Waste of Public Money.
Probably the greatest waste of public money in every county
is through the present system of conducting business through three
County Commissioners. Most of the county's money is spent by
the commissioners. Each commissioner in Highland county re
ceives a salary of $1121 per year, a total of $3361. What do the
people get for this money and upon what basis is the county money
The election of the County Commissioners is usually made a
sectional matter. Each section of the county wants elected a
County Commissioner who lives in that section, hoping that if this
is done their section will secure special benefits. After election
the county is divided into three sections, each commissioner being
given the section in which he lives to look after and each one try
ing to see how much he can get done for his section.
The commissioners meet regularly twice each month, each
meeting usually lasting two days. At these meetings the bills
against the county are examined. If the bills are 0 K'd by the
official who purchased the goods, they are allowed. The commis
sioners do not know whether the goods have been delivered or
whether the price charged is reasonable. At these meetings con
tracts are also let for bridge, road and l'epair work. We have no
hesitancy in saying that often bills of this kind are paid without
the commissioners seeing how the work has been done.
The position of county commissioner is usually a side issue
with the man that holds it. He generally has some other business
to which he devotes most of his time and which he does not neg
Ject to look after the county business. The average county com
missioner does not devote over four days a month to his duties as
county commissioner. Under these conditions it is impossible for
him to know all that is being done.
In our opinion it would be much better to have just one county
commissioner and require him to be on the job all the time; not
allow him to have any other business; have a commissioner for the
entire county and not a man representing some section. It would
be easy to get a man for this position at a salary of from S1500 to
$1800 a year. He would soon understand and know the county
business. He would do the buying of all supplies for the county.
In this way he would know whether goods were secured and would
be posted on prices and values. No work of any kind would be
done that he had not supervised. With a saving of at least $1500
in salary there would be increased efficiency and the amount of
money saved in this way can not be estimated.
We believe that Highland county in recent years has been for
tunate in having better county commissioners than most counties;
that they have been honest and done their best under the condi
tions. But the system is wrong and as long as it is continued it
"will result in a great deal of money being wasted each year.
Never before has it seemed so appropriate and fitting that as
a nation we should have a day of Thanksgiving as this year.
While other nations are engaged in the most terrible war in the
history of the world; while Europe is one mighty battlefield; while
these great nations are pouring out their best blood that they may
not be crushed and destroyed; while many of the people of these
nations have seen their homes destroyed, their lands devastated,
we are at peace with all the world. Our harvest was most bounti
ful. As a people we are prosperous and happy. We seem indeed
to be a favored nation, a favored people.
While our hearts are' filled with sympathy and pity for the suf
fering and stricken people of other nations, still it is well that we
should give grateful thanks that our land and our people have been
spared the horrors of war.
Today has been set aside by the President as the day on which
we as a people should cease our usual tasks and turn our thoughts
. i i 1 l -r i '
to tne Diessings we nave receivea ana are enjoying. L.et us do
this reverently and let us pray that we may continue to live at
peace with all men, striving to merit our blessings. Let us put
envy, malice, hatred and bitterness from our hearts and enthrone
honesty, fairness, charity, mercy and love.

The Georgetown News-Democrat was selected as one of the 52

modestly claimed that it was not only "among the best" but the
