I say It in truth here tonight that his
km ha brought disgrace ujsn hi
tiante. ( AiUum.) When a man leads
our armies U) victory, and it th gteal
and grand man that tieneral Sherman
was, yon kimt it U a sadness to hi
heart whrn bis son becomes a sworn
Jly of a foreign power. And Roman
tm Is not only a itloul power, but it
ta foreign political power. The ixiih
it a foreigner; the professors in their
chwls, thoir collrgoa, and tho univor
lti almobt to a man ara foreignors;
nearly all of tholr prioata are for
oitfuom, their church Is dominated by
aafowlirn InflnitnrHA! tlw l.nrUlnl Inn of
their church ih a foreign legMaHum
aim uie ut-inun lhi none church (a a
foreign political power. (Applauao.)
Father Sherman aaya they have ten
millions of people in this country.
Well, we will accept that for all pur
imaea tonight. I don't think they have
got that many, but we will say ton
million. Then there are ten million
subjects of a foreign power in this
country, and the Buectea of Romanlam
depend upon tho close and specific
obedience upon tho part of tho people.
Our nation depends upon tho Intelll-
lenceiuul the virtue of our citizens,
(AppfaiiHe.) There lu not an Intelligent
person hero tonight but can aeo in a
moment that here ia an lrreprosalblo
con ft ie t to n in 11 1 it m'subjecta to a fore I g n
power, tho aucceaa of which depends
pon olora and apoolfled ohedltsnco In
land where every man la a ruler
iaana cair aucoeaa depends upon tho In
ttilllgenco and the virtue of our people.
Ono side or the other must be subdued;
ono or tho other must prevail, and
there la a conflict In our midst that will
0 on, and mual go on, until It la
settled ono way or tho other, and as J
look into your facoa here tonight and
i fool and real lao tho enthusiasm of your
hearts upon this question, I believe It
"will be iettled In tho right direction.
IJLoud and continued applause.)
Father Sherman eloea a very silly
thing when ho comet to any city and
places himself on exhibition, and culls
attention to himself because he la the
sson of a great man; so far as tho truth
la concerned, so far as the statements
;are concerned, It don't make any differ
Hneo whether hla father was a general
in the army or a cobbler, his statements
must stand or fall upon their own
werlt, and he must atand or fall as a
iroan pon his own merit, and not upon
the merit of his father. (Applause.)
Ha itands as the representative of a
system,, and that system must bo judged
According to Its merits, and he must
neither stand or fall with that system
according to tho merits that It may
have. So I think it la well for ua to
cxamlno this question upon Its own
tmorits, for Catholicism Is a jwlltlcal
-power claiming here the courtesies and
tho attention of church when It is
not entitled to them. If It has come
among us as a church and is wielding a
-political power and dictating, or at
tempting to dictate our legislation, It
Is time for vis to call a halt and say to
them that no church can live among
ww and receive the courtesies of a church
whllo, in fact, It U a political power.
-As to whethef or not Romanism is a
political power, wo must judge accord
ing to the teachings of Romanlam.
"When we know what a church teaches,
we know what It is. When wo know
'the principles of ft political party, we
know what merit to accord to it. Wo
know some of the teachings of the
canon laws. They have been published
published in our papers, read In Ber
renous and announcod in lectures, and It
ta not necessary ft r mo to repeat ihem.
We read in their canon laws that all
fciuraan power lies under the wpe; that
the -civil power ia subordinate to the
aplritual power; that the pope is the
vlce-gerent of God among men, and
tthat he rules kings and nations by
divine right, and that all common
wealths, rulers and legislators must
raubmit to the will of the pope. It
teachea that the pope may annul atate
Jawa, and set anldo the laws of any
nations which are objectionable to the
Homan Catholic church.
It claims the right to examine all
tbooks before they are published and
withhold Hum from publication If It
ees fit. It claims the right to control
the whole school system. The church

man Catholic is due to the nit ami
the church, and 1 want to ak ytu if,
In the light of that fact, any Roman
Catholic can bo a loyal cltUcn? (Cries
of "No, no.")
Tho council of Constance decreed
that no fahh was to l kept with here
tics, and that decree of (Tonstanco la on
record as a part of their law Unlay.
And there Is no faith to bo kept with ft
heretical nutlon, or a heretic of any
kind. Then these Roman Catholics
say that whatever sin they coin mil tho
priest can forgive them, so If a Roman
Catholic should violate his oath to the
United StateB how quickly th priest
could forgive him. (Applause.) I ask
again, what assurance can a Roman
Cawholio give of his alleglanco to this
nation, or any other nation on tho face
of the earth? He la first and always
a Reman Catholic.
Did you notice the letter of authority
that the pope sent to Satolll? Just at
tho close of that letter ho said to him:
"Whatever penalties you lnfllot, and
what sentences you pronounce we will
sustain, ctmstilHtitm and npoalolk utith
ority to the contrary noUrithnUtmlivg.."
And what did that mean? It simply
meant that the power of popery was be
hind Satolll to enforce his commands
and make his acts binding even though
tho constitution of tho United States,
and of tho states of tho Union wero op
posed to him. (Applause.) And when
a class of men are sworn to' support
popery, and aro sworn to be loyal to
Romanism first, last and always, I can
see no possible way for them to bo loyal
oltlseu. ,of thu -United States. (Ap
plauseWe lct men to office and
the jBrsl thing they do is to take an
outh U dupiHirt thott$Uutlon of tho
statu- find of thir Unk($ States, and
when we ".loot a Romanist and ho comes
up before the officer and awears to sup
port that constitution, I want to know
how much It means, when he has a
mental reservation, as long as It does
not conflict with my allegiance to Rome.
How much does It mean when Rome Is
a political power and may make war,
and It does make war? Here only two
or three years ago tho popo set aside
seven millions of dollars for war pur
poses. When there is a political party
in the Held a political power here
that holds the allegiance of all its
members in this way, I say they cannot
very well be loyal citizens of this gov
ernment, and cannot and ought not to
hold office among ua. (Applause.)
Father Sherman spent a good deal of
his time telling you how many Roman
Catholics foughton the battle Held, and
how gome of them blod and died, but ho
didn't tell you that Roman Catholics
shed the blood of our "Martyred Presi
dent," Abraham Lincoln. (Applause )
He didn't tell you that far more than
half of the deserters that left the army
during the war of the rebellion were
Roman Catholics, and that the pope
sent a letter with hla blessing to Jeff
Davis. He failed to tell you that. .
There Is ono great difuoulty with us
In this country; there are so many of
our people who say, "There are a great
many of these Roman Catholics who
will not finally hold to the church; If
there should oomo any great test, In
the end they will bo loyal to tho
country." And let mo say to you that
la one of tho weaknesses of some of our
Protestant ministers. They will preach
a sermon on Romanism, and wind it up
by saying that in tho end a great num
ber of Roman Catholics would not hold
to the church If thore should come any
To bo Continued.
A Pitiful Case.
An old man attended at the North
London police court on Saturday and
desired to thank the magistrate for as
sistance given him In obtaining a sum
of money. Tho man Is elghty-flvo years
of ago, and his equally aged wlfo saved
about 'M, and when she died It was
found she had bequeathed tho whole
of the money to tho Roman Cathol Ic
church In Tottenham Court-road, for
the purpose of setting up a statue to
St. Joseph. Tho wishes of thedetseased
were carried out, but the husband
thought it hard that he should not
have been consultod in the matter,
more especially as he was very poor,
