MATTER OF FAIRNESS
What is Involved in the Pending
School Election in Rock
DISTRIBUTE TEE REPBESEKTATIOH
And Likewise the Responsibility
for the Control of the
The Argvs, In the coarse of a half
column article on The Argus com
ui it tee's school ticket, says: The
principles at stake do not involve per
sonalities or malice." We should
hope not, indeed, whatever these
principles are. 11 the way, what are
these principles, anyhow? The Argus
mentions none except "fair represen
tation and businejs management,"
that it is a "representative ticket,"
and "stands for all parts of the city,"
in the face of the fact that the Seventh
ward, which constitutes one-fifth of
the whole territory, has no represen
tative upon it! Unioo.
The above paragraph might bo sur
prising but for the fact that it comes
from the Union, that there is a school
election pending and that the Union
is as usual on the unpopular side. It
was the hope of The Aicgus tbat the
flection might pass without contro
versy or feeling, but it seems that ac
cording to an unfailing custom the
morning sheet has gotten the wrong
bteer, and is bound to cay comet hiDg.
As fir an Tiik Argus is concerned
it has no interest in lb schoo1 elec
tion beyond that of fiir p'a, the
Uoion's inuendo to the contrary not
withstanding. I has taken kindlr to
the ticket that was first in the field
because it represents pub;5c sent'
inent and i representative and fair,
it has entertained no prejudice to
ward the self-annnunced ticket of tbe
'ins," as tho Union calls it. It
has no personal feelings in the matter.
And it would pass the Union's para
graph over without further comment,
but the fact that it feels that some
thing more tban casual reference is
due the morning paper's obicrvatious
when it Lrst asks what are the
principles at stake in tbe present
election, and then adds that "The
Argus mentions none except fair rep
rebentation and business manage
ment." Tiik Argus is forced to ad
mit that it is unablo to discover
stronger principles on which to
appeal tJ the public. Fair repre
sentation and business principles in
volved in a ticket a represen
tative ticket indeed, that stands for
all parts of the city. ' What
more does the Union want, except to be
contrary, as it always is at school elec
tion times? It Is bat the exhibition of
tbe saino trait that it has gr at Hied on
numerous occasions with whie
the mentis ot public - schools are
familiar. It is by nature opposed to
being in accord with popular opinion.
in school matters, particularly. Tbe
suggestion that it makes about the
Seventh ward raicht just as well be
answered by asking how about the
First ward on tho Bobbins ticket?
Hut it is nit in tbe wards scpirately
that tho public generally is interest
ed, but tbe public is and ought to be
opposed to the centralization of the
members and tbe control of tho boaid
in one ward, a is the caso now What
tho poople want is a jus', distribution
of the membership. The election of
the four members who aro standing
for reelection would mean a continua
ion of three out of the live from tho
Fifth ward, with one from tho cast end
and ono from down town, leaving tho
central ward without representation.
while the success of the citizens' ticket
would insure two members from tho
west end, one from the Fourth ward.
one from tho tilth ward ana one
from tho east end. Can any fair
minded taxpayer regardless of where
he resides object to such a distribu
tion as this? Is not in truth tho
ticket composed of Messrs. Denk
mann. Stewart. Hull and Suidel
one that stands for fair representation
and business principle.
Ulitribolt th Responsibility.
It is not to be construed as an' evi
denco of personal feelings on the part
of The A kg us to say that it is opposed
to Mr. Bobbins1 methods of naming
his own associates on tbe board and
of seeking to down those who may
differ with him. buch a practico
places entirely too much of tho peo
ple's interests in. the hands of one
man regardless of how worthy his
motives or ambition.
Let all sections of tho city and all
interests, pclitical and otherwiso, be
represented on the school board.
