Speech on Subject at Aix-la Chapelle. BASIS OF HIS EMPIRE ADVISES CATHOLICS AND PRO TESTANTS TO HARMONIZE. Work Together for the Upbuilding' cf the Morals of the People. ATX-I,A-CHAPEI.,LR. Prussia, Jim.- I.'*.? A striking speech i n religion was delivered by Emperor William nt the city hall here ' yesterday after his arrival from Bonn, ac- j companied by the empress and the crown ! prince. Frederick William. After obeerv- | Ine lhat the city w is the cradle of tliv Ger- ! man empire. Charlemagne, on whom Rome j eonftrred the dignity of a Roman Caesar, i having fixed the seat of g'VJrr.njrni n< re, the tmperor said: "What, however, his powerful personality was able to eff? ct. namely, combining the office of a Roman emperor with that of a Germanic kir.sr. was denied his successors, who. striving to uphold the world-wide im- ? perlum. forgot the cause of Germania, so j that little by little the German land and p op!e decaycd and th ?? Roman empire of German nationality fell to pieces. Now. however, another empire has come to lifi and its tasks are different from those ot ancient days. Confined in their outwar.' limits to the borders of their country, thj Germans have settled down to the work which h is fallen upon th-m. In these days the young empire is strengthening itself i and confidence in it is ever increasing. Supported by the Army. "The mighty German army constitutes the support of the peace of Europe. In con formity with the character of their rare the Germans have kept themselves within bounds, so far as the outside world is con cerned, in order to he wholly unfettered at home. Our tongue i-* passing beyond the seas. Every thought of science is nrst i turned to account by us, to be afterward adopted by other nations. Th!s is the world-wide imperii!m after which Germanic genius strives. "But it must not be forgotten that the empire was rooted in simplicity and fear of God. I look to all. priests and laymen, to heip me uphold religion .among the peo ple. in order that the German name may ; preserve its health and strength. This ap- ; plies equally to the two creeds?Catholic j and Protestant. *'It is with pride and joy that I am able to tell you that the pope said to my special ; amhassaeior who went to Home on the oc- S easion of the holy father's jubilee that he j had always kept a high opinion of the piety ; ?>f the Germans, and especially ot" that ?>f the German army. The pe>pe asked my i ambassador to t*ll hi-* sovereign that the I country in Europe where control, e>rder and discipline still prevailed, with respect for : authority and regard for the church, and ' where the church could live, was the Ger man ?inpiie . and for that the papal see was Indebted t?? th?- German emperor. Advice to the Churches. "This justifies me." continued Emperor "William, "in saying that our two great creeds must, while living side by side, keep In view th? ir one great aim?to upho'd and strengthen the f.ar of God and reverence : for religion. Whether we are moderns or whether we labor in this or that li?Id does ? n??t matte r at all. Me who eloes not found | his iif?- on religion Is a lost man. I re joice that I have plac-d my whole empire, my people and my army, as well as myself and my house beneath the cross and under the pre?tee*tion ?>f Him who said: 'Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my word ' shall not pass away.' Emperor William cone-lucled with calling f??r three cheers for Aix-Ia-t'hapelle*. NEW HEAR ADMIRALS. Careers of Captains Stirling and Wise, Just Nominated for Promotion.

In official correspondence which has taken place regarding the successful rais ing of the sunken army transport Wright, wrecked last November on the Philippine station, l.leut. Philip Andrews. I*. S. N., commanding the Wompatnck. speaks in high terms of ("apt. James W. Scott, mas ter of the Wright, and others, among them Chief Engineer David Harrover. The good work performed by Chief Engi neer Harrover. First Assistant Engineer Hawthorne and Second Assistant Engineer llaricw in assisting the raising of the trans port was recognized, and the officers named were commended for the energy and abili ty displayed in the face of many difficul ties. In speaking of their share of the work Ueut. Andrews says that Chief Engineer Harrover showed most marked ability and ingenuity in rigging up the wrecking pumps and supplying missing fittings and parts. Continuing. l.leut. Andrews' report savs: "He (Harrover) and Mr. Harlow also did a great deal of diving In making the engine room bulkheads tight, and the whole en gine room force did n great deal of excel lent work In a \ery cheerful and energetic manner." Gfn. Chaffee, commanding the forces in the Philippines, expressed his thanks for the testimonial given and commendation of the duties performed by the officers, and also the engine room force of the Wright. Engineer Harrover Is a Washingtonian. and the recognition of his abilities Is well re i elved by his large circle of friends in this city. The Wright, sunk last November, wag subsequently ralstil and taken to Manila, and afterward sent to Shanghai to be dock ed for repairs. APPOINTMENT OF RECEIVERS. Hearing Before Judge Hagner in Case of C. C. Duncanson. There was a spirited contest before Jus tice Hagner this morning over the appoint ment of receivers to take charge of the estate and business and papers of Charles C. Duncanson, bankrupt, pending the ap pointment of trustees. June 13 Mr. Dun canson filed his voluntary petition In bank ruptcy. His schedules showed his assets to be about $330,000, and his liabilities about $100,000, and he was adjudged a bankrupt and the matter referred to E. S. MoCal mont. referee In bankruptcy. The day fol lowing Mr. Duncanson, through his attor neys, filed a petition stating that It was necessary to appoint a receiver to collect the rents from his real estate, which amounted to aibout $500 per month, pending the selec tion of a trustee, and upon consideration of this petition the court appointed Thos. R. Jones, president of the National Safe Deposit, Savings and Trust Company, as re ceiver. At the hearing this morning it developed that Mr. Jones had declined to qualify as such receiver and that Mr. Duncanson had filed another petition alleging that Mr. Jones had been Induced not to accept the receivership and asking the court to direct the United States marshal of the District to collect the rents and take charge of his books and papers relating to his business and.estate. The ltrth instant Mrs. Ea*1 niond P. Green, who recently instituted suit against the bankrupt. filed a petition alleg ing that she .wag .an unsecured creditor of Mr. Duncanson to the extent of about $0,700, and enumerating other unsecured creditors and stsklug the ?ourt to appoint a receiver to take the place of Mr. Jones. After a full hearing of the matter and argument by" counsel, the court appointed the United States marshal to take charge of any part of t^ie bankrupt's estate in his possession, together with the books and pa pers relating to Ills business, and to collect the rents of the real estate until a meeting of the -creditors, which will b? held the 27th instant, at It# o'clock. Attorneys Chas. C. Cole and R. Golden l>onaldson repre-' sented Mr. Duncanson, and Messrs. R. Ross Perry' and Samuel Maddox the peti tioning creditors^ > FAVOBS POST CHECKS. Postmaster General Urges Establish ment of Postal Currency. Postmaster General Payne, to whom were referred the bills Introduced in the House by Representative Gardner and In the Sen ate by Senator McMillan providing for the establishment of a postal currency by means of "post checks," yesterday transmitted to Congress his views on the subject. He re fers to the appointment of a committee by the Secretary of the Treasury and himself, and states 'that this committee was divided In its opinion as to the advisability of the adoption of the post check. The Postmas ter General, in referring to the proposed post check system, says: "I think there Is a great need of some tana oi jyistal currency;, and that provided for in the bills under consideration is very simple, easily understood and would prove of incalculable convenience to the public if the bills could be enacted into law. 1 do not doubt, if Congress, in its wisdom, should pasa some such measure, the execu tive officers of the government would find a way to carry into effect its provisions. Innumerable remittances of small amounts are made through the mails dally, and up to this time the government has provided no convenient and inexpensive method to meet this demand other than the existing money order system. Millions of our people live more or less remote from any post office and a very large proportion of them are unable to buy a money order or a bank draft without Inconvenience. It is not un reasonable to expect from the government that it will provide an easy, convenient and safe method to transmit small sums, say, less than $2 in amount, without putting the sender to the inconvenience and expense which now obtains in compelling him to purchase a draft or post office money order, and the bills in question aim to provide such method." In view of objections raised by officials of the Treasury Department Postmaster Gen eral Payne requested the members of the committee representing the Post Office De partment to prepare a substitute bill which, while believed to be not as comprehensive or convenient as the post check bill, would yet furnish a measure of relief and would not Involve the Treasury Department In its enforcement. This bill he incloses with his letter. | In concluding Postmaster General Payne says: j "Hundreds of thousands of letters car rying small amounts in the form of ordinary currency or silver or postage | stamps, are transmitted every year I through the mails. These letters are temp tations to those handling them, as tt U easy to identify lrttrrs Inclosing currency. The postal cheeks* provided for in the pro posed bill would be much more easily ob tained and cheaper than the present money order, and, with the extension of the rural free delivery service to the remote parts of the country, would go far to provide a cheap, convenient and safe irnthcd to transmit small amounts through the malls, and would be available to the money-ord**r offices or the banks of the country." Grievances of Navy Yard Ken. A committee headed by Representative Maynard, Republican National Committee man George E. Bowden, Mr. Charles T. Bland, member of the Virginia legislature from Portsmouth, and Gen. Agnew. and rep resenting the painters employed at the Norfolk navy yard, called upon Secretary Moody at the Navy Department yesterday and spent over an hour in setting out to the Secretary the grievances of the men. The painters' complaint Is In regard to the system of rating at the yard. They de clare that men who are rated as second class are required to do work which should belong to a painter of the first class with a discrepancy in pay. Secretary Moody lis tened attentively to what the committee had to say and assured Its members In a general way that the regulations concern ing the rating of navy yard laborers should be strictly adhered to. and that there would be no digression from them in the case of the Norfolk yard. The Log*n Sails for 'Frisco. Quartermaster 'General Ludlngton is in formed that the transport Logan left Naga saki yesterday for San Francisco with the tith and 17th regiments of Infantry.
