A NEW HOLY ALLIANCE
Mr. Schwelzer Quotes From th Verona
' Articles of 1823 and Explains
, ; There can be no doubt that the Eu
ropean ' monarchs have again insti
tuted a new holy allianee and that our
government, with the purchase of the
Philippine islands, . secretly . entered
that alliance. To prove that asser
tion we need only to judge its acts and
compare, them with the articles ac
cepted by the holy alliance at a con
gress held at Verona' in 1822, which
. reads: '.'The undersigned, specially
authorized to make some additions to
the treaty of the holy alliance, have
, agreed as follows:
Art I.- The high contracting pow
; ers, being convinced that the system
of representative government is equal
ly incompatible with the monarchical
: principles as ' the maxim of the sov
. ereignty of the people, with divine
- right engage mutually to use all the
.efforts to put an end to the system
' of representative government in what
ever country it may - exist in Europe
' and to prevent its being introduced in
those countries where it is not yet
Art II As it cannot be doubted
that' the liberty of the press is the
most powerful means used by the pre
. tended supporters of the rights of the
nation, the high contracting parties
.promise reciprocally to adopt all prop
er measures to suppress it, not only in
their own state, but also in the rest
This article of the secret agreement
of the European -monarchs accounts
for the, carnage in China, South Africa
and th. Philippine islands.; for our
supplying .England with horses and
mules to subjugate the heroes of the
Transvaal' republics; for giving Ger
many and England free hand in the
. South American republics which is a
., violation of the Monroe doctrine,
which was expressly adopted as a pro
test and protection against the holy
alliance; for the suppression of free
thought, free speech and free press by
our executive through Assistant Post
master General Madden; for subordi
nating and putting our educational
system under control of clergies; for
cutting every family tie, even crippling
and killing the child in the mother's
womb, by our inhuman,; barbarous la-
bor system;, for the inhuman .and cruel
treatment of our laborers, especially
''"in "sweat-shops, factories, coal mines.
Idaho iull, pen; for subjugating this
. people under the dominion of the pope.
All these acts are only the effect of
a well deliberated tyrannical system,
the executors of a secret order of the
holy alliance with the pope as its spir
itual head, because divine rights of
kings can only be granted "and sus
tained by an infallible pope as the rep
resentative of God on earth.
Bismarck made a great mistake or,
as we-common people say, he mcrde a
fool of himself, when he commenced
the Cultur Kampf. Without divine
right, William I. was only the Kan
tatschen prince and the butcher of
Rastatt, for the German people,, espe
cially for Catholic priests, who at that
time never called him by another
name. As soon as Birmarck had found
out that he was only too glad to ac
knowledge the supremacy of the pope
by submitting to his decision in the
dispute over the Caroline islands and
accepting the order of Christ to wear
. it na a tnhan nf VUKSJlllfl fTfl tfl thft T)OT)e.

whereof William I. was endowed with
the divine right of a emperor and re
ceived full indulgence for slaughtering
patriotic people, who defended their
liberty and right of self-government
and for the butchering at Rastatt,
where he killed defenseless persons,
the noblest patriots of Baden, without
allowing them a trial.
.v The church .can right any wrong
and grant indulgence for auy crime,
and riq. people can buy it at fixed
prices and giving tithes from their
plunder. A"railroad company in Min
nesota made a" land claim in a well
."settled country, but when the roal
owners protested and the railroad
' company had found out that the sec-
'r'etary of the interior would declare
their claim as void, they sold it' to
; Archbishop Ireland, which made that
'land the sacred property of the church
' fend that sanctimonious bishop evicted
all. those settlers, who refused to sub
mit and accept his usurer's terms;
and hot long ago the supreme court
declared his title perfect. That's the
wav divine rights are created.
Now you sanctimonious Christian
: gentlemen of altar, throne, money bag,
and press, what do you think that
Christ would say to your acts? I be
lieve he would only repeat what he
once said, to some gentlemen of your
kind; it is recorded St. Matthew,
XXIII. 13, and reads: Woe, unto you.
