the Public liool-..
Minneapolis, July 8. Bright skies
and balmy breezes greeted the teach
ers and educators, who flocked Into
this city from every corner of the
country to attend the sessions of the
National Educational association. All
incoming trains brought large delega
tions, and the day for most of the vis
itors was one of getting settled in
preparation for the week. The meet
ings of tha day were those of the na
tional council and for the Indian ed
ucation question. Nathan C. Schaef
fer of Harrisburg, state superintend
ent of public instruction in Pennsyl
vania, read a paper on "Taxation as
It Relates to School Maintenance."
He declared that as taxation for
sohool purposes is now the accepted
policy of every civilized country, its
nature and purpose should be taught
in connection with history and civil
government. He said in part: "One
of the highest tests in patriotism is
found in willingness to pay a just
share of the tax for the education of
Mr. Schaeffor held that the best
method of state taxation for school
purposes consists in setting part a
millage of tax which can not be di
verted to other purposes. He advo
oated taxation of railroads and other
property to raise a fund for distribu
tion among school districts that have
no railroads or other valuable corpor
ate property, lnose in control of the
schools should have the power to fix
a limit specifying the amount to be
raised. Arguments should be ad
dressed to taxpayers to show that
money spent in the right education
of the people is the best possible in
vestment of public funds."
The second paper of the morning
was by A. G. Iane, district superin
tendent of schools, Chicago, on "tux
ation and Teachers' Salaries." The
discussion was opened by J. M.
Greenwood, superintendent of schools
of Kansas City. Mo.

News About Strike.
Wilkesbarre, Pa. July 8. The
ninth week of the anthracite coal
miners' strike opened extremely
quiet. Conditions around the col
lieries remain unchanged. The strik
ers of this district, which is composed
of all the territory from Forest City,
20 miles north of Scranton, to Shick
shinny, 16 miles south of here, wore
interested in the annual convention,
which opened at Nanticoke. The
meeting in point of numbers is the
largest in the history of the district.
As far as is known no very important
business will come before the conven
tion. President Nicholls is sure of a
unanimous election, as are also most
of the other officers. Vice President
Ruscavage and Secretary John Uemp
sey are being opposed for re-elections.

departure for New York continues to
excite interest among the miners

the king upon his arrival in port here.
The relic, together with coins valued
at more than $iu,000, had been re

turned over to the British officials,
who, upon discovering tne inscription,
decided to send it to King Edward as
a coronation gift.

freight handlers in Chicago was call
ed and every freight house of the 24
railroads concerned is practically tied
up. Business men tear J that the strike;

fected their interests in years.
The strike was called by a commit
tee appointed at a meeting of 1,000
freight handlers. The committee was
instructed to call a strike within 48
hours unless the railroads should
meet the demands of the men at once
for an increase in wages, extra pay
for over time and holidays, and rec
ognition of the union.
Action on these instructions was
taken sooner than had been expected.
The committee went first to the men
in the Michigan Central, lillinois Cen
tral and Wisconsin Central house's, on
the lake front. The men walked out
with cheers and marched across the
viaduct on Randolph street, with their
union cards tucked in their hats. By
messenger and by telephone, accord
ing to the strike leaders, all other
members of the Interior Freight Han
dlers' and Warehouse Men's union
were called out. At noon President
Curran of the union reported that his
men were all out. and that it was all
but impossible for any freight to t li
ter Chicago or leave it.
Many of the railroads had small
forces of men previously hired on
hand when the strike was called, and
by adding to it men from other de
partments managed to handle perish
able commodities, in the hiring of
nonunion men it is said the railroads
run a serious risk of bringing about
a strike of teamsters, who recently
won their fight from tbe packers. Tbe
