Th.* decisive vote by which the I billian
Reichstag has revoked ih.* decrees for ihe eg*
(ralston of the JeSUltS seals the doom of th*'
remnant of Bismarck's repressive legislation.
The B-ttdeerath may block temporarily tin- re?

offer reehrtance t<> ihe policy, but with so power?
ful :i coalition as has been massed in lin* Kcichs
t;ig from the Clericalists, Fobs, Alsatians. So
cialists aad nm-! of fin* Radicals, the complete
triumph of the Catholics cannot long be de?
ferred. Tin* veteran ItateamaB, who was re?
sponsible for Germany's aggressive campaign
against the Vatican and Clericalism, will be
taunted in his old age with his deflanl declina?
tion: "We are not going to Canossa."
It ls true that Prince Bismarck when the May
lawa Wen* enacted disclaimed warfare upon the
Vatican or Catholicism. For him the political
iinjsirlance of Un* struggle into" which he en?
tered after the Vatican Council of 1H70 lay in

under obligation to submit unconditionally to
tin* laws of Ihe Stat.*. He did md assume to bc
a champion of Frotestantism. but lalx.rcil like
a loyal king's niau, who OAStm no allegiance lo
any Christian communion. With him at the
outset lt was a mattel" of State politics, not re?
ligious dogma; .iud th.* ropeg] of *.ue Law after
another, until the readmission of thc Jesuits ls
now practically secured, has been primarily a
counter-victory of political organlanttoo. R_>

The Minister whom Prince Bismarck placed
lu jiowcr In January, 1M7'_. did hie work me?
chanically without manifesting either lead
for or resentment against any religions com?
munion. He began by framing an act for re
slorlug the secular dui ra ct er .,f education in
the Prussian schis.ls. When Un* schools had
been released from religious control, be sup?
pressed the Jesuit and affiliated orders, estab?
lished courts for the nial of clerical offenders.
Uued und lui"-risoued bishops for ilsohediencg
of the new laws, cut off certain religious lu
stituiions from State revenues, made civil mar?
riage obligatory, and Inreated the governors of
provinces with authority to decide upon the
ciualifit-atious nf a bishop. Dr. Falk did his
work perhaps rnore thoroughly than Prince Bis
march expected. Ile applied the new laws im?
partially, rest lilting the authority of Protes?
tant as well ;is Catholic Clergy, and subjecting
the loyalty of the National F.x angelical Church
to rigid icsis. tlerman Proteataats turned
against him as a suspected materialist anti pro?
cured his dlaariasal from ollie.' Then his i-ode

Catholic Centre, and one repeal bili after an?
other was enacted in return for political sup?

a far more Intense ind universal Interest than
any other in which thc colleges ire rivals, and

immense publicity <?f the game ure have tm
doubt at all, To Hie gr.-at matches in this city,
with :ill ih<* ehtliumistic controversy which pie
cedes, accompanies and follows them, limy rea?
sonably be attributed in large measure the fact
that during two im.nihs of the fall terni foot?
ball completely saturates the college atmos?

faculties can most profitably give their attcii

one step go f;ir Inward bringing ihe sport willi
In safe limits. Indeed, we think that college
toxvns are the proper places for collegiate con?
tests. Boat racing, it is trite, Impanel conditions
which make lt exceptional, hut fortunately Nexv
York does nol supply them, If, furthermore,
football were subjected to this restriction lt |
would uot oulv come down to u more rat ional
status, but it xvould concurrently cease to afford
an occasion and suggest an excuse for its most
demoralizing accompaniments. For the speedie
evils of professionalism, xxith mop* ar kee jus?

taus Any denomination, aa matter whal may
be its (neology or polity, which ls animated by
such principles xviii lind all of its rights ami
liberties safeguarded by the American people
But .Monsignor Satolli and lin- Catholics xx ho
xvaul the St.iie to appropriate public money for
sectarian schools must understand that in this
they are running counter to in overwhelming
scullincut. Americana love their public school
System, IH't because Ihey believe it to.be per?
fect, for they km.xv ii is not, but because it is
wholly dix oreti front any sectarian teachings.
They would have no objection t<> the Introduc?
tion in the public sci.ls ol thc fundamental
ethical principles that lie at the base of all re
Itgtou; but they do object most seriously to the
introduction of sectarian tcaehjii-s in schools
supported by,th.* Stab*, not because such teach*
Inga are aeess-sarily untrue, bul beoauaw they
are sectarian, ami therefore lu conllict xxith Ihe
spirit of American Institutions', Roman cath?
olics often say that this attitude is due to the
prejudice against their church; bm this is md
so. lt would be just as strong If the plea foi*
Stale aid Weft made by Episcopalians or
Lutherans who also believe in parochial schools.
The people know that thc recognition of the
principle would give io every denomination
tin* right to claim ii share of the public money
for education, and the result would be the
destruction of the public school syatein, which,
with all Its faults, has been, and lu, the bul**
warta of American institutions.
Moreover, .Monsignor SatolH's assertion that a
Catholic iilucHtlon in the surest safeguard of
the Constitution and the best guide of the Re?
public tn civil progress is a piece of pur** as
sumption. We would not say a word in crit?
icism of Catholic education; nor do we forget
lin* exalted types of goodness that hilve been
produced under its intliicnce. But, as a matter
of fact, this Nation was bom, and lum achieved
all its triumphs tims far, under an educational
system distinctlv non -Catholic. With the evi?
dences of moral and religious progress around
us to-day which owe their inspiration to the
non Catholic peoples xvho founded and reared
Hie Ucpubiie. it is ii little surprising to be told
iimi our welfare ia a Nation now depends on
our support of purely Catholic schools. That is
a proposition, we venture to say, that ii large
majority of intelligent American Roman Cath?
olics xvoulil earnestly deny.
Monsignor Satolli luis shown himself to pos?
sess such an appreciation of American Ideas
in his other utterances thal we hope he
xviii soon see his mistake in lending counte?
nance to the principle of Stitte aid foi' sectarian
schools. Ni* one xviii object if OW Unman
Catholic felloXX-citiZellS OOUtlnUe to believe ill
Iheir parochial schools. It ls their right to
think tli.it (hey aro better than the public
schools; but that right entail! upon them the
duty of supporting their schools. Any attempt
on their part to load that work on the public
iit liirge will h.- vigorously restated by the
people of this country.
AN ABC HIST WAEPAEE
The recent outbreak of Anarchist .mirages in
Spain iind elsewhere on tin* Continent rentiers
tia* Paris letter OO another page timely and
Important. lt contains a most luminous expoal
tlon of tin* rise and progress of Anarchy fis a
system of organized warfare upon civilized so
ciety. This analysis <<f in extreme theory of
individualism, which makes every niau the
natural and retentions enemy of every form of
authority, is supplemented by estimates <>f the
real or professed strength of the Anarchists
and by detailed information respecting their
chief recruiting places and centres of activity.
Ihe fact ihiit Loudon, Paris, New-York and
Chicago are tin* recognized lmadiniari.Ts of the
movement Indicates that governmenl by tim
people is its distasteful to the fheretic;! 1 Anar?
chist as government hy a Russian Autocrat ol?
by tin- military monarchs of Bttrope. Public
authority is the Caesar to xx'le.m no tribute is
to be rendered. Tho Anarchist is m. respecter
of governments, whatever may be their order
of representation. Intelligence or progpss.
rho statement that there ara in Europa and
America 80,000 Anarchists, xvho believe in
bomb-throwing as a process of social rc gc nen
lion, would be more alarming If the underly?
ing principle of this under-world movement
\\'T" nol antagonistic to organization. Those
who abhor authority disarm themselves. Any
preconcerted ami deliberate campaign against
Hie social and political order of the world is
Impracticable whVn tbe conspirators by their
own gospel of individualism an* prohibited
from recognising the authority of an Interna?
tional congress or of their own secret society.
lt is fortunate, perhaps, thai their resources as
au army of destruction ira restricted ind parn
Ivy...I by this Inherent hick of organization, ll
is not an easy matter for Governmental to atb.pt
defensive measures against them m?r t*> include
climes not anally differentiated from political
offences in extradition print iee. Communism,
if tin* means employed for accomplishing its
? ?mis were equally revolutionary, would be far
more dangerous than Anarchy, because its so
rial pi'opngamln xvould promote combination
New York is described In Prance as one of
lin* working centres of tbe Anarchists, xvliere
they an* said to have twenty-two imxvspapers.
This is dearly au exaggeration of their literary
activity. The Ne xv York Anarchists are m.t g

police anrvellbtnce. The same is true ..f Pon?

The only effective methods <>f disarming ami
Intimidating theae enemies ..f law ind society
gre those of employing au eltlcient police force
to watch th.-iu and of executing the law re?
lentlessly against them ieheuever they commit
i lillies. London ami New-York can afford to
despise ihe Anarchist. Paris ami Chicago ap?
