The resolution discharging Prof. Ni
alleges failure "to take proper interest
in the good and welfare of said schools
aud to perform his duties as superinten"
dent." This was passed by a vote of 5
to l,but as no fair-minded and intelligent
citizen took any stock therein, the sup
porters of the resolution had to get to
gether and offer an explanation. This
explanation alleges that the superinten
dent was discharged because of his con
tinued opposition to the board's plans
for the promotion of the schools, (which
by the way, iis utterly unfounded) and
because of his offensive remarks and his
failure to make peace with the
Board and his very apparent
willingness to sacrifice the interests of
the schools to gratify his personal dis
like for members of the board shown
clearly in his determination to prevent
or delay much needed improvements in
the course of study and general manage
ment of our high school. Each and
every one of these allegations is false.
Ni has never stood in the way of im
provement, unless it be that the Board
deems every one of its nonsensical
as being strictly in the line of improve
ment. The fact that he opposed Milne
is not an evidence that he opposed im
provements for Milne was never fit. for
the position to which he was elected,and
it was the Board that evinced balkiness
in this particular procedure. The fact
that he drew up a splendid plans and
program for a four years' course in or
der to make the high school preparatory
to the State University is certainly not
evidence of opposition to improvement,
and the fact thathe stated that no one
wanted that change more than he is still
less proof of antagonism or lack of in
terest. The fact that he upheld perma
nent tenure in opposition to the Board is
equally positive proof that he was not
opposed to steady advancement. The
fact of the matter is that the Board has
been devising retrogressive movements
and either dMn't know enough or was
too obstinate to see it. Bu this is r.ot
the feature we started to point out. Yo
will notice that the resolution and the
explanation do not agree, but that both
were agreed to unanimously by all five

of fact the largest audiences Edwin Booth
ever attracted were in the years after Mr.
Irving had come to this country and
the greatest run of money ever made in
any one season was made by Booth and
Barrett after Mr. Irving was pretty well
known in this country. Any one familiar
with theatrical affairs Knows perfectly
well that Mr. Booth was concerned not at
all about the fortunes or distinctions of
other actors, save as he rejoiced in their
success, and also knows that Mr. Booth
was ever dearer and closer to the people
in the last years of his professional life
than in the days when his genius was a
more consuming flame. A there were
but few years of difference in the ages
of Booth and Irving, and as Booth was
in the very best of his intellectual period,
so far as age is concerned, when Irving
came to America, it is singular that a
person pretending to be informed as to
Booth should imagine that Booth
had seen in the light of Irving's star the
waning of his own. W are told in the
quoted paragraph that Booth "did not
believe in the new school." What new
school? The school of natural expres
sion? The school that discarded elocu
tionary methods and the grand manner?
Heaven bless your five wits, Edwin
Booth was the very father of that scool.
He was the actor wl:o, putting away the
old fashion, revolutionized
acting in this country as distinctly and
positively as did Garrick in his time and
country. Forrest railed at the new school
and the elder Wallack marveled at it,
but the people were dumbfounded and
then delighted, and ''that young man
down at the Winter Garden Theater"
had given a now impulse to the American
drama so positive that the influence of
it spread to the English stage, and if
Henry Irving stands in any relation to
Edwin Booth, it is in that of pupil and
disciple. Mr. Irving does not hesitate
now to imply as much. This season he
has said repeatedly, with loving retros
pect, that ha looked upon the acting of
Edwin Booth in Manchester thirty-three
years ago as it were a revelation—the
grace, the naturalness, the beauty, the
divine inspiration, the truth of his work
delighting and animating the younger
actor. "Why," said Mr. Irving, "he was
like a flash of lightning, illuminating
everything and I have always thought
ol him and loved him from that time."
Mr. Booth was the first actor to read
blank verse in the manner of ordinary
speech without elocutionary method.
He discarded the "grand manner" so
utterly as often to be criticised for a "too
commonplace" treatment of Shakespeare
an ideals. The persistence with which
some writers disregard the fact that Ed
win Booth flung away a vast fortune
in the attempt to establish a great theater
in this country is the more vexatious for
the extravagant praise they bestow upon
Mr. Irving, who was but a follower of
Mr. Booth. However, it is hardly worth
while to quarrel with the perversity that
sets Mr. Irving against Mr. Booth, and
styles the former the representative of
"the new order of things" in dramatic
art, and the latter the exponent of the
of the old-fashioned. Edwin Booth is
yet the ideal Shakespearean actor of
modern times his star shines undimmed
