\Pope Pleased with the Moderation
I Shown in France.
Rome. Dec. Ift.— The Pope Is rejoicing this
evening- that the happenings in France are not
bo serious as had been feared. He has ex
pressed the hope that the good sense of the
French people will end In their finding a way to
triumph over the present difficulties.
The Pontiff to-day received Cardinal Satolli,
who was formerly Papal Delegate In the United
States. The Cardinal explained the situation
with regard to Catholicism in the United States,
where there exists r^ol separation between
Church and State, Baying the benevolent atti
tude of the State toward religion resulted In
the complete and dignified liberty of the Church.
"That," exclaimed the Pope, "is really a regime
of progress."
Cabinet Will Not Press Most Rig
orous Amendment.
Paris, Dec. 16.— 1n the Chamber of Deputies
to«nlght M. Briand, Minister of Public Worship,
read the text of the Separation law of 1905. The
law waa at once sent to committee.
The Cabinet met a«ain to-day, and completed
the text of the amendments to the Separation
law of 1906. In order to avoid the appearance
of persecution. It has been definitely decided not
to press the question of treating recalcitrant
priests as eubjects of a foreign power until It
Is clearly demonstrated that the Church is sys
temattcally reslFting th« law.
Portsmouth, Dec. lii.-An examination was
made to-day of the British battleship Dread

plates on the port fide were badly indented and

Dreadnought struck some punken wreckage on

Galicla. in Austrian Poland, show that In 1906 Ga
licians who had emigrated to the United States
sent home, a total of 55/00 money orders, valued at
$1,200,000. This is In addition to small sums often
n.all«d In unregistered letters. The remarkable in
crease of recent years In the price of land in Ga

by emigrants, who returned from the United States.

Believes Congo Stories Exaggerated
— Answers Dr. Guinness.
{By iv]»gr»ph to Th« Tribune ]
Caltiinore. Dec. 13.— Cardinal Glbboriß, whom Dr.
11. Gratton Guinness, of London, In an address be
fore the Congo Reform Association, in this city,
last night accused of being "the Btronsr hand In
this country who prevented the government from
noticing the atrocities in the Congo," made a
statement to-day in which he maintains his posi
tion and defends his actions, stating that he is
of the opinion that the stories of the outrages In
tho Congo are grossly exaggerated. The Cardinal
I have observed in tha papors that an emissary
of the Congo Reform Association has made a
personal attack on me for my attitude in defend
ing King Leopold's Congo administration against
these unlustltia!tle attacks.
There lias been a great amount of exaggeration
In these Stories of maladministration. The King
is a wise M well us a humane, ruler, and we hear
through missionary (sources that whenever cases
of cruelty have occurred— aa such things will occur
in every human government— the King has been
prompt to r»-dr«S3 such abuses and to punish the
offenders. His recent decrees granting tru* natives
additional lands and ameliorating the conditions
of the native laborers are an added evidence of his
desire to do everything possible for the good of his
native subjects..
1 fear this agitation against King Leopold s ad
ministration Is animated partly by religious leal
ousv and partly by commercial rivalry. It is to
be hoped that th« Individuals who are carrying it
on will not be successful in their efforts to induce
the great powers of tho earth to interfere In the
affairs of a small nation. In our schoolboy days
the most odious and contemptible creature we used
to encounter was the bully who played the tyrant
toward the weak, but still more intolerable is the
bullying nation that picks a quarrel with a feeble
nation with tho base intention of seizing her pos
sessions, playing the role that King Ahab enacted
toward Naboth. "" • _
With the uttitude of the American government I
do not concern myself, as I said before. I have
means of information through th« missionaries In
the Held, and I have no doubt the American gov
ernment will be fully informed of the situation
through its consul general out there, who. I am
told, has only recently arrived in the Congo and has
not yet had time to send In a report. He will, no
doubt, soon set at rest these false accusations
against King Leopold's administration, which hns
brought civilisation ami Christianity to Central
I may add that In defending the Belgian admin
istration of the Congo I have no personal or
selfish motives to subserve, but am actuated solely
by a sense of Justice and fair play.
When Dr. Guinness made the attack upon the
Cardinal yesterday Dr. Timothy Stone, of Brown
Memorial Presbyterian Church, In which the ad
dress was delivered, and Dr. Wilbur P. Sheridan,
of Mount Vernon, demurred against such a charge
being made. The latter said to-day:
"I think the charge against Cardinal Gibbous waa
unwarranted, and I was quick to my feet to defend
him. I aald that I entertained a profound jegard
for Cardinal Gibbons, whom I admire for his catho
licity of view, and that I could not subscribe to the
statement made by tha Rev. Dr. Guinness. By
catholicity, as I expressed myself, I, of course,
meant In the sense that Cardinal Gibbons is a
broad man, and I also think him a Just one. Ido
not believe that he would defend any cause he be
lieved to be wrong.'"

The Pianola Piano is a sensible gift, be
cause the user is learning something useful —
something really worth while— at the same time
that he or she is being entertained. It creates
an interest in the wonderful realm of music,
and brings its owner into close touch with the
great composers of all times.
It Is the one gift that the men of
the family can enjoy equally with
their wives and daughters.
TERMS : The Pianola Piano cost, fro m $550

Greenwich, Conn., Dec. 15. — Joseph M. Neil, a
young blacksmith, whose parents live In New
York, and who had a shop on the Belle Haven
Rood, Greenwich, known to many New Yorkers
who spend the summer here, was killed last
night in a room in the Greenwich Hotel, where
he and his bride of a few weeks had gone to live.
Whether It was a contemplated murder or
whether an accident or the result of a sudden
quarrel Is a question which Chief of Police Rltch.
the medical examiner and Prosecuting Attorney
White are endeavoring to answer.
The general opinion here is that there was
foul play. Nell was an athlete* and occasionally

Yesterday afternoon a woman about twenty
three years old entered his place of business
and workmen heard loud talk. Last night be
went to the hotel accompanied by the woman,
whom he said was his bride. Ten minutes
after they entered their room the woman came
downstairs and asked for a physician.
Dr. Li. O. Thompson was summoned. He
found Mr. Nell dead on the floor. There was a
dark spot beneath his right eye. as though the
skin had been pricked. Some blood was on the
Mrs. Xoll cald he had suddenly dropped to
the floor dead.
While the physician was examining: the body
the woman took the dress suit case and, tilling
the clerk that ehe would spend the remainder
of the night with her mother In New York and
would return In the morning at 10 o'clock,
went to the station.
The death was not reported to the police until
Bhe had left town. The body was removed to
Knapp's morgue, and to-day an autopsy was
made, showing that death had been caused by
the piercing of the brain with come pointed in
strument, possibly a hatpin, which was found
on the floor.
It has been learned that Neil deeded his prop
erty here to his sister. Nellie, of New York, in
November, and took the original deod from th«
Town Clerk's office, where It was recorded only
yesterday afternoon.
Mrs. Neil wag arrested here last night at No.
185 East 95th street, charged with being a fugi
tive from Justice. The Chief of Police of Green
wich, It is said, has a warrant charging 1 the
woman with manslaughter. She became much
wrought up when arrested, and this, together
with the general debility and bruises about her
fact', caused the local police to have her sent at
once to Bellevuo Hospital.

In the Building Trades' Employers' Association and
an equal Dumber from ea ih union, under the arbi

tha arbitration plan, began yesterday at the Build-
In? Trades Club. Broadway and 36th street.
For some time the unions have been agitating for
a revision of pome of the provisions of the hkc*^

unions for their share of the expenses of the g^n
