Auditor's Report. In ' the Average City
lo Like Chinese Puzzle to
j ., Moot Persons.
i There is hardly ;a state, city or
. town in this countrythat makos nn
intolligiblc statemenfiof its fiscal op
erations and condition, the Saturday
Evening Post assorts."
Every state, city, 'and town pub
lished once a year a thing it calls
a treasurer's report or an auditor's
report usually a very bulky thing,
containing an interminable maze of
figures. We venture to say offhand
that, as to about two-thirds of theso
reports, the best expert accountant
in the United States could not con
struct from them such a concise and
intelligible showing of income, out
go, indebtedness and cash on hand
as tho New York stock exchange re
quires from every corporation whose
securities it lists. As to three-quarters
of them, we venture to say that
if any such confused, occult state
ment were laid before the directors
of a railroad those directors would
Btand up in righteous indignation
and discharge thp whole accounting
department on the instant.
You know what happens in every
local campaign. Each party claims
( that its administration of the state
or city was vastly more economical
( than the administration of the other
party both parties publish wads of
official figures to prove their claims;
and, except by hiring a corps of ex-
' pert accountants to overhaul the
books and construct a brand new
statement, nobody can tell which
party is right.
i Very properly we demand public
ity for corporation affairs. Why not
t demand intelligible publicity for
public affairs ? Look up the last an-
j nual report of your state, city or
town and see what you can make our
STAMP COST MAN HIS LIFE
French Designer Punished for Com
mlttlng Unwitting Breach of Court
Etiquette In China.
The preparation of a series of
stamp designs on behalf of the Chi
nese government cost one unfortu
nate Frenchman his life, through an
unwitting breach of tho rigid eti
quette of the celestial court, says
London Tit-Bits. This gentleman,
It. A. do Villard, was nn artist oc
cupying a high position in the im
perial Chinese customs service, and
in 1894. was commissioned to execute
tho designs for a series of stamps to
bo issued in commemoration of the
sixtieth birthday of the dowager
On submitting his designs, how
ever, ho incurred severe censure for
having employed the abbreviation
"Imp. Chin. Post" on certain of tho
stamps, in place of tho full inscrip
tion of "Imperial Chineso Post"
Chinese custom not permitting of
any abbreviation of an official title.
More serious still, in official eyes,
was his crime of using imperial
purple in his color Bchemo, the em
ployment of purple being strictly
forbidden in China except by mem
bers of tho imperial court.
For some time tho fate of tho hap
less artist trembled in tho balance,
and it was a question whether or not
he would be beheaded for his uncon
scious insult to tho throne. Ulti
mately he was dispatched upon a for
lorn mission to the heart of Tibot,
amounting practically to a sentence
of death, since nothing more has
bean heard from iiin.
