referring to the Congressional Record quoted it will be found that thin fake oath is filed as an exhibit by Eugene C Bonniwell of Pennsylvania in his charge against Thomas S Butler before the Com mittee on Election No 1 In Congress growing out of an election contest Mr Bonniwell the con testant In his protest printed In the Congressional Record says Messengers in the employ of supporters of Thomas S Butler traveled the dislrlctTfavlhg in their possession and circulating a blasphemous and Infamous libel a copy of which is hereto attached pretend ed to be an oath of the Knights of Columbus of which body the contestant is a member So revolting- are the terms of this document and so nauseating its pledges that the Injury it did not merely to the contestant but also to the Knights of Columbus and to Catholics in general can hardly be measured in termsCopied from Congressional Record Washington DO Vol 49 Pt 4 Feb 15 1913 P 3216 Mr Butler In his defense as i printed in the Congressional Record saysI apprehended with alarm the use of such a document Iin a political campaign or at any other time I did not believe in its truthfulness- and so stated my judgment concern Ing it on November 4 1912 as soon T as complaint was made to me of its general circulation Inasmuch as tIdid not wish to give this document which I judged to be spurious any notoriety whatsoever I refrained i from its public condemnation until 1 the time when n general complaint 1 was made to one and I thought it myII duty to publicly condemn it Copied from Congressional Record 4 Washington D C Vol 49 Pt 4 1 Feb 15 1913 P 3219 The Congressional Committee to which the matter was referred reported in part as follows The committee can not condemn too strongly the publication of the i false and libelous article referred to In the paper of Mr Bonniwell and which was the spurious Knights of Columbus oath a copy of which is appended to the paper Copied from Congressional Record Washington DC Vol 49 Pt 4 Feb 15 1913 P 3221 This shows thrt the fake oath IS A FAKE and it explains how it got Into the Congressional Record The true oath of the Knights of Columbus for the fourth degree members as shown In various court proceedings in different parts of the country is as follows I swear to support the constitu tion of the United States I pledge myself as a Catholic citizen and Knight of Columbus to enlighten myself fully upon my duties as a citizen and to conscientiously perform such duties entirely in the Interest of my country and regardless of all personal consequences I pledge myself to do all In my power to preserve the Integrity and purity of the ballot and to promote reverence and respect for law and order- I I promise to practice my religion openly and consistently but without ostentation and to so conduct myself in public affairs and in the exer else of public virtue as to reflect nothing but credit upon our Holy Church to the end that she may flourish and our country prosper to the greater honor and glory of God At the request of various officialsl of the Masons of the State of Cali forulatheKnightsotColumbuesub mitted td them their complete ritual for a thorough nxaminatpn with ref erence to all of thei charges that are being circulated against the Knights of Columbiai L 4 After a thorough examination these Masons made the following re portWe her bY certify that by author ity of the highest officer of the Knights of Columbus In the State of California who acted under Instruc tions from the supreme officers of the order in the United States we were furnished a complete copy of all the work ceremonies and pledges used by the order and that we care fully read discussed and examined the same We found that while the order is in a sense a secret association it Is not an oathbound organi zation and that its ceremonies are comprised in four degrees which are Intended to teach and inculcate principles that lie at the foundation every groat religion and every free State Our examination of these ceremonials and obligations was made primarily for the purpose of ascertaining whether or not a certain alleged oath of the Knights of Columbus which had been printed and widely circulated was In fact used by the order and whether if it was not used any oath obligation or pledge was used which was or would be offensive to Protestants or Masons or those who are engaged in circulating a document of peculiar viciousness and wickedness We find that neither the alleged oath nor any oath or pledge bearing the motest resemblance thereto In mat ter manner spirit or purpose is used or forms a part of the cere monies of any degree ofthe Knights of Columbus The alleged oath Is scurrilous wicked and libelous and must be the Invention of an impious and venomous mind We find that the Order of Knights of Columbus as shown by its rituals Is dedicated to the Catholic religion charity and patriotism There Is no propaganda proposed or taught against Prot estants or Masons or persons not of Catholic faith Indeed Protestants and Masons are not referred to di rectly or Indirectly in the ceremonials and pledges The cere monlal of the order teaches a high and noble patriotism instills a love df country inculcates a reverence for law and order urges the conscientious and unselfish performance of civic duty and holdsup the constitution of our country as the richest and most precious possession of a Knight of the order We can find nothing in the entire ceremonials of the order that to our minds could be objected to by any person MOTLEY

first governingthatability until his death May 12 1888 WHAT AGITATORS WANT There are some who appear to think the most effective way to meet the antiCatholic agitation which closingdaysstart a counter agitation No greater agitators That is one of their objects and they want Catholics to descend to their level of argument and to meet Theyhaveonly succeed in starting a disturb ance with Catholics on one side and the bigots on the other We shouldtrefuse to be placed at that vantage For be It remembered that the bigots are only a small minority in the average community Outside their ranks is a large body of hon est broadminded tolerant nonCath olics whoso respect and confidence Catholics have if they will only re epect themselves These need not be argued with to convince them that Catholics are good neighbors and good citizens Our blameless lives are the best argument for them Of course It is a hard test of patience to meet suspicion and cal umny without showing resentment That is scarcely to be expected In deed of weak human nature But resentment should not lead to un reasonAgain it should be remembered that mostIf not allthis anti Catholic craze is political in its or- Igin It is fomented by selfseeking politicians who recklessly arouse religious prejudice for their own political ends Little they reck of the harm to the community where they sow the seeds of religious hateaThey see only the momentary gain that may come to them individually Wo agree with the New York SunIthat no more hideous nightmare can be conceived than the American peo alongtinesstate of things all the true issues I are certain to be Ignored The in terests of the country at large are forgotteninthoThere can be no worse crime against Americanism than to sow the germs of such a grievous distemper among the voters The narrow prejudice of one campaign might conceivably be the seeds of harvests for many suc ceeding years of misunderstanding j discord enmity both social and political These are the evils that are bred In the slime of religious prejudice and Intolerance Against them ev ery American citizen who is worthy of the name should lend his aid But as for the Catholic church she has t nothing to fear from the attacks of the bigots She grows strong in numbers and thrives amid persecution It is indifference among her children and not opposition from without that JIs the enemy she has to tear We have always believed and we are confirmed in this belief by our ex perience that the church will gain Immensely by the attempt to kindle anew the smouldering fires of bigotry In this country J INVITED TO INDIANAj j The faculty of the University of Louvain Belgium as well as a num ber of students of that Institution are expected to take refuge at the University of Notre

beings with a definite task they needor society needsthese par ticular services or operations from them but because they conceive that this alone wilt prove them equal The effort of woman to prove herself equal to man is a work of super erogation There Is nothing he has ever done that she has not again and again proved herself able to do equally well iBut rarely is society well served by her understanding his activities Moreover if a man 4s to remain a civilized being he must beheld to his business of producer and protector Woman can not over look her obligations to keep man up to hie

days namely tho Catholics the country as a whole Is still devoid of uniform and complete records of the births of its citizens This neglect is undoubtedly to be ascribed to the lack of a popular conviction that such records are dignified and valuable Everybody agrees that It Is dignified and valuable to make public record of marriages and thoughtisrecord of births Is of kindred im portance and for the same reason to protect individual and property rights Moreover as tai working ex pedient it Is coming to be regarded as indispensable In the eradication of three great evils which affect
