The boar 1 of education held a special
session last, evening, President Thomas
and Directors Durham, Knowlton and
Bartb. belnj present
Truant Officer Kimball submitted his
report for the month of December as fol
lows: To the Board of Education Kock Ialand School
I make the following report. During
the month December I have found
eight boys of compulsory school age who
have not been in attendance at school the
present yetr. five of whom have been
placed in sbool; the others go in after
the holidays. I have arrested fifteen
truants whljh were returned to their re
spective teachers or to their parents. I
have found several families containing
enrolled children, some of which have
been retailed from school in periods
which seemed to me to be of unnecessary
length. In most cases I have persuaded
them to return their children to school
with a pronise of keeping them there
more consu ntlv. Respectfully submitted,
B. II. Kim b alu Truant Officer.
Rock Iblutd, Dec. 21, 188.
Mr. Kimtall also directed the attention
of the boa: d to a case in South Park,
where the family had refused to comply
with the Uw relative to having their
children vaccinated, and asked for in
structioDs as to the course to pursue in
the matter. This ellcted an interesting
discussion of the subject of compulsory
vaccination, in which all the members
The queaiion was discussed in its vari
ous aspects and the final decision arrived
at was that no evasion should be allowed
either of the law of compulsory education
or of any of the conditions upon which
children are permitted to attend our pub
lic schools. The law which provides the
blessings of free schools with a view of
bettering ths opportunities of the future
citizen for the active duties of life, and
looking to he same great end makes it
compulsory that for a certain period each
year be twee a certain ages children must
attend schotl not necessarily the public
school, but it is essential that they must
ave the adt antage of a certain amount of
instruction each year. With an aim to
protect thesj children, and also to estab
lish a uniform system of instruction, the
law makes certain reasonable reouire-
ments of those children who are public
school pup Is such as the presents
tion or certiorates of vaccination, and the
use of certain stipulated forms of study.
The first great object of the law is edu
cation, and Hecondary only to this is the
preservation of the health of the yuung.
The law looks to the best interests of the
masses, and the narrow-minded prejudi
ces of a few should not be allowed to over
throw or evtn disregard it. The members
of the board of education are sworn to
compel obedience to the law governing
the public schools, and with this be
fore them, there was but one
course to pursue to instruct the
truant officer to notify the obsti
nate family that their children must
go to school somewhere, but if they were
to enjoy the benefits of the public school
system they must be vaccinated. And
should they disregard these advices to
issue warraata for the arrest of the
parents for violation of the law. The
board has not shown a disposition to
evade the lav or disregard its duty. It
has taken a ntand that all law abiding
citizens will uphold and commend. Its
position is e isy to be understood. It is
simple the law mnst be obeyed. Who
says not has no right to the enjoy
ments of An erican citizenship.

Rock Island, Jan. 18. I have noticed
in your paper that when you refer to the
public squares, you write or them as
Union square, "Court House square
and "Franklin square." Perhaps you are
not advised that this is not correct. At
the time of the revision of the city ordi
nances in 1885, the city council fixed the
names of the squares as follows: Union
square was named Spencer square as
stated in the ordinance "in commemora

and so continued, the city having pos
session of it, and exercising ownership
over it as a public park.
About the year 1868 a certain party,
who, in fact, represented the heirs of Jo
nah Case, brought suit in fhe United
States court in Chicago to recover this
square from the city. The suit failed,
and to support the city's claim Judge
Spencer very earnestly assisted. Judge
Soencer was one of the sterling men of
Rock Island . His home character com
mended him to everybody, and his name
given to this square is a public recogni
tion of the iudge, and I hope the name
of Speneer square will be recognized.
