TUITION FEES [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 16 February 1900
TUITION FEES Cannot be Exacted in Any of the Public Schools. City Superintendent of Schools Russell of San Jose has received an opinion from Attorney General Ford which throws open the primary and grammar grade- of the" city to all pupils living outside the city limits, and will undoubtedly abolish the tuition fees that city has been charging for outside pupils. The Attorney General states that the education and the management and control of public schools are a matter of State care and supervision, and that a city for primary and grammar school purposes stands upon the same basis as a school district, and School Trustees cannot lawfully charge tuition for the attendance of pupils from other districts. " ' This applies, of course, to all the public schools up to and including the grammar grades, - which are under the control of the State, but not to high schools maintained exclusively by local taxation. — Record-Union.

The Farm Beat the Mortgage. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 16 February 1900
The Farm Beat the Mortgage. The following story illustrates the resources of a Nebraska farmer: A farmer got discouraged because he didn't get rich the first year, and, as there was a mortgage of $700 on . his farm, was about ready to jump the whole business, but determined to make one more effort and sowed eighty acres in wheat. It happened to be a poor year for wheat and the stand was not very good. Concluding that It wasn't worth harvesting he pulled up his stakes and mosied back to Missouri, leaving the farm to fight the mortgage all by itself. The farm was equal to the occasion. The wheat ripened, fell down and deposited the seed in the soil again. Next spring the wheat began to grow lustily. Some of the neighbors were honest enough to write about it down to the fugitive in Missouri, and he got interested enough to come back and take a look. Then he stopped and harvested his volunteer crop. He sold it for enough to pay off the mortgage and the rest of his debts and had a tidy l...

PRIVATE REVIEW OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 16 February 1900
PRIVATE REVIEW OF EVENTS. A Former Amador Besident Comments Upon General Topics. Stockton, February B.— Still the South African war goes on with no indication of abatement. There were persons in Amador county a few months ago who declared that the Boers could not resist the English for a month; who declared that "right" was no longer "might;" that the Creator's hand to help a just cause was but a myth. What say they now? Who sent the grasshoppers over the vclts in advance of the British troopers? May the God of Battles give speedy triumph to the arms of justice and right. . Roberts was kept out of Congress, which shows that Americans still respect American womanhood. Our Congress, urged by the best element, of our heterogeneous population, is striving to find a suitable way of preventing the election of such a creature (it seems unjust to honest men to call him man) in .tho future. Two bills have ' already '-been introduced in Congress. One by a Congressman from Idaho, providing for...

THE EXTRA SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 16 February 1900
THE EXTRA SESSION. The people of California have just occasion to congratulate themselves. The curtain has just fallen on the last act in a comedy that has been on the boards for a long time. The Republican party may also congratulate itself in view of the fact that, after a long and bitter fight, harmony has been evolved, an acceptable United States Senator elected and the warring factions have laid down their arms, shaken hands, and vied with each other in saying nice things about the newly elected Senator, Hon. Thomas B. Bard of Ventura. We might congratulate the Governor on the happy outcome of the extra session. We hope that he got what he wanted, and we know that the great party whose representaNow is the time to close. up the ranks, stand shoulder to shoulder, and with a united party place California where she belongs, squarely in the ranks of Republican States. Our Democratic friends may get all the satisfaction they can out of the repeal of the " wide-tire law," and the thi...

Dye, superintendent of the Amador Queen No. 1, was presiding officer, and after inviting the Vice Presidents to the platform, ht proceeded in a few felicitous remarks to introduce the first speaker, Hon.

It was noticeable that the audience responded heartily to each reference to the coming reelection of our broad-minded President, William McKinley.

McKinlay, of San Francisco, was introduced. Mr. McKinlay took up several of the topics more at lengt...
