The scenes at the dedication of the new
Catholic university in Washington would
iiave made our Puritan forefathers turn
over in their graves. At the banquet in
honor of the occasion were the president

secretary of state made a speech congrat

Cardinal Gibbons, of Baltimore, and
Bishop Gilmour, of Cleveland, represent
to the full the spirit of American patriot
ism that throbs in the warm hearts of
Catholics born and bred under the Stars
and Stripes. The Catholics of the new
time recognize the American spirit as
fully as anybody alive. Cardinal Gib-
believes in the separation of church
and state, and in the reading of the Bible
by the common people. In his dedica
tion sermon at the university Bishop
Gilmour used these words:
Catholics have no contention with public schools
or state schools as such. They are willing to ac

When Talmage's church was burned
in Brooklyn, among the first to call on

Roman Catholic priests. He and they
had worked together in a common cause,
in a fight against immorality and skep
ticism. In the same fight, in the holy
crusade for education, for morality, for
the spiritualizing of the race in this age
of materialism, Catholic and Protestant
can afford to sink all sectarian bitterness
and clasp hands.
Who Own the United States?
Thomas G. Shearman is a rich man, a
lawyer, ulid a member of the church left
by Ilenry Ward Beecher. Mr. Shear
man is also an enthusiastic single tax
man, and opposed to the absorption of
the land of the United States into a few
He has been looking into statistics to
find out who at present own this country,
lie finds, to begin, that the rich are un
doubtedly growing richer and the poor
poorer. Of the wealthy persons within
liis own knowledge, there are forty-five
individuals and twenty-five estates worth
"rom $130,000,000 to §20,000,000. These
ieventv represent an aggregate wealth
)f 52*700,000,000, or over $37,55(0,000
The figures show that at present one
ualf of the wealth of the United States
s owned by 40,000 persons. More than
wo-thirds of it all is owned by one-sev
ntieth of the population. The wealth
the country, evenly distributed, would
ive §1,000 per head to every man, wo
lan and child in the Union but one
v.-entieth of the population have got it
learly ail. It is probably not their fault
nore than that of false economic sys
em3 that causes riches to roll themselves
!i like this.
Pittsburg has sixty-seven millionaires,
Cleveland has sixty-three, while Boston
as two hundred. In three villages near
Tew York reside sixty persons whose
ggregate possessions foot up $500,000,
jJ. Four men in Chicago are worth
America i3 far richer than Great Brit
ain. The average annual income of the
hundred richest Englishmen is about
$450,000 the average annual income of
the hundred richest Americans is proba
bly §1,000,000. At the same time Mr.
Shearman finds that the average earn
ings of quite four-fifths of American
families do not reach $500 a year and
not a week passes that ^ien and mothers
and children do not starve to death in
this rich America.
Mr. Shearman concludes his paper:
Ths United States of America are practically
jvmed by less than 250,000 persons, constituting
ass than one in sixty of its adult male population.
'Within thirty years, the present methods of tax
on being continued, the United States of Amer
will be substantial^ owned by less than 50,000
ions, constituting leas than one in 600 of the

is plain that this cannot go on for
keep it every year, all over the country
—north, south, east, west. Gather all
your family around you, every one.
Give your children the best dinner you
can afford. Let not ouo word of scold
ing come from your lips, let not a chid
ing thought enter vour heart. Let the
young ones have a rare day of perfect
happiness. Let them at least believe
they have something to be thankful for.
Sorrow and disappointment will come
to chill their bright young souls soon
enough. Let them say for at least one I
whole day: 1 am happy I am glad I was
born. For the time will come when they
cannot say that
What is more, if any of your children,
your relatives or friends, are estranged
from you, if you have parted in auger
and they have wandered away from you,
alone and in pain, go out to them this
day and bring them back. Bid them to
your Thanksgiving feast, and forgive and
be forgiven, for you need it as much as
they. The true and only philosophy of
life, if one would be happy, prosperous
and beloved, is to live constantly at
peace with all mankind.
Again, if there are unloved, unmated
^nes in your midst, bachelors, single
women who dwell alone, widows and
widowers, those lonely souls who are not
i -st best to anybody, bid them to your
feast, too. Make them feel for one day
in the year that there is somebody who
takes a genuine interest in them.
Did you ever think what it is not to be
th st best to any human being to have
not a soul who cares more for you than for
anybody else on earth? If you never did,
think of it now, you who have homes and
families. Remember the solitary, those
who have nobody to go home to, men and
women both: those who, with hearts full
of kindly emotions, yet are doomed to
walk through life unloved. Is there not
an infinite sadness in it?
What have you to be thankful for, dis
contented, disappointed man or woman?
with anthems and prayers of thanksgiv
you have nothing else, yoi are to be
thankful for life itself. You have not
been so very happy in life that you feel
like giving thanks for it? Nevertheless
give tiianks. Consider what life is for.
It is struggle and strife mostly. Very
well. That is exactly what we want to
fie us for the lofty heritage of the human
soul. If we had no difficulties to wrestle
against, to develop the marvelous powers
of mind and body that lie latent within
us, we should be idiots and jelly fish.
Trouble means struggle, and struggle
means strength. See that you take it so.
Finally, if you believe in. the immor
tality of the soul, believe it to some
purpose. Remember always that you
are an immortal spirit, that nothing can
kill you, nothing can starve, hurt or
crush you. Whatever happens to you,
if you do your best, you will still be an
immortal spirit, developing a glorious
destiny, and nothing can alter that.
Therefore, no trouble or misfortune can
matter very much here, where nothing
is permanent but change.
If you have a trouble that you cannot
get rid of, don't go off alone and brood
over it. Ke&p yourself constantly busy
at some useful work. Help other people
all you can. Persistently keep bright
and jolly thoughts before your mind.
Carry this philosophy with you always,
and you can at length rise above all dif
ficulties, at length find out how to be
happy, though miserable.
A polite people, we Americans. Not
long since the wife of the Chinese min
ister in Washington, with a Chinese lady
friend, attempted to take a little fresh
air in the garden of the Chinese lega
tion building. They sat very quiet,
looking neither to the right nor left.
But in ten minutes a genuine mob had
gathered in front of the residence, and
was staring at the ladies. The throng
was not composed of the "lower class
es," either, but of the fashionable prom
enaders of Connecticut avenue. They
jostled each other #udely in their at
tempts to get a good view, and talked
loudly and coarsely about the women.
Some of their remarks were villainous.
Attendants came out of the legation
building and requested them to move on.
They would not. Not till a patrol wagon
and six policemen arrived to disperse
them did they budge an inch. Oh, yesl

Two projects are on foot to shorten the
time between Europe and America. One
is to build a raftway from Quebec to St.
Charles bay, at the eastern extremity of
Labrador. In St. Charles bay is a deep
harbor, as free frsm ice in winter as the
one at Halifax. From this far northern
point a line of swift steamers would
make regular trips to England. If the
plan be feasible, it will shorten the time
from Chicago to England two and three
fourths days. The other plan for rapid
ocean transit is to land passengers from
this side at Mil'ord Haven, on the west
coast of Wales, and then ship them by
rail to Liverpool or elsewhere. Milford
