i AN GPEN LEHER TO THE PUBLIC I
In. issuiug his campaign literature as a candidate for the House of Representatives, one of the
Democratic candidates for this office from the City District lias accused me of taking a fling at
the Holy Bible, as he terms it. during the last session of the Legislature. I feel that in justice
to myself 1 should resent this accusation and explain my position to the public in reference to this
During the session ot the Legislature of 1 !Hbeing at that time by your grace a member of the
lower House from the City District, a bill was introduced in that Body', providing that every Public
School Teacher throughout the State be compelled to read ten verses from the Bible each morning
without comment, no pro\ ision being made therein «•» to what Bible or what portion of the Bibie
should be read, leaving it optional with the teacher of each class to read that version of the Bible
that appealed to his or her particular religious belief. Many addresses were made during the
deliberation against the Bill on this account. It was argued that in view of the fact that all tin
different religious sects being represented in a public school that the reading of a certain version
of the Bible by the teacher would cause religious dissention among the parents of the children
believing in another version of the Good Book. Our forefathers in forming the Constitution of
these United States in their wisdom, provided that every man shall have the right to worship the
lx>rd according to the dictates of his own conscience. As the public schools are public property
maintained at the expense of all the people irrespective of creed or sect, it was contended that
certain portions of the Bible, that do not'conflict with the religious belief of the various creeds
represented in the public schools, should be designated in the measure: that it was un-American
and unfair in the shape in which it was presented. This argument appealed to me to be just.
I have always been a firm believer in the injunction of the Master who said '"render ye unto
Caesar the things that are Caesar's and unto God the thing?that are God's" At the time Christ
uttered these words Caesar was the State and I believed that he had in mind the separation of
Church'and State. The public schools being a thing of the State, I believed it to be best that
nothing of a sectarian nature should enter into them, excepting the reading of the Lord's Prayer,
the Psalms or the Proverbs. In casting my vote against the Bill as it stood. I had absolutely
no thought of discrediting the Good Book. On the contrary I have the highest regards for the
same, and 1 try hard to live up to its precepts. I believe that when the Bible is read and taught
it should be done with the revere ace due to the Good Book in the proper place, the Home, the
Church and the Sunday School, and that to the youth in particular it should be thoroughly
explained. I might say that 1 am a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Knights
of Pythias, the Loyal Order of the Moose and the Benevolent and Protective (srder of Dlks. flu
basic principle of each being the Holy Bible. I would surely be an inconsistent member if I
failed to accept its precepts. Marcus Antonius in opening his address over the body of Caesar
said "the evil that men do lives after them: the good often is interred with their bones." So
it appears to be with all public men, their many good deeds are easily forgotten and their errors
are charged against them with interest.
In conclusion I might call the attention of my detractors to a quotation from St. Paul, who
said, "though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels and I have not charity I am like
sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal."'
