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

Archbishop Chapelle,accompanied by sev

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

Tbe military band then rendered an ap

number of players who were absent, was
handled very well. -
Father Grotn then addressed the assem

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
The solemn consecration ceremonies over
tbe corner-stone was then conducted by
Archbishop Chapelie with the ritual of the
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.

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.
