DFOIDIS THE 0 HABQE 8 HOT TEUB And Dismisses Them— And Now an Apol cuils Demanded—The Couneel for the Tuaehers Allowed a Fee—What Will the Outcome Be. The report of the committee of school No. 24, which has bad in charge the investigation of the charges made by Judge J. Frank Ball against Mis* Bailie A. Miller, principal, and Misses Annie Speaktuau and Mary C. Steele, teachers of that school, of maltreating hia 11 years old daughter, Ethel. was handed In at the meeting of the Board of Pnblio Education last evening and It exonerates the teachers and pays their counsel $100 each. Judge Ball was abient from the olty but ex-Mayor Austin Harrington and Willard Hall Porter were there to explain why be wee not In attendance should his absence be remarked. The reportjwae as follows: Report of the Committee, "Your committee on No. 24 school, to whrm was referred the communication of Judge J. Frank and Mrs Ida M. Ball, che ging certain acts of violence and brutality against Mlsj Halite A Miller, Ml s Annie -Sparkman and Miss Mary 0. Steele, teachers in said school, beg leave to lubmtt the following report; "We have secured the testimony of all penions who were supposed to have wit nessed the assault as charged, the most of it being under oath, and after carefal examination and consideration we are unanimously of the opinion that the charges are unfounded; and that the charge as made by Mrs. Ball, viz: 'That the only protection a child has at No. 24 school Is that either her father or nnole or some other relation should be in the Board of Education, and that this tact alone entitles a child to son.s show of justice—your committee has investigated the 'charge, as well as the others, and have nndoubtdily eviasnoe in support of the same. In fact, the person making the charge declined to offer any evidence in Its support. Miss Miller, principal of No. 24, however, swears that there la no truth wh riever in the charge. We respectfully ask that the board take such act on as may be necessary to ascertain the (rnth or falseness of this charge.'' ii • Chairman Morrow's Bemerke. L. B Morrow, chairman of the com mit tee, spske at considerable length on tbe charges and the Investigation. He said, among other things, that tbe evi dence was so conflicting as to raise a doubt as to whether any violence had been committed. To his mind an outrage bag been committed against these three teachers, their character has bean assailed, and falsely, too, and publicly proclaimed all over the country. He added that there teachers have "a perfect right to demand a public apology from tbe party making these charges, and I shall insist that the apology be given as much publicity as were tbe charges, particularly so, Mr President, when we consider that one of tbe parties making these charges was herself once a Eoboolteaoher, in our pnblr schools, and we i knew of all the little petty trials and annoyances',to wh!cb|a teacher issnb j-c'-.d, and should have been the first perron to have inalstvd on maintaining the discipline of tho school " Mr. Barnard Hays a Few Words S-imnel H. Btynard doubted whether tbe report sufficiently vindicated tbe teachers, said he: ' The serious nature of the charges has not only had a bad effect on the three teachers, but also the teachers of all tbe schools. Tbe other charge as made by Mrs. Ball easts a rs fled ion on the whole board. "Mr. Baynard asked that the board take soma action that woqld appeal to tbe oitlzansof Wilmington aud show them exactly bow the case stands F ./-Mayor Mbortlidge thought an apology or retraction was das the board as well as tbe teachers He moved that farther consideration of thU matter be deferred for two weeks In order to give Julge and Mrs Ball a chance to apologize or take other action Counsel Will Be Paid. The report of the committee was adopted by nnauimons vote and cn motion of Mr. Btynard $100 was drawn In favor of S. Radmond Smith and Peter L Cooper, Jr., for defending the teach ers daring tbe invrstlgation and also defend them in case of farther prose cation. Mr Morrow said that as the methods of the board and teachers bad bten assailed by Mrs Ball, he would ask the members of the entire board to look into the management of No 24 school Miss Ball has been suspended from 34 school by Mr. Morrow pending the final action of the board, As Judge Ball is atte ding hia class exercises at Princeton college aud will «not bo at home nntll tomorrow, his eonrse in the future cannot be stated It is rumored that be will lay the matter before the Society for tbe Prevention of Crnulty to Children and the matter will be further ventilated, *ln court It is also remind that In case Mrs Ball refuses to apologia«, she may be preceded against for criminal libel. to Funeral of Mrs. M< Kay The funeral of Mrs. Mary Stuart McKay, wife of Dr. Read J.
