TOLD OF THE TRACK.
Iirrerenee in tbe Southwestern
Trattlcs Other News.
Xo headway is being made by offi
cials f the Southwestern Traffic
association lines toward healing the
differences which bid fair to wreck
their association. The gist of the
whole dispute is in regard to the
membership of the Rock Island, the
recent completion of its Texas line
making it impossible to form a good
association without it.
The difficulty is that the Rock Isl
and route was laid out after the
tariffs on through business were es
tablished. For instance, St. Louis is
a 116 pt r cent point. That is, on
business from the Atlantic seaboard
the rate to St. Louis is 10 per cent
higher than to Chicago. But the
Rock Island crossed the Mississippi
at Rock Island, a 122 per cent point.
Naturally it cannot compete for
Texas business and charge G per
cent more than the St. Louis lines
charge. It therefore wishes to put
itself on an equality by making
Davenport a 11 per cenj point. It
not only wishes this equality, but
will certainly obtain it. On no oth
er terms can it do a through busi
ness on its new Texas line, and it
certainly does not propose to depend
entirely on local business. This
question is by no means a new one.
The Atchison crosses the Mississippi
at Fort Madison and its first tariff
established its crossing as a 116 per
cent point. There is no further ob
ject in the St. Louis lines kicking
against the pricks. Hither in or out
of the association, the Rock Island
will make competing rates via Rock
Island. The St. Louis lines recog
nize this as inevitable, but by their
delay in yielding are piling up addi
tional hinderances to the formation
The Milwaukee Cut.

The trainmen of each division sent
delegates to a convention at Mil
waukee, which delegated a commit
tee to meet the company's officers in
Chicago. The men declined to ac

A False Public Si hool statement Tointedly
During the last few months the re
port has been circulated in certain
circles in Rock Island with an aim to
create prejudice that in the city of
La Salle, 111., where people of Roman
Catholic faith largely predominate
among religious demominations that
the schools were absolutely in con
trol of the church of Rome, and not
long since a member of the Rock Isl
and board of education was heard to
announce with apparent authority
that "La Salle had dropped her last
non-Catholic teacher." Anxious to
ascertain the truth of the matter,
the Auors sought the informa
tion from the most reliable source
the superintendent of schools of La
Salle, who, by the way. is not a
Catholic himself, and from him
comes this unmistakable answer,
which needs no words of comment:
La Salle, 111., Aug. 24. F:i
itoi: Altars: I deeply deplore that
the unfounded rumor 'that ""La Salle
had dropped her last non-Catholic
teacher" should have been circu
lated in Rock Island and have been
believed by many of her citizens.
But credulity nurtured in the soil of
rooted prejudices easily believes a
falsehood, and just as easily impro
vises an excuse. The policy of the
management of the schools of Rock
Island is a matter that is of no par
ticular concern to myself, but when
the policy of the management of the
schools of La Salle, in which I am di
rectly interested, is unjustly as
sailed, and this false accusation is
used as the pretended reason to vin
dicate a policy which shamefully dis
criminates against pure womanhood,
simply because it has been reared in
the precious teachings of a mother's
religious faith, I eel that I owe it to
La Salle and to the liberal-minded
people of Rock Island that such a
falsehood should be refuted by incon
In many respects La Salle has pre
sented an example of religious toler
ation exceptional in the history of
cities. The question of religion has
never entered as a factor in the elec
tion of teachers in this city. Had
the people made that a direct issue,
no Protestant could have been
elected, for the city is probably more
largely Catholic than any other city
of its size in Illinois. The policy of
the hoard of education has been.
wnen u could ie done without prej
udice to the interests of the schools,
to elect teachers from the graduates
of the La Salle High school. I be
lieve t his is not an unusual practice
in ot her cities. When vacancies oc
cur, there are generally many appli
cants, lor teachers once elected usual
ly are sure of a life position. Since
the larger per cent of the applicants
from this city are Catholics, and the
hoard being likewise constituted, it
follows naturally that religion has
but little to do with the election of
teachers. The election simply hing
ing on the qualifications and on the
personal following of the applicant.
I presume thatisdhe policy of Rock
T.I l ? .
isiano or noes it inner m minor
The present corps of instructors
consist of 20 teachers in the graded
schools, two instructors in the" High
school and a superintendent of all
the schools. The reason the number
of teachers ii not larger, is because
the pupils of the parochial schools
outnumber the pupils of the public
schools. There were six Protestant
teachers connected with the schools
last year, or about 27 per cent of the
entire corps. It has been even
larger than this. The superintend
ent of schools has always been a
Protestant. My predecessor had
charge of the schools for 10 years.
Four of the highest positions in the
gift of the board of education have
been held by Protestants for years,
and had not the principal of the
High school and the two grammar
school principals resigned of their
own accord at the close of the school
year, they would have been re
elected. Neither would there ever
have arisen a condition whereby
they would not have been re-elected
because of their religious belief.
What Is Kock I sin nil's Position?
Is Rock Island prepared to put at
the head of her schools a Catholic?
Is her board of education willing to
employ for a score of years 27 per
cent of her corps of teachers from
Catholic applicants? If not, she
ought to be silent regarding the pol
icies of those communit ies who show
a larger spirit of unselfishness and a
greater degree of Christian for
bearance. Of what avail is it for a
young lady to graduate from our
High schools, with the expectation
of teaching, if when she timidly asks
for a position to teach, the " cold
blooded insinuation is flung in her
face, "You are a Catholic," or "You
are a Protestant?" Such action is
un-American; it is un-Christian anda
stain upon the policy of school man
agement. Aye! it is an insult against
intelligence, honor and .virtue.
