FROM A TAX.PAtER.
lu Comast pr""&*r Ove.--hcy.#
NEWt~r. for mA FCpb.
Digraceful as It ie to the administra
tion of the public affkirs in Custer
county, it la neverthelems true, that,
notwithstanding the large amount of
revenue receivel from taxes, luicenen
and otiher resource during the past
yeatl, aggregating about $IIIIinI, our
county treasury Is tl-day bankrupt. If
the btatetnlents of the treasurer are to
be belleved, there is no money in the
county treasury, belonging to either
the general or (mntingent funds, the
road or lamor lunds, and very little to
tihe school fund. And here, let it he
renwiembereil that it is but little more
than a years time since the outstand
ing inlk 4tedness of the county was
funded by taking up the then out
I stuniillg Inideitedhdnes of the county,
sad issuing $5..,llN). of 7 per cent. Inter
eit mearing Imnds in lieu of tile county
warrants thin : ee. We now ask in
all candor, what liha Imecoame of all the
molliney that I:to bteen paid into the
county treasullry sinlce these tlldst were
isued. What dslpnowition has bwen I
imaide of it ? ''he 's are gravequentions,
which vitally interest every tax-lvayer
of ('ubtter iouultyV and to wh.lcih they
have a right to sleiialnd and receive a
truthful an-wt-r. The tax-payerm of
the et.unty bmelieve the Isok.s of tile
treasurer's oflh,.M houhl show a large
itahlllance of imoney on hland. derive d
fromi taxes, etc., collected during the
last year, appjlib.lde to the ljaymellnet of
the outstatlsini indele ntess of tile
county. IDo tlhy show it? kDo the
couIIty r.ceritis .how the true colmdi
tion of our c(ulnty fiiances? This is
ait illlportant quelltion Uand one, cer
tainly which uti e.ilJtins have a right
!to. and will reullirn. When called on
for inlornmatin ulsen this subject, the
treasurer, if ie, condesends to ilotice I
tihe applilant at all, curtly imfornmes
himll, "there is no mionemv in the trea
ury." Not one dliar lhas been out in
I mnomey so far as we kniow, to jurnow.
or witnesses, or to hlalborer on tile
highways, or to otlher citizen. for ncr
vices renderel, or lir suplplies furnishhed
the i.ounty, except. Itrlhalm, to a few
I plitieal or pernullll iwets, who hangll
aI, round the publie funlelio l'nritl of the
county, and aid thuese Iolitkicl jugulars
of the p4colle's llmonley. I'ltese, we be
lieve, are laid dollar for dollar, in atsh.
It Is a taitt, patent to tile minlds
of tile most casuil observer, that our
collntv in thereby pilundered, and
plunged headlong into debt. until its
credit is nalmh st ruined-by the reckless
conduit of our county otiihers. This
tihing has been going on to an alarm"
it lng extent during the last two years.
Our lhrge incomlmes hvlte been, aid are
still being sqiuaudertd, while reckless
nen., enilelishied with debauchery and
criminal extravagence, decorated with
in decency, have stalked at nmid-day,
tttlrough our streels. We Iredlet more
thanl this, we know that when the hid- I
den iil steries which, at prtsent,
eshroud tihe rotten admininstlration oflurc
county atfflairs, are broughlt to light and
explsed to Illhe srutilhy of ani outraged
peoiple, as they, melltner or later, will be
a mass1 of offricial corruption and rot
tennrm will be found to exist, which,
in pro.ortion .to its magnitude, will
