REDUcING THE EXP SES.
School Trustees Make a New Sohed i' ulel6of Salarl for Em:. ployi.. 'h. talingr Will Aggregat Some. thing Over Three Thoursand Dollars. lheeoos Will Open the Wll.t oenday in September-Eastimate Allowed ea the Broedwater dehoul. , The meetin of the boaird of eduestion last nilht was one of the most impor:nnt hold in some time. Those present wore Chairman Leaghornu and Treustee Walker, aOmer, Kleinsahmidt and Greenfield, the absentees befhg'Trustees Cox and Patehem. The most important question that was considered was bow to reduce the ranning expenses of the schools, without impairing their elelenoy and at the same time deal. Ina justly by the teachert. Tluteas Ge Or field offered the following resolution, ex plaining that .it was his idea ae to how a considerable saying could be made. Re ofered it, he said, for the consideration of the boa. d, and hoped that whatevereetaon wlde taken would be unanimous. The reso Iluion who is follows: Whereas, It is the almost unanimous de sire of tle taxpayers of Helena. school die trict No. 1, Lewis and Clarke county. Man thnm, at expressed in publio meetings, that the expense of running the schools be re duced to the lowest limit eonsietent with the best results, and without impairing their efficienoy; and whereas, the trustees of Helens district believe that in the past the sal ties paid employes were not exces sive, hut were -graded according to living expenses; and whereas, there has been and will be auch reduction in living expenses as will justifly a reduction in salaries for the ensuing year; therefore be it Resolved, That for the school year begin ning Sept. 4, 1898, the following salaries be paid: Superintendent of schools, $,4,00 per annums princi al high school, $1,800; hlRb school teachers, $90 per month; p im sry teachers, $85 per month; second grade teachers, 810 i or month; seventh grade teeohers, 580 per month, eighth grade teaeherse $85 per month; teachers in other grades than those specified to receive $75 per month. '1hat all ward principals re ceive $5 per month in addition to their -alaries as teachers. That the head janitor .reeoive $80 per month and other janitors $65 per month. That the teacher of music receive $100 per month, the teacher of writ ina $100 per month, the teacher of drawing $90 per month, the elerk of the board $25 pe month. Resolved, That the 'lerk'b+. in.r ;ted to notify all employes, in writing, of the above changes in salaries. Resolved, That all teachers who have been notified of their selection as each for the school year beginning Sept. 4, 1893, be retained. In explaluning the resolution, Mr. Green field said the agnregate saving in salaries was $8.755 for the school year, and yet he did not think in any case the salaries pro posed in the resoantion were below the liv ing point, or that they were less than paid in other northwestern cities of like popula tion. The greatest cut was made in the salary of the superintendent. He did this because while such cities as San Francisco, St. Louis, Portland, Ore,, Columbus, O., and Milwaukee, Wis., only paid $8,000 a year to their superintendente. he did not think Helena should pay so much. He fully recognized the good work Prof. Young had done an the Helena schools, And he believed that pentleman would realize the necessities of the case and accept the reduction in the same spirit in which it was made. The resolution reduced the salaries of the ma jority of the teachers only $5 a month and the janitors, except the head janitor, and ward principals, the same. He wanted to retain every teaeher and every janitor who had been engaged in the spring. The proposed reductions met g.eeral ap probation, except that in relation to thie superintendent and the head janitor. Supt. Young, who was present, said he was will ing to stand a reduction if necessary, but thought that $600 at one slice was too mnob. He said he was Willing to accept a reduction of $400. Trustee Gamer favored a $500 out and Trustee Kleinschmidt fa vored a $400 reduction. Finally it was pat to a vote, on motion of Trusteo Gamer, that the salary of the superintendent be $2.500 per annum. Mr. Kleinechmidt amended by making it $2,600, and the amendment carried, Klinseohmidt, Gamer and Walker voting for and G.eenfield against. By unanlmous consent the salary or the head janitor was made $90 n month, $10 mnore then proposed in the resolution. but a reduction of $10 in the salary now paid. The salary of Prof. Harah, teacher of writing, wra also by unanimous consent left at the figu e aid last year. '1 he other shlaries as fixed by the resolution were allowed to remain unanimously. The aggregate reduction as the scale finally passed is $8,5.3i per annum. Chairman Langhorne said he had no doubt the teachers would realize Jhe necessities of the case and would accept the reductions proposed, but as the teachers had been re-engnaed in the spring for the coming year at the old salaries, he felt it was but fair that the trustees and teachers :hould meet; that the situation should be explained to them, and that they be asked to consent to the reductions proposed. In conformity with this view the following resolution was passed, to take the place of the resolution proposed by Trustee Green feld, immediately after the preamble: Resolved, 'That the teachers and em plores of school district No. 1. Helena, be and are hereby requested to meet the tran tees at the high school. 1iaturday, Sept. 2, at three p. m.. to consider the following re vised schedule of salaries, necessitated by the stringenoy of the times, to be in effect bept. 4, 1893. The resolution was adopted unanimously, erd then the trustees disonrsed for some time how to reduce expenses in other diree tions. Chairman Langhorne rerorted that he bhad examined the school finances. and he had found that it would be t osslble to open the schuoel on tiles. On motion of Trustee Gre.nfeld it was decided teat the schools o; en Sept. 4, that the morning be devoted to assigning pua tie, and that there be no sohool in the afternoon, as it was labor day. The matter of the advisability of an ap peal in the high school case was referred to n special committee, of which Mr. Lang. borne is the chairman, to consult with the county attorney and with power to act. Ex-Gov. B. P. Carpenter presented a bill for services in the high school oaseof $1,000, which was referred to the finance commit tee. Handen & Carlson, contractors on the troadwater school, were allowed $4,165 as the first payment on that building. Iave 0 per cent on drr goods and fancyr Lood by buring at The bee Hive this week.

FOR THUE UNEMPLOYED. omre ISlgeetleus Ltaeknl to the Delptas In a Legltimnate Way of atners. To The Independent. Your suggestion, Tuesday mornleg, that the well-to-do can materially help the on. employed in this olty by employlng thein to make improvements to the homes of the former is an excelleat one. Allow me to make a further eufgestlton in the same line. OWila to a decline in the price of slilver and the eoaeequent cldsing of sliver mines there are preeent more unemployed miners in.Moatane then ever before. Their con ditlon, even now deplorable, will in three months become distressing, unless there is A decided ehange for the better. There are in the poeeeeion of the well-to-do in Hel ena and other Montane towns hundreds of promising geld-bearing prospects, whioh the owners have not eared to develop while wagee have been high. My suggestion is that the owners of Inch prospects seize the present opportunity and enter into con tracts with trustworthy miners, agreeing to furnish necessary ual plies, but leaving the balance of compensation to depend upon the resblts aceomplished. Many miners, owing to their conneotion with labor unions, will refuse to work for less then regablr wagds, but will gladly accept a contract that promises little more than a '"grb-stake," " In addition to prospects there are not a few developed mines that will not pay to -wok under ordinary conditions, but whieh when leased to competent minerwill aford iflongl wages to the leasers and fair returns to the owners. All snoh properties ought to he worked in times like these. It is well to keep up a hopeful spirit in hard times, and to speak eneourainIgly of the legislation congress II expected to en act; but he will do most to bring about the good times hoped for who gives labor to the Unemployed. No one who has any thing to do with employing miners can fail fo be impressed with the large and increas. log number who are looking for work. Congress may help them, but the possible, not to say probable, alternative is what they have to face. Every one of them put to work is one taken from the army of the unemployed. whieh the community most aupport, and added to the produiong class whloh supports the community. .If the suggestion above would be acted upon by the owners of prospects and mines which promise even a Irving to now idle men, the amount of unemployed labor in the state would. I believe, be materially decreased, end the suffering and destitution which, under existing conditions, are bound to come with the winter, would be greatly mitigated. F. N.
