Speeches of r'.mlocaciiieut.
The Board of School Trustees met at
noon yesterday, with the following
members present: W. A. S. Taylor,
chairman: R. C. Taylor, secretary, and
, Messrs. East, Pomplln, Greenwood,
I Flveash. Whltehead, Moran. Bell. Gale.
i Minter, Ruffln, Randolph, Morris and
I Superintendent Dobie.
i A communication was received from
the Brambleton Board of Improvement
on the subject of the salary of teachers
in that ward, which staled that the
board recognizes the right of the School
Board to regulate salaries in accord?
ance with the amount of money fur?
nished by the former. There was some
, discussion over the communication.
; after which it was ordered to be spread
upon the records.
CANDIDATES FOR RECTOR.
The next business taken up was the
election of a rector for the Fourth
Ward School. There were several ap?
plicants, but. on motion of Mr. J. Frank
East, no applications were considered
except from those who" wem nominated.
He then out in nomination Mr. R. L.
Prof. G. Winston Parish, of Ports?
mouth, was nominated by Mr. W. A.
The npplicntlons and recommenda?
tions of both candidates were read.
They were full and complimentary
Mr. Dobie is a graduate of the Vir?
ginia Military Institute of Lexington
and a son of Superintendent R. A. Dobie.
Prof. Parish holds the position of
teacher in the Portsmouth public
schools ami graduated with honors nt
tile University of Virginia.
Mr. East. In recommending Mr. Dobie
for the position, said ho had no doubt
that nil the applicants for the position
were thoroughly competent. Any man
who is at all competent to tench could
supply the vacancy In the Fourth Ward
School, but It was a duty that he owed
to our home talent to elect a teacher
from Norfolk. It is the duty of the \
board to stand by our own people. If
Mr. Dobie was not an applicant I should
vote for Mr. Parish, but having a man
in our own community fully competent
to tench, I should vote for him
Mr. Minter said: "I accept what has
been said by Mr. East In favor of home
talent. Mr- Parish graduated in our
own schools. He started here. He Is,
therefore, an example of home talent.
If he is elected to the position he In?
tends to make Norfolk his home, but
in so Important a matter we should dis?
card all personal feelings. Although 1
represent Atlantic City Ward in this
board, having been sent here by its
citizens, i make It my duty to care?
fully study the Interests of the city at
large. I recommend Mr. Parish because
his experience and training eminently
lit him for the position we have to llll."
Mr. Randolph called attention to the
fact that certificates are required by
law. Touchers cannot hold positions In
the public schools who have not certi?
ficates. He staled nlso that no recom?
mendations could be read under the re?
solution passed except of those who
were nominated. This cut off some re?
commendations for other teachers
which Mr. KiiIMn offered to read.
Mr. Whitchead said: "I nominated
Mr. Dobie nt the previous meeting of
the board. I believe it to be our duty to
stand by our own people- I favor giving
Mr.,Dobie this position, believing that
be will fill it with credit and honor.
No man from Norfolk could be elected
to tin? position of scavenger In Ports?
Mr. Whltehead, in his remnrks. re?
ferred to Mr. Minter's connection with
the Norfolk Landmark.
Mr. Minter. in replying to Mr. White
head, said: "While I am an at?
tache of the Landmark, the Landmark
has no Influence on my position In this
matter. I am acting as I believe for
the best Interests of public education in
the city of Norfolk."
ENOUGH OF NEPOTISM.
Mr. Ruflln said: "Duty often entails
upon us a disagreeable task In public
matters. T dislike to oppose the elec?
tion of Mr. Dobie because of the pleas?
ant relations that exist between mv
self and him and his father, but ns
was the case with Prof. Rain, this board
must not be restricted by time nor place
In securing the best talent that Is avail?
able. The contest is narrowed to the
election of Mr. Dobie or Prof. Parish.
The latter holds that certificate which
Is a passport to tho army, the navy ?
to anywhere a man may desire to go.
He holds the certificate of master of
arts of the University of Virginia.
That is a passport to nny position to
which n man can or may aspire. I can?
not consent, without vrntest. to the
election of n rector In our schools who
is the ?:on of the superintendent. We
have had enough of nepotism in Nor?
Aft^r the remarks of Mr. RnfTln the
election wns proceeded with by ballot,
with the following result:
MR. DOHIE ELECTED.
Mr. Dobie received 8 votes. Prof. Par?
ish. 6. Mr. Dobie was declared elected
rector of the Fourth Ward School.
Superintendent Dobie In graceful
words acknowledged the compliment
the board had raid his son. and re?
marked that the relations between 1dm
and the new rector would Induce him to
report nny dereliction quicker there
than if these relations did not exist.

For sevcT.il weeks there has been In
circulation a rumor that a large silk
mill would In all probability be estab?
lished In our rapidly growing commu?
nity, but the Virginian-Pilot refrained
from giving greater publicity to it Cot
the reason that the Norfolk promoters
had not consummated their plans, and
on the assurance that at the proper
time it would be placed in possession
Of all the facts of public Interest con?

This Important industry was secured
to Norfolk through the efforts o?
Messrs. Mottu, deWitt & Company.
Myers & Company, and Mr. I>. 1.Oren?

The Board of Directors Is made up of
silk manufacturers of New York, ,Pat

It is the intention of the company to
erect a large mill nt Lambert's Point,
and equip it with the latest improved
machinery for the manufacture of silk.
The plant will, when completed, cover
about two acres of ground, nnd will
probably be operated by eloc'trlclty. it
will give employment to from 300 to
450 hands at remunerative wages.
The general manager of the new In?

Within the next thirty days starting

selves for work may apply for posi?

where they can learn full parti mlars.
A representative of the Virginian-Pi?
lot was Informed yesterday that after
the most careful investigation it has
been found that Norfolk is exception?
ally well located for a silk weaving
business, and that the gentlemen who
have obligated themselves to put $400.

the enterprise mutually profitable.

It showed that considerable thought

held that there was enough conflict in
