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.
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
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.

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.

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

Mr. O'Neill asked to have a night
