THE light, irreverent and even personal

shocking. The General ought to mollifie the

REV. JABEZ BBOOKS, ot the State Univer-
sity, preached a sermon last eve
ning at the Jackson Street Methodist Church,
on the all absorbing topic of hell. The
Kev. Jabez is very positive in his belief that
there is such an institution as hell, but be
yond this very emphatic declaration of
opinion there was nothing notable in the dis
course. The "hell" topic is becoming rather
threadbare by the sensational efforts of the
clergy, and it might be as well to give us a
few glimpses of heaven, if for nothing else
than for variety. We trust it is not owing
to the degree of familiarity with the respec
tive localities that we hear so much of the
pit of woe, and so little of tho realms of
QUACKENBOS es. JiCItT.
It is apparent Mr. George P. Quackenbos
imagines that State Superintendent Burt
stands alone in his opposition to the text
book bill in Minnesota. Having, to his own
satisfaction at least, demolished Mr. Burt,
he rests from his labors with great compla
cency. It happens that Mr. Burt is one of
many, and that the opposition to the meas
ure is general and wide-spread among the
educational men of the State. Of course it
is natural that Mr. Quackenbos,
being connected with the house
which now has the fifteen year mono
poly, should favor the present bill. Just as
it is natural for publishers not having the
monopoly to oppose it. The controversy of
books publishers is not, however, a point of
great interest to the people. What they are
interested in is determining whether an ex
pensive and dangerous system has not been
inaugurated. Attacks on Mr. Burt, or con
troversies between individuals, do not reach
the case in point. Mr. Burt has given mor
tal offence to Appleton & Co the
publishers of the state text book series,
because, in the discharge of his duties as a
public officer, he has not failed to point out
the great mistakes of the legislation last
winter. It comes with a very ill-grace for
Quackenbos to attack a State official, be
cause, in the discharge of his public duties,
said official has conscientiously opposed and
exposed his (Quackenbos') grab.
One of the most peculiar portions of the
Quackenbos attack is the list of testimonials
which are given to demonstrate that Mr. Q.'s
Language Lessons are the right thing to
have in schools. Mr. Stubbs of Clarence,
Iowa, and Mr. Nightingale of Lake View,
111., and Mr. Snow of Alfred, Maine, certify
that Quackenbos has achieved greatness in
his "Language Lessons." The inquisitive
public may ask, who is Stubbs, and who is
Nightingale, and who is Snow that they
should be held up as models of judgment in
educational affairs? la it possible that Clar
ence, Iowa, and Lake View, HI., and Alfred,
Me., have secured the great educational minds
of the nineteenth century whose dictum shall
be as the law of the land? If there had been
any doubt before relative to Quackenbos'
ability, the certificate of these distinguished
and enlightened educators from Clarence,
Iowa, Lake View, 111., and Alfred, Me.,
would settle the question. No wonder that
he assailed Mr. Burt so bitterly. With such
prominent educators at his back he becomes
irresistible. Hail to Quack!

REFORM THE TARIFF AND REVENUE
There is and has been more rascality in
the revenue, if possible, than any other de
partment of government. No law, no legis
lation will be complete, unless it reaches
down to the bottom, and not only reforms
the tariff, reducing and equalizing duties,
but simplifies and remodels the custom
house business from root to branch, from
corner-stone to the cupola. The custom
houses of the United States, with few or no
exceptions, are hot beds of corruption. With
their numberless political sinecures, with
their old political barnacle hangers-on, with
Kepublican understrappers and pot-house
politicians, with their interminable circum
locution of offices and red-tape, and expense,
and stealings, they are a digrace to a civil
ized country. The whole system is corrupt,
expensive and doubly complicated. The
buildings themselves have been political
jobs to swindle the government, and to rob
the tax-paying people, and they are used as
headquarters for partisan office-holders, and
as a machine to plunder the people.
This is true everywhere in the United
States, and notably in New York, where the
appointments and the system are an ever
lasting bone of political contention, blocking
the wheels of government and delaying legis
lation for their settlement. The present
Congress should remodel and simplify and
purify the whole business, and relieve it of
the political incubus, now resting upon the
collection of the national revenue.
The next work is the reform of the tariff.
Every cent for protection should be abol
ished. It adds nothing to the revenue, but
goes into the pocket of the manufacturer.
We want to get as near to free trade as
possible. If we wish to sell we must buy.
The country needs an enlarged market. We
produce more wheat, tobacco, cotton, bread
stuffs, beef and pork than we need. Open
the markets of the world. If we export free
we must import free. It is all barter. Take
off the tax on foreign goods, so that we may
buy in the markets of the world, exchanging
It is not only the farmers and producers,
who need markets, but the manufacturers
also. No country on the globe can equal
the United States in the quality
and cheapness of cotton cloths,
calicoes, boots and shoes, hardware, sewing
machines, agricultural implements and so
on. The manufacturers make more than
they can sell in the United States. They
need other markets, but unless we buy there,
we cannot sell. Here is the work for the
Tariff Committee in Congress. Take off
eveiy dime of duty, except strictly for rev
enue, and very little of thatnone to sup

we must import, if we sell we must buy.

AN ASYLUM FOR IMBECILES.
A city physician writes a letter in favor of
an asylum for imbeciles, and the incurably
insane, on the European plan. This sys
tem combines employment with guardian
ship custody and care. For this purpose it
is suggested, that a section of land be pur
and a settlement of this unfortunate
class be made on it in family groups occupy
ing cottages and under the supervision
of keepersthat employment be furnished
winter and summer and so on. We sugges
ted, a few days ago, in an article on this
subject, the establishment of an asylum for
the class described as imbeciles and harm
less patients. These are generally incurable
but we do not understand the purpose of a
Hospital for insane to exclude all pronoun
ced incurable. The object of a Hospital is
to alleviate as well as cure, and
there are many apparently incurable
cases requiring constant treatment.
The Stale pays for the treatment of all, and
This, however, is by the wav. There is
nothing new in the plan mentioned in the
physician's letter. Every one who has paid
tho least attention to the subject is familiar
with the system as practiced in Europe for
many years, and with great success. The
newspapers of this country have contained
lengthy descriptions, and the magazines, no
tably Harpers' not many months ago, profuse
illustrations of the villages a'nd settlements in
the Alpine country. The Legislature must
look to the expense. The land would cost
comparatively little, and the European plan
involves very little expense, being simple
and comprehensive. The three quarters of
a million expended at St. Peter might possi
bly have been more judiciously used. We
want neither marble palaces nor marble
prisons, but homes, medical treatment, and
care for the unfortunate, and with as little
expense as possible.
THE WAR ENDED-FEACE.
Latest European intelligence indicates the
conclusion of peace between Russia and
Turkey. The great purpose of Russia will
be accomplished in the opening of the Dar
danelles to Russian ships of war. This,
virtually, as to Russia, makes the Black sea
free. Turkey has long since held the key,
and the Black sea has been a mare claubion
to all the world. Russian ships, during win
ter, were blocked up in ice in the
ports of the Baltic, or
in friendly shelter at some
neutral port. Hereafter they will winter in
the parts of the Black Sea and Russia with
the immense resources of timber and harbors
thu3 opened, will soon become the great
naval power of the world.
We shall see, in a short time, the splendors
and royalty of St. Petersburg transferred to
the shores of the Black Sea, and the icy cold
of the iceberg throne exchanged for the
voluptuous gardens and palaces overhanging |g
this hitherto closed sea. The effect on the
power of Russia, will be tremendous.
With mighty land forces, and a powerful navy,
the empire will become invincible. The
prophecy of Napoleon seems to be in the
way of fulfillment.
The immediate result of peace will be the
release of all the garnered grain from the
plains of Odessa, and the ports of the
Black Sea will soon flood Western Europe.
We have no means of knowing the amount
on handbut be this small or
large, these great grain fields of the earth
will soon pour their golden harvests into
commerce filling the markets of Europe.
And the fate of Turkey is only postponed.
The doom is sealed. The conflict, just ended,
is the death knell of the "sick man." There
was a time when the Moslem's banner bore
victory on every field from Jerusalem to the
city of Constantino, and the Cross of St.
Sophia gave way to the Crescent of Moham
med. The time has passed, and the reign of
the Turk in Europe will soon be over.
SCHOOL ROOKS FRO AND CON.
The Text Book Iniquity.
Editor of the DALLY GLOBE:
Though not an admirer of Superintendent
Burt, I yet think that he deserves the lasting
gratitude of the people of Minnesota for the
stand he has taken on the text book ques
Had the law been styled an act to cripple
and demoralize our common school system
it g'ould have been more properly named,
for had the worst enemies of our school sys
tem studied for years, they could not have
hit on a plan more ruinous to their efficiency
than the text-book bill. The law of last win
ter is a nullity, and could not be enforced:
with the amendment of Senator Hall it
would be full of injustice to many hundreds
of our districts.
According to the State Auditors report
School Districts have debts amounting to
over $570,000, most of which has been in
curred in building and furnishing their
school bouses, and for which they have is
sued bonds, and under the law they have le
vied taxes to pay principal and interest, the
monies arising from such taxes they depend
upon to pay their indebtedness Districts
also levy a tax which with the current school
fund will be sufficient to keep school the
length of time ordered by the District.
Under the text book law, as Senator Hall
proposes to amend it, any of the money le
vied for the above purposes can be detained
from the Districts to pay for books never or
dered by a vote of either the District or its
Bonds and interest must remain unpaid,
jteachers must go without pay for their ser
vices, or schools must close for want of
means to pay their necessary expenses.
om may say that this text book money
will all be paid back to the school treasurer.
How do they know? We have in the State
nearly 3,700 clerks, many of them irrespon
sible, and who are under no bonds, to whom
we propose to entrust $300,000 worth of
books the first year, and about one-third as
much annually thereafter who will guarantee
the districts against losses by defalcation, or
Again, what right has the State to compel
3.700 clerks to become retail book
sellers, and to perform the work
without compensation under penalty of fine
What justice is it to make the treasurer
give bonds for the safe keeping of all mon
ies belonging to the district, and then put
part of it in anether officers hands without
What justice is it to give the clerk the
power to run the district in debt without the
consent of the other trustees, and direct the
monies belonging to it from the objects for
which they were raised?
What justice is there in forcing inferior
books on thrf poor country schools against
their will, and permitting the city schools
to purchase where they can get them the
best and cheapest, if we are to be compelled
to take them, make the law binding on all
alike, if the cities are to have a choice we
demand the same rights?
We of the country demand the right to
spend our own money in our own way and
deny the right of the State or any of its
officers to rob us in the manner proposed in
the text-book law. DANIEL GETTY.
WHITE BEAB, Jan 26.
How It Does Operate.
Editor of the DAILY GLOBE:
SIBIn your paper of Friday morning
you undertake to say how the school text
book law will operate, when put in force in
accordance with your idea of the working of
the law. Theory and practice are often at
variance. I am one of those "district
clerks, who give no bonds, and are often
times ignorant and incompetent, as well
as irresponsible." The text book law re
quired of me as clerk to make out a list
of books, that would be wanted. In the per
formance of that duty, I obtained from the
teacher a list of the books needed to supply
the scholars then in school, and increased
the order in the lower grades of books 25
per cent. The list was forwarded to the
County Superintendent, and in due time I
received the books from the County Auditor.
The change of books was made, the scholars
came forward and paid for what they bought,
and the most gratifying feature of the whole
matter is, that the enrollment of scholars
has been increased 25 per cent.,
and I know it to be a fact, that
this increase is from German families
who could not afford the expense of purchas
ing books for all their schoolable children
when the price was double the State price.
The teacher, Mr. G. S. Haseltine, formerly a
principal in the Jefferson school of this city,
and well known as a competent teacher, con
siders the series of books introduced as equal
to any he has ever used in a school room,
and the "Language Lessons" as the best
book he has ever seen for teaching grammar
Now, the only problem to be solved
is, will the average school -dis
trict clerk steal the money which he receives
from the sale of books, while the director
and treasurer are both members of the
school board and interested to see that the
clerk does his duty faithfully.
The objections to the working of a law arc
rather thin, when it is necessary to malign
the character of three thousand clerks, who
are elected by voters of the several school
districts, and are usually chosen from the
most responsible men in the district and are
particularly thin when the average amount
of book money they can have during anv
one year will not exceed ten dollars for a

Goodhue County Won't Rob the Lord.
[Red Wing Republican.]
The work on a morning newspaper is
done, almost wholly, on the day previous to
its date. Now that the Pioneer-Press is is
sued on Monday mornings, there must be
regular work on Sundays. The compositors
must violate the Sabbath or lose their
"cases." Of course the only printer who
lost his case was a Goodhue county man
our old friend Robert Bryan. He was the
only man who sacrificed his financial inter
ests for his principles. The explanation is:
he was from Goodhue county. Goodhue
county is full of it. No one here robs the
Lord of a day which he demands, or a neigh
bor of his just dues. No one here lectures
other people about their sins while hi steals
from them every cent he owes them. They

have been agitating the matter and showing
the importance and the great benefit to be
derived by the State in being represented at
the grand exposition in the French capital
the coming summer, and Gov. Pillsbury in
his annual message recommends an appro

purpose. It is not necessary to say that the

As nothing of state mystery was talked

the President to satisfy curiosity about him.
He always spoke off at the instant in a clear,
"Mr. President, there is verj little change
in your appearance?"
"I do not see or feel any change. Some
come in and tell me I look thinner, others

"Is this mansion sufficiently comfortable
for a residence? For some jearswehavo
been locally debating the erection of a sepa
rate private residence for the Piesident."
"Yes, this is very good. I do not see any
need of any more house. It is a large, com
fortable residence. If the weather is too hot
in summer there is delightful place foi the
inhabitants here at tho Soldiers' Home."
The President's onh daughter, a pale lit

and put hei aim round his neck and he put

"At last. Mr. President, Ohio has two
Democratic Senators. Mr. Pendleton's dic
tion yesterday seems to gi\e satisfaction."
"He was. perhaps, the best of the soft
money element, as we call it. If a man of
that kind was to be elected. Mr. Pendleton is
little to be regretted as any. He did intro
duce into the debates of our Demociatic
friends, who were wont to be rather rough
and-tumble in their style of speaking, the
element of the gentleman. He was the first
of their leaders to conduct public discussions
with courtesy andieciprocity."
"They all admit that his debate with Car

the President. "He is a gentleman, also.

remarkable ugly face a cracked voice and
rasping tone that is very irritating to a
