SOUTHWEST CORNER. D The Keneseth Israel Synagogue Formally Dedicated, AN ELABORATE PROGRAMME Divines From Many Cities Participate in the Ceremonies. THE PERPETUAL LAMP LIGHTED One of the Handsomest House of Worship In America Dedicated In the Presence of a Itrtlltimt Gathering of Philadelphia' Most Prominent Men and Women A Scene of Rare Hrtl-llancy Enlivened by Choice Music. The dedication of tho new Jewish Temple of the Congregation "Keneseth Israel" (Assembly of Israel), began last evening under the most brilliant auspices. Fully one hour before the doors were opened tho east side of Broad street, between Columbia and Montgomery avenues, was crowded with Indies and gentlemen who were eagerly awaiting their turn to get a glimpse of tho interior of the imposing edifice about to bo consecrated. The Jewish residents of this city have eagerly awaited tho time when they would dedicate this, the grandest Jewish tabernacle on this continent, thereby proving that in this, as in many other respects, Philadelphia stands preeminently in tho foreground of Judaism in America. Shortly after tho doors were thrown open the large auditorium was completely filled with an audience comprising the most prominent Hebrews of Philadelphia and many who had conies miles to witness the grandest event in Reform Judaism that has taken placo in the last decade. The fame of the beautiful building Lad travelod over tho continent long before the edifice was ready for the purposes it was to bo consecrated to. Delegations from San Francisco, Kansas City, New Orleans, Baltimore. Chicago, Pittsburg, New York, Boston and other cities were present to participate in the services. AN IMMENSE CKOWD PRESENT. Many clamored at tho entrance in vain for admission, and whilo the temple has a seating capacity of nearly 2,000 fully double that number would have gladly witnessed the services had there been room. Tho outer doors had been closed by 7 o'clock and shortly thereafter the mammoth organ, presided over by Professor Carl Ectter, of Pittsburg, sent forth in sonorous tones tho processional march, to tho time of which sixty lads, each bearing a burning candle, an American flag and a palm leaf, marched down tho aisles and stopped beforo tho pulpit. The choir then sang tho " Hymn of Light," nirfed by this chorus of sixty beys, the latter singing in unison a responsive strain at the close of each verse. Then followed the lighting of the perpetual lamp by the oldest past president of tho congregation, L. licrnhoimer, an octogenarian, who had followed the congregation from its inception and had othciatcd at the dedication of its three different homes. Simultaneously with the lighting of the perpetual lamp all the lights were turned on and the beautiful illumination of the vast domo and the mammoth auditorium aroused an ex clamation of pleasure from tho largo assembly. During the singing of the recitative and tho chorus, "The Heavens Are Telling." from Haydn's oratorio, "The Creation," the hoys deposited their palm and national flags about the shrine. A BEAUTIFUL CEREMONIAL. The stentorian tones of "The Coronation March," from Meyerbeer's " Prophet," wore next heard and under the escort of the officers. of the congregation the officiating clergymen as follows entered the auditorium : Rev. William Armliold, Philadelphia; Hev Dr. II. Iierl;owlt7., Kansas City, Mo.; Iter. K. Callsb, Richmond; Rev. A. H. Uelsmur. llrooklyn, N. Y.; Rev. Dr. O. (iotthell. Now York; Hew. A. Guttinaoher, Ralllmore; Rev. M.H. Harris, New York; Rev. Israel Joseph, Wllkesbarre; Rev. Dr. Joseph K rauskopf, Philadelphia; Rev. ('. H. Levy, Lancaster, l'a.; Rev. Dr, L. Mayer, Pittsburg, Pa.; Rev. 'fob. Schanfarbcr, Baltimore; Rev. Dr. 1. M. Wise, Cincinnati. The scrolls, on which were inscribed the Five Books of Moses, were then deposited in the shrino, after which Hev. William Armliold pronounced tho exaltation of tho law. During a prelude on the organ one hundred girls, robed in spotless white, walked down the aisle, carrying flowers and wreaths. The central division was headed by a little miss bearing the key of the edifice, behind whom were six handsome girls carrying a huge "Star of David" of evergreens. Tho "Hymn to Flowers" was sung, after which the girls deposited their floral tributes at tho altar, while tho key was presented to Joseph Loch, chairman of tho building committee, who accepted it with appropriate remarks. Mr, Philip Lewin, president of the congregation, then delivered an address, in which lie recapitulated' tho history of Keneseth Israel, and praised the various committees fur the faithful fulfilment of the duties allotted to them. Ho concluded his remarks with tho charge to the minister. RAWil KRACSKOFF'b RESPONSE. Then followed Rabbi Joseph Krauskopf's response, in which ho incorporated the following: Mk. President: It Is a solemn duly which you now entrust to me. Y'onr words have awakened serious thoughts thoughts that never came before, and they have opened revelations such, as never belore presented themselves to my view. The few A II! ft. 'aim ' : riftnvti h - ' CHOIR AND GALLERY. words which yon have spoken, Mr. President, have conjured up a wonderful past, and they have painted in brilliant colors a mag-nlllcent present ; yes, they have breathed the fervent hope of a yet more glorious future, largely to be realized by him unto whoso care you now entrust tills sanctuary, wllhall lis solemn purposes and sacred inieresls and manifold possibilities. And the same words which you. Mr. President, have uttered, 1 read on lhe countenances ol your colleagues and on the sea of laces now liefore me. There are moments when without the aid of speech or any of Us substitutes, faces become instinct with elo (lueiice, when eyes speak to eyes, when thought interprets thought., when heart divines the Innermost thoughts and wlshfS of heart. This Is such a moment, In your faces I decipher the wishes of your hearls; In your eyes I scan the thoughts of your minds. In both I read the inspiring story ol your enthusiasm for Israel's holy cause, ol your unwavering devotion to Kencstith Israel's hlsh ideal, and of the many sacrifices yon have brought for Its furtherance. And In them I also' read your present hopes lor tho realization by your spiritual leader nt those yet grandcr'objects for which you have voluntarily undertaken vnst expenditures, and lor which mauy of you have borne heavy burdens, and wrestled with vexing cares and trying troubles. And thesanie charge, Mr. President, which you have reposed In me, and which I rend on lhe faces of all present, 1 hear for the third time addressed to me by this magnificent building Itself. Wherever 1 gaze, within or without, every brain nnd rafter, every post and pillar, every stone and brick, is eloquently vocal with ibo ono menage: "I have been built that now thou niayest build." Lei this hulldlng bo consecrated to the vindication of the too long misunderstood, mis-Judged nnd maligned Jewish creed and character. Toil hy day nnd toil by night, toll year in aud toll 'year out, till within Its walls be witnessed a true renaissance, ft real rebirth, a true appreciation of the Jew as be was and as uc is, what he has stood for and what he stands tor still, what he has achieved aud is achieving still for the glory of (iod and for the good of man. But lu this supremely happy hour I shall not, nurse gloomy prospects, nor give way lo doubts and fears. Fncouraged by the remembrance of God's blessings in the past, and by the noble aid which you at all times hxve cheerfully extended unto me, I shall rcso-lulely go forward lu the confidence that If that lofty misslou that, has been set as this congregation's goal is at all realizable, with the extraordinary advantages which this: temple affords, with the specially helpful features that have hero been provided, wilh a peace-loving aud progress-seeking congregation to assist, with n spirit anxious to succeed, and with o will prepared to toil and struggle for it, with a trust that (iod will prosper whatever Is undertaken for His glory and for the good of man. If success Is realizable at all ours must be a great aud enduring success. Be the work ever so gigantic nnd the difficulties ever so great, we have no need to fear. Where pence holds sway in the heort anil loyalty in tho mind, where courage Inflames the breast and love ot deed quickens the hand there failure Is impossible. FORMALLY DEDICATED. Dvorak's beautiful dedication anthem was rendered hy the choir in a truly artistic manner, whereupon Rev. Dr. L. Mayer, of Pittsburg, Pa., pronounced tho invocation, asking the aid of the God of Israel in the carrying out of tho labor undertaken by the members of the Congregation Keneseth Israel. He was succeeded by Rev. Dr. Isaac M. Wise, of Cincinnati, tho pioneer of Reform Judaism in America, who formally dedicated the edifice. "Judaism has no bishops," said Dr. Wise, "henco we can dedicate our temples only by our works in the vineyards of God. It is already consecrated, for where the Five Books of Mosc3 aro deposited there has been consecrated a spot for the worship of God. lie closed by dedicating the pews to all who may come into the tabernaclo for worship and seeking the true light, and tho building to those whose burdens can only be lightened hy their faith in God." Mme. Selma Kronold, of the Xew American Opera Company, then ssag with beautiful piled the aria from Mendelssohn's "Elijah," after which Rev. Dr. G. Gottheil, ot New York, delivered a very impressive and masterly dedicatory sermon. The dedicatory prayer wns next delivered by Rev. T. Schaufarber, of Baltimore, whereupon followed the regular evening ser vices according to the ritual. The first purt of the services were in charge of the Rev. F.dw. N. Calish, of Richmond, Va., and the latter half were spoken by Rev. C, II. Levy, of Lancaster, Pa. Tho bene.lic-tion, which concluded tho evening's ceremonies, was delivered by Rev. Dr. II.

NEARINGTHELflST DM CERTIFICATES OF NOMINATION UNDER THE BAKER BALLOT LAW. THEY ARE GENERALLY ON FILE Republican Chairman Heeder Wants lint Seven to Complete Ills List, While Democratic Chairman Wright la Reasonably Safe The Form of Ballot to be Voted Jtests With Attorney Genernl Hensel Many Societies In Line for the Scranton Convention. Certificates of tho nominations of candi-dates under the provisions of tho Baker ballot law must bo filed with the Secretary of State fifty-six days before the election, and the time limit expires next Monday. Up to date both Chairmen Reoder and Wright have been dovoting their best energies to this end, in order that the terms of tho law shall be complied with, and their efforts have resulted in a general attontion to tho subject all over tho State. "Wo lack but threo Congressional districts and four Legislative nominations to round out our lists," said General Reeder last evening, ''and oddly enough the Legislative districts aro in minority countios. The certificates may come by any mail, In any event tho Republican organization is fortunate, but it required hard work to secure that result." The last Republican certificates to Teach Chairman Reeder were from this city and comprised tho nominations made by this week's conventions. They were forwarded to Hnrrisburg yesterday and are now on file. Democratic, Chairman Wright was in Al-lontown yesterday, where the bulk of Democratic campaign work is done, lie reports a fairly clean record on the certificate lino, although a number found their way tol Kii Penu Square yesterday, in a few of which imperfections existed. As a rule, the various county chairmen have supervised the, lists, and no delay has been permitted in filing. MR. HENPEI. TO DEt'IDE THE BALLOT." The form of ballot to be voted is still unsettled, and will be until Attorney General Hensel gives an opinion in the premises, the subject having been referred to him for disposition after last Tuesday's conference between the three Statochairmcn and Secretary of State Harrity. " I have uot at any time thought Mr. Harrity prepared a ballot for lhe purpose of invalidating this State's electoral vote." said Mr. Reeder, "and I do not think Mr. Wright has avoided the question, as some statements have it. We have had a conference, alter two or three weeks' delay, to be sure, but it requires time to get busy men together. "Tho ballot is defective, in my opinion, because it directs that a single cross opposite the name at the head of the ticket is sufficient to indicate that the voter intended to vote a straight ticket. The cross or mark, it appears to me, should not only bo opposite the party name, but also opposite eacli group such as national, State and county. That is my contention and it is the view taken by a number of able legal minds. "The Attorney General, however, will decide the question at issue in a few days." CLL'RS IN LINE FOR PCRANTON. Secretary John D. Worman, of the Democratic Society, has tho run of business at Democratic headquarters just now. The first letter in bis mail yesterday told about! the organization of the Jackson Club at Danville, thirty-seven strong, with John L. Russell as the president.

A FT r It CREDENTIALS. Secretary Worman says that "all anlhori4 tics of the Democratic party, from tho national committee downward, feel the great importance of a thorough Democratic socioly organization, not alone in tho State of Penn sylvania, but. the entire country," and ho will send out to-da'y a circular requesting all Democratic' clubs in tho State to forward at once a list of names of the deputies elected to attend the General Assembly, which meets and opens tho campaign in this State at Scranton, September 20. Railroad orders for a special rale of fare are now being sent out from his office in the building No. 1-13:2 South Penn Square, and judging from the mails being received, the attendance will bo large. THE LEEDS CLUB BANNER It la In I'm I1 Amid Oratory, Music and a Cheering Crowd. Though tho benignant smile of the old Tenth ward Republican war horse, William H. Leeds, was not In evidence last evening lo still further enthuse his falthlnl followers belonging to the association bearing Ins uame, at nil North Tenlh street, ou the occasion of theunfurllngof a handsome new campaign banner, the exterior of the club house gayly bedecked with flags nnd Japancso lanterns and the spnclous apartments thronged with members and friends, a cheering crowd without, listening alternately to eloquent oratory by favorite leuders and the Inspiring strains ol a band, all lent brilliance and animation lo the scene and served as a fit opening of the campaign. Tho meeting was opened by President A. S. Roberts, who spoke of tho Importance of tho coming contest. Select Councilman Bnlllnger was elecled chairman, aud Introduced Cor-orner Ashbrldre, who delivered a characier-istle address. Kx-Adjutant General James W. Lntta followed wilh an eloquent address on the subject of protection, lu which lie said that this was a llepiibllcau year, aud Harrison was sure to boeleeled. Other addresses were made by John Carlisle and Georsn H, McCurdy. A letter of regret at unavoidable non-attendance was sent by Captain John Taylor. HELPING COSGROVE'S BOOM. Down-Town Ilrmocrnta Hold a Lively Mas Meeting. The Young Men's Democratic Association of the Twenty-sixth ward fired the first gun of the campaign last evening In behalf of John C. Cosgrove, candidate for Btute Senator, by holding a mass meeting at their headquarters, 172(1 South Broad street. Tho club house was decoraled with Hags nnd Chinese lanterns, and much enthusiasm was displayed. Addresses w ere delivered by Representative O. B. Ulekcraon, 11. Ilitthewny and James Ilryson, of Chester, and John C. Cosgrove. Among the promluent local Democrats pres. ent were Magistrate Ladner, Kx-Magistralo The County Democracy Name the Ite-publlcan Candidate. Delegates alleged to have been elected by the County Democracy of tho Third Congressional district met in National Guards' Hall last evening for the purpoao of nominating William McAlcer, who isalso the Republican candidate. Philip Fttzpatrlelc noted as chairman and read a long list of vice presidents. Then a committee ou resolutions was appointed and Chairman Fltzpatrick took advantage of a pause In the proceedings to make a speech. A mong other things he said : "I feel thoro has bceu a groat wrong done the party by men high In office and I think the time ripe to stamp out such practices. I hope all tho delegates here will take off their coals aud roll up their sleeves and go Into the fight with the determination to win. I am lu to win." After this outburst of eloquence Franz Heldel, a delegate from the .Seventeenth ward, placed the nnmo of William McAleer before the convention and said: "I nm satisfied he will be elected by the largest majority ever polled for any candidate from tho Third district." Horace S. Fogel seconded the nomination. Then the roll was called and tho vote taken. McAleer received all of the 110 votes cast, every division being represented except two from the Sixteenth and one from the Seventeenth wards. Tbo reading of t lie result was met with round nfler round of cheers lor McAleer, until Jimmy Mack, ol the Sixth ward, got up and attempted to hurrah for Ker. Iu an Instant cries of "Sit down I" "Put him out !" were heard all over the house. Canes, hats and umbrellas were threateningly flourished by the members as they crowded around the Ker champion, aud for a time It looked as if some of tho over-zealous McAleor delegates would have to bo taken out on a shutter unless the Ker man was quieted. During the melee 'Squire McMullen slipped out and a moment alter returned with two brawny policemen, who promptly collared Mr. Mack and, despite his vleorous protests, hustled him down the stairs and out of t he hall. After t he obnoxious member from the Sixth ward had been fired the convention became quiet enough to appoint a committee on notification. Resolutions were adopted expressing confidence in Mr. McAleer, complimenting him on his record in Congress, objecting to Captain Ker's nomination, resenting tho arbitrary action ol the city executive committee and warmly Indorsing the nomination of Cleveland and Stevenson. Snpport for Captain Devlin. There was a full meeting of the Jackson Democratic Club at lllfl Columbia avenue ou Thursday night, at which resolutions were adopted extending to Captain Charles P.

The Union Republican Club, of the Twentieth ward, last night dismissed Harry Len-hart from membership because be secured the Democratic nomination for the Legislature from that ward; and because he said last week that Magistrate William S. Kochors-perter and Kx-Depnty Sheriff James (ioseh were not good enough people to tie associated with him In any party. The vole lo dismiss him was unanimous.

A QUESTION OF JURISDICTION John II. Read, as Counsel for Dallry, Argues That as Representatives Are State Officers the Case Must he Heard In the Danphln County Courts The Judges Postpone the Hearing and Will Hear Further Argument. Determined that the public shall not be allowod to forget that tho Democrats of the Seventeenth ward are cugaged iu a bitter factional fight, Eepresentative John II. Fow is pressing his objections to the validity of the certificate of nomination of Samuel D, Dailey, who wants Fow's seat in tho Legislature, and yestorday, in Common Pleas Court, No, 2, Judges F'ell and Pcnnypacker sat to hear witnosses in support of the objections which wcro filed last week. J. HbzIc-ton Mncklo aiid F. Carroll Brewster appeared for Mr. Fow, and. William B, Gill and John K. Koad for Mr. Dailey. The Judges were about to begin the examination of Mr. Fow and tbo rules of the Democratic party had been read, when Mr. Read, having asked for and been refused a postponement, interposed, saying that as tho answer of his client would dony tbo jurisdiction of the Court ho would, with permission, read it, though Mr. Dailey was not present to swear to it. lie explained that the question should bo decided at once in order to save both time and trouble. The permission having been granted the answer was read. dai ley's anbwkk keai. Samuel D. Dailey, the candidate named In the petition, In answer to the oblectlon filed against lhe validity of the certificate of his nomination, answers and says that ho denies each and all of the allegations made In the said petition which in any way assert the Invalidity of the certificate of his nomination or the Irregularity or the proceedings upon which the sanio Is based, and avers .that the certificate of nomination is valid and regular nnd was regularly and validly obtained under aud in accordance with the rules of the Democratic party aud the act ol Assembly regulating tho same; but he is advised by counsel, aud therefora avers that It Is not necessary for btm to here make ansvror lo the allegations in said petition averred or lo specify t he means by which his said certificate was obtained or set forth the regularity thereof, for the reason that your honorable Court of Common Pleas No. 2, of the city and county of Philadelphia, in which the said petition is filed, has no Jurisdiction to Inquire concerning the said mutter or hear and determine thesame ; wherefore, he prays that the said petition be dismissed. In support of Ih'r client's position Mr. Read argued that objections to tho validity of the certificate of nomination should be made to tbo Common Pleas Court of Dauphin county as a representative is a Stale officer, though he is voted for in but a limited district. Judge Brewster contended that such a con struction wonld nullify the purposes of the act and suggested that it wonld be impossible take fifteen or twenty witnesses from this city to Dauphin county for examination there. Mr. Head suggested to the court that it would not be influenced, bo presumed, by any question ot inconvenience. Judgo Fell replied it certainly would not, and inquired whether the words certificatedrsigned forthe State at largo did not mean offices to be filled by the voters of tho State at large, and Judge Pennypacker inquired whether it did not mean for ollices to be filled by voters throughout the State. TUB MEAXIN'O OF THE ACT. Mr. Fow said that the language had been discussed in committee and that the Legisla ture intended by that phraseology to mean ollices to ho voted for by the people of tho whole Stale. Mr. Gill said that tbo wording of the act did not mean that the certificates or papers were to be for the State at large, but for State offices to bo filled. When a Representative is elected he acts for tho Slate at large and is a State oflieer. Ail this was preliminary to entering upon the argument, if the court should determine to hear it on this question, and Judge Fell said that as it was a question which ought to be settled, he would hear the counsel upon it. Judgo Brewster and Edward A. Anderson argued at length on the theory that the caso clearly came wit li in the jurisdiction of the court, whilo Mr. Eead argued just as strongly airainst that proposition and in snpport of his claim that tho case must be heard in Dauphin county. He quoted from the lnw bearing on the subject and insisted that a Representative is a State official. After listening patiently for some time the court postponed the hearing until tho Kith instant, it first having ascertained that the objections to the validity of tho certificate of nomination could, under the law, be filed as late as October 13. HANGED SIDE BY SIDE Two Colored Murderer Pay the Penalty for Their Crimes. SrA RTAN'nr Kti, September 9. Tho quadruple hanging that was to have taken place hero to-day was converted In to a dual one by (lovernor Tillman ordoring a respite for thirty days for John Williams, the slayer of Mayor Ilenueman, and Milbry Brown, tho child-rnnrderer.

OAKLAND LAND COMPANY 225 SOUTH SIXTH ST. PHILA. MOVEMENTS IN STATE POLITICS Editor F. C. Johnson failed of the nomination for the Legislature In the W'llkesbarro district principally because of his refusal to follow anything else than the line of honest politics In his fight. Mr. Johnson's ability has made the Record the leading Republican paper In Luzerne county, and his defeat Is perhaps the best thing that could happen to him personally. Says tho Wllllamsport Sun: Tho nomination of F. K. WrlKht for Coneress by the Democratic conference of the Sixteenth district is looked upon as a wise ono by the Democrats of the district. Mr. WrlKht Is one of Tioga county's best known and most popular citizens and has many friends among the He-publicans of that county. It is predicted that he will reduce tho Republican majority ot Tioga to less than 2,000. In Clinton county the prospects are that the defection of tho Democratic voters In 1890 will not be repeated and tho county will ijlvo Mr. Wright tho usual Democratic majority. There are good Indications for believing thatthe Democratic friends of Mr. Hopkins will have good reasons for standing by Mr. Wright this year, aud, as there Is dissatisfaction in the Repub lican ranks In Clinton county over the nominations for county offices, the Indications are that Mr. Wright will carry the county by a good majority. Lycoming county will stand by Mr. Wright with a majority that wl l, with the aid of Clinton's majority and tho r-ductiou of Tioga's vote, insure Mr. Wright's election. The Chester county conferrees appointed to meet those of Delaware county on the Con presslonal nomination are T. Lurry Eyre, of West Chester; If. Morgan Rmb, of Duffrin Mawr, and James M. Worrall, ol Kennett Square. Ex-Leg'slntor Albert Majnln 'proposes to fight to tho bitter end his independent campaign In Delaware county. Captain Magnlu has many friends with blm in the contest. The dead-lock in the Republican Senatorial conference in the Thlrtr-seveuth district was broken at Brookvllle by the withdrawal of M. C. Watson, of Indiana. Captain James G. Mitchell, of Jefferson, was then unanimously nominated on the ItiOth ballot. Mr. Watson withdrew 1u a letter to bis coulorrees, In which he stated that he did so in the interest of harmony, preferring party to personal success. Ho pledged his hearty support to Captain Mitchell. The conference adopted resolutions Indorsing Mr. Watson for luture political preferment, and conceding theSeua-torehlp to Indiana county four years hence. The district is overwhelmingly Republican. Two years ngo Sloan, Democrat, had 5,801 votes; Hood, Republican, 4.5(iti, aud Bond, Iudependeut Republican, A FATAL OPERATION. A Young Pntirnt Dies From an Over-Dose of I.llirr.
