EWT0WH. COSH.. 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
