rSFXCUX TELZGEAM TO THE DIS PATCH. 1
Sett Yobk, April 11. Eussell B. Har
rison, the son of the President, was a pris
oner for about 12 minutes to-day. He had
made a special journey here in order to be
arrested. The charge against him is that
made by ex-Governor John Schuyler Crosby,
who has begun suit against him for $100,000
for libel. The warrant was issued by Judge
Beach, of the Supreme Court, who fixed bail
at 53,000. Stephen B. Elkins, Yice Presi
dent Bice, of the Park Bank, and W. J.
Arkell, of Judge, became Mr. Harrison's
The reported libel was introdnced in the
Montana Livestock Journal by a paragraph
which the complainant translates as follows:
The many Inends of the Dawling (meaning
"Dawdling") Dany (meaning "Dandy") will
folly appreciate the following from the pen of
the Washington correspondent of the Buffalo
Rather Severe Language.
No one who knows the subject of this sketch
will for a moment doubt its truthfulness.
During his (meaning plaintiff's) stay in Mon
tana lie was a loafer and a social leper. No
respectable woman could associate with him
without hTing her reputation seTerely
tarnished. Following as it did upon the heels
of his unsavory records in foreign lands, it
forms a nt chapter in the life of a loafer and
libertine, for to become a diamond thief is the
legitimate end of such a career.
Delancey Nicoll, Colonel Crosby's at
torney, gives his side of the story. Mr.
Nicoll said: "We have the written state
ment of Leslie Sulgrove, editor of the
Journal at that time, that It. B. Harrison
was directly responsible for the publica
tion." Mr. Sulgrove says:
On the morning of Saturday, April 30. 1SST,
which was the day of the publication of the
Montana Live Stock Journal, Mr. Bussel B.
Harrison, the President of the Journal Pub
lishing Company, came to me and asked if I
had seen Colonel McCutcbeon, as he had an
article for me which was to be used as an edi
torial. I said I had not seen him.
The Article In Dispute.
Before noon of the same day Colonel Mc
Cntcheon came into my office and handed me
the manuscript which you now possess, and
which afterward appeared in the paper of that
day. He wanted tbe article to appear in the
editorial columns, as Mr. Harrison had request
ed. To this I objected, as I did not care to
hare the article in any shape in the paper, re
garding it as libelous and. thinking that it
would cause trouble. To my objection Colonel
McCntcheon replied that the libel law did not
affect me, as it related to the editor and pub
lisher, and not the editor.
It had no signature, as you will have noticed,
so I gave it one, although the intention of Mr.
Harrison was to have it appear as if written in
the editor's office, and carry with it the weight
of the editorial opinion of the paper. This was
conclusively shown when, after it had been
published, he seemed very much displeased be
cause it did not appear as an editorial.
"It ii for this malicious, lying and cow
ardly attack upon Governor Crosby by Bus
sell B. Harrison directly and personally,"
Mr. Nicoll continued, "that Governor Cros
by demands a publio apology and retraction
from Bussell B. Harrison personally."
Some Lively Correspondence.
A letter addressed by Colonel Crosby
himself to R. B. Harrison a month ago will
make clear the cause for this, at least up to
that date. It was left at the White House
on March 16 last, in the bands of a trusted
person near to the President. It was stated,
however, by the person receiving the letter,
that Mr. Harrison had just left for the
North, but that the letter would be deliv
ered to him immediately on his return. It
was as follows:
Washington, March 15, 1ES9.
To Enssell B. Harrison, Esq. :
Sib In the month of April,-lSS7, when you
were the President of the Montana Live Stock
Journal, you caused to be published iu an Issue
of that paper of the 30th, a most cruel and
cowardly libel concerning me, wherein among
other things you charged me with being a dia
mond thief. Copies of this libelous article
were sent to different members of my family,
including my aged mother, my. little
canghter and son, and to my friends.
Yon did me an injury which you can never
repair even by the atonement which I now de
mand. That you were the real author of the
libel, thatyou ordered It to bo published in the
Journal, airected' it to be inserted as an edi
torial and complained when it was given promi
nence only as a matter or news are indisputable
facts known of course to you, and which 1 am
aMe to prove by witnesses who cannot be
influenced by any considerations. It is useless
for .you to deny
Your Personal Responsibility
any longer. Some months ago, when I bad
gathered much of my proof after a year's
tedious investigation and search and was ready
to commence proceedings against you, both
civil and criminal, I was dissuaded by friends
of your father, the President, both in and out
. of the Benate, who apprehended that the ex
posure of your malicious conduct to
ward me might in many ways prejudice
1bei Republican cause And in my
'desire, for party success I forebore
"ssgrjmy complaint against yon until the
23 Ul U1C
mand that you shall make a personal apology
to me fh writing and publish a retraction over
your own signature in the Montana Journal
WlUyoudoitt I will wait 24 hours after your
reception of this letter for your reply. Yours,
truly, John Schutlee Ckosbv.
The letter also says that Mr. Elkins had
become convinced in December lasi that Mr.
Harrison was responsible for the libel. Mr.
Nicoll said that Mr. Harrison had tried to
induce Mr. Sulgrove not to furnish Governor
Crosby with the facts within his knowledge
fixing the responsibility for the publication.
"The only explanation I have heard,"
Mr. Nicoll continued, "for his refusal to
publish a personal apology is the fear the
confession would hurt his chances for the
United States Senate for Montana. Ima3"
add that as a fancied means of intimida
tion against Governor Crosby, Mr. Harrison
sent'him through a gentleman recently ar
rived from Montana, that he, Mr. Harrison,
owned two newspapers; that Governor
Crosby had best withdraw his suit or I will
make "it warm, for him if it takes 20 years.
Some Farther AHegntlons.
"He has also, I understand, been seeking
to work up various slanderous stories con
cerning the Governor, and has freely an
nounced his intention of making the stories
public. All this only fixes more firmly the
determination of Governor Crosby to estab
lish by due process oi law the infamously
false and malicious character of Mr. Harri
son's public assault upon him."
Colonel Crosby was present when this
statement was afterward read to Bussell
Mr. Bussell Harrison, when asked if he
had anything to say regarding his arrest,
I have nothing to say at the present time.
The facts and evidence in the matter will be
given to the public in the court proceedings in
due time. I will then be able to show, abso
lutely and conclusively, that I had nothing to
do with the instigation of tho story published
in the paper, and I did not learn of it until the
30th day of April, 1887, six weeks after its pub
lication in the Buffalo Commercial Advertiser.
William A. Sweetzer, Mr. Harrison's at
torney, makes the following statement :
Mr. Russell Harrison reached this city from
Washington on an early train this morning. He
learned late last night that his presence in
New York was desired at the instance of J.
Schuyler Crosby for an alleged libel against
him published in the Montana Live Stock Jour
nal in 1887. At once upon learning this, and at
gieat personal inconvenience to himself, he
came to this city quite willing to allow Mr.
Crosby to select his own tribunal and jurisdic
tion, in which to obtain an absolute vindication
of himself or establish the truth of the matter
The public may wish to know why this action
was not brought until so long after the publi
cation of the alleged defamatory matter, and
when Irought why it was not commenced in
Montana, where the paper containing the al
leged libel was and is published and circulated,
or in Washington, where Mr. Crosby resides
most of his time. Now that the action has
been commenced, in justice to the parties in
terested, all the facts relating.to this contro
versy must oe given puDiicity, nowever unior
tunate to individual interests.
Not Personally Concerned.
The duty of Mr. Harrison is manifest and he
is not the person to Bhrink from its perform
ance. Mr. Harrison, as the President of the
company owning and publishing the paper, has
been selected as the person against whom to
institute these proceedings and repover dam
ages. The considerable delay in bringing the
action and then the instituting of the suit in a
locality where the defamatory matter would
never have been known had it not been brought
to public notice by Mr. Crosby himself, are
matters which will doubtless be fully explained
in the trial.
Mr. Harrison disclaims all liability or re-i
sponsibility la this matter, his only connection
with it being that of President of the company
ownfngthepapertbat made the publication. He
leaves tot Washington on his way to Montana-to-night.
Mr. Harrison personally is nof con
cerned as to the resnlt of this action. The
Journal, in which was published the alleged
defamatory article, Is quite able and will de
fend this action.
It has been charged by Mr. Crosby that Mr.
Harrison cansed the libel in question to be
published out of personal hatred or vindictive
ness toward him. In point of fact Mr. Crosby
has not been unfavorably mentioned, only
with this exception, in the Montana Live Slock
Journal since the first day of its publication.
FELL 400 FEET AND DIDN'T DIE
Until a Knife Was Placed to Its Throat,
When It Croaked.
lErrciAL telequam to the disfatch.i
Pittston, April 11. For several days
past tierce forest fires have been raging on the
mountain ridge extending parallel to the
Susquehanna,between this place and Wilkes
barre. Acres upon acres of the finest pine
timber is-consumed, and all efforts to check
the progress of the flames are futile.
The scene at night is indescribably grand.
At Campbell's Ledge the fire reached its
climax, from the base of the mountain to
the summit being literally one vast sheet of
flame, resmbling a cone. On the hillside
directly opposite, the flames took the shape
of a vast horseshoe, the outer rim of fire en
circling a back ground of charred trees.
Squirrels, chipmunks and groundhogs
can be seen scampering in almost every di
rection to avoid the fire. One big ground
hog, weighing nearly 20 pounds, in his
eagerness to escape, jumped off the summit
of Campbell's Ledge, and fell to the valley
below, a perpendicular "distance of nearly
400 feet On being approached it showed
signs of fight, and it required a knife to dis
patch him. '

ISFXCLU. TXLIQRAX TO TBI DISFATCH.l -
Des Moines, April 1L The coal mining
industry of Iowa has been paralyzed for the
past six months. Since the middle of Sep
tember but five mines have been running
full time, and ' most of them not half the
time. The result U a large amount of dis
tress among the laboring men in the coal
mining regions. Iowa coal is not as good as
Hlinois coal, and in competing with the lat
ter field for say the Minnesota market, it is
necessary to sell the Iowa product at slower
price, under the old regime this was ren
dered pbssible by the railroads
themselves, who gave special rates
from Iowa ' mines to Minnesota
points, bat now this is not done. Bnt the
stagnation of the coal trade cannot be
ascribed entirely to the withdrawal of spe
cial favors by the railroad companies. The
same situation exists in a greater or less de
gree all over the United States. An expe
rienced miner said to-day that in Illinois
and Nebraska but little more business was
being done than in Iowa. He thought
freight rates in Iowa were partially respon
sible, but not entirely.
Probably What Cheer has suffered most
from the adoption of the Commissioners'
schedule. That city formerly had the same
rates to Minnesota as were given to Des
Moines and Angus. With the adoption of
the new rates, and the strict adherence
thereto, "What Cheer has been practically

ANOTHER HE ATI FAILURE.
The Fifth Leather Firm in Boston to Suc

SPECIAL TELEGBAM TO THE DtSrATCB.l
Boston, April 1L The Boston leather
trade furnished another disastrous failure
to-day, the liabilities being about $700,000.
The embarrassed firm is that ot Billings &
Eaton, wholesale hide and leather dealers
at 246lE?urchase street Ths failure was a
very great surprise to the leather trade and
to the, "street" generally, and many were,
at first incredulous as to the truth of the re
port that the bouse had assigned. Their
credits stood very high, up to within a few
days, and their paper sold readily at 5 ana
6 per cent with a single indorsement. The
principal creditors are Boston and other
Massachusetts hanks, mainly the former.
The causes of the failure are losses incurred
by the failure of other houses, a depreciation
in valuables, an accumulation of stock on
hand, and the consequent inability to raise
There have been five failures here in the
hide and leather trade since this year came
in, but the losses incurred, by Messrs. Bill
ings & Eaton from the 'failure of other
houses have been comparatively insignifi
cant, and in themselves would have had but
little effect npon Messrs. Hillings .baton.
The main cause oi the embarrassment is the
shrinkage of values. This has been going
on steadily during the past two years, and
has amounted to at least 25 per cent. It has
been reneral. both in this country and in
Europe, and the entire leather trade has felt
its depressing enecc.

"jLondon, April 11. Copyright Tour
correspondent telegraphs- me from Fal
carragh: The evictions on the Olphert estate
have passed off without bloodshed, thanks
to the utter helplessness of the tenants. The
police having ascertained that the houses
had not been fortified, "eft - the battering
ram and the bulk of their military and civil
forces in reserve in the village, only 60
constables accompanying the Sheriff and his
mien. Throughout the distressing day the
chief danger was incurred by some young
Englishmen, mostly undergraduates from
Oxford University, whose indignation more
than once threatened to bring them into
collision with the police.
The bouses visited were grouped together,
rendering easier the work of the crowbar
brigade. In some instances a feeble attempt
at barricading had been made, but there,
was nothing like the fortifications and fierce
detense whieb. at the end of last year was
described in The Dispatch.
The tenants of the first two houi.es found
themselves on the roadside within half an
hour of the'beginning of the attack. At
the third house the painful monotony of the
proceedings was varied by a vigorous at
tack made npon the Sheriff by the tenant's
wife, who, despite the incumbrance of a
7-weeks-old child in her arms, belabored
the minion of the law with a stick until a
policeman came to the rescue. The poor
woman retreated inside, and clung tena
ciously to the bedpost, whence she was
brutally tonfby two burly bailiffs, the baby
being almost killed in the strnggle. Pat
rick O'Brien,. M. P., at the risk of being
sent to prison for another term .for obstruct
ing the police, rescued the infant, and,
nursed it to sleep with matronly skill,
At tbe fourth' house the bailiffs turned
out a bed-ridden old dame, despite a general
and indignant protest that the exposure
would kill her. Real resistance was offered
only at the last two houses visited, but the
defenses were so feeble that they were soon
broken down and the garrisons, consisting;
all told of one' man. and ten women, were,
sent off to prison. , Fourteen ont of 70
familiea were evicted to-day. s
Mr. William OBrien was taken tokGal
. way to-day. TiiapoBce guard allowed a?
one to converse with the prisoner. Several
town 'commissioners who approached him
were struck by the police with their swords.

When Mr. Russell resumed his speech to
day the court was crowded, but the quiet
corner seat reserved for Mrs. Gladstone and
occupied by her daily since the commence
ment of the speech was empty. She arrived
soon afterward,thougn,and,as usual,foIlowed
tbe orator with the closest attention, in
order to be able to repeat the chief points
to the Grand Old Man at the evening dinner
Mr. Russell, continuing the analysis of
the evidence bearing on the American
branch of the case, laid special stress upon
the utter failure of the Times to connect
Mr. Parnell with the extreme factions in
the United States. LeCaron's story was
minutely examined, criticised, and finally
pulverized by an array of facts marshaled
in a novel and convincing form, all tending
to prove that at the time the Irish leaders
were alleged to be hand-iu-jjlove with the
dynamiters, they were laboring earnestly
and successfully to keep the National
movement within strictly constitutional
Then followed the history of the Invinci
ble conspiracy, with a demonstration of the
worthlessness of Informer Delaney's evir
dence. and a touching reference to the
wretched men, suffering for their part in
that conspiracy and scorning to commit per
jury to obtain an alleviation of the terrible
But all this was practically prefatory to
the great subject of the forged letters, in
dealing with which Mr. Russell was by
tnrns indignant, sarcastic, reproachful, de
nunciatory, and always eloquent There was
a good deal more of pitv than of anger in
his references to Pigott. The fiery denun
ciations were reserved for Pigott's suborners
and the suborners' employers. Behind Hous
ton and the Times, it was more than hinted,
were the cowardly Tory lords and landlords
who formed the so-called Irish Loyal and
Patriotic League, and at the back of them,
perhaps even greater and more highly placed
The impression conveyed by Mr. Eussell
was thatPamell will insist upon a royal
commission to investigate the conspiracy

inquiry beyond its statutory powers.

SITTING OUT A SALOON KEEPER.
How a Parly of Indiana Women Are Hav
ing Their Own Way.
ISFECIAL TELEOLAM TO TOE DISPATCUI
Indianapolis, April 11. The women
of Oakland, this county, are having a
plucky fight with a saloon keeper. They
organized themselves into a committee and
set a watch on the saloon. Tbe women, in
squads of four or five, would go in and take
seats near the bar, keeping a record of every
man who bought a drink. As might be ex
pected, this caused business to drop off con
siderably, and efforts were made to force the
plucky women to leave. One man went so
far as to bring a polecat into the room and
place it under the stove, thinking the odors
would drive the women away.
But these women wonldn't be driven out
by insults, skunk odor or anything else un
til they had accomplished their purpose.
One fainted while "on duty," but she was
true blue and would not give up. Then they
went before tbe grand jury themselves and
caused several indictments to be returned
against the saloon keeper. To-day the latter
was indioted and fined because of defects in

ISFECIAL TELIGKA3I TO TBS DISFATCH.l
New Yobk, April 11. Mr. Ward Mc
Allister said to-night to a Dispatch re
porter that he had no quarrel whatever with
the Centennial Entertainment Committee,
it was with Mr. Fish only. It was quite a
different account that Mr. McAllister
gave of the times when he was re
quested to resign and did not,
from that given out by Mr. Fish several
days ago. The first meeting, be said, was
at a club. Mr. McAllister had been selling
ball tickets npon the order of the commit
tee. He had received the money and given
the purchasers receipts. Mr. Fish demanded,
as chairman, that he 'give up the ch'ecks.
Mr. McAllister refused, saying that he
had made contracts in tbe committee's name
with the people who purchased of him, who,
until he formally reported to the committee,
could hold him liable. There were some
words, and Mr. Fish exclaimed:
"Yon are in rebellion, sir, to this commit
tee. I demand your resignation."
"I will resign, sir," said Mr. McAllister,
haughtily, "with pleasure at the commit
tee's request, but not at yours, sir,"
THE SCENE EEPEATED.
The second occasion was before the com
mltteef and McAllister answered precisely
in the same words to Mr. Fish's second de
mand for his resignation.
"But sir," said Mr. McAllister to-night,
"the committee never asked me to resign; so
I did not I never would resign at that
man's command, and I haven't The com
mittee can do as he chooses in robbing me
of power, but I shall not take commands
from him in his personalfcapacity."
"Is this personal difference such as to
continue after the centennial?" asked the
"Really," said Mr. McAllister, "I must
decline to discuss my relations with the
man. Mr. McAllister said tbat he chal
lenged Mr. Fish or anyone else to name a
single arrangement adopted for the ball
that had not been proposed by him.
"From the selection of the opera house to
the changes -to be made in it," said he, "the
dinner, the supper, the novel arrangement
of tbe tables, tne opening quadrille, all the
cnief features are my conception. I desired
to make the ball not only the
America ever saw, but a cordial manifesta
tion oi respect for the memory of Washing
ton by the. classes and the masses. It is all
out of my hands now, and I don't know
what either ball or banquet will be. They
will not, of coarse, be what I would have
made them, for though those now in charge
of the events have my written plans to work
npon, they have hot my innate ideas. The
matter is outof my hands."
"What is your exact function now?"
asked the reporter.
"I am floor manager of the ball; that's
"And what- is your position with regard
to the banquet?"
"Really I don't know," laughed Mr. Mc
Allister. "Will you tell me what your conception
of the ball and banquet were?" asked the
Mr. McAllister leaned back in bis chair,
and partly closing his eyes, regaled the re
porter with the following description of
THE BALL AS IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN.
The ball was the'culmlnatlon of the hope of
years. I saw in it the long-cheristied chance of
my lifetime. I have seen many great balls
abroad, and great dinners, too balls and din
ners such as this country never dreamed of. I
longed to make a ball after my own conception.
I would have given tbe handsomest ball ever
seen on this continent if I had been left alone.
Neither Mr. Fish nor Mr. Gerry has the slight
est conception of ball-giving. They have told
me so. It requires a peculiar talent to given
brilliant ball, you must know. As I have
said, I have ' been to balls abroad. I
have attended the brilliant fortnightly
balls of the Dulre of Tuscany, those balls,
yon know, of which they said the intervening
periods were spent only in preparation for the
next. I have attended many of the Emperor
of Austria's superb balls, and many, many
others. I had formed a conception of a mighty
ball of 10.000, based upon experience of these.
I saw this centennial ball in my mind had it
pictured there to its smallest particular. I saw
the surging masses, never quiet for 1 meant to
put the campagne on one sidethe room and the
refreshments on the other, to keep
the great kaleidoscope ever moving. I saw
in my Imagination the greatest ceremonial
the country has seen, in the entrance of the
President I had planned it to its smallest de
tail. I saw tbe opening quadrille in its every
movement a magnificent thing, as magnificent
to the eye as to tbe fancy and last of
all, tbe grand cotillion. Each detail was
to be like the best similar detail among all the
great foreign balls I had ever seen. Tbe com
mittee has my main ideas. No one knows bow
they will work out though through other minds
THE PLANS EOE THE BANQUET.
"Now take the banquet. Ail tbe adopted
plans are mine. That beautiful arrangement
of tables, ring within ring, has never been seen
before in this country. It has been used-in ths
great dinners of Hamburg. It was the form in
which the guests sat down to that world
famous dinner given by tbe Emperor of Russia
to the Emneror of Prussia. It Is called the
"Grecian Border." It is beautiful, is it not? It
grows upon you. I imagine tbat scene. Beau
tiful! I got the Idea and description' from
Bradley Martin, from a dinner wblch he gave
in Edinburgh. Tbe details of that dinner, so
placed, stand ont in ray mind.
"The first dlfficnl ty I had to contend with was
with the Metropolitan Opera House corridors.
They are narrow. Imagine the stately Presl
dental party squeezing into the supper room
throngh a narrow comdor getting its first
view of tbe tables in that way. My Meal was
tbe dinner that the Emperor Napoleon III.
gave the King of Sardinia at tbe Hotel De
Ville. They descended upon the dining room
from above. Imagine thst the stately royal
party the dming room. Tbat was my idea. I
studied the Opera House and decided npon a
ruse 1 0s accomplish the effect. I would have
the Presidental party ascend to the floor above
by flower-strewn and scarlet-carpeted stairs,
from tbe outer corridor advance to the
balcony front where I would place a plat
form, the view from which wonld sweep the
supper room to Seventh avenue, with all its
charming detail of tables and boxes. From
there they turn, and Before the remembrance
of the scene had left their minds, they have
descended by another fileht, passed the narrow
corridors, and entered the room. tTbe effect
of tbe descent Is accomplished.
"So I had evecy detail of both events vividly
in my mind. We will see how the committee
manages the detail of the dinner nf 800. Mr.
Fish might give a Liederkranz. We will see
what he wilt do with 10,XXV"

The Chief Officers of the American Meat
Company SammarHy Withdraw A
Vast Amount of Indignation
i Over the Proceedings.
New Yobk, April 11. Late this after
noon Wall street operators and. investors
generally were amazed at the notice of with
drawal issued by John H. Davis & Co., who
had been receiving subscriptions to the
stock of the American Meat Company, a
gigantic concern owning nearly 2,000,000
acres of land and controlling all the neces-
sary plant to supply meat in large quanti
ties. The subscriptions had poured in in a
volume exceeding thebankers' estimate, one
party alone, subscribing for $500,000, and the
prospects for competing with the Armour
interests became very bright
The Armours, however, are heavy cus
tomers of the product of the American
Cottonseed Trnst, and they are said at once
to have brought pressure to bear on the
Cottonseed Trust to stifle the threatened
competition in the meat business; This
was a vulnerable spot in the development of
the meat company, for President Flagler
and Treasurer Moss, of the Cottonseed
Trust, were respectively President and
Vice President of the American Meat Com
pany. That the pressure was powerful was
shown when to-day Flagler and Moss re
signed their offices in the meat company,
and John H. Davis & Co., the bankers for
the concern, issued a card, which is given
on the financial page of The Dispatch.
Subscriptions were also rejected in Phila
delphia, Boston. Baltimore and Pittsburg,
where Books had been opened. This action,
under the circumstances, is unprecedented.
The fact that the enterprise was stifled sim

EASTERN" GLASSXEN MEET.
They Decide Not to Change tbe Date of
the Annual Shat-Dawn.
(SPECIAL TELEOBAM TO TUB DISFATCHJ
New Yobk, April 11. The Eastern As
sociation of Glass Manufacturers held its
quarterly meeting in the Astor House to
day. It was decided to change back the
date for their annual shut-down of the glass
works from June 15 to Tuly 1. They say
that they do not care to -have their reason
for this action made public. It is said by
one of the manufacturers that July 1 had
become so firmly fixed in tbe minds of the
glassmen for shutting down that if the date
was left at June 15 some manufacturers
might forget the date and keep their people
at work, to the disadvantage of the others.
Tbe Jersey glass manufacturers came up
fall of testimony concerning the wicked
ness of Master Workman Coffey, of District
Assembly 149, of the Knights of Labor.
The Jersey men said that they thought the
best place for Master Workman Coffey was
behind prison bars, and they wanted the
other glass manufacturers to help put him
there. The Jersey men got cold comfort
They were told that the present was no time
to raise a row with Mr. Coffe.
It was settled that the annual meeting is
to be held at the Windsor Hotel, this city,

New Yobk, April 11. Special Police
man George Hoyt, of East Orange, while
working in the rear of his residence, on
Everett street, saw two strangers who ex
cited his suspicions, stop and sit down on
the- bank of tbe river. Hoyt approached
them, and, after talking to them a few
minutes, picked up a new overcoat which
one of them had laid on the bank. It ap
peared to be fall of plunder and Hoyt made
up his mind that they were thieves.
Going back to his house he got a revolver
and asked William Smith, a foreman in a
neighboring factory, to accompany him.
Together they went to the river and told the
strangers they were under arrest One of
the men instantly drew a revolver and told
Hoyt and his companion to keep off. After
a long and exciting chase in a milk wagon
and the firing of many shots, one of the
thieves was captured and the other escaped.

BISHOP FHELAIr STANDS WITH HIM
Rev. Father Sheedy and Father Wall
Pleased With the Latest
ARGUMENTS AGAINST THE GREAT ISSUB
The Catholic Church authorities now take
an everr more emphatic position against
Constitutional amendmend. When The
Dispatch's special, commissioner inter
viewed Archbishop Ryan on the subject
two months ago, he showed plainly where
he stood. That Interview led to so much
inquiry from Catholics all over the State0,
that the Archbishop himself wrote an arti
cle in the Catholic Total Abstinence S'etcs,
confirming what he told The' Dispatch
representative. Now he finds it necessary
to substantiate what he then wrote, and in
doing this the prelate makes some very slg
A dispatch.from Philadelphia last night
In the Catholic Standard of this week ap
pears rfi statement regarding the position of
Archbishop Ryan and his recent utterances on
the Prohibition amendment. It is as follows:
"His Grace, the Most Reverend Archbishop
of Philadelphia, has received a number of let
ters asking for information on the subject of
prohibition, and particularly as t whether his
letter published in the C. T. A. Sews of this
city is to be regarded as an authoritative of
ficial utterance, or simply as the expression of
His Grace's individual omnion. His Grace,
finding it inconvenient to reply to all these let
ters separately, has requested ns to publish ths
following statement, which he hopes will be
accepted as a general answer to the various in
quiries that have been made:
HOW HE LOOKS AT IT.
"In reply to various letters of inquiry, the
Archbishop of Philadelphia begs to state that
what he wrote on tbe subject of tbe prohibi
tion amendment to the Constitution was lim
ply his personal conviction, although, of
course.it is well understood that in dealing;
with such questions it is difficult for a Catholio
Bishop to separata his personality from his
"The liberty of Catholics-to vote for the
measure wilj depend on the principles on which
they found their convictions. Some of thai
principles urged in the literature of prohibi
tion, such as the one tbat the; use of spirituous
liquors, even as a beverage, is intrinsically
wrong, and should be always prohibited, can
not be held by Catholics. It is only the abuse,
not the use, tbat can be condemned. If tho
use and abase be inseparably connected be
cause of the appetite created by indulgence in
an Individual ease, then the use itself should
be prohibited in such a case- As he cannot
think that this is true of the whole State of
Pennsylvania, and as we have strongrestrictivo
laws, and can enact stm stricter ones, he is up
able to see the need of a Constitutional amend
ment on the subject. In any case, be feels
tbat mere legislation can but regulate overt
"acts, tbe external manifestation of the evil.
"The true remedy must be found In appeal to
the individual conscience, as- in our Catholic
temperance societies, wbich are also religious
BISHOP PHELAN APPBOVES IT.
A reporter of The Dispatch called upon a
number of the Catholic clergy of this city, and,
showing them the telegram, asked them
what they thought of the manifesto, RtRev.
Bishop Phelan was first seen, at his residence
on Sherman avenue, Allegheny. He said:
"The Archbishop clearly defines his views In
regard to the subject, and tbey are the same
as tbe officials of tbe Catholic Church have
m rom time to time made public It is simply an
empuauc rciLcrauuii 01 wuat .nis uince saia
some time ago, ana there Is no way of miscon
struing his language. We cannot tell the peo
ple of the church to vote for or against the
prohibitory amendment. It is a matter for
each individual mind to settle for himself, andt
the church is not concerned in it. Not only
are the laity of tbe church supposed to follow
the dictates of their own conscience, but the"
clergy are expected to act and vote in what
ever manner they see fit. My own personal
views are of no consequence. What was sup
posed to be my sentiment in re gard to the
amendment was published some time ago.
Whether they were or were not my views does
not concern anyone. I think the letter of ths
Archbishop is as plain as anyone would want
it. It can be understood by every Catholic
who wants to understand it, and he can then
go and do as he likes about it."
Rev. Morgan M. Sheedy, pastor of St Mary's
of Mercy Chnrcb, and Vice President of the
national organization of the Catholic total ab
stinence societies, said:
"There is no explanation of the letter neces
sary. It is a very clearcut document, and I
think anybody can understand it The Arch
bishop's views have been published from time
to time, but some persons evidently have been
trying to misconstrue what be has said."
"What does tbe part about it being difficult
for a Catholic bishop tn separate his personality
from his sacred office mean? Can that not be
construed to have some bidden meaning?"
"No; I think tbat is explicit enough. It sim
ply means tbat the individual opinion or utter
ances of any bishop or priest at the bead of a
diocese would be used to good effect by some
people in influencing others to bold
similar views. On account ot the large
following the Archbishop has there
wonld be a great many people guided
bywhatbe says. Tbe reason be will not take
one side or tbe other is tbat be does not wish,
anybody to be influenced by bis course I have
said before tbat the only real solution of the
?uestion is tbe education of the young up to it,
f the appetite of men was taken out of their
children before tbey grew up every one would
be a Prohibitionist In himself. If the idea is in
culcated in children that the abuse of liquor
is harmful they will not touch It at all when
they grow up to be men and women."
FATHEB WALL'S CONVICTIONS.
Very Rev. Fath, er Wall, rector of St. Panl'g
"I have not read the Archbishop's recent let.
ter, but I know what his views are. The
church cannot take hola of the matter and tell
people how to vote. I do not believe that you
can legislate against a man's appetite. Sup
pose we have a prohibitory law, will Itprevent
drinking by those who crave liquor? It might
be a good thing if it was enforced and
it would surely do no harm to give It a trial. I
am not a teetotaler myself, but I am satisfied
that I could get along without tasting liquor.
My Idea of the whisky business is that the Gov
ernment should see tbat nothing but good
whisky was manufactured and the sale of it be
placed in tbe hands of responsible persons. As
the law stands now, if a man has SoOO he can
get a license. Very often the responsible and
respectable person cannot get a license for the
reason that he has not ths 3500. and vice versa.
"As far as giving our views in the hope that
people will be guided by what we say the
church has nothing whatever to do. We nave
our temperance societies in the churches and
preach temperance among our people. I think
tbe amendment can take care of itself. If onr
people want to vote for it that is their business
