MacCurtain, the murdered Mayor of Cork, who was shot. under such mysterious and dreadful circum- stances, was of a most. impressive" character, the procession being so im- mense that it took three hours to pass :1 given point, every ‘town and cor- poration ‘in, the country being repre- sented except Belfast. The Mayor died a very exemplary death. for after he was shot and lils assailants had dc- partcd, apriest was sent for and‘ in his presence the dying man forgave his murderers. ’ ,. v . The murder, denounced by the Bishopsand priests as all murders have been ’since.this era otoutragcs commeiiced, has caused ,a.deep and passionate resentment throughout the country... Every day now there is some victim. and curiously enough they are generally Catholics. This wave of crime against-Ii-lshrnen and Catholics. cvcn -women, too,'is of alien instiga- tion, and that habitual criminals are engaged in it. ' -Xvhat is bitterly resented in the case of the -Mayor-of Cork is the search of the house made by the military two hours later when the family were con- vulsed with grief over their‘ loss.

Using Concerted Strength on 0 Matters of Public Concern. (By..'x'. C. IV. C. News Service.) 'l'i'ashintgon, D. C., April 17.--A call for a conference of reprcscntativcsvyot all Catholic national men's organiza- tions, to be held in Chicago on Vvednes- day, May 5, has been sent out by‘ the Right Rev. Joseph Schrembs, D. 1).,’ Bishop of Toledo, chriirman of -the Department of<L'ay Organizations of’ the National Catholic Vvelfarc Council. The conference. the first of its kind ever held in America, will be for the purpose of mapping out ways and means whereby Catholic organizations may be enabled to act. in concert in matters in whlch,they have a common interest, and to reach definite conclu- sions on relations with Catholic organ- izations abroad. especially the power- ful bodies in Europe and South America. , Invitations have been issued to more than twenty-live societies of national standing for the conference, which will be held in La Sallc Hotel and which will probablylast two days . Bishop Schrcmbs' Statement. "The Department of Lay Organiza- tions has in mind not the formation of a new organization. nor any inter- ference with the autonomy of present organizations," ‘ declared Bishop Schrcmbs in discussing the forthcom- ing gathering. “But there are many common problems which our great‘ Catholic societies can meet as a whole. and there are many dangers to the Church, .which they can avert by. common action. Legislation, social service, education and the training o! our boys through the Boy Scout and allied movements are activities worthy of the attention of all our splendid or- ganizations. ‘ ' . --“Anational problem affecting Cath- olic : interests should be known to every-Catholic organization. Pi-'b.:it is being done in onescction of the coun- try should be a. matter of, informa-, tion and guidance to Catholics in every other section. ‘We are wasting; our ef-. forts and our opportunities if through lack of unity and conference our voice in matters of public concern expresses one opinion in one place and another in another place. Catholic ‘societies. lose half. their strength when. acting.‘ in acommon cause, they work sepa- rately land not as a unit." ’ Organizations invited. ‘Among the organizations that are expected to be represented at the con- ference are the Knights of Columbus, Ancient-Order of Hibernians. Catholic Order of Foresters, Catholic Kniglits of America. Catholic Mutual Benevo- lent Association, Catholic Young Men's National, Union, 'Bohemian Roman Catholic Union. Knights of St. John, ‘Western Catholic ‘Union. German Catli- ollc-Kniglitsot‘ St. George. National -Federation of German-American Cath- olics, Catholic Total Abstinence Union.

Youn;;vMen's<lnstitute. ,V:itional Alli- ance of Bolicmiaii Catholics. Catholic YounggMali's Association and the so- dality Union. ’ ‘ Much jot‘ the inspiration for the forthcoming conference has been fur- nlslied-by the splendid results achieved at the first-niceting of the National Catholic Women's Council. held here In Murcli, which was attended by more than two hundred delegates from all parts of. America. Among the prob- lems discussed at this-conference were the ever-growing‘divorce" evil, thenc- cesslty, ofprotectlng the niomls and mental and physical welfare of immi- grants and that of the working girl and child welfare.
