SCHOOLS OF THE SOUTH
OllillT TO HAVE THE AID OF THE
The Reasons Whj Clearlj Stated by a
Southerner, Deuiotrat of Kortj
Six Yearn' Standing.
To the EJiton of the Appeal:
NiBiiviLi.i, Tun., June 21. There
is g question v. I ich is ol practical im
poiUnoeand alout allien I regret tt
say there is net uuauiraiiy of opinion
that ia the poliry of national aid to
education, embodied in what ia known
aa the Blair hill. I do not heaitato to
vow mtsell in favor of this nieatura
and alail procted t ave my reaaona.
I am for it btxause it is Jiemooratii:.
The National Convention which nomi
nated Urover Cleveland for President
and Thos. A. Hendricks for Vice-Presi-deU
adopted ai a part of their platform
the following: "We favor theditfuaiou
of free education by common schools,
so that everv child in the land may be
taught tbe lights and duties of citizen
hip." This must have referred to national
aid to eduraUon. The Federal Gov
ernment baa nothing to do with
purely local matters, and a national
conveuticn would not fay anything in
rcfermce to them. The ((real bedy tf
our laws are pure'y locl, and there
fore the National Convention had
nothing t say abm: ttese laws be
cue tl.e Focieial Government had
nothing to do with them.
The fa t that te National Conven
tion did B ak out on any question
ehows thai thty ooufidered it a
naticnal questxn. Whether tbnSiatea
as Htates should encourasa educa
tion pahlic echnol education if it
had hem merely a local queHtlon,
could not have bten interferred with
by a nationtil convtntion, which only
looked to nutters requiring Federal
lej?iNlntion. This 's ronclnsive fs to
the views taken by the Democratic
party in convention HHt milled. No
one will contend that the A'atioual
Conven'ion ould Interfere with a
purely local mnttr.
Again, the leading tteUHtiien of the
country who had a hand in making
the govt rnment and weie atriiritedin
framing the crnnititution maintained
that tire Federal Onvernment was
bound to aid in erf'atilishinK public
schools and In aiding education.
George Washiaglon, wo presided
over the convention that framed the
rotibt'tutlnn, and who wss the first
Pn Hidmit under it. said in his fare
well addrtss that Cungruas should
"(promote, us n object of primary
impor'ance, ii Htitntions lor tlie gen
eral difl'uHi n of knowlelge." Tho.
Jeflenrn, the author of the Declara
tion of Ii.iteneni eiice. and Who ws
in his day the di tinulshed lender of
the Deniorratio pBrty, uv.a in nu arv
nnal njesage in 18(Mi:

great mean of tbe artlolea on wliloh Impost la

purposes of tbe public education, roada,

new channels of oointnunloation will be
onened between the htatea. the linea ol sep
aration will dilnppear, their interests will
be idontiSed and their unloa cemented by
new and Indiiaoluable lies.
In his last annual message, in 180H,
he again said: ".Shall the revenue be
reduced or shall it ot rather be ap
propriated to the improvement of
roads, canals, rivers, education and
other great foundations of proeperit
and union uider the powers whic
CotgTeea may already posetss, or such
amendments ot tbe constitution as
mav be approved by the HtaUsY"
With such men as tbo'o advocating
national aid to education, who can
doubt that It is a Democratic lneaiareT

I am iu ! 11 v or of it bt cause it ia ight,
berau'e it is necf siary, btcaute it is
indippeiinable. In a republic the peo
ple mutt b educated to tuMainthe
government, and nphold popular iu
BtitutK in. Men of wealth are able to
educate their children at priva'.e
schools, but the great iiiihs rf the peo
ple are laborers who are unable to ed
uctte their chiidrtn except at pnblic
fchoola. These are ofttn the moat
valuable portion ol tbe community,
and constitute the governing claaetce,
of the country. I am aware that it is
contended by some, but by only a few.
I tiust, that education uutita a man for
manual labor. This is a great ru intake,,
1'ioper olnrat'on qualities a man for
labor ol any Ithi'l, .int causes huu to
liouor it. A niau is not a mure horse
or mule, that is only valuab'e in pro
portion to the am jui t of tuauual labor
li perlorms; lie H given intellect
v. i. ich it is tiia duty to cult vate, and
Vthiih ti s him fer all the ri'lutiona of
life, Iucludirg labor. The better edu
cale l any community u I he more
prosperous it is, as we 1 as the more
nai'py. ror tlipse rn ons it is the
duty ol the government lo f outer, en
cou:st:e end maintain public schools.
In ovr State the people are not able by
dir.it tax&lioR ti u)R;n'a;n an eilicient
pub'ic Si hool BTstem. The taxation is
low very mary, niui yel there is a
grea deficiency. In many of the
counties the rate of taxation for sliocl
purposes amounts to '20, 30,
40, ana in soma counties to 50
eants on tbe $100 worth of proiertv,
besides the State tax, which is 10
cents on ilCO, and ytt we see that
there is great il'iteracy among our
people. Uur arhousiic popu'aticu is
t0'i,6-. Of there only :7o,sr7 are eu

These tjgucs it how how lit.le is
done even wirh the preteut hign rare

get it more appropristely than from
the Federal Government. Tbe Blair

erage ol $S00,?bl per annum. This,
aJded to our preeent tchool fund,
would give us $1,810,013, which piop-
erly managed would establish an
elllcieut svs'eru tf public schools.
This $l,&Mi,tU3 will be circulated
among the people, and will inthat
way be of great pecuniary benefit in
addition to lta educational advantages.

qneetion of national aid to education

tional aid or abandon our echool sys
tem hecinse the people of Tennessee
are nnable to bear sufficient taiation
to sux'ain an eflective avatem and any
other is worthless. While I highly
respett these who advocate a strict
cons "melon ni me constitution aim
who are against enla'ging the powers
of the Federal Government, yet 1
think they cany the doctrine too Ur
when they oppose national am to euu-
catirn. The appreciation ol money
to improve rivers in the flatts is a far
greater stretcn oi pow-rin u.e ruwi
Government , 'and baa a much more
centralizing tendetcy than national
aid to tducation, becauso in tho case
of river Improvement the Federal
Government employs the hands to do
the work aud controls tbe money,
hi'.e in national aid to education the
titate employs the teachers and con
trol the money.
As this measure la clearly constitu
tional and in accordsnce with Demo
cratic usage, lecgoixing, aa it does,
tbe righ's of the (States, it cannot be
objected to, because the Houthern

Mr. Cox. of North Carolina, ottered
a resolution instructing Mr. Morrison
to renew bis motion to consider the
tariff bill tomorrow.
Considerable opposition was mani
fested, however, aa Mr. Morrison him
self expressed a desire to be left free
to act in the matter aa seemed ben to
him. The resolution waa finally withdrawn.
Mr. Morrison then moved that the

member from each State to constitute
a committee which shall consider the
advisability of issuing an address to
the country explanatory of the position
of that element; tbe committee to re

Darwinism traces the origin of all

to a single species. Environment aud
natural variation are the factors iu
this development. But within the
historical period species have not
changed, and in the prehistoric period
there is no evidence that other than
tvetwo Darwinian factorj have not
been at work. In biology, too, there
are only indications and analogies,

evolution. By its doctrine of
the correlation of forc-6, evo

nomena, whether of mind or matter,
into modes of motion. Vital force,
life itft-lf, it tram-forms into a name
for a aubile combination of mechani

difl'eren'.iattd mechanical force the
evolutionist hypoi-tatizes an agent
which is mechanical only in a nebu
