BISHOP 1CEANE IS OUT.
Retired as Her.rt of the Catholic Univer
sity of America.
Washisoton, Oct. 0. -Bishop Kcanc,
rector of tho Catholic university of
America, makes the following state
ment concerning hit withdrawal from
tho head of that institution: Since
my withdrawal from tho rectorship of
tho Catholic University of America
will probably bo regarded by a consid
erable portion of the American public
as a matter of sorao Interest to them,
nnd since unauthorised statements are
a,pt to bo misleading, I deem it my
duty to stato brifly and clearly the
facts of tho case.
On September 28 I :ecoived through
his eminence, Cardinal Gibbons, a let
ter from our holy father, Leo XIII, of
which tho following is a translation;
"It is customary that those who are
appointed to preside over Catholic
universities should not hold the office
in perpetuity. This custom has grown
up through wise reasons, and the Ro
man pontiffs have over been careful
that it should be adhered to. Since,
therefore, vencrablo brother, you
have now presided for several years
over tho university at Washington, la
tho first establishment and subse
quent development of which you havo
shown laudable zeal and diligence, it
has seemed best that tho ubovo men
tioned custom should not be departed
from, and that another, whose name
is to be proposed to us by the bishops,
should be nppolutcd to succeed you in
this honorable position.

It, to come to Rome. If you chooso

is a translation:

SECRET FUSION IN TEXAS
Republicans Gold Democrat and Iopu-
lists Reach a I'rlTato Agreement.
Dallas, Tex., Oct 0. Fusion be
tween the Republicans, Populists und
gold standard Democrats of Texas has
at length been definitely accom
plished. N. W. Cunoy, tho colored leader,
who was formerly tho national com
mitteeman, said to-day: "It is a fact
that fusion has for moro than two
weeks existed between the Repub
licans and Populists of Texas. The
agreements thus fur arrived at are
kept from the public for reasons con
sidered judicious by the leaders. The
Republicans aro openly supporting the
Populist stato ticket, and most of the
county tickets, and what wo are to
gat in return is, of course, anti-Bryan
electors. How we aro to get these is,
for the present, a part of the socret of
tho campaign. We expect to do such
effective work that at least a part, if
not all of the electors from Texas
will be anti-Bryan."
General Huston, one of the Repub
lican leaders, said: "It may bo ac
cepted that very few Republican votes
will be cast in Texas for the McKinley
electors. The most of them will be
cast for the Populist electors, with
the pledcre to vato against Bryan in
the electoral college. It is moro than
probnblo that public announcement to
this effect will be made within the
next three to five days and the Repub
lican electoral ticket pulled down."

General Stewart denied it The crowd
hissed and cheered alternately until
the speaking ended.
The generals next spoke to two big
crowds up town. Their speeches were

New YonK, Oct. 4. It. G. Hun
Co.'s Weekly Rovlow of trade says:
Tho complete roport of failures for
the quarter which ended with Wed
nesday shows an Increase which
would be surprising If tho political
causes wero not obvious. In number,
Ojtf per cent less than in tho panto
quttrtcr of ie93, failures for the quar
ter show liabilities II. 1 per cant less,
nmounting to 873,285,349, against $97,
o09,o82 in the previous half year.
Manufacturing liabilities were $32,
479,190, or 37 per cent greater than in
tho same quarter of 1893, whllo trad
ing wero 8:28,73$, 217 and ''other com
mercial" wero 812,007,230. To this
must be added 811,812,900 liabilities In
fifty bank failures, making exclusive
of railways nearly 885,000,000
In " a single quarter. Com
parisons arc given showing that
In only six quarters in twenty-two
years have defaulted liabilities been
as large; that the ratio to solvent bus
iness has been SO. 06 per 81,000, against
8'i.14 for tho same quarter last year;
that the average per firm in business
has been 803. 07, against 830.92 last
year; that the proportion of iucrcaso
has been irreatei- in tho Western
fIl"i"8ll1both iVl"ount and in av,era,:e
liabilities per failure, and much larger
in manufacturing than in trading.
Part, but clearly not all of the causes,
has been removed by tho Influx of
gold, and depression is still shoAvn by
clearing houso percentages, 22. 1 per
cent loss than last year for tlio weclc
and 31.2 per cent less than in 1892,
when another presidential election
Mcrshunts nnd manufacturers uro
waiting, but thero are not wanting
signs that many have tho confidence
to invest and push forward as though
tho dawn of prosperity werd1 'close at
hand. The quarter that" bus pussed
has been most trying, but things
would be worso than they are but for
the goncral belief that better time;
