Women were given a voice in
the Catholic Congress at Chicago.
This is the first time they have
been permitted to take part in an
ecclesiastical assemblage of the
Catholic faith. This departure
indicates that the church is pro
gressing in the right direction.
St. Paul and St. Peter and the
other fathers of the Christian
church were men of great zeal and

all wrong on the woman question.
Ira Simpson, the hardware mer
chant who nipped two bank rob
bers with his Winchester as they
were fleeing from the town of Del
ta, Colorado, is what is called in
the vernacular of the breezy west
“hot stuff.” May his tribe in

outlawry is nerve. What is re
quired for its extermination is

When a gang of tbugs raid a town
for the purpose of looting a bank,
or undertake to hold up a train,
they take their lives in their hands.
In point of fact the chances are all
against them. It is the few against
the many. It is only by the dis
play of superior audacity that they
ever succeed in carrying out their
plan. By meeting their bluff with
a resolute front they could be very
readily put to flight, or, better
still, made to bite the dust. This
congestion of train robbers and
bank looters can be easily cured
by a little blood letting.

is good. This surpasses the ex

rate of attendance is maintained
until October 81, the admission
for the intervening period will be
at least ten millions. They are
more likely to pass that figure
than to fall short of it, as visitors
to the great show are pouring in
