Certainly this useful little machine,
which can display some three dozen
messages at a timo. seems to provide a
safe means of communicating in a pub
lic place. Messages cannot bo tam
pered with or wrongly delivered, which
von write with your'own hand. You
slide a penny in the slot, a panel drops,
forming a writing rest, and you are
automatically provided with a pencil
and card. After you have written your
message you replaco tho card in the
framo of tho machine and it drops into
position behind a gins? window. There
it remains in position for at lenst three
hours, and then disappears to make
room for another message.
Railway stations, and. in Londou par
ticularly, tube stations, are favorite
meeting-places. But there is always
that element of the beautiful uncer
tainty about nppoiutmeuts. It is at
such public mcetiug points that tho
automatic "messenger boy" is likely
to prove a friend in need.

LOXDON, Xov. 2. How a burplar

pared for him waa told at Hirminchara,
when Alfred Chandler, commission
apout, w8 sentenced to scveu yea'
poual servitude for feloniously enter
ing the shop of Mrs. Henriotta Aaron,
pawnbroker, of Colmore row.
In July last the burglar openqd a
conversation with Mr. Lorle, the man
ager of Mrs. Aaron's business, nnd sue
cested that Lorie should 'lend him the
Ke3'C3 of the proinisos so that ho could
make an impression of them. "It

added: "she is probably insured, aud
it will mean a thousand or two for

who advised him to let the prisoner
have a duplicate et of keys. He did
so. and after an impression had been
made the prisoner returned them, and
it was urranRcd that he should break
iuto the shop. The polico watched him
enter the premises and followed him.
As soon as Detective Knowles entered,
tho prisoner knocked him down with a

place1. Tho police found a complete

bursements were 5S8,799.S7.-
4. That Mic expenses of county administration have more than
doubled in the same period and thai almost every department recks
5. That the Sheriff's office in 1901, under a Democratic offi
cer, cost the taxpayers $17,211.03; that two years later, under a
"Republican Sheriff, it cost the taxpayers of Salt Lake County $22,
980.39. and that it now costs $36,567.64 a year under a more eco
nomical official than has been nominated to succeed him.
6. That, the office of County Recorder, under a Democrat, cost
but $13.061.S4 in 1901, whereas the same office cost the taxpayers
of this county $24,017.84. last. year.
7. That the County Treasurer's office, under a Democrat, in
1901 cost but. $13,954.29, while the same office costs the taxpayers
$52,506.97 a year to run it now.
These figures are taken from the official records of. Salt Laky
County records compiled by .Republican officials records open to
inspection by every taxpayer. ' " " '
Let us take these records and examine the increased . cost of
county government; during -Republican administrations, leaving out
all references to years of Democratic economy. .
During the past seven years the Republican county administra
tion, has made an actual . increase in outlay as 'follows:
In 1905' $317,541.72"
... In 1900, .f 353,625.16 ' .
..; In .1907 , 386,830.17 -

In 1909 .. ....I 456.443.06
fn 1910 I 556,099.85 '
In 1911 ; -586,799.87
I have not placed any blame for extravagance or excessive
taxation on any Republican .who hold office in .1901 or 1902.
Those were years of moderation and economy. For every act
of justice performed, whether to me or to anyone else by Republi
cans or Democrats, T am thankful and appreciative. There was
then no gang in control. There was no systematic exploitation
of the public. The offices were divided between the parties. Only
when Republicans secured absolute control did the plucking of the

assistance as is necessary."
SOME OFFICIAL EXPLANATIONS.
It has been said by some of the professional officeholders, then
relatives and dependent friends, that increased valuations have
come from improvements.
But. they don't explain why these improvements fail to bear "
a fair proportion of the expenses of state and county government.
AVhat. farmer, or merchant, or mechanic, or laborer, gets a re
duction of 02 per cent on property valuations for tax purposes?
Tot look at the Bingham & Garfield railway, for example. The
assessed valuation is $366,990. From the repprt filed by that com
pany last year, the property is valued at $4,539,506.24
Property valued at four and a half million is taxed in this
county on an assessed valuation of one-third of one million.
Whose private interests have cost this county more for their
protection than the private interests of those who own the Bine
ham & Garfield railway'
Why should favoritism be shown by-the county assessor and
tho County Board of Kqualizotion in the adjustment of these
Is it because campaign contributions come in campaign times
from those big interests while, they can be collected from "the tax
payers through salaries and sinecures?
Don't the taxpayers care or can't they figure? There isn't anv
reason why the taxpayers of this county shouldn't stop and study

SELFISH IN THEIR SECURITY. ftjC
Continued in oilicc and control of county affairs for many years, the Repub- j
liuan county administration has felt secure from interruption. Its conduct in 'WF '
public office shows how secure it felt. fl'
It has grown callous to the rights of the pooplc and selfish in the approjinv Sflt
lion of privileges which bolong to nil alike. 9f
It hax placed burdens on tho poor and granted favors to taxed officials and Juftii

It has squandered thousands of dollars holoiigiug to tho people in its Ux , ImVLr,
method of buying county supplies.
It has suffered its county treasurer to handle the people's money so tlic peo
pic got no benefit from it.
Tt has disregarded the interest of taxpayers butwecu campaigns and mani fr
fested solicitude only during canipaigns. 'BiSO

PARTY OF REPUDIATION. jft
Republican candidates have been asked by the Republican organ to rcpudl- 'ML p

All the legislative candidates have already promised lo violate one or mote WrfOl
pledges of tho platform on which they arc 'running. -ifttifpi
Au official advertisement of this fact has been published in the daily pre"
. of this city by officials of the club aggrieved. ft511
The Herald-Republican has advised the Republican legislative candidaiu mt
in this county to disregard the recall plank. Yet the Republican legislative Tl
platform demands the recall of just tho3c public ollicinls who were not cboua 'Jj
