[By Telegraph to the Evening Journal.] Ottawa, Out., Sept. 30.—The govern ment has received a memorial from Arch bishop Tache of the Manitoba diocese, asking that the previous petitions from the hierarchy, requesting relief for the Catholic minority in Manitoba, lie con sidered, now that the imperial privy council in the highest court in ihe em pire bos maintained the constitutionality of the law abolishing separate schools in Manitoba. When the question came up in the do minion parliament the government was glad to escape the responsibility of de ciding it, by referring it to the privy council and quieted the clamor ou both sides by announcing that the costs of ap peal would be borne by Canada, the matter looms up again and will doubt less cause a division in the cabinet, unless some loophole is discovered. It will no doubt have an important bearing on the succession to the pre miership as Sir John Thompson, who is looked upon as the coming man, is a Catholic and will no doubt side with his co-religionists. He will have to meet the strong opposition of Ontario's represen tatives, who were kept in the back ground during the reference to the privy council, but. will now come to the front again, backed up by members of parlia ment not in the cabinet, who will urge them on to resist the appeals and allow no interference in the prairie province. The Catholics of Manitoba are barked up by the French of both parties in Quebec. Of course the law must stand, as there is no legal resort beyond the privy council, and politicians are anx ious to see how the government will move in this weighty matter.
