CI1AM8ED WITB TIOLATTOXS Of XUE LS IE HUT ATE ACT. Judge Seaman Bm Fixed Bull of Trn Thousand Dalian Against Each and Every Individual It l Wholesale Ronnd-Up for An Concerned. Chicago, July 19. The federal graud jury to-day handed In twenty-nine in dlotment charging violations of the interstate act and the laws relating to the transportation of the United States malls against forty-three Individuals. It was, as District Attorney Milohrlst put it, "a wholesale round-up of every. body concerned In the railroad strike Within the Jurisdiction of the olrcuit court for the northern district of Illi nois." Judge Seamana fixed the ball on each of the Indictments In the sum of $10,000 against each and every individual con' eerned. No warrants of arrest were Is sued this evening and District Attorney MUchrlst and his associates manifested an unusual reticence regarding the Identity of the parties indicted. It was given out in a general way, however, that not only were there cu- mutative indictments against President Debs, Vice President Howard, Secre tary Kellher and Editor Rogers of the Railway Journal, but that also that ev- ery member of the directors of the American Railway union had been in dieted and would be put on trial. It was also hinted that Organizer Phelan,who, on Monday, was committed by Judge Taft at Cincinnati for contempt of court, was among the lndioted pan-ties, In one indictment nineteen defendants are named. The news that the grand Jury had re turned an omnibus indictment obtained ,wlde circulation in labor circles to lilght, and was productive of consider able apprehension. ft was surmised that representatives of various organizations who had taken part m ordering a gen eral tie-up had fallen under the ban of the grand Jury, and it was reported that General Master Workman Sover eign of the Knights of Labor was one of those for whom a warrant would be Issued to-morrow, under the general bonspiracy law. No corroboration of this rumor, however, could be obtained at (he federal building. To-morrow the. pa pers will be a matter of record, and the marshal has been Instructed to have a lorce of deputies on hand to act as pro teas servers.

BAILEY EXONERATED. WJ5 MAKES A LEXOTHY HTATEMEXT TO THE rE.ITKVXKX, They Met Leal Night and Kspreeead Them elves a. Helng Matlaned With Tbelr Bee tor's F.iplanaUoa Henceforth There Will be Harmony. An Important meeting of the vestry men of the Church of the Ascension was held In the vestry of the ohuruh lust nlpht, and the mlsmidersUndlug which lately arose between the rector, Frederic W, Bulley, and the parishioners, was fully settled. After the meeting the vestrymen were seeu and unanimously stated that henceforth everything would progress harmoniously between the rector and his parishioners, and that every conlideuue would be reposed In him as heretofore. The following oom m'unlcatiou from Mr. Bailey was read at the meeting: New Haven, Conn., July 17, 1891. To the Members and Friends of the Church of the Ascension: In view of the various reports re garding myself and the church publish ed In the several dallies of the city, It seems but proper that you should have from me a full statement of the facts In the oase and such other Information as may aid you to a Just and fair con clusion. I have preferred not to reply to these several varying statements, knowing how little Is gained by such contentions, yet I am desirous that those most deeply interested in our wel fare should know that the rector has something to say, if only In his own defense. In the first place let me state that at the annual Easter parish meeting held March 26 last, so satisfactory was the report of the treasurer, who, after pay ing all outstanding obligations had a small surplus, and so harmonious was the gathering, that an increase of salary was voted me. It is reasonable to be lieve, theretae-e, that up to this time there was no trouble and my endeavors for the welfare of the parish Justly sanctioned. In the second place it may be said that at the time of the speolal parish meeting of June 4 the rector's relations with the parish were amicable to that degree as to lead the parish by formal vote to plaoe in his hands all the busi ness affairs of the parish and to give him the entire responsibility of straight ening out its financial difficulties. And, furthermore, be it said' that at this very meeting in the letter of resig nation presented by the clerk of the parish occur these words: "From the first and last in part I am fully con vinced that I am a stumbling block in the way of the rector and his way of dolngbusiness, and have decided to re move all such obstruction in his effect ive good work." Consequently It Is but proper to say that the confidence of the parish in its rector's endeavors was very clearly shown and candidly stated in tnis its regular proceeding. Now, while herein is a sufficiently lengthy statement of the ease for all who are actively engaged in the work,it does not cover the ground which the several papers have touched upon nor fully explain the situation to the outside but interested public. Consequently let me indulge in a little detail. The Rev. George Herbert in his book, "Priest to the Temple," writes: "The country par son hath a special care of his church. that all things there be decent and be- fltttlng His name by which it is called. Therefore, first he takes order that all things be in good repair; as walls das tered, windows glazed, floor paved, seats wnoie, nrm and uniform, especially that the pulpit and desk and communion ta ble and font be as they ought for those great duties that are performed in them." A clergyman who loves his church cannot but be zealous for all sacred ap pointments and restless indeed if proper care is not taken of all its properties. . When It became my lot to associate with this parish the church was found in no very satisfactory condition. The word '"neglect" could be seen every where, and to this day as I behold the round window over the chapel door un protected and now pierced by several stray stones, the roof tin twisted and vines running wild, fence patched and unpalnted, with all that had already been done to preserve and protect, I see still a wrok awaiting only additional funds to finish. Fortunately for me and the parish wel fare, there came last fall knocking at my door a poor Englishman, Who, with the many needy ones all around us at that time, apppealed for aid. I was not willing to give the little to be spared without some return, and seeing my opportunity he was set at work in the church basement and kept at work there even at times when my own purse was drawn upon, till an improvement and greater security from fire vas ob tained. Tou may never have been in the base ment, but those who have dared know its forlorn condition at the time. The cellar was without flooring save for one meagre board extending down through the center between high banks of sand on either side. It was mainly for the convenience of the sexton In reaching his furnaces. In the cellar were gathered the relics of bygone days old red cushions and hassocks, carpet and matting of lone standing, antique pews too long for convenient use, prayer desks, ash heaps, old paper and books accumulated through the years, the usual quantity of wood and lumber. and worst of all '"was a great quantity of old Christmas trees and greens, dry as tinder, piled deep and high against a wooueu paruuon ana near to tne rear and most decrepit furnace. The boys' robing room was. also' a store room. On Its floor lay an old and ragged square carpet, so dirty with tracking from the cellar that oc casionally some mischievous - fellow would lift an end and with a shake be cloud everyone In dust. No one seemed to have any interest down stairs except to add to the accumulation and neglect.; With the -aid of this man I was en- abled to work a complete renovation there,, which certainly. Js. afiDTficl&ted, by those whose dutlts call ihirn below. Rooms thus have been Hrranged for society meetings, parish gmhfrlngs and lilble classes, and" tn tli.- necessary change of thecholr a room provided for the lady singers distinct from the men's and all paid for without drawing upon the actual parish treasury, j Perhaps it Is with regard to the latter that the moat has been snld and the severer criticism of the rector's course made. ' After the laborer had accomplished all that was necesary In the banutn.-nt he still needed aid and I could not turn him off at such a time, even thouith what little I could give was but the remnants of our dally meals. Many a time did I carry these over to him and he was grateful and labored Just as faithfully. Much desired space (here In the cellar could be secured, I thought, by the re moval of a portion of the sand that well nigh filled the place. As nothing else seemed possible, to this humble occupation he wus assigned and to my surprise soon removed suffi cient to make a respectably sir.ed room. Ere, however, this was betrun or any permanent improvements attempted, it was recognized that the vestry should give Its assent, and as action had to be taken Immediately the rector on the fol lowing Sunday called the vestrymen, who were a majority, together and In an Infoimal way discussed the matter to the satisfaction of them nil. He had not the least suspicion that there could he any opposition anywhere to so desir able an undertaking. He then did state that the expense of the work would not rome out of the parish treasury, or In other words, be an expense to the par iah. He did say, however, that It would he his endeavor to secure from the La dles' Aid society the fund which It had kept for parish house purposes, and as this was a substitute, could not see why It should not be so employed. The more reason had he for so thinking since that fund was not left by anyone for that particular purpose, but was a sum rais ed by the society and by vote so de fined, a part already having been used for various purposes'. Unfortunately for his cause, he was not able to attond that meeting of the Ladles' Aid. Indeed, he had no reason to suppose that there could possibly be any spirit other than tbattof furthering his endeavors to secure, so cheaply, use ful parish rooms. But for spine unfore seen circumstance the plan did not carry. m Defeated thus in his efforts to raise the necesary funds, there was left him one alternative. He had the resource, prescribed by churoh oanonjf he did 'not choose to solicit money by personal appeal, and as said canon had "Mbn respected in the services of the church he found the way open whereby to get relief from the em barrassing situation. ' ' The canon law reads as follows: Title I, canpn 1$, article III., section fl: "The alms and contribution at the administration of the'ioly communion shall be deposited 'with the minister of the parish or with Such church officer as shall be apppointed by him, to be ap plled by thVmlhlster or under his super intendence to. suoh pious and charitable uses as shall him bethought fit," As Easter Was approaching,, Jhe reotor at a meeting' of the stry stated his intention as to the securing of a large Eester offering. Given by canon law certain rights regarding the communion offerings, and knowing how large the Easter offering. Given by canon law desire in all fairness that the people themselves should decide Just how it should be used. An appeal was issued as stated to the vestry, reading in part as follows: "According to a canon of the church, all the holy communion alms are to be used at the rector's discretion. This year the following are the purposes to which he would devote them, and you will please designate by a number on your envelope to which purpose you would prefer your offering appropriat ed. All not designated will go to the first named. 1. Rector's discretion for charity and church purposes. 2. Parish improvements. 3. Parish expenses. 4. Missions. Every one gave accordingly and were so classified by a committee, and if the rector used his portion largely for the purpose uppermost in his mind and at his own discretion what has he done that should lead to such base less rumor and unfair inference. This therefore, so far as he is aware. covers the whole subject and it is to be hoped will enable all to rightly deter mine the' truth of the matter. No one Can question but that there has been a great improvement in the material conditions of the church and if all our people would but sacrifice their own little whims and fancies, heed the law of the-church, encourage and support the - rector In his endeavors, even if some mistakes are made, and learn to work and pray, too. In His name, as they should, a new and brighter chap ter could be written of the life of the Church of the Ascension than has ever yet been recorded. Very sincerely, - Tour Rector, FREDERIC W. BAILEY. P. S. As this recent discussion has affected somewhat our financial condi tion and will necessitate an appeal for funds, if any one reading this is disposed to aid us, will he or she for ward such gifts either to the rector at 567 Howard avenue, or to the treas urer; Mr. H. W. Kelley, 881 Howard avenue, when due acknowledgment will be made. . Won By the Dakotah. Dublin, July 19.

They Claim That the Church l!a no III hi to luterfere In Any Way With the Matter or Liquor BrUlns-Halled with Delight by Temoeranee People. Ilostou.July 10. The decision of Mgr. Sntolll ycnterduy condemning the liquor trafilo and approving the expulsion of liquor duulnrs from Catholic societies, has created oonnidernble discussion in rt'liglous aud secular circles to-duy aud brought out a diversity of opiulons, Christopher Kay, for some time presi dent of tbe Cathollo Total Abstinence Union of the dta-osu of Boston, snld the decision was right in the line of tbe union's work and he balled it with de light. Among the liquor dealers in the city who are Catholics, but few are found willing to express an opinion on the subject. Some, however, are outspoken in criticising the decision of Mgr. Sntol II, considering that the church has no right to Interfere In any way with the mutter of liquor selling. M. T. Clarke, of M. T. Clarke & Co., expressed the opin ion that there Is plenty of law In the country to govern the act of liquor sell ers without the church Interfering. He considered the ruling an Infringement of liberty. He said: "Whenever the church wants money the liquor dealers are the first people they come to, and It is a fact we give more to charity than any other one class of men in business." John H. Stack, a Washington street dealer, said he did not care to discuss the matter.for he did not want to be come angry. Turning to a fellow dealer who happened to be In his store he asked: "What do you think of this de cision?" "I think we had better stop giving him our support," was the re sponse. John C. Daly of School street would say nothing, thinking it best to let the matter rest right where It Ib. Said one man to-day: "If dealers paid to the church or for charitable pur poses twenty times the amount they al ready pay they could not compensate us for the money that they have taken from our people." In brief, the clergy and officers of tem perance organizations heartily approve Mgr. Satolll's ruling, while Catholic liquor dealers condemn it in prlvate.if not openly. OX THE BAIL WIELD.

The only In formation vouchsafed at tbe nary or state dnpurliuvut concerning tbe ne cessity for sending the cruiser Columbia to Uluellelds Is the following given to the press: According to u dispatch reoelved by the suorctury ot Uie tiavy to-day dated at New Orloaui, July 10, the situation at BlueBulds on July 13, Is reported as follows: "Tbe Mosqultos have controlled the neighborhood of Dluofields and the aot- tng Nicsruguan commissioner has gone to Kama." It Is stated, however, that the United States has not recognized the govern ment of Chief Clarence. Naval oftlaers think there are three reasons for send Ing the Columbia to Bluetlelds: (1) There Is likely to be considerable fighting and American lives and property would be apt to suffer In the absence of a strong American force. CD It would seem de sirable in such a crisis to have on the spot an officer of high rank and great experience such as Captain Sumner. (S) The personnel of the Columbia needs active service and discipline. Dr. Guzman, the Nlcaraguan minis ter, says he has had several cablegrams from his government In regard to the Insurrection at Blueflelds. He declares it to be a mere filibustering affair, of which Clarenoe, the Mosquito chief, has been made the ostensible leader by foreign residents, who want to throw off the Nlcaraguan rule. He says there are not altogether 200 In dians In the country and they are a miserable lot, utterly Incapacitated for governing themselves. iroy Br loud clixtox.
