That Mandamus.
Tlie case of V. W. Sevmour against
the board of county commissioners in tlie
supreme court for a mandamus to com
pel tlie county board to include in their
estimate and levy a sum sufficient to pay
the allowed claims held by tlie plaintiff
against the latter resulted in the man
damus being issued. The showing was
made by the county attorney that some
of said claims liad beep settled by the
county board by their order to cancel in
order to make good the shortage of ex-'
officials as found by the expert account
ant, but a majority of tlie judges ignored
such showing-. Justices Maxwell and
Post holding that tlie mandamus should
issue and Justice Norval dissenting. It
would seem by this ruling of the court
that a dangerous precedent had been es
tablished for it virtually holds that not
only warrants but claims allowed in ex
cess of the Jevy and in excass of the
statutes are negotiable paper and tliat
the county has no defence, but must pay
just what the commissioners allowed.
In view of this fact it is the duty of
every tax payer to carefully read the
proceedings of the board of commission
ers and should any bill he allowed which
they know is unjust or exorbitant an
appeal should be taken as provided by
the statute. Any person lias the right
to take such appeal within ten days after
any bill has been allowed and that is the
only remedy which the tax payers have
under tho ruling of tlie supreme court.
In view of the decision of the Boyd
case there is an excellent opportunity
for the present congress to immortalize
itself by the passage of laws goverping
the naturalization of foreigners which
will be so strong that there will be no
way to avoid compliance therewith, and
so clear that there will bo no possible
chance for a repetition of such a case.
When citizenship can be acquired as eas
ily as is possible under our present laws
it seems that tlie provisions ought to be
complied witi in every particular. If it
were not so easy to become a citizen it is
more than likely that more care would
be used.
It is expected that Gov. Boyd's meat
ax will rapidly remove the official heads
of the appointive officers of the state.
Of course Oil Inspector Cams will be one
of fhe first to go so that Rosewater's
cousin, Louis, may be re-iustated.
