Cardiff, WaU; November 14, lsl.H.
Editor The American: Your valu

(rood shape and encourages n;e gn-atly
in the work ot placing bt-'ore lt-ltisii.-ri
the merit ( the A. f. A. Judging
from the following l'em clipi-d from
the Cardiff Evening Eiprtts, of Novem
ber 10th, this town above all others
Leeds the establishment of councils and
1 am preparing to send my first shot
into the enemies camp.
The following U a brief biography
of a new mayor of a South Wales bor
ough who came into ofllce on Friday,
' Cardiff. Aldermiin P. V. Carev
was born near tte Hock of Caehel,
County Tipperary, on the -lh of May,
SV, but his parents removed to Car
ditl two years afterwards, and here, at
St. David's Catholic school, the future
mayor received his education, under
the tuition of Fathers Caccia and Sig
ninl. For eighteen years Mr. Carey
was in the consular service, and was
for some time rice and deputy consul
for the United States. He is at the
head of a large wholesale and retail
wine and spirit undertaking. He was
elected to the council in 1880 for the
West Ward, was re-elected in 1883, and
made an alderman in 18, and is a jus
tice of the peace for the borough. The
new mayor is a prominent member of
the Irish and Roman Catholic party in
Cardiff, and is the first Irish Roman
Catholic to fill the position of mayor,
alderman, and magistrate in the town."
The above biography is self-explana
tory, and should serve to bring the Pro
testants of Cardiff to a realization of
the dangers which threaten them in al
lowing the Roman hierarchy a foothold
in their municipal government It is
a peculiar co incidence that I should
leave the Chicago of America, ruled by
a Romanist mayor, and come to the
i Chicago of Wales" and find it select
ing a Romanist mayor, and as Mayor
Hopkins, of Chicago, 111., Is a promin
ent member of the Irish Roman Catho
lic party (Clan-na-Gael) so is Mayor
Carey a prominent member of the Irish
Roman Catholic party here.
Cardiff, some years ago was given a
6evere lesson by the Roman Catholic
Irish, which she ought to have profited
by, but in allowing her city fathers to
select, above all others, an "Irish Ro
manist," and that too when the rest of
the aldermen were English and Welsh
Protestants, is proof that there is some
thing radically wrong and ought to be
seen to, otherise the lethargy of the
people might add still more power to
the Roman hierarchy. But the prin
ciples of the B. P. A. (British Protec
tive Association) are being circulated
and will thwart the evil designs of Pope
Leo and his hirelings. May the good
work continue is the prayer of
Council No. 72, Chicago.
The letter of J. G. Birchfield, Wash
ington, D. C. is an important one. Mr.
Traynor's articles is an important one,
but not as important as Mr. Birchfield's
I mean by that that Mr. Birchfield is
on the right track. Mr. Traynor is
evidently In the smoke of the battle
and cannot tell where he is (at). I tell
you, Mr. Editor, Mr. Birchfield is right.
"Discretion is the better part of virtue, "
and I want you to fight on the same
line. And if Mr. Traynor is not care
ful he will be elected to stay at home
next time. The men who are sought
for as leaders are cool-headed fellows;
and as goon as one begins to show too
many departures he is in danger. So I
advise Mr. Traynor, for the good of the
order and his own good, to be more con
servative. My grandfather once was walking
through a part of the country where he
was not acquainted. He stopped at a
house and Inquired the way. The wo
man at the house said, "You go to de
barn and take do barn on your pack till
you come to two roads and tike em
bote." That is exactly what the policy
of the A. P. A. should be regarding the
two old parties, and nothing short of it.
If the A. P. A. were to become an in
dependent party, there would be dan
ger of one of two things. One would
be to "fizzle out," the other would be a
bloody wa-. And t would not be sur
prised if it were the latter. The A. P.
A. has a big work to do, and let her do
it. The mills of the gods grind slow
tout exceedingly fine, so do not hurry
too much. There are many forces at
work beside the ballot box, and they
are working all the time. Give them a
little time, and in a quiet but effective
way they will shake the pillars of the
Vatican. JOE C. FCS.

Chicago, 111., Sunday, Dec. 2nd. 1894.
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 vocal music the principal
speech was delivered by Rev. O. E
Murray, on the "Little Red School
House," which was frequently inter
rupted by applause. After the speech,
a collection was taken up to pay for i20
song books The Singing Patriot and
a motion nu made declaring the or
It is to be strictly oon bectarlan and

Priest Nooimn of Los Angeles Lives a
Double Life His Escapades Become so
Public That he Has to Ot Out.
The Los Angeles Times, of November
24, is responsible for the story thai
Joseph Noonan, who for some years
past has bean a priest of the church of
Our Lady of the Angels, Los Angeles,
has suddenly made up his mind to take
a trip to Europe. The Times goes on
to state that Mr. Noonan, during his
stay at Los Angeles, has been leading
a double life, his days and nlghti being
spent when not in the execution of
priestly offices in company with pros
titutes and drunkards in his own private
apartments. He was a great friend of
the prize fighter, Corbett. The scandal
at last became so open and well known
that the bishop was compelled to inter
fere, and the gay young priest was re
moved. It Is asserted that he has gone
to a European monastery to do penance,
and so, for the present, the story is
Could it be ascertained how many
pure young minds the debauched rascal
has filled with impurity in the secrecy
of the confession box; how many young
women have been started down the
road to social and moral ruin by this
wolf tn disguise, there would doubtless
be a great flutter in Los Angeles society.
Yet the priest is less to blame than the
system which brings a healthy, robust
priest into contact and seclusion with
womanly innocence and purity, and yet
denies to him the rights of legitimate
matrimony. Finally, is it true that
Noonan has been sent to a monastery,
or has he merely been transferred to
another diocese, there to duplicate his
Los Angeles infamy, as was the case in
the matter of the rapist, Priest Con
nelly, of Two Harbors, Minn.? The
jfimies will confer a favor upon Protes
tants and papists alike by looking into

Years in the Church of Rome
Lost His Job.
JOPLIN, Mo., November 25, 1894.
Editor American: Robert Shreve,
of this city, till recently was an em
ployee of the postal department here,
being a substitute letter carrier. Since
the last election, charges were pre
ferred against him at Washington, the
postmaster here being a Catholic, or a
tool of Rome. It was alleged that
Shreve (being an American) used his
influence against C. H. Morgan, Demo
cratic candidate for congress in this
district because Morgan voted for the
Indian Appropriation bill, etc. Shreve
did not deny, and so he lost his job. So
it goes. Tim Nixon.
