The republican leader seem to have
quite a scare on about the coming elect
tlona in the four new states. Senators
Allison, Chandler and Cullora spent last
week in consultation with the "big Runs"
of their party in figuring out a pro
gramme that would give them all the
members of the bouse as well as the
senators from those stales. Democrats
who are well informed believe that the
party is almost certain to carry Montana.

the dsy of all the year in which the flag
may most appropriately spread iteelf.
The point has been lai.ted with respect to
the arrangement, that no such symmetry
will lie possible again till we have forty
nine states in the union, when the stars
will stand in seven rows of seven. But
from the way the territories are filling up

Vt Ith Reference to Private Srhonla.
tVith rejar l to private schools Dr. Hill l
lieves it Uie duty of the state to inspect them
and require the elu.-ation given therein to be
iich as to preri-u-e tbe pupils for the duties ot
eitixen-hip. The papr conclu.les thus:
Srm- mti -earned to have been dazed by
tbe cIhiiiis of the Catholic church on one side,
and a.'tio-ti. im on the otier. That church
denies the ni:ht of private judgment upon
every point upon which she has rendered a
d i-H'ti Hrr laity hive but little voice in
tu de i uns.
The Roman Catholic Claim.
Their con. p!a nt is tbst religion cannot be

aronld Lav tlieir own parthial s. h.s.l alone
give reli jii: in-tr.ictun and thn claim that
tho-e sclioo's hould r.-ceive due proportion of
the puhlu- tx-hixl funds. It is not required by
jutic to le d to i bos,- claims, and it is for
bid Urn by every huh crmtideration of political
wisdom and philanthrope. The states should
not in any ay. by legislation or otherwise,

l,JrrtiM ta the Tapal Contention.
Least of aii Is a Catholic parochial school
capable of fulfilling the politual ends of a
gid education: sin e ia I Lorn is not only tat
part i.l and di-torted s- of hi-Uiry. but a
limitation of the richt of private judgment
which must partially unlit the pupil for con
sidering questions of public policy with a free,
unbiased mind t altmik- til ucat ion is favor
able to the development of diplomatists and
political mana.-e rv but it tends to unfit a man
for frank and bone-t public discussion. The
aim of every lover of our country and its
liberties should therefore be to re. id r the pub
lic at hiols so manifestly superior morally and
intellect uallv to private schools as to draw all
the children into them.
IT. vace Take a Liberal Tiew.
Rev. Ir. Mm at J. Savage, alter entering
upon a lengthy explanation of Velljivas in
strnctiotv," defines the question to be whether
any religion or mire than one shall be taught
In the public schools, and then argues as fol
lows: "In tbe case of those who believe
that the salvation of toeir children's souls ia
at stake there cannot be a more odious tyr
anny than to compel them to submit to a
teaching that, to taeir minds, entails such
horrible eomequeacea. So far yi this goes
my sympathies are with tbe Romsuiists as
against the teachings of any form of Protest
antism in tbe school. And in the case of
those who do not lie'oeve that the endles
welfare -of tbir children is at stake, com
pelling them to submit to the teaching of a
religion tLey don't believe is a waste of
None of the State's Basiaev.
Dr. Savage then goes on to ear that it ts
none of the state's business to engage ia sav
ing souls. Tbe state legislature or the na
tional congress may compel such popular
education as fits a man intelligently to vote,
as a measure of public safety. But the nsv
tkal jurisdiction and tbe state's is confined
to this world. "Once grant, then," ays Dr.
Savage, "that it is none of tbe state's busi
ness to save souls, and it follows with inexor
able logic that it is none of the state's busi
ness to"iindertake the' work of Uachiug any .
body's special religion. If a Calvinistie father
wants to teach bis boy Calvinism nobody
queatiot s bis right to do it But most cer
tainly be has no right to take money out ot
my pool et (by a tax or in any other way) to
do it wi h. And the same holds true of the
Romaniit, Jew, or agnostic.
The Frtnelple of the Thins;.
The rlnciple then Is clear as daylight.
The put die school, supported by the equal
taxation of people pf all beliefs, exists and
has a rit ht to exist sitnoly and solely for the
cake of such education as fits for citisnnshlp,
and so i for the puhlio good. The church
and the borne give ample scope for all indi
vidual peculiarities ot belief or theory. The
public school is for the people and for all the
people. Let it be kept true to its own high
and sacred mission."
Prof. Harris Philosophises.
rrofeiaor W. T. Harris says that religious
instruct on in the public schools is inexpedi
ent on 1 be ground that they are for all citi
ens, wl atever their religious belief or no
belief. It is the conviction of the average
Americs n citisen that rights of private con
science must be respected, and that church
.and stat) must be entirely separate. He op
poses religious instruction in the public
schools, also for this reason. Religious truth,
he says, is revealed tn allegoric and sym
bolic foi m, and is to be appreciated not
merely by the intellect, but by the imag
ination und tbe heart. The analytic under
standing is nect ssarily hostile and skeptical
in its at itudo toward religious truth, an t tbe
mingling of religious and secular instruction,
cultivate flippant and shallow reasoning on
sacred theme. The child is not able to grasp
the rationality of dogma. In parochial
schools t tie influence of the dogmatic tone
creeps ir to the secular recitations and drives
out a detirable critical alertness and investi
gating spirit, and stifl.-s independent think
ing. Mi. Harris cites the "infidelity" in
Germany as an argument against religion in
tbe schoi Is. In Germany, he says, where the
critical, tlert method ot investigation pre
vails tbe religious lessons suffer because the
pupil's n ind is not in a proper frame to re
ceive them. In other countries the dogmatic
tone of religion renders the secular education
