" When I considered all the steps and circum- stances, a worldly engine put in motion by the breath of prayer, the iron gate opening of its own accord, I could not but acknow- ledge the divine call, nor hesitate to accept it. I have accordingly written my answer, ac- cepting the councils invitation. How to manage with the poor Moulin people, is the present difficulty. I took a number of them into my room last night, after worship, read my letters, and conversed with them. They were indeed sorely grieved, yet they did not deny the call being of God, and nothing but their personal attachment to me hindered them from fully acquiescing in it. We have the example and the success of the D--------- people, to encourage us to be instant in prayer, that the Lord would send a faithful pastor to >Ioulin, who may feed them with strong o

Her timid, aristocratic native shrank from him, and I think she was half afraid of him. He did not overlook any opportunities to make her life miser- able, and was always playing some joke on her. He would lurch around the halls, pretending to be intoxi- cated, and would throw her into a fit about six times a day. He would bum the light in his bedroom all night, and started her figuring up her expense account with a troubled, anxious face. Pretty soon he took to smok- ing cigars in bed. She never slept after this discovery, but every night would lie awake, with her clothes handy on a chair, expecting the house to be burned down any minute, and ready to skip out at the first alarm; and she became so pale, and thin, and wasted, and troubled that it would have melted a pirates heart to see her. She crept to my room one day, the mere shadow of her former self. She no longer leaned over backward, as she usually did, because of being so straight and dignified, but was badly bent. I was shocked. Senator, she said, if you dont ask that friend of yours to leave I shall have to give up my lodging- house, and God knows what will become of me then. He smokes …

250 CHARLES STEWART PARNELL In spite of all attempts to keep the platform clear, there was a gigantic crowd at Kingsbridge Station to see Charley off to Cork, whither he was bound to rally his own constituents. He then went on to Kilkenny, where his terrible alteration in health was soon the subject of alarmed discus- sion among his supporters. He was able, how- ever, both there and at Cork, to deliver a series of vigorous telling speeches, and to get his organiza- tion into full swing. | The Power of the Church. Although he fought with incredible energy to the very end of the contest, Charley realized, long before the figures were announced, that he would lose Kilkenny. The reason was that the priests as a body were against him, and he then, as ever before, appreciated the power of the Catholic Church in Ireland, especially when now, for the first time, he came into open conflict with it. Of course, it was one thing for politicians to continue to regard him as Chief of his party, and to regard moral considerations as being entirely outside their scope of judgment. If the entire Irish party had done so, no one could have been very much surprised. Indeed, they would have been com- mended generally, both for their loyalty towards …

Author Notes

Oscar Winfred Stewart (1893-1915)

The 20 April 1925 Wilmington News-Dispatch, in reporting on the funerals of Charles W. Stewart and William Elmer Stewart, included the following:

Just ten years ago The Dispatch printed the following story:

"Many friends of Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Stewart, 118 Meares street, will tenderly sympathize with them in the death of their son, Oscar W. Stewart, which occurred April 15 at the emergency hospital at the Panama-Pacific exposition grounds. His death was a result of injuries received on April 14. No particulars as to the way Mr. Stewart was injured have yet been received. He was 21 years old on November 18, last. He was a member of 158th Company, Coast Artillery and was stationed at Fort Winfield Scott, Cal., and has been in the service since September 1913.

"The remains will be interred in the National cemetery here. Mr. Stewart is survived by his father, mother, three brothers, and two sisters."

It was in another newspaper report that a Ferris wheel accident was mentioned as contributing to the death of Oscar Winfred Stewart. However, subsequent research has revealed that there was no Ferris wheel at the 1915 San Francisco World's Fair. There was something called the Aeroscope that took people up in one big car and did a sort of circular motion. However, whether the Aeroscope was involved in the death of Oscar W. Stewart is unknown. It is ironic, however, to consider that Charles Willis (Yank) Stewart while at Alcatraz Prison could, if he ever had a view, see the site of the 1915 San Francisco World's Fair (which was on the waterfront) and where he had lost a brother in 1915.
