Mr. Palmer's Lecture.
The Opera House was packed to its
utmost capacity Tuosday night to hoar
Uov. Roy Palmer lecture upon "The
Heroes of tho Nineteenth Century." Air
Palmer spoke for two hour?, holding tho
vast audience, in rant attention. Ho
poured a broadside into tho political
schemers, who have resorted to trickery
and cajolery to eeryo their own selfish
purposes. He favored u full and coin
pletc separation of churrh and stato. lie
favored taxing church property, saying:
"If Christianity can't stand on its own
merits, let it go down." This sentiment
was applaudod by tbo entire audience,
lie also said: "Baptist at I am, believ
ing in the doctrine of my church, deep
down in my bcait, I would not favor my
church having full control of the public
Commenting on tbo attitude of the
Ctholic church ton aid our public school
system, Mr. Palmer read extracts from
the utterances of Catholics of high ecle
eiastical authority, which, if correct, (and
he cited authority of several), shows that
our public school system is menaced by
that church. The speaker thought that
Satoli should go back to Italy and edu
cate his own pple, 70 per cent of whom
he said can neither read nor writo, in
stead of coming hero to destroy oar edu
cational sysiem ny substituting the pa
rochial for our public schools.

Pius VII, Gregory XVI, Piusl IX. and
Leo XIII, reading portions of their ency
clicle letters and other utterances of bigli
authority in the church, ehowiug their
views of reliciou and civil liberty. His
lecture abounded in quotations from his

A. P. A V. declared that they are not

on account of their religion, but were
only opposed to their getting control,
a religious body, of the secular power of
the nation ; and not only are they op
posed to tho Catholics but to any re
ligious body having full control of tho
civil government. He is opposed to pub
lic money being appropriated to any
ecclesiastical bodies, and that church
property should be taxed should pay
its portion for legal protection. "That
Christianity must stand upon its own
legs or die."

Wabuisoton, March 10, As soon ns
tho senate journal had been read, Lodge
rose to a question of personal privilege.
Ho sent to tho desk and had read I ho
Spanish minister's referenco in an inter
view to Lodge's utterances, calling in
question the translation of a statement
attributed to General Woylor, in which
latter declared ho would "exterminate"
the insurgents. Lodge said the literal
rendering of Weyler's language would
bo that ho would "clean out" tho largo
insurgent bands and "exlerminato" the
small ones. Lodgo said ho did not won
der at tho extreme sensitiveness of the
Spanish people, but ho did not think
this offered an excuse for tho .Spanish
minister adopting tho coureo he had.
It was pretty well established that the
donates in tho scnato and houso wore
purely domestic mailers, and it was not
proper for a representative of a foreign
country to communicate with them ex-
ept through tho state department. If
American minister in Europe dis
cussed political affairs there, he would
bo sent home.
Lodge then read from a letter of Daniel
Webster's, when secretary of state, pro
testing against the statement by an Aus
trian minister as to a domestic matter.
The senator added a most emphatic pro
test against public comment by any diplo
matic repreaontativo on the debates of
congress, ihe conttitution protectee
the senators in language used in debate.
It was ono of the safeguards of free
Gray said the United States should
proceed according to the judgment of a
self respecting nation, unmoved by em
eutedat Valencia or Madrid, and without
beiug turned aside to discuss the ques
tion of a translation between senator and
minister. Gray said hb would ho quick
to resent an attack on the privileges of a
senator, but in nil fairness he thought it
hardly worth while to stretch senatorivl
prerogatives and privileges in order to
jueslion a gentleman who had no power
to reply in behalf of Spain. There
should be eome concession to tho stress
of tho situation.
Teller raid the rule was unvarying
against communications by a foreign
minister except throughout the Blate de
partment. Twice had a foreigu minister
been sent home for statements of less
in port a nee than this.
But considering tho circumstances,"
added Teller, "had I been in authority I
would not havo sent him home for this
offence, but I would have had the secre
tary of state iu a most kiudly way sug
gest that repetition of the offeu&e would
lead to hi going home."
There was no probability that Spain
would dissent in an ofiensive way to the
jtaesase of the pending resolutions. Tel
ler said Spain knew we had right to
recoguire the belligerents. Spain would
naturally show some feeling, but she
would not go to war. There was a ripple
of applause, which the vice-president
checked when Teller referred to his sj m-
pathy with I ho Cubans.
"I would be delighted if the insurgents
had run the Spanish soldiers into the
sea." But, the senator added, he telt no
irritation over the student ebullitions in
paiu. Iu conclusion Teller vigorously
asserted that the American people would
not tolerate any dictation or critism
from foreign representatives accredited

pie took the tloor on the Dupont case.
