THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, IHIDAT, JULT 12, 1889.
ItELIGION IN SCHOOL.
A Discussion of tho Subject by Car
dinal Gibbons and Others.
SUCH INSTRUCTION IS NECESSARY,
According to the Tiews Advanced by the
BOJIE BATHER DIFFERENT OPINIONS.
One Writer asserts That Ho Doctrine cf Any Kind
Should be Tolersled.
Cardinal Gibbons and a number of otber
eminent individuals hare written papers as
to the expediency of religious instruction in
the public schools. The opinions are widely
various, and are defended with vigor and
"Washington, July 1L Public Opin
ion, the eclectic journal of "Washington,
will to-morrow (Friday) publish papers
from the pens of Cardinal Gibbons, Rev.
Dr. Thomas Hill, ex-President of Harvard
University; Rev. Dr. Minot J. Savage, of
Boston, and Prof. "W. T. Harris, editor of
the Journal o Speculative Philosophy, on
this question : "Is Religious Instruction in
the Public Schools Expedient? If so, "What
Should be Its Character and Limitations?"
Cardinal Gibbons says that "an educa
tion that improves the mind and memory to
the neglect of moral and religious training
is at best but an imperfect and defective
system. It is most desirable that our youth
should be made acquainted with the history
of our country, its origin and principles of
its government, and with the eminent men
who have served it by their statesmanship
THE GREATER NEED.
"But it is not enough for children to have
a secular education; they must receive
a religious training. Religious knowl
edge is as far above human science as the
soul is above the body, as heaven is above
earth, as eternity is above time. By secu
lar education we improve the mind; by re
ligious training we direct the heart. The
religious and secular education of our chil
dren canpot be divorced from each other
without inflicting a fatal wound upon the
soul; they must go hand in hand, otherwise
their education is shallow and fragmentary
a curse instead or a blessing. iety,
says the Cardinal, "is not to be
put on for State occasions, but is to be ex
hibited in our conduct at all times. Our
youth must put in practice every day the
commandment of God as well as the rules
of arithmetic lhen,"he asks, "how can they
familiarize themselves with these sacred
duties if they are not daily inculcated? The
catechetical instructions given once a week
in our Sundav schools are insufficient to
supply the religious wants of our children.
It is 'important that they should breathe
every day a healthy
in schools in which not only is the mind
enlightened, but the seeds of Christian
faith, piety and sound morality are nour
ished and invigorated. The combination of
religious and secular education is easily ac
complished in denominational schools. To
what extent religion may be brought in the
public schools without infringing the rights
and wounding the conscience of some of the
pupils is a grave problem beset with difficul
ties, and very hard to be solved, inasmuch
as those schools are usually attended by
children belonging to the various Christian
denominations, by Hebrews also, and even
by those who profess no religion whatever."
The Rev. Dr. Hill says that public
schools with compulsory attendance are an
essential adjunct of a republican eovern-
ment,and that the republic is pound to
superintend with care the education of the
children. And whatever may be the theo
retical opinion of religion and morals, it is
practically true that children can be kept
pure, truthful and honorable in bo way so
effectually as by cultivating their natural
reverent sense of religious sanctions.
He concludes, therefore, that religious
instruction is more than expedient; it is de
manded as a political necessity. But it
must not be given by text books, lectures or
recitations. It must be giren incidentally,
first by the selection of teachers of good
character and good sense, then by careful
selection of wholesome reading, and finally
by a daily brief religious exercise, at which
a passage from the Bible shall be read, a
prayer recited and, perhaps, a hymn sung;
But great care should be taken that there
be nothing in the service to which any rea
sonable parent could object. The State, he
says, does not undertake to define Chris
tianity or to decide upon the true interpre
tation of the Scriptures; but assumes Chris
tianity as part of the common law ot the
"The Government exists for the public -good,"
he says, "and it is the people alone
who have the power to decide what is for
their good. The State must for its own cake
make good morals and good manners the
first and highest aim in publio education."
"With regard to private schools. Dr. Hill
believes it the duty of the State to inspect
them, and require that the education given
therein shall be such as to prepare the
pupils for the duties of citizenship. The
State should not admit that education in the
parochial schools of a denomination ii a
political equivalent for a pnblic education.
Least ol all is a Catholic parochial school
capable oi fulfilling the political ends of a
good education, since in them is not only
that partial and distorted view of history,
but limitation of the rignt of private judg
ment, which must partly unfit the pupil for
considering qnestions of public policy with
unbiased mind. Catholic education is
favorable to the development of diplomatists
and political managers, but it tends to unfit
a man for frank and, honest public discus
sion. The aim of every lover of our country and
its liberties should therefore be to render
the public schools so manifestly superior,
morally and intellectually, to a private
school, as to draw all the children into
JUSTICE FOB ALL.
Dr. Savage argues as follows: "In the
case of those who believe that the salvation
of their children's souls is at stake, there
can not be a more odious tyranny than to
compel them to submit to a teaching that,
to their minds, entails such horrible conse
quences. And in the case of those who do
not believe that endless welfare of their
children is at stake, compelling them to
submit to the teaching of a religion they
don't believe in, is a waste of time,
and subjects them to the influence of what
is regarded as hurtful superstitions, which
hinder true learning, impart false theories
of life and duty, and so interfere seriously
with the happiness and progress of this
world, if not ot the next. In either case,
then, it is a tyranny."
Dr. Savage concludes that the pnblie
school, "supported bv the equal taxation of
people of all beliefs, exists and has a right
to exist simply and solely for the sake of
such education as fits for citizenship, and so
is for the public good. The Church and the
home give ample scope for all individual
peculiarities of belief or theory. The public
school is for the people and for all the peo
ple. Let it be kept true to its own high and
THINKS IT INEXPEDIENT.
Prof. "W. T. Harris says: "It se'ems to me
that religious instruction in the publio
schools is inexpedient on the ground that
they are for all citizens, whatever their re
ligious belief or no belief. It is the convic
tion of the average American citizen that
rights of private conscience must be re
spected, and that Cnurch and State must be
entirely separate. If the State undertakes
to regulate religious matters confusion oc
curs. In parochial schools the influence of
the dogmatic tone creeps into the secular"
recitations and drives out a desirable critical
alertness and investigating spirit and stifles
Mr. Harris cites the "infidelity" In Ger
many as an argument against religion in the
THE KEW IRISH LEAGUE.
It Will be modeled Closely After the British
Tradr Unions, and Will be Able to
Dely Bnlfonr The Tories Are
In nSlnte of Consternation.
IBT CAIILE TO TUB DISPATCH. I
London, July 11. Some weeks ago
Smith Barry, with the knowledge and ap
proval of Balfour, formed a syndicate of
Irish and English landlords, the avowed ob
ject of which was to compel tenants to pay
rents. Since then the Irish leaders have
had several anxious consultations as to the
best means of protecting tenants against
this new and formidable danger. This
morning Mr. Parnell announces that he and
his colleagues have, with the fullest sense
of their responsibility, resolved to establish
a Tenants' Defense " League, and "William
O'Brien made a similar announcement last
evening at a big meeting in Tipperary,
amid a scene of tremendous enthusiasm.
The new league will be openly inaugu
rated by a public conference which will be
attended by every member of the Irish
partv and representative men from all parts
of Ireland. The league will be modeled
as closely as possible on lines of British
trades unions. It will be in every respect
as legal as those formidable organizations,
and it will be difficult for the Government
to suppress it without unblushingly throw
ing to the winds every shred of constitu
tionalism in Ireland. The movement is the
most important inaugurated since the es
tablishment of the Land League in 1879.
It has already created a veritable panic in
the landlord camp, and their organ, the
Dublin Express, weeps copiously this morn
ing, predicting all manner of dreadful
things, including the extermination of the
Irish people and the handing over of the
country to military colonists from England.
The landlords are gaspinc at the possibil
ity of a general strike against rent, and the
Tories predict turmoil and bloodshed during
the coming winter, but the new league will
be strong enough to prevent crime and will
afford Balfour no reasonable excuse for pro
claiming martial law in order to fight it.
That is what the Tories are urging the Gov
ernment to do,and it enables one to estimate
the extent of their fears.

The Cnnse of a BlTsterlons Sinking: on the
Ft. Wayne Hood.
IEFXCIAX. TELIOEAM TO TUX DISPATCH. 1
Beavek Palls, Pa., July 11. For some
time past it has been noticed that the track
of theFt. Wayne Railroad, at a "barge fill,"
at Wallace run, a few miles north of bere,
has been sinking. More ballast was put un
der the rails,Jut the track still continued
to sink. This morning the cause of the
sinking was made plain, however, when the
entire north side of the enbankment caved
in and a great volume of smoke and flames
It was then discovered that by some means
the old ties and slack, which had been used
in making the "fill," had caught fire, and
for months, probably, has been burning,
until at last it reached the surface, and then
the whole affair gave way. As the embank
ment is a very huge affair, it will take a
long while to repair it All trains will run
over the New Castle and New Brighton
branch until the repairs are completed.

The Soldiers' Orphan School nt That Place
Will be Continued. ,
ITniontown, July 11. The committee
investigating the Soldiers Orphans' schools
were well pleased with the situation at the
Unionvillr school, and commended the ex
cellent state of repair and preservation of
the buildings, and were, particularly de
lighted with the bathing facilities. They
had nothing but words of commendation for
the management, and Senator Gobin told
Superintendent Waters, when leaving, to
Erocnre return tickets for his pupils when
e dismisses them this summer, and also to
get ready to receive 120 pupils from the
Mercer school when he reopens in Septem
ber, and as many more as he can take.
It has been finally decided to discontinue
the Mercer school, and its 218 pupils will
be scattered BO to Butler, 120 to TJnion
ville, the otber 48 not decided on. Union
villa now has about 200 children.

New Yobk, July 1L The Railroad Gazette
of July 12 will publish a table of new railroad
construction for tbe first halt ot 1889. The
table shows 1,110 miles of new main line track
