One cam came under my observation in
the perron of Mrs. J. V. Watklna,
young- woman of only 22 year of age
She was converted to the liaptikt faith
and was baptised unto that faith lat
March. As loon an the had joined the
Haptist church the tyranny and perse
cution of the priest Father Gleaxon
and hia Ignorant followers bogan. There
is not now one IUiraanbt who will speak
to her hero, not even her mother or he
iUter. Some of the Catholics have
plan on foot to rotten egg her, but a
that time they will find that Mr. Wat
kins will have more friend than they
think sho has.
May Mrs. Watkins, who Is a young
woman of sterling ability, have th
prayers of the readers of THE Ameri

undertaken. Yours truly,

Stoned the A. P. A.
Concokd, Mass., Nov. 21, 18!(4
Hlstorlo Concord was the scene of an
A. P. A, riot with bullets and miss I log
last night. Not since the embattled
farmers "fired the shot heard around
the world" has this usually quiet town
seen so much excitement. More than
1200 members of the A. P. A., gathored
from Boston and vicinity, visited the
local lodge here, and were received by
the jeers and stones of a mob, replying
with bullets. Only the cool heads of
leaders of the A. P. A. prevented In
finite mischief and bloodshed. AW

The I. M. I.
In San Francisco, Portland, Ore
Denver, Omaha, St. Louis, Detroit,
Chicago and almost every large city in
the west, there are thousands of mem
bers of an organization which Is, as yet,
but little known In the eastern cities",
though they may be working more
secretly In the cast. It Is composod
exclusively of merahers of the Roman
Catholic church, and a candidate for
membership must proi'uce a certitlcate
from a priest showing that ho has been
to confession and taken communion
during the Inst 30 days preceding. A
Louisville paper prints the following:
"Ihe latost order of lay Jesuits is
the Y. M. I. Young Men's Instttut. 1
club, but in fact an armed military or
ganization, under control of the pope
of Rome. Every parish in the land Is
to have one company, under orders of
the priest; there companies are organ
ized into batalllons under control of the
vicar-general of the bishopric. Thus
It is calculated that an army of a half
million can be called out on a tew
hours' notice by th vicar general, or
by the Commander in Chief Satolli,
vice pope and supreme lord of the
United States.
The pope claims the power to dispose
'of any Protestant country as he may
please. He has given the United States
Into the hands of Satolli, an Italian.
Satolli is organizing his army in every
parish. All Catholics, between the
ages of 16 and 20, unless they already
belong to 6ome military organization,
such as the Roman Knights of St. John,
must enroll in some company of the
Y. M. I.
In Louisville thee are eight coun
cils, the largest of which has a mem
bership of 200. The total membership
in all councils of the city is 800, though
they claim more than double that
The Y. M. I. takes an obligation: 1,
"To support the pope and church In
preference to the state and its laws;
4 'we are Catholics first and citizens
next." 2, To not trade with Protes
tants. 3, To not employ Protestants.
-4, "Where a Catholic and a Protestant
are running for the same office, to vote
for the Catholic, no matter what he
represents." 5, To take part in all
primaries and elections and strive to
get Catholics in all offices.
In the late Republican primary they
succeeded in nominating two candi
dates for sheriff and coroner.
In the coming Democratic primary
they expect to carry two-thirds of the
offices Bad st all hazards are determined
to have McDermott for congress and
Pflanz for sheriff.
The Y. M. I. is an active factor in
boycotts, going around to shops and
factories getting the discharge of Pro
testants. One distillery in tho West
Und has discharged every Protestant,

Gentlemen: I should think It useless
to subscribe for your pajwr any longer,
According to your theory since the fith
the country is on a safe busts. Roman
Catholicism and the Democratic party
crushed under the car of juggernaught
But nevertheless I see you still have
your war pulnt on, fighting bishops,
priests and sisters of charity. Nov
should advise you to be more lenient,
Are you acquainted with those people?
Certainly not, or you would not bo so
rash. You must recollect that the
Catholic filth was first in the field, 100
years before any of your loyal Amerl
cans "as you call them" set their foot
on Plymouth Rock. Now you raise a
1)1 ir buiranoo about convent lite and
seem to know what's going on lnsido,
But one you seem to be acquainted with
That is Maria Monk, who was convicted
In tho criminal courts of New York and
died serving her time on Black wells
Island. Tho others whom you refer to
are apostates from the faith. As to
Bishop McNamara, whom jou defended
so well In the courts of Kansas City
His career you will find out by writing
to Raleigh, N. C. The others do not
amount to nothing. If those turncoats
are "loyal Americans" you will have a
nice crowd. There was two men run
nlng for office, that Is, sheriff, one an
Irishman and the other a German
American. The last named tried the
A. P. A. rackot, organized a lodge
among the negroes, but failed. All In'
telllgent Protestants dropped him and
voted for the Irishman. Now your
scurrilous paper seems to scandalize
Irish, especially Irish Catholics. They
are gentlemen compared to what you
call loyal Americans. But I suppose
you mean Orangemen. It is a pity that
you do not have another William
of Orange or a Cromwell to lead your
A. P. A. mob and murder women and
children, marching to the tune, Boyne
Water. But I will refer you to a sub
stitute by sending for Mr Johnson, of
Bally Klllbcg. He is a loyal Orange
man. Perhaps you are acquainted with
bis Orange lilies. I imagine that you
snifll. d the breeze of Toronto many a
2th of July. If you pretend to be a
loyal American, I would go according
to the constitution, which says: No
religious test shall ever be required as
a qualification to any office of public
trust under the United States. I see
ou are acquainted with all oaths con
nected with the Catholic church. You
should also publish an Orangeman's
oath the same as A. P. As. vou Im
ported from Canada. But it will all
die oat. To hell with the pope, Sa
tolli, and all the rest of them. This
might do in days of yore, but not in
these bright days of the Nineteenth
century. Respectfully,
J. T. Cook.
Naturalization Laws.
Judge Dallas, who presides over a
federal court, recently rendered an
pinion in w hich he holds th at it is the
duty of judges to hear evidence con
cerning the fitness of candidates for
naturalization. And he suggests the
Idea that in every coun-.y it Is the duty
of the district attorney to challenge the
fitness of every applicant for citizen
ship, and to insist upon the production
of proof by witnesses.
This judge has a proper conception
of the rights and duties of citizenship
and it is a thousand pities that all who
sit upon the bench do not share in his
opinions and carry into practice his
precepts. As it is, each court Is a law
unto itself in this respect. One judge
conducts the process of naturalization
in a sober and conservative manner;
another makes citizens of all who ap
ply. Perhaps everybody will agree
that uniformity is desirable.
The matter of citizenship should be
wholly regulated by the federal govern
ment; the supreme law should forbid
any state admitting to the privileges
of the suffrage an alien who has not be
come a naturalized citizen of the United
States. At present one who has been
abroad must live here five years before
he can become a citizen. But in cer
tain western states an alien who has
beea ia tho country three months may
vote for presidential electors, may even
hold office. Surely this is a cheapen
ing and a degredation of the privileges
of citizenship.
The law should be uniform all over
the country. It should be made un
lawful for any state to permit any one
to vote who Is not a citaea of the
United State. Rules and regulation
should be fram-nl for the govero-nent
of the naturalization courts, and ih'i-e
hojid b enforce! In every eouri la th
land. The pro; o' naturalization
should n jt be left to the walmi o'.tlie
j idi;es; it should bi carefully provided
fur by federal statute whicn would bo
equally binding upon all the courts. If
the representativs fr.nn this district
want to wlo distinction an j secure the
gratitude of patriotic citizens, let him
frame and present a bill for the pur-
po described la the foregoing re
mark. American citizenship should be re'
tfa'dfd as too high and sacred a thing
to be put down to the level of the
"cheap counter." The person to whom
it is granted should be worthy. He
should bo able to show that he Is
worthy. And the law thouii forever
put an end to the possibilities of politi
cal bargaining and truckling, now o
common every ytar. Altw.ia Tribune,
No Free Speech.
List week we made mention of the
decision of Judge Doherty, of Quebec,
against the claim of the Catholic lievue
for damages from Archbishop Fabre
whose action ruined the lievue by plac
ing It under ban of the church. Judge
Doherty, himself a Roman Catholic,
held "that the loss and injury Inflicted
on the publisher of the paper, resulted
irom a criticism and a warning against
the paper, which the bishop had a legal
right to publish." The caso has been
appealed to the superior court, on the
ground that while tho archbishop had
a right to criticise the lievue, he had
no right to threaten expulsion from the
sacraments of the church ithose who
might patronize the lievue, since Ro
man Catholics are taught to believe
that the sacraments are essential to
salvation. Writing a criticism Is
very different thing from using author
Ity to crush an enemy. If Canadian
law is powerless to make this distinc
tlon, there can bo no free speech in
that dominion, wherever Catholic j de
pend upon Catholic patronage. Omaha

A Dastardly Assault.
A party of about sixty persons, rep
resenting various lodges of the Ameri
can i'roteotlve Association, went to
Vallejo last night on one of the red
stack tugs to assist in the installation
of a new lodge. On leaving the tug at
Vallejo the excursionists formed in line
and marched to the church where the
lodge was being formed, and tl ere they
were received and entertained by their
trlends and the pastor of the church.
It was near midnight when the party
was ready to return, and the march was
commenced back to the tug. When
about half way down to the wharf the
visiting members were set upon by a
crowd of men, and a fight ensued. The
order of march was broken up, but the
party kept together and reached the
tug. As soon as they were aboard the
assault was recommenced. A shower
Of stones and other missiles were flung
at the tug and several windows were
broken. As the tug moved away from
the dock the assault became more vio
lent and the people on the shore began
fire revolvers. Bullets flew thick
and fast for a few moments and until
the tug was out of range. The shots
were evidently meant to kill, as they
flew all about the tug; but luckily none
of them found a human mark. The
men of the tug'B crew say that eo shots
were fired from the lug, but all the
shooting was done from the shore.

Rev. Dr. Henson during a lecture in
Y. M.C. A. hall Chicago, Sunday atter
noon, Nov. 25, 1894, used the following
"What dominates the city? It Is
dominated in a very large majority by
the foreign elements. I do not wish to
be misunderstood. In London 2 per
cent of the population are foreigners.
In Chicago, who knows? Seventy per
cent or more. I do not object to for
eigners. We are all descendants of
some foreigner. I do not object to a
man's presence here, provided he comes
here to be aa American. Applause. I
do not want to see a Russian-American,
a German-American, an Irish-American,
an Italian-American, but simply
an American. Applause. I want to see
but one Hug on the city hall of New
York, on the city hall of Chicago, on
all our city halls. If a man cannot
learn to love that flag with its stars
and stripes and to sing 'America,' let
him go back to where he came from.
Applause and cries of 'throw him out'

Out of the 158 congressmen that voted

priation bill comes up again it is liable
to get knocked out.
The charm of the order of A. P. As.,

that it means fight! The members are
men who are sick of the apathy and
supineness so prevalent in Protestant
ism in Americanism generally who
allow Rome to trample in the dust their
most cherished institution, without a
word or protest; and allow the many
tentacled monster to seize and control
city after city without even a murmur.
When Archbishop Ireland preached
before the Plenary council in Balti

about Protestantism. He said: "Did
Protestantism advance liberty? It did
nothing for liberty. It introduced into
the world no one new principle that
favored liberty. Its claim to private
judgment in religion was religious an
archy; if it was anything in civil and
political matters, it was political an
archy, the reaction from which always
leads to despotism.

A Chicago Poohbah.
How is it, Mr. Editor, that a man of
such character as Harry F. Donovan
can be justly entitled to the above title,
for he is, so far as we can learn, the
only official occupying appointive posi
tions under the state, county and muni
cipal governments. He is inspector of
the Illinois National Guard, under Gov
ernor Altgeld, with the rank of solonel.
He is a member and chairman of the
county school board, and gas Inspector
of the flopkins' regime. We believe
these are all Democratic appointments,
but certainly not by reason of consist
ent Democracy on the part of the ap
pointee, for having been removed, we
- Y.
think we are entitled to call it removal
when his relg nation was demanded,
for the good of the servke from the
position of t UDerintendent of city de'
livery in the Chicago postoffice, he
went over to the Republicans; tried to
re-elect Mayor Roach, and claimed
recognition of Pres'dent Harris m's ad
ministration for th se services and
sought to get back to his old position
in the government building. Falling
In this he returned t the Democratic
fold with the aid of a paper that few
know ever existed, and those few only
because their attention was specially
called to it, and who did not desire to
have biographical and other notices of
themselves as it was not deemed an
honor, did the opposite of the usual
course paid to have them kept out.
Thii system of revenue did not require
a large circulation, in fact the larger
the business the smaller the sheet.
Why a man "bounced" by the federal
administration should be thus endowed
by the local powers with at least three
public offices as a source of income, not
to speak of the many other sourtes that
we know not of, is, we say, a mystery to
those who kne of his p-iblic and
private course while in the post ffice,
and his reason fjr "leaving." We
need not tell the readers of your paper
that he is a Roman but we are not
bigoted enough to charge the "church"
with responsibility either for his char
acter or the preferments alluded to.
