I FPbeA1Sd AjmUwft tie Sto -the 46blie cou-lgtn The protest of the Kenilworth Citisens Association against the attendance of the three children of John Colvin at the Keni worth white school, on the alleged grounds that Colvin is a colored man, has been re6 ferred by the District Commissioners tO the board of education for report. The prO, test from the Citizens' Associations was re ceived by the Commissioners late Saturday afternoon, and Commissioner Macfarland. immediately upon receiving the document, recommended that it be referred to the board of education. The matter has previously been placed before the board of education, but the Cit liens complained that the board has been tardy In Its action on the matter. Conse quently. in accordance with a resolution adopted by the association, the case was presented to the Commissioners. "Why was the matter referred by the Commissioners to the board of education. when it had previously been presented to the board?" Commissioner Macfarland was -asked by a Star reporter this morning. "The Commissioners have no official knowledge that it has been presented to the board," Mr. Macfarland replied. "The Commissioners also desire to ascertain all the facts from the board and to ascertain the board's views on the matter." "Is there any law in the District requir ing white and colored children to be sep arated in the public schools?" m "I do not know of any such law," the Gommissloier replied. "I do not know whether there is one or not." Question of Authtority. 06mmissioner Macfarland said he did, not know what authority the Commissioners would have in 1pe case. He stated that the Commissioners want to ascertain what the board of education has to say -about the matter and to get all the facts connected with the case in the possession of the board. . He said that the Commissioners will not know until they obtain all.the fActsa what they can or should do In the matter.' According to a number of officials and prominent citizens of the.District the tenor of the laws relating to public schools is taken to imply that separate schools shall be provided for white and colored children. but no specific provision could be cited to day requiring white and colored pupils to be taught in separate schools. In section 282 of the Revised Statutes of the United States, relating to the District of Columbia, passed in 1874, the folhowing provision is noted: "Any white resident shall be privileged to place his or her child or ward at any one of the schools provided for the education of white children in said portion of the Dis trict he or she may think proper to select, with the consent of the school board; and any colored resi4ent shall have the same rights with respect to colored schools." Board to Decide. In many of the other provisions relating to the public schools the white and colored schools are mentioned separately. It is also argued by attorneys that the b ard of education has authority to maintain sep arate schools for white and colored chil dren, and to decide such questions as the one under consideration. In the act of Con gress creating the board it is provided that "the board shall have complete 'Jurisdic tion over all administrative mattera-con4. nected with the public schools of the Dis trict of Columbia," excepting the expendl, tures of public funds for school purposes. Secretary Rodrick of the board of educa-' tion stated today that he knew of no law specifically stating that colored children should not attend white schools. He said that the reason the board had dropped the Colvin case was because Colvin assured-the board that he was not 'colored man. Op posed to Colvin's statement were ;the'al legations of the Citizens' Asgeiation,, It i, stated that Colvin claims that he has In dian blood 4' his veirW vAd not nero blood. History of the Trouble. The detailed report of the trouble on be half of the Kenilworth Citizens' Association was presented to the Commissioners by Al len W. Mallery, secretary of the associa tion. The association asks that the Com missioners inform the association as to their rights in the matter. The association is ignorant as to whether there Is any law prohibiting colored children from'attending a common school with white children in the District of Columbia. The association's statement shows tlit the attendance of three children, of JOMF Colvin, whom they state is a negro, at the Kenilworth school was first brought to their attention September 7, and that m6 committee, consisting of J. B. Homes, J. W. Fults and A. R. Lindsey, was appointed to protest against their attendance. The association's protest, it is stated, was filed with the board of education September 12, and under date of September 13 the as sociation was informed by a letter that the board had taken the matter under consida eration and that It had been referred to the proper committee. According to the association's statenient, a letter was-received from Secretary Rod rick September 23 stating that Supervising Principal Patterson had been instructed to ascertain whether coiored children were at tending the Kenilworth school, as stated, and if so to direct the said pupils to the nearest school for colored children. The statement continues to allege that a letter was sent to the supervising principal of the sixth division notifying him to instruct the principal of the Kenilworth school of the complaint, and to send any colored children attending the school to the nearest school for colored children. The statement says: "You will please note how adroitly the board of education re frained from mentioning names, throwing the responsibility on the principal of- the Kenilworth school, who happened to be--a woman. Takes No Action. The statement says further that the asso ciation met September 26 and took no ac tion, pending a decision from the board. On October 8 the school cosamittee reported to the association that no action had yet been taken by the board of education, and that the Colvin children were still attending tige school, in spite of the personal assurance, of several members of the board that .t~e association's request would be. complIed with.. October 17 a request was reeived from the board for written statements proving that Colvin hi a negro, Affidavit, to' this ef fect were filed with the board on Octob~er 6.A letter was received from the board on October 27, saying that the matter was being given very careful consideration and that "Mr. Colvin will be commaunicated Wie~ -at once, and as soon as a reply is received from him prompt action will be taken'in the matter." The communication from the association closes, with the statement that on Novem ber 7 the citizens of Kenilw'orth dec~ded the board bad been given ample time, at 1. it was decided to appeal the case to the Commissioners.
