Sept. 19;--Quite a lively election was held yesterday at tho Long Branch school In which tho advocates of the "Unknown Tongue" religion played quite a conspicuous part, winning tho election for them selves hy voting a negro. It is re called that this school was tho occa sion of oom iu"iablo public comment seine months ago when Ibo county board ol' education dismissed tho board ol' trustees for employing o, teacher who was not properly quail? (led and who consumed much of tho school lime teaching the "Unknown Tongue." The election yesterday was on tho question of voting a special tax for the schools in that district. All those who are believers in Hie unknown tongue religion and who withdrew their patronage ol' the school last spring when the old board was di . missed and a new teacher employed, were opposed lo the tax, according to the statement of the managers ol' the election, who wei'e here to-day and reported the matter to Superin tendent Pitts. The final vote was a tie, l-l to 14, hut late in tho day, ono Preston Blakeley, colored, cast his ballot against, the tax. The proposed levy was, therefore, defeated, hut an other petition will at once ho circu lated. However, it Is feared that since one negro voted this Hmo, doubtless more will bo Influenced nt the next election. The people of the district are much stirred up over the occurrence, since lt ls their desire to lin provo tho school and '.ho tax ls necessary to do this. Go With a Hush.
