Last MsV
CriUcisin Ray C Lang-ford ot Lincoln
county frr harlnc referred to the eoiiec
tloa of personal taxes aa bluff." County
Treasurer w. a. Ire of Douglas countjj
announced to the convention ot county
treasurers yesterday mornlni that he In
tended to collect delinquent personal
taxes and there would be no bluff about
"I was grieved to have such a state-
ment ft out in my oalllwick." said Mr.
rr- "I tot pretty hot under the collar.
' If you fellows are fotnf to Indulge In
such loose talk. I want you to meet in
Lincoln next year; I don't want you to
coma back here. .
-Now, m tell you what Tin gains to
do about personal taxes. We v five
col lectors, and I'm going to send those
collectors out to talk to the delinquent!
In a gentlemanly way. The collector
must bring me either the money or some
sort of a statement from the individual.
I'll have these collectors work. a couple
of weeks, and then I'll take hold of the
matter myself. l'U serve notice on the
delinquent that unless he pays his taxes
by a certain dsy, I will Issue a distress
warrant on that day. And I positively
will Issue the warrant on that day and
send the sheriff to grab whatever he can
get his hands on."
'The reporters misconstrued what I
said . yesterday." said Mr. Langford.
"When I said "bluff I referred only to
cases where the delinquent has got out
af the state."
"Oh. well. If that's the ease." rejoined
Mr. Urn, Til take back part of what I
eald and will Invite you to meet In
Oman again. " '
Taaea Arc Certain.
President Hevelooe here assured the
newspaper men that "there Is nothing
surer tn earth than the collection ot
taxes." R. B. Hlrschman of Cedar county
wanted a press committee appointed to
seek to remedy the mischief caused by
the publication of yesterday's delibera
tions, but the convention decided this
was unnecessary. Mr. Hlrschman was
satisfied, however, when the reporters
present promised him to publish Mr.
Langford's explanation. . -
"The Commlssloner'a Viewpoint," was
Mr. Urn's set subject. The county mort
gages the future by tardy assessment,
levy and collection of taxes, he said,
with the result that the county la al
ways hard up, the business of one ad
ministration runs over into the next and
the county commissioner is the object
of 'kicks" from one end ot the county
to the other. Mr. Lre said tha assess
ment should be made In September pre
ceding tha January In which the per
sonnel of the county board changes; the
county equalisation board should meet
In November; the estate equalisation
board In Iiecember: the levy should be
made In January and taxes should be
paid In April and May. It Is up to the
treasurers, he said, to go before the leg
islature sad get a law paired making
such prevision.

death; by drowning In the Missouri river
yesterday afternoon when he attempted
to cross to the Iowa side la his auto on
the Ice near Florence, where the river Is
completely frosen over.
Mr. Frrdrlckson had advanced from
the Nebraska shore about twenty teet
when the front wheels of his csr struck
an sir hole. Before he could reverse his
engine and back away from the danger
ous spot the Ice about him began to
crumple and In an Instant the car was
filled with water. Mr. Fredrickson barely
saved himself by making a desperate leap
from the sinking car at the last Instant.
Fortunately the water was shallow at
the place where the csr sunk and with
the aid of a pair of horses borrowed from
a nearby farm Mr. Fredrickson was able
to haul his car back to land.
