Prof. WICIEIRSAIIM, Superi4endant
of Public Instructicins of this State
has ciretully prepared a bill co!er
ing tails subject which will be pre
sented to the coming eession of. the
Legislature. In considering the bill
one of the first points to be settled
should be to ascertain whether it
permits sush interference with chil
dren as to usurp the rightful and
wholesome authoritytt parents. The
Commcogwealth has adopt a certain
principle in the matter of education.
It assumes the ground that it is in
cumbent that' the chldren of the citi
zens shall and must be educated.
This fact is clearly involved ik our
school systerst What follows? Mr.
WICXERSIIAM, who has made this
system his constant study for more
than twenty years, and who has de
veloped its operations and iltrength
ed its , powers more than, any other
Jinn Connected with freekducation,is
clearly of the opinion that the Stste
has the right to enforce education It
has exercised the right of using the
public revenues to further free edu
cation, and - having enacted certain
laws to perfect that system, why may
it not still further extend its author
ity to compel every parent or guard
i'an to send the children or Child
within his custody to ,school for a cer
tain period' each year until the pu
pil reach au age when he or she, can
with properity, be put to work. That
it is dangerous to.,neglect the educa
tion of children is clearly demon
strated in the working of communi
ties. Boys and girls;who grow up in
ignorance and idleness are sure to
become vicious, depraved and degrad
ed. Those who do nut reach this
oindition are the exception; while
the educated and the trained in the
inclusrries are the reverse of this,
growl ngvp to lead useful lives, those
not doing so, after4eeeiving the bene
fit of anleducation being Ile excep-
tion. It is of' course not beComing

Superintendent Wicioissaast has no

boys, which, if carried into practical

that Major HENBY HOWELV I of Sofr

fess of relining petroleum without
the agency of heat. A sample mow

ary claim for this process is not mere
ly that the means used are entirely
mechanical, but also that there is no
production of gasline- or bensine,
and_ the !entire product is standard
white illtiminating oil, far superior to
the oil - refined under oil methods.
This new process, if what is claimed
for it be true, is just precisely what
the producers have beenlooking for.
It will be a saving of at least $120,-
000,000. per annum to the region, and
will settle the little difference now

understandingthat he should "mingle

By a vote of 135 ayes, tc4ol nays,
the U. S. House of Representatives
has passed a bill introduced by Mr
REAGAN, of Texas, to regulate inter
state commerce and to prohibit'un-
just discriminations by the common
carriers of the country. \
Under the bill all, such companies
are, required "to furnish, without dis.
crimination, the same facilities for
carriage, delivery and storage of
property of like character, and 'to
perform for all persons the same
kind of service connected With the
contemporaneous transportation of
property with equal expedition and
without discriniination." It makes
rebates and freight poolings unlaw
ful ; provides heavy penalties for all
sorts of hocus-pocusing of freight
charges, and compels the posting in
all depots of schedules, whi3h shall
not be changed except with thirty
day's notice. It also prohibits any
greater charge per mile for abort dis
tances than for long.

Suppose a man shall apply for member
ship in .one of the Christian Churches, and
that ho is asked by the chairman of, the,
meetine if he is si Mason, k .and he shall'
ply that he is; and Suppose be is told that
some of the brethren think that Masonry \
a bad institution, and in order that ail
may know what are the facts in the case;
, and be able to judge correctly auto wheth
er it ought to be toleratedin the Church,
be will please tell,them Just what Masonry
is, •and what it requires, who Mall say
that this request is not reasonable?._ HAS
'not the Church a right to know that the
practice of its , members is in ' hartroLy
with its principles and their covenant Ob. I
ligations? The very idea of a Church
covenant implies that every member shall
submit his life to the inspection of the
Church. Nay, more '
• it is one of the ex
press agreements of the covenant that
each *member shall exercise this right in
watching over his brethren and submit
ting his Wit° their watch-bare., If you
take away lola right, you have destroyed
the Church covenant; you have destroyed
Church fellowship, which can only last
while the covenant is kept, and you have
ckstroyed the Church !
Organized sectarianism assumes to take
*way this right from t e Church, hence is
tit:telly inconsistent with membership ID
it. 'ln a case like the supposed one, the
man can not tell the Church what Mason
ryjs,rand still be a Mason, and of course
the chtireh can tot consistently receive
him. T., enter the Church he must cove
nant to submit to the =watch-care and dis
cipline of the Church. To enter the 'Ma
sonic Lodge be has 'taken another cove
nant, 'confirmed by an oath, that forbids
him to tell anytbicg in reference to the
Who can fail to see that the tiro cove
nants require exactly opposite things, that
the one commands him to WI the Chtirch
while tie other sweare•him not to do it;
and hence, that lie cannot keep the one
without discarding the other.
.. How reasonable ,then that - the Church
make it a condition of entering into cov
enant with any and every member that
he shall renounce all other covenants in
consistent with -his Church Covenant?
Hoti reasonable that the right or, insOec--
don that the Church has sokmnli\prom

to deny this - right is to renounce' the

they use charts, skulls, and manakins,
and make people believe that they, have
hitherto known nothing of themselves.
Now, Mr."Editur, we are bound to pro
test against all this as an invasion of our
sacred rights of individual liberty. Must
we submit to be controlled by these self
appointed laWgivers, ait to how we shall
build houses to obtain the best ventilation,
and what we shall eat; and how long we
shall wag on itws at each meal? I ask
if we may not do with our own as we will,
and eat and drink what we please when
we have this from the Master, affirming
"It is nut that which gceth into the
mouth that defileth the man?"
But I do not intend to argue with these
reformers as to my right to eat and drink
and wash as I please: ,It is boldly declar
ed by these new light philosopher's, that
a man has no right to have the dyspepsia
and be sick - . I take direct issue with
thorn upon this point, and confidently as
sert it is our-duty-to be sick, at least a
little sick. How else could we fulfill the
'Divine injunction , to " vitit the sick," if
there were no sick to visit?
Butif these visionary enthusiasts should
succeed in restoring the human family to
a healthy condition, what would become
oft physicians, pile and patent medi
cine anufacturers, druggists, and all en

thrown upon the cold charity of the
world ?\ There are hundreds of millions of money

Some of these men st.nd high among se

The 00 Producers Union vs. The People.
Editor lieoorter :
Sin —I judge from what I see and read,
that an eifoit is being made to control the
action of our, 'represeutatives at Harris
burg in favor of the objects sought to be
attained by thii` Oil Producers Union,"
one of the most gigantic combinations of
wealth ever organized in this State. The
declared object of 'the combination is to
put up the price of kerosene oil, and with
its large wealth and influeritial members
scattered over this State and many more
whose homes are in' the larger cities
and towns of the neighboring States of
New York and Ohio, sought last winter
and I suppose will this, to dictate legisla
tion which they allege will put up the
price of oil used by almost everybody, for
lights outside •of the cities `and:.large
towns; and intowos where they'have gas
it is much tried because of its cheapness.
One of theeiguments used by this auto.
credo combination of money is thit the
" Standard Oil C 0.." another large corn.
bination of wealth that had its origin like
the first named, among the oil speculators
in the oil regions, is a monopoly. I - can,
see no difference in the character of these'
men. in either of these combinations.
They are both rich almost beyond meas.
ure, 'triad equally • unscrupulous in their
opposition . ; each looking - to their own in.
terests alone. But whatever the motive
.that controls these mammoth institutions,
we are getting burning oil at very reason
able rate at retail for fifteen cents pee gal
lon. This is
.a shade lower than I. bare
ever been able to get it before. If this
be true, and Ude net think this fact can
be gainsaid, I can see no good reason why
ourrepresentatives - should be commanded
to give special support to either in ad.

used in this county alone, (saying nothing
about the whole State,) would make a
tax of five thousand dollars per aneum to
