Last ovcnlng at tho Whlto Pelican
hotel, Ireland, tho best loved nation
on earth, was the subject of n schol
arly and ablo lecturo, dollverod by
Rev. J. V.'Molloy. "Tho Causo ot
Ireland in tho Light of Reason," wna
the subject and whon Father Mol
loy summed up his reasons for "Ire-,,5
land a Nation," thero was nono In
tho largo audlenco who did not agro
with tho eloquent orator that Ire
land's right to freedom was Just and
that Justice will eventually prevail.
It was tho first time that Father Mol
loy nppoared on a public platform
slnco coming to this city and ihosa
who wcro privileged to bear him
recognlzo In him one of tho most bril
liant orators of tho west. At times
ho stirred tho audlenco almes: to a
frenzy ot enthusiasm as with logic,
wit and scarcasm he pleaded ,the
causo of tho Emerald Isle.
In opening he made clear that th
Irish question was not a religious
question nt all, that those who spread
this Idea wero neither honost nor
honorable. When Catholic Belgium
stood off Lutheran Germany, tho
smug friends of England saw no re
ligious issue then, but they affect t
see ono when In the name ot Christ
men protest at tho murders In Ire
land. Furthermore, Emmltt, Wolf
tono, Parncll, Griffith and countless
others ot tho leaders never wer
Catholics, and among those in pri
son today Is Dr. Irwin, a Presbyter
Ian minister ot Ulster.
If might makes right, then Eng
land's title to Ireland is clear. But,
If, ns Christians, wo hold that might
Is not always right, and thnt enrth
ly success Is not nlways n gauge ot
dlvlno approval, Albion's title may bo
examined with, an cjo to Justice, tor
In morals a conqueror's or a thief
title to land or to property Is al
ways spurious until the rightful own
ers acqutesco in the transfer;.
A God-Crentcd Land
"Now everything that makes Den
mark or Roumnnla or Servla or Bel
glum a nation tn found in Ireland.'
said Father Molloy. "Indeed, the es
sentials ot nationality are more evi
dent In tho caso ot Ireland than la
'any of theso others. They were set
up by men, whllo the Irish, being a,
distinct and homogenous race, at
whnt they nro nnd whero they An
because ot the designs ot God."
The nationality ot tho msn-mada
state ot Bolglum was cited as Just
cause for shedding oceans of humaa
blood, but tho nationality ot tho
God-made Iroland Is only provoca
tive. In too many unfair minds ot
slander and dorlslon.
Tho .Majority Decides
With arch and ogre-llke pomposity,
It Is said that tho Irish do not agree.
Everywhoro elso the rights of ma
jorities, especially when there is a
question ot a man's love ot llbarty.
nro looked upon as suprorae. It Ire
land, In Justice, must wait for tho
conplalsance ot tho tiny Orang'j mi
nority, then Mr. Harding should bo
lookod upon as a usurper until every
rock-ribbed democrat became a re
publican. America's Duty
"Tho United States In this matter
has a duty to Its bettor self," con
tinued tho Bpeakor. "The ancestors
of evory citizen here fled from mo
sort ot European oppression and
came hero seoklng jmlltlral or eco
nomic freedom. Their children havo
no right to slight th) call ot thoso
who aro deprived of all that freedom

United Statos has nlwayj honored
thoso who woro Booking Independ

clear In this regard that It needs no
explanation. But now, because we
have bocomo so solf-contented. we
must neods chide the Irish bocausa

er ugalnst which wo fought, nnd
soek tho same things that .o sought!
