The Expenses Most be Reduced.—-The School Has Been an Elephant on the Hands of Uncle Ham. Superintendent Baker of Fort Hall Indian School, has been notifled by letter from the Commissioner of In dian Affairs at Washington, that the school will be placed under the im mediate supervision of the agent of the reservation. The supposition is that this move is made in the interest of economy and reduction of expenses. Superin tendent Baker will turn over the prop erty to Acting Agent VanOrsdale as soon as it can be done. The school under former superin tendents, particularly Williams and Gregory, became an elephant on the hands of the government, costing at one time, about $340 per year for each pupil in attendance. Supt Baker bas been reducing expenses but has never been able to bring it within the allowance made by the depart ment, viz : $1G7, annually, for each pupil. Former superintendents made ex travagant requisitions for supplies etc. until the accumulations have be come burdensome, and there is now on hand a surplus of many things that cannot be judiciously used up in a tlozen years. The school should have been made largely self supporting. It has a mag nificent farm attached, no better per haps in the state, and its products ought to have been almost or quite enough to supply the tables of the school. Like the school of experience, Fort Hal! has always been a dear one for the amount of good done It mat ters not how faithful the employes may have been and how economically they may have managed—they may have labored from the rising of the sun to the going down thereof, nud they may have brought the expenses under the minimum limit, but their labors baye been bestowed upon an unappreciative class of pupils who as a class bave preferre«! the wild, unre strained Indian life, to the education, culture and refinement of civilization. The few who hare been benefitted for after life are like unto angels' visits few and far between, and for no fault of their instructors, but because of their natural love for the ways of their fathers and forefathers. Postmaster General Bissei. Postmaster General Bissei is not the "slow coach" that the overly anx ious have represented him to be. In mnking appointments of presidential postmaster he is 22 altead of Wana maker for the first year and Wana maker beat the record up to his time. From March 4th, 1889, to March 12th, 1890, Wanumakcr made 1,698 appointments; from March 4th, 1893, to March 12th, 1894, Bissei made 1,720. This rs more than half of all the presidential offices. Now for Mr. Maxwell: The records show that he Is beating all records up to his time. Adlai Stevenson was counted a good ono but Maxwell is 700 to 800 ahead of him for the first year, 500 ahead of Mr. Clarkson, Har rison's great ax-man. Stop your growl ing. Captain Gunn at Blackfoot.

The People' Press (Populist) of San Francisco, speaking of men promi nently connected with the recent Tran Mississippi congress, says : "From the abundance of distin guished gentlemen in attendance it is not easy to select the most prominent in good work, and of ability all seem ed possessed. "On the whole among the govern ors, ex-governors, ex-senators, mem bers of congress, and others who have made for themselves great names, we think that the outgoing president of the congress, Hon. W J. McConnell, governor of Idaho stands pre-eminent as the master spirit of this assemblage. "His fine personal appearance, clear enunciation and distinctness of utter ance is supplemented by such quick perception of right and unswerving determination to pursue it as to make him a natural leader of brainy, big headed western men." as of of TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION Of Eastern Idaho, at Idaho Falls, on April 5th and 6th.
