HOW IT WORKS.
A Minneapolis P;ipor Quotes a Strad dlebiiff Newspaper to Dispar- • ag-e St. Paul. The Minneapolis Pfommr Pres*, which is unfortunately priuted in Ht l'aul, bas been making a weak show of zealous loyalty to Bt. Paul, but only that it may the more pointedly 6tat> this city and snmre ■ feu euliEcribc.rs at a rival point. Tlu*> poli<y ib well illiislraU-d by the foUowing comment of the Iflnneapotti Trihuw a lew days aKO. Notice the Uhe. the Mil Despoils p;:p. r makes of the .P. /'. com* meats; a BiaxmcAjrT oovt&ist. r D* tcstlraouj void) a St. Paul newspaper bore, yesterday m/>rninir, t«. tie im mensur able superiority of the public schools of Min neapolis over those of its own city, wts as remarkable for the state of facts it disclosed in St. Paul as for tbe frankness with which it compjimented the younger city. If this antithesis hud been presented in aMiuncaj> oils newspaper it might well have Kerned exaggerated to toe reading public; but, ap pearing as it itoef in a Si. Paul paper which is known to be jealous, almbit to a fault, of the honor and stanltng of its own city, the contrast is neeiasarilyniuoti Intensified. It would be casting a gratuitous and unmerited slur on tbe well known character of the St. Paul J'Umcer Prm to intimate that it could under any conceivable circumstauces so for get itself as to overstate the excellence of anything in Minneapolis, or unduly depre cate anything in St. Paul. It Is the charac ter of the witness which gives this remarka ble testimony its peculiar value. As to tbe condition of our schools lien- in Minneapolis, we are all familiar with the general farts; but perhaps we are too accus tomed to the pleasant places in winch our lot bus fallen to be diffidently mindful that our privileges arc not enjoyed everywhere. Min neapolis has had good schools as a matter <>} course. She has elected excellent school boards because she would not have been satisfied with any other; and the school boards have employed excellent superintend ents and teachers, and have built excellent buildings, and have provided in the most Wise and enlightened manner for the school accommodation of j>. rapidly growing popu lation, simply because they would have been recreant and blameworthy if they had done otherwise. It Is a duty which every commu nity owes itself to have irood elementary schools; and nobody can ask praise lor doing merely his duty. But after all, praise is Bweet. The St. Paul paper says that our school buildings are '-admirably adapted" to their purpose, and are "externally an or nament to the city that our school board ''con.' v. body of picked nun in earnest about Hi' duties for which they arc chosen, quick to perceive and ready to supply the public Bee Is; that they are. men who ''might direct the affair.- of a university without det riment to its progress;" that our MtperlntKfl dent is "a man of rare efficiency and organ izing ability, whose reeoin mendutious are supported by the board, faithfully and with unanimity;" and that our schools and school system "lire a constant cause of just public pride, and have added immeasurably to the reputation ol the city and to its attractive ness as a place of residency lor Intelligent families." Our people here have known comparatively little about the schools of St. l\:ul, and arc Born to learn the tad facts port-rayed by the representative organ of that city, in school matters St. Paul has "been tadfy and dis gracefully left behind." In contrast with the tvveuty-eight "admirably adapted. buildings in Minneapolis, St. Paul has eighteen "burn like structures," and they an; "hideous de formities lor the most part." People showing visitors the city hurry by one of these school butldtnica u in "the hope of avoiding the ex planation that it was not a reform school or a city lock-up." It seems" that the St. Paul people have always preferred to elect very bad men for school directors. We would hardly believe it possible that tlii.-e men could be so bail, on any other testimony than thai of the Pioneer Press. "St Paul has 1.,- , curbed within nil recent tntrnory by obstruction, incoinjjcfeiwe and absolute fgmurtatet in tin con duct of its educational ajjairs. It hat had a $uccßurton of school boards thai would be a dis grace to a factory town, some of than boasting members vlto actually could not read and write.* 1 As lor the present board, "a large majority of them are not fitted for the trust they hold," having "neither business ability nor intelligence," and, worst of all, they are men "atrainst whom the mildest charge la that they are Incapable " This is indeed I deplorable state of affairs. A series of school boards so bad that incapacity is the mildest charge that can be urged acainst them, is indeed a curse to I city. Very much more is said in the article, but it is all so sad and unpleasant, and reveals so profoundly shock ing a condition ot things in our neighboring city, that we must refrain from quoting any further, and draw the veil, so to speak, right here.

C. A. McXe.vle, Secretnry. Opinions by Attorney General Hahn. Attorney General Halm issued a uuinoer of opinions yesterday on rarioas subjects. Iv reply to Superintedent Kieble of the department of public instruction, be holds that there is but one legal holiday recognized by the legislature of Minnesota, viz., Feb. 22, or Washington 'B birthday, but there are pertain other days which have been acknowl edged by iiiimemmnrial usage aud generally considered as holidays, such asTnanksgiv- Ing, Christmas and July 4th. Respect to the president and the governor commands the observance of the two first. The observance of the second by all Christian people and the fact that the last i* hallowed by the whole natlou of the anniversary of Indepen dence, would seem to require that all public schools be closed ;>n these days. Other days Blight be mentioned on which common usage recognizes the propriety of omitting to hold public exercises, and which should therofore be Included in this class.' Of course there is nothing to prevent the trustees of a school district stipulating that a teacher shall hold school on any or all of tne*e days or that a deduction sA.tll he BWOS l»v reason of the sehooi bi'iui; eccaaei for such a day, but in tin* absence of sack an agrwwaeal toe mir lornty general BOUs that the district |gHshk to the teacher for huch days, the name v if the school had l.ccli rctuiarlv held. Toe supreme court of the United States follows this rulinir. In reply to the auditor of Waton won county the attorney ajeaaral holdß that a certificate of election as senator should not be granted to W. K. Holmes, who received Ml vote* for scnat'ir in the Eighth district, because no wrt of election was i-MJ-d by the governor. In the ease of Mrs. Ella GalftU, elected county per! c ten dent of f<-!i Mils of Pun county in IBBS, and bolding the oases since (the term to expire nextj'ear). the attorney general hold* that she is perfectly entitled to the officv*,and a certification of election should be re.uird to .J. D. Wilcox, who re ceived eighteen votes for tbe office «t the re cent, election, and has applied for a certifi cate of (lection. To a question of the "county fcupcrintcu dent of Pine county, it is held that a pehooj district clerk must keep ail recordl himself, and within the dUtrlct. If (it it: tbe <■ i-e t,f ■rhw4 district N<». I4A, the clerk refuses or neglect* -•> U> do, be it liable to a line id $10 for each offence.

A Drammer's Experience in the Plmrae Stricken District of Eastern Kentucky. Whole Neighborhoods Dying, With no One to Bury the Last Victim of the Dreadful Scourge. Droves of Cattle and Sheep Lav Dead and Ikottlnc — Tli«- Country .Nothing bat a Parched, barren Wilderness. Locistillk. Ky , Not. 23.— Arthur 11. Lootais, trawling repnrsentatiTe of a New York Una, was in Mm city to-day, bavin*; ju«t returned from a trp through the plague stricken district of rutern Kentucky. Mr. Loom is said: "I was four days in Martin county with out disposing of a tin;:* article. The peo »re absolutely crazy; they have no use for anything but coffins. A great deal Las been printed in the newspapers about the situa tion in Martin and adjoining counties, but it has been but a imperfect reflex of tbe exist* ing deplorable condition. I know of in stances where whole families bare died within a week; where neighborhoods haTe been swallowed up in th« grave; where one man has survive.! to bury his family and his friends md then hf en found dead with no living creature near him, except in some cases a faithful dug. Flocks ol sheep and drove* of cattle that used t.i browse on the hillsides and along the range of the CumberUnds, now lay dead and rotting. White pebbles glisten on the bottom of the creek beds; wells and cisterns have bct-n drained to the bottom, and springs are no longer to be relied upon for a supply of water. Tbe ground is literally parchrd. Whrru vre»-L.ti»n formerly biooim-d luxuri antly then is uotiiiuc but detay. Thousands are said k> have died within the last two works." M Waati In the opinion of the natives. Is the cau.e ot till* fatal eajaasl "It is very evident that the chief asrent of death i.* starvation. People in those dis tricts are almost without communication with tbe outside world. An occasional drum mer, like myself, strays among them once a year, and a few of Hie most prusperuus visit some large cities once in a Hie tim ' T * A' L'<xiil season brines with it bountiful crops. Wool, and other native products, are rudely manufactured into clothing. But when their crops fail them the orderof things Is reversed. I am speaking now of the backwoods neigh hoods, where the plague has raged with the Creati-st fatality. I learned, wuile In Martin enmity, that the crop yield for two succes»i\e seasons bad been a failure. The natives are without money and without means, to pur chase bread. Tue shutting off of the water supply has biougbt la the surface a poisonous liquid. Famished for water, the people drank, and the consequence was death. The first symptom* are violent grip ings, and after this a raging headache. A hot fever ensues, and the patient usually linger* two days, Buffering mental agony, Ik lore death. I understand several physic lans have been commissioned by the sUte to make a careful analysis of the water, and describe the poisonous ingredients. Relief has recently been despatched to Martin from neighboring counties. Before I left there was a light rainfall, and prospect.- of contin ued failing weather. The opinion prevails that the plague has passed through Its most dangerous stages and is now on the wane. During the last few days of my *>Uy I heard of very few deaths." Very R mark ible Kectivery, Mr. Geo. V. Willing, of Manchester, Mien., writes: "My wife Las been almost helpless for five yean, so helpless that she could not tarn over in bed alone. Bbc used two bottles of Electric Bitten, and is so much improved that she Is able now to do her own work." Electric Bitters will do all that is medical for them.
