There is" something' striking in

Gcrui.ty ..ibies are examined.
Th-i !o4sof people fret themselves
to de-..i or- but their lives out

It will be noticed that, excepting
Washington, every President down
to Harrison, who stood at the half
century mark of the goyernment,
ha3 exceeded the expectation of life
at the time of his inauguration.
From Harrison down, the result is
Why this difference? Haye the
increasing perplexities of the gov
ernment caused this? Yet these
men were not confronted with the
currency question as it now is.
Within the past ten days, two
events haye occurred that indicate
upon what ba3is the declaration and
blessing of religious liberty and
toleration in this country stand.
The scenes of these two events are
in the bounds of the civilized and
enlightened North one of them the
very cradle and nursery of know
ledge and literary attainments. The
South regrets to see coming from
the North such examples of vioU"
tions of one of the fundamental
principles of this government to
worship God according to the dic
tates of one's own conscience.
Though the South has courteously
invited Mormons coming within its
borders to seek other pastures. But
there is no worship of God in that
Both conflicts were between Pros
testants and Catholics. The anti
Catholic parade assumed the ap
pearance ot being under the A. P,
A. The little red echoolhouse was
mounted on wheels to represent the
Ark ot the Covenant. Such a de
monstrtion does not go beyond the
law, and ought not to be molested in
any American city. Neither the
little schouihouse, nor the figuring
of the A. P. A. aroused the Catho
lics and precipitated the row.
It is said that "the thing to which
exception was taken and which pro
voked the attack wan a bit of orange
trimming on the dress of one of the
women. So the Cutholics became
the aggressor on a day dedicated to
freedom of thought and opinion,
and to the right of every man-to life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
On the same day, in one of the
Southern counties of Indiana, where
few but native Americans live, a
little colony of German Catholics
were celebrating our natal anniyer
sary in picnic fashion. Early in the
afternoon a band of men appeared
on the grounds who. seemed to have
hitched their horses near by and
come armed and with the purpose of
attacking the picknickers. A bloody
not followed, in which, from the re
ports now obtainable, a score of
lives were sacrificed, and during
which some savage atrocities were
perpetrated. Here the Protestants
were as clearly the aggressors as
were the Catholics in Boston.
It is juat to say that the action of
the Catholics in Boston and the
Protestants in Indiana will be con
demned by the public. The great
mass of American citizens will con
demn both as plain violations of the
law of this country. It is safe to
say, however, that the lawbreakers of
Massachusetts and Indiana will find
