One of our friends down in Ne York
says: "We (the A. P. A.) arranged
yesterday for the absolute prohlbitioa

Tammany, the most iniquitious polltl
cat organization that ever disgraced
American politics; we defeated Hill,
who stood for un-American sentiments.
What more do you want?"
Some ot our Irish Catholio friends in
Omaha threaten to go straightway into
the Republican party, because the
Democrats have failed to provide office
for them. Archbishop Ireland advised
them to divide up long ago. It is doubt
ful if this change of front will be effeC'
tive. The Protestant people have found
out that Roman Catholics will vote only
ior itoman uatnoncs or their tools, no
matter what party they are in. Eta
sides, under the primary election rules
in Omaha there are some conditions
precedent to becoming a voter in the
councils of the Republican party.
LAST wt ek we were away from the
city when the account of the election
was written up and published in The
American. By an oversight no men
tion was made of Beecher Higby'i
merited victory over Jack Evans for
the city clerkship. But Beech knows
how pleased we were, and his many
friends already know he got more votes
than all the other candidates together
so it is cot necessary for us to say very
much, except that his election was
distinctively A. P. A. victory, for his
opponent denied being a member of the
order and he admitted his connection
One thing must bo said of the Ro
man Catholic hierarchy. It is a busi
ness institution, and it's agents are
captains in the art of getting together
the sinews of political warfare. Truck
ling non-Catholic politicians who in
stinctively detest the history of Roman
ism, who know that it Is hostile to
liberty and a menace to the institutions
of America, know on which side their
bread is buttered. This is why there
is a junta of schemers in Douglas county,
recreant to their natural allegiance,
and yenally false to the principles of
free government. Fortunately their
number is limited and their power
iiht in the state of
Nebraska cor ceded. Ut week, the elec
tion of Silas A. Holcomb, as governor.
Among the few which did not, Thk
American may be numlwred. This
week it not only claims that Majors was
honestly and fairly elected; that he had
votes enough; but that a gigantic
schema was put In operation by bis r
onal enemies to steal the state and de
prive him of the honor the people had
so gladly bestowed upon him.
From every section of the state comes
proof of Irregularities, and downright
violation of the Australian ballot law.
Votes cat for Thomas J. Majors have
not been counted, and votes cast for blm
have been counted for the other fellow.
Flection lioards have been packed with
the tools of his enemies, and In some
eases they have utterly failed to comply
with the letter or the spirit of the elec
tion law. Hal lots have been taken from
the ballot boxes and placed In a judges
pocket, and afterwards brought out and
counted, while In one or more precincts
ballots which should have been counted
for Majors have been torn up des
troyed so that no trace of them can be
found. Besides these Instances of law
lessness and attempts at fraud, there
aro numerous instances whero the spirit
of the election law has been violated by
the use of money, and tho coercion of
voters through fear of loss of otllclal
But theso are not all the grounds on
which we have to base a claim that
Thomas J. Majors was lawfully and le
gally elected governor of Nebraska.
Every elector who knows anything at
all about the state knows that thousands
of voters have left the "sand hills," yet
the returns from that section, on their
face, Indicate as many votes in that
section this year as there wore one year
ago. This is either an error or a gigan
tic attempt to steal the state from the
Republicans. If It Is a mistake Mr.
Holcomb and his friends should be wil
ling and anxious to have it rectified,
but If It Is a trick of unprincipled and
unscrupulous political mountebanks,
every Individual connecieu wun u
hould be prosecuted and punished to
tho full extent of the law.
And Mr. Majors has a duty to per
form. It Is not to allow this election to
go uncontested, lie owes li to nis
friends and to the Republican party to
demand his rights. He owes It to his
political enemies to show them that an
honest expression of public opinion at
the ballo box is sacred, but that a dis
pones; or a fraudulent expression will
be opposed and unmasked regardless of
time, cost or convenience. This is
what his friends expect of him. This
is what the 97,000 voters of Nebraska
the second lartrest vote that was ever
cast for a single candidate for gov
ernor who said by their votes that ho
was their choice, this Is what they ex-
pect him to do, and unless we are mis
taken in him that is what he will do.
Majors was elected. Ho was elected
In spite of tho damnable warfare of the
Omaha Ike, in spite of fusion, in spite
of the solid Roman Catholic vote, and
In spite of glaring frauds and unneces-
sary 11 not intentional misiaKes, ana
every one of his friends who knows of
any irregularity being practiced in any
precinct should forward Information of
the same to this office wl hout delay.
If Thos. J. Majors will stand for his
rights and tho rights of the Republican
party and the Protestant wing of the
Democratic party, we shall lend him
all the help we can, and we expect
Americans everywhere to back up this
attempt to secure a fair count of the
vote cast at the last election. What do
you know about your precinct?
THE LABOR QUESTION AND THE
A. P. A.
The last lecture delivered by Prof,
David Swing, of Chicago, was on the
subject of the great railway strikes of
the past summer. He was regarded by
many as one of the most conservative
and at the same time one of the wisest
and most penetrating of men. He
poke from the scene of the terrible
conflict where men were maimed and
killed and where millions upon mil
lions of dollars worth of property
were destroyed. During the course of
his remarks he said: "Not since 1860
has the 6ky been so dark as it is today
What saved the country from a great
calamity last July was the fact that the
school house, the church and the press
of the last fifty years, had quietly
created an intelligence large enough to
stand between the people and their
Prof. Swing is dead, and his memory
because of his works, is entitled to all
charity. He will be remembered for
his tenderness of feeling and his broad
humanity. These characteristics over
powered his judgment and led him to
wrong conclusions. The lecture from
which we quote took no account of the
element of Romanism in the great
strikes. He sought to solve the strained
condition of affairs by dwelling upon
the relations of capital and labor and
was apparently oblivious to the fact
that in the great social commotion
about which he was discoursing, the
chief element of deviltry was the Ro
man Catholic church, with its emis'
saries. The American does not claim
that all who participated in that strike
were Roman Catholics, but we assert
that theleaders.from President Eugene
V. Debs down were the tools of the Ro
man machine. The prueldcnWof nearly
II the subordinate lodge were Romans,
nd tho powers that manipulated the
trtke wei-e controlled by them just as
as been the case with most if not all
the strikes In America for many years
The American Protective Associa
tion, with It 4,000,000 sympathetic
oters would never have been poaeibie
if there had not existed grave and
thicatenlng evils from a violation of
one of the principles on which our gov
ernment is founded, namely, the com
plete separation of church and state.
Ivoman Catholic priests and editors
have sought by getting up feuds be-
ween capital and labor, to hold the
Votestant element of the working eo-
lo In lino with the plans of tbelr
church, when another policy Is not
thought more advantageous, and the
A. P. A. has even been accused by them
of iH'lng an instrument in the hands of
capital to discriminate against the
toilers of America. But this charge is
impotent. Tho laboring men of this
country have learned In countless
strikes that they cannot depend upon
the Roman Catholics to hold out. They
have been betrayed so often that they
have found the reason, and that Is why
the ranks of the A. P. A. arc made up of
the hard working sons of America
who believe that no solution to the
questions arising between capital and
labor can be effected so long as priests
can Darter and sou ana compromise,
1th both sides to a controversy. They
are men who love their country and
whose lives are ready to preserve it,
and they have united themselves to
gether In a patriotic organization
hich seeks to perpetuate American
Institutions and ultimately effect the
assimilation of all elements of our peo
ple. The A. P. A. loves justice and
would promote prosperity. It favors
economic progress and industrial re
form. It ho'ics that the day may come
when every American home will again
resound with the mirth and music of
plenty, and when good order and peace
shall abide in every neighborhood.
The sooner the Roman Catholics of
America realize that they must take
their church out of politics, and like
the patriotlo and courageous Catholic
Polanders, renounce the church gov
ernment where ever it conflicts with
American Interests, the sooner will
there be a united public sentiment to
correct the admitted evils of legislation.
So long as Roman Catholic leaders like
Debs entrap people into rebellion
against the federal government, and
bluntly advise their subordinates to pay
no attention to the injunctions of our
courts; so long as the enemies of all
government take advantage of labor
troubles to destroy property to the
value of millions of dollars, the cause of
Industrial progress is hampered.
It was the principles for which the
A. P. A. stands that prevented a great
revolution in 1894. Those principles
were endorsed by the voters of this
country on November 6th, partly be
cause of tho great railroad strikes of
NUNS CAN TEACH.
The supreme court of Pennsylvania
handed down a decision in the case of
John Hyson et al. vs. School District of
GalliUln borough et al. November 12.
The opinion was. delivered by Justice
Dean, part of which was as follows:
The bill was filed to restrain the
school directors of Gallitzin borough
from permitting sectarian teaching in
the common schools of the borough, and
from employing as teachers, sisters or
members of the order of St. Joseph, a
religious soclet of the Catholic church
As to the fact admitted that of teachers
six of them were sisters of a religious
order of the Catholic church, and
while teaching, wore the habit of their
order, the learned judge of the court
below says: "We conclude, as to this
branch of the case, that in the absence
of proof that religious sectarian instruc
tion was imparted by them during
school hours, or religious sectarian ex-
erclses engaged in, we cannot restrain
by injunction members of the order of
Sisters of St. Joseph from teaching in
the public schools in the garb of that
order, nor the school directors from em
ploying or permitting them to act In
that capacity." This legal conclusion
is reached after a very able and impar-
tial opinion, in which the facts are
reviewed and the law bearing on the
question very fully cited The opinion
is so convincing that it seems to us it
must compel the assent of the unpre
judiced mind, whether of layman or
lawyer. In thus expressing our full
accord with the learned president,
judge of the court below, we intimate
no opinion as to the wisdom or unwis
dom of the action of the school board in
electing six Catholic school teachers,
members of an exclusively religious
In the sixt years of existence of our
present school system, this is the first
time this court has been asked to de
cide, as a matter of law, that it Is see
tarian teaching for a devout woman to
appear in a school room In a new dress
peculiar to a religious organization of
a christian church. We decline to do
so; the law does not say so. After the
most careful consideration we see noth
iiig of merit lu any of the assignments
of error which have been so earnestly
pressed in the argument. The decree
is affirmed and apptal dismissed at
cosU of apiellanU.
Justice Williams banded down the
minority dissenting opinion.
NULLIFYING THE LAW.
During the lasi election, hundreds
of these cards were used in the city of
disabled voter's card.
I am a disabled Democratic voter, I
an neither read nor write English, I
eslre Mr , one of the
members of the Election Board, to
make out my ticket; and I want to vote
for following candidates:
'or Governor: Silas A. Holcomb,
For Lieut. Gov.: James N. Gaftin,
For Sec'y of State: Francis I. Ellick,
For Auditor: Jno. W. Wilson,
'or Treasurer: G. A. Luikart,
ForSupL Pub. Ins: Wm. A. Jones,
For Att'y Gan'l.: Daniel B. Carey,
For Com. Pub. Lands: Sidney J. Kent,
and the Democratic Congressional,
Senatorial, County, City and School
This suggests the necessity of a
hange In the Australian ballot law.
It shows that no man should be allowed
to vote who cannot read and write the
English language. Such a law is in
force In California. It would work
here. 1 Besides, the perpetuity of our
government depends upon the educa
tion of its citizens. An lgaorant voter
is a constant menace to our form of gov
ernment, and the sooner this is realized
tho better off will the country be.
DOUBTLESS AN ERROR.
Mrs. Waito, the wife of Colorado's
eccentric governor, In an interview last
Tuesday, abused most shamefully the
good women who went to the polls and
voted against the Populist party. She
wound up her talk with a bit of in
formation which is certainly an error,
as the Republican ticket was the A. P.
A. ticket. But this is what she said:
"Then I was disappointed in the
Catholic vote, for that went right
against us. I know it to be a fact that
only two or three days before the elec
tion Bishop Matz received a check for
$50,000 from Archbishops Ireland and
Corrlgan, with secret instructions to
innuence tho Catholio vote for the Re
publicans. They don't care anything
about what is going on here for they
live east and are controlled by Wall
street and the gold bugs."

It IS currently reported that Priest
John Jeannette has discontinued teach
ing the catechism in his church. It is
also currently reported that Hugh
Murphy sent one of his little children
to the priest to ask how children attend
ing the public schools were to receive
religious Instruction. The priest is
said to have patted the child on the
head as he told it he d.'d not know. Mr.
Murphy sends his children to the public
schools, and he believes this move is
made to force him to take them out
and send them to the sectarian school,
but he proposes to retaliate by with
drawing his support from the church,
until such time as the priest concludes
to teach the catechism to children at
tending the public schools. If this is
true he deserves n little praise. His
stand is not alone for the benefit of his
own children, but of those also of other
Roman Catholics, who cannot afford to
patronize a private school. It is more,
it is for the benefit of the country, for
it teaches his children that they are
independent of the priesthood. Mr.
Murphy is considered rich and quite
Influential, and it may be the priest
will hasten to remove the restrictions
so far as they relate to Murphy's child

On the state ticket, headed by Hon

story will be told as briefly as possible
The Democratic candidates stood
upon a platform denouncing the A. P,
A., while the Republicans and Popu
lism said nothing that was unfriendly
to the order, either in their platform
or on the stump. The A. P. A., there
fore, did nothing more than work for
the defeat of the Democratic ticket.
This they did. , The Republicans came
in first, Populists second, and Demo-
rats a miserable third. O, what a de-
eat It was. This poor Rome-ridden
Hlitical machine did not receive half
the votes polled by the Populists.

"Further innovations in the direction
of Romanism have been introduced Into
this church (Christ Church, Doncaster).
Recenty a shrine with a painting of the
Madonna and child and lights was
placed on the south-side of the chancel
entrance, and within the last week an
Image of the virgin and child has been
substituted for the picture, which has
been hung against one of the pillars on
the north side. As if this were not
enough the vicar has introduced a cou
ple of confessional boxes, one on the
north and the other on the south side,
and near the west entrance there are
two vats for so-called holy water. The
harvest festival was held on Thursday
night, when there was evensong with
procession and solemn 1 e Deum, The
preacher was the Rev. Battersby Prest-
wich.of Whitakerlane. I he decorations
were chaste and beautiful, but not ex
tensive. The collection amounting to
over 4 was on behalf of the steeple
and boiler fund. On Sunday the
preachers invariably spoke of holy com
munion as 'holy mass,' and the refor
