The Rock Island High School Class
liaot Kvenlaas'a Exercinea at Harper'
Theatre Oration and Eamaya ln
atmrtive Addrefti by Principal Ray,
f Hyde Park.
Harper's theatre has not before con
tained a larger.more appreciative or more
pleasantly entertained audience than that
which was present last evening on the occa
sion of the annual commencementexercls
es of the Hick. Island high school. It was
the graduation of the class of '89, and
not only was the large attendance, but
the grettt number of floral testimoni
als an evidence of the deep in
terest felt in the graduates. Such
a wealth of nature's fairest and
choicest treasures is seldom seen. The
bulk of the circle, where the graduates
were seated, was a bank of flowers, while
above, hunsr in white letters, the class
motto, "I can. I ought, I will."
As the curtain rose, it revealed seated
upon the stage the class of '9, President
Reimers and Directors Thomas, Barth
and Knowlton. of the board of education,
Supt. Kemble, Rev. O. W. Gue, Rev.
Father Thomas Mackin and Principal W.
H. Ray, of the Hyde Park high school.
At the side were Principal W. II. Hatch
and Miss Briggs, Mrs. Nessenson and
Mrs. Eastman, of the high school corps.
opened promptly with an overture "The
Tar's Farewell" by Woodyatt's orchestra,
of Moline; then the High school chorus
under the direction of Prof. Housel, sang
"Spring's Bright Glances. " The invo
cation by Rev. G. W. Gue followed, and
after it two numbers by the chorus,
"Coming of Spring" and "Our Hearts

strong oration on "The Public Schools,"

"What shall we read?" was the sub
ject of a very thoughtful and carefully
prepared essay by Miss Jennie Dirk man
a review of the various classes of lit
erature, those works that are best calcu
lated to inspire the mind, and that trashy
cheap novel stuff that is degrading and
demoralizing in its effort. She suggested
the reading of books of good influence,
and the names of authors who would
have a good effect on the reader.
The orchestra played as an overture.
"Bohemian Girl," when Miss Grace M
Sturgeon read a highly creditable essay
on "Our Presidential Campaigns," a pro
duction which proved, however, more of
the nature of a general criticism of meth
ods and practices of American politics.
The young lady dwelt at length in well
chosen language upon the character of
presidential campaigns, the influence and
interest attending the same and the patri
otic aspirations, personal and political
feelings that enter into the shaping of
the party policy and platform and the
selection of candidates. Slio also spoke
of the numerous factions that contribute
to the formation and success of party
Miss Charlotte F. Kcnworthy read an
essay with the title of "A Question of
the Day," a paper devoted to the subject
of woman's work, her advancement and
her position in the world and in society
Woman, in the mind of the essayist, was
what she made herself. She should edu
cate and equip herself for the struggle of
life. The reason of the poor compensa'
tion in the world for woman's work, was
the fact of lack of preparation and con
centration of labor on her part; an
unwisely spent girlhood and a lack of
pride in the work. There was too much
waiting for a choice for life than in
preparing to meet the obstacles
of life. It would be better, too, in
stead of crying for the ballot box
for woman to devote herself to the edu
cation and salvation of those of her sex
who need such attention.
Under circumstances such as that
of last evening where all did so
creditably, it would be invidious to
discriminate as to the merits of
any essayist or essay, but the production
of this young lady, savored so little of
the "sweet girl graduate," and was so
out of the ordinary run of commence
ment papers, that to reserve spe
cial mention or to hesitate ta say
that she carried off the honors of the
evening would be equally unjust. Not
only was there so much common sense and
natural ability reflected as to composi
tion and preparation, but the enunciation
and delivery were so clear and pleasant
as to give promise of her own attain
ment, if she continues, of the high plane

The orchestra rendered "The Silver
Bell," after which President Reimers
PRINCIPAL W. n. KAY,
of the Hyde Park high school, who de
livered one of the most instructive, forci
ble, logical and cultured addresses that
has been heard in this city. In com
mencing, Mr. Ray expressed his acquain
tance with many of the people of Rock
Island; it had been his good fortune to
spend some time here while engaged in
institute work on one or two occasions;
this, together with the fact of his long
existing personal relations with Principal
Hatch made him especially glad to be
present on this occasion. He spoke of
the importance of, the graduation of a
high school; it is a goal to which, the
class has been looking for four years of
study and an end to which friends have
been looking with great interest. It is
therefore an event of great importance to
the community. There were three ques
tions which the speaker desired to briefly
present: What is the high school? What
is the high school doing for you? What
are you doing for the high school?
The high school is the agent of the
state to develop citizens; its purpose is
the development of civil life; to perfect
manhood and womanhood and give ns the
ideal life. It teaches honor; it teaches
obedience, and through this higher law
of unselfish consideration not only is
obedience taught to the state and the
law, but regard for the rights and feel
ings of others, and truth, gentleness and
sincerity are daily wrought out.
The high school is importing a knowl
edge of history that we may know our
country's principles and government and
such a knowledge of other nations as
will lead to universal citizenship. It
teaches literature, which stands all in
good stead. 'It teaches science which
means accuracy and gives you the skilled
hand, the sharp ear, the quick eye. What
can be more accurate than the teaching
in the Rock Island high school,of which
you are justly proud? It stands as a
centre of culture, reaching down through
the teachers of the other'grades, who are
largely its graduates, to the nurseries;
and reaching up but who may measure
the height? Intellect has and shall rule
the world, and shall not our high school
look up to the best training of the mind?
The advantages of education are not only
shown in such men as Longfellow, Low
ell, Newman and Gladstone, but in such
men in the commercial world as Adams
and Depew. It is clearly demonstrated
that the commercial spirit of the age
does not underrate education by the
munificent donations to educational en.
terprises, while the endurance of educa
tion is shown in Plato and Demosthenes.
The high school is the foundation of all
If the High school is doing this work
for you, you are in its debt, and it should
have your sympathy and cooperation
day by day. It is the hope and life of
the country, the centre of culture and
Addressing the graduates, Mr. Ray
admonished them that their education
had just fairl begnn. The best man or
woman is the self educated. It is the
men of purpose who tucceed. In the
higher branches of learning or usefulness
in the world, there should be from this
on a definite purpose to do and to be
something. Have a purpose, let it be
what it may and let it be to do good to
yourselves and others in some
way. Take some particular line of
work and follow it day by day, no matter
how humble it maybe. Push toward the
sun of light and your work shall be trans
formed into an undertaking befitting
your highest endeavor and aim.
then presented the diplomas to the grad
uates in the following language:
Young Ladies and Gentlemen:
In behalf of the board of education I
am about to present to you your diplomas
of graduation from the Rock Island high
school, and assure you that to me it is a
pleasant task. In behalf of the public.
whom we represent, I congratulate you
and your teachers on work well done.
Most of you entered the public schools
of this city in childhood, and many of
you have been through every grade, from
the lowest to the highest, and I am glad
to say ror the board or education you
have done your duty faithfully and well,
and will pass from under their control.
and from the rooms of the public schools,
a credit alike to them and Yourselves.
This day should mark a period in your
lives never to be forgotten, and from
your cbildnood until now, so far as per
tains to your-ducation, you have been
the wards of the public, and we and
your teachers, have beenvour guardians.
For your education taxes have been freely
levieu auu cneenuny paid by a generous
public; public schools have been built,care
ful and competent teachers have been nro-
vided.and within our knowledge there has
been nothing left undone that could be
done to provide you with the facilities
and means of acquiring a liberal educa
tion. . But today our guardianship over
you ends and we part. You are about to
enter upon a future, that must in the
very nature of things, be largely dictated
and controlled by yourselves.
But wherever you may go, and what
ever you may do, you will find that the
lessons you have learned in the Rock
Island public schools, the discipline ac
quired, and the principles taught, if you
are true to them and yourselves, will
erow with your growth and strengthen
with your strength. It is not my pur
pose to give you much advice for your
future guidance, but in parting, there is
one thing I would urge upon you, and
mat is, cnensn with an abiding effection
the public schools that have done so
much for you.
Be therefore, on all occasions their
honest friends. Remember that public
schools are the life of our country, that
they were not established for a favored
few, hut that the children of the nation
regardless of color or nationality, may
become intelligent, earnest and patriotic
citizens for the protection and preserva
tion of our republic.
" Take these diplomas as the highest
testimonials that we can give you and
demonstrate in your lives, that, for you,
these schools have fulfilled their mission.
