Any assistance tlio city of Pa
ducahi may give tho schools of
100Iadumb In a financial way will
be money well spent Now
Heres a matter on which wo all
seem to agree It is not a matter of
more sentiment cither but a eon Gtrrand
of common sonar economy
Jt makes little difference now of
course how tho floating debt of t l1eto
schools came about but It puts us t
to begin 1thln a Httlo moro sym
pathetic attitude toward tlio present
trustees when wo understand that
they had nothing to do with Incur
ring it that they are mon of the 1
very highest business quaBfloat mss
who consented to give their Umo at
the urgent request of distressed C ill
zees to the school problem nnd that
In addition to restoring harmony I
they actualy ma mi cod with theIr

tie existing debts during the year
Just ended Knowing the character
of men composing the board wo f eel 1
B3more like entrusting money retie n
and more like wtpJng clean tlio slate
and giving them a clianco to Improve
the schools at least to the full e X
tent of their Income part of which
now goes to paying Interest on the
floating debt
That interest account la what ch J
tegea our common sense The
li6schoo board Is an entity distinct
06Crom the city to be sure and a 5and
cent levy out of this general tax
levy Is apportioned to it by state law
so the city government nuturaM I y
0fteJs no drect responsibility for ta0who
HoveAcltoos However brushing all d I
hsthese artificial distinctions erected
by fiction of the law the same tax
payers who support the city govcrn
raent support the schools and that
yannual Interest on tho floating debt
mutt be met by them and ntiethw
the city does or dot not pay off the
fGOOO1 remaining for tho schools
tho JGOOO to pay eventuaty only I
If the money Is paid this year the to

That te the taxpayers point Dfas
view we take It Ho desires the
ne1leapcet and most effective admin

cheapest by stopping the interest
fprthw tti and made most effective
by saving tho Income of tho school
for the purpose for which it was In

When men of the character of
dthOse composing the school board
aro wimng to give their time and
nstaloots to the public that is the
onUmo when tho pubHc sliould be
most liberal toward the schools as
giured that the money will be prop

As a bit of satire
some wholesome truths and a clever
way for the state legislature to side

resolution of Senator Eaton declar c
g that there Is no demand for d
remedial legislation and reciting the m
fact that county boards of cquallza W

tho normal schools without provid 1
ing any means of raising tho rev iJ
nue accounts for much of tho bal t

statesmanship to create floating

and Injure the credit of tho state by I
ofeletaultlng In payments rather than
to Issuo bonds at a small rato or

debts promptly
ntIs it not fair besides that those

ISStates aro suposcd to bo perpetual I

quently It is good statesmanship to

manner as to match as nearly as

Naturally tho burden of the ox
