A SPECIAL SESSION
BOABD OF EDUCATION TO BE
HELD THIS AFTEBNOON.
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.
Property Owners Object to Establishment
of Oarage.

of horns and the puffing of engines at
all hours ?f the day and night, and to the
odor of gasoline, more than a score of residents
and property owners, at a hearing
before the District Commissioners today
protested against the issuance of a permit
for the erection of a public garage in an
alley between 18th and 10th streets and Belmont
avenue and Columbia road. 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.

One of the chief pleasures afforded by
'The Vanderbllt Cup" is the privilege of

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

William Schoneberger, superintendent o

Washington Asylum Hospital a week ago
In his Inquiry Mr. Schoneberger had the as

ty-four hours after he reached the Wash

Nothing was known about the relatives o
the dead man and his body was removed t
the morgue. Letters fo>\nd in the pocket

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;

The superintendent of the morgue felt cer

and he said he disliked very much to pu

yesterday there seemed to be no other al

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

take place tomorrow from the R stree

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.

recent correspondence, strongly urged thii

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

The effect of the recent order will no

s asked for a report as to why the car was
i removed from the schedule.
t Acconilr.fr to the railway men. the car
was removed from the daily service be1
cause of the fact that there was not enough
goods belhg shipped from this city to

port upon the subject.
During the course of the meeting It vm
. stated the railway men were unanimous li*
a their desire to do anything they could in
the line of helping the Greater Washington
movement, but in the case under considi ra*
tlon they were not aware that they had

~ If Your Stomach is Lacking in Dis
gestive Poyver, Why Not Help
n the Stomach Do Its Work?
Especially When It Costs
? Nothing to Try?
* Not wltti drugs, but with a reinforcement ot d!?
gestive agents. such as are naturally at work In
the stomach? Scientific analysis shows that digestion
requires pepsin, nitrogenous ferments, and
the secretlou of hydrochloric add. When your
food falls to digest It Is proof positive that >oine
of these agents are lacking In your digestive apparatus.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets contain nothing but
^ these natural elements necessary to digestion and
r when placed at work in tlie weak stomach and
? small Intestines, supply what these organs need,
e They stimulate the gastric glands ami gradually
bring the digestive organs back to their normal
condition.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have been subjected
to critical chemical tests at home and abroad and
are found to contain nothing but natural digestives.
