A Scuiooa Tax.-The trustees of
this school district have issued a call
for a meeting to consider the question
of a local tax, in accordance with
an act passed by the Legislature. The
act has not been published, but its
p)rovisions are about as follows: A
school district shall be laid off four
miles square, have the court-house as a
centre, and having its sides respec
* ively parallel with the corporate
limits of the to wn. The county comn
missioners also erect this into a town
ship for' convenience in listing prop
erty. The law further provides that
* on the written request of three proper
ty-holders, the trustees each year, be
fore June, shall, after one week's
notico, call a meeting of those citizens
who return real or personal property
within the limits of the district. This
meeting shall elect a chairman and
secretary, and may levy a tax not ox
ceeding a mill and a half, for school
pur poses. If a levy be made, notice of
it must be given to the audhitor, who
shall assess it, and thme treasurer shall
The diff'erence between the new law
and the old local tax lawv'is that by the
former every voter had the right to
vote. But as no extra tax can be
levied on polls, the present law allows
only those affected by the tax to toto
on it. This bill attracted favorable at
tention In the Legislature, and a 1)111
having the same provisions was intro
duced to aply to all towns, but was
laid over till next session for want
of time. We hope there wlU be a full
turnont of all parties interested. The
levy of etich a tax aflbrds 'the best
mansa of 1nanrine a goodl snhool.
