Ecclesiastical Education Ircfurrcd to Secular Com ment on tliu IJchring Sea Correspon DlnlruIndorsed Some Further The Ilaiiliruptcy Bill Passed by tho House Official Jltems WASHINGTON CITY The discus sion of the Indian appropriation bill in the senate yesterday brought up the religious question us applied to the education of the Indians The amendment under consid eration vos one increasing the appropria tion for the supportof Indian schools from tl DO 000 to and the peculiarity of the debate was that several senators fa rored denominational education rather than secular In other words reversing the principles of education obtaining in this country so far as tho Indians are concerned and antagonizing the tendency of the government to abolish denomina tional education and supplant it with na tional noneccleHlastical schools Vest Commends the Jesuiits Vest opposed the amendment as the in troduction of a system intended to abolish denominational education among the In dians He spoke of an official visit which he had made to an Indian agency seven or eight years ago and of his observation of the work of the Roman Catholic church in educating the Indians The Jesuits had succeeded better than any other people living in the education of Indians Whatever if that was the proper he might have against the Society of Jesus he had to say that much us nn educated nrotestant If the Kofrmn Catholics wcro doing better in educating the Indians than otiier denom inations he was in favor of the Catholics and if the Presbyterians or the Baptists were doing better he was in favor of them Koines Success in the Field But he was convinced that the Roman Catholics were far more efficient among the Indians than any Protestant denomi nation could be No other denomination could take thoir place because the In dians like other people emerging from barbarism had received religious irnpros uons that were permanent He did not care whether it might be culled religion or superstition The Indians were Roman Catholics and would remain so Teller also spoke of the Roman Catholics as the most successful educators of Indians Jones of Arkansas argued that cheap contract schools ought to be maintained and no feeling of sectarian prejudice ouyht to be allowed to operate against n church simply because in had shown a disposition to go forward and spend more money ami exercise inoro thought and la bor and diligence in the good work than other churches or denominations had done Unrln Snys a Good Word for llom Davis also opposed the amendment and spoke of the nlFoTts of Komnn Catholic missionaries at tho Black feet agency These good people he said had applied to those philanthropic ladies tho Misses Drexil of Philadelphia and had obtained which they had expended in n school building recently completed These men were now to be told not only that there was to lie a government school put on that reservation in competition with them but that they were to have no con tract whatever for the education of the Indians as had been plainly implied In the correspondence between the com missioner of Indian affairs and the per sons In authority in the enterprise Iolioy of the Administration In advocating an amendment to strike out items aggregating SJO 000 for educat ing Indians at St Josephs school Reussa laer Ind and the Holy Family school Blackfeet agency II out Dawes said the object was to keep the appropriation down to the amount now in the bill as far as possible He referred to the controversy when the present management of the In dian bureau cnuio in brought about by tho inquiry made by other denominations as to the discrepancy between the amounts spent on their institutions and the amount spent on Homnn Catholic schools The present bureau favored divorcing the gov ernment from parochial schools but had found that this was not feasible The com mittee had thought it best not to enlarge the connection of the government with these institutions AMsoclntinn of Church and State Reagan and George argued against the association of church and state and in reply Davis said that this was a very seri ous business matter The government had n right to take advantage of the facil ities which tho pioneers of Christianity offered to it As to the association of church and state it was only when the in fluences of Christianity had bem brought to bear on the minds of the Indians that they had made tho least step towards civilization Call a member of the com mittee on appropriations opposed the amendment and eulogized the work of the Catholic church in the matter of Indian Tho senate rejected the amend ment THE BEHRING SEA DIPLOMACY fcallslmrys Last Proposition The objection which Salisbury made in reply to Elaines suggestion that the Brit ish

government from acceding except as part of a general scheme of settlement the condition of which are that the whole matter be left to arbitration that pending the award all interference with British vessels shall cease and that if the award is averse to the contentions of the United States that government will compensate British subjects for the loss sustained by compliance with the proposed proclama tion These conditions are declared indis pensable National Bank Circulation WAsrnxGTOX CITY July laid before the senate Wednesday eletter from the comptroller of the currency in regard to the
