oin safely give refuge and welcome to
other millions on the same terms, but
on Uo other. The sore point with
Cahensly seems to be that a portion of
the Americanized Catholics drift away
from the church. This may or may
not be true, but if true the remedy
niUBt be sought In eomo other direc
tion. It is the glory of the American
Republic that it tolerates all religions.
The foreign Cathollo has tho eame un
molested right of faith and form of
worship us tho native Protestant, and
will continue to have. This is as far
as religious toleration can go. More
should not be asked. If Catholicism
fails to hold Its own under euch con

the American Government that its

the term implies. Thosu -w ho have
come here with any other intent or
purpose should return whence they
came and if any contemplate Immi
gration with the purpose of remaining
foreigners after they come they should
abandon their intention. They are
not wanted and will not be welcomed.
This condition is vital and will be In
sisted on. The proposal of Herr
Cahensly is squarely antagonistic, to
this vital essential, In spite of his la
bored and twisted logic to prove the
"Fortunately tho Pope is a wiser
than than Herr Cahensly, and has
signified his intention to refuse the
latter's petition. This should set at
rest all fears of danger from the ex
istence of a perpetual foreign popula
tion in our midst. The Germans,
Italians, Poles and others who con
tinue to come to our shores will
continue in tho future, as in the past,
to lose their nationality and become
Americans. The Catholic authorities
will encourage them to do this, and
will frown upon all propositions to the
contrary. Thero is no more loyal
American In America than Cardinal
Gibbons, and his suggestions will
doubtless continue to have greater
weight with the Papal Bee than those
of a score of foreign Cahenslys."

Editor IIkkald : "Our Band" mado a
groat mistake in giving their concert on
tho east sido of Main streot, as the wind is
invariably in tho went and northwest and
thereby wafts tho strains of music against
tho building, producing a flat, instoad ot a
sharp sound. I would suggost that tho
next concert bo given from tho awning on
tho northwest comer of Main and Contro
streets, if permission is given by the pro
prietors of tho building. I would also
suggest that ono concort be givon this sea
son from tho roof of a throe story building,
soraowhoro in the center of tho town. My
reasons for thij is that by its height abovo
othor buildings, tho strains of musio would
ba wafted to all parts of tho town, and
mothors and invalids would bo delighted
by it, as thoro are hundreds of such in tho
town who cannot loava homo to attond tho
regular concorts. Music for tho people is
what wo want.

booms in similar places, that if tho sontl

begins to move is tho moment to put
ovory shoulder to tho wheel and give it a
strong pU3h, a long push, and a push alto
Ono special suggostion may bo oppor
tune. A frequent method of inducing
manufacturers to locato in a placo is to
offer ihem some valuable advantage) at the
outset. Tho purchase of a site, tho orec
tlon of a building, tho equipment with
machinory, tho purchaso of stock for be
ginning, and similar first steps in a manu
facturing ontorpriso, constiluto a costly
move. No wondor that with such outlay
confronting thorn men proceed cautiously,
young firms especially, searching dis
criminatingly beforo sticking stakes, Tho
sympathy and substantial aid of a com
munity aro helpful at this juncturo. A
small advantage will tip the scales just now
and plant tho factory in a particular town.
A little Indifforonco and selfishness on tho
part of officials and loading citizens sends
tho incipient ontorpriso to the next town to
locato. A call from tho assessor and col
lector aro tho firo is built under tho boilor
is rather ungracious, and a complaint
against the factory as a nuisance bofore tho
cornor-stono is laid is promaturo. Nor is
tho "walk-into-my-parlor" policy of the
spidor a good ono for a town ; "oloh 'ora
first, fleoco'om aftorwards" don't pay.
Tho writer knows a firm of carriage man
ufacturers now aoircoly sooond to any in
tho world, who wanted to set up in a cer
tain town. But on proposing to buy a
plot if ground favorable to their purposes,
part if which wasownod by tho town and
part by privato partios, tho price was held
s 1 high as to driyo the manufacturers to a
neighboring town whero tbo free use of a
plot for a term of twenty years was gen
erously accordod thom. Tho former town,
then tho larger of tho two, Is etill a sloppy
village and tho high-pricod plot is a cow
pasture, while tho groat factory has been
tho chiof agont in transforming the smaller
vlllago Into a rich and thriving city.
Another case, known to the writer, Is
6uggolivo : A man owned six acres of
land at one ond of a straggling littlo city
IIo laid thom off in lots and for several
years tried in vain to tell them, but'ho did
not roalizo onough to pay tho taxes. Fi
nally, ho donated two acies to a company
en condition that thoy os'ahlish a factory
to omploy fifty hands. Tbo factory was
startod and within twelve months my
friend had sold tho balano? of his lots, on
somoof which ho had erected cottages, and
pocketed a clear PS.0QO.
Thero Is, that saves at tho spigot and
wastes at the bung. Now Shonandoah hat
a good deal of vaoant torritury, sltmted
most desirably for manufacturing plants.
Cannot a company bo organized among
our moneyed men who can obtain control
of some of this territory and offer,
gratuitously or nearly so, building sites to
manufacturers who will locato and operate
in am. town? Aro thero not several
individuals who can do the same? Cannot
tho town also grant Immunity from taxes
to such for a term of years 1 K so, let tbo
fact bo at once widely advartlwd, so as to
ranch the notice of parlies who may be on
the watch for Just such an opportunity.
What others have done we can do.
