pastor of the Roman Catholic church
of the Holy Trinity , of this city ,
started out to give his altar boys their

must have tried to cross his bow
Boats were lowered immediately and
tfe preservers thrown overboard.
There waa a great lack of nerve and
system in the matter of rescuing so
: ar aa the officers of "Ih'a Garland are
concerned. It appears that the Ma
mie was struck on the quarter , and
went down almost instantly.
An officer of the Garland , or oni >
appearing to be in authority , cursed
these who were throw ing over life pre
servers and made them stop it , but a
negro employe of the boat seemed to
have more nerve than anyone else be
longing to the b sat and set to work
throwing over life preservers.

Evening News , and a level headed ,
courageous young mm , snys-he was on
the Garland , sitting at the bow. when
the accident occurred. He says the
Garland was runniug straight down

Garland , put her wheel over and shot
across the bow of the Garland , when
she was struck and went down. There

as her engineer says. All testimon ;
thus far shows the night to nave beei

should ba adopted to secure to every
citizen the privilege of enjoying bis

etfoct of pointing out the line beyond
which official authority can not ven
ture with impunity. The action of
' 79 will not need repeating. The
nomination of Hancock lifted them
above local distractions to national
ground and blotted out alienations.
After stating that all differences arc
buried , in strong terms the oddrest

for harmonious action. It then sayc
all they contended for haa been

YORK , Neb. , July 22. To-day the
the n'rst dirt was thrown for the new
Conference Seminary at York , and
the occasion was both eloquent and
festive. Nearly all tbe stores in town
locked doors and the lively town of
York , burse , foot and dragoon , ware
transported to the campus. The band
first paraded the ttroetsas a signal foi
movement , and then the livery and
pedestrians took a lively eacspade tc
to the hill at the east edge of town ,
where the ceremony was to take place.
The choir selected for tie occasion
discoursed some excellent selection !
of music , and speeches were made by
Rev. 0. S. Harrison , the Congrega
tional pastor of the place , and Rev.
D. F. Rodabaugb , M. E. presiding
elder. The next in the programme
was to remove the first dirt of thi
excavationfor the-foundation walls.
The honor waa acccorded to tbe ladies
of the townbut np rose a gray-haired
pioneer of. eighty years' and offered
them five dollars if they would con
cede to him that privilege. Then com
menced the bidding which decided the
privilege-In favor of W. D. Meade ,
a newcomer , the price being fiftees
dollars. "Father" Beecher , the 6wt
bidder , moved the second shovelful
for five dollars. The ladles of Yorl
are undertaking to lay the foundation ,
and for a start in raising money hole
an ice cream festival on the ground
immediately after the ceremonies.
The liquor question still makes dif
ficnlty in York. A man who was ar
rested for selling liquor without li
cense - last winter , auanlted a max
who'jfave evidence against him. To
day he'waa brought np on the chargi
of assaulting | * witneis , and fined" 821

trial was over , two of his pals huntei
ap tbewitness and "sailed into him' '
gain. Other cUizensJnterfered , am
toe two bnllys wera leverely deal

this melee are badly mutilated abon

the affray was over the two men fie

followed by the city marshal and tw
policemen , armed with warrants fo
their arrest. It is not yet know
