At the session of the board of educa
tion last night in the city hall, there
were present Mr. A. E. Pomeroy in the
•chair and Messrs. Cox, Ellis, Woodbury,
Frew, Gosper, Mcintosh, Powers and
It was fully forty-five minutes after
the appointed hour before the board
■came to order, the members having held
a caucus in the office of the superintend
ent of schools, with the view of coming
to an agreement upon the blackboard
■question before entering the board room.
A communication was received from
the Seth Thomas Clock Company, of
San Francisco, asking for specifications
of the clock to be put in the tower of the
new high school building, in order that
it might put in a bid for the same. Re
ferred to the building committee.
A petition was received from C. G.
Williams, the contractor, asking for an
extension of thirty days' time on the ex
tra work on the Second and Beaudry
street schoolhouse, and was referred to
the building committee.
A communication was received from
George C. Safer, offering to slate a black
board (in the Spring-street school pre
ferred), with silica slating free, as an
experiment, and should the same prove
unsatisfactory, it should be replaced at
his expense by any blackboard desig
nated by the superintendent of schools,
the work to be done after the school
closed for the year. Referred to the
A number of applications for positions
as janitors in the public schools were
received and referred to the committee
A number of demands amounting to
$2,645.87 were approved as read, Mr.
The salary-rolls of the teachers and
janitors for the current month, amount
ing to $15,500, were approved, Mr.
AVhaling alone voting against the sal
aries of the kindergarten teachers.
Mr. Ellis, of the teachers' committee,
made the following recommendations
with reference to the salaries of the
teachers of the public schools for the en
suing school year, which was adopted
as read, Mr. Whaling voting negatively:
Teachers of second and third grades,
$70 to $80; third class, $80;
second class, $85; lirst class, $00
to $100; principals of four and less
than six-room schools, $115; principals
of eight rooms and "more, $135; high
school principal, $150; high-school
teachers, $115 to $135; drawing teacher,
$105; penmanship teacher, $125 ; super
intendent of schools, $225 ; assistant su
perintendent, $150; superior of kinder
garten, $50 to $80; superintendent of
janitors, $115; assistant superintendent,
$70; janitors, per room, $5.
Mr. Whaling made a vigorous objec
tion to the report, but was called to
order and suppressed under the "three
minute" rule. He and Governor Gos
per had a breezy tilt over the matter,
during which the former said that the
governor was "no gentleman." Mr.
Ellis explained that his committee had
made a very careful investigation of the
matter and was satisfied that its report
was fair to both sides, and that the
salaries as recommended were merited
by t he teachers.
Mr. Whaling offered a lengthy resolu
tion to the effect that the superintendent
of schools, principals and teachers of
the public schools for the ensuing year
present themselves and their creden
tials, thereby enabling the board
to select those possessing the
highest and best qualifications for the
same. The resolution was received and
ordered placed on file, after several
of the members had suggested its being
referred to the council and other muni
. cipal and foreign bodies.
Mr. Mcintosh,of the building commit
tee, made the following recommenda
tions, all of which were adopted:
That the recpiest of G. C. Willman for
an extension of time on the extra work
at the Second and Beaudry streets
school be granted.
That the lot of Mr. Hutchinson on the
corner of Temple and Casco streets be
purchased as a school site for $800.
That the lot at Temple and Casco
streets be graded before bids be adver
tised for the school building.
On motion of Governor Gosper it was
resolved that the public schools open for
the fall term of the school year on Sep
Tiie blackboard question was then
brought up for discussion. Governor
Gosper suggested that, as at an informal
meeting of the board, the majority of
the members expressed themselves
as in favor of the slated-cement
boards, though no definite agreement
could be arrived at, one of the school
rooms be furnished with each of the ac
ceptable boards, and the rest provided
with the cement board now in use in the
schools. After some discussion of the
matter, Mr. Mcintosh moved that all
bids be rejected, and that in order to
allow the board to find out by experi
ence which was the best, one room be
furnished with a hyloplate, another
with the Haynes, another with Sater's
silica, and another with a genuine slate
board, to be put up at the prices named
in the bids, in order to test their respec
tive merits and give the competitors an
equal show. In the meantime the Reno
filler slated-cement board, ac at present
in use, was to be placed in the buildings.
This motion prevailed, Mr. Woodburv
alont being opposed to it.
The board then adjourned until Mon
day, the 30th inst., when a special meet
ing will be held for the purpose of re
ceiving bids for the erection of school
houses at Bloom street, Temple street,
Seventh street, and an addition of four
rooms to the Thirtieth-street school.

The Rise of the Gypsy.
Edgar L. Wakeman, whtise life among
and close study of the Romany entitles
him to be ranked as the highest author
ity upon gypsies, furnishes from time to
time many interesting facts in regard to
their progress in this country. He states
that in Chicago there is a clergyman
who was born a gypsy. A member of
the Pennsylvania legislature has the
same origin. In Canada there are fifty
eminent professional people who are of
the Bohemian race. A prominent engi
neer on a southern railway is a
gypsy. Mr. Wakeman says that
in New York City there are
half a hundred gypsies, several of
whom are worth upward of $100,000
apiece. A Boston lawyer who is in good
practice is a gypsy. A San Francisco
caft' is owned and conducted by a gypsy,
who is very rich. In Indianapolis is a
physician in large practice, who passes
as an Englishman. He was born in a
Yetholm gypsy camp. One of the
wealthiest residents of Washington is a
gypsy. Certain business men in Rich
mond and Baltimore have the same ori
gin. Henry Stanley, of St. Paul, owns
property worth $40,000. The Cooper
family, of East Somerville, Boston,
are worth $250,000. Uriah Whar
ton owns $200,000 worth of real estate
in New York. In Canada the amount
of property owned by gypsies is very
large. Half a million dollars' worth of
property in and near Dayton, Ohio, is
owned by gypsies. In Milwaukee Elias
Brewer owns $50,000 worth of property.
"In short," says Mr. Wakeman, "I
make it as a statement of fact that I
could iill columns with names and ad
dresses and property estimates of nearly
a thousand gypsies in this country,whose
combined wealth would exceed $40,000,
Thus it is that the gypsies have be
come an interesting race "to the students
of sociology. Their advancement and
j prosperity are not suppositious. The
gypsies are becoming in reality an im
| portent part of the community." As Mr.
j Wakeman hints, some day the busy
politician will be scurrying about to
! catch the gypsy vote. —[New York

August. 1887, was a noted month. It
gave extreme heat and extreme cold,
the results of which were disastrous to
the public health. Cases of colic,
cholera morbus and diarrhoea were
abundant, and there were numerous
calls at the drug stores for Chamber
lain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy. Druggists of this city tell us
that this remedy has been more fre
quently called for during the past
month than any other preparation, and
that it has proven a panacea for the
very worst cases. Chamberlain's Colic
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy is a
meritorious medicinal preparation for
all summer complaints for which it is
recommended, and grows in popularity
