Hioh School Communication "To be or no to be, that's the ques tion," for Sutter Creek nnd Jackson City to consider. We should not for selfish motives bar the possibility of a county high school. It is well enough to argue the advantages of the different places as to a location, but this should be done in a fair intelli gent and unprejuudiced way. We understand that Sutter Creek, Amadur lone, Plymouth, and Jackson each have sites, temporary and permanent to ofrer. We should consider the location that can do the greatest service to the greatest number, and according to our figuring that location is Jnckson city, from the fact that it has the largest number of pupils in the public school, and is the center of population. . From the fact that Jackson is the county seat and has the county build ings and if, as the Record states, the mines of Amador county should fail, the county seat as history proves in other places, is the most permanent of the county t jwna. We note an ex ception to the character of petition circulated in Pine Grove and Volcano by Sutter Creek appealing to the voters to declare tor Sutter Creek on the grounds that by so doing it would save the expense of another election. We claim that it was an unfair and prejudiced proceeding. If such decla ration on the part of the voters for Sutter Creek would save this expense why would not v similar declaration in Jackson's favor do the same. lone presents a more favorable offer than any, of which we have heard from Sutter Creeks lone is as accessible to most of the pupils of the county as Sutter Creek, and offers not only a site, but a build ing, and a good one. , We do not claim advantages in social standing, but we do claim all that Sutter can boast, and more too.

Address as above. SCHOOL APPORTIONMENT Jackson, Cat. Dec. 16th, 1910. To the Board of Trustees of Amador Conty : Ladies and Gentlemen :— I hereby report to the first apportionment for the school year 1910, 191L The County Auditor reports that there is $11129.11 available for apportionment; to this sum has been added $466.78, the balance remaining in the urvapportioned County fund, which gives a total of 11595.89. Of this amount 1 apportioned $11071.51, leaving a balance of 8524.38. The next apportionment ■will be of state money, and will be made in January. Drytown receives $200 extra for 8 census children. Oneida 1200 extra for 8 census children. Plymouth $250 extra for 10 census children. claim the center of population, and Jackson can serve the most people at least expense. If San Francisco could claim as much there would be no doubt about California receiving the I'minnm Exposition. If the geographical center counted, the capital of the United States should be in Kansas. The editor of the Record asks in re ply to last week's article, wherein the fact is cited that Jackson has the deepest gold mine in the world, if we intend to locate a high school down in the bowels of the earth. We answer no, that is why we want it in Jackßon, and not in Sutter Creek. That is a town built in a hole in the ground, we say to you, send your children from out the bowels of the earth, let them take inspiration from that old poem, "Excelsior," and climb Sutter hill to Jackson and to light. The editor of the Record no doubt means well, but one's mind becomes limited by the surroundings, he should come out of the hole in the ground, come to the city of Jackson, while opportunity is knocking at his door. Sometimes it pays to listen to the knocker. An Enthusiast.

Jackson, Dec. 22, 1910. YUP QUONG. John Fontenrose arrived in Jackson Wednesday evening, and will remain until after the holidays. W. H. GRCENHALGH, Hupt. of County Schools. SAMPO MURDER TRIAL FINISHED Conlinuod from Jape 1 his story, substantially the same u3 the other witnesses on the same side. He denied having struck the deceased with a rock, or having seen him in the roadway that night, or having had any trouble except what occurred in the Cavallero house or yard. i All the testimony was in Wednesday afternoon. The prosecution presented no rebuttal testimony, content to allow the alibi defense to stand as made out by the defendant's own witnesses. It was supported mainly by the two de fendants,Sampo andConti.who claimed that they played ten or twelve games of "mora' before the dancing com menced, which consumed considerable time, and would tend to show that de fendant was in the Cavallero house at the time the homicide is alleged to have been committed. The other wit nesses stated that three games only were played, occupying from twenty minutes to half an hour. The arguments consumed until Thurs day afternoon. After the instructions . of the court the jury retired for delib eration soon after two o'clock. Hour after hour passed, and it looked for a while that a disagreement would be the outcome. Once the jury filed into court and asked for the reading of the testimony of one of the main witnes ses, and instructions. Again retiring another long wait occurred. About nine o'clock the foreman reported that an agreement had been reached. The jury filed into the" jury box, and <■ handed in the verdict, which was read by the clerk, and was "We the jury find the defendant guilty of murdei in the second degree. ' ' It seems the only contention among thg jurymen was as to the grade of the crime, several holding out^for murder in the first degree, but these w*ere finally won over to the lesser offense. The verdict gives general satisfac tion, as being in accord with the facts in the case. The penalty is not less than ten years in the penitentiary, up to life imprisonment. The defendant's counsel handed in 127 instructions for the judge to sub mit to the jury. After examining this voluminous mass, the court gave 21 of the instructions asked for. Mrs. Clough Dead A message was received in Jackscn yesterday afternoon informing friends of the death of Mrs Sarah Jane Clough, at her home in San Francisco. De ceased died at 9 p. m. Wednesday, after a lingering illness from a com plication of disorders, incident to old age. She was a native of Pennsyl vania, aged 72 years. Funeral services will be held in San Francisco on Saturday afternoon, after which the remains will be for warded to Jackson. Services will also be held in the M. E.i, church in this city on Monday morning at 10 o'clock, and thereafter the interment will take place at Pine Grove by the body of her husband, who died many years ago. Mrs Jos. Pnelps, a.daughter of de ceased, was summoned hastily to the city when the life of her mother was despaired of, and went down on Wednesday, arriving in time to see her mother alive. Miss Hilda Clough is also a daughter, and was present at the final scene. Mrs Clough was born in New Al bany, Bradford county, Pa., December 28, 1838, and came to California with her parents in the spring of 1860, when the family settled in Nevada City. In 1867 she was married to John Herbert, and in 1867 she and her husband went to live in Sutter Creek.Amador county. Herbert died in 1869. The widow married Orson Clough January 28, 1872.
