Reply to Birch.
TOTHEEDITOROP WILLMAR TRIBUNE:
From the Argus of Dec. 5th:
One of the Atwater teachers, Miss
Lewis, has resigned. One of the mem
bers of the schoolboard mentioned
the fact that teachers must not admin
ister corporal punishment and she just
resigned, she did.—Grove City Times.
"It was the most remarkable piece
of audacity that the editor ever heard
of in a sohool teacher's work with the
Board. The Clerk did exactly right
not to allow corporal punishment by
an under teacher. There is a princi
4, pal at thee Atwater schools, and if
^whipping is the remedy let the princ^
pi do the work. N teacher has a
right to whip a pupil, The day of the
•whippingpost' or the 'strap in the
school' has passed away with the
vent of the new civilization. If pupils
must be threshed, let the parents do
the work. If the teacher can not gov
ern a room of pupile without the 'rod,'
it is time she was doing some other bus
iness for a livelihood. The idea of a
•teacher insisting on her mode of gov
erning a school or a resignation of a
member of- the board, shows how she
viewed her position. The board did
wise in accepting her resignation, and
shows that the members are living in
the 19th century and not in the past
So far Mr. Birch's comments, or
rather harangue, on the item which ap
peared in the GroveCity Times. I am
very much snrprised to find that an
active member of a school board, and
also an ex-sup't of schools, should so
far forget himself as to make such
assertions as the above. My experi
ence as a teacher for several years,
and as a student of law, prompts me
to state that Miss Lewis not only acted
right, but did also act within the limits
of her professional capacity. And I
challenge Mr. Birch to prove the con
I am not interested in the ease sta
ted, aside from the principle involved.
It is a common supposition that a
teacher is not only not permitted to
inflict corporal punishment on an un
ruly child, but that he also lays him
self liable to an action if he does so.
This common fallacy is corroporated
by Mr. Birch, who says, that ••no
teacher has a right to whip a pupil.,'
By this statement we might be led to
infer that Mr. B. means also that, no
parent has aright to whip a child: but
later we find that the whipping is as
signed to the principal: and still later
in the same article it is assigned to
the parents. Now it happens that a
principal of a school is also a teacher,
consequently here Mr. B. over-rules his
We all know that the teacher occu
pies a position as loco parentis, dur
ing the absence of the latter: and the
law considers him as the authorized
agent of the paren. See Statutes of
Minnesota, (1894) Sec. 047". para

vol. viii, page 12022.
As for the rest of Mr. Birch's arti
cle, it contains no arguments whatever
simply dictatorial ridicule.
Hoping the above will enlighten not
only Mr. Birch and the general read
er, but perhaps some of my fellow
teachers, in regard to the school laws.
I am yours in the. interest of educa

REPUBLICAN LEADERS MEET

Chairman Carter Predicts Victory but
Says Not to Be Too Confident—Lively
Contest for Convention Between Chi

WASHINGTON, Dec. 9.—Senator El
kins gave a dinner to a number of
members of the Republican national
committee. There were also present
other prominent politicians of tha
party, among whom, were Chairman
Carter, J. S. Clarkson of Iowa, J. H.
Manley of Maine, Powell Clayton of
Arkansas, William Campbell of Illi

Samuel Fessenden of Conneoticut and
Senator Quay of Pennsylvania. While
no particular object was stated for the
gathering, it is known that the meet
ing developed into a discussion of party
politics and what was best to be done
during the next campaign. It was not
intended that the meeting should be in
the interest of any candidate and, in.
fact, among the gentlemen present
there were friends of all the candidates.

To a Degree of Carelessness.
He thought the grave questions before
the country might well cause the Re
publicans to pause and reflect. The
president had placed himself squarely
in favor of retiring the credit money of
the country. It was possible that the
financial centers of the countiy agreed
with him. There is no doubt that a
course of that kind, if pursued, would
make Populistic votes. Mr. Carter
called attention to what he styled the
remarkable growth of the Populist vote.
He said that it had increased 240 per
cent during the past three years and it
was well for the Republicans to take
this into consideration.
Mr. Carter was charged with being a
pessimist and different members of the
committee said that with a platform
enunciating straight Republican princi
ples there could be no doubt of victory

BROUGHT BEFORE TH E SENATORS
Cuban and Venezuelan Resolutions Are
WASHINGTON, Dec. 4.—The senate
has plunged into real business. Nat
urally the president's message attracted
the main attention of the day, but aside
from this there were stirring resolutions
on the Monroe doctrine and the Cuban
rebellion, and after that the usual
deluge of bills and resolutions running
far up into the hundreds.
The message was given the closest at
tention from all quarters of the cham
ber. At its conclusion Mr. Lodge of
Massachusetts offered a resolution vig
orous in terms reaffirming the principles
of the Monroe doctrine and presenting
them in such form as to permit their
enactment as a permanent law, rather
than an expression of the policy advo
cated by President Monroe. In the
same line was a resolution by Mr. Cul

Allen (Pop., Neb.). The Cuban situa

The A\ Be
Congress Promises to
WASHINGTON, Dec. 9.—The house
programme this week is a dreary waste.
Until the committees are appointed the
machinery of the house is blocked and
nothing can be done save by unani
mous consent. Any resolution that
might be presented—and it is in this
form that the sensations that agitate
the lower branch of congress spring—
would go down before a single objec
tion. For this reason no attempt will
be made to do anything until Speaker
Reed announces his committees, which
he now expects to have ready at the
end of the week. Last week several
hundred bills were introduced and it is
•probable that fully as many will be
started on their journey to the statute
books this week.
Senators Will Caucus.
The probabilities are that the week
in the senate will be given up largely to
caucusing by all parties and that the
senate daily sessions will be brief, with
little effort at legislation. The intro
duction of bills will be continued,
though no work of consequence can be
done until the committees are filled.
There is nothing on the calendar except
two speeches, one by Senator Morgan
on the Bering sea question, and the
other by Senator Cullom on his Monroe
doctrine resolution. It is understood
that Senator Morgan will pay his re
spects, to Ambassador Pauncefote and

Discovery of a Long Forgotten Rule in
the United States Senate.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 7.—The Post says:
After the senate Republican caucus
adjourned the discovery was made that
one of the senate rules allows the ap
pointment of the members of the com
mittees, except the chairman, by a plu
rality of the votes cast. Inquiry shows
this rule, the existence of which had
been forgotten, was put into operation
as long ago as 1820, and has continued
in force ever since. It has become
practically obsolete by reason of the fact
that for many years the majority and
minority sides have arranged their rep
resentation respectively, and the slate
thus prepared has been agreed to by
unanimous consent, without the formal
ity of a ballot. The existence of this
rule presents a most interesting phase
of the senate situation. Under it the
Republicans can elect the members of
the committees, except the chairman,
because they have beyond doubt a plu
rality of the senate, unless all the Pop
ulists should vote with the Democrats

thirsty and starts out:
"A short time is just as good as

THE ANSWER IS HEBE
WASHINGTON, Deo. 9.—The reply of
Lord Salisbury to Secretary Olney's
note—of instructions to Ambassador
Bayard relative to the "Venezuelan
boundary dispute was delivered to Sec
retary Olney at noon. Donelson, the
messenger of the British embassy, came
early to the state department with a
note from Sir Julian Pauncefote, asking
for an appointment to see the secretary.
This was arranged speedily, and Sir
Julian presented the note in person to
the secretary, the ambassador himself
reading its contents to Mr. Olney, as is
the custom when important documents
For some reason the state department
officials took steps to prevent the fact
that the note had been delivered from
gaining publicity, but without avail.
At the British embassy, there was the
same indisposition to give any publicity
to the proceedings. All inquiry as to
the nature of the note failed to secure a
response from any official, and it prob
ably will be preserved as an official se
cret as far as the Washington authori
ties are concerned, until the president,
upon his return, has had an opportunity
to consider it and send it to congress,
but it is known that it is on the same
general lines indicated in the Associated
Press dispatches of this week.

Estimates From a Missionary Regarding
MEMPHIS, Tenn., Deo. 9.—The rela

reside in Memphis, are in receipt of a
letter relative to the Armenian wars.
Mr. and Mrs. Bliss are native. Mem
ph-ans and are connected with the
American Bible society in Constanti
nople. Mrs. Bliss says:
"We are having an anxioas time here
and know not what to expect. At Har
poot all but four of our missionary
houses have been destroyed and these
were looted. At Erzeroum 20,000
armed Armenians were killed in less
than 10 days. There is no doubt that
all these outrages are committed with
the sanction of the sultan. The Bul
garian massacres were but a drop in the
bucket^- Of course there was the same
fiendish cruelties at that time, but not
to be compared with this in extent.
Over 100,000 Armenians have been
butchered, mostly men, leaving women
and children in awful poverty, with
winter upon them.

LOUISVILLE, Dec. 9.—The Democrats
won in the special election in the Forty
eighth legislative district, sending A. J.

of 468 over Charles A. Blatz, the Re

on jaint ballot, and the balloting for
United States senator to succeed Black

On joint ballot the "Republicans and
Democrats will have 58 votes each and
the Populists 2, and it is pretty well as
sured that the Populist vote will split.
