The juris dictions of British Columbia, Quebec ami Maritime Provinces have as yet made no levy, but the sentiment throughout is very favorable to the grant. Th"1 need is great and press ing doubtless the thirty thousands Knights of Columbus will create a fund worthy of their order, to aid the work among these people who are now trying to establish churches and schools. A Rectory Wrecked.—Rev. Francis P. Duffy, of the Twenty-seventh Divi sion, did not leave war behind him when he left the trenches. He had it brought right into his own rectory recently in New York, when he aided in subduing a man armed with a shovel who suddenly ran amuck. The visitor wrecked the ground floor rather successfully before Father Duffy chased him into the street.

Seattle has a large Japanese population and there are included in it five or six Catholic families.

A day nursery for Japanese boys and girls under seven will be opened May 1. A Japanese couple will have charge of the nursery at first, but next September three Mary knoll Sisters and a Japanese Sister of the Order of the Visitation will come to Seattle from Los Angeles and assume charge of the Mission.

Abbey Given to Nation.—Whitby Ab bey, near Scarborough, England, has been presented to the nation by its k owner. This is the second of the old abbeys to become national within he past few weeks. Whitby was once the abbey of the famous St. Hilda. It, is a pity that the embarrassed owners of some of these ruins do not present.' them to the spiritual descendants of I their builders. They would not then I remain ruins, but would be gradually restored to monastic life. This is what is taking place at Buckfast. i where the monks are rebuilding, stone by stone, and with their own hands, the ancient church Mid monastery. Scotch Branch of Catholic Physi cians.—A local branch of St. Luke's Medical Guild of Catholic physicians in Glasgow and the West of Scotland has been formed, of which a number of Catholic doctors have already be come members.

Scott's Descendant Dead.—A Cath olic granddaughter of Sir Walter Scott has just passed away, in London. The death of this lady, the Hon. Mrs. Maxwell Scott, plunges many Cath olic families into mourning, as her husband, the Hon. Joseph Maxwell, was uncle of the Duchess of Norfolk, and her half sisters are Mrs. Wilfrid Ward and Lady O'Connor. Her son, Gen. Walter Maxwell Scott, who holds the D. S. O. and C. M. G.. succeeds his mother as owner of the historic Abbotsford. Mrs. Maxwell Scott was the daughter of Sir Walter Scott's granddaughter, who was in her turn the daughter of his daughter, so the female line is unbroken from the great poet-novelist direct. Solemn Requiem Mass was sung at the Brompton Ora tory. Red Trickery.—The Same Ruling Press which did not tire of rehashing atrocities reports ad nauseam during the war is mum as a mummy about the war being waged against the Catholic Church in various parts of the world. Thus a Swiss journal re cently published a report from Kron stadt that Roumanian agents had tricked Bishop Glattfelder into con fessing his friendship for his native Hungary and then condemning him to death. Only the intervention of the Red Cross and of some British officials saved the prelate from execution. But you will look in vain for such news in the average sccular journal in the United States. Italian Catholics Active.—The Ital ian Catholic Party is inaugurating a movement for the formation of an international organization based on the Catholic program socially and po litically as a means of counter balanc ing the Socialist Internationale, ac cording to the Rome correspondent of the Echo de Paris. The first congress of the Catholic Party will be held either in Rome or in Paris this sum mer, when a policy will be drafted. According to the article, the Catholics intend to exercise greater influence in both labor and legislation throughout the world. Papal Message.—The Papal Nuncio in Stuttgart, Germany, has received from the Cardinal Secretary of State the following message in response to the address of loyalty sent to Rome by the Catholic mass meeting held in Stuttgart recently. "The deter mined and united stand of the brave Catholics in the face of every attack on the denominational school is edify ing and encouraging. The Holy Father thanks God for this attitude and at the same time sends his greet ings to the large assembly in Stutt gart. His Holiness also sends the Apostolic Blessing." Schools in Austria.—The Catholics of Bregenssa, Austria, have recently met together in considerable numbers to decide upon a plan of action, to meet the most pressing problems of the present day. so far as these affect Catholic conditions. The chief speak er, Father Frolicli, S. J.. delivered a trenchant speech, denouncing in vig orous terms the school regulations made effective on April 10 of last year. These regulations, he said, can be traced directly to the action of the Austrian Minister of Worship, and they are just a "try out" for launching a campaign against the confessional schools. Church Is Guarded.—Since the re cent outrage and act of sacrilege, when the Catholic cathedral of St. George at Southwark, England, was broken into by thieves and the sacred vessels stolen from the Tabernacle, the clergy of the cathedral have or ganized an armed guard to protect the cathedral and its contents at night. More than a hundred men of the con gregation have volunteered for the guard, and a vigil is kept every night by two men, each carrying a loaded revolver and accompanied by three watch dogs. They patrol the building all night. The watch will be continued until arrangements have been made for a paid guard. Roman Processes.—In addition to Venerable Oliver Plunkett, Venerable Louise de Marillac and Venerable Anna Maria Taigi, Trinitarian Terti ary. whose processes are complete, in the Vatican Palace on a recent Sunday took place the solemn reading in the presence of the Holy Father of the Decree "De Tuto" of the martyrdom of the Venerable Companions of the In stitute of the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, and of Venerable Marie Clothilde Angele of St. Francis Borgia and ten Companions, Ursulines of Valenciennes also of the decree for the beatification and declaration of martyrdom of Venerable Charles Lu anga and Matthew Murumba and Com panions, commonly called the Uganda Martyrs.

Before Pope Leo XIII started his campaign of prayer for the con version of England, Father Fletcher started his guild for the same object. The Catholic Evidence Guild co operates with Father Fletcher's organ ization in outdoor lectures for the cause. Lord Allenby, hero of the Pal estine campaign, is a nephew-in-Iaw of Father Fletcher. The Guild under Father Fletcher has knit together a movement thousands strong. The outdoor Ransom lectures have won great success. Bishop Wars on Shows.—The new Bishop of Triest, Mgr. Bartolomasi, has started a campaign against ob jectionable moving pictures as a cause of the moral corruption of the young. In a special pastoral letter he calls attention to the increasing corruption of the minds of young children. To stop this, the Bishop says, parents, the schools and the authorities must unite in a vigorous course of action. This must be followed. Mgr. Bartol omasi says, by a systematic censor ship of the moving pictures, since it is by means of these that the minds of young children are first led astray. But even such a censorship is insuffi cient unless it is accompanied by care ful instruction given to the children in their homes by their parents.
