AliKXKUAL ilK-utlwIon of the
nature and binding force of
a party caucus, particular
ly of a caucus of Hepubll
ciin members of the legislature to se
lect a iiiTmlnec for United States son
iitiir. is proceeding In the pi ess of the
rtate, with opinions varying in reflec

dice. U'l ux. therefore, examine this
Interesting and timely subject Judic
ially. To begin wjtli, It may be set down
ns generally conceded that political
pa i ties Hie necessary to the orderly
and sustained operation of govern
ment. There Is no limit and should
lie no limit to the number of these
panics. The right of a citizen to Join
with other citizens In formation of a
new pally Is unchallengeable and
wholesome as a means of expressing
different shades of public opinion.
llut where sharp differences of opin
ion or of personal choice exist within
tho membership of a political party
and iecour.se to n new rarty is not
adopted, it Is plain that methods of
i pitching a conclusion must be taken
and those, by custom, are clearly de
fined. If the difference is over the
choice for nominee for an elective of
fice the party primary is utilized and
the choice of the largest number Is
legally entitled to have his name ap
pear on the ofllclal ballot as the regu
lar party nominee. Tho law does not
compel tlio.se who In the primaries
favored minority candidates to vote
at the ensuing election for the plural
ity's choice but it recognizes the right
of a plurality to determine party cre
dentials and there is a widely ob
served custom of viewing unfavorably
the citizen who, after participating in
a primal y and being falily outvoted,
thereupon proceeds to attack the plu
Where the ofllco to he filled is elec
tive by a legislature, as in the case of
the United States senatorship, tho law
Is entirely silent as to preliminary
methods of arriving at .i concurrence
of party .support but long-established
custom has ordained the party caucus,
hiih is a conference of the members
of a party to choose from among the
nominees placed before it one name
to bo pic-jented ns tho choice of the
whole paily. This has been found de
sirable to expedite the public business
by doing away with prolonged ballot
ing in Joint legislative cession. It cor
responds In principle to the party pri
mary or tho nominating convention
and Is a recognition cf the tight of
the majority In a given party to de
li i mine the policy and select the can
didates of that party.
Those ho, as in Pennsylvania at
fills time, denounce tho cuueus be-i-ius-c
knowing it to be in the control
of their opponents ofter In lieu of it
no plan of unifying party choice envo

that tho majority should bow to tho
mliiuity. Their alternative, of join
ing witli membeis of the opposition
paily to .lefeat the c-tpiepsed will of
the majority of their own party, Is
l evolutionary and If sanctioned would
Invite the complete destruction of
paity organization. .All organization
of party efloi t rests upon tho theory
of majority uile. That, also, is tho
foundation stone of American govern
ment. To hold that a minority may,
without sacrllice or party .standing

ENATOrt DANIEL of Vlr
gluiu Is credited with having
devised a means of disfran
chising Illiterate negroes
which will successfully evade the con
stitution of the United States, Tito
senator's proposition is to exempt
troni the Illiteracy duim all persons
from Virginia who served In any war.
This would let in all illiterate former
Cqnfedorat'Js und Federal soldloni,
wiilta and black. Tho number of tho
last tiamud class would be Insignifi
cant. Tho plan Is based upon laws
enacted by western states during tho
clyl war under which ull persons who
volunteered In tlio Federal army wen
tobe given the right of nuffrago. Tho
Knijllsli government many years ago
adopted a slmllnr policy toward si pro
scribed race In her dominions,
Whether this device would survive
a jo view before the Fedorul Supreme
court Is u question not to be answered
in advance, A Supreme court faith
ful to the spirit and Intent of tho
Federal charter would probably brand
It with the same disapproval be
llevod to be In walling for the
"itramlfathor clause" method of dls
franchlsoment In force In four nUtlet
of the South.
The singular tlilnir about the
Daniel proposition. Is that men of tho
hlfjh Intellectual and moral ohm-actor
of this distinguished senator front
Virginia can he found to advocate
tho drawing of a race line In permis
sible) Illiteracy. It Is conceded that In
VliRlnln, for example, there arc many
whites as Ignorant as the dumbest
negro. 'What Is dllllcult to under
stand Is why tho bettor sentiment of
tho Southern states should wish to
perpetuate the ballot In tho hands of
Illiterate whites, who are open to
every valid objection urged against
the Illiterate lifgros. If It fwottld
malt" Its restrictive test a fair one,
applicable Irrespective of race, criti
cism would be stilled.
Tho latest niovo of the 'insurgent"
faction to Inrlltute fake contests In
dose districts with tho hope of scar
ing tins elected member Into bolting
the tcnatoilnl caucus naturally In
vites retaliation and thcrefotu a big
crop of contests is to he expected.
They will not amount to much. And

ACCORDING to tho lecent lfi
port of the secretary of the
interior the general condition
of tho Indian wards of the
government has been satisfactory and
"a reasonable degree" of progress to
ward education has been made.
Exclusive of the few Indians In New
York state, there arc L'68,CS9 red men In
the United States, of whom SI.7B0 be
long to the five civilized tribes of In
dian territory, the Cboctaws, Chlcka
saws, Creeks. Cherokees and Semlnolcs.
The total number shows an increase of
353 over the previous year. The United
States government during the cunent
fiscal year will spend on these Indians
In various ways $S,S73,239.24, or a little
more than $33 apiece. Of this money a
third Is for Indian education, nearly a
third Is for fulfilling treaty stipulations
and the remainder for a variety of
purposes. The amount which actually
reaches the Indians through tho gov
ernment, after expenses of Indian ad
ministration are deducted, is about SC,
600,000 a year, to which maybe added
Sl.500,000 that the Indians themselves
earn In different ways. Thus It may
be said roughly that every Indian on
an average lias an Income of $30 a year,
rations included. Since March 4, 17S3,
the government lias expended $3fiS,3jS,
217.17 on the Indians, not counting the
cost of warfare and policing of (the In
In food the Indian costs tho govern
ment about a million and a tjuarter
dollars a year. Rations are issued regu
larly to C3.146 Indians at an average
eostof $21.40 percaplta; and to 12,370 old
and indigent Indians occasionally. The
law requires able-bodied male Indians
between IS and 43 years of ago to give
labor equivalent for rations and the
government is trying steadily to l educe
the free Issue of food and to encourage
The problem of Indian education Is
tho hard one to solve. Deducting sick
and disabled, there are about 34,000 In
dian children outside of the civilized
ttibes to be educated. Of these 28,431
were enrolled In some form of school
work last year, an increase over the
previous year of 1,249; and the average
attendance was 21,rliS, an increase of
1,046. A compulsory attendance law Is
advocated. The Indian school system
does not contemplate giving the In
dians what Is known as a "higher edu
cation." It aims to piovlde a training
which will prepare the Indian boy or
girl for the everyday life of tho aver
age' American citizen. Instruction is
mostly limited to what is usually
taught in tho common schools of the
country, with the addition of industrial
training In tho trades, agriculture, and
the domestic arts. The training of some
of the Indian tjhis as nurses Is also
being undertaken in a few of the
The Indian schools are of three gen
oral types, namely, government, con
tract and mission. The government
school accommodate nearly 90 per cent,
of all the Indian pupils in school at
tendance and they, In turn, are of three
kinds. Non-reservation schools are, as
a mle, the largest Institutions devoted
to Indian education, and are located off
the reservations and usually near cities
or populous districts, where the object
lessons of white clvillzatioa aie con
stantly presented to the pupils. Tho
three lnrgest and most familiar are at
Carlisle, Pa Phoenix, Ariz, and Law
rence, Kims., having, respectively, 1,000,
700, and 600 pupils. Then there are SI
boarding schools, averaging 200 In
capacity and located on the different
reservations. They stand as object les
sons among tho homes of tho Indian'.,
tho latter being permitted to visit their
children wherever possible, Tho agency
workshops nro co-ordinated with the
training received at tho schools. Finally
the government last year maintained
147 clay schools, which accommodate
30 to 40 pupils each and are usually
conducted by a man and his wife, who
have a garden, some stock, a few tools,
und furnish the pupils a noonday
luncheon. The boys gut the rudiments
of an Industrial education and tho girls
some lessons In cooking, sewing and
TJto government is doing wlmt It can
to make a man out of(I.o. nut truth
to tell, It Is not receiving much heln
from tho object of Its solicitude. Civil
ization to the Indian has been a bane.
The fact Hint last year tho value
of American exports exceeded tho
value of American Imports by $511,
541,$??, a sum almost equal to the en
tire cost of operating tho federal gov
ernment, and equivalent to upwaid of
$7 per capita for every man, woman
and child In tho United States, causes
wonder mi to how this balance of
trade is settled. That it is settled
somehow goes without buying. Tho
common belief is that IL is settled by
payments of fjelgrit and Interest to
forelguois, by money of Americans
spent abroad and by tho return for
cancellation of American securities
hold by foreigners but no definite In
formation upon tho subject exists, tt
Is therefore Interesting to note that
Secretary of tho Treasury Oago Is
devising a plan to collect and record
data which will reduce this matter
from conjecture to certainty. By so
doing ho will perform a very import

To Promote Jtarriage.
AN ACTJ TO promote marriage
Is before tho legislature of
North Carolina. It provides
that all male residents of
the slate who have attained the ng-i
ot 21 years nnd are unmarried shall
be declared bachelors and shall pny
a special tax of $10 for the first year
of their bachelorhood, which sum shall
bo doubled for ench successive year ot
their bachelorhood, to be collected by
the sheriffs of their respective coun
ties and turned Into the public school
fund ot tho state.
Tho bill further provides that it shall
bo tho duty of the police authorities
of the state t.j gather together all of
said bachelors nt least once in each
and every year in the market place
ot their respective cities and towns,
nnd march them through the princi
pal streets and compel them to sing
appropriate songs. Indicative of their
unfortunate condition as bachelors,
said songs to be composed by tho old
maids of the state.
This satirical measure probably will
not pass. I3ut It shows that the solons
of the South are disinclined to agree
with the pessimistic proposition, one
ro Insistently ntlirmod, that marriage
Is a failure. In this connection some
