A resolution commendatory of Mr. Dick's

Mr. Hanna stated that the personnel
of an advisory committee was under con

the old National Committee of 1896 re

Cleveland, by Chairman Hanna, and re
quested to attend a meeting of the Exec

"Here the subject was renewed by all

in such a personal and earnest manner
that I consented to undertake the work.”

conversation with the President yesterday

It is expected that the Chicago headquar

The committee, after considerable dis

bureaus during the coming campaign. In

German and women's bureaus, were oper

The Company's Manager Declares
He Broke No Agreement.
St. Louis, July 13.—General Manager G.
W. Baumhoff of the St. Louis Transit
Company- gave out a signed statement to
day in reply to the published charges
made by the strikers, in which the latter
charged that Baumhoff had violated the
agreement entered into on July 2.
Mr. Baumhoff denies that he violated in
the slightest degree the agreement be
tween the strikers' committee and the
Transit Company. He says he has strict
ly adhered to that agreement and endeav
oied to fairly with the strikers at all
times The general manager's statement,
which is a very lengthy one, is a denial
of all charges made by the strikers against
him. The statement closes as follows:
'Had the present organization been
conducted in the interests of the street
rai.way employes instead of for the ben
efit of a few imported, self-chosin leaders,
there would have been no strike, and all
the differences existing between the com-

He Received nn Invitation to the G.
A, R Eiicnmpment.
Chicago. July 13.—Regarding reports that
the Grand Army encampment is to have
a political aspect. Executive Director Har
per said to-night:
"There Is absolutely no politics in the
coming national encampment. Never in
the history of this organization has there
been an annual encampment to which the
President of the United States has not
been invited as the chief executive officer
of the nation. We naturally follow the
precedent established in this matter. Pres
ident McKinley, however, is also the most
distinguished comrade of the G. A. R. He
is not to be the only special guest of
Chicago and the encampment. The
list of prominent men whom we have ask
ed tocometoChicagonumbersnearly twen
ty-five. When the formal notification was
sent by John C. Black, chairman of the
Committee on Invitations, to President
McKinley, a similar invitation was for
warded to W. J. Bryan. The President has
accepted. Mr. Bryan almost immediately
acknowledged the receipt of the invita
tion, but did not give us a definite reply.
We want him here at the time of the en
campment and will certainly extend to
him every courtesy in our power.
“There isno politics in this encampment
—all we want is an immense crowd in
Chicago to welcome and honor the survi
vors of the Civil War.”

like a thing of life, “The engine that I laid

"The Status of Public School Educa

beliefs and practices which tend most
pow'crfully to advance the cause of popu

ihirty-ninth annual meeting, makes this
declaration of principles:
"The common school Is the highest
hope of the nation. In developing char
acter, In training intelligence, in dlfTusng
information, its influence is Incalculable.
In last resort the common school rests,
not upon statutory support, bpt upon the
convictions and affections of the Ameri
can people. It seeks not to east *he
youth of the country In a common mould,
but rather to afford free play for indi
viduality and for local needs nnd aims,
while keeping steadily In view the com
mon purpose of all education. In this re
spect It conforms to our political Ideals
and to our poßt'.cal organization, which

nation, wherein each locality must bear

"A democracy provides for the educa
tion of nil its children. To regard the
common schools as schools for the unfor
tunate, and the less well to do. nnd to
treat them ns such, is to strike a fatal
blow at their efficiency nnd democratic
institutions; it is to build up elfiss dis
tinctions whl<h have no proper plnce on
American soli. The purpose of the Amer
ican common school is to attract and to
Instruct the rich, ae well as to provide
for, and to educate the poor. Within Ha

"The provisions of law for the civil
government of Porto Rico indicate that
1( is the intention of tho Congress of the
United States to Increase the responsi
bilities of the Bureau of Bclv.-
cation. Wo earnestly urge upon th*
Congress (he wisdom and advisability of
reorganizing the bureau of education upon
broader lines; of erecting it into an Inde
pendent department on n plane with thf*
deportment of labor; of providing a proper
compensation for the commissioner of ed
ucation. and of so const Muting the depart
ment of education that, while Its invalu
able function of collating and diffusing in
formation bo In no wise impoired, It may
be equipped to exer< is. effective oversight
of the educational systems of Alaska and
of the several Islands now dependent upon
us, as well as to make some provision for
the eduction of the children of the tens
of thousands of white people domiciled in
tho Indian Territory, but who are without
nny educational opportunities whatever.
"Such reorganization of the bureau of
education and such extension of its func
tions we bellow to be demanded by the
highest Interests of the people of tha
United States, and we respectfully, but
earnestly, ask the Congress to innke pro
vision for such reorganization and exten
sion at (heir next session The action so
strongly recommended will in no respect
contravene the principle tlwt it is one of
the recogniz* and functions of tin national
government to encourage and to aid. but
not to lOntrol, the educational instrumen
talities of the country.
"We note with antisfaetton the rapid
extension of provision for adequate sec
ondary and higher education, as w’ell n
for technical, industrial and commercial
training. National prosperity and our
economic welfare in the years to romp
will depend in no small measure upon the
trained skill of our people, as well ns
upon their inventiveness, their persist
ence and their general information.
"Every safeguard thrown about Ihe pro
fession of teaching, and every provision
for its proper compensation, has our cor
dial approval. Proper standards—both
general nnd professional—for eirtrnnee
upon the work of instruction, security of
tenure, decent salaries, and a systematic
pension system are indispensable if the
schools are to attract and to hold the ser
vice of (he best men and women of the
United States; and the nation can afford
to place its children in the care of none
bust the best.
"We welcome the tendency on the part
of colleges and scientific schools to co
operate in formulating and In administer
ing the requirements for admission to
their several courses of instruction, nnd
we rejoice that his association has con
sistently thrown its influence in favor of
this policy, and has indicated how\ in our
judgment, it may best l** entered upon.
We see in this movement n most import
ant step toward lightening the burdens
which now rest upon so many secondary
schools nnd are confident that only good
results wdll follow’ its success.
"The efficiency of a school eyrttem Is to
he judged by the character and the intel
lectual power of Its pupils, and not by
(heir Ability to meet a series of technical
jests. The place of the formal examina
tion In education is distinctly subordinate
to that of teaching, and its use as the
sole test of teaching is unjustifiable.
"We renew our pledge to carry on the
work of education entrusted lo ua in a
spirit which shall lx* not only non-s*cta
rian nnd non-political, but which shall ac
cord with the highest ideals of our na
tional life and, character. With the con
tinued and effective support of public
opinion and of the preoa for the work
of the schools, higher and lower alike, we
shall enter upon the new century with the
high hope born of successful experience,
nnd of perfect confidence in American pol
icies and institutions."
