The review declares that the ta.sk of the church has become immeasurably harder "because of tho utter lack of discipline and religious fasting among the people. Our youth, with their easily gotten money in their pockets, swollen with sinful pride." it continues* "are entirely contemptuous of restraint and continence. Confusion reigns la numberless of tho administrative government departments as to what is right and wrong The higlieat law seems to be profiteering and amusement.' The review condemns contemplated polygamy, proposed from Coiogne. i which proposition the documents take f quite seriously. This attitude is in-i teresting because It is recalled that ' the proposaT at the tiiue it was made I was represented by eminent Ger-; mans as a mere freak unworthy of ' serious notice. The review, which throughout is couched in the most pessimistic tone, expresses the fear of irreparable damago to the e.visting evangelical state church unless it succeeds in overcoming the indifference j of the people lo religion.

They have watched with jiride and admiration the uiJ-wavering courage wrth which the brave soldiers of Italy, in company with Franco-British troops, havo repelled an offensive conducted with the whole strength of the Auatro-Hungarian army.

Ont.. to Major General Mcwbnrn. minister of militia, protesting against the action of tho military police In visiting the Novitiate and parading the Inmates in searching for alleged evaders of the Military Service Act. I''ather Bourque said the ptirty was (n charge of Captain McAuloy, deputy provost marshal and the visit took place at 9:35 p.m. on June 7.

He offered lo accompany the officer to the rooms of the Novices or to .summon them all to the refrantory for e.vnmination and Captain McAuley chose the latter alternative. Rev. leather Power, superior-general of tlio institution, said in an interview that tho statement that 'there were 22 .Novices liable to service under the .Military Service Act was absolutely false. He said: "It a young man came here to escape- military service he would be simply jumping out of the frying pan into the fire. Moreover, lUe religious superiors would not become parties to such deception.
