VOTERS LEW 17
Financial conditions over the coun
ry at large, and especially the state
of affairs which confronts tho local
money market, are to be blamed for
tho defeat of the gymnasium propo
sition at the school election, Tuesday
evening. Even the proposal to levy
a 17 mill tax, for the running expenses
of the school caused much discussion
and was only passed after the school
board' made it clear that it would be
impossible to get along witli less.
That the voters did not think it ex
pedient to take any steps which would
necessitate uny unnecessary expense
at the present time is shown by tho
1787 to '15 vote against building a
physical and manual training build
ing. Among those who spoke against
this proposition were some who were
the strongest supporters of the gym
nasium movement two years ago and
these men justified tneir stand on the
grounds that the money market was
in bad shape. This year brought for
ward only one speaker who advocated
the "wash tub" and tlio "wood pile"
as a means of exercise for c chil
dren, tho desirability of a gymnas
ium being questioned by only a fow.
In opening tlio meeting Clerk J.
W. Alast pointed out that, while a 20
mill tax levy would he desirable for
the conduct of the schools during the
coming year, it would bo possible to
conduct the business of tho District
on a 17 mill levy plus $15,000 from
the Stnto and County Apportionment,
uncollected taxes and cash on hand.A
17 mill tax on the assessed valuation
of the poperty in the District nets
about $17,500, which brings tho assets
up to about $32,500, which will hard
ly cover the estimated outlay for the
coming year. The Clerk, however,
thought that this money would be
sufficient, because tho District would
not bo pressed to redeem some of the
outstanding warrants which arc now
due, or will fall duo this year. Tlio
17 mill levy was passed by a vote of
101 for and 48 against, a few writing
in 15 and 1G mills on the ballot.

nasium proposition ns having a good

OLD SCHOOL RUILDING AND
REMODEL IT FOR CITY PUR
POSES. Since tlio school meeting Tuesday
night the proposition of selling the
aid school house to tho city, and re
modeling it for a city hall, bus again
loen udvocatod by s number of cit
zens. This proposition has been
calked of before and there have been
some who have supported it and others
,vho have opposed it. There are nr
;uments on both sides. It is gencr
illy understood thnt tho present city
lull is not adequate for the business,
tud it is pointed out that to build a
low one would cost more than would
c justifiable at present, and that the
school building could bo made avull
dilo much cheaper and be an excell
;nt and adequate city hall for many
ears to come. Then on the other
,innd it is stated that the location is
lot desirable for a city hall as it is
oo hard to get to it at present, there
cing no streets graded to it, and when
chey aro gruded it is stated that the
jroporty will be too much up in the
dr, as the streets will necessarily
lave to bo cut down.
