To Enjoin High School
From certain movements being made by a few opponents of the High School
movement it is thought that an effort will be made to delay the establishment
of the school either by enjoining the Board of Directors from laying the
levy required for the building or by some other hindering process.
J.M. Harper, an attorney of Spencer, who is said to be employed by the
"vigilance committee," called up County Clerk Fleming, Tuesday, and directed
copies of all the orders entered in connection with the High School election
to be made. The work, was finished late Tuesday night and they were
dispatched to Spencer that night. It is reported that men are riding
the county, circulating petitions for some purpose, but as recall is not
in effect in West Virginia. We are at a loss to determine what can
be accomplished by petitions. It is reported that one formerly high
in educational circles in this county is engaged in the business.
A prominent citizen of Grantsville gives good advice to the disgruntled
ones by telling them to lay aside their injunctions and wait till they
catch us out and then give us a good "whoopin."
