Important Step Toward Solution of
the Philippine Troubles Taken
bu Villanova College.
TO LEAVE FOR MANILA
Both Clergymen Chos.en Are Dis
tinguished nnd Able Members of
the Order In a Short Time It Is
Believed Several Others Will Be
Sent Over The Announcement
Made During Celebration of the
Feast of St. Thomas.
By Exclusive Wire from The Asoela5ed Press.
Philadelphia. Pa., Sept. 18. An Im
portant step toward the solution of the
troubles In the Philippine Islands,
caused by the presence of the Spanish
friars there, Was taken today ut Villa
nova college, when the Most Rev.
Thomas Rodrlquez, O. S. A., of Rome,
prior general of the Augustlnlan order
throughout the world, announced that
Rev. Daniel J. O. O'Mahonoy, of And
over, Mass., and Rev. J. E. McErlalne,
of Villanova, had been ordered to the
Philippines as pioneers in the move
ment of American priests to those isl
ands to succeed the Spaniards. The
two priests will leave for Manila within
the next two weeks, nnd will be fol
lowed In a short time, it is believed, by
several other American Augustlnlans.
Both clergymen chosen are distinguish
ed and able members of the order. They
were selected from among about a
dozen volunteers who offered their serv
ices to the prior general In case ho
needed American Augustlnlans for the
Philippines. Many of the Spanish friars
in the Philippines belong to the order.
"We go there to carry out the pro
gramme which has been decided on by
the prior general," said Father
O'Mahonoy this afternoon. "We are fully
cognizant of the great work done by
the friars of ours and other orders In
the Philippines and go to them ns
brothers working in the same cause.
We have no Idea how long ive will re
main or how many American Augustln
lans will be sent to the Islands."
The announcement was made during
the celebration of the feast of St.
Thomas, patron of Villanova, which
was observed with impressive exercises.
At S a. in., high mass wus cele
brated by Pior-General Rodriguez, and
a I 11 o'clock a reception was tendcrerl-J'
to the distinguished Augustinlan, who
has been In this country a little more
than a month. The American provin
cial. Rev. Martin .T. Geragty, delivered
an address of welcome to the prior
general on behalf of the American
province, which takes in all the com
munities of tho order in the United
States. An address was also made by
the Rev. L. A. Dclury, president of
Villanova. All the addresses were de
livered in Latin.
The prior-general, in replying to tho
welcome, among other things, said:
"Throughout all time, tho govern
ments of the world have appealed to
tho sovereign pontiff as a peacemaker.
The American government has ap
pealed to him, and rightly so, to set
tle tho troubles In the Philippines.
"Wo liavo no fear of the outcome.
Prejudice and cant must be put aside
and the facts only considered. God
fearing men will do right and justice.
"Unfortunately, nearly all the state
ments furnished from abroad to tho
American press on the friar question
arc filled with calumny and mendacity
In regard to tho friars In tho Islands.
Wc do not blame the Philippine com
mission for any of the opinions that
body holds, for we know the Informa
tion furnished to it was mainly ob
tained from our enemies, men who
have stopped at nothing to vlllify and
malign our brothers,
"I speak not as one who does not
know tho conditions in tho Philippines,
I speak with n personal knowledge of
the priests and the people."
The Rev. P. I. O'Hare, of Brooklyn,
N, Y., secular priest, paid a tribute
to thn Augustlnlan order.
A banquet was held In tho afternoon
and tonight the students tendered the
prior-general n reception.
