this ring nlgnitlo the union of Jesus

high compliment to our public, schools:
'The state has every reason to exercise

for having surmount d so many ob

Since the A, P. A. has found some

as begun to howl; acd may the Amer

the Roman Catholic church is
placed in its proper seat. Everyone
should be thankful that the Americans
about Washington have begun to sbow
that thej are unwilling to allow a class
of people to run them, who ar not and
will not become true Americans. I

Romish power in the east, and now I
hope to see the speedy decrease of It.
Mr. Ireland, the suggestive name for
Roman Catholic bishop, says, in his
wise way, "I know the American peo

and I know they are broad enougn and
liberal enough to protect all Ameri

and you are one of the chaps they will
protect It from, and don't you forget It.
You are one of the Johnle's with green
eyes, velvet paws and gum boots. Yes
sir, they will protect it.
The bishop Is howling because a so
ciety, as he says, "with the Bible In
one hand and the constitution of the
United States in the other," is causing
such a stir and threatening to turn the
present state of things upside down.

it the statement of Ireland of the north,
who says that it is but a vapor that
will soon pass away.
