A Stew High Nrhool Bulldlnc-What
the Board f Education Nhonld
and Will Do.
Since the proceedings of Tuesday
evening's meeting of the board of educa
tion became public, there has been a good
deal of speculation as to whether or not
a new high school building would be
built, as talked of, and if so, what it
would be like, how much it would cost,
and where it would be situated. The
board, of court, has not jet adopted any
plans, but public sentiment seems to
favor a twostory brick structure, about
seventy feet square with basement.
From $15,000 to $18,000 would be ade
quate to erect such a building, make It
substantial and modern in its construc
tion, aud conveniences.
The location will probably be on ttie
lot occupied by building No, 4. the gar
ret of which has been used fur years foi
high school purposes. There is roou.
enough for it there without discommod
ing the present building, and under such
circumstances Principal Hatch might re
main at the head of both schools, as he
is now.
The ancient structuro n ow used for
both high school anil lower ynvlu pupils
was built wny back in 1857, and no one of
the present xeneratifin knows whit it was
instructed for. It is a clumsy cumber
some, ill-dcvsied inslitulion a disgrace
and an eye sure to the city If it were
not as U'.'ly us it H a cyclone would have
6truck it lonu ago for it towers up above
all other earthly ob ject It is in the bunds
of the who l aiiMiorili though, aud
consequently must be put to the best use
The prospect of a new high school
buildiug will be hailed with delight by
patrons of our public school system, to
whom our present stiuc'.ure has been
a source of drcid and anxie'.y all these

Ueputy Sheriff Silvis, seeing the notice
of Supervisor Norton's horse in Wednes

animal over, and as a result he now owns
him. Norton did not let the horse go

$500 for him. "Sharp" has been looking
for an animal that could throw the dun

make it lively for any prestimptuus

Oplnloaa of Chlraso Papers on the
Passaic or the Amendment In
the Senate.
The Chicago Timet, in Bpeaking of the
senate action in adding the Hennepin
canal amendment to the river aud harbor
bill, says.
Perhaps the strongest testimony to the
merit of the project was afforded by the
course of the individuals who are popu
larly understood to represent the interests,
of the great railroad corporations in the
senate. Such men as Ingalls, Sherman,
Plumb and Edmunds were active in their
opposition, and spared no effort to defeat
the amendment. The Missouri senators
fought it because they are possessed of
the idea that the canal, if constructed,
will injure the interests of St. Louis.
This idea has taken deep lodgmeut in the
St Louis mind, but. as Senator Allison
showed yesterday, it is a fallacious one.
It arises chiefly from the habit which the
jealous Si- Louisans have formed of look
ing upon everything that is beneficial to
Chicago as necessirily detrimental to
their city, out this is a narrow and mis
taken view, and the opposition of St.
Louis to the canal project is short-sighted
and stupiJ. The benefits that would
flow from the construction and mainten
ance of the canal would not be confined
to any locality, but would be diffused
pretty equitably throughout the country
Chicago would share them, of course, but
so would St. Louis, and her fierce antag
onism to the scheme has no basis in rea
son or common sense.
The action of the senate of course af
fords no guarantee that the appropriation
will be finally carried. The fate of the
amendment in the house is somewhat
problematical, although the indications
point to favorable action bv that bodv.
The real danger point is at the white
bouse. There is decidedly a probability,
rendered stronger by recent actions of
the president, that he will veto the liver
and harbor bill. The measure contains so
many extravagant and utterly indefeasi
ble appropriations, aud is so heavily
laden with jobs of various degrees of in
iquity, and it is quite likely the president
will feel constrained to disapprove it,
notwithstanding its meritorious features.
Its passage over a veto is not to be an
ticipated. If an appropriation for the
Hennepin canal could be provided in a
separate measure, there is no reason to
doubt that it would receive the assent of
the executive. If the project is finally
killed, therefore, it will have to be at
tributed to the bad company in which it
is travel iu.
While the Inttr(kftin thus alludes to
the passage of the bill:
The Heunepin canal amendment to the
river aod harbor appropriation bill was
adopted in the senate Tuesday by a vote
of thirty-one to twenty-two. It is
significant that the states of New York,
Illinois. Michiiran, Minnesota, Iowa. Ne
braska and Wisconsin were solidly for
the aiiien dine lit. New York has by ex
periment demonstrated the value ot
writer transportation and the other stales
are in the group to be most benefited by
the construction of the proposed canal.
