OF PRES. LINCOLN
Every Person Implicated In
the Diabolical Plot a Ro
Standpoint Occupied by E Priest
Chiniquy. V. ho was the Pres.
IJcnt's Close Friend.
Father Cbiniquy. the apostate Cath
olic priest, who has been Iwturins in
Baltimore, in conversation with a
Morning Herald reporter, made a
ni.mhor rst Blatempl.tS regarding, the
U UU WV a ' -
assassination of President Lincoln,
which are not to be found in the his
tories of the period, and accounts for
that lamentable tragedy:
"I am a French Canadian by birth,"
aid he to the reporter, "and was born
In Kamovaska, Canada, in 1809. Both
of my parents were Catholics, and I
was, of course, (nought up in that
faith. From a very early age I was
destined for the priesthood, and my
education was conducted with that end
always in view. Having been ordain
ed, I arose very vapidly in the esti
mation of my religious superiors as
well as in popular favor, and was soon
looked upon us one of the most prom
ising members or the Canadian priest
hood. My work in the cause of tem
perance brought me Into special prom
" mence, and I became widely known
all over Canada, and, indeed, in the
, Catholic church everywhere.
"In 1S51 Catholic bishops and clergy
from all over North America met in
secret conclave at Huffalo. N. Y.. and
there the question was discussed, and
It was decided to seize the cities of
North America fur the Catholic
church. The plan adopted was to
bring Catholic emigrants from Europe
In sufficient numbers to gain control
of the city governments by 'popular
vote. The attempt was carried out to
some extent, and was successful at
least in New York. It was particu
larly the desire of the church to get
possession of the
school fund in the
various cities in onicr id use n no
the benefit of Catholicism. The well
remembered strtmnle for the expulsion
of the Hible from the publiv schools
In Cincinnati in 1S70 was the out
growth of the action of the conclave
"At this same conclave I was assign
ed to go to Illinois with a band of
French Canadian Catholics and to
found a colony or co.onies. Colonists
also came from France, and early in
1S52 I founded my colony at St. Anne,
Kankakee county, 111. A chapel or
church was built, and, we had a con
gregation of about .r 'tt souls.
-Jn IS.aS, after seveial years of
Btudv am! many trials. I determined
to leave the Church of Home, whose
doctrines I no longer bej eved. It was
on Saturday evening that I reached
my final determination, and the next
morning I went Into the pulpit and
told my congregation of the step I
was about to take, and my reasons.
After talking to them for two hours
I put the matter to a vote, and all but
fifteen of my 300 parishioners ex
pressed their intention of following
me. Tnis action, when it became
known, created no little excitement all
over the country. About a year later
we joined the Chicago Presbytery, and
afterward the Canadian Presbytery
to which we still belong.
"Previous to this Abraham Lincoln
had defended me when I wag prose
cuted bv the church, and when, some
tim after our withdrawal from the
church our colony was theatened with
destruction from famine, he came for
ward and for our benefit delivered a
lecture, in which he denounced the or
der of the Jesuits with the greatest
boldness. This made our former
friendship all the stronger.
"In 18C2 a Canadian Jesuit priest
was converted through my teaching
and from him I first learned of a plot
of that order to assasmate Mr. Lin
coin. He told me that the plot was
first laid in lSfil. I went at once to
Washington, and in a conference with
Mr. Lincoln warned him of what I had
learned. He told me that he was al
ready informed of the matter by Mr
Samuel F. U. Morse, the telegraph in
ventor. who had heard it by chance
while in Home. Mr. Morse was not a
"About a year afterward 1 convert

wear, but makes a written declara
tion. October It), 1SS3. duly signed,
saying that he told Conweil and Mr.
Bennett that he had hear this rumor
in Ola SlOre IlOm wuu mum in
and out; but he cannot reuiemuer
from whom." That lapse of memory
probably saved the landlord's tife. The
priests of St. Joseph we.e
of the plot to assassinate
Without a bingle exception the con
spirators were Roman Caihoi'c. It
is true that Atzeroth. Payne and Har
old asked for Protestant ministers
when they . '' be bung, but they
had been cons; lered Catholics till
then. John UiUes Booth was a
proselyte to ( ii 'niicisui, and w were
Atzeroth, Paie and HaroM. Put
had their f.u:i ' confessors appeared
with them on i:ie scaffold that would
have opened the eyes of the American
people to clearly see that the assassin
ation of Lincoln and Pewavd were
planned and executed by Jesuit p l s's
The murderers were instructed to con
ceal their religion. Such is the doe
trine of the Catholic church. St.
"'It is often more ti the glory of
Cod and the good of our neighbor to
conceal our religious faith, as when
we live among heretics we can more
easily do them good in that way; or
if by declaring our religion, we cause
some disturbance or deaths, or even
wratn of the tyrant.' Liguori
Theologia, li. XI
"Dr. Mudd. at whose place Booth
stopped in his tPght. was a Catholic
and so was Garrett, iu whoe barn
Booth was killed.
"After the murder Father C'.ilniquy
went to Washington in disguise. He
found that the influence of Koine at
the capital was almost supreme. The
only statesman who dared to face the
nefarious influence of Home was Cen.
Baker. But several other statesmen
confessed that without doubt the Jes
uits were at the bottom or the plot;
and sometMiie this would appear so
clearly in evidence before the mili
tary tribunal that it was feared it
could not be kept from the public. Mrs
Surratt was a Catholic, and her house
was the common rendezvous of the
"Booth, the assassin himself, was
confirmed in this very city of Balti
more. He was but the tool of the
Jesuits. He was taught by thein that I
the pope had called Jeff Davis his
dear son, and had taken the southern
confederacy under his protection. He
was taught that Lincoln was an apos
tate, that he bad been baptized in trie
Catholic, religion, had rebelled against
it and broken his oath of allegiance to
the pope. He was taught that it was
his religious duty to slay this Infa
mous enemy of bis ciiurcn.
'Compare other murders known to
have been plotted and executed by
Jesuits w'th this one and you will
find that they resemble each other as
one drop ot water resembles anouier.
Compare the last hours of the Jesuit,
Kavaillao, the assassin of Henry IV'.,
who absolutely refused to repent,
I hough suffering the most horrible
tortures on the rack, with Booth, who,
with an unset broken leg, the bone al
most puncturing the flesh, writes in
his dailv memorandum: '1 can never
repent, though we hated to kill. Our
country owed all its troubles to him
(Lincoln), and Cod simply made me
the instrument of his punishment
1 found that the influence of Home
was almost supreme in asinngion
Several of the government men with
whom I conversed told me that they
had not the least doubt that the Jesu
its were at the bottom of the crime
They were afraid to let the crime
come out lest the priests should be
imnlicated. and in the event of their
execution they knew that riots, blood
fire and devastations must follow, and
these the country, in its then divided
slate could not sustain.

a practically unrestricted immigra

criminals, diseased persons and con

restriction in the interest of the
American standard of wages and liv
ing, the educational test is indeed un
necessary and improper; but those
who admit that present restrictive
measures are inadequate are bound to
supply a better and fairer test than
that of ability to read and write, a
test so perfect as to exclude all un
worthy applicants and admit an
worthy ones. The champions of the
