resent matters as between church and '
Itato are) in a condition of suspense. There j
will be no further movement until Decern- ;
ber, when the question of the leasing of i
the churches by the bishop will come un- .
o'er discussion. At present the churches '
are open, and the priests permitted to say
mass; but It Is entirely on sufferance. At
any moment the government could close
the churches, and there Is little doubt they
would If they wre not afraid to rouse the
French people by such on extreme step
to open revolt.
They have offered to lease them to the.
bishops, but on the understanding that the
latter should keep them In order. Now, as
under the concordat, the minister of public
worship wa bound to keep them In proper
order and repair, but failed for the last
twenty-flvo yeara to do so, the amount of
money necessary to effect repairs on the
huge churches of Paris, such as St. Sulplce,
Notre Dame and the Madeleine, and on the
cathedrals of other towns, and to keep
them fit for public service In the future,
would be entirely beyond the means of the
church of France. They are government
property, and the bishops will not lease
them unless they are put and kept In re
pair. The government Is therefore on the
horns of a dilemma. They officials dare
not closo them entirely, and the prelates
will pot accept them under the conditions
Pop Condemns Project.
An attempt was made some time since
to form associations of laymen to lease
them on behalf of the church, but the
bishop refused to sanction the project,
and tho pope entirely condemned it., It
would lead to many abuses. The priests
would find their hands more tied in many
cases than before. Any noisy man, pos
sibly 'a politician, getting himself elected
on one of these committees could glva In
nnite trouble. In other countries It has
occasionally happened that a man well
meaning, but cranky, acting on a com
mute for the Improvement of a school or
church, hag been able to give a good deal
tf JtoUlfelfr -Uer they would not be well

j'ountenanc these association.
1 The French are a wealthy and generous
people, and now that the clergy ar left
to look to thorn for support they will ac
cord it freely. It will take aom little time,
because they have not been accustomed to

but they will com to learn their duties in
that, respect very oon, and will discharge
them gerterously. At the present moment
they contribute to the fund ; for tho
propagation of the faith more' than all
the rest of Europe put together, fn the
palmy days of the church in France, be-
for the revolution, they had 3,000 foreign
missionaries. They have now 87,000. This
statement 1 almost incredible, but It Is
true, and statistic bear It out.
French Not Irreliglooa
The French have a character for being
volatile and sincere and earnest about
nothing (except in the dangerous times of
war), and that is fairly correct. They
eertalnlv make no violent open protesta

being' an irreligious people. It 1 not quit

U1NDOS. S. .. l.-(Sneclnl )-The ques
tion has often been asked, "What Is the
policy of new Sinn Fein party In Ireland?"
A contributor to the official organ of the
Sinn Kelners throws a great deal" of light
upon the matter. He Is exceedingly iranK
snd. "makes no bones" about me eecreis ui

"Last vear. and. Indeed, ever since tho

ers were hopeful, but now they have be-
e sanguine of success. And wun re'
cruilb pouring In by the thousand and our
nnnnnents' right and left captured, how
could they be otherwise?" What, does ,

An anon as the Sinn Felners have suc
ceeded in getting the Irish members to
withdraw from Westminster they uueno.
to set us "a new constitution" in Ireland
In defiance of the act of union and of tho
king's authority. With reference to tht
national Parliament." wnicn is iu
created In opposition to the assemmy ai
Westminster, it is stated:
As the assembly that will sit In our capi
tal will be a Parliament in every n.c i
the term, it will naturally require an
executive and a ministry to carry oui
mandate. It will be representative of the
people. It will be the embodiment of the
principle, "rule of the people by the peo
ple"; it will be the head of an Irish state
comprising some 8.CO0.OCO of people; It will
be as much entitled to legislate and direct
the external affairs of Ireland as the
Cromwelllan Parliaments, or the conven
tions that bestow the English crowns on
William and Mary were entitled to maxe
laws and policies for England. Why,
therefore, should there not be a govern
ment? Theoretically, an Irish state will
have com into existence. Those who have
taken any oath binding themselves In the
service of the British government Will have
to alter their allegiance either oy repuai
atlng the oath or adhering to Its terms and
acting in the service of the Irish state.
Two Chsnlwn After Constitution.
iravina- obtained " new constitution"
by the mere setting up of two chamber
in Ireland-an upper and a lowr-what
will be the next step?
It would be rather difficult Tor aucn a
body a that proposed to direct the affair
of th country without an executive min
istry. For Instance, it could not devote
exclusive attention to industries, foreign
affairs, commerce or education at the samo
time. A person responsible to me inn
council-one of Its members well acquainted
with the subject would havo to be ap
pointed for conducting each aeparimem,
. that it would receive the attention and
care Us importance demanded. All these
heads of department would requir sal
aries; in other words, the officers of the
council should be a paid ministry. There
would be openings for Irishmen with a
good technical knowledge of Irish subjects,
political and economical.
Thus we would have a minister of for
ests, whose province it would be to super
Intend the reafforestation of Ireland by
the Irish county councils; minister of
agriculture, to assist and advise our farm
ers; a minister of education and a min
ister of Industries, to operate in their par
ticular sphere, and. lastly. I think there
should be a minister of agitation. The
latter position would not be a very en
viable one. but it would serve a very use
ful purpose. A person, when he makes a
study of any particular ubject, will dis
cover ways and means which would be
beyond the command of those who devoted
little or no study to the matter.
Ministry la Contemplated.
Again, if Ireland is to enter into ex
tensive foreign and commercial relations,
It will require minister to carry on the
work of these departments also. The coun
cil will require a minister of foreign af
fairs, on for commerce and one to work
the Irish organizations abroad In sympathy
with the home movement. A well con
ducted foreign policy would perhaps be
Blnn Fein's most effective weapon in fight
ing her foes. The great object of th
foreign minister would be to embarras
England and to take every po"l "ad
vantage of thl embarrassment. And never
was a time more opportun for the de
velopment of uch a policy than th pres
ent. Th Russo-Japanese war and Its
aftermath In Russia have Inspired national
movements all over the world. Thia Is
particularly the caae inside the pale of
that empire which Britons boast is syn
onymous with liberty. India, Egypt and
Ireland are vainly looking, Inside the pale,
for that which Englishmen have been say
ing for centuries Is there. Could not th
Copt and the Hindoo and the Gael work
together? Could not the Blnn Fein, the
Swadeshi and th Egypt for the Egyptian
movement be welded together into one
powerful ax for chopping the flesh off
John Bull' bones? A good foreign min

LONDON. Sept. 14. (Bpeclal.)-The United
Kingdom of Owal Britain and Ireland Is
the greatest gambling nation on the fare
of the earth. There Is more gambling In i
the British Islands than In the whole of the
other countries of the world combined. The
very papers that preach sermons here hava
every day columns of gambling news
relating to horse contests, stock exchange
speculations and the numerous kinds of
alleged .ports which are Indulged In for !
the British to gamble. As to tho crime
which arise out of British gambling, they
re uncountable. The thefts, suicides, Im
moralities, drunkenness and all manner of
evil that takes place in one year In Great
Britain and Ireland through gambling, are
hundredfold more numerous than during
the whole period of the existence of Monte
Carlo. As to the few suicides and crime
that occur In the latter place, they are
really hardly worth noticing. The people
who aro ruined, or commit suicide, are
undesirables, by whose death or ruin the
world is the wholesomer. The hypocritical
part of the business Is that while these
Journals condemn gambling abroad, they
ar too worldly minded to Indulge in
similar denunciations of their own country
men and women for being such Inveterate
and desperate gamblers.
British gambling Is not confined to the
male sex, or to any class of society. Toung
English women of station waste their lives
and reputation upon gambling at cards.
Other women are owners of race horses.

openly; at home they will hypocritically
only gamble in secret. We need some mis
sionaries, say, from Japan, to declare the
evils of gambling to the English. The
home societies for Its suppression are not
numerous enough, the evil has become so

General Strike on ISnmber of BiT
Lines of Northwest Has
ST. PAVL, Minn., 8ept. 14. A general
strike of boilermakers on the Chicago Great
Western, Great Northern, Omaha, North
ern Pacific and the Soo railroads was called
today, and it Is expected that before night
the shops of the entire systems of those
roads will be tied up. The boilermakers
are aided in their fight by their helpers,
and In the case of the Chicago Great West
ern, the machinists In the big shops at
Oelweln went out In sympathy.
The strike of the boilermakers followed
a refusal of the -allrmils to a:ede to a
demand for 46 cents nn I. our cast of Iro
Missouri river and ITVa cent west of that
rlver- Tt"18 railroads consider t.i bo the
heaviest demand ever maj.i by any of
their shop employes. As a comprimliie tho
railroads offered -41ft cent an hour east
and 4SH cent west of the Missouri river,
with the nine-hour day . for both. This
inorease would have been equal to a 1H
cent differential above the wages paid
machinists. The Great Western situation
I complicated by an. alliance between the
rogxhjnjjitg. and the boilermakers and th
machinists in the big shops at Oelweln,
Ia., struck In sympathy. On the other
line ' only the ' boilermakers and their
helpers went out. Of tho entire umber
of men out, the boilermakers represent
about one--hlr.l, while the rest are helpers
who have no grievances. Reports at head
quarters of the railroads here show thut
there are out on the Great Western, 225
men; Great Northern, 360; Omaha, ISO;
Northern Paciflo, 338, and the Soo Line
at Shoreham, 226. Railroad officials expect
that the strike will spread rapidly and that
they will be seriously handicapped at once.

Journal of Commerce, has assumed rathei
Interesting shape here hy the statement
of several agents of tho Inrgcr coal mining
concerns that would not present bids. Tholi
reasons are that they have not the nec

of equipment, says he lifts no apprehension
that the Navy department will be unable
to obtain all the coal needed for the fleet.
Some of the coal already Is pledged by th
companies through which the usual supply
is obtained. The department prefers that
the fuel furnished be the American product
to be shipped In American bottoms, but it
necessary will resort, though with regret,
to the use of Welsh coal transported In
foreign ships, if the prices submitted by
American dealers are regarded a prac
tically prohibitive;
