Senator Beveridge is an act of inconsistency. In the United states and especially in Indiana we do not expect All our Public men to think alike on All questions. First and Foremost we expect them to be True to their convictions. At one Point the president and or. Beveridge have disagreed at All others they Are in Accord. The two Are United in support of the Roose i velt policies and the measures asked of Congress by or. Taft will have no More Loyal and efficient advocate than our senior senator. men Are United moreover in support of Tariff reduction and a Tariff commission. Many utterances of the president might be quoted to show How he has spoken and acted in favor of lower duties. Even the Winona speech opposed the wrong basis of the Woolen schedules. Their judgment differed As to the redemption of the party pledges in the Payne Bill. It is an honest difference and an honest difference of opinion does not estrange or antagonize honest men. These two Are not the Only republicans who do not agree on that Point. Every Republican Tariff Bill that has Ever been enacted was voted against by some republicans. In their youth senator Allison and senator Cullom were both insurgents. We can not All think alike on All details of legislation. If we could we should be manikins not men. President Taft did what he thought right in signing and supporting the Payne Bill senator Beveridge did what he thought right in voting against it. Does any one seriously put Forward the notion that private convictions Are to be abandoned at the crack of the party lash the people of Indiana do not want to censure a Man for doing what he thought was right. Last Vestage of obligation wiped out today. Is opinion of Wlasny Farmers regarding coming session county Council met Lasics Day feb. 10. And after conference with auditor it and com missioners the necessary Money was appropriated a county now has a clean slate. Saturday s evening news. Considering several Large expend sedges tond Imi Caas reported by state Board of tax 40 millions have been added to tie duplicate in three years nearly third of million in Fayette county that had Essaf cd before. Indianapolis feb. 5.�?according to the report made to the state Board of tax commissioners by the county assessors of the state sequestered property amounting to $38,781,820, was unearthed and placed on the tax duplicates by the assessors and boards of county commissioners through chartered accountants during the three years ending december Loi. Nine counties in that time unearthed taxable amounting to More than a million dollars in each county. The largest amount was reported from Cass county by assessor Henry g. Warrick who unearthed ,620,371. Allen county by William Eggeman came second with $3,840,035. Wells by John French was third with $3,158,326. The following counties made no reports Jay Ohio Posey Rush Scott and st. Joseph. The list of other counties All of which have made report is Given in the report. Fayette county is shown to have restored to the duplicate in the period named the Large sum of $316,805. Iione just differences. It is characteristic of republicans to have ideas and to adhere to them when they believe they Are right though in doing so they May oppose the beliefs of members of their own party. This has been characteristic of the party since its birth As every student of political history knows. Seward Chase Sumner and other intellectual giants of Early Republican Days had their differences and they were strenuous ones too but Tho party waxed Strong just the same and continued to do its great work for humanity. But that was before the new school of criticism came into Vogue. Another new idea is that where men of prominence differ on one Point they must necessarily differ on All Points and become antagonistic to each other. A Case in Point is that of president Taft and senator Beveridge As to the latter s vote on the Tariff Bill. The matter is admirably presented in the following editorial in the Indianapolis Star today a strange concept if it were sincere would be the idea that to believe both in president Taft and in a Otice of settlement. In the matter of the estate of Caroline Martin deceased. In the Fayette circuit court March term 1910. Notice is hereby Given that William r. Porter administrator with will annexed of the estate of Caroline Martin deceased has presented and filed his account and vouchers in final settlement of said estate and that the same will come up for examination and action of said circuit court on the 14th Day of March 1910, the same being the 7th judicial Day of the March term 1910, of said court at which time All heirs creditors and legatees of said estate Are required to appear in said court and show cause if any there be Why said account vouchers and distribution should not be approved. Witness the cleric and Seal of said Fayette circuit court at Connersville Indiana this 3rd Day of february 1910. Seal. We. E. Sparks clerk Fayette circuit court. Feb.9.16 notice of administration. Estate of William g. Starr deceased. Notice is hereby Given that the undersigned has been duly appointed by the Payette circuit court of Payette county in the state of Indiana administer matrix of the estate of William g. Starr late of said county deceased. Said estate is supposed to be solvent. Theresa Starr administer matrix. Attest we. E. Sparks clerk Fayette circuit court. Dated january 26th, 1910. 2feb st Tures made by Fayette county in the last few years its ability to reduce its debt and yet lower its tax rate five cents each time two years in succession has won wide commendation both at Home and abroad. The last reduction was last year yet the news is ready to Lay before its readers today the glad tidings that Fayette county does not owe a Dollar and has a snug sum in Bank ample to meet current expenses until this year s tax collections Are available. To Day the county Council was in session and in conference with the auditor and Board of commissioners. It was found that there were of county funds on hand $18,750.75, not including Money collected since the last Semi annual settlement. While the bonded indebtedness of the county had been wiped out some time ago the county owed the congressional principal school fund $9,120 and the permanent endowment school fund $3,380, making a total of $12,500. On this interest had accumulated amounting to $168.75, making a total indebtedness to Date of $12,cgs.75. It was decided by the officials to give Fayette county a clean slate by wiping this debt off the Hooks so the county Council made the no ossuary appropriation and the thing was soon done. Deducting the $12,068.75 irom the balance on hand of $18,750.7 8, there still remains in the Treasury $6,-082.03. Besides this some $1,200 received on delinquent tax etc., since november making a total available fund of $7,282.03 or ample for current expenses until the current tax collections Are available in june. This news ought to be a cheering Valentine for the taxpayers of Fayette county. In this connection it is pertinent to say that but three counties in the whole state have a lower tax rate than Fayette county while none has the same and All the rest have higher county rates some of chem double or More. There is no better advertisement for a county than a Low tax rate. It is what the Farmer wants what the merchants wants what the manufacturer wants what the Home owner poor or Rich wants. The Public owes a vote of thanks to their Public servants for this last proof of Progress toward economical government.
