Among the Churches

Current Notes

Wisconsin. —The attitude of the daily papers continues to become more and more friendly. There were fewer adverse references to Christian Science, Christian Scientists, or Mrs. Eddy published in the daily press during the period just past than ever before. Every correction of adverse comment offered to the daily press was courteously published. Some of the religious papers continue to attack Christian Science, and though four letters of correction were submitted, not one was published. However, we feel that the better class of religious papers does not attack Christian Science or give space to such attacks.

A bill to amend the Workmen's Compensation Act to permit workmen under that act to have Christian Science treatment in case of injury was introduced. This bill was given a hearing before the Senate committee on corporations, and also before the assembly committee on public welfare. The bill passed both houses by a large majority, only to be vetoed at last by the Governor, the Senate refusing to pass over his veto.
