A well-known editors, Os Nation, and Herbert B. Swope World, two real warriors The first reaction of a Catholicto Mr. Mar- shalls letter is one of anger andastomshment." Honest anger at this attempt put him on trial, for the challenge to Mr. Smith is a challenge to all Catholics of this country. Astonishment at the attitude of a seemingly intelligent man, an attitude c mmon among ignorant backwoods- men, but not usually found among men who pretend an elementary education, Now it is not to he inferred that Mr. Marshall has been deprived of an education, but rather his reading and study have failed to do mpre than buttress his own original, prejudices In- formation is usually,, thought to bring about'a broader view of men and institutions, to culti- vate a sense of respect for the convictions of our fellowmen and to develop a civilized confid- ence in the honesty of these convictions. With this Statement before us, the conclusion is naturally evident Mr. Marshall is not enti- tled to a reply. Insinuations are insults and the best way to deal with them is to ignore them, for no man is endowed with the right to question another when the question itself attempts to impeach his honor. In this case Mr. Marshall directly challenges Governor Smith's loyalty to the country he serves in so distinguished a man= her/ Mr. Smith is not suspected of treason, but popularly proposed for the highest honor in the gift of the American people, therefore, his loyalty is at least in the eyes of the people of the State of New York and many o{hers above the richest section the richest country in the world, leaving desolation and despair. We, of the South are again going through the same commercial, agricultural and financial up- heaval that our fathers before us saw, and many of us are again exposed beggary by the same destructive natural agent that has done more damage to the people of the South than three or more civiLwars. At the same time, our national organs have us edified with pictures of the vast engineering feats performed by a paternal government for the benefit of arid countries about us. We have been told in fulsome phrases of the deserts made gardens by the power of controlled water, all of which is due to the genius of our poeple ceasing unrest, which the great men of every even if it is against religion, age are trying to calm, while others are always hot for the persecutor.

Col- andthe prosperous largess of our Government. lins for The Woman's Home Companiqn, finds American money has been literally burned that at least 100,000 Protestantchurc build- up in a thousand causes of war and peace. We ings are "useless and parasitic," and recom- have all been pledged and bonded for the wel- fare of a half dozen projects and our taxes are paying interest on debts incurred over half the mends that they be abandoned. - The writer, who is a Protestant, admits that' the Catholic Church is "a thing apart." seHerr- goes on to say that "it performs so many ices for its people which the Protestant church does not attempt that it cannot be judged by the same standards. I dare say even its humblest edifice would be seriously and sincerely his- sed." All of this makes interesting reading to us earth for the welfare of every kind of marl and country. So be it, if we can do so and are @illing to do so, more credit and more honor to us. But while all this goes on the Garden of the North American Continent has become a morass through incompetence and We might say crim- i 4al neglect, at least that is what a great many think of it.
