VOTE A UNANIMOUS 01 After Public Hearing of Two Hours Members Act With out Discussion. DLLMAN SUPPORTS PLAN Declares Many Taxpayers Say It is Fair and Should Satisfy Teachers. After a public hearing of over two hours' duration held last night in the board room of the board of education that body unanimously voted to adopt the proposed new schedule as reported by the '. school committee last Friday evening. " There was no dissenting voice in the vote, and the matter, so far as the board of education is concerned, is considered closed. The new schedule, it was voted, is to go into effect Jan uary 1, 1908, .under any circumstances, and before that time if the board of finance sees a way to make it possible, No discussion took place among the members of the board after the public hearing regarding the adoption of the schedule reported by the committee, all being In its favor. Two emendations were made in the schedule, the follow' )ng being added:. "Principals' assist ants will be appointed in all twelve- room buildings," and "college gradu ates, without teaching experience, ap pointed in the; grades $100 for first year of service, J500 second year, tnere' 'after an increase of $50 each year until maximum is reached." The list of ' teachers as announced Friday night was accepted and the ap pointments made. ' .' - . : Three increases were made in the salaries previously announced, as fol lows: Miss Mary F. O'Brien, ungraded Fair street school, $850 to $900; Henry W. Loomis, Dlxwell avenue school un , graded, $850 to $900, and Miss Alice G. Ford, Whiting street school, $700 to $725. An attempt was made by Colonel TJllman to have the salary of Dr. Dia mond, supervising principal of the Wooster district, increased $100 to place him on a par with the lowest paid to other supervising principals, but the board was opposed to the addition: and Colonel Ullman withdrew the Trop- osition. Dr. Diamond gets an increase of $100 this year, and as this Is the terms of the contract made with him when he came here, the board was un willing to increase it even to bring him tip to the lowest paid in other districts, When the meeting of the board was called to order, with every member in his place, every accessible position in the -board room was occupied and a large delegation of citizens interested .in the salary question filled the corri dors outside, unable to get in. There were no teachers in the throng, all rig orously absenting themselves and leav ing the matter in the hands of citizens end taxpayers. Joseph Reilly, representing the Trades Council, opened the arguments. He spoke very briefly, simply placing himself and his organization on record as favoring the schedule presented by the teachers as a fair one, and the one that should be adopted. Attorney Harry W. Asher made the first lengthy plea of the evening, get ting in before the board placed a five minute limit on the talkers. In sub stance he said: "I consider that in this matter of teachers' salaries the board of education has for many years past Ibeen derelict in its duty. I think that the teachers of New Haven, educated ladles and gentlemen, know as well, and, I venture to say, better, than you what they need; and I say this with all credit to your own good Judgment. They have met and planned a sched ule which is Just, fair and reasonable, and I think that the citizens of New Haven feel that; their petition is a Just one and will not be against granting it. After all this labor, after all this wor ry on their part, I cannot see why it has not been granted in fulL "The fact that you have granted in part what they asked makes me feel that you admit that their petition was a least partly Just, and if you go that far, why not go a step further and grant it in toto? If you feel that it is because the taxpayers will object, that Is no concern of yours. Neither is the attitude of the board of finance. So far as that body is concerned, it is for you to put it up to them. "The citizens cannot understand why you have not granted the full request. Is it that ou fear that it would be an acknowledgment that you were partly R-rong? I don't think any people would blame you if you took that action. "Unless you grant this petition in toto you will have this same trouble over again until you do." Walter Leigh brought up the point of failure to provide a schedule for the high school, which he thought should be given one as well as the grammar jfcCentinued on Eighth.

Here they delayed for a moment to prove that Orchard twice wrote and once te lephoned to Bill Easterly at Silver Cily to urge him, to come and Join in th crime, and the direct implication was that Orchard was endeavoring to in veigle another federation man into the crime which would bring discredit and dishonor to the organization. Then the witness was carried over his long Journey into North Idaho, and his crimes there, including plot (to kidnap and hold for ransom, Paulson's child were emphasized.
