He Considered la Controversy
Over Situation mi the
Speaking of the recent developments in
the discussion of county Unances County
Commissioner Bruiting said:
"One Important point has been over
looked In the discussion that is the in
creased property valuation, whlh, with ths
lax levy unchanged, must necessarily pro
dues a good deal more revenue each year.
During the last year we have, I think,
accomplished all that could have been ex
pected in the way of retrenchment and
rutting dawn the Indebtedness. Half-way
meaaurea will not, though, solve I ho prob
lem that Douglas county is facing. The
condition was known long ago and is really
not as acute now as It has been many
times before. That it must be remedied
as soon as possible goes without saying,
but just how Is the question. Personally
1 feel It will be solved without difficulty."
Another man connected with county
affairs said on the same subject:
"The present agitation, based on the facts
set forth in The He concerning the con
dition of the county Cunda, will serve a good
purpose. The condition of affairs Is not
gult as bad as it has been painted by
some, let me amy. If It becomes abso
lutely necessary, there la such a thing
known as dating bills ahead; and If the
county board should find Itself in that po
sition where contractors tor supplies would
not make further deliveries without being
"shown," why, a warrant dated July Z, for
Instance, or any date after the levy la to
be made, probably would bring the needed
Increase In Everything-.
Still unuthtr phase of the administration
of county nuances was thus outlined by a
man who Is entirely familiar with the
county system of making contracts and
keeping the books:
"Klther Dun's or Rradstreet's agency
will tel you that, compared with ten years
ago, the coat of all supplies, especially
foodstuffs, has Increased in that time at
least 164 per cent. Thus, if the county
administration ten years ago cost lUJO.OuO It
would today cost $135,000, without allowing
anything at all for the natural growth in
expenditures as population increases or for
the many udded expenses saddled onto the
county by the legislature, such as the
Juvenile court. The county commissioners
have really made a very creditable showing
In the last year, all things considered.
And another saving this winter will be In
the use of steam coal for heating the court
house and Jail. Ail the little things count,
Ware Has Word to Add.
John D. Ware again tackles the subject
In the following interview:
"My attention has been called to an
article appearing in The Evening Bee of
November 14. In which Mr. Kink, the
county treasurer, takea the position that
the point which I make against his office
Is not well taken, for the reason the
county treasurer Is simply a receiving and
disbursing officer, who has-nothing to do
with passing upon the correctness of ac
counts against ins county ana has no
hanl in auditing the same and cannot
pass or be asked to pass upon the legality
of the warrants which are Ibmma.1 in
. . u u o
"This may be so, but the statute makes
each fund received from each current
year"s levy a separate fund to pay tho
curent expenses of that year, and re
quires that 'each warrant shall "specify
ine amount levied and appropriated to
the fund upon which it Is drawn, and the
amount already expended of such funds.'
If this has not been done. Mr. Fluk would
have no legal right to pay out money on
any of the warrants until the same did
appear upon the back of the warrants.
If this has been done In the case of the
warrants issued, then Mr. Fink can very
readily ascertain whether there is any
money lu the fund created by the levy
of 1904, and If there Is no money In said
fund he has no legal right to pay said
warrants out of the money In the fund for
19t6, not. at least, until all the claims for
1ju have been allowed and paid.
"If the county treasurer under the law
goes out In the open market and buys up
outstanding warrants against his county,
he is In no better position than any private
individual who may buy said warrants;
and If said warrants have been Illegally
Issued for an Illegal debt, neither the
county or any other purchaser can re
cover on said warrants as against the
county If the same Is resisted.
"I do not care to discuss this matter In
the papers, for it may come up in a dif
ferent form for dtscusslcn, and if t does
the newspapers will then get a chance to
write It up."
t)K STEP TOWARD RETRENCHMENT
Resolatleas to Bay Oonntr Patients'
A step toward the new policy of re
trenchment on county expenses was taken
Saturday morning by the Board of County
Commissioners. A resolution was olfared
to buy for the county hospital twenty-five
blankets at 13.10 each and twenty-five at
12.00 each. At a committee meeting on
Friday the purchase had been agreed to.
it seems, but when the matter came Up
In the board meeting Chairman Kennard
raised the question of funds not being
available. Commissioners Brunlng and
Tralnor thereupon voted no and the reso
lution was lost.
Something like a doxen bids were received
for the construction of a bridge over the
Papplo creek, near the Oakdale school
bouse. The bids ranged In price from 14.030
to $5,000 or over snd the board referred
them for tabulation. It has not been
finally decided to erect this bridge and the
main object in advertising fur bids was
to enable the commissioners to get an
idea of what the bridge would cost.
Taxes on the terminal grounds of the
Great Western railroad were ordered can
celled on an opinion from the county at
torney that to col'ect the amount would
constitute double taxation
MONEY PAID FIRST OF MONTH
Wage of Registrars and Special
Police for Election Will
Come In Dae Time.
Parties serving as registrars and special
police at the late election will get their
money by the first of the month. The city
comptroller has the money and the city
clerk has made up the pay roll, so every
thing Is done that has to be done. Here
tofore tt has been customary for the reg.
tstrars to have to wait for the new levy
before getting their pay, but this year,
owing to conditions, they get In earlier.
It Is the hope of the city clerk that this
notice will suffice to pacify the parties and
that they will not bother hint about the
matter any mora.
ROUT DEFINES HIS POSITION
8oTsreign Commisder Firon Unions and
Wnu No . ixup with Fr.ntert,
CANNOT ABROG JE CONTRACTS, THOUGH
Will Do All He ton, He. Says, to
Obviate Trouble Between
Woodmen and the
The officials of the Woodmen of the
World and of the Typographical union
soon will have another conference regard
ing the demand made by the union that
the order discontinue having any of its
printing done at nonunion shops. L'nless
the Woodmen of the World accede to the
demand a request will be sent out for all
union printers to withdraw from the order.
In discussing the matter Sovereign Com
mander Root had this to say:
"There is nothing new In the situation.
We expect shortly to have another confer
ence with the printers and I think every
thing will come out watlsfdctory. The
Woodmen of the World has nothing to do
with the printing liibofar as It goes to a
union or a nonunion shop. We let, out
contracts for printing to the lowest bidder.
The firm holding the contract lets the work
to other Arms. In some Instances the work
la dune by union shops and In other In
stances by nonunion shops. Most of It, I
understand. Is done In Chicago.
Can Do Kothlng.
"Now. what can we do? Absolutely noth
ing, except to use our good offices to get
the contractor to let the work to union
arms. If b refuses w can't take tb
work away from him. He has a bond to
do the work and It It Is done right I can't
see where we can Interfere as to where he
gets It printed. Our contract with the firm
says nothing about union or nonunion
"Personally I favor the unions, and they
have my sympathy, but when It comes to
getting the work done at union shops we
are tied up. I shall ask our contractor to
take back the union printers he let out,
but that Is as far as I can go. It may be
that lomo of the printers will leave the
order, and If they do we can't help It. I
am friendly with the unions and friendly
with our contractors, and so far no feel
ing has developed, and 1 think everything
will be settled satisfactorily without 111
Letter to Lodges.
This letter has been mailed to member
of subordinate lodges by Mr. Root:
