Up to the time of the investigation there
had been no effort to affeot any organlsa

but ths text tells of a aoclety of the Chlneae
spec's followers which was orranlsed In
Mew Tork City In 1307, among- the Mongo
llon students An Columbia university. Con
tending that Buddhism Is only a aystem
of ethics, they" undertook to - demonstrate
that Confucianism waa a real religion and
so a regular system of services waa estab
lished by. a well defined organization.''
The organised followers of Buddhism are
Chinee and Japanese. , Their churches,
known officially as' "tetnples," by' the Ir
reverent are referred to aa "Joss" houses.
There are sixty-two Chinese and twelve
Japanese temples In this country,', the
former being distributed over twelve and
the latter '.over three states. California

more than half of ' the Chlneae houses.
About forty, which went down under the

New Tork boaated fifteen of the Chlneae

country and conduot no recognised system

"We have today been in conference In
tha city of Huron upon the urgent request
of seventeen commercial and homestead
cluba of the Lemmon land district In North
Dakota and South Dakota to consider tha
serious nature of the altuatlon In whloh
tha homesteaders are placed In that dis
trict, in part, as the result of the recent
order of the department of date July 31,
1910, and executive order of July T, with
drawing from entry, sale and disposal cer
tain lands In said district and other dis
tricts similarly situated. The altuatlon
from the standpoint of the homesteadora la
really critical. Drouths have . prevailed
during "the present season, resulting In
widespread crop failure, causing many
more settlers than otherwise would have
done so to offer commutation proof In or
der to ' obtain proof title to their lands.
Action upon several hundred of such proofs
had been delayed heretofore In the depart
ment and now, since the promulcatlon of
tha executive order referred to, the local
land officers have adopted the practice of
suspending all homestead filings and proofs
until definite Instructions ahould be laaued
by the Interior department as to the scope
and effect of the orders referred to.
"We have considered the various acts of
congress and tha aald order with great care
and aa a result tnako the following sugges
tions and recommendations:
"First, that neither the order of with
drawal nor the law under which it Is made
Impairs the rights of bona fide homestead
settlers. Such settlers have full right to
make .commutation proofs and entry and
to receive patents promptly, unless their
lands aro classed as coal landa or are pro
tested as containing coal, In which case
they can accept a patent reserving the
coal to the United States or can have op
portunity to disprove the allegations of
the coal character of their lands and Insist
upon a' patent without reservation.
"Second, that lands embraced In lawful
homesteads Initiated prior to the date of
tho order of withdrawal are expressly ex
cepted from the force and effect ot the
withdrawal order by the terms of the con
servation aot of June 25, 1910, and are in
no way. affected thereby, that there is no
authority or Justification for the suspension
of action on commutation proofs upon
homesteads, but-they should pass promptly
to approval and certificate of final entry
unless tainted by fraud or other Irregu
larity. . '-' '
"Third, that It Is manifestly unjust to
bona-fide " homesteaders to auapend action
on their homestead proofs If they are will
ing to- accept the. limited patent with coal
reservation,' as provided In the act of June
22, 1M0. It Is also unjust te delay Indefi
nitely on final proofs protested for alleged
coal character of the lands. Hearings should
be provided promptly in euch casea tn order
that tha nature of the patent in each case
may be ascertained with the least possible
- "Fourth, that all final or commutation
homestead proofs, where protests have been
made aolely on the. ground that tha land
contains coal and the homestead settlera
have filed consent to accept title with coal
reservation, should be releaaed Immediately
from suspension and be passed for examina
tion and approval for patent. As there are
several . hundred cases of this character
said to' be under suspension, we earnestly
suggest that this recommendation be spe
cially considered for Immediate action. '
"Fifth, we recommend also that the
classification' cpntethplated by the presi
dent's withdrawal order of July 7, 1910,
should be made with all possible speed and
that an adequate force for thla purpose
should be put Into the field Immediately.

HOT BATTLE OVER A COMMA
Cartons Controversy In Chaurcn of
England Sheds Consider- '
A curious controversy rages among Eng
lish churchmen, and so bitter has It become
that statesmen have been drawn Into It,
and it threatens to provoke a debate upon
the floor of the House of Commons. IM
has to do not with the ooronatlon oath nor
with any other important matter of faith
and creed, but with the punctuation of the
Loid's prayer. Should there be a comma
tn the sentence beginning "Thy will be
done," and, if so, where should It go? In
other words, which of the following forms
Thy will be done In earth as it Is In
Thy will be done,
In earth as It Is In
Thy will be done in earth, as it Is
To understand the controversy. It must
be remembered that In England the privi
lege of printing the Bible and the Book of
Common Prayer Is a monopoly conferred
by ancient statute upon the king's printer
and the Ofcford and Cambridge university
presses. In this cour try any printer Is
free to publish-' an edition of the Bible and
ta make any changes In the text, that he
desires to make, but not so among the
English. , A London Quttenberg who sought
to Invade the monopoly of the three presses
mentioned would see his Bibles seized and
destroyed by the poltoe, and, In addition,
he would probably get six months in Jail
tor his pains. The idea Is that the monopoly
safeguards the purity of the sacred text.
Not long ago some one discovered, In an
English library, a manuscript prayer book
bearing , date of 16S2, and soon afterward
representatives of the three presses met
to examine this manuscript and to com
pare it with the prayer book of today for
the purpose of rectifying any errors or
corruptions that the latter might reveal.
This work accomplished, a new edition of
the prayer book was issued, and at once
a number of argus-eyed readers discovered
that a comma appeared, for the first time,
In the passage mentioned above. In pre
vious editions , there had been no comma
at all In the sentence, but now there was
one after the word "done."
Thus the row began, with a loud protest
from Dr.' H. C. Beechlng, a canon of West
minster Abbey. . Dr. Beechlng protested
that' the comma destroyed the traditional
rhythm of the sentence and thus outraged
every English Christian. Going further, he
showed that -there was no justification for
It In the seventeenth century manuscript
that the representatives of the three presses
had examined, , for in that manuscript,
though ' a comma actually appeared In the
sentence, It was not after "done," but after
"earth.". A flood of letters denouncing and
defending the invading comma then began
to appear tn the newspapers, and one day
Lord Hugh Cecil, that tower of orthodoxy,
arose In the Houae of Commons and de
manded that -Winston - Churchill, who, aa
home secretary, Is officially the secular
heed ot the Anglican church,, explain the
sacrilege. Mr.-- Churchill gingerly - side
stepped. And so the controversy continues,
with a great emission ot abuse and many
letters In the newspapers. The foes of the
comma threaten to take the matter to th
courts, and even talk of besieging Parlia
ment with a monster petition for redress,
signed by millions of the 'orthodox. And
meanwhile the friends of the comma defend
It, alleging that It Improves not only the
rhythm, but also the sense of the disputed
passage. Baltimore Sun.

Wallace Throvra from
Mrs. Josephine Peverln, 17S South Twenty
second street, died of terrible burns from
scalding water shortly after S p. m. Friday.
She received her Injury about 9 o'clock
Thursday morning while carrying a boiler
full of scalding water from her range to the
porch at the rear door of the kitchen. As
she was accustomed, she placed a folded
towel and set the heavy boiler on her
shoulder. Just at the door her foot slipped
and tne deluge of seething water drenched
her entire body.
She has been living alone at the residence
and no one waa with her at the time of the
accident. Mrs. Mary Kratky, with whom
she has attended mass every day for
nearly ten years, missed her Thursday
morning from her accustomed appointment
and after the service went at once to dis
cover the cause. She found the poor
woman In bed and although acarcely able
to move, Mrs. Severin said she was not
much hurt, and when asked If she needed
a doctor, said her burns were not bad
enough for that The doctor was not called
until 1 p. m. Thursday when the pain had
become so severe that she was about to
collapse from sheer agony. The doctor dis
covered that the extent of the burns were
too severe for recovery and gave attention
to her physical relief. Mrs. Mury Toman of
Plattsmouth was sent for and she arrived
on the afternoon train Thursday.
Friday morning the auff..-ing woman In
sisted that her daughter teturn to Platts
mouth, for, ahe said, "I don't need you
and I will be better In a day or two. The
children moat be cared for and they need
you moat." The daughter had barely ar
rived home before being warned of the
rapidly approaching death of her mother.
She hastened to South Omaha and attended
her last moments.
There are five grown sons In the family,
Joseim, Julius, Frank, .Peter of ban
Raphael, Cal., and Thomas of Washington.
The funeral arrangements will not be
made until these sons are heard from.
Since the Injured woman was able to give
a full account of the accident no Inquest
will be held. The deceased was 63 years
old and was widowed.
