I Surprise la expressed at the alienee the
! pop continues to maintain concerning
i the Separation law of France, and whether
or ndt it la to be accepted by the church.
There are two currenta of opinion on the
subject of the Impending papal decision.
Some assert It to be absolutely certain that
. the pope will refuse to authorize the for-
matlon of public worship aaaoclatlona on
,- the lilies told down by France, whereas
othera declare be will not venture to re
1 fuse -submission to the law seeing how
; disastrous thla would be to the material
-l-'mterests of the church and of the prlest-
hood. The state of uncertainty haa been
f already prolonged much beyond what wua
I anticipated when the French bishops met
v ! In Paris In congreaa and expressed their
y views on the subject and it la hoped that
' , the Pope will soon make public his program
, concerning the matter.
i The condition of the pope's health this
mid-summer gives rise to serious anxiety.
He la much troubled by gout, and In al
' most constant pain. Uls holiness Is also
very depressed. He has not the Iron will
power of Leo XIII, and he feela the matter
of being compelled to remain In the Vatican
very keenly. Cardinal Oreglla, who also
suffers much from gout, recently experi
enced great relief from a change of air.
When he visited the pope on his return
Pius X, said to him, "You seem to want
ma to die here In the Vatican, and yet I
feel If I too could only have a change of
ftlr that I would b. saved." But at the
name time, his holiness' mental depression
la such that he doea not desire tu face
, uch a serious problem as that of lcuvlng
J the Vatican would be.
In return for a lnrre subsidy th" new
contractors will offer a reduction of sixty
hours In the mall transit, partly owing to
the employment of a fleet of steamers with
a uniform speed of fifteen knots and partly
owing to the selection of Rrlndlsl as the
European mail port In place of Naples.
One fleet of eight or nine steamers prob
ably nil to be built In British yards, al
though there Is power to purchase suitable
vessels will be thoroughly up-to-date In
the matter of passenger accommodation.
These vessels, each of the 11,000 tons, will
have great cargo-carrying capacity. They
will. In fact, be able to carry as much as
.coo tons of measurement and dead weight,
whereas some of the steamera at present
employed in the mall service can carry not
much more than 1.5O0 tons. To this very
large provision of space for the swift
transit of Australian products to Europe
the highest Importance la attached by the
colonies as well as by the new contractors.

CHICAGO, Aug. 4 -For the first time In

and the voters were given an opportunity
to express their preference through their

senators down to sheriff. The new primary
law passed by a special eeswlon of the
legislature last spring was given Its first
trial and gave general satisfaction. In
the tempestous districts In Chicago the
vote was large, but In the districts where
there were no local contests apathy was
manifested by the voters, and In these sec

Today's vote for United States senator

upon the authorities to cancel the license
of any saloon keeper violating the law
Should a license be taken away the saloon

ST. PETERSBURG. Aug. 4-Wlth a gen
eral strike formally declared and the
country apparently on the threshold of
glaantio struggle, minor Issues fade
Into t lie background. If the strike Inaug
urated today gathers sufficient headway to
endanger the life of the state it has vir

Nicholas Nicholalevllch will be named
commander of all the troops In the em

would be tantamount to the decreeing of

however, that the government will not
be driven to this extremity, aa the show
ing made today by the St. Petersburg
proletariat was not ln)reslve. Al
though nearly 70.W0 workmen are reported
to be out at nightfall, many of the men
ppear to be entering the struggle with
heavy hearts. The spontaneity with
which practically the entire nation ar
rayed itself against the old regime laat
fall is lacking; the endurance of the peo
ple has been sapped by the long strain,
the sympathy of the more conservative
liberals hus been alienated by fear of a
revolution and the lowest elements of -the
population have been organized Into what
are known as "black hundreds" and are
ready to enter the fight on the side of
tbe government if the signal Is given.
Dissensions also are rife among the lead
ers over the opportuneness of the battle.
But these will probably be short lived it
the response of the country shows that th
nation endorses the movement.
Cltlea Will Decide Issne.
Moscow and St. Petersburg, or rather 6L
Petersburg, sre expected to decide the Is
sue. The railroaders, upon whom tne
Intlal success depends,, although committed,
have not yet formally ordered a atrlke.
On the ulterior object of the proletariat
leaders, which at present Is masked, must
depend the attitude of the troops. If the
military supports of the, government stand
up as they did at Sveuborg and Cronstadt
the leaders acknowledge that the game Is
lost, but even so they declare thut de
feat, it It forces the disaffected portion of
the army to show Its colors, will only pre
pare the way for final victory. .The waver
ing of the artillerists at Crohsladt and
the attitude of a major por"n of the crew
of the armored cruiser Pamyat Azova,
which remained nominally loyal, and which
they believe would undoubtedly have
thrown Its lots with the rebels. If the
rebels had received expected support from
the Revel fortress, they cite as being In
their favor and they are confident that If
put to a test thousands of soldiers will
refuse to fire on the people and that weak
spots will develop in the army where the
government least expects them.
While the authorities undoubtedly are
anxious, they manifest equal confidence
that the army will not fail the emperor
In a crisis and that the strike will prove
a dismal failure. Indeed, the faction now
In control seems to welcome an Immediate
test, tn the conviction that It will be able
to scotch the revolution for a long tlma
