DONNELLY - SIMS DEBATE
ON THE PROSCRIPTIVE A. P. A. OR

Donnelly Exposed the Heinous
Character of the Organization
and Kiddled the Monstrosity—
A Bigotry Which Would Lead
to Starvation, Murder and
Market hall was well filled last night
with A. P. A. enthusiasts and others
who were desirous of hearing thtfe duel
of words between Ignatius Donnelly,
the orator and champion of free thought
and speecii, on one side, and Prof.
Walter Sims, of Grand Rapids, Mich.,
the founder and champion of the
A. P. A. The gathering was divided in
its sympathies and was profuse in its
expressions of approval. Occasional
statements made by Prof. Suns wera
jtreeied with hisses indicative of dissent
from the truth of the statements, but
the speakers were not treated discourte
ously further than that. Mr. Donnelly
\v;is once or tsvice hissed, and
when he rose for his final
reply paused a few moments for a dis
turbance to suoside. cause! by a num
ber of the men in the front part of the
hal!, who had bern applauding Prof.
Sims at frequent intervals, leaving the
hail. Mr. Donnelly tired a shot at the
retreating men to the effect that they
seemeu unwilling to hear both sides of
The meeting was, on the whole, an
enthusiastic one, and, owing to the
gooii-natured way in which Mr. Don
nelly handled his mid of the argument,
went away in good humor. There is
no doubt that the humor, wit and
sarcasm ot Mr. Donnelly in meeting
the statements of his opponent made a
favorable impressiun on even those who
might be disposed to the A. P. A. Prof.
Sims took much of Mr. Donnelly's
speech in a very good-natured way, and
many times laughed heartily at the wit
and humor of the Sage. Mr. Sims
made no effort to reply to the hard
blows struck by Mr. Donnelly, but
stuck closely to his notes. On the otiier
hand. Mr. Donnelly attacked one after
anotner of the chief statements of Mr.
Sims, and carried tlitt house with him in
his ridicule and denial of the inaccura
cies and mi emanating from
the A. P. A. side of the debate.
Capt. Henry A. Castle acted as chair
man. He made a humorous speech at
the beginning, in which he told the au
dience that they were not invited to
seats on the platform, not to take part
in the debate except they should be
challenged to do so by the debaters. He
had consented to act as umpire or
starter for the debate, and had as one
qualification for the position a dense
ignorance of the subject.
TIIK IMPORTED CANADIAN.
Prof. Sims was auuonnced to make a
twenty-five-minute speech as the open
ing. He arose from his table at the
sta^e, and as he came forward with a
large A. P. A. badge on his breast
was greeted with hearty applause
from people in the front of the
hall. He began by declaring he
is a member of the American Protective
association, which he claimed was
framed lor the protection of homes and
and schools, which he believed was
raise d up for the righteous purpose of
fighting, the Roman Catholic church.
The parochial schools of that church
were assailed as being an interference
with the rights of American citizenship.
lie declared that the pope wants to rule
America and propagate treason against
the country, and claims the right to ab
solve the members of the church from
oaths of allegiance and observance of
laws. He expressed surprise that no
American flag was found in the hall,
and charged the Catholic church with
proscribing its use iv the churches of
Prof. Sims declared that the pope, the
Archbishops, the bishops and the priests
dictate the politics of the members of
the church, for which statement he was
greeted with hisses. He then made a
tirade against the Catholics, as be
ing known by their hissing,
and declared that Protestants do
not go to a meeting to hiss. He con
tinued by saying that when a Catholic
dies he has to confess whether or not he
ever voted against the instructions of
the priest, aud was again greeted
with hisses. "There you go again,"
lie said. "You are Catholics." Aud
he fairly clenched his fists and
hurled the declaration through his teeth.
•'No one can go behind the returns of
an election but the priests. You must
Bubinit your politics to ecclesiastical
dictation." Hisses were again heard at
tiie end of this.
He declared that in Cathoiic countries
there were a great majority of illegiti
mate children, and was again hissed.
He declared that a publication in an
Eastern paper was made to the effect
that the pope had organized a council

Prof. Sims proclaimed that the A. P. A.
will become a great party that will wipe
the other parties out of existence.
MB. IiOXM-Ml's REPLY.
Mr. Donnelly was greeted with rounds
of applause when he arose for his lirst
Borty-five-mluute speech. lie began
by alluding to former debates with
Piof. Sims, and said he thought they
had done good in modifying the
wrath of sects. He regarded the debate
rs rather lop-sided from trie fact
that Prof. Siiiii attacks the theolozy of
the church, and it would be better to
bave a theologian to answer him. The
reason he was in the fight is that his
sympathies are with the under dog in
the figlit. He never in his iife belonged
to any church. Hj w.is there merely
to defend the 6,599.000 Catholics
against the other 38,000,000. He
had originally been a Democrat
but admitted that his politics had been
somewhat speckled, but he was always
for the issue that he believed to be
right. He defends the Catholic church
on general principles. He recounted
the instances of history in which Catho
lics persecuted Protestants and Protest-
auts beheaded Catholics and then turned
to burning Puritans at the stake and to
persecuting (jacFi other.
Proceeding Mr. Donnelly asked,
"Should tho Protestants ail unite in a
fhtirch in which the members should
pwear ai^wiio enter as member* not to
|ive a Catholic an office? That Is
proscription." He added. "Will you
'persecute an Irishman because bis
Father was a Catholic and had inher
ited his religion, and thus prevent Him
from earning his bread? You would
zive him freedom of conscience, but he
must starve for It. This is not justice.
Suppose a poor woman went to an A.
P. A. for washing to do to support
her seven children. If, she admit
ted that her ancestors were Catholic
the A. P. A. member would tell her that
he had taken an oath not to give her
work, and her children must starve, be
cause he could not violate his oath.
"Suffer little children to come unto
me," said Christ, "for of such is the
kingdom of heaven." "Suffer the chil
dren to starve, for of such is the king
dom of hell," say the A. P. A.
Applause lasting several minutes
mingled with laughter greeted this an
Mr. Donnelly alluded to the fact that
the Pnsbyt rians and the Episcopalians
have parochial schools, and told an
incident that led him to believe that
they were not able to eradicate the
devil from the children, lie asked if
Christ had on the cross advised the
formation of a secret sociey like
the A. P. A. He alluded to the fact
tiiat the country was building up in
prosperity and all living together in
fellowship until the A. P.A. cama along
with its leaders, principally from Can
ada, to preach dissensions, hatred and
proscription. The riots in other cities
were alluded to as tending to a
time when there will be burning at
the stake. "This is turning back the
dials of time. In place of living to
gether in harmony we are becoming two
nations living side by side and hating
each other. The Catholic church pre
served the literature and civilization of
the country. The church liberated the
serfs and rescued the world from bar
I aon't believe the people of St. Paul
can come down so far as to believe the
darned nonsense that the A. P. A.'s aro
preaching. When my friend says the
Catholics cannot be good citizens, 1
ask him to read our history. I don't
believe he read our history until
he entered this debate." Later on
Mr. Donnelly alluded to Prof. Sims'
recent coming to this country from
Canada. Replying to the statements
that the Catholics gave their sympathies
to the Confederacy and were not good
citizens, Mr. Donnelly alluded to the
deeds of Gen. Mead, a Catholic of
Catholics; to Gen. Sheridan and to
Gen. Sherman and asked why the pope
had not directed them to let the re
bellion succeed if he wanted the Union
to fail. As to the statement that the
assassination of Lincoln was due to a
Catholic conspiracy, Mr. Donnelly
proved that John \Vilkes Booth was an
Episcopalian, and the man who tried to
assassinate Secretary Stantou was the
son of Baptist minister.
Mr. Dounelly declared that at the in
ception of the A. P. A. some scamps
had gathered together some bogus state
ments which have been used since to
carry out a purpose. Mr. Donnelly
riddled a communication said to have
emanated from Catholic authority
which was claimed to have been
published in 1852, claiming that an or
ganization had been formed to control
populous cities, among them being
Washington, San Francisco and Kansas
City, as well as others which were not
populous cities in 1852. Mr. Donnelly
declared tha publication a forgery, and
with having emanated from A. P. A.
sources at a "much later date than 1552.
He declared that the A. P. A. was
gotten up by England to disturb our
currency, and by the capitalists to de
stroy our commodities and to reduce
the wages of tiie working people.
An A. P. A. is required to swear not
to go iv a strike with a Catholic. This
would prevent a strike ever occurring,
and suit the English and capitalists,
who would rub their hands in glee and
say: "Look at them fi^htine like devils
for the good of the nation and murder
ing each other for the leve of God."
In His concluding speech of twenty
minutes Mr. Duunellv made some hard
hits at the A. P. A. He declared that
some of the documents alluded to by
Prof. Sims were forgeries, and were as
ridiculous as the statement in tiie A. P.
A. papers that the Catholics were to
rise up last August and murder all the
Protestants. He told of tho burn
ing of two Catholic churches in
Philadelphia where he was living as a
boy, and th« killing of Catholics in a
riot, and added no prot«stant church
was ever burned by a Catholic. lie
said the people of Dublin elected a
protestant mayor, and that the chosen
leader of the Irish, Mr. Parnell, was a
protestant. If, as claimed by Mr.
Sims, ttat the Catholics would proscribe
Catholics, he wanted to know why they
don't do it in Italy and other Catholic
The A. P. A.'s talk of the bishops con
trolling the politics of their people.
Archbishop Ireland is a Republican,
and he can't get one-tenth of the Cath
olics to go with him. it was the Cath
olics that defeated a Democratic candi
date lor governor named liiennann.
Who is it that organizes for proscrip
tion? It is the A. P. A.'s.
Mr. Donnelly was greeted with hisses
at this point. Mr. Donnelly referred to
tiie fact Ghat President Lincoln sent
Archbishop Hughes to ask that Cath
oiics do not aid tne South in the re
bellion, lie declared that si majority of
tho Crtthoiic men in tlie country were in
the Union army during the rebellion.
Mr. Donnelly said it was Bauer, a
German Catholic, who organized the
A. P. A., and who changed his name to
Bowers, and lie is a raiiroad attorney.
With one of his impressive gestures
Mr. Donnelly said: "Don't you see that
they are playing you lor suckers?"
At the conclusion the audience gave
vent to rounds of applause and reluct
autly left the hall.

FRIEND OF THE VETERANS.
What the Grand Army Gazette
Thinks of Commissioner Lioefi
Under the heading "Commissioner
Lochren Needs No Apologist" the
Grand Army Gazette and National
Guardsman pays the following tribute
to the character of Minnesota's brave
Jertain partisan congressmen and
hide-bound journals are poring vials of
impotent wrath on the head of Pension
Commissioner Lochren, on trumped up
charges of "unfair" treatment of veter
ans who are on the pension roll.
Commissioner Lochren is himself a
veteran, having served as a private, a
non-commissioned anil a commissioned
officer in the First Minnesota infante?
regiment daring inn War of the Rebell
ion. At Gettysburg he was one of the
immortal 262* that at Hancock's order
charged the rebel lines advancing on
Cemetery lull, and snatched victory
from defeat. On forty battlefields he
proved himself a worthy and heroic sol
dier, and no stain rests upon his record
made during the war and since. He
certainly needs no apologist either
among his comrades or the honorable
men of the nation.
His predecessor. Commissioner Black,
was likewise made the target of veno
mous shafts from bitter partisans dur
ing the preceding presidental term of
Cleveland. Bo*h Commissioners Loch
reu and Black, by valiant service in
the war, earned the right to b& fairly
criticised by their fellow citizens. They
have a right to be Democrats if their
political predilections are tl.at way.
Both have aimed to be just in adminis
tering the great trust reposed in them,
of being stewards ot the nation's bounty
to worthy veterans.
Unfortunately, some of their Repub
lican predecessors and successors have
been inclined the other way. The Tan
ners and the Ratlins have been smirched
by their misconduct of the pension
bureau, as is abundantly proven by the
extracts from official government docu
ments published in the January num
ber of the Gazette.
Commissioners Blac\ and Lochren
having taken an oath to fulfill their
duties as pension commissioner, obeyed
the dictates of their conscience. With
what result? This: During sixteen
years of Democratic rule the house of
representatives has Beat to the senate
bills appropriating 1.000, 000 in pen
sions, while in the previous eighteen
years of Republican rule the house had
appropriated only $670, 000,000.
Th« fact of the matter is that under
the administration of Commissioner
Lochren the pension bureau has been
run on strictiy business principles while
under his predecessors. Tanner and
Raum; the bureau was nothing but a
huge mill for the grinding out of pen
sion claims. Under that unfair conduct
of its affairs, it is credibly asserted that
1,000 pension certificates a day were
issued, one clerk being promoted be
cause of the fact that he turned out
cases at the rate of one in every four
minutes, or 2.400 cases a month.
Th« result is, such unearthing of
frauds as at Norfolk, New Orleans and
Chattanooga, in New Mexico, lowa and
Minnesota, in Buffalo, N. V., and in
Hudson County, N. J., whereby honest
Commissioner Loch re has vindicated
himself, with the result, since Decem
ber 23 of last year, of 23 arrests, 82 in
dictments and 61 convictions of fraud
ulent pensioners, and many other cases
which would astonish some if made
What the Gazette has claimed all
is thus proven beyond dispute— that
one of the great parties in its greed for
power has leaned so far over toward the
veterans that it either could not or
would not see tho frauds being per
The other party, on the other hand,
has faithfully administered the law,
believing that if the law were unjust,
as Gen. Grant once said, the quickest
way to force its repeal was by enforc
Not one scandal has arisen under the
Black and Lochren administrations of
the pension bureau, and under them
the roll is one that our war crippled
heroes deem it a great honor to have
their names upon.
All henorabie and true veterans bid
you god-speed, brave Commissioner
Lochren, in your efforts t» purity the
pension roll, and you can well afford to
pay no heed to the unworthy curs who
are barkiug at your heels.
YOUNG BETRAYER KILLED.
An Indignant Father Murders
His Daughter's Seducer.
Chattanooga. Term., April 14.—
For a year or so John Mullendoso, son
of Lafayette Mullendoso. has been
devoting himself to Mary Montgomery,
daughter of Capt. Robert Montgom
ery. The girl's parents demanded an
explanation and she named Mullendoso
as her betrayer. The father of the girl
look his shotgun and went after the
young man. He met him in company
with his father. "Marry my daughter
or I will kill you," the girl's father
said. Young Mullendoso said he would
not. The other raised his gun. The
boy's father put his hand to the muzzle
of the weapon to save his son. The dis
charge blew off his hand and killed the
young man as well.
Their Wedding Journey.
A bride and groom set out gallantly
from Philadelphia on their wedding
journey. SJiowers of ricey blessings

form of shoes and slippers followed
them. They paused in New York long

sister whom tho bride had left at home
The happy woman, looking as brave
and uubfidelike as possible, inspected
half the articles in the shop, and finally
selected a dainty thing In silver and
asked that it be sent to her hotel. A
clerk wrapped ud the object and turn
ing, pencil in baud, inquired of the
"What name, please?"
Alas for the vanity of human pride
and human bravery. The little bride,
who appeared so self-possessed when
no questions were asked her, blushed in
confusion as her name came to her
mind, stammered, and finally, turning
pleadingly to her husband, said:
"You tell him, dear."

McKinley's Bloviation There

boring Man— Shot and Shell. *
Buxtox, N. D., April B.— My Dear
Readers: * We do not claim to know alt
about tariff reform, tariff for revenue
and tariff for protection, but we have an
idea or two on our foreign and domestic,
relations. While William McKinley is
talking about the mistake of the people
in kicking the Republicans out of
power, let us examine a few facts and
conditions aud see if it is true. William
knows it all. and the people did not
know what they were doing, and should
change back .. We know he feels sore.
He has a right to. He and his party
trot a terrible blow. He may argue till
the end of time. When he gets through,
facts and natural conditions remain un
If the cause of the present dull times
is not because the Democrats contem
plate a change in Mr. McKinley's tariff
fur protection, then his preaching is in
vain and the faith of the Republican
party is also in vain. In others words,
if a tariff to protect the manufacturer
does not also protect the labor employed
to carry on the protected factory, then
m'kixi.ey's doctkixe is false
and his preaching and the hope of the
Republican party must fall.
The only reason Riven as a right to
maintain a tariff for protection is that it
protects . the American laboring
man from having his wages
reduced to the scale of the pauper
laborer of Europe. That by giving the
home manufacturer a monopoly of the
home market it makes a philanthropist
of him, and by reason of this favor
shown him by .Hie government, he turns
around and pays labor a good price
rewards it high above foreign labor.
This is the McKinley doctrine. And
great stress is laid about not letting
American labor get down on a level
with foreign labor. He speaks of this
as though it would disgrace his party.
lam not down on foreigners the way
, McKinley appears to be. I should be
"atraid they would rise up and order me
out of the country.
When he presented his views to a large
audience in Minneapolis on a tariff to
protect the manufacturer, for the ben
efit of the laboring man -some of whom
had to pay $10 to hear him— explain the
cause of hard times, he was welcomed
to the state of Minnesota
BY A SCANDINAVIAN
Republican governor. Gov. Nelson is a
good man, and an able one. But wheth
er he was elected on account of his su
perior ability as a man and a Repub
lican, or, as a recognition of his nation
ality, to hold them in the Republican
line— as some good Republicans claim— %
1 cannot pay, for 1 am not a member of
the party, and don't know. But there
is one thing certain, there are a great
many Scandinavians in Minnesota, and
they. have worked hard and voted well,"
and it is only good politics to let one haye r
an office occasionally. A man from Maine •
could not hold a large Scandinavian
element in line half as well as one of
their own nationality, In the first place,
he cannot talk to them and explain ;
Republicanism in Scandinavian. They
hava helped settle and create the wealth,
of this Northwestern country, and are
entitled to representation. We don't
claim, as some do, that giving a foreign
er an office is an indirect bribe to gain
his support and win over his followers
— that the only difference is you put up
honor and win . him; with office in one
case; the other :■•] : : v: .•_•.■
YOU PAY COLD CASH.
It is true there are a great many full
blooded, native-born American politi
cians, who have labored, industriously
in Republican caucuses and conventions
for years, and would appreciate getting
a little start and foothold in a horn
office, but have never been able to do
so, because there is no protection
against foreign competition in this in
Mr. McKiniey dwells very elaborately
upon the benefits to labor of protection
given to the manufacturer. Let us ex
amine this strange doctrine. Why pass
protection to the manufacturer solely
aud alone, and then trust to his gener
osity solely and alone, to pass it over to
the laboring man? Why not pass it di
rectly to the laborer as well as the man
ufacturer.aud treat them alike? Or, why
not pass it to the laborer alone, and
trust him to pass it to the manufacturer
in order to keep his wages up? Just
turn this protective theory for the ben
efit of labor over and see how it looks.
It will be necessray for Mr. McKilney
to speak once more, and
FOR THE LABOIUNG MAN
to pay more than 10 to fuily explain
the benefits of protection to labor,
where it is given to the manufacturer
alone for the benefit of the laborer.
Is it not true that all labor comes into
this country absolutely free, and always
has. It is not true that the pauper
labor of Europe has been Invited to
come here and seek employment in our
free, unprotected, labor market, and has
found ready employment with protect
ed industries, and the home laborer has
been turned out to tramp, and is now
looking to such men as Coxev for a
Moses to lead him out of the wilderness,
because a foreign pauper has his job?
Is it not also true that when this home
laborer became a tramp because a for
eign pauper got his unprotected job the
protected manufacturer never said a
word about giving him anything extra
when he left because the government
was protecting him? Will some gentle
man who preaches tariff for protection
Is it not true that the gate to this
country stands wide open, and that for
eigners have always been invited to
swarm here, and are now swarming at
the rate of a half-milll6n a year?
Is it not true, till restricted by law,
that steamship companies have scoured
foreign countries and brought foreign*
ers over here and thrown them onto a
free labor market just to make business
for their transportation lines, without:
any regard to -'American citizenship or
Is it not true that the foreign laborer,
coining here free, without any tariff on
his head, has
DESTROYED THE HOME MARKET

foreigners hare been brought over here
as ballast? And when reaching this

being shoveled out, and spread over
this country to swell tht rapks of free

Donnelly's "Caesar's Column." But he
can do so after hearing Mr. McKinley's
doctrine of protection. When a pro
tectionist like Mr. MeKinley can over
look the fact that the growth of this
country is due solely and alone
TO NATURAL ADVANTAGES,
that it is almost unbounded in extent
and resources; that by having a large
amount of public land and making it
entirely free for foreigners to come here
and put a full voice into everything, it
has urawn an immense number of con
sumers, and the manufacturer has fat
tened on these imported consumers,
drawn here by free land for homes
and a free and open labor market. Now
that the farm product has grown so
great, produced by foreigners on free
land here, and the labor market is
overrun by reason of no tariff on labor,
Mr. McKiuiey says it is fear of disturb
ing his "tariff protection." When a
man can overlook all great truths and
natural advantages; when he can go
back to the time when people were
crossing the Atlantic in sail boats, and
St. Paul and Minneapolis were unheard
of; when the country where these cities
now stand was the home of the
Indian and the buffalo; when the spin
ning wheel was in use. and there was
not as much gold in the country as the
Vanderbilts now control; when ■ he can
go back to these times, and overlook the
fact that the entire wealth of the coun
try is now in a few hands, and claim
that protection is still necessary to the
men who have all the money in order
that they may continue to look after the
fellows who have none; when a man
can stand up and preach this, and find
people ready and willing to swallow it,
it shows a state of igaorance
THICKER THAN A LONDON FOG.
A man like Mr. MeKinley, who de
ceives the people and imposes upon
their ignorance with such a doctrine is
on a par with the anarchist and bomb
thrower. He is a dynamiter, who blows
off men's heads with false ideas, in
.■ stead of blowing them off with ex
While the largest cities in the United
States— like New York and Chicago
are controlled by foreign votes, and
; green flags ana red flags are being con
stantly raised by the side of the stars
aud stripes, it is a -very weak
argument to claim that the Re
publican tariff for protection Is
to keep laboring men here from getting
down on a level with pauper labor in
£nrope, when our own home laborers
Uave been made paupers by asking for
eign paupers to dome here and run
them out. The subject of the next let
ter will be "Weaning an Infant."
