Yet here i- the dictum of the Church Time#, in regard to remarriage of the innocent party. “It i£ com^tent to any clergyman to consider on the gr»3unda of social ex-pedieocf, the propri-tv of allowing the iriDocent parr to re-marry. That is a different thing from pretending that toia right eiis s within the Chu^ rch.” Now “social expediency” no lonbt ha» lU claimes in regard 11 all human laws—it should be considered —but to affirm that >fjc al expediency can over ride a divine law; can make Xhai right which we a’l know to be wrong; is to give to social exediency as equal value with divine command' 'meot; in other wor Js, it is to be guilty of gr«»s.- impiety. And now we eni’er upon a new phase of the dilemma, which, to Anglicana, mav seem but normally inconvenient,* but to Catholics must appear di-astrous and overwhelming. The Anglican Bishop grante<l his 1 »*ence for a re-raarnage. All Anglican B .«iliops, for thirty years, have a wavs done -•*. hat is the Angfic^n Hector or curator to do, in the fa c o‘ this episcopal mandamus? Let us ask the Church Times to infonu us. “The Bishop’s license f .r remarriage of a divorced per= m. innt»ceut or guilty not only carru- with it n«* authority* but c.ijgbi t - be ab-'* utety ignored bv liiec’«»'rgyman U* w h .ra it i- presented .

(2) If the bi**h"p Wlieves that re-iiiart iage i.- immoral, he commands toe doing of hat he knows i»» be. a crime; if he believes that re-marriage not immoral, he denies the indis--olubility of Chri-tian marriage. 3.) if the clergyman who per-fcrma the Service approves of div«jrc»*, he is t*o say- our authority the Church Time- in antagonism to the teaching of the Christian Church; and if the cie gyman does not approve of divorce, but regar*U re marriage as a mortal sin he not only has faiDi.-elf to do what is wicked, but he has to impute the whole blame of the wickedness to his own Bi-h »p. We hardly know for whom we ought to feel the most pity; the poor Bishop, who either believes what is wrong, >r else obeys the Sute in preference to obeying*God, or the i>oor Re» tor or Curate who despises himself and hi* BUhop, despises the Cnurch in which he is prt*«umed to minister faithfully, and plays the coward, the Erastian. the hypocrite. This difficulty about divorce is only one around the career of the An glican clergy; yet it serves to bring into prominence the fact of the total abeence of anpematoral authority in the Church of Our Land, We are perpatoally being told bv the High Church party that they alone are the true Catholic Church in this country, the ancient^ Catholic Church, the represen tail vea, the heirs, of the pri in iiv Id» il. Imagine a primit vo I aituil'u* pne-t '-r BiJ-liop.—oraCaili-»»^ic prie-t <r Bishop of any peri“d,— ipiieiiy submilluig to the pagan laws »»l an iieretical State, an»l meekly oh» ying »• >nipl*-te subversion ot the Divine Law meekly conforming to a profane enactment in regard t<» mar iagel II this b* the way in which the Rituali-i- think to prove ihetn.-elve* “a Tiie branch of the Cat olic Cnure.i,” they have the childi«h delu'ion all to themselves. Even the D s»enter« make aport of such pusil'aniin'ly. Either marriage is indi soluble, or it «s not. If i be indi soluble, Anglican Bi-bop an i clergy OQ¿hi to hide themselves for shame for their ba-*e connivance; if it be not io»ii«soluble,—that is, An-glicanly or High Chuch y not indis» soluble—then Church of England has no more pieteoaion to be a “t^barcb” that bad the sect of the Alhigenses or of the WaJdenses. It w.iuld be idle to dis uss the impiety of su»'h a stale of things; it seems wiser to re^rd it as a Divine Lesson to all Anglican, to show them what must come from persistent scbiem. Inconsistency afUT incoii* 8 stency crowd upon the Establishment, yet Ang icans d > not seem to have eyes to see. At last we have the icrrib'e spectacle of t e whole bench of Bi-bops, and certainly three fourths <»f R*"ciors and Curates bowing down bi'fore the graven image of a pagan law, and nut so much as even indulging in a feeble pro'est, Toi- laii spectacle outght to l>e a lesson to earnest men; a Divine Entreaty to come »>ut of schism into truth. B. A- 0XF»»RI>.The Turret Ship Miautoiiioh- The recent cruUe of the L’nited States steamer Miaotonomoh to Annapolis, Md., and return, says the New* Yerk Herald^ was a success in this, ihit it brought >o I ght all the g^d an»J ba*l qiia«iti*‘S of this type of vessel, and she will now serve as sn object lesson in the construction »)f other ships of her class. One fact seem» to have been clearly demonstrated to the thorough satisfaction of all on board, and that is that nec-ry in going from one port to another. There are two very good reasons for this sUtemcnl—first, because of the absolute inability to fight her guns at sea, and second, because of the great di-<5omtort and |»08itive danger to the health of all on boar 1. Ilwill be remembered from previous aoooun s of the ship that the muzzle of ihe guns when leveled are only about five feet above ttie water line. Now, if the ship were aste^ ly platform, which simply rose and fell with the waves or swell, this would be all t ght, but such is not the case. In an ordinary groun»l swell or moderate sea, such a;* w^s encounter-eii going down along the coast, the ship rolled from lO to 15 degrees, shipping a sea with every roll, which dashed completely over the turrets, and which w'ould have wholly buried the muzzle of the guns if tney had been trained level abeam or eve a at an elevation,filling the guns with water and thus preventing their being tired. Another reasi>n why the guns cannot be used at .sea is that in order to fire them the turrets must be availa-b e, which is not the case under the pr sent conditions. I’pon g ling to sea four heavy brass choi*ks are inslrted between the turret an»i the deck a'^ound each turret. Then the* apron over this space i.s screwed down tight and all the joints are calk-e<i and filled with paraffine and a woo»L*n batten is nailed over all, thn- effectually securing the turret both from revolving and from work-in i¿ irora side to si*ie. Besides this, heavy wooden }»ort bucklers are put around the chase of the guns over the {Mirts and tlie space between is thor. «►ughly calked. All these things are a'jsoluiely necessary to prevent the berth deck from being Hooded, and ev»*n they are not sufficient. A con-si»ierable length of lime is necessary t'* remove the-c, and they must all be removed in order to use either the guns or the turrets. The second reason w’hy the ships of the monitor type should not be sent to sea—the discomfort of all hands can scarcely be imagined unless it has been seen. Notwithstanding all the efforts that have been made to j»revent the wat?r from gaining access to the place damp or wet and leaves no place for the men to rest below. Furthermore, all the hatches have to be closed and battened down im-mediately on leaving smooth water, and the heat from the engine and fire rooms raises thh temperature of the turret chambers to from 90 to lOO Fah., making it almost impossible for any one to remain bilow. The artificial ven'.ilation, although far superior to that on the old monitors, is not sufficient to carry off the hot air and supply its place with fresh c>ol air from above. In the turret chambers themselves there are no exhaust ventilators, so that althorgh fresh ah* is being oon-stantly forced in, it soon becomes as héatea as that already there. No ona can remain oa the spar deck while at sea, as^ every wave washes completely over the ¿eck, several fet I de p, breakiníT over tba turrets and throwing the spray high over the forward bridge. Even while lying at Huchor in Che apeake Bay seas came aboard, washing over the high hatch combiiijift and neceiAsitating tae c»o-ing of everyth'ng fore and aft. The only place left ífor the men to stay is the hu.*ricane d ck, which being small and the space largely tilled up with chests, hatch, v niilators and the smokestack, is very crowded and uncomf rtable w-hen n arly 100 men get on it. But the people of the e gineei’s force have a much har«ler time than lha deck hands. The temperature of the eogine room ranges from 120 to 135 degrees, while that of the fire room is general y about 146 The ventila ion of the tire room is fair, while that of the engine room is al* most nothing. The' machinists and en.iineers have 11 stand on the hot iron platform above the engines in order lo control the icversing gear and valves, and there is scarcely room enough above them to allow them to stand erect bjtween the beams. After Stan ting a four hour watch in such a p ace it is absolutely necessary for the men to have some place to go for rest and fresh air, but, as has been seen, this is very hard to find. Conse<iuenlly a numbor of the men have been prostrated and utterly unable to continue their work. No one questions the ability of the ship to go to sea as far as her sea— wortbines» is c -ncerned, but it is certainly considered unseleijs, tOi subj^| every one on boa d to euch discomforts, e-ipecially when she could never be of any service in a fight at sea. A number of changes will be recommended w’hich, il carried out will greatly improve the comfort of all bands. Some of these w'ill be to the ve -lilation by adding more blowers, by cutting a large hatch over the engine room and by putting in ventilators in different part of the ship.—iScientiJ'ic American.MORE OF MORGAN’S WORK. Nkw VV'iiatcom, W.\sh., July, ’92. Kd. Catholic News:—.The Luiuipt Indians, w'hom 1 visit every six weeks or so, have a large day school, averaging more than 80 boys and girls, and taught by a capable Catholic teacher. An inspector visited the school last week and said that r>u July 15 one ot the largest pupils of this school would be taken away and sent to an Oregon Indian Indus» trial Training School, which is far from baing in the odor of sanctity. Morals are said to be very low in that school, too much freedom among the sexes and followed by many breaches against chastity. Graduates of this school are generally proud, haughty, jKilished heathens. The Lumrai Indians, being all good, practical Catholics, are not willing to let their children go to their inevitable perdition. They a-e threatened w ith force to take their children away and they do not know what to do. I think the Government, or rather Preacher Morgan, wants to excite these ¡ eaceful and industrial Indians to resistance, in order to have a pretext to open this mujh coveted Reservation to the surround-ing greedy whites. Last fall a drunken white man was supposed to be killed by an Indian from this Reservation. The ladiao was tried but could not be convicted. When the Indian was allow^ed his freedom the whites tried to kill him and he had to leave his home to save his life. He ir ed to come home lately but he was again hunted by the w’hites and had again to flee for his life. In the meantime. I understand that a numerously signed ptitition w'as sent to the Indian authorities in Wash ngion, D. C., to either prevent the Indians from leaving their Reservation or to drive them away from it. So if Morgan can manage to have tha Indians resist tnis brutal order of taking away the children by force from their parents, it wull be a plausible pretext to either exile or exterminate these good peaceable Indians. I can’t see how any power on earth has a right to take aw^ay children from their parents when they have a good school where they can be made 10 Ibecome good Christians and useful members of society. But I suppose these poor Indians have no rights w’hich Mr. Morgan should respect. He has mi^ht and brute force on his side and that is all he requires. Consequeatly I do not see how consistent Catholics can so stultify ihetBselves as to cast their votes to continue Morgan’s brutal, bigoted rule for four years more. If the rascals are not ignominiously turned out from power this fall there will not be an Indian child left in a Catholic school four years hence. Then, Mx Editor, agitate the In. dian school\question in season and out of season in your able paper, till every Catholi^ is obliged for very shame to cast out the incubus represented by Morgan and his clique. Write one your forcible editorials on the above suibject and urgently request all Catholic papers to spread it broadcast over the land (before the November elect.’ons.) Yours most respectfully. Rev. J.B. Boulet ! IRISH LASSIES AT THE FAIR. I AH visitors to the World’s Fair will doubtless want to inspect the Iiish vidaiie wnich is beingarraoged under the auspit es of the Countess of Abeideen and Mrs. Ernest Hart. The letter gives the following outline of what it will contain: “We shall have seven cottages in which peasant girls and lads from Donegal and elsewhere will be seen at work, weaving, spinn ng, dyeing, «Pjigg'Dg» carving, etc. The girls will look very pretty in Concemara r d petticoats, fishwife skirts and blouses, and scarlet c oaks. In the first cottage will be a precise model of a cottage in Donegal, with undreea-ed walls of granite, with a hooded fireplace and dresser full of bright crockery; a girl will be seen dyeing and iipinning • ur fagpou^, Haoq-^^d^^ Hearth Hómespans,thje wo >1 ot which she get from tne lichens and h atber of her native bog outside. There will be an imitatiou prat fire, and on this the dyer will from time to time place her iron potato pot, and pro-cee 1 to dye the wool. This opera* tion is cirtaiii to prove immenself attractive to sight-Seers, and, as well as the carding, spinning and bobin* tiding, which Will be shown her, is an extremely interesting process. “Ill the second cottage there will be linen weaving and embroidering of the famous KelD Art Embroidery; whilst linen damask weaving on a Jacquard handloom and fringe knotting will go on in the third oottage. 'Btotoween ibi« * a*d Wie next- - cottage there will be a model dairy, in which dairy-maids will be at work churning and butter-making. I can assure our American cousins they will have a chance of some good butter, as we shall send over some of the world-famed Kerry cows, which will be stab ed at the rear, Tiiere will also be a pleasant, cool spot here where visitors can rest and drink iced milk. *,In the fourth cottage, which is under the ♦-special care of the Irish Industries Association, every description of Irish lace will le shown. There will be a Limerick lace woiker at her frame, the Torchon lace worker at the pillow, the n »merou8 varieties of .point lace, »nd so forth. “¿iprit/gtiig and veiuing, whichwre* employed in the produclt n of the beautiful hemstitched handkerchiefs of Belfast, will be shown in the next cottage. The girls of Down are especially noted for their exquisite and delicate work. We have not quite defiuitely decided about the two remaining cottage, but we shall probably sliow in the seventh the wood-carving industry in Irelanl,which has reached a really remarkable degree of development when one remembers the workers and teachers are peasant lads. You should see the set of owls carved by some of my own bovs for Lady Aberdeen last year. The ex. pression of the owU’ faces, as well as the execution, was excellent. O.her features of our Irish industrial vill* ages will be a replica of Donegai ca->tle, an old well, and other Ínteres, ting Celtic memorials.

When the collapse in the Argentine republic and Uuruguay turned the flood tide of southern Europe in this direction the American ports were overrun with the brown races of Sicily and the Italian peninsula, and some of the prophets began to predict that the American people w'ould be Datinized. But the Italian immigration Is already decreasing. The report of the bureau of statistics shows that the number of Italians arriving in this country during the nlae months ending with March was 80,194,. while during the corresponding period of the year preceding it was 88,-035, and still greater for the year before that. The feature of the movement frooa ^uasope is the enormous grqwth»f the Russian immigration. I’his is due to two causes—the increasing discontent throughout the empire and the Jewish persecution, the latter in paj> ticular being eifectiva. As a source of human supply Russia noW ranks next to Germany. During the last nine-months we received from that country 63,319 immigrants, which was more than double the number for the equivalent period preceding. A few ^years ago the immigration from Russia was so small that it was not •worth-'mentioning. But there is one country Irom which the human stream is not subject to spasmodic increas»»s or rtrrrgianrTi On the contrary, it flows steadily bn with a gradually swelling volume, and the characteristics of that land, next to those of parent England, will always have the greatest influence upon 4he' United States. The German nation has long furnished us more immigrants than any other, and even the great Russian spurt has not been able to pass it. The German movement, which began a half century ago, has been throughout that time unchecked, and is now larger than ever before. During nine months the total of arrivals from the German empire was 76,128, and the Germans from Austria, 20,497, this being an increase of about seventeen per cent, in one year. The immigration from England, Scotland and Wales does not change much from year to year, but remains close to 60.000 annually. While in certain years Russia, Italy and other countries may go ahead, yet the island of Great Britain remains, next to Germany, our chief source, of..humau'Supply. * Contrary- t«^* the general belief, the immigrants from Great Britain are much more numerous than those from Ireland. There have been periods when there was an enormous influx from Ireland, but for many years it has averaged not more than 80.000 annually. Obviously the Scandinavian blood—and a vigorous rod blood it is—is destined to figure conspicuously in the composition of the Ameritan of the future. The arrivals from Sweden, Norway and Denmark are next in importance to those from Great Britain and Germany, and exceed by one-fourth those from Ireland. The Bohemian and Hungarian immigration is still large, but is increasing very little, while that from Poland has augmented considerably. On the whole, after examining the flgut*e8 for many years, there is'no reason to change the opinion of earlier investigators that the American race will be essentially a conoposition of the Teutonic people of northern and central Europe. It will be Anglo-German, w'ith a Celtic dash, and it is too late for the Italian, Hungarian or Polish bloods to have any effect upon it.—Louisville Courier JournaL TALES OF THE ROAD. The Darlns l>eeds of Desperate Hlshwaj-men. A group of men were lolling in the loungers’ corner of a San Francisco hotel. Each was reading a morning paper. Each had his paper open at the page describing the robbery that startled Berkeley Saturday. “1 cannot help having an admiration for such bold thieves,” said a very respectable member of the gathering. “Not,” he added, “that I approve stealing in any form, but if one is bound to loot a strong box it is more manly to do it at the point of a pistol than to sneak into the victim's confidence and then betray it.” One by one the readers threw their papers aside, and without difficulty disposed of bandits and plunder in the remarkably short order that always prevails on such occasions. Then they grew reminiscent. “The pluckiest robber I ever heard of,” said a Denverite, “was the one who made Dan Moffatt give up twenty-one thousand dollars about three years ago. The story'became familiar enough, but the sequel has been generally squelched. A young fellow walked into Moffatt’s private office at the First National) bank, covered Moffatt with a pistol, displaying a bottle of harmless oil that he said was nitro-glycerine, made Moffatt fill out a check and then get it cashed and hand him the money. He specified just what he wanted, demanding one thousand dollars in golcU a ten thousand dollar bill, and smaller bills. When Moffatt went to the paying teller for the cash the visitor was just behind him with the revolver close to his ribs, but hidden by an overcoat. Ha^ng secured the money, the robber backed out of the door and disappeared. “Did they ever catch him? Well, now, that is kard to state. There is some mystery about it. * Some people did not think thair Moffatt wanted him caught. But a big row was made about it, and rewards offered. In perhaps a year, after numerous arrests and releases, it was announced that a prisr oner in jail in Clay county, Mo., charged with horse stealing, had confessed to being Moffat’s robber. The bank teller went there and identified him. The Denver chief of police told me, how-•ver, that the prisqiier was a pretender, and that he did not believe that he ever been in the state of Coloradjpu. Then the chap went crazy. ’’ You canÁói try a lunatic for robbery, 'and' the phb-U^jdoe«^¿ot^¿ee£^^trockjdf_^hé^|^^ prisoners of Clay county, Mo. So the matter rests.” The Denver man had the floor. “Y’ou remember, don’t you, the way Senator Tabor's gold bricks from the Vulture mine in Arizona were stolen? He got the property along in the ’80s. Tho output in the form of a brick left tlie mine evei*y two weeks. One of these bricks was worth about eight thoiis;»»d dollars. The foreman thought he could carry the treasure himself, but a lone highwayman fooled him; got away with the game, too. He was aftei-wanl eaugh i in the C5ty of Mexico and the brick recovered. The foreman took some assistants with him next time, and on this trip ran into an ambush. One assistant was killed and the other wouu»l-ed.^ One of thq robbers was hui’t, and caught later nursing his .wound in a hnt. Tlie other robber was picke^l up in a lonely canyon, dead, a Imllet through his head, ^ a revolver in his hand, and the brick on his breast. Must have been a grimly sarcastic cnss. “I notice you are having a good many stage robberies here. Used to have them in Colorado. Abolished the rob-baries first and afterward the stagfc But. speaking Of: robberies reminds me of. one highwayman who could give your,Black Bart points. He had held np stage after stage in sontlxern Colorado; taken everything in sight. He always gave orders' as though he had a whole posse in his gang. Vviieh’ he was captured it^ was found that he was a Cvippie w*eighing about one hundred pounds, and nerwer had any confederates: except dummies armed with broomsticks. He’s in the government.pen at Detroit now. ” “What’s the use of resisting when a man has the drop on you?” This from a fierce-looking individual whose piercing eyes would have scared the ordinary highwayman. “All nonsense, I say. Now in the Redding robbery Messenger Montgomery resisted. What did he get? Why, a system full of lead. He didn’t save the treasure. He didn’t do liimself any service, and the good opinion of the company is nothing to a dead man. I say it’s all right to give up when a gun is at your head. There’s nothing else to do. ¡Shoot your highwayman when he runs if you t?an, but look out for your own hide. You’ll never get another. ” “Are the authorities severe upon stage-robbers in California?” queried a Philadelphian. “Oh, hot very,” answered the tierce-looking one. “In the first place, they usually do not catch them.

But I don’t mean to be personal, no indeed.” And the quiet man looked apologetically about to see if he had hurt any one’s feelings.—San Francisco Examiner.    _ A DESPERATE YOUNG MAN.
