Reported Reinstatement of Prof. Gray's J
Caveat? What Commissioner Mont- j
icomery Says.
There is much excitement in telephone cir- v
cles to-day over the report that Prof. Gray's ^
original application for telephone patent has
been reiD-tated at the Patent office. There- ?
ported actiou is not equivalent to issuing a P
patent to Prol. Gray, but it reopens the c.ise in
the Patent office independently ol the suits in d
the courts, and the Pan-Electric people con- s
lldently predict that a decision luvorable to 1'
Prot Gray will be had in the department belore
the matter is settled in the courts. 11
A Star reporter asked Commissioner Mont- v
gomery concerning this rumor, and he said: ,,
"fhe tiling ot applications for patents and of v
caveats iu this olfice belongs to the secret tl
archives, and I would have no right to divulge u
anything that may be recorded in this way. I
can say, however, that I have heard nothing ol
any applicatiou or caveat ol Gray lor several c
months past." ?,

Gen. Sickles lias written a letter in reply to i
tie recently published letter of Gen. Meade. I
le says it was Gen. Meade and not Gen. Sickles 1
'lio "'"lie an error of judgment at the battle of
lettysburg. The controversy. Gen. Sickles i
tiys, is not betweeu Gen. Meade and himself
uly, but that nearly all the corps commanders
ispu ted the accuracy of Meade's report of the

"Immediately after Gen. Meade's report of !

Major (itu. Siocum, commanding the rijfht

luade, arraigns him for a series of inaccurales,
to use the mildest phrase in Gen. Meade's
eport of Gettysburg, by which great injustice
l as done to Gen. Siocum and tne corps at his .
onimund. Alter reciting so much of Geu.
leade s report as relates to the operation of his
Siocum s; command, Geu. Siocum said: 'Yet i

liese complaints will be understood when I

- this society as against others of tne same kind,
and to employ the remedies ordered or advised
in said Instruct lous.'
1 "Your lordship will recall that In my consulk
tat Ion of the 5th of October, 188:1, I made no
representation of my owu upon the principles
of the organization and the rules of the society,
but I purely aud simply transmitted to the
holy see an authentic printed eopy ol It* c?nstliution,
with a prayer to examine it all the
more carefully, because this society seecied to
embrace all branches of work and workers,
which, moreover, its name clearly indicated.
| Tho printed appeal to the holy see has been
long invoked to create the belief that, pending
the tinal decision, persons could continue to
enroll themselves or to remain in the society,
. provided always that they were siueerely disposed
to obey the tinal sentence upon the aj>peal.
If that appeal had been really made, it is
impossible that the sacred office should not
| have been apprised of it, because this matter
belongs to its exclusive resort. Consequently,
the decision of the 27th of June, communicated
to me by his eminence, Cardinal Slmeoni, is m
reply to it. The original sentence has been
confirmed in its form aud tenor. Whereas in
this last decision, as in the tlrst, the holy office
recommends the bishops to proceed against the
society in the manner prescribed in its instructions
of the 10th ol May, 1884, I cannot
see that there can any longer be any doubt as
to the rule to be followed by Catholics of the
whole world over wboui the jurisdiction ol that
sacred congregation extends.
"Having discharged my duty in conveying to
your lordship this decision of the holy see, I
beg you to accept assurances oi my devotion.
(Signed) JC. A. Cak. Taschekeau,
Archbishop of (Quebec."
Does This Apply to the United States?
Cardinal Gibbons was seen at Cape May last
night by a correspondent of the Baltimore Sun.
Ho had received no letter Iroiu Rome in reference
to the Knights of Labor.
The Baltimore America n of to-day says: Cardinal
Gibbons is now at Cape May. Father Lee
was shown the above dispatch last evening, and
said that he did not think it was intended as a
ban upon the Knlgnts of Labor as the order exist
here. Cardinal Gibbons iias on several
occasions stated that the Knights of Labor,as he
understood the order, alter a careiui study of
its aims, was not antagonistic to the charch.
He looked ujhju it as au organization intended
to elevate the condition oi the laboring uian,
and to advance his interests by arbitration and
otber peaceful methods. He said that as long
as it maintained its present position it would
have the encouragement of Hie Catholic church
and his best wishes for its success. On several
different occasions he has spoken in this strain,
notably at the laying ol tne corner stone oi a
church lu South Baltimore a lew months ago.
The conditions under which the Cauadiau appeal
were made to Uome was peculiar, lucre
the order bud cebelied against a denunciation
by.jnMpr^ikjhepeau. wno frequently spoke
ugtUMSMStf-^Ut* 'Sits inter Irom Home, the vatical
endorses the position taken by the cardinal,
but it is on purely a local issue, aud in no
way applies to theorderol the Knights of Labor
in the United .States. The position taken by
Cardinal Gibbons has also been taken by a
number of Catholic archbishops and bishops in
all parts of the country. Grand Master Workman
Powderly of the Knights of Labor is a
Arcnbishop Helss, ot Wisconsin, in an interview
with regard to the edict of the pope against
the Knights oi Labor, announces by Cardinal
Taschereau at (Quebec, says he has not h<*ard
any thing in regard to it. In case a similar edict
should be issued ior the United JSiates, it would
be made public by Cardinal Gibbons at Baltimore.
Views of a Prominent Catholic Clergy
man ol this City.
he thinks the decision of the holt see
applies only to canada.
A Stak reporter called upon a prominent
Catholic clcgyman to-day, who read in the
papers the pope's decision in regard to the
Knights of Labor organization. He said:
"There has been uothiug addressed to any ol
our bislpips (.of the United States) yet that 1 am
aware of, and 1 think I would know if there
was anything of that kind." He agrees with
the archbishop of Milwaukee in the opinion
that the decision applies only to the labor
organization of Canada und does not include
this country. He bad understood that there
was some difference between the ;iabor organizations
of the Dominion and the United Stales,
but had not examined the respective constitutions
aud therefore could not speak positively.
He said the church recognizes the right
of laboring people to organize lor their protection;
that It is periectly legitimate lor them
to do so, aud the church has no objection, provided
the organization does not have any of
those leaturus of secrecy which come under
the bau of the church: that their right to a
secrecy which would preserve to themselves
the business allairs oi the organization
is legitimate, provided there is nothing in the
the obligations which would come between the
individual aud his spiritual adviser. s$o
lar as ne knew there was nothing obnoxious
in the organizations of the laboring people oi
this country and he was of the impression that
there would be no interiereuce by the church,
lie said the tield of work ot the Catholic church
in this couutrv is particularly among the poor
people?the iaboriug people?and where they
unite to protect their interests and courine
themselves to the bounds of law and couinionsense
aud fairuess, the church was inclined to
approve. He also spoke ol the great difference
between the coudition of Iaboriug people in
Europe, especially ou the coutineut, and those
of this country, aud said that is a matter which
the church authorities at Rome take into consideration
in dealing with such questions as
that uuder consideration. The poor people of
the continent do not enjoy the liberty which is
the privilege of every man of the United states,
and the church must be more vigilant to protect
them. He spoke of the French Canadians
as a people requiring the watchful care ol the
church iu order to shield them, and suggested
that the decision in regard to labor orgaui zations
might be deemed essential there without
having any reference to the United States. He
further said that he bad been very much gratified
at the moderation and good sense that had,
as a rule, governed the laboringpeople ol this
country in their controversies. He said the
church had not yet found anything objectionable
in the labor organizations of the union, aud
so far as he knew it had never been suggested
that auy of these organizations came under
the ban of the church.
what a prominent washington knight op
labor says?the order made up mostly
of catholics!.
Paul T. Bowen, who is prominent among the
Knights of Labor here, was questioned by a
Star reporter to-day as to the probable effect
of the decree of the Pope against the Knights.
He said be did not know whether It was intended
to apply to the United States as well as
Canada, but he presumed it did, as tnere was
no difference in the constitution of the order in
the two countries. The Knights in the United
States, he said, had not paid any attention to
the controversy in Canada, as they did not contemplate
auv result that would effect them.
He says the K nigh ts are made up largely of
Catholics. The priests have, he says, been
friendly to the order. Before joining the order
Catholics generally consulted their priests, and
were informed that there would be no objection
to the organization. It would be a serious
thing U an effort were made to Joree Catholics
to leave the order, And the priests and bishops
and the cardidal would probably present the
case to the Holy See in a different way, with
the view ol having some modification of the
order made. Many of the officer* of the Knights,
he says, are Catholics.

Oood Reasons Why it Should Be mnin.
tained as a Water way.
From the Baltimore Suu, August 13th.
The object had in view by the members of the
convention called to meet yesterday in Cumberland
was to insure the perpetuity of the
Chesapeake and Ohio Canal as a water-way?
an object iu which every consumer, shipper
and exporter ol cheap bituminous coal in
Maryland and the Atlantic coast cities has a
practical iuterest. As long as the canal Is
open as a public highway u|?on which auy
one that chooses may transport coal, with or
without the payment of toil, competition will
operate to prevent its rival, the Baltimore and
Ohio, from putting freight rates on coal too hiirh
and lrom acquiring, in conjunction with the
Pennsylvania company and the bituminous
coal pool, absolute control of the coal supnlv
I he advantage of cheap fuel lor Kteani engines
is one that every industrial interest ol
the state will appreciate. This advantage
our manufacturers and ship-owners
enjoy at present, without caring perhaps,
to trace its history. Few of them probably
are aware that it Is to the disposition ot
the Baltimore aud Ohio to take business from
the Chesapeake aud Ohio Canal company aud
deprive it of revenues that thev owe tne existing
rates. The rapidity with which the existing
raiiroad rate would double ..r tr.-ble its.-it u
the canal should ever be closed or tail under
railroad control would reveal to the indifferent
shipper, when loo late, its present value i.. his
buhiuCNb aiiti llic object ot Ui6 railroad in iiiukIns
rates so low. The canal, though much
abused and little employed, operates bv its
presence. Since its facilities cannot be monopolized,
it is a continual obstacle whiin it lasts
to the establishment of excessive taritls
Should the Baltimore and Ohio double its rabs
on coal the canal would get business and prosper.
1 hat it does not at present pros|ier is due
to the fact that it is conferring that factor of
prosperity, competitive rates, ou others And
this it does, though it should n ?t earrv s.n
ounce oi coal, by its nieuace ol cotnpt ti ti.m, m
case its rivals should put up prices. In the al?Sencc
of effective railroad laws prohihiting excessive
charges aud dihcrim: nations, ininmniiv
lrom such disadvantages is secured to the puijlicoQly
by the lawoi competiiion. Wiwi tne
canal's services to the public are worth is not
tiierelore adequately indicated by the pr..iit
and ioss item ol"its annual re|?oris. in js?a
the canal carried TOT.ititi toiisoi coal; in
but o7fc>,:{52 tons.
But it would be a superficial view of the situation
to suppose the utility ol the canal to the
general public was measured in either year bv
the number oi tons carried. Stock and bondholders
have a right, no ?ioubt, to .eel disgusted
when net earnings vanish, but the maiiuiaciuriug,
snipping and exporting interests ot the
stale are benefitted ail the same by the constant
threat ot competition which the cam!
flourishes in the lace ot the railroads. ?o convinced
were the people ol New York citv and
stale of the value ot the Krie canal t?> thei'u as i
regulator ol railroad charges that they made the
canal tree. They collect no toils and pav tit,expenses
of keeping the camU in repair not
caring whether a bushel of grain iH. r vear i?
carried through it, but looking to the vast
saving on railroad ireight bills that the existence
of the canal secures to them.
The Cumberland convention has been impressed
with this example, and will send del.gates
lo the national canal convention to In*
held at Syracuse on the 2oth ol the present
month "to fiud out how the New Yorkers did
it." This is a very proper subject lor investigation.
1 hey are probably aware, however, that
the posit tou and claims of the Chesapeake and
Ohio and Krie canals respectively uik.ii public
support are not precisely identical. Whether
they are sufficiently alike to demand like treatment
is a question that must remain lor a louir
time open to discussion. It is not, at any rate
a question to be decided oil-hand. The public
iuterest in preserving the independent existence
ot the canal as an active or passive competitor
of the railroads is undeniably verv
great Whether it is sufficiently great to justify
shouldering its bonded debt and operating
expenses is a question which is yet to be
threshed out. The items of advantage and disadvantage
on either side must be collated and
thoroughly studied belore eveu a tentative
opinion on the matter cau be formed.
a Secret Marriage.
experiences of aldebxak fenneb's daughter,
jeusey city.
Emma Fenner, daughter of Capt. John Fenner,
a Jersey City alderman, wnile home from
boarding school three months ago,'was secretly
married to a Mr. Smith, sou of a plumber of
that place. He had asked Capt. Fenner lor his
daughter's hand, but was told that she was too
young and that he would be obliged to wait
three years. Mr. Smith asked lor an assurance
that he could have her then, but this was not
given him. Shortly afterward .Smith acted as
an escort to M iss Feuuer in a party gotten up
to see a ball game, aud they quieUy went off
and were married before the game was ended.
Miss Fenner has since been visiting friends at
Oohoes, N. Y.
The young bridegroom arrived at that place
on Wednesday last, aud endeavored to j*srsuade
his wile to go back to Jersey Clly aud
announce the fact of their marriage. This she
declined to do, but It was Anally arranged that
he should go alone and "break the ice. ' sm 11 h
returned to Jersey City aud told the girl's
parents, but had to get out very lively, as Capt.
Feuner slated that he would have nothing u>
do with either of them. Smith returned to
Oohoes Saturday, reported hU ill success and
informed his bride that his lather had an open
bouse tor them. Both left for Jersey City as
happy as ever. The affair has created a sensation
among her Iriends.
