BY IRISH PAPER

London May 13. The article In the
Irthh People William O'Brien's week-
ly which led to the seizure of ail the
topics of the paper was regarded as
being i-.a bitter by the majority of the
members of the house of commons that
a motion to read and discuss it was
The article on account of its bold
attacK on King' Edward and Cardinal
Vnughan wns the all-absorbing topic
in London today. The correspondent
for The Scrlppg-MeRao Is nbln to
give some of tho personalities in which
Editor O'Brion indulged in tho article.
They were abusive attacks on King
Edward. Cardinal Vaughan and the
address to the king which tho paper
declares was such as might have boon
presented to a Legree half a century
ago. The artlclo. finds consolation in
the fart that tho presentees wore Eng-
lish Catholics "whcaro repudiated by
tho only really Catholic nation now in
existence. The loyalists represented
England only and If tho English
Catholics chooso to acknowledge
themselves suporetitluus idolaters it is
.no fault of ours."
Bitter Attack on Edward VII.
In the course of the artlclo Mr. O'-
Down upon his knees boforo an old
and bald-headed roue lover of overy
woman of fair features who has ap-
peared in English society for forty
yvurs. Including titled dames and as
yet untitled actresses the English

vorce case tho polluted hero of one of
the most maladorous scenes In Zola's
rotten Nana' tho centor of a score of
the most disgraceful scandals of the
most contemptible type down in front
of this English king whose latest pub-
lic performance was to Btlgmatlzo on
his solemn oath tho wholo Cntholic
world as superstitious idolators knolt
tho English-born cardinal prince of

have been presented to n Logroo in a

but contented of Harriet Beechor
Stowe's great story who would have
seen his black skin stripped off. Inch
by inch rather than put his mark to
a document that signed and presonted
by Cardinal Vaughan and the duko of
Norfolk on his solemn oath." We do
not believe ho attached the slightest
solemnity to t ho performance
Fearful Arraignment of King.
But the fact remains this old worn-
out descendant of a raco of scoundrels
and practical professors of hideous Im-
mortality asservoratod that most of
the sacred doctrlnos of tho Catholic
faith were idolatrous and superstitious.
He has not yet recanted. Ho has not
said a word to Indicate that ho did not
thoroughly approve of tho terms of
the oath framed In tho days of Titus.
The bath of a perjurer Is no less v'lo
than that of the reigning king but on
bended knees tho prince of tho church

able person. Let us console oursolves
with tho fact that tho presentees were

Sortpps-McRao Pre Ass'n.
Washington May 18. When la New
Mexico President McKlnley Was furn-
ished with unmistakable evidence of
the fact that there ia universal de-
sire among the people of that territory
for statehood. Prominent among the
decorations in the president's honor
were declarations of the popular feel-
ing on the point' and this was so all
pervading that the proaldent was forc-
ed to notice it in one of hfs speeches
In which ho alluded approvingly to
the popular desire and demand. For
a number of years thew hare been
efforts at every sosslon of congress to
secure the passage of a bill to admit
New Mexico to the Union.
The mtfvement brought ont a de-
mand for the admission of Arizona also
and Delegate Dennis Flynn has been
'urging that Oklahoma bo admitted to
I statehood. Bach of these territories
'has the statutory requirements Xm
I their ad nils ton has been prevent
' mainly for political reasons New Mx
ico has been democratic and repijull-
can in turns. Arlsona may be re-
garded as democratic and Oklahoma
as' republican. As from the partisan
feeling that operates from Uraa to
time when the question of admission
is presented to congress the addition
of six sonators to the upper branchVof
congress is viewed most seriously
men of nil classes and shades of polit
ical opinion. Bnsod on tho census of
1000 Arizona and Now Mexico would
bo entitled to one roprosentativo in
the house. Oklahoma would be entitl-
ed to two for its population is 208000.
Arizona has 123000 and Now Mexico
140.000. The population of Arizona is
below tho nurabor fixed as a ratio for
roprosontatlpn but it has nearly four
timos tho population of Nevada and ex-
ceeds that of Wyoming by 26000. In
these figures no account of the Indians
in the territories Is taken.
Statehood would be of vast Import-
anco to the thrue territories named
and would removo many obstacles
that now stand In tho way of their
ftioro rapid development. Each of
thoni havo a largo varloty of naturnl
resourcos and there can be no doubt
whatever of their ability to maintain
stnte government and to meet every
obligation that statehood would im-
pose. The effort to secure an admlslon
to the Union will bo renewed next
wintor with fair prospects for sue-
coss. The three territories are all
entitlod to admission undor the law
and the precedents and as there will
bo no presidential campaign to con-
front tho Fifty-seventh congress the
partisan fooling that obtains during
tho Hfo of a "Pressldentlal Congress"
will not havo to bo reckoned with. If
not admitted by tho next congress
these territories most assuredly will
bo left out until the presidential elec
tion of 1904.
