Mayor aitroy has repelled with some Indignation the allegation that the Hoard of Estimate nnd Apportionment hnB not dealt fairly with the public schools In the annual npproprlntlons granted to tho Hoard of education. The .Mayor de clares the statement a misrepresentation, nnd announces that he "will not permit the city's educational system to bo so grossly libelled, nor tho city's authori ties to lie put In sucn a false position " Mr. Gllroy quotei figures to support his contention that the iiulhorltlei control ling the city's purse strings, give as freely to the Hoard of Kdticntlon as to other city departments. He produces tho annual appropriations for the malnte rancc of the schools and the bonds Issued In each year, for school sites nnd build ings for the Inst twelve yenrs, nnd seeks to show Hint the amounts were larger under six years of his own nnd Mayor Grnnt's Tammany administrations than under six years of tho more Independent administrations of Mayors Edson, Grace and Hewitt. Mayor's Gllroy's figures are mlslendlng and deceptive as he uses them, and In stead of disproving the charge of dis crimination against the schools they fully and unqualifiedly establish Its truth. In the six years from 18S3 to 1SS8 Inclu sive, the amount of bonds Issued for new school sites and buildings was only Jl,558,001. The amount from 16S9 to 1691 Inclusive, was $7,357,114. This Is an ex cess of J5,799,113 In the last six years. Hut these bonds are issued by order or sanction of the Legislature. The Board of Estimate and Apportionment, which controls the annual appropria tions, has nothing to do with them. Nor have they any connection with the main tenance of the schools. The city author ities have generally opposed tho bond Issues. Only this present year, when $1,500,000 was voted by the Legislature for sites and buildings, the amount was reduced trom a much larger amount on the persistent demand and through the vigorous efforts of Mayor Gllroy, who would have defeated the appropriation altogether if he could. Hut how has It been with the annual appropriations made for the yearly man agement nnd maintenance of the schools, and actually representing the liberality ot the city authorities In charge of the purse strings towards the Educational Department? Let us compare some of the appropria tions for a few of the city demrtmentn In 18S4, under Mayor Edson, wtth those in 1KM under Gllroy. The departments of most value to the politicians are Public Works, Fire, Parks, Street Cleaning ond Law. The appropriations compare thus: ISSt. 11H. IncrriM.

Yet In those ten years the number of schools and the force of teachers have lirgfly Incrensed, while more than six hundred thousand people have been ad led to the population. Do these figures, plain facts fom the records, prove that It Is a "libel" on the educational system and on the city au thorities to charge that the public schools havo not been treated 11 h liberally as the political departments of the city govern ment? Are they not. Indeed, unanswer able proof that the Educational IXpnrt rpent has been unjustly refused appro priations absolutely needed to meet Its Increased expenses and to satisfy the wants of the growing population? Do they not Imply that Tammany has more use for the departments that supply con tracts for Tammany backers und places for Tammany heelers than for the De partment that supplies education to the children of the poor nnd rescues them from Ignorance and Its companion, vlce7 BEQUIRES ATTENTION. Quite enough suspicion attaches to the Park Department to make It desirable that changes should be made In tho Commission. The bitter light made agalnBt the people In the matter of tho Bpeedway sidewalks, the queer work In connection with tho contracts for tho speedway construction, the secrecy and apparent crookedness In the use of the one million dollir relief und and other matters have long seemed to demand the Mayor's attention. The asphalt business now looks us If It might lead to more than a municipal Investigation. Are nine hundred ond ninety-nine dollar contracts to be again revived? Are they an evasion of the law? Were or are any of the l'nrk Commissioners Interested In the asphalt company? These are questions that may well be considered In a Grand Jury room. But that does not remove the obligation of the Mayor to keep the municipal de partments clean and effective. WILL THEY PUSH THE DIRT AWAY 1 The Street-Cleaning Department has a new machine for cleaning the streets. It Is a small sweeper, that Is pushed along by a man. The contrivance louks pretty in a picture, anil Its adoption ly Commissioner Andrews dhows that ho means to put an aesthetic touch to tint work of bis Department. The machines can be handsomely painted, und per haps nickel plated, and the street cleaner who pushes It, If h has a sweetheart or a wife with ilecorutlv art ideas, may push It ull the more proudly If It has huesome ribbons flut tering from the handles. We have no doubt that the pretty little push-carts will be us delightful on parade us ure the baby-carriages In Central Park, and that New Yorkers will be glad to bee them ut work. Hut the sooner Commissioner Andrews and everybody else concerned Uurns that It Isn't new street-cleaners we want but new street-cleaning, the more agreeuble and delightful our streets will be to look ut and walk upon. It the man power sweeping machines do no better In the aggregate than the other machin ery ot the Department did In the past, then the banana-skin and the dust-pile will continue their sway, and street cleanliness, it over discovered here, will, as the vartaiy, eomedfaui .remarks, be 6ttBlt j , jilHHHHM COLLISION AT SEA.

Tho second olllcer, Mr. ltusscr, who was In command of the Louise, reported that the ship was seaworthy anil was making no water. He only waited for a fair wind to tnke her Into Queenstown for Instructions. The wind was then northeast, light, with moderate sea. The crew was well. . June 5, nt 0 30 A.

After the l'.Nmarek passed she ngaln hoisted 11 slgnul addressed to the steam er Barmen. The Fuerst Bismarck's lookout could not make out the flags, but saw tho Barmen, which was six miles north of her, holding down tow ards the Stockholm City. The Stock holm City left Boston May 29, bound for Havre and Liverpool. The time of tho Fuerst Bismarck's passage wan 0 days, 20 hours und 49 minutes. Wednesday, O.

The Sick Babies' Fund Is a charity that appeals directly to motherly nnd fatherly hearts. "No love llko mother's love ever was known," and "like as n father pltleth his children," ore some of the sweet thoughts read between the lines of the little letters that come to this olllce. Some of the letter-paper has un edge of black that tells a Btory with out words One sad mother sent 12 In memory of two cherished lives, nnd In the last month a dozen others have paid tribute u their prtclous dead through the chun nel of misery. "Life for the living and rest for the dead," tho poet, George Arnold, wrote of his "Jolly old pedagogue long ago." and It holds good nnd beautiful In theory to-day. Two little girls In Brooklyn sold the roses that grew In their garden for the Blck babies. They mado forty bouquets nnd got live cents apiece for posies worth $5. The employees of J. N.

Her Lawyor Says She's " Mrs. Fig man " for Businoss Rcasors. Tho Couple Sailed Together on tho Noriniinnlii Yesterday. Sadie Martinot Is not divorced from Fred Stlnsun nor Is she married to Max Flgmuu. The pleasant story of a hasty divorce and sudden marriage, which Miss Mur tlnot and Mr. Flgmuu guve out Just before they sailed on the Hamburg American liner Normanla yesterday, Is a bit of diplomatic fiction. The unconven tional fact that they booked on the steamer as "Mr. nnd Mrs. Max Fig man" Is another Btroke of diplomacy, anil bears an explanation that any one with Just a slight stretch of Indulgence will uccept. "I must confess to a direct Inquiry," said Luwyer Abe Hummel this morning, "that Miss Martinot still legally re mains MrH. Stlnson." .Mr. Hummel Is Miss Martlnot's at torney, "You see." he continued, Miss Martinot bus debts. Touch that as delicately us you can. Cull them out standing claims upon her, or the as sumptions of tradesmen, or something of that Inoffensive sort don't you see?" Mr. Hummel then went on to explain that a mairled woman cannot be at tached for her individual debta. Avail ing herself of this law, MIbs Martinot has long referred her creditors to her husband, Stlnson. This reference Is growing threadbare, und, something new being needed, she has assumed to be Mrs. Flgmnn for a while. From Mr. Hummet's own statement, moreover, Miss Martinot does intend to divorce Stlnson ond to mnrry Figman. When she left her mamma behind and set off for Europe she took Mr. Figman ulong as a sort of chaperon a compan ion de voyage. She la only to be gone live or six weeks, and will return with material picked up In Europe for her repertoire of next season. L'pon her return she will seek out the best legal expedient to free her from her long - standing silent partnership with Stlnson, whom she married from caprice ten or twelve years ago In Boston, Mr. Stlr.son Is now, as he was then, the man ager of the Boston Museuem stock com pany. "vou must understand," said Mr. Hum mel, "to sympathize thoroughly with Miss Martinot In her present position, that tho publication of the proceeds of her sole showed her to be much better off than Imagined, and a great many creditors who had been slumbering awoke at the news, and swooped down upon her like hawks. "It had been thought that MIbs Mar tinot was 'broke,' or nearly so. Well, she Is far from it. She still has $30,000 or $10,000 worth of diamonds and Jewelry that she did not even show nt the Bale.'1 If Miss Vcrnont Jarbcau told reporters and other people that she knew tnat Miss Martinot hod been divorced and married again she was either deceived or doing n kind turn for a friend. Auctioneer Krelser Is continuing, In a desultory fashion, at 9 West Twenty eighth street, the disposal of Miss Martlnot's goods. Yesterdny he sold a milking stool nnd churn for $4.50. These had been employed by the actress In the piny of "Pompadour. To-day he ofTers Miss Martlnot's horses, carriages, hurness, saddles, rid ing habits and one lino Aldernev cow with a pedigree. Tho cow originally be longed to Sunt. Byrnes, who sold It to Mnnager II. C. Miner, who In turn dis posed of It to Miss Martinot. It Is Miss Martlnot's Intention to star Jointly with Mr. Figman In first-class dramnn nnd comedies, a la Mr. and Mrs. Kendal. DIVORCE FOR AN AUTHORESS.

Whnt Wnn tlio IIcKlnntng? To tht Editor. In rtplf to m) critical opponent Mr. Crollf X repeat that "the Dlble and telenet mutually acree In saj-lni that thin, our world, waa not created." Accord. nt to science, "the particles of matter which com pone the solar sritem, after becoming a highly he led, reviving mats, threw off cer tain portions of lis bulk, from one of which our planet was formed. According to Scripture property translated "In (or with) the 'beglnnlns'.' (that Is, In or with the substance already exist ing) God cut out (or modelled) the heat en and the earth" (Hen 1, t.) Hence It follows, that Inas much as both science and Bible agree In there existing a prior substance from which our planet was formed. It, according to their account, was certainly not created. Dut Mr. Crolly, evidently misunderstanding the rrat question under dis cussion. Introduces another when he speaks of "the spiritual creitloo of the solarsyBtem from an ethereal substance, and the Creator himself as being an ultimate reality exlstlg up on htgh as self-consctousnesr" If, as Mr. Crolly aa)R, "to create" means "to produce a material thing from nothing," I am at & losa to understand how he determines that the solar system was created, when It Is evident that Its ethereal ancestor must Itself have had a birthday. With regard to the assertion that the Creator Is an ultimate reality In selfconsclouness, may I ask my able critic what the Creator was originally? And whence the knowledge to assume that ultimate existence? And this, when the first pure crea tion really occurred, and how? A- KAPLAN. London Clerk Have Good Times. To the Editor: Having been a clerk In London's largest and most respectable dry-goods house. I can testify to the general accuracy of "English Baleman's" statement We mustered our own rifle corps, cap tained by the head of the firm; also, an ama teur fire brigade, which at times rendered con spicuous services In adjacent neighborhoods. Our cricket club furnished one of the best amateur elevens In the metropolis, and our rowing club produced eights that had won trophies on the Thames against no mean antagonists. We boasted a library, reading-room, smoking and billiard rooms. The fine band connected with the rifle corps played In the dining-room about three evenings each week. As your correspondent says, black, although In some cases not compulsory. Is generally adhered to. N'o white ties art worn now.

To the Editor: If "Dalmato-Servlan" vrlll read the history of England he will find the divine right to rebel written on every page; but Englishmen are at wayn ready to unite at a moment's notice to repel the common enemy, Tlecause a man hap pens to be born In China does that make htm a Chinese. George Washington and his comrades had a perfect rlht to oust Dutch George If they could do It; and plenty more English In the old country would have liked to do It, too. This country has beat the parent In some ways, but e can learn from our mother yet, and It's an un grateful child who scorns those to whom he owes his energy and Independence and makes us what we are to-day. The proudest men In our country are those whose Tetns are filled with Kngllah blood. AMERICAN. Iillllnn'a Tvro Vldltorai. To the Editor: Will some of your readers kindly Inform mt what I should do, X am a young lady, eighteen years of age, and have two rtry ardent admtrsrs. I like them both and want to keep them as my friends, but I do not know what to do. When one comes to see me the other Is sure to come at the same time, and when they meet they act very coldly to each other, and to me, too, hardly speaking a word all night, and then both remain away for about two weeks. Whenever I meet one ot them, he Is very attentive to me and very entertaining, but when they meet at my house they glare at one another like two lions. Will any one please tell mt what I can do to make them friends and to keep them as my friends, for they become very angry with me It X am just aa nice to one as to the other. LILLIAN F. Q., Harlem. Tlioiie Abomlnnlile Ilellsi. To the Editor: I wish to Join with "Equal nights' In his protest against the abominable clanging of the bells on St. Michael's Church. I do not play billiards, neither do I ahake dice, I spend my evenings and 8undays at home with my family, and when we have our windows open those bells are really awful. They are badly out of tune, as every one with any musical education must admit, and to Invade people's homes and .assail their ears with such doleful and barbarous sounds Is an outrage and Imposition.

To the Editor: In "Manhattan's" libel against Dr. Madison C, refers he has attacked one ot the most con scientious, true-hearted and hard-working clergy men In the city, I am a member of the Episco pal Church, and although I love that Church creed I can still admire and appreciate true Christian fellowship In any church of any de nomination, and can say without any disloyalty to my own church that I never had more hearty welcome extended towards me than that received In the nioomlngdale Ileformed Church, The truth Is seldom palatable, and aa Dr. Peters his a habit ot striking out straight trom tht shoulder he has, ot course, made enemies. Yours for truth, LENOX. Not "Stuffs" Nor "Kouodlea." To the Editor: "John Tilu Dull' says this country "was stolen" from England "by force." la not that a strange assertion for an Englishman to make? It he was more familiar with American history and knew what kind ot men the Continental troops were composed of he would not be so ready to acknowl edge that handful of raw., untrained men, In fact, the very kind ot men that he calls "stuffs," and "nobodies," was the "force" that wrested this glorious country from a tyrant's grasp and caused hts wetl-trslned troops an Ignomlntous retreat from our shore. Oh, "Johnnie I" go Invest a few cents In an American history, and It that bull head of ours Is capable ot absorbing It you will not regret the Investment. YANKEE. Wheelmen n ml -Wheelmen.

The Fruit Diet. Fruits are generally healthful; they cool the blood, and, by their aperient qualities, aid In digesting other foods, but they do not agree with all systems; In that Instance they produce a sour stomach, ferment Instead of be ing digested, cause Irritation and often produce eruptions on the Bkln. Unripe and decayed fruits are not eatable, but good fruits are generally wholesome. A well person must know what to eat and what not to eat to remain so. The Fit ot Gowns in the Dnclc "The first thing I say to a woman," says an authority on physical culture and Its attendant ethics, "when she comes to me for advice and sugges tion, Is, Turn your back to me.' It Is remarkable how few women present a good-looking back, straight and shapely, with shoulder tips In line, elbows not poking, hips even, and no protruberant shoulder-blades. In one of her stories Mrs. Cruger makes a clever, fashionable woman, who Is displaying a Worth gown to some friends, ask anxiously: 'Is the back right?" and when told that It Is the perfection of elegant fit In the back say with relief: 'Then I shall keep It.' One has so many resources to conceal an lll-flttlne front one's arms and hands, a bow of ribbon and the Uk but the back Is hopeless and must be above reproach, or words of similar ef fect. Mrs. Cruger Is quite right, and she might havo gone further. The back Is not only the crucial test of a woman's gown: It is also of her general appear ance. A good back is very rare. Watch women on tho street, and you will be surprised to Bee how few will own one. Ituilu. A species of bread for Invalids and In fants, now widely sold In this city and Brooklyn, is native to the German quar ter, where it Is mado at all the bakeries. It is originally a slightly sweetened dough, which Is baked one day and when twenty-four hours old Is cut into thin slices and toasted long In the oven until dry through and through. It la known among the doctors as rusk, and is given to Infants and Invalids crumbled In milk. Adults In normal health And It very good. Don't Fool Willi Files. Begin the campaign early In the sea son. Proclaim war on every straggler that appears. Don't tempt them to come. Starve them out. See to It that the table Is cleared oft the moment the family are done eating. If the meal has to wait for a late comer, cover the table with a square of cheese cloth. Leave no crumbs on the floor. Put cooking dishes Into soak as soon as through with; It keeps the files out and helps the dishes. Don't let the children scatter crumbs when they eat lunch. A few crumbs make a square meal for many flies. Put the garbage pall as far away from tho back door as possible. Put as little Into It as possible. Burn or bury all you can. Set on old colander In the sink, put In It all the accumulating parings ot vege tables, orange and lemon peels, egg shells, and let them drain and partly dry..

The prettiest, -t colors are navy and light blue, red, pink, tan, blown, cream, delicate green, .& and pale lavender.

H Catchlnir and Carina; a Cold. I Catching cold Is as easy as falling off a log, but It s not necessary to keep II It caught. With the cold comes the con- . S sciousness of possession. Then Is ths Wl time to begin the cure. The first jM requisite Is a higher temperature. Turn on th heat, cover up warmly, take a lively walk, go through little exercise, drink a cup of hot tea, milk, lemonade, -I chocolate or anything but alcohol to pro- M mote perspiration; If It Is possible to sat jH to sleep In a blanket or two the cold- jjK will be gone In an hour. Another curs ''S Is to take Ave or ten grains of quinine, H and a hot drink on retiring and sleep In JU a. woollen gown; on rising take another HK five-grain pill and one half an hour be- 5H fore meals. If the diet Is laxative in Bf character thirty grains of quinine used UJJ this way with an ounce of common sensa U will cure the biggest fresh cold. U Grape Frntt. L, drape fruit Is more popular year by, vls year, and It Is recommended by phy- ll slclans as better as a breakfast fruit 9 than the orange. It Is considerably, M more expensive when bought In small fl quantities than the orange. But, on ths aLj other hand, no one cares to eat mora than half a large grape fruit at break fast, so that for practical purposes It becomes cheaper than most other fruits. The fruit masquerades under half a dozen different names, as pomelo, hum melo, pompelmars and shaddock. The lost Is the name of the largest variety. It is grown In Florida, and will one day, 1 be a great deal cheaper than It Is now. J Daily's Welsh.
