'school V ork. Practically the only di ference of opinion, therefore, is no on the 1 undamental iiuestion , us t whether a new building Is needed, bv. upon the comparativery unimportan questl9ii as to whether that ne< building •fehall cost ?40,000. or ?80,00( The necessity of a new building o some sort being conceded, the whol debate, therefore, turns upon th question as to how good a buildin lola cat afford to construct. It is jus such a question as confronts an; business concern ^ that has outgrow Its old juarters and Is trying to de cide how much of an addition t •build. In one case as in the othe thire are just two problems to solve First, I ow "much liioney can we a) ford to spendi whhiut laying an un due'buijden upon ourselves; and se< orid, Shall! we build just barely tli . room tt at we need now, or shall w make kome provision, for futur growth? , The answer to the lirst question i the case of lola, would seem to b that if tor other reasons it is wise.t in^fit $80,000 in a high sciiool buil<^ 'ing the district can afford jit. Men- bers of; the Board or Education wh have given the matter the most e> haustivc examination, declare the ne' bonds <^n be carried and paid ofl when t ley. are-dire with an increas in the ax levy^at will add but fi teen cents to llfch thousand, dollar of assessed yali^ation. That is to sa. the additional tSJibt would not amour to so much as a.doUar a year to ai: citizen Jwhose property was aasease at a lefss valuation than $6,500,—an' that n^eans thkithe.-annual; burde upon the averagj^tax payer Would t equivalent to the cost of a few ci gars or a few slicks of chewing gun Certaiiily the (Hfference between th tax burden involved In voting $80,00 and that whiclf would follow votin jl40.00 (Jr— fifteen cents a yfear pe thousand and ['seven and 'one -hS' cents n the other,—is not one th;- ^ would be felt by any citizen of lol no matter h<^ slarge his property in terests may bei The Register is a , niuci averse ifipaying high taxes a any good citizeij has a right to be, an- it would not urge a bond issue whicij it believed would be burdensome am oppressive either upon itself or upoi 'any of its neighbors. It is for th proposed issue: because it does no belie\]e any tjtizen would feel th> load <j)r would .5regret the expenditure when j once it pad been made. Shall we provide barely for thi present need br sl^aU we make? pre vision' for thd future? That is ihV seconid question and the answer to ' virtually measures the difference tha: existd between those who favor a'f $80,OC0 and thpse who ask for a $40J. 000 biiiding. [The latter point to ;hc fact pat' if (he larger building i< erect<!d and tiie "JuUior High School" is orjganlzed ifs planned the result will be to leaye seven or eight roomt in till! ward'buildings empty. That if true-f-but jit does not alter the fact that I nearly liwice as many students are jiow crowded Into the High jSchooI building as it -cs ever Intend- iCd to accomm|jdate, nor does it alter the f|irther fact that it is impossible jto relieve thii congested condition without; constructing, a new building. The ttudents jn the Hfga School can- j; not ^e scattered ^roiJnd town. They [ Riustibe assembled in one building, and when that building becomes inadequate another must be provided, even if it does result in leaving a few rooms ifi some of the ward buildings temporarily unoccupied. But vhat barm is done if It does happen tbit we -have more room for our schools than they need at this particular moment? That condition is bound to be but temporary.. lola s going to grow larger, not smaller. Lincoln school is already crowded ind with the- new population that ioubtless will AH up chat part o! town when the new smelter begin: operations, it is practrcally certain hat the present building will not accommodate all the children who wil" seek admission there. The four roomt •vhich-the erection of the new build- ng would at the present moment va- ;ate in this school will almost cer- ainly be needed within another year. • t is,nearly equally certain, that thi our Irooms which would be emptieci n thje Jefferson school also will bi ilied again within a short time. But even if there never was a de nand for any of these rooms in thi .vard schools, the largument for ai idequate new High Schobl building: ATOuld still stand, for the attendance ipoh the High School is'certain tf ;ontinne to increase. In the face o: he degline in our population the Higl ichool enrollment has doubled withir. he past six years,—duetto the faci hat an ever higher percentage of 8th ;rade pupils are entering the Higl ?chool. It should not be forgotter. •ither that with a spwndid new built ng, splendidly equipped as this on<, vouid be, very many families will bi .ra\yn here by reason of our superioi ducatipnal facilities, while the num- ler' of students who would come ir Tom the country; districts would bt greatly increased. The Register ha; •very confidence 'that within a yea; fter the new High School is fin shed not less than five hunSrec! itudents will be swarming through, ts hails, and every one of its twenl.^ ooms will be serving a good purpose It is the judgment of the Register herefore, that a new High Schoo; luilding is needed, that it would b( ruer economy to spend • $80,000 thai 40,000 upon it and that to vote bonds p the larger amount would not im- lose an unduly burdensome tax upon he property of the district. The Secretary of Labor, after an nvestigation covering many months f time, has made a report in which le admits that the wages paid in the .ottery indnstry in the United Statet ange from 90 toi 600 per cent highei han those paid in that industry ii, ither countries, and yet the only hing he can think or to .save th( Vmerican industry ts for American nanufacturers to "practice economy.' t would require right smart econ- imy to make up for iTiat difference ir. vages The country has the Republican '.enators to thank for the defeat o! he President's bill for the govern- nent purchase of merchant ships,—: neasure that was as uuwlse political- y as it was unsound economically. A New York jury has awarded : nan C cents damages for the alier.a ion of his wife's affections,—and al -hree of the parties concerned fee eeply insulted.
