The order waa founded by Father

awakened th* controversy on th«

the attacks on th* l>aull»<« have
been of a matt scurrilous nature. I
hold, after careful consideration of
th* subject, that the letter of the
»-.,|,.. to Cardinal OMMM I* a nega
tlv* victory to the American part}'
In the, Id.man Catholic church. It
Is a very mild letter. So far aa 1
can see, aa an outsider, unfamiliar
with fuch a complicated organisa
j tion an the Reman Catholic church,
the >*aullst fathers are allowed by
the Pope to go on with their work.
Their enemies will not be allowed to
persecute them. If the experiment
I* a. success It will be followed up.
Americanism In »v to the tlmra
Protestants ought to rejoice In It
and encourage It as much as they
can.
"Now I am not pleading for the
llnman Catholic church. I know that
church Is quite abla to take rare of
herself. And It Is not courtesy for
me to Interfere, for this Is really a
■ family matter. HUM »>«• new move

great future there, will be » coming
toother of all of Clod's children of
all parts of the world. We are near
1 enough at present to shake, hand*,
ami we are fraternising nil the time.
It will be a happy time when all
