LOUISVILLE. KV SATURDAY, JANUARY 25, 1913,
The daily press, reporting the Sun
day sermons In a number of our
Louisville Protestant churches, note
that the Rev. Dr. Aquilla Webb,
pastor of the Warren Memorial
church, stirred hla congregation with
the following confession:
"I dn not know the facta about
other denominations, but the facts
in the Presbyterian churches, both
North and South, are almply ap
palling. Last year 5.117 Presby
terian churchee did not receive a
single soul on confession of faith.
This included all ' the Presbyterian
churchea in this country, but the
burden on the heart ie unutterable."
Dr. Webb took for hla text, "How
shall we escape if we neglect so
great salvation?" saying "The epistle
to the Hebrews was written aa a
word of exhortation by the author
to some special church. And further,
the epistle is written almost entirely
to Christians who were beginning to
drift away from their great salva
tion." Why did not the reverend gentle
man comnlete his confession by
tii9 th npnnlfl who waa the
n: 1 1 1 ! r - .
author and when and to what special
church the epistle was written. Let
him seek this truth and he will
probably become aware that he also
Is one of those drifting away irom
their great Balvatlon, a salvation that
God has rouchsafed only through the
Catholic church, the church He
founded and "against which the gates
of hell shall not prevail."
PRETEXTS WILL CONTESTS.
A most excellent bill was intro
A,ti aat week In the Indiana
Senate by Senator Evan B. Stotsen
i Monr iihnnv one that the
veils, . . ,
Hoosler solons should enact into
law. The bill provides that a
testator may file a copy of hla last
will with the County Recorder and
that all conteatants of the will must
fiia kt obiectlons within one year
efVTthe Instrument haa been filed
'Mm i"r a"mP
time been studying the laws relating
to contesting of wills on the grounds
of the Insanity of the testator at the
time of making the will and has
found that many wills have been
broken that should have stood as the
testator left them. His plan would
abolish contests of wills except
where the testator failed to file his
will before his death.
Recently the Very Rev. Thomaa J.
Shahan, Rector of the Catholic Uni
Veraity at Washington, received a
most commendatory letter from His
Eminence Cardinal Merry del Val,
from which we extract the following:

Legislature to enact a law requiring
residence in that State of one of the
contracting partiea before marriage
can take place there. The Governor
makes this recommendation In order
to restrain youthful, hasty marriages
and to prevent elopements Into the
State from other sections of the
country. Such a law Is badly needed
in Kentucky and Indiana.
No matter who the man or how

Though somewhat tardy. Admiral
Dewey, like many other prominent
Americans who mixed with the
Guardians of Liberty, thinking they
were a patriotic organization, has
repudiated them and their bigotry.
The appointment of a Vigilance
Committee In every Catholic parish
in Massachusetts for the prevention
of delinquency among Catholic boy

that can not be too highly praised,

of almost equal fame and popularity,
as one of its brilliant citizens, but up
