THE BUILDING COLLAPSED
Horrors Attending the Accidctt Arc
REMOVING BODIES OP VICTIMS
81s Uave Bmi Takes Oat Already ead
Many More Are Still the
Maiaa-Uate of tho Cor
NewYork. Aug. . The horrors at
tending the collapse of the eight-story
structure at the corner of West Broad
way and West Third street yesterday
were not lessened but Intensified today,
by .the finding of three more bodies,
making six dead as far as known. And
to add to the calamity not all the miss
ing have been accounted for. As a re
sult, many anxious friends and rela
tives hover near the scene, awaiting
Just a grain of hope to relieve them of
the dreadful suspense. The ordeal Is
a fearful one. and not - a few stout
hearts trembled In the preseuce of bo
much distress and misery.
The work of removing the debris Is
necessarily slow, owing to the heavy
weight of Iron beams, braces, brick
ceilings and mortar. The workmen
have not yet reached the spot where
most or the bodies are believed to be
lying. The workmen who lost their
lives are believed to- have been in or
near the center of the building when the
crash came, and most of the bodies are
expected to be found near the center
of the pile of debris.
That there are many bodies beneath
the ruins there Is no doubt. But one
of the' men reported to have been lost
has reported himself alive, and It Is be
lieved that there are at least nine
bodies which will be discovered before
the ruins have been turned over by the
workmen. The work will continue with
out a moment's Intermission until It Is
completed. There will be a day gang
and a night gang. It Is thought that
several of the bodies will be found be
fore night fall.
The coroner's Inquest, at which an
endeavor will be made to fix the blame
for the disaster, will be held on Aug. 16.
The Jury will be composed of civil engi
neers and business men. Today It was
learned that Michael Farrell. of Ruth
erford. N. J., who was supposed to be
among the missing, had appeared all
right. He escaped from the building as
It fell. The reviewed list of the killed
and missing ere as follows:
Kllled-John Burke, Charles E. Peter
son, John Smith. Michael Flynn, Mi

. TWO MEN DROWNED. '
Their Companions In CapsUod Boat
Are Held to Bail Pending aa Investi
gation of the Affair. .
Cainden, N. J., Aug. . Two men
were drowned this morning by the. cap
sizing of a boat In the Delaware river
opposite here, and two companions are
locked up In the Camden Jail pending
an Investigation into the affair.
The men who lost their lives were
Frank Chamberlain and Benjamin
Wasner, a lawyer, both of Philadelphia.
The men under arrest are William
Fisher and Charles H. Stewart, also of
Philadelphia. The party left the Han
cver street wharf, Philadelphia, late
last night for Timber Creek, where they
expected to camp during the night and
ijfnd today in fishing.
The beat was well stocked with pro
visions and liquor and the men had
bet-n drinking before they left. Wag
ner rowed the boat untit the party ar
rived opposite Spruce street wharf,
shortly after midnight. He then en
deavored to change places with Cham
berlain, and In doing so, the boat was
upr.c-t. As the occupants were thrown
Into the river, Stewart and Fisher suc
ceeded in clinging to the upturned
craft. Chamberlain and .Wagner were
not so fortunate, and after a brief
struggle they sank.
' The crew of a schooner anchored near
the scene noticed the aocldent and low
ering a boat went to the rescue. They
arrived too late to save Wagner and
Chamberlain. The other two men
were taken to the wharf and placed on
shore. Fisher and Stewart were very
much under the Influence of liquor and
were arrested. ,
Th, two men were given a hearing
before Mayor Westcott today. They said
they made every effort to save their
companions, but the mate of the
schooner which rescued the men de
nied this. Mayor Westcott decided to
hold them pending a further Investiga
tion. KILLED BY THE CARS.

- Plttsburir, Aug. ; .-state' Senator
John Upperman has been sued for $25,
00 damages for defamation of char
acter. The papers In the case were filed
late this afternoon In behalf of Thomas
McCaffrey, -well-known real estate
broker, and ex-notary public of Butler
street, Plttsburaj.. The sou grew out
of the defeat of Mr.' McCaffrey's nom

the Forty-third senatorial district. Mr.
McCaffrey is a . prominent : Democrat,
and lias served as notary for number
of years, through several oaangea of ad
ministration. During the last session
of the state legislature the names of
about 200 persons were placed in nom
ination before the senate as notaries.

by Senator Upperman on the senate
floor occasioned great aurprise. It re
sulted, however, in the defeat of Mr.
Mr. McCaffrey had no redress for the
senator's attack on the floor of the sen
ate, but. Senator Upperman is alleged
to have aubmltted to Interview In the
public press, and In one of these he Is
said to have Impugned Mr. McCraf

BISIXE S IS ACTIVE.
Trade Is I'nusaally lively for Midsum
mer Days, According to Reports from
N. Vnrk. Aue. 9. R. G. Dun ft Co.,
in their weekly review of trade, tomor
row will say:
FtiwineM continues unusually active
for midsummer, and though there la
perceptible relaxation there are no
iiuna nf reaction. The one change of
great Importance which the past week
has brought is eminently neiprui m
amicable settlement between coal min
ers and employers In western Pennsyl
vania, Ohio and Indiana. It Is said
that about 100,000 men will have their
ini-rvmied after Oct. 1 by this ad
justment, and while the enlargement of
purchasing power Is of consequence, n
M.ma even more ImDortant that a
chronic cause of controversy has been
removed bv the new agreement as 10
company stores. There Is no Important
changes In crop prospects, and at this
time no news Is eminently good news.
Taken altogether the crops of the year
promise so mueh better than was ex
nooteri a month aero that the effect is
highly encouraging, although the other
crops, except corn, will not be full.
The outgo of gold continues, ana ex
cites some comment, because It Is felt
that the bond syndicate could arrest the
movement at once if It pleased by re
ducing the rate of exchanges.
Wheat has declined a fraction with
vety scanty transactions, the e? tremb
ly small western receipts Influencing
the market for the present more than
the restricted exports. The concerted
withholding of wheat by western farm
ers, If continued, would doubtless affect
the price in the end. but it has already
stopped Atlantic exports almost en
tirely, the amount, flour Included, hav
ing been only 753.SJ0 buehels for the
past week against 2.9S6.436 bushels
for the same week last year,
and when foreign markets have
supplied their needs from other quar
ters the western farmers may find rea
son to regret that they did not ship
their wheat at the ordinary time. Corn
tends to lower prices with more encour
aging prospects, and me expectation
of a heavy corn crop affects prices of
provisions, as might be expected. -
The Industries continue to make prog
ress, and higher prices for Iron and
steel products prove that the supply has
not yet outrun the demand. Bessemer
Iron Is a shade weaker, but grey forge
has advanced about 80 cents.
The anthracite coal market Is com
pletely demoralized, and prices have
again yielded a little to about the low
est ever known.
The failures In July "how liabilities
amounting to SU.7X8.51Q. of which
$2,549,075 were of manufacturing, and
$8,283,173 of trading concerns. Failures
for the week were 225 In the United
States, against 264 last year, and 43 In
Canada against 54 last year.
CROPS RUINED IN KANSAS.
Black Rust and Drought Have Proved
Pntal to Them.
Topeka, Kan.) Aug. ".-Dispatches re
ceived here today from Logan, Thomas,
Trego and other counties in northwest
ern Kansas say that black rust Is ruin

especially In Logan and Thomas coun

entirely destroy It. The drought In the
counties of north central Kansas and
south central Nebraska -continues.
There has not been more than a sprin
kle of rain there since May 30, althougn
the counties round about It have been
deluged frequently. There Is no wheat
whatever and corn will not amount to
a bushel an acre. The burned district
comprises the counties of Washington,
Republic, Cloud and parts of Ottawa,
Dickinson and Saline in Kansas, and
the counties of Thayer, Jefferson and
Gage and parts of Fillmore, -Saline and
Lancaster In Nebraska, In all compris

Boston, Aug. . The ev. James I.

said today concerning the report of
mob violence In Tarsus:
"The St. Paul's American Institute at
Tarsus was instituted Ave or six years

The president of the institute now, who
has been there three years. Is the Rev.

promised to deliver It When the stu

declared they would shoot the man on
the platform If he attempted to deliver
the oration. We were not going to have
mob rule, and the president said the
oration must be delivered. A special

Ins, of Jaekson-Looks Like a Wilde
Jack-on, Miss., Aug. 9. Hon. T. Dab
ney Marshall, senator-elect, from War
ren and Hinds counties, shot and killed
R. T. Dlnklns, of Jackson, at Brandon
this morning. Marshall and three
friends, H. H. Coleman. R. P. Pox and
W. P. Vollens, drove to Rrandon this
morning In a hack and met Dlnklns at
the dppot. As he turned a corner of
the building they opened fire on him
and shot 'him fifteen times. Dlnklns
was unarmed but grabbed Marshall's
pistol from him as he fired the first
phot. The shooting was caused by a
sensational report circulated by Dln
klns. Two weeks ago Dlnklns, It Is
said, spread a report that Marshall had
attempted an Infamous crime while he
and 'Marshall had troomedl together.
This report was damaging, and there
was a cla.mor that Marshall be taken
off the ticket for state senator. Mar
shall denounced the report as a lie, but
Dlnklns stuck to It and everybody
looked for a killing sooner or later.
Marshall Is a little fellow and weighs
about seventy-five pounds. He Is high
ly educated, a lawyer and man of let
ters, and his family Is one of the most
prominent In the state. He has a host
of friends at home and elsewhere. He
has served a term In the legislature.
Dlnklns' family la equally as good.
Marshall and his companions are un
der arrest at Brandon. The affair Is
deeply regretted here, where both men
are well known and highly respected.

The message received today was that
the fellow had been caught and asking

we can lynch him before he dies."

There the monks of Chartreuse manu

Closing Hours of tho Catholle Total Ab
stinence Convention In New York
New York. Aug. 9. The third day's
meeting of the Catholic Total Abstin
ence Union convention began this
morning at 9 o'clock. James McClearv.
president of the union, presided.
The Rev. P. O'Brien, chairman of
the committee on resolutions, mounted
tihe platform. It then developed that
there was a majority and minority re
port. Father O'Brien read the major
ity report, which was a bitter attack
on liquor sellers, and asked those en
gaged in It to give up the business. It
also advocated a strict Sunday excise
law, but made no mention of the beer
brewed by St. Vincent's Abbey, which
it was expected the convention would
The minority report, which was read
by Father Zurcher, was practically the
same save that it attacked St. Vin
cent's Abbey and condemned the Cath
olic Monks for making beer and selling
It. Rev. Father Ward then -moved that
the majority report be accepted, and
that the part of the minority report,
referring to the St. Vincent's beer, be
made a part of it.
A -warm debate followed but finally
the majority report was adopted as
presented. The' next business was the
selection of a meeting place for The
next convention. Mrs. Lake proposed
St. Louis, Mo., and Rev. Father L.
Malone proposed Denver. A vote was
taken and St. Louis was selected by a
big majority. The date fixed was the
first Wednesday in August, 1X96.
Rejtor Father James Cleary, of
Minneapolis,' and J. Washington Logue,
of Philadelphia, were unanimously re
elected president and vioet-president re
spectively of the union. There were
two candidates for the position-of sec
ond vice-president, namely James F.
Brennan, of -Mount Carmel, Conn., and
John O'Brien, of Stillwater, Minn., but
Brennan was elected. 'Mrs. Leonora
Lake, of St. Louis, was unanimously re
elected third vice-president.
The next business was the election of
a treasurer, and Father William Mc
Mahon was re-elected. Rev. Alexan
der P. Doyle, of the Paullst Fathers,
was re-elected secretary. All the newly-elected
officers then came on the
platform and took the obligation of of
fice. The convention came to a close with
prayer by Father Ellicott, of the Paul

the union by the delegates on, their

Miss Tucker Is a school teacher in
the village and has always gotten

Miss Carpenter had been very annoy
