What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Th» Hock river conference of ihe M. K. church, comprising the northern and .southern portion oj Illinois including Chicago, held at Joliet, September 29th. adopted a report on the public school ques­ tion which comained the follow ing: “ Our public schools are the conservators and safeguards of the nations. No system of parochial or church schools can meet^the demands of the general public school instruction. The princi­ ples on which our public school system rests are the outgrowth and in harmony with the priuci pies of progressive interestsof the government. The system it­ self deserves and had hitherto re-‘ ceived the approval and coopera­ tion of all classes of our citizens. It has without question done much to give us a distinctly intelligent national character and to give us a national and most important po litical and linguistic unity. That educational system is now, endan­ gered. Constant attacks o f the Roman - Catholic- hierarchy^^iif our pubiic schodl system, and the persistence of that great ecclesias- ticism in demanding of its adhdr- enta the withdrawal of their cuiff dieu from the public schools ind their undivided attendance upom parocliial schools is slowly.. but surely arraying au un-Àmérican antagonism against the most cher ished institution of.our commou country. A ll concessions have. been mad» that can be consistent- »! . ^ % ly made to preserve the national character o f our public school sys tern. These concessions have uot satisfied the hierarchy which de­ mands that religion be' made the basis of public education and de­ mands that said religious instruct ion shall be wholly under its own control. This demand Jias been Voiced in the pope’s evangelical councils and conventions at Bal­ timore, of Roman Catholic lay­ men and clergy, ànd the utteran­ ces and action of the Roman Cath­ olic German clerical convention just closed at Buffalo. The de­ mand is now formulated in these ductive utterances of the Buffalo convention which announces its purpose to secure home rulo in all matters pertaining to the educa­ tion of the children of the nation. We stop not now to speak of the other features o f its plains for the disintegrating of our natioual ■unity in language and character. We know well what its demand for home rule in educational mat­ ters means and we reply as follows: Resolved, Fir-t, that we declare emphatically for American home rule in all matters of public edu­ cation and the sustaining of our public school system. Second, that home rule in our state and national affairs forbibs the interference of any foreign pope, priest, pot.enate or prince in our domestic affairs or the further­ ance of any foreign scheme for the disintegration of our national unity in language or in education­ al interests. Third—That home rule in mat­ ters of public education shall mean no interference of any ecclesiasti­ cal,sectarian. or sectional organiza­ tions in the administration ol our. educational affairs and no ap­ propriation of public moneys to the sustaining ofschools controlled tor ecclesiastical or sectarian pur poses, Fourth—That, we will seek, to cause such enactments by consti­ tutional arid legislative provisions as shall strengthen our public school system and make it more Than ever worthy of the, ;/su pppi^ ^of'every:^arnest, lpyal, moral pa­ triotic, and Christian citizen who wishes to see a free ballot in the hands of an intelligent, free, pa­ triotic, and pro-perous people. A Living Curiosity. A printer may have a bank and quoins and never be worth a cent; have caps and small caps and have neither wife nor children; others may run, but he gets along faster by setting. He may make impres­ sions without eloquence, use the lye without offending and still tell the truth. Though others can not stand wmle they set, he can set standing,^atid do both at the same time; may use furniture and have! no dwelling?ttiay make and put away pi, yetuever see nor eat a pie. A human being he may be a rat at the same time; may handle a shooting iron, yet know naught of gun, cannon or pistol, fie may lay his form oh the bed, yet be compelled to sleep on the floor; may use a . dagger without shed* ding blood; from earth may han­ dle star-; and he may have a sheep’s-foot and never be de­ formed.
