Archbishop Martinelli, who was present, occupied a seat upon the "throne" which was erected for his special use as a seat of honor. The altar was ap propriately decorated and several distin guished priests assisted the cardinal in the mass. The day has been in some degree a day of farewells to the departing and welcomes to the coming great dignitaries of the church. Tue last official work of the Car dinal in connection with his late official status as direct representative of the Pope is shown in the following letter addressed to-day to the Papal Secretary of State : Apostolic Delegation, ) United states of America, > Washington, D. C, Oct. 4, 1896. ) Your Excellency: After the Holy Father had shown hU sovereign goodness by elevating: me to the dignity of the Cardinalate. naturally no great length of time could elapse before he should recall me and name my successor in the office of apostolic delegate. He has named to succeed me the Illustrious prelate, His Excellency, Monsignor Sebastian .Martinelli, who for his distinguished qualities of mind and for his endowment of prudence has rightly been deemed well fitted to fill the reqniiements of this office and to fur nish the greatest good in the spiri tual government of the Catholic church in this great country, where the most striking and noblest character is the univer sal love of justice, charity and peace. Mon sipaor Martinelli has now arrived, and from this date assumes, as apostolic delegate, the high office which the Holy Father has en trusted to him*, with sir. the accompanying faculties and powers. While conveying to your Excellency this In formation jI , most cordially fulfill - a grateful duty by thanking your Excellency for all the kindness you have shown me from the time of my arrival in this country up to the present time. I an*, sincerely grateful for air your goodness, indulgence and co-operation in everything 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 fra ternal charity, I remain most faithfully yours, Fe. Cardinal Satolli. To-night at New Gonzapa College Hall, the corner-stone of which was laid by Car dinal Satolli, his Eminence was tendered a farewell reception by the students, the occasion also being the dedication of the new hall. ; The auditorium and gallery, which are of spacious dimensions, were crowded to the fullest extent, and when the Cardinal entered, accompanied by Archbishop Martinelli, the entire audience rose and greeted them with applause as they passed alonz the aisles on their way to the stage, and when the curtain arose exhibiting a garden scene, fortified with pots of chiys anthemams, palms, geraniums and other flowers, witn the Cardinal and the Arch bishop clothed in their robes of scarlet and dazzling jeweled insignia, surrounded by a number of prominent Catholic clergy men, appearing as a living center piece, there were renewed demonstrations of favor from the audience, at which both the Cardinal and the Archbishop raised their hats. ... Grouped about them . n the stage were several clergymen. The function, which was altogether social in its character, opened with addresses from the students of Gonzaga College, all of which tended in the direction of expressing the great re gard felt for the Cardinal and mingling regrets for his departure with praise and "welcome for his successor. . And when one of the youthful orators, bestowing his meed of praise, alluded to greater honors in the future that may be awaiting the guest of the evening the Cardinal opened wide his eyes, which had been half-closed in meditation, and with a somewhat sad smile, made a deprecatory gesture at the thought. Father Dow, who delivered the address of the evening, made a speech which was replete with brilliant witticisms and en tertaining to the clergymen upon the' stage as well as to those in the body of the hall. Several allusions in his address called lortn marked signs of pleasure from the Cardinal and Archbishop Martinelli, and at the close, Father Rooker arose and spoke for the Cardinal, who made no remarks himself. i CHOCTAND BUR NED TO DEATH.

Coudert of tne Venezuelan Com mission returned this morning aftei nearly three months' abroad, in Paris, in Holland, at The Hague and several weeks at Hamburg, Germany. Coudert's trip was made partly for recreation, but mainly in connection with his duties relative to the Venezuelan matter. In this connec tion Mr. Coudert said : "I see by the newspapers that they have completely settled the Venezuelan com plications, and I know every man on the commission would be satisfied if they had been arranged in a manner satisfactory to all parties, but I regret to say that such ii not the case. "Professor Burr of Cornell has been ex amining all the records in this controversy and has spent two or three months in Holland.

SAN FRANCISCO, MONDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 5, 1896. dR. BRYAN TAKES HIS STAND AND BLOCKS THE WAY OF AMERICAN LABOR. DIED IN FETTERS HE HAD LOCKED Horrible Fate of a Hermit in the Agonies of Rabies. Chained Himself to a Post When He Felt the. Approach of Madness. HELD CAPriVE BY A PADLOCK. Threw the Key Away That He Might Not Escape to Injure Others. CLEVELAND, Ohio, Oct. 4.— Details of a gruesome tragedy in the little town of Hinkley, in Melina County, on Saturday have been received here. Nearly twenty years ago there appeared in Hinkley a stranger of whom notbing was known but his name, which wds Bernard Sherman. The inquisitive country folk, after a year or more of curiosity, left the man undis turbed in the solitude of a decrepit old hovel which he had ren'ed in the lone some outskirts of the hamlet. The hut gradually became surrounded by an air of mystery. The dweller rarely visited the village and then only for the necessaries of life, which he seemed to have plenty of money to pay for. One night in the early part of last week several boys were silently passing the place when they were terrified by pro longed and blood-curdling human ravings. The old man was never again seen alive. Afraid of tbe scoffs of the incredulous the boys held their silence, but the deserted appearance of tbe old bnt finally attracted attention and an investigation was started. There was only one room in the house, and when the door was broken in the old man. was found lying dead, chained to a uost with a locked chain. The condition of the bouy told of a death struggle most horrible and the doctors ascribed death to hydrophobia. Just outside the hovel was found the body of a bie St. Bernard dog, the sole companion of the recluse, the beast's death having been caused by an ax-wound in the head. The supposition is that the brute went mad and bit bis master. The old man, realizing that death was inevitable, had locked himself in when he felt the madness coming on, chained himself, locked his fetters with a padlock and threw the Key away. Buried under the floor of the hovel was found $i 3,000 ip gold. There was nothing that could shed light on the mystery of his life. In one pocket was found an ocean steamer check from Liverpool dated November 9, 1874, and on the wall hung an oil miniature of a woman and a child. The body was given decent burial. TYNAN STILL IN PRISON. Unfounded Rumor of His Release— Haines and Kearney Reported Expelled From Holland. LONDON, Eng., Oct. 4.— The United As sociated Presses is in a position to state that the report circulated last night by Reuters Telegraph Company that Patrick J. Tynan, the alleged dynamiter, had been released by the French authorities and that he was on his way to tbe United States, is absolutely without foundation. The French officials have not yet decided what disposition shall be made of his case. In the meantime the prison at Boulogne sur-Mer, where Tynan is confined, ia closely guarded by armed police. It is believed that nothing will be done in Tynan's case until after the Czar leaves France. ROTTERDAM, Holland, Oct. 4.— The police here refuse to give the slightest in formation regarding the release of Kearney and Haines, the two Americans who were arrested here on the charge of complicity in the Tynan dynamite plot. There is scarcely any doubt that the two men were expelled from the country yes terday, but the police evidently mean to keep secret all the circumstances of their departure. It was stated yesterday that iney had been escorted to the frontier, but it is possible they were placed on board some steamer bound for America. SAFETY PLEDGED TO ARMENIANS Great Powers of Europe Form a Christian Zone. Security of Life and Property Vouchsafed by Their Action. ABDUL HAMID YET PLOTTING The Sultan Orders th° Expulsion of Unemployed Armenians From Bu garia LONDON, Eng., Oct. 4.— The Daily Mail will to-morrow publish a dispatch from Vienna confirming the report that the pow ers have agreed upon a settlement of the Eastern question bonorable to all parties concerned, and amply guaranteeing the future security 01 the Armenians. The dispatch adds that the leading feature of tbe agreement is the formation of a Chris tian Zone, on the basis of the Jewish Pale in Russia, in which security of life and property will be assured the Armenians by ail tbe powers, or some of them, any necessary active operations to be under taken by Great Britain, France and Rus sia, and perhaps Italy. Tbe Daily News will to-morrow publish an interview had by its correspondent in Geneva with Garo ana Hratch, two of tbe leaders ot the Armenian refugees. They give a graphic description of the recent outbreak in Constantinople, and declare that the revolutionary committee would wait for perhaps a month to see whether the powers would act; if they did not, the committee would again write to the em bassies asking whether they would keep their promises. They professed to have no knowledge of the precise lines of the next upheaval, if such action was neces sary, but sai'i that it would be terrible. They repudiated any animosity against the Turkish nation, saying that they warred only against the Government. When it was proposed last August to set fire to Constantinople they had nesatived the proposal because it would have been cruel. They bad supported the plan to attack the Imperial Ottoman Bank in preference to doing anything that would cause suffer iner to the residents of Con stantinople. They added that they would not hesitate to kill soldiers and policemen, but would not injure peaceable people. Tbe Government ,they significantly said, might reflect on the scheme for burning Constantinople; that it might|bave been more easily effected than the attack on tbe bank. The Constantinople correspondent of the Chronicle telegraphs that the Ottoman Bank and the representative of the Credit Lvonnaise are sending away large quanti ties of securities. It is stated that the latter forwarded 1,000,000 francs worth of securities to Paris a few days aeo. • ARMENIAN USURERS BLAMED.
