President. LIBRARY WORK TX SCHOOLS 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 the purpose. 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 the amount 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 mand. 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 Eliot. The Aguilar Library circulated last year 16. 5*0 books through the medium of thirty-three schools and libraries. 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." SUGGESTIONS FOR SHOPPERS.

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. New-York.

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» Is. he should be in State's prison. The District At torney should Investigate and have him impris oned." 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 thanks, knowing full well that said thanks and self-adulation are undeserved. This caused considerable laughter, and was de clared out of order by President Guggenhebner. SEEKING PROPER STREET SIGNS. CITT MAT MAKE THEM OR ILLUMINATING 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 said he waa now considering two main propositions: First, •' r • tty to have appropriate signs made and pay for them from a necessary appropriation; second, to have the illuminating companies that lisht tiie streets erect the necessary' signs at thetr • aa a partial consideration for the lighting contra <-t. 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 public demand. In his recent communication to the Fine Arts Federation, asking its co-operation in the matter of securing proper street signs for the city. Mr. Cantor was unaware that the matter had been taken up by the Municipal Art Society early last spring. At that time the Municipal Art Society addressed a 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 rial it submitted a proposed ordinance embodying its H<--as of which the purpose was to compel the adoption of some si?ni for every street, on the build ings if possible, and if nut. on a post at the street corners. No ordinance has ever been passed by the Municipal Assembly. In response to the communication of Mr. cantor to the Fine Arts Federation, the Federation referred it to the accredited delegates to the. Federation from the Municipal Art Society, consisting of John De Witt Warner. Charles R. Lamb and Thomas Tryon. These, with the officers of the Fine Arts Federation who are ex-officio members of all com mittee,, met last Friday and organized a* a com mittee by the election ■■' Mr. Warner as chairman and -•- Lamb as secretary, and added to its number Nelson s Spencer and Milr. R. Mall le, who. with Mr Lamb formed the Municipal Art Society* committee on the subject, ar.i designated Mr. Spen cer Mr Lamb and Mr Maltble as an executive sub committee. This sub-committee, therefore, repre sents both the Municipal Art Society and the Fine Arts" Federation. Their efforts will result in res cuing the street < from the present disgraceful con dition with regard to signs. .-l DECISION AGAIXST A TENANT. :: VAN" BRUNT.

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. Lantry said: "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 ntver ivas a coward, but you are." Commissioner Lantry was obliged to threaten Hagan with arrest to make him ieave the .ifllce. In the afternoon Hagan took his personal ef fects out of the Tombs and went away, de claring that Mr. Fanning had not heard the last from him. Commissioner LAntry placed Mr. Flynn, the principal keeper, in charge of the Tombs as acting warden, and Mr. Fallon and his subordinates went back to the penitentiary before dark. Commissioner Lantry probably will not appoint another keeper of the Tombs in the short time remaining before he goes out of office. The next Commissioner of Correction, to be appointed by Mayor Low, will appoint a new- Warden. 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.
