REMORSE WEIGHS HEAVILY
Like Ancient Mariner Man Grieve
for Shooting Sea Gull.
No heavier did remorse sit upon the
Ancient Mariner, with the slain alba
tross around his neck, than upon John
Kelleher. resident on a scow in South
Portland, who pleaded guilty yester
day in Justice Court to a charge of
killing a seagull. The defendant's
excuse was that he thought the bird
was a goose.
"I plead guilty, your honor, and if I
live 1000 years I never shall be guilty
again. I was in my house when a
neighbor called to me that a flock of
geese was overhead, and I ran out and
shot into them and hit oire." The plea,
procured him a suspended sentence.
During the prevalent stormy weather,
gulls have flocked inland in great num
bers and not In a long while have so
many of them been seen here.

SCHOOL SURVEY BEGINS
ATTORNEY - GENERAL KUIES
VOTERS MAY INVESTIGATE.
Decision Holds -That $750-0 Appro
priated Is Valid Board of Ed
ucutlon Offers Co-operation.
At a special meeting of the Board of
Education last Tuesday, an opinion
of Attorney-General Crawford was
read, holding valid the appropriation
of $7500 by a resolution passed at the
annual meeting of 250 taxpayers, De
cember 27, to conduct a survey of the
school system of Portland- At that
meeting a committee of five was cre
ated whose duty it was to obtain a
complete survey of the entire educa
tional system in all its branches in the
Portland School District. Experts were
to be employed and the whole cost
of the investigation was not to exceed
the amount appropriated.
W. B. Ayer introduced the resolution
so directing the Board. Kicnara w.
Montague, chairman; J. Goldsmith, L. A.
Lewis, J. A. Madsen and Mrs. Millie R.
Trumbull constituted the committee.
George A. Brodie questioned the util
ity of expending $7500, believing the
recommendations would not be of any
value. Rev. C. E. Cline said that he
thought the investigation was a re
flection on members of the Board.
The Board placed the matter before
the Attorney-General, who gave me
Subdivision 9 of section 4052 provider

Subdivision 3 of said section provides that
the Board shall auait an claims aHaiiiot

of said section provides mat
All demands, whether by contract or
Mhopoian TMiist be aDDroved by the School
District Board when in session, before an

to do so by a vote of the Board at a reg-
And then it further provides it shall be
the duty of the Board to examine au con
tnM for the emDloyment of teachers and
the construction of schooihouses, or for any
other purpose, and to see that stipulations
have Deen compiiea wiui Dwuro
i r.avTnnnt of mosev thereon.
In the light of these provisions of the
school law. I am of the opinion that the
voters of a school district cannot uiuvrAo
v.. of any money raised for school
purposes except in pursuance of the fore
going provisions. All muueya lliuat. f -
out under the supervision of the Board of
Directors and all claims or demands against
the district must be audited by the Board.
The resolution adopted at the annual school
meeting can. however, be considered by the
Board as advisory, and would probably au
thoise th Board to act In accordance with
said resolutions. I am of the opinion the
Board can adopt the same resolution prac
tically appointing the same committee to
secure the desired information, and author
ize them to create an expenditure, if nec
essary, for that purpose not to exceed JioOO.
Of course this is upon the theory that the
information Is for the benefit of the schools
of the district and Is necessary In order
for the Board to obtain an Intelligent and
economical administration of the school
affairs of the district, which, as I under
stand, comprises the whole of the City of
Portland. The general authority and power
vested In the Board carries with it. In my
opinion, authority to secure any necessary
information before taking action In regard
to building schooihouses. improving grounds,
furnishings, etc.. and becomes a part of the
It might be said that the Board could
authorize a part of the money to be ad
vanced If necessary, but all expense in
curred In securing the Information should
be presented to the Board, duly audited by
it and directed to be paid, and the clerk
authorized to draw warrants on the treas
urer for the amount so audited. However,
this expenditure must not conflict with the
provisions of Section 4040 of Lord's Oregon
laws which provides: "At least 85 percent
of the amount received from the county
school tax and the irreducible school fund,
shall be applied on the teachers' salaries."
etc If there are funds on hand, outside
of "the 85 per cent, with which to secure
this information. I am satisfied the Board
can act In harmony with the resolution,
as above pointed out, and have the survey
of the school system of the district made
In accordance therewith.
After hearing the opinion the Board
instructed Clerk Thomas to communi
cate to Chairman Richard W. Montague,
of the committee of five taxpayers, that
the Board would co-operate with the
committee; that in view of Mr. Craw
ford's opinion the Board thought it
satisfactory to have the committee
nominate those whom they contemplate
employing and Buggest their com
pensation for the action of the Board;
and after services had been recom
mended to O. K. the bills and pass them

regular way. The Board also suggest

tague who had previously sent in a
