lairrenceBankDirectors Will
Gome to the Rescue
' km MEET ALL LIABILITIES.
Depositors Meet and Appoint a Com
mittee to Kick.
CASHIER HOERR AT HOME AGAIN.
Interviewed at Butler He Talks Interest
ingly of the Bank.
DIEECT0E8 MEET BDT AEE EETICEST
IfA prominent director of the Lawrence
Bank says the directors will assume the
liabilities and realize upon the assets at
leisure. The absent cashier returns and ex
plains his action, claiming that he left in a
dazed condition. He is sure there was no
wrong doing. The depositors held a meet
ing and kicked at not being consulted by
the directors in the choice of an assignee.
But little leaked out of the meeting of di
rectors and stockholders. Chartiers' pros
perity is bound up in the Vulcan Iron
Works, but Lone & Co. are not ready to
make a statement.
. A prominent director of-the Lawrence
TJank told a Dispatch reporter last night
.that the asset, were in better shape than the
depositors supposed. The director said:
"There cannot be s doubt that every cent
due depositors from the Lawrence Bank will
be paid. The directors have concluded to
meet all the liabilities. They expect to meet
the demands from the ultimate realization
of the assets, but if the assets do not pan J
oat, the directors will make a subscription
to meet the liabilities and make them good.
Esther than dispose of ourproperty at a loss,
which would certainly be the case if we were
forced to realize at the demands of the de
positors, we
TOLL TROCEED TO BUT IN
the various properties and claims and hold
them until we can sell at advantageous
prices. Ton can easily observe what a tre
mendous sacrifice it would be to sell the
lands, houses and other claims if the buyers
of the same knew we were disposing of them
to satisfy the demands of depositors. To pur
sue such a policy would be diametrically
opposed to common sense, and the directors,
after talking over the matter,- prefer to hold
the property until an advantageous sale can
be made.
THE PROPERTT APPRECIATED.
"The property in the possession of the
bank, before the collapse occurred, was
worth much more than the price paid for it.
If we hold it for a. few months, the property
grill. be enhanced in value.
"The idea that is prevalent among the de
positors, that the bank, will propose to settle
their claims for 50 cents on the dollar, is
absurd. "We can and are determined to
meet all the responsibility that the bank
officials contracted, and we mean to pay in
full every liability of the bank."
THE CASHIEB ARBIVES.
Mr. Hoerr reached Pittsburg last even
ing and was met at the depot by his brother
and another gentleman. He was driven
direct to his home on Charlotte street and
reunited to his wife, who has been much
disturbed at his absence. He was ill and
retired immediately, and although a cordon
of reporters hemmed in the mansion, no one
was allowed to see him upon any pretext
He sent word out that the state of his health
precluded any interviewing.
CASHIER HOEEE TALKS.
KO WRONG DOING. BDT SOME AGITA
TION EVIDENCED.
Waylaid at Bntler by a Vigilant Corre

Pittubnrg Dazed at tbe Crash to
Seek an Old Friend He Claims
the Slanacement Erred.
It has been almost an impossibility to
reach Mr. John Hoerr since the suspension
of the bank. Since 230 on the afternoon of
the day on which the doors closed for good
Mr. Hoerr's whereabouts have been prac
tically unknown until it was positively
learned that he had gone to Butler. An
avalanche of telegrams was sent to that
place, and at least a dozen newspaper men
attempted to locate Mr. Hoerr, but entirely
without success. Yesterday afternoon, how
ever, an energetic correspondent of The
Dispatch, who, with others, had been on
the alert, located Mr. Hoerr in Butler
whither he had come from Carbon Center,
an adjacent village, to take a train for
Pittsburg.
AK EXPLICIT STATEMENT.
"The , following telegram is the first ex
plicit account or statement of what has been
going on, and Mr. Hoerr's own statements
are very significant:
When Cashier Hoerr arrived here last Thurs
day evening he concluded to visit Henry Forcht
at Carbon Center. He and Forcht had been
playmates at school in Lawrenceville, and were
in the same company during three years' ser
vice In the army. In conversation with Mr.
Hoerr at Carbon Center to-day, he said that it
was Impossible to account for his departure
from Pittsounj. His mind was not clear, and
yet he said he conversed with friends at the
Pittsburg depot, purchased his ticket and
seemed to be leaving for Butler as ho had done
on other occasions, not realizing that his family
did not know of his departure. Since his ar
rival at Mr. Forcht's he has eaten but little and
has been despondent.
Meeting him for the lint time I was most
favorably impressed with him. In answer to a
question regarding speculation, he replied that
none of tbe bank's officers, within his knowl
edge, had ever speculated; none of the bank's
funds bad been Improperly used; there were no
dishonest transactions, and he believed the
books jrere entirely correct.
Upon being asked whether the bank had per
sonal enemies, be said there was ono man who
bad been persistently and rather maliciously
asainst the bank for several years.
'"' WHAT HE ASCRIBES XT TO.
Replying to a query as to the principal cause
of the failure, he said the managers were at
fault la loaninc too much to one person or firm.
Had their loans been mors largely distributed
danger of failure would have been greatly
lessened. Of course tbe great run was tbe
main cause of tbe failure. He thought there
were sufficient assets to pay all claims in full.
Mr. Hoerr said be became connected with
the bank, as watchman, in 1S&5, and about ten
years later was made cashier. All his own
property and that of bis friends was involved.
He spoke feelingly of bis family and friends,
and was visibly affected. - He feels his posi
tion keenly and regrets that he left tbe city.
While be talked freely, bis sensitive nature
was always apparent.
Unlike most bank cashiers, he carries a mod
est' silver watch, which Is in harmony with his
neat but Inexpensive raiment. It was bis in.
taction to be in Pittsburg this morning, but be
failed to get off until this evening. He is
ready to do all in bis power, to the end that the
depositors may be paid in full.
DEP0SIT0ES MEET.
VERt VIGOROUS BDT NOT INCEN-
DIARY PROTEST.
Senator TJpperman Presides A Committee
Appointed to Investigate The Deposi
tors Think They Should Hove Been
Consulted In the Assignee Choice
Judge Bailey Was Desired.
A very general meeting of the depositors
ofthe Lawrence Bank was held last even
ing in the hall ofthe Fifteenth ward school
house, at the corner of Charlotte and Thirty-seventh
streets. The place was occupied
to its fullest capacityj and the doorway and
adjacent part of the hall were crowded with
men standing, The men and women who
were in attendance, and there were at least
a dozen women, were, as a rale, not particu
larly well dressed, and presented the ap
pearance of being small merchants, mill
workers and general workingmen, who
could ill afford to lose the savings of a
life time. Prior to the organization of 'the
meeting there were many quiet talks, and it
was plain to be seen that a spirit of uneasi
ness and dissatisfaction ran through the au
dience. Nothing other than this feeling has
ever been discovered among the depositors
of a delinquent bank.
Mr. John L. Mills, at about 820 o'clock,
arose and moved that Senator John Upper
man be chosen chairman of tbe meeting.
There was not one dissenting vote, and Sena
tor TJpperman went upon the rostrum.
A DIGNIFIED PRESENTATION.
Senator TJpperman returned his thanks
for the election and then said; "We have
come together to devise the best means to
take care of the depositors of the Lawrence
Bank. I would counsel that we go about
this matter in a business-like manner. This
is no time for incendiary work, no time to
excite the minds of the depositors. Let
every depositor keep cool, state his views,
and before tbe meeting is over I think we
will have things so shaped that we will be
able to take care ofthe people whose inter
ests lie at the Forks of tbe Eoad."
Several nominations were made for Secre
tary, but Samuel P. Kerr was elected by
general consent.
Bobert Warren, of Ligonier street, arose
directly and presented the subjoined resolu
tion, which be read himself:
Whereas. The Lawrence Bankhavintr closed
I its doors, and no statement of its actual condi
I tion being forthcoming to the depositors, the
1 real creditors, and
Whereas, The stockholders and officers of
said bank bave (rone Into' court and' bad an
assignee appointed without consulting the said
depositors of said bank, therefore, be it
Resolved, That a committee of five of the de
positors be appointed, who shall have power to
employ counsel and see to it that all the inter
ests of the depositors be fully protected.
THE COMMITTEE APPOINTED.
The resolution was adopted without a
negative. The Chairman asked how the
committee should be selected, whereupon
Mr. Warren moved that the Chairman
should appoint fpur and that the Chairman
himself should be the fifth member. This
motion prevailed and Senator TJpperman
appointed the following four: Charles F.
Hilger, William P. Eichenlaub, Baiph J.
Richardson and Michael Flanagan. Mr.
Hilger is a restaurateur recently ot Smith
field street, Mr. Eichenlaub is in the furni
ture business and a stockholder of the bank,
Mr. Richardson is in the hotel business and
Mr. Flanagan is a boss blacksmith.
Chairman TJpperman then said: "This
afternoon I consulted four attorneys as to
our rights in the matter of the appointment
ot a receiver. Jfrom eacn of them I got the
opinion that the stockholders and directors
had a right to make an assignmentto whom
ever they saw fit, but that it tbe assignee
was unsatisfactory to the depositors,
the depositors could go into court, and, if
thev had sufficient reasons, have that assig
nee set aside, that they could then suggest
names to the Court and that the Court could
select one of the men suggested and have
him appointed receiver."
It may be stated.here that, during the-aft-ernoon,
the Lawrence Bank filed in court a
statement that an assignment of all its ef
fects, for the benefit of its creditors, had
been made to William M. McKelvey, Pres"
ident of the Third National Bank of Alle
gheny. DISCUSSION BECOMES GENERAL.
Joseph Berger That assignee was appointed
to-day.
The Chairman So I understand.
Mr. Berger I think we have good reason to
object to that man, as I believe he is one of the
stockholders or directors of the bank; be is in
terested.
The Chairman If he is interested he has no
ritrbt to be assignee.
W. F. Eichenlaub I think It Is not under
stood who the man Is, He is the President of
the Third National Bank of Allejrheny. As I
was told, be was sworn in this afternoon.
Man in the Rear He is a responsible man.
The Chairman The committee Will Invest!.
gate the record of this man, his lntesrrity, his
security (riven, and so on, and if they find any
thing they will go into court and have him re
moved. Dr. John J. Greene-Can the bank officers pro
ceed in tbe presence of the attorney of the
bank and overlook the books, withont the
presence of a representative from the depos
itors? I think there ought to be action takon
here to-night so that we ought immediately to
have a representative present There ongbt to
be no more proceedings withont the presence
of an attorney employed by the depositors.
We ought to bave full cognizance of every
thing done from the hour the doors closed.
The depositors are the interested parties.
DIDN'T WANT REPORTERS EXCLUDED.
The Chairman That is the object of the ap
pointment of this committee, and they will pro
ceed at once to-morrow.
Dr. Green We ought to attempt to arrest
further proceedings until we procure the at
tendance of a responsible representative.
The Chairman Will the gentleman emlain
how that can be done.
Dr. Green It has been done. I do not know
that the "banking law of this State so provides,
bntitdoes in other States. We ought to have
writs served on them. They have no business
to hold star-chamber sessions, where they ex
clude reporters and depositors.
The Chairman The committee is autnori
to take such action as is necessary for the full
protection of the depositors. That covers
everything. ,
Mr. R. R. Warren I move that we adjourn
to meet at the call of tbe committee.
This motion was seconded and put to the
house, when Mr. Eichenlaub said: "There
has not been anything said as to who was to
stand the expenses. I do not want to stand
one-filth ofthe expense, and I think that
matter -ought to be brought before this
assembly;,to see if the depositors sre willing
to stand any expense incurred in this mat
ter." Mr. Warren I withdraw my motion.
The Chairman Litigation is very expensive
at times, and this committee may incur an ex
pense of from f 100 to $1,000.
NECESSARY EXPENSES.PLEDGED.
Mr. Eichenlaub I bave taken the responsi
bility, with a few. others, of having printing
done to-day for this meeting, but that is a small
item. Everything counts, however. IfBvefy
depositor wUlstand bis share pro rata it will
not be much on each one.
J. B. Nobbs I move that, as depositors of
this bank, wo obligate ourselves to pay all
necessary expenses incurred bv this committee.
John L. Hills suggested an amendment
that tbeexpense.be borne according to the
amount of deposit. This was accepted by
Mr. Nobbs, and. tbe motion was put. There
were three or lour emphatic negatives.
The Chairman Your committee will not
Sroceed to take legal advice or contract any
ebt unless tbe depositors are willing to stand
their pro rata share. I for one will be a loser,
as many ot yon will be, and I do not think that
any man oucui to Ouject to Hiving protection
thrown around blm and his money. If men
will not subscribe to protect what they bave,
then we had better let it go. Let-them take
all. I for une will stand my share, no matter
what it be. If my expense should exceed my
deposit, I am ready to stand it. It tbe officers
of that bank have done any wrong I for one
will join you in prosecuting them, r Applause.
I do not think it is right; when ladles and gen
tlemen come here trying to protect themselves,
when their money looks as though it were lost,
that men should object to paying for such pro
tection. A BIG DEPOSITOR SPEAKS.
John Matthews I say to let out those who
are poor. Let those better able stand this ex
pense. I will stand my share. I have over
S51900 In this bank, and it wen,t in at the
eleventh hour. ;
Mr. Matthews' statement created quite a
stir and many people turned to look at the
speaker. Another vote on tbe motion of
Mr. Nobbs was called for, and then Dr.
Green moved that the voice of the meeting
be made unanimous. When this motion was
put there was not a single dissent.
On the motion of Mr. Warren, the meet
ing then adjourned to meet at the call ofthe
committee of five. Senator TJpperman an
nounced that the committee would meet at 9
o'clock this morning at the office of W. F.
Eichenlaub, corner of Butler and Thirty
fiftb streets. The committee, be said, would
be pleased to receive suggestions as to a
suitable receiver.
It was stated by a number of the" stock
holders who took an active part in tbe meet
ing that their choice for receiver is Judge
John H. Bailey
LITTLE SATISFACTION.
Stockholders nod' Directors Sit Around a
Table, Talk and Decide W. M
McKelvy Chosen as Their
Assignee Depositors
Mot Consulted.
The "Diogeneses'' ofthe press with their
little lanterns in their hands invested the
forks of the ,road yesterday until a .late
hour, but at the close felt, that so far as the
affairs of the Lawrence Bank were con-'
cemed, they were still in much the same
condition that Moses was once on a time.
A meeting of the necessary two-thirds of
the stockholders was held at the banK yes
terday forenoon. Willis'P. McCook, Esq.,
was present1 with them, but President
Young was not, nor was Cashier Hoerr.
Mr. Young came after the meeting
adjourned, supposablyat the request of tbe
directors. Samuel H. Keller presided.
Among those in attendance were J. B.
Young, George A. Moke, J B. S. Lyons,
TJncle Jake. Wainwright and Emil Win
ters. There evidently was little talk wasted,
for in a short time the meeting adjourned,
when the announcement was made that the
directors had been authorized to go into
liquidation, and to reeommend to Court the
name of some person as assignee, the person
to-be selected from a list of five given the
directors by the stockholders:. If there
were any figures presented, thtTfae't could
not oe ascertained, as the members present
did not give them, and some denied that
they had been furnished, and said there
was no discussion on this part of -the sub
ject. Numerous fruitless visits were made dur
ing the day to Mr. McCook's office, until
late in the day a young man in the office
stated that a man named McKelvy had been
chosen, but he could not tell his first name.
Later it was stated that Mr. William M.
McKelvy, President ofthe Third National
Bank, of Allegheny, had been selected.
The feeling among some of the depositors
was growing ugly yesterday, and some in
sisted that they s'hould have a voice in the
selectiou of an "assignee, and if they were
not considered in this connection they would
ask the court to appoint a receiver. The di
rectors were in session a long time, hut the
medium through which inquiries were
forced to elucidate wis too opaque to allow
any news worth noting to escape.
The strongest feeling is found among
small depositors whose all, made by hard
knocks, was deposited in the Lawrence, and
there were some moving scenes at times, but
a safety valve was found in the discussion
of the probable whereabouts of Cashier
Hoerr. Calls at his residence were almost
as frequent yesterday as on any day pre
vious since the collapse, and the front door
has swung on its binges more frequently
than any other except those of popular
saloons or principal places of busi
ness. The lady who answers all questions
doubtless comforts herself with the promise
that there is rest for the weary on the other
side of Jordan, for her patience has been
tried as Job's never was, and yet she con
trols her temper. Why she does not issue
bulletins every ten minutes and save trouble
is beyond comprehension. A gentleman
connected with the bank stated, confiden
tially, that Mr, Hoerr might be produced at
any time, hut that in his condition it would
be cruel to force him ,to the front. To this
angry depositors generally reply: "If he's
straight, why doesn't he make a breast of all
he knows and end our suspense?"
TROUBLED WORKMEN.
Long Si Co.'s Employes Discuss the Situa
tion nt Chartiers.
Chartiers station, Pittsburg and Lake
Erie Bailway, is also worked up over the
suspension of Long & Co. Not only are the
workmen in trouble, but the people of the
village generally are feeling blue. Should
the men not receive their pay they will find
it difficult to settle with butcher, baker and
grocer.
These people always feel industrial sus
pension about as soon as tbe idle workmen
do, for there are few that do not owe from
one to three weeks' sustenance.- Should
the works remained closed for any; consider
able time, the prosperity of the village will
receive a sharp check.
Long & Co. s employes held a meeting in
Enterprise Hall, the first subject for discus
sion being their failure to get their pay,
amounting to 57,000, on Saturday. J. F.
Mahony presided.- Some were peculiarly
anxious to get what was dne them, so that
they wonld be able to travel elsewhere in
search of employment. They appointed
David Straus, James Bicrat't, Michael
Bradley, Edward Pord and J. P. Mahony a
committee to go to tbe office of Long & Co.
and see what could be done, but just as they
were gathered at the railway station prepar
atory to departure 'for the city, Paymaster
Cowan arrived and stated that he had come
expressly jto get the pay rolls and that Mr.
Long had said he would pay in full, and
would not keep them waiting until the rav
eled sleeve of care was aeaiu knit.
The men thereupon decided to beat the
Pittsburg and Lake Erie out of 18 cents
apiece and -await events'. Mr. Cowan ex
pressed the opinion that the men wonld not
have long to wait.

LIBERA! CHRISTIANS.
Ultimate Supremacy of the Catholic
Church Almost Conceded, at
A MEETING OF'BAPTKi MINISTERS.
Dr. Potter's Essay on the Gongresa Held at
Baltimore Listened to
WITHOUT-A SINGLE' NOTE OP ALARM.
The Church. Referred' Jo Ia a kindly Way bj Several
Other Speakers.
Without a note of alarm, several Baptist
ministers, at a meeting in New York yester
day, spoke in eulogistic terms of the Cath
olic Church and Its "work in America. The
ultimate supremacy of the Catholic Church
was even conceded, The majority of the
speakers bad a kindly word for the church,
which, they said, was progressive and more
liberal than formerly.
SPECIAL TELEOBAH TO THE DISPJLTCIM
New Yore, November 25. The Baptist
minister&rgathered in Dr. Potter's Taber
nacle, in Second avenue, to-day, for their
regular weekly conference, and the Doctor
stirred them up with an essay on the Catho
lic Congress and Catholics in general. His
essay, coming from a well-known minister
of a leading Protestant church, was remark
able from the fact that it well nigh conceded
the ultimate supremacy of the Catholio
Church. Indeed, it would not he difficult to
find in his words reason' for supposing that
he believed tbe Catholics to be just as good
Christians as anybody, ii not a little better.
He said:
The Catholic Congress at 'Baltimore was a
jubilee. Its first note was a pean and its last a
doxology. Its voice was defiance, its exhibi
tion was of strength; its purpose advance, and
tbat-Idare say It irresistible. The signifi
cance of the congress was, first of all, thejfresh
prominence given to tbe Roman Church in our
country,-and the rejoicing of tbe fact that the
American branch of the church is one with all
other branches; that its loyalty to the Pope is
tbe loyalty of all other Catholics.
AN OPPORTUNITY GRASPED.
Next, tbe congress gave an opportunity for a
fresh recounting and heralding of the strength
of the church a telling of its growth in Ameri
ca from 30,000 souls and no schools or institu
tions in 1S79. to 9.000.000 souls in 1889. with
almost countless charitable and beneficent in
stitutions. Its next significant feature was Its
zeal for what Catholics call Christian educa
tion, their zeal for mission?, for the Indissolu
ble marriage tie, for? temperance, and for a
better type of citizenship generally.
This congress Is tbe precursor of others, and
their apparent object Is' to make America
Catholic, and to restore the temporal power of
the Pope.
In referring to the Roman church in gen
eral, and its influence on humanity, Dr.
Potter said:
The present issue grows out of the fact that
theCatholics say they are tired of paying taxes
for the support of public schools. Thev call
them Uodless schools. They say there can he
no education that ignores God (and that's
true, too): On this issue they will fight. If
thej cannot win to-day, they will wait. They
gain everything by waiting. Their unalterable
determination Is to bave a proper share of the
school fund, and who Is there who has the
temerity to say that the public schools are not
already doomed.
WALKED AS HE OUGHT.
The story of the leper priest of Molokii,
the Catholic who went to live among the
wretched lepers, in the Sandwich Islands,
and by his eood influences raised them from
a horrible moral condition to one of decency,
and in the end cheerfully died of the dreadl
riicjtncA wn nTl'3ttV wttltrsth tt lio wat-i
disease,, was toldjWJVHe walketh In the.way
of Jesus of Nazareth," added Dr." Potter.
Until the Protestants shall meet the Roman
ists on the common platform of self-denial and
supreme devotion, the Church of Borne will re
main unshaken. There's that vast array of
DiacK-snrouaea women wnose lives are de
voted to doing good, who are at the
bedside of the dying where all others
have forsaken they must either be swept away
or met by a like bostof equally devoted women,
if Borne is not to triumph. The Protestant
world will appeal to roligious bigotry in vain In
the hope of prevailing against the Church of
Borne until it has learned more perfectly the
meaning of the sublime words: "1 say unto you,
whosoever will come after Me, let him deny
himself and take up bis cross and follow Me."
An interesting feature ofthe after-talk on
the essay was the kindly way in which the
majority of the speakers referred to the
Catholic Chnrch. TheBev. William Dixon
was quite sure that the ancient and objec
tionable Bnmanism was dying out, and that
modern enlightenment was making a broader
and very eood sort of a church oi it. The
Bev. Mr. Pox said it was absurd to shudder
at the growth of the Catholic Church, and
that there had been as much change in the
Catholic Church as there had been in the
Presbyterian since Calvin had an obstinate
objector burned at the stake.

'We are here representing the Government

his men to terms.
LoNDON,November25. Mr. Mackinnon,
the President ofthe Emin Belief Commit
tee, has received another letter from Henry
M. Stanley. It was written at tbe camp at
Kilzinga, Uzinja, and dated August 17.
Mr. Stanley says that Emin, with Sellm
Bey, seven officers and 65 people, arrived at
nis camp on Tebraary 17. Lieutenant
Stairs arrived on the 18th with his column
from the Ituri. At a meeting on the 18tb,
Selim, who had retaken Dnfile from the
Mahdists, killing 250 of them, stated on be
half of the deputation that they had come
to request time to allow the equatorial troops
and their families to assemble at Kavalll.
Mr. Stanley continues:
I explained through Emin Pasba the object
of my expedition and offered tbem a prosdse,
written In Arabic, to wait a reasonable time
for them to join me. The deputation replied
that my offer was satisfactory. They said they
would proceed directly to Wadelai and pro
claim it and commence the work of transpor
tation. HIS TRIALS ARE MANY.
The deputation started for Wadelai on the
2Sth.r Emin returned on'the 27th, with bis lit
tie daughter Ferida an $ a caravan of Ui men.
He and I agreed that 20" days was a reasonable
time. Be offered' a written understanding,
which I declined. The interval was occupied
by Burgeon Parke in healing our sick; So de
Voted and skillful was he that I was able, on
April L, to turn out ffiOable-bodied men, where
as in February it would bave been difficult to
muster 200.
Stanley then bitterly complained of the
immense loads of property the refugees
brought in, entailing endless work upon his
men to bring to tbe plateau and which was
practically rubbish, because it must be
abandoned on the marcb. On March 1 he
ordered the stuff to be stopped from being
brought to camp. Thirteen hundred and
fifty-five loads had already been brought in.
A month after Selim's departure a letter ar
rived from him announcing that rebels.
officers and everybody were unanimous to
depart for Egypt nnder Stanley's escort.
REBELS PLOT AGAINST .HIM.
Stanley, now finding- great delay likely
in assembling, the refugees, called a council
of tbe officers and stated in detail tbe posi
tion of the case, also the danger of trusting
the rebels imrjhcitlv. as Emin was inclined
to do, when 'they-had already boasted of
their intention, with cajoling words, to
entrap "Stanley and strip his expedition.
Finally Stanley asked the officers whether
he would be justified in waiting beyond
April X. Each, officer -replied inhe nega
tive. He continues: ,
I said, J'We march on the loth."' In reply to
Emin's question' Isald we could certainly, in
our conscience, acqnlt him of having aban
doneQU'theLineoilevlt ttey. hL, not arrived.
Then, -fewTSays later, Emin: troubled theCa
satis scrnples as to whether they were Justifled.
if they abandoned the people.
Stanley deals at length with these diffi
culties, convincing Emin that food was
plentiful and tbe Egyptians living in con
cord. The natives showed no disposition ixi
depart.
SEVERE DISCIPLINE NECESSARY.
On April 6 Emin Informed me that but few
of his servants', would go. Here was a disap
pointment Out of 10,000 only a" few were will
ing to accompany me. Wo all had our eyes
opened; it was' a farce on the part ot the
Wadelai force,. It was clear that the Pasha no
longer had authority. Yet Emin was obstinate
in his belief in them. Bat now the Pasba said:
"Never mind, I can do with two servants a3
well as with 60."
At this time I discovered conspiracies in the
camp. The Egyptians tried to steal the rifles
ofthe ZanzJbaris, and the number of mal
contents kept Increasing. Emin also bad re
ceived news of a bad state of things at Wadelai.
Therefore, I decided upon Immediate action. I
formed a square of rifles and assembled all the
Pasha's people within it. Those who refused
to come were arrested and placed in irons, and'
some were flogged. All denied any knowledge
of a plot. I told all who desired to accompany
me to stand aside, and, through the Pasha,
THREATENED TO EXTERMINATE THEM
wholly if there were any more rebellions tricks.
They promised religious obedience. This
muster consisted of about 600 persons. On the
10th we Btarted, numbering abont 1,600 persons,
including 850 newly enrolled native carriers.
On the 12th we camped at Ma-
zambonis, and that night l was
strnck down with a - severe illness
which well-nigh proved mortal. During this
28 days Sellm had plenty of time to rejoin us,'
but never came, and the only additions to the
camp were Shukarl Oga, chief of the
Mswa station, and one servant, ten
others having deserted him on the way. These
were all that remained of tho garrison ot 60,
reported to be tbe most faithful of the faithful.
During the month there were several plots
mooted only one ot which was realized.
The ringleader, a freed slave, was
tried by .court martial .and executed.
The Intercepted letter from Sellm revealed
another plot to attack the expedition. On May
7, a letter was received from Selim containing
various insolent charges against us and an ap
peal to wait lonrer for them, the rebels having
again robbed them of all their ammunition.
Stanley replied, offering to go slowly so
as to enable them to overtake him, bnt he
never heard any more from Selim..
We resumed the march on May 8 and adopted
a route' skirting the Balegga Mountains, 40
miles from Nyanza. Arriving at the southern
end of the mountains, we had a successful en
counter with tho King of TJngoro, which
cleared the route as far as the Semllkl river.

Then follows a' description of a snowy

well-directed volley, but fortunately with

It tooklO marches to reach the southwest
angle of the range. The huts ol the natives
were seen at an altitude of 8,000 feet above
the sea.
All the officers wanted to climb the
mountain, but were not in condition, to do
sO. Emin attained, the height of 1000 feet
above the camp. Stairs managed to climb
10,677 feet, only to find

was happy in classifying them. The re
mainder of the letter consist of Georgia's
physical details and accounts of oeeesional
brushes with the natives. As a general
thing; however,, the. natives displayed a
wholesome fear of tbe expedition.
The greatest trouble was. caused by fever.
Once there were 160 cases in a single day.
