VOTE FOR THE BOND ISSUE.
As will be seen by a notice published
elswhere in this issue, the trustees of Mont
pelier independent school district have
called a special election for Tuesday, Feb.
23, at which the qualified electors will be
asked to authorize the trustees to issue
bonds in the sum of $21,000. The trustees
request that the electors grant them this
authority for two reasons.
First, for the purpose of refunding the
tstanding bonds of former districts Nos.
10 and 15, which comprised the territory
the independent district.

These bonds should have been'refunded at
the time the two districts were consolidated.
These bonds are drawing a considerable
than which new
higher rate of interest
bonds can be sold for and by refunding them
the district will be able to save several
hundred dollars a year in interest,
purely a business proposition and no tax
payer should vote against it.
Second, the trustees ask for an addition
al bond issue of $11,000 for the' purpose of
completing and equipping the magnificent
high school building. Two years ago the
trustees were authorized to issue bonds in
the sum of $18,000, which was the limit that
could be issued at that time
were taken by the state land board at 4f
per cent interest. With the money the
trustees purchased a site and have erected
thereon a school building that is a credit to
the community. When they began to figure
on the cost of a building the trustees found
that after purchasing the site, for which
they paid $750, the balance of the bond
would not enable them to erect a build

ing that would fulfill the future require
ments of the district. Rather than to go
ahead with a building which could nave
been erected for if 17.250, the trustees de
eided to erect one which, when entirely
completed, would meet the requirements
for many years to eorue, and to trust to the
loyalty of the citizens of Montpelier to
grant them power to issue more bonds when
needed with which tocompletethe building.
The building has been paid for as far
as completed, which includes the four low
er rooms and one room in the basement.
But with these additional rooms, thsschools
are now crowded, and more room must be
provided for next year. The only way this
can be done is by completing the high
school building and to do this the trustees
ask for this bond issue. Without it, the
high school, which is now' well organized
and has an enrollment of 36, will be greatly

of Montpelier wish to see this branch ol «
^ ur public schools closed. The work being *
done in the trades, as well sis the high _
school, has been warmly commended with- «
in the past year by Miss Chamberlain, state *
superintendent of public instruction, and «
Prof. W. R. Sanders, superintendent of the JJ
Pocatello schools, than whom there are no *
better judges of school work in the state. *

The bond issue now asked for by the
trustees will not add any burdens to the
taxpayers at this time as the bonds will not
be pa 3 *able until 20 years hence,
qualified elector should be sufficiently inter

go to the city hall on the 23rd of this month
and vote to grant the trustees authority to

A bill passed the hou^e last week which

of every tax-payer in a county,
with the amount at which his property is *
assessed, the list to be published at least ^
3Q days prior to the meeting of the board
of equalization in July. The object of the n
bill is to remedy the present evil of un- *
equal valuations.

unless the owner makes a kick, and we have
never yet heard of a tax payer asking the
board to raise his valuation,
believed that the proposed law would be a
means of causing every piece of taxable
property in a county to be placed on the
tax roll.
It is also
The publication of the list would
add several hundred dollars in cost to the
counties each year, but it is believed this
would be offset by the increase in valuation
that would follow and by the additional
property that would be listed, One thing
is certain, it would make the assessors got
a move on them as they would have to com
plete their assessments and prepare t lie list
for publication by the first week in'June.
The county commissioners will meet on
February for the purpose of considering
the applications for liquor licenses, and to
discuss the improvement of the l oads with
the supervisors of the various road districts
in the county. Every supervisor should
attend that meeting and acquaint himself
with the plans which the commissioners
have in view for bettering the county roads.
A uniform system of road work throughout
the county will place our highways in much
better condition than they have been in the
past.
The Rigby 8tar calls attention to tl e
fact that eight citizens from Pocatello are
drawing from the national and state gov
ernments the snug sum of $27,300 a year in
salaries. Yes, and there are about 40 more
applicants in Pocatello scrambling for
sitions under the present state administra
tion.
