While Lee county taxes are high
and the'present indebtedness is a mat
ter of concern it has been in reality
the deBire of the supervisors and
others to vjork as little hardship as
possible on the- residents that has
brought the county finances to the
present state. The large Indebted
ness has not come In a year, or in
two years, or three, except (or the
ows' pension and the Commerpial
bank loss,but is the natural
consequence of not. taking care
of Indebtedness before or at the
tiihe it la present. Several years
ago the levy was insufficient to carry
on the work of the insane fund and
tue railroad fund the deficiency had
not -been taken up yet.
This year's estimate of thirty mills,
but one mill*larger than list year and
caring for practically all departments,
shows that conditions and taxes ara
normal. When Interest on outstand
ing indebtedness, and a large one a*,
that, can be cared for and scarcely
any further Indebtedness added for
one mill, It is easily apparent that
with the indebtedness cared .for b7
refunding or other means the taxes
should, normally, decrease.

felt that Des Moines would have the
honor of entertaining the next Con

There was a large attendance at

board of the federation, including
the officers, district chairmen and

was given over chiefly to organizing
the work of the coming year and pre
