which It wa> distinctly stated that this was no

book and wrote, showing the strong 'eellng of our
people here on the subject, sending copies of promi?
nent staff officers' letters and giving our rfa^m?
for the maintenance of the law. We were told In
reply that Americans mu^t come Irto line with
other countries, and the law be abandoned. We re?
nted, and crossed out the pa..?graph In the books,
and t?id.Xojidon authorities oT the harm such a
change' would Jtcc<>nn.>lt'*h. They wrote us the fo.
lowlng ultimatum on the subject:
"You should let It be known Immediately that
this Is your own view of the matter (as though our
own view had not been that of our officers on th?
question) and say privately to officers who confer
with you on the subject that you regret very much
that you issued the orders you did. and that
they were issued with a misapprehension on the
subject and without the knowledge of International
Headquarters, und that of course the General has
had far wider experience than you have:" to which
we replied: "We cannot possibly do this, as with
our present feeling it would be Inconsistent, for. In
stead of wishing we liad not issued such a rule, on
the contrarv, we only wish you would dec.arc this i
law to the whole world." we have since learned
that leaders in other countries have had their Judg?
ments forced on the same subject. The effect of
this Issue was not so much the determining of
what happened In the case of this particular rule
(which we have quoted as an example) as In
evincing their pollcv In Ignoring the judgment of
responsible officers and the varying conditions pf ,
different countries, and In'endeavoring to force us I
to state that which would have been untrue and
an outrage on our consciences.
LAST INTERVIEW WITH THE GENERAL
?. During his last interview with us in America the
General stated that he wished us to assist the strug- j
?Hag work In Canada by giving Up a feSWsl poitron
gf the United States to be annexed to the Domfn- I
Ion. We. espivssed-eur -willingness .to .further as?
sist our comrades in Canada with money '(having ]
already helped them financially), but that th? an?
nexation of American territory to Canada was
quite Impracticable and wouid damage the work.
Our arguments carried no weight, and the General
considered them unreasonable. When he spoke of
the National feeling, he closed the controversy "by
drawing his finger down ttw map of North America
In thr?rc sections, declaring that ultimately he In?
tended to cut the country m three, joining ench to a
section of Canada to break down any National feel?
ing existing. We said such division would ruin the
work In this country, where the unbroken union of
the States means so much. After the General's re?
turn to England a lengthened correspondence fol?
lowed. In which he gave a number of reasons
against this annexation. Th High they could not
carry our Judgment, they fore? d u? to make the an?
nexation, and at the pres.nt true the Army work In
Dakota. HOTTi* "Montani and North Washington Is
governed from Toronto, and we have been t ?id tha;
the officers hardly dare to let the citizens of thes??
cities know that their money goes to the Canadian
headquarters It was intended upon our removal
from command to" livide this country/, so we had
built into our National headquarters a stone troni
each State to exemplify "the G????, one and in?
separable."
10. Though we repeatedly urged after the resigna?
da? o? our Chief Secretary? Wil.iam Evans.
that, for th?? saks Of the advance und safety of the
work in America, it was absolutely necessary to
choose for that position an officer from the ranks in
this country wna was an American cliizen and
familiar with the f h might and sentiment of the
American people, our request was ignored by the ?
International Headqaartere We were J V<1 ihm ?
the officer hoMiaa t:..? ? .-dtion must be sain- m? ]
trained In Enj.taBd and. well knfiwn *n the general, j
and chosen by Jalernatloosd Headquarters. We ?
had reluctantly to restrict our choice to an officer
from England. Colonel Badie was seat.
CSELESS TO HO TO IX)NDON.
11. In relation to cur going to London for
conference, wjth the General? - we JbeUeYed.il wa?
useless, as we had had lengthy and unsatisfactory
Interviews with him her.?
We consider the above ?hfficlent reasons for our
letter of January 81.
Apart from the above reasons, had no more trans?
pired than the unjust manifestos and unchristian
assertions made by the leaders of the Armv and
their repr?sentatives in this country, particularly
their comparison, of ?ur'nf?veriieh't wTth "the XoorV
scandal. ' their statement that we feil bebeath "the
weight of flattery and temptation," the unrebukel
and excused assertion by one of their trusted"staff
officers that I (Ra!llngt?>n Booth) am Inspire, and
the most abominable reftc'doo* upon the private
character of Mrs Booth. whlCI have proceeded from
another staff officer, w<_ haJ sufficient reason for re?
fusing to entertain any suggestion of returning to
the ranks of the old movement.
By remaining in the movement we did not think
that our influence would have affected the points
at Issue, as our Judgment was disregarded, btft now
that this separat.on has occurred, there will un?
doubtedly, for policy's sake, be great caption used
in all these matters.
There will undoubtedly be denials and counter
statements mide ti, the above, bu: we can only add
that we believe that our lives before the American
public will at least exonerate us from Insincerity
of motive and unworthinesa nf nurpose. We wish
the Army no evil, and would ri t have thus written
had they taken our advice and remained silent.

HIS OPINION OF P?STKP. GLEN.
Commander Booth said last night that he had it
on authority which he could not doubt, that when
Peter Glen had desfted to Join his forces he went
to a friend and declared that the Commander had
been bad'.y treated, whereupea the friend decided to
help the cause: and after hi? resignation from the
Salvation Army and up to the time he returned to
its ranks, he continued to receive his salary from
that organl2ation. thus being practically In the
service of the Army and the Volunteers at one and
the same time.
PROBABLY BTILBOTTS BODY.
A MAN ANSWKHINO H13 DESCRIPTION" FOVKD
DEAD IX THE ML'I) OX THE HANK OF
THE HAHLKM.
The body of a man. apparently abou?. sixty year*
old, was found lying in the mud on the west bank o'
the Harlem Hiver yesterday afternoon. A Cardease
found In one of his pocket* bore the name, "Horac?
T. Stllson." and the address, "No. 266 Maesachusetts
eve.. C?Rlpn/'. Th? p?Uice of the West one-hundred
and-flfty-seeond-st. station ?ay that the name ani'
address correspond with the description of a Hus?
ton lawyer who disappeared from hi? home at 10
O'clock on Friday morning last. They believe that
Mr. Stllson came to this city, and while wandering
about the Loife Star and Empire Hoat club?
houses, between which the body was found, acci?
dentally fell Into the water while the river was at
high tide Saturday night.
Evidently the man mad?; an effort to eave his own
life, for there were several deep footprints about
the spot. When the body was discovered both legs
were firmly entrenched In a slanting position in the
mud, while the back and head were partially Im?
mersed In the water.
The tide had gone out at noon yesterday when
James Mulhearn. Janitor of the Lone Star Hoar Club
and James Barrett, of the umpire Boat Club, who
were (anting on the b-wtk near the boathoueoa, euw
the dead forro. They labored in vain for two hour?
to rescue the body, nut not until 2 o'clock did they
succeed. WKJi tbe assistance of Policeman Mulcare,
of the West One-hundred-and-flfty-second-st. sta?
tion, they finally lassoed a.stout rope about the
man's waist and dragged the body ashore.
THE RLY. MR. MORAS TALKHK BACK.
TR?CELES IX CimiKT CHL'BCH, BABYLON, LONG
I8LAXD. LIKELY TO BE TAKEN BE?
FORE THE 1 UHI 1U1?.
The Rev. Samuel Moran, rector of Christ Church,
In Babylon, Long Island, yesterday morning spoko
of the troubles which had been agitating the church
for some years, and whfth reached a head at the
Easter election, when the rector declared a vestry
elected which received the smaller number of votes.
He baaed his decision on challenges made against
the light of some of those who voted to do so.
The trouble la of long standing In the church. Mr.
Koran Is liked by all save a few who have a real
or fancied grievance, axalnst him. Impartial ob?
server? wn.'i are members of the church, and who
bave taken no pert In the factional fight, say he la
the victim of circumstances, coming to take charge
\of a divided church and trying to unite it, a thank
teas task at best.
Mr- Muran ?aid he was Arm In his decision. The
vestry he ydeclared elected wae the one that had
been elee.ed. It was the one that would serve. He
then reverted at length to the troubles of the con?
gregation. He said sis other rectors of the ohurch
had bee? forced to resign thnhigh no fauft d? their
own. He had been slandered and abused, but he
was going to stay. He did not mind if the church
did wtrftbold his salary far a few months, fot it
would Anally have to be paid. Other parishes had
been offered to him end he. had declined to-accept
them, preferring to remain where he wan and not
retire because a few wished him to do so. He said
the opposition did not recognise his rights, and did
not seem to realise he had any rights. He wanted
harmony in the church, but he must have his rights
ae pastor respected, and he must he obeyed. The
friends of the minister say that the address was an
able one *nd are greatly pleased with It.
The opposition vestry will meet this week, and
its memoers ?ay that the rector will be obliged to
reeegritse It. There are three member* of the op?
position vestry who are membwrs of the oar U?
elared elected, end the active men In the opposi
tier say that these three men will side with them
net act with the vestry declared elected by Mr.
. It la expected the matter will be carried be
the Bishop.

AN ADPRBM To REPUBLICANS. -^
The following address has been Issued from
the headquarters o? the McKinley League, No
2s Kast Twenty-secoiid-s! :
To the Republican? ol New-York:
The time has come for plain speech. The Hon.
Levi p. Morton, though professedly a candidate
for President of Ih? United states, :a not sorioualy
in the raci He never was, although a l'Iati Stale
Convention prematurely launched his candidacy
arid a number of eminent Republican? have
effusively indorsed him as a mark Of their |n-rsonai
friendship ami este.-in. There is not. however, ?
man in the Qovernod* following, whether he be a
Platt man or a Mstlonlte, who iloes not realise that
the Morion canvas? la hopeless, and sdraiti as
much in private conversation Mr. Morton cannot
w.n the Presidential nomination: the reasons why
this Is Impossible an- perfectly apparent. They awy
be? briefly summarised:
First? He is in his seventy-second year He would
he Seventy-seven years old before he could llnlsh
h.s t'-rm of ofTic.?. He is already pas: th? age at
which Justices of the Supreme Court are compelled
to?retire from active duty. The Presidency of the
United States is, perhaps, the most exacting, and
laborious office in the world Compared to It the
Premiership of (?reat Britain Is a holiday task. Mr.
Morton would he older at the time o? h.s Inaugura
tlon than any of his predecessors have been. Will?
iam Henrv Harrison; the oldest man ever chosen
President of the Cniled States, died a few weeks
after his Inrriguratlon, at the ape of sIxty-elKl'?'
Eaehary Taylor died in office in his sixty??!* t h
vear. Buchanan was sixty-six when Inaugurated,
Jackson sixty-two and John Adarns sixty-one All
the other Presidents were under s.xty. Twelve wer??
under fifty-five.
Second?He Is the candidate of a faction, not of
the united Republican party of this State The
formidable movement for AlcKinley In the recent
State Convention demonstrate.! that fact The con?
vention was designed to lie a Morton ratification
meeting. The ordinary rules nnd usages of au.n
bodies were shameless'}? violated so as to stifle an
expression of the people's will. All the proceeding?
were carefully prearranged. A tralnload of thug?
and heeler? was brought down from Alrfftny to
pack the galleilrs. The permanent chal?.nan went
out of his way to remind the delegata? that they
were not expected to think of anv candidate sa' e
Morton. Oag rule was applied to prevent a protect
Yet. notwithstanding all these plans and precau?
tions, the convention was almost stampeded for
McKlnJev. and 10** of the delegate? openlv voted In
favor of Indorsine the candidate from Ohio On?
of the Congress District conventions of this Slate
has already chosen McKinley dfbgate* to St. Lou!?,
and others mav follow.
Third-While the first year of Govern'r Morton-?
administration was commendable, he has. Hnce the
Presidential ambition was Instilled Into him. |>la"ed
himself and his high Office entirely at the disposal
of the State ma, hin- He ha* winked at violation?
of the spirit of the ???? Service law ard appointed
two notorious spjllemen as State Commissioners of
the merit svstem. He ha? placed other machine poli?
tician?7 of a low grade !n Important positions for
which they were plalnlv unfitted. If he has not
openly countenance 1 he ha? at le^st failed to rebuke
in public the outrageous fraud? perpetrated )n h'e
Interest In th'..? rltr bv a combination of the dis?
credit**' . KepuUh in leaders with Tammany Hail.
Tn brief. h<? has put himself In this canvas? entirely
In T'latt's keeping. It '? true that the f',overnor?hip
of this State in falrlv considered a stepping-stone to
the Presidency, bul It Is eouallv true that no prede?
cessor of Governor Morton. Whig. Republican or
Uemorrat, has -ver been thus ? imlnatel who had
not demonstrated to the satisfaction of the n*Ople
his absolute Independence of party bosses. What?
ever we mav say, a? Republicans, against Samuel J.
Tilden or orover Cleveland, we must admit that
while the>- occupied 'he Kxecitive Mansion tin State
boss dictated legislation at Albany, or controlled the
most Important apriolntment? to office They were,
at leaet. the head of the State government No
discredited machine compelled their obedience; no
unprlnclnled leader openly boasted of his power over
them. They fourht their party bosses of high and
low degree. Neither of them was ?ver put forward
a? the machine's candidate. The Democratic Platt
of that time, John Kellv, fought the nomination of
Tilden and of Cleveland, and tried to prevent the
election of at le^?1 on:- of 'hem.
Fourth?Mr Morton will nof be honestly sup
parted even by the machine. He is simply a mean?
wher?b> Mr. Platt hones to gain absolute control
of the delegates from this State. He M a pawn In
the game wh;-h Mr. Platt, Mr. (juay and other Re?
publican boss?? of the country are playing to dom?
inate th- Natlona' Convention and dispose of the
Presidency in the way that will best suit their own
selfish and unworthy Interests.
M'KINLEY THE LOGICAL CANDIDATS,
William McKlnlev Is not only the logical but the
leading candidate of the Republican party. He is
Uflquestlon?bly the choice of the great m.-ms of
voters, the men who pay the taxes and do the work
"of the country. Unhampered by the schemes of the
politicians. Major McKinley would be nominated by
acclamation at St Louis; and he will yet, notwith?
standing all efforts on the part of Mr. Platt and Mr.
Quay to prevent It, If the honest Republicans of
New-York Btaie do their duty. William McKinleys
opponents In this city and State are, for the most
part tie men who have disgraced the Republican
part;- by resorting to fraudulent enrolment and
packed primary election*. Mr. McKlnley's enemies
are our eneml*.*; his friends are our friends; his
principles are our principles?the eternal principles
of the Republican party. ?.
The McKinley I.eapue of the State of New-York
was organized at a mass-meeting of Republicans
held in Cooper T'nlon, on Monday evening, March 2.1,
189C. It was one of the largest par.y ?gatherings peer
held in that historic old hall. A furious snowstorm
waa raging, and yet It was said by the police and
those out? le that hundreds unable to secure ud
mlsslon were turned away. The 0bJ*J3t o' this
league Is to enable the hones! Republicans cf this
State to express In a practical way th.-Ir view* In
the matter of Presidential nomi.n r.Mr-.s, w?vch las
been dented 'hem In this ofty and else.vnere ty the
fraudulent methods of the S'.ate me?.iine. ;t la
entirely within the facts to say that tiwe-fourths
of the Republicans of this Common?realtl. ere In
favor of the nomination of the g??at rtplunder of
the protection doctrine, and yet th. State macho e
propesa? to go to St Lou!? with tne majority cf the
delegates pledged to the support of loveen,,r Mor?
ton, who Is not, and never was. ? -"rims candidate.
To offset the action of the machine In Its mis?
representation of the party sentiment In this State,
li ir proposed by the League to send a delegation
of at least five hundred representative members of
the party from this State to St. Louis. These gen?
tlemen will go at their own expense and speak
the honest convictions of the majority. Arrange?
ments are already being made for this pa?t y, and
two trains are being negotiated for, one on tie
Pennsylvania and one on the New-York Central
Railroad. The necessary expenses of this round
trip will not be over ISO; possibly less. Those who
desire to go will kindly forward their names to
this headquarters as quickly ae possible.
The- League has secured . headquarters at the
State CJub. No. 29 Kast Twenty-second-?!., within
two minutes' walk of the Fifth Avenue Hotel. The
expenses .for maintaining these headquarters and
pushing the work of organization have been de?
frayed thu? far entirely by the local friends of Mr.
McKinley. The expenses are not large. For rent,
meetings, clerical assistance, postage and Inci?
dentale between now and the convention we ?hall
not need more than ?,000. Subscriptions for this
purpose will be received at headquarters and proper
acknowledgment made. *\ statement of the ex?

Mlimlngham. Ala.. April 12 (Special).?As a result
! of a two days' conference In this city between Mc

L tically agreed that a split State convention on April
H will be avoided by mutual concessions. The
basis of compromise ?rill he. It la stated, the follow?
ing: Four delegates to the National Convention to
be s.lect.d by the State Convention, one for Reed,
one for Morton and two for McK nley. K. A. Mose
ley, the Reed leader and chairman of the State
Committee, Is scheduled to withdraw Troni his race
for re-eiectlon In favor of William Vaughn, McKin?
leyite. This Is to occur a few days before the
Stale Convention meets.
The osvrtures were made by the combination
leiders, who realized that It was their only chance
f..r any urlconteated delegate from the State at
large. The deal will throw the State machinery Into
McKinleys hands. W. R. Andrew'-^, of Philadel?
phia, a Qudy man, and one of the National anti
McKinley combination leaders, and Charles J. Alli?
son, of Kniixvllle, Tenn., first cousins of Mr. Mc?
Kinley, took part In the conferences leading to ihe
result.

According to "The Binghamton Herald," the Platt
men In the Southern Tier are openly .tasking for
Reed. "The ten chalrmenshlps," It adds, wan ?
Reed gave to New-York were not given In vain.
It seems to "The Ogdensburg Journal" high time
for Mr. Fassett to declare himself one way or the
other. "We think," says "The Journal," "Fassett
jught to stop flirting. It is plain there must be
something wrong with the man who once stpppea. at

Praise from Sir Hubert: This appeared in "The

time to time it- the personnel, the offices, the objects,
the bylaws und the guiding plan? of the State
Club, In Fast Twenty-second-st., It remains con?
spicuously the rallylng-ground of the only aggr.-s
slve antl-I'laft men In town, who fight the ex-Sen
taor's supremacy In his own way and with his own
weapons, and do not abate their hostility by reason
of any side ?piestlons The antl-Platt Republicans
owe most of their disasters, some unfortunate, some
amusing, and all of them humiliating, to the fact
that they are, generally speaking, strangers to the
science of politica and believers In advantages to be
acquired by ethical rather than by practical meas?
ures Hut for the courageous flght which has been
kept up by the State Club, whrre the flame of hos?
tility to the leader from Tloga never lacks fuel in
plenty It Is probable that the antl-I'latt Republi?
cans In town would have gone to pieces six months
ago, instead of being able to contest four Con?
gressional districts with the regulars."
PLANS OP iKNATOR HILL.
Senator David B. Hill returned to the city last
evening from Albany on his way back to Washing?
ton, and saw a number of his Democratic friend? at
the Hotel Normandie Mr. Hill still adheres to hi?
plan for a lat-s State Convention this year, and
thinks that the latter end of June Is sufficiently early.
The advantages to be gained from knowing exactly
what the Republican National programme Is, Mr.
Mill believe?, outweigh all the argument? of Cantor
and a section of Tammany Hall, who want to begin
an eggt I salve campaign at once, ?tuning In without
delay to make sure of the coSoperatlon of the Raines
bill sufferers. As Mr. Hill contro;? thirty-four or
thlrty-Sve Of the fifty Democratic members of th??
State" Committee, he feels reasonably confident that
hi* plan of awaiting developments will be adopte 1
when that body comes together.

materially from that of the whit? voter? In the

But that was not all. It was belleved-end the
belief was based on experience In many previous
contest?-that the vote? of the colored voter? would
not be counted a? they were east In the three
"black" countie?, and the colored voter? were
therefore advised by their leader? not to register or
vote at the election In November, 18W, and the
testimony clearly shows that they very generally
conformed to that advice, in l.owndea County,
with a total colored voting population of about five
thousand and a white voting population of about
out? thousuml, the total vote returned for Ooodwyn
was 1K>, und for Cobb 3,276, ?o that, unie?? the re?
turns were fraudulent, he must have received more
than twice as many colored votes as he did white

vota cast, and that all the white men of voting

almost Inconceivable degree the testimony ?how?

A brief synopsis of the ie?tlmony relating to I

give a fair und correct Idea of the manner In which
Oobh's ?majorities" were manufactured in that and
