The sensation of the hour is the re
ported resignation of Bismarck. It is
scarcely possible to realize how Germany
will get along without him, inasmuch as
he is practically the maker of the German
Empire. Perhaps no government that
ever existed, certainly Ho one at the pres
ent time, is so much the creation of in
dividual force of will as that which Bis
marck evolved out of a Kingdom into an
Empire. It was not genius so much as
assertion that moulded an incongruous
and disunited people into one mass, in
flamed in them a tace pride, stimulated
their ambition to dominate, tilled them
with the spirit of conquest, fired the lust
of conquest and moulded them into an
impetuous and imperious mnss with
power, resources and solidity of purpose
to make them the possible musters ol
Hurope, und as a consequence of thecivil
iied world. The genius of Hismarck did
not create favorable conditions, he only
availed himsell of them, 'J, J skilfully di
rected them. Perhaps he would not him
found HI opportunity except lor the war
with Austria, waged with a power grow
ing weak from internal dissension and
decay of warlike spirit; an easy conquest
ending in the unification of many small
independent powers into one solid mass,
and reudy to be turned to the gratifica
tion of the revenges upou Prance for all
the sufferings and ignominies endured by
all the German people three quarters ol
a century before. Frunce at tlie feet ol
Germany, and then German ambition
and German arrogance were filled to
overflowing; henceforth no uspirution
wus too daring. It may he that the new
Knieror is satisfied with what he has
attained, und with what bus been
achieved, and that he prefers peace to
war, the prusiierity of his people to the
lartlicr splendors of victory. If so, hi
antagonizes his old Mentor whose "void
is still fur war," and must either rule.
with undivided counsel, or must retire
absolutely. The Emperor hat a will ol
his owu, and a pride that makes him
restive in leading strings, and so Bis
marck's resignation at the age of 75 it
one of the striking incidents of the day.
Institutions of learning ure regarded
in the South as the must desirable of all
creations in such towns as successfulh
invite or secure them. Hence, we wit
ness rivalries between towns through
the competitive presentation of cluimr
that amount almost to 0n hostility,
tit any rate, to angry enstrungemrnt.
Such would not be the case if Souther,
students were lawless, intractable, dis
turbers of peace, offensive to citizens, un
desirable as social clement. We uevei
hear at the South of any of those dis
turbuncet which bring students of col
leges in conflict with the authorities,
such indulgences in mischief a main
them nuisances to their townsmen, such
extremes of youthful college customs a
degrade the manhood of younger stu
dents, often endangering life. Such thing
are not unknown to N.irthcrn institu
lions, and the practice of barliurou.
hazing is almost as firmly established at
the brutal but fostered English school
custom nf fugging. Violations of law.
we are glad to admit, are not common.
Hut there it recent action iixin tlx
part of the mayor of llohokcn, N. J..
which proves tbut one institution ai
least has exceeded tlie bounds of modera
tion, and henceforth, lawless student
will be dealt with as ordinary taw break
ers. The mayor says that hemiftri
when a student of Stevens' institute u
brought before him on n charge of mali
cious mischief or disorderly conduct lit
will sentence him to a term in the count)
jail or the penitentiary, in.teud of im
posing a fine, which la always made u
by contribution from h-lh.w student.
and therefore not Si-It as a punishim-nt.
This is herok- treatment. Hut il sH-akt
badly fur a system which hut so lone,
tolerated student lawlrsaurss to the ex
tent of making life miserable to n good
many Iloboken peorle.

A BIG IMPROVEMENT.
A LAROE PI'RCHASK OF LAND
BV RICHHONU PEARSON,
It la to be Made Into Dealrable
BullcllK Lota-A Nw Hlreet to
be Opened An Auction In June
-The Board Co-Operatea.
A big real estate transfer that has
been brewing for several days has just
been consummated, and by it Mr. Rich
mond Pearson becomes owner of eleven
acres of land lying between the McLoud
property and Eagle street and from
South Main atreet to the branch. The
price paid was $33,500.
Mr. Pearson's plan is to oiien a atreet
from the city jail to Bugle and thence to
connect with Sycamore at an angle; to
clear away all of the shacks and unsightly
buildings which ut present detract greatly
from its appearance; to fill in several
holes; to divide the property into lots
50x170 feet, and to hold a public auc
tion for the sule of them. More than
this Spruce street, which at present runs
to Eagle, will be continued until it con
nects with the proposed Murket street.
All of the new thoroughfares will be fifty
feet in width and Bugle street will also
be widened.
The advantages of the scheme ure
many. The property is situated nearly
in the geographical center of the town,
and when uew streets ure opened and it
is improved it will be not only desirable
lor business but for resident purposes.
Property now the same distance on Pat
ton avenue from court house square tells
at $300 a front foot. Property on the
new adddititm will sell for $50. Bv
the opening of the uew streets much of
the heavy travel on South Main street
will be dune away with. Teamsters can
turn on Sycamore and Market and reach
the city hall. The distance will be nearly
as short and the grude less steep.
A survey of the property is already
being made, and on Monday morning
work will he begun in earnest. On thi
first of April the first of the unsightly
buildings will be torn down or moved
across the branch and a force of work
men will lie put on the streets.
On the west side of Market Irom Eagle
to Sycamore business houses will no
doubt be erected, in fact several have
sKken for them and they will com
pletely hide the rear of the old Eagle
block.
The Board of Aldermen heartily co-op
erate with Mr. Pearson and will act
with him. All of the present property
owners huve hud orders to connect with
the sewers, and if tbev do not comply
at once the work will be dune by the
city aud charged against them.
The date of the auction of lots will be
early in J une.
WHY WHIP AT AI.LT
A Correnpondunt DiHcnaneN sn In
lereatlnti Juration.
Editor Citizen : The case of child whip-
ninif reported in your columns u few days
ago suggests some comment in u line that
cannot lie offensive to either of the par
lies while it mny he ol some service to
the community, ll seems not to buvc
centred to anyone to suggest that the
lierformance of a caich-ns-catch-cnn
wrestling and slugging match in nn Ashe
ville public school brings most into dis
grace not the young offender, innocent or
guilty, nor the teacher, be he innocent or
.iuilty, but Asheville itself.
Hint mny seem at nrst glance tinpron-
able, but tne fact is tbut it is a disgrace
to any system of city schools that makes
it part of the duty of the teacher to
resort to corporeal punishment. It not
.iitlvisnotncccssarv.it is demoralizing
to both icncheranif scholar and nil who
witness it; it is placing the human twine
on par with tbe mule, l lie ox and the
Horse, wtnen now nnu men neeti puiiisn
meiil in public tlie boy or girl never.
Among tbouulitlul educators, too, it
ha long been nn exploded idea that it i
my pari of the kgitnnate duties ol a
teacher to keep a rrlorm school; tu
diuite. other than by example and pre
cept, tbe morals of children. If the
teuener tnorougmv grounus nis (or neri
pupils in the studies before them he hus
lone all Hint lie annum tie naked to uo;
and to add to the profession ol nn in
structor the physical duties of a keeper
if a house of correction or of a convict
camp is to divert by just so much the
powers ol tlie teacher Into n field uuprul-
ilable alike to him and to the pupil.
Hut now, someone itsks, is order to or
kept: bow are offenders nuniust uood
order and industry to lie corrected ?
Well, if tlie parents ol a child cannot
make plain to him that he goes to school
lor one thing only to learn it is no part
of the teacher's work tc enforce that les
son by licatings. If the boy or girl can
not bcliavc in tne luce ni tne tnoiigutiui,
kind and !ut teacher, let hint be sent
home, to be punished there if his parents
so decide, and not to come luick till be or
lie realizes what schools arc for.
Nor would this plan depopulate the
schools. We can know that because a
trial of it elsewhere in hundreds ol
schools has had the best results. Prop
erly enforced by the teacher of tart and
presence, the plan elevates tne wnoie svs-
tern of teaching and cs-inlly puts the
moral training ol the child where it he
limits with t lie parents.
Whipping in schools is out nf date,
essentially wrong in that no child should
lie struck. II at all, by a iersnn not his
parent it being a violation of the child's
rights as well as a terrible outrage on
his reelings and wrong niso uecnuse not
successful in securing the end sought.
