A HOME FOR TEACHERS.
The Columbia State, ask why
not a home for teachers? This
sounds pertiment, anditmaybe
materialy expatiated upon with
out exausting interest in the
subject. While it would be nice
if each teacher had a home to
which they could go, whenever
they became phisicaly unable to
longer follow their vocations, it
would be all right, and a discus
sion of this matter would be
‘useless, but such is not the case.
There are hundreds of teach
ers in North Carolina, who
qualified themselves to teach at
great personal sacrafices and
they have kept on teaching at
great financial sacrafice. They
have been unable to lay up any
money for a rainy day, or a
home, and as times goes on they
will be getting older, and some
of these days they must drop
entirely out of the ranks as
teachers, then as dependants
who will care for them? It seems
to us without going just now in
to further details of this matter,
that it would be a most excelent
thing to provide a home for old
and feeble teachers. There is
scarcely a class of people in ex-
existance to day who are doing
a nobler work, a more self sacra-
ficing works. They, are giving

.bribery Becomes Positive

It is only a few years since a dis-
tipjgiaished ^American public man cyni-
:^ly refesri^to bribery as a “conven-
tidniil crifne.” It waa-and is-but it
is getting to be mighty bad form when
you are csK^ht at it, and, what is still
more exaltp^ating t6 enterprising gen
tlemen With “conventional” piorals,
it is getting to be almost dangerous.
There are two statutes which have
most intimate concern with public
morality, that are almost dead letters
on the statute books of this country—
State and Federal. One is directed
against perjury, the other against

there will be more honesty. Men
nowadays have more fear of jail than
of hell. The laws should accomodate
themselves to conditions. The peni
tentiary can b« made exceedingly con
crete and effective as a preventive of
perjury, even if the fear of divine
wrath has departed from many hearts.
Bribery and perjury are very inti
mately related. The public official
who receives a bribe necessarily per

Qlve A Square Deal To
Representative Prince of Illinois,
standpat Republican, in a speech on
reciprocity and the free liat bill, said:
What is the hintory of the American
people? Americans went into Texas,
Americanized it, and it was annexed.
Americans went into Hawaii, Ameri
canized it. and annexed it. * • *
Speaker Clark said he is in favor of
taking Canada, and that this reciprocity
arrangement is the first step toward
annexation. I say to my neighbors on
the ‘North, ’‘Be not deceiv^ When
we get into a country and get control
of i^ we take it; that i» our history,
and it is right we should take it if we
want it, and we might as well under
There is the sort of srgument best
calculated to kill reciprocity. To kill it,
not in Congress, which will appraise
such silly talk at its true value, but to
kill it in the Dominion parliament,
which cannot be expected to sift out
demagogy and insincerity of this kind
from the expressions which state the
real sentiment of the American people
Such a declaration as that of
Prince can be intended only for
nadian consumption. It can have
one purpose; to arouse prejudice
unwarranted fears in Canada. It
resents the cheapest, the most
.honest, the most insincere and coward
ly method of meeting an issue. It does j
not meet the issue; it sets up a bogie |
demon of straw, and invites Canada to |
contemplate its prospect of being
devoured by the monster. And Canada
is far enough away to be unable to
discern the difference between a prop
erty monster of the political stage and
a real one running wild in search of
whatsoever it may devonr.
However earnestly men like Mr.
Prince may believe reciprocity a bad
thing for tote countries, they will gain
nothing by resort to such buncombe
as this. The people of both countries
are too intelligent to be misled.
The political faction to which Mr.
Prince belongs is right now in [a period
of obscuration, chiefly because it' hai
too lon^ relied upon the conviction that
the people can be fooled all the time.
They cannot; and they will find occa-
aion to rebuke such cheap and nasty
politics as this Prince cpeech.—Wash
ington Times. .
