Catholic Dignitary Shows How Rolig-
ions Will Figure at Conference.
Rome, March 6 .- Monsignor
Benigni, under secretary of state
in the Vatican administration dur
ing part of the pontificate of
Pope Pius X, has written an ar
ticle for the Nuova Antologia Re
view on the question of the par
ticipation of the holy see in the
.peace conference which is expec
t ted to be held at the conclusion
of the war.
Replying to one of the objec
tions raised by the Italian press
against the intervention of papal
delegates namely that the heads
of all other churches would claim
a similar right of representation,
Monsignor Benigni says that all
heads of religions should, and a
great majority of them will, in
evitably be represented at the
prospective conference, as. not
the archbishop of Canterbury,
but the king of England, is the
head of the established church of
that country, the emperor of
Russia is head of the Orthodox
Greek church of Russia, the king
of Prussia is head of the Evan
gelical church of Prussia and the
sultan of Turkey and the emperor
of .Japan are heads of the domi
nant religions of their empires.
