He was improving nicely, but suffered another attack with his stomach and "head. Monday morning John S. Mitchell, president of the Mitchell Investment Corporation, one of the heavy taxpayers of the county, was here and filed with the :ounty auditor and treasurer a protest against the payment of my bills made prior to 1935, out >f monies appropriated for 193G. The notice of protest, one of :hree similar ones, which have >een filed with the county officers s as follows: "April 5. 1935. To the Auditor and Treasurer of Tlpton County, Indiana. The undersigned landowner ind taxpayer of Tipton county, ndiana hereby enters and makes ts written protest against the layment of any claims filed, al- owed' or pending against th'e ounty of Tlpton or any fund hereof, for the payment of any ndebtednesa existing prior to anuary 1, 1935 and to be pay- ible- out of any appropriation nade for the year 1935, or any noneys received or collected sub- iequent to January 1, 1935. Mitchell Investment Corporation, by John S. Mitchell, President." The council' was here March 29 ind 30 and made an appropria- ion of $45,646.25 for the coun- y highway budget for 1935 and t is said this .budget took into lonsideration something like 99,100 owed the Globe Creosoting Company of Indianapolis for ilacktopping roads in 1934 and ilso about $7,000 in gravel ilaims. Since the meeting of the council the gravel claims are said to have been cut to about 33,000 by payments but nothing has been paid on the *9,000 debt. February 4, 1935, County Commissioner Oscar Vanness filed with the auditor a protest against the payment of any monies to the Slobe Creosoting Company, on :he grounds tBat the gravel road •epair showed an overdraft and that no monies could be paid out ahe 1935 appropriations. In October, 1934 Mr. Mitchell is an individual filed a demand :hat the board of commissioners forthwith institute proceedings to •ecover all allowances made to the -Globe Creosoting Co'mpany which were made on and alter June'27, 1934. As the matter stands the conn- •y officers are "silling ipretty." They have had plenty of" notice aot to pay and 1 it looks as if the Slobe Creosoting Company would have to start proceedings 'to test the validity oTTts bill.

Farley T^IJl resign from the cabinet some time after the present session of congress, it was learned here;after Mr. Farley's arrival from Washington to look Into the political and legislative situation in New York. ! • .. ': Mr.; Farley, who has" been under prolonged criticism fori retaining his cabinet position while continuing to iserve as chairman of the Democratic national, committee and chairman of the Democrat state committee for; • New York, Is understood to have -made up his mind thdt it would be in- •conslsUnt for him to remain as postmaster general, with all the federal patronage which that cabinet officer controls, and at the same time manage the 1936 presidential campaign. As President" Roosevelt earnestly desires ;Mr. Farley to continue as chairman of .the national committee and to manage his campaign for re-election, it is .understood that it has been definitely decided that Mr.! Farley will leave the cabinet. It is believed that the reason for deferring the resignation until after congress; > adjourns is to avoid the impression of resigning under the fire of Huey Long's attacks in the senate. Mr. Farley, who has been jmen- tioned as a possible aspirant for the Democratic 1 nomination.! for governor of New York, came:here primed for action against: . the Tammany Hall leaders who- have been blocking Governor Lehman's reappoftionment plan. As state and ' national man, Mr. Farley is ready to recommend to j Governor Legman SU US FILED CITY OF TIPTQH Action Started to Prevent Erection of an Electric Plant Here.
