Indiana Supremo Court Decision ll<
firming’ tho Right of Colored CUU<
dren to Attend tho Public Schools*
Indianapolis, Ind., April o.—ln tho Supreme
Court, Judge i’erkine this morning rendered a
decision in tho Cory Carter cose, which mot the
unanimous concurrence of tho otuor members of
tho Bench. Tho questions involved In this case
Aro tho right of colored children to go to tbo
public schools, and tho constitutionality of cer
tain sections of tho School law. The case was
upon an application for a mandate to compel tho
school oncers of Lawrence Township to admit
tho ohilaron and grandchildren of Cory Gaiter,
colored, to the common school of that township,
no separate school having bean provided for
thoir benefit. A demurrer was filed to the ap
plication, and also a motion to quash. Alter a
description of tho case, tho opinion roads as fol
lows : .
Great ability and research have characterized argu
ments upon tho motion; I shall not follow the coun
sel over the wide Hold they traversed lu argument.
I eholl limit myself to tho statement* of a few propo
tiltiom, which seem to mo to support tho conclusion to
which I have arrived. The ultimate question in tho
case to bo decided is this : Have the children residing
in the various districts in tho different townships of
tho State, in which no separate schools have been or
ganized for colored children, a right to attend tho
school organized iu such townships in common with
white onlldrcn? On tho 26th of July, 1800, tho Fif
teenth Amendment became a part of the Constitution
of the United States. That amendment ordered
that ' all persons bum or naturalized in tbo
United States und subject to tbo laws and penalties
thereof, are citizens of the United Slates and of tho
Slate wherein they reside. Art. 8 Boa. 1 of tho Con
stitution of tho State of Indiana reads: “Knowledge
and learning generally diffused throughout a com
munity, being essential to theprcservatlonof free gov
ernment, it snail be the duty of tho General Assembly
to encourage, by all suitable moans, moral, intellectual,
scientific, and agricultural improvement, and to pro
vide by law for a general and uniform system of com
mon schools, wherein tuition shall be without charge
and equally open to all.” This expression “ equally
Open to all,” Includes at least all citizens, and the sys
tem of common schools is composed of tho various
district schools of tho Slate. At the date of tho taking
effect of tho Fourteenth Amendment to tho Constitu
tion of the United States, the State of Indiana had in
operation a system of common schools, wherein
tuition was free to white children under 31 years of
«ge, they beingcltlzenn of tho State, and on tho taking
effect of that amendment, the several schools com
posing that system, by virtue of the section above
quoted from our Slate Constitution, became open and
free to colored children, also being under 21 years of
u;e. As that amendment placed (hem In tho class of
citizens, they had tbo right to enter and attend those
Kchools until reasonably convenient separate schools,
substantially equal In educational advantages were
provided for them by the State, ond whenever iu ony
lowuebip such schools are not provided for them by
tbo State, colored children, being citizens and
uuder'Jl years of age, still retain tbo right conferred
upon citizens'children to attend tho common schools
squal with tbo white children in such locality.

St. Paul, April o.—President Turroll gives
tho particulars of tho Mariuo Bank forgery as
follows: On tho. 2d inst. a stranger presented
Mr. Turroll a letter, introducing himself as J. R.
Wood. Tho letter. was from Ogdon, Sheldon A
Co., of Chicago, and Wood said that it was writ
ten by tho advice of J. M. Crane, Cashier of tho
Shoo and Leather Bonk, Now York, aud that ho
(Wood) was from Now York, coming West for his
health, bringing money to invest. After some
conversation, Wood produced a cheek for SB,OOO,
drawn by Ogden, Sheldon & Co,, on tho Mer
chants’ Savings Loan and Trust Company, of
Chicago (certified), proposing to deposit and
draw against it when ho found
in real estate, and called for a bank-book. Tur
roll, being about to go lout, introduced .Wood to
tho Cashier and tho vioo-Prosidont, and loft
him talking with them. Tho Cashier, Mr.
Howes, having entered the deposit, banded
Wood the hook, aud the latter said to him bo
needed $4,800 for immediate use, and drew a
check accordingly. Howes, supposing this was
in pursuance of an arrangement with President
Turret!, paid a check for that amount. All this
occurred within about a quarter of an hour,—
probably between two visits of the same person
to tho Merchants’ National. President Turroll
did not know until tho next day that any money
had boon paid to Wood, and until he had hoard
of the Merchants’ forgery.
Tbo obook bod already boon sent to Chicago for
collection. A telegraphic, inquiry was answered
by tho information that tbo letter of introduc
tion and tbo check woro both forged.
Wood had, and * exhibited, otbor business
papers, among which was a bank-cortlflcato to
ills signature. His plan, it appears, was tbo
same at both banks, but was obaugod on a mo
ment’s thought by iho opportunity afforded by
tho departure of President Turrell,
Vice-President of tho Marino Bank, started for
Chicago last evening, and tho two banks aro

OBHKOBU, Wis;, April B.—Both political organl

one of tho wards had tho Reform caucus packed
with his fnohds, tickets distributed, and all tho
" pins sot up” for nomination. Qo was on the
point of carrying tho nomination, when it was

can caucus with his friends, and scoured tho

S rising Gorman had boon promised tlio uomma
on of Supervisor by tho Reformers, but was de
feated. Ho also wont straight to tho opposi

dozen real friends' in~the city, by dint of con
stant labor and importuning, can secure tho
Sromiao of support from a sufficient number of
©legates to procure his nomination to any of
