ConiniiioncrftA Point of Law
That May Cause Chaos lu Political
Pittsburg. Oct. 11. E. J. Brennen, of
this city, forwarded a letter last night
to Chairman John M. Oarman, of the
Democratic state committee, in regard
to the construction of the act of June
111, ISM. relative to the filing of nomi
nation papers. Mr. Brennen contends
that the certificates of candidates for
the tate house of representatives
should be filed with the county commis
sioners instead of the secretary of the
commonwealth, the former provisions
of the act of ISM having been repealed
by the act of 189X If Mr. Hronnen Is
correct it is claimed every nomination
m&de for the legislature this year by
boih parties Is Invalid and as' it Is too
late to file certificates with the coun
ty commissioners, nomination papers
would have to be resorted to. A nice
point 01 taw is involved In the ques
tlon, and it Is stated that Mr. Brennen '
will tile a bill In court, which will neces
sitate a decision.
II is also stated that Mr. Brennen is
so sure of his premises that he has
caused nomination papers to be circu
lated In his own district and will on
or before Tuesday next present the
pa tiers to the county commissioners for
tiling and In case they refuse to do so,
will bring the matter before the courts
on u writ of mandamus.

that his son and other cadets on the
ship during the recent voyage were
given poor and insufficient food and did
not receive proper care or medical at
tendance. Mr. Clure testified to visiting his son
at the hospital after he had been re
moved from the ship. The boy, accord
ing to the father's testimony, said to
Mr. Clare:
"If I hail had half a show before I was
taken sick I would have been all right.
But I whs starved and neglected by the
ntlicers and doctor of the ship. Captain
Eaton treated me well. I have nothing
against liim, but some of his officers
were brutes. They made us work hard
all the time and kept us on poor food.
The doctor neglected me. He wns ln
toxlcnted about two-thirds of the time.
Mr. Nazavo abused me and the other
Cadets William R. Franklin, of Brain
tree;: Tinker, of Dorchester, and
Charles H. Clare told of poor food and

Father Ludcke Collected About One
Thousadd from Parochial' School
Children and Had a Bonfire.
New York, Oct. II. A lively crusade.
has been instituted by the Rev. Francis
Ludeke, assistant pastor of St. Vin
cent de Pnul's church, in North Sixth
street, Williamsburg, against the
wearing of motto buttons by the pu
pils of the parochial school attached
to that church. He began on Friday
morning by visiting the school, col
lecting anout
thousand buttons fruin
he scholars and then burning them In
a big bonfire which he lighted for the
purpose in the back yard of the school.
Father Ludeke has a reputation as
a fighter in the Eastern District, and
has carried several crusades to a suc
cessful end. The practice of the boys
and girls in his school of wearing from
one to ten buttons, with varying kinds
of inscriptions on them, was noticed
by him a few days ago during a visit
to the school. The motto "Lend Me
your Wife," which he found pinned to
the coat of a seven-vear-old '-hoc.
! brought matters to n crisis.
The priest went to the Academy
building on Friday morning and called
the teachers together. Then the chil
dren were assembled In the large class
room, made by opening some folding
doors. The teachers separated and took
up their stutions In various parts of the
room. After placing a large basket on
the platform he turned to the children
nnd said that all who wore motto but
tons on their persons must come for
ward and put them In the basket.
This announcement created a sensa
tion, and the eyes of the children tilled
vlth tears. Many of them began to
secrete their treasures, but seemed
moved by the appeal that the priest
made. He Is very popular with the chil
dren. When the buttons were all put
In the basket they numbered about one
thousand. Campaign buttons were re
turned to the owners. At the noon re
cess the children were all taken to the
back yard, where a big tire hud been
built, und they watched the destruction
that followed.
In speaking of the matter yesterday
Father Ludeke said: "These buttons
have played havoc among the children.
They neglected their lessons and some
seemed to have tline for nothing but a
comparison of their collections. The
principal objection, however, was on
account of the Immoral Inscriptions
that I saw upon some of them. The
nature of some of them was such thut
the law ought to be Invoked to stop
their manufacture. They are danger
ous to the children and could work the
greatest harm. I did not take all the
buttons, making the exception in cases
of campaign badges. To have taken
them would be to destroy their ideas of
patriotism. All these I returned to
them and these they will be permitted to

Constantinople. Oct. 11. Minister
Terrell denies that he has made any
request ot the Porte In behalf of his
Government for the admittance of the
Cnlted States gunboat Bancroft
through the Dardanelles, but he ex
presses holies that arrangements were
made for her admittance before the
Bancroft started from America for
Turkish waters.
Mr. Terrell Is the only diplomatist
who has left the protection of Thera
pia. He Is living in Pera, and the
American Legation is the only one that
is not guarded. Mr. Terrell has pointed
out the houses of Americans which re
quire special guards, but has declared
to the Turkish police that it is their
duty to guard the legation without a re
quest. The jails are so crcrtvded with Armen
ian prisoners that it seems impossible
for them to hold any more. The special
tribunal organlied for the purpose of
trying the Armenians Is wholly inade
quate to dispose of the cases, and a
second court will be organized to ex
pidite matters.
