ROME, Aug. 14. The text of the pope's
long encyclical to the archbishops end
bishops of Frsnce concerning their future
conduct. In view of the enactment of the
laws providing for the separation of church
and state, sppeared In the Oeservstore
Romano today. It refers to the previous
encyclical condemning the general princi

arrived to Indicate what should be done to
defend and preserve religion In France.
"We deferred," the encyclical continues,
"our decision, owing to the Importance of
this grave question, and particularly
through a charitable feeling for the great
services your nation has rendered to the
church. Having heretofore condemned this
iniquitous law, we examined with the
greatest care Its articles to see if they
permitted the organisation of religious life
in France without Jeopardising the sacred
principles of the church."
Afer approving the recommendations of
the French hierarchy disapproving of the
law, the Encyclical says: -
Therefore, concerning cultural assoela

foreign bankers, associated with Joseph
Ramsey, Jr.. former president of the Wa

the new Keystone Air line will traverse
the Important bituminous coal fields of Cen

Pennsylvania railroad, and will also pierce
the anthracite region throughout its length.
It will not only be the shortest line through
Pennsylvania, but It will cross ths summit
of the Allegheny mountains 400 feet lower
than the Pennsylvania and will havs very
easy curve and remarkably low grades for
a mountain line.
Mr. Ramsey conOrma the above In a tele
