Why would not J. M. Macfarland and

Many pooule are at a loss to under

the qualities of Judge Keysor.

Some wag suggests a debate between

B. F. Thomas, the solicitor for Bates,
Smith & Co., has gone to Boston to at
tend the meeting of the Knights Tem

putting his political fences in repair,
and make an effort to get the Republi
can nomination for county judge.
We telephoned to our friend John O.
Yelser to come down and read the proof
on a brief, this morning. We received
this "brief" answer: "Just let that
proof go to the devil; I've just had a
boy born out at my house; I think he is
an A. P. A. he gave roe a grip. I
know he's a Populist. We're all doing
well." And then bang went the tele
phone. We hope that boy may grow
up and be as fearless an exponent of
principles he believes to be right as
his father is today.
The footlights In Omaha are flashing
again, and the lovers of dramatic art
are making nightly pilgrimages to the
temples of Thespls, there to drink the
fullest draughts of pleasure. Here
Thrspis has to magnificent temples,
which are beautifully decorated, tastily
draped with costly hangings and ap
propriately set with modern furnish
ings. They are Boyd's Theatre and
the Creighton Theatre.
The first has established a reputa
tion tor admitting none but the best
dramatic talent within Its portals, and
the latter will strive to emulate its
rival's example. We say the latter
will strive to emulate that example, for
this reason: The Creighton Is a new
venture. lis doors were thrown open
to the public for the first time last
Thursday night, when Mr. Chas. Froh
man's company presented "The
Masqueraders" to as fine an audience as
ever assembled In one of Thespls' tem
ples in this city. The same company
will hold forth the remaining two
nights of this week, and will be fol
lowed by "Alabama" the first four
nights of next week.
The opening night at Boyd's was an
equally notable event. The large au
dience hardly recognized the old play
house, so extensive had been the
changes and so well had the scenic ar
tist done his work. The interior was a
blaze of beauty, which harmonized
well with that of the artists engaged
In the production of the "Bowery Girl."
This production will be followed
shorllr by other of ejual or greater
merit, as soma of the best companies in
the country have date to fill during
the coming .

Editor Amehican: Your loyal pa
per is a welcome vlsttor in our home, and
I cannot see how a tree American can
afford to be without it. Surely there
never was a time when our great Re
public was so much in danger as now.
Every loyal man and woman should be
awake to our nation's interest, should
know of the inroads the enemies of
freedom are making on our rights, our
privileges and our press.
We should no longer look to our
parties for men to fill our offices, from
president down to the lowest office;
they should be truly American.
We should have for our watchword
the same our great president had when
expecting a great conflict, when he said
to his men: "Put none but Americans
on guard tonight."
We should have It, Put none but true
loyal Americans on your ballot in 'l5.
Look to the principle not the p-tyi 'r
party is no longer the question, but
America or Rome, that's the question.
Can we as Americans sell our great
nation for party? I can answer for
every true loyal man, No, no. Let us
know no North, no South, but let us
stand as one solid mass and let our
motto be: "America free and eqital for
all." We must not give up our land,
with all its coveted wealth and blood-
bought liberties, its freedom alike to
all, and its loyalty. Wo cannot sell our
rights, for we would not only sell our
own but tho rights of our future poster
ity. Our children we would bring Into
bondage, Ignorance and vice.. Our wives
and daughters would be subjects of tho
priests and their wlakod confessionals
and become ininatos of the worse than
living tombs, burled, worse than deud,
In the cursed convonts, tortured with
unspeakable sufferings. Can we, must
we, bring such curses on our children?
Rome is a mighty foe, too great for
us if we are divided. We muBt be
united for our country. The great
whore is already drunken with the blood
of saints; and she is even now panting
for the Christian blood of America.
Hor sword is drawn from the sheath,
and it behooves us as Americans to lay
all other parties down and be ready for
the conflict. May God grant us God-fearing
men to rule our land in peace and
prosperity. Yours truly for America.

We Denounce Dishonesty.
The question has been aked by some
that, If an A. P. A. in office falls to
faithfully discharge his duty to the
publlo, will the order shield and sustain
him? In roply to which it may be
stated: Members of the A. P. A. who
are proved to bo guilty of malfeasance
or misfeasance in office meet with a
more vigorous denunciation from the
A. P. A. than would public offenders
who are non-adherents of the order.
Politicians are constantly attempting
to break into the A. P. A. for the sole
purpose of obta'nlng the support of the
order. During the infancy of all bodies
they are too apt to allow men, without
sufficient investigation of their eligi
bility, to enter their ranks. This has
occurred In the ca9e of the A. P. A.
But no man who has docelved the peo
ple and debased his manhood will be
endorsed or sustained by the Ameri
cans. Nothing more certain than that.

St. Josej-h, Mo , Augut 20, It-Do
The apologUU for the celibate prle.t-
hood of the Romsn church have re
ceived another severe blow in this city,
and, as uual, the rebuke comes from a
purely Catholic source. Anothercharge
ha been added to the terrible indict
ment already standing against the
hierarchy . and once more the state has
been aked to redress a I einous crime
said to have been committed by a Ro
man Catholio priest upon one of LU

The people of this city were startled
yesterday evening by the announcement
in iheevenlng paers that Rev. Charles
Baker, a Roman Catholio misolonary
priest of thisdlocce, had been arrested
on a warrantcbarglng him with asxault
and intent to commit rape. The shock
was doubly severe on those toe-kissers
who have been in the habit of dubbing
all accounts of such occurrence as
"trumptdup A. P. A. lies." The
records of the sheriff's fllee would not
lie, however, and all that was loft to
fall back upon was the old, moth-eaten
chestnut of "blackmail."
The following account, which is
clipped from the St. Joseph Herald of
this morning, gives the details:
J. A. Flanagan, whose post-office is
Pleasanton, Decatur county, la., but
who lives in Harrison county, Missouri,
and is constable of the township in
which Andover, Mo., Is located, will
leave St. Joseph this morning with a
prisoner charged with a most serious
The prisoner is Rev. Father Charles
Baker, or Boecker, a Catholio priest;.
and the crime charged against him is
that of attempting criminal aseault on
the person of Mrs. Victoria Higdon,
who lives near Andover.
Rev. Baker is a missionary priest,
and as such ministers regularly at the
Catholio mission at Andover. When
in that vicinity he boarded around
among tho members of the church,
and was stopping last week with the
widow of Pius Higdon, an uncle cf Mrs.
Hlgdon's husband.
Mrs. Victoria Higdon is the daugh
ter of J. A. Flanagan, and lives about
four miles from Andover on the same
farm as does the family of Pius Hig
don. She has bcon married to Joseph
Higdon about three years and has one
child. On August 15th she went over
to her aunt's to spend the evening,
and while thero she alleges that the
priest, who Ib 62 years old, enticed her
Into his room, where he attempted to
outrage her. She, however, escaped
him and went home, informing her hus
band of the facts. Next day he con
sulted with his wife's father, and it
was decided to get out a warrant for
Baker, but when they came to look for
him he had left for St. Joseph.
The warrant was placed in the hands
of the woman's father, who is conBta
ble, and he came to St. Joseph on Sun
day looking for his man. He found
him at the Brothers' - college, but
could not arrest him on the warrant
without first having it endorsed by a
justice of this county. He left the
document with the sheriff and went
bacn homo. Deputy Sheriff Noland
went to the college yesterday and was
told that Father Baker was not there,
but on reaching the Brother Director he
was informed that his man was up
stairs, and he arrested him without
difficulty. Sheriff Andrlano released
him on $1,000 bond, with Thomas F.
Ryan as surlty, to answer when called
for by the narrlson county officials.
Mr. Flanagan returned to St. Joseph
yesterday and will take his prisoner
back this morning.
When arrested Rev. Baker stated to
Deputy Noland that they were having
a good time at Mrs. Hlgdon's, and were
all drunk. He said he had been suffer
ing severely with rheumatism in one of
his limbs for some time, and walked
with a cane. Young Mrs. Higdon came
to his room and rubbed his rheumatic
leg with her hand, but. he had offered
her no indignities, and was much as
tonished at his arrest. He told the
deputy that a good deal of whisky was
consumed and that the entire party was
under its influence.
To Deputy liescn ne saia mat r lan-
agan, the father of the woman, had
come to him on Sunday and wanted to
settle the matter, but he declined,
thlnkfltg it was a blackmailing scheme.
He denied any effort on his part to in
any way take aivantage of the woman.
Mr. Flanagan was seen by a Herald
reporter while in the sheriff's office
yesterday. He was very reticent, but
denied that there was any gathering
at the elder Mrs. Hlgdon's at the time
of the trouble. He said his daughter
had gone there to spend the evening,
and that the priest had attempted to
assault her while she was separated
from the family. He claimed his
daughter was and is respectable, and
that the priest, on learning that a war
rant would be Issued for him, hurriedly
left Andover and came to St. Joseph,
and that he forgot all cbout his alleged
rheumatism and walked to the depot
without a cane, carrying two gtips. He
says he has been constable nine years
and that if the prisoner is proved not
guilty he will be discharged other
wise he will be punished. Itlsthought
however, by some of the officers, that
he may offer personal violence to the
reverend prisoner before reachlrg An

wlteeii being his daughter. Mr. Flan
