Heretofore the proceedings have listed only the name of the person to whom check was made out, cue- tomarlly the grocer, other dealer, or landlord.** Now 1 ' the'- warrant '| g -Hated, and directly under it la an Itemized account of the person or persons benefltted. The board of supervisors does not by this publicity Intend to. cast reflections upon any persons worthy of aid. The county willingly cares for all such cases. There has been in the past, however,'a-few cases where persons not needing aid have applied for .It simply out of a "grabbing" instinct., .JUp to the present such cases have been protected from publicity. The supervisors, 'in ordering publication by name and Item, believe that .the taxpayers, who must make up a deficit of more than $5,000 In the poor fund, are entitled to. know- on whom the benefit falls. It is, also believed that some persons who do not need aid will get off the list if publicity in the proceedings is certain.
