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

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.
"Ringer" Knebes Expelled
SIOUX Oil V, Sept. 22.—80b Knebes,
the noted American horseman who was
arrested in Germany for alleged ringing
of horses there, has recieved notice that
he bad heen expelled from tbe American

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.

THE M'LEAN DIVORCE CASE
Testimony as to Naughty Osculation Is
Refused
The Plaintiil Will No Longer Be Bothered by
Detectives Nor by a Husband's
Insane Jealousy
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. a.—Mrs. Car
rie McLean will not be annoyed by ber
husband's jealousy and bit sleuths any
more. Judge Hebbnrd divorced her from
her husband. 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 attorneysf or Mrs. McLean tried to
have a new answer and cross-complaint
to the original complaint admitted, in
which Mrs. McLean specifically denied
every one of Iter husband's allegations
as to her intimacy witli the Rev. Watts
and charged Anthony wito insane jeal
ousy and ferociiy, constituting extreme
cjuelty. Tbis would have reopened the
entire case.but the judge decline! to con
sider the new documents and denied the
request for their admission.

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.

BALTIMORE, Sept.23.-Msnnger Han

today that be was confident bis team

He expects to JaptUrl three games from

than two. if any, to Xew York. He does
not believe the western clubs are throw
ing games to Cleveland, but thinks Pitts
burg might have used some other pitcher
on Saturday besides Moran, who had
pitched on the Thursday before.
Manager Irwin said: "1 do not think
tbo western clubs are ourposeiy
losing games to Cleveland. All
the western clubs except Cleveland
showed up weak on their last eastern
trip, and now that the clubs havo re
turned home they are not any stronger.
Cleveland is the best club and we must
win from them. I think it prohable that
the Louisvilles will take a game from
the Clevelands. Baseball is an honest
span and 1 am sorry to hear that many
persons think the western clubs are help
ing Cleveland win the pennant. The

RUSSIA AND FOREIGN JEWS
The Czar Seems to Fear a Parasitic
Proletariat
That Is the Keason Given lor Interaction,
of Jewish Immigration Into
the Czar's Domain
WASHINGTON. Sept. 23 The depart
ment of etate to lay received through
Minister Breckenridge a note from Prince
Lobanow of tbo Russian foreign office,
bearing upon the admission of foieigu
Jews into Russia, together witb a trans
lation of the Russian laws upon the sub
ject. These laws are furnished in re
sponse to a request from Mr. Breckin
ridge, who made it because of tne refusal
of the Russian consul at New York to ad
vance the passports of American citizens
ot Jewish descent. In bis note enclosing
copies of tbe laws in question, Prince
Lobanow refers to the restrictions against
the entrance of Jews into Russian terri
tory, anu claims tfcst tbey are far from
implying un absolute interdiction.
They have their sources, be says, "in
considerations of a kind essentially ad
ministrative and economic. The imperial
government havine already many mill
ions of Jewish subjects, only admits th«ir
congeners of foreign allegiance when
tbey seem to present a guarantee that
they will not be a charge upon and a
Parasitic element in the statt. but will be
able, on the contrary, to be useful in tba
international development of the coun
try. It is because he had this object in
view to protect himself irom uu inliuence
of a proletariat ot tbis nature tbat tbe
Russian legislator has establiihed clearly
the categories of Israelites ol whom the
entrance in our territory can be permit
ted."
