HE PASSED AT HEATED MEETING OF SCHOOL HOARD Former Member and West Or ange Commissioners in Tilt on Need of New Building. The lie was passed several times at the special meeting of the West Orange Board of Education last night, between (i. Howlett Davis, a former vice-presi dent of the board and mejnbera of the body. Mr. Davis accused President Robinson of being a czar. The report of the committee which was named to recommend a site to replace the old St. Mark's School was unsatisfactory to the board. The committee will con sider another site and report later. The committee reported on the site adjoining the High School building the property of the W. N, Williama estate. While the site was suitable to the board, the price, 99.260, was considered too high. Another site considered by the board Is the property to the roar of the High School, which la owned by the board. The committee was author ised to consult with an engineer to de termine the cost of an opinion as to the worth of the property as a site for the echool. The land Is low and fills with water after storms. No comment was mads on Mr. Davis’s letter to the county superin tendent and In answer to Mr. Davis's personal letter to the board asking that he have permission to Inspect the building President Robinson said that it was the right of any citizen to In spect a school building. Mr. Davis was not present when his letter was read, but he came In Iatep In the meeting just In time to take part In the con troversy. Mrs. E. F. Childs was heartily In favor of a new school. "Some people don’t realize how much we need a new school^ she said. "The hoard should make out a statement and let the people know just how serious Is the condition In the St. Mark's School.” Mr. Childs, who was with his wife, also had something to say about the conditions at the school. "T have no flowery speech, neither have I an essay prepared." said Mr. Childs, "but I have two children at that school The con dition there is Intolerable. Tt Is a blot on the name of West Orange that it should possess In the principal district in the town such an abomination." "What Is 910,600 for a site compared to the loss of ft child's life through the Insanitary condition of that school? I would like to ask you that, Mr. Davis. How can any sane man say fit. Mark's School should not bo torn down?” “The citizens are not to blame for the condition of the school," Mr. Davis said, but the board Is, and If you will put me in a position to get the records I will prove the board Is to blame. If 94,000 or 95,000 Is spent the school can be put In shape." President Robinson told Mr. Davis that the clerk would give him all data. Commissioner Hlrd did not like Mr. Davis's accusations and he told Mr Davis that since he was a member of the hoard ho had carried out the will of the people. “My charges are against the members of the old board, not against the new members. It Is not proper or necessary that the citizens should tell you to re pair a building. You should do that yourselves." "Did you ever, as you assert 1n your letteri resign from this board?" asked President Robinson. "Sure; did you ever have any other impression, Mr. President?” said Mr. Davis. “Didn't, your term expire?" President Robinson asked. "Well, yes. It did, but I was not a candidate for reelectlon," said Mr. Davis. "Oh, you didn’t resign, you just wouldn't run again,” smilingly Inter rupted President Robinson. "Not with a czar on the board. You are the czar.” said Mr. Davis, not in the least perturbed. President Robinson admitted that If such was the opinion of Mr. Davis he was proud of the appellation and he adjourned the meeting.

At a mealing of the Verona Borougr Council last night Mayor John R. Prati presented his annual message.

Some streets, however, should receive consideration at an early date, and I would Strongly recommend a small additional bond Issue not to ex ceed $40,000 for the further extension of our system and for the erection of a standpipe or reservoir. "The time has come when a clerk of the borough should give his entire time to borough interests, and I rec I ommend the appointment of a clerk under such arrangement at an annual salary not to exceed $1,000. The ex pense to the borouyh would be only slightly Increrased, as the clerk could take charge of the water Inspection, which coat $850 last year."

When asked by your president, Mr. Sterling, to address you tonight I took It as a great Joke, end I consented to J come here tonight believing it to be a | joke. Now, however, I believe you were sincere, and It shows to me that— you have ^adopted me. You are tha » , aristocracy of democracy. I sometimes f cannot think that the English-speaking j race cannot be democratic, because tha Anglo-Saxon thinks there Is no one cn J God's earth as good as he is. But in spite of ourselves we are producing democracy because the Engllsh-speak- j ing people believe In working for equal ity. The bltterners of many Americans Is passing away. Our children are now being taught a better view of the Revo- , lutlon than they formerly were."

It was a part In the long line of struggle of the English-speaking people for liberty. Therefore when I arrived In this country I had no read justment to make. I believe I would be a good American, even If I lived In England.” ' I 'the doctor then explained that the only reason that he was not an Amer ican citizen was that he had beep only four years In this country.
