Bioodsworth, his father, who lives in
Salisbury, Md. The youngster was in
charge of Mr. and Mrs. W. Dana Biglow,
of No. 134 West BSd street. Mr. Biglow
being the half-brother of the boy's mother,
who died a short time ago.
According to the police. Bloodsworth was
a man who worked about two weeks each
year carrying lumber for a mill In Salis
bury. He and his wife, it is said, were al
ways quarrelling, and finally conditions be
came so bad that Mrs. Bloods-worth wrote
to Mrs. Biglow appealing for help. The
latter replied by sending clothes end suffi
dent money for her to come to New York.
Mrs. Bloodsworth agreed to the plan and
came here in July with her son. The Big
lows say that the woman was in an emaci
ated condition and very ill.
The most experienced physicians In cases
or the kind were called upon to minister to
the woman, but all their efforts proved un
availing, and she died on September 30. The
day before , <-r death Mrs. Bioodsworth
asked Mrs. »?iglow to assume the guardian
ship of the child, and she promised to do so.
Word was then sent to the father, who
attended the funeral, and. it la alleged,
afterward consented to the arrangement his
wife had made. The Biglows pay that he
told them that he wished his child to have
a good education and knew that they could
give it to him.
A few weeks ago Mrs. Bielow learned
that Bloods th imri received a sum of
money from a lodge to which he belonged
to be used in th» burial of his wife. As
the Biglows had paid all the funeral ex
panses. Mrs. Biglow Immediately surmised
that the father would come to New York
and perhaps try to take his son away,
Later she found out that her fears were
about to be realized, as she was informed
that Bloodsworth was on his way to this
city and was determined to obtain the boy.
This news placed her on her guard, and
yesterday afternoon when the door bell
rang and she heard some one inquiring for
her she at once recognized the voice as
that of Bioodsworth, and sitrnalicd the maid
to say that no one was at home. Bloods
worth walked away, and Mrs. Biglow then
gave the child to its maid, who carried him
into the yard at the rear of the house.
Then she mounted a stepiadder and
climbed over into the adjoining yard. Leav
ing the boy there, she went to the front of
the house, where she saw Bioodsworth and
four other men making an attempt to
enter Frightened at the sight, she dashed
back to the yard, brought her stepiadder
ii-to play again, and carried the boy over
the fence at the rear of No. 138.
No sooner had she safely landed on the
other side than Bioodsworth and the men
with him darted into the yard she had left.
The nurse rushed for the back door of No.
US, and after explaining the situation to the
occupants was allowed to go to the roof.
Peering over the edge, she saw that she
had been discovered, so she picked up the
boy and leaped over the ledge to the ad
joining roof. Then she made her way
across that to the roof of the BtgfowV
In the mean time hundreds had gathered
in the street watching the manoeuvres of.
B1 Isworth as he dashed from one house
in another with his men and the tliaht over
the r oofs made by the woman and child.
K-TiaHv some one sent in an alarm to Po
lice Headquarters that an attempted kid
napping was going on, and police were "ent
(Vest 68th street station. Wlien
they arrived, however. Bioodsworth and
those with him had sped away in a taxlcab.
Mr. Biglow said last nicht that he would
ler the child unless the court
ordered him to do so. as he retarded
iworth as unfit morally to Ktve him

Commission Thinks Teachers
Should Be Paid for Work.
The commission on teachers' salaries
made its report to Mayor Gaynor and the
Board of Estimate and Apportionment yes
terday. For the last nine months the com
mission has teen struggling with the prob
lems of equal pay for equal work. The
salient points In the report are a recom
mendation that the number of schedules
for the payment of salaries be greatly re
duced and the entire salary plan simplified;
a square declaration in favor of th© pay
ment of salaries on the basis of position,
and recommendations for salary Increases
amounting to a total of $1,700,377. Accord
ing to the commission's plan 93 per cent of
this Increase is to go to the women teach
ers and 7 per cent to the men.
The commission was appointed by the
Bo"ard of Estimate and Apportionment on
February 4. It consists of Clinton I* Ros
slter and Mrs. Frank EL f'othren. of Brook
lyn; Dr. Leonard P. Ayres. Dr. Lee K.
Frankel and James M. Glfford. of Man
hattan. Mr. Rossiter is chairman and Mrs.
Cothren is secretary.
Amontr the more important finding." are
that the proportion of men to women
tenehers hap for a number of years been
steadily increasing in Blew York city, and
that salaries in practically all scrades are
higher here than in any other city, al
thouKh some of the other cities are rapidly
overtaking; New York in thts respect. A
further result of the investigations is a
■ lecipion that the present bepinninjr salary
of JGOO received by women teachers In this
city is not, properly speaking, a living
T'nder the head of "sex comparisons." the
commission has conducted a number ( »f
Studies to discover the relative efficiency
of men and women teachers. One result
!« the fact that promotion and attendance
on the part of children are practically
equal in schools under men and women
An investigation of the records of V*> men
and 150 women teachers chosen by chance
shows that while the men make a better
showing, the differences are SO slight as to (
be insignificant. The only exception is the i
matter of absences.
The commission reports:
Conditions of justice and of expediency
lead us to the conclusion that salaries ;
should be based on position. This can be
brought about without the reduction of
present salaries, without reducing the num- !
her of men employed and without increased I
cost. Althougli we find that, numerous in- :
creases are desirable, a salary based on
position does not of itself entail increased i
expense. If consists in defining the work I
to he done for a given salary and assigning j
teachers to do that kind of work. The j
change is one cf nomenclature, not one of
salary rates. The plan which we recom
mend to bring about payment on the basis
of position without increased cost is. in
bri»f, as follows .
(a) One salary schedule for the payment
of teai hers of all children from the kinder
garten through the sixth grade and of girls
in the seventh and eighth grades. This
schedule to provide for salaries substantial
ly equal to those now paid to women teach
ers in the elementary grades.
i ln One salary schedule for the payment
of teachers of boys in the seventh and
eighth grades. This schedule to provide
for salaries substantially equal to those
now paid to men teacher? in the elementary
schools. '
(c) Salary schedules for th«» payment of
elementary principals graduated according
to the size' of the school.
(d) Salary schedules for teachers of spe
cial branches, based on th* kind of work
done In thn« branches where some of
the teachers do work of a supervisory
nature salary schedules should he divided
so *-• to make possible additional remunera
tion for this more difficult work. This situa
tion occurs in the cases of teachers oi
music, physical training and sewing and In
spectors of public school athletics.
' ie. One salary schedule for the merit
of teachers of girls In high schools. This
to provide for salaries substantially equal
to those now paid to women teacher* in
hl m "erne 'salary schedule for the payment
of teachers of boys in high schools. This
to provide for salaries substantially equal
to those now paid to men teachers in high
The commission thinks that the lowest
salary for a teacher should be $720.
Four Counterfeit Notes Turned

Dangerous counterfeits of Ji" bills are in

four samples of banknot.-s yesterday. They
were forwarded to the Secret Service office
by the Grand street branch Of the State

in the ordinary course of business. The
counterfeits are of two kinds. One

of the Tasadena National Bank.
The notes are made by the photographic
mechanical process, and consist of two
sheets of paper, between Which are in

chief defect is in the coloring. The face is

Sir Kdward H. Holden. the London
banker and chairman of th* foreign bank
ers' bill of ladlna: committee, wha has been
here conferring with American bankers In
an effort to find a solution of the cotton
bill of lading trouble, made a statement
at the Holland House last night covering
the situation. Amon» other things, he said
that, pending a better understanding, the
present date of expiration of the validity
of the form of cotton bills of lading now
used had been extended from October 31
to December 31.
"Since Thursday last," the statement
says, "communications have been received
from so many of the interior bankers in
the states agreeing generally to a guar
antee by a guarantee, surety or insurance
company being given to the European
bankers that Sir Edward Holden. who has
been negotiating with the American bank

bankers to extend the date for the negotia

being considered necessary for the perfec

bills of lading, and which will also protect
the European bankers from the issue ot

railway companies, and of whom the rail
way companies can have no cognizance.

He is vitally Interested in the forwarding
of some plan To protect the English runn

has been here mucn has been stM to re

At a meeting attended by Sir Edward tne ;
American banking committee and repr^- ,
sentatives of the leading cotton bttarajts
at the Corn Exchange Bank last Thursday
it was decided that the best plan would be
to form a eompanv to guarantee the cotton
bills. The company will be supported joint
ly by the American and British bankers,
and will necessitate a cost Of from •> to ,
cents for each hale of cotton. Trie guaran
tee of the new company, it w-as said, would
undoubtedly prove satisfactory to the ex
change purchasers, and will be made in the
form required by the European acceptors.
There was a conference of the banKers
and cotton men yesterday, but Sir Edward
did not attend It. He wired his suggestions
of the time extension to his associates in
England yesterday afternoon, but their an
swer was delayed until late last night.
owing to the fact that some of the mem
