The peoplo of Salem are to bo con
gratulated on becoming tho center of
interest for so many projects, oven
though they be on paper, and have hot

It has also been reported that Mr.
Henry made ?60,000 by tho transfor of

Portland. This proves that, In skill

waluable trading stock.
Tho latest paper enterprise on foot
Is a double-track electric lino to Ore

trains to Portland. That will want a
franchise from this city, and so will

The people should seo to It that

PROGRESS IN SALEM SCHOOLS.
Whllo tho public won a substantial
victory at tho school election Monday
thoy will get very little fruit of that
victory, unless thoy book up their
votes with action.
Tho now school board will ho com
posed of Messrs Condit, Crolsnu and
Ieo, Republicans, and Messrs Ilyrd
and Fletcher, Demoorats. Aftor the
voto of tho peoplo thoro ought to bo
no division among thoao gontlomon
on the question of higher gindes.
Hut In Albany, whore tho people
voted to have a high school, the school
board has dofoato.l tholr action by not
piovldlng room for tho higher grades,
nnd so Albany lacks two years of hav
ing the full public school courso.
So If tho peoplo want to reap the
full fi nits of their victory for hlghor
grados they must tnko an lutorost In
tho mattor, nnd follow It up by de
manding that their expressed will bo
rospectol by tho directors.
Tho old board voted to throw out
all above tho ninth grade, abolish tho
East Salem principal, and went on
teeord ns opposed to progress. Thoy
took no stops looking to a now build
ing on Contor street.
If tho peoplo get any of theso
things they must pull for them, as
tho school board Is still imbued with
a conservative spirit, and that means
that Sulem do nothing, or do as little
Thoro la not a good reason why a
now building for tho chlldron of tho
Contral district shall not bo erected
at onco, this fall, and the unsightly,
unsanitary rolics on Center street dis
Tli ore Is an abundance of surplus
money to do that with tho taxos al
ready levied, and tho fallacy of having
school nionoy lying Idlo ns deposits In
some bank Is a llttlo shelf-worn, to
say tho least.
Wo havo only this to soy In conclu
sion, that tho peoplo who stand back
of tho movement for bettor public
schools will appreciate tho right spirit
manifested by any of thoso gontlomon
of tho board of education, and thoy
aro Hiilllclontly American and intelli
gent to condemn tho wrong attitude,
or any displays of opposition or Indifference

NO DEBT FOR SALEM.
Tho Eugene Uoglstor has this:
"This sort of a plea for higher edu
cation ought to win out. Tho Journal
Is right. Kugono is loading tho rost
of tho stuto on educational mattors,
niul tho growth of a city Is always
nugmontod by tho quality and extent
of Its educational facilities.
"Tho result of Monday's school
election should lmvo boon and no
doubt was, for advanced grades nnd
a hlghor school. Any other stop by
n city of Suloin's pretentions is llttlo
short of disastrous to hor futuro wel
fare." Tho difference Is, thnt Eugene Is
sued $25 000 bonds for a high school
building, and tho pooplo of Salem. will
got one without Increasing taxes or
going in dobt.
