CASE UNDER CONSIDERATION
1 ^
Prof. Evermann the Champion of a
Demoted Teacher.
MR. CHANCELLOR'S POSITION
Believes Miss Lucy Moten to Bet Incompetent
for Prlncipalship.
Humors Abroad.
All is not peace and quiet with the board
of education and the school officials these
days. Several matters are known to be
troubling the waters, not the least of which
is the case of Miss Lucy E. Moten, whose
demotion from the position of principal of
Normal School No. 2 was recommended by
Superintendent Chancellor at the last board
meeting. The interesting part about the
matter is that the superintendent's recommendation
did not come up for consideration,
the committee on teachers and janitors
having either "lost" it or failed to report
upon it.
The situation that now presents itself as
a result of these happenings is understood
to be c le of strong antagonism between
Dr. Chancellor and Prof. Barton W. Evermann
of the board, who Is understood to be
opposing the superintendent in the Moten
case and to have with him in the fight John
F. Cook and Dr. A. T. Atwood of the board.
Miss Moten has strong supporters and
nntownnicta nn tho hoard anil off of
Olllfllg aiiiaguiiiuvo V/|? ??V> ? ??? ??
it. and it is stated that the opponents Uav?
locked horns over the affa::.
The superintendent's reason for desiring
to remove Aliss Moten from the principalship
is that he belie-es her :o be incompetent
on account of deafness. Her position,
he points out. is that of a teacher as well
as an executive officer and demands that
she have acute hearing. In an interview
with a otar reporter this morning he said
this was his only reason for making tha
recommendation.
Discovery Made.
After the board meeting last Wednesday,
when Prof. Evermann and the other supporters
of Miss Moten were congratulating
themselves on having defeated the purpose
of Dr. Chancellor, they were surprised to
discover that the name "L. E. Moten" appeared
on the list of salary changes which
had been approved en ma.sSe by the board,
and that she was reduced by their action
from W.(XW) to tl.CoO, which was virtually
what the superintendent had recommended
in his special communication on the subject?the
one that was lost. Was this action
binding? Some held that it was, but
Prof. Evermann hald that it was not.
The attitude of the superintendent on thla
important question was unknown to the
public until this morning, when he stated
to a reporter that, of course, the recommendation
for reduction in salary contained
in tho s'pnoral list xiras rontincrpnt unnn thA
recommendation that was not acted upon,
and was therefore to be considered as not
approved. He did not say, however, that
he intended to drop the matter.
Persons who are watching the school
situation closely are interested in these recent
developments because they reveal, It
is said, wide disagreements between the
board of ducation, or a considerable portion
of it, and the superintendent, and especially
between the superintehdent and
Prof. Evermann, who at first was regarded
' as his strongest advocate.
Rumors Afloat.
As the school year nears a close all sorts
oi rumors 01 cnangea are in ine air. ur.
Chancellor Is known to have antagonists
on the board who are said to be anxious
to see him leave. On the other hand, it la
stated that Assistant Superintendent Percy
M. Hughes, who was a candidate for the
superintendency last summer, is quietly
working in his own behalf and would like
to see Dr. Chancellor go in order that he
might have another chance for the place.
Mr. Hughes has been very active throughout
the present school year In school politics,
and, it Is said, has not been acting
always In harmony with the superintendent.
So persistent have the rumors about Mr.
Hughes in his relation to the superintendent
become that the matter is being much
talked about at the Franklin building. A
Star reporter asked Dr. Chancellor this
morning if he had heard anything of the
kind and he replied that he had not. When
asnea wnt'uiei lie nau uetu receiving support
from Mr. Hughes and regarded him as
a valuable assistant, he replied:
"X would rather not answer that question.
You may infer What you like."
Taken altogether, the condition of school
affairs at this juncture is regarded as so
critical that something exciting may happen
at any time.

MICE BROKE UP THE MEETING.
Mean Trick of the Anti-Suffragists in
London Campaign.
Special Cablegram to The Star.
LONDON, June 3.?It is interesting to
note that the antl-suffraglsts have found
a new argument why women should not
vote and why they should not mix In matters
political and why they should not
mingle with the crowds. The argument,
which appears to be practical rather than
theoretical. Is apparently one of the outgrowths
of the recent Wimbledon campaign.
According to all accounts there crept
by some means Into Worple Hall, where
Bertrand Russell, the suffragist candidate
recently defeated for Wimbledon, was
holding his first meeting, several mice. Of
course, the suffragists are everywhere saying
that it was a "shame," and that if the
police authorities cannot protect under
those circumstances nothing remains of
the much-boasted freedom of speech and
liberty of meeting so much talked of by
various speakers and candidates. They
also declare that If politics has been reduced
to so low a level that It is necessary
to win by a foul trick. It Is about
time for the Introduction of the refining
influences of womenkind.
The males who are opposed to the "suffragettes"
In reply declare that politics is
a practical matter, and that little thiags
such as the introduction of mice cannot be
allowed to Interfere with the destinies of
the nation. On the other hand, the women
interested in the campaign of Bertrand
Russell (suffragist) do not hesitate to Inquire
what the men would have done if
some one had Introduced adders and rattlesnakes
Into a unionist mass meeting. The
answers to all of these arguments pro and
con would appear to be that Mr. Henry
Chaplin, the unionist candidate, was
elected by a tremendous majority over the
surrragist canaiaaie.
The introduction of mice into the campaign
and a mass meeting where were
gathered hundreds of women, who combine
Imperial politics with feminine fancies,
however had its humorous as well
as Its serious side. For the women present,
it appeared, could face mere blustering,
tyrannical man. They fled, however,
in undisguised terror from the equally affrightened
rodents. When the cry of
"mice" ran through Worple Hall there
was instantly a shuffle of petticoats and a
rush for the benches. Mere men roared
with delight.
So the meeting was broken up amid
boisterous laughter and cheers first for
mice and men, then cheers for mic<# and
women. None of the speakers couM be
heard In the din, though the Interruptions
were good-natured. The candidate, "our
dear Mr. Russell," was the object of many

about the time of the breaking up of the
meeting. "Go home and get your petticoats
on," shouted one merry-faced youth.
The woman speakers had an equally '
squally time of it. As successive speak- '
ers arose each was greeted with the shout:
"Hello, hello, hello, a different girl again."
"Is it just that woman should have {
votes?" asked a sweet-faced woman in an
anxious voice.
Unwittingly she provoked a storm. It
broke in cries of "Yes!" and "No!" "The
'noes' have it!" screamed a boyish voice.

O'GORMAN PLEASED PRELATES.
Vatican Officials Delighted With His
Lecture on Church.
Special Cablegram to The Star.
KUMf., June ? 1 ne itrciure 01 me m.
Rev. I?r. O'tiorman. bishop of Sioux Falls,
on "The Growth of the Catholic Church in
America" continues the talk in clerical circles.
It is everywhere acknowledged that
it is years since a lecture so elucidating in 1
many respects has been delivered here. It
wus a clear, well-defined picture of the
growth of the Catholic Church in America
from the time of the landing of Columbus,
when its positive and ascertainable history
begins, down to the present day. The first
preachers or the raltn in ine "new woria
were Spanish Franciscans; at a later period
came French Jesuits; then followed Lord
Baltimore, with his English Catholics, and
in the first half of the nineteenth century
the Irish, probably to the number of four
millions, poured into the country. Shortly
after the middle of the century the German
emigration acquired strength, and of
this race that settled in the United States one-third
was Catholic.
The bishop passed lightly over the character
and the coming of the Puritans, calling
attention, however, to the fact that
while they left England in the early part
of the seventeenth century in search of religious
liberty themselves, nevertheless they
at <>nee denied all-religious liberty to their
neighbors In the new land. As an able
writer had said of them: "They fell upon
j their knees and then they fell upon the
auorigines.
Bishop O'Gorman said that later years
opened the way to the immigration of the
Slavs, bringing their customs and character
with them; and in ailll more recent

of half a million a year, bringing with
them, among other things, their esthetlclsm.
What the autcome of all this strange
mixture and fusion of different races
may present In the future?say one or two
hundred years?It was not easy to guess.
Bishop O'Gorman, considering the tendency
of the modern American mind toward religion,
the want of it that Is felt, and seriously
felt, and the special fitness of the
^mnonc *jnurcn to sausry adequately tnai
want. Inclines to the belief that the future
religion of the United States will be the
Catholic religion. There are other elements
at work, he says, tending to strengthen him
In this belief, and one of these Is the fact
that the American people and the American
government appear to grow more and more
liberal in dealing with Catholics.
On? of the things which made the4address
of the bishop so interesting and important
was the fact that only the day previous
he was received In special audience

MOLESTED KING EDWARD.
Interesting Trial of Couple for Alleged
Impertinence.
Special Cablegram to The Star.
VIENNA, June 3?An interesting trial
has just occurred here of a married couple
who were accused of 'molesting King Edward
during his visit last year to Marlenbad.
A Vienna police commissioner, who
was specially appointed to look after the
king's safety and prevent his being annoyed
by Impertinent curiosity, remarked
that a visitor accompanied by a woman
stared unceremoniously at his majesty, who
was seated on a bench under the colonnades.
The commissioner politely requested the
couple to move on, and as they refused to
leave the spot he asked a Marlcnbad policeman
to take the address and the nationality
of the stranger. The latter angrily declared
that the commissioner had no right to order
him to leave the colonnades and said
that th(* npvt time thic nnrnrro^ ho
give htm a box on tihe ear.
For this threat the visitor was sentenced
by the Marienbad magistrates to a fine of
200 kronen or five days' imprisonment for
insulting the police authorities. He made
no appeal against the sentence, but when
the matter came to the knowledge of the
general procurator in Vienna he raised an
objection to the sentence, as the Insulted
police official had not been present at the
time the threat was uttered. The upsihot
of the entire matter was that in Vienna the
sentence was annulled and the man was
acquitted.
A.FTEB BOTHA WITH BIG STICK.
Object of Sharp Criticism From Lead
ing German ^ew-jpipers.
Special Cablegram to The Star.
BERLIN, June 3.?The German papers
are making the bitterest kind of attacks
upon Gen. Botha, claiming that Gen.
Cronje, who appeared as an exhibitor at
"The Boer War" on Coney Island, a spectacular
production In the United States,
was a gentleman and 11 scholar when coinpared
with the new premier, who ha.* been
visiting London and who has been made
the "lion of the season."

lowing himself to "he made the titfraetlon

Mr. Kruger In retiring to Kttropn with
money enough to live the cushioned llfo of
a pensioned held marshal.
The Zeitung says: "It certainly vlolites

synonymous with a free Transvaal should
permit himself to bo well paid by his new

mainly for the purpose of exhibiting symbolically

Special Cablegram to The Star.
LONDON, June 3.-A remarkable forecast
as to the motive power of the future
has just been made by Sir Hugh Hell, the
new president of the Iron and Steel Institute,

the Atlantic hy wireless telegraph.

It was 110 more incredible than what had
happened since 18<>7. The world moved on

Sir Hugh Bell said that It was abso
