Members of St. Vincent de
Paul's Society Hold Im
portant Meeting
Organization /to Assist in
the Campaign Started
Against Vice
The committee appointed to perfect
the reconstruction of the , St. , Vincent
de Paul society met yesterday after
noon in the parochial residence of St.
Mary's cathedral and discussed/the
various phases of Catholic charity ac
tivity in the city. Father J. B. Hanni
eran, who had been instructed to secure
a superintendent for the work, reported
that he had not yet been able to find a
competent man who would be willing
to undertake the task.. The location
of the office of the central bureau: of
the society has not yet been definitely
deolded upon.
The branches of the work were out
lined, and is was decided to Include in
the activities of the society a campaign
for the suppression of the forms of vloo
that flourish In the city and are a
temptation to young persons. Among
the heads of the hydra that are In line
for crushing are the nlckelodeums, the
penny arcades, nickel In the slot ma
chines and the obscene postals that dis
grace the shop windows "of. the city. The
church will 00-operate with the other
bodies that have organized with the
object of stamping out the many forms
of vice that have flourished under po
lice and political protection while re
spectable citizens have been indifferent.
•The Catholic Ladies' Aid society Is
putting forth a special effort in a* line
of activity which the members consider
more necessary than any other, that of
establishing homes for . self-suporting
girls. While It is Insisted that these
are in no way a charity, . the society
seeks to eliminate the enormous profits
charged by rapacious landlords and
thereby give the full value for
their money. A beginning was made
several years ago on a smaller scale,
but the fire destroyed the building. A
new home for self-supporting girls will
be ready for occupancy: in two or three
weeks. A 60-room house has been se
cured in California street between Polk
and Larkln. v The Catholic Ladies'" Aid
society will endeavor to furnish It in
as homelike a way as possible. There
will be reading and reception rooms
and a matron and a sufficient staff of
assistants will be engaged. The super
vision will be by a board of manage
ment appointed by the society, consist-
Ing of three members of the organiza
tion and two prominent' men of af
The charges for room and board will
be as low as It is possible to make
them and yet cover the running ex
penses." It is the plan of the society
to make this home in California, street
the first of a series to be established
in different sections of the city...
Other general charity work, such as
the establishment of a girls' directory,
a girls' employment bureau and a sani
tarium for the poor, will be^diccussed
at the grand council of the Catholic
Ladies' Aid society, which will begin
September 24. at Del Mar, near Santa
Cruz. \u25a0 -\u25a0 .. , \u25a0.'' * .

WASHINGTON, Aug. 25.— Naval . cir
cles were considerably /"aroused 5 today
by the editorial in; the New, York Her
ald advocating the ; sale : of the • Philip^
pines and • pointing out why. this ; is .the*
most practical and businesslike course
for the United- States 'government Jto
adopt. These authorities; hesitate <to
express their views openly,: realizing
that the administration :1s in tsSvor] of
holding on to the Philippines.
Some believe the : Philippines should
not " be" sold and s agree t withl Secretary
Taft when he said .this country, was
under a moral obligation- to keepthem
at least until the Filipinos are able 5 to
govern themselves. Many in ' the ,navy
are strongly . In', favor of; holding the
islands, beMeving ; they will prove ".a
necessity : to the navy, in case,— the
United States wishes- to contest the
mastery 'of the Pacific.
Naval officials . have recently taken
up the question of sale of the Philip-;
pines among themselves, especially
since the * '-decision? to" transfer the At
lantic battleship fleet to the Pacific, and
opinion has been about equally di
vided. . The prevailing "opinion; seemed
to be that if it' were possible to keep
Manila for its : strategic; 7 value under
conditions arranged with the buyer," the
: Philippines should* be. sold.;

First Unitarian "church .yesterday'morn
ing/ preaching on the text'\f rom -John;
chapter. ill, 29th and 30th verses: : "This
my Joy therefore is fulfilled ;\ he must
increase, but. I must decrease." ;- v
The speaker told eloquently of. the
mission of John the; Baptist, the em
bodiment of the older, ascetic "Judaism.
"Ho" is portrayed," / said the/.mlnister,
"by.; the evangelists as., but the' mes
senger sent before the -Messiah, con
tent ."to do his work and pass .from
sight : v if he could contribute; towards
the fulfillment of the work of- one
greater than himself. / And he points
out to his followers that his: Joy is
complete, for, though he jl must de
crease, Jesus is to -Increase.''
:-; The clergyman then drew compari- j
sons between the life of John the Bap- i
tlst and the lives of other great men. /
"But," he continued, . "John the ' Bap
tist is more than the picturesque; figure
which completes the line of the Hebrew
prophets. He is the; type of the? old

it. is : required by "principles of Justice
and good serisethat a workman should
take upon; himself all the ordinary
rlsks-of ' his employment," to the voice
of the house ; of. commons in" 1897 that
."sound , economic doctrine requires • that

in the r carrying -on of his industry."
Since ; July • 1 \u25a0. every workman incapaci

weekly payment amounting, to not more
than, half his average' weekly earnings,

As Agent of College Head
Ting Sing Will Pay

American Trip Shows Hina
Where Countrymen
> U. Ting Sing, a wealthy Chinese silk
merchant of Shanghai, who arrived at
the St. Francis early, yesterday morn-
Ing, will visit the University of Cali
fornia at Berkeley <oday to gain all
the knowledge he can in the short Urns
prior to his early departure. '
Ting. Sing, who was educated at th#
Anglo Chinese college In Shanghai, is
the accredited agent of a wealthy Chi
nese, Chlng Chong. the founder of th«
Chlng Chong college of Shanghai. Ha
has visited several American colleges,
among them . North Carolina. Trinity
college and Columbia university. H#
said last night that,, what he has seen
lnj: the' United; States will " be used to
help. his countrymen who are students.
The lack of technical education in
China is one of the principal draw
backs, said the visitor, who on his re
turn .will advocate the establishment
of technical, schools.
Tins Sing said he has. learned many
things on the trip. He knows English,
thoroughly and expresses himself with
. "Chinese schools teach only the ordi
nary primary education as It Is. known
In the United States," he said. "Th«
, higher education for the masses Is
what I and my co-operators aYe strhr
; ing for. The establishment of techni
cal schools. I think, would result
greatly to the benefit of my, country."
' In compahy with J. R. Thomas, a
; Shanghai and New York merchant.
Ting Sing left Shanghai some months
ago and for the first time in his llf»
visited foreign . countries. Equipped
with a first class education the traveler
Journeyed acros* the : Trans-Siberian
railway^ to St. Petersburg accompanied
by Thomas. '.They then journeyed to
London, where • several of the promi
nent English schools ;were visited and
the educational methods investigated.
Three days In Paris followed and then
Ting Sing crossed the Atlantic to New
During his stay In the United States
he has gathered a veritable storehouse,
and among the. big piles of luggage at
his hotel is an accumulation of educa
tional works which he has purchased
In America.
He spoke last night of the American
methods as compared with the Chinese
and said that here he saw no waste.
'"There is » use for everything her©
and in many things we want, to follow
you., I propose the Introduction of
technical . schools in China. We have
the rudiments, but I consider w» need
to go deeper into the sciences than
we "have up" till now. Metaphysics,
physiology and psychology we do not
study greatly' in our schools. The pu
pils get but a smattering, and I, think
we should go deeper into these and
many other subjects than we do. That
is. what I have, bean studying In my
Journey, and I shall advocate it on my
return to China." s
