A Source of Great Sorrow. "The struggle between capital and labor in the Uinted States is a source of great sorrow and uneasiness to me just now," he said. "It is not only a serious interruptiion of productive on- orgies of th country, but it is a pro- found social upheaval--it is contusing our life. "Here weare on this continent en- gaged in thethe supreme experiment of free government in the presen0e of thewhole world, in the pr#sence of hist'ory0 The enemies ot our institu- tions can snap their fingers at the re- public if we show that we cannot gee- ten ourselves reasonably. We claim tbat we have liberty without license and authority without despotism. I do not want to live to see that claim discredited. "The workingmen of America should realize how deeply and directly they are intreestedin preserving item in- jury the reputation of the United States as a land where liberty and law go hand in hand. "The corporations, the employers, are powerful and united. They have the government behind them to protect their rights. This is as'bit should be. "The workingmen have formed un. ions for mutual improvement and protection. They are as much enti- tled to combine for business purposes as are their employers. The fact is undeniable..They are equally entitled to have their rights defended by the government. Rights of Non Union Men. "The third factor in this situation s the non.union workingman. He, too, hashis rights which nmst be maintained. "He has the right to enter a union or stay out of it; to sell his labor when and where and for what price he pleases. "When the union labor man denies that right he denies a liberty which he claims for himself. "The union men say ifiey cannot succeed in their struggle for good wa- ges and better conditiions so long as there are workingmen outside of their organization who can bc used by em- ployers o break strikesthat the un- ions are for the benefit of all who toil. "Then they should give non-union men an opportunity to freely choose. "They should get members by a- traction, and not by compulsion. The vexy fact that a man feels tllat he is not free to enter or sm.y out of a uu- ion may be enough to repel him. Loves Freedom better than Anyttiing. "The American workifigman loves his freedom ]cetter ttian anything else. That is one of his finest traits. He resents anytMng tha means compul. sionof his rights. It kis time for thougtful labor union men to recog- nize this fact. "I am strongly opposed to the boy- cott and to [every other form of op- pression  mployed againsht free labor. "The whole force of oragnized soci- ety, all the powers',of governn,ent, hould be employed to insure to every man in this country his right to toil in his own way and under conditions of his own choice. "It is difficult to indicate a solution of the labor question. Arbitration is one way, and a good way. "But whatever the solution may be, it mut be one which will recognize individual liberty. "No man must be allowed to oppress nnother man in this country." THE LAST CRUISE IN THE OLD YACHT. By D. F. Mc Donald. The morning broke. Far away ov. er the perfect blue of the Irish Chan- nel they could see the "Emerald Isle," its low hills looking dark and purple in the distant e. Rising to the long heave of *lie bil- lows the'yacht skimmed on; ripping urrows in the liquid bosom of the gethcr far across the Austern ocean to a strange land he was soon to go. Eveu Angus, bright Angus of the curly hair and sparkling eye, the life and soul of the party, was today strangely silent. He too was ahnost to bid fare- well to Bonny Scotland to wear the 'Middies" blue and gold with brave Gastlereigh, whose pennant floated over the sunny Medxtcrranean. Garceful as a hind the gallant bark sped on. The rugged coast of Sect- land was rising clearer as the light of tim ascending sun threw a more mel- low glint over the deep blue of eael rolling wave. The voyage was nearly done, far across the moaning harbor bar tim dy- ing breeze had wafted them. In silence they beheld Jack's beautiful sub- urban home lying off the starboard bow in the 'light of the setting sun. Suddenlyp Angus' clear baritone.struck "A life on the ocean wave,.ma A home on the rolling deep." but lighter thoughts refused to come for they were about to bid good.bye alas forever to their dear old yacht, tim idol of their boyhood, the companion of many a happy oruise even when manhood was dawning, before care had dulled the brilliance of life's morning. Poor Jack is now S limping on Dargi ridge,amid the wilds of northen India. The blue waves closed over young An- gus, for he stood with the noble three hundrd that followed the guns of the victorious to a watry grave, On the coast of Spain. Frank is roaming in Alaskau wilds; and the bones of the old yacht are resting beyond reach of the Atlantic surges on the rock bound hores of Lewis. THE PRESBYTERIANS AND THE POPE. Editorial Commeut by The Leader on Action of the Recent P resby- the terian Assembly. I The Holy Father is no longer Anti- christ or tile Man of Sin. At any rate, the sour-faced elders of the Presbyte- rian sect will apply these vile and vulgar epithets to the Pope no more." It all haPl)ened at the General Assem- bly of the disciples of Knox and Cal- vin held in Los Angeles. The Presbytterians, or, at least, a large number of them, have held the opinion for some years that the West- minster Confession was out of date. Of course, many of the dominies were opposed to revision of the creed,but at length a majority was won over to the side of the proposed alteration. That the change, so far as the Pope is con: corned, should have taken place will seem all the more remarkable when it is remembered that the Moderator of this General assembly was the notori- ous Coyly, now of Denver 'but well known in Oakland ill A.P.A. days. Tim Pzpe was not the on]'y benefici- ary cf the Genreal Assemby. In fact, tim whole human race was "accorde--'l some gracious favors. The article on the horrible doctrine of Predestination is explained so as to signify that no one will be damned unless on account of sin. Cnildren dying in infancy, who wexe formerly [damned by the Presbyterians. will in future be inial- libly saved. The preachers :are fox'- bidden to marry persons who have been divorced on grounds other than those recognized in the Westminster Confession of Faith. It is needless to say that the changes made by the General Assembly !n their doctrine of Predestination, Infant Damnation and Divorce do not put them in harmony with the unchanging Church of God. But the Pope is not let entirely alone. The modified article concerning "him reads as follows: "The Lord Jesus Christ is the only head of the Church, and the claim of any man to be the Vicar of Christ and the head of the Ghuret is unscriptur- al, without warrant in fact, and is usurpation dishonoring to She Lord Jesus Christ." It was intended that this declara- tion should include not only the Pope, but also the King of England, the Era. peter of Germany and the Tsar of ocean and scattering a cloud of spray Russia,who are the heads of tlmir see- as size gallantly clove the curling oral national Churches. The eneral white caps, that were begininng to purpose of the revision was to bring swish past on either hand. Ploudly the Confession of Faith more into as, she held aloft her great wlfite cloud of .cord with modern thought and the hu- billowing canvas, that stood out round mane spirit of the age m which wc and "taut"; while with the roll of each wave it swun$ clear as sculptured marble against the gray of the mrning SRV. Jack was asleep in the little cabin, prhaps dreaming of India's romantic slhores; fpr a graduation from "Sand- burst" had wou hint a commission in the regiment of his fathers--the 'iGor- live. We cannot say that the effort of the General Assembly was a sucoeess. The new creed is just as false as the old. It is also 3ast as ridiculous. The Presbyterian sect in America is a lineal descendant of the Scotch Kirk. Nobody looks for a sense of humor in the child ofsuch a parent. Sydney Smith's bitter joke is as true today as it was ahnast a century ago. We do not know how King and Em- peror nad Tsar will be affected by this latest decree. It should be a compli- ment to them to be counted in the same class its Leo XIII.. As for tim Pope, we fear that this modification of the Presbyterian creed in Lis regard will not add to his years. But if news of the proceedings of the Los Angeles Assembly is ever carried to him,. ill fancy wecan sec a broad smile on the genial face of the saiut, the sage, the statesman, the poet, who is the Vicar of Christ on earth, and the successor of th3 Chief of the Apostles and the first Head of the Church.  UNPRECEDENTED FAVOR. Conferred Ul)on Catholic Student by Yale College. New Haven, Conn., June 7.- Thomas Henry Curran, a member of the senior class in the Academy De- partmnt of Yale, was buried from St. Mary Catholic church yesterday after an ',iimpressive service. Curran died of tuberculosis at the home of iris! parents in Lake Place, this city. Today it became :known that the e3rporation oi Yale took unprecedent- ed action in order to gratity the dying wish of tile young man, who, until January last, when his health broke down, stood among the first scholars of his class. When he was told a short time ago that he could hope to live but a few weeks tie xpressed a hope that lie might live just long enough to receive his degree item Yale. This wisii ie repeated to his family and his physi- cian and the, latter went to see Presi- dent Hadley and told him of the facts in the case. "Mr. Curran," said President Had- ley, "shall have his degree even though Yale shall have to break all rules to give it to lfim." A meeting of the corporation was called and on Tuesday last a report of the University carried to the young man the sheepskin with the gleat seal of Yale upon it and a cum lauds at- tached. The young man smiled and said to iris motlmr and sisters: 'Now I am ready to go." From that moment he sank rapidly and within 24 hours breathed his last with his bachelor's degree lying ol a table at his bedside. 'RCHBISHOP OF MANILA. Washington Hears '.l.'llat the Rev. J. J. Hmty of St. Louis Has Been Appointed, Washington, June 7.--The appoint- ment of [Father J. J. Harty, of St. Louis, to be Archbishop of Manila is announced at tim Papal Legation here Father Harty is one of the most popular priests of St, Louis, having nearly as many friends among Potes- tants as he has among members of his own faith. He is a native of St. Louis and received his education at St. Louis University and at St. Vincent College, in Gape Girardeau. He was ordained by Bishop P. J. Ryan in 188 and appointed assistant paster of St. Bridget parish, St. Louis. He re- mained there until the parish was divided in 188 and then became pas- tor'kof St. Leo parish, one of the divisions of the original parochial field. This has been his charge ever since, and during this time he has built a new .%hurch, a pastoral resi- dence anda parochial school, and has seen the parish growlfrom 135 families to 800 families. Father Harry is 50 years of age. Unofficial dispatches from Rome received at New Yorkl in the last two days haw asserted that the pope[has appointed Father Hendrick, of Roch- ester, to the Achblshoprio of Manila" These dispatches were received by high ecclesiastical authorities and were believed implicity till news of the announcement at Washington was receivea. It was said last night by one ot  theseauthofities that there had been a close contest for the appointment between the triends of the two nomi- nees. Father Harty was indorsed by Archbishop Ireland and.has the friend- ship of Cardinal SatolH. Father Hendrick was the nominee of Cardinal Gibbons and four Archbishops, and it was supposed that his appointment would be particularly pleasing to Pxesident Roosevelt, during whose Goveuorslfip he was elected a Regent of the state University. Order Against Dancing. LOUISVILLE,June 15--Bishop Mc- (lloskey, of tim Catholic diocese of Louisville, has issued an.%rder against dancing and the use of [intoxicants at picnics. Mr. Waterhouse's Economy [Original.] 'q/cnel," said young Mrs. Water- house six monflls after their marriage and when her trousseau was beginning to show the first signs of giving out, "I need a pair of shoes." "Certainly, my love." And he handed her $5. 'Lionel," said the wife a few days later, "I find my hat for the coming season is old fashioned. I fear that I shall have to get another." "Of course you will. How much do you want?" "A hat may cost anything you please to give, even $2. but I'll need a few spring waists. Then there's the trim- ming for my blue dress that I'm going l!

"Lionel," said the poor woman a year later, "f'm tired asking you for money with which to buy my clothes. For a lime I tried to economize in dress, but when you saw that my hats were out of fashion aud my Jackets and dresses were shabby you didn't like it, so I find myself hetween two fires. Isn't there some fund from which I could draw a stated amount?" "To tell the truth, my dear, we need to economize more than ever this year, as my business is not so flourishing. but I won't ask you to do it. I'll do it myself. I'll figure up Just what we'll draw monthly and turn it all over to you. As I have clothes enough to last a year you'll have the use of all the In- come." The wife gladly accepted the terms, and on lhe beginning of the next month her husband turned over to her the amount agreed upon. "Don't you want any of It, dear?" she asked meekly. "I have a 'quarter' in my pocket That 'll do for car fare." "But your luncheon ?" "Oh, yes; well, you might let me have a 'quarter' for that." , The money was paid over, and Mr. Waterhonse, after giving his wife the marital kiss, started down town. Five cents of his money went for cqr fare, 10 cents for apples which he pro- posed to eat for the benefit of his liver, while 10 cents more was considered necessary for a cigar. At noon he went round to his down town lunch club. "Hello. old man!" said Owen Carter. one of his clients. "Let's luncli to- gether." "Oh, I'm not going to cat much to- day. I'm not hungry." Nevertheless tbcy sat down together. "What do you say to dividing a pint of claret?" asked Carter. "Why, I've made it a rule not to drink anytbing before dinner." "Since when?" asked Carter, looking up, surprised. Now, Carter was an important factor in Waterhouse's business and the lat- te.r saw at once that any stinginess on his part might lead to bad results, se he said: "But that needu't stand In the way. W.aiter, a pint of Pontet-Canet." By good luck Waterhouse got through the luncheon with only 20 cents over and above the amount given him by his wife for the purpose and returned to his office. Ill the afternoon he received a note requiring a telephone reply. This cost him 10 cents, which he agreed to pay the next day. He had scarcely re- turned to his office when a young girl with a wan .face entered and begged him to help her by buying a five cent package of court 1)luster. He ground his teeth when he remembered that his money was gone--more than gone. Then he found it necessary to see a man whose office was at the other end of the city. Not having money for car fare dUd no one being near from whom to borrow, he walked there and back, a distance of three miles. When 5 o'clock came, he locked his desk and dragged himself over another two miles to his home. He had at times been disap- pointed to see a dissatisfied look on his wife's face when he reached home. To- day It was transferred to his own. His wife was serene. The next day he got on famously, spending only 10 cents for ear fare and 10 cents for tobacco, for he gave up ci- gars. He went home radiant. The third day he received a notice that each member of his class in college was in- vited to pay a dollar toward the build- ing of a new dormitory. It was slmply impossible for him to refuse. Then came a lady acqualntauce and sold him a ticket for 50 cents to a church fair As soon as she had gone he looked in his drawer for paper on which to reply to the college matter and found none. The stamp box also was empty. Seven- ty cents was expended for the two arti- cles. He eeoaomlzed by buying 2o cents' worth of stamps instead of a dof lar's worth, as usual, and was obliged to send again in two days. At luncheon he tried to dodge Carter, but Carter. who suspected that he was getting stin- gy, got bold of him and forced him to divide a three dollar lunch. B(lt tlm most absurd infraction of his econom- ical effort was the purchase of a razor offered to him by a peddler for $5 for ,which he satirically offered $1.50. On going home he became demoralized. figuring that his expenditures for the day amounted to $5.10. and to drown remorse stopped for a cocktail and a ci- gar. His wife smelled his breath and when he mentioned his exp_editures called him wasteful. This led tO their first quarrel. The next day the huSbgd reassmned the exchequer, an'd the wife: has since. been wearing her old clothes. ROGER T. HOWELL. McDONALD--BOWN CO, 914,,916 Western Avenue SEATTLE, .............. WASH.
