MARTINZLLI AT CEREMONY
BALTIMORE, April 6.—The silver jubi
lee of Pope I>eo XIII. was observed with
solemn and unusually elaborate services
at the cathedral today. The ceremony
was maikcd by the presence of two
- cardinals. Cardinal Martinelll, th»
apostolic delegate who came over from
Washington last night to take part in the
cervices, pontificated, and Cardinal Gib
bons preached the sermon. Notwith
standing the inclemency of the weather,
a large congregation was present.
At the conclusion of the pontiflcial
mass the Rev. Father O'Donovan, of
Cardinal Gibbons' household, read a pa
" pal brief, extending special plenary in
dulgences to all Catholics of the archdio
cese who attended the triduum.
At 7 o'clock this morning Cardinal Gib
bons celebrated mass at a special service
for the cathedral sodality, at which 1,000
person- received communion and the pa
pal blessing;
GlMmmu Elotincnt in Praise.
His eminence said in part:
"For nearly 2,000 years the bishop of
Rome has been the most conspicuous
jiK':re in the theater of public life. The
name of the sovereign pontiff Is indelibly
marked en the pages of ecclesiastical
history. It is intimately and inseparably
associated with the progress and enlighl
"•enment and Hie Christian civilization of
the world. The pope ever stands be
fore us as the commander-in-chief of the
arm of the lord of hosts. You might as
well shut out the light of day or the
air of heaven from your daily walks ad
exclude the Roman pontiff from his le
gitimate and permanent sphere in the
hierarchy of the church. The history of
the Unitod States with the president left
out wov'<i be more intelligible than the
history of the Christian religion with the
omission of the name of the vicar of
Christ."'
His eminence then briefly outlined the
personal and ecclesiastical history of i/co
XJII., dwelling especially upon his ency
clicals, of which he said:
"The tirst encyclical to which I shall
* allude is on 'Christian marriage,' which
was published in 1880. The holy father
vindicates In strong and earnest lan
guage the unity, the sanctity and the in
aissolubiity of the marriage bond. He
tells us that the married couple are the
source of the family, and the family is
the source of society. Social life can
not be maintained in its purity and integ
rity unless it is sanctified at the foun
tain-head of the home. For the stream
| does not rise above its source.
Jesuit Dignified the Workshop.
"The encyclical on 'the condition of
'•workmen' was promulgated in 1591, and is
an exhaustive document on the rights
and duties of the laboring classes. Nevei
did the Redeemer of mankind confer a
greater temporal blessing on humanity
than by ennobling and sanctifying man
ual labor and by rescuing It from the
degradation which had been attached to
it. Christ comes into the world, not sur
rounded by the pomp and splendor of an
imperial majesty, but He appears as the
i reputed son of an artisan. 'Is not this
the carpenter, the son of Mary?' the peo
ple said to him. He has shed a halo
around the workshop and has lightened
the workmen's tools by assuming the
trade of an artisan. If the professions
of a soldier, of a jurist, or of a prelate,
can be dignified by the examples of a
Washington, a Taney, and a Carroll,
how much more is the calling of a me
chanic ennobled by the example of
Christ?
"A conflict between labor and capital
is as unreasonable as would be a conten
tion between the head and the hands.
The interests of capital and labor are.
correlative. Capital without labor would !
be unproductive, labor without capital !
would be unprofitable. What would it
avail a capitalist to say, 'Behold this
mountain of coal is mine' if there were
no hairy sons of toil to extract the coal
from its recesses and send it to the mar
ket? What _ would it profit the laborer
to exhibit his brawny arm and his skill
if there were not capitalists to give him
employment?
Church Lettvens All Government.
"The third encyclical to which I shall
allude appeared in ISSS and treats 67 the
'constitution of the Christian states.' In j
this document the holy father clearly de- I
monstrates that the Catholic church can
adapt herself to all forms of civil govern
.jment. When I was invited to Komc by
the pope in ISS7 to receive the insignia of
a cardinal I delivered an address in the
church of Santa Maria, in Trastavere, my
titular church, and as I took this encycli
cal for the text of my remarks 1 cannot
do better than to give the following ab
, " 'struct of the sermon, which was pro-
U rounced upon that occasion:
" 'Our holy father, Leo XIII, in his lum
inous encyclical on the constitution of
Christian' states declares that the church
is not committed to any particular form
of civil government. She adapts herself
to all. She leavens all with the sacred
leaven of the gospel. She has lived under
absolute empires, under constitutional
monarchies, and in free republics, and
everywhere she grows and expands.
" 'She has often, indeed, been hamper
ed in her divine mission. She has even
been forced to struggle for existence
wherever depotism has cast its dark
shadow, like a plant shut out from the
blessed sunlight of heaven. But in tne
genial atmosphere of liberty she olossonia
like the rose. For -myself. *5 a citizen
of the United States, and witTOut closing
my eyes to our shortcomings as a na
tion, I say with a deep sense of pride and
gratitude that I belong to a country
where the civil government holds over us
the Aegis of its protection without Inter
fering with In in the legitimate exercise
of our sublime mission as ministers of
the gospel of Christ.
Liberty Here Without License;
" 'Our country has liberty without li
cense, and authority without despotism
She rears no wall to exclude the stranger
from coming amongl us. She has lew

a 4. r>-caliber Winchester. The negro was
in his turn riddled and his body thrown
into a fire.
Sheriff Cassaway went to a negro set
tlement, "Knardtown," this morning to
arrest Will Reynolds for obtaining goods
under false metenses. The officer was
met by the negro, who opened a fire witu
a Winchester, wounding the sheriff and
immediately firing upon the deputy, Will
Gassaway, who was some 300 yards away,
mortally wounding him.
Dynamite Used l>y Officers.
As soon as posible every man in town
who could procure a gun was in the
neighborhood, but owing to the location
none dared to venture within the open
space. Dynamite was procured and the
house in which the negro was barricaded
was bombarded, but to no effect. At 1
o'clock Capt. Simpson, of the Wheeler
rifles, arrived with twelve rifles and 1,000
cartridges, which were distributed among
twelve picked men.
This company was stationed around tne
house and riddled it, but the negro haa
taken refuge in the cellar and returned
the fire, killing Jones and wounding Fin
ney. Coal oil was then procured ar£ af
ter four hours of hard work the houses
adjoining that In which the negro was
located were fired by the Wheeler rities,
who had arrived on the scene.
The negro took refuge in a shed and
v. rhen it was fired he opened fire, killing
Wallace and wounding Davis, but the
people and some militiamen riddled the
negro and the crowd, numbering I,'JO',
grabbed the body and threw it back into
the burning building.
Wallace, who was killed, was closing in
on the negro, when he was shot through
the body. His body fell in the burning
debris, but was recovered. Davis, Wal
lace and Falkner were the men who
fired the buildings. Relic seekers cut
off the negro's fingers and such parts
of the body as could be procured.
Three houses were burned in the effort
to reach the negro.
Several horses were killed in the battle
Tonight it Is reported that the sheriff
and his brother have no chance to live.
So deadly was the negro's aim that it
was possibly an hour before Prout could
be rescued. Not a shot was fired by
Reynolds that did not tell. The excite
ment today was intense, but there is no
fear of an uprising among the negroes.
Fully 2,000 people from Florence and
Sheffield were here, and every surgeon in
the two towns was pressed into service.

EMPEROR IN EULOGY
GERMAN KAISER PRAISES THE
PHILANTHROPY AND THE
AIM OF RHODES
BERLIN, April 6.—"This bequest shows
the wide reach of Cecil Rhode's mind and
his vision of the future," said Emperor
William to Dr. yon Lucanus, the chief of
his majesty's civil cabinet, who alluded
to the will of Mr. Rhodes during an
audience with the emperor yesterday
morning.
It was then pointed out to his majesty
that Mr. Rhodes, while leaving precise
directions as to the selection of the "ben
eficiaries of the Rhodes scholarships in
other countries, the selection of the ben
eficiaries of the fifteen scholarships set
aside for the Germans had been left to
the discretion of Emperor William.
The bequests of Mr. Rhodes are regard
ed at court as constituting an enduring
impulse to good feeling betweei Ger
many, Great Britain and the United
states and the colonies of these coun
tries, and as giving more substance to
the grouping of the Teutonic powers.
"The earth belongs to th_e vital living
peoples, and these should act as one
when inefficient powers check advance*
ment," is another utterance attributed to
the Gorman emperor when his majesty
was speaking of Prince Henry's trip, ana
the need of a better understanding with
the United States.
The inclusion of Germany in Mr.
Rhodes' aims has brought out some con
siderate expressions concerning his im
perial purpose from even.the Anglophobe
journals, although most of the commenta
tors on iTTs purposes hold him responsible
for the Boer war.
"Why have I not such a minister?"
Emperor William is said to have exclaim
ed after an interview with Cecil Rhodes
in 1880. This remark is now widely re
produced, and it enables the opposition
paragraphists to revile the present min
istry.

GLASGOW, April 6.—The casualty lists
of the Ibrox park disaster, when over
275 persons were killed or injured by the
collapsing of a spectators' stand during
the international football match yester
day afternoon between England and Scot
land, have been completed today. They
eclipse ail the reports and estimates of
tha casualties which were current last
night.
The disaster has resulted in the death
of twenty-one persons and the injury of
over 250. Nearly 2C*O of the injured were
so seriously hurt that they were taken
to Infirmaries for operations and treat
ment. One hundred and ftfty of the in
jured still remain in the city infirmaries.
A large proportion of the injured suffer
from broken limbs, crushed bodies and
gushed heads and faces. Several mere
deaths will undoubtedly result from the
more critical cases of fractured ekulls.
Today the infirmaries were besieged by
friends and relatives of the victims ol
the disaster, and heartrending- scenes
were witnessed when the names of those
who died today were posted outside tho
buildings.
The action of the authorities at Ibro%
park in averting a more general panic
by permitting the game to proceed wffflo
they encouraged the impression that pre
vailed among the crowd within the in
closure that the accident was not so
serious, is now commended. The incon
gruity of the yell of applause mingling
with the groans of the struggling suf
ferers, will never be forgotten by those
who witnessed the scent at the rear of
the terrace.

KLERKSDORP, Transvaal Colony,
April U.—Details received of the battle at
Doorr.balt farm, March 31, in which
the British lost three officers and twenty
four men killed, and sixteen officers and
331 men wounded, while the Boers lost
137 men killed and wounded, show that
quite 2,000 Boers opened a strong attack
from, different points, with three gunh
and a "pom-pom."
This attack was made at a moment
when the British had left their luggage
in a lager in charge of the Canadian
contingent, and were galloping across the
open plain with the intention of captur
ing a Boer convoy, which had been d!s
covered five miles ahead. The British
dismounted and opened a return fusilade
on the Boers.
While the luggage, in charge of the
Canadians was sent for the British form
(d a camp and began digging: trenches.
The shelling of the Boors stampeded the
mules and caused confusion, but other-
wise it was not very effective, as many
shells failed to explode.
The Canadians were attacked by strong
numbers, but they gallantly repulsed
every attempt made by the Boers to
break through. One party of the Can
adians fought until all were killed or
wounded, and the last man of this party,
although mortally wounded, emptied two
bandoliers of cartridges at the enemy,
and then broke his rifle.
The fighting was severe and general
for fully three hours, but after the Brit
ish had entrenched and the guns got into
action, tho forces repelled numerous and
determined attacks made under the per
sonal exhortations of the Boer leaders.
Toward night'the fire gradually ceas«d,
and the Boers retired.
The British then telegraphed for aid,
and further entrenched their camp for
the night, to await the arrival of Gen.
Kitchener, but the Boers made no at
tempt to renew the attack.

PRETORIA, April 6.—Details received
here of the rear guard action during the
night of March 31, between the Second
Dragoon Guards of Col. Lawley's com
mand and the Boers, near Boshman's
Kop, show that a force of 200 British,
while endeavoring to surprise a Boer laa
ger, rode straight into a force of 400
Boers. The night was dark.
The Boers were hidden In a drift and
PRICE TWO CENT3-.J JBv£sb£
opened fire from almost nnderthe legs of
the British horses. A fierce hand-to-hand
struggle ensued in which both sides fro>
ly used the butt ends of their rifles. The
British regained the ridge they had just
left and began a rear guard action.
In the meantime a strong force of
Bo€ts had barred the road back to the
British camp. The coming of daylight
enabled Col. Lawley to see that the
guards were hard pressed, and he dis
patched reinforcements with two guns to
their assistance. The reinforcements
soon compelled the Boers to retreat.
The British under Lawley had a very
hard fight and were ordered to retire by
squadron. The Boers disputed every Inch
of the road and continually attempted
to rush the guards, shouting "Hands
up!" At each successive position taken
up the British appeared in di
minished numbers, for as it grew light
er the aim of the Boers improved propor
tionately.
Careful computation gives the total
strength of the scattered Boer comman
dos at between 8,000 and 9,000 men.

CHICAGO, April 6.—A certified check
for $3,000, drawn to the order of !

president March 28 by the committee of
citizens which Gov. "fcates appointed in
December last to raise funds for the re
lief of Boer women and children in the
concentration camps of South Africa. In
asmuch as the committee was without
satisfactory means of forwarding the
money, President Roosevelt was request, d
to accept the fund and have it forwarded
through such channels as he might
best, to be disbursed for the relief of the
sufferers for whom it was intended.
A letter from Secretary Hay under date
of April 3 has been received by Peter
Van Vlissingen, secretary of the Illinois
committee, acknowledging the receipt of
the check by President Roosevelt and
stating that, as directed by the pres!.!' ;.t,
the money has been forwarded to the
United States consul general at Cape
Town, that being, in the president's opin
ion, the most expeditious way of trans
mitting it to its destination. The con
sular officer at Cape Town, Secretary
Hay stated, has been directed to distrib
ute the fund in the manner intended by
the donors.
President Roosevelt and the secretary
of state having so readily complied with
this first request. Mr. Van Vllssingen
announced today that it was now the
purpose of the committee to undertake
the collection of a much larger sum, and
that a systematic effort would be
throughout the state to collect cl
and drafts for SI each, payable to Theo
dore Roosevelt. These checks and drafts,
Mr. Van Vlissingen states, will be for
warded to the president from time to time
as they accumulate.

NEW YORK, April 6.-Tho police and
the liquor dealers forced on Greater New
York a "dry" Sunday today. Though
there were degrees of dryness, so to
speak, in different sections of tne metrop
olis, the day has had no equal In the
suspension of the liquor traffic since five
years ago, when Supt. Thomas p. Byraea
tightly dosed the saloons one m< morable
Sunday.
On that occasion those pirtt
uous ' ts were compelled to re
sort to places outside of Chief Byrnes*
sphere of mflui nee. Ilia task
is said to have been easier than that
which confn nted th
he had no "Raines law hot
their sandwiches, to contend n
These hotels must be taken
Uon therefore when the word "dry"
is used in connection with its of
today, for the man who had cash to buy
a sandwich and a diink had small dinT
culty in slaking his thirst. Pew liquor
rs had the temerity to to ep open
and serve drinks alone, and of tho c who
did tlw majority were invited to visit the
nearest police station, there io remain
until bondsmen appeared.
Unquestionably the dryest part „f New
York today was that section whei
:id platoon of police made
so many arrest*. This is known as tho
.Thirty-seventh street police precln t. only
one alleged violator of the excise law
was found today by the officers and only
two or tli- s law hot
their doors, and the proprietors Baw that
the law was closely observed.
Speak Eniiy is Established.
In the -Tenderloin," now known M th<j
'White Light" district, liquor was sold
but only under conditions which proved
drawbacks to many of the thirsty.
. In many of the, saloons the shades were
drawn in the barrooms, but It was said
that improvised bars w«t*e established in
upstairs rooms. In a few places the pro
prietors arc alleged to have established
what is known as the "Kansas speak
easy," or bUnd pig, consisting of a cir
cular opening in a wooden partition into
which was fitted a round ■board arranged
to swing about. On each Bide of tho
round door was a shelf on which the bar
tender could serve drinks to the waiter
without being seen, and, even 1: the polica
had succeeded in getting In, th» y could
not ii»ve arrested the bartender, as no
one could see him. The customer simply
placed his change on the little shelf and
then rapped, at the same time calling
ou.. his order. A moment later the little
door would swing around and on the shelf
of th.-> circular bar the customer would
find the desired drink.
Diirks were served all day in the din
ing rooms of the big Broadway and Fifth,
Avenue hotels, and, although' they wero
sold within the prescribed hours, no at
tempt at interference was made. No
one, however, was permitted to sit down
and order a drink, even though he or
dered a sandwich at the same time. Tho
hotel proprietors insisted that something
akin to a substantial meal at least bo
ordered.
Even fjin.lj Stores < lo««-.l.
For the first time In many rears the
srloons In the residence section in Upper
fllarlem were all cCosed. Despite the ex
cise excitement in the city from time to
time the liquor dealers in this section
have* always kept open.
On the Bowery It was exceedingly diffi
cult to get a drink. The saloonkeepers
were not ready to take chances of ar
rest, and for the most part kept their
doors locked.
In Brooklyn and other parts of Greater
New York the closing law
observed.
The police also compelled the small
shopkeepers throughout the city to close,
except that the procers and delicatessen
shops were permitted to keep open until
10 o'clock. For the first time In years
the small dry goods shops in the uper
part of the city had their doors locked,
an,] the stationery stores ami news
stands were also compelled to close in
many sections of the city.
In some instances the police even or
dered the confectionery stores cl<
Seventy-nine arrests for violations of
the txcise law wire made in Manhat
tan and The Bronx, between the hour
of midnight Saturday and 11 o'clock to
night. There w<-re in these two l.oroughs
fourteen arrests for violation of other
Sundaj' closing laws.
In Brooklyn the police reported t wenty
sf-ven nrreats for \iolation of ttm ■
laws; th^-re was one In !: i and
none in Queens. This la a total of 121, as
against 64 last Sunday.
