Association, ns follows:
National Kducntlon .Association of
the United States. In convention
assembled at Denver, Colorado,
July fi, 1S09. Declaration.
The National Kducntlon Associa
tion, now holding its forty-seventh
auntinl convetlon, 1 Denver, repre
ssing teachers and friends of edu
cation In ou-ry stale of the Union,
makes the following declaration of
principles und of ntms:
1. A free democracy cannot long
continue without the assistance of a
system of state-supported schools,
admlnlstcied by the chosen agents
of the peoplo nnd responsible lu the
people for Its Ideuls, Its conduct nnu
Its results. Tho commanding posi
tion of the Anieilcan peoplo Is large
ly duo to the genet al diffusion of
knowledcn and cttlturo by Its freo
2. Our system ,of stntc-supportcd
schools must Includo clcmentury
Bchools, secondary ichools, 'schools
for tho training of teachers, and
stuto universities. The changed
conditions of the twentieth century
also demand tho establishment of
frco schools whoso purposo shall bo
tho training of our joutli for com
merce and tho tndstrlcs, as well us
for the professions.
3. The purpose of our system of
free common schools must continue
to bo chiefly culture for the Indi
vidual and the transmission to pos
terity of the results of Investigations
and delbcratlons of the past. Our
freo schools must itdvnnce nlong tho
lines of educational democracy In
the sense thut they must provide
equal educational opportunities for
nil. Also they must give practical
preparation not only for the profes
sions, but nlso for commercial life,
tho demnnds of any part of the busi
ness world that courses of study bo
subordinated to pitrtlculnr Interests
Is not in accord with tho proper alms
of a national system " of common
4. A system of common schools
that will meet tho needs of the times
must be tlcniocrttlc In its purpose
und its administration; must recog
nize the Importance of expert super
vision, of better nnd more nucmrous
schools for the training nf teachers,
of n merit Bsiem tor mo uiimihh
ment nnd promotion of teachers;
and It must exclude fraternities and
seciet otgunlzntlons .of every sort
from the social life of the schools.
5. Tho common schools of our
country must rerognlzo more, fttliy
than ever the necessity of training
our youth for citizenship. The per
petuation of denv:racy depends
upon tho existence In tho people nf
that habit of will which Is Justice.
Liberty under law Is the process for
attaining Jiislleo which has thus
far been most successful among civ
ilized men. The call to citizenship
Is a call to tho cxorclso of liberty
under law, a cull to tho limitation of
liberty uy inw, nnu a can to uie
pursuit of Justice, not only for one's
self, but for others.
C. Tho Natuuial Kducntlon As
sociation endorses tho purposo of
tho American School Peaco League.
Tho Association, bellevos jtlwU the
principles of the I.cagua will make
for effective citizenship, nnd urges
nil teachers to acquaint thomselvcs
with tho work nf the l.caguo und to
co-operate with It.
7. The Increased tendency t'i
congestion of population in cities
makes necessary greater and moro
systematic attention to tlio physical
development nf our children. No
vigorous rnce of people has long
mntntnlncd a high state of civiliza
tion under conditions that did not
take Into consideration the physlcnl
ns well as the mental und moinl de
velopment of Its youth. The As
Boclutlon recommends that provision
be mnde by tho United Stutes Bu
reau of Kducntlon for effective pro
motion of physical education
through tho diffusion of sclent lllc
information on this subject.

sncintlon approves the evcr-lnci eas
ing demand for better qualified
teachers in the common schools.

The question of teachers' exam

made to form classes In tho subjects
which are required In tho examina

way to prove of mntcrlnl nssistanco
to the touchers.

swing.' A. K. Morrison, attorney for
John D. nnd Adolph II. Spreckels,
occupied nil of yesterday In giving
Superior Judge Coffey reasons why
he thought The trust created by ho
late Clnus Spreckels was Invalid.
Morrison wns arguing for n demurr
er to thp. complaint of Kudolph und
Time and agaln'Morrlson referred
to the celebrated Kalr decision, re
iterating that under this opinion nf
tho Supremo Court the" Spreckels
trust wus void. He contended thnt
tho real property nnd 'tho personal
property could not bo separated, ns
they wcro Joined under one trust
provision, and that' It thcro was
soundness In his nrgtimcnt thnt tho
realty trust was void, then tho per
sonal property trust was Invalid.
Then he showed thnt under tho
will tho trustees nro given tho right
to convert tho personalty Into realty
He Bald that It -followed that the
personalty thus converted would
havo to be governed by tho realty
trust, nnd so tho personalty trust
must fall. '

Sprockets will all tho present bene
flclnrlcs might die and It might ho

their children yet to bo born.
Tho attorney went to various
states for decisions, ho said, to sup
mfl his contentions. Ho cited tho
Sutro case, holding that as tho trus
tees of that estate were given tho
power to transfer personalty Into
realty by tho process of purchase,
tho decision wus nppllcublc.
He argued that the Intentions it
the testator would bo disregarded If
ono trust wns declared void and the
other good. Should the personalty
trust be held valid he pointed out
that Mrs. Kmma Kerris would get
one-fifth of tho realty and the In
come of one-third tho personalty,
whereas Spreckels hud Intended thnt
she should havo the Income of one-
third of the whole estate.

will answer. P. V. Dttnno probably
will close the argument, when Judgo I
