There is an evident attempt to dis

THE CATHOLIC CONGRESS.
Monslgnor Satolii Preeente the Fope'e
Greeting- to America.
Chicago, Sept. 6.—"ln the name of Leo
XIIII salute the great American repub
lic, and I call npon the Catholics of
America to go forward, in one hand bear
ing the book of Christian truth, and in
the other the constitution of the United
States," said Papal Delegate Satolii,
wrapping the purple robes ot his office
about him and speaking with a burning
intensity of feeling that surprised the
great multitude gathered in tbe Catholic
congress. The scene was dramatic in
the extreme. Tbe personal representa
tive of the Roman pontiff to the United
States was literally shaking under the
stress of the excitement of the occasion,
which was his firet public appearance at
a national gathering since his appoint
ment to office, and is by many regarded
as his installation into office. All this
occurred after the congress was called to
order by tbe presiding officer, Judge M.
J. O'Brien of New York, who delivered
an address of welcome. Meantime the
papal delegate sat on a lofty throne-like
chair, said to have been brought to
America by Columbus. The papal dele
gate spoke in Italian, which was after
was translated by Archbishop Ireland.
Satolii said the model for this and
every such gathering was when Christ,
surrounded by the children of Israel,
delivered the great Sermon on the
Mount, the burden of which was: "Seek
first the kingdom of Ood and its
righteousness and all other things shall
be added unto you." The delegate said
here in America was the key to the
future, and the pope charged him to
speak words of hope and blessing and
the message qnoted above.
Other addresses were made by Bishop
Watterson of Columbus, 0., cousin of
Hon. Henry Watierßon, of Louisville,
and a number of laymen.
Among those who participated in the
discussion opened by Bishop Watterson,
were Edward Osgood Brown, a single
tax advocate, Judge John Gibbon of
Chicago; Timothy Dwight, of Boston,
and May Thresa Elder, of New Orleans.
An interesting address on the "Cath
olic Summer eehool and Catholic reading
circle" was delivered by Katharine Con
way of Boston.
By special invitation, several repre
sentatives of the colored Catholic con
gress were given seats on the platform.
A Candidate From the Republican Ranks
Selected for Governor.
Deb Moines, la., .Sept. s.—The citi
zens' Prohibition atate convention waa
called to order shortly before noon by
A. P. Lowrey. Only 100 delegates were
present. Dr. Emery Miller waa made
temporary chairman. He said if Gov

the result of the Republican convention
of laat August.Jnot of this. The question
waa to save aa many members of the
legislature as possible for Prohibition. -
Rev. J. D. Wells waa made permanent
At the afternoon session a platform
was adopted. It waa resolved that, as
neither the Republican nor Democratic
party had adopted a satisfactory plat
form respecting the liquor question,
tbat a candidate for governor be
nominated whose views and sentiments
accord with the heretofore expressed
will of the people ot the atate upon the
liquor question. The doctrine of local
option of license, or any other device by
which the aaloon may gain a legalized
existence in lowa, is repudiated in a
moat emphatic manner. It was de
clared that the qneatian o! maintaining
and enforoing the prohibitory law of
the Btate waa regarded aa the para
mount and practically the only iaaue in
volved in the approaching November
election, and they would not be de
ceived or misled by those who should
attempt to divert the attention of the
people from thia question by the dis
cussion of thoae questions over which
the governor and members of the gen
eral assembly elected can exercise no
There were discussions of varioaa
amendments for three hours, but tne
platform was finally adopted aa above
outlined. One member of tbe commit
tee on resolutions. Dawson of Washing
ton county, repudiated them, saying he
was a Republican.
The convention then proceeded to
nominate a candidate for governor and
L. S. Coffin, ex-state railroad commis
sioner was unanimously chosen. An
attempt was made tonight to reach him,
he being at present in the eaat, but he
has not yet been found. The Republi
cans believe he will not accept. The
convention made no other nominations.

By the Associated Press.
Washington, Sept. s.—Silver men in
he senate today sprung a surprise on
the repeal forcea in the declaration of
Stewart that hereafter a quorum of the
aenate would have to be present when
senators spoke upon the silver question.
If the opponenta of repeal inaiat upon a
quorum being present at all times, it
will be a new move and may seriously
interfere with the programme of the
friends of repeal. Substantially the
entire day in the senate waa consumed
by Stewart (Rep.), of Nevada, who took
poaitive ground againat tbe repeal of
the Sherman aot until silver was re
monetized. The vote of the aenate to
proceed to consideration of executive
business after Stewart's apeech waa tha
firet set-back the repeal men have thua
far auatained in the eenate.
Peffer introduced a bill creating a de
partment of education under the super
vision of a aecretary of education, who
within three yeara after the passage of
the act shall cauee to be constructed a
college of scientific learning, in which
shall be taught all classic and profes
sional atudies, art, etc., to be known as
the Scientific University of the Bed,
White and Blue Cross. The bill appro
priates $10,000,030 to construct the
college, and $8,000,000 more ia appro
priated to create an endowment to be
known aa the Scientific College fund.
The aecretary of the treasury ia directed
to purchaee aluminium to the total
amount of the appropriationa and coin
in denominations of 1 cent to $20.
Voorheee submitted a resolution for

rent resolution for the appointment of a
joint select committee on finance of
seven members of each bouse tv exam

condition of tbe government and the

for ita betterment. Ita powers are very
wide, including the question of the re
monetization of silver, its ratio with

Peffer took the floor and concluded
hia remarks in oppoeition to repeal.
STEWART BEGINS HIS SPEECH.
Stewart of Nevada followed in opposi
tion to repeal. He said in 1867 the
mints of tbe continent of' Europe and
those in the United States were open to
free coinage of silver. He then recited '
the events leading up to the demonetisa
tion of silver in 1873. Sherman, he
said, introduced a bill prepared by a
clique in tho treasury department,
beaded by John Jay Knox, professedly
to revise and codify the mint laws, bnt
which in reality omitted the standard
dollar from the list of coins. After two
days' debate tha bill, which had been re
ported by Sherman from the finance
committee passed, Sherman, be said,
voting in the negative. Sherman very
well knew, said Stewart, before his name
was reached in tbe calling of the roll
that the bill would pass by an over
whelming majority. The history of the
bill in the house of representatives ia
suggestive. After it was developed that
the bill demonetized silver, Hooper
of Massachusetts, in charge of
the bill, affected to abandon it.
Some days after, in tbe absence of Rep
resentative Potter of New York, who
had discovered the fact that the bill de

substitute for the bill, which he falsely
claimed contained none of tbe objec

void of the objectionable features of the
original bill. Ihe substitute as it oame

tbat time reported the house substitute
from tbe finance committee with a sub
stitute for section 16 which contained
the trade dollar of 420 grains.
