it is, ami trust that it slrieuds will j
keep their lines unbroken and
adopt it us it camu from the com

has been an infinite umount
of irrelevant discussion introduced
into the consideration ol tho quo*,
tion. Partisan politics, personali
ties, criminations ami rccriruinu
tons, all tending to intlimc the
passions nml lo prevent judicial
impartiality. It might well be ask
ed, “What business have they here
at such an hour as this?’’
Now, sir, the considerations that
properly enter into the discussion
ol this question are these: Will the
distribution of the Committee on
Appropriations tend to salutary,
intelligent, ami economical legisla
tion? Will it seeuto to this House
its right to supremacy over legisla
tion w hich it is called upon to en
act? Why sir, to state tho propo
sittou is to answer them. A com
mittee upiHiintod by tho Speaker*
with reterenco to tho aptitudo and
fitness of its memtiers is presumed
to bo more competent to deal with
the business of the department to
which it pertains, than any other
committee. Tho physician which
makes a diagnosis of a disease is
more capuble of prescribing for it
than any amount of skill outside.
Take the Committee on Naval Af
fairs, for example. As I have said,
it is api>oiuto«l by the S]icakcr with
direct reference to tho aptitude of
Its members for that brunch of ser
vice And will you tell mo they
are less competent to deal w ith the
affairs of the Navy and to prencrilto

Address by Mrs. Peyton.
Worthy Master uud Members of tho
Statu Orange:
Through tlio kinduess of your Sec
retary 1 am permitted ro address this
communication to your honorable
1 desire briefly to tlutnk Hie Patron*
of Mississippi for their continued nd
vornry of educnli. and especially
for their co-operation in Hir work of
securing a State College for white girls
ill Mississippi.
It luid oreured to me In the year of
la'fi that Hie Slate should make pro
vision hey ond the common school* fur
the education of her while daughters.
In 1H7‘J] hoped to utilize that idcaund
at Hie Millie time build up and equip
my loved and honored Alma-Jtodcr
Wliitliworth College. With some as
sistance from my brother S. it. Cole
man Km|,, of Leflore county, I drew
I up a |H-titioii to the Legislature of
Mississippi, asking Hie Slate to adopt
Whitworth College as a State institu
tion, and foster it hv an nnminl ap
propriation such a* was given to the
Tugaloo l'niver*ity and Hie Normal
School at Holly Springs, whereeolor
ed girls are educated.
This petition was read publicly at
thi* anniversary of the Alumnae Asso
ciation of Whitworth College, in .lime
1879. and several gentlemen who
were called upon, made short ad
dresses endorsing the suggestion.
The |tel it ion was also read to our dis
tinguished statesman lion. L. Q. ('.
| Lamar win*heartily approved it* oh
I \\ Int will'tli ( ollege being a dcnomi
tioual school coiihl not he adopted hy
the State. I therefore prepared nil
address which was read to the Metho
dist Conference at Meridian in Dee,
11S7D, requesting that body to convey
the Whitworth College property to the
Stale in case the State would endow
the institution us n State College for
J white female*. Kvcn if the Confer
ence had been willing to make this do
nation of the property to the Slate,
their were legal harriers which ren
dered Htii'li an alienation impossible.
Itelievlng there was abundant room
in Mississippi for the employment of
Church, State, and individual enter
prise ami capital, In the matter of fe
male education, I prepared a hill for a
State College for white female*, which

The State (irunge at it* meeting in

in favor of a Stale College fur white

and 1 addressed a letter to your
worthy Master Captain Darden, ask
ing him if the (irange at a subsequent
meeting would *c-alflriii its utterance
in regard to a Slate Female College,
lie kimllv u«*ured me that the tirauge
would not relax it* efforts until a Statu
i institution for white girls was an as
sured fact.
l’atrons of Mississippi! I rejoice
with you to-day, that a State College
for our daughters lias been establish
I feel, more than! ran express, the
I deep obligation the |»cople of Missis
sippi owe to her intelligent and patri
otic farmer-, for two such valuable
i and magnificent institutions as the Ag
I rieiiltural College, and the Indu-trial
College. Now. that these institutions
are established, you will not caaso to
foster them, and will doubtless give
to them your unanimous support.
The trustees have placed at the head
of the Industrial College a man emi
nently qualified for the respon-ihle and
delicate duties incident to the inaugu
ration of till* great enterprise. The
niHnagemeiit of the school cun safely
Ih* entrusted to «o worthy and emi
nent a Christian gentleman and edu
cator ns Dr. It. W. Jones, And
now, if I might detain you n moment
longer, I would ask your attention to
another important educational pro
blem: Our common schools.
llow can we increase their efficiency?
Without discussing this question, it
would seem tlmt our greatest need at
tills time is more money. The lllair
Education Hill which will come Indore
the next Congress, proposes to dis
tribute #77.000,(sK>,(KH» among the
Ntntc* on the basis of illiteracy. On
this hn»U tlie share of Mi»sis»ippi
would bo #1,500,000. This amount
distributed among our common schools
for a time would double the length of
tlie public school term and give a
mighty impetus to all our educational
inanition*. I would therefore ask
your honorublo body to give that
measure your favorable consideration.
On the subject of National uid to Edu
cation: Dr. Mayo of Huston says:
“1 ask tlie natlou to help the south
ern people because no people, under
similar disadvantages, has done so
big a job of helping itself. I ask it
because it is constitutional and in the
direct lino of public policy from tho
foundation of tho Confederation that
preceded the Union. Ever)- Ameri
can State ha* received and used na
tional money, the north*western, and
■outh-western States, millions on
millions in land grants for education.
Every State has indorsed the policy of
national aid to education over and
over, by receiving and using such ap
propriations. The common school
fund of Kentucky wiu founded on the
surplus revenue distributed in 1836 by
tlie UeHoral Government ns was the
school fund, in part, of several of the
States. • • • Of course such aid
should bo given for a time to stimulate
and not to take tlie place of homo ef
fort, and should be distributed by
each State according to wiso . legisla
tion in Congress. I believe the peo
ple will demand national aid for edu
cation a* soon us they know what it
means. *'
In ronclusiou allow me to congratu
late tho Order of Patrons of Husban
dry upon a fact which is n source of

1 further urge upon local trustees,
to look after the be.-t interests of their
school*, ill the comfort of the pupils,
arrange to have wood convlent, so
that (hove shall he no lo-s of time mol
that tin* rooms may lie comfortable la
school hours. It jour school house is
without a black hoard, get one righi
away, mid put your teacher to u-lsig
it. The county enn not furnish these
things ami they are ju-t as essential as
hook*, and with n good teacher some
times more so. If you deny your
teacher all appliances for *uirc**ful
school work, you but throw hindran
ces in the way of progress for your
children. Teachers must report
promptly at the close of the school
month either iu person or through mail.
