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
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

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

there is nothing to prevent the trustees of a

To the Kdi'.or of the i.lot*-
The public and the newspapers bavins al
ready begun to canvass tbe cbaoecsof various
aspirants for appointments to federal offices,
and the I'*t>u*r Prta ol Ibis date having
mentioned the name of John W. Willis,
Esq., of this city, as one of the number from
whom our next United Slates district attor
ney is to be chosen, I wish to sUle a few
reasons why Mr. Willis would be the wisest
choice that could be made.
The victory of 'W was not won by the
"War Democrats." The young blond of the
party, lighting on live issues, drove the Re
publicans from power. Mr. Willis i-. the
representative ol the vigorous, ag-freasirt*,
young Democracy. lit- bus rvudcrcd to the
party laborious and vatoablc service, not as
taa incumbent of an oaVe, but as the cham
pion of the party's principles on the stump.
Mr. Willis has taken an active part in every
campaign for the last vet) yrars.
He lias always been true to the oarty.
Everything in bis record as a Democrat
favors Hi appointment. As a man, be is
well known to aIL His integrity is unques
tioned; as a lawyer, In- stands among; the
leaders, and I think it may be said of him,
that he will be the ablest district attorney

Gov. Glick ou thp National Trail.
St. Louis, Nov. 29. — Gov. Gllck, who is
a Sbort Horn cattle breeder as well as chief
executive of Kansas, in an interview with a
Democrat reporter, on the action of the
Cattle Men's convention recently held in this
city, stated that the scheme for a great cattle
trail from the Red river to the northern
boundary of the country as marked oat b
the convention was entirely impracticable.
He said, to be of value the trail must be 100
miles wide instead of six miles, as asked for;
besides be alleged they have
no right to a trail through
Kansas or any other state. Tncy now bare
a trail through the western part of Kansas,
but tbe law establishing It will be repealed
by tin- legislature this winter. He also stated
that Kansas lost one half a million dollars
tbe past year from Texas fever, bat hereafter
there will be a strict quarantine against
Texas cattle, established and regulated by
law, In ad of by a simple proclamation .
He disclaimed there was any ill feeling
in Kansas against Texes, but
asserted f>clf-preserv»lion demanded they
should protect themselves. He opposed
leasing public lands to ranchmen, and fa
vored an encouragement of small stock
Growers as being In the beat interest of the
country. He thought the veterinary service
of the United States us now organized a hum
bug. Ti.at it should be improved by the em
ployment of the best veterinarians in the
country, and expressed a belief that tbe dis
ease in Kansas last sprinir, pronounced by
Dr. Salmon to be ergotlrm, was Veritable
fool and mouth disease.

Lootais, trawling repnrsentatiTe of a New

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.

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."

for them. Hundreds of testimonials attest
