MAYER & CO. Seventh Street Between D & E • - \ — VATICAN AROUSED BY HERRIOT LETTER Church Circles Hold Premier Is Voicing Anti-Religious Spirit in France. ..r the Aft»o<‘uted Press. ROME. September 29—The reply of M. Herriot, the French premier, to the French cardinals respecting the ! suppression of the French embassy ! to the Vatican is much commented j upon in Home, both inside and out side the Vatican. Authoritative per- i Manages in the Pope's entourage de clare that M. Herriot, under the cloak of liberty, im|>artiality and tolerance j for all forms of w'oraltip, is simply voicing the anti-religious spirit which originated with the Voltaire doi trines and reached Us apex, first during the French revolution and later with anti-clericalism, that dur ing the last century culminated in France with the Combes and ‘laiubet presidencies. Vatican circles charge M Herriot with short-sightedness and ingrati tude. declaring tthat he does not realize, or forgets, the great advan tages France has gained, both at home and abroad, by the support re ceived from the church. The great bulk of the liberals ap plaud M. Herriofs letter, which they i characterize as one of the clearest and most comprehensive presenta tions of a modern lay state on the supreme sovereignty of civil govern ment. permitting no interference by any religion in the management of public affairs, but allowing Hie free development of any < .ult within the I Houses For Sale and Rent' J.

The passage in which Premier Her riot recalls that Hichelieu and Uut arln both held strongly to the need of the state's being independent of church interference is considered a moot effective counter-attack, as well as the reference to Franco protecting Catholicism in the Near East, instead of the church protecting France.
