TWO CATHOLIC BLANCHES. Progressive Catholics Lean Toward Secret hoc eties —Conservatives Oppose. DISCUSSED AT BALTIMORE. Decision From Rome Will Settle the Matter for All Cathoiics. The alleged espousal of Pythianship l>y two promdieiit local Catholics— Judge' Kelly and City Clerk Premier ga?l—lias'awakenetl fresh interest iv a subject winch lias received little atten tion of late years, viz., the attitude of ttfe Catholic church towards secret so cieties. A great diversity of opinion seems to exist, even among Cath olics themselves, as to the posi tion ol the church on this question. It is well known that the ban of the Church has been set upon Masonry for aires, it beinir charged «s bt'inc not only the foe oi Caihoiieity. but of Christian ity itseit. The faithful of the church have been forbidden to join the ranks of the Masonry therefore under pain of excommunication. There seems to be bui little difference of opinion as to the attitude of the church upon Masonry, but as much cannot be said witb refer ence to the church and the numerous others outside Masonry. There is not a day that one does not hear the question propounded, and often among Catholics themselves: "Are Catholics allowed to ioin the Odd Fellows?" '-Can Catholics join the Kiiiirhts of Pythias?" And so on as to the other orders. The (juestion is a mooted and an unsettled one for the reason that the church has not given a final decision in the matter. It is a nbtorio-fi fact that the Catholic church during the past few years has been ex ercisiug more lente'iiev in this matter than heretofore, and Catholics have been joining some of the orders outside of Masonry. In this as in the school question the two wings of the church— tne progressive and the conservative have clashed one with the other. Arch bishop Ireland has been oue of the leaders of The ProEresshe Spirit, it being his constant aim to American ize the cliureh in this particular as in others. In his archdiocese be has ex tended the arm of leniency to those Catholics who have gone into secret societies. He has thought it better to exercise clemency towards these people than to cut them oft entirely from the pale of the chinch. On the other hand the conservative prelates of the cliureh, those who draw their in spiration from the best Catholic thought and wisdom ot past ages, have absolutely excommunicated the secret society Catholics, refusing to them the sacraments of the church in life and a Christian burial at death. Take it In the diocese of Dubuqu?, for distance, which diocese immediately adjoins the diocese of St. Paul on toe west. Archbishop Hennessey has been rigid in his application of church doc trine to the secret society Catholic. The result has been that many of those lowan Catholics who have come under the ban ot the church in those parts have sought relier from rigid church discipline by coming into the dioct-se of St. Paul, knowing the views of the great prelate of the Saintly city. Less than a year atro there was a meeting held in Baltimore which ail the hierarchy of the church attended. The question of the attitude ot the church towards secret societies and towards Catholics joining these so cieties came up for consideration. The question was discussed in every phase, and the various secret organizations com mented upon. The Knights of Pythias organization came in for eoasfiferatioa anil during the debate it is asserted that Archbishop Ireland produced a copy of the Pythian ritual, which lie said he was 1 able to obtain only upon the strict understanding that the same was not to be made public. The ritual was critically examined, the story goes, and, after a full and free exposition of elfri cal views, it wa9 decided to submit the whole matter to the holy see at Home for decision. Pending final adjudica tion of the knotty problem, there was a tacit understanding, ai least among a part of the convention, that the es pousal of secret societies by Catholics should be tolerated, but not commend ed. In other words, the church rather regards with disfavor the uniting of Catholics with such societies, but rattier than punish by excommunication and incur the risk of losing such stray shi'ep from the fold, she prefers to tolerate the act, but not commend it. This is the position of the Church on this mat ter in these parts, and will be until Rome renders a .definite decision. Pend ing this decision Catholics, before mak ing up their mind to ride the goat, will consult witn their pastors as 10 the pro priety of joining seciet societies. The position of the church generally on this question has been this: Where there is nothing in any secret organization in imical to Catholic teaching and the •spirit of Christianity, and where one's freedom of action and conscience is not fettered by the taking of a solemn oati\ then a Catholic is at liberty to join: oth erwise not.

END OF THE BARBERS. jST. PAIL JTIAN WAS ISLECTED PBBSIMBNT. ; Visitor* Pleased With St. Paul- Meet Next at Evans ville, Indiana. The baiben completed their labors late Saturday niifht, or early Sunday morning. The members ot the barber*' union of St. Paul are now among the happiest men in this city, naving for lfie second time one of their organiza tion elected an international president. Four years ago the St. Paul union sent as its delegate J. C. Meyers to the Fort Wayne convention, at which piac» he was elected president, holding that po sition until now. Two years ago lie moved to St. Louis, where he bas re sided ever since, still aclinu aa presi dent, beinsj re-elected for the third time. Aud now, after having served four years, he turns the office over to the well known labor leader of the city, M. E. Murray. 'Ihe contosl for president last Satur day in the convention, which ended about midnight, was a hot one, the light being between William Llain, of To ledo, 0., and Mr. Murray. Mr. Bain is considered a very competent gentle man, but found that he had a hard man to beat in the person of Mr. Murray. Mr. Muuray will remain in St. Paul, making this his headquarters,oniy going on the road when necessary for the benefit ot the international union. A large amount oi' business was trans acted during the three sessions Satur day aud Saturday night. The interna tional constitution and by-laws were completed and adopted; resolutions were also adopted thanking the local union for the manner in which it enter tained the delegates, and also thanKiug the governor and the mayor, the Com mercial club, and Rev. Dr. Carson, Col. Monfort, of the Windsor hotel, and many others who assisted in making their stay in St. Paul a pleasant one, and one long to be remembered. Most of the delegates left for their homes last night. The others will lea/etiiis moraine W. E. Klapetzky, the inter national secretary-treasurer, left for Denver last night, going as the delegate to the American Federation of Labor, which meets today at lo o'clock. Mr. Klapetzky was instructed to vote against the re-election of Samuel Uoin pers in the event ot any other good man being proposed for president. The next convention will bo held in Evausville, md., on the tirst Tuesday of October, 18'>6, making the convention bienniai hereafter instead of annual as heretofore. The executive board, which is here given, is considered a stroiis one by the delegates who ex pressed themselves on that subject, and there is no doubt but the convention wrs a harmonious oue. Every delegate was highly pleased with St. Paul, and will always have a good word for this city and its people. The officers elected are as follows: President, M. E. Murray, St. Paul; first vice president, li. P." Miller, To peka, Kan.; second vice prosiuent, George H. Iladd, Springfield, Mass.; third vice president, Jacob Ffteher, An derson, Ind.; fourth vice president, A. C. Mendell, Concord, N. II.; fifth vice president, ML H. tifbittaker, Janes yille, Wis.; secretary-treasurer and ed itor of the Journal, W. E. Klapelzky, Syracuse, N. Y. A special mention was made in the resolutions thanking the members of the Trades and Labor assembly for the grand ball given in honor of the deie trates, and the concert given by Miss Louisa Hathaway Chryst in Ford Music hall.
