Rev. Kaufman at the E. church
last Sunday evening made a spirited plea
for a proper enforcement ot the prohibi

officers of the city and county to their
duty in the matter, and to the presumed
violation of the law by the druggists.
The friends of prohibition are deter
mined to see that a more thorough ob
servance of the law is enforced, and the
officers whose duty it is to aid in this
enforcement and tlie parties who are
violating it may find that they will be
called to account if lhey persist in their
present course.

Tbe School*.
The board of education held a meeting
Wednesday evening at which the ques
tion ot providing more school room was
the subject under consideration. It ap
pears that the school population of the
city is rapidly increasing, most of the de
partments being already over-crowded,
although hut two weeks of the fall term
has yet been held. Before and during
the winter term there is always a large
addition to the enrollment, and if this
occurs this year as it undoubtedly will, it
will be impossible to accomodate them
with the present facilities. A proposition
to erect an additional school building on
the present grounds, (and thus bring all
the departments together and make a
permanent improvement was discussed,
but owing to the present financial condi
tion of the city and school district, it was
decided to bridge over the difficulty this
year by renting another room and fitting S
it up for school purposes and employing
an additional teacher. While this will
afford a temporary relief, it will be well
tor the board to keep in view the
fact that 1he steady increase of the school
population in the citv will in the near
future necessitate some permanent and
substantial improvements for school ac
commodation. The board can figure on
this fact and make preparations to meet
the emergency when it arises, as it
necessarily will before a great while.
