Seml-Annual Report to the. Tax . Payers. ! or. Clatsop County. To the tax payer of .Clatsop County, Oregon: -c lt again becomes the duty of yoyr.coan ty officials to present to you the "semi annual account of their stewardship from January 1 to June SO, 1895, which is given in aeiau in xne cerunea statements oi Mr. F. I. Dunbar, County Clerk,;' Mr. B. L. Wurd, Treasurer, and (Mr. J. W. Hare, Sheriff. With these reports you 'wlll have had financial statements for the past year, and since the present county officials as- summed their duties. Taken together with the former report we find that on July 1, 1894, Clatsop county's outstanding warrants as per expert's report were 373,728.22; cash In general fund, 11,751.37; amount outstanding warranis exccs of cash, 371,976.85; warrants outstanding on July 1, 1895, J8AS80.7S; caah in the general fund, 116,669.93; amount of outstanding warrants excess of cash, (07,316.23; net re duction in outstanding warrants paid, $4,660.62; . Interest warrants redeemed (statement December, 1894), tl.396.77; Interest warrants redeemed (statement January, 1895), 86,034.40; amounts trans ferred to state fund, 8348.80; net gain dur ing pust year, S12.4b0.61. The present total liabilities and resources are fully shown by the county clerk's report (You will observe by the financial statement that there Is 89,540.26 held in the General Fund subject to pay warrants that have been called; the balance of cash In treasury, mostly received from sheriff June 29th, will pay all outstanding warrants up to July 1st, 1892.) Since my last report the county court received through the attorneys of ex- Sheriff H. A. Smith, who had sued this county for 816,636 for collection of delin quent taxes for 1893, a proposition to set tle his claim provided the county would my him 83,300, to be repaid to the county out of his costs, due from delinquent taxpayers. Upon the advice of Messrs. J. H. Smith and J. Q. A. Bowlby, the county attorneys, and the county court, wishing to relievo many Innocent credit ors of Smith, and believing t for the best Interests of the county, decided to ac cept the proposition. , We found a few days later that Smith had absconded. As near es can be learned, the. claim he sued for will not cost the county over $2,500. The exact amount can not 'be ascertained until the delinquent taxes assigned the county are paid. . ... The failure of the last legislature to amend the law requiring the sheriff to levy upon each separate tract or lot of land sold for taxes continues to be not only a great and unnecessary expense to the delinquent tax payers, but results In actual loss to the county, especially on suburban platted property.' This and er roneous assessments prior to' 1894, we find, hug reduced our assets from tax sale purchases about 20 per cent. The salary and fee law enacted by the last legislature Is an outrage upon the tax payers, and will cause much trivial litlgutlon at the expense of the county. This law, which will be found on page 82, laws of 1980, reads as follows: "Sec. 8. It shall be the duty of the several clerks of the circuit and county counts In the state at the time of the suit, action, or proceeding for the enforce ment of private rights, including appeals, writs of review and proceedings In pro bate. Including petitions for probate of wills, for letters of administration and complaints In will contest, action or pro ceedings, to exact from the plaintiff or moving party In said suit, action or pro ceeding, the sum of ten dollars In all cases where the amount. In controversy exceeds the sum of Ave hundred dollars, and Ave dollars In all cases where tne amount In controversy Is Ave hundred dollars or lees, except In probate pro ceedings, where ten dollars shall be re-, quired to be paid before the filing of any petition hereinafter mentioned." This will greatly reduce the fees for merly paid Into the county, and civil cases will often cost the county several times the amount received. The law is apparently in the interest of those who bring suits, and Bhould be repealed. The county court has called the atten tion of the road supervisors to the neces sity of immediately repairing the several county roads, so that the work -may be performed during dry weather. There has ulready been apportioned to the road districts and the city of Astoria this year the sum of $6,642.06. By the 1st of August we can appropriate 82,899.13, the balance collected for the road fund. This will give each distrist nearly one-half more, to be added to the amounts of their for mer apportionments. The city of Astoria paid and receives nearly two-thirds of ihese sums, to expend on her streets. It is Impossible to buijd or improve In a satisfactory manner about 222 miles of roads In this heavily timbered county with $13.00 per mile raised by the 2-mlll levy and road poll-tax. The question then is, What are we go ing to do? Nearly every mari, woman and child in the county, every politician In the city and county, were discussing be fore the last election the Jmportant ques tion of better roads and how to obtain them; and every newspaper In the city was demanding good roads. The county court has faithfully endeavored to fulfill every promise, has traveled over the county at the request of the taxpayers and cltlesns to give Information regarding roads, and I ara convinced that tne only nrnnHpA,hlA WAV to build ITOOd TOUdS in this county, where so much land is owned by non-residents, has been fully explain ed. The means suggested has worked well In other states, and if the citizens of Clatsop prefer to Usten tc- obstruction ists who want the county for a stock range, they will not have any roads fit to travel In winter, and only themselves to blame. Possibly some of the latter can offer some more satisfactory solution of this important question; if so, the peo ple In general would no doubt like to hear from them. The matter of more room In which to do the business of this county Is abso lutely necessary. The present court house was built 42 years ago. It is not only unsafe and very Inconvenient, but It Is a disgrace to Clatsop county and the poorest court house in this state. A four or five mill tax for two years. with $35,000 receivable from property held by the county under tax sale, will con struct a building that you will be proud of. In conclusion I would call your atten tion to the complete reports of the coun ty clerk, sheriff and treasurer, which ful ly show the financial condition of this county. 1 hope this will receive the com mendation from tha people that much careful and honest work entitles them to. Some complaints have been made about the amount of clerical help employed In these offices, but "every reasonable per son knows that correct accounts cannot be kept without sufficient and competent assistants; Much extra clerical help has been caused by the purchase and re demption of delinquent property. The extra cot Is Anally repaid the county In penalties collected. Respectfully submitted. J. II. D. GRAY. County Judge C. R F. P. UNION NOTICE.
