Stiih ull of UluckwelL
Ulackwell Sun: There arc accord-
fnir lothe government report 100705.30
of territorial school money In tho ter-
ritorial Irea&ury. There nre 1500
school houses containing furniture
which en a fair estimate would be
worth S750 each or 81125.000. Tho
Ihw of 18l7 requires five per cent for
1S07 und Ave per cent for 1S9S lobe paid
info the territorial treasury as an In-
surance fund which would be some-
thing like 311:2500 more school inuncv
held by the terrilorinl Irensurer with
the r in tit to loan the tame and use the
interest us his profits. This is not the
worst feature of the school miinage-
menl. The treasurer is required to
give no bond whatever for the proper
ue und return of this vuslsura of mon-
ey which is intrusted to his care.
There should be a general ugilatiou of
this bubject until tse huve some better
law requiring bonds regulating the ue
of school inotey und the application of
the interest derived therefrom.
