JSHt to the apostollo delegate for the
republics of Peru noltvta and Euca
dop to obtain precise Information as
to ihe legal status of Protestants
regarding the free exercise of religious
worship and the celebration f mar
The pontlOcal representative of the
Holy See promptly complied with my
request and now I am in a position to
say that the Protestants In Teru for
from King restricted In the free exer
cise of their worship are rather ac
corded a larger degree of tolerance
than Is compatible with a strict con
structs of the political constitution
of these countries
As to the aolemnltlnsr of marrUties
the delegate Inform me that whilst
the constitution of Teru recognizes ro
other form as valid than that pre
scribed by the council of Trent Pro
testants do as a matter of act wed
with religious ceremony in presence of
their mlnlters and civilly before the
consuls and ambassadors of their re
spective countries The same condi
tion of things relative to marriage ex
ists in Bolivia and Xcuador where the
exercise of religious worship Ss regu

See cannot Interfere

enlightened Age that an institution
claiming1 to be a moral and religious
power In the world should refuse to
lift a finger toward sweeping am ay
what a Roman Catholic editor In this

horrible and revolting

My attention is being dally called
to statements made in the newspapers
all oi er the country of compromises
that X agreed to between the gold
standard advocates and those who
think with me in Kentucky These nils
representations are so numerous and
como from so manydifferent quarters
that I desire to ani Ver once for all
4 No compromise or adjustment has
ever been offered from the gold men
to tne I surely never have tuggeeltd
one to theun I never saw my way
dear to compromise a prlnnlo and let
this case l have no desire to make the
experiment In the coming state con
vention in Kentucky the Lmu be
tween gold mono met all 1U and nv
people will be definitely and finally set

me there Is no yddle ground
I sincerely hope that the Demo
