GRADED SCHOOL DISTRICT
ELECTION HAS BEEN ORDERED
To Comprise The Present Consolidated Earlington-Hccla
DATE OF ELECTION FIXED
FOR SATURDAY, SEPT. 14
Petition Signed by Twenty Leading
Business and Professional Men
EVERY REASON TO BELIEVE THE
OUTCOME WILL BE SUCCESSFUL
Ou Monday County Judge
Bradley took favorable action on
a petition of twenty of Earling
ton's loading business men nod
citizens, asking that a"h election
be ordered for the establishment
in and surrounding Earlington of
a graded school district. This
petition had also, as required by
lav, the written endorsement of
Paul M. Moore, trustee, und
Prof. A. .). Fox, county school
superintendent. The county
judge 'grar ted the petition fcnd
entered an order fixing the date
for holding the election on Sat
urday, September, 14th 1912, at
which time a board of five trus
tees will also be voted for and
the authorization for the levj
und collection of taxes necessary
for support aud maintenance
of the school will be given.
The signatures on the petition
are as follows:
Geo. C. Atkinson
Dan M. Evans
Paul P. Price
D. P. Banks
W. E. Rash
E. L. Wibo
0. W. Webb
P. B. Arnold
Geo. SV. Bates
H. D, Cowaud
Jno. M. CanBler
C. B. Johnson
Li. (J. Wiley
J. ID. Evans
W. R. Coyle
W. L. Phillips
R. N. Clark
asked that the
election be called to establish the
graded school district, elect a
board of trustees and authorize
the levy and collection of not
more than 50 cents on each $100
of assessed valuation of property,
and poll tax of not more than
$1.50 on each male white citizeu
of legal age. The order of the
Oourt appears in full in these
The purpose will be to carry
out the plan that has been under
consideration for the post sever
al years by the local trustee and
the owners of the school proper
ty, to establish this graded school
district, and put Earlingtou ou
the same footiug as Madisonville,
Dawson Springs and Hanson.
The readers of the Bee well un
derstand that Earlington has had
for years and oxcelient graded
oud high school, and they also
kpow that the school haB for
many years beeu supported by
private funds and that but for
this private Bupport we would
have had only a six-months
school each year instead pf the
splendid nine months school our
children have enjoyed. They al
bo know that the Earlington pub
public has never paid a school
tax for local purposes and that
the school tax we have been pay
ing for the past few years under
the new law has gone, not into
any local treasury but into the
county treasury for the beuefit
of the schools of Hopkins county
generally. They also know that
the peeple of Earhugton have
been the beneficiaries for many
years of the free use of splendid
school property, which was built
and furnished wholly out of pri
vate funds aud let free of charge
to the Earlington public for ben
efit of our school children. In
other words the people of the
graded school district now pro
posed to be established have been
tax free so far as thi school is
concerned but have nevertheless
benefited for many yearB.from a
free nine months school taught
by the best obtainable teaching
force and in the best building
and equipment to be found any
where in this section of thecoun,
There is every reason to be
lieve, from expressions that have
been heard from .many citizens
during the past year,' that the
people of Eurlington will carry
this school election through to a
successful conclusion on Sept.
14th. Many proffers of assist
ance and cooperation have been
made to those who officially rep
resent the school interest in
Earlingtou and interest in the
welfare, of our school seems to be
general and sincere. Certainly
there is no question of greater
import than that of the welfare
and improvement of our schools
and the best possible education
for our children.

spoken of will not only shorten the
distance, but will cut out twenty
five of those hills, the road now in
use which is a very old one, was
made by the pioneer Bottlers, and
the route taken was because of the
thickness of the timber, and more
accessiblo at that time.
