. J.- "" -v - iigS! THE "WASHrnGTON TIMES, PBIDAT?, . JTOE 22, 1894. ';sfr..-w -a. i- it e 5PP i BITTER SpiNST MR. CLARK House Committee Angered by the Arch- ib itect's Refusal to Resign. WOULD ABOLISH THE OFFICE Official Action to Bo Taken Calling the Presi dent's Attention Anlmns of the Attack Said to Be Hi3 Tailnre to Oive Places to Congressmen's Constituents. r The warfare began by the House Commit tee on Ventilation and Acoustics, of which Mr. Shell is chnirmau, Rgalnst Architect Clark, of the Capitol building, is rapidly de veloping into a sensation. But the light promises to be a vigorous one on both sides. Mr. Clark has already refused to resign, and ha reiterated that refusal yesterday when questioned as to his plans In the matter. The difficulty is stated by Mr. Shell to be that Mr. Clark is insisting upon pursuing old faahioned methods'in the performance of the duties of his office, and that he had opposed Vigorously and unnecessarily the proposed plan of ventilation suggested by the commit tee in their report to the House, which bears date of May 8 last It was further charged against Arohitect Clark that he had an unnecessarily large force of men upon the rolls of his office; that cer tain necessary and proper improvements about the Capitol building wore delayed be cause, according to Mr. Clark's idea, they were not indispensable, and that when he ap peared before the committee at the recent meetings ho showed little of the technical knowledge which a man in his position should exhibit. The committee committed the rather un usual act of calling upon Mr. Clark to resign. As he is a Presidential appointee and not a mere servant or tbellousa, he very naturally refused to comely. The result was that Mr. Ebell has prepared and intends to introduce to-day, after it has been seen by all the mem bers of the committee,' a resolution declaring the office of architect of the Capitol abol ished. CAixrco the rnnsiDEST's attention. H4 claims that such a resolution does not lequire concurrence by the Senate, as it is Sufficient to call the attention of the President to the matter. On the other side matters Stand as follows: Mr. Clark has been the architect of the Capitol since 18G3, having been appointed to that position by President Johnson. His administration of the office, it is claimed by his friends, has been satisfac tory during the twenty-nlno years he has held office. The present difficulty is declared to be a mere attempt to get him out of his office because he is not altogether yielding enough to certain Congressmen. With regard to his alleged opposition to the plan for ventilation recommended by Mr. Shell's committee, it is said that all that Mr. Clark did was to oppose the plan suggested by certain Chicago parties, friends of Con gressman Durborrow from that city, who is a memberof the committee nnd active against Mr. Clark. He has never endeavored to pre vent the House adopting whateier plan of ventilation seemed to it proper, but sim ply made recommendations in his official capacity. With regard to the charges that Mr. Clark has been slow and old-rashioned in his con duct of the architect's offlco, it is anwered Viat there is a perfect stream of people with flew plans for ventilation, sanitation, etc., Whoso suggested improvements are costly and needless, and that It is the proper busi ness of tho architect of the Capitol to treat these as they deserve. ANSWEB TO OSE OF THE CHABOE8. The charge that there have been an un necessary number of employes upon the rolls of the office are answered by the statement that each one wasifor a few days only, in order to divido work equitably, and that n large number of these were given work be cause Congressional -pressure necessitated it. The present outlook is that Mr. Clark will retain his office. He has many friends, both In the House and In the Senate, who are out spoken in his favor, and the names of several Senators are mentioned who will see that he is treated fairly. This is not the first effort that has boon made to get him out of office. In 1863. dur ing President Cle eland's first administra tion, the stonecutters' union preferred charges against Sir. Clark because it was said be insisted on having certain work done by contract rather than day's work. Tho re sult was tho preparation of a volume of over 200 pages of testimony, which was presented to the President. Ho refused to remo e Mr. Clark. It is generally believed at the Capitol that there is a personal animus in this attack on Mr. Clark, nnd that as he withstood a bimilar attack before he will do it again.

Speculation Dull and Business Unusually Light Sugar the Most Active Stock of the Industrials. New York, June SL The snare Speculation was dull again to-day, the volume of business being lighter even than on yesterday. And is not unusual on an inactive market, the trend of prices was generally downward by reason of the lack of supporting orders. In Sugar, which itas most active of the list, the trading wai languid, eicept at Intervals when the bears made a small demonstration against the stock. After an advance of H in the opening deal ings the shares declined gradually Hi to 8H, some small lots of long stock being brought out by the decline. .At the lower figures purchases to cover short contracts were made, and a re covery of 1 per cent, ensued, leaving a loss of Si percent on the day.

Important Decision Defining the Power of Episcopal Parish Registers. AsSArous, lid., June 21. Tho court of pppeals of jllarvland has rendered an im portant decision in regard to the vestry act of the Frotostant Episcopal Church. Dr. Thomas II. Brashawi of St. Margaret's, Westminister parish, of this state, sued out a writ of mandamus to compel the register of the parish to enroll him as a member of the Protestant Episcopal Church in said parish. The court below dismissed the mandamus, holding that the register's duties were judi cial; the court above, in an opinion by Judge Page, reverses this decision and practically decides that tho duties of the register aro merely ministerial Knd thu sole question to be decided by the register is, was tho applicant a member of tho Frotcstant Episcopal Church?

They collided with a small delivery wagou at the corner of Eleventh and II, and proceeded doun Eleventh street to Pennsylvania avenue.

"Oh, beg pardon, sir; your young lady givo me this before we left shore to hand along to you to-day. She thought you'd be out of the way of post offices, and this Is a Christmas card." Watson's voice came up from below. "What's that you two are talking about? Is this Christmas day?" "That's it, old man. The compliments of the season to you. Health, wealth, and hap piness. You've got 'em, all three." "I have tho first two. though why on earth you should lav down the law about the third I can't see. What was that letter you got?" "A card from Elslo.

ENNIS Sermon ef This Cleryman Characterized as aa Exhaustive Construction of Bidiculons Conjecture Theosophy Pnt forward as the All-Embracing Creed. Ueturott haU was crowded to the doors last night by an interested audience which gathered to listen tc the theosophltt, Claude Falls Wright, who replied to assertions made last Sunday by Rev. Dr. H. W. Ennls, of the Western Prseby terlan church, concerning theosophy. In the audience were some of the best-known theoso phlsts In the city, and in a 'box were seated President G. M. Coffin, of the BlavaUky Theo sophlcal Society, and his wife. Mr. Wright was a pupil of Mme. Blavatsky during the last three years of her life, during which time he acted as her confidential secre tary. Since her death he has been actively en gaged In the work of his society, and has like every other theosophlcal propagandist, labored entirely without remuneration. President Coffin made the Introductory ad dress Be stated that the society had no creed or rule Theosophy taught a man to lead the life of the soul, and in that way to cultivate the virtues of patience, honesty, humanity, ana kindliness. Mr. Wright's address, he aaid, was the result of an attack made on tho society by the Rev. Howard W. Ennls, and he left It to the audience tojudge which is right Mr. Wright when Introduced, said: "I was In hopes that I should not speak to you alone to night I had expected that a repr ntative from one of the churches would be here. I was disappointed, and therefore I am to be alone and uncontradicted In my remarks concerning theosophy snd the churches "I am not here to attack any church or any In dividual religion. I am not reedy to say I have the truth and that no one olse has It The Theo sophlcal Society was created in order to embrace all the religions of the world. It Is therefore not for me to attack Christianity, for it is on that our society Is founded. KKV. DR. ENSIS' SXIUIOlf. "Now, let me tell you upon what that lecture of Mr. Ennls was founded. I had not intended to use his name, but I am compelled to do It Two weeks ago I lectured In a small hall In this city on 'Occult Development' At the conclusion ot my lecture I wan introduced to a person who gave his name as Ennis. He said to me: 'W1U you allow me to ask you two questions?' 1 re plied that I was willing, and he said: 'How do theosophlsts regard God?1 and 'What Is your be lief concerning reincarnation?' "I told him that those were questions that It would be hard to answer In a moment He then Immediately attacked something that I had said during my lecture. I replied with an argument, and he said hastily: '1 only come to ask ques tions.' "1 did not get time to talk to him as fully I should have liked. The next that I knew I heard of bis lecture. I have it with me, and I must say that it is an exhaustlveconstructlonof ridiculous conjectures. "lie referred to Mme. Blavatsky's legerdemain or conjuring tricks and said that they would secure her renown even In India. In reply I would say, in no more uncharitable spirit than Mr. Eunls felt, that Jesus performed miracles. If he brands one an Imposture, why not the other? Mr. Ennls wouia throw up his hands with holy horror if I were to refer to the miracle of the loaves and fishes as legerdemain, and yet ho calmly stands on the platform and attacks xaj creed. The only difference between Mr. Enuls and myself is that I can Injure him and he cannot hurt me. HEX MUST SEEK TEE TRUTH. "Just as In other religions Is It In theosophy that men must struggle and strive after tho true light The teaching is not alL Mr. Ennls says that as we are not teaching the true religion; that we are giving a religion of broken hearts That is untrue, for there is Just as much joy and happiness as can be adduced from other relig ious. "It is claimed by Dr. Ennls that we refer to the Bible as a French novel That is untrue. Those who have attended my lectures know that lhare often quoted the Bible, and that In all earnestness "Now comes our relation to the great power termed God. We do not claim that Jesus is a son of God. We do claim that there is more than one God. Those who will go back and stu3y the Sanskrit, ou which the Old Testament is founded, will find that the Jews bad many gods, of whom Jehovah was the great tribal God. Moses says in Numbers: Do not revile the gods ' Note the plural here. Ihe Bible is illiterate throughout, and tboso who search to leain will know this Theosophy Is tho hardest religion of all In the ltoman Catholic church and other churches the parishioners and worshippers pay their money and are told what to believe." Here a man in the audience objected to the reference to the Koman Catholic church, but he was soon satisfied that no offense was meant "Dr. Ennls says," continued the speaker, "that theosophy is so hard that no one can understand it, and that the Christian religion Is such that a child can comprehend it I should like to ask Dr. Ennls to pick up Revelations and explain it in five minutes A VEHICLE FOE MOXEY MAKISO. "I have said and I contend it is the truth that the church Is a vehicle for money making. This Is angrUy denied. I refer to the high salaries paid ministers, bishops, and archbishops, and then respectfully refer these people to Jesue' words: AU thou hast sell, and give to the poor.' "Dr. Enuls would say there Is no tenderness In theosophy. I say that much of the religion that men learned at their mother's knee, the kindliest and tenderest religion of all. Is the kind of religion that he rediscovers when he enters the theoophist's fold. Some will say that this mother's-kneo religion Is fairy-like. I say no It is the bravest, truest, and most gentle of all common sense "Dr. Ennls says that theosophlsts know noth ing about their religion, and adds that in a week's study he S,new more about theosophy than theosophlsts did themselves. This Is the cry of the Ignorant, the dumb rattlo of the Idol worshipper. He said as did the Pharisee: I am greater and holier than tbou. I thank God that 1 am not as other men.' He wound upbypra lng for us. That is what I call, to use a vulgar phrase, playing It low down on theosophlsts." FKEE XF.LIGIOX BACK OF THE BIBLE. Mr Wright then went on to attack those per sons who should be teachers, but are deluding those who come to them for the light He said that ministers were placing before the public an alleged authentic religion easy to understand. Then he added: "I say that tho true religion lies behind the Bible. It gives the clue It gives the leading lines and to those who will study and work the truth shall be known and then this so-called easy Christianity will be seen as a fiimsy tangle of fairy story fretwork." The speaker then began an exhaustlv e out line of the theosophlcal belief. He read from a book tho leading tenets of the society. He re ferred tn the similarity in the natures of Christ and Buddba. He showed many points in the life of Buddha that were identical with theso of Jesus and then added that as the Buddhistic history waB by far the oldest the claims about the life of Christ were forgeries and only pla giarisms of the history of Buddha. He added: "I don't say this to hurt Christianity. 1 say theosophy tries to reconcile all religions, and it la the true religion. Others are faulty. This is the combination of the great truths and the God given light, not Bible myths, and those who will study shall know the truth." At the conclusion of the lecture, which was en thusiastically received, a half hour was given over to a general discussion. In which the audience freely Joined.

I thoucht we condemned It at Marseilles. You might have brought up some better stuff to-day. Why, that's lite drinking molasses and bran dy. No, thanks, old man. Poison yourself if you like, but none for roe." For a good minute he said nothing, only bit his lip and stared at me. Then be burst out with, "What do you mean by this inso lence?" "I mean simply that I don't like your tap of liquor, old man; your opinion of the stuff, f you remember, coincided with mine." "Peter, ro out. I have something to jay to Mr. Vincent in private. Shut the door after you, and stay out till I call. Now, sir, the high laud of North Majorca is visible from tho deck. If you choose to Jeave me, I will have the launch put into the water and steam got up at once. Or will you drink the sherry?" "Clearly," thought I, "he's in for a dose of illness of some sort, nnd I must keep cool and humor him." So I laughed easily, and said, "O, very well, if you make a point of It; band across the tumbler. I'm too hungry, and the glare outside is a heap too strong to court a marooning just now. I took tbe tumbler from his clammy fingers and was going to put It to my lips without further ado when he stopped me. "Hold on, we must have a toast. Drink to Elsie."

Why should I refuse to drink to her when Yes, Tom, I'll join you." And he reached down n decanter of port. Now, ho hated port at all times, and as port in such an atmosphere as we treru under then is nothing short of Aceldama, I saw fit to ex postulate. "Kerosene or copying-ink if you like, man, but not port. Why not green seal sherry?" "What is there that makes you so sus picious?" "Who said I was suspicious?" "I do. You're suspecting me all the time. You think I want to polscn you." Now, I had not thought so in the least be fore, but I knew it then tor certain. So I sipped at the sherry, and, tasting something in it that was oflensiey sweet, spat my mouthful on the floor and pitched the tumbler through the skylight. "You bought some cyanide of potassium at Nice, and that's what you've loaded this wine wish. My amiablo cousin, what on earth are you trying to murder mo for?

I hesitated, watching him narrowly. From beneath the table the black muzzle of the re volver rose steadily till it glared at me be tween the eyes. "Pick up your drink, Tom. It may be good whiskey. Anyhow, it is not green seal sherry." And tbe black muzzle ot the pistol swelled before me till I could almost have dived into if. "Choose, Tom; I shall not invito you again."

We lifted tbe glasses to one another and gulped the liquor. Mine burned like fire. The tumbler lurched from the table with a crash on to the floor, and I wedged myself back into a corner of the sofa locker, expect ing every moment to feel the pangs of a hor rible death.
