IONE :-: OREGON
School Meeting Proven Illegal
State Superintendent Upholds In
dependent Editor as to Law. .
The following letter is self ex
planatory and proves that the
editor of this paper was right in
his contention of an illegal school
meeting held here Dec. 27, 1923:
" Salem, Or.. Jan. 3. 1924.
P. P. Hassler, Editor.
My Dear Sir:
Repjving to yours of recent
date, will say that section 254 of
the 1923 edition of the Oregon
School Laws reads in partus fol
lows: "The estimates required by this
act, together with a notice of the
time and place of which such esti
mates msy be discussed with the
levying board shall be published
at least twice prior to the time
appointed for such proposed
Section 238, and section 227 and
228, aho govern the matter of
posting a publishing the notices.
The Attomev-General has ruled
that "the estimates required by
this act" means the call for the
meeting including the budget that
is made out by the budget com
mittee, and also the original esti
. Yours very truly,
J. A. Churchill,
Supt. Public Instruction.
That the County Superintend
ent and the lone school hoard
made a "bust," is very evident
from the above. We cautioned
several members of the Board at
the time, but they deemed our
advice inexact. It wasn't smart
ness on their part, but lack of in
timate knowledge of the law, and
we pity them.
It is quite probable now that
nothing can be done to rectify
the blunder, and it may cost the
district money in the transaction.
The taxpayers of district No.
35, need not pay their school as
sessrnent tax unless they desire
to do so, as under the law there
was no school meeting, thus re
fuse to pay the tax.
It is up to the taxpayer now.
It is aso up to the school board
to hold a legal meeting if it can
be so arranged.
A friend at our elbow asks that
if the taxpayers refuse to psiy
their school assessment, will not
the members of the school board
be liable individually, to met
any deficit that arises from their
illegal action? We don't know,
but the law states a penalty in
Rev. J. C. Austin has left the
po.siiion of Financial Secretary of

is well known in lone.
To Drill For Oil Or Water
Ike Howard who owns a 12
acre tract east of town is figuring
with outside parties, on putting
down a well not less than 2,500
feet, in search of artesian water
or oil. About all that is holding
op the deal is Mr. Howard's fail
ure in obtaining a franchise from
the city - council, and as soon as
that is complete and a few minor
details out of the way, they may
get together on the deal.
Watch for "Bearded" Stranger
The Condon Globe-Times says!
that J. Amprose Hepwing, the!
"bearded stranger" who bilked
Andy Gump out of $500,000, is
headed towards Condon in dis- j
guise. Uncle Bim has posted a
large reward for Hewing s ap
prehension, and it is possible he
may try to sneak thru lone dur
ing these nights without street
lights, so we advise our city
marshal to buckle on his armor
and keep his peeper's open for
this notorious crook.
Union Pacific Does Fine Act
The Union Pacific Ry. Co., done
a fine charitable act to a widow
in the state of Washington the
other day that speaks well of its
oflicials. A widow whose hus
liind had died leaving a tew pay
ments yet to be made, on a tract
ot land, was unable to make
further payments to the railroad i
I'ompany, ana when the situation
was brought to the attention of .
the company officials, they im-j
mediately gave the widow title
to the land without further pay
ments. Yet you will find some
who cuss the ruilroa-i officials.
Union Services at Christian Church
A pet together meeting was
held at the enristian church last
Sunday afternoon, when quite a
represenative of the different
churches of Ion--, w ith the pas
tors of each met in discussion as
to ways and menus of currying
on the work for the coming year.
Rev. Head, Cason Johnson and
Brown, gave very interesting and
instructive talks on the funda
mentals of the Bible. Evi ning
services were held at the Baptist
churce, Rev. Johnson delivering
the address from the much dis
cussed and made Hurt of topic,
"Jonah and the Whale," which
was ably handled.
