plain thatth bl:nest Protestant

"This Miionaiy Congress
is a simple natural conse
quence of Catholic-principles
aud from these principles
there follows the answer to
the question, 'What does this
movement mean V It means
that we propose to make this
North American continent
Catholic; to bring America
to Jeus through the divine
doctrines of the Catholic
church and under the su
preme spiritual shepherdship
of the pope of Rome."

"Common Cauee," but Bird S.
Coler, a Jesuit in disguise, posing
as a Methodist for the purpose of
pulling the wool over the eyes of
Protestants, is one of the leadiLg
spirits in the organization.
Coler is one of those fellows
who hob-nobs with the priests and
prelates of Rome, then with Prot
estants aud laboring men, and
tries to persuade them that their
interests are ideutical, and that
their objects are one and tde same.
He is the man who wants the
state to defray the expense of the
parochial schools of Rome,- and
who objects to the inspection of
Rome's slave pens on Ihe ground
that it is interfering with con
science and religion,

The people of the oountry can-
uot be fooled any longer by men
of the Coler and Windle stripe.
1 hey are beginning to think for

o easily hoodwinked as they once
were, lo tne intelligent mind the
apologists for Rome are amusing

Rome is floundering in water too
