to pursue strain the ever tenor of

Another year of unrest might be the
complete ruination of the school li

way and a competent man in his
place. We should emphatically put
down every movement that has a
tendency to menace either the teach
ers or the schools as a whole. After
the disturbance let us have peace.
Vote down Ament and everything
that pertains to him and be done

test asserts that "several hurt and
indignant citizens" called upon it
"to make known their sense of out
rase at the systematic attempt to
defeat the proposition to adopt the
free school law." Then it goes on
to say that the reason for the feel
ing expressed to it is due to tickets
having been distributed with the
word "for" on the proposition
marked out. Tns Argus does not
believe that any one will feel hurt or
indignant at the teachers when they
understand the matter, certainly not
sufficiently so to take-their troubles
to the Union. The facts are that the
teachers and their friends made a
thorough can 7ass of the city Satur
day, not with a view to
dictating to any one how
he or she should vote, but
their mission was one of personal ap
peal to supposed friends. They were
provided with tickets for Marshall
and Donaldson, the candidates who
are the avowed friends of the teach
ers' cause and who are pledged if
elected to relieve them of the yoke of
Amentism. -They realize that even
with their candidates elected, that
should the proposition of which
Ament's admirers are the champions
carry, there will still be an oppor
tunity to raise an issue as to the
election and its effect, and that in
stead of order being reestablished, an
other year of unrest and uncertainty
will follow. They are, therefore, as
urgently solicitous for the good of
the schools that the proposition be
defeated at this time as thev-ara that
