SPECIAL SCHOOL MEETINU.
A Special Tax of Seven and One-Half
A special school meeting was hold in
Pope's hall Monday evening for the pur
pose of levying a tax for school purposes
for the ensuing year. The meeting was
presided over by Dr. J. W. Norris, chair
man of the board, who requested Mrs.
McCown, clerk, to read the call for the
meeting. Dr. Norris then read the fol
lowing estimate made by the board of
directors of the probable amount o(
money that would be needed to carry on
the public schools (or the year 1SD8, to
gether with such recommendations as
Oregon City, Feb., 7, 1898. To the
taxpayers of school district No. 02,
Clackamas county, Oregon.-
Ladies and Gentlemen:
We, your directors herewith 'submit
an estimate of the cost of maintaining
the schools in this district for the ensu
ing year, to wit :
Salaries of teachers SC710 SO
Janitors fiflO 00
Clerk 100 00
School supplies, stationery etc 250 00
Janitor's supplies 25 00
Fuel 180 00
Repairs lo furnaces 25 00
Desks a' 00
Blackboards 100 00
Building 100 00
Interest on bonds, 720 00
" " floating debt. 50 50
Water rent 43 00
Total '. .19000 00
The estimate is made on the supposi
tion that we can get along with the same
number of teachers the coming year as
the last. Should, however, the number of
pupils be increased it will be necessary
to employ an additional teacher, fit np a
room and purchase the necessary desks
and furniture tbns entailing considerable
extra expense. We hope, however, to
get through this year with the present
number of teachers.
We estimate our income from state and
county apportionment to be as follows:
As against $4,733.00 last year. This
is owing to tbe (act that the taxable
property in the county is less than last
year and tbe farther fact that our census
shows a less number of children of school
age in the district, being about one
thousand as against eleven hundred last
Assuming onr estimates to be correct,
it will require a tax levy of seven mills
to meet the actual necessary expenses
of conducting tbe schools for the next
year. A seven-mill levy will raise less
money than six mills did last year, owing
to tbe fact that tbe assessable property
in the district only amounts to $743,000
this year as against $886,000 last year, a
difference of $142,000.
In the above estimate we have placed
only tbe amount that we consider abso
lutely necessary to he met in the conduct
of the schools and we now take this oc
casion to call to your attention the desira
bility, we might also say the necessity, of
providing new closets at the Eastnam
school as those now there are not fit (or
children to use, not to mention thoir un
sanitary condition, which cannot be
remedied. We haye , investigated the
matter of new closets and find that new
ones similar to those now in use at the
Barclay building (which haye proved
very satisfactory in use) can be built for
about $500 We consider this a very
necessary and desirable thing to do and
recommend that you vote an additional
half-mill tax (or this purpose. We (eel
sure that if you will visit the school j
grounds and investigate for yourselves!
that you will agree with us that new
closets are in the interest of decency,
morality and health and not hesitate to'
provide us with the nececsary hinds to.

solution was adopted with only two dis
