Kn. Wave : A communication en
titled " Th# Tax Law," and signed
" Paracelsus,'' published in the last
number of the Avalanche, contains
the very extraordinary assertion that
section 9 of the law relating to the
creation powers and duties of the
Board of County Commissioners,
and which forbids the Commission
ers to buy any property, real or
personal, unless the same ts "abso
« _
lately nscessary for the use of the
count y " Ac., " has no reference
! whatever to the tax law.
ssrtion is a very bold one and the
writer evinced excellent judgment
in discretely declining to give any
reason for it.
sensible thing to decline to give any
reason when 110 good reason can be
The assertion of " Paracel
cannot be true. The law
u
The as
In fact it is a very
given,
sus "
means what it says and what it says
is so plain and clear that there is
j possible chance of misunderstand
! in 2 U -
1 Even if wo should admit for the
purpose of the argument that the
statement of " Paracelsus " in ref
to the Commissioner law is
uo
erence
true, his case would not be benefit
ted by it, for section 43 of the reve
law itself provides "That no
fees or costs shall be paid to any
officer or district attorney unless the
shall be collected Irom the de
nue
same
! fendant."
Will "Paracelsus" ini re the hard
ihood to contend in the face of the
of the Uw above quoted
j
I
! provisions
: that the county has a right to bid in
' at excution sale the worthless prop
erty of delinquent tax-payers for
the amount of the judgment* and
j thus compel the county to pay the
I fees of all officers incurred in the
! collection of the delinquent tax.
j The absurdity of the proposition
g0 clear that it needs no argument
| to expose it. It is at best but a
, DurtgliuE attempt to collect illegal
1 fees from the couniy, which the law
1 says the county shall not pay. It
! mav be said that it is wrong to re
quire officers to perform services
wit ) 10u t compensation. Even if this
1 be true it is clear that the revenue
: ^ doe , n0 * contemplate that suits
be brought when it is apparent
i
I
.
- -
that the property will not pay the
! costs. Section 44 provides
? M th# flrst Monday in July of each
year the district attorney shall at
tend at th© office of the county aud
itor with the delinquent list or lists,"
•* shall et the same time
" That
j C i and
deliver to the auditor a written *tate
; ment of all delinquent taxe, upon
gaid d#linquent Hat or list* remam
unC0 Uected or for which *uit has
not been brought, with hi* reasons
in detail for not being able to col
: i*ct tbe same or for not bringing
.
j ^,, clear from the abov . provis
ion of the revenue act that the coun
not required to bring
ty officer* are
! suit or incur any co*w 1» the m *' ter
0 f delinquent taxe» when the dtp
' trict attorney can give any good
reason for no t being able to col
; lect the same," and certainly the
! belt rea.cn that could be given
, I ^ b( _ ^ the prop erty wa* not
gu flj c ient value t« defray the
1
coat* of suit.
But even if there was no-provision
in the revenue law requiring " tb»t
no fees or costs shall be paid" "un- as
leas the same shall be collected from 1
the defendant," the statement ol !
" Paracelsus " that at an execution j
sale of property delinquent for taxes ■ the
" there being no bidder the plaintiff
compelled to be the purchaser, !
and of course the plaintiff has to ; ed.
pay the costs," is certainly not true, to
"Paracelsus is again mistaken in
the law. The plaintiff in no suit
brought for taxes, or for anything '
u
else, is compeUed to bid in the prop
erty, and the plaintiff who would j
buy iu worthless property for th« i
sake ot paying a big bill of costs, j
must be an idiot or a lunatic untit j
to be permitted to run at large. 1
1
The County Commissioner are the ;
agent* of the tax-payers ot the 1
county and have sworn to obey the !
Uw and faithfully to perform the j
duties of their offices, and eves :
if there was no law to the contrary .
they should not permit the tux-pay- j
ers to be wronged by mulcting the
county in a big bill of coats in the .
purchase of ''worthless property.*'

Tbs Avalanche of two issues back
contained a philosophical article on !
the Democratic Yok#, which,
want of room, w* wer» unable to j
answer in our last. That paper, in .
answer to our strictures on the Uw !
far j
i
for the collection of delinquent taxes, -
owns up that a Democratic Legisla
turc did lav upon the necks of th*
• * '
people a heavy yeke, but insists that j
they were honest in it, and for that
reason it should be borne without
murmuring, or in effect that they i
were an honest set of fools who de- 1
serve pity rather than censure. Thru
1 J
almost in the same sentence, a* if to ;
shake one's confidence in the ability j
of the Avalanche to judge intelli- j
aentlv of the matter, the startling :
proposition is enunciat.d of con,in-1
llintr the same stupid asses in posl- '
. . . i
tion on th© ground that th©T, Lm ing |
made the yoke and placed it on the i
people's necks, must know best hi'W
. „1 „«• ■
to get U Ou.
This aisnmption, ooming from an
expounder of the pure and simple
principles of Democracy so elos* on
the heels of a plea of ignorance in
palliation of an offence the repeti
tion of Which is sought to be avoid
ed in future is defensible upon no
other ground than that of Demo
cratic philosophy.

Till Juki P.i.ictio.n. During o*r
»bsence last week the Idaho World
was received but ha* since been mi»- ,
layed, so that we are uuable to refer j
minutely to it* extraordinary article |
bearing upon th* June eloctien. The
World infer, from an article in the j
Wave ef the week previous that a
trap is about to be *prung on tbe
Democracy of the Territory, and
two elections held, one in June and
one in Augu»t, to that should a ma
jority of Republican* be elected at ;
either a bench of Radieal Judge.
decide that one to be tbe legal !
election day, and thus secure by
fraud th* election of Republican (
ter
not
the
rsn
officers.
l»et u* assure the World the! *o
far as we are in the confidence of '
Republican politicians in tbe Terri- j
tory, and we know of no reason why j
they should conceal their plan* from ,
*ucb anti-Bepublican thought ;
us, ne
as that given in the World ever en
tered the head of a single individual
until it sprung full fledged from the
j brain of that Jupiter of Democracy, j.]
■ the Idaho World, and that from no ,
other than a Democratic source could j
! such a villainous idea have emanat
; ed. We presume we do not arrogate |
to ourselves too much when we as- ;
sum* to speak for the Republican ,
party on this question and give fair | Kic
' warning that the Republicans of i
Idaho understand the law ol Con-!
j grew of March, 1868, to fix the da y
i for a general election in Idaho on
j the first Monday in June, and from
j th© result* of the election on that
1 day tb«r« will be no dodging on
1
; t^cir part. The law is too plain to
1 admit of a doubt as to its meaning,
! and Republicans will obey it though
j Demo cracy should fix another day ,
