CONTINENTAL. M. Felix Faure and Sisters of Charity. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 9 November 1895
CONTINENTAL M. Felix Paure and Sisters of Charity. It must bo allowed, says the GallioUc Time*, that the President of the .Republic shows no stint in the distribution of honours to Sisters of Charity. Two more have been added to the list of those whom he has recently ' decorated.' On Arriving at Mirecourt in order to bo pre sent at the close of the great manoeuvre.1!?, one of tli'» first acts of M. Felix Faure was to visit the hospice, of which the inmates are chiefly soldiers, old men and orphans. While there he presented to Sislers Hyacinth and Joseph, each of whom could eoi.nt forty-five years of service in tho cause ol: the poor and the suffer ing, two silver medal*. The sisters were sur prised, and accepted the tokens with unfeigned reluctance, saying that they had done nothing to deserve such an honour. On this point, however, the President did his best to reassure them in that very pleasant manner which offers a contrast entirely in his favour to the stiffness and pose of so ...
AMERICA. Cardinal Gibbons.—Pope Leo XIII. as the American Prelate Saw Him. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 9 November 1895
AMERICA. Cardinal G-ibbons.— Pop© Leo XIII. as tho American Prolate Saw Him. Cardinal Gibbons spoke to a large congre gation on Sunday, September 8th, in the Baltimore Cathedral, of his recent European trip. ' The first subject which naturally occurs to me,' said the Cardinal, 'regards my several visits to the Pope. Represent to yourselves a man in his eighty-sixth year, pale and emaciated, with a pallor almost ot death upon him. His body is more bent than it was eight or ten years ago, but his eye is bright and penetrating; his voice is strong and sonorous; his intellect is remarkably clear and luminous; his memory is most tenacious. He has also an astonishing power of physical endurance, which enables him to hold audiences for several consecutive hours, treating on most important subjects with cardinals and foreign representatives as well as with private individuals, and passing with ease and elasticity of mind from one subject to another. He is remarkably fami liar with the publi...
THOSE WONDERFUL ATOMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 9 November 1895
THOSE WONDERFUL ATOMS. ? « ? That awe-inspiring phrase, a ' fortuitous concourse of atoms,' stands for the mate rialist's explanation of the phenomena of the universe and life. The atoms were originally knocking about in otherwise empty space, and, after an eternity or so of aimless wander ings, they accidentally bumped against one another with, possibly, a polite apology for the accident, and with the very surprising eventual result (I omit tedious details cover ing a period of several billions of years) of the organised planetaiy system and the still more astonishing realities called life and conscious ness. The latter results of the ' fortuitous concourse ' are, as I say, even more surpris ing than the material universe. If a collision between two drunken men produced a flash of lightning and a peal of thunder, the affair would be the veriest commonplace compared with the production of thinking entities through a fortuitous coming together of minute particles of dead matter ; for...

Life and Works of Tom Moore. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 9 November 1895
Life and Works of Tom Moore. On Friday evening, September 6, Professor Clarke Robinson, M.A., late lecturer on Literature in Durham University, delivered a lecture on ' The Life and Works of Thomas Moore,' under the auspices of the Irish Women's Association, in Rosemary-street Lecture Mall. Miss A. L. Milligan, presi dent (Belfast) presided. Professor Robinson, who spoke and quoted at great length without notes, has a brilliant narrative style, and told the story of Moore's varied and interesting life, introducing ac counts of his poems and quotations from them chronologically. He struck the right note by describing at the outstart the times in which Moore was born, and his growing up into manhood at a time when the French revolutionary movement had awakened Ire land to be up and doing in the cause of free dom. His Trinity College life and his friend ship with Robert Emmett were dwelt on at length, and his manly and firm conduct on the occasion of the inquiry into the existence of s...
The Early History and Problems of Trades Unions. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 9 November 1895
The Early History and Problems of .Trades Unions. SECOND LECTURE BY MR. C. H. OLDI-IAM. On Tuesday Mr. C. H. Oldham, B.L., delivered the second of the series of Bar rington lectures in the Trades' Hall, Capel street, The lecture was a continuation of the first one, delivered last week in the same hall, namely, ' The Early History and Problems of Trades Unions.' The lecture was a most interesting and instructive one, and was listened to with wrapt attention by the large audience, which was composed mainly of working men. Mr. E. L. Richardson, President of the Trades Council, presided. Mr. C. H. Oldham, who was received with applause, asked his hearers to distinguish in their own minds between a Trade Union, which meant a union of workers belonging to the same trade, and a Trades' Union, )vli:di mvuns a union of different unions. It was a common literary blunder to treat the two terms as meaning the same thing. The ideal of the Trades' Union was the complete solidarity of all wage-ear...
Archbishop Croke and Mr. Stead. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 9 November 1895
Archbishop Croke and Mr. Stead. The Venerable Archbishop of Cashel has had the misfortune to be made the subject of a character sketch, in the ' Refuse of Refuse,' by Mr. Stead. Of this gossiping gentleman the reverse of a portion of what Dr. Johnson wrote ol Lroldsmith is eminently true. ' tie left no kind of writing untouched, and he touched nothing that he did not adorn.' Stead leaves no kind of writing, nor kind of honorable person untouched, and he touches nothing or nobody that he does not disgrace, and tend to lower in the public estimation. The Irish bishops will be chary of admitting in the future so indelicate a person to their society, or trusting him with their confidential matters.
A Catholic University for Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 9 November 1895
A Catholic University for Ireland. At the opening of the session 1895-96 of St. Munchine's Diocesan College, Limerick, on Tuesday, in the presence of a distinguished assemblage of the Catholic citizens, the Lord Bishop, the Most Rev. Dr. O'Dwyer, raised the very important question of the necessity 01 a Catholic university lor Ireland. Having replied to an address from the pupils and discussed the annual report of the college, read by the president, the Very Rev. A. Murphy, his Lordship said : We have heard it stated on many sides lately that the present Government will deal with the question of university education. For my part I sincerely hope that we shall not again be doomed to disappointment. Naturally, I look at this question first and before everything else as a bishop, and seeing as I do on all sides a great intellectual activity and at the same time a spread of irreligious and socialistic and generally dangerous principles, I desire that the best minds of the country should ...

FANCY FAIR AT PARRA MATTA. „_.„. . . ? _-A^__ .. OPENED BY CARDINAL MORAN. The annual fancy fair in aid of the Convent of Mercy was opened in the Town Hall, Parramatta, on Saturday afternoon by Car dinal Moran.

O'Reilly, Mahony, Sheridan, Corcoran, Power and Kirkb)'. The Cardinal, on being introduced by Father O'Reilly, said that he had a very pleasing task imposed upon him in being asked to declare the bazaar open. He was pleased to note that all the previous bazaars had been a success, and it showed that all the workers were interested in their labour of love. The bazaar was for a most laudable object, that of assisting the Sisters of Charity in their work of beneficence. Wherever the British language was spoken they would find the sisters carrying out their great work. It might be in remote foreign parts, or even here amon...

MINING NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 9 November 1895
MINING NEWS In the mining markets quotations were fairly strong. Very little business was done in silvor, the only transactions effected being in Centrals and Junctions. In gold a few North Duke Timor shares and Occidentals changed hands. Newcastle colliery-owners in Sydney have been endeavoring to form a vend to regulate tho production or. coal, and Jix a minimum selling and hewing rate. On Monday a deadlock arose. Three of the large companies replied definitely that they were unfavorable to the formation of it vend, and the five other companies agreeable to the proposal have decided that the present unrestricted competition must continue. It ia therefore feared that the reductions in the hewing rates will go on. BruNiov Stock Exchange. — Tho following are the quotations : — Uuyor. Solid.1. Buyor. Solid COAL. Gold.— (0'o?U.)

COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 9 November 1895
COMMERCIAL. Business of a quiet nut lire has been indulged in. during the week. The wet weal her has had a sin all. effect on values, and trade has been somewhat interfered with, In brendstuffo, flour lia« advanced another 1.0s., and is now quoted, at £1.0 10d. par ton. This is due to the further advance in the price of wheat in the Southern colonies. There is, however, a certain amount; of business done at pricey below that figure, and sales have not been on an extensive scale. Wheat is quoted in Sydney at; from 4s. 2d. to L-s. Gd. per bushel, but; prices are likely to alter very shortly, as at the end of tho month new whont will, be coming forward.

NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 9 November 1895
NOTES AND COMMENTS. — — ^i ? It would be as useless, as it would be vain, for us to attempt to conceal the annoyance that our not appearing in public a month or five weeks earlier has given us. Oh ! that we could put back the hands of time ! In abominable, barbarous novels of the shilling shocker and boudoir-scented type, this frothy sentiment* may oe met witn in aounaance, and in real life small heroes make free use of it as the easiest means of dissolving their diminutive worshippers in copious tears. Without indulging in mock heroics, however, could the Catholic Press go back a few weeks, what wondrous possibilities of great ness and renown would be within our easy reach. The Dean case, with its magnificent uncertainty and positively unrivalled display of bewildering intricacies, lay before us, temptingly spread out, inviting us to enter. Not less important were the hymeneal felicities of the colony's most venerable and much-married statesman, Sir Henry Parkes. Most beautiful and...

COUNTRY NEWS. Jerilderie. — Several of the farmers in the locality have been compelled to cut their hay crops owing to a plague of grasshoppers.
