CLEVELAND IX GEORGIA.;
HE RUNS INTO A RAIN STORM AT
The Reception Programme Greatly In
terfered with in Consequence-A
Hickory Cane from Lookout Moun
tain and an Album of Views Brought
Away as Souvenirs—The Arrival at
Nashville, Oct. 17. —Nashville, this
morning, had something the apiiearaueo of
a city in the throes of an exciting national
convention. Middle Tennessee claimed the
President for its own for a brief half day,
and had sent its representatives in hun
dreds, from all quarters, to do the honors of
entertainment. The streets of the city were
crowded as they never wera before since the
days of “Pap"’,Thomas’ occupancy, and were
decorated from cellar to crest in the richest
conceivable manner. It is not strange that
some enthusiast should have imagined a
Confederate flag among the odd devices, for
no possible combination of the national
colors seems to be missing. Yet a search by
responsible authorities failed to bring to
light anything to which the most devoted
loyalist could object. Mammoth pictures
in every grade of artistic excellence spanned
the thoroughfares or covered the fro nts of
prominent buildings, and banners nomi
nating the guest of tne day for a second
term were as thick as blackberries.
The President and all his party at Belle
Meade were early astir this morning, and
after a leisurely breakfast made their way
to the picturesque little railroad station
upon the place and were waiting with Gen.
Jackson, their host, who wore the badges
and regalia of the grand marshal of the day,
when the special train backed up from
Nashville. Mrs. Vilas, the reported invalid
of yesterday, came aboard smiling pleas
antly, and, with all the others, declared her
self as well as usual. A short run of lifteen
or twenty minutes brought the train to the
fair grounds in the outskirts of the city,
where the passengers alighted amid the
pomp and ceremony of the day's reception.
The Governor and his guard, mounted,
all brilliantly uniformed, and a corps of
marshals, were in attendance. The guests
were placed in carriages, driven within the
fair grounds’ enclosure and to the handsome
dub house of the association, where the
members of the committees, and others con
nected with the reception ceremonials, were
presented to the President.
AT VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY.
At 8:45 o'clock the procession formed and
the march to the city began to the music of
the Presidential salute by the artillery. The
route lay through the fine grounds of Van
derbilt University. The pupils of the insti
tution were drawn up in front of the uni
versity building, and as the President’s car
riage came up they received him with
cheers, in acknowledgment of which he
raised his hat and bowed. Chancellor Gar
land addressed the President, expressing the
pleasure it gave to all connected with the
institution to welcome him. Students
waved their hats and cheered again, and
the march was resumed. As it proceeded
the several divisions of the procession,
consisting of military and civic organiza
tions, benevolent orders, the State, county
and municipal authorities and the city
schools were passed in review, and fell into
their places behind. The principal streets
of the city were traversed, the populace, of
all grades and condition being out on the
sidewalks. When the Maxwell House was
reached Mrs. Cleveland and her escort
alighted and entered the hotel in whose
spacious and beautifully adorned parlors
she held a reception to the ladies of Nash
The President and the procession made its
way to the Capitol where, upon a stand
erected for the purpose, the necessary for
malities took place. Gov. Taylor’s speech
was a brief but eloquent expression of the
hospitality of the city.
Major Kereheval welcomed the Pres
ident so the city, and Col. A. S. Colyar
also delivered an address of welcome.
He said "he became President at a time when
a vicious policy had impaired and greatly
lessened the efficiency of civil service—the
very life of good government. With cour
age and intelligence he under
took the perilous work of re
form, and our enlightened people, if
he succeeded, as his efforts so far indicate,
will honor his name for saving the ship
from its greatest peril. When he entered
on the duties of his high oflice estrange
ment of the sections of our common coun
try, growing out of the errors of the past,
hung over us as an inheritance of the war.
Himself standing as representative of all
sections, the people have reflected back his
wisdom, and to-day our mottoes—tne na
tional flag, the union of alt States—find a
readj’ response in every home of the
South. 1 trust the plaudifk of the people
a id honors which they in their majesty are
showering upon the man who had the
patriotic courage to say, “Office or no office
hereafter, I will do my duty,” will be a
lesson for ambitious men to study as long as
the republic shall last. I now introduce the
To these President replied us follows:
1 regret that my stay to-day at the capital of
Tennessee must be necessarily so brief as to
curtail the coveted opportunity to see more at
leisure this handsome city and its hospitable
people. Nashville s beautiful location, tne fee
i lllty of its surrounding country aniN he weal! h
of the mineral resources in its immediate
neighborhood, gave early promise of its material
growth and greatness. The variety and per
fection of the agricultural products of your re
gion. your extensive business and your superior
horses and live stock of every description
demonstrate that your advantages have not
been neglected, while your mineral riches,
which hare not been fully developed, assure ad
ditional prospects in the future. Ido not. pro
pose to dwell upon the details of your present
commanding position among tin* cities of the
h"oth. only mentioning that the activity and
enterprise of your people has placed Nashville
among the largest centres of Lrade and mer
chandise south of the Ohio river, and iusomede
partments near the head of all the cities of the

P >l life your cit isenssaw the advantages of educ
t-Uon, refinement and culture, and that as
’he city grew, they became entwined in its

universities, and institutions of learning of every

all. whether white or black,' may fit themseves
for usefulness, and best citizenship may secure
yoor possession to the title you have earned.
1 7 is not an unimportant fact that your city is
’-h" bead quarters, so to speak, of Southern
Methodism and place of the publication and
distribution of its literature. Nash
ville and her vicinity have furnished
two stiisyessful candidates for the Presidency.
I o the grave of Andrew Jackson millions of
Jour countrymen turn with reverent euthu
sissm. and you arc fort'unate in numbering
among your residents the loved and honored
widow of our eleventh President. You have
also furnished from your neighborhood, l think,

United States Senators, two Speakers of the

mstoiy and K qh sur.ti examples the State of
lennessee and Its capital have been brought
■to relations with the Alteration of the general
,'!o'einment, and may well claim a large share
,:1 Us glory and beneficent results. The
influence of the sentiment engendered by these
relation* and traditions ouicklv won back the
citizens of the State and city to theirold love for
the Union after a sad interruption and restored
them to the brotherhood in which they had
found a noble and honorable career. In years
to conn; 1 am sure nothing but continued and
increasing growth and development await the
people of Tennessee, constantly adding to the
splendor and importance of her capital city.
Upon the conclusion of his address the
President was reconducted to the rotunda
of the Capitol, where ho received the pub
lic. Strong military lines were placed from
the entrance to the exit, to which the peo
ple passed rapidly and with good order
OFF FOR THE DEPOT.
Thousands of people passed through, and
a few minutes before 1” o’clock, when it
was time to depart, a long line still stretched
away, apparently unending. At the Max
well House thousands of ladies were re
ceived In- Mrs. Cleveland and each taken
by the hand until the time of departure cut
the ceremonies short. Mrs. Cleveland and
her escort took carriages and at Vine street
ware joined by the President nffd his party,
and a long procession escorted them to the
train. Here again several thousand people
packed all the adjacent streets and wildly
cheered the party as they passed. Promptly
at 13 o’clock the train pulled out for Chatta
nooga amid the shouts of thousands and the
waving of handkerchiefs. The assemblage,
in numbers, enthusiasm and good humor,
excelled any ever seen in Nashville before.
A STINGING REBUKE.
During the President’s reception while
many poorly dressed people, evidently
farmers and workingmen and women, were
passing before him Mr. Cleveland adminis
tered a stinging rebuke to a number of well
dressed people, who having been presented
had stepped back of him and were mak
ing unkind remarks touching the personal
appearance of those passing along in the
front. Hearing the remarks and laughter
the President said: "These good people are
here out of respect to me. lam not willing
for you to make sport of them. It is not
right.” The laughter and comment ceased.
WE VOTE AS WE MOB.
“Excuse our mob,” said Secretary Ridley,
of Nashville, to the President as the latter
hoarded the special train. “We vote as we
mob.” The occasion was one of most en
thusiastic disorder. The time of departure
was fixed at 11 o’clock, but there was plead
ing for more time and a compromise had
been made upon 13 o’clock. Mrs. Cleveland
arrived at the train twenty minutes before
its time of leaving, and a large multitude
came on foot behind her carriage. The
President came from his reception at the
Capitol ten minutes later, and an irregular
army of people came also with him. The
military kept the masses back for a time, but
manj' had lieen denied the coveted chance for
a close view of the President, and the pres
sure was something enormous. There were
anxious inquiries for the remaining mem
bers of the party, and it was proposed to
pull out and start on ahead of time, for the
endearments of the people were becoming
threatening. The police and military kept
order on one side of the train, hut on the
other the people climbed upon every pro
jection, peering into the windows, cheering
and giving vent to their enthusiasm in the
BROUGHT IN IN STATE.
Dr. Bryant and Mr. Bissell were on time
hut had difficulty in reaching their car.
They were finally brought in in great state
witli the escort of an entire military com
pany. The pilot train pulled out at once
and the special followed with but a few
minutes interval, the crowds breaking and
following as long as they could keep up by
running. The members of the President’s
party, without exception, brought away
from Nashville happy memories of the hos
pitable city. Not only had the citizens
made elaborate preparations for the public
welcome to the President, but an especial
entertainment of one kind or another
seemed to have been provided for each one
of his followers. Mrs. Cleveland’s car was
half filled with beautiful bouquets by friends
she had never seen before. The last moment
before the departure a gentleman brought
in and presented, as a more lasting memento
of her visit, ia costly lap-robe, artistically
embroidered and lettered, “To President
and Mrs. Cleveland.” The run from Nash
ville to Chattanooga was delightful.
Chattanooga. Oct. 17.—Upon arriving
at the Chattanooga Union depot, one of the
largest in the South, the President’s train
was greeted by a mass of humanity that
filled the building to overflowing. As the
train pulled in it was greeted by the boom
ing of cannon and shouting and cheering
from the vast multitude. It was with
difficulty that the police kept order and a
way open from the President’s oar to the
platform. The President and his party were
met by a reception committee. Mayor
Sharp escorted Mr. ami Mrs. Cleveland to
their carriage. The city was thronged with
people, who came from East Tennessee,
North Georgia and North Alabama,
fully 30,000 visitors being in the
city. A drizzling rain set in
about 3 o’clock, and the crowd, fearing that
tlie programme arranged by the committee
could not tie carried out, thronged to the
depot, which was packed with curious
humanity eager to get a glimpse of the
President. The city was profusely decor
ated with bunting and flags, and four large
arches were erected on Main street, sur
mounted with portraits of Mr. and Mrs.
Cleveland and painted mottoes, “All Hail
to the Chief” and ‘ ‘ VVeicomo to the Gate City
of the South.” All along the line of march
private residences were profusely decorated.
The President’s carriage was handsomely
upholstered with satin plush and was drawn
by four cream-colored horses, preceded by
mounted escorts. Notwithstanding the
rain, which fell continuously, the lino of
march arranged was carried out, with the
exception of a visit to the historic heights of
Cameron Hill, from which the Federal
forces during the late war shelled the enemy
on lookout mountain. The visit to that
point, owing to the weather, was abandoned,
much to the regret of the President and
NO STOP AT THE PLATFORM.
A large platform appropriately draped
and arched and bearing patriotic mottoes
had been erected at the court house, where
ic was intended that the Mayor should
formally welcome the President and his
wife, but owing to the lateness of the hour
and the rain this was abandoned. The
drive about, the eitj r was not barren of in
terest. All along the streets the procession,
which was composed of nearly 100
carriages, was greeted with cheers and
shouts of “Hurrah for Grover Cleveland.”
Men and women along the rout e pressed for
ward in the rain to shake hands with the
President, and to every one he graciously
held out his hand, receiving many “God
bless yous" from sincere hearts. When the
party arrived at the depot it was 5:1.7
o’clock, and a dense throng had collected in
and about the depot and car-shed. When
the Presidentapproaehcd the throng opened,
and his way to his car was
made easy amid continual cheering.
Before lie had entered the ear
.‘Speech!” “Speech!” was shouted from
5,000 throats. Owing to the din and confu
sion of many voices, it was impossible for
him to have been heard even if he had at
tempted to speak. Hundreds of jieople
pressed forward to the rear platform of his
car and shook bis Wbnd. One old negro who
has uniformly voted the Democratic ticket
since (the war was hustled over the heads
of the crowd and he held out his hand
saying: “God bless vou. Mars Clevelnn’.
SAVANNAH, GA., TUESDAY, OCTOBER IS, 1887.
you’re my man.” The President shook the
old fellow's hand cordially, The train
moved off as the President was shaking
hands with the enthusiastic crowd, and
then Mrs. Cleveland appeared on the plat
form. From that moment until the train
moved out of sight, the din was deafening,
shout after shout rending the air for “Gro
ver Cleveland. ”
QUITE A LARK.
“I enjoyed it ever so much; it was quite a
lark,” said Mrs. Cleveland to the Associated
Press reporter as the train moved off. One
of the noticeable incidents of the day was
the aopearanoe of Lookout Post No. ”,
Grand Army of the Republic along the line
of inarch cheering the President as he
passed. Mr. and Mi's. Cleveland were
the recipients at their car of a
most unique, and at the same
time beautiful, souvenir in the shape
of a handsome album containing views of
Chattanooga, the battlefields, Missionary
Itidge, Lookout. Mountain, and Chieka
maugua, and other points of interest about
the city. The book was bound in silk plush,
beautifully inscribed, and on the back was
a large chip from a pine tree, taken from
the Chickanmugua. battlefields, in which
was lodged a long piece of Federal shell,
fired in one of the famous battles about
Chattanooga. The souvenir was presented
without any demonstration, and liecauso of
its historic value anil the motive that
prompted it, it was accepted by Mrs. Cleve
land. President Cleveland was also pre
sented with a hickory walking-cane, cut
from the battlefield of Lookout Mountain
by an ex-Confederate soldier. The entire
Chattanooga reception committee accom
panied the President and his party in the
special train to Atlanta, leaving a few min
utes after the President's car. The rain
aud the shortness of time allotted to Chat
tanooga interfered with the reception, yet
the President and his wife expressed grati
fication at the reception accorded them, and
regret that they could not visit Lookout
Mountain and other historic points about
STARTING FOR ATLANTA.
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 17. —The President
and his companions returned to their train
at Chattanooga shaking the rain from their
beavers and overcoats, laughing over their
experience and sympathizing with
the people who had made
such elationite preparations for their
brief demonstration of an hour.
Gov. Taylor and his staff had come from
Nashville on the pilot train to assist in doing
the honors of the occasion and hail prepared
a little procession of their own, which was
to make its way to the court house and
there be in readiness to receive the
President on liis arrival. The
two processions got mixed up in some
way, and in the gathering darkness some
carriages of the President’s party followed
the Governor, while the President, and
Postmaster General were being conveyed
with much pomp away in the rain toward
another quarter of the town. The Governor
seems to have arrived at the rendezvous,
but for some reason not yet explained to
the excursionists, the President's procession
brought up at the station without
ever having visited the court house, where
10,000 people were waiting to see the
pageant. A little later the President’s com
panions, who had been led astray, discovered
their predicament, and, fearing they would
be left behind, on their own hook made
their way to the station.
The decorations of the town were superb,
and the heartiness of the people merited a
better result. At Big Shanty, Ga., Senator
Brown boarded the President’s car for a
moment to pay his respects, and a little later
C. A. Collier, President of the Atlanta Ex

Military were in line. Gov. Gordon and
staff were at the stopping place and
a throng which seemed in the
confused light of the red lights,
to be a veritable ocean of human faces tilled
every street. Deafening cheers greeted the
travelers, who, amid signs of most en
thusiastic welcome, were escorted to the
carriages in waiting and driven to their
quarters at the Kimball House. Military
guarded every foot of the way,and sentinels
were stationed in strong force in the corri
dors of the hotel, through which it was nec
essary for the President to ]iss, preserving
the utmost ordei. Everywhere else, both
in tho hotel and out, however, there was
such a jam as Atlanta has never known.
Gov. Gordon estimates the number of stran
gers in this city to-night at 100,000. The
Presidential party entered their rooms at
once and did not, again make their appear

o’clock to-morrow morning the President
should lie taken out for a ride, but the au
thorities having him in charge delicately
bethought themselves of his comfort, and
have tnado arrangement for his first public
appearauce at a later hour.
When Atlanta got up this morning heavy
and threatening clouds were hanging over
her. About noon it commenced drizzling,
and in the afternoon commenced raining in
good earnest. It is still raining heavily to

When the Presidential party reached here
to-night it was raining heavily. Fully 10,000
jieople were congregated nboul the depot
and along the line of the railroad track from
Whitehall street to Pryor, where they had
been standing since dark, and ail of them
were ns wet as drowned rats. As the train
moved Into the depot a salute was fired from
the Broad street bridge by the Atlanta Ar

A SHAKSPKARE FOUNTAIN
G. W. CHILDS’ GIFT DEDICATED AT
A Large Number of Distinguished Per
sons Present -Henry Irving Makes
the Dedication Speech—A Poem by
Oliver Wendell Holmes and a Letter
from James Russell Lowell Read.
London. Oct. 17. —The Shakespeare me
morial fountain, presented by G. W. Childs,
of Philadelphia, to the town of Stratford
on-Avon, was dedicated with imposing cere
monies to-day. Early trains brought large
numbers of distinguished persons to attend
the dedication. The weather was fine.
There wa“ an immense crowd in attendance,
and much enthusiasm was manifested.
Dr. Maeauley represented Mr. Childs at the
proceedings. Just before noon the invited
guests formed in line and marched
to the towm hall and thence to tho site of
the fountain. Henry Irving made the deiii
cation speech. He said he admired Mr.
Childs’public spirit and energy, which were
worthy of Philadelphia. Ills generous
deeds were widely known, and ho was
ffreatly respected. Mr. Irving concluded
lis address by presenting the memorial in
the name of the donor to the town.
The Mayor read a letter from James Rus
sell Lowell, eulogizing Mr. Childs for his
gift, which deed recalled the fact of the
kitiared blood of the two great nations who
are joint heirs to the work of Shakespeare.
MH. LOWELL’S LETTER.
Following is the letter from James Russell
Lowell, which was read by the Mayor:
1 should more deeply regret my inability to
be present at the interesting ceremonial of Oct.
17, were it not tliat my countrymen will be more
fitly represented there by their accomplished
Minister, Mr. Phelos. The occasion is certainly a
most interesting oiie. The monument which you
accept in behalf of your townsmen com
memorates at once the most marvelous of Eng
lishmen ami the jubilee year of tin* august lady,
whose name is honored wherever the language
is spoken, of which he was the greatest master.
No symbol could more aptly servo this double
purpose than a fountain, for surel.v no poet ever
poured forth so broad a river of speech as he.
whether he was the author of "Novum Or
f'anum" also, or not; nor could the purity of
u*r character and exiuvple be bettor typified
than by the current that shall Him forever’ from
this fountain. It was Washington Irving who
first embodied in his delightful English the
emotion which Stratford on Avon awakens in
the heart, of the pilgrim, and especially of the
American pilgrim who visits it. I am glad to
think that this memorial should bo
the gift of an American and thus serve
to recall the kindred blood of the two
great nations, joint heirs of the same noble
language and of the genius that has given it
cosmopolitan significance. lam glad of it be
cause it is one of the multitudinous signs that
those two nations are beginning to think more
and more of the things in w hich they sympa
thize, and less and less of those in which they
differ. (Cheers.) Common language is not. in
deed, the surest bond of amity, for this
enables each country to understand whatever
unpleasant tiling the other may chance to say
about it. As I am one of those that teiieve
honest friendship between England and America
is a most desirable thing I trust that we on both
sides will think it equally desirable in our inter
course, one with the other, to make our mother
tongue search her coffer round for t he polished,
rather than sharp cornered epithets she
lias stored there. Let us by all means
speak the truth to eaeh other, for there
Is no one else who can speak it to either of us
with such fraternal feeling for the weak points
of the other, but let ns do ii in such a way as to
show that it is the truth we love anil not the
discomfort we can inflict by means of it.
[Cries of "Hear! Hear!"] Let us say agreeable
things to each other and of each other when
ever we conscientiously can. My friend, Mr.
Childs, has said one of !hese agreeable things
in a very solid and durable way. Common
literature and common respect for certain
qualities of character and ways of thinking sup
ply a neutral ground where we may meet in as
surance that we will And something amiable in
each other, and from being less than kin be
come more than kin. [Cheers ] In old maps
the line which outlined the British possessions
in America included the greater part of what is
the territory of the United States. Tin- posses
sions of America in England are laid down
on no map, yet he hold- thi m in memory and
imagination by title such as no conquest ever
established and no revolution can ever over
throw. The dust that is sacred to you is sacred
to him. The annals which Shakespeare makes
walk before us in flesh and blood are his no less
than j’anrs. These are the ties which we recog
nize. mud are glad to recognize on oc
casions like this. They will he

on with her work of abolishing time and space,
and thus render more easy t inn peaceful com
merce twist different shores which is so potent
to clear away whatever is exclusive in nation
ality or savors of barbarism in patriotism.
I remain, dear Mr. Mayor, faithfully yours,
J. K. Lowell, t
Enthusiastic cheers were given when tho
Mayor finished reading Mr. Lowell's letter.
The Poet Whittier had also written a let
ter to Mr. Childs, in which he said the gift
during the present year was a happy
thought as connected with the Queen’s
jubileo and would go toward atoning for
foolish utterances about England coming
from some American citizens. This portion
of the letter was received with cries, “Hear,
The poem, written for the occasion by
Oliver Wendell Holmes, was read by Mr.
Henry Irving with splendid effect amid
plaudits, as follows:
The following poem by Oliver Wendell
Holmes was read:
Welcome, thrice welcome is thy silvery gleam,

Braids her loose flowing hair.
Nor the swift current, stainless as it rose

To seek thy calm retreat;

While flocking round them troops of children

Here shall the steed, his patient life who spends
In toil that never ends,
Hot from his thirsty tramp o'er hill and plain.
Plunge his red nostrils, while the torturing
Drops in loose loops beside his floating mane;
Nor the jvior brute that, shares his master's
Find his small needs forgot
Truest of humble, long-enduring friends.
Whose presence cheers, whose guardian care de

And skimming swallows dip.
And strange shy wanderers fold their lustrous
Fragrant from bowers that lent their sweet per
Where Ptrstum's rose or Persia's lilac blooms;
Here from his cloud the eagle stoop to drink
At the full basin's brink.
And whet his beat against its rounded lip.
His glossy feathers glistening as they drip.
Here shall the dreaming .poet, finger long,

Nor lute nor lyre his trembling hand shall
Here no frail Muse shall imp her crippled wing;
No faltering minstrel strain his throat to sing!
These hallowed echoes who shall dare t o claim
Whose tuneless voice would shame.
Whose jangling chords with jarring notes would

From the far home of brothers' love, unbought!

Yet in her burning life-blood reign contest
Her mother's pulses beating in her breast.

Its gracious drops shall lend,
Both foreheads bathed in that baptismal dew,
And love t .akeone the old home and the new!

As an actor I can crave no higher distinction
than that of being prominently associated with
some public work in connection with Shakes
peare's memory in Shakespeare's native town.
It is to the lasting honor of the actor's calling
that the poet of all time was a player and that
lie achieved immortality by writing for the
stage. Of all the eloquent tributes which have
been paid to Shakespeare one over
recalls the words of his fellow-actors, to whose
loving care we owe the first edition of his works
and who tell us that he was as happy an imitn
tor of nature as he was a most gentle expresser
of it. In a few days 1 shall sail for the great
country when* any worthy representation of
Shakespeare on the stage commands just as
staunch support from the public as in our own
land. I shall carry as your ambassador to Mr.
Childs your appreciation of his generous gift.

RIOTING IN LONDON.
The Trafalgar Square Mob Again on
London, Oct. 17.—A deputation of un
employed workmen went to the Mansion
House to-day and demanded that they be
supplied with work. The Board of Aider
men referred them to the workhouse.
When the deputation reported the result of
their mission to those who had sent them
the mob became infuriated and started
marching toward the city. They were sur
rounded by a force of police. The mob
proceeded without committing overt act
until the Strand was reached, when they
turned upon the police and at
tacked them with stones. The po
lice charged upon the crowd
and scattered them, capturing a number of
banners. The mob then returned to Tra
falgar square, where several of the leaders
made speeches, which had the effect of ex
citing the crowd. The police again made a
charge, and after some resistance, succeeded
in clearing the square. After a time the
mob, which had now gained some rein
forcements, attempted to again enter the
square, hut after a general fight, they were
prevented from doing so by the jxilice. Sev
eral policemen were injured.

riot and many of the contestants were so

A Building Falls in at New York and
Kills Twenty Workmen.
New York, Oct. 17.—A four-story build
ing, in course of erection, at No. 443 East
One Hundred and Fifteenth street, to be
used as u school house, tumbled in this
afternoon and many workmen were buried
in the ruins. The building had reached the
fourth story. The whole front wall fell.
At- that time there were over twenty men
in the building at work and they were all
buried in the ruins. A search was at once
commenced and, at 6 o’clock this evening,
six dead bodies had been taken from the
ruins. Four men were taken out seriously
wounded and almost suffocated.
The supposition is that them are still
fourteen men underneath the debris.
Most of the workmen were engaged in
the lower part of the building at the time
of the accident. The side walls fell immedi
ately after the front wall gave way. The
workmen wem all Italians, and the school
house was intended for the education of
Italian children. Two hook and ladder
companies and numerous citizens engaged
in searching the ruins.
There are no sounds heard from the wreck
and it is supposed that those buried are all
New York, Oct. 17, 11 r. m.—A later re
port says that live (icrsons wem killed and
over a dozen more or loss wounded. (If the
latter Father Armelinn Keener,the priest- in
charge of the Church of Our Lady of Mount
Carmel, will probably die.
He was standing on the fourth story talk
ing to the foreman at the time of the crash,
and was thrown to the forward part of the
wreck, landing on his feet, sustaining
spinal injuries. Lynch, the foreman of the
building, escaped, l>ut cannot now lie found.
There were a number of miraculous escapes
from death. The killed are:
John Duncan, a bricklayer.
Henry Roinitz, a blacksmith.
Two Italians and one unknown man.
The building was begun about four months
ago under the supervision of Father Kernel
who hoped to save money by doing without
a contractor. The cause of its fall
is said to have been caused by a
violation of the building laws, no
central supports having been placed under
the beams of the first floor, which were
simply run into the walls, hut central
supports were used on some stories. It is
also charged that the walls were run up too
hastily, and that the mortar was not given
time to dry. Besides this, the constant jar
ring from the donkey engine used in hoist
ing material caused the weak walls to oscil
late, and they finally swung over from east
to west, carrying down both side ones. The
walls were only sixteen inches thick in some
places. The budding, when finished, was
calculated to accommodate 3,(SKI children.

and all are in perfect health now. Dr.
Wylly has a thirty-eight mile cordon
around Tampa, consisting mostly of mount
ed armed jiatrols. Not a refugee has es

is particularly pleased at the quarantine

says there is a likelihood of killing t he fever

There has lieon no case of yellow fever in

be raised all over the State in two or three
days and the cordon around Hillsborough

of yellow fever at Tampa. W hen the fever
first made its advent in Key West many of
(he people of this city left Orlando, but
more has left since its apiiearance in
Tampa. It was but natural that the first
reports should eause alarm and the bulletin
boards were eagerly sought by the more
nervous particularly as reports were of a
meager nature. Aside from the first appre

this city has experienced no further uneasi

Crossing Black creek the doctor noticed that
the draw was left open after the train had
passed, contrary to the orders issued by the
Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West railway.
When Palatka win reached the pair of in
spectors repaired to the platform to observe
the workings there. As ho noted the crowds
of people pressing close to the train the
doctor's usually serene brow knit and he ex
claimed impatiently, "This will npver do;
this must oe stopped." A negro loafer
attempted to get on the train and when the
reporter told him to get off, he laughed ami
said, “YVhy, boss, I’se duz that ev’ry day.”
At this the doctor’s patience again gave
way and as he made a memorandum
of the occurrence, he remarked,
"We’ll see if this is continued much
longer.” He was greatly displeased at the
la ex of precautions there, and said it must
be remedied at once, or the trains wouid
not be permitted to run through Palatka.
