New York, Sept. 11.—Furniture pur-

Professor Putnam nml President
? Beall explain'd In a clear and com
prehensive manner the grave dlflbul
li-s that confront' d the hoard. The
i former asked for explicit Instruction
from the trustee* a - to wlmt he
should do. Tin point at Issue as
simply and eonelsely slated is this:
At some of the schools there arc more
pupils than can be accommodated.
This Is especially true at the Me a
school. The Sunset sehool, to whleh !
some additional scholars have al
ready been sent. Is now practically
full. The Mesa school Is overflowing.
After n thiirougli consideration the
hoard decided It would work n great
hardship to require pupils from that
district to go as fur as the Alamo
school, where about Iftfl more m hoi
ars can |k accommodated, so sonic
of the extra pupils from there were
assigned to the Central sehool and
children from the vicinity of the lat
ter school abovi the fourth grade
were directed to report to ijjo Alamo
school. The hitler Institution is out
of the host and most conveniently
equipped school building* In the city
and the teachfe* are regardi-d as
among the most efficient and compe-
tent In the entire corps of Instructors.
Until the bonds are sold the work
of constructing the new buildings can
not he begun. The hoard has so far
done everything In this direction that

ance with Instructions embodied in
a resolution passed by the hoard and
publish'd In last Wednesday's Times.
The plan is only a temporary expe-
diency adopted to relieve tin present
congested rondillnn of some of the
schools until the new buildings can

Mr. Fink slated that he had pur-

of being near the Central school,
and he regarded It ns a hardship Hint
his little daughter should he sent

tallroad irncks Further tin re were
had buys In that vicinity, so It was
net proper that young girls should
go there alone. If the had Isiys were
not there now tl was because they
had all been sent to the penitentiary.
Mr. Fink added that if Ids child could
not go th- Central school he would
have to pay her tuition at a private
or the Catholic school,
Mr. Major stated that when hi*

to walk much farther Ilian any of

the reflections that had be: n cast on
the Alamo district. Mr. Newman
called attention to the fact that the

than in the Alamo. The peoph in
that vicinity wi re Just ns orderly and

They were proud of their school,
whleh was one of the best in Hi Paso,
and there was no reason why chil-
dren going there should not be as
will treated and enjoy Just as great
advantages a* at any. other school
Prior to Mr. Newman's remarks
the ladies were Invited to offer any
suggestion* they might think of that
would relieve the present condition.
Mrs. Wells asked if rooms could
not tie temporarily rented to accom-
modate the (hlldfen in the Men* dig
triet so that thorn- around the Central
building could enjoy their own school.

Th# cruiser Maryland was author-
ised by congress along with the West

Cramps, The new ships have the in-
vulnerability of n battleship, with the
speed of a first class cruiser, and com-
pare favorably with the heat vessels
of foreign powers.
The principal dimensions of the

From present Indications it is hoped
that the cruiser will lm completed and

further sales to hotel linen at wholesale
rates will be considered an "unfriendly
act" and treat'd accordingly.
Tin- manufacturers do not relish
what they term the attempted dicta-
tion of the retailers and say they will
make sales at such price* to hotel men
as the trade warrants. On the side
rf the manufacturers the claim Is set
up that hotel furniture is. In a meas-
ure, a class by itself; that the buyer Is
not purehaslng for his own personal
use. or profit, Imt for tin- accommoda-
tion of the public; that no private Indi-
vidual buys or can he expected to buy
on tho scale or In the quantity that
the hotel man does; that In: is to .ill
Intents and purposes a wholesale buy
or. and In consequence Is entitled to
the same consideration.
The retailers’ association claims that
the hotel man purchases for Ills own
use and for tils own house; that In af-
fording him wholesale rates the mnmi
faelnrers are deliberately discriminat-
ing against the retailers and taking
from the retailers a considerable
source of profit; that such action will
not be further tolerated, and that the
maritifaetiirers who recognise the re
tailors’ rights will receive the hulk of
the trade. The situation has assumed
so serious a phase that It is now pro-
posed that a meeting of committees

ers' association and the National Re-
