RADICALISM IS DENOUNCED
New York, Aug. 21. Th federal
administration was assailed today at
business sessions of the American
, Federation of Catholic societies.
Anthony Mitre, secretary of the fed
eration, said that Catholic protest
to the government against the
recognition of, Carrania were like "a
voice in the wilderness."
At a meeting of the German Catho
lic Central Verein the administration
was charged with favoritism towards
. the entente allies, in an address by
Charles Korz, president of the New
' York state body.
Mr. Matre, in his annual report,
dwelt at some length on Mexican af
fairs. Speaking of the recognition of
Carranza, he said:
"Despite our honorable protests,
the arch-persecutor of the church in
Mexico, was recognized and the voice
' of 16.000,000 Catholics was like one
crying in the wilderness-"
New York, Aug 21. Business ses
' tions of the American Federation of
Catholic societies and allied organiza
tions began here today with nearly
20,000 delegates attending. "Catholic
week," with a series of meetings and
ceremonies which are to continue to
and Including Friday, was inaugurated
yesterday with a pontificial high mass
in St Patrick's cathedral, attended by
three cardinals and the apostolic dele
gate, as, well as most of the delegates
to the federation.
The opening session of the federa
tion today was devoted in part to
; hearing the reports of the national
president, John Whalen, and of the
national secretary, Anthony Matre
An address was delivered by the Right

cording to the annaul report on Pub

ance of vigorous campaigns against
what were termed "pernicious cults

included birth control and socialism
and anarchy, was advocated.
The committee also warned direc
tors of American colleges not to per

To such radicalism was attributed
' much of the present unrest in Mexico.
"Tons of anarchistic literature sent
across the Rio Grande during the last
five years, for which the radicals of
the United State are said to have

England and Sweden
Copenhagen, Aug. 21. (Via Lon
don.) According to the Dagen's
Nyhederu, the Swedish -government
has published a blue book containing
the diplomatic documents relating to
the negotiations between Sweden and
England regarding the seisure of
British mails to Russia. This seizure
was in retaliation for the taking by
the British of parcel post from
America to Sweden, , . .
The blue book state that on the
initiative of Great Britain, an agree
ment wa reached by which the Brit
ish mail were to b released, Eng
land agreeia; to the establisnhment of
an arbitration court after the war
to settle the question of it seizure
of American mail. ;
After this agreement, the Blue
Book saya, and most of 60,000 pack
ages of mail seized by Sweden had
been forwarded to Russia, England
suddenly demanded that Sweden al
low M English mails to pas to Rus
sia in the future. Sweden refused to
accept this amendment to the original
agreement, whereupon England with
drew its concession regarding the ar
bitration court. The Dagena Nyhe
deru says thai several Swedish news
papers fear a serious disagreement
between the two countries.

Western Men Optimistic
Some of' the incominsr oresidenta
were more ootimiatic about the situ

oi tne western men declared that if
his road alone were involved he un
questionably would resist the de
mands of the men to the last, but he
considered the question a national one
and for that reason was sure some
common ground would be found to
base a settlement on.
Administration officials said tndav
the president was carefully studying
the entire question- with the idea of
makng some recommendations to
congress probably in his next mes

. Country' Star Here.
The $12,300 hung up in stakes and
purses has served as an incentive to
attract the bright stars of the coun
try' leading lacing stables, and the
prospect of seeing some turf battles
that may make harness racing history
has fashioned out the Cornhusker
metropolis as the Mecca of prominent
turfmen from the four winds.
The half-mile oval at the East
Omaha Speedway, admittedly the
fastest of its distance between the
coasts, is in ideal condition, and every
indication points to par-excellent rac
ing weather for the week. The Omaha
Driving club officials anticipate the
largest crowds that ever attended a
harness race meeting in the western
country, where the program is not
held in connection with a fair.
Trotting Classic Today.
In addition to the 2:14 trotting class

Lansing Orders Inquiry Into Al
leged Lease of Large Tract
Near Panama CanaL
SPANIARD ACTS AS AGENT
Washington, Aug. 21. Investiga
tion of reports from Panama that a
60,000-acre land concession at the At
lantic end of the canal is being sought
by a Spaniard named Ternandez, pre
sumably for Japanese interests, was
ordered today by Secretary Lansing.
Rumors of a similar nature have
been common since the canal was
well under way, but it was not until
several months ago that they reached
a well defined outline. At that time
it was commonly believed in diplo
matic circles that private Japanese
shipping interests were seeking land
through Spanish intermediaries to es
tablish a base for storing coal at
lower rates than could be had from
the American government monopoly
base.' So far as is known nothing
definite came of that plan.
The present reports are that Fer
nandez, Havana agent for Japanese
interests, secured a 60,000-acre land
concession through the activity of
Ramon Valdes, whose recent election
to the presidency of Panama may
possibly be disputed by the United
States because of alleged frauds and

Finds Wilson Wanting
When the Republicans and former Progressives in Carnegie Hall applauded the em
phatic statments in Mr. Hughes' speech accepting the Republican Presidential nomination,
they were endorsing "the real Republican Platform," as one writer calls it. The applause
was joined in by Colonel Roosevelt, who sat in a conspicuous box and told reporters, after
the meeting, what "an admirable speech" it was and how satisfactory he found the speaker's
exposure of Mr. Wilson's Mexican Policy and Mr. Wilson's handling of our foreign affairs.
In THE LITERARY DIGEST for August 12th, is an extensive article setting forth the
views of both the Republican and Democratic press of the nation on this, Mr. Hughes' first
important public utterance since his nomination.
Other articles of timely importance in this issue, are :

Mr. Hughe has "stolen a march on President Wilton and has delivered a telling blow against him
in man States," remarks the Washington Pott, by coming out for the Susan B. Anthony
Constitutional Amendment, providing for Woman Suffrage. What the country
thinks of this latest move, as reflected in the Nation's Press
is presented in this interesting issue.
