N., com mandant of midshipmen at the Naval Academy, and Major John Marston, who commands the local marine gar rison. Captain C.luverius and Major Marston expressed their approval of i the work done by this organization, of j the place It filled in the lives of the 'service men. and their deep apprecia tion of the spirit and work of those re sponsible for the building and Its fa cilities. Rev. H. J. Monohan. of Baltimore, ; State chaplain of the Knights of Co lumbus, delivered the address of the afternoon, and dedicated the building. Father Monohan emphasized the point that the building was for the service j men of all faiths and continents, and ! said that this was simply in the spirit |of the Catholic church, which in its ef forts to serve and uplift, made no dis tinction among those who needed it. | Father Monohan s|M>ke of the condi tions undeT which America entered I the war, doing so. he said, when it be came clear that it must tight for the i cause of humanity and civilization. I He spoke of the spirit of the Knights |of Columbus on the other side and the service it had performed in keeping the spirits of the men high and strong, and said that there is an unending tight against the spirit of bigotry. He took occasion to emphasize that neither the order nor the Catholic church undertook to influence its mem bers in their political acts, but said that the only stand It took, and that good churchmen and good citizens should take, was that of applying the test of fitness to candidates for public office, whether they be Jew or Gentile, Catholic or Protestant. Father John Toohey, rector of St. Mary's Church, this city, followed Father Monohan. He spoke particular ly of the necessity on the part of serv ice men, as for all others, of periods of relaxation and opportunities for re creation under reasonable and whole some conditions. He said that the Knights of Columbus had taken up this work to till this real need in the lives of the service men.; The last speaker was Mrs. Jennie V. Green, of Baltimore, State regent of the Daughters of Isabella, who assured those present that the Daughters would always stand with the Knights and co-operate with them in the work they were doing.

' tr;::.. 1 .," , 1 =r :■ t„ 1 === STORY OF ACHIEVEMENT (From the Democratic State Platform, adopted by the Convention that nominated Albert C. Ritchie for Gov ernor, E. Brooke Lee for Comptroller of the Treasury, Thomas J. Keating for Attorney General, and Caleb C. Magruder for Clerk of the Court of Appeals.) <4 Wc remind the people of the State of the redemption by the Democratic party, under the administration of Governor Harrington, of the pledges made by us in the platform of 1915. The budget amendment lias been adopted. Continuing appropriations have been abolished, and legislative* ex penses greatly reduced. Useless offices have* been eliminated, the membership of the State Roads Commission reduced, and the Conser vation Commission lias been formed. Tin* State Law Department, under the Attorney-Gen eral, has been created, and special counsel to the State boards and commissions abolished. A uniform system of accounting lias been inaugurated. The ‘envelope system’ lias been abolished, and a special registration day before primary elections pro vided in the counties. The Home Rule Law lias been passed. The system of good roads has been maintained and en larged. The agricultural resources of the State have been de veloped and the State College of Agriculture reorganized. The public school system lias been improved. A State Board of Prison Control lias been created and the way cleared for the abolishment of contract labor. In order to meet the war emergency and to enable Maryland to do its whole duty in keeping with its tradi tions, Governor Harrington convened the General As sembly in special session in. June, 1917. The work al ready begun by the Maryland Preparedness and Survey Commission appointed by him enabled the General As sembly to provide the needed legislation without delay. A complete program of legislation drafted by the Attor ney General was presented on the day the Legislature met. Among the bills were those providing for a million-dol lar war loan, the Maryland Council of Defense, a State farm for prison labor, the Maryland .State Guard, sus pending judgments, legal proceedings and statutes of limitation in behalf of soldiers and sailors absent in service, amending the militia laws, providing that sol diers and sailors should not be stricken from the registra tion books and authorizing successive legal holidays. There were also other measures designed to conserve health and property, and the Compulsory Work law, the first of its kind in the country, which was copied by other States and received nation-wide approval. The Absent Soldiers and Sailors’ Vote law was passed. The prompt and effective steps taken by Maryland proved of invaluable assistance in helping to mobilize the * resources of the country for war purposes. But the constructive legislation enacted during the present administration did not end with the redemption of the party pledges arid the provisions for the war emer gencies. Important reforms have been effected in the bank and insurance laws. The Motor Vehicle laws have been amended. Measures aiding the conservation of fish, oysters and crabs have been enacted. Child labor legislation has also been passed. The State Armory Commission and the State Board of Motion-Picture Censors have been created. Steps have been taken to bring the Eastern and West ern Shores into closer relations than ever before by the establishment of ferries across the Chesapeake Bay. The financial affairs of the State have been managed with exceptional ability, the accounting system im proved and simplified, and the Comptroller’s office main tained upon a thoroughly business basis under Mr. Mc- Mullen. We have done far more than redeem the promises made by us to the people of Maryland.” ■■ ■-- - -- mmmmrnmtmmmmmmmmmM LITERARY CIRCLE OF ST. MARY’S CHURCH GIVE ENTERTAINMENT rapt, Wleirard Gives Interesting Ad dress On Loordes France, With Pictures Exhibited - St. Mary’s Literary Circle gave . a j very pleasing program at its social, i meeting Friday night last. This was the second meeting held by the circle, j and all members felt greatly encour aged at the large number present. The program opened wdth a musical j selection by Miss Caroline Lutz, which she rendered most beautifully. The “Question Box.’’ by Rev. Father Too hey, rector of St. Mary’s, under whose supervision the Literary Society is conducted, was most interesting and profitable. Miss Josephine Riordan. gave in her ; delightful style, with deep feeling and j the best interpretation of the subject ! matter, a reading, entitled “Cardinal I Mercier.” ~ The feature of the efening's program was an address on the subject, “My Visit to Lourdes,” hv Capt. Bernard .1 Wiegard, who recently returned from France where he served for eleven months with the American Expedition ary Forces. Capt. Wiegard exhibited the picture of I/ourdes and the surrounding coun try, which served to make the address 'the more interest.ng. Capt. Wiegard told of the cathedral i there, three churches having been built one after the other on the same j site. Great miracles and wonderful cures have been wrought at a shrine there. His address was interspersed a’ various points with appropriate music, and popular patriotic songs were given throughout the evening's program which was most entertaining and profitable.
