Arguments Whv the Matter
Should be Left Alone
SOME FACTS AND FIGURES
Mr O. Gibson In a Tombstone letter
to the Wilcox Bangs News has the
' 'Next to the things transpiring in
our own town, the topic of absorbing
interest to the people here is tbe pro
posed county seat removal. Tbe
Pso-rECT a has been dealing some
effective blows to the grabbers. No
much alarm is felt, but ao intelligent
and proper interest is manifested by
all. Tbe PbojPECTju Id an editorial
very justly called attention to the
health conditions in Btabee at a
strong argument agiinst tbe change.
But the strongest argument is the
financial one against removal. Your
correspondent stepped into the sup
ervisors' office tbe other day, and
Clerc Duucan sh iwed him some
figures wbicb are mire eloquent than
any words can be. Those figures re
vraled the fact that last year tb
oounty ran behind tJS.OOO. This
year the rate is $4.20 on the f 100, and
that is not sutScieot ti keep tbe
county from running behind again
this yrar. If a rate sufficiently Urge
to pay off last year's deficit and otrry
the county through ole-ir this year
bad been levied, it would have been
about 6I0 on tbe $103. Are tbe
poop'e of tbe oounty going to burden
themselves, then, with 40,030 or
50,0X) more of debt in order to
gratify tbe covetousnesa of a few
Biebeo proptrty holders? It does not
seem probable tbat they will."
Last evening the republican mis
meeting was held at tbe city ball for
tbe purpose of selecting delegates to
theoounty convention at Bisbee on
tbe 23 1 inet. Tbe call brought out
nearly a full attendance of republican
in Tombstone, tbe count showing 23
with two absent. John Montgomery,
as committeeman , stated tbe object ol
tbe meeting and was af terwsrd unan
imously made chairman and Perry
VV'ildman made secretary. Eleven
names were presented for delegates to
tbe oOLveotioQ, of whom five were
chosen. Tbe following being declared
elected with tbe rote for each: Ry
Bwain, 17; John afontgomery, 14;
Perry Wildman, 14; A. H. Emanuel,
12;Cbai. Bowman, 12. Tbe lack o
id teres t ol. tbe republicans is probabl;
due to the tact that they reoognue
the fact that tbe democratic tide'
can't bi beat.
