Associated Press Dispatches to the Heraij Washington, January 9.—Judge William D. Kelley, of Pennsylvania, died at 6:20 o'clock this evening. At the bedside were Mrs. Kelley, his daughter, Mrs. F. O. Horstman, his sons, William D. Kelley, Jr., and A. B. Kelley, Dr. Btanton, and Mr. Kelley'e private secretary, Mr. Weirick. He was conscious at tbe last, as he had been at intervals during the last two days. His remains will be buried in Laurel Hill cemetery, Philadelphia. The imme diate cause of Judge Kelley's death was intestinal catarrh, brought on by cold con tracted during Christmas week. For some years, however, he had been a constant sufferer from a cancerous growth in the side of his face, which was removed about six years ago by a surgical opera tion. The relief obtained, however, was only temporary. The funeral services here will take place in the hall of the House of Representatives Saturday noon. Judge Kelley was born iv Philadelphia April 12, 1814. He lost his father at an early age, and was apprenticed first as a printer and subsequently as a jeweler in Boston, where, while following his trade, he acquired a reputation as a writer and speaker. Beturning to Philadelphia in 1840 he studied law, was admitted to the bar the next year, and while practicing his profession devoted much time to literary pursuits. He was elected Attorney-General of Pennsylvania in 1845, and from 1846 to 1556 was Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Pennsylvania. In 1880 ho vi as a delegate to the National Republican Convention, and in the same year was elected to Congress, where be has served continuously ever since. He served in the lower House longer than any other member, and for this reason was often called "the father of the House." He has for many years been known as "Pig Iron Kelley." Until 1848 Mr. Kelley was a Democrat and free trader, but in 1854 he joined the Republican party, became a protectionist and ardent abo litionist. XfcNATK PROCKEDINVS.

They are treated like dogs there, and when they come here they become our labor agitators and masters. Mr. Breckenridge—They spend most of their time here, then, in reforming ?

THE INMATES CRUSHED TO DEATH A Gotham Tenement Caught Beneath the Walls of a Falling Church. Associated Press Dispatches to the Hbeald. ! San Francisco, January 9.—The steamer City of Peking arrived from Hougkorg and Yokohama this morning. Chinese advices give particulars of a theater collapse in Shan Tung, China, re ported by telegraph from Shanghai, De cember 3d. It appears th it the accident occurred at Han Ting, east of Shan Tung, October 13th last. The temple where a performance was being held stands on a high terrace in the middle of the town. A hill was once there, but has been cut away except the portion on which the temple stands. A wall almost perpen dicular and about fifty feet high was built up from the street to support the terrace. This wall ended in a low parapet around the temple, the enclosure furnishing seating capacity to an im mense number of people. During a per formance the entire wall gave way, either from being defective or from the great pressure above, and the whole mass, men, women and children, were hurled to the street belov;. Groans and shrieks rent the air. People who had first fallen, some of whom had escaped with only bruises, were killed outright a moment later by their comrades falling upon them. Many died of suffocation, and others who were momentarily stunned met death by being trampled upon while trying to escape. All this time immense blocks of stone and con crete from the broken wall fell with deadly force. Heads were burst open, bodies crushed, arms and legs broken, and in a number of cases almost sev ered from the body. A total of 2CO dead bodies had been taken from the ruins, and it is thought that the list of the dead may number 250. CRUSHED BY SACRED WALLS*. Tlie Fatal Collapse of a (»otkam Church House.

The ruined building was tenanted by the Mott and Purdy families. They num bered nine persons. Five of them are reported dead. Two were carried out of the ruins so seriously injured that their death is only a question of a few hours. The tenants in the little frame adjoining were alarmed last Bight by the manner in which the church wall shook and rattled. Their own dwelling was considerably shaken, and it was with 1 fear and trembling that they retired. Twice during the night some of the in mates were aroused by the roaring of the wind, but everyone, was in bod and asleep when the disaster occurred. The heavy black wall of the church fell suddenly with a crash and in a heap i that bore through the cockleshell structure adjoining like a battering-ram. Ifaofaon*. seem d To part in twain, and instantly the shrieks and groans of the injured ptartled the residents for blocks about. The house was torn in such a manner that a bedroom was exposed, and in the bed, within plain view of those in the »treet, lay the dead hodyof Mary Purdy, I borne down beneath the mass of debris. Later news shows that only two, Mary I and David Purdy, young people, were killed. Others were wounded. UOTHAItI'B DEATH R A fE. A L&rte Per Cent of the mortality Due to Influenza.
