mxtnr Times:. ... ',
In a. long garrulous article ap-
-oearing in the Times of Feb. 27th,
nnW the caotion "Denman's re-
ply," occur some statements which
.rseem to require further elucidation.
Mr. Denman says, "this sentence
might lead one to infer that the pu
'pia of Philomath had been treated
iiffpntW than other schools."
that idea was certainly in the minds
of the patrons 01 .rmiomatn wnen
trie resolution in Question was adop
ted. Here is one reason for such
WMM-Insinn. Two vears aeo. the
ninninsl nt rair T1iri1it School re-
Hjuested Mr. Denman to appoint an
examining boara at rmiomam, so
tViat rnihilsmichtireceive auick re
turns from theuexaminations. Mr.
Denman granted the request', appar
ently in good .faith, and named
Prof. J. M. Haskins of Philomath
- college, and Mr. J. Weed, chairman
of the board of directors, to act
-with the principal as such board of
vaminers. These men devoted
three days to the 8th grade exam
ination. Prof. Haskins leaving his
classes at the colleee in'other hands
The oater of applicants were all
carefully graded, marked and sent
in KiiTvarinf-pnHent's office." In
stead of accepting these grades and
sending returns prompuy 10 appli
cants, Mr. Denman sent these pa
pers to teachers in various parts of
the countv for re-reading. Why?
A little aver four weeks later. the
principal was informed that two sets
. of papers had been lost ana tne
'trades of same must be "lumped"
at 80 per cent. No reason for hav
ing the papers re-read has ever been
gived. ' '
We understand that pupils at Cor-
-vallis received their grades that
3camA war within a verv few davs
after the examination. It was right
tbat they should, but why should
their papers receive more prompt
attention than those from other
Schools? Mr, Denman further sta
ges, "we will only be to gladtohave
a committee appointed either by
myself or the directors of Philo
math;" but in a letter to the princi
pal he says, "I will appoint such a
committee providing I can, secure
surli a committee in Philomath,

iowr. that there tnav be. among
the score or more of expenencea
teachers iu Philomath, two or three
sufficiently qualified to make up Mr.
Denman's commitee. T.
