ROME. Sept. Ki.-iNew York World Cable
gram. Fpe-lal Telegram.) Timely with the
arrival of Cardlnel Olsons In New York In
the expression recently urn d by Pope Plus X
regarding his conference with the American
cardinal. "I have learned more," he snld.
"about the church In America hy several
convr.citlons with Cardinal Gibbons than I
ever CM fiom oil the reports of the propa
ganda." Huch sn expression from Plus X Is not
without significance, and every one In Rome
Is firmly convince J that, regarding the
church In the United States, the new pope
Is thoroughly In sympathy with the liberal
views of the American cardinal and the
party wiilili he represents in the Catholic
i hierarchy of his country.
There Is no denying that the American
bishops, no matter how much united In
matters of dogma, are divided -Into two
(n.stlnct classes rrg.iruing cnurcn pounce.
The so-called "llbersl" party, whose fore
most representatives are Cardinal Olbbons
"a. id Archbishop Ireland, favors a liberal
policy In the conduct of church affairs In
America that will be more In keeping with
the surroundings and the enlightened In
telligence of tho American people. ,
The other rrty, which was responsible
for Leo XIII condemnation of so-called
Americanism. Ik represented by those who
wish to see Introduced In America all the
customs qf the church us they obtain In
J'athollc countries, notwithstanding the fact
that the surroundings and the condition of
I the people are totally different.
Contest Oirr Archbishop.
Tha silent war continually going on be
tween the two parties finds a permanent
Held of contention In the influence which
Is brought to bear In Rome regarding the
selection of candidates for promotion and
appointment.- Just at present tha bone, of
contention Is tha appointment of a new
archbishop of Milwaukee, for which place
several candidates have been named. The
liberal party among the hierarchy favors
the appointment of Bishop Spalding of
Peoria, whoso lPwrwl views are well known
all river Iho.worirrT-antr rsprrlally in Ilorae,
where some of the cardinals of the propa
ganda consider him In rrcnt part responsi
ble for the origin of Americanism in the
church. Of tho group of cardinals opposed
to him, Hatolll and Martinet)!, both former
apostolic delegate to the United States, are
the most prominent.
It Is well known In this connection that
both tho former apostolic delegates are
looked upon by many In Rome and in the
TTnlted M'.ates as really detrimental to the
best Interests of the curies In America.
Under the preceding pope they held much
Influence, for Io XIII when at sea re
garding the solution of many of the difficul
ties of the American church, relied entirely
on the advice and experience of his former
representatives at Washington, who were
the only onea he could consult and who
therefore had things their own way.
Cardinal Gibbon se'aora went to Rome,
and even then local Influence made his ad
vice and opinion of little value In the coun
cils of the Vatican. Now that Plus X has
(shown a partiality for. the American car
dinal's point of view, It Is freely predicted
that a more libera! policy In the conduct
of the ecclesiastical affairs of America will
begin, and that the Influence of Batolli and
Murtlnei:i will be much curtailed.

Berget, "but hi statement shows that he

There Is Dractlrally no wind at the Azores,
that being the point of highest atmospheric
pressure, the air currents always being ir
regular. Starting from the Canaries we
know what to expect. And for the dura

days as the shortest and twelve the long

about 630,000 cubic feet, which is not ex
traordinary as to dimension, for during the
exposition at Paris In 1878 ascents were
made with a balloon of 800,000 cubic feet,
taking up more than 100 persons at a time.
We shall take a skipper and two sullors to
man the boat which we shall take along In
case of accidents.
"The observations which will be possible
during the trip will be of the greatest In

our theories are borne out there Is no rea

Mitchell Henry was a power In the cotton

by the crop; he had business houses In I
Belfast and Manchester: he was called '
"Tho Cotton Lord of Manchester;" his In
fluence reached out to New Orleans and
Calcutta. Bom of an aristocratic family
of the Isle of Wight, Mitchell Henry made
a great fortune.
To rear his castle, to create his estate, he
sought the wildest section of Connemara
then; the lovely seclusion of tho "Twelve
Pins," or Beno. one long mountain with
twelve peaks rising from it at regular Interr
vals, of which the highest, Ben Baun, Is
2,400 feet above the sea level. There he
bought l.li'rO acres of hind.
One purpoue was to give him a political
foothold, and in consequence he became a
member of Parliament and held the seat
six years. But Mitchell Henry had another
purpose to build a country homo, and he
bullded so well that lately rumor has often
pointed to romantic Kylemoro castle as a
probable royal residence, for the king has
no residence In Ireland and wants one.
Mitchell Henry selected a site In a valley,
but the valley was not wide enough. He
employed an army of laborers, workmen
and masons. He cut away half of Diamond

see her one would never y 'late her with

In the ironing room sho looks as fresh as

with a little song on her Hps, and kneps
half an eye on the -street door for a pass
ing flirtation. In tho window there Is
always a bouquet of flowers and frequently
a sleek tat curled up. On the wall hangs
some gay little Illustrated calendar. Some
times a plaster of a Punchinello sits upon
tho shelf. Very often a canary hangs in
the front shop window and chirps while tho
little washerwoman sings to a brisk movA

It Is eusy enough to associate the Pari

is no hint of soapy, red elbows about her,
The washing all appears to be done sub

LONDON. Sept. 26. (New York World
Cablegram Special Telegram.) Tho British
cabinet crisis has been a most mysterious
affair. Never before haa It taken so long
to fill three places In any cabinet. The de
lay Is accounted for solely by King Edward
refusing to accept offhand, and, as a matter
of course. Prime Minister Balfour's recon
struction scheme, which was prearranged
with Mr. Chamberlain.
The. war commission report made a pro.
found impression on the king, who shares
the public d.strust of the present ministry,
and he Insisted on an attempt to introduce
new blood Instead of tho mere dummy
Dlacemen Mr. Bulfour proposed. If there
were a strong united liberal opposition un

have gone to the extreme length of revis

when Lord Salisbury resigned aa a protest

The kings principal adviser Is Lord
Esher, formerly Bailol Brett, M. P., the Jn
of the late master of the rolls, and at one
time private secretary to the duke of
Devonshire. He has attained within the
last few years extraordinary Influence Over

his taste for court ceremonial and page

coronation. But he la also a man of talent.

Unable to repay him adequately for his
services, the king got Blr Ernest Cassel

Irish party assisted the liberals to force a
dissolution In the present state of pqhlle
feeling, the latter might get a majority so
large as to render them independent of the
Irish party In the next Parliament.
Alarming rumors concerning the king
were flying about Thursday night, based
upon the departure of Sir Frederick Treves
for Balmoral. But the' famous surgeon's
presence was subsequently explained by
the statement that the king desired to
consult him respecting some suggested re-
f orn s In the army medical department.
The king la in excellent health, but great
trouble Is experienced in preventing him
from eating too much. He has been
especially warned against the flavored deli
cacies his particular friend, the marquis
of Soveral, has a talent for preparing.
The king comes of a family of heavy eat
ers. Queen Victoria had an astounding
appetite. When sho fancied a dish she
would have two or three helpings, without
Interfering with the execution she did on
the remainder of the repast.
One of the first things the king did on
his first visit to Balmoral after his acces
sion was to have the marble statue of
John Brown, erected by Queen Victoria,
carted away to tho pretty cottage pre
sented by the queen to her favorite serv
ant's family. The king has now gone a
stop further by buying out the Brown
family, and getting them off the royal
John- Brown and hli kin are Intensely
disliked by all the royal family, who re
sented the Influence the unlettered old boor
exercised over Queen Victoria. Because the
queen backed him up In his insulting
pretensions the late Empress Frederick
never visited her mother for thirty years,
while the late duk of Edinburgh never
went to Balmoral for eighteen years be
fore his death.

The rumors current yesterday that Bul

setting forth that unless satisfactory as
surances were received that the Ottoman
troups would be withdrawn immediately
from tho Bulgurlan frontier. Bulgaria
would forthwith mobilize her whole army,
were caused by the mobilization of a regi
ment of engineers. The divisional head
quarters here are Inclined to regard the
situation as being more serious and prepa

though tho streets present an animated

Tho Turkish troops continue to slaughter

the insincerity of the porte's Intention.
The Bulgarian representative, Nicol Reboff,

years an official of the Turkish govern

the inspector general, who Is president of

to show that the porte has not accepted
the demands made by the Sofia govern

situation appears to remain unchanged.
