Discusses Re lations of Church anddAVoinon The Church Has a High Tiloa and a Lofty Teachiing1lo ffartllng Women WHAT CATHOLIC CHURCH PROCLAIMS Under the auspices of the Ladies Chapel Club of SS Peter and Pauls church Indianapolis the Rev Joseph Chartrand private secretary to the RightaRev Bishop and rector of his chapel de liveredan eloquent and instructive lect ure at the Propylaeum recently on The Church and Women The assembly room was crowded and among those present were Bishop ODonaghue Vicar General Scheideler Chancellor Gavisk and many prominent representatives of the Catholic clergy of the diocese By way of introduction Father Char trand said that in the most ancient of all f existing books could be found the most ttlmirable and perfect picture of the primary relations between man and woman Search might be made throughb all the books written by the wisest men of Greece Rome India Egypt and China and nothing could be found so beautiful so complete so ideal as the dozen lines of the great Hebrew prophet which bear v witness to the truth of the original tra ditions from heaven to man witness 1to the Beauty and divinity of womans orig inal Godgiven place in the social organ ism of the universe Man needed help and a helpmate said Father Chartrand but whence was this help to man to come Not as Adam was fashioned from the dust of the earth Rathertrom himself bone of his bone fleshof his flesh taken from his very substance bound to him with all the ties that bind child to parent The church has a high idea anti a lloftyteaching regarding WoineiirrltMs the great doctrine that has elevated woman and through woman has ennobled roan the doctrine that has civil ized the world Matrimony is a holy thing it is a sacred contract The matrimonial contract under the teaching f the church is not like other contracts The man and woman who marry give themselves each to the other but this gift once made depends no longer on mutual agreement They are united by a power which has seized them bound them together in a common life arid on which they henceforth depend This power is God the author of marriage Antiquity bears witness to its sanc tity Consult its monuments study the manners and institutibus of the natives best governed and most skilled Jn the knowledge of law and justice and you willalways see marriage appear under the form of an act permeated with relig ion and sanctity the nuptials consecrated by ceremonies of worship by the author ity of the Pontiffs and the ministry of priests jThe profanation of marriage means the downfall and profanation of woman Whether she likes fo allow it or not U is K only in virtue ofa waning survival of that chivalrous spirit which Christianity created and fostered that the newl woman as she is called is able to elbow het way to the front as she does If titan is ever wMrebarbarized by the withdrawal of the softening influences of home It wotifan becomes nothing more to hInt than a competitor in the general struggle for wealth she will eventually be forced down to that degradationwhich has al ways been her lot under the reign of pure Y selfishness and brute force she cau cevcr compete with man if the contest is to be one of brute force and selfishness is brute force It is the Catholic church ever proclaiming the infinite worth of chastity and love the great virtue of womanhood and who has elevated her and through her raised the world- S MACKIN COUNCIL i J Widespread interest In Its Select Dance andr tiReceptioni Interest has become widespread throughout the city in the coming select dance and reception

Parliament a bill for the sale of lands to tenants in Ire land It is not compulsory as the Irish people demand but makes provision for the purchase by ten ants of lands from a commission which a landlord desiring to sell can not find another landlord pur chaser for It seems to have for its purpose the unloading at good prices on the tenantry of estates so worthless or that have depreciated so they will not sell for the value placed on them by the present land lord or as is too often the case with Irish landed estates will not sell at usual sale for enough to pay the mortgage debts of London brokers Under such a law tenants on poor debt ridden estates would have a chance of purchasing their holdings but at a price and on terms that would be no betterment to them since only unsalable estates will be thus sold at a price named by the landlord and the tenants would assume the burden ofoverpriced and overtaxed poor land that will not produce adequate returns The result would benefit landlords with unremunerative es tates and their creditors since they would get their cash which it seems they can not get by regular sale but it would be squeezed out of the extenants life of drudgery his condition as his own landlord being worse than as tenant There is one condition of land tenure worse and more helpless than the tenant at will and that is what is called in this country landpoor to own and pay taxes on land that cost and is taxed for more than its real value and produces no net revenue Such land is a burden on the owner who persists in holding it because no one will buy it except at a sacrifice and toils his life away leaving the same worthless land to his heirs or the Sheriff There are such estates in Ireland and it is tenantry on these who are slaves to paythe rent the land will not pro duce with incessant toil and priva tion of the worker And these are the estates for sale that nobody with capital wants to buy The proposed land bill provides a way for foisting these lands on the ten ants ou credit at prices and terms that will prove harder to pay the interest and taxes than the rents and the principal never After drudging and stinting to pay inter est and taxes the tenantpurchaser is at the mercy of the creditor to be dispossessed for failure to pay the principal and the land reverts to the landlord or whoever he has sold the mortgage i notes toand tenantpurchase will have been demonstrated a failure at least in Ireland Is this the purpose of the pro psed new land bill Instead of giving the Irish people what they ask and what the Government sig nified its willingness to give proffer 4 i a measure that not only gives no relief but opens a way to defraud the people by foisting upon them at exorbitant values the refuse lands that are a burden to the land lords and can not be made profitable in agriculture to which the tenants G are devoted and the object desired and professedly provided for by the bill can not be attained The bill is clearly deceptive can be of no benefit to the tenantry will only profit a few landlords and their creditors It may however pass as have other bills of like character and foraUke tnrPse butthelrish rep eu dve w91 surely oppose it in its pie fijipe for Irelands Parliament have stated clearly what they want and are not to be deceived by any such false reform measures TO INVADE UNITED STATES The tobacco war in Great Britain seem to have reached a crisis since the American Company knocked out the boycott scheme of the Imperial Company The latter undertook to combine the dealers byangreement to allow special low rates to those declining to handle American tobacco and a patriotic appeal to patronize home products The American Company added a bonus to its already large percentage of profit leaving dealers free to also handle any other to bacco if they wished Thus they could sell English tobacco and also the American with its larger profit and bonus added It is riot sur prising that dealers repudiate the Imperial boycott agreement as they are doing Now it is reported the Imperial will carry the war into the enemys country and have established head quarters in Richmond Va With the aid of their ally the Universal Company of New York they pro pose to compete in buying and selling tobacco with the American Company here at home Welt the American has always been able to hold his own in this country against the Englishman in everything and tobacco is not likely to prove an exception Com petition in buying may increase the price of leaf tobacco and ultimately tireP rice of the manufactured but this will affect the Imperial as well as the American Company benefit the planter but not cut any figure in the war between the manufac turers As to capturing the trade of the American Company in this country it is hard to see how that can be done since the American has demonstrated superiority of knowledge of the weed facilities for handling and manufacturing and methods of business driving foreign tobacco out of this country and is crowding the Imperial Company in its own British markets But the Britishers seem to have become desperate at the encroach ments of the Yankee in their mar kets and are making a sortie as it were to tackle the Yankee in his own tobacco patch If the Cock neys are in earnest and put up the capital the fight will be interest ing But so far the American stock is still up while the Imperial has taken a slump in English stock exchanges indicating that there is some doubt even in England of the success of this invasion of the American tobacco market STICKING TOO CLOSELY Sticking too closely to the letter ofbe law rarely improves the con ditiob of things After much liti gation over the enforcement of re vised city taxes the application of which had in several cases been overruled by the courts the city authorized the compromise of sev eral tax suits against corpora tions The compromises were made and the money paid into the city treasury City Attorney Stone would not have it so He insisted the city had no authority to compromise taxes went into court and had the compromises nullified This left the tax suits pending The Louisville City Railway Com parry whose case first came up objected to the spit edingun til the money 177000 paid by it in the cbuipromiec be refunded and Judge Miller so decided There you are Until the cUr = funds several hundred thousand dollars received in compromise set1 a J tiements and expended these suit cannot go on Will the city borrow the money to refund and enter up on several more years of litigation with no certainty that the final decision will be favorable And iu view of recent decisions it is not unlikely that even should the cit obtain judgment in all the cases it will be for less than claimed and hardly exceed the amount paid in the compromises INDEFENSIBLE There was no necessity for Johu Dillon to violate the rules of Parliament and have himself suspende by calling Secretary Chamberlain a 1 liar Chamberlain has long since demonstrated his right to the title and it is generally conceded It is not the first time he has beet so branded though not in sucl blunt unequivocal language Mr Dillon however was clearly wrong in using such language and was properly punished for flagrant violation of rules being suspended foi a weeka light penalty consider ing the offense Mr Dillon is a conservative and courteous gentle man but lost his temper under provocation at false statements am insinuations made by Chamberlain becoming so excited as to persist in violation of rules after beitif warned by the Speaker Mr Chamberlains offense thougl couched in less vigorous language was insulting to Dillon but Cham berlain was discreet enough to keep quiet when rebuked and warned bj the Speaker The incident has not attracted much attention in Eng land for the reason that whatever may be said of Dillons breach Chamberlains course in provoking it is indefensible All England is as happy as cir cumstances will permit because ita treaty with Japan has been signed Some newspapers in their jubilila tion predict early war with Russia over the Chinese question but why Japan recently signed ia- tttreaty with Russia which gave England the blues though there seemed to be no reason thereto save envy Treaties and alliance in the far East my defer war bI providing an easier way of settling differences but will not cause war Japan has no intrinsic interest ii China and Englands interests are isolated from the disputed sections Russia Prance and Germany have their interests and the United States has trade interests and all four are extending and will main tain their interests against aU comers If as is intimated Eng land expects the aid of Japan in in terfering with the interests of any of those nations iu China then there will be war with the prob able result that there will be neither English interests nor Japan left to worry over in the Fur East It the meantime all those nations are moving along in Chinese matter as if they mean to keep it up re gardless of the purport of the Eng landJapan treaty The British Government sometime ago to

Fifth street counts its devotees by the thousand monthly This picture which represents Our Lady holding the Divine Child in her arras is a facsimile of that in Rome which is held in public veneration in the church of the Redemptorist Fathers which is dedicated to St Alpbbnsus Marie de Lignori It is called the Miraculous picture because so many wonderful answers to prayer have been returned to those who devoutly ask for aid from her who is depicted as holding in her arms the Creator and Redeemer of mankind The original was carried to Rome from the island of Crete and was for three centuries venerated by the faithful therein the church of St Matthew This church was destroyed during the French revolution and the picture was forgotten for sixty years until Pope Pius IX ordered it to be brought out and again placed in the church of St Alphpn sus de Ligori The Chapter of St Peters crowned the holy image with a golden crown on June 23 1807 and today no other devotion is more widely or more fittingly spread than that of Our Lady of Perpetual Help It is needless to add that the many and devoted clients of this holy mother vie with one another in the adornment of this chosen spot in the Cathedral and during any time of the year may be seen garlands of choicest flowers shedding their fragrance here at Our Ladys shrine HOUSEHOLD HINTS I Sponge roughened skin with brandy and

for their patience by the TransAtlantic Burlesquers who are underlined for next week at the Buckingham This attraction is the latest addition to the light theatrical brigade and though on the road but

Master and Servant Alike and Love to All The One Impulse to Duty and Restraint to Evil That Affects Wealthy and Poor SERMON BY CARDINAL GIBBONS Religion is the bond that unites man with his Creator It is a virtue by which due honor and worship are paid to God It embraces all those fundamental truths that involve Gods sovereignty over u and our entire dependence on Him employ the term religion here in its broadest and most comprehensive sense as embodying the existence of God Ills power and knowledge His providenc- over us the recognition of divine law the moral freedom and responsibility o- man f the distinction between good and evil the duty ot rendering homage to God and justice and charity to our neighbor and finally the existence of a future state of rewards and punishments I hold that religion is the only solid basis of society If the social edifice rests not on this eternal and immutable foundation it will soon crumble to pieces It would be as vain to attempt to establish society without religion as to erect a palace In the air or on shifting sands or to hope to reap a crop from seed scattered on the oceans surface Religion is to society what cement is to the building it makes all parts compact and coherent He who destroys relig ion says Plato overthrows the founda tions of human society The social body is composed of lUlU viduals who have constant relations with one another and the very life and preservation of society demand that the members of the community discharge toward one another variousand complex dutiesWhat does society require of your rulers and magistrates What does it re quire of you It demands of your rulers that they dispense justice with an even hand It demands of you that you be loyal to your country zealous in her de tense faithful in the observance her laws conscientious in the payment of imposts and taxes for her maintenance and support It demands that you be scrupulous jn observing your oaths and wows just M thefaliillitieriof7onrcott tracts and obligations honest in your deal ings and truthful In your promises It demands that you honor andrespect your lawful superiors that you be courte ous to your equals condescending to your inferiors faithful to your friends magnanimous to your enemies and merciful to the poor and oppressed It demands of the married couple conjugal fidelity of parents provident vigilance of children filial love In a word it de mands that you render to all men their dues tribute to whom tribute is due custom to whom custom fear to whom fear honor to whom honor and that you render to Ceasar the things that are Caesars and to God the things that are Gods How can these social virtues he practiced without sufficient motives These motives must be slrouk and powerful be cause they have passions and selfinterest to overcome They must be universal because they are binding on ell members of society They must be permanent because they apply to all times and placesWhat motives religion apart are forcible enough to compel legislators rulers and magistrates to be equitable and Iim partial in their decisions What guarantee have we that they will not be biased by prejudice and selfinterest Will a thirst for fame or a desire for public approbation prove a sufficient in centive for them 16 do right How often has not this very love of glory and esteem impelled then to trample on the rights and liberties of the many in order to win the approbation of a few sycophants just as Roboam oppressed his subjects that he might be admired and praised by his young courtiers and as Alexander en slaved nations to receive the applaus of the fickle Athenians Would you vote for a Presidential candidate that avowed atheistic princi plea I am sure you Mould not You would instinctively mistrust him for an unbelieving President would ignore the eternal laws of justice and the eternal laws of justice are the basis of civic legislationIt not appear that vice recedes in the United States in proportion as public education advances Statistics I fear would go far to prove the contrary to be the fact The newspapers published in our large cities are everyday filled with startling accounts of deep laid schemes of burglary bank defalcations premediI tatel murders and nets of refined llicen tiousness These enormities are perpetrated for the most part not by unlettered criminals but by individuals of consum mate address and skill they betray a well disciplined mind uncontrolled by morality and religion How true are the words of Kempis I Sublime words make not a man holy and just but a virtuous life niaketh him dear to God If neither the vengeance of the civil power nor the hope of emoluments nor I the esteem of our felipwtnen no r the natural love of justice npr the influence of education and culture nor all these motives combined can suffice to maintain peace and order in society where shall we thud an adequate incentive exact of IM a loyal

wellbeing of society Worldly politeness devoid of religion is cold formal and heartless it soou degen erates into hollow ceremony Good breeding inspired by religion ndI charity inculcates a constant

British House of Commons Government Can Not Longer Ignore This Important Problem The Bill Does Not Provide For Compulsory Purchase of Land AN ACUTE CRISIS IN AGRICULTURE The Chief Secretary of Ireland George Wyndham introduced the Irish land bill in the House of Commons Tuesday Mr Wyndham said the object of the bill was lo amend the land purchase law The Government could not ignore the problem owing to the acute crisis in agricul ture which was now at a standstill and in view of the fact that there was an alarming decrease in the advances for the purchase of land owing to the unwilling less of the land owners to sell The main provision of the bill authorizes the Land Commission to take over the whole or any part of an estate whose owner is willing to sell The commis neon will then resell it to the tenants but the assent of threequarters of the num ber of tenants is necessary before the commission will undertake to transfer part of the estate The landlord may noteareaefrom the commission thus becoming a tenant purchaser in case he desires to continue to reside on the estate The brit does not provide for compulsory pur chase All the transfer arrangements are areesimplified ns much as possible The bill provides that cash not exceeding 3000 000 to be outstanding at any one time may be advanced to the commission by the exchequer tints enabling purchases to be made on a vastly larger scale than ever before John Redmond the leader of the Irish Nationalists gave notice in the House of Commons Tuesday of a motion equiva 1lent to a vote of censure on the Speaker havinggmade the Colonial Secretary Joseph Chamberlain withdraw his remark The honorable gentleman is a good judge of traitors addressed to John Dillon Irish Nationalist in the House March 20 which led
