DR. MeGLYNN on THE POPE.
lie Advises the People Not to Lllteu
to Corrlgan’s Flatten-y.
New YORK, Oct. 12.—The Rev. Dr. Mc-
Glynn opened his winter series of Sunday
night lectures at (Cooper union tonight, by
a talk on the pope. He said:
, “The time may come when we will have
a democratic pope, who will walk down
Broadway with a stovepipe_ hat on. Per
sonally I have been emancxpated. I had.
diplomatic relations with the pope and am
consequently competent to give unpreju—
diced advice. I advised the pope: not to
listen to the flattery of such men as Arch
bishoE Corrigan, who, while assuring him
that e was the greatest pope who ever
lived, was getting ready to assure the next
one that he was greater than all predeces
sors. In the language of New Yorkers
such flattery was ‘talfy.’ ”
He conuniserated the pope on his ap—
proaching senility, an]. wound up by say—
mg:
“Holy father, I am ashamed of you.”
An Awful Death in Tacoma.
Special to the TRIBUNE.
TACOMA, Oct. 12.—Death came to Edward
H. Curran in a most violent and horrible
manner early yesterday morning in the
electric light department of the Tacoma
Light and Water company’s plant while
Curran was busily engaged at his post of
duty. When life had been aged out of his
body, it was a revolting sig t to behold.
Nearly every bone had been broken and
the body literally lay in sections. Ill—had
made t e circuit of an immense wheel
among the vast machinery just once and a
third and in doing so was squeezed through
a space hardly suliicient for an object one
third the size of the body, so that life was
fairly squeezed out of the man.
AGAINST REVISION
I
A STRONG SERMON RELATIVE TO
THE TRUTH OF THE BIBLE.
Can we Accept Part of the Bible as
'l‘rue'and Reject the Rest?
PRINCETON, N. J., Oct. 12. Rev. Dr.
Greene, senior professor of theology semi-1
nary and moderator of the last general as
sembly, who is, perhaps, the most pro
found biblical student opposed to a revis
ion of the confession of faith, preached
yesterday before the college students, and ‘
in the course of his sermon, after review-l
ing his well known argument for verbal in- ‘
spiration for the Scriptures, said: “The:
question is as to the general trustworthi—i
ness of the Bible. Can we accept the Old l
Testament at all, if it is full of false state- ‘
ments in historical fact which are not inci
dental but essential. Is the Bible stories,
miracles or emanations of the heated orien—
tal brains of the prophets, who were the di
rectors of the people? If human history
contained in the Bible is untrue, can we ac
cept as true statements for which it is
only authority concerning God. This 'is
the question for which we are lighting, not
as to mere verbal inaccuracy but as to the
broad truthfulness and trustworthiness of
the. Bible against destructive cliticism
which throws wide, open the gate which
wlouldylend us down to self seeking ration
a ism. ’ ~

» I’ERILOUh‘ TIMES.
New YORK, Oct. 12.—This is the season
of cyclones, and life afloat is attended with
peril and physical discomfort. ’The Alaska
is a day overdue and has not been heard
from, and the Augusta Victoria was not
sighted till early this morning. The Um
bria, one of the best storm defiers of the
Cunard line was due Igesterday morning,
but was not sighted 0 Sandy Hook until
last night. Two steamers met a number of
cyclones. The Augusta. Victoria arrived
at her dock shortly before noon and her of
ficers reported that from October 4th to the
9th she experienced heavy westerly gales,
with tremendously high seas. The steamer
sustained no great amage, but several
passengers were thrown down and sveral
of them had their arms or legs broked, and
eight or more were severely out about the .
head. The Umbria also reported i
bad weather. The steamer sustained nOl
damage, but a few of the passengers were ‘
injured. During the greater part of the
trip of the Augusta Victoria not a passen—
ger was allowed on deck. During the
whole voyage her Commander never sle t.'
He was on the bridge day and ni§ht, amipit
was the unanimous verdict of all on board
that to his wonderful seamanship and skill
in handling the great vessel, is due the
safety of the ship and passengers. During
four days her decks were under water most
of the time. The seas were like mountains
and the big vessel pitched and plunged vio
lently with every shock.

TOWNS SHOOK UP.
ANOTHER SERIOUS EARTHQUAKE
IN CALIFORNIA.
A Fever of Excitement at anfl and
Other Places In the
Slate.
I’m'ALUMA, Cal., Oct. 12.—The heaviest
earthquake shock since 1808 was experi
enced here last night. The shock was pre
ceded by a light one and after it came six
or seven other shocks, the last one about
so’clock this morning. The main shock
lasted fully nine seconds.
SANTA Ross, (33.1., Oct. 12.—The severest
earthquake shock was felt here in four
years. It occurred last night at 10:32
o’clock. The ostfillations were north and
south and lasted 4.5 seconds. A slight trem
bling was perceptible three or four min
utes.
NAPA, Cal., Oct. 12.—The earthquake dur
ing last night set Napa county into a. fever
of excitement. The first shock came at
9:16, but at its hight, at 10:29, came ahenvy
shock which lasted” 46 seconds. Itwasa
twisting motion from right to left. Many
people ran into a street in fright, some
fainted and all were greatly exercised, but
no fatalities are rerorted. Lighter shocks
followed during tle entire night. Some
say there were twelve shocks. while others
profess to have counted as high as seven»
teen. Some peo‘iyle remained in the street
all night. The amage is not very heavy
on any one building, but in the aggregate
is considerable. Scores of chimneys were
thrown down or turned three-fourths
around. Many brick buildings were badly
cracked and the wall decorations in most
of the fine houses are badly damaged. The
insane asylum reports some damage to the
walls and towers, but nothing serious.
A Lesson in Manuel's.
New York Sun: A well-dressed gentle
man who sat in a box at the Columbia
theater on Saturday night went out be-
tween the acts to smoke a cigar in the
lobby of the theater. An overdressed
youn§l men of 19 years, takill% a cigarette
from is‘Pocket, asked the gent eman for a
light. \ hen the gentleman handed him
his match box the young man remarked,
with acertum lack of polish in his man—
ner: ‘
“What’s the matter with lending me your
cigar?”
“I never let any one handle mv cigar,”
retorted the gentleman, “but here is a
match if you like.”
“Oh. you go to the devil; you’re too
stuck on yourself,” was the cigarette smok
er’s repartee.
This ended the interchange of civilities,
and the genlcman with the, cigar sent the
young man with the cigarette spinning to
ward the gutter. There was some applause
by the by-standers as the youngnian started
for Captain Westervelt’s police station *in
East One Hundred and Twenty-sixth
street to Complain of the treatment he had
received. A detective, who went around
to the theater to investigate, reported
back to the captain that the cigar smoker
was really the aggrieved party, and that,
his treatment of the cigarette young man 1
was justifiable.
Extend the Railroad Track.
Complaint is made by many ladies, as
well as gentlemen, who patronize the street
railway “system.” on Main street, that
they are compelled to alight in the mind at
the southern end of the route, at the cor
ner of Main and Thirteenth streets. The
track does not come within fifty feet of the
sidewalk at Thirteenth street, and with
very little expense could be extended to it,
if the owners were disposed to be accom
modating. This is not "another kick of
Tna TRIBUNE against ‘the system.’ ” It is
‘ made at the requ‘iest of the passengers who
have some rig ts which “the system”
’ should recognize.
Lost Her Thumb.
A sad accident occurred yesterday at
South Union. Four little girls, belonging
to C. M. Lisk, were playing on the wood—
shed, when one of them but three years of
age took the axe. and began to chop on the
wood block. The youngest of the child
ren, a little girl but 18 months old, ven
tured too near the block, and as the axe
descended, it chopped olf the child’s
thumb and left the fore-linger hanging.
The child was brought to the oifices of Dr.
Riley and Newcomb, when it was cared for.
The little girl who did the chopping was
t‘rightehed almoet into h ysterics. She ran
away and hid in the garden, and was not
seen until evening, when her little sister
was brought home from the doctor.

governments with a view on the part'of
Germany to secure continued free admis

turn for certain concessions of customs
duty to be extended by Germany to Amer—
ican products of various descriptions. It

are still uncompleted. The stage of pro
gress is that there are good prospects being
brought of a satisfactory conclusion before
the first of next January, when the presi

clanmtion imposing duties conditional

upon all sugars imported from any coun
try, thun 1s imposed duties upon agricul—
