Imposing Cereitionien at Chlcngo Attend* ing; the Twenty-Fifth Anniversary of the £levatlon of the Venerable 1'rolute to the fttahoprlc. CHICAGO, Oct. 30.—The grandest religious celebration and pageant ever held in the West, or perhaps in ,t h e- whole country, with tho exception of the txercises incidental to the bestowal upon Arch bishop Gibbons of tho hat and ring of a cardinal, commenced hero at 10 o'clock a. m., Wednesday. T w o n ty- five years ago on Saturday next a young St. Louis priest was consecrated at Nashville, Tenn., as bishop of that diocese. Fifteen years later thatsame priest and bishop having filled that popular and important see for that length of time, WHO raised to the ecclesiastical dignity of Archbishop of Chicago, with an arch-diocese which in material and spiritual importance is among tho first in the world. The celebration, therefore, is in honor of tho silver jubilee of Most Rev. Patrick Augustus Foohan, and is tho result of n spontaneous de sire not only to recognize the anniversary of a most important event in the history of the Roman Catholic church, but as a tribute to tho popularity of the archbishop himsolf. The archbishop during the morning was tho recipient of the following message from the Pope: "Congratulations to tho archbishop, Apos tolic benediction to clergy and flock. LEO XIII." Never in the history of Chicago has there been such a procession of prelates and priests as wended its way down Chicago avenue to the Cathedral of the Holy Name. KFirst came the acolytes and cross bearer, followed by over 500 priests from this and neighboring dio- seses. All were vested in surplice and cassock. A halt was made at the parochial residence. Here tho procession was joined by Archbishop Feohan, Archbishop Ryan, of Philadelphia; Bishops Hennosy of Dubuque, Chatard of Vincennes, Ind; Cosgrove of Davenport, la.; Richter, of Grand Rapids, Mich., Flasch of La Crosse, McCloskey of Louisville, Ryan of Alton, Janssen of Belleville, Spalding of Peoriii, Monsignor Zeininger, administrator of the Arch-diocese of Milwaukee; Vicar-General Gleason of Nashville, Father Kavanagh, President of Niagara college, Father Walsh, President of Notre Dame University, and Father Veil of Memphis, The visiting prelates were vested in purple mantelet, surplice and cassock and each was accompanined by two chaplains. Preceding them was a censor-bearer and a boat-bearer. The procession was nearly 1,000 strong and presented a magnificent spectacle, and as it entered through the portals of the cathedral the great organ and an orchestra of thirty- six pieces rendered Meyerbeer's grand march of tho Prophet The pontifical high mass of the day was celebrated by the Most Reverend Archbishop of Chicago himself. After the first gospel Right Rev. Bishop John J. Hogan, of Kansas City, ascended tho pulpit and delivered an eloquent eulogism on the prolate whose jubilee was being celebrated. He dwelt on the life of sacrifice required by the church of those who enter her ministry, and showed how faithfully Archbishop Feehan had obeyed his call to the sacerdotal vocation. The splendid choir of the cathedral, under the direction of Organist H. C. Beseler, carried the musical portion of the celebration. There was a chorus of sixty voices. j The banquet at the Auditorium in .he afternoon was gorgeous in all its appointments. Over 350 Bishops and priests sat down to tables in tho }•>»»» M- :ui cUning-baU that blazed with electric ights. The demonstration in the evening was a grand success. Every parish in Xiok County and surrounding counties s represented in the torch-light procession and each man carried a light o* some kind. Fully 25,000 men and 100 Dands were in line, and the streets through which the parade moved were crowded with spectators. The procession was reviewed by Archbishop Feon and his guests from the balcony of the Auditorium Hotel. [Patrick Augustus Feehan was born in the Ittle hamlet of Springhalt m tho County Tip- >erary, Irolunil, in 1E'J9. From his birth Us parents' dearest wish was that he devote himself, to the church. Alter graduating ut the diocesan (jullo^e o( St. Patrick at Thurles, •where lie obtained marked honors, he tcolc a theological course ai Maynooth. About that 1 time the Irish tide of emigration set in and Archbishop Feehan came to America. Ho went to St. Louis, where his friend. Dr. Ken- drink, had gone before him. For a time he wus preceptor in the Carondelet Seminary and in 1S52 was put in charge ol the Church of the Immaculate Conception at St. Louis. It was in 1805 that he became Bishop of Nashville by the resignation of Bishop Whelan. \Vhilo in that capacity Archbishop Feehan made a National reputation by building up a thoroughly dismantled diocese and by establishing a home for the children made orphans by the war. With his corps of priests be did noble work during the yellow fevi;r scourge, and when in 1880 Chicago was raised to an ar«hd.ooese Archbishop Feehan was called xo preside iver itsvcifare. It proved a mo&t wise appointment. What he has accomplished here in the way of building up churches, establishing new ones aud foundiug nourishing charitable institutions is now a matter of history.] SCORES DROWNED. A Steamship And a Schooner Colllrte Ofl tho Coant of New Jocae?, rtttcJ Uoth Ate Snnlc—Over Sixty IMvcs Thought to ttaVe Been tout—Eleten Oernian t,lto Saver* Fertali In the Forlormnnce of Their Duties. NEW YORK, Nor. 1.—The steamship Vizcaya, of the SpanislvAmorican line, collided with the four-masted schooner Cornelius Hargraves Thursday evening when six miles off Barnegat, and both vessels sank almost immediately. It is supposed that over sixty people have been lost. The steamer Humboldt, which arrived in Brooklyn Friday morning from Brazil, rescued eight of the crew, the first and second officers, the engineer and surgeon of the Vizcaya. Ho far as is known at present these are tho only persons out of a total crew and passenger list of eighty-six of the Vizcaya and the crow of the schooner that have been saved. It is feared that all the others have been lost. The Vizcaya left hero Thursday at 1 p. m. for Havana and other Cuban ports. She had a large cargo of freight, a crow of seventy-seven and nine regula'r passengers. There were others on board, however, who are not entered on the passenger list. At 8:30 Thursday evening a largo four- masted schooner hove in sight. She was a much larger vessel than the Vizcaya and immediately bore down upon her. Her bowsprit struck tho steamship on the starboard bunkers, carrying away tho bridge and tho cabin. The captain of tho Vizcaya, who was standing on tho bridge, was instantly killed. Seven minutes later both vessels had sunk, and tho passengers and crews wore struggling in the water. There were heartrending shrieks and cries, which were heard by the people on board the Humboldt. Boats wore lowered and twelve persons were picked up. The cries were hushed, and not another soul could be seen. After waiting some time the Humboldt steamed away. A negro was picked up by a small boat afterward. He belonged to tho Vizcaya. Following is a list of tho passengers: Juan Pedro, M. A. Galvo, wife, son and maid, Mr. Purr and three children, Mr. A. Ruiz, Jose Acaibia, Ramon Alvarez, Juan F. Hedman, Oscar Islaur, Ligui Pollion, Jose Ma Garcia. It is said that Senor Calvo, who perished with his wife and son, was a 'partner in the firm of Franche & Co., of Havana, the largest and richest sugar house in Cuba. The Vizcaya's cargo was valued at $150,000. The vessel was insured. LEWES, Dpi., Nov. 1.—The tug Hercules arrived Friday evening and reports that the schooner which collided with the Spanish steamer was the Cornelius Hargraves. Both vessels sunk in fifteen fathoms of water. Ten men from tbo Hargraves and seven from the Vizcaya were picked up by the schooner Sarah L. Davis and transferred to the Hercules. Tho latter proceeded to the wreck to render assistance, but at midnight mot the tug Butler, which had been to rhe scene and found both vessels sunk and all hands gone. It had picked up tho body of a woman. The survivors report that nearly a hundred people were clinging to the wreck at one time. The schooner Cornelius Hargraves, Captain Allen, cleared from this port October 37 with a cargo of coal for Fall River, Mass. MANY LIVES LOST.

Leopold Hros. & Co., Chicago, Wlio'ev-ile Clothiers, Go Uiul.-r—Their Liablutlea Will Probably lt«acli 8300,OOO. CHICAGO, Nov. 1.—Leopold Bros. & Co., wholesale dealers and manufacturers of clothing, have failed. Their liabilities will aggregate ¥300,000. The firm was established in 1S5B, and did a business of about SI,000,000 a yoar. Tho tightness of the money market and slowness of collections ai-o tlio reasons given for the failure. The real reason, however, is believed to be the reduction of their capital, caused by the death of two of the partners and the withdrawal of their money interest by their widows. The firm did an enormous business. They manufactured their own clothing in tho big sevou-story building at Quincy and Franklin, employing about 120 men and women. In addition to this they gave out work to tha small tailoring houses in the city, and tho total number of people directly and indirectly em ployed exceeds 350. KILLED HIS WIFE'S BROTHERS. A Double Murder and Probable Suicide ut WttRtport, C!al. WESTPORT, Cal., Nov. 1.—Between 5 and 0 o'clock Friday morning in the woods about two miles from here Frank Mason shot and killed his two brothers in-lavv. Charles and Matthew Vann, while thoy wore asleep in Mason's house. After committing the deed Mason fled into the woods armed with his rifle. More shots were heard in the woods, and a.i Mason had made threats against others in the neighborhood it is feared he has killed them or may have killed himself. No causo can bo assigned for tho murderous deed except insanity, as Mason and tho Vann brothers wore apparently on good terms. Mrs. Mason is lying unconscious from the shock. Officers from here are scouring the woods for the murderer.

THE JUBILEE CLOSES, Catholic Children nnil Grown Pollen Ten* rier At hblithop Feohan An*o<Hionat« Ailrireftse* In Muny Iifttigtraireft. CHICAGO, Oct. 81.—Five thousand children of tho parochial schools gathered at the Auditorium at io a. m., Thursday to extend their greetings to Archbishop Feehan. Nearly all nationalities were represented—Americans, Germans, French, Italians, Polanders, Bohemians, Irish and negroes. Each nationality, through children chosen for the put- pose, addressed tho venerable prelate, and many patriotic songs were sung. Altogether it was an inspiring sight. Tho addresses of the children were made in English to show that the speakers had been trained to speak tho language of their country, and each body of children sang tho national song of tho country of their ancestors, to show that they had not forgotten the source of their descent. Tho gem ot the programme was tho singing of "Columbia" by the thousands of children. Thoy sang it with a will, too. and at tho chorus every one of tho flags was waved, till tho Auditorium seemed a moving mass of thd blended National colors. Father Hennuberry led the chorus and waved enthusiastically a largo American flag. The scone was grand. Archbishop Foohan made a fooling address in response to tho demonstration by the children, after which he dismissed the vast audience with tho bone- diction. The Auditorium was filled Thursday night with a large gathering of Catholic citizens who had assembled to assist at the closing exercises of tho celebration in honor of thoir Archbishop's silver jubilee. It wus emphatically a people's celebration. Five thousand Catholic citizens, representing every nationality in Chiciigo, were there and listened to addresses read in their native tongue. The stage was prettily decorated with National flags. In the center sat Arch- j hishop Feehan, surrounded by the visit- 1 ing Bishops and local clergy. The proceedings wore opened by the orchestra, which playod a grand march of welcome. Mr. Thomas Brenan, who made the introductory address, spoke of the lovo and affection which the Catholics of Chicago bore to the Archbishop whose jubilee they were celebrating. Tho church choirs of the city sung the jubilee hymn, the chorus of which was taken up by the immense audience and repeated several times. An unusually interesting feature of he celebration was the presentation of an address from the colored Catholics. Lincoln Valley spoke for the colored people. J. P. Beretle, in tbe name of the Italian Catholics, assured his grace of the devotion of his race to the Catholic church. A double quartette sung: "O! Columbia," after which the French Canadians addressed the Archbishop in their native tongue. P. F. Barry read an address in Gaelic which was loudly applauded. Tho Bohemians and Poles came next with addresses of loyalty and gratitude to the Archbishop for the brotherly interest he had taken in their welfare. The Catholic Order of Foresters presented an illuminated address bound in rod morocco. Dr. Andrus and S. F. Langlois then sang selections which were very much appreciated. Judge Moran spoke on behalf of the English-speaking Catholics of thn diocesf. The Archbishop, -who was deeply moved by tho affectionate sentiments conveyed in the ai'divsses, made a touching reply. He reforre I to the different nationalities of which the Catholic church was composed. He said that at some future time the various languages would melt and disappear in the living stream of tho language of the Republic. Catholics, he suid, by virtue of their religion, were good citizens. The history of our country for tbe last 100 years bears witness to this fact. At tbe conclusion of the Archbishop's address the immense audience dispersed, and tho silver jubilee was at an end. REED'S RULE SUSTAINED.

THE HENNEPIN CANAL. of > fop III* MET A JUST PATE. fom WoolfolU Hunnod at ferry, < the Murrlftf of Nine Member* Own Family. PKIWY, Ga. ( Oct. 80.—Thomas Woolfolk was hanged here at 8 p. tn. Wednesday for the murder of nittft members of his own family. Seven or eight thousand people fiwarmed the hill-sides around to witness tho execution. On the gallows Woolfolk was cool and composed. After tho minister had prayed he himself prayed, fervently declaring his innocence in his invocation. A written statement signed by Woolfolk was read, in which he gavo it as his dying declaration that he was innocent of the crime for which he was being executed. At 1:81 the drop fell. The fall failed to break his neck, and death resulted from strangulation, his pulso continuing to beat for eleven minutes after the fall. Twenty-five minutes later tho body was cut down. [Tho crime for which young Woolfolk was bunged hns but few equals In the bloodiest pages of American criminal history. In Bibb County, near Mucon, lived Captain R1 o h a r cl F. Woolfolk, his wife, six children and an aged mint of Mrs. Woolfolk. Captain Woolfolk was n well-educated, prosperous farmer, and was regarded as ono of the very ijest citizens of tho county and State. By his TOM WOOLPOI,K. first marriage ho had three children, two daughters, no'v happily married, aud the wayward son, Thomas G. By his second marriage Captain Woolfolk had six children. Ho was rich and had supported his son Thomas for years, spending thousands In paying his debts contracted while sowing his wild oats. Tho young man at the age of !27 was still the black sheep of the family, and his constant quarrelling with his step-mother led to tho foarful slaughter which took place on the night of August 5. 1887, between midnight and duwn. On tlwn night a negro living only a few hundred yards from the Woolfolk house was awakened j by Tom Woolfolk calling loudly for help. When I tho negro responded young Woolfolk j told him that some ono had broken into * the house and had Itilled all the family. The frightened negro refused to go to tho house and Tom retraced his steps, only to return n second time after an absence of ten minutes. ''I tell you they are dead," he said, and tlien ordered some boys to RO for tho neighbors. By dawn a score of farmers were on the scene. When they entered Captain Woolfollc's room, a most sickening sight met their gaze. On tho bed lay the popular citizen and farmer, stone dead; across his body Iny that of his wife, and between them the infant child. Across the foot of the bod was the body of the beautiful 17- year-old daughter. Pearl, and on the floor by tho door the manly form of Richard P., Jr., aged 21, and by his side the 5-year-old Charlie. The skull of each had been crushed In by a blow from the head of an axe, and their faces and arms bore cuts and gashes which betokened terrible death struggles. Almost as sickening to their eyes was the scene In the bedroom across the hall from that of Captain Woolfolk. There Pearl and her little sisters and aunt had slept. The aunt, Mrs. Temperance West, aged 84 years, lay in her bed, her brains oozing out of one large gash. Across the foot lay the body of 7- year-old Rosebud, a bright and loving child, and by the window under a sheet layAnmo of 10, both with their heads split open and gashed terribly. But one of the family had been spared. He lay out on the front porch on a pallet during the examination of the bodies, feigning sickness, obstinate, sullen and peculiar in his action. Though a man of 27 years, by his own confession, when he heard tha first blows received 'by his father, he had lumped out of bed and through an open window, leavimj the others to their fate. It was at once seen that he was the murderer and ho was arrested. A well in the rear of the house gave up a bloody undershirt and a pair of drawers, and an examination of Tom's body showed bloody marks upon his limbs. He was convicted, but the Supreme Court ordered a new trial on a technicality. A second trial sealed bis fate.] NO LONGER RULER. Extradition of uu Illinois ttmbrr.zler. NKwOitLEANS, Nov. 1.—J. C.

HU SIclt.lliHl-Uetitlt Clalmo H«r bpouae and Loaves liter » ttldottr With In twenty-tfour Hours-A Pathetic Story., WASHINGTON, Oct. 81.--Houghwaut Howe, of New York, whose marriage to Miss Mary Butterworth, the daughter of Representative Buttorworth, of Ohio, took place at his bedside Wednesday, died in his room at the Metropolitan Club at 12:16 o'clock Thursday afternoon. Mr. Howe had been taken ill a week before and grew steadily worse as his marriage day approached. Distress of mind and disappointment growing out of the singular sadness of his situation aggravated Ms malady. He suffered beside from a heart trouble which, as he realized, might at any time take a suddenly fatal turn. I* was tho young lady's suggestion that tho marriage should take place forthwith. No sooner did she learn her lover's real condition than she besought tho doctors to permit the ceremony without form or delay at the sick bed. The doctors consulted, and at length gave thoir assent on purely professional grounds. \ A few gathered together in tho stricken man's chamber, the parents of the bride, Mr. and Mrs. Roosa, the invalid bridegroom's mother and step-father and members of both families. The doctors stood by to note the effects of this novel treatment and to be ready to act in a not unexpected emergency. As fcho clergyman, llev. Dr. ifartlett, joined the hands of these happy-wretched pair the silence of the room was broken with sobs that welled up from hearts torn with distracting emotions. The bridegroom breathed a sisrh of relief as tho ceremony came to an end and the physicians agreed that ho seemed brighter and stronger. An informal wedding reception was accordingly held at Mr. Butterworth's house. But his daughter remained at her new husband's side, and, as the hours passed by, realized how deceptive were the symptoms which inspired tho passing confidence of the doctors. Tbe young man slowly and steadily faded away and his short honeymoon wuned, darkened and was eclipsed. For several hours after the wedding on Wednesday Mr. Howe rested easily, but towards night he became delirious and those in attendance were obliged to use force to prevent him from doing harm. This continued though the night. At times the sick man fancied ho was on his wedding trip. In the morning an attempt was made to quiet him by an injection of morphine, and this operation was accomplished only after a struggle. Mrs. Howe, who, with Mrs. Roosa, Mr. Howe's mother, and Dr. Magruder had remained with him during the night, went to her home for breakfast, after her husband became quiet. She returned about 9:30 and remained at his bedside until the end. During her absence he had grown much worse, and his heart was failing rapidly. During the early morning tho beating of his heart was so strong that it could be beard all over tbe room in which ho lay and his breathing was stentorious and heavy. About 10 o'clock the physicians decided that he could only live a few hours, and Mrs. Howe was so informed. From this time he grew gradually weaker, the action of the heart less regular, and at 13:15 o'clock death came to him calmly and quietly. The estate of tbe deceased is not large and he did not make a will, being scarcely able to do so since his marriage. A romantic interest is attached to the only piece of real estate be had to leave behind him. Ho owned in Cambridge, Mass., a house familiar to all readers of Longfellow's "Tales of a Wayside Inn.'' This inn was the house described in the poem, and from it he derived an income of J?l,200 a year. He was descended from the family from which. Elias Uowe, the inventor of the sewing machine, sprung. Although his life had boon full of striking experiences ho was only 82 years of age. Many handsome presents wore sent to the couple Wednesday night. President and Mrs. Harrison wrote autograph letters congratulating the couple and presented them with a beautiful set of salad dishes and spoons. Mrs. MoKee sent a bowl of rare bon-bon dishes. The contribution of Mrs. Miller, the wife of the Attorney-General, was a magnificent imported Dresden clock and a priceless bit of old black lace of Dresden manufacture. Mr. and Mrs. Murat lialstead sent a maenifloent set of individual butter disbea of solid gold, and Minister Ryan, of the City of Mexico, gave a set of Mexican gold after- dinner coffee spocns.
