A great big scandal, involving, thro'
more than one of its members, the

of the Itata business. It is whisper

against the Chilian insurgents by
the receipt of large sums of money,
which has, according to the story,
been furnished by certain parties in

business rivalry is thought by many
to be at the bottom of all the trouble
in that unfortunate country. Certain
It is that Balmaceda and the insur
gents are both represented in Waslv
ington by shrewd agents and law

appearances indicate that both sides
are well supplied with money and that
at least one side has paid big money
for the right to us the news columns
of certain newspaper. The admin
istration officially recognizes only the
Balmaceda Government, but Senor
Montt, the representative heie of the
Chilian insurgents, or, as he says,
"the only constitutional government
of Chili," appears to be confident that
the Itata will be released by the
courts and that the insurgents will
soon be recognized by this Govern

The Public School Directors of
Warren County met in the City
School building last ' Wednesday to
receive the report of a committee ap
pointed at a previous meeting to se
lect a list of text books for the coun
ty. The meeting was largely attend
ed, about four-fifths of the Directors
of the County being present. The re
port of the committee was submitted
and discussed at length, and unani
mously adopted. Following is the
list of text books:
Reed's Word Lessons.
Barnes' I, II, HI and IV Readers.
Popular Science Reader.
Ray's Revised Arithmetic.
Barnes' U. S. History.
Reed & Kellogg's Grammars.
Phelan's History of Tennessee.
Safford's Geology of Tennessee.
Macey's Civil Government.
Bryant & Stratton's Common
Lupton's Elements of Agriculture.
The use of these books in the pup
lic schools of Warren County for the
scholastic year ending June 1892, is
advisory, but compulsory for the next
three successive years.
The Directors, in this meeting, also
passed a resolution unanimously, rec

FLOUR I FEED MILLS,

Syi.vestkk RkowER, Proprietor,
J. V. Johnson, . . '. Miller.
These mills are fitted up with the latest
improved Roller Process Machinery, aud
are prepared to do the very best class of
merchant and custom work. Mr. J. AV.
Johnson, the miller, has had long experi
ence. 1 have recently built a large addi

tor's offices of the Treasury depart
ment, because of 1he uselessness of
the work done In those offices, which
consists almost entirely of duplica
ting the work done in .the offices of
the Comptrollers of the Treasury.
Mr. Randall once drew up a bill to
abolish these and soqae other useless
bureaux of the Treasury department,
but he found it impossible to secure
support for it in Congress, because it
meant a large reduction in the num
ber of clerks employed, which meant
that much less patronage for the Con
pressmen. It would be an easy mat
ter, were Congress so disposed, to
save nearly $2,000,000 per year in this
one department, by taking up and
carrying out Mr. Randall's original
idea, which for some reason Mr. Fos
ter has seen fit to endorse.
There has been a hitch in making
public the schedule for the subsidized
lines of steamships, which was prom
ised for last week by Mr. Wanaraa-
ker. It is still in the hands of Mr.
Harrison, who took it for revision
before leaving Washington, and
those who ought to know say that
the trouble has been that, all the con
ferences between Mr. Harrison and
Mr. Wanamaker have been taken up
by the latter's trying to make plain
to the lormer just what his connec
tion had been with the wrecked Key
stone Bank of Philadelphia, and they
say that Mr. Harrison has subjected
JUr. wanamaker to a much more
rigid cross examination than the
committee in Philadelphia did. ' The
republicans claim in public that Mr.
Wanamaker's several explanations
have completely exonerated him ;
but among themselves they are not
quite so sure about it, nnd many of
them predict that it is goiug to give
the party lots of trouble, particularly
in Pennsylvania. It is certainly an
affair to be deeply regretted, not only
by Mr. Wanamaker's personal and
political friends, but by the public at

It Is very gratifying to the friends
of education to note this unity of ao
tion on the part of school directors of
the county. The adoption of a uni
form system of text books for the
county is certainly a move in the
right direction, and cannot but be
productive of good results. It is to
be hoped that the County Court will
act upon their recommendation for a
slight increase in the tax for school
Another work to which the Direc
tors should bend their energies, is the
weeding out of incompetent teachers,
and the constant raising of the stand
ard for teachers In our public schools.
There has been considerable improve
ment along this line for the last year
or two, and the good work should
continue. Better education of the
masses pays in dollars and cents, and
in dozens of other ways.
