The educational bill before the
state legislature is in some measure
the work of local men in educational
circles. 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
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
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
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
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.

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
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.

Epilepsy, Fits, St. Vitus

cured in so many instances with
Dr. Miles' Nervine that it is
reasonable to conclude that it is
almost sure to cure you. With
nervous diseases of a severe
type, persistent use has almost
invariably resulted in a complete
cure or lasting benefits, worth
many times the cost of the rem

get of its merits is to write to
those who have used it. Get a

WHO PAYS THE LICENSE ?
'The saloonkeeper doesn't pay it. He produces noth
ing. As far as he is concerned he has nothing to pay it
with. Who pays it then? Those who can least afford it
and those of whom it ought to be least expected. The
drunkard's family pays the saloon license. See the poor
woman, pale and wan and wretched, wearing her life out
over the washboard. What is she doing? She is paying
the license. See the little boy going along the street half
clad, with his feet protruding through9 the holes in his
shoes, and with degradation written on every line of his
face. What is he doing? He is paying the saloon license.
Equity Js a great word in the law, and in the Constitution
of the 'State. Is there any equity about that? We have
boards for the equalization of taxes. What is the board to
do in such a case as that? What can conscientious voters
do in the matter but VOTE DRY?"
