There has been so much comment on
the recent whipping of Perry Howard
in the 1'lerco street school that a BKE
reporter yesterday sought an interview
with Mr. J. IJ. Atkins , a member of the
school board , to ascertain if possible just
what the animus of that body was con-
concerning the matter. To a query as
to what the board intended to do , Mr.
Atkins replied :
"There has boon no complaint made
to the board , therefore it has made no
investigation. All that bus been said
or done lias boon individually , so all
I can give you is my own opinion , and
not that of the boiu'd. "
"What do you think nboutthe charges
of 'brutal clubbing' that have been made
in connection with this caseV"
"I think that the boy got a good
spanking , and undoubtedly feels rather
wire. There has been considerable till If
about the 'club. ' Have you seen itV
No ? Well , it is about a yard long , and
Mr. Hell says it weighs six ounces.
It is claimoil to bo a 'dangerous
instrument , ' and it is , without any
doubt. If it should bo rammed
down u pupil's throat or poked Into his
eye , it would cause serious trouble , but
ho would any stick that might bo pro
cured , and for that reason it is a dan
gerous instrument. If it were made of
pine it would break at the first stroke.
We have sent it back to boused as here
tofore , and we would not have done so
had we believed that it was lee severe.
The schools of this city are in an excel
lent condition , and I don't want the people
ple to receive an erroneous impression
in regard to them. There are about
two thousand live hundred pupils now
enrolled , and this term is about half
completed. This is the first complaint
that has reached our ears , and I think
that is doing remarkably well. There
is no question but what the discipline
of the schools mu t be maintained , and
it has been demonstrated that to do so
there must bo recourse to punishment.
Wo tried it here for a while without it ,
but it was recalled. There was a case
last year of a man who made a terrible
row because his boy was whipped
in school , but this year the
'joy is larger and is getting
to bo almost too much for the
old gentleman , and ho now comes to us
and asks us to help him control his son.
There are several ugly boys in the
schools , and some of them have drawn
knives on tho.teachers. . . What would
you or I do in' such a caseV This same
Miss Harris carries a scar on her hand
vhero a boy hit her , and at one time it
vas considered very serious We can't
uluirge a teacher just because some-
mo is dissatisfied. See how many pow-
jrs there are above us who could
oinstato her. Wo must have good
auso , and in this case I think there is
tone. Mr. Lynchurd has been very
jontlemanly anil pleasant , although
ather persistent , and I have no doubt
Ml what he will see things differently
vhcn he gets a little cooler. We wish
, he pupils to inform their parents of
vhat goes on in school , but they must
lot threaten their teachers. 1 think
, he affair will be amicably settled with
ittlo further controversy. "
It appears that Mr. Atkins' hope that
, ho matter would be amicably adjusted ,
s not in a fair way to bo realized. The
. .rate stop-father of Perry Howard is
still on the war-path , and he's secured
in alliduvit from another paren who
jlaims to have had a child whipped too
lOvercly. The following istheallldavit :

a formal complaint of the case of Perry

u formal complaint to your honorable body of
' of cruul urul ' llhiblo
u I'UHO 'unjust punishment
iatlieted by two of tlio teachers of the public
schools upon one of 'ho pupils. The punish
ment and the instrument used to accomplish
it I consider to bo unjustifiable and out of
place , in any public school , and decidedly
wrong in the splendid public schools of this
city , of which yon are the guardians. I desire -
sire to bo called upon for either un oral or u
written statement df the case before the
wholu board , or n committee selected for that
pur | > oso. 1 desire to havu submitted to the
whole board the Instrument which I am
pained ami surprised to learn has been long
used for the purpose of iullicting bruises on
the tender llcsh of little children. I desire
uNo to mibmlt the accompanying utlidavit
concerning another and parallel case of un
just severity , sworn to by the father
of the child. Hoth of these offenses
were committed by the same teachers , Miss
Harris and Miss liuehel , employed in the
Pierce street school. 1 dc ire whatever op
portunity may bo necessary to enable
mo to fully sustain the demand I now make
that tlio.two teachers bo susieiided from
their positions as teachers In the public
schools , and that the "paddlo" of the danger
