I'PBMNTENDENT S T E T -SON'S
view of the folly of
loading upon the public school
com so a thousand and one
f tills and fancies, to the detiiment of
substantial instruction In the few but
mightily important fundamentals, Mich
as leading, writing, spelling and the
ability to do sums quickly and cor
lectly, is old-fashioned but eternally
Our schools tiy to tieat the pupil as
the countrvman tteated tlie holel

of fate. The lesult Is a form of mental
djepepsla, leMilting fiom a lot of
mincing and nibbling and not e.iougli
c itlng and mastication of good, solid
victuals Sticng men everywhere are
men ot simple tastes and limited topics
of knowledge rnusteied thoi oughl.v. The
pioduct ot the new-fangled Mhool idea
is like the shotgun loaded with biid
shot and scatleiing over a te.i-.uie
field, with only a iuHIIhb of tlie lcathri?
ot the object aimed at, compaied with
tlie lille that doesn't scatter but kills.
The scuttei-biain does well enough for
show putposes, but makes a decidedly
poor leli.inre in a time of stiess.
Another thought put forth by Mr.
Stetson that Is woith lepeating is tlie
need of moie outdoor .school woik. Per
il jps the bo5S get enough exeicise as it
is. Hut outdooi instruction means moie
than excuie. It means the ability to
ce things neai at liaiid and see them
iritelligeutlv. Digging in books or nib
bling at them doesn't shaipen the eye-s-ighl,
phsic.U or mental. It simply
loadfc a lot of law inateiial into the
biain, to be utilized as chance peimlts.
The beautie.s and wondeis and insplt

PatUi-on vctorcl when lie was hi
office the last time, and which were
enacted Into laws In Mattings' arid
Hlone's ndnilulslintlons. TIipic Is no de
mand for tho lepcul of nnv of them".
Pattlson would not dure to go on Hie
stump nml lu the face of the people. Jus.
tjfy the vetoes by advocating a lepcal.
The vetoes lu question were mistakes
that no man at tlie head of u gient
state like Pennsylvania uliould make.
. Foicniost among these bills Is the com
pulsory school attendance law. PattNou
vetoed two compulsoiy attendance nets
Hint of 1S01 and that of 1S9!. Whnn Pat
tlson wrotn Ills Hi. st veto of a compul
soiy atteiidnnte law, Connecticut, Mas
sachusetts. Maine, Now Hampshire,
Michigan. Tevns. Nevada, Cnllroinln,
New .Tcrsev .nd New York had nil made
the experiment, and In many oilier stnles
school super InteudPiits Imd urged such a
law. Hastings signed a compulsory at
tendance act In I8li, a measure lutro
diicod and championed bv a icldent of
this city, and Democrats and Republi
cans alike me glad that lie did o. Thoro
mo few voleis In Lackawanna couutv
who would, lr tliev could, undo the gieot
good that this legislation has wrought
among (lie children of tlie common peo
ple. Pattlson, in 191, also rtlsapptoved of a
bill providing for the payment of the
expcnsPH of school dliectois attending
tho election ot county supoilntendents.
AYIiat a niggardly policy that was for the
governor of Pennsylvania to puisne! The
benefits ot physical culture In large
cities, too, were twice kept fiom the
chlldieu of the schools by Paulson's veto
axe. In liOI, Governor Stone signed a
phvsical culture bill tor cities of the first
and .second class, and alt the cities af
fected by the act are heartily carrying
out lis piovlslon. Then, too. Smith's
Legislative Handbook was kept out of
the public schools by Pattlson. Two
years afteiwards, under Hastings,
Smull's Handbook was put into every
school, and now a vast fund ot informa
tion concerning national, state and locnl
government is accessible to the teachers
and the pupils. Smull's Handbook has
Information for the teacher that is as
indispensable to him as It Is to any other
pel sou employed m a public capacity.
Another illustiatioii of Pattlson's ever
slon to progress, was his elo of the act
urovldlng for the protection of tlie public
health. The doctors sav that science, ic
Inforced bv wholesome laws regulating
the public health, has taken avvav much
of their most piofltablc practice, namelv,
contagious diseases Kut the people of
Pennsylvania owe nothing to Governor
Pattlson foi tlie lessoning of the ra
vages of thcje fatal diseases. Title Jo
his Ideas of government, he held that
such trifling matteis, from cholera to
croup, should be left to the people of tlie
seveial municipalities and communities.
Hastings looked at the matter different
ly. He believed that tlie regulation of
the public health by the state Is good,
sound policy, and he was not afraid that
it would not meet with the approval ot
the people aftei It had been tried. Ho
signed Htihstantlullv tho same act In 1893
Who would dare asset t now that loports
of contagious diseases made ofllclally by
I lie doctors, placntds on the houses, dis
infectants, Isolation, speedy and private
burial, etc., should not be enforced by
the stiong arm of the state? Piobablj
Pattlson no one else.
The veto of the pure food act was one
more exnmple of Paulson's inos-b.ukcd
Democratic pirtisanslnp. He admitted
that it was, on the whole, a good thing
and In the Interest ot tlie public health
and sanitation, but because it was "a
needless Invasion of popular lights" and
compelled brewers to make their boor
pure with nothing but hops and barley
In it he withhold his signatuie. Again,
his Republican successoi. Hasting", had
tlie piogreslveness which Pattlson
lacked, and signed a pure food law. Pnt
tlson's foir that "the bill would work
far mote harm than good," has not been
leallzcil. He vetoed the soldiers' burial
bill on the poor gioimd that soldiprs from
outer siaies wonui runic utrie iu ue
bunod Hastings appioved the bill, and
It operates wpII.
The-.e aio merely a fpw of the many
mlst'ikes of Pattlson In offlce. They
could bo pardoned' If. as an olf.set. tho
public could credit him with nnv gieat
and substantial achievements. But what
and wheio ni e they? They ate not. This
fluent apostle of leform tinned his poli
tics over to William ". Harrltv, who cer
tnlnly Is not entitled to any linlo; and all
that thi'io is loft to icnilnd the public of
his piofcsslotiH in behalf of good govern
ment Is Ills voice, which is once moie
vocal with the old tune, and his prestige
as the foi ci miner of Deinocrnllo national
tiiiimpli, which tills year Is likely to do
hint moie harm than gcod.
