To thk Editor of tub Express.
As you lmve (kn ot t tl one ctiluniti of
your papiT to the ciuse nf education,
which Is the foundation of the pros
perity and happiness of a mil ion, I
wl-h to express my sentiments on the
itjeet. Not on the line of contro
versy, but on the ny of exehnnging
Ideas Willi other. ,
The object of our public schools, as I
uiidcistand it, is to 'ducato. By edu
cation, we mean the gaining of useful
knowledge, the development of tne
mind along tbe natural paths that
lead to human happiness. The object
of our public school system Is to give a
child an opportunity to learn demon
strated facts of science.the true history
nf world. the great principals of human
copduct, Ihe thing's necessary to the
preservation of the individual, of the
state and such arts and Industiles as
escenlial tothe pret-crvatlou of all. It
should le the duty of the principals of
our public schools to teach their pupils
the, diflVrriice between right and
wrong, to develop the minds in the di
rection of the beautilul, of the highest
art; so that Ihe palace in which the
mind -dwells, way be enriched and
and rendered beautiful.
There are tin two Individuals just a
like. Ko we must all differ In our
lives and methods. Each producing
something different from the others.
And as there are no two individuals
jutt alike, the same rule in tbe school
might not apply to the best advantage
to all its pupils. Therefore, these diffi
culties have to-be settled by reason, by
candor, by intelligent and kindness.
And next to being lightly born and a
good home education, we must look to.
our public schools as tbe means of de
veloping the miinliuess ofita pjOa by
making the sentiment of houpi ' a rule
of life. . v .
In my opinion, Moat'-g ('(.'ourls of
Honor," Willi their code of laws
should be pari of our public school
system; and questions of honor,
hypothetlcalli.or in fact should be dis- j
cussed, not only b r the bringing nut
and cultivating this nice sense in those
pupils who have not had the advant
age of good family tiaining, but for
di8linj;uUhiiiir Che false, sentiment.
Belf-respeet is a twin virtue with
honor. It is the cure, and the only
cure, for those personal vices which
degrade and ruin so muny thousands
of our raw;. Pride, in Its definition as
a noble self esteem, springs from a
conciousnesH of worth, belongs as a
motive power to good morals, to the
same family of uplifting virtuts of
which honor ami self-respect are mtm
hei's. In addition to the science of
physology, which shows 'hat all per
sonal vices are destroyers of health
anil suicidal in their tendencies. We
would dtvelop and cherish into be
coming proportion the sentiment of
honor, a snaik of which as leverage,
lit latent somewhere in the bosom of
every man, no mailer how degraded
he may be by vice mid crime.
There is, and always has been, such
a tiling uo a person being too proud to
be vain, too proud to do a mean, self
ish, acl and loo proud to give up the
government of himself and become a
scrvenl to any will habit.
The public school has an entirely
dill'crent function from that of tbe
family. Here the children of all the
citizens composing our political family
in each state of the union meet to
gether to receive, at the publio ex
pense, such education as will fit them
for the practical business of life, and
for the duties i f citizenship. Here Is
the place where character is developed
and appreciated, where friendships
are formed which last for life and are
the source of future pride and pleasure.
Here in the spirit of the constitution
courteous respect Is engendered and
manifested to all persons. Here is the
place where tbe constitution of the
United Hiates, as a grand text-book In
political science, and the machinery
of the government uuder it should be
studied by the advanced classes; and
on which the teacher could and should
comment without the danger of giving
offense; so that every youth shall be
able, when he goes to the polls to exer
cise bla sovereignty as a voter, to oast
his ballot lutelilgently and for the
good ot bis country. This can be done
only by development of the heart and
brain. , K M. C,

City Jail Burned to the Ground
Last Wedneaday Morning.
Word reached The Dalles Saturday
of Ihe burning of the town jail at
Prlneville, with the death in the
flames of Frank McNnlly. Mr.
Artlm' Hodgeti, county clerk of Crook
county, writes to Register Moore of
the land office, as fo.lows:
"Shortly before 8 o'clock this morn
ing the fire alarm was sounded, and It
was discovered that the town Jail and
old engine-house were ablaze. Before
the fire department could roach the
spot, the fire in these buildings was
beyond control, and it was with the
greatest difficulty that the blaze was
kept from extending toother buildings
in the vicinity. Frank McXalley was
locked In the jail a lew hours before
by Marshal Dolison, and it is supposed
be set fire to the bed. He was burned
to death, and bis charred remains were
found beneath the debris after the
flames had been subdued. Cornor
Priugle called a jury today to inquire
into the cause of tbe death of McNally
and the jury rendered a verdict In ac
cordance with tbe facta
"lobe victim of the fire was about 40
year of age. He came from Michigan
to thtp state and has resided in Crook
eouii' for the post six years. He ap
peared to be a man of educatiou, and
had rtrany good traits of character, but
bla kSfe for drink had wrecked his
life, awl brought to an untimely end
tbe eilstaiice of one who otherwise
wouldjave been a useful citizen."
Mr.irant, who drives the stage,
stated Jhat the general supposition is
that SftNally set fire to the building
h-imself in a fit of despondency.

The North Bound Express Held Up in

Also Shot.
MARYSVILLE, Cal., March 80.-
The north-bound Oregor express train
was held up at a point 100 yards or
more below the crossing at Reed's
station, seven miles south of this city,
at about 1:45 this morning.
The result of the hold-up was the
death of James J. Bogard, thewell
known aud efficient sheriff of Tehama
county, who was a passenger on the
train bound for liome.and occupying a
berth in tbe tourist sleeping car, and a
robber, six feel in height, weighing
about 200 pounds, attired in a full and
complete bicycle suit, over which he
had a pair of slip overalls and in
which there were two Improvised
pockets made of toweling to hold
pistols, two of which were found on
Fireman A. Kethercott was ser
iously injured, having received two
wounds in different parts of tbe body.
The first iutimation that the engi
neer and firemen had of the presence
of robbers was when, at the place
mentioned, one climbed over from tbe
blind baggage and commanded, at the
point of a pistol, that Ihe train be
stopped. This demand was s earnest
that brakes were applied. When stop
ped, they were commanded to move
about one hundred feet further, which
they did. Then the.j'ouhers caused
them to jump from the train, and,
with others who appeared to come
from a hiding place in the roadway,
made them request that the expreus
car be opened, This wus done, but
the robbers could fiud nothing of
value in the safe, as the combination
was not in the hands of the messenger.
Tbe two railroad men were then com
manded to go Into the cars.
Tbe robbers had a leg of an old pair
of overalls tied at one end, as tbey
went through the first oar, the
smoker, and made the passengers,
who were few in number, put their
coin and valuables in it, the fireman

man was in his shoes and trousers in
an Instant, aud,armedwiih his heavy
revolver, started for the door to tbe
north. He crossed the platform be
tween the sleeper and day coach, and,
as he entered the latter nt thu south
door, the robbers came lu at the north.
The sheriff stepped to one side,
aimed and fired. His bullet dropped
the man nearest hi iu, hut the second
failed to reach Its target. One of the
robbers must have seen Bogard enter,
and on doing bo jumped down, and
running alongside of the car, entered
and shot him from the rear,
When the robber was shot he ex
claimed: "I am done for!" Another
asked: "Are you killed, Bill?" aud
thereupon they hastily left the car,

Haiti men not to follow.

The Salem Journal says that tha
attoruey-geueral has this ufteruom
filed with the governor, his opinion ;u
to the status of the holding railroad
commissioners, tbe pilot commission
ers, the fish and game protector and
the food and dairy commissioner. Ho
has compiled an array of decisions
that seem to establish the claims of a' I
the above named officials to hold their
olllees although not elected by the leg.
Isluture, and the effect of this opinion,
which Is purely advisory and not ju li
cial, will be to declare that there are
no vacancies. Thegrlst ot the opinion
Is contained in the following para
graph: "The language of the statue
and the sections of the constitution iu
our Btate are similar and lu some
Instances almost identical with
those discussed in the oases above
cited, and in many of the Instances
the courts hava held that the liiouiu-

nu authority to appoint." Mr. Idle
man said to a Postman s "I have con
sidered the matter thoroughly; have
cited fourteen different cases, and am
thoroughly convinced that I could not
render a decision otherwise. I would
like very much to see the power
within the dictation of tha governor
to appoint new commissioners, but,
the laws will not permit It, and my
decision was rendered strictly In ao
oordauo with tba laws,"
