Denver University Fund.
Denver, Jan. s.—Eastern dispatches
In regard to the great Methodist $20,-
000,000 jubilee fund having led many
to suppose that the University of Den
ver Is about to receive a special dona
tion from that fund. Bishop Warren
has published the following letter:
“For the sake of perfect clarity of
statement permit me a word concern
ing the dispatch from Springfield,
Massachusetts, in reference to th£
$20,000,000 thank offering fund and its
relation to the University of Denver.
There is no general fund to be dis
tributed. but each institution has gone
In to collect what it could for Itself.
“The University of Denver owed, a
year ago, $150,000. To entirely relieve
|t of that incubus Mrs. Warren offered
to give $26,000 (not $75,000) and I of
fered to give $5,000 and raise $30,000
outside of Colorado. This money has
been waiting a long time for all Colo
rado to pay the remaining SIIO,OOO.
Twenty-two thousand is yet lacking to
make up the amount. It is confidently
expected that the friends of education
will soon make a red letter day for
the university, by issuing a proclama
tion of its emancipation from that

Willemstad. Jan. s.—The forces of

Powers Demand Pound of Flesh.
Pekin, Jan. 5. —The signatories of
the Chinese peace protocol, except the
United States, have consulted their re
spective governments and practically
have decided •to identically notify
China that her failure to fulfill tbe ob
ligations provided for by tbe protocol
will entail grave consequences.
A strong sentiment exists In favor
of a compromise if Chins will admit
that the protocol demands the pay
ment of the Indemnity on gold basis,
and confines her arguments to the
hardships resulting from the Increase
of the debt by nearly twenty per cent,
since the signing of the protocol,
through the depreciation in the value
of silver and the probable further de
crease from the expected adoption of
the gold standard in the Philippines
and in the Straits Settlements.
But the powers refuse to waive the
plain interpretation of the protocol.
The danger exists that if China main
tains her position, some of the powers
may demand territory or other con
cessions for compensation.
Catholics Must Use the Courts.
Manila. Jan. 5. —Solicitor General
Arenota. in a written opinion, sustains
Governor Taft's contention that he is
not in a position to intervene regard
i ing the possession of Roman Catholic
property seized by independent Catta
j oltcs. and that the courts must settle
i the question.
The adherents of the independent
Catholic church have seized several
churches and convents, and in some
Instances native parish priests have
seceded, continuing in possession of
the churches and have defied the new
pastors appointed by the Roman Cath
olic authorities. Archbishop Guldl,
papal delegate, has formally requested
Governor Taft to dispossess the inde
pendent Catholics and restore the Ro
man Catholics, and to use the con
stabulary in so doing, if necessary.
But the governor has declined to do
so, holding that such action is beyond
the powers of the executive. He also
advised an appeal to the courts and
cabled the facts to Secretary Root,
who sustained him.

commotion, however, had so disas

the drinks used as “aperitifs.” or
appetizers, by the bulk of the French
middle sad lower classes. After care
ful analysis Dr. Laborde, who sa«

every quality of absinthe contains
poisonous elements. He discards the
fallacy that vermouth, or noyeau :«

French gin is a form of wood spirit.
