district may use money derived from
the sale of bulldlncs foe current ex
penses, or whether such money must
lie turned Into the sinking fund.
President Harry A. Boyer hopes to
have a legal answer on the subject
from ex-Judge M. W. Jacobs, the
board's attorney, in time for to-night's
Werner's Suggestions
The suggestion was made by Direc
tor Oeorge A. Werner in finance com
mittee last evening. In brief, his plan
is to sell the Fager building In Wal
nut street for approximately $20,000
the Vernon school lot for $4,500, and to
eliminate the SI,OOO salary of George
W r . Mcllhenny as school treasurer.
In committee, however, the legal
snag was raised. The school authori
ties heretofore have held that tht
buildings and grounds are a part of
the school district property upon
•which the bonded debt is floated
When these, are said the proceeds must
necessarily be used for the liquidation
of the indebtedness through the sink
ing fund, because the bondholders,
otherwise would lose equity in their
holdings. It was in accordance wltfc
this idea that the i 11,500 recelvec
from the State Capitol Park Extension
Commission for one of the colored
churches In the Eighth Ward was
turned into the sinking fund.
Should Mr. Werner's theory be con
sidered practicable the city will sav«
$25,500, just about enough to cover
the half a mill Increase.
Instead of employing a school treas
urer, Mr. Werner's Idea was to allow
one of the city's trust companies to
handle the funds.
Stirring Meeting Tonight
While there is bound to be a lively,
even heated discussion at to-night's
meeting on the subject of increasing
the tax rate, some stirring develop
ments are anticipated when other
Items of the committee's recomenda
tions are voted upon.
The propriety of incorporating some
of the items in the budget at this
time, when the additional expense
would pile up the millage. will be
threshed out pretty thoroughly, it is
expected, and among the more im
portant items are:
The introduction of domestic sci
ence in the high school at a cost of
$5,200; providing an additional $2,000
for new textbooks; hiring of extra
teachers for the high schools and the
grades, and the increasing of the su
pervisor's staff from two to five, at a
ost of approximately $9,400.
Other items must necessarily be
provided for and it is not likely that
there will be any question raised
about the increa.se, for instance, of
the item for paying the teachers, the i
fund to be set aside for teachers' re-!
tirement, interest, taxes, etc., and sink- I
ing funds, and the $2,000 for the main- 1
ten a nee of the public library.
While there are increases in the I
items for the janitors, teachers, State !
taxes, interests, sinking funds, etc., I
the budget as recommended last even- j
Sng shows a decrease in certain in
stances. Among these are the funds
pet aside for buildings, the Technical
High School, and supplies and fuel.
Sources of Revenue
The whole budget, as suggested by
the finance committee, calls for an
expenditure of 5474,047.15, as against
5445.125.5S last year. The necessary
money will have to be raised from
the following sources:
Revenue from a valuation of $49,-
000,000 at 9'i mills. $416..'00; State
appropriation, $47,000: interest, $3,-
POO: personal taxes, $7,500; tuition.]
SBOO. In addition to passing upon the
budget, fixing the mill rate, and act
ing on the recommendation of the
textbook committee relative to the
adoption of new textbooks for the
grade' schools, the school board to
night will award contracts for certain
supplies, and adopt a resolution pro
viding for the $90,000 bond issue to
pay for the new grade school on Alli
son Hill.
If the domestic science appropria
tion item Is passed upon to-night the
plans for establishing this course in
the Central High School alone will be
started so that instruction in sewing
imd cooking may he begun In the Fall.
7t Is expected that the courses will be
taught in the high school.
While the finance committee last
evening was busy over the budget, the
textbook committee was wrestling
with the problem of adopting School
Superintendent Downes' recommenda
tions for new books.
Director Yates charged that the rec
ommendations. all of which were for
American Book Company products,
were premature in that there was am
ple time to make a wider selection.
Other book companies, he said, hadn't
had full opportunity to have their
samples passed upon.
Dr. Downes, who based his recom
mendations on reports he received
from the different teachers, insisted
that 'everything has been done fairlv
and everyone has had a square deal."
Director Yates questioned whether
the committee did not violate the
spirit, if not the letter, of the school
rode, In patronizing so fully the Amer
ican Book Company, when, as he put
It. 'we all know that two of the prin
cipals and the school treasurer are
agents of the American Book Com
In conclusion Dr. Yates tried to
have action postponed for 'sixty days
until other booking concerns could
have a better opportunity to place
samples of their books in the schools
and so give a wider opportunity for
teachers to vote. This was voted
tiown. only Mr. Yates himself voting
for it. The other members of the
committee are Directors Kennedy,
Kohl and Saul.
Dr. Downes said the teachers had
ample opportunity to vote upon the
sample books they preferred; that he
had notified tfiem some months ago.
He be'leves other book concerns, he
said, placed some samples In the

In announcing his appointees to
day Commissioner Bowman said his
purpose in selecting Dr. Zimmerman
was based on his worth as a phvsiclan,
a chemist and bacteriologist. Dr. Zlm

;be educated in the bacteriological
work under Dr. George R. Moffitt, the
city bacteriologist.

No Subway Decision
No definite decision was reached
yesterday by city counc.ilmen or the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company offi
cials relative to the Division street
grade problem. The city and
railroad officials conferred in the

John Brown began to "snuff coke"
in January, 1913. He then held a
place In a big bank. His salary was
S2OO a month, and there was every
indication that he would be promoted
regularly. At thirty years of age he
might have become an assistant cash
ier, and that position meant someihing
in the bank in which he worked.
But he liked his "coke." He found
he couldn't stop. He got so that he
had to slip oft' to 4 corner during
working hours and "snuff." He came
back to his desk and worked brilliant
ly after these expeditions. Every
time he was called in by ap official
of the bank to explain something he
took a "snuff." His mind worked ike
a finely made engine, and the officials
he met could not help admire him.

Senator Oliver Against
Panama Canal Repealer
Washington, D. C., April 3.—ln a|
statement on his position regarding'
the proposed repeal of the exemption
clause in the Panama Canal act United
States Senator Oliver, of Pennsylvania,
"After considering the subject from
every point of view I have decided to
vote against the repeal. I voted
against exemption in the last Congress
because it then seemed to me that it
was a violation of our treaty obli
gations, and I am one of those who
believe in sticking to a bargain, no
matter at what cost; but the subse- 1
quent discussion has convinced me
that this point is at least debatable,
with the weight of opinion in favor of
the contention that no violation of;
the Hay-Pauncefote treaty is involved, j
"Less than two years ago the Con- j
gress, by an overwhelming majority, j
decided In favor of exempting our own ,
coastwise shipping from tolls. That'
action stands as the settled policy of!
the American people.
"The principal objection of Great!
Britain to tolls exemption is not on,
account of the Canadian Pacific, as is j
commonly believed, but on account of I
the Tehuantepec Railway, owned by j
Cowdray. This railroad, due to the i
failure of the Mexican government to |
put up its share of the money, is now ,
practically under lease by Cowdray for i
fifty-one years, but at the end of that i
time it will pass into the hands of the j
Mexican government.
"It cost $65.000,000, practically all i
of which was put up by British capi- j
alists, and free tolls to American j
. oastwise ships, which includes the
ships running from New York to
Hawaii, would make that entire in
vestment worthless. Piercing the nar
:ow part of Mexico just above the
Yucatan Peninsula, it is only 190 miles
.ong. and is one of the most perfectly
equipped roads in the world."
