F.mToit AMt.uu ,n: The render of this pits are familiar with the letter of President I'levelniul to the tHipo of Homo, tvmgrntulatlng him hip the iva Ion f tl d .'tilth aunlvf retry of his ele vation to thneplwopney f Itemo, That letter deem not express tho sentiment of hi least ,lfty million of our ample, and In certainly offensive to most of tin. If It bo true that i president In to ex press In tiU tublki net whet ho fairly think represont the view held by m majority of ttut people, then our presi dent hnn cerUlnly misrepresented uh thin time; or If ho I to publicly act for what hn bo I level Is for tho present and futuro goes! of tho country, to cultivate intimate relations with tho pupal throne, he In dimply stupid. Tho Aniorlcan people do not unite with tho president Id extending to the popo any congratulation boarlnif upon ills ofllclul elevations. Wo are adverse to any man being congratulated lor being elevated to distin guished rank in any form of organized evil, which means peril to free nations Why did not tho president of tho United State, at tho time of tho elevation of 1'hllip Hrook to tho bishopric of the Episcopal church In our own country", ex tend bin congratulation to that roble, well-beloved and remark Ablo man. Tho spirit and senti ment of such an act would, too, have found an echo in million of our pooplo. Though tho politi cal wisdom of a president doing such a thing upon a purely re ligious occasion, might well have been questioned. There in a question te bo asked which ha a fine stiletto point to it; Did Orover Cleveland (tend thin letter to tho popo solely up on the ground of religion senti ment? Certainly not! Such a course would bo without a pre cedent In American diplomacy; nor wmld ho, on surdi pretext, Insult tho religious sentiment of fully fifty million people, Wan -the dominant motive whloh determined tho nun ding of this Jotter, that of a political consid eration? Certainly It wa! No other vemlon which hit In it a raln of eriw can be given. And tho American people ought to take their prcHlrient Into moral account for thin act. Whichever horn of -the dilemma I taken, tho v,kh( In bud enough. The fthamu of It i deep, and the meaning of it may bo equally deep, Mr, Cleveland I certainly not ignorant of that rnot terrible JcNHon taught by tho hUtory of modern nation. vl. that any !OurteloH, or friendly Intercom-no of any kind, between tho head of an independent nation and tho head of tho papal power, 1 dangcrou In tho oxtremo, and I full of tho certainty of tho rnoNt dangcrou com plication, I feel like calling tho attention of Mr, C!loveland to tho exarnplo of a former president, Mr,, Lincoln, Having evi xlenco of th dlpoItlon of tho pope to Interfere In American affair, Mr, Lin coln dire(!t tho necrotary of utete, Mr, Heward, Ut authorize our mlnlnter, then reIdent at Ilome, to notify tho poxj that It wa confidently expected by tho American prenldent that thoro would bo no papal Interference in tho affair of tho United Btate, It Mhould )m widely known that tho preoidont aent for Cardinal Gibbon, who i tho leading Itoman Catholic cardinal in tho Kngllh-jeaklng world, ulnco tho death of Cardinal Manning, of England, to confer with him upon matter political, And bo It known that following thl prolonged confer once, thl letter Urthopopo wa written.

It waa u plain caae of "taxation without representation."

They are poor people, mot of then , and claimed to tie unable to pay tho price linked for lota.

Iiul county poor farm: Home little time ago we had nccaajon to vlfdt the vicinity of the Ht,. Loul county poor farm, and wo were then HiirprlHcd to learn that the Lexington MAY HOME DAY FIND IN J1IM aobool had been cloaocl alnco laat fall. Homo people didn't know tho reaaon why; other, apparently, didn't want to tell. Knowing the overaeer of tho poor farm to bo & rabid Catholic, our 'iaplclon wore arouaed, and tho result of our investigation are given In the above head line. It I a fact that tho overaeer of tho poor farm, Mr. Poirler, latfall wanted a Catholic appointed teacher at the Lexington hcIioo; a Protestant lady wa went, however. Hut a month or two afterward the achool wa chaeod for want of pupil. Now, there are children enougk In the nolghtiorhood, and it might bo difficult to explain why there ahould not bo enough pupil to warrant tho achool auporlntondent to keep the acuool open. Hut if we are not m In taken, Mr. Poirler, thatoveree rof tho poor farm, went around among tho neighbors, and teaalng or threatening, or orhap bribing them, got them to take their children away" from tho school, till only two or three pupil wore left. If Mr. Poirler had beem a private citizen we (the Smiulia) would not have nald more about It, but he 1 a county official. And Ht. Loul doesn't hire any men and give them lelaure to boa our school In the Interest of papiaU. These charges will be laid before the county eommlaaloners at their next meeting, and wo shall lnalat uion an Invest Igat Ion; and we ladieve our read ers will agre-e with u whe-n we say Mr. Poirler should bo given a doae of hi own medicine. Our cemnty can go without his valuable services. " Furthermore, we nave learned that Mr. Poirler' term of office expired laat January, and he holds office only till his successor litis been npiointed. let the county board appoint a new over se'er of the poor farm and the scheiol can bo opened again.

Hho tried to extricate kernedf from hvr grap, when another papist girl struck her a fearful blow In the hack of tho head, demanding that she take the orange from her dress. This she pos itively refuae.d te do, when tho papist lore It by force from her garineint, Boeing the Protestant girl was In danger of bedng killed by tho enraged papists, two Kngllahmen rushed to her de-fense, and drove the papists away. The affair was so disgraceful, a tho language of one of tho papist gH had lieon both profane and olmeono the superintendent discharged her. Tho papists demanded that the Prokstunt girl should bo discharged alsei, and threatened If their wishes were not rjmipllod with, telodvelnabealy, "The grJ ha nn much right to show her colors as you," replied tho overseer, "and I will not discharge her," The case wa referred to tho iiierlntend ent, and he knowing that no Protest ants could be found to do tho dirty work the paplau did In the mill, and fearing the owne.rn would dose the mill If a strike took place, he himself suspendeid the girl for tho time being, and tho Itoman Catholic threaten to kill her If she is Instated, Thl wa not enough persecution, howover, and when, a few weeks later, the girl found employment In a bakery In the neigh borhood, and her services were found se valuable nor waires were ra seel twice, tho papists went to her employer ami told him If he did not diachaive her the Itoman Catholics would boycott him, and he dlacharged her.

I'MIUirTitK Amhiii'AN, lsr Hlri t have frequently read and heard of lab that ltomnnini should Isi regarded and dealt with merely In It mlt!cal aet. In other word, It, I with the jHilltte'al wot k of It. niie we are to Ih ttnttcorned, am) that It matters not so muedi what the need of Homo may Is., It Is the ptselle'ei of Home we have lei watch. Now, to my mind, that Is an unwar ranted and unwarrantable narrowing of the subject. "A a man thlnkelh In his heart, so I ho," Is a truism juat a, much now as when iHnnod by tho wise man, and if a man ha stored in hi memory and tressurod In his heart e'i tain dogmas, the which ho mut bellove or Ihi damned, why, the natural result will ho that his lire In its activities must correspond with tho Ixdlofa, thus becoming a part of tho man. It Is the slmpllest nonaemse to attempt to dissociate tho creied of tho Hu manist from hi politic. To gether they stand or fell, and It would augur well for. the futuro of America If tho Protestants of America were as true to their professed beliefs as tho Humanist Is to his, A Itoman Catholic weiuld ho false to hi most solemn obligations If he did not stand ready at all times, by word, vote or sword, to seek to establish the power of popo over state. It I the creed of Homo that bring her In cemlltet with tho progressive spirit of tho age and with our Protestant institutions; that pit her devotee "agin tho guvernmlnt" wherever that gov ernment dares to declare Itself free; that put around her Im prisoned nun a ban-tt t fur mor difficult to pleree th'".!! aall. It in the (Jreed of Ilome that de mands "Implleltj uiiqiM!slIofili! obedience, such as robs a man or woman of tho exercise of their rights as free people. It Is tho creed of Homo that forged link by link a chain that now binds her votaries In one common phalanx of slaves, and makes her the dread of political parties In republics and empire; and despite all Unit can bo said to tho conlary, the head of the Itoman Calked lo church of today has more power than anyone who ever occupied a similar place. Temporal supremacy Is what tho wearer of tho tiara Is reaching out after, Temporal sovereignly I but a minor affair, and a mart who can make hi Inliuence felt In the shafting ot tho destines of nations, must he possessor of no meuin power, Who is tei blarno for all this? For what doe the Protestant church exist? Is It one of lis chief function to protest against the errorsof Home? Hut hav8 theiy thus protested? No! For year have they gone on wltlj thelron varied lines, almost completely losing sight of tho worst forms of Idolatry beside them, while sending missionaries to heathen lands, allowing a collosal system of Imprisonment to grow tip be side her In tho form of nunneries, con trolled In supreme disregard to national laws, while going Into other hinds In order to let the oppressed go free, Worse still, our Protestant ministers too often boctomo the apologists of Homo, while our tony Protestant fam ilies must forsooth send their children te Koman Cat hollo academics to get the benefit of their superior (?) fudllthi and their refining (?) influences. Hah! Meet with Home on jsilltlcal grounel alone, and she will last you every time, for ways that are dark and for tricks tha, are vain, the heathen Chlne Is simply nowhere as com pared to the jugglers of Home; but meet with her on scripture grounds, and demand that she bring her creed and her teaching and practice tip to the standard, the best modern scholar ship has secured us and she cannot stand. 1ctamanllft hi voice against her teaching and her practice In religion, and yon will hear lie.r howl. Witness the Incident In tho Y. P. H. 0.

Imdeavoivra, and the commendations they received f"om our Protestant (?) papers for so promptly and openly dis avowing any responsibility for the ien fortunate utterance. Why can she not Is'ar to have her true character ex IKised? F.cho answers why! Watcher.
