VICTORY WAS FAIRLY WON As Honorable to AVIn a Debate on Re buttal as to Win at IlaschaU In the Last Half of the Ninth. Alt' I TV f-T.r).., Tt..l, nt T.1.a.am 'er ;i yesterday answered the recent erltl latj ij clsm of the. decision In .the Vale caul Harvard debate. His reply, appear MiiK In the New York Evening I'ost, r( la as follows: ' art 1 A letter -In regard to the Yale-Har-fCl vard debate Is printed In your paper thl sjof May 6, over the signature of "H. C. t'f iL." If the writer had merely ex- vt a nressert his nntnlnn Vi Ihn Vntn lm .u: 'debated better than .the Harvard team. j ;ne wouia nave been entirely within ty. this rights, and his Judgment would v ?have carried weight corresponding to ,TJHour estimate of his Intelligence and 'Imnnrtlulltv 'hi But ,nRtead of favoring tis with i 'such an unsolicited but entirely prop ff er exPrrss,on M h' personal judg- ' i;;,nipnt, he has seen fit to accuse the Harvard tenm of unfairness, the 'Judges of partiality, and the Intercol ,'leglate debating system of a tendency i'ti develop "slick lawyers." These are "f'-jtrrave moral accusations; and the iilwrlter makes them over his Initials, In y,!rnft form of Insinuations, without i Eiroof, and In a manner whim calls .'or denial and rebuke. ;J "H. C. L." practically asserts (1) '.hat the Judges were chosen from In stitutions which are "directly Interest ed In perpetuating the stupid assump tion that the university at New Ha j en Is strong only In the exercises of rawn;" (2) that the rules of debate fput a premium on trick tactics; and & .3) that the Harvard team disre garded "the finer ethics of public dls- tussloti." None of these assertions Is uppnrted by the facts, and to publish ihem In the form of Innunendo Is to tffend against good manners and fair 'lay. ! (1.) The committee of Judges were 'hosen, undpr the rules, by both par ikes to the debate, und were absolutely iithout bias, either In regard to the iierlts of the question, or In regard to he teams who debated it. The Judges ay have been Ignorant or Ineompo t'nt, according to the standard of "H. if. L.," but they were not prejudiced. !;hey came from Princeton and Brown Universities and Dartmouth college, ind the assertion that these Institu tions are partial to Harvard as against tie, or directly interestea m. main inlng the superiority of Yale, In what Vj'j;l. C. L." picturesquely but vaguely skills "exercises of brawn," will seem uighalil to every college mun In 'merlca. (2.) The rules of Intercollegiate de- Vte have been framed by mutual jtreement, with the purpose of giving jith Bides an equal chance. Having Win adopted they ought to be ob Jrved. It seems to be a physical ne jsslty that somebody should speak 1st and somebody should speak last, i Is no more, unfair that a debate jould be won on rebuttal, than that jbaseball game should be won In the ist half of the ninth Inning, when le other side has no opportunity to juke any more runs. .(3.) As a matter of fact, both ,les In the Harvard-lale debate act i with admirable candor and falr ss. There wua no twisting of state nts, no trickery. No new argu 1 nt was sprung at the close of the ibato, but the preceding arguments ;d replies were summed up with ieelslon and force. Any Intelligent Id reasonable father might have 'iyti proud to have a son on either of ose debating teams. L have heard a good many debates, t I have never heard one that was fUer, closer, or more fairly won. The ' ;jgcs were unanimous In their de L (' ion, which was reached, In accord- " 'e with the printed Instructions, by . ,allot taken before consultation. In J daalslon tho pjeslding officer, a Yale man and chief Justice of the state of Connecticut, agreed, Yale stated her case strongly, but did not defend It quite so well. Harvard gave a more moderate statement und a little better support. 1 have taken the pains to leply to "H. ,'. L.'s" letter, not because of Its essential Importance, but because lt( Is one, of those too-frequent "Om municatlons In which evil Is Insinu ated without, proof, and which tends to Introduce a hostile, Jealous, and suspicious spirit Into our university contests, Intellectual and physical. It Is a pity that letters of this type should be written. "11. ('. L." says that he Is not a Yule man, but "an outsider." This statement has the marks of probabil ity. Yale men are not "kickers," nor are they In the habit of trying to re trieve a game which has been hon orably lost by aeeuslng their oppo nents or the umpire of bad faith. They play their best, and then accept the score with equanimity. 1IKNRY VAN Di'KE. Princeton, May G. rem oi,d agk i-kxsioxs. Asqtiitli Announces IfN Scheme Presenting Ihirtgct. In London, May 7. Premier Asqulth, In presenting the budget to the bouse of commons to-day, announced his plan for the pensioning of the aged.

It has been the rule that the presentation of the budget Is by the chancellor of the ex chequer, but this year the work was done 1V the premier, because the re cent changes In the cabinet were thought better, Insomuch as NJr. As qulth, In his capacity of chancellor V the exchequer, had prepared the budget, that he should himself explain It to parliament Concerning the main feature the matter of old-age pensions Mr. As qulth said It had been decided to rule out all contributory schemes and pro vide the pensions from the national treasury. pnESIDKXT WOWF, COAT or MAIL And Cfldrtfi Bullets Bowled Him Oyer Many Kxpoiitlotm. v Puerto Cortez, Honduras, April 80, j via New Orleans, Afay 7.

AMUSEMENT ALTERATION Discipline to IV Amended to ( over, In General Terms Such as Are (JurMlonnblp, Baltimore, May 7,-The address of the blshopg of the Methodist Episcopal church, delivered at the general con ference today, deals with many que. Hons now ngltited by church members. The bishops declare their unanimous opinion that they' ought not to be chaiged with the investltr.iMon nf nv charges nf heresy, condemn the ln-iiv of divorce law and deal w ith the ques tion of amusements. Tl . J i me cntircn has not yet i reaened unanimity touching the re moval of the time limit from the pas torate, denounce child labor and ex press sallsfact.on at the defeat of the attempt to roe-st-ihllsh the army can teen. The reading of the address was fre quently lnterruptd , by applause ,u Blfhop Goodsell voiced some telling point. When he had r-nd a scathlir.; denunciation of the liquor tradle he called upon the delegates to rise, and with the bishop's pledge, "eternal en mity to this foe of man and God," the entire delegates started to sing "Amer ica, the great throngvcaught up the hymn and the hall resounded with Its strains. IAs the last refrain ceased seme one began the hymn "Glory, Glory Hallelujah, Our God Is Marching On." This new outlet for the enthusiasm which fcemed to grow was seized upon and to the tune of "John Brown's Body," the verre was repeated several times. Vigorous handdnpplng greet ed the announcement of the position of the bishops on the subject of amuse ments. Following are some of the most Im portant declarations of the address: "The consecutive polygamy permit ted by the divorce laws of some of our states Is a disgrace to our country. It continues to und Tinlne family life and to break up Into helpless and warring fractions that which God means uluill be a unit. "We greatly rej dec that the consci ence of the nation Is helng quickened on this subject, and that the demand for uniform divorce laws Increases. "We are moved by profound convic tion of duty In again calling your at tention to the subject of popular amusements In relation to the spirit and conduct of pplrltwil life. We regret that the general prevalence of harm ful amusements does not diminish. We still firmly hold that they are 'antagon istic to vital piety, promotive of world llness, and especially pernicious to youth.1 "We recommend, not that paragraph 24S be stricken nut, but that It be amended by striking out the confessed ly partial list of worldly amusements found therein, beginning with the last, word In the elghMi line, and ending with the word 'other' In the eleventh Hue, which were Inserted In 1S72, leav ing as the ground for church trial, In case such trial becomes necessary, that portion of the paragraph reading: " 'Taking such amusements as are obvious of misleading or questionable moral tendency, or disobedience to tho order, and discipline of the church,' and especially our original rule, 'to taking such diversions as cannot be used In the name of the Lord Jesun.' "Grave Injustice will be done If this recommendation Is Interpreted as ail abandonment of our enrly opposition to worldly amusements. Indeed, It, Is a re turn to the principles and to the exact words furnished bv John Wesley," YALE MENJN JAIL Prof. Bailey's Wisdom Seekers Dive Deep Into Things Sociological. New York, May " One hundred Ynle students, whose object i:i to study idolngy at first hand, began a, tour of New ork today in charge of i'ror. William Ilulley, who occupies the chair of sociology at the university, It was the annual trip In connection with th'J course known as "American Hoclul Conditions." The professor, however, fought shy of the Bowery and Its al lurements; other Yale classes have traveled that route and It had been do clded to cut that out of the curriculum, The first study of the students was really In anatomy, not sociology, for they were taken over to tho morgue at Bellrvim. Dr. Timothy 1), Iliano was performing autopsies, Hitd the students got permission to watch him, As inuny as possible crowded Into tho little room where he was at work. ' Prof, rtallcy, however, would not let them remain there long, for he con sidered that more about sociology could bo learned at Dlackwell's Island, so his one hundred young men went over there, Tho prison was thrown open to them, for the young men were all so eager lo learn what Jails looked like from the Inside that the officials were charmed with their desire to learn. They were shown all through tho In stitution front tho kitchen to tho of fices, Then they took a trip through the hospital. After their lunch they prepared for a visit to the Manhattan State Hospi tal for the Insane, on Ward's Island, where they proposed to look at patients afflicted with various types of me.ntul disorder. The young men are to dive deep Into soc iology this evening, for on their return from the state asylum they will dine at the Mills Hotel No. 3, which Is at Thirty-sixth street and Peventh avenue. Karly tomorrow, the M'cond day of the pursuit of knowledge, will begin with visits to the Educa tional Alliance on the east side, (be 1'nlversity Settlement on Kldiidge street, and Ellis Island. That will be about all for Prof. Bailey's class, and they w ill go home In (he evening to di gest the facts they will have found In New York. rixjioT norsr, m uNr.n. Famous Old Hotel on Tbniucs Shore F.ntlrcly Destroyed. New London, May 7. The famous Pequot house, which crowned the headland at the western entrance to New London harbor, was burned dow n early this morning, and the con flagration lasted for several hours, threatening the entire Pequot settle ment of cottages and many splendid summer homes on Pequot avenue. The cause of the tire Is not known. The danger front the flames was over about 9 o'clock, when the last chimney of the Casino fell, carrying to the ground the blazing wreck of the building. Two of the Pequot cottages near by were entirely destroyed, and one other, belonging to Mrs. Andrews, of New York, was wrecked. The bulk of the fire department Is located about two and a half miles from the hotel, the Pequot Independ ent Hose only being close nt hand. Before the apparatus could get to the scene the hotel was a mas of flame, lighting up the country for miles around' Huge pieces of burning wood were blown all over the neighborhood, and some of the sparks landed nt Pepper-Box Hill, three miles away. As different buildings took tire details of firemen hail to be taken from the main blaze to save the property. The hotel was erected In 1R50.
