Rome, May 29.--In ecclesiastical Rome this has been Irish Week. It began at St. Peter's on Sunday with the beatification of Ven. Oliver Plunket, the Irish martyr, and finishes Saturday with closing ceremonies of the triduum of thanksgiv- ing at the Irish College Church, where cardinals have been celebrating 'early Mass and pontificating at solemn high Mass and giving benediction each day. Every intervening day has been filled with ecclesiastical functions or banquets ,etc. One of the two outstanding days of the week was Monday, when Cardinal Logue, bishops, clerical and lay visit- farewell audience by Pope Benedict last Wednesday. He presented M. and Madame de Laroche Francis. He de- parted for South Italy on his way home.--Wood. LONDON CABLE. (N. C. W. C. Special Cable.) London, May 31.--Msgr.

The second big day was Wednes- day, when the Pope received in audi- ence the Irish visitors and Irish resi- dents. Four hundred were present. The Bishop of Raphoe read an ad- dress of thanks to the Pope, who re- plied in an allocution which went to the hearts of all. His Holiness spoke of the happiness it gave him to be God's instx-dment in raising Oliver Plunket t.o the honors of the Altar, and of the certainty that the newly Bless&l will intercede powerfully in heaven for his own people. His" Holi- ness said: "For is not the present moment one in which Ireland is most in need of help from on high that she may realize her legitimate desires without, however, neglecting any part vf her duties?" As the Queen of vir- tues, charity helps in the natural or- der first those nearest; so surely Blessed Plunket's irltercession will be first for his own people, the Pop said. The Holy Father concluded by blessing Cardinal Logue and all pres- ent and all the Irish people. He was cheered enthusiastically as he left the Consistorial Hall. In connection with the beatification of Archbishop Plunket on Sunday, there was a regrettable incident, re- garding which something must be said, as it is now of general kfiowl- edge. It is customary for tim Mass of the newly blessed at the morning ceremony to be pontificated by a bishop canon of the Vatican. An un- founded laamor got abroad that, in the case of Venerable Oliver Plunket, the turn would fall to Bishop Algernon Chm'les Stanley, Canon of St. Peter's, who is an Englishman and a convert from the Anglican Church. Cardinal Logue wrote t'o Cardinal Merry del Vat, Archpriest of St. Pc- tells, on the subject. In point of fact, it was not Bishop Stanley, but Canon Pietropaoli that was to celebrate the Mass; hence there was no need of Cardinal Logue's letter. The whole thing was a misunderstanding. Simultaneously with this incident, however, two anonymous letter wc.: received; one by Cardinal Merry. del Val, and one by Bishop Stanley. These were of an insolent nature, that to Bishop Stanley, in particular, being highly insulting and in threatening tones. That such letters should have been sent to dignitaries of the Churchone of them a cardinal--caused most se- rious displeasure at the Vatican. There has been afloat a rmnor that Balfour's audience with the Pope was concelmed with Irish politics. This is without foundation in fact. Balfour's audience originated in recognition of the fact that it would be natural that a distinguished statesman, while in Rome, should ee the Pope. Balfour was here for the meeting of the League of Nations, in which Pope Benedict takes keen interest; and His Holiness was as pleased to see Bal- four to learn of the prospects and workings of the League, as Balfour was to be received. The General Chapter of the Capu- chin Order has elected Very Re*. J)seph Antony of St. John i'n Persi- cote, Minlster-C-eneral of the Order. Very ReD. Antonine Wilmer, of Brooklyn, formerly Provincial of New York. was appointed Definitor-Gen- .eral for the English-speaking com- munities of the Order. His jurisdic- tion includes two provinces in the United States as well as one province each in England and Ireland. Besides' Father Antonlne, three Ca- puchins from the United States are attending the conference ,here. They are Very ReDs. Benedict Mueller of Brooklyn and Ignatius Weissbruch and Benedict Wich of Pittsburgh. Cardinal Granite di Belmonte ha" been elected P1;otector of the Augus- tinian Order. succeeding Cardinal Filippo Giustlni, wh died a few weeks ago. Cardinal O'Connell was received in Westminster Cathedral and at St Margaret Church, Westminster.- Watts. PARIS CABLE. (N. C. W. C. Special Cable.) Paris, May 30.--Mass for the A.merican dead was celebrated today at St. Joseph Church, Paris, Msgr. Odelin, Vicar-Genera! of Paris, pre- siding. The selwice was arranged by the National Catholic Welfare Coun- cil, with the Knights of Columbus participating. Cardina Lucon has ordered that public prayers for the American dead be offered up in the seven hundred parishes of his Diocese of Rheims. The; Bishop of Soissons, Msgr. Pechenard, almost seventy-eight years of age, died suddenly on Thursday of heart disease. His Lordship had just promised to conduct exercises on Memorial Day at'the American Ceme- tery at IXoissy. He had been for ten years lctor of the Catholic Institute, Paris. He shared the- perils of life in Soissons with the troops during the war, and received a high citation. He was recently described in the "Book of Martyrdom of Soissous." In honor of Joan of Arc, there was today in the streets of Paris a great procession, which was postponed fif- teen days ago on account of strikes. Eighty thousand persons followed with th(,. flags and banners of the pa- triotic leagues, the National Union of Combatants, the school boys of the Catholic patronage, and the students of the public Catholic universities. The statue of the popular saint wa ovevhelmed with flowers, among which were three hundred beautiful wreaths.--Massiani. ROME CABLE. (N. C. W. C. Special Cable.) Rome, June 7.--Pope Benedict, on Pentecost Day, issued an important encyclical on Christian Reconciliation. The document, which expresses the hope that. through Christian recon- ciliation of the people, the abnonal conditions of the times may be brought to an end, is considered here to have opened the door of good will to Italy end the entire world, and is regarded as a masterly stroke in the public coutinuation of the construc- tive tlmught, first expressed by the Pontiff in the encyclical, "Love One Another," of November 1, 1914, and which has been continually developed' in utterances of the Holy See during the war and since the armistice. In m'ging the expression of Chris- tian charity through the pardon of enemies and the succor of the afflicted so that the nations recently at war may live in amity, the Pope takes occasion to give a practical example of the duty he urges by declaring that he "forgives those who, during the war, distorted his intentions and tar- nished his work." Politically, the document is of great significance because in it the Pope de- clares his intention of mitigating the orders "justly laid down by our pre- decessors," excluding visits of Catho- lic heads of States to the King f Italy in Rome, which was proclaimed by Plus IX in 1870. The document declares that, while this mitigation" is called for by the changed circum stances of times, and in recognition of the value of the interchange of visits of heads of tates tending to the ob- jects which the Pope has in mind in regard to the settlement of world con- ditions, there is no relinquishment of the just claims of the Vatican. In fact, the document repeats text-, ually the emphatic protest, which the present Pontiff, following the exam- ple of Plus IX, Leo XIII; end Pips X, made against the abnormal conditions of the Holy See, When be was raised to the Chair of Peter. It expresses the hope that, together with the Chrigtian conciliation of the pepple, the comtitions will be bx)ught to an For Our Teaching Corps (Cotinued From Page 5) DIOCESAN SCHOOL BOARD, H. A.

BISHOP CALLS MEETING. Upon receipt and consideration of the report submitted by the Diocesan SUGAR FROM SAWDUST. A Pittsburgh chemist named 'Hyde is said to have discovered a practical way to make high-grade sugar out of sawdwust and at a cost of three cents a pound. Chemists have long known that sugar can be made from saw- dust, but .thus far it has been only a laboratory experiment, the cost be- ing too great. Possibly at present high prices it might be a commercial Success. The daily blessings of life ought to be constant reminders of Him from whom cometh down every good gift.

Bishop Morris addressed the meeting and presented the necessity of action by those interested in bhe education of the children, which to him meant every priest in the diocese, and he besought their active cooperation with federal and state boards of education in so far as their enactments and regulations constitutionally carried with them and guaranteed an educa- tional standard eifective of efficiency and progress in all the schools of the Nation and the State.

The Right Reverend John B. Morris, D. D., addressed the meeting survey- ing the educational field in the State of Arkansas, particularly in regard to parochial schools, in light of recent and contemplated enactments and de- mands to be made upon our teaching corps. His Lordship suggested the formation and maintenance of a Diocesan Normal School to meet, in advance, the requirements of the future. This he left in the hands of the priests as a committee, suggesting the election of a chairman to preside over the discussion. The Yery Reverend Wm. J. Carroll, of Hot Springs, was elected by acclamation to this place. The Reverend George H. McDermott was appointed Secretary of the meeting. The Very Reverend Chairman in a few words presented the object of ihe meeting to the assembled clergy, and after an intimate discussion of the question it was resolved: 1. That the Diocesan Normal School, as outlined by the Diocesan Normal School Board in its report to the Right Reverend Bishop, is hereby estab- lished. 2. That the repo of the Diocesan Normal School Finance Committee in regard to the cost of the Noaaal School be accepted. 3. That the method of collecting sum of money be not the raising of a productive fund to cover all annual expenses, but that a collection be taken up by each pastor accordin., to his own discretion, at the rate of two dollars per family per annum The meeting then adjourned.

He felt that their keen interest and ready cooperation in affairs so pertinent to the welfare of the diocese and its living issues, presaged great success in this educational movement, which is near and dear to his heart, as he knew it was to the 'heart of every priest and person in the diocese of Little Rock. He exhorted them to go forth, and blessed their efforts to give to the diocese a worthy Normal Training School. PARAGOULD HEARD FROM. Its Quota Received--First Returns.

(What the Vatican fundament- ally objects to L that the status of the Pope should be regulated by a law passed by the Italian parliament, which the parliament may revoke or modify.) Thus the Roman question remains now as ever, but the Pope's referenc& thereto is one more evidence of the charity of the Holy See which awaits only good will on the part of the world, particularly Italy. The Pop6 expresses his sympathy with a league of nations in urging a reduction ox military expenditures, and declares that the Vatican will not fail to co- operate with any movement that tends to this end. LONDON CABLE. (N. C. W. C. Special Cable.) London, June 7.--The penal encycli- cal on Christian Reconcilaition has been received by the London press as a politcal document of p)found sig- nificance. The London Times, in a double-column editorial, calls it a sa- gacious act of churchmanship and statesmanship, which will tend. to strengthen all Catholic thrones and presidential' Chairs. The Daily Tele- graph not only welcomes its political import, but declares that it disproves all charges of partisanship made against the Pope during the war.
