Some Notable Addresses and
Papers Much Enthns'atm
The Old Log College celebration, under the
auspices of the Presbytery of Philadelphia,
North, was held on the old Tennant farm,
near Hartsville, Bucks county, Pa., where
the college was originally located. The farm
is twenty mines from Philadelphia. The ex
ercises of the day are really commemorative
of the founding of the Presbyterian Church
n tho United States. The Log College was
established in 1720 by William Tennant, and
flourished until 1742, when Princeton Col
lege was founded, and it may be said thit
the Princeton institution sprang up from the
primitive college established by Tennant.
President Harrison attended, accompanied
by Postmaster-General Wanamaker, Mrs.
Harrison, R?v. J. W. Scotland Private Sec
retary Hallord. The President and pirty
spent the night at Mr. Wanamaker'd country
home at Jenkintown. The presidential party
drove eight miles to the celebration over the
o d York road. The route was profusely dec
orated with Digs and bunting on the farm
houses, fences and trees. Guv. Beaver was
with the party, and a continued ovation was
tendered all along the route, and even up to
tb9 stand in the celebration pavilion.
Teats bal been erected on the Tennant
farm, and an immense crowd from the sur
rounding country an 1 Philadelphia, and in
cluding prominent Presbyterian divines from
all over the country, was present. At 11.3d
the services of the day were opened by hi
r ading of a verse of Scripture by Rev. J.
B kks. D. D.. of the Falls of Scbuylkill.PbilA-
ue phia. Then followed a proyer by Rev. L.
W. Eckard, of Abin.ton, Pa., to whom the
success of the celebration was due.
At 11.50 the President, leaning on the arm
of Mr. Wanamaker, entered the large tent
and was given a most enthusiastic welcome,
The party took front seats on the raised plat
form. - The ladles of the party were dressed
handsomely and carried bouquets.
The first paper was read by Rev. D. K.
Turner, of Hartsville, Pa., descriptive of the
founding of the Log College and the useful
career of its founders. Rev. R.M.Patterson,
D. D., LL. D., of Philadelphia, editor of the
Presbyterian, delivered an address on "Log

The assemblage, numbering 25,000. rosi en
masse and repeatedly cheered as the Presi
dent came to the front of the platform.
At the close of the President address there
was a scene of wild excitement for five min
utes, men and women cheering and waving
handkerchiefs and in o! her ways demonstrat
ing their approval of the Chief Executive's
sentiments. After the singing of the hymn,
"Nearerj My God, to Tbee," the morning ex
(rcists closed at 1.33 o'clock.
The President and party were escorted to
a special tent prepared and decorated for
them, where an informal lunch was served.
At its conclusion the President, Mrs. Harri
son and Rsv. Mr. Scottentered their carriage
and started back to Mr. Wanamaker's at
Jenkintown, at 2 20 o'clock, tbe vast assem
blage cheering the President as he drove off.
The attendance at the afternoon session
was larger than in the morning. Rev. Ebe

ered an addrss on "Presbyterians of tbe
Cumberland Valley." Governor .Beaver said
he has at least a grandson of t be the Log Col
lege, for he w as a sou of Washington and
Next John Wanamaker was introduced,
and he, too, came in for an outburst of ap
p ause. Mr. Wanamaker closed his address
by suggesting the rebuilding of the old Log
College in a form as nearly resembling the
original as possible as a memorial of Tennant,
Whitfield and tbe early Presbyterian heroes.
President Knox, of Lafayette College, next
delivered an address, and after several other
short addresses the celebration ended at six
o'clock by the pronunciation of the benedic
tion by Rev. J. W. Scott, the venerable father
of Mrs. Harrison.
THE ABANDONED SEAMEN.
The Prosecution of the Two Survivors
Who Killed a Comrade.
Captain Kellogg, commanding the Unitad
States steamer Ossipee, now at Newport
News, has been ordered to release the two
seaman whom be rescued from Arenas Key,
Yucatan, same yeeks ago. These men to
gather with a tMrd man, were abandoned
on that island by the schooner Anna. When
the Ossipee arrived one of the men was d ad.
BDd tbe surrounding circumstances pointed
to a homicide.
Upon the return of the vessel to New York
a report was sant to the department and the
men were held in custody pending action by
the authorities hers. Tho captain of the
schooner, an American, was exonerated from
all tdame aud tha question then arose was
there sufficient grounds for a prosecution of
the survivors for homicide.
The report was referred to the Department
of J ustice for an opinion by the Attorney
General, who aocided that no prosecution
could" follow. In the first place there was
evidence thattbe man bud been killed in self
defense; and then, again, whether or not a
murder had been committed the United
States would have no jurisdiction over the

The Federal Authorities Want to Try

Tbe coroner held an' inquist on the body
of Mr. Fleishbiin, of Belleville, III., who
was killed by Ilolzhay, tbe stage robber.
Thi jury recommended tbatHolzbay he held
to the next term of court. This will be in
October, but a complication has arisen since
the inquest. ,
United States Aeent Pulsifer arrived here
and claimed the rrisouer on behalf of tbe
United States. His demand was made on
the supposition.based on the prisoners eonfe
sion, that Holzhay robbed tbe United States
mail on the Wisconsin Central Road. The
authorities here will not listen to this claim.
The nrosecutioz attorney claims that ha
has a certain case against tbe murderer and
that he can and him down for life. On the
other hand it is siid that tbe killing is man
slaughter at the least and tbe possible pun
ishment is limited to fourteen years, y
Superintendent Dooohue, of . the Lake
Shore Railroad, believes he recognfz ?s in
Holghay the murderer of a laborer who was
killed five years ago after, being paid f 4 JO.
This is unlikely, as Holznny is ouly 22 years
old and would have been but 17 at the time
referred to by Donohue.

KILLED AN UMPIRE.
A Hot-headed Ball Player In Jail for
South Carolina, which was about the last
state to take up professional base ball, has
the unenviable notoriety of having killed the
first umpire. The killing occurred at Dar
lington, a small county seat about 150 miles
from Charleston. On that day a base ball
team from Wadesboro, N. C, went to Dar
lington to play a gam, all amateurs. The
North Carolina team carried with them a
youth named William Marshall, a son of a
prominent citizen of Wadesboro.
Younx Marshall was a college boy and
was, therefore, supposed to be up in the
points of the game. He was chosen for um
pire, both sides agree n? thereto. As the
game progressed tbe umpire made a decision
that did not siva satisfaction to the Darling
ton team. Hot words were passed, and sud
denly young Leon Darzan. son of Congress
man Dargan, of South Carolina, rushed up
with a h'avy bat in bis hind, and struck
Umpire Marshall a fearful blow across tbe
bead, knocking bim insensible. . Tbe umpire
was taken to Wadesboro on the first train,
but during the trip did not recover bis rea
son. He is a very popular young man at his
home, and held tbe position of teller in the
bank at Wadesboro. Young D&rgan was
arrested but was subsequently released on
bail on information received from Wades
boro that the umpire woul 1 probably re
cover. News was received that the umpire
bad died and Dargan has again bean ar
rested. ROASTED TO DEATH.

THE HATFIELD-M'COr FEUD.
Two of Ihe Cans Sent to Prison for
, Life for Three Murders.
The trial of Wall Hatfield has been con
cluded, at rineville, Ky. The jury found
him guilty of being accessory to the act of
murdering tbe three McCoys Tolbert, aged
thirty eight years, Randall,' nineteen, and
Farmer, fourteen. Alexander Muster con
fessed to the murder of Farmer, the youngest
and both were sentenced to tbe Peniteutiary
for life. Thee trials are a result of the Hat-field-McCoy
feud, which has caused so much
terror on the line of Kentucky and West
Virginia during the past two or three years.
It would be difficult to ascertain just bow
many lives have been sacrificed in this fam
ous vendetta. Indeed, it is doubtful if any
body knows. The bloody doinjs of the two
tribes first began to be made public the lat
ter prt of 1887, and since then scarcely a
month has potsed without news concerning
the feud. 1 here have boeu several trials but
few convictions. Now that most of the mur
derous gangs on both sides are dead or in
Erison, there is likely to be a cessation of
ostilities until another generation comes on.
