the CITY'S FINANCIAL STATUS. m \L STATEMENT OF EA- I'|;>DITIKES A (iOOD SHOWING. Expenditures* Hove Been Kept in pounds* During tlie First Six Months Honse Dralnaße find ponrd of Health Have Exceeded \p!ropr iations but With Good Henson— Strertu and Lane* and I’aving Apparently in Excess, hut l„rne Amounts* Due Both Accounts! for Street Inipro\emeutst and Side walk** the meeting of City Council yester ,]gl afternoon the second quarterly state ri,-;■.* of the year, showing the expendi t ( of the city departments for the six ni n s ending June 30, was submitted by ( l*rk of Council Bailey. The appropria (rk of Council Bailey. Th* showing is regarded as a very sat isfactory one, the number of appropria ton which are overdrawn being more than balanced by the number which are underdrawn. The house drainage account fhows the largest excess, the expenditures for this work bang $33.363.95, while the appropriation was only $75,000, showing d u excess of $18,303.05. This is due to the f (l rt that it was deemed advisable to push i c :,.use drainage work while all the con (]j;i r.s were favorable and the forces well organized rather than to leave the entire sy.'iem in an incomplete state. As matters ~ now nearly three-fourths of the sys tem is ready for use. Tli • appropriation for ihe streets and lanes is apparently overdrawn, but this is explained by the fact that $12,117.96 of :he amount represents expenditures for jch walks which amount is to be paid ba k into the city treasury. In the same manner the paving department appears to be overdrawn, but of the reported expen diture $16,897.38 represents assessments charged against abutting property own ers for street improvements which amount also to be repaid the city.

Tailor and Barber Made Fnn In a Magistrate** Conrt. A pair of patched trousers belonging to o colored barber, a dollar and a half bill for the repairs, and an irate tailor who rouldb’t collect, were the elements yester day in a magistrate's court of a first-class comedy that several times verged on the tragic. The tailor, the plaintiff, conducted his own case, which briefly stated, according to his side of the matter, was to the ef fect that a colored barber, the defendant, I ! brought to him to he patched, pressed " 1 otherwise renovated, a pair of trous ers which, when subsequently returned to him, he had kept for a length of time nnd 'hen disclaiming ownership had refuwed PJmen* for the work. The defendant averred that the trou "ts wore not his that he had not taken them to the tailor, and that he had at no ’hne promised to pay for them. Numerous wltnessts were put on the s'an.i by the defendant to prove that the Pursers belonged to one Jlnt Howard no : nger a resident of this city, and that ' -aid Howard had bought, paid fr, acd worn the trousers to a frazzle, of w hich the much discussed i atch in the r : ' was cited :n support. The court loom was crowded with spec tators, who derived no end of amusement Pent the plaintiff-lawyer’s cross examtna * e, of the witnesses, his appeals to the ft. the spectator*, nnd the jury, and J bitter invectives against the counsel the defendant, nil of which were to f'tp'd up together as to leave much room t”r doubt at times as to just what he was ’ liking about. But the crowning feature ' Pie performance came when the wlt for the plaintiff waa put on the "and It looked as though It would be a roiigfi house for some time, as the ques ' of the attorney as to the witnesses' ‘bihloyment brought forth an emphatic p cly that It waa none of his business, “ 1 upon the examination being continued 'he same line she first told the law p r that he was "sassy,” and then feeling ’ u an even stronger adjective was 'd'd to expiesa her feel asserted with flushing eyes ’bft he was ''cheeky.” This last epithet Sf med to strike her as being about the rl _' ,|i word with which to vent her Indlg- II Poti, for she retreated It several times v 1,1 growing emphasis, latter she hurl 'd 'ho lawyer the Information that * *** no gentleman, and tha If be con- “I’m Mirk* To jro anywhere with my face in this condition,” is the expression of a very natural feeling. To a beautiful woman an eruption on the face is the greatest of calamities, her very beauty seeming to increase the disfigurement. Ninety eight times in every hundred, eruptions are cured by Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery, and the skin recovers its maiden bloom and softness. " Golden Medical Discovery ” is a medicine which acts directly on the blood, purifying it, increasing its quantity and its rich ness. Eruptions, blotches, pimples, etc., are but surface signs of the corrupt blood current underneath. " Discovery” cleanses the blood, and so cleanses the skin. "For about one year and a half mv face was very badly broken out," writes Miss Carrie Adams, of n6 West Main St.. BaTtlecreek, Mich. "I spent a great deal of money with doctors and for different kinds of medicine, but received no benefit. At last I read one of your advertise ments. and obtained a bottle of Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery. Before I had taken one bottle of this medicine I noticed a change, and after taking three bottles I was entirely cured.” Dr. Pierce’s Pleasant Pellets keep the bowels in healthy condition. tinued to ask such questions she would come “down there and slap his face,” During this exchange of legal amenities the plaintiff took a wordy part, alternate ly upbraiding the lawyer, entreating the magistrate to put a stop to it, and com manding the witness not to answer. The lawyer and the spectators laughed out right, the magistrate and his officers pounded for order and the whole place was in an uproar. The trial lasted nearly two hours and a decision was finally rendered in favor of the defendant, the man who didn’t own the pants with the patch. THE WEATHER.

PUT IN A BUSY DAY. Continued from First Page. black man training coupled with the high est intelligence, in agriculture, the trades, the domestic arts as a foundation for citi zenship Thee© will -constitute the ground work for higher and more important oc cupations as the world judges. “But we. as black people and you as white people,, should remember, that mere material, visible possessions, however im portant, will not alone solve our problem, and that education of both races will be a failure unless we keep constantly before u.s the fact, that the final aim of all edu cation, whether industrial or academic, is to produce goodness of heart, honesty of purpose and that generosity of soul which will make us seek the elevation and free dom of all men regardless of class or race. The South will prosper in proportion as with development In agriculture, in mines, domestic arts and manufacturing, there goes that education which brings respect for law, broadens the heart, sweetens the nature and makes us feel that we are our ‘‘brother’s keeper” whether that brother was born in England, Italy, Africa or the Islands of the Seas.” Otlirrs Were Heard. President Joseph Swain, University of Indiana, spoke on “The State University.” The committee on nom : nations, which wa-s announced by President Corson at the morning session, will meet to-morrow at noon to make 'the nominations of officers for the ensuing year. Their report will be submitted to the convention Friday. ‘Nearly all of the departments held meetings during the afternoon. The kin dergarten educators held their first ses sion in Hibernian Hall. After the wel coming addresses, papers were read by Mrs. Clarence E. Meleney of New York; Philander P. Claxton of the State Nor mal College at Greensboro, N. C.. ami Miss Harriet Niel. director of the Hearst Kin dergarten, Washington. The department of secondary education heard a paper on the extent the pupil in the high school should be allowed to choose his studies, by William J. S. Bry an, principal of the High School, St. Louis. Oliver S. Westcott, principal of Jhe North Division High School, Chicago, read a paper on teaching pupils the cor rect use of the English language. The papers were followed by discussions, In which a number of educators partici pated. There was a good attendance at the ses sion of the higher education department and several interesting papers were read. The first speaker was President Charles F. Thwing, Western Reserve University, Cleveland. His topic was ‘‘The Satisfac tion of Being a College President.” Bfvnln on State Aid. President Joseph Swain, Indiana Uni versity, read a paper on ''State Aid to Higher Education.” He said, in part: "These are essential not only to the prosperity but oven to the existence of a free state. “The ultimate control of and the re sponsibility for education must rest with the state. "It is the function of the statfe to pro vide educational opportunities limited only by the ability of its citizens to embrace these opportunities. Has the .skilled phy sician most benefited himself or the com munity? Has the teacher most benefited himself or his pupils? Graduates of uni versities could not, if they w-ould, ap propriate to themselves the fru ts of their university training. The university Is sometimes opposed on ihe ground that It Is unjust to tax men of modest means to support higher Instruction, as none but the wealthy can go to college. Statistics do not support such a view, as more than half of the students in many of our state institutions are sons and daughters of farmers and mechanics. 'Hie state insti tution furnishes a common meeting ground where the young men and young women of the state are free from any in fluence except those accepted by the state Itself. It becomes a forum where the rising young men and wo men of the whole state may know one another and value one, another rightly. Can we not depend on wealthy men wholly to furnish higher education? This would be un-American. Wealthy men might grade our roads, build our court houses, conduct our courts, do anything for the public good, if the state ehotiH neglect these matters, or turn them over to private hands. But this would not release the people from their duty In the mutter. The people have safety only in Independence. The state can secure unsectarian Instruction, unpartison Institutions only by providing these Itself. This does not in the least disl>arage the existence of private and denomentlonal Institutions, but Indicates that these alone are not sufficient. "The great problem of our day, scien tific, historical, political and industrial, can best bo settled by those who hove spe cial training for their work. We are liv ing in an age when there Is a demand for re-examination of all things. We are not satisfied simply because a belief or cus tom had the sanction of our lathers. We are not willing to say that anything Is true or that any method is the best method until all the facts available are examined by those who know how to estimate the value of data. The modem university is an Institution' where all sub jects are considered of equal value and the great ambition of the teacher of each subject Is first to gain a complete mast try of his subject, and then to assist his stu dent to such mastery: and In the second place to contribute something to the sum total of human knowledge In his own line of work. The university does not do Its duty to Ihe state If it does not In some de gree at least widen the field of human knowledge. It js chiefly through the dis coveries and contributions of original workers that those facts and principles are discovered through which the stale seeks a more advanced stage of civiliza tion and culture.” Other Speeches suit Tapers. There was considerable discussion par ticipated in, mainly by. Chancellor Kirk- land of Vanderbilt University. Nashville, and President Baker of the University of Colorado. Normal school problems of the South were discussed by the department of nor mal schools. Among the papers read were those by Prof. Frissell, presi dent of the Hampton (Va.) Normal; Charles P. Molver. presiden of the State Normal at Greensboro, N. C. Hon. G. R. Glenn, superintendent of education for Georgia, and Booker T. Washington participated briefly in the discussion. Much interest was shown in the papers read at the department of child study. Miss Marion Brown of New Orleans had for her topic “Is There a Nationality Problem In Our Public Schools?” For tlie Afflicted. The departmen4 of education for the deaf, blind and feeble-minded held their opening session during the afternoon. Af ter President Wilkin?on of California had read his annual address, papers were presented by j. n_ Dobvns of Jackson, Miss.; N. F. Walker, Spartanburg, S. C\; Mjss Mary S. Garrett. Philadelphia; Dr. F. W. Booth, editor of the Official Edu cators’ Paper, and Mary Foster Wash burn© of Chicago. The library department was addressed by Miss Mae Schreiber of Madison. Wis., on how to direct children’s reading. The department of Indian education, opened its session July 5, adjourn ed to-day. The meetings have been well attended. During the sessions practical papers upon topics concerning tin wel fare of the red man were, read, and ad dresses made by eminent educators who have made the study of the Indian prob lem their life work. The keynote of the entire meeting was that the Indian must he made to work, and more attention should he given to industrial training. THE NEWS IHO>l >1 AC’OX.
