" (By N. 6. W. C. News Service.) Washington, D. C., Sept. 19.Bain- bridge Colby, Secretary of State, in his address to the National Charities P'i/' p Conference at the Catholic University, ) :' said he thought "there is no charitable work that is carried on with such gusto, with such conviction, with such interpidity and with such effective- ness as the Catholic charities of the >" world." Secretary Colby spoke at the ": : close of {be first day's session of the conference: f'alue of Charities. , " After informing his hearers that he was not a Catholic, Secretary Colby ::% said: i* "I feel I should make this known to * you at the outset, so that you will realize the value of my unfeigned, simple and earnest tributes to your work, because it comes from a some- : what detached source. I am an on- looker, and I watch you not with a :(:: sense of proud participation in your : labors, but with an appraising frame of mind. Catholic Work in Europe. "I saw the work of your organiza- : lions in Europe during the war. You ! had/a good deal of money, but not ] :.: nearly so nmch as you could have em- : ployed and not nearly so much as some other organizations, but I was ! always struck with the .fact that the representatives of your charities were . very close to the line of fire, were very well up with the advanced troops, were very busily engaged where the work was most difficult and where the problems'were most chal- F lenging. On Firing Line. "All credit to the bravo and noble men and women of your faith who carried the principles of Catholic charity to the firing line, who carried them into the base hospitals, carried them into the field hospitals, watched over the sons of America in their hours and moments of danger, of suf- fering, stress and temptation and // have brought back so many of the ", :' fine and sturdy citizens that we find them to be. No Discrimination. "There ia one little thing about Catholic charity. It is no discrimina- tor between its objects. Succor is its .' purpose, relief is its motive, and suf- fering is its. goal." More than a thousand delegates and visitors heard this great tribute to Catholic charity from the lips of the !;(.  premier of President Wilson's cabi- net. Apostolic Benediction. !  , Pope Benedict imparted the apos- !},!:!:ii' !. tolic benediction to the conference and expressed his cordial approval of  its efforts and objects. The Holy Father's blessing, and approbation . were conveyed in a cablegram sent to the Conference by Cardinal Gasparri, I Papal Secretary of State. The mes-  sage was read to the Conference by 'IL!II / Right Rev; Thomas J. Shahan, rector i'i j of the Catholic University. Immediately after the formal open- ing of he Conference, Sunday morn- . " ing, mass "was celebrated by the Ap0stlic Delegate, Archbishop Ben- zano. Bishop Shahan preached the sermon. An informal reception was held by Archbishop Benzene after the mass, *:,': Philanthropic activities of the Cath- olic women's organizations, including the National Council of Catholic Women,.were the subjects of reports submitted to the Conference Sunday. Keen on Steel Industry. A proposal that workers be accord- - ed a voice in determining he condi- tions (of the industry in which they are employed was advanced and argued by Thomas J. Puffy, chairman . of the Ohio Industrial Commission. / Mr. Duffy's reference to the steel strike of, last year provoked 'signs of keen interest among his hearers. The " men in control 'of the steel industry were charged by M. Duffy With hav- ing "deceived the American people and defeated the steel workers" by means of misleading propaganda. "I do not wish to imply that the employers in the steel industry are worse than other employers," said Mr. Duffy. '%I refer to them merely be- cause recent developments in the steel industry fudsh conspicuous examples ::" : : of the methods that should not be tol- erated by the American people." / :, Gravity is the only power used in I a new device for labeling 'tin cans, which roll down an incline over paste, then over a pile of laels, then over brushes 'which smooth the labels.

AUSTRIAN WAR VICTIMS BEING CARED FOR BY ENGLISH CATHOLICS (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) London, Sept. 2.--More than- six hundred Catholic children are includ- ed among the two parties of Austrian .and Hungarian war victims who are now being cared for by the English people. Each party is composed of fie hundred boys and girls, the for- mer ranging from 5 to 12, and the latter from 5 to 14 years of age. ,{'Praised be Jesus Christ," the salu- tation of the Austrian people, is heard frequent!y from the lips of these children whenever one of their priests visits the lblace where they are domiciled, some in homes and 'others in public institutions. St Augustine's Abbey, Ramsgate, is a center for donatior[s for the children, who eagerly receive rosaries, holy pictures and other articles of devotion. Recently two hundred of them pre- sented an edifying spectacle by re- ceiving the Ho!y Euc]arist in a body. The Ray. Arnold Wiler, O. S. B., of Buckfast Abbey is" attending to the spiritual needs of the children and three Sisters of Notre Dame des Missions are assisting in the work. Human nature is often mistaken for kindheartedness. /Continued from Page 1.) upon which will be reared the mighty sanctuary. Fitting Token. It is intended that in all respects the Basilica will be a fitting token of the love which American Catholics have for God's greatest creature-- His own Mother. From Europe's wealth of art will come the interior ornamentation of the srine. The more than forty altars will give op- portunities for the richness, artistry and beauty which will be lavished on tiffs most impressive of American churches. The high altar in the main church will he the offering of the priests of the United States. On this altar will be expended the elnbellishment that is needed to make it a masterpiece of art in a setting of grandeur. Murillo's Mosaic. Surrounding this altar will be fif- teen snmll but ornate chapels in honor of the Mysteries of the Rosary. In the sanctuary is to be placed a full- size mosaic copy of Murillo's "Im- nmculate Conception." This is to be the gift of His Holiness Pope Bene- dict XV and will be executed in the famous mosaic workshop of tle Vati- can. It is the fir Papal gift of the kind to come to America. The largest chapel in the rhain church is to be dedicated to the memory of American soldiers and sailors who fell in the Great War. Will Cost $5,000,000. When at last completed the shrine will be to the Catholics of the United States in a religious way what the Capitol is to thenV in a civil way-- the product of their gifts, their proud possession as citizens of a spiritual commonwealth. It will require $1,000,000 to build the sanctuary of the shrine" alone. The /cost of the entire Basilica, in- cluding the campanile, will approxi- mate $5,000,000, and perhaps an even larger amount may be expended on it. It is expected that the crypt or lower portion of the church will be finished within three years. Although the laying of the founda- tion stone is the beginning of actual work on the edifice, there remains a great deal to be done and a very large sum of money to be gathered before the shrine takes its place as one of the monumental buildings of the national capital.

C., Sept. 20.Mov- ing pictures of Cardinal .Gibbons lay- ing the foundation stone of the Na- tional Shrine of the Immaculate Con- ception in Washingto on September 23, will be taken fo reproducidon un- [der Catholic auspices.
