A rclibWhoiItynnM Lively Comment.
Next Meeting October 2, 1600.
Tbe momentous question now before tho
public concerning tbe political organiza
tion of tbe prelate? and members or the
Roman. Catholic Church received an au
thoritative denial yesterday from the
great head of tbe American cuurili. Car
A Times reporter had an Interview in the
moruiug with the Cardinal in his private
room on the lecoud floor and Just above
tbem.ilu entrance of McMahon Hall. The
apartment is a statelr one. furni'lied in
rltli, dark leather and Turkish hangings.
Here the Cardinal, ilolhcd In his crimson
silk cassock, was, seated iu a large arm
chair Just before a western winuovv that
comnuud-, a magnificent view of the Sol
The Cardinal raid. "The subject of a
political organization to be formed by
the officials aLd members of our church
was not dlFCiscd at our meeting yester
day. It is contrary to all established rules
aid precedents to entertain such an idea,
still less to form plans for a course of action.
"Tbe Catholic Church las always held
itself aloof from all political entangle
ments Its great mission is to teach .and
direct in things epiritual. With temporal
affairs It never Interferes."
LEFT TO LAYMEN.
"The laymen of Hie church arc free to
form mch societies as may tend to pre mote
their temporal welfare, but to expect the
archbishops and bishops formally to ap
prove or to ratify such plans Is to expect
whatcan never come to pass."
In regard to the Indian Bureau tbe cardi
nal said that the new commissioners, con
sisting of himself. Archbishop Corrlgan, of
New York, and Archbishop Ityan, ot Phila
delphia, had held their first meeting last
night, and that the director general ot the
bureau, Mgr. Stcphan, had been present.
The transfer bad been made from the old
commlsslorcrs, ArchbUhop Iteardon.of San
Francisco, and Bishop Marty, of South Da
kota, to the present board.
In reply to the direct question, "Will
Mgr. Stephan still temaln in charge of Hie
bjreau?" tbe cardinal answered Immedi
ately. "Most assuredly, Mgr. Stephan will re
main the director. He has spent a long life
iu this good work, his management has been
Judicious nndtils Integrity and executive
Replying to a further question about tbe
attitude of the bureau toward the present
administration. Cardinal Gibbons said:
HAVE NO GRIEVANCE.
"We have no grievance wbaleveragalnst
this government. It has long been known
to us that the appropriations would at the
end of a specified time be entirely with
drawn from our Catholic missions. We
have been given opportunity to provide for
tbh contingency, and we will now take
active steps In making all our schools
Tho cardinal iaid further that the arch
bishops and bishops would never make a
united petition to Congress, no matter how
grave the circunistnnces or bow grievous
the complaint. If the Catholic Church had
reason to believe that its rights were
Infringed upon, or its members unfalrly
treated. It would simply ask for justice as
citizens ot tho United States; they would
never demand satisfaction as a body of
powerful prelates supported by millions
of voters. Such action would be coutrary
to their high prerogative of the exponents
otthegreat teacher ot charity and humility.
In concluding his interview, the cardinal
expressed great satisfaction at the mag
nificent inaugural of McMabon 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 olt-repeated question, "Are.
women to be admitted for Its degrees?"
the great dignitary laughingly replied:
Our board bad not held a meeting for
eighteen months, and we had 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 ladles so greatly. When we
meet In the spring we hope to remedy
t bis oversight. In the meantime, tell the
ladles to study diligently in order to be
ready for the golden opportunity."
THE CARDINAL'S PERSONALITY.
Cardinal Gibbons is remarkably gentle
him he extends the same dignified, cordial
welcome, and at all times, and under the
most trying circumstances, he Is accessible,
patient and satisfactory.
Another member of the Indian bureau.
Archbishop Ryan, of Philadelphia, said
that Mgr. Stcphat would undoubtedly re
main in charge uf Its affairs as long as he
desired to hold the position. He spoke very
warmly of the monsignor's work in this
field, and said that his mistakes, If sncli his
late utterances could be termed, were only
Uio mistakes of overzeal. He had devoti-d
his life to these missions, his only thought,
his only hope, were bound up in thclrsuccess,
consequently he attached nndae importance
to al! that concerned them. The political
part of Mgr. Stephan's report had not been
discussed at their meeting, and there jvas
no reason tint tj t should ha ve been mentioned.
The attitude of the Catholic Church has
always been strongly defined. Politics
never enters Into their rcligfous meetings
or discussions- The Indian bureau will
conduct no political war.
THEIR, WORK AT AN KSn.
Archbishop Kain, of St. Louis, ex
pressed some lively opinions on the ub
Ject. He said that Catholics T-culd scarcely
care to imitate certain other quasl-re-lhrious
organizations that band together
