DO YOUR DUTY. 

(Registered in accordance with the Copyright Act.) 

If you have a task to do, 

Do it right; 
It may be this work you view 

With affright; 
But your conscience, Sir, is there, 
And, if with it you'd be square, 
Work away with all your might : 
Do your task and do it right. 

If your dad has bid you hoe 

At a row, 
And there should be none to throw 

Blame or show 
How it is you've not been true 
To the orders given you, 
March in honour 's pathway bright : 
Hoe your row and hoe it right. 

You are launch 'd upon this world 

In life's boat; 
Though on rocks you may be hurl'd, 

Keep afloat; 
Do not let your courage fail you, 
Though the stoutest foes assail you ; 
Whatsoe'er may be your fate, 
Steer your boat, and steer it straight.

Mbat 1bome IRuIe will mean for 3relanb. 




AIL 1912! — Ireland's year," such is the cry so fre- 
quently heard nowadays in the Emerald Isle. After 
the threshold of obtaining their heart's desire — 
many years of perseverance the Irish people are on 
Home Rule. What a noble battle has been fought! Sometimes 
the coveted prize seemed to be within grasp, at other times it was 
almost lost sight of. But not even for a moment did Erin's sons 
give up the struggle; they continually kept in mind the well- 
known axiom: "Persevere and success will surely crown your 
efforts." 

It was back in the seventies that Sir Isaac Butt, an Irish non- 
Catholic member at Westminister, first commenced the agitation 
for Home Rule for Ireland. Since then, Parnell and Redmond 
have faithfully kept Ireland's just demand, before the British 
Parliament, and, indeed, before the eyes of the entire speaking 
world. In the past, the Veto Power of the House of Lords has 
been the one obstacle to the granting of Home Rule, but happily, 
by the Veto Bill of recent date, the Upper House has lost its ob- 
structive and preventative powers. The present Liberal Grovern- 
ment is pledged to pass a Home Rule measure, and the Rt. Hon. 
Augustine Birrell, chief secretary for Ireland says: "At the very 
earliest opportunity next session the government will introduce 
a Home Rule Bill, and I am sure that the government will have 
the people of Scotland and Wales behind them." Mr. Asquith, 
the Prime-Minister, declares that the "very earliest opportunity" 
will be on April the ninth or tenth. Is it any wonder then that 
true Irishmen the world over rejoice and cry out — "Hail 1912! — 
Ireland's year." 

Now what will Home Rule mean to Ireland. Those opposing 
the measure predict terrible things, but every student of history, 
and every fair-minded man is of the firm opinion that it will 
bring hapinpess, contentment and prosperity, to a hitherto perse- 
cuted people. The benefits are many. There are some of imperial 
importance, some of national importance, and some of local im- 
portance. 

Home Rule will encourage Irish loyalty. Ireland is a part of 
the Empire in name only. Centuries of persecution has created 
an intense feeling of hatred against the persecutor — England, 
and even today this feeling is still fostered in many Irish breasts. 



UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 203 

Irishmen have fought against Great Britain in every war for 
hundreds of years back, and God knows they cannot be blamed 
for having done so. The Irish-Americans look upon England with 
loathing, and it is mainly on account of this unfriendly feeling 
that all efforts to make trade and other treaties between the 
United States and Britain, have so far proved useless. Now if 
England does away completely with the present method of gov- 
erning Ireland, by granting Home Rule, it will be the signal for 
Irishmen in every country of the world to forget the past. Those, 
subjects of the British Empire, will become loyal and true, those, 
subjects of other nations will become friends with England, and 
thus the great impediment to the union of the English-sneaking 
nations will be removed. 

The deadening influence upon Ireland's prosperity f " ' 1850, 
has been the continual exodus of her sons and daughters to for- 
eign It Is. Before the famine, the population was over eicr'it mil- 
lions : tod?' it barely reaches the four million five hundred 
thous I mar Although steps have been taken in recent years 
to chc . this i.,.tional evil, the success has been only partial. Now 
Home Rule is the true remedy for the evil. Irishmen will not 
emigrate to distant lands when they can live and prosper on their 
own dear soil, and when the government of their native land is 
just in their own hands — in fact many wandering children will 
return to the Emerald Isle. Ireland will be a nation within a 
nation, and her sons and daughters, will strive to make her 
glorious. 

Now when emigration has ceased, prosperity will come to the 
land of St. Patrick. The real wealth of a nation lies in its agricul- 
tural lands, so that the more farming done, the wealthier will be 
the nation. According to the report for nineteen hundred and 
ten of the Minister of Agriculture for Ireland, "the decline in 
area of land under cultivation has been almost exactly in relative 
proportion to the decline in population." A deserted farm is a 
common sight. Thousands of acres of excellent wheat land have 
been converted into pastures, and the greater majority of farms 
are five, or under five acres, in area. The first act of the Irish 
Parliament will be to correct this condition of affairs. The de- 
serted farms and the pasture lands will be reclaimed to agricul- 
ture, and many poor men will become prosperous tillers of the 
soil. 

Since eighteen hundred and one, Ireland has been governed 
by the British Parliament. Formerly such a slight matter as the 
opening up of a new road or the building of a small bridge had to 



ao4 UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 

first receive the approbation of the Imperial House. Of course 
much of this strictly local business has been put in the hands of 
the county councils, but even today the draining of a river or the 
construction of sewer in Dublin must first be authorized in Lon- 
don. Such a system of government has its evils. ]\Iatters of na- 
tional importance have ben held up for days, perhaps for weeks, 
at a time, while petty affairs have occupied the attention of the 
House — and contrariwise, people in certain parts of Ireland have 
suffered great inconvenience, and have been put to considerable 
expense because needed improvements were delayed. The Irish 
Parliament will do away with this cause of complaint. It will 
deal with purely Irish affairs and everyone will be satisfied. It 
will control its own expenditure thus insuring a better and more 
up-to-date Ireland. 

It is the intention of the government, to give Ireland control 
of her customs. Such an act would be only just, as it would give 
the country an opportunity to encourage manufacturing and to 
make advantageous commercial treaties with other countries. 

The bitter opponents of Home Rule claim that such a measure 
will mean Rome Rule — and that the Catholic majority will perse- 
cute the Protestant minority. Now, the English government, 
during the past half century or more, has not passed a law affect- 
ing the Catholic Church in Ireland or the Irish people without 
first consulting the Pope — and yet the Orangemen have continued 
to prosper in Ireland. As for the charge of bigotry and persecu- 
tion on the part of Catholics, it is nonsensical. Sir Horace 
Plunkett says: "My own experience distinctly proves that it is 
no disadvantage to a man to be a Protestant in Ireland and that, 
where opposition is shown by Roman Catholics, it is almost in- 
variably on political, social or agrarian, but not on religioua 
grounds." No, Irish Catholics will not treat their non-Catholic 
fellows with injustice— rather will they make overtures of friend- 
ship — and, address them thus: 

Come, pledge again thy heart and hand, 
One grip that ne'er shall sever, 
Omr watchword be — "Our native land." 
Our motto — "Love for ever." 

And let the Orange lily be 
Thy badge, my patriot brother; 
The everlasting Green for me; 
And we for one another. 

J. A. Tallon, '14.

MONG the many poems from the pen of that eminent 
Irish Catholic poet, Aubrey DeVere, none stand forth 
with greater pre-eminence than the one entitled "The 
Children of Fochlut Wood." Whoever has become ac- 
quainted with the writings of this distinguished au- 
thor, must have noticed that he is imbued with a deep love 
his race, his country and his God. Especially does he 
show this in the present legend and by combining the beauties of 
poetry with the various incidents and tales which arise, he makes 
this subject a suitable one for brief consideration. 

The story is briefly as follows: St. Patrick makes way into 
Fochlut wood by the sea, the oldest of Erin's forests, whence 
there had been borne unto him, then in a distant land, the Chil- 
dren's Wail from Erin. He meets there two young virgins, who 
sing a dirge of man's sorrowful condition. Afterwards they lead 
him to the fortress of the king, their father. There are sung two 
songs, a song of vengence and a song of lament; which ended, 
St. Patrick makes proclamation of the Advent and of the Resur- 
rection. The king and all his chiefs believe with full content- 
ment and the maidens go to a convent where they live a life of 
sacrifice. 

In the beginning of the Legend De Vere makes a most beauti- 
ful comparison, by comparing Fochlut Wood to the life of man. 
After dwelling on the darkness, density and gloom of Fochlut 
Wood he goes on to say, 

"O life of man, how dark a wood art thou! 

Erring how many track thee till despair, 

Sad host, receives them in his crypt-like porch at nightfall." 

St. Patrick travelled many days through the wood, being 
continually haunted by a doleful wail, which he says is the cry of 
the Irish race, calling forth to him for Christian faith. The 
Saint immediately advances towards the wailing and 

*'Ere long they came to where a river broad, 
Swiftly amid the dense trees winding, brimmed 
The flower-enamelled marge, and onward bore 
Green branches 'mid its eddies. ^ 



200 UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 

Here, St. Patrick meets two beautiful maidens who recount 
to him the story of their grief, which is chiefly concerning the 
sorrowful conditions of their country and their race. One of the 
maidens relates a dream in which there appeared to her a lady 
with a sword piercing her heart. At the sight of such a vision 
the maiden burst into tears but ' ' the lady spoke ' ' : — 

"My child, weep not for me, but for thy country weep; 
Her wound is deeper far than mine. Cry loud ! 
The cry of grief is prayer. 

The two maidens invite Patrick to go with them to their 
father's palace. Patrick consents and De Vere takes advantage 
of this occasion to describe many incidents. Very well indeed 
does he describe the beauty of Benigns' countenance in few 
words ; 

Her looks were sad 

And awe-struck; his, fulfilled with secret 

Joy, sent forth a gleam as when a morn-touched bay 

Though ambush shines of woodlands. 

At last, they reached the king's palace and the king and 
queen being pleased with their daughter's story, extend a hearty 
welcome to the guests. A royal banquet is prepared at which a 
blind bard sings to the blind king a song of vengence which 
arouses the feelings of the guests. 

*'And the great hall roared 
With wrath of those wild listeners. ' ' 

Then, after the wrath had died away, the queen bids her 
daughters to sing of man's sorrowful condition. The saint, deeply 
impressed, told the gathering how God had died for man, how 
He cares for his children and in Him alone is found peace and 
consolation. The king and queen along with their followers be- 
came converted and the two daughters whose wail had summoned 
Patrick, entered a convent and spend a life of peace and virtue.

UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 207 

preservation of tbe forests in Canaba. 




N Wednesday evening, January the 24th, Mr. Lawler, 
Secretary of the Forestry Association of Canada, gave 
a lecture in the Science Hall on the Preservation of 
Canadian Forests. The lecture was illustrated by 
lantern slides, and this fact, coupled with Mr. Lawler 's 
excellent ability as a lecturer, caused the two hours' dura- 
tion of the lecture, to pass all too quickly. I will endeavour 
to bring out the most important points of Canadian forestry, 
which Mr. Lawler specially emphasized. 

When the white man came to the New World, the whole of 
North America was covered by an immense virgin forest. Gigan- 
tic trees, worth hundreds of dollars were to be found by the mil- 
lions. But this state of things did not last long. During the 
nineteenth century, the lumberman's axe was busy, and the re- 
sult was that timber was so ruthlessly cut, that the people of to- 
day are suffering for lack of forests. The governments of both 
Canada and the United States, have taken up the problem of the 
Preservation of the Forests that still remain, and the Reforestra- 
tion of barren land, that once gave sustinence to beautiful trees. 
This work is as yet in its infancy, but for all that, millions of feet 
of lumber are being saved annually, which, of course, means in- 
creased assets to the two countries. 

In Canada, several colleges, and Toronto University have 
added a new course of studies to their already long list — that of 
Forest Engineers. The number of students is increasing yearly, 
and in time, a forest engineer will doubtless be as common as a 
civil engineer. 

The Preservation of the Forests is carried on in this way, 
when a lumberman goes into a forest to cut, he is accompanied 
by one or more forest engineers. These men mark certain trees 
which must not be cut — generally ten or twelve to the acre. These 
dozen tres are left standing as "seed- trees." In a few years 
young trees start to shoot up, in the place of the ones cut down, 
and the result is that in seventy or eighty years a new forest has 
grown up. Now if these few trees had not been preserved in the 
first place, the land on which the new forest now stands would 
doubtless remain barren and unfertile, because the soil, where 
timber trees grow is good for no other purpose than that of sup- 
plying nourishment to these trees. 



2o8 UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 

But the greatest enemy and destroyer of forests is the forest 
fire. In a few days, millions upon millions' worth of valuable 
timber are swept away, and a barren waste remains ; this was just 
what occured in the terrible fire in the Porcupine district last 
summer. In almost every case these forest fires could have been 
easily quenched in their infancy. It is with this in view that the 
Ontario government, and in fact nearly all the provincial govern- 
ments, appoint hundreds of forest rangers every spring and sum- 
mer, w^hose sole duty is to keep a strict lookout for fires until the 
winter snows fall. 

The work of Reforestration is interesting in the extreme. 
The Ontario government has established several nurseries. From 
these nurseries, hundreds of thousands of young trees, mostly 
white pine, are sent out yearly, free of charge, to farmers in every 
part of the province. With but little care, these trees flourish, 
and the result will be, that barren lands will have been covered 
with beautiful forests. 

Foresters are not working for their own good, but rather for 
the good of the country, to increase its natural wealth, and for 
the good of the generation to come. It takes a crop of wheat only 
a few months to grow, but a crop of trees takes from sixty to 
seventy years to become fit to cut. 

Now, as I have already said, the people of the United States 
and Canada are today suffering for lack of forests. In the Repub- 
lic to the south of us, timber is becoming scarce, but matters have 
not yet come to such a pass in Canada. However the people of 
both countries suffer in this wise. When forests covered the 
land, the moisture remained soaked in the soil, but when the trees 
were cut away, this moisture all rushed towards the rivers. The 
result is that every spring these rivCiS overflow their banks and 
great floods occur ; and during the rest of the warm weather, the 
same streams are almost dry. The annual Ohio floods in the Un- 
ited States, and the floods of the Ottawa and the Rideau, in Can- 
ada furnish good examples of this. 

Therefore it is quite plain that we should all take care of our 
forests. They are not only a great national asset, but also a bless- 
ing in disguise. It is the wish of every student of O. U., that the 
Forestry Association may prosper in its noble work.

St pntvich's> 2)a^ Banquet. 




VERY feast day of the year revives reminiscences in the 
minds of the Catholic world. Christmas and Easter re- 
call respectively the birth and resurrection of Christ, 
and while all Christian nations in every part of the 
universe honor and revere these feasts indiscriminately, they also 
hold dear feasts which commemorate their national Saint. 

No feast receives greater recognition than that of Saint Pat- 
rick which reproduces to every Irish Catholic the story of his 
nation's conversion to Christianity. To honor the founder of the 
Irish faith, the Irish students of the University held their twenty- 
fourth annual banquet in the recreation hall of the Arts' building 
which was appropriately decorated for the occasion. 

There were about one hundred and fifty students and 
guests. 

The guests were : The Very Rev. Rector Father Roy, O.M.I., 
His Honor Justice Anglin, Hon. Senator Costigan, Mr. J. J. 
McHugh, Dr. White, Dr. J. L. Chabot, M.P., Mr. Wm. Foran, Mr. 
Loui^ J. Kehoe, Mr. J. M. Clarke and Rev. Fathers Sherry, Fallon, 
Stanton, McGuire, S. and M. Murphy, and Healy. 

After those assembled had satisfied the wants of the inner man 
Mr. J. Q. Coughlan, the toastmaster, thus suggested a toast to St. 
Patrick : 

Gentlemen we have met today for a dual purpose, to acclaim 
with Irishmen who assemble in every part of this mundane sphere 
the national day of Ireland and to rejoice in the memory of her 
patronal saint — Patrick. 

Though dwelling in foreign climes Irishmen are today at 
home among the green glades and beautifBll hills of Erin where 
first was plucked the national enblem blessed by the anointed 
hand of Saint Patrick and today Irishmen find the noblest in- 
spiration in the memory of the greatest benefactor who ever trod 
Erin's soil, the Saint who thrilled to the core the hearts of their 
forefathers. 

I ask 70U gentlemen to join me in a toast to the "Day We 
Celebrate ' ' with which ia coupled the name of Mr. S. P. Quiity; 

Mr. S, P. Quiity responded to the toaat bs f oUowa : 



2IO UNIYERSITT OF OTTAWA REVIEW 

The Day We Celebrate. 

That great statesman and patriot, Daniel Webster, in pro- 
posing a toast to the memory of George Washington, made use of 
the following memorable words : "The recurrence of anniversaries 
or of periods of time naturally freshens the recollection and deep- 
ens the impression of events with which they are historically 
connected. No American can pass by the fields of Bunker Hill or 
MomnoBth or Camden as if they were ordinary spots on the 
earth's surface. Whoever visits them feels the sentiments of love 
of country kindling anew, as if the spirits which belonged to the 
transactions that have rendered those places distinguished, hov- 
ered round with power to move and excite all who, in future time 
may chance to approach them." Surely, with much greater rea- 
son does the recurring of St. Patrick's Day deepen the affection 
of Irishmen for their native land and add fresh fuel to the fire of 
their devotion for its patron saint. For, while Webster could see 
in Washington, the father of his country, "first in war, first in 
peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen," and could at 
the same time praise him as a Christian statesman, Irishmen can 
see in St. Patrick, not only a patriot, but the devout champion of 
their religion, which is infinitely more sublime in its end, than 
any mere temporal blessing that secures for us happiness or pros- 
perity here below. 

Every true man loves his country. And, with good reason. 
It is the place of his birth, the land of his fathers, the tender 
nurse of his youth, the chosen home of his mature age, the spot 
where he hopes to die. This is a general sentiment; this love of 
country is common to all classes and to all races of men. 

But Irishmen have a much stronger, a much more sacred rea- 
son to be attached to the Green Me. Beyond and above all nar- 
row national considerations, stands the glorious fact, that Ireland 
is the land of their faith and their religion, and that her persev- 
erance, against the most violent and persistent persecution, has 
been the crowning characteristic of her people, and has won for 
them the respect and admiration of the civilized world. 

Gentlemen, this is not only a patriotic holiday, a day on 
which we are to rejoice over the earthly glories of our country: 
but it is a religious holiday as well, a day on which we are to 
celebrate the successful entrance of the gospel into Ireland, and 
commemorate the victories of St. Patrick over paganism and un- 
belief. These are the thoughts which should fill every Irish heart 
on St. Patrick's day. Although it is many centuries since St. 



UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW an 

Patrick sanctified Erin with his presence and preaching yet, he 
still looks down from his high place in heaven upon the sons of 
the scattered Gael, expecting to find in them a conduct worthy of 
the Gospel that they have received from him. Let every Irish- 
man, therefore, act in a manner which becomes an Irishman and 
a Christian. If the day be celebrated in this manner, rest assured 
that St. Patrick will look down on the Irish race with a heavenly 
smile and will take a just pride in saying, ,' these are the young- 
soldiers to whose fathers I first preached the gospel and in whose 
native land I first planted the cross of Christ." 

The multitudes of the Irish people that have long since been 
driven from their native land, and are scattered through all 
countries will today pay a visit in spirit to that dear little isle of 
the ocean and deplore the cruelty and oppression which drove 
them hence. They will recount over and over again the hardships 
of their ancestors and they will bitterly lament the sad fate that 
obliged their forefathers to become exiles forever. I would strive 
in vain to express in adequate terms the indescribable sufferings 
of the Irish people. The bitterness of their sorrows shall never 
be fitly told by tongue or pen, shall never be known to mortals, 
until it be revealed in glory on God's great judgment day. Al- 
though her political history has been dimmed and her prosperity 
blighted, yet she holds a favor from heaven, which would be the 
pride of the most powerful nation on earth — this inestimable 
favor is the possession of the faith of St. Patrick. That faith was 
Ireland's only hope in persecution, her consolation in adversity, 
and it is still today her pride and her boast. 

As the offspring of Irish parents and as partakers in all the 
blessings and honors of the Irish race we sincerely hope and pray 
that God will give to the land of our fathers, in the happy days 
of future peace and worldly success, that same strong ardent at- 
tachment to the faith of St. Patrick, that she so nobly exhibited 
in the days of her persecution and suffering. 

The next toast was proposed in these words : 
That illustrious patriot, Daniel O'Connor, fittingly expressed 
the sentiments of his countrymen when he bequeathed his soul to 
God, his heart to Rome and his body to Ireland. While we have 
given tonight no indication of nearness to death, yet we can affirm 
with the great Liberator that after our love for God and before 
our affections for Ireland comes our devotion to the Holy See. To 
Pius X., the present occupant of the See of Peter, we shall now 
drink a toast to which Mr. J. J. Kennedy will respond. 

Mr. J. J. Kennedy responded to the toast to the Pope : 



212 UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 

Pius X. 

While we are celebrating to-day the feast of the glorious 
apostle of the Irish nation, let us transport our thoughts to the 
Vatican where St. Patrick and his devoted companions received 
authority and were sent forth to bring our forefathers under the 
saving and sanctifying influence of Christianity. 

Within the meerchaum colored walls of the Vatican, we shall 
behold a plain, feeble, venerable, and unpretending old man, 
Pius X., who guides the destinies of the Church as Vicar of Christ. 
When we gaze upon that holy face we behold in it an expression 
of love, pity, and charity ; his pathetic eyes have in them a look 
of Godlike piety and infinite patience; his individuality appeals 
to us as that of a man of extreme humility and virtue. To use 
words of a Protestant who visited the Vatican last year, "He 
surely is a Christly man." That Protestant visitor was inspired 
by the appearance of His Holiness ; he said when leaving the Vat- 
ican "I feel like a new and better man. I understand now as I 
never fully grasped before what the Israelites meant when they 
said the spirit of God had descended upon them." He had no 
faith in the Catholic creed, but he assisted at a papal audience 
out of pure curiosity, he attended a second one through venera- 
tion for that divinely gifted man, that seeminly supernatural per- 
sonage, and then he proceeded to make arrangements whereby he 
could be blessed by the Pope before leaving Rome. 

It is that simple and humble follower of the lowly Christ, 
who was cradled in a manger, that we Irish Catholics honor and 
turn towards to express our feelings of loyalty, devotion, grati- 
tude, and fidelity; it is that venerable peasant, that humble 
Venetian priest. Bishop, and Cardinal, now a prisoner in the Vati- 
can glancing with discerning eye upon his children in the uni- 
verse, to whom we express our devotedness and affection. 

Just one year ago yesterday the new church dedicated to St. 
Patrick in the eternal City was blessed. That happy Isle which 
Aubrey De Vere terms "the light of a darkling world," dedicated 
that church to serve as an endearing symbol of the unflinching 
love of its race for the Vicar of Christ. Pope Leo XIII. encour- 
aged and most generously contributed to the work, and Pius X. 
showed himseiLf equally sympathetic in assisting the priests who 
hftd charge of it. 

Irishmen take a deep interest in the furtherance of religiona

misedon and eonMcration, for beside* si Palriek's Chnrcli in

Rome they have established there other institutions representing 
their faith, learning, and piety. 

We read much of the civil independence of the Holy See, 
and it has been conjectured by many, among whom Archbishop 
Bourne, that the independence of the Holy Fathers can be ade- 
quately secured without detracting in any way from the essential 
unity of Italy. The necessity of that Civil Independence of the 
papacy has been admitted not only by Catholic but even by Pro- 
testant statesmen of the highest eminence. In Pius Tenth we 
conceive sufficient ability to determine what measures of inde- 
pendent sovereignty are essential for the free exercise of his 
spiritual rights. In 1901 the Duke of Norfolk said, "It is not for 
us to say what arrangement with the Italian government would 
be satisfactory to the Pope. That is a question which he alone 
can determine. We know that the interests of the church are safe 
in the hands of the Pope." The Pope does not wish for temporal 
dominion, he has no longing for territory; his thoughts are not of 
worldly possessions, but he desires such temporal power as will 
enable him to safeguard things spiritual. 

Gentlemen, we the progeny of Irish Catholic parents, and 
children of that reverend and democratic Patriarch in the Vati- 
can, rejoice to-day in our profession; we manifest our submission 
to Pius X. by honoring a great apostle of the church of which he 
is head. Within his domain may we ever find the haven of our 
desire, may we ever bear in mind those magnificent sentiments 
expressed by that eminent Irish poet, Aubrey De Vere, in the 
Confessions of St. Patrick : 

Lamp of the North ! 
My race, my realm, my great inheritance, 
To lesser nations leave inferior crowns ; 
^ Speak ye the thing that is ; be just, be kind ; 

Live ye God's Truth, and in its strength be free! 

After Mr. Kennedy responded to the toast to Pius X., Mr. J. 
J. Cusack rendered a vocal solo, with Mr. W. Egan as accompanist. 

Canada was the next number on the toast list, and Mr. J. Q. 
Coughlan in these apt words proposed a toast to our fair Do- 
minion : 

Tonight we proclaim the fact that we are Irish, but first of 
all the great majority present are Canadians, loyal sons of thi« 
child of the twentieth century, this land of destiny Canada. 

Impelled by cruelties unbearable and suffering many of them 



2 14 UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 

the pangs of hunger, caused by British mal-adrainistration and 
an unfortunate famine, the Irish emigrants found in Canada an 
asylum where they might escape their unhappy lot. To Canada 
then the land which welcomed our ancestors and which to-day 
numbers among her most prominent citizens expatriated Irish- 
men, I propose a toast to which is joined the name of Mr. J. A. 
Pluot. 

The "Land of the Maple Leaf" was lauded in the followingf 
terms : 

Toast to Canada. 

To be called upon to proclaim the glories of our young and 
fair Dominion is a pleasure to every Canadian. In this Land of 
the M pie Leaf we find in her comparatively short history, mem- 
ories Avhich gladden our hearts and which we can always recall 
with pride. 

But a few score years ago, uada was regarded by foreign- 
ers as a land of frosts and snow hose climate was adapted only 
for the American Indian and 1 northern Eskimo, but, to-day, 
the eyes of the entire civilized world are centered upon her, and 
there can be no doubt tliat, as one of Canada's greatest statesmen, 
the Right Honourable Sir Wilfrid Laurier, asserted some time 
ago, the twentieth century belongs to the Canadian Confeder- 
ation. No country is more richly endowed with natural resources 
than this native land of ours. Besides her inexhaustible mineral 
wealth and her vast virgin forests which any nation would be 
proud to possess, her boundless prairies which, but yesterday, 
were the home of the butfalo, produce to-day sufficient grain to 
satisfy the wants of many millions of people. 

In fact, so enormous is the quantity of wheat yielded by our 
western provinces that the transportation facilities are by no 
means adequate; yet there is. after all. at the present moment but 
a small fraction of our fertile prairies under cultivation. It is 
evident that one of the most difficult problems with which the 
Canadian government will have to deal in the near future will be 
that of providing means of transporting to the sea-board the pro- 
duct of the western wheat-fields. 

One transcontinental railroad has already been constructed. 
At the time it was built many regarded it as an undertaking of 
utter folly and prophesied that our trade would never justify the 
expenditures that it necessitated. To-day, another transcontin- 
ental railroad is under way of construction and we are told that, 
before its completion, a third wild have become a necessity. To 



UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA RBVIBW 215 

solve the question of the carriage of our western grain, the build- 
ing of the Georgian Bay Canal seems indespensible. We who 
live in this part of Canada have really but a faint idea of the rich 
inheritance given to us by Divine Providence in the more remote 
and newer portions of our country. 

As a result of the renown that our Domiliion has acquired 
abroad, every ship that enters a Canadian port brings with it its 
quota of immigrants that have been attracted hither by the far- 
famed wealth of the Land of the Maple Leaf and by the excel- 
lence of its government. They hope to find here conditions under 
which they may be enabled so to work as to gain a livelihood and 
enjoy peace and happiness. They shall not be disappointed. We 
welcome them to a country where there is an abundance of work 
and where honest toil will be rewarded with a generous recom- 
pense. We give them the guarantee of freedom and assure them 
the protection of laws more excellent than which are now enjoyed 
by any other country under the sun. 

If I were asked: What is the secret of Canada's prosperity? 
I would answer : first, of course, the limitless natural wealth. But 
that wealth would be of little value if w^e were not blessed with 
responsible government. Canadians know best how to govern Canada. 
They know her wants best, they are best acquainted with her re- 
sources and they are most deeply interested in her welfare. This, I 
believe, is the principal cause of Canada's success as well as the ex- 
planation of her attachment to the British Empire and to British 
institutions. I believe, likewise, that responsible government for Ire- 
land by Irishmen is absolutely indespensible for the prosperity of 
that country, and that it is also the only means of uniting Erin to 
the British Empire by a bond of affectionate loyalty. The day 
seems to have already dawned when the Emerald Isle will have 
her own parliament. Then we may rest assured will she be blessed 
with peace and success, and not until then can the British gov- 
ernment look for that unhesitating love and support from her 
Irish subjects that will make Ireland what Canada is to-day, a 
bulwark and not a source of weakness to the Empire. 

The toastmaster proposed the toast to the Irish party in the 
following terms: 

The one speck upon the sun of British constitutional liberty 
to-day is Ireland. For more than 300 years Ireland's political 
freedom has lain fettered in the chains of British oppression and 
in vain had incessant protests emanated from the Emerald Isle 
against this inhuman procedure until the influential Irish party 



ai6 UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 

sprang into existence. Since its inception by judicious labors 
the Irish Parliamentary party has eradicated many of the evils, 
social and political that militate against the prosperity of Ire- 
land. The rescue from thraldom of her long suffering sons and 
daughters has been singularly successful and to-day the road is 
clear for an advancing force against the fortress of misgovern- 
ment. 

As an expression of our endorsation of the noble efforts of 
these brave men, I propose a toast to the Irish Party to which 
Mr. A. G. McHugh will reply. 

Mr. McHugh commented upon the work of the Irish party 
as follows : 

The Irish Party. 

More heartily now than ever before do Irishmen respond to 
the toast of the Irish Party. Now, more than ever before, do Irish 
bosoms swell with pride when mention is made of their valiant 
and able representatives in the British House of Commons. For 
to the Irish Party we may point to-day and proudly say, ' ' There 
is the Irish David who has slain the British Goliath, the Veto of 
the Lords. ' ' 

I have remarked, in St. Patrick's Day speeches, how often 
that buoyant hope, so characteristic of the Irish race, displays 
itself. How many times, on occasions such a.s this, have Irishmen 
expressed the confidence that they would soon see the day when 
Ireland would have a just system of education and a national uni- 
versity, when Ireland would have a just system of land tenure, 
when Ireland would have Home Rule. Gentlemen, the fact that, 
with the exception of Home Rule, all these benefits have been 
obtained, and many others with them, demonstrates that there is 
great moral force behind strong, Irish hope. 

Now, indeed, when the passage of the Home Rule Bill is, 
apparently, only a matter of a short time, may not our buoyant 
Irish nature give expression to the hope that soon, yes, while this 
very day is bright in our memory. His Majesty the King will pre- 
side in person at the opening of an Irish Parliament in Dublin? 

And, gentlemen, the moral force that has wrought such a 
wonderful change in Irish affairs is centered in the Irish Party. 
It is that party which has given Ireland a national university, old 
age pensions, the great Land Act of 1909, ilicreased funds for 
teachers' salaries and for school buildings, and dozens of minor 
reforms. Finally, it is that party which has achieved one of the 



UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 217 

greatest bloodless revolutions in the interests of democracy, the 
passage of the Lords' Veto Bill. 

Three years ago the House of Lords was the most powerful 
institution in the United Kingdom, indeed, perhaps, in Europe. 
It had behind it all the power of feudalism and wealth ; its posi- 
tion seemed impregnable. It stood there a block in the path of 
*11 democratic reform. Three years ago those who attacked this 
powerful institution were ridiculed both in England and in Ire- 
land. John Redmond, in a speech in Wicklow, said, last fall, 
"Up to the other day the Irish Party were mocked and scoffed 
at and ridiculed because we said that we could carry the Veto 
Bill, and clear this obstacle from the path of Home Rule. We 
were told, indeed, by one prominent Irishman that we might as 
easily cast Galteemore into the sea as remove the Veto from the 
House of Lords. Well, we have come back to you to-day, and re 
are able to tell you that we have destro.yed that power. M nd 
yoia, 'we' have destroyed it. Aye, the Irish David has beew /he 
man who destroyed this Goliath, and to-day that block no 1*> ^er 
stands in our way. ' ' 

Had the Irish Party accomplished nothing more than this it 
would be worthy of all the praise it may receive and all the con- 
fidence placed in it. It gives no small measure of satisfaction to 
the Irish race throughout the world to know that it was Paddy 
from Cork who gently removed the monocle from the eye of the 
English Lord, took the coronet from his head, and made him drink 
the hemlock. 

The policy of the Irish Party is to obtain, by constitutional 
means, the greatest good for Ireland in so far as that good does 
not militate against the welfare of the Empire as a whole. This 
greatest good they believe to be Home Rule. Some there are who 
claim that the granting of Home Rule to Ireland will breed dis- 
loyalty right in the heart of the Empire. Canada was once gov- 
erned from Downing Street, and we all know the state of disaffec- 
tion that then existed in this country. Canada is now autonom- 
ous and deeply attached to the Motherland. The onlly way to 
make people loyal is to make them contented. This the Irish 
Party will do by obtaining Home Rule for Ireland. 

The statement has been widely made — and it is used as am 
argument against Home Rule — that under separate parliament in 
Dmblin the Catholic majority wonlld oppress their Protestant fel- 
low-countrymen. Gentlemen, there is not the slightest foundation 
for such a statement. We must not forget that, among the most 
illustrious of those who have engaged in the struggle for Ireland's 



2i8 UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 

legislative independence, we find the names of many whose re- 
ligion is not that of the majority. Emmett was not a Catholic, 
neither was Wolfe, nor Isaac Butt, nor Parnell. Neither was the 
late Edward Blake, that brilliant Canadian, who for many years 
gare his best services to the Irish Party. Nor are the members 
of that party, to-day, exclusively of the Catholic faith. Many of 
the most ardent advocates of Home Rule in Ireland belong to 
Protestant denominations. Lord Pirrie, who recently received Mr. 
Churchill at Belfast, and who presided at the great Home Rule 
demonstration in that city — a demonstration, that we must not 
forget, was a Protestant demonstration — Lord Pirrie is only one 
of a multitude of prominent and wealthy Irish Protestants who 
support the demands of the Irish party for Home Rule. 

No, gentlemen, Home Rule does not spell political inequality 
or religious persecution. I am sure that every Irish Catholic is 
willing to forget the past, and to work in harmony with his Pro- 
testant fellow-countryman for that prosperity of their common 
native land. Words could not better express the Irish Catholic's 
sentiments than those of the poet Frazer: 
i; 

"Come — pledge again thy heart anid hand 
One grasp that n'er shall sever; 
Our Watchword be — "Our Native Land," 
Our motto — "Love for ever." 

"And let the Orange lily be 
Thy badge, my patriot brother — 
The everlasting Green for me ; 
And we for one another. ' ' 

After Mr. McHugh's response to the toast to the Irish party, 
Mr. Louis J. Kehoe gave an interesting dissertation in the dialect 
of Mr. Dooley, which was highly appreciated by the assembly. After 
which the toastmaster thus proposed a toast to Alma Mater : 

Universities are necessary as abodes of learning and citadels of 
truth. Catholic universities are the realization of the Church's 
ideals in education. From their halls must come forth the de- 
fenders of her faith. They must house the profound scholars who 
will cope with a profane science that proclaims a perpetual conflict 
between the natural and the supernatural order. 

In mediaeval times Ireland was the brilliant star that in th« 
night of intellectual darkness shone down upon Europe with such 



UNTVERSITT OP OTTAWA REVIEW 219 

peerless lustre and beauty that she illumined the whole continent. 
We would indeed be recreant to Irish traditions were we unmindful 
to-night of our intellectual mother. I ask you then to drink to 
Alma Mater a toast with which is coupled the name of Mr. I. J. 
Rice, 

Mr. Rice made the following optimistic reply: 

Alma Mater. 

It is indeed a great pleasure as well as a great honor for a 
■tudent to be called upon to respond to the toast to an institution 
of learning, and particularly when that institution is his own Alma 
Mater. 

Education is, r.'id always has been, one of the mos' ootent in- 
fluences in deterDT ing the value of individuals as well as of na- 
tions, and in givi them whatever power they possess. Besides 
■toriiig the mind a l muh information that is useful and impart- 
ing r, science that must ike much for the material progress of 
humanity, true educiition ..^stows a liberal culture that must be ever 
regarded as one of man's most precious endowments. 

Whilst education has been held in high esteem among all 
peoples that have won distinction in the world's history, probably 
no race has been more devotedly and more persistently attached 
to it — as indeed they have been to all high ideals — than the 
«ons of St. Patrick. 

The legendary history of Ireland is replete with incidents bear- 
ing testimony of her deep love for the intellectual. 

When St. Patrick visited her shores he found a people among 
whom education was common, and who had already a national lit- 
erature of no mean value. 

Later Irishmen became famed throughout Europe for science. 
Ireland was really one great university to which flocked men of 
every nation, seeking an education that could not be obtained else- 
where. Rightly indeed did she merit during the sixth and seventh 
centuries the proud titles, "Light of a darkling world" and "Lamp 
of the North." 

Shortly after this period, however, learning was practically 
banished from Ireland, but it was banished only because the Irish 
clung with their characteristic tenacity to an ideal higher than edu- 
cation, or anything else that is merely temporal, namely the ideal 
of the true religion. 



220 UNIVERSITY OP OTTAWA REVIEW 

But the Irishman's love of learning was not destroyed by ages 
of intellectual darkness and oppression. Probably the greatest ec- 
clesiastical seat of learning in the world at present is iMaynooth, 
and certainly one of the most remarkable episcopates in Christen- 
dom for learning, as well as for sanctity, is the renowned body of 
Ireland's bishops. 

Since the organization of the Irish National Party, the yearn- 
ing of the Irish for higher education is symbolized in the great 
Catholic University that that party has won from the English gov- 
ernment. 

Hence as one of a race inspired with deep veneration for learn- 
ing, I feel a great pride in responding to the toast to the University 
of Ottawa. 

The gentleman who responded to this toast last year expressed 
the wish that the stately buildings of the University of Ottawa 
would soon rival in architectural beauty and expansion those of the 
Dominion government, and that her students would resemble in 
wisdom and gravity the members of the Canadian Senate. These 
sentiments are mine to-day. I hope it is no mere vision that I be- 
hold, with my mind's eye, and no vast plan, the realization of which 
will be long deferred ; but it appears to me, though I can lay no 
claim to the prophetic insight of the ancient Irish seer, that I be- 
hold in the not far distant future, a University of Ottawa with 
her Arts Buildings dotting Sandy Hill, her School of Medicine 
crowning Parliament Hill, and her perfectly equipped Halls of 
Science resting securely on the princely endowments of such finan- 
cial magnates as Jim Hill. In these days of the glorious future 
the student body will not only resemble the Canadian Senate; it 
will enact laws for the good government of this great Dominion. 

Gentlemen, the University of Ottawa has been the object of 
much loyalty and support from Irish Canadians. To her they look 
for great achievents in the future, and it is hardly necessary for me 
to state that they are eager to lend her whatever assistance they 
can to aid her in her full development. They anxiously look for- 
ward to the day when she will have all the Faculties of a University 
in operation, and will be enjoying a prosperity unsurpassed by any 
of her sister institutions. They trust that under the wise guidance 
of Providence, and with Heaven 's choicest blessings bestowed upon 
her, she may become a mighty force for good in Canada, and may 
furnish to future generations of Irish Canadians, and even to the 
sons of Irishmen from other parts of the world, that secular and 



UNIVBRSITT OF OTTAWA REVIEW aai 

religious training which has ever been so dear to our race and for 
which it has made the most generous sacrifices in the past. 

Mr. Coughlan introduced the next speaker as follows : 

Under the spell of heavenly memories humanity had never 
ceased to dream of liberty and to aspire to its possession. Now 
and then, here and there, liberty had for a moment caressed 
humanity 's brow but not until the Republic of the west was bom, 
not until the Star Spangled Banner was unfurled to the skies was 
liberty caught up in humanity's embrace and embodied in a great 
and abiding nation. Ireland's appeal for justice has ever rever- 
berated to the distant shores of liberty loving America and al- 
ways have the returning waves of the Atlantic borne back upon 
their white crests, a heartfelt message of sympathy from the Un- 
ited States. To Columbia a greater republic than has been, I 
ask you to honor a toast to which Mr. M. A. Gilligan will respond. 

Mr. M. A. Gilligan thus eulogized his native land. 

Columbia. 

I need not say to you, for you know, how very much I appre- 
ciate the honor which is mine to-day. To respond to the toast of 
one 's country is always an honor ; but especially is that true in a 
foreign land where one feels that his country is esteemed and 
loved. 

The wonderful growth of the United States is a matter of 
such common knowledge, that reference to it, even in the remot- 
est parts of the earth, is entirely superflous. However, there are a 
few things in connection with that growth that it is very appro- 
priate to mention on an occasion such as the present. Irishmen 
throughout the world to-day are celebrating the feast of their 
patron Saint; they are rejoicing over the fact that the prospects 
for Home Rule are brighter than ever before. I take the liberty 
of asserting that no other country has been so intimately asso- 
ciated with Ireland in her long struggle for justice as the United 
States, and that no other country has so much contributed to 
bring about the present very promising political condition in 
England. John Redmond, the leader of the Irish Party, has, fre- 
quently affirmed that the cause of Home Rule could never have 
been kept alive if it had not received the long continued assist- 
ance of the Irish in America. 

This is only as it should be. When the colonies were fighting 
for what all, at the present time, admit to have been their rights, 



322 UNIVBB3ITY OP OTTAWA BBTDTW 

none sympathised with them more heartily and none aided them 
more effectively than did the Irish, We find Celtic names affixed 
to the Declaration of Independence, and we know that thousands 
who bore similar names fought under the Father of American In- 
dependence and laid down their lives in the cause of the young 
Republic. 

Their valor has been rewarded, not only by sympathy dis- 
played towards Ireland but by generosity exhibited towards Am- 
erican citizens of Irish extraction. In many localities where Irish 
Americana are numerous, naturally they are well represented in 
the positions of public trust. But even in places where they are 
comparatively few, they have been generously honored by their 
fellow-citizens. In some places in the States you will find a sit«- 
ation similar to that discovered by a traveller recently in a Mexi- 
can town. The traveller happened to be delayed through a train 
wreck and he enquired during his stay about the different ele- 
ments of the population. He learned that there were seven thou- 
sand Mexicans, 4,000 Italians, 1,500 Yankees, and one Irishman 
who was Mayor of the town. 

It would be altogether improper, gentlemen, if, in speaking 
to the toast of Colombia on St. Patrick's day, one did not refer 
to the marvellous progress that Catholicity has made in that 
country. The recent appointment of two American Cardinals is 
a demonstration of the strength of American Catholicity and of 
the rapidly increasing influence of the American Church. And 
the receptions accorded them on their return to their respectivt 
cities were among the most remarkable demonstrations of popu- 
lar affection ever witnessed on this continent. Two millions of 
people thronged the street* of New York on the occasion of 
Cardinal Farley's recent return from Rome. Never before, says 
Burke Cochran, has a Prince of the Church, returning to his 
espiscopal see been greeted by smch a demonstration and more 
than this, never has a state, of which less than half the population 
was Catholic, by a unanimous vote of both legislative assemblies, 
expressed gratitude to the Pope for raising one of its citizens to 
the dignity of th© Senate of the universal church. Nobody will 
take offense, I am sure, if I say, particularly on St. Patrick's day, 
that Irish Americans and the Irish race as a whole, take a pride 
in the fact that Farley and 'Council, and the other ill«striouj 
American, Cardinal Gibbons, are sons of those to whom the great 
"apostle of Ireland" brought the light of faith. 

Whilst speaking of the Catholicity of my country I should 
like to briefly state a few further facts. The honor of having 



UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW «23 

built, in fifty years, more Catholic churches than any other city 
in the history of the world is held by Chicago. New York, Bos- 
ton, St. Louis, Chicago, Buffalo, and a number of other prominent 
American cities are centres of a Catholicity as practical and as in- 
fliaential as can be found in any other part of the world. In New 
York city on the feast day of the Holy Name last year 50,000 men 
walked in procession ; and in Philadelphia on the same day, there 
were 65,000 men in line. 

These are facts pleasing alike to Ireland and to the Catholics 
of America. A bond of deep affection has ever united us to Ire- 
land ; and we sincerely trust that time will strengthen that bond 
and will make it a source of power to those whom it unites. And 
now that Ireland seems ta be approacliing the dawn of full re- 
ligious and political liberty, there is but one sentiment in the 
hearts of Americans on that matter. It is a sentiment of rejoicing 
that the goail seems so near and of ardent hope that that liberty 
which has been fought for with such persevering courage may 
soon take up its abode on Irish soil and remain there mntil the 
crack of doom. 

After the applause to Mr. Gilligan's response had subsided, 
Mr. J. M. Clarke favored us with a vocal solo. 

The toast to Soggarth Aroon was proposed as foUows: 

We would be derelict to our duty were we unmindful of the 
heroic endeavors made by the Irish priesthood to sustain even 
under the most violent persecution the Catholic faith in the Irish 
nation. 

The Irish priest has ever exercised a talismanic influence over 
the ardent and sensitive race from which he sprung, and wherever 
the Irish emigrant has gone his devoted Soggarth has accompanied 
him to be as the Soggarth was at home his guide and protection. 
Wliether it be to the Land of the Midnight Sun or to the tropical 
jungle, whether to the crowded metropolis or to the arid desert the 
Irish priest has gone unhesitatingly to bear Christ's message. 

It is with much pleasure that I propose a toast to Soggarth 
Aroon, to which Rev. Fr. S. Murphy will respond. 

Soggarth Aroon. 

Rev. Stephen Muryhy, O.M.I. , replied in a short but appro- 
priate and pleasing address:

Our Guests. 

The toast to "Our Guests" was responded to by Justice Anglin, 
Senator Costigan, Dr. J. L. Chabot, Wm. Foran, Dr. White, and 
Rev. A. B. Roy, our Rector. Each in turn congratulated the 
speakers of the evening and the students in general for their mani- 
festation of reverence and affection for the apostle of the Irish 
nation. 

Too much credit cannot be given Rev. J. P. Fallon, O.M.I.,

one of the best ever held in Ottawa University.

ORDINATIONS. 



On Sunday, March 17, in the chapel of the Mother House, 
Water street. Rev. Eudore Theriault was raised to the dignity of 
the priesthood. The ceremony was performed by Ilis Grace Arch- 
bishop Gauthier, assisted by Rev. Fr. Poli and Brunet. The 
beautiful chapel was filled to overflowing with the parents, rela- 
tives and friends of the young priest. After the service the choir 
of the Rev. Sisters sang the Magnificat with splendid effect . 

In the Cathedral at 8 a.m. the following day, Fr. Theriault 
celebrated his first mass. He was assisted by Rev. Canon Cam- 
peau, P.P. The children's choir sang several appropriate hymns 
in pleasing manner. Prof. Tremblay presided at the organ. 
Among those present in the sanctuary were Mgr. Routhier, Canon 
Plantin, Frs. Poli, Esteve, Lalonde, Lapointe. Richard, Tibault, 
Normandin, and the Grand Seminary students. A touching fea- 
ture of the service was the fact that the two mass servers were 
Christian Brothers, and brothers of the young man. 

The Basilica was crowded with friends and relatives. Canon 
Campeau preached a splendid sermon on the dignity of the priest- 
hood.

THE UNIYERSITIES OF THE EMPIRE. 

CongreiB to he Held in London to Discuss Many Important 

Questions. 

A congress of all universities in the Empire is shortly to be 
held in London, Eng. The purpose is to discuss various matters 
affecting (1) universities in their relations to one another; and 
(2) universities in relation to students, graduates and the profes- 
sions. Under the first head come the following subjects : 

(1) Conditions of entrance to universities and the question of 
equivalence and mutual recognition of entrance tests to degree 
courses. 

(2) Interchange of university teachers. 

(3) Inter-university arrangements for post-graduate and re- 
search students. 

(4) Question of division of work among universities. 

(5) The establishment of a central University Bureau. 
Other matters to be taken up under the second head are : 

(1) the relation of universities to technical and professional 
education and to education for the Civil Service. 

(2) Provision of courses of study and examinations for other 
than degree students, including university extension and tutorial 
class work, and special courses, both of a general and technical 
character for students engaged in professional, commercial and 
industrial pursuits. 

(3) The representation of teachers and graduates on the gov- 
erning body of a university. 

(4) The position of women in universities. 

(5) Residential facilities, including colleges and hotels. 
There are thirty-three colonial universities and it is expected 

that nearly all will be represented at the congress. The McGill 
Daily gives the names of Lord Strathcona, Principal Peterson, 
and Prof. Cox as the representatives from McGill. Queen's will 
be represented by two of her ablest professors, Vice-Principal 
Watson and Dean Cappon, who were chosen at a recent meeting 
of the Senate. 

A preliminary conference of the delegates from Canadian 
universities is to be held in Montreal. The London Congress will 
meet in June.

HOME RULE. 

It is but natural that at the advent of another St. Patrick's 
Day, Irishmen the world over turn their thoughts to the land of 
their forefathers, that land which has struggled so long against most 
tremendous odds, giving to the cause of right versus might the life 's 
blood of her most illustrious sons. "When they remember O'Con- 
nell, Grattan, Emmett, Parnell, and the other great men down to 
the present leader of the Irish Parliamentary party, John E. Red- 
mond, whose very names are synonomous with the Home Rule move- 
ment, is it any wonder that all in whose veins there flows the blood 
of the true loyal Gael should, at the approach of the festival day 
of Ireland's Patron Saint, turn their thoughts to this great measure 
which will emancipate their brethren on the Green Isle, and restore 
to them the rights so ruthlessly ravished by the English aristocracy. 

Home Rule ia a question of long standing in English poUtics. 
It is a question which has had the loyal support of not only the 
cream of Irish statesmen and the great bulk of the Irish people far 



UNrVERSITT OF OTTAWA REVIEW J17 

and wide, but also of many fair-minded Englishmen. True the 
fight has been long and strenuous, waged with all the acumen in- 
epired by love and loyalty on the one part, and avarice and hatred 
on the other; but with principles of fair-play and justice opposed 
to oppression, it does not require a very profound logical reason- 
ing to anticipate where victory will finally rest. 

The outlook was never brighter than it is at present, and 
we have every reason to believe that before St. Patrick's Day, 1914, 
Irishman from pole to pole will not only be celebrating the feast 
of Ireland 's patron Saint, but also that of her legislative freedom. 



MUSICAL IRELAND. 

To-day music lovers have thrust upon them a useless mass of 
would-be music supplied by composers whose sole design is the ac- 
cumulation of the almighty dollar, by the dispensation of noisy 
discordant bars. That such composition should be classified as 
music denotes either a marked depreciation in our musical tastes 
or an absolute indifference as to the proper application of our 
most ordinary words. 

With what genuine joy does any person, whether he possess 
the keen musical appreciation of the true artist, or the instinctive 
love of the most common being, lend his ear to the soul-inspiring 
melodies, which in the days of her power r-echoed throughout the 
halls and bowers of the Emerald Isle. 

The hoary harpist, threading the strings of his beloved instru- 
ment, and singing the inspiring verses that are to-day familiar 
to the most remote regions of this globe, soared with his notes to 
regions ethereal. 

And during the years intervening from the twelfth century 
to the present day, the effacing finger of time has detracted nothing 
from the beauty of Erin's Celtic ballads. A striking tribute to the 
musical instinct of the Irish people is the fact that she alone is 
the one country that has established as her national emblem a 
musical instrument, — the grand old Irish harp!

UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 




We have frequently opined that many of the Exchange columns 
in College journals have apparently degenerated into so many 
mutual admiration departments used exclusively for the interchange 
of compliments. We have always welcomed alike, with gratitude, 
conscientious criticism and favorable comment, by competent indi- 
viduals, and it has ever been our policy to commend where com- 
mendation is due our fellow workers in the field of journalistic 
endeavor, and when possible to arouse our contemporaries from a 
lethargic literary mood, through the less pleasant agency of criti- 
cism. 

We have evidently incurred the displeasure of some of the 
literary lights who control the destinies of the Trinity University 
Review, as a recent criticism would indicate. Such a biased critical 
observation is, however, hardly worthy of passing notice, coming 
as it does from a journal of whose presence we would be scarcely 
cognizant were it not for a lurid cover, and a conspicuous absence 
of any literary effort worthy of attention. 

Our attention was commanded by several excellent contribu- 
tions in the College Spokesman. "Pars Vernalis" is indeed a 
cleverly composed piece of verse. The Realms of Rhyme, a depart- 
ment peculiar to this publication, is one which might profitably 
be initiated by other College periodicals. For February it is un- 
usually prolific in poems, which bespeak much talent at St. Joseph's 
College. 

The Hya-Yaka, published by the Dental students of Toronto 
University is always productive of an unusual number of clever 
witticisms. In this respect it possesses a unique distinction. Shak- 
in' Hands is a contribution which would have been considerably 
improved by a more careful application of the rules of prosody. 

The Mitre, always read by us with genuine pleasure, contains 
in the February number an article which, as a pre-fixed editorial 
note would imply, was somewhat hesitatingly published. The sub- 
ject, "Ethics of Flirting," treated in an indifferent and jocose 



UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW aif 

manner by its author, is decidedly more entertaining than instruc- 
tive. A more serious presentation of this subject might prove of 
incalculable benefit to the effervescent college youth and would 
make a most welcome sequel. 

"The Single Tax," the subject of a lengthy dissertation in The 
University Monthly, published by the University of New Bruns- 
wick, is an economical reform that has of late engrossed the minds 
of Canada's most profound thinkers and has occupied many col- 
umns of editorial space in the daily press. The writer makes a 
logical presentation of the trinity of arguments advanced by him 
in support of this questionable reform. He is evidently a pro- 
nounced "single-taxer," who failing to recognize the existence of 
any appreciable defect in the scheme, disposes of its opponents 
with an air of finality not altogether convincing. 

Many of our exchanges for February vied with one another 
in commemorating the Centenary of Dickens' birth, by publishing 
exclusive "Dickens" numbers. No greater honor, we think, could 
possibly be paid by our sister institutions of learning to the memory 
of the novelist whose prolific genius yielded such literary treasures 
as "Oliver Twist," "David Copperfield," Great Expectations," 
etcetera. The well written appreciations of his works and the 
clever delineations of his more famous characters afforded us gen- 
uine pleasure. The merits of Dickens' novels are well known and 
appreciated. But, we may ask ourselves, is their influence on so- 
ciety of such a character as to deserve the unlimited praise which 
some of our contemporaries would so generously bestow ? Deserving 
of especial mention was the Dickens number of The Abhey Stu- 
dent, published by the students of St. Benedict's College, Atchison, 
Kansas.

Hmono the fTDagasines- 

There is an interesting article on "Welfare Work in Germany" 
in a recent number of The Scientific American. German employers 
have found out that it pays to care for the working man. A man 
works better in good surroundings than in bad. Many German 
employers not only provide sanitary factories and pension funds, 
as stipulated by the Government, but they also see to it that their 
men are provided with good food at a low cost, and, in some cases, 
they build sanitary and attractive dwellings for their employees 
and their employees' families, renting these dwellings at a nominal 
charge. Political economy is an applied science in Germany, and 
the effects are gratifying. 

"The Romance of a Chap-Book" in The Rosary Magazine 
promiRf'S to be a very interesting serial. It is a tale of Elizabethan 
times bse(iuent to the suppre;- ion of the Catholic faith in England 
by A< of Parliament. A tiii .» of the mysticism and quaintness 
of thot^f days adds color to the plot. It may interest Catholics to 
read in The Rosary that the oldest American diocese of the Church 
was that of Greenland, which came into existence about the begin- 
ning of the twelfth century. 

America keeps up the good fight against Socialism. A recent 
number sets forth, very clearly, the peril to Christian marriage 
ideals contained in the principles of Socialism. America contains 
some interesting data relative to the state of the Catholic Church 
in the East Indies. The Catholics of the Indies now number over 
two and one-half millions, an increase of some three hundred thou- 
sands in the last decade. For spicy reading, we recommend the 
editorials of Exte7ision. 

The University Monthly, a publication of the Alumni Associa- 
tion of Toronto University, is on our table. It contains much solid 
reading, indeed. We were surprised to read that the variety of 
subjects in Arts curricula of Toronto University required an aver- 
age of about thirty hours of instruction per week. The student 
has little time left him for serious study. "A Sojourn in Rome," 
in the Monthly, is an excellent portrayal of the Rome of to-day. 
It is written with the enthusiasm of a "true lover of Rome" and 
informs us of the pleasure afforded the observant visitor to th« 
Eternal City. 

The Catholic University Bulletin contains much scholarly work. 
Each subject taken up is treated fully. "A Democratic King of 



UNITEBSnT OF OTTAWA REVIEW aji 

the Middle Ages" shows us that democracy is not such a modern 
thing after all, and that Louis IX of France had some ideas of 
government which are considered as recent discoveries by many 
to-day. ''St. Augustine" is a philosophical essay in the Bulletin^ 
setting forth the saint's Platonic way of thinking. "Intellectual- 
ism and "Pragmatism," in another number of the Bulletin, is also 
very profitable reading for the student. 

A very interesting series of articles dealing with the various 
branches and departments of the Canadian Civil Service is being 
published in The Civilian. The object of the series is to make the 
public better acquainted with the work of the service and to assist 
the progress of the different departments by making known their 
many activities and their difficulties. A recent number describes 
the functions of the Mines Branch of the Canadian Dept. of Mines. 
These functions comprise: the publication of mining and metal- 
lurgical statistics, the investigation of minin}. '"onditions, the 
preparation of maps, scientific investigation, and the collection of 
museum specimens. 

The Educational Review, from St. John, N.B., contains, in its 
February number, many interesting articles on Charles Dickens. 
His life, his humor, his love of children and of jolly living are 
among the points developed. "The Hill o' Dreams" in The Ave 
Maria brings out the beautiful piety of the Irish peasantry of to- 
day. "A Fool There Was," in the same magazine, exposes the 
folly of a worldly and fashionable wedding. 

Our Dumb Animals contains an article on "Love's Power Over 
Wild Animals." The writer states that love is stronger than 
physical or mental power combined with knowledge. He proves his 
statement by examples.

Through the Desert — (Benziger Bros., New York, Cincinnati, 
Chicago. Price, $1.35 net. By H. Sienkiewicz. 

Though the author of "Quo Vadis" here shows himself in a 
new vein, there remains the same power of diction and beauty of 
description which render his Roman masterpiece so brilliant. 

The principal characters in the author's new story are Nell 
Rawlinson, a lonely eight-year-old daughter of a director of the 
Suez Canal, and Stanislaus Tarkowski, a sturdy and gallant lad of 
fourteen years, son of a Suez Canal engineer. Their parents are 
friends, and the children are as brother and sister. The departure 
of Rawlinson and Tarkowski on business cause the children to be 
left in the hands of a governess. Stosch and Nell are kidnapped by 
agents of the ]\Iahdi, the wish of one of whose number has not been 
granted by Rawlinson. In the development of the plot, event fol- 
lows event in remarkable succession. Among these occurrences are 
Stasch's refusal to accept the Mahdi religion, his shooting of the 
camel-drivers, the escape and wanderings of the children over the 
desert, their meeting with a dying explorer, and finally their rescue 
and restoration to distracted parents. 

Throughout the narrative the author's motive is ever before 
us. Indeed it is a fitting background for so picturesque a story. 
The author's familiarity with the region is clearly evidenced in his 
description of the desert, its awesome mysteries, and its silent men- 
ace of danger and death. It is with unfeigned pleasure, then, that 
we declare this work to be an exceptionally interesting story for 
both old and young.

Too much importance cannot be attached to the maintenance 
of archives. Certainly, one of the important offices of government 
is to look after its records. By considering the character of a few 
of the government's papers, it is easy to imagine what might result 
from their destruction. Both from an administrative and a histori- 
cal point of view, the loss would be very great. Government papers 
include records of Land Patents, Geological surveys, Indian treaty 
provisions, etc. Assuredly there is need of well-equipped well 
looked after archives buildings. The author deplores the condition 
of archives in the United States. 

Two Moulders of British Policy — ^W. T. Stead. 

Two of the most conspicuous personages in public life to-day 
ar^^St. Hon. Lloyd George, Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Sir 
Edward Grey, Secretary of State for foreign affairs. The former 
seems to be pursuing a policy which aims at the betterment of the 
condition of the masses. Mention is made at length of Lloyd 
George's attitude in regard to the Insurance Bill. Grey is a quiet 
man, extremely so. Though cold and aloof, he is a true friend, 
loyal and true-hearted. He is more anxious to do than to make show 
in the doing of things. Above all, he wishes to go his own way, 
and to be allowed the use of his own methods. In his oratorical 
role in Parliament, Grey lacks magnetism and fire, but he is irre- 
sistible. Like Macaulay, he is listened to by crowded Houses. Like 
all other great men, Grey has his peculiarities, and should be the 
more respected for them. 

The Forum contains many excellent short articles, including 
"Pathology on Women's Work," by Anna Spencer, and ''Stub- 
born Farmers," by P. McArthur. 



VOCATION. 

Every man has his own vocation. There is one direction in 
which all space is open to him. He has faculties silently inviting 
him thither to endless exertion. He is like a ship in a river ; he 
runs against obstructions on every side but one ; on that side all 
obstruction is taken away, and he sweeps serenely over a deep- 
ening channel into an infinite sea.

College (13) Laval (1). 

By trouncing Laval 13 — 1 College won the Eastern Section 
of the Intercollegiate by the score of 22 — 11, and thus qualified 
to play McGill for the championship. 

The visitors evidently thought discretion the better part of 
valor, and accordingly they left their slashing, body-checking 
togs at home, and appeared here in a suit of such meek and 
humble supplication that they were subject to ridicule and 
laughter. The warriors who showed no mercy in Montreal, sacri- 
ficed many a good chance here rather than risk the consequence 
of an expected body-check. Without having behind them a howl- 
ing mob, who in time of stress could come to their aid, these seven 
heroes become limp with fear. 

After the opening minutes the game was a runaway. Laval 
was completely outclassed and seldom ventured past centre ; in 
fact after 15 minutes they started to shoot the disc from one end 
of the rink to ehe other. Their forwards were tightly bottled up, 
and the delicate checking of their defence was useless against 
the agressive onslaughts of the garnet and grey forwards, who 
displayed rare form. The passing and shooting of Laval was 
weird while that of Ottawa was excellent. The College defence 
had an easy time blocking the rare attacks of the black and white. 
Both O'Leary and Heffernan cantered through the opposing ranks 
for a tally. 

Chartrand was the pick of the line and his dashing play took 
well with the crowd, which numbered about 1,500. The game was 
very clean, not a penalty being meted out by Referee Alf Smith, 
who proved satisfactory to both sevens.

McGill (8)— College (3). 

On Feb. 27tli College lost the first of the home and home 
series with McOill by the above score. A crowd of probably 2,000 
thronged into the Arena, where they were welcomed by the now 
famous Rooters' Club. It might be remarked in passing that 
when the Montreal team stepped onto the ice, they received an 
ovation which rivalled that of the home team, but a deathly sil- 
ence was the welcome of the Ottawa team in Montreal. 

The red and white had looked for an easy victory and their 
dismay was apparent when they failed to tally in the first few 
minutes of play. Their confidence returned however when they 
scored after 9 minutes. Shortly after a pretty combination play 
made the score 2 — 0. But once more the frightened look appeared 
when Chartrand carried the puck in alone and eluded Warwick. 
Thus the score stood at half time. Play opened with a rush and 
Chartrand shook the nets again in five minutes. College had an 
excellent chance here to take the lead but Warwick proved in- 
vincible, stopping shot after shot with the greatest ease. At this 
stage Nagle took a cramp and was carried off while Poulin also 
dropped when Rankin was hurt. Then it was that condition told. 
College with only five men could not v^^ard off the attacks of Scott 
and Thompson, who shot on Brisbois from pretty else quarters. 
The play was whlly individual, each team playing three men back. 
College missed several excellent chances, and in a last desperate 
attempt, the whole team played out on the line. By this means 
they netted another but when McGill would break away they had 
a clear sheet of ice with only one man on the defence to pass. By 
breaking away in this manner they secured three more counts. 
Thus the game ended with the boys from the metropolis in the 
lead. 

Although McGill have a fast well-balanced team, yet without 
the services of Warwick they would have been swamped. He 
surely gave a rare exhibition of what a goaler should be. Some 
of his stops were almost miraculous. Rankin, the mountain of 
flesh, seldom ventured past center ice. Wilson played a flashy 
game, his name figuri*ng four times in the summary. Scott was 
the most effective man of the Montreal team. Chartrand and 
Ileffeman starred for College, though the whole team performed 
well until Nagle was forced to retire. Little dirty work was in- 
dulged in. owing to the capable way in which the game wa« 
handled by Marty Walsh.

McGill (17)— CoUege (2). 

The second game with McGill proved somewhat of a farce. 
The red and white scored almost at will although at intervals 
College would seem to revive and for a time, play would be close 
and exciting. The Montreal team showed a 507c improvement 
over their form in Ottawa, while the Capital team went complete- 
ly to pieces. 

The predominating feature of the game was the dirty play 
of the Montreal seven. They were prompted however a great deal 
by the over-enthusiastic supporters, who repeatedly implored 
them to "get" such a man. Everything went with the referee 
and some of the tricks pulled off by the champions will surely 
not make Intercollegiate hockey popular in the French city. 

Warwick again proved himself a wonder while Rankin dis- 
played much better form. The big boy is very popular with the 
crowd. The whole line worked to perfection and had their best 
shooting sticks with them. 

Calahan replaced Brisbois in goal but he could not keep the 
puck from dodging him. O'Leary was pretty well used up but 
played a good defence game. The line lagged in following back, 
but carried the puck well. With a little more heart the College 
team would have given a much better account of themselves. 

Inter-Mural League. 

The final game of the Inter-^Iural League was played be- 
tween Arts and Collegiate. Had Arts won this contest a tie 
would have resulted between Juniors and Collegiate. Fate how- 
ever decided otherwise and MHluihill's braves went down before 
the onsweep of Dick Sheehy's silver seven. The game was played 
on sticky ice. which was very trying on the tempers of the con- 
testants. Timely interference by the referee prevented several 
fistic encounters. After this game the champions were carried 
shoulder high from the ice. 

At Amprior. 

-Shortly before the Laval game the College first team jour- 
neyed to Amprior and defeated the home team 5 — 3, in what was 
tionsidered by the inhabitants as one of the f«ste°t g?.r3es of the 
season. After the struggle the teams renewed acquaintances over 
the festive board, which had been carefully prepared by the 
town's best known caterer. The trip all around was a most 
pleasant one. 



UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 237 

The Close of the Hockey Season. 

The College Hockey team finished the season with a some- 
what improved record over that of last year. They made a most 
creditable showing on their trip to Boston, and on their return 
they walked off with the championship of the eastern section of 
the Intercollegiate. They lost the saw-off by a good margin but 
this will be no detriment to their opening a new account in 1913 
and perhaps surprising their most ardent admirers. 

Only two games were played in the 'Varsity League, for it 
interfered somewhat with the first team's practice. But these 
games were won by Wildcats. 

The Inter-Mural League had a most successful year, interest 
being sustained till the very last game. After the smoke of the 
final contest had cleared away, Collegiate were declared cham- 
pions. We wish to extend our sincere congratulations to the new 
champions. 

Baseball. 

"Batter up" boys, because the professors are hinting at the 
awful things which will happen in June and the ground is almost 
dry, these two signs beilig the surest heralds of the baseball sea- 
son. 

College will again be in the City League, where she captured 
second place last spring. The O.A.A.C. team has hung out the 
distress signal, and thus given College the right of way to the 
championship. 

The last year's team wil'l practically be intact, so that new 
comers will hape to travel some to catch a berth. If however they 
deliver the goods, then past performances of the older players will 
count for nought and they will be replaced by the new blood. 
The fight for places will go merrily on until the last man ha« been 
called out or has won the game by a home run. 

The Rev. coach has such excellent material to work on as— 
Milot, Morrieeau, Killian, Quain— the boy wonder from Chelsea. 
Gilligan. Ileffeman, Egan, Sheehy, Robillard, O'Leary, Pat Lacey, 
Poulin, Bunty Higgins, Renaud and Jim Kennedy. 

McQill Again. 

After discussing in an egotistic and bombastic manner the 
wonderful record of the McGiU teams for the current year, the 



238 UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 

clever editor of the McGill Daily kindly reverts to his favorite 
topic, the abuse of what the Canadian public know and admit to 
be the gamest and the squarest aggregation of footballers in 
Canada. No proof of this is necessary. 

There is an irrepressible rumor that the Daily is not the offi- 
cial organ of the students but is controlled by a clique, to whom 
the editor is but a tool. If however it is the official organ then 
we respectfully submit that that organ would benefit by appoint- 
ing a censor of undoubted veracity and integrity, and one who 
would not sacrifice fairness and honor to cater to the tastes of 
part of the student body. 

The Daily hints at the honesty of the referee in the Queen 's- 
Ottawa game. Does the Daily appreciate the fact that the referee 
is a graduate of IMcGill and a former captain of their football 
team. Does the learned editor know that Dr. Quinn is one of the 
most respected of Ottawa citizens, and one who is wholly above 
the criticism of even a budding and butting editor. The Daily 
has the audacity to criticise this gentleman and yet they approve 
of such specimens of inefficiency as they sent here for the To- 
ronto-Ottawa game. One of these pretenders remarked that when 
he heard he had been appointed he shut himself in his room for 
three hours to study the rule book. Oh why didn't some one steal 
the key, because behind a locked door is undoubtedly the most 
appropriate place for him. His rule book was entitled "The 
Shell Game, or Heads Toronto wins and tails Ottawa looses. ' ' 

Again. Sportsmen that we claim to be we did not bring to 
the notice of the Union the decision of that other McGill pair who 
handled (and handed) the Toronto-College final. The papers 
wished to make an example of these "sports," and McGill may 
thank the U. of 0. for killing what might have proven itself an 
unhealthy advertisement of the fairness of the Red and White. 

So far as deliberate dirty work is concerned, few teams could 
equal the unenviable example of the McGill Hockey team in the 
play off with Ottawa. Without the least provocation they adopted 
mean and dirty tactics, which were vigorously applauded by their 
adherents. After that game one Ottawa boy had five stitches put 
in his head and another had two put over his eye. Yet McGill 
stands for all that is honorable in athletics. What a mockery! 
This caiUs for investigation and a new editor.

VISIT OF THE ARCHBISHOP. 

On Thursday, March 7, His Grace Archbishop Gauthier paid 
his second official visit to the University. 

At 9.30 a.m. in St. Joseph's Church solemn high mass was 
celebrated by Rev. Fr. Esteve, O.M.I., assisted by Rev. E. Theri- 
anlt and M. T. 'Neill. His Grace occupied the throne. Under 
the able leadership of Rev. Fr. Paquette, O.M.I., the University 
choir rendered the Gregorian mass with fine effect. The entire 
body of students was present, almost filling the spacious edifice. 

After the mass came the profession of faith and the reading of 
addresses in English and French by Messrs. G. McHugh and P. 
Cornellier. 

Following is a copy of the English address, etc. 

To His Grace Archbishop Gauthier, 

Apostolic Chancellor of the 

University of Ottawa. 

Your Grace, — 

If the visit of the Chief Pastor is ever a source of pleasure 
and benediction to every parish in the diocese, not less is the 
visit of the Apostolic Chancellor to his University hailed with 
gratitude and delight. For we realize that Your Grace comes 
among us as a father amidst his children, bringing not only words 
of kindness and encouragement, but the choicest of heavenly bless- 
ings. During the long and fruitful years of your rule in the Arch- 
diocese of Kingston, one of the chief objects of your endeavour 
was the all-important and most noble cause of Catholic education. 
Nor can we forget that even then Your Grace took a most lively 
interest in this institution, which occupies so special and pre- 
eminent a position in Ontario by reason of its dual University 
charter — Church and State. 

And now that its destinies are entrusted in so special a man- 
ner to your paternal wisdom, we feel that the University and its 
students form, in no small degree, the object of your prayerful 
sollicitude. 



240 UNrV^ERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 

It is, therefore, with particular joy and pride that we can, this 
year, point out to a notable increase in the student body. The 
United States, Quebec, and even the most distant Provinces of 
the Dominion, are here represented in considerable number, but 
above all, Ontario has so swelled our ranks as to constitute a record 
attendance, far beyond the capacity of our present accommoda- 
tions, and necessitating the opening of annexes in the immediate 
vicinity of the Arts Building. 

The Grand Seminary which comes under Your Grace's more 
immediate supervision, has likewise been favoured with many new 
recruits; and, besides being a diocesan institution, attracts subjects 
from other parts of Canada, owing to the soundness of its theologi- 
cal teaching, and the thoroughness of the ecclesiastical training 
which it affords. 

We take great pleasure in making known to Your Grace the 
extent of our improvements, because we are certain that above all 
others you will be exceedingly gratified to learn how constant is 
the progress which your University is making. We trust that you 
will continue to interest yourself in our behalf; that you will still 
use your influence to promote the good work to which you have 
already lent a helping hand, and while assuring you of our loyalty 
and love, we confidently hope that Almighty God may long spare 
you to revisit and receive filial welcome in this abode of science — 
to protect and watch over Alma Mater. 

The Students of the University op Ottawa. 

Replying in both languages Ilis Grace thanked the students 
sincerely for their expression of loyalty and attachment. lie as- 
sured them that he took a very deep and lively interest both in 
their welfare and the welfare of the institution. 

As priest. Archbishop and now as Chancellor he has ever had 
a warm regard for Ottawa University. He regretted that his 
visits were rather scarce, but he was always with them in spirit. 

He was especially pleased to learn of the increased number 
in the student ranks. The fame of the institution has gone far, 
and as a result each year sees many new faces from all parts in 
the college. Even the grand seminary can boast of an increase 
over previous years. 

His Grace then explained at some length the great necessity 
of work and prayer. "Labora et ora" should be the motto of every 
Btudent. There is nothing of any account accomplished without 



UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 24, 

effort and labor. Work is the great essential in the life of the 
student. Whether mediocre, clever or brilliant, every one must 
work. Parents as we'll as professors expect it. In the medical 
world the doctor who does not study, who fails to keep in touch 
with the latest discoveries in science, is a failure. In the legal 
profession, the law student must spend long years over his vol- 
umes, he must study assiduously or else he will not succeed. And 
the priest too must ever be a student. He is never finished in his 
theological studies. 

But religion and science go hand in hand. Thus prayer is the 
second requisite. Besides being students, all must be good, honest 
men. Prayer is the great means at our disposal. 

The Archbishop then said that he had a very important an- 
nouncement to make, one that would please the faculty, the 
students and all friends of the University. The Holy Father has 
deemed the Rev. Rector worthy to receive the honorary degree of 
doctor of divinity. Ever zealous of the welfare of the Univers- 
ity, the Pope, Pius X., has been pleased to confer that high honor 
on him. Fr. Hebert, secretary to the Archbishop, then read the 
official document. His Grace afterwards conferred the degree. 

Rev. Dr. Roy is the recipient of heartiest congratulations on 
all sides. 

WASHINGTON CLUB BANQUET. 

The American students of the University fittingly celebrated 
the birth day of Columbia's first president by holding their 
Eighth Annual Banquet at the Hotel Glenora on Thursday, Feb. 
22nd. 

The dining hall was most tastefully decorated with a profu- 
sion of American, Canadian and Irish flags. 

No more striking compliment could be rendered mine host 
Davidson than the evident gusto with which the fastidious col- 
lege epicures consumed the dainty edibles provided by him. 

The toastmaster Mr. J. Q. Coughlan expressed the regrets of 
the Washington Club, at the enforced absence, through illness of 
the Hon. President, Rev. Fr. Finnegan. The following toasts 
were proposed and responded to in a manner which bespoke con- 
siderable oratorical ability: "The Day we Celebrate," by J. A. 
Cusack; "The Holy Father," by Rev. Fr. Stanton; "Our Flag," 



242 UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 

by R. C. Lahaie: "The President Elect," by M. J. Killian; "Can- 
ada," by F. X. Burrows, and "Alma Mater," by M. A. Gilligan. 

The guest of honor was Very Rev. Fr. Roy, Rector of the 
University whose short speech was one of the most enjoyable of 
the evening. 

The Rev. Fathers present were Hammersley, Stanton, Tur- 
cotte and Senecal. 



On Wednesday evening, the 6th inst., the Senior students held 
their annual sleigh ride. A new course of procedure was inaugurat- 
ed this year. Instead of having a "feed" after the ride, we in- 
dulged in one before, this time. It was found to be a great asset 
in keeping warm. 

At seven-thirty seven large vans lined up along Wilbrod street, 
and at the signal given by trumpeter Coupal, each of the drivers 
was assigned a load of leather lungs. 

The evening was ideal. We went to Rockliflfe and returned 
about nine-thirty. Light refreshments were then served, and sing- 
ing and dancing were indulged in for the remander of the evening. 

On February 25th our friend, H. K., celebrated the eighteenth 
anniversary of his birth. In the evening an address very appro- 
priate for the occasion was delivered by Mr. Coulas, who eulogized 
at length upon the honor that had been conferred upon him iii 
being asked to express the good wishes and felicitations of the stu- 
dent body to one of its members. He also referred in very glowing 
terms to the Limestone City, the birthplace of our esteemed friend. 
In terminating, Mr. Coulas, on behalf of the student body and of 
himself, extended many happy returns of the day to Mr. R., and 
wished him a superabundance of health and an exuberance of 
wealth. 

Although quite taken by surprise. Mr. R. respondcMl i)i a few 
brief remarks quite in harmony with the occasion. 

A most successful two weeks' mission has just been concluded 
in St. Joseph's Church. It was preached by Rev. Fathers J. Stan- 
ton and W. Murray, of the Dominican Order, and was noteworthy 
for the eloquence and practical application of the semions. At 
each service, and particularly the evening ones, the spacious church 
was taxed beyond its capacity. The University students followed 
the men's missioii evening services and derived great profit there- 
from. 



CNIVEBSITT OF OTTAWA BEVIETW J43 

Junior department. 



The skating and hockey season has been over for three weeks 
past, at least as far as the College rinks were concerned. Owing 
to the mild, sunny weather during the first days of March, open- 
air rinks broke up earlier than usual. Nevertheless, the Junior 
Department had a busy, very little interrupted, and most success- 
ful year. The First Team had many games with outsiders, the 
inter-mural leagues had almost finished their respective schedules 
and the rinks were well patronized at all times either for hockey 
or for skating. 

The First Team lived up to the promise of the Rev. Coach 
and to the expectations of their supporters. They went through 
the season without a defeat. They outclassed all challengers (and 
they were legions) and wound up the season by decisively beating 
the Juniorists, the champions of the inter-mural league of the 
Senior Department. It is now too late to bring on better men. 
Much of the success of the team is due to the judicious choice 
of players by the experienced coach, and to the playing of the 
men in the position best suited to their natural style of play. The 
team that showed up so remarkably well during the season was 
taken from the following: Doran. Brennan, Doyle, Shields, Sauve, 
Fahey, Langlois and Gouin. 

Charlie Langlois' team won the championship of the Senior 
Inter-Mural League. Out of eight games pla.yed, they did not sus- 
tain a single defeat. The players were: O 'Grady, Hayden, Doyle, 
Langlois, MacCosham, Howard and Howard. In the Junior 
League MacDonald's team came out ahead. It was a close fight 
for supremacy. In carrying off the honors, he made use of the 
following men : Bergin, Belisle, Power, MacDonald, Terrence 
Robert, Piehe Patrie and Macintosh. With the Midgets, the 
championship was decided by a sudden-death, saw-off game be- 
tween Capt. P. A. Boucher's team and Capt. Tommie Hunt's, 
Captain Boucher's won. The champions: Boucher, Ivan Roy. 
Langlois, Bonhomme, Claude Olivier, Daoust, and Ribout (spare). 
F^ach winning team had a group picture taken and each player 
of the winning teams will receive, nicely mounted, the photo of 
his team — all at the expense of the Athletic Association. 

Bert Robert was not on a winning team but he had his picture 
taken just the same. 

R. M-r-hy does not know what to think of this country to the 



244 UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA REVIEW 

nortli. He hails from the Sunny South and it is his first spring 
in Ottawa. He is a baseball enthusiast and longs to be into the 
game. He had his team picked thi-ee weeks ago. He ordered a 
practice one Saturday afternoon but he had to call it off, owing to 
a snowfaU of four inches the night before. But he is not discour- 
aged. He may be yet seen going around with a glove hanging 
from his l)elt, a bat under his arm and a ball bulging out of his 
pocket — waiting for the snow to go. 

In billiards and pool the interminable schedule is lengthening 
out. 



A REQUEST. 

Give me but six-feet-three (one inch to spare) 
Of Irish ground, dig it anywhere ; 
And for the poor soul say an Irish prayer. 
Above the spot. 

Let it be hill where cloud and mountain meet, 
Or vale where grows the tufted meadow sweet, 
Or "borreen" trod by peasant's shoeless feet; 
It matters not. 

I loved them all — the vale, the hill. 
The moaning sea, the flagger-lilied rill, 
The yellow furze, the lake-shore lone and still, 
The wild bird's song. 

But more than hill or valley, bird or moor. 
More than the green fields of my River Suir, 
I loved those hapless ones — the Irish Poor — 
All my life long. 

Little I did for them in outward deed, 
And yet be unto them of praise the meed. 
For the stiff fight I waged 'gainst lust and greed ; 
T learnt it there. 

So give me Irish grave, 'mid Irish air. 
With Irish grass above it — anywhere ; 
And let some passing peasant give a prayer 
For the soul there. 

Sir W. Butler.
