What Catholics ire Doing to put Themselies
io Control of fiowments.
Haven't we been told that Cath
olics are loyal to the government
they are under? And were net
the Irish the most loyal of all peo
ple? What about the fine preach
ment by a certain Mr. Scott in St.
Lou a, und9r the pay ct th
Knights of Columbus? And was
not' the tbeme of his discourse
"Peace"? And it was Bark Occh
ran who spoke on peace in Chicago
to a mixed audience of Protes
tants, Mason9r Jews, and distin
guished citcze. s . ,
Now it appears that Irish papists
have bes i raising mouey. a hun
dred thousand dollars, it was re
ported, to promote an Irish Ro
man Catholic rebellion on the
"auldsod."
It is suspected, too. and has
be9n f reefy charged, that, papists
can not be loyal to any gover
nment, unless that goverment bows
its knee to the pope. This fact
has not on y been manifested in
the uprising in Ireland and sus
tained by the Irish of America,
bat is demonstrated by the Boman
Oatholio plct against the republio
of Mexico, headed by Felix Oias.
All this has happened since Pres
ident Wilson requested that Amer
iotns restrain themselves in
speech a :d aotion so as to give no
offense to the wardistraoted na
tions. We now know what would hap
ben hruld this nation become in
volved in war with the pope's sub
jects, "We are Catholics first,
then Americans," said the St
L uu vVestern Watchman (Oath-
olio). Wore than that, for as
soon as the oocfliot is on, Rame
would begin to bargain with our
foe to seoare pledges ot help to
ob tain temporal power and polit
ical recognition. It is more than
suspected that this is the oase in
Europe, as the powers have been
nc titled that the pope would he
glad to reoeive diplomats to talk
orer matters relative to the pope's
temporal schemes with offers on
his part to serve the interest of
the contending nations when
peace is negotiated.
The attitude of the revolution
ists in Ireland, their topes and
aim, are set forth in their pro
clamaticn issued in Dublin at the
outbreak of the reyolt. The last
paragraph readsjas follows:
' Hiving partly perfected their
discipline and resolutely waited
for the right moment to reveal it
sslf, she now seizes that moment
and, supported by her exiled chil
dren in America and by her gal
lant allies in Earops, but relying
on her own strengt she strikes in
full confidence of victory."
The pitiful thing about this
abortive revolt is that neither the
pope, biihopior priests, who. must
hate known all aboat it, made
any attemptrby authority or advice
to prevent so disloyal an under
taking. By so much is made dear
the attitude of the papal church,
ar.d the after folly of relying on
its patriotism or loyalty. Rev;

A special session of the board
of aldermen was held at the city
hall last Thursday night. The
eleotion c-f city policemen was
scheduled to take pi see but as
there were 'two members of the
board absent, G orge A Fisher
and J, D. Norwood, this matter
was put off until a latr date, I ut
it will be dieptsed of before the
first of June.
W. F. Kelsey, colored, pre
sented a ohait together with re
commendations by colored citi
zens for a si'e for the new school
building t' be eTected for oolored
children. Three places were rs
commended, -these being Jersey
City, corner Oriige and West
Streets, and on Loyd Street He
was reformed that the aldermen
would give these looations con
sideration. A letter was read from Manager
Hole of the Public Service Com
pany stating that this company
was resdy to proceed with its part
of the work in the pavit g of West
Oounoil Street from Jackson to
Caldwell.
The aotion of the firemen in
regular meeting in the election of
officers of the fire department was
endorsed upon presentation of the
list of offtoers elected. They are:
W.A. Brown chief; P. A Hartline,
assistant chief; Harry Glover,
and Baldy Miller, drivers.
The purchase of 500 feet of hose
far the fire department was order
ed at once. This was done upen
request of Alderman H. E. Rufty,
chairman of the fire o:mmittee,
who stated th't the compary was
short several hundred feet of hose
as required uader the insuranoe
laws.
' In accordance with a call issued
some days ago several b'ds were
reoeived for the paving of West
Oounoil Street from Jackson to
Caldwell. These were opened bat
no awards were made on aoocunt
of the absence of Chairman Fish
er of the steeet committee.
It was stated by City Engineer
Webb that the oitv oould do this
paving for about II 10 per square
yard, but that a larger tnixr
would be needed. The city is said
to be in need of a lsrger machine
of this kind anyhow.
Chairman D. A. Beaver of the
building committee stated that he
had looked over several sites for
the new sohool building to be erect
ed in the western or scuthwestern
part of the city. Among these
was one near the Seoond Presby
terian Churoh, fronting on four
streetB. Several sites have also
been viewed on or near North
Main Street in the vicinity of
Porter's store for the looation of
another new sohool building. The
board was of the opinion that
options ba taken on a number of
sites for these various school
buildings and that the entire
board of aldermen go oat some
afternoon tn a body and look them
over.
The sewer committee reported
that the work of going over the
territory for the proposed sewer
extensioLS wss now in progress.
The overhead in that section of
the oity hall occupied by the fire
horses was ordered ceiled.
Alderman J. Ft Ludwick of the
police commit' ee, presented an
other resolution to abolish the of
fioe of captain of police and make
the salary of the head effioer of
the foroe $85 alio that the pa
trolm in showing the best record
aooording to bis reports to date,
be made sergeant. This motion
was seconded by Alderman J. E.
Hennessee, also of the polio com
mittee, but the metier was earned
ever until the eleotion of polios
takes place.
Hn election of eiay r.ffioials was
held and mult-id as follows: J.

Found to 6iY8 Protection lo Direct Exposure
to tfc Disease. .
The effioaof af typhoid vaooica
tion as a means of rendering im
munization totyphoid fever has
again been tested This time it
was by the health department of
New York city. .According to fig-
area gtvenf oujrby that depart'
ment, 8 101 persons had been di
reotly exposed to this disease and
only 534 of tbefnumber 'accepted
the immnniziugHreat.mM.t, receiv
ing two or three'dosei . This left
a remainder of 7,567 who either
refused to become immuniziid rr
reoe yed the firftJ.d.ose. only ; . Of
the 584 who tooJJhe immunizing
treatment, not oria contracted ty
phoid fever, bufctf the 7 567 who
did not take thejtreatmeu 161
or over 2 p- r oentf ook fever .
"These figures' says the State
Board of Health? reveal se veral
interesting facts regarding anti-typhoid
vaccination, In the first
place, they strickingly show to
what degrees vaccination, three
oomplete doses, is'a protection in
3ase of direot expesare to typhoid
Not one of the number exposed
who took the three treatments
took the disease. In the seoond
plaoe, il shows to what ixtent
vaccination may. prevent institu
tional outbreaks; or epidemics, of
typhoid ; and again, it all the more
emphasizes the importaut point
that if vaccination will protect
where infeotion is known to ex.st.
how much more it ;will protect
from insidious carrierjkand where
lnfeotien is not knjwii to exist.
"While it is exceedingly advis
able", says the Board, 4t to be
vaooinated against this disease cn
having .bsazoi2'io1jU.-jpr &
ing where the infection is likely
to be met, as on vacation tours or
outing expositieni, it is all the
more advisable to ba vaooinated
as a general precaution and as a-
nother form of life insuranoe.
Thenumterof the typhoid car
risrs have proved to be many and
no man can spot them till after
they have done their work."
President Visits D.vidson College
The visit of President and Mrs.
Wilson to Davidson College Satur
daj afternoon caused great gratifi
cation among the friends of that
institution. Naturally, the David-
sonians are very proud that the

students so distinguished a world
statesman, and the reoorgnition
given by this visit proves that
there is nothing mythical about
this relationship and that David
son nss an aciding place in the
insmory and in the affection of
President Wilson. The decision
to go to Davidson did not oome
altogether as a surprise, but was
most pleasing.

This territory promises a normal

will last about 10 days to two
weeks. The stand is exceptional

a good state of cultivation and
the spring weather, all through,
has been such that No. 1 stock
wil prevail in the shipments from
this section of Arkansas Surer
Valley. Owing to damage to the
Texas crop and tin present high
prices prevailing for Louisiana
spuds of $1.50 to $1.75 per 1 ushel
the growers in this locality have
reason to expect good prices for
