At the republican cau cus this afternoon, it is said, the question of considering legislative business, tne election investigation resolution, and Senator Stewart's resolution offered yesterday to increase silver coinage from two to four millions a month was not raised. The impression prevalent yester day still remains that nothing will be done in that direction by the Senate this session. The Line and Staff. THE NXW SECRETARY OF THE XAVT TO AVOID FAC TIONAL FIOHTB. One of Secretary Whitney's latest acts was to pay a glowing tribute of respect and admira tion to his successor at the bead of naval affairs. He said that among Gen. Tracey's many other excellent qualities was a broad, liberal turn of mind, that would enable him to avoid being drawn into trouble by the cross currents of personal and factional fighting in the service. This allusion, it is generally thought, pointed to the strife between the line and the staff of the Navy for advantage, which is understood to have given Mr. Whitney con siderable trouble. Of course the new chief is being watched by both sides with anxious eyes to discover any indications of his future policy on this question, and small inci dents are discussed with avidity by the officers with the hope of eliciting clues. One of these occurred yesterday, not many hours after Gen. Tracy had taken the oath of office. About a year ago Secretary Whitney made up his mind to move his desk' in order to get a little better light, and preparatory to this he had the wires severed that connected his desk with those of the heads of the various bureaus. These had formerly enabled him to commu nicate directly with "each one in person without the intervention of any other officer. It was his intention to have the wires reconnected, but for some reason it was not done, and of late the Secretary has had to reach his bureau chiefs through the medium of other persons. This has, to some extent, kindled anew some of the feeling, but one of Gen. Tracy's first acts has pleased everybody; it was an order that the wires between the' offices be recon nected at once, which has been done, and both line and staff are breathing easier in the con sciousness that communication with their chief will not be filtered through the medium of an officer on the other side. Bright wood Notes. Correspondence jf the Evinino Stab. Briohtwood, March 6,1889. The new public school building at Bright wood is now approaching completion. It will be a two-?tory four-room building with a seat ing capacity for about 180 pupils. The furniture will be of the most improved style. Each room will have two ventilating shafts, thus insuring a constant circulation of pure air. The front of the building will be especially attractive, having a central tower surmounted by a belfry, in which it is expected to have a bell* soon. It will, it is thought, be the best arranged, most perfectly ventilated and handsomest school building in the suburbs. Mr. A. L. Keene, principal of Soldiers' home schools, has purchased of Mr. Edward T. Bates, for r4.000. two acres of land with a nine-room building on it. Mrs. ycarff and her daughter. Miss Annie, former residents of this village, have taken a house on T street. Mr. Alfred G. Osborn, postmaster, who has been quite sick, is convalescent. Rev. C. L.

Before sending them away, however, the detectives of other cities are "notified, so that they can be on the lookout for them upon their arrival. They Got Awat with the Moset.?Two ' men entered 8.

They tried on several, but not seeing any that [ suited them, Mr. Slomberg went to the rear of , the store to get some different styles of coats, Hiid while so engaged the men left the store. After they departed Mr. Slomberg discovered that a bag containing about $50 had been | taken. Burglary at Riversdale.?The residence of Mr. Charles B. Calvert, near Ifiversdale, on the I Baltimore and Ohio railroad, was entered last night by burglars and robbed of some clothing, ?30 in money, and a railroad ticket. After burglarizing the house a visit was paid to the stable, from where a horse was taken. It is , thought that the burglar either came to this ' city or went to Baltimore, ami that he will prob ably offer the horse for sale. THE COURTS. Police Court?Judge Slitter.

UO SCHOOL* RECEIVES CARErUL ATTXXTlO*? THREE PAPERS OS THE SUBJECT ARE READ AND DISCUSSED?OTHER TOPICS TREATED. The second day's session of the Department of Superintendence was resumed this morning at the National Museum. President Campbell presided, and before proceeding in the regular order W. ?. Sheldon was authorised to wait npon Senator Blair, the chairman of the com mittee on education and labor, and invite him to address the department on Friday evening. Mr. Sheldon subsequently replied that he had seen Senator Blair, and that he had consented to address the department at that time. The first paper was on "The Psychology of Manual Training," by William T. Harris, of Concord. Mass. This paper was a scholarly discussion of the subject, und was followed with close at tention by the large audience. Prof. Harris is the leiding writer in this country on educa tional topics, and bis ideas on a subject which is receiving so much attention for educators at this time had more than usual significance. IX THE COURSE or HIS PAPER PROP. HARRIS RAID I "To make a box requires special application of knowledge of a special kind, measurement, adaptation, dividing with the saw, the use of the hammer and nails. It is special, snd there is something learned regarding the texture of woods and nails, some skill or knack required in the mending of tools, some pleasurable feel ing of self at the consciousness of what he can accomplish bv his labor. In this study of mathematics there is an immeasurably higher feeling of self in the perception of the power of the intellect, not merely to know passively. but to know actively; not merely to know the small portion of the universe presented to its immediate senses, but to know the conditions of existence of all matters near and remote, now. and in the past, and in all future time. What a glimpse of the dignity * and commanding eminence of mind arises through the study of geofnetry. The three angles of any triangle are equal to two right angles?the pupil need never meas ure one real triangle to know this. On the basis of the ratios of the sides of the right angled triangles to one another. Man pro ceeds to measure all things inaccessible to manual measurement?he measures the dis tance of the sun, of the fixed stars, compares the period of self-hood gained by the soul in the latter case with that of the former. , "In learning arithmetic the boy learns to quantify and measure all things numerically. It is not co-ordinate with the knowledge of carpentry, but it underlies it. at least there can be no use of the oarpenter's rule without some knowledge of arithmetic." PBOFt ALLEN'S PAPER. The theme of a suggestive paper by Prof. Jerome Allen, of the University of Sew York city, was "To what extent and how can manual training be introduced into ungraded schools?" Prof. Allen said that manual training is thought-expression by other means than ges ture or verbal language. Do pupils in our un graded schools need this training? This ques tion requires that the elements of a good edu cation should be understood. We have no means of receiving knowledge except by the senses, nor have we any means of indicating knowledge excepting by the same avenues. The training of the senses, then, is essential to the getting and giving of information, and this process ofgetting and giving rapidly and cor rectly constitutes the first element in good edu cation. In order to enlarge the mind all of the senses must be trained by doing things and by thinking. The true teacher aims to develop the whole child, and this cannot better be com menced than by means of hand, eye and ear work. The success of the kindergarten shows that its gifts, games and songs, and above all its heart culture, make it the best physical, mental and moral gvnasium ever devised for young children. We need the enlarging and uplifting power of the kindergarten engrafted upon our ungraded district schools. It is said that the ordinary country boy has better opportunities for getting manual training than the city boy; and he hag in many respects, but he does not improve them. An all-sided physical training is exactly what the country boy and girl needs to prepare them to take their places in the world with success. The object of education it to fit for future citizenship, and it must be admitted that the average country boy is not fitted for this important position as much as he would be if he had a more all-sided edu cation. The statement is made that we have no room for manual training exercises, as the various branches of study now pursued in our schools occupy all of the time. Mr. A. E. Frye aavs that fully "three-fourths of the time spent in school work is thrown away. Mr. Martin, state agent of the Massachusetts board of education, thinks that much time is wasted in doing useless work on grammar. There would be plenty of time in all our schools for sensible manual training exercj#es if useless work now permitted would be taken out of them. The beneficial effects of manual training are now subjects of record. Several New York principals have introduced these exercises into their schools with the most beneficial results. Especial reference is made to Principals Henry P. and Hugh O'NeiL But how can our district schools be furnished with a better class of teachers? Normal schools do not touch the ungraded district schools. The remedy is in the establishment of institutes in which meth ods and practice can be taught, and where some of the fundamental elements of the philosophy of education, psychology and methodology can be learned. We need something that will show the rural school teacher what real teaching is and lead her to understand that character in cludes the possession of the true spirit of iife, promptness, justice, virtue, honor and faithful ness. In uplifting the teacher we uplift the pupils. The work must commence here. The points made in this paper may be summarized as follows: 1. The correct definition of manual training. 2. What kind of manual training our district school pupils need. 3. Kindergarten methods are universally commended; these should be introduced. 5. All studies in our schools receive their greatest impulse from the manual training ex ercises connected with them. 6. The elements of a good education center around a knowledge of things. 7. Time may be gained for better methods, by leaving out from school programs the use less materials in them. 8. Manual training exercises have proved highlv successful. y. Our ungraded school teachers can be trained by bringing the right kind of normal school instruction within their reach. After the discussion which followed the read ing of this paper the department adjourned for lunch. At the Afternoon Session a paper was read oy Edwin P. Seaver, superin tendent of schools, Boston, on "To what ex tent and how can manual training be intro duced into graded public schools." He said that the discussion of this question has been heretofore largely theoretical, but now this is actual experience. During the last ten years have been organized schools and departments of schools in which manual training has beeu made the leading feature. Some of these schools are public schools, while others are supported by fees and endowments. Definite results of these experiments begin to appear, and the most interesting contributions to the discussion now are the records of such results and the means used in obtaining them. On one branch of the general question the argument from experience seems already con- j elusive, proving that systematic class inatruc- 1 tion in the mechanic arts can be given to boys of the high-school age with facility, with economy and with excellent results. This conclusion points to the general adoption of a new kind of school. He then went on at some length to show that a highly useful and desir able enlargement of the public-school system, especially in cities and large towns, would be made by organizing schools which may be descriptively named mechanic arts high schools. The new school, he said, is called a high school to mark its grade or place in the public school system, and its relations to other schools below and above it. Its pupils will usually come from the grammar schools, having fin ished their studies there at the age of about fourteen years. They will here pursue for three or four years A COURSE OP TBAIXIHO, partly in book work and partly in the mechanic arts and in drawing, on a level with other bbys of equal age who take the classical or the com mercial or the general course of stndy in other high schools. After graduation they will peas either into higher institutions, as the boy* from classical high schools usually do, or into active life with most of the gradates of other high schools. But the higher institutions of learning will be schools of science or technology rather than oollsges, and the active life willbe led more in the industrial than in the profee A paper on "to work car tu cm hiiiu iumi i" was read by T.

Wilson Suciffd? him la Charge of the Waahlngton Aqueduct Retention. CoL John M. Wilson has, in addition to his numerous other daties. been ordered to take charge of the Washington aqueduct extension, for which an appropriation of ?575.000 has Just been made. The work will consist of lay ing a 48-inch iron main from the western dis tributing reservoir eastward to the new reser voir. near the surfaoe of the ground. It was generally thought that CoL Wilson had about all that one man could well attend to. being a true engineering Pooh-Bah. He is now commissioner of public buildings and grounds of the District of Columbia, is which capacity be acts as master of cere monies at the White House, engineer in charge of the aqueduct extension, engineer in charge of the Washington monument, a mem ber of the light-house board, and engineer in charge of the monuments at the national cem etery at Gettysburg. Mnior Lydecker has now been relieved of the aqueduct duties, and is awaiting trial by court martial, which will take place March 25. The Successor to Judge Merrick. MIITINO or MEMBERS or THE DISTRICT BAB TO TAKE ACTIOS IX THE MATTER. Between thirty and forty republican mem bers of the bar of the Supreme Court of the District assembled yesterdsy at the office of Worthington & Heald for the purpose of con sidering what action should be taken by the bar in regard to the appointment of a successor to Mr. Justice Merrick. The meeting organ ized by electing H. H. Wells chairman and A. A. Biruey secretary. Those who were present were all in favor of the filling of the vacancy by the appointment of a District man; but after full discussion it was thought by the meeting that before taking any action ia the matter public notice should begivfnof another meeting, which every re publican member of the bar of the Supreme Court of the District in active practice should be invited and urged to attend. Accordingly, the meeting adjourned after adopting a resolu tion providing for the appointment of a com mittee of seven, which was authorized to give public notice that such a meeting will be held at the same place on Friday, March 9, at 3 o'clock.

Among the various articles on typographical errors that have appeared from time to time there are few which seem to have been written froni a practical printer's standpoint. The old saying, "Familiarity breeds contempt." no doubt applies strongly in this case, for to the proof-reader who detects, or to the compositor who corrects, scores of such errors daily, the matter soon becomes exceedingly trite aud commonplace. For this reason whatever there may be to say on the subject is usually left to others lens qualified by personal experience to do it justice; aud many of the so-called "tricks of the types" are so manifestly made up for the occasion as to appear utterly uncalled for and absurd to those familiar with the art of print ing. For example, the writer of a recent article on this topic (which, by the way. is taken al most entirely from one of the same title in Harper'* Magazine for 1866) repeats the time worn anecdote of the poet who wrote? "See the pale martyr iu a -beet of lire." only to find it appear in print as? "See the pale martyr with hla sliirt on fire." This is a specimen of many alleged errors of a similar nature which it is safe to say could have never accidentally occurred. Nine-tenths of all genuine misprints arise either from the mistaking of one word for another of similar appearance in badly prepared copy, or from the omission or substitution of letters. That any compositor could mistake "a sheet of fire" for "his shirt on fire-' is very improbable; for although by a strong effort of the imagination the word "sheet" might be made to read "shirt." there is absolutely no resemblance between the remaining misprinted words. It is true, however, that in large newspaper offices it is the custom to give out but a few lines of copy at a time to any compositor. In the absence of the context, "it is therefore < 11 impossible to get the full meaning of the m r in hand. If the copy chances to be in the least blind, the hurried type-setter is apt to make a wild guess at the writer's meaning, for, as most printers are paid by the piece, the time spent m deciphering a crabbed handwriting is so much dead loss to them, and makes an appreci able difference in the length of their "string" of duplicate proofs for measurement at the end of the week. The "machine printer" or "blacksmith" is is one of the chief obstacles with which writers have to contend. He it is who sets up what | ever the copy looks like to him, regardless as to whether it makes sense or sot. Such a one it was who set up "Gambetta" as "I am better." and made a he .d intended for "Bridge carried away by a drive of logs." read "Bridge carried away by a drove of hogs." Another of this ilk made an advertisement which read. "The Christian's Dream; no cross, no crown," appear as "The Christian's Dream; no cows, no cream." A reporter of a Chicago piper once men tioned an intelligent craftsman as "a thinking tailor." but the machine printer who got the take made him appear as a "thieving tailor." The proof-reader w as of course responsible for the error, but the vengeance of the irate tailor was visited upon the unfortunate reporter. Another Chicago writer described an exqui site as one "whose manners would adorn a drawing-room." but the unthinking composi tor made it read, "whose manners would alarm a drowning man." The Cincinnati Enquirer once created a gen uine sensation by stating in display type that a gang of American counterfeiters had been "shaving the queen," when "shoving the queer" was evidently what was intended. One of the worst instances of misprints caused by bad chirographv was where the heading "A Honeymoon Cut Short" was printed in full-face as "A Hungarian Cut-throat. News for Smoker*. From the New York Sou. A portly man of middle age complained loudly when be was cautioned by the cigar dealer to light his cigar well or he would spoil it "That's all nonsense," he said. "If yon let yonr cigar go out and then lay it aside for a | short time you will find that the flavor is vastlv improved when you relight it If you don't believe it just try it aud you will never make the mistake again of selling a man a poor cigar and then advising him to light it weU." The writer tried this scheme and discovered that the portly man was right He notioed that what is vulgarly called a "snipe" always smokes better and has a purer taste of tobacco than a | new cigar.

In thia connection hia attention has beea called to the fact that the gaa company havo removed all lamp* from the posts along Penn ?vlvania avenue, and other thoroughfare* now lighted by electric light. Thi* ia a very un fortunate atate of affair*, especially aa the electric light* frequently get out of order and the streets referred to are in total darkness.

The gaa company, like any other private enterpriae, could not be induced to furnish gas without compensation, hence they ordered the lamps to be taken from the posts. In the meantime, wheuever an accident happen* to the electric lights, the principal streets in the city will be in darkness. New York, Boston. Chicago.

Something Electricity ta Doing. Under ttk title "Home thing Electricity is Do ing." Charles Barnard write* in the March On tury. To Uie student of social science the electric motor ia full of suggestion* for the future. If power can be subdivided and conveyed to o distance, why may not our present factory sys tem of labor be ultimately completely changed? People are huddled together under one roof because belts and shaft* are ao pitiably abort. If power may traverse a wire, why not take the power to the people'* homes, or to smaller and more healthful shop* in pleaaanter places? To-day we iind sewing women crowded into a hot. stuff} room, close to the noise, smell, dust and terrible heat of some little steam engine at one end of the room.

We may take tho elevator in a wholesale clothing warehouse on Bleecker street and passed through the sales rooms to the top floor. The building ia lofty and of light construction, aud yet we find in the bright and pleasant attic above the house tops a hundred girla. each uaing power. They are seated at long tables, each one having a sewing machine, and secured to the under side of the table is a small electric motor, one to each machine. The operator haa only to touch a foot-pedal and the motor starta, giving about one-tenth of a horse pow<r. at very high speed. If the speed is too fast it con be regulated at will by the pressure of the foot on the treadle. There i* no heat, no dust or ill smelling oil, and only a slight humming sound, the sewing machine itself making more noise than the motor. The room is sweet, clean and light, and it ta in everr respect a healthful work-room. If we look out of the window we see two insulated wires passing under the saab down to the electric-light wires on the potaa below. There are people who cry out againat < the overhead wires, and would pull them all down, bome dav they will be buried under ground. Meanwhile, is it not an immenae gam for these working-girli to be placed in a quieti sunny room, far fram the maddening engine? In another shop on Broadway we may see a dif ferent arrangemement. A two-horse-power motor takes its current from an electric-light wire in the street and redistributes its power to shafting placed under the work-table*.
