The priest in Ireland are playing their
game, I will not hay too low down,
but too openly for prudence They
forget tho Knglisli gallery lo jking on
and the American. Cork is at this
moment tho scene of their most in
teresting performance-. If you care to
see what Irish priests are like in
politics look at them in Cork. Eighty
of them were on the platform at Mr
Dillon's meeting on Tuesday night.
The platform was hhek with them.
The streets are black with them. No
such black band has been seen of late
year even in Irish politics, nor bout
on business no black. Their business
lit to rivet lljfl poljtlcal fetters of Rome
"on the neck Of llid'trlsh people, and
their prospect of lueeess it very con
Biuorauie. i neir i.icucs in Uui'K are
thorough. Neither freedom of speed'
nor freedom of vote Is allowed. Speech
and vote must be such as please the
priest, or both are anathemo. They
lake active part In canvassing for Mr
Flavin against Mr. Redmond, and
there canvassing Is of n kind which no
Protestant community would tolerate.
Tho question, Who shall be member
for Cork In Mr. PainoH's place is
purely ft political question. Electors
are told that their salvation depend
on their voting for Mr. Flavin, All
tho terrors of tho church are invoked
against dinners who would vote for
Mr. Redmond. They may not confess.
Absolution Is denied them. They are
allowed to go straight to hell, if tc
them Mr. Redmond should seem a
person more lit to represent the City
of Cork in Parliament. The Inquisition
is at work in a new form, a lii. do
slecle Inquisition. I'riesta do not think
it enough to canvass for their own man.
They Hot spies on their opponents'
canvassers, and upon those whom they
canvPHH. When n canvasser for Mr.
Redmond walks out, the eanv asser for
Mr. Flavin walkes in, note book in
hand, lie i either a priest or accom
panied by a priest, and then and there
the unhappy voter U summoned to say
what ho has promised or refused to the
other side, and to pledge himself to
voto for Mr. Flavin. If ho refuses or
hesitates, tho curse of Rome Is invoked
against him, ruin in this world and
damnation in Hie next. In a word, the
most tremendous machinery the world
ever know for the propagation of dog
ma and for spiritual ends is now daily

Cottnrtl. now In thin pountiy, speaking
of tho oppoiition of the Roman Cutho
lie bishop to the government schools
and college of Ireland, fays:
"Those excellent ini titutioun, ihe
Model school nud tjuccn'a colleges, In
which there was pvery safeguard
against Interference with religious
opinion, woro ruthlessly boycotted Ih
cause the Catholic bishops themselves
could not control them. To kill the
schools every spiritual weapon was
employed. Every Catholic favoring
them was excommunicated and denied
th'i rights of ChristiBii sepulture after
death. As an evidence that this
spirit of intolerance is not extinct, tho
reverend gentleman cites tho case of
two Methodist clergymen who were
recently imprisoned for preaching in
tho open air in Ai klow, County Wick
low. The Irish priests have ever been
dictatorial and intolerant. Drawn from
the peasantiy and educated at May
nooth, they are insular, narrow and
bigoted in their ideas. They have
none of the culture and liberalism of
their predecessors, who are generally
rained at European universities. The
present fight between tho priests and
people is instructive and encouraging.
It is purely anil simply a rovolt against
church supremacy. The Parnoll divorce
proceedings were tho occasion, not the
pause of tho rebellion. For years the
wkmi of . Ireland have been chnlllrtg
under ecclesiastical tyranny.
They are now up in arms against it.
For McCarthylsm and l'arnollism I
would have you understand clericalism
and anti-clericalism. With the politi
cal aspect of tho scriminago I havo
nothing to do, I only notice the quar
rol at all to illustrate the fact that tho
days of priestly domination in Ireland
are doomed. Every voto cast in favor
of I'arnell at tho recent elections was
in delianco of clerical dictation. There
Is a spirit of liberalism abroad in Ire
land that augurs well for the future.
With spiritual intolerance ended there
will be a hopeful outlook for the
friends of the Christianity of the Cos-
Protestantism hat no principles or
consistency. It was tho creation of a
drunken, thieving and lustful mob, and
consequently must always act as tho
mob dictate. Omaha Roman Catholic
Tiik mistake must not be made tha
this warfare Is Icing mado against
particular Catholics. It Is against tho
church as a political organization.
