If the HERALD needed any justi
fication for the opinion expressed
last week regarding the advance
paper put up by the company billed
to appear at the auditorium Monday
night, it came with the arrival of
the company itself, and later with
the performance as put on. The
day has long since gone when Pull
man will accept a ten cent show,
put on by would-be actors, and pay
the price of witnessing a good pro
duction, and Monday night's per
formance certainly met with its
"merited frost." Thirty-nine peo
ple were seated in the main body of
the auditorium, of whom at least 25,
and 1 possibly more, were admitted
on free passes, which were handed
out so freely Monday in a vain en
deavor to get an audience. We
have no quarrel with Mr. Soliday,
and no argument for him except to
remind him that a gentlemen
would not have indulged in the
violent outbreak of temper and
words he exhibited Monday. Ijt
was clearly within the right of this
paper, and a right which it should
have exercised years ago, to refuse
to longer print a lot of rot concern
ing attractions, and to accept from
the auditorium management his so
called "complimentary" tickets in
payment, which tickets were of no'
value to the HERALD, and Mr. Sol
iday should have recognized this
right at the time we returned to him
the tickets for the "In Dahomey"
show, informing him that we would
no longer exchange space, which is
a newspaper's stock in trade, for
valueless tickets. The HERALD
stands ready, as always, to assist in
advertising what we believe to be a
worthy attraction, but it will not
stultify itself by assisting the audi
torium management to get out an
audience when bilking companies
come this way.
Free School Books.
(Walla Walla Union)
In the near future the text book com
mission will engage in its regular every
five-year operation of ■electing text books
for the public schools of Washington for
the next five years. The reason they do
it is the law requires them to do so. It
is quite certain that tome, if not many,
changes will be made in the list of hooka
as there ia no end to the making of new \
books and the schemes of the book trust
to get into the pockets of the people.
They are the instigators of the new school
books every five years provision in the
This prospective change affords a fine
opportunity for the directors of the Walla
Walla schools to put in operation the
provision of the law authorizing them to
supply the pupils with school books at
the public cost and thus relieve the hun
dreds of parents in the city of the extra
burden imposed by the necessity of boy*
inn new School books next fall. Beattle
and Spokane have followed this plan
with eminent iticcess for seme yean;
Waitsburg and some other districts in
Walla Wailacounty have found it to
their advantage to do to. in those cities
it is found that by using public school
books the pupils are taught to be more
careful in the use of books, marking
them nith pencils and wilfully soiling,
"dogearing" and tearing the hooks being
prohibited; good marks being given for
clean books, tliinuK not possible when
each child has his or her own books.
(Trging th<* Tac una school directors to
adopt the system of free text hooks the
Ledger said :
"It saves thousands of dollars every
year to h community the size of Tacoma,
which has 9,000 pupils in the public
schools. It is in line with the practice
of the most progressive cities in public
school work and should be adopt
ed here. The economy effected amounts
to the saving of at least ail per cent of
the outlay for text hooks. This is saved
tn the people, though the school hoard's
expense at the start is increased. County
Superintendent Ben bow makes the ad
mirable suggestion that if the system is
here adopted pupils and graduates should
turn in their old hooks to be exchanged
hv the hoard upon the purchase of new
books. This is entirely practical and
imposes no hardship on any one."
