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 ditions the faults does not lie in re publican institutions. It Is essential to tho perpetuity of the American Government that its citizens shall be Americans in all that 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 contrary. "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.

The Llatonor's Notes of Current Commont Intorostlnsly Col umnlzad Readablo and Pitny Paragraphs. Editor IIkralu: Your remarks in recent Issues In relation to securing a healthy boom to our town havo beon ex ceedingly suggestive and valuable. It scorns porfectly cloar to a lookor-on, some what familiar with successful and enduring booms in similar places, that if tho sontl mfnt and enthusiasm of tho Evknijjo Mkuald aro shared by tho citizens gen erally, great pro-perily is not prophotlc. hut assured. When tho car of progross 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 gether. 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. 1'ROOItKSBlVK Ruenandoah, July " lN'd.
