' HEAR MUCH These days about suits being made to order from $10 up. Simon & Mosen felder for the past seasons have had sev- , eral of th; best of these Tailoring Agencies who make these cheap dothes "to or der," and we have them still. But do not for a minute think that you are going to get anything better than our own make of goods; not much. These wholesale tailors want something for their Jabor so does the agent and the result b that you pay SI S for a suit to order (and no better 'fit nor workmanship) for what we charge you $10.

The" impression which the Union as the mnntknippe nf rtr trs ? .. - r ivinyon is seeding to convey, that the teachers are aking anything of the board is erroneous and nniu.t.

The plan suppested hv Dr. Kimrnn and the Union is that the board lir-t meet and reconsider the. ant inn in reappointing Supt. Ament and that i 1 . . me -teacners between certain hours' next Saturday file their charfrcs and that the board th An irrain act on the question of retaining the nuperiuteouent. ino status 01 the matter is simply this, if the board regards the resolutions of the teach ers as of sufficient i fnnnrtniA t.n re- consider its action as regards the reappointment 01 me superin tendent, why go any farther than to reconsider the vote? Does Dr. Kinvon think that after an In vestigat'ion if the board should con- siuer mo ciiar?M inannieient: n alter its course and should then re appoint the superintendent, it would uarw any cucci in removing me pres ent unfortunate situation, either in the minds of the teachers or the nnb- lic?

The clan of Dr. Kinvon a'rilrna Tiik Am: i s as purely an attempt to wuuuwasu. io actiun on tne part of the board which does not involve the reverse of its course at the last meet ing will suffice to settle the present controversy. Any move that would eventuate in the reappointment of Supt.

It the present board does not, another board to be comoosed after the .Innn election will, and nothing short of such a proceeding will serve. To be blunt no subterfuges go. Aside from the indelicacy of Dr. Kinyon's position, wnen it is consitiorea that Mrs. Hamilton at the meeting of the hoard the night Mr. Ament was re. chosen, stated that h had i gated the aharges against the super intendent .and found them dne to a misapprehension or deliberate false- uuuuB, i uues not seem rigni to ex pect the teachers ta individ ually go before a board whiefc is aireaay prejudiced against them.
