As Laid Out by H. F. L LOGAN
Among other things to be discussed
at the school meeting at district No.
One next Monday evening is the es
tablishing of a high school in said dis
trict Before attempting exact discussion
of any question it is always best to
have terms exactly defined. Just
what is meant by "establishing a high
school in the district," is too vague a
generalization to admit of close argu
ment or definite criticism.
It may be assumed, however, that
the project is to have more advanced
grades taught in that building. It is
proljable that at the meeting the idea
or intention will be elaborated with
more exactness, and that it can then
be made more satisfactory basis for
argument pro and con. It is a ques
tion of great importance. Kecogniz
ingthe fact that it is cheaper to edu
cate a child than to punish a criminal,
the state, purely as a matter of busi
ness, takes upon itself to give every
boy and girl a knowledge of the rudi
mentary principles of education.
We have little patience with those
fine spun theorists who come out of a
glass case and say that if the state ed
ucates a child, it ought, logically, to
Teed it, clothe it, give it a trade, and
n start in business. There is no logic
in such argument The one does not
imply the other, and all practical peo
ple recognize the necessity of popular
education, and the requisite sustain
ing of our national public school
system, without which the country
would go to pieces.
This is not an extravagant state
ment Without the public school,
this republic of ours wouldn't last one
generation. The children go in as in
dividual representatives of every
country; they have all the inherent
elements of the nativity from which
they sprung. They come out Amer
icans; welded together; homogen
eous; no longer Scandinavian or Ger
man or English or Irish or French, or
anything else but Americans.
Nothing else will do that; it is a
necessary work, and the most ingen
iously devised political scheme
couldn't improve on the public school
system as a machine for manufactur
ing young Americans out of the ma
Just how far the state should go in
educating the child is a question on
which there is considerable difference
Some think that if the state fur
nishes its boys and girls with the
rudiments: with what is called an
"ordinary common school education,"
it has done its duty. Others think
that the state should do mora They
hold that the higher branches should
be taught and that when our boys
and girls have completed the course,
for instance now taught in the public
schools of this city, they should
have an opportunity to take a high
This is believed to be a fair state
ment of the case.
A few further remarks are in order.
It maybe stated without fear of suc
cessful contradiction that a public
school should give its pupils the ru
diments of a common school educa educa
teon: that is the vory least expected of
it, and that until such result is reached
the very first requirements of a school
are not fulfilled.
It will also be admitted on all sides
that these primary requirements may
bo briefly stated as follews: A boy or
girl after a sufficient time spent at
school ought to be able to add, sub
tract, multiply, and divide figures cor
rectly, read intelligently, and write a
This, is, certainly, not asking too
much, or setting a very high standard
of requirements, yet those humble but
necessary requirements are what a
good many boys and girls haven't got
It is the duty of the stite, the city,
the school district to see that they
have at least a fair chance to
attain that and until every boy and
girl of school age have an even show to
learn the humble butnece3sary "three
B's." that school is not filling its func
tions. These are the corner stones of the
stately edifice that is capped to com
pletion by the high school, the college
and the state university.
Homely duties are none the less im
perative because of their humble sta
tion. The idea of a high school is a
grand ene: it should be our purpose
and privilege to have a high school
that would bo a "high school," one in
fact as well as in name; if our citizens
believe that the primary duties of the
school are fully up to existing require
ments: if the lower rooms are not too
crewded: if the primary departments
arc not overflewing: if the trained and
experienced teachers in those now are
getting the salaries they should; if all
that ought to be done to insure a boy
aad girl a chance to learn to read and
write and cipher is done, let us have a
kigb school that shall not be out
ranked in the slate. Expense in such
a case is a secondary object

A 1,000 BET.
The memorandum of an agree
ment made in Astoria, Oregon,
this 18th day of July, 1890, by
an 'J between Herman Wise and J.
Ash, witnesseth: that each of the
parties hereto have depositod with
Mr. C. J. Trenchard of said city,
the sum of 500, and that it is
mutually agreed between the par
ties hereto, that if the sales of said
Herman "Wise, at his clothing es
tablishment at 469 and 471 Second
street, in said city, shall exceed
the full sum of 15,000 within the
next sixty days from the date
hereof, all of the total sum of
1,000, deposited as aforesaid,
shall be paid to said Herman
Wise, on his affording said C. J.
Trenchard satisfactory evidence
that his sales have in said period
exceeded said amount and that if
said sales do not in said period
exceed said amount, said total sura
of 1,000 is to be paid said J.
Witness our hands and seals the
dar and year first above written.
Signed in presence of
C. J. Curtis,
Notary Public for Oregon.
Herman Wise is not a betting
man, but Mr. Ash was bragging
so much about the amount of bus
iness done bjT certain houses on
the Sound, that Mr. Wise offered
to bet 500 that he can sell just
as much clothing as any retail
clothing house on Puget Sound.
This is a matter of home pride,
and as Herman Wise offers his
entire stock at cost, rather than
lose the bet, it is safe to say that
Astonans generally will help
themselves and their town, by
helping Mr. Wise to win this
