Halneford, rector of EuCeorce Chiircli, In Hutherfurd pUe, hM come out with a protest against extravagance 3J what he terms "ostentatious displays of wealth." While lie does not say so himself. Dr. Ilalnsford's remarks aro directed nt Mr. and )tri. Kradler Martin, wbu are to Hire a fancy dress ball at the Waldorf on Feb. 10. The min ister make" It "J tilaln tbat he ha tome par tlcu!r ecnt Iti tnlnd, and while he will not say It l I11" Kfedley Mtln ball, neither wilt he deny 11' Hr. Rilr.ford docs not denounce the ball as a form of entertainment, and says that he does not mat anybody to think there li anything per. socslln his protests, lie simply thinks, he says, that such an ostentatious dltplay of wenlth, nblih can but seem reckless exlravaganco lo tie great mass of people. Is Injudicious at a time when, as be ears, the lines between the rich nd poor are so tightly drawn. He hat spoken tomemb.rsot his congregation who are among thi lmlted guests of the Ilradley Martins about tbe miner, and. It Is said, has Induced a num ber of tLem to remain an ay. Tbat the well-known rector of St. Meorge's objected to the ball, and that he was doing hat hecoold to detract fmm Its success, has been rumored among tcclety folks for some days, but y did not become generally known until yeater- l dsy, when Dr. Ilalnsford came ont and admit- ted publicly what ho had said anddonelnhls parish prlsatcly. "On what do I base my opposition to lavish dtsptaya of wraith at the present tlmo?" said Dr. Halniford when a reporter asked htm. "1 tollers from the bottom of my heart that this li not a proper time for such affairs. Hare I adrlied ray parishioners not to attend this coming ens? I have. To several I have pointed oct tbe undesirable circumstances, and have adrlied them to abicnt themselves If they can. Some of .htm bare agreed with me and wilt not be present. I am not alone In my opinions on tUi matter. I hare heard similar expressions I within tbe last few days from many persons prominent In the social, financial, and political world. In many quarters I have heard It de plored that such a time as this should be chostn , for inch dliplays. I "No longer ago than Nor. 3 more than 0,000.- COO people expressed their conviction tbat ex isting social conditions In this country were un satisfactory. Whether we like It or not. It Is an lacoatrovertlble fact that a targe proportion of cor population are discontented, and they do rothesltate to express their fellngs. Never wtrs the lines between the two elasses those bo bare wealth and those who envy them more distinctly drawn. It Is my opinion ana tbs cflnlou of man) persons! bare talked with Itiil ostentatious allalrs such as this serve to accentuate existing eoclal differences. Tnry draw attention to the widening chasm between U. two daiies 1 have mentioned, and should therefor be discouraged. Such affairs give drawn s excuse for attacking the East, and foralia texts for homilies nn the hearties ex trsTiitue of the wealthy In the face of poverty aaddtiutatlon. "Idoit want people to think that I am op posed te social entertainment. On tbe con- trsry.Iaratn favorortbrrn. Hut there should Uartascnable limit lo display ana reason- - Sbtstltnscnuen for It. The present Is not such a lime. MoMy la not the root nf all evil, bat- 4.tUsloveetUU. That text I directed against - "' the tnvlnoi poor man aaweltaa the selfish mil lionaire. To gratuitously arouse the discontent and aereamate the poverty of the unfortunate , In such days as these is an action greatly to be deplored. To defend inch a courco ty saying that it puts money Into circulation Is utterly fallacious. Tits money spent does uot circulate Jar. It benefits people already wealthy dor Ill, ratrreri. and fashionable modistes. "There are many members of society who practise luxurlan. hospitality and are In evl dea.e at brilliant ent-rtalnments given by oth tr, ti ho ill. believe, deprecate the ostenta turn dlsn.ay of wealth. I think that those wlin make their home In this country under sujJ this better tban those who spend much Jtlielr time abroad. With want on every side, witii discontent rife among the lower orders of sicietj.itwuuldseem unwise to offer texts for f 'Im.)tnei and nolltlcal extremists." Ilr. Mainaford declined to say more tban this about tue matter, but he did say a few words In Jt1,1c'bli action In speaking of the matter "Oneof the difficulties of the time." he said.

" 1 am Just certain tbat all tbe good people of our city will thank Dr. Ilalnafurd for the mnnly words he uttered concerning the Ilradley Martin ball. They were timely. '1 hat there I n deep feeling on the Question of the rich and the poor no one tan dl.puto. After such a heated political period as the one through which we Just passed. In which so many sharp thing were said concerning the chasm between the rich and poor, It would soem wise to gl e as lit tle occasion as poitlblo for drawing the line any deeper." Tho Itt-v. Dr. Robert H. MacArthur ot Cal vary Iiaptlst Church, West fifty-seventh street, said: "Class feeling, which alway exists, ha been greatly Increarrd recently, during try ing time ln business, by political detna Kogiirs. and at the present time a great display of wealth tends unwholesoniely and perhaps dangerously, to excite the envy that Is at th" bottom of class feeling. Many good phllanthroplo cause are suffering for the lack of money. And within a .tune' throw of actual want ocour lavish and vulgar displays of wealth fur the selfish gratlllcatlon of It own least desirable ambition. In older countries, rich men and tbelr sons hava u greater seose of their obligations to their com munity, ago, and social position: but In Amer ica the ambition nf young men Inheriting wealth would seem often to be to expend wick edly what their father havo foolishly hoarded. '1 he Idle rich form an anarrhlstlo class. Their selfishness prevent, the double benefit of publlo benefaction and private charity. The present tendency must bu checked." The Her. David (. Wylle of the 8cotch Pre, byterlan Church. Nln.tr. fifth street and Cen tral Park West, said: "Modern displays of ttealthat social functions are ln bad taste and havo a bad Influence. They naturally engender envy on the part of the poor, w no are In a bad condition In this city. More observance of tho " Unlden ItnU' would bctterthe condition: and there Is a temptation to carry to the ballot tbe question how to make the rich bear their true share of publlo burdens, or how to limit tbelr power of nmnsslnc wealth." Tbe Kev. John It. Shaw of the West End Pres byterian Church West 103th street, salds "The display of wealth In any manner so as to cans envy. Is contrary to the teaching of Christ- Hu wns a beneficiari us well as a benefactor, and Ills example Is not followed." Illshop Henry C. Potter Is not prepared to dls cum th. subject. Habbl II. I'. Mendesof the Scotch and Portu guese conrreeattnn consider great displays nf wealth In social function only to bo palliated by equal If not greater charities. ximoirs isto a avn.crz.LAn. A. Iarler nobbed In ItroadiTaT-Rlabt xsj ana Tlilah Itrakis by Ilia Fall. Charles Smith, who ha. worked a a porter at varlons hotels, lost his Job at an uptown house a few days ago. Having, therefore, plenty of leisure, he sought out some ot his friends around Twenty-third street yesterday after noon, determined to have as good a time a he could. Having money, he easily found his friends and the good time, and at 11 o'clock, with a smaller roll of bill tban he had taken from home, and a larger collection of drink inside, be started to walk dowutowc. He rambled on. Intending to visit a friend who, he says, live In East Third street, but as the liquor he had stowed away began to affect him he gradually lost his bearings, and did not come to a realizing ssnse of bl geographical position until he had reached the corner ofDrodwey and.'IIonatoa strscr. There bT w "recalled from hi dream by the yelling of the cable company' employee at tbe passenger. seeing tbat he wa out of th path be bad Intended to follow he approached n muscular looking man with a heavy black mustache, who stood on the corner, and asked him to point the way to Third street. Tbe big man said "Sure. I'll walk up there with you." And tbe two started up Uroadway. At (143 there Is a new building, not complete. A covered bridge ha been built over the side walk, and a board fence protect passer by from falling Into tbe cellar on the Inside. As the two men reached this bridge Hmlth' guide asked him wbether he had any money. "Money to burn." Smith replied, drawing a roll nf bills. $.11) In all. from hi. pocket.. Ther were then In tbe middle of the bridge, opposite the opening In the fence through which theworklngmen enter the building. Smith' gntd grabbed tbe half-Intoxicated man by tbe throat with ono hand, aim with tbe other snatched the hills, hmlth tried to scream, bufhe could not. HI raptor picked blm tin and slung him over his shoulder llku a hag of meal. He carried him Into tbe building, walking nn a pathway of planks, to tbe middle of the struc ture. When be reached this point lie lifted Smith, who was sobered by his fright, and threw blm down between the beams Into the subcellar. a distance nf thirty-five feet. Then the moscular man ran away. Smith began to groan, and Tlinraa Williams, the watchman, a feeble man well on In years, climbed slowly and painfully down to the sub cellar. He tried to get Smith to rise, but be could not, and at last he called three police men. They, too, tried to get Smith to get up and walk, but he told them that til leg was hurt, and they called an ambulance from St. Vincent' Hospital. Dr. Malonry cam with It. He found that Smith's right leg wa broken below the knee, and that hi right thigh wa broken. Smith wa. taken to the hosoltal. He said no. lived at 47H Third avenue. No trace ot his assailant could be found. IX fRIHOS, IlUT IXNOCKXT. Two lloy Brought Buck from Utiwlra CoaresaloH or Perjured ITIIaeae. David Williams nf 100 Madison street and John J.

The Cabinet wa told at Itssesilon of what had been done, and thtt action by that body wa decided on, A Indicated by the statement, th settlement agreed upon with the reorganisation committee marks the ending of th relations between th Federal Oovornment and th Union Pacltlo Company, It do not Interfere, however, with the right ot tho Government to Institute pro ceeding to protect Itself In nny phases of the litigation tbat may be discovered later. Tbe following statement wa glrsn to tho United Associated Prrstes by Attorney-General Harmon thl evening: "Upon the defeat of the Funding bill In th House, th President directed th Attorney. General to commence forecloauro proceeding against tbe Union Pacltlo Hallway Company, flrst making tho best arrangements obtainable for tbe proteotlonof the Government's Interests. Following tbe tine Indicated In hi last report, the Attorney-General began negotiation with th Iteorganlxatlon Committee On Thursday an agreement wa mad which will result In Im mediate step to foreclose. Tbe chief subject of tbe negotiations was the protection ot tbe Gov ernment against the risk of sacrifice of Its claim by a sale at a price which would leave nothing substantial after paying prior liens. This protection Is now assured by a guarantee that th Government shall reoelre on Its lien on the aided portion ot the Union Pa clflo and Kansas Paclflo lines. Including the sinking fund, not less than 143,734.000. Tba ale will be public, so tbat the Government will receive the benefit of any higher bid np to tbe f utt amount nt It claim, principal and Interest, The sum ot four and a halt million dollar cash was on Thursday deposited with the United States Trust Company of New York by Gen.

They are original bills and not cross bills In the pending nils. "Whether they will prooeed a Independent bill or to be ordered to Hand a cross bills ln the pending suit will be determined by th Jndge. but. In either event, tbe resnli will be practically the same, vlx-the sale of the prop erty under lb Government's lln a well a undsr that of the first mortgage. Th bill will be filed in the district of Iowa. Nebraska, Wyoming. Colorado, and Utah. Separate hill for th foreclosure of th llsn on tho Kansas Pacltlo are tn conn ot preparation. These will be filed la Missouri and Kama. "Th proposed arrangement wa submitted to the Government directors before It was closed. They all recommended It adoption. Their general opinion wa thu expressed i " ' The Government , cannot prudently longer defer the settlement of this matter. Tbe Union Pacltlo system ha already been mucn curtailed, and II revenue, have been permanently re duced. Ileorganlxatloui of allied and neighbor ing properties have either been accomplish. d or are In train for early consummation, and the breaking up nf the sntlr Union Paetflo system has been and I stsadlly progressing. It, there fore, seems to us Inexpedient. If not dangerous, to neglect this opportunity of realising th turn offered and thu expose lb Government to a continuous depreciation of Its security.' "It Is believed that there will be higher bids, but If not. an estimate shows that, credit ing amount already racelved from the com pany, tho Government will at leaat reallxe a um equivalent to the principal of the subsidy bonds, with Interest at about 'Mi per cent, from their Issue loth average dale of their matur ity, or about ,1.43 per cent, from date of Issue to Jan. 1. 18117. "The minimum of $43,734,000 guaranteed the Government I In cash, so that all relations with th property will terminate upon the con firmation of the foreclosure sale. The course to be pursued with respect to the Central Pailflc has not yet boeu determined." St. Louts, Jan. VS.

A despatch from Havana statoa that Captain-General Weylerhesordered the destruction within three days of alt th plantation and building In tho province of Havana that would be likely to prove useful to the Insurgents. The Madrid Chamber ot Commerce and other bodies her havo cabled to Gen. Weyler protest ing against the order, as It execution will re sult In tho destruction of nn enormous amount of valuable property without serving any prac tical purpose. The despatch adds that Gen. Weyler has re called Gen. Pin. the commander of the troops In the prnvlnoeof Santa Clara, apparently for the reason tbat he had held conference with landowner In that provlnco respecting Gen. Weyler'sorder Issued to prevent the obtaining of food by the Insurgents, Havana. Jan. 37. The Spanish brigade under Gen. Moling, which has been operating near Zarabanda and Guamo, provlnco of Matnnzas, ho defeated several parties of In surgents. In their flight many of the Insur gent threw themselves Into the Manabana Hirer, and fifteen were drowned and twenty four psrlsbed In tbe uiud. The troops lost two killed and seven wounded. Col. Tovarwltb hi brigade advanced up th left shore of the Cauto Itlver, after beating the rebels away from Cayamo, and found that the enemy, who had been entrenched In front of the town of Guamo, had disappeared. A pontoon barge had been blown up with dynamite, and tbe fort at Guamo had been unroofed by the projectile from th Insurgent cannon. The fort had been attacked by Callxto Garcia on the right shore of the river, and by Itabl nn the left shore. All of the charge mad by the Insur gents were repulsed by the garrison.

S3.-Tlie intense Interest In the selection of tho successor to Senator Hher rnatt brought nearly the whole membership ot the Seventy-second General Assembly to the re union to-day and banquet to-night, where Gov. Ilushnell presided nnd Chairman Mark A. Hanna, among others, responded to a toast. "I have merely come down for an ontlng," said Chairman Marcus A. Hanna this afternoon, " I havo nut bean tn the best of health for aoma time, aud took advantage of the kind Invitation tn Join In tho rouulon of member of tbo Gen eral Assembly, with nearly all of whom 1 am personally acquainted. Thore Is nothing politi cal In my visit." II I. not believed horo. however, that Chair man Hanna has come here solely for hi health. Gov. Ilushnell called upon Chairman Ilanna at his quarter In the Chittenden thl evening and tbe two chatted for a short time. A more significant fact was tbe confsrenco In the Governor' private offlco. William H. Day of Canton, a close friend of President-elect Mc Klnley, and Lleut.-Gov, Asa W. June were preseut. Mr. Day denied himself to newspaper men, and left the city soon after the conference. Gov. Jones would not discuss tho Senatorial question. Ex-Qor. Foster had engaged quarters, but tolegraphed to-day that he would not bo In the city. Newton Hathaway, ex-Speaker of tne House, who seemed to be managing Foster' boom for the Senate, at once left the city. No explanation I given for ex-Gov. Fos ter's absence, but ll Is currently believed tbat he wa either frlirhteurd oft from further participation In the contest or that some berth was offered him under the McKlntey Administration with which he Is more closely Identified tban with Mr. For. ker'a friends. The object In having Mr. Foster withdraw Is that tho strength ot tbe northern nnd northeastern parts of the State may not be divided between blm nnd Mr. Hanna. and that Mr. Ilanna mav contest for the Senatorshlp unhampered by any opposition in hi. territory. Late this afternoon State Chairman Kurtz, who was on the programme, sent word (bathe could uot be present at the banouet. The report comes directly from Chairman Kurtz, who Is very close to Gov. Ilushnell and renator Fornker. that Gov. Ilushnell will not appoint Mr. Hanna to tho Senate. From the same source, also, comes tbe statement that the Governor wtlt not call a special ssislon of th legislature. l-rom oilier sources it Is reported that Dush nell will nroposo to Hanna that Inasmuch as the ssorklucmen were appealed to In the late rampalgn to support the Hepubllcan ticket and responded nobly, and there are plenty of rich men In tbe Senate and no representative of the laboring classes, uno of the latter should be apoolntrd to the vacancy. To inert thla the Ilanna advo cate are using a statement made bv John Mcllryde, ex President of the United Mine Workers, in the effect that Hanna wa th fairest man In hi dealings with his employees that he ever knew. Interviews with members ot both Houses how them tn bo almost unanimously opposed to an xtra eesslon. It I also pretty clearly demonstrated that If an extra session should be called' the Mgl'lAluie, which was a Foraker bestv when elected might not now be controlled by tbat faction. This would endanger th ilctlon of a Foraker candidal" tor Hip Senate. Whether the Governor himself desires tn go tn the Senate la not known.

Itepresentattres of the Hepubllcan organization of the Slate of Now York have requested Mr. Depew to give his sanction to the movement. I'p to last night he had not given bis consent. The Hepubllcan who believe that Mr. Depew would make a great Ambassador to Great Urtlaln have not given up hop that he will allow tho Hepubllcan organization ef the State to Indoree blm for thl place. They recall that the office of Secretary of State wo offered to him by President Harrison after the resig nation of James G.

They say that hi appointment a Ambassador to Great Ilrltaln would improve confidence in American Institutions and In American finan cial concerns, and that he could be Instrumental to n very large extent In removing whatever hes itation and timidity now exist In Great Ilrltaln a to American financial matters. A. for hi long service to the Itenublu-an party, his work In the last campaign was recalled.

Tliw JIbH debates were moro In the nature of " rough and ' CfH tumble" scraps than discussions In the Senate HaLl usually are, aud were made all the more Inter- wLmw estlng because they were entirely uneipected. DmiH When the f-enatc met nobody knew that Sen- ' lummfl atorTnrpleot Indiana, whose habitual bitter- dssmsH ness of speech ha been well likened to th flail venomous his of a snake, would let loose the JH vials of his wrath on the heads of Senator Slier- flmsfll man. Chairman ot th Committee on foreign ,flH Helatlons and prcmler-to-be of tho McKlntey i&susfll Administration, and Mr. Olney, the Srcre- '.mH tnry ot State. Nobody kuew either that the 'Wflfl enerable Senator Hoar would, with a curious Ssfl mingling of Invective and scriptural quotations, flaafl chastise his Massachusetts constituents for fLI daring to urg biro to " hnstle" and base the 'SbH arbitration treaty ratified, and least of all. no- 9B body thought tbat u foreign Minister would fnfnwfl have the presumption to protest against the tjafl passago of tho pending Nlcaraugusn Canal bill, llmmmfl or that he and tho English Government, whom .sunnnl ho is supposed to represent, would be openly ex- Flsunfl posed and uttacked by Senator Morgan, the Sflfl leader of the Demooratlo minority on the 'asasfl Foreign Helatlons Committee and the most'rn- flflfl thuslastto advocate In tbe Senate of the con- IMmH structlon of tbe canal. ' 'fl All of these thing happened, however, and 2LD all In a comparatively brief apace ot time. Mr. ' vflfl Turple's appearance on tho scene, following bis ' J two days of epeccbmaklng In opposition to tbe jfl canal bill, was, perhaps, the greatest surprise of lfl alt, because bis remarks apparently stamp hint . f jflni as an advocate of the Cameron resolution reoog. i l-EI nixing Cuba's independence, when ho has all ''Mflanl along been supposed to be one of It most Tig HlSrQ orous opponents a a member of tbe Committee WlilHai ou Foreign Helatlons. It Is the general opinion. iv(flB however, that tho Indiana Senator has In this fiwaunfl dramatic and unexpected manner announced 3LH his Intention of calling up tbe Cameron resolu- jPrLH tlon on Monday more for the purpose of afford- SVVnB Inghlm an opportunity to resent tbe attitude g'ismmel ot Secretary Olney tn challenging tho right of vHafl Congress to take action with regard to tbe Fmsuufl recognition of a foreign republlo In opposition UnaH to tbe will of the Executive, tban with tbe hop ySnfl or expectation of securing favorable action InBefl upon tbe resolution Itself. BH Dut whatever may have been Mr. Turple's nJtLfll motive he succeeded In drawing from Senator asunnnnnnl Sherman what no one else baa been able to ob- eTTsuml tain heretofore, an explicit denial of the Stat- SiflE nient circulated In Washington, on high au- slV tborltt. that he and Secretary Olney have an EljEssf understanding that no action on the Cuban vjtlx question shall be taken, either by Congress or 3 MX tbe Executive, during the remaining few week eljwJS of tbe Cleveland Administration, As Senator .TlHsV Sherman has now stated expllollly that no such ) IJHU agreement exists, bis words must be accepted as trlt a statement of fact, but It Is none the CRAM less true thst the Cameron resolu iTtmC tlon cannot pas th Senate, and that Kit: tbe Cleveland Administration expect to vflSt take no action in the Cuban question. A Sena- iMjJflf tor Cameron, the author of the resolution, said t'jlH tbe other day, the sentiment of the Senators jH ba undergone a svonderful change since the fem; announcement that Secretary Sherman would $lrf be Secretary of State tn the McKlnley Cabinet, Jjini and as the Pennsylvania Senator bos abandoned JESsS his own resolution. It Is not likely that any one trtSwO else can put new life Into It. HISJMrf Senator Hoar of .Massachusetts is the last lif'Jl man In the Senate who until to-day would have TET' been thought capable of violating the strlot Si'irtW ruleot the Senate requiring the discussion of j'Tr'ii all treaty matter In executive session, and his "Kit daring outrage upon Senatorial tradition was lh,K?- listened to by his colleagues with the greatest ITSV 4 amazement. No phase of the arbitration treaty uivlKro can bo more deserving of secrecy than the (fxW3 propositions discussed boldly by Messrs. Hoar, ITyflii.3 Lodge. Allison, Cullom. Oray, Sewell, Hawlsy, JMM and other Senators to-day before crowded gal- u! Pra lerle. and It would, therefore, be more mockery Vf'Mit! for the Senate now to close the doors when the &', ''jjtj,.' treaty again comes up for consideration. Sena. v) ft' tor Stewart brought tho discussion to an end KKlifi' to-day, because when he began to pound his ryi ? desk and twist the llrltlih Lion's tall it was ll''ifi, feared that he might qulokly gel around te 'lvo!t?f? the crime of '73" nnd " tho gold bogs of Wall VWS8- street." W Tbe debate ended as suddenly as It began, 'P"?!il and this fact alono prevented Senator Hoar ?t"CVrt" from saying what ho Intended to say. Had op- j VJK ' portunlty been given blm he would have made "tlvli) the formal motion that the dlscusslnii ot the eLla $f treaty Itself shall take plaoo In open session. A t5''y u' strong effort Is being mane In the Senate to S')'4i'i'' bring about the adoption of Mr. Hill's motion. fii'Il' Mnny Senators think It would bo Idlo now, after !'JW' Secretary Olney has made tho treaty public be. iVriiiiv foro sending ll to the Senate, after the whole VmJuH'S world has been discussing It In public, and after y 5 ,( J,'f Jl It has been debated without authority on the i'fj'$vti9 open floor ot the United States Senate, tn close pffJtjj the doors and thus endeavor to conceal from 'i ii'Til the publlo the nature of the discussion that r lf'11 takes place within.
