The following advertisement appears
in large type on the front page of the current number of the English
THE LATE PRESIDENT McKINLEY AND THE N.P.F.
It is a well-known fact that
Rome connived at the assassination of President Lincoln.
The late President McKinley before
his death issued a terrible exposure of the iniquities of Rome,
and kindly sent copies of it to the National Protestant Federation.
Rome has endeavoured to suppress
this document, and copies are exceedingly scarce.
Extracts from this exposure are
published by the N.P.F. in their leaflet No. 10.
Every reader of the English
Churchman should send 1s. for copies to the Hon. Sec.
Bigotry will blind men to an extraordinary degree, but I scarcely
imagined that Protestant zeal could have prompted such a scandalous
insinuation as is contained in the foregoing advertisement. The
suggestion that the Anarchist Czolgosz was an emissary of Rome,
bent upon avenging an exposure of his faith, is about as absurd
as the mind of man could devise; yet a reputably “Christian” organisation
does not hesitate to make it in order to draw attention to its publications,
and enable it to sell a few hundreds of its pamphlets.
