This same spirit of conciliation has ani
mated the present pope in all his dealings
with the French government whose ac
tions against the religious congregations
lias been a matter of history. It was
en account of the anti-clerical measures
adopted by the French Parliament thst
the lata Leo XIII suspended all proceed

the national heroine of the French people.

Ths French government however, has

Vatican authorities are anxiously await

abolition of the concordat of 1801 and the
absolute withdrawal of support from the
church by the French government, which
for more than a century has paid tbe salar
ies of bishops and priests and the whole
expense of maintenance of tbe churches.
Bishops Fa vr tesaratlsa.
Several of tbe French bishops, principal
among- them the bishop of Arochelle. nave
declared themselves In favor of the aboli
tion of the concordat and of the entire
separation of church and state In France,
without consulting- the Vatican. W
" If for no other reason, they would at

of the government which Is pledged by
tr js lis ti extend tbe same protection to

tbe Vnlted Bute, where the Independence
of church and state has been a greet ad
vantage to Roman Catholics and the prog

Tbese same prelates claim that the neces

French Catholics, once It Is knows that no

and a terraced rampart beautified with nu

The long standing dispute wss only set

Lord AJverrtone. though openly Inclined
to believe in the Justice of the American
argument that the United States was en
titled to tbe heads of Inlets as contained la
question five, held out that Canada bad es
tablished her case In questions two sad
three, dealing with the Portland, canal.
After luncheon Senator Lodge, Secretary
Root and Secretary Turner agreed to cede
those points and to start the Am erica a
boundary line from the bead of tbe Port
land canal, thus giving tbe Canadians that
channel and tome small islands on which
there are only a few disused atone houses.
This accomplished the majority of the tri
bunal agreed to fix, with this exception, the
entire boundary as outlined In tha Ameri

In order to catch trains for week-end visits
to the country. Nothing bad occurred

WASHINGTON. Oct. 17.-Tbe Associated
Pretis bulletin from London announcing the
decision of the Alaskan boundary decision.,
was t!ie first intimation received by tbe
State department that the commission bad
reached an agreement.
Although the bulletin from London Is ex
ceedingly brief. Stale department officials
say that it shows s distinct victory far tbe
Vr.iled States. It ia their opinion that tha
decision regarding the Portland canal
merely gives to Canada the poasessloo of
Pearse island, a small island tn the Port
land canal, and of no special Importance.
ThU detail of the controveras is admitted
by Plate department officials te hsve been
ojen to argument on all sides
Peart ifciu.nd is at ths mouth of ths
canal. The latter is divided between twe
channels of the island, and Canada form
erly bad Indisputable use of the easttara
channel. Vnder the present decision Can
ada will have the use of the western chan
nel. The mUn issue of the Canadian contention
Involved the outlet from the Klondike geld
fields at the bead of tbe Lynn canal, in
cluding the ports of Skagway and Oyea,
through which the Klondike business la
transacted. These ports rentals American
territory. Tbe decision ts taken ts eonoeds
the American claim. Tha Americans laid
especial stress upon their contentlos that
this strip should be measured from tbe
heads tt bays, while ths Canadians argued
that the measurement should be from the
main water of tbe ocean.
