Pkases of the Question That Suggest
Need of Prompt Action.
It may be laid down as a general
proposition, more or less applicable to
every community, that the school ques­
tion does not occupy that high place ID
the public mind that it ought to. The
utter indifference with which many
parents, especially, and citizens general­
ly treat educational matters is little
short of criminal. While we are kept
awake nights by petty political problems
and are enthusiastic and diligent enough
in the performance of our social duties
we are oblivious to what is going on at
school—truly "we don't care whether
school keeps or not." It is only when
some special or selfish interest asserts
itself that a corporal's guard can be
"scared up" to attend a school meeting
and then through lack of knowledge of
the requirements of the occassion we act,
if at all, blindly upon the propositions
that are presented to us.
Any father or any mother, worthy of
the name, is proud of the progress made,
at school by the son or daughter. And
it is not parents only who are really in­
terested in the question of good schools.
An ample educational pystem is the
proudest boast af any community.
The fame of Duluth as a city of good
schools has attracted hundreds of fam­
ilies there and added thousands to her
population, thereby working in no small
degree towards her material develop­
ment. This is simply referred to as an
illustration that aside from, the educa­
tional the advantages to a community of
a good school system are important.
The few of our citizens who have giv­
en the matter any attention are con­
vinced that Grand Marais is away be­
hind the times in the matter of schools,
that the system is inadequate to meet
present needs. As was pointed out by
the Herald last week, our schools are
overcrowded and the teachers have more
work than they can properly attend to.
The time has com9 when the establish­
ment of a graded school here is called
for. And there are these who deem it
advisable in making improvements to at
least lay the foundation for a high
school, which will be needed in not many
years to come. These are questions to
which all citizens should give devoted
attention. Some day we will be called
upon for a solution and we want to be
prepared to act inteligently and for the
best interests of the whole. It is urged
that the only way by which all these re­
quirements can be met is the establish­
ment of an independent school district.
And again, as this district is at present
situated, the law iB an obstacle in the
way of that proposition. The law says
that an independent di^HdtPdlahnbt be
more than 6ix miles square except in the
case of consolidation of two or more
districts. As the Grand Marais district
already exoeeds the limited six miles
square we can establish an independent
district only by consolidation with some
other district. Here again a series of
questions present themselves. -So far
as this district is concerned is consolida­
tion advisable? Is it practicable? Can
the people of, neighboring districts be
convinced that the benefits promised
them will justify such a step? The
county commissioners have the powftr to
reorganize school districts, but only up­
on a petition signed by a majority of the
voters of each district to be affected.
To meet present pressing responsibili­
ties will impose a large additional bur­
den upon this district. And while the
advantages of propoeed improvements
will be available to all the people of the
county this district is cut off with little
more than half the resources possessed
by outlying districts. To add to our
resources there inust be a reorganization
or consolidation. Whether such a thing
can be done depends upon the spirit and
sense of fairness of the people of other
districts to be affected.
In case the establishment of an inde­
pendent district is deemed by the peo­
ple tp be unwise or impracticable
or for other reasons cannot
be accomplished there appears to be but
one other way by which a graded school
can be inaugurated. That is by a vote
of the people at the town election.
Upon a petition signed by at least ten
voters presented to the town clefk not
less than thirty days before .,the annual
town election the proposition to estab­
lish graded schools, the question of pro­
viding means for the maintenance of the
same and,
the election of a board of five
directors will be submitted to the voters
at the polls. If this latter plan is to
be adopted there is no time to be lost.
It is up to you, good citizen, to deoide
what is best to do, and then to act
There will be a meeting at the school
house in the village next Tuesday even­
ing at 7:30 o'clock to discuss ways and
means to secure necesSsry improvements
in the schools of the district. All inter­
ested are urged to be present and give
their views.

Taxpayers Called Upon by the Treas­
urer to Walk up and Settle.
County Treasurer Jackson has sent
the usual qotice this week to all con­
cerned that personal taxeB are now due,
that they must be paid before March 1st
to avoid the ten per cent penalty and
that if not paid before April 1st they
will be placed in the hands of the sheriff
for collection. The receipts of these
notices have caused a heap of discussion
of the question of taxation and raised a
general cry of reform, Nine out of ten
think they are getting the worst of it
and it would oe bard to find the tdnth
man who is ready to- acknowledge being
the favored one. It's the same old
story. Men are made to think hardest
and give earnest attention to public
questions of any sort by touching their
pocketbooks. But the disturbance will
blow over in a day or two,-the mad ones
will cool off, assessors' ears will cease to
burn and the question of taxation will
be laid away for another year.
In Cook county there are something
like 150 personal property taxpayers.
Of these there jare just forty-five who
pay over $5.00 personal taxes. As a
matter Of special interest just at this
time we append hereto the names of
these together with the amount paid by
