What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

THE REAL SESSION OPENED President Butler's Address a Masterly Discourse on the.Fruits of the Tree of Knowledge. Denver, July 9.—The #4th annual con- vention of the National EducationaP Association was opened this afternoon before two large audiences. The regu- lar meeting was at the Central Presby- terian church, where 4,000 persons were gathered, while 2,000 attended an over- flow at the high school building, and thousands more were turned away. It is asserted that’ the attendance is al- ready larger than at any previous meet- ing of the association, and many hun- dreds are arriving tonight. The work of the council of edfication was com- pleted today and the next three days will be devoted to the labors of general organization. Superintendent Aaron Gove of the Denver schools, ex-president of the as- sociation and chairman of the arrange- ments committee, called the meeting to order, and welcomed the convention. He was followed by Lieutenant Gover- nor Brush, Governor McIntyre being in St. Louis, and Mrs. A. J. Peavy, state superintendent of schools. Responses were made by Secretary Butler Shep- ard; Colonel Francis Parker, principal of the Cook county normal school, Chi- cago, and ex-Governor Northen of Geor-_ gia, who represents the cotton exposi- tion, and came to invite the teachers to attend it. Music was given by the Apollo Club. On motion of General John Eaton, ex-commissioner of edu- ration of the United States, a telegram of greeting was sent to Commissioner Harris and Professor Greenwood of Kansas City, now in Edinburgh. - Professor E. F. Hermans of Denver spoke on physical training, after which physical culture classes from the city schools, directed by their tutor, Profes- sor Jacob Schmitt, gav@ an exhibition. Notice was given. that constitutional amendments providing for popular vot- ted tomorrow. -The convention then ad- journed until 8 o’clock. ADDRESS OF PRESIDENT BUTLER “What Knowledge Is of Most Worth?” @ Subject Admirablv Handled. | At the evening session the church was filled. Dr. A. G. Lane of Chicago, vice president, presided. Nicholas Butler, president, gave his annual address: “What Knowledge Is of the Most Worth?” He spoke in part as follows: The question that I am asking—what knowledge is of most worth?—is a very old one, and the answers to it that have been handed down through, centuries are many and various. It. is a question that each age must put to itself, and answer from the standpoint of its deepest and widest knowledge. The wisest philoso- phers have always seen, more or less clearly, the far-reaching character of the question and the great importance of the answer. Socrates and Plato, Augustine and Aquinas, were under no illusions as to it; but often in later years the deeper questions relating to educational values have been either lost sight of entirely or very superficially dealt th. Bacon clothes in attractive axiomatic form some very crude judgments as to the relative worth of studies. Rousseau risks his rep- utation for sobriety of judgment in out- lining an educational program. Herbert Spencer turns aside for a moment from his life work to apotheosiz science in ed- ucation, although science is, by his own definition, only partially-unified know!l- edge. Whewell exalts mathematics in lan- guage only less extravagant than that in which Sir William Hamilton decries it. The very latest cry is that studies and intellectual exercises are valuable in pro- portion as they stimulate enlarged brain areas; thus making the appreciation of Shakspere, of Beethoven, and of Leonar- do da Vinci solely a function of the circu- lation of the blood. But to sciolists of this type philosophy and scinece can now e common an- swer. If it be true that spirit and reason rule. the universe, then the highest and most enduring knowledge is of the things of the spirit. That subtle sense of the beautiful and the sublime which accom- panies spiritual insight, and is part of it, is the highest achievement of which hu- manity is capable. This sense is typified, in’ various forms, in the verse of Dante and the prose outpourings of Thomas a Kempis, in the Sistine Madonna of Raph- ael, and in Mozart's Requiem. To develop this sense in education is the task of art and literature, to interpret it is the work of philosophy, and to nourish it the function of religion. The ways of approach to this géal are ¢ as many as there are human interests, they are all bound together in the bonds of a common origin and a common The attainment of it is true cul- ture, as Mr. Matthew Arnold has defined : “the acquainting ourselves with the bestthat has been known and said in the world, and thua,with the history of the human spirit.” Orie side of this truth was expressed by Schelling when he taught that nature is the embryonic life of spirit, and by Froe- “The rit of God rests in nature, lives and in —- is expressed in nature, is communicat by nature, is developed and cultivated in nature.” The controversy as to the ed- ucational value of science, so far, at least, as it concerns educational standards and ideals, is, then, an illusory one. It is a mimic war, with words alone as weapons,’ that is fought either to expel nature from education or to subordinate all else in ed- ucation to it. ‘ : We must enlarge, then, our conception ities, for humanity is broad- yoy we have hitherto sus- which would weloome g EE¥28 ie ; ‘| in connection with themselves these divisions of knowledge fall into an order of excellence as educa-- tional material that is determined by their respective relations to the development of the reflective reason. The application of this test must must inevitably lead us while honoring science and insisting upon its study, to place, above it the study of history, of literature, of art, and of insti- tutional life. But these studies may not for a moment be carried on without the study of nature or in neglect of it. ARE AFTER A DARING SMUGGLER Montreal Customs Officials Expect to Make an Important Arrest New York, July 8—A special dispatch from Montreal to the Evening Post says: -“The customs officials in this city expect to make an important arrest in a few day#’' the smuggling of Chinamen from Canada into the United States. During the last four months it is estimated by the authorities that. fully | 300 Chinamen have been smuggled across the lines at various places. The smug- glers have grown 80 bold and the oper- ations so extensive that the authorities at Washington decided on immediate ac- tion and sent 12 of. the shrewdest detect- ives in the. service to work up the case. During their sojourn of 10 days they have succeeded in locating not only the leader of the gang but have also found out the secret means of transportation. Last Wednesday it was learned that the cap- tain of a lumber boat in this port had ar- ranged with the smugglers to convey 14 Chinese from Soul, Quebec, to New York, provided they were delivered to him_near Soul islands, The captain succeeded in them off the track and sailed up the Richelieu river to Lake Champlain and thence to Troy, N. Y¥., where he landed the Chinamen, : FAVORS A’ POST ON THE SOUND Secretary of War Lamont Impressed With the Sites Offered. Washington, July 8.—It is stated.at the war department that both Secretary La- mont and General Schofield have made an inspection with a view to the selection of a military post on Puget sound. The secretary looked over the ground select- ed for the post at Spokane which was authorized by the military appropriation bill. This post can not be established without an order from the secretary. This is also true of the post on Puget sound. General Schofield is known to favor a post on the sound and he stopped at Tacoma today with a view to making an observa- tion of advantages offered for such a post. Seattle is also anxious for the post and considerable rivalry exists. Secretary Lamont has also discretionary power as to the location of this post and previous to his western trip he was not very much disposed to incur the expense of new posts in the Pacific northwest this year. m (VOMAN SENTENCED FOR CONTEMPT Refused to Tell the Whereabouts of Her Child on Order of the Dourt. Chicago, July, 8.—Mrs.’ Lizzie Cottier of Washington was today sentenced to six months in jai) for contempt of court in re- fusing to disclose the whereabouts of her daughter, Florence. Mrs. Cottier is the Washington stenographer who in 1888, af- ter placing her daughter in hiding told the Buffalo police that the child had been drowned. Her husband, Alonzo Cottier, a wealthy Chicagoan, had attempted dur- ing the hearing of the divorce case, to re- gain possession of the child and Mrs. Cot- tier was ordered by the court to tell where her daughter is in hiding. She dramatic- ally declared that she could not, no matter what the penalty, disclose her daughter’s whereabouts, as she believed that the girl would be injured should her father find her. Late “this afternoon Judge Payne granted an appeal in the case and Mrs. Cottier was released on bail, pend- ing a decision. MATERIALIZE SENSATION DIDN’T Assault and Battery Cases at Pullman Dism: Pullman, July 8.—Wesley Moore, a broth- er of Floyd L. Moore, who gained some notoriety in the Saddler divorce case, was arrested yesterday by Constable Bohmann on @ warrant sworn out by J. F. Thayer, a farmer living some miles from town, charging him with assaut. Moore was ar- raigned, and being unable to furnish bonds was locked up in the calaboose, where he still remains. The preliminary examination was held at 2 o’clock this af- ternoon. The trouble appears to have arisen because .Moore refused to leave Thayer's place without a settlement of his account, and when THayer insisted he be- came profane, abusive and threatening. Moore called for a jury trial, and upon advice of the prosecuting attorney the charge. was dismissed, with costs on the plaintiff. ARMS SENT TO THE CCEUR D’ALENES Governor . MeConuill Wishes to Be Pre- pared for Possible Trouble. Boise, July 8-Governor McConnell re- cently received advices indicating that trouble might occur in the Cpeur d’Alenes.

In response to a request, taking time by the forelock, he has sent 80 rifles and 6,000 rounds to the scene. Agjutant General Capwell has gone in charge of the shipment and will muster in a com- pany of militia, equipping them with these guns. Governgr McConnell hopes there will be no trouble, but he proposes to be prepared for any. emergency. A NOTORIOUS BURGLAR CAPTURED Bill Davis, With Many Aliases, Under Arrast in New York. New York, July &—William Davis alias Richard Bernard, alias Dick Davis, alias Martin, wanted in San Francisco for burg- lary, is under arrest here. He is one of the best known burglars in the west.

Walla Walla, July 7.—Henry Kelling, for years city clerk of this city, and one of the most prominent citizens of Walla Walla, died at 6 o'clock this evening, after & lingering illness. Mr. Kelling was born in Comanche Camp, Cal., in 1863, and came to Walla ‘Walla with his parents at an early age. He first came into public prominence in 1883, when he was elected city clerk, and has held that position continuously until his death. He has been prominent- ly. identified with every public improve- ment and demonstration in the city and county for 15 years, and was a man whose sterling integrity, generosity and capability made warm friends of every one with whom he came in contact. He was president of the Walla Walla Fire Association; a membcr of the Odd Fel-’ lows, Masons and Knights of Pythias; chairman of the democratic county cen- tral committee; a moving spirit in the Whitman Historical Society and Pion- eer Association. He had taken first rank asa statistician. He was a graphic and entertaining writer and his. work will be of great value to Walla Walla and the northwest. . The funeral will occur Tuesday and will be one of the most largely attended in the history of the city. Flags are flying at half-mast today. A peculiar situation has developed by the death of Mr. Kelling. He was a can- didate for re-election and it is conceded would have polled the largest vote tal- lied for him at any election. There were originally five candidates for the posi- tion, but all withdrew except one, Alex- ander McKay. The election occurs to- day and under ordinary circumstances MoKay: would have no opposition. M. M. Hart, however, has filed a petition with the proper authorities praying that his name be allowed to go before the voters as a candidate for the office of city cle’ In case it is allowed, there will be a close race between MeKay and Hart. Hart was one of the four men who withdrew originally from the race. GRAND- LODGE OF ELKS CONVENED Peace Negotiations Will Be Immediately Considered. Atlantic City, N.

A new plan of develop- ment has been decided upon and the chan- ces t the prospect will be rapidly de- velo; into a mine are highly flattering. When work was suspended last ter @ tunnel 490 feet in length had been driven on a small vein of coal, varying in thick- ness from 2 inches to three feet. Ap- parently the. main vein is some 60 feet down the hill from the tunnel, large crop- pings showing on the surface ,at that point. In the work now being p ited @ crosscut will begin at a point 300 feet from the tunnel’s entrance and proceed down the hill to tap the main vein. It is expected to findthisin 6 or 75 feet dis- tance. .When encountered and thorough- fly prospected a shaft will be sunk on the vein in the cross-cut tunnel, F.- A. Losecamp, postmaster and a prominent merchant of Leavenworth, is at the head of the company pushing this enterprise. ‘ Te property is located.two miles south- east of town, and has been examined by’ several experts in coal all of which have passed favorably upon the quality of the product, saying that all needed is to dem- onstrate a sufficient quantity. At one time the Spokane Gas Company tested a carload of this coal and‘ although The Spokesman-Review has never seen the company’s report, he has been told that it was all that could possibly be expected. From now on a double shift will be worked, and the main vein sought for in the cross-cut should be reached within % days. The depth vertically will crowd 200 feet and the owners think that by sinking a shaft about 200 or 300 feet deeper they should be enabled to determine some- what definitely as to the extent and value of their property.

San Francisco, July 9.—Special Assist- ant District Attorney McKissick, who has had charge of the suit against the Stan- ford estate for $15,000,000, brought by the government, received from Attorney Gen-- eral Harmon today telegraphic pervmis- sion to use his discretion in regard to fur- ther litigation in this case. Judge Mé¢Kissick said to an~Associated Press reporter: “I propose to stand on the original bill and not amend it. I shall ut the usual petition and prayer in the nited States circuit court to have an ap- peal granted me to the United States cir- cuit court of appeals. Unfortunately the latter court is about to adjourn until Oc- tober 1, but possibly a special session can be arranged. Both sides are eager to have the matter decided.

Governor McConnell Making All Prepar atious to Meet Any Emergeucy That May Arise. et Boise, July 9.—The arsenal of the Ida- ho militia at the sate house has the ap- pearance of war times. Guns and am- munition are being packed &nd shipped to the Coeur d’Alenes and every prepa- ‘ratt®ni “made to meet an emergency. Governor McConnell has received a message from Adjutant General Cap- well, who is in the north, stating that a company of 110 men had been mustered in at Wardner, and that 30 more would be mustered in in a few hours. The ad- jutant general adds: ‘The citizens are thoroughly in sympathy with law and order. The union men are trying to get an excursion on the llth, to bring to- gether as many as possible to celebrate the riots of 1892. If they succeed in get- ting a train, trouble is likely to ensue, but I think we can handle them with the men here.” Governor McConnell says it is hardly probable the Oregon Railway and Nav- igation Company will run any excur- sion trains on the Mullan branch on the llth, that company being as much in- terested in the prevention of trouble as any other doing business in the state. Arrangements have peen made for spe- cial trains to move the troops in case dif- ficulty occurs, TURKS KILL ANOTHER AMERICAN Refused to Recognize Passports; and Used Him so Roughly He Died.

GREAT COMBINE IN WINDOW GLASS Control of the Market Obtained and Prices to Go Up Anderson, Ind., July 9%.—The greatest combination the window glass industry has ever known was consummated last night. For some time past the price of glass has been as low as it was possible to make it, caused by strong competition. During the year just closed, 12 companies west of Pittsburg have refused to sell their product, storing in warehouses, while the remaining 19 plants west of Pittsburg have sold their glass. The 12 companied have 190,000 boxes of glass in the warehouses, while 19 companies have 000: boxes, which will be exhausted ina ple of weeks and then the com- bine will have the market in their own hands. A raise of % per cent. on window glass was agreed upon last night and af- ter the 10,000 boxes are disposed of the price will go still higher. ‘aie | FARMERS OBJECT TO RECEIVERS Judge Piper of Moscow Says No More Will Be Appointed.
