Nephew of Governor Makes
Charges Against Lunenburg
District Board.
SUPERINTENDENT INVOLVED
Official Summoned to Appear.
Pensioners Must Submit
to Examination.
Charges were made before the State
Board of Education, tu session at the
Cupitol yesterday, by Dr. Edwin M.
Mann against the trustees of Browns
Store School District, in I.uncnburg
County. Many papers wer? filed as
exhibits, and the specifications are
numerous.
In the accusations is involved isham '
T. Wilkinson, division school superin?
tendent of lojaasserg county, it is
staged ba> Or. Made*, and the charge is
corroborated by school teachers, that
the superintendent has failed to com?
ply with the provision of the school
law which retfuires him to visit every
school at least once a year, and, in
eounties with the number of schools
now in I^uneiiburg, twice a year.
After giving consideration to Dr.
Mann's charges, the board summoned
Mr. Wlllj as OS to appear before it at'
the next meeting and to make answer.
Bod Sanit?r; Condition*.
Apparently the most serious charge
made by Dr. Mann, is that the ttustees'
have failed to observe the law promul?
gated by the State Board of Health.
OJ the tifty-llve schoolliouscs in Lunen
barg County, asserts Dr. Maun, only
thlrbeea are properly equipped. Not
one of the twenty-rive colored schools
is equipped. J
The State Bosrd of Education gave
most of its time to consideration of
this problem, which it feels is most
serious. 1
It is stated that the question of
money is serious, and that it costs at
least $10 to a school to comply with
the demands of the health department, j
Realizing that the matter must be
dealt with, the hoard at last deter- j
mined that State school funds shall be
withheld from all counties which do
not comply with the law in this re?
gard within a reasonable time. By
this drastic method, all are expected
to coma to time.

All the members of the board were
present save Superintendent Eggles
ton ani' Attor-General Williams.
The resignation of Hugh S. Bird as
superintendent of the schools of Fred- ;
oricksburg was accepted, aftdi E. F. '
Birckhead, Jr.. principal 0f that city's
school, was elected to succeed Mm for'
the uncxpiircd term.
There a-as some discussion of ttc,
pension law. Castor the new act, there

tion was adopted that as each pen- .

Dr. Mann, who is a nephew of Gov?

parties had a good time at the ex?
pense of the school funds.
Again, says Dr. Mann, the law was
violated which forbids any school of?
ficial having an interest In a school
contract. lie says, and claims to
prove by a letter, that Thomas Ti?
idalc, the contractor for the Kenbrldge
school, bought some weather boarding
from Willie Bridge-forth, a member ot
th? trustees, ami that carpenter work
was done by Collln Bag'ey, clerk ot
the board
Behind With Moaey Dree State.
On April 25 of this year, according
to a letter from Second Audltot Ro?.;
well Page to Dr. Mann, two of the
districts of I.unenburg County were
behind on payments of principal and
interest of money borrowed) from the
literary fund for school purposes. Mr.
Page then said that these districts'
were among the very few In the State '
w hich had made default In payments, j
No request was made of the county
school board, so Dr. Mann Is informed,
to levy a special tax to take care of
these debts. But he is informed some
interest hss been paid and' a new ?
agreement made with the State since
April.
In If-OT. continue the charges, the
sum of $159.50. which was unexpended,
was held by the county on a device,
instead of being returned to the State
as provided by law. Also, some money
was paid to a teacher named Miss
Manson. which is claimed to have been'
illegal. With these transactions are J
mixed up a settlement between two,
district, for students from one taught
in a school in the other, and the devl
sion. superintendent, in a report, set
forth how it was planned to keep the
surplus money in the county Instead
of returning It to the State.
Pleads far Small School.
In a letter which accompanies his
formal charges. Dr. Mann make* a
plea for the little one-roomed schools.
He says that they have been neglected
in ord r to care for the consolidated
schools. The result Is that poor men
have to ceil their holdings and goj
to towns to educate their children,!
while negroea buy their farms. In
Brown a Store District, says Dr. Mann,
the trustees ran things to Suit them?
selves, and he could get no satisfac?
tion from them.
Then he tells of his experience with
other parties, lie wanted to go before
the grand Jury, he says, and tell his
troubles, but the attorney for the Com?
monwealth?K S. Ttirn'*>ull. Jr.. a son
of the Fourth District Congressman?
declined to permit him to do ao. Later
the sheriff allowed him to see the Jury.
That body decided to indict, the
charges say. hut Mr. Turnbull bad
not time to draw the paper that day.
so he explains in a latter. A warrant
was later made out and served on the
trustees, and Dr. Mann said It was
made out on the minor charge, which
permitted no penally. Instead of on
the major charge. The charges of
Dr. Mann reflect rather severely on the
t'ommonwealth's attorney.
Mr. Tara ball Carlalaa.
In his letter Mr Turnbull esys that
as the case was one of misdemeanor,
anvway. It wss just as effective to
make out a warrant before a justice
of the peace as to find an indictment,
since It would be tried before the
justice in any event.
Finally, there is a statement from
3. O. Blackwell. Justice of the peace,
who tried the case against the trus?
tees on the charge of not providing
sanitary equipment. Ife found them
guilty, but. at the request of thq
state Board of Health, he Imposed no
fine.
Dr. Mann sska that all these things
be Investigated. The State Board of
?BBMsM made a move e* to the di?
vision superintendent by summoning
him before It. and it began the matter
of sanitary arrangements <oy requiring
all of the thousands of schoolhouses
In tbe same condition with those de?
scribed by Dr. Mann to be properly
equipped.
Kegardlng all charges gave those
referring to the division superin?
tendent, the ?t?te board can take no
action Tt baa no authority whatever
over school trustees, who are answer?
able to local courts for mlsfeaaanee
or malfessance. The 1-oard will take
up the rharges against the superin- J
tendent.
