The audience ut the colored folks' meeting
at Washington Hall lust evening was shamefully
small, but the exercises were worthy
of a crowded house. After an instrumental
performance bd by Mr. I', Bell, an address
of welcome, appropriate and well vrorded,
was delivered by Mr. F. W. Wright. Owing
to the absence of oue member of the Arion
Colored Quartette, MessrB. Moore, Dorsey
and McCullough appeared as a trio. They
sang "Moonlight on the Lake" and other
popular selections beautifully. Col. Alex
Turner spoke eloquently as is his wont of the j
Progress of the Colored hace. J le said the
sun of the race was at high noon, lie urged
colored men to act like nien, and to show
self respect about hotels and other public
place-; and claimed the right, of cojored
children to attend the school nearest their
home, instead of, as in this city, coming from
remote parts of town and climbing a hilj
which a rocky mountain goat could not
ascend in slippery weather.

two statements in this morn log's Jlcijuter
In relation to the proceedings ofthoconven*
tion of colored citizens held hero yesterday.
The statement aforesaldjs_deslgnated "Under
a misapprehension ot the law," etc.
Now, there was no misapprehension of the
school law on the part of the delegates, und I
am glad that thq IUyirter has obliged the
public with the two sections of the law. Section
IS, given in the article, is the most important
to the'colored people of thoState. It is
the enforcement of that scetiou that we are
demanding, for. under the present status,
no colored children whose cases couie under
that section are reaping the benefit of the
objective point aimed at in the section. The
section tuus made a dead letter should be
rupuuiea. iue oerouu statement antagonizing
the names of Mr. Campbell mid Col. Sterling
is a mistake in to to. Nothing in reference
to the above named gentlemen was spokeu
in the convention. G. T. Jokes,

Accompanying this was a minority report
from Dr. iitldreth : "Dissenting and dlsapproving
of the first resolution, us too indefinite.
1 herewith otter the following as u
minority report."
IlcJuketl, That upon opening the Public
Schools in September, 1883, the scholars in
the higher branches above the grade of grammar
schools, as spccilied in the School Law
of 1879, be removed to and occupy the Filth
ward school house, which is hereby set apart
for that purpose, or as mucli, thereof as may
be necessary; and further, that tint boundaries
of Centre District (Fifth ward) be so constructed
that the unoccupied part of said
school house may be used for tho primary
school aud said sub-district.
The question coming up on the adoption of
tli o minority report Dr. Kildreth made a
speech of about teu minutes duration tiiat
was tho ucmoof conciseness and showed careful
study and research, lie showed wi at
had been the cost in erecting the schoolhouses
of the city since it was formed into
an independent school district, lie carefully
reviewed what the exuense of u irrummur
rootu in each sub-district was at presenthow
each wus in fact a high school with u
few scholars in each bub-district und how
they should be grouped together, thus saving
an enormous expense in the way of salaries,
lie commanded the closest attention and was |
deservedly congratulated at the conclusion of
his remark*.
Mr. J. C. Miller moved that the reports be
refeired to the Committee on Teachers and
Schools, and that Dr. llildreth be requested
to furnish the committee with thy manuscript
of his speech. These motions prevailed
after somo little discussion, during which
several gentlemen took occasion to endorse
the Doctor's views and assert that in sending
the matter to the committee they had no
desire to defeat its purpose.
The Committee on Accounts recommended
the payment of bills amounting to $184 7o,
which was ordered. The rules were also suspended
and one or two unimportunt bills
ordered paid.
During the severe illness of Clerk Pendleton
the minutes have fallen far behind. The
past week Superintendent Birch has been
busily engaged writing them up. They were
all read lost eveiuing and approved.

I In the last report the writer neglected to
mention the talk of Deputy State Superintendent
Houck, on the subject of grammar,
lie gave his trials and tribulations in his
attempt to get a knowledge of his mother
tongue through the medium of a text book
ougrammar. It was very amusing, and the
teachers wcru ull sent home iu a good humor.
The exercises are growing moro interesting
as the institute progresses. The singing of 1
Miss DeMosa seems to grow butter each time
she appears before the audience, aud each i
night she has been loudly encored. The
regular instructors oil seem to have not only
the attention but also the undivided interest
of all the teachers. Yesterday's exercises
were opened with singing by the entire 1
audience, ltev. J. 11. Johnson, 1). L)., U. 1'.
minister of this place, made the opening i
prayer.
Prof.'Kennedy gave a very interesting and (
instructive talk on "Word Analysis." Prof.
Ilouck followed on the subject of Orthography.
lie took the ground tiiatgood spellers
could not be made by either the oral or written
methods exclusively, but thnt they 1
should be combined.
A short recess followed, after which Dr.
Woods, of the College, gave a short talk on ,
temperance. A quartette of male voices sang
a most beautiful selection, and sang it well. .
Prof, Sanford, of tho Washington Union
school, read an ably prepared paper on Oral
Teaching, lie made many good points, and
was loudly applauded at the close of his remarks.
l)r. Mendenhall gave u talk on natural
philosophy which held the undivided
attention of the entire audience during its
delivery, and all seemed sorry ^hon \t was
done.
Tli?i doxolony was sung by the Institute
and the exercises or the forenoon wore over.
In the afternoon the exerciso were opened
with sinRing "Beulah Land," which seems to
be a favorite with the entire institute. Prof.
John Kennedy gave a talk on "Primary
Heading." This was followed liy an instrumental
duett, Mis8i\nuip2dooNsou the piano,
ai>d Mir. UcCojiaughey on the organ. They
were loudly encored, and gave another beautiful
selection, lid winLinton, A.. B., Profes
sor 01 ueoxogy in wasmngton-Jeiierson college,
gave a most interesting lecture on the
subject of "Gulf Stream Dredging." lie gave
wauy specimens of animal life obtained from
the bed of the ocean within the \iu\Ug <yf thu
famous Gulf 8treaty.
Supt. Spijigl^ qi Westmoreland courtly,
gave an interesting talk to the teachers. He
is u pleasant speaker, and his remarks were
well received. Miss DeMosssang a solo, and
us usual was loudly encored.
The exercises of the afternoon slewed wttb
a short, but ve^y spirited talk by Deputy
Superintendent ilouck. is wonderful, the
power ho has to hold an audieuce.
Two hundred and eighty-nine teachers, ure
now enrolled, aud the very best of order and
the utmost Attention shsraoterlkes all the
meetings. Yesterday the hall was crowded
to its utmost capacity all day, many being
forced to stand. Dr. Mendenliall gave his

The -fondest hopes of the stockholders
Ike Tunhamlle Gas Company have been realteed.
At 9:30 o'clock yesterday morning at a
ilepth. of 1,310 feet, a vein of gas equal to jf
uot greater than that of the famous McQuigan
well was struck, causing the workman to
stop operations. Tbo news spread over the
town uktf wild fire, Hundreds of citizens
visiting the well to witness the escape of the
gas.
>"ire has not been applied as yet, as it would
aouBume the derrick and other buildings.
Pipes will be luid us soon as possible to convey
the nas from the well, when it will be
ignited. Then look out [at the grandest illumination
that this section of country has ever
witnessed ftovu natural causes.
When a reporter visited the well a score of
small boys were amusing themselves l?y holding
their hats over the mouth of the well to
see how high they would rty with the air. A
board was placed o\er|the mouth of the well
and three men stennpil
bined weight was not sutHolent to hold the
b&ud in posiijon,
Everybody oonyratulutes the company
upon their discovery. Mr. W: C. Barclay,
the prime mover in the organization of the
company,has for many years held the opinion
that gas could be found in that locality. His
perseverance has been rewarded.
About 2 o'clock Thursday morning a tolerable
heavy vein of gaq waa found, large
enough to put the workmen at the well on a
very sharp took out for accident*. As the
S03 that was escaping from the well was sufllcient,
had it been ignited from the torches
about the derrick to havo causcd their instant
destruction, Watchfully ami carefully
with tht*ir lives at stake, the drill was kept
moving until \13;) yesterday morning, where
the great body of gas was struck. The tools
were drawn and luid to one side. Visitors
thronged the grounds all day long, looking
on in wonder and astonishments at the power
of the escaping gss, as the small boy would
try to hang his rat on it, or stand over the
mouth of the well, oniy to have the clothes
almost blown ofi'hiin. Connections have been
telegraphed for and arelonkou roron'the 0:30
i*. m. train. If thi*y como an effort will be
made to laau the gas from the well to-night,
and set lire to It to prevent it taking tire and
consuming the derrick and machine liniltl. I

body in town that can get out of doors bos
been thore, or will be inside of the next
