and t Ion. 1'rancU A. Walker and Mr, U rooks
Adams of llolon. There w ere present to meet
these tlllinKulshed Americans thn Itlght Hon.
Arthur J. Halfoiir, the Itlght Hon. Henry Chnp.
Iln. tho Itlght Hon. William Lldderdale, Mr.
tllhh. Mr. V. It. (Irenfcll. Mr. Moroton Frewrn,
Mr, Herman Schmidt, Pnif. Fonvell, Mr. Hcs
ell Inc. Mr. Murray (luthrlr, Mr. lleeton, Mr,
McNIrl of Manchenttr, and Mr. Hobertaoii,
After dinner, In proposing tha health nf the
guests. Sir William lloulds worth drew atten
tion to the Increasing urgency of the stiver
question, mid expressed tho hope that soma
means might be adopted by which tho two great
branches of the Anglo-Saxon race might at last
cottptrAte In settling this Issue. The great catas
trophe In the exchanges with alt Asia and South
America had Inflicted Infinite disaster upon the
trade of tho entire world; nnr was thero the
smallest Indication pointing to an adjustment of
these troubles, nor any promise that thaprra.
ent disastrous fall of prices had culminated.
"Wo appeal," said Sir William, "to tho great
American nation to stand In the vnn of the
movement for monetary reform and monetary
unity. We In Knglnud have been laggards; but
I point out to our visitors tho real and active
mo etnent of publlo opinion In this country dur
ing the past year as an earnest of our Intention
to get Into lino with tho bimetallic, movement
and tradition of tho Untied States."
(Icn. Francis Walker, In reply, declared his be
lief that tho United States would go every whit
as far to secure tho settlement of this Issue as
was (.onslsteut with national financial aiifoty.
"I admit." said tlen. Walker, "that white nt
ways a blmetalltit by conviction, yet any sup
port of silver and any assertion of the world
wide importance of stable exchanges has
aroused In the United States such excess! vo de
mands on thu part of n certain section nf our
community thut for somo years 1 had fell that
the part of prudenco was to sit still, but dur
ing the past t o ) ears the lucreoslnr danger, the
imminent danger, of the situation ho so deeply
Impressed tueihat I havo felt Impelled to do
everything In my power to cducuto publlo
opinion in tho Lasti'ru States to the crisis
which Is to-day nt last In full sight of nil
men. 1 regard the safe settlement of this ques
tion as far moro than any mero problem uf
finance. I belicvo that It Involves the very
progress of rl lllzation In tho Western nation.''
Senator Wolcott said: "I fcl tlutt much
more real interest attaches to the atti
tude of Mr. Whitney and Oen. Walker
nt the present time than to the attitude and ef
forts of thoso who think with me that the
United States with open mints can single
handed act as the world's money changer and
can maintain the parity of the metals. And
seeing that fr three years to come no effective
silver legllatlon can bo secured at Washington,
such legiflatlon during President Cleveland's
term being impossible, the blmetalllu contest
has to-day shifted Itself from Washington to
Westminster. Hut I am glad to endorse Uen.
Walker's assertion to-night that ninety per
cent, of the people of tha United States are
earnest and convinced bimetallism. The ques
tion then for us In the United States Is not
one of principles, but of methods only how
best we can encourago action on the part of
Great Ilrltaln; and this being the position we
think, somo of us. that perhaps the offer to your
colonies and India of lower tariffs as contrasted
with prohibitive tarltTs may attract your rolo
tilil premiers to a little friendly but determined
girding at Downing street. 1 notloe, however,
that. Just as a distinguished American humorist
wan prepared to demoostrato bis patriotism by
sending his wife's relatives to tho lleld of battle,
so, also, whether In Australia or at the Cape,
England at the present time contemplates the
sufferings of her relatives with considerable
equanimity." In concluding u speech that was
followed with very close attention Senator Wol
cott said that Just as the promise of improve
ment to come immediately after the repeal of
the Sherman net hod been delusive, so also the
improvement to follow after tariff reform might
be not leas visionary, and that many who had
voted for re;eal lees than a year since were
likely at the coming elections to accept the alter
native of free coinage.
Mr. Whitney eald that he had been greatly
Interested In intending tho dinner, but that he
could scarcely be expected to be more than a
Tery Interested auditor.seelng that this occasion
was his first Introduction to blmetalllo society.
As a firm believer, however. In the principle of
bimetallism, lie hoped that something might be
dona to bring Ureat Ilrltaln mid the United
Statos to a lasting agreement upon a subject of
thl importance. " We are." said Mr. Whitney,
"at the present moment looking at the subject
from different standpoints. Our people In the
United States are believer In the policy
and tho practicability of the double
standard; we havo Inherited this belief and we
have prospered under suoh a system or cur
rency. Vou will find that It bos been at all times
Included In tho platforms of both political par
tics, and It Is entirely safo to say tbat ninety per
cent, of our people are In close agreement with
blmetalllsts. Hut we have differed during re
cent years as to motbods; we are divided upon
the question of the wisdom and practicability nf
undertaking froo coinage single-handed. We
were even divided as to the policy of such make
shifts as bland awts and Sherman acta; but we
all believe In anil shall all work together for the
establishment of bimetallism by international
agreement. We, therefore, stand rtsdy at any
tune to support free coinage by agreement with
Great Srltaln ar.d the Continental powers, but
In Great Ilrltaln you are not agreed even a to
the policy of an International settlement of the
qunstlon. and the battleground therefore ap
pears to mo to be on this side to-day. To an ob
server It does however appear that a change of
national sentiment is rapidly developing on this
eld the water. I have been greatly Interested
to learn from ray neighbor during dinner (Mr.
Arthur Ilalfour) how complete Is the una
nimity on the part of your profeasore in this
country as to the theory' of bimetallism.
These theories we are all concerned to bring
within the domain of constructive politics, and
the sooner the lietter; but 1 ventnro to appeal
to Senator Wolcott and our friends In the far
West to give ns the opportunity now to face the
other way In our ccntcst over this Issue, so that.
Instead of lighting our own neopio in tho West,
we may unlto vvitu them and with these leaders
of public opinion here who aro rhampionlug bi
metallism. Under such conditions much can be
accomplished, and accomplished very speedily,
to settle this question upon safe lines.
After a few remarks from Mr. llnxiks Adams,
who described the depression In Italy, caused by
the fall of all prices of produce, as amounting to
a social revolution, which revolution, he de
clared, was widening and threatening toengulf
agriculture everywhere on tho Continent, Jir.
Whitney called upon Mr. Chaplin for 1.1s views
as to what might be expected from Kngland.
Mr. Chaplin safd that while he had no Idea of
being railed upon tneak. set he might be per
mitted to express his gratitude to Sir William
Houldstvorth for the very Interesting meeting
ii nt;ut!ng hlcli was rot unlikely. In his opin
ion, to lead to results of the first Importance. It
hail been to Mm a matter of deep Interest to
met their distinguished visitors from America,
and in refertnee to their speeches he would ven
ture to offer In reply one or two observations.
-iometblnghad been said as to our deficiency
In Kngland In adequate orgaulratlnn for the
purposenf pressing lnme u great burning ques
tion Ilk cirrriicy reform, a deficiency which
cnntrated unfavorably, Mr. U hltney thought,
with what had lawn achieved In America. And
the critlclam ti no doubt deserved; hut there
wrro dlrflcultles In Kngland which did not
exist u the other side of the Atlantic, and
of which our American friends might
not be aware, although to tome extent
Mr. Whitney had himself supplied the
answer. "We.ln America," sold Mr. Whltnej.
"have inherited bimetallism, and the great mass
of our people favor an international arrange,
ment." Nuw, no doubt, such Is the position in
the United Mutes, but In Kngland It Is mono
metallism that w e hav e inheriitd, and there has
been hitherto both apathy and Ignorance gener.
all uu thequiatloiiof what bimetallism really
Is. It Is a sstcm width few of our people
hitherto have understood In detail, although
the question had undoubtedly rlined for solu
tion during the last two or three years.
I'ndor such conditions, would it not he asking
Kngland to take two step to their one tu expect
her to Join unreservedly, and at once, with the
I'nlti-d States in an International blmetalllo
agreement 1 being hlmxelf a convlncrd hi.
uetalliat. he vet haw considerable dltnrultlra iu
thrwn) of this couutn coming to such an un
derstanding at the present moment. We hail

which did not exUt iu the rose of America.
V'Irst we had, or at least we hate hitherto
luul thaatlivoopposttlouuf the It) of Loudon,
and the iMlui no and power of the city uu
nutation of this nature could not U uv erratrd.
It w as nut too much to a) that probably itu
Mmlster in Kngland. however po erf ul, would
venture tu oppu the clt) on an issue of such
liaramount Importance. And while there has.
no doubt, been a revulsion uf feeling in man)
quarter of the city, )et even to-day It was
premature to regard city aentlment as other
than opposed to change, although iuthepres
eiueof Mr. Lldderdale he spoke as tu city
seiitlmtnt with becoming diffidence and
reserve. And. la the second phu. we
hail tu fiicountir the determined opuosiuoit
nf thoTrraaury, the civil service, and thv fixed
incoiae classes. And finally It uut be re mem
bered that with the exception of the pre In
Lanisshlre and the North of Kngland and one
admlruble paper, the fWtcfiil Aus, In l-oiidon.
the w boh- of the press was almost ur.anlinously
opiawed to us. The hoetilit) of the metropolitan
pre was perhaps tho greato difficult)
uf all. and for this reason utno people

Mid or written on the. side of reform. He
thought twrliApa. he had said enough to show
that In England they were confronted with
difficulties greater than wo thecaso In Amerii a
In pressing forward this question tu any really
complete and Immediate solution.
There was, however, one suggestion not
unfitting for him to refer to M a possible
solution a suggestion which was free from
many of thoso difficulties and which might be
deserving of consideration. Mr. Whltnev had
reminded them of the Importance of this question
to the vast Interests of our empire as a whole.
1 hat was true, hut our friends must also bear In
mind. In connection with this, that we were a
great power not only In tho West, bnt also In the
Last. How would It be If as regards the eastern
half of the empire, we signified to the United
States our readiness to assist on International
agreement by opening the Indian mints to the
free, and unlimited rolnago nf sliver, and thus
restore In that portion of the llrltlih Kmplre the
slnglo silver standard ? The great value of sliver
monometallism In a country of nearly .100,000..
000 of inhabitants, to steady the relative values
In Lttrnpe and America of gold and silver, could
hardly be overrated. And furtliertban this, there
was no reason. In his opinion, why the recom
mendations made by Lord Herschell and
accepted by all his colleagues on the (iold and
Silver Commission, should not be promptly
adopted by any Kncllsh Government, In view
of tho disasters which hail since overtaken the
world of trade. Lord Herschell, who Is Lord
Chancellor In the present Administration, not
only proposed that foreign governments should
tie asked whether they would open their mints
for a term of ears to an Increased coinage of
silver, on the undertaking that the Indian mints
should remain open to free coinage, but ha
also recomtnendnd that part of the bullion
In the Issue department of the Hank of
Kngland should be held In silver, and ho
further suggested tha Issueof small notes for ten
shillings and a pound, based on coined silver, a
suggestion which. If acquiesced In, would have
greatly reduced the strain upon our gold. All of
those proposals would tend In the same direc
tion, and coupled with the reopening of the
mints In India, they could not fan to exercise a
considerable effect In correcting the present rise
In thevalue of gold, in steadying the exchanges,
and In promoting the extended use of silver as a
As to the city, there were those present more
competent to speak than himself. Possibly the
progress made in the city was greater than he
supposed; and In Lancashire and other great In
dustrlal centres there was be)ond all question a
wide and growing, and even a clamorous de
mand that this question should bo finally set
tled. The agricultural party also were becom
ing thoroughly aroused tu Its Importance, and
the undoubted progress which had been already
mado was full of hope and encouragement for
Mr. Grcnfetlsaldt "There Is present on this
K'caslon Mr. Lldderdale. who a Governor of the
bank of Kngland steered the city through prob
ably the gravest crisis In her entire history. We
should all ho greatly Interested to know what
are Mr. Lldderdale's vlows, as to the alleged
Immobility of publta sontlment In the city."
Heplylng to Mr. Grcnfull, Mr. Lldderdale said
that undoubtedly tho cause of blmetAllUm hod
of Into mode marked progress In the city, and
that 11 was exciting a greatly increased amount
of Interest and discussion, lie fully agreed,
however, with Mr. Chaplin that there waa
as yet no evldcnco of such an advance of nplntou
In its favor as would Justify them In holding
out the hope of an early demand for a change In
tho English inouctarr standard. Iln such a
complex subject publlo opinion could not lie ex
pected to alter rapidly, unless under the pres
sure of adverse circumstances compelling gen
eral attention. It must also be borno In mind
that this country had been monometallic for
seventy-five years, and that It hail on the whole
prospered under tho gold standard, thanks to
the burden nf silver having been borne by other
countries: there was therefore some excuso fur
our unwillingness to adopt a change. He was a
blmetalllst by conviction, and not a very recent
convert cither; he had become convinced by
lHHllthatlf tho demonetization of silver pro
ceeded much further a change In tho English
standard would be found necessary In order to
prevent grave disasters. This condition had
been fulfilled, and we were now suffering se
verely from the consequence. It was strange
that England, which had advanced such
Immense amounts of capital to foreign coun
tries and to her own colonies, all dependent
largely en the value of their products for
the means whereby they could pay their debts,
should still so persistently and. apparently, so
blindly, havo supported a financial policy cal
culated to render It difficult for her debtors to
keep faith. The experiment of closing the In
dian Mint seemed to him to have boon ordered
with very little consideration as to its probable
effect on the Interests of England outside India.
by that measure the safety of Drltlsh capital
had been Jeoparded not only In silver, but In
gold standard countries, and thus far without
any gain on balance to India herself.
A good deal had been said lately on the
monometallic side, against tho Idea that there
w as any Insufficiency In the supply if gold for
the needs of trado and finance, and the largo
amounts accumulated In the great European
banks were pointed to In proof of the ar
gument, but the great bulk of these accumula
tions were not freely open to meet International
wants. Austria had been and was still acllrely
engaged In Increasing her store of gold, and
neither from France. Germany, nor Husslaconld
gold be drawn at will brother countries. The
United States and the English were the only
large marketa which were really open, and on
these marketa the brunt of any Increased de
mand mTj.t fall. At present tho United States
were more likely to draw upon this side than
to port with much more gold. The Hank of
England, It was true, held an unprecedentedly
large stock, but in view of what he hail Just
etated and of the magnitude of her commercial
and financial relations, the excess was no great
affair, and a ytry moderate general rise In
values, or the issue of a large loan by
the United States, would probably make
It disappear very quickly. An illustration
of such a disappearance of an extra slock
of gold from the bank waa afforded by its
position during the last fow mouths nf 1H7U,
when there occurred a rise in the pricn of com
modities. That rise of prices was followed by
several years of declining values. He mutt In
fairness admit that there had been a
considerable Increase In tbo annual production
of gold, and that present Indications favored Its
continuance for some time; but against this In
crease must be set the stoppage of those ad
ditions tu the world's currency formerly mode
by silver, and thn probability also of a future In
crease of demand.
Looking then at the position he had so briefly
sketched out, Mr. Lldderdale thought there waa
crave reason to fear that trade and commerce
had still to sutTer seriously from tho conse
quences of the demonetization of silver, and he
therefore welcomed with the greatest pleasure
the cooperation In a common cause, of their
friends from America, to whose exertions they
were already so much Indebted.

powder on board was begun. Just bcfnrethlng
were ready for the powder the seamen on the
steamer, who are Indulged until tho last lno
momrnt, were required to Is y nalde their pipes, so
that when the first case of powder was lifted
over tho rail there was not so much ns a spark
anywhere on the steamer. Despite the weight
of the cases they were taken on I ward by the
men, A hoisting machine would require an en-
fine, and an enirliio a fire, all of which would
lave been In violation of the law.
When tho Lvdlan Monarch left London she
was laden to her capacity, cxrept on tho
starboard sldo of thn lower deck aft. In this
part of tho steamer a sort of wooden rage, not
unlike a huge chicken ronp, had been built for
the reception of tho powder. It was made of
heavy boards, nailed together with copper nails,
and was Just beside the main hatchway. The
canes of powder were handed carefully from
man tu man until they reached this store room,
where they were packtd for tho voyage by
First Officer William Sanders and Second
Officer Hugh Dlbb. As sooti a thn last
case was packed away and the entrance
to the msgaxlne had been bolted with heavy
strips of wood, the main and every other
hatchway were battened down, so that It
would be Impossible for any one tu got near the
powder. Notonco during tho trip were any of
the hatches opened, and severe punishment
would have been Inflicted upon any man caught
lighting a match or smoking near tno spot where
the powder had been stored. Allot these precau
tions were kept updurlng tho trlp.and on Sunday,
when the Lydlan Monarch drooped anchor In
Gravrscnd Hay, the tiowder was inexactly the
same condition as wheu It was placed on board
at dravesend, England.
Early yesterday morning preparations were
made to remove the podwer from the steamer to
lighters. Before a hatch was opened every fire
on board was put out. The lighters then came
alongside, ana a delicately as they would have
handled cases of fine china the seamen of the
Lydlan Monarch removed the hatches, opened
up the magazine, and began passing out tho
powder. About fifteen men stood In line, two
feet apart, and passed the cases along until they
reached the lighter, where they wero laid In
piles upon the decks. After all of the powder
hod been removed the Lydlan Monarch got up
Jteam again and proceeded tu tier aocg in brook
yn, where she discharged the rest of her cargo.
To a Sc reporter Second Officer Dlbb said :
"Of course. It's necessary t" use every precau
tion when you have so much powder on board
ship, and while to n landsman It may seem that
we are running groat rltk we aro In reality
in no danger, for 1 can Imagine no way in which
the powder could be exploded unless the ship
caught afire. The men us well as the officers
appreciate the fact that tho utmost care mutt
be exercised. It wonld be absolutely Impossible
for a man to reach the powder, as there are
hundreds of. other cases packed all around It,
and the hatches are battened down and watched
night and day."

of committing. In two affidavit, sworn to to

clare that Miller confessed to them on more
than one occasion that he had killed an old
negro on the Illver street bridge, at Hlverslde,
one night In a drunken brawl, by thrusting his
knife Into him thirteen times. One of the wit
nesses, Abraham Bertram, beslds acknowledg
ing that Miller had told him this story, says:
' I was walking with August Miller, thn man
under arrest for tho murder of Max Ouhlen
schlacger, one evening about two weeks ago, on

told me the stor), the conversation turned upon
tho recent trlnlof the Anarthlat Doebbelrr and

"Of tourse Ido. I havadlstlnei knowledge of

and that would be nnneceavary, and we sep

davits have been made, went to New Vnrk this
morning in searth of the man Koch, who Is
mentioned in Otto Van Hagen's ante-mortem
statement a having been Ids companion on the

Is believed that Kocb, who Is a ribbon weaver In

WAs,nt.vaTosj, Aug. 57. The proposed forma
tion of a new organization to be railed the
Marine Artillery, and to be composed both of
the Marine Corps and of the present heavy bat
teries of the army artillery, seems to have a
double purpose. One Is to get rid of the Marine
Corp from service on cruising vessels by trans
ferring It to adequate shore duties; the other, to
Increase the share of the navy In the coast de
fence system. For.the project proposes that the
new organization, commanded by n Brigadier
General, shall bo under the charge of the Navy
Department- The army would retain the light
batteries, and also, presumably, enough of Its
present artillery force for the frontier aud other
forts not on the seaboard or navigable water
Bo far a the endeavor to exclude the Marine
Corps Is concerned, that Is a matter which
chiefly concerns the navy Itself. The object Is
to have tho bluejackets furnish their own ship's
guard, under their petty officer, and, of course,
tho commissioned officers, while the exclusion
of the marine would allow each vessel to carry
an equivalent additional number of seamen
available foi the general dntte of the vessel.
On tho other hand, some naval officer want a
marine guard aboard the vessels, and Secre
tary Herbert haa plainly declared himself
against any restriction In tho present sphere of
duly of the corps. But perhaps It Is hoped by
the advocates of the new coast defence plan
that. If afar more Important carter than that
of watchmen at thn station I opened to the
marines, there will be less objection to putting
them exclusively on shorn duty, especially as
the function of the Navy Department would
also thereby be greatly increased In Importance.
leaving that matter aside, the question of the
relative parts to be played by the army and the
navy In seaboard defenco Is Itself one of much
Interest. Tho new proposition I plainly bused
on the German mid French systems. Th
French have a marine Infantry and artillery,
and the latter tt a corps for land service. Under
the general system the fort in Franco that face
tho sea aro manned by the marine artillery,
while the forts not ou the sea front are manned
by the army. The antlre force of marines I or
ganized a an army corps, with four brigades of
Infantry of two regiment each, with head
quarter respectively at Cherbourg, Brest,
Itochcfort. and Toulon. At Iorlent are the
headquarter of the marine artillery, and seven
batteries are there stationed under the Colonel
cnmmnndlng. But there arethlrty-slx batteries
In all, so that five are at Cherbourg, five at
Toulon, three at Brest, two at Hochefort. and
the remainder In the colonies. The naval pre
fects of tho five arrondlsscment In which these
Ure posts Just mentioned are situated havo
charge of their respective coast lines and d6
f dices. Under them naval commander have
charge of sections, and control torpedo boats,
submarine mines, and signalling, with troops
that the War Department may lend for coast
defence, except that when more than three arm
battalions are needed, the army officer command
ing in the section must take charge of the op
erations on land.
Under Napoleon, coast dofence Is said to have
been under the charge, of a naval officer, but
later -vo given to the War Office, while still
more recently the navy Is ucqntrlng a larger
share In It. The navy Is well represented on the
Committee of Defence, to which tho plans of
fort must be submitted. Still, to avoid all
question, a few years ago a decree recognized
the War Department as charged with the coast
defence proper, and placed under It orders all
the maritime prefects as to matters affecting
the land forces of their districts. The naval
commandants of sections receive authority from
the War Minister over matters within hi con
trol, and from the Minister of Marine over those
within bis Jurisdiction.
If we turn to Germany we find the most strik
ing example of Intrusting coast defence to the
navy. About seventeen ) ears rtgo a naval artil
lery was organized for this express purpose, and
over ten) ears ago an Imperial edict declared
the will of the Emperor that "hereafter th
navy la to be Intrusted not only with the defence
of the two great dockyards, but also with the
maritime defenco of Prussian fortresses uu the
coast and at seaport. It Is considered that for a
thorough defence the army and the navy should
work together, according to clearly laid down
rules, and to the navy should be given supremo
control over all maritime operations." Tho Ma
trosenArtlllerle.or bailor Artillery, has oncdlvl
tlon each at frledrlchsort. Wllhclinshaven,
and Iehe.of four, three, and four companies
respectively. The corps Is commanded by a
Hear Admiral, and each division by a Com
mander. The marine Infantry Is commanded
by a Colonel, since Its officers, liko ours, have
army titles, and It is divided between Kiel and
These two countries probably form the most
conspicuous examples of naval control of coast
defences that of Germany being particularly
noticeable. But perhaps a third example may Its
furnished In thecase of Italy, which, however,
has a rather Invidious distinction In the fact that
Its seaboard forts occupying elevated positions I
are garrisoned by the army, while batteries on
tho shore covering submsrlne mines and ob
structions are manned by the navy, which ho
charge also of all the works at Taranto and Mad
dalena. On the other hand. England's system
Is like ours, the array having charge not only of
all the coast forte, but also of the submarine
mines, which, being oiwrnted from the shore
and covered by tho guns of the latter, are prop
erly considered as part of the shore defence ap
paratus. It Is true that there Is a system by
which thecoast Is divided Into districts, each
with Its central ship, whose commander has
charge of the local floating defences, but that Is
quite another thing. In Austria, also, coast de
fence Is naturally under tho Minister of War,
as he administers the navy; but It Is also the
army commander of tho district that had charge
of the forts In his area.
It Is not at all prolmble that our forts will ever
be placed under navy control. The distinction
betwren fixed and dialing defences seems
rather more dear and logical here, as In Eng
land, than tho distinction between forts which
are subject to i-ea attack and those which are
liable only tu laud attack, as tho element for
ascribing tho one or the other to the army or the
navy. Besides, even In France, as has been
seen, the War Department Is really supreme
over coast defenco. As to Germany, the contrast
between her short roast line and oar enormous
one Is not more remarkable than between her
great army, which gives the War Offlce all It
tan attend to, and our little regular establish
ment, whlih would find a great jart of It nceu
potion gone with the forts and their garrisons
taken from it. There is every reason to sumiose,
therefore, that, even if the Marine Corps should
he turned Into coast artillery, it would tie trans
ferred to the War Department Instead nf hay
Ing the heavy artillery In that rate transferred
with the charge of the searoast forts to thn
navy. That would be too much like having the
tall wag the dog.

The Rev. Charles J. Kelly, who succeeded the

Church of Our Lady of Grace In Hoboken. has
decided to reopen the big parochial school on
Sept. 4. Tbo school ho been closed for about a
year. Father Corrigan made an effort about a
year ago to have the publlo school trustee take
charge of the parochial school and otsumo tho
expense of running it. The truttees were un
able to see their way clear to complying with
Father Corrigan' request,
Father Corrigan tUon closed th school, and
the school trustees were forced to find accom

children who had attended tho parochial school.
They took In aa many children a they could
find room for, but the schools were overcrowded
and a great many ware left out.
The reason given by Father Corrigan for clos

not afford the expense. Father Kelly said on
Sunday that the parish is lu a flourishing condi
tion financially, and praised the congregation
for thslr liberality. The school will be In charge
of th Sisters of Charity.
