I ‘ ) THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1912. I That New County State ment. When will the new County State- j tnent make its appearanee? it will I He recalled that the lat legislature | passed a law requiring the County : Commissioners to publish an itemized \ detailed statement for all moneys re-1 ceived and expended, instead of the old antiquated one which did not give any information worth the snap of a finger, except as to witness fees, j out pensions and coroners’ inquests, | which in the aggregate, make up but | up hut approximately one-hundredth part of the whole expenditure. According to a news item appear ing in the Frederick Xeim, this new statement may not be forthcoming tliis year, for the reason that a new method of bookkeeping must be in augurated; in fact, Mr. Harp, Clerk to the Commissioners, says that it will take an extra clerk to compile this work. Well, what if it does. The taxpayers are entitled to full knowledge of where every dollar of their money goes and it certainly is not going It) excuse those in authority for not complying with the new law this fall. Tut: Clarion has time and again called attention to the miserable ex cuse for a statement that lias always lieen published, and we take the stand now, that as the law n quires its pub lication in detail, that no excuse should lie sought to circumvent the carrying into effect of its publication ibis fall. The writer will hazard the assertion, that, it the luniks as they are now kept, are in intelligent shape (which we have no doubt they arc), that a good stenographer and type writer will put the whole thing in shape for the printer in one week by the present clerk to the board dictat ing the items. Let any one take the Washington ! County statement and it will be seen i at a glance that the job is not so big as it might seem. For instance, in each district the supervisors get so much per mile for road work accord ing to the levy and perchance some thing extra for emergency work. Is , it very say that Mechanics- ] town District got 8250, expended as follows: Jones 870, Brown 825, Smith | 830, new bridge over Hunting Creek i 8125, thus accounting for the whole of the 8250? The people expect this ! new statement and our County Com missioners should get busy. ENTHUSIATIC FUR 1914. Filled with fresh enthusiasm for the celebration of the centennial of the battle of North Point to lie held in Baltimore in September, HH 1, Baltimore members of the General Society of the War of ISI2 returned from Philadelphia, where the biennial conference was held.
