Oounty Clerk.
Important to Assessors.
Tlie law nrovides that an assessors
meeting shall be held at the office of the
county clerk on the third luesuay oi
March in each year. . Section 40, chapter
77, page 6Wi, of the compiled statutes of
1HS9 reads as follows:
shall bft held annually on the third Tuesday
of March, at tlie oflice of the county clerk of
,. .. i, mriuUtia of the asscsfors of
iid comity for the purpose of consideration
In regard to the value of tiio variou kinds
and classe of property to lie by them us
aoua..,. onrt it shall bo the duty of each as-
sensor to attend such meeting, and to call
upon and receive from the county clerk the
necessary books and blanks for the assess
ment of property, and the failure of any
. assessor so to do shall be deemed sufficient
cause to declare bis olllce vacant, aim ior
the appointment of a successor."
There are none of what are usually
termed minor offices that are of so much
morlance as that of assessor, and in all
years the meeting of the assessors is a
provision of the law which should be
strictly lived up to, and. especially is
that Uie case this year. - There are , a
number of reasons why this is so. One
is that a uniform basis of valuation of
nrnnert v should be agreed on in accord
ance with law and another is the fact
that important legislation in regard to
assessment of property, failure to com
ply with which will make assessors lia
ble to severe penalties, is now pending
. , ',1 t. ln l Vii, fiuunca-
andilpassou win uppij w "o- '-'
mentor 191, and as a matter of self-
protection, if nothing more, every as-
sessor should attend the meeting at uie
office of the county clerk on Tuesday,
March 17th, in order to inform himseii oi
what the law requires him to do and
how to do it.
Financial Question.
Editor Joins al: Our friend, "No
Oteuljacker" picks us up quite crankily
for quoting official figures and makiug
some deductions from the same. He evi
dently thinks he is discussing the finan
cial ouestion by a rambling
aUack upon us. We were (bowing the
esultsofour present financial system.
A. system which he evidently endorses:
if so let him defend it. His article was
written to mislead and nothing more,
therefore we will notice it. The figures
we used were official and therefore must
be true. We stated that the money
imwer could render this a homeless and
propertyless people. He askes, "What
of ifr" Oh. nothing at all. It doesn't
matter whether the people have homes
or not, and of course they should not
want money, it is of no use only to bank
ers. And besides "wnai win me "uucv
power do with all our homos and proper
ty?" Do just as they do in every mon
archal Government, lease it back to us,
and this country will become a tramp
strewn land of homeless tenants. "What
of iff" That is the purpose of tins sys
tm. It. is a treasonable conspiracy in
stituted to build up an aristocracy of
wealth and destroy the liberties of the
rieoule. He would have us forget
(.hat the banks not only own all the mon
ev hut also have it all, while we owe
them a debt in excess thereof and our
property is security for its payment
Let me illustrate. It A be the people
and B the banks. A borrows from B
ifluO, which is the whole amount of mon
ey in the country, for 10 years at 10 per
cent. At tho end of that time, A has
naid back the f 100 to A in interest and
ol ill owns 1 he tiri nciule. A has val
uable property (wealth) but no money.
He oilers to turn over to 15, property to
settle Hie debt but B says "No, I am a
banker and . deal only m money. a
tries to sell hut the same power that he
owes owns all the money there is to buy
with and no purchaser is found. 13 says
'The law shall tike its course," and A
sees the wealth produced by many years
or hard labor (while 13 was iciie) put up
and sold to satisfy the debt but still there
is no buyer but those who have the mon
ey and to satisfy the debt, they rake in
the fruits of A's 10 yeajs of labor. JNOW
n i, . oinnnv nnd the nronertv of A.
J, nun uiiv. ........--J , ,
And asks, "What will he do wiui
ifr Just as he is doing every day; lease
it or sell it on au ironclad coiit.i-aet for
interest or rent, and A will toil upon the
same until the earth closes over him and
B revels in luxury. This is the differ
ence between the man who has the dol
lars fthe medium of exchange) in his con
trol aud the one who has the "poker
chips." And I again assert that this in
famous financial system was instituted
for no other purpose thou this: To rob
ha tailer and build tin an imperialism of
wealth. No, the people do not worship
the dollars but they understand that
those dollars have the legal debt paying
power and can save their homes and pro
vwl fond and raiment.
What is a dollar? Simply an invention
of organized society, as a medium of ex
change, issued by the authority of that
society (government) and endowed there
by with an exclusive and absolute power
in its domain, a debt paying power. Its
i45iip. rind the control of its volume is the
most important function of a peoples
government, and villainy is a mild term
for the act which placed the power in toe
hands of private corporations.
Do not suppose that the little debt of
$1,970,000,000 is all we owe, reliable re-,
ports state that the debts of our people,
public and private, is $30,000,000,000,
averaire interest at 6 per cent, annual in
terest $1,800,000,000, market value of
our staple productions wool, cotton, pig
iron, railroad bars, wheat, corn and oil,

These are some of the fruits of the sys
