Religious Herald Fears State
Might Dominate Independent
Richmond College Defers Action
on Proposition for Stand?
In an editorial headed "The State
Hoard and the Colleges.'' published in
this week's issue of the Religious
Herald, the Baptist journal of this
<ity u note of yarning is sounded re?
garding the relationship between the
Independent, nontax-supported col?
leges of Virginia, and the State Hoard
of Education, with its almost unlim?
ited power.
Tl>e subject under discussion is the
fcftort of tho State board to establish
educational standards tor colleges and
universities. When these tnaiKlards
ate adopted, und an insptcllon by some
representative of tho board proves
satisfactory, such colleges will bo
registered and their graduates given
license to teach in the public schools
without examination. Overtures of
this sort were made last February to
Richmond College, but at the meeting
of the trustees of that Institution held
a few days ago. the committee asked
that It be given further time, and that
it be enlarged. This was agreed to,
and the present membership of tho
i t n.mlttee is composed as follows;
Former Oovcrnor Andrew Jackson
Montague, Rev. Wllliem E. Hatcher.
I'. D.; Rev. W. 1- Ball, Lieutenant
Uovernor J. Taylor Ellyson, Rev. 1'".
\V. Boatwright. president of the col?
lege; Rev. \V. C James, D. D., and Rev.
It. It. Pitt, D. D.
NN nuts An 1 n der Kf muling.
The Religious Herald, discussing
the situation, speaks witn authority in
.saying that the delay Of the college
In taking action Is not Influenced by
any lack of cordial sympathy wltn the
greaj. work of public, education In Vir?
ginia. Anything In it.-s article which
savor* of adverse criticism of the
State board. It says, "is offered In the
hope that It may provoke the friends
Ol public education and the friends of
these nontax-supported colleges to a
little more thought concerning tho
important relations bctvvcen these two
educational forces, and perhaps may
Irlng forth some constructive policy
vhi.-h will promote a better mutual
understanding ar.d a larger mutual
But the paper feels that the pro
pcsltlon of the State body to stan?
dardize the Independent colleges and
to bring them under Inspection "Is
more significant than on Its surface it
appears to be." The relation between
the educational forces, it Is pointed
out. Is one of equality. Specifically, It
seems to voice Its fear* In saying;
"As there Is much mon likelihood in
the long run that the S-.ate authorities
In education might dominate the pri?
vate institution, those who believe in
the value of tho private Institution
are Justified In being extremely care
tu) on this point."
Tho unusual power lodged In the
State Board of Education Is referred
to. The eight members'(only six vote
li election-) choose all the school su?
perintendents, ?nd the Inner largely
Influence the selection of teachers "II
is a tremendous responsibility," com?
ment:! the Herald. "It may be that it
I? best to have the authority In our
public educational work cent! ed In ft
small group. Wo are not now discus?
sing that point Rut the fact that so
much power is given to thlt group na?
turally, and it seems to im rightly,
would tend to make the Independent,
colleges ti little cautious In dealing
with the bord."
Again. "It Is Interesting to note that
or. this board only State officials of
one sort or another are found." The
six older ind-pendent colleges for men
in Virginia have no representative on
the state bo,,rd. Not quarrelling With
this, the Herald thinks I hat the hoard
WOttld do well to seek the counsels and
cordial support of the colleges en?
gaged In like work.
It therefore urges a conference of
representatives of the colleges and of
the State board?"a frank, fraternal
conference, in which the whole ques?
tion of the relations of the board to
tho colleges and of the colleges to the
board should be studied and consider?
ed, with a view to the promotion of
the closest possible co-operation be?
tween them."

What Democrats Need Now Is
a Pooling of Their
Issues. '
,\\ atterson Says He Runs Risk of
Ending a Second
Baltimore, Md.. June 21.?National
Chairman Mack had no Statement to
make to-night on tin- temporary chair?
manship situation, hut gave out a tele?
gram he received from Colonel Henry
Wiitterson. The telegram rcud:
"No fair objection to the choice of
Judge t'arker for temporary chairman
can bo made by any thoughtful Demo?
crat. As you Rncw. i favored another
for that high honor, but what the
Democrats of the United states at this
time most need and require is the
pooling of Issues, not the raising of
disturbance. 1 especially hope that
Mr. Bryan will see the force of this.
Dike yourself. I am Iiis fri, nd. We
want at Baltimore not a repetition of
, the disgraceful scenes being enacted
.at Chicago. 1 fear thnt if Mr. Bryan,
I thrice the nominee of the party for
President, should begin by taking the
lloor to oppose .ludge Parker, once his
nominee, he will not only raise the
standard of factionalism, but will run
tho risk of ending n second Roosevelt,
and surely one Roosevelt were enough
for all times and both parties. At a
time when the very foundations 'it
our constitutional system at" men?
aced, and when upon the wisdom and
patriotism of Pemorra'-v the future ..r
(free government In America may de?
pend, (t will he criminal to split hairs
'over a doctrinal difference, If there he
iany, or to dogmatize upon the details
ot reform.
Such words as progressivist and re?
actionary should have no place in any
Democratic lexicon. They belong to
the Republicans. They are springs t"
catch Republican woodcock.
"The Democratic party at Baltimore
should present the country 11 square
and solid front, simple, sound, axioma?
tic, platform and a ticket SO obvious
thnt no Democrat can find a reason fo
bolting against it. With such a guar?
anty of integrity the party cannot fall

1 Washington, D. C, June 21.?There
i is the barset chance that Congress
will make the usual appropriation tor
I the support ot the army tor the next
i liscal year In tuna for the National
j Guard to enjoy Its encampment this
j summer.
The appropriation bill contained the
I usual sum for ioli* manoeuvres be
I tween the ngulai troops and ltic
members of the National Guaid. .\n
th'ipuliug its passage, the War De
, partim nt mad,- arrangements lor a
; number of encampments in different
'parts of the country. All went well
1 until tho President vetoed the bill on
; the. ground that it was Inadequate,
! clumsy -and m>l good legislation, the
real reason being assumed, however,
that ilie bill would throw General
i Leonard tVood out of utlice. At any
rate the measure was killed when the
President's veto was placed on h. and
, now tho various militia aulhorilu-*
j and members of tin. National Guard do
not know what to do. in a number
; of cases preparations had proceeded
I so far that the railroads were get
i ling their trains together to move
' the men. This has all be.-n stopped.
; and no on? knows what will bo done.
So far as the parliamentary status
! of the matter is concerned, It stands
I this way: The agreement reached 'iij
! the- House last week thai no Important
j legislation should be taken up Until
, alter the conventions are- over pre?
cludes anything being done along th.s
line now, even If a special resolution
should be offered bv Chairman Huy.
of the House e.'ommlttee on Military
Affaire. Jn the Senate nothing can
be taken up except routine business
until July 1 at the earliest, under spe?
cial agreement. Should both House
and Senate agree Immediately upon
the resolution of regular business in
Congresa to whip the. matter In shape,
there are some who will oppose the
passage of a special resolution and
who will Insist upon a regular bill.
Mr. Hay has no statement to make
now concerning the situation, for the
reason that he doesn't know what will
be. done and poss'bly will not know
for two weeks. In the. meantime it is
the opinion of those members of the
House interested in the matter that
the best that can be hoped for would
be. for the encampments to be- held In
August and September, provided then
all the congressional red tape la un?
wound and the matter hastened with
special promptness. P. H. McG.
