- SECRETARY ROOT
CONTRACT TO BE SIGNED

Five Arbitrator Time for Pay
ment Fixed Friar to Withdraw
Within Tuo Yearn from First Pay
mentThe Ordinary Courts Are to
Decide Concerning the Land Re
tained by the Church, But Claimed
by the Municipalities.
Rome, July 3. Judge W- II. Taft,
civil governor of the Philippine islands
today received a long cable message
from Secretary Root containing the de
partment's final instructions concern
ing the note relating to the disposition
of the Friars lands in the islands which
was drawn up here Tuesday and this
afternoon Major Poreter delivered the
note to Cardinal Rampolla, the papal
secretary of state.
Answering the Vatican's note propos
ing to have the new apostolic delegate
at Manila settle the question of the
religious orders Judge Taft in his note
"Thus would be lost the advantages
expected from a direct contract clearly
determining the principal lines upon
which co-operation between the state
and church may be assuerd."
The note proposes the purchase of
the land of the Dominicans and Au
gustinians at a price to be determined
upon by five arbitrators, two to be
chosen by the United States, two by
the Vatican and one by a neutral, say
the British governor of India.
The price to be paid in Mexican dol
lars, one-third immediately, a third in
nine months and a third in eighteen
months, with interest at four and a
half per cent
Payment to be made to a person
chosen by the Vatican.
The former Spanish crown lands now
in posslssion of the American govern
ment, on which there ore eccelesiasti
cal buildings to be handed to an ec
clesiastical official appointed by the
The ordinary courts to decide con
cerning the land retained by the
church, but claimed by the municipal
ities. The United States to pay an indemn
ity for the building used, by the Ameri
can troops. But nothing Is to be paid
until the title deeds are ia the bands
of the Philippine government
All Friars of the four orders shall
withdraw within two years from the
first payment. No Spanish F-iars may
be substituted for those withdrawn.
The churches, schools and univer
sities may be directed by Spanish
clergy or orders other than those with
drawn, or by clergy of the same or
ders that are not Spanish- It is neces
sary to convince the Filipinos that the
ancient regime of the Spanish Friars is
The note reminds the Vatican thit
the orders still publish a paper in
Manila which is anti-American and
anti-Philippine, but pro-Spanish, and
that the orders possess property in
Manila to the value of nearly six mil
lion Mexican dollars, while that of the
Catholic church is only valued at three
and a half million Mexican dollars.
This is very significant, as the orders
have also a large capital at interest,
besides the land which it is now pro
posed the government should purchase.
To reach the desired object, the best
thing is to prevent any member of the
four withdrawing orders, without dis
tinction of nationality, from being sent
to the islands.
The note ends with calling the at
tention of the Vatican to the clause re
garding religious teaching in the pub
lic schools, saying that Judge Taffs
instructions prevent further discussion
of the matter. It also calls the atten
tion of Cardinal Rampolla to the six
teenth section of the general law for
Philippine schools, a copy of which la
The note is accompanied by the kind
of contract which Judge Taft proposes
will be signed.

President Castro Assumes the Of
fensive Aisnlnst the Veneiuelan
WilemstadU July 7. President Cas
tro, of Venezuela, left Caracas Sunday
night not for Valencia as had previous
ly been announced, but for La Guira,
taking with him his private guard of 500
veteran soldiers and General Ferrer as
chief of staff. The president reached
La Guira at 5 o'clock in the afternoon
and left there at midnight on the
steamer Ossun, his destination being
Guantana or Bariota, about 250 miles
east of La Guira. He intends to reor
ganize the government forces at and
about Barcelona, and assume the of
fensive against the revolutionists at
once. Nobody at Caracas can explain
this change In President Castro's plans
for the step taken is considered to be
as perilous as the invasion of the
Valencia district by . the main army of
the revolutionists. This force will be
opposed by the government army un
der General Seferino Castillo.

GIVES IT TO THE SHERIFF.
Governor Yate Write to Sheriff
Baxter of the Eldorado Trouble.
Springfjeld. 111.. July 7. Governor
Yates today received from Sam Bax
ter, sheriff of Saline county, an an
swer to bis recent letter in which he
reprimanded the officer for his failure
to protest negroes connected with the
colored school at Eldorado, who were
victims of white caps. Baxter alleges
that he did not advise negroes to leave
ami that he did all in his power to pro
tect them and also that he had enlist
ed the aid of the United Stales deputy
marshal- He does not say, however,
that he is endeavoring to bring back
the negroes who have been driven
away with assurances of protection.
Governor Yates, in reply, at once sent
a letter to Sheriff Baxter, in which hf
says: "You deny that you advised any one
to leave your county and assert that
you have done and are now doing all
that is necessary to protect life and
property and personal rights. I sin
cerely hope your statements are cor
rect, and tha tthe report of the assis
tant adjuiant general was erroneous,
but to put it very mildly, there are
several things which indicate that you
certainly have fallen short of your full
duty In this matter. You seem to have
been relying somewhat upon the Unit
ed States deputy marshal to perform
some of your duties and you utterly
failed to respond to my request that
you locate some of Uie parties that
have left and invite them to return,
with the assurance that you will pro
tect them. My demand upon you in
this particular was explicit and I shall
not make It "again, but proceed to com
municate with those parties myself as
rapidly as I can locate them.
"Very truly yours,

Washington, July 7. The navy deJ

the view here that while cud interests

Wilkesbarre. Pa., July 7. With Presi
dent John Mitchell in New York and
all the other miner leaders at Nanticoke
attending the annual convention of
District No. 1 strike headquarters was
an extremely quiet place today. The
ninth week of the suspension of anthra
cite coal mining shows no change in the
situation. There is much speculation
as to what caused Mr. Mitchell to go to
New York. There were several arrests
made in this valley today of persons
accused of intimidating alleged "unfair"
workmen, but the arrests caused no dis
turbance of any kind.
Harry White, of New York, national
secretary of the garment workers union,
who, along with President Mitchell is
a member of the civic federations com
mittee of thirty-six, arrived here today
for a conference with Mr. Mitchell. Mr.
White said he came here to offer to the
miners the co-operation of organized
labor and that he was authorized to
make the offer.

The special train left here about 2

the fire had burned its way through the
entire eastern part of the town and had
only stopped when there was nothing

One entire block of the business por

A number of years ago he was goii.g
by train to on of the smaller towns
of his diocese to hold services. He was

upon the seat facing him was a very
large valise, containing his clerical
vestments. A drummer sitting back of
him, noticing his jaunty traveling cap,
leaned forward and Inauired:
"Traveling man, eh?"
"Yes' answered the bishop.
"What house d'ye represent?"
"The biggest house in the world."
"Shillito's?" (the largest house in
Cincinnati) asked the drummer.
"Bigger than that."
"Bigger than that."
