Question in Canada.
Excommunication for Catholics Who
Give Aid to Those Who Would
Abolish ..Parochial Schools.
Winnipeg, April 18. Nothing since
the beginning of the Catholio school
struggles in this country has created a
greater sensation than, the announce
ment of the Catholio archbishop that
those Catholics who henceforth lend
their aid and influence to those who
would , abolish Catholio parochial
schools will be excommunicated. A
number of prominent Catholics have,
during the struggle of the church, ex
pressed themselves in favor of a na
tional school system..." : - 1
At first it was thought to be a move
on the part of the ;arohbishop, and
done without authority of Monsignore
Satolli or the pope, but today it was
learned Archbishop Langivin's action
is based on advices from Rome. It is
understood the archbishop last week re-,
oeived a papal encyclical .on the sub
ject. This reviews the school matter,
and points out that the case in, the
United States and Canada is not ' anal
ogous. In Canada! and particularly in
Manitoba, it points out that . Catholio
schools were guaranteed by treaty and
constitution, while no such guarantee
was given in the United- States. . The
parochial sohools belong to Manitoba
Catholics by right of .treaty; it declares,
and on this ground affirms that the
Catholics who continue to lend their
aid to those who would take away these
rights shall not be received into com
munion with the church. . Archbishop
Langivih, speaking on - the matter, was
emphatic These were his words: -
"The hierarchy of the Catholio
church has spoken. ; All those- who do
not follow the hierarchy are not Cath
olics. When the hierarchy has spoken,
there is no use for any,' Catholio to say
the contrary, for, if he does, he is no
longer a Catholic. Such a man may
carry the title, but I declare this as
an archbishop I say, and I say it with
plain authority, a Catholio ; who does
not follow the hierarchy on the sohool
question isno more a Catholic. ' And
who- will be the one . to entitle such a
one to the name of Catholic? Where
i is the society which will give him au
thority to call himself a Catholio, when
I, in my 'authority as a Catholio bishop
declare that such a man has no right to
the name? Let us repeat; The . Cath
olio hierarchy has not the; slightest de
sire to govern the country, as has been
freely and falsely charged, for we are
bound by the law, and will submit to
the law, -as -every one else must. ' In
God we trust that is our, motto; -We
stand by the constitution of the coun
try, but we will , have - no Godless
" It is reported that a meeting of Cath
olio dignitaries will soon - be held in
New York ' city to discuss and take
some action on the' Manitoba sohool
question. The church in Manitoba is
expecting'- some: aid in-their ohurch
affairs in the United States, and, al
though Monsignore Satolli's jurisdic
tion may not extend to Manitoba,, it is
understood Catholics here think he will
throw his influence in their behalf.

Two Letters From Secretary Gresham
to Ambassador Bayard.
Washington, April 18. The only
reference in the published correspond
ence of the state department, for 1894
touching the Venezuelan boundary dis
pute is found in two letters addressed
by Secretary Greshdm to' Ambassador
Bayard at London. One is dated July
18 last, but the other is dated Decem
ber 10. , ' The. first begins: '
"During your incumbenoy of the
office of secretary of state you became
acquainted with a long-pending con
troversy between Great Britain and
Venezuela, concerning the boundary
between that republio and British
Guinea. . The reoourse to arbitration
was proposed in 1881, having been sup
ported by your predecessor, and was in
turn advocated by yon in a spirit of
friendly regard for the two nations in
volved. In the meantime .successive
advances of British settlers in the re
gion admittedly in dispute were fol
lowed by similar advances of .; British
colonial administration, contesting and
supplanting Venezuelan claims to exer
cise authority therein.- , '- ' 1 '
"Toward the end of 1887, the Brit
ish territorial claim which had, it
seems, increased by some 8,000 square
miles between 1885 and 1888, took an
other comprehensive sweep westward
to embrace the rich mining district of
Yuruari, as far as Guaoipiti, and this
called for your instructions to Mr.
Phelps of February 17, 1888, respect
ing the 'widening pretentions of Brit
ish Guinea to possess territory over
which- Venezuelan jurisdiction had
never theretofore been disputed.
"Since then repeated efforts have
been made by Venezuela, as a directly
interested party, and by the United
States, as the impartial friend of both
countries, to bring about a resumption
of diplomatic relations, which had
been suspended in consequence of the
dispute now under consideration. The
proposition, to resume such relations
had, however, been intimately bound
up with the ultimate question of arbi
tration. Until recently Venezuela had
insisted on' joining to the agreement
to arbitrate a stipulation for the restor
ation of the status quo of 1850, pending
the proposed arbitration; but it seems
this condition is now abandoned. ; On
the other hand, Great Britain has on
several occasions demanded, as a pre:
liminary to an understanding touching
arbitration, that Venezuela shall defi
nitely abandon all claim to a larger
part of the territory in dispute, and
limit the eventual' arbitration to that
portion only to which Great Britain
has more recently made claim. "
Secretary Gresham goes on to give at
length a history of the various attempts
that have been made by - the United
States and . by Venezuela herself to
bring out a - settlement by arbtitration
of this dispute, bringing it down to
October 8,' 1893, where it now rests,
when he says: , 1
"The president is inspired by a de
sire for a peaceable and honorable ad
justment of the existing difficulties be
tween an American state and a power
ful transatlantic nation, and would be
glad to see the re-establishment of such
diplomatic " relations between them as
would promote that end., ', .
"I can discern but two equitable so
lutions to the present controversy. XDne
is the arbitral determination of the
rights of disputants as respective suc
cessors to the historical rights of Hol
land and Spain over the region in ques
tion. The other is to create a new
boundary line in accordance with the
dictates of mutual expediency and con
sideration. The two governments have
been so far unable to agree on a con
ventional line. The consistent and con
spicuous advocacy by the United States
and England of the prinoiple of arbi
tration, and their reoourse thereto in
the settlement of important , questions
arising between them have - made-such
a mode of adjustment especially -appropriate
in the present t instance, and this
government will gladly do what it can
to furnish a determination in that
sense. With these considerations, I
commit the matter-in--your hands, leav
ing to yourself any .conventional -oppor
tunity to' advance "the adjustment of
the dispute in questioift'"' '. -.' t
In this letter of last December, Sec
retary Gresham thus addressed? Mr.'
Bayard:-r: '".":' ';!"'.' ':.;':'-'?. ,::'-' ':
. "In conference with Senor Andred
during your , Visit" here,' r he 'doubtless
expressed thet earnest desire of his gov
ernment for a speedy determination . of
the question by arbitration. . I cannot
believe her majesty's government will
maintain that, the validity ' of - their
claim to territory long in dispute be
tween the two countries shall be con
ceded as a condition precedent to the
arbitration of the question'', whether
Venezuela is ehtitlod to other territory,
which, until a recent period, was never
in doubt. Our interest in the question
has been shown by our friendly efforts
to enter ink) a settlement alike honora
ble to both countries, and the president
is pleased to know that Veneznela is
able to renew her efforts to bring about
such an adjustment.
. "It is not doubted that you will dis
cretely exert your influence in favor of
some plan of honorable settlement

Missing Blanche Lamont,: Murdered
Minnie Williams' Friend, Suffered
a Like Fate in the Church.
San Franoisco, April 16. The Eman
uel Baptist ohuroh on Bartlett street,
between Twenty-second and Twenty
third, in this city, has been tne scene
of two of the most atrocious murders
ever committed in the state. - Yester
day the mutilated and murdered Min
nie Williams was found in the library
of the edifice. Today the dead body of
Blanche Lamont was found : in the
tower of the same church. The same
Band the authorities believe, slew both
girls, and W. H. T. Durant, the young
man suspected of both crimes, is now
in custody.
Blanche Lamont and Minnie Will
iams 1 were members of the Emanuel
Baptist'; church ' and ' members of the
Sunday school class. , The former was
a pupil at the normal school on Powell
street in this city; the latter was a
companion in a family in Alemeda,
across the bay from tie city. Both
were 21 years old, brunettes, and pret
ty, modest girls. Both had been re
cipients of attentions from a young
medical student named Durant, who is
also librarian of the church, and secre
tary of the Young People's Society of
the church. '
April 8 Miss Lamont disappeared.
Diligent search failed to reveal a trace
of, her whereabouts, and her aunt, Mrs.
Noble, with whom she had been living,
was totally unable to throw any light
on the affair." .Miss Lamont came from
Dillon, Mont," several months ago,
having' been sent to San Francisco for
her health, and at the same time to . at
tend the normal school to perfect her
self as a teacher. The last person seen
in her oompany was Durant, the young
medical student, who, it appears," had
been oh friendly terms with the miss
ing girL . ;
Saturday morning at 11 o'clock the
mutilated body of Minnie ' Williams
was found in the library of the Eman
uel Baptist church. : r ,The girl had been
assaulted and her remains had been cut
and hacked, the girl evidently having
died from the loss of blood. On fur;
ther examination 'it was found that she
had been gagged, the assailant tearing
part of her underclothing and thrusting
it down her throat with a sharp stick,
badly lacerating the tongue. Two wit
nesses state that they saw a young man
and young woman entering the church,
the former" answering the- descrip
tion of Durant, and the latter that of
Minnie - Williams.' 1 Following ' this!
clew, the police at once put the resi
dence of ' Durant under surveillance.
Chief Crowley, in speaking of the
case tonight, after detailing the cir1-'
cuinstances of Miss Williams' disap
pearance last Friday , night, and the
fact that a person answering Durant s i
description had been seen entering the
churoh'with a woman who answers
Miss Williams' description, said; V
"Durant made his appearance at Dr. ;i
Vogel's house at about 9:80 or" 1.0 P. I
M. , remaining there until about . J 1:80.
Dr. Vogel states that at ..the time
Durant arrived at his house he . noticed
that ; Durant was somewhat exer?
oised, and that great beads of perspirap
tion came from his forehead, '- His hair
was dissheveled, and he asked Dr. VogV
el'a permission to wash his' hands and
comb his hair before he - made his ap
pearance where the young people were;-'
statmg to the doctor that he had ; gust'
returned from "the signal'- Corps, ' and
consequently his hands were dirty.'
He afterward came down stairs, and
during the evening read a letter pur
porting to'ome from his sister, in Ger
man, and after -reading the letter he
seemed more composed. - 1 " - -
; The Rev. J. George Gibson, the pas-tot-
of the Emanuel'Ohuroh, -has -made a"
written statement to the press denying
rumorB:'that''he atany'-tinie'' sought' td'
hav'e' the 'finding of the murdered 'body'
of Minnie Williams kept quite';';or that '
he was in hiding, or that he slept in
the church. ' He also tells how he came
to find the body, in company with lady
members of the. church. He Says he re
fused to see reporters because he wanted

Great Row at a Lecture in San Francisco
Over Religious Matters. '
San Franoisco, April 17. Turmoil,
hisses and cries of "shamel" prevailed
at the meeting of the Congregational
Monday Club today, in the auditorium
of the Young Men's Christian Associa
tion building, when the Rev. C. Q.
Brown, pastor of the First Congrega
tional church, told the ; Rev. . George
Herron, professor of appiied theology,
at Iowa college, Grinnell, la. , that he
was an anarchist So tumultuous grew
the audience,composed of clergymen and
laymen, that the reverend gentleman
had to cease his address of excoriation.
The clergy of the Protestant denomina
tions of San Franoisco had been in
vited to be present at Professor ' Her
ron's lecture on the "Christian State,''
when the latter said: -
. "In spite of all we can say,- Protest
antanism is losing and Romanism is
gaining ground in the United States."
"That's not true," exclaimed Dr.
Brown, who was sitting near the plat
form. .There was a visible sensation
among the audienoe at these words, but
Professor Herron continuedoalmly:
' "In spite of all statistics, Romanism
is gaining. ' I tell you, friends, ' that
God will curse this divided Christian
ity." ' ' "..
The Rev. Brown then obtained per'
mission to make, an address. He start
ed in with personal allusions, which
provoked another row. Finally a vote
was taken, and it was ruled that the
Rev. Brown must leave the platform,
but before doing so he made the follow-,
ing sarcsatio remarks: ,
"I anticipated this, and I thank you
for your advertisement of my next Sun
day's sermon. I will then and there
revive the' teachings of Dr. Herron,.
whom I deem an anarchist " . !
With these words Dr. Brown with
drew to the accompaniment of cries of
shame and loud hisses. . . '
Baby Oelrlchs Contest Against ' His
- Mother, Uncle and Niece.
San Francisco, April 17. Another
queer complication has arisen in the
Fair will contest. The. Fair ohildren,
Mrs. Herman Oelrichs, Miss Virginia
Fair and Charles Fair have instituted a
contest of the first will of their father,
whioh left his immense properties in
the hands of the executors appointed
by him, and they have petitioned the
court to have the will produced by Mrs.
Craven, which leaves, the property to
the children without reservation, de
clared genuine. Now comes Van R.'
Paterson, who was appointed . by the
court to represent the minor heirs,
among whom is Herman Oelrichs, jr. ,
grandson of James G. Fair, with a pe
tition' to haye the Craven declared
fraudulent and to have the first will de
clared the only original and proper will.
Although this application on behalf of
Baby Oelrichs is against the interests
of his parents, they have nothing to say
in the matter, as Paterson holds the au
thority of the court to represent- their
child, as well as the other minor heirs.

Its Property Will Be Sold to
- the Highest Bidder. 4
Judge Showalter, of Chicago, Says That
the Trust No Longer Has a
; i.' '' Legal Existence. ;. W .'-' 't
Chicago, Aprili 15. The properties
of the whisky trust will be" Bold to the
highest bidder. Judge Showalter, of
the United States cirouit court, in an
order issued today admitted that the
trust had no longer a legal existenoe.
Its board of directors was charged with
having deserted its trusteeship; that it
had no quorum, and any election of a
new board would not enable it to reac
quire the property from the reoeiver.
The court directed that the receiver sell
the property, and" that the proceeds be
distributed among those entitled there
to." ' The attorneys for the Greenhut
faction and for the stockholders con
sented to the action of the court. , '
The bill upon whioh the order was
based begins with a recital that the
last meeting of the board of directors
was held February 1. , Since the di
rectors have abandoned their trust and
paid no attention to . its affairs, it
olaims, the sole management has been
in the hands of John McNulta receiver.
The resignation of Nelson Morris left
the board consisting of Greenhut, Ho
bart, Greene, Freiberg, Hennessy and
Beggs. April 8, the complainants aver,
Hobart, Greene and Freiberg resigned.
There are but three directors -left, and
the hill alleges that they do not consti
tute a quorum; that they cannot fill the
vacancies. The bill then recites : that
the attorney -general of the state by quo
warranto proceedings, attacked the
charter of the trust, and the courts held
that it was forfeited, and the issue is
now pending before the supreme court
of the state. - - The prayer of the bill on
which the order was granted by Judge
Walter is as follows: , .-, ' , .
i "That by an order entered herein the
said John McNulta may be appointed
receiver of all the property and effects
of said defendant-, company, and in
vested with full title thereto as receivr.
er, and that ' all, of " the 'officers, 'man
agers, superintendents, agents and em-
ployes of said defendant oompany shall
be required forthwith to deliver up to
such receiver the possession of each and
every part of said', property, wherever
situated, and also all books and ac
counts, vouchers and papers in any way
relating to its business or the operation
thereto, or an injuncton to restrain each
and every officer, director, superinten
dent, manager, agent and employe of
said defendant from in any way inter
fering with the possession and control
of said reoeiver over said property, and
that at such time as may be found just
and proper, the property of said defend
ant may be ordered to be sold and the
proceeds distributed among those en
titled thereto. " . . ; . :
