of Judge Craves to Pass
Upon . Motion.
HOLDS MRS. f.VKINNEY'S FATE
Arguments in Favor of New Trial
Heard Upon Return of Verdict of
the Jury Weeks Ago.
The town of Aledo has again awaken
ed and is now waiting anxiously for
ihe decision of Judge Graves on the
motion of the defendant for a new trial
n the case of the people vs. Mrs. Arch
ibald McKinney, charged with cruelty
to Stella Grady. This decision will be
given in the Mercer county circuit
Did Mot Fix Penalty.
The motion was made immediately
upon the conclusion of the trial, which
resulted in a verdict finding the de
fendant guilty as charged in the in
dictment. The arguments were heard
at once, but as the judge desired more
time to consider the questions at issue
and had to hold court in Henry county
the next week, Friday was set as the
day for his return to Aledo to announce
his decision. The principal basis for
a new trial was in "the fact that the
jury failed to fix the penalty.

Reports of Attendance Show In
creases Over Last Year
in West End.
NEED OF NEW BUILDING
Board May Consider Increase in Grant
District Book Rentals Total
$441.79, and Tuition $446.50.
Reports made at the regular meet
ing of the board of education last even
ing show that the attendauce in the
city schools, particularly those in the
western part of the city, is greatly in
creased over that of last year, and ad
ditional accommodations are necessary.
Supt. H. B. Hayden reported that, on
account of the increased attendance, it
had been found necessary to open an
additional room at the Irving school,
nine rooms new being maintained
there. The new class is in charge ot
a substitute teacher. The four schools
in the western part, the Hawthorne,
Grant, Washington, and Irving, are all
crowded by the increased attendance.
At the Hawthorne school, where 15
rooms are maintained, the attendance
is G17, compared with 5C9 pupils and
14 rooms last year. At the Washington
building the attendance o? 152 practi
cally reaches the capacity of the four
rooms. The attendance last ye-ar was
15J. At the Irving school, where an
additional room has just been opened,
the attendance is ,182, compared with
'5(11 lase year. At the Grant school the
attendance has increased from 145 last
year to 152 now reported.
Sfrd of Xfir HiiilalioKM.
The conditions are such that in the
near future it will be necessary for
the board of education to consider the
erection of a larger school building in
the Grant school district. The fom
room frame structure which at present
accommodates this district is rapid!
becoming inadequate to meet the re
quirements. The district is being built
up rapidly, with a resulting increase in
'he attendance at the Grant school.
This is the only frame public school
building in the city.
The committee on teachers last
evening reported that the increase in
the attendance at the high school,
where the enrollment is 5f"0, had made
it necessary to secure an additional
tcr.cher, and that Miss Ada M. Hoebeke
had been placed in charge of the clas
oos in history and English. The board
ratified the appointment of Miss Hoe
beke, iixing her salary at $C( a month.
To provide for the additional classes,
the northwest basement room, which
heretofore has been occupied by the
Mansill collection, has been equipped
ts a class room. The resignation of
Noah Knapp, who has taken a jNsition
at the township high school at Oak
Park, was accepted, and Victor C. Hall
elected to succeed him as instructor
of physics and mathematics at a salary
of $S0 a month.
The Mansill collection at tho high
school has been removed, and now
occupies a large class room on the
first floor, opiosite the office and board
of education room. It. is to be installed
there permanently, as the school mu
seum. ItrrHplM I'rnm ItcntnlM.
The semi-annual report of Principal
If. E. Brown, of the high school, on
the rental and sale of books, showed
an income of $411.79, and the sale of
'umber to students in the manual traili
ng department to amount to $51. GS.
Checks for these amounts were turned
over to the board. The report of tui
tion of non-resident pupils attending
the high school showed a total of
$416.50, collected during the first sem
ester, and this amount was turned over
to the board. An allowance of $12 was
made to purchase additional apparatus
for the physical laboratory of the high

The board granted C. W. Gilson, di
rector of manual training, a leave of
absence of 2 days, to visit the Bradley
Polytechnic institute at Peoria Thurs
day, and to attend a convention of
manual training teachers at the Illinois
university Friday. Miss Dean, in
charge of the industrial work and sew
ing classes, was allowed a similar
leave, to visit the St. Louis schools
Thursday and Friday and inspect the
work in these lines and in drawing.
The committee on janitors reported
Mie resignation of D. W. Stephenson at
the Irving school, and the appointment
f E. C. Richards to fill the vacancy.
