I I Lively Discussion Over a Rule Intro duced By Col. Miller, Aiming to Prevent Members from Having Pecuniary Interest in Any Contracts or Dealings of the Board — The Insurance Agents Mak9 a Request—Reports of Em ployes of the Board—Other Mat ters. There, was a fair attendance at the regular monthly meeting of the Board of Education, which was held last night. The committee on accounts submit ted bills aggregating $209.70, which were ordered paid. Bills of $102.74, submitted by the Public Library com mittee, was also ordered paid, and the committee was authorized to pur chase books to the amount of $50.05. Mrs. C. M. Crawford and Miss Nettie Wilde were appointed first and second assistant librarians, at salaries of $45 and $30 a month respectively. Harry Philips was reappointed janitor, at a salary of $40 a month. The report of the committee on finance was read and approved. A communication was read from the Secretary, stating that at a meeting of the principals, it was decided to give a union entertainment on June 23d, pro vided the sanction of the board could be secured. Prof. Anderson took the floor, and stated the objects of the en tertainment. It was proposed to secure the Opera House for three nights, the Union entertainment on Wednesday, public schools Thursday, and Lincoln school Friday. It would not interfere with school work, and would add to the interest in the schools, besides provid ing money to defray the expense of making a proper educational exhibit at. the coming State Fair. Dr. Birney stated that the real object was to get money for the State Fair exhibit, and as he had heard complaints from teach ers concerning the matter, he moved as a substitute that the board appropriate $50 for making a proper exhibit at the State Fair. The substitute was lost, and the request of the Superintendent j granted. The Johnson Electric Service Com pany, of Pittsburg, presented a “dun for the thermostat service introduced at Madison school, which was referred to the committee on buildings and grounds. The communication from the local insurance agents was read, asking that the insurance on school property be distributed among home companies and local agents. A motion to lay on the table was lost. Mr. Stanton moved to refer to the committee on buildings and grounds, with instructions to place insurance to the best advantage. He thought the companies doing busi ness in this city through agents, were entitled to some consideration, as they pay taxes on the business they do in this city. The fact developed dur ing the debate that the board carries policies to the amount of $204,000. It was suggested to give each home com pany $2,500, and divide the remainder among the 65 companies represented ! in this city. Refered to committee. The report of the librarian for the month of April, showed a total circu lation of 4,532, of which number 3,984 were works of fiction; average daily circulation 197; circulation in reading room 1.019; received from fines $5. From the regular monthly report of fiupt. W. H. Anderson, the following abstract is taken: Enrollment for the month. Washington 571, Madison 717, Clay 557, 1'nion 493. Center 462. Web ster 680.

In fife German department, the en rollment for the month was 460: num ber of classes 71; pupils of German parentage 249; not of German parent age 211: paid for instruction $195. Col. Miller called up the resolution, offered at the previous meeting, amending the rules to prevent members of the board from having pecuniary interest in any contract or office under the board. He called attention to the State law' bearing on the question, and pointed out the danger of ring control of the board. He said there are now three members of the board who ha\o dealings with it. and he said there was nothing to prevent other members from becoming special agents for con cerns which desired to contract with the board. He dwelt upon the evil which might result, and stated that in his opinion, the honor and digmf> o the board demanded the adoption of the amendment. If members wanted to transact business with the boaid, thev should resign. Col Miller moved to suspend the rules. In order to take up the new rule sub mitted by him. The motion was adopted. The clerk read the rule submitted by Col Miller, and Mr. Stanton took the floor to make a vigorous attack upon the amendment. He said he regarded It as a direct reflection upon certain » the Board, and it would be so construed by the public. He thought if any charge.-, were to be made against any member, thev should be made openly, and not by insinuation. He argued that the adop tion of the rule would place a temptation upon some persons to practice deception in bidding, etc. He had known instances He argued further, that the effect of the rule would be to prevent any person from being a member of the Board who happened to be a stockholder In a bar.K. an insurance company, etc. Col. Miller said that the rule he offered was copied from the State law of Ohio and is in force generally. He showed that It is also the law of this State Mr. n *bl< opposed the amendment, and Mr. Bowers and Mr. Maxwell favored it The discussion became very heated at times, especially between Mr. Stanton and Col. Miller, but members refrained fiom indulging in personalities. Members who favored the amendment laid stress upon the fact that it is the law of the State. Mr. Stanton did not agree with this statement, end asked why if it were true, the language of the ’constitution was r.ot inserted. Mr. Milligan profptly moved as a substitute for t,0i Miller's amendment, the fol.ow ing. frof Article 12. Section 9. of the Con stitution of West Virginia: -No member shall be interested in the «ale proceeds or profit of any book or thing used, or to be us. d then In. un der such penalties as may be prescribed hv law: provided, that nothing herein shall be construed to apply to any work written, or thing invented, by such per son. Tho ay<*s and noos were called upon the substitute, resulting: ayes 10, r.oes 6. The chair ruled that the substitute was lost, having failed to secure a majority of all the Board. The question recurred upon the rule offered by Col. Miller, as fol lows: "No member of the Board of Education shall have any pecuniary interest, either direct or indirect, in any contract or dealing of the Board, or be employed in any manner for compensation by the Board.” Before a vole was reached, Col. Miller stated that if he could secure consent of the Board, ho would change his vote on the Milligan substitute. The vote was re considered, and the substitute adopted by a vote of 14 to 1. Mr. Maxwell offered ar. amendment to the rules, changing Sunday hours at the library from 10 a. m. to S p. m. Dr. Jepson took the. floor and offered as amendments to the rules, all the changes which were made by the Committee on Rules, which were defeated at the last meeting of the Board. The amendments lie over until the next mooting. The clerk read a communication from the Ohio Valley Trades and Labor As sembly, asking th.at the high school ques tion be referred to a vote of the people. After transacting unimportant routine business, the Board adjourned. The Linsly Class of '97 Made Merry at theMcLure Last Night.

Other Society Matters. The class of '!'7 of the Llnsly Institute held the traditional banquet at the Mc Lure House last night, and crowded as much wholesome merriment into a tew hours as their seniors might in as many weeks.

Mr. Stcenrod gracefully presided as toastmaster, and performed his duties in a pleasing manner. “Linsty” was the theme assigned Mr. Frank, and he han dled it very creditably. Mr. E. I). Hork heimer responded to “Our Class.” a very humorous effort. Mr. C. J. Killinyer’s subject was “Field Day,” and he dis cussed it in a very pleasing way, being several times interrupted by applause. Other toasts were responded to by J. Gil lespy, Bt Horkhelmer, and Messrs. Hork heimer, Otto. Milligan and Werder. After the banquet the hoys assembled in front of the hotel and gave their class yells, after which they serenaded the teachers and were royally treated. • » * Yesterday was observed as ladles’ day at the Carroll Club. There was a large throng of members and their lady friends throughout the evening, and although entirely informal. It was one of the most thoroughly enjoyable social affairs given at the club for some time. A committee of ladles served Ices, cake, coffee and sandwiches throughout the evening. At eight o’clock the guests assembled in the new auditorium, where an exhibition drill was given by the Kr.ights of St. George, under command of Capt. Geo. J. Mathi son. The Knights a few years ago were, on- of the crack military organizations of the Slate, and although drills have not been frequent, their exhibitions last night proved that they are very proficient In military tactics. Every Thursday hereafter will be observed as ladles’ day at the club, and there will be a special feature each week.
