Speech on Subject at Aix-la Chapelle. BASIS OF HIS EMPIRE ADVISES CATHOLICS AND PRO TESTANTS TO HARMONIZE. Work Together for the Upbuilding ci the Mcrals of the People. AIX-I..A-CHAPEL/LK, Prussia. June- 2 ?.? A striking speech cn religion was rlfllvtred by Kmprror William nt the city hall here ' yesterday after his arrival from P.onn. ac companied by the empress anil the crown ! prince. Frederick William. After obeerv- 1 Ins that the city was the cradle of tlw Ger man empire, < "harlemagne, on whom Rome ? conferred the dignity of a Roman Caesar, having fixed the seat of gJVf rr.nje ni n< re. the t mperor salei: "What, however, his powerful personality was able to effect. namely, combining the office of a Roman emperor with that of a Germanic kir.sr. was denied his s.iccossors, who. striving to uphold the world-wide im perium, forgot the cause of Germania, so that little by little the German land and j p. op!e dtcay.d and the Roman emp're of German nationality fell to pieces. Now. ! however, another empire- his come to lif< and Its tasks are eiifterent from those ot | ancient days. Confined in their out ware' limits to the borders of their country, th-j [ Germans have settled down to the work which h is fallen upon tin in. In these days j the young empire is strengthening itself ! and confidence in it is ever increasing. Supported by the Army. "The mighty German army constitutes the support of the peace (if Europe. In con formity with the character of their race j the Germans have kept themselves within j bounds, so far as the outside world is con cerned. in order to be wholly unfettered at ! home. Our tongue is passing beyond the ? seas. Every thought of science is tirst ! turned to account by us, to be afterward adopted by other nations. This is the world-wide lmperium after which Germanic genius strives. "But it must not be forgotten that the j empire was rooted in simplicity and fear I of God. 1 look to all. priests and laymen, ! to help me uphold religion among the peo ple. in order that the German name may : preserve its health and strength. This ap- J 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 ambassador who went to Rome on the or- j casion of the holy father's jubilee that lie j had always kept a high opinion of the piety i of the Germans, and especially of that of the German army. The pope asked my , ambassador to t? 11 hi* sovereign that the j country in Europe where control, order and discipline still prevailed, with respect for : authority and regard for the church, and 1 where the church could live, was the Ger Rian ? inpire. and for that the papal see was Indebted to the German emperor. Advice to the Churches. "This justifies ir.e." continued Emperor ?William, "in saying that our two great creeds must, while living side by sieie. keep In vie %v their one great aim to upho'd and strengthen the* f. ar of God anel reverence fi r religion. Wla ther we are moderns or whether we iabor in this or that lield eloes ' not matte r at all. lie who eloes not found , his life on religion Is a lost m>n. I re joice that I have plac-d my whole empire. m> people and my army, as well as myself anel my house beneath the cross and under the preiteetiein e>f Him who said: 'Heaven B::d earth shall pass away, but my word j shall ne>t pass away.' " Emperor William e-on< ludeel with calling f.-r three cheers for Aix-la-Chapelle. NEW REAR ADMIRALS. Caleers 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.ieut. Philip Andrews, I". S. N., commanding the Wompatuck, speaks in high terms of ('apt. James AY. 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 Haricw 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 Eieut. Andrews says that Chief Engineer Harrover showed most marked ability and ingenuity In rigging up the wrecking pumps and supplying missing fittings and I>arts. Continuing, l.leut. Andrews' report says: "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 a great deal of excel lent work in a very cheerful and energetic manner." Gen. 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 Wushingtonian. and the recognition of his abilities is well re ceived by his large circle of friends In this city. The Wright, sunk last November, was subsequently ralstd and taken to Manila, and afterward sent to Shanghai to be dock id 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 $ UK),000, and he was adjudged a bankrupt and the matter referred to E. 8. MoCal mont, referee In bankruptcy. The day fol lowing Mr. Duncanson, through his attor neys. filed a petit-Ion stating that It was necessary to appoint a receiver to collect the rtnts from his real estate, which amounted to about $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. Jortes had been induced not to accept the receivership and asking the court to direct the United States marshal of the District I to collect the rents and take charge of his I books and papers relating to his business and .estate. Th? lirt.h Instant Mrs. Ea*> mond P. Green, who recently Instituted suit against the ba.nk.rypt, (ile<l a petition alleg ing that she .wag an unsn uml creditor of Mr. Duncanson to the extent of about $0,700. and "ftiunaerating other unsecured creditors and asking the i:ourt to appoint a receiver to take the place of Mr. Jones. After a ftTH hearing of the matter and argument by' counsel, the court appointed the United States marshal to take charge of any part of the 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 1(# o'clock. Attorneys Chas. C. Cole and R. Golden Donaldson repre sented Mr. Duncanson, and Messrs. R. Ross Perry' and Samuel Maddox the peti tioning creditors. FAVORS POST CHECKS. Postmaster Qeneral 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 /orno Of postal 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. I do not doubt, if Congress, in its wisdom, should pass 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 t- 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: "Hundreds of thousands of letters car rying small amounts in the form of ordinary currency or silver or postage stamps, are transmitted every year through the malls. These letters are temp tations to those handling them, as it Is easy to identify letters inclosing currer.vy. The postal check? 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 method to transmit small amounts through the malls, and would be available to the money-order offices or the banks of the countrj." Grievances of Navy Yard Men. A committee headed by Representative Maynard, Republican National Committee man George E. Bowden, tor. 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 Logan Sails for 'Frisco. Quartermaster 'General Ludington is in formed that the transport Logan left Naga saki yesterday for San Francisco with the 6th and 17th regiments of Infantry. Naval Orders. Admiral E. M.
