of tho public schools of tho Stato, and
tho manuscript Is now In tho ban Is of
tho prlntor, and will bo ready for dis
tribution shortly. Tho report Is for tho
school year commencing July 1, 1888,
and ending Juno 30, 1889. Under tho
head of "General Suggestions" Mr.
Coleman says:
A caroful comparison of tlio statistics and
general condition of tliu rchnnls of the State
for tbn school year herein reported with uny
previous yt-ar will show dtcldt-d Improve-
H j inent. Mure teachers vero employed, and

Discussing tho needs of tho School
law, Mr. Coleman says that it should
fully set out tho subjects to bo taught
In all tho public schools of tho Mate.
Higher branches, ho says, should be ad
mitted only by order of tho board or by
a vote of the people. Concerning tlio
teaching ot temperance ideas in tho
public schools, Mr. Coleman says:
Tlio law on tcuchliiK' tlio evil efficts of
alcoholic .ithNulanH and narcotics upon tlio
liuinau sdteui Is a farco nnrl ti Ir.itHl.
The luw, as It taml, Is worthies', nndliouU
he lcpcaled or amended.
In regard to teaching foreign lan
guages In tlio public schools, ho says:
The law should specify definitely In what
laiiKuaK the instruction In our public

dlsglneo to Atncilc.iu institutions to liavo

done w holly or in part In many districts In

gotten or smothered for the sake of the Ger
man vote.
The teaching of church creeds Is most
severely condemned. H" believes that
tho Legislature mado a most serious
mistake by not establishing county su
pervision. In the matter ot the education of col
ored children he says:
While fifteen colon d hlldren cm lie Hindi)

thirty w bite chlldicn to secure the same: so
that In plac" ot the law dKcrlinlnatln:!
