Kllis, dentist, of South west City, will be at Tulsa, Nov. 14 to ID; Catoosa, Nov. I!) to 2.'!; Clarcmore, Nov. o to 27; Chelsea, Nov. 17 to Dec. 2; Vinita, Dec. 3 to 17. lielow is published a bill proposing a change in the primary school law. A discussion of its merits and demerits is invited. What the Cherokee peo pie want is inly or a hundred more schools opened up without additional expense to our treasury. This bill proposes the plan to do it. Our school fund is a common one. Every child Las an equal interest in it, but under our present system there are from one to two thousand childien growing up in ignorance, w ho do cot get the ben efit of a cent of their school money. This is unjust. Ilecause a child does not live near one of the one hundred established schools is no reason why its money should be taken aud given to another. There are many children iu our nation who have grown up by a public school, while otners, and a great many others, who were entitled to Hie same benefits, have never had auy. it is the duty of our government, if It can, to remedy this evil. This bill proposes a remedy. If there is ten dollars a year due every child, let him have it in schooling, if he ill go; il only five le! him have that. By al lowing the non-citizen children to go we can open up fifty or a hundred new schools, they paying Hie extra expense. Vtrv truly, J. W. Dcncas. AN ACT TO TUB PRIMARY SCHOOLS. Be it enacted by the Na- in relation Section 1. tional council, That Iroin and alter the present term of the primary schools there shall be due every citizen child, over six and under eighteen years of age, who attends one of the public schools, the sum of one dollar and twenty live cents per month, based upon a daily average, the name to be paid the teacher by warraot upon his or her sworn statement lo the correct ness of the report before any officer au thorized to administer an oath, which report must also be approved by a ma jority of tlie board of dnectors aod by the commissioner of education, Sec. 2.
