Two Jeremiahs ol the Board Bemoan the Fact
of An Empty Treasury—An Appeal to
the Board of Supervisors An.-nt
the Annexed Territory
The proceedings of the board of edu
cation were relieved last evening by a
vein of facetlousness that broke the
monotony of routine.
In the galleries, too, many teachers
and their friends had gathered to hear
the list of appointments reatl and ho
learn a few hours earlier what good the
scholastic gotls had sent thorn.
In tho absence of President Hale, the
business of the session was presided
over by Director William M. Garland.
The first business taken up was the
consideration of a communication re
garding the new Macy-street school.
The schoolhouse having been by some
oversight built with twelve feet project
ing on to nn alleyway, which is a public
thoroughfare, something had to be dona
Director Fulton, while objecting to liti
gation, explained tbat the contractor
protested that in erect in.!," the building
he had followed the plans of the city
engineer anel so must be held guiltless.
The director urged that some one
must be In fault, and wherever the fault
lay, lt ought to be punished. He there
fore moved that the matter be referred
to the building committee for investiga
tion, it to report back at the next regu
lar meeting.
A letter was read from the trustors of
tiv Vernon school district, inviting a
committee nt the board to meet with
thorn for the purpose of making settle
ment of the property of the district.
A sharp discussion ensued. Director
Fulton believed that the request of the
Vernon trustees was reasonable. The
city in Incorporating new territory had
cut the Vernon school district In two,
the portion of the district across the
railroad track not being taken in. The
school district, however, remains Intact,
and, Director Fulton argued, the mat
ter might in conference be settled ami
cably ami without any friction. Direc
tor Grubb thought otherwise. He was
not prepared to give a committee un
llmtted powers to settle the matter of
division. He believed that an Investi
gation would reveal the fact that the
courts had already adjudicated upon the
matter ami decided that the school
house and land belong to the city. Sus
picion also haunted the mind of the di
rector because, when the city superin
tendent went to the Vernon trustees
they then scorned any peaceful settle
ment and demanded everything in and
out ot sight. Director Grubb moved
hat the matter be referred to tho build
ing committee for Investigation, and It
was so ordered.
Secretary Dandy read the following
report of the linance committee, recom
mending that the various accounts,with
the department salaries for the current'
month, be paid:

The bonne bouche of the session came
Up when Secretary Dandy read the re
port of the teachers' committee The
necks of the gallery gods and goddesses
were craned In listening to the long list
or names read off. Doubtless many wh t
thought their names would be called
were disappointed, and others who
scarcely hoped for promotion found that
an additional honor had been thrust up
on ttiom.

Some mild spatting took place when
the majority and minority reports of
the high school committee, Which in
cluded * letter from Principal W. H.
Housh, came up for consideration.
The committee recommended that the
text books of last year be retained, and
that Williams and Roberts commercial
law, anil Williams anel Rogers seventy
lessons in spelling, be adopted. The
principal's recommendations, adopted
as their own by the committee, were
to the effect that class organizations
and class colors below those' of the sen
ior year be discontinued; that for one
year at least no paper be published ba
ttle school; that permissions to hold
meetings in the building be wltheld
from all clubs and associations; that
debates be made an essential feature
of the Star and Crescent meetings;
that no paper, club or society, social or
otherwise, be allowed to use the name
of the high school.
These recommendations are calcu
lated to make the soul of the average
high school boy very tired, but are cal
culated, all the same, to keep in modest
subjection those exuberant ones who
after having been feel on a ginger diet
thought it Incumbent £o nail up a llag,
ruffle the fethers of a wooden eagle and
make themselves ridiculous while bring
ing the school into disrepute.
Outsitie clubs have been posing as
high school affairs, anel even one danc
ing club tleigned itself, or
some of the light, fantastic toes of the
school tlid it instead, as a high school
club. The limitations of the school pa
per, too, were too narrow for the asper
ations of tbe literary minds hidden
away behind the high school brick and
mortar, and other papers sprang into
All this meant demoralization, and
that Interest and loyalty to the BClfiol
by the students essential for the best
work and the best results. So much
for the majority report.
The minority report was submitted
by Director S. B. Fulton, and in a small
way it was a brain disturber for the
"unco quid" to whom anything socialis
tic is as the red Hag to an irate bull. Not
being understood it is of the devil.
Director Fulton urged that In lieu of
Laughlin's Political Economy a switch
off should be taken to Lawrence Gron
lund's Co-operative Commonwealth as
a text book. He contended also that the
board do not sit down, metaphorically,of
course, on the debating society of the
high school.
The author of this report, while speak
ing in its support, made light of Laugh
lln's Political Economy. False in its
deductions, ho considered it antiquated
and far behind the time. In all the
schools and seats of learning in the
United States, he knew only of the Chi
cago university where it was in use.
He might have added that, possibly
because of its antiquarian tendencies,
it might have special value In the Chi
cago university, and also that Gron
lund's Co-operative Commonwealth is
used as a text book both at Harvard and
But he didn't.
Dr. Wills said he knew more about
medical works than those on political
economy, and as the matter lay between
Professor Housh and Director Fulton,
he would be guided by the principal, as
he thought he had a better opportunity
for passing upon the merits of the
speetlve books.
The board thought so too. and adopted
the majority report and threw the mi
nority one out by a vote of seven ayes
to one no.
The Intellectual strain caused by a
discussion on political questions had not
time to subside befoe another "bone of
contention" made its appearance. The
committee to whom was referred the
matter of furnishing help to the super
intendent recommended that Emma R
Neidlg be employed at a salary of $100
per month. In her dual capacity she
is to act as superintendent's clerk and
perform such other duties in the kinder
garten and primary department as he
may direct.
The committee further recommended
that the superintendent's office be re
moved to the Olive-street school build
Director Grubb was on his feet de
manding a division of the report on the
two questions before the last word of
the report had let go Its hold on Sec
retary Dandy's Hps. It was so ordered
and then Ml 3. Neldlg's ears must have
burned. President Garland wanted to
know something about the lady's spe
cial qualifications for that $100, and re
quested Director Kennedy, chairman of
the committee, to Illumine the darkness
of his undi ratandlng.
Director Kennedy spoke "much Inn
gunge," all of which simply amounted
io the fact that he thought she was most
lit for the position and came well rec
President Garland thought that as
there are teachers In the city who have
been doing kindergarten work for twelve
or fourteen yeas, it seemed to him but
fair to allow someone at home to gobble
the respectaftle r#m of )100 each month.
A kind of protection to horns Industry,
as it were. He thought the position of
kindergarten directress a most import
ant one; he realized that the nominee
was an educated woman, and an edu
cator, but he thought she had not had
experience enough to supervise the
Superintendent Foshay, by request,
stilted that tho work required would be
divided. Clerical work in his office would
occupy half of her time, and the other
half would be given over to primary and
kindergarten work. He thought, us the
kindergartens dose at noon, Mrs. Ncl
dlg could do great work In that branch.
Judging from her letters she had done
pXC llent primary work, and in his opin
ion one skilled in that and kindergarten
work could breach the chasm that had
existed between the two.
on a vote tho appointment carried
and Mrs. Middle gets the place.
The reason for desiring to remove the
board room and superintendent's office
from the city hall ls on the score of In
sufficient room for the transaction of
business and also that the library being
likewise pressed for room stands ready
to move In as soon as the board moves out
The Olive street building was erected
with the idea that the oiliees should be
removed there at a later date, and there
Is ample and convenient accommoda
tions. It was argued also that being
moved from the bustle of the city and
pedi strians having to climb a hill, it
would be so situated that people without
urgent business would not visit the
Office at present, and if they did they
WOUld be too much out of breath to talk.
Director Fulton mildly suggested
Catallna. Director Kennedy favored
tbe Spring street school as being easy
of access.
The vote for the Olive street site car
ried by 5 to ::.
Oh the motion to instruct the building
committee to have the Olive stnet
offices fitted up for occupancy by the be
ginning of the school year the clouds
opened and the rain fell—of words.
Director Grubb said there was no
money. Dr. Wills reminded him that a
short time ago in the financial report
he had reported a brilliant financial out
Director Grubb acknowledged it, but
since then the bottom had fallen out of
the treasury box. There was only $200
in the treasury and they couldn't settle
outstanding debts. The banks wouldn't
help them for they were hedging on the
possibility of a panic when gold took
unto itself wings. Director Simonton
also uttered a plaintive cry of no funds.
Neither Garland nor Kennedy thought
lt wise to imitate the Knight of the Doles
ful Countenance. Such considerations
were not taken up when, just before,
an appointemnt of a position worth $100
per month was made, and when $2300
was voted no one raised up and regis
tered any kick.
The president read off the following
financial statement, which somewhat
relieved the fears of those present that
a financial cataclysm \*us about to over
whelm the school board: In the county
fund. $280; in the state fund, $60,000; city
fund overdrawn, $2600; should have from
city September 1, $5000 from personal
property tax; also expect $20,000 in city
fund by October 20 from taxes; by De
cember 28, $80,000 from county fund, and
expect $50,000 more from the city by
January 1, 1897.
That settled it; the vote carried by 5
to 3.
The following resolution was offered
by Director P4tman:
Resolved, That the secretary of the
board of education be Instructed to rep
resent to the board of supervisors the
fact that a large amount of territory
has recently been added to the city for
school purposes, both by annexation and
by action of the board of supervisors
and that said territory was annexed too
late for a levy by the city council for
school purposes, and that the board of
supervisors be requested to levy on said
assessed value the amount allowed the
city schools by the city council being
about 20 cents on the $100.
Director Pitman and Secretary Dandy
were appointed a committee to pre
sent the matter to the board of super
visors. 1
Trouble Over the Lunch Stand Privilege at

stands. Those lots have all been rented
by one man, who has thus secured a
monopoly. Luckie says that he rented
a place across the street, and has been
standing there, and that he has been
subject to various petty annoyances the
last of which has been to build a barbed
wire fence to cut him off. The matte,
will probably be investigated by the

The Fouadlng of the Florence Rescue
The Evanfrelist Will Sp;nk on This Subject
at Simpson Tabernacle
This Afternoon
This afternoon at Simpson tabernacle,
on Hope street, Mr. Charles N. Critten
ton will present the work otthe Florence
Crittenton Rescue homes to the pub
lic, and it is safe to predict from the
thousands who have crowded to hear
this Wonderful man day after day at
Peniel hall that the congregation will
be an immense one.
Tho story of the founding nf the
Florence Crittenton missions ls an in-
I tercsting one. Thirteen years ago Mr.
j Crittenton lost his little girl, Florence, '
and a few months later, in an Upper
room, he found pardon and peace by
believing iv Christ. Soon after his con
version came a longing desire for
Christian activity, anil the message
came to him: "Go out quickly Into the
streets and lanes of the olty and bring
In hither the poor, the maimed, the halt
and the blind." So down Into the slums
of New York city he went, and night
j after night found him trying to uplift
i some poor sister, who had wandered
! from the path of virtue. Une night he
! besought a wretched girl to leave her
; life of shame, saying to her. In the words
jof the Savior: "Neither do 1 condemn
; thee; go and sin no more." The weep- ;
; ing girl answered: "But where can 1
' go?" Mr. Crittenton there realized that
j there was no place for her lo go, that
j there was not a door in all New York
I open to her except the door of sin, and
I he at once decided, as a memorial of his
little Florence, to open a home for oth- 1
er fathers' girls, who were a thousand ,
times more lost to them than if they
were lying out in the cemetery. The
first horn.- to be established was at 21-23 1
Bleecker street. There a beautiful four
story building was purchased and com
fortably furnished, and many a weary,
heart-sick Magdalene has found it a
haven of refuge, has been helped to rise
above the consequences of her mistake,
and has found a future of usefulness
and happiness.
Since the establishment of the home
at Bleecker treet, Mr. Crittenton has
estbllshed thirty-four in different parts
of the I'nited States, and has devoted
his life and his means to their main
tenance. The Florence home in this
city was founded four years ago, when
the Rev. Mr. Stevens, a Presbyterian
minister, felt called upon to donate his
beautiful mansion to the rescue work.
Since it was opened it has been a great
blessing to many a poor girl who has
made one sad mistake and become the
victim of some trusted villian's base de
ception. During the present year forty
nine girls have been received into the
home and all but three have turned out
well and are leading true, virtuous
Mr. Crittenton will make an earnest
appeal to the public for funds to en
large and continue the work of the
home, and doubtless will meet with suc
cess. Every cent donated will go to the
home in Dos Angeles. The evangelist
pays his own expenses and the expenses
of his fellow workers, and besides
turns In thousands of dollars every year
to the rescue fund. His car. Good News,
ls hauled gratuitously over every rail
road of the United States. The Southern
Pacific company, both the Atlantic and
Pacific systems, extend every possible
courtesy to the evangelists, and lend
every possible assistance to the further
ance of the rescue work.
The cards for the Crittenton young
people's service at rcniel hall yester
day announced that the meeting was
for young people between the ages of
l.'i and 35, but it was clearly demonstrated
how useless was any attempt to set a
limit as hundreds on the shady side of
three score and ten crowded their way
Into the hall and hundreds more failed
to get within reach of the speaker's
voice at both the afternoon and evening
meetings. A very interesting song ser
vice opened the service, including a solo,
My Dream, by Mrs. Moffet, and Build
ing for Eternity, by Mr. Frank Wal
Mr. Crittenton took for his text. "Re
member now thy Creator in the days of
thy youth," upon which he delivered
a powerful address.
A great number rose for prayers after
this service and also after the evening
service, and many of them afterward
came forward to the altar.
