A High school to be maintained join Tiv by Gearhart township and Riverside Boron Gli will be established on the South Side. This was decided a Pou at a joint meeting of the school hoards of the two above named districts held on Friday Nigist. It is the culmination of an agitation set on foot u year or so ago in which there was a division among the tax payers with attendant controversy which at times made things interesting on the South Side. The question was made an Issue at the last election. The directors favouring a High school were elected by a substantial majority. This it was thought would Settle the matter but in View of the opposition to be Over come the new school Board could not Seo its Way Clear to proceed at once to establish a High school. The project it should he remarked was not abandoned. Time was passing rapidly however and fearing that tiie wishes of the tax payers so emphatically expressed at the polls might not be carried out by tiie school Board a citizens meeting with j. H. Kase president and e. W. Young Secretary was held in the school House at South Dauville of Bat urday evening the 10th lost.,at which a committee consisting of j. H. Kase Aud 17. W. Young was appointed to visit the department of Public instruction at Harrisburg to ascertain what obstacles if any Lay in the Way of establishing a joint High school by the township and the Boron Gli. The committee visited Harrisburg on thursday. It did not find or. N. C. Schaeffer in his office but from the Deputy superintendent of Public instruction it received All the information it desired. The department was under the impression that the High school in controversy related to Gearhart township Only Aud made the Point Blank assertion Attiat the District was too weak to maintain a High school. This was certainly a Surprise to the committee As tiie proposition voted on a amp a joint High school and no other kind was Ever contemplated although it is a fact that in general discussion even in Booth Danville people seen to have lost eight of the fact that the High school contemplated was designed to embrace both the township and tiie Boroug ii. Tiie departments misapprehension was discovered to be due to tire miscarriage of a letter forwarded to har Richburg after a joint meeting of the two school boards in which specific information was sought concerning tie establishment of a joint big Chi >1 As soon As the department Unic Stool that the propos Rion related to a joint High school it freely Avo the establishment of one As comb no to nil requirement and being u i Witlin a e provisions of the so 1 it Law. A two years course was t Man idea by tiie Dep Ameur Aud adopted saturday night at the joint meeting of the two Shrol boards. The Only Point which admits of any que a Tion at All is whether or nor Nuder the opposition a sufficient number of pupils will attend in order to entitle the District to the annual appropriation in Anil of High schools. In this matter the two districts have decided to take the risk. An adjourned meeting of citizens with fifty present was held thursday night at which the committee made a report of its visit to far Risburg. Fol lowing a Resolution was unanimously adopted requesting the school directors of Gearhart township to Nice with the directors of Riverside Boroug ii and take action looking to the establishment of a joint High school thereby carrying our the wishes of tiie tax payers. Friday nights meeting. Pursuant to this Resolution on Fri 1 Day night the school directors of the township met in the school House at South Dauville for tiie express purpose a of acting on the High school proportion. By invitation the school Board of Riverside Boroug ii was part eur. It was moved and seconded that a out High school he established. In the vote that followed b. F. Laudan. John a freeze o. W. Gearhart Aud John Morphy Gearhart township. Supported tiie High school. T. W. Clayton and w. W. Gal irk tiie other directors of the township declined to vote. Tiie directors of Riverside Boroug ii that were present i. C. Yeager. R. B. Bird John wild Smili and Harvey Shultzz supported the High school proposition. Thus the measure carried. The joint High school will be established in one of tiie rooms of the Sonjii Danville building formerly occupied by the grammar school. The two grammar schools of the joint District will be consolidated and will occupy the room belonging to the Gram mar Grade in the Riverside school building. John Murphy of Gearhart township Partie were at work yesterday of the fish dam installed in tiie River near the riffles. The services of a horse were brought into requisition which along with the men attracted considerable attention out in Midstream. Conditions for catching eels by fish baskets did not prove very favourable last season Aud it is doubtful if the persons who installed the dam were paid for their trouble. Last year s Walls jul the main still exist and will require but Little fixing up so that tiie fish Basket of the same spot this year can be installed with comparatively Little Cost. Fyke nets or eel pots. The change made in the fish Laws by the act of May 1, 1909, must be taken into account by All persons who contemplate installing fish baskets Fyke nets or eel pots. The act in question provides that fish baskets May he used from the 15th Day of september to the 13th Day of november in each year both dates inclusive and from four of clo it k in the afternoon until eight o clock the following morning tor the capture of eels. No Wing Walls of any two baskets shall be within Twenty feet of Eracli Osiier at the upper end or reach from main Shore to main Shore or extend Over More than three fourths of toe Width of the Stream or occupy so much of the Stream As to prevent the passage of canoes or boats or be constructed of Auy Nyber material than i Hobo stones. Tiie Bottoms of fish Basket shall be made of Well rounded wooden slats not More Rhau two to Hes wide so set that they shall not be less than three eighths of a Inch apart the Bottoms must be movable for the entire Width of each Aud every fall and said Bottoms or parts of Bottoms must be taken out of said Falls or so adjusted As to make it impossible for them to catch fish from eight o clock in the morning Aud kept out until 4 in the afternoon. I toilet the act of May 1, 19c9, Fyke nets eel pots or dip nets in streams not in habited by Trout May be used for tiie capture of eels Catfish suckers. Mullets and carps from the 1st Day of july until the3et Day of May of the year next ensuing both dates inclusive. The new Law provides that no Fyke net or any eel pot shall have any wings attached to either of them or be set or fastened to any Wing Walls or within ten feet of any Wing Walls or be ret with ii ten be Etc each other and the space Between each shall he free from All Obs tru a tons for the passage of Tislim or for any Fyke net or eel pot to have a err ram e into the funnel thereof of 11 or i a a six inches or with an Botsh a d a?.ferof the Routh of Mora to a i the inches nor shall any such nets be ? it teed or used from Satu Tda it iritis monday morning at 6 o clock 1 tiie Meek next ensuing. Each Fyke net or eel pot must have fastened thereon a mgt tut tag hearing the name Aud residence of the owner. Dust nuisance on South Side owing to the protracted drought the dust at Nuy places is becoming an insufferable nuisance. Nowhere is this condition More in evidence t la it on the Bridge approach at South Danville where All the read leading from the expansive Atta on the South Side of the River converge Aud under the end tortuous traffic the dust is deeper than is found any where else earlier in tiie season someone suggested the advisability of applying crude Petroleum As a Means of effectively putting an end to the dust nuisance. Nothing seemed to grow Cut of it however and in tiie continued absence of rain the conditions Are As above described. It might be interesting to learn that in Many other localities Wiere tiie du6t is a nuisance the Oil remedy is being applied wit i excellent results. In one of the streets of Williamsport crude Oil was applied tuesday by sprinkling. The dust was six inches deep but the Oil formed a coating on the surface that kept the powdered Earth from flying. A slight dust yesterday Rose from tie feet of the horse but none from the wheels of vehicles. Many questionable causes Are appealing for Public support. And k. R. Bird of Riverside Boroug ii were selected As members of the High school Board Quot to transact business pertaining to the joint High school. On Friday night primary teachers were elected miss Blanche Campbell for the school at Bouth Dauville and miss Rita Gunlick of Rue town. For the school at Kipp s run.
