which is by- no means shared by . the
a-ajority.of th sacred colle-re.
During' the reign of Pros DC the
eattse of Don C arios was favored at the'
Vatican, and Carlist committees were
ctaallr formed under the presidencv
of members of the pontifical entour
age, the idea being thax the cause of
the church would" be vastly strength
ened not only in Spain itself, but also
in Italy if Don Carlos were on the
But this policy has -been reversed by
Leo Xm, who has made himself the
champion of the present dynasty.
Don Carlos has repeatedly remon
strated with Leo TTTT en account of
this persistent opro ;ition to his cause.
But, as the pope always urged him to
give up his pretensions, friendly re
lations were broken off.
At the beginning of the recent war
. the Spanish government and the Vat
ican arranged to combat any Carlist
movement. The pope brought secret
influence to bear on the Spanish bish
ops, and to impress upon their flocks
the dangercus and disastrous conse
quences of civil war. Leo X7TT also
sent emissaries to Don Carlos, beg-ring
him not to provoke a revolt in Spain
during the war, to which the "pre
tender 'is understood to hare replied
that .he had no-need of Vatican advice.
Quite lately the pope, in response to
another appeal from the queen regent
of Spain, has again exhorted the Span
ish bishops not to- furnish help to the
Carlists. but to combat them as the
enemies of Spain, and the present en
cyclical' has the effect of. not only -confirming
these instructions, but like
wise of exposing the bishops and the
clergy to ecclesiastical penalties in the
event of their disobedience.
TO. MUSTER OUT THE CUBANS.
WAs-mr-rroar, Aug- W. As there is
no longer a Spanish army in the nsid
in Cuba there is no longer any reason
for the existence of the Cuban army,
aad it is therefore to be regularly
mustered out of service. The admin
istration has no idea, however, of
adopting the Quixotic idea of payin-r
the Cuban soldiers for their services
during the war or of as-mining the re
sponsibility for their payment.
The President has. hc-wexcr, a. plan
in. mind by which the insurgent army
can be disbanded without the neces
sity of turning the soldiers adrift
with no sort of recognition of .their
services. The plan ccnicmplates the
granting of an honorable discharge to
each soldier, accompanied by a cer
tificate of service and a promissory
obligation signed by the Luban gen
eral in command, to be made, good out
of the pab'ic r-3on-tri'i when, the
Cubans shall have established the
stable government which the- United
States has pledg itself to help bring
In addition to thus providing for the
soldiers of the Cuban army, the plan
under consideration by the President
contemplates the mustering into the
United States volunteer army of a
large number of Cuban soldiers who
are America-- citizens.

the senator said:

try to afford them protectioa from
foreign invasion- The -United States
could say to alloreiga nations. 'Keep

one another in the- civil war and
settled our own troubles without
any interference from foreign
nations, and- it made us a great
nation. So I am in favor of as

and while the people are fighting-there
the United States govern
ment can keep other nation from in

hav- to keep a few soldiers in the Phil

teach the natives the art of self gov
