"The Catholic andl spoke in part ag follows: "Public opinion is not merely calm, deliberate judgment of educated and trained minds, but is the expres- sion of thought, or some mode ofl thought, that has taken hold of tha masses. The great aim of the fed-i eration is to tra.in this thoug-ht alonft' the lines of sane and sound princi- ples. The federation would accom- plish this mission by public lectures and the press. "C.reat, indeed, is the power ot tha press.' Have our people awakened to the fact? It would seem not. Tho federation does not mean a clerical party in nation, state or city. It is an nggregation of citizens tied to nf> political party, nor acting as one po- liii.-al party, but resting its powers upon the chastened and righteous pub- lie sentiment, for the common good ami Cod's eternal glory. Public senti- ment today is co-existent with thai public press. This puts federation squarely on the platform of furthering H Catholic press."
