PAPAL EDICT READ.
St. Joseph's Church Hears the
Secret Order Encyclical. '
IT WILL TAKE EPFZCT AT OHO.
Tbe Kaljhti ot l'j thias, Son of Temper
aace nod OdU Fallot Alund At
The One RIot ATi-ctril anJ What lis
Chier Tribunal Hu to Say About It.
Yesterday mornin; the order was
formally announced at St. Joseph's
church by Eev. Father Thomas
Mackin, in the form 01 acommunjea
tion from Bishop Spaulding. of Peo
ria, in whose diocese Hock Island is
included, with reference to mem
bership on the part of Roman Cath
olics in certain secret organizations.
The letter simply dated Catholics
are required to abandon membership
in the Knights of Pythias. Odd Fel
lows or Sons of Temperance.
, I'ope l.entf Edict.
This is in accordance with the
edict of Leo XIII., promulgated
about a year ago, pulling under
the ban the Knights of Pythias,
Sons of Temperance nnd Odd Fellows.
The bull will take c fleet at once, and
hereafter the sacraments nud rites of
the church will be rcfaied to nuy of
its membcrj entering into or contin
uing in the orders proscribed. The
reading of the edict was iu compli
ance with the following letter from
Archbishop Satolli, the representa
tive in America.
His Eminence Cardinal Monaco, in
a letter of Mav 27. anuounccs to we
that lie has learned that several
American papers havo asserted on
the authority of prelates that the
promulgation of the decree of the
toiy oilioe concerning the three foci-
etius. Odd Fellows, Knights of Py
thias and Sons of Temperance, is not
obligatory, but left to the judgment
of the bishops as a disciplinary and
variable matter. Moreover, the same
journals atlirm that his promulgation
has, by superior autuoritr, been tlis-
courng'dand suspended, at least in
some dioceses. His eminence greatly
deplores this state of affairs and
again recommends that the decree
be published and enforced in every
ilioccse iH suidi way as the respective
bishops shall deem most expedient.
I had assured the holy see as long
ago as last February that the decree
had been published in all the prov
inces of this country; but if by
chance your excellency should know
that in any diocese of your province
this obligatory publication has not
been made, in the name of the holy
ollice and by the authority of the
holy see. I bog your excellency to see
thai it be immediately and faithfully
F.y this letter of Li 3 eminence the
obl'gation of the decree and of its
publication is put beyond all ijneis
tion, nnd it is no longer lawful for
any Catholic journal to express any
doubt concerning it. With senti
ments of highest esteem and frater
nal charity I remain most faithfully
yours in Xt.
Fit Anciir. Satolli.
Knights of l'ythiu Mont Affected.
The Knights of Pythias is the or
der most affected, as Koinan Catho
lics have little or no representation
in cither of, the others. What the
Pythians themselves think of the
new decree against them can bust be
judged from the words of G. W.
Herd man, chief tribune 1 1 the Graml
Tribunal. He said: "I can say pos
itively that the Knights of Pythias
will take no action in regard to their
condemnation by the pope, and will
pass no legislation permitting Roman
Catholics to retain their rueiuber.-!ii
in any but the orthodox way. I do
not believe many will withdraw, be
cause both individually anil as a body
we regard the order as u 11 jus'. The
order Has never received either polit
ical or religious opposition before.
We cannot conceive of any reason for
it. 1 do not know what steps the
popo has taken to liud out the nature
of our organization, but at the Balti
more council in 1586 Human Catholic
dignitaries examined our constitu
tion anil by-lawi, and I think our
ritual. Those who wish to withdraw
can do so with perfect propriety and
no sacrifice of principles. Of course
they are bound in the strictest honor
never to divulge any of the secret
work of the body, as "they have taken
an oath to that effect; but by taking
a withdrawal card they cin sever
theirconncction very eas'ily. Should
they belong to the'endowment rank
and withdraw, they lose whatever
they have paid in and do not receive
any future benefit from the insur
ance." Effect or the Hall.
The Chicago Times-Herald says in
commenting in a general way on the
effect of the edict: "The strict ob
servancc.of the bull will no doubt be
unpleasant, for many will have to
sa-. rilice not a little in resigning
from these bodies. There mav be
cases where it will work an absolute
hardship, as where a member has
paid into the endowment fund of the
Knights of Pythias for many years,
and is now too old to join any other
insurance organization. Such a case
may be excepted, but it must be re
ferred to ami be judged by the arch
bUhop. When the decree was made
public about a year ago. two months
were given in "which pastors could
file protests. None being received
that were weighty enough to require
its amendment." its early enforce
ment was looked for. But the arch
bishop no doubt wished t give Ko
rean Catholic numbers of those or
ganizations ample time to withdraw
quietly and unostentatiously, and it
is known that many availed them
selves of tbe opportunity."
COMPANY IS INSOLVENT.

ixitloaofthe Tri-Cily Company.
The long expected has happened in
the affairs of the Davenport & Bock
Island Kail way company. It is in
solvent, and a reorganization has
been pr-iposcd. Only the wise finan
ciering, business capacity and execu
tive ahUity of Prc:dvnt Louderback,
and the excellent management cn tbe
ground by Secretary Lardner has
kept the company afloat for several
years. The three cities have given
all the encouragement and coopera
tion possible, in the exemption from
paving for two years, etc., but the
patronage ha not come up to antici
pations this year, this owing largelv
to the advent of the bicye'e, with the
lingering effect of the preceding
years' dull times which, while disap
pearing daily, is still felt somewhat.
Saturday President Louderback
issued the following notice to the
stockholders of the comprint:
The officers of the Davenport &
Hock Island Kailway company are
compelled to notify you that the
company is unable to pay its -debts,
and for that reason, to continue bus
iness, without reorganization. The
officers recommt-nd that a new com
pany be organized, with a capital
stock of guJO.OOd, to take over the
property of the old, upon it dissolu
tion, and that all stockholders iu the
present company bball have the right
to subscribe for the stock of tho new
company in the proportion of the
amount of their holdings in the pres
ent company. All subscriptions to tiie
capital stock of tin new company
must be paid in full, either in cash
or by cancelling indebtedness which
the subscribers might hold against
the present company, and tlia pay
ment of which the no company may
have assumed. It is believed that a
voluntary transfer by the present to
a new company, which will assume
and pay the indebtedness of the
present company, except its first
mortgage, will be preferable to a re
ceivership, and a sale umlt r a decree
of court. 1 n format in 1 as t I'.ie debts
of the company will be furnished on
application. It is expected to call a
special stockholders' meeting of the
company to take action upon the
matter, nnd this circular is now is
sued to inform stockholders of the
situation ami afford them ample time
for consideration of the proposed

IT IS TOTTERING.
The Labor Congress on Its
DEIFTIEG DST0 A POLITICAL BODY.
Controlled by Men for Individual Beuetlt
The Carpenters Withdraw, Others Will
Follow, and Probably Another U.uln
tlou VU1 be Formed.
From present indications it is only
a question of a short time until the
Tri-City Labor congress will have
dwindled down in membership to
the few individuals and their friends
who have finally succeeded in con
trolling the body, which has become
more of a political organization than
the purpose for which it was formed.
This state of affairs lias disgusted
the Carpenters' and Joiners' union
into abandoning the congress, and
there is every prospect of the major
ity of the other labor organizations
following, as the manner in w hich
the congress meetings are conducted
is entirely foreign to the interests of
labor and contrary to the princi
ples upon which the mission, is es
tablished. It is high time the laboring
people were awakening to a realiza
tion of the consequences which will
inevitably follow t'ueir association
with aud submission to the desires of
such people. The congress-was or
ganized to enhance the cause of
labor; to better the condition of the
working classes; to seek to adjust
matters between employe and em
ployer when called upon to do so by
an organization deserving of its co
operation, and to keep aloof from
polities and religion, and endeavor to
keep the embers of friendship burn
ing between the workingman and his
employer, showing partiality to no
one extending recognition to its
Icnnrlns It Principle.
But far from keeping within the
limitation cf its principles has the
labor congress Lcen. It has turned a
deaf ear to tbe protest ations of its own
fellow organizations, which sought
to prevent and afterwards to redress
wrongs committed to the utter dis
regard of harmony and bodily Inter
est. This is no more plainly illus
trated than iu the idea of singling
out three papers the Saturday Her
ald, Moliue Mail and Populist and
indorsing them as worthy the sup
port of laboring men. The natural
inference would be that the balance
of the publications recognizing union
labor were not entitled to the friend
ship of the labor cause, whereas all
of them tany the union label, there
by manifesting a spirit of coopera
tion with union rules, and a 1 of
them, with the exception of the pro
prietor of the Populist, whose paper
has baen so generously favored, em
ploying union men and paying union
prices, lho tlnee papers were 11-
dorsiiil a few meetings ago, and when
the printers and members of other
organizations learned of the facts
thev became indignant, called a meet
ing and adopted resolutions demand
ing a reconsideration of the matter,
holding that one ot the papers fa
vored was a partisan orgau and that
the interests ot unionism were as
well taken care of by one political
paper as by another. The printers
appeared before the congress and ex
plained the injustice of such a move,
requesting a reconsideration of the
newspaper indorsement. But their
appeal was in vain.
Another Futile Attempt.
The question was again brought
up at yesterday s meeting and a res
olution presented by W. N. Hanna to
rescind all former action bearing on
the indorsement of any paper. This
brought Dr. C. T.'Lindley and
T. H, Ellis to their feet. They
of courso deprecated the idea
as it would interfere with the
future welfare of the people's
party and the Populist, although
they did not so express themselves.
They puilcd the wool over enough
others' eyes to defeat the move by
tabling it. An amendment extcna
ing the good will of the congress to
to all publicationi was passed, how
ever. The printers are disgusted, as a-e
other organizations, with the unfair
tnc!cncy of the congress, and tho
expression of condemnation yester
day will probably lead up to a move
ment to organize a new central body
wnicu will represent labor prin
