LAND LEASING TOUR IS PLANNED Commissioner mill Aanl nl mi I In Slnrl Ont from Trrnlan Antclopn Count)- lilvi-s llctiillf Henna Hope. (From a Staff Correspondent. LINCOLN. Oct. s. (Special. )-Shall the bible bo read In the public schools of Ne braska? This question has bren brought to the attention of the department of pub lic Instruction. In this state the matter In left to tho discretion of the local dis trict bonrda, as are othfr rules prescrib ing' courses of study, etc.. but there Is no law on the stibleci that can be applied to all .schools alike. Discussing the question Deputy Superintendent Mcllrltn says; 'The reading of the bible In tho public si bonis has been h question of considerable discussion during the entire history of this nation. It has had ardent advocate and bitter enemies. Probably no other qucs Hon connected with our public school sys tem has excited tho Interest, alarmed the understanding!! or aroused the feelings of the people to such au extent ut) whether the bible should bo read In tho, public schools or excluded therefrom. "We must remember that tho constitution of tho United States declares: 'Cougrcss shall make no law respecting an establish ment of religion or prohibiting the frc'o ex ercise thereof.' "It Is tho custom In most of the public schools to open the exorcises of tho day with reading a few verses of the bible, without note or comment. In some of tha large cltlea, I regret to say, this custom has been abandoned by the school boards. The whole subjt-t Is usually left to tho discretion of the Hoard of Education, as are other rules, sucn as prescribing courues of study and so on. "Where the law leaves such a discretion with the board, as It usually docs, the courts have refused to restrain, coerce or Interfere with such discretion. No court of last resort, has ever held that a rule adopted by a public school board requir ing that the bible should be read lu the schools under Its charge l unconstitutional. On the contrary, It has been held by the highest courts In several of the stateti that , such a rulo l entirely proper and not un constitutional. "The constitution of Nehrnska proclaims religion, morality and knowledge as doing essential to good government. Washing ton, In his farewell address, maintained that religion nnd morality arc Indispensa ble to human happiness. "If religion nnd morality nre such price li'ss virtues It follows that tho best book on Ihcso vlrtuci should be read at the open ing exerclsei. for the day In every public tch ol In America. Let there bo no note, rnmment or exposition of It. Its words are profound cnot.gh for the statesman, yet nlmplo enough for the child. After scrip turn reading lot the school, with bowed heads, unite In the Lord's prayer. Kxcuse nny child from these exorcise whose pa rents may request It, but for those of us who dcslro the bible bo read let there bo ncno to make nil objection." I.nuil I. mains Tnnr.

I do not know that railroads and express companies nnd telegraph und telephone companies, nil of which uro assessed by the executive council, pay their full slut re of taxes, but I bell-vc they do; If 1 did not I would have urged 1111 Increase.

"Venezuela seems determined It posslblo to retrlovo Its fallen fortunes nt Goajlta. If It falls In this present endeavor It Is said even among army' ameers that the Colombian forces, allied GoaJIra Indians and Venezuelan revolutionists opposed to President Castro will unite and march on Maracalbo with good chances of captur ing tho placo. Such action would prob ably also mean the enpture of San Carlos fort nnd tho liberation of tho Venezuelan political prisoner there, Including Gen eral Hernandez or 'Bl Macho.'

The Indians aro now retal iating, cruelly mutilating nnd murdering many of the numerous fugitives who hnvo been straggling since the defeat over tho waterless, burning Hat ponlnsula In an effort to reach their lauds or tho coast.
