Former Treasurer of Kansas Refund3
Money Found Due State.
Topoka, Kan., Dec. 12. B. A.
Grimes, ex-sfato treasurer, voluntarily
paid to tho state of Kansas tho sum
of $9,381, for which amount an in
vestigating committee some timo ugo
hold ills administration responsible.
Tho alleged shortage was never coi
sldered in tho light of a defalcation
in any sense of tho word and resulted
from a practice that had been tho rule
In tho stato treasurer's olllco for many
years boforo and after Mr. Grimes
sumed tho office. Tho lnvestlg.
showed conclusively that Mr. Grimes
was not benefited in any way through
fills practice. Therefore in making a
payment to tho stato now of tho
amount involved he has assumed a re
sponsibility at a personal I033 to him
self. Mr. Grimes' notion, closes a caso
that had become famous.

RELIGIOUS CRISIS IN FRANCE
Pope Issues Orders to Clergy to Hold
Out Even Against Violence.
Paris, Dec. 10. Franco seems to
face an alarming religious crisis. Re
ports of tho popo's eleventh-hour re
jection of tho government's final prof
fer, under which Catholic worship
could bo continued under tho common
law, turns out to bo only too true, and
tho deadlock now is apparently com
plete. According to tne holy fathers
orders, declarations under tho law of
1881 aro prohibited, but tho parish
priests must remain in their churches
until driven out by violence.
Tho official confirmation of this
communication has created a, sensa
tion. Cardinal Lecot, archbishop of
Bordeaux; Archbishop Germain and
others who already had advised com
pliance with tho law, have hastily in
structed tho parish priests of their
dioceses that their former advice is
null and void, and in all tho churches
of Paris bishops and priests, after
mass, read the letter from Cardinal
Richard, archbishop of Paris, commu
nicating tho decision of tho holy see
to "continue services in the churches,
but abstain from any declaration," and
Cardinal Richard's own instructions,
in view of tho order Issued by the
prefect of the Seine, not to permit for
the present tho employment of cere
monial draperies at marriages or fu
nerals. Tho government regards the action
of the pontiff as little loss than a
summons of the French Catholics to
