proclaimed that he would not appoint me nor any one representing me on the Auditing or any other Com reasons given for this action were that as I had come there for scalps I should not have a chance to lift one This was equivalent to defending Macdonald and Relchwald right or wrong and by eo acting he purposely blocked all unprejudiced investi gation He made a poodle of himself and now stands befroe the country as an attechment to a man of the most ordinary brain and Individuality I was not thero to present any charges unless those on trial demand ed an open Investigation but this they feared and fortified themselves against by plotting o keep me and my friends off the Auditing Commit tee I told Dr Croffutt at one of the recesses that I wanted on that Com mittee and that I would correspond with every donor and get his cancel led check or statement and check It off and no other Investigation would satisfy me Oh well he replied that would require an Immense amount of work Well I said Ill take Just one or two years and If I find them all right Ill 0 K the rest They knew very well what Id do if put on that Committee and their very fear and caution Is evidence enough to me that the book are rot tenIf they are all right why should Dr Croffutt say that neither I not any of my friends should be put on that committee I wouldnt eat the books In tho face of nil this the Lie Seeker says that we refused to make even tho attempt to make good our wo wero not even Invited to mako good tho charges No investi gation was demanded by the accused I had made my charges In public

would It bo to demand an Investigation mlno or theirs If these men honestly wanted an In vestigation they would have come out on tho very first day and have said here are tho open bookslet any one wino will como forward and Inspect them If they wore right no commltto they might appoint would make them moro rightMacdonald further says that we lied not courage to appear before the Auditing

nal carelessness upon the part of the Treasurer ensued and Illegal usurpa tion of office upon the part of the Recorder and his accounts question ed and investigation demanded What is done on such occasions Is the Recorder still allowed to hold the books and select those who shall audit them and give them thirty or forty minutes to Investigate them and then take them back into his own County Commissioners take them clear out of the Recorders and Treasurers possessions and put them in the hands of an expert accountant and give him weeks months If need be to go over them Every one can see what a farce this Auditing Committee was and tho actions of the committee la thuS declaring a set of books in which the Treasurers and ecretarya accounts were all fumbled together for years to be perfectly correct after a halfhour glance at them should make them blush with shame It will have the effect of increasing moro suspicion than ever Relchwald and Macdonald knew very well that I hall my pocket full of evidence and did not intend that I should have the opportunity to spring It They knew better than to take the risk of exhibiting an honest desire to satisfy their accusers by giving them a chance to Inspect tho books and the time necessary to go through them If they had Just led a Jackass up to those books and opened them before his inquiring gaze and after thirty minutes ho bad

He was engaged to come to Cincinnati for 100 and I be here he was paid every cent of It and that Relchwald owing to tho adverse criticism since about It has so Jug gled and shifted the figures that he was ableto make It appear that Wake man only got 50 I made the state ment many times during tho sum mer that Wakeman was contracted with for and others commented on It and Reichwald never once dis puted It and it la too late for him to dispute It now The shows a balance In Treasury of 33765 out of which the expenses of the Buffalo Congress must be paida balance of 126 for hall rent the Presidents ana Secretarys expenses 25 to 50 each and no doubt Croffutt and Wakoman wore employed to come at 25 to 50 each and when It Is all settled there wont he a dadblasted cent left If Macdonald hat acted ns President himself he could have saved the ganization Croffutts pay It Is rub bing It In protty strong if Mncdonald credits 50 up for the Presidents ex penses and then hires some one else to come and act In his place It is significant that the two only prominent men present In Macdonulds behalf were without doubt paid to come If Mr Croffutt had not been paid to attend and had been In a wholly Independent position It la questionable whether or not ho would have permitted himself to bo wagged as he wasNearly 700 was spent for postage 300 or 400 of this was spent In send ing bcgjlng

way but no one knowa anything about how the money was spent or what hole It was run Into It In significant that more money was taken In this year and more members than over before Last year 1900 but 118 names wero rolled This yearn between 700 and 800 hundred were enrolled that is It they did not pad tho list At tho Congress I requested that the receipts In money and additions of membership be given for each month so I could see much and how many came In under my admin Istratlon This was a bomb of course and I was refused thq knowledge Nearly all of that money and near ly all of those

for the Blue Grass Blade Tire alleged dying declaration of President McKInley Is certainly not his words because In the first place- tho Christians announced them and they mean to profit by them secondl because the sentence Is archltectuall perfect properly punctuated and capitalized and such a sentence could no more come from a dying and decaying man than a perfect rose court come from a dying rose bust I firmly believe that the Christie or perhaps only the Catholic brand of thorn feeling confident of his ar proachlng death or knowing long In advance of the intended assassination and having one or several of their adherents in charge of the patient and knowing and desiring the great Influence such an utterance coming from a man so good and so near to the hearts of the people constructs that sentence and If President Kinley ever uttered those words he did so at the request of an attendant and then only repeated them after him like a child learning to talk Of course some of the Doctors will say that he uttered them because It cannot be proven by competent testimony that he did not and cause It would be worth as much as their practice to refuse to confirm the report that he did Besides It would cause them to lose caste and would force them to retirement Mrs McKInley did not hear her husband say them but like many good women will hope that he did and will finally be convinced that he didPresident McKInley was not a be lever In the Bible nor in the tenets of ChristianityHad either he would on the 22rid day of October 1897 the day he made his will and while his good old mother was In life and whose name Is so tenderly and lovingly men tloned In that testament and to whom he owed more than to any other person In the world and while still In possession of the thought and knowledge that had been so graciouslY favored as to enjoy a privilege which had only been enjoyed by one mar Garfield theretoforethat of kiss Ing his dear mother upon receiving the oath of office of the President of the United States have attributed his success and this special privilege to divine providence and as a be Never In miracles would have ac knowledged His existence and paid him homage In his last will and testament We are familiar with the stereotyp cd form of the Introduction to the wills of Christians which is as follows In the presence of Almighty God and being In the full possession allr my faculties I now make and de t clare this to lie my last will and tes J W rltn u 1 r Haw President McKInley been a i Christian he would have made use- of the above language or that 01 similar Import In his will Instead of the sensible introduction that he used and which is as follows I pub- lIsh the following as my last will and testament hereby revoking all former wills- Had he been a believer in the super natural he would have followed the Christian precedent by making use of the following language I hereby devise and bequeath to my beloved wife all of my personal and real property provided she does not marry thus exemplifying the belie that this Is the place to be miserable a place of sickly countenance that tho dead are alive The Catholic church that nightmare that destroyer of virtue home hope promise and ambition the seducer the infernal inquisitor the Inventor of means of hellish torture the retarder of progress the consort of ghosts and hobgoblins the advocate of the delusion that the way to heaven is by the hearse road the pretender regret over the assassination of 1of Garfield and Lincoln the originator of the brutal lie that the killing of McKInley was an anarchistic plot the user of McKinley during first term of office the possessor or the knowledge that he would as sort his Independence and true American manhood during his second term and that It could not longer use him the pension of Ignorance the cong lomerated phantasmagoria the provider of body guards for president who stood by and saw him shot the Catholic church In the ignorant precincts of which the murderer of the President was educated cast the dead President aside mentally In the same manner as one of its foolish and ignorant members would a sucked Catholic church that educated and furnished the men to assassinate Lincoln and Garfield also educated and furnished the man to assassinate McKInley and will absolve his sins and send him on his way to heaven- rejoicing at the time of his execu tionThe Catholic church whose adher ents recognize no power or government higher than the church whose head Is the dried up Leoconsplred to lay the taking off of our beloved President to the Anarchists so that It might thereby delude and fool our lawmakers to restrict emigration and free speech and free press hoping that thereby the inroads upon Its sacred teachings would be block aded The Catholic church an advocate of restructed emigration Yes so long as it restricts those opposed to religious rule so long as the lawless tribe the Catholicswho are now being forced to leave France may be ad mUted It would have the public 4 forgot thatill assassins of our ij public officers were citizens as pure and patriotic as a Catholic can be of the United States The Catholic church like a slimy snake is endeavoring by every avail r able method to obtain control of the United States government and the assassination of President McKlnle J was one more step toward the desired end The Idea of a sensi j i J c1 t i t t il ble public listening to tho howling of the Catholic church tho enemy of all governments unless under the supoi vision of the Pope Is to mo mosl Anarchistthat Is the evoh tlonary anarchist had no more to do with the assassination of President McKinley than the dead Grant had The evolutionary anarchists believe- as I understand them that man Is the highest type of animal life and that he can be so educated and tralr ed that he can live in peace and harmony with his fellowman without be- Ing compelled to pay any man a higher salary to rule over others They believe in ideal life which at our present slow progress could not be reached In ten thousand years Yet I bcllvc them to be honest anll sincere and that their method is nol violence but education But there Is another kind of anarch- Ists who believe In force and violence and this to kind belong the assassins of Lincoln Garfield and McKInley They are believers in God Christ the Holy Virgin Mary and tho Catholic churchI not an anarchist of either at the above described varieties but Ing an Agnostic have learned tho spirit of fairness and occupying this position can assert that in all my re searches I have been unable to find the record of one death caused b the teachings of evolutionary anarchy but have found the record of countless thousands caused by the teachings aM instructions of all religions denominations It has been said Anarchists do not vote Of this am not advised but If it be true then they do no harm by the ballot I do know that the memo bens of all religious denominations do vote Is usually cast with the party or person which or who will make tin greatest sacrifices In their behalf Their votes are seldom cast in the interest of and for the preservation of a Republican form of government bnt In the interest of an ecclesiastical form of government and to that end all such denominations are working In the face of the facts It behove every Liberal to exert all honorable fluence in an effort to preserve our government In the form designed b our fathers We should do all In our power to combat the spread of Ignor ance and superstition all we can tc combat the influence on susceptible minds of the alleged dying utterances of President McKInley and on that we may In the Interest and advancement of enllghtmemt

they have played In the past One of these belongs hero In south eastern Kansas Another Is published In Lexington Ky by C C Moore called the Blue Grass Blade A few years ago Mr Moore was arrested tried and thrown In Jail and was sent to the penitentiary He made a mighty fight over the freedom of the press here In free America He quoted verbatim constitutional laws statutory laws and moral laws to prove that he had a right to publish anything that he saw fit to pay the ty po for setting up lie posed before the Liberal public as a martyr lie sked for financial aid and moral aid and mental aid to help him defeat his enemies His appeal was not in Ij vain his many friends rallied to his support manfully feeling that he was being persecuted Instead of heing pro I secuted They stood by him In his fight for free speech Freethought and gel press Now he turns anarchist along with the rest No no not that not that ho turns traitor to his friends and without even stopping to consider how Judas betrayed his master how Brutus killed Ceasar no plunges his knife to the hilt in tho bosom of the very ones who helped him in his fight for free press and makes a loudmouth ed demand to destroy their press Im prison the editors nay he wants to x pang item all and wants Kentucky to be the state selected to furnish tho hemp All this without ever consider ing or Inquiring Into the facts of whether his friends were ever in sym pathy with the murderer who killed our lato president C C Moore was once a preacher We read about tho lion and lamb lying down together We read bout the hog returning al10 and the dog retur Ing to ltsvomlt hilt we never ex ectrirt see the day when C C Moore would do likewise Read the following ex tract and then Judge If C C Moore and the preachers are not pulling gether in true brotherly fashion Then she quotes my editorial headed Damn all tho Anarchists and again deposes thusly Tho church has long sought for an excuse and now she gloats over the death of tho president with a horrible 1frenzy as Is proven by Dollvers part of which is quoted above lIe is really happy the president has been made a martyr of for now he can begin a crusade upon Atheism Liberalism and Infidelity under the guise of Christianity and anarchy If C C Mooro aids and abets him and other fanatics soon his paper will be I suspended for flaunting the faith of Jesus and him crucified If Slater Somple thinks she can knock me out with any such Jove licks aa that she thinks a largo mis take If by any kind of dispensation of divine providence her husband and my wife should die about same time I am going to her house with matrimonial intentions Just as soon as I can beat tho railroads out of a ticket to get there If she dont get another fellow before I can got there am

The dead are and John F Chadwell and 1Tip Henry Morgan Mortally wounded John Morgan I and Asa ChadwolL Wounded Jones leg broken Ncabloy flesh wound Sheriff Brook slight The shooting occurred Just

began firing at Chad YoU Doth factions Immediately gath f ered a few steps from the church and opened fire After an exchange of over one hundred shots both sides withdrew About twentyfive or thirty men were engaged In the fight The above was at this same time that our Infidel Congress was In ses sion at Buffalo If a fight had occur red thero between the WilsonMoore and MacdonaldRelchwald factions in which only one man had been killed It would have been used by pulpits and religious papers all over Ameri ca as an evidence of the immorality of Infidels but as the parties engaged were Christians and at church on Sun day It is all so common ana so natur al that Itcreates no more interest than if tlatmany low Negroes had killed each other in a low dive on Dewees streets of Lexington Two men suspect ed of malfeasance in office among the Infidels creates ten times as much stir among Infidels as the killing of four men and the wounding of others in a church on Sunday does among

horns To show that In my Interpretation of what the old Brother has said there Is no kick coming to me I quote from his editorial as followsIWe will say lation to of Grass Blade He lisa proved to all his readers that ho Is a valiant fighter In this Free Thought family quarrel that he has conducted in behalf ot President Wilson and against the Truth Seeker and Relchwald and now If he will turn his heavy guns again as heretofore against the com mon enemy he will do valiant service in behalf of our cause No Free Thought Journal over before started In this country has so soon obtained so large a

Relchwalds admitted fact that he obnr Watson Heston f92 MOfltllwttlirMJJt t fha was sent to Reichwakl for Hoston and as an old penitentiary convict and Jail bird I say and Bro Green believes me that those two mon are not the moral equals of halt tho men In the penitentiaries if those charges made by Wilson and myself are true while both Wilson and I are as big liars as Zackory and Rucker it those charges arc not truo and both of fur ought today to bo in Jail If they are not true and Bro Green or any other man of good sense can seo tho good sense and truth of what I am saying So that while the

of tho Chronicle- In his bapt tjmal sermon Rev Dr Radcllffe wlthSut too much relavency or coherence flats of Religion In the Public Schioo He holds that morality transient and citizenship worthless lis not founded on religion and there that religion ought to be taught all schools tho confession being that the religious Instruction conveyed by Sunday School teachers and parents is too Insignificant to enforcedlahdculum This la a severe arraignment of those thrtft sources of theological knowledge Dr Radclrae says The Atheist the Agnostic the Mohammedan have no right to dogmatlso He evidently holds that dogmatism should bo kept In the hands of the experts of oracu lar Intolerance who by long practice have reduce dogmatism to a science And he conjanues They should not undertake t dictate to us what or how we administer Indeed And who shIllus Would he not call it arrogance If that speech were from the mouth of a Uni tarian Quaker Hebrew Agnostic or or goes on This is not an Atheistic or Agnostic nation It is Gods cotBtiy Ah That Is Just what declaredIin shrivel If lie remembers what Wash IngtonH answer was And Washing ton Adam Franklin Jefferson and Hamilton re all Agnostics or Freethinkers generally called Dolsts In those day Dr Had iffe declares that this it GodSvCQiftitry because We officially recfog lD the find and not the seventh rfiy of the week This ta very considering tilt fact that Dr Radcl rte teaches that God manded that seventh day only hhould bo offlolojly recognized II Ills day py tho way does the fact that all days ot our week and most of

y announced its decision that thfft U a Christian country Now I earnestly submit that oven Dr und to know bettor than to make such an assertion as this The average reader of the Chronicle does not need to be told that the Supreme Courthntnot made formally or In decision whatever on tint subject In fact no such question bas over been before Court What Dr Radcllffe is thinking about per haps is a casual remark which Justice Brewer made that n good many ple liQlclsthnt this Is a Christian coun quits a different propqsl tloRr tli haaeitffeWltrtttjhnrw boon Informed concerning simple yet important a matter If he was ex petting to apeak of It before his In telligent congregation One of the things taught in our High School hymnal Is that the fearful and unboIevlng shall have their part In the which burneth with fire and brimstone Doubtless Dr Rad cllffe regards this as a beautiful moral axiom Another bit of the Washington High School hymns is Holy Holy Holy merciful and mighty God in three persons Blessed Trln ity Wo are expected to regard this as another of those grand universal truths which all men hold precious He adds The Atheist the Agnostic the Antl Christian has nothing to say to us on this subject But he Is mis taken again here and he will find that at least eight other Sunday Congrega tions In this city have something to say too And to answer them satis factorily
