Representative Whiteman 'gave notice in the House to-day ot an act to increase the terms of the county superintendents of schools from one to four years. When the act was passed two years ago an effort was made to give these gentlemen two year terms, but without avail. The pro jector of the original bill, the late Dr. Swithin Chandler, objecting at the time. Since the adoption of the bill and after two year's trial the unwisdom of the E resent law has been apparent. No one, owever competent, cm become qualified to properly understand the schools of the county in one year. The present officials have both been appointed by Governor Biggs and will probably be for another Messrs.

There will be a row between these two bodies which will consume some time. The members have kept up wit h their work fairly well. The cause of long sessions are the people themselves.
