SOL. SMITH STEPS OFF.
Sol. Smith, the well known ac
tor, died Thursday morning last at his
residence, 148 West Fourteenth street, New
York. Mr. Smith had been suffering for
several weeks and his condition was deem
ed so serious a few days ago that his wife
who was traveling with Lester Wallack's
"Lady Clare" company, was summoned to
his bedside. The news of the commedian's
death was received with astonishment by
the few actors who still remain in the city.
Many of them were not aware that he was
ill. Mr. Smith was about 4o years old,
having been born in Kentucky in 1S39.
He was the son of Sol. Smith, the cele
brated comedian, who became famous
through the west and south between 1830
and 1S50. The father was also a member
of the old theatrial firm of Smith & Cald
well. These two gentlemen were the pio
neer managers of the west, and their com
panies plaTed to houses in all of the prin
cipal cities west and south. Mr. Smith
was also a brother or the late celebrated
actor, Mark Smith. The deceased made
his first appearance in New York during the
season of 1863 at the Winter Garden thea
tre, playing the Hebrew character of Na
than, in the burlesque, "Leap." Subse
quently he was attached to various com
panies and played in the principal cities
of the country, his specialty being that of
an ecentnc comedian. He acquired
a reputation aoove the average
in that line of business. Eight years
ago he married a widow, daughter of fc'edly
Smith, the old manager of the Boston mus
eum, who had acquired something of a rep
utation of an actress in California. Mr.
Smith was a good musical actor, and four
vears ago made quite a hit in Brooklyn as
Sir Joseph in "Pinafore" and in "Our
Boarding House." He also attracted con
siderable attention as Shouter while his
wife assumed the role of Mrs. Culver.
During the last theatrical season, Mr.
Smith scored quite a success at Tony Pas
tor's theatre by his rendition of the charac
ter of the husband in "Yim," with Neil
Burgess as the leading actor, winning great
applause. The dead actor, besides his wife,
leaves a stepson and daughter.

has been the Bar association meeting which

Big wigs from all over the state were

Among these, the most eminent lawyers
of the country, there could not help but be
men of grand intellect and even in conver
sation, keen wit, apt illustration and fine
points were conspicously plentiful.
The banquet which was given luesdav
evening was an elaborate affair, the menu
being a carefully prepared one not only in
its epicurean serving, but in the manner
in wnich it was printed, the paper being a
delicate cream tinted parchment with scar
let letters and bordering.
THE BANQUETING TABLES
were in the form of a hollow square and
each individual's name was placed on the
plate allotted to him.
.highly gentlemen sat down at once and
as the tables were adorned with flowers and
fruits and napkins folded so as to represent
boats, shells and tans, the euect was hne.
A novel feature ol the banquet, worth
mentioning, was the drill of the waiters.

The Iron Trade.
St. Louis, July 5. The Age of Steel pub
lishes to-day over ninety letters from lead
ing manufacturers of engines, iron and
wire of working machinery, steam pumps,
hardware specialties and iron roofing in
the principal cities east of St. Louis, setting
forth the present condition of these indus
tries and giving reports as to the outlook
of the trade in these lines during the next
six months. It appears from these let
ters that the condition of business in these
industries is not as bad ss has been repre
sented, and that the aggregate of sales for
the first six months of this year is consid
erably greater than those for the last
half of 1883. Engine builders have been
wen engaged, anu in some instances are
behind with their orders. Manusacturers
of wire are working to their fullest ca
pacitv. There appears to be more busi
ness depression in the east than west. The
present dullness of trade in some depart
ments and low scale of prices nrevailing is
attributed to a want of confidence induced
by the late failures in New York and un
certainty as to the tariff legislation and
political struggle now fairly commenced.

Moberly, Mo., July 4. Special. The
horrors and fatality resulting from the
late disaster at Grand Eiver bridge are fasfc
developing in detail as the wreck is clear-"
ed, and what was by some strange means
given out as a minor accident, is proving
to be one of the worst catastrophes ever
occurred in the state. Up to the present
time, 12, m., nine more bod is had been
taken from the debries which, with those
recorded yesterday, increases the number,
KNOWN TO BE DEAD,
to fifteen, but up to the present writing"
only four have been identified as follows t

John A. Dillon.

ningham, and Jno. Long, of Sumner, are
known to be still in the wreck. Divers are
still at work but how long it will be before
the fall extent of the calamity is ascer-
tained, is not known.
THE CAUSE OF THE DI3ASTER,
is said to be the defective character of the
bridge, the centre span of which,
being the portion which gave way, is about
150 feet in length and was supported tem
porarily on false work while undergoing
repairs. Its elevation is about forty feet
from the surface of the water and since the
work of repairing has been in progress ,
trains have been required to cross the
bridge at a very low rate of speed. Phillips
Beck, the engineer of the unfortunate
train, in backing over the bridge, shut offr
his steam for this reason, but when the
center of the bridge was reached, finding
sufficient imputus had not been given to
carry him over, steam was again put on
and the concussion caused the bridge te
tremble and totter. Finding the bridge
giving way, he sounded the whistle to-
alarm the men, and but for this, not one ot
those who occupied the eight cars would
have escaped, as a moment later the entire
structure gave way with a crash, precipitate
