CONCLUDING LECTURE
BY FATHER SUTTON
The Fcman Catholic Church Declared
to Be the True Church of
Christ.
There wasal.rge attendance at St.
Monica's church last evening to listen to
the last of the series of Interesting leo
tures which have been given by Kev, Fr.
Sutton for the past two weeks. The sub-
ct was a most interesting one, "Infalli
bility."
S e claim the Catholic church is the in
fallible teacher of divine revelation. An
nfallible church cannot fall into error.
Secondly: That Christ established an in
fallible church, and that church which
hrist established is the Roman Catholic
church, consequently the Roman Catholic
church cannot fail into error, or teach
tlsehood. The main point is. Did
hrist establish a church that was infalli
ble and is that church he established the
toman Catholic church? if 1 can make
this clear you mast admit it Is an infall
ible guide, and cannot fall into error.
II Christ has established sucn an lniaui-
ble teacher and if that church is a Catho
lic Cburch.she is infallible, it follows nec
essarily, so that those people who belong
to a religious denomination, which does
not claim to be infallible. that they are not
belonging to the church appointed by
Christ aud cannot be saved outside of that
church which lie has left to bring us to
salvation. If Christ has left an Infallible
church to be our guide it follows whatever
these teachings are must be the true ones.
I Christ gave us an infallible guide, it is
to tell us. If lie has established such a
guide and church it is our duty to belong
to it and our salvation depends upon it.
He has said: "He who despiseth you des-
iseth me." We cannot hope to be in the
way of salvation when we are despising
iod. Christ's church then cannot Jail lato
error, once the church oi tenst it wouia
be always His church, and always teach
the same truth, (iod brought the people
to religious truth by a teacher, by Instruc
tion and authorative way. The institu
tion of which we rind lie established in
society, iu organizing, giving it power and
authority to teach things In His came.
Is there any evidence in Holy Scripture
that he left such an Institution to settle
our disputes. Has he done so'.' If we
an find evidence we must submit to it.
There is nothing more evident that Christ
did establish Just such a society and cm-
power that visible society to go out and
each with authority, and that it would
not fall Into error. Christ cave the fol-
wing charter to them: "As the Father
sent me, so I send yon. All things what
soever 1 heard from the Father I have
made known to you, 1 have instructed
vou, now go and do my work, I have Sm
arted knowledge to you, and you are fit
or the otlice, fit for the duties imposed
upon you. ItO ye into the whole world
and preach the Gospel to every creature.
It is not to be bounded by any limits, go
unto all nations, lie who hears you, hears
me. Uethat tjeiieveth snail oe saved, ne
hat btdieveth not, shall he damned. Lo,
I am with yon unto the end. 1 am with
ou all days even unto the consummation
of the world. The gates of hell shall not
irevail against my church. I will send
the Holy Ghost the spirit of truth who
will bring to your recollection all things
whatsoever 1 told yon, and who will abide
with vou forever. ' in conclusion he re
ferred to the words of our Ixird to l'etef.
when he made him the visible head of His
church, and also was the first Pope of the
Catholic church, of which 203 have suc
ceeded him.

Sentiment Was for Immediate Return

$1,300,000."
Lowell, Mass , June 21. The Textile
Council this afternoon declared the great
strike in the Lowell mills at an end. Every
union atliiliated with the council was rep
resented aud the vote was unanimous.
Mule spinners and loom fixers were in
cluded in this vote despite statements that
they would oppose a return to work.
There was no decision. The situation
was discussed carefully and with no sug
gestion of excitement. ' The vote showed
every delegation favorable to a return to
work and the sentiment was that the vote
take Immediate effect.
When asked for a statement, l'resident
Conroy smilingly said,
"We now worship at the altar of de
feat, but later we shall rise again and con
quor." The strike began March 30 and involv
ed about 17,000 operatives. The mills
were shut down until June 1, when the
agents opened the gates and the maiority
of the operatives went back to work.
I he strike has cost In wagea about
$i,;!oo,ooo,
It is understood that the agents will
take back all the old help they have room
for, and will make no discrimination
against the leaders of the strike move
ment. The high prices of cotton precluded any
hope ot success of the strikers' campaign
for a ten per cent, increase.
Lowell, June 22. A large number of
the strikers returned to work today in the
cotton mills, but many leaders of the
strike were told they would be sent for
when wanted. President Conroy of the
textile council was one of these. Michael
Dugan, treasurer of the council, and Mrs.
Mary Fratus, the speaker, were others.
The mill men say there is no intent'on of
discriminating but w here non-union help
was secured sines the nates reopened and
they have proved skillful enough, they do
not intend to discharge them. "The mills
elaim to be re-employing old men as fast
as possible.

An Explanation From J. Sasai,
To the Editor of the Barre Daily Times:
As, last Saturday on the charge of breach
of peace 1 was lined $12 I like to explain
the cause of the fact. Being working for
Ri.zl Bros, at the pay day S. Rizzi, one
of the firm, give me my check and as I
thought that the ray of $3.00 was not
right having been working for other
firms for more than that. Mr.
Rb.zi did not allow me any more,
telling me that another firm stated that I
was not worth more. Just as soon I find
out that the statement affirmed by Rizzl
was untrue 1 weut in his office telling him
about It. He try to kick me out and on
my self defense I did oppose him. He
shut the office door trying to cut in my
band. I was arrested and . fined but
the committee of the grauite cut
ters union, this morning- flgtired
up my work and I got a check for the bal
ance due at 43o per hoar.
This prove that I was right on my
prices asked, and that Mr. Rizzi was on
the wrong side. I wish that will be use
ful for the future to some people.

BEFORE THE
OPEN DOOR
Baccalaureate Sermon to
Goddard, 1901
BY REV. EFFIE K. H. JONES
Opportunities Arc Hany Doors Which
Await Us All to
Enter.
A cold, dark rainy morning dawned on
class Sunday at Goddard seminary. The
rain had been tailing continually during
the night and continued at intervals
throughout the day. However, de.spite
the rain, the "hustling" juniors were up
bright and early and with their ever
green, ferns, dowers and school colors,
beautifully decked out the pulpit of the
I niyersalist church, where the baccalau
reate sermon was delivered before the
eighteen members of the graduating class
by Kev. hthe K. M. Jones, pastor of the
church, at 10:30 a. m.
Four juniors, Mark Berry,
Mark
Mr.
seated
Carpenter, Dean Seaver and
Ilatlin acted as ushers and
the large congregation which filled every
seat with the exception of those reserved
in front for the senior and junior classes
and the teachers. The junior class march
ed in first, led by v sher Mark Carpenter,
and took seats at the right of the center
aisle.
The faculty then marched in and were
seated on the left, and lastly the senior
class who were seated In front of the
teachers. The order of the service w as
as follows: Organ voluntary, Mrs. T. L.
Snow; anthem, "Onward Christian Sol
diers," by the choir of the Church of the
Messiah of Montpelier; invocation; re
sponsive reading; anthem,' "Rock of
Ages;" Scripture reading; prayer; re
sponse; solo, "Jesus, Lover of my Soul,"
by Mark Davis; sermon, Rev. Eilie K. M.
Jones; anthem, "Thy Hallowed Pres
ence;" hymn; benediction: postlude.
The singing by the choir was very
much enjoyed, and the solo by Mark Da
vis, '03, was nicely rendered. Mrs. Jones
delivered a very profound and impressive
sermon, her tet being Revelations,
"Behold, 1 have set before thee
an open door and no man can shut it."
She said in substance: "Our success de
pends wholly upon our choice of entering
or choosing this door. What Is success?
The meaning varies with the individual.
To one it means great social standing,
while to another it nieaus the plaudits of
the world.
Opportunities are many doors which
await us all along our way and there is an
old saying that opportunity knocks once at
every man's door.
Yesterday's opportunities are indeed
gone but today's are with us and it de
pends upon us alone how many of these
we grasp. Members of the Senior class
your are placed this day before open doors
that lie ia the way of useful service. The
duties of manhood and womanhood are
never placed upon little children. There
is always a time for preparation. You
have ben helped by the love and guidance
of fond parents aud the advice of friends
and teachers and are thus better fitted to
grasp the opportunities of mature years.
The world's task must be performed by
the common people. It needs Intellectual,
cultured men and women. The world
waits for you to enter into these tasks and
may you have zeal, faithfulness and con
fidence in the love of (iod to aid you. May
Christian love abound in you aud bring
forth fruits of eternal life.
