Big Deficit Threatens at the
End of the Present Year.
Statement Desired.
While school affairs are under dis
cussion, the matter of school finances
generally has been injected into the
It Is reported that the board will not
be able to get through the present year
without a deficit of something like ?80,
000 below the amount necessary to pay
bills. Last year There was a deficit
of half this amount and. according to
men as well posted as anybody outside
the school board, snstead of wiping out
any of this deficit, the board is getting"
in deeper every month.
No complete financial statement is
made by the board except at the end of
the year, but the people of the city
would be interested in a statement of
Just how the finances are being
handled and what steps the board Is
taking to introduce business methods
into the management of the schools and
recoup the school finances?"
There was a deficit of upwards of
$40,000 at the end of the last school
year and figures given from time to
time during the present year and tabu
lated by men who have been watching
the work of the board, indicate that
there "will be a serious increase In !5e
deficit at the end of the present year,
that instead of reducing it, the board is
allowing it to practically double.
The receipts available for the city
schools from all sources for the pres
ent year ought to be about $170,000.
and, from the way the money has been
spent and Is now being spent, it is eMl
mated by those who ought to know, thnt
the expenses will be over 200,000 Saiil
a good friend of the present adminis
tration today:
"The school board ought to make a
statement, and show just how -the funds
are being handled. If the board is not
able to operate the schools with the
money that is being received for this
work, the public believes it should know
it at least, so that provision can be madp
for a larger appropriation if this seems
ts be the only remedy."
As a general thing, public officials
are supposed to administer public ar
fairs with the money provided for such
administration. If sufficient funds are
not provided it seems reasonable to sug
gest that the question be thro"wn open
for discussion, before heavy deficits are

Injuries Described by St.

St. Louis, Mo., March 14. For the
first time since he was nearly slashed
to death by Jack P. Cudahy In the mil
lionaire packer's home early last Sun
day morning, Jere F. Lillis. the banker,
has made a statement.
Lillis declared that the chauffeur
aided Cudahy from start to finish. Both
were in their stocking feet when, they
surprised Lillis and Mrs. Cudahy, who
were sitting on a divan talking of a
commonplace matter, Lillis says.
It was by arrangement with Dr. Sam
uel Ayres that a Post-Dispatch corre
spondent visited Lillis and examined
the wounds.
He found the following wounds, and
each one was explained by Dr. Ayres:
One long cut on the left side of the
neck, beginning below the ear and run
ning up to the mouth.
Threa or four small knife wounds on
cheeks one on the left side of the face,
where three stitches were taken.
Contused and lacerated wound on the
lower lips where the flesh Is loose and
the teeth) broken.
Contused wound on. the bridge of the
nose, evidently made by the heavy
searchlight lantern that Mrs. (Cudahy
says her husband used in assaulting
Two slight cuts on the outside of the
right hand. One cut on both thighs,
each four inches long.
Three cuts on the right, leg, below the
knee; cross cuts on the front of legs;
There is no other wound or scratch,
all reports, rumors and surmises to the
The banker said nothing during the
time Dr. Ayres and the reporter were
examining the wounds. "When the ex
amination was concluded he smiled as
much as the contusion on his lower lip
would allowtland said:
""Well, do I look like I was a dead
"It's just been brought to my at
tention recently what everybody is say
ing about the way I've been carved up,"
said he, with a faint grin on his bat
tered countenance. "Isn't it funny what
ridiculous stories are going around
about a thing of this sort? People
never stop to Investigate or search for
reTiaVble sources, for their information.
They just hear a story, believe It, and
that's all there is to It."
Got Horrible Beating.
"Did you ever have two men sneak
upon you and take you unawares?" he
asked. "Well, if you never had that
experience you don't know how to ap
preciate the beating I got. They came
upon me from behind. Evidently they
were in their stocking feet. Mrs.
Cudahy and I were sitting on the divan
chatting about some commonplace sub
ject, when all of a sudden I heard an
oath, and the next thing I knew the
searchlight lantern got me just over
tho nose."
"Did the chauffeur seem to take a
prominent part In the attack on you?"
No part of LHlis's anatomy has been
seriously injured and within a few
days he will be as sound as ever.
Not Vitally Injured.
"You came with Dr. Ayres," said the
patient to the Post-Dispatch corre
spondent, "and I want you and him to
examine me carefully. This trouble is
bad enough, without the public beifcg
misled Into the belief that I have been
Injured, vitally."
Beginning at the patient's head, Dr.
Ayres and the reporter -went over Mr.
LHlis's body, examining with care each
cut. And when they concluded, there
was not a single wound that could be
characterized as serious.
