The above is a good likeness of S. L. Dodds, of this
city, who carried off the honors of the Inter-State Associa
tion's Third Southern Handicap held at Nashville, Tenn.,
May 6th. Mr. Dodds score was 100-94, winning out
against 130 of the world's best shooters. The trophy
tendered him by the association is a beautiful medal
studded with 21 diamonds. Of course Hickmanitcs are
delighted with the victory won by Mr. Dodds.
And, by the way, Hickman is virtually entitled to the
honor of the Grand AmcricanfHandicap Championship,
which belongs to Guy Ward, of near here, and was won
by him at Indianapolis, June 19th, 1906. Score 150-144.
Auditor Alter Sheriffs,
Investigation of the accounts of
every Sheriff in Kentucky for the
last liftren years has been begun by
Frank P. James, State Audifor, and
he expects to collect considerable
money from those officials who have
been delinquent in that they have
not turned into the State treasury
all that the State should have re
ceived The State can keep easy
trace of the amount due on taxes by
each Sheriff, but there are said to
be many other was by which the
Sheriffs can defraud the State, and
the Auditor is going after these.
He is also going after those who
owe the State but who were not guil
ty of anything more than careless
ness. Mr James said that one way the
Sheriffs could defraud the State was
by getting the Fiscal court to grant
exonerations for money that had not
been collected and then make the
collection. For instance, a Sheriff
reports to the Fiscal court that he
failed to collect 81,000 on poll tax.
He is exonerated on this item, but
later some of the men of the county
pay their poll taxes cr the Sheriff
collects many. That money should
go to the State, but in some instances
which have been discovered it did
not go to the State. Omitted prop
erty, which has been left off the As
sessor's books, is also a source of
fraud on the State. The property
may not be assessed and the Sheriff
may collect taxes without making
any report which would show the
collections having been made.
