SO CHANGE OF FRONT.
Father Tobin Discusses the Effect of
!!gr. Satolli's Mission.
SETTLING AN OLD CONTROVERSY.
k Denial That the FuMie School System
lias Been Indorse!
CHURCH LEGISLATION TJXCHAKGED
The address of Moniignor Satolli, the
Papal delegate to the conference of Arch
bishops in New York, has occasioned much
local discussion on the attitude of the
Church toward the public school. Yester
day moraine Father F. L. Tobin, of St.
Mary's Church, Forty-sixth street, spoke to
his congregation on the subject He said:
"Much has been said and written about
the resolutions passed by the Archbishops
at the conference lately held by them in
Kevr York, and the address delirered on the
same occasion by Mgr. Satolli, the Papal
delegate. The meaning of those resolutions
and of that address has been generally mis
understood and misrepresented not pur
posely misrepresented but through ignor
ance of the legislation of the Church
concerning Catholic edueation in this
country. Tne result of the Archbishops'
deliberations is hailed by many as a change
of front on the part of the Holy See towards
the public schools; it is interpreted by some
to mean a Tirtual approval of the public
school system. Xow this, I claim, is a mis
take a natural and pardonable mistake, to
be sure but none the less a mistake. There
is no new feature in the Archbishop's rese
ctions or the Papal delegate's address.
Church Legislation Unchanged.
"The legislation of the Church concerning
Catholic education and the public school is
just what it was before I shall now en
dearer to prove this assertion by examining
the Archbishops' declarations and the Mon
eignor's address. The iollowing are the
1. To promote the- erection ot Catholic
schools, so tiiat there may he accommoda
tion in tdem. if possible, lornll our Catholic
children, according to the decrees of the
Plenary Council of Baltimoie and the de
cision or the Holy Sen.
2. That as to children who at present do
not attend Catholic schools, w direct. In
addition, that provision be made foi Sun
day schools, and also by instruction on
somo other day or daj s of the w eek, and by
urging Catholic parents to teach their chil
dren the catholic doctrine at tuelr home.
Sunday and week-day schools should be
antfer the direct snpervlsio 1 of the clersy,
aided by Intelligent lay teachers, and, wlien
possible, by the members or the religious
"These provisions contain nothing new.
The instruction of the Congregation of
Propaganda, approved by the Holy See and
addressed in 1875 to the bishops of the
United States, treating of those Catholio
children who are compelled to attend pub
lic schools, contains the following:
Parish priests and missionaries in the
United States should spare no
pains to clve (such cnildren) thorough, cate
Religions Instruction for Scholars.
"And the Second Plenary Council of Bal
timore, held in 1868, enacted this decree:
Pastors should assemble the boys and girls
(who attend public schools) on Sundays and
other least daj s, and sometimes even more
frequently, in order to teach them, with care
and diligence, the elements of Christian
"The following card from Archbishop
Evan speaks for itself, and lays the logic
which some writer had called up: 'Several
newspapers contain articles of a somewhat
sensational character, in which they affect
to discern something new and startling in
the report of the Archbishops by reading
between the lines. As I wrote the report,
I beg to state that is only necessary to read
along the lines to understand it. As the
Archbishops met after consultation with
be Bishops, the unanimous adoption of
these resolutions is not a triumph for any
party, but lor the entire united hierarchy
of the country.'
Monslgnor Satolli's Mission.
"It strikes me that undue importance
has been attached to the utterances of Mgr.
Satolli. He has been sent to this country,
not to change the existing laws of the
church or to trame new ones, but to confer
with the Archbishops and to report to the
Holy See. He did not even preside at the
sessions. "What may be dons in the future,
I do not pretend ro say; but so far he has
only made suggestions The results of the
conference are to be found in the Arch
bishops' report, not in the En
voy's speech. But even that speech
contains nothing novel, except
ifit be an exception a recommendation
that the bishop and the members of the
Public School Board enter into an agree
ment wherebv the latter will allow the
Catholic child'ren to be assembled during
free time and taught the catechism. Some
writers for the press seem to have jumped
at the conclusion that this and the plans
suggested by Mgr. Satolli are put forward
as substitutes for our parochial schools. A
careful reading of the document would have
prevented any intelligent person from mak
ing so gross an error. They are simply
methods of securing the necessary religious
instruction for those Catholic children who
do not go to Oamolic schools.
Certain Conditions to Be Observed.
"It is true that be states it is lawful for
Catholic parents to send their children to
those (the public) schools, but mark the
conditions 'It it be clear that in a given
locality the above named dangers to
faith and morals disappear.' And
what are the above-named dangers? The
first mentioned is as follows: 'Because in
the public schools a purely secular educa
tion is given, inasmuch as it excludes all
teaching of religion.' Assuredly, if it were
clear that these" dangers were removed, no
Catholic, clerical or lay, would find fault
with the public schools.
"One point more. The Papal delegate
tays the pastor should not show less love
tor those who attend public schools than
for the other children ot his flock. Cer
tainly not. Just as the Good Shepherd
showed more love for the stray sheep than
for the 99 within the fold; just as the physi
cian pays more attention to the critical
cases than to the less serious ones; so the
Catholic pastor will seek and show more
solicitude for the little ones of his flock
who attend public schools than for those
who enjoy the advantages of Catholic edu
cation. The Church and the Public School.
"To sum up, the attitude of the Church
toward the public school system is not
changed. Patrons are still required, and
will still be required, to maintain parochial
schools wherever It is possible to do so.
The faithful will still be exhorted to sup
port them; and parents will still be urged
to have their children taught in them
or other Catholic institutions, and not only
urged, but strictly required, unless the
bishop of the diocese, lor reasons ot which
ne is the judge, permits them to do other-
"Perhaps von will ask, if the legislation
of the Church still remain the same, why
was this meeting held by the Archbishops?
Why was Mgr. Satolli directed to be pres
ent? You know that some of our highest
Church dignitaries differed on some points
connected with the question ot education.
Those differences gave rise to a controversy
which threatened to impair seriously the
concert with which the hierarchy had al
ways acted on that important subject
Ending an Unseemly Controversy.
"The discussion was not edifying to the
laity, who were surprised to find divided
counsels among their spiritual puides. To
Dnt an end to the unseemly controversy,
the Pope directed the Archbishops to meet
ind consider the questions at issue, and
Her. Satolli to represent him at the con
lerence. The Holy Father's plan proved
lucceisfnt His EaToy's speech was a
masterpiece of adroitness. In his bland,
diplomatic manner, with his smooth, Italian
tongue, Mer. Satolli said much that pleased
both parties and nothing that could offend
either. The resolutions that I have quoted
were adopted unanimously by the Arch
bishops, and the conference adjourned,
leaving the legislation of the Church pre
cisely as it was before.
"If in the future the public school sys
tem should be so modified as to make proper
provision for the religious instruction of
Catholic pupils, the laws of the Church
will no doubt be modified to meet the
change in that system." x

A SERYIGE OF MUSIC.
Auspicious Opening of a Series to Bo
Given in Calvary Church.
ORGAN AND A FULL ORCHESTRA
Supplement the Voices of a Greatly
MAKING RELIGIOUS MUSIC POPULAR
Tne first of a series of special musical
services was given at Calvary Episcopal
Church yesterday afternoon. The church
was filled to overflowing, and probably
more than 1,200 people, among whom the
ladies were slightly -in the majority, en
joyed the impressive and beautiful service
which was rendered by a full choir and
organ supplemented by a goodly number of
stringed instruments and French horns.
Mr. Carl Better was organist and musical
director, and the regular Calvary Church
choir had been strengthened so that it in
cluded these ladies and gentlemen: Miss
Sarah C. Vogel, Miss Leonora S. Dickson,
Miss Frances S. King, Miss Aurelia Eeine
mann, Miss Amanda Vierheller, Mrs. Chal
mers, Mrs. Woodbridge, Miss Edith Nor
ton, Miss Minnie A LeonarJ, Miss Chal
mers, Miss, Margaret P. Eraser, Miss Julia
Beach, Miss Oliye Beach, Mr. Henry
Gerding, Mr. Edward E. Kinehart, Jr., Mr.
William H. Morrison, Mr. Joe Gladden,
Mr. George Brown, Mr. "W. W. Ramsey,
Mr. J. J. Miller, Mr. Baymond Curtis, Mr.
John Muir, Mr. Frank Benbow, Mr. Daniel
Bullock and Mr. Alex. C. Eraser, Libra
rian. Musical Features of the Service.
The service consisted of a portion of the
eveuing prayer with these musical features:
A voluntary by the stringed instruments
and organ by Handel; offertory, air in D,
by Bach, and grand mass in F by .Schubert,
rendered by the choir and orchestra, in
cluding, of course, the organ. The superb
music of the mass was admirably treated,
the religious as well as the artistic purpose
being duly emphasize I. The Gloria in
Ercelsls and the Credo, presenting many
difficulties as well as beauties, were inter
preted with admirably graduated feeling
and power. The strings especially strength
ened the organ in some ot the passages,
and the happy alliance of all the elements,
vocal .and instrumental, called attention
once more in the most forcible manner to
the innate grandeur ot the English version
of the old Latin mass, which the authors
of the Book of Common Prayer hate given
Mr. Better after the service was inclined
to apologize for shortcomings, for which, if
they existed, and to the layman they were
not apparent, the difficulty of getting a
special choir and orchestra together for re
hearsal were ample excuse. It is safe to
sav that everyone in the church echoed the
approval and gratitude expres'sed by the
rector of Calvarv after the service to Mr.
The First of the Series.
The service yesterday was the first of a
series to be given at Calvary Church during
the coming year. Three services in a man
ner similar" to yesterday's have been per
formed at Calvary at intervals recently, but
the work is now' organized on a permanent
basis, and naturally the choir and
orchestra will gather strength at each step.
Musical critics in the congregation yester
dav expressed great satisfaction witli the
result, and the new undertaking has cer
tainly made an excellent beginning. The
following is the programme tor the luture:
December 11, mass in F, Schubert; Janu
ary 8, Messiah, parti, Handel: February
12, Christ on the Mount of Olives, Bee
thoven; March 12, Stabat Mater, Eossini;
April 16, St Cecilia mass, Gounod; May 14,
Ohristus (unfinished oratorio) and Lauda
Sion, Mendelssohn; June 11, mass in C,
Beethoven; October IB, Imperial mass,
Havdn; November 12, Twelfth mass, Mo
zart; December 10, Holy City, Gaul.
Belore the principal musical feature of
the service the Eev. Dr. George Hodges
addressed the congregation briefly explain
ing the object oi these musical services.
He expressed his belief that the church had
a duty to perform outside its strictly ecclesi
astical mission; it was bound to do anything
and all things it could to help men upward
An Agent for Great Good.
Good musio was one of the agents through
which it ought to work. As to tho choice
of musio in uie in the Boman Catholic
Church, Dr. Hodges rather rejoiced than
regretted to be able to find in another
branch of the Christian church something
of profit to men's minds and souls; if they
could find such music in the Presbyterian
Church, for instance, they would gladly
At the conclusion of the service, at which
by the way not only a large part of Cal
vary's congregation was present but many
people from remote parts of town, from Al
legheny Citv and even the Ohio Valley
suburbs, Dr. Hodges talked to a reporter
of The Dispatch about the extension of
the musical service on Sunday to other and
especially less favored parts of the city.
"Do you not think, Dr. Hodges, that
such a service as this afternoon's would be
appreciated by the people at large?" was
Services That Would Be Popular.
"Yes," replied Dr. Hodges earnestly; "I
am heartily in favor ot providing music for
the masses on Sunday atternuons, not only
in churches but wherever you can get the
people together. Down among the tene
ments and wherever the poor are, the peo
ple who haven't music at Jhome, I believe
that musical services on Sunday afternoon
would accomplish much good and prove
popular in no time."
It has been found that to give satisfac
tory musical services professional talent
must be had, and it must be paid for.
Speaking of this detail Dr. Hodges said:
"I believe that ten men could easily be
found to subscribe the necessary funds at
once. It is in this direction that the Art
Society can do much good. It certainly is
one ot the objects of the sooiety to elevate
and enlighten the masses, and the musical
service is a practical means. I Lope and
believe that the Art Society will take this
matter up. There it a real need for such
popular services in Pittsburg; I do not say
that what we are tryi g to do here would
exactly suit all people the services could
be arranged on lines to reach all people,
and to suit all tastes. The forms could be
changed, the essential thing is good music,
well rendered and in a religions spirit"

Aarge Surveying Party at Work Between
This City and Ponxsntawney The Bead
in; or the Vanderbllts Interested in tho
Work Say the Gnessers.
It has leaked out within (he past two or
three days that a large surveying party has
been at work between Pittsburg and Punx
sntawney locating a railroad line, and the
matter has excited a great deal of interest
among railroad men in this city. Their
movements have been so carefully guarded
that people in the .vicinity have been led
to believe that at least half a dozen new
railroad lines are to be constructed. The
question which puzzles them most, how
ever, is by whom and for what purpose are
they to be built One claim is that the
Heading is searching for an entrance into
Pittsburg; a second, that the Beech Creek
people contemplate further extensions of
their road, while a third that tne Buffalo,
Rochester and Pittsburg will extend its
line westward from Punxsutawney. The
only fact, however, that is definitely known
is that surveys in that territory are being
Offioials of the Bea'ling Company, says
the Philadelphia Stockholder, on Saturday
asserted that they did not contemplate
building anew line in that part of the State,
but further than that they would not go.
The belief in local railroad circle"! is, how
ever, th.it whatever line is to be built will
be for the V.inderbilts, and oue prominent
official expressed the opinion that the en
gineer corps is working in sections, which
makes it appear that several roads are to be
built "I think they arc working towards
the head or the Turtle creek valley," he
continued, "but if such is the case I cannot
see where they expect to gain anything, as

A BRADDOCK DEDICATION.
The German intherans Hold Impressive
Services of Praise and Song There.
There was a revival among the German
Lutherans in Braddock yesterday on the oc
casion of the dedication of the elegant new
edifice of Immanuel's congregation. The
exercises were of an exceptionally impres
sive and appropriate character, the "leave
services" in the morning being particularly
so. These were conduoted by the pastor,
Bev. Fr. Brand, and were attended only by
members of the congregation.
The dedicatory services in the afternoon
drew an immense attendance, embracing
many visitors from Pittsburg, Allegheny
and McKeesport These services were in
charge of the pastor's father, Eev. P.
Brand, nho preached the dedicatory sermon.
The singing was a marked feature of the
occasion, the German Vocalists from Pitts
burg and several other towns uniting in
one grand chorus. In the evening Bev.
A. W. Meyer, of Allegheny, supplied the
pulpit and delivered an excellent sermon
in English, following which the several
choirs in attendance gave a sacred concert
The congregation of this church has had a
remarkably large and healthy growth since
the present pastor took charge four years
ago, and is now considered the strongest
in point of numbers ot any of- the 19
churches ot Braddock.

The headquarters of the Citizens' Belief
Association at Homestead were deserted
yesterday, and no more supplies were dis

outside of the 218 families first reported

still hard at work and expect, before the
week is over with the assistance of their
friends, to do much toward alleviating the
sufferings of the destitute people.
Bev. J. J. Galloxvav yesterday said: "Al
though quite a number of mill workers
with their families have been found to be
in actual want, we are not wholly satisfied
that we have discovered all that are in
need. To-morrow the members of the as
sociation will begin another canvass, which
will be a most thorough one. "We expect
to find that quite a .number of poor people
have been overlooked, aud steps will at
once be taken to bring them to the front.
