The Bx&aination Farce.
There may be a greater and more un
just farce imposed upon a class of peo
ple than the teachers' examinations of
which our city saw an example Fri
day, but we do not know of it. There
is neither reason nor good policy in the
Upon what grounds does the State
compel every teacher to go through an
examination at least once in three
years? Is it because the teacher may
forget what she has known? The per
Bon, -who, rehearsing lessons eight
months in the year, would do that
ought not to be in the school room as
Is it a test of the teacher's ability?
ThM-P TiRvpr was a falser one. Mere
scholarship is no more a criterion of a
teacher's abUity to govern a school suc
cessfully than red paint on the bell
rope is of a locomotive's capability for
speed "Hundreds of teachers have
made lamentable failures in the exami
nation Imt hsve gffl&e into the school
room and done most satisfactory work
and proven themselves true educators.
No other profession is so degraded.
The lawyer or doctor, though they may
be but poor sticks, when once admitted
to practice are not re-examined.
Then there is an element of favorit
ism about it that makes it look like a
quiet little game to boost the State
Normal school. The veriest greenhorn
who can graduate from the institution
will get a life certificate, while the
principal or superintendent in a Kansas
village or city, no matter how able or
how well educated, if he has not
paid his tribute to the State Normal,
must be hauled over the coals at least
The questions given out were a
good sample of the idiocyfoisted J upon
our teachers. They indicate a hide
bound old-fogyism on the part of the
framera that belongs to the years "befo'
do wah." They are questions th.at have
absolutely nothing to do with practical
life but are many of them sphinx-like
puzzles at the answers of which the
weary applicants can only guess. Quei
tions have been asked in phssiology in
this county that the best physicians
in the city admitted they could not
answer without reference to their
Nearly $300 are paid in this county
every year by applicants for permission
to go through this farce. Multiply
this by the 106 counties of Kansas and
see what we are paying for this relic of
barbarism. Every, school man will
laugh at it as a magnificent piece of
foolishness but no step is taken to rem
edy the evil or to supply our State with
a sensible certificate system.
We are not saying that teachers
should be recklessly" allowed to enter
the school room for teaching is a high
and important sailing. But we do say
that when once, Tinder strict regula
tions, a person has been vested with
the right to instruct, it is rank injustice,
if that person continues to teach, to
compel another examination unless the
applicant wishes to rise higher in the
profession. Any other position is an
insult to the great army of teachers
and turns our institutes, which should
be for higher things, oftentimes into
mere cramming machines.
Kansas educators should rise in their
might and make a determined stand
for such recognition in this State as

Abfiut these times the Democrats
would like to hear of the sinking of a
west-bonnd Atlantic steamer with the
loss of at least one passenger.
The Democratic New York Star
observes: "It is an open secret that

supposed to be taken from the encyclo

The Indiana Dems are trying to stem
the tide of Harrison enthusiasm with
such campaign documents as the
alleged Foster letter. Such wild work
as that will insure the State to Repub

the stars and stripes like the Republi

Cleveland's biography closed his record
with the startling information that
Boss Grover "was renominated in

An attempt was recently made in
Austria to prevent school mar'ms from

As the campaign goes rolling gaily
down the grooves of time, we are more
and more impressed with the idea that
the Nation will overwhelmingly indorse
President Cleveland's policy as ex

We'll stand by him on that until the
sun goes down on election day, even

Wages and the Tariff.
There is a wide-spread ignorance
upon the relation between the rate of
wages paid workingmen and the rate
of tariff imposed upon articles of for
Certain papers, like our 'steemed
con temp., the Gazette, think they are
arguing on the tariff question when
they repeat that no one can prove that
protection increases wages. Then they
observe, with all the solemnity of an
owl, that wages are always higher in
new countries than in old, that they
are mgner in .England now ttian m
Germany or France, and that it is a
fraudulent device of protectionists to
attribute the admitted rise in wages in
1860 to the protective tariff.
The facts in the case are, however,
as the New York Tribune says, that
the only confusion of mind about this
matter is with those who know least
about work or wages. Workingmen
and employers both know that the pol
icy which encourages an increase in the
number of establishments, and conse
quently in the demand for labor, nec
essarily helps to advance wages. But
it is worth while to notice some of the
Wages were higher in Great Britain,
before that country ceased to protect
its industries, than in Germany or
France, before these countries began to
protect. For forty years Great Britain
has been trying free trade, and for a
few years Germany and France have
been trying protection. The conse
quence is that in Germany and France
wages are now rising, while in Great
Britain a serious decline has been pre
vented only by the power of trade as
sociations, which do nevertheless cut
down actual though not nominal wages,
when they compel many establishments
and thousands of men to be idle in or
der that the rest may get some work at
the old rates.
This country is comparatively new,
true. It was newer in 1860, when
Democratic free trade had its latest
teste As a country gets old, according
to free-trade theories, wages fall. As
this country gets old the fact is that
wages rise; they are 38 per cent higher,
to say the least, than they were when
the Democratic policy ceased to govern.
The advance here has been in spite of
the most marvellous migration of labor
ever known in human history. Over
8,000,000 workers have come to this
country and yet wages have risen;
something like half of them have come
from Great Britain, and yet wages
there have risen comparatively not at
The man who cannot understand
facts such as these may at least be capa
ble of comprehending that the closing
of one mill out of three in any town
will tend to put down wages there.
The men thrown out of work will seek
it at the other mills, and if not in that
town then elsewhere. So the stoppage
of thousands of mills, in consequence
of the passage of a Democratic Tariff
bill, would throw out of work a great
army of workingmen. These would
seek work in other places, driving down
wages there, for dire necessity would
compel them to underbid somebody
else or to starve.
But where else, in what other occu
pation, are these men to find work?
Not in farming, for thousands of farm
workers are to be thrown out of work;
they are now required to take care of
sheep, and wool-growing will be made
unprofitable by the same bill. Thous
ands more are engaged in raising other
products which it would be unprofitable
to raise after the Mills bill had passed.
New land, and more wheat-growing?
Does not everybody know that the
wheat market is so supplied already
that prices run close to the cost of rais
ing and transporting? What else are
these men to do? Until the free-trade
theorists answer, they have no business
to reiterate the impudent pretence that
the tariff has nothing to do with wages.

The great Empire State attracts con
siderable attention in the campaign,
and people are anxious to know exactly
how the New Yorkers take General
Harrison's .candidacy, so good an
authority as the Rochester Democrat
has this to say regarding it:
In New York it is plainly discerned
that no more available candidate than
is General Harrison could have been
selected. The most staunch of the old
"stalwarts" and the aaost earnest of
"halfbreeds" are alike enthusiastic for
him. There is no ripple of dissent in
any place in the State. Republicans
vie with each other as to who can do
the most effective service. The Repub

since 1884. This means much.
