When the Post referred to the De Lome

will not take into account the joke mak?

j Mr. Sherman is reported as being too
? indisposed from the effects of a cold to
(be able to attend to any business. Just
I at this juncture of affairs it would seem to
;be highly nrifortuuuto that the country
: should be deprived of the advice of its
Peoretary of Stale, for if there ever was a
time whan a clear head and a sound jutlg
went were demanded it is now. There
are many, however, who will see in this
reported Indisposition only an attempt
of the Secretarv of Statu to avoid the re?
sponsibilities which the late' Spanish
jcomplications have forced upon him.

the turpitude of the act that gave his va?

as occurred fo. yenrs in that "uodv* has

le promptness with which it was , pi t

Another effect of the preuepitancy of Sen?

These things will go far to offset the hot?

T'ie petition of son.eof tioanoke coun?

Introduced raising the age of admission
Into the public schools from live to six
years, is one based on practical lines. In
fact we believe could many of the school
iiaestious that came before the legisla?
ture be left to school people for decision
the results would be more likely to meet
the wants in the case. About such
things our legislators often mean well
euouuh, but the trouble is they don't
know, nor does any one who has not had
a practical t ut of them in the school?
room. Five years of age is too young for
any child to enter the schoolroom.
Apart from the question of confinement
at so tender an age, :.t is waste of time in
that nothing is gained by It. Ttie child

half who have entered school together,
all else heim.' equal, will he found at the

The teacher whose duties lie in tl e pri?
mary department knows from experience
that with children under six years of age
she stands r.o 'hem in about tau relation
of an upper nurse. TLo most she can
hope to do is to amuse and keep them
quiet. To raise the required age for en?
trance, wnuld be a practical way too,
to decrease to some extent the expenses
of the State, inasmuch as it would di?
mmish the number of pupils, thereby de?
creasing tbe number of teachers. Of
course, however, this would be applica?
ble! only to it.t; towns and cities in which
there are graded schools. But even in
our district schools, by removing a class
of little ones that de nands much of tue
teacher's tioe and attention, and for
which as we have just said there is no
adequate compensation in results attain?
ed, it- would give the teacher more time
to devote to those who are of an age to
profit by the work. As to the question
of health, we will not even go into that
further than to say that we believe that
the present law admitting children at
the age of five should be abolished ou
the ?round oi' cruelty and positive detri?
ment to health. The petit ion is a level
headed one, and it acted upon could not
fail to be beneficial to our schools and to
the children themselves.
BETTER PAY YOUR TAXES.
In this morning's issue ot The Times
will be found the complete text of the
delinquent laud hill, a bill enacted for
the purpose of preventing wholesale steal?
ing of delinquent lands under n law that
gave the real owner no opportunity to
protect his interest. The bill is one that
was offered In the senate by Mr. Clay tor,
and was passed ty the senate the third
day fif its session, but was hung up in
the house. A careful reading of the bill
will show that, r.hile it gives taxpayers
relief, and places obstacles in the way of
sei/.ure by land grabbers, yet delinquent
bind owners will as certainly lose their
property under this act as under the old
one unless they pay their luxes. The
bill was never designed to shut the State
out of ira just claims, but was framed
for the purpose of g'vine relief to those
wit , through no fault, of their own were;
?ibout to lose their property under one of
the most. injquitious laws ever placed
upon the .statine books of any State.
Parties then who are delinquent should
with as litt led delay as possible hasten to
squire their accounts with the State.
This bill is oue whose fate has been look?
ed forward to by the people of Roanoke
with more interest perhaps than any
otter measure that has been before the
legislature, and now that it has been ap?
proved find is in force from its passage,
wo congratulate the peopte of Virginia
upon their riddance of the unjust oppres?
sion of the old bill which it replaces.
Wo pride ourselves on keeping the
BEST of everything in our line and in
making prompt deliveiy. Book out for

PROTECTION FOR NEW ENGLAND.
Under the above caption the Richmond
In our i ress dispatches yesterday, it
was reported that a delegatlcu of South?
ern cotton mill men had appeared before
the judiciary committee of the house to
oj nose the passage of the joint resolution
proposed by William L?veling, member
fro**i Massachusetts, to amend the Con
si tuition ot the [Jutted .-'tales so as tc
authorize Congress to regulate the hours
of labor In I he different States.
A New York commercial aewspaper
says that New England mill owners are
re-presented as being behind the proposed
amendment, "believing as they do that
their powerful rivals in the South should
not be allowed to employ libor for longer
hours than 'n the North."
It will be recalled that Chairman Ding
ley in a speech or: the tariff a week or two
ago virtually gave his sanction to the
proposed amendment, although bej'WRS
sly enough not to commit himself ab?
We commented on Mr. Dingley's speech
at the time and directed attention to the
danger of the movement just inaugura?
ted. Well may the Southern manufac?
turers protest. Well may every freeman
protest against this proposed usurpation.
It Is protection earned to its logical end
??wtaieh is protection run mad.
New England has ever been the hotbed
of protection and its industries have
grown up under a system of exclusion
and bounty for which the people of the
whole count-y have had to pay. So long
as there was no con: pet ition in theSc'-/ .h,
New Knglnud was quite content with a
tariff that kept out foreign products in
competition. But now that, the South
has gone Into the manufacturing busi?
ness and has shown its ability to make
cotton goods cheaper than they can lie
made at the North, New England is cry?
ing for protection ag.iinst the South.
