INCREASED APPROPRIATIONS MUST
BE SECURED.
We are in receipt this week of a circular
letter from the able and energetic Superin
tendent of Education L. J. Alleman of Lafa
yette parish, in which the several deficiences
in our public school system are clearly point
ed out with the hope that the people and the
press of Louisiana might take up the mat
ter and make every effort to have the existing
defects remedied by our next Legislature.
Auditor Frazee in a strong address deliv.
ered before the Convention of Parish Super
Intendents of Louisiana last October called
the attention of the Superintendents to the
small amount of money appropriated by the
State for the public schools as compared with
the appropriations for the institutions of "
higher education. According to the Auditor,
the State appropriates annually $200,000 for
8,500 students in the institutions of higher
education, as against $345,000 for 200,000 "
pupils in the public schools. Side by side
the figures appear thus:
$200,000 for 3,500 students.
$345,000 for 200,000 students.
The per capita expenditure for advanced
students $57; for public school children $1.65.
These figures speak for themselves and 1
they tell a tale which exposes a shameful
condition of affairs.
At present we have public schools but 4
live or six months in the year. Teachers are i
paid but poor salaries and owing to the short
ness of the yearly scholastic term the services
of good teachers cannot in most cases be se
cured.
Why cannot Louisiana have a good pub
lic school system? Everything is on the up
ward tendency and progress is reported in t
every branch. Will the most important, that
of education, be neglected? Conditioned as
we are, can we lay claim to a place of promi- S
nence among our more favored sister States,
where the lamp of education sheds its mellow
light in every nook and corner and from one
end of the year to the other? We believe
not.
The Legislature at its next session begin
ning the 12th of May, should carefully study
the public school systems of those States e
where public education is a success, and give
us one condensing the cream of all. After r
which let a sufficient appropriation be made t
to keep our schools open the whole echolastic
year. Appropriations heretofore made have
not only been too small but insignificant. c
We commend this subject to our law- P
makers. No money can be appropriated for a
purpose in which the whole people is more
interested than that of the cause of education. h
Let it not be said that appropriations are b
withheld or made small for the sake of re- h
form and retrenchment. There is no reform a
or retrenchment in throttling the voice of tl
education and depriving the youths of ai
8tate of its beneflt.
In New York last week prominent Demo-anp
crate assembled at the Manhattan Club for tl
the purpose it was said of promoting har- k
mony in the party. Mr. Bryan was not in
vited. A long address was delivered by Ex
Senator David B. lHill, without doubt a can- e
didate for the presidential nomination in 11
1904. In the course of his remarks he spoke ,
against a permanent system of colonial de- C
pendencies and for granting tariff concessions In
to Cuba. He gave the greatest prominence i
to revenue reform as the issue which the I)em- eI
ocrats should most earnestly advocate. "A or
tariff for revenue onlly," he said was the great tlh
permanent issue in support of which thel,"
Democrats were unitedl whi-le there was sonme ar
division in the Republican party corncerning on
protection. As to silver, a simple declaration of
in favor of the general principal of interna- bc
tional binetalinm would be sufficient. Hisiw
platform also includ.ts home rule for States, re~
tile regulation a:Il ' omttr_,l of c:o0r14 atioms, in
the election of Seiinatr by direc·t vot¶*, the wi
Monroe D),:triit,. ympathy for thie Boers, in

1(ENRY OF PRUSSIA.
The arrival of Prince Henry of Prussia
or. has been the cause of great demonstrations
by our people. The welcome he received in
wr. this country will long be remembered by the
,0 Prince as he has never been so honored be
. fore. The Prince, who is an Admiral in the
German Navy, and the brother of the Em-r
,- peror of Germany, is a most genial and affable
gentleman, and every courtesy and every
honor should be shown him. His visit here
- will no doubt have a tendency to establish
lab more friendly relations between the United
States and Germany. In fact the two coun
° tries are now exchanging love Imptes, and are
as affectionate to-wards each other as lovers.
Long may this condition continue.
RECIPROCITY TREATY.
Lr The latest from Washington in regard to
n- the policy to be adopted towards Cuba is an
a- agreement reached by the Committee on
Ways and Means by which the President is
authorized to negotiate a reciprocity treaty
e with Cuba. The President is to demand the
admission of American products into the
' Island at a lower rate of duty than those
father countries and to reduce our tariff du
v ties on Cuban goods of not more than 20 per
r- cent.
This seems to be a compromise agreement
1e after consultation with President Roosevelt.
1e The friends of American industries
h should litterally oppose this agreement.
There is no reason to reduce our duties on
' Cuban goods unless we wish to cripple our
r industries. This is a blow aimed at sugar as
r that will be the article more largely imported.
There are enough opponents to the measure'
e to defeat it if they will only stand firm, butI
there is but little reliance to be placed on
Northern Republicans and the likelihood is I
they will answer the party lash. I
d The hope of the sugar planter is in the
" Democratic party. The Republicans are one
d by one turning his back on him.
The Sentinel extends to the Lafayette
Lt Gazette and its very able and talented editor
e its congratulations and best wishes on having
- entered upon the publication of its tenth
a volumn. We hope .that the influence of the
Gazette will continue to prove as far reaching
in the future as it has in the past. While Bro.
Mouton is too modest to claim much credit
for the upbuilding of Lafayette, still the peo
a ple and every one who has read his excellent
t paper accord to him much deserving praise.
a
HOME OWNING THE GREATEST FAC
TOR IN BUILDING CITIZENSHIP.
s -_
e The Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage in a ser
mon the other day drew the following very (
- beautiful picture of a home, its powerful and
Severlasting influence, and how to acquire
one. Hear this excellent advice:
"It is the delusion as to what is necessa
rry for a home that hinders so many from es
stablishing one. Thirty rooms are not necee.
Ssary, nor twenty, nor fifteen, nor ten, nor
five, nor three. In the right way plant a
table and couch, and knife and fork, and a
cup and a chair, anid you can raise a young
Sparadise. Just start a home, on whatsoever
L small a scale, and it will grow. When King
Cyrus was invited to dine with an humble
friend, the king made the one condition of
his coming that the only dish be one loaf of
Sbread and the most imperial satisfactions
have sometimes banqu.ted on the plainest
fare. Do not be caught in the delusion of
I many thousands in postponing a home until
Sthey can have an expensive one. That idea
is the devil's trap that catches men and wo
men innumerably who will never have any
home at all Capitalists of America, build
plain homes for the people. Let this tene
ment house system, in which hundreds of
thousands of the people of our cities are wal
lowing in the mire, be broken up by small -
homes, where people can have their own fire-i
siades and their own altars. E
"In this great continent there is room
Senough for every manl and woman to have a
home. Morals and civilization and religion
I demand it. We want done all over this land
what George Peabody and Lady Burdett
Coutts did in England, and sonme of the large
mamu, facturers of this country have done for
the villages and cities, in buildling small
hlouses at low rents, so that the middle class
es can have separate homes. They are the
only class not provided for. The rich have L
'their palaces, and the poor have their poor
houses, and criminals have their jails; but
what about the honest middle classes, who
are able and willing to work and yet have
small income ? Let the capitalists, inspired
of God and pllre patriotism, rise and build
whole streets of small residences. The la
borer may have, at the close of the day, to
walk or ride further than is desirable to
reach it, but when he g¶ets to -,his destination
in the ov.nmtide, he will filld something
worthy of Ibeing called by that glorious and
impassied aid an u hea\eu-decendig word-
