It Was the Causo of a Btormy Meet
ing of the School Board The
Election of Toachere Held Up An
other Spoil The Story of the
Meeting. '
A move was carried out by the ad
herents of the cause of W. D. Bryden
at the school board meeting Saturday
night, and one which help til' for the
present at least, the election of the
entire corps of teachers for the city.
The board went Into Its expected
deadlock' over the prlnclpalshlp of the
High school, and the three directors
thereafter refused to vote on any of
the other posltlons.thus leaving but
the three votes of Hockenbeiry,
Hushes and Kerwln, an Insufllclent
number to elect. The mutter was fin
ally laid over till the next rcRiilar
meeting. In oider to give the dlrectots
an opportunity to meet a a committee
of the whole and discuss tholr troubles
behind locked doors.
It was 8.15 when the meeting was
called to oider. All the membets were
present. After a few Items of minor
Importance had bcen passed upon, Mr.
Swigert moved to take up the election
of teacheis. Mr. Kerwln nnd Mr. Gal
lagher wonted It postponed, but the
other four members voted yen.
Swlgeit nominated W. D. Bryden for
principal of the High school. The
jp.s and nays were taken, resulting
as lollows. For Uiyden Swigert, Ker
wln and Vannan. Hughes voted no,
nnd Hockenbeiry ami Gallagher te
fused to vote. Thechaltman declared
Mr. Bryden not elected.
Mr. Swigert, seconded by Mr. Klr
wln, moved to defer action on the
election of teachers till the next meet
ing. Mr. Hockenbcriy objected, saying
that It would not be tight to keep all
the teachers In suspense. "Common
report," said he, "says that If Mr.
Bryden is not elected, no other teach
ers will be. If there Is nny man on
the boa,rd who will father such a
scheme, let him come out like a man.
It is the right of the teacheis to know
whether or not they ate going to get
the directors' support. Give every
one the same chance as Mr. Bryden."
The motion to lay over was put and
lost on n tie vote.
Hughes then nominated A. W. Geary
as a teacher.
Mr. Kerwln said he could not see
the use in going on with the election,
hut the chairman otdeied the roll call.
Mr. Swigert moved to adjouin. and
Mr. Hockenberry to.e to a point of
order, saying that the roll had been
ordered, thcrefoie the motion was out
of order. It was so declaied.
The toll was called. Hockenbcuy,
Hughes ,tnd Gallagher oted for
Geary. The other thiee jefused to
vote, making nn election.
President Hughes presented Miss
Lucy Joslln's name, but Immediately
withdrew it.
Swigert moved to adjourn.
Mr. Huirhes said that he hail no
objection to the directors supporting
Mr. Bryden. if they saw lit, but he
questioned their right to hold up every
teacher on the eorps because hev was
not elected.
Mr. Swigert denied the Inference
that he was trying to hold up any
election and said he had moved to ad
journ in good faith. He also icbuked
the chairman for saying It was the
Intention of the directors to hold up
the rest of the teacheis.
Mr. Hockenberry lellcvcd Mr.
Hughes of the blainc for making the
statement which riled Mr. Swigert,
and the latter wlthdiew his ciltlcism
of the chairman and said he would
Tlaee It where it belonged.
Mr. Hockenbcuy s.iid he was not
piepared to say who he would vote tor
for principal, but he served notice
on Mr. Bryden by his action last
nisht. he said, that he would never
vote for him "because," he added, "I
don't consider him competent for the
place.". He argued, howeer, that be
cause Bryden failed of election. It was
no reason why the othets should.
Miss Pace's name was presented by
Mr. Hockenberry.
Mr. Kerwln asked to hae the mat
ter laid over.
The chairman wanted to know why
they wanted to lay It over after
bringing it up themselves.
Mr. Swigert said he would like to
have another committee of the whole
meeting with Mr. Vannan present, he
having been absent at the fine Fri
day evening. After some discussion
this was agieed to and a motion to
adjourn by Swigert was put and car
iled, the chairman serving notice that
the next time the question Is brought
up the whole Nn will be gone through.

Ocean Going Tug-boats, Each Tow
ing Barges, Aie Considered.
Prom the Seattle l'ost-Intelllgcncer,
A writer In the New York Mall and
Express believes that the problem ot
cheap ocean freight rates for bulky
cargoes across the Atlantic will bt
polved'by the substitution of ocean
going tugboats, each towing a numbc
of barges, for the tramp steamships
which at present carry a large share
of such freight. The towhoat and barge
have already cut considerably Into the
coastwise huslness, which was becom
ing monopolized by the big many
masted schooners a few years ago, and
have more recently essayed lengthy
voynpes. The Luckenbachs, the Bos
ton Towhoat company, the Metrittsnnd
a number of other American concern
have repeatedly tnwrd disabled shlpt
2,ooo miles o 0 port of refuge.
The M. E. Luckenbach Is a tine sped
men of the ocean-going tug of the mod
ern type. She has 1,100 horse-power
and steams l"i-i knots when going light.
With three barges loaded with 7.S00
tons of coal, she has frequently mndi
the trip frotn Norfolk, Va., to the upper
bay In New York in forty-eight houtr-.
She can run twenty-four hours on a
coal consumption of fifteen tons; and
as her full bunker capacity is 2S0 tons.
It can be sc-en that she could teadlly
croj-s tho Atlantic, ns she steams 10
knots an hour with her otdlnary tow.
The, with 1,050 horse-power,
has frequently made the round trip
from Philadelphia to Boston with a tow
In seven and a half days, and has a
iccotcl of towing 3.'(,030 tons of coal over
the outside route between those ports
In thirty days. The tow-boats and
barges have also Invaded the Southern
lumber trade. The barge Forest Belle
has been towed fiom Fernandlna, Fla ,
to Boston with 1.400,000 feet of lumber
In view of these facts, It Is not sur
prising to lea tn that a scheme Is on
foot to put a oarge and tow-boat line In
tho fruit-carrying business from the
West Indies. The harges will be fitted
up with lefilgetating appatatus, anf
will ho towd by poweiful tugs at a
peecl greater than that of the Nor
wegian, Biltlsh and American freight
ste.imets which .tie now engaged Ir
that business. It Is also claimed that,
with tefilgeratlng plants on such
batges, It will be possible to ship to
lit eat Britain the major portion of the
American diessed beef, which Is now
being cart led In steamers, and at a
very much lower freight cost. Marine
pngineeis say that It Is possible to hulla
and operate an lR-knot tug to cross the
Atlantic at gieat profit.
The use of tugboats nnd barges ha
not become general on the Paclflft
toast; and there are here no ocean tug?
of the s.ze which have lately come in
use on tho Atlantic, hut theio have
been some experiments In that dliec
tlon, not without Interest. During the
first of the Klondike rush, when there
was an Insufficient supply of shipping
on the Pacific coist to meet the sud
den and urgent ncniand for transpor
tation to the Northern ports, several
barges and dismantled hulks wero
towed to Alaska, laden with heavy car
goes, and last year one noticeably large
barge was towed to Nome.
Whether It would be ptactleable to
tow a IK'et of barge acioss the Pacifln
is an open iiUfstlon. If tug and batge
lines can be opeiated as a commercial
proposition across the Atlantic, there
Is nothing in reason why they should
not be llkevise successful on the Pa
clllc, pattlcuiatly If the not them route
be chosen. Wl'h coaling stations along
the Aleutlin Islands, at Dutch harbor,
ftu1 example, a Mgbnat would have nn
gieater dlhtances to ttavel hetween
coaling points than on tho Atlantic;
neither U there any more likelihood of
encountering disastrous storms on tho
Pacific route than en the Atlantic.
Cheap ocean treight rates to the porta
of Asia will give the United States a
large advantage over Its European
competltois In the coming struggle for
tho trade of Asia.
