Tlio election on tho $45,000 bond
Insiio for tho purchaso of property
and erection of n high school build
lute will tako place next Haturday a
week, May 10. From Kcueral Indi
cations thcro seems n fair prospect
for a cloto election, especially as
those most directly Interested In Retting-
tho school located In Wlestorla,
tho site that will bo put up, are cam-
palKtiliiR hard.
Ono fact In connection with tho
matter that, It Is ballove.d has not
been Kuncrnlly known, was developed
yesterday, In nn Interview with J.
I. Knyi'H, manaRer of Tho llend Com
lisny. Mr. Keycs Is frankly opposed
to tho proposed bond Issue. tnklnK
tho Kround that It Is more than tho
town need or can ufTord, and that
tho hlRhor taxes may prove a very se
rious obstaclo to those contemplatlnR
local manuracturltiK Investment.
"Hut what I especially want to
say," added Mr. Keycs, "Is that Tho
llend Company owns sIlRhtly moro
than half of tho proponed alto. I want
this to bo known rlRht now. Up to
tho present It has been Reuerally un
derstood that Mr. Wlcst wna tho solo
owner of tho tract, and I hao under
sood that this has been usod as an
nrRiimnnt In favor of this property
as opposed to tho other tracts offered
by this company."

Commenting on this statement,
the bisters Herald has the following
to say;
"For anyone not familiar with
