Cathedral Catholic Club The regular meeting of the Cathe- dral Catholic Club was held in Cathe- dral Hall Monday, August 27th, with a very good attendance. At this meeting Mr. Frank Letzig tendered his resignation. Mr. Letzig will be married September 4th to Miss Margaret Himstedt, who served as first president of the club. Mr. Letzlg was an untiring worker and it was or to the first Bishop of the Diocese of Little Rock, already has a credit deposit of $1,225.00. This burse calls for no stated amount o/ domtion, and its present sum total is the result of large and snmtt donations by those interested in perpetuating the name of Bishop Byrne in connection with the priesthood of the diocese which h organized and unto which he gave of his prayers, of his work, and of his life. The Bishop Byrne Burse is a popular one, toward which even donations of one dime or more will be acceptable and receive du6 credit on the Seminary records.

Mr.] Wright has also been a very active] member and is very well qualified for the position. I After an absence of several moaths it was a real pleasure to see again the face of the Spiritual Adviser, Rev. Father Moran, who has been away for his health. Father Moran made a few timely remarks regarding the future welfare of the club and also paid a splendid tribute to Mr. Frank Letzig, retiring president, and to Miss Margaret Himstedt, the first president of the club. The next meeting will be a social meeting and will be held September 10th. The Province qf Quebec has a pop- ulation of 2,400,000, of whom 924,000 are Ca.tholics.

Few religious in any part of the World possessed such a proud record as the venerable Scottish nun, Mother Mary Sales Leslie of the Ursuline or- der, who died recently at her convent in Edinburgh after having completed tile seventy-first year of her religious profession. There have "been many eonversmns among the Jews in Palestine since the war ended, and greater success is pos- sible. Already missionary priests, converts from Judaism, are offering themselves for the wrk. There is no man but knows more evil of himself than he does of other people. If some men were to ticcuse them- selves of being liars, lots of their ac- quaintances would refuse to believe them. Canadian Catholics number 3,388,- 668. It is customary to relight the lamp of the sanctuary from the expiring flame. In this way the light is never extinguished and thus typifies the love of God which never dies.

News Service) Paris, Aug. 13.--Grenoble was the meeting place" this year of the Social Week of I,'rance, the fifteenth since the foundation of these Weeks. The subject of the conference this year was the problem of depopulation. Thirteen hundred delegates, social workers of every description, ecclesi- astics, theologians, professors, law- yers, journalists, manufacturers, lanCt owners and militant workmen from the Christian labor unions, attended. In addition to the l,'rench members representatives from eighteen foreign nations assisted at the conference, anaong them being Father Rutten, member of the Belgian Senate "(1 groups of large families in the vari- ous professions, in tile nation and even beyond the frontiers, interna- tional groups of heads of families. JUB1L EE ECHOES Last week's edition of "The Guar- dian," gave an aceoun of tile Silver Jubilee of Rev. Mother Fidelis, which was gotten up by the Si:;ters of the Academy on Wednesday, Aug. 22nd. A very superior concerl; program was rendered after the banquet b. the Sisters. It was classical, cultured, re- fined, and very pertinent to the occa- sion. Addresse to the Rev. Mother, in prose and poetry, vocal and instru- mental solos, duets, trios and chorus, all having a chord of congratulation to the Rev. Mother, mast have made her feel joyful in spite of her well- known modesty and retiring disposi- tion. According to custom, the names of the participants are omitted.

Dural Ar- nouhl, deputy from Paris, president of the Labor Committee of the Cham- ber of Deputies. A telegram from the Supreme Pon- tiff brought the Apostolic Benedic- tion with fatherly wishes for the suc- cess of their work. The study of the problem of detop-I uhttion had been prepared by an ex- tensive consultation among the study clubs and organizations of the social Catholics. Figures , facts, opinion were collected and condensed in a general report which constitutes a doctmmnt of tremendous sociological importance. Various Aspects of Problem After the general exposition given by M.Pathoit, President of the Organ- ization Committee of the Social Weeks, the various aspects of the prohlem were presented in turn by recognized authorities. Eminent jurists were gven the task of studying the birth-rate crisis ifi its relations to the code and the law. The conservator of the Social Museum of Paris, the dean of the Faculty of Law of Dijon, the President of the Bar Association of Lyons, professors of taw at the Catholic and official fac- ulties of Lyons and Genoble also spoke. ])'rom the moral point of view, the problem was examined by theologi- ans and philosophers; Msgr. Lavellee, rector of the Catholic Faculty of Ly- ons; Rev. Father Gillet, professor at the Catholic Institute of Paris; Rev. I ther Valensln, Professor at the Cdtholic Institute of Toulouse and M. Jacques Chevalier, professor at the Faculty of Letters of Grenoble. Canon Desgranges, the famous pop- ular lecturer, proclaimed the power- lessness of materialism to solve the problem. He said: "Their doctrine of the right to happiness, advocated, preached and praised in a thousand ways, has brought us to the point where marriage is no longer anything but an association of interests, a so- ciety to insure mutual enjoyment, an association of egotism which regu- lates the date and the number of births, which econmmses life, bour- geois circles and hatred and fury among the masses." Comparing the conclusions of the various speakers, the causes of de- population may be stated thus: the paganism of morals, the decline of re- ligious life in certain circles, the dis- taste for duty, the weakening of pa- ternal authority, the egotism ofpar- ents, neomalthusian propaganda, the audacity of immorality, the housing crisis, the work of women outside the] home, alcoholism, tuberculosis, etc. Remedies Considered I Having stated the facts and recog- I nized the causes, there remained the proposal of the remedies. Msgr. Julien, Bishop of Arras. ex- plained the role of the State in at- tempting to cure this evil, the means it should use to cmbat the scourge of depopulation, to prepare the juri- dical uplift of the family as well as its economic uplift. Msgr. Baudril- lart, rector of the Catholic Institute of Paris, emphasized the work of ed- ucators and especially of Christian teaching. Father Rutten and Msgr. Zirnheld, President of the French- Confederation of Christian Workmen,. defined the part which could be play- ed in such a campaign by the Chris- tian syndicates.

PERSONS OF NOTE (Continued from Page 5.) Rev. J. Elliott Ro, C. S. P., recently made available to the Eng- lish speaking public the bool of Pro- fessor N. Paulus on "Indulgences as a Social Factor in the Middle Ages." Of this work the "Press Bulletin of the C. V. says: .... Many Catholics for the first time learned that indul- gences before the lformation were graLted not merely for such ecclesi- astical and charitable objects as church-building, hospitals and the Crusades, but also for those with a social or civic purpose, for example, for the construction of bridges, the re- pair of highways, the benefit of trade guilds, and the founding and conduct- ing of "monti di piers," as the chari- table loan shops were called. According to a news item printed in British paper(, a bridge is to pass away at Bideford in England, which was built through tle assistance of indulgences. The story of its origin, as printed in the "Catholic Times," says: "The building of this bridge .was owing to Divine revelation or inSpec- tion. The inhabitants, observing the great danger of passing the ford, be- cause of the rapidity of the tide, and the breadth and roughness of the wa- ter, and that at times numbers had been drowned, to their great loss and grief, made a few attempts, at divers times and places, to build a bridge, but could find no firm foundation to set it on. At length, one Richard Gerhard, priest of the place, was ad- monished by a vision to lay the foun- dation of bridge near a rock, which should be rolled from the higher grounds upon the Strand. The Bish- op granted indulgences and sent forth licenses to collect benevolences of the brethren and sisters within the dio- cese, which occasioned multitudes to offer money cheerfully. And he greater personages allowed a certain number of workmen and some land towards it; the common people to give--some a week's, others a month's work in their own persons, all vicing, i according to their abilities, to further so charitable and beneficial an under- taIdng. All which, in short, had so good an effect that the work was not only in time completed,  but there ' . were and are lands settled for keep- i ing it in constant and perfect repair." While it is admitted that certain abuses connected with indulgences had crept in before the Reformation, which the Council of Trent abated, there can be little doubt that the method now so frequently employed to raise money for charitable and so- cial purposes, by lolding b'azars, euchres and raffles, is far les able than the arrangement ndopd in the Middle Ages and referred tu above. John Howard Payne, the author of the immortal ballad, "Home Sweet Home," the ceotenary of which was cevtl, celebrateh di.d a Catholic. A few weeks before his  death (1852), at Tunis, where he was American consul, Payne was receiw ed into the Catholic Church by the vicar of the Bishop of Tunis. i> [ #
