A Bitter Tirade Against the
Society of Jesus
A Canadian Legislator Makes a Dec
laration of His Faith and
His Allegiance.
I Associated Press Dispatches to tho Herald. I
Ottawa, Ont., March 20.— When
O'Brien's resolutions were called up in
the House of Commons this afternoon,
he moved . an amendment declaring
that the Jesuit Order is a secret organi
zation and is fraught with danger to
Canada. He moved his amendment
owing to the convictions of his constitu
ents and what he believed to be the sen
timents of the majority of the people of
the Dominion. He reviewed what he
termed the history of the Jesuit Order.
Far was it from him to say anything
derogatory to their functions. It was
true that the first work in the direction
of Christianizing the heathen was per
formed by Jesuits, and hundreds of
them, with a self-sacrifice which
-was admirable, had lost their
lives, but the name of Jesuit would not
be a byword and reproach in America
and Europe if the majority of the mem
bers of the order were as heroic in the
discharge of their duties. Since the time
of Elizabeth they were suppressed in
England. Their object was to overthrow
the Protestant establishment in England.
If they were not expelled they were at
the point of being expelled from scores of
other countries. Look at their fate in
France and Sicily. In 1855 the title of
Jesuits to estates was referred to the
English Attorney-General,and his report
was unfavorable to them. While other
religious bodies in Canada regained their
property, the Jesuits were left out in Mu
coid as the result of their bad historical
record. The Crown had shown them
great clemency. There is no legal, moral
or equitable claim for the res
toration of their estates, and
all contentions in that direr
ion are shallow and flimsy. O'Brien
ridiculed tbe idea of the Pope interfering
in Canadian civil matters and drew at
tention to the reference to the Pope in
the preamble of Mercier's bill. The peo
ple of Canada knew it was unconstitu
tional to let the operation of an act hinge
upon the negative or affirmative of a for
eigner. The weapons of Jesuits might
have changed since the time when they
Were bated throughout the world. A
Jesuit was an abnormal creature, without
home or family, submissive to his Su
periors. They always had men to do
their work, whether good or bad. There
had been men of great attainments in
the Order, but the time has come when
the world must know that Canada,
brooking no interference, civil or religi
ous, desired to remain British.
O'Brien then introduced a resolutian
addressed to the Governor-General, set
ting forth in substance that in the
opinion of the House the passage of tbe
act by the Legislature of Quebec entitled
'An Act Respecting the Settlement of
Jesuit Estates,' is beyond the power
of that House, because it
recognizes the usurpation of right
by foreign authority, namely, the Pope
of Rome, and because of its endowing
the Society of Jesuits, an alien, secret
and politico-religious body, the expul
sion of which from every Christian com
munity wherein it has a footing, has
been rendered necessary by its
intolerant and mischievous inter
meddling with the functions of
the civil government, and is fraught
with danger to the civil and religious
liberties of the people of Canada. The
House, therefore, prays that his Excel
lency will be graciously pleased to dis
allow said act."
Rykert declared that a majority of the
people were not in favor of disallow
ance. If Ontario web canvassed it would
support tbe action of Premier Mercier.
Speaking as an Orangeman, he was pre
pared to support the Government.
He could not join any anti-
Catholic crusade, and, knowing what
he did, would not attempt to smash
the confederation. He was not there to
champion Jesuits, but could bear trib
ute to tbe good done in Canada by Ro
man Catholics. Barron declared that
the Jesuit bill was an encroachment on
the rights of Protestants. He then
dealt with the constitutional aspect of
the case.

Rome, March 20.—A Papal Rescript

Guelph, March 20.— W. A. Harvey,
book-keeper for J. W. Licen, and at one
time an accountant for E. R. C. Clark
eon, of Toronto, was arrested this morn
ing for embezzling $-1 000 from his em
ployer. He was shortly afterwards bailed
out by Dr. Lett. During the forenoon
Harvey purchased a revolver, but what
use he was to make of tbe weapon was
not dreamed of till this afternoon, when,
for some reason, the Chief of Police vis
ited Harvey's residence. The Chief
found the house locked, bnt by
raising the window at the back of the
house be made his way inside. All
was silent as the grave. He paseed
through the kitchen and dining and sit
ting rooms, looked into the parlor, and
then went up-stairs. where tlio first ob
ject he saw was Harvey's fair-haired
daughter of 12 or IS years lying on the
floor of the front bedroom, with her
bead in a pool of blood. A bloody hole
in her head told the means by which
she had met her death. The Chief
raised the dead child's head from its
cramped position and laid it on a pillow.
He then passed through the upper ball,
and in the back bedroom found Harvey's
oldest daughter lying beside her bed,
also dead. Horrified, the Chief went
down stairs, and in a clothes room off
the kitchen he found Mrs. Harvey
stretched at full length, with a similar
bullet wound. Further search through
the house revealed nothing more, aud no
trace was found of tho author of the
dreadful triple murder. Harvey went to
the Central school at about 11 o'clock
this morning and took bis youngest
daughter home. He was seen driving
towards Shaw station and it was thought
he had taken the train for Toronto, and j
tbe authorities there were notified. A
detective found him this evening stand
ing on a street corner in that city, and
he was placed in confinement. On his
person was found a new five-chambered
revolver with three empty and two
loaded cartridges. The Toronto authori
ties think him insane.

Sisler and John Dietrich, well-to-do
farmers living near Stewartstown.W.Va.,
over the trespasses of Sisler's hogs. Fire

selling against Dietrich, who owns a dis
tillery, but which failed to be established

Advertising Riverside.
The Riverside Board of Trade seems
to be catching on to the spirit of the hour
in very excellent form. Tbe comment of
all thinking persons just now is that
South California was never in so great
need of being well advertised as right at
this moment. The Board of Trade of
the city amidst the orange groves ap
pears to be alive to this fact,
for a pamphlet has been issued
by its authority giving the bis
torv, products aud other attractions
of "that lovely place. The brochure is
profusely and beautifully illustrated and
is filled with interesting statistical mat
ter. It will do much good at the East.
Here is a matter in which Loa Angeles
is, in many respects, behind tbe smaller
cities of "the section in foresight and
public spirit. There is no denying
the fact that tbe business men of
the city do not fully appreciate
the importance of sending forth in at
tractive form tbe story of the attractions
of this city. It will not do for the me
tropolis of the semi-tropics to let the
brilliant light of her many beauties be
hidden under any cover of ignorance.
Let tbe attractions of the angelic city be
fully known if it is desired to double
her population in the next five years.
Judicious and persistent advertising will
do it.

one of the prime necessities of the people
makes this business good even in dnll times
