Mr. Roeder, from Committee on Common Schools, submitted the following report:

The committee to whom was referred

H. F. No. 9, "A bill to establish the Common School System in the Territory of Nebraska," ask leave to make the following report:

Having had the same under consideration, we hereby lay before the House a short review of its main features, consisting in the following:

The bill provides for a Territorial Superintendent, as the mainspring to set the school system into early and practical operation. The main defect in our present system is the impossibility of securing a qualified person to take charge of the responsible and multiplied duties for such a small remuneration, as provided, and the difficulty under that system to collect the necessary funds to give it vitality. In order to induce men to spend their time and talents in serving the public with all that enthusiasm such a cause deserves, we must conclude to pay a sufficient compensation, and this the bill proposes to do by giving to the Territorial Superintendent a salary of one thousand dollars, and allowing him traveling expenses, when absent from the Capitol on business pertaining to his office. The bill further provides for County Superintendents, whose duties are to divide the counties into proper districts, apportion the schools amongst the different districts, appoint and examine teachers, and do all other necessary business provided for and connected with his office. The different districts in the county are to be superintended by directors elected by the voters of each district, who have to determine the number of schools in the district, the manner in which school-houses have to be built and located, to take charge of books, apparatus, &c., and to perform and discharge faithfully all other business, belong to their office. The school fund is proposed to consist of three distinct funds, the teachers' fund, the library fund, and the schoolhouse fund. The teachers' fund is to be raised by an assessment of two mills on the dollar valuation upon all taxable property of the Ter.
