But the appreciation of this faith ful and untiring labor, was proven on Sunday morning, when a sur prise in the form of a purse was giveu him, which had been arrang ed by the trustees Messrs. W. F. Langen and Geo. Sloan. I After the early Mass, Mr. Langen I by a little ruse, ushered Father Cusack to the west door of the church, where the congregation "en t masse" filled the spacious lawn, and ja purse of more than $300. donated I by each and every member of the parish, was presented, with a most eloquent speech, by Geo. Sloan. The speech was as follows: "Rev. Fr. Cusack: In behalf of these assembled people, and the en tire congregation, I wish to remind tyou that 20 years ago today you ' iwere nrriainpH a nrioat nf ikaPotkn.! ' iub vaiuu- lie church. In that ordination you assumed a life of sacrifice and self denial. You knew that you would e singled out as the object of re roach by anarchists and the ene- ies of the Catholic church and hat your own people would some times thank you but little for your noble work. Undaunted, however, by the prospect of persecution you unhesitatingly accepted the call of the Master to follow Him. Your nets; a tutored mind, clear cut logic, business acumen, and winning per sonality by which you might have fame, fortune and honor, were laid aside in the world for that higher spiritual call which yields in world ly goods but a meager living. We havebut to look around us to see and find ample evidence of your predence and untiring zeal. You have been to each and every ..one of us fair and honest and if at timM (mn kna ktUin nKl i r rA , to chide us it was but an admoni ,tiion that we might see and do the ..better things in life. So we 'have J stopped and turned from our busy rand seinfih lire this morning to thank you for your many favors on plans for Australia's model capital city, and will organize a corpora tion to build systematically and in order, as one would build a house, the city beautiful. It is to be slumless, with a civic center about which the city will be built, and with a system of real estate taxa tion that will insure home owner ship to its inhabitants aud prevent them becoming mere hewers of wood and drawers of water for a fortunate few. It is to be an indus trial city with ideal residential sec tion and is to be surrounded by in numerable small farms, capable, it is estimated, of feeding a population of 50,000. Letchworth, England, "the garden city," was the first city of this kind built and the ideas there embodied will be closely ad hered to by Mr. Moss. Montana ; railroads converging at Billings are interesting themselves in the enter prise and if it succeeds, which now seems certain, Mr. Moss will have achieved most enviable fame. It is well to remark in passing, and the reflection is an agreeable one that Paris and Monroe county con tinue to give the world men and women of vision, who use their tal ent in service.
