The Rt. Rev.

Charged Revolution Le!ader Many accusations and reports con- 'cerning alleged revolutionary activi- ties on the part of Bishop de la Moral ~ere made at the height of the Church and State controversy, it be- ing claimed at one time that the prelate had set himself up as a di- rector of a vast conspiracy and as the instigator of the revolution then being ,waged in Mexico. These as- serti0ns were declared untrue. Fed- eral troops were frequently sent out in search of the Bishop on the basis of these charges, but his whereabouts was never discovered. He changed his residences, unknown to the authorities, several times while he and at the conclusion of the service, Bishop Morris ~poke of Father Judt ~nd the Slovak parish in most corc- plimentary terms The Bishop's talk follows.

Wrote to Portes Gil. Bishop de la Morn frequently ad- ngratulated the people on their faith. "Through hard times and prosperous times, you have never changed. You have kept the Faith." The Bishop went on to tell the peo- ple how :he had prayed and asked the people to pray that they might be able to have a priest who could speak the native Slovak. He felt certain that Father Judt was an answer to their prayers. h"To soothe ~he older people when t eir last hour came an(l bring them kindly comfort and joy." Visibly effected, the Rt Rev~ Bishop thanked the jubflarian for his good work and told him to continue his efforts. "They arc nfine, my people. Keep them safe, sheep of my fold.

At the same time tn which the monument was inaugurated in Desio, a presentation was made to the Pope of a gold medal commemorating the event. This medal was the gift of the Mayor Comm. Gavazzi. The civil rites of the inauguration were followed by the singing of the Te Deum in the parochial ehurelL and Cardinal Schuster, Archbishop of Mi- lan, delivered a very eloquent speech. Finally, a very sumptuous recep- ~io:n was given at the Villa Gavazzi during which Marquis Paeelli pre- sented to Dr. Giulio Gavazzi the dec- oration of Knight Commander of the Piano Order, sent by the Pope with a letter full of praise for the Com- mendatore. JOSEPH JANSSENS, CATHOLIC PAINTER OF BELGIUM, DEAD By Rev. J. Van der Heyden, (Louvain Correspondent, N. C. W. C. News Service.) Louvain, July 8.---Catholic art in Belgium suffers a great less through :he recent death of the religious )ainter, Joseph Janssens. He was one of seven brothers, all richly en- dowed intellectually and five of whom became priests, and one of whom was the late Archbishop Lau- rent Janssens, a prolific writer of the Maredsous Branch of Benedic- tines. Another, the late anon F. A. Jenssens, a professor at the Univer- sity of Louvain, made a name for ~imself in the scientific world as a biologist. Although Joseph Janssens' art is quite personal, it bears nevertheless mine of the characteristics of the German impressionistic school. The personages of his religious tableaux resemble those of Hoffmann and Mathauser, explained by the fact that he received his first artistic training in Dusseldvrf, Germany. He follow- ed up his tutelage with a course un- der Guffens in Brussels and a tra- ditional sojourn in Italy, where he spent several years and so developed his art that when he was 24 years of age, he was entrusted wi th the hen- orable task of painting an oil por- trait of Pope Leo XIII. In 1881. he returned to his native land, where the report of the laurels he won in Italy secured for him immediate rec- ognition. For years his country men hailed him as their foremost portrait- TO THE PEOPLE OF PUI,ASI(I AND PERRY COUNTIES August 12 you will make your final choice candidates for Prosecuting Attorney. I served cult in this capacity for two terms. During my dstration, as such officer, the crimes which . pass through the Criminal Courts were prosecuted due diligence, and with the success that tends such prosecutions. This is the work with the prosecuting attorneys of this circuit usuall been content. However, there is MUCH MORE for the Attorney of this circuit to do. Pulaski County honored by being made the seat of government means that in this county the legislature convenes acts, and it is in this county, where State generally speaking, function. The Prosecuting ney of this circuit, is the only one who has the authority to investigate, by way of grand jury courts ,the conduct of State Officials as to acts, formed in this county, and naturally most acts are P' formed in Pulaski County. I found in existence a corrupt legislature w meant, of course, corrupt legislation, which in meant waste and extravagance. It meant that just were being defeated, and unjust bills were being ed by the use of money By prosecution of of the legislature, I succeeded in giving the pro Arkanusas a clean legislature for a number of which meant the passage of many just and laws In addition to this, I prosecuted many corporati0 . which were flagrantly violating the laws, in disrega of the rights of the people, and as the result of prosecuhons I pan rote the proper pubhc funds thousands of dollars The prosecutor's office she- be self-supporting. Avoid unjust taxes. There is a eneral belief that other i,,atiO g of conditions now existing at the seat of gover oL would be of advantage to the people Certaml this time, the people are not in the frame of mi a experiment in the selection of a Prosecuting Art for this circuit. He should be mature. I earnestly solicit your support and vote on Aug. LEWIS RHOTON For Prosecuting Attorney 0HAS. [3. (C 0 ) DAVI Candidate for County and Probate Judge \
