Frank J. Steele. 1400 Fifth-and-a-half
avenue, commercial agent for the Cen
tral Union Telephone company, former
sidewalk Inspector under the present
administration, and well known insur
ance man, died at St. Anthony's hospi
tal this morning after a brief illness of
three days. Death was caused by a
complication of diseases.
SlDnEX ATTACK MONDAY.
While down town Monday afternoon j
Air. Steele was suaueniy taKt-n iu, n
being necessary to assist him to his
home. A physician was summoned,
and as his condition, instead of show
ing improvement, eeemed to take a
turn for the worst, it was deemed ad
visable to remove him to the hospital,
which was done yesterday morning.
He submitted to an operation yesterday
afternoon at 1:30, but never entirely
rallied from the shock, although he was
conscious until an hour before the
time of his death.
His wife was present at the bedside
at the time of death. He was well and
favorably known In the city and during
his residence here made a great many
friends, to whom the news of his sud
den death will prove a severe shock.
IX CITY 14 YEARS.
Mr. Steele was born in South Bend,
Ind.. Aug. 5, 187l and had been a resi
dent of that city until 14 years ago,
when he removed to this city. He re
ceived his education in the public
schools of South Bend, and was engag
ed is the tailoring business there.
Cpon his removal to this city he open
ed a pantatorium In the old Buford
block, where he conducted a business
for two years. He was married to Miss
Anna D. Kuhn of Mill Creek, Ind., at
Davenport, Nov. 28, 1899. After dis
posing of his pantatorium business he
engaged in several occupations. He
was general agent for the Illinois Life
Insurance company for a number of
years, having charge of the territory
In Rock Island and vicinity. In April,
1011, he retired from the insurance
business to accept the newly created
office of eidewalk inspector for the
city. When this office was abolished
last October, he accepted a position as
commercial agent with the Central
Lnion Telephone company, and was
employed in that capacity up until the
time of his death. He was a member
of Local No. 980, B. P. O. E., and Camp
009, M. W. A. Besides his widow, he is
survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs
John S. Steele, and a sister, Mrs. Wil
liam A. Duttera, all of South Bend.
The remains will be taken to that city
for burial, but definite funeral arrange
ments have not been made as yet.

MOTHER OF OUTLAW BEGS
HIM TO GIVE HIMSELF UP
Hillsville, Va., March 28. The
mother of the Edwards boys had a
long talk last evening with Tom A.
Felts, field marshal of the sheriff's
posse in search of the Allen outlaws.
She rode into Hillsville on a side
saddle, escorted by a scout of the
"If there is any way you can help
me get into communication with my
poor Wes," sh told the detective
chief, "I will send him a written plea
straight from my mother heart. I
will beg him to surrender himself
and come In without resistance."
It was suggested that the case
against Wesley Edwards looked very
black and that conviction would be
likely to confront him.
"In spite of that," said the mother.
"I would rather have him face trial
like a man than to be lying awake
nights, as I am now, thinking that
the poor lad Is probably slowly starv
ing to death or dying by inches from
exposure and fatigue. How could a
mother ever bear the grief of learn
ing that her boy had starved or been
shot like a w-ild beast?
"I am confident Wesley has not es
caped from the mountains. I feel
sure he is within a few miles of my
home and it is an awfnl thing for me
to feel all the time that he dare not
come to his own home for food or
warmth, that we cannot go to him

Captain Felts said he wished he
had knowledge of Wesley's where
abouts, that the mother's message
might be delivered to him. He ad
mitted he and his men were as much
in the dark as ever on that point.

ever, that posses were moving upon
the courthouse assassins from two

New York, March 28. The sixth
annual report of the president and
the treasurer of the Carnegie foun
dation covers the year ending Sept.
30, 1911. The endowment amount
ed at that time to $12,123,000, com
prising Mr. Carnegie's original gift
of $10,000,000 in 1905, an accumula
tion from Income of $1,123,000 and
$1,000,000 received in 1911 as the
first Installment of Mr. Carnegie's
additional gift of $5,000,000 in 1908.
Of the income of $590,000 for the
year 1910-1911, $526,000 was ex
pended in retiring allowances and
pensions, $36,000 in general admin
istration, and $16,000 in educational
publication. Fifteen recipients of al
lowances died during the year, includ
ing Professors Bowditch of Harvard,
Corson of Cornell, Harrison of Vir
ginia and March of Lafayette. Thirty-one
retiring allowances and 17
widow's pensions were granted dur
ing the year, increasing the number
in force to 373, the average annual
payment being $1,631, and the total dis
tribution to date $1,746,000. All of the
new allowances were granted to
persons connected with institu
tions that are on the accepted list of
the foundation, other allowances
proving inexpedient as expenditure
has approximated the income and as
the accepted list has enlarged. This
list now includes 72 universities, col
leges and schools of technology, the
University of Virginia having been
added during the year. '
The presidents of Harvard univer
sity, Indiana university and Vassar
college were elected to membership
in the board of 25 trustees, which is
composed of university and college
presidents and financiers. No grants
having been made under the rule per
mitting allowances to presidents and
other administrative officers after 25
years of service terminating before
the age of 65, the trustees rescinded
it and established a new rule, under
which the foundation will continue
to a professor when he reaches 65, an
allowance begun by his own institu
tion at the expiration of 25 years
of professional service or 30 years as
instructor and professor.
In discussing the business of the
year. President Pritchett emphasizes
the necessity of administering the In
come of the foundation strictly ac
cording to the rules that have been
framed, and from a survey of the
history of pension systems, urges up
on the colleges themselves a sense
of obligation to their old and dis
abled professors at least equal to that
shown by business corporations. The
1 exchange of teachers conducted
through the foundation sent nine
American teachers to Prussia during
the year and received seven Prussian
teachers In the United States, in both
instances with gratifying results. A
description of the publications of the
foundation announces a 6tudy of med
ical education in Europe as in press,
and studies of agricultural and me
chanical colleges and of the training
of teachers as in progress.
The second part of the report is
a comprehensive survey by the presi
dent of educational progress and ten
dencies from a national point of view.
Private and local educational initi
ative without guidance, and federal
and state grants without supervision
are so wasteful financially and so
hurtful educationally that agreement
and cooperation must Inevitably In
crease. A summary of the organiza
tion of present types of educational
systems shows a growing tendency to
ward state boards or commissions,
that promises ultimately to prevent
the chartering of fraudulent educa
tional institutions like those in the
District of Columbia; the granting of
public funds for private educational
ventures as in Pennsylvania; and the
subsidizing of educational competi
tion as in various southern and west
ern states. The great variation in
educational efficiency that now exists
is shown to be unnecessary and
wasteful. It is neither necessary nor
desirable that some states should
spend only one-eighth as much as'
others per capita for education, have
only half as long a school year, en
roll only half as large a proportion
of their school children and spend
only one-fifth as much in educating
each teacher. Recent educational
legislation shows promise of improve
ment, buta broader view of the prob
lems involved is imperative.
A better adjustment is developing
between the colleges and the high
schools. Many universities and col
leges have advanced within 10 years
from competing with high schools,
while other institutions, like Har
vard, have broadened their entrance
requirements so that they can be met
by the average good high Bchool.
These changes help the whole educa
tional system, so that in Virginia, for
example, there are now ten times a3
many four year high schools as there
were in 1905. Unnecessary institu
tions, however, continue to be devel
oped for personal, local and denom
inational reasons, to the deteriora
tion of educational standards and the
withdrawal or support from neces
sary and worthy Institutions. Stu
dents who should torn toward indus
trial training are deflected elsewhere
through advertisements, scholarships
and other stipends, to the waste of
their abilities and of public funds.

size of post-graduate schools 50 per

financial waste and often in a com

have four, five, seven and nine schools

alone has six and Pennsylvania has
13, five of these having less than 40
students each. Fortunately, the en
gineering societies and the founda
tion are now cooperating to bring
about an elimination through insist
ence upon proper standards.
A bulletin of the foundation in
1910 described every one of the 160
medical schools la the United States
and suggested a general plan of re
form. The present report lists 22
unworthy medical schools that have
passed out of existence during the
last year, unable to stand the light of
publicity. An equal number of

opposition and to a new emphasis on

Politics still play a large part In
the appointment and dismissal of
state university boards, presidents
and professors, and in lobbying for
legislative funds. Public criticism of
recent action of this Bort in Kentucky
and Oklahoma, however, Indicates a
movement toward a more careful con
stitution of governing boards. The
influence of organized alumni also
needs to be more carefully directed,
so that instead of Insisting on low
athletic ideals as recently in Michi
gan and Alabama, it shall become a
real educational influence.
In general, the sense of public ob
ligation to the cause of eduoation ap

plainly come when private and local

the point of view of the state and of

In legar education there is an im
provement in instruction and an in
creasing emphasis on better stan
dards by authoritative bodies like the
American Bar association, but poor
schools still turn out three times as
many lawyers as the country needs
and one-hair or our states have no
adequate educational requirement for
admission to the bar. The miscar
riage of justice, the law's delays, the
cost of litigation, public disregard of
law and disrespect for the judiciary,
all proceed in no small degree from
this multiplication of ill-traraed law
yers. The bar is peculiarly reepon
sible, sincit alone of all professions
practically fixes its own requirements
for admission to practice.
In theological education the report
points out a hitherto unnoticed in
crease in attendance since the rec
ognized decline which terminated in
1905. A study of the attendance In
theological seminaries disproves the
claim that denominational colleges
are the chief source from which stu
dents enter the seminaries. In the
