As stated In our remarks yesterday
In relation to the school district, the
cities working under charters are also
left out, and Albany comes tn with
the rest, so she can make no levy nor
anwfWnent this year. To the present
harrnsaing and makes asad muddle.
Tbe facts are palpable however. Tbe
opinion of Judge Boise and all other
uuniiciui situation th la
iiiwjers who have examined the law
are to that effect,
A meeting of the city council was
hcldjlast evening to take the matter into
consideration. The matter was re
ferred to the committee on ways and
means and the city attorney to Inves
tigate and report at the meeting to be
held on Thursday evening.
Those who have avmlrm f. t
atlcro will have an exemption, prob
ably for one year, but will h. i
make it up eventually. The law is an
rxiKiienr one wheu it get into work
iug order, but it creates a hrHvhin i..
the blunder of not providing for the
time of the change from the old law to
the new one. Herald.
