jsai this to say in another newspaper about Mr.
3stier"s candidacy Thursday: "I Fhall be plad t<->

io al in my power to brinir It about."
j£-. Warren was then asked this question: "Will
rh« candidacy of Mr. Butler be accepted as a way
oat ef the difficulties that have embarrassed the
■jpgMfcaa organization in getting a candidate on
I the State ticket?"
"I don't know about that." said Mr. Warrer
•yon know w<» do not have all to say about that.
The leaders ">wr; the State will have a say."
Mayor Kr.ight ia reported as paying on the same
gab.ie't: "I am heartily in favor of the nomination
cf ,M- Butler. He is an able man and thoroughly
£rted. B^id*-;:. he is deserving of great honors
from the Republican party and the people."
Mr. Butler came here to Buffalo a poor man. and
ha? made his n_ewspaper one of the chief ones of
•Teetern New-iork. It is also one of the most
prosperous newspapers of the State, and Mr. Butler
ha? become a wealthy man and a prominent citizen
cf Buffalo. He was an elector-at-large on the R"
publican ticket in l>Xi. and presided at the nieetir.sr
of the electoral college in Albany in January. 15*>i-
He ie the presiding member of the McKinley mon
xaner.: commission and a memoer of the Buffalo
grade crossings commission. Lately he has been
exerting himself as a member of the union station
commission to persuade the railway companies that
erter Buffalo to have a union station.
Mr. Butler, if supported for the Republican nom
ination for L-i^uter.ar.t Governor by the Kty-three
delegates of Erie County to the Republican State
Convention, would be so supported on the ground
expresfiy of his beine a champion of canal ira
provement projects. Th*» Erie Canal, if improved,
-n-ould, in the opinion of the canal men of Buffalo.
enable people. greatly to increase tl»e State's pros
perity. "The Buffalo News," Mr. Butler's news
paper, upon Thursday said on tnis topic of canal
"The canal question has been involved in preju
dice, dealt with ccmiptly at times and largely
jsisancerstood for years in important sections of
the State. It is time that it ■was taken up patiently,
intel-'g-eritly. honestly and vigorously and carried
fin uard to a conclusion befitting its pressing im
portance. It ought to be done by the Republican
party, which has the ability and courage requisite
and has the position enabling it to act.
Tie time has come for the canal quepTion to go Into
polities. The sentiment of Erie County is in favor
of a declaration on the BBBjfeet in the Republican
6tat<? platform this year. The most important
«rnerr!on that the State of Xew-York has to decide
at present is what she will do with her canal."
TEE CAPTAIX AXSWERS DORLS.
BCHMTTTBERGER. HOME FROM EUROPE.
SATS CHARGES ARE LIES.
Brimful of anecdote and Infrraatlon. and over
flowtog with good humor. Captain Max F. Schmitt
fcerger, cf the West Forty-seventh-st. station, re
t-arned yesterday from Europe on the steamship
Etraria. of the Cunard Line. Kis face was as
brown as a berry, and he sa:d he felt Just as good
es he looked. Mrs. Scfcntlttberger accompanied
him. , . . ♦ - - • *- -
"Bors," said the captain to a crowd of reporters
on the p!er. the Ber!in police are the sleepiest
looking let of cops I have ever seen. Of course,
their uniforms are pretty, and they always look
Fpick and span, but give them a crook like some
ire run jp against, and they wouldn't be in it.
One of our New- York burglars could go through
half a cozen houses in Berlin in broad daylight
with a Jimmy before the police there would know
anything aboat it. Their detectives are also verr
poor. Oh, they've got a lot to learn- The London
police are all right. They are a lot of gentlemen-
Before I went away I heard that all a London
"bobby" had to <5o to stop a row was to lift his
finger. WelL I g-jess we can do that. too.
"I was shown the sights of London by two news
paper men. We started cut In a cab at midnight
and ecded -ap at S o'clock in the mornlr.gr. Say. if
they had over here some of the things that I saw
In London they would bang every police captain
in sight. London is a hot town, and don't you
"Cologne has the best police foice over there.
The men are intelligent and wide awake. You see
a man to be a policeman In Cologne must have
served ba the army ar.c have become a petty of-
Seer before he can get on th« force. They're not
in it with us. though.
"I was ehowr. a clipping from a newspaper at
Quarantine, which stated that J. B. Doris had said
that as long as i was in command of the Twenty
p^cond Precinct fair primaries could not be held
in the district- Now. I want to make a statement
about that. Everybody knows how I feel toward
Tammany, and how they have treated me. The
mar. who maKes these statements against me I ar
rested in a poolroom. I shall go to-morrow to see
the Mayor cr Commissioner Partridge in regard to
it, and see what they have to Bay.
"I am not in politics, and never was. Doris's
•c-hole statement is a tissue of lies. The only thing
I have ever done In my precinct is to close up dis
orderly and gambling houses, and if that is a crime
then i" throw up my hands."
The captain was told of the many decorations
that had beon conferred on Americans who had
net Prince Herry on his visit here..
"I don't know whether I was mentioned in the
list." said the captain, "hut if any decoration has
been offered me I shall reruae It. No true Amer
ican should accept anything like that from a for
eign potentate, for. in my mind, it would put him
cader obiljrauoES to the giver. I see the Mayor
has been givc-n autograph photographs of the royal
family. Weil, I had those before I went away, so
that is where I get ahead of the Mayor.

PLANS TO IMPROVE HARBOR AND LESSEN
NUMBER OF WRECKS ON NEW
Atlantic City. N. J.. Aug. 2 (Special).— lf the plans
of the government are carried out as outlined by a
"Washington official. Atlantic rity will not only be
a harbor of refuge for stnrmbeaten craft but a port
of entry which will break the long stretch be
tween the Capes and New- York City. The need of
a harbor of refuge has been Impressed u^on the
government by the fact that last winter one vessel
was wrecked and two others driv^-n ashore within
easy reach of this city. After making his examina
tion, a government officer said that the cost of
making Atlantic City a harbor of refuge would b»
slight and that the benefit to the city in the in
crease in the taxable property would r>ay for the
cost inside of one year. The entrance to the har
bor is now located about a mile out to sea from
the end of the steel pier. It is marked by a bel!
buoy, and the channel into the harbor is a long
and dangerous one. It is prcposed by the govern
ment to bui:d a dike or jetty from the end of
Maine-aye. to the outer bar. This will cause the
tides to cut a channel through the bar which now
obstructs the harbor and will cause the shoals of
the inlet to pass away. Apart from the deepening
of the harbor the building of the dike will have the
effect of Increasing the value of the land along
the upper part of the board walk. With the dike
built straight out from Maine-aye.. there will be
added to the land not less than a thousand feet ot
Faiahle real estate. It will leave the H.-inz pier
so far Inland that where the outer end of it now
stands will be sold for building lots, and even then
the buyers will not be setting land directly on the
bt-ach front. In fact, if the dike is built. it will
make the owners of the riparian rights in the upper
part of the island independently rich.

ELIZABETH CITT COUNCIL OBJECT? TO
FREE DISTRIBUTION OF FRANCHISES
E'izabeth. N. J.. Aug. 2.— No more trolley fran
chises, it is said, will be granted by the city of
Elizabeth to applicants for such privileges unless
the mur.icipality gets ample compensation for the
same. This was indicated by the action last night
of the Ctty Council on the applications presented

the Essex Cross Country Railway Company. The
latter wants to build a road from L'r.ion-ave. here
thr^igh Tr.ion Township to Irvington. Millburn
and Orange, while the Hast Jersey wants to con
strict a road from Elizabeth to Rahway along St.
George and Rahway ayes.
<ition developed at once to the granting of
the franchises until the City Council knew what the
two ■ mpanies were willing to concede for the
prrrilegeE. *nd both applications were referred to
the '"ommittee on Streets and Parks, which will
open negotiations with the applicants and ascer
tain just what they are •willing to pay the city.
STOWED AWAY BIS WIFE
COOK OF A STEAMER GOT HER OS BOARD ES*
Baltimore. Aug. 2. — The Lord Line steamer Lord
Erne has arrived at this port from Barry., Wales.
by way of the Canary Islands, having on board a
woman stowaway, whose presence was not dis
covered by the captain until his ship had been
twenty-five days at oca. The •woman is the wife
of Alfred Ratzlaff. the ship's cook, who managed
to get her on board in male attire and to secrete
her In his room. After leaving Las Palmas and
the ship was on the high seas, bound for Baltimore,
Ratciiff went to the captain and confessed the
trick he had played. The astonished captain had
tbe woman brought on deck, and for the rest of the.
voyage she assisted in the ship's cnllnary work.
Mrs Ratcliff's condition is dtlicate, and it is said
That she will have to be sent to an hospital Rata
laff satisfied Immigrant Commissioner Weis that
he had. while a resident of California some years
ago, been naturalized as a citizen of the United
States, and his wife was released. The couple will
probably go to Newport News to live.

MOVEMENTS OF GREAT STAPLE COM
MODITIES IN THE INTERIOR AND
tBT TELERSAPH TO TH2 TKIBtXE. ]
Washington. Aug. 2.— The commercial movenn-iU3
of the great staple commodities produced in the in
terior of the country are necessarily subject to
something of a lull In the midsummer transition
from one crop year to another. There is. neverthe
less. in the -iata collected by the Treasury De
partment on internal commerce ud to the end of
June an opportunity for half year comparisons of
commercial movements, such as those of live stock,
grain, provisions and produce The five Western
live stock markets of Chicago, Kansas City,
Omaha. St. Louis and St. Joseph, taken as an in
dex of the trade generally, report total receipts of
meat producing stock, including cattle, hogs and
sheep, between January I and June 30. -.nclusiv-.
■f H.-mMt head. This was 709.253 heu.i less than
for the .-orresponding period of 1901 and 347,592
head lese than for 1900. Taking the Chicago market
as typical, the monthly average weight of cattle
has begun to recover from the lower level of 940
pounds per head In April. In May the average
weight rose to S.VT poun.ls. and in June to 964 pounds
per head. The average weight of hogs is likewise
recovering, but the supply is still nearly a million
short of the receipts for the first half of 1901.
A rough g&ugf Of the increase in the consuming
demand for meats is found In the trunk line ship
ments of provisions from Chicago and Chicago
points. Theac shipments go primarily eastward
from the centres of production in the interior, and
secondarily southward. For the first twenty-six
weeks of this year 652.217 tons of provisions entered
into this movement, compared with 572.515 tons last
year. The gain of 13 8 per cent over last year
amounted to an average of 3.054 tons a week more
than the demand for 1901. The five markets re
porting stocks of cut meats had. in round num
bers. 245.000.000 pounds of cut meats in stock at the
en.l of June. 1902. against 331.000.000 pounds for the
corresponding date in 1901 This is a decrease of
21.2 per cent. At Chicago the stocks were over
15.000.000 pounds below the level of a year ago. At
the four other packing centres reporting there was
a reduction of 51.000.00rt pounds, or 29.1 per cent, from
the basis of supply available at the end of June.
THE GREAT LAKE?.
Domestic freight receipts at 155 ports reporting
in June were 7.442.352 tons, compared with . 02"-..->4i
tons in June. 1901. Shipments from 224 ports ii
June this year amounted to 7.747.871 tons, against
7 201 »l tons m June. 1901. For the dm six months
of 1901 and UU the freight -ecelpts at lake ports
aggregated 11.556.972 and 18.13T>.97S tons, respectively.
Iron ore shipments to the end of June this year
were 8.127.271 tons, compared with 4.457.276 tons last
Shipping operations at New-York for the first
six months of this year give the total number of
vessels arriving as 5.915. of which 3.770 vessels were
engaged in tie coasting and 2.145 in the foreign
trade. At Philadelphia there were 2.U1 arrivals,
of which 1.823 were engaged in the coasting and 61S
in the foreign trade. At Baltimore the total ar
rivals for five months only were 1.015 vessels, of
which 934 were credited to coasting and 61 to for
eign trade. New-Or:eana reports 64a vessels arriving
this year to the end of June, of which 193 were
engaged In coastwise and 466 In foreign trade.
The three ports of New-York, Philadelphia and
Baltimore together sent out 5^.250 tons of coal by
water to coastwise destinations in May. and tor
the five month* ended with May 5,252.135 tons, as
reported by the leading coal earners and shippers
at the principal points of trade shipment. Coal
receipts at Boston in the six months ended with
June were 2.256.004 tons, compared with 2.311,703 tons
in 1901. Ordinarily these receipts are about equally
divided between anthracite and bituminous, but
thus far this year there has been a loss of 40 per
cent in anthracite tonnage, while bituminous re
ceipts increased 10 per cent over those uf the first
six months of 1901.
IN SOUTHERN TERRITORY.
Tbe first ten months of the cotton year in South
ern territory show receipts of lu.<J«L473 bales, of
which 7.485.013 arrived at seaboard pointa. l.'-"45.4&>
entered into overland shipment* and l.#B.itto were
taken by Southern mills. The cotton manufactur
ing Industry of the cotton States has. therefore,
reached a point where lt takes approximately 15
per cent of the American yield. The yearly con
sumption of the entire United States up to is.i-'.S
never reached the dimensions of in-- Southern con
sumption in the laat ten months. Iron shipment*
in Souihern territory in the last six monuii re
ported a gain of 19 per cent over those ol the same
length of time in 1901. Six producing districts
shipped 387.716 tons of pig and pipe iron, compared
with 830.647 tons for the corresponding period of
last year Teliow pine shipments, from South
western territory show that 744,036,967 feet were
marketed In the first six months of UOO, 332.421,041
feet in six months of li<ol. or a gain cf 26 per cent,
and 1.108.744,276 feet in the first half of I*2. being an
advance of 49 per cent over the output of l&u).
ON THE PACIFIC COAST.
Redwood, pine and fir arrivals at California coast
points for the last clx months amounted to 414,
926,854 feet, compared with 211,530.387 feet in the first
half of 1&01. Cargo lumber shipments from the
State of Washington for aix months, as reported
by leading mille, were 64.611.336 feet to foreign and
137.544.082 feet to domestic points. Orange and
lemon shipments from California have decreased
26.6 per cent from November 1 to July 1 of this
fruit year compared with the corresponding period
of last year, the average weekly shipment declin
ing from 640 to 470 cars. For June, the first month
of the deciduous fruit season In California, LMS
cars were Bent in liMil and CSO cars in June, W,
being a reduction of 41.6 per cent. Flour ship
ments from Columbia Klver points for the fiscal
year ended June 30 amounted to S23.MS barrels, or
which 637.793. or 77.4 per cent, went to foreign des
tinations and 186.055 to domestic ports. Tacoma
sent 515. 406 barrels abroad and Seattle 34r.8t>i bar
rels in approximately the same period.
COAL. COKE AND PETROLEUM.
June coal traffic in the East shows a contraction
of anthracite shipments and an expansion of bitu
minous and coke shipments. Pennsylvania road
shipments east of Plttsbur* and Erie amounted to
30.464 tons of anthracite this Tune, compared with
365.523 tons in June. 1901. and 342.415 tons in June,
1900. Bituminous shipments in June of this year
were 2.272.727 tons, compared with 1.509,040 tons in

In 1901 and 16,147.222 tons In V**i. The Chesapeake
and Ohio Railway carried 6 744.209 tons for the
eleven months ending with May, 1902, compared
with 5 014 110 tons in 1501. In the same period the
Southern Railway handled 3.139.499 tons of coal
originating on it/ line. Al Chicago anthracite re

After the fox had gone the donkey thus reasoned:
•I am very weak from want of nourishment.
Every move I make ia just so much additional loss
of strength. If I raise my voice to call the ele

my substance that way. It is the duty of the ele

So the donkey settled himself back, and eventu

TO THE GREAT AUDITORIUM
TO HEAR SINGING.
Ocean Grove. N. J.. Aug. 2 ("Special). —The go-as

in th" eentr * of the building were removed, and
the great space covered with handsome rugs and a
liberal supply of easy rocking chairs and tables,
upon which rested electric lamps. New aisles were

hundred members of the Festival rhorus acted as a
reception committee and made everybody feel at
home. At intervals the chorus sang and tue orches

permitted at all times.
The thousands of children summering in the
Grove will take a prominent part in the Audito

flowers. At the morning service the children will
be seated in the centre of the Auditorium. The
Rev Dr. J. O. Wilson, of New- York, pastor of St.
Andrew's Methodist Episcopal Church, will preach
a twenty minute sermon to the tots, and there will
be special selections by the Festival Chorus, to
gether with responsive readings. At the close of
the meeting each child will receive a souvenir
heart medal, with a new 1902 cent embedded therein.
The evenins service will be entirely musical. The
Children's Festival Chorua of one thousand voices
will be seated in the choir loft and will sine; "Naza
reth. "The Palms." "O Holy Night.' "Hark, the
Herald Angels Sing" and "The Lost Chord. ' The
Festival Chorus will be seated in the rear gallery,
and one hundred young women, dressed in Gre

HOW THEY BUILT THEIR CHURCH-AN

n private houses. But their numbers grew, and
they wished to hold a place In the public scheme
of affairs. So the offer for the old. abandoned
The consternation caused by this bold offer can
scarcely be imagined.
The whole village looked askance at such foolish
members of the community, and maintained with
great energy that it would be a disgrace to their
church if the noisy Methodists got possession a
the building. So the first offer from another party
that came their way was accepted. The bareain
was closed, and the purchaser began to consider
what to do with his new possession. He knew it
would be of no use to him where it stood, and at
once began the business of moving H to a aaore
desirable location. He had a task before him. The
church had been built to stay where it was put.
Timbers eighteen inches in thickness, walls and
ceilings of solid timber a foot thick, crossbeams by
the hundred, window casings deep as a prison
the whole thing as solid and as heavy as the
veritable house built upon a pock. But the busi
ness of moving It to another site was begun. A
little at first, a few feet the first few days, a rod
the first .weak or two. another rod— and the job
was given up. The house surely could not be
moved where It had been planned to move It with
out enormous expense. The purchaser was hlghly
disgusted with his bargain. The old church had
become an offence to his eyes. It was at this time
that the Methodists found their opportunity. They
promised to take the building just as it was. The
original purchaser struck a bargain at once and
cleared out. The Methodists merely moved the
church Into a correct position and let It stand
where they had found lt— ln somebody's bean patch,
it has been said.
3o with their church after all. they now began
to hold their meetings on a larger scale: and their
songs mingled with the songs of the Presbyterians
during' the quiet hours of service upon a Sunday
All this happened back in the early *40s. The
Methodists remained in the building they had so
cleverly got hold of until about a dozen years ago,
when they buiit a larger and more modern house
of worship. After remaining Idle for some time the
building was purchased by Mr. Parrtsn. of this
place, and converted Into a gymnasium and read
ing room for the young men of Southampton.
The guardian of the public books in this place- is
a man who knew and h«lped the abolitionists dur
ing the years when the anti-slavery agitation was
at a white heat. If the old man to-day happens
to become intensely interested in some subject the
nr« of bygone days returns, bis eyes flash, his fists
clench, and he denounces or praises, as the case
may be, in no uncertain or senile tones He is a
direct descendant of a family which came here In
164.) to help found Southampton, which fought and
di-ed for principles, and which could find no relief
or Justification In compromise of any sort. To see
the old librarian pottering away among the flower*
and bushes of the library lawn upon a drowsy
August morning there may be little indication of
tne smouldering passions of his breast or outward
traces of his many good fights of long aga But

diplomat and the persistency of an enthusiast, the
old gentleman will lead one to the contemplation
of American history in general, and from that to>
a thorough investigation ot the ante-bellum phase
of it In particular. Th> is little use of -.aving
any set ideas on the subject yourself for suca a.
storm of facts, arguments, proofs, rebuttals and
indisputable matters of history are now poured
down upon the listener's bead that there is little
chance of answering his r:ip:.i rire Of auestions with
a simple amrmative or negative
After awhile the audience of one is quite for
gotten; the fight is against the rascals of liie fifties
who tried to ruin th- country for the sake or" main
taining slavery, against all the foes of abolition,
against this neighbor or that neighbor, who sneered;
at or openly opposed the Abolition party. With
quickened memory he delivers hla great harangue,
he sways before his listener, he gestures, crouches
in his excitement, calls ro witness the stars in
heaven and the waten under the heavens against
the awfulness o/ the crime of slavery and againsc
the putting off of the day of jurtgmec:. T'-.e great
swelling words of the wonderful orators of the
time are hurled at the nonplussed audience witn
vehemence, and rolling sentences that have mais
history are cited again and again. It is really %
very exhausting hour to both speaker and auditor.
But finally the harangue nears its end. the perora
tion is given with a flourish, the arguments nave
al! been presented, a good fight has been put up,
the crime of the system exposed, and "Why.
I'm afraid I've tired you.' says the old gentleman,
as h" looks at the clock, pul's his clothes on
straight again and wonders what makes nia friend
so quiet. Both are the least bit wearied. But it
isn t every day that a thoroughbred Abolitionist
is met with, so that the conversation is continued,
a little longer, to the mutual satisfaction of thosa
The subject, by a series of subtle remarks on th»
part of Mr. Deacon, is now brought to another
very interesting topic — namely, that of prohibition.
It was not enough to have fought and won in th«
slavery question. As a gladiator upon vanquishlmf
one hard opponent long for another, so Mr.
Deacon having overcome a great adversary pantj
in eagerness for one even greater. 3o when th«
temperance question began to grow in inter
and power he cast behind him all affiliations h«
may have had with the other parties and put In
his lot with the Prohibitionists. His methods of
assault and conquest in this new warfare ar»
similar to those concerning slavery. Instead of
the slave holders he now has the Democratic and
Republican parties to throw invectives at. especi
ally the latter. as being, in his opinion, the '"ruin
party." When he has before him a yuonK fellow
who" has as yet never voted. h!s arguments against
these two parties and for his own grow multitudi
