but was not held until after C
About 1 oclock people began to crowd the
Sixth and Ninth avenue elevated traIns on
their way to 16Mb street where trains ot tho
New York and Northern road were to take
them to Dunwoodlo a few minutes walk from
Valentine Hill For about nn hour everything
went woll but shortly after noon when there
was a big rush the delay began There were I
not enough trains on tho Now York and
Norhor to relieve tho 155th street sta
tion ot the crowds that
tat poured Into It
A a result the elevated road wa
blocked and trains were compelled to wait
on the track from the end of the road
n far down as lOt street for a longtime
Thousands got out on tho tracks and walked
t 155th street Between 9 and 8 oclock the
rush wagreatest Then the large number of
men who crowded the tracks frightened the
elevated road poople and tho poltco were called
to keep the tracks clear They couldnt do it
An express train took a hour and a half to go
from 104th street to the end of the road
When I became clear to tho low York and
Northern road that they hadnt train enough
elevated road trains were run from the 155th
street station to Dunwoodle That
Itet elaton woodle arrange
ment didnt help matters much The Now
York and Northern tracks were filled with
trains which 1 required some time to empty al
Dunwoodle Every train was crowded to Ire I
fullest capacity Young men and boys moo I

the engine and many got on the roofs of tho
cars To make the trip Irom 155th street to
Dunwoodle about five miles required on au
average two hours and In some cases as ion
A three hour and a half At least A thoutand
people walked half the war Whon 1 delay oc
curred many young men got out and walked
to tho head ot tbe line of trains a dUtance In
sOle cases of hal a mile Then they board
ed the first train and remained on it untIl It
came up with the next string of blocked cars
Hero they walked up t the head again They
pursued this course until Dunwoodlo was
reached A few women did some walking too
Trains that according to ncliedule time
should hnvo reached DUD woodle between 2 and
3 oclock didnt get there until between 5 and
G Thousands became disgusted and started

Xenomtnate Seeretnry Morehonio and
Tryto prop Secretary Pope The Ho
elety May Overthrow tale Ire
An effort will be made at the Annual meetlog
of the American Baptist Home Mission Society
In Cincinnati Wednesday next to prevent
the reelection of the General Secretary the
Rev Dr Henry L Morehouso of Brooklyn
The friends of Mr Morshoute will strenu
ously npoort him and there doubtless will
b some unpleasant friction Dr Morobouso
who la a bachelor clergyman without
Q to i charged with diverting
from Its proper use money entrusted to
his care I one of the trustees of the Cham
berlain fund the income of which goes to the
Loland University a Baptist educational In
stitution for colored poople In New Orleans
According to some of the Board of the Home
Mission Society 10e charge against the Bar
Dr Morohouo wore made at a meeting of
the Board with much emphasis by Dr
0 0 Pp of this city reoutrd to
a wealthy Texan and a member of the Day
Dr McArthurs church Dr MoAithur la
the ReT Dr Pope is a hightoned gentleman
Dr Pope said that Dr Morehouse had mis
appropriated the Income of lh Chamberlain
fund and that bo was a stock gambler Dr
Morebouso got up and defended himself with
vigor accusing Dr PoP of being a stock
gambler also
This incident led the trustees of the Cham
berlain fund ono of whom i Prof John C
Overhelserof this city and another the RI
Hiram Uutchlns of Brooklyn to investigate
the accounts of the Rev Dr Morehouse
The trustees had relied Implicitly on the
honor of Dr HorehouEe and had left the en
tire management of the fund to him
They employed an expert accountant who
found that the income ot the fund bad been di
verted from its proper Uio Through tbe
good offices it II i said of a distinguished
Baptist clergyman on friendly terms with John
D Rockefeller Morohouso obtained a loan big
enough pay back tho money still duo to the
Leland University variously stated to be from
JIBOO to f2Boo with Interest for the years
use of it
Factions have arisen over this affair One
report la that the Board of the Mission boclety
refuted to net in tbo matter because they
I raid I wa Dot within blCAUSCj juris
i diction aa the offence WUB not committed
I against the society und that the liar Dr
Morehouso was responsible to the society it
self and not urn Hoard I
I Dr Popes friends nay that Dr Morehouso
borrowed 11000 from Dr Pope And that when
Dr More bouse paid It back Dr lope discov
ered that Dr Morehouse was using tbe < Cham
berlain fund
Dr POPO warned Dr Morehouse that It wan
not right and the two had a colloquy warmer
than clergymen usually Indulge In Dr Pooo
house then made his charge against Dr DrJooo
On tne other hand a member tbe Board
said last night Mrny exaggerated stories
have been living about wltnregard to both
principals In this < controversy Dr Morehouse
is the Uonornl MroretRrr of time Home Mission
Boclety a position superior to that of Dr
poBton
rope who Is Secretary of the Church Edifice
Board I Both speculated more or less In Wall
Wal
street and Dr Popo got pinched Bo was In A
tight plaee and Dr Slorehonse lent him
mone t lt out
Later on thl ilatlon between them became
strained and each made accusation alI nit
the other Dr Pope came to the Executive
Board of the society with the story that Dr
Morehouse had used money from a college
fund entrusted to hU car The Executive
Board controls both men
An Investigation was begun at once It re
sulted In the vindication of Dr Morehouse
from all taint of dishonesty He admitted
having used a small sum as WAS charged but
said that It wns gloen t Dr Pope to help him
In bin predicament
Tbe money be afterward placed li t t true
that be ba loans from John D Itookefeller
but there In nothing unusual In this as the
two were personal friend
The whole thing has a commercial trans
action which con b viewed of course
acton Ylewed coure
In many ways The Executive Board
however don not Executve More
houses Integrity to lie impeached The
Board is with Dr Morehouso wholly and ab
solutely and tho result of His proceedings has
been more detrimental to Dr Pope the I mail
gator nf Its Investigation than to any one else
His resignation has not gen asked for but a
six necks vacation < has been given him
Ho left for tho Boutb lout week and may be
anl
present nt the meeting in Cincinnati Uliou
the general election la held on Thursday bow
ever bin name will not bo presented for the
oflice ha has held
This Is tbo result of tho Boards deliberations
and he has been Doarl It deJhcratone Il0ro
house will bo renotnlnnted however And there
seems to b good prospect of his reelection l
ha
There will bo no formal presentation of the
matter by the Board A new man will Imply
be put In Dr Popes place mll

fjarsxoir CERTIFICATES Jl2lDz V
Beeretary Tester Fears There Will Be e >
Large Deflcleiey In the Treasury
WismNOTON Mill 17Tho Washington
Gaiettt today charges that the payment of
pension certificates In case that have ben
completed is f being withheld at tho order of
Secretary Foster who fears that there will bo
a large deficiency In the Treasury at the 9nd
of tbo fiscal year The Gazelle says
The pension attorneys who have hundreds
of cotes on file are writing to thn Pension Of
flee every day asking why certificates lor the
completed Cal are not issued I and In most
cases tho letters of the attorneys remain un
answered
I appears that Commissioner Baum Is J act
ing under instruction from Secretary Foster
to ward off a largo deficiency which seems
inevitable Instead of Issuing certificate for
cases In tho completed flies the Pension Offjci
Is pushing with all the flroo l Its command
oases filed under the Disability not of Juno
1800 Last month 30000 claims under the not
of June 1800 were issued and comparatively
few cases on the completed files warn touched
Tho Commissioner understands tho position In
which he placed and hence ho is f willing to
let the completed a rest take all the cr1
clzm of the attorney and listen patiently to
the tales of woe the claimants pour into
his ear it he can only avert a doflcloncjr Then
Is a material difference in tbo amount received
by the pensioner whose claim is filed under
the act of Juno 1800 and the claim In the com
pleted file Tho average difference to between
100 and 300
If the CommIssioner would Issue
certificates for the completed casea sale
a prominent attorney it Is doubtful
if there would be anything like A surplus
loft in the Treasury alter the pensions for June
aud July have been satisfied Of course It is
possible that the pension appropriation may
be strung out until the beginning of the fiscal
year when the appropriation mode last Con
gress becomes available but in order to do so
the Commissioner must greatly curtail the
issuance of pensions
