homes F Qilray receiver of tho
Fidelity Funding Company 116 Broadway
Mid yesterday that bo was Impatient
for np interview with P Jl Kelran who
KM In control of the company up to the
time li went under month ago tie had
not seen Mr Keirau since bit appoint
ment IU receiver and even moro Im
portant In his estimation had not
ten account books which were kept
ry the missing offlcer and which Mr
S Oilroy believes may tend to explain why
the liabilities or tha company seem t
he At least 4600000 and theassets an
unknown quantity
It was not only on his official account
that he wanted I Information from Mr
Kelran and the books Mr Oilroy went
on to say The officers of Borne fifty or
nxty Catholic churches seminaries and
other Catholio institutions large number
of Catholic clergymen and an occasional
layman such aa Leelio M Shaw formerly
Secretary of the Treasury had quite as
much reason to be concerned
Rome of the institutional were appar
ently Involved to the extent of many
thousands of dollars oneof them to the I
extent of many hundreds of thousands I
nf dollars the Catholic clergymen as
S individuals had claims or liabilities that
could not be established without Mr
Kelrans assistance and Mr Shaw was
x creditor to the extent of 00000 and had
also become a stockholder
In explanation Balnbrldge Colby of
olby 4 Ooldbeck attorneys for Mr
Kelran in a statement late last night jn
fstd that there was no mystery what
ever it to the whereabouts of Mr Kelran II
HU client he said had been touring tho
country arranging matters with the
Catholic institutions with which he had
done business Mr Colby denied that
there were any irregularities in the con
duct of the companys business by Mr
Keiran and concluded by saying that Mr
Kelran will soon ben the city
When the company failed it was well
> flown that its business was principally
with Catholic institutions and It was to
alholio clergymen that Mr Kelran was
not successful selling stock That he
hid involved these Institutions and in
dividuals very heavily Mr Oilroy ex
iine l did not come out until as ex
UauttUe an examination into the cora
t anys affairs aa was possible without Mr
Keirane aMiatanoo had been made
Mr Gilroy bad had repeated promise
he said of the rcoorcryof the missing
books ondon this Account kept the cir
cumstances Quiet until yesterday
Keiransf method of operation Mr
Oilrpy said f waajvitantially as follows
S Hoeought outct1I 1JqJnstl tlona which
wanted money for Improvements or ad
ditions to bulldlngfl and offered to lend
them money on notes secured by mort
gages on their al estate As an addi
tonal consideration the officers of the
mortgagor society tooU out life insurance
policies in the names of five or six persona
I approved by Mr Keiran The mortgages
were ordinarily for twenty years And the
life Insurance policies ordinarily of the
twenty year endowment kind the Idea
helg that the policies would mature
rnnenientiy with the mortages and pro
ide sufficient funds to pay tho mortgages
11 The Fidelity Funding Company
did not write the Insurance but acted as
an insurance broker and placed it either
with the Reliance Life Insurance Com
pany of PitUburg or the Security IIfo
Insurance Company of Chicago The
amount of the polioy was ordinarily 75
r < r cent of the amount of the loan The
mortgagor paid at the rate of nearly D
IT cent In combined interest on the
mortgage and premium on tbe insurance
It developed alter the receivership
Mr Gilroy said that Mr Keiran controlled
I hrpe construction companies which
hough not owned by the Funding Com
rany were connected with it In the sense
hat they occupied the same or adjoining
offices and worked together with Mr
Keiran in charge of the business of all
1he e companies were the Columbia
t instruction Company the Federal Con
struction Company and McBrides Studios
The last named companys specialty was
work on church decoration Another
company in the same suite was the Wes
ern Illinois and Iowa Railroad Company
which waa a trolley proposition con I
trolled by Mr Kelran
In the course of construction work on
he various Institutions it was the custom I
nf the company to secure short termjnotes
from the mortgagors to provide funds for
the completion of the work These notes
Mr Gilroy said wore turned over to one
rt the construction companies for
hypothecation or were discounted by tbe
Funding company
The manner in which many of the church
nititutions became heavily involved Mr
Hilroy said came in right here On the I
maturity the note in many case the
company secured renewal but neglected
to take up the outstanding notes and some
of the institution gave renewal after
renewal without securing any of their
preioua notes
Thus the books and the protest of notes
ndicate that St Marys Academy at
auvoo 111 gave to Kelran notes aggre
eating JlWOOOO on two mortgages total

alU cost 1200000
The decision of the society to erect
another fine building Is seemingly antag
onistic t tbe declaration attributed t
Mrs Mary Baker G Eddybut a short
time ago against further outlays on ex
pensive church buildings Whether for
this reason or for another the meeting
yesterday afternoon lasted from 4 oclock
until well toward 7 and there was muph
dl qnTe meeting was closed to
the public
After it was over a typewritten state
ment containing little more than the bare
decision t build was given out The
statement characterized the lit selected
aa one of the most valuable pieces Of
property on Riverside Drive and because
of Its accessibility ii an Ideal location
for a church
Tho statement goes on to explain the
reasons for erecting another building
The Ninetysixth street church it
says was completed five years ago
but the growth of the oonffrer tion has
been so rapid that within three years
It became crowded and the building
of a new church is now a necessity The
new church will be a branch of the Boston

marched and sang and crowds colleted
along the sidewalk
I was the highways and hedges parade
in connection with the revival services
which have been going on for the Us
week in the church Although before
now people from the Episcopal and other
churches have gone out into the street
and distributed tracts and attempted to
get those whom they met to come into the
meeting1 last nights affair is supposed
t b the first time that a church In New
York has approached quite BO nearly th
methods of the Salvation Army Dr
Dawson who is conducting the revival
meeting has done the name thing In other
The parade was begun after the regular
meeting At the head marched a man
bearing a large white cross illuminated
by incandescent lights those at the end
of the arms being red This man wu
flanked on either side by men carrying
the batteries which ran the lights and
behind him was the band followed by
Dr Dawson the Rev Dr Hugh Birck

clergy of tho church the Rev E F WIN
cox tho Rev J Godfrey Wilson the
Rev M H Blrckhead brother of the
rector ard tho Rev T Bend Holland
Then came various ofllcere of the church
and the seventy choir boys with the
entire congregation of the earlier service
making up the bulk of the procession
The clergy did not wear their surplices
nor did the choir boys
The marchers four abreast went
through Sixteenth street to Union Square
circled the square passed through Four
teenth street to Second aonue and up to
Sixteenth street and back to the church
All along the line their coming attracted
good crowds mOt of whom merely gaped
in astonishment and went on about their
usual ways Some however joined the
marchers and more turned and followed
on the sidewalk Perhaps 160 or 200 men
and women who had not been at the earlier
meeting were in the church when a mal
meeting which had been advertised by
cards handed out by young men who
accompanied the panders began
The incidents of the march wore not
greatly varied At one point a pan
handler tried to collect from the paraders
but after being tu e down a few times
he gave it up and disappeared in the
Mr Dawson is a short stocky man
with a full face long black hair and tiny
black mustache and wears a flowing
black tie He is a persuader in voice and
manner and his talk at tho mass meeting
of wanderers
was waderors
Have you got anything out of your
wandering he asked Have you gained
anything b IU I am here to ask you
to come back to the fold Jesus is waiting
for you
After his appeal he asked those who
wished odvice or counsel to follow him
Into the vestry room where a floors or
more soon gathered These Mr Dawson
said later were mainly people who once
had gone to church but who had wandered
away Several among them did not have
a place to sleep or anything < o eat and
these were Bent to the vestry house next
door where their needs in these par
ticulars were met
Mr Dawson said that his system was no
novelty in London and he also had used
it successfully in Winnipeg He said
lost nights results he considered very
good particularly for the first trial in
this city Some time the latter part of
the week the experiment will be repeated

Father Parclow Uoubti If God Sends An

The Rev William OBrien Pardow 8 J
who Is giving a series of talks on Mondays
at the Catholic Club under the allspices
of the Daughters of the Faith devoted
most of the hour allotted to him yester
day afternoon to a discussion of spiritual
He surprised some persona by admitting
that he believed tha fortunately or
unfortunately many Individuals had
received communications from the spirit
The investigations of the Society for
Psychical Research both In this country
and In Great Britain left no room for
doubt on the mater But while be did
not attempt to cast any doubt upon the
authenticity of many of the socalled
spirit manifestations Father Pardow
did not seem to think that a study of them
would be at all advantageous to the aver
age layman Ho was especially emphatic
in declaring that none of them had any
religious significance
God does not he said aend legions
of his angels down to earth to give a retlned
vaudeville show Neither there any reason
son to believe tlisthe various rapplngv
whisperings materializations and j
terious writings that have been shown
to b not the result of deliberate fraud
on the part of professional mediums
should be attributed to the spirits of the
dead In my opinion they are to b traced
directly to the machination of the evil
one who employs his boats of fallen
for confusion of humanity
an eels the Cnulon lumaniy
The speaker enjoined all good Catholics
to atop worrying and speculating about
these things which he seemed t think
were Inimical the cause of religion
Since the Church had not Bet upon the
doctrines or manifestations of spiritism
the seal of her official approval it was
disloyal for Catholics to Imagine that they
could have any value except from the
point of mere amusement or of scientific
research Evon with one of these ends
In view lA added it was probably unwise
to attempt to establish communication
with the powers of darkness

had been so thoroughly demonstrated in
foreign countries that its efficacy was
well established and the board recom

adopted in the United States Army At
theolose of their session SurgeonGeneral

this statement
The board la convinced of the useful
ness and the harmlessness of antityphoid

the practice of voluntary vaccination b
introduced in the army of the United
States as a practicable means of diminish

Capt Russell sid medical officers of
the British army inoculated onehalf of

while the other half of the regiment
Stationed at the same post were not

while the usual percentage of tie dis

During the Boer war the British medical
authorities vaccinated many thousand

The board will discuss the details or
the Introduction of the inoculation method
in the United States Any The dis

Observations will b made to determine
the length of Immunity in an effort to
decide when the vaccination will have to

sider where the inoculation method will
b first introduced I is probable that
it will be first adopted at some army posts
