Miss Laura liolce Has Gone to Phila
delphia to Recuperate.
RUMOR THAT SHE WILL RESIGN
It Could Not Be Verified Ycstcrday-Sho
Thinks, an Injustice Has Been Bono
Her in Reinstating Pupils Pend
ing an Investigation.
Broken In health and quite unnerved
by the controversies following the dis
missal of a number of pupils from the
training school, Miss Lauru Bolc the
principal, left, on Saturday for Phila
delphia, where she will remain with
friends until the schools open on Jan. 2.
Miss Bolce IJves at the residence of
Colonel Herman Osthaus, 1019 Mul
berry street, and the members of the
household were-very much concerned
about the teacher's health during the
recent trouble. The action of the board
of control on Friday's meeting in re
instating the dismissed scholars was
considered by Miss Bolce as a condem
nation of her act and troubled her
greatly. In speaking of the trouble to
a Tribune reporter a friend of Miss
Bolce said lust night:
"Miss, Hplco wpsv worried, over the
notoriety she uttulned, but the action
of the school controllers worried her
still more, and in a measure incensed
her. While she would have approved
of a more minute investigation than
was really given the case, she felt that
the reinstating' of the scholars preced
ing such an Investigation was a serious
rellection upon herself. Superintend
ent Phillips told Miss Bolce that her
action would In all probability be modi
fied by the school board, but she was
entirely unprepared for the sweeping
disposition. of the-. case," ,
Inquiry diifs not. repeal any opinion
that Miss Bplce( is incompetent as a
teacher; on the contrary she is consid
ered a very (bright and well read wo
man. She is criticised by some of the
controllers for making use of methods
too personal and too exacting. A rumor
that she will resign her position could
not be verified.

cv. Dr. Robinson Discussed the Matter
in a Sermon l ust Night.
In his five-minute sermon last even
ing on "Shall We Have Municipal Re
form," Rev. C. E. Robinson said- that
If It meant a sweeping movement for
cleaning the street, he would say, with
all ills heart, "Yes," us, morally, phy
sically, Intellectually and spiritually,
living in an untidy city was detri
mental to the best interests of the peo
ple. If it meant a call to the citizens to
realize their duties and the rights of
suffrages, he would say, "Yes." If it
meant to support ofliceis in carrying
out tlie existing laws, he would say,
'Yes," lie was amused to read In a
newspaper during the week that some
churches feared that the movement for
municipal reform had a political bear-
lg, but they ought to look with favor
upon the agitation, as lioil wus in it.
He prayed thnt (lod would grant that
good men would fill the various ollices.
who would see thut the existing laws
were fulfilled In spirit und letter.
