in danger of incurring the public censure
of the civilized world through a recur

We quote from a pamphlet in our pos
The Grand Jury of Henry county,
Tennessee found indictments for working
Sunday against five members of the
Seventh-day Adventist church who live
near Springville, Tenn. The cases were
tried at Pari*, Tenn., May 27, 1892, be
fore Judge W. H. SwiggarL The de
fendants did not choose counsel, hut ap
peared in their own behalf.
An illustration ot the defense of
the accused, the statement ofW.S. Low-
whose case was heard first, is here
“I would like to say to the jury, that,
has been stated, I am a Seventh-day
Adventist. I observe the seventh day
of the week as the Sabbath. I read my
Dible, and my convictions on the Bible
that the seventh day of the week is
the Sabbath, which comes on Saturday.
I observe that day the best I know how.
Then I claim the God-given right to
days of labor. I have a wife and four
children, and it takes my labor six days
to make a living. I go about my work
quietly, do not £make any unnecessary
noise, but do my work as quietly as pos
sible. It has been proved by the testi
mony of Mr. Fitch and Mr. Cox, who
live around me, that they were
turbed. Here I am before the court to
answer for this right that I claim as a
Christian. I am a law-abiding citizen,
believing that we should obey the laws
of the state; but whenever they conflict
with my religious convictions and the
bible, I stand and choose to serve the
law of my God rather the laws of state.
I do not desire to cast any reflections
upon the state, nor the officers and au
thorities executing the law. I leave the
case with you.”
On refusing to pay their fines which
were #25 each, these four men were
lodged in jail'June 3, where they re
mained from forty-five to fifty-three days
each. The sheriff, Mr. Blackmore, a
kind-hearted man, was loth to take them
to jail, and remarked to the judge that
the convicted were conscientious in the
matter, to which the judge replied, “Let
them educate their consciences by the
laws of Tennessee.” This statement is
strangely out of harmony with tlie con
stitution which the judge is sworn to up
hold, which says, “No human authority
can in any case whatever control
terfere with the rights of consc
and that “no preference shall ever be
given by law to any religious establish
ment or mode of worship.”
Not satisfied with this punishment,
the prosecution,Rafter a diligent search
among obsolete statutes and decisions,
finally arrived at the conclusion that the
county jail was the county work-house,
and consequently, on the morning of
July 18, three of them were marched
through the streets of Paris in company
with three colored criminals, and com
pelled to labor at shoveling on the streets.
These cases are not the first convic
tions of the kind under the Tennessee
statute. In 1886, W. H. Parker, another
Seventh-day Adventist, spent seventy-
four days in the same jail for Sunday
work. At the same time James Stemm,
judication, the better for the honor of
Tennessee and every state ridden by Bad
laws, passed in violation of individual
liberty.—Chicago Daily Globe.
Let us be careful how we let in camel’s
nose of religious legislaton, lest the brute
crowd his bulky form in and occupy the
whole shop. If the laws by which these
were legally imprisoned be a right-
law, then may any state, nation or
country set up a religious creed and en
force it; then France treated properly the
Huguenots; Russia the Jews; and early
New England and Virginia the Baptists
and Quakers. Protestant America had
better be careful how she lays founda-
tions for other men to build upon. Rome
has as good a right to build in her way
as we have in our way.—Church Bulletin
(Baptist), South Chicago.
It is high time for the community in
which Mr. King lives, to discipline its
moral sense, and for his State to re-ar
range its laws in conformity with that
principle of individual liberty which lies
at the foundation of Americrn institu
tions. The principle involved is simple,
and its application plain. The State has
nothing to do with religion, except to
protect every citizen in his religious lib
erty, It ha* no more right to prescribe
the religious observance of Sabbaths and
ami holy days, than to order sacraments
ami to ordain creeds.—New York World.

TEACHERS MAY LOSE THEIR PAY.
Captain Brad well, (hr School CommIc
•Oonrr, Lays Dawn the Law to
Captain 8. I>. Bradwell, state school
commissioner, issued a circular letter
yesterday which will make a stir among
the teachers and boards of education
•er the state.
The commissioner has embodied some
important features of the school law in
the form of instructions to county boards
of education. Under his construction of
the law, a number of studies are illegally
pursued. History, for instance, is not
prescribed by the state law and teachers
who have history classes are liable to
forfeit their pay for all students who are
taking it. Captain Bradwell does not
approve this, but it is the law. He be
lieves that history should be taught, but
the law is explicit on what shall l»e
These instructions bring out clearly
the hardships of the present law and arc
calculated to create a sentiment which
will compel its modification hy amend
Captain Bradwell advocates a uniform
system of text books for the entire state.
Now each county board adopts its own
books. There lias been too much man
ipulation in getting the books changed
and the state school commissioner wants
that prevented. Georgia’s schoolbooks
in use represent a total investment of
#800,000. Every year the parents have
to spend $300,000 to purchase new books.
A uniform system for the state would
save the parents $200,000 a year.
Here is the commissioners letter:
To the County School Commissioners
of Georgia: It is made my duty to
transmit to the subordinate school offi
cers such instructions as 1 may deem
necessary for the faithful and efficient
execution of the school laws. I consider
this an opportune time to issue, through
you, to the county beards of education,
instructions relative to textbooks for use
in the common schools, as inquiries and
complaints from school board officers,
teachers, patrons and pupils come to
this department almost every day. While
I have nothing to do with the selection
ot textliooks, I am charged with the ad
ministration of this law as well as other
laws pertaining to the common schools.
The question is not whether the law re
quiring county uniformity is good or
bad, hut as long a* it is the law it is my
province to see that it is properly ad
ministered, and—if it found to be de
fective—to recommend to the law-mak
ing power such alterations and amend
ments as in my judgment will be to the
interests of the-common school system.
This will be done at the proper time.
From tha school laws mainly section
23; I deduce the following rulings
. The county board of education has
the exclusive right to prescribe what
text-books and books of reference shall
be used in the common schools. The
county school commissioner has neither
vote nor voice in the selection of the
book*; nor is the board under any legal
obligation to consult teachers, patrons
agents. This power is delegated to the
board alone, and the board must shoul
der thejentire responsibility.
2 It is made mandatory. The law
says:” That the county board of educa
tion shall prescribe.” boards refusing
neglecting to prescribe textbooks are d
relict in their duty.
4. The board has no right to prescribe
textbooks outside of the branches speci
fically mentioned by the legislature
constituting the curriculum of the corn-
schools, viz; Orthography, read
ing, writing, English grammer, geogra
phy and arithmetic. Any board which
has prescribed history, physiology, song
book o f any kind, no matter how elemen
tary in its compilation, has transcended
its power, and such prescription must be
revoked. The law makers have defined
the “elementary branches of an English
education only,” and neither you
hare any right to go beyond the bounds
they hare set. The board has no power
recommend; that term is never used in
5. There are three limitations to be
observed by the board in the exercise of
(1.) “The Bible shall not be excluded
from the common or public schools of
The proper construction of this provi
so is a matter of Tery grave importance,
for this is the only place in the common
school laws where the Bible is directly
ailnded to. The exclusion of the Bible
from the schools by the board is posi
tively prohibited, and any board that has
made any requirement that the Bible
shall not be used either by teacher or
pupil, is in open violation of the law, and
such requirement should be immediately
withdrawn. The use of the Bible is per
missible, not mandatory, and the law
leaves it to the option of the teacher.
(2.) “When the text ltooks are pre-
scribed, they shall not be changed for
five years thereafter, except by a three-
fourths vote of all the board.”
This proviso fixe* the period the pre
scribed books are to continue in use, and
a change cannot be made without the
votes of four members of the hoard. If
the change is legally made it ean be
done as often as the tionrd may see pro
per ; and there is no restriction as to
notifying book agents, publishers, teach
ers or the public generally. This is an
absolute grant of power, if it is exercised
in a legal manner, f hold that it is nec
essary to have a meeting of the board—
not the consent in writing of the indi
vidual member of the board,
It is necessary that this action making
a change in the textbooks should he
taken at a regular meeting, or at a meet
ing called for the purpose, in which the
object of the call is mentioned. The
change can only hold good tor the l»al-
ance of the unexpired period of five years.
A second period of five years is not a
change, but a new prescription, and
therefore would require only a majority
vote. When a contract is made, it should
be “for five years unless changed by a
three-fourths vote of the board.” This
contract as well as others should be
signed by the county school commission
er as agent for the lioard. There is no
necessity for the board to sign it. The
prescription of books is not a subject
matter of review by the grand jury, un
less it can lie shown from the exercise of
that power, that members of the lioard
are liable to the charge of “inefliciency,
incapacity, general neglect of duty.
(3.) “The county I wards shall not lie
permitted to introduce into the schools
any text or miscellaneous lwok of a sec
tarian or sectional character.”
It is history which is mainly subject
criticism on account of its sectionalism
but history is ruled out in the preseript-
of liooks, as it is not in the curricu
lum of tha common schools. Sectional
ism may sometimes appear in the read
ing liooks and against such liooks boards
of education are warned. Sectarianism
may sometimes appear in the same liooks
il great care should lie exercize*l by
the 1 wards in this partieular also. The
state does not allow any partieular de
nominational doctrine or tenet to lie
taught in the schools, hut she does not
only allow, hut require that morality
shall lie taught and enforced, liotli by
precept and example. I’roof of good
moral character is a requisite before a
teacher can obtain license to teach.
The board has the same authority
to prescrilie books of reference. But such
books are chiefly for the guidance of the
teacher in tlie elucidation of principles
the best plans and methods of im
The county school commissioner is
charged with the duty of seeing that none
but the pjescribed textbooks are used.
8. No teacher shall receive pay for any
pupil who is allowed to use any other than
the prescribed text books. This applies
to the individual pupil and not to the
whole school. The teacher is entitled to
his pay for those pupils who do use the
prescribed book*. In the payment of a
teacher’s account, tlie county (school com
missioner in auditing the account should
deduct therefrom the proper proportion
for each pupil using other books, whether
the contract is for salary or pro rata.
9. Among the requisites for eligibility
to membership on the board, great stress
is placed upon the following: No publish-
of school books, nor any agent for such
publisher, nor any person who shall be
pecuniarily interested in the sale of school
books, shall be eligible for election as a
member of any board of education or as
county school commissioner of any county
in this state.” It follows that whatever is
disqualification before election is pro
hibited after election and is a just cause
of removal from office.
10. In the case of county line schools,
the prescribed books of the county where
the schoolhouse is located mast be the

which receive aid from the state except
