FORT HALL SCHOOL.
A Change Which Places It In the Hands
of Indian Agent at Boss Fork.
NO MORE BONDED SUPERINTENDENTS.
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

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."
