One of our friendt hat hastened to call
our attention to the tact that the word
"froie" under the out laat week waa cot
good English. True, true; but gocd
Americans understood it.

and valuable of his publications for a

it is a bargain, and one that may never
be offered again.
One of the men appointed by the
board of fire and police commissioners
last Monday night was A. A. Keysor
Keysor's record is as bad as Ormsby's
We once read the sworn statement of a
poor but respectable woman of this city
to the effect that Keysor told her be
would give her 950.00 if she would al
low him to have illicit carnal inter
course with her sixteen-year-old daugh
ter. Such a rascal as that Is a tine
character to clothe with police powers

and inexperienced girls from the ooun
If our country fails to chastise Spain
for the murder of the officers and men
of the Maine, how can Its officers expect
any American mother te teach her son
that be should be ready to give hit life
in defense of the nation? If our boys
are to offer their lives to uphold the
dignity and honor of this nation at any
and all times it should be with the dis
tinct understanding that the life of
every other citizen of the republic it
ready to be offered in their country's be
half in case they should fall. No sum
of money, however fabulous, could com
pensate us for the loss of our son, and
no amount of money can satisfy the pa
rents whose boys were slain through
the damnable treachery of the Roman
Catholio Spaniards who blew up our
battleship in the harbor of Havana the
15th day of last February. To atk for
money would be a greater insult than
that which we have already been called
upon to endure. Nothing but blood

of War to build chapel on too govern
ment reservation: and an Injunction
was granted In tbe District of Columbia
agamtt paying the leading hospital In
that city for public services, b -cause 1
is under the rare of tbe Slaters of Charity!
If our constitutions and laws do not
ready make It clear enough that re
ligion U to have tbe same rights as lr-
religion, and Catholicity the same
rights as sectarianism, the sooner their
provisions to this effect are made effec-
ve and unmistakable the more cbsnce
there will be of saving our country
from tbe abyst of worse than pagan

Tbe American people do not want a
union of church and state.
They will repudiate any party that
makes such union possible.
That was a fine batch of American
citizens which the board of fire and po
lioe appointed as patrolmen last Mon
day night. With the exception of two
or three Rome hat her trade mark on
them all. Even Tom Ormsby was among
the chosen, and every man in Omaha
knows what character of man he It
They will remember him at the ser
geant who, when his fellow Hibernians
were trying to break into a hall where
Council No. 1 of the A. P. A. was meet
lng, said, when repairing to the scene
with a squsd of police, "if there's to be
any shooting, I'll shoot Into tnelr d-
hall." This It fine protection the
Ore and police board are giving the
Protestants of this community! And
Ormsby's sentiment finds a responsive
chord in every Roman heart, and would
find speedy and terrible expression if
this government went to war with Ro
man Catholic Spain, and were the pope
to hint to them, as be has already done
to the Romanists of Europe, that he
"would not fail to use his influence
WHERE THE OCCASION OFFKR9, in Or
der that the legitimate wishes of
the Spanish government may be
REALIZED and THE PRESTIGE OF THE
NOBLE CATHOLIC NATION betjn
impaired." Protestants should now
prepare to protect themselves. "Trust
in God and keep your powder dry,"
would be a good motto.
Our brother has written us that the
Romans are all shouting for war with
Spain, and that it is his opinion that if
hostilities commence the Romans will
enlist to a man In order to disprove the
standing charge that they are disloyal
to all government except that of the
pope. We see he is not up on Roman
tactics. The pope's army in this coun
try had not, up to the hour that he
wrote bis letter, the least idea that
there would be war; consequently
they were ready to jump into tbe breach
and make a display of their loyalty
It Is the worst kind of nonsense to say
that tbey would be permitted to help
deprive the godson of the pope of one
of hit dependenolea. They would toon
be told the interests of tbe church
were an closely connected with the In
terests of Spain that it they could not
support bis oo tbey certainly should
not do anything agalnt him. Thea,
if they bad enlisted, they would derert
lik rats from a sicking ship. Their
record of 2 per cent In tbe lite war
would tot be a n arker! They can't be

The Colorado Catholic thinks It l
about time for the A. P. A.t to tteal
away to Canada. If too editor of tht
paper will permit us to make a predic
tion we will stats that the A. P A.s
will be upholding tbe Stars and Stripes
when his co religionists will be desert
ing those colors la obedience to the
commands of their Irish ecclesiastical
superiors, If there is war between the
United States and Spain; that the A.A
P. A.s will be found defending the life
of the president and hit advisers when
the co-rellglooisU of tbe editor of that
paper are skulking about the nation's
oapltal waiting for a chance to assass
inate them; that tbe A. P. A.'t will be
nursing woundt la front, received la
defense of the nation's honor, while the
oo-rellglonlsts of that editor are hiding
In Roman Catholio convents, not only in
the United States, but In Canada and
Mexico, even in tbe Vatican, tbe
borne of the pope, as did John H. Sur-
ratt, who was tried for complicity In
the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
The A. P. A.t do not boast of tbelr
loyalty; they let their acts speak.
They have just had a city election
in Chicago and, walle the A. P. A. is
dead, very dead, It teems to have been
an lssus in the campaigr. We draw
this conclusion from the following cir
cular which was placed in the handt of
every Romanist in the Eighth ward:
Attention! To the voters of the 8th
ward. The A. P. A's. are holding
private meetings and advocating their
cause to defeat the only catholio candi
date for alderman, Frank Sevclk.
Gentlemen if be la to be defeated be-
cause he Is a catholic, he It willing to
suffer defeat. So we ask you to oast
partylsm aside, and do all you can to
defeat the cause of the A. P. A'a and
their bigotry. Jamea O'Brien, chair
mancommittee." We are pleased to
be able to state that Mr. Sevclk was de
feated. He received a little lees than
one-seventh of the vote past. Be polled
641 votes, Slman, 1,839 and Novak,
,407. We have concluded that there
are some things that are more dead
than the A. P. A., and Mr. O'Brien,
his committee and his candidate are
tome of the things.
Probably tome of our readers knew
Daniel Le Geyt who workxd for the U.
P. railway several years and who died
in this city about three years ago. It
they do they will be Interested in learn
ing that his wife has just escaped from
Roman Catholio institution In St.
Louis, where the wat confined against
her will. Why she was confined there
and why she was not allowed to see her
friends can be inferred from the fact
that she it worth $30,000. She has
been stopping with friends since her
return to this city, among the number
being Mrs. Euclid Martin, wife of our
postmaster. Her other friends, among
whom she numbers such well-known
people as Mr. Fred Montmorency, Mrs
Fonda, Mrs. Kelby, Mrs. Martin and
others equally as prominent, are quite
Indignant at the way she has been
treated by the Romans.
When this country had a grievance
against Spain's aubject and ber Indian
wards In Florida nearly a century ago,
Jackson, commanding the army In the
south, wrote the authorities at Wash
ington an account of the outrages and,
without waiting for Instructions, drove
out the Spaniards, took possession of
their forts, ran up the Stars and Stripes
and then waited for the diplomats to
settle the controversy. A little of
the Jackeonlan vigor would be a good
thing to inject into the present admin
istratlon. Let us whip Spain, then, if
she wants to apologize for her outrage-
out cruelty and treachery of five bun
dred years, we will decide whether it is
couched in proper diplomatic language
We could write a lot of mean things
about tbe president's message, but we
won't We are for the government,
right or wrong. If It's wrong we will
help right it. That should be the atti
tude of every patriot. It ia our judg
meat that bo money was used to secure
the delay! or tha modification of the
melange, which have wrought up tbe
people. McK nle)'a rtcord is not that
of a boodler. NeliLet is It tbe record
of a financially dULooet man. For
that reaaoa a different motive must te
sought. It might be found la bis loy
ally to his friends, or in fear of erronal
pb) ileal violence. Hut It nutter not
what the reason, co.bicg we caa ay
would briug back tbe time ttal t as
bseu consumed In useiis nego'.ia lions.
For that reasoo, looking beyond wbat
is visible to tbe naked eye, and seting
over and ahove McKlthy the sacred
folds of our national erublea we say
stand by it, whether you like the atti
tude of tbe chief executive or not.
Nick Darga.zkkl, Bishop Scsnnell't
rlghtbaod man among tbe Poles In the
Seventh ward, was appointed by the
Are and police commissioners to a posi
tion on tbe pjllce foice. Unless we are
mistaken he is one of the follows who
backed up tbe g ng who made a mur
derous assault on Rev. Kmln.-kl a re
formed Roman priest tome three
yeara ago. Ia that scrimmage the ex
priest came out uoscratched, but tbe
church and adjoining lota were cov
ered with his wounded and dying as
sailants, among the most seriously
wounded being Dargactwskl's brother.
A man who connives at or participates
lo riots because some other man differs
with him in religion ia not a fit person
to invest with police power.
For the third time SelineClewett has
been deprived of a verdict for damages
against the House of the G.od Shep
hei d at St. Paul through the disagree
ment of tbe jury on which Roman
Catholics were permitted to tit. A
judge who will permit men to tit at
jurors In a case In which they have a
personal Interest ought to be Impeached
if such a thing can be done. All true
Roman Catholics are personally inter
ested In every suit brought against any
person or institution acting under the
authority of the Roman church.
We have plenty of the Issue of Jan
nary 28, containing the exposure of
Rome t plot to take this country by the
tword. Ten for SO cent; fifty for 91.2a;
100 for 92. ; 600 for 97.50; 1.000 for
910. Hare you aent any of that num
ber to your friends T Ton should! They
should not aleep longer.
I think there are few people who
want war with Spain, unless it is for
the best interests of all concerned.
And while the Roman Catholio church
does not want war with Spain because
Spain it a Roman Catholic country
and it doing ail she can to prevent tbe
United States from having war with
that country (she would prefer England)
this church, which has a certain influ'
efice with the secular press, is shouting
all the time about the men ia Wall
street stopping tbe war. If the Roman
Catholio church could get out of an at
mosphere where there is continual ly
lng and deception she would be like a
fish out of water. If she were id see
honesty and truth walk into one of her
places where she had convened her
