THROUGH TRAINS DISCONTINUED ON MAIN LINE Flood Waters From Hymelia Gap Overflowing Southern Pacific Track East of Morgan City. Advice has been issued by the management of the Southern Pacific railroad, that owing to the flood waters from the llvmeiia crevass hav inor overtaken their track raising crew and a number of miles of their track being under water beyond Mhorlan c (ity, the eastern end of their track is t is completely disabled. For several days the trains were operated with water completely over the rails, in the flooded districts, and a further raise Saturday threatened the lire- t loxes of the engines, so it b2canmet noece:.sary to discontinue olieratin ii tri ns over that section ,of the track. The a~nnou cemient that was given oulit Sunday that until further notice, the only Ne v Orleans-.louston trains that would be operated would be Nos.9 and 10, No. 9 leaving New Orleans at 7 a. m. instead of in the evening as heretofore. While the schedule has not been changed, still No. 9 is run ninig aboput seven hours behind her regnlar time. No. 10 leaves Houston for New Orleans at 6:30 being due to arrive here on her regular schedule. Nos. 5 and 6 have not been removed but go only as far east as shriever. Their regular schedule remains as heretofore. r!os. 3 and 4, the Orioles, were removel for a few .days )but are now running on their regular sched ule. The through trains will be detoured running over the Yazoo and Missis sippi Valley tracks between New Or. leans and a point opposite Donald sonville. At that place the passengers will be transferred across the Missis sippi in ferry boats. From the main line of the direct IIousten-N3w Or leans route the trains will le detoured to Donaldsonville from a point west of the flooded section.

Doescher's Letter on Cath olicism vs. Socialism. Editor of lice lielt Journal: \ hen I read tll . iE . I. I )oe.sc'her's letter attacking- the "Militia of Cihri.-t," my lirst thought was unot to, answer it at all, forI the simple treason tihat it is hockfull of c(ontradictions and shows so evidently the writer's superfhcial knowledge of Imodern so cialismin as it is actually heing pirolo gted in the United States andl else- al where, that the article in question ic of its own refutation, it Howe ver it may not he useless to in call the attention of the redtl er's o(f (; this journal to a few pointits touched ht uplon by Mr. Doescher. w In grandiloquent languaa e the writ- ii er ventuores to declare that, "theIT It words militia, battle, etc., stc est the nI the mIilitarv, the return to hIrute fIorce, to harbarism, and has (no place in i controversy (of the 20th ceuntury." So far Mlr. I))oesciher, I may assure hin l) 11 that the Militia of Christ is :imply I ll 0 t ,organization established for the tie- i fense of the christian order o(f society , and of tihe American constitution tt al.ainst the attacks eslpeciall of so cialism. i Furthermore the memil)ers of that aT orgailization will lnot use bullets oir t dvnamite or in other words imitate i the violent methods resorted to tine 0 and aLgain by the nliitant socialists in various parts of the world, also e sometimes in our great cotluntry, V I They will defend the A\iuerican in- t] stitution by meaiils of the press, lec tures, etc., etc. it "If the struggle of the future is to tl be between the Catholic church and , socialisim. then the church i ill e the I aggressor."' I sulppose that Imy ,(,)p t nent knows that the church or h rather religion is beting attacked t continuously in socialist lectures and C newsouapers; niorelover, the church ex- C isted already manily centuries before t the first socialist was bl)il, ilcie qutntly thee canl not be any questioni Il of aLgression but rather of self de- 1 fense. 1i "Socialism is not cource:rned about I religion." But why does it attiack l religion then? Why dles the cateo chisl flor the socialist Sunday schoil f children teach that there is no God, no soul, etc ? The follhI-wing woirds!I of Mr'. Doescher: "The burning ques- ( tion of the future is not heaven or hell but bread, in other words how to make a living," would rather sub stantiate my conclusion that the writer believes in economic determinism or the materialistic conuception of history 7 which is the fundamental dogma of v Mlarxian or scientific socialism. In f the opinion of Frederick Engels it was byv this conception of history that socialism advanced to the rank of c science. Anyone acquainted with in ternational socialism and the Ameri can, German, French, Dutch, Italian, etc. literrtture knows that the works of 1 1ebel, Labriola, Vanderville, Lewis, Blatchford, Untermann and others, adopt the Marxian theory destinctive of all positive relicgion ani balief in a personal God. Thie chriistians of all denominations maintain that mnan does not live by bread alone. I can not think tiiat Mr. Doescher lives ex. elusively by that. Other things are needed in the life of an intelligent creature of God. At the Chicago convention of the Ssocialist party (19(i8) the resolutton was passed declaring that soclalism is not concerned with matters of re ligious belier. Arthur Lewis, author t anrd lecturer, said: ''If we mustspeak SI provose that we shlall go before this country with the truth, not with a lie." Hillquit himself declared that it was intended as a subterfuge for the use of socialist auitato:-s in dealing with catholic working men. Unter man believed, that it was nonsensical to urge men to become athesists before they become socialists. "We must first get these men convinced of the rationality of our economic and po litical progLram and then, after we have made socialists of them, we can talk to them inside our ranks of the lotrical consequences of our explana tiont of society and nature;" these cousequences are materialism and atheism. Many other delegates proved by their own words that socialism is essenti allv atheistic and materialistic. Yet the resolution was carried by a majority of only one out ot a total of 157 votes that frere east. The adop tion of the resolution was simply a strategic. move designed as a clever devise to conceal the real socialist view on religion, and another of tile manifest frauds by which the leaders of socialism plan to foist their vicious system on the American peonie. I remember the Latin proverb, 'Mandus vult decipi," "the world wants to be 'fooled," but I hate to add "Deciphi THE fl TIli'S !ATARL DAY At Enthusiastic Mass Meeting Tues day, Committees Appointed and Plans Laid for Sp!endid Celebration.

Every honest man must try to prevent that. I am at a loss to know what the public schools, public roads, the postoflice system, etc., have to do with socialism. According myv honest opinion not more than the man in the moon. Socialism is generally defined by all the socialist classes as a "theory which advocates the trans formation of all capital or means of production and distribution into the common property of society or of the state." (VictorCathrein-Social. ism p. 17.) Mr. Doescher would refer the schools, roads, to the means of pro* duction and aistribution.
