Wanted Whole Family to Experi ence the Honor of Owning the Home. People Are Hardly Satisfied With the Explanation—That Alleged Church Scheme. •Washington, Nov. 22.—Until last eve ning Admiral Dewey and his family and their entourage were unwilling to make any statement concerning the matter of the transfer of the gift home. They refused time and time again even to see representatives of the press, who craved an explanation. But last night IIr. Crawford, the admiral's official sec retary, deigned to explain the matter. He said it had been the intention of the admiral from the first to transfer the property lirst to his wife and through her to his son. "The admiral is very grateful to the American people who gave him this house," said Air. Orawfird, "and he takes such a sentimental view of it that he wanted the title to the property to lest, at least temporarily, in the name of each member of his family. So he first made the property over to Mrs. Dewey as a wedding gift and then she passed it as a love offering to young George. What there is in that to criti cise I am unable to see." Mr. Crawford did not say so, but W EAR, INCLUDING some people imagine young George, just to show that he is not to be out ETC.: AND done in this tyle of sentimental gen erosity, will now proceed to deed the house back to his father, and thus ev one will be happy and the property will at last remain in the name of the man for whom it was intended by the I donors. Neither the second transfer of the property nor Secretary Crawford's ex planation thereof appears to have mol lifted public sentiment. Th- prevailing opinion is that this second transfer, the one to the son, was an after thought, and that it was thought of because of the storm of in dignation roused by the lirst transfer. Every paper in the east that readied Washington condemned the transfer to Mrs. Dewey as a mistake, to use the mildest term. Without exception the prominent men and women of the capi tal "echo that opinion. Many of the admiral's closest friends say they were unwilling to believe the report till they saw official record in the real estate columns of the local papers. "It is sim- piy astounding." said one of the gentle- a thing. If any man had told me two .« weeks ago that this house was going to be passed a round in the family like that should have laughed at him as an id- The Washington papers are full of let from indignant -people, among them many subscribers to the Dewey fund, one writer suggests that Dewey has gone, to join Hobsori—one kissed awav his fame and the other married his away. Another proposes that a new subscription be .started for the pur •Tose- of- buying Dewev a row of houses, so that he may make sure of having jone to give each member of his family, With one left for himself. A third says she has written Mrs. Dewey asking for the return of the subscription which she made: to the 'house fund. These are samples of' the letters. An interesting story concerning the motive for the original transfer is afloat here, and in the absence of evi den-'.- to the contrary linds many be lievers. 31 rs. Dewey, as is well known, is a devout Catholic. In the same block in which the Dewey house is sit uated stands St. .Matthew's Catholic ehur. h, or rather a part of a church. The design for this incompleted edi fice is on a grand scale, calling for a sort of.cathedra! in the form of a Mal tese cross, with a- chapel in each of the .'angles, of the cross. In order to find room for finishing this ambitious struc ture according to the plans more ground is needed. Three houses in that .block, one them the Dewey house, will be wanted in lime. It is said the parish authorities'already have an op tion upon one of the houses, and. the story goes that through Mrs, D«\v*y [they hoped to get another. This addi tional ground will not be needed for some years, as the parish is unable to complete the cathedral or church till it selis its old church property at the cor ner of Fifteenth and II street£. direct ly across the street from the Shoreham Hotel. This valuable corner is held at *.5250,000, and when it is sold there will be funds with which to complete the I'riow" barely started but very ambitious udifice on Rhode Island avenue. According to this report it was the plan to let Mrs. D?wey hold the proper ity.in her name for some time, and then to pass it over to the church when it was needed. But tho storm of popular indigna tion over the diversion of the gift from the purpose which the donors had in mind was so strong that the admiral and Mrs. Dewey suddenly changed their minds, and resolved upon the transfer to the son, George IJewoy. Whether or not this is the true expla nation of the remarkable episode of the gift house can not be learned, as Admiral Dewey refuses to be seen, and his secretary. Mr. Crawford, adheres valiantly to his explanation that the transfer from husband to wife and from wife to son was a part of the original plan. Mr. Crawford adds that the transfer from Mrs. Dewey to son George should have been filed at the same time as the other, but does not explain the failure to do so, an important omission consid ering the fact that the transfer has been in the hands of a locai real estate firm for more than a week. Nor is it explained why, if it was the original intention to keep the property passing around in the family, the first transfer from the admiral was to a trustee. To each of these transfers— and there have now been three since the admiral acquired the property—$50 worth of revenue stamps were affixed— rather an expensive amusement for the sake oif a little sentiment. If the purpose of the transfer from Mrs. Dewey to son George was to appease popular Indignation the plan evidently has not succeeded as well as gtmting Ttmes-^ejmbl^ torn /-..• -vy v.--. •:. --. -••••••-.: .i^^ v., v, could have been wished.

New York, Nov. 22—Charles H. Nlcoll, secretary of the committee for perpet uating in marble the plaster aTCh at iIadison Square known as the "Dewey arch," said yesterday that he desired to call public attention to the desire of the committee that the arch should be known and spoken of as the "navy arch." Mr. Nicoll said: "If people keep on making the mis take that this is a "Dewey arch" the action of Admiral Dewey in giving away the nation's gift may have some effect on the subscriptions to the arch fund. But we have been trying as gracefully as we could, and we shall simply have to keep on trying, without doing it too abruptly to emphasize the fact that this a navy arch, a national monument that we intend, not to br erected in honor of a single individual, but one that shall stand for all tiriu as a testimony of our appreciation the glorious deeds of the navy, from the time of Decatur and Paul Jones until now." ARE FERNINST ROBERTS. MotliodlHt General Missionary Com mittee Goes oil llccord. Washington, Nov. 22.—The general missionary committee of the Methodist church placed itself on record against the seating of Representative-elect Brigham H. Roberts of Utah, in the next congress. The matter came up when the appropriation for mission work in TTtah was under discussion. The resolution was introduced by Bishop Warren and was adopted by a rising vote. A committee of three was appointed to present it to the presi dent and place a copy of it In the hands of every member of congress. In sub nance the resolution says: The general missionary committee expresses Its unqualified disapproval of the election of Mr. Roberts, "an avowed polygamist," and by the election Utah publicly repudiates her sacred agree ment which she made in order to secure staehood. It most earnestly calls on very representative of the Fifty-sixth congress to use his utmost endeavors and to exhaust all honorable means to secure the prompt expulsion of Mr. Roberts and also to secure action by congress, proposing an amendment to the national constitution defining mar riage and making polygamy and polyg amous cohabitation a crime punishable by severe penalties, including disfran chisement and disqualification to vote or to hold office of any kind. The committee appropriates $10,000 for the mission work In Utah during the coming year and ?7.000 for the school work. The other appropriations for home mission work were as follows: Missions among the American In dians, J7.4SC conferences north of the Potomac and Ohio and east of the Mis sissippi, J2.r),lGl: for the conferences of Kansas.

Th Prince of Wales rose first, saying, "By command of the queen, the German em peror and empress." This wa^ followed by the German national anthem. Kmperor William then raised his glass to the simple words, "The Queen' after which the British national an them was played. As it was her birth day the Prince of Wales toasted the Kmpress Frederick and the German national anthem was played- again.

State Oifioers Hurrying Militia to the fcoene—An Investigation Under Way. Austin, Texas, Nov. 22.—Governor Sayers is in receipt of a telegram from the commanding olTicer of the United States troops at San Antonio, convey ing the Information that there had been a race riot at Rio Grande city Monday night between the federal negro troops stationed there and the citizens of that town. About the same time this telegram was received another came from the county judge at that place, and they are somewhat confusing. The military commander at San Antonio, Gen. Mo Kibben, telegraphs that the report he received from Fort lilnggold, near Rio Grande City, states that all the troops were in the garrison at 7 o'clock, when the citizens of that town advanced up on the fort andi fired on the guards. The uard returned the fire and the entire garrison was called to arms. The citi zens continued their firing until the fort and the soldiers returned the fire, and finally had to bring their Gatling ?uns Into play to disperse the attack ers. The commander states that he fears further trouble and asks tor more troops. The telegram from the county judge states that the negro soldiers in the fort there deployed in a ravine on the nlge of the town and fired iijto and over the town for something like an hour and a half, shooting into a number of houses, wounding one man and fright ening the women and children so badly that a number of them had lied to the urrounding ranches for safety that the attack was entirely unprovoked, ami that the community was highly in censed and further trouble was looked for at once. Upon receipt of these telegrams. Gov rn.or Sayers ordered Adj. Gen. Scurry to the scene of action, and he left for his destination. The governor also wired to Washington to have a full in stigation of the matter and to re move the negro troops at once. The ommander at San Antonio sent a spe ial detail of ofiicers to the scene at once to investigate. All is quiet today. GOVERNMENT OF GUAM. ('apt. Lonry Kmploys Some Original Methods on the Inland. Washington, Nov. 22.—Gov. Leary, of iluam, or the Isle of Guam, as it ailed on the ollicial gubernatorial seal, is having a novel experience for an Ameriian in an altogether unique community, but the infrequency of communication'with the outside world permits little information to reach Washington regarding this Innovation in colonial establishments. Governor Leary was always a picturesque char acter in the service and his mission in the lonely and scarcely known Island was regarded by those who knew him as singularly appropriate. It was expected that an interesting experiment in civilization would begin when he assumed absolute control of the new possession, and so it turned out, although the navy department fo: some reason has refrained from permit ting the de-tails of his reports to get into circulation. That these reports an highly interesting and in some in stances wholly unconventional is evi dent from portions of one which has come to Washington. In tjlis Governor Leary incloses two of his recent orders to the citizens of the isle of Guam, which are unlike any other orders ever issued by a naval olficer. The report, which is dated October II, gives a terse resume of affairs in tin- captain's dominion since the last mall. It shows the islanders are Inor dinately lazy, 'having acquired the hab its of their ancestors of raising only such crops as will keep their bodies and souls together, and that they cannot be asily induced to value money or exer cise their earning power. With the minimum of exertion they are satisfied if they do not starve. The whole island is full of examples of neglected oppor tunities which are so distasteful t. Americans. The governor set out to bring the people Of Guam to a realiza tion of the natural wealth of the island and to make al! under his jurisdiction as productive as possible. He tells the navy department that he does not want any more marines sent to him, as he cannot provide food for them and does not need -them for Ijis defense, as he has nothing to fear from the natives. He begs, however, for more officers to assist him in carrying out his plans for improving the condition of the popula tion. Hi.- says he wants an ice machine, none of the water on the island being of potable temperature. He has estab lished the seat of government at Agana, six miles from Port Louis D'Apra, and over this distance his men have to haul all the materials for the buildings they are erecting, as well as supplies. Hut the interesting part of the report relates to the reform begun, of which the governor says: "Having disposed of the priests, rapid progress will be made, and no further resistance will be encountered." He explains the two or ders, which are printed in English in the customary official form on the first English printing press in the island, and are distributed broadcast. The first of these Is calculated to compel each adult native to contribute to the support of the government by engaging in food production. This order is datej Oct. 4, and directs all who have no trade to plant cereals, vegetables, etc., under more or less severe penalties. It is stipulated that each citizen shall have at least twelve hens and one sow, and continue In possession of them in definitely. They must bring eggs, chick ens and vegetables to sell to the gov ernor's house and to the barracks at stated intervals, and they must pay their taxes and discharge other indebt edness. The other order was issued Sept. 15th, and was more radical. It demands that the concubinage which was general all over the Island shall stop Immediately. In this order Governor Leary moralizes as follows to the natives: "The exist ing custom of raising families of illegit imate children Is repulsive to the ideas H? :..-.wi:-?'.. of decency, 'antagonistic to moral ad vancement, Incompatible with the gen erally recognized customs of civilised society, a violation of' the accepted principles of Christianity and a most degrading injustice to the Innocent off spring who is not responsible for the conditions of his unfortunate exist ence." The governor in conclusion com manded Immediate wedlock for the whole adult population, and made the license and civil ceremony free until Nov. 3. As a result the officers in charge of licenses and marriages were worked half to death until nearly ev erybody on the island was legally mar ried. There was a rush to obey the or der, and In fact the people have shown a disposition to be obedient to any sug gestion from their governor. WIIEKE THEV (JOT CI1UHCII i,OOT Funston Says Spaniards Itobbcd Itulldings —. Our Soldiers liouitlit Plunder. San Francisco, Nov. 22.—Gen. Freder ick Funston, accompanied by his wife, arrived at Oakland late last night. He is on the way to Manila, where he will report for duty to Gen. Otis. 'I do not know anything about the robbing of churches in the Philippines by American soldiers," declared the general In an interview, "and while it may be true that some of our men were guilty of sacrilegious thievery, I can hardly believe it. During the war be tween the Spanish and Filipinos there were a number of native churches robbed by Spaniards. A great deal of plunder got Into the hands of China men, who eventually sold considerable of the stuff to the men of our army." The San Francisco Examiner prints articles'daily regarding the pawning of loot from Philippine churches by the United States volunteers, especially by members of the Twentieth Kansas Regiment. The Examiner says the Rev. Father McCourt, of St. Mary's church, visited twenty pawnshops and found church relics on sale In each. Lists of articles found In various shops are given. Gen. Frederick Funston, with Mrs. Funston, arrived in Oakland last night on a belated overland train. They went directly to the residence of Mrs. Funston's parents. "I feel that entirely too much .atten tion has been paid to me," Funston said. 'The glory belongs to the men in the ranks, the bravest fellows who ever shouldered a rifle and bore the hardships of campaigning under the most .arduous circumstances. But Kansas has not forgotten them, and she gave her men a grand welcome home. "I've no idea what will be my future work in the Philippines. As matters now stand, I shall report to Gen. Otis for orders. It is barely possible I may receive my assignment before I leave here, but that Is hardly likely, as the army organization and assignment of troops to larger commands than regi ments are being made at Manila."
