I lev. John Willlaiu, in morning
iper, nmnientlng on the caune whh li
hdtitlio rult of the la1 eleetltm
ay: "The A. I'. A. innplo reorted
tothomoxt ontrageou nlander of the
lUmian church and hierarchy to arouw
I'nib'Ktant alarm and prejudice." Thr
lU'ven'fid gentleman i certainly Ignor
ant of tho true hlxtory of the I toman
church or id an ho denlre the favor of
Irhdi 1 toman Int. The A. 1 A. jH-ojde
havo reKorUfd to no "outrageou hlaiid
ors" of tho Itoman i-hurch but have
Hlmply preMenknl it poat blntory to an
Intelligent thinking public, and inn
much a tho jMilltlcal action of it devo
tee aro very largly controlled by the
prlewt or agent of tho jwipe, wIiomo
only aim and dewlro 1 to liccomo the
sujiremo judge of tho world over all
affair temporal or Hpirituul. Thl
fact together with the Militlcal intrigue
of JeHuitlcal adherent in our local af
fair i what wrought tho change.
Hy placing before the mind of the
American j!oplo thews fact they have,
been ct to thinking, and the return of
tho election aro tho remiltw of that
thinking. Hltory i generally accept
ed a dealing only with fact and It i
not enough for Itev. William to flatly
lntlnato it untruth. Tho American
AHwocitttlon diMj not demand a "birth or
blood" qualification in a public olllcliil,
but itdoeinHlt that uch ofllcial hIiiiII
owe hi FlHST allegiance to thl govern
ment without a mental rewervation in
livvor of tho lil and that no foreign
I)wer, whether religion or temjioral,
httll have a voice In it political affair.
Tho American AHociation di; not ex
pect to gain it point by other than fair
and honorable mean.
The great policy of the American
people to-day is and should be America
for Americans meaning all thoxo
who are wilhout mental reservation in
favor of the pope or any other prince
The public school syHtem cannot
be too carefully guarded for thelr-in-lles
the ground-work of tho future
greatness of our American inHtitutlon,
Everyone should see the offer made
by The Am tun; an, AdvertiHcment In
The local government of Manitoba
received a set backOct. 27 through a
decision of the Canadian supremo court
declaring tho public school act of 1880
unconstitutional. Two years ago Attor
ney General Mertin introduced and
carried ehrough tho legislature an act
abolishing the I'rotestant and Koiiiinli
schools, which bad exittep prior to
that date, and substituting for thorn
purely ecular schools. Tho HomanlHts
refused to obey on the ground that the
constitution guaranteed their own
schools to them and have since carried
on their schools In spite of the law.
The provincial courts on being appealed
to upheld the validity of the act, and
Komanists carried the act to the su
preme court with the above rcMult.
The government will uow appeal to the
mperial privy counsel, tho highest
udlcial body of the British empire.

What is "Canvassing?"
A witness having said, before the
Clare election committee, that ho hud
been "all day canvassing," was directed
to "ib'Iino" canvassing, which he did
thus "To try to induce and force tlio
voters to voto for Corny O'Urlon; and,
if they would not, to give them drink
till they could riot voto at all." Lon
don News, 1S.3.
Hoar in mind, that the Union I'ncilie
takes second-class passengers through
on Fast Express Trains.
