How lopg ivotild tliat gentleman have one live In lola before he could acquire the rights of citizenship? He would compel. If tie ' found he could not abolish the high school, students to attend the schools nearest to their homes. After, all his abolishing He would do away with the superintendents of City Schools and leave the remnant pf a once-efficjent school s^steth without a directing head, to pass Into a condition where It would abolish itself. Again the gentleman says: And I dp not think there would be any question about the outcome of this election if taxpayers only were allowed to vote, and I am proud to say that we have lots of voters in lola who are not taxpayers, who arc too honest and conscientious to vote on a bond proposition. The gentljjman commends those non tax-payers who are too conscientious to vote on the high school proposition. If. under our statutes, the public high school education I? a matter of "charity." then lib is right. But I protest that "hiy child-or your child, Mr. Common Citizen, was born into the world n free America, with the right and the necessity to have educational privil- o^cs. the best that can be given, for the pood of the State. The children of that gentleman have had the advantages of Iota's High Schor)!, and to some extent, of the liif^hor Institutions of learning. The Kcntloman seems ready now to abolish these school.'!. Just'.'I few reasons why the new high school biiiltting propo.sltlon should Kuoceeil: Present building was inadet|iia(c ten year.s ago. The atti<' was fltt»d up for the use of four rooms. The basement is fitted up for man unl training. Each day 206 high school students use the attic. During the week almost 200 grade students use the attfc. Eighty-three school boys use the basement. During the week 120 grade boys use the basement. The basement has an eight-foot ceil ing, and has to be artificially lighted at all times, and is unfit from every viewiwint for the manual training of boys The attic is a fire trap. Th.ero is no w^ay for the attic to be heated or ventilated, except by allowing tlic boat to ascend through the stairway. Inv-case of fire tiiese pupils would he unable to escape except by inadequate fire escapes. It is a. sin. a shame, and a disgrace tlsat lola should endanger the live.i of her boys and girls In such manner. There are 7jj boys nnd girls in this fire trap at a time; can lola longer take this terrible riskr If your boy or giri, Mr. Taxpayer, was caught in this trap some day, would you then vote the necessary bonds? I know what your answer will be March 9th. Yours very truly. J. E. HENDERSON. Who. Is the Taxpayer? Editor Register: When bond elections are up We hear much about fne burdens -proposed to be placed on the taxpayer, it has always seemed to me that we are prone to get peevish over the little burden we place on ourselves to maintain our city and schools and the state,and county.

WRXNSlEINIIEMOGRItT RIINKS Hodges and Thompson Factious in u Verbal BatOe Over Method of Electing Officers. Topeka, Feb. 23.—A fight between the Thompson and Hodges factions broke out in last night's annual banquet of the Kansas Democratic cluh over a change in the club's constitution. Grant Harrington led one faction and W. U (Ironjaw) Brown led the opposition. Harrington proposed to hold the election of officers at 4 o'clock on the afternoon of the day on which the banquet is held. Brown vigorously opposed any change in the present system of holding the election at the close of the annual Washington's birthday banquet. Brown's lead was supported by a large element of Thompson supporters present and the Th6mpson element won. The fight gave a large number not on the program a chance to make a speech. In one corner of the hall a small black haired man rose and shouted: "Mr. President." "The name please?" asked president T. J. Sweeney, of Lawrence. "Sapp, W. J. Sapp," said the small man. "I beg your pardon, I didn't see the plug hat," apologized Sweeney. Sapp said it was ten years ago that the Kansas DomocrHtic chib was or-, ganized. "The coiistitution adopted then is better than this," said Sapp. The Hodges faction laid its cards on the table when W. P. Feder declared that the Hodges Democrats are demanding the changes Harrington proposed. "Read that old constitution before we vote on a new one," demanded A. P. T«nn Wilson, of Topeka. •Why read it? We all know it by lii'art ar.d there is no good in it," :-;ai!l John E. Wagner of Lamed. "If S'ou know it, recite it," demanded Wilson. But Wagner declined to recite it. Bill Sapp moved to table the whole matter but the wrangle went on. Sapp said that injecting politics into a former democratic club had wrecked'*it. Brown said if the business meeting is held at 4 o'clock in the afternoon it gives a small element a chance to control the organization. \ "Elect officers at the banquet and give all a chance as we do now," said Brown. W. H. Kemper was called upon to read the old constitution. He said it wag much like the one proposed. Ben Gateskill, oi' Girard pleaded for peace. Most of us don't care wha< kind of a constitution wo have," said Gateskill We came here to listen'to our regular speeches. We don't care for this wrangle. There is too much discord and persona}' jealousy in the Democratic party, and this row Ipn't helping it any." W. P. Feder, of the Hodges faction rose to speak again for the resolu- Uon. "Sit down, we've heard you once," shouted the prowd. President : Sweeney put Ironjaw Brown's amendment to continue to hold election of officers in the evening instead of in the afternoon as desired by the Hodges faction. The motion carried and the new constitution as amended was unanimously adopted. Upon motion of F. M. Pearl, of Hiawatha, the club sent a telegram to President Wilson conveying the best wishes of Kansas democracy and pledging the: support of Kansas in his neutrality pi-ograra. —Register Want-Ads bring results.
