To the Editor:
A great many statements have been
' made in the last few weeks in regard
i to the business affairs of Josephine
county and alleged extravagance has
been charged up agtinst the preseut
county administration. It might be
well to look at some of the items of
expense and see what 'and how our
money has been expended and what I
has confronted our connty officials. )
Within the last four years Josephine

! expenses $17,507.85, technical law
i yers combined with murder trials is
' one thing that has gone to swell this
fund, but the county court has no
! option in these bills and they had to
I be paid. The justice courts for the
same time cost the connty $1824.85;
on bridges, $10,804.45 has been spent
in four years; while roads have taken
the snm of $17,507.85. When the size
of the county and itn many rivers and
creeks are considered, the situation
confronting the county can be better
Another Item of expense that has ;
had to be borne by the taxpayers of
Josephine County is the Lewis
and Clark Fair. Our share of the
state taxes for that event amounted
to nearly $11,000. The county board
had nothing to do with creating this
as it wag created by the state leg'gla
tnre. Four vears ago the connty treasuaror
was six years behind in the payment
of .county warrants ;at the present time
be is only three yesrs behind, which
shows a vain of three years on the
Statements have been made regard
ing probate matters and the excessive
charges made by administrator and
attorneys. Now the way things aw,
it has practically proved impossible
for the county judge to control this.
In one probate case that everyon is
familiar with the attorney charged a
fee of ffr00 in about a $2500 estate.
The county judge cut off t'.'OO. then
the attorney appeals to the circuit

Mr. ChausHfl comments on a Waldo 1
estate where the attorne wanted a
fee of $1000, Biid was allowed $W0. ,
This was done as a com promise and
agreed to by the attorney for both the
heirs and the administrator.
To show what kind of grafting the
county court hns to be on the watch
for all the time, tafce th" printing of
the last delinquent tax list. Mr.
Change was given the work and
when it came to pay, he wa just as
greedy as any common niortnl; first
wanting Sto a line and then reducing

graft for he printed each title In this
