Expressed by Journalists Upon tho
Sutyect of President Traynor's
The OmtiH'rrUI Bolinc That Mr. Tray
nor in I tuluitnit More Than IWIonts
to the Orj:anuatln The ltw
Credit llif ( lalni.
The Tolodo (O.) Commercial, com
nu'Dtlnjj upon the letter promulgated
by V. J. II. Tray nor lat wock with
reference to tho late elections, :
"A more obmird claim than that of
Mr. W. J. II. Traynor, of Detroit, tho
national president of the A. V. A., has
not heen mado. He claims that the
preat llepubllean victory was duo to
A. 1. A. Thb claim In the face of the
well known fuel become ridiculous.
We believe that Mr. Traynor, or ome
other ollloer of IhU association, two
year ago, claimed that the election of
Grover Cleveland wan aim) a great A.
I A. victory.
'It la a fact that tho election of G rover
Cleveland two years ajjo was In a meas
ure duo to A. 1 A. Influence, adversely
exerted. In Illinois, Iowa, Indiana and
several other western states tho A. P.
A., then In the zenith of its power,
fastened itself iion the ltcnubllcan or
ganlzatlons, and as a result the people
bolted and went to tho Democracy.
ThU year the campaign was fought out
on straight Krpubllcan principles and
henoo Ilcpubllcan success. In Ohio
and every other state the record is un
broken. A. 1 A. candidates on the
Republican ticket ran behind all tho
others. This tells the whole story and
it is a story directly the opposite to
that which tho vociferous Traynor
Tho editor of tho Commercial who
writes so confidently In his ignorance
should also read. Not to kill space and
multiply Instances if A. P. A. candi
dates ran away behind their tickets, as
the Commmi'ul man would have the
people bollovo, will he condescend to
explain why Congressman Linton was
elected by almost a plurality of 7,000,
. eays President Traynor's Patriotic
American, and Crump, knifed by the
machine Republican ring, ran up a plu
rality of 4,000 'almost entirely with A.
P. A. votes. It might be Inserted here
that tho great Republican clubs
through out the land ordered the politi
cal assassination of every A. P. A. can
didate whom they could not tie hand
and foot to machine rule. A. P. A. can
didates were elected chiefly by A. P.
A. votes and have nothing to thank the
Republican or any party for. Such
sheets as the Ommem'dl which own
everything in sight and possesses a
first mortgage upon eternity, may find
their party before next election with
paper claim and a worthless mortgage.
Tho Toledo kt, commenting upon
the same official document, says;
"We aro disposed to believe there Is
much truth In what the national presi
dent of the A. p, A. says about the
strength of that organization In the
late election. No one can deny that in
the past few years there has been a
marked revival of Knownothlnglsm and
that the A. P. A. has gained practical
control of the Republican party In many
sections of the country. While the
general public cannot tell whether this
candidate or that is a member of the A.
P. A., the members of that organiza
tion know and are secretly Informed,
and President Traynor Is in poslMon to
know whereof he talks. And there Is
nothing surprising in his statement
that every man on the state ticket In
Michigan is a so-called American,
moaning an A. P. A., and that eight of
the twelve congressmen and over fifty
per cent, of the members of the legisla
ture are active membeis. Detroit has
been a hot-bed of the revived Know
nothlnglsm and its strength has spread
to every part of the s'ate. Although
he does not refer to Ohio It is true just
the same that the Republican organ
ization In this state Is dominated by the
A. P. A. influence. Nearly every
county and state convention held under
the name of the Republican party has
been controlled by the A. P. A., and
men were nominated on their merits
as members of this prescriptive organ
ization rather than because of their fi
delity to the principles of the Republi
can party.
"There will be,undoubtedly,a marked
A. P. A. strength in the next congress,
and all Indications now point to a con
dition oi affilrs in 1SS6 much like the
situation In 1856, when the Knownoth
I ng wing of the Whig party formed an
American party and nominated Fill
more for president The Whig con
vention, In the fall of the same year,
indorsed the Knownothlng nominees,
and what is now the Republican party,
then for the first time nominated a can
didate for president In the person of
John C. Fremont.
"A similar break up of parties may
take place in 1896. President Tray
nor's claims show that the A. P. A.
movement Is even stronger in 1894 than
the same movement, unler another
name, was in 1854. It will gain con
fidence from this show of strength and
""ill cliLor ulcUiLe the platform of the
Republican party In 18)6, or, failing in
thli", branch rut on a platform of its
own. The result of the break in 11
was that the Democrats swept the coun
try and elected Ituchanan on a platform
that exprrwed cpiKwItion to the native
American and declared 'that the rev
enue to be raided should not exceed the
actual n'eecary expenses of the gov
ernment, and for the gradual extinc
tion of the public debt.'
''Ono of the declarations of the Amer
ican or Knownothlng party was that
'Americans must rule America, and to
this end, native lorn citUent should be
selected for all state, federal aud muni
cipal offices or government employment
In preference to all others. ' Tho move
ment grew originally out of an antag
onism toward aliens and was agitated
back In the forties. It became a secret
organization about K"2 and adopted
the secret methods now employed by
tho A. P. A. Antlathy towards Ro
man Catholicism and opposition to for-olgn-lorn
citizens was the basis of the
action then as it Is now. Vet notwith
standing this fuct, there is a large
German Lutheran clement in tho A.
P. A. now, and much of its success is
duo to their active supjort.
"it Is Interesting to note in this con
nection that at this time when many
German-born American citizens are
lending aid and encouragement to the
antl-alion, anti-Roman Catholic move
ment, the emperor of Germany has ap
K)lnted a Roman Catholic to be the
successor of Biemark and Caprivi, Pro
testants, and that the new minister of
justice, Schocnstrcdt, is also a Roman
"I!o that as It may, there Is much
reason for President Traynor to claim
that the victory of November 0, 1894,
was to a great extent a victory for the
A. P. A. Whether It will ultimately
swamp tho Republican party remains
for tho future to reveal, and we place
the date of the revelation no farther oil
than 1896. The questions that gave
birth to tho Republican party have
been settled. Slavery is abolished and
there never will bo a return to high
protection. Thero is nothing to In
spire aggressiveness In Republicans
unless it bo a revival of tho Knownoth
lng policy. That can never bo per
manently successful. On tho other
hand the principles of tho Democratic
party still require aggressive fighting;
tho rights of the people; the proper
construction of the constitution, re
ligious, civil and commercial liberty
need a champion. That is the work of
the Democratic party."
The Burlington's New Short Line.
The Burlington Route is a notable
exception to the general run of western
During a period when railroad build
ing in this country has b.en almost at
a standstill, It has been steadily push
ing forward Its northwest extension
and now takes much pleasure in an
nouncing Its completion to Billings,
Mont., 893 miles from Omaha.
At Billings connection is made with
the Northern Pacific Railroad, and,
under a trafllo agreement with that
company, business of all classes Is ex
changed there, or more properly speak
ing, routed through that point to and
from every station on or reached via
the Northern Paclflo and Burlington
This New Short Line for that Is
exactly what it is-reducesthedistance
between Omaha, Kansas City, St. Louis
and the territory south and southeast
of those cities on the one hand, and
Montana, Northern Idaho and Puget
Sound points on the other, all the way
from 50 to 473 miles. It thus becomes
an Important factor in bringing the
vast scope of country served by the
North rn Pacific Into closer relation
ship with the Missouri and Mississippi
Just to Illustrate things: The New
Short Line eaves
294 miles between Omaha and Helena,
224 miles between Omaha and Butte,
371 miles between Om. and Spokane,
54 miles between Om. and Tacoma,
49 miles between Omaha and Seattle.
The New Line has been constructed
In a most substantial manner. Excel
lently ballasted, laid with the heaviest
steel upon more than the usual number
of ties, it equals the best and oldest
portions of the Burlington System.
People whose opinion is worth hav
ing, pronounced it superior to any new
track ever built In the western states.
The train-service will consist of Pull
man Palace Sleeping Cars, Reclining
Chair Cars (seats free), and Standard
Burlington Route Day Couches, Omaha
and Lincoln to Billings dally.

He IMhfi-1 Three Intrretlng Lectures
in Duluth.
DcLUTH, Minn.. Nov. 27. Father
Slattery, ex priest, gave three very In
teresting lecture on "Romanism and
her Priesthood." On the first evening
be was greeted by l.OoO persons; the
second, to men only, by nearly 2,000,
and the third by 1,500.
Before the sjieaker had uttered a
score of words on the first night a man
by the name of O'Brien undertook to
create a disturbance. Mr. Slaltery an
nounced his subject and stated that he
was an Irishman. The Intruder yelled,
"Wat county are ycz from?" A papist
jjollceroan was near, but made no at
tempt to stop further lniultlng remarks
from the ignoramus. Finally Mr.
Slattery called the attention of other
officers who wore not controlled by
Rome and Mr. O'Brien was carried out
bodily, although he begged to be al
lowed to stay. During this lecture
Rome's moral theology received a good
roasting. He said it should be named
immoral theology, and that if trans
lated Into English the party circulating
it would bo arrested for distributing
obscene literature. He said if ever
there was a "tainted" body of men they
were the American priests. As a proof
of this he told how his bishop in Ire
land refused to allow Irish priests to
come to America for fear of being cor
rupted by being brought in contact
with American priests.
On tho second night there was no
disturbance whatever. This lecturo
was ono of tho most complete exposures
of Romo's vlleness that has ever been
delivered to an American audience.
And the immense audience cheoredthe
t peaker to the echo. The confcbsional
and the priest's duties before marriage
ceremonies were dealt upon at length.
As a lecturer, considering his subject,
Mr. Slattery ii a perfect gentleman.
He made many friends In Duluth, and
will not be soon torgotten. He roasts
nobody but the guilty priests, and they
deserve it. Although the News-l'
does not acknowledge he accomplished
his object, It says: "Mr. Slattery Is a
good talker, an exceedingly clever
story-teller, and keeps his audience in
good humor' The Evening Llerald
says "his lecture was at least listened
to with interest by those who attended."
There la no doubt that should Mr.
Slattery see fit to again visit Duluth
he will receive a very cordial reception.
His gentlemanly ways have made him
a great favorite. When the public
press admits an anti-papal lecturer is a
gentleman It can be tak n as a fact he
is one. And this is the case with Mr.
Slattery. Zenith.
School Books.
There was a great effort made to
unify the text book system of our
schools and have it done by one con
solidation. As sjon as this was sug
gested I was Sire the hand of the Jesuit
was In it. The good moral, not Roman,
tone of the old books was too much for
them and with every change of books
thero could be added more that would
favor the Roman Catholic church, "the
mother of ull churches. "(?)
I picked up a book a few days ago. It
was a reader: The first thing I read
in the consolidated, unified, Romanized
system, was tho following favorable
notes: "Jollet (Jolea) and Marquette
were French priests who devoted their
lives to the conversion of the Indians."
"A Jesuit is a member of the well
known Society of Jesus. Friars, mean
ing brothers, is the name given to the
members of certain mendicant orders
of the Roman Catholic church."
This book la published by A. S.
Barnes & Co. While it is excellent in
many respects It has the ear marks of
the Jesuits. Why are the Jesuits well
known? Because they have been "fired
out" of nearly every civilized country
on the face of the earth. But the
young reader would not infer that from
the definition. The friars are brothers,
therefore they must be good fellows.
Besides this, there are some who are
trying to simplify the spelling of our
words and have worked hard to reduce
the spelling to a system. Then we
have the French pries who come
here and have a hand in compiling our
readers and they mark as the pro
nunciation of Joliet, Jolea. If the char
acter of a nation can be read by its lan
guage, deliver me from any such Ro
man Catholic French pronunciations.
When these priests have a Jolea time
they go to Joiiet, where the thing is
pronounced correctly; the place where
many well-known Jesuits would bo, if
oertain deeds could bo traced; deeds
which their church would honor, tut
which a man with some sense of justice
would condemn.
In these readers we see little now of
the father of our country, or why the
people left the old Roman ship in the
old country. We see little of the presi
dent who was killed by a man of the
faith of the well-known Jesuits, and
protected by those of the faith of the
well-known Jesuits. It says little of
the president who was killed by a man
whose last days were spent with a man
who had at one time been a priest and
said of him (Guiteau) "he was wiser
than the world gave him credit for."
A well-known Jesuit would have con
sidered him very wise. But if these
things were taken out of the reader and
national history compiled that would
be interesting, instructive and which
represented the true cue for the suc
cces of this government, the Jolea
priests would cry treaa.
Do not let the Jesuit run the reader,
run them out of town fi -st.

Have Nothing to Fear From the A. I A.
'SearthLIgut,, if They are Loyal.
Skdalia, Ma., Nov. 23. From the
Eittti-prLte-tkuliml of this city the fol
lowing article is taken. It illustrates
how the election was carried for Amer
ican principles in Pettis county by
reasoning and thinking. The - writer
In reply to a query states, J
"it Is a fact though, all 'the same,
that the A. P. A. organization has "a
name and a local organization " i In
every state in the union, or nearly so,
If we are to believe the-newspaper re
ports. It has come to supply a demand
of this age. The result of which will
be to cause the people to search out
the real caus.e, If any, that a-e said
to be operating or gnawing at the very
vitals of our republican institutions
through the influence of the Roman
Catholic church. The Catholic church
and its priesthood have nothing to fear
from the "search-light" of the A. P. A.
if it is a loyal American Institution.
Honest people do not, if right-minded,
object to having their acts and systems
of principles investigated and pre
sented to public scrutiny. If there is a
secret underground system of opera
tions being carried on by that or any
other church with the object and pur
pose to control the elections in such a
manner as to secure all the offices to
members ot that church, then 'it ought
to be known. If honesty in religious
and political matters is tho purpose of
all, no harm can come of the investiga
tion. The A. P. A. is an organization
for investigation along a line that no
one yet worked. No single organiza
tion can right all the wrongs and re
move the causes of those wrongs, hence
we have the organisations for looking
after the financial wrongs and their
causes, etc., every department of wrong
doing demands an organization of the
citizens to investigate, and If possible,
ascertain the causes and suggest a
remedy, and it is then for all the peo
ple, after having learned these "evils,"
to give the remedy at the polls by cast
ing a ballot that has an intelligent
brain and hand to guide it. Lay down
your prejudices r gainst the A. P. A.
and that in favor of "Rome" or the Ro
man Catholic church until you learn
the true character and feeling of that
church toward our free institutions and
the objects and aims of the A. P. A.,
and Its system of religio-political hie
rarchy. It is not best to condemn men
and measures before we understand
them. We believe in free speech and
free thought and are very slow to act.
Our emotions do not cut much figure
in any case of a religious or political
nature flambeau clubs, drums, brass
bands and blue or red lights have but
little Impression uoon us. We try to
be guided by the principles of eternal
being that underly the existence of
things. Now, brother, do not kick
against the pricks, just be still and let
the "scale V of prejudice "fall from
your eyes,' and then you will be better
prepared to decide how to vote, for
the 'blind impulses' will then have
been removed and you can see things
as 'never before.' Ahl brother, it de
pends very much upon what a thing is,
whether you 'keep your eye upon it to
make it your leader and guide.' We
do not believe you 'keep your eye' upon
John Sherman and Grover Cleveland
for any such purpose. We do not be
lieve you 'keep your eye' on the waich
dog you meet, in the door yard of your
neighbor, to make him your 'leader
and guide.' Oh! no, not by any means;
it is for an entirely different purpose.' "
Motes From Sweet Springs, Mo.
Sweet Springs, Mo., Nov. 27, 1894.
Editor The American: As you have
no correspondent from our town, I will
write a few lines for your loyal paper.
Since Nov. 6th, we feel that we have
had quite a pleasant change. We had
been living in a Democratic state so
long that it does not seem natural to
be in a Republican state.
Our township officers are all Repub
licans, elected by fifty majority. The
county went Democratic, but our state
is all right. We feel that our victory
is to a great extent due to the unceas
ing efforts of the true Americans, the
A. P. As., and your loyal paper.
We had a nice ratification here the
15th. Two brass bands marched and
played, followed by a procession of loyal
citizens carrying banners bearing true,
sentimental mottoes. The enthusias
tic cheers of old and young showed that
our people are alive to our American
After the parade the crowd proceeded
to the hall where they listened to some
good speaking. Mr. Tracy, our con
gressman elect, Mr. Bothwell, state
representative Mr. Bob Miller and
Mr. Tom Andrews, two of our loyal
townsmen, delivered short speeches
which were full of wit, humor and true
They impressed the audience with
the thought that it was not the victory
over the Democratic party for which
we rejoiced, but because our nation had
been saved from the hands of Rome,
and that Republicans and true Demo
crats will stand by our nation's inter-

ests and defend the old flag. Good
order prevailed. No manifestations of
boasting, but feelings of sublime thank
fulness were expressed by the speakers
who were often heartily applauded.
After three long, loudcheeis, the meet
ing was brought to a close. Accept my
best wishes for your loyal paper, with
love for all true Americans,

A KoouMtant Priest Goes to Washington
for an Interview.
Cleveland, Ohio, Nov. 21. Rev.
Father A. F. Kolaszewskl, who was
excommunicated from the Catholic
church, as a result of the Polish church
war in this city, has gone to Washing
ton. It is said that his mission there
is to have an interview with Monsig
nore Satolli, and possibly seek rein
statement in the Roman church. Ko
laszewskl, as a result of the church
war, organized what is known as the
American Catholic church, and is one
of the very few of that denomination in
this country. Since its organization
the new church has steadily grown,
and now has a larjre congregation.
