Assistant Superintendent of High Schools A. r. Nightingale, and Aaalstaat Superintendent Deiano. la whose dla'rict the school In conference are. were also present. The last named preddrd. Superintendent Lane, at tbe request of the chairman, stated the object of the meeting. He said that for some time paat there had beea criticisms to the effect that too much distinction Is drawn between the high -school teachers and the teachers of the grammar grades. Critlclsme have also beea raised LLat there was no uniformity between tbe course of study pursued by tbe grammar aad high achool grades. Tbe result has oflea been. It I claimed, that some children are compelled to go over the same ground In the first year In the high school that they went over In 'be eighth grade. Other children have beea declared Insufficiently prepared, and have not beea able to keep up with the high-school work. Tbe effect of such misunderstandings has ba that a large number of pupils leave school during the first year of the high school. To find some wsy la which to harmonise tbe courses of study pursued In tbe eighth and ninth grade was the object of the meeting. Paper teprt eniattve of the views of the high-school teachers were resd by Miss Mary E Jones aa 1 Ml Sargent of Weat DlvUlon High School.

It w also complained that the number of atud-le pursued In tbe grammar achool waa o large for the time allowed that It waa found impossible to do good work and rendered It absolutely aeceaaary that no work cbould be duplicated. Principal Clayberg cf Wet DlvUlon High School aald that what waa needed in the grammar gradea waa that more time should be given to the atudy of geography aad grammar. Others thought the work In, English history was altogether too sever for the time that was given to tbe subject-No sction waa taken at the meeting, but tba auggeetloae offered will be conaldered by the superintendents of the school when they are revlalng the courses of study for the coming year. The building and grounds committee of the board of education yesterday afternoon did not refer to the subject of filters or pure water for the schools during the session of Its regular weekly meeting.

VYUlIeae r(k, YVba Had Beea ibel-af tba Deed. Milwaukee. Wla.. May 7. A double murder that may yet prove a quadruple murder waa committed at tha bom of Alexander Harrla, eouth of Waukesha, early this morning. Tbe crime waa committed, tt I supposed, by a farm hand named William Pouch, who bad been sheltered by Mr. Harrla over night- Tbe dead and wounded are: ALEJCANDKK HARRIS, aged 45; killed out ribt MR! HARRIS. aad 4: fatally wounded. HELEN VKdBACll. aired girl; eertoualy woundod. NELaON M'HOLT. hired maa; may die. Early last evening William Pouch, a farm hand who bad worked for Mr. Harrla two years ago. called at tbe house and requested lodging over night. He was taken in. gtvea supper, aad aaalgned a room. At S o'clock la the morning Mr. Harris and tbe hired maa arose aad weat to the yard to milk the cow. Mr. Harrla and tbe hired girl remained to prepare breakfast for the family. Pouch left his room quietly, and, goiag to tbe yard where tbe men were milk ing the cow, bad them good moraine. liar rla and the maa were alttlag on stools near each other, and before they were aware of any evil doing Pouch, it la claimed, drew a revol ver. and fired at the farmer, killing blm al most Inatantly. Tbe murderer then turned tbe weapon oa the hired man aad ahot him la the body. Indicting a probably fatal wound. The man fell motion lee a on th ground, and I "ouch evidently (uppoaed blm dead also. Ma Taak Tlaae ta Eat. Pouch then walked to th kitchen of tbe farmhouse. There be met Mrs. Harris and the hired girl, and chatted pleasantly with them for a few minutes. He aald that Mr. Harris would not be la for a few minutes, aod that be would eat his breakfast at oaee. After eating hi breakfast this morning Pouch aroso from the table and started to walk toward tbe door, but suddenly wheeled around, and. it la aald. before tbe women realised what waa about to happen, be abot Mrs. Hani In tbe breaat. and then fired at the hired glrL Tbe farmer's wife fell to tbe floor, fatally wounded, and expired soon afterward. The hired girl has a chance of recovery. After abooting his victims tbe murderer went up stairs and robbed the house. This is the only kaown motive of the crime. Tbe murderer thea mounted a bicycle and rode away. He started la a southwesterly direction over tbe Mukwenago road and the supposition I that be I beaded for Burlington. A poe of farmer soon larted in hot puiault. The farmera lo the vicinity of the scene of murder are greatly excited and ahould they get hold of the maa before tbe officers be may not live to tell of tbe crime. They openly vow that they will lynch blm. He May Be laaaae. The supposition of th authorities la that the man Is either Insane or that he committed the terrible deed la order to bide the evidence of another crime. Tbe manner la which tbe murder were committed show plainly that be had been dellberai in arranging bta plan and had carried them out to the latter. Mr. Harrla waa oae of tbe beat known farmers la the county. He had resided oa tbe farm where the murder occurred for the last twelve years aad bad always beea oa the beat of term with hla aeighbors.
