CniCAOO, Nov. 10. Mrs. Mandie
Morgan, who is said to be an impor
tant witness for the prosecution in the
Cronin case, was sandbagged by
an unknown person, and as a result of
the blow is now in a dangerous condi
tion. Mrs. Morgan was returning
from a visit about 9:30 o'clock. To
shorten the distance she walked
through the alley in the rear of the
house. She had just entered the alley
when a person closely wrapped in a
heavy shawl, stepped from the shadow
of the building and dealt her a heavy
blow on the head. Had it not been
for her roll of hair the blow would
probably have killed her. For nearly
an hour Mrs. Morgan was uncon
scious. Upon recovering she de
scribed her assailant as a man dis
guised as a woman. The police are
searching for the person.

PRINTING HOUSES BURNED.
The A. X. Kellogg: Netmp.iper Company
and P. H. Tleroan's Large Job Office at
Kansas City Burned.
Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 11. The
three story brick building at 312, 314
and 316 "West Sixth street, owned by
Peter II. Tiernan and occupied by P.
II. Tiernan, book binder and job print
er, and the A. X. Kellogg Newspaper
Company, were completely gutted by
fire Saturday night. The loss to build
ing and contents will amount to about
$05,000, both being fully covered by in
surance. The origin of the fire is not
known. The alarm was sounded at
9:45 o'clock and by the time the fire de
partment had arrived the entire second
and third floors of the building at 312
West Sixth, occupied by Tieman, was
ablaze. The fire seemed to have start
ed in the middle of tho building
and is supposed to have been
occasionea uy the Heated pipes
in the book publishing company's
rooms. The fire spread rapidly and
seven fire companies from Kansas City,
Mo., and one from Kansas City, Kan.,
seemed at first powerless to check it.
The presses and other machinery in

aged and the type and other appoint
ments are a total loss. Both houses
carried fair insurance.

Colonel Goodloe A Mo a Victim of the Re
cent Deadly Encounter.
Lexington, Ky., Nov. 11. Colonel
William Cassius Goodloe died here yes
terday about one o'clock from the ef
fects of the wound received from
Colonel Swope's pistol in the terrible
encounter in the post-oflice here last
Friday afternoon, in which Swope was
cut to pieces and died. He died peace
fully and painlessly, surrounded by his
family and a few close friends. He
joined the Episcopal Church before he
died and was baptized. The entire city
is in mourning, and the flagon the Gov
ernment building has been put at half
mast. The funeral will he held to
morrow afternoon at two o'clock. All
members of the family were at the
dying man's bedside except Major
Green Clay Goodloe, his brother, who
did not get here until last night.
Goodloe's statement of the difficulty
after he was told ttait he could not live
made Swope the aggressor, as he drew
his revolver and shot Goodloe just as
the latter got his knife open. Goodloe
said that, feeling he had received a
death wound, he cut him until he fell.
Hundreds of telegrams of sympathy
have been received by the family.
ATTEMPT TO KILL.
Editor Refuses a Retraction
Trouble Foil own.
Buffalo, N. Y., Nov. 10. Detective
Kilroy, candidate for street commis
sioner, attempted to kill Norman E.
Mack, editor of the Times, for publish
ing an article last Sunday, charging
him with, having stabbed Thomas Mc
Auliffe over a card quarrel some time
ago. The story was considerably ex
aggerated and Kilroy demanded a re
traction. This was demanded from
time to time until Kilroy went
to the Times office and called
on Mack. A quarrel ensued
and Kilroy rushed at Mack with
his hand apparently on a weapon in
his hip pocket, when Editor Crosby
rushed between them and stopped the
infuriated man. Mack subsequently
went up stairs to the editorial rooms,
Kilroy following and swearing. When
half way up the stairs Detectives
Crowly and Taylor, who had been sum
moned, arrived, and bore the drunken
and infuriated man away. The Times
is out with an article denouncing Kil
roy and preferring further charges, and
further-trouble is expected.

Ten thousand strangers were in
Baltimore to witness the spectacle
four times as many people not count
ing local Catholics as could possibly be
accommodated in the Cathedral where
the initial scenes were to be witnessed.
So great was the pressure for seats that
persons known to have traveled across
the continent from California expressly
to be present were among those disa
pointed in not securing admission. The
old Cathedral that crowns the Charles
street hill had within its walls an as
semblage most notable, and around its
iron picket fence on Charles, Mulberry,
Cathedral and Franklin streets peoplo
thronged in thousands, who watched,
some with interest, others with pride,
the procession of priests and Bishops,
and lingered long after the chant of
the seminarians announced that the
service had begun. Admission to the
church could be gained only by the
tender of a card of invitation. Every
available bit of space within was util
ized, yet thousands of people, visitors
as well as Baltimorcans, had to be shut
The gathering of prelates embraced
two Cardinals, seventeen Archbishops
and seventy-live Bishops. The Pope
was represented in the person of Arch
bishop Satolli of Lepanto, Canada by
Cardinal Taschereau, Mexico Uy
Bishops Montes d'Oca and E. Ante
quaraGillow, England by Bishop John
Virtue, of Portsmouth, and Mgr. Gad, f
oi r.onuon. .ah oi me .Arcnuisiiops in
the United States were in attendance
except Kenrick, of St. Louis, who was
too feeble to travel.
The hall in which the priests assem
bled was elaborately decor.ited. Above
the doors were the Papal colors, yellow
and white and above these stretching
upward to the caves were great stream-
ers of red, white and blue. When all
was ready, COO clergy, walking two and
two, emerged clad in white surplices
and black cassocks and berettas.
Presently, while the white surpliced
priests were opening ranks a mass of
purple enveloped figures were seen in
the Cardinal's doorway. It was the
gathering of nearly all the Catholic !
Bishops and Archbishops of the United .
States, with representatives from Mex-
ico, Canada, England and Borne. '
Within the Cathedral, ten minutes,
later,the scene was simply magnificent, .
Tho pews throughout 'the church were
crowded to the utmost with laity.
The solemn pontifical mass was be
gun at 11:15 with the following offi
ciating: Celebrant, Archbishop Wil
liams, of Boston; assistant priest, Bev.

OI JJaitimOre: SUl)
deacon, Father Duffy, of Brooklyn;
master of- ceremonies, Rev. J. S. Mc
Callen, of Montreal, and assistants,
Fathers Whelan and Biordan, of Balti
more. Probably the most impressive part of
the mass, next to the consecration, was
the confarring of the Papal blessing.
The venerable Archbishop at the altar
seemed to feel it a doubly solemn mo
ment when, turning to the congrega
tion, he paused an instant and while
the people in the church knelt he raised
his hand and slowly made the sign of
The mass ended with special inter
cession for the Pope chanted by all the
clergy. It was 1:45 p. m. when the
"Ite Missa Est" was said. The first
oration of the centennial ceremonies
began. It was deli'cred by Archbishop
By an, of Philadelphia, whose fine pres
ence and magnetic eloquence, in spite
of the long ceremonial preceding,
held his hearers for an hour
and a half. The patriotic spirit of the
Archbishop's address and his tribute
to the recent devotee of the colored
people and Indians seemed to awaken
general enthusiasm, but the most tell
ing effect was aroused when he vindi-
l catcd the rights of Catholic editors, if
need be, to freely comment on the fail
ings of the clergy.
After this the benediction was given
and the procession of clergy moved out
down Cathedral street to Mulberry, to
the Cardinal's residence, where ranks
In the evening the scene at the Ca
thedral was a re-enactment of the

by pluralities ranging from
Theso conclusions are
meager returns ana
i mostly by estimates, but are believed
to be reliablo within tho pluralities
which are given. The Republican com
mittee has not riven up entirely and do
not think Campbell's plurality will
; reach over 10.000, and tho rest of the
State ticket will not bo elected by more
than 2,000 or 3.000 plurality.
The Republican committee, though,
does not think that tho complete figures
will bo suiliciently favorable to save
any part of its ticket. l?oth committees
and chairmen seem to be agreed that
the Democrats will carry tho Legisla
ture in both branches. It is not probable
the figures, as agreed upon, as to mem
bership will bo changed from those
which have already been announced,
though some counties aro doubtful.
From the best at hand, gathered from
both headquarters, the House will
stand: Sixty-ono Democrats and fifty-
threo Republicans; and tho Senate nine
teen Democrats and seventeen Repub
licans. This would give the Democrats
a majority of ten on joint ballot.
