Distinguished Spoakor1oh Ills Many Hearers SpellBound A Lecture Brimful of Histor ical Facts and Present Statistics GOOD FOR KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS No event in recent years shed as much luster on the Catholics of this city as the lecture delivered by the Hon E J McDermott at Macauleys Theater last Sun day night A larger and more brilliant and intelligent audience never assembled in that popular place of amusement Every seat in the theater was filled and people sat on the stairs leading to the balcony Hundreds of people had to stand ill the rear of the theater and there were hundreds of others who went home being unable to gain admission to the house The lecture was given under the auspices of the Knights of Columbus a leading Catholic organization All the Catholics of the city are under a debt of gratitude to the Knights of Columbus which they will find it difficult to repay Nearly all the Catholic clergymen in the city occu pied seats in the boxes and front sections of the parquet On the stage with Mr McDermott were Messrs J J Caffrey and P H Callahan members of the committee selected by the Knights of Columbus to arrange for the lecture The lecturer was introduced in a few brief words by Mr P H Calla hanMr McDermott prefaced his lecture by stating that he felt highly complimented by the presence of such a magnificent audience He said he would attempt to deliver a lecture and not a stump speech and referred briefly to a certain class of infidels atheists and others who made a i living by slandering the Catholic church I It would be worse than useless to attempt to give anything like a report of Mr McI Dermotts remarks It had to be to be properly appreciated It isheardII hoped that Mr McDermott can pre vailed upon to publish the lecture in its I entirely It was what he called ita- I lecture It was replete with historical I facts concerning the Cathoic church itsII teachings in general and in regard to the Papacy and Leo III in particular The lecturer told nothing that was new to Catholics although it may have been I decidedly new to nonCatholics The lecture was a plain straightforward statement of facts put together bya master hand The distinguished speaker avoided every occasion of offending even in the most remote degree any of our dissenting brethren The audience was as appre ciative as it was large and liberally ap plauded Mr McDermotts frequent and verIdlctlecture the kind one seldom hears in aII lifetime the work of a scholar or a man I j who thoroughly understands his ground I and who does not hesitate to speak the truthIt I may be as well to give a few sen tences from the conclusion of the lecture In speaking of Leo XIII Mr McDermott saidII sick that he is dying deadj but he still lives and his clear sweet I voice not only reverberates through the Vatican and the grand dome of St Peters but it is echoed over valleys and mountains aud seas and is heard in alltt quarters of the earth with loving rever ence by his flock and with profound re spect by all men of intellect and culture He is a fit leader for a great church that was designed for rich and poor for the unlettered laborer and the polished scholar for the free man and for the king for the twilight and the full blaz ing splendor of this modern civilization Like a sturdy ship on a stormswept sea I this ark of Christianity has been carried upward and downward by the raging I I billows of human passion but thoughIj I laboring hard and threatened destruction it has still kept itaI I I course straight onward with the I for its compass and God for its pole star and today as on yesterday and a thousand years ago it still bears aloft the bright I treasures and the highest hopes of man kind You may not sail under the ban neryou may not be able conscientiously to join its ranks but in proportion to your intellect and learning you will reo spct and honor it for its past services and its high alms It does not point us the way to wealth and worldly power It can only promise to those that follow its teachings not openly and formally but sincerely and faithfully that they may hope at least to save that soul which in the words of Cato shall endure forever II The stars shall fade away the sun himself Grow dim with age and natures sinking years But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth Unheardamidst the war of elements The wreck of matter and the crush o worlds Whatever may be your belief o doubts whether we agree or differ Jet U4 all at l Mt look up with reverence to s J v the Almighty above us and look arouw us not with suspicion or contempt hatred but with brotherly love for ou fellowmen whether Jew or Gentile Christian or Pagan Catholic or Protest aut MEETS WITH FAVOR Proposed Home and LunchI 1Room For Catholic-

SATURDAY JANUARY 24 1903 MURDER Is this a civilized community or have we a reign of the vendetta Murder and attempts at murder arc Thofcharges of murder and murderou assault predominate on our court dockets and too frequently thi culprits escape with light penalty or none And it is getting worse One day this week there were in the Police Court six cases of malicious cutting and shooting and in the past week three mur ders one at least entirely unprovoked and inexcusable Antonio Gegg a young mat well and favorably known turned and collided withs a street corner two men one of whom Willian Pryse without waiting for explana tion pulled his revolver and killer Gegg There had been no quarrel the men were strangers and had never met before They had e bumped against each other at night on a slippery sidewalk that which is liable to happen as well as the fate of Gegg to any one Shock ing to contemplate that in this city we are in constant danger of being shot or cut to death without even a warningThe newspaper reports show a deplorable condition but they arc f not all The murderous assaults not published the instances of in tended murder prevented by for bearance of the intended victim or interference of bystanders are not known to the public Three men went into a restaurant and ate supper without paying for it As they started out they were requested to pay but refused cursing the keeper and daring him to try to make them pay They went out and stood in front of the restaurant for some time Had the keeper attempted to prevent their going out or went to the door after them he would have been killed for two had pistols and the other a knife ready He discreetly chose to let them have theirsuppers i gratis and submit to their abuse A man stopped a street car took a back seat and did not pay hisi r fare The motorman stopped the car walked back politely asked for the fare which the man finally paid cursing and applying vile epithets to tha motorman who said nothing Afterward the fellow continued his profanity denouncing the motorman and street car company As he arose to leave the car he pushed aside his coat exposing the butt of a revolver remarking that it was a good thin- gtbewas polite collecting that fare Only the forbearance of the motorman and passengers prevented murder At a dance a young man swag gered around jostling the dancers He was remonstrated with andl quick as a flash pulled his gun By a well directed blow and promptt assistance of bystanders he was overpowered disarmed and ejected These are instances at random in the past few days But what else are we to expect when men and1 even boys arid women have the pistol or knife seme of them both ready to kill and seem anxious for a pretextYet have law against the carrying of concealed deadly weapons against disorderly con duct and rowdyism and have officers whose sworn duty it is to enforce it and see that violators are arrested prosecuted and punished There is too much laxity too much favoring indulgence shown this 1 class Will it go on until public forbearance reaches the limit andI the people in their anger arouse n f- lF aar r and in mob violence get rid of tbis element of savagery its aiders and abettors Sometimes such thing become necessary however undesirable and wrong But it will not require many such wanton murders as that of Gegg to bring such a crisis It devolves upon the authorities to do their duty and insure lawabiding people ample protection and until they do it the responsibility rests upon the officials STOP THE RACKET The Central Labor Union circus is still on to the delight of labors enemies Such dissension tricker and disorder is disgraceful to all cpncerued and certainly injurious to labor It is high time that con servatve trades unionists with 110 axes political or otherwise to grind should call a halt on pro ceedings that are ridiculous as wel as shamefulWe neither side It mat ters not which side is most to blame or most guilty both are tto blame and both guilty Politics iiis at bottom of it all not on one side but on both sides The issue is for political advantage not labors interests or benefit Personally we are friendly to and respect all individually but must condemn the purpose and method of both parties alike To put iit mildly good men have lost their heads and are being used by politi cal tricksters It is strange tha men of intelligence and hones motive as we know them to be can be led and goaded to such ex tremes by schemers who care nqth ing for them nor the interests of laborStop it and let the politicians go about their business This mus be done if not by the wrangler themselves then by the labo unionists who are indifferent to the likes and dislikes of all politicians A COMMON PEST Paying money is at no him agreeable to the payer since iit always involves inconvenience anc selfdenial to some extent It is a test however doubtful others maybe of ones promptness and relia bility if not honesty The slow pay and the bad pay are the cause of much worry drawback litiga tion war loss and suffering to the individual community trade and government If people would only pay what they owe when due how mach easier things would run more peaceful equitable satisfact ory and progressive each bearing his own burden But it is not so Tardiness and failure to pay debts whether because of thoughtlessness improvidence or dishonesty is altogether too prevalent And church members in church and charitable affairs are no exception inconsistent with their profession as this may seem Indeed in such cases the obligation being only moral and the sum porportionately small the dereliction is the more reprehensible and less excusable But there are those who not only evade payment but even after as suming such obligations fail 01 refuse to pay although by so doing others must pay for them an ele ment of meanness added In every church benevolent and even charitable organization we have such peoplea detriment burden disturbers and maligners of those they impose upon There is not a pastor of a church an officer or worker of any organiza tion but has been fleeced and abused by them In some fraternal organizations where frequent and regular payment of dues and o assessments arc required this imposition is carried to the extreme to such an extent that it is difficul to induce anyone to accept the office for collection of money even though it pay a salary becaus the incumbent is sure to be subjected to financial loss worry and wholesale denunciation try as one may to be obliging as well as faithful to duty There have been instances in this city where such officials have become embarrassed their business ruined and they bankrupted thereby and Catholic organizations of professedly practical Catholics to promote brotherhood and Christian charity are in eludedThose people profess to be re ligious moral honest appear and are looked upon as respectable Are they not really only parasite upon the Christian body devoid call conscientious spirit and sense of honormore commonly and perhaps correctly termed impostor and deadbeatsdespite haughtj or devout pretensions and good clothesBut we have them it seems everywhere mores the pity They should be routed out Their rid dance would be a blessing and ben efit The BritishJapan alliance the anchor of British influence and check to RussianChinese aggression in the Far East is having a hard time causing internal dissension in British affairs and continua protests from Japan Several of the British colonies principally British Columbia insist on exclud ing Japanese immigrants pass law to that effect which upon protest from Japan are vetoed by the British Government Then the Colonial Legislatures pass like law again Japan protests some more and the British Government vetoes Now British Columbia has passed- a more stringent exclusion law than ever elected a solid antiJap anese delegation to the Canadian Parliament instructed to demand that the Canadian Government in dorse their protest against the veto of the exclusion law which is sure to come from the Imperial Government as per the BritishJapanese treaty The British colonies on the Pacific are bitterly opposed to Jap anese as well as Chinese immigrants and threaten to resist their admis sion by force The situation is becoming serious The exclusion of Japanese from British territory will be a violation and nullification of the BritishJapan treaty to the detriment of British interests in the Far East the enforced admission af Japanese to the protesting colonies will cause turmoil and possibly revolution in the colonies The Court of Appeals has again decided that Col Wooley must pay his city takes For twentyfive years he has resisted

AT HAND Protestants nUll Catholics In Ireland llavo Set Strife Aside Spirit of Mutual Respect Fol lows Agreement on the Laud Question Great Decline in Flax Industry Has Injured People In Ulster GUY CRAMERS LAST IRISH LETTER Guy Cramer the Intelligent and un prejudiced correspondent of the Chicago Tribune in a recent letter to his paper says among other things- It is these religious differences which even in Belfast where the strife has taken the form of street brawls and bat tles are being obliterated by the ques tion of land settlement appealing to Catholic and Protestant alike This is the one problem on which they have found a common footing Rent does not respect religion and the love of theland is as strong in the heart of the Ulster Orangeman as in the breast of the Con naught Catholic Belfast with its ex tensive industries has been a leading factor in bringing about this union Thousands are employed in Its shipyards There are thousands more at work in the big linen manufactures These men have been drawn chiefly from the coun try districts Ministers traders and pro fesslonal men of the city came from the same quarter in great numbers The city has served to lessen the pressure on the land and to this fact undoubtedly is due much of Ulsters prosperity In the country districts you find great prosperity except for the check that has been laid by emigration draining the ranks of labor until it is now most difficult to secure help Englishmen talk of the futility of expecting prosperity and a tenant living in any sort of comfort out of the small holdings in the West and South of Ireland Ulster contradicts any such statement According to the last census reports of the 490301 holdings In Ireland 168272 lie in Ulster province Of this number no fewer than 114580 are under eighteen acres In congested Con naught province the total of holdings of that size is less than 90000 In Mun ster and Leinster provinces the figures are far less The land fight in Ulster has been vigor ously carried on for years The main factor in the life of the province for years and years has been the Orange society Within the last seven years however Protestant tenants have been asking themselves if the landlord Orange- men were really so deeply concerned in the cry of antiPopery as they profess They raked up countless instances where the Orange landlord had been trying to raise rents and had not shown that patriotism to his Orange tenants that his professions to the Orange society should have prompted This brought the first split and since that time the power of the landlord has been constantly cur tailed The extension of the local Government act to Ireland aided this work further in Ulster The privileges thus conferred resulted in the gentry being set out of political life It paved too the means of Roman Catholics displacing Protestants in county and dis trict council life The farmers have taken up politics in their demands for land reform Unionists have been dwindling with each election and it is predicted by the men who know the country best that the last representative will be ousted from his Parliamentary seat when the next election comes When Gladstone brought in his home rule bill in 188G the agitation for land reform in Ulster was in the hands of the Ulster land committee a cooperative and nonrepresentative body The leaders of the organization and a majority of its members were Unionists out and out and its work became paralyzedand nothing of consequence practically was done to further land reform until 1893 when the Liberal land committee of Ulster was formed Its members and creators consisted chiefly of Protestant home rulers and earnest land reformers immediately joined hands with them and a determined agitation was pushed The active spirits included the Rev J B Armour the Rev Richard Lyttle and William Killen son of the President of the Presbyterian university The move ment was quite as much a Protestant home rule movement as a land agitation Its strength and growth impressed the imperial government and the result was the passage of the land act of 1896 In 1897 however the Government sent down the body known as the CtFry com mission to inquire into the working of the Irish land acts This body was cre ated at the wish of the landlords and the Ulster tenants feared it was to aim at some infringement of their custom or to bring euch pressure on the Jand commis sion that it would cease allowing rent reductionsIn the tenants flung political dif ferences to the winds and the practically breathless Ulster land committee came out of its grave and joined hands with the more vigorous Liberal and National Union of Ulster These and other elements formed the Ulster Tenants Defense Association an organization which knew no political or religious differencesLast Belfast saw the Ulster con vention in favor of compulsory purchase This was one of the moat remarkable conventions the world has seen There were almost 10000 delegates 6000 being from the farming class e were more than 500 byterianaai UniUi tau clergymen present and hundrwof iJ u Roman Catholic priests District and county councilmen were there in great numbers and the need for a llarger organization was determiued on the present Ulster Farmers and Laborers Union being the result This work is going on said Dr Lyttle with the utmost harmony If there are any street fights in Belfast or Ulster today they are disgraceful scenes carried out by rough fellows who fre quent the public house not the church and who follow the publican or saloon keeper and not any religious law Some times landlordism persists in using such weapons But religious strife is rapidly disappearing The land appeals to Catholic and Protestant alike Ulster will live down its scenes of disorder of former years and Ireland will yet have a united people here We desire to help the laborers because the drain of emigration is beginning to tell on the life of the coun try Men can not be found to perform labor Consequently the movement must have the support of all classes It appeals to merchants and shopkeepers to keep laborers and artisans here The business of these men is diminished by every person who emigrates Landlords are beginning to think matters over They see that if they can secure a fair price for their land it can be properly invested and they will be relieved of the worry and cost of lawsuits when the rental wrangle arises every fifteen yearswhen they oppose rent reductions that are fast sending many of their num ber to bankruptcy Lately the move ment appeals to all lovers of peace jus tice and progress for there can be no prosperity happiness or peace in Ireland until the evils of landlordism cease and the people are secured in the enjoyment of the results of their own labor and are thus enabled to accumulate capital for extended enterprise and development of the resources of their country This briefly as possible is the condi tion of the one internal trouble which has always threatened Irelandthe Ire land of the north and the other Ireland of the south and west To enter into any account of detailed conditions throughout Ulster would be merely a long story of prosperity of farmers on small holdings There is no complaint to be heardexcept the old cry of the tenant that he wants the land on which he is dependent for his own The peo ple live in clean comfortable homes They are cleanly and turn happy faces to the world Where laud purchase has been allowed in a limited way there the better the conditions The one change is the great decline of the flax industry There was no profit said a holder of fifty acres who formerly cultivated the fiber for we couldnt get laborers Theyve all left the country I think you will find most of them in Chicago today Flax requires much care and attention and you must have labor We need to keep our young people here if Ireland is ever to grow to its old self again As a result of this dearth of labor linen manufacturers in Belfast spend millions of dollars annually in purchasing flax for their needs outside of Ireland The land purchase demand is constantly growing In Ulster just as it is throughout Ireland Religious strife is gradually but surely disappearing as the people see that their common interests require unity of thought and action So the black north may yet turn out to be one of the greatest factors in work ing out Irelands ultimate salvation FATHER PHELAN Rector of the Sacred Heart Retreat to Address- Y M I TTrinity Council Y M I

were ap pointed a committee to make all arrange ments for the outing The roster of members in the revised bylaws was eleven names short An extra pag will be added before the books are distributed HINTS ON STYLE The new silk and linen batistes are charming with dainty lace stripes lines of color and flowers woven in so that they have the appearance of embroidery The most charming surprises among the new materials for summer are in the cotton fabrics and pretty mixtures of silk and cotton cotton and linen and all linenThe pastel tints seem to prevail both in mottled and plain gowns and the em broidery is usually in white Ribbon ef fects in stripes are carried out very pret tily in some of the patterns- A pretty new skirt model for crepe de chine and veiling is all in panels joined together by an open stitch and gradu ating in width from the waist Embroid ery or a band of lace finishes this skirt at the hem Some pretty models for crepe de chine or mousseline are shown with a shirred hip yoke shirred bodice and wide tucks around the skirt The yoke is of tiny bands fagotted together and the bertha and vest are of lace Printed organdies are in great variety with and without satin finished stripes and new cheviots and shirtings for shirt waists surpass anything previous seasons have produced There are plain cheviots in plain colors and panama weaves as glossy almost as silk and pretty stripes of every description Mercerized effects are quite as much in evidence as ever among the cotton fabrics The narrow ribbon introduced in the embroidery on the Swiss muslins is Indeed a novel feature but no doubt it was suggested by the same combina tion in the embroidered trimmings brought out early in the present season The shirtings show the general ten dency of all materials to be fine thin and soft Some of them hue a crepe finished ground while others are dotted over with little overshot figures which add a glossy effect They are mostly in dainty stripes on a white ground or in plain colors with little selfcolor designs The new foulards show satin stripes and figures in the same tint as the ground and forming part of it the pat terns scattered over them regardless Pongee effects in tint and weave are brought out very effectively among the new foulards and then you may have checks if you like small checks of two shades of one color broken by a white line which forms a large check Linen gowns were the swell thing last summer and they bid fair to head the list in the coming onethat is in this particular order of gown Elaborate hand embroidery and heavy laces will make them quite elegant enough for anything except a ball gown or a dinner gown and as you can have any thinness or thickness of linen you desire it is a suitable material for both cool and warm days CHARITY EUCHRE The charity euchre announced to take place at Mackin Council club house next Wednesday afternoon and night promises to be a most enjoyable affair Miss Mary Goss heads the committee having this affair fn charge the other ladies being Misses Mamie Hermann Josephine Hoertz Fanny Cunniffe Rose Sack steder and Mamie Higgins They have secured a number of handsome prizes

State Committeeman Charles Meacham who seeks an injunction against the Democratic State primary set for May next Under the decision no further ac tion can be taken till April and it there fore looks like a knock out for the opposition to the primary The State primary however will have no bearing on the one to be held this summer to nominate candidates for local offices Kid boots and shoes may be beautifully cleaned by dipping a little bit of sponge in white of egg to which has been added a little ink and a few drops of oil and tubbing well t r SUDDEN ATTACK Edward Fanning Died Tuos day From
