The class drill at yesterday's institute caused
some discussion among educators as to whether
it Is not injurious to keep little children under
such a nervous strain. The generrl opinion
was that it did not affect tho health or appetite
of the pupil.
A the meeting of the Teachers' Guild held
yesterday afternoon, the MissesM, McMullen,
of the Minersville school; A. McKlnley,
Forbes; G. McMasters, Grant, and Miss Woir,
Springfield, were initlated-members. A discus
sion.on abolishing corporal punishment is very
beautiful in theory, but not to put into prao
tice.evoked much interest. By quite a majority
it was voted that although one should do as
little corporal punishment as possible, Pitts
burg was not yet quite ready to do away with
corporal punishment entirely. The discussion
at the pext meeting is: "That the Present
Method or Examining In Grammer for Admis
sion to the High School Ought to be Changed."
As unnsnally interesting institute was held
at the Ralston School yesterday morning. Miss
Ella Hanlon, of the Mr. Albion School, gave a
drill with a class of 16 pupils in the work of
Step I, in music, reading and arithmetic. Miss
Hanlon has the ability to arouse a marvelous
activity and interest in her pupils that Is as

Dr. E. E. White, of Cincinnati, spoke on
"language," and advocated that good speech j
cannot be taught through the medium of the
English grammar, and advises its use in the
two higher jrradesjthat pupils should be taught
early- the ability to speak and write good
English, and to accomplish this it should be
made no weekly drill, but the dailv workof
the schoolroom. The course he outlines ih
language work is observation leson, picture
stories, stories, letters and dictation exercises.
Dr. White's address was very well received.
TBS Committee on Teachers and Salaries
had a voluminous amount or work ahead of it
last Friday night. It had to consider no less
than five petitions, all asking for an increase in
salary. First came the 81,400 salaried principals,
then the higher primary teachers asked to be
put on the grammar salary list; the primary
and grammar teachers had a joint petition; the
primaries an individual one, and finally there
was one" to affect the teachers of ungraded
schools. The committee held a very lengthy
session, and then decided to Jeave the
schedule as it is at present, with the
exception of the primary teachers, who are to
receive 555 after five years' experience. Out of
the 600 teachers in the city 40 are primary
teachers, and the committee thought it better
to make a raise where it would affect the great
er number of teachers. Next September when
the new schedule goes Into effect, probably 340
teachers will be benefited, and the additional
expense will be JCO0O. The Central Board

Talked of for iho East End, TO a
Prospect of Materializing,
TWO LAEQK DEALS Ifl EBAWI.
8(w of tba Objections Urg4 AwtaRt
Change of Annual Upvlng Day,
POPDLAKIZIN& , APARTMENT P8EU
There is a movement among East End
business men to establish a national bank in
that part of the city tthlch is considered a,
good openlnc for such an jnstltuUon. A
considerable part nearly one-b,ftlf of the
proposed capital, (200,000, is already as
good -as taken.
The names of the projector are withheld,
for the present, but they are all prominent
and influential citizens pi the East End, A
meeting will be held in a few days to settle
the details, such as name, location, etc.
Aa there are two sides to every question that
comes np for disonssion ana settlement, n is
not surprising that the proposition to change
moving day should encounter opposition. Soma
or the arguments urged against the departure,
aa formnlated by a prominent real estate dealer
on Fourth avenue, are herewith presented.
While there is no doubt that the change wpnjd
be heartily endorsed by the public, (t is. well
enough to examine It in all its hearings, so as to
insure intelligent action at the proper time.
The gentleman said:
"There are several things in the wayflf
changing moving day from April I to. May L
The date first given is firmly established by
long custom, and was sdopted mare from
necessity than convenience, aa no other time
could or would suit the farmers so well. The
time would not only have to be changed in the
City, but in tht immediate suburbs, as tenants
come and go, The people are wedded to old
customs and suspicious of new opes. The
change could not take place, without a good
deal of friction, and in some eases legal diffi
culties, as it would be difficult to have leases
arranged to suit everybody. The unanimous
consent of all owners would have to be ob
tained. Agents can do nothing of themselves.
"I am in favor of the change, and would be
glad to see it made, bat I think we will make a
mistake if we attempt to force it, The people
must be educated np to it, Not only owners
but tenants most join in the movement I
think the tenants are the proper persons to
agitate and insist npon the change."
The sale of two large buildings and grounds
in the East lnd for J140.Q00 was noted in THE
Dispatch two or three days ago, but particu
lars were not given. Some;addltional informa
tion was obtained yesterday. The property
comprises the elegant mansions of Simon Bey
mer and tho late R. C. Schmertz, on Firth ave
nue, Bellfield, with grounds occupying a square
between Craig and Neville streets. The price
as originally given is correct. The purchasers'
names are withheld for the present, But tbey
are both prominent business men, and they
will occupy and improve the properties.
It was reported on the street that the nego
tiations were conduoted by Messrs. Black &
Balrd, but when questioned about the matter
tbey declined to say more than confirm the
facts as above given,
Quite a number ot apartment bouses for
medium class tenants are going np in different
parts or the city, some within ten minutes of
the postoffice, and others are talked of for next
year, Tbey are generally of three and four
stories, without elevators, but have many con
veniences, and are a great improvement over
the old way ot three or four families living in
a house originally intended for one.
.Referring to these buildings Samuel W.
Black remarked yesterday- 'T am glad these
houses are going upi Although not so large as
they ought to be, they will serve to educate, the
people npto something better and-they -are a
good investment, paying from 10 tbI5,'ppr cent.
Apartment bouses are a necessity in Pittsburg,
more so than in any other city in the country,
owing to the scarcity and high price of ground,
and their introduction is only a question of a
little time. They are bound to come."
Although business last week had a number
or depressing influences to contend with
fires, some failures near and far, and a large
installment of execrable weather it came out
of the ordeal with flying colors. The bank ex
changes were over 82.000,000 In excess of the
corresponding week last year. There was no
scarcity of funds for legitimate business.
The speculative markets were, in the main,
dnll and weak, though an occasional rally
served to keep them ont of the rut. A large
number of Important transactions in real estate
furnished abundant proof of great activity in
this branch of business. The demand for holi
day goods was so great that some of the dealers
had to Increase their clerical forces.
The worst roads In Western Pennsylvania,
and in Allegheny connty especially, are pre
cisely where natural resources are the most
abundant. Fifty years ago the condition of the
roads in Allegheny county might hare been
excusable. There is no excuse for them now.
Good roads Improve property; they attract
population; they are essential to social Inter
course, and to the proper discharge of the
duties of an American citizen. The $162,000
supposed to be expended yearly on the roads in
Allegheny connty is in the shape of taxation.
That is to say, the farmers are taxed to that
amount, aud they are supposed to 'work it
ont" on the roads. If they do this tbere is very
little to show for it. The amount of money
stated ought to be sufficient to keep every road
in the county in good condition. There is a
"screw loose somewhere. Where is it?
The Seal Estate Record takes occasion to
say: "The mere fact that tracts or land are sold,
resold and sold again, each time at a higher
figure, sometimes at a profit or 25 and 30 per
cent, is significant. The more so when it is
borne in mind that tbere is no 'boom,' that on
the contrary there is a large number or people
who enjoy the reputation of being 'very con
servative men' who are buying, and that there
is no brass band or anction devices resorted to.
We question whether there is a healthier,
steadier or more regular real estate market in
the country than that of Pittsburg, or one with
as strong a bottom."
Who shall say that the American workmen
are downtrodden and oppressed by capital,
when it is possible for a man to start In a
small way as a blacksmith and wheelwright, as
did Mr. Clem Stndebaker and his two brothers,
ot South Bend, Ind., and work np to become
millionaires T It is not known what Mr. Clem
Stndebaker Is worth, but bis wealth must be
very great when It was possible for htm to
build and support a $300,000 mansion. If others
hadn't the ability to accomplish what he dld.it
is not the fault ot capital, but rather the fault
of their Creator, who made them with less
talent for accumulating. Generally, however,
it is nobody's fault but their own that such
people don't get along.
Of course tbere are exceptions, but no healthy
man with ordinary talents, who decides to lead
a temperate, frugal life, spending continually
less than he earns, can fall to acquire, in the
course of an ordinary lifetime, a competence,
and even in many instances become wealthy.

Sagar ncore n Polut Nearly
New York, December 7. The stock market
was quite active by spells this morning, but
there was a generally stronger tone, and while
all the Improvement was not retained at the
close, the great majority of the list is materially
higher than last evening. The temper of' the
room at the opening wa very bullish, and first
prices as compared with last evening's figures
were generally from iu, per cent higher.
The shorts were covering in the Trusts, and
Coalers and Sugar, Lackawanna and Reading
were the most active stocks, though Jn the
Coal stocks the movements were not equal to
those in some of the specialties. Sharp ad
vances were made in many stocks, and Sugar
shot up to 70, followed by Manitoba, Michigan
Central, the Chicago and East Illinois pre
ferred and the Coalers.
The bears were searching for -vulnerable
SDOts,however, and for some time after the first
rise the market was given all the stock it could
take and Sugar rapidly lost nearly all of Its
early improvement, and some stocks relied
tn L aiia.de below the opening figures. The
pressure was soon discontinued, however, and
the buying again began to tell, and while the
market became duller, prices again advanced
all over the room. The Chesapeake and Ohio
stocks, Oregon Improvement, Denver, Texas
and Ft. Worth and some others showed special
strength in the last rise, and the market closed
active and strong generally at close to the best
prices of the day.
Michigan Central was specially strong, bnt
there was realizing tn Cleveland, Columbus,
Cincinnati dnd St. Louis upon the belief that
tbere would be no further Improvement in the
stock after the declaration of the dividends.
Therowere a few fractional losses, bat Sugar
rose 2Kt Chesapeake and Ohio second pre
ferred. 2; the first preferred. 1; Wheeling and

Railroad bonds were active and generally
Strong, but final changes are insignificant.
There were a few marked advances among the
inactive bonds, but the active issues were only
slightly changed. The total day's business
reached $1,047,000. with no specially active fea
tures. Rock Island coupon sixes rose 3 to 137.
Peoria, Decatur and 1vansville division sixes
lost 8 at 10L The sales of bonds for the past
week were $7,987,000, against $6,811,000 for last
The Poifs review says: It was remarked
yesterday In this column that a good many of
the dailv speculators appeared disposed to
anticipate the advance which everybody con
jcedes is likely to come in January. This dis
position developed into an important, baying
movement this forenoon, not only by local
speculators but by those in Chicago and Lon
don, and the advances of yesterday were
doubled in the short Batnrday. The report of
the net earnings of the Denver and Ft. Worth
for September at $95,483, against $34,476 In the
same month of last year, showing an increase
of 175 per cent, was so large that many were at
first disposed to think it was not on the Bame
mileage, bnt it is, and this fact advanced the
stock I per cent. The buoyancy of the market
held out to the close, though it probably would
not have done so If the bank statement had
come out at the usual time, instead ot being
delayed until U o'clock, just a the stock mar
ket had closed. , ... .. ,
Most people had expected from the large par
ch ai.es of bonds by tbe Treasury and to tbefact
that in Chicago exchange on New York is at a
premium tbere would be an increase in the sur
plus reserve of tbe banks.
Purchase of bonds this week have not
brought out near so much munay from tbe
Treasury as many thought tney would, and as
for the tendency of money to move from tbn
West to New York, it is offset yet by the move
ment to the Sooth and Houtbweet. where the
activity of general DUalnees seeias to reaalre
saorearreoey than ever before. " -

A Bad Bask Statement Caate Speculator
to Feel Nerrou,
By J. M. Oakley A Co,1 BpeeUl WJreO
New Yobk, December T. The stock market
to-day got a little encouragement from Lon
don, whore our stocks were higher. The open
ing here was confident and there was a pro
nounced rise in Sugar to 70 within the first five
minutes. This stock, however, soon eased off
to 63, rallying again to 6& A better reeling
exists concerning this property, bnt there is
some hesitation about large investment in trnit
stocks. The President of tbe United States
has expressed himself forcibly on this ques
tion. Senator Sherman will press in the Sen
ate a bill against trusts, and it is fashionable
for legislators and judges to condemn them.
This condition ot affairs militates against the
Lead Trust, which is in a situation to earn large
profits If let alone. Its present selling price on
the crossly inflated capitalization bnflga. tbe
actual market value or tbe nrooertv down to a
secure basis, bnt tbe projudlce of speculators
ana tne nosiimy oi courta bdu legislatures
forbid any Immediate embarrassment ot valqe.
Tbe market continued strong up to the close
which was reached before the publication of
the bank, statement. This came out at 12
o'clocknnd was bad. It showed a los of near
ly fl.200,000 in reserve and of 11,600,000 in
actual money. This brings the banks down to
about their legal limit, a poor condition to be
in preparatory for the January settlement.
Stocks looKed to be more valuable on account
of the increasing earnings or tbe roads, hut
money may yet be more valuable than stocks,
because of its scarcity. Wa expect-lower prices
on Monday, The bank statement will then
have its proper effect, and as the bears have
covered many short sales they will be in a posi
tion to put them ont again. Notwithstanding
all tbe serious conditions of trade and traffic
we must expect a nervous and trregnUr mar
ket until after January 1.
Tbe London correspondent of the ChronieU,
writing on November ?3, speaks as follows ot
the monthly settlement of tho Berlin Uouxaei
"Monev is very searoe, but as yet all that was
required has been obtained. The rate for bor
rowers in high credit and with first-class secur
ities is 7 per cent. For other borrowers it la
very much higher, in many cases ranging from
12 to 15 per cent. Nevertheless there has this
week been a further marked rise in tbe shares
of Iron and coal companies, and some of the
leading bankers are bringing ont new com
panies in considerable numbers, The position
naturally insures much apprehension. The
German operators appear to take a more san
guine view of Brazilian affairs than is taken
here, and they are also more optimlstio respect
ing Argentine affairs. Yet they are largely com
mitted, both in Brazilian and Argentine seqqr
itles. As regards the Argentine Republic the
gold premlom continues to rise, being again
130 per cent, and speculation appeared to be as
reckless as ever." These facts will do to pon
