, t1 was suferlnr on Saturday , and today gave
: / audience to the deputation of the ngrlculur-
I late union , whose reception had been set
for Saturday last , but was deterred owing tc
the fact that the emperor remaIned In his
apartments that day.
The deputation presented an address to
his maje3ty on behalf or 200,000 tarmers , beg-
: ging him to direct his attention to'the ' condi-
ton ot hub3ndry.
After receng : the address 11e emperor
said that the tact that he had granted them
an audience showed hIs deep concern for the
welfare of the peasantry The agitation of
last year , exceeding as It did , what was le-
giti1nate , grieved his paternal heart , but the
act ot the AgrarIan league In sending a
deputation to lay theIr grlvancC before him
hall healed that wouud 'le trusted that
something benefIcial would accrue to hus-
banllry from the deliberations ot the councU
or state The emperor saId : " 1 beg you ,
gentlemen , to abstain front unconstitutional
agitation. Let lS pray to God to grant that
the efforts ot the counci ot state shall be attended -
tended by beneficial rsuIta. "
, After the deputation had called upon Em-

Agrarian league , which Is now sitting here.

S,1' PAUL , Feb 18-The recent encychlcai
letter ot the pope was read yesterday at the
morIng service at the catimedral. Else-
whcro I was read several weels ago , and
there was I great deal or discussion over the
provisions of the letter and their Interpreta-
lens by the clerIcs who communicated the
wIshes or the holy see to the laity. In this
diocese however , nothing was done er said
formally until yesterday , when Father Woods
read time letter. Roman Catholics who hl11
been loollng forward te I " , re agreeably
surprised , for the translation as read was
hot as drastic with relatIon to the atlude
ot the church toward secret societies as
many antcipated , This anticipation was
based upon the published reports or the letter
sent out from the east Time translation read
at the cathedral yesterday was very immild.
It merely advIsed the young men ot the
church to keep ont ot secret societies net
endorsed by the church , leaving It to their
own tlbscrotlon. There was nothing mandatory -
tory ; the tenor was simply advisory and the
hotter was read without a comment.
