A special meeting of the board of education to adjust several matters relating to the salaries of employes of the school system still pending has been called by Admiral Balrd for 4 p.m. today. It Is expected It will be a short meeting and that merely routine business will be transacted. There is, however, a possibility that the committee on rules may have its report rea.uy iur perusal Dy me iuii ooa.ru, anu 11 this is the case some interesting and significant action may be looked for at this time, for It is known that the rules committee. with the advice of Supt; Chancellor, has been preparing to recommend a number of radical changes in the rules to conform with the policy of the board to enfo-ce strict discipline throughout the school system, define autiiority and fix responsibility. A plan of the superintendent to create a board of supervision, composed of ten or twelve school officials, to which board questions of administration may be referred before being submitted to the board of education, may also be brought before the board this afternoon. In fact, it is likely that this plan will be included in the leport or the committee on rules. Mr. Cox is chairman of this committee and the other members are Capt. Oyster and Mr Cook. Vacancies to Be Filled. Written and oral examinations will be held by the board of examiners for the colored schools Friday and Saturday, November 2 and 3, in the Franklin building, to fill the following vacancies: One supervising principal of grammar schools, head of the department of English and history for high schools, one teacher of English and arithmetic in Normal School No. 'i, one teacher of German in high schools. For eligibility to examination candidates are required to qualify under one of the following: Graduation from an accredited college or university or graduation from an accredited normal or training school, together with at least five years of experience as a teacher in a high school. Candidates desiring to enter the above examinations must tile with the secretary of the board of examiners for colored schools, Armstrong Manual Training School, not later than October 31 a statement of their Intention to do so, together with evidence of their eligibility. The secretary is Robert N. Mattlngly. Colored People Protest. Arrangements have been made to hold a mass meeting of colored people next Monday evening at the Mt. Vernon Avenue Baptist Church to devise means for effectively protesting against what Is termed the illegal action of the board of education In summarily dismissing employes of the school system without investigations. The chief speaker at a meeting last night In Galbraith Zion Church, at which this decision was reached, was Rev. Dr. S. L. Corrothers, who severely denounced the school board, including the three colored members. Resolutions were adopted at this meeting last night to the effect that "as citu sens we have viewed with alarm the many abuses an 1 irregularities practiced by the present board of education and its officers, and have expressed our condemnation of the same. The recent action in the case of Supervising Principal F. L. Cardozo in dismissing him without a hearing, and the intimations given through the press and otherwise of the contemplated appointments are nothing less than scandalous Jobbery. Therefore, we most earnestly protest against the exploitation of the public schools for the personal and private benefit of some of the members of the board of education, and denounce as false and malicious the representations which have been put forth as an excuse for such contemplated action; and we appeal to the sense of decency of the whole public to condemn sur'h nrop^pflincs and that the nnmmlttoo views with disappointment and disgust the silence of the colored members of the board of education to the reflection and misrepresentations made by the superintendents and other members of the board relative to the condition of the colored schools, and that. Inasmuch as our chosen representation have failed to lift their voices In protest to the false and slanderous attacks upon our schools, we deny that our schools are in any more 'deplorable condition' than the white schools of the city, or that they are In any greater need of sweeping or cleaning out." SPEAKERS WERE EARNEST.

As Is required by the law the protestants are residents and owners of property within 200 feet of the site of the proposed garage, and they claim that the necessary signatures of 75 per cent of residents and property owners within 200 feet -have not been procured, and that the Commissioners, therefore, should not issue the permit. Mrs. M. S. Van Fussen is the applicant for the permit. It was testified that she owns a garage adjoining the site of the proposed establishment. It was brought out :it the henriner that the reason thp nna?. ent garage was granted a permit was that it was Issued with the understanding that the garage was to be a private one, the consent of property owners under such instances not being necessary. It was asserted that the establishment has been used as a public garage. Several of the protestants, aside from complaining about the alleged nuisance of a garage, declared tliat the erection of such a building and Its operation in a residential neighborhood would result In depreciation of the value of the property and would mean a financial loss to the property owners interested. Gov. William P. Kellogg, the owner of the property upon which it is proposed to erect the garage and of considerable other property in the vicinity, and who favored the issuance of the permit, scoffed the idea that^ property would be depreciated by the es-~* o Vill.-Viin ~ V. ^ vauu^iiiiig ui v??c (aia(c He expressed the opinion that the erection of a garage In that neighborhood would be an accommodation to the many owners of automobiles living within a radius of a mile. He stated that it was almost a public necessity and that the Commissioners should not stand In the way of the "onward march of public progress," even though the regulations do require the consent of a certain majority of the property owners within 200 feet. Some of the speakers were so earnest that Commissioner Macfarland, who presided, deemed it proper to interrupt and inform them that the various arguments about the garage being a nuisance and whether or not property in the neighborhood would be depreciated were unnecessary, as the whole matter rested upon the question of law and won iu oe seiuea accoramgiy Dy the Commissioners. The hearing was concluded by Commissioner West saying that the Commissioners would consider the papers in the case and would dispose of the matter according \o the provisions of the regulations governing the erection of automobile garages. Among those who spoke for the protestants were Messrs. Stuart McNamara, E. C. Brandenburg, Charles A. Merrilatt and Capt. Tyler. Building Permits Issued. Building permits were Issued by Inspector Ashford today as follows: To Arthur Carr, for three two-story brick dwellings at 1371 to 1375 E street southeast. Architect and builder, Arthur Carr.

"The Vanderbilt Cup" is a typical autonobile comedy. It starts with a rush and a latter and never allows the auditor to lause long enough to Inspect the works >r view the scenery. On the rise of the urtain the characters begin talking as ast as the organs of human speech will lermit, and the constant flow of quip and ong is not Interrupted until the curtain Inally drops with an unexpected bump and he orchestra strikes up the exit march .s a signal that a destination has been eached and the evening's tour through Nonsense land is at an end. One of the chief pleasures afforded by 'The Vanderbllt Cup" is the privilege of eeing "Little Elsie" growing up into the nore artistic maturity of "Miss Janis." rhe theater-going public must always have ome feminine divinity to worship, and his season Miss Janis is it. The admiralon bestowed upon a pretty, petite, vivaious girl defies analysis. It is a matter if common impulse and not of reason. It s enough to know that the little lady has ler public at her feet in blind devotion, t is. of course, in her mimicry that Miss Fanis excels; in this she is unsurpassed. Lucic id uxj uuuui iia iu iuc siuuinj ler pre-eminence in this piece. She is iscorted by a regiment of comedians whose oyal and courageous endeavors would asily suffice to defend apos.tion far less ;ecure. Otis Harlan bubbles, splutters and >rances about the stage, the very incarnaion of breezy hilarity; Charles Dow Clark >ortrays a rural type that is comic withlut being hackneyed. Henry V. Donnelly, >ortly, yet not ponderous, contributes a ouch of legitimate comedy as well as a prinkle of song and dance; Jacques Kruger ntroduces an audacious caricature of John 5. Rockefeller, and F. Newton I-iindo Is ndulged In a rather irreverent impersona ion of his religiously inclined son, and ial De Forrest represents the explosive "renchman. without whom no musical com dy is complete. There are clever women n the company, too. Miss Blanche Chapnan being melodiously at home in the more esponsible musical numbers, and Ella Haton proving robustly comic as the girl porer in a woman's hotel. And besides these here is a moving picture display .a quartet hat utters dulcet strains in the moonIght and the usual list of Grac'es, Daisys, -.eonas, Elolses. etc.. to make up a stage ull of femininity. One of the minor roles. hat of a grotesque spinster, stands forth vith such humorous d'stlnctness that it hould be more clearly identified than it s on the program. "The Vanderb'-lt Cup" las no lofty aims nor definite purposes, t will suggest no higher philosophies nor ncite any race riots. But the chances are hat any one who seee it w.ll find somehing and perhaps many things in Its nultltudlnous array of stage devices old .nd new to compel many a passing smile. Belasco Theater. Cleverly carpentered and right, clean far:ical fun Is the whimsical "Before and ^fter," in which Leo Ditrichstein elected o return to this city last evening. On its >revlous presentation the farce, which has ione of the coarseness so common in its tind, found widespread favor, and if the ipproval shown last night may be taken is an Indication it wifl enjoy another proslerous week in Washington. Love powders is a theme for comedy have been used beore. but the method of handling the subect In this play is none the less novel and imusing. Innumerable opportunities for broad and oarse farce are studiously avoided and the vhole playlet tingles with humor, infectious tna ieicning. ine piay is unootrusiveiy taged and exceedingly well, interpreted by . company far above mediocrity. Boniface, jr., is the James Jeffreys this reason. The role, which Is creative In a vay, could not have been In more com>etent hands. For the part of Odetta J3e "ere Mr. Ditrichstein has secured Miss Jean ^ewcombe this season, an actress of narked beauty and much finis-h. The star Umself was in good form, as he invariably s. "Before and After" is preceded by a leverly satirical curtain raiser entitled 'Nocturno," by Percival Pollard and Leo ditrichstein. Columbia Theater. The Virginian, at the Columbia Theater, ast evening, began its third Washington ngagement, and the popularity of the 100k and its dramatized version was atested by an enthusiastic audience. Lovers if Owen AVister's novel cannot fail to be ileased with the making of the play, for he skill with which the stories of the resUA lfnlKn Tl'rv/v/1 S ? C 1L. UC U1 1UU111C T? WU XI Ulll UlUWUIIlg, Ul liie nixing up of the babies; of Emily, the hen; f Delmonlco's frog ranch, the lynching of Steve and "Spanish," and the shooting of 'rampas. episodes in themselves, have been iven dramatic presentation, quite satisfies he imagination of the reader, and fully eallzes the local color of Wyoming. Probably the main charm of the play Is he truth with which ranch life is given, 'here are ranch owners, foremen, cowboys nd visitors; its christenings, dances, shootngs. cattle raids, and the accompaniment f clanking spurs and jingling harness, ?ild whoops and breath of saloons. It is all ut of the west, and of the real quality, and hat human nature under all conditions etaina much that is lovable and fine is hown not only by the manliness of the Virginian and his love for the little Yankee chool teacher, who teaches the boys the Vermont turndown, but also by the spirit f uncondemning brotherhood of the posse hat regretfully and remorselessly hang Iteve to the pine tree. Dustin Farnum makes an interesting picure of breezy capacity, humor and coraiact honesty. Frank Uampeau, as Trampas. supplies all he realism necessary. The subtlety of his mpersonation is such that one finds oneself onsidering not what he is doing, but what le is. He creates the illusion of visions? owboy life with no distracting lapses Into he mere actor. Chase's Theater. Periods of intense quiet, alternating with loments of vociferous applause, were the ule last evening at Chase's Theater, paricularly during the act of Col. Gaston iordeverry, announced as "the king of Irearms." Col. Bordeverry's act includes hn clinAtinc nf a r? OVPnincr Pnctumo frnm Itv, D11VVV11IQ VI ?* ? V t VVUVUIK^ AAVilA . lady assistant and the playing of seleclons on a specially constructed piano. An expose of the methods employed by ohn T. Fay and Eva Fay in their coneption "Thaumaturgy," by M. Granat, t>. ierbert and Madam Gertrude, who style hemselves "The Phays," and their act 'Flamaturgy," proved interesting. Paul -a Croix, with the assistance of a number f hats, entertained for the allotted period, lareena. Nevare and Mareena presented a omedy athletic turn that was a welcome lovelty, principally because it was free rom boisterousness. Gillett's musical dogs nd baboons disported themselves with .lmost human intelligence. Joseph and Jertha Adelman rendered Xylophone seections and the program concluded, as isual, with vitagraph pictures. Majestic Theater. A crowded house last night bore evidence hat "The Black Crook" Is still a name o conjure with. The oM spectacle Is reIsed and brought up to date by Emmet VConnor, and staged with much detail ,nd elaborateness. Through four acts of glitter and gayety, lever dancing, acrobatic turns and buresque specialties, Herzog the Crook purues Rodolph and his fair Amlna with hts ld-tlme vlndlctlveness, only to be thwarted .t every turn by the timely intervention t Stal&cta, the stately queen of the fairies. The cast is in capable hands. Nellie Nichols and Robert Mack have many ipportunlties for good comedy touches, irhich they do not neglect. The English ioi>y ballet Is light of foot and graceful o look upon, and the four ?>onnazettas ;ive a finished) performance of plain and a.ncy tumbling. -Wallace Hopper as Herzog he Crook is as repulsive as any off his iredece?sors ever were, and plays the part rtth ability. On the whole, there is much o remind one of the days of Kiralify and 'auline Markham. "The Black Crook," Ike the circus, is ever new, and no one s too young or too oM to enjoy H. Academy of Music. "The Burglar's Daughter," a new me!oIraana by; Owen L>avi?, la the bill offered . ? at the Academy this week, and at the per formance last night much enthusiasm wai displayed by a large audience. The pla; Is slightly above the usual run of melo dramas, and Mr. Davis has put together ai interesting plot which deals with a girl o the slums who is rescued from her ?ur roundings and given a home with a min lster. It is the latter'* desire to place th< girl on an equality with himself. With th< minister's aid and' good surrounding* th< girl easily comes up to the minister's ex pectations. Before the play has been ci its way long the two find themselves li love. The villain of the play appears in the guise of the guardian of a blind girl wh< Is heiress to a large fortune. A race fo life between an automobile and a trolle; car provides the most exciting scene. New Lyceum Theater. "The Imperial Burlesquers" returned t< this city yesterday and opened for a week' engagement at the New Lyceum with tw< performances, matinee and night. "A Nigh in Paris," a farcical muslcale, was the firs skit on the program, and when this part o the show was concluded the audience wa. In n mprrv ttwwiH fn witness nn olio thft was above the average. Pauline Moran i the head liner, and made a hit. Gray ?n< Gram, as the musical bell boy and tlx military maid, captured the audience fron the start. Deonzo and McDonald, the com edy coppers; Murphy and Magee, two gooi Irish comedians, and Zlmmer, an amusini juggler, were all good, and received ai equal amount of applause. 'OfT to tlx Front" completed the performance. Tlx ctiipp tho hpst in tliP hurlfSnui line. FAMILY LOCATED. Officers Find Wife of Man Who Hac Been Bead a Week. William Schoneberger, superintendent o the morgue, yesterday succeeded In locatini friends of Henry D. Brown, who died at th< Washington Asylum Hospital a week ago In his Inquiry Mr. Schoneberger had the as sistance of Inspector Boardman and De tectlve Grant. The wife of Brown wa found at 'Ml R street northwest, and al though her husband had been dead a wecl and his body was In the morgue, Bhe ha< nnr hflon orlvisAil of It Rrnwn. wlio hat been employed as a bookkeeper for tli George Keen tailoring- establishment, lpf Ills home the mtfrnlng of the 14th of thl month and did not return. It Is said he hm remained away from home before and hi wife was not alarmed at his absence. Brown fell upon the sidewalk the da; mentioned at 8th and K streets northwest He was unconscious when he reached th Emergency Hospital, ine next aay ne wa transferred to the Washington Asylum Hos pital In order to make room for emergenc; cases at the Institution first named. Twen ty-four hours after he reached the Wash ington Asylum Hospital his death occurred Nothing was known about the relatives o the dead man and his body was removed t the morgue. Letters fo>\nd in the pocket of his clothing indicated that he had llvei at i>12 1st street northwest, but a pollcema; who went to that address failed to ascer tain anything about his family. A second effort to fiid relatives also failefl Brown has lived at the 1st street address but the occupants of the house were unabl to tell to what part of the city the famil; had gone. The superintendent of the morgue felt cer tain that the remains of Brown would b< claimed if his relatives could be located and he said he disliked very much to pu tne remains in a grave in potters neiu, uu yesterday there seemed to be no other al ternative. For a third time he sought th aid of the police. Inspector Boardman beini consulted. The latter sent Detective Grar. out to make an investigation, and In a shor time he succeeded in locating A. F. Kup pert, living at t>7 K street northwest, am J. W. Ryer of 1104 K street northeast brothers-in-law of the deceased. They were greatly shocked at hearing o the death of Brown. Mrs. Brown was toll of his death and arrangements were mad to have the body removed from the morgu to the family home. This was done till morning by Undertaker Wise. Arrange ments have been made for the funeral t take place tomorrow from the R stree home. It is likely that the body will be in terred in Mount Olivet cemetery. DISCRIMINATION IS CHARGED. Western Railways, It is Alleged, Favoi the Oil Trust. Complaints of discrimination in favor o the Standard Oil Company have been flle< with the interstate commerce commlssloi by the Merchants and Shippers' Associa tion of Denver. The complaint alleges tha the Denver and Rio Grande, Colorado Mid land, Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe, Chi cago, Burlington and Quincy, Chicago Rock Island and Pacific. Chicago am Northwestern, Colorado and Southern. Mis sourl Pacific and Union Pacific railway; have been subjecting the merchants, deal ers and shippers of Ueadville, Glenwoo< Springs and Grand Junction, in Colorado and intermediate points, to the payment o unjust and unreasonable rates. In man; cases the rates constitute greater compen sation In the aggregate for the transporta tion of different commodities under sub stantially similar circumstances and condl tions for the shorter distance to the Col orado points mentioned than for the longe haul over the same lines and in the sami direction to points in Utah, such as Ogdei and Suit Lake Citv. as far as Snanisl Fork. The Standard Oil Company alleges n< such higher rates for the short haul ar made in its case, the rate from Chicago ti Leadville for its products being the same a from Chicago to Ogden. "These commodities," says the petition, li referring to oil and oil products, "as you petitioner is informed, are absolutely con trolled and monopolized, both at wholesal and reta.il, toy a corporation known as th Standard Oil Company and its subsidiar; corporations. That the said company b; reason of Its great power and influence ha been able to exact concessions from the de fendant railroads, and In no case is a charg made for the transportation of oil, petro leum and oil products greater for the shor than for the long haul. In many instance a lower charge Is made for the transporta tion of their products for the short thai for the long haul." Relief against the discrimination and un just rates Is asked, but none from th charge of a higher rate for the short thaj for the long haul, as the new rate law doe not add anything to the old law In tha respect. NEW ZEALAND LETTERS. They Will Be Delivered in This Coun try for a Two-cent Rate. Postmaster General Cortelyou has issuei an order to the effect that on and afte November 1, proximo, letters originatln) In Vpw 7.P'jlan/1 and nrf?nalH hv nnRta^i stamps at the rate of 1 penny, or 2 cents for each half ounce, will -be delivered ti addressees in the United States withou surcharge or the collection of addltlona postage. The postmaster general of Nev Zeland, who is now prime minister, was i delegate to the universal postal conventioi at Rome, and on his return from the con ventlon called upon the Postmaster Gen eral and at that interview, as well as li recent correspondence, strongly urged thii concession in the interest of the peopli of New Zealand who desire to trade witl the United States, and who find them selves, at present, in the position of hav lng to pay 5 cents letter postage on cor respondence delivered in the United States while correspondence carried in the sam< vessel and transported across the terrltorj of the Un-ited States for delivery In Can arta and firwLt Britain is carried At th? rate of 1 penny, or 2 cents, per each hal: ounce. Since penny postage was established between Great Britain and her col onies, some years ago. the question of 2 cent postage between the United States anc Great Britain has been advocated by peopli on both sides of the Atlantic, but as yei no official action has been taken by etthei country. A substantial reduction authorliec by the recent congress of Rome, eftectiv< October 1, 1907, provides that postage or letters originating in countries which havt not the metric system shall be 5 cents foi the first ounce and 3 cents for each additional minrp This will be at the rate ol 2 cents per halt ounce on letter packer weighing: as much as two ounces. The effect of the recent order will no doubt be to bring the people of New Zealand Into closer business relations with the merchants and manufacturer* of the United States.
