mending that congregations be asked for

mittee recommended that graduates of
colleges and theological institutions be
excused from a part of their confined
studies. Rev. Dr. Buckley moved as a
substitute the report of the Committee
on Itinerancy, which stated that it was
inexpedient to excuse the graduates
from any part of their Conference

The Committee on Teachers and Trans
fers reported that owing to alack of unan
imity on the part of the graduating class
in the request for a class day it deemed it
best to recommend that the occasion be
passed over this year. Mr. Barnes, in
discussing the question of class day, said
that the girls of the class were in favor of
a class day, and he was earnestly of the
opinion that their request should be
granted. Prof. Day believed that in view
of the fact that the boys had declined to
press the claim for a class day it should
not be urged upon them simply Dbecause
a portion of the class had requested it.
As the two schools had not united in the
request he doubted the propriety of fore
ing it upon them. Mr. Boyer was heart
ily in favor of making the class day ex
clusively for the girls’ high school, and
that the boys be excused. Mr. M'Kee
said the boys were indifferentas to a class
day, but he knew that they were ready
to take their part in such exercises if the
Board so decreed. Mr. Rhoads moved
that the ladies only be granted the priv
ilege of a class day, which was defeated.
Mr. Boyer then moved that a class d%y
for the entire graduating ciass be granted,
which was agreed to.
Mr. Smith offered a resolutior. provid
ing for the acceptance of the provisions of
the Wallace act of 1874, making the City
Treasurer the ex-officio treasurer and
disburser of the school fund. He spoke
at length in favor of the resolution, argu
irg that there had been a too lavish ex
penditure of the school fund under the
present arrangement of collecting and dis
bursing it, and by the acceptance of the
act in question that might be avoided.
Mr. Boyer could see no advantage to be
gained by the change and Mr. Barnes
spoke at length against the adoption of
the resolution. Mr. Smith here obtained
the floor and stated in defense of his po
sition that citizens had come to him and
contended that it was improper for any
body to audit its own accounts. Mr.
Sourbeer thought the City Treasurer
would have to secure additional help and
the Board would therefore gain nothing
by a transfer of the accounts.
President George then took the floor
end in a speech of some length favored
the adoption of all the provisions of the
Wallace act, a portion of which was in
cluded in the resolution offered by Mr.
Smith. He thought it a measure of great
importance and he would only be too
glad to have an opportunity to vote upon
it. Mr. Young was not altogether clear
as to the utility of the act itself, or the
desirability of the change indicated by
the resolution. The only tangible argu
ment was in the matter of economy. [le
thought by the proposed change the funds
would be placed in the hands of strangers,
so to speak, and the time might come
when the board would be much crippled
by a possible conflict of authority in the
matter of signing orders. Mr. Young
thought there was no demand upon the
part of the tax-payers for such a change,
which he thought would be disastrous in
its effect. The yeas and nays being called
on the adoption of the resolution were-—
yveas, 15; nays, 10. Agreed to.
Yeas—Messrs. Baker, Boyer Fager,
Clark, Day, Spicer, M’ Williams, Moore,
Potts, Rhoads, Reed, Smith, Crane,
Kraber, George, president—ls.
Nays—Messrs. Barnes, Bergstresser,
May, M'Kee, Miller, Sourbeer, Sparrow,
Steckley, Young and Zollinger—lo.
Mr. Boyer then moved that the vote by
which the resolution was adopted be recon
sidered, and that the matter be laid over
for a week, which was amended by Mr.
Smith to take it up immediately. The
amendment was agreed to and the ques
tion recurring on the reconsideration of
the resolution it was defeated.
A recommendation of the Committee
on Teachers, etc., that the Board close
the schools on Friday, June 27th, and
that the commencement exercises be held
in the Opera House that evening, was
Prof. Day ina few farewell remarks re
turned his thanks to the Board for its
courtesy and kindness to him during his
service of six consecutive vears and ex
pressed the kindest regards for his asso
A unanimous vote of thanks was ten
dered President George for the able dis
charge of the duties devolving upon him.
The president responded briefly in a few
well-chosen words and then declared the
Board adjourned without day.
Siight Freight Wreck.
Last evening as a freight train was
coming east over the Pennsylvania rail
road an accident occured near No. 2round
house in this city which overturned two
cars and broke in the sides of several
others. The accident was caused by a
draft of cars being run too far over a
switch and being caught by the passing
freight. The damaged cars were sent to
the shops for repairs.
