Several weeks ugo we gave our
reasons for believing that the people

columns of the Post to explain the
merits of his bill. Tho reason we
have not published the same is bo
causo, he has not sent any explana
tion. It is beginning to look as
though the senator could not see
any advautago in his bill for tho peo
ple of Snyder couuty.

District school libraries are prac
tically worthless unless they are un
der intelligent supervision. Now
York began forty years ago spending
money on such collections of books
and after thirty years hud spent
nearly $2,000,000. A careful investi
gation showed that practically no
result had been produced. Books
had been bought by driblets, lost,
loaned and stolen, and the money
was about wasted. Unless the bill
introduced by Mr. Keen, in the low
er chamber at Harrisburg, and per
mitted School Directors to spend
not to exceed 2 per cent, of the sum
raised for schools on school district
libraries, is provided with suitable
safeguards for the care, custody and
and use of the books and for regular
reports, under penalty, 1 3 the Super
intendent of Education, twenty
years from now a great sum will have
been spent and there will be nothing
to show for it.
