No State can achiere greatnes or
become a power in the development
of her resources if her people are
not provided with proper means for
securing an education.
Money eaa not he invested, with
greater safety, than in "immortal
minds." In affording proper facili
ties for the promotion of education
we make a safe investment that will
pay handsome dividends for all time.
We may erect monuments to perpet
uate the fame and greatness of our
noble citiiens, but there can be no
nobler duty than that of building an
educational system that will "defy

(Continued from First Page.)
Educational progress in the State
has, Indeed, been slow, but it is grat-l time, all of the people some of the
ifying now to see tne revival ol in
terest in the matter in every quarter
of the State.
Dr. Venable, in his report, says
that "the University is emphatically
the hops of the poor boys of thu
State," and that "our one hundred
and twenty five are working their
way through in whole or in Dart."
Indeed the University, in recent
years, has furnished a great oppor
tunity for young men with no means
or with limited means, to get an ed
ucation. and the fact that over 125
are now, by their own efforts, ob
taining an education, speaka volumes
in favor of the present management.
Year by year the enrollment is in
creasing, yet practically the same
appropriation is made now that ws
made when tne Institution had ab iut
half its present enrollment. Tne
fact is the University ot North Caro
lina is today one of the strongest in
stitutions of the South, though it is
doing its great work on the least
capital ot any similar institution in
the whole country.
Dr. Venable nrges that the teach
ing force be increased in order that
more thorough and effeotive work
may be done. This is a reasonable
suggestlen in view ot the fact that
there are more students at the Uni
versity now than eye r before. At
present the classes are too large and
nnwieldly, and it is impossible for a
professor to do his work with that
thoroughness which is so essential
As showing the niggardliness
with which the State deals with its
greatest Institution of learning, we
quote the following from President
Venable's report:
"The State now appropriates $25,
000 annually to the University. Fif
teen years ago the appropriation
with the land grant fund amounted
to 927.000 and there were
time, but you can not fool all the
poople all the time." and this raot
the legislature should bear in mmd.
They cannot cover up their mis
deeds and failures by howling "aig
ger" "nigger" any more for that is
sue is as dead as Julius Oeaar.
The people will be satisfied with
no hing less than an effeotive anti
trust law.
DISGRACEFUL. POLITICS. !
Last week when the resolution
Inviting Dr. Curry, agent of the
Peabody Fund, to address the Leg
islature was pending, a few of the
members of that body arose and
severely assalld Dr. Curry, alleg
ing that he had lobbied with mem
bers of the National House of Rep
resentatives in the Interest of Con
gressman Richmond Pearson's con
test Both Dr. Curry and Mr. Pear
son indignantly denied the charge
and the next day these hot-headed
partisans, feeling keenly the injus
tice done, made apologies publicly
for their bitter, vindictive and par
t.san speeches.
'Tls a pity Indeed that some men
occupying official positions of hon
or, trnst and responsibility, are so
small and narrow-minded that thty
frequently make ugly spectacles of
themselves !
Dr. Curry was not Invited to ad
dress the Legislature on a partisan
subject, but on the great and absor
bing question of public education,
and if his assailants had been gov
erned by any sense of propriety
they would have spared the distin
guished educator such an un war
ran teed, unjust and false attack.
Away with all such narrowmlnd
edness, and llttlenss I
bach conduct was a most dis
graceful exhibition of peanut par
tisan politics. North Carolina can
the conferees has been agreed to by
the House and i now pending in
the Senate, with every prospect that
It will be finally enacted before the
present week has passed.
During the coming week the
IIoumo will be engaged principally
In considering the poet-office and
other appropriation bills. The post
office bill is likely to lead to consid
erable discussion owing to the omis
sion from the bill of the provision
for pneumatic tubes. There is also
a strong effort being made in the
House to press the consideration of
ttie Hill bill, which is designed to
maintain the pari'y between gold
and silver under the existing gold
standard.
Owing to the fact that appropria
tion bills originate in the House of
liepresentatives, the necessary busi
ness of the session of Congress is
probably more advanced in that
body than it is in the Senate. There
is also greater latitude of discus-don
In the Senate, which prevents a dis
position of the public business as ex
peditiously as it is taken care of in
the House. Only two of the great
appropriation bills have been passed
by the Senate. The Indian appro
priation bill Is at present pending in
that body, and will probably be dis
posed of in the next two or three
days.
The bill passed by the House of
Representatives reducing taxation
under the Revenue bill has been re
ported by the Senate Finance Cm
mittee. and Senator Aldrich, chair
man of that committee, has given
notice that he expects the Senate to
take it up at an early day. Tae ship
subsidy bill, tne pet measure of San-
. - a a
ator a anna, is aiso panning in me
Senate, and has the right of way
when appropriation bills are not un
der consideration. This measure,
however, is likely to provoke more
discussion than its friends ever con
templated. The opposition to it is
determined, and the prospects for
its passage are very dim. Saould
those who have it in charge endeav
or to force its consideration, therj is
every probability tht a filibuster
would be instituted against it. Tne
Grout bill in regard to the manufact
ure and sale of oleomargarine, a bill
which commands aluost univt-isal
support in tbe agricultural districts
of the country, is nearly in a condi
tion to be placed before tne Senate,
and no doubt, a strong tffort will be
made to secure its passage, with
good cLaneeS of success It seems
as if the Nicaragua canal proposi
tion will have to give way to other
matters, and go over until the next
session of Congress. Senator Mor
gan, of Alabama, in charge cf this
measure, has made every possible ef
fort to have it become a law. There
is a general opinion, howayer, that
its consideration shonld admit the
action of the British government on
the Hay-Pauncefote treaty, which is
now in the hands of the British cab
inet, and this vu w will in all proba
bility prevail. Tne repo-t of the

It seems to be a part of the ma

The people who pay the taxes to
support these officers may have some

If all the judges faithfully dis

no large dockets to be continued

The ballot-stuffing machine raised
a great "hue and cry" because the
Fasionists increased the number of
magistrates in the Btate. Oa every

offices were created for some "hun

MOXDAY.
Sknate There were no bills of
special importance introduced in the
Senate. The bill that seems to be
of most interest was the one intro
duced by Mr. Warren from Jones to
gressbytbe President, and strong- er of capitol and public buildings I amend the Code in relation to the
ly recommending that steps b j taken
to supersede the military eovern
ment of the islands by a civil gov
ernment, has aroused great interest.
and much speculation is indulged in
as to what action Congress will take
in regard to the matter. Mny think
tnat ii something is not done before
Congress finally adjourns in the line
suggested by the report, an extra
session of Congress will be inevita
ble. It can be stated, however, that
an extra session is not desired by the
administration, and, therefore, some
proposition looking to the establish
ment of a civil government in the
Philippine Islands may be looked
lor during tne present session.
Oa Mondav, February 4'h, the
Senate and House will meet in the
hal of the House of Representa
tives, and exercises commemorative
of the one hundredth anniversary of
the assumption by John Marshall of
the office of Chief Justice of the
United States, will be held. The
president will attend these exarcises,
aad hey will be ver? impressive.
8ome alarm is becoming evident
in Republican circles Owing to the
enormous appropriations which have
ren made by the two sessions of the
56 h Congrets. Cnalrman Cannon,
of te Appropriations Committee of
the House estimates that the appro
priations for the present session will
reach the enormous total of $800.
000,000 The appropriations for the
last session ot the 56;h Congress ag
gregate about the same amount, so
that the total amount appropriated
during the two years will not fall
short of a billion and a half dollar f,
and some even figure that they will
reach the stupendous figure of a bil
lion and three quarter dollars. Tnis
fact is sufficient to arouse tbe fears
of the Republican managers, and a
policy of economy is accordingly be
ing broachfd.
