NEW YORK. Sept. (Special Tele
gram.) Holy rood Episcopal church Is
badly rent by the demand of the women of
the congregation for equal suffrage in the
parish, and by the refusal of the rector to
give them either votes or a voice In the
government of the church.
For months Mrs. E. Shepherd, a promi
nent member of the flock, has been argu
ing that since the women are really more
closely allied to the church work of th
parish than the men, they should be given
a vote, not only In the selection of pastors,
but in the expenditure of funds.
Rev. Stuart Crockett, the rector, differs
with Mrs. Shepherd, contending the church
should be run by men as It always has
been, and despite the efforts of the women
under Mrs. Shepherd, he has been a bin to
oust the old officers and place In office
wardens and vestrymen who are all antl
sut'fi agists and are expected to turn down
every proposition that even looks like
"votes for women." '
In consequence, It Is said, the trouble
has come to the unfortunate point where
many j arlshloners, once the best of friends,
are now very ceol when they pass each
other on the street.
Meanwhile Mrs. Shepherd has by no
means given up the fight. She claims a
majority of the wives and daughters of the
parish are behind her, and she Is so deter
mined to win "votes for women" at Holy
rood that even the peacemaker whom
Bishop Greer sent tip there In the person
of Archdeacon Nelson has been so far un
able to set the matter right.
Mrs. Shepherd says nothing will settle It
but a victory for her side.
Hector Crockett, content In his present
victory, has nothing to say at all.

Senator Nelson W. Aldrich talked freely
of the political situation In the United

"I am on my way to Alx Les Haines for

his opinion on the strength shown by the
Insurgents In the recent primaries.
"You are more of a business politician
than a practical politician," It was sug

"It Is strange, isn't It, that there is
only one popular conception of a patriot

doubtless due to the fact that everybody

The fire cost the life of F. W. Raney, a

F. W. Raney was working with others
long after the fire had been discovered
and was standing near the west wall of
the building when it fell at 7:30 p. m.
The clHirch building, with equipment in
cluding a $3,500 pipe organ, represented an
Investment of $49,000 and was Insured for
about $18,000. The flames were discovered
at S o'clock by Organist Reea while he was
rehearsing for the evening program. Smoke
was then coming from the basement. De
spite the best efforts of the firemen and
of many volunteers the fire spread rapidly,
and within an hour everything was burned

HERE WOMEN GET RIGHTS
Widows and Maiden, of Maine Town
Are tilnd to Bevel In Slnsrle
NORWAY. Me.. Sept. 25.-(Speclal Tele
gram.) In one place In the United States
at least widows and maiden women are in
favor. Nor is there talk of tax. on bache
lors. One hundred of the largest and most
tender herring Is the annuity offered to all
the widows residing within the confines of
the town of Pembrooke.
It Is a time-honored custom and its origin
Is beyond recall of the oldest inhabitant's
memory. But the custom is faithfully
obeyed and t the end of the year's run
about fifty women claim their share.
The weirs are town property and tho law
providing that 10.000 herring be taken from
each season's catch and returned to the
lake is rigidly observed. But whoever of
the I.sTiO residents of the two towns may
find himself deprived of his share, the
widows are certain of obtaining theirs.
John Le Farge is in charge of the fish
ing and he sees to it that every house
holder gets all the herring he Is entitled
to, always with an eye to It that no widow
Is overlooked on the extra hundred.
"It is pot charity." he tays. "The way
we look at it is that large, tender herring
Is about the best the town can offer w.tu
out chaise, and In the old days, it must
have been quite a help to a woman wliosa
husband died to have such a quantity of
eve:- ready food on hand. Tho custom it
honored and no one cares to break it."
