Every reader of Thk American will
be filled with regret at the announce
ment of the death of Elder H. W. Bow
man, notice of which we have just re
ceived from hi wife who 1 now living
In East Los Angeles, Cal. Elder Bow
man has been in poor health for some
time but none ot his friends anticipated
his early dissolution. When we met
him a year ago he was not In the best
of health but we thought he had years
of usefulness before him. But it seems
his life-work was completed April 30th,
for the silent reaper east hi sickle to
the earth and the soul of Elder Bowman
was one of those he reaped. The de
ceased was one of the best known pa
triots in the country, having edited
patriotic papers, lectured against Ro
manism and contributed columns of
sharp, incisive paragraphs to this and
other papers. By his death the cause
of anti-Romanism sustains a loss that
it may never be able to fill. With the
thousands of patriots who read this
announcement ot his death we mourn
with his widow in her hour of bereave
ment. May his reward be a part in
the kingdom of God.
Krcrnt press dipJtihe s from Washington convey to us the
information that certain Roman Catholic priests, and certain
jm-inWrs of the Roman Otitholie order of the Society of Jesus
commonly called the Jesuits, have been appointed to positions
in the army and navy.
Wc cannot place implicit reliance in the press dispatches,
hut, assuming that in this instance they are reliable, we will
point out to President McKiuley that which may have escaped
his attention or which may never have been submitted for his
The first is that Roman Catholics, and especially the priests
and Jesuits, owe primary allegiance to the pope of Rome in
Leo XIII in an encyclical dated January io, 1890, specifi
cally stated that where the laws of the state conflict with the
laws of the church the laws of the church are to be unhesitating
ly obeyed that it is a crime to disobey the pope. And each
priest in the United States has sworn in part: "In the
presence of Almighty God, the blessed Virgin Mary, the blessed
Michael the Archangel, the blessed St. John the Kaptist, the
Holy Apostles St. Peter and St. Paul and the Saints and the
Sacred Hosts of Heaven, and to you, my lord, I do declare from
my heart, without mental reservation that the pope is Christ's
vicar-general arid is the true and only head of the universal
church throughout the earth, and that, by virtue of the keys of
binding and loosing given to his holiness by Jesus Christ HIi
HAS POWKR TO DKPOSK HKRKTICAI, KINGS,
PRINCKS, STATICS, COMMONWEALTHS AND GOVERN
MENTS, AM, PHING ILLEGAL WITHOUT HIS SACRED
CONFIRMATION, and that they may safely be DESTROYED.
Therefore, to the utmost of my power, I will DEPEND THIS
DOCTRINE and his holiness' rights and customs against all
usurpers of the Protestant authority whatsoever, especially
against the now pretended authority of the church in England
and all adherents, in regard that they be usurpal and heretical,
opposing the sacred mother of the church of Rome.
" I DO DENOUNCE AND DISOWN ANY ALLEGIANCE
AS DUE TO ANY PROTESTANT KING, PRINCE OR
STATIC OR OHEDIENCE TO ANY OP THEIR INFERIOR
OFFICERS. I do further declare the doctriue of the church of
England, of the Calvinists, Huguenots and other Protestants, to
be damnable and those to be damned who will not forsake the
"I do further declare that I will help, assist and advise all
or any of his holiness' agents in any place whatever I shall be,
and to do my utmost to extirpate the Protestant doctrine and to
destroy all their pretended power, legal or otherwise."
Col. Kd win A. Sherman's book, " The Engineer Corps of
Hell," contains something startliug. It is the extreme oath of
the Jesuit. Col. Sherman is a 33" Mason and President McKiu
ley is a Mason and as a Mason we call his attention to the diaboli
cal and treasonable oaths which have been assumed by the
priests and the Jesuits of the Roman Catholic church in the
United States, and we unhesitatingly brand every man who has
assumed those oaths who are now in the government service or
who are seeking positions therein, as spies and traitors.
The extreme oath of the Jesuit given in Col. Sherman's
book, besides containing all quoted above in the priest's oath,
has the following damnable declarations:
" I do further promise and declare that I WILL HAVE NO
OPINION OR WILL OF MY OWN or any mental reservation
whatsoever, even as a corpse or cadaver (perinde ac cadaver),
but will UNHESITATINGLY OBEY EACH AND EVERY
COMMAND that I may receive from MY SUPERIORS IN
THE MILITIA OF THE POPE and of Jesus Christ.
That I will go to any part of the world whatsoever I may be
sent, to the frozen regions of the north, the burning sands of the
desert of Africa, or the jungles of India, to the centers of civili
zation of Europe, or to the wild haunts of the barbarous savages
of America, without murmuring or repining, and will be sub
missive in all things whatsoever, communicated to me.
I do furthermore promise and declare that I WILL, when
opportunity presents, MAKE AND WAGE RELENTLESS
WAR, secretly or openly, AGAINST ALL HERETICS, Prot
estants and Liberals as I am directed to do, TO EXTIRPATE
THEM FROM THE FACE OF THE WHOLE EARTH, and
that I will spare neither age, sex or condition, and that
I WILL HANG, BURN, WASTE, BOIL, FLAY, STRANGLE
AND BURY ALIVE THESE INFAMOUS HERETICS; RIP
OPEN THE STOMACHS AND WOMBS OF THIER WOMEN
AND CRUSH THEIR INFANTS' HEADS AGAINST THE
WALLS in order to annihilate their execrable race. That
when the same cannot be done openly, I WILL SECRETLY
USE THE POISONOUS CUP, THE STRANGULATING
CORD, THE STEEL OF THE POINARD, OR THE LEADEN
BULLET, regardless of the HONOR, RANK, DIGNITY OR
AUTHORITY OF THE PERSON OR PERSONS, whatever
may be their condition in life, EITHER PUBLIC OR PRI
VATE, AS I AT ANY TIME MAY BE DIRECTED SO TO DO
BY ANY AGENT OF THE POPE OR SUPERIOR OF THE
BROTHERHOOD OF THE HOLY FATHER, of the SOCIETY
In confirmation of which I hereby dedicate my life, my soul
and all corporal powers, and with this dagger which I now re
ceive, I will subscribe my name, written in my blood, in testi
mony thereof: and should I prove false or weaken in my deter
mination, may my brethren and fellow soldiers of the militia of
the pope cut off my hands and my feet, and my throat from ear
to ear, my belly opened and sulphur burned therein, with all the
punishment that can be inflicted upon me on earth and my soul
1 be tortured by demons in an eternal hell forever. "
Such, President McKinley, are the obligations assumed by-
some men whom you have appointed to positions, positions
where they can be of the utmost service to your country's ene
mies and of the most dreadful consequences to the brave men
who have offered their lives in defense of this government.
The men who have taken those obligations will know every
detail the number of your troops, their location, their orders,
your coast defenses, the numlter of stands of arms, amount of
supplies, munitions, etc., and even your intended moves. What
they know, Martinelli, Ireland, Gibbons, Corrigan, and Fitz
gerald will know, and what they know the Jope, through a
special, trusted messenger, and the General of the Jesuits, will
know in Rome; and what the pope knows his agents in Spain,
in Austria, in Germany, in France, in Portugal, in the whole
Roman Catholic world will know sufficiently, and le instructed,
to do all in their power to deprive this country of its "PRE-
TENDED POWER, LEGAL OR OTHERWISE."
In a former editorial we called your attention to the fact
that if there was a leak from any department at Washington, it
could in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred be traced to a Roman
Catholic. We reassert that, and add to it the charge that the
so-called Spanish spies will use the priests of Rome as go be
tweens, and Spain will receive ALL HER RELIABLE INFOR
MATION FROM THIS COUNTRY THROUGH CHAN
NELS CONTROLLED BY THE VATICAN, to which point
it will be carried by special Jesuit messengers.
It does not seem possible that the President is not fully in
formed as to the aims and objects of the Church of Rome, or as
to the means it will employ to attain the coveted end, yet he
may be. Equally as great men have been misled for a time by
the false pretences, the lying promises and the treachery and
trickery that goes to make up Jesuit or papal diplomacy, and he
may now be completely hoodwinked, but he is sure to get his
eyes open in the end, and when he does we pledge him the un
divided support of every loyal, patriotic man who assumed the
A. P. A. obligation. Until that time the unthinking may go to
war with priests to be betrayed and delivered to the enemy.

Protestauts who put any confidence in Romish protestations of

We believe this war is foretold in the Scriptures and that it
will lead up to and end in the great battle of Armageddon. The
Book of Revelations describes Rome so plainly that there is no
opportunity for a reading, thinking man to be mistaken.
FOR GOD'S SAKE, MR. McKINLEY, BOW NOT TO
THE PAPAL BEAST. BE FAITHFUL IN A FEW, THAT
HE MAY MAKE YOU RULER OVER MANY THINGS
WHEN HE COMES IN HIS POWER AND HIS GLORY.
Is it necessary for the Pope to issue a procla
mation before the Roman adherent knows
whether he can be loyal to a country or not?
Must Loyalty to the Church take precedence
over Loyalty to the Country? If so, how can a
Roman be depended upon as a Loyal Subject?
If the Roman Pontiff has the RIGHT to say
to a subject you be Loyal " to a Country, has
he NOT the same RIGHT to compel the Roman
subject to be disloyal?
Ought our government to appoint a Roman
subject to any place of Trust, or have such with
in their confidence, when they the Romans owe
first allegiance to the Pope; particularly when
the Roman Pontiff has been and is now giving
all the aid he possibly can to Spain?
These are pertinent questions for the loyal
officers of the American Government, to fully
consider before they are betrayed by the Romans
and the blood of our young Americans is need
lessly spilled through Spanish Roman treachery.

A HEARTLESS JUDGE.
The story is circulated that a certain
judge who i cot often charged wt-.h
ingratitude, bu fallen into that tin.
It ii said that a certain per kid holding
office by appointment of a board of
j idgts, bought a large number of treea
paying for them with public money.
Said official out of the bigness of hi
heart tendered one of those judge a
number of those same trees, and offered
to have them planted by men paid by
the public. ThU all happened a few
werks previous to the expiration of
said official' term, he was then a can
didate for re-ekct'on. Now who could
believe it, but really this same judge
was heartless enough to refuse to cast
bis vote for said kind-hearted official's
re-election!! Now the question is, what
can a fellow do wheD he wants that
judge's vote? Can't someone find out
Mike Davitt calls on the 25,000,000
Americans of Irish blood to resist any
attempt at an alliance between Ameri
can and Great Britain. Don't get ex
cited Mike. There are hardly one
tenth that number of Americans with
Irish blood in their veins, but, be they
few or many, they must not interfere
with the plans of the government not
at this time they must be loyal, and
no foreign bog-trotter will be allowed
to work up dissatisfaction even among
the ignorant Irish Roman Catholics
against a country that is at peace with
us. The Irish are born traitors and if
their priests don't lead them gradually
to the defense of Spain It will surprise
nine out of every ten Protestants.
Ex-Park Commlssbner Tukey suc
ceded in getting the dally papers to
declare that he could not accept his
old job even if re elected. Tukey came
to this conclusion only after he found
that he could get only two votes from
the electing board of judges. We are
reminded of Pat who declared he would
no longer work for his old employer,
giving as a reason that " Me boss said
'Pat you're discharged.' "
A well-known London paper says:
"Jesuits control the French army, and
some regiments of the British army
are composed entirely of Roman Cath
olics. Who can assure us that exigen
cies may not arise in which this may
prove a very serious affair?" And how
about Romanist regiments in the U. S.
army? They owe supreme allegiance
to the pope. Boston Citizen.
If the pope says he wished he had
not lived to see the day that Manila
fell from the hands of the Spanish into
the hands of the Americans, and if the
priests and nuns of the Spanish hospit
als at Cavite, tried to have the Ameri
can fleet blown up, by sending it thro1
a channel which had been mined,
should not the American people look
upon Martinelli as a papal, pro-Spanish
spy, because of his being the pope's
representative, although not officially
The Next Move.
Now is the time for the Roman Cath
olic clergy In the United States to sever
their relations with the pope and form
their own denomination. When the
clergy voted on the infallibility of the
pope, many of the delegates from the
United States were opposed to the pro
posed Innovation, and if they had voted
according to their idea of right, would
have voted against this doctrine. Now
since the part of that denomination In
the United States is strong enough to
take charge of the work here they
should tell the pope they will not
trouble him in regard to the manage
ment of the affairs here. Mart.
