MEXICAN OCTKAOKH. It la tbe humble opinion of the Catholic Union and Tlmee that there haye been American administration! which would not tolerate the out rage that have been perpetrated against Catholic priests and Slstera In Mexico. The dispatches atate that these religious were driven to take refuge under the American flag at Vera Crua a result of the out rage! committed upon them and the properties of their order! during the fighting of the last six months. To be eure these people are not American citizens, but they are human beings deserving of courteous treatment, If nothing else. The State Department, however, feels that It can do nothing for them. It can not aa much as write to the murderous Mexican officials express ing Indignation at the scandalous manner In which they have treated the priests and teachers who have done more to enlighten and civilize Mexico than any other class of people. Mexico Is In a sad state. Under the new regime most of the schools, convents and other institu tions In which the refugeea taught will not be permitted to re-open by the new Mexican Government. "Watchful waiting" has not brought peace, nor will It so long as high waymen and red-handed revolution ists undertake to operate the Govern ment. gAVlNQ THE YOUTH. The efforts of public officials to check the causes and occasions of rice among the young Is com mendable. Every legitimate effort that looks to the eradication of dangeroua dance balls, objectionable moving pictures and suggestive bill boards should be supported and encouraged. While the State has a duty to perform In this matter, it is well that parents do not forget their more fundamental duty. Their re sponsibility comes first. If parents will look carefully after the amuse' menta and company of children, if they will prudently dictate the hours of their evening pleasures, tbe work of the public officer will be tar more effective. Vigilance In the home is the best safeguard for boys and girls. It is here the real crusade against vice must begin. If all that Is possible be done In the home the dangers of the outside will do little harm. When the home life la not what it abould be the outside influ ence for good can accomplish noth lng. It takes a miracle of God'a grace to save the boy or girl whose parents are unmindful of their tremendous responsibilities. CONQERNIN'U IGNORANCE. The "Guardians' of Liberty have accused the Catholic hierarchy of keeping the followers of the church In ignorance. This absurd and untrue accusation Impels the Rev, John Talbot Smith to ask the Im partial non-Catholic churchman or layman to look over our educational Institutions, from the humblest of our parochial schools to our great university at Washington, and thea aay If that accusation la Just and there isn't a hillside or valley from the orange groves of Florida to the pine-clad hills of Maine, across the vast area that lies between those pine-clad bills. Joined aa they are by the granite and marble-walled mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont and the shores of the Pacific made glorious by the Golden Gate and Its fruit-laden slopes, In which doe not nestle, supported by the beat citizenship of their time. Catholic schools and colleges, la which are taught only those thing that apeak for the welfare of thla republic and tbe purity and loftiness , of it clttaenshlp things that speak to the Catholic youth of his duty to his country, to hi family and hit faith, of those attributes that are required In these daya to create and maintain tha character of citizenship that bespeaks for our country' fu ture and its welfare, that bespeak for the continuity of the home and tbe safety of tbe republic. The "Guardians" overlook the fact that the Catholics have adopted the public school system at their own cost, and have improved it by adding to It a religious education and system that have given to this country the best and most ideal type of citizenship that it enjoys.' rra papacy and peace. Ciitrpe will he continually face to f-- with the problem of maintaining - ' - and eve whta tie war la SINQLB COPY If WSH AMEtlCAH. tll Wit Or U. -SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3. 1914 over the problem will again arise In all It meaning and consequences. How to preserve peace is the mo mentous question that I ever facing the countries of Europe. Attempts to maintain the balance of power, at tempt to preserve peace by prepar ing for war, by secret treaties, by in termarriages, and every other inven tion of diplomats, have failed and fulled disastrously, and the conse quences are beyond ennumeratlon. So long as national pride and power is sought to be mingled with racial prejudice and hatred and commer cial interest brought forward to make up any deficiency which might otherwise be lacking In a cause for ar, Europe will be confronted with war, as It always has been. An In stitution like the Papacy Is the only Institution that could make any permanent move toward placing Europe upon a peace basis, the rea son being that the Papacy Is repre sented In every nation through its priests, bishops, nuns and laymen. The Interest and influence of the Papacy In every country In Europe would make more for peace than has yet been done by all of Europe's diplomacy. The Pope enjoys an In ternational position. The Papacy is itself a world power. It could have no special Interest in one country that it would not have In another. It would not be to the interest of the Papacy to set the armies of one Cath olic priest and bishop against the armies of another priest and bishop. Neither could the Papacy have an Interest in the Inconsistent spectacle of the bishops and priests of differ ent countries praying for the success of the armies In which they are In terested. The Pope as the arbitrator of peace In Europe would go a long way toward establishing Christian brotherhood and respect among the present warring nations and at the same time be the best guarantee of peace throughout these otherwise v. ar-dlsposed countries. The fact Is being demonstrated by the registrations throughout tbe country that Republicans who two yeara ago Joined the Progressive party are returning to their first love. The same is true of Demo crats who Joined the new movement. Do not take yourself more serl ously than other people are In the habit or taking you. Many too Berlous chaps are looked upon a a Joke. Think twice, and If need be a hundred times, before beginning to sputter In anger and ignorance. The man who cherishes resent ment put a good memory to an Ignoble use. CATHOLIC SCHOOLS. Archbishop Rlordan, of Sap Fran cIbco, sums up the reasons for Catholic schools by asking: "Why do Catholics at great expense and with many sacrifice erect and main tain their own separate schools when the public school of the State are free and open to them? Ia It because they are enemies of the public schools? No. It Is because the public schools do not give us all that we want. Catholics are not enemies of the public schools. The public schools belong to us as much a to anybody else. We have evidence of that when the tax collector comes around I No, we are not enemies of the public schools. But we believe that those schools do not go far enough in educating our children We believe that children should be trained not only to know the need ful thing for this life, but also to learn the thing that ax needful for the life to come. Thia we feel Is the first essential of education." WANTS NO PARTY. "We want no Catholic party In America," asserts the Catholic Universe, "and we want no ant! Catholic parties. W believe that the record of Catholic in this coun try entitle them to at least, aa much respect a those who tear the const! tutlon to tatters, and go out under the banner of Intolerance and re ligious hate to wage war against their Cathollo fellow cltlzena. With out forming a Cathollo party, w could raise the volcea of our multi plied Catholic organizations sgalnst this Injustice, and ask our fair- minded non-Catholic neighbors to espouse the cause of Justice with us," CLOSES TONIGHT. The bazar which has been con ducted at Llederkrans Hall the past few day for the benefit of Sts. Mary and Elisabeth Hospital, will com to a close this evening, and Chairman E. J. Parker predicts that a handsome sum will be realised for this worthy charity.
