[tchrs institute]
     ...After dinner about 170 boarded the tug Triumph, and, at one o’clock, the
boat steamed out of the river and over the bar. The weather was delightful, the
sun shining, a very light breeze blowing, and not enough swell to make but
one or two sick. As the boat approached the rock where the sea lions were
they tumbled off into the water, swimming off and roaring at a tremendous
rate. After going out about eight miles, the tug steamed back into the river,
having been out not quite two hours. All enjoyed the trip extremely, and, as
there were a number of hours yet until the evening entertainment, the beach
was soon alive with strollers; some to get a view of the sea beach, some to
walk with their best girl, and others for no worthier object than to dig clams...

Alice CIinkenbesrd, L. A. Reed, Frank Weeks and Wm. Volkmar.  After
intermission Prof.Bunch told them success institute depended on their efforts
to enter freely in discussions. Prof Weeks, his methods of teaching
reading. Prof. McLean thought too much stress should not be placed on the
books to be used; tt children had been taught to read and read well with no
reader at all; had been taught reading fm a Child’s History and it was no
child’s history, either; had learned it fm the thicket of hard words found in the
Old Testament History , tt tchr must work for each individual in class. Oral
lessons introduced by G W Johnson, advantage in primary classes over old
methods.  After dinner, organization and govt of schools by F S Bunch.; no
tchr could govern a school who could not govern himself.  Nq  He believed
that mischief, the evil angel might be driven away by the good angel.  +   Ira

Ottorman [sic] empire, good descriptive powers. Up to this time, the work of
the institute had been one of uninterrupted success and delight, and, now, we
dislike very much to speak of anything in of a dissagreeable [sic] nature.
Some fifteen or twenty roughs, from different parts of the county, in the rear
of the hall, just as the speaker had reached the most interesting portion of his
discourse completely stopped the lecturer by stamping feet, clapping hands,
whistling, etc. We must say that the whole disturbance was shameful, a
disgrace to Bandon, and a gross insult to the institute and those who took part.
In justice to the people of Bandon however we might add that
the ring-leaders will be prosecuted and all such disturbers taught a wholesome
lesson. Frank Bunch in gave a recitation on bangs [as typed]] which was filled
with iron-clad statements and hard fisted arguments.[M. or????   meaning?? ] 
Prof. LaDee sang a specialty song, "Since Kate Learned how to Play."  The
professor was encored and sang a Dutch dialect song “Eukerem vas de Game”

laughable in the extreme and received much applause. Being encored he said
he would give the audience a [parody?] on “In a Prison Cell.” It was titled:
"The Silent Cell.” He gradually worked his way toward, the door and in a
moment he was gone and the audience were left to enjoy their self [sic] as best

[???]  Gammill   condit  RR??  Saying   Pr-50 CCH Sept 2, 1890
[vy lengthy article signed Lodi, addressed to] John Gammill. ]
I would rise and come to the van, with this assertion: When the labor question
is permitted to flow in an even channel uninterrupted by the rocks and shoals
of personal ambition, self interest and individual aggrandisement, it is the
grandest system under the dome of heaven. To understand its true sentiment a
man must be a co-worker with its varied arrangements, his hands must be
stained and his brow damp with the sweat of labor; no begloved and
bejeweled dignatary [ssic] has equal show with such a man in the law of labor;
no "favorite of fate in pleasures lot caressed" has any right to dictate terms of
life to a man of labor; no capitalist has any right to balance his money against
the mind and muscle of his penniless neighbor.   ...no railroad syndicate,
railroad king, sugar king, lumber king, or coal king has any right to wear a
crown -- claimed and won, usurpingly...    +   [cp]   [M. note  I didn't find any
previous mention of Gammill and labor politic.  Is he a rich man?]  [M 2004 
among other things, Gammill eventually worked for Graham or BH; does that
mean he thought of as tool of capitalists?]

Church religion politic? Nosler   Pr-50 CCH Sept 2, 1890 
[lengthy article called]  To the clergy, by W H Nosler, in which he says]
throughout Christ’s ministry he preached socialism, pure and unadulterated;
he taught us to bear one another’s burdens;  to the rich man he said: “Sell what
thou hast and give to the poor.... If Elder Wells [who preached in Meth  ch
Coq for services] and all other ministers of the Gospel would not stop to prove
such declarations as  that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners,”
but go on and preach the changing of present conditions, much more good
would be accomplished.  For instance, if they want less of ignorance let them
preach, universal education by the nation...
