The School Question.
It must be confessed that the article
in the Argus of last week in regard to
the school board was read with some
chagrin. (With apologies to the intro
ductory sentence of the article in ques
tion.) We agree entirely with the Argus
when it says it is unbecoming tor any
officer to resent the action of a tax
payer when he invokes the attention
of the courts .fairly to protect himself,
but when that taxpayer so far forgets
himself in his cal as to provoke resent
ment we believe it is an entirely dif
ferent affair. For instance, those who
brought'huit ugainst the district de
clared that the members of the board
were not the officers of the district at
all, but were a set of pretenders, that
they were bankrupting the district and J
prays that a receiver be appointed to'
save the people Such an attitude in
We fail to understand what the

We, your finance committee, have
ourcfully checked cash items of re
ceipts and expenditures of the city
treasurer and find his accounts and
books correct as per statement here
with submitted. Sifiuod,

Uumpelled an admission on the part ot
the ljoaWl that they Were entertaining
ilcsigus of something or another, u
he meant location he is clcurly wrong
for every body knew Unit the board
had bargained for a blocU of ground:
if he meant the policy of conducting
the sellouts he is wrong again for
uvofybody knew that the new building
must be used either for high school
and wurd or else central grade.
As to tho "significant fact that ttiu
action of the litigants had in no way
interfered with the fullest powers of
the board to negotiate the bonds" we
have only this to say that two mem
bers of our leiral fraternity state mat
the asking for an injunction was in
effect the injunction granted ami
pending the action of the district judge
the board was powerless to proceed
further unless they courted contempt
Wc imagined that all hopes of pres
ent south ward building being used
were over but it seems we were wrong.
The Argus says the cry of "wolf" was
raised when there was no wolf but al
most in the next breath suggests that
should the buildinir be used the tcacll-
ers could be Instructed to dismiss school
n Windy days. A brlclt buihlmg wnicn
is not safe on a windy day is not safe
at any lime.
Hut our most serious objection to last
week's article in the Argus is the attri
buting of bad motives to the board, as
tho they were harboring some nefar
ious swindle, or some other vagne in
definite outrage. The board meetings
are public, thu minutes of the board
are open to public inspection and it
devolves upon you, as a newspaper
man to inform yourself, get the news
and give it to the people.
We seriously regret that this hchool
question developed in the way in
whluh It did in this community but we
bee a ray of light ahead and nothing

A woman is conscious of her superior appoarance
when she is wearing an
American Beauty Corset
Slie knows she looks well then, that she is
charmingly attractive and that her beauty is
greatly enhanced because she is wealing a corset
that produces such magnificent results. A cor.-et
that is designed for that purpose and is the crea
tion of painstaking skill in every step of its manu
facture. The woman who wears these dainty cor
sets, "gets the habit" and will wear no other.
To be a good dresser, start right, that is at the
foundation, the corset.
