THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, APRIL 29 1922. ,i,'" 7=': ii i i  -. _ tl t __ L. ....... itt] .Jl I . _ P IDJk.Oai lrl'yle. J i "%i ' I t ._.' ............... , .... 4. Rev. Garrett Pierse, of the faculty of St. Patrick's College, Maynooth, Ire., an editor on the "h'- ish Theological Quarterly," boldly as- serts that "the monoply of goods or unrestricted Capitalism" is one of the I three great monopot4es of history, the I' others being the "monomoply of TO-1 men or polygamy," and the "monopo- ly of Government or tyranny." All of them, traceable to he selfish element, the animal in man, "are illustrated in the hog with its feet in the trough," as Rev. Pierse puts it, according to the C .B. of C. V. Bureau. "Christ," he continues, "expressly supplied the remedy for one abuse He suggested a remedy for the sec- ' )nd. His principles and the reason He has given us point to a similar reme- dy for the thud similar abuse. It is not Socialism, wihch would mean to remedy an abuse by a similar abuse it wouht be , glorified bureaucracy with very human and frail officials. It is rather a distribution of the earth's goods, not by a mere limited Profit-sharing,. but by a full Proper- ty-sharing, or Partnership, which would give Capital its moderate due and would give all workers, mental and manual the returns that are the laroportionate fruit of their labors." Educated public opinion will undoubt- edly recognize the reasonableness oi this division. "It discountenances Mormonism, and sets the Mormon apart, says the Maynooth Father; "but it has not Yet reprobated Mor-i monism in earthly goods ,nor has it yet pilloried the millionaire." Yet, the latter has, as Rev. Pierse quite correctly contends, "by unduly absorbirlg the earth's goods inevitably lowered' the standard of the life and comfort of other men." Instead of the three great abuses of history, monop- oly in women ,in government, in goods ,the Irish theologian hopes to see the world gradually recognizing the three great Laws, the Law of Partnership in married life, the law of Partnership in Government, and the law of Partnership in Property. "This will help, he says, "to elimi- nate the present slaves. For we have not yet abolished slavery, only the name. We have salved our con- sciences by hypocritically changing names, from 'slave' to 'serf,' from 'serf' to 'servant.' And the 'servant' is with us still Yetthere was and is One who did not call His helpers ser- vants, but friends." " "Tliese statements, comments So- cial Justice, published by the Central Bureau of "the C. V., "seem radical; but it is only by such Christian radi- calism that 'we may hope to save so- ciety."

WOMEN EXPOSE LIE OF ILLITERACY OF LATIN-AMERICA Costa Rica Spends More for Edu- cation Than for National Defense (BY N. * W. C, HEWS $gNVtCl) Baltimore, April 24.--The persist- ent and carefully developed fabrica- tion about the "ignorance' 'of Latin- American countries was given a hard blow at the Pan-American conference of Women" during sectional meetings dealing with child welfare and educa- tion, hehl under the auspices of the National 'League of Women Voters last week. Among other facts which came to light and which caused no little sur- prise to delegates who had been prone to accept gratuitous statements as truths were these: \\;Costa Rica spends more money for education than for national defense or for any 6ne other department.

CARDINAL DOUGHERTY TELLS OF ITALIAN K. OF C. WEL,ARE WORK Cardinal Dougherty of Philadelphia in a letter published in the May is- sueof Columbia, the Knights of Co- lumbus nmgazine, explains the condi- tions in Italy which have made it nec- essary and appropriate'for the K. of C. to pledge themselves to carry out welfare work there entailing an ex- )enditure of $1,000,000. The Cardinal, who is one of the two highest ranking members of the American Hierarchy, and who recently returned from the consistory that elected Pope Plus XI, declares that it is at "the behest of the Holy See" that the welfare work is undertaken, adding that American money has financed revilers of the Catholic Church in Italy and seducers of children. "It is fitting that their propaganda be offset with funds con- tributed by American Catholics. By undertaking such a work, the Knights of Columbus will save many to Holy Church an d solace the heart of our Holy Father," the Cardinal adds. His letter, addressed to Joim B. Kennedy, the editor of Columbia, fol- lows i "Acceding to your request that I give "Columbia" a statement of the need for welfare work in Rome and other parts of Italy, according to the behest of the Holy See, I beg to set before your readers the followinf con- siderations. "It is well known  that Italy par- ticflarly in certain districts is far from being a wealthy country. One in- dication of her poverty is the fact that many of her children have been obliged to emigrate, as many Irish were forced by want to leave their ow country and seek a livelihood in foreign lands. Italy has been almost crushed by the burden of the World War; and she will not be on her feet again for many years to come. "Taking advantage of her poverty, various Protestant sects of the Unit- ed States have founded on her soil in- stitutions styled educational or char- itable, whereas they are instruments for the perversion of Italians. These roselytizers have established them- ;elves in Rdme, where they opened settlement houses as a lure for Ital- ians to barter their birthright of the faith for temporal gain. "They have gone so far as to plan the erection of a structure overlook- ing the Cathedral of St. Peter, the Vatican, and the whole city of Rome. In their hatred of the Papacy, they have fraternized with the infamous Nathan, followers of the apostate monk, Girdano Bruno, and publishers of scurrilous literature against the Holy Father and the Catholic Church. These revilers of our Holy Ieligion, "When you go with God, all the way is wonder," May Doney says in her little volume of that name, which shows how close she has been to him.' In the Tablet's Literary Notes of a few weeks ago W. H. K. spoke of the writers who had written out of their own experiences with results that had brought them renown. Experience was not always necessary for, he cited de- scriptions, nmrvellous descriptions'of bAttle. that had been written by those who had never witnesged one. Byron and Burns wrote out of their common experiences, but does one have to wallow in the mire in order to write? For some forms of writing one must have, andknow the  experi- ence. Mystical writing could not be even imagined by flmse who dwelt so near the earth. It is the privilege of those rare souls who have dwelt so near God that their writings have been colored by the experience. "The Way of Wonder" is a sample and so spiritual is it in tone, so rare is the soul that dwells on the heights, she sees in nature the expression of God. In "My Little Hills." "Like Him who loved best, the calm shoulders lean Upon the breast of God," and ia another poem entitled "News," she tells us The tulips are kissing God, I can tell it by their faces As they reach in their quiet places, Straight up from soil and sod; Do they know it? or in a dream Does their breath kiss th breath su- preme. Such expressions call forth a feel- ing introduction from Sir Arthu Quiller-Couch, who says: "I have one main reason, and two minor and par- !ticular, for wishing lovers of poetry to read this book, nay main reason (which should suffice) being that I i believe it to be packed with the true stuff of poetry. Miss Doney writes poetry. .When !one comes to qualify that poetry, to name its note, the first word for it is l"mystical;" as to me it seems impos- :sible to overlook her kinship of spirit with the seventeenth-century mys- tics, Crashaw, Vaughar b Treheru. Of these, and of Miss Doney, the detract- or will say they harp much on one string; the believer that each is pos- sessed of his "own message." So of these pages the burthen is of woman's devotion to man, honor of him, reverence for the God she dis- covers in Him. It ]nay seem an eccen- tric faith in these days; but I no more think it ex(!essive than I deem man's honour of woman "excessive or the reverence for the goddess in her." He stresses her Celtfc note also and believing her poetry to be rue Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch recommends it unqualifiedly to all and particularly to the readers in the West Country,. C. e POITIERS HONORS PRELATE. (liy N, C. W. C, NEWS SERVICE) Paris, April 13.The municipal council of Poitiers has decided to give" the name of Msgr. Augouard to the street on which that prelate resided during his sojourn in France, and on which he recently died. Msgr. Augouard was for many years Vicar Apostolic Of French Congo. SISTER MARY CLARE DIES AFTER SPENDING 66 YEARS IN RELIGION (BE i. g, 'if. , MEW O|ltYtCE) Boston, April 22.--Sixty-six years of religious life were brought to an end here with the death of Sister Mary Clare of the Academy of the' Assumption, Wellesley, at the age of eighty-three. Sister Mary Clare was one of the poneer members of the community and in 1860 was a mem- ber of a group of Sisters of ChariJy who volunteered to care for a large number,of Asiastics who had reach- ed Halifax aboard a steamship in- fested with cholera.
