"PACING- THE TWENTIETH CENTURY." CEN-TURY." Father Lambert, in the Freeman's Journal, speaks as follows of the pamphlet which has just been issued by the American Truth Society of New York: The American Truth Society has published pub-lished in pamphlet form two articles written by Father Malone of Denver, and Father Yorke of San Francieco, in reply to King's "Facing the Twentieth Century," one of those anti-Catholic books that appear occasionally like the measles or other epidemic or endemic disorder. The two articles diagnose correctly King's case and supply the proper antidote. an-tidote. The trouble is those 'who need the antidote meet arcnot likely to take it. or even to know of its existence. Their appetites ar vitiated by prejudice, preju-dice, and pre4udi!b loves to feed on that which nourishes it, and abhors everything that tends to destroy it. Like the appetite vitiated by drink, it longs for more of that which vitiated it. Hence, while these articles of Father Malone and Father Yorke will be read by Catholics who will be pleased and instructed by them, they will not, to any great extent, reach the readers of King's book. Like the confirmed toper, they prefer the stimulant to the antidote.. anti-dote.. John Henry Newman describes this kind of people in his portrayal of "The "Prejudiced Man." "The prejudiced man," says that great Englishman, "takes it for granted not only thijt he himself is in possession, of divine truth, but that we who differ from him are universally imposters, tyrants, ty-rants, hypocrites, cowards and slaves. This is a first principle with him. . . Nothing can shake it. If he meets with any story against Catholics on any or no authority which does but fall in with this notion of them, he eagerly catches at it. Authority goes forothdng; likelihood, like-lihood, as he considers it, does instead of testimony; what he is now told is just what he expected. Perhaps- it is a random report, put in circulation merely mere-ly because it has a chance of succeeding, succeed-ing, or thrown like a straw to the wind; perhaps it is a mere publisher's speculation, specu-lation, who thinke that a narrative of horrors will pay well for the printing; it matters not; he is perfectly convinced con-vinced of its truth; he knew all about it beforehand; it .is just what he always said; it is the old tale over again a hundred times. Accordingly, he buys it by the thousand and sends it about with all speed in every direction to his circle of friends and acquaintances, to the papers, to the great speakers at public meetings. He fills the Sunday and week-day schools' with it; loads the peddlers' baskets, perhaps introduces intro-duces it int the family spiritual reading read-ing on Sunday evenings, consoled and comforted by the reflection that he has got something freslh and strong and undeniable in evidence of the utter odiouaneKS of the .Catholic religion." It is for readers of this kind that King's book 1b fitted, readers who take his bald assertions as gospel truth and never ask for authority or proof, and who do not want to see disproved the stories and statements that chime frith and feed their prejudice. On this account ac-count articles like those of Father Malone Ma-lone and Father Yorke are not bought and read by those who most need the Information they would give them. This fact, it seems to us, imposes a duty on Catholics. It is to purchase those cheap pamphlets published by our Catholic Truth Societies and supply their Protestant neighbors with them. In this way every Catholic can help to dissipate prejudice, remove objections and make the Church and 'her principles prin-ciples better known. Father Lambert's suggestion is indeed a good one, and the Intermountain Catholic recommends the suggestion to its readers. Persons who are desirous desir-ous of obtaining the pamphlet may do so by addressing the American Truth Society, St. James building, 1135 Broadway, Broad-way, New- York. A .
