THEY APPEAL TO THE POPE Greater Religious Freedom De sired in South America W. E. H. LECKEY HAS DOUBTS Justin McCarthy Offers His Full and Cordial Sympathy H Is Hoped That Changes May Be Efiected in Laws Regarding "larrlage ot Protest ante and Catholics Associated Press Special Wire CHICAGO, Sept. 23.—The Chicago Methodist ministers wh] have undertaken to seenre through the pope greater re ligious freedom for tne Protestants in Peru, Ecuador aud Bolivia have in re sponse to circular letters received encour agement from Justin McCarthy,Algernon Swinburne and tbe historian. W. E. H. Lecty. The letters are ns follows: "7 EATON TERRACE. London. "Dear Sir:—l have read your letter,just "received, with great irlerest. I feel no doubt whatever that tbe influence of the pope will be exercised io securing for Protestants in the South American re publics the same liberty of conscience that ia enjoyed by Roman Catholic citi gens of your country. I need hardly say that your purpose bus my fullest and most cordial sympathy. I thank you much for your kindly voids with regard to myself and my writing. "Very truly yours, "JUSTIX M'CARTHY." "THE PINEs, Putney Hill, Lon ion. "Dear sir:—l am no less honored than gratified by your expressed wish for my opinion ou so grave a question as that on which you usk for it, and enn only say that it seems more to me than some what wanton waste of time to apply di rectly or indiretly to the cardinal or pope of any relaxation or modification of the most monstrous claims ever put forth by the church. Force and force alone could obtain even a show o' justice, decency or fair play from the ministers and agents of a reiigiou which una never yielded one jot of its atrocious pre ten sions except under sheer compulsion of absolute necessity. "Yours most sincerely. •'ALGERNON ( HAS. SWINBURNE." VOSBI'RGEN, Gulderlantl. "Dear sir:—l wish you all success in your efforts to obtain a repeal of the gross, intolerant laws about Protestant marriages which exist in some of the South American states, but I shall be much Surprised if you obtain any real kelp from the Vatican. Such laws were once general in Roman Catholic coun tries. They were always inspired or sug gestel by the priests, and tbey were only abolished wben tbe political power of the church waa restricted or overthrown. "Yours faithfully, "W. E. H. LECKEY." CUSTER'S UNCASHED CHECK A Reminder of the Famous Fighter's Massacre The Hietery o< the Paper la Doubtful, but It Will Be Presented at Washington for Payment BISMARCK, N. D., Sept. 33.—The tragic death of General Custer and his gallant men at the hands of the Sioux Indians in tbe massacre of the kittle Big Horn was recilled here this week hy the forwarding to Mrs. Custsr of a che k for $1500 draw i to the order of Genera! George A. Custer in 18711. The check is dated June 2>tb, and is signed by B. Smith, at tbat time assistant paymaster in the army. It was on June 25, 187ti, tbat tbe massacre took place. The check is still unpaid, aud soiletl and tattered though it be, constitutes a valid claim against the government for the annuo t represented upon its face, wb icb was no doubt intended as part payment of Gen eral Custer's salary as an officer of the United Statea army. Where the check has been all these years no one knows, least of all Michael Francis, wbo found it in the street here last February and who bas retained it in his possession until now. When Francis picked un tbe bit of paper it was almost aa legible as when it was drawn, but three heavy creases in it showed tbat it had been worn through. The parts were joined together by narrow strips of pa per pasted on the back and the edges were somewhat soiled as though tbe pa per had at one time been dropped in tlie mnu ; No indorsement appeara upon the back of the check, and the face shows the mask of no cancellation stamp, demon strating that tne check has never been presented for payment. The check was no aoubt;jferwarded to the northwest be fore the news of the Custer massacre reached Washington. Had it reached SHOKE A CAPTAIN MARRYAT CIGAR TODAY FINEST BEYOND QUESTION HARBUROER, HOnAN & CO., New York, Maker* those in charge of the dead soldier's effects it would havo been sent back at once in order that one payable to tbe heirs could have ben s-nt on in its place. It has evidently been under shelter some where, and the chances are that it was lost recently and swept out .ntothe street where it was found hy Mr. Francis. Day Fight or nay Fake NEW YORK. Sept. 23.—A local paper says: Manager William A. Brady has just made a very frank statement of the pugi listic situution. He said: "There is not a thing in the world I would hesitate to do to keep Jim from getting defeateJ. 1 would stop at noth ing, refuse to accept any referee, start a riot or anything, no matter how desecr ate, rather than let Corbett go down. Yuu can bet your life that if he is not In condition he will not enter the ring." A ided to Ibis Fitzsimmons' positive Statement made just before the Austral ian boarded his ipeolal car en route for Tegas, that he would not tight Corbett unless either paid $20,000 or assured that the eidoloscope company would not be allowed to photograph the contest, makes the situation exceedingly dubious.

SAN JOaQUIN COUNTY BONDS The Supreme Court Says They Are Valid A Nice Question of Law Which Nearly Pre vented the Building of a Needed County Hospital SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 23.-The so preme court decided today tbat the San Joaquin county Hond issue was valid. C. F. Howland sued the supervisors of the county to have the bonds declared invalid. Tlie bonded indebtedness was created to raise money for the erection of a county hospital. Huwland contend ed that the supervisors bad exceeded their power, because two-thirds of the qualified voters of the county nad not voted in f*vor of the issuanco of bonds. The special election on tbe question as to whether the indebtedness should he created was held November 8, 1892, on the same da' as a general election. Votea to the number of (1500 were cast at the general election, but the returns showed that 3880 electors voted in favor of tbe issuance of bonds and 1000 against. If two-tblr Is of all the votes cast were necessiry to Iczahy justify the issuance of bonds,then the proposition was defeat ed. But the court hel 1 that the law doea not require a vote of two-thirds of all votes cast at the general election. It only requires two-thirds of all those cast at the special election, which nappened in this instance to be held on the same day as tbe general election. Under this construction the vote was sufficient.

Anthony McLean, today, giving her half the community property, but reserving the question of wbo shall have tbe custody of the children until the decree is signed. All the money spent hy the husband in trying to prove that his wife's friendship for Preacher Watts was noi what it should be was a useless expenditure, for Judge Hehhard apparently threw out all tin 1 vigilant sleuths' testimony as to the osciilaiion on ISernal Jltiihti, in Jeffer son park and elsewhere, jieagreed,how ever, that McLean had been trealed cruelly by his wife and he granted ttie divorce to the husband on the ground of extreme cruelty.

THE YANKEE BOAT A WINNER !n the International Race for Half=Raters BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP Manager Hanlon ConfiJent That Balti more Will Win Knebes, the Ringer, Expelled From the American Trotting Association—Racing Results and Baseball Games Ass'elated Press Special Wire. OYSTER BAY, N. V., Sept, 23.—Tha first race of the match, the best three out of five betwoen Ethel Wynn.of the Indian Harbor Yacht club, and Spruce IV, of tho Minilwa Yacht club, was saildad to day after Saturday's llukc. Ethel Wynn won ve'y easily. She beat Sprnce IV by 7 minutes and 41 seconds, over a course tbat began with a run to leeward for tbiee miles and included a beat back on the second lea: and a repetition of eight lengths to make tne full distance of twelve miles. After tje race Mr. J. Arthur Brand said to a reporter ol the Associat ed I'resa that he had changed his mind in one way if not in others. He believea tbat Spruce was more clever in a breeze that blew; that he discovered today that tbe stronger the wind thu better was Etbel Wynn. Mr. Brand had no com plaint against steam yachts, excursion boats, schooners or sloops that were fol lowing the races except in one instance, when Mr. Colegate Hoyt s steam launch got in his way just before the start, in terfering witb li is crossing the starting line. "But, 'said he, "don't think for a moment that I make claim that the in cident would affect the result. X waa beaten and well beaten." Indications early tbis morning for the International half-raters' nice were much tbe same as those on Saturday, the breeze being light. The course today was three miles out and back and repeat, making twelve miles. The preliminary signals were given at 12:30, preparatory signal at 12:40, starting signal at 12:45. Etbel Wynn got over the lino lirst and started away on a turn before the wind. Spruce IV. followed eight seconds later. Both set sipnnskers immediately. The English boat succeeded in blanketing tbe Yankee, and at 12:50 had run by the Ethel Wynn. The course is northeast by east. The wind was blowing live miles au nour. The run out was a remarkably close and interesting race, as aeen from the Sewanhaka club house on Center island. The Ethel Wynn overhauled ncr oppo nent and the yachts stood on almost even terms for a long time. This was more noteworthy because tbe Spruce did sucb fast work on the wind Saturday. The latter rounded the outer mark first, but could not be seen perfectly from the ob servatory on the club house. After round ing tbey stood on tbe starboard tack for the Long Island shore. Coming out from behind Lloyd's Neck Ethel Wynn was lirst to appear ; both on the port tack. Ethel Wynn stood out further from ahoro than her antagonist and came about first in 2:15. Spruce fol lowed suit and when both beaded back for Lloyd's Point Ethel Wynn was well ahead. Ethel Wynn came about again a 2:20 and stood off shore. Spruce made a long board in under Lloyd's Neck. When ebe came about and headed off shore tbe Spruce was nnaDle to cross Ethel Wynn'a bows. On the contrary she passed an eighth of a mile behind Ethel Wynn's stern. Tbis was at 2:22. Ethel Wynn flis. playel excellent windward work and con tinued to go in on the Englisu boat. At 2:3BrJthel Wynn led, it was estimated, three-eighths of a mile. Ethel Wynn wmt on tlie port tack and disappeared from view behind a point of Center island. It seemed evident she would bave to tack a couple of times more befcre she could round, hut sbe did not. The Spruce came about to the start boat and beaded for shore. At this pe riod it looked as if Ethel Wynn had fully maintained her lead. At 3:02 Spruce went about fcr the mark. Tbe official time in rounding the first outer mark was: Ethel Wynn, 1 hour, 31 minutes, 40 seconds; Spruce. 1 hour.39 minutes and 57 secon Is. So tbe Ethel Wynn was first by 17 seconds out of the first run before the wind, which had lreshened to about lo knots an nour. On the beat to the second turn Etbel Wynn clearly had the best nf the game. The Spruce was a little slower coming about but followed np pluckily. Ethel Wynn left the second mark on ber star board quarter nt 3:02:02 and broke out her spinnaker immediately to the port, ihe Spriue rounded at 3:03:07. She broke out her spinnaker at 3:011:15. Ethel Wynn passed the line first at 4:17:15. She was greeted with the shriek ing and tooling of the assemoled fleet of observers. But the good, game Spruce which came along at s.fid, or 7 minutes I and 1 seconds behind, received as royal wcclome as did tbe winner. Eastern Races CINCINNATI. Sept.
