Leading nu mber of tho church are

"Guy Fawkes was the most noted of
the sixteen visible conspirators in the
gunpowder plot. He with such Roman
Cathollo nobles as Caterby, Stanley,
Winter and Percy, took solemn oath to
blow up the house of parliament, then
gather the Catholics of the midland
counties for revolt, and with the help
of Cathollo Spain, that stood ready,
turn England over to the pope. Fawkes,
like Miles Standlsh, had fought in
Flanders. Under direction of Sir Wo.
Stanley and the Jesuits he had quite a
military career. He and all his con
spirators were steeped In plots. Under
solemn oath, sealed by the sacrament
at the hands of Gerard the Jesuit, they
begin the horrid work, la May, 16(15,
a house is rented near the houeo of par
liament. A tunnel is dug nlno feet
under pretense of mining. Later a
vault is rented immediately under the
house of parliament. Hero there was
stored one night thirty-six barrels of
gunpowder, covered with wood. Fawkes
passed as Percy's servant. The disease
meriilrg such remedy was that King
James did not give the Romanists all
the oflices thst they hungered for. He
was bound by the laws inherited from
Queen Elizabeth banishing the priests
and recusants. His political promises
were like those of the present day.
brittle as pie-crust and made to be
broken. The plot leaked out through
the desire to keep the Roman Catholic
lord from the parliament. Word came
to the king. The sheriff found Fawkes
among the thlrty-slx barrels of powder
ready to ignite the whole. He and his
party were tortured and killed, as well
as the priest that knew the plot, but
under the seal of the confessional re
fused to give a word of warning.
"The RomUh leaders assembled
under a pretense of forming a party for
bunting, some 200 horse, and they had
arms In readiness, but most of them
were killed In flight. Those captured
were drawn and quartered. A special
thanksgiving for this deliverance of
the king and the parliament was held
in England annually for 200 years, and
for that period Roman Catholics were
kept out of office. During the last 100
years they have crept back Into the
politics of England and now are quite a
factor insomuch that they are called
in Britain and on the continent, the
'clerical party.' Mr. Chas. Butler, in
his 'Book of the Roman Catholic
church,' defends the conspirators, but
he is so completely answered by the
prebendary of Durham, that his work
never received a very large circulation,
Mr. Geo. Townsend says: 'The guilt of
tkis plot must be charged upon the Ro
manist in general, (p. 2S5 of Accusa
tions of Hist. vs. the Church of Rome)
It was justified by principles taught by
Romanism and preached by priests in
their instructions. It was approved by
their superiors and executed by their
agents. That a king may be deposed
and killed is taught by Romanism.
Also, Romanism teaches the lawful
ness of killing kings after public sen
tence. Strangely too they deny that
they commit regicide on the ground
that a deposed king is only a private
person. Henry III of France was so
slain and many others.
D "The king wrote against that arro
gant and ambitious supn uisvy of their
head, the poM and say, "That I may
make a separation, not only between
all my good tubject In general and un
faithful traitor., that intend to with
draw thi mcelve from my ohcdicnrt;
but ecjKclally to make a separation be
tween to many of my turijects, who,
though they weru otherwise pcpUhly
affected, yet retained in their heart
the print of their natural du'y to their
sovereign.' To this end he drew up an
oath atklng all his subjects to swear
'that the mi, neither of htmcelf, nor
by any authority of the church, or tee
of Rome, or by any other meuns, with
any other, hath any power or authority
to dejiose the king.' Citizens were a so
sworn against 'treasons and traitorous
conspiracies.' The doctrineof regicide
or taught by Romanism was expressly
made plain and each loyal Englishman
said: 'I do from my heart abhor, de
test and abjure as Impious and hereti
cul this damnable doctrine and igni
tion.' So sav we all of us.
"America may be driven to adopt a
test oath yet. The Boston Citizunn'
Commlttoe of One Hundred have ad
vocated this for some years. There Is
not a reason for Its use In England that
does not apply with equal force In the
United States. R.' v. Geo. Townsend,
A. M , writing early In the last century
said: 'Never can there be any ponce
among our people harmony In our
councils or union of our energies and
resourse;s, unless the authority of the
Htpe of Rome, whether spiritual or
torajwral, bo utterly and finally ab
jured.1 Some Romanists took the oath
of allegiance, but tho pope sent two
briefs commanding the faithful to ab
jure It, and he was obeyed. Thus he
had power above the king and all his
icalra. The controversy was great
even among the Romanists. It was
like tho raging of a storm. Oil was
poured un the troubled waters ana
the billows were hushed to repose.
This tranquility, however, was only
maintained so long as Romanists were
shorn of political power. Our ship of
stitto rocks In the waves of approaching
storm. May the principles that guided
tne bravo Britishers preserve us in this
time of plot against American institu-
A Move In the Klght Direction.
Chicago, 111., Sunday, Deo. 2nd, 1804.
The Protestant Protective Union was
organized today at Masonic Temple,
144 Twenty-second street, at 2:30 p. M.
The meeting was made up of Protes
tant denominations, and Included mem
bers of many patriotic and benevolent
orders, as well as freethinkers and lib
eral minded people, both male and fe
male. After vecal music the principal
speech was delivered by Rev. O. E.
Murravi on the "Little Red School
House," which was frequently Inter
rupted by applause. After the speech,
a collection was taken up to pay for 120
song books The Singing Patriot and
a motion was made declaring the or
It Is to be strictly non-sectarian and
patriotic, inculcating practical and use
ful lessons in good citizenship for young
and old, and to hold regular meetings
every Sunday afternoon, at the same
time and place.
John Woodard was elected president,
Charles A. Story, secretary, and Chas.
Bolander, treasurer. An executive
committe was elected, composed of
representatives from the several Pro
testant churches, the G. A. R., the Or
angemen, Daughters of America, W.
A. P. A., P. O. S. of A . Jr. O. U. A.
M., A. P. A. and many other patriotic,
religious and fraternal societies.
The meetings are to be open to the
public, and all people who love their
country, its schools and its flag, male
and female, young and old, are invited.
Seats free, and a collection will be taken
to defray expenses. Rev. O. E. Murray
will be present at every meeting, with
out pay. There will be congregational
singing from the song book, and a choir
is being organized.
Charles A. Story,
The Jew in Masourj,
It is not strange that the history and
symbolism in the Biue Lodge is so at
tractive and of such interest to the
Je; that the capitular and cryptic de
grees are to him a source of pleasure
and devotion. Well might he exclaim:
It is my father's house; the events of
my people; my home. The devote Is
raelite finds a vision of the past, scenes
of his people's former glory, the fulfill
ment of the prophecy, the Jehovah.
What to the Gentile may seem cere
monial, to him it is worship: To us
"The desolation of Zion" is history, to
him a reality. The song of the captive
on the banks of the Euphrates is to us
a sad and plaintive lyric. To him it is
outpouring of heart and soul. No, it is
not strange that a djvout Jew loves
Masonry. It is not he who causes Ma
sonry to blush. It is not he who finds
fault with Christian prayers. "The
Lion of the Tribe of Judah" is as much
of a reality to him as to the Christian.
The latter may see him as having
come; tsc Jc may sec c:rn, by faith,
as yet to come; and under the triangle
oi rather, Son and Holy is pint, both
Jew and Gentile can bow, breathe in
solemn accents Ehjeh Asher Ehyeh.
It is stated that Rev. Father Booker
vice, rector of the United States college
at Rome, will succeed Rev. Father
i'apl as secretary of the apostolic dele
gation at Washington.
In preparing the platform of the
coming political campaign, say what
you mean, and cay It in full. I suggest
the following, at one plnk:
TAXATION OP SECTARIAN PHOI'KRTY,

lent to appropriation from the public
treasury, we believe that all property
not owned ttn.l rontroll d by the nation
or the state, or the p ilitica! sub ilivis
lorn of the name, should pny Its just and
pro-rata chare of taxes; and the only
exceptions to this general rule that
should ever be tolerated, are those cases
where libraries, acndeml s, colleges,
universities, hosoltal. charitable
homes, scientific and benevolent Insti
tutions are open to the public, and for
the honefit f all, and are absolutely
free from sectarian or denominational
control and management. But we In
sist and demand that all property
owned, controlled, or manag -d In the
interest of any sect, denomlna'ion, as
sociation, church, corporation, creed,
caal, faction or party, to further its
own aims and p'irp'tses, shall pay its
pro-raU share of assessment levied for
the expenses of the nation and the
state. We feel justified In announcing
the fact that this property, so do
scribed, Including church property,
cathedrals, pastoral residences, sec
tarian schools, academies, colleges,
hospitals, reformatories, houses of the
Good Shepherd, convents, monasteries,
nunneries, missionary station?, retreats
and other denominational, factional,
sectarian and party property, amount
ing, in this republic, to many billions
of dollars in value, which has not la
the past, and does not now, pay one cent
of taxes for the general expenses, Is not
only unjust, cruel and outrageous, un
fair toward all other citizens and ab
horent to all fair-minded people, but is
a shame and disgrace upon this age
and country; and we demand that the
assessor be ordered to placo all this
property upon his tax-list and levy
taxes thereon at the same rate that all
other private property has to pay; and
we further demand that the said, sec
tarian and ecclesiastical institutions
and factional property, shall, at all
times, be subject to v sltatlon, Inspec
