ROME, Dor. 16.—Thousands of demon-
strators friendly to France and anti-
Vaticans tonight gathered In the piazza
adjoining the Farnese Palace, the seat
of the French embassy, in an endeavor
to express their pleasure at France's ac-
tion toward the Church.
The whole garrison of Rome was em-
ployed to face the demonstrators and
protect the Vatican, which is surround-
ed by cavalry, and the bridges leading to
the Apostolic Palace are guarded by
troops. All the streets leading to the
Palace Farnese are protected by soldiers
with fixed bayonets.
Try to Break Cordon.
The demonstrators, led by a dozen radi-
cal socialists and Republican members of
the Chamber of Deputies, including
Prince Borghese, after vainly attempt-
ing to break the cordon, provided them-
selves with cudgels and formed in a pro-
cession, intoning the Miserere, as an
indie ation of the death of clericalism,
amidst the cries of "Long live France,"
"Long live Clemenceau" and "Down
with the Vatican." Deputies Costa and
De Filice tried to harangue the people,
but the police interferred.
The demonstration occurred near the
monument of George Bruno, the monk
philosopher, who was burned alive, a
vi' Hm of religious fa na tie ism.
Deputy Costa finally made his voice
heard and said: "Before this monument
of l'ree thought let us send our applause
to France for this great people, contin-
uing the traditional, obstinate struggle
against the moth-eaten clericalism."
Cavalry Charges Crowd.
Fresh attempts were made to beat back
the cordon and the cavalry charged the
demonstrators, a few of whom were
fatally injured, and several arrested.
There were cri< s and shouts and singing
of the "Marseillaise," the foment contin-
uing until late in the evening. A com-
misson of the demonstrators was re-
ceived by M. Barerre, the French Am-
bassador, who expressed his appreciation
for the sympathy of the Roman people.
The Government endeavored by all
means to pr vent the demonstration. The
stand the Government, is taking is that
although Italy is friendly to France, she
does not wish to take sides in the dis-
pute, especially when her relations with
the Church are better now than they
have been since 1870.

Spirits Aged for Two Weeks In Ken-
tucky Finds Ready Sale.
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Dec. 16.—J. A.
Wathen of Louisville, Kentucky, an em-
ploye of the Kentucky Distilleries and
Warehouse Company, testified before the
pure food commission today that neutral
spirits aged two weeks is widely sold as
whiskey. He said that alcohol had a de-
cided character, while the commodity
known as spirits had no character at all,
having neither smell nor flavor.
Asked if neutral spirits were ever put
into charred barrels and called whiskey,
Mr. Wathen said:
"The internal revenue laws permit a
distiller to put neutral spirits in charred
barrels and brand the product as 'whis-
"How long is the spirit kept In charred
"From ten days to two weeks."
"Is this product at the expiration of
that time, sold to the trade as whiskey?"
"The Government allows the distillers
to use that name. There is a great de-
mand for this brand of goods, and the
distillers always see that the demand is
"Who drinks this sort of whiskey?"
"It is consumed in large quantities
by the patrons of dives and barrel
"What does it sell for?"
"You can get an ample glass of it for

PARIS, Dec. 16.—The serious disturb-
ances that it was believed would ensue on
this, the first Sunday under the law
separating Church and State, were real-
ized. There was a notable increase in the
size of the congregations and large bodies
of men were deterred forcibly in order
to prevent interruption of masses by
rowdies. There were only a few cases
where the rowdies entered the churches,
and they were promptly ejected and ar-
Excitement in Many Places.
Reports from the provinces show that
there was great excitement in many
places. Largo processions, chanting
psalms, accompanied the clergy to and
from the churches. Counter demonstra-
tions took place in several cities, notably
Peripignan and Amiens, where the Cath-
olics and Free Thinkers came into col-
lision, necessitating interference by the
police, who quickly dispersed the crowds.

ROME, Dec. 16.—A communication is-
sued at the Vatican today reiterates the
previous statement given out there that
the object of the search of the arch-
bishop's and nunciature's apartments at
Paris alter the expulsion of Mgr. Mon-
tagnini was to diffuse the news in order
to make it believed that the papers taken
were "low insinuations of a money bar-
gain for the appointment of bishops,
gambling on the stock exchange, etc."
The communications repeat the Vati-
can's original denunciation of the tactics
employed in securing the papers, and es-
pecially denounces what it terms efforts
to make it appear as due to the negotia-
tions of the Vatican or of Mgr. Mon-
tagnini for some of the letters which it
says rj$iy really have been received and
kept as documents, but which no honest
man could take as a basis for faet.s that
did not exist. Such letters, it is declared,
may even have been sent on purpose to
Mgr. Montagnini in order to have a dos-
sier ready when the search was made.
With regard to the alleged arrange-
ments which the Spanish Ambassador
at Paris made for the car<» of the
archives of the nunciature, the com-
munication says that neither the Vatican
nor the Spanish Ambassador to the
Vatican ever thought of communicating
with the Spanish Ambassador at Paris,
without first entering into an agreement.
With regard to the statement published
in the National Zeitung of Berlin at-
tributing to the hitherto unpublished por-
tions of the memoris of Prince Hohen-
lohe the declaration that Pope [jeo XIII
asked Emperor William for a gift of
$100,000, the communication declares it to
be absurd and to be connected with the
German electoral campaign and the anti-

WARSAW, Dec. 16.--Reports received
from points throughout Russian Poland
show that the Government's policy of
firmness has been successful in subdu-
ing the last of the smouldering sparks
of revolution. The result was accom-
plished at a terrible cost to the Polish
people, the number of victims being es-
timated at thousands. Business htis be-

are bankrupt and the masses are in a

NEW YORK, T)ec. 16.—Archbishop John
M. Farley of Now York today gave out
the following statement on the Church
and State controversy in France. Ha
"Here In America, where there Is no
attempt made by the State to Interfere
with the various religious denominations!,
the people at large are not disposed to
condemn the clergy, who, by declining to
comply with the desires of the Govern-
ment, expose themselves to a charge of
rebellion against the authorities of the
land. But in order to understand the re-
fusal of the Roman Catholic clergy of
France to fulfill the requirement of the
new law of separation, it must be ex-
plained that the provisions of the statute
In question demand the consent of the
Church and of its ministers to the alien-
ation of all the property that has been
bequeathed and donated to them to bo
placed in trust for religious and philan-
thropic purposes. It is property which
they did not derive from the Govern-
ment, but from the munificence of the
people, and they are merely trustees.
"The situation created hy the new law
of separation, which is the cause of the
present crisis in France, is as if, for in-
stance. the Legislature of New York
were to enact laws compelling the trus-
tees of the Trinity Church Corporation,
under the penalty of confiscation, to give
their consent to the alienation of all Its
vast property to other uses than those
for which it was intended and to transfer
its administration and control to people
who might either belong to rival denomi-
nations or even profess atheism. It is as
if the Legislature of New York were to
enact a statuto requiring the Catholic
Church, under the penalty of the con-
fiscation of its property of one kind or
another, to consent to the transfer of the
management and control of its sacred
edifices, seminaries, rectories, hospitals,
protectories and other educational and
charitable institutions to an association
in which not merely avowed foes of Cath-
olicism among the Protestant denominaj-
tions but also agnostics and scheming
politicians, indifferent to any kind of re-
ligious belief were in the majority. It
is inconceivable to the American pernio
that the Legislature of New York, or in-
deed of any other State of this great and
free Republic, should enact any such
