Th«re are a few, and we believe, only a few, who for several years past, have seemed to have a desire to force a clear majority opposed, intp the belief that it is necessary in or^er to keep ,ap with edacational ad-yanoement, to give the school board the power to employ the teachers for the several districts in this town. The main argument in favor of such a change it sud to be the fact that dis-triet committeei have sisters, cousins and ionti, Which they employ to teach in their respective districts, who are not au»ylied to teaoh the yonricridet how to shoot. One advocate even goes so far as to say that in his own district there is not one yjcrson who is qualified to act in the capacity of district committee. While we certainly deplore the unfortunate condition of the district in which the champion of the movement resides, we find in all of the other districts in the town gentlemen who are abundantly able ^nd willing to act in the capacity of committeemen. And regarding the sisters, cousins and aunts, we would like to be informed if the school board are entirely dftstitute of these valuable relatives. Also to remind eaid board that under the present eystem, they have the privilege to reject any or all of these unqualified teachers employed by those illiterate nnd unefilicient district committees. That it is not only their privilege but their duty to do so. The whole proposed change smacks strongly of an attempt to concentrate power, even in the public school system, in order that a few more dollars may be added to the salaries of those who are now liberally paid. —Ladies dont forget about those jpatteras at W.
