35 hatham Street, Boston
The need of a convention hall In Hur
Ington was again emphasized Tuesday
ovonlng at the meeting ot tho Commciclal
club. Chairman Mix I- I'owcll of thu
committee upon tho matter reported that
two meetings had been held, at the sec
ond of which the opinion was unanimous
thnt tho Immediate need In for a conven
tion hall, rather than for a city hall.
Other considerations that Impressed thu
commltteo members In this direction were
tho evident local sentiment against bond
ing the city for any considerable sum of
money at the present time, tho fact that
to make o convent. "n hall a part of
new city hall would add J50.000 to thu
lattcr's cost, nnd finally, the great ad
vantage of having the proposed conven
tion hall on the street level, where dan
ger from fire would ho practically elimi
nated, because of tbn fact that there
would ho no stories under It, where fire
could start, nnd nlf-n because of tho
case of exit In case ot emergency.
If the city market lot were used, point
ed out Mr. Powell, there would be no Ini
tial expense for land. The natural slop
from tho public llbr.iry lot to Main street I meeting
"Our schools" was tho keynote of
tho open forum mooting held by tho
Burlington progrcBslvoB In their club
room on Church street Tuesday evening.
The meeting was tho first of a aeries
which have been nrrnngod for tho
winter to take up tho consldoration
of tho genoral theme "Our Public In
stitutions." Tho club room was well
flllod, a number of women being pres
ent. The meeting was strictly non
partisan, as will be the case In each
succeeding gathering. As oxplalned
by U. II. Itussell, president of tho club,
tho purpose of tho meetings will be
to awaken public Interest In local In
stitutions. At each meeting heads of
departments of various city offices
will he Invited to speak, and thoso
who attend will bo afforded opportun
ity to ask questions nnJ to express
opinions as they may see fit.

especially the high school, formed

"Where weru you when you found out
whero you were?" That is tho question
that Joseph Gero tried gallantly to an
swer for fully nn hour In reply to orossJ
examination by Attorney Pago. It ap
peared from tho testimony that Gero
lost himself for about tlireo hours onu
afternoon. U hen he "camo to" ho was
feliy his pocket book containing ll'X!. llo
had a hazy Idea of having "mot :i mun"
and of entering 11 houso on I'lrst street.
It developed from the testimony that
Gero one day last November took J1K!
from his homo and started out to pay
Homo bills. Ho visited several refresh
ment emporiums on North street and was
iiuwBuung n raiiur uncertain course up
thu street when ho suddenly "lost him
self." Gero admitted on tbj BUnd that
ho was navigating under a heavy sea
and cutitun't recall where ho went or
what ho did until he recognized Mmself
In front of the ear barns on North Wln
ooskt avenue. He was wultlng for a car
when a man camo up nnd Invited him
Into a houso across tho road. Ho accept
ed tho Invitation, Ho had his money safe
In his overcoat pocket when ho entered
tho house. A short time afterwards ho
remembered leaving tho house, followed
by .1 man who bteppud up, placed his
arms around (leio mid said "Now glvo
me that moniy." The man ran down tha
lower road and Gero called loudly for
help. Giro could not Identify Delargu
as tho man who Invited him Into tho
hotiBu or as the man who took his money.
Tho testimony on cross-examination
brought out tho fact that Gero was not
at nil certain of tho events of the day
except that ho was sure ho lost tho
money. At tho conclusion of Gero's testi
mony tho court took n recess until nine
o'clock Tuisdny morning.

affairs of the school In tho best Inter
ests of the public, and declared that
he knew every nctlon taken by t.ie
board was taken In harmony and with
tho best Interests of the people In
Mr. Wheeler confined his remarks to
what has been accomplished In adding to
the school equipment rather thon to what
Is being done In the way of teaching. He
spoke of the three new departments that
have recently been added at the high
school and said that requests have come
from outside sources for training In
manunl training, thus proving that this
department was a wlso acquisition. Mr.
Wheeler said that the policy of the school
board was to odd to the equipment Just
as rapidly as It seemed wise, after con
sidering the matter from all points of
view. He said that the public was always
welcome to come nnd Inspect the new ap
paratus and see what Is being done.
The more detailed Informaton concern
ing the work that Is being dono at the
high school was outlined by Principal
M. D. Chittenden. Mr. Chittenden declared
that he believed the work In the high
j school should be "conservatively pro
! gressive." Fifty per cent, of tho pupils
who graduated Inst year, he said, entered
the university. Mr. Chittenden spoke at
some length of the large amount of work
In various directions that Is expected
of the high school.
The parents, said Mr. Chittenden, can
do much In aiding tho teachers. If chil
dren ure allowed to be on tho streets at
night ami come to school In the morning
unfit for work, such a condition Is the
cause of much friction, Irritation and
trouble. Mr. Chittenden said that much
of the criticism that Is heard of tho
schools is due to Just such conditions as
these over which the teachers have no
Speaking of the radical criticism that
has appeared In some of the leading
magazines concerning the present educa
tion systems, Mr. Chittenden charac
terized It an unfair In many ways. As
principal of the local high school, Mr.
Chittenden said he was always glad to be
criticized In order that he might correct
any defects In the system. Co-operation
of parents, he said, was one of tho most
Important factors In producing good re
An Important point brought out by Mr.
Chittenden was the need for more land
near the high school for recreation pur
poses, llo said' that he had recently as
ceitalned that the land east of the high
school building and south of the princi
pal's homo could be made Into a desirable
recreation ground for a very ictsonablo
sum. He advuealod adding this recrea
tion ground to the high school In tho near
tuture In order that pupils' might obtain
physical exercise. Such an requisition,
said Mr. Chittenden, would do much to-'
wards solving many of the perplexing
problems before the teachers Mr, Chit
tenden touched on many of the phases ot
sihool work that are criticized .11 ranuom
by persons who are unfamiliar with tho
obstacles in teaching. One Important
point emphasized by tho speaker was tho
pressing need for the best teachers that
could bo secured.
Professor J. F. Messenger gave a breezy
"live wire" talk on educational matters
In general and a few things In particular
that might be Introduced In Burlington.
"I can't understand how you liavo tho
presumption to think I would permit my
daughter to beeomo your wife."
