Call and Get My Prices which are As Low as the Lowest. A. C. ZEMANEK. * * is What It Costs to Conduct the Offices Of Stanley County. During the past few weeks we have published figures taken from the sworn reports of the auditors and treasurers of the various counties to which they were credited, in compar- ison with the amounts raisedin Jack- son county, and by these figures the “bugaboo” of higher taxes and in- creased expense, put forth by the advocates of the lowa county propo- sition, has been completely put too route. The figures quoted are matters of record and can not be disputed. The Philip fellows realized they had hold of the wrong end of the poker and let go, and have now switched to the ar- gument that the expense of conduct- ing the offices of three counties would be considerable more than it is for the present county of Stanley. Now that appears plausible on the face of it, but ' taking the records of other counties of practically the same size as Jack- son or Sterling we find that the of- ficers in those counties are attending to the duties of their offices alone, without any deputies, and are receiv- ing from SSOO to SI6OO a year less than the officers of Stanley county. When the county goverments of Jackson and Sterling are established not only will great savings be made in the salaries of the various office!s but it willdo away with the paying of from one to eight deputies and assistants in each office. We do not wish you tv take our word for it but refer you to the quar- terly reports of Stanley county and Campbell county (a county of practi- cally the same area as Jackson or Sterling but having a larger assessed valuation and a larger population than either ot the proposed counties and for that reason pay larger salaries than would be received in either Jack- son or Sterling.) Taking the quar- terly report of these two counties for the first three months of the present year, or the quarter ending March 31, 1910, we find that Stanley county paid for county auditor, deputies and ex- pense $889.80, while the same office cost Campbell county only $200.00. The treasurer’s office in this county cost $1,327.15 for the three months and for the same time Campbell paid only S2OO. The register of deeds office in Stanley pulled $828.80 out of the taxpayers pockets and Campbell dug rp 7. '> for their register. Our county judge drew SSOO as his share and the county judge of Campbell i county had to be content without $125 for his three months service. The superintendent of schools of this county cost us $659.43 and cost Cam- pbell $136.00; while the office of states’ attorney added $197.53 to the expense account of Stanley county, Camp- bell county escaped with only’ $175.00. The great size of Stanley countv is clearly shown by the fact that for the first three months of this year the i sheriff, deputy and bailiffs of this i county drew from the strong box $1,645.28, and the sheriff, deputy and bailiffs of Campbell county were forc- ed to worry along on only SIIO.BO for ! the same length of time. From these figures ir will be seen that to maintain i the offices for our county for the first three months of 1910 it cost the tax- payers of Stanley county $6,347.99, and Campbell county only had to pay $1,444.15 for the same offices for the same period, or Stanley county- had to pay over four and one-third times as much asdid Campbell county . Under the assessment of 1910, Jack- son county has a valuation of consid- erable more tl.an one-fourth of that of Stanley county and therefore has to pay over one-fourth the expenses of the county. In the above compari- sons it is clearly demonstrated that Jackson county can pay the same sal- aries as are paid by Campbell county andyet save a large amount of mon- ey from whut they are now paying for the officers of Stanley county. Does the Location of the County Seat Cause Our High Taxes. Tne lout issue of the Philip Review attempts to place the cause of our high taxes to the fact that our county seat is located in the extreme eastern end of the county and in this manner attempts to dodge the fact that our high taxes are chargeable almost en- tirely to the extreme size of the county. If the location of the countv seat is the cause of high taxes why is it that Charles Mix with her seat of government at Wheeler, an inland town in the Missouri river breaks and on the west line of the county, is able to get along on (18,372.52 a year or over ten thousand dollars less than the amount assessed against Jackson ( county? THE KADOKA PRESS. KADOKA, SOUTH DAKOTA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1910 Persona! Abuse Istead of Arguments Used by lowa Promoters. The promoters of the lowa county proposition seem to have lost sight of the question of county division and arc putting in their time in abuseing the people who are opposed to them. The people of Philip are wellschooled in the motto: “Allthings must come to Philip,” and apparently believe that every one in the county must bow their knee to Philip and do the bidding of the few “gentlemen” who reside in that burg. The fact that Jackson and Sterling counties are sure winners is a proposition that is hard for our neighbors on the north to swallow. Philip cannot dictate to the entire western portion of Stanley county, as the people of that city- have found out to their sorrow. The calling of the people of Jackson and ' Sterling county “narrow-minded, en-1 vious and prejudiced voters whoi would cut off their noses to spite their I own face” by the Philip papers has I killed whatever friendly feeling our people may have had for that town. Not an argument can be found in fa- ' or of lowa county and this of course vexes our excellent friends. We said not an argument could be found for lowa county. Of course we did not mean that, because Philip wants to be a county seat, and in their minds ; that should be argument enough lor I anybody. The latest personal attack on our citizens was in the* Bad River News of last week in which editor Durkee dubs Attorney A. G. Granger, of this I city, an ivorydomed student of Black- stone, and prominent only because he is the only attorney in our city. Mr. Granger is one of Jackson county’s most ardent workers and that of course is the cause of Durkee’s attack of cholic, although he bases his reason on Mr. Granger’s good natured re- mark that Philip was located on the banks of Bad River in a mud-hole. The News editor seems to think that the remark was an insult and in- tended as such, but he loses sight of the fact that over two y«ars ago after Philip had invited delegates from all parts of the county to meet with them and discuss the division matter and after the delegates had expressed themselves as opposed to two county division, as advocated by Philip, R. I A. Bielski grabbed a big hunk of Bad i River Gumbo and slammed it into the j face of Philip’s visitors in his remarks ; that he did not believe the expres- sions made by the delegates were sin- cere or that they represented the true feelings of the communities that instructed ;nd sent them to the meet- ing. Not content with this insult to the visitors in one meeting Mr. Wal- pole, Sr. a few moments later in his address said that the part of Stanley county south of the base line (Jack- son countv) was fit for nothing but a “nanny goat pasture” and through- out his remarks referred to us as the “nanny goat pasture.” If the News editor willrefer back to that time he will find that none of the newspapeis devoted a half column or so to per- sonal attacks upon Mr. Bielski or Mr. Walpole. That tho delegates expressed the true sentiments of the localities they represented has been proven this year and in the present campaign and be- cause Philip could not be made to understand that the people of West- ern Stanley county would not stand for their two county proposition they now realize that they are hopelessly up against it. The territory south of the base line may be a “nanny goat pasture,” yet it is a valuable one, for the proposed Jackson county has only about one-fifth the territory of Stan- ley county and has over one-fourth the assessed valuation of the entire county. The lowa proposition is defeated and the Philip bunch know it. but are trying to get a few votes in favor of the of the proposition bv abuseing the Jackson and Sterling county di- visions and the men who are boosting them. All that is asked of you Mr. Voter is that you study the various division questions seriously and then vote for the on* that means lower taxes and more improvements in your locality and there is no doubt whatever that you willmark your ballot "jes” for Jackson; ‘•yes” for Sterling; and "no” for lowa.

PAID ADVERTISEMENT COUNTY OPTION MEANS FORCED PROHIBITION If itis the purpose of the sponsors of the COUNTY OPTION law to furnish the authority for voting a City, Town or Township “dry”where the sentiment is opposed to the high license policy then the COUNTY OPTION plan is unnecessary, for the voters al- ready have that right under our present ideal LOCAL OPTION law. If it is the purpose of those who are advocating COUNTY OPTION, to pass a law that willprevent license in a community where the voters are opposed to prohibition (and this is their purpose), then COUNTY OPTION means ’ ' Forced Prohibition South Dakota has one of the best option laws as yet devisd. To change from LOCAL OPTION to COUNTY OPTION would mean a cessation of our present right to local self government. COUNTY OPTION is a trick measure that cloaks the real in- tent of those who advocate it. COUNTY OPTION means PROHIBITION, BLIND PIGS, BOOT-LEGGERS, Loss in Revenue, and Hign Taxes. It means “graft” to the fixers instead of revenue to the people. VOTE NO J2* Chamberlain Sanitarium and Hospital The only thoroughly equipped sanitarium and hos- pital in the northwest.
