WELL KNOWN EDUCATOR AT
She Spoke at Yesterday's Session on
"Good Discipline" nnd on the Rela
tion of the School to the Individu
al Child and to the Community,
Talk on the Life of Thoreau by
Dr. Green A. E. Winship and A.
J. Demarest Also Lectured Cho
rus Singing1 by Children.
The second day's session of the teach
ers' Institute served to Introduce Miss
Sarah L, Arnold, of lioston, considered
iih tho recognized authority on Eng
lish work In, tho public schools und
one of the most Important factors In
tho educational life of New England.
Miss Arnold's series of books, "Step
ping Stones lo English Literature," arc
In use in nearly every city of any size
In the country. She Is one of the most
pleasing women who ever uddressed a
Scranton audience. Quiet and rather
undemonstrative, she nevertheless com
pels attention. She gave u. helpful talk
on "Good Discipline" at the morning
session.- It was brimful of good sug
gestions which were based on the per
sonal experiences of Miss Arnold.
In the afternoon she was to have
spoken on "Language Work," but she
chose Instead to talk upon the genornl
subject of the great use education Is to
the individual and to the community
at large. She said thut there Is a
growing tendency on the part of the
people of this country to take the
school like a Christmas present with
out considering for a moment Its great
usefulness and its wonderful effect
upon the life of the nation.
RIGHT TO COMPEL.
She declared with emphasis that the
state has an unquestionable right to
compel every citizen to pay a certain
proportion of his or her earnings for.
the support of the public school, be
cause the public schools tend toward
the betterment of the whole commun
ity. She said that every child who
goes to school Is better und happier
when he or she comes out. Tho modern
curriculum should respond to this test,
she said, and it does nearly always.
In leaching reading, she said, It Is a
good thing to teach the child to sim
ply read words so that he may be as
sisted in making his livelihood, but it
is far better to teach him the subject
in such ii way that he or she may be
guided into the realm of books, the
reading of which will make him or her
better nnd nobler. The methods of
school routine and discipline In force
in various schools also have a contrib
uting effect towards a child's happi
ness or discomfoi t, or for better or for
Dr. F. H. Gieen continued his talks
on English literature. In the morning
he had for his topic, "A Glance at a
Century o Literature." It was only a
passing glance, to be sure, but it was
sufilclently long to enable the doctor to
draw out of the storehouse of his re
markably retentive memory some of
the gems of the master minds In the
literal y field who lived- during the nine
teenth century. Each quotation was
given with the view of presenting the
dominant note in the writings of each
poet or writer.
At the afternoon session Dr. Green
gave a talk on "A King in the Wilder
ness." The king he referred to was
Thoreau, the eccentric Massachusetts
naturalist, who never went to church,
never voted, never married, never
drank, never smoked,, and who lived a
simple life in a log cabin near Con
cord, built On land owned by Ralph
Waldo Emerson, the quiet philosopher,
who was his nearest and best friend.
The doctor tiaced the life of this
quaint character and again took occa
sion to pi each a little sermon on the
gospel of good cheer, taking for his
text Thoreuu's own dissertation on the
doctrine of "internal happiness." He
said that In his opinion the time is ripe
for some teacher to rise up and write
a companion piece to the old hymn
"Take Time to Be Holy." The new
hymn should be called "Take Time to
See Beauty," he said.
The attitude of the normal, average
man toward the beauties of nature, he
said, are very much like those of a
well-dressed traveler who was stand
ing on the summit of a great moun
tain peak in the Rockies gazing out
over the wonderful beauties of the
valley below and at the rocky snow
clad peaks throwing their jagged tops
into the heavens on nil sides. A true
lover of nature, enthralled by the
scene, a'pproaehed the well-dressed
traveler and as if afraid to break tho
silence, whispered to him softly:
"Isn't this the most glorious speetti
cle you ever saw?"
"Oh, I don't know," said the other
man, "the thing that's been puzzling
ine for ten minutes Is how they ever
painted St, Jacob's Oil on that big cliff
A. E. Winship, editor of the Educa
tional Journal, gave a talk on the
modern methods of teaching geography
at the morning session, und A. I. Dem
urest spoke on "Teaching Beginners to
Read." Miss Anna W, Williams gave
an ethical interpretation of Dante's
"Dlvlna Coruedta," which was rather a
ponderous subject to be handled In the
brief space of time alloted to the In
Especial features of yesterday's pro

CONCERT FOR THE HOME,
Artists Who Will Be Heard nt the
Armory Tomorrow Night.
Tho new armory, transformed by the
magnificent decorations for the charity
mil Into it grand symphony of colors,
will bo the scetio of the Homo for the
Friendless benefit concert, which takes
place tomorrow evening. Just one word
more concerning tho three distinguished
artists whom the managers have en
gaged. Tho violinist, Fritz Krelsler, has
won mole laurels this year than nny
other violinist since Wllhclmz toured
tho stutes. His appearance with the
Boston Symphony, .New Yoik Philhar
monics, Theodoro Thomas' orchestra
and Philadelphia, orchestra wero suc
cesses or the greatest magnitude. Im
mense interest Is being cenetred uniting
the musicians of Scranton and vicinity
over his coming.
Mndnme Blauvelt has hosts of frlpnds
hero since her appearance for tho Elm
Park church and the St. Luke's kinder
garten. We have not forgotten her
singing of "Coming Thro' the Rye,"
"Home, Sweet Home," nnd the brilliant
Aria from mighty "Pens." Her voice
is In perfect condition, und the greatest
enthusiasm attends lior every unnear
unee. She Is of the fairest features,
-her manner cordial and simple. Mad
ame Blauvelt sang la opera, making her
debut In the role of Angelglne In M,
Bonnenu's opera, "Le Rene." She also
sang In Brussels in Gounod's opera,
"Mlrellle," a part of which she will sing
at the armory tomorrow evening. .Her
voice is remarkable In that, while flex
ible enough for the Intricacies of floria
work, it Is not cold as the ordlnnry
coloratura singer, but glows with the
warmth of a genial, deeply soulful
musical temperament, and In this truly
emotional power she Is the superior of
Melbu, Sembrich, Adums, and other
Of Ben Davles, tho great London
tenor, his unique position today among
the singers of the world Is sufficient to
fill the armory. Never has such a star
musical attraction joined forces for one
concert, and it is one that should fill
the armory to its utmost capacity. This
expensive trio can be heard by every
body in our city, for the managers have
placed GOO seats at seventy-five and
fifty cents. Those who have tickets not
reserved had better do so at once, as
they are rapidly being sold.
The Boston Transcript, speaking of
Ben Davles, says:
"Last Sunday evening the Handel and
Haydn society sang the 'Creation' be
foie an audience of 3,000 people, Mr.
lien Davles sustaining the tenor role.
He was easily the star of the evening,
acquiring the greatest Individual effect.
Especially fine was his singing of "In
Native Worth." He has a largeness of
vocal production, surety, frankness,
solidity of tone and manner which
Americans do not acquire. He sings as
if he had nothing else of importance in
the world, and not as if music were but
one of several strings to his bow.
"He produces his voice as if he was
not afraid of it getting away from him
and being lost. He delivers the verbal
text as if he intended every syllable to
be heard, and he emphasizes as if he
made up his mind twenty years ago as
to just what ho meant to say. Mr.
Davles is well known as a straightfor
ward, consistent exemplar of the best
school, and it was good to hear him
again. Ho received the only encore of
the evening. A beautiful voice, manipu
lated by tho soulful and mature touch
of an experienced artist."
The piano to be. used at the Home
concert tomorrow evening is the one
Harold Bauer, the famous pianist, used
at a recent concert in Boston. It is an
extra large Concert Grand.

SOLICITOR WATSON ANSWERS
He Declares Thnt Coal Owned by
Parties Not Owning tho Surface
Above Should Be Clnssed ns Third
Class Property Coal Owned by
Persons Owning Surface Should'Be
Placed in Same Class with Surface.
Coal Breakers Are Assessable as
City Solicitor George M. Watpon
has furnished tho board of city as
sessors with a written opinion dealing
with the questions which have arisen
regarding the classification of tho as
sessment on coal.
Mr. Watson declares In this opinion
the full text of which is ptlnted below,
that coal severed from the surfuce or
owned by persons or a corporation
other than tho owner of tho surface,
should be classed as third-class prop
erty, while coal not severed from tho
surface should follow the class In which
the surface Is nut. Ho polnls out tho
necessity of not specifically assessing
such coal, but rather of aiming nt a
fair estlmtae of its value and lumping
It with the valuation placed on the sur
face. Coal breakers, ho says, should bo
classed as first-class properly. The
opinion is ns follows:
To the Depaitiiiinl ot Awcois of the C'lly of
Gentlemen: f'oinpljlng with jour loinicst for
nu opinion in lelaliou to the ave-tniont of roil
lands within the city of Scranton, I tend you tht
U,v the lerms of the act of general assembly,
approied July I), 1S!)7, proiding for the classifi
cation of real estate and other piopeity, for pur
poses of taxation, in cities of the tecontl cl.ua,
and which ealil act is expressly prescned by the
leuns of tho net of March 7, 1901, creating the
department of assessors in cities of tho second
class, I ilnd that the classification of real estate
within siitil cities is dhided into tluee d:isc,
liulll up, which fchall be in the liist class.
Suburban, which shall be in the second class.
Agriciiltmal or untillable lands, which shall be
in the thlid cl.iss.
I find that the coil undeiljing the city of
Sunnlon, which Ins been &eeied fioiu tho em
face, and is owned by another person, should be
assessed to the owner of the coal, and not in the
name of the owner of the suifaee, and that coal
so undeibing and sccied fiom the surface is leal
estate within tho terms of tho act, and being real
estate which is non-pioducllu- in itself, it
should be placed in the thlid class, as pi o idee
by said .ict.
I find upon c:aininalioii of Ihe assessment that
there ale within the eily certain mineial estates
which h.Tie been di'idedj that is, moie than one
poison owns the coal underlying- the em face,
which lias been acquired by the owneis at chlTci
ent times and by dillerent com cj anccs. In
niaUnij this assessment of coal land thus divided,
n division should be made and the valuations
placed upon the value of the real estate held bj
each owner, and the assessment laid upon them
sepiiately, but in no caso hI.ouUI tho assessment
exceed the amount that would have been as-e-scd
upon the piopeity had the whole cslate been in
one onnei. This may cause vou come anno.vance,
but f think the hue values can be leadily ascei
tallied by an examination of the scveial owneis'
interests, which the law .tuthoiircs von lo make.
Vou can summon the owneis, of the lands to vour
office and theip examine them upon their cstalc,
and by such examination mccitain their inleiest
in tho laud.
AS OM1 A'-SDssUKNT'.
In lelaliou (o lauds undeilald with coal that
remains in the owners of the surface. This
should bo placed in the ciius to which the tin
face belongs. If the sm face be built up and ini
pioved, the whole estate must be assessed in one
assessment, and the property placed in the classi
fication to which It belongs, by reason of the
impiovcmcnts upon the smface. This can leadily
be done and an equal assessment made of all
co.ll land values within the city. 'licie the
piopeity is built up, the coil has geneially been
woiked out, or the title to the coil is Reparole
fiom the suifacej but vvbcie it does exist, jou
can readily add sufficient value to tho ical es
tate, by le.ison of the coal remaining under tho
smface, or such an assessment as will bilng an
equal taxation upon the coal lands so situated
wilh linds serried fiom the smface. Wheic the
coal is undcil'iiig Kiibiuban piopeity, it 6ecins
that the same geneial lulu as laid down to piop
citlen of the (list class might bo leadily cnfoiced.
As to the coal lands undcilying the suifacc of
piopeity in the thlid class, jou will then be
obliged lo mill to the value of the coal lands Ihe
additional value of the'suiface.
In relation to coal-brcakeis, they should be
placed In the Hist class. They aie unquestion
ably operations cairied on by the use of engines,
boileis and inachineiy, and are changing the class
or thiiiictcr of the coal, and to a ceitaiu extent
aie mauufiluring pints. While, they -do not
nianufacluif- coil, they piep.ue coal lor eeitalu
uses, and, I believe, should be classed the same
as tny industiy changing the character of ruvv
nialeiials by changing their foim for maiket.
The question of the pioper class in which to
place tlie leal estate in the clly is tho only
question submitted to me by your inqtihv,
The legislature hiving omitted to paitlcularly
mention mineial estate, it becomes your duty to
classify this; piopeity accniding to vour best
Thcicfoie, coal seveied fiom the smface, being
non-pioducing leal estate, it natuially falls in
tho thin! class. Coil not sercied fiom the sur
face should follow tho class In which the 6iitface
is pul, and the assessment should be so giaded
as to lay the bunion ot tho tax: upon the coal by
reason of Its undeilyliig lust-class piopeity, the
same as it is upon other coil lands within the
city. Very icspectfully .votns,
