Washington, Nor. I Secretary Car
llile ha Ulcm offlolal notice ot th
peach of Senator Fry, delivered re
cently in Massachusetts, In which he
awertad that the secretary when a
member of th senate had agreed to
Senator. Sherman' proposition to Usue
bond at I per cent to maintain the
parity of th United Bute circulation
with sold, but that he subsequently
after hearing th outcry mad by
Bland and others, wrote a letter say.

Mr. Fry e, in commenting upon this
alleged action, said ! tlfet when the
dear Lord made Mr. Carlisle be did not
put any more backbone Into blm than
be did into the eel hemade next.
Secretary Carlisle has written a let
ter on the subject to Phinea Pierce
at Boston, in response to a telegram
from the latter Inquiring If Mr. Frye's
statements were correct. Mr. Carlisle
says that he understands Mr. Frye's
statement were substantially a fol

nt That, tha immAmHit offered by
V Bcmatnr Sherman tn the sundry Civil
appropriation in February, 1893, con
' talned "a provision that all our money
muBt be kept at a parity wltb gold,"
or "for the redemption of all money in
(2) That Mr. Carlisle approved this
amendment when it was under con
sideration in the senate committee on
finance, but afterwards caused its de
feat in the house by sending a tele
gram and writing a letter in opposi
tion to it
(3) That within a fortnight aftelr
that time Mr. Carlisle In an interview
ad: "We will be obliged to redeem
onr money in sliver" and that this al
leKed declaration brought on a panic
and caused millions and miUlons of
gold to be exported.
- Mr, Carlisle say thero i scarcely
the aemblano of truth in any of these
" atatements. except the one that ne ap-
. roared : before ttoe senate committee
'- oa" finance when - the Shrman amnd
mnt was under consideration' and rec
ommended its adoption,, and if Senator
'Frye. had added that he (Carlisle), con
tinued to aonrove it and atiU approves
it he wuld.liav .t1
Mr. Carlisle sax the Sherman amend
ment did not contain any provision re
quiring all our money to be kept at
a parity with gold, nor any provision
for the redemption in. gold as asserted
by Senator Frye. The act of 1876
authorized the issue of bonds" for ''the
purpose only of providing for the re
demption of greenbacks and according
to the Sherman amendment the pro
ceeds of the proposed pr oent. bonds
could be used in no other way. The aot
of July, 1890, authorised the secre
tory of the treasury to redeem treasury
notes issued in the purchase of silver
bullion, in gold or silver coin, and this
has been costrued to mean mat ne
might use for that purpose any gold
in the - treasury. As the amendment
left the original bond provision of the
resumption act in fullforoe and merely
'conferred additional authority to issue
shorter bonds bearing lower interest
Mr. Carlisle heartily favored it. When
the sundry civil appropriation bill was
returned to the house from the seSate
t contained more than 240 amendments
and th opponents of the bond amend
ment threatened if that amendment
was insisted upon to defeat the entire
bill by contesting eacn amenumeni
thus consuming the time until congress
would expire by limitation of law and
defeatng Other important legislation.
-Mr Carlisle says he then carefully ex
amined the statutes relating to financial
matters, "and concluded that authority
already existed to issue and sell bonds
and to use the proceeds for redemption
pruposes. ' He thereupon sent a tele
gram to a rnmber of the committee on
appropriations stating that he did not
consider the amendmen of sufficient im
portance to Justify a contest, which
might result in the defeat of the bill,
and other necessary legislation. Noth
ing hi telegram indicated disapproved
of the amendment and he never wrote
a letter on the subject As to the third
statement vMr. Carlisle says he never
gave out. such an interview; In the only
statement given out by hi men the sub
ject of ' redemption tie said that- the
secretary of the treasury had been pay
lng gold for the coin treasury notes
Issued for the purchase of silver bul
lion, and would continue to do so as long
as he had gold lawfully available for
' that purpose. The purpose of the gov
eminent to maintain the parity- of the
two' metals by all lawful means would
not b abandoned under any circum
stance. Afterwards the president made
a statement to the same effect ; .. n.
The practice of paying out gold to all
who demand ; it baa been continued
; ever since. ' r ' i -4
Mr. Carlisle call attention to die fact
Chat after, he became secretary t mid
reserve Increased from about $101,000,000
to nearly $108,000,000, and during the
five' months preceding, his qualification
as secretary, withdarwala-of gold from
the treasury .tor export aggregated $36,
046,000,. and that during the first five
months after he took charge $36,620,000.
He says that ft is difficult to find any
'justification for Senator Frye' etate
ment that anything said or done by him
(Carlisle) caused the exportation ot gold
from the country. . . :

ceedings. Th railroad company was
represented by President Corey, Secre
tary Dodge Rid Attorney S. Harrison
Wagner. These gentlemen stated to
the seleotmen that th road wa a pub'
lio necessity and that fully. nine-tenths
of the property owner of Towneend
avenue had signed the petition. They
kalso agreed to leave the roadbed in
better condition than it was at pres
ent. '., -
Among the property owners who
were present to favor the granting ot
the petition, were: F. W. Chattertdn,
Lucas C. Porter, William Roberts, A.

' The petition was ; strenuously op
posed by Franck C. Bushnell, C. G.
Klmberly, John Rowe, ' L. Wheeler
Beecher, Colonel 8. B. Fox and Wil
liam Sullivan. They claimed that
there was no necessity for a track on
Townsend avenue, owing to the prox
imity of a track on a neighboring
street and that an good driveways
were a scarcity in the vicinity of the
city, Townsend avenue should be re
served tor driving purposes. William

of the petition, on substantially the

Finally after a lengthy meeting the
selectmen in executive session gave
the petitioner leave to withdraw.

Very Gratifying Praettoe Don Yesterday..
The Brilliant Flaying.
The practice at the field yesterday
was one of the most successful of the
season, as it was also the . last ' secret
practice beginning Monday. The chief
features yesterday were the brilliant
playing of Hlnkey,. Butterworth and
Wade, the new half-back.. An especial-,
ly brilliant end rush was made by Hln
key, who aroused the .spectators to a
high pitch of enthusiasm by leaping
over one of the tackles In the same
manner as at the last Springfield game.
Wade '96, who was taken to the training
table last week,, Is one of the most
promising of Tale's football men. - The
only, fault which mars his playing is
his high and Ineffectual tackling. The
chief fault of the team as a whole seems
to be the fumbling when the ball is
kicked. "v , .
The team will play Brown this after
noon at Providence, Yale's men lining
VP as follows: Xb- Hlnkey, right endi
Murphy, right tackle; W..O. Hickok,
right guard; Stiilman, center; McCrea,
left guard; Beard, left tackle; F. A.
Hlnkey, left end; Adee, quarter-back;
Mill, half-back; Thorne, half-back;
Butterworth, full-back. .

A very entbuslsstto republican rally
wa held at the Memorial- hal)' in
North Haven, last evening, which was
largely attended by th resident ot
the town. General E D. 8. Goodyear
was the presiding officer of the meet
ing. He Introduced Senator Hawley,
who wa the principal speaker of the
evening. In his speeech, which wa of
two hour' duration, be fully reviewed
the political situation and arraigned
the democratic party for the stand
they had taken in the Nicaragua oanal
matter, and the Samoan and Hawatlan
difficulties. "There was no use," he
said, "of the democratlo party making
such baste to repeal the Sherman bill..
Wbat they ought to have done wa to
have taken up the tariff question im
mediately. Now Mr. Wllsoni the
framer of the bill that was finally
passed, was not qualified to draw up
a bill ot that sort. He knew nothing
about a New England community: He
Is a man of books, a doctrinaire, a
college professor. His wisdom Is aca
demic, not practical. Jones of Arkan
sas, Vest of Missouri and Mills of
Texas, who also were on tbe committee
having charge of the bill, were purely
theorists. I devoted a great deal of
attention to getting the income, tax
taken off from the dividends from de
posits in our savings banks. There
are $138,000,000 deposited in our savings
banks in this state, the average deposit
being $292. The democrat proposed to
put a 2 per cent tax on this, which
would have yielded $106,000 - to the
United State government They also
wanted to tax the building and loan
associations. And we had to elabor-i.
ately explain to them that such asso
ciations had no dividends.
"The question is whether you have
learned anything during the past two
years or whether you want to submit
your industrial vitals for further ex
periment to the surgeon."
"The thing for you all to do Is to
us your influence and - votes .toward
sending Mr. Sperry to Washington.",
After a song well sung by the North
Haven Glee club, Arthur McLean; of
Anaemia -made a rousinc republican
speech, rin'i whteh andioat the
workthgmen of the Naugatuck valley
were going to. send a petition to con
gress, which wears boots. It was 'of
about N. D. Sperry's else., :

made 'by Attorney Edward L. I4ns)ey

as follows: , ' " '
"Out In that part of the state of Ohio
where the religious sect, called . Dun
kards live it is the custom for the min
ister to get up and open the Bible at
random and read the first verse on'
which his eye rest and to continue
reading It until the spirit moves him
to preach. An old preacher once opened
to the Becond chapter of the Song of
Solomon, where It says "And the voloe
of the turtle was heard In the land."
He read it again and still the inspira
tion did not come. He read it a third
time, and then the light broke In upon
him. He said: '"All scripture Is given
to us for doctrine. In this case there
is one fundamental doctrine of our
faith. We can almost see the turtle
sunning himself upon a log. . Someone
comes along. Splash! He Is in the
water. Now that is baptism. s ' '
"It is in Just about this way that the
democratlo free trader Invents theories
out of mere nothing and twists facts
to their own purposes. There is a great
contest between the republican and
dmocratlc parties., One or the other
must win, and I am a republican, i They
used to try and tell one's future In
olden times by the stars in the ascend

night in 1857 when I first opened my
eyes to the world in yonder house there
must have been a publican star In

father religiously voted the republican
ticket and it was at that election that
Buckingham was elected governor of
Connecticut and Beach representative

"I well remember the story told by
Rev. Dr. Phillips of New Haven at this
Memorial hall two years ago. . He told
Of an experience meeting In .which one
brother arose and said that ' he was
going on the heavenly course in a full
rigged sailing vessel. The next brother
asserted that he . was on the. same
course, only he was on a twin-screw
steamer. An old lady then arose and
said she had been on the heavenly road
forty yean and that she had walked
that line to the end. It took blood to
do It- Your brothers and your kin shed
their blood to preserve the principles
which the republican party has always
upheld.. The republican- party has re-;

greater part of the national debt, , ,

Philadelphia, Nov. I Robert J.,whos
pacing mark, 1:01 1-2, 1 th sensation of
the year, was sent against his record to- j
day at the Point Breese track, but the
best be could do was $.06. Prior to the
trial Robert J. met John R. Gentry,
1:0$ $-4, In 4 ma toa for a purse ot
$1,000. Robert J. won two heats rather
easily in 1:0$ and 1:11 1-2, and then
Gentry was drawn because of a cut on
bis foreleg, which Injury ha bothered
the tallfon more or less all season.
The fact that the strings of Monroe
Salisbury, C. J. Hamlin and M. E. Mo
Henry were to compete attracted 2,000
persons to the track. The first race
was the 1:01 trot with Arbte, 1:08 1-1,
Phoebe Wilkes, 1:08 1-2, and Nightingale
2:10 1-2 as starters. Phoebe Wilkes was
the choice ot the talent Asote took the
lead at the start In the first heat and
led throught, winning by five lengths
from.. Nightingale, with favorite six
lengths behind. The second and third
heat were a repetition of the first, so
far a Asote was concerned, but the
others" alternated In finishing second
and third. After the first heat Azote
was the favorite, -
The easy manner in which the Salis
bury gelding beat his field caused a
cessation of pool selling after the sec
ond heat The pacing cracks appeared
at 2 o'clock and both were liberally ap
plauded. Geers was behind Robert J.
and MoHenry dro Jen try. The horses
got away on the second score and Gen
try took the lead. At Che quarter pole
Gentry was half a length to the good,
but when Robert J. drew up and the
pair together at the half, at which
point the gelding led by a heat. In the
next 'quarter Robert J. Increased his
lead to a length, and on the stretch
he made the gap wider, winning by
three lengths In 2:08. The time by
quarters wsas: 32 1-2, 1:13 1-2, 1:34, 2:08.
The pools prior-to this heat sold at
$26 for Robert J. and $10 for Gentry.
In the second and last h'eat Gentry was
not a factor, Robert J. winnlg In a
walk by six full lengths, in 2:12 1-2.
After the first heat Robert J. brought
$26 In the pools against $S for Gentry.
When Gentry had been drawn Robert

was 31 8-4, 1 :03 1-2, 1:84 14, 2 :06.
' There were eight starters In the 2:19

Th Grand Operatic Concert last Evening
A Larue and Brilliant Audience.
A large audience was present at the
Hyperion last evening to heat' Mme.
Melba, assisted by a number f New
York erttsts. In an oeratlo ooncert The
entrance of Malba was the signal for an
outburst of applause. Her first n umber,
"Ah, Forse e Lul" for Verdi's "Tra
vlata," was well rendered, tfcough in
this number she seemed to possess no
warmth or pathos. But in the valse, "Se
Saran Rose," by Ardltl. her voice broke
forth from Its previous-seeming fetter
full Of fire, love and feeling.So deafen
ing was the applause that Melba was
obliged to repeat this number before her
listeners would be pacified. Jn Haaers
"Sweet Bird" the true value of her re
markable powers of vooallzation were
brought forth. The difficult thrills, ca
dences, and staccato passages were
most marvelous to listen to, and the
range and power of her voice seemed to
have no limit No sooner had she fin
ished this number than the most thun
dering plaudits broke forth from her ap
preciative listeners. She responded with
a most touching rendition of "Swanee
River." Melba more than satisfied her
listeners, and it Is safe to say that she
possesses one of the grandest operatlo
soprano voices ever heard in this country.-
Sharing equally the honors of the ev
ening was M. Flannon, the renowned
French basso. His selections, "Au
Brlnt," by Gounod, and "The Two Gren
adiers," Schumann, were elegantly ren
dered. In the lattar number the true
French spirit showed itself, and In the
most fiery and patriotic style. M. Plan
con sang Schumann's ballad In a man
ner which the author meant It should be
sung. "Bravo," after "bravo" rang from
every nook of the Hyperion, and like a
true artist M. Planoin graciously re
peated the same. Mme. Scalchl, the
well known contralto, has lost none of
her magnetic powers which lay in her
voice. She won a warm place In every
heart from the moment uhe began to
sing. In response to an encore, after
the rendition of an aria from Gluok's
"Orfoe," she sang the "Gavotte" from
"Mlgnon" In a most captivating man
ner. M. Mangulere, the tenor, In a bar
carolle from "Fra Diavolo," was very
unsatisfactory, but In the role of
"Faust" he was acceptable. The or
chestra, under the direction of Signor
Bevignanl, played with good style and
taste, rendering the accompaniments
for the vocalists in excellent m&nner.
The fifth act of "Faust" was admtra
My given by Melba, K. Plancon and M,
Mangulere, but some little "hitch" in
dropping the curtain caused some un
certainty to the audience whether the
act was finished or not. The piano solo
of Miss Gertrude Betz was not worthy
of mention.

Booalved by th Vwtrjr Laat Night A
FarUh Meeting Called for Next frklay
Evenlng-Dr. HarwooeVa Lou and BrU
llant Pastorate.
Rev. Dr. Ha r wood, for tblrty-slx year
reotor of Trinity Episcopal church, ten
dared to tb vestry of that church hi
resignation last evening. This step I
not altogether surprise to member
ot the church, as the doctor has con
tmplated this move for a long time,
as he bas passed th allotted threescore
and ten years and his health Is not oj
the best; although he has lost none ot
his pulpit power and eloquence. The
vestry ha called a meeting to be held
on Friday evening ot next week at
which action will be taken on hi resign
nation and a to the appointment of sj
Dr. Harwood, It Is understood, ban
arrived at thl decision only after much)
thought on the matter and is Arm in '
his Intention.
Thi news will cause much regret Id
the parish where he ha passed to many
ot the best years of hi Ufa He ranks
among the ablest scholars and preach
ers of the denomination, and his name:
is well known not only In this state,
but also throughout the whole coun
try. His sermon are all fine literary)
specimens and have won him distln
gulshed honors. ' . - ;
In the 142 years of the history ofl
Trinity church there have been only
four rectors, one of whom, Rev. Henry)
Whltlock, served only eighteen months,
so that the terms of the remaining)
three Rev. Belah Hubbard, Rev. Dr,
Harry Croswell and- Dr. Harwood-
cover nearly all of that long period.
Rev. Henry Whttlock died after serve
lng about eighteen months, at Fayo

A Irgw Republican Rally Held L.lt Even
That the republican ot the Ninth!
and Tenth wards are In the game ton
business was shown by the enthusiastic!
rally last evening in the Masonic hall
on Webster street The hall was pack
ed and all the good points of the speak
ers were vociferously . endorsed by the
most enthusiastic appSause. Lyman H,
Johnson, ohalrman of the ward com
mlttee, was unable to be present, and!
George H Loveland war -appointed!
ohalrman of the meeting. .
The. principal speaker of the evening
was Alderman Keyea of the Tenth "
ward. He touched chiefly upon nation
al issues, saying that the state Issuea
even in this campaign are secondary)
and are really involved in the greateo
ones which affect the whole country,
Mr. Keyes asserted that President
Cleveland himself doubted, when hsj
came to the head of the government,
the ability of the democratic party tq
administer the government of the na
tlon and so came into the republican!
ranks for his chief lieutenant. When!
James G. Blaine was at the head of tha
state department his policy commanded
the respect not only of his own coun
trymen, but that of every civilized na
tion on the earth, while on the othe
hand, with the Inauguration of tha
democratlo power came the disgraceful
Hawaiian policy, which made our gov
ernment the laughing stock of tha)
world. Until Cleveland was elected ou.
industries were in a thtriing condU
tion, but immediately upon t)'e. acces
ston of democratlo misrule th,-e was a
trembling at the foundations of the)
country like an earthquake, and busU
ness tumbled into chaos and confusion.
Their Inability to rule the. country has
been shown to them, and it b now time)
to repair as much as possible the great!
damage done. Th speaker also touch-
ed upon other questions at issue and
highly lauded the republican nominees.
Other speakers were Mr. Frederioid
Orr, Samuel Lochman, . Livingston W.
Cleaveland, candidate for Judge of pro
bate, and Richard H. Tyner, an 64
whom presented the political situations
in a very comprehensive manner. Dur
ing the Intervale between the different
speakers some very nice music was dis
coursed by the Star-Joker Mandolin
club. . .
At Tale Art School. '
Many art lovers availed themselves;
yesterday of the opportunity of seeing
the beautiful designs at the Yale Art)
School. There are two plotures. that
should be seen particularly for theln
methods. One Is the "Sphinx by Moon
light," a pen and ink drawing, and the
other a pencil drawing on canvas, both
by F. U. DuMond. The former, pie
ture took scleral months to finish,
while in the latter he uses both black!
and white -lines. The whole exhibit 14
a great attraction to art lovers. - .-,
