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.

Detective Mc Ver and Clerk Fennewlll Go
to 1'hlladelpbla In Search of It-Odds
Bet on the Choice,
Siala Detective McVey and H. L«e
Fennewlll, the suave olrrk of Hotel Jen
niugs, went to Philadelphia to day on a
BBTet mission. The Delaware Hawk
a'iaw was at mam as an oyster as to tbs
iriand and Lae played second bivalve to
Barney.
It was learned, however, that their
errand was to endeavor to identify
locate, a certain deilzin of the city of
P«nn, who, some four weeks ago, mis
took a hand kero ilsf containing a large
and sparkling diamond belonging to a
feminine member of a traveling com
pauy for the nonce located at the hotel
for his own. The actress missed the
sparkler soon after removing It to wash
her hauda and when she went to look
for It It was gone. The case was not
rtported to the polio« however.
Another minor is that Barney and Lee
have simply gone to Philadelphia
witness a grflne of bell, and that the
diamond they are looking for will be that
on which the game Is played.
