Discount Question.
While only a conditional finding has
been made relative to the discount on
taxes allowed Sheriff Taylor, this is a
very Important feature nn.i ts likely
‘ to result in a very interesting suit In
f the courts. The discount on the 13*15,

fc.heriff Taylor amounted to $13,888.43
and that amount is held against him

If the courts hold that the ex-sheriff
■was not entitled to this discount the
funds of Ohio county will profit to
the extent of $13.888 43. There Is no
dispute relative to the discount re
ee.ved by the sheriffs now in office,
the law having been amended, allow
Ing them credit for the discount. The
discount is held subject to adjudica
(tfc n py the courts because of the fact
that the Info Dark May. while hp was

settlement as of June 30. 1912.
The Hera marked Interest collected
on taxes amounting to $1.3(3 67 van
In the hands of the supreme court of
appeals of this state for a decision
»s to who that Interest rightfully be
longed. I at that time was of the
opinion that was an extra compensa
lion for extreme efforts in collecting
delinquent tax and I spent every cent
of that interest to make my collections
of all tax charged against me In this
county the greatest of any sheriff
proceeding me and I accomplished
that end at least for last year 1 col
lected ninety nine and throj-fourth*
per cent of all taxes charged against
me. The supreme court of appeals
decided this case in January of 1912
and the different public funds were
given the credit immediately upon no
tice of the supreme court of appeals,
this amount being credited six moths
before the audit via completed but
the auditors have made no tnetlon of
that fact.
With respect to the Item "dlscrep
ancles In the tax books ntid settle
ments of 1909 and 1910 taxes" amount
ing to $042.90 I wish to say that It
would take considerable time to de
termine the accuracy or inaccuracy
of this item, but It will Is- looked Into
and If found that the auditors were
correct there will be no hesitancy on
my part In making that amount good.
With respect to the sensational
charge In last evenings News of me
pocketing the Jury costs amounting
to $362 which the sheriff collects for
the empanneling of a circuit Jury. I
wish to say when Mr. Julius Scherr.
one of the accountants first came to
Imts, Mr Welch my chief deputy
asked Mr. Scherr the question “What
should he done with these Jury costs
nnd he replied It should ko to the
credit of the county and Mr. Welch
In my presence turned to Mr Scherr
with the remark that his books
showed that money to be credited to
an account styled “Jury funds'' and
that he would go immediately to liTa
books and transfer the account to the
credit of Ohio county and Mr Scherr
hit mod lately said '<) no. do not do
that, we are here to audit you ajid i
would not make that credit now, but
later" la them anythin* In tha’ can
vrrsatlon that would Indlcatn that I
Intended putting that money In my
pocket? but the Jury costs on my
books were credited to tNe county ns
of June 30, 1912 nnd appear In the
1912 settlement.
In regard to this Item of |R0o fines
hy courts not turned In. I wish to
say that part of this IVin was never
collected by me at all, but by John
I. Ktnghorn, the clerk of the circuit
court, and was not reported to the
state auditor, hut turned over to mo
June r. 1912 Three hundred dollar*
of the $f»uO was a bond forfeiture paid
ln*o my office hy Mr Kdwln Kline,
attorney for a client of his, and there
being no report mndo on this forfeit

In that account $100. called the tax
commissioner's sudltcrs' attention to
the fact that th>* existed In my
hooks, and there being no amount

fice for that amount, wo were able
to trace It out that way. and had this
been reported as other fines were re
ported, tt would have been pall to
the state long ago, and was paid In
as soon as the auditor a attention was
railed to this matter by Mr, Welch
nnd was paid In to the state treasury
