POLITICS AND RELIGION. NOT EXACTLY KINDRED SUBJECTS BUT RUN TOGETHER BELOW. Jackson'i Day Sentiments by the President and Governor BUI—A Savage Assault on the Papacy by Dr. HcOlynn— Bishop Coxe on Leo and Oar Constitution—Ingalls on Lamar. NKW YORK, Jan, 9.—The Democratic business men of tills city held a banquet at the Hoffman house in honor of Andrew Jackson Saturday night The first toast was The President of the United States." A letter was read from President Cleveland In which he said: The anniversary of the battle which ill ustrates the courage and military skill or Andrew Jackson should be flttlnuly cele' rated by an araoclatlon whose name Indicates a belief la political principles which he steadfastly maintained. The led- son of his ruined honesty and his vigorous Insistence upon rightacan not In these days bo too often studied and enforced, It Is especially encouraging to find business men associated together for the purpose of contemplating these things, and advancing such political Interests as seem to their practical judgment necessary to the prosperity of tbo country. No political theory Is valuable unless It benefit* in its application the busl- nees of the people, and when our business men engage more generally In political affairs we shall have safer and better politics. letters of regret were received from tho following gentlemen: Hon. a COT, Secretary of the Treasury Fairchlld, Secretary Whitney, Hon. A. H. Garland, Secretary Eudicott, Daniel Lamont, Postmaster General Vilas, Filz Hugh Lee, Governor Mo- Enery (of Louisiana), Secretary of State Cook, and oi-Mayor Cooper. Governor Hill, In response to the toast, The State of New York" reviewed briefly the history of the city, and then passing to national affairs spoke as follows; "As respects national matters, you believe with the Democratic party in the sovereignty of the states and a strict construction of the constitution. You do not advocate froe trade, but you desire revenue reform. In accomplishing that reform you propose no injury to the Industries or labor of the country, bnt contemplate the exercise of wise discrimination favorable to such interests In the adjustment of the details of all legislation relating to taxation. My sympathies aro with evety industry which gives employment to honest laboring men, and I am opposed to any policy which will unreasonably or Intentionally cripple, injure or destroy such Industries. In so far as the government can legitimately and properly aid and foster them I believe it should be done. We are all agreed In behalf of the abolition of war taxes in whole or part, in the reduction of the surplus, in the correction of Inequalities and absurdities of the pres.-ut tariff, and lu tbo just diminution of all unnecessary burdens now imposed upon tho people. You desire the continuance of the fraternal feeling which now prevails between all sections of the country, and are opposed to stirring up sectional strife for political purposes. This country wants peace, prosperity, low taxes, fair wages, wider markets, freer commerce, and good government everywhere administered by honest raea" THE POPE AND POLITICa MoOlynn Talks Very Unlike an Obedient SOD of Rome. N«w YORK, Jan. ».—The announcement that Dr. McQIynn would speak Sunday night on the "pope's right to Interfere In politics drew an even larger audience than usual to the Antl-Poverty meeting In the Academy of Music. The address was a protest against a recent statement by Mgr. Preston that Roman Catholics aro bound to vote as the pope advises. Dr. McGlynn handled the inbject boldly, declaring that wherever papal influence had been felt In politics It had been a curie to the country where It was exercised. Christ, the founder of the church, had refrained from mingling religion with politics," bat some of bis vicegerents had thought themselves wiser. The speaker declared that even In religious matters popes had often shown themselves far from infallible. It was the shameless abuse of the papal power that led to the disruption of the church In sixteenth century. At the time when * flaxen-haired German boy named Martin Luther was playing around his mother's knee. Pope Alexander VI. was Installing his Illegitimate children in his papal residence. Many popes had been gulltyof egregious blunders and crime*. It bad been said tbat Roman Catholics must take their religion and not their politics from Rome. But even in matters of religion they were not bound to blindly submit to dictation. Every man's conscience is to be the final arbiter for him as to how far he Is obliged to obey the pope. The doctor laid down with clearness and at length tha church law upon this subject as enounced by the most eminent and pious fathers, and showed conclusively that the papal authority la very definitely limited. He Indulged In a stlng- ng rebuke to Mgr. Preston, and declared that the "palace crowd"—Archbishop Corrl- ran and his associates—were iu league with Tammagy ball to-day, as their predecessors were in league with Tweed.' 4. significant remark at the close of the address reveals the 'set that the George people will run a candidate for president next yaar. BISHOP COX HEARD FROM. tome Reflections on the President's Gift to the Holy Father. _. .__J. N. Y., Jan. ».-During the sermon of Bishop Coxo Sunday evening, Jie re- erred to the president's gift to the pope of an embossed copy of the constitution ot the United States, and said: "All Americans, all Italy, all the enlightened universe will applaud the gift It Is worth all the gew-gaws and trinket* with which potty princes and royal Idlota and cunning politicians have encumbered the lobbies of the Vatican." The bishop thought there was a hidden leaning underlying Its selection. He said it was a delicate hint to the pope to allow bis ollowera In this country perfect freedom. Ha said: "If King Humbert were called in, as a >aniel coma to judgment ha would address he pope about as follows: 'Venerable father, here Is an instrument which settles all dls- nites between Italy and the Vatican. Let taly be appeased and your sancity satisfied n the spirit of the American constitution, tecognixe me as the lawful king of Italy and promise to take care of the politics and leave theology to you. The gift la a political epigram. It comes laden with honey, but the point is just here: You have followers in America who must respect this constitution, t guarantees equal right* and privilege*, and nothing mora. The spirit is to bar out for- oigners meddling with their politic* ou any ntext Your people . in America must re- taut even your Interference with th* social aud civil affairs. In a word, holy father, thla American constitution is downright Qalllcanism." 1 In K>nior/ of PHIU*.I>HJ-UU, Jan. ft.—Tb« Young ttaa'n iuocntUo Uuinltou'j anausJ "Jitckaua diu- r* WM h*kl BttunUy night in St IHorjVs hall, Prwidsnl C«Jw»ll»a«r prwidiag. fck«x ato* VwrtoM, wbe WM to Uv* b**a •&• MOSES QILLOA Has jnat received a cm of SPLINT COAL, Just the thing to "htm, in YOUR CRATES Thl* kla* ofweather.

U.—The Young Men'a Republioin club or this city has requested Senators Ingalls and Plumb to use their Influence to defeat Secretary Lamar's confirmation. Senator Ingalls, In his reply, Juit received, sayst "My relations with Mr. Lamar, personally, are entirely friendly, but there can be no doubt that he represents everything that is bad In the past, dangerous in the present, and menacing in the future of this country. His nomination la still pending before the committee on judiciary, of which I am a member, and will probably be disposed of at an early date. I regret to say tha% in my opinion, there is little doubt of his confirmation." Want* to Scoop tho Convention. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Jan. 9.—A movement Is on foot here, beaded by prominent Democrats, to secure the holding of the national Democratic convention in this city. It is understood that a mooting of citizens, Irrespective of party, will be held, and a formal invitation will be extended as soon as the committee meets. In answer to the objection that the hotel accommodation of thirty houses is not sufficient, it Is claimed that tha convention, the nomination being already practically made, will not be as largely attended as usual, and that the city can easily provide for the delegates and visitors. The inducements to be held out by Democrat! are largely political, and some are quite sanguine of favorable action by tht national committee. WILL CARRY ON THE WAR. Work To Be, Entirely Stopped In the Anthracite Coal Beclon. NEW YOB.K, Jan. ».—A conference was held Saturday night in Jersey City between representatives of the various trades involved in the Reading strike, and it was decided that the men should be ordered oat of the Wyoming mines. This action, it was said, would practically stop work in tho anthracite region. -A prominent mombor of District assembly <!• said Saturday that the knights had fully made up their minds to flght this strike to the end, and would make no attempt now to secure arbitration. Closing the Wyoming mines, be added, would result in thousands of men being thrown out of work from want of fual to run the factories and mills. Telegrams from the Reading district state that the situation is not changed, except that coal Is growing continually scr .cer and the loss to the industries of that section will be incalculable if the strike hi protracted.

Y., Jan, 9.—The state board of arbitration and mediation's forthcoming report to the legislature will embrace an important reference to strikes upon railroads and other properties held and used for publio purposes.

Tritle, of Arizona, who officially ruled that territory during some of the Indian outbreaks, was nt the Gllsey house some time ago, where he talked about the Indian problem. "What do you think of the present system of keeping £he Indians?" he was asked. "The system of keeping together amass of people not at nil homogeneous is bad and should be remedied as soon as possible. A large number of Indians not of the same band are placed on one reservation and expected to live- in pence. T"he idea of any kind of peace prevailing among six or a dozen different tribes of Indians is simply preposterous. They are placed on reservations near where they have been reared and consequently are familiar with ihe topography of the country. When they wish to go on the war path they understand how to elude pursuit. Indian jutbreaks are usually traceable to one or two discontented warriors. "What tribe la Arizona Is the most troublesomer" "The Huachlcha tribe has made a fine • record in that respect. It is a branch of ;he Apaches. The Apache ia known by lis locality, the name of some river or • place, as the Hnochlcha tribe of the Apache. . TAere are a great many kinds of them, and they rove about those arid •eKions with a knowledge of the country x>rn of a long residence. They are altogether different from the plains Indians, md know nothing about riding or buffalo mnting. They get great lung power, iving on an elevation of from 2,000 to 7,000 feet above the sea. They are swift of foot, hardy and healthful, and can go a greater distance in a day than a. horseman. They travel over the mountains with great rapidity and never lose their way. Geronimo never could have escaped .he United' States troops so often but for lis superior knowledge of the country. If le hail been sent with his tribe years ago a some distant country of which he knew lothing he could not have eluded pursuit long."—New York Mail and Express. Fate of a Meddler. Women who meddle with everybody else's business are to be shunned and (eared. One of them was on the Troy local the other afternoon. A sprucely dressed young man held in his hand a yellow paper covered book, in which h« seemed to be deeply interested. The woman gat in front of him, and, happening to turn to take in the passengers, observed the cheap literature which was engrossing the attention of the man behind her. In a pleading, insinuating voice she said to him: "Young man, don't yon know that you are wasting your time very foolishly in reading dime novels? You might tetter take a book on history with you or something else that would benefit jour mind and give you an opportunity to improve." Reaching her hand over the. ttack of the seat, aha said very deliberately: "Let me look at that book." it* young man, without relaxing «, «iugl» feature, handed the book over to hia ag- gr*«iive fellow pasatnger.
