ASKED TO- SE RELEASED. Declared that he had Been Offered $2,500 in Another City and Would Irke to Accept? Board of Education Refuse to Release Him, but it is Probable They will Make Good the Difference in Salary? Mr. Shull's Work is Appreciated and Board Wants Him Here. I ? Superintendent Shull has asked to he relieved of his position as head of the public schools in this city, and the Board of Education, after doe consideration, has refused to release him. Mr. Shull gives as his reason that he has had a.better offer in an other place, but declared he could not j tell where unless released. The announcement came as a com plete surprise to the members of the board as well as everyone else and the matter was as quiokly settled as it wan brought to the attention of the board. Mr. Shall said the had been offered |2,500 a year. Where, he J would not mention at this time un less the board deoided to release him, as l he people who had made the offer, did not want it announced unless he ! was released. The offer is $700 more i than he ia at present reoeiving. Mr. r Shall, at the conclusion of his re quest, stated that should they decide | unfavorably he was willing to con tinue his work as oheerfully as before | and there would be no hard feelings. lu giving their decision Commis sioner Poulsen spoke for the board. He said that inasmuch as Mr. Shull had come here and taken our schools in hand when they were in a very bad shape and as he had accomplished such good results under adverse cir cumstances the board could not, with I justice to themselves, let such a good man go. Under an agreement with the hoard Mr. Shull still has nearly four years | to serve. It is believed, however, that he oould not be oompelled to i serve under these circumstanoes. It is thought quite probable that owing to the faot that other cities with few er schools pay their superintendent |2 500, and owing to the generous way iu which Mr. Shull has treated the board in the matter, that an increase in his salary will be the outoome. It is agreed bv every one conoerned that Mr. Shull's services are worth more than the city can ever afford to pav him, and owing to the tact that the boaid has refused to release him, it is said by some that it is no more than right for the board to show their I appreciation by advancing his salary.

Freeholders Met Yesterday and Transacted Much Business for the County? Wood bridge Creek Bridge Muddle? Wood bridge Township Citizens Inquires About | Land on Sound Road. Sheriff Carman stood on his dignity yesterday when he appeared at the meeting of the Board of Freeholders. He expressed his opinion of the county jail freely and termed it an old box. He declared that of the seventeen cells in the jail only one can be locked. He said there is immediate need of two new iron barred doors at the oorridors and al?o a solid iron door to be placed before the cook hoose. To keep the prisoners in jail these doors aie absolutely necessary. Only a few days ago a prisoner had managed to escape because of the absence of these doors, bnt he had been caught later. Other improvements should be made, too, bnt he did not care to nrge them, because he thought with others that any repairs made on the old box of a jail meant so mtkjh money thrown awav. A new iron roof ought to be furnished. Until something is done he did not feel safe in the building. On motion of Mr. Oox, the Jail Committee was directed to act at once to have the iron doors purchased and the locks and hinges secured. M. Arrowsmith, who has occupied property in Woodbridge . township since 1846, on the Blair Star Landing road, leading to Staten Island sound, wrote to the board asking it to deter mine his rights to the land he occu pies.

The matter was re ferred to Mr. Dnnnigan and the So licitor. A resolution was introduced that the salary of the South River bridge tender be increased $10 a month, to be paid by the Traction Company. The trolley company has placed extra work upon the tender. As the Traction Company had not agreed to this the matter, upon advice of Solicitor Willis, was referred to the committee with power. Freeholder O'Neill reported that repairs are needed to the iron work on the draw of the, Albany street bridge. The committee received power to have specifications drawn for the repairs and to advertise for bids. Mr. O'Neill asked to have a night watchman placed on the bridge to proteot people from hold-ups at night. No action was taken. Some of the members thought that] the city or bridgetenders should pre sarve order on the bridge. Messrs. Dunnigan, Draper and Man ning were authorized to build a $400 bridge on Middlesex avenue near Colon ia, and a bridge at Raritan Lake, Woodbridge township.

Allgair, Rusher and Johan sen were authorized to look after a culvert at the Quaid property at Sayre ville. Messrs. Fountain, Welsh, Manning and Vandenbergh were named a com mittee to build a 40-foot iron bridge at Deep Run, Madison township, to cost about |700 and a 45-foot wooden bridge on the South Amboy road, Madison township at a cost of about #300.
