LOUISVILLE, KY SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1912.
The wholesale distribution of the
peskr little A. P. A. sheet, the
Menace, has proved' a veritable
boomerang to the narrow-minded
bigots, who Imagined that there
would be Indignation mass meetings
on the part of Catholics, resulting In
an advertisement and an Increase In
their Ill-gotten gains. The Catholics
handed them over to their Protestant
friends, who are ashamed of the part
played by the editor, Rev. Theo. C.
Walker, who Is a cast-off minister
and who receives the munificent sum
of $12.60 per week for slandering
Catholics and their religion. Quite
on a par with Judas, who sold Christ
for thirty pieces of silver.
President" Taft has sustained
Secretary Fisher's action last Janu
ary In revoking the order of former
Indian Commissioner Valentine
barring religious garb or insignia
from Government Indian schoois.
The decision of the President is that
teachers now employed In Indian
schools may continue to wear the
garb of their religious orders; but
the privilege Is denied to any per
sons hereafter entering the service.
This ruling will enable the Govern
ment to fulfill its obligations, the
President says, to the teachers who
were taken into the Government
service when religious schools were
taken over bodily as Government
Institutions: Secretary Fisher holds
there Is no legal prohibition against
the employment of Government
teachers who wear religious dress,
and that opinion Is Indorsed by the
President. There are 2,000 teacher
In the Indian schools, only fifty-one
of whom wear religious garb.
t'LSTEIt'S SOLEMN COVENANT.
The New York World, not too
friendly to the Irish, disapproves
the policy of the enemies of home
rule and thus refers to the Orange-
Ulster Is greater than the Britisn
Parliament, Just as South Carolina
was once greater than the Congress
of the United States. It has drawn
up Its act of nullification. In solemn
covenant It pledges to refuse to
recognize home rule. The desperate
Dolitlclana who have Incited the
Irish Unionists to issue this formal
threat of civil war no doubt count
on great results when the home
rule bill is taken up again In the
House of Commons. They hope to
frighten the country and intimidate
the Government. Bonar Law, the
Unionist leader, and ' Sir Eflward
Carson, the former Attorney Gen
eral, have openly preached rebellion
to Ulster, and the solemn league and
covenant of the Irish Unionists is
the direct fruit of their efforts. To
, their former predictions of civil
strife they now add the threat of a
religious war. If bigotry and
fanaticism alone were at the bottom
of the anti-home rule demonstration
In Ulster Its leaders might be
excused though pitied, but the men
who have engineered it have delib
erately appealed to religious passion
and prejudice to further the end of
a political party. They are seeking
to create a atorm of religious Intol
erance, not In Ulster only but
throughout England, in order to
embarrass and discredit the Liberal
As the Presidential campaign
progresses between Wilson, Roose
velt and Taft the opinion is becoming
general everywhere that the people
nndoubtedly prefer the New Jersey
Governor for the high office to be
filled by the voters next November.
Wilson la a high type of American
and possesses all the qualifications
requisite In a candidate for the
Presidency. He Is cultured and prac
tical. He Is nearer the plain people
than Roosevelt and is more honest In
his arguments to them. He appeals
to their Judgment while Roosevelt
appeals to their passions. One Is
naturally a democrat while the other
Is a demagogue. One discusses the
tariff In a rational, business-like
way, while the other tries to throw
dust In their eyes by foolish state
. merits on a subject of which he
knows nothing accurately. Wilson
respects the courts and Congress,
Roosevelt does not, but aspires to be
a riar In a republic. Taft has suf
fered from his environment. Meaning
to do right, he has been controlled
and dominated by a powerful coterie
of politicians In whom the people
have lost all confidence. His political
days are numbered. Honest Repub-
Ucana everywhere, disgusted with
both Rosevelt and Taft, will vote for
Wilson In November.
Reviewing . the political situation
In the Empire State, the New York
World declares Senator O'Gorman Is
the only product of the 1910 victory
in New York .In which honest
Democrats can take genuine pride.
He has been an honor to his party
and an honor to the State. He has
not only been an admirable United
States Senator, but he has been a
clear-headed counsellor of pro
gressive Democracy. He Is the man
who should be the leader of the
Democratic party In New York. He
is a man who could give oack to
the organization the character and
intelligence it had in the days of
Seymour and Tllden.
Unless the people petition for them
the Hoard of Public Works should
not be so fast in approving railroad
switches and coal yards in the res
idential districts. The proposed
switch at Thirty-first and Chestnut
streets will be no Improvement to
that locality, and therefore it Is to
be hoped the General Council will
not disregard the protest of the
property owners who are affected.
Here's where we agree with the
Evening Post: "According to some
of the leading evangelists," It says,
"evangelism is degenerating Into
commercialism, but Judging from the
methods employed by a few of the
professionals, It is more on the
order of farce comedy."
The Wichita Catholic Advance is
to be congratulated upon the
excellence of its Cathedral dedication
number. It consisted of thirty-two
pages of carefully selected and Inter
esting matter and is a souvenir
worthy the diocese and city of
Catholic Advance makes this
by the company he keeps; a woman
bv the clothes she wears, and the
clothes she wears could be consld
erably enlarged and Improved with
out offending modesty."
T' n11! An tills and that. "If" I
get In, says the Colonel. But what
a pesky little stumbling block that
if" Is! It has made many supposed
great men sick to their stomachs.

you do you can't vote In the coming
