In Chicago, except tho Hohools, grow
with Itti growth? How comon It that In
.addition to tho expjndlturo'of imllllon
of dollars for parks, nunnorlos and eon

It not tlmo that Chicago woko up
and placed Americano on tho

Ignorant a man Is, tho hotter ho
can bo controlled by tho church.
Tho popa han lately decreed
that America Is to have a patron
Balnt, and Columbuu In tho pi;r
nonago delected for canonization.
Tho Idea unod to ba that saints
were those whose Uvea had been
devoted to acts of ploty or fanat
icism, and thero Is not known to
have, been anything specially
pious about tho adventurous
sailor who rediscovered tho now
world. But tho pope settles tho
matter. Ho has informed the
Columbian minister of hU Inten
tion, and that the first step to
ward its fulfillment the boajtl;
flcatlon will toon hi takori. At
tho same time, France is to have
a, new patron In St. Joan of Arc,
and both beautlflcatlons are to bo
hold together. AltnoH every
other country has its saint. Bt.
George does duty for Kngland,
St. Andrew for Scotland, Ht.
David for Wales, Ht, Patrick for
Ireland, St. Donls for Franco,
St. Anthony for Italy, Ht. James
for Spain, Ht. Sebastian for Por
tugal and St, Nicholas forltussla.
Hut why St. Denis Is to havo a
supporter Is not stated.
What Columbus will ba called
when added to tho saintly cata
Joguo Is not announced. Thero
Is already a St. Christopher, so
that a new title will apparently
havo to bo chosen. I tako tho
liberty to suggest "Saint Idol
fltrous." v
Visitors at tho World's Fair wonder
why they aro requested .to remove their
hats while viewing tho relics and docu
ments of Columbus In tho La Habeda
monastery. I could not understand tho
reason of this retjuest until I suw tho
oil painting In tho Mexican exhibit en
titled "Torment of Cuauhtemoc,"
where you seo these d'tvoted Spaniards
roasting tho feet of tho poor Indian In
order to rnako him give up his gold,
for gold is tho Tlomnn god, and this is
tho way they havo of showing their
respect for Its worshipers,
On August 12th at tho corner of
Peoria and Madison streets, Chicago.
Americans could havo wltrinxnod a good
Illustration of Home rule' Mrs, Emma
Hlce, tho Kvangellnt, . attempted to
lecture on tho lives of Ht, Peter and
Paul, before a crowd of about .'1,000
people, She hai hardly commenced to
talk before she was assaulted with rotten
eggs, musk-melons and other, mlsslls.
Kho stood her ground n artfully until
sho was bruised from head to foot, when
sho fainted, and It was with cllllloulty
that sho was curried away from the
mob. Prior to tho meeting Captain
Mahoney had been applied to for police
protection. None, however, was fur
nished. Tho police who were on tho
outskirts of the crowd did not attempt
to Interfere, and no arrests were made.
This Is a fair specimen of Homo's Idea
of freedom and liberty of speech, Tho
Cbleago polloe force is so rank that a
largo number havo recently been dis
charged on account of their being In
league with the criminal classes. It It
not time for the better class of Homitn
Catbolleo to comhlno with tho A. P.
A.'s to put men on tho police force who
are not criminals? The fact that they
aro In good standing In tho church Is
not a sulllcient mason why this class of
men iiould hold ofllees as public pro
tectors, II, Nkamc.

A London contemporary writes it
follows: A recent visitor to Ireland
dcscrllios tho control which the Kentish
prlesthoiKl exercise. Domestic servants
aro chiefly Hoinanlxts. It was noticed
in several families that conversation
was cheeked on tho entrance of the
waitress, and altogether stopped when
tho subject was religious. A recent
pamphlet, describing tho convertlon of
a Uomanlst, had been condemned by
tho priests. A copy mysteriously dls"
appeared from tho drawing room; an
other was obtained. This also disap
peared, No doubt was entertained as
to tho cause. Tho wife of tho resident
manager of a principal bank had spoken
to her maid on religious subjects, Tho
bishop wroto to tho directors, threaten
ing to wlthdrow tho "Catholic" deposits
unless tho manager was dismissed, Tho
directors declined, saying they wero
responsible for tho manager, but not
for his wife, A farmer was ordered to
dismiss two of tils men for attending
Mr, Moody's services. It is the pre
vailing conviction that all which Is
snld and done In tho hounchold is
known to tho priest through tho con
fessional, Tho servant has two masters,
und tho paramount authority Is not
that of tho head of the house,
HI'.I Contest.
Thero Is now pending in the county
court tho contest of a will which Is
signed by "Mary McKorrny." Tho will
appears in regular form and Is regular
on It face, but the heirs of tho dead
woman are contesting it.
TIicho heirs say that tho mime signed
to tho will is not tho name of tho dead
woman; that at the time sho Is repre
sented us having signed tho will she
was In cxtremlo, did not know what
she was doing, and did not know her
own name.
Tho will was executed but a few hours
before her death, and by the terms of
the Instrument sho gave all of her
property to certain Catholic Institu
tions In this city, Hhu died at tho
Catholic hospital February 22, lHll.'l, to
which place sho had been taken prior
to her death.
Tho woman wits of Irish birth. Homo
ten years since she wai divorced from
her husband, F.dward McKcnna, when
she removed from Omaha to Wyoming,

Ail Independent View.
It seems that Pope Ieo, In bis en
cyclical on labor, has attacked the
scriptures that which ho himself says
Is tho word of (iod In his attempt to
place a thing above man, and tnako It
more powerful In directing human
affair. God gave to man dominion
overall the earth; tho pope tries to
reverse this and give tho thing (money)
dominion over man; and yet the pope
pretends to be governed In all things
by tho word of Uod,
4f tho pope is as Ignorant of the
science of government as ho Is of the
scripture, ho certainly'. Is un unsafe
teacher; and Jf he Is as ignorant of the
luws of common sense as ho Is of tho
laws of nature, his advice to American
el tl ens upon any question pertaining
to their temporal happiness docs riot
amount to much, Tho only animal
with which he can be compared Is a
democratic or republican politician.

Is It a Fact!
It would be interesting to know the
grounds for tho expectation which Is
said to bo (thorlshod at the Vat ican that
Satolll, tho representative of the pope
In tho United States, will Noon bo
officially recognized by the government
of this republic, If 1 'resident Cleve
land, or anybody authorized to speak
for him, has pi-ouilncd such tin un
American recognition of un ecclesinnil
cnl authority the fact should be made
known to millions of people who feel
that nothing tif the kind can bo toler
ated In a country of civil and religious
freedom. CU viiand Daily Ismler.

Knelt letters show what tho demisiratle

they say Home must rule. Our people
have bey ii n to get their eyes oien.
Last fall It made no dllTereneeas to the
party whether republican, domoeratki
or Independent. Now we hear our Prot

read of our president addressing Pope
fio XIII, as ho did In his lust letter,
Our Independent party people In this
part of tho county wero a majority
from the republican party, They say
that they were foolish for voting as
they did, for tlieir party helped Cleve
land Into olllee, They can see after It
Is too late. 1 am a republican to the
back bone, and If those that left the
republican party had stayed to the old
party we would havo a republican
president today; not ono that would
listen to Cardinal Gibbon and thank
that old Italian devil that Is In that
Vatican on tho Tiber, and for tho great
Interest that he has In America.
May God enlighten every Protestant
so be h'i may see that he is In danger,
and that he must put his hand to the
helm and work lor liberty. We see
right at home that the Irish Catholic
wants things his own way, P.vcn In
the school meetings they try U get a
Catholic scIkhiI board, but thank God
tho Protestants got tho majority, and
the Irish Catholics "urn not In it," as
the saying Is, I hope they will gel left;
they must drop from nflloo, or we pisr

banished from the face of the earth,
We know Hoiiutnlsm Is doing nil It

moment, you Protestant teople, and see
the condition yen are In. As things
st md ut the present time, we are al
most ruled by Homitu Catholics. All
our navy, or war department, is ruled
by Catholics; our president, Mr. Cleve
land, Is ruled by a Catholic. If a Cath
olic tifllcer has done wrong enough to
be expelled from olllee, all they do is
notify Glb'sms; ho giws to
Cleveland and say that olllcer must
stay, mi tho president keens that man,
Why duo he keep him? Meeause I tome
rule him. If a Protestant ol!lcor
does nut do half the wrong, he Is
kicked out and a Cuttiolic put In his
place. The only way that we can ac
complish tho overthrow of Itome Is
by tint ballot. Ho let us all work

An officer of one of the city regi

said: "It Is an Insult to tho

A memlier of tho Second regiment,
