five Thousand of Them Going to

ilBportant- Question of a Delicate Natnre
to le Discussed,

kh "Worcester, Mass., July B. Albert P.
! Marble, the Superintendent of the public
? icbools of this city, is the President this
..- year of the Kational Educational Associa-
, , tion, which will hold its annual meeting in
,-' 'iJashyille, Term., on July 16, 17, 18 and 19.
'. Xike all of these summer meetings, this
gathering of teachers of the country will
bare two distinct objects, pleasure and
..profit. Careful attention has been paid to
both features of the plan, and each teach-
. er cai9 obtain both at reduced
rates. All through the "Western
" 7 Btates the railroads hare followed their
""" practice of recent years, and hare given
, calf rates to all members of the association.
,, It is Mr. Marble's -expectation that 5,000
teachers from the Korthern States will at
i tend the meeting, and as many more from
the South. Letters have been received by
hita from Alabama, Georgia, South Caro-
lina, CVirginia and other places, indicating
" a good representation from every State in the
South, with the exception of Arkansas.
. The pleasure in the programme is to be
found in the going and returning by difler
, . ent routes, and in the excursions from
'iJ "Nashville as a centerto the Mammoth Cave-
the natural bridge, Imray Cavern and
' teany battlefields.
t Kashville people have been extremely
t- cordial in their welcome to the association.
The city was selected provisionally at the
Sieeting of the association in San Francisco
last July, and when Mr. Marble went to
Nashville last November, be was met at
Cincinnati by a committee sent for that pur
pose. In Nashville he received a most
cordial greeting from the citizens and
-. from educational men from Alabama and
' Mississippi, who attended the public meet
f Sue for the purpose of putting the matter
before; the people. Chattanooga, Memphis
and other cities were also represented. All
' of these Southern people were enthusiastic
strain the meeting, ana mere was no Hesita
tion in making the final decision to hold it
t It has been feared that trouble would
Wise from the prejudice regarding colored
people. The Northern men have stated
their position to the Nashville managers of
the meeting, especially in behalf oi such
colored teachers as may go from the North,
who are accustomed to Northern treatment,
and it is understood that special care will
be taken to have everything pass off
smoothly. One of the local committees is
"On Colored People," and the whole re
sponsibility for amicable arrangements has
been pat upon them. Without doubt, many
colored teachers from the South will attend,
'and the number has been estimated as high
as 4,000.
Several id ras will be made prominent at
this comUg meeting, and it is hoped that
permanent good will come from the things
said and d tne. In the first place, will be
the patriotic idea. It is hoped that the
meeting will increase the friendliness of the
2orth and South, and that the patriotism
ef each section will be reinforced by that of
the other. In order that the impression
from this feature may be the
more lasting, the exercises in accord
with it will occur on Friday
evening; July 19, the very last meeting of
.the association. Colonel A. S. Colvar, a
Kashvills journalist, will speak on "Edn
frtion and the Eepublic" E. "W. Webb,
If BeRbackle, Tenn., will address the asso
ciation on "The Teaching of Patriotism in
the Public Schools and Everywhere," and
General H. B. Carrington. of Hyde Park,
Mass., will take up the subject of "History
a Patriotio Force in School."
Another subject which will be made
prominent will be the growth of the South
in education within the last 25 years. A
colored teacher, John H. Burrus, of Bod
Bey, Miss., will speak on "The Educational
Progress of the Colored People in the
South," George T. Winston, of Chapel
Hill, N. C, will have a paper on "Tne
Higher Education of the Negro," and
the Bev. Dr. A. G. Haygood, of Decatur,
Ala., who is the agent for the distribution
of the John F. Slater fund in the South.
will speak of what has been accomplished
under his administration. Messrs. Burrus
and Winston will speak on Wednesday even

Manual training will be another of the
prominent topics before the assembled edu
A fourth leading subject at the meeting
trill be what is called here the parochial
fechool issue, though the real significance of
the subject is often veiled by the use of the
word "private" instead of '"parochial." In
this case the speakers are not professional
educators, as they are in all the other cases.
Bishop Keane, of the new Catholic Univer
sity at Washington, and Csrdinal Gib

question relating to denominational schools,

Deacon A Solemn Ceremony
Presided Over bv Arch
bishop Rraru
Philadelphia, July 5. ThomasEwing
Sherman, a son of General William Tecum
teh Sherman, received the orders of tub
deacon in Archbishop Ryan's private
chapel this morning at 7 o'clock. Mr.
She. man arrived in this city on Wednesday
evening, and is the guest of the Archbishop.
Previous to his coming to this city he had
been in a spiritual retreat at Woodstock
College, Maryland, for eight days. The
ceremony of this morning was entirely pri
vate, only the clergy and members of the
family of the young candidate being ad
mitted. Among the latter were Mr. and
Mrs. Thomas W. Fitch, of Pittsburg; Mr.
and Mrs. A. M. Thackara, of this city; Miss
Sherman, Miss Rachel Sherman, Mr. D.
Tecumseh Sherman, of New York; Mrs.
Colonel Steele, an aunt, and Mrs. A. M.
Dangherty, ot Columbus. O.
At 7 o'clock the candidate wearing an
nmice, alb and cincture, and carrying on
his left arm the maniple and tunic, entered
the sanctuary preceded by the acolytes,'
altar boys and priests, the Archbishop fol
lowing. The Archbishop proceeded to hit
$eat where he was clothed in the pontifical
Vestments. All tbe other clergy knelt in a
semi-circle around the altar, The candi
date prostrated himself while the litany of
the saints was being solemnly chanted by
the master of ceremonies, the responses being
made by the clergymen in attendance. After
the litanr and Kyrie Eleison had been said,
the pontffical inhibition or mandate was
read in Latin bv tbe Archdeacon of the
lnasr, Father O'Keeie, in the name of the
Archbishop. The Archdeacon then called
forward tne candidate and the notary
announced the name and title to which he
was to be ordained. The archbishop ad
dressed the candidate who remained kneel
2Bg at the foot of. the altar. The address
VM in It&tin, Mr. Sherman, was advised to
consider well the ministry that was to be
given to him, and was reminded of bis
duties at the altar, which he was urged
to study and execute neatly and diligently.
Continuing, the archbishop said, "and,
therefore, if heretofore you have been slug
gish in devotion to the church, henceforth
you should be diligent; if heretofore you
nave been slumbering, henceforth you
should be vigilant; if heretofore given to
drink, henceforth temperate; if heretofore
lacking in purity, henceforth chaste. All
of which may He vouchsafe to grant you
who liveth and reigneth God world without
end; Amen."
The candidate was then presented with an
empty chalice, covered with a paten, after
which the Archdeacon handed him cruets
filled with wine and water, and a basin and
towel, all oi which he merely touched. As
the chalice was presented to him the Arch
bishop spoke of the ministry, and then ad
dressing the congregation asked that the
blessing of God might descend upon them
all. The several vestments proper to the
sub-deacon's orders were then presented to
Mr. Sherman. The young sub-deacon was
handed a book of the'epistles, and in a short
prayer the Archbishop asked in the name of
the Holy Trinity that the candidate would
have the power to teach the epistles in tbe
holy church of God, both for the living and
for the dead. Mr. Sherman will be or
dained deacon to-morrow and on Sunday
will take the orders of priesthood
Tbe Quaint Sanctuary Wbere Simon Cam
eron Worshiped In Boyhood The
Witness Oak Returning;
Good for Evil.
Motjitt Joy, Pa., July S.-fili Donegal
Church, so frequently mentioned in sketches
of the late General Simon Cameron, is one
of the most interesting relics of pioneer
Christianity in this country. East Donegal
township, in this county, was settled by
sturdy Scotch-Irish emigrants more
than 175 years ago. In 1723 they or
ganized the East Donegal Presbyterian
Society. In 1740 John, Richard and
Thomas Penn, the proprietors of Pennsyl
vania, conveyed to the society 200 acres of
land for church purposes. In that year the
church was built. It replaced a log church
which had been put up in 1724, in which
the Bev. James Anderson, one of the first
Presbyterian preachers in New York City,
had preached since 1726, having accepted a
call from the East Donegal Church in
that year. The present church is built of
stone, tbe walls being covered with
plaster. It stands in a grove of ancient
trees. Originally it had but one door, a
double one, on the southwest side; but
about 1750, a door was cut in each end and
the interiorjiomewhat changed to accom
modate the increased attendance. The
church has no steeple. Among the relics
that are preserved with the church is the
original communion table, a heavy walnut
table, pat together with wooden pegs. The
table was used in the old log church as
early as 1727.
One of the most revered objects connected
with the old East Donegal Church, which is
looked upon as part ot tne quaint sanctuary,
is an immense oak tree that stands In the
yard in front of the church, and lasts a vast
expanse of shade when in leaf. This tree.
although not less than four centuries old, is
as sound and sturdy as it was when the
aborigines camped beneath its spreading
branches. It is called "The Witness Oak."
In 1777 the Rev. Colin McFarquhar, a
learned Scotch divine, was pastor of the
church. His wife and family were in
the mother country, and while he had
never positively avowed his loyalty to the
EJng, he had not shown that he favored the
American cause in tbe Revolution. His
sermons often counseled conciliatory
measures in the struggle, and the Sunday
before the battle of Brandywine he-was
preaching such a sermon. His congrega
tion was made up of stern and uncompro
mising patriots, and on that day they re
solved to give positive demonstration of
their love for the American cause.
They left the church before services
were over, taking the pastor with
them, formed a circle around the big oak
tree, and with it as a witness they swore an
oath of allegiance to the Colonial Govern
ment and its cause, and compelled the Rev.
Colin McFarquhar to do the same. A few
days later tbe most of that'band. under the
lead ot the dashing and impulsive Colonel
Alexander Lowry, fell at the Brandywine,
and mingled their blood with its waters.
The old Donegal residence, so dear to
General Cameron, and where he died, is
near this ancient church, and is so situated
that to drive upon its grounds requires a
wide circuit around the church crounds.
Some years ago General Cameron offered to
endow the church in the sum of $10,000,
and secure the same sum from his brother
William, to be used for the benefit of the so
ciety, which was and is barely self-sustaining,"
provided the society would grant him
right of way throughacornerof the church's
groinds, so that he could reach his
own grounds without having to drive so
much out of his way. He was then in
active politics, and the East Donegal con
gregation contained several prominent anti
Cameron men. "Under the lead of one of
these the congregation refused the offer, an
act since deeply regretted by tbe societv.
But this rejection of his generous offer did
not serve to lessen General Cameron's
affection for tbe old church, dear to him
through boyhood association, and by the
presence of tbe graves of his father and
mother in its burial ground. Only a few
months ago he wrote a touching letter to his
legal adviser in Lancaster, in which be re
quested the lawer to meet him at Donegal
Springs and draw up a paper in which the
old church was to besubstantially remem
bered. ""
For Slate and Tile Workers Protection.
R. R. Livingston, Recording Secretary of
local Assembly 491, K. of L. (the slate and
tile workers' new independent local), called
at this office last evening to say that there
had been some misunderstanding with re
gard to tbe organization alluded to. It was
simply formed, he said, to protect brothers
in good standing who were not recognized
by the Federation of Labor, and it did not
draw anv support whatever for the protec
tion of tie bosses.

An Express Train Strikes a Carrla-te, KIII-
Inr tbe Four OccJpanU.
Red Bank, N. J., July fi. A horrible
railroad accident occurred at Little Silver
this afternoon, by which four persons lost
their lives. These were Mrs. Ward, widow
of the late Samuel M. Ward, of New York;
her son-in-law, Joseph Keating; Elsie, the
3-year-old daughter of Mr. Keating, and a
nurse girl. About a week ago she moved
down to her summer cottage. Mr. and Mrs.
Keating, their five children and the nurse
girl, whose name could not be learned, came
with her. This afternoon at 2 o'clock Mrs.
Ward, Mr. Keating and his daughter Elsie,
and the nurse girl started out for a drive.
They drove westward toward the Ocean
Port bridge.
As tbey reached the railroad crossing near
Schanck Conover's farm, which is close to
Parker's creek, at one time the scene ot a
fearful railroad disaster, the 438 way train
bound north was seen approaching. They
waited until the train had passed and then
started to cross the track, not observing the
south-bound express train coming toward
them, and before Mr. Keating could pull
tbe horse around tho locomotive struck the
carriage. Mrs. Ward, Mr. Keating and
the nurse girl were instantly killed. The
top of Mrs. Ward's head was mashed in and
one of Mr. Keating's arms was cut ofi.
The nurse girl was considerably cut about
the head, and she received several injuries
about the body. The little girl, Elsie, was
alive when picked up. She was carried to
the Little Silver station and -Drs. Crater, of
Ocean Port, and Whitmore, of Red Bank,
were summoned. The little one was uncon
scious, and tbe only marks seen upon her
were a slight scratch at the side of her nose
and a few cuts upon her legs. She lived,
but an hour, and her injuries must have
been internal ones.
