Mgr. Satolll delivered tlie main address
of tlie occasion, taking for his theme the
great subject and object of learning in tills
now blldlng, the study of philosophy. The
learned prelate dwelt on the fact that the
ralholle Church Is the mother of wisdom
and the nourisher of great universities.
Another iniixirtant reason for uniting the
various ptlences in one school is that this
arrangement makes It possible to co-ordinate
the results of empirical work and
bring them into accord with the more ab
stract principles or philosophy in tL-e
Mrktcr scnseof the term.
The fundamental character of the prob
lems which arc dealt with in this school
implies a close connection between it and
other departments of the university the
schools of divinity, of social science and
of medicine. The training which students
receive is also the best preparation for the
work of teaching lu colleges and schools,
and the most effective means of constantly

MGR. SAT0LLI A REMARKS.
It was tireless to ignore the purposes of
the faculties of this new university c, he
said. They reason that the active, mental
life of to day is only a reproduction of the
Intensity that marked the 12th century.
We say then, beneath the fostering care
of the mother church and her great uni
versities came great minds that tamed and
rode reason to useful service and yoked
Aristotle to the car of Christ.
Not unlike the 12th century is our
own. Now, as then, there is an intense in
tellectual activity, but the direction nnd
(field into which it energizes and reaches
Is somewhat different. The re-adlng of
of nature's secrets; the conquest of nature's
forces, trephytlral as contradistinguished
from the metaphysical sciences, now en
gross the minds of men.
The Catholic Church, he raid, claims
that God, nilrrpred in nature, is the end and
aim of philosophy.

Following Is the text of the letters re
ceived from the various governors:
Little Rock, Ark., Sept. 30. I am heart
ily In favor of annexing Cuba, and am ot
the opinion that steps should be taken
by the United States Government to brlns
about that end.
JAMES P. CLARKE,
Phoenix, Ariz., Sept. 30. Cuba Is Ha
much entitled to her liberty as were the
colonies ot " '76." The exi-esslve taxa
tion and the mlnumum of representation
In the councils of the Spanish kingdom
would seem sufficient It no outer reason
existed. Further, I consider it onip a
matter of time when Cuba will bee-on-e a
State of the American Union.
LOUIS C. HUGHES.
Denver, Col , Sept. 30. Should the United
States assist Cuba? Well, about the only
thing we could do in the matter would be to
recognize the revolutionists as bellig
erents. I certainly think ILcy have earned
that recognition from us, and should have
It. They arc fightlrg for their liberties
Just as this country or.ee had to fight,
and, of course, all tte sympathy of Ameri
cans is with the rev oluiionisis. Beyond
recognizing the right of the bWligc-rents
to rebel, I do cot see ttat this Government
an do more Still, ehat would Le a great
deal for them, and should give the new
government the r'ght to l.avc a represents
live In Washington. Should thw country
recognize theni, other countries might
follow. ALBERT W McINTIRE-
Tallahassee, Fla., SepL 20. I am In
hearty hympathy with Cuba'sftrugglefor
liberty. I think ire United States Uovern-
(jitint tbca!,' j-.cccj:Ue Cola's ciTops to

accord to tte icvohulomeU the rights of

do this when it ncts, if such a step is not
taken berore HENRY L. MITCHELL.
Atlanta, Ga., Se-pt. "o. I am for Cuba.
I should like to see the country free from
Spain and become a State f the Union.
Springfield, 111, Sept. 30. 1 favor tho
annexation of Cuba by the United States.
JOHN P ALTGELB
Indianapolis, led. Stpt. 30. I hesitate
lo express my personal views on the Cuban
question, fearing I may not full under
stand the situation, but with the informa
tion I possess and In View of reported cruel
ties and outrages practised by the Spanish
authorities towards those relielling I lie
lieve the time Is near at hand ami that It
would be Just to recognize the opposing
part as LeUIgcrents. The strcgcl In Cuba
has passed be-yond the stage of insurrec
tion nnd has become a revolution of a
people against the unjust action and tyran
ny of an effete government which, with the
progressive ambition or native Cubans, can
not well longer be tolerated.
Augusta, Me.. Sept. 30. I Lelieve our
government should be no more conserva
tive In the matter of recognzing the
belligerent rlrrhts of the Cuban Insurgents
than Spain was in recognizing the So Jtbcm
Conlesleracy. I believe the symi atlues ot
the American people generally arc with
the insurgents. Cuba has always been
mi-sgov erue-d, and alwavs will be so long
as Spain has control. When the Insurgents
have established a government de facto
there should be no hesitancy on imr part
In recognizing it. The insurgents are con
tending against great odds, and Judging
from prcv ioon revolution, and what wecan
learn of this, they areas thoroughly Imbued
with patriotism as any people who eve.?
struggled to bo free.
UENRY B. CLEAVES.
Lincoln. Nebr.. Sept. 30. The geogra
nhical position otthelslandof Cuba rende-rs
the affairs of its people of more than or
dinary Interest to American cltlze-us by Its
location and commercial Interests. Cuba
belongs lo the Western Hemisphere: for
these rcasoi-s the sympathies ot all Amer
icans are naturally with the Cul.in pc-ople
In their struggle for Indei endence.
The iosition of the Cubans is somewhat
analogous to the struggle of the American
patriots ot 177G. American citizens re
justified in rendering all the assistance
possible to the insurgents not inconsistent
with the neutrality laws or other treaties
existing between this countrv nnd Spain.
E1LAS A. HOLCOMB.
Raleigh, N. C, Sept. 30 I am not pre
pared to express an opinion on Ihe Cuban
question or on the policy of the Govern
ment. I am aware of tlie fact that a ma
jority ot the lx-ople ot North Carolina sym
pathize with the Insurgents, and that there
R a gei.eral hope that the autonomy of
Cuba will be secured. Ttu seizure of
the rtcatrshlp Southport at Wilmington
has developed this feeling.
Bismarck. N. Dale, Sept. 30. The United
States should recognize the Insurgents in
Cuba, and should excrclie a greater euro
over the Islards adjacent lo this country,
'ii ortler that no Injustice be permitted or
foreign nations be given opportunity to
flip in and secure foothold near this conti
nent. I am strongly In Tavor of recogniz
ing tlie Cubans as belligerents.
Albany, Sept 30.
To the Editor or the World.
Gov. Morton does not care to expresjr
an opinion in the matter.
Columbus, Ohio, Sept. 30. I most po
litely dctllne to go en record. As this
time I do not care to speak alioutlt. In
my position it were belter that I say
nothing now. Perhaps later I may havt
something to say.
