The American .minis-, ter at Constantinople has-been*, at-a Thai Is Ihc Waller With Cotuilff disadvantage because of.inferior, rank' to that of the representatives'of. other world powers. The "sultan is>said.i.to have objected to the eleventlom of "the Turkish minister In this countr.y?to, an ambassador, however; -because, of the marked increase which' would result In the expense of maintaining an. ofli-cial establishment, in .-Washington! Since the return to Washington, of Mr. Hay, the secretary of the state, and his resumption of his duties it lias become apparent that there 1b no Immediate intention of withdrawing our ships from the port of Beirut, in spite of the pointed suggestions in this connection made by the porte. The porte will also be reminded at this time of numerous other unfulfill ed promises which it has made in connection with the. licensing of professional men who are graduates of American institutions. Although it Is improbable that our minister will say In so many words that our ships -will remain until our wishes are complied with, yet his answer to. the request for the withdrawal Of our ships will partake of this effect: In the meantime the United States will proceed on the presumption that she is not going to have, trouble with the. Turks, and will show that country-that a nice arrangement, "can be made for out representative, to be raised Uo the rank New York, Oct. 9.-After twenty- of an ambassador; The-steps in this lour hours of pouring rain New York! direction will be so timed that they City and the adjacent country soffereu 'n,a mesure be in'commemoration �, bian Congress.

Washington, Oct. 9.-Although Secretary Hay has returned to Washington, the administration is not/ready, to make any move in the Isthmian oa-nal affair. It is waiting to see what the Colombian government has to .of- raining to be the record rainfall.

ChurWlW Protestant*. ^ttcinna^ir^OTirS; Oct. 9.-Archbishop Wilu'am'-t"Jri�&ry Elder of this city, ;the.oldest"arc^plshotf of the Catholic church in this igoilntry, today made public a plan toft iJSjbflc schools which he.believes would'be acceptable to non-Catholics' and Catholics alike. "Would it satisfy the church If the ;Blble.,were;studied or read In the public schools by pupils and teachers?" he was asked. "The talk about the reading of the Bible is with many more than a shibboleth, a sort 6+ electioneering device," said be. "We believe In reading the Bible, but that is not all of religion." "What plan, then, would reconcile the two systems, satisfy the church, and yet not violate what is called the "American idea?" "One plan would lie to let the parents of the majority ot the pupils in any given school decide the nature and extent ot the religious Instruction to, be given in it. While this plan.would be better than the present, it would only be an approximation ot the correct plan. The true method, It seems to me; would bo to have a school where Catholics could go exclusively." HUBBY WdULDN'T KISS HER.

It Is understood that the president while listening atentlvoly to the statements of Mr. Cromwell, did not indicate what his line of policy would be. It can be said that the president will discuss the matter fully in bis message to the regular session of congress^; Before that time, unless .the conditions should change materially no authorized statement will be made concerning the question. Meanwhile there are Indications that the Panama Canal Company ;|s getting ready to. "divide" with Coloni-(bia. The inwardness of the difficulty at Bogota has been the desire of .tile Colombian politicians to get the- credit qf mulcting somebody out otfja large sum of money for the canal. They found they �iouldn't work "Uncle Sam, and,so. they have been hot after the Frenchmen.
