NONE SO BLIND.
It has been explained time and
again that Catholics ' - owe no
allegiance to the Pope as a temporal
power, yet the Western Recorder, a
local Baptist paper with A. P. A.
tendencies, says in its latest issue
referring to tho Knights of Colum
bus: "It will bo admitted that tho
members of tho Knights of Columbus
do owo allegiance to at least one
potentate,' and this potentate is the
Pope at Rome. Since no one of them
wll deny this fact"
In their expose of the fake K. of
C. oath tho California Masons
Btated that the Knights of Columbus
ritual and oath instills a lovo for
country, a reverence for law and or
der and upholds tho constitution of
our country, this being quoted in
tho Congressional Record of January
29 this year. Yet the narrow
minded bigot who writes tho above
Btill says that none of them will deny
that they owo temporal allegiance to
the Pope. Verily thero are none so
blind as those who will not see.
THAT DELAYED NOTE.
a group of children denominated
Catholic would go its way to Its re
ligions school, another group called
Protestant, and still another group
named Jewish, would go each its own
particular way to its own denomina
tional school. Can you not see the
unfortunate result that would ensue
from this process of segregation
according to crcdal beliefs? I am
opposed because I see-In it a vehicle
that might bo utilized for purposes
of proselytlsm. Let religion be
taught where it rightly belongs, at
the domestic altar, in tho church and
synagogue, in the denominational
school, but let our public schools be
and forover'remaln free and untram
meled to tho utmost degree, the
bulwark of our liberty, tho fashioner
and the inspirer ot civic and national

Both press and people applaud tho
note and sing praise for Secretary
Lansing and his stand. "Though
England has not destroyed American
life, she has destroyed a great part
of American trade to the advantage
of her own commerce," is a passage
found in not a few of tho editorials.
Hero aro comments that show the
"Tho British authorities may have
supposed they were pulling the wool
over somebody's eyes, and vainly
imagined they were deceiving others;

"It has come at last, a strong,
definite, uncompromising note from
tho United States on Great Britain's
illegal interference with American
trade. It is to bo hoped that tho
Washington administration intends
to back it up, to the point of refus
ing to let Great Britain buy war
munitions In this country any longer
If these practices persist."
"Secretary Lansing's note to Great
Britain protesting against further
Interference with the trade of this
and other neutral countries is a plain
and straightforward statement of a
series of truths which Bhould have
been accentuated when the first lm-y-proper
seizure of a neutral ship was
made. The administration has
Blumbered just ono year too long on
this important issue."
Tho United States has stated its
case and should stand firmly for
every word thereinv England must
be made to understand that our
patience has reached tho end.
There is no greater need of charity
than in tho Jives of the working
girls of our great cities. We do not
mean a charity that gives a few
dimes or dollars or maybe a gen
erous check, but we do mean the
charity of love, companionship and
an equality that does hot see the
faded clothes and worn gloves, but
reaches far into the tired heart and
neglected life of the general working
girl. Jn one large city two Irish
girls came, eager to work and eager
for what they imagined must be the
larger life. They attended to their
religious duties carefully. They
knew ithe priest enough to have a
little talk now and then, but they
did not wear their hearts on their
sleeves, so tho world knew nothing
of their social hunger. "We have
been here fifteen years and, outside
of business, we do not know three
people," complained one. 'ILlfe
would mean so much to us if we
could visit some one for a little
friendly talk." Our socioties seem
to fail in reaching some of these
kind of girls, although 'they are real
and in real need of just tho right
kind of sympathy.
Tho American Truth Society, now

CHURCH AND MASONRY.
The Catholic church wars against
Masonry to this extent, that she
forbids her members to be Masons,
for tho very obvious reason that
Masonry is a religion and Is so con
sidered by Masonic writers. The
Catholic church believes that the
Catholic church is the pillar and
ground of truth. She stands there
fore, says Truth, in opposition to all
doctrines which are opposed to her
own teachings. Thus for exaniplo
she is in opposition to Protestantism,
to Mohammedanism or any other ism
that fs In fundamental opposition to
her. Tho Democratic party is in op
position to the Republican party,
and both are in opposition to tho
Progressive party. All of them,
however, manage to live together as
citizens without breaking one an
other's heads. No ono seriously
thinks that a Catholic can bo a
member of tho Methodist church at
the same time that he is a member
of the Catholic church. Funda
mentally our quarrel with Masons in
this country Is the same, and fair
minded Masons recognizo that fact.
Wo oppose Latin Masonry for the
same reason that American Masons
refuse to recognize it because it is
a propagator of revolution and
November 22 will be Ithe fifty
fourth anniversary of tho death of
tho famous French priest, iPero
Lacordaire. This wonderful priest,
perhaps the most eloquent pulpit
orator that France has produced
during tho past century, is grate
fully remembered by Irishmen for
his famous funeral oration on
O'Connell. He was born in 1802,
the son of a humble country phy
sician, and was educated for the
bar. His father had served under
Rochambeau in the war for Ameri
can independence. When tho young
man was pursuing his studies and
mingling with the social circles of
the day, at a time when Infidel
teachings were being widely dissem
inated, he became affected by the
contagion and was noted for his
anti-Catholic utterances as much as
for tho eloquence with which he ex
pressed" them. Suddenly he aston
ished all his acquaintances by con
fessing to an entire change of feel
ing and sentiment shortly after his
coming of age, and ho announced
his intension of studying for the
priesthood, giving up all pleasures
and allurements of the world for the
toil and sacrifice of the ecclesiastical
state. He often said in after lifo
that neither man nor book was the
Instrument of his conversion, but
that a sudden and secret stroke of
grace opened his eyes to the noth
ingness of irrcligion.
