SAVE THE COUNTRY SCHOOL
It is one of the most extraordinary
commentaries possible upon the slow
advance of intelligence in matters re
lating to public education that, just as
those in charge of city schools are be
ginning to study how they may escape
from the evils of the graded system,
those in charge of the country schools
are putting forth efforts to throw it
under the same evil blight. The move
ment toward consolidation is the pre
vailing mental disease of our day. Peo
ple are not sane on the subject. Hav
ing seen what wonderful results can be
accomplished in certain directions and
■within certain limitations by the com
bination of labor, they seek to apply
the principle everywhere. It is as if,
because ten men can lift a stick of
timber which one cannot lift by him
self, we should therefore insist that
every locomotive engine should carry
one hundred engineers, since they could
necessarily run it a hundred times bet
ter than only one.
The movement for the consolidation
fof country schools has little better foun
dation than this. It has been put into
effect in the country districts of a good
many states to greater or less extent,
and a few superficial and thoughtless
people are charmed with it. They see
that by the union of a number of inde
pendent school districts one big school
house, with large and comfortable
rooms, has taken the place of three or
four of the small old-fashioned build
ings; that some hundreds of pupils
hare been gathered under one roof, put
through the grading process, are car
ried to and fro from their homes by
public conveyances and are able to as
sume all the airs and graces of the city
school. They think that this means
progress, and are highly delighted with
We wonder what the people so be
fooled make of the general conclusion
today that the country school has been
the mental and moral salvation of the
people; that to it we owe the possibil
ity of independent development which
filone brings out the strength and char
acter of the human unit; that from it
,we have gamed originality and free
dom of thought, and that to it and its
tinconventionality, rather than to any
other advantage of rural upbringing,
%ye owe the fact that so many of our
greatest and ablest men are country
born and bred. We -wonder what they
make of the fact that thinking men who
are members of boards of education
and school superintendents everywhere

Inferior as it too often is, weak in the
quality of its instruction because un
able or unwilling to pay for the best,
narrow in its accommodations, yet it
possesses the stimulating atmosphere
of intellectual liberty. The child there
can grow naturally, follows his bent,
develops according to his own inspira
tion and remains a human being, in
stead of a pitiful little cog in a big
machine. Those who propose this
change mean wefl, but they are
thoughtlessly planning the completion
of a "great crime against the child. Let
us improve the country school, as we
should, by giving it better quarters,
better teachers and better apparatus,

FOR THE DISTRICT BENCH
In the nomination and election of
judges, party attachments should not
be considered; though in the absence
of other methods of nomination the
party machinery is still used for that
purpose. But character, fitness and
experience should be the sufficient and
Judged by these, there can be none
better fitted for the position of district
judges than the two gentlemen who
have just filed for office under the
Democratic name. Their support will
not be, as it should not be, determined
or limited by party. While it is neces
sary, under the law, to nominate them
as Democrats, we hope and expect to
see them elected as citizens, as they
should be on their merits.
Judge Bunn stands as high in the es
timation of this community as any
man wjho ever sat upon the bench. Nor
is his reputation local; for the sound
ness, lucidity ai:d logical force of his
opinions, his clear understanding of the
law and his close application of it to
the host of cases that have come be
fore him have won for him a reputa
tion throughout the state. The bar and
the bench at large have the highest
opinion of his merits, and none can be
found to deny that a failure to retain
him in office would be a most serious
misfortune to the people of St. Paul.
Neither can we speak too enthusi
astically of the qualifications of Mr. T.
D. O'Brien for the judicial office. He
has had a long and varied professional
experience, familiarizing him with all
branches and all the details of the law.
He is a man of the highest personal
character and the most admirable per
sonal traits. He, too, has the judicial
temperament; the mode of thought
that weighs and balances, that sees
both sides of a question, that scans it
from all points of view, always with the
desire and determination that the truth
shall prevail and justice be done.
With Hon. George L. Bunn and Hon.
T. D. O'Brien on the district bench,
there would be that fair division be
tween the two parties without which
the judicial office cannot be divorced
from partisanship: the dignity and
standing of the bench would be pre
served and heightened; and that most
important department of government,
the judicial, would be in the custody of
men absolutely faithful to duty and
wholly competent for the trust. To
that same decision we believe that our
people will come, and we urge it uptm.

feeling begin to blaze with the fierce

The board of county commissioners
►is constantly opening before our view
new vistas of official worthlessness, and
humiliating us by the conviction that
they can be much worse than we had
believed possible. The latest revela

collect $5,000 a year from these places."
After a discussion by the board and.
advice by the county attorney that it
was the duty of the members to close
these illicit rum holes, that body was
so far wrought up as to pass a resolu
tion instructing the county auditor to
notify one saloonkeeper to take out a
license. No action was taken with" re
gard to the others.
No opportunity whatever seems to be
lost by this extraordinary body to in
sult public IntwiffgßßUl and tc waste

Experience has shown that advice
and epithets alike are wasted upon
men clearly insensible to public con
tempt and to feelings of personal
shame. The only implement that can
be applied to the county board room is
a vigorous broom. We have got to get

put in their places successors who -will
not only perform their duties, but will
follow upon the trail of these men, dis

bring about these extraordinary per

remedies that the law may allow.
The sultan of Morocco says that he
has conceded all the demands of the

SOLVING A PROBLEM
One of the problems which have
bothered penologists and sociologists a
great deal has had to do with the em
ployment of prison labor in some oc
cupation that would promote the
health of the prisoners by useful ac
tivity and at the same time avoid
conflict with the rights of free labor.
It would appear that the state board
of control is in a fair way to solve that
problem. This is to be done by the
simple plan of making freaks of the
inmates of the state prison, putting
them on exhibition and charging sight
seers for the privilege of gazing on
this notable aggregation of ladies and
gentlemen who have been caged to the
end that their fellows might live in
greater security and comfort.
We are informed that this plan is
already in operation at Stillwater, and
that the total paid admissions last
Tuesday numbered about 300, gross re
It will be at once apparent to the
showman and the penologist that the
board of control has happened on a good
thing that simply wants developing. If
the criminals prove an attraction to
300 people, with no expenditure for ad
vertising, the poorest kind of press
work and accommodations of the
slightest for the patrons of the show,
what might not be accomplished if
modern methods were applied to the
conduct of the enterprise? There is
not a showman in the country but
would take the prison on lease and
guarantee the board of control a fair
percentage above the cost of maintain
ing the prisoners. Or it might be con
ducted personally, as at present, with
Warden Wolfer as general manager. It
is true that the plan must interfere
to some extent with the good thing
that some people are enjoying in pris
on contracts, but we are willing to as
sume that the contractors would not
stand in the way of * the change. Not
nearly so much machinery would be
necessary in conducting the prison as
a museum, and the natural appeal to
the aspirations of the prisoners in per
mitting them to pose before the public
would insure their good behavior, so
that guards might eventually be dis
The advantages of publicity are
urged upon the board of control. The
state should be billed. The partisan
press might be depended on to run a
series of reading notices in exchange
for the usual courtesies at the gate.
Then the expense of billing the state
■with three-sheet posters would be com
paratively inconsiderable, especially as
the printing might be done in the
We shall not feel that the board of
control has done all that is possible in
developing this plan to make the pris

Contemporary Comment 1
Tammany* Accused of Treason
Charles p. Murphy jjays solemnly
that the Tammany delegates to St.
Louis will obey their instructions and
vote for Judge Parker, but not till they
have warned all the other delegate's
that he cannot carry New York. Thi.s
is a singular sort of obedience. Th
Tammany delegates were not oblige 1
to accept their elections. They might
huve refused to go if they had to go
under instructions they did not like.
Tammany may not be a better judge
now than on some other occasions of
the sort of candidate that can carry
the state. At any rate, it looks very
much like treason for its delegates to
go to the convention pledged not mere
ly to vote for, but to "support" the
nomination of Judge Parker, and yet
do all in their power to deter the other
delegates from making that nomina
Cleveland Won't Come Down
Grover Cleveland's candidacy for the
St. Louis nomination won't down.
Asked ihe other day whether he would
support the nominee of the St. Louis
convention, whoever he might be, Mr.
Bryan declared it too early to answer
the question. He has in mind evident
ly the probability of Cleveland's nomi
nation. The influences most promi
nently allied with Judge Parker are,
with the sole exception of David B.
Hill, friendly to the Sage of Princeton.
They would gladly, failing Judge Par
ker, accept Cleveland. Some of the
Wall street representatives now boost
ing Parker would, in fact, prefer the
former president to the philosopher of
Esopus. Hill-himself is for Judge
Parker, more to keep Cleveland out
than to have the New York jurist go |
Western Union's Mora! Responsibilities
It is not ito be argued, however, that
tfte Western Union has no moral re
sponsibilities in the premises. It can
not hold the respect of good people
when it deliberately enters into rela
tions with lawbreakers for the money
which it may make out of the transac
tion. It is as much bound by the or
dinary rules of honor and integrity as
any other business. Its plea that the
pool rooms must be convicted before it
can be asked to withhold its service
will not hold good, at least in such
notorious instances as those in New
York.—Kansas City Journal.
Practical Politicians Against Bryan
Nebraska Democrats, we may be
lieve, are going to support the St.
Louis ticket. If it is acceptable to Mr.
Bryan they will like it all the better.
But if it is not, if it so unacceptable to
him that he takes the field against it,
we shall see men who have trained un
der him, and cherished hopes of high
preferment from his success, reject his
further counsel and attach themselves
to the new leader. That is practical
politics, and politics is intensely prac
tical in presidential years.—Washing

T What the Editors Say
The first thing Uncle Sam will have
to do in Panama is to make it healthy,
or he will have to send a fresh com
mission there every year to fill vacan
cies. During the last year there were
1,270 deaths from all causes In the city
of Panama, a total which makes the
death rate for a population of 18,000
70.5 per thousand. About the same
condition existed in Manila when the
Americans took possession but they
soon brought about a change by en
forcing sanitary measures. The same
was also true of Havana and Santiago,
but the two cities are now compara

Fargo fire—when the city was swept
clean by fire from Front street through

gazing over the ruins of the city on

hardly have thought it possible that a
few years hence there would be raised
over those ruins one of the handsomest
and busiest cities in the Northwest. It
was at that time that the people of
Fargo showed of what sort of stuff
they were made: and out of the ashes
of the old wooden buildings has grown

which it is the center of trade. —Fargo

SAYS JAPS WILL WIN
BECAUSE IN THE RIGHT
M. Sugimato, a Japanese Merchant,
Declares Russia Is Inhuman
"I insist that Russia is inhuman,
brutal* and immoral, and the Japanese
will win because they are right," said
M. Sugimato, Japanese merchant of
Cincinnati, at the Merchants hotel last
night, as he waited for a train to take
him to Vancouver and thence by boat
to his beloved fatherland.
Sugimato is a wholesale dealer in
Japanese curios—which he naively says
for the most part are made in Japan—
at Cincinnati, and is going home for a
two months' visit, during which he will
combine business with pleasure. He
has been in the United States for a
matter of ten years, but speaks Eng
lish with a decided accent.
"Japan is fighting the battles of civ
ilization," he said last night. "She is
fighting for the open port in Manchuria
and the independence of China and
Korea. Her people are determined to
win and they will win because they are
in the right. It may take time to over
come Russia with her great population
and resources, but the Japanese are
confident that the struggle will end in

necessary to make the hall entirely

that such an expenditure at this time
would not be warranted, and by a
unanimous vote it was decided to re
fuse the request. Mrs. Clark proposed
to use the hall for Sunday afternoon
