A TEMPERANCE DEMONSTRATION. On Monday the members of the Catholic Total Ah- j stinence League of the Cross made their annual Whit- < Monday demonstration in Hyde Park, in spite of the i proverbial teetotalers' weather (remarks The Tima). < Representatives of some eight or nine metropolitan « branches of the League, with bands and banners, assembled on the Thames Embankment about noon and formed in line along the roadway eastward from the bridge of the Charing cross Railway. Some of the large standards displayed between two poles, besides the name of the branch to which each belonged, the figures of patron saints, with re- ligious phrases, while one—that of St. Mary B and St. Michael's—was embellished with a full-length portrait of Cardinal Manning, who founded the branch in May, 1874. On others of green the Irish harp was painted with the motto, "Rod save Ireland. The children of St. George's Branch carried bannerets bearing such inscriptions as Prevention is better than cure," Come and join the Cold. stream Guards, Pledged to resist our country's greatest foe," The drink trade increases taxation and fosters crime. The men of the several branches were distinguished by wearing caps and sashes of green embroidered with gold. About two o'clock the procession started under a steady fall of rain, which continued without intermission during the march to the park and throughout the pro- ceedings there. The meeting place was under a group of elm trees, half-way across the Park, which the procession gained about three o'clock, and half-an- hour later Cardinal Manning arrived. His Eminence, who was greeted with much cheering, began his address by congratulating those present on the courage they had shown amid such dispiriting circumstances in making this demonstration of their devotion to the cause they all had at heart. He was glad to know that the League of the Cross had prospered during the last year. There were now twenty- three branches, and the number of members had increased. He was especially happy to find that the children of their schools took so heartily to the work of the league. In St. Anne's School, Spicer-street, he had seen about 800 children, of whom nearly all had taken the pledge. As they ought not to be out long in such weather, he would at once propose a resolution on which the meeting would be asked to vote. It was in the following terms That this meeting Is of opinion that a legal power of re- straining the Issue or renewal of licences should be placed to the hands of the persons most deeply interested and effected -namely. the Inhabitants themseives in every locality, who are entitled to protection from the injurious consequenoes of the present system by some efficient measure of local option." The Cardinal claimed for the poor man by right of law that power which the rich man had by right of property-the power to say that he would not have a publichouse next door to him when he thought that it might prove an annoyance and an injury to himself a d family. He would ask them gathered there in hundreds—he thought he might say in thousands-to resolve that when this question came before lrarlia- ment again they would use every constitutional means in their power to secure the passing of some satisfac- tory measure of local option. The resolution, on a show of hands, was declared to be carried unanimously, and the Rev. J. Brady, the Rev. W. J. Murnane, and Mr. T. Campbell having addressed the league, the benediction was pronounced by Cardinal Manning, and the prooeedings ended.
