"What do your readers think of, to my nrind, the hardly less audacious and mischievous act of the Govern ment in formally waiting on Cardinal Moi-an and wishing him. farewell?

Professor Harper.on the late Dr. A. Davidson. At the opening of tlie Theological Hall, at St. Andrew's College, on "Wednesday afternoon the following graceful tribute was paid to the memory of the late Dr. Davidson, by Prof. Harper,1 D.D. IxAUGuiLUi Leotuke, St. Andrews College, 18th SIaiicii, 1902. Dr. A. B. Davidson.—At the opening of a Presbyterian Theological Hall, when the sub ject of consideration is to be " Modern Methods of Teaching, the Old Testament," it would bo unbecoming, and for me it is impossible not to speak of the great Scottish Hebraist, Dr. A* B. Davidson, whose death was announced a mail or twc ago. In itself, his death was singularly fitting, for such a man. On a Sabbath morn ing, following upon a week of strenuous work, without pain, and so swiftly that he had not even to-face the "shadow feared of man," ho departed, u God's finger touched him and he slept," the great, reposeful sleep. Nothing in here for tears, nothing to wail, , : Qr knock the breunt. . . . ...

Letters to "be addressed to tlie Editor, Watcji max, 35 Queen Viotoria Markets, York Street.] THE MUSCLE. During tlie progress of the test matches some of the leading business houses in Melbourne and Sydney stuck up notices requesting their visitors not to discuss cricket So asserts a correspondent in the Herald. However the cricket has now entered on the last stages of the season for 1901-2, and the voice of the footballer will soon be heard in the land. A few weeks hence Australians will only be able to play cricket in Fairyland—a somewhat .un substantial recreation, though the poet has found charms in it: When in my dreams I take my stand To guard tie stumps in Fairyland, I little fear tie bowler's wile, Nor dread the wicket-keeper's guile; They do not bowl me off my pad ,No catches from my glove are bad; The hated " leg-before " if bnired In matches played in Fai...

How the World Wags. By Alters. The newly formed British Empire League of Australia has adopted the motto " One Peo ple, One Destiny." The membership fee is only one shilling, and the Radical journals are wondering how the League is going to banquet Barton or Reid when the finances are fixed at so small a figure. The Sydney Zoo has received from tht> Perth. Gardens a Sun bear and a paii4 of Indian swine in exchange for a Llama and a Japanese ape. The Press is well represented m the Federal Contingent by Mr. Geo. Wynne, son of the popular business manager of the " Daily Tele graph." He has the appointment of Quarter master with the rank of Captain, and doubtless during the campaign will prove that" the pen is mightier than the sword " by supplying first class copy to his father's paper.

THE PRISONER OF THE VATICAN. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 March 1902
THE PRISONER OF THE VATICAN. Between* Archbishop Kelly's lecture in St. edict's Hall on Monday evening of last woc, and his address at Paddington on ij..iiday, there is a difference that shows what he is and what he evidently would like to appear to be. In the latter the hand is care fully gloved, and is held out in apparent friend ship to all sections of the community. Is this the new policy? His predecessor was constantly proclaiming war and waging it with a bull headedness that clearly could, have but one issue. Such a policy lias resulted as it only could -have been expected to result, in his quitting the scene of his strife and leaving a not very savory memor}T behind him. It may appear that Archbishop Kelly is more inclined for peace, but more likely it is. .the old story. "When.Rome is woi^ed in any conflict the cry ;lias always been for peace, for toleration.' • The pity is that ho did not whisper his peace senti ment into the ear of the Minister for "Works, before the Hiber...

- SATURDAY, MARCH 22, 1102. . A. BOGUS CLAIM. The census returns recently issued by Mr. _ Coghlan, Government Statistician, should be particularly welcome to the Protestant com munity. For several years past claims have been made by the Roman Catholic Priesthood that their Church was making enormous head way in growth* of population,. that their num bers, .in fact, wore increasing, by leaps and .bounds* In the "Missiones Catholicas" for. 1901, statistics were given as supplied by the Sacred Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith. These statistics, we are informed, I are supplied to the Holy See every five years' by Ecclesiastical authorities throughout the world. In this now historic document there are stated to be in New South Wales alone 1,359.133 Soman Catholics, while in Australia generally-the • total numbers are claimed to amount to 4,507,980.

Lawlessness in the Anglican Church. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 March 1902
La wlessness in tihie Anglican Church. Just one week ago an article appeared in a Church of England official weekly, published in Melbourne, and well .advertised in Sydney, which took the following subject for its leading article—" Why we disobey the .Privy Couucil." It is an attempt to justify the Ritualists in their Romanising crusade, within the establish ment in England and in those colonies or states, that (like New South Wales) are part and parcel of the English Church, for (unlike New Zealaud) we have never'cut ourselves adrift from the right of appeal to the Privy Council, as the highest Ecclesiastical Court in the Realm. That certain Anglican Roroanisers did prefer to go to prison for contempt of court, rather than act according to Privy Council decisions is quite true; but it merely means that such men pre fered to obey the Pope rather than the late Queen, or in other words it means that they thought more good • would be gained to the Konmn cause in Eugland by their posing...
