DID XOT LXrECT CATHOLICS TO HISS Hie Total Abstinence ConTentlon Free - from Cult and Cant Striking Feature of It Personnel. ! IISCLT OF SISD1T CL0SI5C OF S1L00XS father O'Caltashaa Sara the P?Ht Beea Beaellted Cathollo Papers Criticised A Recaption. The politicians ot boll) th great political parties who havs .been all alone assuming that the mass of votes In this city would be cast In favor of open saloons on Sunday are slowly recovering from the effect of the reception which Senator T. C. O' Sullivan's speech received from the Catholic Total' Abstinence Union delegates on Wednesday evening in Carnegie Hall. . This was the ' second great check which those anxious to conciliate the saloon element of t1- community encountered. The first., blow ' . i delivered through the columns of The New-York Times, when Interviews were printed with men ot all classes and callings upholding the course taken by President Roosevelt In enforcing the excise law. These interviews proved conclusively that law-breaking by saloon keepers snd their Sunday customers Is offensive to the moral sense of the community. The complete breakdown ot" Senator O'SulUvan's plea for Sunday drinking is all the more bewildering to the politicians, because of the personality snd attributes of the man who made It. Senator O' Sullivan Is a devout Roman Catholic and a man highly respected by those who know, him for his Integrity and sincerity of character. He possesses the gift of oratory to. a mors effective degree than any present member of Tammany Hall, with one exception. Host of those In Carnegie Hall Wednesday night who live In this city have, or used to have, the same political affiliations as he had.- There was, therefore, everything In favor of his hsvlng at least a respectful hearing, with the oratorical chance of turning a hostile meeting Into a neutral or a friendly one before his speech was ended. -, Tet Mr. O'Sulllvan, the orator, was hissed and cried down until It needed the Interposition of Archbishop Corrigan .to restore quiet for a premature peroration by the speaker, while Mr. Roosevelt, without any graces of delivery, was able to hold .the same audience spell-bound as long as he pleased. t No politician has hitherto seriously considered the possibility of rousing the conservatism of the Roman Cathollo Church and of forcing It to. place Itself on one or the other side of the political line, according to the temperance ' planks In the various party plat forma Tet the Catholic Total Abstinence Union already contains the flower of the priests and of their flocks, and the movement of the Catholic Church In this country towsrd adeflnite side on the temperance question Is every day gaining momentum. Nothing was so striking about the dele-gstes who met yesterday In, Columbus Hall e tne absence of either cult or cant In their spperance. The type of ascetic who crucifies his own flesh by a meagre diet of gruel and water was not anywhere to be seen. The dyspeptic who wishes to keep others from doing what lie cannot do himself was notably absent from the gathering. Even the reformed drunkard, who glories In his former shame In order that he may set himself up ss an example, had no chair placed for him on the platform at yesterday's meeting. . Nor were the delegates made up of precocious boys and girls, who had found a mission In Hfe'by setting their conduct up as a reoroof to their elders. There wss not a single woman present whose dress or rhose manner would convey the meaning of the epithet. " strong minded." There has perhaps never been a gathering of delegates for anything In this city where so few spectacles and eyeglasses were to be seen. To descrfoe the delegates positively Is difficult, because of the absence of the usual tags which signify adhesion to some particular movement. Without their temperance badges, csrrylng a ' medal with a head of Father Matthew, they might all hsve gone down Broadway and no one could are picked them out as delegates to the onventlon Of the Cathollo Total Absti-aence Union. It was nftlceable that, while a large number or the 600 delegates -must' have been Irish, either by birth or descent, the Irish face as It Is caricatured was not to be seen. The Irish ancestry of the girls was apparent through their Quick wit, their roguish smiles, their sharp ears, and their Point-blank repartee. Adding blue eyes and ark hair made the diagnosis certain. The men all looked like substantial, active American citizens, with more than the uual geniality of manner. : Some of the younger ones had the quick, sharp motions 'engendered by business habits learned In a o-ehead store. The elder men were many f them stout, without pufflnesa, and en-lwd Into the spirit of their work like n of affairs. Twelve of them taken at random would have made a ' model Jury the trial of an Important case. The perfect equality between the dele-was a tfflng , memorable In Itself, "hits and black, men and women, priests ad laymen, carried themselves In their rotations with each other like people ideally - wed. The priests were the leaders. not the bosses." There was more suggestion than peremptorlness In the ws given by the Chairman. While the J"1 W gave action to the proceedings. w elders put on the brake, which comes waai the wisdom of experience, yet so a .Uy wr'11 interests harmonised to eoranion purpose that everything moved Jjhout friction. J a other respect was the meeting Wttarkable. There waa a complete ab-Tuj 01 th ,etl"tl fce and manner, tfel bUnnc seemed to be a rule of asong those present, which was ob-fce l,.r,Ul0ut th nrss of guilt or tIon of repentance.

Aug.j a A; dispatch to Lloyds from Sydney. New South Wales, says that the British steamer Catterthun, bound from Sydney for Hongkong, ran on the Seal Rocks, which He between Sydney and Brisbane, and became a total wreck. The dispatch adds that some of the passengers and crew were saved, but that a number of persons are missing.; A Central News dispatch from Melbourne says that the vessel struck at 2 o'clock In the morning. It was soon seen that there was no possible chance to save the vessel, and orders were given to abandon ship. ; All hands took j to the small boats, and laid their courts for mainland. One ot the boats reached Forster this morning, but the others have not been heard from, and It Is feared that they have been lost. There was a large number of Aust;-ali:m and Egllsh passengers on the steamer. Cable dispatches from Melbourne say that the Catterthun struck at 2:45 o'clock In the morning, and sank twenty minutes later. The passengers who are supposed to be lost are Mrs. Mathlas. Mrs. Loring, Mrs. Smith, Miss Lorlng; and Robert Fraser. f At the time tbe vessel struck a heavy southwest gale was prevailing. When the vessel hit there was a severe shock. that could be felt In every portion of her. The passengers were greatly alarmed, and there was much confusion. The Captain reassured them, saying that there was no danger. He thought thej steamer had only been struck by a heavy sea. ; The ship continued on her way, but before many moments had elapsed It was found that she was. leaking rapidly; . j . .' . (She began to settle down, and took on a list to itarboardj The fires under her boilers were soon extinguished, and the vessel was then helpless. She broached, to, and the seas swept over her fore and aft. Every effort made to lower the boats was bam;d by the' seas, which swept them inboard after they bad been swung out on .the davits. I i ;j The ort lifeboat was lost entirely. It being swept from; the da vita Notwithstanding the! dangerous position of the steamer, .Which It was now seen was Coomed, excellent discipline was maintained. During an attempt to lower the starboard cutter a tremendous sea; broke aboard the steamer and carried away! the cutter.; It also swept from the bridge the Captain and chief and second officers and Cape Fawkes. ti The last named having been in able to reach his cabin to obtain a life lei t, had borrowed the Captain's knife, end was In the act of cutting the lashings of a small table an the bridge when lie was swept off into the sea. A few minutes later, after a great effort, tbe starboard lifeboat was lowered and it picked up Capt. Fawkes, who was clinging to some floating wreckage. Only three other Europeans were rescued. These were Seconii Mate Tanfear. Dr. Copemsn, and a passenger named Crane ef Melbourne. ,i Later dispatches say that the Seal Rocks are 110 miles north of Sydney. The Catterthun, in addition; to her general cargo, had on board ll.ouu sovereigns. nMrs. Mathlas, wife ot the Captain of the Steamer Cam. trading between London and Japanese ports, bad been at Sydney visiting friend. When the Catterthun cast oil her lines at the wharf yesterday Mrs. Mathias's niece was on the wharf crying bitterly. She said to her aunt: "Oh. Auntle.l you'll be drowned! I will never see you again." - 1- . MThe officers of the Catterthun were English -and the crew were Chinese. v-JCatapatch from Melbourne, received this evening, -says-that -divers have left -there for the scene of the wreck for tho purpose of attempting to; recover the 11,000 sovereigns in specie on board the steamer. The dispatch further says it is now known that the total number of lives lost In the disaster is nftyVfour, many of the Chinese passengers and crew being saved. Of the Europeans on board only the five previously mentioned survive, i i i The Catterthun; belonged to the Eastern and Australia Steamship Company of London. She was built at Sunderland in 18)S1 by W. iDoxford & Sons. Her length was 302 feet 3 inches, beam S3 feet 5 inches, and depth of hold 23 feet 7 Inches. She was schooner rigged and of 2.179 gross and 1,406 net tons burden. I Her engines were of the compound type of 2o0 horse power.

Belief that President Cleveland Will Appoint m New-York Masu j WASHINGTON, Aug. 8. There Is already much speculation here concerning, the vacancy on the Supreme Court bench, created by the" death of Justice Jackson. The Impression became quite general at the time of the reargument ot the Income tax cases that the Justice, who had come" from Tennessee especially to be present at the hearing, was j much Improved In health,; and would be kble to resume his duties In the Fall.' It Is now known that from the time of his return to his home from Washington he steadily declined.. In the two years that he waa connected with the court he made many friends, and there is sincere sorrow" over the news of his death. ' j The names mentioned in connection with the vacancy cover a wide range. Justice Jackson presided over the Sixth Judicial Circuit, comprising Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, and Tennessee. His predecessor. Justice Lamar, was assigned to the Fifth District, 'embracing Alabama, , Floridaj Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas After Justice Jackson took his seat njthe bench there was a rearrangement of districts." It is said that he was much pleased with his assignment. Inasmuch as It brought him Into close relations with court oincia.t with whom he had long been acquainted. It is taken for granted that the President will wish to nominate a New-Yorker to tht vacant position. New-York Is not now represented on the Supreme bench for reasons that are well known to' the country W. B. Hornblowex and. Wheeler H. Peck-bam were rejected by the Senate at tht instance, 'of Senator Hill, and the question Is now being asked whether the condition In the Senate have changed sutficientlv to warrant the President in naming agali, either tf these men. 1 By his course -on the Tariff bill Senator Hill lost the support of several Democratic Senators who had supported him in i.hic. flg-ht against i the confirmation of Messrs Hornblower and Peck ham, and doubt is expressed, of his ability to again deteat the President's will in case the latter shoulu decide to bestow the honor upon one 01 the other ef these men. Friends of Senator Hill add that the situation in New-York has changed so materially since the timt Mr. Hill set up his opposition to the President that : the Senator would not find it politic to repeat that performance. i 1 The namesvof Frederic R. Coudert. Jamei C. Carter; and others prominent at ttht New-York- bar are heard in the discussion about the vacancy. The fact that the district presided over by the late Justice .jack son did not Include New-York has no particular bearing on the tiuestion of hia feuc cessor. It would be easy - for trT Chiei Justice tor revise the list of circuits if e New-York man should be selected. i The possibility of Secretary Carlisle belnr transferred from the Treasury to1 the : Su preme bench is included In the gossip. The same talkwas indulged in when Mr. Cleveland had to fill the vacancy caused by th death of Justice Blatchford. Mr. Carlisle! friends do; not regard the Idea with favor They entertain the hope that he will returr to the Senate. It is known to a few that Senator Gray or Delaware-was greatly disappointed wher Senator White of Louisiana secured th' place on the bench which had been denies' ,to Messrs'.; Hornblower and Peckham.- For some time it ; was believed that Mr. Gaj would.be asked to take the nomination, aw" there is no doubt that he would have i ac cepted. His name now occurs - to person: who know something of the unwritten history surrounding the long delay In nllin Justice Dlatchford's place. Mr. Gra Isstil-in Europe.' - i - - - i Justice Jackson was unable to attend t-his duties-In the last' three months of ; hi' life, with 1 the result that many lmportan' cases Intrusted to him remain undisposed of. Other, cases were ordered to be heW over ' until ' October, when it was though' there would be a full court By reason of this accumulation of business in the court it Is assumed In some quarters thatl'hr President will not find It expedient to wail until Congress shall assemble before filling the vacancy. ! j PRESIDENT CLEVELAND GRIEVED.

In a fair clubtopsall sailing freeze and a rolling sea, the 'Defender defeated the Jubilee to-day 9 minutes 19 seconds. The race was sailed over a triangular course, the same as the course used in the race for the Drexel Cupsv. , The first leg was to the Whistling Buoy off Point Judith, seven miles away. .Then the yachts went to the eastward frjr seven miles, turning a stakeboat, ( and then came back to the finishing line. j. , ' The fact that the Vigilant was not. In the race had taken all the Interest out of the contest.' It was a foregone conclusion that the Defender would easily defeat the Jubilee. Gen.. Palne's boat j is In no shape to race. Her sails all sit poorly and her oialnsall Is baggy; her headsalls do not lt at all well, particularly the. staysail,, and her clubtopsall Is very full and loose. In the Drexel Cup race on Tuesday the Defender over this same course defeated che Vigilant 9 minutes 9 seconds, and, considering the way the Vigilant has defeated Jie Jubilee, some think that in : to-day's i-ace the Vigilant would have given the Defender a hard tussle. ' i A slight mishap happened to the Defender near the finish of the race.'. The lacing on the club of her topsail parted, and jthe sail jroke loose Just as she crossed the line it the finish. It was Just as well that the .ace was ended after the first round; If she aad had to go round again; the clubtopsall A-ould have had to be . lowered, ind the Jubilee would have been enabled to gain considerably. j . . : This was the first day's racing, of the -Vewport week. About $7,000 had been subscribed to purchase prises for yachts In all classes. - Messrs. Robert Goelet and Gouver-teur Kortrlgbt had worked hard to make this week a success, but yachtsmen-are jnappreclative.. As soon as the cruise ends they wish to get right away, and it Is only jy using 'great persuasive powers that the officers of the scuadron are ' able V to "hold'-;he( fleet, together, after ; the Goelet Cup i-ace each year.: ?7;;. .' j j ; v , - Five yachts came to the line to-day. They were the Jubilee, "the Defender, jj Rogers ilaxwell's Emerald, H.: .Wi. Lamb's Marguerite, and Wilmer and Addison Hanon's new thirty-four-rater. Acushla. Th Acuah-la Is a handsome-looking I boat, and - appeared to sail quite fast. She had no competitor; so, after crossing the line,! she retired from the contest. The Acushla will je off Larchmont very soon,; ready to tackle ihe Dragoon, and some good races should result.. J ' ' The tug G. M. Wlnslow was used by the Regatta Committee, Messrs. B. Nicholson Kane, Chester Grlswold, and Irving Grin-nell, having charge of the races. She anchored off Brenton'a Reef Lightship at aboirt ,11 o'clock, and, after slgnaang the course, gave the preparatory signal. The wind was from south-southwest,' and a heavy swell was running. The schooners were the first sent off. belug" started at 11:30. The Emerald crossed the line first, just thirty seconds after jthe gun; ..then came the Marguerite at 11:22:13. Both were close hsuled on the starboard tack.. They luffed around the stern of the lightship. ' ' The signal for the big single stickers was given at 11:40. and. while the yachts were manoeuvring for position. It was remarked that tbe Defender was not anxious to get the best position crossing tne line,; but was content to follow the Jubilee. The Jubilee crossed the line at 11:40:21, and the Defender at 11:40:49. Both were close hauled on the starboard tack, and crossed at the ilghtshlp end of the line, j . . j The Jubilee tacked to port about half a minute after crossing the line, and headed in toward the Narragansett shore. The Defender held on for a minute longer In order to weather the Doane. which was In the way', and then tacked In shore. About this time both the schooners tacked In shore. The Defender at once begaa"to out-foot the Jubilee. At 11:57 ahe came about on the starboard tack, and was then leading about a Quarter of a mile; but, on account of her Ill-fitting sails, was: sagging to leeward all the time. J I The Defender made considerably more fuss In the water than she had at any time yet. She pounded hard and threw a large volume of spray each side Of her bow. Her decks forward were soaking wet, f and her lee rail was well down. "At 12:17 she tacked In shore again to port, the jubilee following 35 seconds later: ' The Defender j held on this board for just five minutes, and then stood off shore again. The Defender and Jubilee tacked again to avoid a j big tow of barges coming in front the westward, the Defender tacking to port at 12:26:35 and the Jubilee at 12:27. j S Ten minutes later the Defender again came sbouf on the starboard tack. , and was at once followed by the Jubilee. . The Defender was now approaching the buoy. Her small Jib was sent up In stops, and she passed the buoy at 12:89:40. The Jubilee bad to take two more tacks to weather the mark, turning at 12:47:18. On the beat to windward . the Defender had taken &8 minutes SI seconds, while the Jubilee's time was 16:45, showing a difference' In favor of the Defender of 7 minutes 54 seconds. . It was a close teach on the starboard tack to the second mark. Baby ijlbtopaaUs were broken out and the yachts bowled, along In fine style, When half of the seven miles had been covered those on the I Defender realised that the baby Jlbtopsailj waa not enough. It was taken In and a larger one set. - v e - I- x- The Defender Jibed around . the second mark at 1:17 JO. and the Jubilee at 1:20:30. The elapsed time for the close reach waa: Defender 87 minutes 50 seconds; Jubilee, 30 minutes 14 seconds; so that on this point of sailing the Defender had gained 1 minute ' f Cantlnneel ctn Pace SU " ecuadoc's patriots tictoeiocs Details of the Battle at Sn If igiel.

Another Idea waa that the floors were overweighted In the aelahborbood of S temporary holstway be cause t neglect; in complying; with the . newly enforced regulations as to street x cumbrances which prohibit the accumula- r tloa of building materials In the streets, va divide the weight of piaster In bags so .as -not to exceed the limit of the safety test, 27S pounds to the square foot. , , Ceastrnetlem ef .the Ball din. The bnndlnsr. Which was advertised s ; absolutely fireproof." bade fair to be a handsome landmark of the neighborhood. It was eight stories high, with a base ares of 90 feet in West Broadway and 60 feet In West Third Street. The materials of the facade were buff-faced brick and- Indiana stone, and the appearance of the- structure from all sides was grateful from tbe archlr -tectum! point of view. The fireproof quail -ties of the building did not appear to admit . of cavtL i The floors were tiles set into Iron beams: the stairs were of iron, and th elevator shafts tile lined and beams; girders, 8upporUag,lron pillars, and wails were regarded yesterday as amply strong-. Ia the Item of materials of construction, euchv aa brick, mortars and cement, there did nog appear to have been any culpability of nig-gardllnees. The ! building waa so near to completion that ieveral tenants were about to prepare for occupancy. Plasterers, electricians, and other mechanics were puttlnar the finishing touches to the struct 'ire. and some of the windows had been put In. " John B. Ireland, lawyer, of 170 Broadway, owned the building, and plans for it. estimating the cost at 153,000, were filed la the Building Department In November, 1S34 when Thomas J. Brady was Superintendent, so that If responsibility for the accident can be charged to aa official of the depart meat. It cannot Involve Superintends Constable.
