ROME, Dec 17. The Spanish government
ban notified the Vatican that It objects to
taking charge at present of the archives of
the papal nunciature at Paris, owing to
the rupture of diplomatic relations between
France and the Vatican. Spain certainly
would have accepted the task If requested
by the Vatican to do so when the papal
nuncio at Paris, Mgr. Dorenzelll, was re
called, as Prance then could not have
made any objection. But after the expul
sion of Mgr. Montagnlnl, the secretary of
the nunciature and the search of the
archives such a step as taking chargeof
the papal Interests In France might be re
garded as hostile to the French govern
ment. It I. stated In this connection that
the Vatican authorities made a mistake In
not applying Immediately after the search
of the archives to Count Tornlelll, the
Italian ambassador at Paris, not as the
ambassador of Italy, but as the
dean of the diplomatic corps, whose duty
It Is to protect the privileges of the corps.

tion of the government's bill amending the
church and state separation law of lSUu in
troduced In the Chamber of Deputies De

as It places the clergy under a real regime
of the common law.
Cardinal Uitm Palace.
PARIS, Dec 17. Cardinal Richards,
archbishop o( Paris, today voluntarily va
cated the episcopal palace and temporarily
accepted the hospitality of Denis Cochin,
the conservative deputy, at the latter's
residence In the Rue de Babylone. The de
parture of the primate was the occasion for
an Imposing manifestation on the part of
the majority of the bishops and priests of
Paris, many members of the noblHty and
about 8,000 men. women and children. The
gathering completely blocked the street In
front of the episcopal palace, and those
present sang the "Credo" and other Can
ticles as the cardinal was asslHted Into his
carriage by the coadjutor archbishop. Mgr.
Amlctte, and his two vicar generals. The
crowd knelt and chanted as the cardinal
seated himself In the vehicle. The vener
able prelate, who was much affected, then
arose and blessed the multitude. A num
ber of young Catholics thereupon ap
proached the carriage, detached the horses
and with difficulty dragged It through the
dense masses of people lining the streets.
On oil sides were heard cries of "Long
live Plus X" and "Long live the cardinal."
Aboutt hree quarters of an hour were
consumed In pulling the carriage from the
palace to the residence of M. Cochin, a
distance of about one mile. Detachments
of mounted republican guards preceded and
followed the procession. In order to prevent
any possible disorder, but there was not the
slightest attempt on the part of the crowds
to make any counter manifestation.
The clerical crowd subsequently followed
Mgr. Amlette to the church of St. Francis
Xavier, where the coadjutor celebrated a
benediction service, at the end of which he
thanked those present for the sentiments
they had manifested and exhorted them to
persevere In their attitude In defense of
the lights of the church.
As the coadjutor archbishop left the
church the crowd of clericals attempted to
re-form the procession, but the republican
guards Interfered and ended further demonstration.

SPOUTS OF A BAY.
UEOIUiE A. STOSE, THIS PEERLESS
Nebraska Boy the Bright Particular
Star of Base Ball Firmament.
The statistics furnished by the officials
of the American league should be In
tensely Interesting to the critics of George
A. Stone. For some utiange reason some
people think It Is Jealousy In many cas.s
u few of the wise ones cun t see anything
real to Stone. Well, there isn't much to
him; all he did last season was to lead
the American league in butting, field .S.ei
and steal mure buses than any other man
In the league but two. His batting average
was .3i8. And yet Cleveland thinks u
could not use Stone. Why nut? He out
plays, at every stage of the game, any mil l
on the Lajole team. The fact Is, Stone has
been criticised since his Hdvent Into pro
fessional base ball as having a false posi
tion at the bat and his position doesn't
look to be the best, but when a man hats
&. with a false position, what urc you
going to do? Maybe It will be discovered
after a while that all the other fellows
have been employing the fals. positions
and only Stone Is right. It is either that
or tv-jt he Is a natural hitter he can't help
hitting despite his fulse position. If the
latter is it, what in the world would he
do If he over swung around Into the cor
rect position? How far In the rear would
he leave the Lajoles then? Perhaps It is
a good thing that some of the nifn who
bat below Stone don't adopt false positions
Clarke of Cleveland batted .XN, the same
bs Stone; but the difference is, Stmie played
In 164 games and Clarke only llfty-seven.
Iajole came next, with an average of .HfS.
It Is Interesting to note that not a Chi
cago White Sox hit In the .300 class. Of
the regulars lsbell was the top-notcher of
the world s champions and he only batted
,LT9. Hahn, who hirrured the stultln' out of
the ball In the closing games of I lie world
series, quit with an average for the rrgu
lar season of .221. The team average was
the lowest of the league .!'. That makes
the league something of a lot of sluggers.
Cleveland led with .279.
Roy Patterson finishes another season
with the basement honors at the bat for
the American league. He closes this time
Every manufacturer of wheels In the
United States is looking forward to a ban
ner vear In 1907. and In this he Is amply
Justified by the remarkable Increase In sales
for the last three or four years. It may lie
said, however, that even were the sites of
blrvclen In the United States to double or
treble that the present wheel-making plants
would be found fully equal to the demand.
