Philippine Archipelago Proves •' '• • a Troublesome ;Matter-i j, , ROME/ July 6.— The Vatican.! is striving to find a compromise between satisfying the desires of Washington, as se^.. forth by Judge William H. Taft, Governor ot the Philippines, and relieving the Holy See from direct responsibility for the withdrawal of the friars from the Philip pine archipelago. Several plans to- this end have been discussed by the Vatican authorities. The most acceptable of tftc*» is that the generals of the four religious orders concerned, having been informed ot Washington's request, shall themselves order the withdrawal of their dependents^ who now number about 500. This plan •would necessitate a letter from the se.n eral of each order to Governor Taft pledging the writer to this action or the insertion 'of a clause in the contract tro-* tween Judge Taft and the Vatican that steps to this end would be taken imme diately by the generals when they were aware of the wishes of the United States. The Vatican would thus be under .no odium, the Pope merely accepting an ac complished fact. Ignores Sugar Convention. MELBOURNE. Australia.
