A GOOD SHOWING.
Last week we pu)blisbil a stav
ment made by the county commishii
showing the iniancial comdition of thi
coUty, sho.ving that, even saddlitig
a debt made by the former board,
they have run the coulily at a saving.
of $10,000 less tMan the former ad
ministration. This speaks well for
the board and shows they are possos
(id with mueh business acun.n and
financial sagacity*. Just a few rnoro
years of such management and ohu
Pickens county would be out of debt
and movng on a cash basis. The
tax levy would be lowered, and good
times would prevail. In this connec
tian we do iot t:ink it wouild be
amiss, and we believe he entire
county would concur with us, in sany
ing that the law relativo to paying
our county comtissioners is wrong
and should be righted. They draw
pay for 100 days aud live to put in
o;er time for nothing. Jol P.
Smith has covered 150 days and then
had to leave part of hiis work undono
They should be given $300 per year,
half what the supervisor gets, or be
allowed so much por day with the
time not limited. 'ickes county is
coming to the forefront and her pub
lie officers should be paid a living,
reasonable, salary. Her oflicials are
the porest paid of any in the state
The salary of the clerk of the board
should be raised fifty dollars, for it
takes a good book-keeper to keep up
with the work of the ollico, besides
that he should be paid a suflicient
salary so ho could keep the office
open and be prepared to look after
matters for the board when they are
not in session.
In justice to the office of county
commissioners and clerk of hoar-d our
delegation should raise their erlaries.
We believe we speak truly wvhen we
say the taxpayers tire ini favor oh
higher salaries, as it gives the coun
ty better and more comipetenit oflicials.
iRAISE THE ASSESSMENT.
The F. J. Pelzer [arm, near Central,
containing 000 acres and heretofore
returned at $5.00 per acre, was as
seased at $12.00 por acre this .year.
T1his is alright and as it shou11ld he;
everybody should retur-n thoirreal and
personal property at its true val ua
tioE, or what it would sell for in open
market. If this po icy was pur~sued byV
every taxpayer in the state, in two
year's time our tax levy wvould not
exceed six mis for state and county
purposes, and would piobaily drop
below this figure if every enterprise
bore its proportionatam share of the tax
along with the farming elemnent.
Old customs are hard to inave off
