Boss Wells says that it wasn't his
fault that the distribution of the mails
Sunday evening was discontinued, but
that Inspector Guy T. Gould ordered the
suspension in accordance with post office
resulations three weeks ago. It is
not very likely that Mr. Gould should
huve ordered the change without Mr.
Wells' recommendation, and if the latter
had had the interests of Rock Island bus
iness men at heart he would have called
the inspector's attention to ths fact that
tbe people of Rock Island bad become
accustomed to tbe accommodations affect
ed, and that instead of diminishing the
usefulness of the service it should be
improved. A growing city like Rock
Island needs a progressive postmaster.not
a retrogressive one.

London", May . -Cardinal Manning
tnd Archbishop Walsh are engaged ia
"ransiating the pope's encyclical on the
labor question, the Latin text of which is
aow iu their possession. The document '
:n its original form consists of fifty-seven j
;viges. Its object is clearly to refute the i
doctrines of the Socialists, while at the
t ame time pointing out the duty ot the
tate to interfere to a certain degree to
regulate the relations between employers
and employed. The Socialist position is
stated from the Roman Catholic stand
point and reviewed in all its bearings.
The conclusion is reached that the solu
iion implied in the abolition ot private
property and the substitution of common
ownership is delusive and untenable.
The Church First Above AIL
The arguments used are merely a repe
tition in short, hut forcible, form of those
Heretofore employed by Roman Catholic
theologians ou the subjict. Tbe true
tolution of the labor question, the pope
(ays, is to be found ia tbe gospel, which,
tightly studied, would teach employers
i.nd employed to become united, while
fulfilling their respective duties. The
church has always sought to promote the
application of the principles stated in the
topeland to give moral and material
i.elp as inculcated iu the doctrines ot
Christ. The admission is made, how
ever, that various principles aud elements
tot strictly religious iu essence must con
tribute to the solution. But first and
above all is the church, without which all
else is ineffectual.

eacyclical is very skilfully worded so as

There is also evidence that Lis holiness
is in sympathy to n marked degree with
the position taken by Cardinal Gibhjus ia

t-.i particular, the document maintains
t lat the state not only has the riht, but
t le duty is imposed upon it, to iuterfere
