Upon ' you falli*the burden of taxation, you are the heaviest taxuavers and upon i your votes depends the success or ' failure of the cutting off and forming . the new counties of Jackson and Sterl- ; ing. We are going to try to prove to you that Jackson county can be or- ganized and the bussness of the new county conducted upon the same amount or less taxes as are now paid from this portion in to the coffers of Stanley county. While in a direct way county division means a smail reduction in taxes, it means a big re- duction in the indirect tax upon our people who have to visit the present countv seat or have to attend court. County division means that the money paid by you for the building of roads and bridges will be spent in yoi.r own territory and not for build- ing bridges elsewhere. SIZE OF THE NEW COUNTIES Some objections have been raised and the statement made that Jackson or Sterling counties would be too small. Now as a matter of fact in our own state east of the Missouri River there are but one-fourth of the counties larger than either Jackson or Sterling counties, while it the entire state of lowa there are but two counties hav- ing an area greater than either Jack- son or Sterling counties. If you will take a map and compare the counties of our neighboring states you will find that where land values are high and the soil the best, the counties are all as small and in most cases con- siderable smaller than the proposed Jackson or Sterling counties. Why then should we publish U- the outside world a lie? The land in these two counties is as good as the sun ever shown on, but with the present sized county we tell to the world that the territory within itsboundriesis worth- less. BAD LANDS COMPARED Someone who in deeply interested! ?) in your welfare will perhaps tell you that Jackson county contains too much Bad Lands, and that these so called bad lands are worthless and will be a drag upon the new county. Now let us look into this matter a little. As nearly as can be figured out from reliable information Jackson county does not contain over five sections of the bad lands walls. Doesn’t look as though the entire 27 townships of Jackson county was bad lands. Now let us see if the bad lands are worthless. Belvidere township, one of the best in the great empire of Stanley has an assessed valuation of (271,198.- 00, under the 1910 assessment, while for the same year Interior township, in the very heart of the Bad Lands has an assessed valuation of (276,842.- 00, or a balance in favor of the Bad Lands township of (5,644. In answer to this same argument we might call your attention to the fact that the proposed Jackson coun- ty has an assessed valuation of one- fourth of the entire valuation of Stan- ley county while the territory com- prising Jackson county is only one- fifth of that of Stanley county. With one-fourth the valuation and one-fifth the territory it is easily un- derstood that Jackson county is one of the richest portions of the pres- ent county. GROWTH OF JACKSON COUNTY In 1909 the assessed valuation of Jackson county was (1,692,000 and in 1910 the valuation had increased to (2,033,735 or there has been in the past year a total of (311,735 added to our tax list and every reason to be- lieve that a greater increase willbe shown for next year. RUNNING EXPENSES For the tint six months of the pres- ent year it has cost Stanley county (60,519,27 to conduct the business of this county. The share of this amount assessed to Jackson countv is (12,(2).- 82, while Campbell county, a county of practically the same area as the proposed Jackson county, conducted their business for the same six months on (7,843.88; or Campbell county con- ducted her business for the past six months on (766.44 less than than the taxpayers of Jackson county paid for their share of the running expen- ses of Stanley county for the same’ period. Taking the same counties for the same period we find that Stan- ley county paid in sheriff fees (2,341.- 77, and Campbell county was com- pelled to dig up for their sheriff only (166.36. Some difference between the two oounniea. Campbell county paid their sheriff only (165.86 for the six months, and Jackson county pay as their share to the sheriff for the same time (835.43. In these two Comparisons above we have shown that had Jackson county been under a separate government * K * * they would have saved $8,553.46 for the first six months of 1810. A FEW FACTS ABOUT OUR DEBT Another objection which we have heard raised is that the amount of in- debtedness Jackson county would be compelled to assume from Stanley county would swamp the new county with debt. Such is not the case. The share of the indebtedness that Jackson would have to assume would, in round numbers, amount to not over $20,000. With the present valuation and assessment we raise in Jackson county each year $3,050.60 in the sink- ing fund, which, even if the valuation of the county did not increase, would in seven or eight years pay off the in- debtedness and pay the interest on the entire amount without increasing our taxes. At the time Butte county was divid- ed and Perkins county created, the new county had an assessed valua- tion on only $896,954.00 and the debt they assumed from the parent county amounted to $37,778.86. With a valu- ation of less than one-half that of Jackson county they assumed a debt of practically twice that neces- sary for Jackson county to assume—- or for every thousand dollars assess- ed valuation that Perkins county had they had over four times the amount of indebtedness Jackson county would have. Yet Perkins count/ is perfect- ly contented in the manner they are handling their indebtedness and are making rapid strides in paying their obligations. We are unable to understand why this indebtedness proposition should even be considered, for even if Stan- ley county is not divided we have to pay the same porportion of the debt. The bulk of the indebtedness which Jackson county would assume is in the form of warrants on which we pay seven per cent interest. If Jackson county was organized it could be bonded to pay these warrants and the bonds placed at three or four per cent, thereby saving the taxpayers nearly half the interest they are now paying. County Division Meeting A mass meeting willbe held at the Opera House to-night t > which every- one interested in the setting off of Jackson county is earnestly request- ed to attend. The committees ap- pointed will report the work they have done and give an outline of the campaign to be carried on. Be a Jackson County Booster and turn out to this meeting. A letter was received the first of week by A. G. Granger from the Mil- waukee Exhibit car in regard to the exhibit sent them from this locality, which we publish below: Ethan, S. D., Oct. 3, 1910. A- G. Granger. Esq., Kadoka. S. D. Dear Sir: We received the ex- hibits all O. K. Friday p. m. and have same in our Exhibit Car, and in be- half of our Immigration Ag’t., Mr. Geo. B. Haynes, of Chicago, want to thank you kindly for this exhibit. It certainly is an exceptionally fine one and a credit to your county. I remain yours resp., O. L. Tibeets. Our next Representative, C. L. Mil- lett, is making an active campaign. He is considered an ideal man for the place: his residence of over twentv years in Stanley county, familiarity with the people and conditions of the county, high character and excellent habits, integrity and known honesty make him the right man for the place.

Ryan, nominee of the Democratic Party for County Treas- urer, the subject of this sketch, was born at lowa Falls, in the good old state of lowa, where he was reared to manhood. Being of the progres- sive type, that blaze the way for fu- ture generations, ambitious and in- dustrious, after completing a course in the Cedar Rapids, lowa, Business College in which he graduated with high honors and hearing of and real- izing the great possibilities that a- bound in the young state which is now his home, he turned his face westward, and for a number of years has been prominently identified with the business and farming interests of Stanley county. While at the pres- ent time engaged in the very import- ant position of accountant in Bank of Midland, he in common withmany others has undergone the jovs and sorrows, hardships and pleasantries incident to the holding down of a homestead north of Midland. In June l£o9 he quit the life known to single blessedness, and be- came a Benedict, being united in marriage to Grace A. Orris, and but a short time age, beeam( the proud father of a bright littledaughter, ard this happy family are nicely situated in a very' commodious cottage which they have recently erected in Mid- land. The office of county treasurer is most important in many respects of any office in county affairs, and real izing this, the Democrats selected Mr. Ryan as the one man pre-eminently fitted, both in book-keeping, educa- tion and sound, safe, judgment to hold this important trust. It seems indeed that nature itself has fitted Frank Ryan for this important posi- tion, as his knowledge of bookkeep- ing, and his large experiences in bus- iness and people have made it seem that there oould not have been or can be any wiser or better selection made. His economical, conservative and varied business experiences gathered
