GROWTH OF RANSOM FUND
$50,574.01 RECEIVED UP XO LATE
Bush of Contribution Over Because of
the General Opinion That the Critical
Moment Hai Been Averted by the Re
ported Extension of Time Granted by
Mln Stone's Abduotors No Confirma
tion, However, of the Report.
Boston, Oct. S. No additional state
ment of money received for the ran
som fund for Miss Stone was given out
by Kidder, Peabody & Co. after the
one of the late afternoon showing $49,
674.61 in cash and $7,000 in unpaid
pledges. This made the total $56,574.61,
to which will be added in the morning
the sums received over night. The
rush of contributors is over, because
of the general opinion that the critical
moment has been averted and that a
month's time offers ample opportunity
to add to the fund.
Charles A. Stone, brother of the cap
tive missionary, wishes activity" for the
fund to continue for a few days longer.
He hopes that the cable dispatches in
' dlcating that the brigands have grant
ed a month's time are right, although
he has no personal confirmation of that
fact, having repeatedly sent messages
to both Constantinople and Samokox.
He say that the idea in the west that
he had stated that no more money is
needed because enough has been given
is wrong. He Is still anxious about
getting the total of $110,000.
Next Saturday will be Miss Stone's
twenty-third anniversary of her sailing
from Boston for the missionary fields in
which was attended by eight members
of the committee and four officers. The
report of the gentlemen sent to Wash
ington was received, and after full de
liberation it was decided that, while we
could not recede from the action of last
Friday, the tidings of the government
made it most evident that the first
thing was to secure Miss Stone's safe
ty, then other steps would follow;
therefore we felt that, as individuals, it
was our duty and privilege to help by
all means in our power the securing of
this ransom from the general public.
Communications were sent by tele
gram, so far as possible, to every part
of the country, even the Pacific coast.
Money in sums largs and small have
been received in anawer to this appeal
for humanity. The government has
showed its supreme interest in this
mpttw hv nlroarlv hpoomine the custo
dians of this fund aa handed to them
by Kidder, Peabody & Co. This plan
not only shows the government's inter
est, but It guards any possibility that
any part of the money will be paid over
until mIbh Stnno herself has been placed
in safety in the hands of the proper au
t win ho kppti from the above state
ment that the board has been a unit in
its whoie action from the beginning ana
consistent throughout. Its officers and
friends are willing to use every effort
to procure this fund under the condi
tions and limitation given. Any one
who had been present at the conference
in Washington would not hesitate to
have full confidence in the govern
ment's efforts. The officials of the
board, having been received into its
confidence, are willing to trust the gov
ernment: we, in turn, have no doubt
that the friends of the board will have
confidence in us,
THE EPISCOPA L CONVENTION.
STATEMENT BY AMERICAS HOARD
Facta in the Case of Miss Stone The
Hartford, Oct. 8. After devotional
exercises at this evening's session of
the American Board, President S. B.
Capen, IL. D., read the official report
of the board concerning the captivity
and ransom of Miss Ellen M. Stone.
The report was as follows:
There is such universal Interest in the
case of Miss Ellen M. Stone, now In the
hands of the brigands, that it seems
wise for the officers of the board to
make a brief statement of the facts as
they exist at the present time. For
several weeks the government authori
ties at Washington have been at work
using every possible effort to secure her
release. These have been days of deep
anxiety for the officers of the board.
We have been in frequent communica
tion with our -representative In Con
stantinople. Last Thursday we receiv
ed a dispatch from Washington which
told us how increasingly grave the sit
uation had become. On the receipt of
meetlne of the pruden
tial committee was hastily called to
meet the following day at 12 o'clock.
The committee came together and con
sidered the situation most thoroughly.
On the one side was the life of a dearly
beloved missionary: on the other side
was the fact that if we yielded to this
demand for ransom it was putting a
premium on the lives of every mission
ary of the American board, and not of
our board only, but the missionaries of
every society in the world. The ques
tion was even brosjder than the case of
missionaries; it practically concerned
the safety of any and every American
citizen. Recognizing the full gravity
of the situation, the committee, without
a dissenting vote, decided that it had
no right to pay a ransom and establish
a precedent which would be sure to be
dangerous in all the future. Further
more, we were restrained by the fur
ther fact that we had no funds that
could be employed for this purpose. The
government was restrained from paying
the money by constitutional limitation
and the American board seemed equally
restrained from paying a ransom.
The solicitude of the committee was
euch and their purpose to do everything
possible was so strong that they sent a
deputation, consisting of the president
and one of the secretaries, to Wash
ington to meet President Roosevelt and
the officials of the state department.
This conference was held last Saturday
forenoon. It is impossible to over
state the sympathy and interest of the
president, the acting secretary of state
and other officials.
The conference was lengthy, during
which time the government showed
what steps it was taking, and how ev
ery power of diplomacy was being used
to effect the release of Miss Stone. Con
fidential details were given, which of
course is a breach of trust for us to give
to the public, but the friends of the
board and the whole nation can be as
sured that everything conceivable is be
ing done to further the recovery of Miss
Stone. The heart and the persistence
of the president in this effort were most
significant. They assured us that ap
parently at the moment the only prac
ticable method to secure her life was
to have the funds promptly at hand to
pay the ransom. It was evidently the
positive conviction of the government
that this step was the first one to be
taken. But it ought to be clearly un
derstood that this is but one step; that
when she is released there will be a vig
orous attempt not only to secure tho re
turn of the money, but furthermore, to
bring about such conditions that such
an occurrence shall not be possible in
the future. No one doubts that our
government as at present organized
will not drop this matter until the
rights of American citizenship are es
Meanwhile a movement was begun,
under the leadership of the family of
Miss Stone, to secure by popular appeal
the amount of the ransom, and notices
had already been sent that funds could
be sent to Kidder, Peabody & Co., of
Boston, who had consented to act as
treasurer of the fund.

ment 1 meeting of the prudential com-jnlttee-
was called on Sabbath morning,
Huntington Amendment Defeated-Mls-take
In Conntlng Vote.
San Francisco. Oct. 8. The feature
of to-day's sessions of the triennial
Episcopal convention was the recon
sideration and defeat of what is known
as the Huntington amendment to the
constitution, which was adopted by the
house of deputies yesterday providing
for the use of modified forms of wor
ship by congregations willing to accept
the spiritual oversight of a bishop. An
error was discovered in recording the
vote of the Nebraska delegation, which
had been entered In favor of the amend
ment, whereas a poll of the members
showed that they were opposed to the
This led to a demand for a reconsid
eration of yesterday's vote. The vote
on reconsideration resulted as follows:
AyeClerical, 28; lay, 18. Nay Clerical,
33; lay, 12. Divided Clerical, 13; lay,

as of each order being required, the

Washington, Oct. 8. There were two
new witnesses before the Schley court ,
of inquiry to-day. . They were Com- j
mander Richard Walnwright, who com- !

Spain, and Lieutenant M. L. Bristol, :

that period. i
Lieutenant Bristol had not concluded

of his testimony turning on a chart ne

his memorv. the oositions of the vari

July 3. There were several spirited
controversies between counsel over
questions asked the witness by Mr.
Rayner concerning this chart.
Commander Wainwright's testimony
dealt largely with chart making. He
who for a time senior member of the
board of navigators which prepared tha
official chart showing tne position ui

off Santiago, and he gave details of the
method of its preparation. He said he

Lieutenant Bristol speaking of the
blockade off Cienfuegos, said that dur
ing the day the ships lay from five to
ten miles from the shore, steaming In
nearer at night, then going farther out
and returning nearer at daybreak. He
observed, he said, the signal lights on
the shore near Cienfuegos, but did not
understand their significance. With re
spect to coaling he said that on one oc
casion while off Cienfuegos, Captain
Phillip signalled to the flagship that he
considered it dangerous to put the col
lier between the Texas and the Iowa,
"meaning by that," said the. witness,
"that it was dangerous to put the col

of the weather." - He also told of the

New York, Oct. 8. Sir Thomas Lip
ton said to-day that the Shamrock
would be laid up for the winter at Erie
Basin, and not. at New London, as
originally intended. The tall steel mast
will ha taken out and all her other
spars taken on shore and stored for the
winter. By reason of the great height
of the mast, the yacht will eltner have
to sail around Long Island in the
epring, to get into the sound or fit out
at City Island, for tne spar is too long
to go under the Brooklyn bridge at any
stage of the tide.
A member of the New York Yacht
club, who is prominent in racing, said
to-night: "If the Shamrock should
meet the Columbia and Constitution in
the smooth water on the sound next
summer, I feel sure she would win a
number of races, and that would give
yachting in this country a big boom."
There is thought to be no doubt but
that the Larchmont, Seawanhaka and
other Sound clubs would offer prizes
for the ninety foot yachts, and invite
the Shamrock to compete for them. Sir
Thomas and his friends believe there is
a great deal more speed in the Sham
rock than has been shown and they are
willing to try her against any ninety

No Surrender by Bngland-What It
Actually Provides. i.
Washington, Oct. S. There has been
no surrender by England to the United
States in the matter of the new Isth
mian canal treaty,- according to the
best authority possible. It is said to
be eaually true that the United States
has sacrificed no principle in these ne
gotiations and the effect of contrary
.istommta is deorecated as likely se
riously to jeopardize the chances of the
consummation of the convention which
shall finally and peacefully settle an
issue that has been a source of danger
foV the past fifty years.
It is said that what actually has hap
pened is that each side has perceived
the underlying principle of the Clayton
Bulwer treaty and the new convention
will provide a waterway, neutral at all
times and open to commerce of the
world. The Clayton-Bulwer treaty,
however, drawn half a century ago,
has proved to be defective in mechan-.
ism for giving effect to this purpose.
The new treaty simply provides this
mechanism. England Is relieved from,
the guarantee, which in her case was
only troublesome and which being as
sumed by the United States in toto is
quite as effective. As viewed from the
American point of view even, there was
no surrender on England's part in
seeking this reliei inasmuch as the
above mentioned principle Is reiterated
and affirmed as binding upon the Unit
ed States. As for the form of the
treaty it may be stated that it em
bodies in substance, the amendments
to the Hay-Pauncefote treaty which
were adopted by the senate and beyond
that, the changes are believed t ) be
textual rather than substantial.
