Ancient Story of Death

CHANGES IN GOSPELS CITED
Freer's Discovery of Egyptian
Papyrus Finally Published.
FIND MADE SIX YEARS AGO
Divergences From Accepted Text
Are Many Much or New Mater

of Fourth or Fifth Century.
LONDON, May 12. (Special.) The
Times prints what it declares is the
first detailed account of the discovery
by Charles L. Freer, of Detroit, Mich.,
of the Egyptian manuscript of the gos
pels, a fac simile of which has been
presented to the British Museum by
the University of Michigan. The man
uscript, which is now in Washington,
gives most valuable and most ancient
stories of the death of Christ and is
supposed to date from the fourth or
fifth century. There is much impor
tant new , material in the manuscript,
particularly in the Gospels of St. John
and St. Luke, while the 16th chapter of
St. Mark, who told the great story of
the Passion, contains verses which ap
pear in no other manuscript.
New Veraea Appear.
After verse 14 in ttils chapter, which
reads: "At length he appeared to the
eleven as they were at table and he
upbraided them with their incredulity
and hardness of heart, because they did
not believe them who had seen him
after he had risen again," the manu
script goes on: "And they -excused
themselves by saying this age of law
lessness and unbelief is under Satan,
who through the agency of unclean
spirits suffers not the true power of
God to be apprehended. For this
cause, said they unto Christ, reveal
now at once thy righteousness. And
Christ said to them, the limit of the
years of the power, of Satan, is not ful
filled, but it draweth near." (The text

A preliminary account of the manu
script was published some six years

BULLETS TO RIDDLE

TARGET FOR BIG FIGHTERS.
Navy Department Decides on Like
Fate for Sister Ships Ma.-suchu-setts
and Indiana, Is Report.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, May 12. Naval officers having-
failed in their effort to have the bat
tleship Oregon sold as Jnnk, now pro
pose to use her, as well as her sister
ships, the Indiana and the Massachu
setts, as targets, to be fired upon by
the heavy batteries of modern Dread
noughts, as was the old battleship
Texas a year or two ago.
Inasmuch as the Oregon is no longer
on the active Navy list and is regarded
as obsolete by naval experts, it is
doubtful If this historic ship ever again
will be called upon for service in bat
tie. Because of this fact,"" ordnance ofn
cers are desirous of using her for a
target, In order that naval experts can
gather additional information as to the
effect of modern projectiles from mod
ern guns, upon heavily armored war
If this recommendation is carried out
it Is probable that the Massachusetts
and Indiana will first be shot to pieces
and the Oregon- will be preserved long
enough to lead the procession through
the Panama Canal,
The Navy Department announces
that if these ships are used as targets
their names will be changed before
they are dismantled and towed to sea,
and that ultimately modern Dread
noughts, yet to be authorized by Con
gress, will be given names of the states
for which these three ships were named
Unless sentiment interferes, this latest
plan of the Navy Department is likely
to be carried out.

The passenger train was flagged a
