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
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.
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

national parks. It believes tiiat some
sl.ou'd be set aside in the District of Cormhia.

Candidates and the Canvass.
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
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
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
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.

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

expediency of conspicuously marking the
