Santa Clara the path of learning is not paved with spikes. Two countrymen of yours, the Padre adds, are on our staff; Professor Dance of Oxford, and Professor Leonard of Cork. Dance professes English literature. Leonard, an Irish genius, professes mathematics, metallurgy, assaying, and other physical sciences. How many Fathers have you in the college? Forty Jesuits, and nineteen lay brothers; fiftynine in all. But we have branches of the company in other towns; one branch at San Jose, with five Jesuits, and a second branch at San Francisco, where Father Massenata superintends a school. The Fathers keep their college gay and winsome, catching their Hybrid pupils through the sense of sight. It is their wisdom to be popular. A Jesuit planted the first vine in Santa Clara, a Jesuit pressed the first grapes in California. Mission grapes bring high prices in the market, and Mission wine is still a favourite of the table. Jesuits are pleased to hear the merit of these

An upper class now reigns in Monterey county, over which the priests and Jesuits have no control. Young ladies look for English mates, aware that English husbands will draw them to another Church. In other counties, Rome is weaker than she is in Monterey. Stockton and Sacramento are as strictly Evangelical as Pittsburg and Cincinnati. Oakland and San Francisco rival Brooklyn and New York. Even Santa Clara has ceased to be a Catholic town. Where Rome was lately all in all, she shows to-day no more than a broken sceptre and a scattered power. At most the Roman Church retains a foothold in a section of the country here and there. These sections lie exposed, and she is still without a native army to repel attack. Her posts are garrisoned by foreign troops. Here is her weakness and her misery. Who drove her Orders into exile

im her enemies, loving liberty and justice more than they fear priestcraft. How, with such poor allies, are the Jesuits to confront such strong adversaries? They have everything to create and to apply. These hybrids cannot furnish them a decent priest, much less a learned professor. As a rule the priests are foreigners. The bishop of Monterey is a Gaul, the cure is a Swiss. At Santa Clara the professional chairs are held by English, Irish, French, and Italian scholars. Not a single Mexican holds a chair. It is a great misfortune for the fathers, since no people on earth are so touchy on the point of foreign rule as those of Spain. But Padre Varsi cannot help this state of things. A foreigner himself, he sees that foreigners must supply the lack of native learning, loyalty, and faith. The Church has much to do and much to undo. She has to train her officers to command, to teach her rank and file to obey. In front of her stands an enemy not only armed with physical powe

Her priest forbade such wickedness, and Spence, in order to secure his prize, was forced to ask admission to the Catholic fold. But things are changed. Though Catholic feeling still runs high, and some old ladies use big words, nobody dreams of asking an American suitor to renounce his creed in order to obtain a woman's hand.

ptains must be learned men. So far the Jesuit fathers see their way. In taking such a line, how far are they returning to the ground on which the brethren of St. Francis staked and lost their cause? We pace the Franciscan garden, the old fountain still playing, the old olive trees bearing fruit. This garden is an idyl. Noteur Fathers taught the native how to till his soil and gather in his grain. At Santa Clara we have other things to do. The native race, for whom the brethren of St. Francis toiled, is all but gone. Our conflict lies in other fields. Varsi is right. His conflict lies in other fields than that in which Fray Tomas the Franciscan decessor, Padre Giovanni Nobili, came to Santa Clara shortly after the gates were opened to our exiles. There was some confusion in the place. The brethren of St. Francis, having just come back, were trying to oust the settlers from their farm and c.lttle-runs.
