MAX O'REM.'S KTATF.MKNT THAT THF.Y FORM l_ PER TENT of" THE ?VHOLE FAR FROM THE TRI'TH-l PEI? < TNT IS NEARER RIGHT. Max O'Rell (Paul Blouet), the well-known French lecturer, who has given many interesting and in? structive talks in New-York City, recently made the startling statement that twelve per cent of the children born In New-York City were Illegiti? mate. Several persons have objected to this dec? laration, and have ask- 1 on what ground Max O'Rell bases such an assertion. When asked uout the matter the lecturer Baud: "My statement was mt ;> upon information re? ceived from one of the best-known lawyers In this City. I do not care to gttrs his num. to the public, but I have every conlid--nc- in hi- word. I have not studied the matter myself, ?ml cannot quote any statistics in support of what I have said. If official document? can be shown, proving tbal I am in error, I will gladly retract 1 never hold on to an sssertion when It Is disproved." The following ligures on this subject were fur? nished to The Tribune by General Emmons Clark, ?aeretary of the Health Board: T'.IhI tiirrin Illegi-t Year. :?; rtd. m-"-. 181)1.40 11-14 l.ll.t MC.?19,447 1,207 MM.51.52? 1.241 1-D4.5.V?IU i.ooa Percent*??* Of Intnl. _ ?.4 1.44 2 41 i M General Clark said further: "This department iias n-. Information in respect to llleg.t?mate births, except as the evident-; of Il? legitimacy appears upon the rTirn? of births made for public rec 'M, in compilan?*? with law. As the Illegitimate births occurring in the maternity and lying-in boapitale of this city are reported regularly and fully. It is hardly poealbt? that the percentage Of Illegitimate births would prove to be mue than 3 or 4 per cent of the entire number, and ? per cent would be an exceedingly liberal ? stimate. It siemi hardly possible that Max O'Rell could have made the statement attributed to him, that 12 per cent of the children born In New-York are illegitimate, as there are no statistics upon which he could safely base any statement on the subject, except those furnished y.u herewith."

Episcopal Church of this City and Brooklyn met at the Church Missions House, Twenty-second-st. and Pourtb-ave. on Tues? day to declare themselves on the subiect of the opening of barrooms on Bundsy. The Rev. Dr. Henry T. Satterlee presided, and the Rev. i?r.-. Huntlactoa, Vlbbert and Brldgman presented rese ? lutions whi.-h were unanimously adopted. Tb?ese i wen-: in view- of the publicly announced purpose of the liquor-dealers of this city und other cities to seek from the ?-omlr.ir Legislature of the State of New York a law permitting the opei ing of saloons during certain hours on Sunday, th.? un lerslgned, for them? selves and tithtrs. whose views they represent, sub? mit: 1. That there ?s nothing in the tra.ie of the saloon? keeper which should make i; an exception to the loni; s.-:t!?d policy of the State, which prot ? ts ill? rlghi ol real and ?inlet worship on Sunday, by forbidding ordinary traille on thai day. 2. That the Sunday liquor traffic i-- especial y dan? gerous, because on thai day large numbers, released from their ordinary employment, are tempted by the op.n sa...on to spend in drink and dissipation the earnings needed for the support of their fami? lles. '?'.. That the deleterious Influence of ;he Sunday si ! .on Is shown by the remonstrances which ??re uni? formly made by all religious bodies against lb? location of saloons in I be neighborhood ?if their church? a. 4. That the social and political advantages which attract to our land such larue numbers of immi? grants ar<- . hiefly din- to that Intelligence and morality which the American Sunday observance nurturi s, and our foreign-bPi n feitow-cttlaeni should gladly submit to the restrictions which esperten? - shows to be needful iu the nest Interests of all . lass? i .'.. That the experience of former years In this rind other ??ties shows that with an honest and Incor? ruptible polii - Sunday ?-losm?; of the sal ,on can be substantially enforced. Kor th?-???. among other reasons, we protest against the )>roposed change, and appeal t?i all who seek to Improve ths conditions of life in our large Cities to resist ihe attempt of the saloonke-pers to secure ihe sanction of law fot their Sunday trafli.? nnd coadonement of their present and past defiance of existing statutes It was resolved that Bishop Potter be rerii!e?"?,i | to present the resolutions to the Legislature. The statement was signed by the clergy present, end it Is expected that a large majority of the clergy of the Episcopal Church in the dioceses of New-York i'lll Sign the document before It is Bent to Albany. TALE FINDS IT AMUSING. MEM oRAi'l.rs think HARVARD WILL. COME BACK INTO TH!! ?V.iTI'.AU, WOPXD--CAP? TAIN BREWKB'g VIEWS K??W-Haven, March 20 ispccln'.).?A singlo topic w.-.s talked of on th- Yale campus to-day?the action of the Harvard faculty in voting that it was their opinion th^ no student of the university should hereafter tike part n Intercollegiate foot bail. The t,-' neral feeling seemed to be one of amusement. Walter Camp said: "I hardly Know the Status of ti .nj4s in Cambridge well enough to know whether to conclude that th? K?me la doomed or not. fine thing ?s certain, though?the Advisory Committee of the Intercollegiate Football Association received letters fren Captain Brewer, l?r. HrookM and Pro? fessor Am?-s, of Harvard, agreeing with the com? mittee that a general conference was advisable to revise the rules extensively, and, in casa the con? ference Is call-d. Harvard will be invited to s- nd representatives? without reference to any action by the faculty." Captain Thorns said: "I ?'...n*t cars to crltldea Iba action of the Harvard faculty, bul i am sorry they feel uk they lo. 1 had hoped that they would re peni of their d?termination to atop football play? ing. Harvard has no agreement to meet Tals neal year, the four years' agreement having ?spiel last December, w.? have sgreed ta meet theli capta .. .s ?on and discuss next year's gaaies, bul ws Ihk waited till the present agitation was over, har? vard? ??? n.lition will make no differ? oce with our playing with .?th.r cotlegea." To prove hi? ?roi la Captain Thorns took out his football s.iuad this afternoon to train f?.r n.-xr. year. Howard Knapp, the Tala fo?itball coach, now in? structor In the Yale I/aw School, said: "This u.tl in of the Harvard faculty rimlr.i? us of the one they took In i*?4, when the Athletic Committee prohibited th? cime, and th.-n the same body of men the next year restored it " Professor 1.. U htcrtarda, chairman of the Ath ' letlc Oommlt'ee of the Tale faculty, sill to-nl-iht: The Harvard faculty have done a very foolish ; thine, but I have hj ,:e-lre ; , criticise Lei tn?- si it?? a few fscts though. Th? y will, if they have taken ? the action reported In tii?- papers, back down a? 1 they have In everything looking toward what they call athletic reform. They voted noi to sllow Hsr vail t.:ani'i to play professionals, an 1 then rei .. ; the ru>; they prohibited athl.t-...- games outside of New-England, and now w ? see them koi?:^- to PI 11 deli hi.? ?they forbade intercollegiate athletic con ? I ?ml th.- next year abrogated that rule. \ i i can't grow till It has llbertj, it <-in't always be bel ! by th.? ieadrng strings. The Harvard policy la one of Interference. That's all that can be said ?>f it. If the Harvard faculty would throw the- responsibility on the Ktudents they would stop saying: 'Tas r'-fer??* l^>atuB." "Th?-othereide play?! ningh.' or "They were mean,'' or. In short, anythliiK but the fact that they wert outplay-1. Every manly Harvard graduate must feel a ?ha me l of su ?h a vaclllattns policy. Observa how the vote of th?- Harvard faculty wa worded y.-sterday. Y ni can'I pin a single sentence of it down to dennlteness. They left plenty of i ?op holes tor escape. Tale will play football as u?u_!, without refer? nee to liai vard B ston, March M*.?C?ptala Arthur lirewer of the Harvard eleven has this letter in "The Crimson'" to-day regarding the action tik-n yeaterday by the faculty of the college sgainsi football: Whether last evening.'* vote of th<- faculty 1? wise or not is to be ?e<-:i in future years; whether they have really act.-.i toward the prosperity of our be? loved coll?ge remain? yel to be proved. Por the pres-nt at leant th.- deed i?. done, snd, sa we think, p. i haps one of our most manly sports has bees torn from un Bul sre we actually In a position to (|iiestion the wisdom of this action? slop a moment and think if we, as undergraduates oi ly In this college, consider that we can Judge with that Judgment that comes from experience. I? It not better to trust to th- foresight "f our .11-: , in experience at toast? Surely they realize the Im poru?ee of the step they have taken, and an? will? ing to accent th?: result, which they must alncerely believe will be only t.. ?,ur advantage. Is ,t not more discourteous to the faculty, our intended benefactors, it we tear to pieces their opinions nnl criticise them pi.?meal we, only undergraduates who have scarcely reached our twenties? Surely we ars not so vain as to believe th?u they carry enormous weight with them. Lei it In f..r other? to criticise; let It be for those w no justly believe themselves capable; bul lei ui at least prove ourselves gentlemen, courteous and manly. A. H. BREWER. The editorial In "The Crimson" expressed the idea that, nince there Is nothing to be don?, ih.? bast ??ray '? to submit in peace. It. how-ev-r. BtlCkS to It? previous opinion that the action la "mistaken und lll-tlmed. William Hooper, a graduate member of the Ath? letic Committee of Harvard, has this to say on the latest action of the faculty In regard to football: I BUnpoee the faculty can stop the gam?? If they want to, by making such rule.? and regulations as will keep th?- boys off the ti-id. if I understand the function of th?- Athletic Committee II is to have authoritative and linal sny as regards athletics at Harvard. As far as i am concerned I Khali be in favor ..f standing up and Baying that our recom? mendation shall stand or ihn? we shall resign. We are either something or nothing. H WS do not suit the corporation, they ?an remove us at the end of the year. I think that th?- Yah? nun are to blame for this thing. When men of years and standing and ex p. rtence rose and pul?ii<-iy patted Hlnkey on the back, it created an Impression among the Har? vard faculty that then- must be a stop put to the ?ame. Dr. K. H. Bradford, member of the Advisory Committee on Athletics, said: Th- faculty waa .n the wrong In the first place wh< a it sen) lo us the notice to discontinue inter . ?Deflate football games. Thai body has no juris? diction over us whatever. Where w<- made our mistake was In not carrying the matter up to th?? ..v.:'-err in the iirst place, when ths faculty was acting plalaly beyond it^- powers, bul we knew it would causa some friction. The Athletic Commit? tee Is not liable to cbaiiis'?? us position, which Is unanimously in favor of sltowlng the sp-jrt to go on. If President Eliot bad been here th.? under? graduates would not have been forbidden to play, for he wanted to s.-.? the game of football regu? lated as i tn?-?! through another season. UP.
