A scrap on the public streets
may be a wonderful display of
courage in the mind of those en
gaged in it, especially in the mind
of the aggressor, but to the looker-on
it is but a manifestation of
brute force, and lacks every ele
ment of good moral courage.
Such exhibitions ought to be
suppressed promptly and the
participants made to understand
their place in the community.

west of the Mississippi river. lt
legnl existence dates from Feb
ruary 11, 1H;5H, and its doors have
loen open ever since (except a
sliort time during tho civil war)
to nil who seek tt liberal educa
tion along university lines.
Tho faculty consists of ir
tonchers and officers. During
the last session 11):! students
were enrolled; 102 counties, -II
states and IS) foreign countries
were represented in this num
ber. There is no charge for tui
tion, and tho facilities for a poor
man to attain his ambition as to
education is not surpassed, pro
bably not equalled, at any other
like institution in America.
Here a man can equip himself
for agriculture and mechanical
arts, mining, law, medicine, en
gineering, or the practical duties
of teaching and the common bus
iness activities of life.
We suggest to our young read
ers who contemplate an advrnc

write to the University Publish

Ifce CflBsty Court's Action,
After mature deliberation and
and a thorough investigation of
the question of drainage, as ap
plied to the Marais des Cygnes
river bottoms, the County Court
voted unanimously in favor of the
proposition. This ought to set
tle the matter and all the people
unite in one solid hearty effort to
carry tlie proposition through to
a successful issue.
The County Court is com posed
of farmers and land owners. All
of them are men of sound, prac
tical common sense, good judg
ment, and are heavy tax payers.
We do not believe they would
place a tax upon their noighlsirs
unless they honestly believed
such tax would inure to the bone
tit of such neighbors. They have
satisfied themselves that this re
sult will follow their act and are
perfectly willing to let subse
quent events prove the correct
ness of the position they have
taken. That their judgment will
be amply vindicated, the writer
has not the slightest doubt.
The actum of the Court how
ever, may not be final. There is
opposition. This will now pit
bably take definite shape. A
lawyer or lawyers will be con
sulted. He or they will give them
learned advice as to what they
can do for a fee. The bigger
the fee the better the lawyer.
Some kind of a suit, (probably
an injunction) will be commenc
ed, and defered from term to
term while the lawyers study up
what to do next, and finally the
case will 1k tried and lout to the
opposition. Of course the court
or jury, and possibly lsth, made
eight or ten closely written
type writer foolscap page of
errors, and an apisuil will le
taken. In alsiut two years the
case will be again lost to the op
In the meantime three or four
years of overflows have destroy
ed as many years of pnmiierity
and nothing ha been done but
nelles exis'nse and delay ere
ated. Then ierhap, the ditch
will be dug and the people wake
up to the fact that they have been
feeding a lot of lawyers on the
fat of the land, while they wen
getting poorer every year and
len forced to let their land go
to pay -nt and lawyers fees.
We don't know that this course
will be pursued, we hope it wont

The Democrat expect to make
valuable capital out of the depart
mental scandals for use in the
Congressional election next, year,
according to a prominent Demo
cratic representative in Congress
who Is now in Washington.
This exponent of tho principles
of Democracy declare, tluit the
Republican party will be held ac
countable for the peculations and
wrong doing of Individuals who
have tarried in their operations
in the government service. In
his opinion the Democrat will
have a winning issue in the old
cry of "Turn the rascals out."
The administration however, is
proceeding actively to discover
the irregularities of tho govern
ment individual public servants
and to rid the service of those
whose dishonesty or incompe
tency make them unfit for their
position. The flash-light thnt
was raised over the intimations
of improper actions on the part
of the employes and officials of
the Geological Survey, has sub
sided into nothing. The persons
with the exception, who were
charged with using information
obtained at the expense of the
government for furthering the
interests of the Mining World, a
Chicago scientific journal and
for their own pecuniary profit,
have disclaimed receiving pay
ment of any of the articles pur
ported to have been written by
them. Several of the employes,
whose names appear on the
Journal as "special editors" have
also declared that such use of
their names was made without
their permission, and that they
performed no services whatever
for the journal and gave it no ad
vantage over any other 'magazine
or newspaper, in the use of in
formation collected at the govern
ment's expense. Should this
question Ik? considered of suftici
ent importance to require an In
vestigation by the Keep commis
sion, the employes of tin? survey
interested declare that no
grounds will be found for tho re
cent insinuations of irregulari
ties among the survey forces in
The effort made to manufac
ture a sensation in connection
with the Weather Hureau's main
tenance of an observatory at Mt.
Weather, Va., in the Hlue Kidge
Mountains, has likewise come to
naught. Prof. Willis I Moore,
chief of the bureau, specifically
denies the charge made against
the service over which he pre
sides. This observatory has
been authorized by Congress for
five years and the national law
making body has' boon fully ad
vised of the work performed
there. Secretary Wilson's vis
its to the stations have not been
pleasure jaunts, but official vis
its of inspection, and the observ
atory does not entertain "guests"
at the government's extM'tme, af
ter the manner of a summer re
sort, as was charged.

The employes of the (migration
bureau dealing, with the admis
sion and exclusion of Chinese
are having trouble with the en
forcement of the laws, according
to an official of the bureau, ow
ing to the fear of the employes,
that they may be considered over
enlous" in the discharge of their
duties. The trouble it attributed
in tome quarter to the recent or
der of the President admonishing
the inspectors with regard to apply
ing the law. The inspectors are
using extreme caution in approach
ing the Chinamen who make appli
cation for admission to the United
States and if the applicant main
tains a haughty demeanor and de
clares that he is a merchant or stu
dent or a member of any other of
J the exempt classes he is passed
with scarcely a perfunctory exami
n a tion. Commissioner General
Sargent, of the immigratioa bu
reau, is of the opinion that Con.
gress will be called upon for Legis
lation relative to this subject which
will operate with better success.
