outburst of personal vituperation, accentuate-1
by acrobatic attitudes, gesticulations and fisti
cuffs. The vote of the Chamber on the eve of
Ascension Day Is of great significance. After
I?ot debates, which lasted until nearly midnight,
the Chamber had to choose between two orders
cf the day, each concluding with an expression
of confidence in the Cabinet. Ore was for
jr.ul«ted by M. Hubbard, the leader of the
group of Jlauica.l Socialists, and enjoined the
povernmtnt to undertake the separation of
church ar.d state: the other, drawn up by M.
Etienne. president of the group of Democratic
t'sionlsls. called upon the Cabinet to repel
Clerical encroachments, and also to defend lib

Cence. which presented the first occasion for an
expression by vote of the opinion of the Cham

rejected by 205 votes against 240, but in thlt bal

cp.=!<e and M. Pell^tan, and Liberal Republicans
such as M. Estcurnelles de Constant. Siegfried
dv Jardln, Beametz and others who. when the
question comes up. forcing them to take sides
for or against the concordat, would undoubted
ly vote for its abolition and the consequent
separation of church and state. Consequently,
one result of the religious Interpellations was to
give M. Combes's Cabinet a carte blanche au
thority to attack the concordat whenever it
deems flt.
Meanwhile, the Etlenne vote of confidence
■was carried by the large majority of 305
against 231, indicating that ths Chamber
approved the energetic manner In which M.
Combes has been carrying out the laws against
Roman Catholic associations, but at the same
time it wished M. Combes to Insure liberty of
worship inside all churches, temples or build-
Ings, no matter what religious faith the wor
shippers may profess, whether Evangelist.
Israelite. Free Thinker, Buddhist or Roman
Catholic. This resolution, having the true
ring of religious freedom about it. such as relig
ious liberty is understood in the United States,
was a rebuke for the extreme Socialists and
professional anti-Clericals, and gives the true
trend of public opinion In Francs in regard to
the coming war between Clericals and Republi
cans.
The vote has had a salutary effect through
out the country, especially In Paris, where the
anti-Clerical demonstrations and riots ar
ranged for Ascension Day were Indefinitely
postponed, a step which It must be confessed
vas slso partly due to the Ideal sprlnr weather.
This proved too strong a temptation to Pari
sians little Inclined to sacrifice their holiday to
demonstrating In the hot. dusty streets of the
city Instead of making merry and picnicking
in their favorite suburban groves and rustic
restaurants.
Paris Is fnirly captured by automobiles. The
glorious summer weather, the temperature of 2S
Centigrade, corresponding to 82% degrees
Fahrenheit; the blazing Spanish sun and the
hard but dusty roads are most propitious for the
grand Paris-Madrid automobile race of 1,3-2
kilometres, or B*Jl»4 miles, which begins at Ver
sailles to-morrow morning at 8:30 o'clock and
ends at Madrid. Two American tourists, the
Baruch brothers, arrived In Madrid yesterday,
having driven all the way from Paris to the
Spanish capital in f helr automobile over the
road i'j escribed for the race, which they report
to be in excellent condition, except for a few
miles between Biarritz and St. Sebastien. Con
sequently, the experts at the French Automobile
Club estimate that the winner In the coming
race will accomplish the distance of 621^ miles
between Versailles and Madrid in between six
teen and seventeen hours; that Is, five and a
half hours from Versailles to Bordeaux, five and
a half hours from Bordeaux to Vlttoria and five
and a half hours from Vittoria to Madrid. This
automobile race is considered the moet for
midable yet organized. There are 315 entries,
and the actual etarters probably will be 250.
Arrong the Americans who yesterday were
weighed with their machines ar.d duly provided
with dnving certificates, and who have complied
with the numerous formalities of the contest, are
William K. Vandert>'.lt. Jr.. who drives a Mors
motor; Foxhall Keene. who drives a Mercedes
motor; William Dannat, who drives a Mercedes
motor; Mr. Terry, who drives a Mercedes motor,
and the Jockey "Tod" Sloans, who drives a
Richard Erszier motor. To-morrow during the
whole day the road al! the way between Ver
sailles and the Spanish frontier will be abso
lutely monopolised by motor car racers. AH
pubUG traffic will be suspended, and th« gen
darmes, the rural police, the firemen and the
forest guards will be mobilized, as If in time of
war, to keep the Versailles-Madrid-Biarritz road
Just es clear as a racecourse during the running
of the Grand Prix.
It being- Sunday and a fete day, the inhabi
tants along the gigantic racetrack take the mat
ter good naturedly as a holiday festival and as
an amusing spectacle. There are, however, some
surly growl 6 heard, and testy queries as to the
right of automobile amateurs and professionals
to take exclusive possession of the national
highway for a whole day. In several quarters it
is predicted that this will be the last great
automobile race that the government will allow
to take place over public thoroughfares. The
accidents so far are very few, not more than
half a dozen yet recorded, and none of them
fatal. Meanwhile the Champs Elyetes and the
Boi* de Boulogne teem with automobiles, pro
ceeding to or from the weighing posts In the
Tulleries Garden or taking preliminary spurts,
and before the contest, notwithstanding the
hourly watering of the wooden pavements, there
are already clouds of fine dust, and the whole
atmosphere of the Paris streets Is redolent with
the fumes of petroleum gas and the diabolical
sounds of "Teuf, t<ruf!" and bang, whirr and
whiz that deafen Parisian ears.
The Pnrls society season this year will end
sooner than ever before, the reasons being that
the great ladies of the Faubourg are sulky about
the expulsion of the relielous associations. The
Grand Prix de Paris, the habitual signal for de
parture for the country, will be run earlier than
hitherto, and now the hot cummer weather is
already enticing people to cool watering places.
Nevertheless. Paris Is brimful of Americans,
and at the charity garden party given this
afternoon by the Comtesse de Gournay In her
beautiful mansion, in the Rue de Varennes, with
terraces and lawns Just like a country seat, I
noticed Mr. and Mrs. 'William K. Vanderbilt,
the Baroness Seilliere and her daughter. Miss
Livermore, Mrs. Lee Child, Mrs. Charles Yerkes.
Mr. and Mrs. L. B. Chase and Mrs. Scott Grant.
Mr. and Mrs. William X- Vanderbiit, havMns
passed their honeymoon at St. Louis de Poissy,
make frequent visits to Paris, and have bought
a superb house at the corner of the Rue Leo
r.ardo fia Vinci and the Rue Leroux. commanding
a fine view of the Avenue dv Bois de Boulogne.
This sumptuous Paris residence of Mr. Vander
bilt Is being beautifully decorated In the in
terior with frescos and rare tapestry, and the
■tabling and gardens are being put Into perfect
order. The Duchess of Marlborough, in excel

in Paris. Mr. and Mrs. Cavendish Bentinck
have Just returned to London. Mrs. Brockholst
NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. SUNDAY. MAY 24. 1903.
Cuttlns and Mr. William Cutting have started
for Homburg: so. also, has Joseph Pulitzer. A
series of elaborate dinners and theatrical and
musical entertainments have been given by Mr.
and Mrs. Harris Phelps in their new mansion, lr.
the Rue de Presburg. facing the Arc de Tri
omphe. formerly the residence of the late King
and Queen of Hanover. Among Mr. and Mrs.
Pbelps's guests at a dinner yesterday were the
ambassadors of Italy. Turkey and Japan, the
Princesse Jeanne Bonaparte, the Princesse MSTSB
Gortchakoff and Mme. Adam. A young French
man of Portuguese depcent, Leon Carlos Salzedo,
eighteen years old, who in 1901 took the drat
prizes at the French Conservator!' of Music for
both piano and harp, has won the musical car of
fashionable Paris, and his piano and harp reci
tations, executed with rare technical skill and
sentiment, especially in the Hungarian rhapso
dies of Liszt, are keenly appreciated here.
Quite a flutter around the tea tables of Amer
ican residents has been caused by a romantic
love tale and a timely inheritance for the hero,
who is a good looking and intelligent English
man, only twenty-one years old. He Is a painter
of merit, and has for the last three years been
earning his living at Paris as sub-editor of "The
English and American Gazette." He is at pres
ent the correspondent of "The Fall Mall Ga
zette." The name of the lucky youtli Is Louis
Foumier. He did occasional work for The
Tribune, and recently became engaged to an
exceedingly attractive young woman, eighteen
years old. Mile, de Majendle. who Is a talented
eculptor. A few days ago Louis Fournler'B
happiness was completed by a windfall In the
shape of a fortune estimated at $6,000,000. left
to him unexpectedly by his friend Harold Bar
ker, of Sydney, Australia, whose acquaintance
young Fournler made casually in Switzerland.
Barker wished to buy a portrait of Sarah Bern
hardt which Foumier had Just completed, but
was forestalled by the Comtesse de Majendle,
the mother of his fiancte. I had a pleasant
chat wtth Mr. Foumier laft evening at the din
ner table of a common friend, a young New-York
artist. William Horton. at the Hotel Regina-
The young journalist said that when the news
of the legacy reached him he had spent the last
franc of his week's salary, and was about to
borrow a few dollars from a friend to make a
trip to Trouville to see Mile. Majendie. who is
staying there with her mother. Mr. Barker,
who has left to him the fortune, was only thirty
five years old when he died last week at Rennes
from typhoid lever. Mr. Foamier intends to
stick to his double barrelled profession of news
paper man and artist. He shows no Fisns of
losing his head by his sudden stroke of fortune,
and has completed arrangements for his v,ed
dlng with Mile. Elise de Majendie In Novem
ber. Mr. Fournler showed me a substantial
check forwarded to him as an advance by the
London solicitor of the Parker estate, and he
has taken a modest little country house near
Montlgny. in Fontalnebleau Forest, to pass the
summer months In reel and quiet. He is a
bright, witty, sensible youth, and all his friends
are delighted at his pocd luck. C. I. B.

HAWAIIAN LEGISLATION IMPERILLED.
Its Constitutionality Assailed on Ground of
Use of Native Language.
Honolulu. May 2-".— A serious question. Involving
the validity of all legislation enacted In the Ha
waiian Islands since ISCO. has been brought to light
by the Superintendent of Public Works, Henry E.
Cooper, v. ho refuses to act under tho regulations
of the recently adopted County Government law.
on the ground that the act was unconstitutional.
Coopr alleges that the act is invalidated by the
fact that the legislature permitted tho use of the
Hawaiian language In Its deliberations, which
Coop«r BOlda was prohibited by Congress in tho
Territorial Government act. At tho recent session
of the legislature the question of allowing the Ha
waiian language to be spoken was bitterly fought,
and it was only alter the threat of the natives to
block all legislation that the white contingent in
the legislature agreed to permit the native tongue
to b» Broken.
Private parties have demanded that the govern
ment Bue the Brewer company for $140,000 for an
alleged violation of the United States Contract
Labor law. It is alleged that the company Induced
140 Coreans to Immigrate to the Hawaiian Islands
under contract to work on various plantations.
The Bederal officer* have learned that the agent
ser.t to Cor^a last year to enKP.pe laborers had the
treasury Instructions Issued under an old law, which
has since been abrogated. The government, there
fore, has decided that the Brewer company is not
liable for an infraction of the law.

Prince Henry's noble conduct at Cavlte. when
he gave eloquent proof of his sympathy and af
fection for Spain at a moment when the coun

THE FAMINE IN KWANG-SI PROVINCE.
Consul General McWade Sends Another
i
Urgent Appeal for Help.
j Washington. May 23.— United States Consul Gen

j sent to the State Department a detailed report of
j the famine conditions In Kwang-sl in support of
i his cabled appeal for help. He produces a mass of
Information, which he declares to be trustworthy,
from American missionary and native sources,
i showing the destitution and the consequent suffer
j Ing, which the consul general says are absoluteiy
I appalling. He eaya that the hoads of the families
j in their desperation were selling their children for
| from 92 to $5 each, yet so many were tho offerings
i and so few the purchases that not all could be sold
| even at this price. Mr. Ale Wade says that so heart
j rending were the appeals for aid that he had con
} tributed far beyond bin means, and would have
! given more li lie had the money. When the report
j was written, the famine was increasing greatly in
i severity, and thoM?ar.ds were starving to death. In
i one village two hundred people perished from
j starvation, and he said that unless relief came soon
j thouynnds and thousands would starve. Whole
j families were subsisting on a few ounces of rW a
: day and eating herbs and leaves. Unltss the rlea
( and other crops 'jf July, August and September
j proved plentiful, the famine would be only slightly
i alleviated. In conclusion Mr. McWade says:
The natives Teel that the Americans hart come

Mcßride (formerly Maud Gonne) at the meeting
of citizens held in the Dublin Rotunda on Monday

It seems that only the fact that my wife is a lady

occupying three columns. Dr. Tristram, chan
cellor of the LondoT diocepe, to-day defends bis
action in granting the lit-Kutherfurd
marriage license by law and custom. Dr. Tris
tram contends that he was obliged to grant Mr.
Vandervilfs application. The chancellor's an
swer to the Bishop of London's severe criticism
forir.s the text for a long editorial in "The
Times," which says Dr. Trlstram'a argument
opens up an important controversy between
church and state. "The Tlme3" maintains that
the Rev. R. H. Hadden's act in marrying Mr.
Vanderbilt and Mrs. Rutherfurd was due solely
to an error of judgment, which It hopes will not
be copied by others of the English clergy, and
deprecates the "heavy moral censure which
seeir.ed to be implied by the Bishop of London's
language. 1 "The Times" upholds Dr. T.-!.
tram's contention that he had no right to Inter
fere in a matter so dubious, on which the
House of Lords and the House of Commons had
themselves legislated In direct contradiction of
each other. The editorial continues:
It would seem a great hardship that by the
sole fault of the guilty party an innocent per
son should be placed during the lifetime of that
partner under one of UM greatest and most try
ing disabilities that con be Inflicted— a disability
which n.ay involve the greatest temptation, and
where Christian opinion has teen and Is clearly
divided. Even clergymen owe some deference
to tha laws of th*!r country, and still more to
the moral sense of Justice in the community.

Th» mystery cf this market 13 tb© seTiras; cf
St. Paul. More than any other stock on tho list,
the liquidation i-i this la the most talked of aa«
the most speculate'! about. Also. it may b<s
added, It has h id a mere demoralizing effect en
the list than ary other one thing. Who» tfcs
market had its sharp, rally on Thursday. It was
the fresh outburst of s»-:iin«r In St. Paul on m.
day which checked a further forward mevo
ment. \wn» n it became apparent that tfca raCy
had exhausted its fore*. St. Paul ted tho way
downward; and yesterday It had got back o*«n
lower than before, the lowest before tno rally
being 152*1, while y- - ■ -ru .y It was 131.
The persistent selling of the stock waa rottwoj
to in last veekd article; and It was suggested
as a possible cause, that th- Beard of Directors,
or the mor<- conservative element thereof, might
be doubtful as to the expediency of continuing
the dividend at th* rate of 7 per cent. NoUttoa;
one ay or the other, has been heard on this
point. In the old times, the St. Paul manage
ment has been known to sell new issues of stock
In advance of a formal announcement of th«
same; but in these days, such methods ars not
considered respectable. So this Idea rr.ust b*
dlsnxlasodL Are the Standard Oil interests in
the stock being liquidated, in vte-w of trouble*
ahead? Thi3 is gnessiv.g. But the Street gen
erally is guessing, and was guessing very
earnestly yesterday when the whole market was
more or less Uerr.orai by the way St. Paul
was eclcl down.
It was on "Wednesday that the market got Ita
first hard knock, and the bear party appearsd
to have everything It.s own way. This meant
that a covering movement would Immediately
follow, which it did the next day. After th»
rr.crnlr.? orders from out of town had been dis
poosd of (being generally orders to sell fc«cau««
of Impaired inaisjhis). tho whole list advanced.
The closs was verj strong. Indicating a continu
ance of the rally Friday. Pennsylvania had I«d
the upward nsovement. on th» semi-official an
nouncement that the new fsaue of Pennsylvania
atock had beer, underwritten by two of ths lead
ing banking houses But the next day tha
papers were filled with descriptions of ths way
the Pennsylvania Company was smashing tha
V> estern Union's property along Its lir.es. which
operated ad a COM douche. It was fortunata
this neva did not come on Wednesday, whea
the whole rr.r-rket was falling. If it had, Chora
would certainly have i.en something: lli» a
srnr.sh.
The Street is saw divided in opinion as to
which will carry the most speculative weight— the
banking oanMaMtsM to finar.ee the new tssus of
i'ennsylvani i *rr C k. cr the epen and violent an
tagonism between the Pennsylvania and Could-
Rockefeller i::teresis. livenbody knows, of
course that this is not a telegraph, but a rail
road fisht. Mr. George Gould, backed by Mr.
John Rockefeller, has pushed his raliroaU
schemes Into the heart of Pennsylvania's terri
tory, coming Into Ptttsburg and preparing to
reach Baltimore; thus earning the Missouri Pa
c:fic-Wntia?h system from the West to lido
water. The occurrences of the past week havo
demonstrate J to th*? world how deeply this In
vasion is resented by the Pennsylvania people;
and undoubtedly Mr. Casaatfs orders for th»
wholesale destruction of Western Union prop
erty were In entire accord with the feollngs of
the Board of Directors of tho Pennsylvania Com
pany.
It is not the first time Mr. Cassatt and Itr.
Uockef oiler have come into collision; and when
they have before, there has been a rough nous*
in the Irr.rr.edlate surroundings of the flght
Th-?y have never, however, had a railroad flgh?.
and the uiiPoqsMinrn of the present conflict,
'.vhich Is on a larger scale than any pravtous
cne. are likely to be unpleasant. In so far as It
has already operated in the stock market— and
just how far only these most Immediately en
gaged have knowledge— it has been decidedly
discomforting.
It is ■oteworthy that the Pennsylvania people
make no bones of declaring to ail the world
what sort of a fight they are ready to make. Just
at a time when It would seem that thetr schemes
of large capital creation required that the specu
lative and Investing public should b« saved from
any such shock as this conflict would be certalr
'o give. It is not easy to understand this, un
>ss on the theory that the general Indirferenc
to stock ir.arket considerations which Is char
scttilsHi of the Pennsylvania management— -ir
tatdifferosM bern cf success — has In thia instance
been carried to extremes.

lie took action before It was too late. It ha :
i ecorr.e almost demonstrable that the l3su«=>
would be a failure. From the day It was an
nounced, people most friendly to the prcpertv
expressed the opinion that it was a mistake,
r imply because it vias asking the public to tak^
too r.'.uch. II was overtaxing the absorbent
power of the Investor. As the price of the o' '■
stock continued to fall, as was predicted It
would, the outlock for success became nor
dubious. Wbea the price got down to only
about five points above tho ȟbscr*ptior price,
while the market was falling all round It. Irr
iredl.ite action became necessary If the compary
was to get the money It Imperatively needed.
The bankers were appealed to, and the forma
tion of an underwriting syndicate, to take al
stocll ':ot subscribed for otherwise, was at one-*
entered pon. Th'.-s assures the Pennsylvania al
Its UIWISJ It puts it on easy street. This I?
done at a ccst la commissions cf only 2^» F* r
cent on the c^jih value of the stock so under

n i'..i<-r.5. This Is cheap "tnsurance. It la a etna!!
price to aay for averting the consequences of a
rerlous financial miscalculation. If th* n«w
issue had been a failure, as It threnttned to *».
the Pennsylvania wculd have been eerioiisly
tangled up with the rash ar.d costly works it h^s
on hand, and lack cf money to pay for them.
Under such conditions, the ultimate direct an I
indirect cost t<-> the company would profcably
have been very cer.sid-3ra.bly- "Ser than the i:i-
Mirance commission.
Furthermore, the failure of tho subscrtpt'en
would have had the worst kind cf effect on Vxa
stock market generally, and en Pennsylvan ■
stock in particular. Coming on the heels of ilr.
Morgan's failure with his Steel bond conv*r*ici
sefcenre, public confidence would have gv>no out
