QipL Augustus p. Gardner. Assistant Adjutant-General

portion of his very able. Instructive and Inter

Melklejohn upon the educational, religious

"and not a continual thorn In her side. It Is as
certain at the rising of the sun that th work
of reconstruction must be done by men ot dl
inttrctcd motives. '
In considering. ays Capt. Gardner, the
various dements which co to mak up the so

a detailed examination Is tlie method ot edu
cation It Ii on this branch that the fruit
which it Is hoped may be gathered In tho fu
ture must all ripen. Laws and schedules of
taxation may be chanced at will, but a long
and tedious journey lies ahead of the people
of the Vnlttd States before the island can be
emancipated from the chains of Ignorance and
the customs and habits of the people change
to enlightenment The first difficulty which
is met with by tho Investigator ot the school
system, or of anything else of an official na
ture In the Island. Is th impossibility of ob
taining exact Information One must proceed
very wanly in acccitinc facts as he receives
them, always beirlng In mind that there is
thn widest difference In the world between
what theoretically exists and what can prac-tl.-allv

the clerical establlthmeut maintains no more
than 240 priests nnd nssisunts. the sum total
of whose salaries nmounts to about lwi.000
pesos annually, the salaries ranging irotn
J.000 pesos per year for the Bishop down to
150 pesos per year for ths sacristans. Of
thfse loO.OOH pesos rnttur more than 40.000
are palJ to the clerlcil fore of the Cathedral
at San Juan alone. With tbe exception of Iho
capital and Ponce thero Is but one church in
each of the seventy townships Into which the
island Is divided. ln MaracucE. with ..
WO Inhabitants scattered over a vast extent
of territory, has only one ecclesiastical estab
Ilshmont, one curate with a salary of 1,500
pesos, two assistants with a salaty of 000 pesos
each, and one or two sacristans. ,
In ome of the larger cltlei, notably In
ronec. which Is rich, the fees receives! by tho
clergy amount to as much as 4.000 or .-.0U0
pesos annually for such Items as marriages,
burials, masses and special fees for the re
moval of Impediments to martlnce This
last Item ! sometimes a source of very hand
some profit to the priests, as It Includes the
cost of obtaining tho necessary dispensstian
for the msrrlatrcs of those jvho are of differ
ent beliefs, or of too close a decree of consan
eulnlty. or. as sometimes happens, different
cltirenthlps In the creator number of towns

nry alone, which Is br no me ins munificent
In ordinary townships his salarr amounts to
5O0 or 000 pesos nnnuatlr Since the Inva
sion of the Araorlcan troops the salaries of all
these priests, which have heretofore been psld
by the State, hare been cut off. a state of af
fairs which seems to lie viewed with perfect
equanlmltr by all except the priesthood Itself
For the most part tho priests aro exiiectedto
return home, nnd the leading citizens of Porto
Hico do not seem at all worried nt the prospect
of their dauchters belnc married by civil In
stead of religious processes
That the Porto Htciins. like others of the
Latin race, are naturally rclielout there is no
doubt But that tht-y aro willlnc to make am
particular sacrifice for tholr religion there Is
reason to question, especially as Shey reginl
that religion as not adapted to their spiritual
needs but rather as a meins of extortion for
tho benefit of the penlnstilir Spanish That
some priests cau be and will be supported by
the people themselres with volunteer sub
scriptions there is no doubt But whether
this ripe field of souls will be garnered largely
by French missionaries, as ha been the case
In 3Iexico. or by Ameri-ans. it is hard to judge
Ifoman Catholicism has a better chance tn the
Island. In view of the condition of tho natlre
