FOUR A.l FIIIEU.
Inaugural Address Delivered ly President
1,. I Bnsrro nl llie opening or Aslilnnd
College hCi:omlKT I5IIi, 189.
Near Flounce Rock, a romantic and
" secluded cove in the mountains, far up
Rogue River, there are a number of
settlers located and engaged in farming
and stock raising. Among them is
Chauncy Nye, a Pioneer of Territorial
times. He was born in JIalcorub
county Michigan in 1826, but -when
quite young removed, with his parents
to Pakland county, Indiana, where he
resided until the Spring of 1850 when
he crossed the plains to California.
mined for a short time near Pla-
but being attracted by the
orts from Yreka he visited
in the Spring of 1851 and
ng the Summer of that
year, in me au tie leittne mines ana
went to Salem, Marion county, where
lie established the first bakery, ever
started in that town. He remained
in Salem until the Spring of 1852 at
which time he removed to Jackson
county and engaged in mining on
Jackson creek and rontinued in the
business until the following Summer.
Ho was dieted a member of the Lower
House of the Territorial Legislature
and served during the terms of 1853-4.
He served during the Indian war of
1855 in Capt John F. Miller's
company of volunteers, part of the
time as Orderly Seargent. In 1SC5 he
was married to Amarantha Burt and
the family now consists of himself,
wife and three children. In politics
Mr. Nye is a Republican but indepen
dent when local questions are voted
upon. His religious views are liberal.
Unobfitrusive in his manner, just in
his dealings with his fellow men, he is
held in high esteem by his neighbors
and all know him as a man of
unquestioned integrity and a true type
of a genuine pioneer.
It is stated thataneffortisbeingmade
lire from President Hayes a re-
be Government's portion of
gd upon W. C. Gris-
jinB. F. Dowcll was
blithe move
der of the judgement against him with
costs etc. and go on his way rejoicing.
Jim Blaine, the Clay of the Republi
can party, has won a grand victory in
Maine by his bold, earnest and honest
advocacy of the right. Conkling is
almost certain to carry New York
again. It will remain for the great
West to say which shall be President,
provided Yazoo, De Kalb and other
sections of the bulldosing South don't
force the nomination of Grant.
in
The ex-Confederate soldiers and sail
ors of San Francisco, acted nobly
participating in the reception given
Gen. Grant They vindicated their
claim to the title of American citizens
and merit honorable mention among
those who paid the distinguished ex
President the regard due one who
staked life and fortune on the preser
vation of his country's liberty.
It is seldom that a man lives to read
his own obituiry but our old friend
Calvin B. MacDonald sevms to be such
an exception to a general rule. He
writes from Oakland, California,
to the Salem "Statesman," that
he is not dead and he must bo accepted
as competent authority on the subject.
It was that paper which put the story
in circulation and it did so in anything
but commendable terms.
Mel
Cer.ua, Republican candidate for
i Thirs? District of Cali
fornia, is defeated by a small majority
by Berry,. Democrat. McKenna was
ahead until nearly all the votes were
counted when his competitor took the
lead an"! came' out with enough to
elect. The Congressional delegation
from California therefore stands three
. Republicans and one Democrat.
As we predicted last week the Dem
ocratic State Convention of Massachu
setts has assembled and endorsed the
nomination of Ben Butler and "Wendell
Phillips for Governor and Lieutenant
Governor: The old story about Ben
hooking the spoons is taken back and
Lis Democracy is pronounced genuine.
It is asserted by foreign news gatherers-
that Russia is again seeking an ex
cuse- to interfere in Turkish matters.
England's suspicions of her rival are
again aroused and an early resort to
arms would not be surprising.
SoEGiruai. Mr. L Stephenson of
Jackass Creek has raised a small cropof
Sorghum which attained iino growth.
He is now engaged, with the aid of
Ur. Wmv Pense, in manufacturing
tyrup liom the cane uith a pros
pect of excellent success. There
is no doubt but that the Sorguin sugar
cane can be raised on the Lest and in
this county to perfection..
all science, all music, or all any one
thing. There is a tendency in some
schools to unsymmelrical development.
Music alone is, we fear, depraving ; so
with art; so with the exclusive study of
matter or mind.
Americans need art, mental and
moral science. They are being neg
lected. Let us learn to use the brush
and pencil as well as the pen.
But in supplying food for the grow
ing mind are the moral and religious
faculties to be disregarded 1
There are many who are loud and
constant in their talk against Christian
schools. We believe rather that relig
ious schools are right in principle, and
may be made not only unobjectionable
but the more practical and thorough,
for being Ghristian.
It is conceded by all thaghysi
cal trainins of students showM not be
neglected; rather than it sp!ngthens
the mind, imparting vigor and symme
try to the mental faculties. The schol
ar need not and should not have poor
health. Calisthenics are right in theory
and may be made in every school both
pleasant, safe and profitable. These
are statements undenied and quite stale
among teachers. Why then should it be
thought less desirable or necessary that
the religious and moral nature should
receive at least secondary attention
while disciplining the mind ?
Is a depraved heart less fatal to in
tellectual completeness than bodily dis
ease 1
There is not an argument which may
bo urged in favor of giving careful at
tention to the physical well being of
students that may not stand with great
er force in favor of religious and moral
instruction.
Is it said that mental action may be
stimulated in connection with physical
exercise ! How are the reason, the im
agination and the intuitive faculties
called into action as we reason of God,
of Christ, of eternity, of righteousness,
temperance and a judgment to come?
If tracing the nice mechanism of the
steam engine or of the telegraph, awak
en thought, noting how well adapted
they are to serve man; will not consid
ering lite ana eartn as prooationary,
s tending in the practice of righteous-
o develope heavenly powers, to
prepare for endless glory and fruition,
bo still more profitable, quicken the
mind, arouse to thought?
If the true teacher may give instruc
tion and pleasant exercise to the pupils
while botanizing in fields or forests;
the physical and the mental stimulating
each the other, vby may not the mind
and heart at the same time be directed
lovingly, gratefully, adoringly, to God,
the maker of all things, to love whom
sincerely is the alpha and omega of
true religion J
In describing the steam engine,
teachers commend the genius of Watts;
if explaining the telegraph, the name
of Morse is spoken with reverence; and
ought not the teacher of Botany, Phy
siology, Astronomy and Zoology to
awaken most hoty reverence, most ar
dent love for God among his pupils, as
the perfection, utility, grandeur and
beauty of nature are described?
In furnishing food for thought, scope
for the imagination, and exercise for
,the reason, how can a teacher do better
than in Butler's Analogy, Christian
Evidences, Philosophy of the Plan of
Salvation, and kindred works?
Is it said these are too difficult, too
abstract. So may Arithmetic, Geog
raphy and Grammar be made blind and
uninteresting. Understood by the
teacher, their importance comprehend
ed; taught with tact and enthusiasm,
moral and religious Philosophy will
prove as attractive to upright mi
pupils as mathematics and the langua-
ges.
As to the difficulties surrounding the
subjects: man as a religious being; God
eternal, righteous, merciful, omnipre
sent, invisible, yet real and loving; life
as a probation and Christ our guide and
Savior, as to the difficulties attending
the description of these questions, there
disassociated, surely education and re
ligion ought not to be. Christianity
is not a set of forms; it is a life, a refor
mation and development of the heart
Because Cannibals eats human flesh,
are we to become vegetarians?
Because Roman Catholics train
their scholars to worship images, are
we to cease teaching our youth to wor
ship God!
Because Papists craftily disseminate
Popeiy in their schools, are we to give.
up our children to infidelity and not
hingarianism?
Satan has through the I oily of Ro
manism led many to give up religion
altogether. Are wo going to neglect
the Christian schooling and training
of our children, because Romanists
have been crafty enough to use schools
for propogating their baneful teachings?
If so, the evil effects of that system in
the past are small compared with
what is yet to come of it
, Ashland College will be a christian
School, honestly, openly, ardently.
It will not be sectarian. There is a
wide difference between the terms
Christian and pectarian. This will be
a religious institution only in that we
shall labor fo vitalize, purify, and
strengthen the moral while the mental
faculties are being developed. Thor
oughness will not be sacrficed upon
the altar of Theology. As practical
scholars, as clear and independent
thinkers, as ready accountants and
scientists our students shall excell. But
be assured, dear friends, on the Pacific
coast,'piety is not alarmingly prevalent,
schools are not spoiled by spirituality.
Worship does not weaken. Right
habits, pure thoughts, deep thinking,
and devout hearts are allies. Let not
education and religion be dissociated,
Away with bigotry and priestcraft; but
let piety and intelligence abound.
By the alchemy of life fuel is trans
formedmto fiber; by volitoin, truth is
incorporated into character. Great
thoughts make great men. Libraries
and schools feed our higher natures,
are tables which should never lack
supplies.
May the institution wo found to
day nourish all that is noble in the
human soul. By its aid may thou3
tnds be made mighty, capable, com
plete. Wide, benign, and lasting be
its influence. Citizens of Jackson
County, cherish ic; defend it; honor it
Living, labor for it; dying bequeath to
it bountifully. Its success depends
not only upon its President;
but upon its patrons. Both sexes shall
set at its tables. Temperance, Intelli
gence and l Christianity preside at its
feasts. Food thall here be spread
such as the great and good have ever
fed upon. Firm and healthy shall be
the fiber here formed. Immortal
minds in the light of their native im
mortality shall here be taught and
trained. Thou Great Teacher instrnct
us all. On the pupils, patrons and pre
ceptors of Ashland College and Nor
mal School may the blessing of the
Trinne God, Father Son and Holy
Spirit, forever rest
