Interrupted by the Crowd.
frecial to Tiik Monxixa Call.
Dublin, Oct. 11.— The remains of Charles
Stewart Parnell arrived at Kingstown this
morning. After leaving London there
were no demonstrations along the railway
route until Cheater was reached. Here
large deputations from Liverpool, Manches
ter, Preston, Newcastle-on-Tyne, ami other
places joined the train. Mr. Parnell's col
leagues in Parliament extended greetings to
the various deputations. The funeral train
reached Holyhead about 2 o'clock. It was
a typical British October morning— dark,
dismal, wet, cold and' hazy. Notwithstand
ing the unfavorable svrrcunding?, eager
groups of people had collected on the quay
to watch the transference of the coffin from
the train to the mail boat. The case in
which the coffin had teen placed was borne
upon the shoulders of seamen to the
steamer. The Parnellites followed next he
hind. Sobs were distinctly audible as the
procession filed down the double gangway
to the ship. The coffin was deposited in au
inclosure specially fitted up for its recep
tion, and here the faithful followers of the
dead chief kept watch throughout the voy
age across the channel, relieving one an
other at regularly slated intervals. Among
those who kept guard were the Lord Mayor
of Dublin. High Sheriff Meade and Mr.
Parnell, brother of deceased.
OS IRISH soil.
The journey across was eventless, the
boat making the passage in a gale of wind
and through torrents of rain. At Kings
town a crowd had collected to receive the
remains on Irish soil. Conspicuous among
those present were the following: Kichard
Power, Mr. Joseph E. Kenny, T. Lawrence
Carew, .lames J. Dalton, T. Rochfort -Ma
guire, John J. Clancy. William J. Corbet,
Colonel John P. Nolan and Patrick O'Brien.
These, with members ct the House of Com
mons, who followed the body from London,
and the Kingstown delegation, comprised
nearly all the Parliamentary adherents of
Mr. Parnell. All gathered around the coffin
in absolute silence, which was unbroken
even by the exchange of friendly greetings
until after the transference of the body to
the railway carriage.
AT DUBLIN' STATION.
The short distance was soon made, the
train arriving at Dublin Station at 7:30
o'clock. A vast but silent crowd, with un
covered heads, awaited the train as it rolled
Into the station. Timothy Harrington,
member of Parliament for Dublin Harbor.
and Dr. Hackett, who attended Parnell
when his eyes were Injured in Kilkenny, as
well as other notabilities, here joined the
swelling funeral procession. Conspicuous
in front of the dense mass of people were
the members of the Gaelic Athletic
Association, with the hurlers used
in their sports all draped with
black crape caught up with green ribbon.
Tne representatives of the different
branches of the league wore black badges,
upon which were printed the dying words
of the statesman: '"Give my love to my
colleagues and the Irish nation." While
lieiiie moved from the train the ceffin was
lilted into the hearse. Floral tributes liter
ally covered the tup of the hearSe and were
pliid around tho coffin. These, after they
Had teen put aside, were eagerly _'4
upon by the crowd, broken into small
pieces at-d kept as mementoes of the sad
occasion. As the hearse moved from the
station a body of police lormed in front of
the procession. The band if the Working
men's Union followed directly behind the
police escort and played the Dead March
in "Saul." Then came the Gaelic Athletic
Association with hurlers reversed, re
sembling a military body at "reversed
arm-." As the march progressed the crowd
VIEWED BY THE PUBLIC.
The City Ball was soon reached. Its
front was covered with solemn draperies.
A violent rain-storm streamed down as the
coffin was borne into the hall. At 10 o'clock
the gates weie opened, and instantly the
people poured into the hall. The body lay
in stale in the council chamber. Photo
graphs were taken, and then the public was
admitted, and shown the coffin, which was
placed at the Dase of the Council statue,
and on either side iv bold relief were
•tattles of Grattan and Lucas. Conspicuous
on the 0: ffio were three wreaths from Mrs.
Parnell, across, anchor and circle, with in
scriptions: "My own true love; best and
truest friend; my husband; from his
broken-hearted wife." Inside of this in
scription was the following: "My dear
*.■■*, my hu-baud ; from his heart-broken
wife," and still within this was:, "My dear
love; my husband: my king; from his
heart-broken wife." There was also two
lovely little wreaths from Mrs. Parnell's
two daughters, witn the word-. : "From
little Clare and little Fittie, to our dear
mother's husband." From 10 o'clock in the
morning till 2 o'clock in the afternoon a
continuous stream of people poured Into the
hall. It is estimated that 40,000 persons
paid their respects to the Illustrious de id.
Neatly all wore deep mourning, the men
with a baud of black crape interwoven with
green ribbon around the arm. Despite ttie
drenching rain, a large proportion of tho
mourners were women.
A SAD PBOCESSIOX.
At a quarter to 3 o'clock the procession
started, led by the Executive of the Leader
ship Committee. Following came the bier,
drawn by six coal black horses, surrounded
by the Parliamentary colleagues of Mr.
Parnell. As the coffin passed, almost hid
den in flowers, every head in the vast as
semblage was uncovered. Parnell's iavos
lte horses followed the bier. Then came a
strong body of the Clan-na-G?.el, headed by
James Stephens and John O'Leary. Promi
nent among the individual members of the
procession was John O'Connor, leading by
the arm a blind member named McDonald.
Then came carriages containing Mrs. Dick
inson, sister of Parnell, Parnell's brother
and sister and other near friends. The Lord
Mayor in state, preceded by the City Mar
shal and sword and mace-bearers, «ai next
behind the family carriages. Then fol
lowed representatives of the corporations
of the principal Irish towns, various trade
societies. Foresters, home rulers, private car
riages and citizens on foot. Just as the
procession started the rain ceased. The scene
was most impressive. All the windows and
the housetops along the line of march were
packed with people.
AT THE CEMETERY.
The procession surpassed In point of num
bers anything of the kind ever witnessed in
Dublin. Throughout the long route ad
mirable order win kept till the cortege came
near Giasncvio, where the people began
gathering iv the cemetery early in the morn
ing, facing the. wind and drenching showers.
During the long waiting throughout the day
the crowd inspected the turf-lined tomb,
guarded by a single group of police, who had
difficulty to keep them moving. The grave,
which was seven feet deep, had been part
of an artificial mound covering the plat,
which had long been used to inter the poorest
people. By 4 o'clock the police became
overwhelmed by the ever-increasing crowd,
and by the withdrawal of a portion of their
force, who went to clear the way for the
funeral at the entrance gates to the ceme
tery. When the first part of the procession
reached the lower gat- at 5 o'clock, it was
found impossible to penetrate the dense
masses. In the struggle with the on-look
ers the police writ- obliged to abandon the
attempt to drive them back. The surging
crowd around the gate seeking to see the
cortege met the great contending wave of
Others trying to enter. A scene of great
confusion ensued. The procession for a
The Morning Call.
time was checked and thrown into disarray.
It was decided to close the lower gates, and
this was effected amid great disorder just as
the hearse reached the spot.
ABOUND THE GRAVE.
The hearse was then taken to a platform
especially constructed for the purpose, in
order to enable those in the procession to
file around and have a full view of the bier.
At 6 o'clock the fast-falling dusk found the
procession still filing past. There seemed
to be no likelihood that the stream of march
ers would end till far into the night. So
orders were given to remove the coffin to the
side of the grave. The body of Clan-na-
Gael's succeeded in clearing a way to the
grave, and formed a circle, within which
were grouped the .Lord Mayor of Dublin,
civic dignitaries, Parnell's colleagues In
Parliament and relatives. The crush was
terrible. Darkness had set in, and the
noise of shrieking women, cries of children
and cries of men, struggling amid the crush,
made inaudible the voices of the clergy re
citing the ritual of the Church of England.
The first portion of the service had been
celebrated at St. N'cholas Church, where
the remains rested twenty minutes while on
the way from the City Hall. Atth. grave
Rev. Mr. Vincent of Rotunda Chapel and
Lev. George Fry of Manchester officiated.
They were obliged to rut the services short,
as the crowd broke into the protecting circle
and overwhelmed th*> inner group.
Some time after, in dead darknes**, when
the crowd had thinned away, the more in
timate friends again grouped themselves
around the grave, deposited wreaths thereon
and took a last view of the coffin. The
grave became heaped ud with masses of
floral tributes, one of which was Miss
O'-Shea's. [Overlooked in the description
given above.] Apart from the disorder at
the cemetery, the day was without accident.
Probably never anywhere was so great a
popular demonstration attended by so little
excitement. Most of tho public-houses re
mained closed throughout the day out of
respect to the dead. The police, unfailingly
obtrusive in Irish public gatherings, were
to-day conspicuously abi-eut. To-night
(Sunday) quietness prevails.
London, Oct. 12.— Various estimates have
been made as to the number of persons who
witnessed the demonstration. The Daily
News this morning placed it at 200,000.
Hourly dispatches were sent to Mrs. Par
nell at Brighton describing the scenes at
Dublin. She is still prostrated.
The Chronicle says the demonstration
was "spontaneous and Irresistible, surging
from all parts of Ireland to Glasneviu.
The mighty wave would have swept away
any harrier the police or politicians could
have put up to stop it."
The Times this morning, referring to Par
nell's funeral, attributes the "magnitude
and Impressiveness of the scene to the fact
that the Irish masses are passionately fond
of pageantry in every shape, ami especially
when it combines political excitement with
au appeal to sentiment."
A LEAGUE MANIFESTO.
The National League of Great Britain has
Issued a lengthy manifesto detailing what
the league has done for the cause of Ireland,
reciting the result of Parnell's leadership,
and urging that the fiuht for the principles
advocated by the dei-eased lender be kept up.
Paris. Oct. 11.— The Irish Extremists resi
dent in Paris had a meeting to-day In mem
ory of Parnell. Resolutions of regret at the
loss Ireland has sustained were passed.
His Restoration to Favor at the Berlin Court
Berlin, Oct. 11.— Frequenters of Mme.
Wesendonk's salon, where a plot to over
throw Count Waldersee is said to have been
planned, are agitated by a report, ap
parently well founded, that he and his wife
are about to be restored to favor at the
Berlin court. The return of Count Walder
see does not excite much apprehension or
opposition, for he is universally recognized
as a most capable ifficer and tint
ed administrator of military affairs.
But the prospective reappearance of
the Connte-s, with her strong influ
ence over the Emperor, is generally
feared. Tne hope is that should she regain
her former power at court, she will aban
don her intriguing to get the Chancellor's
place for her husband. At all events, it is
pretty certain that toe present Chief-Gen
eral of Staff must go, is tho Euiueror bus
decided that he is a meddler. Waldersee
would then be the only safe man for the
Emoeror to turn ti.

A Sunday Morning Fight Between St. Paul
and Chicago Pugilists.
Chicago. Oct. IL— Light cars filled with
excursionists made the journey on the Wis
consin Central to a convenient spot, and
there witnessed a prize-fight this morning. .
The contest was managed by Louis Hotis
-111 an n, and the principals were Pat Killen
of St. Paul ai.d Bob Fergeson of Chicago,
the former weighing 195 oouuds and the lat
-108. Both were in tne pink of condition,
and the fight, while it lasted, was fur blood.
Stakes were driven on the turf and ropes
stretched at daybreak. Marquis of Quee ns
berry rules governed the fight, and the
gloves used were frail affairs.
Time was called about 8 o'clock, and the
men proceeded to do battle. Killen, after
sparring a couple of minutes, landed heavily
on Ferguson's ribs,' and the latter returned
the compliment with a terrific punch on
lion's nose, and thus the fighting contin
ued until the end of the sixth round, when
Killen, with several upper cuts and straight
right-banders, finished his man. The feat
ure of the fight was the continuous fouling
by Killen, who seemed determined to do his
man by fair means or "foul," his tactics be
ing butting, choking and elbow work. Fer
guson, seeing what his man was up to,
commenced delivering severe body-blows
whenever the men clinched, but as both
men persisted in this unfair work the ref
eree permitted the light to go on. It may be
characterized as a slogging match, with Kil
len as the more scientific and Ferguson the
harder hitter. Killen was awaided the
fight, and wins the heavy-weight champion
ship of the Northwest, a SIOOO purse aud
three-quarters of the gate receipts.

and Hanlon Will Be Accepted.

of an Early Race.
fractal to The Morni."**i C.ir.r*
Seattle, Oct. 11.— William O'Connor,
the oarsman, to-night received a dispatch
from Sydney, saying that Stansbury had left
for Sau Francisco, accompanied by Beach.
O'Connor is of the opinion that Stansbury
is coming here in response to a challenge
made by him and Hanian two months ago
two row agalust Stansbury and any other
oarsman in the world in three races, one a
double scull for the championship of the
world, which is now held by O'Connor and
Haulan, and the other two being single,
O'Connor to row against Stansbury for th c
world's championship, and Hanian to row
O'Connor is very anxious to have another
go at Stansbury for the championship of
the world, and says; he will give the Aus
tralian his own terms. "I am only too
glad to hear that Stansbury is coming,"
said O'Connor to-night, "and 1 think he
should give me another chance for the
championship. If he does it will be the
first time In the history of aquatics that a
race for the world's championship has
been rowed in American waters. Hanian
.went 1 1 England to win the championship,
and then went to Australia to lose it. I
have gone to England and Australia to try
fur it; now let the Australians reciprocate
and give us a chance to win it back."
O'Connor is of the opinion that Teenier
will row with Stansbury if a double race is
arranged, as Beach' i- out of active work,
and will probably come only as Stansbury's
manager. O'Connor is so confident of get
ting a race that he will leave for San Fran
cisco to-morrow, and will make arrange
ments for having Stansbury met there on his
arrival by Haulan while he goes East to
have new boats made. He is willing to row
a race at San Francisco within two mouths
if Stansbury so desires.

place last night at a resort on the Riverside
road near here. The iprioclpals were Bill

equal in weight. It was a ferocious affair
from the start.
Hall proved stronger than Hatch and
beat him terribly. In the eighth round ho
gave Hatch a sledge-hammer blow on the
neck which felled him like an ox, and in
falling Hatch took the ropes and stakes
with him. Hatch managed to recover In
time to prevent being counted out. Then
the butchery was resinned and lasted until
ih>- nineteenth round, when Hirt -h "was com
pletely exhausted and succumbed.

FAST OF YOM KIPPUR.
The Host Sacred Festival of the
Hebrews throughout the world are cele
brating to-day the festival of Yoni Kippur,
or day of atonement, the most solemn
known to the Israelite church. The sacred
celebration began at sundown last night
and will end at sundown to-night.
In every synagogue and temple of He
brew worshiping in this city the festival was
appropriately observed last evening, begin
ning shortly after C o'clock Snd continuing
for over an hour.
Last evening's services consisted in the
chanting of the most sacred prayer known
to the Hebrew faith, called the Kol-Nidre.
In the uiorti orthodox churches the prayer
was chanted by the entire congregation, but
in the Sheritn Israel Synagogue and the
Emann-Kl Temple it was elaborately ren
dered by a choir with magnificent music.
'1 he Day of Atonement in the Hebrew
church began yesterday as a day of uni
versal feasting, but with the hour of 'sunset
last 11 in lit a fast was Inaugurated that will
be leliglously observed by every child of
Israel until sunset to-night. No food or
drink of any description must be partaken
of to-day, and all the cares and worries of
business must be laid aside and prayer and
song substituted instead.
There is a wild and weird melody in the
Ko'-iNldre, hallowed by the remembrance
that the same mournful song rose on the
desert air thousands of years ago, when the
Hebrew was a slave toiling under the lash of
his Egyptian task-master. The Kol-Nidre
Is a prayer for absolution from false vows
taken uiidet duress, and had Its origin in
the middle ages when the Jews were tor
tured to death as the alternative of a re
nunciation of their faith.
At the Synagogue Shaarey Zedeh, corner
of Stockton and California streets, the day
was observed in the usual manner. The old
orthodox custom of chanting prayers in He
brew was conducted by Rabbi Goldstein,
assisted by Rabbis Solomon and Levy. The
observances of the Atonement will be con
tinued to-day, commencing nt 5 o'clock in

A WELL-KNOWN SCIENTIST.
Arrival of Dr. Conn of the Smithsonian
Dr. Elliott Coves, a man who stands ex
ceptionally high in the scientific world, ar
rived in this city yesterday, and is stopping
at the Occidental. Dr. Cones has been con
nected with the Smithsonian Institution for
over a quarter of a century as collaborator
in the department of natural history, which
he has made the study of his life. He acted
in company with Agassiz while the latter
was connected with the Institution. For
the last eight years Dr. Cones has been one
of the corps of experts of the Century Dic
tionary, which he announces as having been
just completed! He had charge of the de

tories of the West, and made collections In
the field, his specimens being presented to
the United States Government, and now
may be found In National Museum.
Dr. Coves is visiting the Pacific in order
to regain his health, which was somewhat
shattered by his incessant labors iv connec

AN OLD-TIME SHAKE.
The Severest Shock of Many
Buildings Trembled and People Frightened
From Their Rooms— Clocks Stopped at the
Ferry— Guests Alarmed.
At 10:28 o'clock last night those of San
Francisco's citizens who chanced to bo
awake stopped to see what would be next,
and those ho were asleep awoke to await
MOST BITERS IN TEARS.
The cause was an earthquake which lasted
about twenty .seconds, but which, judging
from the opinions of many residents here,
was tho most severe that has been experi
enced for year:.
After the shock had passed all other
topics for a short tima were dropped, and
nothing but "how it affected me" and •'in
cidents I noticed" were heard on the street
corners and in the down-town resorts where
men do most congregate.
EFFECT ON TALL BUILDINGS.
Crowds of people were noticed studio g
in the streets looking up at the notable tall
buildings, completed and in course of con
struction, speculating as to the effect of the
shock upon them.
Al the Russ House the shock was quite
strong, almost stopping the clock. A num
ber of the guests left their rooms and fled
to the office.
A gentleman who rooms on the second
floor of the Nevada Building, on the corner
of Pine and Montgomery streets, was read
ing when he felt the shock. He did not
realize what it was until he saw the gas-jet
violently oscillating, and then be got out
of the building, nor staid upon the order of
his going. When seen on the street he was
intently watching to see if the structure
were goiLg to cave in.
AT Tilt: OCCIDENTAL.
The night-clerk at the Occidental said the
shock was not very noticeable in the office,
which is on the ground floor, but the shake
was quite severe in the upper stories. Some
of the guests sought the street for safety.
At the Lick House the night-clerk was
reading a paper which was renting on the
desk when the quake make itself felt by
shaking the desk violently to and fro. Quite
a number of guests strolled downstairs,
three steps at a time, just to iuquiro about
trivial matters. -
The guests of the Grand were badly
shaken up, especially as regards their

there was a good deal of commotion. There

minutes the bell-boys on every floor were at
their wit's end trying to keep run of the in

Montgomery-street side, were lined with
heads, the owners if which were trying to
discover the cause ot the disturbance. 4gff_t
TROUBLE IN THE CELLAR.
A gentleman sitting in the office at the
time said : "I felt yes, but did not think
it an earthquake. I thought there must ba
some trouble with the machinery in the cel
lar underneath me."
In the Railroad Saloon on Market street.
just above Montgomery, the shock was
especially severe, all the lights being put
A HOLE IX THE STREET.
The shock was apparently most severe in
the neighborhood of Market and Geary
streets as It was plainly felt in that locality
by pedestrians, while in other localities the
quake was scarcely noticed by people on
the street, and the oscillation caused the
ground to sink on Market street in front of
Brook place, which connects Geary and
Market streets, between Kearny and Du
pont. Tbe cavity thus made necessitated
the placing of a danger signal at that point
In the tall building at Market and Geary
the shock w;*,s in all probability most se
verely felt on account of its altitude. The
chandeliers and electric light rods were vio
lent shaken and the oscillation of the build
ing was very uncomfortable. On tho eighth
floor a quantity of type was pied.
liar-tenders had their attention first
attracted by the clinking of glasses and then
felt the shock themselves.
One of the guests at the Palace, a lady,

Almost a panic was created at the ferry
landing, foot of Market street. When the
shock began every one rushed out of the
building as if bewildered. The big clock in
the tower jumped ahead fifteen minutes and
the two clocks inside the depot stopped.

PROFESSOR DAVIDSON'S VIEWS.
Professor Davidson was at work in his
observatory on Halliday Hill, between
Daguna and Octavia streets and Clay and
Washington streets, when the shock came.
He was computing latitude and longitude at
"I thought at first it was a heavy cart
rumbling outside the observatory, but its
violence increased rapldlv. The first shock
was felt at 10 o'clock, 27 minutes and 32 and
4-10 seconds, exactly, and it ceased just 13
seconds later, at 10:27:43.4.
"The heaviest shocks were in the threa
seconds from 36 to 39, or three seconds after
the first shock was felt.
"What astonished me was that it began
so gently and then increased in violence.
1 here was only one shock, or wave, prop
erly speak, a succession of short, rapid
waves. As near as I could judge from my
position and the motion of mv candle it
came from the east southeast It was the
severest shock I have felt in several years
and yet it did not move the instrument a jot.
It shook tho building quite perceptibly. It
was the fifty-third or fifty-fourth shock I
have felt since my observations here, but I
do not consider it to have been au exces
sively severe one "
The Professor, between squints through
his telescope and observation of a quadrant
said that he had experienced many earth
quakes that were not perceptible at all ex
cept through the movement of the Instru
ment s levels, and again some shocks were
so slight lhat they could be determined only
by the way In which stars appeared to
wobble through the telescope.
Napa, Oct. 11.— The heaviest earthquake
shock ever felt here was experienced at
10:34 o'clock to-night. Chimneys toppled
over and several buildings were badly soat
tered, among them the Masonic Temple,
The people rushed out iuto the streets
greatly frightened, and the whole town is
in commotion. Drug-store fixtures suffered
considerably, bottles being thrown fromtha
Bhelves to the floor and other damage done.
At the State Insane Asylum great excite
ment prevails. The shock was especially
heavy there, and the inmates are almost
uncontrollable. It is reported that ilia
building is cracked and seriously damaged.
StnsUN, Oct. 11. —At 10:29 to-night a heavy
shock of an earthquake shook up this quiet
little city in a frightful manner. The shock
lasted nearly half a minute. It was the
heaviest earthquake known of here for
years. The damage was slight, but tha
fright to the people was extreme.

shock of an earthquake or double shock was

enough to do any damage. Many persons
did not feel it.
