i- Nothing has so shaken ud the North
west in many a year as the complete
exposure ot the secret political organ
ization known as the A. P. A. made by
.- the i.i be last Monday. All the week
' past orders for papers have been pour
j ing iii from the Northwest, and even as
>. far east as New York. Private letters
have been sent by the score approving
I the course of the Globe, while only
j three have sent in words of censure,
{. and they shielded themselves in the

i mous or fictitious signatures. _.;-
--; The sentiment, if not unanimous, is

nation of the oath-bound organization.
An incident has come to our knowl
edge which shows what kind of a diet
the members of tiie A. P. A. feed upon.
In lite report of meetings of the St.
Paul chapter it was mentioned that a
meeting being addressed by Rev. G. L.
Merrill, of Minneapolis, was broken up
by a fire alarm. It appears that those
< : present had fed themselves upon such
bugbears that they teared each bush
1 an officer. The meeting was being held
i in the hall of the Knights of Pythias.
I This hail is on Fifth street in a brick
block adjoining the Berrisford cracker
factory. When the cracker factory took
fire the A. P. A. meeting thought they
were being burned out by the Catholics,
and shouting every one for himself, tied
to the street, leaving Mr. Morrill with
out an audience. There never was a
clearer case of a guilty conscience need
ing no accuser. We append some com
munications and also the comments of
the papers:
Keep I aneing the Carbuncle.
To th? Editor of the Globe.
Lake City, Minn., Nov. 10.— Like
many others, 1 have with a good de^l of
interest read your exposure of the so
called A. P. A*s. The Globe deserves
the thanks of every American for its
exposure. If tlse leading papers of the
United Slates would do as the Globe
has done in this instance, we would
soon see I lie end of this foreign pest. -
First of all, I am compelled to express
my astonishment at the idea of any in
telligent Americau to so far forget his
manhood as to permit himself to be
made the scapegoat of that infamous
Orange band bolstered up by the great
est enemies this republic ever had, "the
English Tories."
' You may ask what proof have we that
the leaders of the A. P. A.'s are Orange
men? First— lt is not possible that os
tracism of their fellow citizens could
originate in the breasts of patriotic
Secondly— lt is a well-known fact the
world over that it has been the leading
tactics with the English Tories the past
three hundred years to array the Irish
people against each other on religious
grounds. For sho does not know that
i.i the absence of such jealousies the
English liag would not float under the
troubled skies of unfortunate Ireland
forty-eight hours? The fact that the
sympathy of the American people has
gone out to the Irish nation in their
struggle for liberty no doubt has had
something to do with bringing these
ranting < Orangemen to the front at this

ious, organization in Ireland.

Let me give you an American illustra
tion of an Irish Orangeman.
. In the days of American slavery there
were two classes of slaves in the South
who almost held themselves aloof— the
slaves who lived in the cities and who
often were half-free by -hiring their
owu time.'' and the negroes who worked
on the plantations. The town slaves,
in order to ingratiate themselves with
the whites, referred contemptuously to
the plantation hands as "dem country
niggers." The whites, of course, when
they spoke of those colored Shauueens
—who dropped the 0 ? s and the Mac's in
their own way— referred to them as
••these town niggers." For no man who
is ashamed of his own race is respected
"by any race. The Orangemen want to
separate themselves from their race,and
therefore In v earn the hearty contempt
of all tree peoples.
They are the "town niggers" of Ire
The American who travels quietly
thmugh Ireland and sees the habitations
ofthe people; visits the schools and
finds that no history of Ireland is suf
fered to be taught in them: scrutinizes
the harbors and finds only English shin
ping there, and little of that; visits the
jails and sees men riving of diseases
who nave been held without warrant,
bah or trial, for mere trumpery accusa
tions of a political nature; examines the
goods on the shop counters and finds
they are all made abroad and imported
from a singly foreign country; reads the
terms ol the coercion act, by which Ire
land, under constitutional English gov
ernment, is more despotically crushed
than Poland under unconstitutional
The American who sees these facts
for himself must reach the conclusion
that the native of such a country, who
prefers that this social and political
condition shall be perpetrated, is a
being so low in the intellectual and
moral scale that in the natural process
ot selection and survival he must disap
pear Irom sheer incongruity, absurdity
and vvorthlessness. Yet i; "is this kind

In the so-called A. P. As.
The Orangeman isa peculiar produc
tion he is perhaps the only member of
the human family who is noted as being
born with an intense and unrelenting
hatred for the laud of - his birth, and it
would be strictly in accordance with the
habits of mind of this creature that he
should feel the same hatred for the
country of his adoption, and should
place himself at the disposition of the
British governmental spy system as a
willing tool to carry out any plans that
that government might determine upon,
no matter how unworthy they might be
or how vile the results sought to be ob
tained. -
No. The law-abiding, freedom-loving
citizens ot this great republic need have
no fears or this "frothing of the Orange
men, whose necks still retain the chaf
ing marks of the English Tory collar.
It is well to warn unsuspecting Am
ericans of -the danger of associating
with such disturbers of the peace.
By all means keep lancing the car
buncle. . P. H. Rahilly.
A Puncturing Argument.
To tbe Editor of the Globe.
St. Paul, Minn., Nov. 9.— 1 have
been accused of unduly attacking the
A. P. A., and, as that association num
bers amongst its members some per
sonal friends of my own and some who
are rightly held in esteem, you would
confer a tavor on me by giving me space
in your valuable journal to express
what is considered by me to be the true
reason why the association should bs
held up to nuolic censure.
It has come to my knowledge that the
A. P. A. justify their boycott of the
Roman Catholics on the principle of re
taliation. It is claimed that the Ameri
can Roman Catholics place their duty to
the pope first ant! their country second:
this is indeed a serious charge, and
would be nothing less than a charge of
treason against any American citizen
who is a follower of the Roman Cath
olic religion. That this charge is en
tirely unfounded would appear to be
satisfactorily proved by the words of
Mgr. Satolii uttered with due considera
tion some time since. In the course of
his address he stated that with the
"constitution in the right hand and the
Bible in the left the Roman Catholic
church would march to victory.-' If
this expression means anything it means
that the duty that a citizen owes to his
country is of the highest importance.
But, admitting tor the sake of argu
ment, and for the sake of argument
only, that the Roman Catholics had in
view the control of all political power,
would it be good policy on the part of
any secret association to endeavor to
destroy their influence by a line of con
duct which could only be carried out
by a flagrant breach of the constitution
al rights granted to each American citi
cen? Surely not. We are taught that
the only way to meet tyranny is to
foster the true principles of liberty in
the hearts of the people. The only way
to avoid the ascendancy of bigotry is to
show true largeness of mind. "The only
reasonable mode to supress crime is to
show a due and proper regard for vir
lt was said by the wisest of ancient
philosophers that if your neighbor in
jures you be sure and do him kindness
in return, for thereby you heap coals of
fire on his head.
Now, has it ever been proved that the
Roman Catholics, as a class, have sought
political power to the exclusion of all
others? Certainly not. It is true that
in this city persons happening to belong
to the Roman Catholic church have ob
tained some important offices, and there
is little doubt that our Roman Catholic
fellow citizens are equally willing with
their Protestant brethren to so far
forget the teachings or their Master as
to hanker after the loaves and fishes;
but can it be shown that these office
seekers and office getters have turned
over even a portion of their salaries to
the mother church? On the contrary, it
is generally believed that they have
used their salaries for the support of
themselves and families, and in some
cases have indulged themselves in
luxuries to the extent of neglecting the
fundamental rules of the church. " In
deed, so far as their official life is con
cerned, they have shown no more ad
herence to their church than to any
other. Tnis abundantly proves that
they hold their offices as citizens and
not as Roman Catholics.
It is admitted to be the undoubted
right of every citizen of this republic to
offer himself to his fellow citizens for
election to any office in the gift of the
people, and it is equally open to any
citizen to record his vote or legitimately
use nis influence for or against any as
pirant tor office, and if the A. P. A. had
entered into an agreement between
themselves to support any eligible can
didate or to oppose any charlatan for
office, irrespective of patty, creed or
race, no right-minded man would have
a word of censure to bestow upon them,
but could and would give them his un
qualified sympathy and support. But
when they come forward with a plat
form, having for its only Important
plank the narrow-minded idea that no
Roman Catholic should be allowed to
occupy any public office, and should be
debarred from trading with or doing
work for any member of the association,
the true citizen is struck with astonish
ment, gazes around and rubs his eyes,
and wonders whether he can be
living in a tree country .in the
nineteenth century, or whether he
iias not by sonic chance slipped
on the galoshes of f jrtune and been
transported to the dominions of the czar
of all the Russias. He thinks to him
self. Can it be possible, can any Ameri
can citizen so far forget the first princi
ple that the father of his country hand
ed down to him as a legacy without
price, to be kept by him untarnished
and so transmitted to his posterity, as
to endeavor to persuade his fellow citi
zen to endeavor to work against any
other fellow citizen on account of his
race or creed? .
It would accord me pleasure to learn
that 1 have been misinformed as to the
objects of the A. P. A., for it grieves
me to have to hold up to public censure
any association numbering amongst its
members some really good, upright and
just fellow citizens; but it appears to
me to be the duty of every fair-minded
citizen, without fear or favor, at all
times to hold up to reprobation any as
sociation or body of men who so tar
forget their allegiance to their country
as to endeavor to trample on her glori
ous constitution. Bexx Davis.

The St. Paul Gi,o_ue of Monday con

■ etc., fully demonstrating Eaitor Hall's
: ability to raise h— l and sell newspapers.

Waverly Tribune.
The St. Paul Globe published last
Monday a very interesting exposure of
the methods of the American Protective
association, It seems astounding that
a society of this description should have
2,000 members iv Duluth and 8,000 or
10,000 in Minneapolis. The editorial on
the first page of the Tribune this week
was written before the exposure of the
St. Paul Globe appeared, and in the
light of the revelations of that paper
we can only add that a society which
speaks of its members as being God's
noblemen, swears to uphold the consti
tution, and ; then, uuder an : oath
of " secrecy, binds those who be
long-to it not to employ a Cath
olic in ' any capacity, or countenance
the nomination of a Catholic for any
office in the gift of the American people,
is a blot on our civilization and a burn
ing disgrace. If the constitution of the
United States depends for its interpre
tation upon the fools who masquerade
as the A P. A., the sooner it is abol
ished the better. The founders of our
republic hated, despised and loathed
the narrow and contemptible bigotry
which ostracises a man for his religious
belief, and they wouid have detested
equally the sanctimonious hypocrisy
that calls upon God to witness an act of
unsurpassed meanness.— Waverly Trib

Aitkin Age.
A report has been in circulation that
a lodge of the A. P. A. had been organ
ized in Aitkin, and held its meetings in
the office of the county auditor, and,
considerable indignation being ex
pressed that county buildings should
have been put to such use, an Age re'
porter was dispatched to investigate. !
Auditor Luther informed the reporter
that the report was unfounded; that six \
gentlemen had met in his office and
talked the matter over; that he had dis
couraged the idea, and that to the best
ot his knowledge no branch of that or
ganization existed in Aitkin, The Age '■
trusts that there is not and will not be ■
any such affliction fastened upon us, and :
further trusts that if it should come
upon us that no Democrat will allow
himself to be cajoled into joining it. An
order formed for the annoyance and in
jury of men simply on account of their
religion is so completely contrary to
Democratic history and 'tradition that
no man can belong to it and the Demo
cratic party at the same time. Let our
friends -the enemy reap all the glory
appertaining to all such un-American
proceedings, and also their inevitable
In Violation of the Laws.
Sauk Center Avalanche.
The St. Paul Globe on Monday came
out with what it avers to be the* secret
work of the A. P. A. If the Globe's
exposure is a true state of affairs there
is something radically wrong in the or
ganization, and it should be externa
nated. Any number of persons banded
together to trample upon their fellow
men, and who call themselves Ameri
can citizens, such as the A. P. A.'s are,
do not deserve the recognition of true
Americans. The Globe gives the ob
ligations in full. * * * If such are the
workings of the A. P. A. the sooner the
Globe roots out the society the better.
The declaration of principles upon
which this government is founded for
bids of any such a society, and any per
son who will take the obligations in
which the above expressions are con
tained is not only violating the laws of
the nation but the state as well. Every
citizen of the United States is allowed
to vote or worship as his conscience
dictates, and we trust the A. P. A. may
be speedily eradicated.
A Dangerous Enemy.
Le Sueur Sentinel.
The Globe devoted its first page on
Monday to an elaborate expose of the
Apists, or the new secret know-nothing
society styled the A. P. A., or American
Protective association. The Sentinel
has several times alluded to this dan
gerous enemy to Americanism, and now
reiterates the charge that this, or any
other secret political organization, is a
menace to American liberty which all
true Americans should condemn. Such
organizations were strongly condemned
in his day by George Washington, the
father of his country, and when, as in
this instance, they seek to array one
portion of its people against another, it
is doubly dangerous to the country. It
is to just such schemes as this that
played-out politicians and parties will
turn in the vain hope of rebuilding their
shattered political fortunes. Let every
true American take a pronounced
stand, as does this paper, against such a
contemptible and dangerous enemy.
Ought to Be Suppressed by Law.
Chicago Cltizeu.
The St. Paul, Minn.', Globe of Mon
day. Nov. 6, publishes a full expose of
the mfamous and treasonable order
known as the '-A. P. A.," or American
Protective association. The Globe, in
introducing the ritual, which is lengthy
and tedious, points out that the whole
base business is closely copied after the
ritual of the Orange order in Ireland.
A law ought to be passed defining all
such societies as treasonable, and, on
conviction, their members should be
either hanged or banished beyond the
confines of the republic. America has
no room for such wretches. They should
find a habitation in Great Britain
Lister or Canada. Fortunately, the
Catholics of America are quite able to
protect themselves if assailed, but the
government should be empowered by
law to make the existence of such con
spiracies impassible under tho starry
tint- ______________________ -
Nefarious and Reprehensible.

Last Monday's St. Paul Globe makes
a startling exposure of the American
Protective association, a society said to
be solemnly bauded together to war
upon the Roman Catholics in every
shape and form, and publishes a full
copy of the ritual and obligations, giv
ing the oaths, pass words, initiation
ceremonies, etc. If all claimed of this
secret order be true, it is one of the
most nefarious and reprehensible
schemes on record, and the sooner it is

will be for free America. Sensible peo

What is it dreads the tight of day,
Iv secret, aides itself away.
And chants the old familiar lay!
The A. P. A. .
What is it like a vulture vile,
Grows fat on venom, spew and bile,
And smells dead carcasses a mile?
The A. P. A
What is it blunderbuss and sword
In every Catholic church finds stored.
And hears the tramp of war-like horde '
The A. P. A.
What is it thinks the pope of Rome '.'
Will some day leave St. Peter's dome.
And in Columbia make his home?
The A. P. A.
What is it fetters soul and mind.
In taking oaths, just goes it blind.
Sot casts one lingering look behind?
,The A. P. A.
What is it makes our starry flag
The pretext for each bluff and brag.
And through the mire its emblems drag?
The A. P. A.
What insolently shouts, demands,
"America for Americans

How Congressman Hall Would
Raise Revenue.
Special to the Globe.
Washixgtox, Nov. 12.— "What will
congress do to provide for the fore
shadowed deficiencies in the revenue?"
was the query propounded by the
Globe correspondent to Congressman
Hall, of the Third district, and also to
Congressman Baldwin, ot the Sixth.
Mr. Hall replied substantially as fol
"It is hard to foretell the various
things that congress may do. There
are many ways in which a revenue can
be raised. I am in favor of such revision
of the tariff as will lessen every burden
of direct taxation upou the producing
classes. There is nothing more unfair
or inequitable thau our present system
of taxation. The articles most used are
taxed by the tariff laws. This is chiefly
paid by the comparatively poor man.
Then the poor man's cow is taxed just
as heavily as the rich man's cow— and
so on through the entire list. 1 am
strongly in favor of an income tax. and
a tax on inheritances. I would tax
every income above $2,500, and increase
the tax in full proportion as the income
increases. Then I would increase the
internal revenue upon spirits, and pos
sibly on beer and tobacco. These can
stand taxation. I think some or all of
these methods for revenue will be
adopted by the present congress."
Maj. Baldwin replied: "I am not un
qualifiedly in favor of tariff for revenue
only, though am most emphatically in
favor of tariff reform. I might declare
that in my judgment no state or con
gressional district in the Union would
be more emphatically benefited by ab
solute free trade than Minnesota aud
the Sixth district. 1 think that the
Democrats of . the state had better re
turn to that platform, as four years ago
we had the state almost converted to
this very honest douest doctrine, sound
ed by Knute Nelson and others. Now,
as to the question. of revenue, I am in
favor of taxing all incomes over $2,500—
a graduated tax, increasing as the In
come increases. I also favor increasing
the tax on spirits and tobacco, but not
on beer. 1 believe beer to be the bev
erage of the laboring man, and think it
conduces to the cause of real temper
ance. I shall favor these, and perhaps
other methods of raising revenue."
Washixgtox, Nov. General Su
perintendent James E. White, of the
railway mail service, has made his an
nual report to the postmaster general.
Upon this branch of the service depends
the rapid transportation of mails. At
the close of the fiscal year mails were
being carried on 166,952 miles of rail
road, for which 8,059 cars were used
with 6.417 railway clerks. There were
handled during the year 10,236,314,915
pieces of mail matter. This is an in
crease over ISSS of 49.6S per cent, while
the increase in the number of clerks is
but 13.86 per cent. For clerks' salaries
the next year $7,186,000 is asked, and an
appropriation of $3,094,000 for postal
cars is recommended. The superintend
ent says the stagnation of business has
the. effect of decreasing the mails.
He refers to the number of railroad
accidents during the past year, and
urges that some provision be made for
the families of the postal clerks who
were killed. He also renews previous
recommendations" that the salaries of
the clerks be increased, also that there
be a force of auxiliary clerks ot 150, to
be paid salaries of $250 a year in addi
tion to what they earn -as substitutes.
He also wants the mail cars and tenders
of engines vestibuled for tne safety of
A special feature of the report is the
recommendation .of a bill making it a
misdemeanor for any individual, asso
ciation or organization to Interfere with
the passage of any train carrying the
mails, and providing that any persons
or representatives of any association or
organization obstructing the mails shall
be fined and imprisoned for each of
fense. _, '-
On the day of the adjournment the
house of representatives sent to the
postmaster general an inquiry as to
whether the claims of letter carriers for
compensation for services in excess of
eight hours are being received, and
whether, in the settlement of these
claims, the service of. attorneys is nec
essary. Postmaster General Bissell has
prepared a reply in which he says these
claims are being received. Many were
on file aud bave been adjudicated, bat
have not been paid. He also says the
services of attorneys are unnecessary,
either in behalf of claimants or the gov- 1
ernment. |

Anna Eva Fay, the celebrated spirit
ualistic medium, appeared before an
audience of -2,000 peop c at the Audi
torium last night. The manager had
been unable to arrange for heat for the
halJ, and the performance was sadly
marred by the cold which made it very
uncomfortable for the audience, and
caused many to leave before the mani
festations were half over. : > V_
The manager, Mr. Pingre, made the
opening address, stating something of
the travels ot Miss Fay and her wonder
ful powers. There was upon the stage
a light wooden frame, perhaps six feet
by four, covered with curtains, and in
this so-called cabinet Miss Fay per
formed some surprising things. »
Messrs. Bancroft and Tate were
named as a committee by the audience
to go upon the stage and see that there
was a square - deal. The first placed
strong pieces of cloth around each
wrist, and then, placing her nands be
hind her back, tied these cloths to a
stout iron ring, placed a seal of
court plaster upon the knots and
nailed the cuds of the cloth to the
back of the chair. Her feet were bound
somewhat similarly, and a cloth was
placed about her neck, tied in a knot,
and the ends of the cloth nailed to the
back of the chair. In this condition she
was placed in the cabinet, which tbe
committee first examined and re
ported was unoccupied. The cur
tain was then drawn, after a
mouth organ and guitar had been
laid on her lap and immediately both
instruments were played upon. Various
other manifestations were given, such
as placing a glass of water in the cab
inet and it being emptied, etc. Finally
Mr. Tate entered the cabinet and sat
beside her with his hands on
her lap. Mr. Pingre having
first thrown a shawl over his
head, and the manifestations were re
peated. All this time the committee
reported that her hands were tied as
originally, aud the cabiuet was turned
bottom side up and shaken by the com
mittee tc show that no confederate was
concealed therein.
A close frameworK of boards was then
fitted about her chair, leaving her head
visible, aud in this condition she wrote
on paper and made other surprising
manifestations. Finally a pocketkuife
was laid upon the front of the frame,
and it was seized iv some unseen mau
mer and her bonds were quickly cut.
It was absolutely demonstrated that
she had no confederate, and her mani
festations or tricks were surprising,
eclipsing those of the cleverest sleight
of-hand operator.
W hen the rappings of the spirit hand
were given an amusing episode oc
curred. Some one called out:
"Will Wright resign?"
Miss Fay asked if that was a local
question, and on being told it was, the
spirit hand promptly answered.
"Will he be re-elected?" was the next
question, and the prompt answer came:
These replies brought down the
house, as did the one saying Mitchell
would uot whip Corbett.
. While, probably, very few in the
audience considered that spirits par
ticipated in the performance, no one
could fail to give Miss Fay credit for
being exceedingly clever. It is hardly
likely that a job lot of spirits are travel
ing about the country with Miss Fay
paying their own board bills, but the
Globe makes no attempt to explain
how the tricks were done, because it
does not know. Still, Pingre was there.
Herman must look to his laurels.

Riley and Sherley in St. Paul Sat
. urday Night.
Riley as a conversationalist is a great
surprise. He says so many funny things
on the platform and gets into so many
odd shapes that at first thought one
might suppose he lacked in dignity, but,
on coming closer to him, respect for
him is heightened; and when he leads
the conversation to literature, showing
his intimate acquaintance with both
authors and their works,the opportunity
to meet him is accorded a greater
Last year in Minneapolis on meet
ing several editors the conversation
turned on Rudyard Kipling. Riley gave
it as his opinion that Kipling was a
, greater poet than novelist, and added
that he considered it a pity that the au
thor did not take greater care with bis
productions. He said that it always ap
peared to him that Kipling ron his
"stuff" off in hot haste for some daily,
and then clipped it at both top and
bottom to make it fit tbe column.
If any one doubts that Riley's works
are not carefully prepared let them con
sider his criticism of Kipling, and then
also read his prose sketch "A Remark
able Man." He writes as he talks,
easily, but not carelessly.
Messrs. Riley and Sherley will be seen
at Ford's Music hall Saturday evening
of this week. A typographical error was
misleading as to the time when the sale
of seats was to begin. It begins at 9a.

Gen. Thomas Severe on Bond In
vestment Companies.
Washixgtox, Nov. 12. — Assistant
Attorney-General Thomas, of the post
office department, has had many inqui
ries about the reports that the depart
ment had consented to let the bond in
vestment companies transact their busi
ness through the mails. Gen. Thomas
says :
"The department, as well as myself,
has been in these reports put in a false
attitude towards these companies. In
the consideration of the questions in
volved in the schemes of these com
panies, 1 have persistently refused to
pass on them as schemes devised to de
fraud the public, for the reason that 1
uniformly held them to be lotteries.
But these companies are now trying to
modify their plans of business, and, if
they succeed in that, 1 will be driven to
the consideration and decision of the
question whether fraud is involved in
tnem or not. I wish to say most em
phatically that I have not endorsed
them, aud 1 shall hesitate long before I
give them, as now handled, my sanc
