New Tork, May 27. Chauncey M.
Depew has nothing to take back from
the Interview that called forth criticism
from Bishop C.C.McCabe, of the Metho
dist Episcopal church. He said:- "I
said that in England I had found a
sentiment of decided friendship for this
country. There was a feeling that blood
was thicker than water, and that the
two nations should not go to war. In
this country, on the other hand, I saw
a decided spirit of antagonism.
'It was Fhown first In the eagerness
with which the country applauded
Cleveland's war message at the time cf
th? Venezuelan trouble. Later it was
shown In the defeat of the arbitration
treaty a measure which I strongly fa
vcrcd and in the very listless support
of It. Not long ago a United Slates
senator told me that but for the effect
of It upon the Republican party lie
would favor war with England."

Pats In a Bid Matters Tp Yesterday.
Eagle Lake, Ind., May 27. The exodus
from the general assembly has already
begun. Yesterday the meetings of the
Women's Foreign Missionary executive
committee closed, and the number of
those who left at once was considerable.
The number of visitors brought by tbe
fine weather made up for the lack, but
a slimmer attendance at the evening
popular meeting was very apparent. At
coon the grounds about the auditorium
were dotted with picnic parties, and
bright colors replaced the more sombre
hues that had been in evidence earlier.
The assembly has got through vith
meat of its sensational work and has
settled down to business. The desire
to get to the end was seen In an un
wiliir.nc?a to endure long debate, even
upon important matters, and this fail
ing will find more frequent manifesta

Calls for invitations for the next gen

assembly is in the field making the
body to return, but the probability is
kthat mere commissioners will favor
Philadelphia. One cf Winona's argu
ments is that the location is so favora
ble that it saves about G.000 in mileage
alone. The plea of Philadelphia is that
the new Wilherpoon building of th2
beard of publication will have been fin
ished, and the assembly should visit
the Quaker City to Inspect its proper
ty. The decision will not be reached for
a couple of days yet. Yesterday morn
