Attention Strict and prompt COI.OHADO Srm .NGS, Col., May 12.—In the presence of representative printers from many distant points of the country, reinforced by the editors and publishers who compose the National Editorial association, and with the recognition of the state of Colorado in the person of its chief executive, the Childs-Drexel Home for Union Printers, the first institution of the kind to be established in the world, was formally dedicated to-day. The weather was in harmony with the event. The town had put on its best bib and tucker for the occasion, and the morning trains brought big crowds from Den- Pueblo and other p'oints to aid making it a gala occasion Over the imposing structure floated the stars and stripes, the. gift of the union printers of Houston, Tex., while inside the various apartments were fragrant with flowers contributed by the ladies of Colorado Springs and Denver. The exercises were inaugurated in the assembly chapel with prayer by Rev. .Tames B. Gregg, after which an adjournment was taken to the main entrance o^ the building and before whiuh an immense throng had gathered. To the right of the chair was Mr. Charles W. Childs, to the left the board of trustees of the International Typographical Union, and directly in front the members of the National Editorial association with their ladies. Governor John L. Routt spoke the address of welcome on behaf of the people of the state of Colorado, Mayor Ira T. Sprague followed suit on behalf of the citizens of Colorado Springs, and Hon. Henry G. Lunt, president of the Chamber of Commerce, expressed the welcome and good will of the business community. All three speakers were loudly applauded. A happy response was mado by President W. B. Brescott of the International Typographical Union, and after music, a history of the home was read by August Donath of Washington, 13. C, president of the board of trustees. The event of the day was a short address made by George W. Childs. When he made his appearance on the speakers' stand it was some time before he was able to proceed because of the deafening cheers and welcome extended to him. JJ« spoke as follows: GKXTI.K.MKN AND LADIES .: I am not unnaturally embarressed in addressing a company of such a distinguished, diversified and representative character. I am profoundly impressed by the generous welcome of the chief magistrate of this common wealth; of the chief magistrate of this affluent, beautiful city, and of the president of your Chamber of Commerce, who have put aside the grave affairs of tate and municipality and the exactions of business to give a greeting to us who have come from long distances to assist in the dedication of this home. It was forty-one years ago that the International Typographical Union was established by and for the members of that honorable craft, whose intelligent minds and skillful hands have disseminated human thought throughout the world Printers' unions have not only spread the light of education and reason over this vast continent; they have given to labor a higher dignity, a broader independence, and all those qualities which render it of the greatest worth. From boyhood, I have been more or less intimately associated with members of the craft, and knowing it so long and so well 1 have naturally sympathized with it, and what little I have been able to do to express my admiration and respect for it has honored me more for doing it than the craft in the reception of it. It Is not the printers who owe me gratitude, the indebtedness is mine. I regret my dear friend and associate, Mr. Drexel, is not here to-day in person to share with me the friendly warmth of your generous greeting. For him, who is here in spirit with me, whose sympathy for all that is good and noble is so great, as well as for myself, I heartily, earnestly thank you. The oration of the day was de livered by Senator J. U. Gallinger of New Hampshire, who lauded the union printers jf the country, and heaped eulogies upon Mr. Childs and Anthony J. Drexel. The oration, which wa .i a masterly effort, was followed by an address by W. P. Capeller, president of the National Editorial association, and after the Star Spangled Bander had been rendered by a quartet, the ben ediction was pronounced. This after noon the visitors will be handsomely entertained by the citizens. The typographical unions of many cities are represented by delegates at the exercises. The first step toward the establish ment of the enterprise dedicated to day was taken at the annual convention of the International Typographic al Union at Pittsburg in" 1880, when that body was the recipient of a check for $10,000, given jointly by Mr. Childs and Mr. Drexel, the gift being absolutely without conditions. At the Denver convention of 1889 it was decided to use the fund, in question afi a nucleus for the establishment of a home for aged and infirm printers, and shortly after a plot of eighty acres of land lying one mile east of Colorado Springs was offered to the Union and accepted. Since 1886 all Union printers have yearly contributed the price of getting np one thousand ems to the fund, the printers west of the Mississippi river making their contributions in honor of Mr. Child's birthday on May 12th, upon which anniversary the building was dedicated. It is an imposing structure, standing on an eminence overlooking the city, and is built of gray lava stone, its total cost exceeding SOO.too. .Several of the rooms have been burnished by the larger Unions, that of California taking the lead. Another room has beon furnished by II. H. Kohlsast of the Chicago Inter Ocean. The building is located one mile from the city, on a small elevation, which overlooks the surrounding country, including the Garden of the Gods, Pike's Peak, Manitou and Cheyenne canon. It is constructed of white lava- stone, with red sand stone trimmings. It cost SHO.000; is four stories in height, Ml feet front, with a depth of forty. Each floor is heated by steam, and lighted throughout with electricity, besides being fitted out with all modem convenience. Among the many beautiful things in the parlors is a magnificent painting of George W. Childs. Tlie library has many volumes, hut it is tlie intention of the managers to make it one of the most complete collections in the west. A fund for the construction of the building was started in 1883, when Geo. W. Childs and A. .1. Drexel of Philadelphia, presented the International Typographical Union thoir joint check for $10,000 To increase this fund it was agreed that on May 12, the anniversary of the birth of Mr. Childs, every Union printer east of the Mississippi river should contribute the price 'of 1,000 ems, ami on September 13, following, the birthday of Mr. Drexel, all union men west of the river shouiu" donate a like sum. Hy this means money was raised to construct this magnificient home. FOREIGN AFFAIRS. A British Libertine Gets a Well Merited Sentence. THE SILVER CONFERENCE OPPOSED. hymns. Mr. . I.

MKMI'IIIS , Tenn., May 12.—This is the great day of the festivities in connection with the dedication of the bridge across the Mississippi and the town is crowded as it has never been crowded before.

The members of the German Maifest, the fire department, displays of local industries, and the attaches of the mu­ ni' pal departments and distinguished visitors bringing up the rear. The procession moved through the principal streets of the city and halted at the bridge, mid while Governor Buchanan of Tennessee, and Eagle of Arkansas clasped hands in the center of the bridge- President Lucas B. Clapp of the taxing'distriot of Memphis, placed his hands upon their hearts and declared the union of the grgat west and the great oast, and can- noil boomed from tlie river, and the great multitude on shore made the air quiver with cheers of southern energy and enterprise. The oration was delivered by Senator Dan Voorhecsof Indiana. Opening with an eloquent reference to the enduring importance of the event, the oration dealt chiefly with subjects natural to such' an occasion. The wisdom, patriotism and foresight of Jefferson in the acquiring of Louisana, the glorious results which it had accomplished; the growth of the south within the last, thirty years and its still brighter future, and finally predicted that the time was not far distant when the burier to navigation between the two oceans—the isthmus of Panama—would be removed. To-night there will be a grand illuminated trades display. The length of the bridge and its approach from Arkansas to Tennessee is three miles. It is in five spans, is built on the cantilever principle, and 9,000 tons of steel have been used in its construction. Its cost has been over three million dollars. Federation of Women's Cluh*.

LONDON , May 12.—Quite a sensation was caused this morning when Hon. Pat Grenville-Nugent brother of Lord Gronville, who was indicted for having assaulted Miss Marion S. Price in a compartment of a railway carriage, pleaded guilty in the North London sessions, of common assault. The accused had repeatedly insisted that the case was one of reported blackmail, and his plea when arraigned wos a great surprise to his friends. The prisoner was sentenced to six months imprisonment at hard labor. Hon. Pat Grenville-Nugcnt is 40 years old, resides at No. 05 Eaton Terrace, Eatonshire. He is deputy lieu tenant and magistrate of county West- tncath, Ireland, and held a high social position. The assault was committed in n car on the London, Uridgeton and South Coast railway, on the night of April 18. The prisoner pleaded in extenuation of the offense, that he was Ijjrnnk at the time. He acknowledged hf hud misconducted himself, but denied thathe had criminally assaulted Miss Price.

The prisoner received the sentence calmly.
