Tragic Speech of Dominguez to the Senate Is Re ceived Here. WAS ASSASSINATED SOON AFTER ATTACKING HUERTA Called Him "Impostor, Wicked, Un fit. Sanguinary and Traitor." and Urged Deposition. A most dramatic chapter in the history of the recent troubles in Mexico was re vealed last night, when, for the first time, a full account of the events sur rounding the delivery of a speech in the Mexican senate by Senator Belisario Dominguez attacking Gen. Huerta was receiveu in Washington by friends of the former here. The text of the speech, which was received here last night, has never been published before, having been suppressed in Mexico City. It was the delivery of this speech which led to the arrest and killing of Senator Dominguez, and this led to an inquiry into his death by the Mexican chamber of deputies which resulted directly in'the imprisonment of 110 of the deputies and the dissolution of the congress, followed by the establishment of Huerta as dic tator. Therefore the speech has a direct bearing on more recent events. Dead Body Found in Suburb. Shortly after delivering the speech Sen ator Dominguez went to the Hotel Jar din in Mexico City, and was arrested there by two detectives and told that he was to be taken to the penitentiary. These facts, according to friends of the dead senator here, are matters of rec ord at the State Department here. Shortly afterward his dead body was found near Coyoacan, a suburb of Mex ico City. Senator jjominguez's speech, demand ing the overthrow of liuerta, was, in part, as follows: "Senators: "You all have heard with great inter est the message presented to the con gress of the union the 16th of Septem ber by Mr. V. Huerta. The heap of un truths contained hi said document, hon orable senators, has filled you with in dignation, without any doubt, as it has tilled me with the same. Whom does he pretend to deceive, gentlemen? The con gress of the union? No. gentlemen. AH members of tills body are learned per sons, versed in the science of politics, well acquainted with events in the repub lic, and who could not be deceived in these matters. "Does he pretend to deceive the Mexi can people, that noble fatherland that confiding in your history has placed in your keeping her dearest interests? What must be done now by the national -epresentation? Be true to the confidence with which the country has honored it: tell It the truth and not allow it to fall Into the abyss that opens before it. "The truth Is this: State of Country Worse. "During the rule of Mr. V. Huerta. not only has nothing been done toward the pacification of the republic, but the present state of the country is infinitely worse than before. The revolution has spread nearly through all the states of the republic; many nations, formerly friendly to Mexico, have refused to recognise the present government as legal; our currency is depreciated in foreign countries: our national credit Is all but ruined. The press of the whole country is either gagged or cowardly sold to the government, and it Is systematically hidinp the truth; our fields are deserted and many of our towns razed to the ground. "Lastly, our unfortunate country is ibout to be enveloped by hunger and starvation and misery in all its forms through the whole length and breadth of the land. To wlikt may we attribute tills state of things? "First and before every thing else, to the fact that the Mexican people cannot put up with the idea of having Mr. V. lluerta as president of the republic?that soldier who took hold of the powers of the government, by treason, and whose first act on assuming the presidency was to assassinate in a cowardly manner the president and vice president who had been anointed by the popular vote: that same president who had honored Mr. V. Huerta with promotions and honors and dis tinction and the same to whom Mr. V. Huerta had publicly sworn unswerving loyalty and fidelity. Extermination His Weapon. "Our sad plight Is also due, in the sec ond place, to the means which Mr! V. Huerta has decided to use in order to ob taii. the pac'ficatlon of the republic. These means are well known to you?death, ex termination of men, families and towns that do not sympathize with his govern ment. "Mr. V. Huerta lias said that peace will be brought about "cost what It may." Have you realized, gentlemen, what is the full Import of those words In the blood-thirsty and selfish standards of Huerta? Tnose words mean that he is ready to shed every drop of Mexican blood and cover with corpses the wide extent of our land; that he is ready to spread ruin and devastation upon the whole land, provided he can re tain the presidency and not one drop of his blood oe spilled. "In his insane endeavors to retain the presidency. Mr. Victoriano Huerta is bring ing about another infamous complication. He is provoking an international conflict with the United States of America, which conflict, if it should be settled by aa armed struggle, would lead to a silent des'.th all Mexicans who would have sur vived the butcheries of Mr. V. Huerta. All Mexicans, 1 say, except Victoriano Huerta and Aureliano Blanquet. for the people and the army would repudiate them, as marked with the stigma of treason. Mockery of Elections. "This is, in one word, our sad situation. To those who are feeble in spirit our ruin seems inevitable, because Mr. V. Huerta lias taken such a hold of the supreme powers that In order to secure the triumph of his candidacy to the presidency of the repub lic in the mockery of elections announced for the litith of October next he has uu: hesitated in violating the sovereignty of the greater number of states, removing the legal goveniois and placing in their Mead military governors who will see to It that the people be hoodwinked by means of ridiculous and criminal shams. "Nevertheless, gentlemen, one su preme effort may save the whole situa tion. Let this national representation do Its duty and our fatherland will yet be saved and will bloom forth again greater, worthier and more beautiful than ever. "The national representation must depose Mr. V. Huerta front life presi dency of the republic, for l? is against him that our brothers in arms are pro testing and consequently, because he is the one that least could effect the pacificiation of the republic, which is the supreme desire of all Mexicans. "You may say. gentlemen, that the attempt is dangerous, that Victoriano Huerta is a fierce and sanguinary sol dier who murders men without any hesitation if they are an obstacle iii his path. No matter, gentlemen, the fatherland demands of you due com pliance with your duty even in the face of'danger and even if sure death stares you in the face. * Impostor, Wicked and Unfit. "If in your anxiety for the reign of peace in the republic again established you have committed an error and have believed the insidious words of the man who promised to pacify the nation within two months and have appointed him president of republic., today, when you clearly see that said mail is an Impostor, wicked and unfit for the purpose, and >vho is leading the nation to a rapid and unmistakable ruin, will you allo<w him. through fear, to continue in the supreme power? Meditate upon this subject deep ly, gentlemen, and answer this question: "What would be said of the crew of a ship that in the throes of a tempest, while at the mercy of the maddened waves, would appoint a butcher for pilot, even know ing that he had no other knowledge of nautical science than a man traveling on the sea for the first time, and who had no other recommendation but that of having treasonably murdered the captain of the ship? He Had a Plan. "You cannot shirk your obligations, gentlemen, and our fatherland hopes and expects that you will know how to com ply with them. This first duty being complied with, it will be easy for this national representation to comply with the others that from it depend. It would at once request the revolution ary heads to suspend the fighting and name their delegates, who, in accord with us. may elect a president and this latter would call the general elections and see that they are conducted accord ing to the requisites of the law. "The world is watching us, gentlemen members of the Mexican national con gress. and our country expects you to honor her before the world and spare her the shame of having a traitor and an assassin for her ruler. "It is of the utmost importance that the Mexican neonle may come to the knowledge of this discourse. As T cannot secure the services of any printing plant 1 request all those who may read it to make five or more copies of the same, inserting this notice, and distribute them among friends and ac quaintances of the capital and of the states. "Would to God there were a printer honest and fearless." Within a few hours Senator Domin guez was dead. CHURCHlSBOUNO BY NEW DOCTRINE United Congregationalists Adopt Constitution at National Council. SOCIETIES BROUGHT UNDER SINGLE CONTROL But One Dissenting Vote to Scheme. Meetings Every Two Years. KANSAS GITY, October 25.?Congrega tionalism, united and aggressive, as rep resented in its national council, toiay ac cepted almost unanimously a constitution framed by a commission of nineteen. The final vote was Ml! to 1. The documer'" contains a new statement of doctrine, pro vides for the election of a general .secre tary with advisory powers toward the Congregational churches of the country, brings the church societies, eight in num ber. under the control of the national council and changes the time of holding council meetings from every three years to every two years. When the final vote was taken the one dissenting vote was cast by Robert Short, i layman of Seward, 111. The concen tration of the missionary societies under the national council's control did not please him. Probably the strongest discussion was met when the statement of doctrine was brought up. Meets With Rebuff. President Charles A. Blancliard of Wlieaton College, 111., one of the leaders af the conservative faction of the coun cil, met witii a rebuff when he suggested that the word "power" be added to the phrase "God the Father, infinite in wis dom. goodness and love." The sentiment of most of the delegates who spoke on the question was that the belief in the "power" of the Almighty was sufficient ly conceded by all of them that it did not require an expressed statement. To a charge that the doctrinal state ment "lacked clearness" Rev. Charles Francis Carter of Hartford. Conn., re plied: "The statement of faith here presented is notabie," said he, "as maintaining the sense of historic continuity with the faith that has found expression in .vari ous creed?, now emphasizing one phase and now another, but always holding to the supreme sources and central objec tives of faith in God, the Father, and Jesus Christ, His son. "By its significant silences it exalts spir itual experiences above the dogmatic, while it gives individual freedom of thought." New Statement Simple. Further discussion of the doctrine elic ited a statement from Rev. Newman Smvthe of New Haven. Conn. "The new statement," said he, "is in simple language so that any man. even If he is not a lawyer, can understand it. We hereby assert that we have a faith we are not afraid to own. In spirit of liberty ,in love of Christ, if we shall hold to these standards, as we go marching on. we shall never fail to claim pur apostolic succession In the faith of the holy Ath olic church." One of the solemn moments of the coun cil was just before the vote was taken on the adoption of the constitution. In a voice shaking with emotion Neliemiah Boyton of Brooklyn. N. Y.. former mod erator, asked permission to address the delegates. "We are about to ehter," said he. "into one of those moments of the highest his toric interest. We believe we approach a highly desirable consummation. We wish to follow the direction of our God. We wish our church to be spiritually ef ficient. We have been prodigal of our religious forces; we must conserve them. We must have the fires of consecration burning anew in our veins. March sepa rately, but strike together." NOBILITY BACKING SHOW.

PART OF THE PROPERTY LOCATED IN WASHINGTON Allegations That Payment of Share to John Dahlgren Was Illegally Made. Special Dispatch to Tlx? St*r. CINCINNATI! Ohio. October 25.?A sup plemental and ancillary bill has been flled in the United States district court here by Ulrica Dahlgren Pierce of Washington, D. C., trustee of the trust estate of the late Samuel F. Vinton, in the cane of Sara.. Madeleine Goddard et al. agt George Goddard et al.. to have determined by the court what, if any, interest John Dahlgren, a minor, has in the Viqton es tate; whether he is entitled to certain moneys which have been paid to Brie B. Dahlgrent#s his guardian, by the trustee, and also as to who will be entitled to re ceive the body of the trust estate at the termination of the trust. It is set out in the bill that Baroness Romaino von Over beck, granddaughter of Samuel F. Vinton, and her three chil dren?Gustav Convcrs, Oscar and Albert von Overbeck?all of whom reside In Switz erland, hav<> raised the question as to the right of John Dahlgren to any part of the distributive portion of the trust es- j tate, created by the will of Samuel K Vinton, and particularly as to such part as was derived from rentals and royal I tics and from invested proceeds of trust lands sold. It is said that they allege thai payments aggregating about JtiO.UOO. made by the trustee to Erie B. Dahlgren, as guardian of John Dahlgren, are ille gal, for the reason that John Dahlgren was not a person, nor the immediate is sue of a descendant of any person in be ing at the time of the making of the Vinton will, March 1, 1862, nor was lie horn within twenty-one years after tiie death of Vinton. Makes Adjudication Necessary. The plaintiff sajs that this contention makes it necessary to have adjudicated the payments hitherto made by her to Krie Dahlgren as guardian, and also to have determined that which may here after be paid to John Dahlgren and to other parties, and to otherwise protect and direct her as to future distributions. The Vinton estate is said to be worth several millions of dollars. At the death of Samuel F., in 18(52, he was possessed | of immense tract^of land, some of which ; was mineral and coal land, in Vinton and Athens counties, Ohio, He also owned valuable realty in Washington. D. C., his home during the latter part of his life, arid immense tracts of Towa land. In his will he created a trust including all of his property, naming Charles B. God dard of Zanesvilie. Ohio, as trustee for iiis only- daughter, Sarah Madeleine God dard. at that time a widow, and her two children?Romaine Goddard and Yjnton Goddard. The. will provided for a trust until the death of Mrs. Goddard and her children. It provided that during their live* they were to receive the income from the trust in equal shares, and upon death of all of them the trust estate ceased and determined, and the estate was to be dis tributed among the lawlul heirs and as signs in fee. Mrs. Goddard's Second Marriage. Mrs. Goddard in 1865 married Admiral John A. Dahlgren of Washington, and to them were born three children, John V. Dahlgren, dying August 10, 1899, leaving one son. John Dahlgren; Eric B. Dahlgren and Mrs. Ulrica Dahlgren Pierce, the present trustee, who has two children, Josiah D. and Vinton D. Pierce. Mrs. Goddard's daughter Ro maine, by her first marriage, became the wife of Baron Gustav von Over beck, deceased, and is the mother of Gustav Con vers. Oscar and Alfred von Overbeck. Mrs. Goddard's first son, Vin ton. died unmarried intestatg. All mem bers of the Dahlgren branch of the Vin ton family reside in Washington, and the income from the estate has been divided among the four grandchildren of Vinton as provided under the will. These grandchildren are Baroness von Overbeck, John V. and Eric Dahlgren and Mrs. Pierce. Alleged Prohibition in Law. It appears that the laws of Ohio, Iowa and the District of Columbia relating to perpetuities, etc., prohibited the payment of what would have been the share, of John V. Dahlgren in the income from the trust estate to Eric Dahlgren, as guardian of John Dahlgren and for the latter's benefit. This is set out in the bill filed by Mrs. Pierce and she states that she was in ig norance of the laws when she paid to the son the deceased father's share. She says, however, that there is a question as to whether, under the language of the will and the law, the terminated trust estate passes by will or by law or by both will and the law of descents. This question she asks the court to decide. Also the court is asked to order the re payment to the trust estate or to who ever is found to be entitled to the same the moneys paid cn acount of John Dahl gren, should it be determined that the moneys w ere paid by the trustee illegally.

SEX HYGIENE: COURSES IN SCHOOLS ADVOCATED I i Would Have Candidates for Mar riage Examined by Health Department. Almost unanimous condemnation of the present styles in dress and dances fol lowed a discussion of these subjects at the meeting of the District of Columbia Federation of Women's Clubs at the Raleigh Hotel last night. The discussion was on a resolution in troduced by Dr. Elnora C. Folkmar. chairman of the committee on social hygiene. The resolution provided that I mothers permit their girls to dance only those dances which are modest, pure, simple and sane, and those that raise no question in any one's mind regarding their propriety. The so-called "new dances" had at i least one champion in Mrs. T. F. Rorkt. I president of the Capitol Hill Historical j Society and the represent#ive of that or- I ganization in the federation. Mrs. Rorke said she had been horrified when she first learned that her son danced the tango, the turkey trot and kindred terpsichorean novelties. She said that she saw for her. self liow they were danced, and discov ered nothing objectionable in them. The whole question in any dance, she said, was how it was performed. When the matter was put to a vote, however, the resolution prevailed. Modesty in Dress Urged. Dr. Folkmar's resolution on modern dress set forth that the time was at huud for all women, and especially the mothers of growing girls, to encourage and practice modesty, simplicity and sanity in dress. "Modesty demands,'' the resolution said, "that the dress be distinctly feminine, quiet In tone, refined in line, and of a texture and mode to protect the wearer from undue attention. Simplicity de mands that the dress be suited to the individual income and station In life, the time, the place and the occasion. Sanity calls for the observance of these demands of simplicity and modesty." This motion was unanimously adopteJ after little discussion. . The subject of sex hygien? and morals ; was then taken up. Dr. Folkmar said a wave of thought touching on these ques tions was sweeping the country, and that it should be encouraged. She offer ed a resolution recommending that sex hygiene and morals be taught in the normal schools of the city, and that a course of eighteen lectures on this sub ject be necessary in 6rder to receive a diploma. The resolution was unanimous ly adopted. Congress was asked to empower the local health department to examine, free of charge, all domestics, children's i nurses and candidates for marriage for evidences of specific diseases, it was de clared this examination should not be mandatory, but rather a privilege to the classes it included. liaising' of Funds Discussed. When the subject of wssys and means of raising money for the federation was brought up. a variety of schemes was of fered. First, it was proposed that a ba i^ar be held in December for the sale of aprons and like articles, *to be made by members of the ' organization, but this met with disfavor. Mrs. Mary l.oek wood suggested that the cost of printing the yeAr books and cards of the federa tion be apportioned among the members, but there was opposition to this idea also. Mr* Ada Weiss thought It would ba a good and feasible plan to have th Sec * retar.v of the State and some "singers" entertain at one of the local theaters some Sunday afternoon, but the question of raising funds was Anally vested in the hands of the ways and means commit tee. Luncheon to Be Given. Mrs. L. W. Calver, chairman of the i-ltibliouso committee, announced that a I'jiiclieou would be given In January, that otic of the members of her commit tee had already volunteered to furnish the hall for the affair, and one of the twelve members of the committee Mould visit every club affiliated with the fed eration in order to secure a largo at tendance. On motion of Mrs. Rob Roy Mc ! Kalian!1 the federation unanimously and I enthusiastically placed itself on record 1 as favoring the plan of the local chap i ters of the D. A. R. to raise funds for an | additional probation officer at the Juve l nile Court, and strongly in favor of the ; erection of a new courthouse and deteu ! tion home for children. Mrs. Mary lx>ckwood and Mrs. Wil liam E.

Friday. By a standing vote the unani | mous sympathy of the members of the \ j federation was expressed. Mrs. Ellis Logan. president of the fed eration, was in the chair. At the close of last night's meeting she announced I that the next meeting would be held the last Saturday in November. MARYLAND STATE FAIR WILL OPEN ON TUESDAY Exhibits of All Kinds Arranged.
