Letter From Judge Chedsey Gives His Views on High School Hebron, April 16, 1911. Editor New Era: On May first t|iero will be sub mills and I see no reason why it need ty a proposition to organize a county high school. I see no reason why any voter should hesitate tovote for the measure. A high school is a gen erally recognized necessity in the county, nothing short of a high schoc| education is sufficient to enable one to do good work in any line of in dustry or properly perform the ob ligations of citizenship, yet few can avail themselves of high school priv ileges unless they can be secured near home. The proposition is per fectly safe , taxation is limited to 4 mill and I see no reason why it need, exceed one mill. The room is alreadj secured rent free about the only expense will be the salary of a teacher and a little furniture. I do regard the enterprise merely .as an act of philanthropy or an ob ligation \\c owe our children, I be lieve it is good business policy. What we need to make the county prosperous is more families of the right kind but to induce them to come and stay with us we must pro vide for their intelectual and moral welfare, let us begin by establishing a county high school. H. C. CIIEDSEY.! Sparks from Hebron The question of establishing a high school will be decided at the school election held May Ist.

Whreeas, the State Geological Sur vey, in view of the fact that Colo rado has so large a proportion of non agricultural lands and yet is so rich in mineral resources, seems to merit a larger financial support in order to pursue the splendid work it has undertaken, and Whereas, these matters appear to affect all the counties and each of us individually Therefore be it resolved, that this Board -'most earnestly desires Jack son County’s representatives in the Legislature to use every effort to ward tjie adequate support of our educational and scientific institutions especially the University of Colora do andf. the State Geological Survey, and toft use ev?ry influence against educatifnal institutions. The fallowing resolution was adopt ed and copies sent to our various representatives in Washington, Den ver etc. Whereas It has come to the knowl edge of this Boarrd that the area of the proposed Estes National Park has for its western boundary the range line betwwen 77 and 78, and, Whereas, such western boundary would include a considerable area in Jacksod county, and Whereas, such area in Jackson county -would be of very little in terest or value for national park pur poses, but is of great present value and of greater prospective value to Jackson county: Ist Because of the large grazing and pasturage acreage within such such asea, Jackson county being up to the present wholly a cattle coun try and wholly dependent upon graz ing privileges; 2nd* fiecanße the area in question embraces the old Teller mining dis trict, a country which is well known to be heavily mineralized, and which now that transportation is becoming possible gives promise of a splendid development; 3rd Because of the timber values on such area which may easily be come available for development with this Board earnestly protests against the inclusion of the Jackson county area in the proposed Estes National Park, and respectfully suggest that the western boundary of said nation al park be set on the range line be tween 75 and 76. The following claims were allowed and warrants drawn for the same: Mr. and Mrs. Peterson of Walden were among the business visitors to this city this morning.—Laramie Rep ublican.
