says he does not believe they under

"We had nothing against Mrs. Fra

engaged Miss Tyler to fill the vacan

ting released from the work she was
engaged in. I don't think the children

Thursday they were much excited, bu
the trouble has had time to blow over
and everything seems to have been
adjusted. Of course we have no in
tention of keeping Miss Tyler from
the place she was elected to fill."
The children said last week they
had procured a list of 150 names o
those who desired to protest Mrs. Fra
