I CITY OF DENVER. Diocese of Denver to Help Starving Irish Peasants. y Last Tuesday Bishop X. C Matz, e hend of the diocese of Denver, an- I nnunreil his intention of asking all of of the people of his diocese to do their 51 tn lost toward helping transport to Iwland the potatoes which the pener-S pener-S pus Colorado farmers .have promised. About two weeks apo the Denver Times conceived the idea of securing froi ) the husbandman of northern Colo-J Colo-J rado. who have experienced a partic- v 0 ularly prosperous season, a sufficient a quantity of potatoes to avert imined- I ( iate starvation. A special commissinn- t ji er was sent to the farming' district and c j he secured the pledge of the farmers r t that if money enough to transport the 1 potatoes to Ireland could be raised, c i they would donate 200 carloads. Ao j cordingly the Times set about secur- r i ing by popular silt soiiption the re- a ; quired fund. If tin- potatoes can be s transported to Galveston the govern- a i meiit has promised to carry them to f i Ireland for the relief of the famine- ; stricken people. Already about $1,000 ( i has been subscril this purpose f i and Bishop Mar ii d his aid so t 1 that the entire ai:n in! -;:n be had be- l i fore lonp. - i ( i The plan of the T was unfolded t 3 to Bishop Matz lai Saturday and he t 1 looked carefully ir.to it before lending I ( 1 his indorsement. "Me tlien announced 'i t j that on Sunday nent he vill direct that i f ' a circular letter 'oe reau from the pul- I I - pit of every church in his diocese ask- 1 in;r that every person contribute ac- 1 cording -t) his means to help along a I ' worthy cause. Bishop Matz is familiar t with the heartrending stories of the I : famine in Ireland brought about by the I 1 failure of the potato crop, and he is very much in sympathy with the work. The church throughout the United 5 Plate is extending its sy.npathy to the famine-stricken people, but this is 1 about the first move to secure material aid for the unfortunates. The letter is now in course of pre- I paration and will be sent broadcast, i 1 The pastor of every church in the state ' will be furnished with a copy of the ' letter and it will be read for the benefit ben-efit of every congregation. A mag-f mag-f nai.imous response is looked for when f the letter of the bishop is published. and it is likely that Colorado will do herself proud in coming to the relief of the stricken people in Ireland. 1 Two Prominent "Women Dead.
