OMAHA. Dec 1. To the Editor of The
Bee: A month or two sgn The Bee print
ed a sketch of "George Francis Train ln
Omaha." It Included hta prediction that
the teaa and silks of China would Boon
pass through Omaha on a completed Pa
cific railroad. Nobody gave the least
credit to what Mr. Train aaid because
nobody who listened to him believed the
Pacific road would be finished In his time.
But the teaa and alike from China ar
rived on time and ln good order.
Mr. H- P. Makley. of Grand Island, was
a prominent man In Omaha's Union pa
cific shops forty years ago. Ha is the
at Columbus and Brady Island when
Durant brought out distinguished guests
from ths east In the famous "Lincoln
car," and other cars, during ths con
struction of the road. At Columbus and
Brady Island these cities would be
erected, lighted streets would be laid out
and named, with the tents on either side.
Guests would leave the care and camp
for a night In the tents. At Brady Island
a platform naa built and speeches were
made, one by Mr. Train, of course. A
newapaper was actually printed and cir

PUBLIC WORSHIP IN FRANCE
M. Briand Explains Conditions Inder
Which It Mast Be Conducted
After December 11.
PARIS. Dec, 2. M. ; Briand. minister of
public instruction, baoiarddressed a circular
to the prefecta lnstruetmsj them as to the
conditions under which public worship may
be carried on after December 11, when the
law of associations goes into effect. He
explains that if congregations default In
the formation of associations religious
services will come under the law of 1M
as public meetings, but that as services
differ in many points from meetings it is
the duty of the authorities to adapt the
law in order to faciittate In every way the
carrying on of services, especially the
clause by which previous notice of an In
tended meeting Is exacted.
Buildings, the circular says, shall be
divided Into two classea, the first belonging
to the state or local authorities, and the
second belonging to ecclesiastical estab
lishments. If not taken by associations
before the expiration of the delay allowed
by law. Those of the first class are to
return to the state or the local authorities,
and those of the second are to be seques
trated until a governmental decree deciding
to whom they shall be handed over is
Issued. The authorities cannot under any
pretext close or assign buildings of either
class to any other use than that of public
worship, carried on in conformity with the
law of 1SS1.
The clerf-y, according to the circular, are
merely occupants of churches, and without
any legal rights, and cannot claim any
dues except offertories made during serv
ices. Presbyteries and bishops' palaces,
the circular points out. are not directly
connected with public worship and the au
thorities have the right to dispose of them
bubject to certain conditions or to lease
them to the clergy.
