Father Vaughan Lashes Idle
Women of Society in New
Special Cable to The Journal.
London, Nov. 24.The Et.-Rev.
Vaughan has renewed his attack on the
smart set, this time in a book which he
has published. Father Vaughan says:
"It is my deliberate belief, and I am
fully persuaded t" it-my sermons under
state what is going on today.'among
some members, not only of the upper
classes, but the middle classes, among
working people also."
The preacher is no sour hater of joy.
I do not think," he says, "England
owns the son who believes more in the
healthy influence of cheery, bright and
merry social life than I do."
For the idle smart woman he has the
lashes of scorpions. He says: "Fool
ish man will think aloud but silly
woman feels aloud. Conversations that
are carried on between sexes and among
women with each ^other are nothing less
th an shocking. It .all goes'to prove that
in reading as in everything else these
persons exercise no restraint whatso
ever. I might be a blessing if some
of these gambling harpies could be
given what are called 'woman's rights,'
for under these conditions, I presume,
they, would drop woman's privileges and
then man might .have a ehance of seeing
that they played the game.'
It's WJiat They Take Off."
"It is not what women put on, but
what they take off that matters. There
*re not a few houses from which some
society ladies are permanently excluded
because of their want of decent cloth
ing. Did we knew less of the motives
for. these outrageous breaches of deco
rum we might charitably suppose these
unwomanly women were recent importa
tions from the-Fiji islands."
A description of- how young girls are
lured on to play bridge and sell .their
souls to pay their debts, is repeated,
and in the appendix Father Vaughan
declares he has received letters from
young ladies assuring.him he.has under
stated the "hideous state of things."
He continues: "Loveless, childless
marriage is sapping the nation. Is it
not appalling to think that the very
last tning for newly married people to
want is mutual love. Nay, they ridi
cule belief in any such old-world relic.
It's bad form' and that is the *nd of

Ridicule Big Families..
"The present 'up-to-date' parents
ridicule the notion of having big fami
lies so that instead of being proud, so
ciety is becoming ashamed of owning
to a nursery full of children^ Most of
the present day evils far and away
come from unhappy marriages, and un
happy marriages come from want of
mutual reverence and love."
Father Vaughan's denunciations are
interspersed with common sense re
'.'I advocate.elegance, in'dress," he
writes, '^but not extravagance." I
another place' writing on*-gambling he
admits: "It is not playing for money
that is essentially wrong. But the
evil of gambling is to be found in lia
bility to abuse. Therefore the best
way to deal with the gambling instinct,
is .to leave it severely alone.'
Further on. f-Vaughan says:' "Herd-^

The Petit Parisian says it is believed

In thejrearly '90 's he was known as
a rider and driver of some of the finest
horses in America, and his stables*, at
Morristown, covering over twenty
acres were renowned all over the sport

existence. He was especially addicted
to the fashion then in its first popular

At the same time he was a great ex

bought in Canada in 1888, was for sev

at exhibitions thruout the country.
Mr. Higgins in the sport early took
the form of strong inclination for the

was nothing in America to compare
with the magnificence of his manner of

probably the most luxurious unmarried
man in America."
The report of his intended marriage
revives an interesting rumor afloat in
the 90's that he would never marry,
because of an unfortunate romance in
his thirty-fifth year that .brought on
hin. a grave melancholia. There was
never a great foundation for the ru
mor, altho the names of several society
women were mentioned at the time, but
it is a fact that Mr. Higgins is not a
man who smiles over much.
AUSTRALIA WILL BULL
GflOT BRITAIN'S YOKE
Member of Island's Parliament
Predicts Demand for Inde-
Special to The Journal.
Ottawa, Ont., Nov. yL.That Aus
tralia, will,in the near future, declare
for political independence, is, accord
ing to G. W. Inglis, who passed thru
here on his way to Europe, the opinion
prevalent in that country just now.
Mr. Inglis is a member of the Aus
tralian parliament, a prominent export
er of Melbourne, and in touch with
public sentiment thruout the common
wealth. He states that the ties are
weakening between Australia and the
mother country. Organized labor,
which controls the political situation
inr Australia, while neither disloyal,
nor yet loyal, has no sympathy with
imperial. connection. The federation
scheme itself is not regarded by the
people as having proved anything of a
success so far.
There is a feeling abroad in the
country that it is overgoverned that
the system of government is too cost
ly, and that the administrative chain
is greatly strained by over-lapping au
thority and is liable to break at any
moment. No actual rupture, it is
thought, will take place so long as the
country is enjoying the measure of
prosperity with which it is at present
favored, but it is claimed that when
the pinch of depression is again felt,
as it will be with the return of unfav
orable seasons and the blighting of pe
riodical drought, there will be merci
less cutting down as the result, and
something will give way.
