Australian Protestant fence Association. WELLINGTON BRANCH. A meeting of Protestants "was held in tlie Protestant Hall on Friday night to form a "branch of the A.P.D.A. in Wellington.

George Milne (Presbyterian), Ee'v. J. Ward Harrison (Methodist), Rev. J. Parker (Baptist), and Mr. Wellington (Salvation Army).'

However, they had there a very able exponent of the aims and objects of the Association, and seeing this they would require him td say little on the matter...

A ROMAN CATHOLIC "MISSION." (To the Editor of the WATCHMAN.) [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 31 October 1902

A ROMAN CATHOLIC "MISSION." . (To the Editor of the Watchman*. 1 Sir,—lleing in the country recently I heard the account of the so-culled mission of u certain Father O'B. in that district. He told his hearers that they ought not to recognise their Protestant neighbours, or jJiukc hands with them, or *pcnk to'tlieni; and when he heard .-ome children crying outsido the building, he ordered thut they should bring in "those Protestant pups, and he would chastise them." As it happened the poor little mites were of his own flock, and in the anus of their R.C. mothers. Such a " missioner" uh this naturally feels hurt when Protectants raise tho sectarian question. What docs ho call this vulgar and uncharitable remark? The two sections of the people in that district would livo in neighbourly good feeling but for thin periodical outburst by a priest. As it if, some of their own more intelligent people are disgusted, and a number have left them. I am, etc., "Westebn.

OUR POLICE. (To the Editor of the WATCHMAN.) [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 31 October 1902

OUR POLICE. (To the Editor of the Watchman.) Sir,—Wlicn any Member of Parliament makes any enquiry regarding the work of the police, ho generally gets an evasive reply. When asked for a report why some persons were prosecuted and fined for having their shops open on Sunday, the Inspector-General said that it was through some shopkeepers takiug greater care not to bo detected than others. Now, if a shopkeeper opens his shop in Newtown or any small suburb ho is immediately tuken before the court aud iined, but a large number of shopkeepers in Georgo and Pitt streets keep their shops open every Sunday without ever taking any precaution not to be detected. Indeed, the only time theso shops are closed is when some Member of Parliament makes a complaint. Some hotels aro st rictly looked after, while others, in the city, admit hundreds of persons on Sunday. In Sus^ex-Btreet men and women arc-to be seen entering hotels on Sunday.

I AM NOT A CATHOLIC. (To the Editor of the WATCHMAN.) [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 31 October 1902

I AM NOT A CATHOLIC.. (To tho Editor of the Watchman.) Sir,—The abovo heading is the specious subterfuge of many of our public men when asked to explain certain actions of a public character, so that it is diflicult to understand them. Sir E. Barton's visit to the Pope was not what the Commonwealth of Australia sent him home for, and when askod to explain his visit to Qis Holiness, ho brings forth the equivocal reply, 411 am not a Catholic, but hopo I am a Christian.1' Was there ever such trifling with language 'i It is only ou a level with the disloyal fulmiiiations of tho 41 Catholic Press," which appears weekly for the edification of mental reservists. It appears from that the noblest son of Australia coalmen that a Catholic (/f.C.'r) it not a Christian. Slav ho longlive in that belief. Now, if Sir E. Barton had said he was not a Jtoman Catholic, his meaning would have been plain, and hiscoiistitucntscould have understood him; but tho answer given is Jesuitical, probably, intende...

Proselytism of Protestant Girls. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 31 October 1902

Proselytism of Protestant Girls. i It is asserted that a Roman Catholic Emigration Society, having its headquarters in England, carries on a work of systematic proselytism of Protestant girls, who are conveyed to Canada. Mr. Walter Walsh says he has just received from an influential Canadian gentleman a letter, enclosing a form of agreement used by the society, under which it claims the entire legal control of young women brought out by it, even if they are Protestants. The agreement is thus worded: I, do hereby agree to repay the amount of £7 in such instalments from my wages as shall be fixed by the agent of the above society, and to receive my wages through the agent. I also know that the society is my legal guardian in Canada. Signature I.. (Stamp.) . An instance is adduced of pressure amounting to terrorism put on a young woman member of the Church of England who was placed in a Roman Catholic Home, toinduceherto.be baptised into the Roman Catholic Church.— " The Christian Worl...

A DUBLIN FROTESTANT SHOCKED AT AUSTRALIA'S LETHARGY TO THE PAPAL FOE. (To the Editor of the WATCHMAN.) [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 31 October 1902

A DUBLIN FROTESTANT SHOCKED AT AUSTRALIA'S LETHARGY TO THE PAPAL FOE. (To the Editor of tlie Watchman.) Sir,—Tour article in the 44 Watchman " of "JOthuit., 'Protestant Organization," should, I respectfully Mig\x=req-\ . gc&t, be printed in pamphlet form and distributed throughout even.* parish. This could bo done by the. clergy of the several churches, as it behoves tbcxn to be alive to the present state of affairs, and not allow Protestantism to take second place in tliis country. The Protestant population of Xew South Wales does not appear to be fully alive to the gravity of the situation. In the Old Country (Dublin), from whence I arrived a little over a week ago, the fame serious evil prevails, and it is mostly on account of the encroachment of the Roman Catholic community throughout the country that 1 was persuaded to come out here. The general feeling among the Protestants of Ireland e that *4 there is no use in their endeavouring to obtain uny respectable position or...

The Protestant Watchtower. Unfair State Patronage to Romanists. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 31 October 1902

; The Protestant Watelitower. Unfair State Patronage to Romanists. The announcement tliat the A.P.D.A. -would attack this abuse has stirred up Jesuit guile that pretends it is the Protestants who get all the fat things in'State appointments. Accordingly the "Catholic Press" publishes a list of the highest appointments, with salary over £700, and says that of the 135 cases on its list only three are Catholics. Of course we eannot depend upon any Homish statement— from the Cardinals down—but if, among 13 judges we find only one a Gatholic, it is as bad in Ireland, and Mr. Michael J. F. McCarthy, an Irish Romanist, in his boot, "Five Years in Ireland," explains why Protestants, justly the lugher positions. At page 286, Mr. McCarthy Says, "There is no more generally voiced •omplaint in 'the press of the rest of Ireland (R; C. part) than that which alleges -that an undue preference is given to Protestants, as against Catholics, in the bestowal of salaried appointments. For instance, it w...

Mrs. Allan's Dancing Classes [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 31 October 1902

Mrs. Allan's Dancing Classes The Lyceum was filled to overflowing by a most fashionable and appreciative audience last Saturday afternoon, on the occasion of Mrw. Allan's last dancing1 lessou of the sea>on. About forty of her pupils took part, their ages ranging from the young lady well advanced in her teens to a mite of only three years of age. Mrs. Allan's reputation as a teacher of the Terpsichorean)art is founded on a rock, and the exhibition gi**en by her pupils on Saturday afternoon cannot but enhance her enviable reputation. The programme embraced no less than thirty items, all rich in variety, and executed with a high degree of skill and intelligence. The dancers were equally at home in a dashing ballet as they were in the stately minuet or graceful gavotte. Two of the most popular items were the baby's polka and the cotillion, danced by wee mites, dressed as grandmas. The nutional dance*, beautifully costumed in characteristic raiment, evoked loud applause, and the vario...

The Post Office Clock. WHY DOES IT STOP SO OFTEN? IS ROMAN CATHOLICISM THE REASON? [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 31 October 1902

The Post Office Clock. WHY DOES IT STOP SO OFTEN? IS ROMAN CATHOLICISM THE BEASON ? Citizens have been veiy much put about of late by the frequent and sudden stoppage of the Post Office clock. No reason for this extraordinary state of affairs bad been given by the postal officials, and the only solution of the problem that the " Watchman " can arrive at, is that Archbishop Kelly, during his peregrinations, has so filled the atmosphere with Boman Catholicism that some of it has got into the works of the clock; which, being a Protestant " ticker,", has promptly gone on strike. - 1 Were the clock rot a good Protestant clock, , and a rigid teetotaller, we might suspect it of I complicity with the~wine ana spirit business.
