A Krcat many plugs ever the city are in

Kev. E. E. Sibele, of Philadelphia led
in the seivice of opening, announcing
Psalm, xlvi, and the hymn "Gloiieus
things of thee arc spoken," as the lessens
and praise in honor of tlie event.
Dr. A. Spaeth, of the theological scmi
naiy. being ititierfuccil, nddicsscd the
meeting in Get man. He thought it emi
nently appiepnate for the synod te cele
brate the anniversaiics of tlie 23th of
.June, 13:,0, and tlie 23th of June, 1380,
when the Augsburg confession and the
C.mceidia wete given te the chuich.
These have together constituted, fixed
and established our r.iith. The Augsburg
confession is tliecetitic of Lutheianisin. it
is the conle.ssien of the llib.e. We new
celelirate the seenth jubiblee of the unity
of the faith, in out Fei inula of Conceid.
The concerdia is net the presentation of a
"conceid" wheic tlieie Is none ; but it is
a unity of these who held the tiuth in
sincerity, and in the harmony of one faith.
We de net want unionism, but concetd
always that is pleasing te Ged.
Dr. II. E. Jacobs, of Pennsylvania eefi
lege, Gettysbuig, followed in a English
addicss. lie said the Reek of Conceid is a
memorial of epochs in the liisteiy of the
chuich. The jubilee te-night is net a
mere celebration, but a deft use ; we hcte
renew our weapons, st lengthen our walls
against dangers piesent and fututes.
Thetc may be miner points technically in
ctmcct in our confession, yet the tiuth
within eiircliuiclt is living, no dead. Nine
creeds aie found te the Bejk or Concetd.
The Apostle's Cteed is an expansion of
the baptismal fei inula. Tae rule of faith
was ra'sel beyond this fermuli into
the Niceue Ciced of A. D. :2e.
and the Athanasiaii Creed, the
wik el the Western chuich between tlie
sixth and ninth centuries, A. D. Tlie
Augsburg confession rose out of the sec
ond peiieil in the sixteenth century. The
liisteiy of the giving of the confess'ien was
traced, the pretest .against Reme, and the
false religion and fanaticism that abound
ed at the time. The confession ewes its
origin and life te the spit it and power of
Luther and the confessors. Melanchthen is
the author of the Confessional Apology, in
which was fully discussed the doctitncef
jiisinicatien y i.iitu. l ins is a piccieus
legacy te the pastor of te-day ; a book of
practical religion. Enemies could net un

FRIGHTFUL RAlLKOAU WRECK.
A Trestle-Werk Breaks Mown With nn hn-
Bine en It Narrow Lscape or the
This morning obeut 5 o'clock a frightful
railre.ul wreck occurred at Gorrecht, Riley
& Keller's coal yard, en the Pennsylvania
railroad, near tlie Hanisburg tuinpike
crossing. At the above hour engine Ne.
387, of the local freight, was shifting cais
en the long tiestle-werk siding which runs
into the yard. Several cars of coal had
been shifted up te near the end of the sid
ing, and when tlie engine was running
slowly back te wauls the main track the
trestle-wet k suddenly gave way, at a point
wheie it is about 12 feet high. With a loud
noise the engine fell te the ground. Andrew
Hill, of Columbia, the engineer, saw in an
instant that the locomotive was falling and
he quickly sprang out of the pilot house
and jumped off, en the opposite side from
that en which the engine fell, thus saving
his life. He was severely cut about the
head, face and body, and immediately
after tlie accident was taken te the office
et tlie coal yaid, where his wounds were
dressed, after which lie was removed te
his home in Columbia. Whit Daily, the
fireman, was net en the engine at the time
of the accident and was therefore unin
jured. Tlie two brakemen who were en
the tank at the time saw their danger
and escaped unhiitt by jumping.
The engine fell en the light side of the
trestle work and was turned cemnlctelv
ever. The pilot house, smoke stack .iml
headlight wete bieken efr, and it was
otherwise badly damaged. Tlie injury te
the tank was but slight. Soen after the
accident tlie Parksburg wreck train was
sent for and workmen were engaged all
forenoon clearing away the wieck.
This trestle-work was built several years
age by tlie Pennsylvania railroad company
and although the pieces of timber in it are
vety heavy, some of them were undeubt-

Iii some editorial ciiticism yesterday
upon the appointments of census c'numcr-
atets in this city, in which eenei-t niil
seivice piinciplcs had been violated we
classed Jehn 1'. Mai tin, of the First ward,
with ' Sain. Powell, Fied. Miller and
Adam Snyder," as paties whose only
recommendation was that they were
among the best ward wetkcis. In includ
ing Mr. 3iaitintn tint list, we had no in.
tentien te leilect en his meial character,
against which we knew nothing and have
heaid nothing. We take pleasuie in say
ing this, especially as he seems te have
been injuied by any association of hisname
with the ethers. We had in view only the
question of his qualifications; but even
upon this point we are assured bv tesnect-
ableand lettable citizens of both patties
that we Have underrated him ; and that,
although he ewes his appointment te po
litical influences, it is net a discreditable
one by any means ; and that in all points
of fitness he is quite up te the average
appointee. AH of which we are glad te
hear and glad te say.

chairman of the Chicago delegation. Res
olutiens were adopted requesting the dele
gates te Chicago te use all honorable
means te secure the election of General

competent person te conduct the affairs of

party of Colerado express a pieferance for

purest patriots and most able men that
America has ever produced, and should he
be the nominee at Chicago, "we pledge
him Colerado by as large a majority as
any ether candidate," and pledge them
selves te support the Chicago nominee.
That they are uncompromisingly opposed
te mone-metallism ; that a Democratic
Congress in its treatment of the
Indian question failed te discharge a

" We de net recognize that a treaty exists
