Dgir Report: —In your last issue wag a letter signed .''Tax payer," Wherein I am indirect ly charged with the crÿne of falsifying the records ça the Roar'd of County Commissioners by not publishing their proceed ings correctly. The official record of the Com missioners proceedings- are public property, aryl can always be seen at the Courthouse by any citizen who desires to inspect them. It is therefore a very easy matter to compare the re port published in the Free Press with the official record. If they do not tally the matter ought to be investigated by the grand jury. This much for the infor mation of the public. For the information of your correspondent I will state that according to the terms of my contract with the county, the "copy" of the Commissioner's proceedings is furnished me for publication by the Clerk of the Board. I am therefore not in a position to explain errors, should any occur in the published re port, and will gladly investigate when such $.re alleged. The object of publishing the Commissioner's proceedings is to invite publicity ç,nd investiga tion on the part of the tax-pay ers, an,d I am glad to notice that they are read with such a keen and vigilant eye. Fraternally, A. F- Parker. We have made the comparison, Brer Parker, and find the offic ial record to contain an item— C. 8. Gregory, fees $1448.59 —which (strange to say) ap peareth not in the Free Press. In the above communication, tb$ smooth A. F. it seems to us. rather broadly insinuates that Mr. Case is the guilty man, as he says "The copy is furnished me by the Clerk of the Board. I am therefore not in a position to ex plain errors." Now we have known Mr. Case for over live years, and have never heard of his having been connecte« with shady transactions—we do not believe him capable of such an "error." It seems strange to us why, if this omission was an error, fate j decreed that the largest bill in j the whole lot should he selected ; for the lucky one. It must have j been one of those singular oc currences which no one can ex plgjp We agree with you that the matter should be brought before the grand jury; where, no doubt, it will come off as a full-blown, white-washed error. There are various theories here, as to why this $1448.59 item failed to appear in the Free Press. Some think Mr. Case uninten- j tion.ally overlooked it, in writ ing up the copy, while others en tertain the hypothesis that it carelessly occurred in the Free Press office, while the Edit or lay in the insensible, Rip Van-Winklean condition, in Elk City. However, all are agreed upon the naked frozen fact, that it failed to appear in the official paper of the County. The searching glances of "A keen and vigilant eye," when cast in the proper direction, have been known to cause consterna tion in the camp of evil-doers. WHAT'S THE OTHER SIDE? Cottonwood, Oct. 12, 1893. The Gold Miner speaks editor ially for the Sheriff, and says: Xt is true that he collected $25, jJ cenge p. 0 v m the Denver saloons, $25 ' and then tries to put the respon. sibility on someone else. Does the Gold Miner know that the 8th of last November was the first election field at Denver? There (s roorp for doubt as to whether the sgloons at Denver shquld have paid $25 or $75 be fore the last election, jbut since the first of last Jan. there is no question about the matter. We will now ask the question of the Miner (as it speaks for the Sher iff) in another way ns it says: "The Sheriff did not feel like assuming the responsibility of changing what seemed to be con ceded as law." If there had •been to exceed 150 votes cast ih Cottonwood «nd Mt. Idaho at our last election, would the Sheriff have went oç collecting $75 at those places instead of $125 as the law would require, because his predecessor had only collected $75 according to the requirements of the law during his term of office? Did the Sheriff notify the Commissioners of this before or after they had been notified through the Re port? We will wait with pa tience to see if the Sheriff makes good the loss the county sus tains through the jicensf- busi ness at Denver. There were two saloons there then, which would make the amount for the last three quar ters $300. Taxpayer. j j ; j j REUTER VILLE. Telchek Creek, Oct, 11, 1893.
