A special meeting of tho board of education
was held last evening, when the following gen
tlemen answered to their names: Dr Hagan,
J. Thomson, R. 0 Sweeny, 0 0 Oullen, 0
D. Kerr, Geo. Benz, G. Haas, Albert Scbef
tr A. G. Manaon and the president, Dr. Mur
Mr. Kerr said that the president was requested
to call the board together to make inquiry into
the charges made aguinst the Bcbools in some
of the newspapers. If the charges are true,
there ia something radically wrong, and he
(Kerr) thought the board should make a thor
ough investigation. had as an inspector
nwle himself thoroughly acquainted with
the working of the schools, and he had
no hesitation in saying that the
charges are unqalifiedly false. The charres of
immorality, of incompetency and general re-
troTt ssion arc infamous slanders. referred
particularly to articles in the Pioneer Press,
which that"gentleman read, regretting that the
charges were not openly madeit was unman
ly and cowardly to make defamatory charges
in this way. Th articles were ''Our School
Superintendentshall there be a change," and
an editorial in the same paper. Mr. Kerr said
if those things are true tho board would not
*be doing its duty if it did not make a thorough
investigation. He went to the editor and
thought he was honest in what he wrote. Mr.
Kerr told the editor that he thought those
making tho statements bhould come forward
and give the evidence upon which they based
their charges. said also that these
people had Stated that the superintendent had
taken a bribe of $15 for appointment to a po
sition in the public school. (Kerr) said to
the editor that he knew and he would pledge
hia honor that not a member of the board would
vote for Mr. Burriugton remaining in office if
the charge was true. vras also told that in
the examination of Mr. Sayles' conduct before
tho board, a Mr. Boyce was sent for. and his
influence was used to keep him in the schools.
Mr. S. Smith, a book agent, called on him
(Kerr) and said that he had been told that Mr.
Tousley of Minneapolis and a certain teacher
in the citv had said Mr. Burrington did not
understand the subjects in the curriculum of
the schools. Mr. Kerr asked him to put his
charges into form and he would bring
them before the board, but he had
not heard from him since. But in Monday's
paper another article was published in the
form of a lettc addressed to the board, which
the gentleman read. I was signed by three
Mr. Kerr said he did not take the unpleasant
task on himself with desire on his part, but
rather with reluctance, bnt he thought these
iuunendos should be slopped, and he did not
thin! tho board should be forced to act upon
evidence of cowardly,s neaking, backbiters who
were ashamed and afraid to come forward and
make the charges openly. Mr. Kerr then an a
lyzed the charges and said he took the oppor
tunity to visit the public schools to see if it
was true that the gentleman who wrote that
article had visited, as he stated he had for a
month past, and he found that that
gentleman had never visited the
schools bnt once, and that was
the school in which his children are tanght.and
then he expressed himself satisfied entirely
with what he saw. Mr. Kerr held i hat a man
who will publish defamatory matter without
knowing of its truth is equally guilty with him
who knowingly states that which is false. If
the gentleman had been to the schools as often
as he had gone to the newspapers he could
never make those statements. Referring to the
charKejthat the schools have been deteriotating,
Mr. Kerr read in refutation the report of a com
mittee of the ohambT of commerce made in
O'nly, 1877, which spoke most enlogistically of
tho condition of the schools. Th committee
con-isted of W. L. Wilson. It. Breed, Win.
Banning, E. S. Thomas, EI. M. Smyth.
The speaker thought these gentlemen's re
port should be at least uf equal force, as alle
gations made by a man who had not been in
the schools a single day and is a stranger.
Mr. President thought if no investigation
was to be made the board had better resign.
thought it best to demand the name of the
writer and Bummon the man before the board
to substantiate the fharges.
Mr. Benz said the publications were an in
sult to the whole board. The language WAR
hiirhly improper as from a gentleman to gen
tlemen. The statements he had no doubt were
as f.ilse as they were insulting.
S.ipedntenclant B.irrington said the
meeting was called at his own
earnest request, so that he might
ask the board to make a full and thorough in
vestigation, and if the slightest taint remained
he hoped the board would sever their connec
tion at once without waiting for the time of a
re-election. thought it due him. the teach
ers and the board to have a full investigation.
The president said if one uf those charges
were true he would vote to discharge Mr. Bur
rington at once.
Mr. Thomson said in justice to the superin
tendent he could refute one of the charges.
was one of the investigating committee into
Mr. Sayles' conduct, and he knew the allega
tion that Mr. Boyce's influence was used in fa
vor of Mr. Sayles to be wholly untrue.
Mr. Scheffer moved for a committee of five
Mr. Kerr thought an investigation should be
made before the full board or some would say
that some book agent would us his influence.
Mr. Benz moved and Mr. Scheffer 8. conded
the following resolution:
Jiesoleed. That this board examine into the
charges preferred in tho Pio:iser Press by one
or more correspondents, and that the secretary
be requested to ascertain the authors, if possi
ble, and invite them appear before the board
at a convenient time to them to substantiate
The motion was unanimously carried.
Dr. Sweeny had one objection to the
investigation, BB it would be ak
in t'o much of an insignificant
crenture, utterly below contempt. The board
had known him for years, and know what he is.
It was explained to Mr. Sheeny that the al
legations were made by quite a different per
Mr. Scheffer next moved that the chamber of
commerce be asked to appoint a committee of
their honorable body to visit the public
After its being explained that the chamber of
commerco will not meet till Monday and the
schools close next week, Mr. Scheffer withdrew
his motion in favor of the following, by Dr.
fiexolved, That the board appoint a visiting
committee consisting of five citizens from each
ward and request them to visit the schools of
their respective districts, to make thorough
examinations as to discipline, method of teach
ing, and the progress made by the pupils in
their studies and roport to the board at the end
of the school year, the result of their examin
ation, together with such suggestions for the
in provement of the schools as they may see fit

Judge Fsge's Evidence Concluded"Wit
nesses on th Grand Jury, and Mollison
At the opening of the impeachment court
yesterday morning, the cross-examination of
Judge Page was continned by Mr. Clough at
great length and minuteness, covering the
charges embraced in the last seven articles and
the several specifications made to the tenth
article. Mr. Olough, in his cross-examination,
was very aggressive, and being given all the
latitude he desired, often slipped considerably
outside and beyond the bounds of legitimate
cross-questioning, The only exception in this
respect, was in reference to the Inginundson
charge, when Judge Page having denied any
knowledge of the proceedings at which Mr.
lngmundson was nominated treasurer, and at
which be made his speech as to the one
-man power," Mr. Clough introduced the
files of the Austin Register and the Austin Jie
publicart containing editorial articles and com
munications in reference to the prceedings of
that convention. One communication was
shown witness by Mr. Clough with the inquiry
if he either wro'te it or knew of its contents
or publication, to which witness answered pos
itively in the negative. Mr. Clough then pro
posed to introduce certain extracts of that let
ter in evidence, to which Mr. Davis made
objection, claiming that while counsel
bad determined to offer no objection to
the extraordinary course of cross-examination
entered upon, this was such an outrageous
violation of the rules of practice, that
they felt compelled to enter a protest.
Argument ensued between Messrs. Davis and
Clough, at the conclusion of which the ques
tion of admissibility was submitted to the
Senate, and it was denied, yeas 6, nays 25.
This little interruption settled BO" emphati
cally, Mr. Clough commenced upon the rela--
tioiiS existing between udge Page and Mr. lng
mundson prior to this convention, and so on
down to the proceedings growing out of the
alleged irregularities IU the office of Mr. lng
mundson. in which this already thrice-told tale
was repeated again, some pans of it several
times, the witness keeping to his direct evi
dence. When the point touching the informal
report of the grand jury was under considera
tion. Senator Nelson sent up a question in sub
Btanc: as follows: "If you did not read that
report how did you know it was informal
other than from its lack of being signed."
the question, Judge Page answered that he did
not say he had not read the report. What he
did say, and what he desired to be understood
was, that noticing its informality he only
glanced it over, so that its precise language
had not impressed itself upon his mind.
At this point, 12:30, the court took a recess
to 2 o'clock p. si.
The cross examination of Judge Page con
tinued until four o'clock yesterday afternoon,
when, after a few direct questions, he retired.
The next witness was Wm. Meighen wbo tes

and heard the charge to the grand jury. Did
not think the Mollison libel was a.luded to.
The judge only spoke in his usual tone of
voice. then described Mr. Mollison's con
duct when the indictment was presented sub
stantially the same as the other witnesses. The
Senate then adjourned.
