The wide misapprehension that obtains
concerning the meaning of words in ordi
nary and daily use is not often realized.
But when those who aspire to teach our
children come up to examination, and a
rather small class of them manages to
blunder thirty or forty times in half as
many minutes, one is apt to conclude
that more people do not understand the
meaning of ordinary words than is gen
erally believed. Certainly ono must set
tle to the judgment that there is either a
scarcity of dictionaries or of good stock
There was a class of ambitious teach
ing people before tho County Board yes
terday in Sacramento, and they managed
to mako thirty of forty blunders with a
facility unparalleled and that ought to
disgrace them. If people who claim to
be competent to teach cannot off-hand
define correctly and fully every one of
the words given below, they are not qual
ified for the office they seek to fiD. Of
course no one person mado all the errors
we quote; they are the cream of all the
blunders committed by tho class. But
we undertake to say that not one of thorn
should have been committed.
For instance, what right has any per
son to a certificate of qualification as a
teacher of any grade who defines obesity
as "a bow," or the other person who said
it was "improper language," or the third
who defined it as "courtesy." Choler
was defined as "to snatch"; paricide as
"killing something"; billingsgate, as
"water in the bottom of a ship," a defini
tion, by the way, if inaccurate, at least
moving in an odorously right direction.
Humidity was delined "peaceful,"
"calm"; caliber, "one who scribes"; cari
cature, "small in character." Environ,
the board was told by one, meant "envi
ous," and by another "irritated." Our
Christian friends wili not feel that the
person who defined demagogue as "one
that professes religion," is certain of
eternal salvation under present condi
tions, and logicians will bo more amused
than amazed that a teacher should define
hypothesis as "the longest side of a tri
angle." Ingenuous was interpreted to
mean "grateful," and vitiate "to make
vital," and another gave to paper this
wonderful definition "certain rules a per
son must go through to be a member of
society." Doctors will be excited to
mirth by learning that in the opinion of
someone aspiring to teach the young idea
how to shoot, mercenary means "the
place where medicine is kept," and medi
caid is one who "deals in medicines," by
which token the physicians can poke fun
at the apothecaries.
So the list runs on. Indigenous, "not
dignified"; arrogate, "averago"; agrarian,
"a combatant"; and ono wrote that anti
septic meaiib "to take before," while allu
vial means "round," and cursory "that
which is a curse." This lastiwasnot, how
ever laughable, so bad as that of the as
piring pedagogue who defined benignant
as "uncivilized," nor so unpardonably
stupid as the candidate who gave a defini
tion for nocturnal, bjr which it was de
clared to mean "every threo months."
Arable was delined as "that which may
be read"; effervesce, "respect"; guerdon,
"that which girds"; erratic, "rational";
hypothecate, "to make ridiculous"; pres
put on extra work," and "a robe";
reciprocity, "that which is brought before
the head'; urbanity, "profanity"; com
pendium, "reference to writing," and so
on. But tho best of all remains, and we
■übmit that despite lexicographers, good
usage end all else, the ambitious one
brilliant genius was right who defined
celibacy as "unsoundness of mind."
FURTHER FROM CHILE.
The Chilean news grows moro and
more dramatic. It now appears that
when lialniaceda's troops entered Iqui
que it was only due to the fact that the
OougWWtonaHati had retired to ships iv
the harbor, not dreaming of the enemy
being so near at hand. In clearing a
streot to enable troops to land, a revolu
tionist gunboat destroyed unwillingly a
great di al of property. But tho landing
was effected, and Balmaceda's men
driven out, but not until they had burned
tho linest part of the city.
Tho news is that all tho revolutionists
lack is arms and ammunition sufficient
to equip the volunteers who flock to that
side. On the other hand, Balmaceda has
doublo tho number Of troops and more,
ali v, 111 armed. But it is stated by relia
ble authority that fully two-thirds of his
men are ooOßCrlpta, have been seized and
forced into the ranks, and that it is a com
mon thins: to see batches of recruits
brought in under guard in leg and hand
irons. One Intendente is said to have
written to the dictator that ho could send
no larger number of volunteers, "owing
to a scarcity of handcuffs."
Gentlemen recently returned from Bai
inacedan dominated territor}-, relates acts
of cruelty on the part of the dictator that
make the blood run cold. For instance.
employers have to tag their ser^mts,
and those untagged are seized and driven
into the ranks. If they resist they are
beaten or bayoneted on the spot, then
drafted to work by Balmaceda's under
lings, are tortured by having tacks and
pins driven into them. In somo cases,
if the drafted man expresses sympathy
for the revolutionists, his fingers are
beaten to a jelly on rocks with mallets,
and he is told to go and serve his friends.
On the house-doors of those he "sus
pects" of sympathy for the Congression
alists, Balmaceda has a red cross painted.
These people thus distinguished must
never lock their doors, must retire at 5
p. m., and are liable at any moment to
be compelled to feed and clothe soldiers.
"Sympathizers" are imprisoned by Bal
maceda on the slightest suspicion, or,
worse yet, are cruelly tortured.
On their part the revolutionists are
charged with no excesses, except that
after the burning of Iquique's best sec
tion their soldiers ravaged the city and
committed outrages by firing upon non
combatants and shooting those who at
tempted to extinguish the flames of thoir
burning houses. This, it must be re
membered, is not infrequently the case
in revolutions. Officers lose control of
their men, who, inflamed by victory and
liquor, commit excesses upon their own
party. A commission is now on its way
to the United States to ask for the recog
nition of tho revolutionists as belliger
ents. If the ploa is granted, the Con
gressional party will have gained an ex
ceedingly important point. Since they
control more than one-half of Chilean
territory, have an army of 12,000 men
and a navy of seven ships of war, and
have maintained themselves in pitched
battles by land and sea, it would seem
that they are entitled to the recognition
THE "CHRONICLE'S" IRRIGATION
We print in another column a letter
from C. P. Huntington, discussing the
validity ofthe district bonds issued by ir
rigation districts in this State under the
Wright law. This article originally ap
peared in the irrigation edition of the San
Fraucisco Chronicle, a publication which
has, perhaps, conferred more signal beu
elit on the State of California than any
other single issue of any other paper pub
lished in the State. We reproduce the
article from Mr. Huntington as really
presenting an epitome of all the Chronicle
contains—that is to say, it discusses in a
clear, business-like and forcible way the
history, both legislative and judicial, of
the bonds offered on the market.
The intelligent, well-directed enter
prise of the Chronicle should bo com
mended by the people of California. The
progressive sections of the State where ir
rigation under the Wright law had been
projected were languishing for want of a
clear, exhaustive and thorough explana
tion of the irrigation system as outlined
by the Wright, law and the nature
and character of the securities of
fered by irrigation districts. This was
supplied by tho splendid issue of the
Chronicle in a manner so effective as to
lurnish the means ot the complete educa
tion ofthe public mind.
This estimate ofthe value oftho Chron
icle's enterprise is made upon realized re
sults. It is now some two weeks since
the issue of the paper under considera
tion, and the benefit to the State is al
GETTING AT THE FACTS.
We shall now probably get at the exact
truth concerning the menace to the Behr
ing Sea seal fisheries. Professor Henry
W. Elliott's report set forth that unless
there was absolute cessation of seal tak
ing lor from five to seven years, the catch
would close in two years. Indeed, he de
clared that a single year more of seal tak
ing would imperil the industry. Pro
fessor Elliott spent two winters and sum
mers in the sea. He diligently gathered
tho evidence of Aleuts, Russians and
Americans. In short, he made a thor
ough study of the natural history of the
seal, and of the conditions ofthe Behring
The Canadian, and to some extent the
American poachers, have denied the cor
rectness of Professor Elliott's conclu
sions, and the former have gone so far as
to pronounce them absurd. They declare
that there has beon no diminution of the
seals, and that it would bo quite impos
sible to exterminate them. Professor
Elliott, however, is fortified by the fact
that the catch last year toll off more than
80 per cent., compared with tho take of
five years ago.
Tho English Government has now
named Sir George Baden-Powell and W.
Dawson as agents to visit Behring Sea
and ascertain the facts. They will cruise
in the sea all this summer in an English
ship-of-war, stopping at any point they
may desire. Two American commission
ers will soon be named to make a similar
examination. The belief is that Pro
fessor Elliott will be named as one of the
American commissioners. They will
cruise in the sea. and toward the close of
the inquiry itis likely that the two com
missions will meet aud comparo notes
prior to tho official arbitration in October.
We may thus expect within the next six
months to have tho issue betwoen the
Poachers and Professor Elliott settled on
a line of facts that will not be opon to any
The British commissioners are named
as arbiters in the arbitration agreed to be
tween the two Governments, and while
the United States may name a distinct I
commission of inquiry, it is probable

From Head to Waist a mass of Dis
ease. Suffering: Terrible. Cured
by Cuticura Remedies.
I was covered with scrofula sores from my
head to my waist, sull'ering so that I could not
sleep nights, aud could lie down only with
pillows under my arms. My head was so sore
that I could not wear a hat; and being a
farmer, I could not go bareheaded, so wore a
very soft handkerchief on my head. In fact,
I was a disgusting si^ht to others and to my
self. After doctoring for six years with the
best physicians in the country, and getting
worse all the time, I had given up all hope of
getting well when I saw your Cuticuka itoi
ediks advertised and procured a set,although
with little faith in them. The lirst set. how
ever, did 1110 such a vast amount of good, that
I continued th<ir use, aud now. after usini;
