"I am," he added, "proud to bear testi- mony to this great truth, and I know I am speaking not only for myself, b-t for nen of the greatest weight and influence throughout the coun- try." Recalls Penal Days. An incident reminiscent of the pen- al days has occurred in Longford. A body of young men marched four deep to mass at Carrickedmond. Three of them were afterwards arrested at daybreak in their homes by the mill- tary and charged with "having taken part in military exercises!" They were sentenced each to fourteen days' imprisonment. The inference from the extraolinary episoae is that now, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, June 22 and 23, in the city of Galveston. The laity of the city and diocese have taken the initiative in the seculiar observance of the anni- versary, which will begin with a re- ception at the city auditorium on the evening of the 22, when the public in general will be invited to pay theTr respects to Father Kirwin. On Wednesday ramming, June 23, High Mass wil be celebrated at St. Mary's Cathedral. That evening a banquet will be tendered Father Kit- win at Hotel Galvez, at which many distinguished visitors will be, present. B!ographieal keteh. James M. Kirwin, the son of Pat- rick and Mary Ryan Kirwin, was born in Circleville, Ohio, July 1, 1872, where he was educated in the paro- chial school of that city. Later he attended St Mary's College in Ken- tucky, and Mount St. Mary's Semin- ary in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he was ordained June, 1895. Father Kirwin manuments Were placed t im*--- in 1905. In 1907 Father Kirwin was a fixate in settling the Southern Pacific dock workers' strike. In 1909 he assisted m putting the saloons out of the resi- dence district of the city. Father Kirwin was appointed president of St. Mary's Seminary in La Porte in 1911, and was made Vic- ar General of the diocese of Galves- ton in Easter, 1912. Prior to that time the seminary lad been a source of expense to the diocese, the annual deficit being some $5,000. Under Fa- ther Kirwin's administration the in- stitution has been conducted without a penny of expense to the diocese; it carries twenty to twenty-five free seminarians on its rolls"and has given the diocese thirty-six priests. When, recently, more accomodations became necessary and a new building was de- termined upon, Father Kirwin wdnt out among his friends and, within six months, raised $100,000 in dono- tions of $I,000 and upwards. Another noteworthy feat was his raising of $25,000 for St. Mary's Or- phanage at Galveston When General Pershing, cOmmand- er of the American Expeditionary, Forces, first went to France, he sought the services of Father Kirwin for the organization and direction of chaplaincy world :in "the 'American army, but pressing and imperative duties at home compelled him to de- TEACHERS' STRIKE IN IRISH SCH00I,S GOVERNMENT FAILED TO PRO- VIDE FUNDS PLEDGED---DE- MANDS MET. (By N. C. W. C. News Sexwice) Dublin, June 12.--The recent strike of the secondary lay teachers in the Catholic schools, which happily has been settled through the generosity of past pupils and the parents of the students in pledging sufficient sums to pay the bonuses demanded, was a very painful incident in Irish educa- tional life. The strike was confined to the Catholic schools, the Protestants be- longing to the secondary teachers as- sociation having separated themselves from that organization when it af- filiated with the labor movement.

The terms asked by the strikers in- volved payment of a bonus of 75 pounds to each non-resident register- ed teacher. But,' said the statement of the heads of the Limerick schools, it is impossible for a body of men and women, who from religious motives have voluntarily undertaken to pro- vide education for the people's child- ran, to meet with these demands. The" schools, it was pointed out had no sources of income except the tuition fees paid by parents, which in most cases were merely nominal, and an entirely inadequate governmen grant. They are in. debt nearly nine- teen hundred pounds.

PAGE FIVR PRIEST SCIENTIST RECEIVES DEGREE High Honol  for Abbe Breuil, Who Proved Culture of Men of Remote Periods. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Paris, June 12.--The award of an honorary doctorate by the University of Cambridge, on May 19, when de- grees Were also conferred upon Vis- count Jellicoe and Earl Haig, to the Abbe Henri Breuil, is a well-deserved recognition which will be widely ap- preciated in France and throughout the learned world. Born at Mortain (Manchc), in 1877, and ordained in 1900, the Abbe was educated at St. Sulpice, where his professor, noting his interest in science, turned h thoughts to prehistoric days Having studied science at the Sor- bonne and the Institute Catholique of Paris, he made his first tour of 'the caves of the Bordogne and the Pyre- nees in 1897, and published the re- " "'- -'-azches !nD, the Stone. suits o1: ns ,. and Bronze ages in "Anthropoos.. Thenceforth he devoted himself, along with others, to the. study of the paint- ed caves of France and Spain, a work which in 1904 the Prince of Monaco took under his patronage, and guar- anteed the publication of its results. To the Abbe Bread's artistic talem are due all the tracings and drawings of the wonders of cave art in Dor- dogne, the Pyrenees, and Cantabria, and he has cooperated in almost all the books on prehistory published in Europe by various savants, and le has himself written a large number 'of articles and papers on prehistoric man and his work. In 1905 the Uni- versity of Fribourg (Switzerlmad) ap- pointed him Supernumerary Profes- sor of Prehistory, and when five years later the Frince of Manaeo fatrnded the Institute of Human PaIaeontology at Paris, the Abbe was'nominated one of its tirst professors. In presenting the Abbe for his de- gree in the Senate, the Cambridge Public Orator said: "Concerning the origin of the human race there have been in the past many controversies and the problem is not yet solved. The question whether we came from a monkey or an angel has been hotly debated. With a few bones they had found, some have re- constructed the pithecanthropum with- out the spark of intelligence Our guest, on the contrary, in his exp',ora- tions of aves and grottoes in France and Spain, has found the dwelling places of our ancestors full of draw- ings and paintings .which prove that they had reached before many thou- sand years ago an exceedingly hign stage of civilization. They knew sd well how to use lines and colors, they had observed life so closely, that their painting of a stag looking back with open mouth and moving" his tired limbs would give the sensation of life. Tim teeth and hair of the primitive elephant, the blunt nose of the horse, the wool of the rhinoceros, were known to them an(] painted by them. "It is with joy, therefore, that we g'reet the Abbe who has vimlicated the claim of our race to humanity" All the recipients of degrees were after-arts entertained to luncheon by the.. vice-chancellor, when EaE Haig and the Abbe Breuil responded to the toast of the new doctors. On the pre- vlous evening they had been present at a dinner given in their honor at St. John's College, and at which Prince Albert and Prince Henry were pres- ent. Earlier in the afternoon Father l.arsha'.l held a ception at the Catholic Chaplaincy of the Catholic members of the university to meet the Abbe. It was an informal gath- ering, but it afforded an opportunity to express to him the satisfaction felt that a priest-scientist should be receiv- ing such signal recognition at Cam- bridge. OPERA BUILDED ON THE LEGEND OF ST. CHRISTOPHER (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Paris, June 10.Relig:ous inspira- tion is the motif of an opera which theatergoers are applauding and critics are praising, without knowing whether to classify it as an oratoria with modern effects, or a return .to the operatic principles of the me- dieval stage. This is "The Legend of St. Christopher," which is being presented at the Paris Opera. The "Legend" is designed, says it. author, the French poet-composer, Vinceht d'Indy to preach a sea,non and impart a'sense of, Christian fer- vor.
