THE HIGH SCHOOL QUESTION. The school board of Melrose desires herewith to make a statement of facts in regard to the high school to be voted upon August 15th. In making a canvass of the county we have been unable to find a single man ' who is op posed to the high school after he has been fully informed up on all phases of the question. The fact of the high Bchool law being one of the very best laws enacted in this state, and this being the first time the people have been called upon to avail themselves of the advanta ges to be obtained under the law, is the reason the people have so many wrong ideas and impressions of what the law really is. For instance, we find that tome one has aduanced the idea that the Melrose school board could, if they were so dis posed, levy the full two mills (which is the maximum which under the law can be levied for all high schools in the county) and use a part of this money to defray the expenses of main taining the public or common schools. In answerin...
