respected citizen aud president of the
First National Hank of this town. He
was succeeded by Pi of. Thomas M.
Halliet, now of Springlleld, Mass.,
where he holds a similar position. Mr.
Halliet was succeeded bythe ptesent
incumbent. Prof. T. A. Snyder, who
lias devoted almost nine years to tlie
development ufthe public school Tn-
erests iu ibis county, and as ho does
not believe lu a lile teniae uf ollice, he
as late as last fall gave publicity
through the .Mauch Chunk Democrat
that under uo circumstances would he
be n candidate for le electioii to this
ollice, The llnal announcement of the
county supeiiiitendeut brought forth
a number uf candidates, namely. Prof.
Trauu, of 1'arryvtlle: Prof. A. S. llclse I.
of Lansfoid; Prof. McCabe, of Ncsque-
noniug; t'ror. v. f . rorter, of Kidder;
Prof. Kidd, late of Paclceitou, hut now
of New Y'ork state, mid Prof. N. M.
uaiuei; of .Normal buuaro. To duy but
four candidates remain: Ualllet.Porter,
McCabe aud Iteisel, and the horoscope
plctuies Halliet iu tlie lead with Helsel
a possible second, ami Porter and Mc
Cabe following in order.
lu support of .Mr. Halliet, the Hoard
of directors of Lehighton, shortly fol
lowing tils announcement as a candi
date, passed tesoititious endorsing his
candidacy and earnestly recommend
ing him to tlie school duectors of the
county as a suitable candidate for tlie
very tmpoitaut oflice. Closely follow
ing the action of tlie Kehlglilon direc
tors tlie school boards oi Mahoning
township also passed similar commend
atory resolutions, while promises of iu
dividual support of piomiueiit persons
aud school directors all over the coun
ty come to him almost daily. To this
list also, the school dllectors of other
districts will add their iiuauiuiuus en
dorsement. Of the four candidates In
the Hold Halliet gives every evidence of
the most strength, although two dis
tricts iu tlie upper end ot the county
have declared for Pinter as their llrst
choice. Of Heiset, of LHiisfiml, it is
said that lie will be unable to control
his owu board, and that, fo lowiiu; a
complimentary vote on the llrst ballot,
tue directors will goto lite candidate
showing up the strongest; the same is
said to be the condition of McCabe of
Nesqiiehouing. Those who are ou the
iuside say that three ballots will result
in an election and that Poiter and
.McCabe will be Hie first to drop out,
leavlug thu final baliot between lialliet
and Heisel with every chance iu favor
of the former. Pinter's candidacy is
much weakened from the tact that lie
smacks a little too much of paitisau
ship, the school directors believiug,anil
finite rightly, that so high unci so im
pot taut au ollice should not bo prosti
tuted to so base a purpose. They aro
to be sttongly commended for this
stand and in nssumlngit public opinion
is with them.
During the early part of tills cam
paign when the candidates were only
aspirants ill embryo, a repoit was put
In circulation that Prof. N. Mr Halliet
was ineligible to lids position, Tills
question has been settled by tlie Depu
ty State Supei iuteudent of .Public In
struction, tiom whom we learn that
the essential qtialillcatinns necessary
are as follows:

And futtlier tiiat t ho applicant must
possess a sound moral character. Ol
course this will fully settle all doubts
oonccrulng tne ineligibility of Mr. Hal
liet to this ollice.
Perhaps of the four iiaudidates Mr,
Halliet is the one pie-euuueutly quali
fied, being a young man in the vigor
and Hush of ambition ami with ability
unquestioned, ft is alicady knoiwi
that he attended the schools of the
township where he lived, and that Ids
studies weie supplemented lu the se
lect school at Noimal Sduuro founded
by his brother. He equipped hiiu'elf
suilllcienny Here to enaiiio nun lo se-
cuie a teacher's coitincnte, and for
three years lie taught tu tlie public
schools. He then took a two year's
course In tne Kiitztowu Mate. .Mil unit
School, following which ho entered
Franklin and MarslitillC ollegc, at Itu
caster, from where he graduated with
Ills professional caieer brletly stated
is as follows: Principal of Normal In
stitute forthtee years; Professor of
Latin and Greek in l'ulallimte college
for two years, ihws-,"J; Professor of Iat
iu and and History iu Urslniw College
for two years. 1800-02. He was also for
one year principal of the Weisspoit
schools. Altogetber lie lias bad about
ton years experience in the school
loom. To the public of Carbon coun
ty Mr. Halliet is best known as the
principal of Not mal Iustitute. I u con
uectiou with this Mr, Halliet had ten
dered him important high school priu-
clpalsulp. among Ilie number being
oue at Altooua at 1200, and another in
Armstrong county at Ij00 per year.
From thu fall ot 180(1 to the close of
the lest school year Mr. Halliet nas con
nected with Ursiuus College as Profcs
surofLatlu and History. A sugges
tive commentary upon his work iu this
Held is the fact that, after the llrst
year, he wasappoiuted general super
visor of the work in the preparatory
school connected with tlie college, that
iuuddltioii to his collegiate work, aud
that for two consecutive seasons he
was piesident of a summer school also
xsiniiected with this Institution. These
latter facts isiint not only to live
progressive teaching, but to executive
a llity. Says oue of his distinguished
co-laboiers: "He has been successful
to the highest degree: and has accom
pllshed, both lu and outside nf tlie
class room, what no oue else has ever
beeu able to do al this place. Jle
the faculty ot securing more intelll
gent work from his pupils than the
ordinary teacher; aud as he always
gains the respect and approbation of
nis siiiueuui ue wieius a inignty iiiuu
euce for good. He is oue of the strong,
est men iu the faculty nf this place;
aud, as au organizer and educator, he
surely stands in tne front rank."
This elouuent tribute to Mr. Halliet
from so able and distiugutshef 1 a source
is a siillleieiit guarantee that he Is fire
eminently nualifled to meet the re
siHiusibilities of this important oflice.
The school directors of the county
should wisely consider his candlday
and give him an earnest ami unani
mous support. His election will mean
a step iu advancement and result lu
much gooil for the Public school sys
tem nf tlie enmity. We hare the great
est reiard for each ami all the gentle
men Huplrliiing to tills high honor, but
we believe that Mr. Halliet will hriug
high and excellent Intellectual attain
ments to tlie ollice, and the school di
rectors of the county will make no mis
tke iu electing him
Ths election will take place iu the
court house at Mauch Chuuk ou Tues
day, May 2.
