enmity was that in the convent'

shown aowhere more strikingly t-an I
in the manner in which he respected
and safeguarded the religious beliefs
of the students. We Catholic boys
remember how insistent he was on
our attending mass every Sunday.
He not only gave us every facility
for performing our duty In that
regard, but provided a system by
which we could not well escape it if
we desired. He handled it thus: A
list of the names of all Catholic
students was supplied to a person
who stood at the church door and
checked the names as the students
entered. This list was returned the
next day to the university, and if P
appeared therefrom that any Btudent
had remained away from mass ht
was sent for at once and a reason
demanded." But the whole thing was
done In such a gentle and kindly way
that the delinquent young man never
cared about repeating the offense.
Mr. Wilson's broad toleration of the
religious views of his students was
not of course confined to those of
the Catholic communion. It extended
to adherents of every denomination
represented in the university. Yes,
you bet I am for Woodrow Wilson."
The situation here and out in the
State is most gratifying to the1
Democrats, Chairman Johnson Cam
den, of the State Campaign Commit
tee, going on record aa expecting
100,000 majority, while Frank Mc-
Grath, Chairman of the local com

situation, as the organization in
Louisville is the most compact In its
history, which in Itself is a tribute
to Mr. McGrath's ability as an or

in
WHAT THE CHURCH HAS DONE
Rev. P. Duffy, D. D presents In
the last number of the Catholic
World the following beautiful and
true tribute to the Catholic church,
apropos of the ridiculous resolutions
passed at the recent Methodist con
vention:
The Catholic church Is no new'
omer in America. It was here cen
turies before John Wesley, that great
and justiy honored man, was born,
and before Methodism was ever
'dreamed of. This America, as all
and before Methoi
men know, was discovered by Cath
olics before Protestantism in any
form was Invented. The larger part
of it was first explored and settled
h. r.ihnii,..
In the Colonial period
0f this country, two of the first
charters of religious liberty were.ters came from France in 1840 to
granted by the Catholic governors,
Lord Baltimore, in Maryland, and
Governor Dongan, in New York.
American Catholics performed an
honorable part in the War ol Inde
pendence, and the republic could not
have been victorious without the aid
of two foreign Catholic powers. Our
church in this country has always
been a patriotic church' and a demo
cratic church. It was for a long
time weak In numbers, but not for
an instant weak in its love for Amer
ica. During the course of years it
received accession from King-ruled
lands, and it has made these new
comers the most intense and loyal
devotees to American Ideals of
llbert. ' )
The Catholic Vhurch is in the
limelight now. hjhe is not shrinking
from inspection, I Students of social
factors, statesmen, Jurists, profes
sors, publicists, have been observing
us for anTva ' fi n' If a brief
uar"'ePS" iiiTvra rUf - thTH
opinions that have been expressed, it
would run somewhat as follows: "In
the Catholic church the United States
possesses a powerful organism which
receives foreigners, offering them
the one great institution of enlight
enment and betterment, which is not
alien to them when they land on our
shores, thus holding them to their
moral practices, while instilling into
them our political ideals."
This organization is, first of all, a
religious one. it preaches Christ, it
does not use its pulpit to advocate
political measures, nor to stir up
sectarian strUe. It makes heroic
sacrifices for the religious education
of its children, the future citizens of
the nation. It is incessant In its
labors for the relief of all forms of
human misery, and has the power of
calling forth in its members, espe
cially its Sisterhood, a divine
altruism which makes one proud that
human nature can reach such
heights. The church sets Itself in
opposition only to those who
threaten the foundation of religion,
the family, the State. It has stood
almost alone in the fight for the
preservation of the American home.
It Is looked upon by our most
penetrating thinkers as the strongest
force at work for the maintenance
of our political and economio prin
ciples. It deals with reforms with
prudence, temperance and breadth of
view which comes from nineteen
centuries of experience with all
classes of men. Even If one apply
the test of business success, one finds
activity, enterprise, ability to meet
new conditions, equal to the best
America has to show. Its business
Integrity, too, is at the highest.
Crises come and go; scandals arise
In the world of finance; reputations
suffer; but the old church retains a
financial credit and a reputation for
Just dealing which the world can not
gainsay.

Mother Theodore's canonization .was

a slow process and final action will

Mother Theodore was Mile. Guerln,
daughter of an officer under

of Vlncennes, Ind., sent a commis
sioner to France to get some of the
Sisters to found a teaching com

covered most of the old Northwest
Territory. Mother Theodore and
five Sisters came, sailing from Havre
to New Orleans, then up the Missis

had been liberally educated in the

HOME RULE BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Reviewing the growing appre
hension of a European war that can
not be localized and may bring
Austria and Russia into the field
and perhaps others, T. P. O'Connor
thus views the home rule struggle
as it stands at present:
Tn the meantime at home our own
fierce political struggle gains passion
with every hour. There, also it la a
war without quarter on one side or
the other. The Government Is . de
termined to use the closure and
every other recourse to pass the

every Liberal when he declared that
home rule will be carried by the
Commons before Christmas and Into
a law during the lifetime of the
present Parliament.
A further sign of the present tem
per of the Liberal party is that the
attendance is splendid, for from the
minute that the House rises to the
minute it separates nearly every

his accession to office and marks his
view of the seriousness of the situa

constant attendance In the House of

Lloyd-George has been preparing for
months, and alRo by calling off every

The Labor members still are com

ardor with the Liberals and Irish to
attend every sitting and support the
Government on every division. The
debate on the closure resolution

Herbert Samuel, the Postmaste
