It is said that the thens Quee, n of Hlawaii once dintied with 1're-ident Cleve land, but iht was not a nie gress: she had niever belonged Ito a race of slaves, and she was at that time a reigning monarch in her own country. Prcsident Roosevelt and family enitertained at a pub lic reception in the White House two negro females who were escorted by a male ne gro oifficiaL Such male ne groes have appeared a Presi dential receptions, but never before were there any negro women. It is the woman that makes the social stand ard. Men count for nothing unless they are accepted as est;orts and equals bly the women. If it had ever hap pened in thie White House that the white women present at ofhiioal receptions had treated the negro men lpresent as social equals and compaui ionus, the country wouild have been horrified: but nothing of the sort ever occurred. When, then, two negro wo men alplleared in evening dress, they marked an inuio vatioln ii soctial natters that began with Presildent to)se velt. This is one of the condi tiouis whih i 'resident Roose veilt has citalted ini the poli ties of hlis almlinlristration, which is wholly difflerentii from anythijigi that has ap peared in the political history of his predecessors. They all appointed negroes to office; but he alone adopted them into relations of soxial equal. ity. hut that was only the beginning.

Congress Adjourned. ''he fifty-seventh congress has adjourned sine die. Its last session ended by limita tion last Wednesday noon, its closing days having been cha. racterized by bitter party strife brought about abut by the arbitrary rulings and conduct of the Republican majority in unseating a Democratic meim her of the House from Mis msourri in the abhsnse of a quorum and in violation of all rules. Following this arbitrary and outrageous act of the majority, the l)emocrats orga nized a filibuster which they maintained to the end. We believe the minority did well i thus to protest in the most vigoroui.9 and effective manner against the outrage perpetrat. ed by thile majority on their rights. They have thus call ed tI;e attention of tile coun try mst pointedly to the ty ratinical and high handed methods of the Republican majority in the lower house of congress. Mr. Richardseon, the leader of the minority was right in saying: "1 do not consider that the man who strikes the first blow is the aggressor, but" the man who make, it necessary. We are simply defending our rights, showing our oppasition to suih an unlicerdelted act, as that by which the Republi (clls l.1 tilliPatE.(! a iiiinhl er of 1 the House, Whleni 110 q(llOrulml was |)resetit." After all, under the Reed rules now governing the hloulse, that was all that the mi(Irity could do and it a would have been ree'reant to I its duty if it had done it.

'This is in the words of the Archbishop, a question of both morals and religioon. "The dangers that threaten our civilization may be traced to the family for the root of the commonwealth is in the homes of the people. "The social and civil life springs from the domestic life of mankind. The official life of a nation is ordinarily the reflex of the moral sense of the people. "The morality of public ad ministration is to be gauged by the moral standard of the family. The river does not rise above its source." As His Eminence became spehcifo ln i charges against the pc~lie jy evil, his voice became mde earnest, his man-' ner emphatic. "The growing tendency," 'he continued, "in the men and women of the world to avoid marriage and its respon. sibilities is wrong from both the moral and religious view. point. Not enough people view marriage as a sacrament, and realize that a large faro ily is a bleasing. "To defeat nature in ful filling the purpose of marriage is as criminal as to commlit murder. This moral law. strict, unbending. is alone re cognized by the Church. It governs the whole question of marriage, and the sacrameunit would certainly not be ad ministered to any one who violated the sacred ends of marriage. Such a one lives in a state of sin. No excuse is possible-neither financial reasons nor any other. The question of enconomics has no place, should have none, in regulating the size of fan-, ilies.
