what one at the members term "ti.
gant assumption of authority of the t.
ate." According to this gentleman, the
next speaker of (he house. Mr. Cannon, la
more determined than he was at the last
session to assert the dignity of what has
been commonly accepted as the popular
body of congress. - r
It la stated that Speaker Cannon during
his visit .to the east, and particularly dur
ing hla vacation on Representative Sibley's
yacht, took up with hla associates the
rights of the house of representatives with
a view of ascertaining just how far he
could expect, the members to stand with
i him upon the proposition of bringing back
J the old-time dignity of the popular branch
of government. .'.'.,'
No man In congress . has ..had more p-
portunlty to feel, the 'practical effect of the
Vn disposition of the senate to, have ita own
way than .the gentleman who retires rrom
the head .of the appropriations committee
of the houae to become speaker of that
body. Session. after Session in the closing
hours when big . supply .bills were In the

irany of the mpney kills with the hope that
the senate would see Ita way clear to meet
the houae conferees at least half way, but
with all Mr-Cannon's strength, of purpose
he has iound .himself on- many occasions
yielding his well known views to the ada
mantine poaitloa of the senate.
The house has fumed and fretted against
the practice of the senate and unimportant
members have delivered themselves of great
bursts of oratory against the senate's high-
I handed procedure, . but- these, fulmlnatlons
fell on the senate a harmless as the rain

It will come on the financial bin wnicn tne
the next session. The Issue between the
senate and the houae, it is anticipated, will ,
be Joined On ths bill to Increase ths cur
rency, and to give it an elasticity which
It doea not have. . Mr.' Cannon holds to
views diametrically opposed to those of
Senator Aldrlch. Mr.. Cannon's difficulty
will probably be In getting the house to
agree upon a measure and then to stand
hack ot that agreement. The fact 1 that
ths republicans ot the house are badly spilt
up on the financial question, while In the
senate the republicans are likely to support
any bill that the finance committee brings
tn. especially a bill framed by such men
as Senators Aldrlch, -Piatt of Connecticut,
Allison and Spooner.
Model of Ship Constitution.
A perfect model, soma six feet In length,
of the famous old United States frigate
"Constitution,"' has Just been completed by
O. W, Barnes, superintendent of the pen
sion office, and placed on exhibition In the
great hall of the Pension bureau, btelng
upon a pedestal about on the spot where
the bandstand is located during Inaugural
balls. The model Is perfect In every detail,
and being that of a style of vessel rarely
ever seen, even by those who live on the
seacoast, In these, modern days when all
or nearly all ocean-going craft are pro
pelled by steam, It Is a most Interesting
exhibit aalds from .the. fact that It la a
model of the. most famous .vessel, of the
early days of the American navy. It at
tracts the attention of hundreds of visitors
daily and will very probably be loaned to
tke Louisiana Purchase exposition. Its
builder served many years In the American
navy and It construction was a labor of
love. Mr. Barnes worked on his model of
Constitution at odd hours after his official
duties St the department ceased each day
for over a year., A card attached to the
frame on which 'the model of Contltution
rests gives many Interesting points reUtlve
to the dimensions of the famous frigate
and will doubtlesa be read with as much
Interest as is dally evlncrd by visitors to
the Pension bureau. The length ot Con
stitution over all was 304 feet, breadth of
beam, 43 feet. It was launched October
XI, 1787, and tarried when put Into com
mission 400. officers and men. The original
cost ot the ' f rlgsts was 3ul,Tls and the
total running expenses per year were tUS.

Humphreys of. Philadelphia aad Paul Re
vere, the famed rider nf the revolution,
furnished the copper used in sheeting the
hull. The first flag was hoisted on Con
stitution by Samuel NUftolson snd bore
fifteen stripe Instead of, thirteen. The
armament oflhe hlsterlo frigate waa com
Yosed of thirty twenty-four-pounders and

Rev. Tkomas Hendrlrk of Rochester,
If. Y., to Be Sent t the
ROME, Aug. O. The consecration of
Rev. Thomas Hendrlrk of Rochester, N. T.,
as' bishop of Cebu, P. I., was performed
this morning by Cardinal Ratolll, In the
church of the Franciscan missionary nuns.
The occasion acquired special Importance
because one of Cardinal Satolll's assistants
at the function was Archbishop Harty, the
metropolitan of the Philippine islands,
while contemporaneously Cardinal Satolll
consecrated Mgr. Cavallart as titular bishop
of Philadelphia, Asia Minor, whom the
pope has appointed provlcar of Venice.
Plus X still keeps for himself the patri- classes, having leared till the last that oc

Venice, which It claimed When Sarto was I
appointed to that post. , ' ' ' I
The scene today was picturesque In the
extreme when the red robed cardinal, sur-
rounded by the "bishops and a number of
nuns, clad entirely In white, proceeded to
the symbolic function of consecration. The
students of the American college came to I
Rome from their villa at'Castel Oondolfo
especially to assist at the ceremony. Card!-
nal Satolll later gave a dinner In honor of I
BIshoD Hendrtck. at which Archbishop

desires that several Irish priests be sent,

DUBUQUE, la.. Aug. JS.-Speclal.)-The
German priests of the archdiocese of Du
buque have banded together for the pur
pose of waging war on social! Ism. The key
note of the priests' campaign was sounded
from the pulpit of St. Mary's church this
morning' when Rev. Father Rohlman, as
sistant pastor, urged German Catholics to
bandon the teachings of socialism and do
U in their power to check Its growth.
Three hundred members of his congrega
tion are socialists and thu Catholic author
ities have become alarmed at the large
number of German Catholics who have be.
come affiliated with the socialist party the
It Is understood that this movement
among the German priests has the support
of Archbishop Keane, who, previous to his
departure for Germany two months ago,
urged the priests to do their utmost to
check the spread of socialism among their
parishioners and endeavor to reclaim Ger
man Cathollra who hive accented lis teach
ings. Circulars were sent to all of the Ger
man priests In the archdiocese Inviting
mem to come to Dubuque and attend a
series of lectures on socialism, and also to
discuss plans for organisation to fight It
from the pulpit. One hundred and fifty
nrleats from VAftnil riart nf thA nmhrtln.
cese responded to the call and all pledged
themselves tn rin their t,nf tn imhnM
the supremacy of the church and put down
socialism in their parishes. Next Sunday
socialism will be condemned from the pul-
pit of most of the German Cathollo
churches In the archdiocese and tke cru
sade win be continued with vigor until ths
priests are satisfied that they have re
claimed all of their parishioners who have
become affiliated with - the socialist party.
Archbishop Keane Is expected here from
Europe m a few weeks and he will take an
active part' In the crusade. v
