GIVES REASONS FOR
INCREASED TAXES
Declares Taxes Cannot Be
Cut Down So Long as Leg
islature Continues to Pass
New Laws Calling For Ad
ditional Expenditures.
Bismarclt, N. D., Aug. 14.—You
cannot have your cake and eat it
too, declares one county auditor in
answering a letter upon taxes from
the office of State Tax Commissioner
O. €. Converse. You cannot have
improvements in government and
not pay for it, he also adds. Because
of the evidence in the letter that the
man had thought over tax problems,
Mr. Converse has permitted publica
tion of the letter with the name of
the county and the author deleted.
"To me there is nothing mysteri
ous about the increase in taxes of
all kinds. Our county has increased
less in per cent than the state taxes
during a like period. In fact there
is little difference on a quarter sec
tion of land in this county between
the state and county taxes. One
cannot have his cake and eat it at
the same time, and when one looks
over the past few years and con
siders what Has been going on, there
is not much need to call for a reduc
tion of taxes as yet until people
stop and realize that for every thing
granted them in the form of legis
lation and improvements they will
have to make an equal contribution
in the form of taxes.
"The movement on foot to have
the legislature limit the tax levies is
on a par with a lot of other legis
lation. Everything one could think
of has been touched upon and regu
lated by the legislature and now
they hope to perform the miracle of
limiting the tax levies and still
keeping all the other 'good things.'
Last year the legislature pasBed the
teachers' wage law and limited the
tax levies for schools at the same
time. The legislature' increased this
county's expense at the last session
over $2,000 per year and then lim
ited our tax levy—which is burning
the candle at two ends, I would say.
Now Laws Increase Taxes
"However, I will go over some of
the items of increase in this letter
and in so doing I have not taken the
figures from 1915 to date as there
is a lot of items in our expenditures
now that were not there in 1915,
and I believe the method 1 follow
will answer the purpose just as well.
But here are some of the things that
the legislature has done the past few
years to help increase taxes:
"1. Passed the printing law so
that a tax sale costs us about two
or three times as much as usual.
Other printing likewise. Also passed
laws providing for more printing, as
for instance printing of treasurers'
quarterly reports of deposits. Our
tax sale cost us close to $500 last
fall and under the old law it would
have cost us about $200.
"2. Increased the superintendents'
mileage from 10 cents per mile for
some years back to 15 cents now.
"3. Increased the salaries of four
county officials in this county about
$500 per year:
"4. Gave us extra juvenile com
missioner so that we now have two
and I doubt if we need any.
"5. Gave us the tax supervisor for
a while.
"6. Gave us the mothers' pension
law. In 1915 we paid very little for
this. Now we pay about $6,000 per
year.
"7. Increased the cost of keeping
the insane. In 1915 we paid about
$4,600 and for the coming year it
will be over $12,000.
"8. Gave us the semi-annual pay
ment of taxes, which means two set
tlements a year and more clerk hire,
receipts, postage besides putting
the payment of taxes out six months
more has meant an enormous
amount of interest paid by all polit
ical subdivisions.
"9. Increased the salaries of court
bailiffs 50 per cent.
"10. Increased the county com
missioners salaries 20 per cent.
"11. Increased the cost of clerk
hire by throwing the hair insurance
work onto the county officers, and
although we are compensated some
what for this work it does not pay
by half the detail imposed on us.
"12. Provided for the register of
deeds to make abstracts for elevator
companies. Our registrar of deeds
makes an abstract with over 800
entries on it together with a weekly
report afterwards and gets $5 for
this from the county funds. Figure
the profit.
"13. Gave us the workman's com
pensation law which costs us around
$300 per year.
"14. Made us pay for the Su
preme Court Reports at $4 or there
abouts, per volume.
"15. 'Passed a law whereby drain
bridges are paid out of the bridge
fund or from general taxation,
where' they used to be paid by spe
cial assessment.
"16. Gave us the referendum,, re
call and initiative, which means
more ballots and more elections.
We have had elections every year for
the past five or six years where we
used to have them every other year.
This year we bought 25,000 ballots
where we used to buy about one
quarter that number. Woman suf
frage has also cost us something on
account of more ballots and doubling
.. the cost of registering the voters. We
v.:-- paid out $600 for registering the
voters this year and which I consld
\er an unnecessary expense. In-:
v'/- .creased the cost per precinct for of-
Y from about $24, at the most,
$24, at the least.
'•tfbw then comes the other end
that is the things that the county
in ih» markets. tlader
sp=
A
telephone,' poor relief and sundry
other items. There has been an in
crease of every one of the above
items by about 100 per cent in some
instances. Let me take the mat
ter of bridges. In 1915 we bought
the lumber, and had it hauled Six
miles and placed in the bridge com
plete for $45 per thousand. Today
the price is from $65 to $70 per
thousand. |Fu|r!tbermaTe, a betr.er
typfe of bridge is called for today."
The writer then declared there
was no reason for attempting to do
public business on other lines than
that of private individuals, and con
tinued:
"However, I expect there must be
some sort of limit for taxation, but
the first thing that must be realized
is that our law-making bodies can
not go ahead at every session and
pass a book full of laws to be carried
out without an expenditure of puolio
money. If the legislature, when it
next meets, will go over our existing
laws and cut out all the unnoocssar."
ones, and then refrain from passing
new ones that call for more tax»fc,
then we can talk of prescribing a
limit of taxation.
"I do not know whether my ideas
of limits for taxation ara worth
much or not. Certainly the law
passed at the last session for limit
of taxes was an idiotic piece of
work.
"For the purpose of arriving at
some conclusion on this, I givo the
following figures showing old and
new valuations and what could be
raised under the old laws:
In 1915 our valuation was about
$7,000,000. We could raise on this
county general, 8 mills, $56,000
not enough now county bridge, 4
mills, ,$28,000, nojt \enoUgh now
county'road, 4 mills, $28,000, more
than enough now insane, as needed.
Under the present method of as
sessment our valuation is about $36,
000,000. I would suggest the fol
lowing mill rate to be ample: Coun
ty general, 2 mills, $72,000, little
more than needed county bridge,
1 mill, $36,000, about right county
road, 1 mill, $36,000, more than
enough emergency, one-half mill.
$18,000, only as needed insane, as
needed.
"Our levy for 1922 is about $140,
000. This includes interest, and I
figure that this ought to carry us
through. The above rates would
give us more than plenty in case of
an emergency, and you will have
some confidence ip the levying oard
that they do not go too far.
"For school purposes, I would say
that 10 mills for rural schools
ought to be the limit.
"For special districts where ex
emptions cut in on the city valua
tions, not over 25 mills for general
purposes.
"For city purposes, general, only
12 mills.
"For city purposes, park, 2 mill*.
"For township purposes, 3 mills.
"For township road, 3 mills.
"Sinking fund to be additional to
the above.
"There is one item on taxes that
I omitted to mention. That is coun
ty and state roads. In 1915 we had
no county road levy or system. In
the later years we have gone into
roads quite extensively. This has
increased taxes from $5 to $10 per
quarter section each year. But I
feel that it is the best investment
that we have made, because we have
pulled ourselves out of the mud, and
the mud and bad roads cost ud more
than the good roads. Besides, there
has been a revolution in the last
!W
years in the methods of traveling
and this had to be done."
Mr. Converse has written two let
ters to each of the county auditors
of the state presenting questions
which he wishes them to be ready to
discuss when they meet with him in
a special session of the county au
ditors next week, and the above let
ter was in answer to one of thes«,
indicating that there will be many
suggestions regarding taxes when
the meeting is held here.
LITTLE BOY DROWNS
Fargo, Aug. 16.—The Red River
claimed its first victim of the season
at this point yesterday. It was Don
ald Jones, 7-year-old son of Mr. and
Mrs. Harry Jones of the Roberts ho
tel.
Running away from his mother,
it is said, the lad went to the river
bank with a companion. The first
intimation of the whereabouts of her
son was when the companion came
to her shortly after 5 p. m. and told
her that Donald had fallen into the
river and disappeared.
Although searchers took up the
task of dragging at once, their ef
forts to find the body were futile up
to a late hour last night.
Details of the accident are some
what vague. The accident occurred
at the dam and it is presumed the
lads had been wading when Donald
was dragged down by the current.
The father, who had been away on
a business trip, arrived in Fargo yes
terday just in time to learn of the
fate of his son.

COUNCIL PASSES NE W
APPROPRIATIONS AT
MONDAY'S MEETING
Carrying out the wishes of the ma
jority of the voters of Jamestown as
expressed by the petitions circulated
under the auspices of the local cham
ber of commerce and presented at
the last meeting of the city council,
the council passed a new appropria
tion ordinance at a special meeting
Monday night. The ordinance calls
for increases totaling about $19,000,
but it is explained by councilmen
that a large part of this amount is
for the past indebtedness or to mere
ly legalize warrants already issued
and in many cases paid.
City Auditor DePuy, in a state
ment today explaining this .matter
took Fund No. 15, streeting lighting,
as an example to explain the point
that about nine thousand dollars of
the above amount has already been
collected in taxes and is in the var
ious funds. Fund No. 15 shows that
an appropriation for $5,000 was
made last September. There was
however, $6,210.98 in outstanding
warrants against that fund at that
time. Since that time $8,755.61 has
been paid out of this fund.
The warrants for the present fis
cal year total $6,527.75. Adding to
this latter figure the expenses for
August, which will be in the neigh
borhood of $500, one arrives at the
approximate expenditures from this
fund during the present fiscal year.
It will thus be seen that altho it was
necessary to increase the appropria
tion in, the lighting fund $4,300, less
than $2,000 of this amount is for
the present year, the other being a
part of what was needed to take care
of the more than $6,000 worth of
outstanding warrants against this
fund which were carried over from
1921. There„are $3,881.96 in out
standing warrants against the funt',
at the present time and the August
expeness are estimated at approxi
mately $500.
The council also authorized the
advertising for bids on a new stand
pipe.
The appropriation ordinance as
passed by the council follows:
ORDINANCE ~NO. 183
An Ordinance appropriating money
to defray the expenses' and liabilities
of the City of Jamestown, North Da
kota, for the balance of the Fiscal yeaj
ending August 31st, 1922.
Pursuant to a Petition signed by ii
majority of the Legal Voters of the
City of Jamestown, North Dakota,
there is hereby appropriated to defray
the expenses and liability of said Oitjl

STORE AT MELVILLE
DESTROYED BY FIRE
TO BE REBUILT BY OWNER
Melville, Aug. 12.—J. W. Shearer,
whose general merchandise store
was destroyed in the spectacular $15,
000 fire at Melville a week ago
Sunday, has recovered $7,000 insur
ance on his $9,000 loss and will prob
ably rebuild according to latest in
formation. Just when he will start
has not been ascertained but he is
certain that no steps will be taken
before harvest has been completed.
If he does rebuild he will use of his
present site.
The Allen building, in, which the
fire originated, will not be rebuilt.
Word has been received from Bert
Allen that the insurance on his build
ing had been allowed to lapse. Floyd
Hill, former service man, will not re
establish his confectionery business
at Melville. Hill had $2,000^ insur
ance on his stock, but all his papers
were lost in the conflagration, and it
is uncertain if he will recover any
thing.
A phenomena of the fire was that
the big Shearer safe was unharmed
by the fire. When men with acety
lene torches were about to cut the
lock out, Mr. Shearer tried the com
bination and found that both bolt
and shackles were unharmed. Two
gold watches in the safe were wound
up and started running. Papers and
others articles were not damaged.

THE WEEKLY ALERT
MANY GIRLS LEAVE
NORMAL SCHOOL TO
HELPJNHARVEST
Reports From Dickinson Indi
cate—Whole Families Aid
ing in Field in Many In
stances Kitchen Says—
Little Trouble With Labor
ers.
Bismarck, N.D., Aug. 15—(Spec
ial)—Many girls have left the Dick
inson summer normal school to aid
their fathers in harvesting big crops
in the Slope country, according to in
formation given the state board of
administration, J. A. Kitchen, state
federal employment director, said to
day. The girls will drive binders
and aid in the harvest in other ways.
No reports have been received by
Mr. Kitchen indicating that whole
families, 'including all women mem
bers, have gone into the fields to
help with the harvest, as has been
reported from South Dakota. There
are reports, however, to indicate that
farmers are endeavoring to harvest
crops with as little outside help as
possible.
Belief is expressed by Mr. Kitchen
that there will not be a serious short
age of farm labor in North Dakota,
altho there is now need of workers.
One of-the causes of this is the fact
that the harvest and threshing are
coming practically at the same time
"At this time there seems to be s
scarcity of harvest help/' says a bul
letin issued today by the state-feder
al employment service. "In the east
ern part of the state they a recoupling
threshing and harvesting and thus
using an excessive amount of farm
help at the same time, which caus
es the shortage.
"We expect the $5.00 rate for har
vesters, from some Minnesota point?
to any point in North Dakota, to end
Tuesday, the. 15th of August. Thr
harvest laborers using this rate, In
many cases, secured their tickets tc
the central and western parts in
North Dakota, in preference to the
eastern part. This places certain
eastern points pf the state at disad
vantage.
"As far as our own observation and
information -goes, the grain has been
well shocked right behind tfye bind
er. There has been very little, trou
ble with laborers this summer.
"The Federal-State employment
offices at. Fargo, Grand Forks, Bis
marck, Oakes, Devils Lake and Min
ot will operate until September 1st
and possibly longer."

MILL AND ELEVATOR
TO BE FOR ALL THE
PEOPLE, NESTOS SAYS
Bismarck, N.D., Aug., 14—-The
North Dakota Mill and elevator will
be run for the people of North Dako
ta as far as this is humanly possible,
Governor R. A. Nestos announced
on his return here following the
meeting at Grand Fork? in which l,lie
details of the running of the big state
effort were gone into in detail.
The mill and elevator will not be
used to aid any one organization de
clared the governor. One offer from
a farmers organization has already
come to the industrial commission,
offering a rental of four cents a bu
shel for all of the "legs" of the ele
vator that are ready for the stor
age of wheat this year. This offer
will be declined according to the Gov
ernor.
"It is the declared policy of the In
dustrial Commission," said the gov
ernor in discussing the offer, "to
make the elevator the servant of all
the people of the state as far as this,
is humanly possible. It Will not be
used for a part of the people oV for
one organization."
"The board is of the opinion that
it has been fortunate in its election
of the elevator superintendent and of
the mill superintendent, the name of
the latter to be announced if he ac
cepts the position offered to him. He
is at present employed. It was'possi
ble to make the selection of these
two- men unanimous. In fact*., the
meeting at Grand Forks was a very
harmonious one.
"The Industrial Commission is
now on the lookout for a general
manager for the mill and when this
man is found, the three men will be
given every assistance in getting the
mill working and the elevator stor
ing grain that it is possible to give
them."
It is understood to be the inten
tion of the Industrial Commission to
lend its power to the men completing
the structure if freight transporta
tion is at all possible, and make cer
tain that the machinery for the mill
is transported as rapidly as it is de
livered to the roads by the factories.
Some of the machinery is being fab
ricated at distant points and .this may
cause delay even with conditions in
the. northwest normal.
