GO TO HASTINGS
From WedneeJay'B I5aUr.
The situation In the long-standing
controversy over the superintendency
of schools at Hastings seems, to have
been reopened by the resignation of
Superintendent C. W. Barr from his
office, as a result of the failure to
carry out plans of the superintendent
to enlarge the school, and now the se
lection of a superintendent is facing
the citizens of that place. The name
of Superintendent Wr. G. Brooks of
this city is mentioned as the most
prominent for the office, as the friends
of Mr. Brooks have urged his name,
although he is not an active candidate
himself for the position, and as at the
previous selection, the opponents of
the late superintendent seem to have
fixed on Mr. Brooks as the leading
candidate for the position made vac
fnt by the resignation of Mr. Barr.
Mr. Brooks has been elected here for
another term, and it is not known
whether he would accept the position
at Hastings, although it is a much
more lucerative position from both
