THE MOENIKG OREGOJSIAN, "WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 3 SOS. SPEECH MAKES STIR Bishop O'Reilly on Education of the Youth. PROCLAIMS RIGHTS. OF CHURCH 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 heaven." In regard to the right of the church to control the education of the young he said: "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."
