At least that has been the criterion of the past. In the halcyon days, when Tun Menace had a million and a half circulation, a third of that circu lation was in the state of Pennsyl vania, and a third of Pennsylvania's circulation was in the city of Pittsburgh. That ratio doesn't prevail now, but it did four years ago. An entirely new indication as to where tho interest of the move ment is most strongly centered is shown in the contributions to Tho Menace Debt Fund from the va rious states, a complete list of which is above given. In this case Illinois heads the Dr. E. J. Fithian, of Pa., Up From the Ranks Dr. Fithian was bom on a notable day, July 1st, 1863, the day the, Bat tle of Gettysburg; broke out in its fierceness which practically decided the fate of the Union. His father was a cabinet maker by trade, but when machine manufacturing; of fur niture began, he moved from Porters ville, where the candidate was born, to Martinsburg, now Bruin, and later to Rams' City, both in Butler county, where he engaged m the furniture and undertaking business. At 12 years of age the boy was painting furniture and at 14 was making sleds for boys and driving his Mother's de livery wagon. In his 16th year he attended public school for his last term and acted as janitor, as a side issue, taking care of the Presbyterian church, the First National bank, and the school house, earning (20.00 per month outside or school hours. The next year was spent as clerk in a store. From 18 to 28 years of age he worked at car pentry and house-building work dur ing the summers and attended Grove City college in the winter time. He received the degrees of A.B. and A.M. from Grove City and in 1892 graduated from the West Tenn Med ical college. He then' married and settled down to the practice of medi cine for six years, live of them at Harmony. Beinjr of a mechanical turn of mind, in 1897, he became interested with Reuben Willetts and brother in the explosive engine. Next year he bought the Willetts' interest in the engine. He then discontinued the practice of medicine and associated with himself in the engine business John Carruthers, an experienced me chanic; forming the Bessemer Gas Engine company. This business has claimed his best energies ever since. The company was incorporated un der the laws of Pennsylvania in 1899, and its stock sold mostly to its employees and a few Grove City citi zens. Business grew slowly at first, the chief product being engine cyl inders to be attached to oil country steam engine beds for pumping light producing oil wells by use 0f natural gas. Later a complete gas engine, both for oil wells and for commercial projects, was designed and built and the business has steadily grown. To day the company is building oil en gines for the United States and also doing gun carriage work. Really its success has been phenomenal, and its stock is scarcely purchasable. Its employees now number 800. ' COMPANY'S BUSINESS POLICY Dr. Fithian has naturally directed this policy, for the first five years looking after both the office side of it and the drafting of new designs From the first it was determined to fill all new positions so far aa pos list, with Pennsylvania a close second, tfew York is not so far behind, and Iowa and OMa am making a rood showing The young ladr who rnakw up the sheets from the various states had us guessing before we found out ju6. how they stood.

Ho drew this conclusion from the fact that in all these years Iowa has made tho most liberal response to his appeals of any state in the Union considering tho number of subscribers in that state, and 6ince she stands neur the top in 'irculation at this timo ho was of the opinion that sho would head tho list in contributions to the Debt Fund. lie was somewhat disappointed but very proudly passed tho honor over to Illinois. Billv Parker SDent the best vears of his life in Pennsylvania and was willing to wager a month's pay that Pennsylvania would head the list, but he, too, had another guess com ing, rarker is now betting on tho East and South, while Brown hopes to pin the blue ribbon to the North and "West. At any rate the contest of the states is going to be interesting, and we are going to publish tho standing each and every week dur ing the campaign. But it really makes no difference where you live; the point is that this movement, like civilization it self, stands at the parting of the ways, one leading to death and de struction, the other to victory and universal peace. On one side or the other you are bound to take your stand. You aro either interested in this great cause, or you are not, and we can not help but beliove that your ac tion in this particular crisis will determine just where you belong. No matter what state you live in, you are in danger of the peril which we are fighting with every ounce of strength and energy and with every dollar at our commaud, and it is plainly your duty to help us fortify against the terrible day of battle just ahead.

At the end of five years, H. D. Murray, shop foreman, was placed in charge of the drafting de partment and John McCune, Jr., an employee stockholder, became fore man. The present chief engineer was first simply a common employe, then became foreman and has climbed on up. The secretary came to his posi tion in the same way. The sales manager began as a drill press oper ator. The cost department manager began as day laborer. The Chief western branch of the company is looked after by a man who began work for the company simply as a roust-a-bout In 1910. with others. Dr. Fithian Joined in organizing the Bessemer Motor Truck company, which is grow ing steadily and is now building a new eastern factory In Philadelphia. CHURCH AND OTHER ACTIVITIES Dr. Fithian Joined tho Presbyterian church when 13 years old and has been active in both local and county church work ever since. For several years he has been county superin tendent of the organized adult Bible class movement; also superintendent of temperance work. For the past 15 years he has taught the Men's Bible class of the Presbyterian church of Grove City, which has grown from a membership of 15 to 150. Tie has always been a working and voting prohibitionist. Papal Embassador Sits With the Huns The statps-ppner-iil - O T.aes VJfMCU Olj The Hague by the Queen of Holland on aeptemuer 18. As usual the members of both chambers, civilian authorities, court chamberlains, and diplomats from the various countries, were in attendance. One brief para- gTapn in a press dispatch from The Hamie in rep-nrd in th nnr.!n. the national parliament shows up the papacy invits true attitude to ward the Central Powers. It is as follows: "The seats of the Entente diplo mats were divided from those of the Central Empire by an aisle It is perhaps significant that the repre sentative of the holy see was seated with the latter." This shows the papal ambassador tr Holland to have deliberately seated himself amongst the representatives of the. enemies of the Entente Allies. He is the official representative of the pope at The Hague. It is his duty to carry out to the letter the wish of the Vatican, and there is reason to believe that he did so when he took his seat on the same side of the aisle as the diplomats from Ger many, Austria, and Turkey. It is said that the members of tha American legation were conspicuous by their lack of uniform. In appear ing without a" uniform the .Ameri can carried out , the exact wish of President Wilson, the United Btatesl government and the American peo ple. There' la every possible reason to believe that the papal represen tative Just as truly obeyed instruc tions from the Vatican and carried out the wishes of the papacy,-' when he selected a seat amongst the rep resentatives of the Hun. His action can only be interpreted as a desire on the part of the papacy to show friendliness , towiards the enemy of civilization. This may be accepted as another (link added to the long chain of evidence, which shows that the pope Is oi a' 1 the Cen tral Powers.. This act of the pope' representative is in complete har mony with the whole history of the papacy in connecjion with the war. -Th$ Sevt'net, Toronto, ; Canada, Sept 26, 1918. l" Illinois Guardians - Choose Candidates It appears that democratic con gressmen had no special reason for wishing the Guardians to go down the line investigating the ticket since the list was not available when the Guardians made the selection of en dorsements regarding congressmen. Last week we printed the Guardians' endorsement of conoTepoinrf' cor date un to' the 10th district.

AlabamaOwesaDebtto Congressman Burnett The Menace feels that it would be a serious, misfortune for the pa triotic cause and the country at large if John L. Burnett should not be re turned to congress from the seventh Alabama district Usually, m Alabama, to secura the nomination on the democratic ticket is all that is required to assure elec tion, but in the seventh district the republican and democratic forces are pretty evenly divided and every papist in the district will vote against Burnett. This makes it imperative that every loyal patriot cast his vote for Mr. Burnett for there is no man in the lower house whom Rome would rather defeat trfan this man who fathered the immigration hill. This bill which he championed with such Udenty and final success is one of the most important pieces of legislation that has been passed by congress in fifty years. Indeed had it been en acted fifteen years earlier we would not recently have been so troubled with disloyalty among the vast hordes of alien residents within our bor ders. " A rumor has been diliarentlv cir. culated in the seventh Alabama dis trict that Mr. Burnett has a Roman Catholic secretary. This rumor is totally untrue., and is circulated, no doubt for the deliberate purpose of doing him an injustice and in tha hope of impairing his just popular- uy wiia. painouc voters, tie has not now, nor has he, ever had, either a private secretary or a stenographer tainted in the slightest degree with jvomanism. . ,.

Free Ma sonry III Becomes the Mother cf The World's Masters of Intrlfus All the dissension and strife be tween the Roman hierarchy and hundred per cent Americana is started by the hierarchy and not by Americans. A favorite trick of papai ambuscades against our coun try and its people and , institutions ! to make vicious attacks on the church, the school, the lodge, and the non-sectarian philanthropies and then whine for peace and harmony when these attacks are resented. By her own Incessant and malici ous attacks on Freemasonry, Rome is inviting that great body of. pa triots, scholars, philanthropist and statesmen to defend itself by means that wilt surely be righteous and may become edifying to the public. While maintaining scores of militant and unscrupulous nanal ortmnizati nna In this country and aggregating them Into one federated management for Bcuion poiuicai purposes, the hier archy loses no' opportunity to bush whack every fraternal and philan thropic body that Is not narrowly sectarian and exclusively Roman Catholic. , . .The most -.representative assem bly of Mocho politicians and prelates that ever met in this country was the third plenary council of Balti more held in November and Decem ber, 1884. The program of the meet ing was carefully prearranged in the Vatican. The most clever poli tician that has occupied the papal throne in centuries, Leo XIII, was t"en reigning, and he appointed archbishop, now cardinal, Gibbons as his special delegate to preside over the Baltimore meeting and see that it correctly reflected the purposes and ambition of the autocrat of the Roman Catholic world. . The acta and decrees of that coun cil compose the local canon law set up in opposition to the constitutional and statute law of this country. Like all tho law and doctrine of Rome, it is carefully withheld from the understanding of the boasted millions of laymen by being promul gated and kept exclusively in me diaeval Latin these thirty-two years. But Gibbons on behalf of the pope addressed to the assembled prelates a pastoral letter, which is published in English, and wherein he mildly reiterated the relentless hatred of Freemasonry which the pope him self, had expressed in extenso the previous April. Gibbons wrote in part as follows: "Thus our Holy Father Leo XIII has lately shown" that the Masonic and kindred societies, although the Offspring of the ancient guilds, which aimed at sanctifying trades and tradesmen with the blessinrt of re ligion; and although retaining, ppr haps, In their 'ritual much that tells of the religiousness of their origin: and although in some countries still professing entire friendliness toward the . Christian religion, have never theless already gone so far, in many countries, as to array themselves in avowed hostility to Christianity, and against the Catholic church as its embodiment; that they virtually aim at substituting a world-wide frater nity of their own for the universal brotherhood of Jesus Christ, and at disseminating mere naturalism for the supernatural revealed religion bestowed upon mankind by the Sa vior of the world. He has shown, too, that, even in countries where they are as yet far from ackliowl eding 6uch purposes, they neverthe less have in them the germs, which, under favorable circumstances, would inevitably blossom forth in similar results. The church, consequently, forbids her children to have any con nection with such societies, because THK i AKE EITHER AN OPEN EVIL TO BE SHUNNED OR, m m m w a-i"a"uVtVVjVirLViu CONGRESSMAN LlflTIIICUH AND ROME OHN CHARLES LINTHICUXI is serving hia fourth term in congress from the fourth Maryland district. After our coun try entered the war, James A. Gallivan, one of the Irish Roman . Catholic congressmen from Boston, circulated a petition among members of conn-ess callinsr on the British government to grant m permission to the Roman Catholic Sinn Feincrs in Ireland to hang the papal yoke on their Protestant neighbors in Ulster under the dishonest pretense of "home rule." Linthicum signed the petition. When a measure was pending in congress to submit to the states the prohibition amendment to the federal constitution, Linthicum voted against the measure, though it was supported by the petition of more good citizens probably than ever appealed to congress in behalf of any legislative proposal before considered in this country. Notwithstanding his opposition, the proposed amendment was passed by the required two-thirds of both houses of congress and was promptly ratified by Maryland in spite of the fierce opposition of Cardinal Gibbons. 1 Last June 24, The Virginian rilot, published at Norfolk, stated that Mr. Linthicum had participated actively in conferring degrees on a class of candidates for membership in the Knights of Columbus, which could not be possible unless he were a member of that order whose ca reer in this country is marked by so much murder, rioting, arson and terrorism extending from Boston to Seattle and from Texas to the Great Lakes. . Mi". Linthicum, when confronted with this news item by an in dignant Protestant, denied that he had participated in the degree work mentioned, stating that it was probably another Linthicum who had done so. Asked to make public his denial, he declined to do so, saying, among other things: , "The question of giving this larger publicity is of doubtful value: it might hurt the feelings of a number of my constituents, and I would not like, to do this." , , Though stating privately that he is not a Knight of Columbus and did not confer degrees in that order, he thus declined to say the same thing publicly for fear of hurting the feelings of his constituents. Whose feelings would it hurt? Certainly none but those of Roman Catholics. He feels that it is politically safer to leave Protestants believing what he says 'is not true than to tell Roman Catholics what he says is true. Congressmen in this critical time ahould be made of sterner staff. According to Tko Daltimoro Sun of September R, charge were preferred aealnst the firm of J. Charles Linthicum tft Brother and the Linthicum Realty Company before the Rent Profiteering Committee of the Council of National Defense by Mrs. Annie L. Walburg and by Mrs. Stoll of 2239 Preston Place, Baltimore, for rent prcJttWinf. Seth H. Linthicum, brother and partner of the ttrnrussrnart, denied the charges, however. '', Mr. Linthicum is a candidal for election the fifth time to the , seat In congreas whfch will have yielded him (C0,000 in salary at the close of hia pment trnv ' Mr. taker Tho should bars bean the tadrjftndwt eandldat faQed to file hia papers in time to get in ta The eatr question now Is whether or not Ltnthkum is worse than hia Qsfpoaect, frvtatifpt, and may you be elided aright, A HIDDEN DANGEB TO BE AVOIDED, . a ''But if any aociety'a obligation be such as to bind its, members to so crecy, even when rightly questioned by competent authority, then such society puts itself outside the limits of approval and no .ens can be a mimber of it and at the same tinu bt admitted to ih taeramentt of thi CathoUt church." Though that greatest and mbst fa vored Roman Catholla fraternity tt criminals, the Jesuits, has been re- Jeatedly expelled from all the great ree countries, except our own, many times because of inherent and scien tific dishonesty, brutality and trea son, every democratic government in the world extends the glad hand of fellowship and cordial welcome to Masons because of their high integ rity, patriotism and sterling worth. But Rome condemns all honest fra ternities because of their alleged se crets, which members are unwilling to betray "even when questioned by competent' authority." Competent authority forsooth I What authority is it that vainly strives to extort leg itimate and necessary secrets from the great fraternal orders? It is the Roman priesthood In the confessional. Because men of high moral scruples and integrity will not disclose to Jesuit Driest all the inner life and geidus of the great brotherhoods that stand for liberty and justice that Jesuits hate, the pope and all his satellites hurl anathemas at those brotherhoods. t But has Rome no organization with secrets? Have the Jesuits any se crets? They are the embodiment of the deepest and darkest secrets ever; invonted. Have the Knignts or co lumbus any secrets? They have. Their activities and of course their secret work are modeled upon those of the.. Jesuits. Political intrigue, terrorism, arson and murder are fa miliar deeds of both organizations. Have the -Ancient Order of Hibern ians, any secrets? Of course they have. Has the German Catholic Verein any secrets? All these papal aliens are bound together in ties of deepest secrecy. But Rome makes no objection to those secrets because ttyey are open to her Jesuit priests. George Washington was a promi nent Mason. So was LaFayette, Nearly all signers of the Declara tion of Independence were Masons. Many of the presidents of the re public were active members of this great body, which numbers in its membership virtually all the distin guished scholars, inventors, philoso phers, statesmen and Jurists that have shaped and adorned our na tional life. . The Smiths in New York How Charles Bennett Smith has been able to cenceal the fact that he is related to so many priests, nuns, and others who are part and parcel of the Roman system is a mystery to well-informed folks in the 41st con gressional district, New. York. His record in congress is enough to make one wonder just why he would do some of the things he has done and we suppose his family connections furnish a very Important part of the answer.. This particular Smith, like the Smith running for governor, is a part of the Tammany machine and both should be defeated. Decent citizens should remember that they cannot vote for Smith for congress without endorsing Fingy Connors of Ths Buffalo Inquirer and the way the voters of Buffalo repudiated Fingy's men in the last municipal election ought to be a suf ficient hint . to . every conscientious voter in the 41st district. It is good political strategy to give Fingy and his bunch a wide berth. The papal press boasts that the Chinese government has built a hos pital in Peking and employed Ro man nuns as nurses therein. This would seem to indicate, if true, that, in addition to selecting a German spy as papal envoy to China, Ro manism is busy there, as it is here. corrupting politics and public insti tutions by uniting church and state.
