Washington,1. July 30. Behind the
closed doors of the room in the Arlington

the Republican national committee held

Quay tendered his resignation as, a mem
ber and chairman of both the executive
committee and the national committee in
a note containing the information that he
had sent to the Pennsylvania state com

tional committee, also tendered his resig
nation of that office, and the executive
committee adopted eulogistic resolutions
setting forth the services of Senator Quay
and General Dudley and expsessing regret
at their action.
The Formal Reftlgnation of Quay.
The members of the executive commit
tee had been informed of Senator Quay's
resignation and there was no surprise
manifested when Secretary Fassett, soon
after the session opened, read the follow
ing communication, dated Washington,
July 29, and addressed to Hon. J. Sloat
Fassett, secretary of the natioual Repub
Dear Sir: This is to inform you that I
have to-dny forwarded to Hon. William

Yours truly, M. S. Quay.
Wrested Victory Out of Defeat.
aXhe committee then adopted the follow
ing resolution: "Resolved, That we accept
against onr own judgment and with much
doubt as to the wisdom and expediency of
it for the party's interest, i he action of
Senator. Quay iu his resignation as chair
man and member of the national commit
tee. In submitting to it with so much of
reluctance and regret we desire to express
from our own knowledge of the facts of
his pre-eminent service to the party, our
sense of the deep obligation umlfr which
he has placed the Republican party aid
cause of good government and patriotism
in the United States. He undertook the
leadership of a doubtful cause in a time
when the Republican party was disheart
ened and the Democratic party confident
in the power of supreme control in the
government, and the nation, and when the
odds of the contest were against our party,
and by his matchless power, hisuuequaled
skill in resources, his genius to command
victory, won for his party an unprece
dented victory in the face ot expected de
Won the Fight 1y Fair Methods.
"We know, as no one else can know.that
the contest which he waged was one of as
much honor and fair methods as it was
of invincible power and triumph, and that
it was won largely by the power of bis su
perior generalship and his unfailing
strength as a political leader. In the great
contest of 18S, in the months of severe
effort and in the years of those personal
associations with him we have learned to
know the nobility of the man, and we de
sire in this conspicuous manner to place
on record for the present and for the fu
ture, as an enduring answer to the parti
san assaults of a defeated enemy, our tes
timony in appreciation of his public serv
ices and his personal worth."
Colonel Dwlley Complimented.
Following this, by prearrangement,
came the report of the committee on audit
in the following terms: "Your committee
appointed to audit the accounts of W. W.
Dudley, treasurer of the national commit
tae, would report that on a thorough in
spection of the books and accounts we
are enabled to state that all monies re
ceived by the treasurer are actually and
fully accounted for and sustained in
every partienlor by vouchers and proper
receipts. We ure enabled from this ex
amination to approve of the treasurer's
accounts and to express to the committee
our sense of its great obligation to the
treasurer for his faithful and efficiett
service to it in this capacity." This is
signed by J. S. Clarksou, Garrett A. Ho
bart, Samuel Fessenden, committee.
DUDLEY'S LETTER OF RESIGNATION.
Clarkson F.M-cted to the Chair Full Com
mittee to Meet in Jiovember.
The chairman then read the following
letter, dated Washington, July s, 1801,
and addressed to the executive commhtee
of the Republican national committee:
"My Fkibnds and Associates: Inas
much as you are about to reorganize the
executivecommittee for immediate prepar
atory work, pending the approaching
presidential election of iSSB, and as my
business engagements will demand all
my time and atteution during the coming
year, I am compelled to sever the pleas
ant relations which have existed and still
exist between us. I therefore tender my
resignation of the office of treasurer of
yorrr committee and of the Republican
rational committee. Rwpectfully yours,
W. W. Dudley.
Clarkson Put in Quay's Plaoe.
A resolution Bimilar "in terms to that
adopted regarding Quay's services was
passed with reference to Dudley, and then
the resignations of Chairman Quay and
Treasurer Dudley were formally laid on
the table and accepted subject to the ap-
- proval of the full Republican national
committee at its next meeting Clarkson
was elected chairman of the executive
committee, and Hobart vice chairman in
the place of Mr. Clarkson, the chairman
being authorized to select a treasurer to
succeed Mr. Dudley. The committee then
adjourned. Clarkson will act as chair
man of the national committee uu.til a
meeting of that body can be held to elect
a successor to senator Quay.
The Afternoon Meeting.

sion at the lArlingtcnl house at 8 o'clock
yesterday afternoon, and the meeting con
tinued for more than three hours. Those

Waa1 agton to urge that his city lie se
lected as. the place for holding the next
national convention, appeared before the
committee and presented Omaha's claims,
and the committee referred the matter to
the general committee.
A Call for the Fall Committee.
The aiost important business of the aft
ernoon session was the action of the com
mittee in authorizing its chairman and
the secretary to call a meeting of the en
tire national committee at Buch place and
time in November as they may select, for
the ptrpose of deciding on the place
where the next national convention shall
be belc. Some attention was devoted to
communications from outside parties
giving advice as to proposed methods for
runnic g the coming campaign. A letter
containing statistics of the growth of the
farmers' Alliance and other independent
political parties was examined carefully
and dhcussed at some length. After W.
J. Can pbell had been elected a member of
the co nmittee from Illinois in place of
George B. Davis the committee took a re
cess for dinner. '
WHY EHRHARDT RESIGNED.
The New York Collector Wanted to Bun
His Office Himself.
New York, July 30. Speculation as to
Collect it Ehrhardt's reasons for his abrupt
resignation was set at rest last night by
Colone Ebrhardt himself, who made the
following statement: "I have resigned
because the collector has been reduced to
a position where he is no longer an inde
pendent officer with authority commensu
rate w th his responsibilities. I have
given I onus for ISOO.OOO. I have received
for the government during the twenty
months last past 3-22.6!tl,135.40, and I am
all the time personally responsible for
enormous values in money and iu mer-
cnanuite. Aiy duties are necessarily per
formed through about l,5u0 employes.
Oljeets to the Treasury Policy.
"I am not willing to continue to be re
sponsible for their conduct unless I have
proper authority over them. The recent
policy of the treasury department has
oeen to control the details of the customs
administration of the port of New York
from Washington at the dictation of a
private individual having no official re
sponsibility. The collector is practically
deprive I of power and control, while he is
left Mitject co all responsibility. The of
fice is no longer independent and I am.
Therefore we have separated."
T.o nig a Reduction in Force.
Ilr. ErharUt, it is said, told the presi
dent two months ago, when the investiga
tion wa-j contemplated, that he would re
sign if the policy then proposed was car
ried out. When Secretary Foster ap
pointed Messrs. Wilbur and Chance to
make an investigation, Mr. Erhardt was
further irritated. Theu they, after inves
tigating, suggested a reduction in the

The co lector said that one-fourth "that
amount was all that the duties of the de
partment would permit. As soon as he is
relieved from the collectorship Mr. Er
hardt will join his family in the New
Accepted with Greut Promptness.

Baltimore. July 30. The Democratic

cept in the case of Senator Palmer, of Illi

the fact of an effort having been made to

Londos, July 30. At the lord mayor's
banquet last night Lord Salisbury re
viewed the features of the present session
of parliament. , Obstruction; he said, had
almost disappeared. The government had,
he rejoiced to say, been able to frame an
education bill that would be of great
value m increasing the facilities for edu
cation. The government could look back
on its Irish policy with satisfaction. Chief
Secretary Balfour's success in Ireland was
largely due to the fact that those who as
sisted the government in carrying out its
policy of justice were assured that they
would be supported and not handed over
to the enemy. The land purchase act
would be found of great use ard value, as

tranquil. fcouth America alone was

patch says that the Grand Duke Alexis,
commander of the Russian navy, expressed
to Admiral Gervais his sincere admiration
of the appearance of loth the French war
vessels and crews, and added significantly
that he had no doubt of the result of any
naval struggle in which such a fleet might
engage. The grand duke has for a long
time been urging the reorganization of
the Russian navy on a basis similar to t-ie
I rench, ana is beneved now to have .ai

heretofore been unfavorable to any innovation.
Left It to Admiral Gervais.
The grand duke and the czar have also
differed as to the question of recruiting
nou-Russians for the navy, the czar be
lieving that Russians should be in the
large majority in the crews, while Alexis
regards his countrymen as poor sailors,
and wants the navy manned wholly with
tne r inns and Scandinavian subjects of
Russia. On all these points it is said that
the czar and the grand duke have taken
the advice of Admiral Gervais, wfth re
sults favorable to the changes advocated
