"The defendants Brown and Spellman

Trouble Forecast as Result of Mon
roe Doctrine and LTforts to Ex
tend Trade in Orient.
NEW YORK, Fob. 5. United States
Senator Lewis, of Illinois, speaking
here tonight at a banquet of the Hud
son County (New Jersey) Bar Associa
tion, predicted that at the end of the
world war the first important alliance
for commercial purposes would be be
tween Great Britain and Germany.
"As against America and her com
mercial advance in the Orient and
South America." ho said, "Germany
and England will be one united oppo
sition." Senator Lewis declared there was not
one friendly nation in tho world that
would give a Ufe or expend a dollar
out of any spirit of affection or regard
to preserve any interest of ithe United
States. Our future troubles, he de
clared, would result from our attempt
to enforce the Monroe Doctrine.
In the Orient, Senator Lewis said.
Japan and Russia would form an alli
ance against American encroachment
and also to oppose territorial acquisi
tion by Germany, England and France.
Senator Lewis declared it is the duty
of tho lawyers of this country to
preach patriotism to the people.

Not the practical education that waa
the rule at Dotheboys Hall, but in-
structlon on a somewhat similar li"1.
it was shown yesterday, was the hobbj
of Professor J. Willis Jefferis. former
teacher of English at Franklin High
School, now under suspension, who
wa placed on trial before the School
Board yesterday as to whether or not
he should be dismissed.
For Professor Jefferis declared his
emancipation from textbooks and from
established, time-honored ' rules of
pedagogy. Instead of having his classes
spend months pursuing the dry " rules
of English composition, he chose rather
to lead them into tho pleasant paths
blazed by popular authors.-
Te it books Called "Tommyrot."
On one occasion, as ho bade the class
lay aside their textbooks and take ur
"The Tale of Two Cities," he was quot
ed as having said:
"We will now turn aside from that
tommyrot and get into gome real Eng
lish." Trofessor Jefferis would have mado
a better artist man a Doiamsi, 101 no
would more enjoy the perfect flower
at its brightest than to dig into dull
books and learn the scientific terms for
stem, leaf and petal.
"Brains were made before textbooks.
We don't need many textbooks but
will get along without ihem," was an
other saying charged against him at
yesterday's hearing, and this, too, was
accounted a heresy.
Magazine Stories Read In Classes,
'rrofessor Jefferis, 'it was charged
by Professor I. A. Melendy, head of the,
English department at Franklin High,
and the accused teacher's superior, had
a penchant for the short story with
human interest, such as fills tho popu
lar magazines. These he read to his
elasses and then had the pupils re
count the essence of the tales to him.
"The teaching of journalism was his
one idea,'! said Professor Melody, "not
Journalism as it is popularly under
stood, but the short story, and he
thought the best way to , teach Eng
lish was to' have them read stories
rather than to pour over rules of

gave the same instruction to his first,

or how I shall teach it. I am an exw
