Tho Toronto convention of tho Na tional Municipal league endorsus the Kinclplo of home rulo government for cities In opposing state regula tion of Ras, electric light, telephone and street railway corporations, de claring that as they arc urban In character they should come under municipal Instead of state control. Undoubtedly, as a general proposi tion, better results are obtained by such control, for It brfngs the regu lating power and tho people, as well as the utility, Into closer contact and should promote better co-operation than through gtato regula tion. Where the utility Is purely local it presents only local problems and Is better handled, therefore, by local authorities whoso Interests aro Immediately tied up with those of tho utility. Of course, such corpora tions as Interurban street railways and long dlstanco telephone or power plantB present other than strictly local aspects as well, but even such cases leave tho soundness of tho principle of local self-government or home rulo potont and unimpaired. Diplomatic Amenities. "The return of William F. Mc Combs from Paris with the rejected French ambassadorship on his hands brings once more to tho front the practical exclusion of high class Americans from Important diplo matic posts unless they are rich men," flays tho New York Journal. Mr. McCombB declined tho office on the ground that ho could not afford to hold it for the salary of $17,000 a year. It is true we havo drawn exten sively upon our rich men to represent us in ambassadorial positions and with few exceptions the nation has been creditably roprosentod. Dut we havo also, oven during the pres ent administration, drawn upon meu of limited means for such service. It surely will not bo argued that soma of tho distinguished scholars recently sent abroad were selected because of their financial circum stances. If our nation's dignity and pres tige can survlvo the notorious lack of embassy houses abroad common surato with bur position among tho powora, Burely It can endure the ef fects of an ambassadorship exclu sively maintained 'on tho official sal- 'ary attaching. Perhaps If a few Americans had not set some nptablo examples of tho lavish display of their wealth In foreign capitals this question of income and oxpenso might not be obtruding. Wo never stop to rate financially a foreign rep resentative coming to AVaahlnKton It ho has substantial attainments back of him.

It Is gratifying to feel that hostlll ties have been averted betwoon Oov orsor Morehead, backed by his offi cial staff ot colonels and the state mllltla, on which the governor's Nor folk speech seemed to reflect. Tho governor fired what sounded like u heavy artillery gun in expressing the opinion that the mllltla was a good thing for a youth to let alone. As It appeared In tho papers It had all tho earmarks ot well-directed volley, but now the governor, repulsed by the enemy, capitulates to the extent of declaring that that was not what ho nuant, at all: that, on the contrary. what ho really Intended to say, and thought he was saying, was that tho state mllltla was about the finest thing going for a robust lad looking for a chance to let off some of his surplus energy. It was all the fault of an extomnor- aneous spetch, the governor expjalns. in otner words, the thing went off half-cocked. I(o did not even know It was loaded. No doubt the gov ernor will be more cautious how he fingers th0 hair-trigger of one ot those automatic speeches again. Dut what gets us Is, why Governor More head did not resort to the usual ex pedient of those caught In similar predicaments and blame thB reporter who chronicled his speech, hldlng be hind the assertion that he garbled or deliberately misstated what he said. After achieving the distinction of serving continuously as a member of the cabinet longer than anyone else, ex-SecreAary of Agriculture James Wilson is going to write out his ex periences and observations In the na ture of an autobiography.

Inside of the Teachers' Contest. STEnLINO. Neb., Nov. 15.-TO the Edi tor of The Bee: I cannot rend you the famous message, "We have met the enemy and they are ours." that Oliver Perry sent to Oenerat Harrison after his great battle on Lake Eric because when we met "the enemy" they would not keep their promise long enough to stage a square fight. I refer to the late contest at the State Teachers' association. I want to go Into the reason why the "Insurgent" resolution was Introduced, and, while dblng so, throw a little light upon the workings of the "Invisible power," or the controlling spirit in our school affairs. There was a misunder standing, and there Is yet In regard to this matter, Those who fought for a principle have been labeled Thomas men. This fact does not worry me, as I would rather be classed with Thomas than with some ot those who are fighting him. The act of dubbing the Insurgents Thomas men makes good haltooa for the "ring men," and withal rery pleasing to them; but, regardless ot their claims, I want to show the public that the movement which hsd Its climax, for the present, at Omaha last Friday, began to formally shape It self Just after the announcement of the stuffing of the enrolling list by the Lin coln Commercial club a year ago, when the executive committee returned over 11,000 to the club, and not, the spontan eous combustion of the Thomas affair, as they would have you believe, The Thomas affair has been an unfortunate one for these !;pedagoglcal sluggers," as. It haa uncovered and has lighted up the pathway the Insurgents have been traveling the last year, and we do not deny taking advantage of this Incident to bring about that which we havo been working for. The fact is wo struck our landing sooner than we ex pected, and I am perfectly happy over it How did It happen that the resolution was Introduced In the form that It was? To be concise and to the point, tho reso lution was the product of State Superin tendent James E. Delsell'a pencil to sat isfy the Insurgent forces, which were bearing down upon him at this time with a force, probably equal to the force which wns brought to bear upon him when he betrayed a friend by voting to oust him without a hearing. NowT let me go back to one year ago when the association was In session and seo what happened when Mr Delzell was elected president and recall what may be considered the first step of the reason why the resolution was Introduced, that Is, ono of the many acta of the ruling force. The convention of the First district had been called to elect, delegates for the purpose of making nominations for the offices, and the teachers had begun to assemnie at the high school building to attend the convention. Superintendent Clark of Pawnee City, and I were visit ing on the first floor, when one ot our superintendent friend from the First dis trict came up and' said, "Como on, boys. lot's go up and beat the 'ring' out of the delegation." We went to the convention room, where we found our present deputy state superintendent with a 'handful ot written ballots and busily engaged In distributing them to the teachers, and, aa a matter ot course, I received one ot the ballots. I waa Informed that It waa a battle royal between the nbrmal schools. with A. O. Thomas on one side, and W. N. Delzell on the other, and never knew any better until the nominations were announced and found that It was brother "Jim" Instead of brother Will that was nominated. Our surprise came In the convention when we found our friend a few minutes after entering, with his sleeves rolled up working for the "gang." I have been Informed that his reward was a member, ship In the Schoolmasters' club. I am not able to vouch for the truthfulness of this statement, but merely repeat rumored re ports. Nevertheless, we found that con vention of Intelligent men and women using political methods which tho worst ward "heelers" have discarded lonr nco. The counting showed pretty much the ring" sldedness of the vote, and when the count was about half over I moved that the "high five" be the delegates to the convention, and the farce stopped, and for this movo I apologised to our worthy superintendent, as I did not know I had inade n move against him. The second step! Ever' time a superin tendent or teacher dares to raise a hand against this ruling power he Is taken In hand by some one and honeyed enough to make him feel better or Is taken over entirely If his position Justifies It, ami my case was no exception to the rule. The following general session, in the evening, gave them the opportunity. While sitting In the auditorium with others teachers waiting for th exercises to begin. Superintendent Graham came and asked tne, "Are you one of the boys?" I replied, a far aa I know I J was one of the boys. Then he Informed ! me that he would need me later on. The announcement was made that the follow ing were appointed tellers and asked to come to the platform: Bodwell of flea trice, Maya of Lincoln, two other men of the same professional standing whose namea I have forgotten, and Stewart of Sterling. Now, it waa quite an honor, I'll admit, for one of my caliber to be lined up besides the prominent men of the state. I Have studied Mr. Graham's question time and again and I e no other Interpretation of It than that the 'Invisible government" were trying to sweeten me for what I said In the after noon at the First district meeting. On returning to the hotel after the general session, I was Informed by a friend that i inn oeen noonouDing with the wrong gang during tho day. Yes, I had met A O. Thorns. Frank Plfgex and a few o'h ers. Waa there anything unusual In thts particular action of my friend? VThe in surgent part of the Nebraska teashers term him th paid lackey ot the "ring." Do I need to add two and two to get the result? The next step In the move came on' the announcement of the stuffing of the en rolling list. The boys' conference waa In session at Beatrice, and several superin tendents ot southeastern Nebrtska talked the matter over and held an experience meeting, giving several actions of this most famous invisible government, and agreed to stand and fight for principle, ,"tters were Issued, asking those vhom we though to be all right to atttnd a meeting at Lincoln. Superintendent Kuster of Johnson county, and I, sent out these letters. Kus ter writing the county superintendents. At the Beatrice conference we thought best not to connect the state superinten dent (every man considered himself a personal friend of Deliell and worked for his recent election), with the move until It had been formulated, eo we could ns'l , his support A slight mistake was made when the letter waa sent to County Superintendent Jackson, who carried It to the state superintendent's office. Knowing that the atate department had cognizance of the meeting, and. In the way they did, the gathering superinten dents expected and were on the lookout for representatives of the ring. We were not disappointed, for two gentlemen, on from Fremont and the other from Bea trice, came to the Llndell hotel. These two gentlemen being attaches of the state superintendent' office, had a right to be In Lincoln. They were, aa they an nounced, attending to public business. The conduct of these gentlemen gave them away. One. especially, made a de mand on me to know what I was doing In Lincoln. The first demand not being an wered to his satisfaction, he came to m the second time In this way: "Stewart, what are you doing In Lincoln, anyway?" On this request I Informed the sentljman that I was In Lincoln to attend a meet ing. The next morning Superintendent Clark of Pawnee City, and I met the two gentlemen as they were leaving the din ing room. They seemed to lie badly worked up over the fact that there had been a meeting of Nebraska teachers and that they had not been Invltod. They made the plea that they had been teach ers of Nebraska for a number of years and could not see any legitimate reason why they should be slighted In a meeting jik tnis one. superintendent Clark In formed the gentlemen In a few well chosen words that their color did not look good and they were not of the class or men wanted to advance our cause. The meeting of the superintendents (twenty In number) that night at the i.inaeu notei terminated dirrerently than most of the superintendent ex pected. It resulted In a plan to bolter our condition, to condemn any action that tended toward "ring rule," to make a fight for no one or aealnst anv one. The keynoto of the meeting was, "That proiessionai efficiency should be the sole Standard for employment, asals-nment promotion, demotion, dismissal and re lease ot teachers. That the right ot every teacher from the humblest to the highest hould be equally recognized." It was heralded from one end of the state to the other that this waa an or ganization ODDOSed to tha Rial. Tu)ian' association, a Thomas organization, an organization ror the benefit of Lincoln, or an organization for the benefit of Omaha Just a the case might help their cause. The report came out from the state superintendent' office that It waa a Thomas organization for the reason that Kuster of Johnson county did not havo enough brains to get ur such a letter as the one giving the Invitation to attend the meeting. Superintendent Dalzell op posed the organization at thl time, but since then changed his mind. The or ganization knowing Just what It was doing Invited the state superintendent's office for the second meeting and n. C, King attonded. Why should we consult the state department If we felt It our duty to organize for mutual benefit? From history we get It that the School master' club did not. During the session of the last legists ture some of the county superintendents asked that a law be passed for the re-Issuing- of county certificates. The hear ing before the legislative committee waa held In' the state superintendent's office with our present superintendent at one end of the table, and hack of him a unmber of educators, whose name do not epell "Insurgehcy" In any senso ot the word, opposing a law written in plain simple English saying Just how a county certificate should be Issued. Even' teacher could understand this law. Under this law a county superintendent would not have to write In to the state superintendent to find out If the cer tificate was relssuable. In passing we will state that this law originated tn Johnson county and that If the state superintendent's office will come down with their fine comb they may find more brains In Johnson county teachers than they are aware of. At the hearing before the legislative committee fact were brought that a city certificate had been Issued to get support for tho city certificate measure; that emergency certificates had run for a period of two year. (These thing do not happen during the present adminis tration with due credit to our alinrln. tendent). The fate of thl bill had been decided before the hearing, but we went through ao it though it had not and met Indefinite postponement before the com mittee, but was placed on the general file the next day In the house, only to loee out In the final rush of business at the close of the session. This bring us to the late session ot the Teachers' association. The Thomas dismissal had started a burnt nir flr nil oyer the state against the normal board " me tew wno had fought silently dur Ing the year for our orlnelDle rnt hnav in order to accomnllsh and brine- hsu the moral effect desired and succeeded. The president of the association, was asked to give U feDreaentatlon nrf ,h resolution .committee after being Informed of our Intentions, and after having had the matter under advisement for almost an hour handed Superintendent Moritz the resolution In order that the insur gents might consider tt and know if it were to their llklnr.

There waa no personal reflection In It at all. It waa directed at the Invisible caused him to voto against Mr. Thomar He Informed me that he had written Thomas a week before the action came that he had stood between Thomas and trouble for the last two years. Who was It that demanded Thomas' resignation or dismissal? I am positively certain that ala not- am just a certain that the people of Kearney, those wh ar- mn.. interested Jo the school, did not. for they have spoken. I am more positively cer tain that the student body did not, for men ana women composing that student body shed tear on account of It. Then who In the name of heaven aa h . . It?

Did they stand firm for the asieement? Yes, the president ruled one man out or order, saying he wa going to live up to the agreement, but put the question of the next mover to lay nn the tabic. The president knew that he did not dare to give the teachers an affirmative Vote on the resolution. livery member preeent felt the pulse of that hndy beat when It was read. There waa not an insurgent present but what felt that a great victory hsd been won for principles and the moral side of educa tion. In oloslng.
