might appear to be Justice In manr cases
does not always conform to the laws of

KCMBsa of prospective candidates
are In the field for United Slates Senator
te lucceed Hon. H. B. -Payne, whose
time eiplies ilarcn 4th. 1801. Calvin
Brice, a moneyed klag, who claims to be
a resident of Lima, Is now In the lead.
This Is not our time to select a Senator,
consequently we can have bat little to
ley, but for the interest ol the people of
the Bute we claim the right to say a
word. Mr. Brice is a so Called shrewd
money making fellow, but aside from
that he stands as a cipher ; so tar as filling
the position at Senator he knows nothing
about Sute matters except what his
money purcalmses him and we have no
reason to belli; ve that tho more sensi
ble Democrats will entirely ignore even
the piospect of such men to reach the
place. Hon. Geo. E. Seney ot Tiffin bat

At the recent meeting held at Batimore
by the Catholics, the Rev. Mr. Dunne of
Florida, Mild: "Cntliollct know that they
must lit their childnn for en immortal
life, and because ot thit they demand
equal rights In the applications of the
means God has furnished lor that pur
poe. A denominational system would
not work well. Why not? It works well
elsewhere; why nut beret And the
present godlesa system, does that work
well ? A syttem which In a Christian
land forbldt Christian teaching. Is
that not a disgrace, a scandal to the world,
a mockery of free Institutions, a failure of
republican government? The monarchies
of Europe show more regard lor human
rights." What monarchies In Europe, at
least where Romanism dominates? This
Is an aim at the Public school funds. It
showi that some of them sre determined
to have the amount of funds that they pay
into the Treasury returned to them lo aid
In keeping up the parochial schools.
8uch declarations only have a tendency to
add fuel to the flames, and the qnestion
will doubtless, sooner or later, bare to be
settled. If one denomination Is en
titled to a share of the school lunds!
others will claim the tame right and
where will it end?
Jcdgb Andkrsox, of Salt Lake City,
Utah, rendered a lengthy and well framed
decision Saturday against the members ol
the Uormon Church, who had taken the
endowment , bouse oaths, becoming
citizens ol the United State.
"Ia his decision be . states - the
ground t hit tippotitloa to the admission
of such )Jj11omoU to be that the Mormon
church Uarul always has beea a treason
able oriuilzatlon In Ita teachings and In
Its practices hostile lo the government of
the United Stales, disobedient to Ita laws
and seeking Its overthrow, and that the
oath administered to its tnemhera In tha
endowment . Loute blodt , them , under
penalty of death to Implicit obedience In
all thirds temporal, at well as spiritual, to
the priesthood arid to avenge the death of
the prophets. Joseph and Hiram Smith,
upon the government a-id the people of
the United : HiNtes. The objections to the
tight of there applicants to be admitted to
citizenship Introduced eleven witnesses
who had been members of the- Mormon
church.-, , Several of ihef wit newt had
held Hi"' ;t't itlon uf bishop In the church
and all Ul gmie through the endowment
hotwo uud iiirUuiiuU'U lo ha ceremonies.
The 'tffthmwy of ; these wlu.csait. was to
the elt'f it thai every' mnmhef ; of ' the
, cburclu iin'ct4 to , K1) through the nv
dowment bouse and (hat nearly all do to,
that marriages are usually solemnized
there and that those who are married else
where go through the endowment house
ceremonies at at early a date thereafter as
practicable In order that marital relation
shall continue throughout eternity. It
was further shown that these ceremonies
occupy the greater pat t of a day and In
clude the taking of aa oath, obligation or
covenant by each that be or the, as the
case may be, will avenge the blood of the
prophet, Joseph and Hiram Smith, spoa
tha government of the United States and
will enjola this obligation upon bit or her
children Into the third and fourth genera,
lions i that be ot aba will obey the priest
hood ia all things and will never reveal
the secrets of the endowment house under
penalty of having their throats cut from
ear to ear, their bowels torn out and their
hearta cut out of their bodies. The right
arm Is annotated that it may be strong to
avenge the blood of tha prophets. 1
After reciting tho teachings ot tha Mor
mon church at length, the Judge said: "It
bat always been and still It the policy of
thit government to encourage aliens who
Jn good faith come to reside In tills
country to become citizens. But when a
man of foreign birth comet here and Joint
an organization although professedly re
hgioua, which require of him an alleg
iance paramount to hit allegiance to the
government, an organization that im
piously claims to be the kingdom of God,
to control ita members under hit Immedi
ate direction, and yet teaches and
practices a system of morals shocking to
Christian people everywhere, H It time lor
the courts to pause and inquire whether
such men at applicant! should be ad
mitted to citizenship. The evidence in
this case established unquestionably that
the teachings, practices and purposes ol
the Mormon Church are antagonistic to
the government of the United States, ut
terly subversive of good morals and the
well being ot society, and that its mem
bers are animated by a leellng of hostility
to the government and Ita laws, therefore
aa alien whe ia a member of said Church
it not a Bt person to be made a citizen ol
the United States." J '. ?,; ,
, Tha Judge's declilon should meet with
the hearty approval ot every true citizen
of the United Bute.' A majority of these
people may be acting ia good faith, but
as linM rolls on they should take meas
ure to seek sufficient light to enable
them to become law abiding citizens fo
the government In which they live. I
