(Onahan, William J.): (Chicago, Illinois)
 to Bishop (John S. Foley): (Detroit, Michigan)

Onahan had written Archbishop Ireland, suggesting the importance of having resolutions carefully drawn out before hand, arguing even, that the matter be brought before the Cardinal (Gibbons). The Congress need not worry about the papers, which are only individual opinions, where as the resolutions will be official declarations of Catholic body. Therefore, to give the persons competent to draw up a declaration an idea of the principles, Onahan will send copies of the enclosed letters to J. Havens Richards, S.J., of Georgetown; Judge Jos(eph) F. Daly; and to Professor Hebermann, both from New York. Also enclosed is a memo of the principle points that should be covered, according to Onahan. He would prepare an address but doesn't have time. He is very anxious as the Congress draws nearer. The serious problems are the discussions and the Resolutions. He intends to leave for Baltimore on Nov. 5th or 6th.

Clarke, Richard H.: New York, (New York)
 to Henry F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Clarke was ready with his paper for the Catholic Congress at the appointed time, but the typewriter has delayed it a day. He encloses it herewith. He prepared it during a period of severe prostration and sickness and found it took a great deal of time because he had frequently to consume a considerable time in looking up a date or a correct name. While he does not feel well pleased with it-as he generally feels a little admiration for what he writes-still after so much time and labor he hopes it will not be unacceptable. How will Brownson return it to him, and when, The New York Catholic Club or other bodies will send delegations, he asks how they will procure tickets? He asks if the Catholics of Detroit can get up a lecture for (Eliza Allen) Starr?

Durin, M. S. H., Father J. H.: West De Pere, Wis(consin)
 to Henry (F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Perhaps Brownson has heard that the assistant of Father ( ) Anciaux after a journey to Australia and continual sickness in the islands of the Pacific has returned to America and is located at West De Pere. He is employed in propagating his favorite devotion to St. Joseph, Publishes the Annals of St. Joseph, and has the direction of an association for the propagation of the devotion. He urges Brownson, as one of the leaders of the Catholic Congress, to intorduce the devotion to St. Joseph to the list of matters to be considered. It is not simply a question of piety and devotion, but the Pope has spoken and decided that the intercession of St. Joseph is one of the providential means against the evils of the time. The problem of the day is how to conciliate capital and labor, wealth and poverty. The Holy Father points out the example given by St. Joseph. It should be indicated to the men of the Congress in order that talented men should meditate on it and clearly give the remedy to the people. He asks if it would not be good to offer the resolution that the Congress will by every means propagandize the Devotion to St. Joseph and that the third Sunday after Easter the Feast of the Patronage its members give the example of the devotion and zeal for his interests. Brownson will understand the spirit of this hasty letter and will contribute to this great good.

He decided to have his paper set in regular type; he incloses proofs of the article. He has timed the address, which will take him 50 minutes to deliver.

He hopes to have it back from the committee so that the type can be redistributed. The Baltimore Bureau of the United Press requested 300 copies; he leaves it to Brownson to decide about advance copies, and asks who would pay the expense of 300 copies. He sends triplicate proofs so the different members of the committee can use them. (No enclosures.)

 to W(illia)m J. Onahan: Chicago, Ill(inois)

 to H(enry) F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

W. L. Kelley, of St. Paul, Judge of the District Court, is preparing a paper on education. He is an able scholar and a loyal Catholic and will produce a good paper. Manifestly the Congress will be a great success. Providence inspired Brownson when he first suggested the idea. (William J.) Onahan, speaking for himself and (Henry J. Spaunhorst object to having the meeting of the 16th held in Detroit. They went East for the last meeting and think that others should now come West. The Archbishop joins with them hearily a meeting in Detroit means for him three days and three nights; a meeting in Chicago means one day and two nights. Brownson is asked to consult with Bishop (John S.) Foley and to do his best to have the meeting at the Grand Pacific in Chicago. It will be an easy matter to send out a second notice. The Eastern bishops, once on the t train, may as well come to Chicago as Detroit.

1889 Oct. 5
Wolff, Geo(rge) D.: Norristown, (Pennsylvania)
 to Henry F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Wolff sends in two separate envelopes full sets of proof-slips of his article complete. Proof-slips 4 and 5 of those sent yesterday should be thrown aside in as much as since sending he inserted new matter. The article requires 60 minutes to read as he would read it to a public assembly. He supposes it is entirely too long. The committee must decide that, if they should approve it generally. He has received another letter from the Baltimore Bureau of the United Press, stating that they have made arrangements with Brownson about the 300 copies. He suggests that since he has incurred the expense of having his paper put into type, which is still standing, additional expense would be saved-if it meets the committee's approval-by having the 300 copies struck off here. The type is now in galleys awaiting the proof-revision. The Norristown Herald printing house tells him that it will make very little difference as to cost whether they run it through the press in the form of book pages or as it now stands. In regard to actual cost he knows nothing except that the cost of type-setting with them is 30 per 1000 inches-in Philadelphia it is 40 and they intend to charge him little more than he actual cost of labor and material. He wishes to hear from Brownson as to the above and also whether a decision as to his paper can be reached before the regular meeting of the committee on the 15th. The type could not remain undistributed for so long a time. P.S.: he sees blunders in the proof affect the sense but has no time now to correct them.

Lynch, Father J. S. M.: Syracuse, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to W(illia)m J. Onahan: (Chicago, Illinois)

Bishop (P. A. Ludden) has referred Onahan's letter of September 9th to Lynch for answer. Lynch sends the names of John A. O'Reilly, Syracuse, N(ew) Y(ork), and of Nicholas E. Kirnan, Utica, N(ew) Y(ork), as choices for Vice-Presidents (from the diocese of Syracuse) to the Catholic Congress. Lynch asks Onahan to try to have both men attend as Vice-Presidents, since they are equally high in his esteem. The Bishop and Lynch wish Onahan success in his great under taking. Lynch suggests as a topic for discussion the subject of saving young men after their leaving parochial schools. He deplores the fact that after thousands of dollars are spent on a Catholic Education, young men are lost to the Church.

P.S. Lynch was a fellow passenger with Onahan on the "City of Paris." Lynch saw his cousin, F(athe)r Conaty (?), who is interested in the Congress.

Miss Alice said the league is not in her parish and that she knew of no promoter in Baltimore. She has the daughter of Doctor Farrell, a Halifax surgeon in class. He successfully operated on Mrs. Conrad. Sister showed her the note on Madame Emma, who died in Halifax, to which she remarked, that Sister was mistaken and that cancer can be cured. In 1845, she saw Sister Apollonia Diggs, who told of her cure. Sister saw Mr. Coffey editor of the London, Ontario, "Record". He thinks Father George Kenny or Father Daugherty, S.J. will be asked to replace Bishop (John) Walsh.

Foy, Peter L.: St. Louis, (Missouri)
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, (Michigan)

Foy is sorry that Brownson is to stand alone against the Bishop in the forth coming tournament; it is impossible for him to appear. Foy told him long ago that he would make no fight against them, but that he would not agree to any innovation they made on the program adopted in June, unless on the temporal power question, which innovation was simply their retreat from a false position, they had taken up. He cannot see of what use he could be at this next conference. If their committee has any independence of action. Brownson can conserve it simply by declaring "non Possumus." Brownson is authorized to speak for the whole committee and has (M. J."Harson's proxy and Foy's.) If everything is decided by a majority vote he has no chance. Foy's reason for bringing forward the idea of a reconsideration at Baltimore is the certainty that he and Brownson will be much stronger there than in Detroit, James Doyle of the United Press, Baltimore, proposed that Foy should furnish him with about 300 copies of his paper sometime in advance of the Congress. Foy fenced him off and is totally opposed to giving out the papers in advance. They ought to be read at the open meeting before publication and ought to be published in book form as a memorial volume. (Daniel A.) Rudd lectured here last night and made a good speech. He will attend the meeting of the 16th. Foy scolded him for giving his proxy to Onahan and urged him to stand by Brownson on every point. He said he would, but like many others, he is a weak reed when a bishop blows.

She has been remiss in writing to her brother. She hears about Onahan through visitors; Mr. ( ) Colmary of Baltimore was enthusiastic about him; Father (A ) Croke of Chicago thinks Onahan is the backbone of Church and State. Dr. ( ) Reilly of Detroit, Treasurer of the (Irish) Land League called there. He spoke of Onahan's visit to Detroit. He is another victim, not to the cause of Ireland, but to the mad ambition of one individual. She realizes more and more how Providence kept Onahan out of the miserable business. Father (Arnold) Damen (S.J.) received the last Sacraments, but rallied. Their bishop, (James O'Connor) is in Philadelphia; his health is very delicate.

Edes, Ella B.: Rome. (Italy)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Edes will give (Eva) Mariotti six dollars and will keep a franc in payment for her paragraphs in the article. She was surprised to find in the latest Ave Maria the interpolation in the article and poured out her woes to Professor (James) Edwards. They concluded that Hudson did not like the remainder of the article and remembering that Edes had been Roman correspondent for the (London) Tablet, supposed her the author of the account of St. Januarius and so inserted it. Edes' curiosity regarding the article signed "E" was aroused because she neither remembered reading or translating it. The older she gets the more treacherous her memory. She was born December 7, 1832. Edes was charmed with Professor Edwards. She regrets that he was unable to see Cardinal Simeoni. Edes Presumes Hudson has learned the names of the five new western bishops. The utmost secrecy prevailed about the appointments, not even the Vice Rector of the American College was told, until the decrees were made and Archbishop (John) Ireland was notified by Simeoni of the appointments. The secrecy grows out of the system inaugurated in the Catholic News of cabling information of appointments obtained fradulently the day the nominations were made by the General Congregation of Propaganda, and before they received papal sanction. Father (John) Zar—detti, who is in Rome, Was informed of his appointment by Propaganda and will go to Einsiedln, Switzerland, where he will be consecrated. The other nominees, Father (Joseph) Cotter, Father (James) McGolrick and Father (John) Shanley are all of the St. Paul diocese, so the Archbishop will be sure of obedient suffragans. The Freeman's Journal reports Ireland has sailed for Europe. She thinks he would want to be present for the Baltimore Festivities and the inauguration of the celebrated university. Perhaps he is coming over for the Murat (Mary) Caldwell wedding which is supposed to occur in October.

Onahan, W(illiam) J.: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

Regarding rates from Michigan, arrangements have been made for the "fare and one third rate, certificate plan" with all the traffic associations of the country, except the New England association. Michigan is included in the territory of the Central Traffic Association which has already granted the rate for all its states, except Michigan. The Michigan Association by resolution recently decided that after October 1, 1889 they would not recognize any rate for a religious or delegate convention made by the Central Association. Hence they immediately addressed George H. King of this city, secretary of the Michigan Association, who refused to grant any rate at all. A personal call on him was made and he stated that he, as Secretary, could not grant the rate and must act only under instructions from his association. It was suggested that there were many people to go from Michigan, particularly from Detroit; and if they were discriminated against in this manner, there would be much disappointment, upon which King promised to bring the matter up at the next Association meeting and to do what he could. If Brownson can do anything to arrange a rate for Michigan prior to that time he should do so. A final effort was made to secure a lower rate than 1 1/3 fare and to make it "open", abolishing the certificate plan, but the Trunk Line Association, in whose territory Baltimore is and which makes the rate for all, after careful consideration, refused to make further concession.

Allen, Heman: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to H(enry) F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Allen received Brownson's letter last night and likes the suggestions. He will merely say a word on each point. (1) He likes Brownson's emendations exceedingly and begs him to change as he suggests: Viz., in place of "for the words must be distinctly heard" say "in such manner that the words cannot be distinctly heard," if he thinks he will be better understood. It meant it is forbidden for two or more voices to be singing an entirely different set of words at the same time, as in Haydn's 7th and Mozart's 9th Masses—in the Credo and Gloria respectively-each voice takes up the piece at a different point, thus shortening it very much. And generally it is forbidden that the voices should be singing so that the words cannot be distinctly distinguished. Allen believes that Palestrina avoids this in spite of his fugato style; he is not very familiar with his works but his impression is that he did not write long fugues and indeed, strict fugues at all, but only fugatos. (2) When he says that music is an essential part of the Holy Sacrifice, "Allen means, of course, of High Mass. It cannot be High Mass unless it is sung. "Only guides" is in anti thesis to "it does not distract." (3) He does not think it is possible to lay too much stress on the importance of Church music. The usual Church music is a sign of the worldly spirit of the congregation, of the times, and of the cloven hoof, and it helps create that worldly spirit. Therefore, the matter must be most important. (4) Allen did not know that Millenuim was rejected by the Church. If so, he would wish to change what he says. (5) Hymn means the music and the music and the words, not the words without the music, If he remembers correctly "dicere" is used for both singing and saying. He believes that Our Lord—as in everything He did-merely complied with the custom of the Jews in singing at meals. Allen adopted this beautiful picture idea of Our Lord and His disciples singing-their hearts filled with adoration and reverance-as a kind of text for his paper: if he leaves that out, the paper would be like a watermelon squeezed dry. This picture appeals very strongly to the imagination. But he will study it up and write again tomorrow.

He has some friends in Baltimore and Philadelphia to whom he would like to be able to offer seats. If Brownson hasn't got them, please answer, so that Dunne may apply elsewhere, for he must get at least four seats, if possible. He judges from Brownson's letter that Bishop (Richard) Gilmour made a personal objection to him, an objection personal, independent of the paper. He cannot understand that, but Brownson's letter reads that way. He is waiting to hear from Brownson by telegram after the meeting of the 16th.

As the letter is not marked "answered," he writes to acknowledge his oversight. Although (Charles-Marie Allemand) Cardinal Lavigerie has delegated Rudd to represent him and his work at the Congress, it is now too late for him to write a paper in time to submit to the advisory committee next week. He was in St. Louis last Sunday and Monday and met (Peter L.) Foy and (Henry J.) Spaunhorst. He doubts if either of them will be able to meet with the several committees in Detroit, on the 16th. Rudd will be present if possible.

Wolff, Geo(rge) D.: Norristown, P(ennsylvani)a
 to Henry F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Brownson's letter of the 5th went astray and has just arrived. Had it reached Wolff earlier, it would have saved him from troubling Brownson with several superflous letters. He thanks him for the card to the Congress. He entirely agrees with Brownson's idea of the desirability of having a really lay Congress and sympathizes with him in his disappointment, owing to the fact that bishops take in its preliminary arrangements and in the Congress will prevent its making the impression on the non-Catholics which otherwise it would. But while the Catholic laity as a body are worthy of being trusted by the ecclesiastical authorities, yet there are among them some very rash and restless spirits who force themselves to the front and care little whether their speeches and actions are prudent or imprudent, provided they can make themselves prominent. Wolff is inclined to think that the danger that this might occur, and the success of this first attempt to a Catholic Congress in this country might thus be wrecked, Justifies the precautions that have been taken. In a future Catholic Congress it will not be necessary to give such prominence to episcopal supervision and advice. Brownson will be able to congratulate himself on the results of this Congress for good and not the least of which will be its preparing the way for future Catholic Congresses.

Wolff, Geo(rge) D.: Norristown, (Pennsylvania)
 to (Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Michigan)

He agrees entirely with Brownson's idea of allowing writers the largest freedom consistent with prudence, but he was entirely ignorant of what the committee had to do to keep "furious Franks and fiery Huns" from not shouting or throwing dynamite promiscuously. He was personally prepared to submit to any restrictions. He is glad to learn Brownson thinks well of his paper; he discusses possible changes. He warns Brownson against news gatherers who might not be trusted as (James) Doyle of the United Press; Brownson should also consider subordinates who may be cajoled, cheated, or bribed. P.S. Is Wolff a member of the congress? He has received no notice or invitation. It is possible that communications to his office have not come to his attention. He asks about readers of the papers.

Brownson's letter of May 19th inviting Mallet to attend a meeting of the committee on organization of the Catholic Congress was not received until long after the date of the meeting, Mallet them being in the Indian country travelling from place to place on official business. He now writes, although tardily, to acknowledge the receipt of the letter and to beg Brownson to hold him excused from any suspicion of lack of interest in the project, since his return to his home in Washington he has learned that the Congress is an assured success, and he greatly rejoices at it. He has several letters from the Eastern States which indicate that great interest is being taken in the movement both by bishops and eminent laymen.

They were glad to see the article in the Ave Maria exposing (Edward) Clifford's indelicate and dishonest book on Father (Joseph) Damien (De Veuster). His reticence on (Charles Warren) Stoddard's "Lepers of Molokai" struck them because it was through Stoddard and the Ave Maria that De Veuster's work became known to the world. She offers to send Hudson the funeral oration on De Veuster delivered by a Jesuit.

Martin F. Morris, L.L.D., is named as a secretary to the Catholic Congress, from Georgetown College. Onahan is requested to send notice of Morris' appointment to Morris and Richards. Since Richards believes that Western Colleges are sending Alumni as delegates he will follow their example, and in a few days, will forward the names of two delegates. He asks, however, would it not be preferable to send also some faculty members of the college along with the Alumni?

Richards states that Georgetown also has a separate law, and medical department. He asks Onahan if it is permissible for these colleges of the University to send their own delegates. He states that it would be to their advantage, as well as to that of the Congress, since there are many eminent men attached to these departments. However, Richards does not wish to be granted special privileges, and requests Onahan's advice on the matter.

Allen, Heman: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to (Henry F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

Allen thanks Brownson for the interest he has taken in getting his paper in good shape. Mrs. Allen returned from the East yesterday and his plans for an afternoon's leisure broken up, they called on Father (B.) Baldi O.S., the new superior of the Servites, who confirmed Brownson's opinion of the Millenium unhesitatingly and said it was a heresy. So he has Brownson to thank for preserving him from having to read a public recantation of heretical tenets and of being perhaps considered as the promoter of a new heresy. From the first he did not like his allusion to the Millenium. He has changed it in a way which is sound in theology and better in every way. Regarding the "different words" point, he has it right now and merely changed it to read, "It is forbidden, where it is possible to avoid it, to sing different words at the same time". He has not heard as much Palestrina music as Brownson, but what he has looked at does not contain fugues but only imitations and fugato passages and the words as a rule come together. Certainly they always come so as not to disturb the sense of the text. In saying "at the same time", he means, of course, simultaneously. With reference to "Hymno dic to", Allen will let it all stand. For (1) the burden of proof would lie on any one objecting to the idea of our Lord joining in with His disciples. The text says, "Having sung a hymn, they went"; (2) we know that Jesus always complied, with perfect humility, with all the usual Jewish customs, such as circumcision, presentation in the temple, etc. Why should he not join His disciples in the usual Song of Praise at the Pasch? We really cannot imagine Him as sitting still while His disciples sung; (3) Father Alfred Young takes for granted in the Catholic World that He did sing. Allen has changed the "essential" point somewhat, but will work at it more. In his "picture" the lights, processional cross, procession, the singing of the Preface all show that he is speaking of the solemn form of High Mass. He gives the change he made and also gives the "Millenium" paragraph as he has changed it.

Her friend Mr. ( ) Perkins of Detroit wrote her about his conversation with Brownson. She prefers to lecture in a parlor rather than a hall. If Mr. and Mrs. (Michael W.) O'Brien feel so inclined as to offer their parlors, she is sure they would want a dollar a ticket, since they can no doubt seat a hundred easily; the lecture should not fail to bring Starr $100. She will try to send Brownson some reports of her lectures this fall. The first was held in her new auditorium the 15th. She speaks of the clergy present, and describes her hall. In March at a testimonial to her, she lectured in Mr. Nathaniel Jones' new house; 678 one dollar tickets were sold. All of her friends and pupils were present, it was quite unique. She speaks of another occasion in St. Louis. The 25th of November would suit her best, since she has two lectures in New York the 18th and 20th.

Franciscus, C.S.C., Father P(eter) J.: Aboard the Paquebot Poste La Gascogne
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

To repair "Sta. Brigida" would be above his strength. Franciscus told Father-General (Edward Sorin, C.S.C.), when he was visiting there that he would not spend one cent to repair the house but would sell it and buy a suitable place for their purposes. Sorin gave his approval. Franciscus can buy a villa in the healthiest part of Rome on the Esquilinian Hill between St. Mary Maggiore and St. John Lateran's for 40,000 francs. The discalced Carmelite Sisters who bought the house have strict enclosure. They have written permission to ask all the Bishops of the United States to allow two Sisters to collect in their dioceses to raise funds to pay for the house. Franciscus trusts that Hudson will favor the Sisters with a recommendation in the Ave Maria. Were it not for them, they could not have got rid of "Sta. Brigida". He will begin Canon and Civil Law next month at the Appolinaire. Father (Frederick) Linneborn is ill; he expects to get his D.D. degree next July. Let Brother Leopold (Joseph Kaul) favor Hudson and Father John with a box of the best cigars each and send the bill to Franciscus. He does this in consideration of the sale of Sta. Brigida for 120,000 francs and the purchase of the new residence which shall be called Sancta Croce. In 1887 it was sold for 75,000 francs, now they get it for 40,000 francs.

Harson intends to write to a number of gentlemen next week about attending the Congress, and would be glad if Brownson would send him 25 or 30 sheets of the Official letter paper, if he can easily spare them. His train was three hours late in arriving in Buffalo this morning. He arrived at Rochester at noon and called at the residence of Bishop (Bernard J. McQuaid), but he was out of town. Monsignor (H.) De Regge is in Europe, and Father (James F.) O'Hare has been pastor of Immaculate Conception Church for several years. Harson left Rochester to spend a few hours here and will leave at 10:30 direct for home.

 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Final copies of his paper have come to hand—one for (W. H.) Hughes, one for the United Press, if Brownson thinks that proper, and one for the committee. Wolff is not silly or unreasonable enough to expect that more time will be allowed for reading his paper than will be allotted to others. It will take 60 minutes; he will read it over and mark in red ink parts which may be omitted without destroying its unity and will send Brownson a marked copy, should the Committee have arranged for some one else to read the paper. But regarding its being published, he wishes it published as a whole. P.S.: He has struck out paragraphs where he had repeated himself, has added a new topic—advocating a great Catholic daily newspaper—and has rewritten the concluding paragraphs. He would be glad if Brownson would glance over it and send him his impressions. Instead of three, he sends only two and will send a third tomorrow, as only three have as yet been delivered.

When Edwards arrived in Paris he found a letter from London stating that (Henry) Cardinal Manning desired to see him again, together with a letter confirming the sad news of his father's (Paul S. Edwards) death. In answer to Edwards' prayers his father came into the church on his death bed. Edwards enjoyed his trip to Rome and will never forget the happiness he experienced while at the feet of (Pope Leo XIII). (Ella) Edes, Monsignor (Germano) Straniero, Father (Peter) J. Franciscus,C.S.C. and Doctor Quigly made his stay pleasant and profitable. He plans to sail from Queenstown for the United States on October 31 aboard the SS City of New York.

He fears that he would not be able to reach Chicago until after the Congress is over. The Australian Church is greatly interested in the giant strides of the Church in the United States. He wishes the Congress success and adds that some day he would like to visit the United States. He has many friends among the clergy.

Onahan, W(illiam) J.: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Charles Herbermann: New York, (New York)

It is a pleasure to find Herbermann's name among those who will attend the American Catholic Congress at Baltimore. Onahan surmises that Herbermann has seen in public journals, the list of subjects on which papers will be read. It is expected that delegates will discuss the subjects, whether any votes of concurrence or dissent will be taken, is not known. However resolutions will have the authority of the Congress. Therefore, the resolutions need to be carefully drawn, and no mistakes can be afforded. Onahan does not feel that this should be entrusted to the off hand work of a committee, but instead to one of several capable men—hence the purpose of the letter. Onahan suggests the preparation of an address including the subjects on which the Congress may be expected to speak, as a public body. Other men will also be called to submit papers, as members of the Committee on Resolutions.

It is added that copies of this letter have been sent to others.

Foy, Peter L.: St. Louis, (Missouri)
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

The opinion Foy formed sometime ago is strengthened by Brownson's statements of what took place at the last meeting. (James) Cardinal Gibbons and his entourage are at least opposed to the Congress, and if it were not thought that the meeting of so many prominent laymen would add eclat to the centenary, they would experience open hostility from his Eminence. He does not know whether it has occurred to Brownson that all this intermeddling with the Committee on Papers is a flat usurpation. When the Committees on Papers and organization were constituted there was no thought of making one subordinate to the other in any way. Therefore, the appointment of the supervisory committee was without warrant of authority. It implied that the Committee on Papers could not be trusted and that the whole power was in the hands of the other committee. He asks about the meeting of the 16th. The solitary criticism offered was puerile in the extreme. Foy agrees that it was absurd and unpolitic to confine the vice presidents to one nationality. He does not know or care what (Henry J.) Spaunhorst or (Daniel A.) Rudd will say to it. Their acquiescence would not relieve the thing from the flagrant claims expressed of it. He suspects the Bishops are opposed to a permanent organization. (W. H.) Hughes of Detroit has written about a memorial work of the Catholic centenary and Congress he proposes to publish, and has asked for a photograph of Foy and an autobiographical sketch. He has not answered him yet because he thought it best to wait until he heard from Brownson. He is very much indisposed to write anything about himself and abhors self-advertising from the bottom of his soul. He asks further questions about the actions taken. Evidently Foy and Brownson will have to be in Baltimore several days before the 9th. The telegram from Detroit in the Globe Democrat said the adjourned meeting would be held on November 2d. Foy intents to leave on the 3rd or 4th for Baltimore, because it is highly desirable that Brownson and he be there in good time. He hopes Brownson will find it convenient to be there by Tuesday or Wednesday morning because one will be able to do little or nothing without the other. If Brownson is in favor of an earlier date, Foy will not object, for he remembers that (William J.) Onahan will be on the ground from the first of November. P.S.: If the Congress publishes the addresses and proceedings in book form, will there be room for Hughes' volume?

Hyde, (John): Detroit (Michigan)
 to (William J.) Onahan: (Chicago, Illinois

Hyde thanks Onahan for the invitation to the Catholic Congress. He would not give it for much money, which is the American criterion of value. In last week's Mich(igan) Cath(olic) was a brief report on the meeting of the Advisory Com(mittee) last Wednesday. Bishops (John S.) Foley, Camillus P. Mais, Richard Gilmour and Matthew Harkins were there, as well as (Henry F.) Brownson and ( ) Harson. (Daniel) Rudd was there for a moment, as was M. W. O'B(rien). Hyde was not there, learning the details later. Brownson and Harson took seven papers that had thus for been written before the meeting. When the Bishops were seated, the production of the papers was called for. Brownson refused, stating that it was improper for the Bishops to require the papers to be submitted, and that the appointment of the Advisory Com(mitte) was not necessary, and that whole business was impertinence, implying doubt of the laymen's ability. This surprised the Bishops, except Bishop Foley who had anticipated it. Addressing Brownson, he demanded that the papers be submitted, or that Foley would walk out, and refuse to attend the Congress, and speaking for Cardinal (Gibbons), that he also would not attend. There upon, Brownson produced the papers, which were read. This cast a cloud over the meeting which lasted for the day.

While Hyde was waiting in the Mich(igan) Cath(olic) office for a report on the meeting, Brownson gave a promised report, from which Hyde learned the story. Brownson made remarks of self justification with Harson, and blamed Onahan for suggesting the Advisory Committee.

The following morning (Thursday), Brownson and Harson walked into Hyde's office to submit a matter on which they differed, to Hyde's judgement. The question was: Mr. O'Brien, of the Baltimore Cath(olic) Mirror, acting for the Baltimore Press and the Associated Press, and Mr. Doyle, acting for the United Press, requested copies of the papers written for the Congress. Harson was for this, as well as Hyde, but Brownson objected a did Mr. ( ) Hughes, Hyde's employer, who was in the next room. Brownson and Hughes seemed to be displeased with Hyde's assertion that for the benefit of the Congress, the papers should be given to the press. However Brownson maintained that the press would interfere with the work of the Congress, which view Hughes approved. Hyde seconded Harson's original view. However, Hughes is about to publish a "Souvenir" of the Congress, to which Brownson also had business relations. Hyde was ignorant of this fact on Thursday morning. Hughes also maintained that Mr. O'Brien's paper, The Mirror, which had been running an "ad" stating that it would publish the paper (of the Congress) in full, would interfere with his (Hughes') "Souvenir." Harson argued that no private interest like the "Souvenir" should be permitted to interfere with the important work of the Congress. They finally left Hyde's office without settling the argument.

He presumes his superiors would permit him to attend if invited. But in any case it would give him great pleasure to have Brownson call on him on his way to or from Baltimore.

McMillan, C.S.P., Father Tho(ma)s: New York, (New York)
 to Henry F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

No doubt the Catholic Congress will have something to say in expressing the convictions of the laity concerning the spread of good literature; and it might not be out of place to mention the utility of preparing suitable lists of the best books, to be circulated through some central organization. When a publisher displays enterprise in getting out a fine book or when an author displays genius in writing one, Catholic reading should make a prompt response and show that such efforts are fully appreciated. This is one of the most obvious results which will be produced by an organization such as the Columbian Reading Mission. A bond of contact may thus be established among reading circles, libraries and individual scholars, and demands may be formulated to increase the supply of good books by Catholic writers. Father McMillan hopes this matter will not be overlooked, feeling as he does very keenly that there is a need for a movement of this kind.

Starr, Eliza Allen: (Chicago, Illinois)
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

She is more than gratified by the cordial manner in which Mr. and Mrs. (Michael W.) O'Brien have responded to the call for a lecture in Detroit. She is quite certain that everything will be arranged to her taste and that the result will be satisfactory. She has chosen "Three Rivals in the Year 1400" for her subject, the same that she gave in New York. The whole tone of Brownson's letter was delightful, but she had not heard directly from the O'Briens yet. She shall write to Mr.( ) Perkins also; he is confident the lecture will be successful. The Catholic Congress will engross Brownson's thoughts until it is over. She sends regards to Mrs. Brownson and Mrs.( ) Barnard.

(Stone) C.P., Father Fidelis: Orange, N(ew) Jersey
 to Father(Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Fidelis looks upon Hudson as the noblest man he has ever met. The memory of Hudson's kindness and courtesy to Father Edmund (Hill, C.P.) and him together with memories of their visit to Notre Dame will abide with them always. Troubles in family affairs and in Congregation matters have prevented his writing sooner. It will be impossible for either of them to retrace their steps and give a retreat at Notre Dame. They are going to return to South America in a couple of weeks, which will cut short their collecting tour. Hill is at present in Maine, while he is on his way to Philadelphia and Baltimore. He thanks Hudson and the subscribers to the Ave Maria for their response to their appeals. Stone thanks Egan for the letter of introduction to Father (P.D.) Gill and (William) Onahan, whom he was unable to see while in Chicago.

S(toddard), C(harles) W(arren): Cov(ington), K(entuck)y
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Stoddard received the money but he is in need of more. Fraulein Marie Wendheim is a Catholic and her uncle was prince Bishop of Prague. She and her sisters have his miter and other souvenirs. Hudson may be thinking of Frau Wilhelmine von Hillern, her mother was from Birch-Pfeifer, whose plays still grace the German stage. Stoddard discusses the autobiography entitled "A Checkered Life". Rossiter Johnson should be grateful to Hudson not to Stoddard, for Stoddard did nothing in the affair.

Carroll, John Lee: Ellicott City, M(arylan)d
 to W(illiam) J. Onahan: Chicago, Ill(inois)

Carroll regrets that Onahan will not be able to visit Maryland before the Congress. There are some matters which Carroll would like to discuss with Onahan. Carroll has prepared a short address to deliver when introduced as Temporary Chairman. Were Carroll to be named as permanent chairman, the address could serve for both honors. He asks by what rules the Congress will be governed, or if it is an open question to be decided by themselves. According to Cardinal (James Gibbons), there would not be any discussion on the papers read nor extemporaneous speeches made. Carroll would like to know the order in which the proceedings will be arranged. He will be glad to greet Judge Carroll. The Judge is well known to John Lee Carroll's cousin, Miss Harper, and the families were connected many years before in Ireland. (Envelope attached.)

Merz, Father E( ): Sydney, Australia
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Though a stranger he feels confident he will be welcome in pleading the cause of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart. Their French Annals years ago described the ceremony initiated at Notre Dame on the occasion of the coronation of the statue of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart. A few years ago their society began its work in Australia by erecting a church at Randwick under the title of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart and shortly thereafter the Archconfraternity of Our Lady was established. Merz requests Hudson's authorization to publish in the Australian Annals, the organ of the Archconfraternity, such articles from the Ave Maria as would be good for their people.

Schreiber is sending Hudson a short account of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Africa at Algiers. The incidents related will have additional interest because of the prominence that (Charles) Cardinal Lavigerie has lately achieved. About a year ago Hudson took an article on the Angelical Salutation that he sent through Father (Richard F.) Clarke, S.J., editor of the Month and Hudson expressed to Clarke the desire to have something more from the same pen.

Tello thanks Brownson for his official suggestion. He has today asked Father (John Bannister) Tabb, of St. Charles, Howard Country, Maryland, to read his paper. He is a convert and an American. The day will come when the Church will need her active and independent laymen. Will there be many zealous ones left at that juncture? He will notify Brownson of conclusion.

Waldbott of Bassenleim, Count Frederick: St. Andreas near Burges, Belgium
 to William J. Onahan: (Chicago, Illinois)

The Count longs to visit the United States, and would enjoy celebrating the centenary of The Hierarchy of the Catholic Church in the United States. The Church was grown under the beneficent action of liberty; and to meet the champions of the Church, as well as to show his spirit of Christian international agreement and union. He is deeply distressed because he will not be able to attend. He hopes, perhaps to attend a future Congress, and there to express his admiration.

(Brownson, Jr.), Orestes (A.): Dubuque, Iowa
 to Henry (F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

Henry's kindness in sending the account of the flag raising at the Brownson school is duly appreciated. Orestes has been on the point of writing several times since Henry left; but as he takes up his pen, he sees Henry before him again, and no pen scratching can compensate for the pleasure of his visit, and he can only ask when will he come again. He supposes Henry will soon be off for the Catholic Congress, as he sees notices of him in its connection from time to time. Orestes trusts all Henry's family are well. Sarah (Brownson) lives in town now and is Mrs. Sarah Ziegler. Only Rosa and Charley (Brownson) to comfort Maggie and Orestes in their old days. Rosa says she will not marry and Charley is now too busy growing to do much else. He is the tallest of his children now. Henry must not forget to send an account of the proceedings of the great lay Congress, as Orestes will enjoy everything connected with it hugely. If he did not thank Henry for the portrait of their father (Orestes A. Brownson) and the Latin and Greek Testament he so kindly sent and of which Orestes is most fond, he does so now.

Foy, Peter L.: St. Louis, (Missouri)
 to H(enry) F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

The letters of the bishops are enclosed. One of Foy's reasons for putting in an early appearance in Baltimore is to read the papers; another is to work in favor of having the next congress meet in St. Louis—Detroit is his second choice. He is utterly opposed to Chicago and would rather see it go to New York than to Chicago. He wishes Brownson would tell him on what day he will be in Baltimore, as he does not care to arrive there before him. He will stay at the Renner, which is near the Cathedral and central. Is not Brownson making a mistake in trying to bring out the memorial volume in such hot haste? To be well done, the work must be done with care. Foy sends a photograph, but that is all. His paper is not yet finished, and even if it were, he is too lazy to make a copy of it. He intends to finish it next week. P.S.: Why not a "memorial" instead of a "souvenir" volume? Why introduce a French word when a better English word is available?

(McQuaid), Bishop B(ernard Joseph): Rochester, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Archbishop (Michael Augustine Corrigan: New York, New York)

(McQuaid) will not be at the meeting on the 7th. He does not intend to leave home or write until the case of Father (Louis A.) Lambert is settled. For some weeks, secular papers have been saying that (McQuaid)'s provision for Lambert would not be accepted. (McQuaid) offered Lambert through the Propaganda -1) Scottsville, with a fine church, residence and cemetery, and pew-rent of $1100; 2) Victor, with church, residence and cemetery and pew-rent of $1400 to $1500 annually. In an financial point of view, both these places were better than Waterloo and (McQuaid) has no other place to put at his disposal. When the Pope approved the decision, he said Lambert should have a small parish. The decision sent to all through Cardinal (James) Gibbons, that a movable pastor may be removed to an inferior Parish, no longer holds good. Father (Richard L.) Burtsell came to Waterloo to help Lambert's cause, through (James) Kelly and (William) Dempsey. After Kelly and Dempsey refused the mild punishment imposed on them by (McQuaid) for bringing Father (Edward) McGlynn to Waterloo, (McQuaid) interdicted them. Burtsell then drew up an appeal to the Propaganda declaring the interdict null and void. So begins more litigation. (McQuaid) will not resign. They can depose him as soon as they please and he will be happy to lay down the mitre. (McQuaid) holds that no submission has been made. (McQuaid) asks that what is to be done is done quickly. When all is over, he will publish in pamphlet form all the documents in the case. (McQuaid) has little to say in regard to( ) O'Connell. He came to the diocese from Southwark about 1871. O'Connell was sent from here for drunkenness about 12 years ago. (McQuaid) denies O'Connell's claim on the diocese. This is not the first time he has tried black-mailing. Why he rakes up poor Smelzer's case is hard to say. (McQuaid) longs for the day when he can lay down his burden.

She has received no word from the Catholic Publication Society regarding her story "Two Schools". Mannix never heard anything about her manuscript sent to Murphy.

The question of printing a card or program of the papers to be read at the Congress has doubtless occurred to Brownson—a program for distribution among the delegates. It would be too late to print this after they get to Baltimore. Onahan understands they are to meet there Saturday morning, November 9. He hopes to get there a day or two beforehand, although he is sadly hampered by public business. There will be a very large attendance. Chicago sends ICO, St. Louis 75, St. Paul 30 to 50. The East of course will be represented by big delegations.

(Onahan, William J.): Chicago, (Illinois)
 to John Lee Carroll: (Ellicott City, Maryland)

As stated in the memo sent by Onahan, there is much work to be done in the Congress for the two day sessions. The first day will be taken up in organizing com(mittee)s and listening to speeches of guests. Then, the "papers," Which cannot be considered for the first day, will take up the entire second day, even thought no more than ten were to be read. The reading will be dull and there should be discussion on the more important ones. It will not do to let the impressions go abroad that members are not free to speak their minds on the subjects before them. One must assume that the Congress will be composed of Catholics, Loyal to their faith, and instructed in catechism. There will be a larger number of qualified men, and it would be a blunder to fail to bring forth the greatest minds for discussion after the reading of a paper. Then Onahan mentions some of these men, leaving out Baltimore's and Washington's, assuming Carroll to know those. Some of them may arrive early, therefore, those likely to be called upon to speak, should be notified. More expected guests are mentioned.

The Com(mittee) on Resolutions must be carefully chosen, since blunders cannot be afforded. (Attached are five typed carbon copies.)

Wolff, Geo(rge) D.: Norristown, P(ennsylvani)a
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Brownson's reply relieved him greatly; he might have been guilty of want of good judgment. What he wrote was not deduced from Brownson's letter, but was suggested by some of the invidious and exceedingly ill-judged quibbling in some of the Catholic papers. The letter from Baltimore to the N(ew) Y(ork) Times, evidently written by a crafty dissatisfied Catholic, served as his text. He does not like to take extracts from other papers because he does not wish to engage in controversy. He agrees with Brownson about the committee of bishops; they should be simply advisory and not undertake to direct or manage. If this seems inconsistent with remarks in other letters, it is because he had in mind men on the Atlantic coast whose prominence is equalled by their rudeness and recklessness and who seem to think that skill in raising a row and flinging mud demonstrates their intellectual ability. His paper could be cut in half, but he had it printed up as he composed it. His two great faults are diffusiveness and discursiveness. He will read his own paper if he is able.

Clarke, Richard H.: New York, (New York)
 to Henry F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Clarke would like to be informed of the order of proceedings at the Congress, when his paper will be reached, how those having papers will report, and to whom, at the Hall, whether they will have seats on the platform, and such information as Brownson may possess; also how seats at the Sunday celebration at the Cathedral can be procured. He has almost lost his voice from illness. What shall be do in case his voice fails—get some one to read the paper for him? He finds the delegates here, who had a meeting last Sunday, are seeking information as to the details. He thanks Brownson for helping (Eliza Allen) Starr.

Dutton, (Ira B.) Joseph: Kalawao, Molokai, Sandwich Islands
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He is glad that Hudson met Father (Francis X.) Dutton. Father Wendelin (Moellers) spoke of sending Hudson a note of thanks for the bell. Dutton rings all the regular bells at the Church, so he can not judge the range of the sound but understands it is heard to Kalaupapa; the tone is excellent. Hudson's notice of (Edward) Clifford's book is not a bit too severe. Dutton was unfavorably impressed with Clifford from the time he arrived at Molokai. Fr. Damien, Father Lambert Conrardy, and James Sinnott took care of his needs. It was thought Clifford was an Episcopalian, but when he returned to Honolulu, he preached at a Calvinist meeting house. Clifford corresponded with Conrardy and Sinnott and once wrote to Dutton, but his book does not give a true picture. He requests Hudson send the Ave Maria to Mother Marianne. Dutton received a letter from Sister Aurelia in Elyria, Ohio who expressed the desire together with eight others of her community to come to Molokai, but with Bishop (Hermann Koeckemann's) approval he discouraged them. Concerning attacks on Father (Joseph Damien) De Veuster, after seeing Hastings' letter and consulting (R.W.) Meyer, it was determined to let the matter rest. The writer of the harsh charges is Doctor C(harles) M. Hyde of Honolulu, President of the Pacific Missionary Institute. Bishop Koeckemann recently had a newspaper controversy over school affairs with him in which Hyde was worsted. Dutton has no photographs, but can get copies from J.J. Williams in Honolulu. Miss Elizabeth Harper of Brooklyn, New York had pictures made from a portrait of Damien. Doctor (Godwyn) Swift's negative of the death bed is unserviceable. Dutton does not know the origin of the sketch of his life that was published in New Orleans, Memphis and Chicago newspapers.

Since Keane had heard from Onahan that John R. Walsh had not received their invitation, Keane, who thought it was sent a month or so ago, requests Onahan to let Walsh and all friends in Chicago know that attempts were made to reach them, and all are especially invited, especially Kavanagh. He wishes well for the Congress and asks remembrance to Mrs. O(nahan) and Mollie, and hopes to see Onahan on the 13th.

E(dwards), J(ames) F.: Cork, Ireland
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Edwards has had an interview with (Henry) Cardinal Manning. Since landing in Ireland, He has met relatives of Sister Hortense of St. Mary's, and the Hutchins of Chicago. Professor England has made his stay pleasant. He hopes to arrive home early in November. Monsignor (Robert) Seton was in England during August. Mr. Fairhurst of the Catholic Times asked Edwards to request Hudson to send one of the copies of the Ave Maria directly to the London office, when all the notices are written. Edwards met Dr. R(ichard?) Howl(e)y in London, as well as Father (David) Fennessy of St. Mary's College, Kentucky, who informed Edwards that Dr. Quinn of the Gregorian Society fame had died in Australia. Rome decided the Bishop (Bernard) McQuaid should give Father (Louis A.) Lambert a better place than Waterloo. Doctor Quigly gave a supper in Edward's honor, while he was in Rome. The guests were the new Papal Nuncio to the Netherlands, Fathers (Peter) Franciscus, C.S.C., (Frederick) Linneborn, C.S.C. and Lambert. Edwards saw Bishop (John) Zardetti and was the first to get the new Bishop of St. Cloud's blessing.

Gallagher is sorry that Catholics lack enthusiasm, but it is a very busy time of the year, and distance and expense are considerable.

The assurance of such a prospect awaiting him in America will enable Hawley to borrow money to procede on his journey. He hopes to be at Notre Dame a few weeks after Edwards.

O'Connell, Daniel:
St. John's College, Waterford, Ireland
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Cork, Ireland

He was disappointed in not meeting Edwards. He had expected Edwards' visit for he had heard of him from his brother Patrick O'Connell of Notre Dame. His brother told him of the great work Edwards was doing in the Bishops' Memorial Hall and asked him to look for a souvenir of Bishop (Patrick) Kelly, first bishop of Richmond and later bishop of Waterford. The Bishop appears to have left no personal remembrance of himself. He is grateful for the offer to take a message to his brother.

Enclosed is a copy of that letter; also a copy of one previously addressed to Tho(ma)s F. Daly, Professor Herbermann and others. Attached is a memo regarding Onahan's views as to the lines in which the resolutions should run. Onahan had written to Archbishop Ireland, pointing out the importance of putting the matter of resolutions into proper hands. Onahan is anxious to have no mistakes, and appreciates the solicitude of Cardinal (Gibbons) on that point. Everything shall pass satisfactorily, so far as Onahan can influence and direct the Congress. The Congress should not feel restrained. The Catholic laymen may be trusted to act prudently and resolve wisely in accord with Catholic principles. (No enclosure.)

Jenkins and Hill met while Hill was giving a three day retreat to the boys at Manhattan College. Hill traveled to Calais, Maine where he visited Sister M. Francesca Angela, R.S.M. whom he had not seen in eight years. He has learned from Stone's latest letter, that because yellow fever is raging in Rio de Janiero, they will return to Argentina by way of England. This will enable him to see Amy (B. Hill).

 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The attacks on Father (Joseph) Damien(De Veuster) are fiendish, surely there is no bigotry like anti-Catholic bigotry. Stoddard thinks it best to ignore the attacks. Father (Henry W.) Cleary's article on his retreat into the Pyrenees is the most pleasing Stoddard has read in many a day. Stoddard had a letter from Bishop (John Joseph) Keane in which he asked Stoddard to join him in Washington about the 5th. (Theodore) Dwight writes inquiring when Stoddard arrives in Washington, for he wishes to be the first to welcome him.
