FRENCH ATTITUDE NOW EXPLAINED A Cabinet Minister Says That the Catholic Church is Not In a Revolt: THE POLICY APPROVED THE CHURCHES, AS STATE AND COMMUNAL PROPERTY, WILL REMAIN OPEN FOR CATHOLIC WORSHIP OTHER DETAILS. tPubllshers Press! Paris. Not. 3. The minister of pub lic instruction and worship, M. Briand, announced that thV gOYernment did not regard the Catholic church as be ing in revolt against the law providing' for the separation of the church, and etate, or against the state. The Cath olic church having. sim ply declined to take advantage of its privilege under the law, as tEe other religions did. on December 11, would forfeit its $80,-' 000,000 of property and : thereafter would live under the common . law. There would be neither martyrdom nor persecutions of the faithfuL The churches, as state and' communal property, would remain open for Cath olic worship. The object for which the Republican party in France, had struggled for 30 years, the minister . said, had been achieved. The concor dat was at an end, the state would no longer contribute to the support of any religion and priests would no longer enjoy privileges. In both their duties and obligations they would be on an equality with other citizens. In , other words, the state was at least neutral towards all religions and would permit the exercise of all of them with special favors to none. The cabinet held a meeting under the presidency of President Fallieres and approved the ministerial declara tion of policy. The president then signed the bills to be introduced at the reassembling of. parliament for the purchase of the W estern railroad ana the abolition of the death penalty. MM. Bourgeois, Constant, Renault and Decsais have been reappointed as rep resentatives of France at The Hague tribunal for the coming six years.

The authorities state that they are absolutely without a clue and an nounced that another highway rob bery occurred within a block of the McMillen tragedy. - Edward Young, a driver, was held up by three, men, who after beating him Into unconscious ness, took $50. The mystery was in creased when the detectives'. learned that two well dressed men had called at the morgue to examine McMillen's effects. They said they were attor neys and asked if any legal papers had been found on the body, adding that they were needed in important litigation. They refused to give their names and the authorities are now trying to locate them. A post-mortem examination has shown that McMillen was knocked unconscious and died of exposure.

Richmond Christian Scientists, and their number has constantly been increasing during the past few years, are in receipt of official communica tion from Boston, relative to the stories recently exploited concerning the alleged illness of Mrs. Eddy, the founder of the Church of Christian Science. The Richmond followers of Mrs. Eddy af e active in their efforts to see that.the stories told regarding their leader are denied. The official communication received by the local members of the church is as fol lows: j Boston, Mass., Nov. 3. Alfred Far low, head of the Christian Science propaganda in this city, denies the declaration of the New York Sunday World that Mrs. Eddy is at death's . door, suffering from a cancer; that she was.Moped and galvanized" for identificaton last week; that she and 1 the $15,000,000 she is said to possess' are wholly dominated by her secre- tary, Calvin Frye; that Mrs. Pamelia0 J. Leonard of Brooklyn, N. Y., dresses in the ermine and velvet of Mrs Eddy and impersonates her on the daily exhibiton drive through Con cord street, and that a Boston special 1st is constantly in attendance at the Eddy home. After a two hours talk over the telephone with Concord, N. H. the Boston conferrees, headed by Alfred Farlow, issued, at 11:30 o'clock Sun day night, the statements which fol low; A statement which originated in the New York World has gone the round of the public press to the ef feet that the leader of the Christian Scientists, the Rev. Mary Baker Ed dy, by reason of afflictions, is unable to leave her home, and is, therefore being impersonated by Mrs. Pamelia . J. Leonard of New York City. It is probable that the public has become so used to the periodical circulation of stories dealing wth Mrs. , Eddy's health that they may not consider the mseriously. But the boldness with which it is being circulated at this period, and the pretence of evi dence in its support, demands an emphatic denial. Mayor Coming's Statement. The Hon. Charles A. Corning, May or of Concord, made the following statement today: "I have known Mrs. Edc7' by sight for many years, and have seen her in her carriage many times, and within the past season Mrs. Eddy has passed up Pleasant street and down Green street daily, and I know that the sole occupant of the carriage has been Mrs. Eddy. I had never met Mrs. Eddy face to face at her resi dence, Pleasant View, until today. Mrs. Eddy received me this afternoon in company with General Frank S. Streeter, who is and has been an at torney of Mrs. Eddy for several years. As I. had heard so much concerning the precarious condition of Mrs. Ed dy's health, I feared that there might be some foundation for such reports, but the fact was utterly different. I spoke to Mrs. Eddy, and I listened for nearly half an hour to her conver- ; sation. She is keen of Intellect and strong in memory. She Is a surpris ing illustration of longevtiy, bright eyes and emphatic expression and of an alertness rarely to be encounter ed in a person so venerable. Signed.) Charles R.
