THE MTHOLICS & THE SCHOOLS.
Editou Bulletin : Last Friday's
" Advertiser" has an article penned
by A ProtestantLayman in reference
to my conynunicntion in the Bulle
tin of the 19th inst. The writer has
read iny article with attention and I
am greatly pleased with his gentle
way of presenting his views, though
they differ f ro'm mine. Therefore
I take pleasure in discussing with
him the subject of religious teaching
in the public schools with the same
honest desire that animates him, to
aid in shedding light upon a matter
of the highest importance.
If P. Layman will read Dr.
Hyde's article on the Kohala corres
pondence, he will allow that my
criticism was not without founda
tion. Should I have misunderstood
the IDoctor's idea, it was certainly
in perfect good faith and it would
make no material difference in the
main argument, for it was not tho
person of Dr. Jlyde or anybody else
I aimed at ; I'wished to discuss a
question a principle. The article
of the Ucv. gentleman who appears
in the papers as one of the piomi
nent representatives of the largest
Protestant sect in Honolulu deter
mined merely the form of my an
swer, which is the application of
very old principles to the actual
condition of these Islands. Far
from introducing extraneous mat
ters for the purpose of confusing the
question, I desire, on the contrary,
to throw the broadest light possible
on the main question which as such
is necessarily connected with other
questions. There is something to be
reformed in the whole system of
Protestant Layman understands
well my position, which is that of
the Catholic Church generally. "Ve
ask for the Catholic children "in
struction in the distinctive doctrines
of the Catholic Church, and in the
duties which that church, and that
church only, holds to be incumbent
on its members. Instruction in the
fundamental doctrines which arc
held in general by all Christians,
both Catholic and Protestant, would
not be accepted as satisfactory."
I have already stated in my argu
mentation against Dr. Hyde that
there are many points of agreement
between Catholics and Protestants
in theological doctrines and nearly
all the practical duties of life. P.
Layman quotes a considerable num
ber of articles as being equally ac
cepted by both parties. Now, allow
me to give a few reasons why in
struction in those, excluding specific
Catholic doctrine, is not, and cannot
be satisfactory to Catholics.
1. "We must expect to have many
Protestant teachers who would not
believe, much less teach, the whole
doctrinal programme of our pious
2. Suppose a. Protestant teacher
be a strong believer in all those doc
trines, his leaching would be un
avoidably colored by his own pre
judices against what he himself
would regard as superstition or
abomination. Now, would he, as an
honest and earnest Protestant, be
able to refrain from warning his
pupils against Popish errors?
3. P. Layman numbers among
the points of agreemonftho great sa
craments of Baptism and the Lord's
Supper." But there is an immense
difference, especially about tho
4. Marriage being tho keystone
of Christian society, wo differ essen
tially on the divorce question.
5. Let us suppose a teacher
highly learned and so delicate in his
sense of justice that he utters no
word contrary to the Catholic faith.
But, what guarantee have tho chil
dren and their parents that he really
teaches tho genuine Catholic doc
trine? For tho Catholics a teacher
of religion roust have n mission, not
from the secular or lay Board of
Education, but from the church
C. P. Layman agrees with me in
admitting tho universal sinfulness of
men . the ierip.mnt.inn liv .Tnuiia
Christ and the salvation by his mer
its. But there remains an essential
question on which Catholics and
Protestants widely differ, I mean
tho practical side of the question.
Under what conditions and hy what
means are the merits of Christ ap
plied to the individual man for his
7. It ia not euflicient to have a
right notion of the creed j children
need besides the theoretical instruc
tion also a practical training for their
religious and moral duties. Among
other important mailers wo want
them to know tho meaning, etc., of
tho divine service (celebrated in
8. The doctrines pointed out by
P. Layman as essential scorn to be
gonerally BUlllcumt for Protestnnts.
But, I beg to state that, for a Catho
lic, it is far from being the case.
My honest opponent will certainly
deny the intention of giving the
Catholic children in the Government
schools a. Protestant training but
such is nevertheless the case. The
system is such, that as far as the
school is concerned, Catholic chil
dren will practically become Protes
tants of inferior quality, and against
the will of their parents. I call tho
system that produces buch results
My friend seems to have overlook
ed my statement that strictly de
nominational schools in tins king
dom are practicable in but few cases.
I proposed a practical remedy against
the injustico with which the system
actually treats Catholic children, by
recommending to the Board of Edu
cation holding tho power, that they
be pleased to favor and materially
assist tho independent schools which
answer tho just demands of the par
ents. In my view, which 'is more
than ni' own private opinion, the
parents not the Stale have the
first duty and the first right to pro
vide for the education of their chil
dren. The State comes in as an as
sistant in case of necessit.
P. Layman would like me to bo
more liberal in regard to religious
instruction in schools. We do not
agree about the term liberal. I do
not think it liberal to have a short
creed and impose it upon your re
luctant neighbor, or to act on princi
ples which my conscience forbid. 1
do not ask the privilege of imposing
my religious views on others to the
exclusion of their rights. Wuat l
do ask is mere justice and it will not
interfere with anybody's conscience.
P. Layman is not so liberal since he
proposes a general system which is
against the conscience of a consider
able minority of the tax-paying
population. If it wet e adopted by
the Board of Education, it would be
an abuse of power of the victorious
majority crushing the sacred rights
of thehelplcss minority nothing
new but the old savage rule of

A MAUI LETTER.
Duah Bulletin: Since writing
my last letter signed "Dixie," I
find you have another correspondent
writing under the same signature.
Now I am certain I neither wish
ed to steal the other fellow's thun
der nor his nom-dc;plume, so can
only apologise and promise not to
do so any more. Maui is again to
tho fiont in the way of rains.
Glorious, refreshing showers are
fallinc almost daily, to the ovident
delight of both man and beast.
Everything looks green, even to
some of us poor fellows who have
failed to receive government billets.
All plantation prospects are more
than good ; but I think the great
Spreckclsvillc plantation merits spe
1 think the icported yield for last
year was fourteen thousand tons,
and present indications promise even
better for this year.
Honor to whom honor is due ; and
to Mr. Monison, ably assisted by
his chief overseer, Mr. "Wesley Mar
shall, is due the credit of pulling
this "big elephant," as it has been
called, out of the financial mud.
Friend Walsh of Paia has taken
hi3 departure from the kingdom,
lie goes to the "Hub," I think to
join the great army of liars, (please
excuso a bad pen), lawyers, I mean.
Well, our's is the loss and his the
gain: for lawyers don't generally
lose much, unless it be an occasion
ally case for a client. Aloha, friend
Walsh, we hope to hear good reports
Mr. Henry Baldwin has returned
from his Eastern trip. The many
greetings he received were hearty
and sincere. Socially this gentle
man has many friends ; and politic
ally his record in the Legislature
has caused his enemies there, to re
gard him as a giant in the cause of
Reform. Should Mr. B. desire
to go again to tho Legislature he
has only to express a wish ' to that
effect, and tho people of this district
will send him by a unanimous vote.
We are glad to learn that Mr. W.
It. Castle is soon coming to our dis
trict for a few weeks' vacation. lie
will make his head-quarters, I am
told, on Haleakala Ranch. Well
and Avisely chosen, Mr. Castle. Ma
kawao is a great natural sanitarium ;
and if its splendid climate and tho
glorious breezes from "old Halea
kala" do not brace you up for future
great efforts in the Chinese ques
tion, I will give you leave to call me

you may find ample opportunity to
build not air-castles, but good re
form structures that wilt stand firm
mid strong in the next crusade of
honest men, against wrong and op
pression. This Chinese question is
a queuevious one, and we are per
fectly willing to leave it in tho
hands of such men as Castle, Thurs

Reform, knowing wo will not provo

Mr. 0. B. Miles, died a few days
since. Tho exact cause of his death
is not known. Mr. Miles feels very
keenly the death of tho beautiful J
animal, Ui6' ho takes it in his usual
quiet manner; simply remarking,
"The old fellow's time had come."
We hopo the immense hay crop Mr.
Miles is certain of making may con

Tfie Literary Club held its
monthly meeting n few evenings
since, nt tho rcsldcnco of Mr.
Crooks. The writer was not pre
sent, but is informed that it was by
no means a Crook-cd affair. Mr.
and Mrs. Crooks, with their charm
ing daughters, were untiring in their
efforts to please their many friends,
and sufllcc to say, tho whole affair
was a grand success.
What is the Bulletin's idea of
the Presidential race? I think it is
"Nip-and-Tuck," with "Nip" a lit
