M Hccond CIiim Matter
Speaking of baseballIf your boost
ing percentage In tills town were hh
high ns Ty Cobb's hutting, how inui'h
better the mininunlt.v wotilil be.
The oetlon of the slate board in oust
ing Dr. Thomas from the state noriniil
school at Kearney brings up u plni-u
of our educational affairs that, should
be changed. This condition exists not
only with the state hoard but also in
ft large degree with the board of Uni
versity regont! and the school boards
in cities mid rural districts. These
boards should not have the authority
to remoro a teacher who linn establish
ed his Ability to tench successfully
with n just cause. For instance before
our own school board adopted the
permnnent teacher system that board
could dismiss anyone ns teacher In the
city schools without excuse or reason.
This is the power the state board has
and it is wrong in principle and often
works 'hardship in actual prnctlce.
After Dr. Thomas has successfully con
, ducted the affairs nt Kearney for eight
.or ten years it is reasonable to suppose
(that he never would be dismissed with
.out a hearing. Nebraska was thoroly
aroused when the Joe Cannon methods
were disclosed but apparently we have
had something of the sumo conditions
here in the government of our schools.
Jn all fairness to the capable teachers
who are educating the young in this
great commonwealth of ours their
positions should rest on n sure found
ation and not tiprn the caprice
whim of the governing power.
State Teachers
At Omaha
Whatever eUe was disclosed at the
Jaat state teachers association meeting
.the fact that there is a well-dellned
idea on the part of a great many teach
era in regard to n clique within the
circle. This was made so plait that
'he who runs may lead." We notice
in the press account's that the leaders
of tho association complained that the
jiewspapers paid too much attention
7o their quun e! and not enough atten
tion to the great work they were doing
Tiiis reminds us that someone has said
.something to tho effect that what you
are sounds so loud that what you say
ttfMiinot be heard.
:JhcJi'uivrs 0( our cousUtutlQU jdiv
rtol.cfl above all things to Leon edllcu-,-tional
institutions out of politics.
'That is the theory but it has developed
j$i late years that politics has crept in
lftpt,iiccaubu of the voters but in spite
cat them." The charge was freely made
.that this Inner circle of schoolmasters
aa used their high offices that tile fav.
cored ones were slated for the favorable
jpwiUons and every effort has been
UNed to HecUre the fat salaries for the
alftted ones.
Jf the teachers themselves very gen
crally beleive that undue inlluence is
Iheiug used for the benefit of the fav
cored few it is time that the voters of
lhe state take the matter in hand and
eskange the administration. The re
gmblicanB have been in charge of the
ifltate Superintendent's office, for a good
Many years and it is time that a demo

Population Figuring
A editorial writer for n Chicago
jMjjper has analyzed the 11)10 census
grith respect to rural population and
teclares that the rich agiicultural
laaetlon of the Middle West made otily
j small gain in population. Iowa,
oWHMidered one of the richest states in
jkm union, Bhows an actual loss in in
itvritants. Missouri shows an increase
jrf.ouly 0 percent. The sixteen great
.-agriculture states, the irardeu snot of
'Jtso earth, made a gain of hut l'.'.T per
dwut or a little more than half of the
Jfenro 21 pur cent for the whole
Waited States
JMany conclusions are drawn by theor
Sritf but the fact remains that farmers
-who have mude good in Nebraska have
iHwn drawn to other sections in re
jKMise to tlhi cheap land lure when
tlkey could have made handsome re
floras at less risk at home. This shift
Ikwr of the population of tho rural see-
Hiotis affects every industry

Nark H. Warner
Visits Here
Mark If. Warner, ono or tho former
editors of this paper, and one of Him
plolicois of the county, has been in the
city u few days. Mr. Warner settled
in this county in 1872.
His brother Joseph C. Warner was
the llrst real hotel man of tho city,
the builder of thd Valley house.
In Irio Mark, wlio was then a com
paratively young man, bouirht. the
Chief from C. L. Mather, the first own
er ami editor. Mr. Warner was wholly
without newspaper experience Ht the
time, lie had never set astick of type,
nor written anything more pretentious
than a letter. However, tho times did
not require a signal display of editorial
ability, and there was a competent
type-setter in tho olllce, known as
"C'urley" It did not take Mr. Warner
long to familiarize himself with the
business, and the Chief of those days
was not unworthy of its general his
tory. The purchase price of tho paper, at
that time was, wo are informed, 9.100.
In 1H77 Mr. Warner sold out to Mr
Thomas, and having married in the
meanwhile, went upon his farm south
of the river, and soon became one of
the leading f aimers of this vicinity.
His homestead was the land now own
ed by Mr. Barlow. In addition he
owned two or three adjoining quarters.
In 180.'! Mr. Warner removed to the
Kig Horn country where he has made
his homo ever since. He has served
the government as a forest ranger in
that part of Wyoming, and his own
particular locality as a county com
missioner. He is extensively interested In horses
and cattle, and it was a shipment of
cattle to Omaha that was tbe occasion
of his present visit to his old camping
grounds in Nebraska, where he was
gladly greeted by the old timers, who
knew him only to respect and love
