Chaibmax Dick has already saved
Ohio's Democrats the trouble of
holding a convention to select a nom
nee for governor. The fault with
Dick's prediction is that it presumes
the Democratic party to be organ
ized upon the same strictly cash basis
as Sir. Hanna's.
Wnt:s Col. Dick discusses the
"throw down" of Senator J. Park
Alexander he also finds it conven
ient to use two sets of opinions. The
Democbat violates no confidence
when it says that Col. Dick's private
opinion of the Third ward statesmen
seems to be no better than thelatter's
private opinion of Col. Dick.
Mayor Jones of Toledo has Anally
got down to a specific declaration
that he will not be a candidate for
governor unless the Democratic con
vention nominates an untrustworthy
man with a barrel and goes back on
the people in its pledges of legisla
tion. If this is the only conditional
bill of exceptions Mayor Jones has
to file against the Democratic party

THE SCHOOL INVESTIGATION.
The committee appointed to in
quire into the management of the
Akron public schools made a.uuanb
inoiis report to the Hoard of Educa
tion last night.
Excepting some minor criticisms,
the report is a complete vindication
of Prof. Thomas' supervision of the
schools for the last two years. The
committee deplores what it concludes
to be the fact that the Superintend
ent has been unfairly criticised by
"well-meaning citizens and the
press," and adds: ""Without an
honest and united support of all good
citizens, the superintendent's useful
ness will be permanently impaired
and his efficiency permanently af
fected in this city, and this, for the
most part, from causes not his own;
hence we do not. recommend any
present action upon the matter of
The report has been referred to the
Board as a committee of the whole
and will be considered at a special
meeting to be held soon at the call of
the president. There seems to be a
general disposition on the part of the
members of the Board to suspend
discussion of the report until the
special meeting called for its consid
eration. The committee has taken
ample time to complete its labors
and the people doubtless give it
credit for acting, as it has professed,
in the best interests of the schools.

BISHOP NEWMAN IS DEAD.
Eminent Methodist Churchman Expired
at Saratojra Funeral Sen Ires
Saratoga, July C Bishop John P.
Newman of the Methodist Episcopal
church is dead.
Bishop Newman had been in failing
health for about a year past, but it was
only a week ago that his condition
really alarmed his friends. Since July
8 ho had been sinking rapidly. The im
mediate cause of the death of Bishop
Newman was puenmonia and myelitis.
The bishop became conscious shortly
before his death aud recosmized his
wife. Mrs. U. S. Grant, Mrs. P. D.
Grant and others arrived at tho segno a
moment or so later. Mrs. Newman is
almost crushed by her bereavement.
Inasmuch as she is in coniparatively
feeblo health it is feared that she will
not long survive her husband.
Telegrams and cablegrams were being
received from all quarters expressing
sympathy. A dispatch from Bishop
Randolph Poster, at Roxbnry, Mass.,
announced that ho woidd reach Sara
toga today aud complete arrangements
for the funeral. It will take place at
the First Methodist Episcopal church
this city, Saturday afternoon. Besides
immediate relatives of the Newman
family, Mrs. U. S. Grant, Mrs. P. D.

treatment of certain 'teachers has not
been as kind and considerate as it
should have been, and we And that a
feeling of unrest and dissatisfaction
has pervaded the entire building,
which cannot result otherwise than
in injury lo the school system in the
Fourth. The atfairs of the High
school have been in a critical condi
tion, and such that tiie Board should
give the school their careful and con
siderate attention, to the end that
the work therein may be brought up
to the proper standard aud all inter
"Wo find the teachers have been
lined up against one another in such
a way that there has been constant
friction between what is known as
the new and the old teachers, to such
an extent that there has been a di
rect interference with the work of
the school. We find there has been
a constant warfare both in and out of
the sch'ool, between these two fac
tions, and the teachers to be em
ployed there next year must be made
to understand that they must sink
any fractional differences that may
exist, cease carrying tales and settle
down to earnest co-operation and the
teaching of school for which they
are employed. If such a spirit can
not otherwise be effected, it will ne
cessitate a complete and radical
change in the teaching force, in or
der to bring about a proper harmony
essential to the highest and best in
terests of the pupils and the school.
Fifth. We are also of the opinion
that the course of study in the High
school has not been as carefully fol
lowed as it should have been. And
while we recognize the unsettled
condition of the school two years ago
and the necessity for new courses of
study and the necessary labor and
trials which were needed to show
what was best and proper, yet a con
tinual changing cannot but be detri
mental and disturbing to both teach
ers and pupils. It would seem that
the committee on course of study
should give this question its earnest
aid careful consideration, to the end
that a more simple and stable course
of study should be introduced.
We. feel that it is the desire of the
citizens that our High school train
ing be carried on so as to more
throroughly and completely embrace
the fundamental branches, to the
end that a pupil going through the
High school may be qualified for the
duties of life rather than making his
course preparatory to a college edu
cation. Sixth. We also reconiuieud that
the course of study as prescribed by
the Board for the grade schools,
should be more closely followed, to
the end that scholars passing from
such schools to the High school, may
enter the same more nearly upon the
Seventh. We find that there has
not been a sufficient nor a frequent
enough visitation of our schools by
our superintendent; which, no doubt,
has given rise to a feeling that injus
tice has been done some of the
teachers dropped from their posi
tions, who felt that as clear and full
an idea of their abilities and methods
of managing their respective schools
was"notknown to the superintendent.
We realize that the past two years
have been full of perplexing prob
lems, and that many details have
been thrownjupou oursuperintendent
which has made it impossible for
him to devote as much time as he
should, or probably would have
liked, to the visitation of the differ
ent ward schools and to a proper ac
quaintance of their methods and the
work that was being accomplished.
We would suggest that a rule be
made to the effect that the superin
tendent's office hours should be dur
ing the afternoon and that his entire
mornings should be left free for a
personal supervision and visitation
of the different schools and tho work
being performed in them.
Eighth. It has also transpired that
there has not been as much criticism
as there should have been of differ
ent teachers' work, which lias al
lowed the teachers to continue
through the year with a feeling that
they were doing good work and all
that was reqnired of them, so that at
the end of the year, if they were not
re-engaged, the dropping of them
from the roll has come in the nature
of a very painful surprise, which
could have been avoided had a free
and full criticism of their work been
offered them during tin: year.
It is due to any employe that he
should know wherein he is deficient
or wherein he is not carrying on his
work in harmony witli the system
and lo the satisfaction of his super
visors. In several instances the superin-

tendent and school principals have
neglected to make proper suggestions
and criticisms of the individual
teacher's work at the proper time,
but have reserved such criticism to
the end of the school year.
Ninth. We also believe that there
has been entirely too much inter
ference on the part of the public in
the matter of the employment of
Our Board is elected to look after
all' matters of this kind and is in full
possession of all facts touching the
abilities of applicants or those
employed in the schools, and to the
Board should be left the final dis
position of all such cases.
While recognizing the right of the
public to be interested in our schools,
yet we are pursuaded that often
personal interests are carried to such
an extentas to hamper aud hinder
both the committee and others in
charge'of this particular work.
Tenth. We feel that discretion and
prudence has not always been ex
ercised by members of the Board
and Superintendent, in negotiating
with applications for the position of
teacher, which has resulted in dis
appointment, dissatisfaction and
trouble in many cases brought to
Eleventh. In our judgment there
has not been the proper guarding of
matters talked over' in teachers'
committee meetings, touching the
character and ability of our teachers,
which has tended to misunderstand
ings, hard-feelings and lias hampered
the peaceful, solution of the very
difficult problem of making up our
roll of teachers.
Committee meetings should be a
place where confidential opinions
could be exchanged without the
apprehension that anything but the
general results and determinations
will be spread before the Board or
Twelfth. We also find that there
is an opinion quite current in this
city to the effect that the Superinten
dent and the Board of Education
have discriminated against teachers
and applicants for the position of
teacher, who reside or were educated
in the city of Akron; and have
favored those applicants and teachers
who reside without said city, and
have been educated in the Normal
schools of other states; but we
believe that there is no sub
stantial ground for such opinion or
cause for such complaint; and we
find that whatever circumstances
might look towards a just cause for
grievance in that respect are the re
sult of an honest and conscientious
effort on the part of the Board to lift
up the schools of this city and place
them on a higher plane, and to that
end the employment of a limited
number of teachers with different
methods of instruction, from differ
ent places of education, has been
deemed advisable; and such desire
of the Hoard and the need in such
behalf was communicated by it to the
superintendent at the commence
ment of his employment in this city
in the year 1S97.
Thirteenth. We feel that the mat
ter of salaries should be so arranged
that all teachers employed In the
same grade or doing tho same
amount and kind of work should re
ceive like pay, modified by experi
ence in our own schools and else

yet it is so fraught with difficulties
and leads to so much jealousy and
hard feeling, that it is hardly a safe
basis on which to rest this question.
We suggest that the Committee on
Teachers and Salariesmake recommen
dations to the Board, so amending
our rules, that the matter of salaries
shall be placed on a more definite
and fixed basis.
Fourteenth. We believe that con
fusion and trouble have often arisen
from the failure on the part of our
committees to follow the rules pre
scribed by the Board, and we there
fore suggest that such rules be more
closely followed hereafter.
Fifteenth. We find that members
of the Board of Education have re
quested and received gratuitously
from dealers in text books, books of
considerable value, the same not be
ing regular text books used in the
schools. This is a dangerous and im
proper practice, and we therefore
recommend that such gratuities on
the part of any member of the Board
or employe of the schools, should
cease, to the end that they may be
entirely free in the discharge of
their duties, to the best interests
ind the economical running of our
Sixteenth. If we understand aright
the policy of the Board when the
change was made in the management
of our schools two years ago, it was
to put our schools on the highest pos
sible plane of efficiency, and to that
end, the best talent obtainable was
to be secured and a thorough rear
rangement was to be made of our
schools; and from the statements of
the principals, supervisors and many
others who came before us and who
are in close touch with our schools, it
Is our judgment that on the whole,
they are in a healthy aud nourishing
condition, and that much progress
has been made in the right direction.
But a still further work must be
done which can only bo accomplished
by the full and hearty co-operation
of the entire Board, and the citizens
of our city in the burying of all per
sonal feelings and grievances and re
membering that the schools are not
conducted in the interests of auy.one
in particular, nor even for the teach
ers, but rather for our ten thousand
boys and girls whose interests we are
striving to upbuild and advance.
Seventeeth. There should be a
careful redisricting of the city so
jthat pupils should attend the school
lying nearest to their homes and most
conveniently reached by them.
We find that at the present time
there has been no general rule as to
districts", and a careful arrangement
along this line will bo helpful to the
management of the schools and
would save, wo feel,- much trouble
aud dissatisfaction among both
teachers and. parents.
Eighteenth. We find that in the
case of Miss Anna Thomas, the atti
tude of the superintendent and prin
cipal of the High sphool has not been
warranted by a just regard for her
feelings and a proper consideration
of the condition and circumstances
surrounding the case. ,
Niuteenth. In justice to all parties
concerned, it is but fair that the com
mittee make the following state
ment: Soon after Mr. Thomas was elect
ed superintendent of our schools,
more than two years ago, and the
new Board organized, Mr. Thomas
was invited -to attend a meeting of
the teacher's committee. Mr. Bryan,
the President of the Board, was also
presnt. At that meeting general
plans for the coining year were
talked over. Mr. Thomas said ho
could not make any recommendation
of teachers in the employment of
the Board at that time, as he was not
acquainted with their work, but he
would recommend the new teachers
to be employed; so that the recom
mendation of old teachers fell largely
upon the teachers' committee. Sup
erintendent Fraunfelter being in
poor health asked to bo excused
from this work.
The committee feeling the great
responsibility resting upon them
moved very carefully in this matter,
and after repeated consultation with
Superintendent Fraunfelter and the
principals of the various schools, it
was found advisable not lo recom
mend some seven or eight teachers.
At a meeting of the teachers' com
mittee, at which Mr. Thomas and
Mr. Bryan were present, it was de
cided best to notify these teachers at
an early date that their election for
another year was uncertain. To re
lieve tho committee, and upon the
suggest ioirof Mr. Bryan, Mr. Thomas
offered to have his dork send out
these letters from his office in War
ren, which was done, but it has
proved most unfortunate. One of
these letters was publ ished in one of
pur daily, papers and freely com
mented upon, and through this
paper, the whole city was notified
that Mr. Thomas was turning down
teachers, about whose ability ho
knew nothing, so that for five or six
months before Mr. 'Thomas came to
Akron, he was criticised and con
demned for doing what he really
had nothing to do with, and he is
still suffering from this unjust
Mr. Thomas was given to under
stand by the Board, before he came to
Akron, that many changes would be
necessary to bring tho schools
up to the desired condition. Some of
these changes have since been made,
while others have not, because the
Superintendent could not have the
support of tho Board, which lias un
dergone, two or three changes since
this work began.

of our schools, that our Superintend
ent has not dealt fairly and justly
with certain citizens, teachers, and
applicants for the position of teacher,
aud as a result, a want of confidence
in his integrity, and a sentiment im
pugning his good faith, prevails.
We find, however, that in practi
cally all of the instances brought to
ourattcntion,which yirima facie might
appear to lend color to the conditions
above mentioned, a full investigation
of the facts and surrounding circum
stances, convinces us that such feeling
and sentiment is unwarranted and
rests upon no substantial foundation;
but that such condition has resulted
largely if not entirely, from tho fol
lowing causes, to-wit:
First. An imprudent habit of com
municativeness on the part of the
Superintendent in matters in whole
or in part without his jurisdiction,
when silence or plain, brief or decis
ive expression would have been
Second. A mistaken conclusion
drawn by the applicant, from state
ments made by the Superintendent
aud members of the Board, together
with a feeling on the part of many
teachers and their friends that the
position of teacher is one of life
Third. Injudicious, illtempered,
and illadvised comment upon, and
interference with, the duties and pre
rogatives of the Board of Education,
its teachers and employes, on the
part of the public press and many
well-meaning citizens, without tak
ing pains to ascertain the facts and
circumstances bearing upon the cases
in question.and then building thereon
a sound and dispassionate judgment,
thus in effect assuming a position of
hostility and unfairness, instead of
manifesting a proper spirit of friend
liness, towards the schools and
In view of the premises, your com
mittee, having an eye singly to the
welfare and education of the youth
of this city, and the continued main
tenance of the high standing of our
schools, do believe and find that
without an honest aud united sup
port of all-good citizens, the superin
tendent's usefulness will be mater
ially impaired and his efficiency
permanently affected, in this city,
and this, for the most part, from
causes not his own; hence we do not
recommend any present action upon
the matter of superintendent.
