At u meeting ol the city couusel held
ou Tuesday evening, n communication
was mid, signed by a committee made
up or delegates from tho several llro
companies ol tho oily, suggesting that
tho council Inaugurate a movement by
which thu coming Fourth of duly, the
centennial birthday or our country,
shall bo celebrated lu a titling manner.
The communication asks all the the so
cieties and organisations or tho city to
remain at home, and that tho eelehratloti
be made a general ono, and also aks the
council tiVaid an much as possible lu mak
ing tho celebration a success. There Is
no doubt that such u demonstration In

and they should endeavor to bring the

Knuoit Itui.mi.v: I was astonished
this morning to see an article In the Itei..
t.r.iix styling "Phlladelphlans robbers
and thlcu'S" 1 am n Ph.ll.tdclphlan.and
ptoudortho fact; I have hundreds ot
relatives In that beautiful city, who aro
neither robbers nor thieve", It Is plain
to bo seen that the writer or the article Is
not a reader or the Philadelphia papers,
or he would know something more dell
nlto or tho great exposition. The prices
at the hotels have been limited to live
dollars a day; tho "dirty rcstaurantcrs"
Inside or the park, art to charge tho samo
as their establishments otiUldc, and all,
at !t limited price. Ilaekman, street cars
etc., are not to exceed n certain llxcd
price. As tor the admission feu to the
park, Phlladelphlans had nothing to do
with It, the city ceded to the U. S. gov
ernment the ground ou which the build
ings stand.atid all theaTangeinetits,pr!cc
or entrance, etc., aro made by the l.'. '.
Centennial Commission. "There Is a
feeling ot pride among Phlladelphlans In
respect to reimbursing the Federal gov

iler is becoming general that the Centen

to show how Philadelphia Is
determined to carry out her title of
brotherly Jove, and to arrange so that
sojourners within her walls may not only
have, lu American parlance, a good tlmo
during their stay, but also carry away
kindly memories. He shows there
are 127,000 houses lu that city, and Cen

M-aret 'WIIIIhiu" on I he KHiuimce.
Kditoii Bui.lktix : The serio-comic
drama of the "school question'1 ha now
Teaehed a point where your correspon
dent feels a desire to take up Ids pen.
The serious part I leave to "Wllhelm"
nud "W Ilhelmlna" who are earnest and
consistent, apparently working for what
they consider the best Interests of their
city. It Is to 'William," who, 1 fear. Is
taking advantage or the occasion
to satisfy n little personal spite,
that 1 propose to bond my genius
In tho piesent article. In the
llrst place, I object to tho writer of Sim
day's communication inuklng nu unpro
vokeil assault on a lady under the am-
utiscauooi "vuiiiam." in my younger
days, when more grammer was taught
by the "school-marms," and the newspa
pers were left to the men, I received very
decided Instructions on the subject of
It would not have been thought proper
lu those days for a "temale-lady" to bo
called "William," and thereby subjected
to tho vulgar familiarities or "Hilly" and
In the second place, what excuse can
our pull-back "William" oiler for trying
to hold up for deiiblng a lady who hns
carefully kept aloof irom this contro
versy, and, who during her two year's
stay in our midst, has shown herself
to bo unlet, dlguilled and retlued ; mo
lesting no one, but doing tier work lu so
thorough and satlstactory n manner as to
callfoith tho admiration and approbation
or all those citizens who realize that with
out education and retinlng influences tho
colored element will he u terror and dls
The only point mado against Miss Mc
llrlde is the statement that bhu has drawn
extra salary for work she' has not
done. TMi the members of tho
school board deny; for when MIsa
Mcllride desired them to call
the Normal class, that she might fullll
what she understood to be her contract
with Prot. Alvord, they told hot It was
not their understanding that she was un
der any pecuniary obligation to do more
than Luke charge of thu. colored schools,
and act as teacher hi tho grammar room
of the samo. They further assured her
tlmtsho had fully earned her salary.
And now let mu ask my Hweet "Wil
liam," who Is so disturbed about that
"extra $30," If she would bo willing to
take the extra color, extra odium, and all
the other disagreeable extras attached to
Miss MolS.'s position, and feel herself
moro than recompensed by tho oxtra
$H0 per month ?
"William" and tlio "iccent graduate"
have concluded to saddlo the poor youth
lu the "C" eluss with the "noun If;" hut
tho twenty or thirty persons In the room
at tho time the blunder was committed
can testify that tho (ruth Is as It was llrst
slated by "Wllliclmlna."
Wo aro rather tired or that example,
anyway, considering that it is only one
out or a multitude of egregious mistakes
mado since the opening of tho Normal,
by the 'recent" or soon-to-be graduates.
"William" would have us believe that
sho unqualifiedly approves or Prof. A.
and Ids employers. She even uses the
adjective "mean" In comment-
J ing on Wllhelmlim's way of
I handling them. And yet, listen to
what "William" says- -At the time
Prof A. was llrst employed his salary
was fixed by the (then) Hoard at $1,800;
a living, Ubtral ;Wer rrrn l,en when all
current expenses wen greatly in advance
ol what they now amP Sho has con
demned the friends she was pretending to
dcrend. Surely they must have oxclalmed
on reading her article, "Save us. not
from our enemies, but from our friends."
Hecoinlng eloquent "William'' says:
"He (Prof. A.) ns principal of our high
school, on an Increased salary Is the
eaiiio of the culminated wisdom and
Judgment of thu Hoard." We draw a
sigh or roller to know that the said wis
dom has reached tho culminated point;
Tor should It go on expanding and en
larging, our money tills would soon bo
In a dire state ol bankruptcy.
I conress that I have been inable to
get the meaning of nil tho words and
phrases that "William" has strung to
gether lu such confusion ; I call attention
to this sentence: "There Is no blame to
bo attached lor this to the lady herself, or
to Prof. A., either, for accepting all that
was olfered Aim." Now I protest that
Miss Mcll.dld not take all that was oiler
From "William's" stylo 1 should judge
that tho short article in Friday's Ilri.-
i.ktix was also from her pen. Notice
the conillcllng tenses in the opening sen
tence: "WllheIinIna"ai.-jfi (present)
an open letter to "Wllhehn," In which
she employed (past) tho following lan
guage : Wo fear that "smile that was
chased over the fair face of beauty" at
the mention ot Miss Melt, tor the prlnel
palshlp, was only a sardonic grin of envy.
I may be deemed ungallaiit In tho way
I have dealt with "William," but in car
rying out tho character or "Petruchlo,"
who, you know, was rather rough with
shrewish Kate, I will be all kindness
again when she manifests tho gentleness
and charity which are essentially tho
perquisites oriovely women.
