•A POPULAR ABLEGATE.
ARCHBISHOP MARTTN"ETXI A MAN* OF
RARE CHARM AND TACT.
Washington. June 2 (Special).— Archbishop
Martinelli is still in the West, whither he went
<-.ar'y in May with his secretary of legation.
Dr. Rooker. to give the pallium to the new
Archbishop of Oregon, Alexander Christy, who
begged to receive It from the Ablegate's own
hands- So does the popularity of this genial
prelate extend from ocean to ocean, and yet he
lives at the Papal Legation here a moat re
tired life, the life of a monastic, effacing 1 him
self whenever possible. But on the rare oc
casions when he does come in contact with peo

THE MONSIGNOR'S GENEROSITY.
His good nature was shown about a year agr>
by an Incident so trivial It escaped general no
tice. The daughter of one of his servants was
about to be married, and nothing would do the
bride-elect but that the Archbishop should tie
the nuptial knot. The father, in awe of his
patron's hijrh office, feared to put the request.
but the daughter, with the buoyancy of youth
and iri expert'; nee, boldly If ishlngiy asked the
Pope's Locate to perform the ceremony. Her
request was cheerfully acceded to, but involved
more than anj* or.c supposed, since the Mon
eitrr.^r had no license from the local authorities,
which ia necessary in the District, to celebrate
the marriage ceremony. He was not deterred,
however, from carrying out his promise and
■went to the trouble of securing 1 a license to
ir.arry the daughter of one of his employes to the
mar. of her choice.
Morsignor llartinelll was educated at Rome
under Cardinal Bepiacci, of the Angelica, being
ordained as a priest March 4. -".. He is a
member of the Order of St. Augustine, to which
his brother. Cardinal Martinelli, who donned
the habit In 1863. also belonged. Shortly be
fore hi? ordination, the ilonsignor lived for some
years in the Augustine community in Ireland,
■where he became familiar with the English lan
guage 3-s it is spoken by our Irish cousins, and
his accent still suggests a slight brogue.
In 1889 Archbishop Martinelli was elected to
th*=- pcFt of Prior General of his order, and in
1895 was ronnrmed in this office for a term of
twelve years. It is doubtful If any one among
the Augnstines is more popular or more widely
loved, and none surely have a more potent In-
The Archbishop has taken a determined stand
r'-jrar'iing politics. He will have nothing what
ever to do with them. "I shall regard m • duty
to the Church and to the American people as
Christians paramount to everything else. The
Church will have nothing to do with politics "
said the Apostolic Delegate shortly after his
arrival in this country, a determination to which
be has strictly adhered, although the tempta
tion, to one who could exert m great an influ

a helping hand wh-re his sympathies are en
listed must be great.

CARE OF PUBLIC ARCHIVE.
AN" EFFORT TO PRESERVE THEM AND
MAKE THEM AVAILABLE FOR USE.
Washington. June 2 (Special).— lt is to be hoped
that Congress will find time to pass, t-efore the
present session ends, the Stokes bill. Just reported
from the House Committee on the Library, which
alms to preserve and make accessible for use and
study the negiected archives of the United States
and of many of the States and Territories. For
several years efforts have been made to Induce
Congress to take Borne steps to collect, edit, pub
lish or otherwise perpetuate- the public records— of
vast historical Interest and value — now held m
State, National or private custody. In ISST a com
mission, composed of the Secretary of State, the
Librarian of Congress and the- Secretary of the
Smithsonian Institution, and their successors in
office, was appointed and directed to report to Con
gress the character of the historical and other
manuscripts belonging to the National Government
and the method and policy to be pursued in edit
ing and publishing the same, or any of them. It
does not appear, however, that this commission
ever met. and the report contemplated by Con
gress was, in consequence, never submitted.
In 1594 the military records in the various execu
tive departments relating to the field of operations
during the Revolutionary War and the "War of
189 -were ordered to be transferred, to the. custody
of the Secretary of War. and the Indexing- of these
Invaluable papers has since been, successfully car
ried through. By the nm» act the Secretary of
State was directed to cause the Revolutionary
archives in his department to be. examined and to
report to Congress what portions of them were
worthy of publication., the number of printed, vol
umes they would make and. the estimated cost of
editing and publishing 1 the same. La response to
this direction the Secretary of Stats recommended
that the documents In question be printed In fifty
volumes, and estimated the. cost at $100,750.
Congress has, however, done nothing so far to
authorize this publication. Mr. Stokes' s bill pro
poses to have the American Historical Association—
a body Incorporated by Congress— investigate the
character and condition of the archives now in
possession of th» United States and of the various
States and Territories. For defraying- the neces
sary expenses Involved in such Investigation, the
bill appropriates the sum of $5,000. It is further
provided that no member of the American His
torical Association shall receive any compensation
for his services la connection with the said Investi
gation and report other than the reimbursement of
necessary expenses. Including clerical assistance
LOSSES of DOCUMENTS.
In reporting the bill Mr. McCleary, the chairman
of the Library Committee, gives some interesting
details of the character of the records which it is
sought to perpetuate and of their present neglected
and scattered condition, saying:
Tour committee feel that they do not state the
case too strongly in saying that at present no law
yer or historical student desiring to consult the
archives of the National Government can feel in
advance any assurance that the- papers to which
he wishes access are to of md in the place In
"Washington where they would naturally * sup
posed to be, or even that they ire actually in the
poosession of the United States at all.
There are not lacking illustrations of the Impair
ment, lo«s or dispersion of National records which.
have resulted from the lack of suitable provision,
for their arrangement and safekeeping- Until very
lately great quantities of manuscripts have been.
stored In various parts of the Canitol building
without order or system, exposed to the ravages of
mice, dirt and dampness, and subject to mutilation
or even theft. Fortunately for the- interest* of the
Government, these important papers have now
been commi ted to the custody of in* Library of
Congress, whore they will in the courpo of time be
cleaned, catalogued and suitably preserved; but
there appears to be good reason for thinking that
an examination of the papers will show that the
flies are now far from complete.
It is a matter of common observation a!so that
manuscripts of official documents, especially those
of the ypars prior to 1861; ar» constantly appearing
at auction sales in the. large, cities, and are- being
bought by libraries, historical societi-.--" :ir>.d indi
viduals, arid scattered in this way about the coun
try. The United States has itself bought, at a cost
of many thousands of dollars, various collections
of papers, many of which were of an oiHcial and
Such conditions are discreditable, and ought no
longer to exist. No country in the worM has. rela
tively, such extensive documentary material for
its history as is possessed by the United States. In
no country can the lawyer or the historian feel so
sure- that the data which he desires Is actually in.
existence, if only he can find where it is now kept.
The conditions which prevail in the several
States are. as a whole, even more unsatisfactory
than those ■which characterize th-+ archives of the
United States. With few exceptions the disad
vantages whi^h exist in the one n>M exist also in
the other. Hardly any ■••••. at present
complete flies, either in manus<rlpr or ii print, of
its own records. Some of the records appear never
to have been systematically preserved. Some have
been lost. Some are in the posst-.=t«'.^n of ••■h>-r
States or of the National Government. Large ;-or
tions still exist in manuscript only, while others,
the originals of which have disappeared, are, in
printed volumes now scarce and virtually impos
sible of replacement.
SOME NEW HAMPSHIRE RECORDS.
Many New-Hampshire documents noted as
lacking in the official edition of the State papers,
are In the Library of Congress, having: been ac
quired when the library of Peter Force was pur
chased In 1867.
Many early Maryland documents seem to have
disappeared In connection with the researches of
S--harf. the historian of the State. The notable
collections of P.-ti-r Force and Joseph Sparks ap
pear, however, to have been enricheil. in the same
way. Many of the Maryland papers ire now In the
Library of* Congress.
The vicissitudes which the archives of Virginia
have undergone illustrate the way in which State
archives disappear, afterward coming 1 to light in
another jurisdiction. Jefferson, appreciating their
value to the State and to the United Stales, col
lected all the early lejral and other documents that
he could find. These fornr-d the basis of the first
.i'r~ part of the Sfi-ond volume of Heningr's "Stat
•»- at Large." Wben Jefferson sold hi library to
Congress. In 1815. many of his manuscripts cam*
along- with the other books, but he retained some
of them, and when, in 1529. his second library was
sold at auction in Washington, these invaluable
manuscripts were also disposed of. By good for
tune they eventually found their way to the
Library of Con^res*. Amonc tnese. papers were
thf records of the Virginia Company, of London,
!«9-jC;4. and the minutes of th" proceedings of the
Virzinla Council from 1«22 to 1627.
Many of the early official records of North
Carolina, South Carolina and Gt-onria. are in th*
English Pub-lie Records Office. London. Those at
Georgia have not yet been transcribed or cal
The archives of Ohio are in a very, confused con
dition, with many gaps in the fiiea. due in part to
the burning of thft old State House In the early
part of the century.
A typical case of the loss of important records
through Ignorance and carelessness is found In
Nebraska. Some time since the Janitors at the
Capitol, in the course of their cleaning, found a
box of manuscripts, and. concluding that they were
of no value, burned th<'m. As n^nr Bfl can be made
out. tne er-tire records of rhe Constitutional Con
vention of 1^7") went up in smoke.
The Spanish records of the Southwest, while
largely collected at Santa Fe, are still. In many
cases, scattered among the towns of New Mexico
and Arizona, whlla many have passed into private
hands. The Importance of these papers will read
NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE/SUNDAY. TTSE 3. 1900.
ily occur to any one who remembers the millions
of dollars Involved In land v gTant suits before th»
United States courts.
Th© archives of California are scattered through
out the State, Important portions of them being In
the charge of local custodians.
MANY RECORDS SAVED.
Th« Commissioners' Court of Bexar County,
Tex., recently acquired a great mass of records,
many of them, In French and Spanish, and apgre
g-atlng between 3<y\otii) and 400,000 pages. These
papora, which are now In the custody of the- Uni
versity of Texas, are of gTeat importance for the
early history of the State and Its relations to
Louisiana while that region was under French con
trol, and later to the United States.
The public records In the possession of the State
of Louisiana are very drfecti% r e, tire having de
stroyed the State Capitol building at least once
since 1547. Many of the most Important printed
papers are now to be found In the State and How
ard libraries at New Orleans.
The records of Florida, Alabama, Mississippi.
Louisiana and Texas contain large quantities of
French and Spanish papers, few of which have yet
been translated, and most of which exist only in
In publishing State records, particularly those of
earlier date, while considerable sums of money
have been expended, the results have not been all
that could be desired. A cursory examination
shows that the work has been carried on under
the most diverse theories as to the way in which
legal and historical papers ought to be edited.
Some Important early records, for example, have
been published In summary or extract only, al
though it is obvious that no editor, however
learned, can forecast the future sufficiently to tell
what documents or parts of documents later in
vestigators will need to uh*. The records of North
Carolina, now in course of publication, and likely
to extend to nearly twenty volumes, are thus far
without either table of contents or index, and.
although a comprehensive Index to the series is
promised the volumes thus far pub : lshed are prac
tically useless until the Index volume shall appear.
Some editors have assumed to modernize the
older documents or to correct what they assumed
to be errors in the text, others have printed the
documents verbatim, even to the extent of repro
ducing the archaic topography. Some have equipped
their editions with valuable notes, thus greatly
facilitating their use: others have provided no
helps of any kind, but have left the reader to
work his way through the difficulties as best he
could. Records in languages other than English
have sometimes been reprinted in translation, un
accompanied by a reprint of the original by which
the accuracy of the translation could be tested. In
numerous cases reprints, otherwise of the utmost
usefulness, have been Issued without the seal of
official authentication, and consequently are not
free from question when introduced in court pro
The committee do not, of course, assume that the
United States can exercise any direct authority
over the custody or publication of State records,
nor do they feel that any wholesale publication of
State records by the United States would be ad
visable. The committee are confident, however,
that to give National sanction to such an under
taking as Is here proposed would be the surest
way to secure the co-operation of custodians and
archivists In every State, and that It would con
tribute powerfully to substitute order and system
for the confusion and lack of unity which now

A SFTTP THAT DEFIED SPAIN
THE ST. MART'S RECORD OP OVER HALF
Washington, June 2 (Special).— The old sailing
corvette St. Mary's, for the last quarter of a
century the training ship of New- York's public
school system, has just had a thorough overhauling
at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and is practically as
good as ever for her annual summer cruise with
the lads who have been fascinated by fictions
based on the delights of a seafaring career. Grad
uates of the old schoolship to-day command craft
on every ocean, are the autocrats beyond port
limits of every class of American vessels, the great
Pacific liners and Atlantic coasting steamers, the
fargoing fleet of big clipper schooners and the
finest yachts of salt and fresh water, and many
of them. too. are still enduring hardships before
the mast and trimming coal in the bunkers of
The St. Mary's was a famous war sloop of the
ante-bellum Navy, when steam power was rare.
before submarine cables flashed messages around
the globe, and In the days of Infrequent mails,
when National vessels were not heard from at
homo for a year at a time. She was built at the
Washington Navy Yard in 1543, and named for
one of the richest counties of Maryland. Her dis
placefnent of 1,025 tons was large for those day?.
but only equal to that of the Annapolis class of
smallest gunboats In the new steel Navy. Small
as she was. however, she once defied the strongest
fleet of Spain, and was instrumental in securing
the Independence of Chili. Then she had a battery
of smoothbores only, consisting of six 8-inch muz
zle loaders and sixteen 32-pounders.
A LONG CRUISE.
Her first duty was in the Mexican War, where
she assisted in the landing at Vera Cruz In 1547
and was afterward selected to bring home the tro
phies of victory. During the next ten years she
explored the Pacific, making the phenomenal record
of 420 consecutive days at sea on her last cruise.
In that ocean she protected American commerce
from Confederate privateers throughout the Civil
War and at one time saved thirty United States
merchant ships in the Chincha Islands from the
rebel cruiser Shenandoah.
In 1861, while under repairs at Mare Island, the
rudder which still steers the St. Mary's was mads
for her by the present Chief Constructor. Admiral
Philip Hichborn. then serving as a Journeyman,
shipwright at that navy yard. The entire work,
from the selection of the log to the hanging of the
finished rudder, was performed by the future Ad
The St. Mary's memorable experience with the
Spaniards in Chilian waters when she comprised
nearly ail the effective force of the United States
squadron in the South Pacific occurred during tha
latter part of the Civil War and a few months
after an attempt to blow her up In a Peruvian port
by torpedoes had been frustrated. Captain Col
vocoresses, a native of Greece, and the first of the
line of American naval officers of that name, was
in command of the ship. According to a chronicle
of the time:
He chanced to be on duty In Valparaiso when
that port was menaced by a powerful Spanish
squadron under the command of Admiral Plczon.
and was exceedingly active in his efforts to pro
tect the rights and property of American citizens.
For his success, as well as for a famous corre
spondence with the Spanish admiral, he will be
long rememberer" there. Somewhat Inexplicably he
sailed in the morning for a short cruise outside,
and anchored the St. Mary's directly In front of the
business portion of the city and between it and tha
ironclad ships of the Spaniard.
Pinzon saw the awkwardness of the situation.
and in a characteristically arrogant note informed
him that he had better move- his corvette, aa he
Intended to bombard the place, and would not be
answerable for any damages that might result.
This roused the ire of the Greek, and he hastened
to inform the Spanish admiral. In language that
was a model of expllcitneas and force, that the
St. Mary's was anchored to his perfect satisfaction,
and would remain where she was. and added
A MESSAGE THAT WAS EFFECTIVE.
"In th» event of a bombardment of the city, I
beg you, air. to have a care that none of your
shot touch the hull of the St.. Mary's. I am per
fectly aware of the weakness of my corveiEe in
comparison with the powerful squadron of Her
Most Catholic Majesty aov blockading the port,
but I beg, sir. to remind you that the flag that
floats at her peak represents three thousand guns
on the sea."
The correspondence was printed in the Span
ish papers, and. besides creating the greatest en
thusiasm for the plucky captain, rather opened the
