Many years ago, when the pope was subjected to indignities by the rulers and leaders of Italy, he remarked that to outlive one's enemies is sufficient revenge. Leo has outlived most of his old-tlme friends and all hls enemies. Bismarck, Garibaldi, Crlspi and the Dowager Empress Frederick represent the governments that persecuted the church in this generation. They and their Intrlgues fell into disrepute and the church goes gloriously on under the guidance of the wise and brilliant Leo. / AT THE BIER OF THE DEAD EM- PRESS. Paragraph writers speak of th trag- ic scene when the emperor dropped on his knees In prayer by his mother's bier The congregation knelt also. If the emperor had recited the prayers and litanies for the dead the congre- gation would have responded, for In the presence of death Catholic In # stlncts actuate emperor and people alike. It was not tragic, it was purely Catholic, CRI8PI 18 DEAD. Crtspl is dead and italy should re- joice. The man who did more to Im- poverish and disfranchise his fellow citisens and to rob them of education and national pride than any other ten men of his time is dead. He took his imspiration from anti-Catholic sources seeking always to oppress the masses for the advancement of men and meas- ures best calculated to secure to him- self the power to dominate. Like Bis- maxek, his prototype, he lived to see his dearest measures repudiated, his war policy fall, his attempts at colo. nl=tlon and conquest result in humil- iating dluater. He lacked the human. ity and the humility that make men great, and was void of the sense of reverence that befits the Italian char. acter. Illiteracy and crime and revolt against religion are some of the di. rect results of Signor Crlspi's influ- ence and manipulation. Now that he has gone, let us hope Italy will return to her artistic and reverential mood and take her place as of old in the re- ligious and intellectual forefront of the age, plying brush and chisel, living up to her poetic traditions. If any man in Seattle has more sympathy for the San Francisco strik- ers than he has for hls wife and chil- dren and hts employer, he should strike. There is a man not morbidly sympathetic, looking for his i"," : place. 5 ":''' %., , no way of preventing American pre- ponderance in Cuba, nor is there any way of preventing the Saxon race gradually ousting the Latin, not only in Cuba, but also in Central America. From the day Spain ceded Florida to the United States, it was only a mat- ter of time for Cuba also to become American, and it is hopeless to try to stop it. Before the unavoidable an- nexation comes, we ought to try to learn something from the Americans and thus get ready to live under the new conditions." La Lucha indorses this opinion and says: "American influence will short- ly dominate tn Cuba, with or without annexation, and the wisest course for the Cubans to take is to go with the stream; Join the winning side and, by learmng all they can, prepare for the new conditions. "At this hour, when the die has beer cast, it is useless to look back. Who- ever is to blame, if blame there be, or for whatever cause, things in Cuba are destined to run according to radi i cally different methods, and all those i who can adapt themselves to the change will get ample compensation in customs, language and preponderat- ing influence. By kicking, the Cubans will only injure themselves and will help neither themselves nor their lan- guage." The editor of La Realidad seemsto have touched, in a few words, the very core of the cause of the alleged decay of the Latin races. He says, in part: "Our intellectual culture has been one-sided and unpractical. We de- light in the speculative and theoret. teal; they (the Saxon race) love posi- tive and practical knowledge. The useful is their aim; ours, the beauti- ful, if not the showy. We talk; they act. Above all, they have a clear no- tion of time and its value, and we seem to have but a vague conception of it. Under these conditions, In the strug- gle for life, we must yield or perish. Adaptation is our only protection." It ts greatly to be hoped that in their haste to become Anglo-Saxonized the Cubans may not find that they have given up too much, and that dol- lars and cents do not always compen- sate either individuals oz' nations for the sacrifice of the ideal and the beau- tiful. A.M.J. CURRENT TOPICS. It Is to be hoped that the royal fam- ily of England may enjoy, for the fu- ture ,a long immunity from death. This sentiment is inspired by purely selfish motives rather than from an excessive regard for the welfare of thdse exalted personages. Ever since Anglo-Saxon- lsm became the fad in this country, certain newspapers have made a spe- cialty of exploiting the doings of Eng. lish royalty, from the greatest to the least, with a gusto smacking of a keen taste for imperialistic pomp. Scarcely had the American public recovered from the prolonged agony attendant on the death and burial of Queen Victoria than the funeral baked meats for the obsequies of the' Dow- ager Empress of Germany are elabor- ately served up for our special delec- tation, with a minuteness of detail and an affectation of woe out of all pro. portion to the unimportant place held Ly the deceased lady, either in the af- fairs of Germany or in the affections of her family, from whom she had been practically estranged for years. We have had a surfeit of royalty, living as well as dead, and long for plain, repub- lican fare once more. f/ $ $ The Orange society had its origin two hundred years ago in the fanatical hatred of the loyal supporters of Wil- liam of Orange to everything Catho- lic. From that time to this it has been the relentless persecutor of the old faith and all who professed it, both In Ireland and other lands. To secure Protestant ascendency and to override the CathY)lie majority by every spe- cies of injustice and outrage that un- limited power, guided by ferocious big- (dry 'ouhl suggest, was-the sole l)ur- I),s( of its existence, and is no less its aim today. "Tim leol)ard does not change his spots, nor the tiger his skin." neitlmr does tile Orangeman his huc. The fell spirit or the society is once more shown by the storm of protest raised by the Orange lodges in Canada against any modification of the coro- nation oath of the British sovereign, which is so offensive to the Catholics of the United Kingdom. The Toronto Globe of recent (late publishes, with apparent approval, the official utter- ances of several of those societies, which, for malignant falsehood, could not be paralleled outside of their own organization or that of their worthy offspring in this country--the A. P. A. --of fragrant memory. But squirm as they may, the oath framed to suit the ignorant prejudices of two centuries ago, will be modified in conformity with the superior enlightenment of the twentieth century. If not in the reign of the present king, then it will be in that of his successor. Chaplain Jones of the United States navy said, in a recent discourse in New York, that "we may thank God for the friendship and-love of Englaw.1 ia our late war with Spain." The mo- tive for this sudden show of affection cn tbe part of our old enemy was so transparent that It has never deceived any but those who love to be humbug. &'ed; but as those include avery con- siderable number of the people of this country, it follows that there are many weak-headed people who really believe in the disinterested friendship of Eng. land for the United States. It is to be feared that the "full din- ner pail," which played so important a part in the last presidential campaign, may be lamentably empty among many of the ciass who marched and shouted and voted so blithely for the party of billion dollar trusts last fall. There would seem to be somethin i:: calorics that plays the very mis- chief wltlt the human animal, judging from the events reported by the daily press during the heated term. When- ever the mercury in the thermometea rises and floats airily at the hundre( mark or above it, then all his repress- ed diabolism appears to be turned lease, with results that make us won- der whether, after all, our civilization is anything more than a thin veneer- ing on the primitive man. A. M.J: Editor Catholic Progress. Dear Sir: It has been my good fr- tune, during my recent bicycle tour, to have made the acquaintance of not an inconsiderable number of the Catholics in Skat and Whatcom counties. Be- fore proceeding to give you my im- pressions of these acquaintances I will briefly map out for You my course in tl-ese counties. Landing at La Conner (Skagit county), I proceeded to Whit- ney, Fredonia, Skagit City, Mount Vernon, Avon, Sterling, Sedro, Wool- lay, Mount View, Burlington , North Avon, Belfast and Edison. From Edi- son I proceeded on an unwheelable nmuntain road, visiting Chuckanut, Fairhaven, Whatcom and vicinity, Ferndam, Enterprise, Custer, Hillsdale and Blaine. From thence I took a steamer to Anacortes, got on wheel again and visited Fldaigo, Bay View and Whitney, reaching La Conner on Tuesday, July 30, well pleased, indeed that such a sweet experience had been granted me, and only regretting that I had to return once more to ceremoni. ous formalities of urban life. What a paradise the world ere, If only the genial warm-heartedness and hospital. ity of the country could be found in the city, even In some small way. Wherever I went I found the same kind, generous attention given to me by the Catholics of those counties. Among these, however, I beg leave to mention the names of some who were overgenerous In their reeep'tion of me and who consequently deserve a spe- cial mention. In La Conner Mrs. Sullivan, Mr. Ge- ogan, Mr. Callahan and Mr. O'Laugh. lln. In Mount Vernon, Mr. Meehan, Mr. Murray and Mr. Solin. In Sedro-Woolley, Mrs. Dougherty, Mrs. Woolley and Mr. Frltsch. In Burlington, Mrs. Weideman and household. In Edison, Mr. J. C. Cain/ and Mr. Hollerln. In Whatcom, Mrs. Carr. In Fairhaven, Mrs. Hurley and Mrs. Morrln and Mrs. Harrington. In Ferndale, Mrs. Matz. In Blaine, Mr. McClusken. In Anacortes, Mrs. Gillis. I desire to bear testimony also to the CXtl'rme kindness manifested to- wards me by the Rev. Fathers Boulet La i{oux and l)eiehlnan, who so gener- ously assisted me by their letters of. in. {oduetion and l)y their directions. They were the soul of kindness and it i: wholly due to them that I succeeded o well in making known our college la those two counties. In conneetion, dear sir, I would ask you, if I am not too bold, to make mention of this little matter in the pages of The Catholic Progress, in or- der that, apart from expressing my own sentiments, the Catholics of those counties may see that we have not lost all appreciation of kindness in Seattle. Respectfully, PROF. J. M. GARVAN, M. A. THE ASSUMPTION. Yesterday, being a holiday of obli- gation, was observed in the churches the same as Sunday. The commem- oration of the Assumption reminds us of the infinite love our Lord had for his mother. Destined for ages to be the virgin that would crush the head of the serpent, conceived immac- ulate, vowed to a life of virginity, why should she not be the object of His special love, and why, since He couhl do so, should not her ascended Son receive the body as wel as the soul of the Blessed Virgin into Heav- en, as the church teaches? Purity is the only quality that can excite love divine, and this was the quality of our blessed mother. This must be our quality, in keeping with our station in life, if we are to merit salvation. Illicit and carnal love are blighting, most mischievous, and entail upon so- ciety its greatest curse. The church i has suffered more from scandals than i from heresies and persecutions and yet we tolerate familiari- ties that hang on the bor- ders of our influence without crushing them. We go to an nneasy couch and commend our friends and weak acquaintances to the special pro- tection of the Mother of purity for temptation and sin walk forth in the night as of yore. Resolutions, pro- fessions and vows have gone down at the bidding of passion, to the sorrow of the sinner, to the detriment of the church and to the confusion and shame of professing Christians. We need most thrilling sermons on chastity to give a deep seriousness t conduct, and to make purity the most loved of virtues. No life can inspire !noble act(on if it lacks this crowning virtue. Not intellect, nor cunning nor position can excite respect, but spot- less virginity and honest endeavor make one a blessing to his friends, an inspiration and a joy to himself. THE ORPHANS' PICNIC. It has been decided to hold the pic- nic for the benefit of the orphans at Madrona park during the day and evening of. Monday, September 2. It requires the co-operation of our peo- ple to make it a success. No pains will be spared to make It a pleasant occasion. Tickets may be had from any of the Foresters, from the sis- ters or from some of our merchants, who have kindly volunteered to sell hem. 00AT00ONAL 00EOERATION CATH- OUC 00OC00ET00ES. Delegates to Meet at Long Branch, New Jersey. A meeting for the purpose of con- sldering plans and constitution for Na - tional Federation Catholic Societies will be held in the Lyceum building! at Long Branch, N. J., on Wednesday, i August 28. Right Rev. James A. McFaul, bishop of Trenton, and other prominent cler- gy and laity will be present. All Catholic societies should send :delegates to this meeting. Federation is essential to concerted action in pro- I motlon of Catholic interests and insti- tutions. Federation means a combin- ing of influence and an intercommuni- cation that will create a unity of sen- timent in the upbullding of religion and in establishing a fraternal bond that is national."

INGTON (IT. FATINA. (Ccmtlnued fronl August 2.) Now, Kerim httl among his other personal gifts a rich, tuneful voice, wl'h whi(:h he was accustomed to sing l)retty little songs to the accompani- ment of a Turkish h|te, and, one even- ing as the twilight settled slowly down, the little heat was tossing on the deep waters of the canal, just at the place where the little, four-corfier- ed, barred window, high up in the wall of the house as to be seen, which at the close of day let a little bright- ness into the chamber of the beauti- ful Fatina. Fatina was alone--the soft tones penetrated her ears, and In the rhymes her name was often repeated. Without doubt there was some one outside who was singing to her. She listened with redoubled eagerness and her bosom rose and fell with increasing excite- ment. "The Prophet has shown me my future bride in a dream," so sang the stranger with a beautiful voice below; "she has the features of the lovely Fatina, and now I pray to Allah and the good Mohammed to make the dream a reality." Chaissa now returned and at sight ot her there was awakened for the first time in Fatina's breast a sense of h'er seclusion from life and love, but at the same time the mysterious long- ing that had been awakened within her sharpened her wits and her plan was soon ready. Scarcely had the ohl woman thrust her distorted face in at the door, when she was struck by one of Fatina's sat- in slippers, and the beauty cried out about the shamelessness of the man outside who had broken her rest with his tiresome singing. "0, the canal?" Inquired Chaissa; "then tt is no other than the boatman Kerlm, whom may Allah eternally con- demn. The fellow with his fine voice and his diabolical beauq( shall not disturb your rest again, my little dove." "He is beautiful!" Fatina's heart, exulted and a joy she had never known before streamed through it, but her lips continued to scold and spoke of the singing that is such a stupid gift, and which had fairly insulted her cars. As Chaissa once more began to speak of the singer, FaUna held her ears and cried that she would hear nothing more about him. "There is no danger here," thought the Soudanese, and postponed giving the information to Abdullah until the morrow, but when the morrow came the old woman had forgotten the whole circumstance. During the day FaUna said to her: "Chaissa, to do nothing is so tiresome to me. I will begin some slow net work. Bring me gay silken thread of every color." And Fatina knotted and knotted, but only for the sake of ap- peara, nces. When Chaissa had left the room she tied the threads together, making one long cord. Evening came, and with it, Kerim. Scarcely had he struck the prelude upon his lute when there appeared a small, white hand between the bars and let fall something that glistened in the moonlight. It did not touch the smooth surface of the water, however, but swung to and fro above it. Kerim, with a few strokes, brought his boat to the spot and held in his hand a gold ring, tied securely with a silken! thread. There was also a slip of pa- per, upon which was written: "Your song has pierced my heart, beautiful Kerlm," Kerim pressed the ring and the mes- sage to his breast, but he was soon apprised by a gentle pull upon the thread that there is danger in delay, and he let go of the'ring, which in- stantly shot up into the air,and van- ished. Kerlm entoned an inspiring s0ng of praise to the Prophet whlch,.Fatina's heart comirehen]ed. On the ollowo ing night there was no singing, al- though Kerim was in his accustomed place with: his beat the entire evening. On the second e'enlng the ring came down empty, and as it was drawn up it contained his message: "O beauti- ful Fating, Star of my eyes, Kerim's heart Is with thee. When shall Kerim follow his heart?" And the answer came back, "My window is barred, but not my heart." On the third evening the ring took up a fine, yet strong, liempen cord; on the fourth evening this was let down and ,carried back a carefully knotted rope ladder.  i Fatina's heart beat with rapid: strokes as she perceived this. Then the ladder was drawn tight as by a heavy weight, and almost immediately appeared a man's head before the bars, and whose lips spoke glowing words of love. But while his mouth was thus occupied his hands were not idle. He had ready, a fine, sharp file, which he plied vigorously. This went on for three ceecessive nights. On the fourth Fatina had everything prepared for flight, and Kerim carried his pre- cious burden in his arms down to his boat, which carried the happy lovers away over the smooth waters. Scarce had the sun risen on the fol- lowing morning when Kerim stood be- fore Abdullah's door and knocked.
