Summary/Abstract: The paper tries to answer the question how fra Ilija Starčević, in the circumstances of the Turkish rule, managed to open the first elementary school at Tolisa, Bosnia, in 1823. In this context enquiries are made about his relationship with the mayor, captain Husein-bey Gradaščević, who had been the captain of the Posavina River Basin since 1821. The paper investigates the role of captain Husein in granting the permit for the opening of this school, but also the role of fra Ilija Starčević in the preparation of the rebellion of captain Husein Gradaščević, AKA Dragon of Bosnia. Also considered is the attitude of fra Ilija Starčević to the representatives of the Austrian rule in the Trans-Sava County as well as the attitude of Husein captain Gradaščević to the Austrian rule in Croatia, or to the Vienna Court.
