Wo have a school law in this Territory the object of which is lo es tablish a freo uns-etarian, undenomi national school in every precinct, of the Territory, for at least a small por tini) of every year. 'd. Wo hail a school in Las Yogas, a established by that law ill Ihe Spring of 1?74. 'Hie law it soli'qtntc probably could be much improved and the fchool also no doubt would have ad mitted of Li rgi improvements. Hut it was a p'irt of a system. It was a H'.-K-t a beginning of better things, and as such I ought lo have had tin? sup- V ailing belief and ttneontradicied ra-1 d-it-?. but for three years it has been mor.''

But I confess to you also that in both cases I did wrong. I should as a tax payer ofthu precinct have pressed my inquiries a little further. In the former case the most natural inquiry in the world would have 1 eon "who bought the bonds and indeed for what purpose were they issued and what became of the pro poets tt'c." In the hitter case a most natural inquiry would have been "how I class of English farmers, lmuiv of them haying large means.
