Bishop O'Reilly on Education
of the Youth.
What Cntholic Children. Are Taught
in Schools by Nuns and Prfeata
Fart Taken in Upbuilding: o
the United States.
BAKER CITY, Or., Sept 8. (Special.)
Bishop O'Reilly has caused a sensation
here by a speech he delivered Sunday af
ternoon at the laying of the corner-stone
of the new St. Francis Academy. While
many people in the audience took excep
tion to the bishop's views on the subject
of education, wherein he objected to pub
lie schools and Insisted that the church
the Catholic Church had the God-given
right to educate the.young, they did not
realize the strength and vigor of the lan
guage used until they saw it in cold type
today. The address was not taken down
by a stenographer, but a. copy of it was
supplied to the local papers for publica
tion today. Referring to the objection
offered by some people to church schools
Bishop O'Reilly said:
"Doubtless to the mind of the infidel,
the rationalist, the worldling, whose God
Is Mammon, this work seems unwisdom
and foolishness.
" 'Why, they say, 'burden the people
already heavily taxed with an expensive
Institution, when the state Is ready and
willing to assume the work? Why im
pose a double tax on a generous but
struggling people?'
"We answer because of a law which
neither the state nor the parents should
dare violate; because of a law which all
are bound to -tfbey; because of a sacred
duty which eery true minister of God
should discharge toward his people. That
law is universal and eternal as God him
self." Referring to the public or state schools
he said:
"Two educators present themselves be
lore the parent uive me your dojv says
the state, 'I am prepared to educate him.
I have the wealth to maintain the best
equipped schools, to -pay the most ad
vanced teachers. I have a right to edu
cate the child, as I require educated citi
zens, capable of exercising intelligently
their right of suffrage.'
"What Is this state which makes this
demand? A corporation without heart or
soul. How and why does it teach? Does
It teach the boy to be honest, upright,
truthful, chaste, obedient to its parents,
to believe In God, hope in God, love JGod
and his .fellow beings? None of these. It
will tell the boy of the magnitude and
distance of the stars, of the science of
astronomy, of physiology, of minerology,
and the like, but nothing of the great God
who made all for men and men for
In regard to the right of the church to
control the education of the young he
"Come to me says this Catholic Mother
Church. I teach it Infallibly; outside of
me you find the jarring opinions of men,
ever contradicting each other. But like
the sun in the heavens, I give -ever the
same light and for all men. I charge not,
for I am the pHlar. and ground of truth
itself. It is this venerable and glorious
mother who was appointed by the Son of
God to teach the nations that presents
herself to teach your children."
And as to the right of the Catholic
Church on American soil, he said:
"She teaches the natural sciences, but
she tells her pupils of the God of nature.
Herinuns and brothers teach history, but
as they teach history, history is not a
conspiracy against truth and religion.
The children are taught that Catholics
discovered America, that Catholics first
proclaimed civil and religious liberty In
America; .that Catholic missionaries did
most to convert and civilize the aborig
ines of America; that a Catholic nation
helped to gain the Independence of Amer
ica; that Catholic Commodores and Gen
erals and soldiers fought, for and bled for
'America; that Catholics are not aliens,
but at home in America, having every
right to the soil as well as every right
to all the benefits of citizenship." '

His aim was perfect and McKInnon top
pled over dead.
It transpires that Jerraud escaped from
the asylum three weeks ago, and that
since that time he has been hidden In his
mother's home In this place. He had not
been seen by any one In all that time, but
today his mother becoming alarmed at
his absence, made inquiry, and this re
vealed the fact of his having been here
since his escape from the Institution.
Jerraud's mother Is censured by every
one for harboring the insane man In her
home and for not notifying the officers. .
There Is much indignation ov'er the af
fair, and even though he is insane there
is a belief that Jerraud will be roughly
handled when apprehended. He was com

to resume administrative rights In three
provinces of Manchuria, provided that on

Empress and Princess Victoria and Louise
followed the operations in a large four
horse carriage.
Tho Emperor was in the field before 7
o'clock this morning. Tho 12,000 horses
led by the Emperor kicked up an im
mense amount of dust on the dry fields
over which they passed, which betrayed
the movements of the cavalry. The Sax
ons, who were entrenched and wlfo had
cleverly posted their artillery, received the
attack with the fire of all their machine
and other quick-firing guns in a way that
in a real war would have quickly deci
mated the Emperor's force. But the Em
peror galloped on In a whirlwind of dust
and penetrated the Saxon line. The um
pire decided that the Saxons were de
feated and caused them to retreat across
the Saale.
