In these words the Democratic standard bearer, with characteristic incisiveness, has
gtruck the keynote of the movement which is supporting him and which is going to elect him.
For a quarter of a century the money of the Interests has been paying the political
bills of the nation. And the Interests have been receiving in return the legislative favors
of those elected to office by its money.
As tar as Wilson and Marshall, their ticket and the Democratic National Committee
are concerned, these things are at an end.

I the home schools wtt!i the smallest
number of emergency certificates ever
During the year ending June 30, 1911,
602 emergency certificates were Issued
to white teachers and 2S7 to colored
teachers. The reports for the session
just closed are not in yet, but the
number is hardly as large aa the year
before, since the number of emergency
certificates has been gradually de?
creasing for several years. This year
it will be necessary to issue to white
teachers probably only one-half as
many emergency certificates as year
before last.
Colored Teaehera.
Xext year the department proposes
to take up the matter of providing an
adequate supply of colored teachers In
a very systematic way. and it is be?
lieved that a plan has already been
j suggested-that will relieve the sltua
' tion materially.
i During the summer the department
handled between 50.000 and 60,000 ex?
amination papers. This shows that
about 5,000 persons take the examina?
tion each year, counting as twj per?
sons those who try both of the exam?
inations. The heaviest part of this
work comes in August, but by length?
ening the hours and using extra help
the papers were handled and the great |
bulk of the reports sent out in twenty-]
five days. 1
The department will now put thai
information s-ecured fr >m the ques-j
tionnaire to good use> by sending the.
names of available teachers to the;
counties needing teachers, and wherever i
a fairly decent salary is offered it is;
hoped the need may be met promptly. |
