H. Ackermat4 to je embodied In, the biennial, report jy Mr. Ackerman; '. ,. In reply to your request I bec to .'ubmlt the following special report f bi-hool conditions In. this, county: General Outjook'. The general outlook for bettej-Ing 'v frchool conditions, fcv this coitoty 13 more favorable than ever beforja.'.'', The patrons are demanding bqtiter ;i mil, fled teachers and longer terms cf school and are offering better wuenles. j The rural schoo'.s are paying rom f& to 75 and quite a number tK dis tricts tire; planning to have elight. md some nine months school this year. Special -Taxes. A few years ,aso only the . town schools provided any extra funds for the support of their schools, but last year 38 districts levied a spec ial tax of from 1 to 10 mlll3. Number of Districts. In 1M0 there were 42 districts In this county, while now (1910) wo have 73, an Increase of nearly 74 per cent. In 10 years. Supervision. With no office help, the clerical i,-ork more then doubled within, 10 years, and tho schools scattered ov- .r an aroa or auout . 4J0O square miles, a great cart of it roueh and and deep oncv;s, the worl: of super vision la very difficult. I believe tho superintendent's work ia, and should be, largely supervis 3ry and mostly confined to the rural Jch-Dols, whero as a rule, the Inexper ienced teachers' are working. The town schools are In charge jf capable and efficient principals .'.nd need very little of the superin tendent's time. Compulsory Education. Tho compulsory law 13 fr'rly effec tive, but I believe i: could be made r.iore so by having the sheriff made county truant officer.

Lafferty of Portland, pro gressive Republican candidate for the congressional nomination, made a court room full of friends- by his address here Saturday night, and Wallowa men- report an equally suc cessful meeting at that city In the afternoon. Jlr. Lafferty Is a young man, brainy and full of vigor, who has Ideas of his own and isn't, afraid to' tell them. And he knows how o tell th-sm, too. He made what is termed around town, the best politr ical speech heard here In y-aara; Mr. Lafferty bristles with, to mrgency. He is In. favo of a fed eral Income and inheritance tax, of larlff reduction on articles the Am Ji.tan manufacture of which is in he hands of a monopoly, like the Jtt-el Trust. He stands for the Oregon primary law, popular elec tion of United States senators, and a opposed to convention nomlna ions. t Ellis Asleo. He told In, graphic terms how Con-sressman- Ellia went asleep while he committee of which he i a mem ber ta-eked on a repealing clause o the reclamation, bond bill by which Oregon lost over $2,000,000 of .'eclamation funds that was the right ful share of this state. Then be cause of pique or dislike, of Ore gon's senators, Ellis nevr gave :hem any warning and the grab was railroaded through, the senate. "That money should have been speni on irrigation projects in Or son," said Mr. Lafferty, "some" of it right here in Wallowa county la) put ilng water on the hill land." If elected Mr. Lafferty will en deavor to get this money, back for Oregon, and get thl state her prop- sr share hereafter. State Cara of Forests. It was In his conservation.' policy ;hat Mr. Lafferty especially struck the popular chord. " First he Is in favor of restoring to homestead entry all agricultural lands now within the boundaries- of -he forest reserves. Next, he would have the forests placed In. trust In, care of the state, under strict provisions that would insure careful trusteeship. The state ,nen- to patrol the forests, and the proceeds of all sales of ripe tlm- )er and grazing feea to go Into the 3tat treasury, wh3.r0 It belongs-. Mr. Lafferty has a bill prepared to the above effect, w'ch he will troduce If he is elected. He Is .jnfl'Jent of' securing the co-opera-ion of the congressmen from all Jther states where there are nation- U forests, and encountering but ilt le opposition in the East, WILL ADVERTISE THE FAIR.
