issued to tho councils of the order

in his circular that u largo number of

uniform ranks of benelit societies ex
cept to debar them fiom dill ling with,
carrying or keeping llrcarnis.
Mr, Traynor icviows presidential
possibilities and attaeks President
Cleveland in these words:
"It is doing no injustice to Mr.
Cleveland to assert that, If the Pulled
States hail been a papal country anil
tho pope u temporal sovereign, our
president could not have given mora
iccognltlon to tho papacy as u tem
poral power than ho has during his
present term of olllce, commencing
with his obsequious present of a mag
uillcently bound edition of the Ameri
can constitution to the pope and con
cluding with the disgraceful promotion
of Colonel Copplnger. who is worthy
of notice only, and that notoriously,
as a fervent adherent of the pope of
Home anil an ardent admirer of papal
institutions, two facts sutllcicnt in
themselves to eternally debar 111 i i
