MacBride Sterrett, in the Sunday school room or the Church ot the Epiphany, yesterday afternoon. He dwelt princi pally on tiie state or etliicp, explaining that the State is tho ethical substance in which wc are born, and in which we must urow. The Stato is man at large, the larger and better self. The consti tution is th estate of the people, therefore the peoplo make their own constitution. Although wc do not make our own laws, they are our laws, for we live by them. Man is by nature a social animal and must go beyond himself to bo himself -and to Hive for others is tho best form of living for the self. Ho also stated that there were tTvo existing feelings, the formal fcling, that is, to do as you please, antr the real feeling, to obey the laws or God. i o k Increase in the Death Hate. According to the reports received at the health department during last week no death occurred in the District from any contagious or zymotic disease. As com pared with the previous 'week, there was a slight increase in the death rate. The principnl causes of tho mortality were heart troubles and lung complications. From the latter nearly one-third of all deaths resulted. There was an absence of malarial and diarrhoeal influences to a noticeable degree, there having been but two fatal cases of each. Infant mortality stood at the normal. No new cases of small-pox were reported, thus leaving but four cases under treatment under the direction of tho health department, and these are convalescing. 5 e t Temperance Women's Reception.

Vte trial of MtPs Mary Delancy, charged vm attempting to sot rire to St. Domi jricli and St. Patrick's churches, was begun in Judge Miller's court yesterday. Miss Ddaney sat at the counsel table with her lawyer, Mr. Lambert, and preserved the fame impassive countenance she has al ways worn. She paid careful attention to the testimony of wiiucbsos, but'ditl not show that any of it had the slightest effect on her. Lawyer Lambert entered a plea of not guilty for the defendant, nnd William Henderson, the colored Janitor of St. Dominic's, was called Up the stand, and testified to the discovery or rire In tho chapel of the church lust Thursday. Rev. Father Casey was called, and de scribed the location of tho chnpel and tho appearance of the floor after the fire was extinguished. He said that it seemed to have been saturated., wjfh coal oil. No coal oil is used nbouUvo building. Miss Barbara BIhchqff,,tho organist of St. Dominic's, testifiqd that she was in the choir gallery last Thursday about tho time the fire was discovered, and that a few minutes previous to that she saw a lady come out of theclmpel. She posi tively identified Miss DeTanf y as the one. Detective Carter was then sworn, and told the court of the manner in wluch Miss Delaney was arrested ,at the Elsemerc last Friday ,uprning. .,,Mr, Carter was very reticent, however, when .Tn'tirr MWnr -ioi-,.i how he had gotten information as to "the ' r!cntinp'o iHmitf,, ...wt ...v..... 1. '" .j!l ivyiiui nuij. iiL'tfuuuuiii, caus ing his honor to make some remarks re garding the "veil of mystery" which de tectives like to throw around their work. SMELLED THE COAL OIL. - Miss L6wfl-, the matron at No. l sta tion hoiise, testified pat the prisoner dress and satchel smclled very strongly of coal oil. Mips Lewis was of the opinion that tho prisoner's mind was unsound! Manager Boveii, of the Elsmere Hotel was next called to tho stand, andd testified that rrom ,her conduct at th; hotel, lmv .'bought her peculiar form of delusion was ' in imagining-that she was-a good public singer. Lawyer Lambert addressed the court in behalf of hlu client. Ho pointed out that tho testimony so far had utterly failed to connect the defendant with the charges. Judge Miller then reviewed the evidence n the case. He said that the prisoner's Jclubions in regard to the Catholic Church, and the disguised priests causing her trouble, undoubtedly appeared real to her, and these delusions being brought out on the day previous to that on which tho two fires occurred, gave rise Xo a sus picion that she did it. As a rule, he said, insane people or monomaniacs, when they commit an act of this character glory and exult in it, aud are perfectly willing to accept tho conse quences, but, on the other baud, cases are frequent where the offenses have been planned for days with great secrecy aud .aution. In regard to the identification or the pris jner, he said, tho witness, Miss Btsclioff, not only described her dress, but her face, and the peculiar expression thereou im orcsscd itself upon her memory. Tho coal oil is a very important feature in the case. The testimony showed that her clothes must have been almost saturated with the oil. He was satisfied, however, from the testi mony, that the prisoner was not in a con dition to bo held responsible for her ac lion, and thought that 6ho was entitled io maKe a statement, and he would be very glad to hear it if sho and her counsel so desired. A recess of twenty minutes followed the judge's remarks. " STATEMENT OFM1SSDELANEY. Miss Delaney took tho stand laatcr aud testified that she had been in the District about four months. She gave her age as thirty-five. She was a hospital nurse in St. Luke's Hospital in New Yorlc, until she injured herself in lifting a patient, when she was compelled to adopt dress-making as a means of earning a livelihood. She came to Washington first with the inten tion of making dresses, but failing in that, she decided to give concerts. She said that sho was a patient in St. Mary's Hospital in Milwaukee, undor treat ment Tor typhoid fevor, but was only there ten days, when she was taker, in a carriage by a priest to a hospital in the country some place, where, she was detained two montly?. She said that she had previously had some misunderstanding with tho priest who took her to the hospital, and thoy were not friends. Cross-examined, Miss Delanoy said that the priest was aware that she possessed a secret concerning him. "Were there no charges of insanity or anything of the kind made when they took you to the hospital?" asked the court. "The priest told themun in charge that I was out or my mind, and that they must keop me there, but I only had the fever working on me. I was only under treat ment there six weeks. The rest of tho lime I worked as a nurpo." She gave a very clear account of her whereabouts during and on the day of tho fires. About 11 o'clock, she said, sho went down to breakfast, after which sho went to tho Grand Army Hall to get a package or tickets which had been left there. From there she went to Sanders & Stay man's music store on F street to return sonio bonowed music, and then "returned to the hotel and took luncheon. After lunch she went to the Palais Royal, and Woodward & Lothrop's, pur chasing some handkerchiefs at one of those places, and returning to her hotel, where she remained the rest of jthe day. She did not, she said, enter a church that day, and has never been in St. Dominic's but once and was uevor in Sf. Patrick's. Sho was not aware of the cbargo against herun tll she was lokced up in tho atalion houso .Friday. CRANK EXPERT TNGERSOLL. Miss Delaney was allowed to resume her seat, and Mr. C. R. Ingersoll was thon called. Mr. Ingersoll testified that ho met Miss Delanoy at a restaurant on Third street, near Pennsylvania avenue, where she used, tq take her meals. Mr. Inger soll told the court that h was personally acquainted with 800 lunatics, as he made it a sort of hobby, and he knew a good deal about them. As eoon as ho saw MIsa Delanoy ho remarke'd to tho proprietor of tho restaurant; 'That woman's crazy." "What made you think sho was crnzy?" asked the court. "Well, sho had a sort of cast iron ex pression which only insnuo people have. Sho hasn't got it on now, b,it I suppose this Is an off day. I have known people who only got bad three days In a year, but when they did they wanted to 3dll everyone in sight." "You know, they say that people like you think everybody is insane," remarked the coirt. "Well, Igre?s they aie, pretty much," replied the witness. Mr. Ingersoll said that he went to the station house to see M!.s Delaney after she was arretted, taking a copy of The Times, which contained the story, with him, and informed her of what she was charged. He detected no smell otcoa1 oil. "Are 7our olCactonea all right?" asked Mr. Mtllownoy. "Yes, sir; I'm a good smeller." Tht satchel carried by the prisoner was produced, however, and Mr. Icgersoll ac knowledged that the odor of coal oil was very stroug. Miss Delaney seemnd to be very much amused at the testimony ot Mr. Ingersoll, smiling" broadly (several times during the examination. Judge Miller decided that it would bo neceeeary to hold the case over until Fri day, when a more thorough investigation will be held, and In the meantime Mius Delanoy will be confined at No. 6 police station house. a o t NEW CODE OF LAYS HEEDED. Distinguished Jurists and Lawyers En lighten the Board of Trade's Guests. The Board of Trade und a' number of distinguished guests, presout by invitation, listened last night to a learned discussion of law, the lack of law, and tho dif ficulty experienced in the administration of law, at a ifieeting held in the Builders' Exchange building, on Thirteenth street, the theme being "The Necessity of a New Code for the District." At the conclusion of the able argumonts advanced, there was an informal buffet lunch. Justice C. C. Call, or tho District Supremo Court, was the speaker or tho evening. Justice Shphard, of tho Court of Appeals; Justice Hngner, of tho District Supreme Court; Judges Kimball and Miller, or the police court; District Attorney Berney, Gen. Butterworth, were each called upon, and all agred with Justice Call, and their remarks wero m line with his on the gen eral subject. Presid'nt Warner presided with his ac customed grace, and just before dismissing the aud.flnce to the lunch room, said the early spring programme provided for a clam bake and ho hoped they would all bco to having their ntlmes placed on the in vitation list. Gen. Catton introduced a resolution pro viding for the appointment of a committee of sevon, to be known as tho "LegarCom mitte," to prepare and submit to the Attorney General a petition setting forth the necessity for early legislation upon the subject, and to also submit tho sub stance of tho petition to both Houses of Congress, and take such othor action as may be necessary.

The Assets Arc Placed nt SI 02,000 and Liabilities. S05.000. Robert Leitch t Son, brass founders, at ;$os,, 1214 and 1216 D street northwest, yesterday made a"4 assignment for the bene fit of their creditors. Mr. James W. Somer ville, or Thomas SomervUle & Son, is as signee. The assets are placed at $102, 131.51; liabil.ties, 65,451.83. The firm consists of Robert Leitch, of No. 327 Sixth street southeast, and James M. Leitch, of No. 221 Fifth street southeast. The causa of the failure is the long-continued business depress-on and the conse quent difficulty of collection. "The assets consist or the real estate where their factory and office are, being part of square 293, valued at $72,061; machinery, $5,000; stock, $6,000; clue from John Lyon, $5,-118; E.

Thompson's Statement- Editor Times; Your ubiquitous report ers have shown their ability to make a mountain of a mole hill, In the somewhat sensational article you publish this morn ing or a suit upon alleged debt in which I am plaintiff and C. II. J. Taylor, recorder ot deeds, derendant. You tell the slory in a rather entertaining way, but inject Into the "tale of woe" Mr. "Taylor's side of the case" vicariously from tho lips of his attorney. The attorney must have small hope of success in trying tho issue in court, or he would not be so eager to "try it in Ihe newspapers." As Mr. Taylor's attorney has been be trayed into some awkward errors, permit mo to set him right. Your reporter quotes him as saying that his client was greatly surprised by our "bill; that his client re cently demanded of the Chronicle a retrac tion of an unfavorable publ.cation, and, to quote his words: "Mr. Thompson responded by sending a bill for $300. This was the Iirst intima tion Mr. Taylor had that Mr. Thompson had an v bill against him whatever." Yet we hold a letter from Mr. Taylor in his own handwriting, dated October 20, 1894, acknowledging receipt of such "in timation" of our charges lor work done, Another rather grotesque statement from Mr. Taylor's attorney is printed by you in these words: "While the statements in the Chronicle article or Maich 3 are false, Mr. Taylor does not consider the Chronicle of sufficient importance for him to take any nolico of it." He doesn't? Why then demand a letraction ot our article or March 3 complained of? Mr. Taylor wrote us sonic letters in 1894 during the confirmation struggle. In one of them he said, indicating his estimate of the importance of the Chronicle: "Dear Mr. Thompson: This is to some extent your fight (the contention for the confirmation) do what you can for me in every way you can." In another, dated April 20, 1894, ho says: "My good friend: You may think it strange that I have not been in to see you this week. I will explain all when wo meet. Leave no stone unturned. I mean to win this fight. If I do I fchall try eamestly to please my friends and disappoint my enemies. I will try to get in to see you this afternoon. Yours, etc., C. H.J.TAYLOR." And many others of same tenor. Your article in this morning's Times having given Taylor's side, you will no doubt fraternally publish this, as in small degree rephcativc and the "side" of Yours, J. 'Q.THOMPSON. o Monterey Ordered to Peru. Orders have teen sent from the Navy Department to More Island, Cal., to have the United States coast defense ship Mou terey proceed to Peru.

ATTEMPT TO BURN' ST. WARY'S Purochla! School on rifth Street Visited by Another Arson Flcmi, When the janitor of St. Mary's parochial school, adjoining tho Catholic church by that name, at tho crhefor Fifth and Wash ington streets northwest-, entered the primary department yesterday morning he discovered that an attempt had been made by unknown parties to fire the structure. Fully one gallon of coal oil had been poured on the floor between the desks, and a fuse or train or gunpowder about ten inches loLg touched off by the would-be incendiary. A burned match was found near tho coal oil stain, and the fuse or powder had just Oared up and scorched the floor. Entrance to the school was gained through a rear window on Wash ington street. The atttmpt to burn the place was a bungling one, and itiS1 believed the would-bo firebug committed the act to create a sensation and not to buTu the icbool or dhurch building. Otherw so tho korotenc would have been ponred under the fat pine wainscot ng, about one yard from where the fluid was epllled. The structure in wh.ch the attempt was made is m the cxtif me rear or ihe schools and church Had the place Lcen success fully fired it is not believed any damage would have resulted'to tho handsome church edifice proper. The police and church authorises be lieve it was the work of some m-fchievoys boy or crank who had caught the incendiary fever fiom recent attempts to burn St. Dominic's and St. Patrick's churches. Detectives, Bonrdman and Weedon are working on the case. " HAMMOND'S ASSETS LARGE. Dealer in Building Materials Assigns but Owes Less Than He. Possesses. John B.
