Ed. Ledger-Sir, In yesterday issue  was an article signed "Trustee"  in which he has ������made not only a  feeble, but an amusing effort to answer my letter in last Saturday's issue I might first say in answer to  "Trustee" that I did not ask him  for an answer, but i nsisted that my  answer come from the whole board  in which case the secretary should  hare signed the article designed to  be the answer. But I find that so  far they have ignored my questions  and statements after I have acted  in an open and above-board manner  by signing my name to my letter,  and did not try to conceal my identity as "Trustee" has done. Why?  Because the statements I made I believe the Board of ^Trustees cannot  truthfully deny and I give them  credit only this far-for maintaining  silence- if they dont want to come  out and present a clean sheet  for the New Year by ackowledging  that the system that they have been  running our school by has been a  cause for dissatisfaction, they are at  least gentlemanly enough to not  call a man a liar behind a nom de  plume and try to make the public  believe it, if they cannot prove their  assertions. Now "Trustee" concludes his letter by saying "Be sure  you're right, the "go ahead"  So here goes, I am sorry that  "Trustee" stands on such slippery  ground, as the others have to stand  with htm. Trustee says that Inspector Wisou told the Trustees, [I  presume he means the whole board]  on his last visit, that "Miss Milligan might make a teacher. ''I  don 't hesitate for a moment to tel  Trustee that I believe Jhis statement to   be   an   utter   falsehood.  How    could  the    Inspector  make  such a  statement when   he   knew  she held a 2nd grade life certificate  and was already a teacher?   Such a  statement would,   to say  the least  be very ungentlemanly,  let   alone  ignorant aud absurd.    Did not seventeen out of nineteen pupils pass  their examinations to a higher division, and   was not  Miss   Milligan  complimented by the Principal   f..r  the efficiency of  her  room?    Aud  all she g. 't was the  paltry   sum  of  forty dollars per month.    Aud yet  Trustee would    try   to    insinuate  that my statement that Miss Milligan was   an eminently    qualified  teacher in    every  particular, was  not    true,    because   she   had   not  taught over five months.    His obscure mind failed to make a note of  the fact that she  qualified herself  for life before  she began teaching.  I defy him !to deny the above facts,  consequently  he   cannot be taken  too seriously.    Now, Mr. Trustee,  did not three teachers,  I only mentioned one before, in   lower grades,  receive fifty dollars,   fifty-five and  sixty dollars  respectively, and   did  not hold as good certificates,   while  Miss  Milligan  only  received forty  dollars.      I   intend to let  the ratepayers see just who is the liar in the  case and let them judge whether it  is you or I.     I care not whom  you  may be.  Trustee does not state what I  stated in my letter [compare their,  please] about the Divisions. He has  distorted the facts and what he states  is misleading. I did not say the  trustees ha.I no right to close No. 2  Division. I simply asked "why it  was done; and Trustee in attempting in his feeble way to explain the  'why" entirely forgets that I con  tended in my former letter that 110  matter whether it was No. 2 Division or any other number which was  closed, that does not alter the fact  that Mr. McDonald is first assistant-  Miss Coburu is second assistant  and Miss Milligan was third assistant. I hereby challenge Trustee  aiid the whole Board to truthfully  deny my statement,'and I asso challenge them';'��������� to deny'that the above  names were not sent in to lhe Educational Department as 1st., 2nd.,  and 3rd assistants. When Miss Milligan first came did she not.begin to  teach No. G Division? and who was  it tljat appointed her to a higher division? Whcr you one of, the . shifting  instruments in that game, Mr. Trustee? Did *iot Miss MiUjgan .apply  ���������by. letter for a raise of salary, and]  did not a Trustee assure her that  sae would et it anyway, and asked'  her to withdraw the letter? and was',  not  the     receiver, of    the  letter in-lfa,  ��������� whv  ay- applicable   to the    new   teachers,  uarion.        A code of by-laws  for the  new teachers, and a few plain, good  wishes and private resolutions for  the old ones; who ever heard tell of  such a thing? Enough has been said  and. I think the ratepayers will be  satisfied that my previous intimation regarding sliding scales of-  wages has. been amply admitted by  ! "Trustee". Itis no  pleasure      to  j nip  to; t-arry'}      on  this   controversy  land   1  am sorry there has been cau-  se   for it,   but as  a lo-ver    of     justice and ��������� Cairi  play,      I   will    'defend  my  guns  till  my  questions  are fully  answered   through  the propee     channel,   and   this  cause of  dissatisfaction" removed from the  teaching staff.  Because,    where      would   ithe   pupils  coni|p������ from   to fill  the division   that  i has  been closed     were it   re.oneiwd?  and      which    'Trustee'' says, may be  opened  soon.
