SOME TIMELY CAMPAIGN LABOR Itt'publicuDV Have Beeu at Work While liryon Was Exhibiting Iliiif sell in the EutThrir Congress Committee Banks on 200 Sound Money Representatives. New York, Oct. 4. Senator Quay teleuraiihed from his home In Beaver yesterday that he would be at Repub lican national heaitauarters on .Mon day morning;. On Monday and Tues day there will be important meeting: of the executive committee and a gen eral round-up of affairs before Chair man Hanna'a departure for the seat of war at Chicago. It has been said tnat Senator Quay has spent the week at his home celebrating his sixty-thlnl birthday. It was ascertained yester day that there have been many travel ers from other slates who called on Senator Quay "and congratulated him on his sixty-third birthday." Then a majority of these travelers dlseui-sed aliairs In their states with Senator Quay. Meantime some interested friend of Senator Quay peddled a story to the effect that Senator Quay had left the headquarters in New lork because he had a quarrel with Chairman Hanna over alleged trilling differences with Secretary William McKlnley Osborne. Of course this story, which fooled plenty of people, diverted attention from Senator Quny's actual move ments. At the proper time it was au thoritatively denied by Chairman Hanna. Senator Quay Is familiar with the workings of the campaign in all of the southern states, and he has given par ticular attention to the fight in Ken tucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Vir ginia and Delaware and Maryland. He Is an adept In carrying on campaigns In states of tWs character. Senator Quay, so his friends said yes terday, and among them was Chair man Hanna. does not quarrel over pett1' matters. He has been too long on turf to bother about trllles. Be sides, it is well known that Senator Quay is looking out for a man named Quay that's himself and he isn't quarreling with his old allies after the battle has been won. ONE RESULT, tine result of Senator Quny's nego tiations, with which Chairman Hannu has been fully familiar, has been the withdrawal of the Higgins electors in Hie State of Delaware. Senator Hig gins has not given up his light against .1. Edward Addlcks by any means. He has merely withdrawn theHigginselect- ii . s for I he purpose ot aiding in the election of sun mi money congressmen in the Peach slate. After election the Higgins people will resume their hostil ities against Addlcks. Tlie departure of Senator Quay from headquarters Just as Bryan started on bis speaking tour in the border states (those already mentioned above), came tit) yesterday in a discussion with Chairman Hanna. who positively de clined to tell what Senulor Quay had been up to. Chairman llunna added: "Everything will be known at the proper lime, but there would be little .sense in talking about such matters an (his lime." It is positively known, however, that (he Republicans are banking on captur ing most of I lie aforesaid States, atid Ibai I'.rvun uud Popocratlc Cbairinun Jones, nol forgetting Senator Gorman, it re 'earful of the results In thes" Stales. This much is positively known. While Bryan was trapesing through the New England states the Republi can National managers were putting in heavy work In these border states. t'huirimin Jones found it mil. and that is one of the reasons why he tele graphed lo Senator Gorman asking for a conference at the Fifth Avenue Hotel. I Senator Gorman bus gone to Maryland itinl will attempt to save his State. Meantime Bryan is trying to catch up In the middle Western and Northwest ern states, territories which he has ut terly neglected because of his rapt idea Dial he could capture New York itinl the New England states. All the time Bryan was racing up and down slates which everyone lint himself knew were lost lo lilm, the Republican National managers, were subsoiling in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana. Minnesota, Iowa. Nebraska, ami Missouri. Popo cratlc Chairman Jones has been In de spair over Bryan's conduct, and Sena tor Gorman, while lookl .. six ways for Sunday, hasn't said a word for publi cation. Bryan knew it. all. In the esti mation of both Republicans and Demo crats he is to be hit by a cyclone on election day. I CHAIRMAN BVNUM ABSENT. Important llusines Requires His Depnrture from t'hieago. Chicago, Oct. 4. Chairman Byntint, of the National Democratic executive committee, left for the east last night. Rumors have been rife that Friday's committee meeting was far from har monious and that the appointment of ex-Mayor Hopkins as vice-chairman, to have charge of headquarters In the absence of Mr. Bynum, was a virtual dethronement of the Indiana leader. Evidently as a refutation of the stories the sound money press bureau announces that "Important business pertaining to the campaign will require Mr. Bynuin's absence from Chicago for an Indefinite period. Before he left headquarters Chairman Bynum an nounced that John P. Hopkins, vice chairman of the campaign committee, will be In full control of the campaign until Mr. Bynum returns. "And I de sire to add," said Mr. Bynum, "that when I am at headquarters, Mr. Hop kins and myself will work In harmony and will do all that lies In our power to make the campaign for Palmer and Buckner successful in every particu lar."

Bishop John J. Kiane. rector of the Catholic Univer sity of America, located here, has re signed at the request of Pope Leo XI 11. The news, which became public here today, is an unauthorised and some what Inaccurate form, was entirely un expected, and caused much comment In Catholic circles. Bishop Keane this afternoon made public the ' official correspondence so that the facts should be properly un derstood. He accompanied it by the following statement: "Since my withdrawal from the rec torship of the Catholic university of America will probably be regarded by a ronslderablii rtton of the American public as a matter of some Interest to them, and wince unauthorized state ments are apt to he misleading, I deem it my duty lo state brlellly and clearly the facts of the case. "On September 28 I received through his eminence Cardinal Uibbons a letter from our holy father Leo XIII of which the following: is a translation: THE POPE'S LETTER. To Our Venerable Brother. John Joseph Keane, Bishop of Ajasso: Venerable brother, health and apostolic benediction. It Is customary that they who ure appointed to preside over Catho lic universities should not bold the ofUce in perpetuity. This custom has grown up through wise reasons.und the Roman pon tiffs have ever been careful that it should be adhered to. Since, therefore, venerable brother, you have now presided for several years over the university at Washington, in the llrst establishment and subsequent development of which you have shown luudable zeal und dlllgency, It has seemed best that Ihe above mentioned custom should not be departed from; and that another whose name Is to be proposed to us by the bishops, fhoul.l be apiwinted lo succeed you In this honorable position. In order, however, that, in your resigning this office, due regard may be had to your person und your dignity, were it deter mined to elevate you to the rank of arch bishop. Uelng solicitous for your future wel fare, we leave It to your own free choice cither to remain In your own country, or, If you prefer it, to come to Rome. If you choose Ihe former, we will destine for you some archepisvopal sec, by vote of the bishops of the I'niled States, if you pre fer the latter, we shall welcome you most lovingly, und will place you among tho eoiisultore of the congregation of studies and the congregation of the propaganda, in both of which you could do much for the interests of religion In the I'niled Stales. In tills latter cuse we would also ah'sign you a suitable revenue for your honorable maintenance. Confidently trusting, venerable brother, thut you will accept this our administra tive net with heauy good will, we most lovingly bestow upon you Ihe apostolic beneilirtlon, u a pledge of our puternul unVciion. (liven at Rome, from St. Peter's, this 1.1th day of September, 189S. in the nine teenth year of our pontificate. (Signed) Leo XIII, Pope. The next day I mailed to the holy father a reply, of which the following Is a translation: The Catholic I'nlverslty of America. Washington, Sept. lit. Most Holy Father: His eminence, Car dinal Gibbons, yeslerduy handed me ihe letter in which your holiness has made known to me thut my administration ot this university now comes to an end ami thai anulher rector is to be appointed. Without a moment of hesitation. I ac cept the will of your holiness in the matter as a manifestation of providence of (Sod, nnil from the instanl I resign into the bunddof his eminence, the chancellor, the olllee of rector with all rights t hereto at. fueling.

Your holiness' most humble son In Christ. (Signed) John J. Keane. Bishop of Ajasso, WELCOMES RELEASE. "I welcome my release from the of fice of rector of the . university with profound gratitude both to Divine Providence and the pope. While I al ways regarded its duties as a labor of love, they had grown to be fur beyond my strength and abilities, and the de liverance from the burden Is a response to many prayers. I was too loyal a Huldler to usk to be relieved from my liost, no matter what the difficulties; But feeling that nine years of strain and solicitude in the work had brought me close to the end of my brain and nerve powers, I was fully ready to wel cdme what has been done. I shall now enjoy some mouths of greatly needed rest on the Pacific coast, leaving all plans for the future to a liter date. "Of course, no one ffeeds to be as sured that the action of the holy father Is prompted not only by personal kind ness toward myself, but also by earn est solicitude for the best interests of the university. He believes in rotation of olllce as all sensible men must. He knows the evils of allowing any official ami especially the head of a university to fossilize at his post and in this ail must acknowledge his wisdom. His enlightened prudence, and that of the trustees who have to present the nomi nations, will be sure to select a rector in every way fitted to guide the work to fuller and fuller success, "From the peaceful retirement which T trust is somewhat earned, I shall ever watch Its progress with unabated Interest. And 1 appeal to all whom my efforts In behalf of the university have ever reached, to redouble their interest, their zeal, their generosity. In this new chapter of the university's existence and to make it what it by right must be. the crowning glory of Chris-thin education in America." The university Is now in charge of vice rector, the Rev. Father Oartigan. who will direct its affairs until a rec tor Is selected. The vice rector, speak ing of Bishop Keane's retirement, said that the faculty and all the students were very unwilling to part with Bishop Keane, who was beloved by all. Tomorrow the fall course of the uni versity begins, and the rector will for mally announce his retirement.. The inception, progress and partial completing of the great university was the work of Bishop Keane. The build ings already constructed, together with the grounds and endowments made, and chairs founded, aggregate several millions of dollars in cost. EASTERN SITUATION.
