TWO CATHOLIC BLANCHES.
Progressive Catholics Lean
Toward Secret hoc eties
DISCUSSED AT BALTIMORE.
Decision From Rome Will
Settle the Matter for
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
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. Ji nhs.

END OF THE BARBERS.
jST. PAIL JTIAN WAS ISLECTED
; Visitor* Pleased With St. Paul-
Meet Next at Evans ville,
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

perfectly natural, but it was ildpouVjl*

Dr. Hanley arrived he gave directions
to have the girl carried out into the

advised that she be taken to the city

good things for this
Christmas Sale of Gown Patterns.
It will interest you to see how great a gathering of thoroughly
dependable and stylish materials he has collected and enabled us to
offer at prices that a few months ago would have seemed fabulous.
Our Paris correspondent confirms what we have known for a
considerable time, that Orepons will be the correct thing for Gowns
and Skirts in the summer of'9s. We will have them in abundance in
every conceivable weave- Crepon Buerre, Crepon Plisse, Crepon
Raye, Crepon Mirrior, and hosts of others, and they will be here in

adapted for Spring and Summer wear. They will come in under
the new tariff, which takes effect on the first of next month. If
you have any idea of buying Crepons, we should advise you to wait
a few weeks, and we will save you probably one-half of the price
you are now asked for them.
