AUSTRALIAN PRELATE HERE.
The Rev. T. Haley is En Route to Father's Home in Ireland.
With a brogue so rich that his conversation could barely be understood, the Rev. T. Haley of Victoria, Australia, was in Kansas City yesterday, en route form that island continent to his father's home in Killarney, Ireland. Kansas City is not on the route of the usual line of travel from Australia to Ireland, the Rev. Haley admitted last night at the Hotel Baltimore, but it was preferable on this occasion because of the general conflict that has torn up most of Europe.
Of recent events in Ireland, the Rev. Mr. Haley preferred not to talk, although it was evident that he was torn between conflicting emotions of loyalty to Australia and his father's country. Australia, he declared, was mustering in men rapidly and sending them to Europe to aid England.
