Smallest Class of Applicants
Several Years Writing For
Teachers' Certificates.
The smallest class in many years
of applicants ror teachers' certificates,
is writing on the semi-annual examin
ations at the courthouse this week.
Forty applicants are writing for state
papers, 17 for county papers and the
work of 7 others will be sent In for
grading In Polk county, making
and actual total of only 61. The aver
age for years has ranged between 76
and 125.
In the whole list of 64, there are only
seven men taking the examinations,
four for county papers. From that
fact, the claim that mail teachers are
rapidly retiring from that field of
work, seems well sustained.
A number of the teachers from
remote districts are staying in the
city while the examinations continue,
but many residing in Monmouth and
Independence come over each morn
ing for their examination work and
return home on the evening motor.
The examinations for county pa
pers will close tonight and the appli
cants will be able to learn
the results of the grading some
time tomorrow. The state exam
inations will continue until Saturday
night. The grades on those papers
cannot be given so promptly as in the
case of the county examinations owing
to the fact that the papers must be
sent to the State Board.
Assessor C. S. Graves returned Wed
nesday from Salem, where be had
been summoned to appear with the
other assessors of the state before the
State Equalization Board for the pur
pose of giving them the information
necessary in its work regarding the
1909 state levy. Mr. Graves says that
he expects the state levy for Folk
county to be reduced somewhat by the
decisions of the board.
F. H. Pepper and Clark Groves
went to Salem, Tuesday afternoon, to
present a petition from the people of
Dallas to the State Legislature, ask
ing that under the local option law
the precinct be madetbe unit instead
of the county, thus giving cities the
power to regulate the sale of liquor
within their own limits Independent
of rural precincts which would be in
noway effected by the city govern
ment. A Kansas paper contains the follow
ing concerning a family reunion at
which Mrs. K. L. Coad, formerly of
Buell, was present: "On January
20, 1909, all the brothers and sisters of
J. A. Lotspeich met with htm and his
family at their home near Randall,
Kansas, for a reunion. Four brothers
and four sisters are still living, the
youngest of whom is 48 years of age
and the oldest 67. An interesting
feature of this reunion was the pres
ence of one sister, Mrs. K. L. Coad,
from Oregon, who had not met with
the family for more than twenty-five

Bill For Appropriation For Only One
Normal Re-referred To Ways and
Means Committee.
me Normal school battle was
opened in earnest in the House Wed
nesday, when the bill for an appro
priation for a single centrally located
school was brought up for considera
"Advocates of three normal schools
won the opening skirmish in the
House by a vote of 38 to 21 the bill
recommended by the committee on
ways and means was rejected. At the
same time the House re-referred the
bill totuat committee with Instructions
to make provision for the three
schools at Weston, Ashland and Mon
mouth. The bill came up as a special order
at 10 o clock in the morning, Jones,
Lincoln and Polk, immediately
moved the re-referrence of the bill,
with Instructions that provision be
made for state support of the three
schools as recommended by a majority
of the Board of Normal School Reg'
ents. Hawley, also of Polk, the borne
of the Monmouth school, supported
Jones by contending that the geog
raphical conditions of the state are
such as naturally to require at least
three normal school f.
Opponents of the Normal school
combination, however, gained one
slight advantage when, by a standing
vote of 32 to 18, they adopted a motion
instructing the ways and means com
mittee to report three separate bills
providing separate appropriations for
each of the three schools."
Confer On Water Rates.
The committee appointed by the city
council held a conference with Hon.
H. V. Gates, proprietor of the Dallas
waterworks, yesterday for the pur
pose, principally, of discussing a pro
posal for lowering the water rates.
Mr. Gates offers as soon as the
council shall pass ordinances
doing away with unsanitary con
ditions in the sewer districts, to place
meters on the sewer sevice, the
result of which will make a material
reduction in the cost of that service
to the water users. The proposition
of the purchasing of the water system
by the city, at a price to be set by a
board of arbitration, was rejected by
Mr. Gates. The time limit ou his
other offer to sell at a flat figure of
$10,000 has expired and it appears
improbable that he will offer the city
another opportunity to buy.
