Our Schools and Their Management.
Now that the special election on a
tax for school purposes has passed we
may venture to present a few remarks
on our schools and their management
without endangering ourselves to tbe
charge of being opposed to education.
We may say without prejudice to
those to whom has been entrusted the
conducting of our public schools that
there is a general aud in the main
well grounded feeling of dissatisfac
tion at the management prevailing
among the people. 60 long as this
sentiment obtains our schools will not
flourish, aud the cause of education
must necessarily suffer. We do not
propose to charge the City Superin
tendent or tbe Board of Education
with willful neglect of duty or inten
tional mismanagement, but it is our
opinion, and it is an opinion shared
by many tax-payers, that there has
not been that system and dispatch
and economy of expenditure apparent
in the conduct of our schools which Is
so essential to the establishment of
confidence in the ability and judg
ment of those on whom the duty de
volves. We see it stated by the Ex
press that the defeat of the tax will
probably result in the closing of the
schools for several months during tbe
year. There is not a shadow of excuse
for all this. The city ought to have
sufficient funds to defray the expenses
of her schools for the school year. An
apportionment of $13,000 was paid
only a few weeks ago. It may be
necessary to close the High school, and
we are inclined to the opinion that the
cause of education will not materially
suffer from a temporary or permanent
suspension of this department of our
schools. It has been an appendage
far more ornamental than useful; more
expensive than profitable. This de
partment costs the people many thou
sand dollars per annum, and the child
ren of not one taxpayer in a hundred
aver reach the high school. For the
school year just closed we graduated
four young ladles. The accomplish
ment of these young ladies cost the
taxpayers ef Los Angeles a considera
ble Sum of money—the expense of the
year being about eight hundred dol
lars for each young lady. This sum
would maintain a common school at
which fifty children are taught many
months. If we were in a financial
condition to do so, we should be only
too happy to see a high school main
tained year in and year out; but until
we have more money let us expend
what we have in the schools that will
secure the greatest good to the greatest
number. We offer the following sug
gestions to the Board of Education.
Temporarily discontinue the higher
branches now being taught; fill the
High school building with lower grade
schools aud you will not require so
many new school houses; employ a
good and competent man to superin
tend the city schools at a salary of one
hundred or one hundred and twenty
five dollars per month; discharge your
ornamental teachers and secure a lit
tle more work In the school room and
a little less street exhibition; pay out
no money unless for value received.
Pursue this policy and no school need
Tilden and His Prospects.
The New York Herald in a late Is
sue reviews the prospects of the Dem
ocratic party, aud particularly the op
portunities both of Tilden receiving
the nomination and the chance of the
party winning with him at the head.
It is undeniable that both the State
and city of New York are, and always
will be, from tbe character of the pop
ulation, divided into factions: and this
rule applies to all parties. Yet there
is often an existing application be
tween the extremes to accomplish an
end that is in itself a political anoma
ly. Such an interchange of effort and
co-operation has existed for many a
year, particularly in the State of New
York, and hence the amount of cor
ruption that has of late been un
earthed in the great metropolis.
Whatever opposition may come
against Governor Tilden will arise
from the fact that he, as an honest
citizen, has always denounced these
combinations and every ring influ
ence in the management of State and
city affairs. The Herald upon this
point remarks that: "If it should be
said in other States, or said at St.
Louis, that the Democracy of New
York is not unanimous for Tilden, it
will be replied that this fact ought to
strengthen him with honest men, be
cause it proves that he has shown no
mercy to the thieves of his own par
ty." Such a compliment comes from
the leading journal of the country ;but
in addition to this we will assert, that
Governor Tilden has been the enemy
of all thieves and thieving schemes,
come from whatever party they may.
Because of the political, or iv other
words, the ring combinations that ex
ist throughout the length and breadth
of the State of New York, whose re
cord is traditional as well as a matter
of history, and confined to no party
especially who oppose an honest
executive, it is argued that
through their iuflnence Tilden
will be beaten. Now we know better.
The days of Barnakd as a Democratic
Supreme Judge, and Ruffe Andrews,
and connubiator,are ended. The sober
Democracy of New York have had
ample time for a review of these
cliques of rotten composition, and in
the election of Gov. Tilden took the
initiatory step toward clearing official
position from the taint of corruption.
Not only this, the material interests
of New York city have been subserved
by his conduct during his term of of
fice, and hence through the ramifica
tions of the interests of that city with
every portion of the country the con
duct of Gov. Tilden is criticised in
every part of the Nation; and yet at
this hour there is not a finger raised
to point to a blemish upon his per
sonal character or his political actions.
Few there are in either party that can
produce such a record after passing
through such an ordeal as has Mr.
Tilden. The people from one end of
the country to the other look anx
iously to the Democratic party in the
faith and hope that it will honor one
of its most faithful servants and insure
a benefaction to a much-grieved coun
It may be known to many that in
the State of New York there has been
a large body of Conservative Republi
cans, many of whom were originally
Douglas Democrats, who have long
been waiting for an opportunity to
withdraw from their association with
the radical element with which they
have for years been affiliated. The
Independent movement did not at all
suit their fancy, nor did they four
years ago feel reconciled to going bod
ily over to the Democracy. In allud
ing to this matter Harper's Weekly,
edited by George William Curtis,
one of the strictest of the Radical
school, thus compliments the coming
man of the Democracy. Curtis re
marks that "Gov. Tilden is one of
the most accomplished politicians in
the country," i 9 "tbe one conspicuous
Democrat in tbe country who is
known as a reformer, has at present
complete ascendency in his party in
this State.and his chance for the Pres
idential nomination of his own party
is to-day very much better than that
of any other Democrat; and there is
no other man in that party for whom
dissatisfied New York Republicans
could so easily vote." In the same
article the admission is made that
such an element exists, and most
gladly will tbe mass of the Democ
racy recognize the gracefulness of this
honest tribute from a political oppo
nent. Its effect upon this dissatisfied
element cannot fail of being benefi
cial, and will go far towards electing
Governor Tilden, should he receive
the nomination, which event appears
daily to become more probable.

was arrested by the United States au

order signed by Samuel Breck, Assis

that no charge was preferred against

that the prisoner was released ,"it be

"Puts" and "Calls" are a simple, easy and

objection to the ordinary modeof buying and

"Puts" and "Calls" dispense with all this
useless and time-consuming routine, by the
purchase of a simple and straightforward
contract to do a certain thing; to assume a
specified risk at a fair and equitable rate.
The holder of such a contract has nothing fur

A Few Extracts from Letters.

plication to the undersigned.
"I bought and paid 1600 for a Hunter mare,
broke and drove her—within four months—to
wagon on a half mile track ln 2:10. Is now in
foal by Hamiltonlan. I am offered $500 for th*
coltat weaning. The Hunterstock has proved
the best stock we have had here, as it took
only four months to make them trot In three
minutes, and if they had .. good dam could
not be beat."
"I bought a bay Hunter mare from Cutler
Salmon, Esq., five years old, broke and drove
her, within four months from purchase, a
quarter in 37% seconds, and sold her like a
fool roor 8800. She was the best piece of horse
flesh I ever saw for her age—very pretty, gen
tle as a lamb, but of high metal. Hit her and
she would come every time, and never broke.
No other person pulled a line over her while
I owned her "
"Solid Silver, owned by Thomas George, is a
small horse, out of a scrub mare; has trotted
in the tweskles, and has a public record of
2:40% at last fair time, and badly handled at

15% hands, perfect beauties, can trot in 8:00
and pace in 2:30, were raised here by Mr.
Morse, been bandied only one season."
"Judge Brown has a mare six years old by
the old horse. She was sold at auction for
}300. She is a natural trotter—it is useless to
offer $600 for her now."
