It Is from these documents nnd their
revelations of the Inner workings of the
A. O. II. and Its members that Father
McDermott IntlmateB he will enlighten the
publto further upon his causes for condemn
ing the A. O. II. It was on account of his
possession of this knowledge, obtained In
many Instances at first hand from members
themselves that made Father McDermott
so obnoxious to the "Molllos" of the coal
regions that his transfer to a remoto
pastorate was effected soon after the execu
tion of the ringleaders.
The disclosures obtained apart from the
confessional. It Is held, are not within the
control of the Church uuthorllles. should
Father MoDermott choose to make them
publlo, and this he hints he Is likely to do If
he deems It warranted by the subsequent
cuurto of events.
In the meantime, tho parishioners of St
Mary's Church have not recovered from
their astonishment at the resignation of their
rector after 31 years of labor among them.
"I have no Intention of either quitting
the priesthood or the Catholic Church, but
I will not withdraw my resignation and I
will let the whole truth be known. I will
spare no one. I cannot. I feel It Is my
duty to protect the Catholic youth," thq
priest said at Mount Airy. "For many
years 1 nave Deen oppoawi iu mo aiii-icui
Order of Hibernians, and my decision to
Teslgn from the church was made only after
Jt became apparent that the Pottsvlllo con
vention Is to be opened with u mass."
Father McDermott tins protested against
the use of the mass In opening the con
vention "when It Is well known It Is not
piety, but a, desire to Inveigle Cathollo
youth Into Its ranks that leads the Ancient
Order of Hibernians to make use of the
Father McDermott's resignation was sent
to Archbishop Prendergast last Monday,
and ha does not yet know whether It has
been accepted. The resignation caused a
reuratlon among the Catholic clergy, as It
Is rare. Indeed, that a priest resigns his
charge under such circumstances.
Father McDermott has long had a repu
tation for Independence. He has been called
the "stormy petrel" of the Archdiocese, nnd
a. prominent official at the Cathedral ex
pressed the views of many of the Catholic
clergy yesterday when he said, "One Is
hardly surprised at anything Father Mc
In his drtetmlnatton to prevent the church
from giving recognition to the Ancient Order
of Hibernians at Its services. Father Mc
Dermott has prepared a statement contain
ing a series of charges against that organi
sation, some of which aro said to be of a
sensational nature, The statement, which
covers some M foolscap pages, was sent
to Archbishop Prendergast on July 31,
At the request of friends, he prepared a
memorial to the Third Plenary Council at
IJalttmore, In 1884, asking the Church to
put its ban upon the A, O, II. The me
morial waa suppressed after It had been
received by the Cathollo authorities.
Father McDermott Is opposed to having
the Ancient Order of Hibernians meet in
Pottsvllte, the former scene of the Molly
Uagulres' reign of terror, and erect a court
ot honor In the streets near the Jail where
some of the "Mollies" went to the scaffold.
He deeply regrets that the Rev. Francis
McGovern, rector ot St. Patrick's Church,
PottsYllle, has consented to have solemn
falgh mass for the A. O. II. In that church.
"It looks like a brazen piece of Im
pertinence for the A. O. H. to hold their
convention in PottsvtUe,' said Father Mc
Dermott last evening. "I am grieved that
father McOovern has consented to have
them at St- Patrick Church. I have no
personal feeling against Archbishop Pren
dergast or against any member of the A.
O, H.. but I am unalterably opposed to hav

to recruit Catholic boys ot 17 and 18 Into

A LL the pathos, humor and happiness of the
- days "before the War" find melodious,
true expression in Columbia Records
of plantation airs.
These records present the folk-songs of the South
with a sympathy of interpretation that brings out all
the heart-appeal of the simple old melodies:
OLD FOLKS AT HOME. Taylor Trio;
Cello, Violin and Piano.
MY OLD KENTUCKY HOME. Taylor Trio;
Cello, Violin and Piano.
DIXIE. Columbia Band.
EVENING CHIMES IN THE MOUNTAINS.
Columbia Band, with bell solo.
TENTING TONIGHT ON THE OLD CAMP
GROUND. Columbia Stellar Quartet.
VACANT CHAIR, THE.
Columbia Stellar Quartet.
The human quality that makes these
plantation airs so charming is one of the
most delightful thing3 about Columbia
Records. And you'll find it not only in
vocal records, but in instrumental records
by great concert-artists, and in trios and
other ensemble records.
