and strained to tower up to Mr.
Frick's height, but it was no use, he
was a pigmy still. He lost himself
in the maze of his own glowing
rhetoric. He skipped and gamboled j
about among the propositions laid
down by Mr. Frick.but he disturbed
them not. His Kuglish was good,
his rhetoric faultless, his manner
pleasing, but he produced no facts,
established no principles, and left
his hearers unsatisfied with lame
conclusions. This morning no
democrats could be found. Mr.
Frick's plain, matter-of-fact manner
and his candor go a great way iu
fixing principles anil facts."
SITUMIL I..WV nivUSloN.
State Superintendent of Public
Instruction Cloudy has announced
the following decisions upon ques
tion raised iu regard to the inter
pretation of the school law: The
board of education in a city may
make and enforce a regulation
making the suspension of a pupil
the punishment for injury to or de
struction of city property. It is not
necessary to the validity of a vote
cast at a school meeting that the
voter shall be cither a citizen of the
United States or that he shall have
ueciareu lus intention to Decoine a
citizen. In the employment of a
teacher the board is not bound by
any action ihe voters may take
relative thereto at the annual meet
ing. The tdattitcs empower the
board to select and to contract with
teachers. The only conditions that
entitle one to school privileges in a
given district are school age and
residence in the district. The fact
that one owns property iu the dis
gives him no school rights. Super
intendent Cioudy renfVirms the de
cision of Superintendent Lane made
several years ago to the etfect that
a school board has no right to
make a contract with a teacher,
which contract is to be wholly or
largely carried out in the year fob

him to go forthwith to Trenton, re
