JSHINGTON, D. 0., WEDNESDAY EVENING, MAY 13, 1801.
IMPORTANT M'SINBSS TRANSACT!!!) AT LAST NIGHT'S MEETING. A Clintge ricTcrrcil Tlint Soitonnly Re flect) Upon t lie Method of Selecting Tcnrlictt Numerous Chances lii tlic Personnel of the Corps of Teacher. The regulnr meeting of the board of trustees of the publla schools wns held lit the Franklin IIitlldiiiK. last night. Those present were Messrs. Gregory, Ilnzen, ti'Ditsh, Mitchell, Wltmcr, Whclploy ami Jlrticc, villi President Mitchell in the chair, J A coiniiuinlentlon whs reul Trom Mr. II. J. I.nsier thai attracted considerable interctiiid attention, ns In it ho charges the illegal appointment of teachers. Mr. I.aticr says Unit some lime ngo his daugh ter, M lis Marguerite I.asler, a graditato of tl.eHluh School, lsro. wrote to President Mitchell of tho school board, enclosing n application which sho had made to Superintendent Powell to 1111 a vacancy in the cons of teachers of tho third dlvis lr ii. In her application sho stated that a. the wns informed that there were, no eligible (andiilalcsf.r.. graduates of tlic Normal School or ccrtillcato holders she would respectfully request that 1111 early i ppoitunity Ijo afforded her to take an ex amination for the vacancy or for any other that might occur before tho dosing of the school year. She asked that her application be referred to tho committee on teachers, but Mr. Lasicrsays that she has received no reply to her communica tion, nrr had any examination been ac corded her. On tho contrary, he says, from the best of evidence obtainable, not only that va cancy, but one or more in other divisions have been filled by the board. It is evi denced by tho minutes of the board that all normal graduates of 1S00 were ap pointed at a meeting held September b, and that subsequent meetings of tho board exhausted available candidates and made it teacher's examination necessary In No vember. Niuoeaudidates were successful, and it is presumed all i ere appointed to existing vacancies. This presumption is l)atd noon the fact that tho proceedings before alluded to indicate u largo number of appointments, some of whom, it Is safe to assume, were not qualillcd. And, con tinued Mr. Lasier, It can be shown that several arc to-day tench lug whom, it is believed, preappointed atu special meet ing of the board in direct violation of the rules of the public schools of the District. lie urged upon the board tho necessity of leconsfucring their action, holding a pub lic examination and legally filling all va en nciKi that have occurred since the open ing of the year. Mr. Luster's communi cation wa3 referred to the committee on rules. A resolution introduced by Professor (Ircgory inviting Superintendents Powell and Cook to address the board In tho near future tn tho practical workings of the course of instruction was unanimously adojited.

Eiseiiun Un Keveuth and E. big (mini) of I)riir With n Simple DitUotn lliijsi'oit. It was about len years ogj that I took a trip through the West with n party of Kansas City men, says n writer In the , Turn of that city. Several weeks wcro ! spent In Dakota in the summer of issi, One day the four members of our party were driving along a trail n few iiilics from Yankton, when wo espied a "dugout" oft' to the north of the trail. We decided to alight and havo a chat with the settler, who was seated on the roof of his humble abode, with his feet on the ground. To the uninitiated this would seem strange, but these houses are four-liftlis under ground, and contain nbout ts worth of lumber, two rooms and a thousand centi pedes. rpon the Invitation of Mr. Jones, tho settler, we entered his abode, where ho In troduced us to his wife. Ilrowil, onoof our party suggested right in tho midst of our conversation oh the crons that wo play n game of seven-tip. The schemo met with approval, and we played several games. Jones didn't seem to know much about the game. After awhile another of our parly I'll call him Johnson leaned over to me and sold: "Jim, do you reckon this hays-red could have a dollar or two bout him " It wasn't long before John son asked Mr. Jones If ho ever played poker. Jones ftald: "Wal, gentlemen, I do play now an' then, and wouldn't mind dentin' a few hands o' poker." They be gan playing "penny ante," and tho old man won about a dollar at It. I didn't ploy, but Johnson, who Is now a United States Senator, put up n good gamo gen erally, and did not like to be beaten, even for a dollar. He proposed making n jackpot. It was made. lo ono could open it without a pair of jacks or better. Three deals Were made before any onccould open It. John son llnally saldi "As it was 'progressive,1 he had to have nt least a pair of kings." Ho bet $2 and Jones raised him ?2, lint tlic others dropped out of tho game. S'manlhy, the settler's wife, saw 50 on the table and said: "Jones, I do wish you would quit a foolin' with them beards." Jones said: "Never mind, old woman, two pairs Is purtygood." So the betting went on until Jones had about 15 on the table. "Wait a minute," he said, "till I get some more stufT," and with ttiat he shoved his live curds down In his pocket, went to a comer of the dugout, raised a plank of the floor and extracted u tin can, from which lie took a roll of bills os big as my arm. Sealing himself ho laid .!0 on tho board, and as Johnson met It and raised him ho did likewise for Johnson, until finally tho latter put his last dollar of 200 on the board and "called" Jones, who promptly showed four aces lo John son's three kings and n pair of fives and picked up the $100. We all chipped in to pay Johnson's fare back to Kansas City. THEIR FIRST EXPERIENCE. NuvvYuril Worhnion Strugglo With (Jvnernl Tracy' ltoform Hoard. from IheXtw Yoik Times, ili. Thirteen grizzled laborers, whose hands were far more occustomed to the slcdgo hamraer than to tho pen, went through all sorts or agonies at tho Urooklyn Navy Yord yesterday in endeavoring to wrestle with tho questions propounded by Secre tary Tracy's reform board. It was a novel experience, for them, and they didn't like it at oil; but toch man stuck to his pajiers bravely. Two of the candidates wanted to be shipwrights, six aspired to the office of master joiuor. and five struggled for the place of shipfitter. It was the hardest day's work of their lives. The oral examination was held first, before the full board, the questions being purely of a practical nature. Nobody was asked to solvo abstruse problem's in mathematics, but simply to tell, in a stralght-from-the shoulder way, what he knew about tho business end of his pro fession. In this respect the examination was entirely satisfactory to the examinees as-well as to the examiners. In the altcr noon the written examinations were held, each candidate being given as much time as he wanted. The present Incumbents of the places named were prominent among the candidates. They aro Master Ship wright Ira I.illie, Master Shipfitter Thomas Roarke and Master Joiner An drew Chads. Tlicappcaranco among thccandidalcs of Quartcrnian Arthur J. lloylo as a com petitor for the position of Master Ship litter was a subject or considerable com ment at the yard yesterday. Ilovlo was removed from his position as shipfitter on Cruiser, No. 7, somo months ag6 and his place given to Thomas liourke. with whom he now competes to regain tho place from which, he says, he was un justly deposed. There aro over 100 appli cants, all told, and the general belief is that the board must hasten matters if it hopes to get Its final returns by June 1, when the new men must take their places.
