"WELCOME TO PAPAL "ENVOY
TO CALL OUT MEN
ALL ALONG COAST
Baltimore. Md.. May 12. A general
strike of all transport workers of the
Atlantic Coast, compared to which the
strike now In progress In this city will
be a mere trifle. Is on the verge of be
ing a reality, according to some leaders
of stevedores In this city
Authority for calling such a strike has
been received from New Tork headquar
tres of the executive committee of the
National Transport Workers, and exe
cution of orders lies entirely within dis
cretion of local organizers.
Charles Jackson, brother and law part
ner of Mark Jackson, a leader of the
movement, declared this morning that
unless a mote looklmr toward arhltra.
tlon is oiade by steamship men In the
next few days not only Baltimore, but
every city along the'Atlantlc Coast will
find Its shipping at a complete standstill.
Plans Are All 3faile.
' W hat e all our plans laid down. W
can have all the men out In a few- days,"
said Jackson this morning 'Heretofore
we have hesitated to act along such
broad lines, out ef consideration for the
city of Baltimore and the people of the
country- generall) We have, however(
met with no encouragement from the
ship owners, and we believe that the time
has come for more concerted action.'
"Do you think that you have the sen
timent of the transport workers In gen
eral with you. and that your organiza
tion Is efficient enough to bring about
obedience to the strike call"
"We are sure of It. The men are with
u-every one So far we have not a
single defection reported. And we are
in constant communication with other
branches of the union, all going to show
inai ine men are prepared and anxious
to walk out when such action win be
necessary to help the stetedores here.'

cause Valentine Did Not
) Hear All Parties.
President Taft yesterday dictated s
statement, which was made public after
his departure for Ohio, In -which he took
cognizance of recent charges bearing on
his attitude toward the Roman Catholic
Church. The President denied. tat MaJ
Archibald W. Butt, his personal aid. who
lost his Ufe In the Titanic disaster, waa
sent on "a mission to visit Pope Plus.
MaJ Butt went abroad, Mr. Taft said,
solely on account of his health. The
President said that he gave MaJ Butt
a letter of Introduction to the Pope, but
his letter contained no comment upon
the recent election of American cardinals.
Sent No Welcome.
The President also denied that he sent
a message of welcome to the newly ap
pointed apostolic delegate, as waa re
ported in some newspapers. The Presi
dent explained the reason why he sus
pended the recent order issued by Com
missioner of Indian Affairs Valentine,
forbidding the wearing of religious garb
by nuns In Catholic mission schools
transferred to the government.
Mr. Taft said he suspended the order
because It was Issued by Commissioner
Valentine without consulting the Secre
tary of -the Interior, and also because
the commissioner did not give all the
Interested parties a hearing on the ques
tion. Here Is the President's statement:
Encourages Every Church
"Among the Insidious .methods of at
tack pursued by some against his is the
attempt to arouse rellrJous'DrefffdfcAvnn
theeharge that" I am In'some manner
mjduly favoring" the tRoman Catholic
Churchy It has been my official pur.
pose, first, as the Governor General of
the Philippines, second, as Secretary of
War; and, third, as President, to en
courage every church as tar as possible
where this does not Involve Invidious
distinctions, and does not depart from
the rule which separates our State from
Official relations to all churches I have
unduly favored no church, but hate
treated tbem with absolute Impartiality.
"in 1902, I visited Rome and conferred
with Pope Leo XIII. In an attempt to
settle the friar land controversy which
had arisen In the Philippines, while I
was Governor General, and after a time
succeeded In doing so When, last
March, my aid. MaJ Butt, set out on
a trip solely for his health and proposed
to visit Rome, he asked me for a letter
of introduction to the present Pope, that
he mignt bate the privilege of an audi'
ence. and I gave him such a letter
"The letter contained nothing but s
statement of who MaJ. Butt was, and
an expression of the hope that he might
have the honor of being received. The
only note or letter from the Pone or anv
representative of his fn answer to this
letter of Introduction which I have re
ceived Is a cablegram of condolence for
all concerned sent by Cardinal Merry
del Val by direction of the Pope at the
time of the Titanic disaster, and making
an Inquiry as to the fate of MaJ. Butt.
to wnicn 1 repnea. expressing my thanks
and giving the fact. The letter Introduc
ing MaJ Butt contained no reference
to the recent appointment of American
Cardinals and no comment on. or refer
ence to, the Catholic Church or any
matter relating to it. The stories circu
lated that I have made any inquiry, or
have taken anywhere at any time any
pan. or mannestea any interest in
questions of social precedence of the
recently appointed Cardinals are wholly
Hints at Conspiracy.
The evidence that there Is a con
spiracy for the purpose of arousing re-
llglous prejudice against me is shown
by the fact that at the Instance of
some one unknown to me It
ported In a great many very respectable
newspapers that I sent a message of
welcome and congratulation to the newly
appoiniea aposioiic delegate oy wireless
to the Incoming steamer which was bear
ing him to New York. No such message
was sent by me or by any one by my
authority. A denial of the published re
port was Issued from the White House,
but the denial has obtained no publicity.
"The statement that I suspended an or
der made by the Indian Commissioner
affecting the garb of the teachers In cer
tain Indian schools which have been
transferred from the Catholic Church to
the government Is true. I did this for
the reason that the commissioner had
issued the order after consulting with the
Secretary of the Interior and without
awaiting his conclusions. The propriety
of the order has now been made the sub
ject 01 an open, free discussion by all the
parties In Interest and the decision of
the Secretary of the Interior win soon be
handed down. I say nothing of the merits
of the controversy except that the order
retersed a condition which has existed
for years, and affected thirty or forty
teachers who, as nuns, had been long be
fore my time Incorporated In the servfea
of the government and who would be In
