PASSING OF MALE TEACHERS
Steadily Decrease in Number in tbe Rural
Ectoo.i in Nebraika.
MEANTIME SALARIES HAVE INCREASED
Rapid Increase la High School Gradu

la Greater New York Kda-r-atioaal
The county schoolmaster la fast passing
away, sya the Iilncoln Star, and In hla
atead la appearing;, more and more each
year, the country school ma'am. Super
intendent Fowler has Seen Investigating
the matter and finds that the percentage
of male school teachers In the state has
, decreased from 12 per cent lit 1871 to 19 per
cent In 1902. The decrease for 1903 ulll make
tho percentage for the year about 17. The
percentage has been falling since 1871 at the
rate of 1 per cent per year and In a few
years the schoolmaster will be a historical
memory only, as far as the country schools
Is concerned. The annual report from
thirty counties In the state, for 1903, show
that DCS male teachers are employed, there
were 661 In 1902. The number of women
teachers In these counties In 1903 were
2,650, In 1903 there are 2,600. The per
centage of women teachers Is most flatter
ing to the so-called sex, as educators.
During the same period salaries have
been on the Increase. In 1871 the average
monthly salary of men and women teachers
were 139.24 and 136.64 respectively.' - In
1890 they were $36.15 and 131.92. In ' 1891
thoy were $47.54 and $38.23 and In 1892 they
were $49.15 and $38.61. The highest average
wages paid men teachers In the several
counties of the state, In 1903, are $52.72 In
Brown county, $51.62 In Clay county, $56.86
In Dakota county, $53.43 In Dixon county,
$67.48 In Dodge county, $03.11 In Madison
county, $56.66 In Otoe county, $51.37 In
Pawnee county, $54.03 In Phelps county,
$53.14 In Saunders county, $59.42 In Seward
county, $50.82 In Stanton county, $02,78 In
Washington county, Dodge county, with
an average of $67.48, heads the list of good
salary-paying counties for male teachers.
Salaries for Women.
The highest average salaries paid women
teachers In any county, outside of the
cities. In 1903 Is $41.86, paid In Dodge county,
$40.48 in Otoe, $40.08 In Saunders. $39.44 In
Thurston, $38.78 In Butler, $38.65 In Stanton,
$38.37 In Washington, $38.13 In Madison.
The remarkable difference between the
salaries paid men and women teachers Is
largely the fault of tho women themselves.
The high schools of the state turn out
about 2,800 new teachers each year. These
young women are entirely unexperienced
and as a result work for almost nothing
the first year or two, to gain experience.
The lowest average paid women teachers
should be about M. This would be paid
were all the women teachers experienced,
but as they are not and will not stand out
for higher salaries aa will the men, they
cannot hope for some time to come to bet
ter their condition. Many experienced
women teachers are drawing from $65 to
$70 per month, but the number of those
who do not la so large that the showing
for statistical . purposes Is spoiled. When
the women teachers awake to the. realiza
tion of the tact that It Is their own fault
that they are drawing poor salaries things
will be better.
Women are the best teachers, and many
a woman teacher working for $33 per
month la more valuable to her school dis
trict than the man teacher In the adjoining
one, drawing $56 per month. A man has
not the patience with the little ones that Is
an absolute requirement of successful
teaching, and the day has passed when a
pugilist is required to preside over the
winter term at the little red school houre.
Women are driving the men from this
field of employment, and are conquering by
kindness, where formerly only brute force
would prevail. -

A GRADUATE'S BRILLIANT START
Made a Toschdows Selling; Pink Lem
onade and Frankfurter
The other day my friend, the Judge, told
me a story of a young man, a college
graduate, who, In his time, has exercised
enough financial Ingenuity to have made a
dozen fortunes,' yet he Is-now the hired
chauffeur of a wealthy New Yorker and
hasn't money enough to keep him a week
if he should lose his Job.
Here la an example of this young man's
quickness to see an opportunity and
shrewdness at taking advantage of It. On
the third day of July, a few years ago, he
found himself flat broke In Boston. Walk
ing along the street, wondering where his
next meal waa coming from he chanced to
see a line of men awaiting their turns to
reach a window where certain official look
ing papers were being passed out. From
one of the men In the line he learned that
these were permits for the selling of various
thing on the common during the exercises
to be held there next day. Bo the young
man took a place in the line and finally
reached the window. lie had no definite
Idea what he was going to do with a
permit, but time waa of no value to him,
and he might as well be there In line as
anywhere else. Besides, he vaguely
thought, the permit might turn out to be
worth something to somebody next day.
"What do you want to aellT" the official
at the window asked.
The young man had not thought of this.
He had supposed the permits were general,
so he had not chosen any specific line of
trade. But he had hla wits with him.
"Same as that last man," he answered
"Frankfurters and lemonade?
The permit was Issued to him and he
fell back to meditate on how he could turn
it into money enough to buy a glass of beer
and perhaps get a snack of lunch free. The
thought of beer reminded him of a saloon
keeper whom he knew slightly and hi
might care to buy the permit, especially
since the window waa now closed and no
more privileges were to be granted.
"Why don't you use It yourself?" the
saloon keeper asked.
"I haven't any money."
"Pshaw! Four dollars will buy all the
rolls and frankfurters and citric add you
need. I'll lend you that much."
So, the next day the college graduate
atood behind a table, which he had bor
rowed from the saloon, and bawled the vir
tues of his frankfurter aandwlches and
pink lemonade (a tubful of the latter had
coit him IS cents.)
Presently two boys came up and debated
between themselves how they would spend
the 10 cents they possessed whether they
would buy one sandwich and a glaaa of
lemonade or two sandwiches and let the
lemonade go. .
"I'll tell you what to do,", aald the Im
promptu frankfurter merchant. "You go
and get two more customers and I'll give
you a glaas of lemonade free with the two
sandwlchea you buy."
That was the first link of an endlers cha'n
which the college graduate forged out of
boys that day, for he made the same offer
to every pair of customers who were
brought to him. The result was that when
he had paid the $4 back to the siloon"
keeper that night, he still had more than
$40 in his pocket.
This Is only one of many experiences
which have Indicated that this young man
might be another "Napoleon of finance" if
he well, as the Judge significantly puts It,
'If he had a mind to be." Brooklyn Eagle.
ENMITIES OF GREAT MEN
'Why Salisbury and Disraeli Bitterly
Hated Each Other Long and
There could not have been two men
more fatally destined to dislike and an
tagonize each other than Lord Salisbury
and Disraeli, and this Is one of the ex
planations of the long and fierce quarrel
which separated them. Disraeli had hla
underlying prlnclplea; the Jewish love of
the grandiose naturally gave him a certain
affection for the gaud of Imperialism and
the glitter of wealth, tltlea and all the
other things that make the pageant of
life. But, outside this domain of thought,
he waa essentially an opportunist; aa they
would say In America, he kept his ear
close to the ground. And, therefore, when
the time came to make concessions to
democracy he did It with a very light
heart, with no sense of self-abasement and
also. It must be added, with a truer knowl
edge of the essentially conservative in
stincts of even the poorest of the English
working classes than his young opponent.
But Lord Robert Cecil, with his impetu
osity, his narrowness, his somewhat acrid
temper, his pride in the traditions of the
Cecils, his Inner leaning to myaticlam and
sacerdotalism In religion and the haughty
contempt of the scholar for the multitude
Lord Robert Cecil regarded all Such con
cessions aa nothing less than treachery
And hence when Disraeli reduced the
franchise he left the ministry of which
Disraeli waa the leading member and as
sailed the powerful chief of the conserva
tive party In -words of great violence In
speech and probably of even greater vio
lence by his pen. But the conservative
party could not displace Disraeli.
Hb waa at the head of the party, and
there he meant to atlck, and there was
nothing for Lord Salisbury but to submit
or remain forever outside the charmed cir
cle of the rulers of the empire. He did
submit In the end, but there were many
outbreaks of tho old ' feeling before the
final passing away of Disraeli settled the
struggle between the two men forever,
Curiously enough, the quarrel never was
more bitter than Immediately before It
was going to be finally composed. The
struggles in the cabinet of Lord Beacons-
field as Disraeli had become were very
fierce during all the Russo-Turktsh war.
and for a long time Lord Salisbury waa
credited with belonging to the party which
opposed the provocative and Turcophlla
policy of the head of the government.
London society at that moment was re
peating the phrase attributed to Lord Balls
bury: "I no longer hale this man; I
loathe him." A few months afterward
and Lord Salisbury waa foreign secretary
under Disraeli. Chicago Chronicle.

DAUNTS OF BOOTLEGGERS
Tricks" of Dii penaeri of Ceffia Varniih
Among Indian in the Southwest.
POOR L0 CAUGHT COMING AND GOING
Cheated While I nder the Infloence
of Dark Brown Dope Knormona
Trolls Realised from the
A staff eorreepondent of the St. Louis
OIobe-Democrat who Is looking Into official
crookedness In the Indian Territory, de
votes a chapter to the bootlegger trafflo
among ths Indians. Writing from Bapulpa,
I. T., he says:
"In the mans of charges which are al
ways being forwarded to Washington from
this part of the country, the one that
'bootlegging' Is being carried on appears
the most frequently. 'Bootlegging' is the
term applied to the surreptitious selling of
liquor in the territory, and grows out of
the fact that many of the itinerant ven
ders who sell whisky to whoever wants to
buy, carry It about the country In the less
of high-top boots and sell It out In pint
or quart bottles, as called for. That Is, a
few years ago, the illicit traffic- was car
ried on In that way. Of late the 'boot
logger' Is giving himself more airs and
adapting himself to progress in his busi
ness. Now he carries very often a tele
scope grip. In which ho can stow away
a great many pint and quart bottles of
villainous whisky, costing htm next to
nothing, but which ho sells to his victims
at the moat exorbitant prices. One dollar
for a pint and $2 for a quart of the most
malodorous bug juice is the market price.
The 'bootlegger' who had fitted out the ex
pedition on the 'Frisco train had sold the
fighting men for somewhere from $15 to
$20, what had cost lilm less thnn $5. Tho
broken noses and blackened eyes which
came with It, or soon after It. he threw
in gratis. The profits of the illicit trafflo
are enormous, for It is plainly to be seen
that the trafflo is growing, and that it Is
already much greater In proportions than
It was two or three years ago.
This Is an undeniable fact. The fact
itself Is made the basis of one of the most
serious charges wrflch have been made
against the administration of territorial af
fairs at this time. It must be conceded
that, if the Indian can be cheated at all,
the thing muBt be done when he Is drunk.
Take him sober, and the average Indian
can take care of himself with the paleface,
even in a horse trade, which is saying
about all that can be said as to his busi
ness capabilities. Trading in land calls
for leas of perspicacity and shrewdness.
Even the full bloods have a native cun
ning which makes them "matches for the
most subtle white citizen, as long as they
are In possession of their faculties. The
weakness of all of the Indians, full blood
or quarter, eighth or even sixteenth, is the
thirst for the firewater. If tho Indian Is
to be protected against spallation It Is clear
that he must bo protected against the
'bootlegger.' Keep whisky out of his reah
and he can take care of. himself.
"This is a more difficult task now than
ever before. There are more 'bootleggers'
now to be met with than ever before In the
history of the country. In fact, they may
be said to swarm in sections where the red
man most does congregate, but that they
do not confine themselves to such districts
Is a very patent fact in the case. They
are to be met with everywhere. A man
carrying a telescope grip falls naturally
under suspicion, and In tho majority of
cases not unjustly. The ham canvas coat,
yellow, long of tall and wide of propor
tion. Is equally an object of suspicion, and
particularly if the pockets bulge out pro
tuberantly. There are more ham canvas
coats to be met In the Indian Territory
than In any other quarter of the world.
Sixteen of them were counted in VInlta In
less than two blocks Monday. Monday was
a rainy day, but the fact docs not wholly
account for the ham canvas coat being so
much the fashion In the Indian Territory."
Chief Deputy Hubbard of United States
Marshal Bennett's office said that one cause
of the increase in bootlegging of late years
Is the ease with which the bootlegger cm
get his stuff. Formerly it was as hard for
him to smuggle contraband whisky Into the
territory, anywhere along the border line,
as It ia for the smugglers to run a frontier
line anywhere in the world. When a lot of
the stuff got Into the country It nover
stayed long. Oklahoma Territory was or
ganized, everything there was run for quite
while on the temperance basis, and there
was not much trouble from that source.
After the Sao and Fox and Shawnee lands
came into the market the danger Increased,
for these lands lay Immediately west of the
Indian Territory, and it was easy to see
that after a few live towns were founded
In the new country tho opportunities of the
bootleggers for getting their contraband
goods close at hand and bringing them in,
would be vastly increased.
The towns in Oklahoma appear to be the
baae of supplies for the bootleggers. One of
these la Stroud. The other is Shawnee.
Shawnee is one of the llvest towns In Okla
homa. It la wide open in every senre of the
word. It is there the Indian Territory boot
legger goes to replenish his stocks. The
Shawnee raloonkeepera usually carry large
atocks of the peculiar brand of whisky that
a bootlegger wants for his trade. They
have better lines of goods, but thebrands
the bootlegger wants and la always calling
for are always in stock in some of the
saloons at Shawnee.
"You can see," said Mr. Hubbard, "a
procession of men coming out of Shawnee
some days, with telescope grips. You
might take It for a tourist party if you did
not know what it Is they are carrying.
They slip quietly over, and get In to dif
ferent parts of the territory and do the
business they are prepared for. Some of
them will only take out two or three bottles
at a time after they have reached the place
where they want to sell their goods. There
haa been a man In Muskogee who has made
It a practice to come downtown every morn
ing with to battles, one In each of his
podtets. It he sell nothing more than these
two his profits make a fair day's wages.
The likelihood is that he sells out his first
stock long before noon and goes back home
after more. A few of them will fill a trunk
at one visit to a saloon in Shawnee or
Stroud and then they ran make a wider
circuit before they have to go back for a
new stock. Every drop they sell is like
that sold to tbe men on the railroad train
of which you apeak. Aa fot'tha Indians,
they will part with anything. they have to
get the damnnble stuff. All that they ask
of It Is that It shall be hot and produce an
exhilaration. Well. It is certainly hot
enough for all purposes. But the degree of
the exhilaration is always more pronounced
than Its duration."
Kills of the Bstalnrss.
District Attorney Mellette 'agreed with
Deputy Marshal Hubbard that the evil was
one which would seriously Interfere with
the settlement of the country. on a basis of
full and exact Justice to the Indian. "Prac
tically all of my time," said he, "Is taken
up with the work of prosecuting such cases.
While an Increase In the, number of cases Is
shown by the dockets of the courts I do
not think that the percentage of cases to
ward the total population of the territory
is as great now as formerly
Deputy Hubbard gave some official figures
showing the cjurt records. There are now
twenty bootleggers In Jail at Muskogee.
This number, however, is but a small part
of the total number of men arrested for
buoikgglrig within the last few months and
who have not yet been tried on the charge.
It was the opinion of the deputy that more
than one-half of the cases now docketed
for trial are of persons charged with Illicit
sales of llauor In the territory. "All of
these sre not bootleKsers." ssid he. "Last
Saturday myself and District Attorney Mel
lette and several deputiee went over to
Waggoner, where he knew a Joint ' waa
bring operated under the mask of a drug
store. There waa a little storeroom In
front, containing no stock to speak of, but
In a room about 11x12, Immediately in the
rear of the front room, we found a very
full stock of liquors, concerlng the quantity
of which more could be said .than of the
"ro the penalties against the dealers In
this Illicit traffic severe, or are they en
forced to the limit?" Mr. Hubbard waa
"The extreme sentence la five years," said
"And has it ever -been Imposed!"
Getting OAT Easily.
"Oh, yes. In several cases, and particu
larly in those of old offenders who have
been frequently punished In a milder way
without putting an end to their offenses.
Very frequently the Imposition of a sen
tence of confinement for a year and a day
Is Imposed. We have sent many men to
the prison at leaven worth, and only a
few of those who have gone there and
served a term have come back here and
gone into the business again. But there
are alwaya new men coming into it. The
prollts in it are so great that men are
tempted to take the risks of getting caught
and sent for a term to the Leavenworth
prison If they can only stay In the business
for a few months. Of course, the Increase
In population Is adding to tbe demand for
wet goods, and the opportunities for
quickly disposing of even the meanest kind
of whisky are greater now than they have
ever been. There will naturally be some
Increase In the traffic, but whether It la
out of proportion with the Increase in popu
lation Is a question In the case. ' I doubt
If it Is even equal to the Increase In the
number of percentages."
A part of the wprk of Examiner Leigh
Chalmers In the northern district is look
ing Into the charges of collusion between
the officers and the violators of the law
against tbe liquor trafflo. Marshal Bennett,
against whom soma of these charges have
been made, Is In Colorado for a restoration
of his health, which is badly Impaired. He
has written to Mr. Hubbard, his chief
deputy, directing him to place the -books
and all of the records of the office at the
disposal of the persons making the Investi
gation. "I have nothing to withhold." he
said to Mr. Hubbard,, in a private letter
written for hla guidance, "but shall remain
here as long as I at first contemplated,
confident that you will be able to afford
all of the Information necessary, or which
anyone can desire.".
Examiner Chalmers has been here for
several days. While his Investigations hive
followed, mainly, the lined of land office
work, they have also Included the illicit
traffic In liquors aa an element In the
policy of robbing the Indian of his land.
He has given some Intimations to the effect
that the illicit traffic shtfuld be completely
suppressed, at whatever cost to the govern
ment In deputy hire and court expenres,
until the land is all disposed of or put In
a way where the Indian cannot be deprived
of It without a fair return.
