A distinguished audience witnessed the

by twenty-one nations which are at
peace with ono another. The Secretary

"An unusual and remarkable sermon,"
was the characterization given by somo
to the frahk utterances of the bishop of
Wheeling, who spoke one moment of the
blessings of the Creator and the next
warned against "those who would dis
turb the nation's prosperity."
The bishop called no names directly,
but his Inferences Were plain.
"Unlike other nations on this day,
erv?n at .this moment," he said, "we
are not afraid of the midnight attack
of soldiery ,- the bursting of shells and
the slaughter and horrors of war.
Thanks to our Creator we have not
only plenty but we have peace, that
Inestimable gift without which all other
blessings would be In vain."
Bishop Donohue expressed the hope
that when the Panama canal Is com

the Pacific "and the Atlantic may mean
also the mingling In closer relationship
of the Latin-American republics."

Secretary of State Knox has made It
plain that Shuster must stand or fall

in him beyond the fact that he is an
American citizen, entitled to a guaran

W. Morgan Shuster
Must Quit Persia
LONDON, Nov. 30,-That W. Morgan
Shuster, tho Shah's American treasurer
general, will have to leave Persia for
doing hlB work too well to suit Russia
is the belief In official circles here to
day. The Persian Government was still re
sisting the Czar's demands for Bhuster's
dismissal, according to last advises
from. Teheran, but unless England
comes -to the Shah's aid, the latter will
havo to yield. Since there Is no doubt
England' is In the plot to grab the south
ern half of Persia when Russia grabs
the northern half, there Is no likelihood
England will support tho American.
It Is generally agreed that If Shuster
wer allowed to ro-organlze Persia's
finances, he would deprive England and
Russia of their excuse for a grab.
Foreign Minister Sir Edward Grey
told the house of commons this after
noon that England did not support
Shunter's appointment of Europeans to
government posts In 'northern Persia,
which Is one of the grounds of the Rus
sian objection to htm, because It con
sidered such appointment Inconsistent
with the Anglo-Russian agreement con
vernlng Persia. He admitted that the
Czar's latest demands upon Persia may
have serious consequences. That Eng
land and the United States are nego
tiating with a view to supporting Shus
ter Jointly he denied.
