VVirif fcOLBMN CEREMONIES, The Laying of the Corner Stone ei the Sis. tars' New Sanitarium, Yesterday ArUrnoea. An Immense crowd was gathered at tbe sanitarium grounds, In the northern part of the city, yesterday afternoon, to witness tbe solemn ceremonies of laying thaoorner stone of that niagnlBoent structure. Promptly at S o'clock, tbe long procession wound its way from the opera house cor ner out to tbe grounds. In line were the various orders of , the Catholio churches, having hundreds in line, the Laa Vegas military band, Are departments of tba two towns, city officials of But Las Vegas, representatives of severe! Of tbe fraternal orders, tbe distinguished churchman who bad charge of tbe ceremonies, His Graoe, Archbishop Chapelle,accompanied by sev eral other reverend gentlemen In a car riages and bringing up the rear were many citizens In carriages and on horse back, On arriving at the grounds, which al ready seemed one vast sea of umbrellas, a roadway was finally cleared to tbe covered platform, where tbe speakers of tbe occa sion were) sheltered from - tbe excessive beat of tba sun, and where tbe choir was stationed. Here the program as announced in Saturday's OPTKJ was carried out with the exception of tbe address by Rev. Nor man Skinner, who refused to take part Jin the proceedings, on Sunday, and ' an ad dress by Fr. O'Keefe, who did not speak, on acoount of tbe length of the program and the extreme beat from which the im mense crowd was undoubtedly suffering. Tbe program was opened by musio by tbe cbolr, which was oomposed of Mrs. Hernandez, Mrs. Cod) , Misses Cochran and Volmer, and J. J. Cluxton E. H. Nor ton, and J. M. Cluxton, with Mrs. Seneoal at the organ and it is needless to add that their selections were rendered splendidly. Chief Justice Tbos. Smith then followed In a ten-minutes' speech, In which he hap pily congratulated tbe city and tbe noble Sisters on tbe erection of tbe handsome edlfloe. Tbe military band then rendered an ap propriate selection, which, considering the number of players who were absent, was handled very well. - Father Grotn then addressed the assem bled throng in Spanish, and he was listen ed to with deep attention by all those so fortunate as to understand that language, Following Father Grom was a selection by the choir, after which Rabbi L. Scbrei ber presented an eloquent address on the beauties of Christian charity and the love that makes the whole world akin. After Rev. Schreiber's address, the band which was stationed on tbe platform near tbe corner-stone, was requested to play another selection, while the preparations were made for the ceremonies at the stone, but from some one's mismanagement they were crowded off the platform before they bad completed their selection, and they formed in line as they dropped off and marched to town, rather offended at tbeir treatment. The solemn consecration ceremonies over tbe corner-stone was then conducted by Archbishop Chapelie with the ritual of the Catholic church. After another, selection ' by tbe cbolr, Archbishop Chapelie made a powerful ad dress, first reading a text suitable to the occasion. He dwelt particularly on the splendid addresses' made by Chief Justice Smith and Rabbi Scbreiber. wbo, be said, raised high bis hopes for that universal brotherhood wbich be so longed to see ex isting in all its spiritual beauty between man and man and tbe churches of God. At 6:20 the exercises were ended, and another epoch in tbe history of good ac complished by tbe noble Sisters may be said to bave commenced.

Bad Freight Wreck. - At 6:30, this morning, freight train No. 86, going south, in charge of Conductor Upton Hays, with Brakemen Bwyer and Wilkison, went into the ditch about one mile east of Galisteo. . Fortunately,-" no one was hurt, although the first report this morniDg gave one man killed. Engine 716, with Engineer Seellnger , and F'rc Buck, was pulling a long train of forty cars, mostly empties, at a li vely rate.when a brakebeam on the third oar from tbe en gine broke and tbe fun commenced, there being piled up and turned: over fourteen out of the forty cars, when the train finally stopped. ' Tbe wrecking crew was oalled out and left at 6 o'clock, in charge of Roadmaster Dan Elliott and' Trainmaster: T. G. Mul hern, and a side-track was built around the wreck at once, being completed by 11 o'clock, so that traffio was not delayed to any great extent. Considering tbe damage done, the,' fact that no one was hurt is a matter of agree able surprise to railroad men. Burglars In the City.
