Superintendent Cook's Case Be
fore the School Trustees.
Je-.e IjttiKon, of tlio Local Colored
Ciimmisnlon for Atlanta, Submit

Exhibit Which Was Not Sent Ap
polmmentM and I'romutloiu.
A determined effort is lielns made to oust
Supt. O. r. T Cook, of Hie colored schools
of Washington, from his imsltlon.
There are heteral factions among tnecnl
ored people here Jnd I'rof. Cook has roused
aulagoulsm in at least oneof them. Astate
nient regarding tlie lailure to send a col
ored school exhibit to the Atlanta Exposi
tion, -n hicti was read at the school board
meeting jestt-ruuy, shmvd ouu cause of dis
tal la fat lion.
In addition to hearing this paper the
tea books, and upprmed .1 number of up
poiutmenuand promotions.
Vice l'rcsidenl Wilson called the- meeting
to order i ilii Trustees Darlington, Cornish,
Mrs. 3 ton ell. Dr. Haze-it, and Dr. Bliadd
present, fctvret.iry Faick aud Supt. I'owell
were nLo In attendance.
The application o Mr. Harry Burrows for
leave of alcc-nee, after a statement by Mr.
Talck as to the condition upon which lcau
k granted, was referred to Dr. Witmcr.
TI.e communication from Jesse Lawsou.
President or the Atlanta Imposition Col
ored Commission tor WasIiintUm, regard
ing the failure to send a colored tchool ex
hibit to Atlanta, was read.
It stated In eirrct that Supt. Coot had
obtained pcrmi-ion irom the board to
prepjre an etbiblt, had'hclU a concert
v Itu the nfu of the school clitldreu to secure
funds to (iay the ccpensis of uniting the
eshiblt to Atlanta .ind maintiinlng it tliere,
and tl en had suit tlie papers specimens
of needle nork, wood work, drawing, etc.,
to a storage houe iiioltad oj- placing them
in the ii.iuils of tbc coinmissiou to place in
the exposition.
The commission had been ready to pay
any necessary cost of maintaining the
display at Atlanta, and a railroad bad
agreed to transport the goods to Atlanta
without cost. Supt. Cook bad, however,
refuseJ to allow the display to go unless
the commission nould make a guarantee
of $700 to return the display here unin
jured. The commission was ready to do this,
but asked what had become of the money
raised at the concert. Unpleasant rela
tions were produced anil the exhibit was
not made. Parents were complaining, ad
the board ought to investigate the matter.
Tru'lee Corni-h raid the concert was
given wholly by the tcliools and the At
lanta Communion hail nothing to do with
It. The jrhole matter had lK-eu placed
before the Commissioners by Mr. Lawson
and the Commissioner had decided that no
action was to be taken. He could not
eec that t lie school board bad any business
to interfere after the Commiesibaers had
Trustee Darlington, however, moved that
tlie conununication be referred to trustees
Shadd, Ilruce, Cornish rand Terrell as a
PIeical committee and it was so voted
without dissent.
Supt. Cook faid to a Times" reporter
that the concert only netted about $00.
It was held at Contention Hall on April
USlh last. Tliere were heavy expenses
and the income was not so large as hoped
for. The accounts of the affair are acces
sible to any one at his office. He declined
to allow the cxhlnit to go because it was
worth S1.000 to $1,500 and he wanted a
guarantee for it", safe return. Also be was
eure the attendants in charge of the ex
hibits at Atlanta should le teachers in
tlie rchool. bat lie bad no guarantee that
it would b bo.
Mr. Lawron paid last night, the Com
nlftdon was willing to send teachers ree
onitwEdeil by Supt. Cook to take charge
of the display, but the appointment must
have been made by the Commission.

Trustee Darlington stated that Mr.
George Smith, who had been teacher of
English, after a year's leave of absence
had notified the board of ills desire to
resume his position but at the last moment
had resigned. This had made it difficult
to choose a successor. The committee had
finally agreed to recommend Miss N. M.
Reynolds' for temporary head of the de
partment at $1,500 a year, to gointo effect
October 1. This was a promotion out of
order bat was only for the year.
The boanl voted its approval. There
was some talk or reducing tlie salary but
no action was taken.
Supt. Towell explained some changes
among tho teachers which had some appear
ance or unrairjicKs by saying that some
teachers last year had been placed above
the usual rank because the positions were
t the disposal of the board. This year
that ract was taken into consideration.
Upon motion oITrustee DarIlngton.lt was
voted that one more pupil be admitted
to the Normal class rrom the Western High
school .two more Irom theEa ster n.fourf rom
H10 Central and upon motion or Trustee
Cornish a proportionate number rrom tho
Colored nigh school. Tills will give two
more rrom tlie coforeil schools.

Atlanta, Gn., Oct. 8. The exposition city
to-day gave the Liberty Bell the most cor
dial greeting tbat the historic mass of
iron has ever received.
It was literally an outpouring of the peo
ple, such as has never been witnessed in the
town and it would be impossible to con
ceive a more notable exhibition of pa
triotism. For nearly two mile's the train
passed through solid walls or cheenRg peo
le. They stood massed on tops ol freight cars,
ji the bridges that span the railroad, on
roof toiis, and in facfon every place tbat
afforded a foothold. The Atlanta Light
Artillery fired the Presidential sa
lute and the first "shot was the signal for
every steam whistle in the city to shriek
out its discordant welcome
The scene in and around the. station
beggars description. The crowd seemed
wild with enthusiasm and from cery
window of eery factory, store aud dwel
ling there were waving flags and bander
chiefs. At the city limits Mayor Porter
Iving and a big cointultteemct the escort
party but there waB no formal reception
until the visitors reached the Kimball
House, where they are comfortably quar
tered. There Mayor King said a lew word of
welcome which were supplemented by
ex-Major Hemphill, and briefly responded
to by Mayor Warwick, of Philadelphia.
The bell stood for a time In the railroad
station, but later was taken to the shops,
where it will remain under guard until
to-morrow morning.
f o morrow's plans are for a most elab
orate parade and 'a formal reception. The
school children, local militia and several
patriotic orders will join in the demon
"Heart of Maryland" to Ilo Given at

The "Heart of Maryland" receUed Its
finishing touches last night, and the au

announce that the play is ready for pro
duction at the Grand Opera House to
night. Tew or the many plays that have been
given rirst performances in Washington
received as great care in rehearsals as has
been given "Heart of Maryland."
It Is promised that the theater going

Among the questions to come before tbe
Supreme Castle at the session will be
amendments to tbe constitution in regard
to taxation and readjustment ot the assess
ment. Under the present law a juris
diction thai has 2,000 members Is only

great hardship on some of tbc smaller
castles, and it is tbe Intention of the
present convention. If tbe necessary vote
can be mustered, to change the law to a
uniform assessment or 4 cents per member
annually without regard to size or juris
diction. Nominations for the various offices to
be filled during the session have been
made, and the discussion likely to grow
from them Is expected to make the session

The grand parade ot the order took

thousand men were in line, and the showy
lwfornis of tbe Knights made a brilliant
spectacle. All of the streets over which
the procession passed were crowded with
people, and many of the buildings along
tbe line of march were profusely decorated
with flags and bunting. Pennsylvania
perhaps made the finest showing in tbe
parade, and the marching of tbe Knights
from this State was one of the rcatures.

A Word to You Men
About Your Shoes
There has been considerable
talk by some shoe dealers about
the great advance in leather forc
ing- them to raise the price in
shoes. This kind of thing is all
rubbish. The slight advance in
leather does not affect the selling
price of our shoes.
The $r ice is the same, $j. The
quality, Jit and style are better than
ever before. We are doing' a
straight business. We have but
one fricc a frice that gives the
wearer viorejor his money than he
can get clsczvhcrc in the world.
Our shoes are superior to any
S3. SO shoe sold, and equal - to
many higher-priced ones. We
guarantee every pair as repre
sented or refund money.

surrounding polnta there are about 30 OJ0 more, thus furnishing an abundant sup
Dly of good operatives. Newport News belnr ono of tbe largest coal shipping
points In tho United states, tbe best steam coal can btthad at a minimum cost.
West Virginia coal can be laid dawn at lesa than S-tCO a ton against S3.G0aton
which Is paid by many ot tbe most successful mills In North Carolina. Its location
furnishes abundant transportation facilities by which to draw cotton by water from
all southern points, as well as lor shipment of tbe flulsaed product to any part ot
