A Plea for It hj- the President of the
EUGENE, Jan. 12, 1S95. (To the Editor.)
With your permission I -wish to say a
few words in opposition to the editorial
headed "A Timely Recall," -which ap
peared' In The Oregonian of January 9.
In the first place, I wish to express sur
prise that you should adopt and publish
a set of views which will bring our state
into contempt throughout the civilized
world. There is no civilized nation and
few savage ones which do not support
the higher education. The universities in
France, Germany, England, Holland and
Russia have been endowed by the state.
The same is true of the universities of the
semi-savage nations of South. America.
In our own country the states which have
progressed most rapidly In material
wealth and In population are those which
have supported the higher education most
liberally from the public purse. I need
not mention them all; it "will be sufficient
to refer to such examples as Minnesota,
Ohio (which has three state universities);
Michigan, -whose state university has
more students than Harvard; Wisconsin,
Illinois, Missouri and California. Each
of these states spends yearly on its state
university many times as much as Ore
gon. The state of Washington, notwith
standing the hard times, is making great
additions to its university and its normal
schools, as well as its agricultural col
lege. A similar fact Is true of Idaho.
Oregon alone among civilized states and
nations seems ready to stamp out the
The Oregonian has been inviting im
migrants from states further East; from
states which, without exception, provide
facilities for free higher education. It
says to those people, "Leave your schools
and colleges and come to a state where
the principal newspaper cherishes a viru
lent hatred for all that you cherish, and
where that paper hopes to induce the
people to destroy the feeble beginnings
of culture." The people whom you are
Inviting will not come. It may surprise
you, but those people think more of
their souls and the minds of their chil
dren than they do of fertile fields and
mines of gold. They -will not come to
Oregon; they -will stop In Washington
and Idaho, where education is held in
May I suggest that your editorial will do
more to bring Oregon into disgrace in the
minds of Intelligent people than all the
performance of Governor Pennoyer. You
are advocating theories which the uni
versal experience of mankind has proved
to be false, and your tone is one of such
assured dogmatism that it cannot seem
otherwise than ludicrous to people who
really know the history of education in
our own country and elsewhere. From
the governor people have come to expect
bizarre expressions formulated without
reference to fact or reason, and his power
to disgrace the state has terminated with
his political reign. Your power is not
likely soon to terminate, and you can do
all the more harm to the state abroad
because The Oregonian will be accepted
as the Index of what is highest and best
here. If Its tone Is low and Its leadership
la, downward, such will be considered the
condition of everything In 'the state. Sen
sible and moral people will keep away
The motive which induced the Salem
Committee of One Hundred to adopt their
disgraceful set of resolutions Is sufficient
ly evident; if the one first proposed, de
manding simple economy in the state
schools, had been adopted, no one could
have complained. State schools ought to
be administered economically. There is
no more excuse for administering a school
in a careless manner than there is for a
banker neglecting his affairs; but this
committee was not satisfied to demand
economy, to which no sensible person
can object; It will be satisfied only with
complete destruction. To give tone to
their barbarous demand, they precede it
with a statement of a theory which de
fies reason and experience and which Her
bert Spencer, its modern stepfather, would
no longer care to defend. The motive of
the Salem people is probably to destroy
all state institutions not in their own city.
This is natural, and justifies the name
which some of the looser country papers
apply to our beautiful capital. What sur
prises me is to see your paper holding
up the qualities of the unmelodious porker
for public laudation and imitation.
You say that the public educational es
tablishment In Oregon is overgrown.
This isnot true. Compared with such estab
lishments in more progressive states our
educational system is but a feeble be
ginning; its organization is weak; its
methods lack vigor and adequate purpose;
its support is insufficient; it has little co
ordination. Your statement that it is
overgrown is so far from true that it is
ludicrous. There may be an educational
machine in this state, as you say. If
there is, I hope you will succeed In ex
posing its misdeeds and stamping it out
forever. I hope, however, you will not
rest when that good deed is done, but
that your eyes will be opened to the ex
istence of some other quite as obvious
machines which seem hitherto to have
escaped your notice.
In your remarks you do not discrimi
nate clearly between the case of the uni
versity and the alleged misdeeds of the
American Book Company in corrupting
those who select the state books. About
the American Book Company I know
nothing and care nothing; but per
mit me to say that by making the
cause of the state university one
with that of this corporation, as you
do in your editorial, you do us a great and
irreparable injustice. We have nothing
to do with the state school books, whether
selected honestly or dishonestly; and we
have nothing to do with electing members
of the legislature and senators. This in
stitution is not in politics; and as Its
representative on the educational side I
wish to protest in the name of truth and
justice against the great wrong you do
us in dragging our good name into affairs
of this kind. Abuse us all you like, but
please abuse us by ourselves. It Is easy
to find out our record, and if we have
done the thing which you Impliedly
charge us with, you ought to be able to
Your statement that the university of
Oregon exists for a favored few is false.
Our doors are open to all the inhabitants
of the state, and they are daily taking ad
vantage of our opportunities in greater
numbers. If we charged tuition we should
then exist for a favored few, namely, the
rich, who could pay our fees. We now
work for rich and poor alike, and such
learning and culture as our teachers have
to give is poured out with a liberal band
to all. Moreover, we have not waited for
the people of the state to come to us,
but we have sat up nights to do our work
here that we might go abroad and carry
the message of culture to all who would
listen. You do us a wrong in saying that
this institution reaches and benefits only
a limited public.
You say that the state owes no man
an education. That Is true; bet the state
seeds educated men, and they are worth
all they cost, and many times more. The
Oregonian lias spoken lately with same
fuvor of measures looking to the increase
of the United States army. The causes
which make an army necessary In this
country are due to ignorance; but you
would apparently prefer to pay for sol
diers to shoot down the ignorant man
rather than for schools to educate him.
Tastes differ, and it is useless to dispute
about them; but I think that education is
cheaper and more effective in the long run
than guns. Every properly educated man
is a tower of safety to the state, worth
many times as much as an army officer,
while it costs much less to produce him.
Moreover, the people have a right to use
the machinery of the state to get for
themselves cheap and thorough educa
tion; the state exists for the benefit of the
citizens, and they have a right to make
any honest use of its machinery which
they choose. Still further, in this coun
try it is the majority of the citizens that
must in all cases decide to what use the
machinery of the state shall be put, and
the minority are wrong to complain so long
as the use is not immoral; much more are
they wrong when the use is highly moral
and for the manifest benefit of all.
CHARLES H. CHAPMAN.
Mr. Chapman is president of the state
university. He is a man of a single idea,
of one purpose or hobby; he thinks if his
right to be supported by public taxation;
he knows nothing of industry or business,
evidently thinks it just to tax to the
uttermost the few for the benefit of the
many, and his argument that the people
have the right to use the machinery, tha$
is, the taxpaying industry and property
of the state, to get cheap and thorough
education would apply as well to obtain
ment of shoes and bread. The Oregonian
may say to President Chapman that it
knows something about Oregon, some
thing about how the state was made; how
young persons of sturdy character may
get theirown education; and It does not be
lieve it necessary for them to lean on
the state. To The Oregonian the argu
ment or appeal of state parasites Is by no
means conclusive, and is not strengthened
by citing the example of other states,
where increasing multitudes, hampered by
the ideas that appear in the above letter,
are becoming too worthless to support
themselves. We want no dependent
classes to come to Oregon, no milksops
who expect to be supported by the state.
Why should that particular college at
Eugene be a beggar? There are as good
ones elsewhere in Oregon that are not
a public charge. That the plea of mendic
ity need not be put up for our youth, and,
that in fact it is an insult to their in
telligence and spirit, is proven by the ex
ample of those who, in the past, have
made, and of those who are still making
their own way in higher learning. The
system for which President Chapman con
tends spreads the notion of personal de
pendence and of individual helplessness,
than which nothing can be more ruinous
to a people, and the argument is not made
more convincing by citing the example of
other states, where this has been so
greatly overdone and bears Its legitimate
THE SCHOOL BOOKS.
A Protest Against the Iniquity of the
Recent Proceedings in. Oregon.
PORTLAND, Or.,Jan. 12. (To the Edi
tor.) On August 22, 1834, "by direction
of the state board of education and in
compliance with the school 'laws of the
state of Oregon of February 25, 1SS3, and
February 21, 1S93," publishers of school
text-books were requested to submit pro
posals to furnish text-books for the six
years subsequent to October 1, 1S95, and to
send sample cbples of' same to the board
of state examiners and to the several
county school superintendents.
It is but fair to infer that the intent and
purpose of the law was to be fully com
plied with on the part of the said state
board of education, and said state board
of examiners and the several county
superintendents, to the end that pupils In
public schools of your state should be
supplied with the latest and best text
books published. No one will deny the
right of the pupils in the schools of Ore
gon to the best text-books, and yet the
action of a majority of your state board
of examiners and of your county super
intendents is manifestly in the interest
of the American Book Company, and not
that of the people.
No one will presume to say the text
books now in use, and readopted by this
ballot, are the best, or that they will cost
thepeople less money. The American Book
Company has for months Industriously
circulated statements to the effect that a
change would Impose a large cost, ad
ditional, upon the people. Whereas, the
fact Is, pupils can have, at the exchange
prices offered, not only new, but better
books, for less money. It is the duty of
your state superintendent of public in
struction to know something of what per
tains and leads to good pedagogics, yet
the present superintendent so far forgets
his honor as a citizen as to engage active
ly in the promotion of those Interests
which tend to the corruption of your state
system of education; yes, even to the dis
honor of his high office, for we hold as an
indisputable fact that no man can be an
honest, loyal citizen of your state and
give any support to the dishonorable
methods of the American Book Company.
All its business career has been one con
tinued defilement of civic morality.
Look upon Its record in your own state,
in California, Washington, West Virginia,
also Alabama, where its peculiar methods
are now being investigated by a legisla
tive committee. That Superintendent Mc
Elroy and Professors Hawthorne, Horner,
Ackerman, Reld, Rigler and others did not
or do not know the error" of their course
in promoting the interests of the Amer
ican Book Campany is not for one in
stant to be credited by any sane person.
It would appear the publishing houses
were invited to present bids in compliance
with the law, but results would seem to
indicate it was a blind. They sent their
bids in good faith and some thousands
of dollars worth of text-bock samples
to the state board of examiners and
county school superintendents, and have
cheerfully borne the legitimate expenses
of sending representatives to see each of
those men but not to buy them with
stacks of twenty-dollar gold pieces;
offers of clerkships: nor with promises of
situations in the public schools of Port
land, as A. B. C. Wetzell did; nor yet, by
sending principals of schools into teach
ers' institutes, under pay, to do the bidding
of the American Book Company; nor
by sending the state superintendent o
public instruction to reason with doubtful
ones; nor by threats of no re-election.
We have made a gallant fight to redeem
your state educational system from the
clutches of the vampire, which is sucking
the life-blood from the veins of your civil
We have done our duty. It remains now
for your citizens to demand the execution
of the text-book law. which provides ex
plicitly for such conditions as now ex
ist. The power is conferred upon your
state board of education, consisting of the
governor, secretary of state and superin
tendent of public instruction, to order
another ballot. Good citizens in other
states are watching anxiously for your
action to purge the record in Oregon.
If another ballot Is ordered, the ques
tion will arise among the people. Why 5s
Id done? The reply Is obvious: Your
state board of examiners and your sev
eral county superintendents did not" do
their duty and provide your pupils with
good text-books. We defy one of them to
give a rational excuse for voting for
Monteith's geography, or Maxwell's ;rram-
mar or Steele's physiolosy. Think yen 1
they dare to repeat the dance to the
crack of the A. B. C whip? No I the people
will be aroused this time, and demand
every change possible to rid the state of
that incubus now astride its neck and
riding it to destruction.
No interests but those of the people can
be successfully maintained for any length
of time. We venture to predict that in
the near future those men who have so
far forgotten their' duty as citizens, their
honor as men, and voted to continue and
extend the evil power of the American
Book Company, will be buried so deeply
as never to rise again.

That "a life cannot hide Itself came
home with terrible force to those men,
and when it is shown, as it will be, that
certain ones in this state sold their herit
age for a mess of pottage and robbed
the little children of their just rights,
then will they, too, read the handwriting
on the wall, "A life cannot hide itself."
We do not express these thoughts as
philanthropists,' but as business men who
have been deprived of the just return for
our labor, because of the flagrant abuse
of the rights of the people.
We close by an extract from the re
marks of the speaker of the West Vir
ginia house of delegates, in reprimanding
George A. Howard, agent of the American
Book Company, for bribery. (Howard is
still in their employ): "If there is one
thing necessary to the safety of our in
stitutions, it is that of keeping them pure
and undefiled In every particular. Their
corruption is their destruction.
"It would be an evil day, indeed, when
in places of the highest concernment, the
due execution of the trusts imposed upon
those whom the people have preferred to
guard their welfare, and happiness should
depend, not so much upon their ability to
serve as upon the ability of others to
buy their services."
JOHN E. POTTER & CO.,
READY FOR THE CHANGE
New Officers Prepared to Take Their
Places in Clarlic.
VANCOUVER, Wash., Jan. 12. The of
ficial bond of each of the new county of
ficers and their deputies has been accept
ed and placed on file. The new officers,
who will assume their duties next Mon
day, are as follows:
James Waggener, jr., county treasurer;
John Miller, sheriff; W. W. McCredle,
county attorney; Dan Crowley, clerk; I.
N. Lafferty, superintendent of schools;
Martin Rapp, surveyor; A. M. Blaker, as
sessor; Charles Rood and T. Ward, county
commissioners, and Dr. J. M. Burt, cor
oner. Of the old corps of officers, there
are: Auditor S. Goodnight, who was re
elected; Judge A. L. Miller, appointed to
fill out the unexpired term of Judge AVis
wall, and elected over two competitors,
and County Commissioner S. S. Campbell,
who is a holdover. The political complex
ion of the county officials is republican,
with the exceptions of the auditor, dem.,
and Commissioner Campbell, dem., and
Commisisoner Ward, pop. The retiring
board of county commissioners has held a
very busy session during the past 10 days;
yet a number of important matters will
have to be referred to the new board. Con
siderable time was taken up early in the
session by the investigation of the "print
ers' combine," instituted by County At
torney Bowles. The Investigation has
created quite a sensation throughout the
county and city, and it is quite probable
the end is notyet,,, to any means. The
city council is understood o be seriously
contemplating the employment of an ex
pert to go through the files of the Colum
bian, which has the contract for doing the
city printing, as well as that of the coun
ty, and make an investigation as to
whether the work has been done in con
formity with the contract, and it is inti
mated that the same course will probably
be taken by the new board of county com
missioners. It was shown at the investi
gation that the Independent, under the
present management, was in no way in
terested in the combine. Many of the
populist friends of Mr. Daniels, whose
paper, the Register, is the people's party
organ of the county, are expressing great
surprise over that gentleman's connection
with the combine, in the light of the op
position taken by his paper, editorially,
derogatory to trusts, monopolies and com
bines of all descriptions. The Register
and Columbian, in their issues this week,
made explanations of their positions in
relation to the combination,

thank our friends for their kind patronage,
and take pride in stating that our trade,
since removing to qur new store, corner
Third and Oak streets, has been far ahead
of our most sanguine expectations. It
proves that the public appreciates honest
values and fair dealing. Our aim has
been and will be to give good, reliable
clothing at reasonable prices. We are
making at our mill in Albany lines of
neat, desirable patterns in cheviots, cassi
meres and tweeds for spring and summer
trade. We have also placed our advance
orders for the latest effects in imported
fabrics. These, as well as our own make
of goods, will be made in regular, short
and stout, long and slim, and extra sizes,
enabling us to fit any one. Our country
order trade by samples has increased so
that we were obliged to open a separate
department for same, and we send sam
ples and cuts of all lines, with plain rules
for measurement, free to any address.
This coming season we intend to devote
more attention to our boys' and children's
department, and shall carry full lines of
noveltlos and staples. Our uniform de
partment has been a great success. We
equipped the Oregon National Guard, Port
land military band, Oregon Soldiers'
Home, American District Telegraph Com
pany, Pacific Postal Telegraph Company,
reform school, LTnited States lifesaving
service and many others. We are pre
pared to submit bids for uniforms for any
organization, as our electric factory is
complete in every respect. We employ
white labor at both factory and mill, and
the money paid us for clothing remains
on the coast. '
To make room for our spring stock, we
have decided to allow a discount of 10 per
cent on every article in our stock, includ
ing fcur lines of Stein-Bloch Co.'s blue
and black extra-long kersey overcoats,
which were delayed in transit. As our
prices were reasonable before the cut.
an extraordinary .opportunity Is offered
for a short time. For the same reason we
offer in our custom-tailoring department
to make suits to order in cheviots, tweeds
and cassimeres for $18, and pants for $1 60.
