Brutal Remarks


Made by a Teacher Who Is Now Asked to Resign.

Special to the Daily Telegraph.

     Knoxville, Tenn., Sept. 12. C. F. Castiel, one of the leading teachers in Knox county, has been asked by the board of trustees, all Democrats, to resign because of these remarks to his pupils:
     “McKinley should have been shot. He brought about the Filipino war for personal aggrandizement and for the benefit of syndicates and trusts, and could not expect anything else. I am not surprised at the news. I am a Republican, but that is my opinion.”
     When the children went home they told their parents, and the citizens went in a body to the trustees and demanded his removal.
