Certain of ihe members honestly regarded
this as an Injustice to suc-h of the citizens
of Dallas as had spent large sums In anti

Hint reason alone. Their arguments were
not effective, however, and the vote In the

In the senate the bill was carried wltb

The Head of tho American Church
, Talks Freely to Tlie Times About
the Imiwsslbllify of Such a Move-
-liicnt Father Stephan't, Wvrk
The momentous question now before the
public concenilng the political organiza
tion of the prelates and niexnbcrs of the
Roman Catholic Church received an au
thoritative denial this morning from the
great head of the American church. Car
A Times reporter had an iutervicw this
morning with the Cardinal in his private
room on the tecuud floor and Just above
the main entrance of McMahon Hall. The
apartment is -a stately one, furnished In
rich, dark leather and Turkish hangings.
Here the Cardinal, clothed In bis crimson
silk cassock, was seated in a large arm
chair Juft before a western window tbat
comnSands a inaguifieent view of the Sol
The Cardinal said: "The subject of a
political organization to be formed by
the olflcials aid members ot our church
was. not discussed at our meeting yester
day. It is contrary to all established rules
and precedents to entertain such an idea,
still less to form plans fora course of action.
"The Catholic Church has always held
Itself aloof from all political entangle
ments. Its great mission is to teach and
direct in things spiritual. With temporal
affairs it never Interferes."
LEFT TO LATMEN.
"The laymen of the church are free to
form such societies as may tend to promote
their temporal welfare, but to expect the
arcbbifhops and bishops formally to ap
prove or to ratify such plans is to expect
what can never come to pass "
In regard to the Indian Bureau the cardi
nal said that the new commissioners, con
sisting of himself. Archbishop Corrigan, of
New York, and Archbishop Ryan, of Phila
delphia, had held their first meeting, last
night, and that the director general or the
bureau, Mgr. Stephan, had been present.
The transfer had been made from the old
commissioners. Archbishop Reardon, of San
Francisco, and Bishop Marty, of South Da
kota, to the present board.
In reply to the direct question, "Will
Mgr. Stephan still remain in charge of the
bureau?" the cardinal answered immedi
ately. "Most assuredly, Mr. Stephan will re
main the director.lle has spent a long life
inthisgood work, his managementhas been
judicious and bis integrity and executive
Replying to a further question about the
attitude of the bureau toward the present
administration. Cardinal Gibbons said:
HAVE NOG RIEYANCF .
"We have no grievance whatever against
this government. It has long been known
to us that the appropriations would at the
end ot a specified time be entirely with
drawn from our Catholic missions. We
have been given opportunity to provide for
this contingency, and we will now take
active steps in making all our schools
The cardinal said further that the arch
bishops and bishops woald never make a
united petition to Congress, no matter how
grave the circumstances or how grievous
the complaint. If the Catholic Church had
reason to believe that its rights were
Infringed upon, or its members nnfably
treated. It would bimply ask for justice as
citizens or tho United Stales; they would
never demand satisfaction as a body ot
powerful prelates supported by millions
ot voters. Such action would be contrary
to their high prerogative of the exponents
of thegreat teacher ot charity and humility.
In concluding bis interview, the cardinal
expressed great satisfaction at the mag
nificent inaugural of McMahon Hall, and
said that the Catholics of Washington
had cause for true rejoicing that such a
monument of learning and munificence
should have arisen in their midst. An
swering the oft-repeated question. "Are
women to be admitted for Its degrees?"
the great dignitary laughingly replied:
Our board had not held a meeting for
eighteen months, and we bad such a quan
tity of grave and important business to
transact that we did not get around to this
question, which seems to be agitating the
Washington ladies so greatly. When we
meet in the spring we hope to remedy
this oversight. In the meantime, tell the
