The Kadoka Press (Newspaper) - October 14, 1910, Kadoka, South DakotaVOLUME 111 JACKSON AND STERLING COUNTIES MEANS LOWER TAXES. Our friends tell us that we can not have Jackson County because it will make our taxes so much higher. Now let us see what other counties of the state are pay- ing in county taxes. We find that there are at least four- teen CQunties in the state running on less than we are now paying into the county funds of Stanley County, as shown by the following table: as we stay in old Stanley j there is no hope for lower taxes. It must also be clear to the taxpayer in the original Stan- ley county, north of Lyman, that division is the only hope they have for lower taxes. There can be no doubt but | that the establishing of Jack- son and Sterling counties! will assure lower taxes and nothing else will solve the problem. Everyone admits that our | high taxes are chargeable al-, most entirely to the great’ size of the present county, and it must also be clear that lowa county, which is larger than Lyman, is still to big and offers no relief from our high taxes. Now our friends say it will cost us so much to start Jackson county—for tran- scribing the records, holding the election and building a' court house that we will not be able to bear the burden. But as a matter of fact it cost Tripp county only $l,BOO to transcribe their records and about $350 to hold their special election while they are doing very nicely without any court house at all. As a matter of fact they are not allowed to build a court house until a perma- nent county seat is selected, which can not be done until the next general election which does not come until two years after division. If we believe that the above fourteen counties offer a fair comparison we have a right to expect that Jackson county ought to be able to save enough out of the first year’s taxes at the present rate, after paying the ordi-! nary expenses, to transcribe the records, hold the special election and then build a bet- ter court house than many counties in the state now have.

A small' but very appreciative, attentive, and j interested audience listened to a plain j and unanswerable argument in favor ¦ of three-county division. The buga-' boo of “IncreaaedJExpense” was sum- marily routed and chased into its hole with no prospecte remaining for it to make any further impression on the minds of those who heard Mr. Grang- er’s remarks upon that subject.—ln- terior Index.

It will be a great surprise to many who came here from Charles Mix county to learn that wr e are paying $28,472.- 29, or $10,099.77 more than the people ofCharles Mixare • paying for a very efficient county government of their own. They will be convinc- ed that ifCharles Mixcounty can get along very nicely on , $18,372.52 Jackson county ought to be able to run its own county government on a like amount, which would mean a reduction in our tax- es of about one-third.

KADOKA, SOUTH DAKOTA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1910 I The Bad River News says: “Letour ¦ friends of the north use good sense in this Matter.” They are Bro. Dur- kee and are going to get Sterling county and lower taxes. - “There is no use talking about four counties at the present time.”—Bad River News. Nobody is talking about four coun- ties. Everyboby is talking and are going to vote for two new counties— Jackson and Sterling. According to the last issue of the Bad Riyer News, published at Philip, everyone who does not favor the pet plan of the Philip division are “blith- ering idiots.” Bro. Durkee says, if lowa county is defeated, and it will be beyond doubt, that it willbe be- cause of the enyious, narrow-minded and misguided voters. Say, Mr. voter how do you like the catagory in which the News editor has placed you. Some newspapers, like a great many people, have a faculty of not being able to "open their mouth without putting their foot in it.” Recently the Bad River News published an ar- ticle from the Capa Hustler favoring division of Lvman county and setting off Jones county, a territory of 28 townships or only one more than Jackson county has and last week again they say, “There is no reason in maintaining a one-county seat for a territory as large as some of the eastern states.” In order to be con- sistent with his own editorials the editor of the Bad River News must oppose the organization of lowa coun- ty and support the propositions of Jackson and Sterling. Only in the success of setting off Jackson and Sterling counties is it possible to get a county seat for a territory smaller than some of the eastern states. lowa county is considerable larger than a number of the eastern states and in some cases larger than two of them put together. Will the News be con- sistent with its own expressed con- victions and oppose the lowa county proposition. NUMBER 24 Farm Land IN Stanley County SKROVE BROS. LAND CO. Kadoka, South Dakota.
