than the one held at Webster

been quite as large as that of some

meeting did not prove to be a He
puoucan garnering, as some pa
pers seemed to imagine it would be,
but Republicans and Democrats, in
almost equal numbers, were there
and we hear ! o1 no partisan feeling
of any kinu to mar the general
pleasure of those present. The

now go ’way back and sit down and
not arise until they feel belter.

David 1 >hai*kr, „
expert, has made a
School Books.
As the time baa arrived for tbe
beginning of schools, says the Ron
oeverle Democrat, the question of
books is likely to become a very
important and aggravating one,
and is being more or less discussed
through tbe various papers of the
Slate. Tbe following from the
Morgautown Chronicle is a fair sum
ming up of tbe questiou:
v“Tbe system under which school
books in West Virginia are changed
and juggled is an outrage. It is in
the iuterest of publishers, and not
of the people. The public is hum
bugged aud robbed in order that
publishers may sell books. Bribery
is euoouraged and is practiced'.
Corruption is fostered. The idea
that each county must adopt its
own school books is uot only foolish
'#uu it in nuinc. it 10 urillllUcSI II
is enough to beat the blood ot any
honest man, to think of such a dia
bolical wroug being foisted upon
West Virginia.
The same books should be used
iu all schools of the state of the
same grade. They should be select
ed by competent educators, and
should be changed only when bet
ter books appear. As a matter of
fact, the stale should own the copy
rights, print the books, and sell
them to the children at actual cost.
But that matter could be considered
on its merit at some future time
rl he chief thing is to stop the
disastrous traffic in 55 kinds of
school books iu 55 counties. it is
wrong. It is foolish in principle
and corrupt in practice. The pub
lisher who pays the biggest bribes
is usually the one who has bis books
adopted. This is very plaiu lan
guage, but it is a case where plain
words are needed. The key uote
of the present system is bribery.
The last Legislature ought to have
killed the law beyond tbe power of
insurrection but it was not duue.
The next legislature should do it
There is no room in West Virginia
lor such a piece o! iniquity as that
school book law is. Let »t be killed
and let an honest law take its place.’

I he case has been under consider
