A protestant writes As follows m a it Issue of the Milwaukee journal to the editor of Tho journal for Tho Bonewit of our protestant Brethren a great Many of which arc being deluded by Tho contemptuous underhanded secret society known As the american protective association i would give my View of this society As seen by an ardent protestant. Any Ono who condescended to read their papers and possessed with any understanding would Sec that mendacity was the supremo characteristic of their papers and that the editor enjoy perfect Felicity by indulging in to Muir mendacious writings relative to the Catholic Church. The protestant Church teaches us to love one another yet Many of our protestant ministers ulivo co operated with tins obnoxious society which lunches its members even commands them to hate their Catholic Brethren and does All in their Power both by word and pen to nourish this hatred. Tho society through their execrable Organ seem to make Tho Sisters of Charity the special object to their unprovoked hatred. Now protestant readers listen to the dictates of your hearts and i am sure they will Tell you to respect those Sisters of Charity and condemn their mendacious enemies. 1-i0w Many protestants As Well As catholics who having been injured through some casualty wore brought under Tho hospitality of those Gonzlo Sisters who by a incessant and indefatigable vigilance nursed them Back to life and health such work As this can emanate from none but Tho pure and just their work is grand and even Sublime. I heir enemies who try to detract from their Good name and who profess to do it for their god and country Merit nothing less than execration of All Good christians regardless of sects or Creed. Thoy whose hearts Are sordid and callous Are incapable of doing any Good. It is a pitiable fact that Many of our ministers advocate and propagate this i decorous society but these ministers Are to to pitied rather than censured. Protestants do you not Seo what should be obvious to All that Tho teachings of the protestant Church and the Moalli which every member of the a. P. A. Must take Are incompatible and con hiding there is but one action hint All christians must take Anil that is  either remain faithful to the Church Anil condemn araism or favor araism and condemn Tho Church. Signed a protestant. Runny schools. Theodore Roosevelt delivered an address in Boston last wednesday evening on True americanism in Tho Public schools which contained sound doctrine especially deserving the thoughtful attention of extremists of both varieties Tho hostile sectarian and Tho fanatic anti sectarian. Among other things he said because to Aro unqualified Day Anil without reservation against any system of denominational schools maintained by the adherents of any Creed with Tho help of state Aid therefore we As strenuously insist that Tho Public school shall be fro from sectarian influences and above All from any attitude of hostility to the adherents of any particular Creed Anil we denounce As the worst Foos of Tho Public schools those who under Tho pretence of Friendship for Thorn stir up hostility toward Thorn by seeking to discriminate in their name against those people who hold a Given religious belief. Exactly As to Welcome to them alike Tho children of Jow and Gentilo of Catholic and protestant so to insist that in their management no Ono Creed shall Havo any special jurisdiction but Tho professors of All creeds to treated alike in Ordor that every american citizen without regard to what his own private religious belief May be shall Feol that to has As much Yoice As any other Man whether of his own Faith or of Somo different Faith in the management of Tho schools to which his children go. In other words our plea is simply that in your treatment of Tho common school you act As every Man should act in american Public life As a whole. We have a right to demand that every Man native born or foreign born shall in american Public life act Morely As an american. A iwo it mis. Another newspaper has been started at Menominee the new Era and from the Tenor of its wretchedly written Salut Atory the mining journal presumes that it is to be an Organ of the a. P. A from the fact that initial number has been sent to this Olloe we assume that the new Era desires an Exchange with the mining Jour Dai. It will not be accorded that Pou Rosy. The mining journal does not cure to hold any relations with a paper published for the purpose of fomenting religious dissension and 1 promoting sectarian hatreds. There is no legitimate Field or Mission in this country for such a paper and there should to no support or recognition Given it save by the vicious or ignorant who agree with it and we do not believe there Are enough of these in Menominee to support such a Sheet let it journal.

Thare Are very few of the business or professional men of this City who have not one or two suits of cast off clothing with which they could easily part. Look them up and give them to the poor.

The Council meeting. A meeting of the City Council was held thursday afternoon for the purpose of taking further action relative to the Purchase of the water works. Or. Underwood a representative of Collin & Stanton Tho purchasers of the Public improvement Bonds was in the City for several Days previous to the meeting. Coffin and Stanton Are evidently of the opinion that if the water Bonds should be signed and delivered at the present time that Hyde & Jackson would place them upon the Market at about 75 cents on the Dollar and thus injure the Solo of the Pullo improvement Bonds. Just How this concerns the City is not very Plain for if coffin & Stanton Are u3 reliable As the citizens of Ironwood have been led to believe they can be compelled to make All the deferred payments on the improvement Bonds As stipulated by them in their contract with the City. Or. Underwood s Mission evidently was to create the impression that if the attachment on the Money which they owe the City should be released that other difficulties would arise to prevent the payment of the Money. He evidently succeeded in his Mission for the Cauncil refused to instruct the mayor to sign the water Bonds. There was no Public discussion of the question at the Council meeting All the deliberations and arguments Tran Amog daring Anem and being Ironwood s poor. During who past ten Days a number of articles have appeared in the Chicago Herald Milwaukee Sentinel and other leading daily papers of Tho Northwest descriptive of the poverty and suffering of the people of Hurley. The statements made therein Are in the main Corric excepting Tho libellous descriptions of Tho past history of the Range towns and the effect of the articles has been to arouse Tho charitably disposed people of the Northwest to an understanding of the urgent needs of Tho people of Hurley and in consequence contributions will be taken up in Many places for the Benefit of the poor. Governor Peck has issued a proclamation calling upon the people of Wisconsin to respond to the appeals of Tho starving people of Hurley and Relief quarters have been opened in Milwaukee it would Havo been a Blessing to the people of Ironwood if this place had also received some attention from the correspondents of the outside papers who have visited the Range. While the City and county Oll Licals have heretofore done their utmost to relieve the poor Thero i no longer any Money in any of the City and county funds and it will to Imp Saille to extend any help in the near future. This will leave thousands of people in this City at the mercy of what help can be obtained from communities which have been More fortunate than Iron Wood during the past year. All last Winter hundreds of men were out of employment in this City and with the Advent of Spring came Tho almost entire suspension of work at most of our mines until instead of the usual 4000 men being employed therein the number dwindled to one or two Hundred. The typhoid fever epidemic which commenced in May attacked Over a thousand of our inhabitants Many of whom were the Heads of families. What Little Money those had saved was thus swept away. The City and county were also put to considerable expense in caring for the afflicted poor. During the summer months Many thousands of dollars were expended by Tho City in furnishing work to the unemployed. The Money with which to pay the City orders issued to pay for this work is tied up in litigation. The merchants have been very hectic and have tried to accommodate the people by accepting the warrants issued by the City and county but the demands of Tho wholesale houses Are now so urgent that Many of the Home merchants find they can no longer accept such paper in return for goods which Thoy must buy for Cash. There has been shown a disposition on the part of some to accuse the working men Here of having been improvident during the prosperous years which the go Gebic Range has witnessed. This May be True of some of the men but it is not True of a great majority of those who Are now in need. Many of the men on this Range have spent their earnings in buying lots and building Homes and Tho hundreds of neat cottages owned by Tho working men of this pity Homos built on Tho monthly instalment plan and still Only partially paid for testify to Tho Good character of thousands of Tho population in this City. But when people Aro cold from insufficient clothing Anil hungry for food Whon Little children cry for Broad and mothers Soud Forth an Appeal to heaven and sob in Dos portion for Tho Aid that is not forthcoming is it a proper time to ask Why tilings should to go this is no time for useless dry and dreary advice. Tho people want bread and they must Havo it soon or perish. To Are now Ehtor ing upon a pm ago even More dreadful than Tho Ono of typhoid through which to Havo passed the plague is that of hunger and unless help is soon forthcoming from a charitable world Many victims will to claimed by Tho up Octroi of death which is now rapping at the doors of Tho Little Homes of Over a thousand of our work Ingmen. Tho Workingman at Tho mooting of their labor Union hold last monday evening appointed a Rolof committee to canvass the situation and make an Appeal for Aid. Thero should also to a meeting of the citizens called at once and a committee appointed thereat to act in conjunction with the working men s committee. There has so far been too much in difference exhibited toward Tho sillier ing of Tho poor. In our Pride to imagine that a City like Ironwood with an assessed valuation in 1802, of Over seven million dollars that go Gebic county with its Rich mines and immense wealth of Timber and an assessed valuation of Oyer ten million dollars there should be no want and that we should care for our poor without Aid from the outside world. Perhaps if bettor judgment had been made in using the ilium cos of Tho City and county we might to Ablo to provide for those who Are now cold and hungry. But the citizen docs not deem this a lit time for criticism of Public Oll Licals. Immediate action must b Lakim to relieve Tho suffering which prevails on All sides. The cold and dreary blizzard of Tho past few Days Trio Many Feci of Snow oiled up in our streets and making them impassable the Colli Borican blasts Aro All grim reminders of our poor Tho poor we have forsaken and neglected. The citizen Hopes the people will arouse themselves to an appreciation of the True condition of a flairs in this City. Poor commissioner Monroe informs this paper Chat lie now despairs of being Ablo to relieve Trio wants of the suffering and lie Calls upon the people to organize for action. Mayor Trebilcock should advise with governor Rich and Mako an Appeal to Trio Good people of Tho state. There should to a meeting of citizens called at once and Tho mayor should be authorized or requested to take this action. A pet a l 11v til k mayor. Mayor Trebilcock huts issued an Appeal to gov. Rich for Aid for the poor. He Calls attention to our typhoid epidemic the closing of the mines the expenditure of $50,000 to furnish the unemployed with world the exhaustion of our resources and Tho inability of the county officials and the Relief corps to care for Tho poor. Attention is called to gov. Peck s proclamation and gov. Rich is urged to Call for immediate Relief. Belief foil Hurley. A dispatch from Milwaukee says that gov. Peck has received word from Texas that 200 miners can find employment in the Coal mines at Waco Tex gov. Peck will return to oversee the loading of a Relief train which will leave for Hurley on saturday. The governor or general Falk the hitter being in charge of Tho Relief Bureau will accompany the train. W. J. Boyle City passenger agent of Tho St. Paul Road will receive Money contributions.
