The object of it Is of course to raise the standard of our schools. No part of our school system in this state is more dependent on the quali fications of the man than is the coun ty division under the county superin tendent. This bill to raise the stan dard of the man at the head of the county schools is good in many re spects and picks out the flaw under which our school system has labored for many years. Subjoined is an editorial which we reprint from a recent Issue of the In dianapolis News, which covers the sit uation thoroughly: The bill drawn by the Btate board of education and the County Super intendents' association providing for higher qualifications for county super intendents and for three years' exper ience in teaching school is before the legislature. The bill alary 'Lablishes a graduated system of salaries, based on the population of the counties. At present a common school license is the only qualification prescribed by law. . This is no guaranty that the county superintendent has any know ledge of high school subjects, yet he Is a supervisor of high schools as well as of elementary schools. The pres ent law gives him the duty of licens ing high school teachers without de manding proof that he has sufficient scholarship to grade their manu scripts. In Marion county, e, g., their are thirteen high schools outside In dianapolis, most of which are com . missioned or certified. 1 Outlining the course of study, selecting text-books, and supervising the teaching of these schools are in the hands of the coun ty superintendent. Surely he should be required to show in advance of tak ing the office that he has adequate knowledge and professional training to perform such duties. Two years ago the general assembly increased the requirements for teaching. The present legislature would take a for ward step in raising the standard for county superintendents. By the present law all county super intendents receive the same rate of pay $4.50 a day for each day they are actually employed. The superinten dent of Ohio county, with thirty teach ers, receives the same rate of com pensation as the superintendent of a county with 200 teachers. This rate may be adequate in the smaller coun ties. But in the larger counties, at least where practically all the time of the officer must be given to his official duties, it is hardly possible to engage the services of a fit man for such pay. At any rate, it is no more reasonable to pay: all county superin tendents, whatever their responsibilit ies, at the same rftte than.it would be to pay all principals of high schools In the state at the same rate. Either the state should fix salaries on a rea sonable graduated basis or empower the county authorities to fix the rate of pay. . : " FORUM OFTHE PEOPLE A Word'to the Editor: The voters and women of Richmond have been warned not to permit them selves ' to be stampeded into lending their support to driving out the law abiding, well regulated saloons and driving in law violating blind tigers, etc. v';. 7" Permit me to give you my experience In this line. As a brother editor I know you will accord me the courtesy of a few inches of space In your val uable paper. It is a matter of history and common knowledge over the state of Indiana that the saloons in Boone, Adams county, were not closed without a ter rific battle and fierce fight. After the "dry'" had won a permanent victory over the legalised saloons, blind tigers and joints flourished until February, 1907,. when the blind tiger law was enacted. As soon as that law was in force , we took steps to clean house, ind it did not take the county sheriff, nor a prosecuting attorney, nor a po liceman to do It. - I swore out the search warrant myself and had it served on a man who was a constable, ind who had himself been running a blind tiger for a long time, until the jourt finally gave him a $10O fine and i 30 day Jail sentence on two cases Uch at one clip. I instructed the 'Squire before whom I swore out the: search warrant to serve it on this mau because I was afraid he would inter fere with the raid and cause trouble, and so I thought the best way to get rid of him was to make him help. When the 'Squire read the paper to him there was just one of three things left for him to do. He had to take his choice from serving or resigning his office, or forcing impeachment pro ceedings. He weighed the matter for a long time and finally chose to serve. He appointed two of his friends as deputies-and , thought they - would go through the motions and make a sham search without finding anything. But I went with the fellows and compelled them to open every box and cupboard and cooler, made them break into the storage room against . their protests, and the men who had no more thought of making a real raid than of Jumping to the moon, helped to carry out one keg of whisky, thirty bottles of rum and brandy, two jugs of wine, twenty gallons and thirteen pints of hop cream made by the Marion brewing company, and 48I bottles of the Gross er brand Toledo beer. What can be done in Berne can be done elsewhere. That stock of wet goods was poured out into the street, and Berne has since then been a prac tically dry town, as dry as you can make them with wet towns surround ing you. If our present blind tiger law is not effective enough to reach and convict all illegal sellers of liquor, it will be made more effective as soon as its in efficiency has been sufficiently proved. The way to improve a poor law is to make much use of it. and constantly expose its weakness. That's the way the Nicholson remonstrance law was strengthened and made effective by the passage of the Moore amenhment. Complaints have been made in some places about officials who are slow to do their duty or absolutely refuse to do it. There is a remedy for this. Our county seat. Decatur, had such a mayor, and a little over a year ago he was impeached and put out of busi ness. He is now a traveling salesman for a liquor house. The people are the boss in this state and majority rule is the boast of this country. The government of a town or city or state is seldom better nor worse than the prevailing public sentiment of the respective commun ity. FRED ROHRER. Editor Berne Witness. Centerville, Ind., Jan! 19. flO RECOGNIZANCE PAPERS FOR HER Eaton Woman Preferred to Remain in Jail Than to Accept Parole. WAS CONFINED 2 MONTHS HOWEVER MRS. SCHILLING, CHARGED WITH CARRYING CON CEALED WEAPONS REFUSED TO PLACE NAME ON "ANY PAPERS" Eldorado, O., Jan. 27. The refusal of a prisoner to sign a recognizance bond for release from jail was an unusual Incident that occurred in the common pleas court at Eaton yesterday. It was a most unusual event. . Mrs. Lydia M. Shilling, confined in county jail under $200 bond on the charge of carrying concealed weapons, was the prisoner who refused to sign the bond. She has been in jail two months awaiting trial. Judge Fisher was requested by Pros ecutor H. R. Gilmore to release the wo man on her own recognizance and the court gave the order. No Bonds for Her. The necessary bond being prepared was presented to the prisoner for her signature. After reading it over care fully she threw it down saying "I'll not put my name to any paper," and started to leave the county clerk's of fice. Deputy Sheriff John Huffman de tained her. The bond was read and explained to her, but she remained obdurate. Mr. Huffman warned her to sign it or go back to jail. "I will stay in jail the rest of my life before I will sign any bond," she said as the officer locked her in. Mrs. Shilling is the party who cre ated a panic in a traction car some time since by suddenly displaying a gun and theatening to shoot up the car. After being taken before the pro bate court and examined by two local physicians who pronounced her sane, she was placed in jail. .. Henry W.
