"Whercaa for the firat time b
the history of the United Ktatca
there haa been placed in the Capi
tal a atntue of ft man In the garb
of a churchman, aaid aLatue being
that of ft Jesuit, named Marquette,
who died in or about the year six
teen hundred and aeveuty-five, and
who ia referred to in the joint res
olution, ag reaaon for Accepting
the statue, as "the faithful mis
sionary j" and
"Whereas the Revised Statutes
of the United States, section eigh

"Whereaa the statue repreaent

habiliments and paraphernalia,
and otherwise entirely inappro
priate for' the position occupied
in Statuary Hall, thereby being
contrary to the intent of the joiut
resolution which provided for its
acceptance; Therefore
"Resolved by tbs Senate ftnd
House of Representatives of the
United States of America, in Con
gress assembled. That the plac

i not only without authority, but
ia direct violation of the law.
"Sec. 2. That said atatue be re
moved from the Capitol and re
turned to its donors.
Mr. Linton, in this speech, re
ferred to thia statue of Marquette
in the followiuR language:
"I know of the prepare that ia

cowl e.rd gown of a Jeatiit, with

give the Capitol the appearance
of complete cathedral ia to
change the exterior but alightly,
by removing the Uoddeaa of lib

"And this statue of a lealous
priest, who never knew the mean
ing of the precious word 'liberty,'
and never knew the name or even
dreamed of the great State he is
upIoaed to represent, haa this
day been placed, and we are in

of churchmsn in the Capitol,

American' (t), Cardinal Sstolli,
and other high dignitaries of his
church thia, I say, Father Ste
phan may consider a fitting time
for Congress to present the aohoola
of his faith with a quarter f a
million .dollars, but I do not;
neither do I believe this House is
in a temper to do it, and I there
tore aak the adoption of the
amendment 1 offer, which will
prevent a misappropriation r ef
publio moneys."
This speech and the publio ref
erence to the Marquette atatue
waa widely circulated, and pro
testa at once came to Congress.
The reasons set forth in these pe
titions, and otherwise, for its re
moval are as follows: ,
1. It is contrary to the pur
pose of the joint resolution ! of
t.ongress, setting apart Statuary
Mall as a memorial place. ;
2. It is not proper to place a
churchman in hia ritualaliatie garb
in the place aet apart for the civic
and military heroes, and in this
instance one whose services were
dedicated solely as a churchman
3. James Marquette had no ci
tizenship in. the United States,
neither any interest within Us ter
ritory other than for his church.
4. This person was a trained
obedient, and oath-bound to . rec
ognize and obey superiors "la his
frateroitv. and therefore came to
America tmiy as an obedient sub
ject, and t representative of a sys
tem antaguniytie to liberty asd
American freedom, and the resuha
of his self-sacrificing labors, if any
are worthy of special or honorable
mention, are the result of his ser
vility rather than hia free volllion.
5. The records show much im
probability aa to the worth of
(Marquette's Mississippi expedi
tion, aa Johet, the survivor, lost
their journal and all other papers
upon the Ottawa river, when re
turn in?.
6. Marquette did not discover
,t . a.
the JuHMssnmi, this honor being
uruveisauy acrreiuea to lwooio,
in 1541, a hundred and thirty-two
years before.

The pejitioners to Congrens
prayed for the non-acceptance of
the statue and its return to tt
eonain, or at least its removal from
Statuary HalL The petitioned
were ignored in the Senate in July,
1896, by the vote tf the Senators
sccepting it, not one dissenting,
so fsr as the record shows. The
protests delayed action upon the
part of the House of Reprcaenta
tives, and niembera who are
frienda of thia measure are await
ing, doubtless, the softening influ
ences of time.
And there stands this Jesuit
statue, to thia day; a perpettiHl
disgrace, a dishonor to the patriot
ism, of a free people, and a dem
onstration of the power of the hie

the interest of the Roman -Catho

TO TUB RESCUE OF CLARK.
The Menace will never prevent
to ita readers an appeal for finan
cial assistance for anything or
anybody whom it does not abso
lutely know to be worthy. " Not
even then will it do so without
giving the facta in full and mak
ing a clean, clear cut accounting
of the entire transaction.
You are all aware of the results
of the trial of Wn. Lloyd Clark
You have been informed of his
financial condition and hia inabil
ity to face thia Roman perseeu
tkm aingle handed and alone.
These things having been clearly
brought to the attention of our
readers, hundreds of them have
solicited us to start a campaign
for funds with which to help Mr.
Clark carry hia case to the court
of Last reaort. The letter printed
below ia a sample of many re
ceived and shows the mood of Our
friends. We wish we could print
them all, but space forbids:

In response to this sentiment
The Mensce will start the ball to
mlling by making a donation of
2.V0O itself and asking all ita
friends and supporter to do whst
they can. We do not want do
nations, and we are sure Mr.
Clark would not, from people who
ew in close circumstancea them
selves. There are enough people
in easy circumstancea who read
this psper to donate a fund am
ply sufficient. A correct report
of the receipts will be published
each week and if you do not wish
ft ha yair came appr in print
in connection with the contribu
tion, say so in your letter with the
remittance and it will be withheld,
but the amount will be publiahed
and a complete accounting of the
whole transaction, will be made.
Send all remittances to this fund
to The Menace and be . sure to
write your name and address
plainly, but remember thst your
name will be withheld if you only
t eqnest it. Let us make a respee
table ahowing at once.
Keep your places clean and con
duct your buaineaa on as high a
moral standard as the grocery or
dry goods business. There ia no
reason why the saloon keeper
should not oecupy as high a place
in the community as any other
tradesman.' Thua spoke Father
Maurice J.' Dorney, a Catholic
(ricst of Chicago, addressing the
iquor dealers of the stock yards
recently.
In ita constant, obstinate, stren
uous endesvor to acquire govern
ment of . the State, the Roman
Catholic church in Austria ia pa
tiently working to obtain control
of and bring into subjection the
conscience of the people. The
Church is well aware thst its do
minion? over the wealth or politics
Of a nation haa no power except
with the submissive acquiescence
of its subjects. Therefore sup
ported by the enormous wrslth of
the War Treasury it is adopting
a tacit but immense spiritual pro
f rsmme of propaganda and seeks
td gsther around itself a gigantic
array of faithful subjects who will
assist in the struggle for dominion
over the Austrian empire.

With the three new apKint
ments the t'nited Statea' repre
sentation will equal that of any
other country in the world with
the exception of Italy and Spain.
I looking into history, however, one
can ae the reasons for the pope
wuhiug to strengthen his position
in America.
In the first plsce it haa been
whispered in Koman circles that
(libbona haa reached hia dotage.
and it is generally known that,
from the atandpoint of the Komaq
hierarchy, he haa made seversl
politicsl blunders which could
have been averted by more active
minds, to say nothing of his in
ability to cope with the growing
anti-Roman sentiment in this coun
try. m
Rumor hsa it afloat- for some
time thst at least two, if not three,
new rardinala would be named at
the coming consistory, and the
public press bss assured us t from
time to time that one of the red
hsts would tnokt certainly fsll to
Archbishop Ireland, of St. FauL
Hut not ao. And, in the language
of llattle Creek 1'ost, "there's a
resson."
It will be remembered by those
who have observed Catholie his
tory, thst several years ago there
sprang np,' under the teaching of
Father Isaac Thomas Hecker, a
"converted Proteatsnt ' an idea
of "modernism" so-called, woich
created in the minda of the iin-
w ary the belief that American Ro
man Catholicism waa progressive
and in sympathy with American
institutions and ideas. Archbish
op Ireland embraced these ideas,
aa also, to some extent did Carui
nsl (iibbons. This took place un
der the reign of Leo XIII., as
pope, and what happened to Ire
land and " modern 1am" is in all
history ao plainly written that
"he who runs may read."
Gibbons was severely ess till
ed by letters aid other messages
from the holy see, bat' Ireland,
whose offense seema to havi been
more intolerable to the pope, was
actually called to Rome and made
to "face the muaie" in person.
In a letter to Gibbons under
dste of January 22, 1699, the pope
calls the cardinal to taw on his
modernism, and in the course of
his remarks nses the following
expressions which will reassure
the most skeptical thst Romanism
ia (Semper et nbique eadem)
everywhere and alway the same:
"It Is knows to 70a. beloved son,
that th llf of Isaac Thomas Hecker,
especially aa Interpreted and trans
lated In a foreign Unsuax. baa ex
cited not a ttttl controversy, because
therein bar been voiced certain opin
ions eonoemlng th way of leading a
Christian llf. The underlying
principle of these new opinions U
that th rhurcB ahould regard the
spirit of th ag aad relax eom of
her ancient severity, and make eom
concession to new opinions. TheJ
doctrine cf faith , which God baa re
vealed baa not been proposed, like
a philosophical Invention, to be per
fee led by human Inrenalty, but baa
been delivered aa a dlvln dpoalt to
th Spouse of Christ, to be faithfully
kept and Infallibly declared. Hence
that meaning of the sacred dogmas
la perpetually to be retained which
our Holy mother, the chnrrti. baa
once declared, nor la that meaning
ever to be departed from voder the
pretena or pretext of a deeper com
prrhensloa of them." The pop then
concludes: "From the foregoing It
la manifest,' belovel son. that we are
not able to give approval to thoae
views which, la their collective ns.
ar called by some 'Aa-inrlcanlsm.'
For It would glv rta to th suspi
cion thst ther ar arosng yo some
ho conceive and OSVd bav th
rhurcb la America to be different
from whst it ta la th ml f tb
world. But th church I one,"
Thia waa sufTirient, of course,
to put a quietus on Gibbons snd
esuse him to abandon forthwith
whatever ideas of "modernism"
he might have entertained. At
the time Gibbona was diresting

From that time to the present,
Ireland haa been good, but it's
dangerous to rik a transgressor,
thinks the pope, and therein lies
the reason for Ireland's failure to
receive the red hat.
The pope is conducting a cru
sade to capture America for the
Koman chureh, and he roust have
trained warriors and politicians,
men who hsv never been known
to desert, and on whom he tan
rely. Thst this addition of pomp
snd extension of power will render
more speetacilsr the conquest or
America there cun be no doubt,
but just what fighting strength,
politically, ia to be gained remains
to be seen.

to put in a council at Aurora aa

there. That the Junior Order
stands for something more than
an ordinary ritualistic p roars m is
evidenced from their declaration
