He continued it. Was no exaggeration on his part to say that we whre still living in the time of martyrs. He had no reason to doubt the accuracy of the news Given in the american paper a cutting from which he held in his hand. Needless to say the cutting was from a Catho lic paper. Terrible happenings were taking place , but the press of the United states of America was silent regarding the atrocities. The whole of the press of the British Empire was also. As silent As the grave the shooting of the priests and the Terible idea i of the nun would not have been known to them if he had not received the press Cut Ting. The paper that gave an account of the. Atrocities had Only a very restricted circulation. Dreadful things occurring. If such Devilish work were done in Spain or Italy or Ireland every paper in the British Empire and beyond would print the accounts with Dis played headings across two or three columns. The other Day they saw. What the papers were capable of doing when they gave prominence to an alleged happening in a Convent at Valladolid in Spain. The Story went around the Globe and it was devoid of any truth. Whatever it had to be contradicted but. It was hard to Over take the slander there was no sym Pathy for the martyred nuns priests and people and nothing appeared in the papers even although diabolical things were occurring or. Ferguson had told a dreadful Story of the horrors and All that they could do was to Pray for the unfortunate mexicans and Trust that god in his great mercy would come to their Rescue before any More diabolical work was done and before the Church was exterminated. A Sydney comment. Writing of the same subject the Sydney freemen s journal says now the mexican question cannot be settled in Australia. The regime responsible for barbarities which re Call the Days of Nero and the earlier persecutions of christians will eventually crash whether our dailies print truths or half truths. And the curtain will be lifted and the world will see Mexico As she really is sooner or later despite All the efforts of Calles s publicity staff. What is the object then of our local prints in printing the Calles version of mexican affairs so slavishly especially when not an editor in Australia but knows that there is quite another Gide to the Story is the answer anti Catholic prejudice what other answer can there be when we reflect upon the probable attitude of the press if the same kind of persecutions were directed against a protestant Popula Tion when a methodist missionary. Is murdered in China the press rings with it yet Here we have had Catho lic archbishops hunted Down like wolves priests put against a Wall like bandits. Nuns killed and assaulted churches sacked schools and Presby. Teries wrecked arid the most the pub lic is told is. That there is trouble Between the Church and the state even to Day despite the fact that a London daily was moved eventually to enquire into und denounce the most inhuman and illegal mexican happenings our australian papers will hot Budge from the Calles versions it is not Cricket nor is it decent Jour dualism. But this is exactly. What we shall Haye to Elf lure Xintu the mexican catholics can. Get their Stoi properly across allocable regarding the mexican situation if a considerable amount of Salt.

For this cause alone the guard broke his hands and mutilated his ears nose Tongue and eyes. He died on the train and his body was abandoned at Encarna Cion de Diaz. Senorita Maria Guadalupe Chaires of Ciudad Victoria was asked to divulge a priest s hiding place. As she refused the soldiers began Toter off her fingers the mutilation continued till she became exhausted and they finally killed her. At Tula Hidalgo the Mother Superior of the nuns of Eutia was shot and the nuns delivered to the soldiery. The Parish priest who was ill was also shot and his body and that of. The Mother Superior were burned in a fire made of statues. Blackmail a Factor in persecution. A blackmailer caused the execution of father Humberto pro Juarez the first Jesuit persecuted unto death by the Calles regime it is revealed Here by the trial of a police agent says a despatch from Mexico City. Alvaro Basail the defective who was assigned the investigation of the attack on Obregon last november and who sent father pro his brother and two others to execution after a farcical court martial was arrested a few Days ago on a charge made by father Vicente Diaz. Father dist complained directly to the Secretary of police that Basail had threatened him i. H arrest for violation of. The anti religious Laws if he did not Handi Over a Large sum As blackmail Money. Graft stopped an investigation was ordered and it was found that the detective had been systematically victimizing catholics by blackmail threatening them with arrest if they did not pay. Basail has now been sent to the tres Marias penal Colony. Following the revelations an order has been issued by the authorities that when persons Are arrested Here after on charges of violation of the anti religious Laws their cases shall go to th4 attorney general. It was contended at the time that. Father pro and his companions were seized upon As victims so As to make a show of punishing those guilty of the attack on Obregon that at least two of the four were out of. The City or in other parts of it when the at tack took place. The chief of police reported that the four had confessed but this report never was believed especially since the utmost precautions were taken to keep the mock court martial secret. Later it is asserted that the Man who attacked Obregon was definitely known to have escaped. A reprieve. Of father pro and his companions was granted but the execution was rushed so that the order arrived just too late from the. Courts. It will be noticed that similar at tempts to implicate catholics in the assassination of Obregon Are being made a press Cable states that the Assassin has made a Complete Confes. Sion.
