lteciiuse tin mo aliens, through the
dastardly trickery of scheming and
utincrupuloiiH politicians, have had
placed In thoir hands tho greatest safe
guard which It was (himmIIiIo for our
forefathers to throw around our liber

Iters of congress, desirous of succeeding
thoniHclves, are so cowardly that they

en net a law which would deprive those
aliens of tho right of suffrage, Itocauao
If they did try, and failed, it would be
used as a club against them In succeed
ing campaigns.
To overcome this evil It Is necossary
for the people lo elect men whoso love
of country is greater than their deslro
to bo returned to congress. Men whose
honesty of purpose, whoso loyalty to
tho Interests of their country, and
whoso Individual opinions are subordi

done, until party and tho spoils ay stem

vow as you talk, hnow what your
congressman will do don't guess,
HUhop Boannol has stirred up con
slderable trouble among the 1 toman
Catholic Poles, Pobemlans, Italians
and (ionium of this city, owing to the
course ho has decided on adopting in
regard to discontinuing all parochial
school especially maintained at pres
ent for these nationalities, and compel
them to send their children to what
are generally recognized a tho Irish
Homan Catholic parochial schools,
Tho bishop maintains that the funds
at present available are not sufficient
to go around, that owing to tho action
of the American Protective Associa
tion, and other kindred patriotic
societies, there Is now no prospt-ct of
being able to filch any appropriations
for the support of their sectarian
schools from any source outside of their
own denomination. The nationalities
thus discriminated against by tho
bishop maintain that they have as
much right to have their schools main
tained as the Irish have, hence tho dis
satisfaction that is now rampant among
the members of that bishop's flock.
We would suggest to Hlsbop Bcannel
that the best method for him to pursue
would lm to abolish all the parochial
schools and order all tho members of
his church to send their children to the
public school where they will secure
an American education which is better
adapted for making good citizens of
them than the parochial school is.
It is safo to say that if all the con
vents in the United States were in
vestigated and opened to tho public
that there would tie found confined
within their walls hundreds of wretched
women detained against their will,
many of whom have been made to suf
fer unmentionable indignities at the
hands of a lecherous, celibate priest
hood. Ho many instances of the scan
dalous conduct of theHoman Catholic
tirlests towards female member of
their congregations have corno to light
recently and boon aired In the criminal
courts of thia country that go to prove
that tho treatment accorded to those

The diftleulty In emlmatieg lite in-
fine nee that Home has aotjuired arlw
from the r m-y m Ui whleh Home In
carrying on ber silltleal schemes,
though nothing can Is more Hoar than
the fact that negotiation have been
continuously parried on for years l-
tien the Human Catholic church and
the government of this country, who
for the sake of the Homlsh vote, con
stantly concede demand after demand.
Home's iucUkhI of working her way to
iotleal power is through the diitrt
medium of Homan Catholic representa
tive in isith houses In Washington and
by taking advantage of the general
indifference of tho country generally
towards ber aohomos, but times are
changing, Americans who have been
apparently psloop and indifferent to
the danger that menaces their country
aro now awakening and Home's politi
cal power In this country will shortly
bo materially curtailed, If wo do not
mistake tho signs of tho times.
The strikers in foreign lands aro
apjioallng to those In America for aid.
This Is about as pitiable a piece of rot
as has come Isjforo tho people for a
long tlmo. Tho country has boon
pauperized by foreign Immigration of
worthless people who do nothing but
instigate strikes and riots, do urease
our working men's wages to a degree
that It is lm possible for the American
laborer to live upon, and now they have
tho audacity to call upon the people
whom thoir class have robbed of dally
broad. They would even extort funds
from those who have scarcely a living,
and thoso who should shut tho gates at
the ports against those indiscriminate
agitators. It Is these discontented and
unworthy lot of foreigners who aro
promoting strikes In tho old country,
spend their little surplus in promoting
Idleness1 then ship themselves to tho
United States in a pauperized condi
tion, and go to work lo this country at
a rate far bulo our class of working
men, thereby undermining tho Ameri
can and reducing wages in general.
After this foreign refuso bus lalsired
long enough to hayo a few dollars in
Its purse, the result Is a clamor, months
of idleness, factories closed, and all
told a strike. This foreign clement is
tho sum total of our hard times and the
turmoil of this country. Instead of
sending money out of tho land to assist
this detrimental class, the people
should shut off all further immigration,
and allow tho people in this country
time to become citizens, as at least one
fifth (or more) of tho present population
are not citizens, and at tho same tlmo
allow the Industries to grow up to tho
demand of our own laboring people and
citizens who now inhabit the country.
Tub park commissioners of this city
have gone to, a good deal of trouble and
expense in beautifying (lanseom Park
by placing costly flowers In the Wis,
for the benefit of tho public and not for
tho personal uo of any single Individ
uat. It has Win rcortc p us that
last Sunday a certain would-be lawyer
of this city, driving round the park In
question, stopped his buggy in front of
ono of these bods containing plants In
full bloom, whllo his little boy Jumped
down and culled a big bouquet of them,
after which they drove away. It is
alleged that the man In the buggy, and
father of this little vandal, was no less
a jorson than T. W. lilaokburn, of this
city who not very long ago aspired to
the position of city attorney. If the
facts as alleged are true, tho proper
authorities should see to It that Mr,

A mkmiiku of tho American Protec
tive Association was living next door
neighbor to a Homan Catholic, They
had many conversation regarding the
order and the Homan church, which
led the pope' subject to request tho A
P. A. to read two W)ks written by
some of the Homan clergy. Ho did as
requested, and when be returned the
books he carried two antl-Homan pub
lications with him to the party, re
questing that they bo road. TbU re
quest was flatly refused by the pope's
subject, stating that it was against his
religion to read such stuff, and that it
would cause excommunication if con
fessed. And yet tho Homan Catholic
church says that it teaches enlighten
ment Would you think so by this?
As Home was, so she will ever lie; the
promoter of a despicable ignorance.

In the outcome,
What was It that Captain Mostyn
whispered in the ear of tho notorious
rook and confidence man Connor, who
had been arrested and was being
paraded before tho police at the slut Ion,
so that they would know hi in again?
Whatever it was, this crtstk, "wanted"
almost every state of tho union,
managed to quietly walk out and em iim
from tho police court yesterday morn

unknown reason Captain Mostyn and
Kergeant Whalen connived at his
Hkv. Wavi.anu Hovt, of Minneap

national anniversary meeting held at
Saratoga Springs, N. Y., said; "Tho
Protestant world owes an immense debt
of gratitude to tho American Protective
Association for calling tho attention of
tho world to tho encroachments of tho
Homan Catholic church." That this
was tho sentiment of tbos) present was
evident from tho burst of applause that
grouted tho speaker's remarks.
Wll V does not Chief Heavey patronize
tho merchants of this city when pur
chasing equipment for tho force, The
citizens of this city have to pay for the
maintenance of tho police department,
and it certainly seems only reasonable
that they should have the benefit of
money expended for that department;
and what right bus Beavoy to charge
tho men more than tho goods actually
cost, as it is alleged by them ho does.
Wk still maintain that tne attack
made by the Jke on tho Thurston Hides
was purely a dirty piece of mullclous

Hunt's evidence before tho fire and

clusion that tho position we took was a
correct one and that the facts did not
warrant tho "write up,"

On Humlay tvening, May ?tih, tho
lirand tiper honf ws Mled with our
Ut cliUen to hear the Memorial nor
men by Hov, A. W, Hnlder. Aftr
some etocllenl imislo by the t'boinl
Union, the reverend gentleman was In
tmduitod and ske In his usual fore I bio
and practical manner, from w hlch the
following extract Is lki n:
I tin vi. f.iiiKht A Risk) fight.-- Ton., 4.T.
These word are not especially ap
plicable to myself, not having W-n a
soldier, but the only reason being thnt
I was too young. Tho flag which now
dcks this pulpit causes me again to
wish I had lHcn older, Hut these
words of patriotic sentiment aro from
tho lips of Paul. They auperbly sum
marize tho life of a Christian soldier.
Paul means that ho was loyal and ag
gressive in maintaining and advancing,
Christ's cause. Ho was not egotistical
but worthy of the trlbuto, Wo today
sanction bis claim and and re-echo the
plaudit. II rot her Paul, thou hast
fought a good tight, and it shall tie a
memorial of thoo through tho coming
Next to tho soldier of Christianity
stands tho soldier of nationality. It is
tho nemo of glory to have fought a good
fight for tho crots; but the next thing
in glory to have ionght a good fight for
our flag.
This service tonight was planned by
the veterans to commemorate, not what
they or any of us have done, not even
what tho commonweal movement, not
the present congress, whose doing
satlslles not, but tho national soldiers
and sailors, our heroes, who gallantly
fought and gloriously died to save our
flag, constitution and country, We
honor our fathers and brothers who
fought this good fight for union and
liberty. Was theirs a good fight? 1
raise tho question not to impart in
formation, but to determine whether
tho wreaths wo weave for our heroes'
brow are worthy. Also that we, in
this day of social and moral warfare,
may be ablo to so conduct our battles
that our children can say their fathers
and mothers fought a good fight.
Tho war or the union was a good
fight becauso we recognized tho ethical
element in it. Wo recognized tho
hand of God leading us to battle. Tho
Hlblo was tho light to our faith, We
had not only brains behind our guns
and sabers, but a moral conviction of
right, that fired every shot. History
records many great warrior, as Ciesar,
Napoleon and Alexander, and magnifl
cent, historic bittles, as Thermopylo,
Marathanand Waterloo; but In neither
generals nor battle was tho ethical
element recognized as In our fight for
tho union.
Wo ni"st not forgot the brilliant and
devoted leaders such as Grant, Sbcr
man, Sheridan, and other, but there is
also a royal body of privates equally
deserving, uM well as the wives and
mothers, ho yielded up husbands and
sous for the nation's sake, Tho splon
dor of tho war is increased by tho fact
that It was largely by volunteer, Men
did not wait to bo drafted, but re
soon Jed to our nation' cull, and said
"Hero I am, send me," Tho fact Is 11
luminated when we remembtr that out
of a population of 2,',0o0,000 In the
north 2,Nru,l.'l2 enlisted during the four
yeftrs. And then how tho splendor is
enhanced when wo reflect sadly that wo
laid 2H'.),VM soldiers on the altar of
death for the nations good. Hut tho
imperial splendor bursts forth when wo
remember that it was patriotic fight
ing. Fatherland filled and thrilled
their hearts as they fought and sang
"My country 'tis of thi,
I, Kll (I Of tllS nolllw f Mill.
Thy nam I lovn."
Tho enlisting, the girding for battle,
and the struggle for victory were all
Inspired by love of country, Our
fathers loved home and family, but
recognizing tho band of God in tho na
tlon call, sacrificed homo comforts to
save the union.
It was not like In Ciesar and Napo
leon's time, aggressive, but a defensive
fight, because truth and right demanded
that we preserve our national domain
as bequeathed us, tho revolutionary
father. Wo fought Wsauso wo must,
and fight we did for we loved our land
It was forced upon the north to defend
our national life against an Infamous,
armed conspiracy from tho south,
The cause of tho war was not to del'
troy that wlckod, Inhuman system of
slavery, but to save tho union, to save
our borltago from our patriotic fathers,
a heritage born lo rightful revolution
and sealed in heroic blood. Ohlthat
such patriotism existed today In more
hearts to save tho nation aaln from
tho social and moral wars now upon
us, and to avert the threatening dis
solution from our internal rottenness.
The war was a good fight In achieve
ment. The boys In blue said, "Lotus

The union ne d protection. We are
waging moral and social warfare la
form just a serious a that of Ibe re
bellion, There are peril threatening
the very life of the nation) and the call
Is for volunWr. Tho doings of con
gress have failed to satisfy, and the
commonweal movement, tho outgrowth
Hslbly of lalsir troubles, threatens our
nation. There Is a chance for men t
show that they are true, patriotic
Americans Wu are all aware that
this land has become the dumping
ground for all other nations. Tho
foreign elements coming among us,
bisao too much of the law less and that
which opiHiscs our government. We
have booomo a heterogeneous mass of
population and ideas that will cause
our downfall, from Its weight of corrup
tion, if we do not arise as true patriots
and fight a good fight for our country.
Another battle for us to wage is
against tho liquor trulllc. Hero Is tho
enemy to our national good, stultifying
and corrupting body, mind and soul;
tho parasite sapping tho life from our
beloved republic, destroying property,
peace and happiness. Will we be pa
triotic enough to do our duty here?
Not only are the liquor and labor ques
tions troubling us, but many friends of
good government think they can see In
the air the cloud and hear the thunder
ing voice of an ecclesiastical power
threatening to rule this nation.
Friends, if wo do not want tho oppres
sion and fall of anotner Human empire
then let us bo truo Americans and for
ever keep church und state separate,
and preserve our public schools from
their enemies. We all recognize that
lawlessness Is very great, and Is it not
being imported? True American Ism
requires that whoever set his foot on
our shores shall bo surrounded by our
flag and cuusid to declare himself a
truo American,
Hut these social and moral wars aro
upon us. nave wo patriotism enougn
to believe it and fight a good fight to
preserve the union and liberty won for
us by our fathers? This will be honor
ing God, and our best trlbuto to our
