We commend President Harrison for Ms action In closing our harbors to foreign emigrants while cholera is raging. UNDER the heading, " A Western City," our friend Stephen Collins writes two column article, filled with facts and figures, for the American of Pitts burgh. The city he refers to, and praises so generously is Omaha. THE nomination of J. Sterling Morton for governor on the democratic ticket is probably the best selection that party could have made. Nobody has any thing against Mr. Morton except that he part his name in the middle, and that's not a serious draw-back. Certain young gentlemen in South Omaha have organized an association similar to the Roman Y. M. I., and have asked the lice for a name. As that Bheet failed to comply with the requetit, we hasten to proffer an appro priate handle for this new child of popory. Make it A. P. I. Allied Papal Ignorance. OUR excellent friend, Rev. G. M. . Brown, who did effective service lust year fighting against popory, will de liver his farewell Bermon in Hanscom Park M. E. church, Sunday, September 11, 1802. Why wouldn't It be a pretty good Idea for the friends who are inter ested in this work to attend Hanscom Park M. E. church on that date and give him substantial evidence of their appreciation for the work he had done. Think this over. He deserves our hearty support. Let us show him we have not forgotten him. EVERY man who holds a public office and is known to, or supposed to, belong to the A. P. A.'s, will bo placed before the public by the Bee as an incom petent, dishonest, or a conniver at dis honesty, long before the next election. The object will be to prejudice the public against the association. People who know the tactics of that paper will not be misled, but those who have here tofore sustained it In every move, may not have had the scales entirely re moved from their eyes, yet even those persons will not need to be put on their guard a second time. RELIQION IN POLI TICS. Last year the Protestants of Douglas county banded themselves together for tne..purpose ol driving tne woman elurch out of politics. They went into " the fight not us democrats, nor as re publicans, Independents or prohibition ists but as Americans, fighting for American principles against a foreign potentate who was inslduously trying to abrogate many of the fundamental principles underlying our constitution and our form of government by making politicians and political parties sub servient to the wishes of the fraud who sits in Rome as the successor ol fit Peter, and who blasphemously terms himself the vlce-geront of God. How we'll they carried their point the re turns of the last election will only too readily disclose. That they did not consider their mission fulfilled when they learned of the unexpected victory they had achieved under the leader ship of Mr, J. II. Winapear, is made ap parent today. Made apparent by the fact that in nearly every section of the state ha been organized a patriotic as . sociatlon, which is working In harmony with the associations in Douglas county, and which will do much to prevent this great state from being handed over, body and breeches, to political hacks and demagogue be they democrats, republicans or Independent who are giving money to upbuild Roman Catho lic churches, who have promised to ap point only Romanist or Roman Catho lic sympathizer to position upon the board of fire and police commissioner In Omaha, In consideration of 12,000 Roman Catholic vote which are sup posed to bfl cast In Nebraska next November. That certain candidate have made a bid forth! vote, webe Hcvft we are able to prove, m w bar letter In our possession bearing upon thi question, which we have not given to th public, and will not give to the public until we ftre posltlv w are on th right scent, TliI papfef 1 not arepiiM lean papw although the editor I ft republican neither J It ft democratic Of people' party aper, and ftr that reason i prptm U treat at) side fairly, ami hot give currency, through the columns, Many it.-mn! that will In any way ! n the chsmvs t any cwmlUUto on cither of tho tlekets, unless i n nlwolutely ltive there ar gd and s-ifftctcnt reasons hy the public should N made eqttlntd with, the facts which ha come Into our possession. That the Roman's have centered their fight upon Hon. T. J. Majors, the candidal" for lieutenant-governor on the republican ticket, w have every reason to tx'llew; and that that fight t N'lng made iveauw Mr. Rom'wnter, In hi attack on Mr. Major lact week, charged the said Major with teliig an A. P. A., we also have reason to believe. Suppose, for the sake of argument, that wo admit Tom. Major In a mem ber of the American Protective associa tion, why should any American eltUen we do not consider papists American cltljien vote against him because of his connection with such organization? Certainly no Intelligent American would find in it sufficient reason why Majors' name should be left off the ticket he votes! And why not? Because the American Protective association believes In upholding The stars and stripes; The constitution of the United States and of the state in which It Is organ ized; because it believes in The public schools; In free speech; A free press; A fair ballot and an honest count; In liberty of conscience and the right of every person to worship God accord ing to the dictates of his own conscience; It believes In justice and equity being done both employer and employe; It believes In honest, Impartial pub lic officials, who do not "place the law of the Roman church above the laws of this country," which every loyal Ro mamist la bound to do. It believes there should be no inter ference by ANY ecclesiastical body with the duties of citizenship, and its mem bers will support these God-given liber-tles-the flag for which their forefathers fought, the constitutions which breathe and guarantee all that Rome hates, and which you love and enjoy--wlth tholust drop of their blood. Therefore, If there is anything In Its platform, which is embodied in the above, which you, as christians or as conscientious men, do not approve, wo shall not blame you for joining the Ro mans and making war on Torn Majors; If you can subscribe to that platform we want you to put your shoulder to the wheel and help us roll up a majority for Tom Majors which will learn Rome to keep out of politics in Nebraska, not only for next year but for all time. If it is a foot that Torn Majors Is an A. P. A. and we know he Is a Protes tant closely allied to that grout re ligious body known as the M. K. church every Protestant should see to It that his name Is on the ticket he votes, and that he places an X opposite It. It bo hooves every Protestant to see that Tom Majors Is not defeated. Rome has dragged her political organization which she Is pleased to term a church Into our politics let us drag It out for her? LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP. Young man, are you thinking of link ing your fortunes with those of a Ro man Catholic maiden? If you are, be careful! Think twice before you take so Important a step. Weigh well whether you would be master in your own house or whether you would tol erate the priest as master; whether your word or that of the father confes sor should be heeded by the woman who agrees to forsake all other men and cleave uoto you until death doyou part; 'whether foul-intentloned priests should pour Into her ears questions that they would not dare to ask her were you present, and which she under the seal of the confessional dare not Impart even to you. We say think twice before you take thi step, the imMrta.nco of which may never be realized until it Is too late. Remember that the priests ask of married women indelicate even obscene question while closeted in that sink of iniquity the Roman con fessional. We know thi is to! We know It because married women who have attended confession In Omaha have admitted a much! We know It, because the wife of a friend of our and be 1 an honest Roman Catholic told him, when he asked ber whether the priest propounded to her such ques tion as Rev. White said were asked of married women, that they "did not ask decent women such question" they only ask thera of the "ornery" women. Ife never thought to aak how ? knur tluy fven anhd Ihtm of Iht, "trmry" wtmimt Can yon tell u how she knew?

We know that Roman Catholic priest talk to married women, in IM rmfe tbrtuiJ, ujKrfi question you would not allow your own brotfmr to broach to your wlfo! -Jfow do ',w know thi?

For some time wo have wondered why every republican in the state of Nebraska, barring Tom Majors, paid homage to the gentleman on the Ike. But now we know, Tho secret Is out, IIeisOmahaI And Omaha has more than 16,000 vote to her credit. What fool asplrunt for an office would not like to bo on the good side of 10,000 votes? But this year poor Tom ho has said you can't have them. And ho means it. Oh, Tom, Tom! Why don't you repent, bo baptized of Rosewuter and bo saved? With you, Tom, goes the A. P. A. And when It busts, what will become of the bigots who have stood out against Mr. Rosewater we mean Omaha? OU, the thought Is" terrible! Just think of living In Omaha for years and only finding out tho 24 ult. that we were In Rosewater, Omaha said in his paper oh, no, not out loud, but between tho lines that no A. P. A. should bit nominated this year. And why not? Because they are members of a secret antl-Cuthollc association. From this, then, we are to con clude that he ha finally thrown down the gauntlet placed in hi hands by John Rush at Pacific Junction upon his return from Europe one year ago, and has taken up the Job which John Rush was, unable to carry through last full namely, '"busting" up the A. P. A. When Mr, Rosewater gets through he will know more about tho A. P. A.' than he does Unlay, and we shall know organizations have been successfully carried out. Watch your Rosewater strikers, and if they become obstreperous, and evince a desire to see accom plished what he so earnestly desires, sit down on thera with a "dull, sickening, thud." This is no time for mincing matters. Mr. Rosewater has declared himself. He Is against the A. P. A. To be fore-warned is to be fore-armed. Just let Mr. Rosewater make his fight, and we shall see who is right for God will sustain the right. Gorman friend of ours, that "she had not Intended to bear any more children, but the father confessor had told ber she should continue to replenish the earth." How did lie come to know she had concluded her family was largo enough? Can you answer that? Again, young man, we say to you, be careful. Look before you leap. Once you are married and your wife goes to confession, tho father confessor has the power to make your life as pleasant as a summer night, or fill it full of trouble, grief and tears. At hi command, though she loved you as a mother loves her child, she would hector or cajole you until you were forced to do just what the confessor had planned and plotted had probably planned and plotted to bring about even before he had granted you a permit to wed one of hi communicants; at his command she would leave rour bed and board, would even forget to cleave only unto you and would cleave to other men for counsel and advice; at hi command, probably at his solicitation she would Iks more than a penitent to him. Bhe might even go as firr a the following dlwpatch how they too often go, and when they go tbl far you find you have made A mistake: Montkba'v, P. Q.. Aug, 30.

White was there and delivered three lectures. The first two were free. The third was for men only, being tho same a ho delivered in this city last fall, upon "auricular confession." Each evening the hall was packed and many were forced to go home without hear ing tho lectures. Those in attendance Inform us that he scored the Roman hierarchy unmercifully, yet he was particular to say the members of the Roman catholic church were not to blame for the existing state of affair In their church, except so far a they did not attempt to remedy the evil. He believed the women were not, as a rule, corrupt, though that fact wo not due in any way to tho teachings of their priests but to their own good sense and strong personal will, of which evon the terror of excommunication could not deprive thera. He believed the books, from which hi book "Homo" wa translated, were authentic and that they could not be disproved; he thought that if Roman Catholics of American birth were educated In the public schools, It would not bo very Jong be fore they aw bow fallacious were the claim of the priests; how blasphemous were tho pretention of men who set themselves up a the vlco-guronts of God upon earth; and how injurious were tho questions propounded by unmar ried priest to married and unmarried females in thi confessional under the protons that they were naked with the olo end In view of learning whether the penitent had been guilty of sin In thought, actor word, Ife claimed th hierarchy knew when It was safe. It know It Is not afo if Intelligence stalk about the land; If there I ft publle school on every bill-top; If tho MM Is placed In tb hands of tho peopJfi, and the poopl ro4 for themselves; It know it is safe as long Its seven million eomrour1 mnUi ftro kept In fgnoranco In Ignor ance not atone of lite bible, hot In Ig noeaitoe of t schema tl this country by cajollcry If IWs by krnwsl rvht'tlioii ifmivsMryt H kn that thoso eommttnlesol are so hi I ml In their faith, o loyal to their parish priests, that they would not question anything they received Instructions to soe earrlol out; and, to keep them In this condition, to keep them they will not have sufficient courage to say "such an act would he treasonable; the law of my country should not be sulworvlont to those of my church, and If they are they are not In accord with the consti tution which guarantee religious free dom, protection to every man In the pursuit of lifts llliorty and happiness, and which declares all men are created equal. I will take my religion from Rome, but my (sdlllc must bo the choice of my own mind," After Rev. White had finished his lecture, ho offered his book for sale and before he left tho city about four hundred copies hod been disposed of. It Is assorted that the same old chest nut, "we will not allow hltn to speak: and If ho attempts it, shall egg him," was indulged in by tho Romanists. But as Rev. White ha seen considerable service, he defied their threat and de livered his lecture, although tho party who leased the hall for the course of lectures, charged the highest rental ever exacted from a lecturer for its use, and in spite of the fact that the city officials mulcted him for the highest license ever Imposed upon a lecturer. This was the more noticeable becauso only ono week before, Father Nugent occupied the same hall, rent free was not required to take out ft license and yet charged an admision fee of 60 cents jusWu'tce the amount axled by Kev. White. This is where wo have free speech when a Roman wants to talk; this Is where wo see justice done to people who are not of the accursed race of heretics; and this is where no man should be "discriminated agulnst on account of his religious convictions" a la Roman resolution boforo demo cratic convention in Nebraska, and sec tion ten of tho Iowa democratic plat form). Tho Roman of Missouri Valley who cannot distinguish latin from tho lan guage of tho Aztecs, proclaimed quite loudly that the books Rev. White used were not authentic, so a forfeit of $500 was offered if any priest, bishop, arch bishop or cardinal would undertake to disprove thorn. Up to the hour of go ing to press no Roman Catholic had come forward to claim the money. Rev, Chas. Chlniquy says tho Roman Catholic confessional is the "modern sodom," while Rev, White says "Its outer walls are pearly white, while its inside is blacker than the walls of per dition," Both are correct. And now you father and mothers who send your children to confession, ask yourselves If you would like your sons and daughters who know nothing of sin, to go to the confessional to re ceive tholr first lesson? Think whether you would lke that bright child to be questioned upon something It knows nothing about; whether you would like to have its train of thought turned tiH)n thing of a corrupt nature ruther than upon love and reverence for God. Think this over, and If you conclude we are wrong In any of our statements, come to our office and we will convince you that you are not acquaiutod with yocr religion If such practices are religion. REARED IN IGNORANCE. Roman Catholic Children ot School Age Grow up in Ignorance. SiDNBr, Neb., August 19, 1802, Kditor American: If anyone imagine that the Roman Catholic are losing tholr religious fervor or fidelity for tho pope, or lessening their hatred toward the American publlo school, they cer tainly do not understand the situation. People who do not study the Roman Catbolio question cannot possibly realize the many depredations commit ted by tbcm against American Institu tion. The following quotation, from the Catbolio Quarterly Review, Boston, 'We would much rather have our children grow up in Ignorance than be taught In ft school that it not Catholic," ha a living example in Sidney, which is one of the most dastardly outrage ever perpetrated upon humanity, Thi I manifested In the family of one of our prominent businen men; this family (Roman Catholic) consist of the father, mother and four children, three of whom are of school age, the oldest being about fourteen year old. It sound Incredible to say that these children have never attended ft school of any kind, either public, private or religious, but such I a disgraceful fact, They even do not know the A, B. C'f. and are absolutely unacquainted with the lowest form of education. Their parent will not permit thera to attend the public school, and claim to be unable to send them to th Catholic school. These children are prohibited from associating with Protestant children who ve n education. Neighbor say (be mother uses language unfit for publication, and It Is safe to say that tho children wiil lis adept In Immoral Ity by being Immured In IgitoiHiicst ami Mfiiiiity, It I Indeed pity tht liters) utitoruthat r-MMren hsve tor parents, Komsn Catholics, who sr wrapped up In Catholicism that they overlook ths vital Interests ol their own offsptlng. This family l In goml financial circumstance, "ivy do not claim or pretend to bo too poor to fur nish proper clothing, etc., fur their chiMren to attend th publlo school. Tito only reason they give I that they are Unman Catholics, and a such, the American public school Is unfit for tho education of their children. This proves which these parents lovo and esteem most, their church or their children, Tbl I only ono of the msny In stances which goes to prove the Catho lics' fidelity for tho pope, end it I reasonable to presume that there are thousands of other families in tho United State a debased as Is thi one. Hero in our midst with tho publlo school open and accessible to all, are children raised in abject Ignorance with no other plea than that they are Uonmn Catholics, and at good Catho lics they cannot patronize tho publlo schools. They Ignore our public schools, and In liou thereof they breed and cultivate vile Ignorance in its most perfidious perfection. I)o the people realize the import of this, and the de basing Influences and results of It per petuation? It is a crime against na ture, against statoand civilization, and in truth against everything which tends to make belter people. This Is an In sult which should be resented by every loyal citizen. What Is It that retards the moral progress of humanity ar.d fills the land with superstition and vice? What I it that crowds our jails ' and adds to tho number of beggars, tramp and paupers that Infests our glorious country? It is ignorance and Catholicism. Ignorance, a word that Insults modern civilization and casts ft slur upon humanity. Ignorance should be assassinated In the cradle, and over its tainted enrcs reared . grand mon ument of Intelligence, Intelligence, the greatest boon which mankind Is heir to, yet it Is valued as naught In comparison with the Uonmn Catholics' love for his church and pope We Protestants are injured directly and indirectly by coming In contact with Ignorant Catholics, and it is op portune here to say that the success of Catholicism depend upon tho Ignor ance of its adherent. It Is high time for the Protestants to wash from their eyes the cobweb of antiquity and take look at tbelr surrounding. Why allow this disgrace to continue, and the percentage of illiteracy to Increase, when the alternative Is in reach? Catholics should be compelled to edu cate their children. Protestants, If you have any patriotic blood left in your veinn, take action at once and exterminate this disgrace. An Amkkican. Portal, Ncbr., Aug. 30, 1802. Ed. American: The case here In which Agent Greenaugh was arrested, for al leged assault, came off Saturday at Papilllon. All five of the attorney there, and some say, the judge, wore Interested In the prosecution, and every Roman in the vicinity hovered around anxious to help, Phil Winter and I. A, Haulsne took Greenaugh' cast:, and without subpoenaing a single witness went In and put tho enemy to rout. The concocted story of assault all fell to pieces under Winter' cross-examination, and tho jury brought in a ver dict of "not fiullty," and further said that the complaint was wiihout founda tion and malicious. This compels tho prosecutors to pay the costs, whbh run up to about W0 with attorney fee ex tra. It paralized the Romans, but tickled the boys mightily, The real cause of the trouble was well known by the people here, some of those inter ested In pushing the case having boast ed that It was their purpose to "drive out tho d A, P. A.'s" The indica tions now are that It will be awful bard driving, American, 8 ineo receiving the above communi cation we havo learned that tho cats paw for the Romans In the case has lost bis position with the M.
