Y. McClin-tock, county superintendent of highways, filed yesterday afternoon with the Board of Supervisors, shows that of the 1,-375.34 miles of road in Monroe county 1,019.71 are improved. Mr. McClintock writes that the high price and scarcity of labor has slowed tip road building materially. I 'art of his report follows: . "Another year completed has farther demonstrated the efficiency of the New York state plan of road improvement, wherein each of the nineteen towns in this, one of fifty-seven counties in the state, has had a lively interest aroused by state aid, supplied to the extent of one-half as, much as each town raises 4y. taxation for road improvement. Work of Much. Local Benefit. "While it was impossible to let contracts for state work in fact, the contracts not completed, which were made in previous years, showed hardly any progress on account of the difficulty of securing sufficient labor in competition with the many great munition factories located here, offering more substantial pay than road work can bear yet the different towns were able by the use of small gangs of local men and teams to construct the ordinary mileage of new road and resurface the worn ones needing it at a cost which was reasonable in Comparison with cost in other years, and in so doing give -a benefit to local taxpayers and at the same time make valuable improvement to many farms by removing unsightly stone piles picked and piled up in previous years: in fact, in one case in the town of Webster it was estimated by competent judges that the value of one farm was actually increased by as much as $2,000 by. reason of the removal of such piles and the placing of them in the subbase of the Shore road. "Each year there is an increasing amount of work for the supervisor and town superintendent in the matter of accounting; the tate Highway Department has demanded more and more detailed statements in the manner in which the town moneys are -pent, and with this it would seem that in many cases these men are not properly paid: the at tention of the town boards should be brought to this matter. Making of Surveys and Maps. "Another branch of the work of this office is the making of surveys and maps for the district-attorney's office. This year eight surveys and maps have been prepared for that office, requiring not only time for making of surveys ana preparation of maps, but for conferences with the attorneys and attendance before grand juries and in court. During the fiscal year ended October 31st, Monroe county obtained $93,221.62 from the state as its share of, the motor- vehicle license funds. Appropriations from this fund totaled $00,000. The coun ty was left with $6,047.24 to be distributed. Of thia fund Mr. McClintock writes: "This money affords the means of making some important improvements, which without it might be deferred a long time, and also puts the responsibpi- ty upon us to demonstrate that it is advantageous to the state to allow the local officials to spend it. The law requires that each pf the pieces of work done by it shall be carefully planned and supervised by the county superintendent, so that it will require considerable additional work by this office, and we shall try to have it done on the same scale of efficiency to which we are accustomed in the county of Monroe." TO DETERMINE JNCOM TAX Internal Revenue Agents Will Give Assistance to Every One. Fity-three officers will start from his headquarters. In Buffalo, on January 1st, andSm January 2d everyone of them will be In the county assigned to him to help people make out their Income-tax returns, .

"The person subject to tax who doesn't make return in the time prescribed is going to regret it. The government will get after all income-tax slackers. "The men In the field will have Income-tax forms for everyone, and persons who expect to call on him need not trouble themselves to write to my office for forma." Dies of Heart Disease.

A New Year's benefit that the Todd Protectograph Company had planned for its factory and office people ajr an nounced yesterday afternoon. Ralph Bar- stow, of the sales department, in a brief Speech to the employees, said that the firm had been -trying to work out some plan of showing its appreciation to its steady employees, some of whom have been with it since the business was established in 1S99. It has been decided, he said, to make a New Year's gift of a straighHife insurance policy for $1,000 to each man and woman who had been on the company's payroll continuously for five years or more, one of $900 for four year's service, and other amounts down to $500 for those in their first year. The premiums on all policies have vbeen paid by, the company, a , Each policy-holder was asked to name wife, mother or other relative as the ben eficiary, to be notified and to receive the amount of the policy in the event of death. The policies, several hundred in number, aggregating more than $300,000 of insurance, were then distributed. All are issued by one company, the Aetna Life Insurance Company, of Hartford, through Edward 15. Nell, manager of its Rochester office. " After the issuance of the policies it was announced that the yearly bonus distribution to employees of more than one year's standing would take place next Monday. This distribution has been a yearly feature in the Todd factory and offices on the day before New Year's for the past twelve years. It is a percentage of the wages paid to each employee daring the previous year. DESERTED AFTER MARRIAGE This Is Charged Against Han Who Enlisted in Canada. George H. Brown, 22 years old, of Toronto, was in police court yesterday on a charge of vagrancy. He will have a hearing on January 4th. In the meantime Isaac Martin, inspector of immigration, will make an investigation. The young man is now accused by the police and others of deserting the Canadian colors. A year or more ago Brown enlisted in the Canadian infantry, and served four months in the20Sth Battalion when he met Miss Agnes Dnnning, of No. 34 Fishot street, Toronto. A few days afterwards the marriage occurred and the couple came to the home of the bride's mother. Mrs. '.Katherine-Hamilton, of No. 231 Plymouth avenue south, this city. 1 Mrs. Hamilton's . married daughter, Mrs. Maty Lund, also lives there. Brown obtained 4 a job in the city. It is said that the wife's relatives became angry with Brown and informed the police that he was wanted by the Canadian military authorities. "See if you cannot arrange that I may rejoin mycompany, and I'll show them I have fighting stock in me," Brown said after his hearing yesterday.

TREASURER'S EOOKS ACCORD His Accounts N"ot Only Balance, but Run In Harmony with Those of Supervisors' OFice, Auditors Find. Review of the Whole System The accounts of County Treasurer Charles J. Brown balance to a cent, according to a report filed with the Board of Supervisors yesterday afternoon bv tbe Jackson At Uson Audit Comnanr which has just made a complete audit of all the county's accounts for the period ot three years ended October 1, K)17 The examination was authorized by the ways ana -ueans Committee of the Board of Supervisors at the request of Mr. Brown. Monroe county in October, 1914, adopted the uniform bookkeeping system originated by the State Comptroller, being the first county in the btate to do so. The Jackson & Wilson Audit Company assisted in installing the new svs-ttm here at that time, and in the report just filed with the supervisors the examiners strongly commend it. Every bill and claim presented iu the three-year period has been checked. The report says in part: "The cash books of the county treasurer were footed and all entries checked to the county treasurer's general ledjrer. A trial balance was drawn as of Sep tember 30, J017, showing the books to be in balance. "We proved out iu its entirety the tax levy for the year 1910, and found that it had been properly distributed upon the various city wards and towns for the full amount as called for in the 191t budget. "The balance due on tax Fales and returned person.-il taxes, as shown by the individual tax sales ibooks, agrees with the amount us called for by the county treasurer's general ledger." Check. Between Offices. In regard to the supervisor's office, where the new bookkeeping system is in operation, and where a controlling account is kept with the county treasurer, the examiners say in their report: "With the installation f the new bookkeeping system under date of October 1, 1914, the supervisors' office has aoted for the county as the comptroller dot?s for the city, so there is au actual check running between the Board of Supervisors and the county treasurer's office from month to month and from day to day. "The details of the various county funds are kept in the Board of Supervisors office, and it is here that a!J claims presented against the county are. approved by the various committees and audited for payment. They are then entered upon the supervisors records and charged to the various county accounts. A detailed distribution is made of the expenditures in each fund, and it is with this information in hand that the county treasurer's report to the state comptroller is made out each year. "There were found on file in the Board of Supervisors office receipted claims, payments of which were properly authorized by the various supervisors' committees and ordered paid by the board. These claims cover all charges made against the various funds for tho three years ended September 30. 1917." Institutions' Records Correct. The examiners visited the penitentiary, almshouse and Iola Sanatorium, and say in relation to their books: "We visited each of these counrv de partments and found their records to be carefully kept in accordance with the crsrem ns started October 30. 1914. and that the unexpended balances, as shown "by the Board of Supervisors' office, were in agreement upon the books of these various institutions." In conclusion the examiners say: "The new county system, as installed by us October 1, 1914. is shown to have been handled very efficiently, and each department has done its utmost to keep its records exactly as they were out lined. The book work has been very neatly done, and we have no hesitancy in saying that the county of Monroe stands at the head of the counties of New York state by having at its disposal statistical Information which can be furnished at once by each and all the departments; but -we feel particularly indebted to the bookkeepers of the supervisors' .office and the deputy county treasurer for their hearty co-operation and suggestions, which has made it possible for onr system to he satisfactorily carried out. Every courtesrv was extended to s by the employees of the various departments, to whom we feel very gratefnl." 1,000 HORSEPOWER SAVED To Be Taken, from Heating System in Novel Way.
