------ ---
Elsewhere In this paper the re
port of Judge Springer expert, re
garding county affairs Is pretty
thoroughly covered. The allegations
It makes against officials are Indi
cated, and, as regards the sheriff and
the assessor, tholr side of the case Is
Briefly, Judgo Sprtagor, through
tho medium of his Investigator, al
leges Crook county Is administered by
crooks with one notable exception,
himself. The embers at suspicion
which he has fanned at the court
house for many months, and which
now flicker Into flame, make incense
for the nostrils of this Only Honest
Man. the County Judge. At least, It
Is so Intended.
Without hesitation The Bulletin
states Its belief that the entire re
port was instigated as n political
move. That does not necessarily
condemn Its findings, hut It does Im
pugn Its motives. We believe the
expert was directed, at least tacitly,
to find some mud to sling. He has
earned his money by obeying Instruc
tions. -
Election time approaches; the
Judge hates his fellow officials, and
seeks their political extermination.
A previous expert he secured for a
county audit managed to produce
only a farcical report which repre
sented nothing at nil except a waste
of taxpayers' money.
For the most part, as Indicated In
the news stories and communica
tions relative to It, we believe the
Ball report untrustworthy, and, If
not malicious, at least so weakly
based upon Tic t and knowledge that
It Is next to negligible.
The holy row stirred up by Spring
er In regard to the sheriff's "swip
ing" of his own tax rolls has blown
up in thin smoke. There Is no doubt
whatever that the sheriff was in the
right In this fracas. He has been
sustained In his actions absolutely.
Nothing was accomplished by the
Springer spasm but a waste of Judic
ial energy and, probably, some more
county cash. The whole affair was
an effort to get the sheriff "In bad"
with voters; no one should be de
ceived on this bead. Mr. Hiking, In
n letter printed iri this Issue, makes
a comprehensive and fair reply to the
report In this regard.
The insinuations against the as
sessor, as Indicated elsewhere In this
paper, we regard as utterly false,
while the legal opinions and dedu -
tlons or the "expert in connection
with this office are ridiculous.
We havo always believed, and have
given voice to our conviction, that
tho surveyor's office has been eon
ducted with gross extravagance and
perhaps Incompetence and has been
little short of a convenient meal tick
et for that officer's entire family.
On one head we do sympathize
with Judgo Springer. If his talk for
economy is sincere, we are with htm.
But we first wish to assure ourselves
that be Is sincere. Frankly, we find
It hard to swallow virtuous plans for
economy, as promulgated by Mr.
Springer, without a grain of salt and
a secret suspicion that after all thev
are but the old, old gag of appealing
to tho voters with the "lower taxes '
uong. We understand that some of
Mr. Springer's own shortcomings as
an economist arc soon to seo the light
of day.
Thuro is good reason to hellove
that a decided effort is to be made to
stop further investigation of tho
hooks. True, it Is likely that the
present "expert Investigation" Is far
cical and probably malicious. But the
faat remains that It there Is an effort
to choke off light from county finan
'- - -- - - n
cial affairs, a bowl of criticism, and
Just aritlclsm, will rise. Wo would
bo sorry to seo any county officers al
low themselves to be placed in such
a ItoloV Instead, they should do all
they can to get their financial affairs
sifted to the bottom, once and for all.
The allegation is made that the de
linquent taxes have not been collect-
cd properly for many years! that the
ttmo tins co'me when tho backsliders
should bo forced to pay up; nnd that
effort to check such procedure may
bo expected from thoso who woul.l
suffer, nnd who will try to stop ur
thcr Investigation because It might
result In costing them money.' On
this head Tho Bulletin urges that a
i thorough nccouutluK bo mndo. If

Tho west side of Crook county has
had some hard knocks In Its time,
when It comes to paying taxes and
then seeing them spent, but undor
the Springer regime It has suffered
more than evor.
As the statistics show, this por
tion of the county has had tho privi
lege of paying the brunt of tho taxes,
nnd then the pleasure of seeing them
spent elsewhere. The recent order
of tho court appropriating $25,000
for remote eastern districts Is a
last straw.
In the past tho west side has been
more or less powerless. It has pos
sessed taxable timber, but precious
