THE FOREST REPUBLICAN.
J. E. WINK, (DlTO 4 PBOSSIITOS. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 2, 1901. (JUAT TICTORIOl'S. I At tbe Republican caucus at Harris burg yesterday, the stalwart wera In control anl orgaiiitcd the legislature by electing Mr. Marshall Speaker of the House, and Senator Snyder President of thn Senate. Of the doings of the joint convention last night the following special to the Oil City Derrick says: Colonel M. S. Quay was practically re elected United States Seuator to-niglit when Uie Republican caucus of 123 mem bers voted unanimously lor him. Two absentees sent word they would vote for biin, one man in caucus did not vote and there are at least two others who will Jump to him at the first opportunity, al though they, did not go into caucus,which altogether wilt give him 1 votes. In mucus, tjuay on the ballot received 119 votes, John Pair ell two votes and John Stewart two votes, but the two latter names were withdrawn and all went for Quay. The opposition went all to pieces since the Quay people organised the Legisla ture to-dav, and it is uow conceded that Quay w ill be elected on the first ballot on January 15. Mr. Bryan's total electoral vote iu the Northern statea is significant 13. TBKjob of reorganizing Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Bryan on a common basis is not making much headway. A West Pointer cares nothing fur subsequent casualties if be can only oome out alive at the end of bis first year of tbe military academy. It is much to the credit of the battle- scarred freshman at West Point that none has asked the government for a pension at the end of the first year. In round number', the Republican plurality in tbe popular vote is 863.1 CO and it breaks the record of all national elections in that respect by UO.OUO votes. As the kidnaper is iu a peculiar sence general enemy in society, tbe hunt for one should be continued until he is run down aud given the limit of punishment. Tiik new century will begin with the Republican party in control of all de partments of the government and the greatest general prosperity the country has ever kuo n. Tkh nations are knocking for damages at the door of China, If this is the out oome of Confucianism Minister Wu should modify bis praises of it as a syS' torn for national guidance. Mr, Clevkl kd's opponents in the Detucratio party continue to Insist that tbey are right, but it is to be remarked that Qrover also thinks he. is right and has been President to boot. It will be noticed that the English pa pers objecting to tbe amended Nicarauga treaty do not get down to particulars, They seem to be unable to specify the clause or clsuses that are wrong. If the reorganization of the Democrat ic party depends on Mr. Cleveland's magazine articles and Mr. Ilryan'a ed itorials a considerable time must be allowed to clear away the brushwood. Ambassador Choatk takes especial pains to inform the American people that there, are no larger unsettled estates in England, and if they insist ou being swindled they will bave to go back to the old reliable gold bricks. Two weeks before the election tbe Re publican State Committee in New York published a forecast of the result by counties, which gave a plurality for JIc Kinley over Bryan of 143,900. The ac tual figures are 14:',80. which is close enough, with a margin on the right side. Cunorkss has Its work well along for this period of the season. Theexpirntion will come, by limitation, on March 4, but from present indications all the really urgent legislation will be enacted before that time. A creditable degree of speed has been shown by our lawmakers in the past few w eeks. The Senate has passed a bill appro printing J25fl,0n0 for a government build ing and exhibit at tbe South Carolina Interstate and West Indian Exposition, to be held at Charleston next year. It will be an important aud valuable exhi bition, mid the House should approve the bill without dclav. On retiring from office Gov. Pingee says: "I've got a big list if ingrates, hypocrites and boodlera who hsve pre tended to be my friends aud then be trayed me," remark indicating that Pingree had chosen bis associates un wisely and that he has thought of him self rather than of the State of Michigan In the Sixth Americau Congress, the first to assemble in Washington, John Randolph, a member of the House, re ferred to the army as "a handful of raga muffins, catiug up the people's substance under pretense of protecting them from a foreign loo." In the light of lator history Mr. Randolph made a Pettigrow of himself by that foolish language. There is one soulless corporation, says the Springfield (Mass.) Union, and that is the Pennsylvania Railroad. Down with the trusts. Down with monopolies, say we. What is the Pennsylvania Road go ing to do? Why, on January 1 it is going to place 400 of its employes on the retired list with pensions for life. There seems no way of hock ing these corporations and they keep right on grinding down the poor laborers. ' Tub London Times quotes loiters from Japanese merchants and others concern ing the conduct of the foreign troops in China. These all agree that the Ameri cans are by far the lst. They are al ways gentlomen. Next iu estimation come the Germans ; after them the Eng lish, who are described as "petty pilfer ers.,' The French, say the writers, are ravishers, while the Russians are called the worst of all, and described as wanton murderers. As employe in the Census Office at Washington says that many ludicrous misunderstandings occurred while the count waa in i rogress. Among the quer ies on Uie blanks furnished lo tbe enum erators was one which was indicated thus: "Length of rosideuce." This w as expect ed to show how long each person had lived in the place where he resided when the census was taken ; but when the reports came in it was lound that acme of the enumerators had misunderstood the na ture of tho question, and bad answ ered it iu flgures-"20x,,",76 feci", etc. Evi dently they had measured the length of the residences of tbe peopl e they counted- Attorney Gkm ral Ukiiios made a strong argument beforo the Supreme Court against the contention that the "oustitulicn keeps paco with the lla,i in getting into new territory, but he spoiled some of tbe effect of his address by say? big "lam hoie in a feeble and humble way" to support tho executive branch of the government in its position on this question. Tho "feeble and humble" should have been left out. Tho xeeulivo branch of the United States Government is neither feeble nor humble, the Attor ney General is part of it and its legal rep resentative, and its condition on the issue involved is in line with tho position takon by such eminent anthers as Mar shal, Webster, Benton, Jefferson and many other destinguished men. An official of tho United States Government in the performance of his duty is not called upon toabasa himself before any man or body ol men on earth. .Sr. Louis Democrat. Profiting; by American Prosperity. Even Europe's crown wearers are in terested in American prosperity. Many of them, it is known, bave made heavy investmsnts iu United States securities nl one sort and another. The Russian Czar, tbe German Kaiser, the Kings of Italy, Belgium and other European countries, aa well as Kruger, the ex bead of the extinct South African Repub lic, have large sums of money, in some cases well up into the millions. In rail rosd bonds or stocks and other kinds of American properties. These personages, aa well as 7ti,000,000 Americans, are very much interested in the prosperity which the Republican party has brought to the United States. Very soon after the opening of the new year about $173,000,000 will be disbursed in New York as interest or dividend'. Some of this money will go to its Euro pean owners, but the great bulk of it w ill go nta the pockets of Americans. Not all of it which goes to Europe, or which is owned by Europeans, will be takon out of the country for any considerable length of time. Most of it will be invest ed here again, on tbe knowledge that it will bring more money. The United States is by far the best country in the world In these dsys of Republican pros perity lor everybody, American or for eigner, to Invest money in. These are "flush" days in the indus tries and f ommerce of the United States. In most of the great activities new rec ords have been made this year. All the lsrgor Industries are busier than ever be fore. Apparently it will be hard for lsH)l to beat inoo's exhibit In tho industries and commerce, but the continuous in crease which has been under way shows no sign of interruption. The coming spring will probably beat last spring in tho amount of its business, and the other seasons are likely to score advances on the corresponding times this year. The wave of prosperity ia touching a higher mark than was ever reached before in the United States, but the opening year of tbe new century stands a chance to see sn advance on even the present records. St. Lou it Qlobe Dem. COUXTf TEACHERS' INSTITUTE. Forest county enters the twentioth ren tury with an educational force of ninety seven teachers in its public schools few er wium can tell anything of a teacher's institute of a quarter-century ago. Of the ninety-seven teachers, ninoty-two were present at the annual institute of the teachers of Forest county, which was held in the court bouse at this place last week. Tioncsta was glad to welcome so many of the county's host of loyal and trained educators a division of the vast army npen whose nobility and faithful ness largely depends the destiny of our nation. We ware especially happy to have with us as instructors Dr. W. W. Black of Illinois, Prof. Sherman Davis, of the Department of Pedagogy, at Blooinington, Ind., Prof. Louis D. Eich horn of Btufiton, Ind., who conducted the music, and Miss Elizabeth Lloyd or Dar by.Pa. Dr. Black needs no introduction to the people of Forest county, as no in structor is more widely known, or favor ably remembered than he. As bo an nounced at tbe beginning of his lecture on Monday afternoon, he and the other instructors had come to the teachers of Forest county to worg eut with them the problem of life, and he began with "Man as a Being of Education." Dr. Black be lieves the school is a problem of study as much as any branch and must be studied by the Uacher who continues the study while teaching. To make his idea clear he compared tho school with the govern ment of our country. He said that if a person were going to be President of the United Statea he would have to study the elements of government to see what a tivity in tho three departments of gov ernment relate to each other. A general knowledge of the functions is not suf ficient, but he must have an intimate knowledge of the basis of functions. In every teaching process there are three phases 1. The ohild. 2. The study or material. 3. The teacher. These ele ments may be had without having a school. The materials of a building are to be found on plain and mountain, but before we can have any structuro the materials must be related iu such a way as to accemplirh tho purpose for which they were created, And, in order to have a school, the three phases are to be prop erly rolatod related in such a way as the act of learning is going on to the grestost advantage. The school is a process and not a fixed thing. Every Individual re peats the history of its race. There was a time in the history of man when tho war-like element predominated and when might made right. Tho problem of tho borne, then of the school, is to take the child with its tendencies and not to suppress them, but to take wtih his tendencies and to lilt him out of the sel fish and animal into a higher condition that will benefit humanity. To hold China In tact and to civiiit its people is just such a problem as confronts the the civilized world. A man's value to the world in thought and action depends on what be contributes to tho world. A man who does not help the world pn ward has blocked the w heels of progress There are two kinds of paupers in this world. The plebeian who Is kept at the expense of others, and the young man or womai in the palace who Is kept by the father. Environment makes the man, but he can choose his environ iient. Each individual has for its purpose the good of its kiud. The more he bucemcs acquainted with this worl I tho. more power he has. Tho world is full of activ ity. Man has impulses common with this activity, and these make the hi!J a means ol education. The school has this problem to make tho transition in the child from instincts and impulses to a thinker. The problem of the schoolroom must be as definitely in the mind of tbe teacher as the woodwork of the piano is in the mind of tho workman. Ou Tuesday evening: Dr. Black gave his lecture ou "The Mean ing and Valuo ol School Education," which was full of help ill suggestions to tho teacher, and plainly showed that it depends on the getter whether it is worth while to toil for an education or not. Thursday alternoon ho gavo a lecture on "The Problem of Job". As nr. Black looks at it, the themo of the book of Job is Solf-reliauce. Job lived from w ithin aud was true to the best sense of rinht. Uo was selt-rcliaut because he relied on the justice of God and had not violated any of the great laws of life. Dr. Black's work was happily supple mented by that of Prof. Sherman Davis, a young man of ouergy and culture. Prof. Dayis, after graduating fro.n one of our best Universities, took a degree at the University of Marburg an Lahn in Germany, and his bright, scholarly lect ure on Monday evening on "School Lite among tho Germans," gave the audience a glimpse of student life in the Universi ties of Germany, With fin- descriptive powers he portrayed Gerinanyasacharm ing piece of Naturo's handiwork, and Us massive atone structures as relics of tho time w hen the nations of Europe w ere in their infancy. He also showed t ic his tory of this great nation to bo a strange mixture ol tragedy and comedy. Prot. Davis took as his themo for the week's work, "Lilo Relation iu Education." He began by telling how a scienti-l has devoted twenty-five years to the study of the eyes of blind fishes, because he discovered that at sometime there whs a connection between tho subterranean cavern and tho sea. How long, no one knows. Iu some way this connection was broken and now feelcis bavo covered by papilla so sensitve that these fish recognize a friend as well as an eueiny. Tho purpose ol this scien tific study is to learu how tho sightless eyes differ from tho normal eye. And so we in order to work out tho relation of life in education must in some way get some basis of understanding ourselves. Wo interest ourselves in w hat the world is interested in. When anarchy reigned in the animal world, people were interested in war. When Christianity came into the world and the law of hive touched the lives of men, they became interested in that. If religion touches our lives it is best to be religious. In an in teresting way, Prof. Davis showed how race impulses were displayed by the toad, squirrel, chick, and horse. A child has more impulses than any other ani malhas come into tho world with more instinct. Talking is a raco impuls ni d the child has an immense desire to ac quire a vocabulary. Until eight thi impulse is strong and it is unnatural lor a child not lo whisper. At this period, teach the language. "Strike while the iron is hot." In tho sanio way ho ex plained bow tho desire to distinguish color, to enjoy fine pictures and ! ear should be satisfied at the time of har mony. Tho boy is muscle hungry. Jle loves to git into daimer. for the sake of agility and he should have an opportunity to exercise this muscular co-ordination. Race impulses satisfied at tho right lime have given to us the standard of right and wrong. Nature studies should be taught in the school because our ances tors lived iu the woods. Tho boy loves the woods and should be taught how to preserve our forests. Ho is interested in conquest of animals and should culti vate them. The law of self-preservation should begin in primary grades. Boys snd girls are interested in books that got near to nature. They w ill be more interested in these than tho trashy novel. The problem of the boys and girls is to have them find their place in life. The t acher Is to guide rather than repress. If a stream is dauied up it w ill have its out let. Activities must not be stopped, but transmitted. Ifyouw.intto repress wrong, give the child something good and more interesting. Negution is nev er valuable. Jt suggesls the activity you would not have a child do. The negative should oe translated in'o the positive. By doing the most fur ourselves we do the most for the world. Prof. Eichhom who had chargo of the music is an excellent young man and an artist in his lino of work. He received musical education Ihrough private in struction iu the cities of Pittsburg, New York and Chicago. For six years he was supervisor of music in one of the western cities, but for the coming year has an en gagement as an evangelistic singer with aNewYoik evangelist. He expects to travel as far west as California and from there into Canada. Prof. Eichhom teaches that the race impulse in the child of a love of music should bo given its Ire dom early in life. Miss Lloyd is a gentle lady of culture who is eiirjloyed by the Friend's temper auce society to present the subject of physiology, hygiene and nracoties at the teacher's county institutes of the state. Miss Lloyd has devoted much time to the stu ly of this subject and captivated her audiences with Ihe interesting way in which she presented her work. Wednesdiy morning Supt. Labia, of Ytnango county was introduced and was most cordially received by the institute. Iu imagination lie carried the teachers hack to '01 wheu ho was employed as teacher of thoTionesta school ;iu 1 to lie re-election of President Lincoln. X, doubt there were none of the t'-ail e-s but who made a hasty coin aiisnn ol the davs of the sixties with those of the pres. nt century. Clarion Normal students of the past two years were deii-htcd Thursday morning to shako hands with their tench- ROBINSON. er of mathemstics-Piof. Wilkinson. This was Prof. Wilkinson's first visit to Tionsets, hut he made many friends while hero, lie was present and acted as toast master at the Clarion re-union which was held In A. O. U. W. hall, Thursday even ing after tho lecture. Ou Wednesday evening an entertainment was given by Edwin R. Weeks, a professional reader, accompanied by two young ladies of the Oeeilian Quintette. Thursday evening Rev. Nacy Magee Waieia. D. D., gave his lecture on Daniel Webster. Dr. Waters is a young man of the southland. He Is an easy and lluent speaker and tho near futuro may find him among the loreiuost orators. At the close of tho institute Friday morning, Supt, Stitinger an nounced that the next annual Institute will be held at Marienvillo. The com initteo on reading recommended tbe fol '.owing books: For professional reading, "The Four Gospels," to be read Irom the teacher's standpoint; Tompkiu's Man agement; Thinking and Learning to Think, by Schaeffer. Nou-profcsslonal, Don Quixote and Black Rock. Supt. Stitzingor announced to the teachers of the county that he would base tho ques tions in methods and theory on Tom p hin's Management, and asked a careful reading of tho book. Prof. C. E. White hill, o' Murieii ville, announced that the committee on permanent certificates will meet at Nenra-kn sometime in March. LIST OP TEAl-UKUS. C H.Miller, Rose McClosky. Mary McClosky, Martha N.
