Fire In n School Itooui.
Yesterday afternoon about 2 o'clock, there
was u Marrow escape from a heartrendhur
calamity at the Catholic school, opposite the
Cathedral, on KotT street, A little girl was
stirring the fire in one of the rooms on an
upwr uoor, when In some manner the stove
was upsor, the coals Doing scattered over
the Hour, where they at once kindled nutte
a blazo. The frightened childicn ran for
the stairs, and wero quickly jammed into a
mass of scrcumicg, crying girls, so tightly
wedged in the narrow stairway that it was
impossible for any of them . to move. By
the presence of iulnd of ono of ihe sisters
i ... . promptly extinguished
without doing any more serious damrtce
umu cnarring 'trie tloor for sonic *pacc
around, and breaking up the school for the
remainder of the day. It seemed to those
who witnessed the jam on the stairway that
a serious casualty was only averted by the
merest chance. One little girl, Aggie Conrad,
was hurt, falling part way down the
steps, and cutting and brniiiog her face and
head badly. An alarm was rung in from box

After some Informal consideration of these
figures, lJr. Jfivson moved to divide the portion
of the city east of the river, which includes
all but the Island, into seven wards,
as nearly equal na practicable, the wards to
be numbered consecutively from inrtlj to
south and the Island tu be the Kigbth ward.
Tiiia provoked a good deal ot discussion,
soiuo of the metuburaof the committee considering
the proposed change in Us jiolitlcul
k curing, to which, however, the Doctor
stated that ho had given no consideration in
thinking over the plan proposed. Deducting
the population of the lilund, 11,800, from the
tola) population of tho ohy. 30,181 there remains
a population of 27,5182, which would
give as tlie approximate population of each
of tho seven new wards, .'5,Oil. This would
necessitate the formation of the Fourth ward
out of terrilory divided by Wheeling <reek,
U'iltoli limit !\( ?tmui? ni-Amiiit (mill'1 ........ ..U
jectiounble, ami the factor's motion was rejected.
It was then suggested that tho population
of the Fifth and JJlxth wards be equalised by
taking u porlioit of the latter and adding it
I to thu territory of the former, but this was
decidedly disapproved by the representatives
I of those wards.
Mr. Kobinson then moved to allow the
wards to remain ou at present constituted,
the members o/ Council being allotted to
them proportionally to their populations,
and this proposition was unanimously
An apportionment on a basis of one Councilman
to every I 000 population, and an additional
one to SCO additional in any ward,
was proposed. This would increase the
| membership of the Second Jlranch from 25
to 28, giving the First ward 4, the b'econd,
Third, Fourth and.fifth f{ each, the Sijjth S,
, the Seventh baud the Highlit -J. This wus
! found liable to serious objections. A new
j proposition was entertained to establish a
| new ward consisting of the portions of the
present First, Second. Third and Fourth
I wards lying east of the hill, dividing the remaining
territory north of the creek into
| three wards, but ibis was ?lso abandoned.
Mr. Miller wanted to report in favor of
leaving the Branch just as it now is, but was
| informed that this could not legally be done.
A motion to adont a basis of 1 <(00 was earrieil.
but this was afterwards reconsidered, and the
plan adopted of ulloting doc member to each
1100 of population, This Rives to the Branch
, a membership of 23, divided as follows:

Wnn( !o Investigate.
List night just before the Hoard of Education
adjourned Dr. Ilildreth introduced a
resolution appointing President tyiluon, Dr.
Jepson n?d J. 11. .Acker a committee to investigate
the present school system and tee if
' "lore economical plan could not beadonted
for their government without detriment to'
the schools. The resolution was evidently
BOniethng of a surprise to every one, but .Mr.
Caldwell came to his feet at once and wanted
to know the cause of this unusual procedure
A school year only half out, half the members
about to vacate?he could not understand
it. Jhd the resolution intend to caot any
reflection on Professor Birch or on the Board?
He thought the resolution an utterly useless
one. Mr. Miller and Doctor Pipes spoke on
the matter, and could see no necessity fur the
resolution. Mr. W. A. Wilson said be was
. in favor of a sweeping investigation?was always
an favor of them. .Mr. WiUjn was immediately
added to the committee, also Dr.
Uildretb, and the resolution adopted with a
general laugh. Mr. Wilson, when asked his
reason, replied, "Because I uai?investigations
never do any harm. We'll investigate

had nothing to say beyond what was
in lis resolution. It is suggested
by several that it is a plan adopted
by the Doctor to again bring up the scheme
ot combining the grammar rooms of the
city into two, to be known as High Schools. '
The committee, it will be remembered, reported
a short time since, that it was not at
present advisable to adopt that plun. The
Intelmocxcbu a short time since published
an article on this subject, that contained the
idtnadvanced by l)r. Hildretb, and entertuined
by several others of the Board;including
the Superintendent. but the general
opinion of the Board is, tuat the change
cannot properly be made for some time.

Among the numerous projected railroad
a tor prise* In (his State and vicinity few
lave am much importance to tills immediate
ectlon as (ho Wheeling <fc I,ake Krie road, In
lonncctlon with the South Pennsylvania
oat! and the proposed union railroad bridge
iver the river at tnts point. Tbeso three proecla
are reAlly one in interest, and are seldom
onsidered apart in the general programme,
'ortjomu months they have rather been lost
Ight of by the public, but within a day or
wo they have aguln assumed a prominence
o which their importance entitles them.
From ? gentleman who Is veil posted on
ho situation a reporter yesterday obtained
oine Information uf Interest.
The South Pennsylvania road has already
icon located us far west as the Monongahola
Ivcr. ond tho portion of tlia lln? eantn/ihkt.
Ivor will bo under contract within the next
wo weeks. West of the Monongahela four
outcs have been surveyed to the Ohio,
'hree of theso liavo this cllv ns their objecIvo
point, ami the other strikes tho river at
ho mouth of Uhort creek. The choice of
bese routes is now under consideration, and
rill depend largely upon tho disposition toward
ttio enterprise shown hy this conununly.
Capitalist* at Cleveland arc exerting
uelr Intlnence to secure a route which will
void thlsoity, and several of them, it is said,
. ere rcccntly in New York In the interests
f this plan. The llnal decision of the man*
ger's of the road will depend lureely upon the
oute chosen by the Wheeling A*.
,?kc Krlu road. Should the latter,
s it is now believed they contemplate, cross
he river at Portland, instead of ut this city,
he South IVnnsylvanla road will not, of
oursu, have any Inducement to come to
Wheeling, us hy so doing they Bacritlce h
liorter line and a cheaper out'. The only
lilntr weighing in the Wance against this
honor ..ml cheaper route, the Informant
tre quottd said, was the freight business of
Ills ctty. This has been estimated in round
umbo is to he 8lfi,00Q tons pur annum, to
love which require* oil an averago 235 cars '
er day.' 't'hlfl business is largely furnished
y the mills, and to compote for a share of it
road must have acccas to the portion of the 1
Ity in which tho majority of the mills are

ubllc manifest a deslro to extend a welcome i
> the road, the gentleman thought there
imld be no donbL tlmt Wheeling would be :
looted as the bridging point. j
The advantages of the rond were br'ully I
<etelied. Its construction would place i
/heeling on a direct route between the ?
ist ami west (V> miles shorter than any oth- i
r, and btlieved to be the shortest prncticnle.
It would also place tho city within j
did 05 to 70 miles of ttiu Pennsylvania coke |
elds. The directness of the route from this
oini westward furnished by the W. it L. K. ,
>ad an originally located is shown by the i
ict that it makes the distance from Wheelig
to Toledo 200 miles, whereas by a bee
ne it is lift miles.
The reporter inquired what would be tho
to of tho tironoHi'd Union railroad bridge at
lis point it the two roads songJt connection
; another point, and the answer was that a !
aw examination by an United States Comision
detailed for the purpose would be
icessaty, which, with evidence that the
cation tor a bridge here had been abandon-1 [
nvuiu uuuuuuiowurc tiieuuuiomy to I
oss elsewhere. Tho locution at Portland '
said to be a very favorable one, and the
'ntleninn was otopinion that tiulepa Wheelg
showed more appreciation of the road
at point would bfl chosen for tlie crossing.
