Eailway Company to Our County Treasurer. On the 20th inst. County Treasurer Gibbs received from the U. P. Bailway Company 19,851.58, the same being their full year's taxes on the following: FOB TEEGO COUNTY. County tax 2,963.97 State tax 1 1,215.23 Wa-KeeneyTp. tax 114.55 Wa-Keeney City tax 115.67 Trego Co. School Districts, taxes 4,060.16 FOB ST. JOHN TOWNSHIP. Township tax 2,926.39 St. John Tp. School Dists., taxes 2,276,84 FOB WAI1I1ACE TOWNSHIP. Wallace Tp. tax 2.66362 Wallace Tp. School Dists., taxes 3,995.43 Beferring to the disposition of the above taxes, Treasurer Gibbs is ready to honor properly-certified orders from St. John and Wallace townships for the amounts credited to their school districts. There is no question to be raised con cerning the fact that the rest of the funds paid for St. John township are a part of our county's resources. As to what will be the action in refer ence to the 2,663.62 of township tax for Wallace township, the World can only say that in view of the able legal counsel which the railroad company keeps on hand, they, in all probability, did not pay this money into our treasury with their eyes shut. Several individuals in Wallace township have paid their taxes to our county treasurer this month. We have taken no part in the discus sion as to whether Wallace county is organized, and are not writing this ar ticle as a reflection against the good people up there who believe it is. The World merely states these facts as it understands them. They are good enough for practical purposes. Our county treasury is in a plethoric condi tion. The fame of our county, whose people have proceeded on the plan of keeping out of debt, is not to be tarnished. Hurrah for Trego county on her grand condition on entering the new year!
