for a decision as to the constitutionality of

should Mutaln the legality of tho regula
tion1, tho paper men will direct their ef

NOimcii IN THE ARRANGEMENTS
CONCERNING ITS LOCATION.
Dr. Clmppollo SuysThat nil Rumors to
Tlmt Elfoot Ave Unfounclatl Who
Orlglnutoit tho Ielou of tho University
unci Who Aro to bo Its Faculty.
. Dr, Chappelloof St. Matthow's Chinch
rcgaid to tho published statomout that
was asked to-day by a Cnn 11 rcportor lu
there was a hitch in locating tho now
Catholic University 011 tho Mhlitloton es
tate, near tho Soldiers' Homo.
Dr. Chnppcllo replied that all state
ments to that cll'ect wero unauthorized and
wholly unfounded, There Is no hitch.
Tho Middle ton property has boon
purchased and tho transfor will bo
mado as soon as the title to it Is
t erfcclcd. "Tho puichaso was not cil'eutoil,"
Dr. Chappello said, "until tho present own
ers of It had guaranteed the removal of any
nulsiineo that might be lu existence In the
neighborhood of tho now university."
It Is very probable that tho cHtlo-yaids
ot which complaint has been mado will bo
abolished within two years, as not much
business Is done there. Tho oilglu of tho
report about a hitch In tlio location of tho
collego Dr. Chappello said was tho fact that
somo vory zealous friends oT tho university
had detected a bad odor In tho vicinity.
"It was, however," continued tho doctor,
"discovered that tho odorcamonot from tho
cattlc-yaids but from tho bad dmlnago of a
liouso on tlio piopcrty. Hut, as I have suit
before, wo havo a guarantee that auy nui
sance that may bo found In tho neighbor
hood will bo abated." '
There is already talk of tho probablo
faculty oftho now college. It is thought
that Bishop Spalding of Peoria, III., will bo
mado rector. Ho is a nephew of tho Iato
Archbishop Spalding of Baltimore. Ho is
a very cultured, polished nnd eloquent
gentleman. Ho spent some tlmo in Wash
ington a week ago as tho gliesc of Senator
Yancc. Ho Ii very popular socially. Hols
also qulto a controversialist, aud has con
tributed latgely to tho religious literature
oftho day.
Tho idea of having a National Catholic
University of a high order originated, It is
bcliovcd, with Bishop Becker of Wilming
ton. Ho has for thc)last twenty yoars urged,
both hy pen and from tho pulpit, tho estab
lishment of Elicit an institution, Hols
generally considered tho most learned
of American prelates. IIo Is a German,
and though ho has novel visited Ireland,
speaks tho Irish language very well. At a
presentation to'l'opc 1'iusIX. ho oil'ercd tho
usual congratulations in good Celtic.
Archbishop Ryan of Philadelphia, who is
regarded as tho first orator of tbo Cathullc
hierarchy; Archbishop Williams of Boitou,
of rare business ability and strong Intel
lectual attainments; Archbishop Ireland of
St. Paul, famous for his touipcrauco aud
Catholic colonisation objects; Archbishop
Kain of Whcollng, who is ovor six feet
high and strong in tho wotk of tho chinch;
Archbishop Kldorof Cincinnati and Arch
bishop Kcano of Richmond havo all hoen
most earnest iu promoting higher education
in tbo church. Tho latter is called tho
silver-tongued orator. Whilo at St.
Patrick's church, In this city, his sotnions
wero among tlio Sunday attiactlons. His
pet idea is tho conversion of tho Southern
uegiocs to Catholicism.
OIL DISCOVERED.
A Xutimi! Vein Thoiiirlit to JIUvo
Ucou St in cli.
Ycstci day afternoon at" o'clock oil was
struck iu tho excavation bolug mado on F
street near Flovcuth street. Mr. John
Dorr in charge of tho gang at work
thcro noticed a strong smell of oil wlion
a depth of about twelve feet was
reached. Tho smell camo from tho sldo of
tho excavation near tho foundation of tho
houso adjoining. A match was applied to
somo of tbo clay taken from thcro and tho
oil with which it was saturated ignited.
A small triangular oxcavatiou was mado.
Into this tho oil was to-day oo.ing almost
impcrciptlbly fiom two directions.
It is not believed thatitho oil comes from
a quantity of that lluld which may havo
been spilled iu years past, but from a
natural vein. Tests will bo mado to dis
cover if tho vein amounts to anything.
Tho oil comes Into tho llttlo triangular holo
with water. About two gallons, half oil
and half water, havo 0 far been tho result
of tho find, A number of people visited
tlio place to-day aud took small bottles of
It away. Tho proporty upon which tho
find has been mado belongs to Mr. CUdoron
Carlisle. Tbo fact that Levis' olllco used
to bo in tho vicinity is not supposed to havo
had anything to do with tho discovery of
oil.

This only child of lMwiu Booth, says a
Boston correspondent of tho .llfawv loimntl,
is a truly charming girl, amiablo, unatUcted

hero and drawn tho best of Boston to hor

woman is capablo of doing. Her engage

Tho Booth houso lu Chcstuutstroet is a gom
in its way, but unless tho fair young mis

never look tho same. Booth is such a dys

Londlntf Assoclntlons Up to Date,
Tho spring nicctlug is a thing Of tho past,
and this morning several thousand pooplo
struck a balance. It Is safe to say that but
few people uro better off financially than
they were bofoto, yot they havo had their
danco and havo paid tho fiddler.
Next week tho cry will be, "On to Haiti
more." Hero most of racing fun for Wns'i
itigtonlaus will end until tho fall meeting.
Somo few will follow tho races nrouud Now
Yoik, and 11 few more will get a f w days
during thoir summer vacation.
Tho lovo for racing has steadily grown
upon our people, until this season showed
an attcmlanco never beforo reached. Sev
eral yean ago trotting was more popular,
but now the pcoplo havo bcon educated up
to running, nud Hotting seems tame.
Tho Jockey Club has bcon well man
aged, and if thoy aro careful now, and
mako no mistakes, they havo a brilliant
future befoto tlicui.
Tho club has bren particularly fortunato
in having such a man ns Mr. Melntyro for
a secretary. Ho lias been ideutillcd with
tho turf fur years as a newspapor man, hav
ing founded tbo Ni-ii ViiiI. Ojiiji tmunii, nnd
is acquainted with all tho owners and has
their confidence. Besides tills ho is al
ways cool aud always pnllto and obliging,
nnd it Is laigcly to his skill and knowledge
that tho Jockey Club ha3 attained Its
present position.
Yestciday tho crowd wasevon larger than
the day before. A feature of tho meeting
has been tho enormous attendance of ladles.
Tho racing was fully as good as that of
tho day before. In the llrst raco Djuohuo
never got Yalloy Forgo fairly running
Doswcll's Duko of Westmoreland was In
front at tho start, aud so hard did Illggs
keep riding, that ho landed him a wlnnoi.
Iliggs is a furious tidcr, and lu a short race
is a dangerous youngster, but ho has uot
tbo judgment to rldo any distance abovo
seven furlongs.
Tho "llttlo plunget," llcrnaid, bought
tho winner foi $l,.iK). IIo will add him to

Moyjiard rodo a beautiful race on Colonol
Sprnguo for the Diplomatic Stakes, and tho
old hoiso took amplo revengo upon To

companion, Tollo Doe, tho day beforo. It
looked liko a great error of judgment on
tho part of Llttleflcld in starting Tecum
sch alter tho raco oftho day boforo
McMahon had Faukio B "out for tho
money" in tho third race, and tho talent
having kuowlcdgo of it. Installed him a
prime favorlto. lfo won clovorly with
i.mmcit a goon second.
It was thought that Faun was tho better
of Scott's pair, and tho book-makers onlv
offered thico to 0110 against him, while
thoy freely laid flvo to 0110 against
Quito. Many pcoplo had gotten it Into their
heads that Blggonctt wa3 tho bc3t '3-yoar-old
here, and if ho had not becu pockotcd
In tho stretch, ho probably would
havo won, As it was, Quito won, Illggo
uclt second, and lies? third.
For tho last raco Mentnioro should and
piobabiy would havo wou, but ho got oft
last, nnd though ho mado a great run, ho
was beaten out a half a longth by John C.

the.lmmouso treasure of Spanish galleons
sunk In Yigo Bay by tho L'ngllsh licet In

amount at different figures, but It is known
that tho licet of seventeen galleons con
tained tho accumulation from tho .Mexican
mines of font years, while tho preceding
licet, bearing tho product of one year was
worth . 10,000,000. This wealth will bo
