' him Hralwl of Any Catholic Society It is hi Hatching. New York, July 19. The Tribune says: Monslgnor Batolll, the apostolic delegate, bat given a deolslon oondoinn- ing the liquor trafflo, eipeoially at It U carried on In the United State and ap proving the expulsion of liquor dealer t from Catbolio societies. Thli decision was oalled fortb by un Appeal from the ruling of Bishop Wat- tenon of Columbus, Ohio. During the last lenten season Bishop Watterson ad' dressed a letter to the clergy of bis dio cese to be read before their congrega tion. The letter dealt wholly with the temperance problem and In it Bishop Watterson said: "I hsreby Withdraw my approbation from any and every Catholio society or branch or division thereof In this dlooese that has a liquor dealer or saloonkeeper at its bead or anywhere among Its officers ;and I suspend every such society itself from the rank and prlvilegs as a Catholic society until It oeasss to be so offl cerei." To many people in the diocese of Co lumbus this attitude of Bishop Wat son seemed unjust, and one of the soci eties laid the matter before Mgr. Satolll After a time the apostolic delegate re turned an answer upholding the posi tion of the bishop. The society was not satisfied, and It was said that the del etrate did not understand the case. The bishop therefore asked 'another society to take the matter up and present it once more at Washington, agreeing himself to sign the appeal from Mgr. SatolU's decision, in order that the mat ter might be presented in the strongest light possible. To this second appeal the apostolic delegate has Just responded. He reaf firms his first Judgment, sustaining the position of Bishop Watterson, and says: "Bishops have the right and duty to guard faith and morals within the limits of their dioceses. They are the divinely appointed Judges in such mat ters, and, hence, no mere society or in dividual layman has the right to set such decision at defiance. The mere fact that such decision may be the cause of temporal loss does not Justify opposi tion, as the temporal must give way to the spiritual good, and the private pood must give way to the public good. "Second, The liquor trame, and es pecially as conducted here in the United "'States, Is the source of much evil; hence the bishop was acting within the right la seekhtg ttt-rMtrtoMt.:. , -, "Third, Therefore the delegate apos tolic sustains BUhop Wattersoa and ap proves of his circular letter and regular tlon concerning saloons and the expul sion of saloon keepers from member ship in Catholic societies." . . The Rev. Alexander P Doyle of the Paulist Fathers, general secretary of the Catholic Abstinence union, said yes terday that this declaration of the apos tolic delegate was the most important ever announced by the church in this country, and he thought its effect would be far-reaching. Never before in the history of the Catholic church In the United States had such an un qualified principle on the temperance question been laid down.

Dur- " ing the informal discussion In the com mittee room he was asked by Senator Jones bow long the house would prob ably keep the bill,, whereupon Mr. Wil son replied that he thought the con ; terees would be instructed to insist up- on the house bill, and the conferees f- would be sent back within two hours. The same question was then put to Sen ' atot Jenes, and he said that the action of the' senate would dpend upon the ction of the' bouse.

B at sue Gerry Society Prevented Alls From Becoming an Old Man's Darling. New York, July 18. A queer story was told In the Yorkvllle police court to-day when Mrs. Mary Ann McKee of No. ill West Forty-eighth street appeared there In answer to a summons obtained by Agent Agnew of the Gerry society, who asserted that Mrs. McKee was not a proper person to have charge of her fourteen-year-old (laugh tar, Alice, who Is said to be a wild, wayward girl. The accused Is a widow who keeps boarders at the above ad dress, and Is also said to be part owner of the premises. Agent Agnew's chief witness was Charles Mitchell, who claims to be only fifty years old but looks fully ten years older. He Is a veteran of the civil war, and Is so disabled by rheumatism and partial paralysis that be receives a pension of $30 a month. Two months ago be came here from the Soldiers' home at Marlon, Ind., and rented a room from Mrs. McKee. He and young Alice became quite friendly and she was very attentive to the old man, who soon formed the foolish Idea of marrying the young glrl.who Induced him to believe that she was over six teen years old. Mitchell said that the mother did not oppose his wishes In the matter, and the girl pretended that she would be delighted to be an old man's darling, Five weeks ago he gave the girl a gold watch valued at $20, and two weeks ago, when he proposed marrllge for mally to her on the front stoop of her house, and was accepted, he handed her $40, with which to purchase the wedding outfit. Mitchell claims that the mother was present all the time and saw him give her daughter the money. The old man sent a friend to the Holy Cross church on Forty-second street to have the banns published, and when the marriage engagement was not an nounced in church the Infatuated vet eran demanded an explanation from his friend. The latter told him that the pastor of the church knew the Mc Kee family, and when he learned through the mother that Alice was only fourteen years old he refused to san tlon such a marriage. The affair in some way was called to the attention of the Gerry society and Agent Agnew Investigated it. He heard the old man's story, and when he questioned Mrs. McKee she said it was all a Joke, but she continued to hold on to the watch and the $40. Neigh bors told the agent that Alloe was a bold, impudent girl and was not being properly brought up by her mother. .In court Alice said that she thought the. old man was payingLattentions to an older daughter. -,' ... Justice - Meade committed Alice to the care; of the Gerry society and ad journed the case until to-morrow so that Mrs. McKee could furnish evidence that she was a proper person to have charge of the ' young girl. Mitchell went ' away wondering whether the watch and the money would be re turned to him. NEW YORK TACHT CLVB. General Orders Issued for the Annual Cruise to the Eastward. New York, July 18.

THE Attorneys Ml aitou, Aaher and Kly Eloquently Ram op Evidence Execu tive Action by the Board of Health To night The arguments on thoohargot against Health Otlluor Wright and Clerk Bailey were heard by the board of health at the cbainlwr of the hoard of council mun liutt evening. Each of the attorneys wore limited to half-hour argument, Attorney Hamilton making the opening and closing arguments. The attorneys were through by 11 o'olook and the bourd adjourned until to-nlgbt at 8:30, when they will go into executive session to consider what action shall be taken on the charges advanced. The arguments ii the mum are as follows. Attorney Hamilton spoke first. He said: - May It please your honor and goutle- men of tho board if I bad followed my own Inclination and yielded to the heat of the evening, I should probably not have argued this case. But I feel that some more light should be shed ou this case. Now, the Issue Is what this board should do If these men are found guilty. The question is. Have these men been guilty of such conduct or done such things that their usefulness as public servants has been injured because this evidence has come out? Men have been discharged hundreds, yes, thousands, bf times, and the employers have given no reason. But they had a reasonable purpose in so doing, although they may not have made it public. You are not here to try these men or to sentence them as criminals. All you want to do Is to investigate the question whether their usefulness as public servants has been destroyed. I think, however, it would be almost even chances whether a jury would convict these men on the evidence, Now, what is the evidence? ' One thing is sure Bailey received the mon ey. No one has ever appeared to claim It. It has been in his possession from the time It was given him until now. Mr. tialley was apparently doing no business with Mr Swayne. How, then, did he get this money? Bailey tells story which, I say, will not for one mo ment bear investigation. He tells us of a mysterious Bridgeport ' creditor who was coming up here to attach' Mr. Swayne's pay. A most rem arkable thing It is that this man has never ap peared. And another remarkable thing is that Bailer did not take enough- in terest irrthe matter to inquire thlercr ed itor's first nam, simple,, bare Wll Hams, a mythical man.- It is very pecu liar, too,, that a creditor would have been supposed to search out the clerk of the v board of. ljeaBn a man -with whom Swayne was doing1 no business whateveivta attach . his pay. All the circumstances surrounding this ..ease snows mat mere is someinmg wrong, I will now speak of Dr. Wright's case. There has been a good deal of evi dence Introduced concerning bis alibi, Now an alibi is always held to be the weakest kind of a defence. How many of you gentlemen would presume to go back thirty days and tell just where you were and what you did at a certain time. ThlB fact, however, stands out clear that on the morning that Swayne says he conversed with Dr. Wright on Orange street Dr. Wright was on that part of Orange street. Mr. Swayne does not attempt to fix the matter definitely. But It is sure that the two men met between 8 and 10 o'clock . on Orange street on that day. I do not think that the testimony of Dr. Wright's boy is to be taken into consideration at all. He cannot remember a thing that, hap pened on the. day before, or the day after. On tne other hand we have. Mr. and Mrs. Swayne coming here and mak ing most positive, and certain, state- ments as to that Interview. Either. they are both guilty of premeditated per jury, or this interview did take place as they stated. , Attorney Asher then made the first ar gument for the defence. He said In paft I do not think that anything I can say will change your minds. Mr. Hamilton asks what Mr. Swayne would .gain by saying what he did about Dr. Wright. Do criminals ever gam any thing by doing deeds of violence and falsifying? But I say that Mr. Swayne did have a motive. He came here & year ago a stranger, a tramp, you .might al most say, as he himself testified that he bad been in almost every kind of bus-, Iness in twenty different cities. He took the contract for $1,900 less than the for mer contractor. The figure was. so qw that it could not be done in a compe tent and business-like manner. , Soon complaints began to pour In. Swayne was talked about The public Journals were full of the matter. There was talk of withdrawing the contract ' from Swayne and punishing with a fine. What Swayne wanted to do was to de tract the public attention from his in efficiency. Another motive was re venge. He wanted to get even with Dr- Wright for sayihg-to Doran that "He would be a d- n sight sicker man if he did not come down and attend to busi ness." ".'- . "i - "' ; Mr.Hamilton has told you that an alibi Is the weakest kind of defence; Now this is absolutely false. The Word of a reputable citizen like Dr. Wright; who has dwelt in your midst for a long time, ought to have as much weight as that of a tramp like, Swayne. MrvBrohsoh,pf Washburn & Co.'s. and the janitor bf Warner hall, each came here and testi fied that Dr. Wright was In Warner hall on the morning of May 23: Swayne hull t up his case right oa this point or fact bf meeting vof Dr.; .Wright on .Orange street. He wanted to crush .the. man who had Insulted him. He was,' too.at this time' about to put up a job on Mr. Bailey.- But what more can Dr. Wright do -than he-has done to convince you gentlemen ' that these tales are false and scandalous? - Why - fshould Swayne be believed because h say that pr. NEW HAVEN" CONN., THURSDAY, Wrtght Is dishonest, and hns his wife to corroborate hliaU Attorney Ely was the next speaker. Ha argued In behalf of Clerk Bulley and spoke In part as follows: "We in sisted on this InvestiguUtin. They would have left the matter drop. There are always people In a community like this who In their orm se'f-suRli-lency and . pharasalcal perfn-tlnn. believe charges like these. Now mark that of the ten complaints, which have no foundation, In fact, Bailvy had no rec ord on his books! Nor could it be proven that Bailey gave the complaints to Swayne. What would Swayne do In this matter anyway, if he were an honest man? Here Is all (his talk since April. Wouldn't he have come before you gentlemen? Would i he have come to the mayor and said tfcat Ilalley was trying to get an Interest In pigs and making Up fictitious .tales. Now I say that a man like Bailey who has lived his life among you here and has led an unblemished life, would not sell himself out for. $15. If Swayne gave Bailey that money oh June ?, between 3 and 3:30 p. m., the story is falBe. be- caus Bailey left In the morning. If Swayne is false In one thing, he Is false In all. If he did not see Bailey on May 23, the whole story Is false at 1 it Was manifestly proven here that Bailey did not see Swayne that morn ing. The testimony of Inspec tors Mix and " Jackson and At torney Hoadley shows this con cluslvely. Bailey's story which he told you Is the same he has told you from the first But Swayne first tes titled that he gave Bailey the money to keep quiet Last night he testified that he gave the money to catch Bailey for the purpose of exposing him, and It seems that. complaints came In no diminished number after the time that Swayne says he paid Bailey the money for suppressing false com plaints. Attorney Hamilton then made the closing argument. He said in part: It is said that Swayne does not tell his story alike to the newspaper reporter ana here before you gentlemen. ' Now I say that any man that tells his story parrot-like time after time Is a liar. No two men will tell the same story of the same events. Neither does a man tell a story twice exactly alike. The defense says that Bailey might have spent the $6 if he considered that the money belonged to him. How do we know that that $5 bill Is the same one? We do not know thenumber nor the bank ft was drawn on. . It lsaaid that there were motives on the part of Swayne. J say that he had every motive in the world to keep the friendship of . these men. I say -that these men are like hundreds of others who have yielded to temptation, . The defense have held UP to us the resnect ability of Dr. Wright ant Clerk Bailey. Now, I say-that ls.-ntiefense.- Our. prisons are full of respectable prison ers. Well, they, say that Swayne Is i stranger.T I aek you, gentlemen, is it any defense to offer? Is if arty crime to be a Stranger?, I shall not denounce Dr.- Wright and Clerk Bailey as blaek- legs. They have simply been tempted a little (beyond what they could bear. and stepaed aside from the strict oath of rectitude, and-done nrhat they ought 4 not lo nave aone. xnanking you gen tlemen for your courtesy, I leave the case in your hands. Mayor ' Sargent said that the only expense of the ' investigation which would be paid by the city would be the cost, of subpoenaing and the stenogra phers' bills. This case was not similar to the Waldron case, where the clerk of the board of public works was im peached by city officials, so that the lawyers' fees would not come out of the city; Agreed on the Naval BUI.

It la In Accordance M'lth Treaty Negnlla. tlmt l.l With Japan anil al the Same Time With Korea No OflTenae Has lleea Taken. Washington, July 18. Tho L'nltod Slates, acting Independently of other powttrs, ha mado repruKunlittlon to China and Jnpuu through tho American minister In those countries looking to a sotllctmcnt f I he Korean uoutroTcrsy by ittuot-uble methods. The sutrgestiou luwbeeu conveyed to both governments that luterest of the United States In all Aslatlo waters Is s )lcly for unrestricted commerce and the general wvlfure of nations. It seeks no territory on the western shore of the 1'uclllo Ocuuii and desires In future to have no offvuslve or defensive relatione of a political uuture with Asiatic coun tries. But it views with deep concern a possible war iu the east which might eventually involve other powers and even affect the peace of Europe. In these representations to China and Jnpuu tho United States hopes to bring about an agreement to have the dispute submitted to arbitration. The Interest which the United States has always manifested In Korean alTalrs has been extremely cordial, and not more so than Its relations with Japan. Both countries were opened to the world by this country, Japan in 1S54 and Korea in 1882. In the treaty negotiated with Japan in 1858 the second article expressly provides that "the president of the United States, at the request of the Japanese government, will act as a friendly mediator In such matters of differences as may arise between the government of Japan and any Euro pean power," and that American war ships shall render assistance to Japan ese vessels on the high sea. Most of the institutions of Japan are modelled after those of the United States, and noth ing has occurred to affect the relations between the countries. In the treaty with Korea the United States assumed obligations quite as important. Ar ticle 1 reads: "There shall be perpetual peace and friendship between the pres ident of the United States and king of Korea, and the citizens and subjects of their respective governments. If other powers deal unjustly or oppressively with either government the other will exert, their good offlces.on being In formed of the case, to bring about an amicable 'arrangement, thus showing Ihetrjfrtendly -feelings." It was under this clause that the king of Korea on 'June V last when the rebellion progressed beyond his control, asked the United States to send war ships toChemuIpo, a request which resulted In the' dispatch of the flagship Baltimore to that port the hext day and under the second "jArafetaph of this Clause the Korean government notified the United States two weeks ago that Japan and China were dealing, "unjustly and oppressively In response to this notice about ten days ago the administration assured the Korean government that it would exert all its ' friendly Influences with Japan and China to relieve Korea's distress'. China at once disclaimed all inten tlon of oppressing Korea, or desiring to embarrass that country by the pres ence of its troops, and expressed wil llngness to withdraw them as soon as Japan agreed to do the same. Japan's reply Was a similar disclaimer of Inten tionally oppressing Korea or having any design Upon' Korean territory, but declining to withdraw troops until sat isfactory measures had been taken to prevent the frequently occurring Inter nal disturbances In that country, which affeoted Japanese Interests more serl ously that those of other countries. The United States thereupon made rep resentations to China and Japan cal culated to settle the', matter if the two countries desired its good offices. It IS understood to-day that both Ja pan And China are satisfied that the United -States may be depended upon to do full justice to 011 concerned, and the prospect for a speedy and peacea ble conclusion of the controversy is ex cellent; v. The rumor that Japan had taken of fence at the so-called Interference of the United States is declared to be utterly groundless. IT WAS A 1AXE It ACE.

' BR1SERT A CHARGED. ' Accusations Made Against a Civil Service Officer. New York, July 18. The exposure of an alleged scandal in connection with the civil service commission in Brook lyn, which has Just become known.was the cause of general comment in that city to-day. Mayor Schieren has become thoroughly arouBed, and to-day ex pressed his Indignation, Joseph L. Bergen, No. 96 Fourth place, is responsible for the statement that Edward Datton, a olerk of the com mission, offered to seoure for him a position on the pollae force for $40. In verification of this declaration Bergen produced letters written by Datton.. In one of these is asked for "What they were talking about on the ISth of the month." In explanation of this Dalton admits the writing of the letter, and says It refers to $20 which he says Ber gen agreed to pay him for "assistance." He also admits the writing of other let ters of a somewhat similar character. On learning of the charges Mayor Schieren at once sent for Alexander E, Orr, the president of the civil service commission and informed him that a thorough Investigation of the matter would.be made, and that the man, If proven guilty, would be brought to ac count for his actions. Just what action would be taken the mayor eould not say, but intimated that it would be prompt and thorough. '' ' ., . ., , While Dalton does not deny the au thorship of the letter, he does deny Bergen's statements, and characterizes him as "a crank and an ignorant liar' as regards the true facts of the case.

Both the Ham burg-American and the North German Lloyd have reduced rates for emigrants to $10 to London and all railway sta tions In England and Glasgow. This is a cut of $8 or more, and Is aimed at the White Star, American and Cunard lines, and reduces the Income of a tioket to the German lines to $4.. The White Star line was obliged to-. day to cease booking emigrants for its steamer Teutonic, which is to leave for Liverpool next Wednesday. About 900 third class passengers have been booked for the vessel. Agent Samuel Certes of the White Star fine said to-day: "It Is a mistak en idea that cut rates are likely to bring a' large Immigration here. Everybody . who goes to Europe for $10 will spread reperts about the hard times here, and few will come. It was so In 1873 when we bad a $10 rate, and it was in 1878 be fore immigration was revived."
