Liverpool is a city of the greatest im
portance in the kingdom , it never up fi
to the present time has been erected
into a distinct and separate see. The
fact that it should be has been felt
for a considerable time by the govern
ment , and by the ecclesiastical au
thorities it was recently resolved to
take this step without further delay ,
ospeciaUy as it waa believed that
Christ's church in the midst of the
host of , population of that great sea
port would be thus decidedly promot
ed. The last creation of a see pre
vious to Liverpool was St. Albans in
1877- Exclusive of the new see the
list Includes Canterbury , York
London , Durham , Winchester , Ban
ger , Bath , Wells , Carlisle , Chichester ,
Exeto- . Gloucester , Bristol , Hereford ,
Hetchford , Lincoln , Standoff , Man
chester , Oxford , Petorboro , Ripen ,
Rochester , St. Albans , St. Aeaph , St.
Davidi , Salisbury , Worcester , Sader
and Mom. The ceremonies of the
day took place in the Protestant ca
thedral , a structure built to serve the
temporary purpose of a permanent
cathedral. Bishops and the clergy
were largely represented and took
part in the services , dressed in full
canonicales. The display was witness -
ed by a brilliant and crowded congre
gation. The new candidate for this
high ecclesiastical honor had been
ly seated on the throne , which was
placed conspicuously in the building.
The queen's representative read the
writ commanding this installation to
be made , and tbe candidate was offic
ially invested with the robes and dig
nities of his office. The new sea is
composed of the city alone , Liver
pool having hitherto been a part of the
see of Manchester.
The house of commons last evenin
by a vote of 303 against 299 adppte _
Mr. Gladstone's resolution permitting
Bradlaugh to affirm.
The house then divided on Mr.
Sullivan's amendment personally ex
cepting Bradlau h from the right to
affirm , which was rejected.

city limits of Omaha during the month
of June , 1880 ; advertising to be com
puted by the square of tan lines , non
pareil measurement. Proposals for
job work to bo based on the classifica
tion of the preceding year.
Mr. Dailey moved to amend by
striking out that portion regarding
the circulation.
Mr. Kennard opposed the amend
ment on the ground that if the city
advertised at all , she should advertise
in the paper that had the largest cir
culation and that this was a proper
method of ascertaining that relative
condition of the various papers. Wo
want our advertisements to reach the
people , and there was but one paper
through which that object could be
Mr. Boyd thought that the amend
ment was a good one. There was but
one paper in the city that would com
ply with such a requirement , TUG
fADA BEE , and the other papers
would be practically cut out.Ve
already know enough about the circu
lation and the proper time to give
that subject consideration will be
when the bids are in.
Mr. Dodge vratmly opposed the
amendment , and gave good reasons for
so doing. Ho wanted the advertising
to reach the greatest number possible.
This it would not do in The Republi
can or The Herald , which issue 400 or
500 copies daily. The official paper
of the city was not widely read , and
men had asked him about advertise
ments which had been published and
never seen. On the principle advo
cated by Mr. Diiley and others , ad
vertising might as well be done by
posting up two or three written no
Mr. Labagh didn't want the circu
lation clause inserted , and he would
Eight it to the bitter end.
Other membera of the 'council
spoke at length , the general tenor of
the advocates of the amendment be
ing an admission of the fact the BEE
circulation exceedcl that of all other
papers in the city combined , but that
it was not fair that that matter should
39 allowed to cut out the others.
Tbe resolution as amended was

Severe and Probably Fatal In
juries Received.
About 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon
Dr. Mercer's hospital received into iU
keeping a man terribly injured , by an
unforeseen and unavoidable accident.
The ] man was August Grim , and
pa found on his person indicate
th he is a discharged soldier who
bad probably turned tramp from
necessity. : He is about 35 years of
The accident vhich resulted in his
finding a way to his present quarters ,
occurred between two and three
o'clock yesterday afternoon jnst west
oidi theswitch house at Spoon Liko.Tho
dummy was making its regular run at
the time and from the engineer , Mr.
tltt Deland , we learn the particulars of
the affair. Tha man was
first seen standing by
the track. As the train approached
him , be stepped upon the ttack and
began . walking towards the transfer
depot. The engine was at that time
within 75 yards of him and had just
been cut off from the ferry cars. It
was running at a high rate of speed
iib order to mike tha running switch ,
by ; which the "Metamora" is tentinto
its landing. A warning whittle waa
given and repeated , but the man paid
giC2 attention to it. The engineer
called for brakes , but brakes could
not be set , as the ferry was detached
from the coach , and had it beoru stopped - ,
ped a collision and perhaps loaa of life
matt have resulted. In less time than
takes to write tbh , every means cf
saving the unfortunate victim WM ex
hausted and the Iccomotivo struck
him ! in the back , knocking
him into the ditch. The train
irasstoppad 100 yards further on , and
the engineer ran back and found the
man doubled up and entirely uncon
scious. : He was taken up and placed
the shade beneath a car , until a
ipecisl engine arrived about 15 min
utes later , and brought him to Omaha ,
when he was conveyed at once to the
hospital. Here the injuries were
Found to be almost entirely internal ,
only a slight contusion in the lower
part of the left leg being visible. His
internal injuries are severe and may
prove fatal.
