Denied the Rights of Christian Burial. A SCANDALOUS INCIDENT FROM THE PAST. THE R.C. CHURCH WOULD NOT AL LOW A PRIEST AT THE FUNERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 25 October 1902

Denied the Rights of Christian Burial. A SCANDALOUS INCIDENT FROM THE PAST. TTTF. B.C. CHURCH WOULD NOT AL LOW A PRIEST AT THE. FUNERAL. We take the following account of thefuneral of the late Mr. Michael Fitzpatrick, MX. A, from an old'file of the "Sydney Morning Herald." It only shows, if such proof be •wanting, how bitter the 3£.C. Church is against any of her flock.that should dare hold opinions contrary to the teachings of the Holy Mother Church. A bitterness which, in this case, was shamefully exemplified when the dead man was denied the rites of Christian burial. No priest was present to read the burial service at the grave, nor at the funeral. The report speaks for itself, and makes sad reading. "Fukerxl of the late Mn. Michael Fitz\x=req-\ pATmcK, MX.A. "The mortal remains of the late Mr. Michael Fitzpatrick, M.L.A., were consigned to their last resting place, in the Roman Catholic Cemetery, Petersham, yesterday afternoon. The funeral procession left the late residence of t...

A Government within a Government. (IN TWO CHAPTERS.) No. I. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 25 October 1902

A Government within Government. By J. G. Cii vpjiAN. Two Chapters.) No. I. The - average Protestant knows little of Popery, and so makes the mistake of judging the Church of Home by Protestant standards. It is only'when that political octopus overreaches herself, and a shock is occasioned, that the drowsy Protestant wakes, as from a dream/ exclaiming, " Who'd have thought it ?" The over-confident and conceited Protestant who is for anything, everything, and nothing, he becomes inebriated with that sovereign drug, toleration (often used as a cloak for cowardice, and want of principle), but it suits his pride, and flutters his vanity, so he drinks deeper and deeper and becomes bereft of reason. The golden opportunity occurs. " Whilst men slept the enemy sowed tares." The Church of Rome by its so-called "Divine Magistracythe luerarchy, armed with the Canon law, takes possession. By persistent intrigue she stuffs the civil service with her adherents, pea-cocks the country with inass\x=r...

How the Roman Catholic Papers Misinterpret Facts. SOME INTERESTING COMPARISONS. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 25 October 1902

How the Roman Catholic Papers Misinterpret Facts. SOME INTERESTING COMPARISONS. ••"Look on this picture, and on that"—Hamlet. The description of the'great meeting of the A.P.D.A. "in thu Town Hall ou October 13th, /is chronicled in the 'columns of the daily presa and tlio Roman Catholic journals of thin city, makes very interesting reading. It only shows, if such proof be' wanting at this late stuire of the day, that the Roman Catholic journalists rival their brethren on the Yankee yellow press in the prevarication of the golden truth and solid facts. For instance, this is how the 44 Sydney Morning Herald" described the reception accorded to Rev. Dr. Dill Mucky. " Tiie Rev. Dr. Dill Macky, who was received with enthusiasm, moved." And thus the •"Daily Telegraph": — '•Invited io move the iirst revolution, Dr. Dill Macky was greeted with a perfect storm of apphtus» when he stepj>cd to the front."

Auburn Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 25 October 1902

• Auburn r Notes. By "G.S." The R.C. party ore past masters in the art of making " mountains out of mole hills." They place before the public on every possible —and impossible—occasion, what appears to their "holy" natures an attack upon their institutions. To make the Protestant side plain in regard to the Auburn business, let it be distinctly understood that the Protestants were at the meeting to prevent a deputation being appointed to wait on the Government for a subsidy to the St. Joseph's Hospital. The organisers of the public meeting in question made no secret of the fact that they were going to move in this direction. The Protestants voted against the motions submitted on principle—just as a Roman Catholic would vote against a motion, say for the banishment of the Jesuits. Could a Protestant conscientiously vote for—or not vote at all—on a motion in the wording of which they were pledged to support a bazaar for the purpose 1 of raising funds for this B.C. concern. We think no...

Political Points. INNOCENT MR. WISE. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 25 October 1902

Political Points. INNOCENT MB. WISE. According to the "Catholic Press," Mr. Wise said at "Westmead the other day—at the shivoo there—that it had never crossed his mind, until he1-arrived on the ground, to ask what religious body was running the show. He might, with just as much assurance, tell us that he never heard of Moss Friedman. By the way, when our friend was fighting under .the banner of "Saint" Henry Parkes, the Papist organs were wont to call him "Bing\x=req-\ noee " Wise, but since he has fallen from grace and become one of the Cardinal's very " liberal Protestants," the pleasant little title is kept in the background. His fate should be a warning to all other "^liberal .Protestants." Since the public got his measure, he has never been able to gain the confidence of any constituency, notwithstanding the Papist block vote. Our present E. C. Government, however, by finding him a political roost, have shown themselves not nngrateful for favors received.

The Sydney Police Force Utterly Demoralised. FURTHER CAUSES. No. VI. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 25 October 1902

The Sydney Police Force Utterly Demoralised. FURTHER CAUSES. No. VI. In our preceding articles, we have) emphasised: bo strongly the ignorance of many of the officers of the police, and their utter unfitness for the positions to which they have lieen promoted, that further reference to this phase of our subject itay seem like unnecessary reiteration. We assure our readers, however, that it is pot so. On the contrary, the situation is so grave, and the incompetence of. many of the officer* so glaring and so demoralising in its effect upon the whole police force, iliat the public interests suffer to an extent (juite impossible to estimate. j The last sentence in our preceding article indicates I one of the ways in which the incompetence of officers adds to the cost of the department; but the greatest loss to the public results. not from what is done, but from what is left undone. And this condition of things obtains through the gross'violation of rules and regulations. For example, th...

MR. CRICK AND JURIES. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 25 October 1902

MR CRICK AND JURIES. The Minister for Lands, in the " Freidman " debate, expressed grave doubts about the efficacy of trial by juiy. He must have been thinking of Irish juries. Probably the one that tried Kelly for the murder of Talbot in Dublin who, after having heard the sworn testimony of seven eye-witnesses to the murder by Kelly, brought in a verdict of "Not guilty.V About the same time, another Irish jury empannelled to try a hedge assassin for shooting '1 only an agent" brought in tfye verdict: " It served the agent right, for getting in front of the gun."

Stories from the Past. XXI. HOLLAND'S STRUGGLE FOE RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. (Continued.) (AU Rights Reserved.) ANOTHER MASSACRE. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 25 October 1902

Stories from the Past. XXI. HOLLAND'S STRUGGLE FOE RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. (Continued. ^ By O.E.S.T. {AU Rights Unserved.) Another Massacre. The negotiations between the seventeen pro* vinces did not hinder, the ordinary course of the war, which still continued with unabated fury. The citizens of Maestrichl determined to wrest their city frtikn the rebellious Spanish troops, who held it at their mercy, treating all within its walls to the utmost indignities. The German mercenaries' were first won over, probably with promises of pay, and, thus reinforced, a determined onslaught was made upon the foreign foe. This succeeded after a heavy conflict, and the Spaniards driven from the city. "When beyond the walls, however, there was - a rally, and a reinforcement of the flying soldiers. It was determined to re-attack the city, as the insult of Spanish troops being defeated by plain burghers was insufferable. To return, however, they had to march across a bridge, which the citizens had now defe...

The Protestant Watchtower. Pledged Against the Word Sectarianism [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 25 October 1902

; The ProtestantWat<?htower. Pledged Against the Word Sectarianism Archbishop Kelly opened a bazaar at Parra\x=req-\ matta; and oI course he made a speech, and of course he was reported by the papers. His Grace coaxed the heretics to help the faithful, a&d tickled the former by telling them he had, sinoe he came to Australia, pledged himself not to even nee the word " Sectarianism." 60 he flnng it to the floor, dramatically, as it were, and jumped "upon it. But sure His Grace* might as well pledge himself not to be associated with- his own shadow. His Church is nothing but sectarianism from bottom to. top, arid Dr. Kelly is one of its high priests. As a good " Catholic " bishop, Dr. Kelly looks upon <£ll other churches, all other clergy, and all Jther sacraments but his own, as mere frauds which a holy Inquisition should be destroying as of old. Aye, Dr. Kelly may object to the twrf, sectarianism, but not tb the thing, itself: for it is his faith; part ...
