THESEr EDUCATIONAL HILL.
The Blair educational bill, which
recently passe J the senate, provides
that no state or territory shall receive
the benefit of the act till the gov
ernor files with the secretary of the
interior a statement certified by him,
show in" the character of the com
mon school system in foroe m the
state or territory, the amount of
money expended thereon dnring the
last preceding school year, whether
any discrimination is made in raising
or distributing the school revenues,
or in the school facilities afforded be
tween white and colored children,
and as far as practicable the source
from which such revenues were de
rived, the manner in which the reve
nues are apportioned to the schools,
fh number of white and colored
schools, and tho average attendance
and length of the school term. None
of the money is to be expended in
ntiv state or territory that has not
provided a system of private schools
fnrall its children without distinc
tion of race or color.
The bill further provides that the
amount so apportioned to each state
or territory shall be drawn from the
treasury by warrant on the secretary
of the treasury on the monthly esti
mates of the secretary of the inte
rior, and shall be paid over to snob,
officer as shall be authorized by the
laws of the respective states and ter
ritories to receive the same. The
money is to be expended in giving
the children purely a common school
education. It is provided that no
greater part of the money appropri
ated shall be paid out to any state or
territory in any one year than the
sum expended out of its own reve
nue, or out of the money raided un
der its authority in the preceding
year for the maintenance of common
schools, not including the sum ex
pended for erecting school buildings.
Provision is made for the education
of teachers in training schools, who
shall agree to devote themselves ex
clusively for at least one year after
leaving said school to teach in the
common schools for such compensa
tion as may be paid other teachers.
No part of the fund is to be used in
erecting school buildings or for the
rent of the same. The money dis
tributed shall be used only for com
mon schools, not sectarian in char
acter, in the school districts of the
several states and territories, in suoh
a way as to provide, as near as can
be, for the equalization of school
privileges to all children of a school
age provided in the state wherein the
expenditure is made.
The bill is explicit in providing for
the distribution of mouey for educa
tional purpose without distinction of
race or color. No second or subse
quent allotment shall bo made under
the act to any state or territory unless
the governor of such state or territory
shall first file with the secretary of
the interior a statement, certified by
him, giving detailed accounts of the
payments or disbursement for a por
tion of the fund allowed to his state
or territory. A provision is made for
the expenditure of the money, in ac
cordance with whioh the officials of
the states and territories charged
with the distribution of the same are
held to a rigid accountability. Tho
secretary of the interior is given
power to hear and examine tho com
plaints of misappropriation or unjust
discrimination in the use of the fund.
He is required to report to congress
tho result. Ho is also charged with
a proper administration of the act in
the territories through a commis
sioner of education, and shall report
annually to congress the practical
operation of the law, and briefly the
condition of education as affected
thereby throughout tho ountry.
Massachusetts is making a dead
set against illiteracy. A bill is to be
favorably reported by her legislative
committee, which will prohibit under
suitable penalties the employment of
illiterate minors. It provides that no
minor under fourteen years of age
shall be employed except during the
vacation of tho public schools, and
all those under fourteen, resident one
year where evening schools are main
tained, unless able to read and write
the English language correctly, shall
be employed under penalty. This
will bo the first compulsory law of
the kind ever passed in the United
The American minister has de
manded of the Haj tien government
the payment of 3100,000 indemnity
for American losses on account of
the riots in September last, and the
surrender of the mole of St. Nicholas
as guarantee that the money be paid.
The German claims amount to 500,
030, the French claims to an equal
sum, and the English claims to S250,
EcFEBRrxa to tho CincinnHti out

American people that "one way to

POUT OF ANTWERP.
In 1883 the tonnage of Antwerp!
reached 3,734,42S registered tons.
This marvelous development is partly
due to the position of Antwerp as the
embarking point from the continent
of Europe to America, and partly
also to the recent additions and
changes which have been carried out
there, and which, now nearly entirely
completed, have made this cosmopol
itan port one of tho best organized,
in the world. This is so well known
that vessels bound for Switzerland
with a cargo of corn from Russia
pass Marseilles and go two thousand
miles out of their way for the pur
pose of unloading at Antwerp. No
other port, in fact oners the same
facilities. There is not another place
in the world where fifty vessels of
3,000 tons can come alongside as
easily as the penny boats on the
Thames run into tho landing stages.
As soon as a vessel is against the quay
the hydraulic cranes, always in read
iness, are set in motion and the un
loading commences. Not a moment
is lost. It needs but a couple of
days to remove 3,000 tons of mer
chandise from the hold of a
vessel to the railway truck wait
ing near at hand. Many important
lines running from Bremen and Ham
burg, the Peninsular and Oriental
company, and a great many English
vessels select that port to complete
their cargo and take on their passen
gers. They embark, for instance,
wire from Germany, and glass, window-panes
and machinery from Bel
gium, and other goods. The largest
sailing vessel in the world, the Three
Brothers, landed her cargo of 18,000
quarters of corn at Antwerp, and
made several voyages between that
port and San Francisco. Not only
Belgium's exports are shipped abroad
there and these are considerable
but Germauy sends her steel by that
route to the United States, who, in
return ship back immense quantities
of corn, salted provisions and petro
leum, and South America wool and
Seoretaby Ltxooln resembles his
father in personal appearance only
from tho eyes up. He is not so tall
or gaunt in figure as his father, nor
is the lower part of his face so nar
row, but the resemblance in the eyes
and forehead is so marked that the
secretary sat for what is considered
the best portrait ever painted of his
It will require fully $230,000 more
to complete the work of erecting the
Bartholdi statue in New York harbor,
and there seems little probability of
the money being raised.

is no Republican newspaper of any
influence in Massachusetts which is
not in favor of Edmunds for presi
