HIS TELLING BLOWS.
Allegheny's School Superintendent
Strikes al Manual Training
IX DEFENSE OF THE HIGH SCHOOL.
An Original and Instructive Official Report,
Published in Advance.
HOW PUBLIC OPINION PLAYS THE HOG
The forthcoming annual report of Super
intendent John Morrow, of the Allegheny
public schools, to the Board of Control, of
that city, will be of more than ordinary in
terest and importance, as its compiler
"strike from the shoulder" at -what he deems
to be an evil of exaggeration regarding the
manual training mania that is having its
run anions many patrons and friends of the
public schools. From advanced proofs of the
instructive and forcible report The Dis
patch is privileged to publish extracts,
and they are appended:
After an experience of rears in all trades of
public schools, the writer ought to be pardoned
for belierinc that he knows somethmc of their
merits and demerits, and for baring some fixed
notions as to the wisdom of the proposed
changes. The thoughtful people of the coun
try are putting forth their best efforts to settle,
if possible, in a satisfactory manner, the grave
questions gromng out of the widespread dis
turbances between capital and labor, and all
eyes seem to be turned to the public schools
for the solution of this vexed problem. Most
of the discussions I have read and heard on the
subject assume two things, first, that the public
schools throughout the country are measurably
responsible for the ills complained of, and sec
ondly.that a system of manual training in thoso
schools would prove a panacea for all the dis
tempers of the body politic.
WHO THE RIOTERS AKE.
As to the first of these assumptions, it should
only be necessary to call attention to the fact
that about 90 per cent of those who incite riots
and defy the authority of the country wero
never inside of a public school. Many of these
people are indeed strangers to our laws, insti
tutions and language. The public schools,
therefore, can in no sense be responsible for
In discussing the second statement, let us
clearly understand what evils are to be elimin
ated from the public schools by the introduc
tion of manual training. It is charged, first of
all, that the public schools, and especially tho
high schools, are "over-educating" the people;
that these institutions are "elevating th3 com
mon people above their station in life." It is
alleged, too, that the boys and girls who gradu
ate from the high schools, consider themselves
too good to work with their hands, that thev
regard labor as dishonorable and degrading
in short, that too much mental training is
breeding idleness and discontent all over our
Through the courtesy of a member of the In
dustrial Commission of Pennsylvania, which
met recently in Pittsburg. I was present, by in
vitation, to hear the discussions; and I regret
that the plea for manual training in the public
schools, maae by both the Chairman and attor
ney of the commission on that occasion, was
based largely on the assumed fact that the
high schools lift the common people up out of
their natural sphere, the sphere of manual
labor, and create in them a desire to live with
out work, which brines discontent and general
dissatitfaction with their condition in life.
AX IXTELLIGEiTT PEOTEST.
My protest against this depreciation of the
high schools was promptly met by the Chair
man, with the statement that only one in a
hundred thought as I did. It is not pleasant
to have such large odds against one, but it is
certainly more desirable be even alone and
right, than with the multitude and wrong. I
know more about the schools of our own city
than of those outside; and presuming that
what is trne " of our schools is largely
true of those in other places, I want
to call attention to a few points that
seem to have been overlooked by
those who seek to establish manual traininr in
the public schools for the purpose of correcting
the pernicious effects of so-called "over educa
tion." In the first place, less than 2 per cent of
the pupils who enter our public schools ever
finish the course, and less than 1 per cent of the
entire school population ever graduate from
the High School. Now, suppose all that has
been said against the High School to be true;
suppose all the graduates of the public schools
and high schools together arc educated into
worthlessness; at most it would only be one or
two out of every 100 of the school population,
a mere drop in the bucket. I am as much in
favor of manual training in the public schools
as any one, but I don't want the friends of this
measure to introduce it under false pretenses.
I plead that room shall not be made for it by
disparaging the very best class of young people
in the commumty, the graduates of the High
I have watched with interest and pleasure
the career of those who have gone through the
ward schools and finished the course in our
High School; and, after diligent inquiry, I can
not find one who is not doing welt They are
not afraid of work. Not one of them is lead
ing a dissolute or trifling life; but all, so far as
a uare ueen auie io learn, are engagea In some
respectable employment. The very
fact of their having struggled through the
Snblic schools, and up through tho High
chool is sufficient evidence that they are not
It is freely bnt regretfully admitted,however,
that there are hundreds of young men and
joung women everywhere who are leading
trifling and useless lives: but they are not grad
uates of the High School by any means. Jlost
of them were never able -to get half way
through the primary grades of the public
schools. No. it is
by every reasonable person that there are hun
dreds of young girls in our midst who go into
stores as cash girls and into factories of all
kinds to do light work. These 'unfortunate
children, get very little education of any kind
before entering upon such occupations. They
leave home early and come back, tired, at a l&te
hour in the evening, and are thus prevented
from becoming familiar with their mothers'
employment during the day. They learn the
work of the store or shop, but go uninstrncted
in the art of making a happy home.
Time passes: they become women and wives,
when the duties of the household, for the first
time, confront them. In this new relation they
are as helpless as children, everything is to
be learned; they do not know how to make
the simplest garment cannot patch a coat,
cannot bake a loaf of bread, or make a cup of
coffee fit to drink. They know nothing ubouf
economy or the thousand and one other things
that conduce to prosperity through the journey
of life. The establishment, therefore, of schools
where these neglected girls might learn econ
omy, and be instructed in sewing, cooking and
other domestic arts; and where boys might re
ceive a course in manual training, as already
indicated, would greatly ameliorate the condi
tion of numaniry.
Before concluding this topic, I must again
briefly advert to the delusive and dangerous
notion, that there is even a possibility of edu
cating people out of their sphere or station in
life. Men may discuss the condition of those
whom they are pleased to call the "common
people," but it is an almost unpardonable error
to speak of them as if they wero a social caste.
From the very nature of our institutions we
can have no such a thing as caste in this land of
liberty. It does seem incredible, that in the
nineteenth century, intelligent men can be
found advocating the despotic customs which
originated in conquest more than 1,1)00 years
Who in this age of progress has the right to
fix the condition in life, above which a man or
woman may not rise! Who has the right to
say that the boy who spends bis early life in
gathering, for the glue factory, the tainted
scraue about a tanjard shall not have an edu
cation because there is danger of raising him
above so lowly an employment? Who will sav
that the young man who chops cordwood and
splits rails should be so stinted in his knowl
edge as to bo fit only for that occupation?
Must the boy who drives a mule in front of a
canal boat be debarred of an education because
the fossil philosophers of bis time are afraid it
will elevate him above his vocation?
No! a person's sphere Is just what he makes
it. Any other view of this matter Is contra
to common sense, and is altogether out of har
mony with the civilization of the age.
.Let the friends, then, of industrial training
advocate its introduction into the public
schools, not as a remedy for the Imaginary mis
chief of "educating people out of their sphere,"
but because it will help on the grand work al
ready being done, and by quickemn g the crea
tive, constructive and executive faculties of
the children, will insure their success in any
sphere which may await them in after life.

Band labor in the public schools and high
school would be a grand thing for all classes of
children, but it would help those most who are
most aisposed to help themselves. Tiiat it
would inspire the boy or girl, however, with
a love for work, who has been reared in diso
bedience. Idleness, extravagance and frivolity
is a matter of very serious doubt: and this is
the real question which confronts the project
ors of manual training In the public schools.
Children who are taught industry, economy,
morality and obedience to rightful authority
at home will not need mnch manual training at
school. The hordes, however, who get little or
no schooling, and who are taught nothing good
at home, are the people to whom thepsendo
philanthropists and cheap orators of the coun
try should devote their energies. The gradu
ates of the high school in the mean time will
be able to take care of themselves.

opinion? If I may venture a definition, I should

then. If possible, see what public opinion on
this subject is. From my position in the schools
1 have opportunities of hearing many of the
criticisms upon them, a few of which 1 will
here relate, and the following are a fair sample:
Mr. A a representative merchant in our
city, employs many cash girls, who have never
cone third-way through the public schools.
Because these children do not know how to
spell the names of the different foreign and
domestic goods in his store, and because they
cannot tell him readily, using one of his own
problems, "how much is two times and a half
twelve and a half," bethinks there is some
thing out of joint in our system of education.
Mr. B., who is foreman of an extensive sys
tem of machine shops, is of the opinion that
the perfection of an education is the ability to
represent on paper any piece of mechanism
that mav be in the imagination that i ts ..
a boy should be able to draw accurately, in
perspective, all the parts of a complicated ma
chine, just as he sees It In his own mind.
Mr. C, an iron manufacturer, believes that
the greatest defect in tho public schools is
their neglect of the forces and elements in na
ture. He has had boys in his employ "who
were so crossly Ignorant that they did not
know the difference between a lump of iron
ore and one of copper ore."
Mr. D. actually refuses to send his children
to the public schools altogether, because the
religion of bis particular church is not taught,
and so we may go on indefinitely, getting opin
ions, and we shall find, after all, that public
opinion is little more than a heterogeneous
conglomeration of individual notions.
IS TWO SHOBT -WOBDS.
Public opinion, viewed from a different
standpoint, is qelftsh and unsafe. Many of
those who favor a scheme of industrial training
in the schools, do so under the belief that it
will benefit them in their particular line of
business. They seem to think of it solely in
relation to tho additional dollars it will yield.
They have the idea tbata sewing and cooking
school will make better house servants of the
girls, and that skill in the working of wood and
iron will, in most branches of industry, enhance
the money value of the boys.
However this may be, there are those who
are actuated by higher and better motives, in
advocating this measure. It will bo admitted

There's no funny business or any "canoodling" about this offer of ours;
it is perfectly legitimate and is carried out in the strictest, fairest and
most impartial manner. No matter who the man, woman or child is; no
matter what the purchase may be, if it be a twentieth sale (if so it will
be indicated by the sounding of a gong), the fortunate twentieth pur

This means what? Why that in order to reduce our stock to the

prices than ever heard of before and undersell every competing house
from 25 to 40 per cent In doing these thing3 a great concern like Ours

to imposition. Let us advise you:

What is more, buy here. Despite what other dealers say it is our busi
ness to see that we are not undersold just as much as it is for us to give

from competing stores that are run on the "get all you can principle."
