I the Hoard of Education of Jamaica vlltagn
Insists upon having Samuel 1 Cisco pay a fine of
nor serve five days In the county Jai nt Long
Island City according to the sentence passed
upon him on Thurrdar by Justice 1 F 1 Wood
because ho being a colored man refuses lend
his children t tho colored school of tho town It
wilt Ktt Itself Ito n perk of trouble I It loe
further and nfler making a martyr of Cisco
prosecutes fifty moro negro of the town upon
the same tcoreaa counsel saya It II I nbout todo
there la I no lolling what nity happen In Jamaica
The case of Cisco ts not n personal one but
It is I the outgrowth of a spirit of dissatisfaction
with the doing of tho Hoard of Idticatlon
which 1ms been growing among tho colored
people of Jamaica for some time and I cnme to
n head lart fall when the school season was
about to open
Up to that lime Tnmnlci had been provided
with but two schools Olin of these was the
old school In the centre of tho town where for
many cars the white children bid I been drilled
In their A H Cn and the other wni tho colored
school the southern part of tho town beyond
0 thee railroad tracks This colored school
was a generation old nod for all of that
lima the colored citizens of Jamaica bad
accepted It as a llxed fact anti cent
I their children to It when they sent
them to school at I without n thought
Aq to whether or not the Hoard of Education
1 had a right to designate one school for colored
L children and to keep these children out of other
t4 schools Perhaps the Hoard may hnvo had that
j power when tho law was passed under which
that colored school was built and at first main
r tained for It wns done under a special
school law relating to Jamaica passed
in Iflo3 I U I known In thu Codo of
Public Education as chapter olll of tho Laws
of 1853 After declaring that thereafter the
village of Jamaica shall b known ns one school
district and specifying the powers of Its Hoard
of Educntton section 14 tho that
lucoton seclon 1 of net says n
school for colored children may be organized
and that the said school shall bo supported In
tho same manner us the other schools of tho
t district are to bo supported under tho authority
of the same act
Jamaica has a pretty Inrgo percentage of col
ored people nnd most of tin n llv e south of tho
railroad near where tho colored school stands
As long as there were only tvvo schools the col
ored people sent their children to this school
although II I asserted i that t It did 1 not and does not
offer the all advantages that thu white chil
dren enjoy In the other nchools A year or two
npn It became evident that more school I room was
needed and two new schoolhouses were
built both for primary pupils One of these U i
at tho enter i nil of thu town and tho
other nt the western cud Tho old central
school nlso contained primary grades besides
grammar and academic classes The new
primary schools were opened at the beginning
of the present si hool 5 car last fall Jun before
the schools opened Ihe Hoard of Education
divided thn school district Into subdistricts and
then It had circulars distributed In which it di
rected that parent or guardians of children of
school ago should send their children to the par
ticular school of their subdistrict
This was what roused Cisco He lives away
up In thu eastern end or town and not more
than two or three blocks from the now primary
school there I It was threequarters of a mile
t down to Iho colored school On the day that
school opened Mrs Cisco took her children and
offered them ns pupils nt the new scbonl
And they refused 1 to admt them asked
reporter to whom she was telling the story yes
Did they she exclaimed They pretty
nearly threw us out
> 01 Cicii is n man of some repute In thin
town and espci tally among the colored people
Holt a tall and > IIr RmlI 111 with eiUzlod hair
j Mrs Cisco In I a good deal younger than hu lu and
heat y enough to uiako two of him
My Husband continued I 1 Mrs Cisco IsOO
oh 1h ltf
yenrs old and he wart born hero nnd lived hero
I all his Urn and his father lived hero for forty
years before him We own this house and are
taxpayer nnd wo are bound to hnvo our
I rlzbls I have five children and Amelia
S wholl I la ears old Is I the oldest
of them They ar all of school age and I want
thcrrfto C to school I havent any objections
to the colored school because It Is I a colored
school but It ts I too far away Even I before the
now schools wetu opened 1 sent Amelia by train
for two years to a school In Brooklyn My hus
band wont pay his line and they can do any
thing they want to to I us
I hey say If he doesnt pay thp fine and then
F send the children to school alto that they wil
arrest your husband again and tine him 50 or
L send him to jail for thirty das or both What
will ho do aliout thiu
They can send him or both of im to jail ana
4 keen us there but we wont lIar any Inc nor
T end our children to thn colored school
L A few minutes later Mr Cisco was met com
ing homo He had been attending to his scav
sneering business He wasnt sent to jai on
ti I Thursday night In accordance with his sen
S tence but was allowed to have his liberty for a
duty or to to lot him think over tho situation
and perhaps conclude to pay his fine and capit
ulate It was also said that Justice Wood was
t a little uncertain as t the law
Cisco hadnt weakened a bit He amrmed all
t that his wife bad said and added that he wanted
them to put him In jail
Then we will seo who Is right he said
Leander H Faber who conducted the case
against Cisco said last night that a capias bad
been Issued against him and that hn would be
ts arrested and put in Jai this morning

s Section 14 makes It a misdemeanor to violate
the other provisions of the act and provides fur
a penalty of S3 fine for the first offence and S1
floe or Imprisonment up to thirtY days or both
for a second offence Iho complaint was made
against Cisco by Attendance Officer Wright
upon the ground that Cisco had refused to send
bIt 11yearold son Jacob to school
Cisco had said in his defence that lie had ar
ranged to give his daughter mel 1 cents I
week to teach the lounger children but Mrs
Cisco brushed that plea abide summarily yes
bbe Isnt competent in teach them she said
and we dont pretend thnt she Is We are tax
payers and wit want our rights

giving authority t ischool Hoards to obllgu col
ored children to t attend schools HI I apart for
them that such authority wns IIart Ihe
act authorizing Ibo building nod maintaining
at separate colored schools and that thereforu
the only question was whether the colored
school nt Jamaica was equal In quality to the
5 L other school Hu therefore granted an
alternative writ which Is I now awaiting
