"With His Plaint.
5IMP0ETAXT LEGISLATION MAPPED OUT
"" Directors of the suburban schools held
their first annual convention in the chapel
of the Pittsburg Female College yesterday.
The officers were: President, Major K. E.
Stewart, Braddock township; Vice Presi
dents, A. J Kuhn, Homestead; James X.
Moore, Robinson township; Secretary, G. S.
Davis; Assistant Secretary, S. M. Brinton,
Patton township; Executive Committee, Dr.
A. M. Pierce, "West Elizabeth; Dr. E. S.
Stewart, Elizabeth township; R. M. Coyle,
President Stewart opened the session with
appropriate remarks. County Superin
tendent Samuel Hamilton then submitted
his annual report, which stated that in the
county exclusive of Pittsburg, Allegheny
and McKeesport there are 79 school dis
tricts, C17 teachers, 480 directors," 29,293
pupils besides 1,326 children who attended
no school whatever. The increase in the
county schools for the past year numbered
SO, or one-ninth of the total increase in the
State. The Superintendent advocates the
appointment of district principals to super
intend the work of the teachers. Allegheny
county represents about one-thirtieth of the
total educational interest of the State. The
average length of the school term in the
county is 7.6 months. Eight districts hare
10 months; 16 districts, 9 months; 13 dis
tricts, 8 months; 19 districts, 7 months, and
23 districts, 6 months.
EXTREMELY YOUNG TEACHERS.
The employment of teachers whose ages
are under 21 years claims considerable at
tention at the Superintendent's hands. He
is opposed to the election of teachers who
are yet to their teens. In speaking of the
average salary of a male teacner the Super
intendent says that Pennsylvania, the Key
stone State, that pays its "skilled laborers
and its artisans better than any other State
in the union, pays to the teacher only an
average of $38 S3 per month for 7.48 months
in the year, which is less than any other State
in the Union and to which fact be attributes
there being so few male teachers. The sal
ary being more suitable to women they
therefore out-class the men 4 to 1. Compul
sory education is advocated, and to impress
its necessity the fact is cited that last year's
statistics show that in 54 counties out of 56
in the State, 38,446 children of a school age
were reported as not attending any school.
In this county the estimated number ot chil
dren or a proper age , not attending any
school is about 3,000.
A paper was read by A. B. Donaldson,
Esq., of 'WilkiDSDurg, on "The Care of
School Property." He suggested thatif the
property be kept in good repair the mis
chievous boys would not be tempted to cnt
hieroglyphics on the frame work, etc., and
also that the schoolrooms should be better
fitted up than is customary in the county
at present. The reading of the paper was
followed by general discussion. George
S. Davis, Esq., of Stowe town
ship, said that teachers, like
otLer workmen needed tools, and the bette r
the tools tbey have the better work they can
do. The school directors should furnish the
teachers with good tool in the shape of
good, large blackboards, maps, charts, etc.
Henry Donaldson, ot Bethel township, said
that the pupils need pleasant surroundings
while attending schools. Superintendent
Hamilton stated that the schoolhouses in
Snowden, Bethel and Braddock townships
were among the best in the county.
ASHA2IED OF HIS SCHOOL.
ft. difc-ctor from Ersen, in Upper St. Clair
to dsW, broke the dull routine of mutual
congratulations by saying that be was
ashamed of the school property in his town
ship. One of the schools in Upper St. Clair
township stood in the midst of a swamp, he
said, and another stood on the top ot a.bleak
hilltop, with no surroundings save the wild
winds irom the west and north. The school
house at Essen is adisgrace to the township.
The patrons in the neighborhood are all
pretty well to do farmers, and are able to
provide a better building. Only one school
house in the township has a lence, and it
only extends around three sides. The
School Board in Upper St. Clair township,
he said, is the essence of economy. Unless
the board is more liberal in Juture, he de
clared he would not long remain a school
President Kobert E. Stewart, Esq., of
Braddock, announced that Superintendent
Hamilton had received ani appeal from the
School Board of Johnstown for aid. The
nature ot this appeal was printed in The
Dispatch abont three weeks ago. All
?;ontributions may be sent to Superin
!The report of a committee on Superin
tendent Hamilton's report was next taken
up. It recommended:
First 1 hat the directors be paid a sufficient
sum to cover necessary expenses incurred In
Spending the County Institute and Directors'
Second That competent teachers be paid
Third That a compulsory school law should
be enacted by the State.
Fourth That necessary steps be taken
to obtain a more efficient. thorou"h

The recommendations were unanimously
SCHOOL TAXES, TOO.
The committee on legislation consists of
Dr. Stewart, Donaldson, McDonald and
Davis. "When this committee was appointed
Eer. Gilfillan asked that a change be made
in the school tax law. He said that under
the present law the school board did not get
hold of the money for about six months alter
it had been assessed in many instances. This
was too late, for his board had been com
pelled several times to borrow the money to
meet current expenses. Besides many peo
ple move out of the township between the
time the assessment is made and the time
collection of the tax can be enforced, and
thus considerable of the tar is lost. . He
asked that the Legislative Committee be
directed to draft an amendment to the pres
ent law by which the time for enforcing
the collection of the tax will be greatlv
THE TEACHERS TOO.
Tholr Second Dny' Session Comprised
Much Frofonnd Knowledge.
The sessions of the Teachers' County In
stitute were continued yesterday. In the
morning Dr. Z. Snyder, of'Beading, lec
tured on the "Modern Teacher," Miss gillie
Coffin, ot Millersville, took the subject
"How to Teach," f and Prof. E. A.
"Winship, of Boston, gave a learned
talk on "Psychology" Continuing his
remarks after dinner, he said that children
of 7 to 14 years arc held back in intuitive
and natural development and enlargement
ot ideas by many teachers, who treat them
as mere babies, as children without reason
ing ability. This tact the speaker held ex
isted in all of the public schools and was to
be greatly deplored. The child should
early be impressed that he is growing to be
a man, and should be so considered by the
ins tractor, instead of being dwarfed, petted
and given a childish name, as most children
Miss Coffin continued her subject of "His
tory," upon which she had spoken the day
previous. The theory of teaching she ad
vanced was, not to teach the matter as a
whole, but to divide it into a series of sub
jects, embracive of the whole, which the
child could more clearlv comprehend and
study with interest. The history of the
United States could be apportioned into 98
distinctive subjects of importance which
would suggest the minor details. Miss
Coffin advised the subject of history to be
taught to children when they are 5 years
Dr. Snvder spoke on the ".Number Tax
ing as an Abstract Rule." The subject
gave a clear insight into a method for in
structing children in the-principle of arith
metic ENTHRONED A KING.
n. C Frlck Hasten the Connellsvllle Coke
Region by a file Purchase The Trans
actions Are Nearly Completed.
The negotiations in the Frick-Moore coke
deal, which were first announced in The
Dispatch of July4, will probably beelosed
to-day. All the coke interests of Colonel
Moore will be transferred to the Frick Coke
Company. This will in reality make H. C.
Frick the coke King of the world, and give
him undisputed possession of the business.
He now owns over 7,000 ovens, or
more than half in the Connellsville region.
The total number of ovens in the region is
13,511, the Moore Company owning 579.
The latter recently made a large purchase of
coal lands nearUniontown. upon which Mr.
Moore intended to build 500 ovens. Had he
done this it would nave made him the second
largest individual operator in the district.
A call was made upon Mr. "Frick yester
day for the purpose of ascertaining whether
or not the deal had been closed. Tne re
porter put the following question to the
"ilr: Frick, is it true that the deal has
been consummated, and can you not give
the particulars of the purchase?"
"I will neither affirm nor deny the report
that the negotiations have been closed," was
the reply. ' After considerable more ques
tioning the gentleman said: "I will not say
anything that would in any way interfere
with anything that may be going on. I
can say, however, that the deal has not been
closed, but it will likely be."
A call was made at the offices of the Moore
company. A representative of the concern
would not say anything about it, further
than that he would not dony that the deal
would likely be closed to-day or to-morrow.
The terms of the sale have all been ar
ranged, and the only matter yet to be set
tled is the disposition to be made of Moore's
clerical force, etc. It is understood that
John F. Acheson, General Manager of that
company, goes with Mr. Frick in an official
capacity. The transfer includes every
thing owned by the Moore company,
and it is stipulated that Mr. Moore
is to go out of the business. Five hundred
and nine of the ovens are located at the
Mammoth "Works Nos. 1 and 2 on the Se
wickley branch of the Southwest Penn
Railroad, in "Westmoreland county; 70 are
at works No. 3 in Fayette county, south of
Uniontown, near the Fairchance district.
By the purchase Mr. Frick will be en
abled to control the market and make his
own prices of the product. He will turn out
over five times the amount of coke that will
be turned out by the McClure Companv,
which is now the second largest concern in
the region. The Frick works will own over
seven times the number of ovens that are
controlled by the Schoonmaker Company,
which is the next largest firm.

Life Members of tbe Exposition Get Need
In handling the streamers of bunting at
the Exposition several loops were put in
place yesterday, and the 'ceiling decorations
will be in place by Saturday. Bustle and
enterprise seem to be in the Tery air, and
the city authorities inhaled a smallquantity
of it and began energetic work on cleaning
the neighboring streets of the several inches
of ' suffocating dust. "Vjce President

The bids for printing the list of assessed
property must be presented to the Board of
Awards by next Tuesday. Persons who de
sire to bid on the work are at a loss how to
estimate their work, because the City
Assessor is unable to say how much

script for the printer is not completed,
and it was stated at the Assessor's office yes
terday that it would not be finished within
a month. One thousand copies are to be
printed, COO of which will be stitched into
three volumes each, one for each police dis

according to streets and wards. The type
required by the specifications is nonpareil.
and considerable complaint has already
been heard on the smallness of the type.
It was estimated that there would be" 250
pages in the pamphlet, but the work is
spreading out so that it promises to exceed
300 pages. Estimated cost of the work runs
from f500 to 57,000.

FOE THE GEEHANCATHOLIC EVENT.
Meetings Held In Pittshursr, and a Policy
AS T0-THE PAROCHIAL SCHOOL MATTER
The third annual convention of the Ger
man Catholics of the United States will be
held in. Cleveland Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursday of next week.
Great preparations are being made by the
German Catholics all over the country to
attend. The most active part is being taken
by Father Mnhlsiepen, Vicar General of
the Diocese of St. Louis. A letter has been
received from him by Hev. Father J. B.
Duffner, of St Peter's Church, Southside,
requesting a meeting of all the priests in
Pittsburg. Several meetings have already
been held by the priests and laity in St.
Philomena School Hall, and the last one is
to take place on Friday, Bev. Father Duff
There will be at least 1,000 representatives
present from this end of the State. Nearly
all of the German priests will attend. The
leading discussion will be on the parochial
school question. In the agitation of
the question, in this city especially, by
the Protestants, the German Catholics have
been lost sight ot,owing a good deal to their
nationality and having less to do or say in
public than their neighbors in the Roman
Catholic Church. In manv respects the
question with them has a different bearing
than with the English speaking Catholics.
PERPETUATING THEIB LANGUAGE.
To a Dispatch reporter yesterday Bev.
Father Duffner explained the. attitude of
the German Catholics toward the public
schools. He said that they were not at all
antagonistic to the public school, but that
with the Germans the parochial school was
necessary now as a means of perfecting the
German language and the religious instruc
tion of the church. The parishioners
of the churches are all Germans,
manv of them not speaking English. If the
children v did not attend the parochial
schools, when they grew up they could not
half understand their parents.
Another thing, the children of all parish
ioners are required to attend the parochial
school until after their confirmation, which
is usually at the age of 12, and then they
go where tbey please; whereas, attendance
is not required so rigorously at tho public
schools. In the parochial "schools half of
the day is spent in reading German and
half English, the geography and arithmetic
being all in English.
A QUAINT PROPHECY.
Bev. Mr. Duffner thinks the German
parochial school system better than that of
the pnblic school" as it now is. He says
that in probably 20 years or so, the native
speaking Germans will have all died and
all will then speak one language and the
great object of the parochial school will
have been done away with. This will all
depend on the immigration, however.
The discussion of "The Freedom of the
Parochial School" seems to have been in
anticipation that legislation was liable to
be enacted making attendance to the com
mon school compulsory, is against such
measure. Bev. Father" Duffner pointed to
the fact that there was something over 1.600
pupils in the parochial schools of the South
side alone, supported by the parishioners of
the churches in addition to the taxes for the
common schools. If these were thrown upon
the public for education he believed it
would require more buildings and teachers
and make a mnch greater tax on those out
side of the church. ,
SPOOLER'S DRY SlloKE.
He Smokes, but Does Not Light Bis Ci
garsBreaking nimielf of the Tobacco
Habit The Johnstown Hirers.
Senator Spooner, the well-known Repub
lican representative from "Wisconsin, passed
through the city last night with his family
on their way home from Nantucket, where
they have been spending the summer. The
Senator was taking his usual dry
smoke, by biting the end of a 15
cent cigar. At different times a nnmber of
gentlemen offered him lighted matches
while puffing his unlit Henry Clay, and
the Senator had a hard time letting them
know he did not smoke. He chews the
ends of about half a dozen cigars daily, but
never smokes them. In explanation of his
strange habit he said he has been trying to
stop smoking since April 27, and cannot
give up his cigar altogether. "It is
wonderful," he said, ,:how the mere
mechanical action of putting a cigar in
one's mouth becomes a habit that cannot
easily be broken. To a man who has
smoked incessantly for 15 years, and wants
to break himself gradually, the conscious
ness of biting at a cigar is consoling."
In regard to politics, the Senator said he
had been away so long that he had given no
thought of anything but enjoying thp sea
breezes. He stated that he did not think Con
gress would make an appropriotion to dredge
the rivers at Johnstown. "There is no
pretext for it," he said "and notwithstand
ing the condition of the place, Congress has no
right to do it. You could not make the
Conemaugh river navigable, and any ap
propriation used in the way suggested,
would be unconstitutional.
Ex-Mayor Llddcll'i Hearing.
Ex-Mayor Liddell had a partial hearing
before Alderman McMasters yesterday on
the charge of assault and battery preferred
against him by Hooorah Clark. The latter
alleges that Mr. Liddell used violence in

THE SPIRITS TALK.
Sirs. Kntes, the Medium, Interprets far
Llcutfoot in PIscon English Several
Recognize Their Friends An Interest
ing Sitting. (
A fair audience was present last night
when Mrs. G. "W. Kates, the well-known
Philadelphia spiritualistic medium, an
nounced in the hall of the Pittsburg So
ciety of Spiritualists that the spirit of
"Lightfoot," a great Indian, had taken
possession ot her inind. The spirit of the
red man was feeling good, and fairly made
the tongue of the medium fly, but caused
her to stutter sometimes in order to articu
late the pigeon English. Possibly Indian
spirits talk faster than in life or else "Light
foot" had learned the art of fast talking
from some white woman.
Bushing down among the audience Mrs.
Kates touched a young woman in mourning
and said: "Here's a squaw with black
blankets on I want to talk to. I hear a
squaw named JMartha talking. You know
her. I know little squaw. She tells me
some way you will have a fever, if you don't
Going over to another "squaw" she said:
"I see a man in a wigwam. He wants you
'to sign some scratchem papers. Don't sign
'em, cause if you do, you wish you hadn't.
It take all you own away."
In both cases the ladies said they under
stood what the medium meant, and thought
Passing up the aisle, she suddenly stopped
in front of a young man and said: "You's a
'ittle brave I wants to talk with. You in a
railroad accident a while ago or else was
wound une you got brother Isaac."
She then went on to describe some of his
relations and could recognize some of them,
but he did not remember Isaac or the rail
road accident. Mr. Kates told, him that it
was true just the same, and he would re
member it alter awhile.
About the same tests were applied to five
or six women, and they understood "Light
foot's." SPIRITED ELECTIONS.

At yesterday's session of the National
