foreign relations providing for the inspection of meats for prohibiting the importation of adulterated articles of food or drink and authorizing the presi dent tn make proclamation in certain oases and for other was taken from tkui Manderson suggested that one trouble in connection with the exporta tion of meat products was the principal requirements of the foreign countries and he nuked Sherman whether there was anything in the bill that could remedy that Sherman said for several years restrictions had been im posed in Germany and Great Britain on the importation of meat The general complaint made in all those countries was that there was no meat inspection laws in the United States such as existed in the European It is believed the passage of the hill would enable the proper author ities of the United States to procure and release various restrictions more or less and woul thereby add at least fifty million pounds to American exportation of buef Bate remarked several bills kin dred to this one were pending before the agricultural committee that it was a matter of vast importance that the prod ing bill was a substitute for the original bill and had only been

Leui March 10 in presenting his lesolution to the senate today relative to government loans on real in part If the farmers were able to borrow from the without a certain amount of its bills giving the farm as se curity to that extent his land would become active in price and he would be whiJe giving employ ment to the extent of the morey loaned to improve his farm and increase its value to the full amount of the Thus the government loan would be doing double The activities of this money do not terminate with its expend iture by the those who have re ceived it in their turn will make use of it at an energizing factor in the force of life to an indefinite In my opinion ample protection would be afforded the government if it limited the loan to onehalf or one quarter of the assessed value of the property given as security and upon an appraisement of government officers especially se lected for that It seems to me the great thought of humanity should be how to advantage the great multitude of increase their power of production and elevate their We know that a great improvement is within the provisions of THI HAWKKTX CAPITOL Dms March The action of the friends of state uni formity of text books on Saturday was a little They chote a very un favorable occasion upon which test the sentiment of the legislature as a whole on the because a great many of the members were absent could not express themselves by vote one way or the Finn and Weidman were the men who tried to bring out the expression by lacking an amendment oa Keglers reso lution providing for a special textbooks The amendment instructed the committee to report a state uniform ity but before it could be voted on finally it waa laid over till this In the Smiths resolution demanded similar instructions to a similar commit tee already It was a singular coincidence of attempted to ssy the and the majority of members are glad it was not successful in carry Many of though in favor of state were not willing to put the matter in that form in conse were in favor of the postpone It might be well for the advo cates of that policy to not be too hasty providence and in the prosperity of the masses the prosperity of all is One of the more effective means of dis posal of the forces inherent in the value of property is in thoroughly furnishing a bountiful supply of money based upon unquestioned and secure THK FAlB U by Special March 10 special house subcommittee on the worlds fair held another conference with the visit ing Chicago delegation and com pleted a bill which will be presented to the full committee soon as the chair man can call it The changes made in the bill are few and the princi ples of the original bill are closely ad hered The provision for a national composed of two members from each has been but an amendment has been added provid ing that the commissioners shall be di vided equally between the two political The government commissioners ate to have control of the the ap pointment of the distribution of but the Illinois corporation which is recognized in the is to in their or their weak points will be uncovered and their opponents given a decided More than one member has been investigating the but not all have arrived at a conclusion as and a hasty movement will bring about eudden aad perhaps erroneous the lesult of it all beinjj unwise legislation and consequent misery in the matter of managing schools and Before deciding on a definite course to pursue in regard to text books our legis lators should fully understand the merits of the systems proposed for furnishing books There are three distinct lines and gradations between them along primary object with them was ta lesson the cost but as pair of the coat was paid in taxes it was not in reality Indiana people are not satisfied with their law aod want it Wiscon son had such a law recommended by a commission but failed to pass This is the record of state uniformity in The other remedy sought from the op pressiveness of school book trusts ii free text This ia a plan endorsed by and in practical operation in Vermont New Hew York Wisconsin and other Free text books do not prevent state but it does prevent the evila arising Free text with each district having option of choice in the is what many re eard as the true solution of the Its advantages have bf en stated many but I can repeat them The plan would place the burden of buying books upon all not on parents but on single persons owning as well it would enable school work to begin promdtiy at the commencement of each term it would teach children to have re gard for public property it would de crease the cost of books it would give greater choice in selecting books for dif ferent and allow city schools to have what was necessary and country schools what was One gnat argument in favor of state uniformity would done with by free The class of poor people moving about the state would not be compelled to buy new books every time they made a move under either and under the lat latter they would not have to buy any to start The advantages of free text books only need to be mentioned to be recognized as and when it is added that in every case where it has been tried the plan has been a success we can add no stronger argument in its It is interesting to know how the school boob lobby stands on the At times it looks as if there were only two and in reality that is the There are two trusts really controlling the school boards business and bath have their representatives at One DEAD JEWESS FODID TEUUBLY IUTI LHED M BEI Shrefc

cost state with the books selected or edited by a printed at the expense of the state and sold to State uniformity is now the law in Indiana aad Cali but the Indiana law was recently declared unconstitutional on the ground that it granted a monopoly to an individ ual hence U now a dead School books should be printed in the best possible and the samples we nave seen which are used under a state uniformity contract system are not such as are Those from Cali fornia are not much but here there is the disadvantageous fact that the books themselves furnished by the state at leas than The trouble about the state printing the books is the tremendous cost of a plant that will turn out first class The ma chinery and tools there cost about and yet they were able only to pub lish books of the plainest nature Nothing like a geography or a scientific work can be turned and yet a very large and in some respects complete office has been fitted up for But the great trouble about state uniformity lies in the fact that one small body of men must select the books for a great number of people as diverse in tastes as can be Now it is reasonable to suppose that a commiasou can select books satisfactory alike to the public schools of Burlington or Eeokuk and to the country schools of Kosscth and OBrien counties If all schools were large and graded the idea might work but the schools are different in different in methods of study and different in length of in fact they are an heterogeneous mass of individuals work ing for the education of the people as a It may be said that state uniformity would break up this condition of things would place the schools on a uniform basis and make everything more tinder ex isting conditions it could not be done State uniformity applied to a country school district would necessitate more complex arrangements than at present ex ist for getting the pupils into proper and place all at a Some would be some behind of the classes into which they were com pelled to But the greatest difficulty would be to establish a standard that would fit the modest country school as well as the best organized city At present the best men of the country are employed to get up text and from the large numbers produced our educators have the opportunty of selling what they think are the We are saying nothing as to price just A teacher being supplied with a text book fully in harmony with his own views can do much more effectve and the system as at present in vogue gives this very State uniformity nar rows the choice down and gives that choice to a few men who very likely know not what every district in the state wants and couldnt satisfy that want if they did know They may stand high in educational but when such distinction is attained it is generally in a special line and thea of course on that specialty he is all The other de would suffer for this very especially the element ary The best persons to choose books for study are those directly connected with the schools of the partic ular locality for which they are and that locality must be very The adoption of state onifomity would cause a great expenditure of money to make the and this would be something of a burden to the It would be hardly fair to ask any com pany to take all the second hand books and give new ones for and if any company would do any such thing ai thata clear throwing away of it would show that it expected to make largely on the contract in the fu The objections against state uni formity can be gg follows 1st It would bring about an inferior grade of books It would be combination favors the state uniformity plan and the adoption of the standard school book series or something like The most powerful composed of the Big Four publishing houses in the is opposed to say change in exist ing All of them are opposed to free text That is tueir position in and that is the way they are None of them can see any ad vantage accruing by reason
