The great Hebrew festival season begins Mon day, or rather at sunset Sunday evening. That is the beginning of the new year, according to the Hebrew reckoning, the first of the month of | Tlshri, of the year 5648 after the creation of the world. Rosh Hashanah, or new year day, will be celebrated rrom Sunday evening until the follow ing Tuesday evening. Some of the Hebrews be longing to reformed or modern congregations celebrate only one day, while the more strict Israelites observe two days. The holiday Is known also as the day of remembrance, and of the serv ices In the synagogue the blowing of the ram's horn forms a peculiar and significant part. Rosh Hashanah ushers In a series of holidays of most sacred character to all good Israelites. Wednes 1 day, September 21, Is the fast of Oedalyah; Satur day, the 20th, is the sixth day of penitence, and Is especially a day for reviving religious sentiment. On Tuesday night, the 27th, begins the great Day of Atonement (Yom Klppur), the most important day In the Jew ish calendar. on that day every Jewish man, woman and child will gather Into the house of worship. It Is the day upon which the lsr.iellte feels himself near to his God. It is a fast day, and lasts from sunset until sunset. At sunset on October 3 begins the Feast of Booths, i which lasts for eight daysL and with palm branches, citron, the myrtle and tne willow, representing strength, meekness, purity and charity, the Israelites render thanks to the Creator for all the bounties which a kind Providence nas showered upon them ana on the earth. October 11 is the festival of rejoicing In the law. On that day the most conservative and orthodox congregations finish the reading of the weekly lessons of the Pentateuch. The school board Tuesday night adopted a resolution excusing Jewish children from attendance at school on Jewish holidays. THE THEATER BUILDINGS. A New Fire?Escape to be Devived (or Theater*? Proposed Action of the Au thorities. Building Inspector Entwlsle, when asked by a Star reporter if he proposed to take official action on the report of the grand Jury on the condition or the theaters, said ho was uuable to answer the question. He has, he said, sent for a copy of the grand Jury's report, and will consider it in connec tion with any steps he may take In the matter, so far as the question of authority is concerned, the theaters, he said, can be compelled to make any alterations that may be necessary, and to erect suitable fire-escapes and stand-pipes on the exteriors, and red lights and gongs at the exits and stairways In the Interiors. But , said Mr. En twlsle, the fire-escape, as recently devised and rec ommended by the fire-escape commission and approved by the District Commissioners, is un suitable for use upon a theater, and it will be necessary, therefore, for tne commission to adopt an escape that will meet the demand. Mr. En twlsle said that he accompanied the grand Jury on their rounds but the recommenda tions they made did not emanate from him. Speaking of fAlbaugh's Theater, he said that so far as he could remember the grand Jury found that there was no barrier between the auditorium and the staire of the theater other than a cloth curtain, and not, as there Is al the National Theater, one of asbestos, which is fire proof. M r. Entwlsle said that Col. Ludlow recently in structed him, as chairman of the fire-escape com mission, to call that body together and make an examination of the two theaters. As stated In ye-terday s Star, the commissioner made the ex amination last Monday, and will have a conference wlth the Commissioners as to the further steps to be taken. Mr. Entwlsle says that the examination made by the commission Is entirely distinct from that made by the grand Jury. In reference to the notice which District Attorney W'ortlilngton has sent to the managers of the theaters informing them that unless they made the alterations and improvements suggested by the Jury he would have them Indicted. Mr. Entwlsle said this action has not relation to that which will be taken by the commissioners In any way. In the event of ? compliance with the notice of the dist rict attorney, the recommendation of the fire-escape commis sion will have to be considered In addition. The Putnam Phalanx.

A Happy Reunion CAUSED BT THE KETCBN HOME OF A LONG LOST BON. At the pleasant little village of Alpharetta, Ga., a family rennlon of a romantc character has taken place. In 1865, John Holloway, the son of a sub stantial farmer, concluded togo out into the world, and seek his fortune, soon letters from him ceased to arrive, and the old folks mourned him as lost. As the years passed by and no tidings of the lost one were received, the opinion became con firmed that he must surely be dead. The father and mother took comfort in the other children and tried to forget the one who was absent. Tues day the couple were to celebrate their golden-wed ding. The neighbors had gathered, and as the dinner hour appro relied, Mrs. Holloway ex pressed her sorrow that the one miss ing cnalr could not be filled. "It John were only here," said she, "I would feel that I could ga" The table was set out In the yard, under the limbs of an aged live-oak tree, and the gueats were seated around It. Just then a wagon appeared in view, containing a gentleman with a-heavy black beard, a lady, and four children. The mother's Intuition at once recognized her long-lost sou. He had returned, he said, with his wife and children, because as the day drew nAr upon which his parents would have been fifty years married ho felt strongly Impelled to do sa He w$s now one of the largest farmers near Kiala Neb. There he had married, and now, with his family, he desired to Join the happy circle. The clergyman asked the blessing with increased unction, and the feast passed off hapolly. r <???? At Rock H11L s. C., Monday, the Rer. X. G. price, a Methodist minister, was publicly cowhided by J. B. Johnson for circulating scandalous acortea about Johnson's sister. PHILADELPHIA'S GREAT DAT. Incident* off the Constitutional Cen tennial Celebration. THE NAVAL DISPLAY?ARRIVAL OF PRESIDENT CLEVE LAND?RECEPTIONS BT GOV. BEAVER AND CARDINAL GIBBONS?THE PRESIDENT SERENADED. The enthusiasm In Philadelphia yesterday over the other features of the Constitutional celebra tion was fully as great as in regard to the Indus trial parade, of which a complete account was given in The Star. The naval part of the celebra tion was very Interesting, and was begun at sun rise by the United States war vessels, which had been ordered to Philadelphia to lend their import ance to the occasion, and which were anchored In the Delaware River. A salute of thirteen guns was flred from each one of them, the booming of the cannon being distinctly heard for miles. One hour later the Queen Emma followed with a salute of eleven guns. All of these vessels were hand somely decorated with bunting and flags, and at night they were illuminated with Chinese lan terns. Beautiful pyrotechnic displays were made from all the vessels in the harbor last evening. The training squadron that was to arrive in New York yesterday was ordered by the Navy Depart ment to report at Philadelphia. It consists of the Jamestown, Portsmouth, and Saratoga. Twenty flve years have elapsed since the Jamestown was in that port, from which she then sailed for the China and Japan station. Arrival off the President* A WARM WELCOME OIVEN THE PARTY?GRATIFIED WITH THEIR RECEPTION. The Presidential party, consisting of the Presi dent, Mrs. Cleveland, Secretary Bayard, and CoL and Mrs. Lamont, left Washington at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon In charge of Maj. J. M. Car son. A hot Journal before reaching Baltimore de tained the train twenty minutes, which was not made up during the journey; otherwise the trip was without special incident. At Baltimore a large crowd collected around the station and cheered for the President, but the latter did not show himself, and the train stopped only a few minutes. On arriving at Wilmington there was a blar demonstration, un immense crowd cheering and calling for the President. He finally ap peared In company with Mrs. Cleveland on the car platform and bowed his acknowledgments. At Wilmington the Presidential party were met I by the Philadelphia reception committee, consist- | lng of Thos. M? Thompson, chairman; Geo. W. Chllds, A. J. Drexel, Geo. B. Roberts, B. K. Jami son, and Chas. H. Banes, and escorted to Philadel phia. The party were landed at 38d and Market streets, where the city Troop was In waiting, and under their escort they were driven to the Lafay ette Hotel. Here an Immense assemblage had gathered, anticipating the arrival, and In answer to their repeated calls and cheers, the President and Mrs. Cleveland appeared on tne balcony and bowed their acknowledgments amid tremendous cheering. The President. In conversation, subse quently expressed himself highly gratified by the cordiality of his reception. Gov. Beaver's Reception. THE PRESIDENT AND SECRETARIES BAYARD AND FAIRCHILD AMONG HIS CALLERS. Gov. Beaver shook hands with fully 15,000 people at his public reception In one of the galleries of the Academy of the Fine Arts, and numbered among his visitors a no less distinguished personage than the President of the United States. The governor was assisted by the centennial com missions' commute on Invitations and aids, the introductions being made by Messrs. John Hug gard and John W. Woodslde. President Cleve land arrived at ten minutes before 10 o'clock, ac companied by Secretaries Bayard and Falrchlld and the citizens" committee on the reception of distinguished guests. The party drove direct from the Lafayette Hotel to the academy and entered the building by tne cherry-street en trance. On reaching t he second floor the Presi dent entered the reception room arm-in-arm with Chairman Thompson, by whom he was presented to the governor. The meeting was a very cordial one. The usual compliments were exchanged, the President speaking In almost an inaudi ble voice. When the handshaking had ceased Gov. Beaver waved.his handjto an elevation behind him, on which were grouped several governors antl other distinguished guests. ."Qo upon theptes* form, Mr. Cleveland,^ lie said. "You will find some old mends there, and make some new ones, I hope." President Cleveland at once found him self the center of an admiring throng, and was at the same time the recipient of a warm greeting from those in the governor's line. Finding the ac commodations on the platform somewhat limited, he stepped down by the side of Got. Beaver,where the Introductions and handshaking continued for fully flfteen minutes, when other pressing engage ments demanded his departure. Secretaries Bay ard and Falrchlld also enjoyed a fair share of at tention, but the time allotted the Washington guests was so brief and the numbers desiring to be presented so great that the separate presenta tions were but momentary. Ex-President Hayes arrived about ten minutes after 9 o'clock, and was soon followed by Gen. Sheriaan. waj had Just come from a camp-fire given In his honor by Post2, G. A. R., where he made a brief speech to old comrades, and had a very pleasant time. The governors of other states who called upon Gov. Beaver during the evening were Fltzhugh Lee, of Virginia; Sawyer, of New Hampshire; Rice, ol Minnesota- Wilson, of West Virginia; Lloyd, of Maryland; Foraker, of Ohio; Buckner, of Kentucky; Larrabee, of Iowa; Biggs, of Delaware; Bod well, of Maine; Lounsbury, of Connecticut; Ames, of Massachusetts; Green, of New Jersey; Scales, of North Carolina, and Davis, of Rhode Island. Gov. Ames attended the recep tion in company with Henry Cabot Lodge. Cardinal Gibbons. HIS RECEPTION AT THE CATHOLIC CLUB?PLEASANT MEETING BETWEEN THE PRELATE AND THE PRESI DENT. One of the most brilliant receptions ever ac corded a Catholic priest In this city was given last evening at the Catholic Club to his eminence car dinal Gibbons, ol Baltimore, the head of the Cath olic Church in America. The cardinal arrived at the club shortly before 8 o'clock. He was accom panied by his grace the Most Rev. Archbishop Ryan, Right Rev. Bishops Ryan, of Buffalo; Eeane, of Richmond, and O'Farrell, of Trenton, N.J. Upon entering the parlors of the club, which had been handsomely decorated with plants, ferns and flowers, they found Gov. Beaver and his staff awaiting their arrival. From that hour until 10:30 o'clock the cardinal continued to receive the many distlngulsiied guestji. He wore a rich cassock of red silk and a zuccheta of the same color. The archblshOD and bishops wore purple cassocks. For a time his eminence stood beneath the elaporate chandelier and received the visitors. Tiring of this he seated himself In a large armchair, with the archbishops by his side. The cardinal showed himself to be well adapted to the task of receiving. He had a pleasant word to say to all, and the manner In which be recalled old faces was pronounced re markable. A few minutes after 10 o'clock two carriages drove up to the club, from the first of which alighted President Cleveland, Secretary of State Bayard, and Thomas M. Thompson, chair man of the citizens' committee, appointed to re ceive and escort the President. In the other car riage was Secretary Falrchlld and party. The large crowd of spectators in front of the club house warmly cheered the President, cardinal Gibbons advanced to meet him. They are warm personal friends, the cardinal having met him half a dozen times before. Then the cardinal presented Arch bishop Ryan to the President, the former never having met Mr. Cleveland. The meeting between Bishop Ryan, of Buffalo, and the President was of the most cordial character, they having become acquainted in Buffalo. After all present had paid their respects the Presidential party retired,going to the Lafayette HoteL President Cleveland Serenaded. President Cleveland was serenaded shortly after midnight by the Msennerchor Society,which assem bled in front of the Hotel Lafayette. The Presi dent had retired. The singers also left a hand some basket of flowers to be delivered to Mrs. Cleveland in the morning. Political Fights In Baltimore. DEMOCRATIC DISAGREEMENT ABOUT THE PRIMARIES? SURVEYOR OF THE POET WARFIELD IN TWO AFFRAYS. The factional quarrel among Baltimore demo crats caused two street encounters in that city yesterday afternoon. Mr. Edwin Warfleld, sur veyor of the port, and the champion of the regular democracy, participated in both the fights. The beginning of the row seems to have been some very severe strictures upon the late democratic primaries by ur. j. pemoroke Thorn, formerly speaker of the Maryland house of delegates. Dr. Thom, a democrat himself, asserted that the late democratic primaries were fraudulent. Mr. Warfleld denied it and Intimated that the defeat of Dr. Thorn's son at the primaries for nomination for state senator was the cause of the doctor's ugly charges. Dr. Thom angrily retorted that Mr. Warfleld was the tool of a Boss and dare not speak for himself. This heated conversation took place In the Merchants' Club, and upon Mr. Warfleld remarking that such Tr^iir was out of place at the club the irate doctor declared he would not only repeat it outside, bat would kick the surveyor all over the street If he would step out. The two men passed out nearly together and In a tew minutes were engaged in a fisticuff. Dk Thom was knocked out m short order, and had to be picked up from the street-car trade by friends. About two hours later Mr. Warfleld was accosted On the street by Mr. Decourey W. Thom, a son at the surveyor's late antagonist. The son was bent upon obtaining "satisfaction" for his father's defeat. He used his fists and the surveyor used an umbrella. Several blows had been exchanged when a policeman Interfered and the two com batants were taken to the central station. As neither would make any charge against the other the case was dismissed, surveyor Warfiald's ttce bears the marks of finger-nail scratches. Mr. Thom ^as a cut on the hasd, white his father hhs THE CHICAGO BO.1KB TRAVEDT. Story of tfee Criae for which Seres An archist* are to be Hanged.

At this Instant a pa trol wagon dashed into the crowd, and a dozen policemen formed In line at the gates. The crowd surged forward, and was met by a double volley from the policemen. This was answereJ by a storm of missiles, and as men on both sides were tailing right and left two more wagon loads oi policemen up at a ^al0P- Others followed until 100 policemen faced the rioters. A battle ensued, which lasted about five minutes, and then the rioters fled In all directions, leaving a half dozen or their number on the fleld.

With the approach of darkness on the evening of May 4 the atmosphere seemed pregnant with the promise of eviL The occurrences of the past forty eight hours had caused a reeling of insecurity, an uneasiness that increased with every moment Rumors or all sorts were in circulation early and It was the commonly accepted theory that what ever acts or violence were to take place before the dawn or another day would receive their lnspira Uon at the Haymarket meeting. The current rorebodlngs or impending danger to lire and prop erty were sufficiently shared by the munlciDal authorities to result In the Issuance or orders by the chleT or police arming and stationing a strong detail of police at the Desplaines street station a short distance from the Haymarket. At 8 o'clock a large crowd had collected on the Haymarket in a dlmly-llghted spot, near which were many wagons and trucks. August Spies was the first speaker After a long, rambling talk on the labor problem he said: I What means this disp'ay of Gatlintr guns, cannons, bayonets, patrol wairous, and clubs? What means the calling out of the militia? Is it an entertainment tor vou^jreuUemeu? There are 'Jn.000 or 30,000 families starvation to-day because hus theirrtKhta* ra *re not meu enough to stand up tor Loud cheers followed this speech, and cries of "The laker and "The roper were heard m>m hoarse throats. A. R. Parsons was the next i speaker. He went Into labor statistics largely and defined the difference between trades union ists and socialists. He closed by an appeal to arms by all men who loved their wives and child ren. Sam Fielden was the next and last speaker He harangued the mob In a loud, blatant, reckless way, and asked what was the crowd before him. He said: Wecome here to address you as socialists, rebels to tlui law. Legislation will never help you?never When the rich man understands that it is not healthy to live amoLg a lot of discontented workmen we be able to get legislation, and not before. Fielden continued in this strain until I0'?0a m., when one hundred and fifty policemen"*left the station near by and marched north on Des plaines street. Fielden stopped when the first line was ordered to halt opposite the wagon trom which he spoke. A thousand men had meanwldle gathered. The police marched toward the crowd In platoons, headed by Inspector Bonfleld and Capt. Ward. The line or the first division filled the street from side to side. The police marched into the crowd, sweeping it to the pavements and pressing It berore them. When the front column reached the speakers' wagon, Inspector Banfleld ordered "Haltr capt. Ward cried: "in the name ot tbe state of Illinois, I command this crowd to disperse." FEARFUL WORK OF THE BOMB. As the word left his lips, a spluttering spark of fire arched through the air trom the opening of the alley and over the speaker* wagon. It was the burning fuse of a dynamite bomb, it was well aimed in ltp deadly mission. It fell directly in the middle of the street, and between the first two double columns of police. The instant that it struck the ground It exploded with a terrible roar It did its work well. Twenty-nine mangled men feu groaning to the ground. The bomb broke the ranks of the poUce. A Gatllng gun oould not nave cut a wider swath. A scene of horror followed, the-details of which will never be known. The policemen were demoralized for a moment, but they soon closed and stood their ground. They needed no orders to fire, in an instant every man's revolver was In action and every man shot to kllL For an Instant after the explo sion the crowd seemed paralyzed, but- with the revolver shQts cracking like the tat tpo of a mighty dnim, and the bullets singing In the air, the mob plunged away into the darkness with a yell of rage and fear. It was an Indescribable scramble for life, scores of men were knocked down by those behind thcia. and trampled upon like cattle in a car, unable to rise! Those on the inner circle or the crowd were at the mercy or the police. In a moment after the ex plosion the streets were cleared, but within a ra dius of 100 feet of the spot where the bomb had fallen fully sixty men lay wounded on the ground.

Nearly a month was consumed In obtaining a jury. The hearing of the evidence began on Monday, June 19, and on Friday, June 30, the state rested. The defense finished their testimony on August 10, and the arguments having been heard, the jury returned a verdict of guilty on Friday, August *J0.

Schwab, Fischer, Lingg, and Engel to hang, and Nee be to nrteen years' Imprisonment, In accordance with the verdict. The case was argued before the Su preme Court at Ottawa, March 17 and 18, the Hon.

Foster, one of the lawyers for the defenso at the time of the trial, said this evening that, notwithstanding the talk of an appeal to the United States Supreme Court, the only hope now was In the mercy of Gov. uglesby. Mr. Foster claimed to have no doubt whatever that the sen tence of four of the seven would be commuted. He said: "I have reasons for believing that officers representing the prosecution will use their efforts to bring about such results. I have not only my opinion that that wOl be the case, but I have their i word for It." "Which of the anarchists will have their sen tences commuted. If auv?" "I do not believe that SamWFlolOen, Michael Schwab, or A. R. Parsons will ever be liangPd, and very much doubt whether Adolph Fischer wllL As to the others, at present I must confess It looks pretty blue.-' "Why should these four be let off easier than the others?" "The testimony as to them was so dlffer?nt, and their conduct and actions as proved was such as to warrant a difference In the punishment." A COMMUTATION OF SENTENCE RKC0MMENPKD. The condemned anarchists did not seem to show yesterday that the fatal news of the day before had made any Impression upon them. The representative German paper of Chicago, the NtiuiLi Zeitung, which has hitherto been lu favor of the execution of the anarchists, came out yesterday morning in an editorial somewhat sup porting a commutation of sentence. WHAT GEN. BCTI.BR SATS OF THK CASK. A Boston dispatch reports that (Jen. Butler, who It has been stated would be employed In behalf of the anarchists, explained his position as foUows: "From what examination of the matter I have made I do not see anything to warrant my taking any active steps In their behair. on the oth?-r band, I have not completed the examination suffi ciently for me to definitely refuse to do so. The public may rest assured that I will never allow a man's life to be sacrificed if I can see any ground on which It can possibly be saved. I thoroughly believe, as the Supreme court of Massachusetts onoe expressed It, that a man has a right to quib ble for his life." SKETCHES OF THE DOOMED MEN. Alfred R.

Found In Her Bn?Ue? A PIMMAM'S LITTLE SCHEME FOB SMUOOUNO D1800VEKED AT LA8T. From the New York Herald, September 15. A seizure was made yesterday by one of the eustom-hooselnspectresses, Mrs. L. Morgan, which seemed to Indicate that the new Idea of having female detectives to protect Uncle Sam's pocket is of more value than some people think. Mrs. Mor gan was examining the trunks of a Mrs. Martlen, of Cincinnati, Ohio, a passenger on the Gulon line steamer Nevada. The lnspectress was struck with the appearance of several packages done up In soiled towels which Mrs. Martlen said contained Amply soiled clothing.

IX The people summering here from Washington arc not quite so great In numbers as they have been In some previous years. The reason Is clear. Our village and its surroundings are steadily being improved and beautified, but the railroad gives us the "cold shoulder." It gives us no com peting rates of transportation with the other roads entering Washington. In fact, we bars had a lower commutation rate than we have now. We shall build a dozen creditable residences this season here, and are constantly Increasing our so* coimnodations for summer visitors, and yet, tt must be confessed, our boarders have diminished In numbers this season. We know that this fact results from the excessive railroad fare. Coming out ot the city to the country here is em bargoed by it. Low tares have a great in fluence on people In determining their resident whether it be temporary or permanent. Despuo man)' important considerations, such as the salu brity of climate, beauty aud dellghtfulness of situations, attractive prospect^ excellence at water, and, generally, the abundance, variety, and quality of fruits, the liberal rates ot fare by the other two Washington railroads take from us so many who otherwise would be settlers and sum mer residents here, that we are greatly damageu. A real-estate man on the Virginia side recently Incidentally remarked to me that be bad, in as many as a dosen instances, hud everything for the sale ot land satisfactorily sew led and agreed oil when the question was asked, What is the railroad fare? and the difference between that on this road and the tares on the other Washington roads pre* vented the sale. Who Is benefited by such a rail road policy? This policy is truly, in a business new, in the direction of the suicidal, sound business premises are not, seemingly, recognised, certainly not adopted, by our railroad officiate. The true policy and its success to proven betore their eyes. For an exunple, take one of the roads running oat or Washington, the Metropolitan Branch. It starts from place, the nation's capital. It ends with its connections a lung dis traint tance away at tome piacm, too. It runs trains to accommodate Its patrons, and the fares are fixed at such rate as encourages travel and settlement along the road. I compare rates. This place is, I think, about IS miles by railroad from Washington, and at the "book" rate, the one generally chosen by dally passengers, It costs about cents per mile, on the Metropolitan, Windham's is l3jf miles out* and with a monthly ticket it exists lor each trip U1-5 cents. Hal pine is 14 miles out. and each trip costs 11 K cents, less, It will be seen, than 1 cent per mile. It is such a difference as this in fare that hurts our region, by keeping boarders and settlers away. The rapidity with wnich the Metropolitan has dotted fts borders with villages is a marvel. And then the number of trains dally that accommo dates local travel is another great inducement to both claasee of patrons. This road was granted by the State a franchise lor a general railroad business. It can be seen bow nicely (?) the raana Bre use it. The road commenced rusting trains 1856. A transient or occasional traveler Is charged to ride out here 66 oenta, and the same to return. It is an old-time rate, and Is qtiBcteoUy exorbitant to embargo the latter portion of thto occasional traveling for pleasure. And than s Mmin* Hill terminal Is no railroad suooesa ^ I* AOmr R.
