A meeting of the board of education
will be held at 3 o'clock this afternoon
at which It Is expected that City Attor
ney Healy will give formal notice of his
intention to commence mandamus pro
ceedings against the county auditor to
compel him to extend the nine-tenth tax
levy on the rolls. Ever since the decision of
the supreme court which knocked out
the special act relative to the levy for
the St. Paul schools there has existed
considerable doubt as to the validity of
the law authorizing the levy in Minne
apolis. The auditor has refused to spread
It on the books, and the present proceed
ings are brought with the view of se
curing a legal opinion in the matter.
The committee on buildings met yester
day afternoon and heard the explana
tion of J. A. Nordeen, contractor for the
Emerson and Sumner schools, as to the
cause of the delay in completing the work
en the buildings.
The juvenile population of Kenwood
and a goodly proportion of the grown up
folks, for that matter, are more or less
agitated over the suspension of a small
boy named Earl Lane from the Douglas
school. One day last week a window of
the school was broken, and, whether
wrongfully or not, young Lane was se
lected by Miss Whitmore, the principal,
as the offender. Lane was suspended
from school until such time as he paid
the cost of the light, which was placed
at $1. M. The boy's parents object, as the
boy and a number of his companions say
that he did not break the glass.
The matter was taken before Supt.
Jordan, but as the action of the teacher
is sustained by the latter the parents of
the boy have decided to bring it before
the board of education.
O'fnclalM Worried About Lack of
Room in the New II v tiding;*
A number of the city officials are said
to have been looking over their proposed
quarters in the new city hall and to have
expressed themselves as not being at all
satisfied with the provisions made for
them. Clerk Allen, of the municipal
court, is especially disturbed over the ar
rangement, as lie says the court will be
badly cramped for room and will not have
nearly as good accommodations as it has
at present. The officials complain that
they have not been consulted with regard
to their quarters.

Church Relations With France In
the CnuMe.
ROME, Nov. 27.—The chief preoccu
pation at the Vatican at the present mo
ment is the question of the relations
with France. At the apostolic palace
there is a firm belief that the French i
chamber will maintain the embassy to j
the holy hee, for It is to the interest ;
of France to do so, but there is much ]
anxiety in regard to the other mat- j
; ters.
"You see to what we have come," said
a prelate to one who is in touch with
the Vatican and expresses its anxieties. I
"The budget committee has reported for |
j the suppression of seven bishoprics, and
i the salaries of 700 vicars. The govern
ment Is preparing a bill directed against
associations, the objective of which is
1 especially the religious congregation. It
■ has adopted a bill almost entirely sup- i
pressing free secondary education, mas- '■
' much as it compels officials of state to
pass at hast three months in official sec
; ondary schools. Since the times of Jules
Ferry there has not been such an out
, break of hostility to the church."
At the next consistory v.i<; pope will
preconize a certain number of French
bishops. One nomination, which is of
every importance and is announced as
certain, is that of Mgr. Fuzet at Rouen.
Mgr. Fuzet is one of the most respected
■ men in France. Certain papers have
j even asserted that he is affiliated to Free
j masonry. His promotion to the see of
, Rouen, accepted by the holy see, is a
reward of his devotion to the republic.

ing Friday noon, and all efforts to rouse
her failed. These attacks have continued

NEW YORK, Nov. 27.-Hubert J. Tay
lor, a lawyer, was appointed temporary
receiver of the defunct Franklin Syndi
cate bank today by Justice Simpson, of
the supreme court. The application was
made by W. O. Ingalls, who said he held
twelve shares in the company. According
to Ingalls the liabilities exceed $200,000,
the assets being about $9,000 cash, in the
hands of the police. Taylor was required
to furnish a bond of $15,000.
The hearing, set down for this after
noon, in the case of Louis H. Miller, broth
er of the missing man, did not take place,
owing to the district attorney not being
W. F M 11.1,10 H.
Head of the Franklin Syndicate, for Whom the Police of the Whole Country Are
ready to proceed, and the matter was ad

Several witnesses were ready to testi

rey, the young woman in whose house
the money which was found by the police
is alleged to have been secreted. Miiler
was released on $1,000 bail.
John A. Da-ly.the assignee appointed by
William F. Miller before the latter left
the city, appeared before the police court
today and made a demand on Capt. Rey
nolds for the return of the $5,500 alleged
to have been seized in the house. The
captain referred him to Property Clerk i
Proctor. The latter refused to turn the j
money over, telling Mr. Daly tlvat he
would keep it in his possession until or
dered to turn It over to him by the courts.
Mr. Daly, in all probability, will apply
for a mandamus tomorrow compelling the
property clerk to give him the money.
Lawyer Robert Inman, of the borough
of Manhattan, did not call upon Assistant
District Attorney Steele this morning to
inform him as to the whereabouts of
his former client, W. F. Miller. Mr. Steel 2
said he did not believe Mr. Inman knew
where Miller was, and that he was as
much in the dark as to his hiding place
as the police.
The police today found no clue to the
whereabouts of Miller. They received
many requests for information as to the
best way for depositors to recover their
money. Some of the writers, in their
letters, said they had deposited from
1200 to $500.
Other syndicates conducted along lines
similar to those of the Franklin syndi
cate are being investigated by the po
lice, and by the district attorney of
King's county. All Institutions conduct

John G. Agnew, who says he is the
manager of the Washington syndicate
at 81 Green Point avenue, Brooklyn, was

with violating section 609 of the penal

for a person to display a banker's si~n

foreign policy of the government was
resumed. The minister of foreign affairs,
M. Delcasse, protested against the at
tacks of the (opposition, which, he said,
did not recoil even before the risk of
embroiling France In external difficulties.
The statement called forth Leftist cheers
and Nationalist protests.
Deuys Cochin, leader of the Clericals,
expressed surprise at the Importance at
tached to Anglo-French newspaper polem
ics, which, he said, were only froth.
He added that he was no partisan of the
policy of fist-shaking, but he thought
the war in South Africa gave the oppor
tunity to seek certain settlements. Al
though he disapproved of fist-shaking, he
equally . disapproved of the policy of
crossed arms. Nationalist cheers greet
ed this statement. Denys Cochin con
cluded with urging a more active policy
in China.
M. Delcaese then moved the re-estab
lishment of the credit for an embassy at
the Vatican as a matter of national in
terest to France, a great Catholic na
tion, adding that as long as the govern-
the French clergy with the curia an
embassy at the Vatican was absolutely
Replying. Denys Cochin said that, while
the Clericals would vote for the credit, it
must not be construed as a vote of con
fidence in the government.
The credit was adopted by 349 to 202
votes, and the house adjourned.

a Bottle
Cured Me
"About thirty years ago I
bought a bottle of Ayer's Hair
Vigor to stop my hair from
falling out. One-half a bottle
cured me. A few days ago my
hair began to fall out again. I
went to the medicine shelf and
found the old bottle of Hair
Vigor just as good as when I
bought it."—J. C. Baxter,
Braidwood, 111., Sept. 27, 1899.
Thirty Years
Ayer's Hair Vigor is cer
tainly the most economical prep
aration of its kind on the market.
A little of it goes a long way.
And then, what you don t need
now you can use some other
time just as well.
It doesn't take much of it to
stop falling of the hair, restore
color to gray hair, cure dandruf,
and keep the hair soft and glossy.
There's a great deal of good and
an immense amount of satisfac
tion in every bottle of it.
HM a bottle. All inglst*.
Write the Doctor
If you do not obtain all the benefits yon
desire from the use of the Vigor, write
the Doctor about it. Address,
