THURSDAY EVENING. DECEMBER 13,' xmfOk OAKLAND TRIBUNE. CATHOLIC CLERGY HOLD K SERVICE; BELLS SILENCED Front Gates of Churches Closed, but the Parishioner sr)Enter Through Side (Continued from Pago One.) t Early dispatches from the depart- i:ents say that wherever mass was celebrated charges were drawn up and 'sarrynonses 'Issued. At Chalons, the Abbe Panaudln claimed that the church bells .were 'jnot rung and that no person was ln-vlted, to mass, and that therefore the assemblage had not the character' of a public meeting, whereupon he was compelled by a police officer to Inscribe his protests upon the summons. At the final meeting last night of the diocesan, council here, It was decided that neither! the ecclesiastical residences nor the seminaries should bol abandoned except before a show of aorce. It la officially stated that the letter of Mgr. Montagnini, the expelled secretary of the Papal Nunciature here show that the majority of the French bichops favored observance of the law of 1881 and bowed with, reluctance to the papal decree. The official statement, adds that the inviolability of the diplomatic correspondence of the nunciature was scrupulously respected before the rupture between the "Vatican and France. CARDINAL SAYS RIGHTS t OF MAN ARE VIOLATED A- , : , f ROME, DEC. 13. CARDINAL MERRY DEL VAL, THE PA-PAL' SECRETARY OF STATE. IS PREPARING A VIGOROUSLY WORDED PROTEST AGAINST THE ACTION OF THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT IN SEARCHING THE ARCHIVES OF THE NUNCIATURE AT PARIS. THIS PROTEST WILL BE WANOED TO THE MEMBERS OF THE DIPLOMATIC BODY ACCREDITED TO THE VATICAN. THE SECRETARY OF STATE SETS FORTH, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THAT THE INCIDENT IN QUESTION IS THE FIRST INSTANCE IN HISTORY OF SUCH A VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF MAN. THE VATICAN IS CONVINCED THAT THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT WITH WHAT CHURCH OFFICIALS CALL "BRIAND'S BLACKMAILING CIRCULAR," AND THE OFFENSE AGAINST THE RIGHTS OF MAN COMMITTED -WHEN THE GOVERNMENT EXPELLED MONSBGNOR MONTAGNINI AND TOOK POSSESSION OF THE PAPAL ARCHIVES. HAS PLACED THE POSITION MAINTAINED BY THE CHURCH ON A SOUND BASIS. WHICH, INSURES HER THE MODEL SUPPORT OF ALL RIGHT MINDED PEOPLE. THE.. VATICAN HAS ALREADY DESIGNATED ANOTHER PRELATE TO TAKE THE PLACE OF MONSIGNOR MONTAGNINI FOR THE PURPOSE OF FACILITATING COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THE HOL YSEE AND THE FRENCH EPISCOPACY AND CLERGY. THE NAME OF THIS MAN, HOWEVER, IS KEPT SECRET TO AVOID "PERSECUTION." ' HEALTH BOARD DENIES RUMOR Diphtheria la Grant School Not Result of Creek Sewage. The board of health desires statements that have been made -that the prevalence of diphtheria in the Grant school district is due to sewage matter emptied into Cemetery ycreek. The health authorities have so notified Superintendent of Schools McClymonds, who has been investigating the matter for some time, especially since the closine of the Grant school, where It was found that twenty-five per cent of the scholars were Infected with diphtheria. Superintendent McClymonds is arranging to have the Grant school thoroughly fumigated and cleansed before the new school term. City Engineer Turner Is, planning right of ways for sewers along Cemetery creek. He stated this morning that if the property owners on Laurel street near Richmond avenue would raise enough money, that, with the assist ance of the council, an extension of Richmond avenue from Moss avenue to Laurel street could be purchased. A right of way through this property will not be granted by the owner, but he is willing to, sell the property. . M i CAR AND WAGON IN COLLISION (Continued i'c "in Page One.) EXPELLED SECRETARY IS IN CONFERENCE WITH POPE The Report Is to Be Used for a Protest to the Foreign Powers Against French Government ROME. Dec. 13. Immediately after The report of Mgr. Montagnini will !his arrival here today Mgr. Montag- be used for a protest to the foreign, Broadway and was running at an excessive rate of speed, according to the statements of pedestrians who witnessed the collision. 'LiHenthal drove across the tracks at Twentieth street, and the car struck the rear of his wagon. At the time of the col lision the car made a "leap into the air, the forward fenders com ing down on- the wagon, crushing the vehicle. The contents of the wagon, eggs and potatoes, were thrown in all directions about the street. The motorman, whose name would not be revealed by either himself or the officials of the company, stated that Lilienthal drove across the tracks directly in front ofc him and that it Qas impossible for him to stop his car soon-enough to avoid the collision. FIGHT TRUST WAS SLMN IN BATTLE OF PANCAKES Dies Bathed in Catsup and Punctured by a Pickle, Hurled by Coffroth at Graney. : SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 18. The battle coffee, waitiog.-fis did the men of Bun' of the German pancake at the Oyster Loaf Tuesday morning has settled the fate of the fight trust for good. The tomato catsup which James Coffroth scattered over the person of Eddie Graney has made the breach between the rival magnates so wide that all the king's horses and all the king's men, could not bring them together' again. Whether anything more serious than catsup will flow remain tn he seen. Insults have been carried back and forth between the Cafe Willis and the Tuxedo all day through the affidavit men of both places and 'there are wild rumors of a duel to the death. COFFROTH MAKES REPLY. Coffroth says with a Vere de Vere sneer: "I would not shoot Mr. Graney. The only place where I could hit the gentleman would be in that part of the anatomy known as the corporation. Should a bullet penetrate that a stream of honesty would flow. It would be a shame to disturb so much concentrated honesty." This was uttered in the same tone that Marc Antony used when he was handing the padded knock to Brutus. While Coffroth and Graney are each sulking in his tent or, rather, bar Morris Levy is down where jtfie orange blossoms blow, and Willis Brltt is reclining peacefully in a cot weeping - softly because the moon is making faces at him and the stars won't let him play tag with them. J3RITT ONE OF THE CAUSES. ;WilIis was one of the Immediate causes of the Rattle of the German pancake. For several days he has been in a belligerent mood. He has also been loquacious, and his utterances while the burst of indignation jvas on caused the members of the paralytic fight trust much concern. The presence of the pistol in the battlefield of the German pancake is attributed to Willis by Coffroth. The night that Willis accused Lonergan of having accepted $500 the brother ot James Edward became more and more warlike. Finally he demanded a revolver, announcing that he was going forth to slay, among others, Abe Kuef. Mayor Hill, until he could see the whltea of faU enemy s eyes. , The catsup was followed or a uiu pickle, which was discharged at comparatively close range. It mulcted a painful though not dangerous wound. The gallant Graney waited behind his pancake breastwork with the coffee ready. , , Shouting the war cry of the cafe, Willis Coffroth let loose volleys Of salt. mock turtle soup and tabasco sauce. The Monahan drew the antique weapon with which Willis Britt set forth to annihilate the administration and tne District Attorney's office. Thompson, the proprietor of the cafe, leaped over the kitchen stove when he saw the thing, and one of the waiters who tried to follow him stepped into a pot of rice tomato soup. The floor of the cafe was wet with catsup and soup, but no gore was bpilled. SAYS COFFROTH IS LIAR. Coffroth declares that at this juncture Graney made a hasty exit. Graney says that "Coffroth lies when he says so." He declares that he strode quietly past the auburn-haired magnate, who was brandishing a huge knife. "I did not want- to talk," says the Honest Blacksmith.-. "But since our friend James has begrun it charity-ceases. When he says that I ran out of the place he is a liar." "He is responsible for the trouble. He came into the place and began to throw things at me when my back was turned. He threw catsup and other things which 1 am not accustomed to taking externally. "Armed with a bundle of whisky and I don't know what other weapons, he declared that either he or 1 had to die. I quietly told him that it was not the time or jilace for trouble. " 'What do you want me to do?' he asked. 'Do you v. ant me to shoot you from here?' "I told him that I was not at all anxious to be shot. Then he said, 'You are a crook.' "I suppose that when the time Monies to prove it he will hae a hundred af fidavit men and frej lunch bums to Schmitz, Francis J. Heney and Burns. , prove it. Bat he did not have them He demanded instantly to be furnished with him that time. There were some with a revolver and the munitions of I r.en and women in the place who do war. Coffroth handed him a pistol that had been brought to Manila by Magellan and turned him loose to slay. Harry Monohan, thinking that the pistol was really a dangerous weapon, abstracted it from Brltt's pocket. This was the weapon that was drawn during the battle of the German pancake. ENTRENCHED BEHIND PANCAKE. The historic struggle is called by that not belong to the affidavit family. Well, the only thing that 1 regret is that I didn't finish my German pancake." CALLS IT A JOKE. Coffroth says: "Why I look at the whole thing as an awful joke. I threw the eatsup but not the bottle and I also plead guilty to the (iill pickle." A duel between the veterans of the Battle of the German Pancake has not This Weeh's Specials in the Suit Department We have gone carefully over this stock and selected some specials which should make the section a scene of activity during the week.

Coffroth says that the time the Coffroth cohorts swooped ! he will fight Graney, if the latter will down upon him the village blacksmith was entrenched behind a German pancake. His only weapon was a cup of coffee, affk-acious at short range, but of little use lor long distances. There was no open declaration of war. The first thing that Graney knew of the impending hostilities was when a heavy charge of eatsup burst over his shirt bosom. He hastily ambushed himself i:ini. the expelled secretary of the powers against the action of the t papal nunciature at Paris, went to i the Vatican and conferred, with papal J (Secretary of State Merry del Val and Mgr.

Graney is holding out for sledces. And in the meantime, the fight trust members are drifting farther and farther apart. There are m:iny who think that If some sort of truce is not patched up that the real f.icts ab-ut the fight trust will be revealed by one of the French government. Immediately after his . conference with Cardinal Merry del Val, Mgr. Montagnini went to the Pope, who asked for minute details of the secretary's expulsion and of the documents seized. Mgr. Montagnini expressed the distress which he felt as a result of his expulsion and presented to the pontiff .-Kxather dark picture of the situation, paying he- believed the present French government will not be induced to change the attitude which It has as-fumed towards the Vatican.

L. Leuschner, of the State University. Only the immediate relatives of the contracting parties will be present, seventeen in all, including the bride and groom, and the officiating clergyman. Rev. John Lathrop, of the First Unitarian Church of Berkeley. Neither the bride nor the groom will be attended. Mrs. Leuschner is a sister of young Denicke. The wedding was to have been held about two weeks ago, according to the wishes of the elder Denicke, but his son insisted that the ceremony should be performed today. Since the fire, Denicke has been liv- ing at the home of K. E. Miller, 2o0i Channlng way, Berkeley.

Denicke was at that time employed by a South Afri- can mining company as engineer. Be- I fore leaving South Africa, the two j became engaged. When Mrs. Clement I arrived in San Francisco last spring j with the intention of becoming Den- i icke's -bride, she found the city in ; ruins and her intended husband on j trial for his life. She attended him ! during the long sessions of the court, and was at his side when he was acquitted. , v Young Denicke is the son of the millionaire banker of San Francisco. He graduated from the University of California with the class of 1899. After leaving the State University, he took up post graduate work along the line of his profession of civil engineering.
