, The resignation of Albert C. Eck-
ert. instructor In physics and rua.tb.e- !
inatics, who has been appointed to I
a fellowship in the Ohio state uni- ;
tersity, was accepted. On recom-
mendation of the teachers' commit-j
tee, the board provided for the pay-
rii'iit of $10 to all teachers in th?
city schools who attend every ses
sion of the coming county institute,
this sum to be added to the first
month's salaries. This will be a
stimulus to all of the Instructors to
u.isn none of the sessions this year.
The Institute Is a very important fac
tor in adding to the efficiency and
usefulness of the city teachers and
by taking this step it is hoped that
the entire teaching corps will make
it a point to attend every metting.
BlfcOKS ARB SELECTED,
It was decided to substitute the
Wentworth-Smith "Series of Geom
etry" text book for the Wentworth
which has been used in past years.
In addition the board authorized the '
use of Ella Lyman Cabot's "Every- j
day Ethics" and "Ethics for Chil
dren" to be used at the teachers
reading circles as a basis of study
for the instructors during the com
ing year, and Superintendent H. B.
Hayden was authorized to get the
books for this purpose. The petition
of the committee on public play
grounds to which an oral acceptance
has already been made by the city
pommiasloners, was formally en
dorsed by the board. A new con
crete driveway and walks complete
for the Eugene Field school were or
dered and the contract awarded to
Robert R. Atkinson.

Complainant Was Putting on
HUBBY PROMISES TO
BE GOOD IN FUTURE
Thereupon Mrs. Barney' Martens Re
lente and Doee Not IVess
Arriving at the police station early
this morning determined to send her
i husband to Jail for disorderly con
j duct, Mrs. Barney Martens relented
after her spouse had tearfully plead
ed wuu ner to give mm Just on
more opportunity to mend his ways.
Barney was taken before Magistrate
C. J. Smith, however, before his wife
relented and there be promised to
support her and their children and
at the same time keep away from
her. Magistrate Smith suspended a
fine of $100 over hit. head to keep
him to his promise.
Further testimony in the Clarence
Mart case in the police court this
morning, in which the defendant is
charged with assault with a deadly
weapon, showed that C. W. Campbell,
the complainant, rather than Mart,
was the aggressor in the fracas In
the H. Flemming saloon at Fifteenth
street and Fourth avenne late Tues
day night As the result of the con
flict in testimony Clarence Mart was
dismissed by Magistrate C. J. Smith
this morning. He was represented by
J. K. Scott
It developed that most of the occu
pants of the saloon were drunk during
the mixup and therefore the testimony
was garbled and of little value. Ed
Wright claimed that while he waa
standing near Campbell, the latter at
tempted to strike him, but missed, and
the blow fell on Clarence Mart, knock
ing his beer lass from his hand and
spilling the beer over Mart's clothes
After that he knew no more until he
saw Campbell sitting in a chair and
others were wiping the blood from his
VAroEmxB was ox.
When Mart took the stand in his
own defense, he stated that he enter
ed the saloon about 10 o'clock when
he heard singing in there. He found
a vaudeville show in progress with
Campbell as the one big feature act.
Oakey, Campbell's companion and
champion, was master of ceremonies.
Mart informed Campbell that he liked
his singing. Campbell replied that
while he was singing there must be
absolute silence. Mart declared that
Campbell wa intoxicated. He claim
ed that after Campbell struck at him.
Campbell reeled back against a table
