Editor a Quot Justice to myself and friends impels me to respond briefly to doctor Brodwater a letter of grievance. Complaint and personal it smut gods in your columns of last week. During my Public school superintendency of the past twelve years this is the first complaint along this line although Many similar changes have been made from time to time. Neither have i been charged with narrow personal motives or vindictiveness by my opponents politically or otherwise. But let us to i tile answer of the doctors letter. The term of office of one Public school trustee in each District expires every year and the vacancy caused thereby is filled by the school trustee electoral Board composed of the county judge Commonwealth s attorney and superintendent of Public schools. These vacancies Are filled by re appoint meet of old trustees or election of now ones according to the necessities and demands of the respective districts and the views and wishes of the people. In Justice to my associates on said electoral Board i would state just Here that not in unkind word or main nation was said or made touching or. Brodwater a trusteeship. The Oyster Industry on the Bay Side and the Railroad through the Center of the county 1ms, As the 6chool census will show caused a very Large increase in the school population of sections which have in turn demanded larger and better school i ousts and More school appliances. Many complaints not preferred charges have from time to time and from session to session been made to me that said demands have been in Many instances ignored by the District Board Aud have asked that changes in said Board be made. Added to this or. Brodwater has on one or More occasions As have other school trustees casually asked me to have his name dropped and that he to excused from further school duty of account of Long service therein age a. So much for the action of the electoral Board. Now lets see what to even the most casual Reader looks like tie main Spring motive of the doctors letter evidently he has a Quot left Quot feeling and to a inductively Quot strike Back Quot is his first natural impulse then lie couples wit i it a sort of implied charge of neglect of official duty in not seeing my face in his Section since my last appointment and in not fax orig an appropriation of about Oue Hundred dollars to meet my incidental expenses in the discharge of my official duties said appropriation being a a unknown to my during this session not yet closed�?235 visits have been made to the Public schools of the county�?45 of which have been made to the 29 schools in Atlantic District. Is not this tie full quota to the doctors District touching the Quot unprecedented Bill of incidental or travelling expenses i am prepared to show by statistics and official school reports that it is almost a Universal custom All Over the state As shown by said educational reports for the county Aud District boards to said including those of my worthy and esteemed predecessor. 1 will further state that not one word of objection or complaint of said expenses was Ever made by District or county boards till the meeting of the latter in August 1897, and then Only by the Atlantic District. Tie trustees of All the other districts were convinced of the Justice of the claim and Atlantic alone refused to its proper proportion. These a incidental expenses Are made to cover Money paid out for stationery Stamps holding teachers examinations travelling expenses Etc., and to meet the insinuation that they have been excessive i will state that for the 12 years of my incumbency they have averaged less than seventy dollars or about fifty cents per school for each session. I Challenge a companion with other counties of similar territory and work. In conclusion or. Editor i will state that in voting for or. Brodwater a successor in office As school trustee in Atlantic District. I have Only exercised a off Ciul privilege and right. I have therefore nothing to regret or take Back. It is a matter of some Surprise that the doctor takes so seriously his Relief from an office at once onerous and in Ruiu negative and but for the implied charges referred to above and in order to set the action of the elec toral Board in the right Light i should not have deemed it necessary to inflict upon you and the Public this reply.
