" The finance committee of the boari
of" Supervisors, which has in hand the
campaign' for the proposed special las
of Wcfentson the $100 for county pu'
poses for a ter.n of six years, has is
sued a circular in support of ttie pro
posed tax measure as a means of rais
ing revenue for the county. The cir
cular showg the valuation, state tax,
county and special county tax, town
tax, school tax, road and bridge tax,
and municipal tax levied In the county
since 1875, for the years 1873, 1880,
1885, 1890. 1890. 1900, 1905, and 190S.
The circular calls attention to the fact
that while other taxes, such as the
school tax, state tax and municipal
tax, have increased greatly siuce
1875,. the tax for county purposes is
now but $7,734.17 compared with
. $70,074.01 in 1875. In the same period
the tax for school purposes has in
creased from $8C.044.!0 to $319,3-15.7:
state taxes have increased from $30,-450.33-.
to $32,471.02, and municipal
taxes have increased from $72,074.27
I-adlratea the Deficit.
The circular states that the cost rf
operating the county is about $100,00'j
a year, and the tax of 75 cents for
county purposes" brings a revenue of
about $78,000. There is a floating debt
of $135,noO. The supervisors, at the
time it was decided to place the special
tax proposition on the ballot, reached
an understanding that half of the tax,
if provided, should apply to the debt,
and half to meet current expenses. It
was estimated that this course would
pay the cost of operation and also pay
off the floating debt in the term of six
years of. the tax.
The figures given in the circular
were compiled from the records at
the court house.
