NEW HAVEN MORXIKQ JOURNAL AND COURIER, FRIDAY MAY 4 1907
TEACHER CLEARS CLODDED POINTS Mr. Hackett Denies State ment That Teachers In tend Strike. , NO $300 INCREASES. Schedule Presented Does Not Make Such a Provision. To the Editor of The Journal and Courier, Sir: , The following statement appeared in a Register editorial last evening: "There has been more or less newspaper agita. tlon of the matter, some of it fair, some of it tending to cloud the facts of the case." ' Every newspaper to my knowledge has been fair in its statements with the exception of one, the Register. Re cently on one page appeared the state ment that the committee on schools would not publish anything about the teachers' petition until the matter was presented to the full board for action. On another page of the same issue was the statement that the teachers' schedule provided for anual increases of $300. In the first place the only parties who had any knowledge of our detail ed schedule was the superintendent and the committee on schools of which the owner of the Register is a mem ber. So the statement that nothing would be published was contradicted by men tioning annual Increases. Secondly, the schedule does not pro vide for annual increases of $300 and a letter addressed to the editor of the Register asking to have the statement corrected was not published as a let ter but statements taken from the let ter were incorporated In a story on the subject of the Teachers' League. Again for the past two evenings statements appeared in the Register to the effect that , teachers were In tending to strike unless their schedule was adopted by the board. Of course the statement was and is false. Last week I requested a repre sentative of the Register, before pub lishing any rumor about the teachers, to find out from me If It was official or not. This latest misrepresentation in "view of. my request certainly "tends to cloud the facts in the case." . ... ..... . . WVH. HACKETT, President of Teachers' League. WHITE CITY TOWER. More Brilliant Than EverTested for ,s Opening To-morrow, Bhot from a tower of brilliant light, A million rays dispel the night. Manager Speck.'ofl the White City, Is justly proud of the great electric tower at the White City this season. Last right It was turned on for the first time as a test, its Increased brilliancy over previous years being at once ap parent. Five hundred extra lights have been added at the dome, giving it the appearance of a gigantic sunburst, while the entire tower has received a heavy coat of white enamel paint, making it a dazzling spectacle as it re fracts the golden rays of the sun. In beauty It may be now truthfully said to rival any In the country, although slightly smaller than those at Dream land and Luna Park at Coney Island. To-morrow night, when the gorgeous city of amusement Is seen beneath the towering shaft of electric light, the people can judge for themselves. Manager Speck yesterday decided to start at once giving away coupons for the silver presents which are to be presented free each week to some lucky Individuals. Do not forget to secure them. They will be distributed at the gate. The first concerts of the season by the Second Regiment band, under the leadership of Frank Fichtl, will be giv en to-morrow afternoon and evening, and do not forget the roller skating rink with Its improved floor and new skates and the same courteous manage ment as last year. The Incessant rush to get all the new attractions in readiness will go on to the last moment, and on those that are not quite ready forces will continue to work regardless of the pleasure-seeking crowds and the busy and merry Whirl of the many other amusements. FIRE SCARE ON TEUTONIC. One of the Stnte Cnlilna Dnmnged While Ship Wan nt Sen, New York, May 23. There was a Are scare among the passengers of the White Star line steamship Teutonic, which arrived here to-day. The inci dent occurred while the vessel was oft the Banks last Tuesday. While ringing the dinner gong, a steward discovered smoke coming from a suite of rooms on the port side. The chief steward was quickly notified and he rang the alarm which calls the ship's Are brigade into action. It was found that one of the state cabins, in cludins three rooms, was filled with smcke. and that a lively little blaze was !n progress. It took but a few minutes for the fire brigade to man the hose and get the pumps at work. Owing to the fact that the flames were for the most part inside the woodwork, it took three-quarters of an hour to subdue them. The dam age amounted to $2,000. Captain Harry Smith was in charge of the fire fighters, and the stewards devoted themselves to assuring the pas sengers that there was no danger. There was, however, a srod deal of excitement until the captain announced that the flames were extinguished. The fire, in all probability, resulted from th defective insulation of electric wires. The damaged cabin was unoccupied. BROWNSVILLE MAYOR'S STORY. Testimony Before Senate Committee To-dnjr Abont the Shooting Affray. Washington, May 23. "Mayor Fred erick J. Crombe of Brownsville, Tex., was on the stand to-day before the senate committee on military affairs. In the investigation of the affray which resulted In the discharge of negro soldiers garrisoned at Fort Brown. He narrated the incidents connected with the shooting, and told of the Investi gation by citizens to determine who did it. Most of the circumstances con nected with the citizens' inquiry have been made public, , but the mayor in terested the committee in his story of the excitement following the shooting. He said that hundreds of people ap peared in the streets fully armed, and determined to make an attack upon the garrison, but that he addressed the crowd and, by calling prominent citizens to his aid, managed to dis perse the people to their homes. He denied making a remark accredit ed, to him by a white soldier named Voschel, connected with the alleged as sault by a negro soldier upon the wife of a citizen named Evans. This re mark was said to have been made the day prior to the shooting in a con versation with Major Penrose at the post. Voschel said he overheard the mayor tell Major Penrose that unless a negro soldier Was arrested before eleven o'clock that night every enlist ed man seen In the town would be shot. Mayor Combe, hot only denied making such a remark, but said he could pro duce a letter from Major Penrose deny ing that such a re.mark had been made. A number of the shells, clips, and other exhibits used in the investiga tions were found on! the streets by Mayor Crombe, and he told the circum stances connected with the finding. GEN.

The missing jewel case belonging to Charles Bigelow, of Duncan hall, which was In the suit case taken to Cam bridge last Saturday and which was not returned with the suit case Wed nesday, came home again yesterday, and Its contents, valued at $1,200, are again In Mr. Bigelow'g possession. The Jewel case was delivered at Dun can hall- by the Adams Express com pany, addressed to Mr. Bigelow, but with no word of explanation. Both the detectives and the owner are mysti fied. While It was at first supposed that the suit case was taken away with the track team's baggage by mistake, the detectives are inclined to think that some trailer of the team who had care of the baggage took it deliberately and, after taking out the jewel case, allow ed It to go to Cambridge with the rest of the suit cases, as though it had bjen CHANCE IN TUITION. ALUMNI FAVOR RAISE May Recommend Increase for Academic Students This June. It has been seml-officially announced that the executive committee of the Yale alumni advisory board, upon rec ommendation from the faculty of the academic department, will report to the board at commencement In favor of an increase of $13 to the tuition charge to each student of the college. If the cor poration adopts the recommendation of the alumni In the event of the accept ance of the executive committee's re port, the tuition of each academic stu dent will be $168, equal to the charge at Sheffield scientific school. The in crease, .with, the , present number o students would net the college about $17,50.1. . . . The principal reasons advanced for and against the project by the Alumni Weekly are. In favor: 1. The general increase of cost of liv in, and of college administration dur ing the last few years and since tui tion was last raised, that increased cost, at a low estimate, being 25 per cent. It The increased earning power of the average parent of the student. Earn ing power and opportunity of the stu dent are also somewhat greater. 3. Tuition charges do not now pay the cost of instruction and other edu cational expenses in the academic de partment. 4. There is a specific need for "free" revenue for salaries for an increased number of instructors; and revenue from endowment funds should, in gen eral, be used for somewhat different lines of advance.- 5. The failure of past tuition increases to affect visibly, the number of stu dents. On the negative side: 1. Yale Intrinsic character as a democratic institution under moral ob ligation to open her doors to the many, to keep her tuition fee at least as low as Harvard's and only to raise it to meet, emergency. - 2. The danger that raised tuition would strike at her most valued "self help" and "middle class" groups. 3. Greater earning power of parents and student has been offset by the bur-, den of larger cost of living for .both, with relative cost especially heavy on thi professional and salaried parents who send their sons to Yale. 4. Endowment funds in many eases were intended by the givers to apply directly to instruction, Including sala ries. 5. The diminished length of the col lege year and of Instruction and the In come 'released to the college treasury by the Carnegie pensions. 6. Yale turned down the proposed in crease of tuition some three years ajo when she was In financial stress. Why should she raise the tuition charge now at a period of decided financial better ment? FORMER FARM if AND ACCUSED. Guilford Fnrme Missed Watch and Money. John J. McCarMiy, a young man about nineteen years of age. a farm hand, was arrested last evening by De tective Dunlap on a charge of theft. McCarthy formerly worked as a farm hand for a Mr. Wilcox, a farmer of the town of Guilford. McCarthy on April 25 last resolved to depart the Wilcox farm and did so without bul letining his employer.

De tective Dunlap journeyed thither and made the arrest. McCarthy denies the theft of the articles. 1 IHP the best part of the best delivered to you in dust there, and the nutriment, Dont fortrrt your Coupons for the children's sake. 1m HWBUri SUBSTITUTE LIGHTS FOR THE FGUSTHFIBEWQRKS Committee Proposes to II - luminate Green During July. HEARING LAST NIGHT Merger of Fourth Features With Illumination for Eagles' Field Day. Two separate and distinct special committees were appointed by the board of aldermen to consider, one the petition of the local acrle, Fraternal Order of Eagles, for a city illumination of the green similar- to that arranged for the Knights of Columbus conven tion last year, and the other the expen diture of the city's appropriation for the Fourth of July. But the committees were somehow made one when the pub lic appeared 'last evening for the public hearings, and Aldermen Homan, Loos, Diokerman, McKerness, Russell, Town shend, Nathahson 'and Curtiss were present in the aldermanic chamber. The committees decided to merge inter ests and consider a proposition to elim inate the customary fourth of July fire works display of the city and to illum inate the central green for the Fourth, and keep the. illumination, through the rest of the month until after the Eagles' field day, July 22. It is pro posed to have band concerts one night a week by the city and to conclude with the two concerts arranged for by the Eagles on July 20 and 22. , Martin J. Gray, of the Eagles' exec utive committee, opened the campaign for the illumination. He stated that the event marked the fifth anniversary of Eagledom in the state and the com mittee was doing all. in its power to make the affair a great success. Ko canvass Is being or will be made of the local merchants for support. He set tho figures of the visitors expected that day at about 60,000. Sergeant of Police Doherty, who is to be marshal of the Essies' parade told of the feature of the day. He stated that he expected 8,000 men in line and he thought it. would be tho finest parade New Haven had ever wit nessed. The out of (own delegations will all appear In unique uniforms add ing to the splernlor of the procession. William C. Dickinson appeared - to protest against spending the entire ap propriation of the city for the Fourth on fireworks. Asked if .he was in favor of fireworks he repllf ft that he was only when other things '-had been arranged for and other money, was left. He sug gested a public meeting' on the green, wlth-readlng of the constitution and addresses. He' sugested that about $1,50 out of the $500 be expended for py rotechnics. Asked if he would avor an Illumina tion with band concerts, ,he said: "Band concerts are a failure. They usually consist of a contest -between a large policeman with : small mobility and small boys with large ability to hurdle over people who desire to hear the mu sic." . ' Dr. Frank Wright appeared in favor of the illumination. ' He said he was not an Easie but was In favor of en couraging convention 6f this character and he hoped the lioard would grant the requests. He said he never did be lieve In fireworks for tho city. T. W. Kelllher of Providence, Wil liam J. Corbin, james J. Grady and P. J. Conlon of this city, addressed the committee in favor of the proposition. William Costello scorSd the city for lack of enterprise in affairs of this kind. "New Haven,'1'.' he said,. "Is a thousand years . behind the times. It will never get out of the rut if It doesn't wake up sometime. Other cl tleS don't haggle over $1,000 for such events. They regard the expenditure as a business proposition. New Ha ven should make this appropriation to show that it has waked up for once. I consider $1,000 a miserable sum for a City of this size to appropriate for such an event." The opinions of several of tho speak ers were asked by the committe on the plan ellmenating the fireworks. Most of them thought that the city could handle both propects, but that if not r $ksh I F" ,005$ M tJUIIlVVimVllVV V XUWAWJL guuuuvwu AvJ UVik b Ul into a tasty, nutritious food.

The committee considered the matter in executive ses sion but reached no conclusion. It was decided to ask the board of finance in regard to how much money would be available and to report again later to consider the report to be made to the board of aldermen. The committee will consider further the project of eliminating the fireworks and substituting the illumination and band concerts. - DRAY IGNORED IN T CHOICES (Continued from Page One.) .

Helsingfore, Finland, May 23. The first single chamber diet of Finland, organized under the new constitution, to-day elected presiding officers and then adjourned to await the emperor's confirmation of the elections. The coalition of Socialists and Young Finns, as anticipated, had complete control of the elections, polling 134 out of 200 votes and voluntarily conceding the third office filled to the Old Finns. Not one of the nineteen women "deputies was a candidate for office though some of them received scattering votes. Judge Svinhufvud, a member of the Young Finn party, who was degraded from the bench and driven into exile under the regime of the late Governor General Bobrikoff, was elected presi dent. ' : Doctor af TJrsin, Socialist, and Baron Palzen, Old -Finn, were chosen vice presidents. All the officers elected are members of the ancient Swedish nohility which formerly ruled Finland. ; Auf Ursin, though a "Socialist leader is a descen dant of one of the most distinguished old families, the prefiv "af". correspond ing with the French "de." In harmory , with the simple char acter of -the Finnish people the proceed ings to-day were of the plainest char acter. Not a uniform was seen in the hall and no government officials par ticipated in the session which, was call ed to order by the oldest deputy, Isaat Holkka, an aged peasant of Lapland. The officers, when elected, stepped from the hall beneath a great bronze statue of the lion of Finland and promised to defend the rights of the emperor, and grand duke, the diet and the Finnish people, in accordance with the con stitution. The other members of the diet were not required to take the oath or make an affirmation of fidelity to the crown. The bl-ingual character of the diet was evident throughout. The speeches were delivered In differently in Finnish cr Swedish but the president of the diet, though habitually 'Finnish, needs to know both languages In order to properly submit motions to the house. In accordance with tho Finnish Idea there was no applause. ' . The Socialists have decided to ab set themselves from the formal open ing of the diet Saturday so as to avoid recognizing ttfe emperor and the gov ernor general. Will Hold Executive Session.
