He Speaks of Attempts to Mlntsterpret
Reference to Father Hecker -Ireland's Posi
tion on Spanish War University
London, March 10. The Rome
correspondent of ihn Daily Ouroni
clo tfleurapbs the substance of an
interview he has bad with Arch
bishop Ireland, in whioh the lat
tor explaiiis his attitude toward
"Heckoriem" and his course da
ring the HpnniBh American war.
Thi corrpspondeutdescribes Arch
bishop Ireland sb having the
"fitern, benevolent face of an
apostle" and as "terribly in earn
est," remarking that "the follow
ing colloquy may bo takon as a
message to his friends and a rei'ly
to the misinterpretations whioh,
though unintentional, ho con
siders damaging to a great cause."
Tho Archbishop proceeded in
this wi8o: "Let me bpgin by die
connecting the new word 'Heck
orism.' I knew Father Hecker
well, and; like great minds, ho
bad views peculiar to himself.
One of those was the dinct in
spiration of the Holy Ghost.
This apparently daring doctrine
meant little mnro than that godly
help is not wanting to those dis
playing initiative. I frequently
told turn he was ambignous and
would b misunderstood, and this
Arohhiihop Irelnnd proceoded
to explain tho importance attached
to the natural virtues, and said:
"We maintain, especially regard
inir the olergy, that temperance
and truthfulues-i, for instance, are
so ueceesary that they cannot bo
supp'anltu by any purely devo
tioiml Gilelity. Ao iutemperate
priest sterilizes his mission. A
priest who stretches personal
casuistry to prevarication and
mentnl.reHorve only juatifios the
enemies of tbo church in affirma
tions which, though false, are
heard far and wide."
The archbishop then" warmly
protested against what ho de
scribed as tbo groundless charge
that he is inimical to tue religious
orders. Ho said he believes there
is no nobler ideal conceivable
than the monastic vows, but bo
objected to parochial or education
al enoroaohment of the "regular"
clergy (those identincd witu reli
gious orders or bound by monaBtio
vowhJ upon tho "secular" clergy
(those not so identified or bound).
The epipcopucy and its subhier
aroby are, hoaid, tho real found
ation of ecclesiastical work.
Referring lo the attempts tho
Jesuits had male in the United
States to prevent the establish
ment of tho Oatholio university nt
Washington, Ireland said: "They
wanted it thomselvoA, but tbo
Pope pointedly warned mo not to
allow the American bishop to bo
oaucht in their toils. My views
on this subject are identical with
the late Cardinal Manning's. To
insinuate that Americanism means
tbo transformauoo of tho religious
orders to tho melting pot is a
calumny. The Jesuits havo pro
duced countless saints and uavo
their own exalted miesiou, hut
American Catholicism requires a
priesthood deeply imbued with
natural and civil virtues."
With reference to tue war,
Archbishop Ireland said: "Bo
foro it broke out I wns pro-Bpan-isb;
but when hostilities com
menced I forgot everything ex
cept that I was an American citi
zen, anointed to lovo and to servo
Vouliff Lawjrrr'i Triumph.
A. L. 0. Atkinson, tbo young
Hawaiian born attornoy, is being
highly praised in legal circles
generally, as well as by counsel
with whom he was associated, for
his part in tbo Columbia sale case.
Ho had charge of the ovidenco
for tho purchaBor, besides giving
opinion for tho argument which
stood the judicial test.
' Cabinet Crisis Sequel. K
There Is an Interesting sequel to s
the Cabinet crisis tuld by the K
friends of W. O. Smith. It Is
stated that until he ran up against W
Mr. Damon's opposition, Mr. Dole g

Mr. Smith and his friends on mat- M
ters relating to public policy. Find- 9
Ing that the matter had reached a

could not agree to disagree, Mr. 3
Smith made known his Intention of
demanding action on his reslgna- S
tlon. Mr. Smith thereupon out-
lined a statement of his position for eS
Thjs statement Air. Smith sent to kj
Mr. Dole and Mr. Dole returned It S
The conclusion Is that Mr. Dole SJ
found himself between the devil a
and the deep blue sea, and the k
oplnloiis of Mr. Smith's friends re- y
gardlng Mr. Dole's hesitancy, lack g
of posltlveness and general shlftl- S
ness of action are expressed In quite S
positive terms. Mr. Dole continues Jj
to maintain a "dignified silence." k
