"The return of William F. Mc
Combs from Paris with the rejected
French ambassadorship on his hands
brings once more to tho front the
practical exclusion of high class
Americans from Important diplo
matic posts unless they are rich
men," flays tho New York Journal.
Mr. McCombB declined tho office on
the ground that ho could not afford
to hold it for the salary of $17,000
It is true we havo drawn exten
sively upon our rich men to represent
us in ambassadorial positions and
with few exceptions the nation has
been creditably roprosentod. Dut
we havo also, oven during the pres
ent administration, drawn upon meu
of limited means for such service.
It surely will not bo argued that
soma of tho distinguished scholars
recently sent abroad were selected
because of their financial circum
stances. If our nation's dignity and pres
tige can survlvo the notorious lack
of embassy houses abroad common
surato with bur position among tho
powora, Burely It can endure the ef
fects of an ambassadorship exclu
sively maintained 'on tho official sal-
'ary attaching. Perhaps If a few
Americans had not set some nptablo
examples of tho lavish display of
their wealth In foreign capitals this
question of income and oxpenso
might not be obtruding. Wo never

Inside of the Teachers' Contest.
STEnLINO. Neb., Nov. 15.-TO the Edi
tor of The Bee: I cannot rend you the
famous message, "We have met the enemy
and they are ours." that Oliver Perry
sent to Oenerat Harrison after his great
battle on Lake Eric because when we
met "the enemy" they would not keep
their promise long enough to stage a
square fight. I refer to the late contest
at the State Teachers' association.
I want to go Into the reason why the
"Insurgent" resolution was Introduced,
and, while dblng so, throw a little light
upon the workings of the "Invisible
power," or the controlling spirit in our
school affairs. There was a misunder
standing, and there Is yet In regard to
this matter, Those who fought for a
principle have been labeled Thomas men.
This fact does not worry me, as I would
rather be classed with Thomas than with
some ot those who are fighting him. The
act of dubbing the Insurgents Thomas
men makes good haltooa for the "ring
men," and withal rery pleasing to them;
but, regardless ot their claims, I want to
show the public that the movement which
hsd Its climax, for the present, at Omaha
last Friday, began to formally shape It
self Just after the announcement of the
stuffing of the enrolling list by the Lin
coln Commercial club a year ago, when
the executive committee returned over
11,000 to the club, and not, the spontan
eous combustion of the Thomas
affair, as they would have you
believe, The Thomas affair has been an
unfortunate one for these !;pedagoglcal
sluggers," as. It haa uncovered and has
lighted up the pathway the Insurgents
have been traveling the last year, and
we do not deny taking advantage of this
Incident to bring about that which we
havo been working for. The fact is wo
struck our landing sooner than we ex
pected, and I am perfectly happy over it
How did It happen that the resolution
was Introduced In the form that It was?
To be concise and to the point, tho reso
lution was the product of State Superin
tendent James E. Delsell'a pencil to sat
isfy the Insurgent forces, which were
bearing down upon him at this time with
a force, probably equal to the force
which wns brought to bear upon him
when he betrayed a friend by voting to
oust him without a hearing.
NowT let me go back to one year ago
when the association was In session and
seo what happened when Mr Delzell was
elected president and recall what may
be considered the first step of the reason
why the resolution was Introduced, that
Is, ono of the many acta of the ruling
The convention of the First district had
been called to elect, delegates for the
purpose of making nominations for the
offices, and the teachers had begun to
assemnie at the high school building to
attend the convention. Superintendent
Clark of Pawnee City, and I were visit
ing on the first floor, when one ot our
superintendent friend from the First dis
trict came up and' said, "Como on, boys.
lot's go up and beat the 'ring' out of the
delegation." We went to the convention
room, where we found our present deputy
state superintendent with a 'handful ot
written ballots and busily engaged In
distributing them to the teachers, and, aa
a matter ot course, I received one ot the
ballots. I waa Informed that It waa a
battle royal between the nbrmal schools.
with A. O. Thomas on one side, and W.
N. Delzell on the other, and never knew
any better until the nominations were
announced and found that It was brother
"Jim" Instead of brother Will that was
Our surprise came In the convention
when we found our friend a few minutes
after entering, with his sleeves rolled up
working for the "gang." I have been
Informed that his reward was a member,
ship In the Schoolmasters' club. I am not
able to vouch for the truthfulness of this
statement, but merely repeat rumored re
ports. Nevertheless, we found that con
vention of Intelligent men and women
using political methods which tho worst
ward "heelers" have discarded lonr nco.
The counting showed pretty much the
ring" sldedness of the vote, and when
the count was about half over I moved
that the "high five" be the delegates to
the convention, and the farce stopped,
and for this movo I apologised to our
worthy superintendent, as I did not know
I had inade n move against him.
The second step! Ever' time a superin
tendent or teacher dares to raise a hand
against this ruling power he Is taken In
hand by some one and honeyed enough
to make him feel better or Is taken over
entirely If his position Justifies It, ami
my case was no exception to the rule.
The following general session, in the
evening, gave them the opportunity.
While sitting In the auditorium with
others teachers waiting for th exercises
to begin. Superintendent Graham came
and asked tne, "Are you one of the
boys?" I replied, a far aa I know I J
was one of the boys. Then he Informed !
me that he would need me later on. The
announcement was made that the follow
ing were appointed tellers and asked to
come to the platform: Bodwell of flea
trice, Maya of Lincoln, two other men of
the same professional standing whose
namea I have forgotten, and Stewart of
Sterling. Now, it waa quite an honor,
I'll admit, for one of my caliber to be
lined up besides the prominent men of
the state. I Have studied Mr. Graham's
question time and again and I e no
other Interpretation of It than that the
'Invisible government" were trying to
sweeten me for what I said In the after
noon at the First district meeting. On
returning to the hotel after the general
session, I was Informed by a friend that
i inn oeen noonouDing with the wrong
gang during tho day. Yes, I had met A
O. Thorns. Frank Plfgex and a few o'h
ers. Waa there anything unusual In thts
particular action of my friend? VThe in
surgent part of the Nebraska teashers
term him th paid lackey ot the "ring."
Do I need to add two and two to get the
The next step In the move came on' the
announcement of the stuffing of the en
rolling list. The boys' conference waa In
session at Beatrice, and several superin
tendents ot southeastern Nebrtska talked
the matter over and held an experience
meeting, giving several actions of this
most famous invisible government, and
agreed to stand and fight for principle,
,"tters were Issued, asking those vhom
we though to be all right to atttnd a
meeting at Lincoln.
Superintendent Kuster of Johnson
county, and I, sent out these letters. Kus
ter writing the county superintendents.
At the Beatrice conference we thought
best not to connect the state superinten
dent (every man considered himself a
personal friend of Deliell and worked for
his recent election), with the move until
It had been formulated, eo we could ns'l ,
his support A slight mistake was made
when the letter waa sent to County
Superintendent Jackson, who carried It
to the state superintendent's office.
Knowing that the atate department had
cognizance of the meeting, and. In the
way they did, the gathering superinten
dents expected and were on the lookout
for representatives of the ring. We were
not disappointed, for two gentlemen, on
from Fremont and the other from Bea
trice, came to the Llndell hotel. These
two gentlemen being attaches of the state
superintendent' office, had a right to
be In Lincoln. They were, aa they an
nounced, attending to public business.
The conduct of these gentlemen gave
them away. One. especially, made a de
mand on me to know what I was doing In
Lincoln. The first demand not being an
wered to his satisfaction, he came to m
the second time In this way: "Stewart,
what are you doing In Lincoln, anyway?"
On this request I Informed the sentljman
that I was In Lincoln to attend a meet
ing. The next morning Superintendent
Clark of Pawnee City, and I met the two
gentlemen as they were leaving the din
ing room. They seemed to lie badly
worked up over the fact that there had
been a meeting of Nebraska teachers
and that they had not been Invltod. They
made the plea that they had been teach
ers of Nebraska for a number of years
and could not see any legitimate reason
why they should be slighted In a meeting
jik tnis one. superintendent Clark In
formed the gentlemen In a few well
chosen words that their color did not
look good and they were not of the class
or men wanted to advance our cause.
The meeting of the superintendents
(twenty In number) that night at the
i.inaeu notei terminated dirrerently
than most of the superintendent ex
pected. It resulted In a plan to bolter
our condition, to condemn any action
that tended toward "ring rule," to make
a fight for no one or aealnst anv one.
The keynoto of the meeting was, "That
proiessionai efficiency should be the sole
Standard for employment, asals-nment
promotion, demotion, dismissal and re
lease ot teachers. That the right ot
every teacher from the humblest to the
highest hould be equally recognized."
It was heralded from one end of the
state to the other that this waa an or
ganization ODDOSed to tha Rial. Tu)ian'
association, a Thomas organization, an
organization ror the benefit of Lincoln,
or an organization for the benefit of
Omaha Just a the case might help their
cause. The report came out from the
state superintendent' office that It waa a
Thomas organization for the reason that
Kuster of Johnson county did not havo
enough brains to get ur such a letter as
the one giving the Invitation to attend
the meeting. Superintendent Dalzell op
posed the organization at thl time, but
since then changed his mind. The or
ganization knowing Just what It was
doing Invited the state superintendent's
office for the second meeting and n. C,
King attonded. Why should we consult
the state department If we felt It our
duty to organize for mutual benefit?
From history we get It that the School
master' club did not.
During the session of the last legists
ture some of the county superintendents
asked that a law be passed for the re-Issuing-
of county certificates. The hear
ing before the legislative committee waa
held In' the state superintendent's office
with our present superintendent at one
end of the table, and hack of him a
unmber of educators, whose name do
not epell "Insurgehcy" In any senso ot
the word, opposing a law written in
plain simple English saying Just how a
county certificate should be Issued.
Even' teacher could understand this law.
Under this law a county superintendent
would not have to write In to the state
superintendent to find out If the cer
tificate was relssuable. In passing we
will state that this law originated tn
Johnson county and that If the state
superintendent's office will come down
with their fine comb they may find
more brains In Johnson county teachers
than they are aware of.
At the hearing before the legislative
committee fact were brought that a
city certificate had been Issued to get
support for tho city certificate measure;
that emergency certificates had run for
a period of two year. (These thing do
not happen during the present adminis
tration with due credit to our alinrln.
tendent). The fate of thl bill had been
decided before the hearing, but we went
through ao it though it had not and met
Indefinite postponement before the com
mittee, but was placed on the general
file the next day In the house, only to
loee out In the final rush of business at
the close of the session.
This bring us to the late session ot
the Teachers' association. The Thomas
