TRAIN WRECKS KILL FORTY-ONE. . Six Lives Lost at Depere.Wis. While Thirty-five Perish in Georgia. VICTIMS BURN TO DEATH. Southern Train Takes Fire and 'Many of the Injured Are Cremated. WASHOUT AND A COLLISION. (Continued from first page.) of the first to get out. at once started for the nearest telegraph station, which was McDonough, and after telling the night operator of the wreck, fell fainting to the floor. 'Word was quickly sent to Atlanta and ilacon, but no assistance was to be had except in the latter city, as the interrupted track prevented the arrival of any train from Macon. Nearly the entire population of McDonough went to the scene to render assistance, but little could be done - by the rescuers, as the fire kept them at a - distance. At daylight the bodies that had floated from the wreck were gathered up. One body was. found a mile from the wreck, and many were -seen along the banks of the stream. Victims Identified by Letters. A wreck train was started out from At- lanta at' midnight, but owing to the burning wreckage nothing could be done until morning.- A special train at 6 o'clock this morning- took doctors. ministers. railroad officials. and helpers to the scene. but nothing could be done save to gather up the bodies and take them to McDonough. Some of the bodies were terribly burned. while others were crushed beyond recognition. The only means of identification in the majority of the cases were letters and papers In the pockets of the victims. Only three women were on the train. Two escaped. It is presumed the other perished. but the body has not been found. Besides the regular crew of the train, several conductors and other employs were on their way to Atlanta to spend Sunday. All were killed. Conductor W. A. Barclay was in charge of the train- - Tells Story of the Horror. Jesse L. Rohr, a traveling salesman of Baltimore, one of the survivors, said tonight of his experience:- " I was in the Pullman with the others : who escaped with their lives when the wreck , occurred. There was not an instant's warn', logo We heard suddenly an indistinct crash and the next instant felt our car pitch forward and drop. The forward end of the car filled with water at once and the lights went 'out. , "'We heard the roar of rushing waters oan4 knew we were in a stream of some kind. - We got down on all fours and felt our way , and crawled to the top of the car and then out. The car was hanging by its rear trucks to the stone abutment of the culvert,' and swayed by the motion of the water swung to and fro like a great pendulum. ". It' was pitch dark and the rain was com, ing down in torrents. Peering into the breach in the track we could see a confused mass of broken cars already beginning to burn. 1 What impressed me was the fact that not a single call for help was heard. Those in the forward coaches must have met death Instantly. The wreckage was on fire when we reached the top of our car and lit up the scene brightly. Woman Begs for Help. - "'Looking down toward the middle of our I saw the head and shoulders of a. - woman, and soon heard her cry: " 1 Save us; we are alive!' , " We could do nothing for her, as there was 'i- no rope to be had, and we were afraid the car would swing from its position. 11 Then came the struggle to get to the track above. We were many feet from the level of the roadbed. Great chunks of earth, t loosened by the train, came falling down on us, and we ,were nearly buried two or three times. We took hold of the roots, and sev:' eral times as we neared the top of the bank they pulled out and sent us tumbling back on the car. ' Flagman Quinlan worked like a hero, -; and finally ' got to the lop, running to a farmtiouse near by and coming with a rope: It was too shore, however, and he had to make the- trip again to 4 another house. Finally we got -plenty of rope, and then we pulled the two 'women out of the for-srLid end of the coach, and allwere Soon on top of ; the ground." ' ' . . . As Railroad Views It. Superintendent A. Gordon Jones of the Southern rallwa3r said of the wreck: " It can only be explained as one of the Inevitable acts of God. It seems that It was the resült of a terrific rain-storm or cloudburst. something similar to that .which caused the Johnstown flood. " The accident occurred at ,a deep, narrow creek which had become so suddenly and so completely filled that the volume of water carried such weight as to wash out the masonry of stone and brick from under the trestle which spanned the stream. Mr. Grglffith, superintendent of tracks, was on the engine of the wrecked train, and if there had been a break in the track he or the engineer or fireman would have seen it. " The masonry supporting the track must Ave been -washed out, leaving the track It-elf intact; so that ,the men, being unconECIOUS of anything amiss, allowed the train to rush in on the unsupported track, which csulted la the fatal crash." Woman's Story of the Wreck. Mien Mamie Merritt, a teacher in the Emerson School of Oratory of Boston, who was In the wreck, eald: " It began to rain about the' time we left Macon, and rained incessantly all the way up to McDonough. The conductor came through where we were sitting in the rear of the sleeper to itt down a window, as the rain had begun to come in. As he put it down I reached -over to gather up my mackintosh, which I had spread across my, lap, and while I was bending forward the crash came. " Quickly looking up. I saw the conductor being thrown toward the front of the car. 1 wds on the 'eft of the car, my friend was on the opposite side, ' and the conductor was falling headlong over the seats on the right- That was the last 1 saw., Then I remembered the car plunging downward into the water. The car turned over on the side en which I was sitting, and the next I knew lies Alden was lying across lone. The water had risen up to our waists, nnd I noticed that Mies Alden's head was lower than mine, and, fearing the water would cover her, I took her in my arms and 1.fted her up. We both were wtdged in, and could not move our bodies below our waists. - For some time we lay helpless and called for help, but hone came. - - , - " cguA4 .1sta thq g41-40janqat, anttlt 1:4,114 A and the men who had gotten out of the smoking compartment standing and walking about up the embankment. I called to them, but they paid no attention, but a negro porter heard me and came to our assistance. " By his aid I managed to pull myself out on top of the sleeper and crawl to the end next to the embankment I then called again and again to the men to help us up, but they only cried back to us. All right? " In the meantime Miss Alden had got on the roof of the car, and after she had fainted and a long wait a man from Atlanta came down the embankment and tied a rope about my waist and I was drawn up the steep embankment.

Visaster Overtakes an Excursion Bound for the German Sangerfest at Green Bay, Wis. - Green Bay, Wis., June 24.--(Special.--S1x persons dead, one -missing, and fifty-three injured is the cost of a collision on the Chicago and Northwestern railroad at Depere, five miles south of here, at 10 o'clock this morning. The train on which the lives were lost was an excursion, bound for this city, from Fond du Lac and intermediate points, with delegates and visitors to the German Sängerfest There were over 500 persona on the train, and that the loss of life is not greater Is due to the fact that the baggage car and the smoker following it were the only cars of the eight which were damaged to any great extent. The High School Building in Depere was hastily converted into a hospital, and the dead and injured were taken there, physicians being rushed to the scene by special train from Green Bay and Appleton. of the injured a score or more are in a serious condition and several may not recover.

The smoking car was telescoped by the combination baggage and the passenger car nearest to the engine. The freight train, which was a heavy one with two engines, had pulled out on the main track to switch a part of the train on another sidetrack, when the excursion train appeared and crashed Into the freight A flagman had been sent out ahead, but either the engineer did not see him or was unable to use his brakes. Although the work of rescue was begun at once it was nearly an hour before all were taken out of the wrecked coaches. High School a Hospital. The high school was soon converted into a hospital, where the injured were carried. Later some were taken back to their homes at Oshkosh and Fond du Lac, while others were taken to hospitals at Green Bay. Those injured were nearly all in the second coach. When the two trains came together the first car, which was a combination smoker and baggage, was driven through the second coach, where the loss of life occurred. None of thc,---trainmen was injured, the engine crews Jlrrnping in time to save themselves. The freight train of fifty-three cars was in charge of Conductor Cottrell. The freight special and the excursion train had orders to meet at Depere. The special freight train went in on 'the siding at the north switch at Depere and pulled down the sidetrack, but on account of the length- of the train the crew found when they reached the south switch that the rear end was not into the clear. The train was then pulled out over the south switch. At that moment the passenger train appeared, expecting to stop to meet the freight. and collided with the engine of the freight train which was on the main line at the south switch. The excursion train carried passengers from Fond du Lac, Van Dyne, Oshkosh, and Neenah, and had 580 people in the eight coaches. Both trains were running at a slow rate it the time of the collision. The baggage car In front telescoped the car behind it, these being the only cars damaged to any extent A special train carrying surgeons from Green Bay and Appleton was dispatched immediately to the scene of the wreck, and the injured were removed to the high school, hotels, and private residences at Depere. , A special train carrying the relatives and friends of the dead and injured left Fond du Lac soon after the news of the wreck had been received. Assistant Superintendent F. R. Moulton of the Northwestern accompanied the relief train from Green Bay and took charge of the work of attending to the injure6, nd clearing away the wreck. Superintendent T. A. Lawson left Chicago at, 1 o'clock on a special train to conduct an investigation into the responsibility for the accident As yet no blame has been attached to either of the train crews by the Officials of the road. The passenger train was moving at the rate of twelve or fifteen miles an hour. while the freight was not under much headway. The collision telescoped the empty baggage ear, forcing the upper work backward into the first passenger coach, in which all of the kilIed and most of the injured were riding. ILLINOIS CENTRAL TO ST.

Altgeld May Lead the Opposi tion to the Cook Machine Candidate. no NOT WANT A BREWER. Aspirants for Other Offices Say Congressional Tickets May Lose. HARRISON FACES A TANGLE. (Continued from first page.) do less, however, would be party stultification and my mission here is to see that the great Democratic party of Illinois takes no backward step." " Have you any preferences among the various candidates for Governor?" was asked. " If I had I -would not spoil his -chances by declaring in his favor," responded Altgeld,, - laughing. Then the ex-Governor began asking quea tions of some of his visitors as to the situation regarding nominatio'ns, and one of them replied that, among other objectors to the nomination of Ortseifen were the brewers of the State. of whom Ortselfen is one. Brewers Object to Ortseifen. The reason foe their objection is that it would make their business an issue in the campEdgn were a brewer to run for the Governorship, and that business would probably suffer in consequence. If not by adverse legislation, at least by the failure to secure such legislation as the brewery interests might be looking for. " There is a great deal of truth in that fear," said Angel& Then he asked: "Are Mr. Ortseiten and his friends here?" He was told that Ortseiten was expected tomorrow, although the original plan was for him to come today, while Mayor Harr-son. Robert Burke, Thomas Gahan, and, other of the Ortselfen supporters would not get here before Tuesday morning. too late to make any effective fight in the convention. " I'm afraid they have not got Ortselfen's Interests greatly at heart," remarked Gov-- ernor Altgeld. , - Altgeld to Lead Opposition. It Is understood here tonight that Altgeld will take the leadership of the fight which Is to be made to prevent the nomination of Ortsellert. It is already demonstrated that If Ortseiters has any organized opposition he cannot be nominated. and the friends of the other candidates are already combining to kill him off much as Hanecy was defeated at Peoria. With John P. Altgeld in command of this movement it would, the wise ones say, prove successful, and the position of delegates-atlarge would naturally fall to Altgeld as the reNard of his efforts. As Mayor Harrison also expects to be a delegate-at-large the Mayor would fird him-,self in strange company. All Hostile to Ortseifen. The hostility to the Ortseifen boom showed by the delegates and managers now on the ground is something remarkable. The fact that there is nobody here from Chicago to speak a good word for him accentuates the situation, and unless some of his friends get here quickly the boom will be dead before the christening. Up to date not a man has been found who Is In favor of the nomination of the Chicago brewer, and every other man has a new reason against it. None of them reflect on Mr. Ortseiten. personally and every one unites En praising his character and, many good qualities, but all Democrats from outside of Chicago declare his nomination would be political suicide for the party and he would lose votes in every section of the State. Congressman Caldwell of this, the Seventeenth, district declared today if Ortselfen were nominated for Governor it would cost hin-s.2,500 votes and result in the election of a Republican Congressman in the district. Congressional Nominee Whitney, in the Twenty-second District, said Ortselfen's nomination would cost the Democrats 1,000 votes in his district. Both declared they did not care to run, for Congress were Ortseiten nominated. and George P. Parsons of Gallatin County, who is the only candidate for a minor office now here, said he would abandon his aspirations to be named for Auditor were the choice of the Chicago machine to be selected. The objections raised to the nomination of Ortseifen are many, but the one most insisted on is thisthat he is a brewer and the secretary of the brewery trust in Chicago. It is also stated that he is a gold Democrat, but not much stress is laid on that. The sentiment of even the most rabid free silver men is to forget and forgive the differences of 1896. Ordinarily a candidate who comes to a convention with the solid delegation from John G. Woolley was born in Collinsville, near Cincinnati, O., on Feb. 15, 185o. He was admitted to the bar in the Supreme Court of Illinois in 1873, in the Supreme Court of Minnesota in 1878. and in the Supreme Court of the United States in 1886. He held the office of City Attorney at Paris. III., in 1876-'77, and State's Attorney in Minneapolis in 1884-86. He joined the Church of the Strangers on Jan. 31, 1888, in New York, und since then has been active in prohibition and temperance work. Since 1888 he has made on an average one speech a day. In 1892 he was the guest of Lady Henry Somerset in England for a Period of seven months speaking nearly every day. As an orator Mr. Woolley enjoys an enviable reputation, it having been said of him in comparison with Bourke Cock-ran of New York " That while Cockran is an orator he never spun the sunshine into golt.len strça,40 of fir; like Vel9o11;,y," TRIBUNE : - 310NDAY, J.-LI-NM 25, I 900. Cook County back of him. as will Mr. Ortseifen, is practically sure of a nomination. In this case he only needs a little over 200 votes to add to the 398 from Cook, the total number of delegates to the convention being but 1,204. The law of political gravitation would usually detract the necessary number of votes to the larger body, and the matter could be made certain by trading with candidates for other places on the ticket who had votes to deliver on a trade. The trouble with the latter expedient in the Ortsellen case, however. is that candidates for other places on the ticket all say they do not want the nomination if Ortseif en is to be the candidate. The Germans from the State outside of Chicago are also opposing Ortselfen. St. Clair was counted for him by the Chicago machine because it is largely a German community. It is announced here today that of the twenty-one votes from St. Clair Ortsellen will only get three. The delegation from Adams County is largely composed of Germans, and will have a brewer at its head. Word has been sent here all of its twenty delegates will be opposed to and most of them for Altogether it looks as if the Democratic machine of Cook County was going to have at Springfield a good deal of the same kind of experience which the Republican machine of the same county suffered at PecVa. As to Other Candidates. So far as the other candidates go. Orendorff seems to lead in the number of delegates favorable to him, although he is. undoubtedly counting on some votes from Egypt which will probably go to Alschuler. Alschuler has the advantage of having practically the unanimous support of his Democratic colleagues in the Legislature, and not only are most of them delegates-to the convention,- but many have a friend or so with them who will vote as they may desire. Buck " Illnrichsen started the cry for Carter ir. Harrison of Chicago for the Gubernatorial nomination the moment he arrived in Springfield. and he and M. F. Dunlap. Jarksonville. united in the statement that the Morgan County delegates would follow their instructions and vote for the Mayor of Chicago in spite of his statement he did not want the nomination. They both asserted that in spite of the position he had taken in thematter, Mayor Harrison could not decline the nomination if it were made, especially if the movement in his favor started from outside of CMcago. and they claimed the delegates from Greene, Ogle, Wabash. Jefferson, and Champaign Counties would follow the lead of Morgan. This would make fifty-two delegates in all. and Mr. Dunlap asserted this evening that on the second ballot Mayor Harrison would be found to have more votes than any one. This statement was. however, challenged by the adherents of Alschuler and Orendortf, who declared the recent actions of Mayor Harrison in pitying fast and loose with the nomination had greatly decreased his popularity, and while a year ago he could have had the nomination by acclamation for the asking. now, it might happen he would be beaten were he an avowed candidate for the nomination. Nay Stampede to Harrison. Still it is in the air there will be an attempt made to stampede the convention for Harrison, and it Is possible it may be successful. It is not certain it will not happen in a conxention in which up to date everything is uncertain. ror the Ittinor Places. About the minor places on the ticket little has been beard. The names of Elmer Hurst of Rock Island, Francis Hoffmdn Jr. of CM-ago. Elmer Perry of Mount Sterling, and Nic Perrin of Belleville are being discussed for the Lieutenant Governorship nomination. For Attorney General W. H. Crowe of Pittsfield, Hardin W. Masters of Lewistown, and Rufus N. Potts of Taylorville are being talked of. It is generally taken for granted that unless geographical reasons prevent Millard F. Dunlap of Jacksonville will be named for the Treasurership. George B. Parsons of Sh'awneetown is a candidate for Auditor. e convention has not got far enough alon however, to discus s these matters. Contests to Settle. ' The State Central committee meets tomorrow at noon to arrange for the gathering, and among other things it will have to do will be to make up the temporary roll of the convention. Only two notices of contest have been filed with Secretary Eldred, those of Lee and McDonough Counties. but It was announced tonight that Judge Hope of Madison County would appear before the committee with a. contest from that county. It is known that the contesting delegates on the Hope ticket are pledged to vote for Ortselfen and it is said. although with bow much truth cannot now be ascertained, that Judge Hope was encouraged to make the contest on the promise of material aid front the members of the committee from Cook County and such of their colleagues from the country districts as they could influence. The decision of the committee on the Madison County matter will therefore be of interest as showing whether the Ortselfen or anti-Ortseiten forces control the committee. It has also been arranged that the row in the Nineteenth Congressional District be submitted to the committee for arbitration-In this district both Congressman Crowley and ex-Congressanan A. J. Hunter claim to pe the nominees for Congress, and the dispute promises to result in the election of a 4Repubilean Congressman unless it can be settled. Some Uncertain Ones. As has been stated, Charles K. Ladd of Kewanee seems to have dropped out of the running for the Gubernatorial nomination. He was the first in the field. and it is perhaps as well he should be the first one out of it. It has not been determined yet whether Worthington of Peoria will allow his name to go before the convention as a candidate for the nomination. A train load of his friends from the distillery city will be here to shout for him, and it is extremely likely his name will get before the convention. If it does it is by no means unlikely he will be , k 41M1 Mr. Hale Johnson has been honored with the nomination to high offices by. the Prohibitionists several times. Ile joule& the party in 1882 and was chairman of the State convention of Illinois of that year. He has been a Prohibition candidate for Congress, for Attorney General, and fur Governor of Illinois. He was on the national ticket for Vice President in 1896, and made a canvass in twenty States. NIT.: Johnson was born on Aug. 21, 1847, in Montgomery County. hid., and comes of a family that has had four generations represented in the wars of his country. His grandfather served in the war of 1812, his father was surgeon of the Seventy-second Indiana Volunteers during the civil war. he himself enlisted in Company D, One Hundred and Thirty-fifth Indiana Volunteers and his son served recently in the war in Cuba.. ; Mr. Johnson was admitted to the bar in 1a71. lie lives in Newton.I46Der Co.. the nominee. as with Ortseifen beaten he is the most likely candidate for the votes from Chicago to go to, especially if it appears at any time it is necessary to nominate somebody in a hurry in order to stop a stampede to Mayor Harrison. After Judge Tuley declined to become a candidate all the Chicago managers except Burke declared for Worthington. and he would have been the choice of Cook Conty bad not Burke dug up Ortsellen and used him as his candidate. Stevenson Would Accept. Ex-Vice President Stevenson. it is given out, will not be an open candidate for the place. He would, however. accept if the nomination were given him without any effort On his part. Although John P. Altgeld says he comes here in order to protect the platform from the clutches of the gold Democrats who Is ill be at the convention in considerable force, there is nothing up to now which would indicate theret is any danger of a refusal on. the part of the convention to reaffirm the platform of 1896, the thing in which the ex-Governor says be is most Interested. As for the instructions for Bryan. they will come as a matter of course. Bryan already has enough instructed votes to nominate him. and Illinois Democrats never yet failed to recognize a band wagon when it was going directly past their doors. Such gold Democrats as John P. Hopkins and Roger Sullivan of Chicago. Ben T. Cable and ex-Marshal Brinton of La Salle will be here, but they are not expected to nrddle with the platform. MAY SPLIT OVER ORTSEIFEN. Cook County Delegation Drops Motion to Indorse Him Because Country Members Oppose It. 'Mere may be surprising developments at the Democratic State convention tomorrow. It is not certain that Adam Ortseifen will have the votes of a solid Cook County delegation. At a meeting of the delegates yesterday several protests were made against him. Some of the country town men proclaimed that he was not their choice. The leaders, however, took no notice of them. and Frank Wenter, irpeaking as manager of Mr. Ortseifen's candidacy. said he thought the Insurgents would all be in line by the time they reach Springfield. It was E. McKinney of Chicago Heights, a delegate from Bloom Township. who tried to upset the machine's plan and show that It will not control the entire delegation. Martin M. Gridley, nominee for Probate Judge, put in, a motion that Mr. Ortselfen's candidacy be formally indorsed,when McKinney loudly protested, saying he did so in behalf of himself and other country delegates. His protest, he said, was based on the ground that Ortseifen could be regarded only as the machine's candidate, and not the choice of the people. He stated that those who opposed Mr. Ortsetten would gladly vote for Mayor Harrison. Illocks Motion to Indorse. This unexpected outbreak stopped the indorsement motion. It was not put to a vote. Otherwise nothing 'could have prevented a showing that neither the leaders nor Mr. Ortsellenls friends wanted. They have repeatedly assured everybody that he would go to the convention with a solid delegation behind him. The talk plainly indicated that had the delegates been given an opportunity to express their sentiments the vote would have shown a split. The delegates met at 2 o'clock and arranged to go in a body to Springfield. Thomas Gahas, chairman of the County Central committee, presided. Mayor Harrison, though not present. was unanimously elected chairman of the delegation and Robert E. Burke secretary. Leave for Springfield Today. ' The latter announced that a special train had been engaged on the Alton road to leave Chicago at 2 p. in. today and arrive in Springfield at 6:30. It is the hope of the leaders and Mr. Ortseifen's manager that they will be able to convert the protesting delegates before reaching the capital. Mayor Harrisfon's repeated declaration that the nomination cannot be forced upon him. they think. will bring every one into line for Ortseiten. Mayor Harrison and the Aldermen who are going have reserved berths on the 11:30 p. in. Alton train. Adam Ortseifen, Frank Wen-ter, and Robert E. Burke left at 11:30 last night, and will open Ortseifen's headquarters at the SL Nicholas Hotel this morning. PLANS FOR KANSAS CITY TRIP. County Democracy Members to Leave by Special Train a Week from Today Indorse Local Ticket. At Its meeting yesterday afternoon the County Democracy adopted a resolution Indorsing the county ticket nominated at North Side Turner Hall on Saturday. The roster for the Kansas City trip was closed and those who have signed were notified to send in the money for their tickets this week. Secretary Burke said the list contained nearly 300 names. The club will leave Chicago In a special train on the Burlington road one week from today. CHICAGO MAN IS DROWNED. Robert :ones Perishes While Swim' ming in the Surf at Atlantic. City, N. J.

Fight for Presidential Nominee. The struggle for the Presidential nomination is becoming intense. The friends of John G. Woolley are giving out hundreds of large campaign buttons, having on them the picture of their favorite. As Hale Johnson is also from Illinois, in the early balloting for nominations the vote of Illinois will be divided probably equally between Woolley and Johnson, with the understanding that whoever develops the most strength outside of Illinois will get the entire vote. Mr. Woolley seems to have the support of Ohio. Michigan. Wisconsin, Kansas, Tennessee, and the New England States. Hale Johnson's strength is likely to come from Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Montana. Arkansas, North Carolina, and Virginia- The Rev. Dr. S. C. Swallow of Harrisburg. Pa. will be supported by the delegations from Pennsylvania, Now Jersey, Maryland, Kentucky. Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, and Nebraska. It is expected Dr. Swallow will lead on the first ballot , The Vice Presidential situation is much mixed and will be determined by the location of the candidate for President , Number of Delegates.- , The number of delegates to which the several States and Territories are entitled under the call of the National committee is as follows: , State. , Total .

Ex-Mayor, Sound Money Democrat in 1898, Now a State Convention Dee! gate and Slated to Lead Machine, Four years ago ex-Mayor John P. Hopkins led the Illinois contingent of sound Inoney Democrats that left the old and formed a new Democratic party. Months prior to that time he. with Roger C. Sullivan. Steve " Griffin, and others, had been defeated and driven out of the Cook County organization. But Mr. Hopkins Is now back In the fold. He got back last Friday. when Democrats of the Thirty-fourth Ward elected him a delegate to the State convention. For the first tIme in more than four and a half years Mr. Hopkins made his appearance as a member of the machine yesterday at the roundup of the Cook County delegates to the State convention. Mr. Hopkins will also be a delegate to the national convention. The State delegates from the First Congressional District will meet after they arrive at Springfield and ratify an agreement already made to send him and Thomas Gahan to the Kansas City gathering.- It is understood that he has given a pledge to vote for the nomination of William J. Bryan for President. to stand by the platform, and to support the ticket. Once John P. Hopkins completely dominated and ruled the Cook County machine. It is predicted by his friends that he will again be put in control. There is said to be a demand for his services on the part of politicians. who say the organization wail In a more flourishing condition when under his leadership than at any other time.
