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.
