He won distinction by his unremitting Ught to upbuild the church in tho Northwest and as an unllinchin?t advocate of prohibition. In 1311, when it was expected he would be made a cardinal, there was mu?:h indignation expressed by Catho lic in his own archdloceee anil those in the Northwest, when it was le-smed that i.e had been passed over by the Pope. A virtual promise was said to hav? beam made by Pope Leo XI? sBhortly before 1902 that Archbishop Iceland snould re?oive the red hat Ireland had been the author of th? negotiations between the Holy 8ee and the United States regarding the Phil ippines and was insti nental in hav ing- Wm.

British Admiralty. -t*T ' London, Sept. ?5.?British snip pins; losses due to the U-boat war fare during; the month of August were smaller than those of any month since September, 1916. the Admiralty announced tonight. The figures of British and neutral shipping losses during August are:1 British. ITS. 101 tons. Neutral?. 151.SJS tons. Total, 327.67*'tons. During th? month of August ves sels aggregating 8.1'?.Kr! 5 tons sailed from British ports. glum, to dine with King Leopold. Efforts of Mr. and Mrs. Storer to ad vance Ireland's Interests a'so pro voked criticism. A letter from the Pope on Ameri canism was made the ground for a sharp difference of opinion between Ireland and Archbishop Corrigan re specting its Interpretation. A Cath olic newspaper, printed in England about the same time published a let ter from its Rome correspondent which called Archbishop Ireland an apostate and asserted his views "would bring him ln league with Hebrews and Freemasons." Ire land's reply was that the attack had been made by Jesuits. Ireland strongly championed re ligious freedom in America. He was democratic to a degree. Visiting royalty and dignitaries in England. France. Ireland. Belgium and Italy In 190*. he represented himself as "?imply an American prelate." Am?ricanisai ?in? Friends. His strong outspoken Americanism won to him th? friendship of manv who differed from some of his ex pressed radical views. He staunchly advocated military training and pre paredness before America entered "fho war. ? He made frequent attacks upon the. fellaclea of socialism and did not hesitate to defend capital when occa sion arose. He said at a dinner In St. Paul: "The church Is no enemy of wealth. Wealth well uaed i? a gift of the Almighty." The establishment, enlargement and the strengthening of the scope ot parochial schools occupied much of hi? attention. He defended his course in thi? in the following worais: "Th? evil in America Is the decay cf religion, and. In logicai sequence,, the decay of morals. In both cases' the cause of the decay Is the enforced secularism of ?tate sects. The issue of Americanism and Catholicism Is with u? always and is needless. Its solu tion is ?ood citizenship, wli!;l> Is the hope of America's safety." Archbishop Ireland displayed ardent patriotism during the present war. In thi? he consistently followed the stand he had taken tn opposing ihe Faribault plan. Tbe plan resulted in a petition to the Vatican to estab lish German parishes In ine L'nlted States, with parochial schools to which should be Issued otdei-s that the German language be taught. Combatting this in iiome th? Arch bishop maintained that "Catholics in Arnvrlca are Americans. Our coun try is not Poland to be partitioned at the good pleasure of foreigners." Archbishop Ireland made ?tauch fi lends amon?' the .clergy of Washing ton, and always kept in close touch with those priests in whom he was ] particularly interested. Among the pastors of this city the archbishop al ways maintained an especially warm friendship for the late Rev. Dr. D. J. Stafford, of St. Patrick's Church, and the Rev. Eugene A. Hannan, now rec tor of St Martin's Church. On the occasion of his many visits to the ("apit. I the distinguished prelate in variably visited Father Stafford and Father Hannan to encourage their local activities, and It Is said that he wept when the news of Father Staf ford's death reached him.

The alarming spread of the world epidemic so quickly in the United States and the overcrowd ing of hospitals in epidemic cen t ers.brought about a hasty meet ing today of the medical chiefs of the army, navy. Red Cross and United States Public Health Serv ice to discuss means of aiding the civilian medical authorities.

Prevention he outlined as likely only by avoiding crowds and crowded places where contact with o thcrs spreads the disease, by sneezing and coughing; by keeping oneself clean In clothing and person, especially of th? nose and mouth. The germ la car ried to others from the nose and mouth and the only probable means by which the germs enter the system is by the nose or mouth. The newest means of combatting the spread of the disease is announced by the Washington chapter of the Red Cross in the form of a germ mask The device Is a modified form or the gas mask, it is mad? of four layers of thin clean gauie, arranged so as to cover the mouth and nose of the wearer and designed to act as a filter asain?t germs.

While no comment was forthcom ing from the State Depcrtment. ap parently in view of the fact that the entire ?ubject will be handled by tbe Tr?pident, there woe little attempt to conceal the disgust fett at the chancellor's whine for peace. There is no doubt now, in the minds of persons at the Capital, that Germany and Austria are act ing In concert on peace. Weal* Stifle Pear. One attempt has been to stifle It by fear; another has been to draw the allies into a conference. Per haps the foremost feature of the peace maneuvers, and one which is particularly pleasing to officials he re. is the apparently In spi red campaign against President Wilson ?nnd the American people in the German pre.??, which has told about the "war fury raging here." Thia point waa alao touched upon In the chancellor's speech. The err my press his likewise been typifying the United States of late as the "mort bloodthirsty" of opponents. The German chancellor, in addition to the four principle? outlined by I resident Wilson, comments on the fourteen clauses which th? President has laid d"wn as a basta of peace. fend declares his willingness to accept these. Discusi?n Timms l??-?ulbl*.
