So as mi actual fact the county is
not one dollar In t on current
set of pvesent ownership maps for
the county, whatever they are.
The contract lias never been placed
on file in the county clerk's ottice.
but an order was made by the judge
to tlie effect that inasmuch as such
a contract bad been made that the
clerk was to give the gentlemen
named the use of any and all coun
tv books and records they miht
wish, and the lurther privilege of
taking them out of the clerk s oitice
nlo any part of the court bouse.
The contract hud not been signed
I last Friday, but we understand that
I the contract has since been signed
i bv two members. We did not get
to see the contract but the terms ol
the contract s told us by one of
the- commissioners are as follows:
Messrs. l'arker and Van Winkle
nre to make a set of present owner
ship plats or maps (or the county
ami their remuneration for the same
i !,... mills on the nssessed
valuation of the property foun.l on
the maps not assessed, and also the
nnt mi the valuation ol
the property just
them on thesupplemeu
they are just completing. 1 Here is
no limit in the contract to which
the amount might run, and the
board of commissioners claim to be
wholly ignorant of the probable
above amount of property is correct.
Add this to what the county lias
alrealypaid for assessing and it
makes the, neat sum of &.000 for
1893 assessment. It i an outrage
on the defenseless taxpayers.
Another thing: This VauWinkle
is the same Van Winkle who bid
on the transcribing the records last
spring. His bid. it will be remem
bered was $7X7, and being the
lowest was accepted, and as there ,
was no deposit to bind him lie
utterly failed to sign his contract,
and by bis failure the county was
compelled to give Virgil Watters
$5,440 for the same, thus entailing
a loss on the countv of $1,653 be
cause he failed to make his bid good.
This is the man that now comes iu
ami makes a blind bid with the
countv. We suppose he want to
make up for what be might have
lost, hud he stood manfully to" bis
but, and we must say liiwUeniu""
in a fair way to do jt.

for this year's assessment il uus
contract is made and carried out.
That the contract is vicious is amply
proven by the fact that the com

one line, letter or syllable of the
terms of the contract nor the re
motest allusion to it except in the
order mentioned above giving them
the unheard of privilege of taking

Our oblectlona to the whole busi-
ni,s are in the .uteresta of the tax-
payers and are as follows:
Mr. Parker was hired and paid
by the comity once for making the
assessment of Lincoln county, and
the price was set by law at $3 per
dav. He is not on .eligible person
to contrat t, to correct and complete
his own work. i
Hy a contract with th- county
Mr. , Parker has just finished a
supplementary tax roll in which he
was supposed to have all the prop
erty not on the original roll. In
Day for this he and Mr. Van Winkle
are to receive the state taxes on all
discovered .property not 011 the
original tax., roll. As both the
origiual,rollnd the supplementary
were made by the same person,
comments are are wholly uuneces
r.arv. This contract is not on
record in the clerk's office nor else
where, that we are uble to find.
While this work was being per
formed, which was wholly private
in its character, the contractors did
their work iji an office on which the
cotiuty paid the rent, bought wood
