a review of the alms and objects of the Order of United American Mechanics and that their opposition to immigration was unAmerican this being the chief contention Inb article Here is an article from the New York Sun In which awriter states that the country would be in a bad quandary without immigration and tells how benefi cial the tide of immigration is for the life and habits of our people North of the Potomac and Ohio rivers and east of the Mississippi river live about half of all the peoII pIe of continental United States Within that section included in the foregoing halt are ten million per sons who when the census man comes round give him some place In a foreign country as that of their birth Hence when starting out Is for the day If one lives in this in dustrial section of America one Is likely to run up against a foreign born person In nearly every fourth man or woman one meets And the stream of Immigration has not dried upl There Is no danger that twill t do so but just suppose that these ton millions of men and women were to pack up their be longings late on some afternoon and f that night depart for the lands they came from I Reared In rural regions of Europe these people can have no special fondness for our stifling tenements and our unprotected coal mines American cities can show many quite as un pardonable tenements as can Euro pean cities and American

their departure would be desolate ones for those of us who remain A had night for America Indeed This Is the day when Americans look to their water power their t soils Boundless In resources Americans have been prodigal in the use often in the waste of them But now all Is changed What we have we have decided to take earn I of What we have not but may have by proper handling we are training

by a good manyipeople That commodity Is i can national character Where did I America get it It is unlike the l character of any other nation For tunately these foreign born peoples who might go away between some I sundown and sunrise can not take with them the contribution they have made to American character Wo are lucky to that extent These millions more who enter at New York and other ocean harbors are bringing more characteristics to dump into Americathe most re markable melting pot the world ever knew Those who know say we got our hustle in politics from the Irish The English have politics but it fIs not the American kind Our kind Is the Irish kind the land on top quality Cramped In a small fertile island Irishmen had need for larger quarters and they found them here Irishmen

have influenced almost the whole world even Ireland and Eng land themselves Politics was by no means all of the contribution to our national1 traits made by the Irish any more than the Christmas tree

death of Cardinal Ram polla there has been talk In Rome of the possibility of an American for Pope Last week one of the oldest English journalists In Rome an Intimate friend of the late Cardinal gave out the details of an unpublished Interview In which Cardinal lampolla talked freely concerning Catholicism In America and the likelihood of an American Pope In which he says I saw Cardinal lampolla at the end of October He was then quite enthusiastic over the future of the church We talked at great length about the American situation and he was very enthusl astic about Cardinal OConnell He said to me If tho time comes to have an American Pope which perhaps may not be long I see nobod In the American hierarchy who can take that position except Cardinal OConnell He Is a strong man and a gdod Catholic I mean by a good Catholic that ho is good to all Cath lollcs whether of the socalled Ro man Catholic church or otherwise He Is most popular at the Vatican Rampolla went on to say that fodr

in Peace Everything Points to a Peaceful Passage Bill Without Bloodshed GOVERNMENT LINES ARE FIRM This past week the Hon T P OConnor M P in an encouraging cablegram to the American press asserts that as regards the battle for homo rule for Ireland nothing decisive will be known until Janu ary There Is he says a certain division of opinion among home rulers as to the period at which tho Government should allow any decisive point to be reached One sec tion believes that time is fighting so much on the side of home rule that stowInperiod when the passage of the home rule bill into law is seen by Orangementothat being then compelled to make choice between accepting Minis lariat terms or rebellion they will be much less arrogant than they are todayAnother school of liberal thought Insists that If nothing be dbne before thd meeting of the House of Commons in February party passion will be greatly inflamed and the Orangemen may resort to such violent proceedings In Parliament as make It difficult for them to re turn to reason later on I do not attach any Importance to throe fears which I think unreal but this form pressure from their own most staunch supporters may Influence the Ministry to hurry up negotiations instead of allowing them to take tho normal and slow course I take it as now inevitable that some thing must be given the Orangemen save their faces and enable them abandon their present wild policy byt hIf Is d1fficult to say w tulle concess naliouil objectionable and Impracticable sug estion and the one wh ch Irish Nationalists especially abominate a namely the exclusion of Ulster from the Irish Parliament I believe maybe regarded as dead nnd burled An agreement that is more possible Is the withdrawal Of Irish con trol of the Postofflce and perhaps of the customs as Inconsistent with the future scheme of federation and home rule all round There may also bo a modification with regard to the appointment of the high court Judges by the Irlsh Government that being retained in the hands oC the Imperial Government fora cer tain number of years Home rule within home rule once more Is advocated by Sir Edward Irey It presents many difficulties and must be carefully thought out before agreed to but It Is certainly less objectionable In the opinion of most Irish Nationalists than exclusion It Is probable that Sir Ed ward Carson will hold out against any proposal except the perpetual exclusion of Ulster and the Irish Nationalists would rather destroy the bill and destroy the Government than submit to any such arrange ment But Carson Is known to be y anxious for a settlement and it is thought he may adopt officially an Irreconcilable position This would not prevent a settlement of tho Ulster question on more moderate lines than he wants It is pretty certain that the whole force of the English Tory party will be given to andyCarson deserted by the English Tories becomes Impotent Another scheme thrown out Is the temporary veto by Ulster members in the Irish Parliament of spy legislation ap pllcable to Ulster All of these proposals are Inspired by a desire to prove to Orangemen that they will be safeguarded fromiall possible and Impossible i slop by an Irish Parliament They are unnecessary of course but theyfwill answer a double purpose First they willl relieve any anxieties whirs are genuine and will bo accepted or If they be rejected they will prove to the English world the utter un reasonableness of the Orangemen and that will get for the Government the full support of English opinion In taking any stops necessary to preserve law and order In Belfast Thus everything today points to a comparatively peaceful passage ot home rule to the statute book next year Settlement Is in the air and all racial instincts of Englishmen as well as hatred even ot the possibility of bloodshed make the result In evitable Premier Asquith and John Redmond both can oat their Christ mas dinners In peace and comfort RECOVERED The

Industries that depend for their prosperity upon an easy con dltlon of the money market The consequence Is an unusually larg number of unemployed In Industrial centers There Is no Indication of financial panic such as prevailed during the closing months of 1907 But there will undoubtedly take place a gradual readjustment flnac clally We have been living too fast says one of our

RESTRICTING IMMIGRATION The question of Imposing heavy restrictions upon Immigration to this country Is not new It goes back beyond the middle of the last cen tury when the Know Nothings of that day clamored for America for the Americans It has come up al various times since then and certain restrictions have already been adopt ed There is still some of the old Know Nothing spirit lending Its support to the bills introduced Into Congress for the limitation of Immi gration But that is not the only spirit behind these measures Labor organizations are lending their support to restrictive measures as a means for protecting the labor mar ket in this country Indeed the main support for Immigration restriction bills now comes from this source One of the acts for which President Taft was most severely criticised was his veto of the Bur nettDllIlngham bill which set up a literacy test for immigrants The same measure has been introduced in Congress again and there is little doubt that it will pass both houses as 1C did before President Wilson if We may Judge from his writings before he became Presi dent favors exclusion of certain classes of immigrants Whether he favors literacy test is another ques tion He will very likely have an opportunity of passing upon it soon With the True Voice we believe that certain restrictions upon immi gratlon are unobjectionable nay even necessary Only those are de sirable as immigrants who Intend to make a permanent home hero and to become a part of the nation Criminals Idlers and Incurably dis eased should be rigidly excluded The

Wilson is a good Presbyterian like the True Voice we had though he would be immune from attacl in that quarter Some narrow minded Catholics were even Inclined to question his fairmindedness iIn the selection of his Cabinet Be tween the two extremes ho seems to be doing fairly well There is in Ireland only one priest to every 1600 Catholics There is a clerygman of the Protest ant Episcopal church to every 341 members of his creed one to ever 600 Presbyterians and one to ever 290 Methodists And this is the country the Orangemen say is priest ridden There Is not in existence any where a Catholic

gratitude HU latest splendid 600page volume Irish Minstrels and Musicians Is no dry treatise on musicIt makes the reader acquainted with the harpers pipers fiddlers and flute players who have made Irish life happier with their art for centuries Their story is told In an attractive way and the readers Interest IB quickened by little bits of history and humorouasallles which are in troduced here and there in the work Capt ONeill is jio novice In authorshiphe has written other works on Irish music and has com piled several Irish musical collec tions His latest work Is inscribed as follows Dedicated to the venerated memory of my parents whose tuneful tastes and memorized mole dies are cherished as a most precious heritage The book Is worthy of a place In the home of every Irish person

armies which might yield better results if applied to better ends In the fiscal year of 191112 the United States spent more than 244000000 for maintaining its army and navy This represents a charge of 263per unit of Its population The cost of the naval and military force constituted nearly 271 per cent of the total expenditures of the country Each man in the army of the United States costs the Government 1314 per year What this enormous outlay for a hypothetical war means to the taxpayer is obvious There Is no reason for surprise at the high cost 3f living In this country when we learn that during the year 191112 this country with less than 14 percent as many men in its army as France spent 60 per cent as much noney on it with less than 13 percent as many as Germany it spent almost 64 per cent as much The army cost us last year an average oC nore than 1300 for each man in It as against less than 400 paid by my nation in Europe AGREED ON DEBATE The Triangular Debating League omposed

practically confined to Christian countries and in some of these has only a religious observance The same is true of Easter Other holidays are for the most part national in character and are confined to their own countries But New YearsII in some form is celebrated lands and in not a few is the chief I holiday of the year It is not ob served always on January 1 the Chinese and Jewish New Years be ing notable exceptions and the Rus sian festival being held on what to us is January 12 owing to a differ ence in the calendar Especially is the beginning of the year a time of festival in the Orient Nobody knows Just how old the cus tom is but it probably antedates history In most Asiatic countries New Years eve is a time for settling debts wiping the slate clean for the succeeding twelvemonth Tea drink Ing is naturally one of the chief forms of observance in China and Japan There it is an art and the ceremonial on New Years Is Intend ed to outrank anything else In the pink tea line The Japanese tea room is hidden away In some secluded part of the garden and only a few of the elect are admitted This of course refers to the private tea rooms the public ones being frequented by Mr Common People and all his wifes relations The Japs eat from a large variety of dishes on this day piously offering samples of the foods to their gods The daylin Nippon is celebrated on January 1 as with us The Chinese New Year which is based on the moon and occurs in January or February is like a pro longed and glorified Fourth of July or rather as the Fourth was before it became safe and sanee It lasts for several days and is full of color noise and action from start to fin ish Firecrackers Chinese lanterns tea feasting and carnival all play their part and the new year is Initiated in a way to put ginger Into his young life The popular greet ing is Kunghl which is to say I humbly wish you Joy ot Sinhl May Joy be yours From this it will be seen that the Chinese have a hi old time Not only do lanterns abound but artificial flow ers and red mottoes ornament the houses Even in the United States the laundries are abandoned while the Celestials paV ceremonial calls and decorate everything In sight with red paper Europeans also paint the town red on New Years only they do it in a different way New Years is a great day for the children in the country towns of Russia The boys carry peas and wheat showering those they like with wheat and those they dislike with peas Various domestic an imals are gayly decordted and led about the streets There Is also a ceremony of changing water into wine which is harmless enough since it does increase the wine supplyThe great feature of the German New Years is Sylvester Abend corresponding in some measure to our watch parties except that more

Persecution In England and 1Ireland What the FIrst Catholic Bishop Wrote on This Subject- in 1797 SLANDER REFUTED MANY TIMES Despite tho friendly feeling ex isting between the different relig ious bodies in this country and the conviction that the Catholics are doing the best work for the uplift of humanity It seems to be necessary to repeat every few years the answer to the old charge that Catholics have a divided allegiance and that they are subject in civil matters to a foreign power the Pope of Rome This charge goes back to the days of persecution in England and Ire land The answer to it also dates back to the same epoch It is simple and direct In 1855 Archbishop M J Spalding then of Baltimore wrdte this memorable statement But are not Catholics the sub jects of a foreign prince the Pope This slander like almost everything else said against ushas been re futed so many thousand times al ready that wo are almost afraid to tiro the patience or insult the under standing of our readers by answer ing it again No man of comnion Intelligence or information need be told at this late day that the obedience we owe to the Pope is confined entirely to religion and spiritual things and that he neither jurisdiction affecting our civil alleginice This question has been so long settled throughout the civilized world that Its revival at present appears to be wholly useless if not utterly absurd When it was a question more than sixty years ago of removing some of the penal laws under which the Catholics of England had been so long suffering this very question in regard to the nature and extent of Papal jurisdiction was discussed and it was then settled to the entire satisfaction of Mr Pitt and of the whole British Parliament which ac cordingly passed the Catholic relief
