said to have confirmed to the cardinals

LEO'S ENCYCLICAL LETTERS
Many Important Message's Seat to tfco
World by the Lato
Poatlff, . :
The literature of the Catholio church ha
been vaatly enriched by tha encyclical let
ter of Pop Leo XIII on a variety of world
subjects pressing for solution. The first
one of note directly affecting the' church
in the United States waa Isaued in 19S,
aome months after Mgr. Batolli was in
stalled aa delegate to tha United States.
Prior to that, time considerable dlfwanslon
waa caused by, Insistence on the Bald mora
decrees requiring every parish to ereot and
maintain at least one parochial school. Op
position to the rubric schools waa carried
to the extent that In many diocese the
rites of the church were denied to parents
who sent their children to . the publlo
schools. Mgr. Batolli gave : a liberal and
democratic interpretation of the Baltimore
decree, holding that the decree could not
condemn what In many place waa Im
possible, and that the attempt to enforce
the deeree by spiritual- penalties would
work Irreparable Injury to tha- church.
This vii deemed a victory tor tha liberal
wing of the church represented by Arch
bishop Ireland and a rebuke for the con
servatlvea. The question waa aent to Rome
for final decision, which waa rendered by
rope l.eo in a letter addressed to Car
dlnal Gibbons the following year. In this
letter the pope made it clear that ' the
apostojlo .delegation, was not to be dla
turbed by dissatisfied' factlonlst.' ""Our
delegate." aald the pope, 'la aent hither
in order that our presence should be made,
aa It were, perpetual among you. by the
permanent establishment of an apostolic
delegation among ou." Moreover, the let
ter broadly indicated that the purpose of
the appointment waa the extirpation of
mo germs 01 aisaenslons ' emon Amerl.
can Catholic, "df veloped ,ln the too well
known controversies concerning the edu
cation of Cath,Qlls youth." , . .
In pursuance of thhi purpose the PJ
commended the policies of Mgr. Batolli, "In
order that, in a .matter of so grave Impor
tance as education, there may remain Do
further room for doubt or for dissension of
opinion." In effect he aald that Catholio
schools are to be promoted when It in
feasible to-do so,' but that" the1 right of
Catholio parents to send theli children to
the publlo sonools shall not be Seated. - Tha
closing paragraph of tha letter Is aa appall
to ardent patriotism. Trova the earnest
ness of your lore for your cointry," were,
his words, "so th.t '.hey who are Inter
ested with the administration of the gov
ernment may clearly recognise how strong
an Influence for the support of publlo order
and for advancement of publlo prosperity
Is to be found In tha Cathotlo church."
Worklngmea aad employers.
Admittedly the most Important of Fope
Leo' encyclicals la that on workingmen
and the relations which should obtain be
tween Christian workingmen and Christian
employers. On the occasion of Its reading
In Rome in 1894, Leo waa hailed a the
workingman' pope and a marble statue In
honor of that encyclical Is being reared by
the contributions of worktngman's societies
In the portico of the basilica of BL John
Lateran, the favorite church of the pope
in Rome. Only an outline of the encyclioal
can be given here, but sufficient to Indicate
the democratlo trend of the papal mind.
"The question of the working population
Is. the question fit the hour, and nothing
can be of higher Interest to the state than
that It be rightly decided.' "Borne reme
dies must be found, and quickly found, for
the misery which presses so heavily on the
large majority." '.'Workingmen have been
given over to' the callousness of unre
strained competition: add to this the con
tract system whereby a small number of
the very rich are able to lay a yoke, not
much to be preferred tq absolute slavery."
"Socialism has proved itself futile for all
practical purposes, since It main tenet
the community of goods Introduces only
confusion Into the commonwealth. Our
corner-stone of reform must be the Inviola
bility of private property." He then
sharply discusses "land nationalisation,"
aaylng: "The land which Is tilled with toll
and skill utterly changes; It waa wild and
barren; It 1 new fruitful. I It Junt that
the fruit of a man's sweat and labor should
be employed by another?" He then argues
that though two men may make free con
tract as to wages to be given by one to the
other, "nevertheless there Is a dictate of
nature, more Imperious and ancient than
any bargain between man and man, that
the remuneration must be enough to sup
port the wage earner In reasonable and
frugal comfort. If, through necessity, the
workman accepts harder conditions, h Is
the .victim ot Injustice." This is a very
radical and fundamental principle. It is
naturally backed up by most emphatlo con
demnation of the various devices which
disgrace civilisation, whereby the employ
er and contractor "sweat" the poor.
Trade Unions Right and Proper.
The encyclical naturally turns to the dis
cussion of the defense adopted by work
ingmen. He hold that trade unions are
natural and right, quoting scripture aptly
In defense of his position. "Among the
purposes of a workingman' society should
be to settle disputes by committees of ar
bitration; also to see that there la contin
uous work at all seasons for those who
seek It, providing mutual aid when work
and wages fall." "Let the state watch
over the societies banded for common wel
fare;" but It haa no right to meddle with
their concerns except to see that the laws
conduce to public well being and private
prosperity. The rich, he thinks, have less
need of legal help than the poor. In all
well ordered states it Is first needful to
see that wage earners are housed and
clothed and fed. The objrsct of law should
be to forestall strikes, not to suppress
them. He argues strongly for shorter hours
of labor, and for. Sunday rest. . Ill
philosophy is this: ".As a general principle
It may be laid down. that a workingman
ought to have leisure and rest In propor
tion to the wear' and tear of 'his strength;
fpr the. waste 'of strength can only be re-
dovertd. by. cassation from folL In all argu
menu the opnaiuou. iJ.prBV.-'xPresBl
or understood,. that. .there'. be allowed two..
per .seat, fom. the worn , and body.' Other
aectlona discuss child labor and woman's
Work and . wages; taxation, which Is bur
densome in all states, and needlessly bear
down the poor; also, other phases that have
been , developed In -our social struggles.
He urges arbitration aa , one great
universal, natural principle,, which
should supersede state Interference.
It 1 advisable hat reoourse be had
to societies or boards to guard tha
interests of wage earners." "Every minister
of holy religion must throw Into the con
flict all the energy of his mind and all tha
strength of his endurance."
This encyclical Is an elaboration of the
views expressed In a letter addressed to
the workingmen cf France In 1878.
Validity of Anglican Orders.
The decision of Pope Leo on the validity
of Anglican orders aroused bitter contro
versy in Great Britain, and to a lesser de
gree in the United State. The Anglican
orders, commonly known' as the ritualists
of the Church of England, led by Lord
Fairfax, had advanced so close to Rome
that , but a. few steps were necessary to
enter that communion. They contended that
their, forms were practically unchanged
since the reformation and therefore his
torlcally correct Pop Leo decided ad
versely on the claim, holding tha forms of
the orders to be Invalid, sine the Urn of
Elisabeth. The main point of the decision
was that during the reign of Edward VI
the form or ordination were protestanlsed.
Opposition to Socialism.
Aa early aa 1878 Pope Leo Issued an en
cyclical denouncing socialism a a menace
to Christianity and peace. "They attack
th right of property," he said, "a right
auctioned by the law' of nature. They
train every effort to seize upon and hold
in common all that has been Individually
acquired by title of lawful Inheritance,
through Intellectual or manual ' labor, or
economy In living." These he denounced
aa "monstrous views" and commanded the
clergy of the church to combat them every
where. "You are further aware," he aald,
addressing the clergy, "that the theories of
socialism would quickly destroy the fam
ily life, since the stability afforded by mar
riage under religious sanction once lost,
paternal authority over children and the
duties of children to parents are most
harmfully slackened." In obedience to the
Instructions of this encyclical the American
Catholio clergy have vigorously opposed
th dissemination of socialistic doctrines
among members of the church.
The latest of the pope's encyclicals.
Issued In January, 1901, was entitled "Chris
tian Democracy," and la an eloquent and
edifying treatise on man' duty to Ood, to
the state and to hi fellowman. '
The encyclical laaued during Leo pon
tlflcate are uncommonly numerous and di
versified, relating not alone to doctrinal
subjects, but treating of every subject of
pressing human interest. The literature of
his pontificate in poetry a well a proa
(s a tribute to Leo's mental strength and
versatility, and will probably stand un
rivaled In the reign of popea
Hie Polttteal Moves.
Publlo opinion In 1878 regarded the new
pope as characterised abov all thlnaa bv
a love of peace, and It waa expected that,
oopiruni irum wmi nun poasumus policy
of hi predecessor, he would speedily con
clude a compromise with the Italian gov
ernment and thus put an end to th an
tagonism between the VaUcan and th
Qulrlnal. But the world was soon un
deceived, and, In hi first encycllcaj, pro
mulgated at the Easter following his ac
cession, Pope Leo XIII unhesitatingly
maintained hi demand for th restoration
of the temporal power of the papacy, nor
did he ever recede from the position then
At th sane time, tha policy of th Ro
mas eurUa certainly underwent a develop-
mcnt In the direction of moderation, which
greatly contributed to Increasing the In
fluence of the Vatican abroad. From the
very outset, the new pontiff displayed the
greatest Interest In the social questions
sgltating the world of today and In an
enclycllcal Issued In December, 1R78, ap
pealed to th Intellectual force of Catholic
ity to conteat the propaganda of doctrine
which his holiness described as subversive
ot social order, alluding especially to the
socialists in Germany and th nihilist
movement In Russia.
The co-operation afforded by th pope to
th various government in opposing the
growing force of social democracy paved
the way for th settlement of dispute
existing between those governments and
the Vatican, both spiritual and civil au
thorities being, a It were, called upon to
merge their dfflerences and make common
cause against the common enemy. The first
great political achievement of the pope
was the settlement of the differences with
Germany which had given rise to the fam
ous kulturkampf. The rapid spread of an
archistic ' doctrine in Germany and the
attempt made upon the emperor' life In
1778 Induced Prince Bismarck to make ap
proaches to the ultramontane party to se
cure it support for hi economic
policy. Herr Falk, the famou author of
the May laws, was removed from office
and other concession were made to the
Catholic. Finally, diplomatic relations
with the Vatican were resumed and the
late Emperor Frederick, then crown prince,
signalised the restoration of an harmonious
understanding by . visiting the pop at the
Vatican. A tlll greater tribute wa paid
by Germany to hla hollneas by her selection
ot him as arbitrator in the dispute with '
Spain regarding the Caroline Islands, and
her deferential acceptance of hi decision
In favor of the weaker power.
Offered to Act as Mediator.
Hla success In this arbitration Induced
the pop to declare his readiness to act as
arbitrator in other OlsptUea for th benefit
of the whole of Europe and of Christianity.
This demand, however, met with no re
sponse, as far aa foreign governments
were concerned, and the hopes which had
been, expressed In some quarter that the
German emperor' visit to the pope in 1888
might lead to Germany advocating the
temporal claim of tha Holy See were soon J
dissipated. The pope himscu, in a letter
to the German bishop declared that ho
regarded the presence Of Efhepror William
In Rome a the guest of the Qulrlnal as a
"deplorable recognition of accomplished

Perhaps the most remarxabie leature ol
Pope Leo' policy waa the change in
the attitude which the Vatican had hitherto
preserved in regard to the French republic.
At the beginning of Pope Leo's reign the
Identification of the clergy with the royal
ist movement which gave'rls to Ganbet
ta's famous remark:. "Le elericallsm viola,
L'enr.u," had caused an antagonism to all
that savored of religion, which at one time
bid fair to lead tO'tha early separation of
church and htats Irti France. Aliv to th
danger of the e'tuaUen. the pope ought
to concilllate the ' republic by acknowledg
ing it as the' established legal form of gov
ernment and, in 1891, the late Cardinal
Lavlgerle gave expression to hi hollnes'
view oh the subject to the great aurprlae
of the Catholic pre and the perturbation
of not a few member ot th French epis

While thus engarfaa In political negotia

greatest address'? and dexterity. th
pope paid special attention to the actual-
work ot propagating the Catholio faltn and
no pontifical' reign sine the Reformation
ha witnessed such a recrudescence bt Ca

ual dominion of the Catholic church, es
pecially in English-speaking countries. A
an example of this may be cited the num.
erou pilgrimage which cam to the Etern
al City from all part of the world, for In
stance at the time of the celebration De
cember 83, 1887, of the Jubilee of the pope'
ordination to the priesthood. The Jubilee
service In St. Peter' on that occasion
wa attended by 60,000 persons. At the
mas the pope used a golden ewer and
basin presented to him by the lata Queen
Victoria and wore a tiara given by the
emperor of Germany. His holiness also
wore a magnificent diamond ring sent him
by the raltan of Turkey aa a personal mark
of hi good will and pleasure.
On March 8, 1903, the pope took part
in .the publlo celebrations In honor of the
twenty-fourth anniversary of his corona
tion by holding a "papal chapel" In the
basilica ot St. Peter's, on which occasion
he was greeted by 50,000 persons. -This
wa th first time a "chapel" had been held
In the basilica sine 1870, suoh ceremonies
having heretofore taken place In the Sis-

those present. The late pontiff on March

WASHINGTON, July 13. (Special Tele
gram.) The commissioner of Indian affairs,
in tha light of a letter Just received by the
bureau from Supervisor Wright, who haa
been in charge of the Omaha and Winne
bago reservation pending the transfer of
th agency to .the bonded superintendent,
Is not a enthusiasts to divide the reserva
tion as he was recently. Supervisor Wright
baa Informed the commissioner that the
parents of school children now attending a
boarding school at the Omaha agency are
anxious that the boarding school should be
abandoned, in other words, shut down com
pletely, because they want to place their
children in district schools. Supervisor
Wright states in his letter to the commls
sloner that the Omahas are anxious to give
their children the whit man' education
and that they ar willing to pay for such
This Is a strong contrast to the action
taken by the Sao and Fox Indians In Iowa,
where it will be recalled very great diffi
culty arose over the desire ot the authori
ties to send the children of that tribe to
district schools, the tribe In that heart of
the Hawkey state Insisting that the gov
ernment should maintain a school for the
education of Indian children of the Sao and
Foxes. According to statistics of the In
dian office It costs between $140 and 1150 to
educate each Indian child at reservation
schools. Should the department yield to
the wishes of the chief men of the Omaha
tribe and permit the chllldren to go to dis
trict school adjacent to the. teservation it
would, from a financial standpoint, be a
saving to the tribe of thousands of dollar,
for it would cost the tribe only M per
capita for each child enrolled aa against
1140 per head which the tribe Is now com
pelled to pay out ot Its annuities. This
would be a saving of at least $100 per head.
Omaha Well Equipped. .
It is freely conceded her that th Omaha
tribe I quite aa able to take care of It
own finances as any other tribe of Indians
In th country and the disposition of the
Indian office is to give the well-equipped
Indian the power of taking car of hla own
as soon as he shows sufficient Intelligence
to look after his own estate. In view of
Supervisor Wright's letter, the Indian offica
eerloualy doubts whether it would be Ad
vantageous to make the division of the
Omaha and Wlnnebagoes aa contemplated
by placing two bonded nchool superintend
ents in charge and it is expected that noth
ing will be done until further Investigation
Is made. It has been th aim ot the Indian
office to not only give the Indian a common
school education, but train him In th use
ot hi handu that he might be able to go
out In the community In which he live and
knock elbows with his white brother in a
At reservation schools as well as at non-
reservation, schools, they not only give the
Indians a common school education, but
they give him training in numberless ways.
They teach him plastering, saddlery, wagon
making, brick laying, masonry,, carpentry,
tlnamithlng, blacksmlthlng and farming;
the latter,, hewever. - It ' Is regretted to fay,
having , few eyoteee.,., All this the children

CURE FOR HAY FEVER.
Vherman MeConnrll gay Hyomei
Will Glv Relief-Sold Vnder
The season for hay fever 1 almost at
hand and many people feel that they will
be obliged to leave town in order to avoid
the sneezing, watery eyes and other annoy
ing symptom of this disagreeable sum
Sherman as McConnell wish us to an
nounce that when Hyomei is used, either
aa a preventive or cure, there will be no
hay fever. They advise th use of Hyo
mei daily for two or three week before
the usual time for the annual appearance
of hay fever. In this way the attack will
be prevented. It, however, the preventive
treatment was not started soon enough
and the disease comes on, use Hyomei
six or seven times dally and also rub
Hyomei Balm thoroughly Into the nostrils
both morning and night. This treatment
will relieve at once and give a speedy
and permanent cure.
Hyomei actually brings Into your own
home, a climate filled with ozone and
healing balsams, the same air that one
breathes at the White Mountain or other
There 1 no stomach dosing when Hy
omei I used. It is nature' own method
for curing all diseases ml the respiratory
organ and la breathed through a neat
pocket inhaler that accompanies every
outfit, so that th medicated air reaches
the minutest air cells, killing all germs
and soothing and healing the Irritated
It Is th one treatment for hay fever
where Sherman McConnell guarantee
to refund th money If It doe not glv
satisfaction. All who ar subject to hay
fever should begin its us at one o a
to prevent th disease.

that would be paralleling the government

on Saturday to adhere to the arrangement
with the Grand Trunk Paciflo to carry out
