After the wel come for which President Faure has prepared some fervent sentences, the glittering crowd of notabilities will pass along the covered way to the hall of the magazine, while thunders from great guns, ringing of bells and the excited cries of a French crowd will greet their majesties' ears. The Interior of the magazine has been decorated and arranged with all the exquisite taste of French masters and wtf »' the amazing liberality of their nr, *t enthusiasm for all things Rus < ,ian. The Interior of the magazine has been divided into a reception hall, a diplomatic hall and a banquet room: The first of these Is hung in rich crimson satin and the decorations consist of a wilderness of exquisite blossoms, from which peep out flowers and devices formed of bayonets, swords, ramrods and other implements of land and sea warfare. The diplomatic hall is draped in yel low satin and decorated with a bewild ering array of beautiful mirrors which reflect at a thousand angles, exquisite pot plants and the fairest blooms of French greenhouses.. Two sumptuous retiring rooms adjoin this hall. The third room wherein the Imperial pair are to partake of French bread and salt, la hung ln pale green satin, set off by heavy velvet portieres and priceless tapestry. The ornaments here are also suggestive of the warfare that the Franco-Russian alliance may be pre pared against, lustres and, panoplies ln which military and naval weapons, models of torpedoes and torpedo de stroyers, great and smaTl guns appear, unobtrusively but none the less signific antly.

In the center are three beautiful chairs of the period of Louis XIV. for their ma jesties and President Faure.

A heavy rain was falling when the imperial travelers left, but this did not deter the crowd of sightseers who had gathered to catch a glimpse of the czar and czarina to cheer them farewell and witness the ceremonies of depart ure. The police, both English and Rus sian, kept a close watch of the route over which the train came from the north and were alertly observant In the crowd here. But there were no signs of anything but cordiality toward the nation's guests. All the ships ln the harbor were decked out in bunting and all had the Russian flag flying at the main. The Rt. Hon. J. G. Goschen, with a brilliant gathering of military notabilities and the duke and duchess of Connaught accompanied the czar and czarina from the train. The crews qf the squadrons of warships In the harbor manned the yards as the im perial pair were being conveyed on board the yacht Pole Star, the Russian anthem was played by the bands amid vociferous cheers from all the crews, as the Russian guests boarded the Pole Star, while salutes thundered from the warships and the garrison batteries.

The question of defraying the enor mous expenses of the czar's visit, it Is said, is still unsettled, but President Faure is playing ducks ar.d drakes with his private fortune, in order worthily to entertain the Ruslsan visitors. The Times' Paris correspondent says: "I have never known Paris to be so ex cited and feverish nor have I seen the provinces march so resolutely in the tiack of the capital.

THE CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY To Be Provided With a New Rector BISHOP KEANE WITHDRAWS In Response to the Su.restion ot the Pope An Appeal to Friends of the Univer sity—The Bishop Will Come to the Coast for Rest Associated Press Special Wire WASHINGTON, Oct. 4.—Bishop Keane, rector of the Catholic Univer sity of America, makes the following statement concerning his withdrawal from the head of that institution: "Since my withdrawal from the rec torship of the Catholic University of America will probably be regarded by a considerable portion of the American public as a matter of some interest to them and since unauthorized state ments are apt to be misleading, I deem it my duty to state briefly and clearly the facts of the case. "On September -Bth I received through his eminence. Cardinal Gibbons, a let ter from our holy father, Leo XIII., of which the following is a translation: To Our Venerable Brother, John Joseph Keane. Bishop of AJasso: Venerable Brother, health and apos tolic benediction—lt ls customary that those who are appointed to preside over Catholic universities should not hold the ofllce In perpetuity. This custom has grown up through wise reasons and the Roman pontiffs have ever been careful that It should be adhered to, Since, therefore, venerable brother, you have now presided for several years over the university at Washington, in the first establishment and subsequent developments of whlchyou have shown laudable zeal and intelligence, it has seemed best that the above mentioned custom should not be departed from, and that another, whose name is to be proposed to us by the bishops, should be appointed to succeed you in this hon orable position. In order, however, that In your resigning this office due regard may be paid to its person and dignity, we have determined to elevate you to the rank of archbishop. Being solicit ous for your future welfare, we leave it to your own free choice either to re main In your own country, or, if you prefer it, to come to Rome. If you choose the former, we will destine for you some archepiscopal see by vote of the bishops of the United States. If you prefer the latter, we shall welcome you most lovingly and will place you among the consulters of the congrega tion of studies and congregation of the propaganda, in behalf of which you could do much ln the Interests •of re ligion ln the United States. In this lat ter "case we would also assign you a satiable revenue for your honorable maintenance. Confidently trusting, venerable brother, that you will accept this, our administrative act, with hearty good will, we most lovingly bestow upon you the apostolic benediction of our pater nal affection. Given at Rome, at St. Peter's, this fifteenth day of September, 189S A. D., nineteenth year of our pontificate. LEO XIII., Pope. "The next day I mailed to the holy father a reply, of which the following is a translation: The Catholic University of America, Washington, Sept. 29, 1596. Most Holy Father—His eminence, Cardinal Gibbons, yesterday handed | me the letter in which your holiness j has made known to me that my admin- Istration of this university now comes I to an end and that another rector ls to be appointed. Without a moment's hesitation, I ac oept the will of your holiness in the I matter as a manifestation of the prov ldenoe of God and from this instant I j resign Into the hands of his eminence, I the chancellor, the office of rector, with I all rights thereto attaching. Thanking ! your holiness for the freedom of choice granted me, I choose to remain in my i own country and, moreover, without any official position whatsoever. Your Holiness' most humble son in Christ. (Signed.) JOHN J. KEANE, Bishop Ajasso. Supplementing the letters, Bishop Keane says: '"I welcome my release from the office of rector of the univer sity with profound gratitude, both to I divine providence and to the pope. While I always, regarded its duties a:i a | labor of love, they had grown to be far j beyond my strength and abilities, and ; the deliverance from the burden ls a j response to many prayers. I was too toyed a soldier to ask to be relieved j from my post, no matter, what its diffi culties, but feeling that my nine years ! of strain and solicitude in the work had brought me close to the end of my j brain and nerve power, I was fully | ready to welcome what has been done. ; I shall now enjoy some months of; greatly needed rest on the Pacific coast. Of course no one needs to be assured that the action of the holy father is I prompted not only by personal kindness , toward myself but also by earnest so lldttude for the best Interests of the uni versity. He believes in rotation ln of fice, as all sensible men must. He knows the evils of allowing any official j and especially the hea.i of a University, ! to fossilize at his post, and ln this all | must acknowledge his wisdom. His en- I lightened prudence and that of the, trustees who have to present the nor- I Inations will be sure to select a rector | tn every way fitted to guide the work to fuller and fuller success. From the peaceful retirement which I trust I have somewhat earned, I shall watch Its progress with unabated Interest. And I appeal to all whom my efforts in be half of the university have ever reached to redouble their Interest, their seal, thslr generosity. In this new chapter of ,01© £4' the university's existence and to make it what by right it must be—the crown-, ing glory of Christian education ln America." REASONS ASSIGNED WASHINGTON, Oct. 4.—The current belief among some of the prominent Catholics of Washington ls that one cf the reasons for Bishop Keane's resig nation may be found In his co-operation with Archbishop Ireland in fostering a liberal spirit as against the old regime. The same persons say the German Cath olics of the country are antagonizing the archbishop and everybody having any thing to do with him for his attitude on the parochial school question. It ls as serted that Mgr. O'Connell, formerly rec tor of the American college at Rome, lost his position be cause of hostility to those who are hostile to Archbishop Ire land and the retirement of Bishop Keane la another evidence of their hostility. Bishop Keane is said to have been a w arm supporter of Archbishop Ireland and his official acts, and that the latter supported Bishop Keane ln all he did. The officials at the Catholic legation here and Cardinal Satolli decline to make any statement in regard to the resignation and declare the news was a matter of utter surprise to them. SATOLLI'S LAST MASS WASHINGTON, Oct. 4.—The last pub - lie mass ln this country conducted by Cardinal Satolll and the farewell recep • tion to him took place here today, the mass being celebrated at St. Aloysius' church and the reception being given at Gonzaga college. Af'ttie first mass also was the first public appearance of the new apostolic delegate, Mgr. Marttn elli. Cardinal Satolll's successor. Rev. William O'Brfen Pardow, provincial of the provinces of Maryland and New York, made an address at the reception and preached the sermon at the mass In the morning. In speaking of Cardi nal Satolll at the reception, his language was very complimentary. The high pontlflcial mass at St. Aloysius' was one of the most Impres slve that has ever taken place in a church here. When the information was received here yesterday that Mgr. Mar tlnelli had consented to be present, a throne had been erected for him opposite to that of Cardinal Satolll. Father Gil lespie told the monslgnore of the ar rangements, who demurred, as he thought It was not fitting that he should have a throne, which would put him on an equality with the cardinal, and he .tt first declined to come. The throne was hastily removed, and then Mgr. Mar tinelll proceeded to the priests' house, where Cardinal Satolll and others were assembled. A company of acolytes es corted Cardinal Satolll through the house and Into the sanctuary, followed by his honorary deacons, Revs. Corne lius Gillespie and William Tynan. Mgr. Martlnelll followed the cardinal Into the church, escorted by his deacons. Rev. C. M. Drlacoll and Rev. Father Fedlgan. Rev. Father Harrlgan of Brooklyn sa: on the right side of the sanctuary with the cardinal. The vestments of the lat ter were particularly remarkable for their splendor. Around his neck fell the chain with the pastoral cross and he wore white shoes and gloves. The wear ing of white shoes at this form of mass is a custom among Europeans, but sel dom seen In America. On his head was the red skullcap and at different times he wore the Jeweled mitre of the bishop. Mgr. Martlnelll was robed ln the vest ments of an archbishop. On his head was the purple beretta. The music Inciden tal to the mass was particularly beau tiful. Rev. Father Pardow ln his sermon call ed attention to the fact that Leo XIII had Illustrated very important doctrines from the beginning of his reign, that of the Bible ami Its Inspiration, labor and capital and many points of philosophy, but that he considered the most import ant lesson taught this age by the reign ing pontiff was the absolute necessity of prayer. The pope had sent to this country two men who are eminently men of prayer—Cardinal Satolll und Mgr. Martlnelll. The priests from out of the city who attended the mass were Rev. Father Hariigan of Brooklyn, Rev. Father Papi ol Woodstock. Md.. Rev. J. P. Qulnn and Rev. Father Mandalarl of Baltimore and Fathers Driscoll and Fedigan of the House of the Augustinlans at Bryn Mawr, Pa. The party were entertained at dinner by Father Gillespie. In reliquishlng office Cardinal Satolli sent the following letter to the bishops throughout the I'nited States: WASHINGTON, D. C 7. Oct. 4.—Your Excellency: After the holy father had shown his sovereign goodness by ele vating me to the dignity ot the cardinal ate, naturally no great length of time could elapse before he should recall me and name my successor ln the office of this apostolic delegation. He has named to succeed me the il lustrious prelate, his excellency, Mgr. Martlnelll, who for his distinguished qualities of mind and for his endowment of prudence has rightly been deemed well tittcd to fill the requirements of this ofllce. and to further the greatest good ln the spiritual government of the Cath olic church in this great country, where the most striking and noblest character istics Is the universal love of Justice, charily and peace. Mgr. Martlnelll has now arrived, and from this day assumes as apostolic delegate the high office the holy father has entrusted to him, witn all the accompanying faculties and pow ers. \ While conveying to your excellency this information I must cordially fulfill a grateful duty by thanking your excel lency for all the kindness you have shown me from the time of my arrival In this country up to the presene day. lam Sincerely grateful for all your goodness. Indulgence and co-operation in every thing which pertained to the duties of my office. It only remains for me to wish you health and prosperity for many years to come In the exercise of your episcopal ministry. With sentiments of highest esteem and fraternal charity, I remain most faith fully yours in.Christ, FATHER CARDINAL SATOLLI. A CUBAN LEADER KILLED.

DANGER AND DEATH BY WRECK AND FIRE A Serious Disaster on tin Santa Pc 11l BEEKLER OF LOS HE! Driven to Suicide by Insaat Fear SEVEN BODIES RECOVERED Otben Remain Under tha Wreck ft the Can ~" ' The Accident Caused hy the Eattaeer*s Orots Carelessness The Boys' College of the Choctaw Htm* tion Burns, Cremating Four of the Young Pupils and Burning Many Others Associated Press Special Wire OSAGE, Kans., Oct 4.—A frightful wreck, attended by serious loss of life, and made more terrible by the self murder of one of the terrified passen gers, occurred at 6 oclock this morn ing on the Santa Fe road, two mllea north of here. Seven dead bodies have been recovered from the wrock, and It is feared that other victims are buried in the debris. The wrecked train was the east-bound passenger No. 2, the same that had such a thrilling experience with bandits tn New Mexico on Friday night last. The wreck was caused by the explo sion of the boiler of the locomotive. The engineer should have stopped for water at Osage City, but being behind time, he endeavored to run to the next tank. Though it ls not positively known, the engineer and fireman having both met death ln the wreck, it Is surmised that this neglect was the cause of the disas ter. The train had gone but two miles be yond the place, about to the Peterson coal chutes, when two terrific explo sions were heard. The locomotive was completely shattered. ' The express, baggage and passenger coaches cams crashing upon the wrecked engine and the coaches that were ahead were piled up ln a heap of wreckage. The coaches in the rear were all derailed, but the passengers riding ln the cars escaped serious injury. The wreck was marked by scenes of the wildest confusion among the passen gers. The nerves of many were at a high pitch as a result of their expe rience with the road agents of New Mexico, and when the crash came ths first Impression of nearly all was that the train had been attacked again by robbers. One passenger, William Beck ler, of Los Angeles, en route to Chicago, seemed to lose his reason. When the crash came he drew a pistol from his pocket and ln the presence of a car full of terrified passengers, took his own life, sending a buljet into his brain. Beck ler had been drinking heavily. He waa about 55 years of age. Owing to the excitement and confusion little could be done to rescue the Injured little could be done to rescue the injured and remove the bodies until the morning sun appeared. Seven bod ies were finally recovered. They are: William Beckler, Los Angeles, Cal. Engineer Strump, Topeka. Fireman Harry Holllster, Topeka, William McAdams,- tramp, riding; on baggage ear, Chillcothe, lowa. Three tramps, names unknown, all of whom were riding on the baggage car. Injured: Mrs. Emma Maxwell, an edlf/)r of tha Evening Telegram, Colorado Col.; hands and arms cut and bruised. William Burns, tramp, legs and arms cut. James Coleman, tramp, cut and badly bruised. None of the express men or mall clerks were seriously injured.
