dent's lt?-port?Election of Itcctom
and Tenctirri,
The July meeting of the Board of
School Trustees was held at U a. m.
yesterday, with the president, Mr. John
B. Whitchead, presiding, and every
im mbor of the board present.
In the matter of exchanging an unoc?
cupied lot near the city stables with
Mr. Nottingham, the following resolu?
tion, offered by Mr. Randolph, was
adopted:
Resolved. That this board approves
the proposition to dispose of the lot
in the Fourth Ward, and that the mat?
ter be referred to the Committee 'on
Buildings for action.
TEACHERS AND BOOKS.
The Committee on Teachers and Text
Books presented the following report,
which was received and tiled and then
taken up for udoptlon by sections.
To the School Board of the City of Nor?
folk:
Your Committee on Teachers nnd
Text Rooks reports as follows:
1. It recommends that only the three
new buildings and the Fourth Ward
school bo opened, that In its Judgment
(be Queen street school ami tin* Bank
street primary will not be needed. The
enrollment for schools In the four old
wards Cor the past session was for the
Fourth Ward 255 and for all others
S40. So the accommodations afforded
by the three new schools of 1,200 and by
tho Fourth Ward school of about 3ii0
will be ample for tho probable Increase.
2. Wc recommend that the Boush
street school bo for girls, the Char
lottee street school for boys, nnd tho
Fcnchurch street school for boys nnd
girls, nnd Fourth Ward school for boys
and girls.
3. Wc find that In addition to the
present number of teachers employed
live- new female teachers will be re?
quired to till the above rooms if a fe?
male rector Is retained In the Boush
street school, and four female teachers
and one male rector If a male vector is
placed in charge of the Boush street
school.
4. Unless the board Intends to take
up the whole matter of revision of sal?
aries, wo suggest that same salaries
as at present attach to the same grades
for next session.
5. We suggest that there be only ns
many substitutes as there are schools
in operation In the city, nnd they be
elected only after reference lo the Com?
mittee on Text Books and Teachers,
and that one be assigned to each school
by the superintendent ajid said com?
mittee.
6. We suggest that our prospectus,
and the rules and organization, <fec. be
referred to a committee for thorough
revision, who will report to tho board
when their work Is finished.
7. The rules require that all charges
affecting the Illness, qualification and
competency of teachers shall be receiv?
ed and considered by your committee,
who shall report to the board. We re?
port that there are no such charges
against any of the old teachers suili
clent to cause us to withhold our
recommendation of their fitness, but
the committee and the superintendent
may at any time make transfers or as?
signments In the interest of the schools.
The resolutions after their adoption
by sections, were adopted as a whole.
SUP E RI NT IS N1) E NT'S RE P 0 P.T.
Superintendent Doble read his report
for June, which showed th* average
daily attendance to be 2.lS"i pupils. The
report was received and Bled.
ELECTION OF TEACHERS.
When the question of going Into the
election of teachers was taken up -Mr.
Flveaah asked for the reading of the
Itet of old teachers as well as the
grades of the certificates they bold.
He made the point that the ?superin?
tendent Is not authorized to extend sec?
ond and thirei grade certificates as he
has been doing. His rern.irks provoked
considerable discussion of the matter,
and tho record was finally read.
A motion wa?a offered by Mr, East
that the election of teachers be post?
poned until the State examination is
held, and that a committee of three
he constituted by the chair to examine
and report upon the qualifications of
all tho teachers as shown by the re?
cords.
This motion provoked a lengthy nnd
warm discussion, and the original mo?
tion was amended by Mr. Eaat, post?
poning the election un:il next week,
hut the amendment was) tabled by a
vote of four to ten.
The motion to postpone until after
tho State examination was lost by a
similar vote.
A motion of Mr. Davis that the ac?
tion of tho board at its meeting last
month with reference to the election of
male rectors for the new schools be
rescinded so far no it applied to the
Boush street school, was defeated,
RECTORS CHOSEN.
The board next went into an elec?
tion of teachers with the following re
-nlt: Richard L Doble, J. P. Dritt. J.
i.. Boush, and Winston Parrlsh, rectors.
Mr. East pieced in nomination against
Mr. Parrlsh Messrs. Peters ami Kil
lincer, but the former was elected by
i vote of 11 to 3 f >.- Mr. Peters,
RE-ELECTED.
All of the old teachers of the pri?
mary grades were then re-elected in a
body, with the exception of Miss Bon
icy, who did not desire a re-election.
On Mr. East's motion the board re?
commended to the Text-Book Commit?
tee that Miss Southall be promoted to
the position now occupied by Miss Bon
ncy.
When the board proceeded to the
election of four new teachers for the
tame grades all of the substitutes'
names were placed in nomination, as
,\e'.'. an that of Mis" Annie C. Cray, n
recent graduate of the High School.
Messrs. PampUn and Davis were ap?
pointed tellers. The first ballot resulted
as follows:
Mies Cray, 10: Miss Rain, 5; Miss
' *.iie, It; Mr?. Mlnilrce, 11; Miss Old,
10: Miss Ashley, 3; M.ss Worsham, 3;
Miss Kelly, 1: Mrs. Clay. 1.
The successful contestants were Miss
Cole. Mrs. Mlnltree. Miss Old and Miss
Gray.
AU of tho old. teachers of tho High
School were re-elected In a batch, after
which Chairman Whltehead read a let
tor from Miss Tilley, asking a twelve
months' leave of absence to study In
Europe, which was unanimously
granted, and Miss Lois V. Corprew,
substitute teacher for the High School
last year, was elected without opposi?
tion to till tho vacancy.
ATLANTIC CITY AND BRAMBLE
TON.
The teachers In Atlantic City and
Brambleton Wards were re-elected.
At the conclusion of this last Item
of business the board adjourned to
Tuesday, the 23th Instant, at 11 a. m.
THE MOB JACK ARRIVES.
THE O. D.'S NEW PALACE SIDE
W HEELER.
Yesterday morning at 7:15 o'clock the
now steamer Mobjaek of the Old Do?
minion Line river and bay licet \ assed
in the Capes from New York, nnd about
thiee hours later tie.l up at the Old
Dominion wharves. She was on her
maiden trip and fresh from the hands
of her builders, the W. & A. Fletcher
Company, of Hoboken, N. J.
She was commanded by Captain
Thus. W. Sottthgale, and manned by a
very competent crew, as is readily seen
when It la realized that her actual run?
ning time from Now York to Norfolk
was about twenty hours, or about as
good time ns many of the crack screw
coasters make. She Is a side-wheeler
and a beautiful boat, painted while out?
side and finished In her Interior passen?
ger apartments In white and gold In
general outline she has sura? likeness
to the old Northampton, which was
burned, and the place of which she will
IUI, a fact that will not hurt her with
tho traveling public of this section,
with whom the cremated boat was a
prime favorite.
The Mobjack's saloons and deck room
are even more capacious, und her gen?
eral arrangement better than was the
Northampton's. She is licensed to car?
ry 1,000 people. The steamer Is ISO feet
long. 2X feet beam, and draws about 6Vi
feet of water. Sho has a condensing
engine with a "12-inch cylinder, 9 foot
stroke, and a steel boller 26ft foot long
and 112 inches In diameter. On her
trial trip she made sixteen miles an
hour natural draught, and eighteen
miles forced draught. She Is expected
to make tho run between Norfolk nnd
Ohl Tolnt in thirty-five or forty min?
utes.
The saloons have side scats uphol?
stered In olive hued plush and very
comfortable. The main saloon Is spe?
cially attractive. Tho lighting arrange?
ments are thoroughly modern and will
at night make her brilliant as daylight.
Every convenience for comfort in tho
way of toilet nnd ladles' cabins, etc.,
have been furnished, and not tho least
in point of attractiveness is tho dining
saloon on tho main deck, which has
a kitchen In the rear. A large number
can be accommodated at tho tables, and
a tempting menu will bo served daily
during her regular runs.
The Mobjaek has large freight capac?
ity and will at once go on her regular
route to Mathews and Gloucester, re?
tiring the Accomac.
