"he Uqsor TraHl U loanf of Hm h
Evil and All Engaged la It Cannot He-
. ' 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.

Washington, July 18. Senator. Jones
bf Arkansas, after the ineffectual meet
ing .of the democratic conferees this
- morning, drove straight to the white
house and had an hour's conference
(With the president.
The bouse conferees had a consulta
tion this afternoon with Speaker Crisp
before going to the full conference and
ccme "away convinced that they were
pursuing- the right course In insisting
on the essential features of the house
' bill.' "'' ';..;
Within, a very few minutes after
the conferees met Mr. Voorhees an
nounced that It was apparent that the
two' bouses were unable to agree, and
It bad been decided to report a general
disagreement. ;.. -
Mr. Wilson stated after the confer
ence that he would make the report
to the house to-morrow morning. 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. If the house' In-
- slated upon heaping coals of fire on the
heads" of the senate conferees and as-
' Sailing them it would' be very likely that
the' senate.- When the bill came back,
would in like manner debate the bill.
Mr .Wilson says the report of the con
ferees will be Verbal and will simply
state .that the conference committee
of the two houses has failed to reach
an agreement t k

: of the bouse conferees to insist on the
house bin has the hearty approval not

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
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.

lah r&irtriHii WORK Of
Attorneys Ml aitou, Aaher and Kly
Eloquently Ram op Evidence Execu
tive Action by the Board of Health To
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
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
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.
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
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

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

to the Waldron case, where the clerk

tlmt l.l With Japan anil al the Same
Time With Korea No OflTenae Has lleea
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
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.

Accusations Made Against a Civil Service
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.

They Will Now Cary Emigrants to Eng
land for SjlO.
New York, July 18. 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." ' . ,

Philadelphia, July lt-Although th
Boston-Philadelphia game passed oft
peaceably enough to-day on the
grounds while First Baseroaa Tucker of
the Bostons was alighting from the
coach at the door of the hotel where ths
club was staying some one leaned out
of ths window of a passing trolley car
and struok hlra in the mouth. Ths
blood spurted from ths effects of the
blow, and Tucker and Right Fielder
Bannon started in pursuit of the oar.
They could not catch ths rapidly mov
ing car, and after running for about
half a square they stopped and Tack
er began to call for the police.
In the meantime a crowd of about 500
men and boys had collected, and Ban
non discreetly retired within the hotel.
Tucker remained In the street, how
ever and by the time the police came
up he was in danger of being roughly
handled by the angry crowd that had
collected around him. Tucker made
matters worse by abusing the police for
not discovering his assailant, and final
ly, more to protect hlra than anything
else, Tucker was arrested and taken to
the station house. Later In the evening
he was released.
On the way from the grounds this
afternoon, while the Boston players'
coach was passing Twelfth and Rac
street, some boys threw a tomato. One
of the players, said to be Lowe, jumped
from the coach, and, catohlng one of the
boys, struck him and knocked him
down; and while be was lying; on the
pavement kicked him II n the side. This
action probably led to the scene before
the hotel.
Before leaving with the team to-night
Tucker denounced his arrest as an out
rage, and said he should have received
protection from the police.
