And just here tile learned Doctor in- troduces in his conclusions a personal equation of his that might help to land him in an institution near Tacmna, should he ever come to this portion of the country.

Nothing has afforded us more pleas- cure this week than the letter from tev. W. D. Slmonds, who flatly denies the statements in the news item in the Times of February lst., in which he is made to say that Catholics as weil as Mormons should be closely ques- tioned in assuming public office. His reply _'ought to satisfy all who were misled by the item oz by our comment. His vzgorous language has the right ring in it, and we congratulate him on his sound and patriotic declarations. We herewith give his letter in fall: Seattle, Wash.,Feb. 9, 1904. Edztor, Tile Oatholic Progzass. Dear Sit :--I have received a copy of The Catholic Progress of Feb. 5th, 1904. I note your editorial, and arti- cle signed P. P. Carroll,relative to my reporcel remarks at Everett. Will you in simple justice give me space enough to say that I have been com- pletely and absurdly misrepresented ? I believe that every law abiding cit- izen, Catholic or Protastant, Mormon t t Infidel, duly elected to public office in the United States, should be per- mitted to discharge the duties of that office without question as to his reli- gious opiuions. More tllan that, I can even though a strong desire exists to fathom the depth of faith and myste. ry. It is a fact, however, that tile fash- ion is to delve into the abstract mysti- cisms independent of the guidance that religion offers and the result is dis- traction. When the mind wanders be- yoed the natural supports that exits in matter and philosophy it loses its poise and tails a prey to v:garies self-sug- gested or evolved througll the delirium o! intangibility. Tim promise to find is/rom Him whose grace is necessary to recognize the light and gift of faith. By seeking independent of the help of faith and humility we are lead astray by our self-reliance and are lost in the mazes of confusion that end iu helpless infidelity. Fundamental prin oiples must be the basis of reason and these must also guide the mind in its desire to coordinate and cooperate with God's graee in the search for knowledge. Will is the support of reason and drives it throug a difficult and dangerous labyrinths where to hesitate means to fail. T3 allow it to flag in its duty is sure to set one to dreaming empty dreams and cmmlud- ing before a conclusion is reached which is tenable. The undertsanding must be ever alert that nothing be in. troduced foreign to the subject matter under consideration and then we may be sure truth will follow our effort. Will, memory and understanding are called the three divine gifts because it is god like to exercise them. Again tim world is filled with news of war. Navies and armies are em- ploying the tactics of destruction. Peaceful industry is forgotten and do- mestic habits have given place to the hardships and dangers of tile sgirmish line. The sturdy Russlan and the wily Japanese are face to face landing blows that will determine who shall dominate the lands and seas of Eastern Asia. The patron of peace and arbi- tration of a few years ago has become tile same intolerant and aggressive op. presser history paints her and poor lit. tie Japan patriotically says "thus far and no farther." The symI:atldes of the world are with the little island empire and if occasion offers an open- ing she will not fight her battles alone. There are mighty interests at stake that cannot be compromised for the sake of peace. Intervention would be meddling when both parties are averse to even a suggestion. Russia presents a bad case to tim world utter having organized the Hague conference and proclaimed to every race and people that the day of peace and arbitration was at hand. Her euoroachments upon Manehur] during the Boxer uprising have been maiutaned by an army, to the dis. comfit apd danger of Japan. There prepare us for celesisl companionship wlmn life is done, iqot only every son of Maryland has been saddened this week by the news of the disaster that befell the beautiful city of Baltimore, but every thought- ful man and woman of America de- nlores the loss and suffering that must follow the suspension of enterprise and industry, the destruction of capital and equipments. Baltimore is of spe- cial interest to Catholics as it is the home of the only American Cardinal and a city full of religious interest as well as of beautiful churches. The Monitor of an Francisco came to us tids week in a new dress. This following so soon after the magnificent jubilee ,lumber is a credit to the sus- tained enterprise of its publishers.

Horace's "Quid dignum tanto ferret lue promissor hlatu?" in- voluutarily comes to mind at Ins words: "It shall be as impartialas the ii solar rays, as straightforward as the eagle's flight, aud so all-embracing as o comprehend this world and the next, things visible and invisible. things present and things to come." Whew  I [ In tim following lines, which we quote, Rev. Jones does, indeed, say something worth listening to about Spencer and the philosophers: "The heaviest criticism of all tiiat can be brought against Herbert Speu- cer and his philosopi)y is the fact that 'r. he shut up the grandest avenue of all truth, namely, that of revelation. No scientist or philosopher can with im- punity ignore tim facts of revelation. It is extremely unscientific to do so. All tim greatest scientists will accept facts, wltatever be their nature. Tile facts el revelation, the acceptance of the,n by the best men the world ires evar seen, and the effects thereof upon the lives of those who accept them, are real entities, which may be observ- ed by any man who has an eye to look at them ..... To talk all tile while about evolution, and to lose sight of the evolution of a perfect man, is a mark of a mind widoh cannot see any spiritual truth. The psychic man can- not receive tim things of the spirit of God, because they are spiritually dis. corned. ' About this very true criticism of Spencer we have only two things to say. The first is that this Protestant preacher is here stealing the thunder of tle Catholic Chuehthunder which Protestantism mght have made use of during tim past thirty years, but did not,'-- thunder, which the Catho- lic Church was, during tilat time, laughed to s0orn for using. In tha second place, it ill becomes a Protestant divine, hard on tim death of Spencer, to attack cue whosa teach- ings the Protestant religion almost universally embraced as an artzole of faith.

Like all religious teachers, who arc earnest and honest in their work, I condemn those religious dogmas tilat I believe to be false, and otmmpion those that I believe to be true, but I do nt attack, either oimrones or individuals. I beheva that the dogma of r.he Infal- lible Church, whether held by Catim. lie oMormon, is false, and to the ex- tent of its influence, harmful, but I should never desirq to take from any man the smallest of his rights as a fel- low citizen because ]m held to a differ- ent opinion.
