Till new proclamation of interdict

moro especially Intended a a political
i)ianlfeto to the clergy and Catholic
of Italy, Spam, Portugal, llelglum and
lirazll, Inciting them to treimonablc

coiiNlllutlonal govenitiieiit of thoMc

of lara, and all Hi" Jeult and Ultra
montane clergy, to renew tho war a
few year ago waged by them agalnnt
Frco Mnonry, againnt the emperor

toward one excommunicated, repro

Thu it menace tho publlo peaco In
thono eountrlM, Inciting revolt and In
Kiirreetlon and lowannlnatlon, and
make tho Jord'tf prayer the patent of
an Ifxpilnltor, and the ermon on tho

Already the general of tho Jenult
and the chief Juipilnllor of tho holy nf
Jleo have promulgated their order to
their troop and official, commanding
them to ti their utniont exertion to
carry Into effect Hut mandate of tho
encyclical letter. In Hpain and Port
ugal ecrct aiiH-Miiotiio annoclalloii
aro already being organized tinder
theno order! and like organization
may bo looked for In the United Htate,
with roort to every other mean of
warfare again! thn great principle
which Free Manotiry represent, Hint
can bo prudently and afely employed.
It i aUo it political maulento, and
more, for our neighboring republin of
Mexico and tfiono of central and ou(b
America, There am grand lodge and
mipreuio council of Manon In mont of
thenii ami In fill, Monry I free to
exlnt and work undisturbed, and I
powerful and Influential. In Mexico,
thn ex-preldent, now president-elect
of tho republic, and the actual prenl
ihinf, rfro thirty-third degree, member
of tho mipremo council of Mexico
prettied by il, a the President Coiuon
foil w a Ihiily lhlid degree, gitin-l
coniinrtiider of th'it upl emu CMiiieil,
and a the PieMdeiit. Juire w a
M:loii, It I well kliowii Hull Hie
p iptilutloii at large of the republic I
iiiiedueiited and pronxly Ignorant, and
dnvMdy mibni'i vleiit to the prlexlhood;
nnd that It detect and lnite Prote.
Iiiiiln a heretic., damned by the ana
thema of the church and unlit to live.
The prieHtlmod in Mexico ha alway
lieen the iiiicoiupromlHlng and wily
enemy of every patriotic! president, of
republican government, of Free Ma
nonry, of tho principle on which con
Hlllutlonal government are founded,
and of all the men by whono niil.llme
effort and acrlllce Mexico wa made
and ha been maliilaniiid a republic.
It I aim well known that, In nonn
ijuenco ot tho friendly relation be
tween our two republic, and the ex
tension of railroad in Mexico, built by
tho capital of our citizen, there now
are in that, country a great number of
citizen of the United .Stale, many of
whom have purchaned mine and land
and are working and cultivating them.
The letter "Iliinianiim (ieiiu" I o
framed and worded a to be calculated,
and uiUHt therefore be taken to bo art
fully and deliberately Intended, to In
cite the prlcHthood In Mexico to re
newed zeal agalnnt liereny and heretic,
end more pemintcnt and eonlliiuou
and better organized and more auda
clou effort to dentroy Fiee Manonry
there and overturn republlcanlnm. If
citizen of the United Ktalo, peaceably
engaged there In ueful avocation,
nhoiild bo annannlnaled by mob, In
litigated, If not openly led, by the
prlent; If Diaz and (ionzale and other
Free Maon nliould bo murdered and
lint church hould inaiiguritto a bloody
elval war, Pope Leo Xlll. will not be
able, by any peclal pleading, to avoid
tho renponnlbiilty for all the fatal con
umpience that may etmuo,
For men havo not forgotten that Ig
mttiu hoyola, founder of tho Order of
Jowl, promulgated thla law;
Vinuiii ct nobl In Domino nulla

no count it ul loti can make It obligat ory
to commit a mortal or a pardonable
nln, utile the Buperior (In the name
of JeUH Chrlt, or In virtue of obedi

No doubt the general of the Jenult
hold tho amo doctrine to-day, and I
ready to apply It, If nonunion hould
demand - that the uperior In the order
ha the power to command an Inferior
to commit ft mortal nIii. It I a fruitful

It make it lo be of ilivlu" obligation
for every faithful Cat hollo in the United
Slate to be at heart tho mortal and
iiiiooiiiproiiiMng enemy of the princi

of the government under which he lives
and whono cpial law pern' it liliu to
plot and ooimplru agalnnt It with Im
punity, ll proclaim It lo the devout
believer an a truth upokon by the
mouth of Cod, that Hid great axiomatic,
principle, dear to tlie lover of human
liberty in every age, dear especially
dear beyond price or cxprennion to
llio people of the United Htatcn, on
which, an upon thu Immovable adamant
of eternal truth, their wyntem of govern
ment i hulldcd, arc false and criminal
and wlckml, making the United Hlate
lo be n part of the kingdom of nataii.
It make It hi and her duty, there
fore, to do all that it may be ponlblo to
do to eradicate thenn principle and
dentroy all that 1 bullded 'upon them;
to gain control, no far a ponnlble, of
thn education of youth and convert the
young to the Catholic faith; to win or

' Alroiidy the encyclical letter I
upon tiapollllcnl manifento In Ireland,
Archbishop McCabc, we are told, ha
written ft letter with reference to tint
approaching election of Lord Mayor for
Dublin. He ay ho I unable to un

and conscience cant their vote for Mr.
Winnlanlcy, who I both a home ruler
and it Free Mason. "A ft Free Maon
he I ft member of aoclnty which aim
to overthrow religion. To Free Ma
onry the revolution of tho last cen
tury were traceable, No one can plead

And Mr, VVInwtanlcy ha repudiated
Free Masonry to obtain vote; and ha'
been defeated. '!
Hut, for which thank be unto tho
(Jod of Hosts, "from whom all gloria

the church of Rome; for it ponnenne
Hie Invincible might of the pplrlt of tho
age and of the conviction of civilized

that church, lu love with and faithful
