CONGRESS.OF CATH0UC&
Colored Members of That Faith to Meet
in Washington.
AN OCCASION OF MUCH INTEREST.
.
Cardinal Gibbous Olics Ills Appro nl of
the Undertaking,
A coloied Catholic Congress, tho firstf tho
kind ever held In tho world, will asscmblo In
this city on the 1st of next January. Slnco
the war the Calbollc hierarchy In this country
have been actltcly engaged In the work of
extending the Influence ot tho Church among
tbq colored people, but so unostentatiously
hae they gone about tho matter that atten
tion bss not been directed to it, except in
Isolated Instances, the Protestant denomina
tions taking little or no notice of tbo 'move
ment. It Is well known tbat tho Catholic religion
is tbe only one- recognized by tho black citi
zens of tbe republics of Haytl and Santo Do
mingo, tho ono for a long time dominated by
the French and the other by tho Spanish (lov
eminent. Tho blacks In all tboSpAnlsh and
Portuguese Wert Indies are Catholics.
The Orlclnntor of the Undertaking.
The Congress was proposed by Mr. Daniel
A. ltudd, ot Cincinnati, tbe editor of tho
American Catholic Tribune, tho only paper ot
Its kind In tbo country devoted to tho colored
Catholic Interests, owned and controlled by a
colored man. Mr. ltudd has been a Catbqllc
all his life. Hols jet n very young man,
thoroughly equipped lor bis work, and enjoy
ing tbe esteem and confidence of such high
Church dignitaries as Cardinal fllbbons, ot
Jlaltlmore, aud Archbishop Elder, ot his dio
cese, who have heartily Indorsed bis ptoposed
congress, and othsrs.
An Krn In History.
Mr. Rudd saya that this Congress promises
to niako an era In tho history of tho American
negro. Thero aro tens of thousands of col
ored Catholics in the South. He says: "In
Texas, Louisiana. Mississippi, Florida, South
Carolina, Kentucky, Missouri and Maryland
thero are large numbers, and among them
some o' tbe best and most Influential families
ot tbe race. Tho negro loves ceremony, and
as ho develops intellectually bo fclll become
better ablo to understand and appreciate tbo
truths and the grandeur of tbe Catnollc faith,
the philosophy of which has withstood the
tests of agcr, and In every combat has won tbo
victory."
Washington's Colored Catholics.
St. Augustine's Church in this city in ono ot
tho handsome edifices in tho District und has
a largo and growing membership. Colored
Catholics aro moro numerous than ono unin
formed would suppose. Thero is ono
church, one -school, un.d ono orphsnago In
New York city; oue church, ono school nnd
ouo couvcut In lilchmond; ono church and
two schools In Washington; ouo church and
one school at Keswick; ono church nnd ono
school each at Petersburg and Lexington; one
church and school lu Louisville; ouo In Hards
town; ono church, two convents and ono
school In St, Louis; ono cburcb, one orphan
ago aud one school lu Cincinnati; one church
and school In San Antonio; ono convent and
orphanage in Kansas City ; ono church and
school In Savannah; two churches nnd
schools In Charleston; one school In Memphis;
ono near Jackson; one church, several schools
and one convent In Now Orleans; a church
and school In Qulncy; one church and ono
school In St. Paul, and many others.
Woric Amons"thoCoJorcd l'enple.
"Wbafxffort.lsoour bejflg put forth by the
Catholic Church among Ibe colored people?"
was asked.
"Schools, orphanages, convents and semi
naries aro being established all over tho coun
try. MaDy of the old schools aro making spe
cial efforts to secure colored studcuts. Thero
aro, In Ualtlmore thrco churches, thrco day
schools, ono seminary, two convcuts and
several other institutions exclusively for col
ored people All tho Catholic churches
there, as clsewbcro in the world, aro open at
all times to colored people on the samo con
ditions tbat they aro to other people"
Mr. ltudd continued: "It Is'my firm convic
tion that, within twenty or twenty-five J cars,
there will be moro colored people In tho fold
of tho Catholic Church than In any other"
There are two orders of nuua In this country
composed cntlicly ot colored women, one of
wblcb, tbe Oblate Sisters of Providence, with
mother house at Ualtlmore, has branches lu
different parts ot the country.
Thero aro two publications dovotod to tbo
work among the colored peoplo St. Joseph's
Advocate, published quarterly by tho Mis
sionary Fathers ot Ualtlmore, and the Ameri
can Catholic Tribune.
There can be no doubt tbat tbe'JtVashlugton
Congress will bo numerously attended, and
that the work among tho colored people will
be greatly stimulated by reason of the atten
tion tbat will be thereby directed t,o tho work.
Joint 1'nlltlcnl Dlsoiisilon at Occoqiian.

Parking II. P Cnrs.
Superintendent Carter, of tho Ualtlmore &
Potomac ltnllrtad Company, has written tbo
Commissioners, In response to their complaint
about tbe parking of cars on Virginia avenue
southeast. Tbo complaint of tbo Commis
sioners was made to President Bowlo, and was
to tho effect tbat tho several tracks on this
avenue arc usually filled with cats, and they
mako It exceedingly dangerous at street
crossings, because they cut oil tho view and
hide approaching tralus Mr. Carter In his
letter does not promise to stop tho parking of
cars on Virginia aveuue, but states that he has
given Instructions to his representative in this
city to uso tt)o utmost caro lu the use of theso
tracks, and sco that tho curs are so placed ns
not to obstruct tho view of parties going over
tho street crossings. Ho thanks the Commis
sioners for tho courteous manner in which they
brought tbe matter to the company's notice.
The nolunnre Avenuo Crossing.
Evan II. Tucker, of 100 F street northeast,

Cobbles Instead of Grnnlto Illoeks,
President Hart, ot tbo Washington A
Georgetown Railroad Company, roccntly
wroto tho Commissioners that If they Insisted
on tho laying ot gran I to blocks bctwocn tbo
tracks of his -read on Pennsylvania avenue,
between Fifteenth nnd Seventeenth streets, it
would prevent tho proposed improvement In
tho tracks. Capt. Symous, In bis report to the
Commissioners, disagrees from Mr. Hurt on
this question, but lu view ot tbo fact that a
different motive power ,may bo substituted for
the present one. bo recommends that selected
cobblo bo allowed to bo put in Instead ot
granite.

Various Local Muttors,
The Commissioners have approved tho re
quest of G. Wanster and others to have tho

done for ton cents por cubic yard. This Is tho
only way by which tbu District can bear any
share of the expense ot doing tbe work at

Tbo Western Union Telegraph Company has

It has been alleged by an employo of tho

that the facts recited by tbo lady aro substan

New York, Oct. 29. Tho World's Washing
ton correspondent lelographsau Interview with
President Cleveland at Oak View last e cnlng.
Tho PresUUnt's attention was called to tho
published statement that whllo lu New York
ho had assured Gen. P. II. Collins md John
Uoylo O'Reilly tbat If Lord Sackvllle was not
recalled within thrco days ho would bo given
his paKspqrts.
Tbo President said that that statement was
entirely wrong. Ho did have a conversation
with Messrs. Collins and O'RelllyVeut It was
alracst wholly dovotcd to the subject of tho
Kxtradltlon Treaty, wblcb was postponed by
tho recent nctlon ot tbo Senate.
"Tho letter from Lord Suckvtllo wis only
briefly referred to," said tho President. "I
brought tbe matter up myself, aod took occa
slon to assure them tbat they would havo no
fault to find with what had' been dune nnd the
future course to be pursued In the matter.
I told Mr. Collins and .Mr. O'Reilly that I
thought tha people hardly regarded me as a
coward In these matters, and, when tbo facts
In tbo caso should become kuown, tho peoplo
of this Notion would feel satisfied with tho
course of tbe Stale Department. Tbo subject
was then dropped."
Tho Kxtradltlon Trenty IXneuxsecl,
Tho President was then asked whit point of
tho oxtradltton treaty was discussed.
Ho replied! "It was represented to mo by
theso gentlemen that It has been pcrsistcutly
asserted that tho extradition treaty with Great
Ilritaln which has been published, contemp
lated tho surrender ot persons charged with
fiolltlcat offenses. I do uot understand bow It
s possible to so distort language Anybody
reading tbo trcatv would plainly seo that it
contemplates no such thing.
"Tho treaty, as nt first drawu, provided for
the extradition of persons barged with injury
to property, whereby tho llfo of any person Is
endangered, If A crlo.16 accdrdlugtu tho l.iws

Cannot Tell What Will Ho Done.
In reply to a question ns to whejher or not
any demand has been made upon the Urltlsb
Government for tbo recall Ot Lord Sackvllle,
and, It not, whether any assurances have been
received that tho UrltlsU Government will
order him to leave Washington, the President
said: "I cannot tell you at this time Just
exactly what has been Jono. This Is a matter
of tho greatest delicacy. It concerns our ro
tations with a forelgu power. We must do
these things with all duo dignity and In ac
cordant Kith tbo amenities that must prevail
between two Governments on friendly terms
w Ith each other.
"Thero can bo uo unseemly haste. Tbo
people must bo patient aud they must bo as
sured that everything has been douo that wo
could consistently do. I novcr'yet havo dis
cussed matters of Stato with tha outsido peo
ple, nor cn.I do so now."
Tbe Treeldent was asked It ho thought tho
publication ot tbo Suckvillc-Wcst letter would
bo likely to havo any effect on tbo result of
tho comlug election.
Ills Reply Was Very Guarded.
"It Is impossible," said he, "for mo to Judge
accurately, hutl havo every conlldencoVn tho
Intelligence and good senso ot tbu' people ot
the United 8tatcs, and Ido.not thftk they will
bo misled by an eplsoda of this character.
Annthor Cnmpalsn Trlclr.
"By tho way," 6ald tho President, laugh
ingly, "1 havo received an Intimation that
another campaign trick Is being prepared with
tho Intention ot springing it on tho voters of
tho country on the cvo ot tbo cluctlbn. While
I do uot glvo much credcucoto tho rumor,
jet It would bo as well to head it oft In ad
vance. "I have hecu informed that if is proposed
that I shall recelvo a day or tfo before tbo
election a scries of engrossed 'resolutions or
some other acknowledgment of Hlio sort, pur
porting to comofrom somo English club of tho
Cobdcn order. Tilts testimonial Is to come In
tho nature of n compliment to tha Administra
tion for Its course upon tho tariff question."
Tlie'Presldont Knjoja It.
Tbo President appears to enjoy the ludicrous
features of this rumor, aud bo went on to
observe that, unfortunately for the complete
success of this enterprise, the Sackvlllo
Munhlson correspondence would havo the
effect of rendering tho publlo extremely sus-
fiiclous of any further attempt to Imposo upon
ts credulity.
Tho President concluded the Interview by
saying: "Let tho peoplo have a little patience;
they will not find mo a coward."
Who "Murehlson" Is.
Tho World's Los Angeles special says that
"Murchlsou" Is supposed to bo A. W. llcll, a
Republican Uwyer of Pomona.
Other I.ettuM wero Sent.
Letters of a similar character to tho ono
answered by Lord Sackvlllo wero sent to
clergymen, being worded much Ilka the
Muablsou letter, and intended to tiap some
Prohibitionist into saying that a voto for
Cleveland would bo as good as a voto for
Fltk, as It would be a voto against the Repub
lican party.,
Ouo such reply was tecclvod, and It was
used locally by tbe Republicans, but as tho
writer was not a prominent man, it attaactcd
llttlo attention. Letters similar to tbo Sack
vllle letter wcro also sent to Joseph Chamber
lain and Sir Charles Tupper, but they did uot
bite at tho bait,

The Letter Not a Iltundor.
The Herald's Washington itpcclal says tho
belief grows that Lord SaclcyiUa's letter was
not a blunder, but was Inspirod'tiy a dedro on

wlion eight yenro old ho suffered about a
year with a dlstttrbanro In tha head
which occasionally caused partial
paralysis. It was only six months
ngo that ho realised that his
affairs wcro so seriously Involved
that ho must address all his powers to
tholr adjustment. Whllo trying to
straighten tlilng'i out ho learned that tbo
men whom ho had trusted had bcott
faithless to him. Uo becamo nshamed
of his over-confldenco in his abilities,
and in his judgment of men. Ho becamo
dlKgustcd with business, nnd longed to
bo freed from tho cxtonslvo relations ho
had contracted. IIo cared only to
snvo ti fraction of tho business
and to have tlmo to onjoy a peaceful,
quiet llfo with bin family and tho ftlcnds
who had remained faithful. Ho thought
ho saw how to closo tho property out,
leaving this small margin, lint whllu
pursuing; this end his strength was glvltifr
way. Ho began to suiter from sleopless
ncM. Ho was too tired to sleep. Latent
night ho would fall Into tho dcop Blcopof
exhaustion, which seemed to his wlfo
Ilko that of death.
IIo had periods of collapse and on
Monday ho said that if this condition
continued he would givo his son a power
of attorney and stop work nit mother.
He neglected to do so and on Wednes
day went home exhausted, unablo to cat
or sleep. Ho rosu tho next morning
without having slept and left homo with
out eating. He had said last spring that
when his son was of age, ho would mako
a now will, appointing him as an execu
tor, Ills sou was twenty-one only six
days beforo. Consequently the will wns
made that afternoon. Ho wroto his wlfo
that ho was going to Islington to tako an
opiate and get a night's rest, If ho
came homo, ho said, ho might worry
her, whereas all ho needed wns rest.
Ho doubtless felt that If ho did not
get this rest ho could not hold out
moro than a fow days longer. Ho went
to Islington and prepared for tlio night's
rest in tho old liouso by putting on a
light overcoat. It is evident that ho foil
into tho sleep of exhaustion, us custom
