Major Morrill's Opening Speech
The splendid demonstration of
-republicans at the home of George
Martin last Saturday was the open
ing gun of the campaign and the
eloquent speech of Major Morrill
set forth the issues of the contest
in a manner that may well be fol
Jowed by every other speaker from
now till November. The supreme
jssue before the people, said Major
J&orrill, is between law and order
pne one side and socialism and an
arphy on the other.
lThe mission of the republican
party was to redeem the state. The
actions and the platform of the
populists will result in the farther
depreciation: of values. They prom
ised the people reform two years
ago, and in redeeming that promise
had so managed the public institu
tions that, with a single exception,
t tfrere fead Deen a scandal and a dis
' grace connected with each one. Men
pf known bad character had been
appointed to responsible positions
and had disgraced them. Men who
had left other states for the state's
good were elevated and then betray
, d their trusts. Applause.
'I am a republican because I am
jm American. Cheers. I be
lieve that the United States is Qie
best country on earth. Loud aP
plause. If I had the power 1
would protect the industries of the
country from all encroachments
of whatever nature. I would give
the benefits of the markets here to
thp benefit of the American work
man. I believe the men who made
this state what she has been, and
pan be again, will find they are in
line with this policy at the election
and that Kansas, the ( best state in
the Union, will be redeemed in No
vember. Much applause.
On the fallacy that an issue of
more money will restore confidence
and lubricate the wheels of industry
and commerce, Major Morrill said:
flThere is just as much money in
fche country as ever. It is hoarded
in the banks for the reason that the
f?care is not all over. In times like
these no one uses money, while in
prosperous times there is a constant
flemand for money from all direc
tions. The money is in the nat
ural channels if it only had an op
portunity of getting out.
" JlIt will do no good to issue more
money. It would be like injecting
more blood in the system of a man
suffering from the congestion of
the heart. There would be simply
more blood to gather around the
pongested parts. ,
lDne thing we do want is good
money money in which we feel a
confidence and money that calls out
new enterprises and opens up new
industries, i want the people to
Jiave good money. Every dollar is
sued by the United States ought to
be as good as any other dollar made,
no ujatter whether it is gold or sil-
"The parity between the two
petals ought to be preserved, and if
necessary every ounce of the silver
mined here ought to be coined and
placed in circulation. But in all
this we should do nothing that
would inake one dollar less than
any other dollar."
' What the people need to hear on
the money question is the truth and
they will never hear it from the in
flationists who believe in the utterly
exploded fallacy that the more
money issued the wealthier the peo
ple and the better the condition of
business. The exportation of gold
at the present time, with the balance
pf trade in favor of this country, is
proving the truth of the famous
Jjresham law that the best inoney
will be driven out by the poorer
whenever there is a redundancy of
pqrrency in the country. There is
no other explanation of the flowing
out of the gold at this time. As
Major Morrill states, the country
has mare money than it can use.
Tn snch a case it always suffers a
a loss of the best element of its cur
rency and the result is disturbance
gnd loss of confidence.

President Phillips, of the Southwest
Kansas college, has accepted a posi
tion in California, and hsis resigned
his place on the Kansas State Board
of Education. Governor Lewelljng
has appointed Mrs. Lucy Best, su
perintendent of Labettn counir, to
take Mr. Phillip's place on the
board. The appointment of- Mrs.
Best will be ordinarily approved by
the teachers of the state, and especi
ally by the county superintendento,
for, until now, they have been with
out representation on the board.
"What your institute needs," re
marks Dr. Eliezer Swackelhammer,
of the University of Greenland, "is
less academic work, and more ah
more theory, that is to say ah
more professional work."
For the venerable doctor we have
a respect which borders closely on
reverence, but we nevertheless feel
moved by our spirit to throw befoie
him in an interrogative manner a
few facts. It i" assumed bv our
learned friend and others who live,
move and have their being near the
aurora" borealis that the young peo
ple who attend institutes have had a
more or less thorough literary train
ing, and that the one thing lacking
now is some professional varnish.
But hundreds upon hundreds, yea,
thousands upon thousands, in our
land to-day step from the advanced
classes of the district or grammar
schools into our institutes. Con
ductors and instructors know full
well that whole batalions of these
young people need, not only profes
sional training, but academic in
struction, and plenty of it. "Ah,
but interposes our brreenland
brother "that condition of things
should not be tolerated for a mo
ment; every school should have a
trained teacher." But it must be
tolerated, for necessity is laid upon
us, and a teacher of some sort must
be placed in command in every dis
trict. The conditions are here, and
are likely to remain some time after
the doctor and the rest of us are in
the realm where institutes are un
known. There is no necessary an
tagonism between professional train
ing and academic instruction. In
all our institutes these two must be
joined together, and under present
conditions cannot be put asunder.
A Frenchman of some literary
distinction, after studying English
for a few months, wrote to an

can learn so many English as I
