French ifiniater Worship Telle of

NEITHER MARTYRDOM NOR PERSECUTION
Church Property. Will Be Forfeit,

taed for Catbollu
PARIS. Nov. J-The minister of publlo
Instruction and worship, M. Brland. today
announced in an authorized Interview that
the government did not regard th Catholic
church as being- in revolt against the law
providing fur the separation of th church
and statu or" against th state.
The Cutholio church having simply de
clined to take advantage' of It prlvllng
under the law, as the other religions did
on December 11, would forfeit Its 8,04.
of property and thereafter would liv under
the common law. There would be neither
martyrdom nor persecution cf the faithful.
The church, us stale and communal prop
erty, would remain open, for Catholic w0r:
The object for which the republican party
in France had struggled for thirty years,
the minister said, had been achieved. The"
concordat was at an eni, the state would
no longer contribute to the support o( any
religion and pnestB would no lunger enjoy
privileges- In both their duties and obliga
tions they would be on an equality with
other cltlxens. In other , words the state
wa at last neutral toward all religlona and
would permit the exercise of all of them,
with special favors to none.
The cabinet today approved th minis
terial declaration of policy. :
tbetr 'ravognlUou of universal

get up mornings
without having to
pull them out of bed.
Then breakfast is al
