Citizens of Bramblcton Ward com? plain of a lack of school facilities. One citizen, of that pacific section, speak? ing to a reporter for the Virginian Pilot, said that bis child, after spend? ing three days ut school last week, was sent home with the statement that there is no room for her. On Inquiry, bo learned that 130 more children titan can he accommodated, have applied for places in the two schools, Nos. 1 nnd 2. He said, also, that the overflow Is In the primary grades. The rooms for the more advanced pupils are not all full. Mr. R. A. Doble, .superintendent, practically confirmed these statements. Ho said, In substance, that the School Board will meet on Tuesday at 1 o'clock in the afternoon. Tho Important subject at thnt meet in" will be the election of four colored teachers for the Queen street school. That is the school recent'- allowed to the use of tho colored children on the petition of tho preachers and other prominent colored citizens. The School Hoard endorsed the peti? tion of the colored citizens, and the City Councils appropriated ?l.smi to pay the expenses of the school. Then there will be an election of n teacher tor the Holl street school, in place of Mrs. William Core, resigned, and several substitute teachers. Brnmbleton school. No. l, which was opened last week, with a seating capa . Ity of -mo pupils, enrolled 490 pupils and turned away 75 applicants. That makes 665 pupils for a normal capacity of -100. Tho excess of pupils nt school No. 2 In 00. in the whole city there are 74 teach? ers for an enrollmeent of -1.000 pupils. That. Mr. Doble says, represents more than an average for that number of teachers. More seals nnd additional facilities art; needed in Bramblcton Ward, so on,e Of the citizens of the ward says: "if the Local Board of Improvement will recommend the appropriation of tho money to employ an additional teacher and open another school room, the overflow can he provided for, and the children of the ward can have the advantages that the city and the State are bound to give them. Missionary Services at St- Paul's Tho Rt. Rev. S. C. Partridge. D. D.. will deliver an address on "Missions In China and Japan" at St. Paul's Church this (Tuesday evening) at S o'clock. The service will be under tho auspices Of the local Council of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew and tho Woman's Auxiliary to the Board of .\i Issums. Bishop Partridge was connected with the mission in China, at Wu Chang, for sixteen years; ho is thoroughly ac qualnted with the conditions in that strange land. In the last year Bishop Partridge was made Bishop of the ju? risdiction of KyatO, in Japan, to which Held lie expects in a few weeks to re? turn. During his stay in Tokia, Bishop Partridge resided in the bouse with the Rev. H. St. George Tucker.
