A short history of the institution pre
pa-red b. Mr. N F. Walker as a contri
bution to the general histnry of all th
schools for the deaf and blind in tht
United States and Canada and Mexict
is append(ed to the report,.
TIhe institution was established at iti
present location in 1849 by Rev. Newtoi
Pmnckeny W alker and it opened with
class of five children
The school was changed from an indi
vidual enterprise to aState institut,om
in 1857, when the Legislature made at
appropriation for the erect,ion of sulita
ble buildings.
The school was closed in 1865 an<
reopened in Oc'.ober, 1866, but wt
soon closed again on account of the un
.sett,ler conitiion of the State's finances
Itn 1869 it was opened again, with J. M
H ughsoni, a graduate of the institu ion
as sup)ermnterndent. In 1872 he resigned,
and the present superintendent, N. F
Walker,a son of ti-e founder, whose
(death occourred in 1867,was appointed.
In that year a building was fitted uf
for the colored pupils, and the Radica]
Board of Commissioners attempted tc
force social equality in the school, by
issmini the following order to the auper
"First. Colored pupili; must, not only
be admitted int,o the institution on appli.
cation, but an earnest and faithful ef
for it must.be made to induce such pu
l)ils to apply for admission.
"Second. Such pupils when admit,ted
must be domiciled in the same building,
must eat at t,he same table, and be
taught in the same class rooms and by
the same teacher, and must receive the
same attention, care and consideration
as white pupils."
On the reception of the above order
the sut.serintendent and all other officers
sent in their resi.<n'tlons.
An effort was made to secure superin
tendent and teachers who would be gov
erned by these instructions, but it failed,
and the school was closed from Septem
ber, 1873, to September, 1816, when it
was reopened.
The departmwent for colored pupils was
opened in 883.

Leaped to Death.
BALTIMORE, Md., Nov. 17.-A most
sensat.ional suicide was committed inl
the North western section of the city
this morning. While North Eutaw
street was thronged with early risers, a
scene at the fourth story win,

St. Mary's and Madison avenue, at
tracted the attention of the passers by.
An entirely nude man was cro uching on
the window sill preparing to jump. A
moment later he plunged headlong to
the ground. The man was Senor Carlos
])iez Gomez De Cadilz, the Consul of the
Kingdom of Spain at Baltimore. The
body struck tne earth with terrillc f orce.
The skull was crushed and death was
instantaneous. There is no doubt that
Diaz committed the deed while in a fit
of Insanity. Dlaz had been the i-anish
Consul at Baltimore for two ye .s. Hle
was 46 years old. IIe came from a dis
tinguished Spanish family, and had
been in the consular service of his na
tive country twenty.-two years. For
twenty years he was stationed at Tunis,
Aigeirs. Many decoratioes were be
stowed upon him by the Sp'ish and
Portuguese governments andi the [Bey
of Tunis. Senor Draz married an Enig
lish woman. She with her two children
were asleep In an adjoining room when
the Consul leaped to dleath.

A hily Reception AwaItP the uaWail
an R,e presentative.
WASINGTON, Nov. 22 -It was
clearly apparent this morning that the
vublication of Minister Thurston's re
ply to Commissioner Blount's report
created a very disagreeable impression
at the Department of State. None of
the officials care to discuss the matter
with it view to publication of their
views, but privately it is intimated
that the Minister has taken an extra
ordinary course, that he has violated
all the proprieties of diplomatic inter
course, and that in any other country
than the United States he would be
immediately furnished with his pass
ports, which is the diplomatic method
of intimating to a minister that lie is
persona non grata and had better take
his departure.
But Mr. Thurston has made it dilli
cult for such a course to be pursued, by
very shrewdly disclaiming in the be
ginning of his article any intention of
publishing an opinion on the interna
tional questions at issue, and declaring
that lie proposed confining himself to a
st,tement of facts concerning himself
in reply to Mr. Blount's personal at
tacks upon him. Although the minis.
ter under this cover, manages to dis
cuss and traverse nearly every sub
stant,ial statement made by Blount;
his disclaimer obscures very much any
violation by him of diplomatic propri
eties-if, indeed, his statement can be
so regarded-and would make it ditil
cult for the Department of State to dtal
with him, as it might other w.ise be di3
posed to do.
But, as a matter of fact, th,- impres
sion is that the Department t'"s nto in.
