Synopsis of the Pope's Forthcoming Encyclical. The Position of the Church Defined— Socialism Attacked—State Interference Is Advocated. THE SOCIAL PROBLEM DISCUSSED. EojiE, May 15.—The following- is a resume of the pope's encyclical on the labor question—the most important document that has emanated from the Vatican in recent years. The treatise in its Latin form consists of fifty-seven quarto pag-es: After a short introduction, in which the Importance ana difficulty of the labor question Is relerred to, and the imperative demand for its speedy solution noted the socialistic portion is stated and carefully reviewed argument atively, the conclusion belnp reached that the solution implied in the abolition of private property and the eubstitutlon of common ownership therefor is delusive and untenable. The reasoning of his holiness does not diner sufficiently from that employed by the recognized authorities on tha anti-socialistic side to merit special citation, He has evidently studied the subject thoroughly, and has consulted the leading writers of all countries. His holiness then presents tha alternative solution held out by the church, its doctrine and teachings. He admits that according to these teachings themselves various principles and elements not strictly religious in essence must contribute to the solution. First, however, and above all is the church, without which ail else is ineffectual. At this point his holiness recalls the Gospel teaching In regard to the relations to be observed among workmen toward each other and by workmen and employers toward one another. Ho points out the fact that all that Is necessary for the maintenance of harmonious relations between masters ucd men is the carrying out of the simple injunctions of Scripture. The observance of the Christian spirit as in- solution. The fulfillment of the mutual obligations of Justice, resulting in friendly and even brotherly union between employer and employed, is not only practicable but In a worldly sense beneficial to both interests. It is the teaching of Christ that all men must live together in unity as the members of one family. The church not only keeps this teaching in mind but earnestly strives to bring it into actual practice, and dons its utmost to bring the working classef all the moral and material helps which can be provided for their advantage. The activity of the church In charitable performance Is dwelt upon as one Instance" of the practical carrying out of the Christian spirit of mutual aid. Christ is declared to be ever living in the church. The encyclical then discusses the province of the state in the treatment of tho labor o.ucs- tion. Broadly it is laid down that it is necessary for the state to do its part toward benefiting the workmen. The treatment of this theme shows a leaning toward the famous' dictum of Cardinal Manning. that the state stands in tl>e position of guaranteeing to tho citizen cither a living or an opportunity to malce a living. There is also evidence that his holiness is lu sympathy to a marked degree with the position taken by Cardinal Gibbons In regard to the rights of labor. Descending to particulars, the document maintains that the state not only has the right but is Imposed with the duty to interfere between parties whenever its intervention becomes necessary in order to carry out ita function of protecting the common rights of all and tho equitable general welfare. In elucidating this point the encyclical declares that one of tho chief objects for which the protective action of tho state is needed Is the protoc- tion of private property, the preservation of public tranqillity and the securing of the advantage of workmen, whether mental or physical. The encyclical passes on to the consideration of the various questions bearing on the necessity of Sabbath rest, recreation in the shape of festivals, the utility of strikes, the proper adjustment of wages, etc. The question of the hours of labor in considered, with reference to the nature of the work, the age and sex of tho worker, ana lastly, but not least, with relation to the effect of longer or shorter stints upon the workers. The importance of a proper use of leisure time is dwelt upon, and the greatest stress is laid upon ths benefits to be derived from the establishment among the workingmen of institutes, societies for mutual aid, funds for the succor of those who meet with misfortune or sickness, those disaDled by accident, etc. Various kinds ol patronage in the interest of charity are suggested, and the protection and welfare of children and youth is enjoined. The field ot bancfit offered by the possibility of syndicates, companies, and abovu all of corporations among tha workingmen is treated of, and such cooperative effort Is spoken ol M preeminently suited to tho altered conditions of these times. The state, while leaving dua freedom to all, ought to favor and encourage such davelopments, and sustain the associations so formed. A good deal of space is devoted to these unions, upon which his holiness seems to build great hopes of good results. Suggestions are made as to the best methods of forming them, and the fundamental principles which ought to ROTera them arc enunciated. They should above all be animated by the spirit of Christ, the spirit of brotherly love and unity. Much (rood has already been done by such organizations, and his holiness urges the enlargement and extension of the principle as the most hopeful step toward uplifting the laborer. The encyclical concludes with words of earnest exhortation to all interested in the labor question to observe the divine law as announced in the Scriptures, each determining to fulfill readily and without delay the duty lying upon him »s employer 01 as workman. The papal encyclical is variously commented -upon, but generally with favor, as being- decidedly liberal in ideas and in accord with the recent, reported utterances of the pope in the same direction. / Lincoln May Katmt the Cabinet. -.-.'•• NEW YOBK, May 15.—A special to the Becorder from Washington says theije Is a strong rumor 'about the war department that Secretary Proctor's, appointment or election to -the senate in place of Senator Edmunds being assured, Minister Lincoln will be recalled from London to take the cabinet place.
