IT IS "ALL RIGHT.""
The Throngs That Attended the
Funeral of Jerry McOauley
The Reformed Ex-Gouviot Whose Faithful
Ministrations Endeared Him to the
Unnamed Poor of New York.
Touching Eulogy to the Dead Missionary
He Never Did An Un
New Yoek, September 22. Oa a dark
back ground a lew white flowers spelled
out ttw story of Jerry McCauley's death,
with "It Is All Right." So also said the
preacher at the Broadway Tabernacle
yesterday, and the great crowd that
looked into the face of the dead mis
rtonaxy .repeated: "It U all right."
The funeral services were announced for
2:80 o'clock. Loo before that hour
wry seat la tfw large church wad fi led,
aad a squ a4 oi six policemen barred the
ooora. But sill I the crowds poured Into
the church on Sixtti avenue, at the cor
ner of Thirty-fourth street, and, by
the time the pastor rose ,to
speak, there wa another congrega
tion ootaiki the church trying to get in.
tvery doorway wad tried, the eaa;er
Yis-ttors piaitalDg their way loto private
emraucex, anl iM.'lng every available
pace. A young Uuly, one of the choir,
arrived yust at thai opening Of the ser
vices to fiod the way completely blocked,
la vain htm pleaded that some one must
give way; that she tuust get in, or the ex
ercises cou d not go ou. The crowd was
too teat to bo forced outside, and with
tr&rs Ut her eyes she turned away. ISttt
tboAdnjirera of the ex-odnvict and -liils-ikinary
continued to poor into the street,
and at three o'clock tho police kept guard
over the Sixth avooue car tracks,
so that the cars might not be blocked.
Maay grew tired and left, but their places
weie soon lllltd by others etaadint; id.y,
patiently wattle;; for a glfmpac of the nun
they had learned to lore. It was a hot
erogenous assemblage thit lingered
about the church. Here were o!d women,
wrinkled aud seamed, who had known
"Jerry" before his conversion, aud
touching their elbows were young men
wtio had teartjed to live since meeting
the earnest missionary. Here aud there
through the crowd the paiuted i ce of
the acariet woman fhowetl it so If, aud bj
her side pushed the young shop-girl wUd'
had bn saved from temptation by tb
man who lay In his colliu iuside. Thu
tall hats of ha.f a score of brokers
overtopped the straw hats of a few
homeless tramps who had known Jerty
from childhood. For over two hours the
crowd waited, and then, a few stragglers
from the church announced that service
were over. There was a rh to take a
last look at the face of the fricu of
all, and for two hours longer a
continuous stream flowed dowu the ceu
tcr aisle past the cotlln and out of the side
door. Inside the cburch the aisles h Id
almost as many people as the pews, ami
whru Dr. Taytor, pastor of the church,
rose to speak, he looked into the laces ol
1,5) worshipers. The pastor referred
briefly to his long acquaintance with Mr.
McCauley, and said that during all these
years he had never known the dead mis
sionary to do an unchristian act.

AN IMMENSE FARM.
Soiling Land by the Square Mile
in Chihuahua and
One of the Largest Land Sales Ever Con
summated, Becently Made to a
One Thousand Six Hundred and Ten
Square Miles of Land in a
Monterey, Mex., September 22. La
Iiivinta chronicles the consummation ol
probably tbe largest sale of lands ever
made to private purchasers on this conti
nent. The lands Id question are situated
in northern Mexico, and were purchased
by a syudicate of English and Scotch geu
tlcmen named McPbcrsou, Grant aud
Jiu. Dalzell. Although tho price paid
was only $1,000,000 down, yet the area
of country sold was larger than some of
tbe New England States. The posses
sions are situated In the States of Chi
huahua aud Durango. The title of the
lands waa perhaps
TUB MOST ANC1KNT
of any upon tho American continent
This was the first transfer that had been
made In 200 years. Longer ago than that
the King of Spain conveyed this tract of
country to the ancestry of Don Antonio
Ausunsala, where it had remained and
descended from generation to generation
until the present time. More than 1,000
people; as tenents, are living upon their
sol', growing corn and coffee and wheat
hi tho villages, and sheep and cattle in
the mouutains. The lands were bonded
over two years ago to Colonel J. P. Law
son, of Colorado, who paid 100,000 for
a three years' bondment.
THE STIPULATED PRICE
of the land Is 1,000,000, an additional
million to be invested In cattle, blooded
horses and agricultural implements. One
half of this additional million has already
arrived from London, and Is now depos
ited in the City of Mexico and Chihuahua
to tho credit of the fiscal agent ot the syn
dicate. The estate consists of two lm
meuse ranches sub-dlvlded Into six
contiguous haciendas, upou each of
which there is a village with an organ
ized municipal government. Two-thirds
of tho estate lies within the southern
boundary of the State of Chihuahua; the
remaiulug third lu Durango. Tho area
embraced by these propertk-s Is twenty
seven Spanish leagues la length by an
average width ot nine leagues, or an
equivalent in English measure of seven
ty by twenty-three miles, or 1,10 square
miles. Large tracts of these lauds are
the crop consisting principally of Indian
corn, wheat, barley and Irish and sweet
potatoes. In addition they are-' capable
oi grazing iuu.wo Uead ol cattle and
oUU.000 sheep. Besides the above six
haciendas, the same syndicate has pur-
cnaseu two otner ranches adjacent, con
talning 500,000 acres. Tho deeds of
record show that there were also includ
ed in this sale, for special stipulations
uot given, ?5,000 head of sheep, 1,200
head of unbroken horses, 300 saddle
horses, 800 broken mules, 300 work oxen,
2,000 hogs, l,0u0 saddles and bridles, and
800 sets of harness, together with Im
mense quantities of farming tools, many
ot which are ot ancient patterns.

above Jefferson Street This Are was
confined to tho yards of Monroe Bros.,

night, at 3 p. m., when another alarm
was given and It was found that another
fire bad broken out in the yards of
Brown, Strong & Co., the next yard to
Monroo Bros., but situated some dis
tance from It. As the fire In Monroe
Bros.' Yard was under control, It Is not
thought that the second lire In Brown.
Strong & Co. was In any way connected
with it, but that the fires arc the work of
an organized baud of Incendiaries. Fears
are eutertalned of another conflagration,
similar to that of two weeks ago, and
neighboring towns have been called upou
for assistance. Two engines, one from
Llyria, and one from Akron, have al
ready arrived, and others from Sun-
