SOMETHING MUST BE DONE.
There are some who do not li
agree with us in the view we 0
published last week relating to S
making some provision to raise a
funds enough to carry on the ar
school for a period of nine months. !
They think we are asking too I
much when we suggest that the s
trustees be authorized by Law to n
enforce a proper contingent fee,
or that property valuations be 1
There is no taxpayer in the o
district more aversed to paying C
taxes than we are. at the same i
time we realize the fact that s
taxes mast be paid, and there o
is nothing the money can be ex- a
pended for, which will give bet- e
ter returns than education. We n
have a fine school equipment u
and we clust devise some means
to maintain it. Money is needed
and it must come, if not from
those who patronize the school
then out of the property that is t
dnhanced by being in close
touch with excellent educational I
facilities. Do away with our school
and in less than twelve months
property valuations widl de
crease fifty per cent, and the de
crease will continue from year
to year until it becomes value- t
less, therefore. from a mercenary i
standpoint alone it pays to main
tain a firstclass school, the
greater profits going to the'
"We are paymg taxes enough"
say some, but the fact is we are!
not paying enough to prevent I
our school's finances running
short. and we all must admit, t
the teachers are not receiving
extravagant salaries. If there
are a poorly paid class of people
it is the teachers in a school de
pendent for its maintainence a
from taxation in a community
where the property is assessed
at one-third or less of its value,
and too, in such a community, r
more is expected from the school '
than when the means to operate ~
it comes from other sources. Our "
local school is economically ad
ministered, as well as efficiency a
will permit, not withstanding t

to run the school nine moaiths i

If any who feel there shouli C

views will be received with
pleasure, but unless they have e

position to otfer it will amount
This nii'h is certain, "we can
not eat our cake and keep it too."
If we are to enjoy the blessings
of civilization which education 1
brings, it is clear that we must t
devise the financial means for
it. regardless of those who are C
constantly objecting to any and '
anythmng tending towards pro
gress. and yet when progress
is forced upon them they are the
first to take advantage of it by
demanding additional pay for c
what they have. t
There are people who com- t
plain of taxation, whose proper- ~
ty is assessed at a ridiciously ~
low value, compared with the ~
price they demand for it, and
many of these people are op
posed to progress only, because
it brings with it more taxation,
notwithstanding it also brings
along better values and greater ~
demands for property. These
people want to eat their cake
and keep it too.
The attention of the town
authorities is directed to a large i
pile of rubbish on the lot belong- t
ing to Mrs. M. 0. Burgess, in
the rear of the Mecca Hotel,<
facing Church Street. This pile
is not only very unsightly, but
in our opinion, a breeder of mis
quitos, wnich convey malaria,
and the authorities should re
quire this stuff to be removed
at once. Every tin can in that
pile catches water and millions t
of misquitos are hatched there
from. We understand that some
of the members of the board of I
health have examined this rub- ~
bish and have given it as their
opinion that there is no decay- r
ing matter ir it, but with all due i
respect to them. we know better. t
There are rags, paper, cans. the
