f 1.200 a jear. that Mr. Bishop received
$1,600 and Mr. Leslie $1,500. Mr.
Halsey being a new and untried man
was employed at $1,200 with the un
derstanding (not official) that if he
proved the right man the salary
would be increased. Mr. Bobbins
says furthermore that Mr. Halsey has
a 'letter from Mrs. Hamilton ex
pressing admiration for his work and
promising him an increase in his
salary the cominjj year.
Mr. Bobbins denies the charges of
his carryingrommunications directed
to the board or of threatening- mem
bers in open session as to their vote
on the superintendence- With refer
ence to the resolutions adopted by the
teachers, Mr. Bobbins says he gave
them to a higher authority than the
beard the public as he was author
ized by the teachers to do. Replying
to the arraignments of refusing to
examine matter presented in defense
of the superintendent. Mr. Bobbins

some personal letters, which he de
clined to do. "I have investigated

Mr. Bobbins, with reference to the
charge that he had threatened
to strike a member of the
board says that he was ex
asperated beyond endurance and
for a brief instant lost his sel'-con-trcl,
but that no one prevented his
using the uplifted chair, as be re
covered his composure and apolo
gized at once. Mr. Kinyon had
called him a liar, and after he cau
tioned . himto be careful, the insult
was related, when Mr. Bobbin!) says
he threatened to strike him. He was
sorry, of course, but there is a limit
to human endurance.
In conclusion he says he is but the
representative of the people acd ho
is striving to serve their will that
he has no personal ends to serve.

In view of the action of the board
of education Saturday evening the is
sue involved can now only be taken
before the people, who at tho June
election must decide npon it. It is
simply Ament or anti-Ament. and it
is in response to the sentiment, that
for the best interests of the schools
a change in the superin tendency is
desirable, that Messrs. Marshall and
Donaldson have consented to stand
for election. It is because the posi
tion of both these gintlemen is
known, that both are fully in accord
with the existing opinion that they
have been prevailed npon tr become
candidates, and it is on this account
that Tub Amies, knowing the views
of both, has placed their names at the
head of its editorial columns and
most cheerfully gives its support to
the ticket on the only issue involved.
The good of the schools is involved;
the very life of the school system is
at stake. It is with the firm convic
tion that the school government as
at present controlled must be over
thrown and the present superinten
dent removed, believing in tho
righteousness of the teachers1 course
and devoted above all to the highest
welfare of the schools, that Tne Ait
c.ls knowing that Messrs. Marshall
and Donaldson represent those same
views, has subscribed itself to the
support of their candidacy. The is
sue is too vital to consider the aims
and ambitions of any one man or
any other theory. The point is shall
Mr. Ament be retained. TnE Argus
