New York, Sept. 7. Roger C. Sulli van, member from Illinois of the dem ocratic national committee, to-night is sued a lengthy statement in which he replies to the recent attacks made up on him by Mr. Bryan. The following ia an abstract of Mr. Sullivan's re marks: "In his Jefferson club banquet speech at Chicago Tuesday evening William J. Bryan again saw fit to make me the ex cuse for exploiting his new ambition to convert the democratic party of the United States into an autocracy, with himself on the dictator's throne. "If portions of Mr. Bryan's speech mean anything, they mean that he rotould' rather have his own way than liave democrats elected to congress or eny other office. He has invited all Illinois democrats who agree with him In his opposition to me to bolt their ticket. If there are any democrats in Illinois who are disposed to act on this typically Bryanesque advice, many of them unfortunately will be found in congressional districts which are close, Imt in which, with united effort, we liave a good chance to elect democratic congressmen. If these districts send republicans to the next national house of representatives, the democratic par ty of" the nation will have Mr. Bryan to thank. As a democrat I regret that Mr. Bryan's rule-or-ruin disposition has led him to make such fisuse of his in fluence. "But in so far as Mr. Bryan's ban quet speech applies to me personally, to my character, to my business, to my associates, to my democracy and to my political acts, I welcome the issue, and nn that issue I challenge Mr. Bryan to the proof of his truthfulness, his hon ! ?sty and his sincerity that sincerity ! which, he boasts; is his political asset. I yield to no man in my adherence to ! democratic principles as laid down by j the great - founder Thomas Jefferson. 1 'Judged by that standard, I invite com '. parison of my democracy with Mr. j Bryan's." " , Continuing Mr. Sullivan scores Mr. i tBryan for the "company he keeps," ! and attacks particularly the charactert ' of Theodore Nelson, Judge Owen P. Thompson, Millard Fillmore Dunlap ! and Henry T. Rainey. These are the , in en endorsed toy Mr. Bryan in a re jeent Paris interview. Mr. Sullivan de j clares Mr. Bryan was not honest when i Hie commissioned these men to "purify" Illinois politics, defies Mr. Bryan to . show anything wrong with his Chicago ig'as connection and continues: Bryan's speeCMFW X9i&XZ& j ' "The very first paragraph in Mr. Bryan's speech on me and on the 1111 iititois situation contains a deliberate un truth. Practically every succeeding par agraph contains either a deliberate un truth or an equivocation of the kind . (that we expect only from the shifty rword juggling pettlfoger." i Mr. Sullivan declares that Mr. Bry an's assertion that he held his seat on the national committee by fraud was refuted two years ago at St. Louis by the national convention itself, and that he, Sullivan, had not asked for an 'endorsement from the state convention instead of resigning in "the interests of itlie party," as Bryan said he had. ' - 'Mr. Bryan says: 'I examined into ; Sils (Sullivan's) conduct of the Spring field convention before I took part In (the attempt to unseat him, and at the St. Louis convention I had in writing . a request for his repudiation signed iby : Snore than half the delegates to the 1 ronventlon.' That statement is not i true. Mr. Bryan knows it was not true when he made It. 'Mr. Bryan's statement that he had Hn writing a request signed by more -.. than half the delegates to the Spring field convention is a statement that has been made before. I was at the Et. Louis convention, and its truth was there challenged. Mr. Bryan has never Substantiated it .with evidence. .-. "Mr. Bryan and his associates In that contest at St. Louis made the sta-te- i ment that some 500 delegates in the Epringfield convention signed petitions lor letters repudiating the action of the . convention. They never presented to the committee on credentials of the na tional convention any such number. JThey presented some. The other side . Et the same time presented telegrams . land affidavits certifying that nearly all i of the signatures presented by Mr. ! Eiryan and his associates were for- J geries. . ' "The discussion of the Springfield iconvention and its action from Mr ; Jiryan's side is always coupled with the inuendo that the elements of the ! party with wlhch I was connected per- petrated a fraud by unseating hundreds of legally elected delegates. That in uendo is false in inspiration and false tn the suggestion It conveys." "Mr. Bryan says: 'My political asset Is the confidence the people have in my ; sincerity. "Mr. Bryan has twice led the demo cratic party to defeat, the second a iworso defeat than the first. If he is proud of that evidence of the people's confidence in his sincerity he is wel come to It. But his boast of sincerity merits further consideration. He in sinuates that I make money out of pol- (Continued on Second Page.) MAYFLOWER SOCIETY. Genernl Congress Concludes Its Fourth Triennial Session. Plymouth, Mass., Sept. 7.-The gener al congress of the Society of Mayflower Descendants concluded its fourth trien nial session here to-day Short address es by delegates were made at a social meeting in the morning, while the aft ernoon was taken up with visits to his toric sites and a concluding business cession. J. H. Sears of the Cape Cod Memorial association proposed that each state society of Mayflower De scendants be represented by tablets on the Pilgrim monument, which is to be erected at Provlncetown. A resolution endorsing this proposal was carried. The congress decided to investigate as to whether it was practicable to gain control of the estate In Scrooby, England, where the Pilgrims organized their church, and to learn under what conditions such control could be secur ed and maintained.". Speakers at the meeting were Herbert Jenney of Ohio, Captain Lorenzo D. Baker of Massachusetts, Judge Shepa'rd of the District of Columbia, Mr. Case of Illinois, and A. L. Talbot of Maine.

BISHOP M'CABE REPLIES. Z OES NOT EXPLAIN EXPLICITLY SEASON FOR QUITTING. Simply Declares He Has Not Attended Meetings of International Policy holders Because It Has Been Impos sibleSeven Funerals in the Family of Himself and Wife in the Lnxt Two Years, ChilHcothe, O.. ept. 7.-Blshop Mc- Caibe, ,who is here presiding over the conference of Ohio Methodists, when asked to-day concerning the action of the international policyholders' com mittee of the Mew York Life in reliev ing him of further service on the com mittee, said:' "I have been too busy with church conferences to keep posted with what was going on. I cannot help the ac tion of the committee, but I insist that the administration ticket is made up of honorable men. You may say for me that they cannot beat it. "Here Is a letter from Thomas A. Buckner of the New York Life prais ing me for investigating conditions, and finding that the administration is all right. 'The reason I have not attended the commttee meetings is because it has been impossible for me to get away. In the past two years there have been several funerals In the family of my self and wife, and I have been unable even to bury my dead on account of the conferences." FIRE IN OAS WORKS.

BOTH CREWS PRIMED FOR THE RACE TO-DAY SMASH PRECEDENT AND GO OS QUE RIVER FOR PR AC-TICE. Cambridge Men Out First and Do Two Minute Row at the Rate of Thlrty - eight Strokes to the Minute Great Interest In the Race Excusiou Trains to be Run Ciiptaln Fllley to Keep the American Blades. Putney, Eng., Sept. 7. Breaking the almost universal custom of English university bat races to rest quietly the day preceding the contest, both the Harvard and Cambridge crews indulg ed to-day in short practice In the pres ence of thousands of rowing enthusi asts gathered on the banks of the riv er. The Cambridge men were out first and did a two minute row at the rate of thirty-eight strokes to the minute. A little later Harvard had a minute's row at the rate of forty strokes to the minute. They soon slackened the stroke, however, but rowed for a few minutes at thirty-six strokes. Neither crew gave the slightest sign of stale ness, all being in the pink of condi tion, and the Importance of the strug gle, quite aside from the international character, give an interest quite ex ceeding that of any previous contest. The last few hours before the con test see a great increase in the inter est in the race. Thousands of tickets have been issued for places on the Barnes railway bridge, which marks the commencement of the final reach; and late this evening many Americans vainly endeavored to get seating ac commodations near the finish. The Mortlake Railway companies will run excursion trains from all points, and to-morrow being a general half holiday, there is certain to be a record crowd. The official betting prices still favor Cambridge, but the moment American money Is offered the betting becomes even. In the matter of weight the crews are pretty evenly matched. In height the Harvard men are the more level, the tallest being 6 feet, 1 Inch, and the shortest 5 feet, 9 1-2 inches. Of the ICambride men, the tallest is Raynes, 6 feet, 5 Inches, and the shortest Ban ham, 5 feet, 8 1-2 inches. Captain Filley of the Harvard crew says that after trying Ayilng's English oars, which ho found very good, he thought it wiser to keep to the Amer ican blades, to which his men are ac customed. For the first time flags will be drop ped at salient points on the course, and If a record is being made It will have to beat 3 minutes, 52 seconds to the mile, 7 minutes, 11 seconds at Ham mersmith bridge, 11 minutes, 15 sec onds at Cheswiek steps, 15 minutes, 34 seconds at Barnes bride, and 18 mill' utes, 47 seconds at the finish. Coach Wray js perfectly satisfied with the capabilities and endurance of his crew, and thinks they have more than an even chance of winning. Harvard's captain is also confident, and says that if the Americans are beaten it will not be until the finish of the race. Dr. Goldsmith, president of Cam bridge university, said to-day that he thought the Englishmen would win, but that there would not be much space between the boats at the finish. He considered the Harvard crew as a much stronger lot of men than this year's Oxfords, and he. was satisfied that the former would "row it out to the end of the race. Dr. Goldsmith expects the Cambridge men to take a slight lead at the start, but he believes the struggle will be close. Ambassador and Mrs. Whltelaw Reld will follow the race in a launch char tered by Harvard and Cambridge for the accommodation of their friends. The Harvard men, who have arrang- ed to sail for home September 15 on board the Amoircan line steamer St Louis, will spend Sunday at Cambridge and go to W rest Park on Monday as the guests of Ambassador and Mrs. Reid. Whatever may be the result of the race, it is likely to have an important bearing on the future of English boat building. The introduction of the swiv el oarlock Is almost certain. It is used already by all English scullers and has been advocated by prominent boat builders here, who, however, have been (Continued on Second Page.)

It will have a seating capacity of over 300. The windows are at pres ent filled with plain cathedral glass, but it is hoped in time to have this re placed by stained memorial windows. The inside furniture will be of fine oak and will be furnished by the well- known church furnishers . of Boston, Messrs. Irving and Casslon.

Curtis and General S. E. Merwin. Guilford Man Dies Suddenly. Guilford, Sept. 7.-William Dowd, a former warden of this town, died sud denly to-day of heart disease. Mr. Dowd was giving his horse a drink near the green when he bent forward, resting his arms on hi3 knees. Persons in the vicinity noticed that he did not move for several moments and went over to his team, finding Mr. Dowd al most dead. He was taken to a local physician's, but died in less than an hour. Mr. Dowd was seventy-six years old, and leaves a widow and one daugh ter Mrs. LoUis Anderson of this place. Child Fnlls Five Stories May l,ve. New York, Sept. 7. - Edmund Muns, three years old, who live on the top floor of a five story tenement house in West Forty-ninth street, was sitting on the window sill on the fifth floor of his residence, calling to some play mate in the yard below, when he lost his balance and fell to the ground. For tunately there was a number of clothes lines intertwined and reaching down to the ground, and these considerably brokethe force of the little fellow's fall. Us it was when Dr. Parker of Roose velt hospital, examined the child hasti ly, he found it suffering from a fracture of the left leg and ankle, and contu sions of the head. He was taken to the hospital in a seriou3 condition. PEACE OVERTURES ARE BY REFUSES TO ENTER INTO ANY ARRANGEMENT FOR AN ARMISTICE. Ills Answer to the Government's An nouncement of Its Readiness to Grant B Ten-Day Armistice is the Blowing Up of Two Bridges In Connection Xtllh Guerra's Attitude it Is Notlce uble That Liberals Have Grown More Independent. Havana, Sept. 7. All peace overtures are blocked by the refusal of Pino Guerra, the insurgent leader In Pinar del Rio province, to enter into any ar rangement for an armistice. Guerra's answer to the government's announce ment of its readiness to grant a ten-day armistice is the blowing up of two bridges on the Western railway, the cutting, of railway communication be yond Pinar del Rio city and an attack on San Juan de Martinez. It is believ ed here to-night that San Juan de Mar tinez is in the hands of the insurgents and that the garrison, containing 100 new recruits fand a srnull force o mounted rural guards, has been defeat ed or captured. The fact that other leaders of the in surrection are willing to agree to an armistice can have little effect so long as Guerra is determined to prosecute the war, and there is slight doubt in any quarter that Guerra can control the situation in his region. His force is reported by all those who have visited him recently as ranging from 3,000 to 4,000 men, all of them well mounted and some of them well and others indiffer ently armed. The government force opposed to him, which is under com mand of Colonel Avalos, comprises about 1,000 men. It was reinforced at 7 o'clock this evening by Lieutenant Colonel Clews with 150 men and three machine guns from Havana. Colonel Avalos' force, with the exception of small detachments left at San Juan de Martinez and San Luis, is at Pinar del Rio city, but is without means of trans portatioh to go to the relief of San Juan de Martinez. Not more than 400 of them are mounted. General 'Menocal said to-night that Guerrera had evidently not been in formed that the government had actu-4 ally, although Informally granted an armistice, adding that, a second com mittee had been sent to him, but could not reach him before to-morrow. The fact is, however, that Guerrera refuses point Wank to. aocept an armistice ex cept on condition that the- last presi dential and congressional elections shall be annulled. That . the government should consent to this is out of the question, and so to-night every pros pect points to the continuance of the war. In connection with Guerrera's atti tude It Is noticeable that the liberals have grown more Independent. They say that on accountof the government's surveillance and persecutions they will no longer hold meetings, and that it is useless to consider peace under the circumstances. All regard the blowing up of an Eng lish company's railroad bridge as a se rious matter, and likely to invite in ternational action by Great Britain, or at least an Interrogation of the govern ment at Washington by Great Britain, as to whether the former intends to intervene to end war conditions In Cuba, The conditions in Havana province outside the city, while better than those In Pinar del Rio province, are not en couraging. Americans who have visit ed the camps of Colonel Guas, near San Antnio de los Ranos, and those of Colonel Asbert, In the southern part of Havana province, have found them to be always peopled by several hundred men, all of them possessed of good hors'es, but usually Indifferently arm ed. Around Guanajay and Artemisa are many rural guards, but all the towns in that' region are In wholesome fear of the insurgents. The -situation in Santa Clara prov ince Is worse, particularly in respect icf the insurgent strength, although it is .believed the armistice is respected. There have been many desertions from the rural guards to the insurgent side. Loynaz del Castillo, who now signs himself general-in-chief of the Insur gents In Havana province, has issued an order to his followers to respect the armistice as proposed. Most of the HaA'ana veterans speak with much gravity of the disparity In numbers of the government troops as compared with the insurgents, and of the fact that while a great many of the lng disciplined forces, the former ara latter are veterans and expert in avoid- made up of youths unused to hardships and thus far largely unmounted. It is generally acknowledged that up to the present time the Insurrectionists, es pecially in Pinar del Rio province, are in greater num'bers, better equipped. armed, mounted and fed than was Maximo Gomez's command in its best fighting days. Government officials ful ly appreciate the gravity of the situa tion, but are still hopeful that the news of the ten day armistice announoed by the government to-day will have the effect, when it reaches the enemy, of causing- a cessation of hostilities until all concerned shall have obtained an actual understanding of the peace pro posals. Electioneer Sold for $30,000. New York, Sept. 7.

The final preparations for tha scru tiny of the votes for general In the large hall of the college have been com pleted. . Vicar Freddi announced this evening that the mass which will im mediately precede the election will be gin at 5 o'clock Saturday morning. lhe latest reports seem to indloate that the choice for general, will fall upon Father Rudolph J, Mayer of fit. Louis, but the secrecy which attends al the doings of the congregation is such that all predictions are likely to fail. LO UISIA A A S Til I A L.

The trial of the battieship Louisiana on the govern ment mile course off this port to-day was merely a standardization of her propellers under natural conditions, and was not an official trial, as supposed from shore observations.

ENDLESS CHAIN OF VILLAINY. Forgeries for More Than a Quarter of a Million. Philadelphia, Sept. 7 Forgeries for more than a quarter of a million dol lars by Frank K. Hippie, the suicide president , of the defunct Real. Estate Trust company, have beeii discovered Jby. Receiver Earle. . The latter made this statement late to-night, adding that he had no Idea where Hippie's vll lany would ef d. Hippie in order to meet his immense overdrafts used the names of some of the most prominent business men of this city on notea which in some cases amounted to $150,' 000. . - ' (. - The president has taken copies of the signatures of a number f business men while some of their checks or negotfa- bie securities passed through his hands, ' 'but in every case he avoided the use of the name of Real Estate Trust com pany depositor. When pinched for money to meet his over drafts or some big Segal loan Mr. Earle said, as a last resort Hippie would draw up a note with a forged signature, attached. This he would take to the cashier or paying teller, saying he had personally made the loan arid it was discounted. With the amount to his credit he would satisfy the press ing claim. i Receiver FJarle said to-night that in order to accomplish the reorganization of the Real Estate Trust company he wtould accept the presidency if the de. positors insisted.'
