Baltimobk, Md., July 30.?A reporter
of tho Ara called to-night 011 Cardinal
Gibbons in relation to the controversy
between tho tturoau of Catholic Indian
Missions and tho Commissioner of in
tiiwi affafrs. The cardinal sum:
"I have given the subject of tho Catholic
Indian Bureau in its relations to the
Interior Department much anxious
thought during the lust two weeks, and
have token all tho information that
could be obtained from best and most
trustworthy sources. I am now happy
to bo in a position to communicate
/acts and conclusions wjiich
ought to dispel tho feurs and encourage
the hopes of those intimately connected
with the Catholic Indians of the United
States. IJnduo importance, 1 am now
satisfied, has been attached to the remit
controversy between the commissioner
of indian allairs. Hon. T. J. Mor-1
inn, and the Bureau of Catholic Indian
"Mr. Morgan has thought it advisable
for the more elective expediting of
business lu ms department 10 uavo
all contracts for schools signed
by tho several superintendents of
Mirl; schools rather than by the
director of the Catholic Bureau,
iii herceoforo practiced. I do not sco
huvv this change con in any wanner affect
the real interest of the Indians, and
therefore it is much more benefitted by
pwl temper and forbearance and a disuositiou
to waive minor points than by
liarsh criticism and intemperate speech.
"We should remember that men in
liipli places have conflicting interests to
subserve, and they are required to consider
the views anil demands, not of a
section of the community, but of tho
entire people. Catholics have many realms
to thank Ciod for the blessings
they enjoy ns citizens of the United
States. It is but just to say in conclusion
that the Bureau of Catholic Indian
Missions has never obtained for itself
or for any ono of its employes one coat
of the Government's monoy.
"The cheques it has been receiving
from the Treasury of the United States
were immediately endorsed over to the
superintendents of the respective
schools. Its own expenses have been
entirely defrayed by privato contributions.

fur the hearing of the case.
The prosecutor, however, failed to

discharged. At the conclusion of the
hearing Architect Briean said, slgnifl-:
eantly: "I told you that Post would not

away." Subsequent events show that
the probabilities are that if Post had
Sit in an appearance he would now bo in

A dctectivo was waiting for him on
the outside of the magistrate's office
with a warrant in hie pocket, calling for
the arrest of the Stcol Tabular Car company's

"It is not the practice of this department

will go back to Washington tills fall a
much more vigorous and healthy man
than ho has been for years.
Have no foars about Mr. Blaine's

Prlvnte Art llooms Loused to Italic Funds,
Au Extraordinary Commission of Cardinals.
Home, July 30.?Tho IToly Sea has
just appointed an extraordinary commission
of Cardinals ^,to reorganize tho
Catholic missions. Two years ago Cardinal
Simsoni prepared and communi
cateu to tno i'c^ic a pian 01 reiorms, in
order to better regulate the action of
the propaganda. But tho coining of
General Simmons from England 011 a
special mission to Popo Leo in reforouce
to colonial questions had tho clTect
of postponing the execution of the projected
reforms, as the propaganda did
not wish to awaken the idea that tho reforms
wcro made in consequence of an
arrangement with England.
Any suspicion of such an nrrangmont
would have roused the greatest jealousy
in Franco. Loo, who has always been
in favor of tho missions taking a leading
part in the work of colonization has
revived these projects of reform. Tho
inquiry of the commission of Cardinals
will it is said oxtond over tho whole of
the apostolic works.
Tho Vatican does not intend to let tho
question of social reform drop now that
tne Pope's encyclical letter lins been
published. It is stated that inquiries are
still being made and instructions
sent to tho prelates of all countries to
encouruge Catholics to do their utmost
toward.aiueliorating tho condition of
the poor, and to affect social reforms
urged in tho encyclical.
llerr Schlocter, the Prussian minister
to the Vatican, will soon loavo Homo
for his ordinary vacation. His recent
negotiations with the Holy See havo
hud little success. Tho Vatican is
greatly (lissatiBfled with tho hardiness
with which Prussia is inclined to treat
the moat urgent ecclesiastical affairs.
The recent economic crisis at Homo
has almost ruined many of the great
ancient families, such us tho Borgnese,
Sciarra and Barberini. Tho Borghese
family appears to have been tho greatest
sufferers. Paul Borghese, its present
head, is said to havo ordered the most
rigorous economy in the management
of his propcrtios in order togctovor the
great losses recently sustained. lie has
distributed the works of art which composed
the celebrated Borghese gallery
among his nino brothers, so as to enable
them to lease the apartments given up
to tho art collections, to a bank. One
hears expressions of regret on oil sides
at this action. It is feared that the ox.
ample may find imitation on the part of .
the other great Jammes.,nnrt that there
may thus lie n general breaking up of
the line private art collections at Rome.
