pipes, which are placed around tbo eaves and upon tbo
roof, so as to protect even part of the same. With this
constant bvavy rain striking oven part of tho roof at tbo

Horo the steam engine is working to advantage; even

it is boing utilized. One steamer will keep tbe roof of a
whole block almost under water, where now it requires
four or fire, with at least ono-half of the water the; throw
going to waste.
Inside of a building the "sprinkler*” are arranged
alnug tbe ceiling, each room baring a separate valve and
leader pipe. For tbe upper stories, as' upon the roof, a

thereby causing almost as great damage by water to the

Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune.
New York, Aug. 29.—Everybody is talking to
day about tho extraordinary meeting at Ply
mouth Church last evening. Tho meeting was
extraordinary in many respects, but chieily so in
its exhibition of a vast multitude, all agreeing on
qne point in its display of prejudice, in its dis
play of a man-worship wider felt, more blind, and
more unreasoning far than any mortal since Na
poleon L has stirred; and last, in its presenting
tho most disgraceful scene ever witnessed in a.
bouse of worship in this country.
MB. MOULTON’S CONDUCT
in appearing in the church is variously com
mented upon. Certainly it would have been no
- more than common justice to have accorded him
a chan co to apeak, - Most people recognize this.
All who are unprejudiced recognize it. Rossiter
W. Raymond, in unbridled language and bom
bastic tones, was hurling denunciations and in
uendoes on his head. Under this sore provoca
- lion bo sat silent a long time. Patience
sometimes becomes a 'sin towards oneself.
Mr. Moulton recognized this, and gave his ac
cuser the lie. • When a vote was taken on the re
' port,' Moulton alone rose to record a negative
opinion. For this ac£ to "which Ho hade right;
the crowd demanded that bo be “hung” or
“thrown out of the window.” Tho meeting
over, all

Occurring in Texas, this would not have been so
remarkable, bat occurring here, in one of tho
centres of civilization, it is extraordinary.
Women as well a s men asked for Mr. Moulton’s
life, and nothing hut tho .presence of a largo
body of police preserved his' life to him. Mr.
Moulton solves the problem to-day of his appear
ance at tho meeting in a card published in tho
afternoon papers. It will be found complete i
further on.
opinions or the press.
That the Investigating Committee’s report is a
weak and almost frivolous document few think
ing people attempt to deny. Instead of being a
cool, calm, simple, unbiased statement of their
findings and final conclusions, it was very near
a special plea for the accused. All the morning
papers recognize the weakness of the paper.
The Times , Herald, and Tribune speak out in
open phrase and declare that Air. Beecher is not
yet vindicated, and that the Committee,
however much they may have desired to do so.
did not goto the bottom of the case, because the
prosecutors dared not trust them. The Sun
hints all this, but plays cautiously. The World
acknowledges that the report adds bnt little to
what the public already knew of the scandal, but
turns, and twists, and polls out this little into as
much as possible in a column leader. The Times
justly reprehends the Committee for its irrele
vant abase of Tilton and Monlton.
THE TESTIMONY TAKEN BY THE COMMITTEE
will probably be given to the public soon.
Mr. Tilton’s new statement is expected next
week.
Following is
moultos’s card
above mentioned:
To the Public
I will explain tho reason of my attendance fat
Plymouth Church last evening. Immediately after
tho publication of my extended statement in the
Graphic of Aug. 21,1 left the city to attend to some
business hffaira in Now England, not returning until
yesterday morning. - During my absence I beard, to
my surprise, through the public prints, that I bad re
fused to submit to a cross-examination by the Com
mittee, and that the Committee’s forthcoming report
would state this for a fact. I immediately sent by
telegraph the following mes/ago to the Committee:
Lowell, Mas*., Aug. 27,
T» JeremtaX I*, Robirmn <rr Prankliu Woodrvjf, A>. 44
Front street, .Vr*c York.
I find in the Boston Glebe the following; “ They
(the Commute*) have asked him (Moulton) throe times
to submit to cross-examination, and he has as often
ignored the request,” I have neither received such
request nor made such accusation, but hare held
myself ready to appear on notice. Inform Henry W.
Sage, the Cl:r.;rman, of this at once.
Fnaycis D. Mocxton.
Haring sent the above message, and not wishing
to delay the Committee, I took the first train home, in
order to meet the Committee before the time appointed
for the presentation of their report to tho church.
On reaching Brooklyn, yesterday morning, I learned
that my telegram had been promptly communicated on
the previous day to !ilr. Sago* by Mr.Woodrnff In per
son. I waited for a meweage from the Committee, but
none came. At length, the hour having arrived
for. the public reading of the Committee’s re
port, I went to tho church to hear it. My right to speak
was the aame as that po«?re?sed by any other person
present, for I have been a member of tfa* congrega
tion for many years, and my wife a member of the
church. During the rending of tnc report, X wai
pained to hear Its misrepresentations of me, and I
felt It my duty, as it certainly w*s my right,
to ask for toe correction of these before
the report was put to; vote. In order that I might
treat the meeting with entire courtesy, I wrote to tne
Chairman a Lrtcf note, as follows:
“ Ma. Modf.iutob : I am aero, and want to say a
word. Fka>cx , » D. Moultos.”
Notwithstanding this request, and notwithstanding
Mr. Biair's speech, adjuring any member of the church
or congregation wno had ought to aay against the re
port to speak then and there or ever after {hold his
pvaoe. and notwithstanding my equal right with Mr.
Blair himself, I was not permitted to be heard. Dur
ing the prweedingi a young man, Mr. Baymond,
whom Mr. Beecher had once brought to me, saying
that I could confer with him la his (Mr. BV)
ansence, chose to fling down upon me some
false and offensive words to mr dishonor,
in reply to which I felt it incumbent on
me to characterise him in language appropriate
to the provocation, and for which I know of no En
glish equivalent. Mr. Eaymocd vaunted himself as
the only member of the coc f ;regifcion who. with the
exception of Mr. Beecher's Uwyera, knew all the facts
of the rase. Mr. Kaymocd will be chagrined to learn
that I have a letter frem Mr. Beecher, in which the
writer says that he (Mr. B.) knows nothing whatever
of the facts of the case. I will add that
the hiring, which wv last night denied to mo In the
plaos where Z had ths right to demand and expect it,
NUMBER 7.
fl shall aik for from the public st large In a few day*.
The only delay in tho publication will arise from tho
preparation of fac rimile copies of letters and papers,
including Mr. Beecher’s written certificate of
Mr. Eaytbocd’s safe and trustworthy ignorance of tba
case. I hare sought for four years, for tho
sake of the innocent children of two families to, shield
Mr, Beecher from tho exposure of his crime of
adultery, but Mr. Beecher, his Committee, and his
church, have united to compel me, for my own self
protection, to reveal him to tbs world, as I shall
shortly do. In a still worse light than that in which
hs now stands.

WHAT H. W. RAYMOND SAYS 07
TILTON.
New York, Aug. 29.— Prot Roositer A.
Raymond, in tho course of bin address
in Plymouth Church, last evening, said:
“I am the only man, by a concurrence
of circumstances, in Plymouth Church, or
in tho United States, to-day, not a member
of the Committee, and not a lawyer before
the Committee, who happens to know all about
it. What is the evidence against Henry Ward
Beecher in this case? It consists of the alleged
confession of Beecher to Tilton and- Moulton -
of tho alleged confession of Mrs. Tilton, verbal
ly, to several persona; of the alleged confession
of Mrs. Tilton in writing; and, finally, of letters
brought forward of Beecher. That is aIL Now
what is the story of the confession of Mrs. Til
ton to her husband ? It is this: That, oh the 3d
of July, 1870, she made a distinct confession of
her criminahrelationa with Henry Ward Bcechcr
to her.husband. lie was, of course.
TEST INDIGNANT WITH BEECHER
on tbo 3d of July, 1370, and I should bo
would have been ail the more indignant that ho
could not convince his wife that adultery with a
minister was wrong. That be was verv indignant
on that day is shovra by the fact that the 3d of
July; 1370, having been a Sunday, Mr. Tilton
went over to tho ofEco of the Independent , on
tbo next day, which was Monday, and wrote on
indignant passage about H. W. Beecher, which
was subsequently read in proof, and which ap
peared in the paper of Thursday of that week.
It is in an article called * Preachers and Theo
logians.*
“ Tho evidence before the Committee shows
that in the autumn of 1870 Mrs. Tilton went
away on a visit, and that while she was there
letters passed between her her husband.
This is tbo time when, sccarding to Mr. Tilton,
she was away and waiting to know what would
bo his magnanimous decision concerning her fu
ture fate. At that time, according to ’tho evi
dence before the Committee, —evidence from a
source entirely distinct from Airs. Tilton, myd
entirely unimpeachable,—Mrs. Tilton -
WROTE TO HIM A PLEADING LETTER, - ~
begging him to pat away from bis room hza evil*
and lascivious pictures, and to abandon the so
ciety of enl and abandoned women. She wroto.
that letter with tears and prayers, praying the
whole night before she sent it. It went out, and
she waited four days for the reply, in a coca
mingled agony of suspense and hope.
“Before the reply came, she said to her friend:
‘When that letter comes, go up-staira and road
it with mo. X 'am sure God will answer mv
prayer and give me back my husband and save
him from his evil course.’ This friend had soon
the letter that went,* and was to see the letter
which was to come.
“ Mrs. Tilton went up-stabs, and when th«
postman came with the letter, her fnend, nol
having the same firm faith in Theodore’s re
pentance, sent the letter up and waited awhilo
before following it, in order that she should not
herself intrude upon the reading. After a few
minutes, she went up and knocked at Mrs. Til
ton’s room, and received no answer. She opened
tho door’ and entered, to find Mrs, Tilton
* t .UNCONSCIOUS on THE FLOOR,
with the letter in her band. 'As fee was already
invited to read the letter, she tells the Commit
tee that her description of that letter is that Til
ton swore at his wife from beginning to end ;
that he told her ho would have as many pictures,
and whatever kind of pictures, in his room as he
liked ; that he would go with os many women,
and any kind of women, as he liked, and that she
should not interfere with or dictate to Mm con
cerning his moral character or habits.
‘•When Mrs. Tilton ■was laid upon iha bed
after a long tune of nnecionsnesa from profound
fainting fits, she came to herself, and one of tha
firat things she said was, that she bad & terrible
letter from‘Bory,’and after they had left her
for a while, when they returned, the letter waa
not seen. Mrs. Tilton said she had destroyed it,
and no living being should ever see it, and this
remark that X make to-night, if it reaches her
even, will probably be the first intimation sho
has ever had that that letter was, by a provi
dential circumstance, read by another human
being besides herself.”

From Our Own Correspondent,
BaoosLTK, Aug, 35,1874,
The statement of Prank Moulton, and tnq ad*
vanced position he is now prepared to take upon
it, have eo well substantiated the dispatch I sent
yon more than two weeks ago, that I can afford
to dismiss the great number of willful or ignoran t
censors and skeptics upon that subject. It is of
loss account to me that I was enabled to obtain
the information needed than that I was the in
strument of compelling Mr. Prancis # D. Moul
ton to
PRODUCE HIS WHOLE STORY
j and relieve Mr. Theodore Tilton from cowardly
| social and editorial assaults. Mr. Moulton had
; prepared, under legal advice, to abandon the
1 field at a critical time, leaving Mr. Tilton 'there
in Brooklyn alone amongst the wild beasts. One
j of these quadrupeds had already begun to in
vent Greek words, such as koprophagous , to ex
; hibit the inventor’s learning and voracity ; the
i same creature wanted me produced in Now York
before the Grand Jury, where his master is likely
to appear himself for libel without incentive.
Bat let them all go. The news is the newsman’s
vindication. If a man travels into the heart of
Africa, and, at the risk of bis life, finds-a lost
traveler there, be is received in the lost
man’s country, at a public dinner, with
the cool inquiry aa to whether ho
isn't a liar. If, at home, he penetrates the
jungle of some social mystery, and releases the
truth from error, they hare s way of calling >tfrn
“brilliant." Bat that is an old subterfuge: to
praise some minor quality of a man, in order to
depress any other quality ho might have of moro
account at that juncture. X’ardon mo if 1 do
my detractors this sufficient revenge: I had
earned myself the equality to pass the keyhole
and sit at the council-board, because I never
wasted time on mere envy, and in an unright
eous cause never leaned toward the powerful. It
is Mr. Beecher’s misfortune that I was not able
to pierce hia phalanx of lawyers, and take tho
truth at his dictation. He is the brilliant and
unreliable writer in this controversy, and 1 pass
over to him tho compliments of the press.
A reasonable tenacity of public opinion to a
high reputation is worthy of a high-minded peo
ple. But an unreasonable idolatry of a popular
man, which refuses evidence, and is not above
libeling hia innocent victims, is unworthy of an
intelligent age. Beecher is not heingdragged
down.
HE WUOTE HIS OWN SENTENCE
when he said he should go down, and, had ho
done so, peace would hare prevailed in the prints
and amongst the people. ‘He might have been
the hero of this thing,—the weak flesh condoned
by the frank admission,—and the lesson might
hare spread through this country, taugbl
by his powerful example, that Rfa
is a struggle against our nature,
and the purest cannot afford to lose vigilance.
This, however, would hare been a refutation of
Mr. Beecher’s theology. He has made man no
lower than the angels! and lo! the mao of men
comes hurled from the ethereal sky. Ho has
