T S if in keeping with the line of tbe
At day, even tbe heavcNis opened and
shed tears of sorrow in copious
liu showers of rain, wbicb fell since
early in tbe night, and tbe gloom with
overshadowed B. lk'f onte whs thus made
even more afectini. And yet notwith
BtandinK tbe inclemency of tbe weather
the crowds that assembled in tbis boun
tiful mountain town to pay the last
tribnte of respect and honor to the
memory of one bo dear to every patriot
heart, ex-Governor Andrew Cttrtin,
was numbered by thousands. Prom
inent men from all over the
state and adjoining states were
here, nmonir the number beinc
Governor Pattison, General John
R. Brooke, Colorsol A. K. . McClure,
Colonel William B. Mann, Jndge Craig
Diddle, Morton JIcMichael, Judge
Landis, Jerome B. Niles and hundreds
of others.
The first pnrt of the funeral services
held was a citizens' meeting in the court
house ui 10 o'clock, when that building
was packed to overflowing with friends
of tbe deceased. Judge Farst opened
tbe meeting in a brief and very appro
priate speech, and General Beaver rend
the minutes and resolutions of the
Center county bar association, which
were adopted. Brief tributes were
then paid to the life and memory
of tbe deceased in most fitting terms
by several gentleman. Colonel Will
iam B. Mann, of Philadelphia, was
the first speaker. Colonel Mann
has been a lifulong friend of Governor
Curtin and the tribute paid by bim
whs one of the most affecting of tbe
day. It was the outpouring of the sor
rowful heart of a brother and was
tempered with tears which rolled down
his cheeks. Speaking of Car tin's love
for tbe soldiers, Mr. Mann said that he
had said to tbe men when enlisting,
"Go forward boys and fight for your
conntry, and when you come back onr
baskets and storerooms shall be opin to
you." And everybody knows how well
that promise was kept.
TRIBUTES TO THE DEAD.
Governor Pattison was Introduced
and paid a touching and glowing tri
bute to the memory of Curtin, saying
that be bad always regarded bim us
the man next greatest to Lincoln. Sen
ator John Scott, or Philadelphia, also
spoke very feelingly aad touchingly,
but it was left for Colonel A. K Mc
Clure to pay the most tonching fare
well tribute. Iu part, Colonel Mc
Clure said:
Governor Curtin laid down the policy
of this govenment. In bis first inaugural
address be laid down tbe policy that gov
erned nation tbrongh all that disastrous
war and every line he then said was ful
filled in blood and crystallized with tbe
saving and prosperity of this nation.
Governor CnrtiD, we tell you is dead. He
bas passed from among us, but he is not
dead. There will be a porpetnal spring
time, a perpetual renewal of life. God
lias created nothing that dies, and bore
over the bier of our loved one is tbe place
to declare it Tbe soul will live immortul
forever. Tbe sun may sink behind the
bill tops, and we call it night. And bo tbe
night bas come. We carry tbe body of
Uovernor Cnrtin to the tomb today, bnt
from generation to generation bis memory
and bis example will be as bright stars of
light to every lover and worshipper of a
free government.
Senator Wallaoe paid a glowing trib
nte, and la closing said: "If you would
behold bit monnmentlook around you,
it is here among those people." Tho
meeting was closed by brief addresses
by Eon. Jobn J. Bailey, of Hunting
don, who served as a member of the
constitutional convention with Gov
ernor Cnrtin and General J. P. S.
Gobin, of London. At the close of tbe
citizens' meeting the remains, under
escort of a gnard of honor, aomposed of
Company P, National Guards Penn

members of Gregg post No. 03. Grand
Army Republic, of this place, in charge
of Captain Jobn C Miller, were taken
to tbe court house, where they lay in
state until nearly 2 o'clock. During
this time they were visited by thou
sands of the ex-governor's fellow-citi-ten's
and many friends from abroad,
PATHETIC INCIDENTS.
One of tho pathetio incidents ot this
hour wss the march of tbe 1,000 school
children of Bellefonte past tbe casket
to take a parting farewell, and very
few of tbem indeed tbere were who
failed to drop a silent tsar. In death,
is the cold, silent form reposed in the
handsome saaket, Governor Curtin
looked very natural, even lifelike. His
features were composed as if in sleep,
and one almost expected to see the
magnetio eyes again open and hear
words of wisdom flow from the lips
now cold in death.
At 10:45 tbe body was taken back to
the Cnrtin residence and tbe religious
services commenced promptly al 2
o'clock. Tkey were opened with the
reading of an appropriate selection and
prayer by Dr. Robinson, of Allegheny,
after which Rev. Dr. Laurie, the pas
tor in charge, delivered a beautiful
and affecting sermon tonching on the
many noble qualities ot tbe deceased.
Following Dr. Laurie, Dr. Robinson
made a brief address, bearing particu
larly on the life of Mr. Cnrtin when
be knew bim in Harrisbnrg as gover
nor of this commonwealth.
THB FUNERAL PROCESSION.
It was just ten minutoi of 8 o'elook
When tbe procession, beaded by the
Second Brigade band, of Pittsburg,
playing "Tbe Dead March." moved on
its way to the cemetery about a halt
MOURNING
mile distant. The procession was fnlly
a mile and a half in length. The
streets were a ran 89 of humanity and
every window for squares and all along
the route was packed fall. When the
whole of the procession arrived at tbe
cemetery it was packed with Immunity
and it was difficult to get to tbe grave.
The remains were taken in charge by
Charles Gregg Post, No. 93, of this
place, of wbieh Mr. Cnrtin was the
only honorary member, and interred ac
cording to the ritual of the Grand
Army. Commtnder Thomas H. Dona
chy officiated, assisted by the post chap
lain. The remains were interred be
side tbe grave of tbe dead governor's
son, who died when, an Infant in the
year 1857. It is one of the most beauti
ful spots in central Pennsylvania.
At tbe close ot the services at the
grave a battalion salute of three volleys
and one cannon were fired by the div
ision, under command of Colonel Cory
yell, of Williamsport.
INCIDENT AT THE ORAVE,
One incident worthy of note which
took place at tbe grave was tbe placing
ot two carnations on tbe coffin before it
was covered in tbe vault by Comrade
Owen Jones, of Pennsylvania Reserve
post 191, of Philadelphia. Ssven years
ago, when Governor Curtin attended
tbe annual reunion of the reserves at
Lancaster, be exactod a promise of Mr,
Jones that when he died the latter
should drop a red flower on his coffln,
and Mr. Jones was here today to fulhil
his promise at that time given.
At the conclusion of the services at
the grave tbe procession re-formed and
slowly and sadly marched back to
town and to tbe various railroad depots.
Though it rained hard all forenoon it
cleared off by 12 o'clock and tbe funeral
took plnco in the brightest sunshine.
Fnlly 8,000 people congregate! to pny
their Inst respects to the old war gov
ernor's memory. In the one hour and
half the body lay ia state in tbe conrt
home jast 4,303 persons passed and
viewed tho remains.

PEMMICAN WAS BAD.
Astrup, tht Norwegian Member of
Pear't Party, Talks of Expedition.
Curistiania, Nor.. Oot. 10. The
Morganhtat publishes today an inter
view with Astrup, who was recently
one of the members of tbe Arctio expe
dition commanded by Lieutenant
Peary. Astrnp spoke respectfully but
reservedly of Lieutenant Peary, and
during tbe course of the interview re
marked that tbe pemmican which was
among tho stores ot tbe expedition was
morn than ten years old, baring been
made tor the Greely expedition, and
was completely spoiled. He attributed
his Buffering from typhoid feyer to
eating tbis pemmican.
Astrup aUo asserted that the party
bad only three sledges which were use
ful, the others having been made in
America upon unsuitable principles.
He said that only three out of eight
donkeys lived until the time they were
wanted, and these became useless in
time, Finally, he asserted that as the
spring advanced the harmony of the
party was no longer of tbe best, tbe
presence of women having a bad In
flaenoe on the concord ot tbe members
of the party.

men ana women are believed to
be bnried by a partly finished
building which fell upon and crushed
to the ground a smaller adjoining
bonse, in Monroe street, between Pike
and Market streets, at 3:45 o'clock tbis
morning. Tbe wind that blew so
strongly from the northeast caused tbe
disaster, but bad workmanship, it is
believed, the result of parsimony, is
mainly responsible for it.
Tbe following is a list of the vietims:

Muny others were sera tched, braised
and Injured less seriously. No one in

Tbe bnilding that fell was newly
built, and was to bays borne tbe num
ber of 74 Monroe. It bad been finished
externally at 4 o'clock yesterday after
noou, when the last nail in tbe roof
was driven. As soon as the workmen
completed their job, they helped the'
owners deck it with flags, in accord
ance with the east side custom, had a
little celebration with beer on the new
roof, and went away well sati3fled, To
day tbe interior was to nave osen
worked on.
FALL OF THE BUILDING,
At 3 45 o'clock this morning a watch
man, Walter Bryan, was standing at
Pike and Monroe streets. He said ho
had been watching a phosphorescent
light in tbe skv right over the new
building, when like a stroke of black
lightening, ns he put it, ho saw the
wall split from the root to the ground.
Iu a moment, daring wich he saw
nothing, tbe building had vanished. It
took several seconds for him to realize
what bad happened. Tbe street was
filled with dust and the air with wild
cries. Rain quickly laid the dust, and
then tbe causo of the shock and roar,
which had aroused the people for
blocks around, was known.
The new building had fallen forward
(northward and westward). It was
seven stories high and bad crashed
down upon a two-story dwelling, No.
73, carrying the smaller structure to
the ground, a mass of debris.
Out of tbe wall of the dwelling No.
70 Monroe street, the falling structure
curried away enongb material to leave
the third-story rooms exposed. The
people in them ran out in dismay, but
were not at all injured.
As tho neighbors ran to the scene
figures were seeu squirming out of the
mass of bricks and niotar. The first to
get ont was Michael Kroner. Others
of bis family followod, but all bad to
be helped ont. When all in sight were
got out, groans were beard in certain
places, and here the crowd dug away
to save tbe bnried. Four more were
extricated, more or less injured, in a
short time. Then tbe firemen arrived
and went to work systematically, sav
ing all the list of injured and others
not named, whose wounds are slight.
One by one tho dead were carried out
and laid in the midst of the frantic
group of inmates of tbe little house,
No. 72, to be identified.
THE WORK OF RESCUE.
All through the forenoon the firemen
and a gang of laborers, under T. D.
Gallagan. the authorized excavator
lor snoh disasters, dug in the rains,
At 12 o'clock the firemen heard dis
tinctly till moan of a man in tbe ruins
under tbeir feet It was a dangerous
place, and the work of recovering and
releasing the man below bad to ba done
slowly. It was not long, however, be
fore a hole wns made tbrongh which
he could be beard breathing huskily.
A fireman asked bim if be was all
right.
"Yes, bnt help me, wosthe answer,
A few minntes more digging and tbe
man was drawn out Dr. Roberts of
tbe Gonverueur hospital said he was
only slightly injared externally. The
man's name is Jacob Karoner, 25 years
eld. He bad been given up as dead by
bis relatives.
At the same moment, in another
part of tho rnins, ths hand and arm of
one body and the trnuk of another
were reached. These wore not taken
out for an hour.
Members of tbe families who crowd
ed around tbe pile ot ruinB, ran 'back
pale and frightened, when they heard
the sounds. It was only tbis borror,
that could keep tbem away. Tbeir
bleeding beads and faees they did not
heed, though some of them ongbt to
have gone to the hospital. All the in
mates of the house were of two fami
lies, the Karoners and the Abrams.
STRUCK BYA TRAIN.
Sir. Hopkins a Viotlm of ths Qrada
Crossing at Factoryville.
ffrecial to tht Seranton Tribune.
Factoryville, Oct. 10. Our town
was startled shortly after noon today
by the announcement tbat another
viotim of tbe railroad crossing had
been added to tbe large list of thoBO
having already met death or injury on
the railroad crossings in tbis vioiuity.
Mr. Hopkins, an aged gentleman of
Benton, while driving to bis borne was
struck on the Benton street crossing by

horse was killed, the wagon wrecked
and Mr. Hopkins b.idly injured. He
was taken to tbe home of bis foster
daughter, Mrs. A. B. Eought, of this
place.
This is the seoond crossing acoident
at this place this season, the first being
fatal, and yat tbe company affords no
protection for life or limb, but go on
raisins its trncks, making the cross
ings more difficult to get over.
Mr. Hopkins was tbe husband of Mrs.
Hopkins, who committed suicide by
banging a few years ago.

Washington, Oot. 10. The Repub
licans are expecting a good deal from
Virginia in this cumpaign. Tbere is a
hard fight being made in nearly every
district, aad ont of the general result
the Republicans expect to gain several
congressmen.
Ex-Rapresentative Brady, prominent
ns the leader of the anti-Mabone Re
publicans of that state, aud one of the
best informed men of his party in tbe
South, said to your correspondent this
morning tbat tbe Kopubiicaus in Vir
ginia were in perfect harmony I for the
first time in a number of years " We
ara sure," he says, "of electing two
members of congress from this state,
one from tbe Petersburg and one from
the Norfolk district, and indications
are that we will eleot three or four.
"Men from all parts ot tbe state
write as to the situation, and tbeir
unanimous verdict is tbat party is in
excellent shape to win. Tbe Mahone
people and my own friends who have
heretofore opposed the Mahone faction
are working in harmony, and tbere is
no trouble in tbe party any where in
tbe state. In the wealthier part of the
state, in the district where the white
vote predominates largely, tbere is
a very strong protection sentiment,
and tbis will be felt in the November
election."
Ex-SenatorMahone, who also Is here,
claims that the Kepablioaus will prob
ably elect five members of tbe honso
from Virginia.

Shanghai, Oct 10.
T IS stated on good authority tbat
a large force of Japanese has been
landed near New-Chwang, at the
hoad of the Gulf of Leao-Ton, and
tbot the capture ot that place within
a few days is regarded as inevitable.
Various local rumors are in circula
tion bere, the most prominent being
that 40,000 Japanese have landed near
Shangbaikwan. The telegraph wires
have been cut, thus hindering com
munication. The report that the Ja
panese have landed near New-Chwang
is classed here ns unreliable.
A letter received here from Tien-
Tsin says that during the projtresB ot a
large lire tbere on f riday last the
China Merchants' Godown volunteers
protected the settlement and are now
patrolling the streets from sunset to
sunrise. It is reported that several
Japanese warships have been sighted
oil Taknar.
A dispatch from Tien -Tain today
reports that tbe British and Russian
Ministers have arrived there, and that
they will proceed at ones to Pekin.
A report says that after a skirmish
north of tbe Ynlu river yesterday the
Japanese outposts were driven across
the river. It is announced here that
the repairs to tbo Chinese fleet have
been completed at Port Arthur, and
that tne ti"et will proceed to sea todav,
Yokohama, Oct. 10. A majority of
the Japanese ministry ibave decided
against issuing a foreign loan, but
bavo decided upon a second war loan
of $30,000,000, to be raised in Japan.
This, with the proposed additional taxes,
will bring the government's funds np

WISDOM OF JAPANESE.
London, Oot. 10. Tbe Times com
mentintr npon the report of the capture
ot Cho-Foo by the Japanese and tho
landing of troops at Tarascada, says
that if these reports ara trne tbe Jap
anese bnve at least shown tbeir hands
wisely in deciding to avoid an attack
npon Pekin. Tuey have apparently
decided to attack Port Arthnr. and, it
is stated, have disembarked troops in a
Day to tne northeast ot tbat, piaeo,
wmcu is wen suited to rorra a
base ot operations. The garrison
may now number lO.UOO men.
Like many places provided with ex
travagant coast defenses, Port Arthur
has a back door. In selecting tbis as
tbe place of attack the Japanese are
following tbo bast precedents. Tbe
conditions have many points of resem
blance to those of Sebastoool. The
Japanese should he able to isolate Port
Arthur, and, holding undisputed com
mand of the sea, maintain their own
line of supplies. This being tbe case,
the fall of Port Arthnr should be only
a question of time, Iu face of tbo com
ing winter, which tbe Chinese can bet
ter endure than tbo Japanese, tbe latter
have every inducement to hasten the
attaok, and are unlikely to undertnke
farther operation for the present
The ''Standard" published a letter
from Pekin stating tbat Li Hnng
Chang's nephew, Li Ching Chn Sherg,
the Total and Yuan, another official,
are charged with selling 250,000 piculs
ot Chinese rice to Japan in the early
part of the year. The rice was sent
one of the country by moans of duty
free passes, which were obtained under
tbe pretext that the rice was for the
relief of famine snllsrers in (Jorea. Tbe
letter adds that the public demands the
execution of the officials as traitors.
RVSSIA HESITATES.
A dispatch to the Times from Simla,
India, says that surprise is felt there
because of the non-reeelpt of ordors to
expedite tbe dispatch of tbe rllle bri
gade to Hong Kong.
A dispatch to the Standard from Ber
lin snys tbat Russia has not yet joined
the European entente for the protection
of Europeans in China. Tbe dispatch
adds that the North German Gazette
comments ironically npon the opinion
ot the American minister in Pekin, who
advises the removal of the wives and
children of foreigners from Pekin to
Shanghai in view ot the probable Jap
anese attack npon the Chinese capital.
Tbe paper says that be bas no means of
learning ot the Japanese movements.
A dispatch to the Times from Ber
lin Bays that Hear Admiral Hollmann

The Standard publishes a telegram
received from a high official authority
in Pekin, whioh states that tbe popu
lace there is quiet There have been
some cases of rndeness to foreigners.
There are no signs of special animos

The only place where you can get
your umbrella re-covered while you
wait One who discards a hand
some umbrella handle, one to the
form and symmetry of which
possibly he has become attached
uud an entirely perfect frame, sim
ply because the cover has become
torn or has worn into unsightly
holes does not, what is doue in
three caws out of four, but tho
most natural thing, which is,
destroy it. The cause of this sort
of wastefulness heretofere an ex
cuse which never can be urged
again has beeu entirely due to
the trouble aud expense of having
a new cover put on the old frame.
No one thinks of the umDrella
until it is needed, the holes in itare
only remembered when it rains.
But if the careful owner gives heed
to its condition the trouble of find
ing a re iablo repairer and the
usual cost of the job are such as to
deter one from a repetition of the
experiment. Tho average travel
ing umbrella mender is the moat
monumental of delusions, his work
ia only too apt to leave the uniber
ella much tho worse for his atten
tion. In our patent adjustable uniherellu,
cover we have an invention that
forever removes all excuse for this
waste of good handles and frames
and does so in a practical, direct
way that cannot fail to commend
itself to the most exacting, Thi'
cover ia sor" constructed of such
sizes, shapes and qualities that no
matter what the frame nor what
the taste of its owner, a suitable
cover may be bought for from 65c.
to $.'1.00, and they are so construct
ed that tho least practical person
can adjust it in few miuutes aud
have an umbrella in every par
ticular aa good as new. No novel
ty in the umbrella trade put upon
the market in the last decade has
met with fuch immediate success
as has this adjustable cover of
which we have the sale agency
for this city.
