On behalf of the Loyal Orange Lodge of
the United States of America, and with a
view of correcting the false Impression that
enemies are endeavoring to convey to the
minds of men who are unacquainted with
Orange principles, are these few statement!
The Loyal Orange Institution Is a brother
hood and sisterhood, bound by three ties
Justice, Truth and Righteousness.
It has no hidden alms
It Is Fraternal and Henevolent assisting
and protecting members while living and
their widows and orphans when they are re

It upholds the right of private Judgment
the untrammelled freedom of opinion; be
lieves the public schools are an essential
safeguard of the Btate, and should be kept
free from ecclesiastical or sectarian control
and that persons disloyal to the government
who hold a mental allegiance to the pope

r.un of acltlten In the exercise of his or ber
right of franchise, uuder the guta of rellg

Thai It Is the duty of every rltlxeo to de
fend the lawfully constituted authority and
tnstllutlonii of our country against corrupt
aud Inimical Influences, as well as against
armed awallauta. tn the end that our glori
ous freedom be protected and transmitted

DEI'I.AHATtllN Of PH I NCI Pl.KH,
The National Council of the Junior Order
of l ulled American Mechanics lu annual
session assembled declares:
That the constant landing upon the shores
of the hordes of ignorant, vicious and lawless
criminals of t he Old World should be viewed
with alarm by the loyal and patriotic cltl
ens of this country.
We aftirm a warm and hearty welcome to
all Immigrants who desire to heller their
condition and become a part and parcel of
our nationality, but we have not one square
Inch of room for the anarchist, the soHalist
or nihilist, or for any one who Is not willing to
bow allegiance to that Hag which Is powerful
enough toshleld and protect them as well as
us. In the exercise of all civil and religious
We affirm our devotion to the public school
system of this country. We believe In com
pulsory education, and that all teaching In
our schools should he In the English lan
guage. Ui the end that, future generations
may be able to take their place In the ranks
of our couutry's workers, educated In the
history, the customs and manners of Ameri
cans. We guarantee to every man the liberty of
worshiping tiod according to the dictates of
his own conscience, and would glveeverv as
sistance to protect all lu the exercise oi his
liberty, but we object most strenuous to
the Interference of any church, no matter
under what name It may exist, In the tem
poral afTatrs of this country.
We believe that the Bible should be read In
our publieschools; not to teach sectarianism,
but. to Inculcate Its teachings. It Is the
recognized standard of all moral and civil
law; we therefore believe, that our children
should be educated In Its teachings, but that
no dogma or creed should be taught at the
We believe that patriotism and love of
country should be Instilled Into the hearts of
children, and that, with the words of
'Mother," "Home" and "Heaven." our chil
dren should be taught that our flag Is the
symbol of all that makes a "home" for us.
We would place a flag upon every public
school In our land, and a Hlhle within, aud
the object lesson therein set forth should be
a beacon light In every storm which threat
ens to engulf us.
In this noble and patriotic work we ask the
Cordial and hearty co-operation of all good
cltlr.ens. In this grand work we need the
helping hand of all organizations holding the
same views and principles. We have no time
for Jealousies and bickerings, hut with a
united front we should march forward,
shoulder to shoulder, remembering that
"United we stand, divided we fall."
In the strictest sense we are a national
politl al organization, but we oppose with
unanimity the slightest taint of partlsanlsm.
"Our country" Is our motto, anil we keep
this motto steadily before us. We are cogni
zant that there are great and powerful
enemies within our midst, requiring the
strictest surveillance of all who are at heart,
word and lu deed Americans. We. as memhers
of this Order, affirm our allegiance to the
object of the Order as paramount to any
partisan alllllation, and urge upon the mem
bership harmonious, united and Intelligent
action In carrying out the principles.

We woehl r.spectfully call your alien!!,
to the fact ih:,( there Is In t his oil y a council
of Ihe Order of United American Mechanic.
to which we would be happy to have y
give a moment's thought, and If favorably
Impress,.,!, would like your name proposed
The Older of United American Mechanic
was organised In Philadelphia on the l.Mli
day of July, 1M.V Its llrst Im'culon was for
the protection of Mechanics aud Working
ineo alone, and for a number of years none
but operative mechanics ami worklngmen
were a. milled to Its membership; but the
great interests of principles Involved In lis
existence caused a departure from that
plan, and the Order has for years existed and
exists today as an order of speculative me
chanics, recognizing every one possessed of
the birth requirements, who works for
malntalnance either by hand or brain or
both as eligible to membership, and numbers
among Its members men of every profession.
and calling lu life.
The objects of I his order are to assist each
ulher In ohtalnliigemptoyme ul: Uieucourage
each other In business; to establish a Hick
and funeral fund; to establish a fund for
the relief of widows and orphans and lo aid
members; and to aid members who. through
Providence, may be Incapacitated from fol
lowing their usual vocations. In obtaining
situations suitable to their attllctlous. The
membership of this order Is composed of
white nolle cltlzeus born In Hie United
States, or under the protection of Its Hag.
This order has existed for nearly fifty years.
and Is at present, rapidly spreading through
out the United States. As an American born,
aud having the welfare of yourself and
family at heart, as well as that of the uatlon
at large, we would most heartily invite you
to become a member of the U. A. M as It Is
the only Order In existence founded es
pecially to promote the Interests, elevate
the character and secure the happiness of
the American mechanic and business man.
It therefore appeals to the head aud heart
of him who wields the pen as well as to him
who swings the scythe or wields the sledge
hammer of the mechanic. In Its councils, a
free discussion of principles relating to the
fostering and care of t he Interests of Indi
vidual members Is permitted ; but nothing of
apolitical or sectarian character is ever al
lowed to be discussed. It has no alllllation
with such Institutions as Trades Unions,
Knights or Labor, Sovereigns of Industry, or
the like, and desires not to control either
capital or labor, us It would be doing a gross
Injustice to many of Its members, who are
taken from both classes. The membership
of the Order Is scattered from Maine to Cali
fornia, and from all points co nes the glorious
news that the Order Is gaining great strength
In ull Jurisdictions.
An endowment branch s also connected
with the Order, both national and state,
which Insures those who seek Its benefits,
enabling them to leave a sum, which Is in all
cases substantially and promptly paid, to
the dear ones, when death marks Its mem
bers for Its own.
It seems very strange Indeed that the
American does not feel inclined to become
so peculiarly national in his Ideas and as
sociations as do the Kugllsh, French, Ger
man, Irish, and other nationalities. Each
and all of the foregoing have their peculiar
national organizat lous, and take pride in
same. But the American Joins order aftei
order, composed of a mixture of nationali
ties, aud lets his own countrymen severely
alone In the matter of secret and fraternal
We would not belittle any of the existing
secret beneficial associations. Far from It.

But we do ask him who Is to the manor born
to turn his thoughts to home and native
land, so that he can oin In the glad refrain:
"Thou art my native land,
I own thy fostering hand;
Though far from thee I roam,
Still thou art my home."
Americans, we of this Brotherhood appeal
to you to aid us In this work we are now
carrying on. You must either be for us or
against us. Choose quickly and let us show
to the country that we firmly believe In
American principles. American Industry.
American protection aud American govern
ment. Strikes riots and boycotting are
terms too harsh to be applied to American
Mechanics. Bonded together by promptings
of patriotic affection, may this Order grow
and progress, until every man who calls
himself American can stand up and say n
iilllncerity, I own no man as master of my
Patriotic Order Sons of America.
