TIMES A iJJ UJ UT jLIJL VOL. VII NO. 82. BARRE, VT., FRIDAY, JUNE 1!, 1903. PRICE, ONE GENT. THE DAI MAY INDICT A WOMAN New Ramifications of Postal Scandal Found HEADLESS DEPARTMENTS. With Removal of James T. Metcalfe Not a Division Commander is Left. Washington, June ID. The federal grand Jury, which has been Investigat ing postal affairs, probably will bring in five indictments before Monday against persons involved. Assistant District Attorney Taggart, who has the cases in charge for the government, was at his odice earlier than usual and wa9 busily engaged in going over the indictments. He denied himself to all callers. Although every effort has been made to keep the public in ignorance of the action to be taken until the papers were ready for presentation by the grand jury it is learned on unquestion ed authority that the jury has voted to return indictments against August W. Maclien, Dillon IX GrofT, Samuel A. Croft, George 13. Lorenz and Mrs. Lorenz, the two latter being residents of Toledo, O. The specific charge, it I understood, will be conspiracy to de fraud the government. The fact that new indictments would be returned against Macben and the Groff brothers has been talked of for some time around the courthouse, but it was not expected that action would be taken so soon. The sensational fea ture of the probable proceedings is the connection of Mrs. Lorenz's name with the transactions which led to the ar rest of Maclien and the Groffs. At the time of the arrests stories were Id circulation that there was a go be- tween, but the information at hand then was not conclusive enough to es tablish the identity of this partleulai party. Whether or not Mrs. Lorenz acted In this capacity is not known, but it va suggested that this go between was a woman. Mill Dlviatona Ileadlee. With the removal by Postmaster General Payne of James T. Metealfe. head of the money order system, the post olflee department is being con ducted without a head in any of it big divisions.

The otlices in Cincinnati, St. Louts, Chicago, Kansas City and New Orleans will be investigated immediately. SULTAN HAS ABDICATED? Unconfirmed Humor Cornel From Con- tauttnonle. Belgrade, June 1!). A telegram received here from Constantinople says that a rev. olution has broken out in Turkey and that the Sultan has abdicated his throne. London, June 19. The report in circu lation In Belgrade that the Sultan has ab dicated cannot be confirmed In diplomatic circles here. An official who reoently re turned from a visit to Constantinople told your correspondent that he doubted if the movement to overthrow the rule of the Sultan had so far advanced, although he believed such a step would not be delayed long. Stray rep trts regarding a possible up rising in Turkey have filtered throuch fcuropean capitals for some time past. In otlieial circles here belief is general that a very unsatisfactory state of affairs exists in 1 urkey, but on account of the rigid censorship enforced by the Sultan, little news is permitted to reach the outside world. Belgrade is impregnated just now with revolutionary notions, and advices from that place regarding Insurrections In Tur key or elsewhere are likely to enlarge up on tne situation.

IS ONE RELIGION AS GOOD AS ANOTHER Subject of Father Sutton's Sermon at St. Monica's Church Last - Evening. A very large crowd attended the lecture given by Lev. Fr. Sutton at St. Monica's church last, evening, the subject being a most interesting one, "is oue religion as good as another'.'" He said, "Oue of the great errors of the age is that religion Is of little or no importance, that it is a matter of nothing what form of religion we pro fess, rope Leo Aill declares that this indifference is the great error of our age. Looking around we imd among our repres entative men, in Congress, among our bus-ine.-s men, our professional men, doctors, lawyers, etc., and among the lower classes, laboring people, etc., what do we find.' Indifference in regard to religion; it is a matter of no importance what they pro fess. We see everywhere people with dif ferent views of religion, mingling together and forming what they callonebody, min isters who profess to be religious teachers, teaching opposite doctrines, exchanging pulpits, etc. We are told it matters not what we believe if we are good and hon est. This proposition is condemned by the Catholic church as false. For God, being our Lord and Master, desires from us a certain amount of worship aud adoration. If -we believe there is a God, and that he created us, we owe to God homage and servioe, by submission to him and his commands. lie is the great benefactor from whom we derive all we receive. We, therefore, must strive to know all he re vealed In this matter. We owe to Him duty, love and obedience. All recognize the existence of God. If, then, God has made known a particular way in which we should worship him. If God has re vealed to man how we are to worship him. we are not free to reject that particular form of worship. God isoue.truth is one. Then where there Is a diversity of relig ious belief, somebody must be wrong. Christ is God, and if He has given a par ticular form of religion it is the true one. lhere must be something deiinite in this matter. Christ would not leave us uncer tain. Did Christ leave His Church in that condition? No he did not. Where will we find the lull and com plete teachings of Christ? Shall we find it in the different denominations scattered about usi' It can be found in the Catholic church alone, there Is the truth of Christ's teachings. He has said he would watch over it and guide it unto the end. He is guiding it, aud has sent the spirit of truth into it. In this church you will hud what Christ wants you to believe, it is His teaching. The Catholic church claims your attention, it courts your investigation. Ex amine the claims of that church. Look into one form of religion, that she is your salvation depends upon belonging to it. rvery form of religion then is not the true one. Only oue God came into the world, only one truth was preached, and it was in this church which dates its origin back to the days of Christ. Subject this evening, "Indulgences.'
