The greatest problem ot the edu-
is not the building up ot the city
school and the education of the boys
and girls or the more thickly popu
lated centers. It is how to give the
children of the farms and ot the rural
districts the advantages of the im
proved racmues, tor it nas oeen
pretty difficult to keep the country
school at as high a plane of devel
opment as the city school. This has
raised an unrest and has caused many
a family to leave the farm simply
that the children might have the ad
vantages of the city schools. The
bureau of education has undertaken
a nation-wide campaign for better
rural schools, and the. work being
directed by it Is of the utmost Interest
to the hundreds of country school
directors and patrons. At a meet
ing held at Nashville, the presiding
officer of the conference spoke upon
the subject. "A More Efficient School
System." He stated that the purpose
of this campaign for better schools
1s to bring equal opportunity of edu
cation to every boy and girl in
America, In the country as well as in
the town. As a means to this . end
the commissioner pointed out the ne
cessary agencies as follows:
1. A school term of not less than
160 days for each child.
2. A sufficient number of teach
ers adequately prepared for their
3. Consolidation of rural schools
with an average area of about 12
eqnare miles for each school.
4. Teacher's fcome and a demon-

5. An all-year session adapted to
local conditions.
6. A county library, with branch
libraries at the centers of population,
with the schools used as distributing
7. Community organization, with
the school as the Intellectual, Indus

It Is part of the game of war that
the Deutschland should be hunted to
the death by her enemies. She Is
legitimate prey, and the allies know
that the destruction of the brave little
vessel will be a step toward victory
in the clash at arms for them. . Re
gardless of where sympathies may
tend, there would be a feeling of
horror if some day the word should
come that Capt. Koenlg and his crew
were sleeping the long sleep at the
bottom of the sea in their iron-clad
casket. The vessel has marked the
way In sub-sea freighting, and as the
first of her kind, she occupies a posi
tion in the public mind apart from
the belligerency of the nation which
sent her.
It is suggested that the city coun
cil enact an ordinance setting five
miles an hour as the speed limit up
on the driveways In the Riverside
park. If the park Is to be maintained
as the playground for children and
a place of recreation for all, dangers
nhould be redu"ed to lowest point.

ratined." Hughes said in nis telegram
to the Utah senator.
The telegram which evoked Hughes'
declaration for a reoerai amendment
for equal suffrage was as follows:
"You will no doubt recall our con-
venation a rew days ago wnen i
urged you to make public your views
with regard to the equal suffrage
federal amendment. That platform
commits the party to the principle of
woman suffrage and recognizes the
right of each state to determine the
question ror ltseir. u is sueni upon
the subject of the constitutional
amendment and thereby leaves every-
desire by adopting the resolution or
suomission ana mm coaming iu
states to pass upon the question
which, without the preliminary action
of congress, they would be prevented
from doing. There la a feeling of In
tense Interest In all these sutTrage
states in respect to your attitude and
I think it most important that yon,
as soon aa possible, state publicly
your personal position In respect to
the matter.
"Signed) George Sutherland."
To this telegram Hughes replied:
"My Dear Senator: Tonr telegram
has been received. In my answer to
the notification I did not refer to the
proposed federal amendment relating
to woman's suffrage, and this was not
mentioned In the platform. I have
no objection, however, to stating my
personal views. As I aald In my
speech, I think It to be most desirable
that the question of woman's sutTrage
should be settled promptly. The ques
tion is of such a nature that It should
be settled for the entire country.
My view Is that the proposed
amendment should be submitted snd
ratified and he subject removed from
political discussion.
'Very Blncerely yours,
"(Signed) Charles Evans Hughes."

New York, Aug, 1. Arrests ot
higher-ups In the $20,000,000 explo
sion on Black Tom poulnsula were ex
pected today as a result of a long
iright conference between Prosecutor
Hudspeth and Commissioners of Pub
lic Safety Hague of Jersey City. Ac
cording to these officials,, at least two
presidents ot railroads with Jersey
City terminals are concerned.
These officials before the expected
arrests today refused to say whether
the men would bo charged with man
slaughter, as were the throe men ar
raigned and hold in $5,000 ball yes
terday, or whothor they would merely
be charged with violation of statutes
Regulating shipment and storing of
'ammunition and explosives,
j Prosecutor Hudspeth's proposed re
quests for warrants follows a 24-hour
Investigation which showed that ap
proximately two million pounds of
explosives are handled at the Black
jTom peninsula snd in the Jersey Cen
tral railroad yards nearby dally. From
i Hudspeth's figures and those furnlsh
Ud by W. 8. Topping, chief of the
J bureau of explosives organised by the
railroads, It was also shown $33,
i S4 2.4 SS worth of explosives wore
shipped from this port during May
and that more than $350,000,000
worth of munitions for the allies had
'been shipped from here during the
, twelve months ending June 30 last.
While Hudspeth's Immediate desire
is to prosecute alleged violations, his
j ultimate aim Is to force munitions
makers and railroads to find some
other place than Black Tom, or, In
I fact, the -state of New Jersey, as a
shipping point. He will be backed up
by Representative Hamlll, whois said
to be planning congressional action
toward ' prevention of another such

The known death list this after
'noon remained at four. The Jersey
,CIty coroner announced a fifth death
during the night when Policeman
.O'Neill took to the morgue what he
thought was the head of Mrs, Freda
Wilson, wife of a barge captain. It
was not until an autopsy that the ob
ject was found to be a half burned

babies are among nine known miss

loss Is almost entirely covered by In

'going, will be the sole losers as far
as destruction of munitions Is con
cerned. ,
