"'ln spite of all our efforts." she said, "more
children are bei!:g exploited to-day than ten

Plant Guild Thinks of Undertaking Work
as Object Lesson.
"Tf enough money comes in, why don't we
take a street and try to make a mode] block -•""
The suggestion «v maJe by Mrs. John Wood
Stewart, of Glen Ridge, N. J , president of the
New- York branch of the National Plant, Flower
and Fruit Guild, at a meeting of the guild held
yesterday at the home of Mrs. James Speyer.

Just been telling the women how the balconies
of Berlin, with their window boxes, made the
etrwets look like scenes on the stage, they are
co beautiful.
"In New-York you see plenty of skeleton bal
conies," said Mr. Moffett. "but they are really
Ore escapes. I wonder if they could not be ar
ranged to accommodate a few trailing vines, and
bo on. without infringing the rules of the Fire
Department? With all the model tenements
that are going up I should think the architects
could allow for spaces for window boxes."
Any start the guild makes in the direction of
a model block will probably be begun some
where near the People's Home Church and Set
tlement. No. MM to 547 East llth-si the pas

dow box work, as instituted last year, with spe

be neglected. Then 205 boxes were storked and
given away. This summer it is hoped to dis
tribute from one thousand to three thousand
boxes, stocked with popular, hardy plants.
During the last year the N>w-Tork branch dis
tributed 151,622 bunches of flowers in tenement
houses, etc. 13,250 bunches in hospitals, settle

Mrs 8.. of sth-av«\. has sent $10 for the Ohio
invalid. The amount received so far Is $17. !V0.
It requires only $25 to place this helpless wo:r.aii
in a home for life. "A well wlpher" In Manhat
tan has contributed $5 to the coal fuiid, and
Anr.le C Barley, of Maine, $1 for expressage.
The United Branch, of Brooklyn. Mrs. Jose
phine Robinson, president, has contributed $35
for a. tent to be sent to the Sunshine Home for
OonßumptU-es In Florida, In loving memory of
William Floyd, of Brooklyn.
This branch Is always constant in well doing.
It not only enjoys an enviable record In Its
local Sunshine work, but Is ever mindful of the
larger needs of the T. S. S. It Is the desire of
the members of this bi^anch to have the tent
marked "United Branch, T. S. 8.," and have It
occupied by some one of limited means In whom
they may take a personal Interest— writing let
ters and "passing on," from time to time, vari
ous f.jrms of sunshine to cheer and entertain
the invalid.
Dr. Ennis writes that the great need of the
present moment is tents. Is there not some
other branch or individual member willing to
confer a similar boon on some unfortunate one
who is not able to provide a tent?
The severe weather of last week brought dis
tress to many families in whom the Tribune
Sunshine Society Is Interested, and money was
distributed to give warmth and comfort to them.
Among the recipients were bedridden Invalids
wheel chair invalids, hard working widows with
large families, and families where the fathers
were out of work.
Mrs. Crewdeon. an invalid member, at Illinois,
•writes of th* pleasure and comfort derived from
the warm knitted Jacket sent to her through the
office, and says: "I hope all the poor 'shut-ins"
have received an equally warm ray of sunshine
for these cold days. I am Interested in a young
girl of eight years whip lias been to school
but a few weeks in h< r life, as the parents have
a large family, and are too poor to provide warm
clothing so she can attend school. She Is a
lonely child, and so brieht that my heart achos
for her. I wish I could help her to good shoes.
a coat, dress, etc.. so she might go to school. I
must close with a h<*art full of thanks for kind
thought of me this bitter weather."

Priest Say B, Catholics Would be Jus
tified in Resort to Arms.
Philadelphia. Feb. 14 (Special).— "When it shall be
come necessary for the Catholics of Franca to
resist the intrusions of the French government
upon their sanctuaries, even to civil war. they will
be sustained by the Catholics, priests and laity
of the entire world."
Father Thomas Swine Sherman, president of the
Catholic Trust Society and son of General Sher
man, made this assertion in an interview regard
ing the clash between church and state in France.
Father Sherman has visited many cities and dis
cussed the situation with many of the deepest
thinkers of the Catholic faith. It was soon after
a conference with Archbishop Ryan in this city
that Father Sherman expressed his views on the
French situation. -
'"Leadinff Catholics of the United States and other
great countries feel that the time has come when
the Catholics of France must resist the French
government, unless they wish to bear the stigma
of poltroors and cowards," he said. He continued:
The action of the Government agents in attempt
ing to break Into the tabernacle* is the frenzied
performance of infidels and atheists who are aiming
to destroy Christianity. Ii is a persecution of the
meanest and lowest type, worse than any inflicted
by the pagans of Rome. It is the extremity of
tyranny and sacrilege to break open these taber
nacle*, where. Catholics believe, the body of Ororl
is contained. It la equivalent to the action of the
Jews in crucifying Christ.
The whole difficulty began with the French Rev
olution, and the aggressive men behind that Revo
lution endeavored to destroy Christianity. The
revolutionists confiscated all the estates of the
Church— the accumulation of thousands of years.
They shot down priests like dogs by the hundred.
At Lyons they stood priests in a long row and
mowed them down with a elngle cannon ball to
save ammunition. In Brittany there is a pile of
the bones of three hundred priests. Mothers show
this heap of bones to their children to illustrate
how favorable the republic is to the Catholic re
ligion. This was told me by a priest of Brittany.
The man naturally hated republics, and did not
s«*> how I could be a republican.
Napoleon Bonaparte saw the folly of all this, and
he also saw that the state must have a religion.
He endeavored to restore religion, but In 60 doing
he strove to make the Catholic religion a slave ox
the state, Instead of a power in it. What is known
as the Concordat was made. This was an agree
ment between Napoleon and the Pope, pretending
to be a fair treaty, restoring to the Church all her
essential rights. The Church was rehabilitated In
France under the Concordat, and the French were
grateful to Napoleon.
In the light of later events the Catholics of
France do not feel that the Church has had true
liberty under the Concordat. Under the terms of
this Instrument of state, the government kept to
Itself the right to name the bishops of the Church,
and, as might have been expected, the appoint
ments were not always made for the best interests
of the Church, but. instead were usually of such men
as best pleased the government. These officials
served the state, rather than the Church. This is
simply one of several abuses Introduced Into the
constitution of the Church in France.
In breaking the Concordat the French Republic
evidently claims to be owner of the churches in
some sense of the word. This contention the Cath
olic Church caii never admit. Therefore, she can
not admit the right of the government to treat the
churches and the- sacred Institutions within as if
they were Its property. The question of the own
ership of church property in France is admitted
by canonists to be involved in some obscurity. I
am fully persuaded that any degree of resistance
necessary to save the tabernacles from violence Is
Justifiable, even if the defenders are obliged to nave
recourse to extreme violence, or a civil war. Be
lieving that Christ la truly present in His holy
sacrament, we Catholics are the guardians of the
body of our Lord. It would be betraying a most
sacred trust not to be willing- to defend that holy
Presence, even at the risk of life. Of course, the
high authorities of the Church may not judge such
a course prudent in the facf» of a real persecution.
We do not know how far the French government
Is prepared to go in enforcing a law which violates
the mo sacred conviction? of the French people.
In case they send troops Into the churches, the
blessed sacrament will in all probability he moved
to more secret and private places, and there wor
shipped as in the days of the catacombs. The mere
thought of this, however, fills American Catholics
with dismay. They cannot understand how a re
public can forbid freedom of conscience and the
freedom of a public worship which necessarily goes
with such freedom of conscience in a country "where
the Catholic religion has been established time out
of mind.
Mr. Fixcher-H Story of the
Portion Settlement Agrees with His.
Ex-Justice TV. M. K. Oleott and Carl Fischer-
Hansen. W. Gould Brokaw*a brother-in-law,
were the chief witnesses yesterday In the sup
plementary proceeding brought against Sirs.
Poillon by a 6th-ave. store on a judgment of ■
$800. Two photographers also helped to give
Mrs. Poillon an exciting day.
Mr. Oleott denied that his firm fßlack. r Olcott,
Gruber & Bonynge) had robbed Mrs. Poillon of
the cr Kter part of the ?20.000 W. Gould Brokaw
was Bald to have {riven her as an antidote for
her Injured feelingrs because of his alleged
breach of promise. Mr. Oleott. at the same time,
swore that the settlement wan made tot $17,500.
confirming the testimony of Mr. Fischer- Hajisen,
who preceded him on the stand. . The photogra
phers came to grief physically at the hands of
Mrs. Poillon and her sister In City Hail Park,
•while nearly a thousand persons looked on. The
women smashed the cameras and struck the
photographers several vicious blows on the face
and neck, then pushed their way through the
crowd to a Broadway car.
Mr. Fischer- Hansen said that he got $2,500
from Mrs. Poillon's counsel, though he was
counsel for Mr. Brokaw. The money was to
cover certain debts of Mrs. Polllon ard. accord
ing to the testimony of Mr. Olcott and Mr.. .
Hansen. was mutually agreed upon when the
settlement was made. Mr. Fischer-Hansen said
that Mr. Olcott had first demanded $30,000. then I
gradually came down to $17,500.
"As a result of this settlement," he said. "Mr.
Brokaw and I don't speak. He would never
have paid five cents to settle."
ililton H. Goldsmith, counsel for the Judg
ment creditor, examined Mr. Olcott, who said
his firm got $7,500 in fee.« out of the $17,500 and
the surplus went to Mrs. Polllon and Mr. Han
sen. He exhibited a schedule of funds advanced
by the linn to Mrs. Poillon before the settle
ment, dating from May 25. 1905, to June 14. and
amounting to $2,910 M.
'•On September 27." he testified, "we gave
Charlotte Polllon a check for $2,370 42, the final
settlement. The check was sent to the Fifth
Avenue Hotel and the release signed. One of :
our clerks, a notary, took the check to the hotel.
The final receipts were never signed In our
office. Mrs. Poillon wanted me to cut the fee
in two, but I told her we had worked a year
and a half on her case and she should stand
by her contract. Our fee was $7,500."
'"Have you $375 of Mrs. Poillon's:?" he was
.V. sir. that Is not true; wo have not one
"During a year and a half Mrs. Poillon was ;
struggling very hard to get a living and ore '
helped her. She was thrown out of two posi
tions by the Brokaw Interests and I advised her
to go to another city. She went to Philadelphia. I
She and her sister lived modestly all the time j
and I never believed the traducing statements j
made against her. I never served a client with
more interest In my life."
