WHAT THE LEGISLATURE DID
FOR EDUCATION. i
The General Assembly Was Kind to the j
Cause, and the tate Has Awakened ,
to Better Thing lUlueatioiially.
ltuleigli Kew and 01 .server.
There were three general tills
before the legislature looking to th.jj
improvement of the public ecluo's. ;
These were: 1st the llolt bill com
pelling each eotiuty to carry out the '.
constitutional requirement to levy .
suflieietit tax to secure 11 four
months school in each district hi j
the suite and giving such counties i
out of the "secoui 100,000 dollars,".
one dollar for every twj dollars so j
levied. This is the requirement of j
the constitution and has never been
stricken out though the constitution
has been repeatedly amended. It .
has been inoperative because of ec-
tain decisions of the Supreme court. I
It was thought that the Supreme j
court would now sustain the law j
and declare the education of its citi
zeus a "necessity." Many counties!
which have been receiving large;
sums at I lie expense of the state,!
it was thought, would reassess their
property so as not to require help1
from the state. The bill did not :
pass, becaus.' it was thought its poli-!
tieal (fleet would be bad on the ad- j
ministration and certain congress- j
men got scared. If the bill had;
been enacted into law it would have !
assured a four months school in
every district in the state for the j
first time in lifty years.
2 The next bill sent forward was j
one enacting ;i miU compulsory j
education law. This passed both :
houses with cei tain amendments j
and exceptions. It-was introduced,
by Mr Dilling, a null owner from
Gaston, and was urged 1 y the Jun
ior Order of Anieiican Mechanic?.,
It permits elections upon lutition,
to the board of education upon the .
subject, and in case of extremely
low enrollment and attendance with-:
out a vote. It is utulei stood

was kind to the cause of education,
rightly esteeming that no dollar

dollar lost. '
