HOBOKEN THESPIANS OFFENDED.
Father Corrigan'* Sermon Hit the Dram atic A**oeatiton Very Hard. The contemplated entertainment of the Hoboken Dramatic Association is in I definitely postponed. It was to have been given in aid of St. Mary’s Church. The principal of the many causes Is the fact that Father Corrigan put a damper on it in a sermon he preached Sunday be fore last. lie then criticised plays and playgoers In a very unfavor able manner, and his remarks of fended many members of the Dramatic Association. Miss Tillie Huncke is very indignant. She said that she was instrumental In getting up the affair, but had nothing to add to this statement ex cept that she was offended. She hail a good deal of trouble in cancelling engage ments which had been made. , Father Corrigan said that he was criti cising plays and theatregoers generally, and did not intend to preach at the Hobo ken Dramatic Association in particu lar. They had taken offence at his remarks and had not asked for any ex planation. He had preached similar ser \ mons many times before without produc I ing any such result. He was at a loss to I understand the action of the association. It One young lady, who stipulated that her name be not mentioned, remarked & tersely:—“When we gave the last enter- > ' tninnient at Jacobs’ Theatre and realized $300, we offered the money to Father Corrigan, and he accepted it with a profusion of thanks. Our motives are sincere. We labor in a | good cause. We proposed to give another entertainment for the benefit of the L church, and we think it bad grace on the Ilk part of Father Corrigan to criticise us as tjf. he did.” Dramatic exhibitions have been given iff time after time in the old church building, corner of Fifth street and Willow avenue, I and Father Corrigan granted his consent for their peformahee, and has occasionally been present to witness them. The Dramatic Association expects to give an amateur theatrical entertainment in the fall, the proceeds of which will be devoted to the use of the hospital. Company C’s Sociable.

Tho County Superintendents’ Pay Bill Has Been Uulned by ■•Amendments.” The members of the State Teachers’ As sociation are very angry at the way their bill regulating the status of County Super intendents of Schools hus been treated. When it was reported to the Senate last week by Senator Smith it was so changed that its friends could not recognize it. I called on a prominent member of the association at his school this morning, and I asked him what the general opinion was regarding the bill. “The State Teachers’ Association,” he replied, “which has among Its members many of the leading educators of the State, being cognizant of the need of bet ter supervision of the schools of the State, has made several efforts during the last two or three years to secure the desired improvement. EXPERIENCE NEEDED. “At the last meeting of the association, held in Trenton last December, a resolu tion, among others tending to promote the canse of education, was adopted. Here it is,” and the gentleman showed me the following:— Resolved, Tnat it is tbe sense of this conven tion that no one should be employed as City or County Superintendent of Schools who has not had at least three yearn' experience as a teacher, and who is unable to pass an examination enti tling him to secure, at least, a first grade county certificate of qualifications. ,.1, -• .£ • a. J.1 _ till _ by the representatives of the Teachers’ Association,” the gentleman went on, were:—To secure the services of men as County Superintendents who have had practical experience as teachers; to re quire them to devote more time to the duties of the office than the present in cumbents can afford to give for the re muneration received, and to pay them salaries in proportion to tne services re quired. “In order that County Superintendents should be capable of performing their duties intelligently, they should have had, at least, two or three years’ practical ex perience as teachers. As it is part of their duty to examine those who wish to teach, they should possess the scholarship neces sary to perform that duty. They should be able to pass such an examination as would entitle them to secure, at least, a first grade county .certificate. It is rea sonable to suppose that they should have the necessary scholarship to pass an ex amination in the subjects in which the State law requires them to examine others. PAY THEM WELL. “Properly qualified County Superinten dents should receive such compensation for their sendees that they could give their whole time to the duties of the office; they should visit the schools under their jurisdiction at least four times a year; they should examine the schools not less than once a year to determine their classi fication and to note the progress made by the pupils; and they should be capable of offering such suggestions on improved methods of instruction as would aid the teachers and thereby benefit the pupils. “The bill, as reported by Senator Smith, shorn of its most important provisions, if passed, will be of little benefit to the edu cational interests of the State. It slightly increases the compensation of the Super intendents, but not sufficiently to enable them to give the necessary time to the work which the office entails; and it does not require them to possess that profes sional experience without which the duties of the office can not be intelli gently performed. '‘The bill presented by the representa tives of the Teachers' Association, before It was deprived of its vital elements, had real merits, and if passed would enable the different counties to secure the services of men of experience who could devote more time to the duty of super vising the schools of the State, thereby contributing to the advancement of pub lic education and rendering New Jersey’s School law one of the most complete, if not the most complete, in the United States, “It appears the bill as reported by Sen ator Smith has passed its third reading in the Senate. It is to be hoped that the House will so amend it that it will em brace tlie important provisions which were left out Dy the Educational Com mittee of the Senate.” MOXICE.
