as "The Young People's Society."
This organization Is one whose pur

Lake County Out of Debt.
In another column of thia issue ap
pears notice from the Treasurer of Lake
County to the holders of all warrants
drawn and protested on or before the 11
th, day of March 1905, that there is
money in the treasury for' their pay
ment. This is believed to include every
demand against the county; and it is
further understood there will be credit
balance of 12,600 after all legal existing
demands are paid.
It is a pleasure to us, to ccngratulate
the people of Lake County upon this
achievment of our County Court, and es
pecially the men who achieved this.
When it is remembered that, three
years ago, Lake County had outstanding
and unpaid, f(3,000of indebtedness; and
that the board has given the County as
good a service in other respects as any
former board has given, and that has al
so, been paid; then we can see more
clearly the value of that 'business tact
which has brought such good results.
There is, underlying thjs, another
very interesting fact. This three years
history of accomplishment by the ad
ministration, places beyond dispute the
fact that Lake County may, under skill
ful management, now begin to make
provision for taking up some public im
provement, without creating the least
distress fo tax payere of J.ake County,
and without danger of again allowing
indebtedness to accumulate. This is
proven as clearly as a truth can be dein- -onstrated
We-hope to eee this done.

disestablishing two of the Normal
Schools, and had made reasonblo ap

course for the people than to do what
the legislature should have done?

referendum would accomplish this,
