POPE DISPLEASED WITH SECT
Recalls Invitation for Audience
Call on King Arranged for Saturday,
on Pope for Monday, With Talk,
to Methodists Sandwiched on
Sunday Proselyting Galls.
ROME. Feb. 6. The visit to Rome of
Charles W. Fairbanks, ex-Vice-President
of the United States, brought about a.
delicate situation because of the .fact
that he wished to pay his respects to the
Kinp, to the Pope, and to the American
By a tactful arrangement Mr. Fair
banks' audience with King Victor
Emanuel was fixed for Saturday and that
with the Pope for Monday. But when
everything seemed satisfactorily planned
the Vatican announced that it would be
impossible for .his holiness to receive the
ex-Vice-President if he carried out hia
Intention of speaking in the American
Methodist Church here,- because the
Methodists had be'n active in proselyting
among the Catholics.
Attempt Made to Avoid Hitch.
Negotiations were" immediately begun
to avoid any unpleasantness and in these
negotiations prominent Vatican officials
exerted every Influence to remove the dif
ficulties that had unexpectedly presented
themselves to Mr. Fairbanks audience
with the Pope.
Rut Mr. Fairbanks finally declared that,
although he was animated by a strong
desire to pay his respects to the head of
the Catholic Church, he couldnot vwlth-
draw from his promise to deliver an ad
dress before the American Methodist
Dinner by Catholic College.
Mgr. Kennedy, rector of the American
College (Catholic), gave a dinner at noon
in honor of Mr. Fairbanks. The hall was
decorated with American flags. Among
those present were 144 American students.
Mr. Fairbanks, in rising, gave a toast
to the Christian church, making no dis
tinction of denomination. He declared
that the Catholic Church had accom
plished great things for God and - hu
manity, while past prejudices against the
Catholics had entirely dlsapeared, for
they were ever at the front when the
integrity of the country needed to be
defended or its dignity to be upheld.
Speech to Methodist Important.
At the American Methodist Church Mr.
Fairbanks' address acquired exceptional
Importance, because of the incident with
the Vatican, and it is looked upon as his
final answer to the conditions imposed
upon him relative to his audience with
the Pope. Mr. Fairbanks saids
'It is impossible to emphasize too
strongly the good work the Christian
church is doing in all lands, and amongst
all nationalities. It is gratifying that
the American churches established in all
countries are asserting a wider influence
today than ever in their history.
Christianity Is democratic.
"The agitation groingr on in the polit
ical, social and economic worlds is due
o Christianity breaking down the castes
and prejudices and lifting mankind to a
higher plane. The democratic idea taking
root in political institutions is due to the
expanding influence of Christianity.
"All Christian churches are worthy of
support. Let the Catholics and the
Protestants of all denominations vie in
carrying forward the work of the Mas
ter which is worthy of the best in them

Alleged Sales of Liquor In Omaha
After Hours to Be Brought
LINCOL.X, Neb., Feb.' 6. (Special.)
The Nebraska Anti-Saloon League has
filed . a complaint with Mayor Dahlman
and members of the excise board at
Omaha charging violations of the state
law in that city and promising to make
formal complaint to Governor Shallen
berger if alleged sales after hours con
tinue. Two months ago Mayor Dahlman and
others were summoned to appear before
the Governor and explain why they had
permitted hot el bars and saloons to re
main open after 8 o'clock. Denial was
then made that law violations were con
nived at by municipal authorities.
Nebraska statutes permit the Governor
to begin ouster proceedings against any
municipal officer who is negligent in his
enforcement of the law. -
Proof of the more recent alleged trans
gressions have not yet been filed with
Governor Shallenberger and there is
speculation as to the course he will pur
sue. Complaint places the Governor in
an embarrassing position from the fact
that Mayor Dahlman is his most prom
inent rival for Democratic nomination for
Governor, and while members of the
Anti-Saloon League have been applaud
ing the Governor's activity in prosecuting
law violations, they have lost no oppor
tunity in opposing Mayor Dahlman's po

Her distrust of the savings banks and
her confidence m the strength of her
stocking as a depository for her life-time
savings, amounting to $1160, has caused
Mrs. Thomas McNallen, a widow with
three small children, to lose her fortune.
Mrs. McNallen, who now ridicules her
own scorn of banks, appealed to the po

ington, Feb. 4. Congress is not groins
to give President Taft everything- he

serious opposition that is expected to

go cannot be determined at this time,
for the committees handling the con
servation bills have had little oppor

duced at the request of Secretary Bal
