THE RECORD OF
THE COST OF STATE
Tour Years of Democratic Eule With
out Code Law, $17,000,000; 4
Years of Eepublican Code
Four years of state government un
der the democrats and without a
code cost in round numbers $17,
000,000. Fonr years of state government
under the republicans with the code
cost in round numbers $50,000,000.
Four years ago while the demo
crats were doing so well, the repub
licans, through their spokesman, Mr.
M Kelvie, accused the democrats of
waste and extravagance. The repub
licans then promised the people if
they wert elected they would put
in the code system and save the tax
payers money. The code would re
duce the number of salaried office
holders, it would do away with du
plication and it would reduce taxes.
The republicans were elected. They
controlled both branches of the leg
islature and filled every office of
the state government. They passed
the code bill with its $20,000,000 of
appropriations to run the state for
tvo j-ears under the code $3,000,
000 more under the republicans and
under the code for two years than
it cost under the previous four years
under the democratic without the
That's going some.
Eut wait a minute. That is not all.
Then the republicans promised to
be rood and said if the people would
only elect them asrain they would do
better the next time.
They were elected again in 1920.
Then Mr. McKelvie and all the re
publicans said "Our re-election is an
endorsement of the code and the
way we spend money. The people
like the code and they like the way
we spend money so we will go ahead
and give them some more of the same
kind." Then the legislature gave
them $30,000,000 for the next two
years and three months, or $13,
i0 0,000 more under the republicans
and under the code than it cost un
der the democrats without the code
for four years.
Now the republicans are promis
ing to be good aerain and say if they
are re-elected they will do better
next time, Tlut their doing better
seems to 4e raising the appropria
tions and the state taxes.
When the democrats were in con
trol of the state government the state
house held all the departments of
the executive government. When the
republicans and the code took con
trol more room had to be provided to
care for the extra departments and
high salaried secretaries and clerks.
Many offices were rented in the down
town districts and much rent has
been paid during the past four years.
Taxes increased by leaps and bounds.
More duplications have been made in
various departments. In fact just the
reverse has been done by the repub
licans than what they promised the
people four years ago.
The taxpayers have paid dearly
for the past four years under the
Now the democrats are offering to
repeal the code and reduce the taxes
and try to help the people to return
to normalcy but the republicans say
"it can't be done."
If the republicans are elected
again this fall they will again claim
that the election is an endorsement
of the code. They will again claim
that it is an endorsement and an ap
proval of the way they have been
spending money. They will again say,
"The people like the code and they
like the way we have been spending
money. The people like to see $5.
000 secrrtaries made out of $1,500
clerks. The people like to pay big
taxes." The republicans go on the
theory that the more taxes a fellow
pays the better he likes his govern
ment. If Charles W. Bryan is elected gov
ernor and he is given a democratic
legislature and a corps of democratic
state executive officials, the code law
will be repealed, useless duplicating
departments will be cut out, many
high salaried secretaries and clerks
will be taken off the payroll, taxes
will be reduced and everything will
be done to help the people back to
normalcy and help lighten the bur
den which they are carrying. The
democrats are pledged to this pro
gram. GEORGE E. HALL.

Hornsby rolled up a magnificent
batting average of slightly over .400
for 1922, including his circuit clouts
which brought his total base hitting
up by bounds.
While having a higher percentage
than Hornsby, Sisler, judged by the
experts to have been the most valu

this year, is not the slugger that is

Sisler had only eight homers to his

that the Bambino poled out more
four base hits in 1921 than Hornsby
did this year, fifty-nine to be exact,
