Commits France. Head of Columbia University Falls Under Criticism of Catholic Editor and Tries to Crawl Out. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Brooklyn, N. Y., June 14.--In re sponse to a demand made by the edi- tor of the Brooklyn Catholic Tablet for the withdrawal and correction of a derogatory reference to the Jesuits in a pamphlet issued by the Amcrican Association for International' Concil- iation, Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler, president of Columbia University, a member of the organization, has re- turned two rather unsatisfactory re- plies. The editor of the Tablet, how- ever, considers the protest he made to Dr. Butler as likely to prevent the association from giving a similar af- front to Catholics. The statement to which the Tablet's editor took exception was that in the creed of Nicholas Lenine, the Russian Bolshevist leader, "he is as unscru- pulous and as uncompromising as a Jesuit, and in his code of political ethics the end to be atained is a justi- fication for the employment of any weapon."., In his first reply to the Tablet's let- ter on the subject Dr. Butler dis- claimed responsibility for the offen- sive allusion to the Jesuits, but did not volunteer an apology. The editor of the Tablet wrote again to Dr. But- ler demanding a withdrawal of the tatement. "It goes without saying that the sentence did not have either the ap proval or the knowledge of the Ameri- can Association for International Con- ciliation or of any of its officers," wrote Dr. Butler, but again gave no intimation that it would be corrected. Dr. Butler seemed greatly displeased that any one should find fault with a statement that, he said, "lay unno- ticed and harmless" until the Tab!et% editor "made it a subject of formal propaganda."

News Letter from l-oesant Friends of Ireland. New York, June 23.The month of May has been a very active one in the organization. It has been a month of conferences and conventions of many of the Protestant Churches. In Des Moines, Ia., the Methodist Church, in its National Conference, went out of its way .to show that un- der the guise of a religious organiza- tion is is potentially a political machine. It was surprising to hear from the Methodist preachers in Des Moines that they considered them- selves competent and qualified in the name of the Divine Master whom they Supposedly serve to urge upon the American people that we use our influence to keep four million white people in bondage. There has always been a strong sus- uicion in this country that organized Protestantism was interested in more than the preaching of the gospel. We have had no outward evidence, how- ever, of any organized church body injecting itself officially into politics until a Conference of Methodist Min- isters assembled in Des IKoines dur- ing the month Of May, solemnly pass- ed a resoluton condemning the cause of freedom for the Irish people. The "No Popery" cry is being rais- ed again in America. Behind this propaganda is seen doing what is the most sinister thing that it has ever attempted to do in America. To maintain its strangle-hold on her ill- gotten Empire and by diverting dis- cussion to other issues, England is trying to do in America, what she has so skillfully done in Egypt, India and Ireland, arouse religious antagonism where none normally exists. The tragedy of this Methodist reso- lution is not the effedt on the cause of Irish freedom, but its effect and the internal life of American people• Blindly and unlowingly, the Meth- odists and later the Presbyterians in their Synod at Philadelphia, have lighted the torch of bigotry that de- cent Americans had thought once and for all extinguished and which cer- tainly the Great War should have made the rekindllng oz forever im- possible. If Methodists desire to function as Methodists at the Polls of the United States, let us all be aware of the fact. We are not protagonists for the.Roman Catholic Chinch. Our organization is distinctly one that has no affiliation or relation with the Roman Catholic Chuh or its hier- archy. We would fight Roman Cath- olic political control as quickly as we WILL' fight Methodist or Presby- terian control of bur polit:ical affairs. The .significant thing however, is this; that ufortunately Christianity in America is in a sad stae of affairs. Less than one-third of the entire population have any church affilia- tions. Actions like that of the Moth- odists 'and Presbyterians will further (Continued on page 6) BRITISH PROPAGANDA SHOWS ITS DIRTY FACE TO THE STATE DEPARTMENT WITH VILE PRO- TESTS. Archbishop Mannix Austrahan Metropolitan Hounded by British Agents Under Leadership of Marcellus Parsous, a Supersensi- tive American--British Citizen. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Washington, D. C., June 19.Eaxly this week the State Department re- ceived a trieRs'am from Marcellus Parsons and other passengers of the steamer Ventura, en rout, from Aus- tralia to San Francisco, protesting against the alleged discourtesy to the American national anthem by Arch- bishop Mannix of Austra!ia, who was a passenger • on the same vessel. Pro-British Work. The protest was made the basis o articles in the New York ,secular papers. It now appears that the ef- forts to discredit Archbishop Mannix previous to his arrival in America were inspired by pro-British sym- pathy and are probably the work of pro-Britlsh agents. L<mkiug for Trouble. Members of the Mannlx party have declared that they learned, shortly after the ship had sailed, that there were British agents aboard who were determined to make trouble for the distinguished prelate. According to members of the Arch- bishop's staff, the only basis for Par- sons' protest was the refusal of the Archbishop to stand when the band played the British national anthem and his refusal later to rise, upon the insistance of a Britisher; when the band, unknown to Archbishop Mannix, as playing the "Star Spangled Ban- ner." No Slight Intended. That Archbishop Manni was nevc. disposed to slight the flag is shown by his rdiogram to the Vicar Gen. eral of San Francisco, sent from the Ventura before his arrival, which says: "I eagerly await my first oppor- tunity to greet the American flag on American soil." On his arrival in San Francisco, Archbishop Mannix, who was met by the acting mayor, members of the board of supervisors, distinguished clergymen and a citizens' comnittee of one hundred, said: Loves a Free Land. "No Irishman could set foofi om American soil without feeling hs soul thrilled at all America has done for Ireland. No man could come to America at the present moment with, out feeling that he was coming to that country whence in the great crisis of the world's history came the sons of America who fought for the free- dom of the .world and for the freedom of the little nations and that democ- racy might be safe for all time and war ended forever," Parsons Unsuccessful. Among at least one group of gov- ernment officials, the animus of the Psons# telegrar signatories and their purpose in urging, as they did unsuccessfully, that Archbishop Man- nix be ecluded from this country, were suspected from the start. In- specter White of San Francisco did not pay the slightest heed to those who tried to embarrass the distin- guished guest of America and it is understood that both the State De- partment and the Department of lra- migratio'n, to which the Parsons' pro- test was transmitted, consider the in- cident as closed. Meanwhile Archbishop Mannix who left San Francisco after a thoroughly enjoyable stay of nearly a week. is speaking to large audiences in differ- ent cities of the United States and is being accorded receptions that amomt to veritable triumphs.
