Normal School Trustees
LITTLE SIG5 OF EARLY SETTLEMENT
Proposition to Delegate an Ontsld Com
mittee to Select the Site Declared Inad
visable & Consultation With Oovernor
Tanner. Bat It la Not Likely lie Will la
fere. The normal school contest I still
on at Springfield and there appears
little prospect of an earlv settlement.
The trustees put io yesterday dis
cussiog a proposition to appoint a
commission of normal school men to
select the site, hut it was pointed out
that this would not help matters
The board of trustees cannot lejrallv
shift the responsibility for the loca
tion of the school, nor can it bind
itself to accept the judgment of out
side men. It was suggested that the
trustees a? individuals rould bind
themselves, but some of the member
object to this and insist that the trus
tees shall do the work themselves.
' Call on Governor.
Tod.iv the trustees will call on (Itfv.
Tanner for advice, but it is not likely
that he will interfere. He has been
keeping out of the fight, and it would
not be to his advantage to throw his
nflnence to either of the towns.

the house, with the rank and file, a
cheer went up tnroughout the build
ing. This was repeated again and
again until it swelled into a mighty
shout, accompanied by vigorous hand
clapping and feet-stomping that shook
the building. Then during the course
of the evening, when one of the speak
ers alluded incidentally to Mr. John

approbation. And when the ex
ercises proper were over, ami
the last ot the regular speakers had
spoken, the cry arose ad over the
bouse, of Johnson!" Johnson!"
Johnson, of Peabody!" etc. The
suggestion was taken up with such
unanimity of expression that it seemed
as if every one in the house was con
tributing t i tne volume of tne sound.

entry of Mr. Johnson was repeated.

of unavoidable circumstances, he bad
not been privileged to spend more
time in the city during the present
gathering of the order's officials, but
he was merely passing through the
city, and had improved the oppor
tunity to stop, if only for the even
ing, and would be obliged to resume
bisjoiirnev on the midnight train.
He was overjoyed at the thought of
meeting again old friends from all
parts of Ij jurisdiction of Wood

ance of tbose wbo bad entered its
official ranks since he had ceased to
