Order
UUhop WlCKer1
slop Wlagra
Last Sunday It nrns announced in tho I
Roman Catholic ohurohcs of Newark by or
der of Bishop Wuuicn that In accordance
with the decrees of tho Plenary Council at
Baltimore all Catholics numtsoud their chil
dren to Catholic sohooK under pain of de
nial of ulwolutlon unless expressly excused
from to doing by tlio Bishop for reasons
which should scorn to him hulllelcnt
This order has been bitterly assailed by
Protestants as a movement of tho Church of
Homo against tho public bchool system I
which should b resisted as dangerous and
revolutionary Ut wo cannot see how
Protestantu halo any concern In tho matter
Tho parties Interested are the llomon Cuth
ours and them only
It Is tho plain and frequently reiterated
policy and commaud of tho Church of Homo
that Catholic children must bo sent to Cath
olic schools that they must not bo placed
under tho purely secular education of the
State but mmt receive their Instruction
under tho direction of tho Church and In
accordance with Its religious dogma
Doubtless tho Roman Church would prefer
that tho lich ol fund should bo so dl
UdeU that Uu > Catholic schools would
bo supported by tho Htuto j and any
attempt to Obtain such u concession
might reasonably bo resisted by Protes
tants Jews Buddhists and Inildels ua con
trary to BOund pubic policy But when the
Church sets ur schools of Its own and sup
ports them It Js its own business nnd no
body elites and tho Church also has a right
to make such laws as It pleases for the
guidance of its adherents Nobody Ii
obliged to be a Roman Catholic and
therefore nobody Is under a com
pulsion in that respect to which ho
does not willingly l yield Whoever desires
to send his children to the public schools
can do so and It Is of hi own free will If ho
subordinates the desire to his conviction of
the neoesbity of rendering obedience to the
command of his Church If till public
schools better than the narochlal schools
bUliiAun nre ui w i LIIUII mu jfl v uu ovivk
ho sacrifices the secular advantage to what
ho regards as his religious duty For the
eamo reason puilitu send boys to Baptist
Jlethodlbt Prexbytorlan and Episcopal
college rather than to the great unlvor
elties of superior facilities for education
The Roman Church in taking the position
it docs with regard to tho education of
Catholic children burdens itself with much
additional expense but It IH consistent If
it believes that the souls of the children are
Imperilled under i system of purely secular
education it of course tttrotchfa forth its
hand to save them at any cost It Issues
a command ngalist which many Catholics
may rebel and which many others will prob
ably disobey with stubbornness for a larg
part of the pupils of the public schools an
of that faith and for social and other reasoj
their parents prefer that they should i6 >
thero rather than in the parochial schooU
Tho Roman Church therefore takes a bid
step as it has often done before whet it
enforces its theory and discipline In odor
to compel all its adherents to eubmltylon
But that Is purely a domestic mutterwith
Tvhloh tho outside public have nothlngo do
They can send their children to thoiubllo
echools to receive u secular cducutlor only
or they can employ religious solcolB of
their own way of thinking What Roman
Catholics do or fall to do with repectto
education within the Church does lot affect
others Nor is thoro any law of th > State by
which tho Church can bo forblddoi to refnso
absolution to those of Its adherents who die
obey Its spiritual authority It has a right
to forco Into its schools under the pain of
such an ecclesiastical penalty as many
Roman Catholic children as Itcnn
But tho Church must HUppfft tho schools
Thero IB I no union of Clutch and Stiito
hero and there can bo no pipllc taxation for
the schools of any Church or to propagate
any religious doctrines n d dogmas Tho
education of the State irovldod solely be
cause of civil necessities must bo secular
consistently with itt I theory It cannot

ot a llnjtoJ postal I telegraph eorrlce The
meotlntf was publlo and PostmnstorQeneral
Wanatraker and President Chandler of the
PofltatToletrraph Company wore present The
com tee questioned Mr Wanamaker and
Mr fjandler concerning the bill prepared by
tho TOBtmaMerGonornl
MI Wanamaker said that he had never had
nn personal dlfflculty with tbo Western Union
Tooaraph Uompany Ills first hope lie said
hfl been to persuade the Western Union Com
liny to look at tbo matter of telegraph rates
ft he saw them Hut ho had failed In that lie
laid ho wnnto It distinctly understood that
there was no pononnl feeling Iu his comliiK
before the committee and ho had offered the
present bill simply as a study for the commit
too lie said It would be agreeable to him to
havo section 7 of his billthat fixing rates
amended so as to vest the PostuiasterQonoral
with tho power of filing the rates and allowing
him to chicago nom from tlmo to time lie
also said be thought tho Civil Service Commis
sion should control the proposed now service
and ho would also recommend that tbe bill be
amondnd so as tn prevent the use of tho wires
fOr political purpores Dy employees others
lie was not making any Uoutlona on the I
telegraph oompanlox on account of tholr rntos
us that wn purely a buslnuoa mntlui The duy
was coming when there would bo a uniform
postal system reaching over the entire ootmtry
and Initiative must proceed the lino now
proponed Tbo present machinery of the 1 ott
I onice Department nliould be used lie would
start tlio ivstem with true dellTory oulces be
having that before Congress adjourned It
would greatly Increase that sen loo Ills
whole aim In using the employees now
engaged was to obviate tlio objections
which bad boon raised that a postal tolo
graph would take a great deal of money
from the Treasury and would bring In a
new army of employees lie knuw thu tele
erarh people thought ills tchemo visionary
He instated that It was not a now thIng for
oapitallita to organize tulcgrnph COlDllIlDls
The present instance would olTor a Croat In
ducement for capitalists us It would not re
quire no much money as starting new tola
graph companies did In olden times Ttio of
flees wero already providod und a barge
amount business was nlruuuy assured If
the Uovernment f lionld full to got a satisfac
tory contract ho ontondod nothing wouldbo
lost by tho experiment
Mr Chandlqr was nuxt mentioned by tho
commIttee lie was asked partIcularly con
cerning tile relations ot ttio Iostal Tologmuh
Company with the Woutorn Colon but lie 81t111 I
there were DO contract relations Htwoon tins
two companies that need uIToct tho considera
tion of tee present bill lie said thure were
many olats of mutual Intercut to tllll ccmua
ulos while at tho same time there was sharp
competition totweou them
Mr Chandler said that his company could
not lo tho work proposed at tho maximum
rates provided in thy bill without loss o
oilier company could do It without hoes Of
course It the GoMroment furnished till facil
ities tlio employees It would troatlr rc
lIevo thu company doing the work oi u largo

detailed examination of the bill Tho pro
posed new rates would cause a groat deal moro

We want ho said to favor tho interests

tnlegrarh that will destroy soien or cltht mil
