One of the most important visitors at the White House yesterday was Archbishop Chapelle. of New Orleans, Apostolic Dele gate appoint fd by the Pope some time ago to look after the affairs of the Catholic I "eigium i-aui Hagemans. uonsui uen churches in the Philippine Islands and i eral. dogate from the Government or Bel Porto Rice. Stories of alleged desecration I 8"'": Jacques de Brouwer, delegate from of church property on these islands have j been current for some time, and, as the pope desires barraonv between, the churches nt tne officials in charge of the govern- ; ment affairs, it was decided to send Arch- bishop Chapel le to make an investigation . of the existing conditions. Archbishop Cfaanelle was closeted with the President j for over an hour, during which time the . matter was thoroughly and seriouslv dis- csssed. The Archbishop will stay in Washington for several days before departing for Ma nila. He does not know whether he will eail from New York or San Francisco. As he speaks the Spanish language fluently, he will net encounter many obstacles after his arrival at Manila. An Important question which will de velop during Archbishop Chapelle's visit here will be the future of the Catholic Church in Cuba. The Cubans are said to be pressing for home rule in Church mat ter, as well as in civil government. They want native Cuban priests whenever it is possible, rather than clergymen assigned tc duty from other points. Some of the promi nent Cnban representatives here will pre. j sent we maier u .'ircuouurop wnapeiie. who was the apostolic delegate in Cuba for a long time. Archbishop Phapelle's report will be for warded to President McKicley as soon as a thorough casvaes of the situation is made. AH31ESTED AT A WEDDING.

AKnin.st the Diamond Company. NEW YORK, Oct 21. What promises to be a lively fight between concerns each representing a large capital had its begin ning soon after the filing today with the secretary of state of New Jersey, at Tren ton, of the report of the newly organized American Match Machine Company. The fight Is between it and the Diamond Match Company, in which Edwin Gould is largely interested, and which up to the present time has enjoyed a monopoly of manufac turing machines for the making of matches. The American Match Machine Company has the following organization: President, Ferrill C. Dinniny, jr.; vice president, Wil liam F. Hutchinson; secretary, Wallace A. Downs, and treasurer, Charles W. Drake. The board of directors consists of Ferrill C. Dinniny, jr., Wallace A. Downs, Charles W. Drake, and Frank H. Wall. The company ; is capitalized at $100,000, but it is asserted that there is more than $5,000,000 back ot the company, and that many millions of dollars more are available if tne Diamond Match Company should decide to make a fight against the new company. No time Is to be lost by the new company in entering upon active operations. On Monday next the manufacture of machine?, with which match factories ill be in stalled, will commence. A large plant has been erected at Bound Brook, N. J., with a daily capacity of match-making machin ery equal to S00 gross of 100 boxes. Al ready orders have been received for ma chinery for five factories which are to be established in cities between New York and Chicago. One of these cities is in Pennsylvania and another in New Jersey. The capacities of the different plants range from 500 gross of 100 boxes of matches daily up to 4,000 gross. The American Match Manchine Company also intends to enter tho match-making fleid, and will establish a factory at Og denshurg, N. Y. A large number of orders has been placed with the new company for machinery and also for matches. One well known jobber, it Is said, has offered to take four carloads of matches each week for a nerlod of two years, and to bind his offer by making a contract to that effect. Hitherto all the patents for match-making macninery in this country and several in Germany have been held by the Diamond Company, which thus was secure in its monopoly. Wallace A. Downs, the secretary of the American Match Machine Company, was at one time largely interested in the company, which was absorbed by the Diamond Match Company when Edwin Gould became con nected with the concern. The patents for the machines were chiefly the invention of Colonel Downs. After he severed his con nection with the Diamond Company Col onel Downs set his inventive faculties at work and evolved a machine which i3 said to be a great improvement on his former invention. It is this machine that the American Company is to manufacture. -None of the machines are to be sold outright, but will be operated on royalties. AN AGED MOTHER'S PLEA. She Seeks to Compel ITer Son 1 Help Iter. MiLFORD. Pa., Oct. 21. At the October term of the Pike county courts, in session here, Mrs. Elmira Quick, seventy years old, who is a town charge of Lackawaxen township and who astonished people here when she bid herself in some time ago, ap peared as prosecutor against her son, Syl vanus E. Quick, of Port Jervis, N. Y., on a charge of non-support. Feeble and bowed with her years, the old woman took the stand. She said that her son had entered into an agreement with her to pay her $2.50 per month during the remainder of her natural life, and she showed a paper to that effect. The small monthly stipend had been paid regularb until August. 1S98, when payments ceased. "I ask little of my son," said Mrs. Quick to Judge Purdy. "I was left with a large family of children when his father died. I supported them by hewing fence posts, railrdad ties, and like hard labor. My son Is married, but has only one child. He works on the Erie Railroad." Attorney Marvin, in behalf of the de fendant, said the son was willing to take his mother to his home in Port Jervis and provide for her, but could not possibly af ford to pay the monthly allowance. The court thought the defendant ought to be willing to pay the amount asked, and con tinued the case until December. Quick gave bond for his appearance. Price of Plfr Iron. PITTSBURG. Oct. 21.

A IlnmlMome Confederate Shnft Tra velled ia Virginia. ONANCOCK, Va., Oct. 21. There was a throng from all parts of the Eastern Shore yesterday at the unveiling of the Confederate monument. Confederata flags were everywhere. A large one floated from a pole seventy-five feet high. A battle flag waved over the speakers' stand. The exercises began with a prayer from Rev. Mr. Griffith, an old soldier, after which Beverly B. Munford, of Richmond, delivered an oration. He revel wed the history of Virginia from its origin up to the close ot the Civil War. He spoke par ticularly of the Federal Constitution, the question of State's rights, secession, and slavery. A dinner was served by the la dies of Parksley, after which an appeal was made for contributions for the monu ment. A handsome sum was contributed. The adjutant of Harmanson West Camp, John H. Wise, called the incomplete roll of the Confederate soldiers from the East ern Shore, standing on the base of the monument. Of this partial list of about 300 there were but few to answer to their names. Instead there was often heard the words, "Dead," "Killed before Peters burg," "Killed at the Crater," and so on until almost every battlefield was named. After the muster of the veterans Miss Margaret West, daughter of Gen. H. M. West, and sister of Otho K. West, one of the war victims for whom the camp is named, ascended the platform and pu ling a cord unveiled the monument amid cheers and the boom of cannon. The monument is of granite, of beautiful design, and is about thirty feet in height It is surmounted by the figure of a Con federate infantryman of heroic size at "parade rest." On the front is the coat-of-arms of Virginia in bronze. On the op posite side is a Confederate battle flag, also in bronze. Inscriptions are upon the four sides of the base, and are as follows: "Erected by the Harmanson West Camp Confederate Volunteers, in memory of their dead comrades from Acconsae and Northampton counties. Virginia." "They died for the principles upon which all true republics are founded." "They fought for conscience sake and died for right." "At the call of patriotism and duty they encountered the perils of the field and were faithful even unto death." EOR BALTIMORE'S ZOO. X Black Mexican AVolt Added to the Colleetioa. BALTIMORE, Md., Oct. 21. A thorough bred black wolf arrived in Baltimore yes terday morning and was sent direct to Druid Hill Park, where it now forms a part of the rapidly increasing zoo, in charge of Keeper Charles Morgan. The wolf Is a native of Mexico, and his color at present is a dark grey, but. it is said, he will shed this coat as he grows older, and his next suit of hair will be black. There was no separate cage to pat the new acquisition in. and he is housed with the old prairie wolf, or coyote, and the two appear to be on the most friendly terms. The park board is preparing to introduce a number of other animals in a short time. Another small brown bear has been order ed, and it is expected a timber grey wolf will be bought to go with the silver grey wolf already at the zoo. When th new bear comes there will be a serious ques tion as to where to house him. In the old pit there arc already three bears, while the new pit is occupied by the cinnamon brown bear, which killed the big black bear some weeks ago, and has since been kept by himself. He is still fierce, and no one dares enter the pit except Keeper Mor gan. It is thought that tho new bear, being of the same species and family as the lighter, will be safe in the pit with him. Without exception, the entire menagerie at the park is in fine condition, and every animal and bird is healthy and well. Keeper Morgan Is now busy preparing winter quarters for them, which consist of bedding for the bears and the lining of the backs and sides of the cages of the other animals. Francis II. Waters, general superinten dent of the parks, will recommend to the park board the construction of a larger animal house In Druid Hill Park and a reorganization of the zoological depart ment. Mr. Waters believes that one build ing should be constructed for the animals and another for the birds. The two build ings,, he estimates, will not cost more than $5,000. A GRACIOUS ACT. Men.
