LONDON, June 6. Prior to the second
reading Of the loan bill In the House of
Lords today Lord Goschen, liberal, and a
former chancellor of the exchequer, an
nounced that he desired to say a few word
on the financial position Of the country.
Consols, which were now paying only 2Vi
per cent, stood at 97. Before the conver
sion of 1883,. 3 per cent consols stood at
101. If they had been converted then, they
would have been worth only 82, so that now
the stock was really fifteen points higher.
After a costly war and the borrowing of
150,000,000, the counrty might well con
gratulate itself on a situation which showed
such economic statements.
The premier. Lord Salisbury, said such
words, coming from such a high authority,

WASHINGTON, Jun . Secretary Root

tbe senate and house the sctual copies of
the instructions given by hint to Governor
Taft (or his guidance In dealing with the
Vatican respecting the acquisition by tbs
United States of the friars' lands in th
Philippines, These instructions were ex
hibited yesterday by Governor Taft to the
Vatican officials and served the purpose of
Secretary Root lays down the following
propositions as. the basis of Governor
Taft s negotiations with the pope:
1. One of the controlling principles of our
government Is the complete separation of
church and state, with the entire freedom
of each from anv control or lnterf?renc by
th othr-r. This principle i Imperative
wherever American Jurisdiction extends and
no modification or shading thereof can b
a subject of discussion.
Need to Apply This Principle.
1 It Is necessary to deal now with th
reeults of establishing a government con
trolled by this principle In the Philippine
islands, which have for centuries been gov
erned under an entirely different system,
with -church and state closely united and
having functions of the one exercised by
sgents of the other, where the church h3S
long controlled, and aotfd virtually as the
agent of the state In the public instruction
and public charities and has from time to
time acquired large properties held bv It
or bv its subordinate corporations or offi
cers for these public uses. A novel situa
tion has been created under which th ad
justment of means to ends appropriate to
the former system entirely falls to produce
the intended result under the new system
and the separation of church and state

Mud In Sew York, Brown Snow In
Austria, Colored Hall In Russia.
New York's recent shower of muddy rain
Is one ot those phenomena which, tnough
not common, occur at long Intervals In all
parts of the world. Not long again at
Flume, In Austria, there was a heavy fall
of half-frosen, brownish snow and In Italy
and some parts of Germany there was a
downpour of red rain. It was found upon
investigation that the brown snow of
Plume was caused hv the admixture of
sand which had been blown from the desert
of Sahara hundred of miles away across
the Mediterranean, and the red rain was
not a deluae of Dlood, as the- peasants
thought, but was due to the presence of
quantities of minute infusora. which some
