MID-SUMMER SALE Upholds in Note to German Governor Their Refusal to Aid Deportations Following the condemnation by the German authorities in Belgium of nineteen Malines priestH to pay fines ol 100 marks each because of the refusal to aid in compiling lists of unemployed Belgien workers for use in deportation of men to Germany, Cardinal Mercler sent a letter of protest to Baron von Huehne, then acting governor-general, defending the action of the priests and pointing out that there was a limit to the exercise of temporal power. The text of this letter, which was written in February and briefly referred to at that time, appeared May 16 In La Metropole, a Belgian newspaper now published in London, and reads as follows: "Archbishopric of Ms lines, "February, 1917. "To the Governor General. Sir: "Your excellency has intrusted to the chief of your political department, M. Boron von de Lancken, the task of writing to inform me that you bto at a loss to explain the attitude of the clergymen of Malines who have considered it their conscientious duty to decline the offer to stamp their cards of identification. "It seems to you that their attitude Js not in accord with this passage in my letter of Nov. 29, 1916: 'The prleats, who know the common people better than any one else, would be valuable helpers to the recruiters; why is their assistance refused?" "The military governor haB sentenced each one of these clergymen to a fine of 100 marks, and your excellency declares that, to your lively egret, you can only ratify this sen- tence. "The initiative of the clergy of Malines was, indeed, taken in full consciousness, as your excellency supposes, and the reasons therefore were presented in writing to the district chief. We do not wish to deny that the letter's intentions toward certain social categories may have been kindly, but his enticing procedure toward the bourgeois class was menacing for the working class "For the purpose of organizing with more system and certainty the levy of a contingent of the Belgium population destined to serve, willingly or through compulsion, the economic interests of the enemy and, consequently, indirectly his military interests, the occupying power had demanded of the communal authorities the list of unemployed workers. The councils of the Belgian communes, realizing in the ninjoriiy of cases that they were in duty bound to safeguard the integrity of the nation, refused tb furnish, under the classification of unemployed, a list of free citizens destined to be converted tlio next day Into a list of outlaws, A Roundabout Method "Blocked by this refusal, the military power tried a roundabout way. The idle men not being registered the only thing left to do was to try those not idle. That which could not bo obtained through a direct procedure of positive enrollment was sought through an Indirect method by graciously offering to stamp the cards of those who were to bo spared and thua, ail the result of subtraction, ranging on one Bide tho category of idle men for deportation. "The threats of the mayors were followed by enticements to the middle class citizens Both these attempts of the military power had the same object: To induce the Belgians to cooperate in the organization of the deportation of their brothers. Both were intended to have the same result-to Hiiatch a class of citizens, as guiltless and free as all tho other Belgian citizens, from their homos and force them Into exllo and working for tho enemy. "That all the future beneficiaries of this stamped card may not have BEACHING A TORPEDOED BRITISH TRANSPORT . -'-J. y::''":-:'.\: Wi-\"c;;*:* This remarkable photograph shows a British transport on the rocks aftor being torpedoed by a German submarine in the Eastern Mediterranean. Tho vessel was run on the rocks in an effort to beach her. The men can be seen sliding down the ropes hanging from tho vessel. At the stern is a lifeboat hanging by the painter w.hilc some of the members of the crow and the sailors can bo seen bobbing about tho water. suspected the hook beneath the bait Is conceivable. That some man of the world, loaded with family obligations, may have considered less carefully the effect of their action and in good faith have confined their sentiment of national solidarity within more narrow limits, is not to bo made a grievance against them. Hut the priest, for whom temporal intorests do nt)t count In comparison with those of eternity; tho priest who, as a preacher of the gospel and an olllcial representative of Christian right, would blush nt not making his personal conduct conform with his highest pledges; tho priest, as tho protector of tlio weakest, lias a cloarer vision of his moral obligations, and Is able to Judj;e if he would not ho fall- ing in his duty if he did not extend fraternal devotion beyond the strict requirement of the common law. "These, monsieur the governor general, are the lofty considerations that guided tho clergy of Malines, and of which your excellency may have found a glimpse In the lotter addressed under date of Dec. 24 to the district chief. That is what made me write as follows to his excellency M. Karon von Kissing, In my letter of Nov. 2!): "'It. would be iniquitous to make tlio whole weight of tho deportations fall upon the working classes. The middle classes must have their part in tho sacrifice-however cruel it may be, and just becauso it is cruel-that tlio occupying power Imposes upon the natidu. A great many members of my clergy have asked mo to beg for them a place in the van.^of the persecuted. I register their offer ami submit it to you with pride.' "Tho lines that your excellency takes from this same letter of Nov. 29 harmonize with the attitude of the clergy of Malines and with all my correspondence regarding tlio deportation. "In my letters of Oct. 19 and Nov. 10 I had protested witli all the energy that love of justice and charity was able to give mo against tho kidnapping of thousands of our fellow countrymen. NovortholoMS, fearing that tho military power would r<"naln de:if j to those protuslH and to ^^objurga- tions, 1 added this m,^ natural thought: 'If, nevertheless, you persist in the injustice, nt least allow our priests to modify the evil that, your violence does to our people, accept their co-operation in order to save that which, according to your own Instructions, Iniquitous us thoy may bo, may still bo saved.' "Hut you have not wanted that. You have removed your operations from tin.' control of I hone who, through their social vocation and their dally contact with the common people, were qualified to exorclso it. "You have Indicated even to me Unit I w;ih siot to convey a word ot comfort to ilioso being forced to leave to miller your rulo, and 1 lmvu re-lipoctod tho order. Cannot Put God's Word In Chains "But there- is a bander, M. Governor General, before which military force halts and behind which tlio right is inviolably sheltered. From that side of tho barrier it is we, representatives of moral authority, who Bpeak aB masters. Wo cannot, we do not wish to allow the Word of God to be put in chains. "Tho military governor has had tlio hardihood to sentence each ono of nineteen priests to pay a fine ot 100 marks for not having wished to beno-flt by a privilego which their co�-science forbade them to ncoept. "Very well; they will pay the 1W marks from their modest salaries, or, if thoy do not have the means to settlo it, perhaps they will pay with their liberty for their inability to satisfy you. "Very well agRln! I know tho souls of our priests well enough to predict that they will remain patient, Just tho same. Thoy will drink to tho dregs tho cup of hlttornoss you have forced to tho lips of a people wh# never wished you anything but gooi. "Wo await our vengeance in patience. "I inn not speaking of our earthly vengeance. Wo havo that already, for the regime of occupation that you forco us to undergo is despised by everything that is decent in the wholo world. I am speaking of the judgment of history, of the iuoscapablo punishment of tho God of JuBtico. "And to you who aro, if I am well Informed, n son of tho Church of Christ equally with the most humblo of our workmen, I dare to add that, you are loading your conscience witli a heavy burden in covering with your high authority a military decision that likens an act of Christian and pastoral abnegation to n crime. "D. J. CARDINAL MIQRCIKR. 'Archbishop of Malines." Kind to Father Little Miss, three yearn old, very observing, called on her grand aunt, tho other day. "Como again," mild grand aunt, In farewell. Father next morning said "Goodbye, Little Miss." "Goodbye. Come again," Elm implied In poljto tones.
