Offense Lay In Criticizing Action of
Church In Italy and
ROME, April 17, Fattier Romolo Murrl,
loader of the Catholic Democrats, has
been suspended ad divlnis by the Pope
for disobeying papal Instructions regard
ing the behavior of the clergy. The pun
ishment inflicted on Father Murrl has
aroused more or less excitement, princi
pally among the Liberal Catholics.
Father Murrl's offense consisted of severe
criticism of the action of the church in
Italy as well as comment on the French
situation, especially the Montagnini docu
ments. The suspension means that Father
Murrl may not exercise his clerical office
or administer and enjoy the fruits of his

that In 1902 the Pope, who was then
patriarch of Venice, had occasion to re
buke Fnthor Murrl for certain writings.
Father Murrl thereupon wrote a Strongly
worded letter to the patriarch saying he
expressed an opinion about writings
which perhaps he had not read. He
added that he could not permit such
criticism and asked for an apology.

with energy certain new ideas which, he
said, threatened to bring about rebellion

GIVE INVENTORS FAIR PLAY
House of Commons Protects British
LONDON, April 17. The patents and
designs bill, which amends the existing
patent laws and the main object of
which is to prevent the patent laws
from being used for the hindrance and
suppression of British industrial de
velopment, unanimously passed its sec
ond reading in the House of Commons
today. Both Bides strongly supported
the government. The trend of the de
bate was that this country had lost
various industries because foreigners
were permitted to patent inventions
here and to work them abroad, which
prevented their being utilized In the
Vnited Kingdom. Some of the speak
ers, however, feared that Inventors of
moderate means would suffer from the
imposition of charges that they could
David Lloyd George, president of the
Board of Trade, expressed satisfaction
with the debate, and explained that the
government desired to give every facil
ity to the poor inventor. He pointed
out that the bill contained a clause
"covering the remarkable contracts"
which had been forced upon the boot
and shoe industry by American manu
facturers of machinery, and which, if
enforced, would act seriously in re
straint of trade. The speaker said he
believed this bill would secure fair play
for the British manufacturer and in
ventor, and this was all they wanted.
