There will be a Citizens Meeting this evening at the Court House to select can didates for the Board of Education. This is as it should be. In the selection, the choice should be made exclusively in the interest of the schools and for the com mon benefit of all. Anything like clique or partisan movement should at once be suppressed. Let the common consent of our citizens make the choice simply and olely upon the grounds of fitness for the office and willingness to perform the duties of the position intelligently and with out prejudice either sectarian or religous. It is not necessary to a proper under standing of our position on this question tnat 1HE A EG us snouid enter into a lengthy discourse about the nature or ob ject of our public schools. Schools are in stituted by the state because it is thought that an intelligent and somewhat culti vated peoples are essential to the perma nence of our form of government. They are intended to be so orgauized that they shall be of common benefit and objects of com nnn interest, All classes are therefore taxed lor their support. All are expected to have a voice in the election of Bchool officers, and all ought to feel interest enough to participate in such elections. I Everything not teudiog to the one object of having good schools whouM be carefully avoided. Upon this point hinges the whole subject, and here is where The' AltOUS stands. For this single purpose we have always contended, and have ever favored the election of good men who take an especial interest in having good schools. It is to such and such only that we would entrust their charge and management. Lei this evening's selection be made irre. spective of any partizan feeling, let it be done upon the broad basis of general in terest and public welfare, let the candi date be men of intelligence, public spirit, and houcst friends of the schools, and we hall give them hearty support. We don't care a fig whether they are Democrats or Republicans, so that they ar good men, well qualified, fair minded, aud are ehoeep and elected upon their raerits and for their personal qualifications. But we do un qualifiedly object to our schools being run in the interests of party, or sectarianism, or to their being made the instruments of designing men tor the furtherance of cor rupt and jobbing purposes.

The Argus is well pleased with the very sensible action of those who attended the Republican meeting at the Court House on Saturday evening, in that they so pos itively condemned the attempt to drag the ' . , om a schools into polities. The proposition to unite with the Hillier's Hall meeting in holding a citizens meeting at the Court House this evening, will meet with the , , -. , .. 4, hearty approval ot all friends ot the schools. Tbe one meeting in making the proposition, aud the other in so readily accepting it showed a disposition on the part of both to act in accordance with the fullest and freest expression of tbe people. Those who absent themselves from the Court House this evening either take no interest in the schools, or must be satisfied with whatever action taken. A full and free discussion of tbe situation can do no harm. Believing, as tbe ARGUS does that a very positive majority of tbe citizens are earnest supporters of our system of public schools a t-ystem upon which, to a a very large extent, depends the intelli geuce and usefulness of American citizens, the meeting must be productive of good to the school. It is desired that there be a large attendance, especially as a strong and probably successful attempt will be made to nominate two women for members of the School Board. There are strong arguments in favor of this, to our city, new departure, and hence the importance of a large attendance and the widest range of argument. If the discussions and the action of the meeting this evening be independent of all prejudices of politics, reliiiioa, sex or condition, aud only locking to what, under existing circumstances, is best for the wchools, then 8cJ; c.c'ion will assuredly be endorsed at the polls. Art the duties of tbe school board such that women can perform them better, or as well as men, ie the question to be decided thja evening, How can I have clear and brilliaut com plexion?

The Court House Meeting. The meeting at the Court House Satur day evening, called by J, M, Montgomery, Cbmn. Rep, City Com." was a very slim affair, The meeting was called to meet at 7.30 o'clock, and at that hour The Argus reporter arrived but found only the sheriff and the Union reporter present. The three waited patiently, and finally, about 8 o'clock, D. P. McKown and Frank Pbilleo came in but seeing only the three present, they walked out again. About 8.30 o'clock A. F. Fleming came but soon left, with the remark that he was going up to the other place Hul- 1CT S Hall, JamesM. Montgomery, - r, i , few minutes later. ne wanted to know "where allSthe con- vention was and nobody answering him I he walked out. About 9 o clock a dozen persons, who had &980mbled on the steps below, came in. and before they could leave, Montgom ery called the meeting to order and stated us ODiect to nominate two memoers o . board of educati0D- IIe also nomina. t.A D Trnesiiaia aa chairman. Dr. Truesdale arose and "respectfully declined" to serve giving as his reasons " was aireaay amemuer 011 n ooaru and then, he understood that this was t RepuUican meeting. "If this is true," he gaid, "and the meeting intends to nomin ate party men, then I decline to have anvthine to do with it." Montgomery then nominated Geo. Mix . na -i,-:.-..-,. Mr. Mixter de- cliried for the same reasons, as those given by Dr. Truesdale, except that he was not a member ot the board. Montgomery then nominated S.S.Guyer. Quyer also declined-saying he was not in favor 0t this being a liepublioan meeting He also advocated the selection of women to fill the oihees on the board. S. r. Cooke was finally induced to accept the chair, and J.J. rarks (as usual) was shoved in as secretary J. M. Montgomery moved that the meeting proceed to nominate two candi dates for the office ot board of education Dr. Truesdale moved as an amendment that a committee of three be appointed by tne cnair to comer witn tne miner s nan a V f -.1.1 tT-ll" 1 TT I meeting, to see if some compromise could not be effected by which a joint meeting could be held to nominate candidates.

Montgomery arose and said he bad never made a speech in his life and he didn't expect to then but he wished to make an explanation, lie said 1HE ARGUS had charged him with having called a Re publican meeting, but he couldn't see where it found the grounds for making those charges. He was not personally in terested in the schools, except that he would like to see them prosper, and when two or three of his mends requested him to call a meeting, he did so, but having no other thought about the matter than that it should be a meeting of the citizens and not a Republican meeting. (juyer was then requested to spout ' on the "woman question." He arose and said he believed he was the only lady's man present, ana ne was proud ot it. (Jim Parks Are the ladies? AnnlauseJ I Ie then nrooeeded to rive his reasons for wanting women elected to the board that ,t was beinr done at other places and was a success; that nearly all ot our teachers were women, and that he thought two women on the board would be a benefit to tbe schools. Thomas Thornton opposed the nomioa tion of women, and thought that if tbey were elected they would soon run the 1 1 3 I . u " referre(j t0 tue time when ourEehools were conducted by women when, as he said, they wera a disgrace to tbe city. He also dvocated the reduction of salaries of the school officers from the superintendent d0WDn(j saii that when labonnir men were working 10 and 11 hours for from 75 cents to $1.25 it was time that public anairs were run on a more economical plan tbe laboring man could not afford to pay tve taxe8 Dr. Truesdale arose and said that Mr. Montgomery's apology for caliinir the meeting was entirely satisfactory to him but he did not believe that the people gen erally wanted to bring politics into school matters and he did not believe Mr. Mont gomery did but. when that eentleman signed that call as "Chmn. Iiep. City Com," he branded it as a political conven tion, He closed by saying that "as soou as we bring politics into our schools down go the schools." Dr. Truesdale also opposed tbe selection of women to 11 the vacancies on the board not because he did not think they were competent, but thought it would be an ex periment which he did not like to attempt at this time -when there was so much opposition in our publics schools. The conference committee here returned and reported that the Hillier's Hall meet ing bad agreed to meet this convention and the meeting then adjourned to meet at he Court House at 7:30 o'clock this evening "Jttaking' Old Bones."
