tho conclusion that tho two counties

that Alexandor and l'ulaslu should
mlnglo Into one.
1. AVo lay this down as an incontro
vertible proposition ; Tho limit of taxation
upon tho aiiiflsicd value ol proporty in
Alexander and l'ulakl will not return
sutllclont money to tho troasury of either
county to pay tho nbs-jlutoly nocexary ex
penses of thu county. Tho limit is wo bn.
liovo 7o cents on the $100, unking H.'O
In both counties.
If thn counties wero uidtud, 70
cents taxation on tlio S100 valuation
would return to the tie&'suiy more than
sufficient to pay nil running oxrwnses of
tho united counlifs, r.nd thus save to tlo
taxpayers a'largo nmoiint of monoy and
always hetp mo oroeri upon tho treaMiry
.1. Ther Is 110 necessity for two coun
ties within tho territory a Alexander
aud I'ulaskl. On tho oontrarv, tbo sparse
population of tho couiillfii, tbo nboiiri, of
wealth from their bordors, nnd their iden
tlty of inturests requir that they thould
be unitod under 0110 government.
4. Ssparnted, both will be for yours to
como "running In dobt;" both will havu
bid roads; both Mill bu badly governed.
