St. Patrick's Mountain. I [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 26 April 1902
St. Patrick's Mountain. Not far from Wostport, in tlio county of Mayo, Ireland, is a lofty mountain called Croagh Patrick, wliich tradition assigns as the scene wliere the celebrated Irish saint performed many of his reputed mimcles. It was here that ho passed forty days and forty nights of fasting und devotional exorcise, which formed the initiation of his alleged saintship, and subsequently delivered that communication which according to superstition, banished all manner of reptiles from the island. To climb this mountain on certain periodical occasions has since become, and still remaius, a duty among the Boinan Catholics of the district; and every year the ascent is made by many thousands, who believe that they thereby accomplish a meritorious deed, and become entitled to St. Patrick's especial favour and intercessional consideration. The road to the summit resembles a worn channel of a inoun\x=req-\ torrent; the abrasion being effected by the annual pilgrimages of Lthe multitud...

A Retrospect. ROMANISM v. PROTESTANTISM. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 26 April 1902
A Retrospect. ROMANISM v. PROTESTANTISM. AitTicLE DX^-liy KbV: ''HEinty: CFAhii&im. According to report, vr. Hedwood said that protestantism, " covered Europe with blood and ruins in the 10th' century." It was truly a period of smuggle for human liberty against superstitions and tyranny of Rome. Freedom for conscience and person was bought by blood. The Puritans believed in Reformation. The cause of liberty was helped' on when " good Queen Bess." came to England's throne. The passion for reform was already felt in Europe, 'especially in the north of Germany. (The higher classes in Hungary and Austria were leaving- Romanism. Other parts of Europe, Poland and Scandinavia were gradually shaking themselves free of the fetters of Rome. Sturdy Scotland with Mary at her head, struck off the shackles of ecclesiastical bondage. Even France felt the pressure of the wave of new thought. Only where Rome was dominant was the spirit of reform sub- dued. However, the dawning light that pro...

St. Patrick. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 3 May 1902
St. Patrick. Popeiy is veiy impudent; It would, if it could, foist upon us tho basest perversions'of history. It is also tyrannical- If it could, there would be no toleration for anytliing iu this world except itself. Even in this State, where it is tolerated (as it ought to bo) it would impose upon Protestants the burden of what they call St. Patrick's Day. Let us all go in for a William of Orauge Day. Let us have our Orange procession and our Orange fights. I It is all rery well for O'Sullivan, and others, to j pander in favour of Popery, and cry out for peace and goodwill, while they do their utmost to foment strife and rancour. Popery will cry out for peace and goodwill so long as you let it have its own way. "We can have pea?e and goodwill only by submitting to its impudence and tyranny. But the day is past for such policy as this on the part of Protestants. - ; But, what about this Saint Patrick, for the sake of whom we are commended to shut up shop, dance and sing, and drink ...

St. Patrick's Mountain. II [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 3 May 1902
St. Patrick's Mountain. My last paper was copied from Revd. James Pago's took, entitled, " Ireland. Its evils traced to their source." v • Xu reading that account,' one seems to be reading a description of some - of'the revolting superstitions ■ that are practised in heathen lands. Many persons will find it difficult to believe that such-doings take place in a nominally Christian country. Indeed, were not the account authenliated by the describer's name, and supported by the authority of liis dignified vocation, one would be inclined to think the tale too monstrous to be'credited. So substantiated, wo are bound to accept it aB presenting one of the strongest possible evidences of the degrading influences of Romish superstition, acting upon the ignorance and credulity of an excitable and devoutly disposed people. These poor Irish peasants aro not without a sense of religious obligation, and in their misguided veneration show tendencies, which, if adequately enlightened, might be avai...

Rome and Education. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 3 May 1902
/; Rome and Education. The repeated claims of the R.C. i>riesthood, in connectidn with education matters, are . worthy of more consideration than they apparently receive. That all subjects in a free State are entitled to the enjoyments of equal rights upon equal conditions cannot bo denied. It is questionable whether the priest is so qualified by his condition to demand these equal rights. The sine qua nont which entitles individuals to full and tree rights in a State, is absolute and undivided allegiance to constitution and government of that State, and this, we will proceed to show, the priest cannot give without being a traitor to his sacerdotal obligations. It cauuot be admitted that the .Roman Catholic, whoso allegiance is divided between a spiritual and a temx>oral power is entitled to the same civil rights and privileges as the Protestant, whose allegiance is undivided and who acknowledges but oue master. That the Roman Catholics, under tolerant Protestant rule, do rece...
Personal and Otherwise. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 3 May 1902
Personal and Otherwise. Alderman Thomas Henley, the recently elected representative of the suburban councils on the "Water and Sewerage Board,'has held a ; seat in the Drummoyne district for five years ; and during that time has taken a leading part! in the higher walks of municipal life. All Drummoyne loves him, and he hns twice occupied the Mayoral chair of that pretty riverside suburb. He is a Napoleon for work, and it was mainly through his efforts that he settled the Five Dock and Drummoyne municipal trouble. As an author he has figured most successfully in the brochure yclept "A Plea for Greater Sydney," in which he shows a marvellous and enlightened grasp of municipal life. Moderator Gibb, recently in Sydney for a holiday, is head of the Duncdin Prosbyterian Assembly. A week or two ago Mr. Gibb attended the Dunedin Methodist Conference, in which he made a glowing speech, stating his opinion that " the bogey of Calvinism and the bogey of Anniniamsm are being destroyed," and co...

Her Last Chance. "There is a tide in the affairs of woman If taken at the flood leads on to fortune." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 3 May 1902
-Her Last Chance. ^ " There is a tide in the nffaiiw of woman " If taken at the flood leads on to fortune." lng. mamma, and what do you tliink I did, said Nellie Maxwell to lier mother one morning." *• Accepted him, of course."

I am only twenty-two, mamma, • and I have resolved not to many until twenty\x=req-\ five. I think the years of girlhood are the happiest years of a woman's life, and I mean to have a long«girlhood."

Correspondence. SAINT FURSEY. To the Editor of the "Watchman." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 3 May 1902
.Correspondence. , SAINT FURSEY. . To the Editor of the ""Watchman." Sir,—A friend of mine has put into my hands a copy of the " Australian Catholic Record." Particularly notice the elimination of the word Soman, no doubt to . catch the unwary Protestant reader. It is a quarterly issue of very respectable appearance under direct sanction of the R.C. Church. It contains a series of articles bearing upon the theology and claims of the Romish Church ns paramount to salvation, Being a layman one article struck me very forcibly, from the pen of no less a distinguished person than his Eminence Cardinal Moran, who has dug out an Irish Saint from the 7th century, whom nobody ever heard of before, except his eminence, or such as revel in book love of a very primitive hypothetical character. To give your readers an idea of the kind of literature that is disseminated by sanction of the highest Romish : ecclesiastical authorities of this fair land of Australia, only two incidents will be quoted...
