THE I0LJLPA1LY BE6I3TEB. MQiSJ^AT EYBXDTC^ ypTEMBEB 8, ISOS. lb«iit (Jommlssfoiier. ' Voters of tbe Second and Third cotaiMsifoher^^l^rlcts^Ul be called upon^at this election to choose a member of the board of county com- mlsBioners. n For two yeans tbe. affairs of the county ibffve been in the hands oi a Democratic board—but one Republican. Mr. T. J. Anderson being on the board and he. Was never consulted in important matters and •was always outvoted on every question where he protested against the. action of the board—a^d it is the due of the voters of these two districts to know bow the affairs of the county have been conducted for the • past two years. The expenses of the county in the past two years have been greater that ever before sand are constantly growing. As showing bow they have grown and 'liow they have In^ creased the following figures will . be read with interest. 1900 ?24.23f.40 \ 1901 22.G23.3C i 1902 .. .' 36,694.92 / 1903 46,386.72 1904 40.792,05 1903 47,111.02 1906' 40,648.64 1907 •. r .8 .r >S9.6»j^ 1908 (for nine months). 44.960.00 This is at the rate of $4,999.55 a niunth and if continued will make the expenditures for the year 1903,) —the second under a Democratic administration—of $59,958.65. the greatest in the .history of the county. Under Republican administration the iieaviest items of cost were the court expenses. But for the past two years the court costs have been verj- greatly decreased owing to an absence of litigation. This is duo not only to the decrease of criminal business but to the falling off in civil cases. As an Instance of this decrease the books Show that the jury expenses for 1907 and 1908 were $6,160.90. while the expenses during the previous two years were $10,503.15. Yet in spite of this reduction the board spent $103,549.69 In 1907 and 1908 (nine months of 1908 alone counted) while during the time the court expenses were the heaviest the Republican board only spent $87,759.66, being for the two complete years of 1905 and 1906. When the present Democratic board took office they found in the general jevenue fund sufiSclent money to carry on the business of the county. " This money has been spent and if all the warrants now out and all the money appropriated by the •board wouH b "e called for tomorrow the treasurer would bave to stamp warrants "Not Paid for Want of Funds" for the first time in the history of the county. The only fund over which the commissioners bave any discretion as to the use of the money Is the General- Revenue fund. From this fund the ordinary running expenses of the county Is paid. In the general revenue fund the amount of money on hand on October 1 for the past eight years was as follows: , 1900 $ 9,888.00 1901 12,565.00 1902 8.519.00 1903 16,054.00 1904 11,279.00 1905 14,426.00 1906 '. , 12.615.00 1907 11,575.00 1908 3,133.25 At the October uiecting of th'j board there was appropriated ami warrants drawn for $3,219.14 and when they are presented during the month of October the General Revenue fund will be overdrawn $75.89. And at the same meeting the board laid over more than $900 more of bills which will- to be allowed at the .November meeting of the board.. To have allowed them at the'October meeting would have made the treasurer short of money before election. Yet each year the mohey raised by taxation for the General Revenue fund has constantly grown. The tax permits a county to raise two per cent more monoy for eaoh fund than M'as done In 1907. The comnii.ssioii- ers have levied a tax which will permit them to raise the limit of the law so that in 1909 the county will pay two per cent moii? in ta.Kes for the general expenses of the county than they did ini 190S. unless a'Re­ publican board! brings bark that economy of management which enabled them to keep money In the general revenue fund In spite of heavier expenses than thcv present \)oard has bad to meet. During the two ye &rs of Democratic administration the board levied the full limit of the la^ for the general revenue fund. Prom 191)0 to 1906 under Republican administration the limit of 'the law was levied in only two of thiese years. Mr. Paul Klein, present Democratic member of the board from this district and a candidate for Ve•election, has sworn that during the year 1907 he served afi average of two weeks' out of every In the I>u6iaes8 of the county and that he traveled' ?83 "aolles: on bnslness loT tb»/hmif.

Nov. 1.—Chairman Dolley >f the Kepublican state committee, has issued the following statement. "The Democrats are flooding the stale today with false statements of eviiy kind and nature that have not the sli^hti-st foundation In fact, and the voters of Kansas ought not to be misled by these vicious campaign lies, Th» work of the Republican party for the past live years certainly should not be discredited by a lot of false- toods jcaltered broadcast in the last memeut in the way of anonymous circulars throughout the state. .-Jntl by{ men who themselves may be honest, j but who have no other foundation but these false stories to base their statements- on. "The story tbat_ tlie railroads and corporations have furnished money to tl'e Republican state committee forj (he campaign of 190S is false and un-j' true, every word of it. Not a single dl>llar has been received by this committee from any corporation in Kansas or out of Kansas. I am prepared' to make this statement under oath and exhibit the facts. Some Democratic Methods. "The Democratic committee had no^ records nor issues of its own tO! mak» this campaign, and has resorted to attacking the personal character of • tie prominent Republicans of! and our nominees by misrepresenting the facts. "This is a sample of the Democratic *party's campaign: In prohibition' i communitie.s and nmon.s: the prohibl- ! tion people they are telling that Botkin is a prohibition man, was n candidate for governor on the prohibition ticket and has preached prohibition I from the pulpit all hi.=; life. Among! J the whisky element they are assuring} them that Botkin will not bother the j whisky jnterests. and cite the fact; that he has not committed himself on \ this question in this campaign. The New Tax Law. "The new tax law simply provides: for the equal assessment of .iM prOT>-| erty in Kansas at its actual value. If? there is anything wrong with this law it much be in its administration. The administration of the law is through the appointment by the governor of a state tax commission and by the appointment of a county assessor by the county commissioners in each county. The Republican party has pledged itself in its party platform to makej the county assessors and sitate t.ix commission elective by the people. Mr. Stubbs introduced a bill at tl;o special session of the legislature providing for the election of the county assessors and the state tax commission which failed of passage on account of the limited time. "We have refrained In this campaign from issuing any false statements, or in any way misrepresenting the facts, and have Instructed all our county committees to conduct the same kind of campaign, which I am pleased to say tbey have done. I do; not believe that the voters of Kansas will approve of the methods of the Detnocfatlc committee in an attempt to secure their votes under false pro- tenses."
