GROWTH OF OUR CHURCHES
That the rhurch members In the
United States numbered nearly thlr-ty-tbtcu
millions In 1900; that, thero

n linger percentage of Catholic males
than Protestant males wero members;
that In 1G states the majority of tho
total ihuich membership wero Ho
ninn Catholic; but that of the grand
rtolnl ot church members reported
for lliu United States Gl.G per cent
were Protestants and 3C.7 per cent
Itomnn Catholics; these arc the sali
ent and conspicuous facts appearing
In the proof sheets of n United
Slates Scnsus Ilureau bulletin, pre

Ot tho total estimated population

tho church members formed 39.1 per

M'CLURE AND DOWNFALL
A few j ears ago n number of the
"boys" writing for tho McCluro Phil
lips' magazine decided that tho old
man was "crazy" and really didn't
know how to own n magazine. Con
sequently such well known men as
Stcrfens, Dunne, and linker and Miss
Tarboll associated themselves with
Mr, Phillips and bougt up the Ame
rican magazine, thus leaving old man
"McCltire" to hfs "presumably un-
Tho result was that "old man Me
Cluro" proved less "crazy" than his
'former associates had opened. His
magazine made bigger hits than
ever, got more exclusive stuff, and
tho crowd with the American ma
gazine who were to show him how
It. is done have had to buckle to It
In the liveliest stylo that they may
keep alive and within hailing dis
tance of their former publisher.
This hit of mngazlno history In
dicates that S. S. McCluro Is nn ex
traordinary man and it Is recalled
on account of personal views o x
pressed by him recently regarding
tho United States nnd tho Hrlllsh
Empire. Mr. McCluro whilo address
ing & Cluitauqua assembly last month
hands of Germany and ready, mere'
fly for tho asking to accept the do
minance of the United States' nnd
eo the empire's real seat of author
ity transferred to Washington.
Thut sounds about ns "crazy" as
they make 'cm at Chntiiuqua. Hut
It n rouses Interest In how McCluro
figures It out.
When orators In tho natlonnl con
vention of revolutionary France de
clared that Drltish power had been
destroyed, Mlrabeau asked where,
when and In whnt latitude. Kitty
years late Lcdru Rollin, who be
came vice. president of ono ot the
French republics, wrote a book on
"Tho Decline of KnglanaV' Since
then England has not declined any
territory, increasing her possessions
In bath Asia and Africa.
Mr. McClure called tho parting or
tho United States from England in
177G a disastrous mistake, and read
a statcmont from Lord Roscbery in
which that statesman predicts that if
England and her American colonies
had not separated at the time ot tho
revolution the seat of government of
the Drltish empire would already
have been transferred from tho Drl
tish Isles to what is now the United
Stntes, and those islands would sim
ply have been the sacred historic
shrine of tho great world empire ot
the English speaking people.
"When tho business man makes n
mistake," Mr, McCluro continued,

empire, which this means,

"Now If I had full control, my
Idea would be to open :lands on each
Island nnd to Import say about n
thousand, farmers to each Island nnd
place them on these lauds. Tncso
farmers and their families could be
furnished houses and othcr necessi
ties at government expanse, with tho
understanding that they pay rental
on tho lands nnd the Improvements
furnished them for n cerult' iiiimlier
of. years, and then, nfter they had
secured title, they must not dlsposo
of tho land for a certain period ot
years, for Instance, about ton years.
Now, the Idea ot tho governments
building houses Is not so radical ns
it first 'tmlght seem. V1 hnvo built
something like thirty-two hundred
houses In tho Panama Canal Zone
for tho purpose ot having tho Ame
rican workers bring tliolr families

not give anyone these things ns a

better Investment could not bo made.

tion that when these farmers had
produced tholr crops they would bo
