as Cardinal Gibbons Gives Facts 1ndFlgures in New Yearsf Sermon Irish PrlcstH Have Preached the Faith in Every City of and Town SOME THINGS WORTH BEMEMBERIRG Cardinal Gibbons preached a sermon on the New Year in the Cathedral at Baltimore last Sunday There was no attempt at oratory It was simplyn r statement of the affairs of the Catholic church In America It came from the head of the church in this country and is well worth reading Cardinal Gibbons gave facts and figures that are worth remembering Ills sermon in part was as followsA of the church in America would be manifestly incomplete if the name or the illustrious Archbishop Car roll were omitted John Carroll was appointed first Bishop of Baltimore by Pope Pius III The sermon at the consecration in England was preached by I the Rev Charles Plowden who said the day would come when the daughter would surpass the motherwhen the church In America would outgrow in numbers and influence the church in England 4 His words have been abundantly verified for today the Catholic church in America vastly excels the church in Eng land in the number of her hierarchy her clergy and lalety and in the splendor of her institutions her religion her charity and education At the present time a century from the day of Bishop Carroll the Catholic church in the United States has a hierarchy of 100 Bishops 12500 priests and a Catholic population numbering from 12000000 to 14000000 If we include our Porto Rican and Philip pine possessions the number of Catholics under the aegis would amount to fully 20000000 or more J4LeLnsnowcoaiderto ivllatprOYI dential agencies we are to ascribe this marvelous growth Apart from the nat ural increase and from conversions we are indebted to the tide of immigration which has steadily flowed to the shores of America The first country to which this State owes a debt of gratitude is England for Maryland the mother church of the United States was founded by English Catholics You will all I am sure agree with me that no country has contributed co efficiently to the establishment and growth of the Catholic religion among us than faithful Ireland Whatever may have been the unhappy condition that led to the expatriation of so many oft Irelands sons and daughters from their native land Almighty God has made their exile subservient to higher andt holler purposes I can safely assert that there is scarcely a city or town through iis out the United States where the Catholic religion has not been preached and sus tained by priests and laymen of Irish birth or extraction Ireland has certainly been the apostle of nations The church in America is also indebted for her progress to France Germany Bohemia Poland and other parts of Northern Europe And thus we see that while every na tion in Europe contributed a block of marble tothe Washington monument at the capital so have the various couutries of the old continent contributed a column f to the edifice of the Catholic church off America And as the marble slabs of the monument are chastened and whitened by the climate so thatthey appear as if cut from the same quarry in a like man ner the various nations congregated inJJ this country are assimilated into oneI homogeneous mass by religious training and social intercourse so as to form butii one body in Christ 1000 FOR JOHN J MALONEY John J

JANUARY 10 1903 DESERVES SUCCESS The effort of Very Rev Father Bouchet to form an association of Catholic women to look after the comfort and wellbeing of our Cath olic working girls is timely and deserves the earnest and active co operation of Catholic women only in the Cathedral parish notI throughout the city Working girls in a city have many trials hardships and dangers and should be aided in their struggle for an honest and respectable livelihood This certainly1 appeals strongly to and if the every true woman opportunity is afforded them and the proper way pointed out we be speak for Very Rev Father Bouchet success in this the latest of his works for the good of humanity GU1DI AND THE FRIARS After all the vituperative protests about the expulsion of the friars from the Philippines it is some what disappointing to read the following from Archbishop Cha pelle who will hardly be charged with not knowing what he is talking about- Monsignor t Guldis negotiations will concern indemnities the prop erties of the religious and so forth but the question of the expulsion of the religious is not in his power It is not in the power of the United States nor in the mind of the Holy See It is outside of the power of the United States because of the willtreaty4 4certainly not promote offensive measures against his faithful and unoffending children So the friars are not to be ex pelled their lands and houses con fiscated their churches desecrated the American Bill of Rights and Constitution violated and so on nor was it ever contemplated The United States Government has not and never had such powerand the United States Government does not propose that which it has no power to do We trust our solic itous though indiscreet and noisy cotemporaries are becoming pacified over the dangers to the church in the Philippines HAS NO BEARING No one claims that all members of labor unions are saints nor de nies that they rare at times guilty of criminal acts But it is claimed that labor unions and the vast majority of their members urge observance of the law disapprove of lawlessness and strive to pre vent it It is no more just to con demn labor unions for the misdeeds of a few than to denounce all em ployers because some are dishonest and oppressive There is rarely a strike or other labor disturbance but wrongs are committed by parties on one or both sides Unless such misdeed can be proven to have been approved by employer or union neither should be blamed for itj as the act of individuals those individuals alone are justly to blame So the evidence being presented before the Anthracite strikes Commission of lawless acts during the five months strike even if committed by union miners should not be charged against the miners Union which advised against such conduct and whose 150000 trikejs departed them selves with the strictest propriety d Besides those lawless acts can not JM5cpHStructed as justification or palliation for the injustice and hhuses by the operators complained ofby the miners This evidence Jof outlawry like many other thintjs brought out in the investi U r 1t11 gation has no real bearing on the issue before the commission The grand juries and courts are the proper places to bring up such mat tens to have them restrained or the perpetrators punished and if the operators pursue this course they can safely rely on the earnest co operation of the union miners SEEKER OF NOTORIETY The Philadelphia preacher who in a sermon alluded to American society women as cigarette smokers liquor drinkers and acting like men is receiving proper condemna tion Morality or immorality are not confined to any one Mass in this country There are silly and even vulgar and debasing among our society folk as well as others but no more in proportion The American people from the upper tendom of society to the humbles walks of life rank with any and are superior to most nations in morals refinement and intelligence True there are exceptions folly immorality apd criminality are ob served in society devotees as in other classes and deserve condem nation and it is the duty of min isters of religion to condemn but it is unjust and certainly not pro motive of morals to falsely charge all society folk any particular class or the whole people with the in discretions and wrong doing of their black sheep The em phatic yet respectful protest of our Louisville society girls against the libel of the Philadelphia divine reflects credit upon them and ex poses the uumuuliness and and in decency of the pulpit sensation chaser who for the sake of noto riety casts a slur upon American womanhood FINANCIAL A proper evidence of conditions and basis of comparison is the financial report of the first week of the new year at New York and London the money centers of the United States and Great Britain Both were disappointingthe first agreeably so the other the reverse At New York the bank statement showed increases in sum held in reserves end deposits for the week money plentiful decreases in loans and rate of interest and dis counts At London the decreases are in sum held reserves and deposits the increase in loans rate of interest and discounts money stringent and yearend settlements extended The future promises a continuance of these conditions respectively At New York money advanced to South and West on crops is yet to come in increasing he surplus and reserve and indi cating low rates and activity for the year At London depleted surplus and reserve no unusual resources available stringency and depression with higher rates of interest and discount seem inevit able Reports from all over the United States are similarly favor able and the outlook for the year is one of active business improve ment and extension of trade All banks have funds and loans and discounts show a remarkable fall ing off German statesmen and editors are condemning and ridiculing Uncle Sam and his Monroe doctrine and urging the Kaiser to disregard such arrogant assumption in dealing with the Venezuelan question Uncle Sam has simply given warning England and later France affected like contempt for the Mon roe doctrine but finally refrained from violating Uncle Sams de- l dared policy undoubtedly with U 0 y 7 relutance but they heeded and obI served it Germany like all European governments with a yearning for American territory may fum and jeer at the refusal of the United States to permit the gratification of the Kaisers ambition for a South American empire But South America iis not Africa Nearly a hundred years ago the United States declared that this continent shout not come under control of foregi powers and again warns Germany England and Italy that it will still be insisted upon whether settle ment is arrived at in the Venezuelan and other South and Central American disputes John Dillon M P leaderof the Irish National party in the Hous of Commons has been compelle to retire because of ill health due to overwork His condition is serious bordering on collapse Absolut rest has been ordered by physician in the hope that he might recuper ate by the time Parliament reas sembles next month Mr Dillon is an able fearless and shrews parliamentarian and his service are greatly needed just now whet Irish matters must be forced upon the attention of Parliament despite the determination of the

good honest courteous charitable be loved by all who knew them and models of propriety and noble man hood Their good deeds and ben efits to their fellow creatures are their lasting memorial The death of such men is indeed a loss to any commuity The agitation to abolish the bar maid in English ale houses is being revived But notwithstanding the debasement and sacrifice of health and morals resulting from the system there is little hope of reform Ever since England has been ia kingdom and ale was brewed the barmaid served it and why change now The English are slow alas too slowto alter a

a J J o r r HOME RULE For Ireland is Only a Short Time Off Says Sir Anthony McDonnell Man Selected by the King to Pave the Way For a Land Bill Once Started the Movement Will Work Itself Out Satisfactorily DISCONTENT IS NOT DISLOYALTY Guy Cramer the fair nndjinprejudiced correspondent of the Chicago Tribune in a recent letter from Dublin to his paper gives at length the views and aims of Sir Antony MacDonell who is at the bead of a movement toward purchas ing the land of Ireland for the tenants He says among other things Sir Antony MacDonell the man se lected by King Edward to break the way for the land purchase act is a plain straightforward official who is looked to more than any local governmental offi cial to aid in bringing about the solution of the Irish question The force and determination of this official who is now practically at the head of the British civil service can be read in his broad square cut face He is short in stature and that fact adds to the air of dogged determination which is written in his features He is not here in Ireland merely to fill a governmental chair and draw a salary He is here to find a rem edy and the right one to end the tur moil which has spread poverty and suf fering over the island As he said in a frank way when questioned about himself I am here merely to do what I can I have given much attention to the situa tion in Ireland I am not a conservative I am a liberal I have taken this post under a conservative government I did not want Itj but I hope that I may be able to work Some good I am independent I do not care for official positions I am still on the Indian advisory council and merely loaned here I assumed the place with the understanding that II would hold it as long as I could in the light of my own ideas or as long as IIthought it right that I should Sir Antony talked at length of the promised land bill The measure I have all reason to believe said he will deal with the problem on a broad and just basis It will aim to work out a plan for universal land purchase and the consequent reclaiming of Ireland from its present state of ruining unrest Both sides are sick of the present situation It has gone from bad to worse I certainly believe that land settlement and the end of Irish discontent are near at hand Some champions of land purchase have in sisted he was reminded that any land purchase law to be effective must be compulsory compelling the landlords to sell out or at least giving the Govern mentcondemnatory power Do you be lieve that is the case There will be no compulsory course in my opinion replied the under Secretary It is not needed Compulsion runs the hazard of engendering bad feeling which might prove a hindering bar to settlement I believe it is unnecessary Terms can be arranged which will be so attractive to landlords that they will be glad to dispose of their holdings But suppose a few should hold out and refuse to sell their estates was asked Would compulsion be needed thenUnquestionably no replied Sir Antony Once start purchase on a large scale and It will work itself out A few landowners could not bold out against it Suppose their estates were ringed about with thousands of tenant purchasers all paying installments to the Government and knowing that at the end of fortynine years they would own their holdings in fee What would be the condition of the tenants oti the estates which had not been sold Why the situation can be easily foreseende mands of no rent we want the same thing as our neighbors all that It would be impossible to hold out Voluntary land purchase once started will work to the desired end landtordsIwho are opposing the settlement move ment set up the claim that tenants may in future years repudiate their debt to the Government and not pay their pur chase installments There is no danger of that asserted Sir Antony The danger to the Government is nonexistent The Irish peasant is built of that character which can be depended upon He wants to own his land He is grateful for the least that is granted him Why then if the Govern ment gives him the one object of bis life ownership of his landshould he ever turn on the giver There is no danger of that Purchase already allowed is proof to the contrary of this argument The payments are met promptly and gladly The Irish peasant is a conservative if he is given conditions which bring peace and lend impetus to his industry There is no need of discussing that phase of the question The Irish peasant can be depended oti absolutely to carry out his obligations under land purchase Some affect to see that land owner ship will lead to disloyalty on the part of the Irish people will lead to further unrest and demands for separation and independence was suggested That too must be dented was the reply There is no disloyalty amopg tke farm ers or the people of Ireland today There is ditcoatsHt It Ie widespread and sarii one It couldnet be otherwise

see the amount of such legislation clearly the work for the cities or the country interested which is doneor left undoneIn Parliament at all times There is no doubt too but i that the Irish people

Offer Every AsslstanceflleasureIs Ho Says England May Ask to be Annexed to the United States RELIGIOUS PROBLEM IS YERY EASY William OBrien M P is one of the Irish leaders in British Parliament who has full confidence in the proposed Irish land purchase scheme To a representative of the Chicago Tribune he said recentlyI confident that a big bill and a good bill is what we will get One chief reason for this is because all of Secre tary Wyndhams interests lie along that course He can do nothing which can really injure us He can not break up the Irish party On the other hand we can wreck his entire career if any land bill such as the one introduced a few months ago is offered which does not carry terms which will finally and effectively solve this land trouble If Mr Wyndham takes up this ques tion and asks its solution on a fair and I just basis he will have earned an honor which may open an almost limitless political future to him It will bring peace to the government But to do that he must approach this question in a broad and statesmanlike spirit and he must bodily push aside many of the legal cowebs which the hardened old spiders 11- of Dublin castle may try to spin around himI mean the landlords for they have whomlireworked If Wyndham lives up to his promise then next year will see the settlement of the land question We will not insist on a compulsory purchase act Ifa way can be shown byIwhich the result can be brought I voluntarily In fact the later method Ist6be greatly preferred The Irish party will offer every assistance if the j government shows a tendency to deal 1 with tnis problem in a way which will settle the trouble for all time But if more tinkering legislation is attempted it will be the same story A small bill will be fought line by line If a measure which does not attempt settlement on a big scale is entered Mr Wyndham might just a well use the paper it is written on to light his pipe for that is the utmost useihewllieyerI get out of it There is another good reason why we expect that a good bill will be presented to parliament Hundreds of landlords are facing ruin if the question is not settled soon Their rents have been 1 shrinking constantly since the act of 1881 which created the fixing of judicial rents A certain number of years rental as a purchase price means a vastly differ ent snmof money now than what it would have meant then The next fix ing of rents by the land courts may bring I a further cut in addition to the 40 percent reductions which have been made since 1881 t Delay can not injure the tenant much more He has reached about the last degree of discomfort and privation He can walt for some time if need be But the landlord if he waits may face heavyI financial Ilosses for land purchase and the resettlement of all tenant holders must come in time It can never be finally averted For the benefit of those landlords whoI are in financial difficulties owing to heavy mortgages lying on their estates Mr OBrien believes that the Govern ment could easily carry out a refunding system which would reduce the heavy rate of interest now paid on these charges Many landlords said he are now paying 5 6i7 and as high ns eight per cent interest on mortgages on their property In these cases the State should take up these mortgages and thus scale down the interest charges A simple refunding act would be all that would be needed This is done with Government bonds or consols and with the bonds and obligations of munici palities In this way the Interest on the new mortgages could be brought down as low as 3 per cent This would be a great aid and inducement to the landlord to sell his land for his income on the purchase money would not be subject to so great a drain But how can the problem be solved of getting old tenants whose families have had certain patches for generations to give up their cramped holdings and sub wit to resettlement taking up new homes with enlarged patches in possibly wholly another portion of their country was asked That obstacle is frequently advanced I know1I admitted Mr OBrien The congested district board has found it difficult to get tenants to give up their scanty patches so that larger holdings may be formed and take new homes But that difficulty will disappear in time In some cases there is no use denying the only way to do will be to allow the old people to remain there until they die But enlarged holdings can be given to the younger tenants There need be no fear that they will not accept them England sees that it must be home rule or separation I believe the mass of the Irish people would be content now If they were given a local Parliament pre sumisz of course that the land question is disposed of You cant tell what the future may bring about

Ulster province the Protestant North of Ireland has ever been hostile to home rule is not regarded- as a bar by Mr OBrien At any event said he there is no Ulster problems when it comes to the demand for land purchse The tenants of all Ireland are a unit on that issue The reason that a fight against home rule has been set up in Ulster is because they have the fear that home rule would mean Rome rule It can not be denied that the Pope is still held to be a great figure up there But their fears are wholly misplaced and that religious prejudice is dying out No one is more tolerant or liberal in the matter of religion than the Irishman And the Orangeman is an Irishman turned inside out Thats all there is to it This religious difference is rapidly disappearing and when home rule comes to Ireland as it must it will be accepted by all LAID TO REST Little Falck Wolford Sea of Agues Wollord Little Fuiclc was one of those children which we sometimes see bright and in telligent beyond their
