The surest Way to the Republic of Man not to the Quot kingdom Quot of heaven is a free scatter ment of the age of reason and the ironclad age. I8 he a rav. Gent satan has been prompting them to arrest and incarcerate in vile Durance sister Kirkham bosom wife of Rev. F. M. Kirkham of Chicago. Sister Kirkham had read in the Lamb s Book of life How the lord had once ordered his lady Lambkin s to spoil the egyptians. So she undertook to shop lift a dry goods store. But the cruel merchant had a detective watching her and when she started to retire and go Home to her Rev. Hubby whose moral lessons had made a deep impression upon her the impudent Var let arrested her and revealed the cargo of dry goods she had religiously concealed about her. Great was the indignation of the sister and her divine Consort and of the whole congregation of the lord. That merchant will have to flee to Oklahoma. W. Jones of Georgia is the first to introduce hire heavenly father to his flock moved thereto by the late ruinous reduction in the Price. He says april 25ih a i <0 in . Hon j me one Joen of my Ieav Biily lash or s for Dif it Tribu Liou my it is astonishing the ministers Don t create a run on us for the Only authentic pit Ture of our heavenly father in the world a a picture drawn by himself too. We know now that the father of his country was killed by his doctors. Only think of an old Man being heavily bled four times Between Sun Rise in the morning awl 3 o clock in the evening and bleeding Wckre bleeding in those Days a Man was Quot blooded Quot in proportion to his length and weight. A Long Man like the f. Of his c., lost from a pint to half a gallon at each surgical inning. The median Cephalic vein was Slit with a thumb lancet in the shape of a cheese knife but not quite so big. In urgent cases a vein in each Arm was Slit at the same time. If the patient was gasping and about to go off any How the temporal artery or one of the jugular was Silt up with a shoe knife. If there had been no doctors in the country the probability is that g. W. Would have lasted some ten or fifteen years longer he fell a victim to a false medical theory. Our supreme court is still going on with its rat killing. It has now killed about All the Able acts of the late lamented legislature. That August and awful assemblage of Hoosier Wisdom Quot the late lamented Quot so far As head from did t take a step Forward nor backward without setting its heavy brogans Down upon the Constitution of the state of Indiana and of the United states too for that matter. When the supreme court gets through it is believed we will have nothing but the Bare Constitution itself left and even that in a battered Aud damaged condition. Report has it that if the late lamented could have got in one More Day s work it would have declared the Constitution itself unconstitutional in order to forestall the action of the supremo court for it was dreading that clog upon its Able enactments. But it is comforting to know we have a tribunal of last resort a Brave enough to Rise above partisan scrambles for place and Power and declare that the people s right to self government cannot to abridged by legislative bodies. From his holy messengers we learn that our heavenly father is Quot without body parts or yet in his sacred biography he himself Speaks of his fierce Wrath being kindled of his heavy hand being Laid on and of his parts his hinder parts being seen by Moses. Anger is passion. It is now and always was passion Aud it requires parts physical Parte for its manifestation. And then the lord himself tells us that be made Man in his own image. We know that Man has parts and passions and a body. Whom Are we to believe the lord himself or his holy messengers this is an important question for we must believe or be damned. We Are inclined to the opinion that the holy saints and synods of the last two or three centuries were entirely at sea so to speak in regard to god. In describing him they discredit him and make of him an unthinkable nondescript. Evidently it is Best to ignore the ministers and priests entirely and to accept the lord s own testimony As recorded in his Book. If we can t believe this let our heavenly father ask himself Why he made us so stiff necked Antl stubborn. A proclamation puts to shame the Puritan hypocrites. The governor of California has issued a proclamation in accordance with the theory Aud Genius of the Constitution of the United states. There is not a word of the disgusting whining puritanical cant about Quot repairing to your usual places of worship Quot itc., that always the average american sick at the stomach Aud tills him with loathing. Here is the godless manifesto , March 30, 1880. Lung it a i0l� Jirs prot a Hilll right i i whereas on april a a 17s>, the first president of the United states ii Orfie Avash Iii ton was in tie City of \ jew York this Date the formal beginning of the present govern int of this country Marks a period in tie history of tie government of the people by and for and such it is appropriate that the Centenary anniversary of this Date be observed by the people of this state. Now therefore i h. W. Waterman governor of the state of California by virtue of the authority conferred upon to by the Constitution and Laws of this state do hereby declare j tuesday april 30, shh the Centennial of the foundation of the Constin Lional government of the United slates and the inauguration of president Wash Itig ton a Legal Holiday and that each citizen within the of this state retrain from pursuing his usual vocation and so observe the Day that he May the better appreciate the blessings and glory of american citizenship. Criven under my hand Aud Seal on the Day above writ ten. 11. W. , governor. Is it a conspiracy ? there is a movement on foot albeit a faint and feeble one to get a Brace of infidel editors out of the country that Hao somewhat the appearance of a conspiracy. There is no direct charge made against either of them and Why the infidels of the u. S. Of a. Should want them Dan marked is hard to conjecture. G. Ivas Hington Macdonald of the Frisco free thought is one of the selected martyrs and exiles and As he has a great Deal stronger backing than Bis Yoke fellow culprit and victim the presumption is that his of lenses whatever they be Are correspondingly More heinous than those of his less conspicuous labor Ator. G. Washington m. Oace wrote a Book entitled new England and the people up he admits that an edition of near one Hundred copies of that work has been sold since its first appearance in 1879. A copy of this Book lies near where this is written and the writer views it regretfully for the reason that there Are so Many More on a shelf near by. Having read it when it first appeared and being enthused by its drollery and quaint style the writer Hereof was carried off his feet this is Hoss talk Aud ordered a Job lot seeing no reason Why the demure and staid passengers on his Craft might not relish and be allowed a Little dry humor after their return from Church on lord s Day. But the unappreciative crowd had been so Long fed upon a hark from the tombs a doleful sound literature that they seemed to dread anything Lively. Hence this Stock of to cent new England. Hence this stuck merchant. Hence these tears. But to this infamous scheme to exile and probably drown a Brace of journalists who Are guilty of no offence in the world except a failure to say their prayers needs an explanation. In the subjoined paragraph taken from free thought of april 20th, g. Washington m. Fails entirely to state that he himself has been Quot Innominate Quot for an Ocean voyage and for fish bait at the Bottom of the Briney. Says he Quot a correspondent of the ironclad age has placed the editor l r. Monroe in nomination for a journey around the world and especially to the holy land and i to second the motion. I would further suggest that the United states consulate to Palestine is so far As 1 know As yet unfilled. Or. Monroe is a citizen of Indianapolis presumably personally acquainted Wii ii i resident Harrison and he is also a deep student of Bible history which fact should recommend him to the Lavor of the administration. I do not believe there is any Good reason Why i it a. Monroe should not represent this country in the holy land. His expenses it is Unido stood would be paid by the government and a Small salary is attached to the office. The Entrance of the editor of the ironclad age into Jerusalem mounted after the fashion of his distinguished predecessor and bearing his portfolio in one hand and a Iriart bottle of the blood feeder in the other would be i conceive rather More triumphal than any other Entrance known to history. It would also be calculated to evoke the enthusiasm of the natives and to win their respect for american How g. Washington m. Found out that the blood feeder has to be taken in a prohibited solvent a fact that has been carefully concealed from prohibition communities is not known. The writer is somewhat acquainted with the president used to work hard to have him elected governor once in awhile and is now a member of the g. A. R. Post to which he belongs but for All this the president will never Send him As commissioner to the old nor new Jerusalem for the reason that he is afraid of water and won t go. A a b. F. Underwood has been swinging round the Circle. Says the Pittsburg commercial Gazette of april 22d a the secular Union met yesterday at Imperial Hall. Two sessions were held. Prof. I. F. Underwood of Chicago one of the leading freethinkers of the country Drew Good sized audiences to both meetings. His subject in the afternoon was How i Volution a reconciles experience philosophy and intuitional ism in the evening the professor spoke on what liberalism offers in the place of Christian theology to claimed that civilization had modified christianity As taught from the pulpit Aud believed by the Jio Ople and that the new testament morality in regard to the subordinate position of woman in regard to poverty and submission to evil had been discarded. Theology lie characterized As the lowest form of ignorance Solidi and made impervious to truth reason or sensible impervious to truth reason or sensible argument is Good so is ignorance solidified. Both Are Quot better As Good Quot when applied to theology. Mighty Little attention was paid to the order for Praise Aud prayer Aud thanks to Jehovah april 30th. G. Washington rather than Ghovah was the prevailing deity april 30th. The people seemed More inc ined to hilarity than to holiness. The sanctimonious proclamations of presidents and priests in these latter Days of irreverence Aud degeneracy fall upon ears utterly deaf to such hypocritical cant. The whole Jehovah business is utterly despised and spit upon by All honest intelligent Well informed americans
