It Is shown that some of tho statements ia the teachers' resolutions are Inaccurate, iliat others create a wiOtSfl impres sion, aud that ?till oiher objections to the unas ure do not affect the teachers in. the Isastt The main objection intiie teachers' minds Is uii<l<)tibt edly the abolition of the present Hoards of School Trustees, which constitute one of the most vicious features of the existing system. The reason why the tcai'hers co-opera to with tho trustees to ON vent tho abolition of the latter Is dosJT to ?ill familiar with our bchool system. The bill in question, which has passed the Ass? mbly, should ccrtaJuly receive favorable action in th ? Senate. Tl.ero was a eignlflcaut contrast between the Speeches <?f our Ambassadors at I.onilou ami Paris made at the banquet of the new American Society in Londm last evening Mr. l'ay.inl dwelt on what he termed the vigorous action ?if rresidcnt Cleveland In questions involving ih< honor of the United States abroad, and had minli to say In eulogy of "our chosen eh??1!" Mr. Kasiis's speech, on th?1 othtf hand, breathed :i spirit of genuine Americanism that was Keenly ajiprecintiil by bis bean-rs. Jn an lnlernaiioiial c.iiif.'ssliiiial he declared that th" sins of Ihe I'nited Stales would be. fiw and small, and lie painted In strong colors tin? difference bstWOSS our policy of equal justice lo all and the a?f?*f*rei slve spirit of the Kuroiiean Towers.
