STATEMENT OF FACTS.
As certain statements have recently
been circulated in relation to tbe
acta of the present board of trnstees of
this school district, the Journal-Miner
has made somo effort to become fa
miliar witb conditions aa they exist
and gives the public the result
Our public schools have never
reached a higher standard of efficiency
than undor the management of tbe
present board. Thoy have made every
effort to give tbe patrons tbe beat ser
vice possible,not only in tbe selection
of teachers, but in business manage
ment aa well. In so doing they have
incurred tho ill-wilt of a very few
persons. Some whose friends or rela
tives have not secured places upon the
teaching force, others who have placed
personal greed or gain above tbe wel
fare of the district. In the construc
tion of tbe new scbool building which
has met tbe hearty approval of the
public in general, criticism has been
made, because the board has not per
mitted any advantage to be taken of
the interest of the public.
A report has been circulated tbat
the board bas refused to exhibit the
account of tbe expenditures made upon
the new building. From what tbe
Journal-Miner can leain all of the
vouchers for tbe payment of money
by the board, must go to the county
supexintendent of schools, Professor
Jolly. It is he who issues the war
rants for the payment of tbe money,
and he cannot do so without these
vouchers authorizing bim so to do,
and the board does not handle a cent
of the school money. These'vouchers
are on file in Prof. Jolly's office, and
open to the inspection of any one who
may take tbe trouble to examine
them. The board of trustees has also
a careful and detailed record of all
vouchers issued, which Is kept in tbe
office of Superintendent Billingburst
at bis office in the new building,
which are also open to inspection.
Another report bas been circulated
that the present board is uncompro
misingly opposed to tbe erection of a
primary department in West Prescott.
Tbe action of the board in following
the instructions of the patrons of tbe
district, pbould be a refutation of
such a statement We have it however
lrom the board, that it is not opposed
to taking such action as may be de
sired by tbe people of tbe district,
and individually favor the establish
ment of such schools and buildings
as they may be instructed to build.
In a community the size of Pres
cott, It is impossible to please all of
the people, and some criticism has
been made in tbe erection of tbe new
building. It is urged that the board
should have const! reltd two build
inga, one in West Pritcolt tbe other
upon the present site. The board
could not have done this under the
expressed wish and directions of the
voters. To have done this would not
only have been unwarranted but un
lawful, as well.
A full investigation into all of these
matters can be easily made, and we
believe tbat no criticism can be made
when tbe facts are known.
The Journal-Miner bas taken th
trouble to do this, for tbe pnrpose of
allowing those who may so desire to
verify the truth of the statements
made. We are interested in tbe
schools and desire that they are kept
at their present high standard, and
believe tbat the interests of the pat
rons w.iil be hotter served by tbe pres
ent board. A, change at this time will
be at least experimental, and no mat
ter tbe capabilities of a successor to
Judge Andrews, tbe person would be
handicapped by the lack of a full
knowledge of the policy and plans of
the board, which we believe will be
of untold value to every parent and
pupil of the district

OPPOSES NEGRO EDUCATION.
Governor Vardeman of Mississippi
has vetoed a bill entitled "An act for
support of the state normal school at
Holly Springs." The school in ques
tion is a- training school for negro
teachers, and has been supported by
tbe state several years. The present
legislature made tbe usual appropria
tion of 810,000, but Gov. Vardeman
returned it with a two colnmn mes
sage, in which he savs he would sign
it if he "thought tbe character of ed
ucation could product beneficial re
sults, but it does not Literary ed
ucation, the knowledge of booKS, does
not seem to produce any good, sub
stantial results with tbe negro, but
serves rather to sharpen his cunning,
breed hopes that can not be fulfilled,
inspires aspirations that can not be
gratified, creates an inclination to
avoid honest " labor, promotes indo
lence and, in turn, leads to crime.
"I wish it understood tbat my ob
jection to this bill does not grow out
of a spirit of race hatred. On the
contrary, I wish the race well, j
should liko to see it developed along
moral and industrial lines until it
shall become a positive factor for good
rather than a menace to our oiviliza
tion, a blessing rather than a curse.
The only hope for the consummation
of tbat wish is to suppress tbe ignor
ant time servers of the north and
south and give the negro that which
tbe negro needs." Tbe message is said
to have created a profound sensation
in tbe legislature.
Admiral Evans has been compli
mented by the navy department for
the remarkable cruise of his Asiatic
fleet of war ships recently, in which
tbey covered a distance of 8,500 miles
without a single accident or delay of
any kind. The cruise was from Yoko
hama to Honolulu, thence to the Phil
ippines, touching en route at Guam.
Tbe cruise was made during mid
winter, but when the ships arrived at
Cavite they were found to be in good
condition, without need of repair.

The Los Angeles Times says: "It
is an interesting fact that all tbe three
democrats on the supreme bench were
against tbe merger decision and all

Judging from the disorder tbat has
prevailed in recent democratic state
