London. June (5, 1 a. m.— The members of the
New-York Chamber of Commerce had the
pleasurable excitement of being lionized by the
London Chamber of Commerce at the Grocers'
Hall. It was a hospitable dinner and an im
1 resfive scene, and the good feeling was Infec
tious. The whole front table was forced to rise

a happy, smiling: group. Andrew Carnegie was

J. Pierpont Morgan modestly concealed him
self behind Mr. Morton ¦when the photographer's
flash came, yet he remained the dominant feat

craning their necks to make him out.
This international millionaire conference was
rnnrked by a splendid array of gold plate, piled
up behind the chairman, consisting of loving
cups and platters' and other property of th*
Thn galleries were filled with women, and the
conversation between the hosts and their
guests was far more animated than on ordinary
occasions of a festive- character. The table
decorations were exclusively English roses, and
the old hall was stately in its dignity of old oak
A half dozen American speeches were made,
by Morris K. Jeeup. Andrew Carnegie. Joseph

Lansdowne. the Lord Chief Justice, and other
famous Englishmen returned the American com

London. June s.— At the banquet tendered by
the London Chamber of Commerce to the dele

American guests, but it must be confessed that
the latter did not sustain the reputation America
has for brilliant after dinner speaking, nor did
the British speakers do much to relieve the
i tedium of four hours of addresses.
All th" speeches, however, teemed with ex
treme friendliness and faith in the establishment
of permanent friendly relations. All the speak
ers expressed the belief that Great Britain and
the United States would rule the destinies of
the world, and that their unwritten alliance

Lord Avebury. president of the Associated
Chambers of Commerce, and J. Pierpont Morgan
were among those seated at the table of honor.
In all nearly three hundred were present.
THE WELCOME TO AMERICANS
In welcoming the delegates Lord Brassey, who
made the first speech, said:
We welcome them as the representatives of
the skill and enterprise which have turned the
vast resources of the American continent to the
service of mankind. We are largely sharers in
these benefits. Our teeming millions could not
live without the food America produces and
the raw materials for our Industries. America
teaches us lessons not only In the creation but
in the liberal distribution of wealth.
Referring to the debt Great Britain owed to
the New-York Chamber of Commerce at the
time the Venezuela difficulty arose. Lord Bras
pey said ac desired to mark Great Britain's de»p
sense of the service rendered, adding:
To no other nation are we drawn as we are
to our kinsmen across the Atlantic. Th«» wisely
directed friendship of our two peoples — not as
yet, and perhaps never to be cemented by for
mal alliance — should be a potent influence.
"Working together for the common good of all
mankind, we may keep open the door for trade.
we may spread civilization, we may protect the
oppressed, and we may establish peace among
There was a murmur of expectancy as Lord
Lansdowne, the Foreign Secretary, rose to toast
President M-'Kinley. He said:
I Imagine that this honorable duty has been
assigned to me because 1 am connected with
the Department of Foreign Affairs, and because
it may be that a toast coming from my lips
may seem to d^not 1 ? something more than a
mere private expression of admiration and good
will. I think I may say that to all the subjects
of his majesty, it requires an effort to think of
our relations 'with the Unit"! States as foreign
relations. <r'ro!<nped cheers.) All 'ho?.- who
like myself, are servants of the public feel
that they hold an unwritten commission that
no pains shall be spared to maintain the most
friendly relations. . ... ,
With regard to President McKlnley. we think
of the great office he fills, and. in addition to
his public cares. we remember the burden of
private anxiety he has to bear, and it is the
prayer of our whole country that his wife may
be restored to health and that he may continue

THE REPLY OF MR. .TESIT
Morris K. Je?up. president of the New-York
Chamber of Commerce, replying to the address
of welcome, spoke as follows:
Mr. Chairman. My Lords and Gentlemen: It is
said that kind words are the music of the »oria.
For the gracious and kindly words with which
you have made us welcome, and for the gener
ous warmth of our reception manifested in every

London. June 6. 1 a. m.— The Dante Society
held a high literary carnival yesterday after
noon in its academic quarters in Harley-st., and
literary, singularly enough, under American au
spices Mrs. Craigie was delivering a lecture on
Dante and Botticelli, and the American Ambas
sador was Introducing her. She appeared before
a large audience in a most becoming costume of
white, and read a short paper in which the
lives and characters of the poet and painter
w?re connected with literary art.
It was a brilliant essay, happily phrased and
containing many characteristic examples of keen
analysis and luminous style. One of the neat
est hits was the explanation that when the old
time Florentine painters wished to paint a
saint they employed as a model some sinner of
irreproachable birth and good social standing.
When Mrs. Cralgic had closed her delightful
paper, the American Ambassador took up the
parable and reverted to his experiences at Har
vard, when he was a pupil of Longfellow and
there was an ideal Dante society at Boston. It
consisted of three member! Longfellow, Lowell
and Norton. He also referred to the present
objective aim in London of a Dante Society
foundation library, devoted to the Italian mas
ter, and excited the envy of the members by
describing the splendid Dante library which had
been collected at Cornell University.
John Moray's reference last night to Mr. Car
negie's scheme of benefiting the Scottish univer
sities has given great satisfaction. Pome critics
were inclined to object to the scheme, because.
it was thought, it would have been a bribe to
the youths of Scotland to be content with
an inferior education. What Mr. Carnegie
really intends is to make education at the
Scottish universities at one and the same time
better, cheaper and more widely extended
The English bench and bar rallied in force
at the King's Hall Hoi born Restaurant last
night to pay a splendid tribute to Matt re Labort
Over five hundred judges, barristers and so
licitors were present at the Hardwicke Society's
dinner, and wit:, th. exception of the Lord
Chief Justice 10 prominent jurist or lawyer
was absent. The regular order of proceedings
was followed until after 11 o'clock, with a series
of dull, perfunctory speeches by Justices
Hodges. Lord Hardwicke. Sir Edward Carson.
Lord Halsbury. Sir Robert Finlay. Sir Francis
Jeune and others. Nearly every speaker re
ferred prematurely to M. Labori, and there was
enthusiastic applause when on.- or two of the
prosiest speakers were reminded bluntly that
they must not waste time.
At last, after the King, Parliament and bench
and bar had been duly honored, M. Labori's
turn came, and the great hall «as swept with
a tempest of appUuse. Tall, erect, with flash
ing eyes and a unique personality which electri
fied his audience, be towered beside the somno
lent Lord Chancellor and made a speech in
English which nobody present would be likely
He began with apologies for using the English
tongue, but invalidated them by a display of
fiery eloquence, pointed and emphasized by
French action and dramatic gestures. He spoke,
without hesitation, and with splendid force and
masterful simplicity. He declined to regard the
compliments showered upon him as personal
flatteries and. although he was deeply touched
by them' he had merely done his professional
duty and the English bar was recognizing the
truth that the right of defence was a natural
right which it was the common aim and solemn
obligation of lawyers of all nations to protect.
He reduced the legal practice of the civilized
world to th« syllogism that without the right of
defence there could he no bar, and that without
a bar there could be no independence.
The. effect of this eloquent plea, delivered with
strong gestures, vibrating voice end flashing
eyes was fairly electric. There was a tumult
of applause when this champion of the bar of
all countries took his seat, and the Hardwire
Society was conscious that it had dignified the
legal profession In honoring the defender of
Dreyfus. . I. N. F.

PHYSICIANS DIVIDED AS TO TTS DE
DRfl DOTY AND FOWLER THINK IT WIT.L
NOT BE PRACTICABLE TO EXAMINE
ALL FOR TUBERCULOSIS
The exclusive announcement in The Tribune
yesterday that T. V Powderly. Commissioner-
General of Immigration, had Instructed Com
missioner Fit. -hie at this port to debar in
future all immigrants afflicted with tuberculosis
aroused keen Interest among those New -York
physicians who have been trying for some time
to impress upon the public the fart that con
sumption is a communicable disease Opinions
were not unanimous, however, M to whether it
was a commendable step forward in official rec
ognition of medical science or ft rather teio draf
tic treatment of Immlgants afflicted by a dlse.irc
whose spread may be checked by th- use of
extremely simple precaution?. Some physicians
seen by a Tribune reporter yesterday were un
willing to let their names be published for fear
that they might be misunderstood as rppoMng
the Federal Government's policy, but one said:
"The public is not yet prepared for this step;
and while It is along the line of progress, yet It
will by its harshness check rather than help the
growing feeling among the masses that con
sumptives are dangerous to those around them.
The recent crusade of the local Health Board
acainst spitting in the streetcars was one phase
of the education of the public, and the hearty
way in which that crusade waa supported by
the press and the people showed a gratifying In
crease In the general intellißence. Yet a propo
sition made now forcibly to remove all persons
afflicted with tuberculosis from their friends and
families, as is done with smallpox patients,
would arouse a violent storm of Indignation and
set back for years the progress which has beer
already made toward thai end. 1 think this bar
to immigrants will have the same effect, be
cause the public will get the Idea thai medical
men have become crank"; on tuberculosis. Tbe
people ill ask: "Is it reasonable to exclude im
migrants from our shores because they are suf
fering from a disease against which we raise no
quarantine within our borders?' and I think we
should have to admit thai such discrimination
is not reasonable, It would be better, 1 think.
to wait until we isolate our consumptives at
home before we raise an Insurmountable barrier
against consumptives coming from abroad."
Another physician took exception to this ar
gument, and pointed out the fact thai while we
do not Isolate persons In this city who are afflict
ed with leprosy or favus, we still debar all immi
grants suffering from those diseases, and public
opinion sustains the immigration officials in so
NOT COMMUNICABLE IN EARLY STAGES.
Or. George B. Fowler, of No 18 Knst Fifty
This step Is too radical, I think. I have given a
gn.it deal of attention to tuberculosis, and I do not
consider it to be communicable in Its Incipient
stages but only when the expectoration has become,
profuse. The 'examination of a person guspected
of the disease Is not to be done in haste, and If
rot done carefully Is not worth doing at all. In
many cases it would resolve Itself Into a battle of
exports over this and that individual. Such ex
aminations would involve distinction altogether too

bureau. In a word, the vox regulation is not prac
At the Loomis Sanatorium for Consumptives,
No t<">4 West Forty-ninth-st.. where chronic
and incurable patients are housed, the reporter
was told that In spite of the close contact In
which the nurses were obliged to come with the
slowly dying inmates, not one nurse had ever
developed the disease. This Is attributed to the
strict precautions taken to collect the sputa In
little paper boxes and burn them in a furnace.
By means of the sputum only is the disease com
municated. The same precautions taken in the
sanatorium could, of course, be taken in th»
patients' homes, but the trouble is that such
care is not taken In the homes. : nd even in the
hospital the officers, nurses and attendants have
to keep unremitting watch upon most of the
patients, especially the poorer and more ignorant
ones, to prevent them from carelessly disregard
ing the rules of the Institution as to the deposit
of sputum not In handkerchiefs, but in the little
paper boxes provided. The reporter was also

TILLMAN RETAINS HIS SEAT
SAYS HE IS FORCED TO WITHDRAW
RESIGNATION BY M'LAURLVS "UNDIG
NIFIED AND PUERILE ACTION."
[ny Trt.E ,n.ini TO THE TRIBUNE.]
Columbia. P. C. June .".—Senator Tillman
withdrew his resignation ps Senator to-night.
He wrote the following letter to Governor M. - -
Rweene] under to-day's date:
I am in receipt of your telegram, in which you
say: "1 understand Senator McLaurin's letter
to be a withdrawal of his resignation." and I
have read that worthy's communication in which
he graciously consents at your request "to hold
on to hi.« commission as ITnlted States Senator,
and continue to serve the State as he has done
In the past 1.1 the be-st of his ability."
This leaves me one of three alternatives; to
appeal to th«? Democratic Executive Committee
to take the- matter up and determine what the
best Interest of the party requires to be done;
to HT>pe,Tl •.. tns Senate Itself to determine the
question ns tn whether a resignation from that
lw»dy to take effect at some future time is bind
ing, or withdraw my own resignation.
There are no precedents on this subject, be
cause In the hundred an.! twenty-five years of
our national life, with more than two hundred
resignations from the Senate, no Senator has
hitherto been willing t.» oooupy lh< despicable
attitude now assume I by Senator McLaurin
and forced on v. •• I am certain of one thing:
thai th" Executive of a State has no authority
to decline a resignation that has been tendered,
and I am equally certain that had your ex
cellency confined your action within legal
bounds your appointees would be seat 1 in
the Senate when th.-it body meets in December
and bold their s« its until the Legislature should
net in January.
My chief regret is that I am forced by your
action to engage In what the outside worM will
consider a same of: opera bouffe, by withdraw
ing my own resignation after Senator McLau
i In'a undignified and puerile action; but the pur
pose for which it was tendered has been thwart
•-¦il by Senator McLaurin's precipitous acceptance
of Executive advice. Bob" Acres has been out
• •.' •!•• for once.
As 1 hive already said. I had no motive
or purpose In resigning except to force M< -
Laurin's resignatlcn, rind there is nothing for
me to do but accept the situation and withdraw
my own resignation, if it be lawful to do so.
MAY RE NEW RESIGNATIONS.
With the Governor's "last word" at Senator Till
man and th( withdrawal of the Senator's resig
nation all would seem to be over, but to-night
Senator McLaurin! after speaking bitterly of
the senior Senator, made the declaration that If
Tillman will now tender to the Governor the
unconditional resignation of his office, he (Me-
Laurln) would consider this a direct challenge
to him an. l would likewise resign and enter the
contest for Tillraan's place.
Governor McSweeney'a letter was a surprise
to Senator Tillmon. He has been making and
unmaking Governors anil Senators for so many
years that a revolt never occurred to him. The
Senator was intercepted this afternoon while
going to attend the closing exercises of the
State College for Women. in which he takes
great pride, and a copy of the Governor's let
ter was shown to him. The Senator remarked:
"He feels that his dignity has been outraged a
little, but he does not touch on the really im
portant point, that he claimed the right to de
cline the resignations."
The Senator was asked if he had noticed the
public Indorsements received by McSweeney.
"Yes, and I notice they are mostly from my old,
Next year, he said, there would be so many
candidates that It would be impossible for Candi
dates to show their fitness for office. It was im
possible for thirty men to be heard In one day.
Governor McSweeney has defeated my plan
and lent himself to McLaurin as a ladder of
escape. I believe that as the people understand
fully the result of Governor -Sweeney ac
tion, : instead of patting himself on the back
and taking the little dozen or forty letters he
has as the consensus of public opinion he will
find he has made an awful blunder as a Demo
crat. The primary next year, unless the com
mitttee arrange to have a double se,t of candi
dates meeting each other from opposite sides
of the State, will be a farce.
Asked if he would resign to enter against Mc-
Laurin next slimmer, Tillman said:
I will not. enter the primary next year. I only
resigned to get at McLaurin. I never would
have done so at Gaffney but for the fact that
the ca'ndiilat.-s who wanted to get at him were
not in a position to do so. In regard to the
question of whether I am entitled to resign or

DR. LATTER TO GO TO CHINA TO STUDY
THE RELIGION AND CUSTOMS.
The American Museum of Natural History is
about to send an expedition into China to study
the life and customs of the Chinese and to col
lect ethnological specimens which will be ex
hibited In this city. The'work will take at least
three years, and will be most thoroughly done.
At the time when China was the centre of the
world's Interest the museum felt the lack of a
Chinese exhibit. A wealthy citizen of this city
heard of the museum's needs in this direction,
and has supplied the funds necessary to carry on
the work. His name will not be made public
at present. The work will be along lines similar
to that now being carried on by the museum in
Siberia. Corea and other countries.
A feature of the expedition will be a careful
study of Buddhism, and to that end Dr. B.
Laufer. bf ' this city. will spend a year in a
Buddhist temple near Peking. He will llv«
with the priests and witness as many of their
religions ceremonies as possible. Dr. Laufer
vi as a member of the Jesus North Pacific ex
pedition sent out by the museum, and was in
Siberia from 1806 until 1900 He said yesterday
to a Tribune reporter:
I have Just finished working up material gath
ered during two years of investigation in Siberia,
and will sail from Sin Francisco for China late
this month. I shall spend the Hi -• few months in
Shanghai, studying the people of the coast and
tneir customs. Then. I shall co to Peking to take
up the study of Rii'Mhism. I hope '•> spend a year
in a Buddhist tt-mple near the capital. I expect to
live the life of the priests and i-^rn from them
the details of their stranse relicion. After that I
am going in'o the Interior to collect ethnological
specimens. In View of the present unsettle^ stare
of the country. I cannot say just where my work
will be done. If Manchuria quiets down it is
quite probable that I shall go into that region. I
do not expect in return to the United Stares for at
least three years.

LEOAIi POINT INVOLVED IN THE INDICT
MENT OF LUIS MORET MUXOZ, AH
RESTF.D IN PORTO RICO.
The grand jury yesterday took up the case of
Luis Morel Munoz, who was arrested in San
Juan on Tuesday on the arrival of the trans
port McClellan. «,n advices from the police of
this city. Complaint was made to the police by
General lTrlbe-ll T rlbe-l of Colombia, that Munoz
failed to deliver $41,690. which was to be given
to Genera] ITribe-Urlb* by Munoz. Munoz, when
arrested, said be bad received a package in
Caracas to deliver to ITribe ITribe, and. being
unaware of the value of in* package, left it
with the purser.
After bearing several witnesses, the grand
jury found an Indictment against Munoz for
grand larceny in the first degree. The papers
will at once be made out for requisition of the
defendant from Porto Rico. After Governor
Odell has signed the papers they will be for
warded to Washington. As this is the first case
since the decision of the Supreme Court in th
insular cases, the Interesting question of whether
an ordinary requisition or an extradition will
have to be prepared la raised This. will be de
termined by the authorities in Washington, in
accordance with the recent decision of the United
States Supreme Court.
Charles Frederick Adams, of the law firm of
Coudert Brothers, at No. 7". Broadway, who pre
pared the complaint in the case of Da Lima
against Collector Bidwell. in which a decision
was handed down in the United States Supreme
Court two weeks ago. gave an expression 01
opinion on the Munoz case at his office yester
day afternoon. He said:
While the cases decided by the United States
Supreme Court in reference to De Lima's an i
Downes's suits don't necessarily decide this point,
as they referred only to customs matters, the
apparent inference of the reasoning of most of
the judges is that Porto Rico is American terri
tory for the purposes of the administration of
criminal justice; therefore the case mentioned is
one in which "interstate rendition" would be al
lowed—that is to say. the prisoner will probably
be brought back to this city on the requisition
of Governor Odell."

London. June 6, 1 a. m.— London has had a fult
American day. The Derby, won by W. C. Whit
ney's Volodyovski in the record time of 2 min
utes 40 4-5 seconds, was run with a half dozen
American jockeys in the saddle, with several
American horse owners striving for the blue
ribbon of the English turf, and with L. ReifC

Reiff's and Mr. Whitney's victory was wit
nessed by a great throng of American visitor*,
and was welcomed with strenuous American
cheers, but it was not an unpopular result, for
the favorite, which won. was an English bred
horse and carried an immense amount of money.
Volodyovski was a hot favorite until his bad
public trial at Newmarket hi the Craven week,
when many of his supporters began to hedg»;
but confidence was. restored when the trainer
was reported to be satisfied with the horse*
condition, and yesterday th« betting was heavily
on him as the best two-year-old of last year.
The race was a splendid show, with an im

display of speed, and was leading when the last
