great amount of tact; a quality much i
needed in the position. He gave good
satisfaction to the school board, and
seemed to be giving it to the society;
so everybody was surprised to learn a
few weeks ago that he had resigned.
The Star is informed that the mis

considerable friction between it and
Wiley for some time. He did not al always

Jos. L. Wiley is a northern born

of the white people and gain their
