C. W. C. News Service) Warsaw, April 9.One o/: the most important of all the political and re- ligious questions now under discus- sion in the Republic of Poland, is that of the Concordat to be concluded with the Holy See. The desire for such a Concordat has existed ever since th.e constitution of the Polish nation. There have been many obstacles, so far, to the fulfillment of this desire, one of the principal ones being the actual composition of the Polish State, and the different situation of the va- rious parts of New Poland with re- gard to Rome. In that part of the territory which has been detached from Prussia, the t]ull "De Salute Animarum" is still in effect; in that detached from Aus- tria, the Austrian Concordat is still. in effect, while in the section former- ly under Russian domination, there is no arrangement or agreement with the Holy See of any kind. The question now is to conclude a uniform Concordat for the whole of Poland, and to do this it will be nec- essary to take certain historical and local circumstances into consideration and to sacrifice others. The opposi- tion of certain Polish statesmen who, in reality ,are anxious .for amicable relations between the Church and State, is due to the fact that they would like to see Poland retain all the advantages of the Bull "De Salute Animarum" and of the Austrian Con- cordat as well, which is demandin the impossible. In any case, it has been impossible, up to the prescnt, to come to any agreement, and the negotiations which were to have been opened a few weeks ago, have again been postponed, for the reason that at the present time there is no suitable basis for these negotiations. NEEDY CHILDREN AIDED DESPITE SOCIALIST (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Paris, April 16.The Municipal Council of Nantes was recently called upon to discuss a motion proposing the annual distribution of the sum of 25,000 franks among needy children of the religious schools. A Socialist Councillor declared that such a meas- ure would be illegal, since it might be detrimental to the public schools. The Mayor of Nantes, M. Bellamy, opposed this statement, and the mo- tion carried by a large majority. It was afterwards ratiified by the pre- fect. Doing is only of value so far as it contributes to Being.
