down" their articles as much as possible.

well calculated to elicit the truth and are will

where the articles are succinctly and temper
The lirenhara Dinner thinks the Light
was premature In its criticism upon State En
gineer Iltitlon, and that It should have waited
for his official report, which we should most
certainly have done had Mr. Brilton refrained
from communicating his opinions to several
newspspers In advance of his official report,
lie whitewashed the railroads with a free
brush. Can the Banner inform us who pro

around on his tour of Inspection,
The following extract from the National
Republican shows how harmonious the Dem
ocratic parly ii, and how its greed for office
sows the seed of discord broadcast In its
ranks, the moment It attains a slice of the
official loaf. The picture is not at all compli
mentary to the palriloism and purily of a party
which lays claim ts every shred and scrap of
the purity and patriotism floating about la the
Union. Greediness of office does nut com.
port exietly with patriotism and purity. But
Mr. Atkins charges Speaker Carlisle with
patriotism of an eipress promise a thing
considered as highly ungentlemanly in all
civilized nations, by men who claim to be
gentlemen, but he accuses him of entering
into a corrupt pool, or ring, with Winter'
smith, Clark and Lccdom, to secure his elcC'
lion as Speaker, That Is a serious charge
and comes from a life long Democrat, who
has never flinched, or filtered. Mr. Atkins
hat not denied the statement of his views
made by the Republican, and for that reason
the same may be taken to be true, however
damaging It may be to Speaker Carlisle and
the Democratic party. The great reform
party is In need of reformation Itself from eel
lir to cockloft, and we fear a thorough refor
mation would about render it Insolvent:
General J. D. C. Atkins, of Tennessee,
who was the defeated candidate for the nlace
of Clerk of the House, is in a bad state of
mma over the result, lie Is outspoken and
venomous In his denunciation of the methods
employed to defeat him. His account of the
battle is not complimentary to Mr. Carlisle.
and he Intimates that a man mar even aspire
to the distinculshed part of Sneaker, and vet
break his word. General Atkins is one of
the Tennesseeans who has been conspicuous
uy a song icrra oi service in congress. lie
was first elected io l8;6.and served two terms
before the war. During the war he was a
member of the Confederate Conerets. and
since the war he has served four terms in the
United btates Congress, bince he was 21
years old he has been almost continuously in
hleh office, and It may be presumed that he is
a strong man In Tennessee. He claims that
an overwhelming msjnrity of Democrats In
the present House promised to vote lor him.
His successful opponent was Genersl lohn
B. Clark, of Missouri, who has served five
terms in Congress, General Atkins openly
asserts that he was defeated by shameless
trickery. He said yesterday, "I want the
people to know that I would not have ac
cented the Clerkship of the House
with the conditions under which It Is now
occupied. I was simply beaten out of
It by a ring and by a bulldozing process that
do not reflect anv credit upon themenwho en
gineered it. If all the members who were
pledged to me nau votea lor me i snouia nav
been elected bv 2t maloritv. and, as it was. i
was elected my a majority of 4. But the
changes that followed in consequence of the
bullying process that was employed were
enouirh to beat roe. and that was the only
thing that did beat mc. In fact, I was beaten
by a ring organized lor that purpose."
In a further conversation with friends Gen
cral Atkins said that the "ring" against lilm
comDrlsed. amoni? others. Mr. Carlisle, Mr,
Wintersmltb, and Mr. Leedom. "I had the
positive promise." said he. "of Mr Carlisle
vjte for me for Clerk, and yet In the caucus
ne went right up ana votea sor warx. -Genersl
Atkins further Intimated that
cumber of Tennesseans who voted for Carlisle
would not have done so If they had antici
pated the act of treachery. The General Is
certainly mad all through at the way in which
he has been (rested, and there is no doubt
but that he will project a first-class row in the
Democratic camp on account 01 It,
It fkiquently happens' thai an orator Is a
very Indifferent writer; that the molt admira
ble writer Is a slouch as an orator; that a
general of the first class Is neither a writer or
an orator; that a painter Isno shoemskcr, and
shoemaker It no .painter, and so on to the
end of the chapter. Sir Isaac Newton was a
great philosopher and mathematician, but it
Is reported of him that he cut a hole in his
door for his cat, and then cut a smaller hole
for her kittens. A military man may handle
brigade finely, and yet be a failure as a
corps commander. We concede that Pro
fessor llalbcdl Is an accomplished scholar and
good teacher, that he Is "a round pin in a
round hole," as a teacher, but it by no means
follows that he would make a good President
f a railroad, a successful hotel keeper, a
useful cow boy, a first-class editor, or a good
President of a college, because each of these
callings demands capacities adapted to Its
peculiar duties. Consequently, when Pro
fessor llalbcdl branches out from his own
profession, wherein we admit him to be a pro
ficient, his opinions are of no more worth than
those of any oilier well educated man. It is
disparagement of his fitness as a teacher
to doubt his ability to drive a coach and four,
or to edit Texas Siftings, or to run a hotel, or
to act as a Sheriff, simply for the reason
that his training and experience as a teacher
has not fitted him for these vocations. A man
may be a tip top scholar and yet a poor In
structor, from lack of executive ability and
the faculty of Imparling knowledge, and he
may be a capital instructor and yet a poor
executive or administrative head of the public
school system of a county or a district.
IWcssor Halbedl has lost sight of this great
truth, and fallen Into a vicious habit of gen
eralization, which is the besetting sin of the
age. Every man knows it to be a fact, that
one-half of the 200 county judges in Texas are
utterly wanting In suitableness for the heads of
public schools in the county, and that the
other half have judicial duties enough to de
mand their undivided time and attention If
they are properly discharged, and the logical
sequence from this state of facts is that a
change is absolutely necessary In order to
render the public schools efficient. The
Lic.tlT is not after currying the favor bf this
or that man, not of whitewashing this or that
rficer, because it depends upon the people
for Its supports, and therefore it can afford to
pronounce the present school system a botch.
The county judges have no more business
being the head of the public schools in their
counties than the sheriffs, the county clerks
or district clerks, and all men gifted with
common sense fully comprehend this
truth. It is a fact, which is as
plain as a knot on a tree, and the
Light cannot close its eyes to it. We
do not believe la panaceas or cureall, nor
In a bed of I'rocrustes, to which everything Is
to be fitted and adjusted, hence we decidedly
dissent from Professor Ilalbedl'a general
maxim that ''wise supervision will make com
petent teachers." It is a snare and 1 de
lusion, as are all universal maxims. The
Supervisor can only employ the most
competent of those who offer he cannot com
pel men and women to become teachers,
nolens volens, and this oae fact knocks all
the underpinning from under Professor Hal
bedl's universal maxim or theory and tumbles
It Into the mud. Then, a person may possess
scholorship to a high degjee, and may pass a
most splendid examination, and yet lack the
patience, decision and the suavitcr In modo
wilb the fortiter in re, which a successful
teacher must possess. The "wise super
vision" cannot impart these trails and quali
ties any more than It can transform a dunce
into a genius, or "gather figs from thistles."
Put a man in charge of the public schools
and make that his exclusive business and he
will probably do much better than one who
has half a dozen Irons in the fire at once.
Separate the public schools from politics and
partizanship and you will vastly improve
them In all respects. Hedge them in from
cliques and rings and you elevate them to a
higher plane of dignity and usefulness. We
are decidedly in favor of a change and an im
provement in the school system ; but, In our
judgment, the views of Professor Halbedl are
theoretical and unsound.
