JOE BRIDGES' PET flEASURE.
He Is Interviewed by a Salem Post
A Post reporter had the pleasure of a
short interview with Hon. J. T. Bridges,
representative-elect from Douglas county,
and ascertained I113 pet measure. This
bill will ask the state to accept the Drain
Normal school and maintain its support.
The citizens of this Southern Oregon
town have completed the handsome
school building, together with dormi
tories for hoys and girls, with all of tho
facilities needed for conducting a first
class normal school.
The school was built and started in
18S5 nnd has succeeded in building up a
splendid patronage. It is located on five
and one-half acres of beautifully situated
grounds, four blocks from the pestoffice
in Drain. The school eir-ploys a faculty
of 12 able and excellent teachers and tho
course of study includes 'all branches
taught in the normal schools of this state.
Douglas county has never asked the state
for any appropriation, and her citizens
have paid their just portion of the state
tixes. Mr. Bridges now claims that it is
nothing more than justice to them and
the state tributary to that pointthat tho
state of Oregon accept this school and
loo!; after its maiutainance.
He has closely figured the cost to tho
state and says that it will only require an
appropriation of J5.000 from the etato to
maintain the school. It will enable the
school to be maintained belter than at
present, figuring in the amount that the
state would receive from tuitions. The
school so far has been maintained by tho
liberality of the citizens of .Drain. They
have went down in their own pockets to
bring up the school to the present stan
dard. The iostitution has now an at
tendance of over 400 students, who come
from d.fferent sections of Oregon and
several are in attendance from the state
of Washington. There is not a bit of ex
pense against the school, so there is no
heavy debt to unload on the state. Mr.
Bridges comes to the legislature only
asking that the state accept the building
aud ground as a present from the citi
zens of Drain and that the state maintain
the school henceforth.
Mr. Bridges frjnkly says that if no ap
propriations were made to other normal
schools throughout the state that thev
would not think of asking for an appro
priation for their schnci. But he says by
the state donating $20,000 to the Mon
mouth normal school, and $24,000, to
the Western normal school, and liberal
appropriations to other institutions in the
state it enables those favored schools to
plac6 th2 tuition so low thai it is impossi
ble for the Drain school to be maintained
at the same tuition without assistance
from the state If the schools above
mentioned, who receive liberal dona
tions from the state of Oregon, were
compelled to exist without this big help
they could not condnct their schools at
the same costs to the patrons, and it
would place the Drain school upon an
equal footing with the.n.
The Post has from tho first been ut
terly opposed to appropriations that were
nuneecessary, and has called for the'strict
est eeonemv from the beginning, but in
talking wiih Mr. Bridges, who by the
way, is a very fair-minded man, the
Post is led to believe that his claim is
made on facts and that it is nothing
more than right that Drain receives the
help asked for, provided the same help
is tendered to the other educational in
stitutions of this state. T he citizens of
Douglas county are centrally located and
it wou'd be a great saving to tho south
ern residents of the state, :ts well as the
central jwpnla'ion, in transportation
alone, if this school at Drain eonld bo
made a good scnucl at an expense of
$5,000 ;r aunmsi t-j the state of Oregon.
There are many features that have cot
been nienti'W.ed that are favorable to the
proprused bill to be Introduced by Rep
resentative Bridges, and tho Post simply
gives the facis of the case .is ell-iced from
Mr. Bridges in the conversation hsld
