I Opening of the Schools. I Tli# s hool vrjir wlil begin Monday. Va < at ion davs have passed, with exceeding spc i d f">r nm^t children, and the season I for work and earnest effort for pnpils and I teachers lias come around again. MonI day \\>1] he an epoch-making day in near-; I 1} all families in the District a day of j I trial and solicitude for parents and joy I ?n trembling f?i the children. I It is believed that if the emotions nt I the children, stirred by the return ot I school days, could be weighed, joy would I hold down the scale. In this fact is a I suggestion of the advance made in teachI ing methods. School tasks have been I made more interesting to the pupil than I school tasks were in the olden time. I It is the charge of adverse critics ot I present educational wavs that school I tasks arc not now real tasks that 'learnI ing" has been made too easy and that I the i hiid does tint net the stern mental discipline which bettor tits him for the tasks of life. There is doubtless a happy medium between the system ot education which loses a percentage of its efficiency because b\ its narrowness, rigidity and severity it repels the pupil and the system at the other extreme which so coddles the pupil that lie gets no mental discipline at all. Another charge lodged against, some pnbli- school methods, and no doubt with equal justice against private schools, is that the variety of subjeets taught is too j great and that children are not grounded j in the elemental English subjects. It ] would seem, though, that responsibility J for thoroughness in the basie branches j rests on the teacher and the pupil rather than on any method or school system. Anyhow, the people of the District of t'olumbia have faith that tlieir public schools are efficient, despite the storm and stress through which they have passed. A school system to survive in good shape the shaking up. rattling around and general disturbance which the local school system lias borne ought to be considered pretty sound. In every household in the District there is a fitting of new clothes or a furbishing of the old. in preparation for the momentous first day of the school term. Let the boys and girls resolve to do the best they can in the matter of lessons and behavior, and let narents strengthen their children in this resolve. Reports published in The Star, regarding the physical condition of the school buildings, indicate an improvement over last term. Despite the increased enrollment the pupils will have more room than heretofore. Four new buildings ready for occupancy and additions to older structures relieve the congestion and the strain will be further eased when the structures building shall be complete. The fire risk in the older schools has been reduced by the judicious expenditure i f the money appropriated for that purpose. in substituting metal for wooden staircases, llreprooflng the furnaces and furnace rooms and installing fire escapes. It is unfortunate that the new buildings, though measurably safe-guarded from fire, are not fireproof. All buildings constructed for the accommodation of crowds should be fireproof, and this statement applies with especial emphasis to school buildings. Though the danger is small, much responsibility rests on the teachers in the enforcement of fire drill until the execution of this movement becomes automatic, and on the men in charge of the heating piants in the schools. n? i National Parks. A telegram reports that important California interests will press upon Concress a proposal to buy a large tract of land, in Tulare and Fresno counties containing big trees and set it apart as a national forest reserve. The idea pleases. (t is no doubt a beautiful- bit of terri* tory and deserves to be held in perpetuity for the people as a national park. It is certain that the Californians will press the proposal upon Congress without too great a display of bash fulness and timidity. Very well. National parks are desirable f ines. Washington is also interested in national parks. It believes tiiat some sl.ou'd be set aside in the District of Cormhia. The National capital does not s-eK to have thousands upon thousands of a- res so set aside. It does not hope iti such big figures. It wants the national government first to defend existing parks against seizure for public building sites, and. second, to exercise common sense a i get possession of available and eligib' pa'k lands before the city builds over m a'<<. nepire trie iifl<ancp in real es;?

Senator Dixon, chairman of the republican speaker?" bureau, thus disposes of I a current yarn: "This talk that Judge Taft did not care to meet Mr. Bryan was all twaddle. It did not look as if he eould appear both at (talesburg and Chicago, so I canceled the Chicago engagement because Judge Taft already had one engagement for a Chicago speech on October 7, opening the waterways convention ;n the forenoon When I found that wo could get him from Oalesburg bv special train 1 < hanged m\ mind al>out it." J olgo Taft and Mr. Bryan should enjof lie meeting IO the full. There :s nothing, -aturnine or offish about cither man. Both are healthy, ros\ and well conditioned The sparring they are indulging in as opposing presidential candidates is strictly according In lloyle. so t > say. There is nothing en it canceling personal I good feeling. Rather is each assured byit that the other has a high opinion of his ability. They realize, as the countrydoes, that two strong men are pitted against each other. At I.ouisville the other day John W. Kern was the guest of honor at the Kentucky state fair. Upon arriving In town he received a challenge by wire front John Temple Craves. then at Chattanooga. to a joint debate. To this Mr. Kern made the following reply; '"My engagement for tomorrow afternoon is for non-partisan address. Cannot be In I.ouisville at night. Have pleasant memory of long conversation with you in July. We agreed perfectly on everything but baptism, and that is no longer paramount issue. Come and visit me in Indianapolis. Promise you good time." This was in the best possible spirit, ami : rlrver to a degree. The men are wholly j unlike. Mr. Kern being a lawyer in praetiee and rather prosy as a speaker, while Mr. Graves is a writer and lecturer and of the florid school. He paints rainbows with tongue or pen while you wait. He would "hold over" Mr. Kern before a popular audienee as an entertainer. But if tihis telegram may be accepted as a sample of his quality. Mr. Kern would fare well ia a contest where readiness and good temper count. The victory in a deflate is not always to the word-spinner and skyscraper. As a rule, our political battles are fought upon a plane which leaves opposing leaders, where they have been good friends before, still good friends. This year, as between the two great parties, there is 110 warrant for offensive personalities. Both national tickets are composed of good men, who enjoy the respect of their neighbors and each other. Judge Taft knows how Mr. Bryan stands at I,incoln, and Mr. Bryan how Judge Taft stands at Cincinnati. Mr. Kern is popular in Indianapolis, as Mr. Sherman is in T'tica. All four are vigorous fighters, but all keep the rules of the ring rigidly. When the result at the poils is declared. if it is for Taft and Sherman, Judge Taft will receive congratulations from Air. Bryan, and Air. snerman worn Mr. Kern. and vice versa. On personal scores everything is going well; and when Judge Taft and Mr. Bryan clasp hands next month it will be worth going some distance to see. Government by Night Riders. The night-riding movement to control the prices of farm products is spreading. Beginning in Kentucky, with tobacco as the issue, it has now appeared in Arkansas and Mississippi, with cotton as the issue. May it not inwade the corn states and the wheat states, with those crops in view, and in time attempt to rule the cattle ranges? The problem is one of the gravest ever presented in this country. At the outset this fact was not appreciated. In Kentucky the tobacco trust had made it impossible for the tobacco growers to thrive. To free themselves from the oppression a large number of the growers organized for the purpose of holding their tobacco for paying prices. The movement was legitimate, and had the sympathy of the business men and the bankers of the towns and cities. I^ocal bankers financed the movement. So far all was well. But now appeared the night riders on the scene. They insisted that all the growers must join in the movement, and such growers as refused were marked for punishment. Some were taken from their beds and whipped. The barns of others, with all the contents, were burned. Plots where the infant tobacco plants were growing were scraped, and the plants destroyed. The perpetrators all wore masks, and operated only under the cover of darkness. Towns of good size even were invaded and the torch applied. Then the people of the state and the authorities awoke to the real situation. Here was anarchy. Whole counties were under terror of the torch and the bullet in the bands of desperate men. The organizations of growers repudiated the infamies, but tlie hideous work continued. And toda^ companies of slate militia, under the orders of the governor of the state, are on duty protecting life and property in exposed localities where once perfect trust and good feeling prevailed among the inhabitants. Do the cotton states like the picture? Will they allow the acreage of their crop, or the time for marketing, to be controlled by bands'of lawless men riding at night with masks on their faces? If not, they would do well to take the gentry in hand at once and with all the strength they can command. Experience in Ken tucky has shown that toleration is a dangerous thing. Prices of any product put up or kept up in that way and by such means are incalculably dear. Personal security vanishes. Society is all but disrupted. Neighbor suspects neighbor, l.and values fall. Where was peace is now guerrilla war. Bad men, without a thought of benefiting planters, find it easy to work vengeance on personal enemies and have their performances charged up to the planters' movement. It is anarchy, in a form more dangerous than the black hand brand, and calculated to oppress anil distress whole communities for a very long time. New Masonic Temple. The new Masonic Temple will be dedicated with impressive ceremony this evening. and a purpose which has interested Masonry in the District for many years will have been achieved. The new building, handsome in architecture and commanding in site, is a credit to the capital. That the Masons have been obliged to make sacrifices of time and money to the construction of such a home is strongly to their credit. It is the custom of Masons, however, to do bis things and do them right. The new temple is a big thing rightly done. Mr. llisgen is said to be a musician. Kut he will scarcely be permitted to display his talents in public unless lie ran prove his affiliation with the musical union. "Shall the people rule?" is a question that can be answered in the affirmative without hesitation, especial enthusiasm being manifested by any statesman thoroughly convinced that he is the people. Politicians have become-so much afraid of trust money that there will presently he nothing left for the big corporations to do with their profits except declare dividends. Kven the man who says "I told you so" was silenced by the seriousness of the aeroplane accident. Mr. Bryan is evidently the style of political debater who believes in asking questions instead of answering them. Jefferson Davis and Cabin John. In some of the newspaper articles concerning the death of the venerable citizen or Montgomery county, Md.. William H. Pylos, it was said that he was the only man who knew how the name of Jefferson Davis came to be erased from Cabin John bridge. It was believed that the "mystery'* of the erasure of the name of Mr. Davis was solved a good many years -go. At least a plausible and circumstantial account was written by William R. Button, who was an engineer employed on the aqueduct construction and who at one time was chief engineer of the work. Mr- j Button attributes the mutilation to Caleb U. Smith, who was Secretary of the In ; terior. and to the late Galusha Grow, a member of Congress from Pennsylvania. i Mr. Hutton tells that in June. 18t>2. he 1 accompanied the Secretary of the Interior tto whose department the aqueduct had been transferred>, and a party of congressmen on an inspection tour of the aqueduct. They went by way of tlie I canal. When the party arrived at Caoin John run several of tke members walked ! up to where the bridge was building. AeI fording to the narrative of Mr. Hutton, Secretary Smith remained on the boat, but Mr. Grow went to see the bridge. Grow returned in haste and asked the Secretary if he knew that Davis' name was on the bridge. "Turning to mo." writes Mr. Hut ton. "the Secretary then said: "The first order I give you is to cut Jeff Davis' name off the bridge.' " Soon after this episode, Mr. Hutton says, tie was appointed chief engineer of the aqueduct construction, but. not taking the order of the Secretary of the Inierior ! seriously, he did not cause the removal of Mr. Davis' name. About a week after i tin's, writes Mr. Hutton, the contractor, | Robert Mclntyro. returned to WashingI ton to resume his work on the building of the bridge. He called at the I?epartment of the Interior to pay his respects to Secretary Smith, and the Secretary directed him to remove the name of Davis from the arch. The contractor soon after reaching the bridge directed a mason to cut out the name, and it was done. There is no doubt that the public demands some kind of fitting tribute to the memory of Lieut. Selfridge. Some question may be raised, however, as to the expediency of conspicuously marking the spot on the parade ground where he fell There are many airship tests to be made and the work of the aviator is one which requires perfect nerve control, and if tlie parade ground is to be continuously emj ployed for this hazardous experimenta, tion, a reminder of the fate of Lieut. Self' ridge might prove a most unhappy sugi gestion to the brave men whose trials are j yet to come. "\,f - T 1 I *?ii . i.A?cu a ua mi auuii iiidL lutr x icmdent will not take the stump Is necessarily based on more or less limited information. Even Mr. Loeb cannot bf sure that the President will not lie tempted by stress of emotion to utterance the more vivid because it is unexpected. Some democrats love to refer to Mr Bryan as "the peerless leader." Others who hold to the doctrine of the victor's right to spoils regard liirn as the pie-less leader. It is not likely that E. H. Harriman 01 J. D. Rockefeller will ever get far enough ahead in American politics to even be appointed on a notification committee. n mum ? Europe's lack of confidence in American securities is never serious enough to materially lessen the demand for U. S. monej in exchange for titles. Richard Olncy's idea that a candidatf is merely the mouthpiece of a party calls attention to the length of time he has been dissociated from active politics. Tilings are never evenly distributed. Emperor William is positively pining for excitement, and Abdul Hamid Is getting about all there is. SHOOTING STARS. BY PHIbAXDF.R JOHNSON. Discreet Silence. "You ought to have more to say in your household." said the old-time friend. "No," answered Mr. Cumrox. "The less I say. the less chance mother and the girls have to criticise my grammar." "Dat Darwinian theory," said Uncle teben, "wouldn't worry me none if I could be good an" sure dat some of us weren't doublin' on de trail." The Misanthrope's Observation. Some people talk from day to day Until mine ears rebel. It seems the more they have to say The less they have to tell! Brevity's Value. "An author should always strive to use short words," said the man who admires literary simplicity. "Yes," answered the busy magazinist, "when you get a dollar apiece for 'em, the smaller they are the bigger % the profit." The Crowning Criticism. "Do you expect to make people believe all you say in your speeches?" "Of course not," answered Senator Sorghum. "An auditor never wants to be enlightened by any new facts. What he wants to hear is something he already be; lieved, so that he can say 'Them's my sentiments!" " Procrastination. For a long time we've expected Great improvements to arrive, But they've somehow been neglected, Though we re glad that we're alive. Have we stopped the operations Of the big financial set That has caused such apprehension? Not yet. i , Have we rounded tip the tariff In a way that suits us all?
