It waa thli exclamation that attracted
the attention of an Arous emUi try as he
was passing up Second avenue the other
day, the sound emerging from the alley
just west of the Harper, and n ion close
examination waa found to emanate from
the lungs of a small boy who was ad
dressing his companion in tlu mitnner

The urchin who had given utiersnce to
the expression heretofore merit oned was
peeping out of the alley, and close upon
his heels with a countenance equally ex
pressive of eagerness and misohiet was
his chum. The object of thei- scrutiny
was an old man with white iard and
slouch bat, while unde his arm he cars
nea an oia fashioned umbrella He was
overhauling a couple of boys on the Sec

"How does the new school law work

whs Mr. Kimball's reply.

'I am pleased to say, that as a rule
there are none. But there is a degree of
indifference shown to the law that is ac
countable in a larae measure -or its dis
regard, rather tbsn a disposition to
violate it. People don't undi ntand the
law thoroughly, but when it is once ex
plained they almost unanimoi sly favor it
and abide bv it."
"The truaDts seem to know you pretty
Know me! I guess they do; butX
manage to get hold of most of them, and
I am not long in persuading them that
school is the best place for tlem "
In order to remove some doutts and
misunderstandings that have arisen in
regard to the scope and meaning of the
provisions of the compulsory educational
law of Illinois. Dr. Richard Sdwards.tlie
slats superintendent of puMic instruc
tion, baa rendered the following deeii-iotis
in which it is understood he s supported
r-y the attorney-general:
The first section of the compulsory
educational law contains tie following
1. Every person shall si nd his chil
dren to school at least sit teen weeks
each year, provided the children are be
tween the ages of seven snd fourteen
2. He must send s.irh children te
school consecutively (regulitlf ) fur at
least eieht weeks.
8, The time for sending -urb children
to school shall commence with tbe be
ginning of the first term f tbe school
year, or as soon thereafter ss due notice
shall be srved udu tbe person Laving
control of such children.
Tbe above are tbe dtitiei imposed by
this law upon the parent or other person
having control nf children.
Then follows a clause wtich provides:
"For every neglect of irh duty, the
parent or other person may be fined and
sent to jail until tbe fine is jaid."
Here, then, is tbe penalty . It may be
imposed, as the law says, "for every ne
gleet of such duty," as abo"e prescribed.
In answer to the Qtiestioti from a State
Rrgitter reporter, "When may tbe pen
alty lie imposed?" Dr. El wards replied :
"It may be imposed when tbe parent
neglects to send bis child to school six
teen weeks In each year; it may he im
posed when tbe parent neelects to send
bis rhild to reboot for at least eight con
secutive weeks in the year; it may be im
posed when tbe parent neglects to com
mence sending his child It school at the
beginning of the first term of tbe school
year, provided the school board does its
duty by giving notice to sich delinquent
parent. If tbe board, upon Investigation,
find tbat such children are being properly
educated in a private achcol, or other
wise, no penally need be i n posed "
"What is the proper course for a school
board to pursue under tb.ii Jaw?"
"In my opinion each board should first
appoint a truant officer. Care should be
exercised in the selection f a truant offi
cer. He should be a careful man, pos
sessed of good judgment. It should con
stantly he his aim to set all children of
school sge into the school t, rather than
devote bis time to securiig convictions
under the law. He sboul 1 interview de
linquent parents and solicit them to send
their children to school. It seems
to me that there vlll be time
enough to consider -.he "penalty
after parents are not Bed and pos
itively refuse to educiite their chil
dren. The compulsory educational law
was not passed for the pi rpose of inflict
ing penalties merely, but it was passed
for the purpose of enabling school boards
to get all children of proir age to attend
school. In the enforcement of such a
law the penalty is the last thins to be
considered. As a rule, it should be in
flicted only when all otier menus fail
"How does this romp ilsory law affect
the private and parochial schools?" Dr
Edwsrds answer was:
"The compulsory law provides that
directors msy approve any private school
and allow pupils to at end it provided
such privste school teat ties tbn subjects
of readme, writing, arithmetic, history of
tbe United Htstes and (eograpby all in
the English language. I take It tbat the
compulsory law does not necessarily in
terfere with tbe workings of any private
or parochial school, unless such school
fails to teach the brand es above enumer
ated in tbe English let guage. The re'
sponsibility of approving these private or
sectarian schools rests t pon tbe boards of
directors and boards of education of tbe
public schools. Under the provisions
of tbe compulsory law, there can be no
obiection to the teaching of German and
religion in these secttrian schools pro
video tbe common ac tool branches are
well taught In tbe English language.'

John J. Wbeelan. an old resident of
Rock Island, died at home, 2217 Fifth
avenue, at 6 o'clock last evening. Mr.
Wbeelan was a carpenter.and for twenty
years he had been employed at bis trade
at Rock Island arsenal. He was at his
work yesterdsy as usual, and shortly
after 1 o'clock was seized with apoplexy.
He wss conveyed borne in a semi-conscious
condition and Drs. Barth and Cow-
den were quickly summoned, but he sank
gradually nntil the last flicker of life
vanished at tbe time stated
He was born in County Carlow, Ireland,
March 25, 1824, and came to America in
1S4T. Three years later he was married
in New York to Mary Mclntire and in
1854 the conple came to Rock Island.
This city has since been tbeir home. Tbe
following children survive with the
mother: W. II. Wbeelan in Chicago, J.
O, in Kansas City, C. R.. Mary E.. J.
l , T. F. and H. L , in Rock Island. He
led an honest and sober life, wss a kind
hukband and an affectionate and indul
gent father. He was much attached to
his home, where he will be missed as
only bis family can realize.
Tbe funeral will be held at 8 p. m. to
morrow from the house to St. Joseph's
McCabe & Young's operatic colored
minstrels gave an enjoyable performance
before a small audience at Harper's thea
tre last evening;. The features were
mostly new the singing and dancing ex
cellent, and many of tbe incidents of the
entertainment excruciatingly funny. All
left the theatie highly pleased.
N xt Monday evening we are to have
tbe greatest minstrel organization on tbe
road, under tbe proprietorship and man
a?ement of George Wilson, of Barlow,
Wilson, Primrose & West fame, and un
doubtedly tbe finest burnt coik artist of
tbe day, and the originator of most of tbe
fun now seen on tbe minstrel stage.
Wilson's company appeared at Daven
port to a packed bouse last night, and
all who attended were delighted, and will
jump at the opportunity to tee tbe show
again Monday night. Tbe Davenport
papers ibis morning are profusa in tbeir
praise of the performance, and one ex
change recently said of tbe performance
This fine combination made its appear
ance last night at tbe academy of music
before a large and fashionable audience.
Tbe audience was never quiet from tbe
time the curtain went up on tbe hand
some set of the "Derby Day in England'
to the close of the performance with the
drolleries of Hi Tom Ward and tbe Fuls
ton Bros. Laughter followed applause,
and applause laughter, from beginning to
end. Everything in the performance was
new and nothing dragged. Tbe ballads
and comic songs were exceedingly well
rendered, and the sextette did some ex
cellent work, especially their rendition of
"Crowded with tbe Tempest," from Er
nani. Tbe close of the first part entitled
"Tbe Oolah. or Brigands in Clover." a
parody on two popular light operas of
the day, was fresh and bright. Tbe olio
was all tbat could be desired, and went
with a snap that waa delightful. George
Wilson was a host in himself and as al
ways, was irresistible.' He, too, was as
irresistible as bis show. Tne Kirmess
dance is a new feature in tbe minstrel
business, but took well last night, as the
handsome dressing and gracefully exe
cuted figures deserved. AU in all.Geerge
Wilson has tbe best company be has ever
bad. and tbe performance was tbe best of
u kind that has ever been given in Nor
folk for years.
