BUFFALO EVENING NEWS: SATURDAY, MARCH 7, J9031 supt. skier's'' stro;;g defenseof the merritt bill Able, Reply to Gross Misrepresentation ; and Bitter " Personal Attacks.' OPPOSES POOR SCHOOLS, :N0T SMALL SCHOOLS. Merritt Bill' Would Not Deprive the Regents of One : Prerogative They . Now Enjoy. ALBANY. March T.-Hon. Charles R. ' Skinner. State Superintendent of Public Instruction, has 'issued . the following statement to me publlci .- Jiducailoual activity along' right lines la helplul. Agitation of educatioual ques-Uona toundea on Jealousy and misrepresentation produce unrest and discontent ' I sincerely deplore the present unfortunate misunderstanding of the educational tlttiatlcu at the Capitol. It is an intolerable condition for which this department Is in no sense responsible, but I realise that w are subject to unjust Criticism as the result of gross misrepresen- . tations which have been Industriously circulated throughout the State. . As the State Superintendent of Public Ini.truo.Uon, and as a member of the Board of Regents, 1 dee re to place before friends of education through the public press a plain statement of facts to correct these misrepresentstlons. At the University convocation In Julv. ISM, and In my snnual report to the Legislature which followed, I advocated 8tate payment of non-resident tuition In amit. emic department In the following words: , "I would enlarge the scope of the Hlgh School and make It absolutely free to; ail pupils, providing by State aid for ad-, vantages now secured only by payment of tuition. Every child should be educated free In the High School nearest to him. There should be no favoritism or distinction." Through myself snd other representatives of this department, the subject has been presented again and again at teachers' Institutes and other educational gatherings. I am not aware that a similar proposition had been advanced from any other source. I am not aware that the proposition had ever been opposed. FROM TUB FREE SCHOOL FUND. In mv reoort to the Lecialitun. lajit January I asked authority for the distrlb- ' uuun ul i9w,uw tor mis purpose trom ! the free school fund, which ha always been distributed through this department, and at the opening of the Legislature a bill was Introduced embodying my recommendations. My snnual report had not reached the press before Chancellor Doane Issued a public statement denouncing the proposition, and the Regtita immediately raised the cry that they had been attacked! The plan proposed would take from the Regents no right, privilege or prerogative now enjoyed by them. The "right of visitation would still remain with them. The right conferred by law to distribute special funds would not be Interfered withrhe right to conduct prescribed examinations would not be disturbed. No academlo department registered with the Regents could have its charter annulled or endangered. If the so-called Merrltt bill should become a law tomorrow Jt would provide (or the State payment of non-resident tuition,- to Insure to the boys and girls of the rural districts the acad-emie training whieh H is their right to enjoy and the' duty f the State to furnish. Following the outcry that they had been attacked by the Introduction of the Merrltt bill, came a manifesto from the Regents, generously offering to assume con-' frol of the whole public school system! i There is friction between the department ', and the Regents therefore abolish the de-: pertinent! Aa a measure of retaliation a Mil Is now brought forward giving the Regents control of the whole educational scheme of the Bute by empowering them to elect the State Superintendent-placing the control of the public schools In a body elected for life, no member of which 1 has ever been elected became of any recognised service to education, or because of any experience In public school work, thus removing the schools ss far away from the people as It is possible to place them. ; DISGRACEFUL POLITICS. Hence all this agitation. Responsibility Should rest where It belongs. I repeat what I have heretofore said concerning the attitude of the Regents; ' Assuming to be afraid of political Influence In the school system, poll lies of a most disgraceful character has entered Inte the discussion of this question politics of a disgraceful character for the reason that it hat consisted largely of personal vitu-.peratlon, untruthful atatemenu and false Issues." .Let me add the following conclusions: 1 No district will or can be deprived of Its academic department through pas. sage of the Merrltt bill. a I am not opposed to small schools, but to poor schools. 1 would make It possible for the small school to become a larger school and would make It necessary for the poor school to become a good school. 11 most heartily favor secondary education, tout ho'.d that thorough elementary training la of prime importance aa well fo the few who enter a high school as for the many who d not. and I therefore Insist that elementary education should not be sacrificed for advanced work, but that all departments should , receive adequate consideration. My record of 17 years In this department shows that I have labored earnestly to 'build up all departments of the public school, to elevate standards, Increase the efficiency of teachers and to secure more '.,- liberal appropriations for school purposes. ; HIGH EXCELLENCE ATTAINED. I The State Superintendent has by legislative enactment greater powers ever public secondary schools than over public elementary schools, notwithstanding the .' statement ss to the Regents' exclusive - Jurisdiction over the former. The standard of excellence attained by the secondary schools ef the State 1 largely due to the high grade of teachers which has .been provided through the various institutions for professional training and the uniform licensing system; to the Improved condition of buildings and grounds; to 'the enforcement of school laws all agencies under the exclusive supervision ef this department; to the encouragement and counsel given boards ef education and te the general uplift to public education resulting from the Intimate relations existing between this department and the puhlic school )n every branch ot lis activity. 5 Should the proposition providing for State payment of non-resident tuition in academic departments be defeated It will be due to the Jeaioua opposition of a body which hss heretofore laid exclusive claim te all encouragement gives to secoadary education. 6Th statements circulated by the opposition regarding the recent hearing are maliciously perverted or entirely false, as may be clearly proved from the official r- nnU and by the testimony ef the mem- nf tne Way and Means Committee , .

TWO TREATIES BUSINESS OF THE EXtjiSESSI, Panama Canal and Cuban Reciprocity Are to Be -Settled. PANAMA TREATY v-v-WILL BE PASSED. Outlook For Favorable Action on Cuban Bill Not So Bright. (Special Dispatch to the Evening News) WASHINGTON. D. C. March 1. N'ow that a special session of the United States Senate has been called by President Roosevelt, and is already under full headway, It may notbeunlnter. esting to note Just what la likely to be accomplished by the session, and how long It Is likely to continue. The two most Important matters of business that are expected to result from the special session, are the ratification of the Panama Canal and the Cuban reciprocity treaties, which two treaties are the sole and only cause ot the calling of the special session. As Is well known, the Panama treaty has the almost unanimous support of the Senate, Senator Morgan,' who has for many years been the strongest In that body "of an Isthmian canal, being, strange to say, the only outspoken opponent of the pending treaty. But for his opposition, manifested during the last few days of the recent session by his long-drawn-out speech against the treaty, It wuVld have been ratified before the close of the S7th Congress. Sen ator Morgan la now expected to start In at once on another of his "long distance" speeches, and as there will be plenty of time, no effort will be made to stop or hinder him, and It Is hoped that after a few days of .'"debate" he will conclude to quit . and allow the treaty to come to a vote. When that time comes, the treaty will easily command much, more- than a two-thirds vote, and thus be ratified without difficulty. The outlook for favorable action on the Cuban treaty Is not so bright. In fact, the scope and extent of the opposition can not yet be determined. A few weeks ago it was widely announced that much of the opposition to this proposition, which stood so stubbornly In Its pathway a year ago, for which the best sugar Interests were largely responsible, had been overcome by th President and his advisers. If this Is true, together with the other fact that the treaty gains several votes by the changes juat made In the membership In the Senate, the Cuban treaty ought to be ratified within a few days, and without any real trouble, as Its friends believe it will be. It is not believed, therefore, that the opposition to either treaty will be very strong or Very long continued. OTHER TREA TIES PENDING. Other treaties that will undoubtedly demand and receive the attention of the Jxlra session, are the extradition treat-es with Venezuela and Mexico; and perhaps the " reciprocity treaty with France. A few nominations are likely to be sent to the Senate and confirmed during the continuance of the session. Some of these will undoubtedly be new nominations, while others will be In cases where the Senate failed to act during ihe recent session.. The mars noted of these cases are .the nomination o( the negro. Dr. , Cum. wno was ..nominated for Collector ot Customs at Charleston, S. C; the nomination of William M.' Byrne for District Attorney of Delaware; and the nomination of ex-Representative Page Morris, as a District Judge for the new district created in Minnesota. . Adverse reports were made tp the Senate on the first two cases, but the Senate took no sctlon on the reports. The President does not thlnk-the fight made on Crum was justified and so will renominate him. Byrne, who had been District Attorney for some time, resigned last summer to run for Congress on the Addicks or anion Republican ticket. ' ,.He was defeated, hew-ever, two Republican tickets being In the Held, snd a Democrat -was elected. After the election President Roosevelt nominated him for hla,old position, but the light on Addicks 'as at that time so bitter that an adverse report was made by the Judiciary-Committee. No action was taken by the Senate toward election, however, and now that the Delaware Republicans have gotten together and elected two Republican Senators, thus practically settling their long-standing family row, there will be no further fight on Byrne when his name Is again sent to the Senate for the attorneyship. -Mr. Morris' nomination was not acted on, or even reported an, because ef the fact that he was still a member of the House, and was thought not to be ellg- THE EFFECT NEURALGIA HAD ON A TOMAN FACE, ,' Bnt With the 114 ef Dr. WtUUsas- flak Pills She Was Baablea M free Het : self From gaSutag saut Is - ' M Well. . . .,; . v "For a year I suffered the agonies of neuralgia, my face and head nearly withered from the pain and I found na relief till I tried Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People and was cured " This Is the statement made by Mrs. J. B. Whittlesey, of Turin, N. Y. Her neighbors can verify the truth of it. "In the winter of 1900," she con. tlnues, "my general health was poor and I began to suffer with neuralgia, I tried three different physicians, but they did not help me; In fact, ! grew .worse. I suffered untold tortures with the pain In my face and I don't know what I should have done If I had not acted on the advice of a friend and taken Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. In three days after beginning with them the pain began to grow less and after tak ing three boxes the neuralgia had entirely disappeared. Since then I have not had even a touch ot the pain.

We employed the best doctor, but hie efforts were of little avail. She could not keep anything on her stomach, could not sleep and she wasted to a shadow. We pro. cured a bottle of Palne's Celery Compound for her. Its use gave grand and wondrous results. She soon slept well at night, got stronger and her appetite returned.

Now that the Fifty-seventh Congress has passed Into history, a few after thoughts regarding its doings and failures to do may prove of Interest to the NEWS readers, and are here given: In a word, the total appropriations made by that Congress amount to tl.'t WL1(MJ!. aaiiist tl,4,p.a.43S in- th Ftfty-slxth Congress, while the ISO,. fJOQ.Opa appropriated for. the Isthmian canal accounts for about one-half of tne increase, Among the important bills that failed In one or both Houses, are the Omnibus statehood bill, which proposed to ad mit to statehood the territories of Aid sona, New Mexico and Oklahoma; the Ship Subsidy bill; the Aldrlch-Fowler Currency bill', the Philippine Tariff bill; the Pure Food bill, and many others. On the other hand, the recently-ended Congreaa has dealt with more great subjects, and has enacted more legislation of far-reaching importance, man tny congress for many years. 1 The Naval Appropriation bill just passed, carries nearly W2.000.0OO, and Is the largest in the history of the (government. The faet is partly explained by the statement that five great battle-1 ships were ordered, three of them of 11.000 tons burden, and two of 13,000 tons each. For the last hour and a half before the final fall of the gavel.

In the chair he seemed an entirely different man, was afflicted with what is knowp as '-stag fright,'! handled the gavel ; with bis. left hand, recognised members by extending his right arm at full length and with his forefinger extended, as is his habit when speaking, and, in short, showed that he was work' Ing harder than when making one of his fiery and Interesting speeches. - Representative Sherman of New Tttrk Is the only man In the House who combines a fine voice with an expert knowl. edge of parliamentary law and all the requisites ot a good presiding officer. The Sherman voice Mr. Cannon can never posse, but a little practice is expected to materially Improve him in all that goe to make an acceptable presiding officer. That he will make a popular and successful Speaker, no one doubts. . , The Democratic filibuster .' In the House during the last few days ot the session has not had Its equal einca the 60th Congress. Then the House was tied' up by a proposition to appropriate $20,000,000 for the payment of Civil War claims,- and for eight days the House did not adjourn, but recessed from day to day. During that period hher were more than 100 roll-calls, while during the recent filibuster there were about 85. Ki each roll-call consumes about a half hour, the performance of the last few days has again revived the talk about voting by machinery. The House Is now waiting anxiously for some Inventive genius to perfect some sort of a recording machine that will be both quick and accurate. In view of the faet that Speaker Henderson was retiring forever from the House where he had served as a member for SO years as a Speaker for four, his farewell speech had In it mueh that was sad and pathetic. It was no won-tr, therefore, that his voice slmoet 'ailed him, and he was visibly affected as he tried to say the last words he would ever utter aa a member of Con-rressv.. . , . . ; ' ' ROCHESTER HAS J PUREWATER AHD . , JOJYPHOIO, (Continued fro so page L) . The former reservoir, nine miles south' of 'the city and situated upon a high hill, has a capacity of (1,000,000 gallons at a depth of tt feet. . DISTRIBUTING RESERVOIR. The distributing reservoir, bulK on a lofty eminence In Highland Park, about two miles from the center ot the city, at a death of IS feet, holds 22.KAO Ann ml. Hons. Another reservoir, designed to hold lu.uw.uuu ganons, win soon be ouilt upon Cobbs Hill, not far from Highland Park, and having an elevation equal to it In the distributing reservoir is a fountain through which the water Is forced by its own gravity from the Rush reser. voir, and on clear days the lofty column can be seen sparkling on the high hills like a flashing shaft of glass. The water Is aerated by this process. The necessity for the second and larger distributing reservoir arises from the fact that as the population of the city Increases the dally consumption, of course, follows In a direct ratio. Previous to the construction of Conduit No. 1 there was a shortage of water. Since Rs construction, the consumption has Increased at the average rats of about 6O0,0fl0 gallons a year, or from S.818,000 gallons In 1896 to about 14,000,-000 gallons In 1902 for 170,006 people. In this period the average annual Increase In population has been figured out st 2226, so that It csn be roughly stated that the dally consumption of water Increases at the rate of I2S gallons dally for each single addition to the population. The consumption varies during the year, being highest in February of the winter months, and, of course, much higher during the not days of July and August Taking the supply of one week in July, 1900, the following figures have been obtained on the dally consumption per oaplta: From midnight to 5 o'clock In the morning. 60 gallons: from 6:30 o'clock to f o'clock. 0 6 gallons ami over; from S o'clock to noon, the same general level Is held; at noon there is a sharp decrease: then, from 1 P.

Of these" plans Nos. 4 and 6 were approved, and a contract was struck between the city and an organisation . th Ttncheater Water Com pany. Considerable work was done In building reservoirs' and laying conduit and distributing pipes, but In 1872 the company collapsed and th project wat hung In the air. A Board of Wate Commissioners was appointed the next year, ana mucn sniiiy-anauyuig lowed. At last, In March. 187J, A. S. Mann, a prominent business man of Rochester, and afterward for many years City Auditor, drew up -a mandatory ptltlon urging the commissioners to decide upon the us of Hemlock tjake water for domestle purposes and upon the river water for fire an! manufacturing purposes, and to set to work Immediately. This petition was signed" by thousands of tax. payers, and the commissioners began . , , 1L. V. ,n mMM nn.L . W nai IS now ma immicbiw "bwi system. For a time it was feared that the scheme of using river water for both purposes would be adopted, and hints of Jobbery and grabs wer frely thrown out The prompt action of these cltliens saved Rochester from fate which has overtaken many another municipality, and gave to her people the purest and most perfect water works system In this country. It Is probable that before many years Was passed. Caned lc Lak. a sheet ot water lying near Hemlock, and as pure and clean, will be brought Into use as an suxlllary supply source. Already the elty has obtained options on much of It shore line. The purity of Hemlock water I kept st Its high standard only by constant vigilance. The slty now owns not only th water and lake bottom, but also th entire circumfer ence of th shore tor a distance of 200 feet back, with th exception of eleven holdings, which , are, unobjectionable from a sanitary standpoint. The city has a force of men constantly at the lake whose duty It Is to carry away and bury by the "pall system" all rat-fuse trom buildings and cottages which stand back from the elty line along the shore. . . -. The result of this care Is seen In the fact that no epidemic or even sporadic eutbreak of any disease has ever secured In this city which could be traced back to Impurity In the water supply.
