Wo believe wo cun see g,,,,,!, healthy sign for the betterment of our county flnnnelul nffi.lis slnco wo have Iron able to nnko audi 's-rl-ou" accusutlons as to tl u Irregulari ties In the conducted ol our county business thut wo gavo the county editors a shock wl ic'. sunt them 011 Hie run to the court ho nee to cot "facts." Wo hope wo shall be ablo to shock thorn aR.tiu 11 id ihut they will take another hike to tho court houso and got Into the records. You know tho scenic b Kl.wa Is In a aplendld condition and It would he good cxerclso for our editors If the would take tho trip each week now and give the taxpayers some first hund Information that Is badly need ed. If our editors had taken a little pain to look over tho semi-annual reports of tho sheriff treusurcr and clerk, beginning July 1, 1015, and ending Deo. 31, 1916, which they printed, they would perhaps have dis covered that thoro was no mention of tho $12,000 which was levied for the sinking fund. If Kdltor Nutt had been as particular to print fact then as be Is now, ho would have dug Into the records at thut time. Kdltor1 Null, Just before the budget meeting, wrote an edltorlul In which he tried lo convoy the Idea to the taxpayers that I was not truthful In some or my previous statements and figures. If ho had gone to the records at that time ho would have foetid my figures were correct with the rocords In the court bouse, but of course I don't swear to the records being correct. That Is not my business. I should have gone further at that time and have told the people how the money was being transferred from one fund to another and back and forth. I am lionmt in this mat ter of getting facta before our tax payers and I have no selfish motives and havo nothing but tho friendliest feeling for euch and every member of tho present court and county of ficers, but my whole aim Is to clean ing up our records and paying off our Indebtedness. Mr. Italian admits that tho county court spent more money lust year than it had on hand and he paid out tho $12,000 In the sinking fund, to tako care of part of this debt, which I believe was Illegally created. He must also admit, according to in formation thut we havo gathered, that besides spending the sinking fund money, to pay off debts created by tho county court, thut there aro also afloat severul thousand dollars' worth of unpaid warrants. We can put our hands on no mo of them today. I think that whilo the county treas urer Is admitting the fucts contained In my last lettor, he might tell us Just how much money the county court spent last your and Just how much cash there was on hand to pay the debt off. I think It would be Interesting to know how much of this year's tax money tho treasurer will have to use to pay off last year's debts and also supply the money for the sinking fund. How la tho county court going to get the money to return to tho sink ing fund nnd how Is it going to ret the monoy to pay off tho other debts and at tho samo time keep fulth with tho taxpayors on the year's budget of expenses? Is It not time to know Just whore we stand and the suggestion might be offered that wo may need a new sot of officers to inform us intelli gently In regard to our cash balances and our debts? If Mr. Hattan did use the sinking fund luBt year to pay off dobts In ex cess of the cash on band, will ho please tell us who contracted thoae debt and why he I Inellnod to offer apologies? Which one of tho officers will come forward nnd say "I did U with my little hatchot?" The law regarding the handling of Inking fund raised by taxation to redeem highway bonds, Is a follows: The county treasurer ot any couuty within this state is hereby authorized to deposit any funds coming Into his hand for the purpose ot redeeming rood bond Issued undor the provis ion ot thlB act, In any bank doinp buslnes within the state organized under the national banking laws of the United States, or uador tho law ot this state; provided that at or before the date of sucn deposit the bank receiving the sami shall furn ish to such officer ai security for moneys so deposited, bonds of the United State of America, or of the state of Orogon, or ot any county, municipality or chool llstrict within said Btate, and Bald cjunty iinll bo responslbe for the safe koeplng and return thereof. Any of the bonds so deposited may be exchangod or re turned to the doposltor thereof at any time upon delivery to the county treasurer of a like sum of other bonds ot the kind authorized to be dopoBlted horeundor. All securities offored as soourlty for deposit by any county treasurer shall be approved by tho ST. HELENS MIST, FRIDAY, MARCH 17, 1916 county court of the county. The mar ket vuluo of such security to be at least 10 per cent In excess of the amount of such deposit. Whenever there aro sufficient funds on hand in tho bond redemption fund, the county treasurer with tho approval of the county court Is hereby authorized to loun uny money In the bond redemp tion fund, secured by first mortgage on Improved reul eHtate within the county at 6 per cent Interest per an num.

HELENS MIST, Editor St. Helens Mist Your edl torlul "The Outlook," In laBt week' Mist Is correct In diagnosis of the Re publican, Democratic and Progres sive politicians trading their party program and principles for victory, which In my cstlmutlon means thut tho politicians are sacrificing the wolfare of the people who voted for their parties, for offlco and a grab at the pie counter. Hut when the Mist editor predicts thut the Socialists may nominate Bryan as their candidate for presi dent, he is mistaken, because the by luws of the Socialist party requires all candidates for representatives, senators and president to show that they have been dues paying members of tho Socialist party for three con secutive years in order to qualify for the nomination, which gives very little chance for vacillating politic ians to get the support of the Social ist party. The dues paying members of the Socialist party are Just now electing their national secretary, executive committee and nominating their can didate for president and vice presi dent by the referendum vote of all members In good standing.
