FRIAR QUESTION MAY
COME UP IN CONGRESS.
Member of Home Expresses Intention
to Cnll for Correspondence II e-
tireen Taft nnd Vatlcnn.
REPUBLIC SPECIAL
Washington. July 13. With the Enlled
States facing the friar lands negotiation,
a problem Involving the delicate question
of church and state more than any ever
before encountered. It is doubtful If the
next session of Congress passes without on
attempt to make It an issue In either the
House or tho Senate.
Already a prominent member of the
House has cxprejsed the Intention of .in
troducing, as soon as Congresj convenes, a
resolution calling for all the corrcfpondence
.exchanged . between Taft and the Vatican
and between Governor Taft and the War
Department officials.
The Friar lands negotiations will not
come up In Congress unless called up by
resoIuUoln. The Philippine Government
bills gives power for final action in the
matter by authorizing the Philippine Gov
ernment to negotiate for the lands of the
religious orders and to create a fund to
pay for them by Issuing bonds.
The Vatican, in answering Governor
Taft'snote containing the demand that the
Spanish friaars must be withdrawn forever
from their parishes, expressed surprise that
the United Stataes should call upon the
Vatican to withdraw the friars from the
enjoyment of their rights to follow their
profesnslon conferred by the treaty of
Parts. 4
At the same time, the Vatican proposes to
reach an agreement that the friars are to
be permitted to remain In Manila, a privi
lege they are entitled to enjoy as.. Spanish
citizens under the peace treaty. Indications
are that Governor Taft will be able to con
clude the negotiations by July 21. the time
to which his stay In Rome was extended.
Secretary Root Is expected to return here
some time the latter part of the week, but
Instructions regarding the answer he is to
make to the Vatican will doubtless be sent
to Governor Taft before Secretary Roat re
turns to Washington. He will go to West
Point from Oyster Bay.

Chautauqua. HU July li The Reverend
Sam P. Jones, the noted Georgia evangelist,
preached nt the Plasa Chautauqua this
morning, and ".W) persons crowded Into the
Tabernacle to hear him. The evangelist
took his text from the last chapter of the
book of Joshua: "Choose you this day whom
yon will serve. But as for mo and my
house, we will serve God."
In pait. he caid:
"Now. brethren, wo may have n very
profitable service this morning. It we aie
thankful and stau.
"Did you ever sit down glad and thank
ful, r.nd read the book of Joshua. In the
Bible? This Is a marvelous tcck. It Is re
ally the history tf God's goodness to u.
laau. A man like you and I. When we read
thu flrst nnJ second chapter of that rsa
velous book, we begin to sit and wonder S
God's unfailing goodness to us. We reid
on another chapter or two. and ask our
selves the question. 'Was God ever so ?ool
to any man as he vrhs to Joshua T And
then. why. aj you read. stop, and say to
youridf. 'Will Joshua allow God Almighty
to heap heaven upon him and not one v.-nrd
of thanksgiving or gratitude from him?
And on and on you read, and every chap
ter la but the history of God's mercy an-1
goodncs.' to Jcshua. until you stop end suy.
'Of nil the Ingratcs that ever lived. Joshua
was the greatest." and on and on until you
read the very last chapter of the Ixxftc be
fore Joshua, ever opened nls lips, but when
he did speak be said the grandest thing
mortal man ever said: Chcoe you this dny
whom jou wilt setve. But as for me and my
house, v will serve Gcd.'
Has Been Thankful Thirty Venn.
"When I read these words of Joshua. I
stopped and said, 'Good for Joshua; you arc
the man to say what you did.' When I
waked up morv than thirty years ago and
began to look around me, and see how good
God was to my sainted mother, how good
God was to my noble father, how good he
hail been to me. in spite of mr xin and way
wardness. 1 said to mslf. I.ook here. Sam
Jones, If there Is another man living sr
dead that ouxht to say what Joshua dt-l.
you are the man. Thirty years ano I said
It. and by the grace of God I have been
sticking to It to this hour. I like the run
of the text. There l pure Independent rul
ing and history about It, and I want tn sy
to you that this world craves no ruling o
much as It craves for the r.ced of sol, In
deptndent manhood. We nil know t -oor-s
iind schools, squads and numbers In thU
country, and evidently heard the old saying.
Jur. as well be dead as nut of ihe fisn
lun.' If It Is the faihbn to gamble. 'curse
and drink liquor, you have to curse, gamble
and drink liquor to be a gentleman. But, If
surh Is the casf. I would rather be -i bob
tailed yellow dog than be a centleman. I
am candid when I say to you I would rather
be dead than in the fashion, nnd then, with
God. fight what everbody thinks Is all
right, what a majority of this country do
like, and so I will da that way. too. When
I am In Rome, do ps Rome does. When
in St. Iouls. do as St. LnuU doe. Rut. br

The question is not a thing of desire or

firoposed to be good, we could all b good;
t every man was good who Intended to be
good, we would all be good. But proposi
tion, inclination or desire never made a
man good. It rests alone slmplv upon the
choice of the human wo-ld. When God
comes up through Intelligence to the human
