he was found and arrested this
morning. He was identified by
the girl, in the jail, among half a
dozen prisoners. The account,
as related by the girl, was that
she was going up from the in
cline to the bathhouse, in which
her people live, following a path
through the woods, she passed
the negro going down the incline.
He 'then was looking at some
pictures which were taken from
his pocket after his arrest.
When the girl returned the
negro grabbed her. Three
times during the tussle she was
thrown down, her face and neck
were scratched and her mouth
was bruised where the negro
attempted to prevent her from
screaming. She finally managed
to escape from the negro's
Teachers Most Not Dance;
May Strike.
Jeannette, Pa., Oct. 17.-A re
markable state of affairs has
been brought about among the
women school teachers of this
city by an order recently pro
mulgated which forbade them to
dance on any night during the
school week.
Not satisfisd with depriving
the schoolmarms of recreation
on four nights of the week, the
board went further and so ar
ranged matters that the teachers
cannot obtain either a hall or 1
musie for their Friday night
dances, conducted by the Ster
ling Club, which is made up en
tirely of teachers.
Much indignation is expressed i
over the action of the school' 1
board, and threats to strike are I
being made by the teachers.

r quired by Act No. 824 of the

r. Tax Revision, Teachers, and
Other Too Quiet People.
I do not know about the rest
of the country, but I think I
Db know what at this time is the
ie South's greatest need is that
ne more of her thoughtful men, her
s. men of ability and judgment,
ro should make their influence felt,
is in public matters. Too many of
,y her ablest men are too quiet.
a We need mote politicians, not
t, of the wrong sort, but of the
at right sort.
1- The wrong sort of politician is
h one who puts the emphasis on I
h holding an office. The right I
d sort of politician is the one who
!. puts emphasis on the public I
e welfare. One who wants a posi
a tion may take thought also for
the public welfare, and one who 1
e takes thought for the public (
e welfare may also be willing to i
,s take office. It depends upon i
k where the emphasis is put. I
h What we need is more men who i
o are active politicians primarily I
2 for the common good, whose I
d first desire is that their comrn
s munity and State shall be good I
places to live in, for themselves I
and their children, and for their E
neighbors and their children, i
, One often hears it said, and c
it is said truly, that one reason t
- why we have not more of our f
s quiet thoughtful people taking (
• active part in moulding public o
isentiment, and in advocating and i'
upholding good laws, is that we
have practically but one party. li
The result of having but one ii
party is that politics is apt to b
become merely a question of per- I
sonality. The question is not v
whether this or that man shall a
hold a certain office. Now the p
very people about whom I have o
beef speaking are naturally im- c
patient of such politics. They a
regard the candidates as perhaps n
about equally worthy, or per- it
haps equally unworthy. They a
refuse to be drawn into personal p
partisanship, especially when p
they see no vital principal in- ri
volved in the contest.
Too rarely in our Southern
States during recent years have ti
the people had presented to them si
a great public question seriously
involving the welfare of the state. al
But now in Louisiana we have q
a great public question before
us, the greatest possible public
'question. d
Clave men did injustice with u
actual clubs. Since so-called
cicmlintion began, the club has
been taxation, There is no other
ipublic question to be compared
in far-reaching importance with
the question of taxation. Taxa
tion systems from the beginning ,
have been unjust and vicious.
But the people within the past p
•century, and notably within the
past quarter century,have been T
finding out howi unjust and vici
ous these systems are. We have
been finding it out in Louisiana,
and now we haveachance to act. of
I beg to address particularly
my fellow.teachers throughout
•the State, although what I have
to say has no more definite ap
pliStlonto them than to any
other citiea. I ask them, if
they have not done so already, to
acquaint themselves with the
main features of the as Amend- a.
ment, and to consider especially m
the notable advantages of the
segregation of state and parish
assessmen~t sand taxes, and of r,
the separsteasseasment of land
and improvements. Itlsnotmy
obijcin this a bri ef arkete n* G
alsje the amendnsto . That
has beendone abd dll be done
by many. My Purpose isto s I
to everye techber w i m
id bst thought and your earnest
activity. If you think that the
proposed tax revision is good,
st now is the time when you can
I become a politician of the right
1e sort and to some purpose. My
it personal thought is that our
,r proposed Amendment is notonly
t, good, but that it is the best pos
t, sible legislation that we could
,f have. I think the passage of the
t. Amendment would put Louisiana
~t in the very front of the woild in
ie the forward movement for bet
ter methods of taxation. Faults
is here and there any of us ,may
n find from odr point of view, but
t taking the Amendment as a
to whole I believe it will stand the
c test of being the best possible
i- legislation that we could have.
r Let me remind you that while
, this prososed revision is a politi
c question in the highest sense, it
o is not a political one in the low
n est sense. It does not belong
to any faction, and nobody should
o support it on the grounds of its
y happening to be a measure pro*
e posed during the present ad
ministration. This movement
d has been forming in men's minds
a for years. The present Gov
r ernor knows that as well as any
body. His chief opponent talked i
d more about it than he did. But
n the movement had to come to
r fruition at some time, and the
r Governor deserves full credit for
Sgivming it welcome, and furthering
I it by all the means in his power.
a Let us not be so small as to be
influenced by any fractional feel.
a ings in this great business, which
, has nothing to do with factions.
It is not the time for the talk of I
b whether one is of Paul or another
I of Apollos. Here is a great
3 proposition that deeply concerns
i our material prosperity, con
- cerns our progress in education
r and public improvements, and
more deeply still concerns jus*
itce and righteousness. Let us
meet the proposition and the op*
I portunity not with fractional
pettiness, but with a wider pat
riotism and a broader vision.
To sum up I would say.
1. Do not be turned aside
the main issue t this or that
slight objection.
2. Do not bring any consider
ation of political factions into the -
question.-'The Country Review.
