A writer in the Country Gentle
man has hit on the true rcuson of
the opposition to practical farm
labor in most agricultural colleges
and departments of universities.
Ho finds it in a letter of some profes
sor of agriculture lately published,
denouncing the practical farm work
done at sucii institutions and calling
for suppression of the work and
confinement to theory! It lets out
the secret by saying that nearly
every student will know far more
about the manual operations of
funning than any of tlio professors ! !
Yes indeed ! Then turn out such ig
norant professors and put in those
who do know about farming
practically, wherever it is necessary.
Tlio idea of running an agricultural
college without ono professor being
practically acquainted with farming
is on a par witli nuiny other college
humbugs. For ages the learned
colleges have been goingon wasting
precious years of youth hi learning
Greek and Latin grammar, when
one year of combined reading and
grammar would eil'eet more than
llvo of tlio old way. So too will the
agricultural schools fail into imbecil
ity if not watched.
(speaking of the above scrvlco the
Pioneer of Astoria says among many
other interesting mutters on tlio
same :
"Should tlio bar pilots bo remov
ed, the ship muster will still pay the
$1,830, that lie does now, and will
not have the splendid servicoaf lord
ed him that lie now enjoys.
To put tho mutter in a fow words,
a reduction of pilotage means depriv
ing a few men of employment aud
giving the well earned stipend
which should bo paid them, to a
The agent of tho bar pilots makes
affidavit that tho manager of tlio O.
11. A N. Co., made a proposition to
him stating that "If tho bar pilots
would guarantee tho company 40
pur cent of their gross earnings they
would we that tlio laws in regard to
pilotage would not bo changed." If
this bo true, when did tho 0. 11. &
N. Co. purchase tho Oregon legisla
ture? Tho vote upon tho pilot bill
will determine perhaps, how many
of tho members the company own."
Tin: sky oleared on Friday beforo
sunrise and gave us a day of remark
able brilliancy. Mt. Hood towered
in its sublime majesty. Visitors
from abroad viewing it from tho
"WUlametto bridge exclaimed : "That
heats l'lko's Peak by far." Tho
reason Is that while the Peak is
favorably viewed from tho ground
eight or ten thousand feet above tlio
sou level, Hood Is seen best from
plaeurt only a few feet abovo tho
same level, l'lko's Peak is only
Minio four to six thousand feet abovo
the point of view, while Hood is
about twelve thousand above.
A witinvu named Frye, being
fined for drunkoness and vilo Ian-
guugo Iwforo ladles in the streets of
Chleo aud the allalr published as of
course by tlio Chronicle, committed
a murderous utoaiilt on tho proprie
tor, A. J. Brown and threatens to
kill him on sight. Such a brute
ought to bo (routed Ilko a mad-dog

The sudden death of Congressman
Burns of tho St. Joseph, Missouri,
District while in committee on ap
propriations, of which he was acting
chalrman,ls one of those occurrences
which must strike with amazement
tho thousands of people with whom
he was a familiar acquaintance.
And yet such things are happening
every Week, and we still go on grasp
ing and eager to lay up money and
seize honor and power whicli sift
through onr frail hands liko things
made of dry sand. Here was a man
who had more than a soul could reas
onably usk for, whose wealth was
counted by millions and to whom
everything in this world was given
for the asking and who could say,
"now soul take thine ease," and yet
liko Vauderbilt with his hands full
of riches In one awful moment lie
plunged into eterniiy. Wo meet
our friend this evening aud ere per
haps another sun has set ho is be
neath the sod. This should not
inilucnce us to labor in our voca
tions with less energy, but it should
lead us to aid our fellownicn with
liberality and to despise that grasp
ing avarice which would appropri
ate all to ourselves.
It lias always seemed wonderful
to us that tho Chinese persist in
remaining on this coast where they
are so often ill treated and so little
welcome when by going to the states
of tlio North West they would find
a hospitable greeting as farm labor
ers and in various departments in
cities and towns. The few dozens
that are in St. Joseph aud Kansas
City are doing well.
A committee of safety has devel
oped at San Francisco to suppress

House lilMi NO. 104.
When Govenor Penuoyer stated
in his recent message that it was
lime that the State University dis
pensed with State aid and content
ed iiselt with Its iucouio from iCe
$1SO,000 endowment fund, and from
tuliionj and that its free scholar
ship should bo abolished, a hearty
anion broke from tho lips of tho peo
plo quite widely throughout tho
state. Hut now conies a courageous
legislator from tho classic groves of
tho University and modestly asks
for what? that tho Governor's ad
vlco and tho audlblo wish of the tax
payors bo respected? on tho contrary
that tho tax bo increased from ouc
tonth of umill to ono-.-oventh, and
that the Literary Department of tho
school bo made entirely free.
We mistake tho temper of tho tax
payers If they do not promptly form
ulate a bill that will express their
convictions and ask their legislatois
to promptly pass it instead of this
II. B. 104. A fow facts will ni'iko
tills duty clear.
Tlio pat rous of higher education
constitute what proportion of tho
State? lis impossible to exactly de
termine this, but as only ono person
out of every fifteen hundred is a col
lego graduate, tho inference is inev
itable that such taxpuylng patrons
of higher education are certainly in
the minority.
Again statistics show that moro
than nine-tenths of the pations of
higher education have no personal
interest in tlio Stato i nlvcrslty, levs
than one-tenth pre'erting that insti
tution. Indeed it Is vory much
within bounds to say that not one
taxpayer in twenty-fivo has any
personal Interest In tho Stato Uni
versity or receives any benefit from
It. Yet tho twoiily-fouraro paying
ttielr taxes for the benefit ot thoooe,
and tills besides paying voluntarily,
In many Instances, to susta'n othor
institutions which supply a typo of
education better suited to their
needs. Is it not time that so very
largo a majoilty should bo relieved
from a tax for the benefit of so small
a minority?
Hut what is the university doing
to justify so much outlay? The lust
catalogue gives the following num
ber of students In tho Literary
(wrongly given as Collegiate)
Department: Tu tlio four collego
o1umcs 28; in tlio proarutory course
00; in tho English Preparatory 21;
tvtal 161. Let it bo noted that of
the 23 in the ollogo proper 14, or
exactly ouo-hulf, roMdo in Eugene;
anil of tho 133 in the Preparatory
Courses, 6S or nearly ont-luilf reside
in Kuxonc.
Free tuition, therefore, moans
chiotly a (ivo high school at Eugene
at tho state's expense with but
trilling benefit to tho rest of tho
state. Indeed the first year of the
English Preparatory docs little if
anything moro than common school
work and to that extent it Is propos
ed to run a free common sohool In
the University and tax tlio Btate
accordingly. What wisdom! But
these preparatory courses aro prop
erly work for a mere high school
or Academy, and assueb'liave prop
erly no place, except by 'sufferance,
in the University Halls. They
ought and "need" not be sustained
by teacners on higli salaries.
Indeed such work is frequently
self-sustaining. Yet leaving out
tills preparatory work, we have only
tho College proper left with its 2S
The income of tho Jniverslly
from allsources other than tutition,
was last yea-' ?10,70tJ4, and it was
all expended. Deducting 1209.1-1
paid to the Law School and there
remains $15,132.04 or about kool per
student, and just one-half of these
residents of Eugene. The aggregate
income is not largo for :. University
doing any considerable work, but il
iscertoinly large for a ''ollege list of
only 28 students.
Now as a matter of fact the in
come of the University is more than
twice that of any liko institution in
the state independent of the income
from the state.
It is as follews:
From Land Fund - 7,700.00
" Villard " - - 3,000.00
" Tuition " - - 3.GS3.00
Total $143S3.00
If fee scholarships were abolished
the income from tuition would prob
ably I-e something more than $5, 000,
which would make tho total $ii5,700
or mo.'c. It also has a surplus fund
resulting from taxation of some
Tho University is well manned
with instructors yet there aro educa-
tois in the state who could organize
its leaching force with equal ability
at an expense easily within this re
duced income. Other Universities
in tho state aro doing a much larger
woikon less thanhulf tho amount.
But says one, "i night we not to
so support tho University as a state
institution that we can ako pride
in il?" Ought wo not first of all to
seek to take prido hi doing equal
and ext'ct justice to all rather than
in unjustly taxing tho whole com
mon wealth to sustain not so much
r -'act as an ideal
"But other states do it?" of coutse
tliero is no folly that can bo propos
ed Out some states can be quoted as
having perpetuated it first. That
proves nothing. Tho great stato of
New York h;s no Stale University,
but a board of resents to supervise
and encourage all seminaries and
universities ln tho state. Oregon
will do justly and wisely by fosterius
ing and encouraging every worthy
lustitution'or learning in the com
mon weatli, not oy the gift of money
but by guarding everyone against
unjust disctiminalious in legislation
and according- no pil.ilege or right
to one that is not accorded to all.
If it were once understood that tho
State Uulvesirty must depend here
after, not on tho Stato Treasury but
on benevolent patrons liko Henry
Villard, wealthy and beuovolcnt
citizens who aro convinced of its
usefulness, would doubtless gener
ously increase its endowment as
needed. Would not thl3 bo better
than an unjust tax grudgingly paid?
It may bo added that, tho above
statistics aro from tlio University
eataloguo aud the report of the presi
dent of tho Board of Regents.
Whoever will read theso docu
ments carefully will find abundant
material to confirm tho views herein
