John O. Wooley Says the Organization Is
Coder -Boss Kale."
Bostox, Xov. 14. John O. Wooley, wto
has a controversy with President Francis
K. Clarke, of the Christian Endeavor, has
written a letter to the society at large in
whfch he declares the societies to bo under
biiu ucvianq muL Liie cor- I
Dotation nolirv" Aftnfttxwl h Ilia I
managemnt leaves nothing to the judg-
ment of tl members. Wooley says: "Tho
president of the corporation that controls
tne united Societies or Christian Endeavor
is also chief owner of the golden rulo.
Therjore some 3.000,000 of us 'privates.'
We have no president, no trustees, no sec

Wooley then refers to SDccches he has
mode criticising tho management and to
replies thereto, as well as to an offer ho
mode to drop the matter, which offer re
ceived no reply. He says that Messrs.
Boer, Shaw aud probably Clarke are party
Prohibitionists. Ho thinks it would bo
better if the 3,000,000 "privates" had "less
chaperoning and more responsibility."
In his conclusion he says: "Nothing
cpuld induce me to lead a dilvsiou of our
society. We ought to be loyal nnd respect
ful to our leaders, but leaders are very
prone to forget that they owo us loyalty
also. And a president of our society whoso
attitude toward the saloon is Indefinite in
its ordinary details is deficient in loyalty
or bravery or capacity."

my name with it. If he knows anything
about the matter he knows that his
charges against mo were without founda

request to my friends was that in cose

should cast their votes for General Harri

To What Gen. Alger Expects.
"Second to him I asked them to support
Senator Sherman. If any money was used,
which I do not believe, to purchase votes
from the south It was against my positive
instructions, and no bill of tho kind has
ever been presented to or paid by me. I
nevor could understand why Senator Sher
man should try to blight t he name of a
man who has never by any act injured
him or any other man" The quotations
to whifti General Alger excepts are thoso
in which Senator Sherman in referring to
the contest for tho presidential nomina
tion of 1833 writes: 'I believe, nnd had
as I thought conclusive proof, that the
friends of General Alger substantially
purchased the votes of many of the dele
gates from the southern states who had
been Instructed by their conventions to
vote for me."
Kefers to Blaine and Conkling.
Sherman says he has no reason to be
lieve that General Harrison resorted in tho
slightest degree to any improper or corrupt
combination to secure his nomination, and
adds that the only feeling of resentment
that lie himself entertained was "in
regard to tho action of the friends of
General Alger in tempting with money
poor negroes to violate the instructions of
their constituents." Senator Sherman in
this volume dwells upon tho history of his
part in the Hayes cabinet, and gives a
pretty complete history of tho famous con
troversy between Blaiue and Conkling,
which was a momentous event in the po
litical history of the next, few yenrs.
Credits Defeat to New York, '
In speaking of the contest for the nom
ination of 1S88 Sherman says: '-On Mon-
day, June sa, 1 did not anticipate a chango
of tho first ballot from the last one on
Saturday. I did expect from my di:
patches that the nomination would be
made that day, aui in my favor, but as
the result proved an arrangement had
been made on Saturday that practically
secured the nomination of General Harri
son. From the best information I could
gather from many persons with whom I
conversed I have no hesitation in express
ing the opinion that I was defeated for
the nomination by Xcw York.
Saya a Corrupt Deal Was Made.
"I believed then, as I believe now, that
one of the delegates from the state of Xew
York practically controlled the wholo del
gation, and that a corrupt bargain was
mado on Sunday which transferred the
great body of the vote of Xcw York to
General Harrison and thus led to his nom
ination. It is to the credit of General
Harrison to say that if the reputed bar
gain was made it was made without bis
consent at tho time, nor did he carry it
