Bishop Moran on Education.
[per press association.]
Dunbdin, May 26. On Sunday evening Bishop Moran was presented by his congregation with a congratulatory address on the occasion of the Cathedral being freed from debt, and his own seventy-second birthday, which took place on Saturday. In replying he took occasion to strongly denounce the wrong done to the Catholics, by the present system" of education. He urged every Catholic to stedfastly refuse to vote for every candidate, no matter who he was, who refused to concede justice to Catholic schools. He asserted, that a subsidy to Catholic schools would^promote economy, pointing out that if ten thousand children
attending Catholic schools were withdrawn and sent to public schools, the cost to the colony would at once be £43,000, whereas the subsidy proposed last year of £2 per head would only come to £20,000.
