Thursday tuarkeu the soveniy-soveiith annivers- ary of the bi'.-t'ida-.- of Allen G. Tbur- mau. the ''Old of Ohio Democ- racy, and the Democrats of the nation made the occasion one to do homage to their distinguished mentor. From early morning every incoming train brought it ttie city a contingent of prominent Democrats from abroad, and all day Judge Thurman was the recipient oJ congratulatory calls. Ex-1'rosident Cleveland came in on an early train and at once proceeded. 10 the Executive Mansion. An hour later Senator Brica arrived at the mansion and the ex-Pres- ident and himself made an early call on the distinguished Ohioan. Ex-Senator Thurman last night an- nounced his absolute withdrawal from public life. Tbe occasion selected by the venerable statesman for this decla- ration was the banquet tendered to him by the political club which boars bis name, in honor of the seventy-seventh anniversary of his birth. It to- wards tho close of an address delivered at times with considerable difficulty and in a voice which could be heard but a few yards distant, that, suddenly gath- ering up his strength and throwing his shoulders backward, his eyes swept the great throng that had gathered to do him homage, and he spoke as follows: friends: Let me say to -you in all sincerity, and without the least mental reservation that I am not, nor shall I be again a candidate for office." The stillness which for a couplo of moments followed this declaration was intense. It seemed as though everyone of tho thousand or more on whom the words had fallen felt that he had lost a friend. Then, as with trembling tones, the speaker went on to say that he felt that he had been sufficiently honored by his party, there was a revulsion of feeling and the vast audience could no longer restrain itself; every man arose to his feet and there went forch cheer after cheer which might have been heard for blocks away. The banquet itself was a magnificent affair. Nothing like it has ever before been attempted in Ohio. The Four- teenth Regiment Armory had been transformed into fairyland. rafters of its ceilings and its whitewashed walls were hidden from viow by thousands of yards of bright bunting and silken flags and banners innumerable. Around the floor, rising tier above tier, were the choicest products of the hothouse, while above all towered majestic palms and fragrant exotics. The orchestra was hidden from view in a mass of foliage. At tbe southern, end of the hall, upen a platform heaped with palms and roses in bloom, were crayon portraits of ex- President Cleveland and tire especial guest of the evening. The table 'of honor rested upon a platform running half tho length of tbe'hal1. Longitudi- nal with this there were sixteen tables, each with accommodations for eight guests. Every chair had its occupant, while there were hundreds more who, finding it impossible to gain a place upon the floor, were content to view the proceedings from tho gallery. It was shortly after eight o'clock when the cheering from the large crowd which bad gathered on the dutside announced the arrival of the distin- guished guests, and when the ex-Sena- tor, arm iu arm with President Lentz, of tbe Thurman Club, appeared upon the scene, closely followed by ox- Presi- dent Cleveland and ex-Senator McDon- ald, the cheering was hearty and pro- longed. Mr. Thurman sat on tbe right of the president, his son, Allan W., be- ing next to him, and then in succession Senator McDonald, Don M. Dickinson, W. C. P. lireckenridge, General Thomas Ewing and Governor Boyd. To the left of the chair were seated Grover Cleve- land, General B. A. Harrison, Bishop Watterson, Daniel Lament and Govern- or Jackson. Nearly two hours were oc- cupied in discussing the elaborate menu. It was after ten o'clock when President Lentz rapped for order and in a few -well chosen words proposed tbe toast of "Our Guest" Mr. Thurman. on rising to re- spond, was greeted with applause which lasted several moments. Silence hav- ing been restored be spoke as follows: I not here to-night to jnake an elaoorata Speech. I am here to express in a few sentences my heartfelt appreciation of the bonor you have sokiadlysoeanttodo me: to thank with my whole soul my neighbors, my fellow-cltizens of Ohio ud tbe diatingaishad gentlemen from other States for their mark of friendship and esteem.

Hurled Upon the Rocks With Tre- Force and Engulfed bv Mountainous St-as. Sudden. Ovprwhelm'ng Hiitl Complete nster Which Cave tlie on KoMril Not it tlotueut iu Which to Save Their I.IVM. LONDON. Nov. advices from Cape liueick in the province of Corruna, Spain, the scene of the wreck of the IJiiMsii torpedo cruiser Serpent, state that at eleven o'clock Monday night, in the midst of the impenetrable darkness, tho war ship struck the roofs, bows on. Sho was hurled upon tbo rocks with such tremendous force that their jag-ged edges tore her koel as readily as a match might bo split by the sharpest knife. A moment later a mammoth wave lifted the cruiser high above tho reef, only to dash hor back upon its stony face the next instant with a groat hole stove- in her bottom. With tho sea the un- fortunate vessel slipped from the rocks into deep water. Through tho awful gap in her hull the water rushed in by tho hundreds of tons and then, in tho midst of the awful blacknoss of the night, tho howling of tho wind and the hoarse roar of the waters beating against the fatal reefs, the cruisor Ser- pent with nearly 300 men plunged to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. At the moment of the fearful catas- trophe tho great majority of the ship's company were below decks, unconscious that death was all around them. They never reached the deck. On deck, those whose duties kept them there, found themselves so suddenly confronted with the deadly peril that it was impossible for thorn to launch a single boat So overwhelming, so sudden and complete was the disaster that of the great ship's company no humin being made a sign or uttered a cry, as they wore swal- lowed up by the waters. The throe wretched survivors of the calamity, torn by the cruel rocks, to which they mar- volously clung until rescued, have beon removed to tho hospital where they are now being cared for. They will be or- dered homo to England as so n as their condition will permit of thoir removal. The Admiralty bas directed a rigid investigation regarding the loss of the Serpent. Meanwhile there is endless gossip and rumor as to tho causes of the disaster. Exports condemn tho con- struction of the whole class of vessels to which tbo Serpent belonged, and in- sist that safety and endurance are both sacrificed in thia typo in tho desire to make speed. Tho Serpent is described by those critics as top-heavy over tbo engines, and unfit for a dangerous soa such as that along the Spanish coast It is also asserted tbaf-in tho effort to decrease her weight such thin plates were used that tho steel actually bent with the water's pressure. The crew of the ill-fated vessel in- cluded many veteran sailors drafted from older vessels, also an' unusually larco number of young mon rocontly instructed in torpedo service. Letters and telegrams from frantic relatives are pouring in on the Admiralty, and the offices are so besieged by inquirers that a special force of police has boon de- tailed to assist the usual guard. CHAPTER OP HOKKOKS. Two Workmen Crushed to Death Under an A Friend of tho Acol- Oent and Suicides. EKIE, Pa., Nov. While moving an old seven-ton engine in the shop of tho Jarecki Manufacturing Company yes- terday morning the blocks slipped, al- lowing the monstfr rnms to fall, crush- ing .Tames McSlay, tho foreman of tho works, and a Swedish laborer named Benson. McSlay diou on his way to tho hospital and Benson can not survive, having received internal injuries, lioth men were horribly mangled. Henry Sutler, until lately a fellow workman with McSlay, was near tho works when tho accident happened and, learning of his friend's death, it so worked uoon his mind that ho home and shot himself, dying almostin- stantly. He had beon in ill-health for some time and oat of work. ROCHESTER, lad.. Lawsoa M. Noyer, for several years editor of Akron Eagle, at Akron.
