Tin: STATE TAMP CLOSED.
TWENTIETH SEASON A MARKED SUC CESS—IMPROVEMENT IN THE NA TIONAL GUARD. Peeksklll State Camp. June » (Special).— When the flags were lowered at the State Camp to-day end the salute of twenty-one guns was fired by the E'xtn Battery of Binghamton. the ceremony marked the closing of the camp's twentieth year. But the excellent condition of the squadron of cavalry, the three batteries of artillery and the three infantry regiments that occupied the camp during the brief av'.o»on evidence an evolution in the National Guard during that period which is quite remarkable. Prior to :&2 the regiments in the State's military establishment seldom, if ever, drilled outside of their armories. There were occasional marches. with the pitching of a camp somewhere, but the outings were more or less picnics, where no sys trrnatic instruction -was given. The need for it was felt, however, and finally through the efforts of Adjutant-Gt-neral Townsend, who was most enthu- Fiastic and energetic in his endeavors to build up the puard. aided by Governor Cornell, a portion of the present famp site was leased, and In the sum mi r of ISS2 the 23d Regiment of Brooklyn was or cered MB camp. The season then, as it has been for the la Ft three years, was only four weeks long. tnd rr.ar.y inconveniences had to be endured which have since been unknown. In the annals of the regiment, among other things, there is said to be recorded the far:t that It rained every day of that first week, and iridt there was no reprimand for the sentry who. .... the custom was then, called out the hour of the ;.ifcht, but in this couplet: Twelve o'clock, and all is well- The wind is east, and it rains like hell! But the rain was one of their least discomforts. for the camp was not as thoroughly established as row. There was some system that first year, and the ©rcers prescr.bed that the annual muster should be held in caxr.p. But thorough system in the methods cf instruction developed only gradually, and the tendency among the men at first was to get all the fun possible out of the tour of duty. The means employed were varied, but depended largely upon the Intellectual calibre of the men constituting a command Mostly they took the form of goats. dogs, cats and ducks, which, brought Into camp as mascots, received as much, if not more, attention than the study of tactics, or they degenerated into rr.iid forras of hazing and horseplay. Perhaps the frreatest exponent of the fun In camp was the ludicrous and expensive mock parade of the 7th, one of the funniest and most spectacular af fairs ever seen in camp, while the social side Is doubtless best exemplified in a hall the 22d Regi ment gave one year In the mess hall. Fireworks e'.so had their place every Friday night of the sea son, and the immense throngs of visitors attested the popularity of the camp. SYSTEMATIC INSTRUCTION DEVELOPED. But meanwhile, among the higher officials, the putpoees of the camp were not lost eight of, and eystemmic instruction was slowly being forced to 4h front and fun and frivolity to the rear. The Instructions the regiments were receiving in the mounting of guards, the patrol and protection of camp and property, the daily routine and the dis cipline maintained were showing beneficial results, even ur.der an imperfect system, and staff officers particularly were learning their duties. The line of instruction all this time was left principally to regimental commanders, and the good accom plished in the week's tour depended largely upon their efficiency. Cut under the regime of Adjutant-General Porter this was changed. A military man of long experi ence, he brought the camp and the work done in it under his personal supervision. The novelty of camp life was beginning to wear off, and one by one restrictions and limitations were placed on the xren. The Friday night fireworks show was dis continued, the exploding of giant crackers under a. sleeping soldier's cot was summarily punished. If the responsible person could be found, and so on. until nearly all the oldtlme fun and methods of hazing were elimina*ed. On the other hand, guard duty was placed under the supervision of a special officer , and brought to a high standard; a rigid in spection of camp and quarters was made every morning, and things unmilitary were ordered re moved, and finally drills were reduced to such a systematic schedule that cards were Issued in cots prescribing the kind of drills that should be undertaken each (Jay of the week. These cards •were printed before the ca.np season opened, and every incoming regiment received a set, so that what one regiment did on Monday of this week an other regiment would do on Monday of next week. 1!" it happened, as it did occasionally, that one regi ment was more proficient than another, the drills prescribed on the cards were possibly finished by the middle of the week. Then the colonel was at liberty to drill his regiment along lines of his own choosing ; otherwise he had no discretion in the matter Nor was he ever recognized as post commander except in the absence of General Porter from camp. While every initiative on the part of regimental officers was taken away by this system, it had its proper place in the guard's evolution. It pointed out the value of regularity in armory work, created c higher etandard in drills, made officers more careful in their study of the drill regulations, and accomplished results in other directions that make the work easier now. But it failed in giving regiments practical work, although that might have come had General Porter lived, for the Na tional Guard was his constant thought and study. WHAT GENERAL ROE HAS DONE. After Mi death there was a series of reviews and rc'.Mtary pageants, until the reorganization of the gruard and the appointment of General Roe as Major-Ger.eral commanding. Since then the ten flVncy has been to combine the practical and theoretical, to the great advantage of both. A genera] plan of the summer's work is laid out in the first central order of the year, and regimental com- Oianders are put in command of camp, with the lightest kind of suoervision. A careful inspection 1» made of .cry detail by competent staff officers, end reports are submitted and sent with comment and criticism to the commanding '-fflcer for his information purely, not in <• spirit of faultfinding or -iclverfe criticism. In this way the largest kind ft responsibility rests upon the colonel of a regi ment, end he necessarily develops, when under the old system development was Impossible. The re sult has been, in the last three years, distinct gains Jn soldierly qualities among officers and men, while both, instead of being glad the camp tour is ended, co home wishing they might slay another week, or. at least, could come to camp every year Instead of every other year. The men of the ?th Regiment, which occupied the camp the third week of the month, said, In going home, that heir tour of duty this year had been the most successful ever spent at PeekEkill. and that they had learned more of what the require ments of the soldier were than at any other time hi 'h*-ir history. Squadron A said the same thing. and the 6th Regiment not only said it but most thoroughly .joked it in the last drills and parades they took part in here before going home. The Ist Regiment, composed of separate companies, wr.lch dispersed to-day, also was anxious for an other tour next year. So success, spelled in cap ita! letters, marks the close of the present season. wfcile the results show that the «=> stern now in \'ogu« is the very best for the instruction of the Euird. DETAILS OF CAMP LIFE. The practice marches, which now form a part of the week's instruction, are elements of much value to the various regiments making- them The dis tance covered is net great, about seven miles, but It is sufficient to «rive the men all the Instruction necessary and to take them into camp without the fatigue a longer march would entail. Nothing more is carried on tht person than Is necessary, and all the precautions are 'taken which would be neces tary Id a march through an enemy's country. In camp the cooking is done by the men them («!vee. end, while the regulations provide for the enlistment of a cook In each company, as a mat ter of fact no cooks are enlisted, except In a few Instance*. Some companies this summer had the ume men cooking for them that they had In the Spanish-American War. but In most instances the men were practically new at It. In the 7th Regiment, cooking details served In the kitchen, and their skill was attested by the appetites with which the men went to mess. And their comrade* in arms, who for th* time being turned the spit and managed the ladle, were far more particular than professional cooks would nave been, and esrgs Intended for frying were broken with the skillet, regardless of scorched hands, because "they could be cooked daintier for the boys in that way than if first broken In a dish."

Just one week alter it had been first put up. a stiff breeze having sprung up, tore a great hole in the bunting In the lower part of the coat of arms, the stiffness of tne paint having broken the fibre of the bunting, it was patched up and again raised when Gov ernor Odell paid his first visit to camp, but it had not flown a week before another strong wind tore It down the side from the peak hallyard. Then it went out of commission, and. the State having none other, the State pole ha.« been bare ev*r since. The alertness with which some minds grasp a point understanding^' is often exemplified In the instruction given here at camp. During Colonel * hapin'3 lecture to the Sth Regiment before the march in from the Mohesan camp he took oc casion to speak of the "water habit." the unstinted drinking whenever one becomes thirsty. It is one of the hardest thing's to contend against on a march, and the colonel was seeking to impress the men with some idea of self-restraint In this direc tion. "Don't drink water on the march, men," he said. "It is a bad thing. In fact, nothing could be worse than taking it in large quantities when marching." '"There. Bill." said one private, nudging another, "I told you water was blamed bad to drink. Next time we'll fill our canteens with beer." Major John B. Holland, of General Roe's staff, is exceedingly anxious to know the history of the old house opposite the Sth Regiment's armory. He is cure it has a history, and has made many inquiries. but without securing any information. Htr is still In search of something reliable, and will be glad to have any one write him on the subject. THE CLOSING CEREMONIES. Peekskill State Camp. June 29 (Special).— The closing ceremonies here to-day were at 9 o'clock, but four hours before that time the camp was astir. The 6th Battery, of Blnghamton. was away at 6:45, but behind were left two gun detachments to fire the closing salute. The 33d Separate Com pany, of WaJton. followed, and then the remaining companies were mustered for pay. The payroll was the largest of the season. $12.25>3 SO being needed. After all this money had been distributed in the form of checks there was a little leisure be fore the last assembly was sounded, and this brief interval was consumed in giving recruits one last initiation into camp !ife. The fun. however, wai of short duration, for the assembly was sounded at ¦totS o'clock, and at 9 o'clock the regiment was drawn up on the color line. The ceremony was the same as In former years. Arms were presented to the colors, the band played "The Star Spangled Banner " and the Hags s!ow:y fell from the staff, until the last strains of the a"ir were played, when they dropped gently into the hands of the guard detail At the same ln etant there were a flash and a roar from the two gr'Jns or. the parade ground, and when twenty-one guns hud been fired the regiment broke into column and marched away, the batterymen serving the guns scurrying down the stairs to the ferry to Join their comrades. With the twenty-first gun of the salute every one In camp had be»n relieved from duty, and the officers of Quality Row were not long in .lonning citizens' clothes. Baggage soon after appeared in front of their tents, there was an interchange of ¦roodbva aiid camp w.is at an «»nd. Tht official score of the Ist Battery places It third in the contest. On the shell target it scored nothing, and on the shrapnel target 88. The 6th Battery is therefore the victor. ALLEGED MJ'RDERER ON BAIL. CORONERS JURY AGREES THAT THE DEAD MAN WAS XIL T -ED IN SELF-DEFENCE. "My brother was a man. He never had any trouble that he brought on himself, and always defended himself as a man should. He is dead BOW. and cannot defend himself when his character Is being assailed, but there— there [pointing to John F. Clancy, of Long Island City, who shot and killed John Clark, of No. 160 West-aye.. the same city], there. I say, sits his murderer." With these words Kate Clark, sister of thu mm who shot and killed, faced Clancy in the Coroner's office yesterday when Coroner Bausch was conducting an inquest Into the death of Clark. The shooting took place on the night of June 21 at First-aye. and Thlrty-fourth-st. Mrs. Llsrle Conaty, another sister of the dead man. created excitement when the verdict which said that the killing wa" done in self-defence was real, by fainting and then going into hysterics. The first witness called by Abraham Levy, coun eel for Clancy, was John P. Cor.aty, a brother-in law of Clark and husband of the woman who fainted. He testified that Clark was a man of violent temper, and that on the night of the shoot ing he saw Clark knock Clancy down before the latter had done anything. Hi said also that Clark had threatened the life of Clancy. After other witnesses had testified. Kate Clark arose and asked to be put on the stand. As soon at «he was sworn she dramatically pave utter ance to the words used above. The Coroner had to tell her that that was not evidence, and that, in view of testimony as to the violence of her brother's temper and the testimony of witnesses as to the facts of the shooting, she would better step down The Jury was out less than fifteen minutes, and returned a verdict th^t Clark came to his death at the hands of Clancy, who was acting In belf-der fe r cc Coroner Bausch released Clancy in $10.<"»» bail for the grand Jury. The bond was signed by Matthew J. Golder, Deputy Sewer Commissioner of Queens County. THEY MUST WEAR UNION CLOTHING. DELEGATES OF CENTRAL FEDERATED ORGAN IZATION NOT TO BE RECOGNIZED UNLESS EVERY ARTICLE OF THEIR ATTIRE BEARS THE LABEL. The delegates to the Central Federated Union who happen to wear any article of clothing that dots not bear the union label will have to toe the mark after to-day. On and after next Sunday no delegate will be allowed a seat in the meeting room, in the University Settlement Building, un less every article of clothing he wears bears the union label. This applies to hats, shoes, waist coats, coats, underwear and every article of cloth ing, and is in accordance with a resolution passed by the body about six months ago. A committee of Inspection, it was said yesterday. will be appointed to-day to take charge of each delegate next Sunday before he enters the hall and put him through an examination. •Your hat. please?" will be the first question. He will show his hat. and if it proves to be a union label hat it will be returned to him. He will then be required to show his collar, waistcoat, tie and other articles of attire in order that the in spectors may 6ee if they are union made. It is said that a delegate's word of honor will be accepted as to his underclothing, but some of the delegates who have Spartan ideas on the subject say that the shoes must be taken off to be examined. When a delegate satisfies the committee that every garment be wears is union made he is ad mitted into the ha.:. In case he has a non-union hat or a non-union pair of shoes, allowances will be made for him if he can put up a good explana 1 The committee of Inspection, it is said, will be in structed to look particularly Into the hats. The Hatters' Union cays that there are genuine union hats and imitation union hats. The genuine union hat has the union label sewed as well as pasted In the inside of the bat. while in the imitation union hat there is a union label, but it is only pasted in. A large number of delegates were caught on this technicality about five years ago. TOO HOT FOR LAWYERS TO PLAY. GRI'BER. LAUTEItBACH AND BLACK FAIL TO AP PEAR ON THE DIAMOND Because of the heat the Gruber-Lauterbach base ball same at Jasper Field was not attended with the theatrical features which usually characterize such an occasion. As advertised, the two teams were to have among their members such well known players as ex-Governor Black. •Abe" Gruber. Louis Adler and Edward Lauterbach. "Tom" McGulrk. who said he had never heard of "Suicide Hall," and who boasts of a lons baseball pedigree, umpired the game, and In explanation of the absence of the star players said: "It was too hot for those fellows. They hadn't uniforms, and it ain't comfortable, no how. playin' in yer own pants." The two teams were made up of young lawyers arid law students connected with the two . law firms. One -was, accordingly, called the Hoadly. Lauterbach & Johnson team, and the other the Black Orator. Oleort & Bor:yr.ce team. Judge Olcott was the only firm member present. He played first base. Because- of his long reach, the ball was thrown at him from five to fifteen feet over his 'head most of th« time.

NARROW ESCAPE OF PASSENGERS AND CREW OP EXPRESS TRAIN. Baltimore. June 29.— The roof of the Union Rail road tunnel. In the eastern part of the city, used and controlled by the Pennsylvania Railroad Com pany, caved in shortly before 2 o'clock this morn ing. It is supposed that a defect in the arch of the tunnel caused the accident A narrow escape from death cr serious Injury was experienced by the passengers and crew of an express train which was caught by the failing debris In the tunnel. The train was the regular northbound express, which leaves Union Station at 1:08 o'clock In the morning, consisting of three b-tgcaKe and express pars and three passenger coaches. As far as can be learned, the avalanche of earth and rocks caught the rear express car. which was immediately In front of the passenger cars. The train was not running at a high rate of speed and the jar was not severe. The engineer quickly brought his train to a full stop, and word was sent from a signal tower to Union Station. A yard engine was sent into the tunnel, and the thinly filled passenger coaches were drawn back to union Station without the occupants being aware of the danger.through which they had passed. The houses on each side seem Derilously close to the brink, and should any further cave-in occur they m\ift be precipitated Into the cavity below. The Pennsylvania Railroad officials made ar rangements to use the Baltimore and Ohio tracks from Bay View Junction to Mount Royal Sta- T ion. Through paet-engers from the North and South are being transferred between Union and Mount Royal stations by 'buses. PENNSYLVANIA TRAIN DITCHED THREE PERSONS HURT. BUT ABLE TO CON TINUE JOURNEY. Plttsburg, June 29.— The Southwestern express on the Pennsylvania Railroad, known as train No. 21. was ditched at the east end siding, two miles east of Greensburg, Perm.. at an early hour this morn- In?. Only three passengers were hurt, and their injuries were not of a serious nature. They are Louise Hullton. of Brooklyn; J. J. Harbison, of Louisville, and H. B. Lloyd, of Cincinnati. The other passengers escaped with a shaking up. and those Injured were able to continue on their way. It is thought that the accident was a deliberate attempt at train wrecking, and a searching inves tigation will be made. The switch had been turned and the lock broken, but the engine and the ox press and combination baggage cars got over safely. The last truck of the last sleeper Jumped the track, and the four sleepers following were thrown over against the embankment. The pa?sengers were trinsferred to another train and brought .0 this city. MINISTER HURT IN COLLISION. Portland. Ind . June 29.— A Pan Handle passenger train crashed Into a northbound Grand Rapids and Indiana passenger train nt Rldgeville to-day. ?erl ously injuring the Rev. G. H. Hill, of Richmond. Ind.. and slightly injuring: one other passenger. The Pan Handle locomotive and a Grand Rapids coach were Jammed Into the station, and traffic was delayed several hours. KBSSLER'S COUNTER CLAIM -57 00, 000 HE CHARGES THAT THE LONDON BROKERS SOLD HIS STOCKS BELOW THEIR VALUE. The answer in the suit against George A. Kessler. of this city, brought by Crews, Llchtensteln & Co.. of London, to recover a balance of J108.505, alleged to be due on account of stock transactions with the firm In March. April an 3 May of this year, was filed yesterday in the clerk's office of the United States Circuit Court. Kessier charges that the complainant sold his stock* illegally and improper ly, on a falling market, at prices far below their value. He also charges that on May 13 Crewg, Lichtenstein & Co. had in their possession shares of Union Pacific and Chicago. Milwaukee and St. Paul, which they were bound to carry until "se* tJement day. May 31." Instead of doing this. It is alleged in the answer that the London firm sold out these shares between settling days. Keßsier sets up a counter claim for $750. C00 for damages sustained through their action. The reply of Crews. Llchtenstein A Co. to Kess ler's answer was tiled yesterday afternoon. They allege that they held the stock. 7,500 shares of Union Pacific and 8.85 D shares of Chicago. Mil waukee and St. Paul stock at the time of the panic on May 9. They held the btoek until "Mt tlins day. May IS," they assert, when as Kessler did not respond to th«-ir request to take up the fhar^s or to supply margin for his account, the brokers proceeded to sell out his shares in the ordi nary manner, using all precautions to obtain th« best possible prices on the London market, and closing all transactions between May 15 and May 21 In a conservative manner It was aald that an application would be made within a few days to compel Kessler to furnish de tails as to the alleged damaged. A DIVORCE GRANTED TO YOUNG GRAVES HIS CUORUB GIRL WIFE FIRST ASKED FOR A SEPARATION FROM HOTEL MAN'S SON. Frederick R. Graves, the son of a well known hotel proprietor, received a decree of divorce from his chorus girl wife, Caroline H. Graves, In the Supreme Court yesterday. Mrs. Graves was a Casino chorus girl whin she met young Graves. He gave her wines and dinners lavishly at his father's hotel, and subsequently married her. in March. 1399. Thelt married bliss was shortlived, and finally the young man left her. She brought a suit against him for separation, and he retaliated by suinc her for an absolute divorce. The case was sent to Daniel F. Holahan, as referee, and he reported In favor of young Graves. On his report Justice Truax signed the decree. MAINE'S LUMBER INDUSTRY. FEW SAWMILLS AT WORK. OWING TO THE FLOODS. Bangor, Me., June 29 (Special).— Few of the saw mills on the Penobscot River are now cutting lum ber. The floods of last spring, which were the most severe for years, carried away millions of logs that were being saved for manufacture until the season's drives would come In. Only three of the dozen or more large mills between here and the Passadumkeag are in operation. As It looks now it will be another month before the drives will get in so that the mills can again start up. The manufacturers, however, are not finding a great deal of fault because of the cessation of op erations, for the longer the shutdown the bigger price they will get for lumber In the Boston and New- York markets later on. There are no large shipments of lumber to market Just now. Just enough Is going out to steady the market and keep It where It is. If this can be continued everything will be well for the Penobscot lumbermen, but if large shipments should be pushed now the bottom would drop out, and It would be a long time before it could be put back again. It takes a good com bination of things to offset a stubborn lumber mar ket, but this year the winds and the water and everything else seem to have formed an association for the preservation of prices. Hundreds of men are out of employment as a consequence of the shutdowns, but the chances are that the mills will run late into the fall, thus making up to the work men the time they are now losing. THE PRINT CLOTH MARKET. Fall River. Mass.. June 29 (Special).— Local brokers report that the sales for the week In the print cloth market amounted to 250,000 pieces, most ly wide goods. Few regulars were disposed of at that time. The actual total sales amounted to only a bare week's production of local mills, yet bad manufacturing been so disposed this week's sales might have reached the record figure In a month In which record making sales have been a feature. The mills have been holding off for better prices, the 2% cents basis not being satisfactory. AH j the week buyers have been in the market in force with offers to purchase large amounts of goods, both for Immediate and contract delivery on the ' present price basis. Most of the goods sold were | on a basis a shade higher than 2% cents, with j manufacturers slow sellers because of an expecta tion that they would Boon advance another eighth, ; Reports from buying centres indicate that the , market for converted prints and oolored goods is active, and that a fair business is reported in all . lines of manufactured goods. Prices are being ad- j vanced in accord with the expectation of higher i prices by the manufacturer of goods In the gray, and j the outlook is for a heavy fall business. A number of buyers who have remained out of the market during the last two weeks, active trading will be forced to stock up at the advanced figures which prevailing conditions seem to assure manufactur- I ers. They will find that stocks here have been well cleaned up. and that buying must take place on a figure which will be based on the increased price for the raw material. AH talk of the dissolution of the selling com- ; mlttee has died out. and that body Is in control of the market here. The market is very firm at 2H cents for regulars, and a slightly higher basi« for , odds. SENT TO HOFFMAN ISLAND. Eleven passengers of the Ward Line steamer' Esperania, from Havana, were transferred yestar- ¦ day to Hoffman laland for observation. . ' HONOR FIVE AGED PRIESTB THE FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THEIR ORDINATION CELEBRATED. A remarkable memorial celebration and din-, ncr were held at the General Theological Sem inary last night. They were in honor of the fiftieth anniversary of the ordination to the priesthood of the Rev. Drs. Thomas Gallaudet. P. K. Cady. William W. Olssen. J. Selden Spen cer and William S. Coftey. AH of these men except Dr. Cady were pres ent. He went to Europe several weeks ago. All of 'the five clergymen are still preaching. They were ordained by Bishop De Laneey on St. Peter's Day, June 29, 1851. the ordination taking place in Grace Church, Brooklyn Heights. Priestly orders were conferred at that time on ?.he largest class that had ever assembled in the United States, it is said. j In the chapel of the seminary at 6 o'clock it} the evening the memorial service took place Bishop Potter conducted it. The full vested choir of Trinity Church was present. Nearly all of the prominent Episcopal clergymen of thJ city and surrounding country were present. The exercises consisted of a processional hymn, sen tences, the Lord's prayer and versicles. psalter, lesson. Magnificat in D, lesson, "Nunc Dimittls" in D, creed and collects and anthem. Then Bishop Potter made an address of seven minutes. He spoke of a learned disbeliever who admitted that the two professions in which some real good was done for humanity were those of the doctor and the clergyman. "It was on a hot night like this," he continued "several years ago, when a bishop stood in a great church in this city. He preached on love and forgiveness. He saw a woman leaning over the rail of the gallery as he was preaching. His attention was called to this woman and to the pathos in her face. She soon disappeared. Ten days after ward, after a night's lecture, this woman ap proached the bishop and said to him earnestly. 'You do not remember me. but you saved my life.' This woman confessed that she had deter mined to end her life by plunging in the bay. She had not lived a life of righteousness, had been sinned against, and thought that there was no trust to be placed in humanity. She entered that church that hot night from sheer curiosity. Her soul was awakened. Brethren, this illus trates the work of consolation and peace that you are able to give mankind." After the sermon Bishop Potter was asked if he was the bishop he referred to. He smiled and shook hla head. The four aged clergymen sat In the chancel, arrayed in their vestments. After the services in the chapel the clergymen went to the sem inary dining hall, where a dinner was served. The Rev. Dr. Henry Mottet. rector of the Church of the Holy Communion, was chairman of the committee of arrangements. Bishop Pot ter acted as toastmaster. In front of Bishop Potter were five large morocco covered boxes containing the silver loving cups to be presented to the five clergymen in whose honor the dinner was. given. At the close of the dinner Bishop Potter said: We are gathered here to-night, brethren, to do honor to five men, all of whom were ordained at the same time. in the same place and by the same 3!»hop. It is well to say that these men are still in the service of the Church. We will do honor to these worthy men by presenting them with lov ing cups. We are sure that they will not use them for any unworthy purpose. You have all seen how th is have strenuously adhered to iced tea as a solace and a consolation on this hot night. Bishop Potter then presented the cups. DR. OALLAUDET S GOLDEN JUBILEE. tiif: fiftieth anniversary of the aged clergyman's ordination fitting ly celebrated. The anniversary of the Rev Dr. Thomas Gal laudet's fiftieth anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood of the Episcopal Church was cele brated yesterday morning at St. Matthew'!

VENGEANCE ON SHEEP HERDER. Santa Fe. K. M.. June 2S (Special). —The report reached here to-day that Komulo Lucero. of Pasa motite. Union County, has killed his sheep herder.

Pontia. the chief game protector, and has taken up the matter of the seizure of the forty-nine thousand head of game by order of the game protectors, in the cus tody of the Arctic Refrigerator Company, in New- York.

As the penalties. If the law Is good, would amount In the neighborhood of $1,000,000, it seemed to Gov ernor Odell that this arrangement was altogether too one sided, and not for the best lntere-ts ot 'he State.
