Ardmore Sunday August I 1909
MAKE TAXES LIGHTER.
Carter county him before It now
the first real buslines proH)sltlou
that has over lieen presented to It.
The question 1h not one of politics
lint one of business. The problem Is.
Hlmll the county Issue bonds for
building a court house .ind Tor Itt tt tl -lug
hrldgiw and roads. It In one
that deserves tho host thoiiKlit of
every citizen. No taxpayer win do
himself and his neighbor Justice by
ass' rtlng that he will wto one way
or the other without flint giving
consideration to the questions In-
volved Shall 'Carter county umko those Im-
provements with cnMh collected from
the iiockfU of the people during
tin hc 1 1 men or shall they miilte them
wltn Hie other fellow's nioney ami
with our noteH due In twonty-rivo
iMuny people shirk from a bom!
Issue when the question Ik first
preHented. Naturally the thinking
man begins to make figures. If ho
can Kill" '' wtlng for the Inane he
will do so. If he and the other citi-
zens of tlu county must lone ho
votes nKaliiHt It. Let's see how this
problem of the road and lirldKo bonds
tlKures out. In tho lust eighteen
months there has been expended on
the roaiU In this count J'JI.iMIO and
If the urKcnt requests for work
could have all been met the oxpondl-
turcs would have been twice tills
amount. Thin Is at the rule of six-
teen thousand dollars a year. Now
figure the interest on the $200000
bond Issue at !i per cent and It will
bo seen that the oNomllturoii under
the bond Isoio will be ten thousand
dol'ars a year. Here Ik a saving of
six thousand dollars The sinking
fund does not have to be provided
for until after the expiration of ten
years. Ttie interest only must he
paid. The premium on the Issue will I
pay the taxes that are required for
Interest for the first year and a '
half so the taxes will bo much le ;
for tho present. At the expiration of
ten years It is reasonable to ostl- 1
mate that all the Indian lands will j
tie taxable more lauds will be In ti
state of cultivation more farm hous- I
es will be built more business bout-
os will be In Ardmore and more ami .
larger stocks of good will he In the
county and the tax rate. In order I
to create the sinking fund will I
never have to be Increased.
One of the objections urged to i
the Issue Is thnt the estimate on
the bridges nro too high. Most prob-1
ably they are. The estimate made 1
Is .1 mere matter of form. The price
must come within the estimate and
an come as much lower as con- I
tractors can be urged to bid. Every
bridge will be let on bids and what-!
over the surplus Is it will be into
h general fund for road and bridge i
mprovemcnts and can he spent any- I
where in the county.
t'ar'i r county farmer would llko
to ban- an opportunity to earn this '
money at a time when the drouth has
nhortenod tho crom. It will be noth- '
lug shorter than a calamity to fall j
to carry the lxinds for tho roads and '
bridges of Carter county.

TEACHERS' SALARIES HAVE
BEEN RAISED THIS YEAR
DIG SCHOOL YEAR IN SIGHT
AND NO HIGH SCHOOL READY
The school year beginning SJ1-

Tin- physical child will be a groat
study and center of Interest this
your In the city siiojls. While it Is
a crying hIiiiiiio that a now high
school not equipped and ready
to receive the high school thereby
relieving thu overcrowded ward build-
ings still thnt will not deter the
IsMird or education from making
grout efforts to give the children
tho best sun I lory conditions Ksslbk.
Steps are now being taken to work
out a filtered wotnr supply for each
ward. This will bo one of tho groot-
out hloMlng ever devised for bet-
tor schools here. Tho superintend-
ent of the scli-ools Iiiis secured the
aid and cooperation of Dr. J. II.
Ilargiiie the city physician and to-
gether they nro going to set on foot
a (NWiipiilttu for health which will
through lhi teachers reach each
child. The director of physical train-
ing Is awoy at University of Colo-
nolo mimmcr m-hool taking a spe-
cial course. She U determined to
work out o scheme for the children

The Best Teachers.
There has been a steady growth
or teaching in Ardmore. It is said
that the Ardmoro touchers are known
through this mid a purl of adjoin-
ing stiitos as beliiK the most pro-
gressive In Hie state. No pains have
been spared this year to get the best
teachers on the market. Salaries are
In Ardmoro a little better than lu
most cities of the tate. Tho ixiard
mode n sweeping nilse of ten per
cent on oil mlarles this year. If
this had boon done in the cities of
the usl the big educational Jour-
no's would have been braggliiK
about It yet. IIIkIi school salaries
run from seventy to one hundred
thlity-threo dollars per month. Su-
pervisors and there are three range
from sixty-five to eighty dollars.
Touchers from forty-five to sixty-
five dollars. While these figures are
too low for the competent energetic
tcac-hei yet they nro as good as
the best olsewiiero mid Ardmore
should have as good mid happy touch-
er workers for her children as may
The high school Ik tho hind of the
system. It Is tho dynamo ami must
Iwivo power within It coming from
men ond women of the best universi-
ty mid normal training experience
mid natural force and leadertdilp. It
Is (i big thing lu the eye ot the
nmnogoineiit of the city schools
lo select nny tisichor and especially
the high school principal. Out of a
hundred jipplloont for this place
this year there was a 1kib down

board and superintendent met and

! has a start It has never known be-
fore. While It l the view hero that
I the high hcIk.oI Is tho people's
college and should train for life
rather than for college yet It is
an lwnest and practical ambition of
tho superintendent that It reach the
ixilnt where Its graduate will re-
ceive entrance to any university In
tho land. To do this university
teachers nro demanded of high
schcsils by such as Harvard Yale
University of Virginia etc. The
nmke-up of our present faculty will
hastily tend toward that end. It
might bo said that at present our
high school takes rank "A" at the
University or Oklahoma mid the A.
& M. Oollogo or this state. No other
school can do more.

ATTRACTS LEGAL ATTENTION
"ANTI-MOB LAW" OPINION OF !
JUSTICE HENRY M. FURMAN
Oiithrle. Okla.. .Inly III. --Comments
of attorneys throughout the state on i
the remarkable "anti-mob" opinion j
of priNsiding Justice l'uriiian of the
state criminal court show tho Interest
lu the stand taken by the Jurist.
The case was that of the state)
vs. A. N. llyers. a wealthy dole- j
bo Okla. towusito promoter con-
victed of wife murder whine appeal
was based on the ground that the 1
district Judge permitted u physician
to testiry that the nnture of the vie- I
tint's wounds precluded a suicide the-
ory. This eWdenee was declared" to
be an error. Judge Kuruiau In re- '
fusing to reverse tho lower court
admits the error but holds It to be j
"harmless. Ho says: I
"The enforcement of the doctrine
of harmless error In Oklahoma will
greatly Improve tho character of our
criminal trials. Lawyers will ho
compelled to try their caaos upon j
their actual merits and will cease '
devoting so much time lu attempting
to force technical errors into the i
record. The needless waste or much
Mllliablo time and the expenditure
of a great deal of money will be
saved mid for bettor results will be 1
reached In tho administration ot 1
Justice and the courts will gain the
ronfldonro nnd respect of the people
and acts of mob violence will ceaot
to disgrace our state. !
'Wo are very sure that If the 1
people hail Implicit confidence In the '
courts to speedily enforce the law
upon the merits of each case there
would ho no lynching in this state j
"ine reversal or the Just convic-
tions of the guilty upon purely tech-
nical (piestions a the prime cause of
want of confidence In the courts'
This want of confldcnro often results
In mob violence on the part of n
long jiufforlng and outraged public.
"Wo have tho highest possible au-
thority for this statement for wc are
told In the liible that:
" ltccau8o sentence against nn evil
work is not executed speedily there-
fore the hearts of the sons of men
is fully set In them to do evil' "

FIRST LAY SERMON BY

TIAN CHURCH THIS EVENING.
This cenlifg at the Christian

that will be heard during August
will bo delivered the speaker Inins
Commissioner W. It. llurnltt.
lu the absence of the pastor he
suggested lief are he left that the Sun-
day evenings during the month be
occupied by well known business
men who might chose their own sub-
ject and give tho public any ideas
or Information they desired about
public questions and events and as
a result five prominent citizens
agreed to preach lay sermons and all
ot them are much pleased with the
Innovation and promised to proparo
some Interesting talks. Since tho an-
nouncement of the names or the
gentlemen who will address the peo-
ple on these five Sunday nights
there has been unusual interest man-
il'ested among tho citizens and bus-
iness men who will hear one or
their number talk from a pulpit.
The sermon this evening by Lay-
man llurnlti Is the first ami he
has said that ho will talk on the
subject of "How It Keels to Ito si
Commissioner." Mr. llurnltt Is well
kno.Mi for his humor and although
not having been a commissioner
but a few short months ho doubt-
less has experienced some queer
sensations and has round out many
tilings about city matters that will
bo worth hearing.
The public Is cordially Invite! to
hear Mr. llurnltt this owning at
Still). Unless Mr. llurnltt desires to
speak at considerable length the
services will not last over an hour
