conditions are not serious.
Two games were schedulei be
tween Boston and Philadelphia thi.
afternoon and the attraction drew
over 10,000 persons to the ball park.
The accident occurred at 5.40 o'clock,
while the Boston team was at the bat
in its half of the fourth inning of the
second game, and was indirectly due
to a quarrel between t wo drunken
men in the street. The National
League stands are built of steel and
brick, the brick wall extending on
tirely arund the grounds. At the
top of the left, field seats, and ex
tending from the grand stand to the
end of the bleachers, there was a
walk abut 3 foot wide, which over
hung the street. It was this walk
which gave way under the heavy
weight.
Men who were standing on the
walk were attracted by a disturbance
in the street. They leaned over the
railing to see what was the trouble,
and this drew the attention of othei
spectators, who rushed on the walk,
The walk became over crowded and

WHIPPING A WHITB WOMAN.
Horrible Outrage at Georgia Penitentiary
Farm-Public Indignation
is Aroused..
Atlanta, Ga, August 9.--Already
in the throes of caloric discussion
over the fight in the Legialalure now
in Session to abolish the convict lease
system-a fight that precipitated the
r the charge of lobbying and is produc.
3 ing daily sensations -Georgia is thrill
ing with indignation over a lashing
given to Miss Mamie Dechrist, an
unfortunate but cultured young
woman at the State penitentiary farm,
where she dis3beyed the wife of the
man in charge and was guilty of im
pertinence.
Known as the "Diamond Queen,"
formerly of Savannah, Georgia, her
whole behavior since the commission
of the crime has been such as to
cause many persons to believe that
she is not of sound mind, and, hold.
ing this belief, the indignation of the
general public over the mere whip
ping of a woman is trebled in Savan
nah and where she was known, into
nothing short of a horror.
Still another feature which stirs
the situation mere deeply is the at ate
ment issued by Capt. Foster, who is
in charge of the working of the con
victs in the fields, that his resignation
is on the way to the chairman of the
State prison commission, as he had
learned that, following his open state
ment that he believed the present
convict lease system should be wiped
out, coupled with his refusal to work
Miss Mamie Dechrist in the fields
the day before she was whipped, be
cause she was in no condition for
such work, led to the offering of his
place to Capt. Dennis, of Putman
County.
BIS DECHRIST LASHED.
When Capt. Foster refused to work
Miss Deohrist in the field, asserting
that she was in no condition, he sent
her back to the house, which depart
ment is under the supervision of
Capt. Allgood, with his wife as matron.
What occurred there is not known in
detail. No one here will discuss it.
But it is known that she was whip-.
ped and the matter kept a profound
secret. The authorities here of the
State prison commission denied all
knowledge of the affair and Capt
Allgood refused to tell or to allow
anyone to see Miss Dechrist, stating
she objected.
. The lashing was given in the pres
ence of Dr. Adams, the farm physi
cian, who was there to see that she
was whipped no longer or more
harshly than she could statbd. A
thin garment covered her back, but
did not protect her from the cruel
blows. It must be left for the public
to draw its own inferences-whether
Miss Dechrist did not wish to see
visitors, whether she wvas prevented
from seeing them, or whether her
cond(it.ion was such as to render her
physic*ally unnble to see any one.

stick them at me until I just havo tc

THEB CORONATION OF THE POPE.
Most Magnificent Rite of the Catholic
Church-The Basilica Crowded to
Overflowing.
Rome, August U.-The ceremony
of the coronation of Pope Pius X
took place today in the Bnsilica of
St. Peter's, in the presence of the
princes and high dignitaries of the
Church, diplomats and liomatinobles
and with all the solemnity and splon
dor associated with this, the most
magnificent rite in the Roman Cath
olic Church. As Cardinal Macchi,
the dean of the Cardinal decons,
placed the triple crown on the head
of the venerable Pontiff, the throng
of 70,000 persons, gathered within
the Cathedral burst into unrestrained
acclamations, the choir into a hymn
of triumph, and the bells of Romo
rang out a jo) ful peal.
It is fifty.seven years since the
Romans and Europe assisted at such
a function in St. Peter's. The great
Basilica, popularly supposed never
to have been quite fnll, was over
flowing with humanity. The Papal
throne, a bewildering mixture of
gold, red and silver, was erected in
front of the high altar. As, con
trary to custom, on these ocentsions,
there were no galleries, the 3asilica
bore more of its normal aspect. On
the altar, which was dressed in white,
stood the famous silver gilt, candle.
sticks and a magnificent crucifix. All
the available standing space witlin
the Cathedral wits divided mito see
tionis by wooden barriors, which to it
certain extent, kept the vast, crowd
in order.
