Republicans Criticized by Editor in 1910

(01/26/2002)

Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 4/26/1910.

The Republican administration expects the teachers of this state to raise a family of the Roosevelt style, buy eight or ten dollars worth of books each year, give the state two dollars for each examination, spend from three to ten attending, one dollar for Institute work, lose their time all for the sum of thirty or forty dollars for teaching for six months.  If that is not the limit, we would like for someone to show why.  It is time the teachers of West Virginia set up and take notice of the Payne-Aldrich tariff bill, the Dawson tax law and the Virginia debt question.  They are Ephriam joined to their idols.
