Chicago, 111.. Oct. 17. Inaccordanccwith
Instructions from Pope Leo, submitted
through ilgr. Satolli, a decree will shortly
be Issued by the archbishops ortlie country
Informing Catliolics that tlicy are out to
take part In the religious congresses.
The letter to laity is couched In the
most Inoffensive tennis, but the Instruc
tions to the priest, who will direct, the
congregations, will be more explicit.
The letter Is looked upon by prominent
Catholics as a direct blow at the policy of
Cardinal Gibbons and Archbishop Ireland,
who not only were most prominent in tho
congress of religions, but who openly urge
the holding of such congresses.
TEXT OF THE LETTER: -
The document Is written in Latin and
addressed to Mgr. Batulll. It reads as fol
lows: "Venerable brother health and apostolic
"We have learned that In the United
States of America conventions are some
times held in which people assemble pro
miscuously. Catholics as welt as those of
other denominations, to treat upon re
ligion as well as upon correct morals. In
this we recognize the desire for religious
things by which this people is animated
more zealously from day to day.
"But although Jbesc promiscuous conven
tions ha e unto this day been tolerated with
prudent silence, it would nevertheless seem
advisable that the Catholics should hold
their conventions separately J and that lest
the utility of these conventions should re

be called with this understanding that ad
mittance should be open to all, also to
thooe who are outside of lb e Ca lliollc church.
PAULIST FATHEUS COMMENDED.
"Whilst we consider it incumbent upon
our apostolic office, venerable brother,
to bring this to your attention, we are also

explain Catholic doctrine and to answer
any objections presented against such
"If every bishop In his own diocese will
promote this practice and a frequent

pleasing and acceptable to ns, for we are
confident that not a small benefit for the
