Word was received from Miss Kate Wiley that her mother whom she had been attending for several weeks, died Tuesday, January 3rd. Miss Wiley will probably remain with her sister in Chicago. In her resignation from her position as cottage matron from the Home sustains a severe loss. Her fourteen years of service here have been eminently successful. The sympathy and best wishes of her associates in work, as well as all the pupils who have been under her care, go with her.

The Wheeling Register, July 17, 1896

Madison School Editor of the Register Sir: I wish to add a few words to endorse the noble efforts of A. Clark, Dr. Ulr{illegible}, and other gentlemen of the Board of Education, who champion the cause of Miss Julia Wiley.The writer has personally known Miss Wiley for years, as a taxpayer and patron of Madison School, and having three of my my children as pupils, I think I have a right to be heard, especially when I believe that an act of injustice has been done. There is no lady who ever taught at Madison who stands higher in the estimation of the pupils and their parents, or guardians, than "Miss Julia Wiley," noted as she is for her noble, Christian character, scholarly attainments, and kind treatment of her pupils. In the years that have past her friends are "legion" throughout the district and city where ever she is known. I am surprised to see that any one who calls himself a representative of the taxpayers and patrons of Madison school, oppose the will of the people of the Island, who placed them in that position, by so unjustly taking a stand against such a faithful servant as Miss Wiley for little or no reason.
I trust that the majority of the Board of Education will co-operate with Mr. Clarke and Dr. Ulrich and see that justice is done this "lady", and will "reinstate" her in her old position, and let there be mere charity shown in the future and there will be less friction. Vox Populi
