    Mackaye’s Funeral Services.
Held in the Michigan Avenue Secenitorium, Chi-
cago, Yesterday Afternoon.
CHicAGO, Feb, 27.—All that is mor-
tal of Steele Mackaye rested this after-
noon before the footlights on tue stage
of the Michigan avenue scenitorium.
The remains arrived at noon, and
were received at the depot by a delega-
tion. When thescenitorium was reach-
ed there was laid on the plain cloth cov-
ered casket a wreath of bride’s roses,
with the simple inscription, “From
Henry Irying.” Besides it rested a
wreath ot-laurel, enveloped in crepe and
with a streamer with the inscription in
old, “Good Night, Sweet Prince.”
ust as the remains were being borne
down the aisle a dispatch was
received from Chauncy M. Depew
tendering a car on the New York
Central road for the casket and
another for those accompanying it.
The funeral excercises commenced at
1 o'clock and the auditorium was pack-
ed to suffocation, The chant, 1 Know
That My Redeemer Liveth,” was ren-
dered by a quartette, and then stepping
to the footlights, Professor Swing com-
menced an eloquent oration, in which
he eulogized the life of the man who
had passed away and spoke of his ser-
vices to the domain of dramatic art.
When the notes of the organ had died
away, Roland Reed came from behind
the scenes and sinking his humorous
rsonahty for the time being, made a
rief but touching address in culogy of
the conferees who had passed before.
Another selection was rendered by the
chorus and, after an address by A. E.
Barron in behalf of the press and litera-
ry circles of Chicago, the exercises con-
cluded with the singing of the familiar
hymn “Abide with Ne” °°
- The lid of the casket was then remov-
ed and those present aftorded an oppor-
tunity of gazing for the last time upon
the features of the dead dramatist. Half
an hour later the doors were again open-
ed and the remains will lie in state until
daybreak on Wednesday morning.

of the severest storm periods of recent
years will prevail over the United
States and Canada from March 7 to
April 13. In many parts of the coun-
try unusually heavy rains or snow will
fall and floods may be expected. Sev-
eral principal low barometers or storm
centers will-cross the continent within
the period, moving eastward: Torna-
does may be expected in those parts
frequented by those destroyers. Tem-
perature will go to great extremes and
frosts will damage early crops far south-
ward. Electric storms will precede and
several cold waves follow some of these
blows. Those crossing the continent
from March 7 to 11,12 to 16, 18 to 24,
25 to 28 and April 4 to 8, should be
carefully watched.”
April term of court will convene here
the fourth week in April when the fol-
lowing jurors will meet to pass on the

Tue JupcesaIp.—The following cor-
respondence has been handed us with
the request to publish. The Hunting-
don letter is written and signed by the
Reputlican members of the bar and the
Republican officials of that county, and
is evidently intended as an attempt to
forestall public opinion, so far as the or-
dinary Republican voter goes, and to
give Judge FuURsT a boom for renomi-
nation. The WATCHMAN and the
Democracy of the district will have no
regrets, if this scheme should prove suc-
cessful, and his “Honor” be placed in &
position that they can give him the polit-
ical drubbing he deserves, next fall.
Huntingdon, Pa., Feb. 16, 1894.
Hox. A. O. Furst,—Sir: The undersigned
members of the Bar of Huntingdon county,
having in view the able ard impartial manner
in which you have performed the responsible
and arduous duties of President Judge of this
district composed of Huntingdon and Centre
counties, for the past nine years, and that
your term of office will expire with the pres-
ent year, deem it of the greatest importance
to the citizens in general, as well as to the
members of the bar that a jurist of your recog-
nized qualifications and large experience
should continue to preside over the several
courts of this county. They, therefore, re-
spectfully request you to be a candidate for
re-election as President Judge of this district,
and hereby pledge you, in such candidacy,
their hearty support.

Huntingdon, Feb. 16, 1894.
Messrs. W. P. Orbison, Wm. Dorris,
S. T. Brown and others, members of
the Bar and officers of the court :
GENTLEMEN: Your letter of the 16th
inst., reqesting me to be a candidate
for re-election as President Judge of
this district, was duly received this
evening. Iam unable to convey to you
in words my appreciation of the courte-
ous expression of your confidence and
Nearly ten years ago I came to this
county, almost an entire stranger. 1
was inexperienced in the duties of the
office which your preference then con-
ferred upon me, I had but one aim
then as I have now—to do my duty,
under my oath of office, with fidelity to
the rights of every suitor before the
Court. I had but one light to follow —
not of experience, for I had none —but
the principles of the law, as I under-
stood them. It would not be singular
under these circumstances, to err. It is
often very difficult, under the press of
intricate cases, in the midst of the trial,
to seizeupon and apply the correct
principles of law involved in thé par-
ticular case. The judge has but little
time to stop and think and study. The
jury is waiting and parties are restless.
The case must be decided, and the only
alternative left for the judge is to pro-
nounce his . judgment according to the
light or learning he may have ; and if
he be in error, to place the error plainly
in the record thata correctiot. may be
had in the Supreme Court. This I have
endeavored to do.
No class of people so intimately know
the anxieties and trials incident of the
Judicial office as the members of the
Bar. They are learned in law; they
are capable of correct judgement ; and
they are the critics upon every decision
of the Court. The entire duties of the
| profession ; and they, of all men, know
whether the rule is administered in its
| purity, according to the rules governing
the case.
These are some of the reasons why I
cannot convey to you in this letter my
feeling ot gratitude in the approval of
the rectitude of my official life. Your
interests in the Judiciary are the inter-
The interest of the
client in the correct decision of the case
is in the hands of Judge. If the Judge
were to decide the case influenced
in his judgement by any consideration
than the law of the land, life, liberty,
and property would be unsafe; while
he, himself, would be unworthy of the
high office he holds.
This D strict is composed of two coun-
Lies, containing a population of about
eighty thousand people. All the litiga-
tion arising in the District must pass
before the Judge for his determination.
It is, therefore, certainly plain that the
burden is great ; and he who keeps this
work from accumulating on his hands
has but few idle days to spend. It has
required nearly ten years to dispose of
special cases in which I was concerned
in Centre County ; but these have now
all been tried or settled, except perhaps
one or two, Hereafter there will be but
little necessity for special Courts in this
District. :
While I have had the benefit of the
experience of the last ten years upon the
Bench, I still feel that I have much to
learn. If, however, I have retained the
confidence of the people of this District
in the rectitude of my motives and of
my official life, I am willing to besa
' candidate for re-election, with the prom-
: ise that, if elected, I will endeavor to
| discharge my full duty, impartially and
with an ever present sense of my responsi-
bility to the Supreme Judge of all.
Thanking you again, I remain, gen-
| tlemen, your obedient servant.

A New Mormon Land.
Latter Day Saints Contract for a Vast Tract in
Mexico to Which Thousands Will Remove.—A
Fertile Region in Chihuahua Embracing 3,000,.
000 Acres.— For the Church’s New Colonies.
CHIHUAHUA, Mexice, Feb, 28.—A
great Mormon colonization scheme is
now practically perfected in Northern
Mexico which, in size and importance,
rivals the first migrations of the saints
to Utah. A contract is drawn up for
the purchase by the Church of 3,000,000
acres of land and the settlement on the
immense tract of 20,000 Mormon col-
onists. A commission of prominent
Mormons is now on the ground for the
purpose of closing the deal, the members
of the commission being A. F. McDon-
ald, George Teasdale, Brigham Young
and Henry Eyering, of Salt Lake City,
The move is the culmination of a plan
long brewirg by which the Mormons
are to remove in large numbers from
their Gentile-invaded territory around
Salt Lake and make a new start for
themselves and their religion in Mexico.
Salt Lake City will probably always be
the great center of Mormonism in
America, but the most populous center
willin a few years doubtless be the
State of Chihuahua.
Will Bring off the Fight.
Burraro, N. Y., February 28,.—The
Mount Clemens syndicate has tele
graphed “Parsons” Davies in this city
that it is prepared to put up $10,000
cash guarantee of its ability to bring
off the Corbett Jackson fizht for which
it has offered a purse of $45,000. Da-
1 vies and Bradley are given the privi-
lege of naming the holder of the for-
feit money.
A syndicate at Salamanca proposes
to bave the fight on the Indian reser-
vation near there, over which the state
authorities have no jurisdiction, The
syndicate does not offer a purse, but
says it will allow the fighters the gate
receipts up to $50,000 and will itself
build an arena accommodating ten
thousand people.

D H, Young Esq. one of Huntingdon coun,
ty’'s intrepid Democrats was seén on our
streets on Sunday, looking exceedingly well
fora battle scarred veteran, evidently the pen-
sion and calamity howlers have not so far, in
the least shook his political faith.
It is by special request of W. R. Port that he
desires through the Warcuman columns
to return his grateful thanks to the voters
of Ferguson township for their suffrage shown
in his behalf at the poles at the late election.
A victory no man needed or appreciated more:
On Tuesday the 20th inst. Mr. J. Cal. Gates
accompanied by his intended bride presented
themselves in a matrimonial mood to Rev. C.
T. Aikens at the Lutheran parsonage in our
town and they were not long kept in sus-
pense as the Rev. hastily drew the matrimon.
ial noose securely. After which they return.
ed to the brides home, at Gatesburg
where a splendid wedding supper await
ed them, A number of friends congratulated
them on their departure from single blessed
ness to married bliss and to these the Warcu~
MAN adds its best wishes.
That prince of good fellows W. B. Mingle of
Centre Hall was among the first on Sunday
morning to view the remains of ex-Treasurer
Later in the day our streets were thronged
with old and young people eager to show re”
spect to the memory of one everybody held in
such high, esteem.
The remains of ex-Treasurer Cyrus Goss
were conveyed by rail from his 5th Avenne
home at Altoona on the 24th inst. accompanied
by the family and a few friends. They were
met at Penna. Furnace by undertaker J. B.
Heberling with a number of carriages that
conveyed the funeral to this place. The re-
mains lay in state at his mother in-laws until
Sunday at 12:30 o'clock when they were carried
to the Presbyterian church. Rev.A. A. Black
assisted by Revs. Illingworth and Aikens con-
ducted the services, which were attended by
forty members of the Bellefonte Masonic
lodge, which had charge of the funeral, scores
of Grand Army men, Odd Fellows and friends
who sincerely mourned the death of one who
had been far too generous and kind for his
own good.
John P. Harris, A. C. Mingle, Geo. T,
Johnson, John T. Olewine and 8. M. Buck
carried the coffin, which was almost covered
with flowers, to the open grave near by the
church and with the burial service of the
masonic order, said by W. F. Reeder, he was
laid to rest.
Deceased was born at Baileyville this coun-
ty Dec. 6th 1844, where hespent his boyhood.
His father Henry Goss after blacksmithing for
some time moved to Armstrong county, when
young Cyrus was about sixteen. The family
engaged in agricultural pursuits at which
young Cyrus assisted until the fall of 62, when
he responded to the call for troops. He en
listed Oct. 2nd in Co. K. 14th, P, V. Cav. in
which he served to the close of the war, par-
ticipating with Sheridan in the Shenandoah.
After the war he remained but a short time
with his parents, and came to his native
County and where he engaged as a clerk.
Jan. 10 1869 he married Alfaretta Fisher. This
union was blessed with fifteen children, four
having died in infancy. Eleven with the sor-
rowing wife have the heartfelt sympathy of
everybody and especially in view of the fact
that so large a number of them are but little
children. Years of his active life was spent as
a farmer until the Waterloo of 1887 when he
was elected County Treasurer and he made a
most obliging and courteous officer. Since his
retirement he resided at Boalsburg and Cen-
ter Hall and within the last year moved to
Altoona where he was employed in the Penna.
R. R. shops. Lately he contracted a severe
cold which terminated with pneumonia, his
illness being so severe and admittedly hope-
lessthat death came to him doubtless as a
welcome discharge from the last roll call, and
while near friends grieved and sorrowed.
Death bid the din of battle cease, took the
banner and sword from the trembling hand
and proclaimed for him eternal peace.
