An Important PronouncementTime Has Come for Court of Quasi- Arbitration. k general meeting of the Arch- bishops and l]ishops of ireland was held recently at St Patrick's College, Maynooth. His Eminence, Cardinal Logue, presiding. "The bitter ordeal of a series of strikes, from which the country is painfully emerginh, has excited sor- row and pity hi the hreast of every- one who has a heart to feel for our people. As the pastors of the whole flock, bound to seek justice and mercy for all, but laden with a special load of care for the 'toiling masses, who are often the least able to defend their rights, we llave witnessed with in- tense grief the enormous damage en- tailed on tllousands of workmen and their families, .on the railway and other companies, their shareholders and customers, and especially on the community at large in Ireland. "The worst aspect of this sad busi- ness is tllat the main criss was pre- cipitated under the guidance of ntis- chiefmakers who have shown them- selves as reckless about the fate of the Irish workingman as they have been indifferent to the life of our ris- ing trade and dascent indnstries. A more glaring instance of the evil of being tied to Great Britain in our local affairs could not well be found. The leading conflict was not de- creed by the freel yelected representa- tives of an Irish organization formed for the protection of Irish labor. Neither was tbe general railway strike ordered for snch legitimate purposes as to obtain hours of employnlent, but for the blind purpose of a sympa- thetic strike, the principle of which leading trades unionism itsel/, as well as to industry and civilization. In any recourse to the formidable expedi- ent of a strike or a lockout the first essential is to have one's own inlme- diate quarrel just, and, assuredly, the recent sad experience has taught a sharp lesson of the need of wise and prolonged consultation before resort- ing to extreme courses. "It is to sound public opinion, formed on Christian principles and keen on justice between man and man', that we look ultimately for the main public safeguard against the ruinous convulsions of strikes and lockouts• But we think that the time has come when legislation might well require that all great conflicts be- tween employers and employes, not otherwise settled, should be referred to a definite and fairly constituted court of quasi-arbitration, and that any party declining to accept the ar-' bitral reward should not be permitted to resort to a strike until a fixed and sufficient time has elapsed to enable the public mind to grasp the whole situation as stated from the court.

"May we not, it is asked, trust the people? Yes, we trust the people, as the framers of our Constitution trust- ed them. as the people usually trust themselves when iuterests other than political are at stake--remitting those interests to experts. We trust the people when they treat matters with which they are conversant. "In the long run American public opinion will be sure to right itself. The misfortune is, as we know too well, the people may suffer from a teml)orary excitement. From the consequences of such excitement we should strive to save the Republic. "With the initiative and referen- dum legislative bodies become mere hureaus of registration and exchange for popular views and opinions. All conclusive authority is lost to them. A small fraction of the population sets the machinery of legislation in motion, retards or annuls its decrees. And this for all subjects, the most al}struse and complicated. The ulti- mate verdict, it is true, rests with the whole people, but many, we must ad- mit, are the prohlems regarding which the whole people have no adequate knowledge, to which, in the throes of a political campaign, the people are unable to give the requisite reflec- tion. "But the worst is the recall. Sta- bility and independence in office for a fixed period of time are essential• Li- able to recall, the official is continu- ously watchful if public opinion. And then we must remember the peril to the public peace of the Colnlnon- wealth. Fifteen or even ]o per eent of the voters at a preceding election gathered, probalfly, /rom th edefeated party, may force the recall and bring on the turnloil of a new campaign. "But what if the official has proven himself unworthy of his trust? Our laws and Constitution provide a rem- edy. Let him be impeached and judg- ed by well-established and impartial courts. "The peril of the recall is shown when it is extended to the judiciary. If ever independence from popular clamor is imperiously demanded it is wben men are bidden to speak m the name of supreme justice, regardless of consequences; when absolute cahn- ness of mind is the prerequesite to a decision. "\\;Vhatever the social or political revolutions with which the country may be threatened, for the sake of America, let us pray the God of na- tions, let there be no sacriligious hand laid upon the courts, impairing their independence or lowering their majesty." In his public sermon delivered in Baltimore on Sunday, October I, Car- dinal Gibbons expressed views similar to those of Archbishop Ireland. He made a plea for the retention of pres- ent political landmarks and opposed the referendum, the recall and popu- lar election of Senators. Of the ref- erendum and the recall of judges he said : "To give to the masses the right of annulling the acts of the Legislature is to substitute mob law for estab- lished law. "To recall a judge llecause his de- cisions do not meet with popular ap- proval is an insult to the dignity, the independence and the self-respect of our judiciary. Far less menacing to the Commonwealth is an occasional corrupt or incompetent jndge than one who would be the habitual slave of a capricious nmltitude, who has always his ear to the ground trying to find out the verdict of the people." --America. ALL SAINTSALL SOULS. Last Wednesday and Thursday, November  and 2, the Church cele- brated two of her most important feasts, All Saints and All Souls, re- specively. The reason for celebrating both these feasts are plainAIl Saints to give praise to God in His saints and to repay to the saints themselves the honor which they merit for having made it the work of their" earthly life to pronaotc ;he honor of God; to im- press vividly upon our nlinds that wc arc members of that holy Catholic Church whice believes in the com- munion of saints--that is, in the com- nmnion of all truc Christians who be- long to the Church triumphant in heaven, to the Church suffering in Purgatory and to the Church militant upon earth, but more particularly to cause us earnestly to cousider the connnunion of saints in heaven with us, who are yet battling on earth; to, exhort us to raise our eyes and hearts. especially on this day, to heaven, where before the throne of God is gathered the innumerable multitude of saints of all countries, times, na- tionalities and ranks of life who have faithfully followed Christ and left us glorious examples of virtues which we ought to imitate. This we can do, for the saints, too, were weak men, who fougl]t and conquered only by the grace of God which will not be denied to us. And, finally, to honor those saints for whom. during the year, there is no special festival ap- pointed I)y the Church. All Souls--to remember in our prayers all the faithful departed. The theological basis for tbe feast is the doctrine that the sonld which on de- parting from the body are not per- fectly cleansed from venial sins or have not fully atoned for past trans- gressions are debarred from the bea- tific vision and that the faithful on earth can help them by prayers, ahns, deed, and especially by the sacrifice of hte Mass. MONEY CRAZE IS CURSE OF THE PRESENT TIME. "The greed of money," says the Catholic Advance, "has all but dried up the life-giving streams of charity love of God and love of the neigh- bor--which the Savior of the human race made issue from the barren rock of pagamsm. The Twentieth Cen- tury is illustrating the conditions which were so condenmed in the First Century, when people were divided into freedom and slaves and money was the god of the universe. The mod- ern skyscraper, with its property in a state of excessive wealth production a twenty-five-foot lot with an acre of house accommodation in every eight stores--is typical of the nnchristian selfishness wlich prevails in our times. The awful 'trust' is another expression of the loss of cllarity among men of the Twentieth Cen- tury. The religion of Mammon knows no charity, its devotees, like huugry beasts, devour their kind. Money hunger makes inen savages. The ony remedy for this demoralizing disease is to be found in early teach- ing of the truth of Christianity. It was effectnal in taming Pagans of the first centuries; it liberated slaves; it built the hospital a,ad asylum; it con- trolled hte appetites and provided for the poor and helpless; it cffected the brotherhood of men and pointed to heaven as the object of existence weaned men's hearts from the debas- taught to be a means of odandeaing. ing things of earth. Wealth was taugght to be a means of doing good, and those who possessed wealth be- lieved that they were only stewards or agents in God's providence for bene- fiting mankind. STRANGE REMARK. The remark has frequently been made that the Church must come down to the people. It sounds .as strange to a Catholic as it would to say the human body must come down to its members. With Catholics it is impossible to separate the Church from the people, for tle Church is a living body, with its "head who is a sovereign pontiff. The spiritual life of the Church is the same in the head and members, for the Church does not exist for the Pope, but the Pope for the Church, that he and the great governing body, the hierarchy, may give to the members altogether the • treasures intrusted, to them by Christ. Pilot, Boston;" NO WORD COMES TO THE IDLE SHOPMEN. Hopes of Iron Mountain Employes Dampened When Small Is Silent. The hopes ot the Iron Mountain employes who were laid off at the lo- comotive shop Tuesday were consid- erably dampened yesterday when no respits came in the way of an expect- ed telegram from J. W. Small of St. Lonis, superintendent of machinery, to the effect that the road would al- low all of the men to work half the time instead of working half the usual froce. When the lira, rumor of the 5o per cent reduction in the working force of the shops was heard by the men on Monday a meeting of the shop eln- ployes was held and a vote was taken in favor of shorter hours instead of a rudeced force. This petnlon was tele- graphed to Mr. Small Tuesday, and an answer was expected yesterday. Nearly 3oo men, or half of the work- ing force of each department of the locomotive shops, are idle. Sonic of those who are laid off arc optimistic, taking hopes from tile remark made by onc of the eml)loyes by his de- partment foreman yesterday. The forenmu told the cmploye, who had gone to the shops after working cloth- ing that he had better leave them at the sllops, as he would soon be back at work. Others are pessimistic. Rumors had it yesterday that a cut of 5o pal cent would be made in the roundhouse, in the car shops and other del)artments before another week• The officials were non-connnittal on this rumor. Argcnta business nlen as a rule are not dispirited. The brewing trouble on th Rock Island between the coln- pany and the shop employes has been the cause of some anxiety, but the lay-off of the Iron Mountain em- ployes is not considered to be a heavy blow. Many of the employes laid off are of the transient class, some, in fact, not having been in Argenta more than a month. "KID" McCOY AND DIVORCE. The Hebrew prize lighter who sails under false colors as one of Erin's blood, "Kid" McCoy, is "'putting on the mittens" again to enter the matri- monial arena for the eighth timel Mnsing philosophically over the an- nouncement, the Evening Telegraph grows satirically humorous. It says: "Divorce is not what it used to he. The news that "Kid" McCoy is about h) take his eighth wife shows that we might as well admit this and turn our attention to other thingsuot to higher things, there being few higher things than the American divorce rate. Time was--well, within the menaory of young men--when a divorced man or woman was a marked individual,. when two divorces brought newspa- per fame and three of 'era gave the bearer a leading role in Broadway drama. The drama, having weathered the Cohan-spangled banner and pa- pa's wife play, survived this fresh as- sault, and divorce as a histrionic qual- ification is now Talling into disrepute. This is as it should be. Novelty is the thing. Boom days in the divorce bus- iness are all but over, and the Reno ntushroom reputation will no longer pack the house on an openitg night." DIVORCE. Divorce, remarks the New York Snn, is a social aihnent of the poor and the ignorant, not of the well-to- do and well-educated classes. This news is enlightening. The benighted pfiblic have long been persuaded that those most infected with the itch for making these new matrimonial ven- tures were found in the ranks of pro- essional or moneyed men and women. It is not "the poor" certain- ly that have made Reno infamous, nor are those who figure most prominent- ly in the divorce courts people whom the Times would consider "ignorant," though in point of fact they are in- deed densely ignorant of the true na- ture of Christian Marriage.America. t k
