“Brooksville, Ky., Dec. 5. - Judge Harbeson, of the Circuit Court of Bracken County, rendered a decision in the case in which the Rev. Thomas Hackett, a Catholic priest, brought injunction against the School Trustees of Brooksville for asking that that teachers of the public schools be restrained from reading the Bible and offering prayer in schools, on the ground that it is in violation of the constitution.  Harbeson dismissed the petition.”
The Record of the American Bible Society, 1903
