Our English Admiral Sims in the American navy Is at it again. Two weeks ago in a public .address at London he minimized America's part In the war and successfully licked King George's boots. This past week he denounced the Sinn Fein movement and all American citizens who dare question Eng land's right to throttle and murder Irish men and women. Pretty near everyone now undertands that, Sims, who was born in England, like most of that class, still swears allegiance to John Bull first, and it is the duty of the Secretary of the Navy to remove this Englishman from the American service. would gladly do the work for a fraction of the expense. If we must be represented at the British Court have we not the right to Insist on being represented by an American, not an imitation in the bargain? IRISH EX-SOLDIER'S PROTEST. WOULD CAUSE DECAY. The olly-tongued Socialist orator would have his hearers believe that his cult is the greatest builder imaginable. Wherever It has been tried, however, it has proved to be a most destructive proposition. It will lead to national decay and in the long run develop a system of slavery. THE ONLY WAY. FATHER MORRISSEY. Far away from Indiana, -where he had labored so long, Very Rev. An drew Morrlssey, C. S. C, Coadjutor General of the Holy Cross Order, has passed away. Over In Paris, whither he journeyed to assist the General of the order, who Is in feeble health, Father Morrlssey was suddenly called. His passing brings sorrow to all of the boys and men In our own State and elsewhere, who knew and loved him and to whom he was always the big-hearted, good-natured, humble and zeal ous "Father Morrlssey." The order will miss him, Notre Dame will miss and long mourn him, and the Church and Nation have lost a great priest and an educator of the first rank. But he had done his work well within the years allotted blm and his name and works will shine in .hls, beloved Notre Dame for all time! Indiana Catholic. INCREDIBLE. It seems incredible in these days, 6ays The Missionary, that any na tion that has had any contact "with civilization should be guilty of the crimes that England has committed and is committing in Ireland. The momentary gain is only a postpone ment of judgment. The wrath of outraged humanity has not found expression as yet because it is etunned by the audacity and shame fulness of English savagery. The silence of the moment is ominous rather than reassuring for England. There will be no peace upon this earth as long as England thinks that the world domination is still possible. In the words of Chesterton: "The ruin of England will be the reconstruction of the world. The war that will end us will be the war that will end war." England must become civil ized or die. With the True Toico, we take "with a grain of salt" the report that another meeting is to be ar ranged between President Do Valera and Sir James Craig, the leader of the Ulster faction of Orangemen. No doubt there are those in Ireland, as well as in England, who still hopo that some way out of the present tangle can be found through euch a meeting. But -wo do not join in this hope. The truth is that tho way out is very simple. Let Great Britain recognize Irish independence and tho matter is settled. There la no otner way. An Irishman who volunteered for active service at the outbreak or. war, received a decoration, and was later granted a commission, makes the following feeble protest against the system of "maintaining law and order" now prevalent In his nativo country. I stood in the blood-soaked fields of France And saw an English comrade fall In No Man's Land, where death- fiends dance. I hastened to his call. I carried him through the blood and mire, I dressed his wounds and calmed his fears. He strove to speak his wild desire Consumed his words like raging fire, But he thanked me through his tears. . Beside my ruined home I stood And heard my mother's stifled prayer: "Father, forgive them" while the blood Oozed from her bosom bare. She whispered a name with her parting breath, "Who Is the fiend that struck this blow?" She whispered a name -with her parting breath, My God! 'Twns tho man I saved from death A few short years ago.

HAVE ENOUGH DEBT. President Harding's hint that the war debts of the allies may be refunded raises again the question whether we should guarantee the debts of England, France and Italy. We can see no good reason why we should undertake to shoulder the whole burden of the war. Guaran teeing the war debts of those na tions would mean Just that. They acn not pay even the Interest on their debts let alone the principal. K we guarantee the refunded debt, we will bo left to pay it. And W have debts enough of our own to take care of. At the present time there is not a solvent nation in Europe that took part in the war. There are over 155,000 British troops in -Ireland now, and the island- is just tho size of Indiana. It costs over $5,000,000 a week to keep them there, and yet England Is too poor to pay the interest on the American loan. If disarmament is to become an established fact, why does not George of England give the ex ample? In other words, "Let George do it." DIPLOMAS FOR FIFTEEN. SURELY NEEDED.

The month's mind mass for the repose of the soul of Mrs, Bridget O'SullIvan was celebrated in the Church of St. Louis Bertrand on Wednesday morning, May 25. Mem bers of the parish, especially the elder generation, will mls3 from their midst this devout soul whose life was tor so many years passed, as It were, in the shadow of the church, and whose love for God's service found expression In a deep attachment for all tne devotions held at the church, as well aB In a generous and loyal Interest in all that affected the welfare of the par ish. With her passing a long and beautiful life came to a peaceful and edifying eloee. Once the mother dened successively by the loss of a daughter, two sons and her hus band, yet through all her dark times of trial and the succeeding years marked intermittently by acute physical suffering her staunch Irish faith maintained her in a spirit of quiet patience and submis sion to God's wilt which truly sanc tified her declining days. A true child of St. Dominic, in whose order she was a tertiary, she seemed, like him, to have learned how always to speak either to God or of Him, and she found in the rosary and other Dominican devotions a never-failing source of spiritual strength. The summons of death found her ready to go to God, and surrounded by ner tnree surviving daughters, two of whom are religious, she answered the call, finding, we are sure, a mild and clement judge in Him whom she had faithfully served during life.
