THE PirTSBTTHG DISPATCH, TUESDAY, ' PEBBUAET 12, 1889.
THE SCHOOL HOKROE.
Chief Clerk Pomeroy Says the McAl
isterville Children Are
WELL FED, CLOTHED AND HOUSED.
He Denies That Snperintendent
GENERAL TTAGXEK'S EEPOET TO BEAYEK
A MoTcment to tednct the Eipensts of the Orphans
The other side of the story of the McAlis
terville school horror is told in this morn
ing's DisrATCH. The children are said to
be well fed and kindly treated, and their
mental troubles are alleged to be merely
sympathetic and the result of mimicry. At
the same time there is a moTement on foot
to separate the schools from the Department
of Public Instruction, which is expected to
result in a large sarins in salaries.
tFROM A 6TJLFF COBBESFONDKfT.3
Hahrisbukg, February 1L Chief Clerk
Pomeroy, of the Department of Soldiers
Orphans' Schools, has been to McAlister
ville, viewed the situation, and reports that
with the exception of three children, the
school at that place was all right when he
left last evening. On his way from McAl
isterville he met Inspector Greer on the
way to the school to investicate the reports
that have been published in the newspapers,
and the latter will make a formal report to
the department concerning the matter. Chief
Clerk Pomeroy reports the children well
clad and well fed, and qnotes from the
.printed report of Dr. Banks and private
conversations with him in support of this
statement, and the statement that the build
ings and quarters occupied by the children
tare in excellent sanitary condition.
The peculiar derangement originated with
a weak-minded boy and a mimic. From
these it spread.
UO GIRLS ATTACKED.
"One peculiarity ot the matter," said Mr.
Pomeroy, "is the fact that not a girl has
been affected. The studies of the school
have been relaxed and when I left it was
expected the three cases remaining would
soon be well. One of the three was in bed,
but it would not be strange if his case were
the most difficult to deal with, as his par
ents are insane. I asked Dr. Banks would
it be advisable to furlough those who were
ill for the purpose of removing them from
th those likely to be sympatheti
cally affected. 'If you do that, replied the
doctor, 'you are likely to leave an oppor
tunity of fnrloughing the majority of the
children within 24 hours.' "
"Have vou seen General "Wagner's state
"I have. He alleges that Snperintendent
(Higbee suppressed his last report. The last
report he made to us was published in our
department report for 188G. He made a
subsequent report to Governor Beaver,
dated from Philadelphia, April 28, 1887.
His report should have been made to the
Snperintendent of Soldiers Orphans'
Schools, but he not only entirely ignored
the department in so doing, but specifically
did so in the opening paragraph of his re
port. We received a copy of that report,
but as it was not made to the Department
'Superintendent, we did not publish it.
AS Cf FOBMAL BErOET.
The matter is simply this: General Wag
ner reported to the Governor, and reports
to the Governor are not the property of our
department Hence, the department did
not incorporate it with the annual report.
This is the extent of the suppression. We
received a copy ot General Wagner's re
port to the Governor, and it is on file in the
'department. Here is the opening paragraph
f it, to which'I have referred:
To His Excellency, General James A. Beaver,
i Having been appointed Inspector and Ex
aminer ot Soldiers Orphans Schools bj your
prececessor, wuicn appointment was confirmed
by you on February 1J, 1SST. and beinc com
pelled to resign because of my appointment as
Director of the Department of Public Works
of this city, I beg to present this, my final,
report to the authority under which I hold my
"In view of this," said Mr. Pomeroy,
"the department could hardly be expected
to treat General Wagner's report as its
official property, and as for suppressing it,
it was not Superintendent Higbee's to either
suppress or publish."
KEFiECTCfG OU HIGBEE.
The report in question makes severe re
flections on Superintendent Higbee, calling
him physically incapable of performipg the
duties of his office, and plainly intimating
that there might be other reasons for the
management not coming up to the expecta
tions of General Wagner. The General
also complains to the Governor of the
pigeon-holing in the department of rules
and regulations for the government of the
schools. This, it may be remembered, was
the subject ol a pointed correspondence be
tween Mr. Wagner and Superintendent
Higbee, in which the latter told the former
ifhe meant that rules and regulations had
been pigeon-holed in his department he
told a deliberate falsehood. General Wag
ner, in reply, called Superintendent Higbee
a physical and mental dyspeptic, and in
timated that he was also a blackguard and
a bully. These polite reflections on Super
intendent Higbee at a time wlien his son
was lying at the point of death terminated
The facts concerning that matter," said
Chief Clerk Pomeroy, "are that the rules
which we had drawn up for the government
of the schools were sent to General Wagner
for his approval or condemnation. When
he returned them with recommendations
we Bent them to the Governor, who has
them yet We drew up rules of our own
later, which we consider very satisfactory."
AN ECONOMICAL SUGGESTION.
Further questions addressed to Mr. Pom
eroy developed the following interesting
facts concerning the legislation for Soldiers
Orphans' Schools now before the Legisla
ture: The proposition to separate the Sol
diers Orphans Schools from the Depart
ment of Public Instruction comes from
Superintendent Higbee himself. It will
decrease his salary, it is true, but he does
not take that into consideration. He says
the schools need a separate superintendent
daring their closing year more than at anv
other time, as there is more danger
that they will then be neglected. About
the time of the inspection of the soldiers
orphans' schools Superintendent Higbee is
employed with the normal schools, and
must neglect one or the other. His plan is
to abolish the offices of the inspectors in'
separating the department from the Educa
tion Department, and to have the work of
inspection done by his inspector and. chief
clerk. Dr. Higbee and Inspector Greer
conferred with the Governor on this point
and the latter was so favorably impressed
that in his annual message he suggested the
separation of the departments. The bill
introduced by Senator McCreary to this
end, according to figures furnished by Mr.
Pomeroy, reduces the expenses of the
soldiers orphans' branch.
THE J3ALABT LIST.
The expenses at present are as follows:
Salary of Superintendent, in addition to his
salary as Superintendent of Public In
struction, $1,250; male inspector, 81,800; fe
male inspector, $1,200; chief clerk, f 1,800;
additional clerk, $1,400; traveling expenses,
$1,300; total, $8,750. The expenses pro
vided forby the new bill are: Superintend
ent, 53,000; chief clerk, 81,600; additional
clerk, $1,400; traveling expenses, $1,500;
total, $T,700. The saving thus shown is
S1.050 per annum. It may be remarked
here that Inspector Wagner in his last re
jxirt recommended the separation of the
soldiers orphans' schools irom the Depart
ment of Education, and suggested that the
superintendent's salarv be fixed at $2,000.
"I do not know,"said Mr. Pomeroy, "who
the new superintendent will be if the bill
passes, but if 1 am to remain in the depart
ment I hope it will be the present male in
spector, ex-Senator Greer, who is one of the
most careful and conscientious men I ever
met There have been no admissions to the
schools since 1887, and none are contem
plated now, but it is proposed to continue
fdn cntmnlt .,;! MS for the reason already
stated in your paper justice to the young
cniiaren wno are now aiu u. Uic u.
This has the indorsement of the Governor
and the Grand Army committee. As to the
children at McAlistervillc, I iound them a
rosy-cheeked lot of youngsters, but as to the
general details of the institution I refer you
to the formal report, which will be made by
Inspector Greer." SlMrsON.
