THE AMADOR LEDGER: JACKSON, CALIFORNIA, FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 1906.
Electric Plant Dismantled,
The electric piaut built some ten or
twelve years ago by 13. E. Letaug, to
supply :ight and power in Jackson is
being dismantled and torn down.
The power house was located on
Jackson creek about a mile below
town, with a pole line running to the
Jackson brewery. It was intended to
run by water power from the natural
flow iv the creek, under a pressure of
fifty feet. It was inadequate to
supply the requisite power for the ice
plant, and has been in disuse for a
number of years. Trespassers and
mischievous boys have interfered
with and damaged the machiuery.
Some person fired a shot into some of
the delicate mechanism. The owner
therefore concluded to take it all
donu. Geo. Barker took the machin
ery down last week, and this week
the wire was removed from the poles.
The poles are left, not being worth
List of Grammar School Graduates.
The examination of applicants for
graduation of grammar school pupils
was completed last week. Examina
tions were held in each township in
the county, and almost every school
district bad one or more candidates

81 examined. Jackson came to the
front with a class of 20, one-fourth
ot the total in the county. The most
noteworthy fact is that every one
passed the examination, the average
percentage ot credits being 90, out of
a possible 100. In some districts over
50 per cent of the applicants failed.
The pupils receiving the highest
number of credits in the county was

A Big Turn-out at Fullen's Grove
in Commemoration of Italian Inde
The annual picnic of the Italian
Benevolent Society, which was first
announced to take place on the 3d
instant, but on account of the un
favorable weather that day, was post
poned for two weeks, or until the
17th — came off last Sunday, according
to revised schedule. The day proved
an ideal one for such an event. The
rain of a few days before had laid the
dust, and the sun came out bright
and strong on the day selected,—
exactly the thing for business as well
as pleasure. The picinc was well
attended. Perhaps the crowd was
not as large as on some former oc
casions; but withal from every stand
point it was very satisfactory.
The society marched out to the
grounds from Sutter Cieek about 8
o'clock, accompained by the Amador
City band, which furnished music
for the entire day. The literary
exeroises were held on the large plat
form. C. P. Vioini was orator of the
day in the English language, and P.
Peccario delivered the oration in
In the afternoon the amusements
furnished consisted of dancing on the
large platform, 100 x 78 feet— which
was kept going from the quitting of
the literary exercises until 2 o'clock
in the morning. In addition to this
pastime there was a base ball game
for a prize of 975 between a pinked
nine from Jackson and a team from
Lockford, San Joaquin county. Jack
sou proved victorious with the follow

Iv the evening the crowd that at
teuded the dance was immense— far
exceeding any previous year. The
platform had been enlarged, so that
several hundred could be accommod
ated on the floor. About 11 o'clock
tbe proceedings were brought to a
abrupt standstill by tbe failure of
tbe electric lights. It was thought
for a time that this mishap would
terminate the affair. But the dancers
wero not to be dispersed for such a
trifle. An electrician, Jones from
Sutter Creek, was hunted up, and
utter balf an hour's pause, succeeded
in getting lights on the subject.
Pleasure was renewed and kept up
till 2 o'clock.
The tiuauical outcome is not exactly
kuow. The receipts were large. At
the same time, tbe expenses were
unusually heavy. They lost heavily
on the ice cream made for the first
announcement. It was left on their
bands, and most of it was given away.
Chen they had to hire two men to
keep watch over tbe articles taken to
the grounds tor two weeks This cost
$150. The 75 gallons of ice cream
made for the final date was sold out
early in the evening. They might
have sold halt as much more were it
to be had. It is believed the receipts
will balance the expenses.
Saturday evening, June 16, the
barn of V. S. (Jarbarini, located at
South Jackson, was totally destroyed
by tire, with all its contents. The
tire started shortly before six o'clock.
How it started is not shrouded in the
least mystery. Some of the neighbors
children had been in the habit ot
playing around the barn, and at the
time referred, resorted to playing
with matches in close proximity to
the hay stored in the barn. In this
way the fire got a start, and was
beyond control as soon as it was dis
covered. The dwelling of J. tiar
barini just across the road from
the barn was in danger at one time,
but by dint of hard work, was saved.
Hay to the amount of VZ tons was
stored in the baru, also a new buggy,
valued at 9150. Everything was dcs
troyed. A horse belonging to M.
Plasse was also in the barn. A neigh
bor at the critical moment untied
the animal, and led him out to safety.
The lods is estimated at 9500; with
not a dollar of insurance. The barn
was a very old one. it was "built
over 30 thirty years ago, and in early
times was used by J. Belluomini on
bis trips with freight teams between
Jackson and Sacramento.

A number of patrons of angling
have repaired to Tabeau reservoir,
armed with permits from tbe Stand
ard Electric Company, to fish tor
black bass in that sheet of water.
They all expected fine sport with
these gamey denizens of this artificial
lake. All were doomed to disappoint
ment. For some reason not thor
oughly understood, the fish refused
to bite. Either the lake is not well
stocked, or the fish are too small, or
some other cause. At any rate the
total catch up to tbe early part of
this week, was one lonely fish — and
that a very small one. The fishing
ground for Jackson and vicinity is a
long way from being developed. It is
said that it takes many years to stock
a body of water the size ot this
reservoir with black bass. Perhaps
tbe cleaning out of tbe reservoir some
months ago bad a good deal to do
with tbe lack of sport in tbe fishing
line at this time.

For a High School Course.
A interesting feature in connection
with the examination of applicants
for graduation from the grammar
grade, held last week, was a question
inserted in the papers, to ascertain
the feeling of the pupils in regard to
attending a high school. The ques
tion was put in this way : "Is it your
present intention to attend a high
school?" The scholars were scattered
through all tbe school districts in
the county and with the majority a
high school course meant absence
from home for a more or less pro
tracted period. Out of 81 pupils ex
amined, 70 answered in the affirma
tive. This all one-sided resolve
sufficiently attests the deep-seated
desire on the part of graduates from
the common schools to attain a
higher standard of education than
that afforded by grammar grade. It
is safe to say that not one-third ot
those who thus answered will pass
through the higher school course.
And probably not 50 per cent ot
those who attain their wishes in
this directiun would be correspond
ingly benefitted by such tuition. All
the same, the expression of the disire
itself is significant. The idea has
taken root in the youthful mind, that
the high school is essential in round
ing out their education, and they are
in favor of getting all the benefits
going. Assuming that one-fourth of
the graduates will attend high school,
that implies that tbe majority will
seek such training beyond tbe limits
of the county, because of the lack of
opportunity to attend such a school
along the populous oenter— the
mineral belt. And with an average ot
17 of such pupils per year, it is worth
while considering whether we have
not 1 cached that point where it is
incumbent in justice to tbe popular
demand of tbe rising generation to
establish a county high school at
some central point where a majority
at least of these seekers after know
ledge could be accommodated within
a reasonable distanoe from their own
