GOOD TE5TIMC i The Rev. Mr.-Casady declared: 1 believe in the genliine Americanism m- the Roman Catholic Church, be cause I believe in the Americanism Ol my many Roman Catholic friends lit'cause it is not only Roman but an American Catholic Church. Its meui rship in this country is principally \meriean and its'future growth is to i..», among people- who come here be muse they believe in American prin ciples and American government. Its future as well as its present is inti mately•t-oimecied with American good will." The character of the Church s 1. adership, he declared, as represented l.v the clergy, the religious and the prominent laymen, argues for loyalty ID country. Loyalty is the spirit of He Church. Christian loyalty and Christian character make for good itizenship. The Rev. Mr. Casady r.poke on ^re ligious bigotry and said, in effect, that lie had no right to say anything on the subject that the objects of attack had no right to speak. He alone Who hud the right to pass judgment had done so in these words: "Condemn not, that ye*be not condemned. And w hy beholdest thou the mote in thy brother's eye and considerest not the beam in thine own eye? The servant is not above His Master. If He suf fered persecution, we must expect it. The minister then spoke of what the Catholic Church can do for America, ile discussed her responsibility, "as he largest Christian communion, in the conservation of America" her unique responsibility to Amerioa as the melting pot in dealing with the immigrant question her responsibility to American childhood, as having the largest number of children under her direct care her contribution to the Psl HOME AND FOREIGN MISSIONS. Many, when approached for help for ?vood works in foreign lands, say that i hey prefer to do their charity at home, that they wish to see the fruits df their gift. This is all very good, but if all were to answer that way, how many a good work would have io go undone? And are there not many to see and assist the charitable ~.vorks being done at home, whereas etiually good works in foreign lands must be carried on with extreme diffi culty, owing to the absolute lack of lay sympathy and assistance? God's blessings must certainly be greater for one who makes the double sacri fice of money and the satisfaction of seeing the fruits it produces than for one who demands this satisfaction, as it were, in payment for his gift. By furthering such a cause as this, you become co-laborers of those of whom it has been said: "They who instruct others unto righteousness shall shine us the stars of heaven." THE BENEDICTINES AND OUR INDIAN MISSIONS. TRIBUTES ro( HOL" AT9*r CATHOLIC PATRIOTISM. Tlie Rev. Thomas Casady, rector of the Episcopalian Church of the As i' cension, Pueblo, was among the speak ers at the Washington's Birthday cele Ifbration of the K. of C. in tlmt citj, I land gave a splendid answer to critics ^of the Catholic Church. The Indian Sentinel says: "Indian mission history reveals the fact that Uie Benedictine monks, true to the traditions of their order, are mission aries and teachers and civilizers of peoples and nations today, as they have been in the ages past. The Benedictines have several Indian mis sions in Oklahoma they have charge of all the Indians of Minnesota and of North Dakota, with the exception of the Turtle Mountain Chippewas they, care for the Sioux reservations of Crow Creek, Lower Brule and Standing Rock, South Dakota, and the Vort Peck Reservation, Montana and they attend the Catholic children of the large Government Indian School, of Chemawa, Oregon. "Jt is a remarkable fact that, among religious, only Benedictine monks have held the position of superintendents in Government Indian schools. At the present time the only priest hold ing such a position is Father Isidore llicklin, O. S. B., Superintendent of tihe Government Indian School' of Anadarko, Oklahoma." HE HAD HIS JACKET ON WRONG. After breakfast a little Kaffir urchin passed in front of the church carry ing half a dozen empty tin dishes back to the Convent kitchen. On the top one was his straw hat. It was amus ing to note that the hat was the most "dressy" piece of his attire. When right in front of the church he made an elaborate sign of the cross and then placed the hat on his head. In spite of this evident piety the "old Adam" was not entirely out of the lit tle rogue for I saw him shortly after wards steal his companion's whistle and then roundly declare he had not. Yet no sooner was the friend out of sight then he began blowing the whis tle lustily.

"Of all organizations, the Roman Catholic Church is the greatest. What position does she occupy in this great conflict of nations? Is she also on ihe verge of collapse and are her foundations likewise trembling? No! Indeed, she also manifests the scars and blows inflicted by this terrible war, but there is no indication of any serious catastrophe. "The Catholic Church, as the bril-1 liant Benedictine Odilo Rothmauer once said, is too old and has experi enced too much to lose her poise when the time recurs for the turning of another leaf in the history of the world. Her structure is solid, and s "but I know very well think the same as I do and when which there was no contradicting. Mrs. Rochford adjusted the last encumbering pin, inspected the hem critically to see if it was straight, an(j then looked up to smile disarm- i„ nrncs fa fie. "Of course, I think the guild ought to have a name," she agreed cheer fully, "but if we can't agree on one, what's the use of talking about it? To keep on discussing things like that only serves to bring out new animosi ties, I think." But we ought to be able to agree on one," Mrs. Ryan argued. "If some of the members would only give up their foolish prejudices—" "Well," dryly, "suppose you and I start by giving up some of ours." "What! And let those Germans and Italians have everything their own way? I should say not!" indig nantly. "Besides," as Mrs. Rochford began to laugh, "I am not prejudiced I have nothing against some of the names they suggested—" Except that they suggested them," Mrs. Rochford interrupted with a A ludicrous sense of the truth of this lit up Mrs. Ryan's eyes with an answering gleam.

But as busy as the tongues were they had never yet been able to suggest a name for the guild, now five months old, wholly and entirely acceptable to all concerned The guild was a loosely constructed society which grew out of a charitable desire on the part of a few women to help the families of striking glass workers in the West End. The strike was prolonged, the winter was bitterly cold and there was much destitution and consequent suffering. In the midst of the strike the steel mill shut down, throwing another thou sand men out of work, most of whom had lived improvidently from hand to mouth and who now faced what might prove appalling conditions' of hunger and cold with the stoicism which the foreigner brings with him to these elastic shores. Mrs. Ryan had learned Of these sad conditions through her husband whose business took him about the West End twice a week, and with characteristic energy she had im An Impressive ceremony took place in Africa, March 6, when Mgr. Ley naud, new Archbishop of Algiers, was I mediately set to work to enlist the aid and interest of a few friends to look after the needs of the strikers' fami lies. As the needs increased with the close of the steel mills, more women were pressed into service until nearly every parish in the city was repre sented in the number which gathered once a week in a hitherto unused vestry room of centrally located St James' Church, donated for the ladies use by Father Pender, the pastor. The ladies had done splendid work, there could be no question of that Not only had they provided warm and comfortable clothing for innumerable women and children, but they had looked after the wants of the sick— and hounded their husbands, sons and friends generally to secure some kind of temporary work for the idle men It was admirable work, and they did it well and, since the guild had proved to be such a power for good it was decided to continue it, even after the strike ended, the steel mills opened up, and prosperity reigned once more in the populous West End At various times various names had been suggested for the guild.

In the beginning Mrs. Ryan had made a ten I tative suggestion that the sewing so ciety be called St. Brigid guild, but her suggestion had been so quickly and energetically put down—"entirely too Irish, you kpow," seemed to be the unanimous opinion—that the or to any other name. Thus matters stood on the day which chronicled the foregoing con versation. Mrs. Ryan and Mrs. Roch ford had gone early to the guild room to do some cutting out, and the mat ter of the name having received its usual discussion, Mrs. Ryan had put her ingenious question: "Well, do you blame me?''' And when her good friend and heretofore staunch Upholder had an swered wiyi unexpected frankness "I'm afraid, I do, jttst a little," Mrs Ryan experienced quite an unpleasant shock—a jolt, she cabled it. "Jane Rochford!" Jshe exclaimed, reproach in her tone.| "i nevej THE CATHOLIC BULLETIN, MAY ID, 1917 "We're both to blame," Mrs. Roch ford hastened to explain "I just as much as you. Some one must give in, and why not we, who really or ganized the work and are responsible for bringing these \vomen together? They are all nice women—splendid women, some of them—" "But so pigheaded," Mrs. Ryan in terjected plaintively. "I never met such an obstinate crowd. I don't be lieve, if we could give in, that the rest of them could agree on a name." "We might try," Mrs. Rochford sug gested boldlv. "Why not take a vote on it?" "Well,' softly It wm Plain' Mi* Ryah was not so sure about the ex pediency of this. "Very well," she added after a moment's thought. "I'll tell them today to come prepared next week to vote on the question of the name." But it was Mrs. Rochford who told the ladies, at Mrs. Ryan's suggestion. You have more tact than I have," she said smiling. They were going to arbi trate the matter, Mrs. Rochford an nounced playfully, by putting it to a vote, and every woman was expected to make a valiant effort to select a name that would be acceptable to the majority. Differences were to be sunk, she implied, that their beloved organi zation in which they had labored so long together and to such good effect, might have a proper name and proper standing in the community. Much animated discussion followed the announcement, and the needle women dispersed clearly pleased at the opportunity to select a name in such a business-like manner. Little Virginia Rochford had called at the guild room for her mother, and the two walked home with Mrs. Ryan. Virginia giving an alert ear to the news of the afternoon. Do you know what Mrs. Polaschek said to me that time?" Mrs Ryan was saying, laughing vexedly. "That she was going to mail me a life of St. Hedwig. She knew if I read it—" Both women stopped to laugh. Then they went on recounting sundry amus ing things. "And that little Mrs. Heg elheimer, she said—" "And pretty Mrs. Sampson, she still thinks that St. Rose—" "Mrs. Fender, now, she's perfectly willing to arbitrate, but she would love to have us call it the Ozanam guild—" "A absolute confusion of races, Mrs. Rochford ended up helplessly. "But mother," queried Virginia curiously, who had evidently heard some war news, "isn't there' any neutral saint?" The eyes of the two women met over the child's head, -a sudden shocked shame in both their depths. 'Out of the mouths of babes,'" breathed Mrs. Ryan softly. "That's our cue for ufc," Virginia's mother answered. There was a very good crowd on the day of the voting—not the full strength of the guild, but a fine rep resentation. Father Pender, at" Mrs Ryan's invitation,, was presiding, to give dignity to die proceedings and to count the votes. Every lady, he directed, was to come up and drop her vote in the ballot box, a paste board receptacle of not too generous proportions, but quite large enough to hold in the neighborhood of a hun dred slips of paper. There were ap parently about seventy-five present In order to have no confusion it was decided to have them come up alphabetically, Father Pender callirife the names from the membership list After the first two or three had passed Father Pender got the impres sion, with a decided mental jar—that some of the ladies were depositing unusually bulky slips. Thicker pa per, I suppose," he ruminated hope fully only to have this hope smartly dispelled by the next voter who quiet ly and without any circumlocution, as it were, laid three or four slips in the box. Father Pender opened his lips with a vague intention of remonstrating or something, but what can you say to a broad disappearing back? Anyhow, on the instant he thought better of it. "That wouldn't do at all," he re minded himself, now in considerable of a panic, for the slips, two, three and four to a woman, which showed decided inclinations to overftp# on the table. •"This is a terrible state of affairs," he thought severely, a well known line setting Itself between his drawn brows, a line which became deeper and more incredulous as Mrs. Ryan herself walked jauntily up and de posited a neat and compact little bundle—but unmistakably a bundle of votes—into the mass of slips. This was too much! "One moment!" he said to Mrs. Ryan imperatively, "just wait here?" Then, "Ladies," he said, "I have no ticed somewhat to my surprise, to put it no stronger, that a majority of you have dropped in more than one slip of paper. Now, my impression about vot ing is," incisive sarcasm in his tone, "that one person had but one vote. That at least is true of most organi zations. Have you a different plan here?" His keen, inquiring glance swept like a rapier around the room. Mrs. Ryan, too, gave a startled glance at the sea of faces. Had they also adopted her plan. "I put in two proxies," on6 woman ventured timidly "two of my friends." All tongues loosened by this magic statement, there was a perfect babel of information projected at the pre siding' officer, having to do, it ap peared conclusively, with "friends" and "proxies." Mrs. Ryan alone re mained mute and flushed at the cor ner of the table, her eyes on the stern face of the priest, when Mrs. Roch ford slipped up to the table, doing her best not to laugh outright. "Is this a regular proceeding?" she asked. "Is it permissible to* vote, so extensively, by proxy?" "It is not!" answered Father Pep der decidedly. "It is a most irregular proceeding and I do not intend to give my countenance to any such—" He was checked by a horrified gasp from Mrs. Ryan. "Bllt it lav.i 'But it isn'|— sb§ bro&e in can't mean that it's wrong, or illegal, or anything like that?" Father Pender regarded her coldly. These women. What was the use? "Of course, it's wrong," in a chilly tone that indicated plainly, what else could it be? "Didn't you ever hear of stuffing the ballot box?" "Oh, but—" murmured poor Mrs. Ryan, on the verge of tears, "but we —we didn't mean anything like that. Mine were all real people," piteously. "I'm sure they—the extras ones—all were." "That may be," softening a bit "but you can see yourself how it could be abused." Mrs. Ryan nodded miserably. She had an overwhelming sense of shame, as though she had been doing some thing disgraceful. Yet every one of those whose votes she had put in had given them to her in good faith. "Father," Mrs. Rochford half whis pered, anxious to pour oil on the trou bled water—she had had no proxies and she was extracting considerable enjoyment out of the situation—"why not follow my little Virginia's sugges tion and choose a 'neutral' saint? And you make the choice." "A neutral saint?" puzzled. "Oh!" His frown relaxed as she explained. "Hum well ." He arose. Bright eyes, expectant eyes, pleas antly beaming eyes, .but not a shamed or confounded eye among all those that faced him so confidently, not to say confidingly. "Just for all the world like a lot of children," he told himself with irritated indulgence. Then 'his sense of humor, hitherto unwarrant ably absent, came dancing hack to him, and he smiled. "My dear ladies,'' he said, "when you come to vote—some day—for the President of the United States, or the Governor, say—don't, I beg of you don't undertake to vote all the absent or indifferent ladies in your neighbor hood—" There was an interrupting murmur of protest, more or less laughing, and a preening "Doesn't he think we know better than that?" went fiut tering through the crowd. "Because," Father Pender went on, now smiling genially, "there are som( quite unfeeling laws directed espe cially against such agreeable occupa tions. Now," holding up a monitory finger, "since I'm sure we all wish to conform to the letter of the law even in small things, we shall have to throw out all these votes for the rea son that so many of them were cast— illegally. Not that you meant it that way, I know," hastily. "Oh, no, Father," earnestly, and in chorus. "Well, then. So now instead of vot ing again—which you may do if you prefer, however—I have a suggestion to make on my own part. This or ganization which has done so much for poor families throughout the city, and is planning to keep on with the excellent work, could do no better than to choose for its patron one who looks with a kindly eye on all who labor and suffer, himself the head of the loveliest family the world has ever seen—the good, the gentle St. Joseph—'' The arresting applause was so sud den and hearty as to be almost dis concerting, and whatever further words Father Pender might have said were hushed on his lips by the laugh ing chatter which ensued. But he did manage a, remark to Mrs. Ryan. "Why, that seemed to be unanimous, so to speak," elevating his eyebrows. "I—ah—somehow got the impression that the ladies were a bit stubborn.'' Mrs. Ryan was still flushed, but she had a curiously satisfied look. "Not a bit of it!" she returned gaily, surprip ing herself as much as Father Pender by the statement. And Mrs. Rochford, who had been reconnoitering among the ladies, hur ried up with the laughing announce ment: "I actually believe they all cast their votes for St. Joseph, Father. The joke's on somebody, isn't it?" An examination of the ballot box, after the members of St. Joseph guild had dispersed in a particularly good humor, bore out the truth of Mrs. Rochford's belief. Nearly all of the women had evidently arbitrated with their desires and convictions, and, with a few scattering votes for St. Hedwig on behalf of the faithful Poles, and three or four aggressive St. Christophers, every vote had been cast for St. Joseph. "But where are yours, Minnie?" Mrs. Rochford asked, ruffling through the bits of paper. "They're practically all St. Joseph. Did you—" She looked up suspiciously' into Mrs. Ryan's conscious face. "Why, St Joseph was my choice." that lady admitted with a candid, if guilty smile. —Helen Mortar to, In The Magnificat.
