Business and Charity at St. Viacents St. Vincents Infirnmry, directed by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, has never closed its doors to any dc- selwing charitable case. The spirit of these Sisters is founded on charity i'self, and they couhl not anti wouhi not work out their selfsacrificing lives, if charity in its many forms and methods did not enter into their daily avocation. It is veritahly a part of their duty to minister to the poor and the needy, and this they have ever clone, wheresoever they have taken unto themselves the care of the sick, the maimed and the dying. It is of course, a self-evident fact that an institution such as the Sster of Cimrity have built up at St. Vin- cents on Capitol Hill, unendowed, could not attain its present remark- ab;e success without the. paying pat- ronage of the lmblic and the thrifty financ}:d ma..:hrement of the Sister,.

C. W. C. News Service) New York. March 3.--It was Car- dinal O'Connell of Boston who called llilaire l:lelloc, English historian and essayist, "one of the greate:t qv minds in Catholicism." Mr. Belloe i:: now m America and lms begun his lecture tour which will include visits to Cincinnati, C, hicago, Toronto, and other cities. Mr. Belloc ah'eady has spoken laefore a Boston audiencc and is now back in New York City, where ie will give a few more lectures. Hi:; subject is "Civilization's Peril." Modern Trend to t)oub! The English essayist says that the greate.t peril to civilization is "the modernistic trend to doubt accepted .  , " rehgmus phflo.'ophtes and dogmas. He adds th'xt abroad "there is a tend- eney to discard certain of the'e dog- mas, the critics buihling up new dog- mas in tlleir stead." Mr. I Ielloc declares he sees ill Eu- rope. as he sees here, a growth of dis- content on the part of modern, ni- hilistic thinkers and a tendency to dis- card religious philosophies as un- provable. This he considered destruc- tive to civilization, "l accept religion because [ know t," he said. "I could swear to the longitude mad latitude of New York, though I have never used a sextant myself, l do this on the word of men who have--numerous men. It is the stone 'ith l'eligion. It is the observations of a large numher of men who have gone before. Civiliza- tion, rests on faith in a religious plfiil- osophy. But scepticism leads only to chaos." Not a Criticism Judge Otto A. Rosalsky, who re- centl. made an attack on Mr. Bclloc, sa)ing,,; the lecturer should be deport- ed because of his attacks on Jews, was replied to by the historian in these words: If Judge Rosalsky trod read my essays on Judiasm he wouldii't have made the suggestion.

Bourke Cockran, United States Congresmnan from the Sixteenth New York district and long celebrated as America's most gifted orator, removes from public life one of the best known Catho!ics in the United States. When stricken by apoplexy last Thursday, Congressman Cockran was engaged in the preparation of an address,to'be delivered before the St. Paul:s':?ish Council of tile National Council of Catolic Men oa th6ques- tion of Cat:h01i Education. It was exl)ectedi0,';Me"a .notable coutribution to patriotic-discussion of the most importmtt issue that confronts Catho- lics in this country today. Mr. Cock- ran was scheduled to speak beye the Council on last Friday lalgh .t  An Exemplary Calholic Not alone was Congressman Cock- ran regarded as one of the foremost figures m uong the nation's men in public life, hut bis exemplary prac- tice of his religion made him a model fro" tllomands of Catholics who were members of the sevei'al parishes to which he belonged during his seven terms as United States Congressman. He seldom missed morning Mass and he was practically a daily communi: cant. Oftentimes, when he was at- tending Mass and the priest was without a server he took upon him- self the duties of an altqr boy. Birtiiday Celebration Congressman Cockran had made a powerful speech in the House against] the Administration's furm credit leg- 1 islation the afternoon before he died.[ It was his sixty-ninth birthday and in the evening he and Mrs. Cockran had as guests at dinner Mr. and Mrs. Saulsbury Fieht. Mr. Field also cele- brating his birthday. Congressman Co('kran was apparenily in his usual good healtli und in fine spirits. About 1 a.m. he complained of feeling ill and two lfiLvsicians were summone(I, wire remained with him throughout the night. He failed to rally from the initial stroke, which took the form of a severe pain over the eyes. In the morning his condi- tion was not nnl)roved and the Rcv. Edward L. Buckey, pastor of St. Mat- thew's church, was summoned and ad- ministered the last rites of the Church. Mr. Cockran (lied within an hour. Physicians - declared that a brain henmm'hage preceded death. Horn in h'ehmd Congressman Cockran was born in County Slig, Ireland. in 1854. There from Irish priests he received his training as an altar boy and drank deep of the love of the things of God and of Itoly Mother Church, retaining his devotion throughout his life. He received his early education in h'e- land and France, and, coming to the United State.,: in 1871. im took up the duties of a school teacher, serving first in a private academy and sub- sequently becoming principal of a public school in Westchester County, New York. He was admitted to the bar in 1876 and ahnost immediately became a foremost figure in the po- litical arena, where his powers of ora- tory made him conspicuous. He made a noteworthy speech at the Demo- :ratic National Convention of 1884 'rod two ),ears later was elecled to the t=tieth Congress. Later he served erms in the Fifty-second, Fifty-third Fift an( Congresses. tte refused to become a candidate in 1909 after serving his term in the Fifty-ninth Congre:s, but after practicing law until 1920 was nominated and elected to the Sixty- seventh Congress. Independence in Politics Although then for many years a prominent figure in I)emocratic Par- ty, Mr,,.._Cockran showed his disposi- fib!crY;be swayed hy mere party (ion Considerations when he advocated the gold standm'd and campaigned for late President McF.inley in 1896. He returned to the Democratic party in 1900 and camlmigned for Mr. Bryan an the issue of,nti-imperalism. His last gFeat speech before -t national party convention was that in San i'f:ffdisco in 1920 when he placed in nomination Governor Alfrc<l E. Snith of New York for President. Mr. Cock- ran's speech brought thousands of delegates to their feet cheering wild- ly and was the occasion of one of the most tumu'.tous sccne of the 2iven- tiou. Universi|y I)cgrecs Mr. Cockran w-u given honorary degrees of Doctor of Laws by St Francis Xavier College of New York land Georgetown University of Wash- ing%n. He was a member of the [Catholic Club of New York and was for many years m the forefront of the atlvoca!es of complete independence ['or Ireland. 'l'ributes By Colleagues News of Mr. Cockran's death came as a profound shock to the National Capitol, where few men in public life were better known or more a(huired l for tim independence aud vigor of l their views on public questions. Rep- resentative Mondell, the Rcpul)lican floor leader, characterized him its "tile greatest orator of his time." and said thqt "his ,sleeches brought memories of Burke mid Pitt. in England, and of our Webster and Clay." Congress- man Cannon declared "he was the nioYt graceful and finished orator that had come to C, ongress in many years" and high tributes to his cour- age, ahility and honesty were paid hy l)emocratic House Leader Garrett. of 'Femmssee, and Representative Vol- stead, creator of tim law that bears his name and which had frequently been assailed by Mr. Cockran. Voistead's Praise "1 had a real respect fox" Mr. Cock- raa's ability," said Volste4d. "We did not agree on some things, but we were good friends." Mr. Cockran's last public speech was given with all his usual fire and dash. He gave the ltouse a word pic- ture of attempts he said had been made for several hundred years to mq}rove conditions by measures simi- Iar to the farm. credits', bill and de- clared tiey had always proved disas- Lrous. Recent Speeches Notable among the recent speeches of Mr. Cockran which attracbed wide attention was that in which he flayed the murderers of Mer Rouge and in which he attacked the prohibition laws, which he predicted would never be enforced. On this.clatter question he had a notable tilt with William Jennings Bryan, in the Democratic National Convention of 1920 in San Francisco.

News Service) New York, March 7.--Archbishop Fumasoni-Biondi, the new Apostolic Delegate to the United States, who arrived here Friday from Italy on the steamship Taormim of the Italian line, was tendered a warm and fit- ting welcome by the clergy and laity of the Archdiocese of New York. He sailed from Naples on February 16, accompanied by his Secretary, Msgr. Paolo Marella,, Met at Quarantine The Taormina was met at Quaran- tine by a revenue cutter carrying Msgr. Aluigi Cossio, who has been temporarily in charge of the Apostolic Delegation at Washington, the Very Rev. Joseph P. Dineen, Chancellor of the Archdiocese of New York; and the Rev. Dr. Stephen J. Donahue, Sec- retary to Archbishop Hayes. When tile Taormina docked the foot of West 57th street about two o'clock, tlle new Delegate was greeted by Archbishop Hayes and Auxiliary Bishop John J. Dunn of New York; Bishop Joseph H. Conner of Ogdenburg; Bishop Thomas J. Walsh of Trenton; Bishop-elect Daniel J. Curley of Syracuse; Msgr. Michael J. Lavelle: rector of St. Pat- tick's  Cathedral; Msgr. George War- ing, vicar general of the Army anti Navy Chaplains in the United States, together with many other members Of the Catholic clergy and laity.

A detachment of uniform- ed policemen aud detectives of the bomb squad hnder the command of Inspector James Bolan, preceded by motorcycle policemen, escorted the  Delegate to the home of Archbishop Hayes. Delegate's Statement In a statement issued just after he landed the Delegate said: , "I consider it a great privilege to have been abld to come and witness with my own eyes this great country anti people, whom I have long since learned to admire at a distance, I am sure that my residence here will be- come one of the mot cherished peri- ods of my life. The American peo- pie have won the esteem and admira- tion of the world on account of their love for liberty without a diminution of their respect for lawfully consti- tuted authority. And in recent years their generosity has become a theme of universal praise. "Having been in the East Indies as Papal Delegate during the Great War, 1 had myself the chance to admire the generosity with which those poor Missions as those of other countries, received from their American friends, the help they needed hadly. The no- ble sentiments by which the Ameri- can people are inspired find an echo in my heart, and I hope to be woVthy of their esteem and love." Reception in Ills'Honor Archbishop Fumasoni-Biondi re- mained in New York until Monday, when he left for Washington to as- sume his new duties. While he was here a nmnber of Tecepti}ns were given in his honor, one of wlfieh was a public affair and consisted of a for- real welcole at St. Patrick's Cathe- dral Saturday afternoon.
