If All Authorities Were Priests the
American' People Would be
Wiped Off the Earth,:,
Our readers, everywhere, are fa
miliar with tie epidemic of inflU'
enza that is sweeping Over .the coun
try witt' its terrible toll of health
and human life. Everyone knows,
too, of the measures taken to combat
the plague and save the life of our
people, and how loyally the restrict
ive measures' adopted by the author
ities for the security of the public
health have been accepted and carried
out by the masses of the people.
However, it has been no surprise to
us that we have received numerous
letters and clippings from all parts
of the country telling of the delib
erate violations, by Catholic priests,
of law and municipal ordinances, or
ders of hoards of health, and olnciai
proclamations. The priests opened
their churches and conducted public
services, where such gatherings had
been prohibited and when their law-
abidine Protestant neighbors were
obeying the law and making no fuss
about it This did not surprise us,
because the position of the Catholio
church is, that the law or tM cnurcn
ia of greater importance and super
sedes the civil law; that the civil
law and the decisions of the courts
are to be interpreted by the law of
Catholic church, and, that in case of
conflict between the two, the rules
of the church take precedence. In
oilier words, the tpirit and idea is,
tlie "church" first and the govern
ment afterwards..
It Is the same rebellious contempt
uous SDirit the late D. S. Phelan
manifested in his famous, "To Hel!
With the Government" sermon a few
vears arro. only lackinir Phelan's out
spoken vehemence and plainness of
speech. True, in many cases Cath
olic priests have obeyed the orders
given by the boards of health and in
gome cases they have been called on
to do so by their superiors, who, as
in Philadelphia, called on all in the
church to assist in stamping out the
This would have been needless had
It not been recognized that the
Catholic church looks to its super
iors for law and direction, instead
of to the law and the legally con
stituted authorities. It follows.
then, that for their obedience to the
rules established and any aid they
have given, they are entitled to no
special credit, any more than the
members of other churches, and the
great number outside the churches
who accepted the situation and went
to work voluntarily to save the life
and health of the nation. To excuse
the actions of the Catholic clergy or
palliate their offences in this cmer
eency, would be to admit that they
are a superior class above the law,
and beyond its reach a proposition
we deny, for( our Americanism
knows no ' privileged interests, fa-
vorcd classes, .or specially legalized
religious sects favored above others,
An aggravated . instance of the
priestly defiance of law was fur
nished by the Rev. Father Villing,
pastor of St. Joseph's Catholic
church , at Springfield, Missouri.
Springfield has been hard hit by the
epidemic with resultant loss of life,
and at the outset the city authori
ties placed a ban on all public gath
erings including church services.
These orders were obeyed, it seems,
by all except this priest, Villina,
who was willing to jeopardize the
lives of his fellow citizens by follow
ing the rules of its church. He was
complained of for two weeks, and
when an investigation was made on
Sunday, October 20th, it was found
that services were being held in this
St. Joseph's church, admission be
ing by a rear door.
The priest was arrested, but an
investigation showed that there was
no penalty clause attached to sthe
closing order so, as the priest could
not be punished, he was released
with the injunction to be careful
hereafter. Springfield now has a
city ordinance providing that viola
tions oF the ; proclamation of ; the
mayor' or orders of the boards of
health in matters of this kind carry
penalties of sixty days in Jail or
5500.00 Jine. What the priest will
do in the matter remains to be seen.
At the little town of Verona, five
miles south of Aurora, the home of
Tup Menace, the Roman Catholic
priest disregarded the closing order
of the county authorities, resulting
in 4 the steps of 'the churchy being
painted yellow, and the building it
self being . decorated - with yellow
crosses, by the precocious youth of
the village who thought the scheme
a good one as a lesson in American

Sidelights.on Mr. Babka
There has iust come to our atten
tion a very interesting article-in The
Cleveland News on Mr. uaDKa, unaer
date of July 80, 1918. Therein Ohio
people were given some interesting
Bidelitrhta . on Babka's career in a
manner that lead9 us to wonder how
it ever escaped the papal censor.
It seems that about one year ago
The Hisrbee Co.. one of the largest de
partment stores in Cleveland, was
robbed. . Thereafter Mr. Hambourg,
alias, etc., was arrested in Hot
Snrinw. and bv extradition brouent
back to Cuyahoga county, indicted
and found guilty of the crime of
robbery, and while the case versus
Hambourg was pending on motion
for a new trial Mr. JiabKa, tne nrst
assistant county prosecutor, makes
his appearance.
Now. bv way of digression for
a few minutes, and with the kindest
thouehts for Mr. Babka, we must as
sume that he is an attorney of aver
age ability, any other assumption
would disqualify him for congress.
This -assumption being correct, he
must have known that any bail bond
furnished bv Mr. Hambourg would
be for commercial reasons and not
for friendship. Men do not sign bail
bonds for those who have a criminal
record throughout the country, un
less thev are indemnified. We as
sumo Mr. uabKa was acquainted
with this elementary principle of hu
man society, otherwise we would be
doing him an injustice. Neverthe
less, Mr. Hambourg produced a bond
through the office of his attorney, E.
P. Strong, in the person of Miss
Bayne, who is a stenographer in Mr.
Strong's office, Mr. Babka, together
with Mr. Strong,' then appeared be
fore Judge Levine and asked that the
bond be reduced from $5,000 to $2,
600. which request .Tudee Levine re
fused. On the following day Mr.
Babka .and Mr. Strong appeared be
fore Judge Powell for the same pur
pose. Judge Powell is quoted as say
ing that Mr. Strong and Mr. Babka
represented to him that Judge Le
vine had said he did not believe Mr.
Hambourg guilty-and that Judge, Le
vine, who was absent from the court
on that day, had assented to such n
reduction in the bond. On the fol
lowing day Judge Levine returned to
his duties and is quoted as not hav
ing made such a statement. Never
theless, the bond was reduced by
Judge Powell from $5,000 to $2,500.
Mr. Hambourg effected his' escape
from the county jail through such a
reduction and has not been located
We would like to inquire of Mr.
Babka if he did not consider it his
duty as a matter of legal ethics to
inform Judge Powell that the mat
ter had been presented to Judge Le
vine on the preceding day and passed
upon by Judge Levine.
We would like to inquire if the
21st congressional district of Ohio
wishes to be represented in congress
by one who has failed in his duties
as first assistant county prosecutor
in Tjermittinz such a well-known
criminal, with a police record
thtouehout the entire country, : to
make his escape.
And lastly, we wish to ask u a
man can be one hundred per cent
American who will make one state
ment to one judge on a certain day
and make another statement in di
rect opposition thereto to another
iudee on the following day?
There are many great issues com
ing before our government at this
time, and we do not think a party
should be elected to this important
office who has been weighed in the
balance and found wanting as in the
Hambourg case.
There may be a Hambourg case
before congress at its next session.
It may be under the name of the
Irish Home Rule, or some other cog
nomen. We believe that no man
should be elected to this important
office who has failed to cope with a
minor detail such as the Hambourg

uitlcally forward.' Tho result of the
primary on August 27th ,was amaz
ing but not unexpected to those fa
miliar with the plans and plots of
the papists." For the most success

its p-hastly head and was brazenly
injected into politics from the pul-
a . .i . r . 1 m j
pus oi. we priests, in ever ociore in
the history or .American cities was
religion 60 prostituted for . selfish
political ends. All sense of social,
religious and political decency was
cast to the winds while the priests
of Rome and their willing tools, pli
ant and conscienceless, came boldly
into the open and played their brutal
game with an utter disregard of all
those proprieties accepted among
?entlemen in honorable antagonism,
hrough perfect organization and
the massing of their forces the Ro
manists won hands down against an
army of unsuspicious non-Catholics
outnumbering them two to one but
who, lacking organization and a
common aim, scattered their strength
and went to inglorious defeat.
The organization known as the
Kniehts of Columbus and the Knights
of Equity, controlled and officered
by religious fanatics to whom poli
tics is but a tool for religious propa
ganda, religious persecution and po
litical pap. , acting in conjunction
with their priestly bosses and ad
visers, saw in the new Detroit char
ter a chance to seize the control of
the city and shape 'it to their das
tardly uses.
Detroit's capture by the Jesuits
is of no interest as a religious mat
ter. We have to do only with those
who live politically upon religion,
With an Irish Catholic national com
mitteeman, Billy Connolly, known
among his ward heelers as Fatty
Connolly), of the dominant party for
the past six years there is not an
important federal appointment in
Detroit not. filled by one of that
faith and extraction. . The federal
offices are indeed so crowded with
them that there are but two, Judge
Tuttle and Clevk Elmer Voorhies,
republican appointees for life who
are not political Romanists. It only
remains to hoist the cross over the
Federal building and say mass on
the steps of the Shelby 6treet en
trance! In appointments to Michigan
state offices the Romanists have the
proportion to which they are en
titled. For this credit is due to Gov.
Sleeper, the fearless executive who
stands like a stone wall against their
indecent demands and steadfastly
refuses to be either coerced or ca
joled by them.iOnly those in the
know . can appreciate what sinister
influences have-been, brought to bear
against Michigan's -loyal - governor,
but thus far without: result. He has
openly and courageously given them
and their priestly backers the den
in answer td, their threats and
blandishments. . (All honor to him
for it). M
Wayne county officers of the po
litical Romanists cannot be -elected,
but they exert secret influences of an
astounding nature . in view of the
size of their collective vote. To il
lustra te. Johnny Smith, Milt Oak
man's chief deputy, rules a flock of
Romanists in the county clerk s of
lice. Little Sisters of the ' Poor,
very wealthy corporation, carry
away baskets of uncooked meat from
the county iail, .Eddie Command in
the decedent's estate division of the
probate court, tosses the countless
perquisites to Johnny smith and
other Romanists, while Henry Hul
hurt, in the juvenile division, gives
the Catholic societies a free office in
the detention home so that the Ro
manist representatives and ..their
eager tools may be present at every
session of the court and so miss no
unfortunate child or girl who can b
thrust into the House of the Good
Shepherd and sent to its wash tubs
and ironing boards.
For the city, offices the political
Romanists can only be elected to the
city council, but their power to grab
and hog appointments is almost un
believable as the facts which follow
demonstrate: ,
Political Romanists in Detroit's
public schools .70

POINTEES! At the August primary there were
four contenders for the mayoralty
nomination, two to be named; Fatty
Connolly, Irish Catholic; James
Couzens, non-Catholic; John Gillespie,
non-Catholic, and Divie Duffleld, non
Catholic. Duffield and Gillespie were
defeated, leaving Fatty Connolly and
Couzens to try conclusions in the
November finals. Not all Connolly
supporters are political crooks, but
every political crook in Detroit is a
Connolly supporter. All the notorious
ward workers and precinct heelers
are for Connolly to a man. So is
every ex-saloon keeper and rounder.
The prostitutes and their pimps
fear Couzens as they do the devil,
for hia election will mean that they
will be driven from the city without
mercy. The issue is squarely drawn
and cannot be evaded or confused.
If Connolly seizes the political power
of Detroit with its thousands of fat
jobs as he has already seized the fed
eral patronage in the city and state,
his kid of tne city can never oe
shaken off.
At the Aucrust primary there were
oiVhtppn ranriirlate.n to be nominated
for the city council. The political
Romanists entered twenty names for
the etehteen nominations. Of these
seven Romanists were nominated as
follows :
Charles F. Bielman. William P.
Bradley, John A. Kronk, Joseph A.
Walsh. Thomas E. Glinnan,- Tom
Mav. and John S. Garvey.
Non-Catholic candidates: Kichard
M. Watson, H. H. Dickinson, Bur
nette F. Stephetison, ired w. uas'
tator. Georee W. Ross, Sherman
Littlcfield, John C. Nagel, David W,
Simons, and Hueh Shepherd.
John C. Lodge, tho architect of
The Menace ordinance and James
Vernor, who has a Catholic wife, and
who said he did not see why the man
who sold The Menace was allowed
to live, have both worked diligently
with the political Romanists and are
their nominees: and with the seven
thoroughbred Catholics will make a
full hand for the papacy If they sue
ceed in nuttinir their slate across.
It is now onenly talked of in hotel
lobbies and the club9 that Connolly
workers have lined up a certain sec
tion 'of the Masons, by promises and
nlcdires of political jobs and politi
cal plunder, to desert Couzens and
throw to their candidate in the No
vember election. Two years ago
Oscar Marx defeated Connolly for
mavor bv a majority of some fifteen
thousand. But many vital changes
have taken place since and conditions
are not as they were. Mr. Couzens
has absolutely declined to spend any
money in the election. He says that
if he cannot be elected without the
use of money he prefers defeat On
the other hand a huce campaign fund
has been raised for Connolly and it
is being poured out like water. And
every political thug and parasite,
every ward heeler and precinct
rounder is shouting for Connolly
night and day and working as they
never worked before to "put him
across" and get their feet in the po
litical troueh at the city hill.

Joe Taggart Kansas
Wvandotte county. Kansas, Is
pretty well covered with posters ad
vertising Joe Taggart for district
judge. The posters aver that Joe is
"one of tho boys who is giving his
all for his country." He is shown
to the voters on these posters
through a picture which gives evi
dence that he is wearing a captain
Now Joe may be giving his all to
his country, but he has a real "bomb
proof" job in the quartermaster s de
partment at Washington, and he en
joys the rank of captain. Of course
Joe is giving his all all that he has
to give, for he could hardly bo ex
pected to go overseas and offer his
life since his life isn't really his
secin' as how it belongs to tne popte.
Joe used to be a congressman from
Kansas. He was disappointed in the
last election. When we saw how
hard it went with him we were some
what sorry we had been so out
spoken and probably influenced the
rest of Kansas to vote against him.
Joe never was the fire-eating kind of
a papist like that Priest Murphy in
Pennsylvania. . He recognized that
there were a few votes In Kansas
beside Catholic votes but some way
he never got very far away from the
old church, and at every election as
we get to looking about in the shad
ow of the church we invariably see
Joe standing there with his hand out
A few of the folks Joe used to
misrepresent in congress have writ
ten in that they hope he will not be
elected district judge, as they would
rather he would stay in the quarter
master's department until after the
war and then go to work at. some
thing in Honolulu. In other words,
he may be of some use in the quar
termaster s department but the folks
back home don't want to nut him on
the pay roll and have to stand for his
struting around in plain sight at the
same time.
By the way, the votes Joe can
swing ought to be worth a job in
Honolulu to the next administration.

,H. M. Havner, eeekinf re-election

circulation to The Gopher, but just at this time she is most interested in
getting her book off the press and to the people. She needs advance or
ders to enable her to get it out, and I want every friend of the cause
who has $1.50 to spare to send it to her at once, with a word of en
' couragement, and place an order for this book, to be delivered as soon
' as it comes from tho press. -' -
The Menace and The Gopher are the only two papers in this field
at the present time and we have no more to spare. If these two also
are not to be ground to powder by the onslaughts of the enemy and
the condition of the times it is going to take the assistance of friends at
a time when that assistance was never needed worse. I want The Gopher
to live and I want Burke McCarty to bo able to eat in order that she,
too, may live, and for that reason I ask you to order this book. You
will not only be getting your money's worth in the book, but you will
be furnishing one of tho big guns of the anti-papal and patriotic move
ment the only ammunition which it can use to advantage in this fight

Some of you are doubtless won
dering just why we favor Land
strum for senator over Jeannette
Rankin. The answer1 is easy.
. Landstrum is the nominee of the
republican party and tha psychology
of that very fact makes him the
most favored opponent of the onH
pape running for that office. It is
then, the part of . wisdom not to di
vide our forces but to cast our sup
port where it will carry a safe can
didate over the top.
Furthermore if any of you have
any doubts as to what kind of a
man Landstrum is you have only to
read Governor Stewart's attempted
exposure of him. True he charges
Landstrum with being a big gun in
the republican party. Tho same can
be said of Walsh in the democratic
party or he wouldn't be that party's
nominee. But get down to those
things on which Stewart actually
made his pitiful attempt to put
Landstrum out of the race. If nine
out of every ten points he raised
won't show that Landstrum is truly
the fundamentally sound candidate
for the office then we fail to under
stand plain English, The pity is
that Landstrum's supporters have
failed to widely circulate the charge
Stewart makes against Landstrum s
paper, for Landstmm has been a
supporter , oi constitutional Amer
icanism and Stewart's criticisms
prove it Those criticisms also show
that Walsh, the man ' favored by
Stewart must be .the opponent of
constitutional Americanism and be-

Don't forget that-iStewart appealed
for support of the administration;
or rather that was what he said he
was doing; Instead he indulged in
rank . politics and pleaded for the
support of Walsh and if Walsh's
ideas as represented by Stewart are
what we must support to stand be
hind the administration in its prose

from that administration. ,
