Second Day of the State Convention of
Higher Education. .
An Able Paper by Prof. Pfcelps — Thanks to
Col. Folwell, Etc.
The state convention of the superintendents,
principals and teachers of the high schools
throughout the state, concluded its labors a little
before Ip. m., yesterday. Although the hour
for meeting had been fixed at 9a. m. it was
nearly 9:30 p. m. before the assemblage was
called to order by President Folwell. In addition
to those present on the first day's session, the
following were reported yesterday, viz;
L. Bliss, principal of the High school of Man
torville. :.". ■-'■"-■ : , : - :
F. H. Mohn, principal of St. Olafs school at
F. T. Wilson, teacher of science in the High
ichool of Stillwater.
J. C. Bryant, principal of the Garfield school
»f St Paul.
W. Q. Curtis, superintendent of schools of
J. D. Bond, teacher of pemnanspip in the
schools of St. Paul.
It was expected that Gov. Hubbard would be
present and deliver a short address, but other
pressing engagements of an official character
prevented him from doing so.
The proceedings were opened with prayer by
*,he Hey. Mr. McLaren, of St. Paul, after which
the president announced that the first business
ju order on the programme of the day was a pa
per by Prof. W. F. Phclps, of Winona, upon the
subject of "The Supervision of Graded Schools."
The paper was quite a lengthy one, and charac
terized throughout by that vigorous thought,
and incisive sentences peculiar to this well
known scholar and learned gentleman, who has
for so long a time occupied a front rank among
the educators of the of the state, and has done
en much toward elevating the standard of learn
ing in Minnesota. After a short introductory,
Prof. Phelps plunged at once into hissubject.and
said that in the first place he would observe that
It is most unfortunate for the interests of educa
tion that neither the masses of the people nor
their servants, the boards of education and
school officers gent-rally have yet come
to realize so fully as they ought to do the hu
prcmc importance of skilled labor in the school
room. While in all the material and industrial
pursuits of — manufacturing, the construc
tion and operating of railroads, steam and elec
trical engineering, mining and kindred occupa
tions then is a: ways a demand for special knowl
2dge and technical skill, and while experts in
these departments of activity are rewarded
according to the intelligence, ingenuity and the
perfection exhibited in their work. In the school
where the foundations of all excellence ought to
be trad, where mind is to be cultivated, habits
are to be formed and character moulded, we too
frequently find Inexperience and deplorable lack
of that special knowledge and professional ability
which more than any and everywhere else, ought
to be the most highly valued and substantially
appreciated. And no wherein the school system
in professional knowledge so needful, as in the
Boperinteudency or in the principalsbip where
the incumbents of these office* are expected
really to fulfill their functions and discharge the
duties appertaining to their positions. A super
intendent or principal of a graded school should
be familiar with the whole field of work to be
done u tiller his case. Ho ought to know more
than all his subordinate?, even In their individ
ual specialties. As a scholar he ought to be able
to teach them all. Ah an expert educator and
urn v professional adviser mid director he should
be quick to note excellences or errors in organi
zation, management, discipline and methods of
instruction and bo equally able and free and
gifted In offering words of approval or caution
as the case may be and in pointing out a better
way whtsre a better way is needed. In brief the
head of a school or system of schools should be
tine who by his talents, scholarship, professional
acquirements, mauliness of character and practi
cal wisdom can command the respect of his
pupils and of the public. This Is the foundation
of success. This wanting, all is wanting.
Hence a great step will have been gained ill the
administration of schools when the necessities of
these qualities is distinctly recognized and the
policy of putting the right man in the right place
becomes the rule of action. The question of
comparative coal i* unworthy of attention. We
must have able, skillful directors of education at
whatever reasonable cost. That there isa value
received to be looked for in the administration
of schools, us well as in the operation of a rail
way, the management of manufactories
or any other business enterprise is a proposition
that ought to need no demonstration during tin'
last year of the nineteenth century. The learned
gentleman, after commending these earnest
words to the boards of education anil their con
stituents, the i pie, lie recommended that they
should exact as the Inexorable condition of their
appolnments to these high places of trust and
administration either proved experience and
skill or thorough special preparation. ! If this is
done we shall certainly be able to secure cither
the one or the other. In the absence of tie- ex
perience the special professional preparation will
be forthcoming, and work will lie done that will
be ii credit to tin- age In which we live. Prof.
Phelps then continued at length to give advice to
those who might occupy these important posi
tions in regard to their conduct, management
ami control of the schools under their charge,
concluding that a fruitful source of improvement
to superintendents and young teachers would be
the visitation of other schools and intercourse
with persons of ripe and varied experience.
These opportunities should not be neglected.
Institutes, education conventions, and
similar gatherings should always be resorted' to
when possible as among the most valuable
sources of inspiration and professional growth.
In a word, while acquiring that persons) expe
rience anil power Which i- the basis of all success
strive to make tin- experience of all men and nil
the ages tributary to your own and you will go
forth to do valiant service" to humanity in the
grandest Held that Is henceforth to bo opened to
human effort or to the loftiest aspirations of a
chastened and worth) ambition.
At the conclusion or Prof. I'hclps' paper lie
whs loudly applauded and several members of
the convention paid his paper ■> high compliment
and a unanimous desire expressed that it should
bo printed, which Superintendent Kelhle said
wonlil '"■ done in the manual.

THE BOY BANK ROBBER.
No Clue as to His Wherebouts — Ar
rangements tor His Arrest.
The police authorities are making extra exer
tions to effect the capture of Edward Mason, the
whilom boy messenger and assistant book-keeper
of the People's^bank of East Seventh street who
skipped out with $6,000 of the bank's money
last Saturday night. Up to iast night nothing
had been learned of his whereabouts, but it is
pretty definitely settled that he did not go east
and it is thought that he has placed the Canadian
line at Manitoba between himself and justice. It
is also established that he was accompanied in
his flight by a chum named Chas. Parker as the
twain were constant chums, and when last seen
they were together.
Yesterday Chief of Police Clark sent out 1,000
postal cards of which the following is a copy :

When hizzoner got onto the perch yesterday
he was greeted by a solid phalanx of drunkards.
In fact the bull pen contained nothing but
drunks, and they were as dizzy a looking gang as
has been up in a long time. In all there were
just nine drunks on the docket, and what a field

Mr. Cough or any of the other advocates vi total

a nickel they went oat.
The only other case of note was that of Wm.
Williams, lie in a railroad engineer, and bo
wears a pug nose and a fancy necktie. The poor
fellow had been on a spree for several days and
he was just on the verge of the jim jams. He
was sent out for fifteen days.

All the Koads Offering Induce
ments to the Migratory
Rates Breaking: Southward, Demoral
ized Eastward and Shaky
Another Move in the East for Doing Away
AVith the Fast Freight Lines.
Another Paascnger War.
[Chicago Times, 27-1
It is unnecessary to repeat that passenger
rates out of Chicago, east and south, have been
demoralized for some time. Heavy reductions
have been obtainable through the scalpers to al
most any point, but as yet no concession has
been offered openly over the counters of the
various roads. Since the demoralization among
the eastern lines, matters have been growing
from bad to worse over the roads running from
Chicago to the Ohio river and points south, and
it has been feared that the disastrous war of a
year ago would be repeated. That these antici
pations have not been groundless is shown by
the announcement to-day of an open cut on pas
senger rates to Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Louis
ville, and all points south by the Eastern Illinois,
The rates to go into effect to-day over that line,
and the tariff rates are as follows :
Full Cut Round
Chicago to — rate. rate. trip.
Indianapolis 55 50 §3 75 $7 00
Cincinnati 8 85 6 00 11 75
Louisville • 9 00 6 50 12 50
William Hill, general passenger agent of the
Eastern Illinois, was asked yesterday, the occa
sion of this reductjpn, and he replied that it was
done in self-protection. His competitors had
for some time been cutting rates, not only
through the medium of scalpers, but some o£
them had violated tbc pool agreement over their
counters. His people had stood it as long as
they could, and now proposed to meet any rates
made. His line had a differential of $1 to Cin
cinnati and 75 cents' to Indianapolis, and the
rates they would a,9npi}npe wonld be the rates at
which the tickets of their competitors were sell
ing, minus these differentials.
John C. Tucker, general' agent of the Kanka
kee line, admitted yesterday that the outlook
was <i little dismai. Ho had heard of no open
cut, but wa.s convinced that there were irregu
larities on the quiet. As far as he knew his line
would meet any rate made by a competitor
Frank ). Field, ticket agent of the Pan-Handle
snkl that his line was doing nothing but protect
ing itself against the Irregularities of its compe
titors. Hi; emphatically denied the report that
his people were dealing with scalpers. He thought
the outlook anything but promising, but if any
rate was cut he wouid not be backward in meet
E. C. Mcf'ormick, general agent of the Monon,
admitted that rates were badly demoralized, but
insisted that his line was strictly maintaining
tariff. He has informed General Passenger
Agent Baldwin of the current rumors, and wbb
awaiting instructions. He had little doubt that
any open cut would be promptly met.
There is no doubt that the demoralization of
last year between the Ohio river lines i- to be
repeated, and there is every prospect that the
war will be waged with more vigor than ever
Tin; Atlantic & J'aeijir. Suit.
New York, Aug. 27. Judge Wallace in the
United States circuit court rendered a decision
ordering the judgment for the defendants in the
suit of William Keed against the Atlantic &
Pacific Itailroad company. The plaintiff is one
of the stockholders of Pacific road and he sues
to prevent the directors of the corporation ac
cepting the surrender of a lease made by the
corporation to defendant. In his decision
Judge Wallace says : "It seems the lease of all
it* property to the defendant for liinty-nine
years, with all power to mortgage the Pacific
railroad, practically abdicated all its functions,
dissolved its relations with the stockholders, and
constituted its stockholders creditors of the
defendant for nil practical purposes. The cor
poration was as defunct as anything short of a
judgment of dissolution could make it, and this
was the result contemplated by all parties to the
The *<i*t Freight Zinc.
BOSTON, Aug. 25. — The Boston & Maine and
the eastern>railro4d companies have announced
their determination to prorate no longer with
any western connection in freight trade. This
is construed as ■ blow direct at the fast freight
lines, and has caused consternation among the
advocate! of the system, Many assert that this
action, following so closely upon the heels of a
similar move by the Wabash. will cause a stam
pede from the rapport of fast freight
lines, and that their day is over.
Leading officials of . the Boston and
Maine and eastern roads say that they have long
regarded the expense incident to the main
tenance of fast freight lines is unncccessary.
This line was mdlspensible when the longest
roads composed not more than 800 miles, but
since, consolidation had made practically through
lines between the east and west the necessity of
fast freight lines had increased. It- is said that
the Brie intends to reduce its live fast freight
lines to one. General satisfaction i* expressed by
prominent railroad officials at this movement
toward the reduction of operating expenses.
Chicago, Aug. 25. — An ingenious and exten
sive ticket swindle has been discovered by the
st. I (mis & San Francisco management. The
operators purchased a ticket to some suburban
point for a mere pittance, and by some chemical
device the name of the station is erased. The
ticket is thus left unmarked, the holder tilling in
the name of any station at his pleasure. Two St.
Louis scalpers are said to "stand in" with the
operators and purchase all the spnrions tickets
offered, In pursuance of the discovery General
Passenger Agent Wtshart, of the 'Frisco line, has
issued the following circular letter:
"Information has just reached me that a sys
tem of forgery is being practiced upon skeleton
tickets of this company's issue. Your attention
is particularly called to the necessity of using
the greatest of caution in the handling of this
character of tickets reading via this lino. We
are engaged in an effort to detect the guilty party
and wo respectfully invite from you any infor
mation yon may be able to give leading to the
arrest of this class of forgers."
Tim Knatern I'n/tiir Rate Complica
The passenger rate complications from Chi
cago east remain unchanged. All the roads con
tinue to do their fighting by paying high com
missions to scalpers and steamship agents bat
none of them have yet made an open redaction.
It Is probable, however, that some decisive ac
tion will be taken in a day or two. Traffic Mana
ger Reeve was expected in Chicago yesterday
from Detroit, where he has been In consultation
with General Manager Spicer, and the represen
tative? of nnti-Yanderbilt ronds are expected to
meet upon bis return and decide upon action. It
is thought they will agree to make an oi>cn re
duction in rates to SIS or Sii from Chicago to
General Passenger Agent Johnson says that as
far a« Lake v -re is concerned no commissions
.ire paid to scalper? or others for the sale of
ticket! to Chicago. It was true that h» agreed
with the other Yanderbiltroads to pay commis
sions to steamship. agents. Of coarse, if other
roads reduce the rates,. the Lake Shore would be
compelled to do likewise.

opinion that the agreement required hi* road to
report only Fremont and Norfolk business. He
expected that a meeting of the association would
be held in a few day*, when the complications
would be discussed and matters would then take
more definite shape. He said hi- trip to the
east had nothing to do with those complications.
Evervth' I depended on the attitude which the
Colon Pacific should assume towards the various
tripartite roads. He also said that it was the te- I

NEW STATE PAMPHLET.
Minnesota at the New Orleans Ex
position. ■ '. .
In the course of his yesterday's peregrina
tions the Globe reporter eucountered
the secretary of the state board
of immigration, and on applying his inquisitorial
forceps drew from him the following information
as to what he is doing in the way of preparing
for an exhibit at the New Orleans International
exposition. lie explained that when the matter
was first proposed to him he had not hoped to do
more than/publish a new edition of the maps
and pamphlets now in use by the board, as the
appropriation wag too nearly expended to permit
him to get up a special and suitable work. But
on learning that other new states generally
were intending to be there with enlarged and
illuminated pamphlets, he concluded that
it would be better for Minnesota not to be repre
sented at a!!, than to be far behind other locali
ties. Hence, he at once began preparing the
matter for a new book of at least 100 page?, ta
be gotten up in the very best style and to contain
a handsomely colored map of the state. i
This will be divided into four departments;
the first containing a general description and
brief historic sketch of the state, The/ second
will describe more minutely the six sections into
which the state is divided by its drainage lystcms,
and will contain full statistical Information of
every county in each division, giving their agri
cultural products, averages per acre, numbers
and kinds of farm animals in each,' popula
tion, wealth and development. Their
undeveloped resources will also be "given, to
gether with the quantity of unoccupied lands in
each and the prices per acre of unimproved
It is likewise proposed In this department to
give full descriptions of the principal cities and
villages, with accounts of their manufactories,
trade, the character and extent of country tribu
tary to them, and their social, religious and edu
cational condition and facilities.
The third division will be devoted to describing
the railroads of the state, their extent and
branches, and their connections with other lines
both within and without the boundaries of
Minnesota. This will include a brief synopsis of
their business and a description of their facilities
for carrying freight and passengers, and other
Information of general interest. .■ - : '■■
The fourth and closing department will de
scribe the lakes and pleasure resorts, and con
tain such other information as will be of use to
tourist and sportsmen. In short, it is intended
that the book shall be a complete- exposition of
the state, from which the reader, whether he be
a prospective immigrant, a capitalist seeking for
profitable investment, a laborer hunting employ
ment, or a tourist and pleasure-seeker, can de
rive the information he desires. It will be con
densed, but not to an extent to mar its useful
ness and will be illustrated and handsomely
bound in illuminated paper covers.
Besides the pamphlet, the secretary is pre
paring a large sectional map of the state,
10x12 feet, which will show all the rivers,
lake?, cities, villages, raiiroad lines, forests,
mines, quarries, etc, Likewise three charts,
7 4x9 feet, will be made. The latter will give
the county boundaries, and show '■ respectively
the agricultural productions, numbers and kinds
of farm animals, and population, wealth, and va
cant lands in each county in large and conspicu
ous letters and figures. %-,-.' --;"V»t' ■-,
In order to meet the expense of this work, be
yond the amount of the appropriation the board
has now on hand, the secretary is soliciting sub
scriptions from the cities and villages, interested,
at the same time that he is collecting data for
descriptions of them. Whatever money is de
rived from this resource will be nnder the control
of the board of immigration, and ex
pended only as that board . shall
direct, and if more than enough for the purpose
is collected it will be returned to the donors in
proportion to their several subscriptions. The
matter of the pamphlet will also be submitted to
the board, and nothing will be allowed to appear
therein that does not meet the approval of the
honorable gentlemen composing it. ...... i
It is to be hoped that Secretary Young may be
successful in raising the sum of money needed,
and enabled to go into the field at Xew Orleans
with a book that will be a credit to the state.
Since he has occupied his present position the
appropriations for the use of the office have *!
ways been too small to afford him opportunity
fordoing the best he misht,yetby industry, econ
omy and the exercise of good judgment he has
won for Minnesota a fair proportion of the im
migration, notwithstanding that his competitors
in other states have had from three to five times
the amount of money at their disposal, and been
thereby enabled to make combinations with
steamship and other immigration agents. For a
lone time he has been collecting geographic,
statistical and other information about the sev
! eral counties of the state, intending to use it in
i a work which he proposed to • publish
I hereafter. All of this he will now
i make available for the proposed new
i pamphlet, and we are confident that no other
state will send to Xew Orleans a better and more
readable book, if he meets the encouragement
i and support he so richly deserves.. As the time
; i.« short for the amount of work to be done, he
I has associated with him Mr. J. H. Hanson, who
i will assist him in soliciting subscriptions, col
! lecting data, and preparing the matter for publi
cation. Mr. Hanson is a fluent writer and has
large experience in this line of business and will,
no doubt, prove an invaluable aid. : •

At the municipal court yesterday there was

Yesterday we passed the Schulenberg&Boeck
ler Lumber Co's mill, and its silence contrasted .
much with the life and activity that was wont to

in this district. The high price of Jogs in com
parison to the price of inmber, the dullness of
the market^, the large stock on hand in St. Louis
and the lowness of the water here.all contributed
to the mill'" "hatting down bo early. They are
cow overhauling it. and when another season
opens, the mill will be in the very beat condition.

Yesterday some excellent fire escape ladders
were erected at the Central school, which may
be reached from each of the floors, as well 03
from the roof. A large pipe is on one side to
which a hose mar be attached in case of fire,
from which water may be thrown all over the
roof. This is one of the best adjuncts that could
be had at the schools, and no doubt all will be
served alike. Fire drill also should be contin
ued, so thai in case of neceSsity the schoolrooms
could be vacated by the children in an incredibly
short space of time. An ounce of prevention is
I worth a pound of cure.
: The sre department are ont evenings practic
ing. The hook and ladder made a good exhibit
on Tuesday evening, and last evening the htire
department went through their exercises. This
is most commendable, and from the material of
which the fire department is now composed we
expect to see good work. If they practice they
will become perfect. One of the ' teams can
reach the the pole and get outside in good time,
but the other team is not so lively, one
of the hor-e- having been in the service some
eight years', and is too old for farther n*e as a
fire horse, but may do all right before a plow.
Wn Around Tl,* City.
Yesterday morning we had the pleasure of co
ins through the «aw mill of
1. S. xxonxaoy * CO.,
near the east end of the bridge. ; Here we found
a 'complete »aw mill, although of not very large
, dimension*, bat o-s that iv« . ; sot had :o that
down for repairs or other causes since it . started
last April. shown that there is great care in
running it, which is due in a great manner^ to the
oversight of Mr. E. Egaard.who has been for the
past twelve years connected with the ■ mill, for
ten years as engineer and the last two years as
manager. We understand that Mr. Egaard leaves
in about a week for a very pleasant trip and on a
pleasant errand, but It might make him blush.to
to speak plainer. In the mill we find gang and
circular saws, with butters and shingle and lathe
machines. There is also a planer at present, '^
but the plaining mill is to be moved to the build
ing now used for storing lumber, out in the lake,
and which will be an excellent : location for • it.
Mr. Anderson is to largely increase them, and
the machinery will be driven by an endless chain,
from shafting near the present | engine house.
The dressed lumber will be kept under covep, and
large sheds will be erected for that purpose. No
shingles have been sawed since .Inly, but the
stock is running low, and the shingle mill will
be again started, the demand being good. . . The
whole works are driven by a powerful engine,
steam being supplied from four boilers. The fur
naces are of the most improved kind, and saw
dust and edgings are ufeed for firing. The mill is
complete each department, and everything
goes on like clock work. The raft ship is an ex
cellent arrangement, being on a pivot, and when
the desired quantity is loaded, it tips up,allowing
the securely fastened lumber to slide into the
lake. The mill supplies much of the lumber
used around the city, the mill teams being busily
engaged hauling lumber.' etc., all the time. Mr.
Anderson may always be found looking after the
business. The average cut is 75,000 feet per day.

May be found at 204 South Main street, where
they keep a full supply of cigars, tobacco and
pipes, they also doing a wholesale and retail bus

The Leaders of the Blame Campaign
They Can't Get the Money for Their Style ol
Washin-gtox, Aug. 26.— A. W. Clapp, of the
Republican finance committee, does not disguise
the fact that he keenly feels the sharp blows
which are being showered by the press upon the
heads of members of the com
mittee for their prosecution of
the poor department clerks. He said to-day:
"Some days ago Senator Gorman said that the
committee must halt in its request for money to
carry on the Republican campaign. There are
clerks in the department* who hail this cry of
halt with joy. They are Democrats who have
not now, nor never had any sympathy with Re
publican principles, but who through some
trick or legerdemain have succeeded in securing
positions under a Republican administration. They
wrote the committee in response to circulars
sent them to solicit contributions to aid the con
tinuance of power in the hands of a party which
is tolerating and feeding them, anonymous let
ters, which are j always cowardly, in the effect
that they propose to contribute to advance the
interests of Cleveland. They fancy that they
will escape discovery, but in that they are liable
to discover their mistake when it is too late for
their comfort and safety."
Clapp's committee is not making any headway
in their demand with this threat. Not over fifty
contributions have been received, and when it is
taken into consideration that there are no less
than 10,000 department employes in Washington,
the influence and power of the committece can be
easily estimated . The Democrats are satisfied
that the Republicans will not be able to secure
substantial aid to any considerable amount from
government employe-, ami are quietly congratu
lating themselves upon having cat oil a large
portion of the enemy's supplies.
The Republican National convention i- grow
ing anxious, and there are rumors afloat that a
new finance convention will be appointed in
hopes that fresh means may be provided to scare
the clerks into contributing. From all accounts
there are several things at the bottom of the
troubles of the Republican National committee.
At the present time it is virtually without funds.
Considerable money has been collected already,
' the bulk of it coming from prominent member*
of the convention, and men who at
the outlet of the campaign advertised
themselves as promising to give "so much"' to
the campaign fund. Most *af this money was
sent to Maine, the little kept here being reserved
for clerk hire and incidental expenses of the
committee. . The amount of money already sent
to Maine is said to be very large, and no estimate
places it at less than $100,000, and by many this
amount is said to have been largely exceeded,
and yet, with all this money 'sunk
simply to give lllaine a boom in lii
own state, reports from there are any
thing but encouraging, and the cry stiil corned
for more "soap." lint just now the committee
has no "soap" to send. Desperate efforts to
raise funds from the usual quarters have been
lately made, but without eliciting the usual re
sponse. The merchants, bankers, and Wall
Street brokers who gave so liberally for (Jarllelil
have, most of them fallen into line behind the
Those who are Blalno' men give some
thing,' but not with their old
time liberality, , and excuse themselves
on the ground of losses by depreciation of
stocks. It is the failure that for the. lime being
puts the illume managers on the verge of dee
pair, and the committee which they outrage, on
the brink of bankruptcy. Already complaints
have poured in to headquarters from all sections
of the country, and prominent Blame men in
states like Ohio, Indiana, lowa and Illinois
have repeatedly warned the commute that unless
: something wan done at once it would bo useless
to hope that their states would be carried foi
Blame in November. Steve Biking, however,
says that there will be plenty of money by the
Ist of October, and that localities needing help
will be liberally provided for then.
