An unusual state of affairs exists In
New Mexico, a majority of the people
there being under the Influence largely
of Jesuit priests. In order to Ameri
canize them (as In many of their schools
they teach Spanish only) a suggestion
was made that the English language
ahould be taught as one of the branches
In their schools. An amendment to
this effect was offered requiring a pro
vision to be placed In the constitution
Of the Incoming state as follows: "and
In all of which public schools the Eng
lish language shall be taught, as a
branch of study, but not to the exclus
ion of other languages." The people
of thia country will be astounded to
know that an American congress de
eated this proposition, although dona
ting millions of acres of public lands to
be used for school purposes, the pro
ceeds of which may be used for teach
ing where the nation's language is un
known. The circulation In your neighborhood
of above matter will furnish conclusive
proof, which cannot be controverted,
that organization must be maintained
to combat certain sectarian connections
with the state, and will show how your
oongressn en voted on these Important
American questions. The speeches and
congressional proceedings referred to
are folded, enclosed in envelopes, and
franked without extra cost, so that,
being public documents, they can each
be addressed, and mailed by you broad
cast without postage expense.
The postage itself under other cir
cumstances, would cost you $10 per 1000
copies. While the envelopes alone
(furnished by the government, printed)
are worth about as much as is charged
for the entire matter. All this ex
pense Is saved, churches, lodges, coun
cils, and organizations should order
them by the thousand, and patriotic
persons everywhere should take advan
tage of this opportunity, and form clubs
of say ten members, where deemed ad
visable, so that for 25c, 15c, or 5c each,
they can have 100, 50, or 10 of these
documents, and disseminate this matter
through the mails among their friends
for the facts and Information it eon
tains with which the American people
have not heretofore been familiar, and
which apparently, on account of cer
tain Influence, has not become public
through the press In any such manner
as its importance warrants. It is al
most incredible but nevertheless a fact,
that our "American" congress voted
down an amendment providing for
teaching the English language as one
of the Btudies, in the public schools of
New Mexico. Please address all orders
or further communications relating to
this subject to General Green Clay
Smith, P. O. Box 333, Washington, D.

Until such a stand Is taken there can
be no hope for a cessation of political

American citizens realize this the sooner

AN RANGE EE KEFICIARY.
By the action of the last session of
the Supreme Grand Orange Lodge of
the United States, at Boston, the
brethren of the Orange Order have
now a mutual aid association through
which they are enabled to avail them
selves of a cheap and equitable In
surance for the benefit of their families
upon their death. This department is
known aa the Loyal Orange Mutual
Aid Association, which has been duly
Incorporated under the laws of the
state of Minnesota. This association
was formed with the one predominant
Idea of strengthening the Loyal Orange
Institution and its benefits can only be
enjoyed by its members who are In
good standing. Good health being a
requisite for membership In the Orange
Order tt la not necessary for members
to go to the expense of a medical exam
ination and the liabilities are so graded
as to fully offset any omission this may
have on the death rate of Its certificate
holders. The benefits under all certifi
cates are graduated as follows:
For death during the first three
months oof allle certificate, U0O.00;
for the second three months, 1250.00;
for the next six umonths following,
600.00; for the Becond year, $600,00;
for the third year, $700.00; for the
fourth year, $800.00; for the fifth year,
$900.00.t After the fifth' year the bene
fit will be $1,000, the Bum stated in the
face of the certificate.
The assessments are made quarterly
and range from $2.00 for persons be
tween the ages of 21 and 27; for mem
bers aged 28 to 32 years, $2.15; 33 to 36,
$2 25; 37 to 40, $2.40; 41 to 44, $2 55. 45
to 47, $2.90; 48 to 50, $3. 20; 51 to 52,
$3.25; 53 to 54, $3.40: 55, $3.50 and so
on to 60 years at $4.55 per quarter.
These assessments Include the total
expense of maintaining the department,
and every member is the absolute
owner of his certificate and controls its
disposition. All benefits received by
the beneficiary under these certificates
are exempt from the payment of debts
of a deceased member and are paid
direct to the beneficiary whose Interest
is protected by law.
The fee required for membership Is
$2.50, and the assessment according to
age must be paid before the expiration
af three months. Application must be
made on blanks of the Association
which may be had by applying to M.
L. Zook at the office of the American
Publishing Company who is the
State Organizer for Nebraska, Iowa,
Missouri, Kansas, Colorado and Wy
oming, to whom all lodges within this
territory should apply for supplies.
Correspondence is Invited from all
members of the Orange Order.
Everybody wants to read "Fifty
Years in the Church of Rome." The
American Publishing Company is the
only place this excellent book can be
Samples of the American Vitizen Lib
rary may be seen at this office. The
price Is $2.00 a year, for 12 numbers

exists today aa an order of speculative me
chanic, recognising every one possesM'd of
the birth requirement, who works for a
malntalnance either by hand or brain or
both aa eligible to nieiiiU-mulp, and nuruberi
among It member men of every pn.frw.lou,
and calling lu life.
The object of this order are to assist each
ether In obtaining employment: to encourage
eai-b other In business; to establish a sick
and funeral fund; to establish a fund for
the relief of widow and orphan and to aid
member; and to aid member who. through
Providence, may be Incapacitated from fol
lowing their usual vocation. In obtaining
situations suitable to their affliction. The
memberKhip of this order is composed of
white male citizens born In the United
(Hates, or under the protection of Ita flag.
This order has existed for nearly fifty year,
and Is at present, rapidly spreading through
out the United State. As an American born,
and having the welfare of yourself and
family at heart, aa well as that of the nation
at large, we would moat heartily Invite you
to become a member of the U. A. M., as it Is
the only Order In existence founded es
pecially to promote the Interests, elevate
the character and secure the happiness of
the American mechanic and business man.
It therefore appeals to the head and heart
of hi in who wields the pen as well as to him
who swings the scythe or wields the sledge
hammer of the mechanic. In its councils, a
free discussion of principles relating to the
fostering and care of the interests of indi
vidual members Is permitted; but nothing of
a political or sectarian character is ever al
lowed to be discussed. It has no affiliation
with such Institutions as Trades Unions.
Knights or Labor, Sovereigns of Industry, or
the like, and desires not to control either
Capital or labor, a It would be doing a gross
injustice to many of its members, who are
taken from both classes. The membership
of the Order is scattered from Maine to Cali
fornia, and from all points co nes the glorious
news that the Order la gaining great strength
In all Jurisdiction.
An endowment branch la also connected
with the Order, both national and state,
which Insures those who seek ita benefits,
enabling them to leave a sum, which Is in all
cases substantially and promptly paid, to
the dear ones, when death marks lu mem
bers tor Its own.
It seems very strange Indeed that the
American does not feel Inclined to become
so peculiarly national In his Ideas and as
sociations aa do the English, French, Ger
man, Irish, and other nationalities. Each
and all of the foregoing have their peculiar
national organisations, and take pride in
same. But the American Joins order after

Still thou art my home."
Americans, we of this Brotherhood appeal
to you to aid us In this work we are now
carrying on. You must either be for us or
agalnstus. Choose quickly and let us show
to the country that we firmly believe In
American principles, American Industry,
American protection and American govern
ment. Strikes riots and boycotting are
terms too harsh to be applied to American
Mechanics. Bonded together by promptings
of patriotic affection, may this Order grow

himself American can stand up and say In

On behalf of the Loyal Orange Lodge of
the United States of America, and with a
view of correcting the false Impression that
enemies are endeavoring to convey to the
minds of men who are unacquainted with
Orange principles, are these few statement
The Loyal Orange Institution Is a brother
hood and sisterhood, bound by three ties-
Justice, Truth and Righteousness.
It has no hidden alms.
It la Fraternal and Benevolent assisting
and protecting member while living and
their widows and orphans when they are re
moved by death.
It upholds the right of private Judgment
the untrammelled freedom of opinion: be
lieves the public schools are an essential
safeguard of the state, and should be kept
free from ecclesiastical or sectarian control
and that persons disloyal to the government
who hold a mental allegiance to the pope
of Rome should be rigorously excluded from
It believes primary allegiance la due to
the government which protects the lives,
liberties and properties of Ita cltlsens, and
that ecclesiastical authority should aoV
under any circumstances, be permitted to
meddle in the affairs of state, and that coer
cion of a citizen In the exercise of bis or her
right of franchise, under the guise of relig
ious or spiritual authority should be pun
ished as a crime against the state.
That it Is the duty of every cltlien to de
fend the lawfully constituted authority and
Institutions of our country against corrupt
and Inimical influences, as well as against
armed assailants, to the end that our glori
ous freedom be protected and transmitted
unimpaired to posterity.
It encourage habits of frugality and in
dustry among lu members, and is proud to
boast that Orangemen seldom become a
public charge or accept pauper bread.
It believes In the restriction of Immigra
tion and the extension of time for the natur
alisation of cltlsens. and that the public
anda shall be held for actual American cltl
sens who become settlers.
The Loyal Orange lUBtltutlon of the
United States of America baa certain
requirements for membership:
That a man shall be an actual American
citlsen, having compiled with the lawsof the

That he shall be thrifty and successful In

That he will endeavor to give his children
or any children under his charge at least a
?oou common scnool education, oetng care
ul to avoid all popish doctrines, and
That he shall be In sound health at the
time of making application.
It makes no difference where a man was
born, so long as he meets the foregoln

DECLARATION OF PRINCIPMeS.
The National Council of the Junior Order
of United American Mechanics in annual
session assembled declares:
That the constant landlnii uuon the shores
of the hordes of Ignorant, vicious and lawless
criminals of the Old World should be viewed
with alarm by the loyal and patriotic cltl
sens of this country.
We amrm a warm ana nearty welcome to
all Immigrants who desire to better their
condit ion and become a part and parcel of
our nationality, hut we have not one square"
Inch of room for the anarchist, the socialist
or nihilist, or for any one who Is not willing to
bow allegiance to that flag which Is powerful
enough to shield and protect them as well as
us. in the exercise or an civil ana religious
We affirm our devotion to the public school
system of this country. We believe In com
pulsory education, and that all teaching In
our schools should be In the English lan
guage, to the end that future generations
may be able to take their place In the ranks
of our country's workers, educated In the
history, the customs and manners of Ameri
cans. We guarantee to everv man the liberty of
worshiping God according to the dictates of
his own conscience, and would elve everv as
sistance to protect all In the exercise oi his
liberty, but we object most strenuous to
the interference of any church, no matter
under what name It may exist, In the tem
poral affairs of this country.
vVe believe that the Bible should be read In
our public schools; not to teach sectarianism,
but to Inculcate Ita teachings. It is the
recognized standard of all moral and civil
law; we therefore believe, that our children
should be educated In It teachings, but that
no dogma or creed should be taught at the
We believe that patriotism and love of
country should be Instilled Into the hearts of
children, and that, with the words of
Mother," "Home" and '-Heaven." our chil
dren should be taught that our flag Is the
symbol of all that mtkes a "borne" for us.
We would place a flag upon every public
school In our land, and a Bible within, and
the object lesson therein set forth should be
a beacon light in every storm which threat
ens to engulf us.
In this noble and patriotic work we ask the
cordial and hearty co-operation of all good
citizens. In this grand work we need the
helping hand of all organizations holding the
same views and principles. We have no time
for Jealousies and bickerings, but with a
united front we should march forward,
shoulder to shoulder, remembering that
"United we stand, divided we fall."
In the strictest sense we are a national
polltl al organization, but we oppose with
unanimity the slightest taint of partisanlsm.
"Our country" Is our motto, and we keep
this motto steadily before us. We are cogni
sant that there are great and powerful
enemies within our midst, requiring the
strictest surveillance of all who are at heart,
word and In deed Amtricant. We. as members
of this Order, affirm our allegiance to the
objects of the Order as paramount to any
partisan affiliation, and urge upon the mem
bership harmonious, united and intelligent
action n carrying out the principles.
