The annual county budget .estimate, published this week,, shows a heavy decrease from last year .in'the amount estimated necessary 1 'to' be raised by taxation. The estimate for 1933 is $336,650, whereas the' estimate last year for 1932 was $402,900. The estimate for taxes collected >in 1931 was $428,100. This 'makes • a total decrease in the estimate of two years ago of more than $91,000. There are only a few Increases in the estimate this year as compared with a year ago, The county, road bond is up a half a mill, necessitated by a large amount of bonds' coming due this year. To offset--this. Is a three-tenths of a mill decrease in the bridge bond levy, which drops, In- dollars, from $12,500 to $8,4,00,,. The board has reduced the'.mandatory road levy from 2 % mills to a single mill since 1931. This would not have been possible except lor a. provision in the law making it legal for a county to lower the levy to equal the. combined township and cojunty levy for the year 1927. County and township road levies : that year in Kossuth were exceptionally low, and this fact permitted the cut this year, though in most' counties the mandatory 2% mills must be re- n*has lit half the names, "leads" may fall, information |none-the-less wanted; Norton.

Louis Patterson, kidnaped at Port Dodge Saturday night, broke away from his captor at a point west of Algona Monday, when he found a toy gun in the car while a flat tiro was being- fixed. Patterson was riding with Frank Worrell Jr. and Frank Fox Saturday night when an armed man jumped on the runni.ng board of Patterson's car, and 'after forcing Patterson to drive to a park, made Worrell and Fox get out, and then drove away with Patterson. Worrell and Fox told iFort Bodge police Saturday night, and a search was started. •Patterson later told the police that the bandit made him drive to Algona, robbing him of $90 on the way. Here they turned east and drove to Mason City, thence to Waterloo and Dubuque, and then north along the river. They then .turned around * and came back via Mason City, but just west of Algona a tire went flat. Patterson's further story, as taken from Tuesday's Fort T)odge Messenger, says: . "The fellow got out of the car and sat down on the ground while I fixed the flat. He had his gun out and laid it on the ground. "When I got the tire changed, he got back Jnto the car and started the engine. He left the gun on the ground.- I got into the car, too, and then he saw he had forgotten his gun and got back out to get it. "When .he got out- of the car to get -his gun, I looked around, and saw a toy gun In the car. I picked j It up and ordered him to hold up his j hands. He did and stood there kind of laughing, at me.

Murtagh, democratic county chairman, was gratified Monday to receive a personally autographed picture of Franklin D. Roosevelt, democratic nominee .for president. The picture was sent in answer to a recent letter of congratulations from Mr. Mur-, tagh. Mr. Murtagh has had the picture framed and hung" on a wall in his office. . Mr. Murtagh saw and heard the Governor at the • democratic national convention at San Francisco ,12 years ago.' That was a year before Mr. Roosevelt suffered the attack of infantile par-. alysls from which he is still in process of recovery. Mr. Murtagh describes the Governor as perfect physically except for the paralysis, which afflicts him in the legs. -For .a long time he had to get about on crutches, but now he uses only a' cane.

In addition, the board has cut .the general .levy reduces -the a, -half levy- .to mill,,'. which •the'V- lowest amount In recent years. The general fund next year will total $55,000, according to' the estimate, Instead of $59,463,, which is being .collected this year'on last year's estimate. The poor fund had to be boosted two-tenths of a mill to make a full three-mill levy, the .limit which can be levied under the law. The soldiers' relief levy was also boosted two-tenths of a mill. The levy for the county fair was reduced one- tenth of a mill. No aid Is being given to the fair this year.' There was a levy of two-tenths of a mill this year; the money will be left In the general fund, from which It has •been advanced to the fair in recent years. ' , .

Clarence ("Jack") Phillips, who now hails 'from .'Spencer, boxed "Jolting Joe" Goeders at Emmets- j burg last week Wednesday night, and the 'Spencer News-Herald and the Emmetsburg Reporter differ diametrically on the outcome. The News-Herald says: '^Smashing his way to victory In a great last round attack that had his opponent groggy at the finish, Clarence 'Jack' Phillips of Spencer annexed the light heavyweight championship of Northwest .Iowa Wednesday night at, Emmetsburg when he • defeated 'Jolting Joe' Goeders in an eight-round encounter before a packed house In St. •Mary's gymnasium." | ' On the contrary the Emmetsburg Reporter opens its account of thei battle as follows: "••••.:• . j "Jolting.

It is to be located In the space formerly occupied'by the big switch board. A new room on the southwest corner of the main plant building was built last spring to house the switches and other apparatus, and these have' now been moved to the new location, A new panel has been artled for the new engine, The work of moving the switches involved considerable change In circuits, all'of which was done without Interruption of service, patrons having been unaware that the change was going on. " j A new tunnel west under Hall street was dug to carry cables and wires across the street to distribute uting poles. All wiring to these poles. Is condulted, there can be no danger to passersby from fallen wires, Across Hall street west from the plant a new distributing unit has been erected, and all wiring .has been changed and new units installed. To an electrician the Job on this unit is a.n example of firs.t-.class' workmanship. ' 4' The new engine has been here for some time, under temporary oover at-the Milwaukee siding at the foot of Hall street. As soon as the excavation for }t has been completed and a reinforced concrete base in^ stalled, a factory expert will come to set up the engine and put it in operation. The excavation is being hampered oij tMe north side of the pit "by blocks of concrete that formed the base of an engine in the old days, When steam, and later other engines, stood OH it.

AH ;the men went ,on deck Immediately, and ahey had to make their way in darkness, for the lights had been put out by'the explosion. There was much confusion, and efforts to lower lifeboats were disastrous in many cases, because of the inexperience 'of the men, who had never lowered boats before. Some boats were let down on others below, and still others' were let so fast that they were upset. In other •instances, 'the men, not knowing how else to get the boats loose, cut the -ropes used to lower them to the water, Some of the men jumped overboard into the icold winter water and were almost overcome'' before they, were picked up. Three lifeboats 'were washed onto the rocky .Irish coast and smashed, most, of the men .being drowned.

As a subscriber to your paper, I have read your editorial entitled, "Bank Statements and We the Dear Public." No editorial could be more pat on the prevailing situation. Jt is true that the law requiring periodic publication of bank statements, to which your editorial refers, while having for its Intention the protection of depositors, works out to nothing more than "fair weather" protection It works beautifully when times are normal and prosperous, but in times of economic distress it can -be a disturber of the personal peace of mind of the individual depositor, if he permits it, and a destroyer of general morale and general confidence in the banking structure o£ a community. As your editorial states, a bank is given permission both by state and federal laws, subject to certain restrictions, to borrow to take care of the loan needs of its community. Because a bank may borrow money Is no more vindi- cative of an unstable position' than for a business man, farmer, or Individual to borrow. Unlike the latter a bank caii; ; phly borrow in limits and for deflnlte'.':reasons as fixed by. law. A ^depositor would only be fair to himself and ;tp his community If he would .look at a bank's.;"borrowed mon: ey" item as ;an^eyldence that that bank is makln^'every "effort to care for its customers and the community's banking needs. •I wish'that every, bank deppsi-. tor in';the; state Thigh t • •ha.ve ' the i ' opportunity to • read ; your editorial,'which so clearly-'presents and so accurately analyzes-what 'iin-' fortunately at, least part of the general- ;p^ubllo;has v . perhaps at •^fim^^AJWnW^y^'aiio'wiBd.-'.'-i* 'civet r lt^ unnecessary and-needless 'apprehension/- •••"•' "'•' • ' [Mr-''Warner.;Is a'Well known •former Algonian, having been 1 reared in the family of the late Geo. -E.
