THOSE INTERESTED IN THE SYSTEM DE
SIRE TO EXTEND ITS INFLUENCE
The circulation of book? m the public schools of
this city is fast becoming a feature of the system.
an 3it Is hoped by Dr. Henry M. Leipzig-- r and many
others, to whose efforts is due the present success
of the undertaking, that in a time not far distant
every schoolhouse shall have space set aside for
In many classrooms there are now permanent col
lections of books for circulation among the pupils
■upon subjects co-ordinating with the courses of.
study. They have been provided by the special
fund of $60,000 supplied annually by the city and
State for the purpose, each contributing J2C.000 of
About IS. OOO of this sum was employed during the
last year in putting libraries and readir.fr rooms
in four of the public schools— No. 30. East Eiphty
elghth-st., near Second-aye. ; No. C 3, West Twen
ty-elghth-Ei-: No. 160. Rivington-st.. and No. 90. in
The Bronx. These are intended mainly for adults,
and the reading rooms are open from " to 10 o'clock
every evening. The books in all cases were se
lected ■with especial reference to co-operation with
the subjects treated in the people's lecture course.
The Agullar Library, with its four branches; the
New-York Free Circulating Library and the Ca
thedral Library are all co-operating with the public
schools in the circulation of books. The Aguilar
Library has about seven hundred books in ten of
the public schools this year, and Miss Gertrude
Cohen, who is In charge of the travelling libraries
of that system, further aided the teachers by pre
paring graded lists of books suited to the various
departments. These lists contained fiction, history,
biography, travel, science and nature books.
The outcome of the study of the Indian by many
of the classes has resulted in an enlarged demand
for books on ethnology. Miss Cohen has found the
favorites among the school children to be mythol
ogy. Norse. Greek and Roman stories, and Cooper's
and Scott's novels Too many copies of "LUtle
Women" and of fairy tales cannot be furnished. In
the h:gh schools biographies are in especial de
Ar. interesting fact in connection with the work
is the preference shown on the lower East Side
for standard works and the distaste for light
reading. The people in that quarter of the city
are cither studying American life and institu
tion or the philosophy of life. If they read fiction
they want standard works from such writers as
Dickens. Thackeray, Scott. Cooper and George
The Aguilar Library circulated last year 16. 5*0
books through the medium of thirty-three schools
The travelling library department of the New-
York Public Library is supplying twenty-five
public schools and twenty Industrial schools of the
Female Guardian Society. Th<> Cathedral Library
Is furnishing books to about thirty public schools.
The books are sent to the schools at the first
cf the school year. and remain there until its close.
As a rule, the principal's assistant looks after the
books In each building. Th*y are distributed
once a week, and while the children are the only
ones to whom the books an lent, the parents in
many instances arc also the readers. Not infre
quently a child says at th« end of the week. "I
have read the book, but my mamma has not fin
ished it yet."

CHRISTMAB JOY FOR THE POOR.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: A friend asked me the other day where I
found the poor to help. I answered. "At the Pro-
Cathedra!, on Stanton and Essex sts.. where the
Rev. Robert L. Paddock is giving his life and best
energy to help those who are suffering- actual pri
vations. There five cents which one may save from
an extra car ride will purchase six rolls for break
fast, when- otherwise there would be no food." It
is indeed a privilege to be able to do something- at
this Christmas time to help the needy. If any one
is not well, but yet is strong enough to go out and
try to cheer some saddened home on the East Side
of our city, let him try it and see if In helping others
there is not a ■.:-.! for "his own suffering. Go to
any of the charitable societies and ask for the a.d
dresses of the needy poor. Help them, and see
what brightness will be brought to your own home
by so doitiff. Yours truly, F. K. C.

FOR THREE NEW PARKS.
ONE OF THE RESOLUTIONS OF THE
MUNICIPAL ASSEMBLY IS TO PRE
SERVE THE JUMEL MANSION.
Th» Board of Aldermen at its meeting yesterday
adopted a resolution providing for a park in the
Fourth "Ward. Brooklyn, to cost about $363,000.
Alderman Fleck brought up the old resolution
calling for $180,000 for the Department of Street
Cleaning. Alderman Mclnness said the only reason
for again bringing up the resolution was to get the
articles (dumps, horses, blankets, etc.) without pub
lic letting. Alderman McCall denied this, and said
it was absolutely Impossible for the present ad
ministration to award the contracts.
"If this Commissioner." said Alderman McCall.
"is the terrible criminal that the minority says h»

torney should Investigate and have him impris
The resolution was lost by a vote of 3." to 12.
In the Council a resolution providing that the
name of Franklin-aye., Brooklyn, be changed to
Elghteenth-ave. was adopted.
An ordinance providing for a public park in the
First Ward. Borough of Queens, was adopted. An
ordinance providing for the laying out of a park
on the land bounded by Edgecombe Road, West
One-hundred-and-sixtleth-st.. Jump! Terrace and
West One-hundred-and-sixty-second-st.. was passed.
On this land is the old Jumel mansion.
Councilman Leich introduced the following:
Whereas, The members of the first and only
council of the city of New-York having discharged
their duties of the office to whir-h we were elected
with zeal and fidelity to ourselves, if not to our
constituents, therefore be tt
Resolved, That we tender to each other a vote ol

self-adulation are undeserved.
This caused considerable laughter, and was de

SEEKING PROPER STREET SIGNS.

COMPANIES MAY HE ASKED
TO FURNISH THEM.
Jacob A. Cantor, Borough President-elect, yester
day afternoon, at his office, bad a conference with
Nelson S. Spencer. Milo R. Maltbie and Charles R.
Lamb, representing the Fine Arts Federation and
Hi- Municipal Art Society. The subject under dis
cussion was equipping the city with proper street
Signs. As a result of the conference Mr. Cantor

and pay for them from a necessary appropriation;
second, to have the illuminating companies that
lisht tiie streets erect the necessary' signs at thetr

If the latter course should be adopted it would
mean a competition between the gas and electric
lighting people, and the matter would be open to
competitive bidding. The Edison company already
has submitted sample signs. Mr. Cantor said that
the men who called on him yesterday would consult
with him again soon after Christmas. He added
that it was practically decided that signs attached
to house corners would DOt answer the purpose. He
thought that illuminated signs attached to gas or
electric light poles would be necessary to meet the

was unaware that the matter had been taken up by

memorial to the Municipal Assembly, pointing out
the necessity for a propel designation of the streets
and making' certain suggestions a:; to the manner of
designation. Including a suggestion that any design
or designs should t-e subject to the approval of the
Municipal Art Commission. In a subsequent memo

to the Fine Arts Federation, the Federation referred
it to the accredited delegates to the. Federation
from the Municipal Art Society, consisting of John

HAGAN GOES OCT IN A RAGE
COMMISSIONER LANTRY DISMISSES THE
WARDEN FOR ABUSIVE LANGUAGE
TO MR. FANNING.
James J. Hagan. Warden of the Tombs pri3on.
was dismissed from his office yesterday for in
subordination. Called to the office of the Com
missioner of Correction and asked to absent
himself from the Tombs pending an investiga
tion of the prison, he hurled abusive language
at Deputy Commissioner Fanning, and declared
that he would refuse to leave the Tombs. Com
missioner Lantry then dismissed him from office.
Hasan was in a ra;e when he went to the
office of Cimmlssioner Lantry about 10 a. m.
Hp had been surprise^ by the appearance of
Warden Fallon of the penitentiary with several
keepers at the Tombs, and had lrarned that Mr.
Fallon had been sent there to take marge pend
ing an Investigation of the prison management
by Mr. Fanning. In the office of Commissioner
Lantry there was a stormy scene after Hagan
arrived there. Hasan demanded the right to be
at the investigation in the Tombs. Commis-
signer Lantry. in Mr. Fanmna:'s presence, ?aid
he had anthortzed the investigation by Mr. Fan
ning, and wanted Hagan to absent himself for a
I'-a Jays whiie the investigation was in prog
ress. fiatfsn raved and protested. Snaking his
finger at Mr. Fanning he roared:
"I don't recognize his authority. 1 protest
against having my reputation assailed by a
coward and a sneak— a cowaraly sneak- who is
looking out for himself. I am innocent and I
defy him. I repeat what I said: he is unfair, he
is a toward. I am not supplanted as Warden
of the Tombs. I am in authority there. I have
rights, and I am going to stand up fur them. I
will be heard. I am not supplanted, no matter
what he says.''
Mr. Fanning- said that Hagan had made him
self liable to dismissal by his language, and Mr.
"Warden Hagan. if there were not charges
against you which I want to give you an oppor
tunity to defend, I would dismiss you."
"I court dismissal," Hagan responded. "lie
would have the public believe I am guilty of
wrongdoing, and I won't stand for It."
"If you make another assertion like that, you
will be dismissed."
"I am ready to accept dismissal."
"You are dismissed, " said Mr. Lantry. "You
are removed as Warden of the Tombs."
"All right, " Hagan said. Then, making a
threatening movement toward Mr. Fanning, he
said: "I intendt to give vent to my feeiings. I

In the afternoon Hagan took his personal ef

WANTS INJUNCTION VACATED.
COMMISSIONER KEATING WOULD LIKE TO
GIVE OUT PAVING CONTRACTS BE
FORE HE RETIRES.
Assistant Corporation Counsel Stapleton will on
December 21 make a motion before Justice Marean
in the Brooklyn Supreme Court, for an order
vacating the injunction restraining Commissioner
Keating from advertising for bids or letting con
tracts for asphalt pavement in this city. Justice
Marean asked if it would not be better to move the
case for trial before the Special Term, saying
that he could not consider the case on its merits
• the end of the term. Mr. Stapleton naid ha
was wlilinjr to stand or fall on a motion for'dia
mlasal if the court would decide the case on its
merits. Commissioner Keating, he said, had been
in office for four years, and did not wish to retire
with any siur upon his reputation.
Commissioner Keating says that the total ex
of the paving and repaying for which bids
had been called for would not exceed $93,600. He
also denies that the specifications limit competi
tion to the Asphalt Trust. The Increased cost of
paving he attributes to the eight hour law and the
prevailing rate of wages act.
