John Rush. In responding to the toast,
"The Catholic Lsity." spoke of the work
the members of the rhurth have to do to
present the truths tai'ght by the church to
the people at large and dwelt upon the
necessity for liberality united with an un
compromising spirit of faith In the church.
Father P. A. MrQovern, who responded to
the toast, "The Catholic Knight," said that
In order to attain the hlgheet desire the
Catholic knight would have to fight more
deadly battles than those ln which tho
crusaders Joined; that no treaty of peatre
can be made with the world, as the true
knight must conquer or be overcome.
The closing toast was by T. J. Maboney,
who anoke of the "Catholic Cltlien," on
which he Insisted that the Catholic Ameri

country; that this Is not a place of refuge,

I thank the Knights of Columbus for
honoring me aa their 'guest. There are
many Catholic - societies in the t'nlted
States having; divers objects. There has
arisen an association which has spread as
rone other has, the Knights of Columbus,
wherein a Catholic can rind hla spiritual
and moral uplifting and where, I am told,
he finds Instruction In the catechism. Well
has It chosen the name of Columbus. Co-lumbus-.was
actuated by a love of Clod, a
love of rjuritry and the extension of
Christianity and the swuy of. Spain over
the lands where he was to plant the cross
of Christ. He sought first the kingdom of
God but he did not exclude personal gain.
That is the spirit of the Knights of Co

country and their personal advantage. Tho

Christianity you are anchored in all duties.

I haft Ihe-"honor to have gone to Rome
to discuss with the holy father questions
which have arisen ln regard to the Philip

Catholic country in the world? Who could
have seen that the United States would be
brought Into close connection with the
pope of Rome over questions of politics and
religion? These results have followed.
There waa during the first year a great
deal of agitation among many Cathollca
concerning this unprecedented movement.
There were some who imagined Uncle Sam
was going to Home to browbeat Leo Xlll.
Some made public announcement of fears,
some expressed confidence ln the pope'a
diplomacy, forgetting that when the pope
takes under consideration a matter that
matter becomea a reserved case which
should not be touched upon till the pope
From Rome came a desire to come Into
contact with Washington, to discuss these
questions. The cardinal secretary of state
wrote a letter to Archbishop Ireland asking
him If It were not possible to discover
America's Idea In regard to these matters.
The archbishop thought such a meeting
waa Justifiable. The letter to Archbishop
Ireland met a letter from him relating to
a conversation with Prealdait McKlnley
and Secretary Root, asking a similar ques
tion. . That waa the beginning of all this
matter. That waa before the great and
loved president fell at the hands of an
assassin. Then came delay and It was
decided that a commission would be sent
to Rome to Interview the churoh author!
! In resant to the Questions. Bo the
commission went to Rome, received aa ex
traordinary envoy. Governor Taft was
entrusted with a personal letter from the
president to the pope, with congratulations
and a present of the works of the presi

these the personal works of the president.

to s-tva deeds and aet rid of the property.
Questions arising from this had to be

from which he came. Thus he loom like

'Arbitration is doubtless to ue com

willing to let our neighbors arbitrate. Yet
when you have reached that atage at which
both parties are willing to arbitrate, as

Mr. Fregaard, - secretary of the United
Typothetae of America, was called upon.
Typothetae has never been arbitrary or
unjust," said he, "although sometimes it
resists the demands you make upon it.
Our organization results from yours; we
must have it in self defense agaiast you.
Yet that is no reason why there should be
any permanent antagonism between the
two associations. They are not always at
variance. As men to men ws should beon
good terms, and it rejoices me to see this
harmony here tonight.
"Regarding this arbitration, let me say
that It never satisfies entirely both parties
to it. By its very nature it cannot. Each
side must yield, something. It is a case
of bear and forbear. 3o neither you em
ployers nor you rflnUra must expect to
get all that you wanted. You'll never get
that by arbitration."
President Lynch was among the laat
speakers. Said he: "We printers have
been gently rebuked here several times
tonight for being so slow in coming to
this idea of arbitration, for going on a
strike at all. Let me explain that. We
had heard much of the genial Mr. Fregaard,
but had never seen him. We wanted to
have a look, ao went on a strike. He im
mediately appeared, and now we arbitrate.
"I am glad to aee the employers' asso
ciation arbitrating through a national rep

with local members. Where em

complish mora and accomplish it quicker.
Those who are willing to give us the fair
thing will sweep along with those who are
not, and compel them to do It. Thus often
Typothetae does our work for us.
