Stern of 185 Main street, Danbury I holding a sale of cuualln underwear at bit itore, thtt week. Prices greatly re duced on ihete good at they are alio on all Jcketi In stock. Our Public Schools. A STATEMENT FROM REV O. O. WRIGHT, Under this bead I made the following statement In The Bek, last week : "It bat come to ligbt, recently, that thedem ocratlo members have been charging at the rate of $1.50 per day, or 82 25 per Tiait, and 60 cents for each certificate on which the teacher draws an order for wages." In response to tb.li I received a letter from J. J. Northrop, Secretary of the Board, In which he saye : "If you bad stopped to investigate you would have found you bad misrepresented me. The bills will show the whole truth in the matter. I never charged 84 50 par day for visiting schools or 60 cents for a cer tificate and I do defy you to prove it. I till demand a retraction and correction In the next Issue of Tub Bek," etc. I promptly replied: "I acknowledge the Justice of your demand and I assure you that I shall retract and apologize in The Bee this week, If It Is in my power to do so. I made the statement in good faith, but should not have done so with out first going to the public records. I wish to make all honorable amends for any wrong done to you or any other member of the board or anybody else In volved lu the statement." I hereby confess, cheerfully and with out reserve' that so far as any persooal knowledge of mine was concerned, other than hearsay, the statement was unwar ranted; and I humbly ask the forgive nest of the democratic members referred to. What, then, It my excuse? Bslievlng that such charges bad been made I In quired of the first and of the second se lectman, and understood from them that bills containing such charges had been presented by two of the visitors referred to, at least. Secretary Northrop wat not one of the two, but I also bad reasons to ttink that be bad done likewise. Whether it wat right or wrong (to charge J 25 a visit and 60c for a certificate I did not pretend to lay. Whether it Is right to charge $3 per visit, or 82, or 91.60 I know only by hearsay. I have been asked if we did not charge S3 every time we visit or meet, and was told it was the custom not to have any half days in public business. I have been greatly annoyed by this question of the cost of superintendence. I am one of the tlx visitors who are sup posed to have received 9744 09 In the year '84-'l5. As a matter of fact I re ceived tor services that year 961.60. I am not therefore wU'.iog to leave the mat ter open to the speculations and Infer ence! of the general public O. O. Wright. P. S. : Since writing the above I haye examined some of the bills and accounts Of the town, and haye verified my origi nal statement except in one or two points. I did not find that J. J. Northrop bad charged $2.33 per visit, but the following Item appears In bis bill on the day-book : 1808. "Oct. 1. a Certificates for Sandy Hook 91.00." O. O. W. UlPIia UP WITH THE THUS. This It not to easy a thing to do. It it an electric age; we tpeak by lightning, and we must .think like lightning, too.

Well, thlt lie Spedon put 30 pictures, grave and gay, comical and ourloui, upon bit paper in one bour.

STRIKE THEEATESED AT THE RUBBER A strike was threatened at the Rubber shop on Wednesday and got as far as the calendering room where the trouble was started. One of the men, John McNa mara, was discharged without seeming cause and his fellow workmen stood by him and refused to work till his wrong was righted. This was done and all bands were at work as usual, Thursday. Had the request of the men not been granted it would have probably resulted in tbe calling of the shop. Arbitration is better than strikes, and both the men and the company take a wise step in settling any disputes in this manner. Charles II. Northrop has been el c'.fcd a noL-residcnt member of the New Yoik Reform club, of which Charles S. Ji.- child, E. Ellery Anderson, John DeWitt Warner, William S.
