I His Holiness Says No President

Special Cable Detpatch to The Six,
Romk, Nov. 2. A Roman prelate who
is supposed to bo on Intimate terms with
Pope Pius X. has told Tnp. SDN corre
spondent that .his Holiness is not inter
ested In the American Presidential elec
tion for the simple reason that he does
not know the difference botweon'tho Dem
ocratic, the Republican or tho Progressive
As a matter of fact, although the Pope's
knowledge of American political parties
may bo slight, his interest In the election
howover, is very considerable. The
Pope's sympathies nro for President Taft,
whoso work in connection with the settle
ment of tho Philippines friar lands ques
tion is greatly appreciated by tho'Vatican.
Mr. Taft has many friends in the Sacred
Collego from whom tho Pope has derived
valuable information about tho President,
whom ho admires greatly.
Col. Roosovelt is decidedly not persona
grata at the Vatican, where he is known
only because of the Bellamy Storer Bean
dal and the lamentablo affair in connec
tion with his prospective audience with
the Pope in 1910. Gov. Wilson, 'is entirely
unknown and is regarded as' an 'enigma.
The Pope does not influence the Cath
olic vote. Recently ho was reported as
saying: "Hitherto every President has
not limited In any way tho freedom the
Cathollo Church in America. This' polloy
will surely bo continued in tho future."
Tim Catholio electors, like the others in
America, therefore are Tree to vote for a
candidate of tholr.own choice.
, As far as can lie ascertained, if President
Taft is reelected his Holiness will cable
his congratulations. It is uncertain what
ho will do in caso of the election of Gov.
Wilson, but it is quite certain that he will
not congratulate Col. Roosevelt If lie
should bo the choice of the American

The Turkish defeats have caused deep

German army. In a lecture tp the General

conditions, in the Turkish army which, he
declared, as compared with the conditions
and tho spirit of the military, forcos.of the
Ralkan States, held no prospect' of a
Turkish victory. .
The leading Qerman military men deny
that the war, up, tp tho present has demon
strated the superiority of one school, for
while tho Bulgarians have some officers of
Russian training and Greece has some of
French training, many of the omocrs in
both ormiet have, been trained in Ger
