The report of the state auditor for the yeor 1000 shows many interesting things concerning the iinnneiul stand ing of the county which are not gen erally known to the taxpayers. The report shown, among other things, that up to July 1, 11)00, Webster coun ty owed the state in back taxes 832, 022.07. distributed as follows: 1885 8 3013.15 1880 2085.02 1887 1320.50 1888 800.83 1880 502.-H1 1890 3113.47 1801 720.13 1892 112.47 1803 550.10 1804 133.88 1895 28 I. SO 1890 183.01 1807 98.30 1808 72.07 1800 08.33 1000..' 80.20 1901 80.15 1902 53.10 1903 52.22 1901...... 1505.73 1905 15703.25 Total 832022.07 Of the S15,703.25 shown to be delin quent in 1905 the greater part has been collected and turned into the state treasury, while of the balance for the years 1904 and 1905 a large share is that owed by the iturlingtou railroad. Of course, most taxpayers will under stand that this money is not actually owed by the county, and will not be paid until it is collected from the de linquent taxpayers. All delinquent taxes owji'g to thestate prior to 1885 have been canceled and the county is under no obligation to pay them. The total delinquent taxes owed by the various counties to the state is 82,574,041.31. Webster county has oustanding $30, 000 of refunding bonds, due in 1911, Injuring 4 per cent interest, which are 7ield by the permanent school fund of of the state. The total railway mileage in Web ster county is 00.07, and the assessed valuation in for 1000 was 8504,755. The total sleeping car mileage in' this county is 24.50, on which the Pull man company paid 8201.47 in 1900. The report also shows that Webster county owed the state on November 30 last 83337.47 for care of insane. As an illustration of how the county has grown since its organization, the assessed valuation of the county in 1871 was 88.999; in 1900 it was 82.205, 414. Next Monday Nlftht. Who? Why, Camp, at the opera house. Chas. T. Schenck, Monroe, In: "We contracted with the Midland Kureau of l)cs Moines, la., for the Hon. J. (1. Camp, who lectured before a splendid audience in this place on November 20, and I can both truthfully and unhesi tatingly say it was one of the most magnificent lectures to which I have ever listened, and I have heard Wend ling, Ounsaulus, Dixon, ( raves, llur dette, Con well and Mclntyre. We never had a man on our lecture ctmr.se have shut out the saloons, and now it who gave such universal satisfaction s proposed to make prohibition state as did Camp, and I speak this advised- wide. So far as this county is con ly, for I make it a business to inquire J corned, we believe the people should into the impression every number has ),e given the opportunity of saying left. I want to see J. ('.. Camp with j whether or not they want saloons, your bureau next year, for we most with all the evils that go with them, certainly want him back next year for j if the majority of the people are in our regular course. He merits every favor of trying to worry along with word of commendation I have said in (ut saloons, we believe they should reference to his ability as a wise thinker and able orator." Public Sale.

There is a bill before the legislature, which is being strongly urged for adoption, irivinir the various counties of the state the right to vote upon the question of license or no license by counties. In Tennessee, Arkansas, Ucorghi and the Caroliuas this method of controlling the liquor trnflic has been given a fair trial and is rapidly growing in popular favor. In Tennes see seventy of the ninety-six countien imvu the right to suv so. (luide Hook and Iuavale have driven out the booze joints and no one will have the hardi hood to claim that either town has suffered. If the liquor trallic was ' completely driven from the county there would be. more money spent for dry goods, clothing ami groceries. i The men wlio are now engaged In the 1 liquor business are successful business men, and they could with equal suc cess engage in some more honorable j calling.

Considering that most of the members of the hand were "green" when llrst taken in hand by Prof. Snapp, they have made re markable progress. Prof. Snapp cer tainly is a thorough musician and an able band director. Everybody should come down town .Monday evening pre pared to encourage the boys in every way and overlook any little breaks they may make. "Oh, listen to the band!" T Cure a Cold ! Ote Day.

Plans Belnft Laid for a Vlftoraus Cam paign ftr the Bonds. At the regular meeting tif the Com' merclal club Tuesday evening the question of building a new court house again formed the principal topic for discussion. Enough of the petitions have, been turned in and heard from to indicate that probably 800 voters have signed the request to the county commission ers to submit the proposition to a vote. The question as to when the election shall be held occupied the greater part of the discussion. Some favored the calling of a special election, while others contended that it would be the better policy to wait until the election next fall, thereby avoiding the expense tif a special election. It was also argued that there would be a much larger vote east at the general election than could possibly be gotten out at a special election, thus securing a more nearly accurate expression of tho will of the. people. Another good argument in favor tif waiting until the November election is that a favorable decision in the railroad tax case is hoped for before that time, thus giving the county ump'o money to pay all outstanding e'aims that are due and leave a good surplus. This would have a tendency to make the taxpayers look at the matter in a more favorable light. Waiting until the general election would also irive the supporters of the plan a better opportunity to Impress upon the citizens of Cowles, lllue Hill and elsewhere that this is not a selfish movent on the part of Itcd Cloud, but Is designed for the good and wel fare of the whole county.
