The public schools, in this vicinity at least, are not in a very nourishing condition. There are not more than one hundred and fifty pupil in the school in the town of Santa Isabel, though a city of not far from a thous and inhabitants, iilthoii'.:h in the school district there are four times that number of children school age. Education is compulsory hut the people do not consider it. so. Child ren swarm the streets during school hours and very little notice is taken of it by the proper authorities. Poli tics in its promt sta;:.1 of t'evclop nteitt, the ban oi ciwliA.thut, seems to have taken a fi.iu hold of the peo- iple, especially the great mass of lower classes, and at the prc-i :t time the United Slates govern; ii,;,t is very pop ular with ihem. The republican party is the American p.nty and mo.it of negros and poorer Porto Jl-cans he long to it, while the federal represent the conservative element and have within their ranks -.he few Spaniard j and all those not satisfied with the I present regime. Under Spanish rule as no one had a j vote, except lie had property sufficient j to be assessed a tax of if 25, and as al- most no negros and the majority of I the whites own no property, the prop erty owners have pretty much their own way. Xow, under the rule of equal sufferage, this class feels little restive at the results of elections when negros get office. The president of the present school board is a negro. The school is not a success. There has been but two teachers, for the one hundred and fifty pupils, thd principal a Porto Rican, and very lax in disci pline, and the teacher of English, un til a week ago, when a lady, the wife of a physician in town, was employed for the intermediate grade. When 'the American teacher of English, ac customed to the well regulated schools in the north, interviewed some of the foremost business men of Santa Isa bel and endeavored to enlist their ac tive interest in the condition of the school, they replied with a shrug, "The president of the school board is a negro. What can you expect from such a state of things?" The wife of the physician, who is a finely educated woman and a lady, has been a candi date for a position from the beeinnine j of the school, but not employed until WHOLE NO.i) all other resources w. re exhaust. d U -cause, as some aver, her husband was a federal. Theold-timo peinicioi custom of audible study is indulged in th schools although the American teach er has, ever since her employment, been doing her best to eradicate it. The pupils have never had hiiv real school training, and the schools are anything but orderly and idea-mnt. The children tier universally bright and do not seem to be at all vicious. More efficient Porto liic.tn teaehem are needed and more American teach ers with authority to organize tint schools on American models should be employed. There is no regular at tend aucc. The children me in ni'tuml today and out tomorrow and no olllcer makes it his business to inquire into the cause. Porto Rico is divided into seven school districts or departments, each supervised by an officer, directly or in directly under the control of the com missioner of education at San Jiiiin. The schools of Santa Isabel have been in progress since the first of October, One visit of half an hour has been vouchsafed from the supervisor and the school in in strenuous need of ufc least a day's active supervision per month until it is in good work it g order. The children as a class, han no habits of application and the p.i T cuts have no idea whatever of what an education mean., to their children. It will take years and money and la bor to get the schools to a point where, they can accomplish a systematic routine of school room discipline and this generation will have nearly pass, cd away before any grettt work' in tint line of methodical education is aehiev ed with this insolent, pleasure-loving! hut kindly people, Union Ccunty Democrats, The Democratic Convention Union county met" in I,a Grande h Friday and nominated the follow i ticket: of st Clerk Sheriff Commissioners Assessor Representative Surveyor Judge J.
