Welcome te the New Minister In Charge.
Last evening the friends of the Presby
terian mission chapel gathered in large
numbers te welcome the minister in
charge, Rev. James C. Hume. Leng be
fore the time appointed for the exercises
te begin the chapel was filled te overflow
ing, and a great interest was shown in this
reception by the officers, teachers and
'scholars, who for years have labored se
faithfully for the mission. This Sabbath
school has attained a standing sepend te
n )iic in this city, and the success of the
enterprise is due te its able and devoted
corps of teachers and officers.
The exercises, were opened by the singing
of i-everal anthems by the choir f the
Presbyterian church, after which Rev. J.
Y. Mitchel addressed the audience stating
that the subject of this meeting was te in
troduce and'wclceme Rev. .1. C. Hume te
this new field of labor. lie reviewed at
length the work done by the mission
school, and the inlluence for geed it had
exerted in the community. A few deter
mined men aud women started a Sabbath
school about eleven years age, in the
Shilller hose house adjoining, and by their
zeal and energy were seen abic te secure
funds te build this beautiful chapel. lie
said the accessions te the parent church
had net been great, but many had been
taught the truths uttered by the Master
and had united themselves with this and
ether Christian denominations. The seed
here sewn was bearing geed fruit, and it
is new time that some one designed and
fitted for the work of building up a church
in this place should be called, and all in
terested in this effort feel that Mr. Hume
is their choice. He knew that the earnest
and heart-felt prayers of all were for suet-ess,
and he eeuld assure the friends of
the mission school and the new pastor
that the prospects were most encourag
ing. Mr. Hume was then introduced and made
an impressive, able, and earnest address.
He felt deeply thankful for this hearty and
kind reception, and entered upon his work
with all the energy and zeal at his com
mand. He found here a field of labor and
hoped by help of the earnest friends of
this mission te show geed results at the
end of his year's work, In the visits he
had already made he va very kindly re
ceived and he found the people glad
that this enterprise was begun,
and all welcomed him te their midst.
He knew by the happy homes and kind
words spoken that the mission school was
a power for geed in the community, and
though it could net be measured by actual
results, yet he saw the fruits of the labors
of these who have built up this school.
He came te preach the truths taught by
Christ, and believed they would find a
lodgment in the hearts of many who had
net yet professed His name.
After the addiess he gave out a hymn
ami the whole audience joined in the sing
ing. The benediction was then pronounced
after which the audience welcomed Mr.
Hume by their hearty congratulations and
kind words. Among the number were
the elders of the Presbyterian church and
Dr. Carpenter, whose substantial sympa
thy and kindness the friends of the mis
sion will never forget. It was through the
gift of Dr. II. Carpenter of the let of
ground upon which the chapel is built,
that its early success was in a great mea
sure due. and he has always had a kind
word te say in its behalf. Te the ladies of
the school the audience ewe the fine dis
play of flowers en the pulpit and the ether
decorations of the chapel.
J. Hay lb-own, esq., de!egate-at-large te
the Chicago convention, having been intei
vicweil by an Intki.muknci'R reporter,
said : "I am satisfied with Garfield ; but
the convention made a grave mistake in
net nominating Grant. Blaine could net
have carried a single Southern state, nor
could lie have carried the debatable North
ern states. He could net have carried
New Yerk, and without New Yerk must
inevitably have been defeated. Grant
could have carried New Yerk easily." Mr.
Brown was a-dced if Garfield could carry
New Yerk. Without answering directly,
he said if the Democrats nominate Bayard
or a man of equal strength there will be a
neck and neck contest, and if Gar
field is beaten, the Republicans
four years hence will rise en masse
and demand the nomination of their "Old
Commander, '" who will sweep the coun
try. It was a mistake te nominate Arthur.
Gen. Beaver should have been and prob
ably would have been the nominee had it
net been for the temporary absence of
some of the Pennsylvania delegates. Den
Cameren was offered the nomination, but
would net take it, and joined with Conk Cenk
ling in supporting Aithur; but many
Western delegates favored Beaver, and had
his friends announced at the proper mo
ment that he would accept the position, he
could scarcely have been defeated. Mr.
Brown expressed unbounded admiration
for Conkling, and said he was the idol of
the convention, notwithstanding the fact
that the galleries were packed with Ii"s

Our county commissioners, Messrs.
Bushong, Ceble and Montgomery, yester
day visited the Celeman ere mines near
Speedwell, with the object of viewing
them and ascertaining- their value, se as te
have them equitably assessed for county
purposes. The commissioners were hos
pitably entertained by Mr. A. Wilhelm,
the general superintendent of the estate.
The commissioners, after making a thor

THE OLDEST CITIZEN.
Who lie Is and Where He Has Spent Bis
The Philadelphia Inquirer has an ac
count of Richard Rice, a colored man, who
is new living at Ne. 420 Fethcrgill street,
that city, at the ripe age eT 100. He has
never used glasses, and he can read, sew,
thread a needle, and darns his own stock
ings though he has a young wife, aged 80.
Rice was born in ILirferd county, Mary
land, near Baltimore, in 1774, of slave par
ents en the Webster plantation. On the
death of his master Richard was sold te a
Mr. Massey, who owned an adjoining
plantation, te serve until he was twenty
one years of age, after which, according te
the previsions of the will of his old master,
he was te serve one of the heirs for eight
years before he received his freedom.
When he was 24 he was manumitted,
crossed the river at a point near Pert De
posit, and worked for a few months, when
ha made his way te Columbia, this county,
and obtained work in a distillery, where he
remained fourteen years.
Shei try after his arrival in Columbia he
married Nancy Richards, went te house
keeping, and having steady work mada a
geed living, lived comfortably and saved
up a little money. Seven, children were
born te him in this place, and when the
youngest was about three years of age a
scheme was projected for the colonization
of Hayti, and the ship Charles was char
tered te take out a lead of emigrants.
Richard sold out in Columbia, and, ac
companied by his wife, one daughter,
aged eleven years, a son, three years, and
a niece thirteen years of age, and sixteen
of his friends and neighbors, proceeded te
Philadelphia, where they joined the colony
of about three hundred souls, and set sail
for their new home.
All landed safely, but seen began te
sicken and die from fevers and malarial
diseases, until only a handful of the baud
which had landed wiih such bright hopes
of a successful future were left. After
staying about three years Richard started
for home, leaving his wife and the two
girls te fellow him, the little boy having
died some time before, and landed in Phil
adelphia, wheie he remained for a short
time, and then returned te Columbia.
In speaking yesterday of his return the
old man seemed te be inspired with some
of his old-time vigor, and said : "I was
homesick te get back, and thought I
would be very happy, but when I lauded
and thought of my family left behind me I
was very unhappy. I remember we
landed en the 0th of March, and there was
snow en the ground, the first I bad seen
for three years, and it made everything
leek mere like home than it would have
done without it."
He sent for Ins wife a short time after
his return, but she died before she eeuld
take passage, and her sister, who had
gene with the company, kept the girls,
aud he has never heard anything from
them since receiving the news of his wife's
The first thing Richard found te de after
returning te Columbia was the building of
the reservoir, and the digging of the
trenches for the pipe from the spring
where the water was obtained. The con
tract for the work was taken by three men
a'ld successfully carried out, they doing all
the work except the blasting of a small
quantity of hard rock which they encoun
tered. Te test the memory of the old man, he
was asked hew long the trench was from
the spring te the basin, and he answered,
without a moment's hesitation, " One
miie aud a quaiterand twelve perches, and
we dug every feet of ait, except eleven
perches of lock which yfe had blasted."
After the completion of the waterworks
he worked en the ferry between Columbia
and Wrightsville for a number of years,
assisted in building the first bridge which
spanned the river at that point, and, en it
being destroyed by a Heed, aided in build
ing the second one, which was destroyed
by fire in July, 1804, during the rebel
He also assisted in building the dam,
anil is able te give all the minute details of
the work. During this time, in the year
ISe'-l, he again married, his second wife
being a widow named Henrietta Lee, and
who is still living and in geed health, al
though almost eighty years of age. By
this marriage Richard became the brother-in-law
of Stephen Smith, senior partner of
the firm of Smith & Whippcr, extensive
lumber dealers of Philadelphia and Colum
bia, and afterward father-in-law of Win.
Whippcr, the junior member of the same
firm, who married the present Mrs. Rice's
daughter by her first marriage.
Fer years he remained in Columbia,
worked en the river and in lumber yards,
lived fiugally and accumulated some prop prep
ty both in that place and in Wrightsville,
but in 1837, although the winters and sum
mers of mere than four score years had
passed ever his bead, he sold out every
thing, and, in company with his wife and
two children, emigrated te Canada, where
he rented a small farm and went te work.
The country and.climate were new te them
and for the first year they were unable te
make anything, and after buying their
cows, a horse, some pigs and sheep, their
little heaul of geid was nearly all gene be
fore they could get any icturn for their
Th 33' remained there seventeen years by
which time they had become peer, and
after selling out what little remained, bare
ly hid enough te bring them te the home of
daughter in Philadelphia, where they
have since resided. The daughter married
in Canada, and went te Philadelphiajbcferc
the old folks came, and was thus prepared
te eiler them a home, but has had hard
enough work te maintain the old people at
times, owing te the very peer health of
her husband, who is very often unable te
fellow his tiadc, but the large end of the
last leaf has always been reserved for the
old father and mother.
During their stay in Canada the old lady
occupied her time in spinning and weaving
the wool obtained from their sheep, and
points with pride te a number of blankets
which she made herself.
The old man remembers distinctly the
spots which appeared en the sun in 1799,
the funeral of General Washington, the
war of 1812, and a number of ether promi
nent and interesting events which occur
red in the present century. On being re
minded that he had passed the allotted
time of life, he said : " Well, I want te
live as long as the Lord -wills, but I am
ready te go when lie calls'me."
Richard has been an active and. con
sistent member 'of the Metkedist' church
for a number of years, and loses no oppor
tunity of presenting his Master's cause te
these with whom he comes in contact.

AN INSANE NKtiRO.
His Eacape ami Capture.
On the 12th of September last, Alexan
der Craig, a colored man, whose home is
in Little Britain township, was brought
into court, charged with felonious assault
and battery. A verdict of no- guilty was
taken in this case, as the man is ciazy and
he was removed te the county insane
asylum. This morning Craig made his
escape from this institution, and word was
immediately sent te the city. It was
thought that he would go in the direction
of his home, and Captain Sprechcr started
in pursuit. RehcitJ. Evans, esq., of this
citi', was about starting en a visit te his
farm in Little Britain township at the time,
and as he was acquainted with Craig,
Captain Sprechcr concluded te hire a team
and drive behind Mi. P. vans. The two
started together, and when they reached
the Spread Eagle, Providence township,
the' overtook Craig. Capt. Sprechcr told
the landleid what his business was, and
after a short tune he asked Craig his name
and told him that he panted him. Craig
at once took the hint and started te run.
Sprechcr followed him and after a severe
struggle, in which several men at the hotel
assisted the officer, he succeeded in getting
the handcuffs en the colored man. He was
then placed in a buggy and brought te this
city. On the way te town he made a sec
ond attempt te escape but was unsuccess

FIVE SrURIOUS COLLEGES.
Supprened la Philadelphia After UiTlag Di
ploma. - k
Members or the Alleged Faculty Arrested
Three Thousand 8bam Dlpleasas
Said te HUT Been Sold
Exposed by a News
paper. Fer twelve or fifteen years Philadelphia
has been the seat of a number of medical
colleges that flooded the country with
spurious diplomas. The Legislature of
Pennsylvania tried, in 1872, te suppress
the institutions, but failed, and they have
been run ever since en legally issued char
ters. The authorities declared themselves
powerless te step it.Six months age the city
editor of the Recerd, Jehn Norris, called
the attention of Attorney General Pal
mer te these concerns, and the grave
necessity for thcr suppression. But the
state had no evidence against them,
and the attorney general had no money
with which te proceed. Then the Recerd
etfercd te advance the money te the com
monwealth upon premise of reimburse
ment by the state Legislature, and the
work was begun. Yesterday it culminated
in proceedings which will wipe out five
spurious medical colleges, and the arrest
of Jehn Buchanan, dean of the American
university at Philadelphia and the Eclectic
medical college of Pennsylvania. He was
also president of the National ic'.ectij med
ical association, which issued diplomas,
and under the alias of James Murray, D.
I)., he acted as dean of a concern issuing
diplomas as the Livingstone university of
America. Twe ether of the faculty,
Charles S. Polk and Jehn J. Seggins,
were arrested and six ethers of
the faculty are still at large, appar
ently out of the reach of the police.
The Recerd publishes a full expose. Its
city editor has prepared evidence which it
is alleged will show the sales of forty-two
diplomas te various persons. He gives
the names of eleven ethers te whom the di
plomas were e lie red, and the names el
eleven agents who were acting for Bu
chanan. The Ilccerd man himself set the
trap which resulted in Buchanan's arrest.
Fer $7e he obtained three medical diplo
mas, oue in English from the Eclectic
medical college of Pennsjrlbauia, a regu
larly chartered institution, ene from the
American University of Philadelphia, in
English, and another from the National
Eclectic medical association.
One feature id the proceeding is that
while the last named concern was organ
ized in 187!), its diploma te the newspaper
man, is dated 1878. All purported te
show that the newspaper man
under the name of Dr. Jehn" Fan
ning of Tippecanoe City, Ohie, studied
medicine for three years, had attended
two full courses of lectures, and bad
passed a satisfactory examination iu each
of the seven branches of medicine. Net
satisfied with this evidence he sent letters
under the name of Dr. Gee. A. Dawsen,
apparently belonging te Chester Court
Heuse, S. C, asking for degrees. Fer
$150 he obtained live degrees, two
of doeter of medicine, one doctor of divin
ity, one doctor of laws, and ene
doctor of civil law. The linal letter in
this transaction passed through the mail.
Dr. Buchanan receipting for it. He also
deposited the diplomas iu the mail te be
delivered te the spurious doctor iu Seuth
Carolina. Special Postal Agent Barrett,
Chief of Police Given, a deputy United
States marshal and the newspaper man
walked into Buchanan's place Wednesday
afternoon, anested him and then captured
about half a ten of spurious diplomas,
with a mass of correspondence, showing
the trailie in diplomas and the sale of
about J, 000 sheepskins. Hearings will be
held and proceedings started by the Recerd
through the attorney general te wipe out
live of the colleges.
