Caracas, Oct., 10. Gen. Joaquin Crespo was accorded an enthusiastic reception upon his triumphal entry into Caracas Sunday. He marched into the capital at the head of the remainder of his army, 3,000 men having taken possession of the city Saturday. A council of his officers and advisers was held and the result v as the procla mation of Crespo as provisional president of the republic. He is to hold office < nly until the regularly elected congressman shall have had time to meet again and proceed to the election of a constitu tional successor to ex-President Rai mundo Andueza Palacio. Crespo then issued a proclamation naming the following cabinet: Minister of foreign affairs. Pedro Ezequiel Rojas; minister of the interior. Leon Colina; minister of tina" ce, Senor Pietro: minister of war, Guzman Alvarez: chief of police, Gen. Victer Rodriquez; chief of telegraphs, Leo jioldo Baptista: minister of public works, Mu noz Tebar: minister ot instructions. Silva Gaudoiphy: general in chief. Kamon Guerra: governor ot Caracas Senor Andrade. These are all well-known Venezue lans who have aided tbe cause of the legalists by active service in the field or by financial contributions. The pro visional cabinet gives general satisfac tion. It will restore order throughout the distracted republic. The rumors con cerning the escape of the de facto presi dent. Vibegas-Pulido, and his minis ters are confirmed. They managed to get a vessel bound for Martinique. It is said to be their intention to proceed to France. Fell Dead in tbe Pulpit. Washington, Oct 11.—Rev. Thomas Allen (colored) chaplain of the Provi dence Presbyterian church of this city, fell dead in the pulpit Sunday while preaching a sermon. He was 4-> years HAIL COLUMBIA. The School Children of the Country Will Have a Holiday. Washington, Oct 10.—The order of exercises which will be carried out by the school children of the capital and throughout the schools of the country on Colum bus day, October 21, will be quite elaborate. A flag will be raised and saluted bv the children, and a detail of veterans of the war will be at each school building to assist in per forming that duty. Then "The Song of Columbus Day," set to well-known music will be sung. There will be an address to be determined by the best speaker among the boys and an ode will be read by a young lady. The singing of “America" will be the clos ing of the musical part of the pro gramme. This programme is one ar ranged by the executive committee of superintendents of education, and will be carried out in all the schools of the country. OFFERED A REWARD. The Caraegle Company Anxious to Dis cover the Bomb Throwers. Pittsburgh, Pa., Oct 10.—The Car negie Steel Company have offered a re ward of SI,OOO for the arrest of the per petrator of the dynamite outrage at Homestead last week. The company has its own detectives working on the case. Friday at midnight an attempt was made to blow up the lodging house of the non-union men at the Twenty-ninth street city mill. A bomb was thrown. It was filled with dynamite but so poorly con structed that it failed to do its work. At the time of the explosion a rain of bricks, stones and clubs fell on the heads of the non-union men in the mill. It is thought that both assaults were the work of strikers and it is likely that arrests will be made short ly both at Homestead and Pittsburgh. MADE THEM ALL RICH. A Decision of the Courts BrinffM Fortune to the Woods and Their Attorney. Denver, Col., Oct 10.—The United States court of appeals has denied the petition for a rehearing in the case of the Wood heirs against Jerome B. Wheeler. The court had rendered a de cision giving the Wood heirs a one-third interest in the Emma mine at Asp**.:, together with a like propor tion of the. product of the mine for the past seven years. F. A. Green, the attorney for the Woods, will re ceive probably the largest single fee ever earned by a lawyer in the coun try. He gets over a million in money and a large, interest in the mine, for which a syndicate once offered $17,500,* 000. Every one of the Wood heirs is made independently rich by the deci sion.

Seattle, Wash., Oct. 10.—The < ana dian Pacific Navigation Company’s steamer Premier was struck by the steam collier Willamette in a dense fog off Whidby island, about 10 miles south of Port Townsend, at 3 o’clock Sunday afternoon.

Wyncoop, Tacoma; John Rankin, waiter, Seattle, aged 25; un known passenger, roan about 40, still In wreck; unknown passenger, jumped overboard and drowned. Famine Will Follow Hie Plague. Hamburg, Oct. 11. —The outlook for the coming winter among the poor anti bereaved of this city is gloomy. The money thus far subscribed for the re lief of distress caused by the cholera has already been entirely spent, with little visible lesult. The need of an organized system of relief is urgent, and unless something in that line is speedily accomplished famine will fol low the plague. Proclaimed a Holiday. Chicago, Oct 11. —Mayor W’ashbnrne has issued a proclamation declaring Thursday, October 20, a holiday in and for the city of Chicago, directing that all public offices be closed, and request ing that all business be suspended on that d'ay in order that citizens may participate as actors or spectators in the great demonstration in honor of the dedication of the World’s Colum bian exposition buildings.

Seibert, who was sent to Hamburg and Berlin by the health board if this city to observe and report on the methods of quarantine against cholera in use there, has returned and says the only way in which cholera can be effectually kept out of this country is to stop im migration.

STRIKERS SCORED. Justice Paxton’s Charge to the Jury in the Treason Casos. He Say* the Homestead Wurkmeu Had No Excuae for Violence —Corpo ration* Have the Kight to Im- port Armed Guard*. BAD FOR STRIKERS. Pittsburgh. Pa., Oct IL—Chief Jus tice Paxton, of the state supreme court at 10 a. m. charged the grand jury in the treason cases against the Home stead strikers. The charge contained over 5,000 words and embraced * graph ic resume of the circumstances leading up to the riot at the Carnegie Home stead mill and the subsequent charges of treason lodged against thirty-three union men. Justice Paxton said: "We can have some sympathy with a mob driven to desperation by hunger, as In the days of the French revolution, but we can find none for men receiving exceptionally high wages In resisting the law and resorting to violence and bloodshed in the assertion of imaginary rights and entailing such a vaet expense upon the tax payer* of the aommonwealth. It was not a cry for bread to feed their famishing lips, resulting in a sudden outrage, with good provocation: it was a deliberate attempt by men without authority to control others in the enjoyment of their rights. ” In defining the law. Justice Paxton said: "When the company shutdown its works and discharged Its men It was acting strictly in the lines of the law; it could not compel the men to work nor could the men compel the company to employ them: no arrangement could be made in such regard except In the nature of a contract agreed upon by the parties. Upon this subject their t ights were mutual. The company had the undoubted right to protect its property: for this purpose it could lawfully employ as many men as it saw proper and arm them If necessary. The right of the men was to refuse to work unless their terms were acceded to and persuade others to join them In such refusal, but the law will sus tain them no further. The moment they at tempt to control the works, and to prevent by violence or threats of violence other laborers from going to work, then they placed them selves outside the pale of the law. Il 'annot be tolerated for a moment that one laborer shall say to another laborer: ‘You shall not work foi this man for that wage without my consent,’ and then enforce such command by brutal vio lence upon his person. "You will observe that the offense charged is treason against the state, and not against the United States. It is a matter with which the latter has nothing to do and over which it cun have no jurisdiction. A mere mob, collected upon the impulse of the moment, without any definite object beyond the gratification of its sud den passions,doe* not commit treason, although it destroys property and attacks human life. But when a large number of men arm and or ganize themselves and engage in a com mon purpose to defy the law. to resist its officers and deprive their fellow-clti- Zens of the rights to which they are en titled under ths constitution and laws, it is a leyfng of war against the state, and the offense is treason. Where a body of men have organized for a treasonable purpose every step which any one of them takes in part ex ecution of their common purpose is an overt act of treason. Every member of such asserted government who has participated in such usurpation has committed treason against the state." He closed by saying: “We have reached the point in the history ot the state where there are but two roads for uh to pursue. The one leads to order and good government; the other leads to anarchy. The one great question which concerns the people of this country is the enforcement of the law and the preservation of order, ” When Justice Paxton announced that it was not necessary that only the com monwealth be inveighed against for one to be guilty of treason, that it is proper for any firm or corporation to hire guards from any state whatsoever and arm such guards, the faces of de fendants lengthened perceptibly. The instructions fell among them as a knell. There seems to be little doubt that true bills will be returned. And if true bills lie returned there is little doubt that several of the strikers will be convicted. THE MARKETS. New York. oct. 11.

New York Pays Tribute to the Great Discoverer. Six Day* of Festivity Inaugurated by Serv ice* in tbe Churches—Over 10,000 Children In I’arade—Fire work* on the Bridge. THE NATION'S FOUNDER. New York, Oct. 10. —After many months of preparation tbe great New York celebration of the 400th anniver sary of the discovery of America by Columbus was ushered in Saturday by special services in the various syna gogues of this city. The city in many quarters displays profuse decorations, and it is believed that by to-day hardly a house in the city will lx? with out some semblance of decoration in honor of the great event. The services in all the Hebrew tem ples were distinctively patriotic, differ ing only in this, that the synagogues adhering to the rigid ceremonials of the orthodox faith permitted no interi or decorations to interfere with the se vere simplicity of the services incident to the Feast of the Tabernacles. Special services were held In most of the churches. The choirs in some of the churches were assisted by orches tras, and elaborate musical programmes were given. The pulpits and altars were adorned with flowers. All of the discourses were prepared with special consideration for the children, so that the youngest attendant could appreciate the importance of the services. YOUNG AMERICA. New York, Oct 11.—Young Ameri ca's patriotic tribute to Columbus thrilled the metropolis Monday, the third day of the Columbian celebration. There was a triple programme by which the refinement of the nation was to be commemorated, showing the progress of art in the exhibition at the National Academy of Design, the ad vance of education in the marching youth of the schools and colleges, and the allegory of the "Triumph of Colum bus" at Carnegie Music hall. The parade of school children was the first event of the legitimate cele bration. About 10,500 children from New York, Brooklyn and New Jersey, each carrying American flags, were in line. About 10,000 of these represented the public schools of New York city, 8,000 from Brooklyn and between 4,000 and 5,000 from New Jersey cities. Results of more than 250 years of educational work were represented in the parade, for the first, school found ed by the old Dutch settlers in 1633, in that part of "New Amsterdam” now known as West Seventy-seventh street, is still in existence and is called the school of the reformed church. THK FIREWORKS. Brooklyn bridge was the place of at traction in the evening. A gorgeous display of fireworks had been promised, and at an early hour great crowds be gan to gather at points of vantage on the river fronts in both cities, while hundreds of craft; loaded with passengers, were anchored at favora ble points in the river und harbor. Al! the high buildings in New York near the river were utilized, and those on Park row and other near streets were fairly covered with people. The display fully met the expectations of the people. Among the set pieces was a statue of Columbus ami a representa tion of the ship in which the discoverer set sail from Genoa. Two tons of powder were used in the colored tire for the series of fifteen illumina tions, which were accompanied with salvos and flights of screaming rockets, bombs, roman candles and gas bal loons. One of the most striking dis plays was a representation of Niagara falls in silver fire. This was at the New York end of the bridge. It was 625 feet wide and represented a daz zling cascade of shining silver 200 feet high. There was a novel telegraphic message, written in letters of fire, sent from one tower to the other by the Morse code. THE NATIONAL GAME.
