If you approve of Roosevelt’s
policies and wish them continued,
then support William H. Taft
and James S. Sherman.
And now it brings a church
and its pastor into politics. If
this isn't the apotheosis of des

in the fall election. Every voter
should familiarize himself with
these proposed amendments so
that he can vote intelligently
concerning them. They should
both be carried.

it was at the recent primary. Not

Mr. Lord is quite mistaken.
The editor ot this paper and
the writer of the article
which he so laboriously
tries to answer lias never been
connected with any contracting
company. What Mr. Lord's re
lations may be with the com
pany or the individual lie goes
so far out of his way to assault,
is a matter of indifference to
this paper. In the meantime
the democratic candidates for
supervisors would better call
Lord off, for a worse indictment
of democratic rule will not ap
pear during this campaign than
“tax.payer” gave in the demo
cratic organ last week.
The Tribune speaking of it
self alone wishes to declare its
belief in the principle of county
option. Some are opposed to it
fearing it would result in clos
ing the saloon's. Are you op.
posed to the rule ot the people
[because they may not rule your
way? Many were disappointed
when Mr. McKinley defeated
Mr. Bryan, but would they op.
pose the right ot suffrage be

as they wished? The people ol
Richardson county have the
right to rule Richardson county

taken away from them at the

is such a striking truth that it
appeals to the judgment of
every voter. What a recommen

A shooting scrape took place at the
Florence hotel about three o’clock
Saturday morning and the parties con
cerned were not known to anv. One
of the Falls City ball boys was sleeping
next room to the one where the shot
was fired and when he heard some
loud talking and threats made he ran
to the door thinking muybe some of
their boys were there and just as he
got to the door the shot was tired from
the revolver but the shot was wild.
The man made his get away but upon
investigation it was found that the
bullet had passed through a pillow and
set the feathers on fire.
WHAT ARE THE FACTS?
In the last issue ot one of our
local papers there appeared an
article headed “Tacpayer Ans
wers.” In the previous issue
of The Tribune the assertion
was made that the amount of
state taxes which will be paid
by Eicnardson county in 1908 is
less than the amount paid in
1907 and that the county taxes
for 1908 will be more than the
county taxes for 1907.
This assertion was made in
answer to a democratic howl
about taxes and calls attention
to the tact that a republican
state equalization board has
reduced the state taxes in this
county and a local democratic
board has raised the county
What are the facts'/ We will
take the figures just as they are
given by Taxpayer himself and
we j-ubmit that the statement of
The Tribune is proven by Mr.
Taxpayer’s own figures. Mr.
Taxpayer gives the state levy
for 1907 as being $45,854.54 and
for 19os as $44,076.05. These
very figures show the state taxes
to be paid by Richardson coun
ty in 1908 to be $1,778.49 less
than was paid in 1907.
Now what about the county
taxes for 1907 anti 1908? Mr.
Taxpayers figures show the
county taxes for 1907 to haye
been 845,840.54 and for 1908
they are $49.5565.16. These fig
ures show that the tax payers
will pay $3,524.62 more county
taxes in 1908 than they paid in
1907. We have not found it
necessary to quote any other
figures than those furnished by
Taxpayer himself: and we sub
mit to our readers that ihe as
sertion of The Tribune concern
ing the state and county taxes
for 1907 and 1908 is proven to
