A representative of tbe Journal talked with Commissioner Winn a day or two ago and was pleased to find that he verified the Journal's statements about county affairs. "The county auditor's report to your Board at the commencement of your June term showed $37,307.42 on hand did it not?" asked the Journal man. "That was about the amount," said Mr. Winn. '•And you appropriated at that session one-fourth of the annual expenditure or about $20,000." '•We appropriated as near as I can recollect about $18,500." "What was the amount the Treasurer reported to you on hand September 1st when you met?" "It was about $21,000." ••How much did yeu appropriate at the September term?" "About $19,000, as near as I can recollect." ••Then the treasury is about empty?" "Wei!, there is about $2,000 in it." "You meet again in December and will appropriate about $10,000 more. Where will you get it?'' 'Well, the November taxes will bring- in something 1 ." •The county levy of 20 cents on §19,000,COO valuation makes ?3S,000, or about half what the county has pent. Of this amount §2-1.112.87 was >aicl in in the spring and part is and vill be delinquent and uncollectable. You cannot expect much over §12,000 n November, and with the $2,000 on land, how are you going to meet the appropriation of about $10,000?" •Wo may have to borrow some money until the spring taxes come n." "There is §10,000 of the. £50,000 ionds that, are fine the first of the ear with a thousand or two thousand nterest. How will' you meet that vith the treasury empty at the De- ember term?" We will have to borrow that until tie spring taxes are paid." •Then you meet again in March efore tbe spring taxes are paid and vill appropriate about S19.000 more, low will you meet that?" "We will have to borrow that until ie spring taxes are paid." "You will have to borrow between $30,000 and $35.000 between this and tbe spring lax paying time?/' "Yes, in that neighborhood." "The levy has been increased from 20 cents to SS cents. That will increase the spring revenues from' §24.000 to about $4-5,000?" "I should think so." ••With $35,000 borrowed money to pay back you will have about $10,000 left." -Yes." "And you meet in June and appropriate $19,000 where will you get the other $9,000?" "We will have to borrow it." "And you meet in September and not known at the time the levy wa fixed that the gravel roads would b bought or even the purchase petitionei for?" This last question might have been asked, and the answer would be. tha it was the intention to use half of th surplus with the proceeds of the 20 cent levy for this year and half with a 20 cent levy /or next year to keep from the tax-payers a knowledge of the effects of the new tax law unti after tbe election. Boiled down, there are six sessions of the Commissioners between this date and the spring tax paying time in 1894, a year from nest spring. At the rate of county expenditure, $85,000 annually, the commissioners will appropriate this' amount and a half more, as there are four sessions a year. This means $127,500. Added to this there is $10,000 of the §50,000 due this winter, and §10.000 next winter with two years interest on the whole amount, makes a total of about $15Q,000. To meet this there is $2,000 in tbe treasury, §12,000 due in November and by a levy of 38 cents on the $19,000.000 valuation $70,000 is expected to be realized next spring and fall. This makes $S4-,000 income to meet $150.000 of indebtedness. It will be seen that the estimate of $60.000 indebtedness at the spring tax paying time 189-1 is a low estimate. This is tbe program and this the situation prepared by the Democratic ring for ihe taxpayers and the next Board of Commissioners. It may be frankly admitted here that; many Republicans question the advisability of trying to elect Republican comidissioners to meet j such ;t situation as this but it is their duty to the people to try for election and to make the best of the situation and by careful management to make the burden as light as possible. This is the situation created to conceal the increase under the new tax law. It was created at the instigation of a Cass county ring, and it is to be regreted that The new Board of Commissioners have fallen under Us influence. It must be admitted by every intelligent citizen that the necessity of carrying this county and State for Democracy has been presented too strongly to our Democratic Commissioners. The Journal v/ill be accused of misrepresentation by the Pharos, but not one of the statements will be disproved, acd as in the statements of the Jour. ua! in county matters two years ago, every statement herein made will be generally admitted as correct by Democrats after the election. The best to be done now, is to exercise tha utmost economy in county affairs and to elect a legislature that RAILROAD UUMBU58S. will modify the enormities of the present tax law. If the large increase paid to the State can be lessened, the burdens of county taxation will not be felt in the coming years when the taxpayers must make up for the present.

Texas Siftings: The car tracer is a man employed by a railroad company to hunt up lost freight cars. He travels a great deal, but the beauties of the country through which he passes are lost to him, for he has no eye except for freight cars. If he takes a little snack in a railroad res- trurant, his eve is turned to the window constantly, especially when a freight train goes rumbling by. He has been known to leave coffee half drank, rush out and raount the caboose with an air of triumph, proclaiming that he had recognized the initials and number for which be was searching. Studying freight cars as he does •enders him oblivious to the beauty of .he most elaborate Pullman or Wagner jalace car, and be looks upon the alest improved vestibule limited with supreme indifference. In fact, he dreams ot nothing but lost freight :ars. strayed or stolen, and initials and numbers dance before his sleeping vision'continually. Conductor C. R.
