PLEA FOR CHILDREN
Residents of Bfuff Want
creased School Accom
ASK CHANGES AT HORACE MAHU
Teachers to Go in Body to Northern
Illinois Convention at
; The board of education last even
ing was waited upon by a committee
of 15 members of the Muff Improve'
ment association that was appointed
to ask certain changes at the Horace
Mann school. There are two vacan1
rooms in the building and the claim
was made in the petition presented
that they should be opened to re
lieve the crowded condition in the
first grade room and to give an eightii
for the advanced pupils of the :dit
trict who, under present arrange
ments. are sent down to the Lincoln
and Longfellow buildings. .
Nearly all the members of the com
njittee had something to say in sup
port of the contention of the people
of the bluff district, all of them hav
ing children in school. It was claim
ed that there are 54 pupils in the first
grade room and that there are ZZ
pupils from the district about the
Horace Mann school who are attend
ing the schools down town. They es
pecially' insisted -npon the establish
ing of an eighth grade in one of tlje
How Conditions Are S(et.
Supt. H. D. llayden submitted a re
port on the conditions as he and the
teachers are meeting them, pointing
out that the number of teachers has
been increased from two to six in th.
past two years and stating that he
had intended "to recommend the es
tablishing of an eighth grade in the
lorace Mann school at the beginning
f another school vear. Messrs.
Denkmann and Mclntyre, of the
teachers committee, 1 old of their in
vestigation of conditions in the school
it the present time and assured the
committee that the matter would be
more fully looked into and the best
done for the pupils of the bluff dis
trict that is possible under the cir
cumstances. The board then took the
matter under advisement and today
arrangements were made for a more
full investigation of the conditions
with a view of providing a remedy.

school, submitted a plan for the es

school building. Tte Btated that the
idea is to make the evening instruc'
tion free to those young people who
wish to avail themselves of It, and to
this end a number of the teachers fr
the high and grammar schools have
signified a willingness to undertake
the work of instruction voluntarily.
Sessions can be held two or three ev
enings a week and all the common
and Home of the high school branch
es taught. The board did not tnk
action in the matter leyond express
ing favor with the idea and giving
Mr. Darby authority to proceed with
the project and report further.
The Kockford Meeting;.
Supt. llayden reported in regard ti
the arrangements for the Kockford
meetinsr of the Northern Illinois
Teachers association Thursday, Fri
day and Saturday of next week and
asked that he be given authority to
close the schools the latter part of
the week so far as necessary to per
mit those teachers who wish to at-
tend. Out of a total of 83 teachers 71
have already expressed a desire to go.
The fact that Supt. llayden, as chair
man of the executive committee
Ioard, has much to do with nrrnng
ing the program and that a number
of Hock Island teachers will take
part in the discussions, lends partic
ular interest to the meeting for the
teachers if. this. city. "Ethics and
School" is the general topic and un
der it all the relations in the school
will be discussed, including that be
tween the teacher and pupil, the
teacher and the home, and the mu
tual rights and duties existing be
tween the teachers, -pupils and par
ents. Those from this city who are
on the program are Principal Darby
and Miss Clara Woltman'n. Miss Eliz
abeth Egan is chairman of the pri
mary section. The board granted
Supt. llayden the desired authority.
. Other Matters
The Rock Island Choral union ask
ed permission to use the assembly
room for the meetings for rehearsals,
promising to meet all expenses con
nected with the opening of the build
ing evenings. The matter was refer
red to Messrs. Denkmann and Mcln
tyre with power to act.
Miss Grace Noftsker was appointed
as substitute teacher. During th?
term she has been engaged in fourth
and fifth grade work at the Irving
school. The salary of Michael Colli
gnu. janitor at the high school, was
fixed at $135 a month, out of which
sum all extra help must be paid.
Various matters connected with
the completing of the new high
school and the grnding of th -grounds
were .disposed of and the
question of a formal opening was dis
cussed. The sentiment was general
in favor of having a public openin;
of the building as soon as the cabinet

COAL FIELDS BOUGHT

nect Up the Prop
erty. The management of the Milwaukee
& St. 'Paul railroad has just complet
ed the purchase of 25.000 acres of rich
coal lands in Illinois at an expense of
nearly $2,O0O.O00, and is still holding
options on several thousand acres
The purpose of the management is
to provide the St. Paul system with
fuel for all time to come, and it is
Stated that there is no present pur
pose of engaging in the coal business,
despite the magnitude of the com
pany's purchases. The coal land.-,
which have been acquired cpiielly dur
ing the last year are located in Put
nam, LaSalle, Hureau and Hennepin
counties, west and southwest of La
Salle. They are in what is known as
the LnSalle coal district, which con
tains the finest grade of Illinois coal
Negotiations for the property were
carried on for the St. Paul company
by Hanker Hopkins, of Hureau, and
his operations were so successful that
no inkling was obtained by interested
parties regarding the magnitude of
the deals nor the identity of the pur
chaser. In many instances the St.
Paul company has purchased the land
outright, while in others it has pur
chased the mining rights, and it is
understood that within one year the
company will be mining every ton of
coal used on the entire system.
Is St. Paul Concern.
In this connection it is learned that
the itochelle & Southern road, which
was incorporated last week at
Springfield with a capital stock of
$100,000, is a St. Paul concern, organ
ized with a view to connecting the
lines of the St. Paul with the new
coal land purchase. The construc
tion of this road wdl be begun next
spring, and will be completed as ex
peditiously as possible. The road
will extend from a connection with
the St. Paul at Davis Junction in Ogle
county to McNabb, which is 03 mile
