The newspaper humorists and poets
feare responsible for much that goes a
tlong ways toward making life brighter
for the majority of folk, and they de
serve all and more recognition than
, they get: Among the best of the west
ern artists in this line, and one' of
khe best in the country, is Bide Dud-
ley of the Kansas City Star. Mr. Dud
ley sings of tho quaint and homely
things of life, and his verses recall
tdays that are bright spots in the ave
rage man and woman's life. Under
Ethe title of "Sketches; Mostly Boys,"
Mr. Dudley has recently issued a
bhandsome book containing boys poems
ithat give ample evidence of the fact
that the writer was once a hearty,
wholesome, mischievous boy and
masn't entirely recovered yet. The
Iboolr. is handsomely illustrated with
drawings by H. Wood, aad the letter
press by the Hudson-Kimberly Co., is
axcellent. Tho man who reads
'Sketches" will have the pleasure of
living again several happy hours of
coived. considerable support, is to pro
vide that tho appropriation for negro
schools shall bo in proportion to the
taxes paid by tho colored people.
Tho Richrond Times denounces tho
scheme in tho following language:
"The state will cruelly have neg
lected its duty if it glvekto tho white
children the means of primary educa
tion, and withhold it from the children
that are black. Nor do we believe that
the people of Virginia are willing that
this cruel thing bo done."
Senator Daniels, in a letter recently
"Primary education ought to be free
to all. With the three R's open to
everybody they have the keys that un
lock the book of knowledge, and it is
their own fault or peculiar misfortune
if they do not then work out their own
salvation. You will observe that I
speak of primary education. I do so
because I think much of education has
been wasted, and there is ample room
for improvement and reform without
disturbing tho foundations of educa
tion and denying to any one primary
opportunities. Our own people
are liberal by nature and history, and
there was'never a time when they could
better afford to be liberal by interest
Every southern state and every border
3tate has had a constitutional conven
tion, anu some of them two constitu
tional conventions since Virginia's last.
one, in 1867. All of these states have
had racial questions to deal with, and
some of them - ere stirred to the high
est pitch of indignation by the atroc
ities of carpetbag government. Yet in
no one of them ha3 any such radical
move as the partition of school funds
by severe racial lines ever found favor.
This is a most significant fact. It shows
the concurrent opinion of all common
wealths similarly situated to ours that
no such step is advisable. We would
isolate ourselves by taking it and chill
tho temper of reform."
The question raised is one of very
serious importance of far greater im
portance than the educational qualifi
cation which has been adopted in some
of the states. An educational quanti
fication, however objectionable it may
seem at the time, is only a temporary
barrier, for with a proper school sys
tem the franchise is soon within the
reach of all; but to disfranchise the
negro by an educational qualification
and then deny uim the means of get
ting an education, Is a much more se
While it may seem a hardship for
the. white people to bear so large a
share as they co of the expenses of in
struction for colored children, they
find some recompense in the fact that
they own a large share 'of the taxable
property. In no state- of the union is
there an attempt to make each family
or class pay for its own education. In
every community the expense of pub
lic schools is paid by general taxation.
Very often large taxpayers have few
children or none at all, but they are.
compelled to contribute to the support
of schools because every citizen of a
community is interested in the educa
tion of all the members of the com
munity. Life and property are more
secure and existence more tolerable in
proportion as the people are developed
in mind and character.
If tho people of Virginia are short
sighted enough to yield to tho tempta
tion and abandon their efforts to edu
cate tho black pcoplo among them, they
will pay a terriblo penalty in being
compelled to live among pcoplo bru
talized by ignorance. Tho amount of
money saved would bo a small return
for tho peril which thoy would bring
upon themselves and their children.
Jefferson, whoso dust makes sacred the
soil of Monticollo, was a firm believer
in a common school system which
would place tho advantages of educa
tion within the reach of every child.
Surely Virginia, the homo of Jefferson,
will not bo tho first state to enter upon
a restrictive policy which would con
demn a portion or tho people to en
forced illiteracy From The Common
er of May 10, 1901.
Could Have His Place
Representative John Lamb of Rich
mond stopped in jtho house document
room -yesterday, where he was re
minded of a story ho heard on his
last trip, says tho Washington Post.
It related to a negro church, whose
pa3tor preaches long sermons.
"The sermon on tho particular Sun
day in question," said Capt Lamb,
"was with reference to tho prophets.
Tho preacher had gone through a long
list, and finally camo to tho minor
" 'There was Malachi,' said he.
'What place shall wo give Malachi?'

Addressing House of Commons
It is well not to try to speak too
soon. Randolph Churchill only opened
his mouth once during hi3 first session,
and that was to ask a question. John
Morley sat watching and listening for
months before he ventured to catch
tho speaker's eye, and his first per
formance was by no means successful.
We all know the story of Disraeli's
early collapse, and a more tragic epi
sode is thus related by Lord North's
son, Frederick: "I once attempted to
speak in Parliament I brought out
two or three sentences, when a mist
seemed to rise before my eyes. I then
lost my recollection, and could see
nothing but the Speaker's wig, which
swelled and swelled till it covered the
whole house. I then sat back In my
seat and never tried to speak again,
and immediately applied for the Chll
tern Hundreds, feeling convinced that
Parliament was not my vocation."
Phvsioloeists have never tried to
explain why people who aro loquacious,
and even garrulous, as long a3 they
maintain tho sweet security of a seat,
halt and stutter and perhaps break
down hopelessly when they attempt to
speak on their legs. Every one of us
must some time or other have suffered
from one of these sudden lapses of
memory. Lord Roseberry not long ago
camo to a dead halt in tho middle of a
speech; Lowe's hopeless collapse Jn
the House of Commons is still pain
fully remembered, and poor Black Rod
on his first apearahce clean forgot tho
message from the Lords. Not even
Campbell-Bannerman's promptings re
stored his memory, and tho Speaker
was obliged to say that he understood
that a meL-age was being brought to
ask the attendance of the lower house
in tho lords. And even Jupiter has
nodded. Mr. Gladstone himself once
lost his cue and stopped abruptly,
when Disraeli bent forward and said,
"Tho right honorable gentlemen's last
word was so-and-50.' "Longman's
