. At the moeting of the board of educa
tion this week it was apparent from the
assessors returns that a reduction
of pe o'yr 'the ndLstrkrt" 4ks
coming year was imperatively demauded, '
the assessed valuation being so much
lower than in any year previous. The :
estimated amount to run the schools is
about $12,000, $1,000 for building and j

The Low Assessment.
The assessor's returns are now all in,
and as foreshadowed in the Tribuxe some
time since, the valuation is very low. The
returns we believe have not been accu
rately footed, but it is believed the aggre
gate will not be much over $1,200,000, or
more than $300,000 less than last year.
This is not owing to the decrease in prop
erty, as a comparison of last year's returns
show, but to the very low valuations fixed
by assessors, in some cases nearly one-half
of that of last year. This complicates
county finances considerably, especially
the general fund, upon which the bulk of
county expenses falls, and may seriously
impair the credit of the county. That
there has been a health- growth in ma
terial wealth during the past year is ap
parent to an' one who is conversant with
the development of the county. The
population has largely increased ; a large
number of new school districts have been
created and eight or ten new votiug pre
cincts. In fact, everything indicates an
increase iustead of a decrease in wealth.
As a rule, we should not complain of a
low assessment, but in this case the county
will lose more than it will gain.
Uuder these circumstances it is evident
the general fund cannot possibly redeem
outstanding certificates and pay current
expenses, and warrants are likely to be
greatly depreciated thereby. In order to
save the credit of the county as much as
possible the commissioners should make
it known that they will submit a proposi
tion at the next election to fund the float
ing indebtedness, a step that would greatly
strengthen general fund warrants and in
fact all countv securities.

There were some thirty or forty
applications filed with the secretary
of the board of education for the
positions of teachers in this district
during the coming school year, but
the decision of the board to reduce
salaries will probably cause a num

of teachers was therefore deferred
until applicants should have an od
portunity to learn of the cut in
wages. The secretary will then
call a meeting to elect teachers.

NOTICE TO TEACHERS.
At a special meeting of the Board of
Education of this city held on the 11th
iu?t, the salaries of ail teachers for the
next year were reduced as follows: Prin
cipal of schools from $123 to $ 110 per
month, and all other teachers in the
district, f 10 each per month from the
present rates paid. The necessity for this
reduction is caused by the extraordinary
depreciation in the assessed valuation of
property in tlie district, which would
materially cripple the district's finances if
the present salaries were continued.
