SCHOOL8UESI Letter by Arciibishop UBgnto to Catholic Clergy and Laity, Have Accepted Ooldweli Plan Only as Partial Con- cession, RoiJlin Government Has- Ren- ted Minority Cause "Ap- preciable Will Not Yield en Question of Re- ligious Strongly Opposed to Compulsory Education, Archbishop Langevin has issued a oost important pronouncement upon the school question in the form of a letter to be read in the Catholic churches. A portion of this letter was read at high mass in -St. Boniface Cathedral yesterday by Monsignor Dugas, vicar-general; and the remain- der is to be read on a future occasion. The letter is the frankest exposition of his grace's views on the school issue yet made and -will prove deeply inter- esting to more than Catholics. His Grace in. the letter laments that the bill enlarging the boundaries of Manitoba did not safeguard the rights of the minority. The Coldwell amendments were, he says, the result of negotiations following the passage of the bill at Ottawa. It is pointed out that acceptance by the Winnipeg School Board of the proposition made by Mr. Coldwell would be a partial ccncession and would not be regarded as a settlement in full. The Roblin government is highly commended for having given ths French Catholics their own normal school, three inspec- tors of their own language and faith Ihe right, in the French schools, to em- fjiov teachers in religious garb and to Veep the crucifix upon the wsils of the ichocls. Thesa are declared to be ''sp- ..freciable Commendation, thmgh less specific, is also passed tjon the Saskatchewan government. THs letter closes with a declaration J'.analterabie hostility to national schools, a state university and compul- sory education. The Press herewith prints a careful su.-nmary of the letter: The charge begins by saying- that his feels it to be his duty to speak on the school question after a long and painful silence imposed upon him in order hot to prejudice in any way the negotiations being carried on at Ottawa MU Winnipeg for the past year. The charge proceeds: "You are aware when a large portion of the ter- ruory Of Keewutin was transferred to Manitoba government the school S of Ihe inhabitants of Keewatin lvere not safeguarded in spite of our iron y.Titten protests and those of iigr. vicar-apostolic of Kee- the immediate representative of taose interested.

The court of appeal today dismissed the appeal of Peter Carlson, who asked that an order of the admiralty court confis- cating his vessel, Thelma, found fish- ing in Canadian waters, should be set aside. His counsel claimed that the Thelma was outside the three mile limit Irom Vancouver Island, and that being the case, the vessel was on the high seas, and outside the jurisdiction of the court.

The system to be established by the Universal Radio system, which is now operating successfully in several parts of the globe. Mr. Pelletier said he had entered into these agreements rather than to proceed at once with a state- owned, cable project If it did not turn out to be state-own- ed cable could be built across the At- lantic later on. If successful five mil- lion dollars would be saved. Mr. Pelletier also announced tluy a sub-committee of the cabinet consist- ing of four ministers would be con- stituted to have charg-e -pf cable and telegraphic rates, of which the rail- way commission.would.be. relieved. Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux, former, postmaster general1 and other opposi- tion members, as well as J.- A. Arm- strong and W. F. Maclean, while ap- proving of the bargain, expressed re- gret that the project of a state-owned cable had not been gone on with. Mr- Lemieux was disposed to think that no wireless system would ever prove to be a serious competitor of the regular cable companies. Hon. Frank Oliver did not think much good could be accomplished unless some agreement is reached with the land companies which work in conjunction with the regular cable lines. The bill based upon Mr. Pelletier's resolution was introduced and.read a first-time.

Frank Oliver, praised Mr- Meig- hen for bringing up the. question but were disposed to think that there is a merger ton the Great Lakes which is even more serious for the farmer than the Atlantic combine. Premier Borden Hon. George H. Perley, who both spoke said that the government was alive to the import- ance of the question .and would do all in its power to find a solution of it. The naval bill will be taken up again Tuesday. Up-to-Date Wireless Service- Hon. L. P. Pelletier, postmaster- general, gave to the house this after- noon the details of a .new arrange- ment which has been affected with a British syndicate to provide a thor- oughly up-to-date wireless service 'be- tween, this country and Great Britain. The arrangement .brings with it a cor.sidera'ble reduction in rates and is to be in working order within.a year after the contract is ratified. Hon. Mr. Plelleticr said that the present arrangement grew out of the conferences which he had with the British postmaster-general last sum- mer and it would benefit Australia and New Zealand.as well. Be pointed tut that in the past the Dominion had been in the hands of the cable com- panies, which had things .pretty much their own way- Any reduction that had been secured in the past had been secured or.ly with great difficulty and the two reductions which had been made since the present government came into .power, while welcome, were nevertheless inadequate and there had been a feeling that the time had been a state-owned caMe. Mr. Pelletier said that this was the proposition that he first discussed with the British postmaster-general. The situation before then was that while Canada was linked with New Zealand o.nd Australia by a cable under the Pacific and while there was a leased line from Vancouver to Montreal there lemained a big- gap between. Montreal and the Atlantic coast and across the Atlantic itself. For this it was cessary- to use the. ca'bles of the private which were costly. This situation was thoroughly discussed and the British postmaster-general took the stand that the time had yet come for a state-owned Atlantic cable. His chief opposition- to the scheme was 'based on his view that the rapid progress of wireless telegraphy might result in this scheme takin: niace of- the old cable method. A state-owned cable would have to be duplicated and the two cables would cost about while the wire- less system be installed for be- tween and Would Not Get Better Terms. The result of the negotiations be- tween the two governments was the decision that the best course would be to reserve the state-owned cable and attempt to get better terms from the private companies- Such'jiegotiatlons were accordingly begun but were com- paratively. unsuccessful as far as se- curing- any real reduction was con- cerned. There had been some improve- ment -but this had been on deferred messages, cable letters and week-end letters with no reduction, however, of the rate for regular cablegrams .wheth- er in code or plain language. In view of this situation Mr. Pelletier said that he had begun negotiations in an- other quarter, and .the arrangement which he would now announce to the house was the result of these negotia- tions. A contract ha'd been entered into with-a syndicate .known as the Universal Radio system, limited, com- posed of wealthy British men who planned to come to this country and establish what was known .as the pqulspn aerie system of wireless. They would tvridertake and. guarantee to HE FIRST MADE DEPOSITS. Added Noughts to Amounts and Busi- ness Men Cashed Paper. Swift Current, Sask., May man who signed H. Williams registered at a -hotel here Saturday rnornins and opened accounts in two 'banks for small amounts. Just before closing time he got three chequfes marked for and then raised .them LO J5-0, and S7Q, .getting business men to cash them on small purchases. The police-have no trace of hirii. About a week ago a jewellery firm got soaked for in a similar manner, except that the fellow called for a cheque which had. been returned, marked N.S.F., and indignantly asked for it to show that he could get it cashed. It had already been endorsed by the jeweller when it was placed on de- posit. Of course the bank cashed it, and the fellow got away.

Toronto to hear Sir Wilfrid Laurier speak tonight. The huge rnk has a seating capacity of but more than seats were added to its capacity tonight, and in addition every aisle was packed with those who preferred to stand rather than miss an opportunity of hearing the leader of the .opposition speak. On Friday last every reserved ticket had been disposed of and on Saturday and today crowds, which besieged the office of G. Inwood, secretary of the Ontario Reform asosciatibn, which had the arrangements in. hand, went away disappointed and had to be content with the prospect of gaining admission to the few rush seats left. The eager desire of Ontarioans to hear the old chief speak was evidenc- ed by the fact that two hours before the time set for the meeting to com- mence, Dalhousie and Shuter streets were blocked by surging crowds and within the building all nine en- trances emptied Lheir crowds into the floor and the tiers of the amphitheatre. At half an hour before the speaker entered, the huge arena was packed to capacity and the streets, without were still rilled with a disappointed crowd, over strong, which did not disperse until long after all hope of entry had b'een abandoned- Only the effort of a 100 police finally succeeded in dispersing them.

It -was very evident before the meeting had concluded- that Li'b- eralism in Ontario is very much alive and ready at the call to rally round the standard of Sir Wilfrid- Laurier and hia party. Protest Against Borden'Policy. Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King was chairman and introduced the speaker. The meeting, he explained, had been called in response to spontaneous re- quests from all purls of Ontario, to protest against methods by which the isorden government proposed to solys the problem of imperial- defence and the arbitrary means which they had taken to bring this a'bout. The vast crowd which had gathered was a fitting trib- ute to the man who had opposed these methods' and means. Hon. Charles Murphy was the open- ing speaker. He traced- the history the naval quesdon from 1909, when the two parties voted united on the policy of a Canadian navy until the present, when there was a distinct cleavage between the parties because of the policy, which Premier Borden had in- autrirated in response to demands of his l Nationalist followers. The Liber- als'had opposed this policy day and night 'for two weeks. (Tremendous cheering.) Then the closure had been introduced, said Mr. Murphy, "there is a force greater than this the force of Canadian public opinion. To this tribunal we appeal and we hope that it will return to rightful, power the indomitable leader of tha Liberal party." The applause which greeted the con- clusion of the speech was merged in the gi eater volume of acclaim, which greet- ed the rising of Sic Wilfrid, thereafter. It was several minutes before he could make himself heard. The crowds ranged on tiers of seats rose in a solid mass waving, handkerchiefs and hats." On the floor men stood on chairs and cheered wildly. A fla.shlight boomed at the back of the hall and added to the tumult.

It was. de- cided riot to: hold oral hearings on the various schedules, but to accept and consider any briefs that might be sub- mitted by those interested in the tariff. The house Republicans attacked a majority of the hundreds of para- graphs in the length free list of the Underwood bill. In almost every In- stance they argued that the admission of.the various articles free wduld "ruiu the industry" and. would not reduce the cost of living. Majority Leader Underwood pointed out that this argu- ment was inconsistent. "In order to ruin the he said, "as you .gentlemen, seem bound- to it would be necessary to.reduce the price the producers receive. This inevitably result in a reduction to the .consumer." In order to elim- inate unnecessary debate, Representa- tive Underwood, after the free list had been completed, secured an agreement to pass the paragraphs which were not in controversy without debate. The disputed paragraphs were then taken up in order. "Republican opposition centered about the paragraphs admit- ting free of di-'y coal, iron ore, cotton, wool', wheat, wheat flour, corn, buck- wheat, wood pulp -and print paper, meats, lumber, leather, potatoes, works of art fish, steel rails, barbed wire and dairv products.
