SOCIALISM AND THE CHURCH.
Rev. Charles Stelzle Discusses the
Church and Social Progress.
The socialists attempt to ridicule
1 lie church by saying that it has never
done anything for the common people
that their plan is far more effective
t'.ian ours. If ever there was an op
portunity for the socialists to try out
their plan among a real needy people.
such an opportunity exists among the
cannibals of the Pacific islands. Buc
it is quite noticeable that the socialists
do not go there. They are quite con
tent to wait until the church sends
out its hundreds of missionaries and
pours in its millions of dollars, produc
ing a Christian civilization, and when
it is perfectly safe to do so, the so
cialists build upon the foundation laid
by the church many years before.
Then they turn around and scorn the
church because of its "failure" to help
the masses. The ship-wrecked sailor
who saw the church sleeping in the
valley, knew that this island which
was formerly occupied by cannibal:
was now perfectly safe; because. In
stead of eating their visitors, the peo
ple now worshiped God. as the result
of the coming of Christian mission
aries, some of whom had given their
lives as a sacrifice in order to make
this condition possible.
Socialism believes in environment
trst. hoping that good character may
result. Christianity believes in char
acter first, knowing that good environ
ment will follow. The history "of the
world has proven that this principle
of Christ's is most effective in reform
ing mankind. Even in His day, when
social conditions were much worse
than they are today, Christ did not
advocate another social system in or
der to help mankind. He immediately
began to change individual men. If
that was Christ's method, we can well
afford to follow Him. There are un
doubtedly other things to do and the
church must do them, but its princi
pal business is to change bad men
into good men, and to change . them
i-ne by one. The socialists tell us that
Christianity has been trying the "char
acter first plan for two thousand
years and that we have not made very
much progress; but haven't we?
What about the cannibals, for in
stance? What about the time when
o'tr ancestors were naked savages and
drank blood and wine out of human
skulls? Is it necessary to narrate the
long story of the vilest degradation
before the teachings of Christ were
accepted, and then tell of the victories
of the cross in every land? These
things are only tod well known ex
cepting to the socialists.
Tuesday," rendered a decision in favor
of the International Printing 'Press
men's Union in its fight with the
United Typothetae of America. The
action, which originated in the United
States court of that city, grew out
of a contract claimed to have been
made by the Typothetae with the
Pressmen's Union in 1907, which pro
vided, among other things, for an
open shop and 3 nine-hour work day
until January 1, last. This contract
was entered into by committees from
the two organizations, but before that
the union was engaged in a bitter
fight to enforce the eight-hour day.
As soon as this contract was entered
into it caused objection from mem
bers of the union throughout the
country, and it was said that the com
mittee had no authority to' bind the
union, but that the latter should have
ratified the contract to make it bind
iug. At a subsequent convention of
FIGHTING THE UNIONS.
The allied printing trades of Akron,
Ohio, desire to call attention to the
fact that the Werner company of
kron is still fighting the union. This
company is putting out the following
books: "Makers of History," "His
torians History of the World," "The
Twentieth Century Encyclopedia Dic
tionary," "Maupassants' Works." etc.

HOW PRESSMEN WON.

Kick Backward Hard.
The United States circuit court of

the union this' contract was repudi- t
ted. At the same time new officers
were elected, among them being Geo.
L. Berry, president, and Patrick J.
McMullen, secretary and treasurer,
who were made the defendants in the
case. The headquarters are m Cin
cinnati, and it was for that reason
that A. R. Barnes & Co. of Sew York
City and other members ol the Ty
pothetae instituted the proceedings
The newly elected officers, acting
upon the repudiation of the contract,
took steps to secure the eight-hour
day. notwithstanding the agreement
for nine hours, and as a result strikes
occurred all ovet the country. There
upon proceedings were begun to en
join the defendants from ' taking a
referendum vote on the new proposi
tion,, from paying . strike benefits and
from advising the members of the
union to strike. The fight centered
around the question whether the so-
called contract for Bine hours sad
an open t-hop had been made wit's
authority of the anion, and whether,
even were it binding, the officers of
the Pressmen's Union could in say
event be stopped by the court from
advising their members. Judge
Thompson, before whom the case was
tried in Cincinnati, held that tie
contract was not binding on the
union, and that even if it were be

in the performance of the regular
duties expected of them.
