Murphy, W illiam Barnes, etc. In substantiating th e above, we have hut to point to our neighbor, Steuben County, and the adm irable records of Democratic Senator Seel­ ey and Democratic Assemblyman Seely, both of whom succeeded. Re­ publicans, and who have not only voted against Tammany but haeve se­ cured everything th a t Steuben coun­ ty wanted. The voters-of Allegany county w an| something m ore substantial than the flabby ‘‘argum e n ts” advanced by the Cuba Patriot. Incidentally, th e voters are prepar­ ing to vote for Fred lAtchard, the m an for the place. DIDN’T EXPECT MUCH When the Republican leaders lof the county nominated Mr. Perry of Almond fo IMemher of Assembly, it^is hard to believe th a t they expect­ ed h e would be elected. Mr. Perry is la. poor vote-getter. In his own town, which in 1911 c a s t 160 Republi­ can votes against 153 Democratic, Mr. Perry was d efeated for Supervisor by B u rr W ard, the latter’s m ajority be­ ing over ninety votes. If Mr. P e rry couldn’t be elected Supervisor in his hom e town, how can he he expected to win for Mem­ ber of Assembly in Allegany County? Well, th e 'truth is, he isn’t expected to win. Populate Talks on Law ^ ^ A Regular Department of The News, in Which Many Knotty and Seldom Understood Legal Problems are Unraveled in a Simple Manner. These Talks are writtei^ by WALTER K. TOWERS, A. B., J. D., of the Michigan Bar. (Copyrighted 1913, by W.' K, Towers) es much diffienlty, iand in this the school board has a wide discretion, its action, unless clearly, unreason­ able and im proper, being final. These matters, are frequently regulated by state law. Health regulations may be legally’ imposed upon attendants at a pub­ lic school. T h e right to- require vac­ cination of all pupils is generally h eld to be within the legislative power, and children who are not vaccinated as required may be barred from the public sch'ool.s The Right to An, Education The American public school is un­ doubtedly one of our most Im p o rtant institutions. No branch -of ^ goven- m e n t comes more intim ately into contact with all of us, and so it is that affairs relating to public educa­ tion are of importance to alm ost ev­ ery person. Almost everywhere the government provides schools for its young citizens Education is- the function of the state,, and so it is the state th a t pro­ vides for the public schools. T h e leg­ islature enacts the laws which pro­ vide fo those schools and by which they are governed. The- school, dis­ trict is a political subdivision 'of the state, organized under state Jaw. One theory of the .public school is th a t a state provides schools in o rder th a t its citizens may be trained to become useful members of society, capable of being selfsupporting, prof­ itable members of th e community in­ stead of a burden to the state. It is further recognized th a t intellectual enlightenm ent is. .necessary if our democratic form of government is. to succeed. T h e future voter m u st be educated. And so it is th a t the state provides free schools, but further re- quies th a t residents within t\e school age attend school. Another theory of public instruction is th a t it is a sort of mutual benefit arrange­ ment by which all join together to share - th e e:^en s e and thus secure greater efficiency at a lower rela­ tive cost. But w hatever the theory of th e rea- {If a parent moves into a school dis- 'tric t for the school season and only for the purpose of allowing the child to attend school in th a t .district, the right will not be secured, and the ■child m ay be barred from school as a non-resident, or tuition may be charged. But, generally speaking, if th e parents move into the district for^other purposes, even though it he but a tem p orary residence during the school term , the child is regarded as a resident with th e right to attend the public school. It is possible for a child to secure a residence apart from his parents and if this occurs, the child has school rights^ in the district .of his residence. A child who comes into a school dis­ trict to m a k e a perm anent home with .a family living there, it being the inteiiti'On of his parents th a t he m ake a perm anent home there, secur­ es- school rights. -One do.es not secure a residence by coming into the dis­ trict to live with others temporarily, or simply for the purpose of attend­ ing school there. The school board may accept non-resident pupils o.n such term s as it may fix,—as. the payment of tuition—if this does not inteirfere with th e 'Other pupils, who being residents' of the district have th e first right to the school accomo­ dations of the district. Children of persons kept upon the county farm are usually held to he entitled to attend school in the dis­ trict where the farm is situated. But the law frequently rules against the right of orphans, or paupers at pub­ lic institutions to attend the public school in the district where the in- son for -the public school most par- ents desire th a t their children .attend j stittution is situated, especially where school, and a m a jority of children j funds are provided for the education probably appreciate the advantages of >of young inmates.f In some .of our EDITORIAL .REPUB'DICAN NOT NEEDED Allegany has had a Republican Member of Assembly for s.o long that some people., think it would be break­ ing one of the T e n Commandments to elect a Democrat to .the state, leg­ islature from this district 'Our w o rthy contemporary, the Cuba Patriot, published the following last week, fo.r Jack of something bet­ te r to say: “T h e Patriox believes th a t the peo­ ple of Allegany have -had enough of Tammany Hall methods, and govern­ m ent. They know th a t any Dem.ocrat elected to -the assembly m u st .either work with Tammany or be a none­ ntity at Albany. They know th a t Tam­ many methods are vicious, grafting, and oftentim es criminal. They know th a t the only way -to ■ th row off the^ Tammany yoke is to elect a Repub­ lican assembly. “■Let there he no uncertain- sound from old Allegany this fall. The P a t­ riot believes th a t the voters are so disgusted with Tammany th a t this county will roll up an old time major­ ity, not only for member of .assembly, but for the entire ticket.” Isn’t .the above quotation about th e most convincing argum ent that a person ever propounded? Doesn’t it glitter -as a gem of logic? W hile i t is so funh}* th a t it ought to he put in next num b er of “Life” and because of that, should not be given serious consideration. The New cannot refrain from making it ap­ pear a little funnier by passing this comment: If the way to throw off Tammany’s yoke” is by electing a Republican as­ semblyman, why in the -name of com­ mon sense -hasn’t the yoke been thrown off before? Does the Patriot mean that if Al­ legany’s representative is a Republi­ can, all wrongs will be righted, and if its representative is a Democrat ev­ ery thing will result in chaos? A little eight-year-old school hoy can ai^u e better than that., ALLtEGANY NEEDS AND WHLL’ HAVE A DEMOCRATIC ASSEMBLY 3kIAN— First, because the Republican rep- a*esen.tative J^om Allegany County has failed to truly represent the people of this comity on a num b er of im­ portant questions; Second, because the Republican candidate is a novice, — a, man who would SURELY be a “nonentity” at Albany. Third, because the Republican, ma­ chine at Albany to which, the Repub­ lican machine of Allegany as hitched is just as much responsible for the conditions at Albany at -the present time, asi is Tammany Hallv Fourth, beccause the Democratic What’s in a Name? The Damm famly, of world fame, bids fair to lose its renown by dis­ covery .of th e Hell family in the town of Farell, Pa., built by the United States Steel Corporaton. Members of the Hell family are not averse to- using their name in a busi­ ness way. The head of th e family, Conrad Hell, an ice cream manufact­ urer, .has signs reading;—^“Go to Hell for ice cream !” scattered through­ out the cjty. Another sign reads: “Ice cream from Hell is guaranteed pur^e and co.oling,” Still another h^ars the in s c r ip tio n :-“Have you been '.to Hell? I t’:s the coolest place in Farrell. W hen, a stranged enters Main street ,he is startled by a big bill­ board reading;—“Hell is here! Don’t miss the -place!” A block farther down- 'the 'street his sign will- be> encountered; “You will find everybody there on a hot day; Hel-l is always openn.” . The big sign which, however, at- 'tracts- th e most attention is in front of Hell’s .place of business. It 'repres­ ents a young couple eating ice cream and the young woman saying to her escort; “Hell for mine; always.” Election, Notice Notice 'is hereby given th a t th e gen­ eral election for the purpose of elect­ ing county, district and town officers will be .held in. .and for th e town of Independence at Firem an’s building, W hiitesville, N.

These privileges are open to all who are legally ent’tled to attend the schools and who- wish to do so. As has been before stated 'the school system is conducted by the state and so is within th e control of state law. So it is- th a t the right to attend school depends upon the laws passed by the legislature. Under the laws in force in most .of our states the right to aden-d the public school depends, prim arily -upon- residence. The resident child may attend .the public school without cost; the child who is not .a resident' may be refus­ ed entrance; or may be charged tui- ton. The- residence of th e child is generally th a t of his parent o guar­ dian. The residence necessary to se­ cure the right -to attend school need •not be a lega’ domicile, but any genu­ ine residence of ordinary permanence state law, and unless- their acts .are clearly unreasonable and prejudiced the courts will not interfere. The re­ dress of a parent whose child has been illegally barred from school is by a lega’ .remedy known as “man­ dam us.” A parent who finds it neces­ sary to. take such- steps to enforce his legal rights should consult a com petent attorney. A child cannot be barred from the schools altogether hecau-se of colo.r, hut separate schools may he provid­ ed if .the accomodations are equal. The age w'th-in which pupils may. or must, attend school is usually fixed by state law. Children have been barred from the. -public schools on the -ground .of immo'ral character even where no act evidencing this have been committed in school. Proven immorality is r-ecog ■nized by the law as a proper .cause for barring a child from .the. public schools, yet some states require the .evidences be- presented -during school hons before such action may be taken.

Hamlin, Bull Moose Lead­ er, Wants Progressive.s to Show Their Strength by Voting “Straight” Tickets, Hinting That Roosevelt May Run on Party's Ticket for Gov­ ernor Next Fall. The prediction by Chauncey J. Ham­ lin, one of the leaders of the Progres­ sive movement in W estern New York, that the Progressives would next year nominate and elect Theodore Roose­ velt governbr to he followed in 1916 by his election to the presidency, togeth­ er with the sending by Mr. Roosevelt of a letter to J. W. Murphy, a pomi- nent Republican lawyer of the 8th Judi­ cial District, who is chairman of the Non-Partisan Judiciary Committee, urging support for the Non-Partisan Judiciary Candidates, Dean Carlos C. Alden and Justice H e rbert P. Bissell (both having been nominated on the Democratic and Progressive tickets), has stirred the Progressives and Inde­ pendent Republicans to action. Probably no more forceful letter b|is ever been w ritten than the one which Mr. Roosevelt wrote on the judiciary, situation in the district prior to his departure for South America. It follows: THE OUTLOOK 287 Fourth Avenue NEW YORK. Office of THEODORE ROOSEVELT. October 3, 1913. Jas. W. Murphy, Esq., Non-Partisan Judiciary Campaign Committee, Fidelity Building, Buf­ falo, N. Y. Dear Sir:— I congratulate the eihzens of Buf­ falo and the people of the State that in the 8th Judicial D istrict they have the chance to vote for a man like Car­ los C. Alden. If I were in the 8th Judicial District I should of course support both Mr. Alden and Mr. Bis­ sell. But I happen to know so well the career of Mr. Alden that I wish to say a word about it. Mr. Alden has been Dean of the Buffalo Law School since 1904, in addition to being an ac­ tive partner in one of Buffalo’s lead­ ing law firms. He is the author of various legal books which are highly esteemed and widely used by the le­ gal profession. He rendered notable public service as legal adviser to Gov­ ernor Hughes, and he was also made chairman of the commission of State laws in 1910, a position which he still retains. But in addition to this professional training and experience, he has the type of mind which tends to justice rather than m ere legalism, and from the standpoint of the people it is of literally vital consequence that such men should be put on the bench. There could be no more fearless and independent man than Mr. Alden, and these qualities of fearlessness and in­ dependence he will carry with him on the bench. But he also will carry with him the broadest sympathy with and understanding of the needs of the people of this commonwealth, of the ‘ average man and the average woman, who make up the enormous majority of our people. I am glad that the Progressive party members within the district have practically recognized the principle of Non-Partisanship in selections for the judiciary. This is carrying out our National and State platforms. But I make an appeal for Dean Alden not merely to Progres­ sives but to the rank and file of both the old parties, to all good citizens who believe that it is of the highest importance to have on the bench men who in addition to personal integrity and entire fearlessness and independ­ ence also possess a thorough sense of responsibility to the people, and a thorough understanding of the needs of our great industrial civilization. Faithfully yours, Theodore Roosevelt. The receipt of the Roosevelt letter has stirred the Progressives to real activity in this district. In each elee- tion district the individual leaders are bending their best efforts to hold the tremendous vote cast for their tick­ et at the last election. Not only will this lead to the sweeping of many Progressive candidates Into office this year, but it will put them in a fair way to elect the entire state ticket next year. The Progressives a re very j emphatic in their declarations that it would be a severe blow to the Pro­ gressive movement if there ■was. any appreciable slump in the vote a t the coming election, and, therefore, they doubly welcome the appeal which former President Roosevelt ha^ madt for the splendid 'Non-Partisan Judi clary ticket, wliieh the Progressiret are supporting: in this district.
