TV, Thar Is What the Silver Fight May Bring.Ahout. SPLIT W BOTH GAMPS Free Coinage Elements May Buck at Both Chicago mid St. LoulH Stutes Claimed by the Possible Four Factions in the Event of the Dis ruption. The probability thnt four Presidential tickets, representing Tactions or the two big political parties, will be in the llcid during the national campaign, as a result or conflicting views on one of tlio two leading issues is regarded with incredulity by many leading politicians here. The opinion thnt at least three candi dates, two Democrats and oue Re publican, will be nominated, is al most universally expressed by those professing to have studied the situation carefully and exhaustively, while some declare that at both St. Louis and. Chicago the Democratic and Republican parties Will be split beyond a possibility of rcamal gamation, and that the natural outcome will be the placing of two men before the people by each party. The boast is being made by the Demo cratic silver men thnt the followers of the President and his sound money doc trine will have insufficient strength in the convention, and secretly many of the friends of Mr. Cleveland arc acknowledging that nnless the current of Democratic opinion can be forced to flow in another direction from the one' now apparent, the Chicago platform will declare decisively and without ambiguity for free coinage at 1G to 1. ON THE OTHER HAND. The free silver men in the Republican party claim that a similar condition of affairs will exist at St. Louis, but in their contention they have not the degree of support that is being accorded to that made by the Democrats. Such men as Senators Teller, Dubois and Wolcott, how ever, assert tliat they stand an excellent chance of being able to secure a declara tion favoring free coinage, and add most emphatically that ir the convention re fuses to recoguize them to that, extent they will name their own man and fight the gold standard wing of the party. The slow but unavoidable decline of the free coinage movement throughout the country is spurring them to action in the hope of reviving it at the last moment, and they have now reached that stage of desperation where they are willing to resort to almost any methods to save them selves. In the event that four Presidential Uckets are placed in Uie field by the two leading parties, the strength of the sound money Republicans will not be considerably lessened. The Republican States which would follow Teller and his free silver associates, would vote the Democratic ticket provided it sanctioned free silver, rather than support a Republican souutl money man. Senator Dubois, of Idaho, is authority for that statement, and he has declared that In his State and several others nearby, the leading issues will bo "money," and tkat the fight will not be waged along any other lines. IN EVENT OF FOUR TICKETS. According to a summary, which has been prepared by an impartial observer, who bears a reputation tor being well informed In politics If fcur tickets are put before the people the sound money Republican candidate will carry nine more Slates than the other three combined. De figures that this candidate will be accorded the strength of tweuty-seven States, the free silver Republicans will bccure eight, the sound money Democrats three, and the opposing Democrats seven. The strength of the sound money Re publicans will be scattered in all sections of the country, North, South. Eastand "West. The free silver Democrats will find most of their friends in sections of the South, silver Republicans in the far "West, and tho sound money Democrats m a portion of the Northeast. - The statement of this gentleman is In teresting. "While it may not be accurate in every particular, as some of the States which he gives to ceriain tactions are in doubt, it represents the bulk of the strength which each branch can command. To the sound money Republicans he yields the States of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island. Maaachuselts, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Minnesota, "Wis consin, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana. "West Virginia, Iowa, North Dakota, Washington, Oregon, Mary land, Virginia, Missouri, Nebraska, Kan sas and Louisiana. FOR SILVER REPUBLICANS. To the silver Republicans he concedes California. Nevada, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Colorado, Utah and North Carolina. To the Tree silver Democrats he gives South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Texas and Arkansas; in behalf of Mr. Cleveland's friends he makes the disputable claim that they will secure the Stales of New York, New Jersey aud Connecticut Of the forty-five only seven States are open to dispute. The sound money Repub licans refuse to concede the three claimed by the Cleveland Democrats aud also assert that witbaub peradventure of a doubt California will declare for the gold standard as well as protection. Ken-, tucky, they claim, will be round In their column, but all four factions are claiming the same Slate. Recent developments in Georgia would lead to the belief that the people of that State are about evenly divided on themoney issue, andbothhranches of the Democratic party are asserting their superiority. It would seem that after deducting the Republican strength from the three States claimed by thehard money Democrats there would no tremaln a sufricient number of votes forCIeveland'scandidates to warranta declaration that lie could poll a respectable ballot numerically, and it is apparent that the additional strength given this man from the Southern States would not be sufficient to outnumber the free silver Democratic forces. The Tree silverites in that party are unquestionably in the majority. EIGHT STATES FOR SILVER. Top eight States claimed to be in the Teller ranks, with tlie exception of Cali fornia and North Carolina, can be relied upon as being decidedly opposed to a declaration for sound money. It is con fidently believed that they would waive party affiliations if necessary in gaining their point and it Is not impossible that in the event the Republicans refuse to con cede them free coiuage they will cast their lot with tiie Democrats. That three tickets at least will enter the field is now not considered improb able. A split in the Democratic con vention and the refusal of a majority of Republicans to indorse free coinage, will naturally be followed, it is declared, by the union of tticsilver malcontents who, by a combination with Uie waning Populist forces, will muster considerable strength. It is asserted that with the combined silver strength and the divided gold forces the silver men will win, but assertions by gold Democrats are not calculated to verify this statement. "Between fanatic free silver doctrine and a protccUve tariff bill." said one of these gentlemen from New York, "I should Indorse the Republican principle of pro tection. Free silver must be defeated and "I Think that a goodly number of the gold Democrats can be relied upon in the case of emergency by the friends of gold, re gardless of party creed."

JAPAN PATIENT IN TRIAL Lnrjjo Numbers of Japanese Subjects Murdered, iu tho Island Slnco Fob-, ruary Itussla'H Designs Not So Fnr Itvuchiug as Supposed FJmperor's Grucious "Words to tho Diet. (Special Correspondence, UnitedPress.) Toklo, April 1, via San Francisco, April. 19. It Is beUeved affairs in Korea are rapidly approaching another crisis, which will involve tho downfall of the preseut premier and his faction. TheUieaislhatLi Pon-Cliln will evade the difficulties or his position by proceeding to Russia ostensibly asambassadortoattend the coronation ceremonies and that Pak Yong-Uo, now in the United States, will be summoned to head the government. Rumor now alleges that tlic flight, of the king to tlie Russian legation was entirely auc io me mncninaiion ui j-ii i-oii-i.mii. He deceived both sides, the king by a cleverly fabricated story that the Russian representative was highly desirous of his majesty's secret removal to the legation, so that he might escape tfie fate of his late consort and tlie Russian representative by an equally ingenious pretense that the king eagerly wished to seek asylum under the roof of the Russian legation against tlie murderous projects on the part of the Japanese. Doth were Imposed upon and the afrair of February 1 1 took place. JAPANESE MURDERED. The number of Japanese subjects mur dered in Korea since February 11, now totals thirty -eight, in addition to five, who are missing. Great patience has bceu shown by tlie government and people of Japan in the face of these outrages, the nation's indignation being curbed by a conviction that any resolute employment of force to quell the insurgents and punish the murderers might involve a collision with Russia. But it being now evident lhat Russua's' designs in the peninsula are not so ma tured or far-reaching as' was originally supposed, the Japanese will probably adopt vigorous measures to protect the property of their nation. The market prices of nearly all commodities in Japan show a strong downward tendency. There is a general feeling or uneasi ness throughout the country in connection with Korean nfrairs and the disastrous condition of ttio silk business supple mented by low quotations in the rice mar ket and by the check that the export in dustry experiences from the appreciation of sliver, tend to deter the people from making purchases. The seventh session or the Japanese diet came to an end on March 28, having been proiouged ror two days to facilitate tlie passage or one or two impnrtantbills. On llie.29tli the closing ceremony was per formed. The emperor's message was couched in exceptionally gracious words. His majesty lauded the house's dilllgencc, patriotism and devotion to the public Interests. FRIENDLY TO THE CABINET. There was, indeed, good reason for this display of Imperial satisfaction. Never before in the history of the Japanese diet had its proceedings been marked by such moderation or by so umicable disposition to support the cabinet. Out of 135 bills submitted by the government no less than ur ),uvi.iuii.ud nu iw.-j uiuii 129 were passedund three only rejected, thef rest beiug either withdrawn or not debated A company to buUdcarnagesand locomo tives Is about to be started by some of the leading capitalists in Japan.

CRANK SCORES A PASTOR. Hubbub in a California Church Over a Mnn With u Pistol. Oakland, Cal., April 10. A crank with a revolver created a stampede in the First Unitarian Church here this morning. Pro fessor Griggs, of Stanrord University, who rilled the pulpit In the absence of thepastor, was about to open service when a roughly dressed young man walked up the aisle and. halting in front of the pulpit platform, drew a pistol and announced his intention of being tieard. In a loud voice ho denounced religion as a humbug, stating that he could prove upon the authority or Pror. Leconte, President Jordan, orstandrord.andolherdiatinguished scientists, that man descended from the lower animals. Col. John P. Irish came rorward to reason with the intruder, but the stranger leveled the revolver at the colonel who stood his ground and dared him to approach. While Mr. Irish was endeavoring to calm the crank, two membersof the congregation slipped up behind him and pinioned his arms before he could do anything. Meantime half or the congregation had made their exit in terror, while Pror. Griggs fled by a rear door. The stranger was taken to the police station, where he gave the name of Lewis Borges, of Portland, Ore. He is regarded as a harmless lunatic. DH. BEHRING'S SERUM. Opinion Expressed That the Campaign Agulnst It Is Unwarranted. Berlin, April 19. Pror. Eulenberg. the eminent German physician and assistant to tlie clinic or the University of Berlin, lias written a letter to the Medical Ga zette in which lie declares that there is no cause for a hostile campaign aguinst Dr: Hearing's diphtheria serum, which, ir properly injected, he says, is perfectly safe. Even ir it were not quite fresh, he continues, it would not cause death with such rapidity as in the case of the inrant son of Dr. Langcrhaus, the medical di- rector or the Moabit Hospital, who diedf two weeks ago from the erfects of a precautionary injection or the serum. Pror. Eulenberg thinks that Dr. Langcrhaus was himseir to blame in making a mistake in giving the injection so that an embolism was induced. The article of Prof. Eulen-, berg has helped greatly to allay the serum scare. Berlin Mny Day Holiday. Berlin, April 18. The Berlin employers have agreed to give their employes agenera'l holiday on May 1, Tor the purpose, as they allege, of enabling them to attend tlie opening of the trades exhibition which takes place on that day.

Nearly all of the persona taking part in this conrercuce were opposed to the extreme stand taken by the President. Though not opposed to a dignified assertion or tho Monroe Doctrine, they objected to the threat or war in the message. Many or them at the time declared against tlie position taken by the President. They now wish to make their objections, if possible, a national expression. Not the least pronounced opponent of the President's views was Abram S. Hewitt, cx-mayorofNew York city.

The details were very numerous, and began with the announcement by the notary to the conse crator that there was present tho apostolic commission for the consecration of the blshop-eleet. Thiswasreadandtlienfollowd the Innumerable circumstances of the conse cration. Thefealures which wereaddressed to the ear, was the chorat singing of the priests of the "Te Deum," and the chant ing of the litanies, accompanied by the organ placed on tlie left of the sanctuary-. During the ceremony the bishop-elect lay prostrate for some time, in the sanctuary in commemoration, it Isvaid. of the prostra tion of the Saviour in the garden of Gethse mane. It was at this point that the litanies of the saints were chanted. RECEIVING THE RING. The head or the elect was bound with linen in another part of the ceremony and was then annolnted; the pastoral staff was given to him, and also the ring as a token of fidelity. The ofrerlng of the elect to the consecrator was lighted can dles, two loaves of bread and two small barrels or wine, both ornamented and Hgurative. The kiss or peace was then given by Cardinal Satolli, and this was rollowed by all the priests repeating that ceremony. One or the last details was the giving to the new bishop or the crosier, and while the "Te Deum" was singing Bishop O'Gorman, accompanied by Bishops Marty and Keane, passed down the center aisle bestowing bis blessing on the con gregation. The church was so packed that it was only possible to make room Tor this detail in the middle aisle. This practically concluded the reatures or the consecration. There were very many de tails not here given, but which are essential only to tiie consecrator and the consecrated. The sermon or the day was preached by the eloquent and learned Archbishop Ireland or St. Paul. His text was the commission or the Saviour to the apostles to preach the Gospel to all nations. The rirst part or the sermon dealt with doc trinal points and especially to the nature or the apostolute, the deaconate and the priesthood. Then he explained the origin and power of consecration as inherent in the episcopacy and the oneness of the Catholic Church as its power for good and endurance. He eulogized the priesthood within the respective dioceses and spoke or it as or higher and more practical value than that or the various orders. He alo spoke In terms or high praise or the conduct of the Catholic University and the part it was expected to ploy in the advancement or education and the cause or the church in America. Never, he said, was there a better field for work than in the vast domain of America, and it should be the ambition of the clergy to seek for higher and better things continually. Their motto should be. Paulo majora canamus. ARCHBISHOP IRELAND'S SERMON. He addressed Bishop O'Gorman direct, speaking of their 'old acquaintance and championship in work, and emended him a warm welcome to his newfieid -where he said he wonld be received with honor by Catholici and non-Catholics alike. Addressing Cardinal Satolli, he said; 'Cardinal Satolli: Soon, we are told, you are to leave us. Speak to Leo of the loyalty or Catholics In America to his apostolic see. or their warmest love for him personally. Bear with you sweet memories of our America. Your mission lias been in on eminent degree successful. Your wisdom, your quick understanding or our civil and political institutions and or tlie temper of the American people, Cath olic and non-Catholic contributed to your peaceful victories. Our gratitude is pledged to you. May your successor be not unlike yourself." The part of the sermon which was per haps heard with the deepest attention and which was delivered witii the greatest force and eloquence was that in which he de veloped the relation of the church to the state and his individual relations as a priest to tlie government. On these sub jects, he spoke as follows: "And now I advert to the place of this morning's episcopal consecration. It is tlie city of Washington, which, as the Capital or this republic, symbolizes, as no other city does, modern institutions, modem ideas, and modern progress. "The Catholic church and America! The past and the present; irreconcilable, opposite, some have said; friends and allies, I say. America is the present; the church is the past, and she is the present, too. "Take not the sociul or political sur roundings of the church in any epoch of her long career as the native conditions of tlie church are the necessary results of her own life. The church is God's super natural kingdom; she is above human ele ments and human conditions; she fits her self to all human conditions where the laws of natural morals are observed, spreading through them her divine lire, puriTying and elevating them, hut never identirying herseir with them. She lived in Jerusalem and Rome without being Jewish orRoman. She sal upon the throne of Conslantinc, without being imperialist. She roamed with the wild harnarians -without being barbarian. She passed down through the middle ages without being mediacv.ilist. CHURCH IN AMERICA.

The church brings to America the plenitude or the supernatural, as it was manifested in Christ, whose immediate creation history shows her to be. However pertect the natural may be, it leaves a vacuum in souls.

"The liberties, the democracy, the spirit or progress which are the glories of America, are the outcome of the deepest principles of the teachings of the Catholic Churcn. Lllerry and progress came into the world with her and prospered always under her breathings. The most positive precepts or the Catholic Church go to the building up of America. She prescribes loyalty to the State, purity of personal life, church charity to rellow men. Wher the church reigns in souls you flndrespecc for law and social order, good citizenship, a pure and unpurchoaatile ballot, tem perance, moral virtue, and sacrifice of seir to country in time of peace and in time of war. Happy America if Catholic precepts are preached and enforced fat and wide withm thy borders! "The Catholic- Church would fain win minds and hearts in America. That is her mission from t-er founder, who said "Teach all nations." By what arms does she pro pose to win minds and hearts' Solely by arguments or truth and deeds of goodness, ir those arms prevail what true AmericHn will blame the Catholic Church and accuse her or "treason to country: SPHERES OF CHURCH AXD STATE. "The Church recognizes as her own sphere raitn and moral'. She possesses and claims no mission m civil and political matters. The State appropriates to itself civil and political matter and assumes no authority in the domnln of faith and morals. There Is no room for conflict between Churcr. and State: both move m separate and distinct spheres. "If the church encroaches on the sphere of the state we should bid her be away. If the state enters into the sanctuary of conscience, the proper empire or the church, the appeal is to God, and the state is ordered to hold ofr its hands. There is not an American who will not say, "Better obey God than man. and this is all that Catholics ever would be permitted to say by the Catholic- church. ""Separation of church and state, as we have it in America, church and state re volving freely in their respective spheres Catholics fall behind none of their fellow citizens in admiring it and demanding its continuance. "The Catholic church wishes no aid from the state in the preaching of her gospel. She rests her cause on its truth and beantv. But liberty from the state she wishes and clamora ror. as a sacred and inalienable right; liberty in its fullest girts under the common law or the land; 'liberty which other associations are entitled to and re ceive. "Yes, we claim liberty In our religious belief andobservancesandm the enjoyment of all our rights of citizenship. CATHOLIC AND AMERICAN". "I am a Catholic, I am a priest and a bishop, but I am an American citizen. and I must be debarred from no rights or privileges accorded, to other citizens, be cause I am a Catholic, or because I carry upon me the insignia of my priesthood. I can hold office und I can do work educa tional and charitable for the state, al though I am a Catholic and a priest, and no one in the name of liberty shall debar me. "Separation of church and statel Most assuredly. The state must not aid in the propagation of the faith of a church but she must not impede and hamper the church in her work and close her out from the necessary opwrtunities to do it. Separation of church and statel Most assuredly again. But let there not be. in the working out of this separation wild and extreme measures, which would tend to make society godless and destroy in it all moral life and supernatural hopes. Often under cover of separation of church and state, infidelity and impiety are stealthily advancing their cause. "My words betray no rear for the future. Americans are a people of sincere religious convictions and of profound common sense and they well know how to keep church and state separate, and yet give liberty its rull sway, and guard religion and morals." After the services the visiting clergy were entertained at dinner by tlie president and directors of Carroll Institute. It was a total abstinence feast o far as spirituous liouors were concerned, hut royally ample in other respects. Cardinal Satolli presided at the dinner.
