PRICE ONE CENT. = SNYDER ON BABYJBHOOLS City Superintendent Says They Are Necessary if All Children Are to Epjoy Full Ses sions. HOWLAND MAKING PLANS Special Committee of the Board of Education Ap pointed to Investigate the System. s' [■ 1 n The Board of Education decided last night to proceed with the work of erect ing a dozen baby school houses in the yards of the public school buildings. * On motion of Director Ridgway a com mittee of three was appointed to investi gate the temporary schools in other cities and report Their findings to the Board. Messrs. Levis. Moran and Coyle were named as the investigators. Architect John T. Rowland was in structed by resolution to proceed with the preparation of plans for the buildings. Mr. Rowland explained that he had drawn sketches providing for frame structures containing two class rooms. 23x28 feet, and -13% feet liiglt each room having a seating capacity of 50. The exterior of the buildings will be of White piue and the interior of North Carolina pine with heavy weather paper between. The structures will rest on concrete and the floors will be twenty inches from the ground. He said the buildings can be constructed at a cost of $1,400 or #1,500 each. MR. SNYDER’S VIEWS. Superintendent Snyder said:—“I pre fer to call the proposed buildings tem porary instead of portable school houses. 1 reported in October that there were 0.000 children in the city who were in the ha if-day classes. - "One-quarter of the school children of the city attending school luire less than a full day! In November the Mayor asked me to present the facts to him t JTfryvMftlff suuHfcr wtategwnt.. •■ion must relieve the conditions wIfich face the city, tf bonds were issued for a new school, the building could not be finished before September. Last Sep tember 1,200 more children were enrolled titan at tlie opening of the fall term a year before. Next September we will have a still larger increase. With the High School project on your hands, you will have no means with which to make provisions for the construction of per manent school buildings, SYSTEM NOT NEW. “The temporary school system is not new. It is' not my idea. I simply sug gest the plan as a good one to provide all day school accommodations for all the children of the city. St. Rods had the tem porary schools first; then Milwaukee, Brooklyn, Boston and Newark. "’j'he class roaais will be exactly like the rooms in any of the model schools. Nos. 17, 20. or 28, for instance. "The only objection which could be made, to the plan is ;thdt it might be ;o*tly. But what can be considered cost ly when the education of children is at v \ I: I T )f rtaker e'i'he class roams in the proposed schools will be just as well ventilated and lighted and will he a* healthy as the r-lasa rooms in the larger schools. There will be no danger in ease of fire. There •mallet children' will be placed in them and their isolation will he an advantage. The schools will be erected in the yards which are large. There will be no res triction of the play grounds." Director Clute suggested that the ar ’b teet study the temporary schools of Dutton. "There are so mapy little looses aromuT some bf the old Boston schools,’?, he said, "that they look like a sror.il of chickens around the mother. Vi'LPF. l’HEY WILL BE LO CATED.

House Braced Up for Repairs Gives Rise to Sensational Rumors. Rumors have been floating aronnd in the neighborhood of Colgate and Wayne streets to the effect that, the three-story frame building, No. 234 Wayne street, was in imminent danger of toppling over. These rumors were strengthened by the appearance' of a gang of house movers, who put large wooden braces against the Colgate street_side of the house, runuing from the middle of the street to the sec ond story of the building. A reporter of “The Xews” interviewed Mr. P. Tnm ilty, owner of the property, who said:— “This house is built on taeadow land and, as is common with swell ground, a slight settling has been going on for years. There is positively no danger of a tumble or any ear.se for excitement. | Why! 1 have six families as tenants and would not think of allowing them to reinaui in the building for a moment if there was any danger. Those braces are simply for the purpose of holding the building in position while the house is being straightened and the foundation strengthened.” -%■ — SEVENTEEN YEANS PRESIDENT Frank O.

Mayor Fagan and General Manager Young, of the North Jersey Street Rail way Company, had another conference yesterday afternoon on the question of improving the trolley service. It was announced by an officer of the administration' that Mr. Young agreed to rqeommeud to the directors of the coiqpany the advisability of issuing transfers to and from the Erie street line. v , Mr. Young said that transfers c-ould not be granted from the North Jersey’s ears at the Five Corners to the cars of the North Hudson County Railway Com pany, for the reason that the companies are separate. He said that new cars have been put on all the lines running through the Hudson City section wmi the exception of the Court House line. He promised that new cars will be put on this line in the near future. , Tlie connection of lower Montgomery street by trucks during the rush hours and the consequent blocking of trolley cars were discussed at length.

Trucks bound west will go straight up Montgomery street. Another conference on this question will be held at wliicli Chief Murphy will be invited to attend. * Twenty additional cars will be put on the different city lines on January 20. JACK THE KNOCKER. Mysterious Rappings oh Doors and Windows May Be Due . to the Black Ghost. Is Jack the Knocker and the Black Gliost one and the same? The Knocker is the latest Bergen mystery, and has for the past week been annoying many resident* of that section of the city by his strange rappings on doors and windows. Unlike the ghost, hptvever, he has been invisible, there being up .eye witnesses to his visitafiim*. He has conftued himself so far as can bt learned to the neighborhood of Bram kall and Jackson avenues and Seidler street. A few night ago Charles Moore, of Scidler street and Bratnhall avenue, heard a knocking at hi* front door. He opened It. but the stoop and street were deserted. On Tuesday evening the Beil family, of No. J® Seidler street, were startled at about ten o'clock by sharp raps at the parlor windows: not a sign of anyone was visible, however, when an investigation was made, East night' John O’Brien, of Brainhall avenue and SaektAt street, was enjoying the com forts of his home when at ten o’clock he heard a distinct tapping at his door. Expecting a belated visitor he was sur prised to find no one in sight upon open ing the door. Tire two mysteries have go affected the residents of the Bergen and Greenville sections that women are‘afraid to be upon the streets after dark, and men hurry to (heir destinations do avoid meet ings with the ghost. People are in a state of terror, and policemen hare been instructed to inquire into the business of any suspicions persons. Jack the Knocker and the Black Ghost are the principal topics of con versation in clubs, cafes, family circles, social gatherings and wherever people congregate. Even school children wonder over the mysteries and tell each other weird tales of ftheir individual experi ences as well as -those of their relatives and friends with the spectre. Vigilance committees of young men and boys prowl about the streets at night armed with club and in some instances firearms, and woe unto the ghost should he be a thing of flesh and blood, if one of these committees happen upon him.

What promises to develop into an in teresting tight betweeu the Shore Road and the city officials of Hoboken will commence -at the next meeting of the Councilmen. when two resolutions are to be introduced. The first resolution will provide that theclty take action against the road to compel it to remove its tracks in front of Hudson Square Park. The Council men say that the franchise granted to the road 'In 1805 which permits it to have its tracks in front of the park, is illegal and should be rescinded. The Other resolution will provide that the. citj compel the road to move its tracks between Eleventh a nil Fourteenth streets, flow the middle of the thorough fare to two feet within the easterly curb line. The franchise granted to the road, contained this provision, but when tiie tracks were being laid it was found that a thru to be made N^t the southwesterly corner of Eleventh street would not per mit of such a close run to the curbiine. Tba ttlrn was accordingly run to t1^> middle of the street, and the tracks con tinued to Fourteenth street in the same course. ' No protest was made against the com pany at the time when it did this. If.e Councilman sa;.\ that it $4. o' gross vio lation of the privileges granted to the road in its franchise, and should never have been countenanced, “As for permitting the road to cross Hudson Square Park no Council has powers to grant snch privileges,'' said one member of the Board today in dis cussing the proposed proceedings. “We have been advised by counsel in this matter, and propose to bold the road to gc'omit.*’ , - - Palmeci Campbell, president of the Shore Ko;aI. was Hot at his office this morning.

Friday morning, January Id. at ten o’clock, r Several UjipVaIs have been scheduled for hearing. The majority of property ■owuers.who believe they have grievances agauist .-tlie local taxing department arc appeal mg front assessments levied in 1001. The estate of. William Gaul appeals from all assessment of $2,800 oil a lot ami dilapidated house at Xo. 137 ~Pn Yonia avenue. and asks for a reduction to $1,800. George -Billington. who was assesseil $10,600 un property at Xos. 8ti. 88, tH), 92 and 94 Kearney avenue, does not ask for any. specific reduction. He leaves that to the judgment of the board. ORPHANS' HOME TAXED. The Christian Home for Orphan Chil dren asks for exemption on the grounds that it is a charitable institution. An assessment of $3,500 was levied against the home building at Magnolia avenue and tlie Hudson Boulevard, which was formerly used as an hospital. Annie M. Williams, who was assessed $22,000 on a building at Xo. 153 Newark avenue,, requests a reduction to $19,000. The assessment was levied in 1902 by tlie Board of Fiddlers. ' The city will make a desperate effort to prevent a re ductiou vLthii.valuation because the ap peal is looked upon more or less as a test case of the assessments levied in the dry goods district. Other property own ers on Newark avenue will probably ap peal if Mrs. Williams is successful in her fight for a lower assessment. CURRIE ESTATE APPEALS. ~ The estate of William Currie appeals from an assessed valuation of $7,775 on several pieees of property in the Green ville section. The Commissioners will be asked to assess the land at its trne value. Eugene Sullivan objects to an assess ment of $5,500 levied agaiust No. 206 Fourtli street and petitions for a reduc tion of $500. Bernard Levine. Jr., owner of Xos. 289 to 311 Arlington avenue, and Xo. 33 to 37 Union street asks that the valua tion of $28,000 levied in 1902 be cut down to $25,600, the figures of 1903. —-♦-.
