An articlo which lately appeared in
tlio cdi orial columns of n democratic
daily, wherein tlio immense superior
ity of tlio former fusion administra
tions was tot forth "at great length"
(referring to tlio typo used) attracted
tho attention of your correspondent,
and for tho purposo of discovering
whether or not thoro was even a sus
picion of truth in tlio articlo, a care
ful survey of tho records in tlio gov
ernor's ofllco was mado. As was an
ticipated tlio resultant llgures provo
beyond doubt Unit tho present admin
istration, so bitterly assailed upon
every possible occasion, has been much
11101 0 economical than tho very admin
istrations so loudly praised as tho best
tho stato ever had.
In tlio beginning, it must bo remem
bered that Nobraska is n growing
state. Her needs havo kept step with
her resources. If her earning capacity
has increased slightly, her oxponso
account has boon increased in greater
measure, so that it would bo unfair to
compare the expenditures of tho vari
ous administrations, without allowing
for tho growing family of dependents
which havo been put upon tlio stato.
It Is well to remember, too, that n gov
ernor or other stato oilleer is not tlio
legisture, and cannot niiiko appropri
ations. All Unit 1111 olllclnl can do is
to disburse tlio money allowed to his
department in tlio best possihlo way
and make every dollar do a hundred
cents' worth of good to tlio stato. Tho
record of tho present administration
in that regard is something which tho
party may well bo proud of.
Roports recently filed with tho gov
ernor show that tho avorago cost of
supporting tlio inmates of tho state's
various penal, charitublo and educa
tional institutions has beou just 801.05
per capita for tho six months just end
ed. Under tlio Poyntor administra
tion, pointed to with prldo by men
I WHO are uuujiu in iimiwiiK UKiuea liu-
varicato, tho per capita cost is 808.(0
Thoso figures are oloqueut enough of
thomsolvos, but witli thorn aro circum
stances which add greatly to their
force and weight.
It nood scarcely bo explalnod that
tho increased prico of living, tho
higher wage paid to every laboror who
works for tho tU i, the advanco in
account of the disbursements made
by ono of Governor Poyntor's appoint
cos, Dr. Benjamin Franklin Lang, tho
York physician who sang his way into
tho suporlntondeney of tho Beatrice
iuslituto and became famous for the
lavish expenditures or public money
mado by himself and his family of as
sistants. Not a report or a column of
figures is on, fllo in tho governor's of
llco to show, tho extent of; tho depre
dations which Lang committed upon
tho publlcltroasury whllo ho was pur
chasing silk stockings and lino linen
for his femalo relatives out of tho
fnnds of the institution.
In addition to all of this, it may bo
said that the institutions today aro
kept up, the buildings, the bill of faro,
tho sanitary arrangements, tho discip
line and instruction being maintained
at a high standard, while under Poyn
tor there were leaks iu the roofs of
nearly every stato building and else-whero.

Thoro woro complaints of over
crowded schools nt Batavla, N. V., and
tho board secured seven extra teachers.
Tho superintendent, instead of sotting
them to hearing recitations iiko tho
regular toachors, set them to giving in
dividual instruction to pupils that
wero behind in tho courso and wero u
drag to tho wholo school.
Tho experiment was, to quoto the
report of tho stnto superintendent, a
startling and iustantuuoous success.
Discouragement, which is tho bano of
school lifo, has disappeared from all
faces und tears from all eyes.
Tho backward pupil's havo becomo
forward so to speak, and in many cases
havo pressed iho bright lights and
leading pupils of the classroom so that
theso havo all thoy can do to keep
their old standing
Thoso seven extra teachers go from
room to room in their work, helping
along tlio backward wherever found.
Thoy aro not assistants or subordi
nates, but rank with tho regular teach
org and rccelvo the same pay. They
do not in any sonso do tho pupils work,
but show him how to do it for himself,
how to concentrate tho mind, how to
Tho Journal of Pedagogy unreser
vedly in proves tho plan thus:
'A rather wido observation of publio
school conditions justifies us in saying
that thero may bo seen iu Dnttviii a
healthier, happier, nioro industrious
body of teachers and pupils than aro
to bo found in any other public school
system in America Tho first impres
sion ono gets is that of abounding phy
sical and intellectual lifo. Although
tho teachers and pupils work as hard
iu tlio Bittavia schools as elsewhere,
thoro is no complaint about overwork
and norvousnoss. and thorn is trust
worthy evidence that the health of tho
pupils entering school iu a physical
condition below tlio normal has shown
a decided chuugo for the hotter."
Uf courso tho system is not now, ox
copt to tho publio schools of this
country. Tho privato tutor In British
institutions is as old as tho educational
system thojqp, and tho olllco is funda
mental in continent! education. Its
accidental application to tho publio
schools seem to havo worked wonder
fully well. It is worth thinking about.
