New York, November 1.?The Peu body education fund board will not be dissolved nor the remaining fuhds distributed for another yeur at least This was decided at a meeting of tin board of trusties held here to-day. At last ycar'a meeting It was Inti? mated that the present year might be the last In the board's history, but the unanimous decision to-day was t-i wall at least another twelve months before disbanding. The Peabody tund of $3.500,000 was donated by George Peabody to pro? mote education In the South. Samuel A. Green, secretary for the board, In a statement made after tbe meeting alluded to tbe action taken and to the present status of the fund. 'Tu ISO? we could have distributed the principal, according to the orig? inal understanding, and wishes of Mr. Peabody," he said. "We lit that time decided that it was hardly advisable. In the best Interests of the fund, to draw on the principal, and so re? frained from so doing. Lust year we donated $1,000,001) to the establishment of tho 'George Peabody College foi Teachers,' at Nashville. Tenn.. thus diminishing our fund to Just $1.500, 000. "It is quite likely?I might suy rtultc probable?that we will next year de? cide to disband, nnd then give away tho whole fund. We will then dis? tribute thi- money among eleven of the remaining Southern States. Tennes? see has already- received the lion's Share, and | doubt If any more will be allotted within that State."

FOUR WARuS WILL Bti GIVEN NAMES Proposed Numbers Are Elimi? nated?Administrative Board to Be Given Power to Appoint Most City Officers?Plan Result of Long Study. Having' completed Its draft of pro? posed changes In the charter of the city to provide for the employment ol an administrative board to take ovet all executive, duties now performed by fourteen standing committees of the City Council, the Special Committee on Changes In the Form of Government yesterday uftornoou recommended to the City Council for adoption a re? vised draft of sections !6 to 30 and 62 to 04 of the charter, In addition to an ordinance for the redlslrlcting of the city Into four wards already re? commended. The redlstrlctlng ordinance hereto fore printed in full, was reconsider? ed and the names of the. four proposed wards reinserted In lieu of numbers In order to meat objections of members of the Fire and Police Hoards. Tho wards will be known as Jefferson Madison. Clay and Ue. having approx? imately equal population, und each with a proportion of fully developed und of outlying territory. Tho plan cuts the Common Council to twenty members, the Board of Aldurmcn tu twelve, the Board of Police Commis? sioners to live und the Board of Fire Commissioners to four members, the cut in the two latter bourdB being in? cidental to the plan for reducing tlu Council by a redlstrlctlng of the city, the charter requiring live Councllmen and three Aldermen from ench ward. What |M IT,.purled. Tlitt plun for an administrative board provides that live members shall be elected by the vote ot the people from the city at large, their salaries to be not less than $4,000 a year each, the members to devote their entire time to the city. They are to take over all of the functions now performed by 14 Joint standing commtttecB or the City Council, Including the committees on Streets. Water, Light, Electricity Cemeteries, Markets. Belief of the Poor, Improvement of James River and others of lesser Importance. While admitting that It was anomal? ous to continue the Boards of Fire and Police Commissioners, made up as they are of members elected by the Council by wards and serving without pay, yet It was tacitly admitted that thou* boards were too strongly entrenclie? politically to be tampered with at thli time. If the administrative board plan works as It Is hoped It will, tho con? trol of the Fire and Police Depart? ments can be later transferred to It by legislative enactment, without hamper? ing or endangering those very Import? ant! emergency departments while the experiment Is being made. i a i m i on ml I in Mil If. The plan recommended calls for a Council of twenty members and a Bourd of Aldermen of twelve, the hold? over members to continue In office un | til the end of their terms. The Coun? cil retains all the legislative functions, the right to levy taxes, tpake appro? priations. Issue bonds, enuct ordin? ances and impose penalties. To the board is transferred the power to ap? point city ?fltcor? and employes, to supervise their work, to audit accounts, award contracts, and generally to have charge und supervision of streets alleys. parks. cemeteries, markets, sewers and all such city utilities as the gas. water and electric works. Appropriations made by the Council In lump sum in the annual budget a! the city's revenues and tlnunclal con? dition may Justify, are to be expended by the administrative board as U may deem best, thus eliminating the wuro lltos which have for years hampered and rendered ineffective the work of the Street Committee, and making it possible to can;,- on systematically, general |>?l lie improvements for tho benefit ol the whole city.
