FRIDAY, ADO. 10, 1894 druukards are among the Catholics. The American saloon is the vile den of in temperance. It is laden with blasphemy and sensuality. Tempations are there created which bring men to drink. I make no reference to the personal charac ters of saloon-keepers, but the business is bad. It is the enemy of good and the country. Let the day soon come when we shall not see the name of a Catholic above the portals of a saloon. Those in the saloon trafic should seek a more worthy calling." Editorial Ink Drops. In the August Forum John Brooks Leavltt has a forcible article on "The degredation of our citizenship." He does not mince matters, but strikes right out from the shoulder. Here is a suggestive paragraph from his article : "We are confronted by the fact, if tbe situation in New York la any criterion, that the admlnstration of our political affairs Is largely in the hands of the criminal classes. By criminal classes is meant the classes which habitually break the law, not merely thieves, pros tttudes, gamblers and rogues of every hue, but men who buy or sell office, legislation, official action, or protection The police onicial who sells police pro tection to a thief, a prostitute, or a gambler, Is a criminal. Will any one dare to maintain that the "reputable citizen" who purchases a United States senatorship, or a statute, or the privilege of storing bis goods upon tbe sidewalk In defiance of the rights of his fellow citizens and in plain breach of the law, is not a criminal? Into such hands as these has the control of our country mainly passed. The making of our laws Is the business of a partnership between the men in office who sell, and the men out ot office who buy, legisla tion. ine execution or our laws, or '' rather their non-execution, is also partnersnip Dusiness oetween the men In office who sell, and the men out of office who buy, indulgences.". , The noble position taken by Monseig neur Satolli on the temperance question is being applauded by people of all de nominations throughout the land. Arch. bishop Ireland, who stands high in tbe councils of the Roman Catholic church recently delivered a burning temperance address In which he upheld Monselgneur Satolll's attitude and declared that the church which will not come out for temperance is an odious excrescence on the soil. lie went on : "lam not looking for the millennium but we can reduce the number of drinking men so that it r"l be fr.i uccrted saying that no It was a matter for congratulation that the collision at Stepney on the Berkshire division, last week, did not result more seriously.
