AUSTRALIAN BISHOPS PROTEST INDIGNITY TO DR. MANNIX File 1,'ormal Complaint With British Government--I)r. Mannix's Latest State Insisis on Justice to Ireland. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.)

This document, wlfich has been handed to the govermnent, is sub- scribed by the Archbishops of Well- ington, Perth, Adelaide, the Co-Adju- tor Archbishop of IIobart, the Bishops of Armidale, Rockhampton, Cook- town, Ballarat, Sandhurst, and Wil- cania-Forbes. Insisls on Justice to Ireland. Since lm took up his residence in Nazareth House at Hammersmith, the residence of a religious community founded by the late Cardinal Man- ning, Archbishop Mannix has been subjected to a continual process of in- terviewing by newspaper correspond- ents, all of whom leave with the hap- piest impressions-of the Archbishop's affability. Of all the statements the Archbishop has. made since he went to Nazareth House, the most impor- tant is that contained in an interview given to the representative of the Manchester Guardian. Being asked for a definite statement regarding the charge made against him of hostility to England, Mgr. Mannix said: No Hostility to England. "That is not true. I have no hos- tility to England or to any other country. What I desire with all my heart is peace everywhere, and par- ticularly peace and friendship be- tween England and Ireland, and I and his forcible landing at an ob- hope to see it. scure English port from the destroyer "But it can only come in one way, that took his Grace off the Baltic, is and that is by way of justice to Ire- already having one good result: the land. people of these islands know a good "I attribute this charge to the mis- deal more about Mgr.

The policy of exclusion found little support in the press in general, though there were certain journals that would gladly have hailed the news that the Archbishop had been sent to the Tower of London. The doubtful wisdom of coercing a prelate of the Church is realized in the quar- ters responsible for this policy, and everything will be done to cover up the blunder--if the Archbishop will consent to having it covered up.

OF THE PEOPLE During the World War two naines of ecclesiastics came" into special prominence. They were Cardinal Mercier and Archbishop Mannix. The great Belgian' Cardinal was heard round the world as he denounced in scathing terms the dastardly violation of an' innocent nation. The world i heeded his voice and assented to the force of his logic. Belgium was saved. He championed the cause of a free people and vindicated their right to remain free. Archbishop Mannix championed a right equally sacred--the right of a great commonwealth to determine its action in any cause whatsoever. He saw that certain interested parties were attempting to interfere with his country's action in the great world struggle by the use of insidious means: He struck off the head of this enemy and vindicated the right of Australia to freedom from extraneous influence in its internal affairs. Had he not done so, Austral|;X ould have been debauched and then \\;,manacled for years to come. \\; Doctor Mannix is absolutely fear- less. To his fearlessness there is linked up a logical consistency.

"But tell me," said the father, when all had become somewhat com- posed. "Tell me how is it they called you 'Mary' "? "Because I wore a medal of the Immaculate Conception around my neck when I was picked up," was the answer. "Ah, you were both consecrated to Mary," the Captain returned, "and well indeed has she protected you. Come, we must all thank the good ernment, which is worded as follows: Outrage and Indignity.

We have een it stated that Dr. Mannix's recent utterances in America have drawn upon him the condemna- tion of the Holy See. We are in a pos!tion to deny that His Grace has ever received a censure or a rebuke of any kind from the Holy See. On the. contrary, knowing as we do the  splendid services rendered by His Grace to the Church in Australia, we feel sure that he enjoys the full con- fidence of his superiors in Rome. We have already assured His Grace that, in the trial througl which he is pass- ing, he has our fullest confidence and support. We learn with pleasure that already arrangeNments are being made to hold monster demonstrations of man, until recently, the Protestant Episcopal Bishop of Delaware, tells the story of his conversion . to the Catholic Church.
