Editor Star: Below is a statement of the treasurer's monthly report for September, as published in the pro ceedings of the county commissioners of the meeting held in October. I add thereto a statement of showing the amount of warrants drawn on each fund for the same time.

Roberts 305 Undertaking Office 47 Balance $2492.72 Total warrants issued $18297.87 By taking the treasurer's report for the month of September, as published, one can come to no other conclusion than that the county's receipts exceed ed the expenditures by $2492.72. By showing:, as I have, the warrants issued on each fund by our county commissioners and school board for September, we get at the true condi tion of the county's finances for the month. This shows that instead of having $2432.72 to our credit, the county authorities issued $13,255.14 more warrants than the total receipts, placing us just that much deeper in debt for the month of September. By pub"ehing a statement that our receipts are nearly double our ex penditures, and at the same time fall ing to publish the fact that our au thorities Issued more than three times as many warrants as total receipts, and nearly eight times as much as they say they spent, is not an honest report and I say it is the poorest kind of public stewardship to publish but par tial statements in regard to county finances thereby misleading the tax paying public. The road fund for September, 1911, was $4,025.48. In September last the warrants Issued was $8,026.60. The state auditor's report for 1910 says the total tax receipts that year was $92,178.27. The county tax levy for 1912 with the license taxes will be $150,268.75. Barring delinquent taxes, the Increase will be $58,090.48, an in crease of 60 per cent. What is the remedy? Have the next legislature pass a law that will compel the county com missioners and school board to pub lish monthly the total receipts, total disbursements and total warrants is sued under each fund. Put our coun ty commissioners and school boards under bonds, thereby guaranteeing the taxpaying public that their taxes will not be spent contrary to law, etc. Tass a bill perm'tting our county au thorities to borrow money under cer tain considerations on short time.

Lilian Club Meeting- in New York Sa urday Night Proved that the Bis Man In a Good Lower t- New York. Nov. 17. President Taft sang his 'swan song" as chief execu tive of the nation last night. As the guest of the Lotus Club the president responded to the toast, "The Presi dent." in a speech which many of his hearers considered the most remark able he has ever made. He shifted from grave to gay and from the phi losophy which he said four years in the White House had taught, to a dis cussion of problems which face the nation. He laughed at the outcome of the election and srr.ilcd when he spoke of the plans of President-elect Wil son. In his serious moments, the presi dent earnestly advocated the admis sion to the halls of Congress of the members of a president's cabinet; de clared that a six-year term in the presidency was enough for any man; advocated strongly the placing in the civil service of practically every of ficer in the government service and hinted broadly that Congress should provide for former presidents so that they need not lower the dignity of the position they have held when they enter into private life. His chief regret, the president said, was that he had been unable to influ ence the United States Senate to rat ify the arbitration treaties with France and Great Britain. In spite of that fact he asked his audience to believe that he would leave office with the deepest gratitude to the American people for the honor they had given him and with the belief that enough progress had been accomplished in his administration to warrant him in feel ing that he had done real good for his country. He gave a toast to his successor: "Health and success to the able, dis tinguished and patriotic gentleman who is to be" and he raised his glass while his hearers rose to their feet "the president of the United States."
