Tho general Intention of the
Sacred Heart League for November
Is "Helping the Poor Souls in
Purgatory," surely a most appropri
ate one for the season. All of us
have relatives or frlend3 who havo
passed out of this life. It Is not
for us to forget them. - "It Is a
holy and a -wholesome thought to
pray for the dead."

Just now, when strenuous efforts
are being made to drag religion into
tho political vortex, it is not out of
Dlaco to attain relterato tho fact
that the Catholic church has naught
to do with the political views of her
members. If those who foolishly
permit themselves to believe the
nonsensical stories that are told
concerning tho church and politics
would merely go over the circle of
their Catholic acquaintances and
learn first hand their political be
lief, they would have no trouble in
discovering that they are members
of almost all parties. The church
Is open as the light of day. She
has no secrets. Her ritual is a
ritual of prayer, not a political
handbook; her pulpits are not for
the purpose of delivering political
harangues, but for tho purpose of
explaining the gospel; her priests
are not bothering about the success
of this or that candidate, though
they aio American citizens and have
the right to discuss public affairs
as have other men. No Catholic
society and no society of Catholics
Is a political organization. Such a
body is impossible because of the
widely divergent political beliefs of
the members. And in spito of all
this thero are miserable bigots who
Imagine they can gain a point by
declaring that the Catholic church
is a political organization.
man offensive on the west. It is
argued now that with tho largo
British forces asslmlllated in the
military ensembles and with the
Rumanian army a known quantity,
further accessions worth while can
come to tho entente only from its
population growth as more men will
reach military age.
About eighteen per thousand of
tho population's males reach mili
tary age annually, which would
mean that Germany can count on a
yearly reserve of 630,00 young men,
Austria-Hungary about 360,000,
Bulgaria 52,000 and Turkey
170,000. Superannuation and losses
in the field will more than swallow
these accessions, but this is equally
true of the entente armies.
Probably tho war has now
reached its maximum as far as tho
number of available fighting men is
concerned. Tho future must show
a gradual weakening on all sides.
But tho determination to continue
the war seems to be growing
stronger. Any suggestion of peace
is resented with bitterness. As long
as this condition prevails there can
be no hope of peace. Only com
plete exhaustion can put an end to

""Comparing the two Presidential
candidates Robert Herrick, writing
for the Republican Chicago Tribune,
says President Wilson's conception
of statesmanship seems to bo to
hold tho ear close to the ground,
to listen attentively, to interpret
agilely what the voters want. He
has "done something" for labor, for
the progressive minded, for the
South, for tho little business man,
for the farmer, for every class that
can muster a respectable number.
Referring to Hughes ho says the
Republican candidate offers only
promises to tho voter. Promises and
hopes! With these he has been
liberal. Ho has entertained the
electorate with rosy visions of
prosperity, with little homilies on
efficiency, economy, and the glories
of Republican government. No
body knows what he thinks on the
greatest questions of the day, no
body can pretend to say what he
will do should he be elected. He
is the modol of political discretion
Itself! He picks up votes here and
thero, industriously grinding out
day and night his platitudinous
political tune. "It would not be
good politics," his supporters say,
"for him to do anything else. Think
how easily he might offend a large
body of voters!" It may bo good
politics to hide your mind in a
cloud of words, but it is rotten
statesmanship, and that is what his
political leadership has come to be

As the war in Europe drags on
It seems to grow more hopeless.
There is no doubt that there is a
keen longing for peace among the
people of the warring nations; but
the governments are still as far
from showing any disposition to
ward peace as they were two years
ago. All that statesmen and mili
tary men can see is preparation for
continued war on a larger scale
despite their enormous losses. Only
a week ago the British War Minis
ter, Lloyd-George, declared that tho
only way to Insure victory was to
lay the foundations for a war ex
tending over a prolonged period.
And Parliament voted another Im
