The Bible in the Schssli.
Attorney General Blackburn has ren
dered a decision of great interest to the
public school boards of Oregon. It ap
pears that a teacher in one of the schools
of Washington county has been, each
morning, reading a chapter from the bi
ble and repeating the Lord’s prayer, or
compelling the pupils to repeat said
prayer, or to stand up and listen to the
teacher as she repeated the same. She
was notified by the chairman of the
board to discontinue this practice, with
out any authority from, and against the
expressed wish of the other directors.
She expelled pupils because they would
not stand up and listen to her as she re
peated the prayer. The board of direct
ors met and approved her action, but
the chairman refused to sign the miuutes
of the meeting. An appeal having been
taken to the county superintendent, that
official sustained the majority of the
board, and an appeal was taken to the
state department. Superintendent Ack
erman submitted the questions involved
to the attorney general for an opinion.
Judge Blackburn quotes the Oregon
school laws, and sections 2, 3 and 5 of
article 1 of the constitution of Oregon as
authority for religious freedom, and then
dwells at considerable length upon the
standard of morals taught in the new
testament, and the advantages to the
world, morally, if every man, woman
and child in the country would live up to
and comply with its teachings, and fol
low in the footsteps of him who is called
the son of God. He says, further, that
“while it does not appear that the teach
er was, in the first instance, directed by
the board to read a chapter each morn
ing in opeu school from the bible, yet it
does appear that the board has ratified
the act of the teacher in so doing, and
has thus established a rule on that sub
ject ......... Where the reading of a chapter
in the bible, without comment, and the
repeating of the Lord’s prayer, have
been authorized by the board of directors
of the school district, the rules thus
adopted can lie enforced by excluding
from the school for the time limited by
law the refractory pupil, and if the peo
ple of the district are not satisfied with
the rule so adopted and enforced the
remedy is in their own hands, and they
can elect a board which will adopt and
enforce a different rule.”

The official announcement of the pop
ulation of the state of Oregon gives the
state 413,536 in 1900, a gain of 31.7 per
cent in the last ten years. Yamhill coun
ty is given 13,420, theae being eleven
counties whose people outnumber those
in Yamhill. In 1890 the population of
this county was 10,692. Thus we have a
gain of 2,728 in ten years, this being
an increase of nearly 26 per cent. Mnltno*
mah Co. is first in population,with 103,-
167, and Curry county is least, with only
1,868. Benton county shows a loss of
1,944 since last censuB. Gilliam lost 399,
and Morrow 54. These losses, however,
can be accounted for by the creation of
two new counties. Lincoln and Wheeler.
