Albany Will Not Have To Pay Interest.
Last Friday's Issue of the Albany
Herald contained the following:
Judge Hewitt yesterday rendered a
decision in the injunction suit of D. B,
Monteitli vs E. A. Parker, city treasur
er, which was brought to restrain the
treasurer from paying a warrant for
(9000 and Interest amounting to $3600,
Issued to the King Bridge Co., in pay
ment on the steel bridge which spans
the Willamette river at this city.
The court dissolved the injunction as
to the principal of $9000, but held that
the charge of interest was made .with
out law, and the treasurer is restrained
from paying such interest. The costs
were taxed to the King Bridge Co.
The attorneys for the city were
Wealherford & Wyatt. They did not
expect to secure an order for a per
petual injunction as to the principal
but contended that the contract for the
payminl of Interest was illegal, as the
city charter at the time the warrant
was issued contained no provisions for
the payment of interest on any war
rants, and they attacked the validity
of the issuing of the warrant on the
ground that the city was already In
debted to an amount exceeding the
limit prescribed by the charter. The
court held that this was true, but Hint
the subsequent Issue of $20,000 city
bonds legalized this indebtedness.
Had it not been for this actiou the en
tire amount would probably have been
declared illegally issued and not a
valid debt. The findings of Judge
Hewitt will release the city from the
payment of tbe $3500 interest, but will
require the payment of the $9000 prin
cipal, which was the point originally

this act, .
This office has become aware that
little or no attention is paid to the law
compelling children to attend school,
at least twelve weeks durlne the vear.
To look over the statistics one is im
pressed mat tliere must be manv chil.
dren of school age who do not attend
our public schools. This law was en
acted ior a purpose, and it is apparent
that the purpose contemplated was to
have the children attend tha
schools 111 order that illiteracy and
ignorance may be reduced to a mini
mum. The safety ond welfare of the coun
try depend lorirelv unon the efHciennu'
of our public schools, wherein not only
Knowledge of books and literature ia
considered, but where good govern
ment, loyalty and love of countrv ia
The law is on the statute book, and
should not remain a dead letter. The
duty of seeing It enforced rests with
me boards of school directors, aufl the
clerks of the several school districts.
The clerks of the several districts
having the number of nunils on the
statistical roll, and the teacher or
teachers of the districts having the
ages and numlier enrolled as in at
tendance at school, some knowledge
may be gained as lo how nearly this
law of school attendance Is observed.
This Is also one of the duties of the
county superintendent, that he should
acquaint himself with the attendance
at school and give direction to the
board of directors iu regard to the
matter of school attendance,
Bring this law before ttie people, ac
quaint them with its requirements and
penalties, and it is believed titers will
not be so many children, of the age
included bv the law. who do not. nn.1
will not attend the publio sohool. The
state does not get near the value it
deserves for the support of the common
schools, because of the fact that so
many do not avail themselves of the
privilege. The state cannot afford to
allow this neglect and indiffeienoe of
the publio schools to exist, but must,
in some way, see tliac the children
have some education.
