The Act Establlshina a Department
Is Passed bu ths
Commissioner Moses Offers AH
Amendment Prohibiting Teaching
of Religious Doctrines in School
Buildings Judgo Tnft Offers a
Substitute Permitting Tri-Weokljr
Visits of Priests.
By Kclusitc Wire from The Associated Presl.
Manila, Jan. 21. Tho act establish'-
lng the department of public Instruc
tion wns unanimously passed by thfl
Philippine commission today, after a
debate between Commissioner Most
and Judge Taft over the section per
mining religious Instruction In school
The commissioners, originally, 'wero
unanimous In favor of the section, but
Commissioner Moses beenmo convinced
that it wns not wise, and today he of
fered an amendment prohibiting the
teaching of religious doctrines In school
buildings. He declined the commission
would dlsiegaid Its Instructions con
cerning the ccptiratlon of church and
state if the "cpiestlonable provision"
was enacted. The commissioner char
acterized us groundless the fears that
Catholic children would not attend the
public schools unless tellglous instruc
tions were permitted. He said the ex
perience with the Philippine schools
hail nhendy demonstrated this.
Hefei ring to argument of the central
Catholics In favor of Catholic Instruc
tors exclusively, Commissioner Moses
Insisted that a compromise was Inad
visable when one of tho parties was
pre-dlsposed against a compromise.
Judge Taft's Substitute.
Judge Taft offered a substitute per
mitting the exchange trl-weckly visits
byprlestsand ministers to pupils whose
patents deslied that their children re
ceive stioii Instructions, and preset Ib
Ing the dismissal of teachers who at
tempt to Influence pupils lellglously.
nnd the suspension of tho privilege of
pi tests und ministers whose teachings
create dlsloyulty or dlsordei.
Concerning the alleged disobedience
of the administration's Instructions,
Judge Tnft said the question would be
whether such use of school buildings
would Involve a tax on the people. He
cited the facts that the school build
ings In use weto being used for politi
cal and religious purposes, notwith
standing the opposing attitude of the
Kedeial party leaders. Thejudgo said
he did not believe a majoilty of the
people or of the party weie opposed
to It. He belleied the opposition wns
caused chlelly by fear of ecclesiastical
control eisy. The judge did not believe
the hierachry of the church would ap
pioie of the radical propositions of thp
coutinl Catholics. If experience pioved
the wisdom of lepe.illng the section It
would at least be utter the government
had shown that It Is neither pio-Pio-testant
Commissioner Ido voted with Com
missioner Moses against Judge Taft on
the substitute, explaining that he cpiDS
tloned whether the substitute would
nccompllsh the purpose sought. After
the rejection of the substitute the bill
wan passed unanimously.
