On MoiiduV eSuiing n special stdiool
meeting was held luHpeB Hall, which
was not verv well attended, and it was
voted to levy a special lux of 7)ii mills
for school purposes.
The following report shows estimated

Oiikoon Crrv, Fob. 7, 1808.
To Ihe Tiixpnyei-8 of School District No.
02, Clackamas Cuiintv, Oregon :
Ladies and Gentlemen : We, your
hoard of directors, herewith submit an
est mute of Ihu cost of maintaining the
ecbool in the district for the ensuing
year, as follows :
Salaries of teucherfl .
Salaries of janitors
Salaries of clerks. . . .
School supplies, etc.

Total if!) 000 00
The above estimate is made an the
Sup position 1 1 ut L wo can get along w ith
Hie same number of teachers us last year,
should however, the number of tuelnrj
b.! increase 1 it will bo necessary t ) em
ploy an additional teacher, lit up a room
und piirchu.se the neces-ary desks aiii
furniture, thus entailing considerable
extra exp.uise. We hope however to get
lliroiigh this year with Ihe present mini
h ! of teachers.
We estlni ito our income from el ite
and county apportionment to be as fol
Tot ul ifdOOO
us against If 4, 732 lust year. This is owing
to Hie fact that the taxable properly iu
Ihe county in les.s than lust year. And
llie fuither fact that our census shows
a les.s number of children of school age
in the district, bjing about 10D0 us
against 1 100 lust year,
Assuming our estimate lo be correct il
will ivipiire a tax luvy of 7 mills to nioet
Ihe iicluully nece.-sary expanses of con
dueling t!io s.diools for the next year.
A 7 mill levy this year will raise less
money ih in (j m ills did lust year, owing
to the fuel Unit Ihe assessable properly in
the district only amounts to $743,00 )
as against $8Sj,000 last jnar, a dill't'rencc
