John. D. Rocke-felle-P SAYS UNITARIANS ARE NOT STRICTLY Secretary of National Church Federation Gives Rea sons for Excluding Denomination From Fellow ship of Great Protestant Organization. New York, Oct. 12. At a meeting of the executive committer of the' inter-, church '. conference on federation in Ibis city today, it was decided to make public the correspondence out of which has grown the discussion on the subject of the exclusion of the l"ni tirian denomination from the confer ence. The Inter-church conference will be held In this city In November. The American Unitarian association. the national organization of the de nomination, elected three delegates to attend the conference, namely, Kd ward Kverett Hale, chaplain of the I'nlted States pénate; ex-Secretary of the Navy John 1. Long, of Massachu setts', and Dr. Samuel A. lvlllolt, who is a son of President Klllott of Harvard. Members of the executive committee which was presided over by Rev, W, II. Roberts, of Philadelphia, declare the original teller of invitation was not sent to the Unitarians, Universalista or Rodman Catholics. Neither of the lat ter two denominations. It was asserted, has taken any action In the matter. The correspondence given out In cludes the original letter of Invitation and I he text of letters exchanged be tween Ilr. Klllott of the proposed Uni tarian delegation, and Dr. K. H. San ford, secretary of the National federa tion of churches, who Is acting for the Inter-church conference. Dr. Klllott said that as the free Christian church es were Included In. the membership of the stute federations of Massachu setts and Rhode Island, the Unitarians had .imiinied the general Invitation to the Inter-church conference included that denomination. Dining the. sum mer, however, he had learned that the Unitarians might not be welcomed, and he wrote to ask if these rumors had any JusMllcatlon. Dr. Klllott declared it was Impos sible for him to believe that the com ing conference would exclude repre sentatives of the churches that stand particularly for the unsectarlan prin ciple In American religious llfn. Dr. Klliott called attention to the person nel of the Unitarian delegation, say lg that ex-Secretary Long and Dr. Hale On September 15 last he was cleete.l rector of the University of Moscow by a largn mnjorlty, being the first elected head of a Russian university, since 18H0 when the government as sumed the right of nomination, Tho election of the prlnc removed him from the list of candidates for tin national assembly, in which It was hoped he would be one of the prom inent leaders and perhaps its presi dent. Tho prince was a marshal of lh nobility. EVANGELICAL werf among (he most beloved and trusted of Christian leaders. llaurord's Reply. Replying to this letter, Secretary II infoic.1 wrote: "The committee of correspondence felt constrained to limit to some extent the sending out of Invitations to de i.omluatlonat bodies asking them toap. point delegates to the coming inter church conference on federation. This action was taken after very serious con sideration, and I am contldent that the committee would decline to reopen the dixcundon of the matter. I need scarcely add that this decision was In no way personal. "Surely there are few persons In our American life whom we all delight to honor more than those you mention. Your regret cannot be more sincere than that of the committee on corre spondence that the way did-not seem clear to Invite your national associa tion to appoint delegates to the confer ence." It was stated today that the letter ol Dr. Sanfoid had been formally ap proved by the executive committee. Dr. Roberts1 made the following state ment about the matter: "The Invitation to the conference were Issued to churches which it was felt were1 in sufficient agreement with one another to secure results In the line of federation. The work of Issu ing the Invitations and organising tihe conference has been under way for twe years. There Is no purpose to antago nize any church but to bring together for the discussion of plans of co-operation, such of the churches as are now In done Christian fellowship, and for the attainment of great moral and spiritual ends. "The conference represents elgh Urn million communicants and at least fifty millions of adherents of the distinctly protestant and evangélica grouts of Christian churches. Unltar lans do not belong to this group. Thlt Is a suflli lent reason why they were not Invited. We respect highly the gentlemen appointed by the Unitarians as delegates, but do not feel that theli presence in the conference would be helpful to the Interests involved." ( .ludge I'iixson Dead. Philadelphia. Pa.. Oct. 12. Former Chief Justice Kdward M. Puxson, of tho Pennsylvania supremo court, died today at his home In Ilycot, I'a. Ills death was due to a complication cf diseases.

TOTAL DEFICIT MOUNTS IP TO NEARLY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS Exhaustive Report of Iovestifatln; and Auditing Committee Adopted Unanimously by Executive Board. The executive commitee of the Ter ritorial Fair association held a meet ing last night at which the report of the special auditing and investigating; committee which was appointed to look Into the management of this year's fair was presented. After the report had been taken up In sections and carefully considered, It was unanimously adopted as presented with the exception of a few minor changes. The report, which was a severe ar ralgnment of the fair management, when first read was unanimously adopted as a whole. The vote was then reconsidered and the report was taken up seriatim, discussed in its de tails and adopted, with a few of Its more pungent paragraphs toned down slightly. Having the situation concisely re duced to dollars and cents and th whole matter clearly summarized, the next question which arose was as to what steps to take toward placing the. association on Its feet, preparatory to undertaking a fair next year. The now famous deficit was dis cussed from nil sides and suggestions made as to the best plan to pursuo under the circumstances with a view to paying the bills outstanding and making a fresh start. No conclusion was arrived at however, and another meeting will probably be held today to consider the mutter further. Those present at the meeting were President W. H. (Ireer. secretary D. K. B. Sellers, George A mot and J. It. Herndon, officers: and Felix H. Lester, P. F. McCanna, W. T. McCrclght, D. A. Macpherson, George P. Leurni.r 1, Maynard Gunsul, Joe Harnett, Fu A. Hubbell. O. N. Marrón, M. Nubu and Scott Knight. The report of the committee ns adopted , last night wua In full as follows: The Coininlttwn Hcit. ,To-tJirt Kxerutive .Cpmmlttee of . the . Twenty-fifth Annual TcrrltorUil Fair: Gentlemen. We, your committee, chosen for the purpose of nuditlng tho books and accounts and examining into the management of the Twenty fifth Annual Territorial fair, beg leave to submit the following report: we have examined all the accounts, ouchers, checks, books and records of the said association for the 1905 tair, and have also taken the testl ony of various witnesses. Including the testimony of tho president, W. H. ireer, and the secretary. D. K. II. Sellers, relative to all matters pertain ing to the management of the said fair and after a thorough and complete In vestigation your committee finds as follows. We find that the association for tho year 1804 received Tor the bar privi leges the sum of Í276; for the peanut, popcorn, candy and soft drink privi lege, the sum of $150. and for the lunch privilege the sum of $30, mak ing a total of $455. We also find that none of these privileges were sold this year, nnd that they should hav netted the association at least an equal imount, nnd that the secretary should be censured for his failure to dispose of same. We further find that these privileges were used this year by thn Casino Amusement company, which is owned by Mr. W. H. Greer, without iny intention of paying the associa tion for the use of the same, and we recommend that the Casino Amuse ment company be compelled to pay u reasonable amount for their use. We find thut the managers of pre vious fairs have been able to secure us much as six hundred dollars from out side sources for stake races, and that the Spring Racing association secured $1,475 for such races, and we further find that the proper effort was not made this year to secure such races, and that the president and secretary ihould be censured for grossly ne glecting this feature. We find that the secretary should he censured for contracting and pay ing $40 for two motor cycle races, when the sentiment of the executlva committee was clearly and emphati cally expressed against it. We find that it was the expressed policy of the president and the sec retary of the association to make con tracts for various features of the fair. without advising or consulting with the executive committee regarding the same, and we further find that the only appropriations authorlxed by thf executive committee were those for base ball, bicycle races and fruit ex hibits. We find that the president and the secretary should have followed th policy adopted by the managers of previous fiirs arid waited until all bills ugalnst thrt association had been pro rented, burring hills for purses, prism and labor, sn that It could be deter mined whether they could be paid In full, and we further find that there are at present checks outstanding to the amount of $712.16, issued to par ties outside the city, for which there are no funds in the hank, and that several of these checks have been pre sente'd for payment and payment re fused and the credit of the association greatly injured thereby. We find that the secretary of the association should not have drn'n $360 of his salary before the fa r week, and before It could be 'deter mined whether all bills against thl association could be paid In full. We find that the secretary was ex travagant In ordering goods shipped by express, which should have been shipped by freight. We nnd that the mbscrlptiim li"t this year was not as large as It siluulu have been, und that the proper ! .
