Green Trading Stamps Fre oa Ever Casii PisrcSie., " The finance committee of the boari of" Supervisors, which has in hand the campaign' for the proposed special las of Wcfentson the $100 for county pu' poses for a ter.n of six years, has is sued a circular in support of ttie pro posed tax measure as a means of rais ing revenue for the county. The cir cular showg the valuation, state tax, county and special county tax, town tax, school tax, road and bridge tax, and municipal tax levied In the county since 1875, for the years 1873, 1880, 1885, 1890. 1890. 1900, 1905, and 190S. The circular calls attention to the fact that while other taxes, such as the school tax, state tax and municipal tax, have increased greatly siuce 1875,. the tax for county purposes is now but $7,734.17 compared with . $70,074.01 in 1875. In the same period the tax for school purposes has in creased from $8C.044.!0 to $319,3-15.7: state taxes have increased from $30,-450.33-. to $32,471.02, and municipal taxes have increased from $72,074.27 to $191,210.29. I-adlratea the Deficit. The circular states that the cost rf operating the county is about $100,00'j a year, and the tax of 75 cents for county purposes" brings a revenue of about $78,000. There is a floating debt of $135,noO. The supervisors, at the time it was decided to place the special tax proposition on the ballot, reached an understanding that half of the tax, if provided, should apply to the debt, and half to meet current expenses. It was estimated that this course would pay the cost of operation and also pay off the floating debt in the term of six years of. the tax. The figures given in the circular were compiled from the records at the court house. I THE WEATHER o o Geaerally fair tonight anal Sundays ooler ton I lit. ' ' J. SI. SHICRIEK, Local Forecaster.
