no stotie unturned to bring the offend?

yesterday, ccul judgement prevmUeo,

An indignation meeting was hel<i.
ind the hotter heads were for descrrd

affront, but it was so^n shown to
?very or.es satisfaction tnat the aet
fould only have been committed by
iwo or tl ree students cf a maliciously
randa! turn of mind. So the matter
was eferred to the faculty for action.
LTp to 'ast. niiht the tiaint had not

appears slight, un.es? the students of

Further Hearing on School Board
The matter of purchasing pianos for
the use of the public schools, over
whicjh there was some wrangle at ths
last meeting of the committees on
buildings and furniture of the City
^ School Board. h;is not been settled. The
committee will meet Monday night,
when Lee Fergusson. of the Lee Fergus
son I'iano Cainpany, and others who
have not heretofore* been heard befor.
the school authorities will attend.
There is some controversy as to
which is in actual effect the lowest bid.
and from the terms of the various bids
It would appear that? this Is devtenrit-nt
on how many pianos axe to be pur?
chased. It is claimed by some that tho
lowest uill submitted to the School
Board was that of Stultz & Co.. for
pianos at $14S.7S, offered by the Fer
gusson brothers Company?not the
Loo Fergusson Piano Company. This
price was quoted for each piano, re
gardllQa of number.
Tho Caule Company, of Chicago, re?
fused t(. cut the price on Its Welling?
ton piano, which was accepted by the
board, to less than JU.V). but for adver?
tising purposes the Cable Company of?
fered to give the School Board one
piano with each one purchased. OMef
this offer it would be Impossible, for
the board to secure three pianos for
$375. as the bid waa approved1 by the
school Board at $-30 per instrument,
accepting the offer of an additional
piano for eai h on* purchased.
The piano contract under which the
City School Hoard has been operating
unt.I new bids were received a few
weeks ago was a contract made in ltd!
with the Cable Company, tbrougii J. G.
Coriey. local repres- ntative. Mr. Corley
not having been at that time a mem?
ber of the city School Bo.ird. The eM
contract was for $3.J for or.o instru?
ment, with the understanding that the
Cable Company, for advertising pur
;>ose.\ nouid give otic additional piano
with every one purchased.
1 Caster th.- new bids It Is now claimed
that the Calile Company is the lowest
bidder, provided the School Board <1e
sires to purchase two or four pianos,
bet If the board should determine to
purchase an odd number of pianos,
there are lower propositions pending.
Objection was made at the last sitting
o? the committee to having the city of
