Waste of Public filoncy.
This will be the last of our series of editorials, at .least for the
present, on "Waste of Public Money". We have tried to pick out
matters upon which there could be no real difference of opinion,
things about which almost everyone must-agree. One reason for
discontinuing these articles is because of the danger of overdoing
Our subject this week is the office of prosecuting attorney.
The salary of this office is $1550 a year and for the work done is
entirely too large. In the last nix years there has not been a big
criminal case tried in this county and from June 30, 1913 to June
30, 1914 there was not a criminal case of any description tried. It
is true that the prosecutor is the legal advisor of all township and
county officers, but this work is not very heavy. If the office was
appointive we have no hesitancy in saying that any lawyer in Hills
boro would be glad to get the position on an annual retainer of
$600. As an elective office if the salary was cut in two there would
be no trouble in filling it.
We have made no charges of any illegal conduct in any of our
editorials in this series. We believe that public affairs should be
conducted on strict business principles and have simply pointed out
a number of places where money could be saved without interfer
ing with the efficient conduct of our public matetrs. Legislative
action would be necessary to do most of the things mentioned. The
changes suggested would save the people of Highland county about
10,000 each year and the people of Ohio at least one million dollars
each year. And these are only a few of the places where money
could be saved. Do you think it would pay you to give some atten
tion to public matters ?
The successful photographer will make you see yourself as you
hope you look and not as others see you.
The man, who says the most mean things about others, has
more and meaner things said about himself.
The present styles in women's clothes must be on the principle
that there is more evil in imagination than in seeing.
We all of us want economy in the conduct of public business,
except in our .own transactions. .
Why is it that a play or novel is supposed to have ended happily
when the principal characters get married ?
While both are badly handicapped as between the boy who
smokes cigarettes and drinks booze and the one who chews gum
and uses perfumery we are all for the former.
Do your Christmas shopping at once and leave the last day free
for editors who have been so busy urging others to do theirs early
that they have not had time to do any themselves.
