OJf THE CHURCH AND EDUCATION.
Rev. Dr. Coaler Ezpoands tba Hlssloa
of Christianity Toward Sckools.
At the First Baptist church Sunday morn
ing the paator. Rev. J. W. Conley, preached
on tho subject, "The Church and Edu
cation," taking as his text Proverbs lv:7,
"Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore
get wisdom, and with all thy getting get
understanding." A collection waa taken for
the Baptlat college at Grand Island.
. "Wisdom is not merely knowledge," said
the pastor. "One may know a great deal
may have a . college diploma or two, and
still not be very wise. Wisdom Is a spe
cial kind of knowledge. A wise man knows
the true purpose and ends of' life and
also knows what ends to employ to at
tain thla end. Knowledge is power. Wis
dom la power understood and properly di
rected. It is the province of Christianity
to bring wisdom into knowledge, to teach
men the true end of life and how to at
tain it.. Education la the training and de
velopment of the powers of the soul, but
all such training ahould be toward the
highest enda; hence all education needa
. the wisdom of the gospel.
"The first duty is that of inspiration
and incentive. There is a marked dif
ference in homes In relation to education
In some homes the children have no other
thought than that they must go to school
regularly and do faithful work, and thsy
go right on naturally, planning for acad
amy and college. In other homes the situ
ation la entirely different. School is sub
ordinated to other thloga. The children
are Irregular In their attendance, drop
out when their courae la only partially

for a higher education. It la a difference

It ia much the same witn churches.
"Every church ought to stir up its young
people to make the most possible of them

ought to be charged with an Inspiration
to worthy attainments.
"There are Important reasons why the
church ahould establish and maintain
schools of a positively religious character,
First, tha state doea not, and probably
sever will undertake fully to meet the
demands of higher education. A common
view, of the atate university Is that it

The question of an excursion to Wash

of the national organization of the Grand
Army of the Republlo la being discussed
among the members of 'that society in this
city. The encampment will not be held
until October, but arrangements will prob
ably be completed for a. Nebraska ex
cursion a month prevloua to that time.
Bald a member of the society)
We had six carloads of Nebraskans at
the encampment at Cleveland, but expect
to have many more at Washington. There
are more soldiers of the Army of the
Potomao in Nebraska than of any other
division of the army, and the session to
be held at the national capital will give
them an opportunity to visit the acenee
of their army experience. We will uae
considerable caution in aelectlng the line
over which we will travel and will ascer
tain which route will take us over the
greatest part of the country over which
the Army of the Potomac operated. If
we can secure an attendance sufficient we
111 run a special train and have atops
made at stations near the battlefields, of
the army ao that we can make short ex
cursions to those places. Wsahlngton Is
replete with Interest to the old sol
dier of the Army of the Potomac. ' Within
easy travel almost every famous battle
by that army wae fought Wo should have
at least 200 In attendance from this state
and will start the work of arranging the
excursion In time to permit all to make
arrangements to go."
The atate encampment will be .held at

and a large delegation from Douglas county
will be present.

CATHOLIC INDIAN MISSIONS

ACCUSES GOVERNMENT OF BAD FAITH
laslata that Withdrawal of Sapperl
from Deaoialaatloaal AanooateeV
to m Break of Treaty Okli
satloas with tko ladlaae. .
At 6t John's Cathollo church Sunday
morning Rev. Aloyslus Bosch, 8. J., head
of the Catholic mission of the Rosary, at
Pine Ridge reservation, spoke on the sub
ject of Indian missions and the necessity
for Individual support of those missions.
He said in part:
Before entering upon a discussion of
the subject I will give a brief history of
the Rosary mission. It was established In
1888 at the Pine Ridge reservation as a eon
tract school. The government at that time
authorized the building of the achools.by
the church and appropriated money for
their support. This mission waa built by
a member of the Drexel family of Philadel
phia, then Miss Catherine Drexel, , now
Mother Catherine, head of an order which
baa for its object the spread of the faith
among the negroes and Indians. The sup
port promised by the government continued
for about eight years, when, beginning in
1895, that support was gradually withdrawn.
The last step in taking support from the
former contract schools was when an at
torney of the United States made a ruling
that no rations should be supplied to In
dian children who attend Cathollo schools.
This law and this rule is unjust. The Cath
olic people of the United Statea pay . the
taxes as well as other citizens. We find
that the word 'non-sectarian' has been
coined to conceal an attack upon the Cath
ollo schools on the, Indian reservation. In
the government schools tne teacners give
religious training to the calldren, hold
prayer meetings and In some cases Prot
estant preachers visit the schools and gtve
Instruction. This Instruction is said to be
undenominational, but its effect can be aeen
from the fact that of forty Catholic chil
dren who attend the government school and
draw rations but one boy and two girls are
found who go to confession. '
" Blow to tho Mlesloa. 1 '
Taking the rations from the Catholic
children was a blow to us from which we
have not recovered. It makes H necessary
for the school to provide food for the pu
pils. We now have 108 pupils enrolled, six
teen sisters and two fathers at the Rosary
mission. We have to kill annually about
125 steers to provide food for them, with
vegetables and groceries In proportion.
Since the government aid has been with
drawn the support of these schools and
these pupils falls entirely upon the Cath
ollo population of the country. To sup
port these schools the archbishops of the
country organized a society which ,has for
Its object the preservation of the faith
among the Indians. The annual dues to this
society from the members is 25 cents per
year. It costs approximately $125,000. to
maintain the twenty-five Indian schools at
the different reservations in the United
States. In order to draw this amount from
the society there would have to be 400,000
members. We have In ' fact about : 50,000
members, which shows without further
words the necessities of the case. Our only
revenue comes from a comparatively small
amount set aside by Mother Catherine and
the donatlona received. The general sec
retary of the society writes me that there
are practically no funds in the treasury,
The Rosary mission. In addition to a debt
of $2,600, which is not troublesome, ' must
p7 $1,600 by October 1, and I must have
r.ome money on hand when the school opens.
Thla it tha reason for my visit here today,
N Hope for a Chaage.
"For all of the injustice of withdrawing
the rations from the Cathollo Indian chll
dren we can look for no change In this
condition, for the president of the1 United
States, usually so Just in all of his views
and actions, can see no . injustice in this,
and hla advisers are all opposed to any
change. The withdrawal of rations is really
breach of the treaty with the Indians,
for they were assured that they ahould
have rations when their lands were taken.
The law says that no support shall be
given Indians not in achoola authorised
by the government, and this has been held
to Include the Cathollo achoola, but an in
vestigation will ahow that these schools
were authorized by the government at
the time of their construction or subse
"Tha claim la made that the Indian ,1s
not worthy of civilization. He is said to
be laxy, to be a thief,' a drunkard and, to
have a lax view of the marriage bonds.
The policy of the United States has made
the Indian all of these things. It, would
do the same with a white man. .Take any
man and tell him that you will feed, him
and clothe him In the way he Is accus
tomed to, regardless of . any productive
labor oa hla part, and aee If he will not
become Idle. After giving him all things
he requires tell him to work and see how
much work he will do. It the Indian is
thief he can point to treaties broken
by the white men and land taken from him
by fraud and violence. The example would
be enough to make any man a thief. If he
la a drunkard, someone supplied the liquor.
As to hla laxity in regard to marriage, take
the atatistlcs of the divorce courte of the
United States to say nothing of tho Mor
monsand let the comparison be made. -
Not a Pleasaat gtatloa.
"It la not pleasant work upon the reser
vation. The days spent la the camps of
Indiana where dog soup ia the chief ar
ticle of food, of sick-calls over hundreds
of miles of territory made when the ther
mometer Is 38 degrees below sero; . of
trouble with swollen streams In the spring
and Icebound land In the wlner; suffering
not only personal inconvenience and peril,
but the Indifference of squawmen and In
dian alike. But we are there, cheerfully,
because we have been sent. You, know
how Father Juts of the Society, .of Jesus,
my predecessor at the mission, went Into
the hostile camp and brought into the
lines of the United States the rebel chiefs
during the last Sioux uprising. You re
member that Father Craft,' a priest, waa
almoat fatally Injured by a knife thrust
at the battle of Wounded Knee, and how
when authorized by Slgnleur Stephan to
leave our mission and take refuge within
the American lines our missionaries atayed
within the school, surrounded by warring
soldiers and within view of the burning
government buildings. Even so close aa
Omaha the work of the missionary priests
among the Indians Is little known. You
know and appreciate your missionaries,
but do not understand his work.
"The Catholics are behind in the mat
ter of raising funds. Other societies with
leas membership raise much more money.
The Cathollo population of the -United

from the experience of the library board
It.. would appear that (be rate bureau of
the lnsurancs companies has "marched up
the hill and marched down again" on the
question of rates on the library Insurance.
It is the custom of the president of the
board to keep the Insurance policies effec
tive upon the contents of the library. When
he received the bills for- the renewal pre
miums a week ago President Lewis 8. Reed
saw that' the rate had been advanced 25
per cent and demurred to the bill. He laid
the matter ' before other members of the
board' and each was ready to atand by htm
In his protest, even to the point of drop
ping the policies and carrying their own In
The matter was presented to the rate
bureau and the manager Informed that the
board would not atand for tbe advance. He
was told that the current report was to the
effect that the 25 per cent advance promul
gated only applied te mercantile risks and
that the contents of the public library were
not merchandise In any sense of the word.
Tbe manager took tbe matter under con
sideration and aooa answered that a mistake
had been made by one of tbe clerks, and the
new policies are being written at the same
rate as of old. .-".'
