The town board of the town of Weston met on the 2nd day of November and divided school district No. 2, known as the Hyslip district, setting off sections 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, and 11. 25 2 west, as a new district called No. 8. This new district has organized by electing A. M. Harriman clerk; C. P. La Fleur, director, and Charles Kayhart, treasurer, and they have voted a tax to build a new school house near the residence of C. P. LaFleur. A large number of people in both districts are dissatisfied with this division, and Ebrenzo Gates has appealed to the State Superintendent from the action of the board. The objections urged are that neither district can maintain a good school without oppressive taxation. The valuation of all real estate in the new district exceeds that in the old by $4,994, and the valuation of all property in the new district exceeds that in the old by $3,837.60. It is claimed that there are only three sections of good land left in the old district, section 14, 15, and 23, and that the other two sections, 16 and 22 are largely pine chopping. The people in the old district wanted section 9, 10, and 11, left in their territory, and it is stated that the people in three or four sections on the south line of the town of Eaton would have been pleased if they could have had a joint district with what is now Dist. No. 8 of Weston. The State Superintendent will probably not interfere with the order of the board unless some very palpable error is pointed out. The Superintendant on appeal will not interfere with the action of the board a matter of simple discretion unless there has been a plan abuse of their powers.
