Most of our exchanges complain thai
there are loo many tranips in their re-
spective towns. Hennessey is also in
on this complaint There are altogether
too many bums in this town. Three of

Under present conditions taxes on
lauds and personal property that are de-
linquent bear heavy penalties until
j Taxes are imposed for the public
f l eneHt and for the common welfare,
and all should, and all are required to
pav according to their property and
1'erhaps there is no tax thai the tax-
| payers so willingly pays as the school
! tax; this because he voluntarily votes it
1 'in himself or a majority of the school
| district does.
As to t hoot her taxes, some are prompt,
others dilatory. Hut few rush to the
Treasurer's otlice until the last few days
I of grace.
Under the law, personal taxes are
carried forward from time to time as
delinquent, frequently from neglect of
the taxpayers and many other causes.
For this reason the laud tax bears more
than its share of county and territorial
taxes. On account of thesu delinquen-
cies the law requires 25 per cent addi-
tional levy to cover ordinary expenses
created by delinquencies so that county
warrants may be kept at par.
There would be no great reason for
this 25 per cent levy if all real and
personal taxes were paid promptly.
All delinquents are thereforo request-
ed to call at the Treasurer's oflice and
save the treasurer and sheriff from a
good ileal of work and the county from
a groat expense.
1 have promised to collect all delin-
i quent taxes put into my hands by war-
rants from the county treasurer, and
| will do as required by law as lar as in
i my power to do so.

Guthrie, Ok., March is The Logan
county grand jury has examined all
local witnesses subpoenaed to testify as
to hoodliup in tho legislature, but has
uncovered nothing that would warrant
an indictment. Several council clerks
and members of tho lower house were
subpoenaed to-day. li is alleged that
witnesses believed to be in possession of
sensational evidence denies all knowl-
edge of corruption The general opin-
ion is that the grand jury will fail to
return a single indictment. The grand
jury will in sesaiou for eight or ton
days before making its report.
Defects in Assessor Law.
Guthrie, O. T., March is The now
law, creat ing tho ottioe of township as
aessor, recently enacted by tho legisla-
ture, is likely to create a general "mix
VUp" relative to tho assessment of tax-
able property, which is now on. It has
been construed that the law becomes
Operative at once. The law does not
say when it becomes effective, but the
presumption is that the law begins to
operate immediately after its approval
and signature by the governor The i
law stops the work of the original asses-
sor. The work should have been coin- '
ineneed March 1, or at least that is tln j
time set b\ the old law. The only
method uuUor the new law that tho as- I
soHsment can be taken i i is for tin1,
trustees, who are ex-olllcio assessors to i
.qualify and do the work, regardless of
what might have been done by the
county assessor This means an ail
ditional expense. It mav bring on liti
gaiion. for county assessors displaced by
the new law may bring action to recover
compensation for the unexpired term ot
It has been discovered that two, ami
possibly three, sect ions of the bill were
omi'.ted in the enrolled bi'l which was
signed bv the governor. The pronosi
,t ion came up tod a \ thai the governor,
president of tho and speaker ol
the house should u• *t together and make
the necessary changes in the law. so
that it will not contlict with tho present
assessment. There is absolutely no
authority for doing such a thing, and
the taking of such action means the es-
tablishment of a precedent which will
.cause pleutv of trouble in the future.
A congressional act holds that the bill
cannot be tampered with at this time.
"While it may seem advisable to change !
