TRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1887.
YTOJtSJS THAN N0N8ENSE.
The people of McMinnville are
continually harping about building
a court house and jail on a two mill
tax per annum. This is the sheer
est nonsense imaginable. Say what
they will those buildings will never
cost this county less than $80,000.
McMinnville will never be satisfied
with a ¿heap building; and she will
.see to it, that it is an imposing and
grand structure. Now two mills on
the dollar ie alxtut $8,000; which is
barely enough to pay the interest
on $80,000 the cost of the court
house. Taxpayers how long would
you remain under this enormous
extra and unnecessary debt on a
tax of two mills on the dollar?
There is not a man now in middle
age that will evfr see this county
out of debt at that rate. Marion
•county started to build a court
house costing $60,000 and. ended
with a building costing $118,000,
over ten years ago and is still in
debt.r.Claekama8 undertook to build
a court house for $40,000 and ended
with a ’building costing, Including
grounds and furniture, $64,000 and
are now in debt $60,000. They
raised this year $19,000 for county
purposes; one-third of which will go
to pay the interest on the debt for
the court house. The state of Ore
gon undertook to build a state capi
tal on an appropriation of $100,000
and have already expended over
$200,000, and the building is not
mo e than half finished at the pre
sent time. Taxpayers of Yamhill
oounty are you willing to execute to
McMinnville a mortgage on this
county for $80,000? If not vote
The Telephone claims great credit
for the present county court in pay
ing off the county indebtnees creat-
ed by the former administration.
As the county was practically
out of debt when Judge Townsend
took his seat in 1878 this indebted
ness must have been contracted
during the administration of Judge
Townsend, 8. R. Baxter, M. U. Gort-
ner, B. F. Lewis and Henry Lam-
son. Now does the Telephone man
insinuate . that those men who are
amongst our very best citixens and
the most capable, upright and hon
orable commissioners that Yamhill
county has ever had were direlect
in their duty, and contracted an
unnecessary debt during their terms
of office. If it does, the insinuation
does these honorable gentleman
great injustice. Every dollar of tax
was honestly and properly expended
during their terms of office, and
every cent of this debt was honestly,
properly and necessarily incurred in
building' bridges, culvert^, opening
up and improving roads ‘and in pay
ing current expenses of the county.
