The finance committee of the board of directors of the district has prepared a re port which will be presented at the meet ing to b« held Monday evening, the essen tial portions of which are hern appended: The sources of revenue for maintaining th<» common schools of the district are three: First—The district receives from the state from time to time during the school year a sum of money baaed upon the dally school attendance, which In the past ha» averaged about 110 per child In attendance, and which In the coming year Is estimated will amount to from 114 to Jl6 per child In attendance. It Is exceedingly difficult to obtain the actual figures upon which to base this estimate. Second—The county commissioners levy each year for school purposes such an amount a» the school board Axes; pro vided, however, that this amount ao fixed can never In any one year exceed ten mills on the assessed valuation of the dis trict. Third—The school district may, when au thorised by the vote of the people of the district, borrow money and Issue bonds of the district therefor In any turn not ex ceeding 5 per centum of the taxable prop erty of the district; and provided, further, that the money so borrowed can only be used for paying the outstanding Indebted nee* of the district, or for the purchase of schoolhouse site or sites, or building one or more schoolhouses and providing the same with all the necessary furniture and apparatus, or for any and all of these purposes: and provided further, that If the amount of bonds to be Issued, together with any unredeemed, outstanding Indebt edness, exceeds lty per centum of the tax able property of the district, then for such bonds threo-flfths of the votes cast at an election Is necessary. The Preaeit I,AW. The present law authorises the school board during each school year, and with out H vote of the people, to expend for purchase of school sites and orectlon of buildings, the sum of *30,000. 80 this amount Is figured In as n permanent ex pense, It not being probable that In the city of Seattle for some time to come this nnnunl expense can be dispensed with. In addition to this amount there Is an other fixed charge upon the district, being the Interest upon $730,000 bonds heretofore Issued, and the annual Interest charged against which Is JiW.ooo. Keeping In mind these fixed charges of 180,000 for buildings and 140,000 for Interest, or $90,000 emh year. In Addition to the other expenses for running the schools, and there In left the second division of the report, via.: the expenditures for the first vesr: that Is.

THE SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, SUNDAY, MAY 6, 1900. INK IN ILL TNIRNL Its Rapid Growth in Seattle Pub lic School Sjßtem, EDUCATES THE H*ND AND EYS. Pasters Intellectual Life, and Gives the Pupil • Knowledge of the Csderlrlig Principles of Me chanical and Indnstrlal Arts— Hlarh School Students Instructed In Wood Turning and Forging. ma m PHASE of the Seattle school sys § ■ tem that has been making steady progress the last Ave or six years, W I without graining much notoriety ■e ■ In the newspapers, Is manual training. Few parents In Seattle realize the thoroughness with which this work Is carried on here, and the excellent results obtained. In the grammar grades the work Is elementary, consisting mainly In teaching the children to appreciate color values, harmony, light and shade. The course In drawing In the primary and grammar grades ia divided Into three divisions structure, embracing elements of form, elements of beauty and structural design; enrichment, embracing color, elements«of ornament and decorative deßlgn; and ap pearance, embracing perspective drawing, pictorial drawing and pictures. Some of the specimens of the children's handi craft show great skill In execution. When the pupil reaches the high school, the courae consists of mechanical draw ing and practical work In the carpenter and blacksmith shops. The course Is very popular. It Is divided Into two peri ods a week for three of the four years spent In the high school. ® ® ® PROF. B. W. JOHNSON, the present Instructor, has been with the school since 1594. and to him Is due much of the credit for the department's success. He Is assisted by his brother. Burtrang Johnson. Both wero educated In the best Eastern schools of manual training. In the shops there are eighty-live pupils and 325 In the mechanical drawing courses. When the new high school building is completed, with Its better facilities for work of all kind, Prof. Johnson expects his department to advance rapidly. The Bft >p work Is curried on In a build ing at the southwest corner of the school grounds. Part of the building was erect ed by the pupils themselves. The car penter shop Is equipped with a twelve horse power electric motor, eight double woodworking benches, with accommoda tions for sixteen, and twelve turning lathes. The first year's work Is given to carpentry, wood carving and wood turning In progressive lessons. A drawing of each exercise Is first made In the drawing room by the pupil In his shop book, from which he afterwards works. In the wood carving, small blocks of soft wood are used. The "students are first taught In simple line work, so that they may get accustomed to the use of the tools and their care. "The sense of form and pro portion la developed, the eye and hand trained to accuracy and the will and Judgment kept In constant use In courses of the first year." said Prof. Johnson to a Post-Intelligencer reporter. ® ® §> THR second year In the shop Is given to forging. This work Is entirely dif ferent from the first year's. The pupil must rely upon himself for his results. Hl# eye and hand must be constantly un der the control of hi* will and Judgment. A hastily delivered blow or a wrong turn r> suits In serious Injury to the piece. On this account the exerc-lse is first worked out In cold lead, in which the pupil h>n ttrae to reason the how and where of his efforts Each exercise is worked oat by the Instructor before the class. He explains the various steps, how to hold the tron, how to strike, and how to man i«'> the are. In the drawing n i rn the pupil makes & blue print of the exercise for us« In the shop SV.<ir the close of the school year. In both the woodworking and forging shops, the pupil :s given the opportunity to put what he has learned into some project of his own planning. The shops present an attractive scene during class hours. The hum of the machinery, tlie noise of the lathes and lummi ra Mend with the ring of the nnvii into that song of industry to which the i ivillxallon ot ttvj »or!d marches onward. The boys b< :.d over their work watching Its development with Increasing Interest In the woodworking shop are a number of girls who are as enthusiastic In the exercises as the male pupils. Ths drawing rooms are on the second floor of the high school building, the me chanical In charge of Prof. John:> n. (he free hand and design under the direction of Miss T. J. Viper, one of the most ef ficient teachers In the high school. ® ® ® THE mechanical drawing room is equip ped with thirty stationary stands, a case holding WO drawing boards, and a case In which are kept the instruments. Prof. Johnaon describe* mechanical or constructive drawing as the universal language of all the industrial arts, and the prime study of the manual training school. The freehand and design room is fitted with thirty stands, movable, anil with adjustable tops, for use in charcoal vrUb sixicUuen# ot Ui» Rupus' b«*i w«tk. and are a standing testimony to the In struction In these courses In speaking of the work of the manual training department, -ohnson says: "What is a manual training school, and what is its object? In the first place it Is not a trade school. The scope of any trade is too narrow for educational pur poses. Nor does It manufacture articles primarily for use or for sale; the prod ucts of the shop as a rule have no value except as exercises illustrating typical forms and methods. Manual training is as broad and as liberal as Intellectual training. "The whole aim of the shop is educa tional. Were its product manufactured for the market, the student would be on what he could do best at the expense of breadth and versatility. The manual training school fosters Intellectual life. Its sole object Is the finished boy. He Is the only article to be put on the mar ket. "Manual training does not mean simply the use of the hand, nor does It mean simply the training of the hand for the sake of the hand, nor for the productive skill which that training gives. It is a training of the hand for the purpose of securing at the same time, and primarily, the training of the mind, through the senses of touch and perception. When the hand and eye are trained to accurate observation and manipulation, the men tal faculties of attention, comparison, re flection and judgment are exercised and developed. "The constructive faculty, so strong In youth, and which manifests itself even in the youngest of children when the op portunity Is given, is allowed its proper development in manual training educa tion. The hammer Rnd chisel go hand in hand with the pen and book. The instruc tion in tool practice Is not allowed to diminish the amount of attention given to sketching and drawing designs. Here the principles of pictorial perspective are taught, sketches from objects and nature made. The sense of form and proportion, light and shade are developed by the use of plaster casts. Both rooms arc adorned Drawing Room of the SManual Training Department. the other studies. The Intellectual fac ulties lire developed not less than the physical. ® ® ® . KK ANT'AL training received lt» first /V\ impetus in this country from the Russian educational exhibit »t the Centennial in Philadelphia In 1876. The director of the Imperial technical school at Moscow was the first to evolve a sys tematic course of tool Instruction. "Manual training as now upplled to school work in the United States, began with the founding of the St. man ual training school in 1880. Since that time, particularly within the last four teen years. Its growth and spread has been very rapid, until today It has become a. facto'r of great importance in public school education In all parts of the coun try It is one outcome of the feeling of dissatisfaction with the older methods of education, and the effort to make pub lic education more practical. Manual training without teaching any particular trade, teaches the underlying principles of them all, bringing the boy or girl In close touch and sympathy with all me- I ehanlcal and Industrial arts." 1 KI.OMIIKKIt ST.4M.EY ANSWERS.
