FREEDOM Of Religious Kind Famished By Uncle Sam Gives Sheltering Arm To Heathen Beliefs, Census Returns Show. Chinese and Japanese Are Baddhist Followers. Enumerators' Returns Reveal Many of American Faith Communistic Societies Fewer. srscML mar atcb to tb ex omasa. Washington, August 13. Religious free- Jom In the United States shelters under its tolerant and ample folds thousands of rep- i heathen In addition tn mflh than ui uu.a. to Census Bureau statistics dealing with the religious life of the country. Among the former are Buddhists, Confuclanlsts and Bahaista, who are engaged In an organised way In the spread of their doctrines In this country. The date forming the basis of the volume In question was gathered In 1900. It if now In proof, but there Is no assurance fas to when it will be given to the public. In addition to statistics of the various denominations, the work will present a brief history of each; also, the pertinent facta regarding their doctrine and policy. The compilation Is the work of Dr. Edwin M. Bliss. Up to the time of the Investigation there had- been no effort to effect any organization for the promotion of Confucianism, but the text tells of a society of the Chinese sage's followers, which was organized in New York City In 1H07. amor the Mon golian students in Columbia University. System of the Ethics. Contending that Buddhism is only a system of ethics, they undertook to demonstrate that Confucianism was a real re ligion and so a regular system of services was established by a well-defined organiza tion. The organized followers of Buddhism are Chinese and Japanese. Their churches. I known officially as "temples," by the irrev erent are referred to as "Joss" houses. There are Chinese and 12 Japanese temples in this country, the former being distributed over VI, the latter over three states. California shelters ail but three of the Japanese and more than half of the Chinese houses. About 40 which went down under the San Francisco cataclysm had remained In ruins to the time of the enumeration. New Terk boasks 15 of the Chinese tera- states; mostly In the West. Chin BUc I try and conduct no recognized system of iufnj do recora oi raemoer-ehip; they have no sermon; keep no Sabbath and have no religious service. The only use for their temples are as places at which Individual devotees may consult their patron saints. Three deities are recognized in the American temples, the God Kuan, a mighty duke of the ancient Han dynasty: the Goddess of Fortune and the Goddess of Mercy. Progressive Buddhists. The American-Japanese Buddhists are of the progrefcsive" Shin Shin sect, which is missionary In character. They discard the ascetic practices of the more austere Buddhists of Asia, allow the priests to marry and have no ban on meat or other food. The societies are well organized, each a priest. General headquarters are which is found In the: fact that this religion attaches itself too Closely to the person of the Japanese Emperor. In a way the Hindu religion is represented by the Vedanta Society, with organizations In New York. Pittsburg. San Francisco and Lou Angeles. It was organized by some Hindu teachers who came here In 1883. to the World's Fair. Its name is from an ancient Hindi) philosophy meaning "the end of all wladom." It is nonsectarlan. seeking to harmonize all religious systems. Oriental philosophies as taught by the The-osoplil8ts, have four bodies with 2,336 members ln the United States. Comparatively New Sect. While Bahalsm, strictly speaking, is rron-christian and foreign. Its followers are native and not necessarily unchristian. This Is a comparatively new sect, growing out of the teaehlngs of a Persian leader of the middle of the last century, named Alt Mohammed. He claimed to be the forerunner "of Him whom God would manifest," and called himself "Bab," or "The Gate." Later came' Baha Ulla, who claimed to be the one whose coming had been foretold, and from him the real name of the body is derived. In looe he had 1.280 followers In the United States, who worshiped ln 24 places through 14 states. They teach tolerance, love, charity and regard all religions as divine. Hence, they profess not to Interfere with the ordinary doctrinal beliefs of their members. Another church of Asiatic origin, but still Christian. Is the Armenian. nas 73 organisations In this country, moet of them in the Eastern States, 29 In Massachusetts alone. Their communicants are' generally Armenians, many of whom fled to this country tu escape i persecution. Foreign Organizations. The Eastern orthodox: churches, or Greek Church, has 120,006 communicants. Is the state church of Russia and Greece, Of the 411 churches here 59 represent the former nationality. There also are Servian and Syrian branches. The Greeks have S34 organizations throughout the country, with New York. Illinois and Massachusetts lead-ins'. The Greek membershiD is 90.751. Twenty-two of the 50 Russian churches areN In. Pennsylvania. The volume also will tell of the various Christian sects are considered- more purely American and will show. ho- various branches It will show that, while there are only 57 main bodies, there are 213 cturch organisations, many of them professing faith only a shade different from others. For instance, there are 17 Baptist bodies, 24 Lutheran. 13 Methodist and 12 Presbyterian. The same is true of less known organisations. are 18 Adventlata, 4 Dunker or Dunkard 'and 4 Quaker or Friend bodies. -There appears no; division ln Wither the Roman Catholic or Protestant eptsconej Churches, although-It is shown that efforts to modify their creed bar resulted la the establishment of Independent bodies. They are designated as the Reformed Catholic and the Reformed Episcopal Churches, respectively. The Reformed Catholic number only 1,230 communicants, while' of the Reformed Episcopalians there are about 9.S82. -T The causa of the origin of some pf the branches Is indicated by the name. For Instance, there are General Baptists, Separate Baptists. United Baptists, Free Baptists. Freewill Baptists. United American Freewill Baptists. Primitive Baptists, General -Six-Principles Bapt's's, Seventh Cay Baptists. Duck River Baptists and Two-Seed-ln-be-8plrH Predestination Baptists. The Civil War caused splits, giving rise to Southern Methodist and Southern Baptist bodies. In these churches there Is also color division. Two or three churches csme Into existence just after the close of the war as a protest against political preach ing. Many of the branches of the Lutheran Church, are due to difference In nationality. Of other branches, besides the Duck River Baptists, owing their names to localities are the River Brethren and the Yorkers, both branches of the Brethren denomination. The former began existence on the Susquehanna River; the latter In York County. Pennsylvania. The Brtnsers, a'so Brethren, are called after their first Bishop, as also the Schweckenfelders. Colored Communicant. Three of the newest churches mentioned are composed largely of colored communicants. One of these, the Church of God and Saints of Christ, accepts the Ten Commandments as a positive guide to salvation and uses only scriptural names for its members. The "Church of the Living God" began business in 1800 and already has three branches. The Free Christian Zion Church of Christ, founded in 1005. protests against all. attempts to tax members for the support of churches. There were about TOO organisations in the main branch of the Salvation Army, with a membership of about 23.000. There were 4.15 organizations of Spiritualists, with over. 35.000 members. The report records the rapid disappearance of communistic societies, showing ttat of eight organizations mentioned in the census of 1800. only two are left, the survivors being remnants of the Shakers and of the Amana Society.

GoYernor Promptly Sent For Senator Dick To Command Buckeye Troops In Tiait.on Strike Situa- tion Marshall Is Remembered. araCXAt, DIKTATCB TO TBS BVQOIBBB. New. York, August 13. In a dispatch to the American John Temple Graves, at Columbus, Ohio, ln reviewing the political situation in the Buckeye State, pays high tribute to the political generalship of Gov ernor Harmon in connection with hla handling of the traction strike In that ft Mr. Graves asserts that the Republicans t- of Ohio had hoped to prejudice Governor Harmon's political fnture by attacking hi course In calling out state troops. His opinion is that they were outgeneraled by the Buckeye Governor. Excerpts from Mr. Graves's dispatch follow: "A JTame To Conjure With." "The Republicans of the Bockeye State had counted mightily on the -Columbus strike to stab the soaring prestige and pop- ularity of tbe Democratic Governor. "For Harmon Is the name to conjure hope in Democratic ranks and to send a shiver -y, along the spine of Buckeye Republicanism. 'Glamis he is and Cawdor and shall be more hereafter." "The Columbus strike was the chance ot the year to trap him. 1 "Labor was tremendously interested and its prejudices were keen. Mayor Marshall, was a Republican candidate for re-election and desperately cautious in action here. Sheriff Sartain was as 'unsartin' aa ever a Republican Sheriff could be who wanted the votes of labor to re-elect him. "And so they both resolved, after a gen- eral council of the party, to lay down' on the Democratic Governor, who was also a candidate for re-election and a looming figure for the Presidency. "And they dvd. They halted and hesl- tated and dawdled for a few very dangerous days and then called on the Governor to restore order. "Harmon Held His Peace!" "Harmon had held his peace and deferred, like the good Democrat that he is, to 'local self-government for the establishment of order. But, when the city and the county called upon the state for his duty was clear and hla response Instantaneous. -j. a jvj-'Tr "Within an hour, order went oui-. Within a day tbe Eighth Regiment and the Twelfth were camped on the Capitol grounds. "Right under the Governor's eye the troops rested on their arms. And they did nothing else. "Not an overt act of Intimidation or force could be charged to the state troops. Their presence was their only offense, and that. -was demanded by Republican officials -whose demand was a confession of incompetency to cope with riot. "Once, when the situation looked serious, the astute Executive summoned Major Charles Dick. United States Senator, potent politician and Republican leader, to his place at the head of the brigade. "Harmon had checkmated every strategic move of his enemies to array the labor ele- ment against the Harmon candidacy. "And so, ss the yellow line of the last battalion faded out of the Capitol gates, there faded also the best and keenest of V. -the Ohio Republicans to trap and cripple the man whom they most admire aad of whom they are most afraid." IT CERTAINLY IS KIND Of the Union Leader To Boost Senator Dick For Chairmanship. rBCIAI. DrATCB TO TBS BBQTTIBBB. Upper Sandusky, Ohio, August 13. The Union Republican carries a column leader this evening urging Senator Dick for Chairman of the Republican State Executive Committee. Among other things the Union Republican says: "If there is anything the Republicans of Ohio sorely need it is a campaign manager -Several have been tried since the Ohio Republicans went into the elimination business and a fine lot of failures has been the result. "Never before have the Republicans been so ln need of a real campaign manager, and if Senator Dick will only accept he should rbe chosen with open arms. He 'knows tlfe business: he knows how to get In touch wit the workers; knows how-to Inspire the sort of activity that wins." AN ADDED STARTER. rsriAt. jiirATca to ths ixqcibeb. Wei Is ton. Ohio.
