Stricken With Apoplexy on the Street in the Metropolis Carried to Penn sylvania Road Ferry House and Later Taken to the Hospital in an Ainbii lance Rev. Dr. George I. Mains Ac compnnled Hlni. New York, Dec. 11. Bishop Charles Cardwell McCabe, who before his elec tlm o thfi blshoprlo of the Metn0dlst Eplscopal church was popuIar,y known as Chaplain McCabe, was stricken with apoplexy just after he arrived in this city to-day. He was at once removed to the New York hospital, where to night it was said that, though the out come of the bishop's attack could not be positively predicted, his present con dition was decidedly favorable to a speedy and complete recovery. He will remain at the hospital for a few days, at least, and probably longer, unless he exercises the prerogative of a private patient to leave when he feels well enough to do so. A nephew and niece were with him to-night. Bishop McCabe makes his home at the Hotel Normandle, Philadelphia. He has been in Torrington, Conn., however, and came here to-day on business connected with church mat ters. He was accompanied by Rev. Dr. George P. Mains, one of the publishers of the Christian Advocate, and had stepped briskly toward a Pennsylvania railroad ferryboat at the West Twenty third street terminal, when he suddenly staggered and fell. He was carried into the ferryhouse and an ambulance summoned. The bishop was uncon scious for a few moments, but he had recovered before he reached the hos pital. He was not seriously Injured by his fall. Mrs. McCabe was notified at Philadelphia. The bishop became known formerly as "Chaplain" McCabe because of his service during the civil war in the One Hundred and Twenty-second regiment of Ohio Volunteers. After the war he acquired a national reputation by his lectures on army life and his book, "The Sunny Side of Llbby Prison," in which institution the churchman spent four months. He was born at Athens, O., on October 11, 1836. The bishop came into special promi nence again last September, when he was retired from membership on the international policyholders' committee because he favored the administration ticket for the trustees of the Mutual Life Insurance company.

Result of Frosecution Growing Out of the Investigation of Insurance Com panies in Kew York Prisoner Re manded to The Tombs for Sentence Two Other Officials Under Indictment and Mny be Tried. New York, Dec. 11. George Burnham, jr., a vice president and general couh sel of the Mutual Life Insurance com pany, to-day was convicted of larceny of $7,500 of the company's funds. The prosecution and conviction of Burnham was an outgrowth of the investigation of Insurance companies in this state by a legislative committee a year ago. Two other officers of the insurance comuanv Frederick A. Burnham, president, and George D. Eldrldge, vice president were indicted at the same time as the man convicted to-day. Five Indict ments were returned against each of the defendants. The charge agains Ceorge Burnham, jr., is that in 1901 he paid J. Douglass Wrells with company funds for a loan alleged to have been made to Frederick Burnham, the pres ident, and that the payment was con cealed by false entries in the books of the insurance company. One of the sensational features of the trial which ended to-day was the pro duction of a check by the prosecution which bore the name of Louis F. Payn former superintendent of insurance, and the United States Express compa ny, of which United States Senator Piatt Is president. It was not claimed however, that Burnham pati , the amount of this check to Mr. Payn, but that it was used to resist an alleged demand by Payn for !$100,000 from the life Insurance company. The prosecution charged that Presi dent Frederick A; Burnham borrowed $3,575 from J. Douglass Welle, saying that he wanted the money to meet this alleged demand by Payn, and that George Burnham repaid his loan with additions from the funds of the com pany. In charging the jury Justice Green baum informed them that in order to arrive at a verdict of guilty they must find that the alleged fraud was com mltted with felonious intent. The Jury was out four hours before returning a verdict of guilty. By re quest of his counsel further proceedings were postponed until Friday and Burn ham was remanded to the tombs prls o. MRS.

The height to which the feeling of the inhabitants of th Eleventh and Twelfth wards runs against the erect ing of the proposed contagious hospi tal on the Rite now owned by the city in the latter ward was shown by the large attendance at the tearing on the matter in the city hall last night. Al most as many from other wards of the city appeared and favored the site, and among them were very many prominent citizens. The room in which it had been intended to hold the meeting was too small, and adjournment was taken to the aldermanlc chamber, 'but even this proved too small. The hearing was not finished because of the gerat number wishing to be heard and at 11:15 o'clock adjournment was taken until to-morrow night at 8 o'clock. Charles Gay, who was spokesman for the Eleventh and Twelfth Ward Civic association held the floor at this time, and he will resume speaking when the hearing re-opens Thursday night. He was making a damaging attack on the arguments of those who approved the bill. The hearing was opened by Professor John C. Tracy, who showed a map, which he prepared, of the site in ques tiontion, and explained the surround ings. He made an excellent plea for the site and read letters from George D. Cruttendcn and M'.ry A. Manstteld, who own property opposite the city square on which it is proposed to lo cate the hospital, approving the project, He was followed by Colonel I. ,M. Ull- man, who favored the site, and who went so far as to favor the payment of damages if property is depreciated. Speakers for the site followed in rap id succession. Among them were George D.

Pope Remains lip Until n Late Hour to Personally Read Telegrams No Such Excitement and Apprehension Since the Loss of Temporal Power Vati can Advices Show That Catholics of France Arc Divided Into Two Classes Twenty-four Hours Grace Granted Churches of Purls. 'Borne, Dec. 11. The expulsion from France of Mgr. Montagnini, secretary of the papal nunciature at Parla, who has represented the "Vatican at the French capital since the recall of the nuncio, has caused not only astonish ment, but consternation at the Vatican. (According to Vatican officials this step is an evident proof that the French government wishes, not only to strike at the church as a religioug institution, but to represent it as an enemy of the republic and allied with the republic's foes. Furthermore the officials charac terize this step as taken in a .spirit of meanness, as the French government knows the Vatican cannot, because of its position, indulge in similar action as a reprisal with the individual who is lojking after French interests in Rome. The fact that diplomatic relations between France and the Vatican were ruptured two years ago adds to the difficulty of the Vatican. M. Nicard, the last ambassador of France to the Holy See, having left Rome in 1904, Mgr. Montagnini stayed on in Paris after the departure of the papal nun cio in order to deal with certain mat ters pending between France and the church. It is observed here to-night that possibly Mgr. Montagnini remain ed in Paris too long. A curious phase of the situation is that Mgr. Mohtagnlnl, being an Ital ian subject, any protest against his expulsion or the searching of his house must 'be communicated to the French government through the Italian gov ernment. Contrary to his usual habit the pope remained up until a late hour to night for the purpose of personally reading the telegrams and going over certain documents concerning the sit uation in France. With him at work is Cardinal Merry del Val, the papal secretary of state, -who is proving an indefatigable assistant. , Both the pope and the cardinal are being' aided by the substitute secretary of state, Mgr. Delia Chiesa, and the secretary extra ordinary of ecclesiastical affairs, Mgr. Gasparrl. Persons thoroughly familiar with Vatican affairsdeclare that no such excitement and apprehension have prevailed at the Vatican aa to night since the loss of temporal tower.

TALK ON MONEY STRINGENCY SC1I1FF ON PRESENT CONDIIIOX OF THE MARKET. Declares Before Illinois Manufacturers' Association That "the Over-Wight An nounccments of Relief That the Sec retary ol the Treasury Is In the Habit of Making Are Neither Good Finance Nor Fruitful of Good Results." Chicago, Dec. 11, The reasons for the present state of the money market, and remedies for it, were explained to the Illinois Manufacturers' association at Its annual banquet here to-night by Jacob H. Schiff, the New Yorkbanker, the guest of honor. His subject was "Currency and Other Reforms," and the speaker declared that "the over night announcements of relief that the secretary of the treasury is in the habit of making are neither good finance nor fruitful of good results." ' The announcements from Washing ton, according to Mr. Schiff, are the consequences of undesirable methods, for which existing laws are responsible, The remedy, the speaker said, is leg islation which will provide that the revenues of the government shall, on collection, be deposited with national banks in proportion to their capitv.l, the banks to furnish security acceptable to the secretary of the treasury and pay a uniform rate of interest, as deter mined by that official. Should such legislation be adopted, Mr. Schiff con tended, the country would no longer be dependent upon a single man and mind for the regulation of the money supply.

Interior Minister Ponadowsky Wehner, replying for the . chancellor, declared that the latter was considered the possibility of permitting the im port of cattle without restrictions from Austria and Switzerland, with certain precautions, and of cattle or preserved meat from Russia, Denmark, Sweden and Norway. It was impossible, how ever, for the government to reduce or abolish the duties on cattle or meat and it was also inadvisable to import French or Italian livestock 'becauise of the foot and mouth disease.

IS BITTERLY DEPLORED CONGRESSMAN KAHN OF SAX FRANCISCO BEFORE NEW YORK BUSINESS MEN. Declares Japanese In This Country Will Always Remain Loyal to , the Emper or and That the Oath of Naturaliza tion is to Them a Hollow Mockery Defends Policy of Segregation Pre dicts That This Country Will Not Go to War With Japan. New York, Dec. H.-Japanese immi gration was bitterly deplored in a speech to-night by Congressman Juliua Kahn of San Francisco, who represents the fourth district of California. Mr. Kahn was! one of the speakers at a dinner of the New York Credit Men's association held at the Hotel St. Denis. His subject was "The Japanese Ques tion as Affecting San Francisco." The people of the Pacific coast, he said, were satisfied that the Japanese would al ways remain loyal to the mperor and; nun tne oatn or naturalization taken by immigrants to this country would be to them a hollow mockerv. siznifv. ing nothing. Califorians do not want that kind of citizenship, and did not In- e'tnd to have it, if they couM prevent it. The people of the coast had had their 1 experience with Chinese coolies, mini now, he said, were threatened with n. other Oriental invasi- a still more seri ous, ror tne Japanese had all thq vices of the .Chinese and none of their vir tues. The treaty between' this count and Japan giving free entry to each; country to the citizens of the other, he declared to be one-sided, as labor con ditions were wo different in America and. Japan that only the Japanese could be benefited by the international agree ment. He defended the policy of the segregation of Japanese in .the public schools of California, and said that the ' people of his state would never ner- mit their young children to be thrown into close contact -with adult Japanese. iAir.- Kahn concluded by saying that the United States would not go to war with Japan, 'He said In part: There is no state in the union that is more loyal and more patriotic than is California, but let me say at the out set that oriental and occidental civil ization will not mix. As early as 1852 we learned to know the Chinese coolie. By 1870 there were fully 80,000 Chinese coollee - in Califoria, . and the yellow - hordes kept pouring through the Golden Gate in increasing numbers. By 1878 California from one end to the other was ablaze with remonstrance, and just that time the overwhelming vote of nearly 169,000 to about 600, as I remem ber the figures, of the voters of Cali fornia, registered their opposition to the further influx of the Chinese coolie. And -now again we are threatened; ' with an oriental invasion. Since th great disaster which overwhelmed tha city of iSan Francisco last April, Jap anese laborers to the number of 1.000 a month, practically, have been swarming through the Golden Gate, and I thinle I am not stating the facts too strong ly when I say that the people of Cali fornia regard these Japanese coolies with greater abhorrence, aye, even with greater fear, than they -did the coolies from China. We feel that the former have ail the vices of the Chinese and none of their virtues. In business they are absolutely devoid of the stern sensa of honor of the Chinaman. The latter lives up to the letter of his obligations, while the Japanese never hestitate to break that obligation if it suits his pur pose to do so. 'The Japanese coolie who comes to Califoria, for the most part, IS not aa unskilled laborer. He is a shoe maker, tailor, gardener, cook, .waiter, or one or other of a dozen classes of work men, as the case may be . He can, and does, live Just as cheaply as the Chinaman. A handful of rice, a little dried fish, and a cup of tea make a square meal for him. And we feel con vince. if he is allowed to come to thes shores in undiminished numbers he will ultimately drive out all Caucasian com petition in every occupation into which he enters, just as the Cninese coolie did a quarter of a century ago. "It is such conditions that ultimate ly lead to bloodshed and race riot. Wa want by all means to avoid anything of (Continued on Second Page.)
