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

Copus offers Hudson a serial story for the Ave Maria. He has five books ready for publication. He insists on using the name "Cuthbert" because he does not believe in putting anything before the literary world merely on the strength of the "S.J." at the end of one's name.

Dorsey, Ella Loraine: Washington, D(istrict of) C(olumbia)
 to R( ) C. Kerens: (St. Louis, Missouri?)

Copy. Dorsey is constantly appealed to for information about her mother Anna Hanson Dorsey. Of late the questions most constantly asked involve matters of state. Dorsey asks Kerens for information on Porto Rico and Cuba. General (Leonard) Wood's action in Cuba makes it evident how earnestly he is trying to be just. What orders were issued by the government to repress looting and punish offenders in the Philippines? Father (William D. MacKinnon had defended the American soldier at home. Why is no Catholic put on the Philippine Commission? Why have Catholics only 3 of 26 chaplains in the Navy and 2 in the Army?

O'Kennedy, Father R(ichard): Fedamore, (Ireland)

O'Kennedy has recovered his sight in his defective eye. The first number of the "Holy Cross" has come to hand. For November "The Other Life" is being copied. (Joseph?) De Maistre ought to prove interesting. O'Kennedy knew his grandson, a young Jesuit; he had a devouring passion for mechanics.

O'Brien, Father John: Winchendon, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

President (Charles William) Eliot of Harvard sends a review of "Oraciones Catolicas", recently made by Hudson in the Ave Maria, which he wishes O'Brien to reproduce in the "Sacred Heart Review". In it Hudson says that the time is coming when the need of denominational Universities will not be felt. The last sentence appears somewhat strange. O'Brien is disposed to republish Hudson's complimentary mention of Eliot. But he can hardly believe Hudson wishes his language to be quoted as it certainly will be in favor of Harvard as against Boston College. To them Eliot appears to have one thing in mind: to get the Catholic young men to attend Harvard. His utterances show him a thorough agnostic or worse.

Kerens, R( ) C.: (St. Louis, Missouri?)
 to Ella Loraine Dorsey: Washington, D(istrict of) C(olumbia)

Copy: In no instance has Kerens been able to find that either the President or his cabinet have ever discriminated against people of their faith. Archbishop (Placide-Louis) Chapelle, the Apostolic Delegate, visited Cuba and Porto Rico and the assurances he received from the administration are declared to be satisfactory. Father T(heophile) Ste(n)mans, secretary to Chapelle, says the U.S. authorities have tendered every courtesy to the Archbishop. The orders of the government against looting our churches in the Philippines and elsewhere are specific and call for severest punishment of offenders. On this point Kerens refers Dorsey to Father George J. Blatter of South Chicago, who journeyed to the Philippines to observe conditions. Blatter says that in only one instance were Americans accused. Sargeant ( ) McCarthy, a Chicago boy, and Rob Dunsworth accused some of the volunteers from the Pacific slope of being guilty of unwarranted appropriation. However, in no case was anything of the kind tolerated. The spoliation must be blamed on the insurrectors. This week there was found in the baggage of (Emilio) Aguinaldo a collection of valuable chalices and vestments. Congress gave no instructions to the Philippine Convention. Prominent Catholics declined the President's offer of positions on the commissions. There are four Catholic chaplains in the army instead of two. President William McKinley appointed two of these chaplains and was instrumental in having President Hayes appoint Father (Edward J.) Vattman. Father (William D.) McKinnon was appointed to fill the last vacancy. The socalled Brooke Marriage Law in Cuba did not originate with Governor (John Rutter) Brooke. In promulgating this law Brooke was convinced that he was acting according to the wishes of the Catholic people of Cuba. The American Protective Association is bitterly opposing McKinley for having unduly favored Catholics. On this point Kerens refers Dorsey to Father (Thomas James) Conaty. They (Catholics) should ask no privileges, but merely that to which they are entitled by law. That they have received this under the McKinley administration Kerens believes to be true. Dorsey has noticed the calumny disseminated by the Democratic Party to the effect that Archbishop (John) Ireland is supporting (William Jennings) Bryan. This is false and in line with the whole campaign of falsehood in reference to the Republican Party.

(Doyle, William T.): Milwaukee, (Wisconsin)
 to (Henry F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

In regard to the letter of Aug. 30 Doyle admits with qualifications that etymologically substantia is equivalent to hypostasis. He encloses a number of quotations from Newman's "Arians of the 4th Century." In regard to the explanations quoted from a French paper, Doyle would say that the same word is used in two different senses.
