LIVELY DEBATE Proposes to Change Present System of Providing Funds for Support of Public Schools in Idaho. It is anticipated that the llunt-Niel Hon-Monson .bill introduced in tho house of representatives, providing for n complete change in the present sys tem of providing funds for tho support of the schools, making a direct state tax, will cause a lively discussion be fere the present legislature. This is not the first time the change has been proposed. For the last several sessions similar hills have been introduced but were not passed. The real object of the bill, it is said, if; t « > provide for a fairer and more equitable distribution of school funds, so that all may be treated alike. It in claimed that under the present sys tem school districts fortunate in hav ing heavy assessed valuations, such as railroad mileage, raise a surplus for the support of their schools, in propor tion to their valuation, while other districts having no public utilities on which to assess, but with large school populations, are badly handicapped for want of funds. Thc new bill changes this by sub stituting the following system as out lined in its provisions: "The state board of equalization shall levy anually upon all the taxable, property within the state an amount which, when added to tho income de rived from the common school fund, will produce a fund sufficient to pro vide $20 per capita for all children of school age in the state. "The state board of education shall annually certify on or before the fourth Monday of August, to the state board of equalization, the school census of the state, showing the total number of children of school age, and the in come. from the state school fund fur the preceding 12 months, together with nn estimate of the income from said school fund for the ensuing 12 months." Four years ago the state board of education recommended the passage of a similar act, but it did not survive both houses. TOWNSHIP SURVEYS.

PLAN FINAL ACTION IN DRAINING 1000 ACRES LANDS NEAR PAYETTE Payette, Jan. 22. -At a meeting to be held here next Monday final action by j the settlers is to he taken in the mat ter of draining 1000 acres of valuable land adjoining Payette on the north and west. A district, has been organ - ized under the name of Drainage Dis- i trict No. 1 of Payette county. This dis trict connects with Crystal drainage \ district- comprising lf>00 acres. i It is believed the. settlers will vote' in favor of draining district No. 1. The land under this project is said to need! both surface and under surface drain ing. M. G. Riebeling of Payette, is the attorney for the petitioners. F. H. Lyon. Ira \V. Kenwood and John 11. Norris are the attorneys for the ob jectors. This Construction Placed Law if Districts Expect to Share in State and County Funds —Trustees Given Im plied Power. If school trustees are responsible for closing schools in their districts and fail to hold the minimum terms of nine and seven months they are not entitled to participate in either state or county funds, but if their schools are closed by order of the health authorities so they cannot hold the minimum terms then they may participate in both funds. An opinion to this effect was handed to | .Miss Ethel K. Redlicld, state superin- I tendent of public instruction by the at torney general's department late Tues day afternoon. The holding is In substance that the trustees of both common and inde pendent school districts have implied power to suspend school temporarily any time, subject only to the absolute requirement that not less than the min imum term of seven or nine months, as the case may be, he held during the I I On I ! Trustees of neither class of districts have any power t<* suspend school for such a length of time as would in cad* the minimum term for the year. Tin* minimum term ir; seven months in school districts having less than 75 pupils and nine months in districts having more than that number. On the other hand, the local health authorities have express power to close the schools at any time and for ar.y length of time. If the schools are dosed hy order of the health authorities, as distinguished from the district trustees, the school receives its share of both county and state funds, but, on the other hand, if the district trustees themselves keep the school closed to such an extent that the minimum term is not held, the dis trict is entitled to participate in neither the state nor county funds.

BRADEN. The »«'creation of associate member ships in the Boise Ad club to be open to invited merchants of the city, was determined upon at the club's meet ing Tuesday. These memberships on the part of merchants will be evi !dcnced bv large cards Issued by the j organization, to be conspicuously dis played in the. offices of such mer j chants.
