TEETENIMMIWOI Now Already Made Up but the Details Are Yet to Be Worked Out. BASIS NOT 'ANNOUNCED YET Special Meeting June7 When the Schedule Will be An " nounced in Full. That the report of the committee on schools on the Increase in teachers' salaries will be a favorable one was formally made a matter of record at ithe meeting of the board of education last evening. The news that the In crease would be granted was embod ied in a report made to the board at the meeting and that report was drawn up at a somewhat lengthy session of the committee before the board meet ing was called. No definite word on the increase beyond the 'fact that there would be one was contained in the re port by saying that the committee is making a thorough investigation in the process of making up the new schedule and would not be able to make its re port until about June 7. The report in full follows: Keport of the Committee on Schools, May 24, 1D0T. The committee reports that owing to the fact that the 1st of Normal school graduates, from which about twenty appointments will this year be made, 'has not been "received and also to the tact , that '.the work of several local candidates for positions in the New Haven schools has hot yet been in spected, 'the annual' list of appoint ments is not ready to be submitted to the board. ; The committee recom mends that a special meeting of the board be held not later than June 7, at which this annual list of appoint ments may be submitted. At that time the committee will also present its re port on teachers' salaries.. Relative to this report the committee wishes to state that it has endeavored to make a thorough investigation of the salary situation in a fair spirit and to formulate such a salary schedule as will meet present conditions. The committee was unanimous , from the start in its belief that an increase in salaries should be granted. The lnves tigation made necessary, however, the study of numerous details and has made impossible an earlier report. JAMES S. WHEE'LEIR, JOHN D. JACKSON, JAMES T. MORAN, Committee on Schools. Mr. Moran when interviewed later stated that the committee had made up a tentative framework of the schedule but still had the details to Jill in. ' When asked If the increase would be on the basis of an entirely new arrangement or a general percen tage Increase on salaries now received, he replied that he felt he could not answer that question without giving away 'too much at present. The com mittee, he said, would probably recom mend some date for the new schedule to go into operation but that date would be subject to the action of the full board and also of the board of finance. The board took up the recommenda tion that a special meeting be called for a date not later than June 7. Sen ator Eli Whitney, chairman of the board, announced that he would have to leave for Jamestown on June 3 and could not be here for that date. A full meeting of the board was desired. It was finally voted that a special meeting- be called for June 7th to make the appointment of teachers for the year which could not be made last night because the list of standings at the Normal school was not ready. At this meeting i the schedule of salaries will be reported. Another meeting is set for June 12, when final action on the schedule will be taken by the board The next regular meeting will fall on June 14, but the date was moved up as Frederick Belts announced that he could not be present on that date. Colonel Ullman began an inquiry in to the system used in selecting the l;new teachers for the schools. Superin tendent Beede explained the custom adopted. The list of the students at the Normal school he said, is furnished and a number of New Haven girls ap proximately twenty from the first half of the list are chosen. After going about half way down the list, Mr. Beede said, there was a big risk. So those who were in the second half weii. informed that they must qualify by teaching elsewhere first. Then those who applied to teach in this city are visited and their work noted and if approved they are appointed. In ad dition to this a few out of town teachers are secured. "The first duty of the board," he declared, "is to pro vide efficient school teachers not to fur nish positions to persons seeking them." Mr. Jackson stated that instead of (Continued on Eighth Faje.) REDUCE PULLMAN RATE Movement to This End Before Inter state Commission. Washington, May 24. A definite ef fort was begun to-day before the inter state commerce commission to secure to the public a reduction in the rate of fare charged by the Pullman company for Its sleeping car accommodations. This Is the first time In the history of the commission that a proceeding has been brought against the Pullman com pany, and it promises to be an action of more than ordinary interest and im portance. Three complaints Were filed against the Pullman company and various northwestern railroad lines, which are made co-defendants, by George S. Lof tus, a business man of St. Paul, Minn., who asks not only that the rates be materially reduced, but that the com pany be allowed to charge only half as much for an upper berth as for a lower berth.

GOULDS ARE SUMMONED Must Tell About Police Of ficer's Connection With Case. New York, May 24. Captain William McLaughlin, admittedly one of the most brilliant officers that the New York police department has ever had, and whose thirty-nine years of service the city have been crowded with stlrrinsr events, retired from the force at midnight to-night. During the day the former Inspector made application for retirement on half pav, which will be $2,600 a year and as he has served his twenty-five years and no charges against him are pending, Commissioner Bingham has no alternative but to grant the application. The retirement, too, will remove Mc Laughlin as a figure In the investiga tion of the alleged Gould conspiracy. As the application for retirement fore stalled any possible charges, McLaugh lin may be said to be out of the case. McLaughlin is sixty years old. :" He had been a member of the police force since November 26, 1868, and in 1880 was assigned to duty in the detective bu reau at headquarters and made a ser geant. He began then a career of ex citing captures and numerous convic tions. It was not long before he was made captain for breaking up the famous Red Hook gang, a band of des perate river thieves. In 1890 he, was ap pointed an Inspector. In 1895 he was convicted of extortion on evidence pro duce'd against him at the Lexow Inves tigation, spent several days in the Tombs under sentence, but got a new trial from the court of appeals, was ac quitted and reinstated. He was put at the head of the detective bureau by Commissioner McAdoo. When the Bingham bills were passed last iVionth he was reduced to the rank of captain .and sent to the Westches ter district. Captain McLaughlin is said to have amassed a fortune of nearly a million dollars in real estate dealings. W hile McLaughlin was preparing his application for retirement to-day, Dep uty Commissioner Hanson was continu ing his inquiry at police headquarters, and it was learned that both .Howard Could, and his wife had been served with subpoenas to appear before him and tell what they knew about the participation of Peabody and McLaugh lin in Gould's search for divorce evi dence. Edward Sholes, the former circus rider who is credited with having start ed the report that Mrs. Howard Gould (Continued on Eighth Page.) FINDING TO-DAY.

Three Thousand Machinists Quit on Re ceiving: Order, Binghamton. N. Y., May 24. Follow ing a .general order of James O'Connell of the International Association of Ma. chlnists, the 190 machinists employed in the Erie shops at Susquehanna went out on a strike at 2 o'clock this morn ing. It is understood that all of the machinists in all of the Erie shors be tween New, York and Chicago, about 3, 000 men, are affected by the order. The strike was ordered because the company has refused to grant the re quest of the machinists to be put back on time work from the piece system. At the time the piece system was adopted, about 400 machinists were em ployed in the Susctuehanna shops, but they have been gradually dropping off until onlv 190 were left. Advices from Cleveland, Scranton, Pa., Huntington. Ind., Jersey City, and other places show that the order was abeyed almost to a man. Tornado of Small Proportions. Snyder, Okla., May 24.

A TRANSFER DECISION New York Court Finds Them Only Good for Ride In Same Dlreetlon, New York, May 24. By a divided vote the appellate division of the New York supreme court to-day handed down an Important decision, upholding the right of a street railway company to refuse to honor trnnsfers except when pre sented for a continuous trip in the same general direction in which the passen ger started. The suit was brought against the New York City Railway company by Peter C. Kelly. The defendant boarded a southbound car on Third avenue, transferred to Chambers street, and took a northbound car on Greenwich street. His transfer was refused, and he brought suit in the supreme court to test the company's right. This decision, which confirms the decision of the lower court, consid ers broadly the question as to whether tha action of the defendant company is reasonable and consistent with the terms of the state statutes. "Under the scheme of transfers pro vided for by the department," says the opinion, "a person desiring to make a continuous trip is provided an entirely practical and efficient means of reach ing any part of the city for a single fare." .

MORE CORRUPTION INDICTMENTS MADE Grand Jury Grinds Out a Fresh Lot Against 'Frisco Men. . ' MAYOR SCHMITZ HIT Nearly a Million in Bail is Required to be Fur nished. San Francisco, May 24. The grand jury this evening returned bribery In dictments against the following: President Patrick ' Calhoun, of the United Railroads, fourteen indictments; Thornwall Mullaly, assistant to Cal houn, fourteen; Attorneys Tirey I Lord and W. M. Abbott, of the legal department of the United Railroads, fourteen each; Mayor Eugene E. Schmltz, sixteen; Abraham Ruef, four teen; President Louis Glass, of the Pa cific States Telephone and Telegraph company, two; Theodore V. Halsey, formerly an agent of that corporation, one. Ruef, Schmltz, Calhoun, Mullaly, Ford and Abbott are charged with bribery in connection with the fixing of the gas company's rates and with receiving $50,000 in the United Rail roads franchise deal. The indictments against ' Glass are additional to the eleven Indictments already returned against him on the charge of bribing supervisors to refuse a competitive telephone franchise. The indictment against Halsey is for the same offense. Superior Judge Coffey fixed bail In the sum of $10,000 on each of the charges and gave the accused until to morrow noon to furnish bonds. The statement was made unofficially that ' all but $140,000 of the entire amount of bonds, $890,000, 1 will be forthcoming to-morrow, i The United Railways alone will "have to put up for its president, the assistant to the pres ident and two attorneys $560,000 In se curities, or $280,000 In cash. Schmltz, In addition to $50,000 secur ity he has already given to procure his liberty pending trial of the five counts of extortion brought against him and Ruef jointly, will have to put up $160, 000 In bonds. Ruef will have to put up $140,000, but, Inasmuch as he now Is a prisoner without any immediate hope of release, it Is said that he will make no attempt to give bail. President Glass, of the telephone com pany, already has given bonds in the sum Of $90,000. He will have to put up $20,000 more to retain his liberty. The odore Halsey has put up $110,000 in bonds covering eleven indictments pre viously found against him. He will have to put up $10,000 additional to morrow. When Foreman Oliver, of the grand jury, filed the Indictments in court he stated that these "were only a partial report from the grand jury." This Is taken to mean that more indictments are to follow. TRIAL ENDS SUDDENLY One Prisoner Hangs Himself and One Pleads Guilty to Murder,' New York, May 24. The trial of the three alleged "Black-Hand ' men on a charge of murder in the first degree was abruptly terminated In the su preme court In Brooklyn' to-day. Roc- co Panagiro, one of the men, took the case, so far as he was concerned, from the earthly tribunal by committing sui cide at the Raymond street jail by hanging.

Then, upon the recommendations of District Attorney Clark, Francesco Como, who had been on trial jointly with the other trio, was discharged from custody. The district attorney said there was no evidence to show that Como was directly concern ed in the murder. The three men were charged with having killed Galtano Costa, a butcher, who was found shot and stabbed to death in his shop last October.

According to all reports, the execu tive committee of the High School Alumni association had a warm session in the office of Attorney John L. Gil son, the secretary of the association, last night. " The principal matter taken up was the consolidation of the three high school papers. While the alumni real ly have no jurisdiction In the matter, it is understood that the undergradu ates are willing to abide by the decision of the graduates, i : The movement for the consolidation was started by C. A. Beck, president of the Boardman class of 190,4, argument advanced was that by a con centration of energy! the best result would be obtained.

At the head of , hospital. Wherever located, ,he said, it it is a man who has taken a course in the Yale Law school and who has been old enough to vote for several years, Mr. Beck favors the consolidation of the Radiator,, the Crescent and the Fo- ens. A thou en no oraciai statement given out, it Is understood that alumni of both societies are opposed to consol idation. They think that in a school of 1,700 there is enough literary ability to run three, at least two, papers. After considerable discussion, by a very close vote it was voted to table the whole matter until a future meet ing. It was then voted to increase the size of the executive committee till there should be upon it an alumnus of each class for the past twenty years. Such a committee, it seemed in the minds of the present executive board, could bStter consider the matter of consolidation. The matter is more important than it may appear to the public in general, In that, should the consolidation be ef fected, a new influence will be brought to bear on the societies. Whatever action is taken by the en larged executive committee, consisting of members of the classes for twenty years back, the board of education will be consulted before a report Is made to the alumni association. Another important matter that came up at last night's meeting was the mat ter of the increase in the teachers' sal aries. The executive committee finally decided to endorse the movement for an increase, in spite of the fact that some members did not think the ques tion was one to come within the prov ince of the alumni.

A ' NUMBER OF TILTS Contagious Diseases Hos pital Matter Again Wor rying Aldermen. The fight at the aldermanlc hearing on the four proposed sites for a, coni taglous disease hospital held last night centered about the Derby avenue site. The vehemence with which residents of that section rehearsed the unsultable ness of the place for a hospital showed also what a horrible place it must be to reside in. Andrew B.

He further said that the jarrlns had been so great as to cause the walls of the rooms of his house to fall so that he had to put In "new ones. A deaf member of his' house had asked several times if it was an earthauake that was shaking: the house. Charles S. Hamilton, another oppo nent of the Derby avenue site said that It would be an insult to property own ers to -place the hospital there." He, too, insisted that the noise was too great. He metaphorically stated that thj pandemonium reigning at the fall of. the angels from heaven, as told by. Mil ton, could not be compared with the; noise made by the Yale students dur ins their big games at the field. He diii not really see the need of the hos-' pital, especially when Its erection would mean the destruction of thousands of dollars' worth of property. He refer red to the difficulty .In choosing a site and concluded quite dramatically and poetically: "Amid such confusion who can tell, the road to heaven or hell or how we can be saved." Others appeared opposing the' site,' but there were no new arguments of fered. Many suggested Springfide as the proper site Mr. Hamilton stated that he would get 10,000 names to a pe- The.,tition for . the Sprlnsslde site. j. nomas x: rogarty saw that the only pbjectlon to the ' Springside site came from the doctors, but that they' would get used to Springside, If it should be chosen.
