WATSON ON ROUSE DEFYING LAW,
Scathing Arraignment of RomeY Enmity of
Democracy, Free Institution and Rights.
In the Jeffersonian for Nov
ember 9tb, Hon Thomas E. Wat
son thus points out the essential
ly treasonable and lawless spirit
of the Roman hierarchy. Mr.
Watson is not only an able lawyer
and statesman; he is one of the
best informed historical authors
in America. His word therefore
in reference to the treasonable
. present attitude of the faithful
'sons of the Veazy law,, is worthy
of the serious consideration of
every true American:
Some years ago, when the
French republic annulled the
concordat which Napoleon had
signed with Pope Pius VII, and
enacted, instead, a law which
separated church and state, com
pelling the monasteries and con
vents to take out state licenses,
and discontinuing the ten million
dollar annual subsidy which the
State paid to the Roman church,
the rage of the American Ro
manists was almost equal to that
of the Italians, the Spaniards,
and the Ultramontane French.
Cardinal Gibbons shot xff his
gun, as usual, and Bishop Keiley
of Savannah was equally vehe
ment. With a truculent insolence
which was wholly unprovoked,
Keiley declared that, if ever the
State, in this country, au opted
any legislation which the -toman
church considered an inU-inge-ment
on its rights, thocO laws
worild be defied and resis .ed.
In other words, the Roman
church, which is foreign, in its
constitution, its code and : :s gov
ernment, will decide, for itself,
what part of our legislation it
sit will acquire domicile in this
tjotfntry, will srnbjts, much prop
f Grty as it possibly can, will enjoy
exemptions" from taxation as an
American church, will claim for
its votaries the fullest exercise
of American privileges, and will
exert its utmost efforts to control
out law-making and our govern
mental policies; but it will re
main foreign, exclusive, tuid sup
erior. to the extent of ,1 -fusing
to obey such laws as the Italian
pope adjudges detrimental as hi?
Thus, one church the only
one which is ruled by foreign
laws and a foreiern head will be
partly American, and partly Eu
ropean; partly subject to out
laws and partly exempt from
them; and we must allow this
one church to expand, iutrench
itself, and become irresistible,
although it is the church ia exist
ence or that ever did exist
which has a monarchial code of
laws, a monarchial politsal or
ganization, a monarchial head, a
monarchial government, and
monarchial polity, in wb ch the
laymen has no voice, no vote, no
representation, ne power, and no
method of protest against wrongs
inflicted upon him by the hier

Can we maintain and perpetuate

CLOSING RUMANIANS IN NEW TRAP.
From Transylvania Alps 'Region la
Daneer of Mm Cat Off.
Lonaon, Nov. 21. Austro-Ger-man
forces pushing eastward
through southwest Rumania have
captured the town of Craiova and
the Rumanians who are retreat
ing down the Jiul valley and at
other points from the Transylv
anian Alps region apparently are
in danger of being cut off.
Troops of King Ferdinand in
the Jiul valley have reached Fil
liash but here they are outflanked
by the Teutonic Allies at Craiova
and without the aid of a railroad
to convey them eastward, seem
ingly must he caught on the
plains of Wallachia in the vise of
the Austro-Germans which is
closing in on them both from the
north and the south.
Added peril to the Rumanians
ia this region is noted in the con
tinued advance of the Teutonic
Allies on the Alt valley, south of
the Rothenthurm Pass, where
Petrograd admits the Rumanians
are retiring slcwly southward.
An advance eastward alongthe
railway 25 miles to Slatina would
give the Austro-Germans this
important railroad town and com
pel the retreating Rumauians in
the Alt valley also to take the
high roads in an endeavor to
escape in the direction of Buch
