c;Ik)i:iii ill this town, many were exceed -ingh
np'.oved by the loud and vulgar con
versation and comments of three individuals
who occupied seats iu row II of section C,
and of a couple more occuping seats direct
bji in the rear of thou named. I simply
wish that they, individually, and all others
whom the cap may lit, shall have an oppor
tunity of having the idea impressed upon
their fccbli minds that the majority of thoso
who attend theatre performances go for the
purpose' of hearing what the actors have to
tar, ami not what addle-brained idiots iu
tho audience see fit to force upon their
neighbors gratis. This cla have within
tho mtiin.ts of gcntlemeu, the smallest
amount of sense, or ability to distinguish
between good and bad acting when they see
it; and only attend theatres in order to give
their neighbor in the audience the exceed
ing great benefit of their experience as crit
ics and mashers. They should
be forcibly reminded of the fact that, while
eveiy one has a right to his opinion, no one
ha the right to force that opinion upou
others who neither care what it is or wheth
er it exists at all. Tho-e in the neighbor
hood of the parlies alluded to were treated
to extracts of private history which positive
ly proved that they were not gentlemen;
also comments upon the play such as "Well
that is the worst 1 ever seen," etc., showing
conclusively that the high order of intelli
gence and education which they possessed
made them worthy of better company than
those around them (?)
Hoping that the parties alluded to may
see this article and have Millieient instinct to
take this gentle hint and profit by it stilli
ciently hereafter wait until they are asked to
express opinions, 1 clo-e with tho further
reminder to them which their mother
probably taught them quite lately that
children should be seen and not heard.

The constitution of our state, Art. 0, Sec.
2, on tho subject of "Kducation," reads as
follows: "The legislature shall encourage
the promotion of intellectual, moral, scien

and schools of a higher grade, embracing

The ultimate object of the state and of all
the stales in making provision for the edu
cation of the children, is to lit them to be
come intelligent, virtuous, law-abiding citi
zens and prepared for any post of trust and
responsibility within her gift. It was sup
posed until within a few years that parents
would gladly avail themselves of the ample
facilities thus atlbrded them for the educa
tion of their children. Itut such shameful
indifferences has been manifested in some

of knowledge however great, would not avail
to make good citizen, without a correspond
ing cultivation of the moral nature.
AVebsters definitions of "moral" are, rela
ting to duty or obligation, pertaining to
tho-e intentions nnd actions of which right
and wrong, irtuonnd vice are predicated
relating to the practice, manners or conduct
of men unsocial beings iu relation to each
other as respects right and wrong con
formed to law and right in exterior deport
ment." Tho duties and obligations lo eacli other,
to society and to the stato ought to form a
very important pirt of the training of the
young in tho public schools. Thev should
be taught to be virtuous just, courteous,
reverential to those in authority, peaceable,
law-abiding, doing always to others as they
would that others should do to them. The
stato has as much right to teach morals :ls to
teach geography, grammar or anything else.
And if we look to the end sought to bo at
tained by tho stato in providing for public
education, to-vv it, tho production of good,
true, v irtuous citizens, then the moral teach
ing assumes an importance which far trans
cends that of intellectual or scientific cul
ture. To bo a good citizen does not de
mand great development of intellect or high
fcientilic attainments, but honesty and in
tegrity, n puru heart and clean hands are es
sential. Tho constitution then makes it obligatory
on the legislature to encourage the promo
tion of "moral" improvement in all the in
stitutions of learning, from the district school
to the university. Tho absolute necessity of
a higher grade of morality is apparent in all
departments of business nnd of politics.
Never, it seems to tho writer, has there been
in this country such a lack of strict upright
ness nnd honesty of dealing in business cir
cles, so much chicanery and corruption in
politic, so little regard to justice nnd right
iu our courts in n word, such a general
breaking up of thu very foundations of mor
ality and virtue as exists nt the present time.
If the next generation be no improvement
on the present, God help ti, for wo hall
not bo able to help ourselves.
Every method that can he employed
should be brought into requisition to in'till
into tho minds of tho young a love for tho
practice of all those virtue that go to the
formation of the best type of men and wom
en. Tho moral instruction that childrei.
reeeivo at home, should bo supplemented by
daily lessons in school on their duties as so
cial beings in respect to right and wrong.
There must be lino upon lino, precept upon
precept, hero a little and there a little, with
no cessation and no faltering. Moral in
struction should receive a high measure of
attention nt the high schools, colleges and
universities, from which will como the fu
ture statesmen who will shape and control
thede-tinio of our country.
The question arises, nro wo complying
with the fundamental law of tho state? Do
our children receive from the teachers in our
public schools that moral training needful to
fit them for the responsible duties of citizen
ship Do those in authority tho school
boards and the superintendents see to it
that teachers are as faithful in giving in
structions in morality as in reading nnd
spelling? Another question suggests itself
here, do thosp who employ teachers satisfy
themselves that they arc not only strictly-
moral in their lives but capable of teaching
pnremoralitv? AVhile an examination of
teacher's morals cannot be conducted in tho
same manner as his ovamination iu geo
graphy, yet the examiners can learn some
thing of the teacher's fitness iu this direction
before ho is employed, and a few visit to
the school ttuder his charge, will show
whether or not he is capable of instructing
his pupils in regard to their duties and ob
ligations to their fellow beings and to tho
The tendency of tho times seems to bo more
to ignore all moral teaching in our public
school. Somo even asserting that every
thing outside, of the textbooks employed
should be rigidly excluded. This is certain
ly not carrying out the prov ision of tho
constitution. And the more strictly the
moral improvement of the children is disre
garded in our schools, the further off are we
from accomplishing tho highest object in
tended by our whole system of public in
fraction. Pure, true, virtuous nnd upright
men and women will be the exceptions rath
er than the rule among the graduates of all
our educational institutions, unless their
"moral improvement" receives a much lar
ger share of attention than has heretofore

THE CHICACO FRAUD.
Our render are aware that the fraud in
Chicago by which tho Democrats attempted
to steal a state senator, and then a United
States 'cnator, was by forged tickets. After
the polls wero closed some two weeks, tho
lieuhlican ticket was engraved, and n fac
f imile of it prepared, then the name of the
Democratic candidate for senator was iu-ted
over that of the Republican, and placed in
tho ballot box in one ward, and an equal
number ofgonuino Itenublican tickets taken
out and destroyed. 1 his l- now proved and
acknowledged, oven by the Demo
crats. "Vc do not know that peo

prise at thi. There is not a reader of the
history of thU country for tho pat forty
years that does not fnovv that the Demo
