la view of Uie ensuing high school coss cess
mencement It mar be wall te recall the
fact that this yetr 1 the semi-centennial of
the orgenlzttien of the public soheols of
thla city. The common aoheol law waa ao ae
cepted J une 1, 1833, by it public vote of the
citizens of Lancaster ; five hundred end
seventy-four votes being cast In lie favor
and only one against It, and the following
named gentlemen were recommended te
the old Lancaaterlan achoel beard te act In
conjunction with themaaa beard of dlree
tera te carry en the soheols under the new
law : Samuel Dale, esq., Jebn jt.8te.nman,
O. Hager, Leuis C. Yungerleb, Jehn Hear,
Henry Ketfer, Jehn Kberman (cashier),
Peter McUoneniy, David Cockier, Jehn K.
Finulay, Jehn Kehrer, and Peter Q. Eber
man; These goutlemeu were unanimously
elected by the old beard, appointed by the
court, and whleh at that time consisted of
the following named gentlemen: Geerge
Muiser, Adam Relgart, Geerge H. Krug,
William Cooper, Dr. F. A. Muhlenberg,
ttev. Samuel Bewman, Rev. T. Marshall
Davie, Rev. Bernard Keenan, Dr. Samuel
Hume, Henry Benedler, Jehn R,
Montgomery, Emanuel Shacfl'er, Dr. Jehn
Ii. Atlee and Jehn Zimmerman.
TltH OLD BOARD.
On the 9lh.ef Jane the last meeting of Iho
old beard was held, and en the 11th
the old and new members met
jointly In the old court beuse as the
beard of dlreotera of the common aoheol
system of the city of Lancaster and (ilected
the following named till cere : President,
Adam Relgart; secretary, Jehn K.
Findlay ; treasurer, Geerge Musser ; col
lector, Jehn Yest ; messenger, Matthias
Zthm.
Of these pioneers In the cause el com men
aobeota net ene remains among us. Hern
of them were old end full of honors when
they took up the work and they were secn
called le their tlnal rest ; ethers then young
and vigorous carried en the work for a
quarter el a oentury or mere, a few of them
having died only a few yeata age.
When these school fathers began tbe
work et organization they bad no land
marks te guide them. Pablle schools were
a new thing under the sun. Whether tbe
system would be cheerfully or grudgingly
supported by the tax-pay or r bad yet te be
tried. They felt that economy was neces
sary ; aud in tbelr first appeal te tbe voters
they asked for only f 1,200 te carry en the
soheols for the first year. It was believed
that the Lincasterlan school building (the
only ene owned by the beard at that time,)
would be amply aufllclent te accommodate
all pupils in the northwestern part et tbe
city, (Including what Is new the Firs',
Filth and Ninth wards,) and that accom
modation for pupils flora the eastern sec
tion of tbe city could be found In sessions
and lecture rooms of the cburehes. The
beard rented several of these and elected
the following teachers te take obarge cf the
echoelB :

The directors bad werked hard from
June te September, aud were net a
little shocked when soheols whleh
were epened early In September
showed that tbe accommodations were far
from sulllclent, 704 chlldren having been
In attendance at the end of the first week
and many applicants refused. Other leo lee
ture rooms and Sunday school rooms were
rented and filled with pupils and the con
stant cry was made for mere room.
1 1 1310 the beard roaelvod te buy lets In
what was then the suburbs et the four sec
tions of the city and erect beuses upon
them as nocesslty required. In 1811 three
el the live one-Btery brick beuses were put
up en the corner of Seuth Duke and Ger
man Btreele, and two yews later tbe ether
two buildings wero put up. In 1817-M8 two
- nnn-nterv brick school houses were bullten
North Mulberry street, above Orange, And
In ISiO-'&O, two similar bousea were built
at the corner of Seuth Mulberry and Vine,
and two ethers en the corneref East I.emen
and Lilme. During 1852 four school houses
were built en West Chestnut atreet and en
Sherman atreet. Thus seventeen new
aoheol houses had been erected up te 1855
at a cost et ab jut (22,000.
These one-story tchoel houses were a
geed deal better tban the Ill-contrived
country aoheol houses that preceded them,
but with the advance of education, the In
troduction et better method b, a larger and
i.etter selected curriculum, the directors
aaw that tbe old school houses had pretty
nearly served their turn and that they
must as rapidly aa possible be replaced
with mere convenient and pretentious
true lures.
THE NEW BIjILPINas.
In 1670 the new high school building, en
West Orange street, was oreeted at a cost
.of?42,000; It is a handseme building, very
complete In all lta appointments. Frem
time te time since then school houses have
been erected en the following sites : The
Rockland street building, two story brick,
alz rooms and the necessary class rooms ;
tbe West James straet aoheol, 4 -rooms,
1S80 ; the East Lemen street school, 1880,
at first a two-story, 8-room school house,
but altered recently te a three-story 12-room
building ; the Maner, New, Ann, Seuth
Prince, West Walnut. All of these school
houses contain each eight school rooms.
The light, heating and ventllating appa
ratus are the beat that iclentlfic research has
placed at the command of the beard.
Besides these first-class houses tbe beard
has in use a convenient one-story brick en
Strawberry atreet, three old houses en
Seuth Mulberry, five en Seuth Duke and
the old Lineterlan building, eirner et
Prince and G'hesmu'. The old bulldlnga
at Lemen and Lime were tern down te
make way for tbe handsome 12 room struc
ture new In uie. Tbe old buildings en
North Mulberry were tern down and the
greunda added te these of the high schoelr.
Tbe Kaat Orange street property was sold,
the site being deemed an unhealthy one.
It Is likely that within a very few years
new achoel house's will be put en the prep,
ertlea owned by the beard en Seuth Duke,
West Vine and West Chestnut street, and
then Lancaster can beast aa fine and valu valu
abie achoel buildings as any city In the
aute.
But It la net alone In school atchlteclure
(hat Lancaster has made great advances
within tbe past fifty years. The schools
themselves have been graded, systematized
and in every way improved. The county
auperlntendeney, with Its examination of
teachers and Its annual county institutes,
has been of immense advantage te the
teacbera and schelata ; and the still closer
relationship recently established between
.teachers, scholars and a city superintend
ent, have worked wendera In tbe adoption

A RETROSPECT.
retrospect of the past half century
shows that the pablle schools of tbe city
bare been In geed hands. The fathers
who laid tbe foundation tart peeved away,
but honest, able ud willing hands took up

Dozens of ethers no leas distinguished
might be named in this category.
Te show the progress made in the public
school property within the last half cen
tury It may be said that In 1838 the school
beard owned only the old Lanoiaterlan
building and that It was mortgaged for as
much as It was worth. At the present tlme
the value of the several tchoel bulldlnga
are estimated by tbe finance committee as
fellows : Prince street building $10,000,
high school 145 000, Lemen street 143,850,
Jamea a'reet $13,000, New street 113,250,
Maner street 113,000, Ann street $12,850,
Beulh Prince street $15,000, West Walnut
street $14,500, Strawberry street $3,000,
Duke atreet (5) $25,000, West Vine street
$15,760, West Cnestnut street $13,500, Rock
land street $10,500 ; total, $248,200.
The total debt of tbe dlstrlet la only
$89,268.69, leaving an excess of assets ever
I labilities of $158,950 C8.
The number et teachers whleh half a
century age waa but sixteen has Inereased
te seventy-seven, and tbe monthly pay roll
whleh was scarcely $400 per month baa in
creased te $31,43 b.15 per months.
This la a glorious record for tbe half
century J ust passed. J. M. J.

On Monday evening tbe young Republi
cans of thla elty Indulged In a waJkaroend
In honor of the nomination of Harrison and
Morten. Ever slnea the convention was
called te order at Chicago last Tuesday the
young members et this club, many of
whom ara net yet voters, have been en the
anxious bench. During the days that the
balloting was In progress some of them
were almost wild from excitement, and
they danced around en the het pavements
at times like crazy men. They were
anxious te ratify somebody's nomina
tion and It mattered little te them who
the candidates were. Beveral members were
kept busy for a oeuple of days engaging a
band and, alter sending all ever the county,
they finally accepted the terms of tfie
Liberty band, of Manhelm. Thla organiza
tion was Instructed te move te Lan
caster promptly whenever called upon.
All day Friday and Saturday the
young men thought they would
get a nomination and they kept Jake Hatz
busy in the het garret of the Grape hotel
putting up a wire for a banner. When
Snnday came, without a nomination, the
young men were pretty well disgusted. At
neon en Monday the long looked for name
eame at last and the members et the club
could no longer restrain themselves. They
were seen running races with the perspira
tion in all directions and they steed en
every corner and talked In an excited man
ner. They had never before experienced
anything of the kind and did
net knew hew te behave. The
band was at once ordered. Herace Roberts,
who la always given a Jeb of this kind,
was started out with along paper te scour
the court house, Leepard hotel and ether
places for subscriptions, and Harry
Sohreyer waa tbe bualeat man in town giv
ing orders. The band was in tbe elty very
promptly, and they began playing around
the atreeta at an early hour. By half-past
eight o'clock there waa a large orewd, com
posed mostly et boys, in front of the build
ing In whleh are the rooms of the Yeung
Republicans. This building waa beautifully
decorated with Chlneae lanterns, Ae. At
8:30 tbe "line" was formed. There were
about 600 persons in tbe party, but a de
cided majority of them were quite little
boys, of the kind known as "kids," or
elder uenea without voter. There
were yery few men in the crowd
and some who were in seen left
the rank,dlgusted with the.oenduot of the
boys. There waa nothing orderly about
tbe parade, but the marchers seemed te be
ruahlng wildly along without regard for
anything. Tbe little boys were kept in
line with a liberal supply of fireworks.
The larger boys had tin horns and ether
Instruments. They yelled and screamed
ever the entire route, but tbe name of Har
rison was ecareely ever mentioned. The
line et march extended all ever
the elty. In some atreeta quite a
number et houses were Illuminated, but
it waa a noticeable fact tnat the residences
of many promlnent Republicans were
pitch dark. By the tlme tbe route had
been gene ever tbe ranka of the parade
were very tbln. These that remained
In line managed te get te the room
of the Yeung Republican?. Here there
were loud calls ler Charles Strlekler, the
tow-beaded orator formerly connected
with tbe Examiner ofilee, who, It is said,
had arranged with the beya te call for him.
His name bad ecareely been mentioned
when he Btepped te the front et tbe baloeny
of the club room and delivered wbat he
called a speech. It waa a mixture of
Tippecanoe, Tyler, leg cabin, free trade,
bloedy-ahlrt, American Dig, the bandanra
night-mare, hard elder, &?. H trick
ier did net have head enough
te knew that some or the silk
stocking members et the club were simply
" guyleg " him by loudly applauding and
he oentlnuad te rant around until he almost
frothed at the mouth and loekod aa though
he had been chewing soap. He continued
until he waa overcome by the heat when he
waa taken Inte the club rooms and carefully
groomed by tbe Janitor. He will be In
shape te take part in the campaign and Is

On tha 9th of March 1882, tha Senate
pasted a bill te execute certain treaty stip
ulation with the Chinese, whleh aNlTward
passed the Heuse aaat waa vetoed by Preal
dent Arthur April 14, 1882. This bill pro
vided that the coming of Chinese laborers
te the United States should be suspended
for twenty years. The principal ground et
the veto waa that the period waa tee long.
While the bill was being considered In
the Senate an amendment waa offered by
Mr. Hear, et Massachusetts, aa fellow.;
That thla bill ahail net annlv te an
skilled laborer who shall establish that he
cornea te thla country without any oentraot
by whleh his labor Is the property of any
person ether than himself.
Fer whleh amendment Mr. Harrison
voted (Congressional Recerd, volume 52,
page 1.71G). Mr. Harrison also voted for
the following amendment :
Provided further that any laborer who
shall receive a oertlfieite from the United
States consuls at the pert where he shall
emDarst tnat ne is an artisan coming te this
country at his own expense and et Tils own
free will, and haa established such fact te
the satisfaction of such cenanl, shall net be
affected by this bill. (Congressional
Recerd, volume 52, page 1,717).
Beth of these amendments were de
feated by Demoeratlo votes, with the aid of
three or four Republicans, April 2, 1882.
The question being taken en the passage of
the mil ever the veto, Mr. Harrison voted
"Ne." ("Congreaslenal Recerd," page
2.017, volume 63.) The vote was Yeas 29,
nays 21, net two-thirds in Its favor, and the
bill waa defeated.
After the failure te piss the bill ever the
veto, another bill of lha aame title, differ,
leg In aeme particulars from the first, waa
paaed by both houses. Tbe latter bill sus
pended Chinese Immigration for ten
years instead of twenty, whleh tbe presi
dent considered tee long. While thla bill
was under consideration, April 23, 1882,
Benator Harrison voted for striking out tbe
following clause of the bill :
Seotlen 16, that the weids "Chinese la
borers." wherever used In thla aeL shall ha

tbe paaaage of the bill te execute treaty

Speaker Carlisle : "It Is a weak nomi
nation. 1 de nr.t aay that It Is the weakest
that tbe party could have made, but 1 aee
nothing about It te cause us any alarm. In
my opinion we can beat It, but then we
could beat anybody they might have nomi
nated. Mr. Harrison, however, la weak
because he baa no personal following and
there nothing about him te arouse en
thusiasm. But there Is still a greater
reason why he la weak. He is regaided aa
the enemy of labor, and his position en tbe
Chinese question is se wetl known that I
need net refer te It. The worklngmen have
net forgotten the position he took and they
will net forget it when election day rolls
around,"
Representative Thompson (Dtm.), et
Caltiernia : " 1 don't tbln any man could
carry California, with Harrison's record,
He la the best nominee that could have
been made for the Democrats, and all the
California Democrats are jubilant ever It."
Kepreamtatlve Springer (Uem.), of Illi

Blaine ia defeated. In my opinion, itlaine
waa tbe atrongest nomination that could
have been made, and 1 am Indlffereatabeut
tbe candidate new that he has gene. Harri

but Is nut te be compared with Clsveland
for executive ability.
Senater Turple, of Indiana: "lsucceded
General Harrison In the Senate, and hoteJ
that bis defeat In Irdlana would end his
ambitious effort?. Certainly It never oc
curred te me that It would be my duty te
atrlke him after he waa down, but new that
he cornea up for a bigger fight, I ahail, of
ceurae, take tbe stump against him and
help te defeat him. Indiana will show her
'love for Harrison' by giving Cleveland a
pronounced insjeruy.
Representative MoDenald (Dem. ), of
Minnesota : " 1 believe tbat It the Demo
crats of Minnesota will act In harmony and
net fritter away their alrength by quarrel
ing among tbemselves Minnesota can be

change of 1,200 votes In the election two

Domecrata."
Senater Ceck roll (Dem.), et Mitaeurl:
"1 de net aee where he can add strength te
tbe ticket in the doubtful state. Very
naturally, having been before tbe Indiana
people se many times and in ae many het
contests, he cannot be expteted te) rapture
any Democratie votes. He will only get
the Republican strength and there is net
enough te secure Indiana's electoral vote.

( Rep.) says : " Mr. Harrison was net the
first oheloe et the voters el California.
Greaham or Alger represent the attitude of
the coast far mera oleaely than Mr. Herri
son, especially ea the Chinese question,
and California would have been far better
satisfied had either of these men been
chosen."
The Daify Repert (lnd.) says: "The
nomination of Harrison by the Republican
la a great disappointment te Democrats,
They were confident that Blaine would be
nominated. Harrison waa net the first,
second or third oheice of the Callferulana.
Hew he will stand in California la as yet
Impossible te predleU He voted en the
wrong aide et the Chinese question."
The San Francisce Chronicle says : It
would be useless te deny that the news et
the nomination of Gen. Harrison eaused a
feeling of disappointment in thla elty.
The Examiner (Dtm.) oeneldera the
nomination tantamount te the election of
Cleveland, and besides giving the Dsmo Dsme
crata California and Oregon, coneedea them
Indiana and New Yerk.
The Call (Kep.) explains Harrison's
record en the Chinese question as conscien
tious and mildly i raises the nomination.
