CARDINAL MERCIER'S ARREST.
CATHOLIC FEELING AROUSED IN GERMANY ALSO. Press Association—By Telegraph—Copyright. AMSTERDAM, January 6. (Received January 7, at 1.40 p.m.) The Roman Catholic community have been thrown into a state of consternation over the arrest of Cardinal Mercier. When the Reichstag- is in session the Centre party will insist on an explanation. The step'is described as an unpardonable blunder. It is semi-officlally stated in Berlin that everybody is agreed that Cardinal Mercier was justified in consoling the civilians during these severe times, and urging them to"keep quiet, but he transgressed his authority and misconstrued his rights and obligations to the Church when, in his pastoral, he interfered in a political quarrel between nations.
