' Editor Eeflector: I notice that In a circular letter to the school boards ' of this county, (he county superln ' tend "Insists" that the Wage of in experienced teachera are .too high .(using capital letters) and suggests v the following schedule- $60 for teachers who come highly;, recom : mended from the county superintend ent "and " school ' board of previous year; J60 for teachers 'without psr : -ticular "faults,"; 135 and factor beginners, except persons of "very unusual Qualities." To the credit of the county, be It said that Jm ' year there were no $35 salaries and only three $40 ones. This revision of salaries' downward Idea comes at the tlma of the graduation of the first class in the Normal training course .of the high schools of the f. state, which State Superintendent ; Fair Cihld regards as the biggest step in bis administration toward furnishing the rural schools with better trained : teachers. According to this, the people who have taken a four year high school course with special twitt ing for teaching the subjects in the country school curriculum, and have passed the state examination in such courses, are confronted with the proposition of "working" for; less wages than the people heretofore have received whose preparation con; . slsted of four weeks institute work. This Is certainly a great encourage- : fn a ennntrv' teacher to get an r education! " Unless " Superintendent, , A,.mui., inrlrla the graduates of I thla course in the list of those with "very unusual qualities" ' they, to- aether with a good many other capa- ' Wfj and desirable young : teachers; must come in the $35.and $4.0 claw This slap at Normal training in the blKh schools can haTdly be jusuneo . m j. 1 hv .fiinerlence. for this Is the first class to graduate from this course. And It It ! inappropriate in general u ' ninllarlr - tnannrourlate here H s peculiarly tuni'v'uF"'."' " - -i i for while the percentage of failures over the state as a whole in the state examination was within, fraotlon of 20 per cent, in the local high school It was less than 8 per cent; the ex perienced' and successful teachers over the country should certainly re ceive at least as high aalariea as in the past and be made to feel that their success is worth dollars and eenta to the dlstrlct;"but unless the idea Is to drive the pick of the new ' teachera to other counties to staytp discourage special training for. rural teaching, and to rank the ' county with the backward onea In. educa tional affairs, the doctrine of lower salaries seems to me a very doubtful one. . It Is to be hoped that the boards of the county -will consult tbelr sense of fairness before they ' adopt the $35 schedule." -. . ' FRANK B. TYLER, i " Principal A. H. 8. 'QI-X0.

' : The new antl discrimination fire Insurance measure which was passed br the state legislature during the session of 190y, and which provtdss for the legu'atlon and control or ni atcs ct riimlum and the supposedly preventing of discrimination has caused many persons to differ in op inion as to whether It Is a beneficial and Juet law. . ' " The principal clauses of the -ure are as follows: Section 3, "W&n the superintendent of Insurance shall determine that any rate made by an insurance! company In this state Is excessive or unreasonably high, or that said rate la not adequate to tne safety or soundness of the company granting the same, he la authorized to direct said company to publish and file a higher or lower rate, whicn shall be commensurate . with the 'character of the risk, but in every case the rate shall be reaeonable. Rwtinn T. "That no fire Insur ance company shall directly or In directly by any special tarlfr, rebate, drawback or other device, charge, de mand, collect or receive from any. person or persons a greater or less Isurance of our property located In this state than It charges, jOemanas,' collects or receives fromany other person or persons for llke tasurance or risks of like kmd and hazard un der similar circumstances and con ditions in the state; and any fire In surance company violating any oi tns provisions, of this law shall be deem ed guilty of unjust discrimination, Which is hereby declared to be un- , One of the principal . arguments. which those in favor or tne law au- vannfl Is that It effects everybody both large and small businesses, rich and poor individuals alike and that IB this WSV It glVBS the POOf i the same righto and advantages as it does the rich. That Is, a man eon- trolling say iiuu.uuu oi muru Tjollcles Is compelled to pay the same premium as he who has but 1200. on first thougnt wis arguareui. py... to be a good one and one that In itself would make, the law of some valu? and consideration oui u..- In more closely. It Will be found that a although there ia no favor shown the different persons insured u to favor the insurers themselves and give them a still greater opportunity The law provides, or putting It more plainly, it permits the differ ent companies- to get together' and agree upon rates agreeable and hence beneficial to themselves (for it must be admitted that no company is go ing to sacrifice Its own Interest for that of the people.) These rates are placed In the hands of C. F. Eldridge, a private individual of Topeka, who compiles and furnishes the schedules to the companies throughout the state.-'" "- .-"" . , Having decided upon and drawn up these rates It mskes It Impossible for any company to transact busi ness at "any other rates either lower 6? higher than those complied. ; It can be easily teen -that this system causes a dangerous and uncontroll able combination and thereby does . ..mnet.,,on .nfl by ellm hetween tbe different com- .. , th, ,MXsnnce 0f i Kansas In the hands and under tbe . ..j ... control of the few. " ' v : ' Before this new law wag passed if Insurance companies did get togeth er and agree upon rates the courts declared It a combination and conse quently they were punished.. Now If It was against the public good for then to combine without this meas ure to back them, it assuredly Is still the evirthat H has been, only the measure is there to protect them and mnaeouentlr It passes as a benefit )At tbe present time the federal gov ernment is doing all In 1U power to break np such combinations as tbe Standard Oil company. Now - thla large corporation does Its business In practically the same way as the In surance companies of Kansas. The federal government knows that this system Is working from Instead of toward the Interests of the people and they can see the ' evils which eventually result from It if such a system Is permitted to continue. Tbe Standard Oil company waa brought to trial oa this same charge aad tbe rullny or 829,000,000 against them plainly shows how the well thinking oeonle retard such conditions. Tbe express companies, railroads, sugar trusts, beef trusts etc., etc., ire op erated along this same lllne and suits are now pending against a num ber of these trusts on comblnatioa charges.

Is' that on the surface it gives the state commissioner of In surance control over the rates. But thla la not exactly true, for before he can raise or lower a rate he must give the company at ' least thirty days' notice of bis intentions and at that the company has tbe privilege of presenting and arguing their side. Should they convince bim that their rate la right, he will permit them to hold It, In which case .the commis sioner has taken the privilege rom the people, of deciding what the rates should be and hence It can be seen that this la favoring helew and leading toward class legislation, which all will admit is a very 'danger ous condition. '. "Those In favor of the measure ad vance the argument that the total Insurance rates Is less under the new law than previously. r .A close ana lvSla will show that although this may be true on the aggregate It ia also a fact that some towns are now comnelled to pay higher rates than prevlonsly, which goes to prove that, the insurance companies are collects Ing at least aa much In premiums as they did before the law existed. Heretofore tbe companies had to bid for insurance nollcles and In so doing the); offered special Inducements.but tbe new law pronioua any lowenm of the1 rate wiiatever, and conse quently the insurers gain just that much on their rates for the Insurance drawn up will be as great regardless of the rate charged. Nowr , After the schedule has been onca fixed the Insurers are unable to change It even though they so de sired as Is evidenced in Section 10 of the law which reads as follows: That " anv fire Insurance company or any director" or officer thereof, or any agent or person acting for or em ployed by such company, who alone or with any other corporation, com pany, or person, shall wilfully do or cause to be done, or shall wilfully suffer or permit to be done any act, matter or thine ddSe in thla act pro hibited or declared to be unlawful, or who shall wilfully omit or fall to do any act, matter or thing in thla act rennlred to be done, or ahall cause or wilfully auffer or permit any act, matter or thing so directed by tbl act to be done, not to be done or ahall be guilty of any Infraction, of this act, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and ahall npon con viction thereof he punished by a fine not to exceed flOO for each offense; provided, that if the offense for which any person shall be convicted, as aforesaid shall be an nnlawful discrimination, auch person shall be punished by a fine not exceeding $100, for each offense; provided, that if the offense for which any of fense any person shall be convicted, aa aforesaid ahall be aa nnlawful dis crimination, such person shsll be fwenlshefl by a fine not to exceed $100, or by Imprisonment in tns county Jail for a term not exceeding ninety days, or by both such fins snd imprisonment" - , . - ' . There are many other arguments which mlaht be advanced showing the Inconsistency of tbe measure and providing It to be mlschevious In terference with private right or eon anof don't eome' aad see'TS ens will Both tract but the following brief sum mary of Its fallings seems to me a sufficient proof Of its " unjust ' dis crimination agalnat the people! That, the measure tenda to do awav with competition and in doing away with competition it establishes combinations. That it allows companies to make their own rate which naturally would be drawn to their own advan-. tage. ''.''.: r That, that which is practically the same as the large combinations In other states and. which Is continually being met with foreign opposition, Is licensed In tbe state of Kansas by law. ' v That It practically stands for class legislation. In that It permits the companies and the commissioner. In place of the people, and the compa nies to decide on the rates of insur ance charged. . . That It enables the Insurance com pany to collect the same amount of premium as heretofore without bav ins: to comnete as do other business es ,w" ! beneficial to the Insurer only, and not to the people.
