EDUCATION BOARD IS GRILLED: AT MEETING Opponents Declare Vote on Union District Blocked by Local Officials. THE chamber of commerce last night declared its endorsement of the proposed poly high school bonds. Sentiment was not unanimous, but it was almost overwhelmingly strong, ytd the meeting was largely attended. Strenuous opposition was voiced by N. A. Richardson, James Russell, W. R. McNeil and S. W. McNabb, all of whom declared for the union school project, but among the 60 or 70 voters present support for the resolution endorsing the bond issue was perhaps five or six to one in the majority, the supporters of the present bond issue including Noah Adair, George M. Cooley, Judge W. J. Curtis, W. S. Boggs, W. C. Sec-combe, M. B. Shaw and others. A feature of the meeting was the presence of a Colton delegation composed, of. Judge J. B. Hanna, President . H. Reed, of the board of city trustees, F. H. Owen, Seth Hartley and M. O. Hert. Judge Hanna was the only one of these to participate and he ipoke only upon invitation, declaring that Colton still very much favors the Union High school plan, "but we have the kindliest feeling for San Bernardino, and if your people think that conditions make It necessary for you to establish your own school, we can only wish you well, and hope for your . success," said he.
