CONSOLIDATION OF SCHOOLS.
Consolidation of school districts

of tho state under tho new school law,
will probably bo undertaken by sever

Is movement under way to consolidate
the throo districts In Sams Valley into
orio district and to put In a graded
sohool. The proposition is being dis
cussed of Joining to tho Talent dis

FORECAST FOR NEXT ELECTION.
General Grosvenor, the vetoran
Ohio congressman, Is not bapply un
less he U figuring on election results.
And tho strange part about the mat
ter Is that the Oh loan Is seldom far
out of the way. The other day, dur-'
lng a debate In the house, the general
becomed Involved la a controversy
over politics, during which he gave
out his prediction regarding the re
sult of the election next year. The
total number of electoral votes In 1904
will bo 47(5, so that 280 are necessary
to a choice. Of these Mr. Grosvenor
conceded as surely Democratic only
151 the votes of Alabama, Arkansas,
Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mis
souri, North Carolina, South Carolina,
Tennessee, Texas and Virginia; In
other words, the solid South, with
Maryland not included in it, but Ken
tucky counted in. As sure Republican
states, Mr. Grosvenor sots down the

A study of these figures show that
to win tho Democrats must not only
carry all of the states conceded to
the Domocrats, all of those placed in
the doubtful list, but as well get' 26
of those votes classed by General
Grosvenor as surely Republican
surely not a pleasant prospect for the
leaders of the present minority party.
It Is certain that Dry an could not
carry a single one of these states
classed as Republican, and It Is Just
as oertaln that of those spoken of as
doubtful he would not get a dozen
votes. Unless there Is a mighty up
heaval before next November It will
be seen that "Okl Figgers" Is very
conservative In his election predlc
tlons. Land Board Meets.
The state land board yesterday af
ternoon met and decided the swamp
land contest lietween Senator Mara
tsrs and others on the one side and
J. W. Iiamaker and others on the oth
er. About 11.000 acres were Involved
in the transaction, and the state board
decided to advertise the lands in con
troversy, and sell it to the highest
bidder, thus giving both contestants
an equal show at securing the proper
ty; in the case of the lands not being
contested the board fixed the price at
1.00 per acre,
The land board, during the month
of November, received $il.M8.S$ on

term of service there have come many
kicks, there have also been many
words of commendation and encour
agement, that have lightened the bur
den of the work somewhat.
"I now wish to explain why I re
signed as mayor of Salem
I did not
resign because I wanted to move
away. I want to live In Salem, and to
have a house In this town that will
cost $10,000, and, If I have my health,
I will have a residence of that kind. I
did not resign on account of the load
tho Independent municipal govern,
mont of tho greater city would bring
me. Nevor In tho history of the town
has there boon a need of a moro care
ful business organization than thore
lie oxprossod his pride In the rec
ord mndo by tho Citizens' Sdmlnls
trntlon in tho past five years, and
said that he favorod public Improve
ments consistent with tho ability of
the city to pay, and lie stated that the
city was not yot ready to own its
own water works nor to pay out $5000
a year for Marlon squaro Improve
ments, though he favored an expen
diture of $600 por year for each of the
two public parks.

greens. A large house party Includ
lng besides the mombers of tho royal
family a numbor of tho intimato
friends of thoir Majostlos was present
