W. C. Special Cable.) Paris, Aug. 30.--The French Press, even including non-Catholic papers, is unanimous in paying tribute to the qualities of Cardinal Amette, who died suddenly of heart failure Sunday morning at Antony, a small village on the outskirts of Paris, where he was in annual retirement at the Convent boasted educational systems of the[of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny. day tend inevitably to the destruc- I The cardinal had returned from the tion of docility and the ruin of discip- I pilgrimage at Paray-Le-Monial last line.

Yet what do we behold all around us, wherever the young are made the victims of novel and noxi- ous educational theories? Childhood. is sacrificed to the Moloch of destruc- tive formulas; teachers, instead of using the wisdom and experience of their years, deliberately encourage little ones to say and do whatever fancy or chance puts into their small heads. Vicious Training. Too often thoughtless parents ad- mire the performances of .their mis- guided offspring as smart and preco- cious. Little do they dream of the bitter pangs that will be theirs in later years as a result of this un- natural forwardness. The plea, they must learn to express themselves, is the pretentious pretext of a very vicious training. .. The plague has even entered our own gates; it has begun to infect the children of Christian parents, caus- ing them to forget the ideals of true boyhood ' and maidenhood and to suffer the destruction of innocence. We have only to observe and listen: to realize that. the evil is abroad among us, busy with our own chil- dren. The present age is the era of lux- ury, and luxury ought to have no place in any life, least of all in the lifo of a child; i t i certain to pro- duce physical and moral weakness,' to corrupt the noblest faculties of the soul and render its slaves fit only for pleasure. Yet this is precisely  the bringing- Up that many children are receiving today at the hands of unwise par- ents. Nothing is denied the child of the period; it is pampered and cajoled, not trained. The result is that at an age when youth should wisely, that power is gone, and in its place is a craze for evil allurements. Trials of Life. Every life, no matter how well pro- tected, has its trials, losses and sor- rows. Men and women must be prepared early to meet these crosses in a strong Christian spirit and to recognize the blessings concealed under them. Luxury and its accom- panying influences wither the forti- tude of the soul and make it incap- able of patient industry and perse- verance, hut simplicity of life forms the Christian character and by wise discipline builds up that strength of soul' that gives us the foundations of true life and ,forms the pillars of so- ciety. Any otler ideal or rule is evil and ,sure to work harm. It were bad enough if the weakness of foolish parents produced bad fruit 0nly in their children, but it goes on to work havoc with their children's children and succeeding generations. Hence the enemy must be met at the beginning; parents rpust open their eyes and cultivate the principles of . (onttmed om Page 6.) he was slightly unwell; and Sunday morning his valet found him dying at six o'clock. Monsignor Odelin gave him the last sacraments. The death has caused the deepest emotion in Paris; and immediately after its announcement a great crowd of notables went to the archiepiscopal residence. Signatures covered the register, and the quarter was soon encumbered with carriages. Evening editions of the newspapers declare that the late cardinal was one of the greatest men of this epoch and that he was venerated by all parties. His wisdom ,prudence, moderation and righteousness, and the high in- telligence of his activity for the gen- eral welfare during the war was an examlSle of true latriotism, says the press, which recalls how he visited the wounded and encouraged the pop- ulation. He had the best of relations with the French Government, and performed several important missions at its request. His death is undoubt- edly a great loss for France and the Church, especially in the final stage of the resumption of diplomatic rela- tions, which he would have aided greatly. ARCHBISHOP OF DUBLIN HELPS BELFAST VICTIMS (N. C. W. C. Special Cable.) Dublin, Sept. 6. -- Archbishop Walsh of Dublin; has sent one hun- dred pounds to Doctor McRory, Bish- op of Down and Connor, to be used in behalf of the hundreds of Catholic workers, who were driven' from their employment at the Belfast shipyards by Orange bigots; and he makes his gift the occasion for a denunciation of the British Government. His " contribution to the funds for the unfortunate workers is a protest against what Archbishop Walsh char- acterizes as "criminal neglect of the primary duty of the Government to protect the lives and liberties of the people." The Belfast inTamies are possible only because they are openly toler- ated by F, nglish industry ruling b! the  strong ,hand of force in Ireland, His Grace declares. Attacks on Catholics in Belfast have been renewed. British soldiers have killed five and wounded eighty; and many Catholics have been evicted from their homes. British military have just sacked Queenstown. Thousands of workingmen ceased work to attend the Masses celebrated throughout Ireland for the welfare of Lord Mayor MacSwiney of Cork. The sacking of Queenstown, above referred to, is described in press dis- patches as having been carried out by British soldiers of the Cameron High- land Units, who broke from their quarters, and invaded the shops and dwellings of the Republicans. These advices say that shop windows in all the principal streets were smashed, and that six sfiops were wrecked and sixty-four damaged. Superior offi- cers, it was reported later, induced the men to return to their huts. OUR MOTTO: "THE GUARDIAN IN EVERY HOMEI" BIGOTRY 00TBACK IN PRIMARY HELl) IN MICHIGAN AUTHOR OF BILL TO PROSCRIBE PRIVATE SCHOOLS BADLY BEATEN. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Detroit, Sept. 4.Overwhelming re- pudiation and defeat at the hands of the voters of Michigan in last Tues- day's State-wide primaries was the outcome of the attempt of James Hamilton, author of a proposal to pro- scribe private schools, to get the Re- publican nomination for the governor- ship. Out of a possible 'total of 350,- 000 votes in Detroit, his owp city, Hamilton received less than 2,000, and finished seventh in the race, in which nine candidates were entered. His vote in the State at large was about 2O,00O. Groesbeck Won Nomination. The gubernatorial nomination was won by Attorney General Alex J. Groesbeck, who in July held in an of- ficial opinion that the proposed con- stitutional amendment requiring all children between the ages of 6 and 16 pears to attend the public schools was in conflict with the Federal Con- stitution and therefore invalid. Ham- ilton and other bigots have been en- deavoring for several years to obtain a law of this intent. It is admited that their real purpose was to attack the Catholic schools. Bigot Hamilton Defeated. After Attorney General Groesbeck's opinion had been rendered, the advo- cates of the amendment appealed to the Supreme Court of Michigan for an order compelling the State author- ities to put the proposition on the bal- lot at the November elections. At the same time they began an active cam- paign in behalf of Hamilton's candi- dacy. As a part. of their methods they attempted to arouse religious preju- dice throughout the State. With only a few precincts missing from the official count Attorney Gen- eral Groesbeck's defeat of Milo D. Campbell, his nearest competitor, by more thafi 17,000 votes, was conceded. The total vote cast for Groesbeck in 2,453 of the 2,947 precincts was 78,778. Campbell received 61,242 votes, Charles E. Mott, third in the race, 49, 173, and Hamilton, seventh, 15,000. Protestants Also Opposed Measure. In the last, several months Protest- ants as well as Catholics have de- nounced the scheme of Hamilton and his followers as "unfair, un-American and unconstitutional." Prominent min- isters of various Protestant churches, leading educators and well-known lav- yers were among the most vigorous opponents of the proposed amend- ment. / Attorney's Opinion. Attorney General Groesbeck, in his opinion to the Secretary of State of Michigan, pointed out, that the busi- ness of conducting private schools was lawful and in no wise inimical to the interests of the State. "Quite the contrary is the case and while the State has the undoubted right to regulate these private insti- tutions of learning * * * it can- not go. so far as absolutely to pro- hibit or destroy them or prevent those so desiring from attending them," said the Attorney General. SISTER SCIENTIST MAKES A DISCOVERY (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Glasgow, Aug. 28.--A method of breeding amoebae has been discovered by Sistee Monica Taylor of the Con- vent of Notre Dame, Downhill, Glas- gow, and has attracted considerable attention from English scientists. Sister Monica, who has won a doc- torate of science at Glksgow Univers- ity',/had already become well known in the scientific world as a contribu- tor to several of the most important jotirnals of microscopical science, and her most rodent work has but added to her constantly increasing fame" Sister Monica's exhibit attracted great attentior at a recent gathering of the Royal Society. SEEKS TO OFFSET WORK OF ENEMIES IN ROME WHY HOLY FATHER-I-S-]ING KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS TO MEET EFFECTIVELY THE HARASSING AND INSULTING PROPAGANDA NOW GOING ON IN THE ETERNAL CITY. IJGHT ON METHOi)IST ACTIVITY American Methodists Have Undertaken an Undisguised Campaign Against the Church in Rome, Robbing Children of Their Faith and Villifying Church and Pope Boldly. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Rome, Aug. 20.--There are many Protestant establishments in Rome. Some have it to their credit that they are places of worship for non-Catho- lic residents in and visitors to Rome. Of such are the Anglican church, the American Episcopal church, the Scot- tish Presbyterian church. Being Pro- testant they are necessarily anti- Catholic and anti-Catholic things are done occasionally, but they can say with some justice that their bbject is to provide a place for Protestants to go to church. There are many Italian conventicles, inevitably, pettily, nast- ily anti-Catholic, and there is he es- tablishment of the American Metho- dists in the Via XX Setteabre. Also there is the Waldensian church, more or less sincere in its way, but histori- cally anti-Catholic. Vatican Organ Indictment. The Methodists keep in touch with and help any institution that will work against the true faith, the faith of the Italians, the Iaith of the Ro- mans in the Holy Father's city Rome. One has to say about these people things which seem uncharitable., To support what one has to" say by au- thoritative words, let us look up what the Osservatore Roman. said at the time of the Roosevelt incident: Hotbed of Wiles. "Now it is notorious to all what this Methodist church is, i. e., a hotbed of wiles and hostilities against the spir- itual power of the Supreme Pontiff in his very see, a center for all the material and moral encouragement and aids destined to further in Rome the propaganda of apostacy, and in a word, to encourage and favor in every way and by every means open rebel- lion and war against the Church. There was, therefore, no question of offending in any way the liberty of action and conscience of Mr. Roose- velt, who was quite free to fulfill else- where the duties of his religion (for that matter Mr. Roosevelt is not even a Methodist), but only of abstaining from placing the authority and pres- tige of his name at the service and disposition of that very institution which is carrying on a work of open rebellion and treacherous war on the Catholic Church in its very metrop- olis on a basis of calumny and seduc- tion." Huge Subscriptions. That is clear enough. Different from the Protestant churches which do at least cater to the religious needs of their people and from the little Italian Baptist and other conventicles which are of courseanti-Catholic, but have no funds, the American Metho- dists have undertaken an, undisguised campaign against the  Church in Rome, provided with huge subscrip- tions from America, and they use any and every means to damage the Church, the natural and only Church of the people, firstly by robbing Ital- ians, principally children, of their faith; secondly, by viUifying that faith in its own center ahd the Head of that faith in his own city. They ally themselves, to that end, with any- thing and everything they can find, other Protestant sects, Freemasons, unfrockecl priests, even the Asino. Proposed Building. They have a large college in Rome, a house at Venice, they are building-- or proposing to build--an even larger college in a residential quarter shortly to be developed, just outside of Rome. they are negotiating for a large place for ummer quarters up in the TYen- tino,and they share with other Pro- testants in a school just outside the city wails and in houses in the coun- try where children are taken free to be stuffed with Protestantism. And they know all the time that anyone who takes the true faith away from an Italian leaves him empty. That is their sin. The Nathan Anti-Clerical Campaign. Their great days were during the anti-clerical wave which synchronized with the coming of Nathan thirteen years ago. There was an organized campaign then against the Church having many sides and many develop- ments. It began with the scandalous accusation against the priests in charge of schools in a small place in the North. When investigation was made, but, of course, long after the scandal had been spread far and wide, it was found that all the witnesses against the priests were of disreputa- ble character. Some of.them con- fessed to falsifying. There was no truth in the thing at all. Enlisting Ex.Priests. Of the anti-clerical happonings of those days the special activity of the Methodists were directed towards get- ting hold of priests Who were in dis- obedience to the authority of their Church. Modernism was rampant then and Almighty God's providential Pope, Plus X, was stamping on the evil thing before other people had fully understood its danger. So there were some, not many, priests astray on a wrong path. One of them was called Verdesi, and while most stopped on the downward path he got into the hands of the Methodists and went on. He finished by openly accusing a Je- suit Father Bricarelli of violating the seal of the confessional. He, and his abettors, thought that the Church and the Jesuit would be afraid to take up the challenge, But, with full approval and support, the Jesuit fought, and before the civil courts of Italy, Church and Jesuit triumphed over American Methodist and apostate priest. Verdesi was condemned to fine and imprisonment. He appealed and again was defeated, and the money of his bail that was escheated when he escaped, somehow, into Switzerland, was American Methodists' money. But the Methodists did not pay Father Bricarelli's expenses. Case of Apostate Friar. That was the most celebrated case of those days. All sorts of person- ages were called as witnesses. Cardi- nals gave evidence on commmsion, the courts deciding that their jurisdiction did not allow them to call a Cardinal to give evidence in public. And, in- directly in a letter to Father Brica- relli, evidence appeared from His Holiness himself. ISasy Money. There was another interesting case later in which the Methodists were implicateh. An aostate friar, Father Antonio da Susa, as he used to be, ap- peared in 911, to the horror of such Romans as were looking on, at the head of an anti-clerical procession conducated by the infamous Giordano Bruno association, commemorating the twentieth of September by pilgrim- age to the statue of that apostate. Father Antonio, O r Epifanio Ant.el, as he had then become, made a great speech about the tyrannies of Rome and in the evening joined the Metho- dists and further inveighed asainst the iniquities of the Church at their gathering in Via Settembre. They lent him 350 francs, as is their way with such, and no more was heard of him for two years, when Rome was thrilled by the story, related by a (Continued on Page 5.)
