I a l/l* IftMtrm mjr iwej vy vnm r? vtzc ?9cvrrvi? i of Waik*nttnn?Gentlemen : By theexlstjng * 'rev ?!ations for the government of the public schools,'* an appeal to the general board it not denied to auv irsrber or citisen when d< fT-rencesof opinion materially bffecttng the school interest* arise. After lorrg postponement, I am constrained to ask your Impartial consideration of the question whether the powers of each sub-board enable it to nullify tne laws of the general board, and especially whether a single trustee is vested in school matter* with greater powers than th? Mavor' This nullification having been actually enforced by Mr. Wbyte, trustee of the Fourth District, I ask yon to Inform the teachers whether yon expect them to obey your printed Uwi or the verbal decisions of a single trustee, or even of a sub-board? You will perceive, gentlemen, that a principle Is here involved that must either preserve the dignity of yonr honorable body or destroy the public school system of onrclty. I will present tin-latest case in detail. You are aware that I was unanimously eltcW-d teacher for the night school oT the Fourth Di?trict. Knowing that the general board bed decided the hours of session to be from C)f to 9>* p. in , and that the tub-board had declined to furnish such light as would make the school a success in that respect, I declined the position I did not believe the hours jadieious, but f asked no charge on my account Judge, gentlemen, of my surprise when 1 found that uiy successor was permitted to ocnit one-third of the whole teaching time. Supposing Mr. Whyte to be ignonntof tfcefact that Le had no legal ^ower to nullify your regulations, I called h W attention to them. He then as.1 ..I k. V. .. -4 A 1A *1 rrtru uia uciici uc uau mr puvvcr Ki Sim idq general rules if lie thought proper, and that he wou .d submit the question of the hour* of session to tb? pupils of the school. Being unable to under stand tbis novel application of the popular sovereignty" principle, 1 naturally turn to you and a?k, is this the law? Or is it to tbose teachers woo are working the full time,or to myself. who declined the teacherehipbecause I could not accept it. and at the some time obey your rules ? In order to deprive this statement of any personal character, I wish to say that 1 entirely agree with Mr. byte as to the expediency of a two hour* session, for the reason that both teachers and pupils approach tbelr tasks at night in noeonditlon for an effective sess on of three hours: both haviog been engaged at labor during the day?to ay nothing of the effect of a long night session 19 repelling that very c lass of pupils from theschools presence it is most desirable to have. Had this, geati -men, been the onlycase In wblch your laws nave been violated. It might have passed without appeal Several months since 1 called the attention of ths .Mayor to the fact that pupil* suspended for misconduct at one school were promoled to a higher school in advance of the most meritorious, aithough vonr printed regulations declare * that no pupil suspended at one school shall be adin1tt*-d to another except by a vote of the U . * *** ~~ * ? ~ ) T Wns tr.kll S^ao >.{ /> y-\tr1 1 / I * OV>aiu vi * m *s >?? ? wu *<. * luistvuuu1 ? iu a pupil was rewarded, ana good conduct substantially a caiamity to the meritorious pupils. * The Mayor deal red uie to bring tbe case to j our notice, and remarked at tbe sim? time, that be rould not expect either tcacbers or pupils to obey tbe rules of tLe Board if they were violated by tbe trustee* themselves In order agiit to show you that this question is not raised by me solely in mv awn behalf. I will t-ttetaat advarecdpuffls of Primary No. 4jfuurth district, were transferred to Primary No 5, a short time previous to tbe Inst annual examination?a plain viol-itiou of your law. which says transfers I . i ii. a _ _ _ m _ ' U3ii uoi oe maae aiier January in each year. ' Tb? transfer was strongly remonstrated against bv Miss l'.rrma Keed, to whom jjieit injustice was done. Theett'ect of this tine of action is, to buiid up the reputation of one teacher at the expense of the labo. of another. Now, we must appeal to yon. to know whether you sustain these proceedings You hold ns responsible for the discipline of oar schools How can we inaiutaiu it, if our bands are tied by the favoritism of individual trustees?gentlemen who intimate that teachers are 44 too conscientious," and that "personal friends" of trustees are to be more regarded than others? Thus, we are embarrass d m enforcing tbe rules against tbe children of " personal friends" of miuibers of tbe board. Beside*, geatiewe*, bow is it possible that we can know who are tbe children of "personal friends ' unless a list of them is furnished These are some of the evils against which we have to contend Do you. gentlemen, say that we must submit uuietly to thein, or be removed. 1 think v?u will not say so. 1 think \ou a; e sincere when you declare in vour ann 1*1 reports in favor ol justice and impartiality to all, without regard to religion, politic*, or social position, and that the child of the humblest individual in this community shall be as sure of Justice, from you, at least, as that of the rno?t ti.ftueatial '-personal friends" with whom jour dnties, and those of your teachers, may be brought into conflict With heartfell thanks for the man? acts of kindness I hav? received at your hands during the twelve years I have keen in your service, ana hoping to rejolcc with you if the statement* mad' sbould prove, or examination, untixe, or ev?n exaggerated, 1 thai eontiune to be, with the highest esteem, youi obedicat servant, J. E. Thompios, Principal of Fourth District School The reading having been concluded? Mr VV bvV> stated that be was not prepared t: ??-> t?>i merits of the case Dreseat*d In thi fetter He ill f^plte taken by surprise by its tone When it wu proposed to organize the nlgb schools, It was understood that the teachers of th< day schools were to be employed at addltiona pay. It ?is the wish of the sub-board of thi Fourth District that Mr Thompson should b< employed to take charge of the niuht school li that district. Meeting with Mr Thompson on day as he was gelag to his school, the speaker fea< expressed tbis feeling of the sub-board to him and he replied that he was afraid he should bav to decline It on account of the delicate state of hi health: but en being told that no doubt an ai * tJ 1, % a a _] rugnKm couia w nuuc u\ wiucd oe couia r? celve the assistance of Mr Edson, who lives nea by, In cue of Us being at any time unable to pei form the duties of the c barge, be consented to tr It for a month, and he was accordingly nominate for the place by the uuanlmoua voice of the tat board, and as unanimously elected The aext da the sub board m*t to make arrangements for fui nishlng light and oth?-r matters required for th night school, to be opened on the following Fr 4a v Bight t The whole matter seeired to be satisfactory a round; but the speaker was rerr much surprised ?
