May the convention of the Gorman Catholic societies this morn ing several speeches were made 11 J Spannhorst of St Louis said the Bennett law presented a political question that the Catholics could not ignore because it di rectly atrected the welfare of their institu tions Flasch in an address referred to the Bennett law and upheld the right of the church to pro into politics when its interests were attacked Me was followed by Bishop Kataor of Green Bay who attacked the Ben nett law In the bitterest manner lie said the law practically denied the right of a child w obey its parents by putting its claims before that of the parents 1 he friends of the he said tell ns the child has rights which the State must see ac corded it but the parents have more inter est in the child thantho State The Gov ernor and his little German boy will bo well taken care ofby their parents if tlie State will let them As the Bishop proceeded he warmed to the subject and fairly brought his hearers to their feet by the intensity of his manner He became angry pathetic sarcastic by turns Our manner of teaching hngnsn they tell us is what they are ho exclaimed but this is not so English is now taught in our schools but jl the State has the right to tell us that we must teach English it will soon bo telling us what wo shall eat and what shall be on the table for the family dinner They arc all of a class laws whether in Wisconsin Illinois or Massachusetts They attempt to interfere with personal and parental rights Carried out to their logical conclusion they would be very dangerous to the church and to society This Bennett the Bishop continued was conceived in the minds of freethinkers and those opposed to the Catholic Churcii and her Tie was told recently he said by a Mason that tho Bennett was first suggested by the Masons The man said i could prove it to you if I did not put so high a value on my hcad that the Bennett law was first agitated in tho Gntnd Lodge of Masons in the State of The
