THE PLAINDEALER MA KG 11 12. 1800. 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 school system." 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.

The Opera House was filled to its ut most capacity last night, the orchestral space and aisle being provided with chairs till every available room for seat was occupied, to bear the eilrer tongued orator. Rev. Ray Palmer, lec tore upon "Tho Enemies ot Liberty." Mr. ralmer labored to show the aim, object and par pore of the Roman hie rarchy is to rulo the world, both reli giontly and temporally. Tothisoad he quoted the declarations of several popes 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 tory and the sayings of many eminent men who regard tho policy of the rati can as inimical to the liberty of con science. The lecturer, speaking for the A. P. A V. declared that they are not intolerant and prescriptive of Catholics 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." His lecture was interspersed with an ecdotes aptly illustrating the peculiar points of his discourse, thus amusing and entertaining his bearers as well as in 6tructing them. citv and will bo gone several days, to further inspect and develop their mine Wo may anticipate marvelous results from this vinit It is doubtloss rich riust Not Interfere. 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 speech. 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 here. The Cuban discussion ended and Tur- pie took the tloor on the Dupont case. Hoar's resolution introduced yesterday providing that the Cuban question go over until April 6, went over until to morrow. Hoar said he was in poor hejlth and unable to speak today. RIDDLE. Mr. Hunt, a photographer, is camped in tewn near the post office. Dr. Flannagan of the Pass was. in Rid dle Saturday.
