St. Paul, July 11. The feature of the
national convention of educators yester
day was the speech of Archbishop Ireland
on the attitude or tue uoman cat Done
church to the question of state schools.
His address was entitled: "The State
School and the Parish School; Is Union
between them Impossible?" The greatest
of interest was manifested in the prelate's
speech. It was a rare spectacle that of a
Roman Catholic prelate in a convention
of free school advocates and it was the
attraction of the morning session. The
archbishop was greeted with many smiles
when he stepped forward, and at once
proceeded to read his address in a clear,
well cultured voice.
His Profession of Faith.
He began as follows: "I will be permit
ted at once to make my profession of faith.
I declare most unbounded loyalty to the
constitution of my conntry. I desire no
favors. 1 claim no rights that are not in
consonance with its letter and its spirit.
The rights which the constitution allows
I do claim, and in doing so I am but the
truer and the more loyal American. In
what I may say to this distinguished audi
ence, the principles of our common Amer
ican citizenship shall inspire my words.
beg that you listen to me, and discuss my
arguments in the light of these principles.
I am the friend and- the advocate of the
state school. In the circumstances of the
present time, I uphold the parish school.
do sincerely wish that the need of it did
not exist. I would have all schools for the
children of the people state schools.
The State and the Family.
"The accusation has gone abroad that
Catholics are bent on destroying the state
school. Never was there an accusation
more unfounded. The right of the
state school to exist, I consider, is a mat
ter beyond the stage of dicussion. To the
child must be imparted instruction in no
mean degree, that the man may earn for
himself an honest competence, and acquit
himself of the duties which society ex
acta from htm for its own prosperity and
life. The proposition, true in any country
of modern times, is peculiarly true in
America. The imparting of ibis instruc
tion is primarily the function of the
child's parents. The family is prior to the
state. The state's place in the
function of instruction is loco parentis.
As things are, tens of thousands of chil
dren will not be instructed it parents re
main solely in charge of the duty. The
state must come forward as an agent of
instruction, else ignorance will pre

and blest tbe generations upon whose

ied for the dispelling of mental darkness
and the building up within a nation's
bosom of intelligent manhood and woman

much good accrues to the individual tax
payer; the general welfare is richly served,
and this suffices. It is scarcely necessary
to add that the money paid in school tax

Limitation of Compulsion.
"Compulsory education implies attend

by the state only when there is no attend

degree. The compulsory laws recently
enacted in certain states of the nnion are,
to my judgment, objectionable in a few of
their incidental clauses. These, I am con
fident, will readily be altered in approach
ing legislative sessions. With the body of
laws, and their general intent in the di
rection of hastening among us universal
instruction, I am in most hearty accord.
The free school of America !
withered be the hand raised in sign of its
Objections to State Schools.
After stating that he was sorry that the
parish school existed that there was
necessity for its existence the archbishop
went on to say: "There is a dissatisfaction
with the state school, as at present organ
ized. The state school, it is said, tends-to
the elimination of religion from the minds
and hearts of the youth of the country.
This is my grievance against the state
schools of to-day. Believe me, my Protest
ant fellow-citizens, that I am absolutely
sincere when I now declare that I am
speaking for tbe weal of Protestantism as
well as for that of Catholicism. I am
Catholic, of course, to tbe tiniest fiber of
my heart, unflinching end uncompromis
ing in my faith. But God forbid that I
desire to see in America tbe ground wbiob
Protestantism occupies exposed to the
chilling and devastating blast of un
belief. Let me be "your ally in stem
ming the swelling tide of irreligion, the
death-knell of Christian life and of Chris
tian civilization, the fatal foe of souls
and of cenntry.
They Don't Teach Religion.
"The state school is non-religions. It ig
nores religion. There la and there can be
no positive religious iaaching where the
principle of non-sectarianism rules. What
follows The school treats of
laud and sea, but not of heaven; it speaks
of statesmen and warriors, but is silent
on God and Christ; it tells how to attain
success in this world, but says nothing as
to the world beyond the grave. The pupil
sees and listens; tbe conclusion is inevita
ble, that religion Is of minor importance.
Religions indifference will be his creed;
bis manhood will be, as his childhood in
the school, estranged from God and the
positive influence of religion." Attendance
at school left no time for proper religious
Instruction in the family, the bishop said,
and the school crowds out the work of the
church. The children of the masses were
learning no religion.
Mo Morals Without Religion.
After elaborating the above point he
went on: "Do not aay that the state school
teaches morals. Christians demand re
ligion. Morals without the positive prin
ciples of religion, giving to tbem root and
sap, do not exist. What seems to be mor
als without religion is the blossoming of
fortunate and kindly disposed natures, or
habits fashioned upon Christian tradi
tions, which grow weaker as the tradi
tions become remote. To the American
people at, large religious-minded and
God-fearing as I know them to be I put
me question: ought we not to nave in
connection with the school religious in
struction? That there are serious difficul
ties in the wajrl confess. But are we to
stop at difficulties when it is incumbent
upon us to reach the goal? Secularists
and unbelievers will interpose their rights.
I allow them their rights. I will not im
pose upon them my religion, with its
Christianity. But let them not impose on
me and my Iellow-Cbristians their re
ligion, which is secularism.
A Solution of the Problem.
The archbishop then set to work to give
a solution of the difficulty. He said the
proposition that a common Christianity be
taugnt in tbe schools would not do; that
Roman Catholics in fidelity to their princi
ples "cannot accept a common Christian-
ity." He then said: "Cther coiutrlea,
whose civilization we donx despise, havi
found a solution. I intat ce but England
and Prussia. I 'would permeate
the regular state school -with the religion
of the majority of tbe chili ren of the land,
be It as Protestant as Pre testanttsni can
be, and I would as they do in England,
pay for the secular instr iction given in
denominational schools icording to re
nits that is, each pupil passing the ex
amination before state officials would se
cure to his school the cos', of the tuition
of a pupil in the state schoil. This Is not
paying for the religious instruction given
to the pupil, but for the tecular instruc
tion demanded by the sU te and given to
the pupil as thoroughly ai he could have
received it in the state sch jol." .
A Word for Roman Catholics.
Archbishop Ireland closid with the fol
lowing protest: "Is it fair, is it honest, to
raise the cry that Catholics are opposed to
education, to free schools, lo the American
school system? I do lose my patience when
adversaries seek to place tis in this false
position so contrary to all our convictions
and resolve. In presence of this vast and
distinguished assembly, to address which
is an honor I shall never forget, I protest
with all the energy of my foul against the
charge that the schools of she nation have
their enemies among Catholics. Not one
stone of tbe wondrous edifice which Amer
icans have built up in their devotion to ed
ucation will Catholics remove or permit to
DISAGREES WITH THE BISHOP.
Superintendent Thayer, of Wisconsin,
Malcea Some Con meat.
When the name of J. B. Thayer, of Mad
ison, Wis., state superintet dent of schools,
was announced the audie ice burst forth
in great applause. He evidently was not
willing to take Archbishop Ireland's word
for the statement that the church ol
Rome loved state schools," unless she had
charge of them.' He bei;an by quoting
President Cleveland: "'Ism impressed by
this discussion with the fact that a condi

No discussion of compu .sory laws aud
their enforcement as mere obstruction
will avail. The real question is a prac
tical one of adjustment ami of educational
agencies. Public schools exist
to-day by the force of laws as hateful to
enemies of free schools v.'ben they were
enacted as are now the recent compulsory
laws of Wisconsin and Illinois. It is no
more hateful to compel a citizen to edu
cate his own child than to compel bim to
pay a tax to educate his neighbor's chil
dren." A Question of Americanism.
He then proceeded: "Rent events in
my own state confirmed nieiathe belief
that opposition to the free schools is un
American. I have a suspicion that the ul
tra sentiment in the opposition to our free
school system has a purpoai that is not tn
harmony with the princip es of our government-

language of this, their adopted country, I
have a right to suspect that there is some

A Significant Opposition.
"This eeclesiastical opposition is signifi
cant, and gives color to the suspicion that
the ultramontane Jesuitic . element of the
Roman Catholics in America, with its an
cient enemy for allies, dee ns itself suffi
ciently strong in the republic to adopt a
more aggressive policy and assert tbe dan
gerous and unconstitutional doctrines de
fined in t he syllabus, not covertly in words,
but openly and defiantly it acts. Unless
the question that is now up for discus
sion is settled in harmony with the prin
ciples of this government t here will be a
conflict between the Jesuitical hierarchy
of the Vatican, armed with the syllabus,
and the American people. I am not an
alarmist and 1 firmly believe
tbat Catholic citizens will take care of
that issue if it comes. They know
the history and civilization of Italy, of
Spain, of Austria, and of Poland, and
they do not covet such." W r. Thayer was
uproariously applauded all through his
Remarks of Other 8ea1cera.
The archbishop was frequently applaud
ed, especially when he dec! ared for com
pulsory education, but his criticisms of the
schools as godless were re eived with a
little coolness. O. H. Coor, of Texas,
then read a paper In whit h he opposed
compulsory education, an l be was re
ceived coldly by tbe audience, and his
views were attacked by s iveral of the
speakers who followed him. The remain

Washington City, July 11. The Re
publican members of the . senate held a
caucus last night to consider the order of
business for the rest of the present session
of congress, particularly with reference to
the federal election, law and the tariff
bill. It has been understood generally
that tbe Democratic members of the sen
ate intend to prevent the passage of the
federal election law, if possible, and that
to achieve this purpose they are prepared
to filibuster against the tariff bill and any
other measure which may be brought up
for consideration, with a view of prolong
ing the session and tiring tbe Republican
senators into an agreement to a compro
mise by which the federal election law
will be allowed to go over until the next
Examining: the Precedents.
Members of the finance committee who
are interested in the enactment of a tariff
law have urged npon their brethren the
advisability of coming to an understand
ing with tbe Democrats under .which the
tariff bill will be passed within a reason
able time and the federal election bill
allowed to go over. But the friends of
the election bill have brought a great deal
of pressure to bear in favor of forcing that
measure to a passage before adjournment,
and with a view to testing the possibilities
of action they bave examined the rules of
the senate aud the record of past contests
nnder similar rules. The result justifies
them in the belief tbat in spite of the fili
bustering of the Democrats the bill can
How It Was Done in 1871.
In support of this claim it' was recalled
in the caucus that when the bill to pro
vide for supervisors of election was under
consideration in 1S71, Thurman offered,
one after another, thirty amendments, in
tended to delay the consideration of the
bill, and by concerted and agreed action
by the Republicans under which one Re
publican senator was recognized regularly
to move to lay each amendment on the ta
ble, all of these dilatory amendments were
disposed of within twenty-four hours. It
was proposed that tbe senate should sit
out the consideration of the elections bill
if it took three months. This proposition
was debated at great length.
A lMicmtptinn in the Debate.
Frye, the chairman of the committee on
commerce, who has the river and harbor
bill in charge, said that be would like to
have some determination reached as to the
time when it could be considered, as he
was anxious to get it into conference. Al
lison said that the sundry civil appropria
tion bill was on the calendar, and it was
necessary that it be disposed of an earlv
day. An agreement was reached finally
by which the postal subsidy bills, which
bave been under debate for several days,
will be taken up again to-day with a view
to taking a vote on them before adjourn
ment, and that on Saturday the sundry
civil appropriation bill will be called np.
Kt-turnlng to their Mutton.
The discussion of the possibility of pass
sing the federal election bill was then re
sumed, and debate was had under the five
minute rule for nearlv three hours.
Spooner, Hoar, Frye, and Kvarts, all mem
bers of the election committee, expressed
themselves in favor of passing the bill.
Aldrich, the chairman of the committee
on rules, said that it would be possible to
pass it in one of only two ways either
by sitting it out as bad been proposed.
or by changing the rules of the senate so
as to permit a limit to be placed on de
bate. Favoring a Chance In the Rule.
This suggestion gave rise to a long dis
cussion about the possibility of making a
change in the rules. Kdnmnds bitterly
opposed the proposition and Teller, a
member of the committee on privileges
and elections also expressed some opposi
tion to it. A general debate which ensued
developed the fact that a majority of the
senators favored the passage of the federal
election bill at this session of congress and
that a majority favored a change in the
rules which would make this possible.
Three Weeks Talk on Tariff.
The caucus adjourned at 11:10 with the
understanding that another caucus will
be held Saturday night to come to a final
determination on the subject. In the
meantime nothing will be done with the
tariff bill. A leading member of the cau
cus said after adjournment that the tariff
bill would probably occupy three weeks
in discussion, but that the federal elec
tion bill won Id lie put through in a week's
time if it was determined to consider it.

American Inspectors to Be Stationed at
Washington City, July 11. In Febru

tbe state department that contagious ani
mal diseases had been so effectually
stamped out in this country as to warrant
that department in urging upon the Brit
ish authorities the perfect safety of re
moving the restrictions imposed on the
shipment of American live cattle and
sheep to Great Britain. Nego.iations were
at once inaugurated by the state depart
ment, resulting in tbe removal of the re
strictions relative to sheep, contingent
upon action by this government which
would prevent the introduction of dis
eases of sheep into this country. f
An Issue of Fact Presented.
The British government, however, per
sisted in its refusal to grant any conces
sion regarding live cattle, alleging tbe
continued existence of contagious pleuro
pneumonia in the United Stating and that
cattle affected with this disease bad been
discovered in recent -hipmenta to Great
Britain from this country. Secretary
Rusk met this allegation with a prompt
denial and the proposition that his depart
ment should be represented in Great Brit
ain by veterinary inspectors, charged with
the duty of inspecting all American cattle
landed in tbat country. The British gov
ernment agreed to this, and three inspect
ors were sent over. As soon as proper
legislation ft enacted cattle will be in
spected on this side-and properly tagged, so
that if disease iu the cattle is discovered
on the otBor side the responsibility can be

day, and then proceeded with the discus

long speech against it, one of the points of
which was tbe reiteration of the charge
that the demonetization of silver had been
accomplished by indirection. The debate
was kept up by various senators pro and
con until 5:45 p. m., when the subjact hav
ing been talked out, tbe vote on agreeing
to the conference report was taken, and re
sulted: Ayes, 39; nays, 26 a party vote

was paired with Sherman, released that

The balance of the day was mostly do
voted to filibustering by tbe Democrats,
there being so many Republican ab
sentees, to prevent action on the resolu
tion to take up the original package bill.
The Democrat bad it all their own way,
and in their speeches embraced the oppor
tunity to attack the speaker, who sat and
took it all very coolly. Finally the jour
narWas approved corrections of that
having been made the ostensible subject
of discussion and tbe conference reports
on the diplomatic and agricultural appro

tee the land grant forfeiture bill was

White Man's Throul on an Excursion
Train Several People Hurt.
uriffix, Ua., July 11. A ratal race
riot occurred at Starr's mill-pond, in Fay
ette county, yesterday afternoon, in which
four negroes were killed and six wound-
wounded. Eight white men were shot
also. A darkey selling wine on the occa
sion became engaged in a war of words
with a white man about the purchase of
some wine, which resulted in the negro
getting slightly cut. From this the quar
rel began and was taken up by others un
til the white man beeame involved with a
negro who had a gun, but who rMd not
care to use it.
The Slaughter Be&iaa.
Anderson Williams, another negro, told
him if he would not shoot the d d scoun
drel to give him the gun and he would
shoot him himself. He took the gun and
emptied it into the white man's chest and
bowels. He was immediately shot through
the neck and diet! in a few minutes. The
shooting then became general, tbe shots
sounding like a canebrake burning.
A Raid for Ammunition.
After emptying their weapons a demand
was made of a merchant for more ammu
nition. He refused to sell, but the infu
riated rioters ran roughshod over him and
helped themselves to all be had. There
were over 500 people on the ground, and it
is a mystery that the shooting was not
more fatal in its result.

about thirty drunken negroes, who broke
the car seats to fragment and used the
pieces as t lulw.

The lights were knocked out and a ter
rible conflict ensued, during which nine
negroes were disabled. W. G. Baldwin
was stabbed in the left side, hit in the
bead with a fragment of iron and terribly
clubled. His wounds am serious. De
tective Campbell was badly hurt in the
side. Detective Robertson had his right
arm broken. Baldwin shot the negro who
stabbed him in the shoulder and again in

A Sou onia.
From Keokuk, la.. Democrat.
August, 1887, was a noted month. It
gave extreme heat and extreme cold, the
results of which were disastrous to tbe
public health. Cases of colic, cholera
morbus and diarrhoea were abundant and
there were numerous calls at the drug
stores for Chamberlain's Colic, C balers
and Diarrhoea Remedy. Druggists of
this city tell as that this remedy has been
more frequently called for daring tbe
past montn man any other preparation.
and that it has proven a panacea for the
very worst cases. Chamberlain s Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy is a mer
itorious medicinal preparation for all
summer complaints for which it is recoow
mended, and grows in popularity In this
city and vicinity. Tbe sales are increase
ing rapidly and wonderful cores are re
ported. Sold by Harts & Bahnsen.

things a woman doesn't know." There
