Comhv 7vaurer, CALVIN M. ARNEK. Tionesta. The County Superintendent's Salary. After lioo eoinplainiug that tlio Rk n iii.H AN bad ex oinled the apace of column in giving the correct "history"' (and truthlul one, too, mint) you) ol the manner by nhlclilhe superintendent of schools of Forest county is enabeleit to draw five hundred dollars per year extra from the tax payers of the county, the editor of the MarienviUe Express pro ceed to go u one better and occupies Iwo column in an effort to refute the plain, unvarnished facts, and, n liile not intending to do o, corrolioiates every material point laid bare by this paper. Before proceeding further let us again briefly but plainly put the facts fairly be fore the public: First. The convention ol school direc tors which elected K. E. Stitzinger super intendent of schools of Forest county in May, 18W, took absolutely no action on the matter of fixing bis salery: Second. The average school term pre ceding that election did not csnvtt seven and one-half months, and therefore the salary of the Superimlcnt would not be more than 1,(KK) per annum, unless other wise fixed by a vote of that convention : Third. The olllcers of Unit convention, after adjournment, in certiying Mr.Stitz inger'a election to the State Superinten dent, inserted in that certificate after the word "Salary," Fifteen Hundred (fl.WO) Dollars, notwithstanding the convention had taken no action on the question of salary. Fourth. The Superintendent-elect re- ceived and accepted aduplicatecertiiicala from said officers knowing full well the convention had not voted him such a sum, and has received an I accepted the sum stipulated-iifteeti hundred dollars per year. We want tlio public to keep the fore going facts in mind so as not to get con fused by and falsehood which the Ex piraa may employ to bolster up an un lawful transaction that is costing tho tax pavers of Forest county live hundred dollars a year. And now as to the Expreaa' wearisome tirade o: abuse of individuals for daring to defend the taxpayers against a pro ceeding so manifestly unrighteous, the public i ares nothing, much less do we. What the people want is the truth, the facts in the case, and those they are going to have through the columns ofthe Rk rfiii.icAX. The Expreaa, socager tocreato pieju dice in tho minds of the people and thus draw the fire away from the main question, naturally gets balled up in its reasoning. For instance it says : When the question of salary was raised in the convention Mr. Sti'tzinger was asked to speak and said the aierago school term in the county the past year was seven and one-half months, and he believed that tixed the salary at flaOn per Tear. Tile words "nllecn hundred dollars" never fell from the lips of Mr. Stitzinger during the silting of that convention. He contented himself by simply saying "that would fix tho salary." Why he avoided mention of the amount of salary must be left to conjecture. Again we quote from the Ejrjn e.ui : As no person In the convention ex pressed a different opinion and there was no motion to fix the salary, the chair man, T. J. Keyner. twice asked if the convention was satisfied with that slate mentand salary, and neither liniH was there a dissenting voice raised. Thif piece of 'n formation is news lo the members of that convention and eveiy person in the audience who listened at tentively to the proceedings. It is not true in fact, hut supposing It were, did that silence give Mr. Keyner license to sign or Mr. Stitzinger the legal right lo accept, a certificate such as is on file in the State school department? Is not every sane person aware that it requires the vote of a majority of the school di rectors' convention to increase tho Sup erintendent's salary almve flOou a year? It is often remarked that "silence gives consent," but this silence, according to the Express, has proved the most expen sive to the taxpayers of Forest couutv of any we have beard of, co-ting them $.VK) annually. Again quoting irom the Ex preaa, llefore that convention was held the length of term of each district in the county was given to State Superintendent Schaefer, and he was asked what under the law and that aveiage length of school term the Superintendent's salary would be, and his reply was ftloOu. Until that visit to Harrisburg the salary of the Superintendent waa paid out of tho funds appropriated for paying the salaries ot superintendents; since that visit two thirds has been paid out ol that fund and ono-third out of the appropriation to the schools of Forest county. There is something wrong with tlieso two sentences. They don't harmonize If Supt. Schaelfer was paying Mr. Stitz inger's salary "out of the funds appro priated for paying superintendent's sal aries,'' why did he c-liango that method ami deduct the .VM) from the appropria tion for F'orest county T The quickest way to piove the falsity of thoso two sen tences is to quote f'r. Schacffcr's letter, which vindicates tho Doctor, anil relieves ; hi in of the awkward position in which I the Express socks to place him.

Th salary of the county snporinten- . dent of Kon-st Couutv has been paiil on ' the ( crlilicHUi of Flection sunt by the convention of Directors. The excess has lieen deducted from the appropriation due for Forest couuty. The law does nut specify the method of calculating the average length of the school term. Ofthe ditlcreut methods tor calculating the averse" I th'iik w e have adopted the one to w huh the least objection can le urged. The method ot making this calculation must evidently Is? determined by the Sirierimendeiit of I'liblic Instruction. The Act of Assembly says "that in all counties having over two hundred and ninety schools or twelve hundred square miles of territory, or a school term ex ceeding seven and one-half mom ha the salary of the superintendent shall not be less than tilleeu hundred dollars." Some of your questions are repetition of preceding questions and I do not deem it iiicumticiit to answ er the same point twice in same letter. Yours truly, Nathan C. Si-hakkkkr. State Supt. of Public Instruction, If the foregoing letter proves anything it proves as plainly as language can do so that the Expi ess is sacking to lalsifv the records and grossly deceive the pub lic. It will be noted that the letter was wrtten in September last, four in tubs prior to "t at visit" which seems so to rankle in the editor's craw. The Express' silly twaddle on that subject, and its state ment that from that time on the manner of paying Supt. Stitzingcr's sal try was changed, is loo ridiculous to require refu tation. Dr. Schacffcr's own language gives the lie so plainly to the editor's statement that it would seem common decency should dissuade him from furth er attempt to maintain the falsehood. Tho Exprrsa denies the accuracy of our statement to the effect that all but two districts in tho county seut representa tives to the convention called to investi gate the superintendent's salary ques tion, and states that "Hicen Independent did not elect" a delegate. 1 he Kurriiu can never makes a statement it can't back up with tho lacts. Here are the minutes of that eonveullou, verbatim : Tionestn, ii , .Viir. 12, ltioi. The following school directors, being delegates duly elected by the school boards of the districts w hich they repre sent, viz: Harnett, Isaiah Cassett. ireen, Kdward Riser. lireen indc)endcnt. tieorgo Watson. Harmony, Wm. U. Morrow. Howe, J. C. Welsh. Kingsley, Rev. Win. Richards. Tioiiesta, C. F. Ledebur. Tionesta Horo, J. C. Scow den, met at the Court House at 2:30 o'clock P. M. oil the l'Jlh day of March, 1111, and ef fected an organization by electing Rev. Win. Richards i.f Kinuslev township president, and Wm. U. Morrow of Har mony township, secretary. The object ol the meeting was briellv (.taled by the president, Mr. Richards, to be, to bring about the adjustment ol the error in the unteinent tiled with the State Superintendent of Public Instruction of l'enns Ivania, that tho action of tho convention of the school director of For est County, held in Mav, lfWl, tixed the salary of County Snperintei denl K. E. Stitzinger, at lilieen hundred (!) dol lars per annum, when no action was taken by saio convention. It was moved by J. C. Welsh, and sec onded by Kdward Kiser, that Rev. Will. Richards of K ngsley township, and J.C. Scnwden of Tionesta Horo, wait upon Sunt. K. Stitzinger and the olllcers of the convention of school directors of ISW, with a proposition to leave the ma'ter of fixing or adjusting the salary of Sunt. K. K. stitzinger, with the State Superinten dent of Puplic Instruction, in accordance with the paper presented to this conven tion, and report to this convention, with in thirty (:loj days, at a meeting to be called by the president. Motion carried. It was moved by J. C. Scnwden and seconded by C. F.Y,edebur, that we em ploy T. f . Kilchey Ksq. as our attorney. Motiou carried. It was moved by J. C. Scnwden and seconded by J. C. Welsh, that weadjourn to in- et at the call of the president. ' Motion carried. Wm. G. Morrow, Sec. It will be observed that eight ofthe ten school districts, or four-tilths, were represented, and that Green Independent was one of them, and that by nol . ss a personage than Mr. Ceorgo Watson, who participated in the proceedings of that convention, expressed himself as well satisfied with the spirit of the meeting and its actions, and said he would speak per sonally with superintendent Stitzinger on the matter. As to where this investiga tion was started the records will show tl at Green township was the first to pro pose il, and the first to elect a delegate in the person of Mr. Kdward Kiser, a mem ber of the school board of that twp., the assertion of the Expreaa or any one else to the contrary notwithstanding, The editor the Expreaa acknowledges being present when the certificate of election were filled out, and says "both were signed by the chairman and exam ined by several others." And doubtless pronounced a good job. The editor of the RKrrm.iCAN did name Prof. Speer before the convention hut used no such nonsensical language as the Express would put in his mouth; however, had the convention seen the wis dom of electing Prof. Speer he would not to-day be drawing f.HK) excess salary from the taxpayers of F'orest county on a cer tificate that falsifies the action of that con vention. If the editor of the Express or any one else desires to uphold such official con duct it is their privilege so to do, as for this journal It w l.l not be found In that kind rif business. In spite of many nucxpected difficult ies the President has sounded the main koynotes of his journey across the conti nent. Ofw. Fit. John Porteb, whose name became famous during the civil war, died on Tuesday at his home, Morris town, Jf. J., aged 80 years. Tub Supreme Court on Monday ren. dered a decision sustaining the constitti -tioiiality of tlio so-called "ripper hill." Now look out for an onslaught by the in. slirgoiit sheets. An immense merchant steamship of ll,( ton was launched at San Francisco hist week. Uncle Sam's expansion on the Pacific bring along otio or two big Hems every day. In less than six mouths after tho re election of a Republican President tho Filipino forces in the field surrendered. No one is in doubt now about what kept the insurrection alive. An American torpedo boat just com pleted at Hath, Me., has a spoed ol thirty four miles an hour. Tho contract was for a mile less, but marine buildors in this country are accustomed to give good measure. Aftkii a heated discussion Tammany has decided not to invite Mr. Ilryan to its Fourth of July celebration. Gelling the Democratic nomination for president seems to unfit a man lor further pr.rty usefulness. From lite Holy laud. Damamts, Syria, April St), t'Ml. Viir Etlilor: I spoilt about two hours la-t night in America, principally in Tionesta and you can rest assurd I fully enjoyed it. I mean by this that I got my mail, the first in three weeks, and in tho quiet of my room forgot all about my "pilgrim age" and the strange and wonderful scenes through w hich I have been daily passing and read my papcis-TiiK 1!k rriiLii'AX and let era surrounded by the familiar scenes, faces and voices of good old America and Americans. How- true it is that "We never miss the water Till the well runs dry." I even read all the advertsctnents and then to finish up read over the list of boro and county ollieers. You gave the only account I have seen of the capture of Agiiinaido. We had only heard a ru mor of it before. Our Palestine company trip is over and just at present there is a slight dilfeieuce of opinion expressed in regard to it. Some w ho w ere not used to toughing it on horseback feel a little tired and sore and think tho trip too hard for anyone to undergo, others wero more oblivious to the hardships, or more accustomed to them and are enthus'astie over it, I be long to the lalter class ami feel amply re paid for the weariness of body, without which no one can take the trip, ami only wish I could have had more lime on the way to absorb w hat I saw and learned. Tho whole way from Jaffa to Heyrout was tilled with surprises, wonder and de light. I had rend considerable about Palestine and thought I knew something aliout it, hut I now confess that my con ceptions in most cases weie far from the reality in so far as the topography of il is concerned. To attempt a description of this country in a letter would be to fail, so I shall confine myseli to mailer in general and leave (he rest for some future and more suitable occasion. Our landing at Jaffa was done by small boats coming out a half mile to meet us. There is no dock here at all. This is one of the things travelers diead, as the na tives yell rnd pull and clamor at you in an unknown tongue till you scarcely know yourself and could not recognize your own voice. Ti o wav iu is full of rocks which in a rough set are not w ith out danger to the boats. Fortunately we got in at early dawn and had tho benefit of a itiide who'knew w hat to do and how tj treat those fellows so that wo got to land without incident worthy of note. Of course we looked up the house of Si mon the Tanner and found it, and read that portion of Scripture referring to him. The well of water and large stone trough are still there and thcic is not much doubt as to the Identity, of the place. Then we drove to the house, or rather the tomb of Dorcas, where a Greek church now stands. Jaffa is a much larger and more beauti ful city than I bad expected to find. It numbers about 3.",000 souls and ha at tained its recent size and importance largely iu consequenso ofthe large num ber of pilgrims (almut 15,(100 annually) who go to Jerusalem. Large orchards of oranges, figs and similar fruits, with grain and beautiful flowers in full bloom were on every hand. Tho air was soft and balmy which with a gentle sea breeze blowing in the cool of the morning gives one a very pieasant recollection ol the place. We left on the Jerusaloni and Jaffa railroad which isa narraw guago bul fair ly comfortable road. At once we stuick the renowned plain of Sharon lying be tween almost parallel ranges ol bills run ning east and west but gradually closing in on us as we procedtd toward Jerusa loin. This plain is about sixteen miles wide near the sea and is usually very fruitful. This year the winter rains were light and ceased early so that al most a drought has come upon tlio land as in the days of old. As we proceeded eastward these ranges of hills closed in till wn soon found ourselves in a deep gorge, up which we wended our way like a serpent's trail till we reached the great centre of the world's hist ry Jerusalt in. This road Is ,"4 miles long and fully half the way it runs through this deep gorge, Kvery foot of the way is filled with Inter est and our new dragoman, Ksa, was kept busy pointing out Intso places. How strange it sounds to our ears lo near called out, the plain of Sharon, Lydtla, Rauilelt, Gl.uh, lleth Heron, lleth Shem esh, Yaie of Klah, and know we were looking upon landscapes that hail been the scenes of conflicts, or hallowed asso ciations, now possessing a reality un known before. And then the incongru ity of Jerusalem for a railway station, I am sure I would haye enjoyed it much better had we been able to ride or drive up from Julia. It would certainly have been much more in keeping with the fitness of things than niching iu on a modern railway train. There are only three tilings in all Pal estine that I think I would have recog nized without assistance and one of these is Jerusalem. Had I bieii blindfolded, not knowing where I was being led, and takeu to the top of any of the hi lis round about and tho bandage then removed I would have said that is Jerusalem, i could not miss it the city of David. Two familiar passages from the Psalms came to my mind and received a new intcrpro tion "Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together." It has been said to have no suburbs, and il is only recently that any considerable number of houses have been built oulsido the walls. These high walls surround an exceedingly small enclosure br 00,000 people. Iu our country it would not contain an ordinary village They know how to economize space The streets are moro nlleis and the space lor a famil f is small. The other passage was this "As the mountains are round about Jerusalem so the Lord is round about his people. While the city is on a hill il is surround, ed on all sides except the west by hills still Higher but separated by deep val leys only In the north. This inado the city such a safc pla e and gave David so much trouble to lake from the Jcbusiles, From all sides one can look dow n into the city. Kspecially is this ti uo from the Mount of Olives which is over against the temple ami whero our Lord doubtless stood w hen he wept over tho city. The hill is so precipitous tuat the distance is short one-half milo or less I should say in a direct line and very much higher, Be tween lies the valley of Jehoshaphat through which "Siloam's shady rills," runs, only in the winter. The wall of the city on this cast side, which formed the east side loiiiidalion of tho temple Look Oul for I l you want a Mill" Hat, NIraw ( loth 'a, jim! buy be ere you sec our slot k, it is your mistake ; not ours. SIi-uh Sailor nul C loth hat tor I.nriit'M. was once l.'iT feet high, but the base is now covered to uite a distance with de bris. A part of the original w all is said tobovi iblo. Large stones 20 foot long, four wide, fitted so closely that a knife blade cannot be Insei ted aro now in the wall, and difference between these stones and this work and what lies about is marked. The usual places of interest were visit ed. The church of tho lbdy Scpuleher was full of pilgrims from all latuls and the holy relics and places were, to our eyes, idolatrously levcrenccd. Tho stone whero the body wss embalmed wa-- a place hero the devotion was parti ularly no ticed. Kneeling before the slab, which rested on a step about a foot high, they would low, laying their faces upon it, kiss n g it most aidentlyand laying coins, handkerchiefs and even rags and paper upon it and then turned aw ay while their lips moved In earnest prayer. This was true of many other things In the temple, the tomb itself, the cover, the cradle, Ac. We followed the Via Dolorosa from Pi late's Judgment Hall till il seemed tost iu the scramble to locate the real place of the crucifixion. New Calvary, as it is called because only recently accepted as the real Calvary by many, is Just outside the city wall east of the Damascus gale and seems to fulfill the scriptural ac count. On the sight of the temple now stands a Mohamedan mosque built over the threshing floor David brought from Aru mah, and said to lie the costliest mosipie In the world. Il is octagonal in form and constructed of beautiful marble all finished and carved with wonderful skill. Everywhere costly lamps are hinging, some of thoin richly adorned w ilh crystal glass pendant. I do not think it is intended as a place of w orship as we understand that term, but rather a place of relic veneration. I saw pilgrims reach their hands through the grating that surrounded the rock and rub their faces, often kissing the hand that touched tho stone. Two o: the Prophets hairs are there in a case. These 1 did not see. J usl south of this iu the same area is the ltlos'ilo of El Aksu w here they show the prints ol the Savior's leet in a rock. One tun s away fro ii all these things with very mingled feelings. The tfrceta, I. at ins and Mohamedaus have located every impoitant place and have built a church over It. Who'i speaking of the sea of iialih e one day a member of the parly asked in a semi-serious manner if a church had been Iniilt over that yet. I shall only mention one other place visited here and that is the I'pper Room limb rnealh which David's tomb is said to be. Only three of us made this trip as ii was done very early on ti e morning w e left Jerusalem and was not without some unusual proceeding. Our dragomen and guides hal told us that it could not be seen on account of very fanatic Mohaine dans, whndwe't ill that part of t .0 city and who would not permit any one to go there. Of course this only increased our desire to go while at the same tune we I did not feel like taking too great risks, I One of our number saw Dr, Merrill, our Consul, and secured bis kawass or spec ial representative, and also a soUier, ihe former leading the way and tho latter bringing up the rear. The trip was made without incident, however, but how much we owe to theso men of freedom from molestation we do not know. The place was an old house recently repaired just outside .ion's gate ai d looked to be suited to the purpose, and wilh the adja cent room suUlcieiitly large to shelter the one hundred and twenty who remained here waiting for the descent of tho Holy Spirit. Although Jerusalem is situated in the midst of rocky, barren hills for the must part, and in aciuutry badly watered one can see how the Jewish heart could cling toil and in his exile say, "How can we sing the songs of Zion in a strange land." "If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand foruct her cunning, In my next letter I shall tell youof our camping trip which l'liail neither time nor disposition to wri'e. Very sincerely. J. V.
