expended in tenehers' ealuries. Ourin
the pant year the school Opulation of
the dirtiiet has iiicieaned from lU.'lto
11 HO. The district is in heller financial
condition than it has beeu in years. In
addition to contolidatinx the npr
Krades ol the school, the board, by reor
KHiiiziiiK its schedule of teachem' wages,
by which a slight advance in trages has
been granted all along Ihe line, has re
duced the expense of conducting the
schools of the city without impairing their
efficiency. Dr. . h. Carll succeeds Mr.
CaulloiJ aa chairman of the board of di
Ileport of Hoard of Director.
The following report, submitted
the board of directors, was adopted :
The k-IiooIb were opened for ihe fall
term on September 2.', 11)02, and there
waa a larie attendance" of"Tinpils from
the beginning ami, although we had pro
vided an additional teacher anil fitted up
a iijniii lor herpelf and pupila, we still
found that each teacher had as many
children to lie cared fur as could be Well
accoiniiiod.iteil, and indeed in gome of
the grades mure pupils applied than
could he provided J"r, ami this condition
continued uiilil well along in the epring,
when the attendance brgan to decrease.
We repoited hint year that we had
employed I'luf. II. A. Haves, of I lender
son, Kentucky, as euiierintendent, but
i-hoMly I elure school opened in the fall
be s-ii.t us a lutturof reninat on and re
iplesled to lie released (roin his contract.
'1 he hoHld alter couniilerat on of Ihe nint-
ter coi.i linletl that It was the hei-t thing I
to do ami i-oiiM-qileiitly Receptetl his re
Mgiutiuti. I'rof. Kilyar Faulk was then
elided uh Miper.nleiident and served
U in 11 g the year.
The board has had under coneidera
tion for koine tune the question of the
ahohiioti ef the eleventh grade, and after
giving IIih inu'.tcr careful attention we
ueciJed that it was for the best intercut
of the schools ami Ihe pupil to drop
that grade, and accoidlngly hereafter
there will he but ten trades m the course
ol study. In doing this we have not
weakei ed the ecu me of study in any re
spect, but on the Contrary it has been
Birengtfiened, as ajl the es-entinl parts
ol the eleventh grade will now be given
in the ninth and tenth grades, which for
merly had light work and can easily
take the additional studies and
thus finish the course one year sooner,
w hich is an importunt item to many if
not all of the pupils. 1
In cutting utf the eleventh grade we
saw an opportunity to lessen the ex
pense2 by not employing an expensive
siiieiintendent, but by giving the title
and the oversight of the schools to one
of the principals, we will accomplish the
same results at a much less cost. The
abolition of the eleventh grade also 11 1
l,ws us to mwke changes in the arrange
ment of the grades that will give us an
additional room at the Barclay building,
and will give all the grades, up to the
eighth, representation in each of the
buildings, which will accommodate the
children, of the district much better than
b fore. This change wi I also render it
unnecessary to make the addition to the
KiMhani building, which was author
ized at the special meeting in January
Rat, as n itff the extra room which we
w ill get ai the lUrclay building we will
be aide to ai-coiniiKiduie the children of
tha tfittict lor the next year at least.
We held our election of teachers last
month and (he old corps was re-elected
with the exception of I'rof. Faulk, .Mits
Smith, .Mrs. lilies and Miss Nelzer,
none of w hom upphetl (or le eiectiou.
New teachers were elected to till the va
cancies as follows: Miss ISoiing, Miss
tr eason, .Miss Williams, the principal
ship of the Ka.-llimii uchool being not yet
tilled. Miss Ad. lie Clark, w ho has rieen
principal of the Barclay school for sev
eral years past, was re elected principal
and city eupeiinteiident with a salary ol
fSi per nioiul). Miss Clark has by her
service with us bIiowd that she has the
uecessary educational qualifications as
well as the executive ability and tact
that go to make a first-class superintend
ent, and we are fully satisfied that the
schools, will lose nothing in efficiency
under her administration. . Mrs. God
frey waa elected assistant principal'of
the Barclay school with a salary of (50 per
month . Our salary list for teachers this
coming year will be 737.50 per month
as against $777.60 last year, a
saving of - $40 per month, after
giving several of the old teachers
small increase of pay. This we consider
we accomplish, with 00 loss of efficiency,
but rather a gain. The school buildings
re in (airly good condition and but little
repairs will be needed. Some of tbe
blackboards will need to be repaired and
a little outside work In the way of repair-1
ing and renewing sidewalks will proba
bly have to be done. We had tbe south 1
side of tbe East bam building painted
one coat last summer, and it will now
probably stand year or so longer with
out further attention. We bave been
notified by tbe city authorities to make
connection with tbe sewers from tbe
Eastham building, and as a new sewer
district has been established, that in
cludes the Barclay' building, we will
hive to make connection there. This
expense was not contemplated when we
made our estimate last January, but it
will bave to be met just the same. We
bave bad no estimate of the coat of
this work, but it will probably be from
six to eiglit hundred dollars. It is ex
pensive, but unavoidable and desirable,
as the sanitary conditions at the two
building are not as satisfactory as they
should be. The clerk has just completed
his enumxration of the school population
and finds it to be 110, an increase of
37 over last year. A portion of our bond
ed indebtedness, amounting to $))0,
'all due on tbe first of next month and
will bave to be refunded, and in connec
tion therewith action should be taken at
this meeting to authorize the directors
to do so.
IM)U WAR VETERA' PAY.
Veterans Enabled to I re Serrlce
'and Expedite Their Halms.
The auditor for the war department
ha approved the first claim for back pay
Hied by a veteran of the early Indian
wars of the Nort iwest, and directed that
Lewis Lawley, of The Dalles, who served
as a nrivate in the Second Washington
Territory Mounted Volunteers, lie Daid
tr-i for arvit-e rendered from March 17
to September 1, 1S.V). This amount will
be paid out of the first appropriation
made at the next session of congress.
Tbe Law ley case is one that was urged
for many months by Ex-Representative.
Moody, and the adjustment establishes
tbe precedent for the granting ol back
pay to all survivors of tbe early Indian
wars, who can prove service by rolls
that are now on fi e in the department.
The department finds that there are sev
eral rolls in Oregon, w hich were pre
pared by captains, as souvenirs and for
other purposes. Persons whose nanus
are on these rolls cannot be paid until
the original rolls are filea with the aud
itor in Washington.
The action on the Law ley case makes
the claimant qualified applicant for
pension. Lawley filed application for
pension some months auo, and his claim
was disallowed because he could not
show pay. Now that bis pay has been
authorized, and his services are recog
nized by tbe vovernment( iiU pension
claim will go through. This decision is
of great importance in that it estariles a
way by w hich Imlian war veterans can
not only recover back pay when they
failed to draw allowances heretofore, but
places them on a pensionable status.
A great manV veterans are unable to
prove satisfactory service and
that proof w not obtainable, record of
pny by the United States is necessarv.
Therefore the importance to many of ee
curitiK ba. k pay. Once this is ob'ainod,
practically the essential evidence, is at
hand. ' ' .
POPULAR 0RlH .It K AC H .
Excursion Steamer T. J. Potter (iocs
Into StiTlce 27.
Those who are planning their vacation
this year w ill be interested in knowing
that the popular excursion steamer, T.
J. Potter, queen ol river boats, goes into
service June 27, and that she will leave
Portland, during the season, every day
from Tuesday until Saturday inclusive.
To see the beauties of the picturesque
and mighty Columbia from the decks of
the Potter is a treat never to be forgot
ten. For speed and grace nothing in
riveror lake service in the entire West
equals this side-wheel beauty. Five
hours from Portland and one from Asto
ria, through the famous fishing waters
of the Columbia, past scores of salmon
(rape and nets and as many w hite-winged
fish boats, lands the passengers at II
waco, where close connection is made
for beach points with trains of the II
waco Railway & Navigation Company,
whose cars stand on the wharf awaiting
the steamer. The beach is twenty-seven
miles long, two hundred yards widest
low tide, and so hard that carriage
wheels scarcely leave a marK. It is an
ideal place for driving, riding, wheeling
or walking, and the surf bathing ib un
surpassable. The excellent hotels and
boarding houses provide good accommo
dations at prices ranging from one dol
lar ti three dollars per day.
The round-trip rate from Portland to
Astoria is $2 50; to Ocean Beach points,
f4.00, good until October 15th. Pn ijat
urdavs, during July and August, round
trip tickets are soul to beach points at
$2.50, goo ! fur return, leaving the beach
the following Sunday evening.
The Oregon Railway ifc Navigation Co.
has just issued a new summer
book, free for the asking, which tells all
about the delightful resorts of the Valley
of the Columbia River. This can be ob
tained from anv agent of tbe Oregon
Railroad & Navigation Co., or write A.

THIRTY hETES tiET D1PL0IAS.
Result or Eight Grade Examination (
Clackamas County. -
Thirty-seven of the eighty-one pupils
of the Clackamas county schools who
took the eighth grade examinations this
month were successful an'd will receive
diplomas. A class of thirty-one will
take the examination this n-ontli and
Superintendent Zinser says there will
this year be about 1-5 iiradnates from
tne grammar grades in this county.
Lst year the graduates numbered only
seventy. While the class this year is
considerably larger, Superintendent Zin-
i ser reports that it represents but two per
ent of the enrolled pupils of the schools.
This goes to show that the large majority
tf the pupils attending tchools are
obliged to abandon their classes for farm
work'before they bave completed the
grammar grades. The law recently
parsed by the legislature compelling
school attendance will not relieve the
ifuation any since it applies only to
school children unuer the age 01 10 vears.
"The consolidation of rural school dis
tricts," says County Superintendent
Zinser, "is the only plan by which the
percentage of the graduates from the
gramin tr grades of the public schools
can be increased. BY the consolidation
of districts, the school attendance is in
creased, the quality of teaching is im
proved and the length of the school term

examination in this county were as tol
