them under tht elate apportionment. This
briiiKb us to ihe question again as to tht
origriu and source of our oommon school
tunj The origin and sourees are found
In the enabling act. under which Nebraska
was admitted as a state, and iu lht consti
tution of ihe state. The great source of
both our perma.iii nt and temporary school
fund Is found m tlit principal and tht in
come arising fiom tin sales ana lease of
secuoiik Nua. It ana 'Jt in each township
in Uie state In the earliei uays th oast
em half of the stale contributed lo the
temixiiary hool tund. that is la the state
api'oi uonmcit of the common school fund,
n.ucii more llian the western counties It
continued this ratio for perhaps a quarter
of a oeniury It must be understood, too,
tha.t in many instance sectiuas ok it
ana Do m many uwniiijis of the eastern
counties had already Iwru taken by home
steader or Indian reservations and the
state had to select In lieu thereof other
section, mostly in the western oounuo,
ac indemnity therefor. It follows, there
fore, that while on the returns it seems
that the western counties are no- Jiaying
more to the common school fund than they
leceive back frum 'he state in the appor
tionment of this fund: in reality, much of
this fund e-ontnbuted by the weatem coun
ties should be credited to tht Income from
Uit eastern noun uea. Anothel Ihmg to It
rememtiered is thai eeeuons Nos. lit and
S in the counties of tht eastern part of
the stats were sold under the laas of the
state lor not lea than 17 an acre. Tlit
money leeelvcd was credited to the tier-
I marient school fund, and tht Interest
j meieon kt the current rates was turned
into what is known as the state apporrion-
metil for the use of the temporarj school
. fund to be distributed in accordance with
! law. The western counties had the benefit
I, of a higher rate of interest upon the per
manent school fund al ax earlier date tbsc
the state is able to recti: ve upon lis In
vestments at the present time In other
! words. If the law liad lieen sucb that the
easieri: part ol the slate could have re
I lained its land until now. tht Question of
I Inequality would lie materially changed,
and tht eastern counties would be demand
; ing a new law in order that th west woulJ
', not be getting mure than Its just share. i
it must not ne forgotten that there Is
now nearly i,.ui.ixK in lh permanent school
fund, which in tbt main, was derived from
the sales of school lands in the eastern I
counties ard were t be rate of interest a j
