of the Indian troops who, he says, are
all anient for the cause for which the
king and his allies rue fighting. He says:
"To see fully a score of transports glide

OMAHA, Oct. 2.-To the Editor of Tho
Bee: The understgned,who were present
during the taking of the testimony before
the judiciary committee of the Board of
Education last July, In respect to the
charge, filed by three citizens of Omaha
against the principal of the Omaha High
School of Commerce, respectfully submit
the following statement:
In explanation of our attendance at the
trial we will say that 'iur attention was
called to the serious kiature of tho charges
and to the fact thai the hearing was to
be private aud the wltnessc admitted
and examined, separately. Knowing that
many women and girls, if required to ap
pear alone before a committee of men
to testify in respect to such matters,
would be greatly embarrassed and probably
would not have tho courage to slate all
the facts; and realizing lfw Important
the hearing was both to the public and
to the accused, we sought and obtained

Report of Three Women r
Who Attended School Hearing
permission from the Judiciary committee
, to be present.
Two of us were present at all sessions,
except one evening suasion at which boys
only were examined, and the third mem
ber of the committee was present at a
i considerable number of the sessions.
We agreed (among ourselves that, we
would wait until after the report of the
Judiciary committee had been filed with
the Hoard of Education and finally dis
posed of, beforo making any comment
on the testimony.
Had that report met with our approval
we should not consider It necessary to
make any statement, but as It not only
finds that the charges had not been s"-
ftulned by the evidence, but states that
"nothing was proved that would In the
least reflect upon the character, morals
or high standing of trie accused as a
gentleman and teacher"' we cannot let
It pass, as our silence would Indicate that
we agreed with the finding, which we de
While the evidence -wac not sufficient
to convict the accused of nny erlmlnal
act, and much of the test'mon wan ooiv
fllctlng, there, was a , large volume of
well-supported evidence not contradicted
except by the accused himself, which,- In
our opinion, clearly. established the fart
that the accused had on many occasions
been guilty of Indiscretions which should
not be tolerated In any .person holding a
position of trust and responsibility In
our public schools.
Considering the testimony as a whole
we cannot understand how it ran be
claimed that the accused habitually con
ducted himself In that manly, dignified
and upright manner so essential in every
teacher and head of ' department If our
public schools are to maintain their high
standard. It niunt be bom in mind Oiat
the working force must be above sus
picion or the moral tone of the schools
will certainly be lowered.
The subsequent dismissal of one and
the demoting of four of the teachers who
testified against the accused by a ma
jority of the teachers' committee of the
Board of Education, without the filing
of charges or the formality of a hearing,
compels us in Justice to say that, to the
best of our Judgment, the five teachers
who have been thus punished testified
truthfully and with the best of motives.
No one has questioned that all are wo
men of good moral' character, of high
standing In the eommui.lty and thor
oughly competent for the positions which
they have heretofore held.
