Father Yorke of San Francisco . is visiting Father O'Ryan. Father Yorke ha. been all through Europe during dur-ing ihe past year. He preached last Sunday on the "Doctrine of Purgatory." , Ho said, in part: i "Purine this week the holy church j Ii I'rinps most forcibly before our minds j ' that we are all of one family, united by I oivnnon interests .throughout eternity, j Titer1 .are two great occasions, the feast of All Saints and' the commemoration of All Souls, which put us in commu-ji'i-at ion with the souls of all who have lived before us. All Souls has a special spe-cial meanins;, that of contact with death. The memories of our beloved dead are the most sacred thoughts of our lives, and the most tenderly sympathetic sym-pathetic chords of our .natures are touched by visions of those gone be-i be-i fore. "Each one of us has his own litany f saints and remembering the dear de parted friends, fells that he is not a stranerer in the life to come. On All Souls' day the church bids ns remem- l ' 1t the grief of the world, not forget-; I linir that according to the djvirVe words of Jesus Christ we are all brothers and I sisters. This. then, is the meaning of f -Ml Souls, that death is not the end of things. What a strange thing it would be if. when this whole world is a struggle strug-gle for existence, six feet of earth should finish everything. "What is all this rushing, working world but a strife to live and is it not most repugnant to die? W.v do every-tliine-beg, borrow, steal and even take the lives of others to live. We look with horror upon those who commit, suicide, even as we do upon a sentinel who has deserted his post in time of war. If all this civilization were to end 1 in six feet of earth, would it not be a j mockery? j "There are some who make them- j i Felves belieA'e that there is no after life. but the vast majority of people, sound ! in mind and body, belk-ve no matter what their religious affiliations may be I that beyond the grave there is an im- j nvrtal home. The rogue "who has dis-a dis-a sipated away his manhood -may. per- I j haps, be able to persuade' himself that j .'.-nth f fi- rnil.nf everything, but the , -healthful, natural and sensible instinct- ' , ively know better. Who c.-.n make the J i mother, as she gazes at her new born j i babe lying stark and stiff, who can i i make her believe that its life is gone I cut completely like a taper extin guished bv a breath of air from an open casement? "No, no, my brethren, this life is like the daybreak before the full and perfect per-fect day. At the death of friends or strangers there is among us all an Sn-st:nctive Sn-st:nctive questioning as to what has become of him, even as when on a chilly winter's night one has left the warm - room and gone out into the gloom and T coll. we wish to pull aside the curtain , I' ni peer out after the departed one. lj Wo ask ourselves. 'Watchman, what of the night?' From Christ comes the an-j an-j swer low and clear. 'Nothing defiled ' shall enter the kingdom of heaven.' and I we fear, for who is without sin? We think of our good friends who have gone before good, but also human and I we fear for them. Nothing soiled by I earth's journey may enter heaven. If there is no hope the outlook is sad. but Jod in his mercy always finds a way. I TliisTiry thought the holy church I pomts out to us in the doctrine of pur-" gatory. Nothing defiled may enter. ?, true but those defiled may be purged:. And those living may shorten the time iff purgatory for those gone before by their prayers and acts of goodness. I What a noble, uplifting thought it is: I I't th? hearts of men rejoice at the V opportunity. 1 5 read cast upon the : waters will return, and so if your hearts " have been soft, respensive and gener- I "us for .others whe-n'you have departed , the prayers of the living will' aid in shortening your time of punishnrnu ' and purgation, dewing you nearer to j that place wlfie the beloved . of - God !

P., who will be in Denver about the first week in December. Decem-ber. The visit of the Irishmen has direct di-rect connection with the movement inaugurated in-augurated in Ireland to erect a monument monu-ment to the memory of Charles Stewart Stew-art Parnell. Tallon and Redmond are acting as the ambassadors of the Irish j people in this matter. I The foundation stone of the pedestal I was laid last Oct. 8 in Dublin, in the I presence of 100,000 persons from all parts of Ireland. It is believed that the monument will be completed in about two years and plans for the statue will be submitted by American i sculptors. At yesterday's meeting en-! en-! thusiasm was abundant, and a Parnell 'monument committee was organized, with a strong and active body of workers, representing all the Irish-American Irish-American organizations in the city. S. J. Donleavy presided. He said he did not believe, much urging was necessary nec-essary to commend the object of the mission of Tallon and Redmond to the Irish-Americans of Colorado. He read a letter from. Mr. Redmond,, who said, among other things: "The project of a Parnell monument is in no- sense a party one. Justin McCarthy, Mc-Carthy, John Dillon, the Hon. Edward Blake and the whip of what has been known as the anti-Parnellite partv are amongst the treasurers, secretaries and executive of the movement jointly with my friends and myself. Still less is the project antagonistic to Wolf Tone memorial, of which we are all and have been from the first ardent supporters. "I am sorry to say the Parnell estate es-tate is about to be sold immediately in November, and we desire to obtain a fund which, in addition to raising a monument, will enable us to preserve the historic mansion of Avondale for the family to Which Ireland owes so much." The reading of the letter was re- i reived witn enters. The meeting then proceeded to the ejection of officers of the committee and the usual committees. S. J.
