HITS WOMEN TEACHERS
LIVELY SALARY DEBATE.
Commissioner Stern Calls Their
The fight of the women teachers to g«t the same
salary as the men. gad the methods they are using
In endeavoring to accomplish their object, wero the
main topic of discussion at the rcectinK >■•■ the
Board of Education yesterday. There was a lively
discussion. Commissioner Mem characterized tho
action of the graduating: class teachers as "out
rogeous end unjust."
A resolution offered by Commissioner Nathan
Jonas started tb« debate. The resolution stated
that Inasmuch as the board had granted permission
to various teaohers' associations to use the board
room on the evening of February 21 to harmoniza
th« dtflerenoes existing among thorn in regard to a
proper salary schedule for" the entire teaching and
SBpw vising staff, It %ronld be only showing that the
board was cot antagonistic to the teachers by ap
pointing a committee to be present at this confer
Commission*? Donnelly, of Brooklyn, said that
the board vres cot taking a proper attitude in re
gard to tas teacbers. By officially ignoring them
the board 06*U6d the teachers to become indignant
and rebellious, he said.
John Greece, speaking as a member of the finance
committee, said he could aesure the board that
there was no margin of income on wliloh the
t-csj oould grant An increase to the teachers this
**I recognize the fiaaaolai condition of the board
aa> -well as Ma Greene, " replied Mr. Jonas, "but if
tot board «1U get behind some fair movement
someaMog will be aocomplivlied toward relieving
the ooxuttrton of affairs. The class teachers are
the cm* most la need of relief."
To OOt la fiuror of lauding th» teachers," said
QUJiUnHMliin i r Stern. "I used to be enthusiastic.
but I*VB given it up. Tills thing of X"ins to Albany
and detnaedtag legielatlon Is Interfering with the
Several— ent Ot the city and should be ped."
"I» Im Dot so very long ago when a committee of,
the gisduettcg olssa teachers eat in that very
anteroom and made an agreement with this board
wtitr«Jj(r they got a substantial Increase In salary.
Then, taking advantage of a mere technicality in
the agreement, they got every possible penny they
ooutd cut of the board, until to-day it has cost the
city ot Ksw Tork ever $200,000, and we are not
through with them yet.
"I denounce the action of lao graduating class
teachers as outrageous and unjust." continued Mr.
Stern, pounding the desk In front of him. "They
have taken advantage of every opportunity to
mulct the oity of New York," and for u.em to coma
here and demand another increase ib outrageous."
He continued In the seme vein for several min
utes, remarking that "the broader influence which
a. man has over a boy cannot b« exerted by a
woman." It was unanimously decided to amend
Mr. Jonas's resolution by making it optional with
the members of the b..mru whether they should
attend the conference of the teachers' associations
on February 21. The committee on bylaws made
a. report disapproving the McCarrea bill, which
provides equal salaries for the men and women
teachers. The board authorized the committee to
take ail proper means to cause Its defeat.
The eighth annual report of Superintendent .Max
well was submitted to the board, it chows that in
the entire city there are throe training schools, 19
high schools, 185 elementary schools, two truant
EChools and one nautical school, On September
80. 1&06, the number of children attending on port
time had increased to SO.-U7. At the name time a
year previous there were 76,485. In Brooklyn, at the
beginning of the present school year, 26 p«r cent
Of the pupils were on part time. Many of these
children are of foreign birth. Dr. Maxwell contends
that this condition Is due largely because of the
delay In building echoolhousest.
In hie report Dr. Maxwell makes several recom
mendations. He suggests that high "chooJ build
ings be kept open until 6 o'clock and until noon
on Saturday, and that teachers remain arid help
students who desire aid In their work. The super
intendent believes the greater part of the school
appropriations should pr> to Brooklyn und Queens.
He recommends that the city charter should bo
amended so as to place the purchase of files under
the direct control of the, Board of Kducatlon. Chil
dren with poor eyesight and whose parents cannot
afford tg buy glasses for them should ba supplied
VT the Board of Education. Dr. Maxwell thinks.
BANKER WINS SUIT.
Awarded Damages for Injuries Sus
tained on Ferryboat.
Judge Adams, in the "United States District Court,
yeeterday banded down a decision In the case of
Abraham Oppenhelm against the ferryboat Lacka
wanna, wherein the court awards the complainant
cne-third of the damages he sustained by reason
of having- fallen Into a coal hole In the forward
deck of the ferryboat last year.
Mr. Oppenheim, a banker, residing in The Hague,
Holland, arrived In New York on November 14,
1906. With bis sister, he took a carriage for Man
hattan. After the ferryboat left.th* Hoboken pier
the banker ogened the carriage door, stepped out
and fell Into the open coal hole, sustaining in
juries which led to h!9 claim of $25,0* damages.
At the trial of the case last summer Miss Elea
nor L. Wilson, a trained nuree, was a witness.
Bills for hotel entertainment, carriage drives, doc
tors, messengers, Dowers and wines were offered
Is evidence as a part of the expense sustained by
Mr. Oppenheim because of the injuries. The i.utkh
admitted that a part of die wines charged had been
consumed by ti;.: trained nurses, which Included
herself and a younger sister and a third young
The doctor of the railway company owning the
ferryboat nwore that all tee Injury they could
find on the banker was one small sore about the
size of a haJf dollar on one of his legs.
A decree of one-third damages Is nllowede by tbe
court with an order of reference. The latter means
that a referee will be appointed to take evidence
and determine exactly what damages the i leer,
■who Is now in The Hague, suffered. Such damages
as the referee finds Mr. Oppenbelm reasonably
suffered will be totalled and a Judgment for one
third that sum will be granted against the L;i<-ka

Hartford, Conn., Feb. 13. — "Are we poing to
act in the Interests of economy and pare down
appropriations, or are we going to give to every
body and everything, and bond the state to pay
the bills?" asked Dr. Hlggins. of Coventry, in
the House this afternoon. He mentioned the
appropriation of $1,000,000 for state roads, $63<>.
000 for the Norwich Insane Hospital and vari
ous other appropriations asked for this session,
■which, he said, aggregated $3,000,000. He said
that If these were made the state expenses would
exceed the revenue for the next two years by
more than $1,000,000. He was opposed to bond
ing the state, and hoped that the Legislature
would support the Governor and practise a wise
His plea was somewhat weakened by humor
ous remarks about the resolution he was dis
cussing, which called for an annual tax on
bachelors as a means of raising the possible
deficit. The resolution did not create the mer
riment he had evidently expected. He raised a
laugh, however, wben he said he had provided
that bachelors over forty-one years old, instead
of over forty, be chloroformed, because Speaker
TUson was forty-one, and "wished to serve out
his term without Its being; marred by either a
marriage or a funeral in which he was the chief
The resolution was ruled out as new business.

Robert Kelly Prentice, chairman of the transit
committee of the Republican County Committee,
yesterday received from President Orr of the Rapid
Transit Commission an answer to tho letter sent
by him questioning the legality of the proceedings
in connection with the proposition to advertise the

raised the point that Inasmuch as the , Supreme
Court commission bad not unerjulvocnlly approved

JR. ALBERT SHAW DISCUSSES "BOSSES."
Says Public Opinion Will Bring About
Change for Better in Politics.
Dr. Albert Shaw, Editor of "The Review of Re
views." gave a public lecture on "Practical Prob
lems In American Politics" In Havemeyer Hall.
Columbia University, yesterday After pointing out
the evils of the present "boss" system in politics
and th»- attempts of corporation? to control Ip^lh
latlon. Dr. Shaw paid that the remedy did not Ho
In a change In th^ present governmental pystem
such is Is advocated by the Socialists or other re
fornrj^r*. but In an awakening of public opinion.
This, he said, was fhown In the movement for the
prohibition of the contributions of corporations to
campalfrn funds and other new laws tending to
separate legislation from private Interests. Dr.
Rhaw thought that what he termed the oldtlme
freedom In American politics would In time be re
stored by this pressure of public opinion. Iff- said
that the Independent voter was the most Important
factor in American politics. In a Presidential elec
tion he said that a single ballot box in a stato like
New York might, because of th« size of the elec
toral vote, turn an entire election, and that the In
dependent voter, holding the balance of power,
could determine what this vote should be. The
power of corruption, he said, was shown In tho
campaign of UM. At thnt time. Dr. Shaw said,
greater corruption than now exists was present In
both parties. He looked on the ballot box reforms,
the separation of municipal from national elections
and the more direct control of th. election of Sen
ators in many states as the greatest evidences of

Washington. February 13.
ARMY LINEAL. LIST.— The War Department
views with marked disfavor the attempt which Is
being made In some Quarters in the military ser-
vice to effect a readjustment of the lineal list of
officers of tlie artillery, infantry and cavalry arms.
This proposed change in the position of certain
officers on the list is based on the fact that there
wag once abnormal promotion and ecfually unfair
stagnation In the old days when promotion was by
regiments. It was observed thnt regimental pro
motion operated us an injustice ttf officers, since
fellow classmen from West Point who entered the
service at the same time did not have an e<jual
<!;nnoe. and it often happened that an Officer might
be major while a man who was graduated a year
later at West Point was only a junior captain.
This is changed bo as to establish lin<Ml promotion
in the respective arms of the lino. The attempt to
go buck and correct the situation at this late day
would, of course, r&use demoralization in the mili
tary personnel, :n d would create a state of unrest
which In the end would Impair th.- efficiency of the
army. For this reason plans for the change of
position have, teen habitually denied, and th« War
Department will report adversely upon the bill
which has been Introduced, and which attempts to
accomplish the readjustment by statute.
NAVY MARKSMANSHIP TROPHIES. - The
Navy Department is engaged In selecting two mas
slve silver .-tips, each of which will cost about JCOO.
They are Intended as emblems to be presented to
ships the crews of which make a rrcord In the
small arms competition. There are about a dozen
samples of designs submitted from various manu
facturers, including several in Now York City. A
committee of naval officers is engaged in examin
ing the designs and will select Identical cups, one
for the Atlantic fleet and the other lor the Pacific
fleet. Into which the ships of the present Asiatic
fleet and Pacific squadron will bo shortly formed.
It is proposed to have these competitions annually,
that rot the ships of the Atlantic lleet nt Guan
tanamo and for the other ships at such places as
may be convenient. There may be some difficulty
in holding the contests for the vessels of the
Asiatic (It ct. hut it Is expected that this 'will !>.• ar
ranged so tiiet.- may !•« a free and complete com
petition. The cups will ii-> uaed as emblems <>f etn-
Clency and superiority, after the manner of the
troplii"s which are now presented to ships ot vari
ous class.s for their records in heavy gun firing,
it is considered that th© presentation of these
tups will stimulate marksmanship in the navy.
UNDESIRABLE SO!,DIERS.-There is to be an
Investigation of the method of Imposts punish
nu-nt upon enlisted man in the army. I'.ider tho
present system, which was Introduced by Lieuten
ant General Cltaffe* when lie was chief of staff,
it Is claimed that it la impossible to gel rid of
undesirable soldiers. The method was adopted for
th* reason that It seemed at one tmi-» altogether
too ••■>--. to discharge enlisted men. The President
has taken up tho mutter on the plea of some one
■who has written him on the subject, and who has
reported that, though the soldier may be ever so
unworthy, he cannot be separated from the mili
tary service, This Is an exaggeration, of course.
of the situation, but it la considered that It would
bo a profitable thin*: to tnveatlsate the method of
punishment as established by exneutive order,
with the possibility that there might be an Im
provement In this means of maintaining disci
