An I'.rrnneon" Impression an to the
BtMMd nation of Those in the Rork
Island Mehoola Corrected.
In view of the fact it had been alleged
that Directors Carter and Durham of the
Rock Ia'and school board were partial to
the Roman Catholic church in the matter
of selection of teachers, an assertion not
withstanding; that it was a base and
shameful misrepresentation of facts, oper
ated to a large extent to the detriment of
those gentlemen, it may be stated that
during the past three years or the entire
period of Dr. Carter's incumbency to the
office of school director two 'teachers
whose affiliations are with the Roman
church have been added to the corps, and
their religious convictions were not taken
into consideration, and there are now in
the public school corps six Roman Cath
olic teachers in a corps of 59, which does
not look as if there was any particular
disposition to favor the Romanists. But
by the way, inasmuch as the question of
religion has been brought up, it is not
improper to state that of the 50 teachers
in oar schools the Methodist denomina
tion has 28 teachers who draw within
$500 of half the $30,000 paid annually to
teachers, which has not been raised as a
cry against our schools, and of course
should not be, whiie Catholic teachers
draw $2,350. In this same connection the
following list of the teachers of the Rock
Island schools according to denomina-,
tions will be of interest:
Methodist Episcopal. .S3 Koman CathoUa . 6
Presbyterian 10 Protestant Episcopal.. 7
Baptist 8 Christian 1
Swedish Lutheran 1 Unknown 4
Now, it is anything but a desirable
matter in connection with our public
schools that there should be an icq dry
into the religious inclinations of its
teachers, but inasmuch as the system has
been attacked on the ground of favoring
a religious sect, it is only proper to show
which sect is best represented and which
sect receives the greatest income from
the school funds. The figures above
are self-explanatory in this repect.
It strikes Tin Argus, too, that in the
light of recent events it is but fair to go
still further and to say that a girl of
Catholic parents educated in the Rock
Island schools and a graduate fr m the
Rock Inland High school with all the
qualifications of a good teacher should
not be ostracized for no other reason than
her faith. More than that the Catholics
pay taxes the same as other people. They
contribute to the support of the pub
lic schools, and two-thirds of the Cath
olics of Rock Island at least, send their
children to the public schools for educa

Imitators and Impostors.
The unequalled success of Allcock's
Porous Plasters as an external remedy has
induced unscrupulous parties to offer im

category as the genuine porous plaster.

vauntee merit unsupported by facts, their
alleged superiority to or equality with
