France Suppresses Religious Schools.
Last Monday night tho French
Chamber of Deputies by tho decisive
majority of 31G to 269 passed tho
government bill for the suppression
of all forms of teaching by tho reli
gious order. This supplements and
completes the work begun by the ex
Premier, M. Waldeck-Rousseau, in
'The first law suppressed the un
authorized teaching orders, which had
for a long time carried on their voca
tion despite tho lack of legal sanc
tion, but the new law does not mako
any distinction between authorized
and unauthorized congregations, but
sweeps away the whole fabric of
teaching by religious orders, thus in
effect substituting the system of state
schools for those heretofore conduct
ed by the orders.
The Parliamentary battlo over the
bill was one of the severest which the
Chamber of Deputies has seen in
The bill forbids all teaching by the
religious orders in tho territory of
France proper, and provides for tho
suppression within ten years of all
orders actively holding an authoriza
tion to teach.
An amendment, which was carried .
despite the wishes of Premier Combes,
renders the measure inapplicable to
the colonies, but as the- Premier was
careful to point out in the final de-!
bate, this does not affect the power
conferred on the government by the
law of 1901 of closing such schools
in the colonies by decree.
The existing congregations are pro
hibited from recruiting new members,
and their novitiates are accordingly
suppressed at once, with the excep
tion of a few which are destined sole
ly for the purpose of trainings
teachers for services in the colonies.
Severe penalties attach to any at
tempt to evade these provisions.
The Northern Pacific railroad ha3
granted clear title to nearly 1000
settlers upon the overlapping grants
of the Northern Pacific in the Clarke,
Cowlitz and Skamania counties, in the
state of Washington, whose title to
the lands they are occupyingjhas been
in litigation for a dozen years or
more, at last to be established in the
fall and undisputed ownership of
Happily for the settlers, the rail
road company has decided upon a
policy of broad liberality and has de
cided that no bona-fide settler who
acquired his holdings prior tp the
passage of the Wilson act and still
occupies them shall be disturbed in
his possession, but shall be at liberty
to obtain full title from the govern
ment. It will be necessary for him
to follow the procedure required in
every case where government land is
taken up, but beyond this there will
be no obstacle to perfecting title.
Here speculators who have acquired
color of title without actual occupan
cy of the land, and settlers who
have entered since the Wilson act
was passed, will receive less consider
ation, through even with themHhe
railroad proposes to deal generously.
hey will have opportunity to buy
from the railroad at prices based up
on a valuation of the land as unim
proved and without reference to any
improvements that may have been
placed upon it.

On Monday Boris Sarafoff, the
Macedonian leader, stated that the
Macedonian insurgents had decided
not te raise a rebellion in tho spring.
The delay is for the purpose of giv
ing the powers an opportunity to
carry out tho proposed reforms.
Sarahoff says this decision wa3
reached on tho advice of menus m

the Balkans, all of whom have given
assurances that the powers are anx
ious to prevent further bloodshed and
are earnestly endeavoring to seo that
the reforms promised are fulfilled to
Niu Chwang, March 30 Under a strong repre
sentation made by United States Consul Henr' B.
Miller that the civil administrator had invaded neu
tral rights when he ordered the lowering of the Amer
ican flag from buildings belonging to American citi
zens, even though it was done through the appreheu
sion that the flag was illegally used by Chinese for the
purpose of resisting police inspection, the civil admin
istrator has promised, duly and in proper form through
the military, to raise the flag over the building from
which it was removed. The British flag, which was
ordered taken down, will also be allowed to remain.
, The removal of the flag, which was flying over
the quarters of tho American correspondents, caused
much iudiguation among them, and they threatened
to complaiu to the United States Minister at Pekin.
St. Petersburg March 30. The Russian gov
ernment issued a declaration today that after the re
cent Japanese proceedings, the Korean ports can no
longer be regarded by Russia as neutral.
The declaration was precipitated by the fact of

London, March 30. A dispatch from Niu
Chwang today states that excitement of serious order
prevails there owing to two causes, the first being the
aspect of Russia toward the United States as displayed
iu the recent act of hauling down the stars and stripes.
A vigorous protest was renewed yesterday against
the unusual action to American Consul Miller . which
resulted in the Russians making a tentative restora
tion of the flag on all buildings from which they were
removed. This, for the time being, has the effect of
restoring a certain degree of confidence, but the feel
ing against the Czar's forces and officers is bitteily
The second cause of excitement is from a report
that the Japanese are determined to land forces there
and lhat already five transports are enroute for that
place. That the report is authentic is taken from the
activity of the P ussians iu prepariug and strengthen

In order that I may accomplish "the
greatest good to the pjeateit number"
of Indian War Veterans, their widows,
or in case of the death of these, their
b irs, I will ask any and every person
who can do so to pre me Uie name not
only of the tivinc veterans, or widows,
bat :.ll who may hare died since the
doso id the Rogue River War in 1S58
To those who may consider this a
strange request, I will explainer eayiDp,
that I hare no doubt that tho Ibt'o'f C35
names of veterans who have money dee
them, and of which I wrote yon some
time since, contains the names of many
vetrans who have passed away and the
money is with tho Auditor of the Treas
ury awaiting an owner. I could recite
number of rases of this kind where I
have hooted up the owners who dsd not
know of the surprise in store for them.
When possible to do so give the name of
the captain of tbe company, if this can
not be done tend the veterans proper
name. I wilt then search the records

is world wide is announced for a lecture
in this c'ty April C. In comparatively
few years he has come to be recognized
as the most orixmal and forceful car
toonist in American journalism, and so
great i the popularity of his work that
his original drawings are eagerly sought
for by all sorts and conditions of people.
At the height of adverse criticism on the
candidacy of Admiral Dewey for Presi
dent, DAvenport drew a picture of the
gallant old admiral standing on the
bridge of tho Olympia, and with the
smoke of tho battlw of Manila Bay flying
thick nl'otit him. Beneath it wore the
words ' Lest We Forget." Tho effect of
the cartoon was instantaneous. It
brought Dewey letters from hundreds of
admirers all over tho country, and so
great was the attention it attracted that
its author was requested to send it to
Washington to bo placed on exhibition.
The request was complied with and the
picture drew such a crowd that the
jiolice finally ordered it taken from the
window in which it was displayed.
John R McLean brother-in-law of Ad
miral Dewey afterward offered for it a
price that surprisea uavenport into
ogreemg to part witn it aitnougn it
had been his intention to keep It. in his
collection. Other cartoonshave brought
him no less renown, and even the pub
lic men whom he has most often impal

sought for his pictures to keep as me
