General Funston is quoted as saying that the. Catholic Church had had antes to do with the continuance of h trouble with the Filipinos, and that it America were to drive the friars out of Luaaa and coniaeate every inch of the property held by the Church the insur rection would outckly be quelled After consultation with other dignitaries of Che Church, Archbishop r'hapeile. of New Orleans, who has been appointed by (be Pope as Apostolic Delegate to the Phil ll.pUtes to investigate Le charges made against religious orders there, was author ized to issue a statement to the public in answer to the remarks made by General Fustston When seen bj a Times reporter laat night. MflBaignor Cfaapelle stated that be sincerely believed that the report of the aliased statements made by General Fun ston was the result of deft twisting, color ing, and misquoting on the part of the As sociated Press The venerable prelate fur ther stated that he had prepared the fol lowing as an answer to the published stasamente, that every word contained bs low has been careful! weighed and con sidered, and is signed as evidence that it is an official document. Archbishop Coa petle stated that he wtu exceedingly sorry that there should be necessity for such a document. Tits statement fol ows The Art?kb4Hht's StHtement. "In answer to Genet al Funston's state ment made in as address to the students of Stanford University, that 'if Congress woold drive out the friars and confiscate every inch of Church property the bottom would drop out of the insurrection within one week. The inhabitants of Luzon are completely under the Church,' I deem it proper to make the following public state. meal. "JCaewtag wfaat I do from most reliable authority of General Funston' broadmind edsssBs and seme at fairness. I do not betfeve that he has been quot ed correctly He may have stated that the insurgents demand this as a con dition of peace, but that he gave them as ills own sentiments I cannot credit From my wn experience I know bow easy it is to be misquoted. All I can say is. if Gen eral Funston did make this remarkable statement, he manifested a dense ignorance of the vcrk done by the religious orders in this archipelago On the very face of it, however It shows quite plainly that it did cot come from one as well posted as Gen era Funton should be on aitalrs in Luzon He la quoted as saying 'The inhabitants of Luzon are completely under the Church Now, I would ask bow can this be possible when ever priest (with the exception of a few natives) in the Island of Luzon, outside of the walled city of Manila, is a prisoner of the insurgents For the past eighteen months this state of affair has existed and during alt this pe riod more than 36 friars have been under -gotae; unheard-of torture in insurgent dun geon. This being a fact, it U hard for me to see how the islands can be "under the friars It looks to me as though just the opposite ere the case "That the Insurgents have asked as one of their terms of peace the expulsion of the friars and the confiscation to the in surgents of all the Chareh property is a fact well known, but we are told by the Government official, (and I know it to be a fact from other reliable sources) that the insurgents represent only one tribe out of the eighty-five tribes peopling the archi petaco. so the sentiments voiced by tbe ioaw-geats about tbe friars and Church property cannot be taken as the sentiment of the great boar f the natives, no more than they can be taken as the sentiments of the natives toward our people and Gov- Llfted Oat of Sai ajtcrj . "Whatever tne natives are or have they owe to the friars. By them they were lifted out of savagery and brought undei the pleased nd refining influences of Chrssthuitty. By them they were educated, not only la the schools, but in the fields and the workshops, were taught by them the very Industries which are cow the source of their prosperity Mr Paytcn. the agent of the Bpiscopal Foreign Mission As fcochttion, tells us that "the natives are the moat moral and religious people on the face of the (lobe.' Now, the men who taught than to be so cannot be such men as some narrow -minded people would try and have us believe. Rev. Dr Abeel, a Scotch Pro testant misatonary. also testifies that 'near ly the whole population of the Filipino architiBwinw has been converted to tbe Catholic faith by the Spanish monks, and a wonderful improvement in their social condition has been the result. He thsn goes oa to show that if anyone doubts this improvesnent it can easily be made mani lest hy oosaparing the Christian native with tats southern neighbor of tne same blood the fanatical Moro "As to the confiscation of the estates you snfcght as well talk of confiscating tht estates of tbe Vanderbilts, the Astors, and other saiUktnaires whose estates have, in tne course of years, grown so wonderfully These would he just as much right and Justice ia one case as ia the other The estates of the religious orders have been acquired in the usual way by purchase, and in tne coune of nearly four centuries have natnndry rwn bwge. but if even unbiased Protestant witnesses are to be credit ad, lasne as they are, all are used for the bet terment and uplifting of the natives irirtwrw jMLrdHeet AxricuKiire. "A Conner British Consul (a Protectant), wrttteg 00 this subject, says 'It was by Mans of these estates the friars intro duced agricuttnre and settled habits of lif among tribes originally nomadic It was by means of these estates that they got them to live In villages and introduced among them the arts of civilized life It was by means of these estates that they acquired the power of inducing them to labor with a certain amount of regularity and method the great safeguard against a relapse again into their ortgnal stat: of savagery Tne natives,' he cays, 'are, with some race exceptions, ia need ot tute lage, without which they would fall back to the customs of their ancestors a tute lege that no one can exercise belter than the friars. Within the precincts of the monasteries are to be found carpenter shops, forges, brick and die yards, etc, to teach the natives various trades.

Dr riEhburn spoke of the great strides which Christianity had made Not only, ho said, had all the continents recognized the supreme being, but the Islands of the sea were calling out for enlightenment He thought that this country had a grand mis sion to perform In the newly acquired pos sessions in the Philippines, and that the natives of tho3e Islands were inxlous for the support of the United States and tho assistance of her missionaries to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ The reference of Dr Pishburn to the Philippine ques tion aiiclted applause from the congrega tion.

The missionaries were driven out of the country, but left the effects of their teach ings before they went. There is no doubt that Japan was a Christian countr before the Pilgrim fathers camo to this countr The secret of the success of the Christian religion in Japan Ilea in the fact that only the fundamental principles wero taught.
