In the house. Peel of Arkansas asked that
a provisi m for an allowance of $1,000 to
Captain Pratt, in charge of tbe Indian
rchools at Carlisle, Pa., be passed over.
Monday charges had leen made that Cap- i
tain Pratt had criticised Roman Catholic ,
methods and said there was a Koman
Catholic lobby at this city, and Peel
wanted to give the captain time to refute
these charges. The matter came up again
when Wilson of Washington sent to the
clerk's desk and had read a telegram from
Captain Pratt stating that his remarks
were that Roman Catholics got more than
double as much of the Indian school ap
propriation as all other denominations
combined. That they maintained a pow
erful lobby in Washington and manipu
lated politics to accomplish their purposes.
His statements were general and had no
reference to members of congress.

Stockdale of Mississippi said that if it
were true that the Koman Catholics had a
powerful lobby here the congress of the
United States was disgraced before the
people of the civilized world. If legisla

Catholic or any other church the house of
representatives stood defamed. Captain
I'ratt was on the skirmish line in a re
ligious fight. Individually he had aright
to express his own opinions on religious
matters, but as an officer of the govern
ment he had not this right. The clause
appropriating 1,000 as an allowance to
Captain I'ratt was then stricken out.

Sioux Falls, S. D., March 2. Mrs.
James G. Blaine, Jr., late last evening
furnished a letter to the press in answer tc
to the personal statement of Secretary
Blaine. The purpose of the letter is to de
mand of the seuior Blaine the publication
of all the letters in his possession or his
son's from her. When this is done Mrs.
James G. Blaine, Jr., says she will give to
the public a complete narrative account of
her career as wife of the youngest son of the
secretary of state. She has in her posses
sion all the letters and documents which
6he claims prove the story of her suffering
as the public has understood it for the
past year or two.
Calls It a "Ueuiarkable Production."
The text of Mrs. Nevins-Blaiiie's U tter
as follows: .
"My UeauSir: You have furnished the
public with a remarkable production un
der the caption of "A Personal Statement "
I consider it my duty at this time toad-
dress you with that degree of dignity

titles you to. I acknowledge your well
rendered, richly deserved fame as a diplo
mat, and appreciate fully the weight
which your utterances possess; as fully as
do I appreciate my own weakness and my
total inability to cope with you in a per
sonal encounter. But I shall" expect from
you that considerate and honorable treat
ment w hich I am sure your keen sense of
equity and fairness will dictate.

surely can lll-aiTbrd to withhold it. I w ish
it distinctly understood by you that I am
not asking sympathy. I respectfully de
mand justice, it is in your power to grant
tins simple request. It remains to be
seen II you will do it. I will aid you by
a SUizirestion. Hxve Hi. L irwlndd in

from. Do not, like a shrewd and unprin
cipled person, (-elect only such riaL'es as
may be neede 1 to make out a case, but
give the entire contents to the public, that

f.ive the Secretary Ten Days.
'You have the documents, surely, else
you could not quote from them. I will give
you sufficient time in which to conform to
my reasonable demand, say ten days. If
at the end of that time you fail to respond
I shall dtem it my duty to give in sub-
ance their contents and corroborate ui
statement by publishing letters from your
son, both prior and subsequent toour mar
riage. You know full well that your
charges against me regarding the marriage
are unfounded. I give you amph- .ppor
t unity to retract. You have two alterna
tives the one suggested or silence.
For the Sake of His Ornndson.
' Vutir consideiation for your grandson
will surely induce you to decide in favor
of the fust. This is not a proposed diplo
matic engagement on my part, for your
succes in dealing with powerful nations

any other ground than as the mother of
your grandson. 1 take it that your state

"I have no defense to offer in his behalf;
I simply demand, now that you have ar
raigned me by the use of fragmentary
quotations from my love letters to your

originals in full. I will then prove to the
world that your son was far from a

well knew it long before he married me.

Blaine for writing as he did. It was
