Our County Debt.
"The finafitial condition of our
county has been fairly and plain
ly laid before the voters of the
county. They cannot plead ig
noranco of the fact that our county
ntffchis time is over 100,000 in
debt. If they will carefully exi
amino the exhibit -given July
1885, aud the one given January,
1886, they will discover that our
county debt under the fpresent
-.administration has increased,
.about 49,003.44. We cbalange
our cotcm to give a showing that
will make any material change in
their favor. Jt is certainly his
duty to come to the defense of
those that have 60 many -years
favored him. Wo also assert that
he cannot -show whore a Bingle
dollar is to come from to reduce
this large indebtedness. The
-amount required for county ex
penses as per exhibit of 1885 is
37,399.19, this is 38890 more
'thau all the income of thn county
from every available source,
henceUhe debt must increase in
stead of decreasing as they would
have the people believe. The
county debt was 54,232.39 when
the present administration came
in, the last exhibit shows an in.
debtedness of 91,835.83,. add 'to
this amouut say 12,000, 'for in
terest and you will have about
the debt ofUhe courity as near us
can be reached by the figures
furnished in the two exhibits.
The 'Times" editor being unable
o answer our .former articles on
county finances, and feeling it his
fluty to defend those from whom
'ho has received so many silver
tokens of friendship, seen proper
to charge the articles upon the
jpoliticiauB"who desire office bnt
cant;get one. This probably is a
better answer than none at all.
Wo know of no Republican can
didate for office, but if there were
it would not change the financial
condition of the county nor prove
otrrxssertions false. Ifonr debt
has not increased as much as
above stated, just point out to the
dear people whero the mistake is
and wo will make the correction
ivith pleasure. Let us hear from

early pait of Juno. In this cli.
mate it will not do to plant too
many in the hill, and the suckers

On Friday, March 12, 1886, Lewis
O'Neil luffeied the extreme penalty of
the law, by hanging until he wai dead,
for the murder ot Lewis McDauie,
committed at Ahhland November 20tfc,
1884. Thetacts in the case have been
told to often that they are well known
and it will always"be'"ftuieuibsred that
it was a cold blooded murder, the aa
saxin giving lis victim no warning
whatever and shouting him in the nide
of the face. The execution took place
in an inolosire specially built for thai

a'cb'ck the condemned man in charge
of Sheriff Jacobs and his deputies and
accompanied by Rev. Father Blanchet,
his spiritual advisor, ascended the scaf
fold when the Sheriff read the death
warrant and then asked O'Neil if he
had aaytbing to say. Contrary to en
eral expectations he would not confess
and would say nothing one way
or the other, Father Elancbet speaking
fcr him stating that the prisoner had
nothing to ray. The nopie was lien
adjusted by the Sheriff Stfd1 at 2:15 tat

in a coffin that had been prepared for
that purpose. A large Jtrowd of peo

House yard 'during the time but tbt
