VOLUME 7. , FRANKLINTON, LA., THURSDAY, JUNE 1,19109. NUMBER '. LEGISLATURE GETS BUY 1 Committee Named to Draw Primary Law Cattle Di)in ping Bill Assured. loth houses of the LI gil;dtnre began to grind in earnest TIhurs day. Numerous impvrtant cmn mittee hearings were held. As clear road for the statewide cat- p tie dipping bill aimed at the cattle tick appenred certain. Th'e SI Byrne bill carrying the s).0Uo,0U iti bond issue fuor New Orleans slid i u through the House with little up- h position. The vote was 10; to 8. Under a suspension of the rules fr it was carried to the Senate city! affairs committee immedtately. t Governor Pleasant's message, dealing chiefly with the financial sQ situation, was received and read in both houses. Reading of the in message was followed with close tr attention in both chambers but, V as it is rather complicated, must m of the members waited the oppur. th tunity of reading the printed t message. TI An increase in the state,s rove- e n-me by one of three miethods of increased taxation stands out as ,th the feature of the message. The P total state deficits figured at SI, .23.,512.91, which includes the n obligations of the penitentiary, sel conservation commission, general the fund and money borrowed for oc storm and other emergency pur- cal poses. col Abolition of the state board of Th appraisement and equalization pci and substitution of a state tax wa commission; substitution of a su[ superintendent for the conserva- vid tion commission, and of a general pec manager for the penitentiary boW board and recommendation of wit dual assessments, a different sul; basis for state and local assess ments being permitted, are the has other chief features. go` A caucus of Democratic inem- thre bers of the Legislature was or- intf ganized tonight in the House I tt chamber with ninty representa- dec tives and twenty-two senators per present. up Senator C. M. Cunningham was elected chairipan and com mittees were appointed on rules and to prepare the primary and registration laws. Senator J. E. ers Doussan, of Sti James. was nam- ass ed chairman of the primary elec- jec tion law committee.

The MStore State Superintendant's Views o n Selecting Parish Supt, T. I-1. Harris Strongly Ad vocates Appointment by e School Board. - In order that thle scol c)s of tihe t state nuI;iy nott et nli ixd upi with I p lti( , trite upt. 1larris e strongly urges thati the I'iiislh Ishn b )rd appmint the super L intendent 4f edlueation and not Sunder any circumstances to leave - his election to the popular vote. \V We quote from a recenet letter from Mr. llarri adldressed to Mr. F. 13. Bateman, pre-ident of the parish school board: 1 think it would be a ditinict lstep hackwai d to throw the sflc tion of the parish superintendent into a popular election. Tnhis is true Ino matter holw intelligent the voters are or how earnlest they may be in their etfor:s to secure the most competent official for i the office of superintendent. Teachers who may enter the race for this oflice will naturally ex pect to win, and in order to do so 1 they will make combiniatioll with political factions and puomises to voters that will prove a detri- s ment to the best interest of the schools. The result would be that n the parish superintendent would " occupy the same position politi cally that the shariff, the clerk of o court or the assessor, occupies. The schools should be kept out of 1, politics, and the most effective way to do this is to elect the et superintendent in the manner pro,. vided by law, viz., to permit the people to elect a small school a' board and then charge that board with the duty of selecting the superintendent. E 3My opinion is that your board has acted wisely, and should the 1( governing committee attempt to throw the selection of the super- SE intendent into a popular election, I think the school board should 6( decline to appoint any man who C permitted his name to be voted n upon in the popular election. 2. Yours sincerely, T. H. Harris. 5 Notice-To the property hold- se ers of Washington Parish, the assessment of all pr operty sub- or ject to taxation for 1916, has been C completed and will be on file in my office for correction or objec. bi tion for a perod of twenty days from date of this notice.
