Harry Orth Ray Hauser and Edwin Maloy. The entertainment committee was As follows Frank Brown Harry latimere and will Mccoy. The Board to protest against the Rule which in Force in the schools which in its operation As generally understood takes off five for every recitation missed. He in weighed very heavily against the Rule which he considers very pernicious. First because on children who Are sick in effect it operates to retard re covery keeping them in a continual worry Over the loss of a it Erc outage. I secondly because the Rule is Coer Cive and in effect operates to keep children in school when they Are inti imposed and ought to ii at Home. He cited cases where pupils developing infectious diseases fearing loss of i it or Cut age. Were constrained to remain in school until very ill thereby jeopardizing their own lives and exposing the other pupils to the contagion. Or. Scarlet said he was not before the Board to urge a return to the former Tost of final examinations. He did insist however that the Rule be mod ill de and he raised a question whether in the Case of pupils kept out of school by illness on their return taking up their studies and making the usual Good averages some plan could not be adopted whereby the boy or girl might paragraphs passenger bus went into River. The Pennsylvania Railroad bus at Berwick which carries passengers Between that town and the Pennsylvania station at Nesco it Eek yesterday morning about 7 30 of clock met witly a mishap which would have resulted seriously for at least some of its half dozen occupants and the Driver had these not jumped in time to save them selves. When the bus had reached the nes Copeck Side of the River on the ferry and had started up the Hill one of the horses was seized with a fit of obstinacy. The animal reared and plunged hacking the bus Down the Bank towards the water Edge and dragging its mate wit i it. The bus was occupied at the time by two men passengers besides the four ladies composing the Harmony ladies Quartetti who gave a concert at Berwick tuesday evening. The ladies la neoame terrified and in their alarm jumped from the vehicle to the ground. The two men More calmly followed their example. The Driver was powerless and the horses and bus went into the Stream. When the bus had reached the depth of several feet it upset and the passengers grips and suit cases were set adrift in the River. For a time it looked As if these we Ould he lost hut before they had time to sink or float far Down Stream they were All recovered. Some of them with their contents were badly damaged. The Cool water evidently had an effect on the vicious horse As both animals were led out after Thev had he permitted to pass and la obliged to stand examination Only in those branches or portions of the studies affected by the period of absence. A protracted discussion followed in which the members generally took part. They took or. Scarlet a Sugge Titus very kindly. They explained to the attorney the real difficulty of the problem that they Are facing taking care to show that the present system of marking was adopted As a substitute for the final examination which when it was in Force proved As big a bugbear to the Public As the present system. I r. Hark a took the View that the system of marking is imperfectly understood and is unjustly criticized. He denied that a a five is a taken off for being absent. The fact is lie said that the Pupil is simply credited with the time present full attendance counting a Hundred. When to is absent of course he receives no Mark for his recitations on the principle that the labourer receives no for work not done. After or. Scarlet s departure the subject was discussed in All its bearings nearly an hour being spent in this Way. The Board would like to please the Public which was so feel ugly and ably represented by or. Scarlet. At the same time it feels that its own experience and that of the faculty and Borough superintendent must not he ignored. The Board is considering the matter deeply and just what course it May decide to pursue in the premises will not be known for a Day or so.

A that governor Pennypacker of Pennsylvania and governor Pattison of Ohio As Well As prominent officials in other arts of the country were marked for death by a baud of anarchists was Learned yesterday when Washington county officials raided the Headquarters of a society of anarchists and found convincing proof that assassination had been planned the plot to kill the states chief executive was unearthed while the officers were Hunting for the murderers of Michael Sarrazola a wealthy italian who was mysteriously shot at Dunlevy this county last week. The incriminating evidence was discovered in an old shanty located in a dense swamp at Baird a Small mining town ten Miles East of Washington. Letters and papers were found which implicate anarchists at Paterson and other parts of the country and show that the plot was an extensive one. The first Clew to the conspiracy was obtained when George Barli an italian was arrested monday night near Biard charged with complicity in the Sarrazola murder. In his pocket was found a a on which had been drawn the plan of a Small House where evidently he and others had been meeting. Had not the local band bungled in this one respect the plot would probably not have been revealed. Far reaching conspiracy. Officers Are endeavouring to suppress the importance of their discovery but they admit they have evidence enough to implicate anarchists in All parts of the country. In the room where proof of the plot was discovered were found letters written to leaders of the local society by men from Paterson and other cities. These letters show that the Washington hand was delegated to get rid of Pennypacker and Pattison and similar hands in other parts of the country were entrusted with the assassination of other officials in their territories.

The fire which originated on the first floor damaged the Story above to such an extent As to Render the floor wholly unsafe in View of the weight that it is destined to carry and it was found necessary to replace it joists and All with new. The damaged Woodwork yesterday was nearly wholly removed. The Danville stove and manufacturing company has decided to build a Large fire proof building to hold the patterns. At any manufacturing Plant the patterns represent the bulk of value. Those at the stove works could not be replaced for much less than 30,000 and yet As is Well known at the recent fire they escaped destruction Only by the Mere turning of a hand. Under the circumstances it is thought Worth while to go to some expense in order to insure their positive safety. Accordingly it has been decided to erect an entirely fire proof building at a Point convenient to the foundry where the patterns will at All times be kept. Where the patterns Are stored at present on the second Story Quot of the Wing extending northward they Are neither Safe nor convenient. Additional room is needed in the warehouse and by removing the patterns to a safer place the space vacated can be used for storing stoves amp a.

Shepperson is utilizing the Timber in the cast House and the Eleva tor Shaft which he purchased at the Bessemer blast Furnace being dismantled in the erection of a barn on his farm Valley township to replace the one destroyed by fire a few months ago. The Timber is As Good As new and Many of the beams Are of extraordinary length. The trusses supporting the roof which Are held together by Iron bolts Are very easily taken apart and can be conveniently hauled to the farm where they will be put together again and used precisely Asiu the cast House. The big trusses sixth five feet Long lend themselves very conveniently to the construction of the barn which will be built on the old foundation and will be a very commodious Structure. The cast House is pretty Well dismantled. The elevator Shaft has not As yet been attacked. The High Structure contains a vast amount of Good Timber and will More than suffice to Complete the barn affording not Only heavy Timber but also weather boards. Want passes for hanging. Sheriff Riddell of Lycoming county says that next week he will solve the problem of How he will select from the 900 or More applicants the persons to whom he will give passes to the execution of James Salerno the murderer of Elizabeth Carney which will take place at Williamsport on february 8. The sheriff will cull out the ones that he thinks proper to refuse and passes will be Given to the writers of the applications that Are not elevated to the waste Basket whether the number be Large or Small. A i will have no idea How Many passes i shall Issue a states the sheriff. A until i go through the big pile of applications in my Possession. The number is increasing too.

Officer was in this City yesterday endeavouring to detect the party guilty of setting fire to freight cars in the Yard of the structural tubing works. The latest attempt at incendiary so in the structural tubing Yards was made on tuesday when Only timely discovery prevented a valuable House car from being consumed by fire. It was a few minutes after 7 of clock in the morning when the car which was standing near the Mill was discovered burning the flames having already gotten a firm hold upon the Woodwork at one Comer. Several Buck its of water in the hands of the workmen sufficed to extinguish the flames. A few minutes More however and the car would have been enveloped and other property belonging to the structural tubing company probably set on fire. The car will have to be partially rebuilt. Scarcely two Mouths have elapsed since the other fire in the same Yard when a House car was nearly half destroyed and the fire department was called out. Both fires seem to have started in the same Way. In one Comer of an empty car. On the first occasion an empty sin Oke stained bottle that had contained kerosene was found in the car. On tuesday there were no such Plain evidences of incendiary so but it is not doubted that both cars were wilfully set on fire although it is not Clear whether the motive was spite or the fire was started by a Mere degenerate actuated by a love of mischief. The full problem will no doubt be solved by the detective. Winding up his business. John Hooley who Lias accepted a position As general manager with the Thatcher Furnace company at Newark n. J.

By february 1st he himself will follow entering immediately upon his new duties As general manager. Or. Hooley is unable to state definitely what the future will be of his conveniently situated and finely equipped Little Plant in this City. Just As he is about closing up he realizes that there is an unprecedented demand for the several lines of work that his foundry turns out. Every bit of the product is sold. Under the circumstances it would be a loss to the town if the foundry were to close up for the want of a Good experienced Man to take hold of it. It is hoped that some Means can be devised whereby the Plant can be kept in operation. It is a problem for the Board of Trade. A derelict ferry boat.
